Nicholas Sparks

Monday, December 17, 2012

I know this not a health issue but it's driving me crazy......

A while back I was ordering a book..A Nicholas Sparks book, I read the promo and it was about a many who worked in an office, like Chicago or New York, he was donig great but got a call , it seems his father who owned a Christmas Tree business dies or needs help, he must leave but tell his friend he will be back ....does this sound like any book you have read if so can you please tell me the name, once again today I tried to find it but no luck...so now I'm wondering if I dreamed it or what....
I have read several of his book and would like to read this one if in fact it is a real book....

Life is going good...today I got rid of the goodies that have been hanging around and vowed no more treats till Christmas Day at my Dad's house.....lol

Cute story, went to my Dads Saturday and the Christmas container I left him the week before was empty and on the place he puts my containers after he has eaten the food.....I said Dad don't you want this cute Christmas box, he said NO, well maybe if you fill it back up with more cookies....lol... I brought it home and filled it up to return tomorrow..... funny growing up my Dad never ever ate sweets of any kind except apple pie and only if my Mother made it...now he eats cookies, muffins, cakes, candy almost everyday.....he seems to love bakery goods, he is 88 and on no medications, no real illness so I say go for what ever makes you happy Dad

Dad and his Lady friend....saying girl friend at 88 and she is 80 seems to funny...
hope I look that good at 80, heck I hope to life to 80+

    I have read almost if not all of his books, and I don't recall one like that. But, I have read a lot of books! If you find the title, let us know!

    Your dad is so cute! Great picture of him and his friend!

    Sorry, I don't know the book, but I'm so happy for your Dad's health and longevity at his age - what a blessing!

    Nice picture of your dad and his buddy! Not sure about the book, either because I don't read a whole lot. Can you research it online and see what turns up?

    Your dad and his friend look great for their ages!

    Kitt, I can't remember a book like that. I have read ALL of his books, but don't recall that one. That doesn't mean he didn't write one like that......he may have. I have all of his books and I will check to see what I can find out. Most of Sparks' book are staged in NC. I think "The Guardian" starts out at Christmas time, about a man that died and had arranged for his Christmas present to his wife be sent to her on Christmas Day and it was a dog.

    Nice photo...I would let him have whatever he wants to eat also. He looks great.

    What a cute couple and what a great way to get those goodies out of your house. I have made a plan for keeping goodies in check over the holidays this year, something I have never done before. I am aiming to keep my weight the same over the holidays but a loss would be so incredible, I just know it will bring me positivly into the New Year. Have a great holiday Kitt,

    Kitt, sorry I can't help you with the name of the book. I don't think I've ready any of his books, although I have thought about.

    I have quite a few Nicholas Sparks books on my KOBO, but I haven't read any of them so can't help you out there. If I remember I will ask the girl in my office, she's ready many of his books.

    wow, dad and his friend looked great.

    Kitt, I am so sorry that I cannot help you with the book. I had to laugh about your Dad. My Dad is 83 and all he wants is sweets and he is also in excellent health. Your Dad's lady friend looks like a picture of health. I hope I look that good at 80 and I will live to be that old!!! emoticon
