We are back! I bet you didn’t even miss us. You see the Hubby and I went on a road trip to see his brother. Brothers are wonderful and if you have not called or gone to see your brother lately, then you should. We decided we would go by and see some old friends along the way and I wanted to attend a Folk Life Festival. Man, it was wonderful. Everybody was dressed in old timey things and playing music like you never heard before. You see I missed the Tobacco Festival. So I really enjoyed this one.
Of course I had to brag a little to my friends that I wrote a column in the newspaper and of course one lady told me she remembered I didn’t spell very well. I reminded her that they had spell check on computers now! I told them I would send them a copy.
But when I arrived home I was “BLOWN AWAY”. The title of my column just “JUMPED OFF THE PAGE”! The Hubby just had to remark, “Looks like you are coming up in this world”.
Of course I could not wait to call Mr. OJ and asked what on earth happened and he remarked he did not notice anything unusual. You see he said he was on vacation and someone else did the paper. Well, I decided I would not let that go to my head but I did make three copies and send them to my friends.
It was so sad today, I only saw three pontoons go by very slow. I waved as they went by because I am sure I won’t see them till next summer. Then one fisherman came by and I just had to go out and talk with him. He said about a month ago he caught a 5 pound Bass right next to our dock and he was trying to catch another. No luck, I saw him slowly go on around the bend to look for a new spot. I will tell the fishermen out there that the Hubby thinks the lake turned over…..whatever that means. It looks awful, really black looking.
People keep telling me we are going to have a hard winter and when we got home last night it was 80 degrees at ten o’clock at night. Mother Nature has really got her seasons mixed up. She must have had a bad weekend to really mess up the weather like this. I hope she forgets its winter and we don’t see any snow either. I won’t hold my breath and if I were you I would not do it either.
But there is one thing she is very good at and that’s the leaves are turning and it looks like she painted each leaf. But the sad part is that they die and fall in my yard.
For all you people out there Dr. Tulip will give you a piece of advice. When you rake leaves wear a mask. You can get them at Walmart or Walgreens and put it on your face while you are raking. I paid someone to tell me this and I am giving it to you free.
Well, that’s all I got to say, except enjoy every moment of the fall season because the awful winter is just around the corner. Also store up on toilet paper and Kleenex just In case you get snowed in. Bye now!
