Upcoming Days


I hope everyone survived Thanksgiving.
Now we move on to the holidays. Today
was Black Friday of which I try to avoid.
Who was out early this morning?

Tomorrow is Shop small Saturday. If you
have more shopping to do consider shopping
locally. Find those shops that have those
unique gifts for your friends and family.


Of course we all know what is involved in
Cyber Monday. That is when people shop
for deals online. Shop smart and stay safe
while on line.

Giving Tuesday is the day that donations
are made. They can be clothing, shoes,
home goods to your favorite thrift store
or shelter. Donate books to your library,
a nearby school if they are needed or
a shelter. Monetary donations are
accepted also. Many charities benefit
from Giving Tuesday.

Enjoy your weekend!

Popped in to wish EVERYONE
a day of fun with your family and friends.

Mr. Ken and I will hang at home this year,
enjoy our meal, watch football and then
head down to the Country Club Plaza
with a bazillion of out closest friends
to watch the Christmas lights come on.
I guess my friends it will be officially
the Christmas/holiday season.

Friday we are going to an early morning
movie (read inexpensive time) and
avoid all the Black Friday shenanigans.

Saturday evening one of our favorite
friends is coming to dinner! It promises
to be a fun evening.

Sunday will bring some R & R.

Have a great holiday, safe travels and
I will be back next week!

Turkey Time



Well, we are a little over  a week away
from one of the biggest holidays

So I think a little trivia about the day
is what we need.

1. The first Thanksgiving was actually
a three day event.

2. There is no real proof that turkey
was served on the first Thanksgiving.

3. The woman who wrote "Mary Had
A Little Lamb" is behind the recognition
of Thanksgiving as a national holiday.
Sarah Josepha Hale convinced President
Lincoln to officially declare it a recurring

4. The first Macy's parade did not have
balloons but it did have animals from
Central Park Zoo.

5. We have a Good Housekeeping
Illustrator, Tony Starg to thank for the

6. About 46 million turkeys are cooked
each Thanksgiving. But not everyone eats
it, about 88% enjoy the bird.

7. President George H. W. Bush pardoned
the first turkey in 1989. The tradition
continues today.

8. Male turkeys "Gobble" female turkeys

9. Most enjoy the leftovers more than the
original meal.

10. An estimated 50 million Pumpkin pies
are eaten on the big day.

Happy eatn'!

Changes, an interesting word/phrase.
Some of us like change and some of  us 
are not fond of it. For me it depends on
the situation.
At school we have had so many changes
your head would spin and it has been
tough for me to go to work. At home we
are working on some changes  and yes
pictures WILL be coming soon. Those
changes have been interesting.
Last month we went to two concerts 
Cyndi Lauper toured with Rod Stewart
and we also saw Fleetwood Mac.

That is Cyndi above, she was moving
pretty darn good for 65.  Had not seen
her before, pretty good show.


Sir Rod came out. Now for a man of 73
he was moving pretty good. Found out
later that he had fractured his foot and
really wasn't supposed to be on it. Being
the man he is "the show must go on" plus
this was a rescheduled show  from the
summer when he had to postpone due to
bronchitis. He was AWESOME as always!

Not sure how much longer he will preform
but at least we saw him one more time! I
think Cyndi will be around for awhile.

Fleetwood Mac. Legends.
Most of the originals were there with two n
ew guys. There has been a fallout with Lyndsay Buckingham and he no longer is with the band
hence the new guys.
It was a good show, they played a lot of their
songs I knew and some I didn't --all are looking pretty good for their ages 50's to mid to late 70's.
So now I can say I saw Fleetwood Mac in 2018.

We have had a beautiful fall! It was in question
early on but that last heavy rain we had really helped!



These are leaves from our trees.


This beautiful bouquet is from my wonderful husband! We celebrated a change in the
number of years I have been gracing this earth :)
I had a great day and we had a nice celebration
after Mr. Ken got home.
The best part of the day was having the day off!
I got several things done around the house, some retail therapy, took myself to lunch, read Facebook wishes and enjoyed a birthday dinner and dessert. Today I am off again.

Ours lives are so busy and we encounter so many changes some good and some not but we keep plugging along.

We have a new month, time will change this weekend, the holidays are approaching,
decorations change as a holiday approaches
and the best thing I can say about it all is
take it slow and enjoy your world around
you .
