For the Fun Friday Halloween Challenge Click Here
Hi everyone sorry this is a day late. In case you didn't know Hurricane "Sandy" is about to hit the Eastern Seaboard will impact 60 million people with prolonged power outages. So if you don't hear from me next week that will be why. They are calling it "Frankenstorm".. Spent all day yesterday getting prepared and working for an insurance company does not help the stress level knowing how many people will face devastating loss. For anyone in the path my best tips for things people don't often thing about...fill your gas tank, get some cash,  gas pumps & ATM's don't work when the power is out. Charge your cell phones and laptops and last fill some ziplock bags with water put them in the freezer they will help keep the food cold longer and give you extra water when they melt. 
Okay now for some Happy News

  5. Stay safe. Growing up in E coast FL I weathered many a hurricane. Temps here in Central TX are in the cold 40s. Brrr. Yesterday hubby & I rode our tandem bike thru the neighborhood. I wore a turtleneck with a shirt over it and a jacket over that and had gloves on. I had the gloves off but was able to put the gloves on while we were on the bike. Guess my balance on a tandem with hubby is good because I know i took my hands off both handles at one time. Thanks for selecting my Snowman Trio in Top 3.
