Happy October First!!!!

I can't believe it is 
OCTOBER
already!
Can you?
I stole this graphic from a friend...
shhhhhhh...

Anyway,
I am doing a bit of 
CATCH UP
today after not much
sleep for the last few days.

As sad as it was
the funeral for our friend, Ken, yesterday
was heartwarming.
So many people that turned out to pay
their last respects.
Amazing!!!
The little country church was full with
standing room only.
He was an wonderful man
and his absence will leave a
hole that will not be easily filled.

So-
Back tomorrow with my regular nonsense.
And for your smile today...
Does this prove that 
"all those that wander are not lost"?
hmmmm...

Looks like MyHero tossed the 
PICNIC TABLE
out of the way trying to find his way home.

ps..  I did NOT drive off and leave him there.

~Have a Happy October 1st~

Happy October to you Diana. I am glad that Ken's funeral was one of tribute to him. That helps the family so much. I find that the lonely time comes for people after the funeral and company have gone. It's quiet and then you truly grieve. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

So glad to you're back. Funny picture of your honey wandering amongst the dilapidated picnic table... hmmmm, and you say you didn't drop him off there?? You weren't dumpter diving and making him go get the wood from that table? See how rumors start?

Debby said...

I'm glad that there were some happy moments in such a sad time.
Yeah, its October. My favorite month. My son turns 40 today. Seems impossible.

Jettie said...

You may be right, he may be looking for a way home,

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

So glad that you were able to attend Ken's funeral. I am sure his wife really appreciated you being there. What happened to the table? Did your Hero get mad and kick it to the creek?
Rest up dear friend and slow down.
Hugs,
Mary

We don't take enough time to wander any more. Looks like your hubby is enjoying his quiet time.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Why does he look like he's sulking, Diana?? Are you sure you didn't just drop him off somewhere and take off? : )

I'm remembering your friend and his family in prayer. Such a loss for that dear family. You mustn't let him roam around like that!! He could get lost and then what would you do? LOL

Ramblingon said...

ou make the sun shine even in the evening. You are a delight. But aside from THAT, loved seeing your hero walking off into the nether lands..ne'er to be seen again. Heehee. BTW, I have three other lady bloggers from your State and they are THE best women. Fabulous senses of humor, honest as the day is long and just all around great friends. AND your State is gorgeous. So is mine, but yours is in a different way,

Hi Diana, It will be hard for your friend's family, but he doesn't have to suffer any more. God will be there for them. October is a special month for us considering we will be married 51 years the 19th. The weather has been beautiful for the most part. My favorite time of the year when the trees turn to their beautiful colors. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
