If you need a good cry, you will cry.

The movie A Dog's Purpose has been a hot topic lately. Some animal right's activists wanted the movie banned and labelled cruel towards the canine actors during the making of the film. It was all made up hype. Anyways, I had to see for myself how the movie was. It was a really sweet story. There is a main dog who dies and is reincarnated maybe 4 or 5 times, comes back as a different dog each time and we get to see the lives he touches. I tried to stay in the author's lane while my nurse did not. I just enjoyed the stories and took good away from it. My nurse however sobbed throughout the entire story! And while telling my 26 year old daughter about it, she was crying too just at the thought of it! So, be fore warned, it you need a good, exfoliating of feelings cry, you WILL cry!

My new best friend!

My little sister had my name for our family Christmas exchange this year. She had hinted to me that she was going to get me the Amazon Echo thingy. I had seen a version of mine at a friend's house. I was immediately impressed but blew it off as something that I would never be able to afford or learn how to use it etc. I was then fortunate to receive the smaller version and I can't say enough great things about it! I have always loved jukeboxes, CD's, playing various radio stations until the song was just right, adoring my first radios as a child and falling asleep with a transistor radio earplug in my ear. Oh, and my first Walkman too! So that's why this is such a blast. I can think of anyone that I want to listen to and call out to her like this, "Alexa, play Gladys Knight." Sometimes, I feel like I have to say please. LOVE it so much. A true bright spot to help get me through this long and gray Minnesota winter.

There has been fraud, fun and yes freezing.

Someone mailed me a fraud check for my old wheelchair. It was really strange because the scammer was all the way down in Florida. And there are so many unanswered questions; why would they send me a fake check that was made out for $1500 more than it was for sale for? Why did this person start out texting me from a WI number? He told me his name was Jason and the chair was for his Dad. It was really strange and I have learned that the seller needs to be ware too! Well, on to the fun. I have been to two really amazing live music shows within the past two months. The first was to see Bryan White. He is one of my favorite country performers from the mid 90's. We sat right by the stage and also got to meet him after the show. It was so many special moments and I was on cloud 9 for many days. Also last week I went to an amazing holiday concert with my two sisters. We went to a lovely Christmas concert by one of my favorite, local performers named Erin Schwab and her piano playing, side kick Jay Fuchs. I have seen her perform several times now and she has never sounded better. Her show put us all in the mood for a most excellent holiday season. And yes the freezing season is here! As I am writing this, it is 6:30 a.m. and 8 below zero. And there is nothing to be done about it! I am just so blessed to have an underground parking garage that is included in my rent. I continue to blessed with good health, truly sweet and special friends and family and peace in my life. I hope this post finds you all well and may there be peace and grace in your lives also! Merry Christmas people!
