Welcome to my page

This is a picture of the Naperville Riverwalk in the fall of 2008 on a early Sunday morning. I love to walk along the Dupage River early morning and even in the Winter. Just up around the bend is a bridge with rapids running underneath it - you can listen to the water - very nice.

Hi Mary, Thanks for the visit to my page. It was 96 here today. The whole town is getting pretty impatient for cooler weather. It was cooler last weekend (upper 70's) and then it warmed up again. Just teasing us I guess. But hey, at least we won't be doing the trick-or-treat thing in the snow like I did when I was a kid.

Hello Mymare - I am just stopping in to say, "Hello." I have brought you a gallon of Michigan Apple Cider. It is very good this year. I hope all is well with you and your family.

Hello Mary! - Thanks for the visit. You have made a lot of stockings! I can remember in years gone by sewing stockings for school. They were simple felt stockings, but I would do about 100 on the sewing machine for the feast of St. Nick. The children would put their shoes in the Hallway that More...

Thanks for the visit! I had an uncle who lived in Naperville for a while back in the 70s. I can remember stopping at his house on the way back to school in Minnesota just after New Year's Day, 1977. It was horribly cold and there was a blizzard that made driving as hazardous as I can remember. More...

Thanks for the great welcome. It is spring here in Melbourne but we have a reputation for changeable weather. Beautiful one day horribly the next. Food sound nice but I am a chocoholic.

Hi, Mary! Thanks for the reply. It's been so long since I lived in the Chicago area that I can't keep up with all the changes! I was born in Oak Park and grew up in Crystal Lake, then moved back to Oak Park during high school. As an adult I lived and worked in Chicago (lived in Old Town and More...

Mary - interesting video - it reminded me of a costume my mother made for me when I was in grammar school. I was a giant pumpkin. It was hard to sit down in class.

BTW - if you have a photo you want to submit for an avatar, maybe I can help. The main thing is getting it down to size to submit & must be square. Let me know.

I LOOOVE the Rocky Horror Show! My favouritist movie ever!
It had quite a cult following here when I was in my late teens, back in 19blurdyblur. It used to be on at the local cinema at 10.30pm every Friday night for years. We would dress up in all sorts of get-ups and we knew all the dialogue More...

to you, Mary! I have brought you some of that wonderful Apple Cider, a Caramel Apple, Cinnamon/Sugar Donuts and a bag of apples.

We have had such a beautiful Fall this year. About half of our leaves have fallen. Usually by Halloween they are mostly down. We have seen quite a few deer and turkey!

I hope you have a safe and Happy Halloween.

Hi Mary... thanks for visiting my page and your warm welcome, even though it's starting to get cold out there, you still have that warmest of smiles.... In here, my place, Cebu City Philippines, we don't have winter, it's all sunny and warm through out the year, but we get our share of cold air this time of the year... Have a great day... ciao

Thanks for the heads up for our Aries horrorscope today, Mary. A good one. I was invited out on the spur of the moment for breakfast with my niece and her partner, both of whom I get on well. We had a great morning and I think we did feed energy of each other! I left there and had a very productive day.

Just a quick question, where do you want to use the picture.

Mary - Do you need help on fitting your horse on your avatar? If you want me to give it a try, I will be glad to give it a try.

Hi again Mary,
Unfortunally I am the bearer of bad news. The personally smilies are only available to Supporting Members. Why not think of signing up?
As an alternative I can suggest that you try and make the images as avatars. So sorry I couldn't help you. Instructions on how to make them More...

Mary - thanks for stopping by. I, too, wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Don't eat too much turkey. If it's true that you're the only one eating it, then please send me a doggy bag! We're dining out at some friends so I'm not doing a bird this year, and I'm going to miss all those wonderful leftovers!
