Let There Be Peace On Earth

Vince and Jenny Gill (his daughter) - Let There Be Peace On Earth

... and let it begin with me.

Black Friday

Spend Thanksgiving with my oldest daughter, her husband, brother-in-law, sister-in-law and their family. They were staying in the family timeshare in Seaside, about an hour north of me. We had a wonderful, wonderful time and I was reminded of all that I am thankful for.

Steely Dan - Black Friday.

I'm not doing any shopping this Black Friday. Still minding my nickles and dimes and will do most of my shopping online and have the store ship the gift to my loved ones.

Pictures of the bride, the groom, and the perpetual skip bo game.

I am thankful for so many things - the peaceful retreat on the bay is just one of them.

Clouds Over The Cape

Raining off and on today - got about 1/2" total with more of the same in the forecast.

Some sunshine possible this weekend.

Fingers and toes crossed for good turkey day weather. I'm heading up to Seaside to spend the day with the bride and groom and the groom's family.

Friday Sunset

Stayed high and dry during the storm. Tillamook got almost 6 inches and flooded in the usual places. I drove into town today to learn what some of those places are. Had to learn a new way back over to the bay since there was a crash on 131 that closed the road. Sounded like it was a bad one. Got home, put away my groceries and then Token and I enjoyed this sunset from the bay side deck.

Joe Must Go

Call Your Senators NOW

Jane did this gizmo today and made it available to all blogs to use.

Read her earlier post, The Case Against Lieberman, as to why Joe Must Go.

Click on the 'click to take action' in the gizmo and sign the petition. Then call your Senator and explain, using small words so they really do understand, why they must say No To Joe.

This man does not deserve to hold a gavel to any committee chair at all.

Twas A Dark Stormy Nite

The Sun is Shining Down by JJ Grey and Mofro.

The perfect song for a dark, stormy (well semi stormy) nite. This song always seems to soothe, even when stormy winds are blowing.
