The leaves are falling in a grand splendor of fall colors. I suppose by now I should know all the different types of leaves that I am walking over? But, instead I have to listen to Nancy’s Paris memories of the rainy weather in Paris. According to Nancy, it rained a lot in Paris and it has been raining a lot here too. Can’t I just enjoy something without hearing Nancy babble on and on about Paris for once? Why don’t we visit Paris?
Here it is after the first Paris rains and it is raining again. The weather is going to clear up to be almost 80 degrees this afternoon. Even though we tossed out our geranium pot on the deck, we continue to enjoy the miracle petunia garden under the deck. I absolutely love checking the change in that petunia display each morning. The backyard is covered with a layer of leaves which means I will probably hear a backpack blower this weekend to blow the leaves away. No humans or me want to step in my dog poop! Hey, just saying like it is!
A few weeks ago, Nancy made a silly mistake of giving away her “favorite” DVD’s instead of those she could part with to her nephew. You may ask, well what were those DVD’s? They were the Bob Newhart collections and Mary Tyler Moore shows among other series and movies. By the time she realized it, her nephew had given many away. When Nancy finally thought, “well, hopefully someone will be blessed by those DVD’s with a relaxing time of either peace or laughter” she could let her senior moment go.
Humans need to let go of “things” and only hold on to the memories that those “things” brought us. I wonder when was the last time she had watched any of those DVD’s anyway? Oh, I guess they had watched a bit of Bob Newhart. Even I think Bob Newhart is funny. He always has these one liners that leaves me/us in laughter. So there, I hope someone is enjoying some laughter this very weekend over those accidental DVD’s she gave away. Now, she can give away the other huge box that was not intended to keep and we will free up even more space on those shelves.
If any of my readers have stories of unexpected giveaways or receiving, why not share with me and our readers. I will be watching my basket of dog toys and balls to make sure she does not give any of those away. OK, so I am a dog and I like my toys! No, I will not include a photo of my basket of balls/toys because then, you would know some of us are hoarders of some things. HA!
