    I love yellow, black or brown labs. I also like the golden retrievers. I miss my Cowboy dog, he has been gone two years now, and I still have not gotten another dog. I am sticking with cats for awhile.

    That was wonderful. I will definitely want to see that movie. I had a yellow lab, Honeybear, for 14 yrs and lost her to cancer. I still love her so much and that was over 2 years ago.

Thank you for sharing.

no gas 4/15/2012

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I received this in an email today and decided to pass on.

Don't pump gas on April,15th 2012
KEEP SENDING THIS

I'll do it! If running low, just get your gas the day before on April 14 or the day after on April 16. Every little bit helps.
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.

On April 15th 2012, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.97 a gallon in most places.

If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on April 15th and let's try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.

    Yes, indeed he is risen!! I went to our Easter Vigil last night.....sat by my sis and her family; Dh and Mary did not want to go.....it was a 2 1/2 hour service, but it was soooooooo wonderful; we had new Catholics come into our faith, blessing of the water, lighting of candles to show Jesus' resurrection and mass! It truly was beautiful!!

Happy Easter, my friend!!

1st day back on the water...

Saturday, April 07, 2012

It was first day back on the water and 1.5 hours of it.

I do Dragon boating with an all blind/visully impaired team. It was a lovely day and warm and i was OVERDRESSED.

I was nervous. I had no winter training like the rest of them did.

MG has made my arms and trunk area weaker. I feel wiped out.

I got through the warmups great. However I was shaking. I thought it was from being nervious but my blood sugar ahd dipped. It was low. I ahke and get irritable and a total bitch when it gets low. I took 2 glucose tabs that i ahd in my pocket. I ahd only had 2 soft boiled eggs for breakfast.

Came time to get on the boat and david called my name said seat 9. I have to sit in the very back because of my short legs. I'm 4'11" I handed my bench mate my paddle and water bottle and went to sit down and lsot my balance an d fell forward knees getting banged up again on the cement dock. No bleeding though but my whole body ached.

I'm 55. Followed my Dr.'s orders. Know when to stop. Don't push myself. I would paddle 30 strokes and rest 30 strokes then paddle and rest. Being the first time on the boat I feel I did pretty good.

then i got off the boat. Still land. OMGoodness My balance really sucked. I needed to hold on to people for support. I wonder if I'm getting too old for this kind of ana ctivity.

Will I give up? No way. I'll take it as it comes.

    DEBS, it's nice you are back but do try to see if you are able to get Balance training at the hospital. It is being offered in many places. I took it a while back and they did give us some new ideas. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Our program was called 'It'S a matter of balance"
Every time we do to see the DR these days they ask us about balance issues and falls.
Take care and remember you are not as heavy as you were before so you have to get used to that. HUGS and I love you. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
HAPPY EASTER to you DEBS.
