    When my husband was working in England, he loved to visit the local pubs for the atmosphere (and the beer). He had bought a hat like John’s because he liked it. (and he still has it) He learned at one “working man’s” pub that that particular style of tweed hat is seen as a “lord’s hat” and the men in the pub weren’t happy that Michael was there wearing one. That is until they figured out he was an American, and forgave him because he didn’t know any better. He had more fun at that pub than any other he went to.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    .

    David I will keep your DIL in prayer as well. As Rita said, keep us posted.

    .

    I have a friend at church who is the absolute best at “arrow prayers”. That is short prayers needed on the spur of the moment and directed at God like an arrow right when they are needed. She’s a wonder!

    .

    Today is the Christmas Tea. I need to make the egg salad filling and be at the church by Noon to help get everything ready. The church sanctuary is absolutely beautiful with silver chair covers and beautiful decorations. Hard to believe that by 7 PM tonight it will be turned back into a church.

    .

    The weather is supposed to be in the mid sixties for this afternoon, so it should be good for the tea.

    Everyone have a blessed day.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    .

    Another busy day today, setting tables and decorating for tomorrow’s tea. Then tonight’s “girl’s night out” gun show. I am taking a friend with me, and it should be fun.

    .

    Almost had a panic attack yesterday. I need to buy 6 dozen mini-croissants for sandwiches tomorrow, and I found out that Costco doesn’t carry them anymore. After a few minutes of “what now???”, I remembered the “Great Buns” bakery and went over there. They do a lot of commercial baking for the smaller casinos and restaurants (as well as being open to the public – their sourdough bread and chocolate eclairs are awesome!), and I was able to order what I needed, and will pick them up this afternoon. A lot more expensive than Costco, but worth it.

    .

    It’s supposed to get up to about 55 today, and it is already 49. The sky is overcast, but not deeply so. Light jacket weather, I should think.

    .

    Everyone have a blessed day.

    Mark Trail If the lava is pouring off that cliff right behind them, jumping into the ocean won’t do much good. Oh, sorry. I forgot. This is cartoon physics.

    Judge Parker Will this be a “Stockholm Syndrome” story about Sophie?

    Rex Morgan I’ll agree with Rex (and David). Even the hands-free phones are distracting. I’m just wondering how many more PSA’s we’ll get in this story-line.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    .

    Rita, it looks like the 32 degrees the other night was our low. The forecasted temps are rising again. After tonight’s forecast of 39, the lows don’t get below 40 for the next week. Daytime temps hover in the low 60’s.

    .

    Today is going to be a busy day. The Christmas tea is on Saturday, and the next three days will be a zoo! And please, someone remind me to take that wreath I made for a raffle prize! Dale’s funeral is this afternoon, too. (We don’t know when Joyce’s will be, sometime after the 17th.)

    .

    Everyone have a blessed day!

    Today is a day of remembrance. Everyone who lived in this country on that day, and most of the children of those men and women have a strong reason to remember what happened 75 years ago today. It was an unprovoked sneak attack on a country with which the Japanese were NOT at war.

    .

    The dates you listed were an entirely different can of worms. We WERE at war with the Japanese, and about to invade their homeland. Literally thousands of American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were saved by dropping those two bombs. By today’s standards, yes it was a bad thing to do. But you must judge it by what was going on at the time, not by hindsight. You are the one who injected politics into this thread and why you would do so is beyond me.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    .

    Mark and David: I found Pearl Harbor strips on CK. Both Family Circus and Dennis the Menace have mentions of WWII. Isn’t it funny that they are both strips about children.

    .

    Rita, as beautiful as the feed you showed us the other day was, I am glad to be here in Nevada. Last night’s low was 32, and that is quite cold enough for me. Michael tells me that there is a major cold front coming down from Canada for the next few days, and it sounds like you have already gotten it. Today’s forecast is for 54, but it is already 50 so I don’t know if we’ll stay that low.

    .

    Everyone have a blessed day.

    I said you would love the ending, and here it comes!

    Cats are continually learning. They are very smart (or at least most of them are – we had one of the “other” kind once, dumb as a post) and can figure things out quickly. My boys know exactly how to do what they want, and if I present them with something new, they have usually mastered it within a day. They also know what “no” means. They don’t like it, but they do respect it.
