There's many more little scenes made up of the decorations, through out the park. Vandals tear some up every year . Young people who need jobs, some times have too much time on their hands.
Wishing everyone a pretty day. XO

Our snow is starting to melt and that makes me happy. The sun shined all day Sunday and it's back out this Monday morning. I can deal with snow and cold if the sun shines. I sat on the porch yesterday in the sun...but I was wearing a coat and hat. LOL.
Take care everyone, be safe, you want to have time with your loved ones this Thanksgiving. Oh by the way, the same daughter who took me to Amish Acres, finally made her flight out of O'Hare and is now safely in Utah with her son for the holiday. Enjoy this day. XO

This morning it was cold, colder than a tin t-shirt. 10 degrees with wind chills below zero. It will warm up and our Thanksgiving will be decent. Oh by the way...no new baby yet. Hmm??
Today the sun is shining, hot-dog !! Take care out there today. Be safe. XO

I want to tell you why he does this. Fifteen years ago...one morning we were going to go play golf, Ted was a bit irritable. He was sweating. We had just gone by the bank that day too. He said he wanted to go back home and lie down for a bit since we had some time. I asked , "just how do you feel?" He said he felt a bit nauseous. I said , "Ted, your are sweating, irritable and now feel sick...those are signs of a heart attack." He said, " let me lie down for about 5 minutes."..I said then here take these aspirins, and I gave him two aspirin. He was lying down for two minute and jumped up and said my arm hurts...so I drive him to the hospital myself and take him in ER and tell them he's having a heart attack.
He gets hooked up and they give him clot busters...I told them of the aspirins. They put him in an ambulance and he is on his way to the heart clinic in the next town. The doctor there does a catheterization . Ted had a 98 % blockage and two tinier ones. They asked us what we wanted to do...do a stent, or take some meds , or just go home and see if it happens again. Ted said , "Let's do the stent." That is what happened 15 years ago....Ted was only 48 then.
The doctor who did the stent is Ted's heart doctor. He called it a heart episode...not an attack ...because he got the clot busters and there was no damage to his heart. I am asking all of you to know the signs of a heart attack. It's important.
Snowing here today. :( Be safe. XO

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Today is looking wonderful...but there's something headed our way. I do not even want to think of it, but it is sss-no-ow. I am thinking of our friends a bit farther north. Chicago is going to get hit. So these photos may be my fair well to autumn 's beauty.
My granddaughter Lynzie's ,whose baby is due in the first week of December....yesterday made a trip to the doctor...she may have the baby sooner. I am so nervous.
Be safe today everyone. XO

I am going back to the library today, I may bid on one of these. It would be fun to win and give to someone. I would probably keep the bird things. LOL. But then again Ted and I bought 80 pounds of birdseed yesterday.
We ate lunch at Bob Evans yesterday and brought home some of their baked breads. Ted loves banana bread and I like the pumpkin. Two loafs for 8 dollars. We used to eat there about 3 times a week when we worked. Now we go maybe 3 times a year. It's good food, but pass on the coffee.
We are having wind and rain. Hope all of you have a good day. XO

The introduction was funny and the warning about those cell phones. Then the play began. Today, I realize that I may be sick...a "sick " person that is. I laughed so hard I was crying almost the whole play. It some times border lined bathroom humor, yet I laughed. Aren't older ladies suppose to be more refined? It sure wasn't me yesterday afternoon. At one point I told my daughter I may have to leave..I wasn't sure anyone else was laughing. I was almost beyond recovery from the giggles.
We seriously have some wonderful actors in our community theater. Even young people of our local schools. I read this play was produce in the seventies. I would recommend this crazy play to you ...especially if you are in need a laughing.
Here's Spam fact. Jay C. Hormel, son of the company's founder , wanted to make use of many thousand pounds of pork shoulder meat. He came up with a blend of chopped ham and pork , spiced it, canned it. This is how Spam got it's start.
Wishing all of you a great day. XO
