Of Harvest Moon and Dancing Cows


As I came home from the grocery store tonight - I was struck by the awesome sight of the moon backlighing the smoke from the fires. Not a sight I'd want to see again, just because of what the county went through, but a fascinating sight all the same. At this time there are still 45, 000 people still evacuated from the fires. Please keep the firefighters, and all those in distress in your prayers.

Today was the first day back to work at our company for the full crew. We were all relieved in the office to get out of our homes and away from cabin fever. Why it should be so satisfying to win a game of computer chess and cause a cow to dance I couldn't say. But it is.

Glad to hear things are starting to get back to normal for Karen. The people in that area, continue to be in our prayers.

That photo of the moon makes me think of God's eye looking down from Heaven.

Cool picture. Glad things are starting to settle down.

When I worked at Boeing, I was the only woman in my "group." We used to play Hearts at lunch or chess. It's funny how men always underestimate women to their own peril.

Like when we had some team building exercises that dealt with a hypothetical scenario of survival on the arctic tundra. The guy in my group that insisted we give up some crucial item (that would've kept us alive if they had listened to me) and kept the hand gun instead because, oh my, there might be lions or tigers or bears, should've been flogged...hypothetically, of course!

Prayers continue.
