Fall has really hit with a vengeance.  I've had to put the heat on the last few days.  It's been going into the 40's at night, brrrr.  Some leaves are starting to change and are falling already.  I've had to sit with sweatpants and flannel shirt on the patio.  I do love the cool weather though.

I went out with the dinner friends on Wednesday and we were hoping to sit on the patio where we went but alas it wasn't in the cards, too chilly.  Oh well.  I still love fall the best.  It will get warmer again for a bit (I hope lol).

Happy Fall Everyone.

We've got small sunflowers growing under the bird feeder, ha!  I guess some of the seeds from the feeder got pushed into the ground and grew.  Hippie cut some yesterday and put them in a vase on the patio. 

Next to it, I think I've shown a picture of the little guy before.  My sister-in-law had it in her yard and gave it to us when she moved into her condo.  We just have him standing in the patio instead of in the elements. He could use a paint job but hippie doesn't think so.  Oh well..

What can I say; I finally did succumb to peer pressure and joined Facebook, ha!

Welcome to 2015, me.  I've only been on a little over a month.

I can't say I love it but I also don't exactly dislike it. 

The issue I have with it mostly is, I knew pretty much what the people’s views of who I would be friending with would be on certain things but knowing it and seeing it in black and white can be a bit disconcerting.

In fact, someone put something on that I disliked so much that I almost stopped following them because of it.  Then I decided to put my big girl panties on and live with it.  I mean if that's how they feel, that's how they feel.  We will not change each others minds of that I’m sure.

I don’t know, now that we are getting into the political season I can only imagine how things will go.  I might just have to not go on too much ;-0

A blast

Magellan, her boyfriend, hippie and I went out Saturday for dinner.  We ate a place that was like a 50's diner. 

It was like crazy, man. I was on Cloud 9 when I had a chocolate milkshake.

I almost wished I had rolled up my jeans, had bobby socks on and penny loafers, ha.  It was a pretty hip place, unreal!

Afterwards we went to a bar in the neighborhood and had a couple of drinks.  I was like nodding off so we split and were home by 9 or 9:30. 

See you later alligator....

38 years

So, it's almost the end of our anniversary day.  38 years.  As people say, where has the time gone?  I met hippie in 1973, when I was 23.  I met him at a bar when I was celebrating my birthday.   Wow, that was such a long time ago.   I love him just as much as when I first saw him ;-) although I didn't know it at the time, ha!

Has anyone installed Windows 10?  I got the free download but I'm afraid to install it, ha!  I'm scared it might screw all the stuff I have saved.
