Oh Spring... you are almost here!
(Even though the sleet and snow and cold rain are upon me - I can wish!!!)


10. It's never too hot or too cold. It always is just right. And when it is too hot, there is always a little breeze.

9. The sky seems to always be blue... unless it is raining but then the sky is a really nice shade of gray.

8. If it rains, you can go dance in it and put on a swimsuit and some rain boots and call over some neighbors! I love dancing in the rain during Spring.

7. All the birds are tweeting in the morning, that's the first thing i wake up to. And it makes my day off to a good start!

6. You can sit outside and read a nice book! While all the neighborhood kids play and people walk their dogs.

5. You can open all the windows in your house, smell the freshness, and blast some music!

4. I can take strolls to the park and walk around my small town with some friends!

3. When you are driving in the car, you can roll down all the windows and blast the stereo !

2. You can wear tank tops and walk around outdoor malls without having to be bundled up!

And the number 1 reason Spring is the best season is because all the flowers are blooming and all the trees and grass are green and everything is pretty!

My most recent surprise was to travel to visit my Dad for his 70th Birthday.
What a surprise it was for him when I knocked on his door and told him Happy Birthday!
I had just talked to him a couple days before and he had no idea I was making the trip.
What a joy it was to make him so happy!!!

@Nospin - thoughts, prayers and best of luck today with your test. ((( )))

@BJ - thoughts, prayers and best of luck to you today with your surgery. ((( )))

To all others needing hugs, prayers luck or just a better day this one is for YOU!!!

Thanks for the start. Looks good to me. Everything is there. (that I can see, anyway)

The last surprise I had. Well, um...someone sent me a gift card in the mail this week. It's amount was unexpected. Hubby brought home ice cream and hot fudge. (we don't keep junk food in the house)

Oh, and the biggest surprise of all, Son ran the vacuum downstairs this weekend without being asked!!! (I've not felt well and couldn't get things done.) Anytime a teenager does something without being asked is a surprise!! (He'll do what's asked, but rarely volunteers.)

@ NC Kathy - hope you get your car back soon - you can actually feel just as bad if your bike has a puncture, my bike is my ticket to getting around, so I understand the way you feel without your car.

Edited for clarity - it is early !!!

@Zoo - those are great surprises!

@Redandwhite - I have snowflakes too so really looking for spring too.

A yellow banner for me, but high on my TBR list

It's a winter's day, perhaps the last day of an old man's existence.

Matt "Tug" Cutugno has lived a good life, that of a hard working family man. He has earned the right to a happy ending; he wants a pat on the back for a job well done. But just where is his reward?

Tug's wife and children are gone and his dreams of a future are now memories of his past - the war; getting married and raising a family; his days as a working man.

His present is filled by winter barbeques of grilled kielbasa for breakfast, grilled chicken for lunch and grilled zucchini and hot dogs for dinner.

As he sits on his lawn chair in the snow-covered backyard of the home that he built himself, a menagerie of wonderful people visits this extraordinary everyman who is not searching for himself, but who is seeking the meaning of what he accomplished in this life.

And with each visit from his wife, his children, his friends and neighbors, his war time buddies, the story of this brave and unsentimental man unfolds so that the past and present merge into something that can be called the truth of an entire generation of men who fought in World War II.

A recent surprise - my daughter asked if I would like to have my 7yr old grandson to stay over during the easter break - yeah
Edited - my brain is not really quite up to speed it seems - didn't get his age right !

Posted on Mar 24, 2013 11:10:06 PM PDT
KayKay thanks for stepping up for Leo. Hoping he is getting better.
@Nospin and BJ - good luck to both today. I'll be thinking about you both.

Y'all know my recent surprise. A crazy /wonderful/ lovely bunch sent me some serious graduation gifts. Still in shock!

I'll be back later today. Hitting the pillow hard! Have a good night / day, depending on your location.

Good Morning everyone!

Beyond Nostalgia - Romance
Many readers have said that Beyond Nostalgia is a story that kept reappearing in their minds long after they read it. A multi-category Amazon Bestseller, it is book that will make you laugh and make you cry. It will break your heart and then it will heal it again. You'll love the main character, and you will hate him as well. "Dean Cassidy looks back on a life filled with hardship and remembers Theresa Wayman, the bright spark that lit up his world when he was eighteen. As an adult, many years later, Cassidy continues his struggle to be successful in life, but can't move past his betrayal and loss of Theresa. Beyond Nostalgia is a poignant story about growing up, making choices, betrayal, forgiveness and moving on.

Cobbogoth - Fantasy
To seventeen-year-old Norah Lukens, the Cobbogothians were just a myth. But after her archeologist uncle's brutal murder, and being asked to translate one of his research journals for evidence, she begins a journey to discover the truth for herself. Chasing the myth her uncle was obsessed with, Norah learns that his murder was a cover-up for something far more sinister. If she hopes to save others from suffering the same fate he did--including the peculiarly magnetic James Riley--she must head to Iceland in order to stop the killing once and for all. If she succeeds, she'll gain the one thing she's always longed for. But if she fails, not even the gods can help her....

Dear Bob and Sue - Travel
This complete version of Dear Bob and Sue chronicles the journey of Matt and Karen Smith, who took a mid-career break to travel to all 58 U.S. National Parks. Written as a series of emails to their friends, Bob and Sue, they describe their sense of awe in exploring our national parks, and share humorous and quirky observations. The national parks are among the most stunning places in America - pristine wilderness, geologic wonders, and magnificent wildlife - places everyone should put on their must-see-before-I-die list. Matt and Karen take you along as they visit them all. Unlike a traditional guidebook, this is one couple's perspective on the joys and challenges of traveling together.

@Zoo Keeper - isn't it just. I love having a teenager. Mine attacked the lawns with our new whipper snipper this afternoon! Actually we both had a lot of fun with our new toy.

Hey Loz.

Morning, afternoon, or evening to all. I am off for an early night - my son and I tired ourselves out having fun with our new whipper snipper this afternoon.

I hope you all have a great day.
