I am enjoying the mixed weather we have every Fall. One day it is Summer, the next Spring and sometimes actual Fall weather. It gets cold once the sun goes down.

Taki FINALLY asked a professional to come and trim our trees. WOW, it is amazingly empty. I only almost cried once. All the smaller trees he trimmed. My biggest most beautiful olive tree, he stripped bare. It has nothing left but a few sturdy limbs. 😦 It’s breaks my heart to see it like that. It provided shade for us and shelter for our cats. They loved hiding and playing in it. It also blocked us from direct view of the street. I foolishly did NOT take before and after photo’s. He will be back in February to trim the rose bushes. He and I did not agree on everything. He has a few ideas that I am going to have to fight to not let them be done. I like my bird of paradise the way it is and where it is. He wants to split it all up and divide it along the front wall. Near my beloved olive tree. I do not want that and will beg and plead for it to be left alone. In it’s corner where it provides us with such beauty you think you are in Hawaii. 😛 I wouldn’t mind something else going along that wall to block out the street a bit.

Michael-John went to a car show. The first one to come here. It got rained out. They told people to bring their tickets and they could get in free. So he did. He enjoyed it. I would like to have gone and taken photo’s.

Taki and I went to the fruit and vegetable place where Maria works (2 days a week for 14 hours) and did some shopping. We then went to a near by coffee shop to bring Maria and two of the gals she works with coffee.

Michael-John’s throat is very sore. It hurts even to chew. When I got to the store to relieve George he told me his chest hurts. Sadly both my boys are sick. I am at work and want to be there to smother them in love, chicken soup and fresh squeezed orange juice, bed rest and what ever I can do for them.

thinking of you and praying for you, Deb


Working up to 16 hours a day 7 day a week took a toll on me. I am down to 8 or 9 hours a day 7 days a week now. I feel much better.

Waiting to hear from a friends friend if we have 3 free round trip tickets to NY in December. Taki, Michael-John and I. Time will tell.

George and I will be working until the end of the month. On November first Taki will open 4 hours in morning close for four hours and then open up in the evening for four hours. If he has businees he will do that for two weeks if not just one week. Rumor has it that we will be full with visitors from the Oriental countries.

Maria is working only one job now. Twice a week from 7am until 9 pm. )The other job was on the other 5 days a week from 5:30 pm until 11 pm.)

thinking of you all, praying for you, Debra
