Five on a Friday  
1. We had 20 people at tables set up on the riverbank and perfect weather for Thanksgiving. My brother, Chris, came down from Maine and Bob's sister and her husband came out from town. Big Jack was here and he and his childhood best friend Eric helped Bob set up the tables. Bob's 70 and they are in their forties so they did most of the moving of furniture. Used the pickup truck Bob inherited from his friend Bruce. Our longtime friends and their families came too, as they have been doing for 30 years. Mary Sue will be 90. The youngest was her great grandson, Leif, who is about 6. My turkey fell apart but was still moist, but I have to admit as I was trying to carve it, if it hadn't been dead already, I would have killed it. We are having a leftovers party on Saturday night. I have already made soup of the carcase.
2. I moved all my bug stuff up to my office, because if I am writing bug books and selling bugs on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/WoodsPeople, I might as well do it where I write other stuff too. Combine, combine. I have it just piled up in there because I was cleaning out the guest room for my brother. Sorting will be fun.
3. Jack's been working out here fixing our siding (cypress) and it has been great to have him around. Sometimes he spends the night and Maggie deserts us to sleep in his room. He's more fun! I was taking my walk with Maggie the other day and when she heard Jack's car she took off for the house. Traitor!
4. I have had a lot of good thoughts come my way for my 69th birthday (Monday) but the best was my Happy 100th Birthday card from Jack and Jack. Kidders! And my friend Jan sent me one with two nuns on the front, and "we have to keep up our bad habits" inside. Yess!
5. I'm happy!

Thanks! It is really annoying to be this old. 60 didn't bother me but 70 seems OLD. Well at least I'm not old till next year. Or so I kid Bob who is 70.
