Plans: Veteran’s Day Parade, gotta study sometime
AM Prayer: Saturday, normally attributed to the fertility goddess, Saeter, we pray to Sibba/Sif, lighting a green candle (for fertility):
Sibba/Sif let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Meeka for a post-dawn walk.
At first I wasn’t going to go to the Veteran’s Day parade; just didn’t feel like it. Nonetheless, I pulled it together to go meet the guys at the starting point. I’m glad I went ahead to march with them because they are just a good little bunch of guys that I only get to see once a year at this time. There were only four Coasties that walked amongst all the rest of the massive groups. We held our heads high and finished the parade. The parade wasn’t that well attended until we got closer to the end of it where people had gathered. I hope that next year we finally have a bit better presentation rather than Coasites walking behind a Coast Guard banner. My thought is to get the 2nd Coast Guard window decal placed on and have a couple of magnetic signs on the Vue announcing us as the United States Coast Guard; then somehow rig up a sound system so as to play the Coast Guard anthem from the Vue as we ride and/or march. We just need something a bit more. This has been a good harvest of associates and possibly good friends!
Meatloaf and a tossed salad: YUMMERZ!
A short trip to the grocery store
Watched a bit of Wichita State Women’s Volleyball
Reviewed portfolio needs for Radiologic Positioning: lots of work to do
OMGs!!!!!!! I took Meeka outside in the front yard to do her business and she found a possum in the flowerbed! She was all over it so quickly! I went to get a shovel to discard it further down the road. About that time my neighbor comes home and I told him about the possum. About THAT time I heard Meeka (as she makes a certain sound when she attacks) all over the possum again as it was now by my neighbor’s house. Once again getting a shovel to take it farther out. While my neighbor and I continued talking Meeka was once again all over the possum! She was insatiable about killing that possum! I finally got her off the possum and home. She got a little nick above her eye. Right now I’m not highly concerned but I will call my Vet on Monday. My concern is rabies of some kind thru the possum even though Meeka has been vaccinated; I don’t want to press my luck.
MLS Playoff match http://www.mlssoccer.com/
Colorado 2:1 Columbus, aggregate 2:2, 5:4 penalty kicks, Colorado advances
Salt lake 1:1 Dallas, aggregate, 2:3 Dallas advances
Okay, things are looking better for my picks. Colorado and San Jose have both advanced. Later this evening, I hope Salt Lake advances and tomorrow Seattle will outlast LA to advance. My pick is for Salt Lake and Seattle to go to final and Salt Lake will retain/take the MLS Cup!
Well, Salt Lake didn’t cooperate: DAMN! Lemme readjust my pics…
“Fall back” on the time: I just wish we could leave it alone and not deal with the “spring forward/fall back” thing. It doesn’t really serve any purpose.
PM Prayer: Paltar/Baldr
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
