Oh, dear friends!! I am so much enjoying this blog!! Your comments are priceless and I am so glad you are sharing my sense of humor! Things just strike both Bill and I funny and sometimes not everyone can catch the humor! So it is so much fun to hear from you all. I have published all of your comments but they are not showing as yet and you know I am not a patient person! If I could wish something for every one of you, it would be a good marriage and partner in life. Even with Bill's cancer hovering over us 24/7, he has never lost his sense of humor and we laugh about something every day. Bill was 6 foot tall before the cancer. The bone collapse in his spine has him now measuring 5'7"--on a good day. One morning he came out as I was making coffee, kissed me and noticed how I do not have to tip toe to return the kiss. He said, "Someday, I will wake up and be this tall" and he raised his hand from the floor about 2 1/2 feet, "and I will be saying 'me-me--me,me,me!" I marvel at his finding humor in all situations.

Among the fallen leaves
Summer's remnants succumb too soon.
as shortened days and Harvest Moon
Light the Autumn nights.
A crispness starts to fill the air
As summer's warmth gives way
To branches bare
And snow is waiting in the wings
To take the center stage.
Bill put a little pile of maple leaves
Into the outdoor chimanea pot
And lighted them so I could enjoy
The aroma on the spot.
Ah, sweet Autumn
Just when all seems serene
A restlessness is spilled......
In the color of your leaves.
