Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day.  Remember to count your blessings, even the small ones and give thanks to God.  Special blessings go out to those who cannot be with family or friends for this day. 

Have a good one ya'll and don't eat too, much!

It beginning to feel a lot like......

This morning was a bit chilly, 380 F outside and 520 F inside.  I don’t turn on the central heating unless we get down in the 20’s.   It was time, however, to think about a cozy fire in the fireplace and a hot cup of tea. 

It may not be cold for some of you but for down here it’s a little frosty.   We don’t get too, many days of real cold so I decided to make the most of it this morning. 

I might just get my Christmas decorations down out the attic and spruced up, just that kind of day.

Here is my first fire of the year.

If you listen closely, you can hear "Louie", my Cockatiel, whistling in the backround.

Have a wonderful day!

Wednesday was not a good day!!

Heading out from home for a meeting, my friend and I were just a block or so from my house, minding our business driving down the road and this big old nasty dump truck decides to BACK through the STOP sign just as we were crossing that intersection. BOOM!!

He plowed into to us and just kept going, dragging us with him under his truck bed.  He didn't know he had hit us and was still backing up.  I managed to break free from his grip and get further down the street. He finally stopped about 5 feet in back of us.

 Needless to say, we took a mighty slam to the right side.   Both of us were not doing so well.  My friend was dizzy and her neck was hurting.  My chest was killing me and I couldn't breathe well.   My left hand was swelling big and my right knee was somewhere under the dash area hurting bad.   

All sorts of first responders showed up and we were taken to the hospital.   Both of us were x-rayed in multiple areas of our bodies and no breaks, thank God.  We are still very sore but it is getting better each day.   That was too, close for comfort, if we had been a few inches more into the intersection, I shudder to think what would have happened.  
Remember to give gratitude for each day our lives are so fragile.

Be Safe out there and have a great Thanksgiving!!
