A very important event is going to take place in a couple of months, our first GS is going to get married. Now this is a big deal, it takes much planning and of course new clothes. We started this process some time ago, went to the big stores like Bergners etc. at least they had chairs to sit on, to finally a "dress shop only" store with no chairs. Kept trying on one after another until I finally told DW to narrow the field down some then call me, I went to find a place to sit. No chairs at all, went to front of store and sat on front window display. When people went by I struck a manikin pose, I might have looked a little out of place in the women's dress display. One neighbor merchant recognized me and knocked on the window. Then the call would come, honey come here, I need your help. please Zip me up in the back. Now there is no good way to report this but have you ever tried putting on a small glove when you wear a medium? I tell you these dress makers play games with the sizes, I finally had to ask the sales lady to try cause I thought I might tear it, she did get it zipped . Now the question, what do you think honey, do you like it? Now that is a loaded Question. I realized right then I might not live through this. I cautiously say I'm not sure I like all those ruffles around your belly. She answers, I just don't look good in Pastels, do you think? Yes, your probably right dear. Whew! Might have got by that one O K.
Come home, both tired, she comes down from the bedroom with this sharp looking hot pink number on, WOW. Do you think anyone will remember this from our son's wedding in KC over 7 years ago? I don't think so this one is in IN. She says I think it needs something don't you? Be careful how you answer Skeeter, I say it might be a touch too long, since you lost all that weight, sure glad I added that last part. Comes back down with those fake looking diamonds around neck and wrist they sure sparkle and I say, thinking about the $400 I would be saving, you look MARVELOUS. I meant it and she felt good in it. So it looks like I live to write another day. It will need to be shortened some but it is a winner. Now if any of you women out there recognize this dress from 7 years ago please say nothing, I will deny you heard it here.
What's this, I lost a lbs. this week, isn't life great. Have a wonderful week.

Some weeks are better than others, this was not one of them, too many deaths. A former classmate of ours Mother died, my last Aunt died and Jesus died on the cross. The good news is my Aunt put her faith in Jesus and Jesus arose to save us all from our sins.
Spring has to come soon my DW saw the first robin of the year and the snow birds are planning their return trip home.
Now back to the funeral, I have instructed all who will listen NOT, I repeat, NOT to let anyone get up and say things about me at my funeral, I can just hear them say what a nasty guy I was and go on and on and say and another thing . I need to put a stop to it right now.
Now with that out of the way I almost forgot to report I gained 1 lbs. this week, not bad for feeding at the food trough of two funerals and big meal last night with family at a favorite restaurant. Next week will get better.
Have a happy Easter everyone.

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.
