I saw it in the movie theater but tonight I watched again....the movie "The Queen." Now I realize in another day it will be 11 years since the night of that horrible event. The world lost a very special lady~a Princess. I remember spending the whole weekend, in tears, glued to the television. For those of you in the U.K. I can't even imagine how sad it was for you. My thoughts and prayers will be with her boys and the Spencer family this weekend.
After the movie was over I turned back to a Seattle TV station to watch the end of the NFL preseason game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Oakland Raiders~played at the beautiful Qwest Field in Seattle. My son and his friend had tickets and were there somewhere in that mass of people. Now he has to get out of the parking lot and drive home from Seattle...probably will take him at least an hour and a half. And he has to go to work tomorrow morning. I wonder if he's happy or sad? The Seahawks won 23-16 but my son absolutely loves the Raiders. He's got Raiders decals on the back window of his truck, Raiders shirts, jackets...you name it~he's got it. In the past he's flown to where the Raiders were playing even though he didn't have tickets to the game. Him & a buddy would fly in, have a cab driver take them to a sports bar where they could watch the game & get a bite to eat, then get a cab back to the airport and fly back to Seattle. Crazy? Yup, but he's a true fan. Would he dare root for the Oakland Raiders tonight surrounded by 40 or 50 thousand Seahawks fans (the 12th Man)?

The temperature hovered right at 70* all day today. At times there wasn't even the slightest breeze, then all of a sudden the wind would come up and blow like crazy. Then as quick as it came up...it would die down. It went like that all day. Weird ! My carport is already filling up with leaves. I swept them up today but soon it will be time to get the leaf blower out. I hate to see fall come...even though it's a beautiful time of the year~Old Man Winter is always right behind it.
Well, folks it's late...I think it's time to head down the hall with my book and my kitty. Until next time, Linda
