Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 1st day of November, 2018.

Well HALLOWEEN DAY and EVENING was gorgeous.

Perfect evening for the little ones and the bigger ones to be out and about.

We did wake up to wet ground so rained overnight.

Thank you Mother Nature for holding off so that all the babies, me and Alvin could enjoy Halloween.

We had ….. 102 …… treaters of all ages.

Such great costumes.

Here are a few costumes including mine.

Some from work and some from home.

Staff at the office certainly out did themselves this year.

Every year they get better and better.

I even made some money yesterday giving out thoughts and advice.

How about that.

 

Best group at work was the Strawberry Shortcake gang.

Homemade cupcake by my friend who bakes my birthday cakes.  It was heavenly

How about that chicken?

Such great costumes.

So much fun.

We even took the time to go for a walk after work.

The bus got me home just after 5:15 p.m. last night.

At 5:30 p.m. we were leaving home and there were treaters out and about.

I figured that Alvin needed a walk as did I.

It was early yet.

When we got to Teddy’s house – Alvin beelined for the front steps and there was not reigning him back.

So we rang the door and I only meant to say hi and seconds later my friend handed me supper in a container (which was still hot).

So sweet.

Then all I had to do was open the container and dig in.

It was amazing.

Roast beef and gravy, potatoes, carrots and more.

So so good.

I am so blessed to have such thoughtful friends.

Poor Alvin did not wish to eat his supper when he caught a whiff of mine.

Oh well it all worked out.

 

Alvin loved the kiddies as much as they did him.

He received lots of cuddles and hugs.

Lots of compliments … he did.

 

More thing more and I have to go.

A few years back we rescued a puppy that had got away from his home.

We found his home.

Since that time his Dad and two human brothers drop by on Halloween to say “thank you” and he always says …. “do you remember me?”

I say now “yes, I do.”

So sweet.

They live several blocks away.

 

Have a great first day of November.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who were out and about last night ….

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 7th day of  June, 2016.

The sun is shining and it is calm this morning after an evening and overnight filled with thunder and lightning.

Despite Mother Nature’s good attempts “no rain.”

 

I had the most strange dreams during the early morning hours and after we hit the sofa for some extra zzz’s.

I had sold my house and moved into this old apartment.

It was huge.

When I was going through the cupboards I noticed there were foil pans, a mop bucket (they were floor to ceiling cupboards) and lots of odds and ends.

This always makes me nervous.

So much so that I cannot take things out of the cupboard.

Then I noticed that there was water under the window.

The floor was slanted so it was about a foot of water on the floor.

Just on the one side of the room.

Very strange.

So I called the maintenance guy.

He said that an old woman had been running the water in the sink when she died.

I found it strange that after all that time no one cleaned it up.

Why had I not seen this apartment before I moved in?

Anyway there was a bit more but it was strange.

I do not remember Alvin but someone had been there with me visiting and called out from another room  “oh no, there is a mouse.”

Anyway I am sure he was there somewhere …… because I do not go anywhere without him.

It is funny the things that we dream.

 

Back to reality.

Almost time to leave for work.

Gotta run.

Argh.

 

Special Hello to: all those people who have odd dreams.

Always, Carol and Alvin
