A Russian passenger plane with 224 passengers crashed in Sinai.

In sports the Mets win game 3. Royals lead the Series by 1 game.

This will be quick post. Sarah came home with a stray kitten. Poor thing is
malnourished and cryin’ like crashing. She’s taking it to work with her for the vet to check.

R Debates probably changed forever We will see…it would be nice, if true

The end of America’s competitive military advantage Tough read

Rather Deceptive

    Aw, Fred Thompson has died. He had a varied career, which I appreciate in all its aspects

  2. Prairie says:

    Well, how about those Royals? One game away……

    • lysie says:

      Yes. Good morning Prairie, Molly and Rav.

      Greg surprised me with something last night in front of all our friends at the Legion. It’s a good surprise. Sarah took a video. If I can I may post it. He and our friends planned this for over one month.

      For quite some time when the band plays Elvis’s “Viva Las Vegas” I tell everyone that if I win the lottery I will take them to Vegas to see Brooks and Dunn. Last night Greg got up on stage ..took the mike and said, ‘ we will be married for 35 years soon. That’s a long time to be married to one woman. So I went to a lawyer and here’s the papers. ‘

      Huh?? I opened the envelope and there were tickets to see Brooks and Dunn and reservations at the Caesar’s Palace. Wow! He even called Tony (who does a great job singing Viva Las Vegas) to come sing it at the Legion. Unfortunately , Tony had other plans. That would have been a show stopper.

      Shocked that he could pull this off without me getting even a hint. Hmmmm! What else don’t I know? LOL

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Lookin’ good for them, true. Happy for them, too. It’s been a good round of post season baseball

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That’s amazing….Yay for Greg and YOU!! I want to hear more about how he kept this a secret. LOL!

    • Prairie says:

      What a guy! Sounds like you’ll both be having a wonderful trip.

    • lysie says:

      And all my so called friends kept it a secret, too. Haha!

      I jokingly asked our friend , Mark, “If Greg was cheating on me would you keep that a secret, too?” He said, ” Oh yeah. He told me about that, too.” Joker.

      Hahaha!

      It was a fun night.

    • The Raven says:

      Thats’ a wonderful story …. except the cheating part – that stunk. Can I go along?

    • lysie says:

      Rav, that was a joke. Mark was kidding. I’m the one who brought it up knowing Greg would never. There has never been a divorce or cheating person in his father’s side of the family. It’s not their way.

      What fun we would have in Vegas , Rav.

      I should have thought something was up when Greg said, ” You need to buy fancy clothes.” 🙂

  3. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

  4. The Raven says:

    Lot of articles on the old Rather/Mapes fiasco. I cannot comprehend why the movie Truth. Unless the real crime was that Rather and Mapes were knowingly in on it A reaction to Swift Boat?….so now when the evidence emerges someday — the movie makes them look genuine.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      it is strange…in the makers’ pathetic minds it must….it must be huge, and the complete opposite understanding of what we have….a wrong, a terrible wrong to be corrected.?

    • tillacum says:

      From fellows in VN, when Rather was there, I’ve heard some really weird stories about him, his “over the top arrogance” and fibs he told other reporters.

  5. edinva says:

    Love Sarah’s and your caring for an adopted kitten. So sweet. Here’s wishing him or her a very speedy recovery and happy nourishment.

    As an update to the chemistry fire at our local school: the 2 students who were flown to the burn unit in DC with life threatening injuries, those injuries are no longer considered life threatening. Beyond that, I don’t know, probably some serious scarring, both physically and mentally. But at least they will survive, and with modern medicine, will hopefully have a full recovery over time.

    • lysie says:

      Aww! Thanks, ed. We MAY have someone who will adopt the sweet orange kitten.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Hope the poor students, the school continues to mend. You’re right ed May take awhile. years ago in this area, we had a fire…sounds very similar… a school lab….a few students burned…the teacher , all right, but very, very scarred in a different way from it all.

    We did have heavy rains, after the soft rains the other day, plus high winds. What started off as rain just a bit heavier than sprinkles turned into gully washers, high winds then just heavy blowing rains, then “normal” rain, then back to heavy winds and blowing rain. Right now the sun is shining, it’s a bit cool, the lake on the golf course is full, with water running into it from a gully. It is nice and green and clean looking. We had 3 months of NO rain, the cracks in the golf course were wide and deep. I almost lost a ball in one crack, if it was 1 centimeter wider, my ball would have been a goner. I’ll wait until tomorrow to check the community garden. My squash plant will have huge fruit. Hopefully some people will want to share. I just learned about trellising cucumbers. There is a trick to make the plant want to grow upwards. It’s in Johnny’s Seeds ‘puter page. He has so many hints.
    Happy All Saints Day to everyone.

    • lysie says:

      Happy All Saints Day to you, Prairie and everyone.

      I’ll have to check that out about trellising cukes. I try to attach the thin, curly stems (tendrils) to the trellis….try to train it to attach.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      till Glad you managed ok with all that bad weather. Looked awful!

    • Prairie says:

      Yikes till, take care. There was a really bad storm here about two weeks ago and blew over one of the shuffleboard awnings (quite a long awning) and did damage to roof shingles in some homes, skirting off mobile homes etc. Luckily we were still not back at that point.

  7. Prairie says:

    Good morning friends! We have finally arrived back at our Southern Command and the associated time and effort into unpacking, window washing and cleaning up has been generally accomplished. It’s been several weeks since I’ve been able to post here, but all of you have never been very far from my thoughts.

    What an amazing summer we had! Much wheeling and dealing on real estate, RV’s and even pickup trucks. Sometimes we are sort of forced into the latter, considering trade in values deteriorate as time moves on. The biggest news is that we bought a cabin up at the mountain property. A smaller camper will still allow for festivals and trips back and forth. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good.

    Politics. Well what can we say except that nothing should surprise us anymore. It will be good to be able to read and visit here with friends of like-mind. Hope everyone has a safe Halloween (my least favorite) and I will wish everybody a Good All-Saints Day instead. Have I missed any big news from the group? Hope all are well….

    • tillacum says:

      We live OFF the main street. In fact our fence line puts us “in the country”. The road to us is dark, filled with tall droopy trees on one side and pasture on the other side, so trick or treaters do not come down the scary, twisty driveway.

    • lysie says:

      Oh so good to hear from you Prairie. I have a big smile on my face reading that you have a cabin. Wonderful!! 🙂

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Love your report, and your being here! Busy summer season it sounds like…we have been bumping along here…trying to stay upbeat and out of the way of too much vitriol and nastiness. There’s enough of it “out there”. I don’t care much for Halloween either, at least, what it’s become the last decade or so…toooooo much! IMO….

    • Prairie says:

      Hi till, lysie and Molly, it’s good to be back home and on the thread.

  8. lysie says:

    Yes, Halloween. I forgot. Ha!

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      And Happy Halloween! [Insert Ghoulish Laugh here}.

      Well, the winds died down here yesterday, so maybe by now they have for you, too. Aw, give us an update later on the kitten, ok?
