Morning light

Like my Father before me, I am a morning person. I know this about myself and over the years have come to relish it.
I can remember my Dad calling up to us "Up and at 'um kiddies!" every school morning with great enthusiam. While
others may feel like burrowing deeper under the covers and are reluctant to leave last night's slumber, I can't wait to
get out of bed and sometimes have to will myself to stay there just a little longer. For me the morning is the promise of
something new. What? Who knows..........and that for me is just the point.

Posted by PicasaIt was an amazing sunrise yesterday as we trekked down Belding Rd enroute to MSU for the homecoming game. The promise of
a wonderful fall day unfolded. We were not disappointed in any way. We arrived to find ourselves perfectly positioned to tailgate
on a sunny patch of lawn right near Matt & company so he could visit with us and Mike and Laurie prior to a nice walk over to the stadium.
After a slow first half we watched MSU come alive in the second to the delight of all its fans and alumni.
The weather was perfect, our company was as good as it gets and the outcome of the game the cherry on the homecoming cake!

The Perfect Fall Wkd...............

More perfect weather could not have been ordered. And the company
just as perfect...........our delightful, good natured, handsome little grandson.
We've enjoyed the past few days with Lindsay, Dave, Dylan and even Matt.
Today we're hoping for a celebration dinner after the football game (MSU/UM) before they have to leave at noon tomorrow. We packed alot in...........Artprize, cooking Indian food together, going out for Thai and to Mangiamo's, a trip to the cidermill, a fall color walk on our golf course, a trial of the new wine bar downtown call "The Reserve", and there's still the game and seafood chowder to look foward to! For me the weekends don't get much better than this!

Top 10 Artprize

Well, the Monk didn't make it amazing as it was!  These five did as well as three from my previous post (not the trees).  I have to pick one of them as I'm a registered voter in Artprize and having a hard time with my
top 3.  The mosaic of the woman, the "Vision" and the Calvary pencil mural.  All really amazing.........what to do?
