THANK YOU ALL for your support and well wishes. When my brother-in-law passed he was seventy-four, which by today's standards is still young, but he truly had a wonderful life and no regrets. Each day was full and counted. He was loved, respected and had a career he was passionate about. I have no doubts that at this very moment he is enjoying his next cycle of life and figuring out what he can do to help someone else. I'm not going to wish him Rest In Peace because he was much too exuberant and full of life for that so I'll just say Godspeed, Don.
Since this is Thanksgiving week, I'm going offline again to spend time with family.
I hope yours is safe, happy and filled with love.

So many blogs. So little time.
I haven't seen much hype on this movie, but the HH and I saw it and enjoined it immensely. Gerald Butler as always does an awesome job of playing the flawed hero. Considering the back to back natural disasters we've been having recently, it did have me squirming in my chair a bit. I'd give it a five out of five. (Five and a half if the popcorn's good;) Highly Recommended
When taking care of our granddaughter while her brother was in surgery we were trying to figure out how to strap the car seat into our car. I asked her if she knew. Her response. "No. I'm the child."
Ask a silly question......Grin.
This week's Wink and Nod recipient is Elizabeth Varden who just happens to have a new children's book released called DRAGONELLA and it looks like all sorts of fun. She loves to travel and also writes mysteries and historical fiction.
Wink, wink, Elizabeth.
So many blogs. So little time.
I love this one but I've never been able to find it.
Spoiler alert: The F bomb is dropped in this one.
And this one is mine because some days are just like that.
I'm back home. The surgery was a success, which was a huge relief. He came through it with flying colors. Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts, prayers and positive energy that you sent our way.
While the surgery was going on, we took care of his sister and the critters. On one of our outings, this is what we saw:
Did anyone else see it? This picture really doesn't do it justice. It was like a chunk of the rainbow or a piece of a prism. I've never seen anything like it. Has anyone else?
We also took 'Ariel' Trick R Treating which was a hoot. The whole neighborhood was definitely in Halloween mode. It was like a big block party. There were many witches and goblins, standing on elaborately tricked out porches in the middle of spookily decorated yards, handing out candy. Trick or Treating Families abounded. One family was dressed as the Adams' Family. Someone had a Golden Retriever dressed as a lion with them. Everyone was enjoying themselves from babies to grandparents.

But enough about my corner of the world. What have you been doing, friends, while I've been gone?
