Heaven on Earth

If anyone wants to know where I am, take a look at the link below. Brother-in-law surprised me and wombie with a stay in the same luxury resort we stayed in last year on our birthday. WOW!! I wanted to yell in delight, but I couldn't. I jumped and clapped though. It's really a piece of heaven on earth. Spectacular views. I had no idea that I'd be back this year. No idea! What an incredible surprise!!! I haven't stopped smiling....

If this link doesn't get you there, you can go to main website. Our cabin is "Enchanted."

Can you spell the best brother-in-law in the world? I can: STAN.

Chasing Leaves



I'm still on medical leave. The voice should be changing back to normal any day now.

In the meantime, it would be a shame to waste the delicious pleasures of autumn by staying in the house. Thus, I'm joining my twin and her hubby on a leaf-chasing road trip tomorrow. Not sure where the journey will end, but headed toward Pigeon Forge.


Till we meet again, enjoy this spectacular weather!

This and That


My 401K has taken a significant hit. I checked it again today, and the bleeding continues. In such times of uncertainty, it's comforting to know that my Anchor holds. Whatever today brings, whatever next year brings, I will be OK; my trust is in Christ Jesus.

Gotta renew my driver's license by birthday next week. Normally, I'd do it online and avoid going in, but I need a new pic terribly bad. Really.

Speaking of driver's licenses, Spencer's Mom is in the midst of a teen-learning-to-drive era. Bless her. I promised I'd share a column I wrote on the topic when my daughter was learning to drive. Instead of posting it, however, I found a link to it, so...here 'tis. It remains one of my favorites. It was written a few months following 9/11, thus, the beginning paragraph. Also, this is a Jewish publication, so when I reference "God," it's edited to read: "G-d."


Well, that's it for me. Have a great weekend, y'all. Hug someone you love. The kid is coming for sloppy joes this evening, so I'll be doing some hugging myself.
