Welcome to September


I can't believe it's September 1st.  Happy birthday to my brother in law Lee.  He is a very interesting person who taught at the University of Florida for many years but is also a clown.  No, I'm serious, he is a real clown named Juggles.  He is even in the clown Hall of Fame and in retirement makes clown props for clowns all over the world.  Of course, he juggles.

Happy Birthday Lee



I actually love September.  August is always so busy.   The weather becomes quite pleasant and the trees begin to turn color.   I'm not a fan of hot weather.  I don't like bitter cold, but I do well with temperatures in the 60's.   In August everyone is trying to pack all their activities into one month.  Last weekend was one of those weekends. 








On Saturday the 24th of August we had our 45th wedding anniversary.  That didn't interfere with anything though because we ate left overs and stayed home.  I know, we are so romantic.








Then Sunday the 25th of August was our grandson's birthday.  He was twelve and will start seventh grade on Tuesday. We actually celebrated his birthday the week before when we took the boys to lunch and the comic book store.

Also on Sunday the 25th our granddaughter got confirmed.  She worked very hard to get through the program and it was a great celebration.  She will also start seventh grade on Tuesday. 



This very special cross was made out of nails and welded together.  It was amazing to see.


The cake was made by one of my daughters friends.
