*** ATTENTION*** OCTOBER 2016 Update: I am NO LONGER available to PACT with anyone. My sweet Donna lost her battle with cancer recently & honestly I am not handling it nearly as well as I expected. Thanks.
I'm off to meet my daughter and grandchildren at Disney World to celebrate my granddaughter's 7th birthday. It's a surprise meeting -- my daughter set it up. I'm to sit in a certain spot and they will walk past me just before lunch. 'Hey, there's grandpa'! We're supposed to have some storms later so I hope it works out before they hit.
Have a peaceful Sunday....
I try not to complain about people. I'd like to think we're all doing the best that we can. I DO complain about THINGS, like when an appliance decides not to work.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Leslie C & Carol S -- always appreciated.
Have a super Saturday!
Eggs -- hard boiled or fried sunny side up! Love 'em. My cholesterol is in check so I'm free to eat them.
I took this photo yesterday of our little bit of 'Oak Alley' driveway. Our yard is filled with 100 year old plus oaks with lots of Spanish moss hanging from them. You can see part of one pasture on the left. The oak branches are as large as a good sized tree trunk. They get trimmed a couple of times a year so out Florida thunder storms don't damage them.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Betty B -- always appreciated!
We have a great nature preserve here in Lakeland, Florida -- the 1,267 acre 'Circle B Bar Reserve' which was a part of an old cattle ranch. It's located about 5 miles from my home.
It's noted for many species of tropical birds and other creatures from old Florida. It's been in the news recently because of the video of the super-large alligator that was filmed walking across the trail. Yes, he's my neighbor. Last week that trail system was closed off because of the increased activity of the gators. I occasionally go walking on the reserve trail system.
The sounds of the bird calls, the smells of Lake Handcock which tends to attract the wildlife and the beauty of the marsh & palm trees satisfy today's challenge for me.
Thanks for the morning 'E' going out to Chrystal P, Cheri J, Diana T, Betty B, Christy L, Jim T, Leslie C and Carol S -- always appreciated!
Have a wonderful day!!
Will do. I'm rushing off to a couple of doctors appointments this morning.
Thanks to my friends that encouraged me today -- it's appreciated!!
Have a great day.
Love spinach salad. That'll be my choice for lunch.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Betty B, Joanne P and Carol S -- always appreciated.
Have a great day!
Libraries are usually always in need. I also give them to friends -- which I did during my 'Big Purge' prior to my move a few months ago.
A quick reminder form my profile text -- sorry, but I'm not signing up for PACTS. I'm not ever sure when I'll hop off DC for awhile. I'm getting over a big loss & I'm in counseling. Thanks for understanding.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Betty B and Carol S -- my fellow Sunshine State friends -- always appreciated!
Have a great Monday.
Love the colors in this painting.
My balance is not good enough to put my socks on while standing, even against a wall. Gravity takes over & I will crash for sure. I'll pass.
Cloudy skies and a high of 76 in my part of central Florida today. Very enjoyable weather -- not too hot or cold.
Thanks for the morning 'E' Elizabeth S -- always appreciated.
Have a peaceful Sunday.
