Finally Friday and Good News

Last night mama said the memorial was very very nice. She helped set up and also clean up at the end.  People told funny stories about the lady, and remembered her with lots of smiles and a few tears. They showed pictures of her throughout her life, and played her favorite song, and showed off her drawings.  The memorial card was filled with her own drawings, which mama has on the fridgeator.  There was a very beautiful prayer, and poems and it was lovely.
Earlier in the day we gotted our Holiday Basket.  So now, sitting in our freezer is a turkey, some chick-hen  breasts, and we have all sorts of stuff for our holiday dinner.  Yummy.
It is bright and sunny today, after being gray for several days and really windy yesterday.  Of course, that means it's colder, again.  *sigh*
Oh, wait.  It's nice and warm in here! I am very thankful!
Speaking of thankful, yesterday I forgotted to mention some things I am thankful for.  I forgotted to mention my Denties and my Tempies.  What was I thinking????? And now there's those birdies in the freezer to be thankful for.
I thought this was appropriate.
So we are in the final countdown for Santy.  And did you know the nice thing beans have been doing for others in several states?  They are paying down on other beans layaways at KMart so that children will get their presents and clothing, and parents don't have to struggle so hard.
What a wonderful thing to do.
Chrissymouse.  Good things happen!
We are sorry about sweet Admiral passing, but think of all the lovely friends to play with over the Bridge!
And we are horrified for the Pittie Pack's family.  They lost their home and five Pitties to a fire. See here for the terrible story and leave a message at the Pittie Pack's blog. They need lots and lots of hugs and help.

Good news is always welcome!!! We read about the K-Mart people and think that's super!

We were really sad to hear that Admiral went to the Bridge.

How wonderful that you have turkey and chick-hen in the freezer, Miss Brandi! And it's also wonderful that generous people are helping children and families. Wouldn't it be even more wonderful if people could help all year, every year until everyone is taken care of? That is my wish.

We love the "hello beautiful" picture!!! A good laugh for the day.
Saw in the Strib about the Kmart helpers and it's so heartwarming. We wish everyone who needed it could be taken care of like that. Critters too.
