31 Oct 2012 – Happy Bdays Adeline in SIN & Mark in Chicago/USA
Tue: Sandy’s impact and trail of devastation with app 8mil people out power in 15 US states and at least 33 people have died in the US. These superimposed pix (Trick in this case) show the power of Mother Nature, a situation not within anyone’s control. A touch of humour with the other pix might be the Treat.
Will not post any of the real pix as it is disturbing and sad enough to know of the havoc Sandy has caused. Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Sandy, a very devasting storm.
Family & friends who were in Sandy’s path are safe and sound except for some minor inconveniences. Here in CAE/SC there are more winds than usual, but nothing to write home about. Thus not hanging the paper pumpkin lanterns outside but having them indoors. Sharing this pix of a beautiful day yesterday when I was so blessed to observe Ellie’s math class.
The class was divided into groups and they counted app 400 seeds after weighing and measuring a pumpkin. What a creative and constructive way to conduct a math class. Would have probably love math if this was the way to learn in the 1950s. To Mrs Cain/Irmo Elementary, thank you for being Ellie’s teacher.
And so life goes on for the rest of the world. Happy Halloween to those celebrating and to my grandchildren who really have little understanding for the real world yet. Someday, they too will have to grow up. In the meanwhile, let them be at their life’s journey path, in this case carving pumpkin with their dad. Tomorrow will be the only night in the year where they are allowed to knock on doors saying Trick or Treat to their neighbours and receiving candies.
Trick or Treat pix will be posted in next posting. In the meanwhile will get this posting for last day of Oct out as my laptop is set on SIN time! For those who are young at heart to remember the Peanuts…
