Passing thoughts

Sending thoughts of safe passage to those in the path of the Tropical Storm Isaac.

Sad to hear of the death of an American hero, Neil Armstrong. What a life he led!

It would be remiss of me not to mention the passing of another American icon, Phyllis Diller. Gosh , she was a funny woman, paving the way for other women to try their hand at comedy.

The last week of August is here, and I say, hurray! Joining many other bloggers in anticipating the arrival of Autumn.  Will be glad to have this summer passed.

Take care. Be good!

i am always happy to see summer end but never as much as this year. as hot as it was here yesterday, a breeze was blowing with a tinge of cool air to it. it energized me!

I'm doing a autumn dance. And hoping Neil travels in pretty painted autumn leaves.

Sad when heroic and iconic figures pass.

Hey Robin, I started "A Discovery of Witches" yesterday and I'm really enjoying it!

I'm thrilled that September is almost here. I'll never forget that day that Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. How amazing it was!

Such lovely thoughts for those who have passed over. And let us all rejoice as this miserably hot summer bids us ado.

You are such a dear heart.

I echo your thoughts for the passing of two great icons! And those in the path of any hurricane, may they be safe.

I too am wishing for Autumn. I always wish for Autumn, no matter if it is spring, summer or winter! May the Great Mother send all of us turning leaves and cool, blissful evenings!

I couldn't agree more about the end of summer! I also agree that it is indeed very sad about Neil Armstrong and Phyllis Diller. Remember her hubby "Fang?" SO funny!

I join you in wishing safety to those in the path of Issac.
