Weekend Coffee Share Fall Edition

Weekend Coffee Share – Fall Edition

If we were having coffee, I would have to offer you tea or suggest we make a Starbucks run. My wife is not fond of the smell of coffee, so I do not make it in the apartment. As for fall, we’ll be talking about both the season and the action. The season opens in the Blue Ridge Mountains with the leaves beginning to turn from green to vibrant reds, yellows and oranges. At first it is just a hint of color that appears, but slowly the fall hues spread across the mountains and down into the valleys. It is truly Weekend Coffee Share Fall Edition.

The other fall is my dad. He is a 92-year-old World War II veteran. He took a tumble the other day and broke his arm when he fell. He had to have surgery to put it all back together. He made through surgery fine. Doc says it will be 2-3 weeks before he can start rehab on the arm. I’m sure he will be fine. He’s a tough old bird. There are not many of our WWII vets left. If you know one or run across one in your travels, take a minute and thank them.

I’ve been busy. We went to Dallas for a couple of weeks to prepare for my belt test and to visit with family and friends. The test was a success. I made through with no serious injuries. Got to see several good friends get promoted. It was a great weekend. Saw some great sites on the way down and back. There will be post about some of that next week.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and don’t forget to stop by Parttime Monster and link in your own Weekend Coffee Share.

    You are definitely nice with your wife. I am ok with tea, as I don’t like coffee myself.
    I hope that your dad will recover quickly!
    You are so right when it comes to WWII veterans, I don’t even want to imagine what it would be like without the risks they took. My grandparents had a tough childhood growing up during and after the war in Germany.
    Eleven years ago I attended the 60th anniversary of the d-day landing and had the chance to talk with a veteran.
    Have a great weekend!

    What?! No smell of coffee brewing to wake everyone up? 🙂

    I sure hope your dad’s arm mends well. It’s tough for everyone to mend from a break. I can only imagine that it would be even tougher with age.

    I hope your Dad feels better soon. Surgeries at that age can be tricky. I wish him well, and blessings.
    Great job on your belt test. I always loved to watch the tests, when my daughter was in Taekwondo. She stopped due to an chronic condition, but had a great time practicing when she was able to.
    Have a wonderful week!

      Hi Claudia, thanks for dropping by and for the nice thoughts. Dad’s surgery was fine, now he just has to recover. I love the martial arts. It helps in so many aspects of one’s life.
