Rinse, Repeat...

Started the next "cycle"...it would be 17 of 19 again, but I have Halloween off, and we get election day as a negotiated holiday. Worked an hour over last night sweeping...I know better, but too greedy for my own good (truck payments, car payments, Christmas is coming, a half dozen birthdays...)!

Mitch's birthday on Saturday was fun.

My sister's younger son Jordan, with my grandaugher Talia and my youngest grandson...



Caleb a few minutes later, lol...



This is Dillon, looking quite grown up for 7...



and of course, my brother-in-law Mitch being served his cake and ice cream by Miss Talia...



Next time I go back to the Nikon and the overhead bracket to get rid of redeye, these were all shot with the little Fuji and unretouched.

Sunday we made the 10:30AM show of "Flags of Our Fathers". Someday this will be ranked above "Saving Private Ryan" in the list of great WW2 movies. Knowing Eastwood shot a 2nd movie from the other "side" of things that won't come out until spring, I'm curious to see it as well.

If I am smart enough to leave when the line stops tonight, I'll be making the rounds this evening...hope I'm forgiven for not getting everywhere everyday at this point!

yeah, heidi, i need a digigal camera too, but now i have decided to go to this "Healing" workshop in November instead - technology will have to wait...maybe IF we are good Santa will bring us each one?

Tried to put up a new post but Blogger is having none of it...

I worked 10's the first 2 days this week, and 9's the other 3 so far...

Heidi, shop around, read Epinions.com and you'll be surprised what you can find!

Paul, thank you for the kind words, and I hope that movie makes it there as well!

Connie, right back at you!

To the best writer I know...I'm trying, thank you for taking care of my soul!

Deb, I wish you were too...meeting you would be a treat!

Kranki, once again your Friday post was my lunchtime treat at work, and my first smile of the evening, thank you!

To my favorite quarterback...can I play center?
