Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of September, 2014.

Thank you to all those folks who read my blog and to those of you who leave me such wonderful comments.

I love hearing back from you.

I know from experience that writing a blog and then trying to read others is a feat all in of itself.

So thank you ….. I do appreciate all of the time you spend with me……

I love to write down what I see and hear.

Just my take on life.

If I can generate laughter, then I have been successful.

If I can generate you to ponder and think of something new, then I have been successful.

If I can generate emotions and have you feel, then I have been successful.

If I can write and you read my words, then I have been successful.

I am so blessed, thank you.

I hope that you all have a great weekend.

I am off to do laundry, give Mr. Alvin a much needed hair cut and then bath, some house cleaning and a few odd jobs followed by supper with family and friends to celebrate the son-in-law’s 40th Birthday.

What a great Saturday.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all those folks turning a new decade it is all good.  Just remember every time you celebrate a birthday you are alive and that is a good thing.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday, the 5th day of August, 2013.

Wow, only four days till my 56th Birthday.

I am actually very excited about this one … not sure why other than being alive and healthy and surrounded by everything you love ….

Well I guess that is reason to celebrate.  Right!

Today is a statutory holiday where I live so I have the day off from work, from the office.

I have a long to do list and I am planning to have everything done by 2:00 p.m. so that I can watch two of my favourite shows:

they are Star Trek Next Generation and Star Trek Voyager.

Both are no longer in production and I have seen them all a million times but I love watching them.

So on this gorgeous day …. it is time to celebrate.

I wish you all a happy, glorious day….

A few sips of coffee ….. write my blog and then I am off to get some work done around the house.

Thank you for reading……

Special Hello to: all those Star Trek Fans …..

Always, Carol and Alvin


FIRST LINE …..July 25, 2013

As we walk along the water’s edge the coolness leaves my skin with goose bumps and prickles, as if there is someone behind me.

July 26, 2013

Alvin pulls on his leash and brings me back, the fragrance of freshly cut grass fills my nostrils; my heart beat quickens, and I am unable to shake the feeling.

July 28, 2013

The sky is overcast with a hint of sunrise peeking through and the leaves of the trees rustle in the breeze, and I think how did I get here? 

July 29, 2013

What does that mean, and what is making me think these thoughts?

July 30, 2013

All of a sudden the leash tightens as Alvin pulls me forward.

July 31, 2013

My body lurches forward as I fight to keep my balance, what is going on …. “Alvin,” I cry as things appear to be happening in slow motion.

August 1, 2013

Alvin turns his head and with eyes as big as saucers; I suddenly realize what is going to happen.

August 2, 2013

I had no control, and could feel my breath slowly leaving my body as it was happening.

August 5, 2013

As the fog lifts from my brain and I come round; I realize that quite some time has passed as dusk has fallen, and then the horrifying thought comes to my mind where is my Alvin?
