OMG! What a nail biting finish to the World Series. Cubs win, Cubs win!

I remember my grandmother sitting in her rocking chair watching the Cub games in the 50's and 60's. She would yell her disagreement at her TV. I learned to love the Cubs by spending time with her. This one was for you, grandma!

Yep, I still have it on TV, they are still celebrating. Although I am an American League fan, I am happy for the Cubs. I chose them over the Indians when I turned on the news several games ago and the game was on. I watched it every game since, trying to force myself to root for Cleveland, but I was enamoured with the Cubs.

Yep. Ice cubes rattle contentedly in the netherworld. There is bacon on the wing. The moon will be blue for at least this week.

As a life long Dodgers fan...meh.


Anyway, beautiful morning 31 degrees crisp clear sky and NO wind! Took the dogs on a 4 mile morning walk and sat on my rock watching the sun rise. A couple of red tail hawks were flying over us, just a very peaceful serene morning, for a change.

I wore my old motorcycle funeral escort rider uniform as a Halloween costume on Halloween. People seemed to think it was a good "costume". A few, when told it was a real life uniform, commented with some surprise that I could still fit into it. Well, yes. Are we supposed to gain weight after retirement?

Well according to the myths broadcast by the 20 somethings sitting in New York making commercials, yes seniors are supposed to gain weight, and be these tottering senile old fogies, unless of course, they (we) drink their pro biotic anti-aging super vitamix protein shakes.. get off my lawn!

I'm still in a daze over the election results and trying to wrap my head around what it will mean for the country. But I'm pleased that the related discussion in the Retirement subforum (and Economics) has been civil and informative which is not the case in some others. It reminds me why these are my favorites.

Yes there was the pall of gloom over my neighborhood.

But Fall foliage is now at it's peak and my neighbors are starting to rake leaves, make Thanksgiving plans, and get on with our lives.

At least the media is trying to spin this as a partially good thing for the country. Trump may actually help us with some issues that have not been dealt with previously. Time will tell...
