LOL I have such fond memories of watching re runs of Star Trek when I was growing up, they were the best. I still like watching old episodes now whenvever I get the chance.

It was a hot weekend, but we had a good time. Friday night, we went to hear Jacob's guitar teacher, Chris, play in a blues concert. It was a great show! I know I've mentioned it before, but Chris is the younger brother of my old HS friend, Mark, who played in the band with me for years & years. It's funny to see how much Chris looks like Mark, and has the same on-stage mannerisms. Chris' drummer (Matt) is our drummer, too, so it felt like I should have been on stage instead of being in the audience.

You should have gotten on stage with them! I really like listening to Blues and Jazz especially in fall/winter. I would like to get a few blues christmas albums .... can anyone suggest any?

Saturday was all about hunting, and Jacob and I had a blast doing that. Sunday was relaxation at mom's...except for having to drag the broken pecan limbs across the orchard to the burn pile.

Tonight I have a city council meeting and Nancy has a church Ladies Circle meeting. Run, run, run!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Today is my first official day of job searching. If you all find something, let me know! ...Kidding. I am searching in full force. I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the next. After all, a milestone will soon follow!
Goodluck job hunting, I hope you will find something that you like soon.

Hope you guys had a nice weekend!

I have a busy day ahead. My oldest & dearest friend and her fiancee are stopping by later this afternoon, they live in Washington now. It'll be nice to catch up.

You must be so excited about seeing them, what have you all got planned? You will have a wonderful time catching up I am sure, enjoy!

Unfortunately, Harlowe has been having trouble again. She was sick all day yesterday, and I am feeling so worried & stressed. Breaks my heart. Can you guys please continue to pray for her?
Thank you ��

You must be so worried. Have you taken her to the Vet? I'm praying for her recovery and health.

I bet it all looks really lovely, the weather has been strange everywhere.

We turned our heating on last night for the first time in months! It is chilly in mornings and at nights these days.
