Yankees are World Champs, Deal with it!

Congratulations to the NY Yankees as they won the World Series, beating the Philadelphia Phillies (sorry Mom!). I'm very tired today because I stayed up to see the end of the game and the post-game festivities. It was a great series with lots of good story lines.

Grandpa Update: Grandpa has been walking lots at physical therapy and the Physical Therapists think he is ready to go home. Now the medical staff has to come to that same conclusion so he can return to the Villages. There is talk that he may be able to go home as early as next week. Stay tuned!

Here are some photos that Tucker sent to us recently. Captions are under each photo.

This is the pumpkin patch where they went punkin' pickin'! Have you ever seen a more beautiful pumpkin patch!

This is the result of their hard work!

This is Allison and Tucker dressed up for the Halloween party. They went with a Grateful Dead theme. Allison is "Tangled Up In Blue" and Tucker is Casey Jones.

Sounds like he is having some fun.

Tomorrow night we are off to the RIT hockey game with Bob and Sally. And Saturday night we are having dinner at Sherri and Terry's house. Other than that I think we will rake some leaves and I will write report card comments.

Hope all is well.

This is It

If you have ever tapped your toe to a Michael Jackson song, or sung along with the Jackson Five, or tried to Moon Walk, you owe it to yourself to see This Is It, the movie made from the film shot during the rehearsals for Michal Jackson's London shows that never happened. We just got back from seeing it and if it weren't for the Yankees playing for the World Series title tonight, I'd have my Michael Jackson music playing.

The movie shows what Michael did best: sing and dance. For two hours, put aside any moral or ethical issues you may have with Michael Jackson, and sit back and enjoy this entertaining film. If you are curious how mega-shows like this come to be, you will enjoy the behind the scenes footage.

We loved the movie and would go to see it again!

Hope all is well.
