Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!! How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. Of course today was another day at work for me. I hope you are all having a wonderful Halloween weekend. I ate a lot of junk food and sweets at work in certain offices. I am a bit sweetened out with all of the stuff I ate today. Tomorrow is officially Halloween so I hope you all have a good Halloween as well as a safe one.

I do have a bit of news.....I will soon be getting a dog tomorrow which is a 3 and a half pound Jack Russel Terrier named Chip. He is a 4 month old puppy. I can't wait to see him. We are buying him from a lady which we found online. Today my folks and I went to PetSmart and bought a crate for him as well as a leash and a pad for his crate and some dog food and a toy which you can put his treat in and the dog plays with it until he finds a way to get to the treat. The dog's name is Chip which we are keeping that name. I do hope that Chip likes my folks and I. I can't wait until I get to see Chip in person. I think that having a new addition to our family will be a nice one. I will enjoy having a new addition to our family which is nice. I am going to pay for Chip and he will officially be ours tomorrow. I do hope that Chip will enjoy being with our family.

Anywho I did finish the book "Skipping Christmas" by John Grisham and I liked the book. I think that it is a great book to read anytime. I did start reading the book "The Wednesday Sisters" by the writer Meg Waite Clayton. So far I like the book and I will have to let you know how it goes.

So how was your day my dear world ? Did you all have a really nice Friday ? It was a bit of a rainy day in my neck of the woods. I heard that its going to rain tomorrow which I am beginning to tire of all the rain we are getting. That's all for now. I'll talk to you later.

Have a spooktacular Halloween everyone !!!!!!!!

Update For Wednesday....

Hello everyone !!!!!!!

Good evening how is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. We have been getting quite a bit of rain in my neck of the woods. I have been doing some reading of a book called "Unhallowed Ground" by the writer Heather Graham since its getting to be Halloween. The book was pretty good it was a mystery. I just finished it today and I have to say that I highly recommend it. I think that Heather Graham is a great writer. I just started another book called "Skipping Christmas" by the writer John Grisham. Of course its not Christmas just yet but it soon will be. Are you getting ready for Christmas ??? Have you done any Christmas shopping ?? I have bought a few ornaments for my Christmas tree that my coworker's and I put up every year. I also bought the book "Dashing Through The Snow" by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark. I will probably read it for the holidays. are things in your neck of the woods ? There was a fire at my work on the 4th floor on Wednesday. The 4th floor had to be evacuated until 1:00 it turns out that it was a motor smoking from a transformer. All is alright at work now and of course the fire/rescue crew came to the work and things are alright now.

I'll talk to you again later.

A New Camper....

Hello dear world
Good evening everyone. I hope you all had a really nice Saturday. It was a little cool today in my neck of the woods. This morning my folks and I and my niece's went for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A. The breakfast there is always good.
After eating my folks and I and my niece's went to Peco Camper's which is in Tucker, Georgia. We got a brand new Coachmen RV which is quite nice. There is a guy who works there named Adam. He did a really great walk through with us to help us learn about the camper. The Coachmen RV is a 33 footer and it is a really nice camper trailer. I can't wait to go camping in it. My auntie boobie and my uncle tony came over for a few minutes to see it and they liked it. When we got home we spent quite a bit of time in the camper. It has a lot of room and space which is conveinent for my family and I. I think we will enjoy quite a lot. The inside looks really amazing as well as the outside. The RV was the one that I had picked out when I first saw it at PECO Camper's.
So how was your day my dear world ? Did you have a really nice Saturday ? I do hope that all is well in your neck of the woods ? I hope that you are having a really nice weekend. I hope that you and your loved ones are all well and I will talk to you again soon.
Take care

News For Friday....

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. Did anyone miss me ? I hope you all had a great week. I have been working as usual. It was a rainy day today in Georgia.

Anywho...I have started reading the book "Prayers For Sale" by Sandra Dallas. The book is really really really good. The book starts off in the year 1936. There is a woman in the book named Hennie Comfort who is 86-years-old. Hennie lives in the high altitude of the Rocky Mountains in Middle Swan, Colorado. At Hennie's gate is a sign reading "Prayers For Sale". Its here that she meets 17-year old Nit who asks for a prayer of her own. Despite the sign Hennie does NOT sell prayers instead she gives them freely to those who need them. Nit has just moved with her husband to Middle Swan, Colorado. Apparently Nit before moving to Middle Swan she lost a baby. Hennie also lost a child. I like reading Prayers For Sale its a really interesting book. Hennie and Nit are interesting people and I can't wait to read more of the book.

In other news my coworker's and I have been sending my other coworker Francis get well cards since she is still out of work on sick leave. She is still out taking radiation treatments since she had a lumpectomy to take out a mass in her breast which had cancer in it. They are giving her radiation just to be on the safe side. She will be returning to work in November. I sure have missed her. She always made us laugh and I still talk to her on the phone. I can't wait to have her back at work to share time with her. A lot of other people miss her as well.

Of course the weather is changing and it seems that Winter is on its way. The seasons have been changing so quickly. How is the weather in your neck of the woods ? I hope things are well in your part of the world ?

You will be happy to know that my family and I will soon be getting a new dog. We are trying to look at getting a Jack Russell Terrier which is a dog we have been wanting. I have been wanting to get a new dog. I will always miss my other dog Hobo who went missing a while back. I think it will be nice to have another dog around the house again. I am so excited to think about getting a new addition to our family.

I do hope that you all have a great weekend ahead. It has been a really long week and I am looking forward to the weekend. All is well here in my neighborhood. That's all for now.

I'll talk to you again soon.

Monday Update....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. Today started another week at work for me. Its been pretty much cold in my neck of the woods. I am so not ready for Winter. It seems that Winter came early and I am ready to go back to Summertime. I am more of a Summer person.

Anywho...I am still reading the book "Rough Weather" by Robert B. Parker. The book is pretty good. I really like Spenser who is a private detective. He has a partner who is a guy named Hawk who I also like. They are trying to figure out who kidnapped this woman's daughter. So far different people keep turning up having gotten murdered. I am enjoying the book a lot and Robert is a great writer.

My next book I am about to start reading is "Prayers For Sale" by Sandra Dallas. I heard that it is a wonderful story about the friendship between two women. I have NEVER read it so I am hoping that it is as good as I've heard. The cover looks nice and so far I have to say that I think that it looks interesting.

I have been reading a lot of books recently. I am a huge fan of reading books it is something of a hobby of mine. I have always liked to read. So my dear world have you read any good books lately ? Do share....

So how are things in your part of the world ? Are you busy going to work these days ? I hope all is well where you are. I do hope that you have a great week ahead. I shall return with more news.

Take care everyone

Saturday News.....

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!!!!!! How is everyone today ? I hope you all had a nice Saturday. It has been rather cold in my neck of the woods lately. I guess Winter has officially arrived. my niece's and I went to Blockbuster video. I got a movie called "The Merry Gentleman" by Michael Keaton. Here is the link if you want to check it out ---> . I will have to let you know how it was after I see it. My oldest niece got a scary movie called "Trick 'r Treat" and Razortooth. My youngest niece Megan got a Scooby Doo movie which she wanted.

I and my mom saw the movie "The Merry Gentleman" and we both liked it. I thought that Michael Keaton did a great job in the movie. He was also quite nice looking in the movie. I am hoping that this movie gets an academy award. I also think that Michael Keaton should get a ton of awards for the movie and his performance which was amazing. I highly recommend this movie as a must see.

The book I have been reading "Rough Weather" is pretty good. Robert B. Parker is a very good writer. I am enjoying it and I can't wait to see what happens next.

All of us at our house are connected with cellphones. My dad has one, I have one, my mom has one and my oldest niece has one so we are pretty much connected. It seems that everyone has a cellphone now a days and you can stay in touch with everyone. I use it a lot and I am enjoying my phone immensely. Cell phones are useful but they also can drive you a bit nuts. I am a bit addicted to texting which is a bit part of my cell phone use. If you would like my cell phone number please do feel free to send me an e-mail and I will be happy to give it to you.

So how was your day my dear world ? Is it cold in your neck of the woods ? I hope you are enjoying your weekend as I am. I just finished making some Halloween cupcakes with my youngest niece Megan which are quite good. They are the color of a pumpkin with Halloween sprinkles.

I hope you continue to have a spooktacular weekend

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone !!!!!!! I know I haven't been around in a few days. It has been raining and cold recently in Georgia. Well here I am.

Anywho...I woke up late this morning to go to work but I made it to work. Today was "HAPPY BOSS'S DAY" so I bought my boss a rather huge funny card with some lottery scratch off's which he enjoyed. I am glad he liked the card. My boss is a rather cool guy and I am glad that he saw that my coworker's and I thought of him on this day.

I also got a card for my mom since she had to go to the hospital for a surgery to see what was causing her to have bleeding in her urine recently. The doctor's didn't find anything bad thank goodness. She is home and recovering.

I did finish reading "The Sugar Queen" by Sarah Addison Allen which was a rather good book. I am about to start another book titled "Rough Weather" by the writer Robert B. Parker. From the cover it looks like a really good book. I can't wait to start reading it. In "The Sugar Queen" I liked Josey, Della Lee, Adam and Chloe in the book. You have to read it because it is well worth reading. I highly recommend it.

So how are you my dear world ? I hope that all is well in your neck of the woods. Is it cold in your part of the world as it is here ? That's all for now.

I want to wish you all an early "HAPPY HALLOWEEN". Have a spooktacular weekend !!!!!!!!!

Quite A Day Yesterday....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. I have to say that my day yesterday was filled. Yesterday my folks and I and my youngest niece Megan went to eat at Chick-Fil-A. The food is always good at Chick-Fil-A. We then headed out to Woodstock to see our trailer. When we got there we found out that the people had taken our trailer to a place called the Insurance Auto Auction so we could not see our trailer.

A few minutes later we went to a couple of camper places in Acworth, Georgia which was fun. I saw a camper trailer I liked. It rained a little bit but not heavily. After looking at a couple of camper's we went to my favorite place "Barnes and Noble". I ended up getting a book of poems my mom found for me at a bargain price, a couple of small green notebooks for my mom and I, a book titled "The Sugar Queen" by the writer Sarah Addison Allen. I also bought a camping magazine for my dad that he wanted. I have NEVER read any of Sarah's books so it will be nice to read a book by a writer that I have NEVER read before. I have to say that sometimes you have to step outside of your comfort zone and read a book by a writer that you have NEVER read before. Sometimes you have to read something new that you have never tried before.

Before we went home we stopped off at El Pollo Loco. I got (4) things of churro's which are sweet cinnamon stick's. The churro's were good. So how was your weekend my dear world ? I hope you had a really nice weekend. The weather today has NOT been bad it hasn't rained at all. How are things in your neck of the woods ?

That's all for now. I'll talk to you again later.

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How are all of you today ? This entry was definitely inspired by one simple thing....a card with a letter.

Today I received a card with a letter from a friend. It seems that yes I have done my fair share of e-mails, instant messaging and texting on my phone. The thing this I forgot how wonderful it is to simply sit down and write a letter. I have written to a few people just because. I find that I enjoy getting a card and a letter in the mail and some people call it......snail mail. No matter what you call it. I love finding a letter from someone out there in the world who wants to share a few thoughts with me.

This person mentioned a few books in the letter which I remembered that I had one of the books that she mentioned and I found it. I will definitely have to read the book she mentioned. She has such a way with words and with writing that I fail in comparison to her. She writes letters that I could NEVER write. She has such a poetic way of writing that it is wonderful to get a letter from her.

I don't really know if you my dear world enjoy letters and writing letters as I do. I find that when people are at the post office they are talking about sending off bills and inventory and supplies for this and that. No one mentions sending off a letter just because. I think it would be wonderful to hear that at the post office but it NEVER seems to happen.

Perhaps the art of letter writing is going away with the invention of such technology as the computer, the cell phone and the instant messaging that we have in the world but I think that is such a sad thing. I hope that I am wrong in thinking that the art of letter writing is becoming....extinct.

My dear world......if you would take a moment and get a card or a piece of paper and do me one little favor...sit down and write someone a letter.

Perhaps you might want to send me one. Take care and thanks for listening.

Sincerly Yours,

On A Lighter Note....

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. We had a bit of drizzle yesterday but not a lot. It was a very busy day at work for me. My family and I are doing well.

My dad is NO longer a Deputy Sheriff at the courthouse. He does do work on the 4th floor where I work however. He is still retired but he is working part time. Anywho....on his way home from work yesterday he stopped off at the package store. His ranger truck did NOT start up so he called my mom. I went with my mom in the our Navigator with the jumper cables which also did NOT work. We took him home first to get this tools once we got to the package store. We then went back to the package store and he got the old battery out of his truck. We had to take him to the Auto Zone where he bought a new battery for his truck. We got back to the package store and my mom and I waited around until he installed the new battery into his truck which worked thank goodness.

When we got home my mom cooked some smoked sausage on a english muffin with some rice a roni noodles which are always good. I am still in the middle of reading "The Brass Verdict" by Michael Connelly. The book is quite good.

Today was another busy day at work for me. It did rain quite a bit today in my neck of the woods. In "The Brass Verdict" Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller decide to work together to solve the murder of Jerry Vincent. The guy who attorney Mickey Haller is defending in court is out on bail which is $20 million dollars. The story is quite interesting and I really like the book.

Its NOT supposed to rain tomorrow however. I will have to work tomorrow again. My favorite show "BONES" will be coming on television with David Boreanaz who is one of my favorite people on the show.

How are things in your neck of the woods ? I hope that things are going well. How has your week been ? I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week ahead. That's all for now. I will talk to you again soon

Take care everyone

I AM QUITE UPSET !!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone

Good evening how is everyone today ? My folks and my older niece went out today to get groceries and a few other things. I stayed in with my niece Megan. It was a little cold in my neck of the woods. It is officially Autumn in Georgia and so I wanted to change my blog colors for the season. How do you like the color ?

Anywho....I am a little upset for a particular reason. Some might NOT know that I am a huge huge Jane Austen fan. I have to say that I am boiling mad at the fact that there are some books being written which I can't say I like. I do like books don't get me wrong but a few writers have gone too far.

My Jane Austen favorites are being turned into horror books which is way way way over the limits of my liking. I saw in "Barnes and Noble" that Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" is being turned into "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters". I also saw that my most favorite "Pride and Prejudice" is being turned into "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" which I think is wrong. I can't say that I like the fact that my Jane Austen classics are being turned into a horror flick instead of being kept as a great classic piece of literature. What is it about classics that they have to be turned into the latest theater horror flick ? I am absolutely NOT happy about this change.

I am sorry for going off on a rant but I have to say that there is something wrong about such change. Why can't writer's enjoy a great piece of writing without wanting to turn it into the latest Zombie flesh eating and scary sea monster piece's of art ? I think that these writer's should appreciate a great piece of writing instead of turning them into a horrific piece of so-called whatever it is book. I am disturbed by this latest turn of events. What is going on in the world that Jane Austen's writing has to be changed into something that is becoming so hard to recognize anymore by readers such as myself ?

Can't a great classic be kept as what it is anymore ??? What is going on with all of these writers ??? Can't a decent writer recognize that if something IS NOT broken why fix it if it does NOT need fixing ?

I Love Saturdays....

Hello everyone

Good evening to everyone !!!!!!! How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. I have so much to share with you that I don't know where to begin. Where to begin ? Where to begin ?

Well a whole new month is here. September went by fast. Anywho...I finished reading "Olive Kitteridge" by Elizabeth Strout. I think that the book was quite good. I find that I liked Olive Kitteridge and I think that she wasn't a bad person at all. I think that Elizabeth Strout is a terrific writer and I hope that she writes more books like Olive Kitteridge.

The book I am reading now is "The Brass Verdict" by the writer Michael Connelly. In the story is a man named Mickey Haller who is a defense attorney. In the book Mickey's former colleague Jerry Vincent is killed and Mickey inherits his biggest case yet which is defending a Hollywood producer accused of multiple murders. So far the book is pretty good.

Today my folks and I and my niece's went to a place called "PECO Camper's" which is located in Tucker, Georgia. We looked inside several camper's with one of the guy's who work's there. We did see some we liked but in the end we found a Coachmen camper that we fell in love with especially my dad. We might just end up getting a new camper pretty soon as the insurance company contacts my parents about our camper that ended up getting trashed in the flood in Woodstock.

After the camper place we drove to Kohl's. my niece Megan and I went to JoAnn's. I found some sticker's I like and I bought her some stickers she liked. When we left JoAnn's we went out to eat at "La Parrilla" Mexican restaurant. The food is always good there. I got a chicken quesadilla with a side of avocado. The quesadilla was quite good. There's always people at La Parrilla.

Earlier in the day after JoAnn's we went to "Dick's Sporting Goods Store". My dad spent half the time there looking at fishing poles. My niece's and I just looked around in the store.

We also went to my favorite store "BARNES & NOBLE". My mom found me a book by my most favorite writer Nora Roberts titled "High Noon" which she found for me upon entering the bookstore. I also got me the book "Prayers For Sale" by the writer Sandra Dallas. I also purchased a bookmark with my member's card which comes in handy for buying books there.

So how was your day my dear world ? I hope you had a really nice Saturday as I did. How are things in your neck of the woods ? I hope that you all had a nice start to your weekend. I do love Saturday's !!!!!!!!!

Take care everyone
