    1. Yes, I am looking forward to my first visit with just me and Dad. It is a huge relief to know that he is 'safe'. Thanks Jean.

      Oh yes, Sophie is allowed to visit anytime!! She just needs proof of up-to-date vaccinations. I will try to post about this first visit.

    1. I remember that movie too! With Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty in 1961! I just looked it up. A friend and I sneaked in the movie theatre because it was 'adult' only. I'd like to see it again.

  5. I'm not awake... forgive this - Aren't you glad you don't have to mow this? It was my first thought when I saw the pictures. :-)

    Good Morning, I think...

    Looks like Sophie has some paths.

    1. Snakes among the flowers, sounds like a great spell binding story, Jim!
      Starts out with an old woman who has a Kleenex box taped to her cane. Her hand gun in it's holster, safety off, ready at a moment's notice. She walks slowly to the mailbox watching and listening for any snaky movement. The whole time though she's admiring the beautiful blossoms that a friend encouraged her to have... and blowing her nose. She reaches over to pluck a few beauties on their stems and she hears it... the unmistakable rattle. Dropping her flowers, she reaches for her gun and shoots the varmint that was ready to strike. Holstering her gun, she picks more blossoms and continues to the mailbox. On her return, she picks more flowers and blows her nose. She stops to rest on the porch, slips a nitro under her tongue as she sits in the glider to admire her wonderful yard.

      LOL! I couldn't resist, Jim. ;-)

    1. Thanks so much Ivan! They (the vibes) arrived at a perfect time as I just got back from visiting Dad. It is difficult to see him there but I know he is safe there.
      Sophie could get to that beach with her eyes closed! It was the first one she visited 5 years ago.

  8. Sophie is such a lucky girl to have the dunes and the beach as her playground. You can see the dune grasses just flow with excitement when Sophie's presence graces them. Have a great Thanksgiving!:)

      Thanks Terry, it was quite a day for us all. He is doing well though and will need time to adjust to the new surroundings.
      Have a great weekend.

  12. Somehow Sophie running through the grasses (which she looks beautiful doing by the way) made me think of the chorus in the Johnny Horton song, 'The Battle of New Orleans' -- Am I showing my age by remembering that song??

    1. Yes you are but that's alright, Kim! I remember that song well! Next we are there, in the grasses that is, I will sing the chorus!! lol
