Morning Mates, 2 wonderful things about today: Sunshine and Saturday! Considering it was supposed to be a miserable rainy weekend, it sure was nice to wake up to beautiful spring sunshine.
My school is holding their annual Spring Fling, sort of a fair type fundraiser, with bake sale, cake walk, arcade type games, silent auction, door prizes, etc. so I will head over there today to see what bargains I can find.
Then tonight is trivia night at the pub, always fun to look forward to....
It's Saturday for all of you out there with hangovers
It's finally brightening up to be a pretty decent day here in upper East Tennessee although showers were originally forecast. Of course it's early yet.
I was scheduled to drive up to Bristol and help out again this year with the finals at Tri-Cities Got Talent but I have to admit, I just don't have the energy and what energy I do have I have to devote to the house. I seriously doubt it but maybe Jeff can find me a little extra somewhere or somehow. I guess I just have to face the fact that for whatever reason, I'm increasing in age much faster than my years belie.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and prayers for those on the list and a request for Blessings upon all continue.

It's going to be a rainy day here in Birthday Land. It's my granddaughter's tenth birthday today and the party starts at 2. I can't believe it's been ten years and she is growing so fast.
Yesterday was a busy day for me. I mowed the lawn, de-thatched the lawn, swept the lawn, mowed the lawn again and then overseeded the lawn. In between we went and got the license renewed, repaired the lawn sweeper (new chain and gears) and made two birthday cakes for the birthday party. BTW: I have an almost two acre lawn.
I'm happy. That was the most physical labor that I've done in six months. It was also nice getting on and off the tractor without really thinking about the knee. I'm not 100% but I'm a heck of a lot better. With all that work I was out like a light at 9:00 p.m. and slept until 6:30 a.m. That's a long sleep for me.
Well: I have to get to decorating the cakes for the party. I hope everyone has a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend.

Another beautiful day in Central CA, temperatures heading for the 80s.
And I am filled with anticipation. This morning the Scholarship Committee of our Lodge is gathering to read applications. We have over 50 applications from graduating seniors at local high schools, and as secretary I have glanced through them. They are amazing! So many great students, terrific grades, active in so many clubs, sports, and activities, hours and hours of community service, and most impressive of all the ability to write an essay that is not only properly spelled and grammatically correct, but clear, lucid, well organized and to the point!
These kids are not what is wrong with the world today. Every year when I read the scholarships my faith in the future is renewed. With these students moving forward and preparing themselves to lead, we are in good hands!
We offer 4 scholarships worth $4000 each, since we are fortunate to have a large trust fund from a bequest of a departed Brother. The only hard part of it is choosing those 4 out of all the outstanding students we consider.
And of course after that it is off to Middle Earth where my hobbit hunter Lavadoc is exploring the swamps round the Great River Anduin ...
It's not sunny here yet, but supposed to be later on .
We are going out for supper tonight to the Mandarin Buffet Restaurant, a chinese food buffet, but they also have ribs, roast beef available. The food is amazing and the choices......it's tough for a Libra like me!
We're celebrating our son's 28th birthday on May 1st., we are celebrating early because him and his girlfriend are going down to St. Maarten for 8 days this coming Thursday. They spent 2 months there a year or so ago working for a friend of ours and fell in love with it, so they are going back for his birthday..nice place to spend your birthday!
Donna, hope your Spring Fling is fun and you get lots of "stuff"
Todd, hope you have a "relaxing" day.
Mike, enjoy the party and I bet the cakes will look great!
Luanne, hope hubby gets the truck issues fixed, and I'm off to the library this morning, I'll check for that book.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday and feels good!
Good morning Sunny and cool here today and for most of the week looks like, I’m ready for some temps in the 70's. Happy 50th birthday to my big sister Linda today, We’ll be going for an early dinner and back to her house for a little surprise party.
The last few weeks my finger joints have been kind of stiff in the morning when I wake up, it’s only when I make a fist. I do have my physical coming up in May so I’ll see what the doctor has to say. I guess I’m at that age where things are going to start acting up.
Anyhow have a great day.
Mike…Happy Birthday to your sweet girl!

Good morning from the buckeye state! I am spending the entire day spoiling both my boys rotten with lunch, movie, gifts and anything else they want! I hate spending money unless its on them and after this crazy week I need a bit of cheering up! Then im heading out to watch my friends band play this evening. May try to slip their drummer some money to let me play a bit its one of the best ways to unwind!

Gearing up for a nasty afternoon/evening here in the "Sunshine" State. Meh. And today is my Monday. I wouldn't mind, but it looks like it will start up before I go in, so I run the risk of getting very wet getting from car to work building door.
