Well, lately this country is going through some really dark times. The Las Vegas situation is mind-blowing. It's hard to comprehend what makes a person do such awful, evil things. Whenever I watch coverage on TV, I see places where sis-in-law Nina and I walked just a few weeks ago. I am familiar with the area - in fact, we just attended a cirgue du solei performance at the Mandalay Bay Hotel where the shooter was. It makes a person think that that could have been us. Just a matter of time, logistics, and luck I guess.
Then, fortunately, there are also bright times. I saw in our newspaper that a local man won the Lottery Luck for Life second-level prize. The payout was $25,000 a year for life or cash lump sum of $390,000. The man took the lump sum which came to $273,000 after taxes. I think that was a very good choice. You see, this lucky fellow is 92 years old. I know he isn't upset about winning a boat load of money at this stage of his life 'cause it is still quite a thrill, but I am sure he is thinking, "REALLY? I sure could have used it in my earlier years, but now I'm gonna have to hurry up and enjoy it while I can." Anyhoo, congrats to that fellow . . . and have fun!
Materials for Woodbridge Haven got delivered the other day. Things are starting to get good now. I was thrilled to see that the delivery guy left some nice wood pallets that some of the stuff arrived on. Have you seen the articles on Pinterest about making neat things with pallet wood? I have a small stockpile of pallets to try and make some projects and signs. I found a really neat sign at the Goodwill and we will be hanging it in our building when it is done.
And as for Jenna's and my little pumpkin raising contest, pffttthh!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
