Quiet in Maine and quiet in Florida

On the west coast that is! We were the lucky ones but are keeping our east coast friends in our prayers. It hit home with me yesterday while driving home from golf I saw all these lines at the gas stations. Then I saw 75 and 95 being used one way to escape the storm with wall to wall cars heading north . Nice to know they have evacuation plans in place and that they work.

Fall in Maine!

But, hurricane warnings down here. We think we're safe on this coast but folks from the west coast have come over. Hotels, Motels, Inns, as well as rentals are all taken. People were scared enough to walk out of their homes, and drive across the alley. David's brother and his wife who live in Boca arrived a couple of hours ago and told us everything in Naples was filled. And, they were charging outrageous prices for rooms to boot. Hopefully, we'll all escape this one but it doesn't look good to the north of us. We can only hope this blows out to sea soon.

Happy Birthday David!

Today is a big day for David! We will celebrate with a sister and her husband and his brother and his wife. Tomorrow we will have more family over for a brunch. Missing is a sister in Ma. and his three children and their spouses and his grandchildren . Unfortunately it is just too costly to get them all down here but we'll celebrate later when we go up in December. Getting older is not all that it's cracked up to be but we must be grateful for each and every day and enjoy to the max. I think we do that!
