Last week, a friend, Paul Williams, called and asked me to grab my camera and come quickly to his house. He lives in our neighborhood just a stones throw away. So I did as he requested, and the following are some of over 100 pictures I was able to get of 4 eagles, 2 bald, and 2 golden, as they stood their ground and fought over dinner table time.--thanks for the call Paul

Here I am Sunday evening, getting ready for the Hymns of Thanksgiving with Dave Dillon. He and his wife Nina are moving to Seattle, and this will be his last year in the choir. He and I have sat on the back row of the choir (cause we're tall) for 3 years running. We will miss you Dave!

On November 22, I will be participating in the Hymns of Thanksgiving Choir. Here I am, Sunday evening by the orchestra's kettle drums with drummer Mona and her friend. Although we look like we're a little crazy, we have some beautiful pieces, and Gov. Butch Otter and his wife are the narrators.
Kids, don't try this at home, this is a trained professional on a closed course. Saturday afternoon, and chores at home include getting rid of pine needles. So we added some starter helper and a ten foot fuse of gasoline and 'boom' goes the dynomite! Smores anyone? You can see mom in the background gathering more fuel for the fire. Jeff took over as photographer and loved the whole fire thing.
Our Saturday morning started with a service project at the church, raking leaves, followed by our family assignment to clean the indoors of the chapel. So, we raked and raked and raked, till there were no more leaves. Jeff Hessing came and helped rake, then he and I sang a duet with the choir on Sunday morning.

In preparation for the upcoming winter snow storms and Christmas visits from all the grandchildren, I have built my own tubing run, a la the Winter Olympics. So here is the run prior to any snow. Every one is invited to come tubing this winter, and hopefully this will increase the speed and accuracy of each tube run! So, let it snow baby, let it snow!!!
