Tina & Alli ... (and my Beatley good music listens!)
Tina and Alli, my daughter and granddaughter, were just by to see us again. They are on their way to Orlando to catch a plane...off on their 2 week long adventure. They are going to Venice, Italy (will have a few hours layover in Paris, but probably won't leave the airport) Two days in Venice, then on a cruise ship for a full week; with several stops, including Athens, Greece!
Another 3 days at the end of the cruise will be spent in Venice!
Needless to say I am a bit apprehensive about this journey, but I'm sure they will have fun, make lots of pictures and store up a lot of good memories!
We all had a nice meal out last night at Shells, a very good seafood restaurant here in our town! Grandson, Dan, joined us too, so that was good!
Dan was kidding me about being so short-saying if I wanted to take any thrill rides such as rollercoasters-etc- I'd better do it soon; because I'd soon be too short to be allowed on those rides!! LOL! Hey, I've never minded being short...but it gives a false impression sometimes ! :) Folks often see me as this little helpless lady...
Anyway! My girls are off! I pray they'll have a safe and fun trip!
They say they will keep in touch by internet! I sure hope so!!
My blue tinted, fantasy Fish/lily pond in my back yard! :) Lol- I like the way this looked. I could have posted the normal shot but, WHY go NORMAL when you can have something better!! ;)
Crepe Myrtle bush , outside front yard fence! This is Charles' favotite plant.
We have at least 30 of these bushes throughout our property!

My Beatles Music Sessions!
Late last night I got into my Beatles music.
Long time Beatles friend, Billy Preston, passed away a couple days ago. BP had contributed his talents on several Beatles albums. Some gave him credit for helping to bring the Beatles together enough to finish 'Let It Be.' during the Get Back sessions!
There had been some talk about Billy's passing, on the music forum I go to. Many of those Beatle Fans had met him at the yearly BeatleFest in NY/NJ area. All said he was a down to earth-friendly type, with the fans- so there was a lot of sadness with the news of his death.
This made me want to play my Beatles- 'Let It Be' and 'Let It Be..Naked,' as Billy Preston was so much involved, during that time.
I had a pleasant time listening, also chatting with a couple of 'BeatlesFan' friends! Still, I managed to get to bed earlier than usual- at 11:45!
(And, thankfully, encountered no spiders!)
