Sunday, January 06, 2008

Wow, what happened to the snow overnight? I guess that's because of the very high 40's temp. It looks like a good day to take down outside lights. Won't blog too much because tomorrow is my 1st. anniversary on Sparks, stay tunned for my Sate of the Skeeter Address#1. Oh, I almost forgot,also more good news, I lost all that I had gained through the holidays this week, back down to 180, the lowest I want to go. Isn't Sparks the greatest? Ill see you in church?

    Dear Brother,
I am so proud of you I can't help but keep telling you! Glad the snow is leaving. It is in the 70's today & a welcome change. Also happy for you that you lost all your holiday gain. You did very well. Glad to hear you will not go any lower than 180.
Melvin & Sue got here yesterday so we are driving over this PM to see them.
Your Sis Anne

Dec. 30th. Baby it's cold outside!

Sunday, December 30, 2007

Us old farmers, when we have nothing else to complain about , discuss the weather. It is 10 above as I type this, what can I expect, it's winter in the mid-west. Getting ready to usher in the new year and forgetting to write 2008 on the checks. Will spend a quite evening with three of our close friends. Our most excitement is seeing if we can stay awake till midnight or celebrate 1 hour early with the east coast. It was a good year, feel reallllllllll good about it, sorta sad to see the good times go, but wait a second, they don't have to end, I'm going to stay positive and keep the good times rolling. And now about the bad news, I gained 4 lbs. this last two weeks. and I enjoyed every bite! It came on soo easy and it will come off! STAY POSITIVE! See you in church? Skeeter

    It was wonderful to see you over break, gramps!! I hope the wind isn't as nasty as it was when we were out there. I'm surprised that you didn't blow away--especially considering the amount of weight you have lost in the past year! We're all so proud of you =) Hopefully I'll talk to you soon. Please tell grams I said hi and I love you both!

A special gift at Christmas!

Thursday, December 27, 2007

Our four son's and wonderful family honored us and extended family and friends at a favorite restaurant of ours to celebrate 50 years of wedded bliss. I know all of you who know me are asking, how did she put up with a Skeeter all those years? What can I say , she's a GOOD WOMEN. Our #2 son has been putting many of our "OLD" slides and pictures on DVD's with music for the past year, it was a BIG labor of LOVE and was shown to the immediate family after dinner. I will add some new pictures of this on my Spark Page. I almost conveniently forgot to mention I gained 4 lbs. and I liked it. Did not have time to weigh and report officially while everyone was here but am getting right back in the saddle NOW! Stay tuned for my STATE OF SKEETER address. Happy New Year to all and my God Bless You and Yours. Skeeter

    Wow, 50 years. Congratulations! It's wonderful when you find someone you can put up with and actually love for that long. I've been with my husband for almost 17 years, married to him for almost 6 and I still look forward to seeing him every day. I only hope we have the stamina you did!

Christmas comes early for Skeeter Dec. 16th.

Sunday, December 16, 2007

What a great week, I found what I would classify a "Lexus" by my standards in my basement Tues. AM. a very slightly used , aren't they all, 2 year old Nordic track SL 710 exercise bike. One of my wonderful sons got tired of my winning and gave me his. What a beauty, almost too good for this ole duffer. Started out slow but already up to level 3, two and sometimes three 30 minutes sets a day. The time goes by soo fast, it keeps me busy watching all the gadgets and lights in front of me. Nothing else really matters this week, my son is happy, I'm happy, and my wife is happy, and you know when the wife is happy everyone is happy. OK now lets see how I handled all those Christmas cookies so far this week, well not too bad I lost another 1 lbs. See you in church? Skeeter

    Good for you brother, you are doing so great & happy for you. That bike came in handy & right at a very good time of the year. Exercise is very important & has been my salvation for a long time.
We are going to the Pines for breakfast at 10:30 AM with JIm,MaryAnne, John & Mary, Paul, Robin & Luc. Melvin & Sue were going but called & he said he had alot of snow to remove this morning.
At 4 PM we are going to church (St Anne's) to hear J. Morrisey (a tenor & very good ) sing & a reception for him afterwards.
Have a great week. Anne

The week in review, Dec.9th.

Sunday, December 09, 2007

Well do you want the good news first or the bad news? OK, have it my way then. I still stayed at 183 this week, not too bad with the devil out there tempting me. More bad news, the unthinkable happen, my stationary bike went to bike heaven. It didn't give up easy, it cried and made some terrible noise's heard through out the entire house. Up until last Jan. it lead such a peaceful life sitting there in the dusty old basement having it's own life holding many strings of Christmas lights. It could have lasted for ever but no that fat guy with the big butt had to wreck my life forever. The good news is my wife says Christmas is a coming and Santa just might put a new one under my tree. I thank Santa would do most anything to help keep me out of Grandma's space in the winter. Will I see you in church today or go Christmas caroling with us tonight? Have a good week and be kind to a bike. Skeeter
