I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Love never dies.

Today its a year since my husband James left this earth,heaven bound. Im celebrating the life and the person that was James Taylor....lifetime club member,honorable,respected,loving man who will always be remembered by those who love him.
He will never be forgotten.
Thankyou James for showing me supreme love,for telling me to fly free and to never settle for less than what you gave me
I miss you with all my heart.
Love never dies. xxxxxxx

Good friends..

On saturday night we headed into Boston for some fun with friends.It was cold and so beautiful.The lights twinkled and the markets were warm.I had to get a new hat cos I forgot to take mine..The friends came from Pennsillvania,a long 6 hrs drive..They were wonderful and I enjoyed the weekend with them so much.
Its my friends that are getting me through this extremely hard week.Im crying a lot as I head towards the day that my James died a year ago.I look back with such sorrow and pain remembering the last week of his life.Im hurting..
But Im ok.If it wasnt forthe love of my friends I couldnt never survive this.They keep me afloat and they manage to even make me laugh.
Thankyou Lord for friends,for family and for love.

Life explained...

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

'Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone

who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life

span of twenty years.'

The dog said: 'That's a long time to be barking. How about

only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?'

So God agreed.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

'Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh.

For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span.'

The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years?

That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give

you back ten like the Dog did?'

And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said:

'You must go into the field with the farmer all day long

and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to

support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life

span of sixty years.'

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to

live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back

the other forty?'

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:

'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll

give you twenty years.'

But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give

me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the

monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that

makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep,

play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we

slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten

years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.

And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and

bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
