Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...still at Duane's house and work tomorrow. Got so much done! Picked the remaining green beans, alot of raspberries, and got my corn stalks to add decoration to my house.

We also, retrieved the boat from the mechanic and took it for a spin. Works well...NOW! But we think it has to be sold and another one bought! These "boys" love their fishing!! Duane and one of his sons and grandsons.So it will be an early night to rise and shine for work in GR.

Have a pleasant evening, buddies

HI Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...ANOTHER wonderful day in Michigan! Had a couple friends come to Duane's house to pick up 3 barrels of dropped apples....deer hunting is fast approaching! Duane and his sister, friend, etc spent the afternoon at Lake Michigan...maybe the last spectacular weekend we'll have!

We had the yummiest red raspberries Duane picked this am! Sadly, the garden is going to have to be shut down for the winter.

Just can't get enough of this weather and the colors!

Have a great evening, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...We have had a really great evening so far...grilled steaks at the cottage...AFTER I was done w/ work and an hour drive from GR to Muskegon. Made it just in time before it was too dark to see. Duane picked his raspberries and green beans from his garden. So YUMMY!

Tomorrow some more work for me and then out for dinner with friends.

Have a wonderful evening, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...It took a long time for me to work out my deep disappointment w/ Larry, but, since I still work w/ him, I have had to find the better side of myself and let go of that negative emotional stuff. Sooooo...w/ Duane's encouragement, we do things together every now and again.

This is the day of homecomings!! Duane gets back to the States tonight and his sister and her friend arrive this afternoon at the cottage. They both grew up here.

Going to be an exciting weekend! (It was never like this when I was w/ Larry...lol)

Have a fabulous day, buddies

Bril...You're Brilliant! (not Brillo8) LOL! I can't believe I didn't think of Google...guess I was trying to do brain stretches!! Now, there's a 9 letter word with one vowel..used twice...HAHAHA!!!

I have the next 2 days off...Hair appt, cottage readiness, meeting tonight and tomorrow....My friends arrive at the cottage AND....Duane comes home!!!!!!! Wow! What a long, long separation! Art Prize is starting today. I mentioned that to you last year, didn't I? We are planning on meeting up with Larry and his new girlfriend. I must be crazy to do stuff like this...lol

So you are cooling off? We have had very nice cool nights here with warming into the 70s. Still nice and the colors are coming out in the trees.

Linda and I got back home Sunday evening.

A 9 letter word that uses just one vowel? Hmmm. I can't. But Google says try "strengths".... lol T

I unusually cool day here. Only 64° with a lite shower. That's nearly 20 degrees below normal.

Have a great day Beach!

Can you think of a 9 letter word that uses just one vowel? Not sure if this one vowel can be used more than once in the word, though.

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Finally at the cottage for the first time since Labor Day. Thought I might get the lawn mowed here, but the rain isn't stopping. Guess I'll cook...spaghetti sauce (so MANY tomatoes), raspberry syrup.

Haven't heard from Duane in many days and hoping his trip is going well. He'll be back on Thurs.

Onward and upward, buddies

Bril...just have to do that when I retire...LOL! Duane loves to travel, too. Would be fun to get together.

Worked every day this week...qualified for some overtime!! That will help defray some of my expenditures from last week. I'll try to work most of the coming week, but Duane's sister from IL and a friend will be coming to the cottage later in the week. Duane will arrive Thur from Mexico. He's with his late wife's family celebrating that a year has passed since she passed away.

Lots happening here! Wish I didn't have to sleep...lol. I could get so much done.

Bril...Thanks! Today is a very special day...one year ago my dear sweetheart lost the love of his life, his wife of 47 years. I am very sad but also very thankful and grateful he has come into my life. I deeply respect all the love they must have shared...it is a most wonderful gift for him....and has brought us together to carry on!

Rest in PEACE, Cecilia.

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Yup!!! I was posting prices. My computer pooped out mid-week and when I got home Friday, I got a new one!!!

Soooooooo........had a really nice trip except for the computer dump. My sister was kind of a pain. She had to SHOP every place we stopped and even extra trips to special shopping! I HATE SHOPPING!!! It was hot, hot, hot until Friday morning when we were leaving. AA failed to let me know of a change to my flight, but luckily, all worked out and I got back home in time to buy my computer, unload my stuff, get myself dressed for a cold, rainy night at the Michigan Irish Festival in Muskegon with my beloved! We had such a great time there and even learned a bit of Gaelic...how about that???!!!

Well, I missed all of you, and you, Bril, especially.

Have a super evening, buddies

I think this must be the longest stretch without you here. But I see you have 6 consecutive days, so you must be posting prices at least.

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Well, food is such a focus here in Louisville. I've had pretty good food, my sis has had some really great food! 301 Bistro offered an unbelievable grilled pork chop! I got a taste and it was YUMMY! But I'm not spending too much for food as I have to spend on attractions.

We went to Mega Cavern and Farnsley/Moorman Family Estate on the Ohio River. It was very interesting. Two families...only...held this property since 1840s and was bought by the county in 1988 or so. Such a peaceful place to enjoy.

Off to Nashville or something that way as we make our way to my son's house.

Have an incredible day, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...AND WHAT A START TO THE WEEKEND IT WAS!!! Churchill Downs is really neat. We learned alot and had alot of fun! Our group included me, my sister from CA, my son and DIL and my granddaughters. Our race, the one my sister got to name, was #2. At the conclusion of the race, we got pictures taken while we got to present the trophy to the owner of the horse. We got to hob-nob a bit w/ the owner, trainer, and even congratulated the jockey. The rain that was expected, never materialized and the high 80s cooled nicely by the end of all the races...11 in all.

Tomorrow my sis and I will do some more site-seeing around Louisville. We're going to see the Mega Caverns and go to an historic farm. Should be fun, too.

So, off to bed!

Have a splendid day, buddies

HI Brillo8, new buddy: rcsteve23, and buddies

Bril...Yeah, we have really worked it out. He offered greater transparency in our relationship and brought me up to speed on his activities. I'm quite sure I can trust him!
We finished at Lakeview and headed home. AND...we made arrangements to stop in Lansing to have Duane meet my son and DIL. We went to their favorite pub(a pub he supplies w/ beer, etc) and he treated us to a great meal. Aren and Duane really hit it off and found a lot in common such as gardening! I guess I have to see to it that Aren gets some of Duane's asparagus roots! Now, how can you beat that for instant friendship!! LOL!

Another wonderful, joyous time with my GUY!!!

Off to work, this am!!

Have a terrific day, buddies

Bril...We're at the "Lakeview" house of Duane's doing a few projects. Storms rolled through yesterday all over the lower half of the lower part of MI. But sun is TRYING to break through.

Will return tomorrow evening after stopping by son, Aren's in Lansing for dinner.

Then, probably a day of work, Thurs, and then off to the RACES!! In Louisville!!

HI Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...OH, for SURE!!!! And to think I almost broke up with him last week! We had been apart too many days and such brief conversations that just weren't satisfying. And to add to that, I've been tracking his accessing the dating online site where we found each other. However, as a result of my utter disappointment, he stepped up, smoothed things over, and NOW is thinking we should try to have a double date w/ this other woman he has kept in contact with since way last spring...even while I was in Mexico w/ him. Sounds bizarre, but I am feeling a WHOLE lot better about our prospects together. She does have a boyfriend she seems to have been w/ since last April.
Also, I got to spend time with his youngest son and his grandson fishing yesterday and I think I made a few brownie points. Sadly, I didn't get to meet Duane's DIL. She had to stay back because the 3yr old had gotten into some poison ivy in Duane's back acreage the other day! Poor little guy was pretty miserable. There is a chance I will meet her if they decide to grill the ONE Chinook that little Danny and his dad caught while we were out yesterday!

LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Happy Labor Day, buddies
