Thanks, it's not too bad. But most of my hand is bruised owing to the blood-thinner I'm taking. It looks like I've been in a fist-fight. LOL

Hubby and I feel the same way, Ryan! And with this post, Ryan is poster # 39,000. For his efforts, he wins a link to One Direction's recording of "What Makes You Beautiful." You can save this to your computer and listen to it any time you want! Isn't technology wonderful?

It is only about a 4 hour drive for them. All of us are staying at a house we rented for the holiday weekend. My mother is really looking forward to seeing the ocean probably for her last time. It will be a bitter/sweet stay.

I've killed 2 copperhead snakes the last 2 days. They were the first adult ones I've seen near the house this year. Can't wait until cooler weather with no bugs and/or snakes.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
What an answered prayer that your mom gets to see the ocean again! I'm praying for y'all and hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I'm terrified of snakes by the way. We have copperheads in Oklahoma and I hate those things. Anytime we're at a lake or area like that, I'm constantly on the look out for them. We have rattlers too, in certain areas of the state. Hope there's no more snakes out there for you!

I'll have to locate and buy up a couple more paperback copies, because our original copy is held together with scotch tape and crumbling!

The other one is "Murder for Christmas Volume II," edited by Thomas Godfrey. This is a paperback, but the hardcover "Murder for Christmas" contains the same stories plus some more.

Gotta run!
Thanks for the info!! They sound really interesting, combining two of my favorites.. Christmas and mysteries!! ��
