Nevada Holiday

There is a wonderful Chinese Proverb that I read today the really touches the essence of our time with Tom and Kathleen.

One generation planted the trees,
and another gets the shade.

So it is that Ron and I will be indebted to friends and family for the opportunity to "sit in the shade!"

Thanks be to God

The End of the Road...Bad Haiku Friday

Carson City's the place
I'm still amazed and in awe
Travel this time by air

I promise this is the last travel Haiku until December...when we'll be off for the wedding. Now I know what it means to be a vagabond! Who knows maybe staying at home will be a treat. Since the summer began, Ron and I have traveled to Charlotte, NC; Billings, MT; Loveland, CO; Atlanta, GA; St. Charles, MO and Indianapolis, IN. The last trip on the itinerary is Carson City, NV and Lake Tahoe. Whew!!! What a ride it has been! Loving every minute of it!

Thanks be to God!!!!

Rules of Cats (and Perhaps Dogs)

Sam and Duchess
ON the bed!

Sent to me by my friend, Margaret, these started my day with a SMILE! Hoping it does the same for you!

The Rules

1. The cat is not allowed in the house.
2. OK, the cat is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
3. OK, the cat is allowed in all rooms, but must stay off the furniture.
4. The cat may get on the old furniture only.
5. Fine, the cat is allowed on all the furniture, but it is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.
6. The cat may sleep on the bed, but not under the covers.
7. OK, the cat may sleep under the covers by invitation only.
8. Well, OK, the cat may sleep under the covers every night, and on the pillow.
9. Humans must ask permission to sleep under the covers with the cat; only the cat may sleep on the pillow.
Found this in this month's Catholic Digest

Thanks be to God!

Click here to view these pictures larger

We had such a grand time this weekend. Here are pictures. On Sunday after Mass we went with Wes, Annie and the Girls to Steak and Shake. Grandpa's favorite. Then after the Girls and Grandpa worked on their penny coin collection, it was off to Aunt Mimi's (Marianne's) baby shower for Daniel. Daniel is due to arrive near October 1st. We are really looking forward to his coming. Please enjoy the pictures and thank you to Beth, Eric's sister, for having the party and to Nancy, Eric' mother, for hosting it. We had a wonderful time.


Thanks be to God!
