He's back

I'm not sure if it's the same one but I'm thinking probably since he made himself at home.  It looks like he bulked up, ha!!  (Excuse the blurriness)

Eventually, he laid behind the grill and relaxed for a while.

Random thoughts

1.  My new obsession is audio books.  Can I get any lazier?   Ha!

2.  It's been getting chillier and chillier here.  I haven't been sitting on the patio too much, boo hoo...

3.  The neighbor man is turning 100 this month.

4.  I went to a launch party for someone I know that is a Christian singer/song writer.   I never did anything like that before.  It was pretty cool!  This was her first professional CD.  I'm excited for her and her family.

5. I've always had mixed feelings regarding all the pink in October.  I read a really good blog post from  a woman with breast cancer who will be on it forever, unless the decision to stop is made.......    Awareness is all well and good but we also need to be aware of people who are going to be living with cancer the rest of their lives. So, if you are inclined to buy into the whole pink October thing be careful who you give your money to.  Research is really needed for women/men not only to prolong their life but to save their lives.

Fishing can be dangerous

Hippie was fishing last week with his buddies.  They were coming in and were going to dock the boat.  He saw a guy pull his trailer in the water to get his boat and he noticed the guy's old Cadillac was starting to go into the water as well.  The next thing he saw the whole car was in the lake.  A good Samaritan jumped in and got the man out of the car.  It had already sunk up to the bottom of the windshield.  It was an older man.

Hippie said in minutes, the whole car had sunk under the dock.  Two park rangers came, a coast guard boat, an ambulance and a fire engine as well.  They didn't stick around to watch but the older guy seemed to be okay.

Holy Toledo!!

Get a Grip

With the government shutdown (or as Fox likes to call it slim down), I can't believe people are protesting and pulling down barricades to get into memorial places.

What did people think was going to happen?

Everyone wants the government out of their life until it affects something they need or want.
