WOW dinner in San Francisco. That sounds wonderful. Hope you enjoyed it.

I had such a great day yesterday. I met the family at Smithville and the photographer took some great pictures of us. The kids were getting a little contrary so he bribed them with some chocolate if the were good and let him take a few more pictures. Then he stopped into the old time candy store. Oh myyyyy I knew that was mistake. He got them eat a chocolate turkey lollypop which the both loved and ate completely. That was the good part. The bad part was that we all found candy that we just had to have. Baaaaaaaaad Mary!

We had lunch first and by the time we had finished he had come back with the disc with all the pictures. Then we went back to that evil candy store. I bought spearmint leaves gum drops. Remember them? I also bought a bag of orange pumpkin gumdrops, two peppermint Christmas tree lollypops and a cashew, chocolate, caramel thing. Chuck bought an assortment of fruit slices and some sour patch kids. Karen bought something sour, I can't remember what it was. Chuck asked if I was going to make the gumdrops stale and of course I was. Karen wanted one before it got stale. She just doesn't know the good stuff is always stale. I let my Peeps get stale too. Sometimes I even forget I have them and find them months later. That's when they are really good. LOL

After that I went home and watched tv for a while and then over to their house for taco dinner. Then we watched the movie Dark Shadows. I am a big fan of Johnny Depp and Dark Shadows. It was a fun time.

I got home around 10 and read for a while and then went to bed.

Today I did my grocery shopping and was going to go out and use the leaf blower since it was so nice out. Yeah, that didn't happen. I was just too lazy to get out there. I did get out the nine (yes NINE) Rubbermaid tubs of tree ornaments. Chuck had put up my tree for me on Friday afternoon. So I am all set to start decorating it on Tuesday when it rains.

Karen called this afternoon and asked if I wanted to come over for dinner because they were making gumbo. OH YUMMMM! It was perfectly spicy for me and Chuck, but a tad too hot for Karen. She was making a batch for her coworkers for their potluck Monday. So she will have to put a sign that warns it is SPICY.

I gave them a break while they were clearing up the kitchen and took the kids down in the basement to play. We had fun playing catch and something we call "Silly Whale". Jesse has a whale pillow. I have to close my eyes and he throws the whale up on his basketball net. Then I have to open my eyes and be very surprised to see that silly whale on the net and tell him to go back down and swim on the floor. Then I have to close my eyes again and give the whale a dirty look and say the same thing again. This goes on for 10 minutes or so before the whale decides to be good.

Zoey likes to sit on my lap and play with her kitchen things. I have to eat and drink from her dishes. I could see she was getting tired so I bright them up and then gave me a hug goodnight and off they went.

I looked at all the pictures from yesterday and really I liked about 50 of the 300 he took. So Chuck is going to make me a disc and then I can order the prints I want from Shutterfly.

I got home tonight around 7:30. This was a great weekend.

Tomorrow after my leaf blowing, I have to pick up some cupcakes for Jesse birthday party at daycare.

We are having dinner on Tuesday at Red Robin. I was surprised that he chose that one because he usually picks Olive Garden. Red Robin as you know is my favorite place.

Well, now that I've bored you all to distraction with my fun weekend, I will bore you again on Tuesday night. I can't wait to show Jesse his Jake of the Neverland Pirates, pirate ship and some of the little figures. If you won't tell anyone, I can't wait to play with it too. SHHHHHHHH

Finally got to my house this weekend; just lost a couple of roof shingles and some big tree limbs. There was still snow on the ground when we got there; then it was like a spring day by Monday - we had coffee on the porch!

We were able to take a ride to see the beach - they are already bulldozing it. I was heartbroken for all the people who had all their possessions on the curbs outside their homes - furniture, appliances, sheet rock, insulation, bags and bags of "trash". Many of the motels and B&B's had all the mattresses stacked at the curb. Looks like a long recovery ahead, I don't think things will ever be the same again "down the shore".

I can't even imagine the destruction. It must be so sad. I imagine it's like the 1989 earthquake - homes in parts of SF crumbled, freeways and the Bridge collapsed. But most areas were fine - except for rattled nerves, no damage.

My younger son and daughter-in-law are moving to NY the first of December. They claim that the area they're moving to has homes for rent. But I'm so concerned that they'll be competing with folks who've lost their homes. My husband has to keep telling me to stop worrying - they'll figure it out. (they're moving to live close to her Mom and grandfather & my son can work from home and check in at the NY office when needed.)

I gotta stop worrying! (but I do it so well!)

Awwhhhh, I'm sure they will be fine. Do you know what part of NY? It's a big place, I'm in Queens, only takes DH 40 minutes or so by subway to get to work.

Thanks, snapppyd - I sent you a PM.

Angelrose - looking forward to seeing the pictures you had taken. Your grands are so photogenic!

We had drinks and dinner at Pier 23 in SF. We met up with the people they worked with on Saturday, conducting interviews. The food there was featured on "Drive-ins, dives and diners" - whatever Guy Fieri's show is called. Good stuff. Not exactly the restaurant we intended to go to, but it worked.

snappyd I glad you had no damage to your home. It is terrible to see peoples lives sitting out on the curb. To lose everything like that is just too horrible to think about.

minniecarousel, thank you. I'll post them as soon as I get them.

I just got back from Jesse's birthday dinner at Red Robin. Both kids were just off the wall tonight. Jesse was so excited that it was his birthday and Zoey was excited because Jesse was excited. LOL He LOVED the pirate ship I got him and couldn't wait to play with it. That made me happy.

This morning I got most of my tree decorated. I hope to get it done my tomorrow morning or Thursday morning. Then I can start wrapping Christmas presents.

This afternoon I was kissing Ron's picture as I do every day and I just started crying. It kind of sneaks up on me at times. I'm fine and then something will happen and I will just start crying. Today it was because he isn't here to share Jesse's birthday with us. I used to think I was all done with the crying, but I guess that's not going to happen.

Oh thank you Julie. I can feel it in your post.

I do know that he is watching over us all. Just sometimes it's not enough.

I just had to tell you what a wonderful neighbor I have. I called him to ask him to do some yard work for me. He had volunteered to help me out. I called him Friday night and he came over on Sunday at 9:30 with his son who is about 10. He was waiting for his other helper. He cut down some holly trees that were mostly dead and got on his big mower and cleared all the brush in the back and on the side. His helped got this industrial sized leaf blower on wheels and blew all the leaves off my lawn that have been there for three years. My "lawn" is actually moss. His son helped his dad by carrying all the branches and limbs onto the back pile that Ron had started years ago.

They worked until 4:30 when it was too dark to continue. I found out his son likes rocks so I invited him in and told him to pick whatever he liked. Ron and I have a huge collection of minerals, geodes and crystals. Ron loved to box the minerals. We have boxes and boxes of boxed minerals. I told him that after the holidays I would ask him to come back and show him everything we have and he can pick out what he wants. I also gave him a holiday container of the holiday peppermint Oreos. They were just him and he didn't have to share. LOL

He said he would be back Saturday to finish cutting down the trees in the front that broke off in past storms and finish mowing down the brush in the front.

He also told me that I should take a walk down my property line. He seems our neighbor is throwing all his leaves, lawn clippings on my side. The little **** knows Ron isn't here to keep him honest. I also have to put up more NO Tresspassing signs facing towards the swamp neighbor.

Can you tell that we don't like this neighbor?? We live in the boonies. This man who bought a house in a swamp does everything he can to cause trouble for the neighbors. He calls the city counsel for one neighbor having more than three cats. We live in the country. Who cares if he has 5 cats? He made us take down surveyors stakes because they were a health hazard for his kids. UMMMMMM they are big things. Your kids are going to run and jump on them to impale themselves??? That's the only possible way it could hurt them. And why would your kids be on MY property line in the first place? Unfortunately the lady who came to inspect them, had no clue either and sided with him. We had to take them down.

After that little episode, I told him if he put one foot on my property, I would have him in court for trespassing. I told him that Ron was the easy going one. I was the mean old *****. That was the last we spoke.

So the next time Chuck comes over we are going to take a couple of rakes and do some creative raking so that my property is now free of his lawn leavings. I will also be purchasing at least a dozen more NO Trespassing signs pointing his way. See how mean I am? Every other neighbor gets along fine with each other. This man must be used to living in a condo where everything is regulated. I think we will all be very happy when he gets another sucker to buy his swamp house. It's been for sale every since he bought it. LOL Yes, it really is wet lands all around his house. The only place that is not is where the house was built. It floods whenever it looks cloudy and in the summer the mosquitoes have a party at his house.

Sorry to be so mean today. I just had to vent.

Mary I had a neighbor like that for 17 years - he made life miserable for us. He didn't like us because we were from NY - every time we had a BBQ (family, not wild) he would call the cops on us. We had 4-wheelers and every time we took them out he called the cops. It was horrible. I was never so happy as when we moved down the block - what a difference 500 feet can make!

I'm sorry you are going through this, especially now that you live alone. If you want I can come over and help you kick some booty!!!

We went to see "Scandalous" on Broadway Sunday. Look who I met!:



Kathie Lee Gifford wrote the play - I thought it was wonderful! The star is Carolee Carmello, she used to be in Mamma Mia, The Addams Family, etc. One of the best singers I have ever heard, I highly recommend this show

That is a great picture of you and Kathie Lee Gifford. Glad you enjoyed the play.
