Here's the birthday girl with her best guy.  They were just getting ready to go to church and paused so I could take a picture of the earrings that Grandpa gave her for her special day.
Sunday, October 28, 2012 - Happy Birthday to Granny!  It took me all day to get on here and get this posted.  We had a very nice party -- lots of pictures.  The usual suspects were here.  The food was great, the presents were thoughtful, the cards were sweet and funny and we had a wonderful time. 
     Here's the link to the birthday page:

Here's Liz (with the birthday balloon) next to Alan celebrating their October birthdays at Rosita's - where's the sombrero?
Friday, October 26, 2012 - Happy Birthday to Aunt Liz!  We all got together in 2006 at Rosita's in DeKalb to celebrate Liz's birthday but since Alan had just had his birthday three days before, we also celebrated his.
    At home, I have the sombrero pictures.  But I like the festiveness of the balloon.  And you can see Uncle Ron on the right.  Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Liz.  see ya later, djb

Alan on the farm dressed for success because he was outstanding in his field.
Here's Alan in later years -- he just can't give up those overalls.
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - HAPPY BOOFDAY TO UNCLE AL, THE KIDDY'S PAL.  I actually just saw two orbs in the above photo.  That's funny.  This picture was in Bergs' photos so when I searched for Alan on Picasa, this came up.  What a hoot!  He does look like he's having a good time!  Enjoy your boofday, Uncle Al.  have fun, djb

Marc and Diane last night at Bahama Breeze in Altamonte Springs.
Friday, October 19, 2012 - Since I wasn't here for Diane and Marc's wedding in August, I decided to take them out last night for a celebratory dinner.  They chose Bahama Breeze in Altamonte.  Believe it or not, I've never been there.  It was such a perfect place to go.  We sat outside but it's covered and there are fans creating a breeze.  The food was excellent and we had a wonderful time.  I still don't know why I don't live somewhere warm???  Congrats to the happy couple.  later, djb

We went under this bridge in a tour boat on Saturday.  It was so much fun!
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 -  Diane and I went on the boat ride on the Chain of lakes in Winter Park after we went to the autumn art festival.  We had such a good time in May when we took the tour that we had to enjoy it again.  The weather was perfect.  And since we got there early, we got good seats....front row!!  Highly recommended.  djb

These gazanias remind me of the bright colors that Jarrett always wore.
Saturday, October 6, 2012 - When I got up this morning, I checked the thermometer.... it was 30 degrees on my porch.  brrr  I heard them say it was 28 degrees somewhere around here.
    Yesterday afternoon, I heard that it was going to get to freezing in the western suburbs.  That's when I brought most of the flowers into the (heated) garage.  Oh, that planter that I made is still flowering.  Let me put in a picture of that.  It is still so beautiful.
This planter has gotten out of control and I LOVE it.  Red dahlias are so pretty.
     You can see that tiny golden gazania in the bottom left corner.  And on the right bottom corner, you can see the leaves that are starting to fall from the trees.  Oh yeah, it is FALL, isn't it.  ~djb
