Hi Kids, I swear for the last week, the weatherman has been wrong,so right now the sun is here, they say it will go bye bye...we'll see.
Sunday, before I left for the Cape, I looked out the window,and, saw a mystery animal! I backed out of the room, said to Bruce quick, look out the window. When I came back with my camera, it was gone.
It was about 2 1/2 feet long, maybe 18 inches tall, brownish, black short fur, rounded snout....the closest animal that came to mind,that I could wrap my mind around, was a small emaciated bear.....but, it was quite unusual, to say the least. I looked around to see if maybe a Mama or Papa, would come strolling out of the woods. Just wish I was able to get a picture.
So today is Lucy Tuesday...so, that's a fun filled day..I started Emerald Moon, so I hope to get a few chapters in,and maybe a power nap, while Lucy naps..I was up early.....
Make it a good one.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Morning Trip and all Mates to follow.
Mystery animal eh? I remember the first time we came to see our new house, and while exploring the woods in the back, came across a really HUGE pile of dung. I hope I don't EVER meet whatever animal left that behind!
The weather here remains dull, wet and miserable. I thought we could use a little sunshine in this day. Here's a photo I took of a yard down the road from me, before it started raining for days on end....

Trip, I wonder if your myster animal might have been a boar. I can't imagine one in an urban area but stranger things have happened.
R/D, enjoy the sunflowers while they last.
Something strange is going on with this new computer, at least with Cruisemates. Few of the postings fit into the screen and I actually have to scroll sideways back and forth to read them. Also for the past several days, it has taken an abnormally long time to load each thread when I click on it and then also for individual postings. Don't know if it's my computer or not. Are you all sending everything out in Cinemascope?
Just routine stuff today. Went to the Cancer Support Group meeting last evening after having missed it for about six months. Next month's meeting is scheduled for the evening prior to Fran's death and I said I might not be there. Then someone said it might be a good idea if I did. They may have a point. We'll see. Whatever I do the 8th will be a rough day indeed.
Hope everyone has a pleasant day and of course prayers and Blessings continue.

Trip........sounds like a strange animal indeed......hope you don't run into it or mama or papa.........Trip....keep up your good thoughts......it has helped some......let's just hope it continues.........
Not much going on today.....just flu shots......oh joy......
I was up before the sun this morning. So I didn't wake up Betty I decided to do some paperwork and three and half hours passed in the blink of an eye. The nice part is that I have "re-organized" my filing and cleaned up a lot of old an unneeded documents. I was amazed at how much stuff that once was important no longer is.
Now that I have all that done I'm not sure what's on the agenda. We'll probably finish up the garage today but there is no hurry. The rest of what has to be done there can wait another week until I am off restriction and can lift more than my fork.
I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

It is a Fisher. They are making a comeback in your area.

Good afternoon from where it is in the mid sixties, in Virginia Beach. Fall weather has definitely hit the Tidewater area of Virginia. After going to the gym, I ran a wash and then met a girlfriend for lunch at Moe's. I am about to get the wash out of the washing machine and put it into the dryer. House chores never end! Hope that all my fellow cruisemates have a great day!
