I picked up this young lad, his siblings and Mom, to take them home. His young cousin stepped up to the window to talk to me. He asked me what I do at home! It made my day. He was a young fella that I also had as a passenger many times with and without his parents. It made my day that he wanted to chat with the taxi driver. Maybe it helps that I give the children “smarties” when they ride with me!

When I called to schedule a visit at the assisted living facility where my 97-year-old Mother is, they said, “We were just talking about your mother!” At the table during a meal, one of the residents was crying, and my Mother got up out of her chair, went over to the lady and gave her a big hug. Wow, how sweet is that? I had a nice visit with her on the porch. She said, “I would give you a “howdy do” handshake but I think it is against the rules!” LOL

Autumn Hike

Postcard Burst

I thought maybe I could bring cheer to some friends, so I sent out a batch of postcards! I ran out of stamps that have sitting in my desk drawer for probably four years! So, I replenished my stash!

Was this an Einstein moment? A after shampoo, selfie!

Fun

Gentlemen, at my Friday morning breakfast routine at Boyd & Wurthmanns in Berlin, Ohio!

Background photo taken in Michigan, Center insert photo in San Antonio, and the small insert taken in Malta! Merry Christmas to all my Blog followers, and visitors!! Hope it is a festive joyous occasion for you all. If not I pray, you will be surrounded by friends and/or family who can show you comfort, and compassion, with whatever you are going through!

My friend , and favorite singer John M Schmid, bringing joy and hope during this season. The setting was at the “Legends of Music Barn,” near Millersburg, Ohio, my home town!

Thanks, Rusty Baker, Artist, who graciously hosted this event! He has also painted murals in at least 200 cities and towns, worldwide!!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating! And “Waldo” is Dave and Ruth Ann Miller- former neighbors and friends! Not sure where the comma goes, but they are not “former” friends! LOL

Ok, but you surely can’t find Dave and Ruth Ann in this next photo! 🙂

As we approached three young ladies, the one was photographing another, so I grabbed a shot of the photographer, and the sweet smile of the other lady!
