Sitting across in the diner from Shrek while we had chocolate malts and french fries. He remembered we used to do that, once upon a time in a land far, far away....

Grandson Josh got his report card today and he got all A's. What a kid. It's a good thing he can't see some of the report cards that his grandma got.

This made me smile. Congrats to your grandson, JoAnn!

Remembering a joke:-

.... We get a better class of mugger in our neighbourhood. After they mug you they lay you in the recovery position....

I stoled Joyce's 1961 book of The Joy Of Cooking her mother had. Some pages are quite stained and her mother's notes are written all through of it. I bought computer paper and a thick notebook and I'm scanning all of the whole book! Ha! Very nice recipes!

I received a sweet picture of our precious Anna today! She is going to be of the orthopedic center next week, they shall be now fitting her with her first new leg and she shall be walking!

Uncle Nicu is doing well and is without the fever and very hungry! Also I am here with my friends whom I missed so very much!

It's a picture-perfect fall day here today. 'Bout 70F, no humidity (yippee!), slight breeze, and sunny, clear blue sky.

I just looked out our bedroom door, which overlooks the area where we have our pool. The pool has had its cover on for about a month and there is just the slightest bit of water in the center. Very, very shallow and probably no bigger than the area of a small card table. What do I see?

Loads of beautiful cardinals splashing about having a grand party in the sunshine.

How cold I NOT smile?!

I watched a gang of house finches mob a blue jay, kicking him out of the food bowl. The jay is sitting on the fence, screaming his head off, waiting for the littles to disperse.

Last thing that made you smile?

DH and I went on a lunch hour walk with Beagle, and I mentioned that I had not seen a praying mantis all summer. As we were walking the home stretch, DH spotted a praying mantis on the road! It initially looked like a dead rolled-up leaf with legs, and was at least four inches long. When it crawled into the grass and leaf litter, we couldn't even tell it was there. Beagle thought it looked like a nice snack, but we dragged her away. This one was brown, I usually see green ones.
