Am I Losing You?

“We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower
that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense
unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every
language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.”

    Thanks so much, Susan!


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 11/15/17:

From My Daughter-in-Law, Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of NC - 11/12/17 - "THE BEST HOMEMADE DINNER ROLLS EVER!":

The Best Homemade Dinner Rolls Ever - "Perfectly soft homemade dinner rolls, a recipe that took 5 years to perfect! These really are the best homemade dinner rolls ever!"

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#15 in a series of 18)":
 
  These numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 - an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life more isolating.

   WOW! Thank you, Shari!

 
 

 

BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEAS:

34 Natural Thanksgiving Table Settings - "Nature is the best decoration for any occasion, especially if it's Thanksgiving – the holiday that is connected with nature very tightly. That's why today we've rounded up some beautiful and very natural table settings for this day. Fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs are the first thing that you'll need on the table: put them into simple bowls, wood, on the table itself or on the table runner – and you won't need any other centerpiece. Take branches, berries or tiny pumpkins to accent a place card. Add a cozy touch with some candles and stylish napkins and enjoy giving thanks in a simple and natural style!"


BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS (Sorry, not theme related):

Mary Kathryn Vaughn's Slouchy Spiral Hat - "This Slouchy Spiral Hat has a unique look when you use multiple colors while working it up. As you follow the crochet instructions you'll start to notice a spiral pattern emerging. The crochet hat is worked side to side instead of top to bottom."

Michael Sellick's Colorful Crochet Hat - "This Colorful Crochet Hat can be worn during the winter season or as a fashion statement during the summer season. This free crochet had pattern can be made with any colors you want, but we think the rainbow colors used here look great. The bright colors really pop against the black hat. Colorful crochet hats like this one are perfect to wear in the middle of winter they're an instant pick-me-up for dreary days. "

Roasted sweet potatoes are whipped with a maple syrup and egg mixture which gives them an amazingly fluffy texture. After spreading the potatoes into a baking dish, they are topped with candied pecans. This side dish recipe will be a welcome sight amongst your Thanksgiving spread!"

Lisa's Favorite Stuffing - "Are you a cranberry fanatic? If you are, you're going to love this Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. This easy casserole recipe for My Favorite Stuffing is made with apples and dried cranberries, both of which give it great sweetness and flavor. Impress your family and friends by making this homemade stuffing for your holiday feast. Once you skip making the stuffing out of the box in favor of making it from scratch, you will never go back. Those who love cranberry sauce will be especially please to enjoy another cranberry dish at the Thanksgiving table."


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/14/18:

Realizing at the last minute that it was his father's birthday, a teenage boy rushed to the corner store to grab a card.

Am I Losing You?

Written and recorded by Jim Reeves (20 Aug 1923 - 31 July 1984), 1957
 

Am I losing you
Are my fears coming true
How I wish I knew
Am I losing you

Is your love really true
Is there somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you

Am I too blind to see
What's been happ'ning to me
Ev'ry road has a bend
Will I be sweetheart or friend

Will the sweet things you do
Be for somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you

Am I too blind to see
What's been happ'ning to me
Ev'ry road has a bend
Will I be sweetheart or friend

Will the sweet things you do
Be for somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you
