Morning Folks 10 20 08

Morning Folks.

Last week was not the best week for us. As many of you know already, Ed ended up in the hospital for 5 days with a nasty staph infection in his elbow after tripping in the parking lot and landing on his elbow. We went to the ER last Sunday night, 4 days after he fell, his arm swollen to twice its size and very sore. They admitted him right away and started massive doses of IV antibiotics immediately. But, all's well that ends well, and now he's home and well on his way to a full recovery. He should be back to work on Wednesday if the docs give him permission. But that was last week.

This week, on the other hand, has started off just great. It is beautiful here, much warmer than usual with temps in the 70s and 80s. But, we have some chilly nights and the leaves are beginning to turn. TN has some pretty foliage, but nothing like the colors of Massachusetts. The maples are so beautiful and everything is just so vivid. I asked Bill to send me some Autumn pix, since I won't be seeing the trees in person this year, and he was very accommodating.

Here is my Billy. (He lets us call him that now.) He was in a department store flyer when he was not quite a year old modeling a snowsuit, but hasn't done any modeling since then. I think he may have missed his calling, don't you?
How lovely New England is in the Fall. These are some really pretty shots of a spot I love in Sudbury.
This is the Grist Mill in Sudbury, a beautiful spot to photograph. You may have seen it on a calendar or two over the years. An episode of the old TV show Spencer for Hire was shot here. Spencer and his girlfriend were on a picnic in the scene. And there was a scene in a Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin movie done here as well. And, this is also known as the local lover's lane. At night they light it up and it is really very pretty, especially when the wheel is turning. They still grind corn and wheat here. It is a very romantic spot.

And here is Bill and his sweetheart Kim. They had a picnic for Kim's birthday, which was Sunday.
And what do we have here?

Bill proposed to Kim at the Grist Mill Sunday, and she said yes! He gave her a beautiful solitaire set in platinum and he picked it out himself. I am thrilled and so is he, of course. I already consider Kim a member of the family, but soon it will be official. I will have a daughter, finally. Doug will have a sister-in-law and Billy will have a wife. We will keep you posted when we know the date.

Congratulations, Bill and Kim. You were made for each other.

Have a wonderful week. I know I will!
