  1. Christmas Holiday 2018

    We are all done with our decorating.....both outside and inside. IMHO, I think it looks nice. We got back from Disneyworld a couple weeks ago and their decorations were spectacular. The Grand Floridian Resort Lodge was just breathtaking. I really thought that I was in a movie setting. They had a huge Christmas tree plus a real gingerbread house that was out of this world. On top of this on the second floor balcony there was a large orchestra playing Christmas music.

  8. What's Up In November 2018

    We are going to the orchard next week for apples. Four of our neighbors would like us to get them some. I will buy a half bushel of Fuji apples, a half bushel of Pink Lady, and a half bushel of a new apple called Sweet Cheeks. This will be our third trip for apples this year.
  9. What's Up In November 2018

    We are leaving tomorrow for Disneyworld (Florida) for the Thanksgiving Holiday. It is a 600+ mi. drive to Florida and I hope to make the drive in about 9 hours.

  13. If you enjoy medieval fiction

    War of the Wolf is book 11 of the series. I may try book 1 and see if I like it, if so, it will give me a lot of reading.
  14. Stephen King

    It took Stephen King 4 decades to complete the Dark Tower series. Glad I started them later so that I didn't have that much of a wait, but, they were worth whatever wait it took. the Dark Tower books Main article: The Dark Tower (series) In the late 1970s, King began what became a series of interconnected stories about a lone gunslinger, Roland, who pursues the "Man in Black" in an alternate-reality universe that is a cross between J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth and the American Wild West as depicted by Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone in their spaghetti Westerns. The first of these stories, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, was initially published in five installments by The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction under the editorship of Edward L. Ferman, from 1977 to 1981. The Gunslinger was continued as an eight-book epic series called The Dark Tower, whose books King wrote and published infrequently over four decades.

  16. Muggle Not - 2018 Books Read

    I believe I need to say a little more about this book and author. This is probably one of the best written books that I have read for quite awhile. Delia Owens has a way of describing things that few authors have. I also found that you need to pay attention to some of the writing early on in the book as it comes back and is important later on in the story. The story itself is very, very, good. I was sorry that the book ended. There are certain parts of the writing and storyline that remind me somewhat of "To Kill A Mockingbird". I wish that I was just starting to read the book instead of having finished it.
