What a great week, sure glad I finally had that discussion with the weather goddes. Worked out in the yard cleaning up the mess of limbs the ice storm left us with. There was snow banks in them all winter. Had the 4 and 6 year old GK helping, they sure can pick up a lot of sticks and small branches.
Even had time to go shopping with the wife for a new purse for Easter. She laid the trap for me. She says so sweetly,honey which one of these do you like the best? So this one is bigger than a 3 gal. waste paper basket and the other is about 2 fists big. I thought before answering, which is unusual for me, finally I said the little one of course, it just fits your personality better. She liked it best too. Now for you young marrieds out there ,put this in your memory bank. Most women know you never buy a purse bigger than half their behind! I was being tested and I passed, wow, what a great feeling, otherwise I might not be here to celebrate number 51 years of marriage next year.
I hope everyone had a good week, God sure has blessed me.
Almost forgot the important part, I lost two lbs. this week, it looks like I'm going to make it through the worrisome winter OK.
Have a fantastic week and Happy Easter to everyone. Skeeter

Can I get real personal with you and "dirt dog honest'? I AM SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED OF THIS WINTER WEATHER! SNOW STOP! There that's done I feel better already. Now for the good news, I woke up again this morning with my wife beside me, that's always a good sign, Did not over sleep with the time change. We made it to church and the door was open, all good signs. Am going to GS 4th. [ my bad I had the old 3], birthday party this afternoon. Sure glad the family moved here from KC. It's nice to be next to family.
More bad news, I gained 2 lbs. this week, not to bad considering 2 buffet meals on Friday and Saturday.
Don't we have a blast, wait till next week.

This past week started off bad. On Mon. AM my BH was on her way to the Chiropractor for he 3 week appointment and slipped on our sidewalk and fell on her shoulder, nothing , thank goodness was broken, but a lot of pain, of course having trouble doing the necessary things one does with you right arm. If any luck she will make this last all summer.
I should have wrote this in the middle of the night doing what old men do at that hour when I had some real funny ideas.
Great two days and nights on a deserted island in the Cariabien, wait a minute I'm dreaming again.
This was a short week, with her suffering, can't let that get in the way of a car purchase, then we went babysitting with the cute 1+ and 3+ GK while Mom and Dad went the big race in Vegas. Now if that won't make you feel your age, with the BH bad pitching arm, nothing will.
This new Life style change is something, on weeks you think you abused your body you end up losing 3 lbs. Go figure. Isn't life the greatest.
Sold my old car to my son, sure hope the check is good.
And that's the life and times in the week of SKEETER .
Have a good week.

Thought I would let you in on the " rest of the story." We taught my future BIL a great lesson that night. He was NEVER late for a engagement again, When asked when he would be there would reply, " Sometime after?, fill in the time". He is quite a man. In his defense, he was the owner of an I-H dealership and had to serve the farmers when they needed him. That is why the business has survived since his father started it in the early 1930ths. Happy birthday to Sylvan too. Skeeter

This is such a great day, the Sun is coming up bright, the temp. in the teens, and a very special person in our life is celebrating her birthday. It doesn't seem that long ago we were dealing with her boyfriend's bad habit of always showing up late for her date. She decided , with my help, to show him a lesson. I was instructed not to go to the door when he arrived his customary one-half to 1 hour late. It was so hard not to help the poor kid out as he went to every window in the house and banged and looked in. But we had a bond, and I kept it. We still have that same feeling today, sometimes you can't explain it, It's just there. What a special sister I have, a very Happy Birthday Ann. A footnote to the story. That young wide eyed kid turned out to be one the best BIL's a person could ever ask for. He also celebrated his birthday this week. They will be celebrating over 55 years of wedded bliss this coming Nov. I think it's going to last. What a great week! Skeeter
