I’d like to apologize to the woman who I barked at today…and the people I barked at yesterday…there’s no excuse. Yes I was tired and have overdone it getting ready for this Estate Sale, but it’s no excuse. I hope you accepted my apology today as you seemed wary, which I would have been too! I’m not usually a crank-butt!
Let’s start that New Year’s Resolution of ‘pledging to look for the best in people and bring you a little happiness’ over again. So thankful that tomorrow is a new day!
This Christmas season finds me with feelings of both sadness and gratitude this year. For even though the season is filled with the joy that Christ’s birth brings, I selfishly mourn for the loss of loved ones this year…
My sadness comes from the loss of my very special, sweet father-in-law whose body succumbed to Alzheimer’s this summer…and from the loss of 2 wonderful friends this fall…and from the impending loss of another dear friend, given only days to live.

One night we were visiting with Frank.
He’s the cutest little, hunched over, Jimmy Durante nose character you ever did see. He’s got a twinkle in his eye and a sly grin when you say hello.
That night he regaled us with stories from when he was a miner.
The man is lucky to be alive.
He incurred injuries when a blast went wrong and he wound up underneath a pile of rock. Three months in the hospital, he got out and completed his recovery. His doctors told him he shouldn’t work anymore because of his extensive injuries, but he looked them in the eye and said “I have a wife and 3 kids”. And off he went to work.
At one point in our conversation Frank matter-of-factly, with a nod at the end, said…
“my birthday’s coming up,
I’ll be a hundred,
then that’s enough.”
Have a great day!
ps…the names of my new friends have been changed to protect their identity. 😉
In the last post, I told you about what a fun girl’s weekend I had!
This, is the rest of the story:
During our girls weekend, my friend from Utah had to work. She works for Delta and needed to train in some people from Alaska Airlines, so I had some time to myself.
What did I do?
