I went out earlier to make a store run. You would think I would learn by now. I always hem and naw and go just when the sun is going down and at the level that I am facing it full on. Then when I get to the corner where I have to cross an intersection, I am looking right into the sun and can't see the traffic coming from that direction. Fortunately they can see me as the sun is behind them and they do have to stop to let me cross. I also learned today, that I forgot from last winter, that I need to wear my heavy slacks if I am going to be riding around on the scooter. I hate changing over to winter weather. And when the snow comes, then I will be house bound.

I can't take the scooter out when it is snowing or raining. I can't get the console wet. On rare occassions I will put a plastic bag over it to protect it and I always carry one with me in case. But when there is snow on the ground, I have to use it in the street because not everyone shovels their sidewalk. Also not every handicap access has been shoveled. So I don't have access to a sidewalk to go into a store.

Spike stopped by earlier tonght with Teddy. He took him to the groomers today. I should have taken a picture. He will be back tomorrow. I will take one then. The poor thing looks like a refugee dog from the pound. He is shaved right down to the nibs of his fur. I will post a pic of him with a full coat and with no hair. He has a small Mohawk on top of his head.

I just got home watching the terrible news on T.V. about all the random shootings at the elementary school in CT. So sad.... Our thoughts & prayers are with everyone affected by this tragedy.

as most of you know, my husband was shot dead in front of me. let me tell you, those parents will never get over it. a death from disease is hard enough to get over when children die. this is senseless. so was my husband's murder. i am not " over it" and never will be. send your thoughts to each of the parents tonight. it may help you as well.

Babe, sending extra special hugs for you. {{{hugs Babe}}}} There will never be any way for the families to get over it.
