Good Thursday morning to all!  It appears to be another 'October's bright blue weather'. It never ceases to amaze me how the weather effects my very outlook.  As a lot of you, fall is my favorite, and it is like God turned on 'my light'.

I have a recommendation.  I love the flavor of pumpkin and these are WONDERFUL.  Jim said I should go back and buy 3-4 packages and put in the freezer for later in the year.....and I may just do that.  Most of anything I have ever bought from Pepperidge Farm is good, and this is no exception.
Volleyball team is still in the state contest. They play today and it will either put them in the championship game or they will come home.  Fingers xxxxx

Today the 'granny mobile' is headed to the mountain to pick up Grayce and her friend from school, take them to her house and we will meet Grayce's Dad there.  He will take over and take the girls to soccer game.

What is your new favorite TV series?  One of mine, so far, is the Mysteries of Laura.  She is quirky!
I have always enjoyed the NCIS series, but can't get into the NCIS-NO this year.  

My all time favorites are Criminal Minds and Castle....haven't tired of them at all.

I am old, and I admit it.  I am not naive, but seeing some of the new show titles blow me away.  One is something about being a virgin; how to get away with murder; mistresses, and I could go on.  There are a large number of horror, blood and guts and I saw plenty of that when I was in nursing.  I like 'feel good', happy, upbeat shows - always have and always will.

Don't let this picture scare you away from being my blog friend! The picture was made for our church directory.  This is only 1 of 2 pictures that Jim and I have had made together in over 50  I do have a request though, please do not post on Facebook or Twitter or any of the other social networks, as we are giving a copy to each of our children for Christmas.  Thanks and have a great day!

    I have gotten into 2 new TV shows..... Scorpion and Madam Secretary. I haven't heard about your new Mysteries of Laura show. And I'm still watching Criminal Minds too. I don't like missing an episode of that.
    I love the picture of you and Jim. It's very good. You have such a pretty smile. I'll keep your secret. They'll love it.
    You enjoy the cooler weather and the bright blue skies. It does feel good. Take care.
