Halloween photos

I finally got to post the pictures!!
Ok, this is weird!! I took pictures of all the Halloween costumes this year with all my favorite little goblins.

They were all dressed so cute and they were all very polite!
Then Chris and Brian and the other little devils showed up
Then this photo of the cute little one with his mom. But what the heck is all that foggy stuff??? It wasn't foggy tonight, and there was no smoke at all, and I am using a digital camera! All the other photos are fine except this one!! WEIRD!!!
I took this one right after the other one and everything is clear. Did I really get a ghost????

Halloween '06

Well I have been trying to post with a picture for two days now and blogger will not let me for some strange reason! Hmmppf!
I'm alive and kicking, just busy busy busy.
Hope everyone had a safe Halloween.
I'm visiting alot of you, but just don't have alot to post about, and I can't seem to post pictures now.

I love October. The hot weather is behind us and Fall is here. The smell of woodsmoke in the air and decorations all over town made from cornstalks. I'm sure my sister will post some pictures of the scarecrows in the town too. This is from my friends that grow all the beautiful dahlias. He has a big vegetable garden and makes a huge sculpture in his front yard every year. Last year it was a horse and this year it is a scarey black cat. They love to do stuff like this, and I love them to do it!

As you all know my computer was off line for a week. I am switching to Comcast cable for high speed internet, and a phone that I can call any where in the U.S. and Canada for FREEE!!! So to all you Canadian friends of mine, email me your phone number when I get my new email address.
I was supposed to have it done on October 12th, but I had to go to work so I cancelled the appointment. I rescheduled the appointment for November 8th, but they forgot to tell the people that turned off Verizon! So, I was without the net for a week. I survived.
Elliott says hello too!

I will be catching up slowly, as I am still busier than I want to be at the moment, but life is good!! God is good!

Today started out like a typical Friday the thirteenth! I woke up to the alarms and the next thing I know it was 8:19! I usually get to work at 8:30. I pushed the snooze too much that I ran out of it. I jumped out of bed as fast as my crippled old arthritic body will let me (about 5 minutes to get to the bathroom). I got my makeup on and did my hair, got dressed, fed the cats, took my daily pound of pills and got to work in 1/2 an hour (my commute is about 5 minutes). I sat at my computer and realized I left my new glasses on the bathroom counter. Oh well not to worry, I have a spare in my desk (of course). I picked up the spare and POP goes the left lens!! Well I only felt like working at half pace any way. I did the work I meant to do then went to Oak Harbor to sign up some new Paratransit riders.
I visited Hannah while I was there. Hannah is 91 years old today.
I dropped in to see her Wednesday and she recognized me but could not talk. I asked her what was wrong and she tried to say something but babble came out. This is not like her. She has her wits about her and can talk, but can't hear. I asked the gals out in the hall what was wrong with Hannah and they looked at each other and told me I needed to talk with the Nurse. The Nurse said they are doing some tests and that her lungs were clear. WHAT? LUNGS?? She can't TALK!! Then she said they did some blood work and will do some urine tests because her urine smelled strong. NO SHIT! SHE'S BEEN SITTING IN IT ALL DAY!! SHE NEEDS CHANGING!!!
I was really upset, and she knew it. Her son showed up yesterday so she will be clean at least while he is here! I think her system is ready to shut down. She does not look well at all. We are supposed to go to lunch tomorrow so I will see what they say when I show up to get her. I gave her a dozen pale apricot roses and a card.
I went to band practice then got to AA 15 minutes late. There was a young black guy there that needed a ride to the hospital. He said he needs to get mental health tested and the ER said he could come in tonight. I asked him when the last time he drank or took drugs, and he said about a week. He looked like a nice kid but lost. I told him I lived in Coupeville and would give him a ride. OK folks, we live in a rather small town and I am used to picking up strangers and giving them rides so don't start telling me I'm stupid, 'cause I know I am. As we were going to Coupeville he told me his mom kicked him out tonight and he is 23 years old and very mixed up. I asked if he had a Church and he said yes. We then talked and I could sense a very scared lost person here. I asked him if I could pray over him, and he smiled and said he'd like that. HAVE I GONE CRAZY??? Friday the 13th, picking up a strange man in an Alcoholics Anonymous hall, taking him to the emergency room 10 miles away, playing gospel songs on my CD and praying over him!! HAHAHAHAHA Wow, things have changed in my life that is for sure.
It just felt like the thing to do at the time. While I was praying for him and asking God to open the right doors for him and to send his Angels down to watch over him, the guy was crying relief tears. I think right now he feels like this is the rock bottom of his life. 23 years old and kicked out in the cold foggy night with nothing. I pray he finds the help he needs.
Well on that crazy note, I will head to bed and read some of my murder mystery.
Sheesh, reading murder mysteries then picking up strangers in the middle of the night on a cold foggy October night! MWAHAHAHAHAHA
G'night, folks

How important does a person have to be before they are considered
assassinated instead of just murdered?

Well not really. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to the bathroom and a couple hours later I woke up to a strange noise but thought it was a helicopter landing at the hospital.
I woke up at 7:00 to go to Church and heard a loud roaring noise! It was weird. I went to the bathroom and it was really loud in there. I got dressed and looked outside and water was spraying out from underneath my trailer!!
I called the park manager and he came and turned off the water and told me anything under my house is my responsibility.
No shit, Sherlock. Thanks for reminding me!
Now this will be a few hundred dollars as it is Sunday and plumbers do not come cheap!
I decided to go to Church and deal with it later.
During the sermon the Pastor was talking about when Jesus went to a woman at the well and asked for a drink of water. The Pastor then asked if anyone of us has remembered the last time they were thirsty. I giggled and said yea, this morning! He went on to talk about water the entire sermon. (how ironic)! He mentioned a man that fell off the Navy ship in the Indian Ocean and was treading water for 3 days, and was thirsty. He mentioned also that the man had Faith and some fishermen found him and rescued him.
After Church I was telling a friend about my water problem and lo and behold he and another guy said they will come right out and look at it! They made two trips into town and a couple hours later the problem was fixed and they would not take a cent for it! Not even for the parts. They also said they will be back in a few days and repair the rest of the pipes as they look pretty old and they should be fixed. Wow, I was rescued from my water problem too!! I cried after they left. With tears of joy and thanks to God for putting the right people in my life.
My heart is full of happiness and love!
God is good!

When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there.

My goodness, where did the week go??!!
It is almost Wednesday already, and I am just getting going on the week!
Saturday I left at 7:00am and was gone all day to a Church conference then a few of us went shopping and then to dinner, and I got home at 7:00pm. I was really tired!!
Sunday I was sick with a head/chest cold so stayed home from Church and slept until noon, then stayed home from work yesterday with the same, and went to work today and did catch-up, and tomorrow I go to Mount Vernon for a meeting with the other transit company and then before I know it, Thursday will be here!!
Well now that was fun! I don't think I have anything to do this weekend, so maybe I will take Hannah out for lunch. We haven't spent any good time together for awhile.
I think it is bath time and cuddle in with a book for awhile!
G'nite folks!
