Flu shotI am thankful for normal! Not that anyone who knows me thinks I am normal (but that is normal for me).

Normal for me is pretty quirky. The picture to the left is from my favorite movie of all time... it's not Gone With The Wind or The Sound Of Music... it's Cry Baby with Johnny Depp. J.D.'s political views turn me off but I love his quirky movies like Cry Baby and Edward Scissorhands, but I digress.

I am thankful for "normal" days. No big surprises, no disruption of my schedule. Of course one has to wonder what a "normal" day is for a Real Estate professional. I am thankful when a transaction goes on without a hitch... "normal".

I'm glad when things are normal at home. I don't want to hear "Honey , remember that car I had this morning?" or "Honey, our money is now in Nigeria". You are all probably pretty sick of hearing that normal for my kids is straight A's and over achievment.

I'm glad when things are normal in general. Hopefully now that the election is over things will be fairly normal in life in general.

I'm thankful for "Normal".

I am thankful for Debbie Reynolds challenge to tell what we are thankful for during the month of November. Read the challenge and post what you are thankful for today.

Hunter has a Girl Friend
This is NOT Good. Last week I posted about my friend Hunter who was/is protecting the neighborhood from mice that my model home lies within. Now it seems Hunter has found himself a girl friend. This is not good as I do not know if either (or both)… more
Why Didn't They Decapitate the Dog?
Lately our high temps for the day have been in the teens and low 20's so for a comfortable walk we head to the mall. When we came across this display at Old Navy I just had to wonder… Why didn't they decapitate the dog? Do you suppose they were… more

gen·er·os·i·ty the quality of being kind and generous
I am thankful for GENUINE Generosity. Genuine generosity comes from the heart not by obligation, mandate or by taxes. There have been many times in my adult life that genuine generosity has been shown to me but never had I seen it like I did… more
A Taste of Winter Weather in Minot ND
Today may very well be our 1st day of winter in Minot North Dakota. I hope the snow that is falling (blowing sideways) today isn't the first to "stick" until April 2019. They are not calling it a blizzard or even a winter storm but the… more
My New Winter Scarf
This is the first year in many where I've been "On Top Of" getting started on my winter scarf for the year. When I was younger it was always a goldish color scarf but now that I'm an old man it's pretty solid grey. Today it's one week… more
Too Late To Meet His Fate
Little Pumpkin UPDATE. I had promised to keep you posted on the pumpkin whos vine I accidentally snipped while trimming my garden back a month to 6 months ago. After cutting the vine I shortened the vine even more and stuck the severed end into a… more
Old Wisdom for the Season
The geese are really gathering to head South. Yesterday I looked up to see a "super" flock of several hundred. I'd rather see them coming (heading North) then leaving (headed South) as it's a sure sign of winter. Everyone knows that geese… more
Thanks to our Founding Fathers I can Worship God…
… and even tell you about Him and my Faith in His Son Jesus Christ. About an hour from now my son and I will be headed to a men's Bible study at the church of our choice and at the faith of our choice, to openly discuss the Word Of God. While this… more
