Our weather has turned considerably cooler, which we are enjoying--good excuse to put the fire pit to some use! Family will arrive by late tomorrow and/or early Saturday; so, between chores/preparation, I'll be able to catch up on EB's from last week.

Everyone have a nice weekend, and safe travels.

(Hope DO and JB had a nice afternoon kayaking!)

@Unabashed Liberal Thanks! Had a very nice time. Enjoyed the sound of sandhill cranes passing overhead, mixed flock of bluebirds and robins, flickers and others. Very quiet and peaceful out on the lake. Hope all had a great Thanksgiving.

Life is what you make it, so make it something worthwhile.

This ain't no dress rehearsal!

had a real good time.

Quiet here yesterday and today--but, family begins to trickle in between 4-8 a.m. this morning.

Look forward to seeing photos, if you Guys took any.

at the North Atlantic JAZZ Fest of all events. Rainy Day in Rockland Harbour. Bought this cd and another of his. He signed them both as we spent a few minutes talking about the area. He said he had No idea it would be that shilly in the summer. I laughed and welcomed him to Maine!

Alone for a change. Missed seeing the relatives but they are all in other states. Was nice to just be home.

Then went kayaking on a Corps of Engineers reservoir in the middle of reservation. Only boat on the lake! Saw a variety of birds including a flock of blue birds, always a bonus.

Have good one!

A truth of the nuclear age/climate change: we can no longer have endless war and survive on this planet. Oh sh*t.

I'm going to dedicate my post to a dear, dear friend who passed away a few days ago. 14 years of good times.

@Bollox Ref

mentioned that he was very ill a while back; I also know from experience that it doesn't necessarily make it any easier (when you lose a pet). He was such a handsome and dapper boy.

I had started blogging, so I posted a Memoriam in tribute to 'Murphee' when we lost her several years ago. I'm convinced that it was helpful (to me) in the healing process.

"Rest In Peace, Oscar."

I, too, am thankful for cats. Yours, mine, everybody's. Our lives would be poorer without them.
