COMPANY AT MARKET TODAY

G-son was here this morning as his other g-ma who usually keeps him on my market days is at the beach with a friend.
I got ready for market normally since he is such a big boy and can do things for himself.
Right on time we were on our way.
He played games on my laptop and watched people go by all morning. I had a pretty good day today for a Thursday.
After market I had a nice helper with all my errands.
He was so good we made a stop at Mighty Dollar for a few goodies for him. He loved trying on all the Halloween mask and scaring people in the store.

I asked if he wanted one for Halloween and he replied "I wouldn't want to be that scary, I might not get any candy", smart boy !!

#1 son and I got home about the same time so he and g-son went home to take a nap.
The skies clouded up again this evening but so far at 10:30 tonight we haven't gotten any rain.
Last night's storm was the topic of conversation today at market,made me feel extra lucky that we were on the edge of it.
Another storm in the Atlantic Ocean is predicted to hit Florida or the Gulf coast next week. The national repulican convention is in Tampa,Fl so they are hoping it misses them. Tampa is the lowest city along the gulf coast. Someone maybe forgot that this is the middle of Hurricane season when they picked a city for the convention.
There are 2 more systems lined up behind this one.
It is scary to think that we are just entering what is typically the busy part of the hurricane season and we have already topped average storms for many years.
We will be in trouble around here if we get the remnants of a storm with all the saturated soil.
It's also hard to believe that most of the country is in drought conditions that are near historic.
 Hubbie went down to help the renter give one of his cows a shot for a sore foot and found out his wife was hospitalized this morning. She is 8 weeks pregnant and has been having a lot of sickness. When her work shift ended this morning she got very sick and had to be hospitalized.
Please pray for this young couple who are so excited to be having their first baby.
God has a grand plan for all this and it will be revealed in His own time and it will be wonderful.
Good Night and God Bless.

Sounds like you had a very nice day. I pray that you don't get hit by the hurricane and I'll keep the young couple in my prayers.

LUCKY US, HURRICANE ON THE WAY. WE WENT THROUGH CHARLIE. NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER. WHY TAMPA? WHY NOT TAMPA. I JUST FEEL SO SORRY FOR ALL THE WORK THAT WENT INTO THE CONVENTION AND IT COULD BE CALLED OFF. THEN THERE'RE FOLKS LIKE US THAT ARE TO OLD TO PREPARE.WE'LL BE ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE HURRICANE WHICH IS THE WRONG SIDE TO BE ON.NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT. SO MANY THINGS GOING ON IN THIS CRAZY WORLD. TO TOP IT OFF. I'M NOT FEELING WELL.

Your grandson is such a joy... What a cutie!!!! AND--he is so good...

I'm watching that hurricane also.. Looks like it will miss FL (except for rain and winds)--but it may hit west of Tallahassee...

We are hoping to get at least some rain here from it--but don't think we will. It's very dry here --and hubby and I watered all of the plants and flowers today. Amazing how different our weather has been when compared to yours.

Hugs,
Betsy
