The tree is up! Yay!
What's that you say - no tree skirt? Hmmm. I'm thinking I got rid of my tree skirt last year. Must go find another. This is my first tree at home with white lights. I've been wanting white lights for years but my kids always wanted multi-colored lights. Fortunately I needed a new tree this year and chose what I like. What a novel idea!! Now on to the rest of the house!!

Such a fun day! We dressed up at work, had a fun lunch together and I'll be welcoming trick or treaters tonight if the rain lets up, which is the forecast. Today is my brother's 60th birthday. Can't believe I have a brother that's 60 - wasn't it just a couple years ago that he teased me incessantly? Hope everyone enjoys the magic of the day!

Each year on September 11th, the Fire Chief's Association of Palm Beach County, Florida presents a tribute to those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and to honor those that risked their lives on that fateful day. The ceremony this year was in my town and I was so touched by the day's events. Every Fire Department and Police Department throughout Palm Beach County was represented. Each unit had fire trucks parked along the main road in. A parade was held ending at our Ampitheatre where a beautiful ceremony was held. Here are some photo's to capture the day.

I recently participated in a tag book swap, hosted by Karla Nathan. I love to create art with birds and music so I jumped at the opportunity to make tags for the Bird Song Tag Book swap. Blue was my color of choice. Here's what I came up with.
Karla always has the best swappers. I love my book and each tag in it.
I can't imagine hosting such a swap. Karla made the covers for each book, packaged them up nicely to send to us and impressed the heck out of me when I heard she had 150 swappers! It's so nice when someone takes on such a project that brings such happiness to so many.

I think I am falling in love, though my heart breaks. Tonight I met Sullivan, a ten year old Weimaranan who was surrendered by his family because they are having their first baby and feel Sullivan is too energetic for their new lifestyle. Hmmmmm.
My friend, Hope, asked me to help with the fundraiser she's chairing for The Big Dog Ranch Rescue. We are coordinating a Howlin Hoedown to raise money for this amazing organization. Our committee meeting was held tonight at the Rescue so we could all get an opportunity to see exactly what our efforts will benefit. They currently have about 120 big dogs waiting for placement.
My heart went out to Sullivan. I cannot understand how someone can give up a ten year old dog. Do you know the average life expectancy of a Weimaranan is ten to twelve years? He just got to the Rescue today after a five hour drive from Jacksonville, Florida. I snapped this photo quick, Sullivan looking out the front door, waiting perhaps for his family to come? He probably doesn't know what's going on.
I never used to like dogs. What the heck? I already have two! How will I ever sleep tonight?!
"....and now that I am old and gray, Oh God, forsake me not" . . . .

For our final night in New Orleans, we took a two hour cruise on a steamboat on the Mississippi River. New friends from our art classes joined us and it was such fun. The sunset was beautiful and the New Orleans skyline at night was so pretty. It was a guided tour for the first 45 minutes, which is always interesting, and we enjoyed a very good jazz band for the rest of the cruise.
This was the perfect end to a great trip!
