  1. From RKessler at 4:19am this morning….

    “My mother shook free from this earthly body about 2 am. She is now in the presence of the Lord.”


    Let’s keep her and her family in prayer.

  3. RK- “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” Matthew 5:4
    “I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;” John 14:16

    May you feel the comforting of the Holy Spirit in these days.

  4. Husband is off with the three. Taking twenty to the doc again, then off to horse riding. For such a sick guy, he is the energizer bunny.


  5. So sorry to hear your news, Rk. Just plain sad from this side that more time was not given, yet knowing God’s sovereignity insures He knows best and has reasons full of love for allowing what makes us suffer. Praying that soon you and your family will feel His “joy in the morning” even in the midst of sadness and grief. Sending love and virtual hugs from Georgia to New Mexico.


  6. Our Bible study is such a precious time. We have ladies of various background. The two who sang were from Baptist and Pentacostal backgrounds, but another Baptist had not heard that song in her background.

  7. It’s voting day, and we have sonething to vote for that we did not realize until this afternoon. Flexible! Life is all about flexibility. I was prompted to check online about changed polling places. No more assumptions these days. Always check. Yep. Location changed.


  8. made it to market. Now I will go get my friend on the way to school. She was happy to take me to school and drop off the suv at the autoshop as she does not need to be at school so early. Then I will walk down to get it before they close at 2.
    What a difference friends make.

  9. We have some local races here today (none where I live — or, more importantly, that I was assigned to cover, groan — we all hate election nights).

    I’d guess everyone’s mostly watching VA.

    Spent the day doing a port emissions story.

    Tomorrow is some state Capitol hearing on the supply chain I will have to tune in for.

    But tomorrow also is when the garage door guy is supposed to come — so he can basically tell me, oh, nothing we can do about that, the release handle is inside.

    Meanwhile, I texted my jack-of-all-trades gardener to see if any of his crew does electrical work. Yes. Carlos. And I now have his cell. Yay. I’ll call him after the garage door guy weighs in.

  10. Aw, editor just said if I have nothing more to do I should log off and spend some time with Cowboy. 🙂 I was debating whether to “call it” this week and take him in, but couldn’t do it. I had an appointment with the vet this morning and canceled it. (Office manager, who’s always had big dogs, told me she had an 18-year-old cat she’d bring to the office every week thinking “it’s time,” but the cat would always rally. That went on a while, she said.

    He’s not eating his dog food anymore — but will eat the chicken and steak I cook for him.

    Sweetest dog.

    I know his time is short. But for now, he’s hanging in there.

  11. Thank you NancyJill. I used to think it would get easier each time, but it only seems to get harder. Or at least it feels that way.

    Looks like the Republican won the Governor’s race in VA.

    Maybe a sign of things to come.

  12. Kizzie, poll workers get a small amount of pay for their effort, but at least it is more than for jury duty. The hours are very long, maybe 5:30 a.m. to at least 8:00 p.m. or longer if there are problems with the count. I have been a poll worker. It was fun when I did it.
