Don't know what happened yesterday. Forgot to post.
Mike - hope you are not stiff today due to your fall.
PapaBill - enjoy your concert today
Nothing exciting in my neck of the woods. Snow and cold. Son went downhill skiing yesterday and called me at the end of the day to drive up with his extra set of keys. Since it is a 45 minute drive each way (because the roads were a little icy and had to go slow) I was of course thrilled, but decided to be thankful he wasn't calling because he was being taking to the hospital for a broken bone.
Will be headed for Church soon. Then home to do some paper work, laundry, and Patriots later in the day.
Good Morning Jen and all you others,
I think I'm finally figuring out the site again. Ok, so I'm blonde . Hi my name is Anne and I am cyberspacically challenged. Ok, warm greetings from a slightly chilly St Pete Fl. No snow here. Took the kids to our annual Winterfest here where they truck in ice so the kids can try their hand at sledding. Kids love it and get so excited. Hope they feel that way in 2 weeks in Colorado. Supposed to be sunny though today here so won't be too bad once the sun gets going. Off to church and shopping. Have a great one
Good morning from Orlando. Had a lovely evening last night at my son's trumpet teachers brass band holiday concert.
It's going to be another gorgeous Central Florida day.....time for more yard work.
Nice to see you again Anne, hope you can hang around!
This will be a sad day..My girlfriend's husbands funeral is today..
I have thought of nothing else for 4 days now, and I dread what's coming, It will be so very tough. Please save a spot in your heart today, for this family who has suffered the tragic loss of their dear son, just last year, and now the Father, who loved him so much. I won't have the right words for my dear friend today, what can you say
You, make it a good one.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Good Morning from Central Texas, where it is cool, but yesterday got up to 83. I still didn't get all my cleaning finished so I will work on it again.
Trip, My thoughts will be with you today, as this must be very hard on you.
Everyone, Have a great day. Remember to Love!
Good morning from Southern California. No snow here, either, just another sunny and cool winter day.
Trip, I am so sorry about your friend. There is no right thing to say in such a situation.
Well, Keith and I spent a lovely Saturday at the Holiday Look In. Four beautiful mansions all renovated and decorated for Christmas. The homes were all built in the early 1900's. I tremble to think what they are worth in today's wild and crazy real estate market in California.
I still have to shower and dress. Then breakfast and the L.A. Times and some more ironing later.
Good Morning all,
Another beautiful day in paradise !!
Today I'm fininshing the scrapbook for a friend.
Later dh and me will shop at the local art show on the beach. Lots of really good arts and crafts and a nice day too. They do this every year, block off the streets, music, dancers, food,fun and sun.
Good Morning cruisemates! CHILL continues in Calgary. Temps haven't even gone below zero yet, but I am complaining that it feels COLD already.
Then a friend reminded me of my weight loss. That must be the difference, not carrying the extra "insulation" with me
Out to dinner with friends last night to celebrate Mrs. Kuki's birthday. They are going on the Get Lei'd 3 cruise with us.... so you can guess where the conversation went 8)
Have 2 friends in hospital who had surgeries this week, so it'll be a visiting day today.
Good afternoon from sunny Florida. We had our breakfast down by the Jupiter inlet, and will be heading back down to sit on the beach for a while this afternoon. That is if we can find a spot on the beach. A lot of it has washed away with the storms.
Trip, I've been thinking and praying for all of you the last few days. Just being there for your friend will be a blessing to her. There are no words that you can say.
I had a great time, last night, at my wife's Christmas party. The company has recently went back into private ownership (Sungard Financial) and they were celebrating. It was done very well and they invited a number of the founders so I knew many people. It was like old times. We didn't get home until after 3:00 AM.
Today, we will just be taking it easy and shoveling some more snow. I hope everyone is doing well.
Trip: My best to you and your friend and her family today.

I an sorry to hear about your friend's lost. I will kept them in my prayers. Below is a prayer that I learned when I was small. and then 40 years later I hear it in a movie. As my Grandma always said "It's a small world out there".
The Lord bless thee and keep thee.
The Lord cause his light to shine on thee.
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee.
And give thee peace.
I remember the same prayer, with only a slight difference:
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
May the Lord make His light to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance to you,
And give you peace,
Peace of heart and peace of mind.
Trip, I've been thinking of you and your friend's family,
