Default Shining Saturday!

Morning Mates, from Pictou County, where the sun is shining but there is frost on the ground once again. It's -3C and you can see your breath outside. Will spring EVER get here?

Last Night we saw yet another amazing live show at the theatre in town.
Hal Bruce and his band Decade put on a 2 /4 hr show of hits of the 60's, some great old tunes that had the whole place singing along.
There were 2 girls in the band, 1 of whom looked like a red headed Gracie Slick and channeled her voice as well as that of Janis Joplin. Wow!
Here's a little sample of their show, filmed recently in Oregon:

Tonight, it's the pub for trivia, and I sure hope the questions are easier than they were last week!

Busy day today leaving in a couple of hours for Indianapolis. Our neighbors daughter is getting married today. She'll be such a lovely bride, I can't wait to see her walk down the aisle. I have to get busy soon. Lots to do before we leave. Have a good weekend all!

Good morning all. It's 48 and cloudy this morning. Supposed to go to 70 for a high. Housework is on the agenda today. A teacher the teen knows is supposed to come get a puppy. This will be the second one we've given away. Wish we could give the other two away quickly.

Have a wonderful weekend.

It's cold and rainy here. I'd turned down the heat a few days ago, and this morning the house was FREEZING!

We're off to taekwondo within the hour, and then rushing off to a children's birthday party at a play gym at 1PM.

I need to catch up on some work today and finish off the stuff for the accountant (our taxes are not due til the 30th).

Tonight is family movie night ~ we're watching Tangled on DVD.

Awoke this morning to contiuing heavy winds and rain (as we had since yesterday afternoon) but now the sun is shining brightly and the temp is warming to the high sixties if not a bit warmer than that.

Am being treated to dinner at the swanky restaurant at the hotel in town this evening by the editor of the paper and his wife followed by the US Army Band concert at the local performing arts center. the concert is free and every year Fran and I would say we were going but never made it. It looks as if this year I finally shall.

There is also a convention of Abraham Lincoln look alikes in town and a goodly number just from the pictures in the paper really do him justice. They are to be included in some manner in the concert.

At least I'll get to watch most of the Nationwide Series NASCAR race from Talledega Alabama and be able to watch the whole Spring\t Cup race tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a most enjoyable weekend and of course Prayers accompanied by a request for Blessings upon all continues.

Todd

Moiraine,

Forgot to suggest, have you posted the pictures of the puppies on Petfinders.com. It's free and we've adopted out a lot of animals as a result of posting their pictures on that site. Might give it a whirl. Good luck!

Todd

Shining Saturday, indeed! It was almost 90 here on Friday, and will be the same today. Unfortunately, I am disabled and won't be out to enjoy it.

I hope everybody else has a good Saturday.

Kuki, you have my sympathies regarding the weather.
Speaking of sympathies, I know you are/were friends with former premier Ralph Klein. I heard on the news this past week about his diagnosis with dementia, sorry to hear that.

Good afternoon from a sunny Orlando, fresh out of the pool and now sitting out on the balcony with a fresh cup of coffee. It was a very long time getting here but we did arrive around 2:30 am due to the storms. Were here, were safe and that's what matters!

Is Kuki a Kannuck?

Something you said awhile back made me think you might be a snowbird, and I meant to ask about it.

Yes Queen, Kuki is a Canuck, from Calgary. Geez, could I get any more "K" sounds in that sentence?
