I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 years!)

My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

FB said since I wasn't connected to you it would be sent to another address. Whatever that meant! BUT I changed my security status... come look for me now. Rebecca Hard (Becky Moore).

Yes, we live in paradise...50 paces from the lake's edge and it's a clean lake that isn't too busy with jet skis and motor boats. Mostly we hear that only in the summer on weekends! But weekday swims are peaceful and so lovely.
I think that Ti-min may have been scared off by a rather large dog that was with the couple who'd rented out the next door neighbour's cottage. The dog was Great Dane-ish in size and look (maybe a cross?) and if that dog gave chase to the cat, that is surely the reason why she was gone a whole week. (My cat sitter saw her on Thurs & Fri last week. Ti-min returned Fri of this week!!) We just don't know what happened because we weren't here.
But she's back and getting fur all over me again. emoticon

Re: swimwear...I actually went to Home Depot, before swim, in this, with a navy tunic thrown over it:

op/id_261061

And, yes, undergarment swim-boy-shorts.

I felt self-conscious, but then I realized, hey, in this neck of the woods, anything goes, then I just had fun with it! (it's such a "safe" suit: holds in the girls, slims the tummy, is flattering---I love it! Got it in Tall 14, and I'm usually a 12.)

Got my mini-blinds, picked up my tilapia nearby, then had a great swim!

Just an update. Today was great. Generally we love road trips, but sometimes we try to cram too much into a day.
