Happy Birthday, Kiddo. I love you much!

Philadelphia Eagles

We should not be striving for perfection, thank God, but for enjoyment along the road of life. My Eagles had some key players out for most if not all the game against the Bears yesterday. For all that, I believe they performed admirably in not getting their butts skunked. It was a close game, all in all. Better luck next week, guys!

Sunday Moments

I usually start earlier in the year for Christmas presents, but better late than never. I have finished several of these waffle knit dishcloths to tuck into boxes (as filler) that will go around the continental US and Hawaii to family members later this year. Deb, from Homespun Living, shared the pattern with all of us. I see she has posted that her Father is not well and she is asking for prayers for his healing.

During my daughter's last hospital stay, I got these mittens underway and finished them recently, too. It is a very easy pattern from a book entitled "One Skein Wonders".

9/11 & Vacation

What better place to be on 9/11 when you live in South Dakota than at Mount Rushmore. As we pulled into the park to pay for parking, I told the woman in the booth what a great job she had, to be able to talk to happy excited people all day. Imagine how stunned we both were when she said, "You would think that, wouldn't you?". It turned out that a car a little ahead of us told her they thought the monument would be bigger, they were disappointed and they wanted to know if they could just turn around without paying and leave.......

We were still excited, even though we have been there before. The flag was at half mast, as it should be on that day. The camaraderie we felt emanating from the other patriots and those visiting from other countries was powerful. The picture above was taken from the highway before you even get to the monument. If you chose to take the Presidential Trail, as we always do, you get to see the faces fairly close up and there is a story along the way about each President. There will be wildlife if you look for the movement off the trail.
