Autumnn's Blue Eyed Kitten
Do you remember what you were doing on 9/11?
I think that is something that everyone in the US will remember forever. My husband and I were talking about it at lunch today and it seems like yesterday.
We were at a cabin that we used to stay at in Winthrop, WA on our motorcycle trips. We got up with the plan of heading farther east. We had our quick breakfast and headed out to check our bikes. Some Canadian riders were gathered together talking and said to us something about what a horrible morning it was. We didn't understand because the weather was just beautiful. But we hadn't turned on the TV in our cabin! So we rushed back in and saw the towers falling. No one knew what was happening and what else would happen. All we wanted to do was go home. You always feel safe at home. The Canadians were heading back to Canada! They didn't want to be in our country at all! The whole way home we didn't know what was going on or what more had happened. We just wanted to get there. A sad day in our country and knowing what we know now, it probably could have been prevented.
The weather here has changed and summer was here one day and fall the next! I am not kidding, that is how it happens in the Pacific Northwest. I thought I would freeze to death the first day. I kept piling on clothes but am slowly getting used to it. Sounds like the southeast is looking for some really bad weather. I hope all can keep safe.
I finally broke down and went to the Dr. about my knee. I got a cortisone shot and it helped for about 6 days! I did too much walking yesterday and had go put the knee brace back on. Guess I will have to break down and get the ex-ray. The last one showed arthritis in it, but at almost 80 that is to be expected. Insurance companies make you go through the hoops before you can get a thorough exam. I am very active and don't move slowly so it kills me to try to walk slowly.
Going to get back to work so hope you all have a super week and September if I don't get back soon.
