WEEKEND TIDBITS

BRIDGE UPDATE 9-11-09
BRIDGE UPDATE 9-7-09
GUINEA FOWL IN ACTION

Here is a meme from Tabor at One Day At A Time who got it from Darlene. You are to copy the fifth sentence of page 161 of the book you are currently reading. The book is QUICKIE by James Patterson and the sentence is,"Everything had worked out okay, hadn't it?"

If you missed my Thursday and Friday posts, here are their links:
AT LEAST I KNEW IT WAS MISSING
LEST WE FORGET

ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

  1. Loved the photo's, My thoughts and prayers were with you all yesterday. It's a date I can't forget my husband passed away on 9/11 but three years before your awful world shattering news.
    Take care.
    Yvonne.

  2. I love the clip of the guinea fowl! Do they always move around together like that?

  3. Annie,

    Enjoyed reading your previous two posts. We must always remember the atrocity that happened on September 11, to prevent history from repeating itself.

    Enjoyed the photos.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  4. Guinea Hens seem to have a herding instinct.

    9/11 joins 12/7 as days of infamy.

  5. Hi G.A. Good pics of the span. Hope it's open soon. I don't think there's a chance of me ever forgetting 9-11. Thanks for the reminder.
    Sorry about being thrown from the bike. Hope you get to motivating soon.
    The tenderizer maybe should be used on your knee now that you've found it. When it was missing you should have done like me and blamed one of the boys.

  6. Yvonne -- I'm so sorry to learn your husband's date of death was Sept. 11, three years earlier than our tragedy. I read your lovely tribute to him and especially loved his childhood photo.

    Riot Kitty -- Yes, the guinea fowl are an ocean of motion. They flow together across the property in a big LOUD lump.

    Mary -- We all have hopes that history won't repeat itself, but sadly, it seems it always does.

    Darlene -- Thanks for stopping by. Yes the guinea fowl definitely have a herding instinct.

    Cliff -- The bridge is coming together nicely and much faster than we imagined. Hey, now you tell me to use the meat tenderizer on my knee! I guess it's too late now. I will have to tell my doctor that I did. She will get a kick out of that.

  7. I love that line from the JP book. It's a positive thought for this Sunday afternoon (sick at home with a backache, sore throat, cough and runny nose).

    I think I'll pick up Julie & Julia and see what the 5th sentence on p. 161 says. You have my curiosity up!

    Have a good one, Annie! Stay healthy!!

  8. Annie, You know what I like best about James Patterson's books? The short chapters!

    Sometimes a chapter is only a page and a half. When I start to read a book and I look at the next chapter and it's 42 pages long,I get discouraged but Patterson makes every one of his books a page turner because he keeps the chapters short. PLUS. his plots are terrific. Right now I am reading "Mary Mary".

    Just started it and I'm on chapter 82 already (Just kidding!)
