Happy Thanksgiving

My ancestors came from England, so I need to act English, right? Previously I gave up drinking tea to avoid staining my teeth. That decision lasted about two weeks. Good think I'm not addicted to beer; habits can be hard to break. Recently I had a lightning flash in my brain which prompted a solution for my pride. The English people put cream/milk in their tea, so why shouldn't I? Next time, Earl Grey and I will have a little milk in our tea to lighted the stain. You are most welcome to join us as we sip together in the library.

I have so enjoyed talking with you these last three years. I hope I brought a smile or laugh to your day. No, I'm not saying goodbye. Just wanted to say I appreciate my friends and family. I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Some of us have started keeping a 'Blessings' book. It's fun to watch my list grow longer each week. If you want another blessing in your life, join Patty, Dianne, Nancy, Barbara, Margaret, Lois, Jane, Jewel and myself as we write down our blessings to keep us focused on what's important.

I saw a laughable sign in Springfield the other day. It said, “Don't look. There's nothing here to read.” A block away, another sign shouted, “Never pay the cannibals to eat you last.” That one had a deep political meaning (I think). Springfield has great free entertainment!

Money talks. Chocolate sings. Beautifully!

Love ya!

One Hundred Percent

Good morning to you, my friends!

Is 100% the same expression as a sure thing? A perfect number? A guarantee?

Checking the on-line weather prediction has become my early morning habit. The report tells me if I'll get wet working in the yard that day. Tomorrow shows an amazing figure, one I don't recall ever seeing. Rain is 100% tomorrow here in the valley. I wonder if it will rain all day or maybe it means rain is guaranteed at least for five minutes. One thing for sure: no yard work tomorrow. So guess what I'm doing today. Yard work and fall clean-up.

When we returned home from a nine-day trip recently, autumn had visited us at 100%. Enjoy the scene as we drove in the driveway.

What else comes to your mind when you hear 100%?
 Forget the stock market!

This week an airline pilot announced, “We are going down!” He sounded definite, 100% sure. People were calling their loved ones and telling them goodbye. I wonder how many prayed and repented of their sins?

I, for one, would have been extremely excited, then disappointed when the plane landed safely. Imagine the joy believing you would see Jesus in five minutes! I would have been sitting on the edge of my seat—ready, set, go!

God's amazing 100% guarantee:

For God so loved the world that He gave 
His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV

Happy Birthday: Tall Tom, Ken, Jewel, Iona, Georgia, Colleen and Brad!

Happy 50th Anniversary: Ted and Jeannette Carper

Love, Juanita
