Happy Booooooooooday...

A bit snowy for us here in the Northeast, 
And no school for most (me? Not so much, POOH). 
However, it's candy time!
And costume time! 


somebody's been eatin' the halloween candy in our house....anyone? anyone?

Sounds Like a Good Fit

9 Chickweed Lane


I've been reading the comic strip 9 Chickweed Lane for years now.
Most folks don't get or like its extreme quirkiness, but I love it!
Today is especially good, considering the upcoming elections.


I really don't like elections. At all.

What Fun We Had!

What Fun We Had! by annbumbly
Ella, Connor, Auntie Jules
The four of us (Auntie Jules, Connor, Ella* & and moi) went to the New Canaan Nature Center's Fall Festival this past weekend. What fun we had! (BTW, any of you in this area who have younger kids in your life, don't miss this annual event!)
Even I, an old fart, had a glorious time! Needless to say, Miss Ella and Mr. Connor had just the very best of times as well! Auntie Jules (there on the right) kept everything on course...of course, and wasn't ONCE led astray by moi, though I really tried!

*(Don't tell her mom and dad, but Jules and I personally fed Ms. Ella a self-decorated cupcake, cotton candy and two cookies. We weren't very proud of ourselves...but we sure had fun! And, um, we'd do it again. In a minute! :)

love my family!

The Swing (for modern times)

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

~Robert Louis Stevenson


o to be young again!
