Decisions, Decisions...

Ok, I think I'm done tinkering with colors. The yellow shown much brighter on a desktop so I'm going with sort of a Sox theme. Red, white, blue, and Fenway Green.

The photos were from last Tuesday on the previous post from my 4 day weekend. Since then I haven't been doing much but I'm heading back to NY to be with my family tomorrow- weather should be great 60s maybe 70s (15-20C). My grandfather passed away on Monday. Save the tea and sympathy though, we weren't all that close, but thanks anyway. He lived a full life, he was 78. He was the last of his generation on that side of the family, and now I have one lone grandfather left as my grandmothers have already passed.

But it has made me a little contemplative on my own existence.

Things I've been thinking about:

Life is short.

Life is what you make it.

Life is too short to be angry or hurt or to have an attitude or a chip on your shoulder.

Make sure your loved ones know how much you love them.

R.I.P Grandpa D, aka Dink, aka Bob. We will miss you. I know I'll miss the clam bakes and riding the 4 wheeler and snowmobile, among others. Here's to wishing we could have had another beer together.

Hellllooo, Atypical American!

I like the new design!

Per your request, I won't give you the tea and sympathy I just prepared. If I save the tea, it will just grow cold; I'd better pour it down the sink. As the sympathy is remaining warm and fresh, and smells like freshly-baked bread, I'll send you some anyway. Here you go.

Events such as this certainly do make you think, don't they?

Stephen, I'll raise a toast to your grandfather.

You and the family have a safe trip.

No tea or sympathy, Since Cake left you cookies, and Sperkle left you bread, and lois a tardis cake, I will leave you rum balls. In case you need to take some edge off later. Dont let your daughter get into them though.

Watch out for the tardis cake, it's much bigger inside once you start cutting. It will last you a lifetime.

Can I leave coffee instead and a bag of marshmallows?

Or I made macaroons, but I only have 4 and a half left, most of it is in my keyboard.

(I also prefer this new design)
