My wife took our youngest up to Duluth today and got him a complete new outfit. He's kind of into that Ali G /rapper look so it should make him happy for awhile. Picked up a Echo jacket for him. Was $188, got it for $80 and
Otherwise Live 365 and HR is back to not playing on my computer. Looks like I'm back to the free trial player and then into a perferred memebership which I was going to do anyway. At least I know its not my computer but some outside source since I didn't change anything around.

Well I survived my one-day trip to Chicago!
Flew into O'Hare at 6:20 am. Jumped on the "El" (or is it "L"?) and traveled downtown. The train trip took as long as my flight!!
Went to my meeting next door to the Sears Tower. Had Chicago-style pizza for lunch. Then went home. Exciting huh?
Actually these are the types of trips I relish - uneventful!!

I enjoyed going thru some of the older Chicago neighborhoods on the train. It seemed you could reach out and touch someones porch from the train! Another treat were the street musicians (or buskers, as they call them in the UK). There was a fellow singing a cappella gospel near O'Hare. Went I came thru later, he was replaced by a guy playing jazz on a sax. In the train platform (the Monroe station, downtown) was a guy playing guitar and harmonica and singing. He, like the others, was really good!

Well it is the start of another week. I'm doing some laundry and cleaning up a bit. Cheyennes party went well. The kids were well behaved but very loud. I have two girls left to be picked up.

It is so hard to believe by baby is 16. There was times I thought they would always be small now I miss that.

It looks like it is going to be a wonderful fall day. Hopefully I can get out and enjoy it today.

Have a great day

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to get caught up with all of you again but BOY! you've been busy!

I hope you've all enjoyed Halloween ghost.gif kenshin2.gif donatello.gif batman.gif alucard.gif ph34r.gif evil.gif jester.gif We decorated our house for the first time this year - a spiderweb tunnel for the kids to come through to get their Treats, electric spooky tombstone, spooky front light, pumpkins (of course!) - had lots of fun putting everything up! I got to stay home this year (haven't done that in years! ) and pass out candy, since our girls are old enough to go with friends. Got myself all dressed up in costume, found some spooky music on the web to play, huge bowl of candy ready to go --- we got all of 10 kids. I heard lots of kids going by with their parents, asking to "please can we go to that house?!!" but the parents would say something along the lines of "we don't know them". I understand their caution very well. Maybe next year I'll sit outside and let the parents choose the treats for their kids, talk a bit in the process and help to break that ice! King-sized candy bars can't hurt, either!

JP -- I'm sorry about the Game. It's really sad when that last one is over, I know (remember those games very fondly! - was in the marching band). I spent a lot of tears along with laughs, and I know this will stay with him all his life. It's wonderful that he has the experiences and friendships that come from it all!

Mike -- I hope your job searching is going well, and that you get something that will be enjoyable for a long time. That's important!

Rindy -- I hope you're staying warm and well! Hubby and I have already had that long-running "cold" (it's a 5-weeker sad.gif ). If you begin to feel it, get to a doc and get some antibiotics - that's what it takes to banish it, believe me. It's no virus. Otherwise, enjoy hot chocolate and warm fires, as we are here. I got the last of my herbs harvested yesterday, and said good-bye to my garden for the winter. The snapdragons are still blooming, and pinks, and monkshood just finished. There's still so much green and promise out there, but I know the frost is coming this week. Got to get some hay to cover and protect everything - tomorrow!

SB -- I'm still envious of you out there in the peaceful country laugh.gif Good luck with the last of your barn-building. I know you're anxious to be done, but be careful not to overwork yourselves. Will you still be able to get to your studio if it snows? That's important!

Gwenlee -- I'm so glad for your daughter that she's found such a wonderful guy, who obviously loves her very much! All the best to both of them, and prayers to your daughter that this current relapse is very short. Good luck with Cheyenne's birthday party! Oh boy! I had to laugh about Aaron's conversion to pipes. Our girls discovered to their surprise that they liked this celtic music I listen to, and so do many of their friends who've come over to our house and heard it. walkman.gif

CR -- Take care of yourself - hope things are going well for you! You're always soooo busy! Would love to see pics of your latest re-enactment, please cool.gif

Roberto P -- Oh my gosh!! Your son is an incredible person! Most kids wouldn't have kept their heads like that after such a shock, and I know you're very proud of him. He deserves every bit of praise!

Lord Rhys -- I don't think I've had the chance to "meet" you yet, but I'm glad to see you here - welcome! (I know I'm late, but better now than never). Hope you're well , warm, and enjoying the changing Season too. The Winter is coming too fast for me!

Hi Lady of the Loch! How are things with you?

Take care everyone! Will be back to chat again soon.

We always stay at home and have a family day. There is some chance that my daughter and her family will come down. It would be great to have the grandkids here.

Christmas is going to be a special time, we hope. Since Nick and Michaela will leave for China this spring, we hope to get all the kids together for Christmas. We will most likely not see the kids for four years while they are int he Far East, so we want this one to be special.

For thanksgiving all the family comes over and we have a big feast! For christmas, it is the same except we are a lot busier, going here and there, having a x-mas eve party, and x-mas night party and a big x-mas breakfast.

Haynes, sorry you won't see your family for 4 years. That has got to be tough on all of you.

Hello all. I wrote this rather long message and I hit the wrong button on my key board and it all got poofed out...argh! So sorry but I am keeping this note brief.

We are going to CA for Thanksgiving to spend that time with my sis as we always do. She will be coming here for Christmas.

We are having beautiful temps right now. Lovely weather in every way.

I have a RevWar re-enactment to do next weekend. Looking forward to that.

I wish you all much love, happiness, safety, good health and security. Talk to you soon!

Hey all!

I'm here at the library right now, using the free internet.

I'll probably be dining out with my parents for Thanksgiving. I talked to my dad last night to find out the plan. I'd been planning on baking a pie for dessert, but I wanted to know what we were doing beforehand. My sister's family has been dealing with a stomach flu virus for the past few weeks, so they're not going to feel up to snuff in all likelihood. Dad said that Mom told him she's not going to cook a turkey and all the fixins' just for three people.

Good morning everyone from a very snowy Wisconsin. Was quite the drive home from work last night with rain, sleet, and snow. The roads are clear this morning but there's still some snow sticking in the lawns. Winter's here! biggrin.gif

Starting the holiday preparations here as well. Going out to the newly renovated Bayshore Mall in Glendale this morning to check it out and see if I can't find something for my brother's for x-mas. Likely stop at Taylor and Dunn's (awesome little irish pub in Mequon) for dinner and rumor has it they might have a band tonight too so we'll see if do a little dance tonight as well.

Got my christmas music for band a couple weeks ago. We have a full orchestral adaptation for concert band of the Nutcracker. Needless to say the clarinet parts are insanely difficult since we have the majority of what are typically violin parts. Sounds pretty good, should have it in shape for the concert at Holy Hill.

Another Saturday morning in the office...wheee....I miss you guys though...feels like I haven't been here in nearly a month or more. Hope all is going well.
