Hi to all,
Well, for me great news....the wedding is back on and my son and his beloved
worked out the problems they had...imagine this....the actually sat down and
discussed them over a big glass of iced tea........both spoke their mind and the
hearts, and they have compromised and agreed they love each other far too
much to allow minor things to separate them. Yahoooooooooooooo..............
Wisdom ...... finally.
I am seriously over joyed, for I love his fiancee' ...... she is so easy for me to get
along with and David loves her also. Can't hardly wait for November to get here.
Looking forward to this.
We got in a good ride this afternoon on the bikes, by the way. Had a great time.
As soon as the leaves really start too turn, we will go up to Little River Canyon
and take some pictures.

For those of you who read the other blog....re our ahhh birthday dinner,
I just wanted you to know that I did survive......L O L
It really did not go as off the track as I figured it would, as it had in the
past. I did keep a low profile, and did not say a whole lot, but they did
actually speak directly to me a couple of times.....and wonder of wonder,
his mother actually called him today and told him thank you for the birthday
present and what a good time she had and so on and so forth.
So, maybe it has sunk in for them that life is short, and their attitude toward
him needed to change. We shall wait and see. I hope so.
Anyway, we had a great time at church this morning, heard some powerful
songs, and had a great potluck after.............
Blessings ya'll, let's all have a great and productive week....

This will be short.....lol (ya'll know me-never use ten words when a hundred will do)
All ya'll keep your fingers crossed for us. This afternoon we are taking the MIL to
dinner for her birthday. Of course his sister and her husband will come too...they
gave the MIL the okay to invite us to come to dinner with them. Wasn't that sweet
For Davids' sake, I hope this does not go badly. His family(MIL & SIL) don't like me
at all, sad to say, but I refused to let them steamroller me when we first got married
and after his open heart surgery, objected when MIL wanted him to mow her lawn &
weedeat it in 108--110 degree heat....so I have been the kicking bag ever since.
Today is her 81st birthday, and I feel he should spend as much time as he wants to
with her, and I am always respectful of her, so hopefully this will go well.
Pray for us..........................I don't want him to be hurt. I can take it, but he hurts
because they are like this to me.

We went shopping today. Wanted to let David spend his birthday dollars...yahooooooo
So he dropped me off between Dicks Sporting Goods and Hobby Lobby, so I strolled in to
the Dress Barn just for a check up on whats new in fashion. I found two sweaters I just
loved. 2 problems. The color of one was a beautiful Eggplant, but it would have struck
me(short as I am)about belt level, showing everything in my pockets which just would not
work for me as some of you know the stuff I carry in my pockets..(LOL) On to the second
sweater, which was lovely, just so soft, and was in one color only - Grays.....which meant
I would have had to purchase gray jeans, which I might add were also available in the
The problem here???? was that I don't look good in grays...and I would have also had to
buy a black turtleneck with long sleeves.
The reason I didn't get it was the color. They had some beautiful clothes, just made too
short in shirt length. So I got nothing today....lol..........David did get the toy he was
wanting, so all is well in Gadsdenville..............................
I did find a great selection of tennis shoes in assorted colors, brands and so forth at
Dicks Sporting Goods. Next time I need shoes I am going back there.
Ok, enough about my day. All ya'll keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow. I am
getting bloodwork done and I am hoping the kidneys are getting better...I will know if
there is any change when I see the specialist next week.

Today is a day to remember those innocent people who were senselessly
murdered, and also, remember those first reponders, firemen, policemen,
a priest, who gave their lives trying to save others.
Remember the military personnel at the Pentagon who got it in the back,
so to speak, and all these people.........they had families who grieve and
many who never had closure.
I am not for hatred. I am for respecting others and their rights as they should
God Bless America, all her people, regardless race, creed, color or faith. Those
things really do not matter. What does matter, is, that we should stand united
against whomever comes against all of us or any of us who are American citizens.
Oh, by the way, I am flying my flag, as we always do. And no one should deface
God Bless America, God bless our military, wherever they are serving, and may
God bless the rest of us citizens, who love our country and our flag, and the
rights we are blessed to enjoy. And don't tread on our Constitution. Live by it.
Just my feelings today, along with immense sadness for those today who are missing
a loved one, or are dealing with consequences of September 11, 2001.
I don't think anyone will ever forget where they were on this day. I was working
and 3 of us were heading to another store, 50 miles from home, to help work their
inventory. We heard it on the radio in my truck.
