Update

Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it. I love birds - these are so pretty! I have been begging Chuck for a parrot, but poor sport - he says no. Like all I need is something, somebody else to take care of.


I'm not even turning on the porch light tonight - I feel bad about it, I love seeing the kids and their costumes, but company is coming from Wyoming, in fact, I'm about to go out to airport and get them. I think they are bringing shorts - and the temperature suddenly dropped today - ooops. Lots of sales now so it shouldn't be a problem, but I'll hear about it I'm sure.


Sorry, I haven't been visiting blogs as often as I would like, the days are flying by. I can't seem to make it through one either, without a lengthy nap. I don't know what kind of flu hit me, but it has left me exhausted and run down feeling. And, I've been eating sugar which is like poison for me - but it tastes sooooo good - those little super sweet candy corns!
My company wants me to accompany them on their runs around this area looking for houses, but I would fall out - can't do it. I found one area here with low cost housing in a really beautiful place, but I just can't travel much further than that, right now anyway. So anyway, hope we all have a good time while they are here. At least my house is mostly clean!!! Mostly.
So, please everyone, have a safe Halloween - and now we can look forward to turkey day - I think Canada has had Thanksgiving already, hasn't it? Then, Christmas. Wow. Scary soon.

Still working on the shoes - decided they needed an anchor in that space. Also have committed to a drawing for someone, and a painting as a gift. But I'm moving along on the art pretty well, not stagnant like I was.

Ok - time to depart for airport - hope to get to all of you very, very soon.......
Darn, they still haven't fixed the paragraph problem - next post I will see if it will take the

code.

Yeah, we have our Thanksgiving at the beginning of October.

Have a good time with your company & yes, by all means, set some boundaries with them about outings.

Happy Halloween! Enjoy your visit as much as possible (like WC says, set some boundaries right away!).

Naw, I'm not stressed, not one bit. Just showed up at the airport and it was the wrong day and couldn't figure out why the guests weren't there. Duuhhhhhh! "H" and I just made a 2 a.m. trip to my grandson's house after a couple of texts from him, "I scare and sad, come get me." House all dark, afraid we'd get him in trouble if we knocked. He didn't answer the phone - did he finally fall asleep.

I once had a very interesting chat with a Minor Bird (Is that how you spell it?) on a school surfing holiday.

It was on a perch in the doorway of a shop in St Agnes in Cornwall.

I said "Hello birdy" and it said "Fuck off!"

I found this highly hilarious.

The teachers in charge banned us from going in the shop...to no avail I hasten to add....
