The leaves-peak weekend, is usually on Daddy's birthday, today October 17th. Had he lived, he would have been 80 years old today, born in 1929 during some very tough economic times. Daddy was proud to be a veteran and I used this picture in his obituary 5 years ago.

We're watching JohnAdams, which was a HBO 7-part series. Here is a review - ... this handsome miniseries is praiseworthy on many levels -- as history, as entertainment and as a way to bring to life for new generations a sense of the sacrifice and heroism needed to establish the U.S. It also is a badly needed reminder that television is capable of so much more than it delivers most of the time, that it can be a rich and rewarding experience.
This morning, Mike and I helped out at a breakfast fundraiser for our local Humane Society. Here is Rachel ready to take your order.
Applebee's donated their facility, the food, the cooks, and a manager, and we got to keep 100% of the take, a big thank you to Applebee's, and they invited us to do it again. Below is Mike, Lee, Wendy, and Claudia. Or group served, buses tables, greeted customers, and raised awareness for homeless animals, And we had a lot of fun.

Our Appalachian State Mountaineers were on TV this afternoon and came from behind to win the football game.
I'm going to the Ortho Dr Monday morning, same guy that put my left ankle back together, I have a right shoulder ailment, and for all his education, he'll be happy to know that I, Miss Type A, has already diagnosed the problem :-) bone spurs. My GP had been giving me cortisone shots in the shoulder but now I'm surrendering and going to Ortho Dr. I'm thinking he will be suggesting surgery. :-(
