Pat and I
My area (the Pacific Northwest) has been having a lot of rain recently but the rivers are finally receeding and we have had a couple days with little rain to add to it. My house is located at over 200' elevation so I have had no problems from flooding. The next storm is due to arrive tonight, but there are also cooler temperatures so much of what falls in the mountains should be in the form of snow. That will reduce the volume of water that reaches the rivers and streams right away. The offical amount of rainfall in two days in Seattle was nearly 9 inches. November is usually the rainiest month of the year here but the normal average is less than 6 inches, for the whole month. So in two days we exceeded by about 50% what we normally have for the month.
My older son should be back soon from his boating trip on his Navy ship. It will be good to see him again. He missed his son's 13th birthday party but should be able to spend time with him again soon.
I am still going to the YMCA at least three times a week for my exercise class and watching my diet. So far since starting into this about two months ago I have lost 15 pounds and feel like I am in better condition. Pat also watches what she eats and is now helping me to do the same. A couple of times I have suggested we share a desert and she gently points out that neither of us really needs one. She is good for me in so many ways. I am very lucky.
I'm glad you have met her and will look forward to more posts about your adventures together.
Keep us posted on your happenings, and love on Huggy for me. ;D

HUGS for Huggy
Nelson DeMille has a new book out. Looks like it will be a good one. It is based on the "secret society" conspiracy theories. Can't wait to sit down and read it.
Pleased to meet Pat. that is a nice name and is also my wifes name.
What a lovely picture of you and Pat! Wow, it's the smiles on your faces and in your eyes that tell the story. ;)
Our weather has been crazy. Almost 80 one day then down to the 50's the next.
You sure have had a lot of rain ... please send some over to here ... we really need more. It has rained some, but nothing particularly substantial.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
A question .... does Huggy like Pat as much as you do ?? That's always a sign !!
Take care, friend, and look after yourself .... Meow
