Ready for Halloween...

Ready for Halloween


This weekend was a busy one. Friday night we went to another of grandson's high school football game to watch him play his baritone sax with the band at half-time. They had their new band uniforms on... which was nice, except with those hats and uniforms covering them, it's hard to tell whose who from up in the stands. Still it was a nice night and although it rained later in the second half, we enjoyed being there. After the game we *blew* our SW diets a bit by having some chocolate truffle cake over at son's house .  It was REALLY GOOD!

Julie (the cat that loves the countertop) discovered some birthday decorations that we had hung up and this video shows her noticing them.

Saturday morning younger son and grand daughter came over.  Grand daughter who enjoys taking all the toys out of the cabinet in the den and spreading them around - handing out various ones to each of us, has now discovered the bookshelves in the front room. She had a grand time removing all the paperbacks from the lower shelves and distributing them among us. I tried to put them back as fast as she took them out, but easily fell behind.




Here she found that she could climb up on the bench at the table with her bear. That's her dad's arm beside her making sure she didn't fall...

As for our Ebola scare here in Dallas: Our first case (Duncan) died last Wednesday. The Sheriff's deputy that was taken to hospital last week was a precaution. He didn't test positive for Ebola. But we now have a health care worker that has tested positive (although they are testing again for confirmation). They say that this person did have on protective gear... but somehow was still infected. I guess with all the people that were involved with Duncan, it isn't surprising that protection or no, some may come down with the virus. I choose to believe that they are doing all they can to keep the virus from spreading. After all, what good does it do to panic....

Hope you're having a good weekend. The weather here yesterday and today is wonderfully cool! Beginning to feel like Fall... although I'm sure the warm weather is not through with us yet. And that's OK as I'm not in any hurry for winter.

  1. I'm glad to know you're not panicking over the Ebola scare. I think it's blown way out of proportion, but then again, it's a very scary disease. Happy Halloween a bit early! :-)

  2. Sounds like a great weekend - I smiled at the description of your granddaughter, she sounds like a real live wire!

    The Ebola scare if a bit frightening. Frankly I'm glad I don't work in the medical field. Hopefully it spreads no further.

    Have a great week!

    1. Well, we can always use the hay in the winter to help keep the feral cats warm on the back patio. And I'll make pumpkin custard pies out of the pumpkins!
