Amazing Talent

It has been BUSY around the house leaving me not as much time as I would like to keep up with things I want to.  But hoping for a slow-down – and bet that super cold weekend we have forecast will help out.


One thing I do know . . .  I’ll NOT be doing any more raking of the leaves in the front yard.  Would guess that about half the leaves are still on the ground making a nice brown carpet that covers up the muddy spots from the 6+ inches of rain we had last week. And we’re looking for more rain (sleet?!)  this weekend.    If I were going to do anything about them, today or tomorrow would be perfect since the temps are in the 70’s.  Windy but nice.   At any rate, Bear likes playing in them – so think they’ll be there until next Spring.


Seems most of the news stories we read are downers, but every once in a while a story pops up that is inspiring and makes you feel good.  Saw such a story earlier this week about a homeless man that plays the piano bringing people to tears.  Briefly, the story stated he had been homeless since he was six, that he’d not had any lessons and that his hands were damaged from years of frostbite.  You can read the whole story at this link if you care to . . . . Read story.


This guy has an amazing God-given talent and you can listen to him at the video below.  Note:  This video is quite long (44 minutes) – but there is a shortened version on the story page at the link above.




Now for a little humor.  The following was sent to me by a friend and offers up a great reason why mouse hunting just might be more dangerous than any other type of hunting.
