Carla's thoughts for the month

Now that it is October, I get to put out all my Halloween decorations.   I bring many of my pumpkins, scary cats and bats to the office. Hope you can come see!

This month I share my blog on "Why is it that sometimes we just feel like a grump" and my Book and Movie Recommendations.

 You will appreciate your day when you read "Tom Brokaw's thoughts on living with cancer."

Also, included this month are: 
  •  "There's a Golden Retriever in Chicago named Sporty Who Walks Himself."  This will make you smile.
  • "Congratulations Player One, Your Zombie Boss Didn't Fire You"
Happy Halloween!
"Trick or Treat"
