Up extra early with Dolly this morning who has not had a good last couple days and nights. We can't figure out what is going on with her as she seems to never be able to get settled down .
When hubbie went to pick up refills on Bernie's meds yesterday they added another one to try and reduce the fluid more around his heart, he already takes 2 human Lasix pills a day but is still puffy all over with fluid.  Hopefully this new pill will help him. These old ailing dogs are both really pitiful at times.
I did chores and got ready for market.
Market was okay today but with the amount of folks who came through it should have been a great day. We had two huge tour buses that gave us crowded isles but few sales. These folks don't have anywhere to store things they buy. I did sell a couple aprons that could be folded flat.
After I left market I shopped around a little at Habitat Re-Store, a furniture store in town and Big Lots for a storage bench to collect all the kids toys in the living room but had no luck finding what I want today.
I ran regular bank, PO, and baking supply shopping as well as a stop at Farm Bureau to pay three insurance policys and a stop at Ingles to get some on sale roast. Whew I felt like I had ran a race by the time I got home but I still got things unloaded and put away before hubbie got in from work.
This has been another record breaking hot day.

As the sunsets this evening we can say good bye probably for the season to these warm temperatures as tomorrow we start getting a cold front that is dropping temps below normal. No threat of frost yet though.

October 1986 was a busy exciting time in the life of our young family with #1 son's 5th birthday a trip to see hubbie's favorite race car driver and Halloween fun.

These three made life wonderful !!!
Curb Market's Old Timey Day was always the first Saturday in October back then and this is my mother in her booth  that year.
The Curb Market hasn't changed much.
This old car was on display that year also.
On a sad note for 1986 October one of my favorite cousins had a heart attack and died. This is my cousin, Sharon Walker's dad. Sharon was daughter's wedding director and she has always been one of my closer cousins and friends. Loren had the heart attack on the way home from a horse show where he , Sharon and her husband David had spent the weekend.
Thankful for old memories, good and bad .
God is good all the time, all the time God is good !!
God Bless and Good Night.

What a busy day for you. We had the "high" temps over the weekend and are now back to more normal temps. Our overnight was around 43 degrees. But the high today will only be round 50 - cooler than normal. Have a great weekend. Blessings
