  2. 11:09 p.m. Saturday, October 3, 2020.

    A momentous day for our family as my daughter got married.  It was a relatively small, but beautiful wedding and her two year old son tried to steal the show.  He wanted to be in every photo shoot and managed to be in quite a few.  My daughter looked radiantly beautiful, my son-in-law looked awe struck and my granddaughter who was one of the bridesmaids looked sophisticated and older than her seventeen years.

    For all those who had their weddings cancelled or postponed due to COVID, I can't imagine your loss. 

    It was a fun time for all and it came together because of exceptional planning and a lot of work!

  5. Reading all the comments on the weekly update brought a smile to my face :) Unfortunately two hours ago, found out my earliest childhood friend that I'm still friends with, passed away suddenly last night. We've been friends since we were 8. Sorry, back to my crying again 😢 

  6. On my birthday, I can only hope and pray this coming year is better than the last one...

    I woke

    to woeful news,
    the loss of an icon
    and sheet anchor in the current
    wild storms;
    may she
    repose in her well deserved peace,
    while we wrestle on earth
    to bring about
    justice.

      It's your birthday, so you go, gurl. I'm watching the Bourne Identity marathon between chores. Matt Damon is way cuter than Pennywise.  :)

      @drpaladin... just smart, I guess. :P Seriously, I don't have a clue how I knew, but it seemed obvious. :)

  13. Sorry to say there will be a cliff hanger on tomorrow's chapter. Not having one just didn't feel right.

  15. My brothet is taking me blueberry picking on an abandoned path alongside the river. I've never heard of blueberries around here, they usually are in the mountain... but he's insistent they're blueberries and not blackberries. The other option is poisonous berries... 

    So if I'm lucky it's blackberries. Otherwise, if you don't hear from me in 24 hours, it means he either pushed me in the river, left my dead body in a shady footpath or poisoned me with berries :unsure:

  17. Short version:

    Spoiler

    MY BAREFOOT CAME IN CONTACT WITH A SPIDER!!!

    Long version:

    Spoiler

     

    It's midnight, I'm barefoot, and I'm walking towards my bedroom.

    As I open my bedroom door, my right foot comes down on something not carpet. 

    I scream and jump to my bed. I reach for my phone, turn on its flashlight.

    I aim my phone back to where I felt the not-carpet. After a few sweeps, I see it: a large Brown Recluse!

    I scream again, jumping back to my bed. I only leave my bed when the spider makes its way from the doorway to a far corner of the room.

    I leap into action, leaving my bedroom quickly in search of the Raid insecticide. 

    I find it, and dash back to my bedroom. The spider is still in the corner, and I spray that Raid, until the Brown Recluse is dead.

  19. Any advice for an author trying to resurrect his voice? It's been years and years, and though I claim to have been too busy, the truth is I lost the nerve and motivation to put words to paper. I guess a master's thesis will do that. But I want to make worlds and art again. Help a guy out?

  20. Got the grass and yard work done this morning.  The temp started out at 77F  at 8:00 a.m. with a feel like temp of 86.  I'm afraid to look at it now, but I sweated buckets and have been drinking quarts of water!   I finished at 10:30 and am still cooling down slowly before getting into a cool shower!

  22. Our cat died today. She was twenty years old and had several   ailments so we'd realised she wouldn't be with us much longer, but we are all very sad.

  23. Sorry folks, there will be a delay for the next chapter, as it just disappeared on me, just as I finished the chapter.

    stuffed if I know where the blazers it went.

    not happy at all...

      That's happened to me before. :(
