The Spirit of the Tree

Happy 53rd Birthday Matt & Gunnar Nelson

 Here are some pictures I took at Matt & Gunnar Nelson's Birthday Bash I attended...virtually on Sunday!  It was great!  They sang songs from their CD and some of their dad's, the great Rick Nelson, and a treat with a taste of their upcoming album, First Born Sons.  They read some email shout-outs and told stories from their life with their dad and where they are going from here.  I'm so glad I was part of their celebration. 

The celebration was held at Gunnar's studio in Nashville, TN.  
Gunnar & Matt close up & personal
Matt is the oldest being born 1/2 an hour before Gunnar!
 I could have watched them for another hour, but they said they'll be doing these virtual shows again.
You can keep up with them on FB under: 
Nelson Band.  
They are wonderfully talented and compassionate brothers who came from a fantastic family most of us grew up knowing and watching! 
Aw...a brotherly birthday hug! <3
PS - I had Cameos done by each of them last year and posted them on my website along with several others to share with anyone who might find them entertaining. :) I highly recommend requesting one for yourself or as a gift - a shout-out for a birthday or anniversary or other special occasion or for no other reason than a treat or pick-me-up!

Best of Both Football Worlds

 

Tom Brady ( TB12)
New England Patriots
Now with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We certainly were side-by-side with Tom Brady and the PATS throughout his 20 year football career, and now we have a 2nd football team to root for as TB12 may have left NE but has not left out hearts! 
With his new team in Tampa Bay, FL we are following his continued career with as much pride! With no practice games before the season began, they stand 1-1, which is really great under the circumstances. We believe the team will come together as they have more time to practice and play and learn and get used to each other.  It is looking like the networks are going to air not only our PATS games but will air the Tampa games because they know all NE fans are watching Brady very closely. He did what he wanted to do and had his reasons - he seems to be well appreciated in Tampa Bay by his coaches and players and no one can ask for more than that...to be appreciated. 
The best of both worlds...how lucky are we to be able to enjoy and cheer for two home football teams! :) 

John Davidson’s September 2020 Newsletter



This is John's most interesting and humbling newsletter so far. This is his boat back in the day where he recounts many adventures on "her."  Then he talks about a new idea he has for next June - he wants his own club in his town of Sandwich, NH...get it?  Club Sandwich? :)  He wants to get a show together and open it up to local talent...he's just like everyone else who is still looking for their purpose and what do we really want to do with whatever time we have left in this uncertain world.  Enjoy!

I've never seen such a congested Mackerel Sky as this one, but don't think rain is expected tomorrow? 
We shall see.

Did Anyone Send Me An EMAIL?

 So, I'm not the best on the computer and after a month of messages from COX Communications that I had to take action because they couldn't send me anymore emails - I have no idea what I may have missed. 

But, today I deleted several photos from my phone thinking that was the problem, but after reading a message from COX to check sent objects and junk, etc. I opened my "sent objects" and wow....I spent a while deleting it all!  That was the problem, however, I don't know because I didn't look, if I had any recent emails from friends or others whose email I wanted to read.  I deleted everything in there.  

I sent myself two photos from my phone and they went through and no email from COX telling me I needed to take action, so I'm good.  If any of my friends from out of state or country sent me an email within the last month, please resend because I never got them. COX said in their messages that new mail will be rejected.  From now on any junk I get will go to SPAM - what pests they are.  You buy from anywhere online and they send you email 3 times a day - every day!  No more...to SPAM they go!

That's all - I hope this will help if anyone who may have sent me an email reads this...if not they will think I ignored them and that would be sad. 

All is well...Nancy

I need a nap now!  :)

Caroline Myss: Never Never Land in Reverse





My Spiritual Director - Thank God for Caroline!



This is so worth listening to for 16 minutes.  There's someone special that crosses our path at some point in our life.  When you come across the right one - the one who makes sense to your soul, you know it and are grateful.

I Hate This New Format!

 Why can't people leave well enough alone?

I knew what I was doing with the old format.

In STATS I can't find "audience" which I use every time I check in.  This stinks...just another social media source gone to Hell!  If they change FB I'll have no use for a computer! Looks like we're getting back to basics. Life is coming to an end as we know it!

Cards & Roses

Birthday cards from Tom and friends out of state and a dozen roses from Tom I thought I'd add for memory's sake. This is a good safe place to keep them for future use, like looking at an online scrapbook! :)

How I'm Celebrating My Day

It's "My Day" today and I am thankful to have a few good friends who know me and went out of their way to send me cards of my "favorite things!"
~ Cats...Flowers...Pink ~
The newest favorite things are house plants which show on the 2nd card. Uncanny!
~ Sammy ~
I lost "Sammy" July 29th from an ear disease that turned to cancer and constant bleeding which added to numerous other problems. He didn't have a chance. So, I am not happily celebrating my birthday this year but am celebrating my "Sammy" instead with memories and love that is never-ending...and house plants. I decided not to take in any more cats as it's time to put my house in order - there is much to do inside that I couldn't do with the cats I have had for the last 32 years. I have loved them all and loved caring for them but the time has come to move on. 
~ Tom Brady ~
...and today wouldn't be complete without wishing Tom a very Happy Birthday as we share the same date except for the year. I am a New Englander and a loyal fan of the New England Patriots and Tom Brady, and so even though he left to play for Tampa Bay, I still love him and wish him the best when and if they get to play this season with covid 19 all over the country!  Now I have 2 NFL teams to root for as TB12 will always be loved and admired. 
Happy Birthday, Tom!

Russia - What Are You Doing?

Russia, what are you doing with my blog? Are you just looking at all of my posts or are you copying them?  There are 288 views as of this moment and I have to wonder what's going on because this isn't normal. Are they that interesting or is there another reason I have so many views from you and/or your countrymen? 
Tell me...I want to know.
