Thank You, Thank You…

Patty, my wife, wants to thank you all for posting birthday greetings here yesterday. It pumped her up to throw caution to the winds and acquire a birthday cake (she hardly ever does that). And she has a nice box of assorted chocolate truffles to go with it.

The exigencies of the election sort of tamped down our celebratory mood last night. There’s a lesson to be learned from that: live life and don’t let the Heathen spoil it. I hope we’ll get a chance to profit by it, come Christmas.

[Meanwhile we have a comment contest going and only one or two comments so far today. I hope that shabby election hasn’t demoralized our readership.]

  1. I’m glad to hear that Patty had a good birthday. I wish her well through the coming year- and everyone else as well. It is very hard for me to write much with one hand partly paralysed and the other with painful arthritic joints, but I’m still here, reading the posts

  2. I’m hoping to be able to catch up on posting by tomorrow. I’ve been busy all week with my car problems — so many things to take care of, and still more to go. But as of today I have a new car — and a depleted savings account, but at least I don’t have to worry about how to get around or how long I’ll have to pay for a rental car or beg favors from friends. As I say, I’m hoping to get some rest tomorrow, which will include having time to comment.

    I hope y’all enjoyed the cake. What kind was it?

    1. Something called “lemon cream,” very sweet!
      I’ll pray for your new car to be a blessing for you.
      Someone I met on the street today took the time to pray for me, and I’m all the better for it.

    2. I got a blue Ford EcoSport. It looks like a baby SUV, but it’s shorter and narrower. It handles very smoothly, and the seats are comfortable. I drove it home from the dealership through lunchtime traffic and felt pretty confident with it. Some of the bells and whistles will take a bit of getting used to, though. All in all, I’m pretty happy with the vehicle — except for the price, which was outrageous, i.e., the new norm.
