Good morning! A little later than usual, but I had breakfast with my brother and we both arrived a little late. I, because he sent me a text telling me he was going to be late and I wasn't expecting the traffic, he, because he was busy feeding his farm animals and... there was frost on his windshield. That's right, the temps dropped down to 31 (F). We finally had our first (late) frost of the year. For those of you whose hands have been sweaty with anticipation, we can no have Indian Summer.
And, of course, I had to listen to the new Beatles song Now and Then. Having lived through Beatlemania, I found it quite touching. I'm sure many who lived through the Beatles will be reaching for a tissue.
Yesterday afternoon I went over to my new neighbors to ask her to turn down her music, when I can hear the vocals through the wall it's too loud, and instead of apologizing, the first thing she asked was "do you like the song?" Dear me. We're on very friendly terms, so the conversation was nice, however she told me she misses her mom, that they used to get together every day and now her mom lives an hour away. Her husband works for US Postal Service down in Lancaster and he doesn't want to transfer up to Harrisburg, so he commutes an hour every day; that will get old fast. This is actually the first home they've ever purchased, mostly, I suspect, because it was painted gray and had new appliances. Other than that, I don't think they put a lot of thought into it. I wouldn't be surprised if it's not back on the market in a few years.
When I went up to bed last evening, as is now the case, she was already there.
