Happy Thanksgiving and a Little Bit of Halloween I Didn't Get to Post

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving. I know I'm a little late making a Halloween post but I was just able to get these pictures last weekend. Brother loved Halloween & Thanksgiving more than any other Holidays. He was so missed today but I know that he watches over us. In his youger years Brother raced motorcycles and he was quite good. I remember walls full of trophies and his picture in the newspaper and he was quite a handsome young man. Anyway when I saw this car I just had to get pictures for this blog even if it is a little late. This is a stock car owned by the vice president of our company. All of the artwork was done by an employee and I must say a very talented employee. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have.

Have a safe happy Holiday weekend!

Not so many years ago there was a gentleman that lived in a very large city.. He was a very wealthy business man; he owned several large homes and luxury cars. He had a beautiful wife and he was a very good husband and a loving devoted father. He was well liked by his neighbors and had many friends but there was something missing in his life. So one evening after dinner his wife told him that she was worried about him. She knew something was wrong and was very concerned and wanted to help if she could. So he confessed that while he loved his family deeply there was something indeed missing from his life. I’ve never known truth he said. In all of my life I’ve tried so hard to be honest in every endeavor but still I feel that I have missed the meaning of truth and it troubles me.
Well they decided that he should go on a mission, a search to find TRUTH. The very next morning he set out. He would travel near and far over thousands and thousands of miles searching for truth. He crossed oceans and valleys and deserts, day after day searching for truth and finally just when he was about to give up he found truth.
Now truth was living in a cave at the very tip top of a remote and haunting mountain. She was an old and wizened woman with long tangled and matted white hair. Her skin was yellow and dry and cracked like old worn leather. Her eyes were pale and gray with dark circles beneath them and her fingers were long and twisted and knotted with age. She was a frightening sight but when she spoke her voice was lyrical. It was like the most beautiful music he had ever heard.
As the months passed she taught him the mysteries of ancient times. She taught him all the magic of truth and all the mystery of truth and gave him all of the lessons that a wise honest man should know.
He stayed with her for a year and a day and when it was time for him to leave he said to her “what can I do for you? You have given me my hearts desire, you have given meaning to my life. What is it that I can do for you in return? What can I give to you?”
Well truth sat quietly for a few moments and she placed a twisted, knotted finger beside her wrinkled check and thought for a while and finally she said.
“ Yes there is one thing that you can do for me. When you go out into the world and you tell them about me…tell them that I am young and beautiful.
I heard this story many, many years ago from a storey teller. I cannot remember the name but the story has stayed with me and I have shared this with my children, grandchildren and my nephew. I hope that you will enjoy it also. Have a blessed first day of Autumn, it's finally, really here!
With a Nod of her head
And a flourish of her cloak
She flies away
On a puff of smoke.

A Precious Familiar Spirit

Hi Everyone,
We promise there is much more to come with this blog. I am Sugar Bee, I was rescued just a few weeks before Chuck left us and I was one of his favorites. I was about five weeks old when my mother was trapped end taken to the city animal shelter end euthanized. My two siblings were also trapped and met the same fate but fortunately I was rescued before I got into the trap and I am loved and spoiled. I may show up anywhere, especially where I'm not supposed to be but that is a part of my magic. Please be patient we promise to entertain you.

August 5 2009 Beautiful Moon

Welcome to my first post. Please stop by often and visit. You never know what you might find here.

Tonight we had the most beautiful full moon. My camera could not even begin to capture the beauty of it.
It brought to mind a poem that I shared with my brother, children, nephew, and grandchildren.
It's one of our favorites during autumn and at Halloween.

The Highwayman
By Alfred Noyes
The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding--riding---riding,
The highwayman came riding up to the old inn door.
You must find a book or look this poem up online. The story is so beautiful and the poetry is just magical.
