Moving right along

We're moving into the Christmas holiday season and it always makes me feel sad. I'm so far from my children and grandchildren, it's rare that I get to see them over the holidays.

All the grand's are boys and I have 1 great-granddaughter (this pic when she was 1 yr). I would certainly love to be near the great-granddaughter so that I could spoil her a little, but she is in Elko, Nevada. Brrrrr! Ughhhh!

We were planning to go to the Rock & Gem Show this weekend but, as luck would have it, my coat button caught on the cord that runs along under my chair arm from the joystick to the battery. It caused the plug end to dislodge from the joystick. When I tried to reinsert the plug, it didn't align correctly and caused one of the little (and I mean "little") pins to bend. Of course, when Ed tried to straigten it--it broke off. Now my chair is dead until the repair part can be ordered. I hope I'll have it before Christmas!! I'm rolling in a manual wheelchair now.

Busy week!


It has been a very busy week leading up to Thanksgiving. I've never seen so much traffic!!
I pray you will all be safe and have great fellowship with family.

Mum pics

Here are a few mum pictures. I didn't do my pinch backs as needed, but they are still pretty.

"Point Pelee"


I love this little minature purple-- it blooms so profusely and for a long time.
