Well Mt Airy, Maryland didn't get much snow in the last snow dump, but all around us seems to have! I was gonna go to NJ but the roads are pretty bad as well as the route I take there, so might have to postpone going this time? No use to test fate!

The daughter's property is pretty hilly, I was just taking the dog for a walk and stumbled up the hill. Now my back is hurting HUM maybe I should sue! Hum maybe this is something to entertain myself while here! Ya know, I have an old nurses back and it doesn't take much, plus last time I was here found out have arthritis in my neck! no wonder it hurts. AHA maybe I should take some pills and go to bed and read! That sounds like it!
I already have her infernal cold/sinus infection! Nice visit aye!

Peace and safety for the coming New Year!

Just Thoughts

poinsettia from my yard last year- the weather got to it and its no longer there!

Well folks here I am sitting not much on my mind, guess that would be considered mindless, aye!? Look at the authors of the quotes of the post today, such divergent people and ideals! With one common thread which would be peace. What is peace to you? Can we ever have peace even if only in our personnel lives? do we really want it, and should we have it?

I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it. Dwight D. Eisenhower

I'm concentrating on staying healthy, having peace, being happy, remembering what is important, taking in nature and animals, spending time reading, trying to understand the universe, where science and the spiritual meet. Joan Jett

If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannon shots. Napoleon Bonaparte

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Mother Teresa

It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war. John F. Kennedy

Pat Down

On the news of late we have heard so much about the 'pat downs' at the airport. In the past week #1 daughter and I flew so we had to go through security. She is in wheelchair and can't walk independently, so she has always had to be searched. I think it took less time this time as it ever has. She did not feel violated etc as you are hearing on the news. For goodness sake they are only doing their job. Do folk scream when at the doctors etc the way they have been recently. How much fondling can be done in front of all the people in the airport for goodness sake?
My motto is let them do their job and get over it. We have asked for more security at the airport so just shut up and let them do their job.
Has anyone seen the t-shirt with metal lettering of the 4th amendment on it, funny really, but that's what we have come to, cynical acts just to get on the security we have asked for!? We really cant have it both ways!

My first day of Snow!

Hi folks, I know this pic doesn't look like snow but I love the flowers.

Dau #1 and I flew up to Maryland yesterday to dau #2 home for our Christmas holiday. This morn it started to snow, the kiddos came home 1/2 day because of the snow. They have one more day till their official Christmas Holiday, but who knows right now they may have already started it. they won't be sad I am sure. We have thus far been blessed with a couple of inches. Originally dau #2 said they were supposed to get about a foot of snow over the weekend, but that has been downgraded!? All I can say is I prefer the 60 degree weather we were having in Florida!

Christmas is a coming!

What a winter wonderland AYE, Not really. Daughter #1 and I are in a Christmas shop here in Florida. We have been here a couple of times now and come out wallets lighter and bags in tow. But we have such a fun spirited time in here! All its missing is the real Santa and mulled spiced wine!

Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and of true progress.

May the true Christmas blessings be with you and yours this holiday season!
