Could it be a ghost?

Could it be a ghost? I think that is what might have been going through Cats head this morning as she looked out the living room window. What she saw seem to scare her as she did not sit her normal amount of time but jumped down and ran to the bedroom. And just what are the ghoulish figures in the yard? They are bushes and plants that I hope and pray the frost does not kill. YES I said frost! When we got up this morning it was all over the ground and the temp was in the upper 20"s. Now I know that does not sound so bad to some of you that are experiencing sub zero but I live in FLORIDA, you know the Sunshine state. And that is not the end of the story... Saturday morning it might be in the teens,
Can you say Brrrr. Well not this old girl, I'm heading south in the morning to go to the Keys. We were just there at Thanksgiving but our daughter is having her BIG 4-0
and needs a little pep talk, you know things like "the 40's are the best years of your life", or "shucks wait till your my age" and of course, " you're just as old as you think", and best one, "it's just a number"!!!! She said it was going to be cold there to, in the 50's, I THINK I CAN HANDLE IT. I will be gone about a week, hope to have some good pictures when I get back. If you pack in a hurry you can go with me!

So much was happening in my 40's, it's kind of a blurr. But if I really thought about it, it was a very special time. Lots of changes.
