Here is a closeup of the tassel.
This is how it looked outside my back door when I got up this morning.

Individually, the words all make sense. But when you try to string them together you end up just scratching your head in bemusement.
On Russia:"It's very important when you consider even national-security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America. Where—where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to—to our state."
What do you do on a cold, sunless Monday? I'm waiting for Don to come back from Tennessee where he went to help Ryan move in. Unfortunately, he ended up in the ER with a UTI and wasn't much help at all. But after a fever of 104 he finally felt a little better and is on his way home today. I've sure missed him. I'm still working on my photo reorganization. I didn't realize I had so many photos. They are all in albums now, but I have to put them on the top shelf in the closet. My sister, who is the queen of getting things organized, says that you need to put all the like things together. Not only does that make sense in finding something, it makes things neater too. So I am putting all my photo albums, scrapbooks, and souvenirs together. Little by little I am making headway on getting things organized. My goal is to know where things are and weed out what I really don't want anymore. Simplify, Eclarrizez, Let it go...my new motto.

I am so excited I can hardly type! I got an email from Victoria magazine that they are going to publish a story I wrote. I had submitted a romantic story about how Don trampled a heart out in the snow that said I love you. They are going to publish it in the Jan/Feb issue and they want a picture to go with the story. I can't believe it! I am on Cloud Nine! Me, in one of my very favorite magazines! This is so wonderful!

Today bright and early I visited my favorite dentist, Dr. Volpe, to get a molar capped (ouch!). Even though I'm dentalphobic from a lot of bad experiences in the past, cute young Dr. Volpe, with his wild shoulder length locks and his scraggly beard, always puts me at ease. (or as at ease as you can get when someone has a drill in your mouth).
