On the Monday After

Another weekend is in the books, so how was yours?

Because my wife “no ballroom” for two weeks instructions from the doctor, we stayed home on our normal dance night to open a bottle of good wine and watch a movie. Saturday was full with a funeral visitation, a contractor at the house, handbell rehearsal, and the church’s 50th anniversary celebration event, Saturday flew by.

The handbell piece premier was only acceptable – mainly because we played in a big room that is acoustically dead – a real sound killer! However, we had three good rings Sunday morning!

In this past post featuring a fall-colors walk in my neighborhood,  many JMapleTwocommented about our fiery Japanese Maple. It’s transition is in progress, so this image is from Saturday when we could see the transition with hints of green, deep maroons, and brilliant reds. (But this pic didn’t capture it as I hoped.) Interestingly, we could see more change on Sunday.

Many thanks for the testimonials. I hope to publish the new subpage sometime this week. Many thanks … and for others, I’m still taking them here.

My favorite pro hockey team is the St. Louis Blues. Many of you also realize there is also a song of that name. Plus, it is also fitting as the city’s baseball Cardinals caused fans to sing the blues for losing the World Series. For your Monday Morning Entertainment, enjoy the St. Louis Blues – but done in a quirky way. Have a good week.
