On a Monday Breakfast

Start-of-the-week greetings to all!

How was your weekend? Ours was filled enough that I watched little football … but that’s OK. We had two evenings of ballroom. We’ve always said that he do ballroom for fun, but performing and/or competing is not our thing – but this Saturday we did participate in a tango formation as we were one of eight couples participating in a choreographed routine to a small crowd of friends. The group did well and we enjoyed ourselves – but I wouldn’t bet on us doing solo competition or performance.

Otherwise, we had a productive weekend around the homestead as we attacked our storage area because much of the boxes there haven’t been opened since the move. This meant four piles: donations, recycle, trash, and keep … thus mission accomplished.

The Saturday post about Carl Sagan was a spontaneous idea that came to me Friday afternoon. Even though it gave me another opportunity to future The Pale Blue Dot, I appreciate the reaction readers had to the post.

This week brings Act 13 of Life: The Musical. This one will be a challenge because of the plethora of songs available – Love is the word needing to appear in all song titles – but not other forms as loving, loved, lover, etc … just love. Curtain time is Wednesday, 9:3o pm (Eastern US).

On Flanders Monday

Another weekend is in the files, so how was yours? Surprise, surprise … we stayed busy!

My wife continues to follow doctor’s orders, so no ballroom for us. Our weekend considered of hosting a friend for dinner and wine, a college football game, playing euchre with a few neighbors, and being caretakers as both of my in-laws had recent setbacks.

Last week I mentioned our Japanese Maple was approaching being full red. One week later, it’s about 50% bare.

By the way, is anyone else suddenly not receiving emails about new posts from those you follow?

Whether its Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, or by any other name or even another day, for many it’s a day to honor the living who served. For others, it’s a day of remembrance for those who sacrificed. Either way, I’m foregoing my traditional Monday Morning Entertainment for a tribute to the original day while providing two appropriate videos around In Flanders Field – the top as a poem, the bottom as a hymn. Take your pick

Have a good week.
