Hello my friends! Bill and I went camping this weekend in the Poconos. It was chilly, but beautiful. A great time away. And now Bill is away for three days - he is usually gone at least one overnight a week now. None of us like it, but it's what has to be done.

Hated to wake up to the horrible news out of Las Vegas. This is just one bad event after another.

Last night I heard about Edmonton - lone crazy hurt four and one critical. Injured police officer and then he got out of the car and stabbed him three times. They discovered an iscis flag in the front seat of the car.

The world is going crazy. Such problems for all the hurricane victims and now these crazies on top of that misery. Hard to love someone who is intent on killing you.

Oh Gail - I hadn't heard about Edmonton! Of course our news is preoccupied with Las Vegas. Too much tragedy!

Today is also the anniversary of a friend's son's suicide. Too much sadness.

All that is going on is beyond words.... truly time to turn to God and pray for our country, the military, police and first responders. This ol' grandma is so brokenhearted for our children, grandchildren and babies yet to be born.

Bad day at black rock... was up most of the night with the gastric stuff acting up. My stomach is so swollen, I look like I am seven months pregnant... that and the nausea can take a lot out of this ol' girl. Not much can be done except go back to liquids. Such is life and as I say, things can be a lot worse.

Cat so sorry. It is a difficult thing to live with. Yes there are always others worse off but still difficult to live with day to day. You are just a bit of a gal to start with. The sad part is we all have the start of problems, I'm hobbling with two canes and three years ago I was much better. It sucks getting older but then many never made it this far. My Mom is 92 and I can't imagine getting there myself. The thing I find funny is Mom gets so mad when body parts don't work as they use to. She still thinks she is 60.

Posting some new cards in my gallery this evening. Playing with the new SU toys!

Amen, Gail! I have an aunt in Shreveport Louisiana who is 95 and tells me how upset she is because of her limitations.

Totally agree with your statement that many people never get to my age. Working with Coles Foundation and children with horrible diseases teaches me how blessed I am. Our children and grandchildren are healthy and doing well so I am grateful.

Gail and Caterina - I can agree (and I know I'm younger). I need a knee replacement and I can't decide if I should wait until AFTER our trip to Iceland in February or do it sooner. It has been pretty good since I had a gel injection. I think I can wait. I have other issues but they are my own fault for keeping all the extra weight on. My mom just turned 82 and she complains that she can't do as much as she used to. It really bothers her! My dad, at 94, says he doesn't really care that he can't do anything any more!

Enjoying the nice weather. We had such a rainy spring and early summer - we could use some of the moisture again!

It's easy to get consumed in the Vegas sadness. I've been watching the news and it's just heartbreaking. I enjoy hearing all the stories of the heroes.

I heard a woman talk about keeping balance. Although we are all overcome with sadness about Vegas, Edmonton etc. There is nothing we can do or is there? Spreading love to someone in your community, doing acts of kindness - finding the balance in your life. The world would have us be sad all the time and although some activities seem frivolous they bring a lightness to our lives and maybe a smile. A way to honour those who were lost all too soon.

We are due to be in the 80s for the next five days. That should help them a lot!

Caterina - I went last week for a cut and color. It does lift one's spirits, doesn't it?

Marie's little dog Chloe went to have a lump removed today. When the vet saw it last week he wasn't too concerned. The vet who did the surgery today said it was sort of black in color so now I'm a bit worried. They are going to do a biopsy. I am PRAYING there is nothing to worry about. I don't think she could handle it right now. Well, none of us could really. We lost two pets last year - not a trend I want to continue.

Sorry for your pet problems. We went through a time of ups and downs with our pets. Now we are down to two and I hope good for many years. They are part of your family and it is very upsetting.

Joanne, have been thinking of your Marie lately and wondering how she is doing especially if she is seeing the therapist.

Hope all goes well with your precious Chloe.

Thinking of all of you!
I finished my Halloween cards today!
My youngest son, the one in the accident, came home last night. My middle son and he are out looking for cars. He needs to find one with good back support that he can adjust. he is hoping to go back to work after his he sees the trauma team at Mayo and his spine surgeon in MPLS on Oct 12th. He says he is only taking 1000mg of Tylenol a few times a day. He is tired a lot. I am so very grateful for all the positive thoughts and prayers.

After two weeks at Camp Bullis, where they have they guys fighting, staying up all hours with bombs going off and much more war-like things, I heard from Alexander! He said he learned more in those two weeks than all the time he has spent at Ft. Sam. He also said it was extremely stressful, however, he did good!

Alexander has not yet heard where he is going to be deployed. Once he gets to Ft. Hood, he should get his orders within a few weeks. This ol' grandma just keeps on praying.

Prayer gets me through life! Two answered prayers and both wonderful - a friend diagnosed with stomach cancer two weeks ago - it is contained and once removed should be fine. Another is a woman at church had a mass in her kidney. It is cancer, but also contained so once that kidney is removed she should be fine, too. Now I still have to wait for the dog's results (I know, only a dog, but Marie's dog so I don't know if she could handle it).

We had a wonderful weekend. Saturday we got together with friends. Their son (who LOVES to cook) made a delicious stew. We were able to sit outside (I thought it was going to be too hot/humid) and just chat for hours. On Sunday afternoon we went to a wedding for a young lady who deserves all the happiness imagined. The only difficult part is that she is a twin and they have really only had each other for most of their lives. They had a difficult childhood and their father was extremely difficult and demanding. He did not approve of the girls having any outside interests. He passed away about 3 years ago. The girls are 38 and such amazing women - even having lived with such a difficult man for so many years. Their mom passed away when they were 14.

Just talked with Cinda who lives in Santa Rosa and she is in the process of packing in case they have to evacuate the area due to the fires. A bit scary for sure....

Gail, hope you enjoy those leftovers.

This is the latest from Cinda -

Right now we are safe and still at home. Just getting up after a late night and trying to get the latest information. Air quality seems better right now. Last night was scary! I was working a shift at the hospital and could see fire in the hills not more than 2 miles away. The wind picked up and changed direction putting our neighborhood at risk. Mary began packing like we do when we go camping. Our intention was to take the camper with us if we needed to flee the fire. Then she doused the yard and surrounding areas with water and helped neighbors clear brush from the field. At that time, evacuation seemed imminent. Then something changed in the weather and the fire that was of the most threat to us seemed to changed direction again putting us less at risk but putting someone else at greater risk. The situation is very fluid and we will continue to be vigilant. If it seems like we are safe for now we might head over to the food bank to help sort and distribute food to the many shelters which are housing thousands of displaced people. Thanks for your prayers. I'll keep you updated.

Much love,
Cinda

"Jason's battle with cancer ended today. He is no longer in pain. Jason joined his grandparents and several of his rock-star idols in heaven. Jason has brought endless joy to many."

My heart breaks for Linda. Watching your child suffer and die is the most wretched experience to go through.
