yep, we're having mild weather too. second day in a row we walked around the lake, about an hour. there's one big hill at the beginning. yep, we are going to be sending up prayers all day tomorrow for Robyn, I'm sure they'll drug her up, but still.....I told her we will not leave her side during the whole thing. I want us all to imagine holding arms together around her. my dad would have been 93 tomorrow.

My cat and dog find the fish tanks interesting. When we first got them, my dog would just watch the fish go back and forth. Now my dog acts like the fish tanks are not even there. My cat on the other hand LOVES to sit and stare at the tanks. She had never tried to jump up and get into the tanks but the way she just sits and stares at them kind of makes me think she is planning something LOL Our saltwater tank is looking better now. It takes a while to get the tank set up but I love the colorful corals and fish you can get. Our freshwater tank is my favorite b/c it has live plants in it. The tank looks so pretty with the flowing green plants and little fishes. How are your sweet animals doing? You said that your D is doing well but you have other issues ... are you ok? I completely understand that feeling. I wish I could say my D is going good but lately I feel like I'm not in control and it makes me feel embarrassed :/ All my health issues have been acting up so of course my diabetes acts up too. I call this my "flare-up" stage. Once I get better I know my diabetes will too but I hate that I am not in control. My doctors are so great and I am very thankful for them :) Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!! Talk with you soon!

I know cat, sometimes it just really gets to me and I feel like totally defeated. right now I'm going to change my set, it's been 2 days and I should stick to my schedule. It is really nice here too, 63 and sunny, so we took a walk down to the end of the lake where the stream that feeds it was just rushing into the lake, all clean and clear. a little walking always clears things up in your head too.

Hello Cat. You doing Black Friday? People were camping out 3 days so they will be first to get in the stores. CRAZY. I survived Thanksgiving. Everything turned out fine. Tom did the cleanup.

Hi Cat. No I have not met Kona yet - still runs and hides.
I am going to a friend's tomorrow - about 10 of us are having a potluck noon meal with other people coming in the evening for boardgames, etc.`
Can you believe it will be 55 degrees here tomorrow? Spooky. I better get up early so I can take a long walk on dry pavement.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi, Catlover. I don't have my cat with me any more, as I live in an apartment which doesn't allow cats. She is at my mom's house, and I get to spend the whole day with her tomorrow. Yay! Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks Cat. It sounds like u & your husband will have some time together for Thanksgiving. U know eating out would beat the crap out of all the cooking for it. Got that going on today here. AND my 5 year g-duaghter thinks she's helping (hurting is more like it but atleast right now she's decided to take out all of the canned stuff out of the cabnets and put them in bowls.) I'm not going to tell her no again b/c when I do she says "Well u won't let me get close to the stove to help u cook" ERRRRRRRRRR! LOL!

Set the table using my Mother's double damask table cloth my good silver and my Mother's china which is a good 80 years old. My Mother's birthday was Nov 28 it often was on Thanksgiving.

Good Morning Cat. How are you doing? My BG 115 but still aching. I either did too much OLD AGE or ARTHUR RITE IS. It will pass. Very humid here 95%. I have a big kload of laundry to do. Russ saw the heart doctor yesterday blood work excellent but the answer to every question he asked OLD AGE, Almost ready for Reed's Diner to open need to pick up the fresh turkey. I did the holidays for 38 years now just Russ Tom and me but I will do the same dinner only smaller portions. My best to Jim. The purple lights in one photo is on a horse drawn carriage. Take good care. I care, HUGS,Reed

HEY Catlove! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! That meant a lot to me :) I had a nice birthday, my husband took me to dinner and bought me a nook book reader! We have been doing good, we started a new hobby ... we have a saltwater tank now. It's so much fun having this to do together. Our animals are so funny, they love this fall weather. It's so much fun to watch my dog and cat chase each other around the backyard :) How have you been doing? Anything new going on? Have a wonderful week hun!!!

Good Morning,Cat. I am pooped today. Yesterday was a long day up at 4AM to bed at 121PM. Tom finished the Marathon. The route was in the middle of a major highway no trees or shade right in the boiling sun. He lost 7 pounds. My legs and ankles like rubber today. This too will past >How are you doing? Your readings good. A big hello to Jim. HUGS,Reed
