Attended a funeral of an old friend today.

She was in her mid 90s. A woman who had many children, and who was a great friend of my parents. Her smile and joyous voice would light up a room. I think we all know someone who fits that description. She was one of my parents neighbors, who would come over for a chat, a few laughs, and a cup of tea now and then. I decided to go to the funeral, to represent my parents also, who could not attend.

It was a tribute to such a great lady. One of her grandson in laws sang a song with the guitar, about an old man walking down the road. All of the children got up, to sing Amazing Grace. It was, very reflective on how much I enjoyed my youth in the area I was brought up in. Some old friends were there, that I had not seen for maybe 15 years or more. Strange how these things, bring people together. And, their children, growing into teenagers now.

I found that in the past, I usually was working or had other commitments, when these funerals took place for people that I knew around the area. This time, I made sure to attend this one. Funerals are not always something to look forward to. It is the darkest hour or time for a family to go through, but on the other hand it is the reflection and celebration of someones life. Remembering the goodness, the instruction, the wisdom they left behind. We are there just to say thank you. Have a good day,  till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
