Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Weekend Guests

Each weekend this summer has brought guests to visit. I love this because it seems once the school year starts and winter sets in, we don't get to see many people. Fourth of July brought a dear family from NY and our girls. Then next weekend my NY daughter came out. The next weekend was my Boston daughter's girls' weekend – reunion of her college friends and this year NY daughter joined them with a friend. That was some weekend – 5 girls! The following weekend both daughters with friends from Boston joined us. The next weekend friends from my husband's work joined us for a dinner. The weekend after that two other families came out to rent near us and came for dinner. Last weekend my dad joined us for a wonderful weekend. Tonight my yogi book club is meeting on my beach. These are all wonderful, memorable, times to be kept and thought of on those gray winter days.

So – who's coming this weekend? This weekend's guest is not so welcome, but I'm sure it will be memorable. Hurricane Irene is supposed to grace our doorstep starting Saturday night. From all reports, Cape Cod is taking a pretty big hit. The news is likening it to Hurricane Bob in 1991. I was supposed to go to NY this weekend. We cancelled that, and my husband is coming out here tomorrow. If we do get damage to our house, we'd rather be here than stuck in NY. There's always the possibility that they won't let us back over the bridge if we leave.

I did my hurricane shopping – have enough water until Xmas – will put away everything that isn't nailed down, hubby is bringing plastic, staple gun, generator, chain saws, etc. I am in charge of batteries, candles, food, and lamp oil. The worst that can happen is a tree falling on the house. We don't have kids to worry about, so a few days without power is doable.

So, dear family and friends, we should be fine, please don't worry about us, and I will keep you informed as the weekend progresses, of how things are going with this weekend's guest.

And so, as another day goes by, I'm set to entertain girlfriend Irene, and ….I have written.
