Today’s Thoughts (11/30/10)

Here are some thoughts rattling around on the last day of November, 2010:

–        It is only three short weeks until Christmas week. EEK!!

–        Speaking of that, I am hoping to take Friday, the 10th, off from work so I can bake Christmas cookies.  My annual cookie-baking extravaganza! Not sure how many I will […]

Elevator Dares

Here is the second list my niece sent me (I especially like number 13):

24 Things to Do in An Elevator

1. When there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn’t you.

2. Push the buttons […]

I Dare You

My niece just sent these to me.  Actually she sent me two lists.  I know it is a forwarded e-mail but I have never seen this one before (surprisingly) and so I am sharing it with everyone. I will post the other list tomorrow.

It is Thanksgiving Day. My brother and I put the turkey in the oven right at noon, as we had planned. It should be done by 4:00 and we will eat around 5:00 or so.  We told everyone to be here by 4:00 for appetizers so that will work out well.  Who is invited? My […]

My beloved nephew is now 17 years old.  The little boy I used to carry around when he was a baby is now a good deal taller than I am and growing taller everyday.  Along with growing taller, his voice has changed and is much deeper.

I called my sister last night and Josh answered […]

Today’s Thoughts (11/20/10)

Here are some thoughts for the end of a Saturday:

Went to see Morning Glory today which is a movie starring Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford (among other people). It was really good! Very funny in spots. Harrison Ford played a curmudgeon who was described, in the movie, as “the […]

Everyday Miracles

Do you believe in miracles?  I’m not talking about the spectacular miracles that Jesus performed during His earthly life (human life).  The walking on the water, making water into wine, calming the storm kind of miracles.  Those were high-end miracles.  The kind that Jesus could perform because when He lived His 33 years in human […]

A Rambling E-mail

My brother, Ted, was responding to a someone in an e-mail regarding a person the recipient should know but seems confused.

This was Ted’s reply: Gary, the guy in your room at work. Maybe you can’t see him, he’s right behind you! Boo! Sometimes he is invisible, for instance, I didn’t see him when I […]


Upon arriving home tonight, I was confronted with a soap opera level drama in the parking lot of the apartment building.

For a little background, I don’t believe I have mentioned it but I have all new neighbors.  I did mention that of the tenants in the other apartments in my building moved out between […]

Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day.  Why is today Veteran’s Day? I mean, why November 11th?

Well, since you asked, major hostilities of World War I ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when Germany signed the Armistice.  For years this holiday was known as Armistice Day.  But in […]
