I'd rather be a could-be
if I cannot be an are;
because a could-be is a maybe
who is reaching for a star.

I'd rather be a has-been
than a might-have-been, by far,
for a might-have-been has never been,
but a has was once an are.

"The biggest myth about Southern women
is that we are frail types, fainting on our sofas.
Nobody where I grew up ever acted like that.
We were about as fragile as coal trucks."
-Lee Smith

My dear bud of many years ~Beth777~ is my emergency contact.
My name is Diane, but go by 'di'. DH and I have been married 53yrs; have a son, retired USN; daughter, school teacher; blessed w/5 g'children, including twins. I'm Kentucky Bluegrass-born, but Alabama has been home 50+ years. ROLL TIDE! We're down to just one critter now. Li'l girl Darby is a 1yo Turkish Van. (We'd never heard of that one!) She is still very much a kitten, w/an attitude that keeps us in a state of alert, or maybe panic:) Our vet, whose shelter we adopted her from, gave us no warning, but after less than a week we knew something was up. I googled her breed temperament; first paragraph included, "Put away breakables if you have a Turkish Van in the house." umm... Too Late. lol Our tabby cats were sane! It's an adventure with lotsa love, and our Darby aka "Dobbie-Dobbie".

"ANIMALS... in a world far older than ours, finished and complete,
gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained,
live by voices we shall never hear." -Henry Beston 1928

I love... a child's soft kiss, lunch w/friends, the silence of falling snow, playing Yahtzee with DH and g'kids, stillness of deep woods, puppy breath, cat purrs, four-part harmony, Appalachian mountain range, wintertime & snow, University of Alabama Crimson Tide football season; genealogy research, the computer and all its gadgets, apps, widgets and toys; my ancient PSP7.04.

My goodness, this week and weekend have gotten away from me!  I looked up and it was Sunday!  Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend, and it hasn't gotten too cold on you, wherever you may be.  The temp here is supposed to drop this evening as a cold front moves through.  Best wishes to all for the coming week!

Psalm 25:4-6

Show me the right path, O Lord;
    point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
    for you are the God who saves me.
    All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
    which you have shown from long ages past.
