Default Hello Tuesday

Morning Mates, how is everybody today?
A bit numb after yesterday, with the massacre in Vegas and the news of the death of Tom Petty. There's just so much sadness and craziness in this world...

Fortunately, I have been experiencing the good in some people. During this difficult time both when James was in hospital and since he's been home, I have had good friends and barely-know acquaintances dropping by with cards, gifts, flowers, and lots of honemade meals and desserts. I am very fortunate to know such wonderful people and feel truly grateful for their thoughts at this time.

donna

Good morning Mates


Donna, I'm happy to see that people have so nice to you. You and James are wonderful people and you deserved all of the kindness that you are getting.


I attribute what happened in Vegas yesterday to a person whose mind fell apart. There are a lot of people who are mentally ill and don't show any symptoms. This guy was an extreme case.

I, too, am happy to see Donna getting support from neighbors and friends. It is wonderful to get respite in the form of homemade goodies when busy with an ill loved one.


Manuel, when someone "loses it" it is not pretty. I have been around ones who show symptoms and now know what to look for when things are getting bad. Was watching carefully about 1 1/2 years ago to one who was going through a really tough time but managed to keep it all together (maybe for the first time in their lives!!). Yesterday's guy was an extreme case that is happening far too often in recent years!


Quiet day, here. DH is working on a small project in his shed before he mows the lawn. Rain due tomorrow. Farmers furiously combining the crops that are ready to get done before the rains. May go out to eat later, after DH gets his work done. Have a better day, all!

Good morning. Overcast here, but I'm sure that will change as the day wears on.

We plan to go out for lunch, too. Today is meatball soup day!
