The Road Ahead

Here's our friend Fiona...she is on her walk in her park with her sweater on and feeling spunky! The road looms ahead...what is at the end of the bridge, the path that goes on, the one we just can't quite see... we have no idea what direction it will take??? Fortunately for Fiona, she is attached to someone holding her leash, someone who is taller and can see around the bend, someone who knows what is ahead and better yet for Fiona....she trusts the person on the other end of the leash! Who's on the other end of your leash?

DID YOU KNOW? Food Trivia;
The Lord's Prayer is 66 words, the Gettysburg Address is 286 words, there are 1,322 words in the Declaration of Independence, but government regulations on the sale of cabbage total 26,911 words.

Happy Wednesday friends,
Are you cold enough??? So cold we no longer call it "Global Warming" we now call it Global Climate Change....duh....I have always felt our elected officials should be sharp, sophisticated, urbane and aware...I am beginning to wonder who these people really are????? And worse...who do they think "we" are? They must have a poor opinion of our intelligence to insult us daily....hourly. But, we are good sports, we take it, re-elect them and blame someone...anyone else for all their failures. Hey we even give them raises, exemptions and perks that rival royality.
Speaking of perks, I just love being unemployed.
I am getting used to living way within my means. I am spending my time with me. I have found my niche.
Hope nothing breaks around here

Hello everyone,

Let's exciting. Shall I bore you....? Perhaps!

I love that word....Perhaps.....opens up a whole lot of options, right?

Well, the big news is I voluntarily opted for the "Senior" price on my movie ticket last Friday night....($9 for a regular ticket, $6.50 for Senior) to save $2.50, no problem....except the guy in the booth didn't even blink....guess I LOOK 60 (or over.....) See what I mean about my life???

I know I am in denial.

Oh, then I took our friend Fiona to "her" park for a walk and shot 65 pictures....of Fiona walking in her park....get my drift??? I think I will do a documentary and set it to music too.....

Finally get over to the Brew and Browse to "check" on my booth there...had not been since Dec. first, so knew I had to de-Christmas the spot and fluff it up for Valentine's Day....which I did. I still owed $ for booth rental which means I didn't sell enough to cover that you know....I think I am an Old, Boring Failure. OBF

Day 1 of 2009

Hello....I couldn't resist at least saying hello on this very first day of the New Year! I have been silent, I know. Sorry. You have not missed much, honestly.
November....KC for Tgiving
December....NYC with 3 grands and middle daughter for a very quick 2 and one half days in "the city"
December....Christmas with our family at our home for Christmas morning then to the Matt Smallwood's for dinner and games that evening.
December....A lovely long weekend in Little River, SC with Matt, Jacki and girls at their new beach house!
December...New Years eve at home, just us two.
So, that catches you up.

Here's a little "treat" for you to enjoy. One day I spent a delightful couple of hours building a gingerbread house with my two youngest granddaughters: Olivia (4) and Sophia (3), they had just had their Christmas program at preschool, which I had attended, and so were full of song and showmanship!

Happy New Year one and all!
