I want to share this...

First this pic...again not a great photo, but still I like the subject.  There were about a dozen, maybe 14 swans out in this field...most were sleeping.  But two or three remained alert.  I assume on purpose.   To watch for danger.  They were too far out plus it being the middle of the day...didn't make for a great photo.
Now, I want to share a site with you, it is called Sean of the South.  Well, let me go back in time a bit...he has a book out by the same name.  I found it through a newsletter of kindle books.  It was free.  I told my SIL about it, she bought an actual book for her brother.  And she read it.  Now I got the one for my kindle, but had not read it yet.

So she reads it and discovers his website...and at the top of the page you can subscribe.  Except me...but that is another story.

Anyway, so since I can't get the subsription to work, she forwards the stories to me...THIS one--The Big the one that came this morning....if you read no other, read it. But I think some of you will enjoy all the stories.  At the first link I gave you, you can scroll and see the stories.  Just realize that down at the bottom of each story on the lower right side, you have to click  'more' to see the whole story.  The word 'more' is in light gray and barely noticeable for me.

I hope you will read and tell me if you enjoy it/them as much as I do.  They are wonderful.

Roger's blood pressure was up last night...I could not focus enough to blog after I discovered that.  He had eaten salty popcorn and I am assuming that did it.  I increased one of his BP meds and it finally came down by the time he went to bed about 4 hours later.  Don't worry, I am still not giving him as much as they originally said for him to take of this med. 

His BP is still down this morn, so things look brighter.  We have to run errands this morn...but hopefully I will get to visit some later..

Love you guys!  And don't forget to read The Big Thing.

Yes, I love that story. When my son died, someone asked me, How can you still believe in a God who allows an innocent child to suffer?" I answered, "How can you not believe in God? Where else did the love come from that even strangers helped us, knowing we could never repay their kindness?"

Wishing you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2017. I do hope that Roger's blood pressure comes down to where it should be and stays there. And now I'm off to check out the "Big Thing". Thanks for the recommendation. All the best, Bonny

That is a wonderful story and I like the way he writes. I hope Roger's blood pressure stays stable and you both have a nice day. Love the beautiful swans!

I know that BP fear when Terry's climbs for no apparent reason, though thankfully he does not have an issue with sodium. Thanks for sharing the link.

Thank you for the link to Sean. His writing is easy going and interesting. I'm going to look for his books.
