Yet another "Good Morning", my Friends.

And yet another count figure:
Days to the Season: 127
Days to Christmas Day: 169
A bare 5 days remain until our next Milestone, the 2/3 Season marker.
Can it really be that close?
More amazing than that, can a double-digit Season count really be less than 4 weeks away?
(Boggles the mind, it does!)

Well, same old weather, with.........
Ah! Doesn't even warrant repeating.
Suffice it to say, we are at 74 degrees right now with more rain predicted.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Everyone.
And see you at the 'Pines tomorrow!

they got a months worth of rain in less than one hour, it happened so fast there was nothing anyone could do, flash flooding closed much of the subway system as well. This morning there are still roads flooded, sections of subway not running, some tracks washed away, it is a mess. If you can stay on the main arteries going past the city it is fine, it is more the downtown areas near the lake that are hardest hit.

Good Tuesday morning everyone. Sorry I've been away for a while. It was a rough few weeks with my Mom that included long stays in 2 hospitals. She was near death at one point at her local hospital in Gastonia. Once we finally got her transferred to Wake Forest hospital, they were able to determine the problem and clear the intestinal blockage. We learned there is a clear difference in hospitals and doctors. She is now home with her colostomy working well but she also has a wound pump, a drain line from her right kidney, and a drain line from her small intestine. She can walk around her house but is still weak.

I can never catch up on all the posts but thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Have a blessed day.

I can't even imagine how scary that must have been. Glad to hear that the second hospital got it all figured out. I'm still keeping all of you in my prayers.
