Yup. Halloween is fast approaching us. 3 days.

Now I think I’ll just go out and buy oodles of fattening candy, and hide in the closet. Yeah, that’s the ticket. I just knew a college education would pay off some day.  This is visit the DR.’s week.  A twice yearly physical with blood work. Tomorrow, a full eye exam, which will probably end up with me getting a prescription for glasses. And not the kind you take a shot of whiskey in either. Bummer.. But the good news: I get to take a stress test. Yucky. From one end of me to the other. Poke, prod and whatever else they do. Oh, its roll out the carts day, while holding the cat on my lap.
STAY SAFE WE LOVE YOU.

Halloween. 5 days or so, and counting.

Would a craved apple fool anybody into thinking it was a pumpkin?  Yeah, I didn't think so. Besides, I'd end up eating the apple. The pumpkin, if I had one, I would donate to the squirrels. They know what’s good. This starts one very busy week. Today is the 20th anniversary of Sony's PS-2.
 And here, a lot are waiting for PS-5 November 17 I think.  Had a good and bad surprise: one, I’m hitched on watching Trains on YouTube, special Japan Railways. Wow, they're great. The bad surprise is that my Fallout 4 games seems to have a startup software fall. Yuck and to think I was almost done with it too. No, this game is playing through the PS-4, no console to jump start the sucker. I guess either change the gems, or......write Bethesda game studios. They're big shots now, Microsoft just bought them, lock stock and skyrim. Oh well. Time to get on with the laundry.

No, the pumpkin isn't craved. but the snow shovel is near the front door.

Yup. I'm ready for almost anything, except Halloween. No pumpkin this year, candy is another story. I checked with my diet, and sure enough, Candy is listed at number one on the list. (What part of the list is another story)? Instead of a craved pumpkin, I have a snow shovel near the front door. NO NEVER KNOW.  When I got up, it was 30 degrees outside. I guess I have to get a move on to catch up with all the late fall to-do stuff-list.
But, right now, this is glorious Cold Sunday. Yay us. My cat Scooter seems to have gotten religion. He climbed up on my lap as the Mass was starting. And promptly fell asleep during the entire Mass.  Strange cat. Meow.  Oh well.
STAY SAFE.  GET A FLU SHOT TODAY.

It's Saturday. A good day to do "Nothing!"

Yup. It's 38 outside, the grass and leafs are wet. And I have decided to stay inside, and dream about all the work I might have gotten done today. IF...... it wasn't 38 degrees, if the leafs weren't wet. Ah....this is a little early this time of year. I always had the leafs picked up, the hose rolled up and the lawn mower stored for the winter. I have all that to do today, so should I say, sometime in the Non-38 degree weather. I found a disc of CD's that contained 48 some CD's, of just about everything I saved. All my Samoyed pooches photos, with the 6 or 7 different Sammies I had. And other pooches. Some Ludington Photographs I took when me and Tim B, Now, Father Tim, took a vacation together back in 1971. What great memories. Sitting on the swing, while listening to the first air play of the Moody Blues "A Question of Balance'. Ah.....wonderful. The two nurses I met (we won't even go there) and the other gal on crutches. A great time of life.  The James Gang's tune, "WALK AWAY". This is the stuff loving memories are made of.

TGIF and Thunderstorms??

Yup, just thought somebody came onto my front porch. Nope. Thunder!  Rain or hail hitting my bedroom window. Are we sure this is October 23?
Halloween is a week away and I’m giving out candy. No really safe way to give it out, and how do you sanitize pieces of candy?   Well did my Health blood work yesterday and discovered there was a diffe5rence in values. The Dry will go over this with me next week. Oh boy. Busy week this past week but nothing like next week. Yikes. Hey, it keeps me busy.  Today is also TGIF. YAY me. I can pretend to rake the leaves and get the hose put away and the lawn mower. Notice, I said, pretend. It's raining like all get out right now. And thunder. Oh well.
STAY SAFE WE'RE NOWHERE CLOSE TO BEING OVER THIS.

Its HUMP DAY, and yes, there is S.N.O.W. in the forecast.

It's HUMP DAY, and yes there is S.N.O.W. in the forecast. Goodness, the pumpkin candle isn't even lit yet, and here we are, getting ready to use a snow shovel?  Welcome to Michigan.  Today is the dreaded day us guys hate to see coming: Changing wallets! Yes, we plow through our wallets and decide what to keep and what to.....keep.  "We can't throw anything away, now can we?"  It was saved for a reason. Well, all accept those pictures of our High School sweeties. They have changed a lot since the 1960's. A lot of my girlfriends have discovered food is more important than wearing skinny jeans. I think they have a point there. Better to be how you feel, than what you think you should be like. Oh boy. Now I'm going to get it.....

Happy Halloween Next week.

Yup. Halloween is next week. YAY US. I'm going to dress up as a normal person. It should scare the hell out of people now days!  I can't really stand all the political non-sense on TV, So, I've got into the habit of going to YouTube, and loading up Virtual Japan. It’s a person with a 4K camera walking the streets of Japan’s different cities. Wow, such beautiful buildings, people!  It's amazing. And the bicycles. WOW. Motorcycles, bicycles. How do they ever co-exist on the same street!  But they do. Does my heart good. I do wish I could read Kanji (SP) or learn the language. I suppose there is time left, but wow.   But, they should all end after November 4th. I hope. Then, back to the regularly scheduled program.
I (we) can only hope.

One week to go before "HALLOWEEN'.

  Microsoft just gave me a Halloween Treat: They're ending support for Office Professional 2013. They want me to go out and buy Office 365. Really?? Maybe they're getting ready to go into the fishing pole business? Well, it certainly isn't the software company I’ve come to know and almost love. Nuts.
Here we are, on Cold, soggy (?) Sunday. This is about the 4th day the furnace kicking on has woke me up. Yuck!  I guess I know what I’ll be doing later this week when we have that 60 degree heat wave: put away the hose, use the lawn mower one last time. But the good thing, I’ll be able to bag the leaves with the help of Mr. Lawnmower. YAY me.
I have an interesting week ahead of me.  How about you?
STAY SAFE: IT’S GETTING NASTY OUT THERE.

TGIF, and, thunderstorms?

What a weather pattern! Almost 80 degrees last Friday, 48 now. Oh, and a mix of S.N.O.W. or/ and rain?  Well, that’s what they said we might get.
But, it's TGIF and that means an exciting weekend await us all.  Right?  Yeah, I don't think so either. I'm sitting here, waiting for the cat to hop up onto my lap, while listening to the furnace kick on. Welcome to Michigan!  Kind of early for this, but, better than pulling on snow shoes. I feel sorry for the kids. How in the world will they go "Trick-or-Treating" with all that is going on?  Another life adventure, to be sure.
Ok, time to bring up my plastic pumpkin and check the battery. Save a pumpkin for pie!
STAY SAFE IT’S GETTING WORSE OUT THERE.

It's "HUMP DAY", plus "BOO"

Ah, here we are. Craving out our pumpkins, getting the candy dish filled with sugary yummies.  In my dream!  I wonder how "Trick - Or- Treat" is going to work out this season. I hope, safely. Really. Corvud-19 is going crazy all over. This is not something we need. We're so close to some kind of vaccine, and possibly, a treatment. Let’s not spoil it now. In celebrating HUMP DAY, I'm going out to eat tonight and do my laundry this afternoon. I AM NOT GOING TO WATCH ANY NEWS CHANNEL. Well, Bloomberg is an exception.  Let’s see, got the snow shovel on the porch. Check. Go the jar of De-Icer on the porch too. Check. Got my winter triple layer coat close by. Check.  "I'm ready". NOT.
Ok. Here I go.
STAY SAFE THIS VIRUS IS REAL
