This weather could be a whole lot worse than rain falling -- it could be snow. Let's count our blessings it's not and the just right temperatures are making each day marvelous.
Spoke with Tracy Neal on Sunday and she is doing somewhat better, after coming home on Friday. Sure loved talking to you Tracy and am praying for a speedy recovery for you. Do uplift Tracy in prayer.
Mary Henegar doing well on her birthday Sunday, September 27th. She turned "86". Daughter Cindy with her celebrating her big day. Always try to remember your loved one's or friend's big day as that really does mean an awful lot to them. A call, a card, or a gift is always welcomed and appreciated probably more than you could imagine. It lets a person know they matter and someone cares. We all want to have that feeling whether young or old.
Betty Sue Hullett, Lynn Hullett and daughters Joy and Baylie from Indiana at our house Sunday afternoon. A really good day for family to be together.
Great cookout / birthday party I attended on Saturday for Katie Underwood who turned "17" on Friday, September 25th. Several people there that evening and the food smelled so heavenly even before we could dig in. Got my fill and then, of course, you have to get a piece of the birthday cake for dessert with ice cream on the side. We all had one more good time as everything was just perfect.
For sure the hummingbird feeders coming down today so the little hummers can be on their way to a warmer climate. They've probably had their luggage ready for quite sometime now for their flight but as long as I keep these feeders up, they're not going anywhere.
I heard on TV today they had discovered on Mars signs of liquid water there on the planet and a possibility of life forms of some kind being there NASA spokesman said where we have found liquid water -- we have found life. First thing that popped on my mind that could be the "little green men's" home base, colony, or just main headquarters for them. Wouldn't that be great if that could be true? Just wondering if way back when their spaceship crashed here and they couldn't return home. Maybe their intelligence isn't up there with ours in getting the ship fixed and so they have been stranded all these decades on our planet. Clyde's going to have to do a lot of digging to come up with just why they are really here. If they need help, I'm sure NASA would love to do something to them -- don't really want to venture a guess as to what -- but knowing where they little alien's spaceship is would get the ball rolling maybe finally in the right direction I would hope and get them off the mountain.
Another news worthy item on TV that was sort of funny as this guy's pet monkey was on the loose doing some damage to the neighbors' yards, on top of cars and etc. Can you believe he was even getting into mail boxes? He might have been checking to see if he had won some big money or free bananas for a lifetime, if they even do that for monkeys, from Publishers Clearing House, if he was ordering their merchandise and entering those sweepstakes. It turned out really well for that monkey as he jumped into his owner's arms, when he came home.
Ruth/ the boss and sister Peggy / the diva doing okay. I talked with Ruth on Monday evening.
So many people having a rough time all around us and do need us to keep praying for them: Kathy Martin, Fay Pitts, Ruth Brown, Edith Miller, Carlon an Mai Nell Melton, Chloe Evelyn Bogle, Denise Stanton, and Tracy Neal, and also Gracie Bratcher.
