Sunday 6:41   Good Morning Kindlers.  It is 40 degrees. Hope you have a great day.  My Amazon mail says my M-edge shipped so I will have that to look forward to next week.

Yay, Dori!  What color did you order?

    Good morning.  It's wet, having rained during the night and looks like more.  It's 37 degrees, which would be bad if it hadn't been in the twenties in the morning most of this week.

    I'm either going to go see Australia the movie or visit a visiting cousin if she's still in town at my aunt and uncle's home.  Maybe both...

    Good morning, everyone.  It's 72 here, and a bit hazy, but the sky is still blue.  We could use a little rain. 

    I haven't put up any Christmas decorations yet.  I always do it the day after Thanksgiving.  I know if I start going through my two racks of Christmas decorations, I'm going to have to start sorting and donating.  I just have way too much, but it's going to be hard to decide on what to give away.

    Morning all,

    23 degrees this morning and everything is frosty.

    The latest in the New York City saga is that my daughter missed her train! I am so mad I could spit....grrr....When I made the reservation, everything was booked except the 7 am and 8 am Acela. I paid the extra $50 for the Acela, figuring there was no way she'd get to Penn Station at 7 am, but hopeful she'd make it by 8. Well, guess what? She just called and they all overslept. So what happens now? I have no idea. Her friend's parents are supposed to be sorting everything out.

    What a way to start the day.  >:(

    This saga has all the makings of a good movie.  It's a very good example of Murphey's Law.  I hope that once you get her home, that she will be allowed outside for local events on the weekends.

    It's 37 and rainy here, too, Betsy. Yuck! But I finished my workout this morning and am waiting for Mike to finish up the chocolate chip pancakes! :D Life is good. Well, life will be good a long as he doesn't have to go into work today. I'm going to be screening our phone calls. ;)

    She is 17. Unfortunately, she seems to have inherited the "I have no clue what time it is" gene from her father. But I thought at least for this she'd try a little harder...

    Good morning from Missouri---
    It is 33 degrees and the ground is covered with our first snow of the season.
    I'll be getting ready to go to church in just a bit.  First time I'm taking my Kindle Bible today.
    Put in a spiral ham and potatoes in the oven already this morning so cooking is pretty much taken care of for the day.

    Travel update: she is going to be on a 10 am train. So hooray for that. I guess Amtrak managed to find an extra seat on the sold out train.

    Good Morining It's 35 degrees and raining here in New York.Lesile I know they should have set the clock to make the train.But it is the kind of morning you could over sleep. It dark and gray. If you did not look at the clock you would think it is earlier then it is.

    Yes, that what she said.

    Now that she is booked on another train, I am over my hissy-fit. I was afraid she'd end up on the Chinatown bus! LOL

    LOL  I glad she was able to get on the 10am train. It is just one of those morinings ;D I got up a little later than I wanted too. I did not have to be anywhere so it no big deal. Let us know when your daughter gets home. ;D

     Good morning
     thank God everyone went home.

    Leslie
     Whatever you do, after you hug her. make sure you don't make the mothers wish.   " I wish someday you have a daughter just like yourself"   because when  it comes true  (and it always does) you'll have to babysit.

    Good morning everyone! It's 35 and rainy. A perfect day to stay on the sofa and get the wits scared out of me reading The Stand. I just finished Marley & Me last night; my tear ducts got a thorough cleaning! It was very good! The Christmas tree is up and looks lovely.

    I read Marley and Me last year and gave it to my sister. She read it to her grand kids.  I'm looking forward to the movie.

    Meanwhile it's still raining here and we have a tornado watch..weeee!

    Good morning every one.  It's 40 and overcast here.  The wind is blowing 22-32 mph so it's a good day to stay in side.

    Good morning to all my Kindle buddies,
    I am glad to be home after 3 days, look forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight. Nice to have whispernet again also.  :) I am going to spend some time catching up on the boards now. We are finally seeing some sunshine after 3 days of rain, it is 48 and very windy. They did mention that 4 letter word S-N-O-W (flurries) and that is a big deal here in Alabama. My team got stomped in the "Iron Bowl" yesterday but after 6 wins in a row I guess BAMA was due. WAR EAGLE!
