IT WAS WET ON SATURDAY, SO SUNDAY WAS MY GARNDENING DAY. GOT A BUNCH OF STUFF DONE. PLANTED SOME SEEDS, WEEDED, HARVESTED A BIT OF PURSLANE. I EVEN COMPARED SOME TO PICTURES TO PROPERLY IDENTIFY IT. IT WAS PRETTY GOOD. MOST GREENS ARE "DRY" TO ME. PURLANE STEMS HOLD MOISTURE, NOT A WHITE SAP LIKE AN INVASIVE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT.

LECATES , A LOT OF PLACES UP HERE HAVE THE CAMERAS ON THE ENTRANCE DOORS. I GUESS IT IS FOR SAFETY PURPOSES, IT I DON'T WANT TO SEE SOMEONE I JUST DON'T OPEN THE DOOR, THE PEOPLE HAVE TO RING OUR APARTMENT TO GET INSIDE THE SECOND DOOR. I ANSWER THE PHONE AND THEN I OPEN THE DOOR BY PRESSING #6 ON MY PHONE. SO IF I DON'T WANT TO SEE THEM I DON'T ANSWER, AT LEAST THIS WAY I CAN SEE WHO IT IS BEFORE I ANSWER THE DOOR.. NEVER HAD ANY SURPRISES YET BUT YOU NEVER KNOW

BEAUTIFUL HERE AGAIN TODAY FOR A WHILE ANYWAY, GOING TO GET DRESSED AND TAKE KIRBY OUT, THEN I DON'T KNOW

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE AND THOSE WITH NICE WEATHER HOPE YOU ENJOY IT TO THE FULLEST

MORNING ALL ... WHAT A MORNING ...
WE HAD MORE emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
EARLY THIS MORNING ... YESTERDAY WAS THE SAME, BUT AT LEAST IT STOPPED AND SUN CAME OUT FOR A WHILE AND THE GRASS DRIED ENOUGH FOR SON TO MOW. I'M NOT SURE IF WE WILL HAVE ANY RAIN FREE DAYS FOR A WHILE. FLOODING HAS BEEN A PROBLEM IN OUR COUNTY, HOPE JOY ISN'T HAVING ANY ISSUES. WE ARE LUCKY ... SO FAR THE DRAINAGE IN OUR AREA IS GOOD.
CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT THE MOSQUITOES ARE DOING OUT BACK ... PROBABLY HAVING A PARTY CELEBRATING ALL THE NEW BABYS! LOL I'M READY TO GET SOME SORT OF BOMB AND LET IT OFF IN THE GARDEN TO GET RID OF THEM.

I BETTER GET ABOUT MY DAY ... HOPEFULLY WE ARE GOING TO A PLAY THIS EVENING ... HAVE TO SEE IF THERE ARE TICKETS AT THE DOOR OR IF I HAVE TO GET THEM AT OUR PLAYHOUSE. PLAY IS IN CONJUNCTION WITH OUR PERRY 200 CELEBRATION.

WILSON ... SURE HOPE YOU HAVE ENOUGH GOOD WEATHER TO REALLY ENJOY YOURSELF ...

BILL READ A JERRY BAKER BOOK & FOUND WHERE YOU MIX MOUTHWASH WITH WATER (1/2 EACH) PUT IN A SPRAY BOTTLE & SPRAY THE AREA YOU WANT BUGS OUT OF. hE SPRAYED IT ON THE BACK PORCH/DECK & WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY BUGS FOR OVER 2 DAYS. AFTER ABOUT 10 MIN YOU CAN'T EVEN SMELL THE MOUTH WASH EITHER. I DIDN'T THINK IT'D WORK BUT IT DOES & HAS FOR EVERYONE WE'VE PASSED IT ON TO. SO MUCH CHEAPER. AND IT EVEN WORKED ON THE ANTS.

BILL WENT TO CHURCH YESTERDAY & MET ANOTHER 70+ MAN TO HELP INSTALL A2 POLES FOR A NEW ELECTRIC SIGN. SEVERAL SIGNED UP BUT NO ONE ELSE CAME. IT WS REALLY HOT/HUMID. I CALLED THE PREACHER & HE SAID HE'D STOPPED BY THE CHURCH & TOLD THEM TO QUIT (THIS WAS AROUND 1 PM) & COME BACK AROUND 5 PM. I'D GOTTEN UP EARLY & FINISHED WEEDING THE FLOWER GARDEN ABOVE THE FISH POND. SO WHEN HE LEFT I BEGAN PULLING STUFF OUT OF A CLOSET (COATS/JACKETS) 7 THE UPPER KITCHEN CABINETS PLUS A STANDING CABINET. AFTER THAT iI PULLED 50 MOVIES FROM THE SHELVES IN THE BACK HALLWAY. THEN I CALLED A FRIEND TO COME & GET IT. SHE DID & BROUGHT ME A GNOME SITTING IN A SWING. THE ROPE WAS MISSING BUT THE GNOME WAS IN PERFECT SHAPE. BILL SAID HE'D REPLACE THE ROPE. I'VE WANTED ONE FOR A LONG TIME. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO GET RID OF STUFF BUT AS MOST OF THIS WAS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS IT'S GONE. TONIGHTS THE LAST NIGHT OF THE AUCTION UNTIL SEPT. I'M HOPEING WE CAN KNOCK THE CRAFT ROOM OUT FAIRLY QUICKLY. NOW THAT WE HAVE 2 PEOPLE TO PASS STUFF ON TO IT SHOULD BE EAASIER ON US THAN HAVING TO DEAL WITH THAT AS WELL.

BILL WENT TO GET GROCERIES. I TOLD HIM I'D DO IT & HE COULD DO THE BILLS THIS MONTH BUT HE SAID NO! WELL, I TRIED! LOL

WILSON, I HOPE YOU GET TO RELAX, YOU NEEDED TIME OFF. A LADY , AT CHURCH, DOES 4 WHEELING & USES A JEEP TO DO THAT CLIMBING THING. SHE SAYS IT'S GREAT FUN. THE VERY IDEA MAKES ME VERY SICK TO MY STOMACH. I JUST KNOW IF I WERE IN IT ---IT'S TURN OVER!

WE'VE GOT TOMATOES, CUCUMBERS, BEANS & PEPPERS FORMING ON THE PLANTS. AND LOTS OF BLOOMS ON THE GREEN BEANS. HOPING IT'LL ALL DO WELL.

BILL'S BACK FROM THE STORE SO WILL HELP HIM BRING IT ALL IN & PUT AWAY.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD & SAFE DAY!

THOUGHT I WOULD TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO SAY GOODNIGHT TO EVERYONE ... IT WAS A MOSTLY RAINY DAY HERE ... AND THAT IS WHAT WE CAN EXPECT THROUGH MONDAY. HOPING SON GETS OUR GRASS MOWED BEFORE THE RAIN STARTS TOMORROW!

HAD FUN WITH MOM YESTERDAY ... THE LADIES ARE NOW TALKING ABOUT HAVING A CRAFT FAIR FOR THE RESIDENTS IN THE FALL ... THEY WANT TO MAKE HATS TO SELL FOR NEW YARN IN SOME FRESH COLORS. MOST OF THE DONATED YARN IS BROWN, GREEN OR BLACK ...

WE WENT TO THE ELKS FOR ANOTHER EVENING OF DANCING LAST NIGHT ... WHAT A GREAT SINGER THE GUY THAT COMES IN TO SING AND PLAY ... A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE TAKEN A LITTLE BALLROOM DANCING SHOW UP AND IT'S SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH. WE DO A FEW LINE DANCES ... CUPID SHUFFLE, ELECTRIC SLIDE AND OTHER FAST DANCING, BUT DH LIKES SLOW DANCING THE BEST. WE ARE CONSIDERING TAKING BALLROOM LESSONS IN THE FALL ... IT WILL BE GREAT EXERCISE. I GOT IN ALMOST AN HOUR OF ZUMBA TYPE DANCING ... FELT GREAT BUT TIRED WHEN WE GOT HOME.

HOPE MY WEDS DON'T GET TOO BIG THE NEXT FEW DAYS ... HOPE SOMEONE IS HAVING SOME GOOD WEATHER!

I was wrestling with my son several weeks ago and heard my knee pop and getting up was super painful - so much for showing him how I could keep up with him. "I can't" So, after many weeks of doing different exercises to build my knee up again, I'm finally back to walking more but I'm afraid to do planks or jumping jacks.

The good news is I'm back to doing my extra walking outside and on dvds again - I had to go super slow the past few weeks and not do anything extra that involved knee bends - couldn't even get off the floor properly. However, I was able to lift weights and do situps/leg lifts like you do for yoga. emoticon

I wish we had a Y near us - I'd love to go swimming - it's the best exercises for us "older" folks. emoticon

Appreciate your feet and legs Everyone!

SO GLAD TO SEE YOU JOJO. WE HAVE BEEN MISSING YOU. TOOK MY NIECE TO GREENVILLE WITH ME YESTERDAY. WE SHOPPED UNTIL WE DROPPED. ATE LUNCH AT A PLACE CALLED PANARA BREAD. IT WAS EXPENSIVE BUT THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD. WE ALSO CME BACK TO KINSTON TO THE GROCERY STORE AND TO SWEET FROGS (A FROZEN YOGURT SHOP). NEEDLESS TO SAY, SHE BROKE MY PICKET BOOK. CAME BACK TO MY HOUSE AND DID SOME CRAFTING AND MADE CRDS FOR MY AUNT AND UNCLE. SHE IS SUCH A SWEETHEART.

POSTED EARLIER BUT LOT SERVICE AGAIN. STORMY OUT THERE AGAIN. AT LEAST WE HAD 2 NICE DAYS. AND THEY ARE SAYING NICE FOR THE WEEKEND. THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR OUR 4-WHEELING TRIP. GOT INSURANCE ON THE CAMPER TODAY BUT NOTICED THE GAS WAS NOT SHUT OFF LAST FALL SO NOW WE HAVE TO FILL THE PROPANE. $$$$$$$$$$$$.

LECATES THEY SAID THEY COULD HANDLE THE BLEEDING PUTTING IN THE PACEMAKER??? SHE SCRAPES HER ARM ON SOMETHING SHE LOOKS LIKE CHAINSAW MASSACRE. BUT THEY ARE THE EXPERTS AND MUST KNOW.

ROSES IT IS NOT JUST YOUR NIECE, IT IS ALL TEENAGERS THAT THINK THEY ARE SOOO GROWN UP AND KNOW EVERYTHING. LOL

LYNN I FEEL FOR YOU ON THE MOSQUITOES. THEY HAPPEN TO PREFER ME TO EVERYONE ELSE. IN A GROUP OF PEOPLE I WILL BE THE ONLY ONE GETTING CHEWED ALIVE. BRINGING LOTS OF SPRAY WITH 4-WHEELING. AFTER ALL THE RAIN WE HAVE HAD IT MIGHT GET PRETTY BAD IN THE WOODS.

MORNING EVERYONE .... LOOKS LIKE WE ARE PAST THE STORMS FOR A WHILE ... SUN IS OUT RIGHT NOW AND 71° ... DH IS OUT GOLFING AND I HAVE TO GET A FEW THINGS FROM THE STORE SO WILL MAKE THIS SHORT.

I WASN'T FEELING GREAT YESTERDAY ... MOSTLY TIRED ... SO I DIDN'T DO MUCH DURING THE DAY. GOT CAUGHT UP ON SOME THINGS I NEEDED TO DO FOR ONE OF THE RESIDENTS AT MOM'S PLACE ... HAD TO SEW/TIE ITEMS TO AN APRON ... MADE TWO STUFFED FELT HEARTS, ADDED LARGE POMPOMS, A COUPLE BELLS, SOME PLASTIC HOSE REPAIR PARTS, AND A THICK CURVED PLASTIC STRAW. ALL THINGS SHE CAN FIDDLE WITH.

I NOTICED A FEW LITTLE TOMATOES STARTING ON MY PLANTS ... GOT THEM TIED UP ON MONDAY ... ALSO GOT ANOTHER DAY LILY PLANTED. IT'S CALLED MacBETH AND IS A RE-BLOOMING VARIETY. WE ARE STILL HAVING A MOSQUITO PROBLEM OUT BACK ... I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE SPRAYED IN OUR AREA YET ... SURE WISH THEY WOULD DO THAT SOON ... NOTHING WE'VE DONE SEEMS TO HELP. I'LL HAVE TO CALL AGAIN TODAY TO SEE WHEN THEY WILL BE OUT OUR WAY.

DH JUST RETURNED .. RAINING ON THE GOLF COURSE ... POOR GUYS THEY GOT BACK TO SUNSHINE HERE!

BETTER GO GET SHOPPING DONE ... HAVE TO GO OVER TO MOMS FOR LOOM KNITTING THIS AFTERNOON.

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE

GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. IT IS SUNNY OUTSIDE THIS MORNING. GOING TO GREENVILLE TO MY DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT. MY NIECE IS GOING WITH ME AND WE ARE GOING TO EAT OUT. WE DON'T DO THIS MUCH ANY MORE. SHE IS GOING TO BE 13 IN DECEMBER AND GOING ON 21. SHE THINKS SHE IS GROWN UP BUT SHE HAS ALOT TO LEARN.

HAVE A GREAT DAY AND HAPPY GARDENING.

WILSON, THAT IS NOT GOOD---SURPRISED THEY DID NOT KEEP HIM---BUT THEN THEY ARE AFRAID OF IT THERE, TOO. YOU BE CAREFUL! HOW COME THEY DID NOT TAKE YOUR MOM OFF THE BLOOD THINNER WITH HER HAVING THE PACE MAKER?
JOY, OH, MY, BEARS IN THE BACKYARD IS NOT GOOD---WHAT WERE THEY LOOKING FOR?
HAD A NICE SURPRISE WHEN I WENT OUT TO WATER YESTERDAY---A CUCUMBER AND A TOMATO WERE GROWING BACK THERE. SURE HOPE THE SQUASH BLOSSOMS PRODUCE TOO.
HAVE A GOOD DAY---HOT AND HORRID IS THE WEATHER HERE!

DON'T KNOW WEATHER TO SAY GOOD MORNING OR GOOD NIGHT! JUST GOT BACK FROM YET ANOTHER TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL WITH MY DAD. HE HAS MERSA AGAIN. BIG SWOLLEN SORES THAT ARE NASTY. AND VERY CONTAGIOUS. SO TRY AND KEEP MY MOM AWAY FROM HIM AS I AM TAKING HER IN ON TUESDAY TO GET A PACEMAKER PUT IN. BUT AT LEAST WE DON'T HAVE TO MESS WITH HER COUMADIN. WHICH WOULD MEAN THE SHOTS TWICE A DAY FOR 2 WEEKS!

ROSES YOU STRESS TOO MUCH OVER YOUR EXAMS. WE ALL KNEW YOU WOULD ACE THEM. LOL

NANCY I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT NOT ENOUGH SLEEP. ASK YOUR DOC ID YOU CAN TAKE TYLONOL PM. IT DOES HELP. I USED TO BE ON AMBIEN BUT HAD TO QUIT BECAUSE I COULD NOT WAKE UP FOR THE EMERGENCY CALLS FROM MY FOLKS. THAT STUFF WILL KNOCK YOU OUT!

I DID GET 3 LOADS OUT ON THE LINE TODAY. CAN ONLY FIT ONE AT A TIME SO IT WAS A LOT OF BACK AND FORTH. IN FACT ALL THE BEDDING IS STILL OUT THERE. AND YES IT SMELLS SO MUCH BETTER THAN USING THE DRYER. UNLESS YOU LIVE NEXT DOOR TO A CATTLE FARM. LOL

I ALSO GOT ONE ROW WEEDED IN MY GARDEN. emoticon IT WAS BRUTAL BUT A START. THEN I MOWED AND USED THE LAWN SWEEP TO GET THE CLIPPING TO USE MULCH WHERE I WEEDED. ALSO DRUG IN 3 TREES THAT CAME DOWN WITH ALL THE STORMS WE HAVE HAD. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS REALLY EXHAUSTED BY THE TIME I GOT THE CALL TO RUN DOWN TO THE ER!

ANYWAY IT IS ALMOST 1 A.M. AND MY DAY STARTS AT 6 SO I BEST TRY AND GET SOME SLEEP. REALLY TO WOUND UP RIGHT NOW BUT GOTTA TRY. TALK AT YOU ALL TOMORROW.

HI EV, GOOD TO SEE YOU STILL HANGING IN HERE! HOPE THE PT IS REALLY HELPING YOU. ENJOY THOSE GRANDKIDS.....

WE ENDED UP HAVING A BIG CHEF SALAD AND ROLLS FOR DINNER. DH SAID HE WASN'T HUNGRY, AND I WASN'T EITHER, SO MIXED THAT UP AND IT WASN'T TOO BAD. MAYBE TOMORROW I'LL FIX SPAGHETTI OR SOMETHING SIMILAR.... HAVE A MEETING AT 6:30, BUT IF SOMETHING BETTER COMES ALONE, WON'T BREAK MY HEART TO MISS IT!!!

JUST HAD A GOOD STORM PASS THRU. LOTS OF LIGHTENING, BUT THE RAIN WAS WELCOME. TEMPS. AND HUMIDITY HAVE BOTH REALLY GONE DOWN. KIND OF A WELCOME RELIEF FOR A BIT. SHOULD MAKE GOOD SLEEPING WITH THE WINDOW OPEN,,

PEOPLE KITTY-CORNER FROM US TOLD US THERE WERE 2 BLACK BEARS IN THEIR BACK YARD THIS AFTERNOON. WISH THEY'D COME AROUND SO I COULD SEE THEM AND TAKE PICTURES....FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE! GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP A CLOSE EYE WHEN THE GKS ARE HERE FOR A WHILE.

THINK I'LL GO GRAB A PIECE OF emoticon . YUM YUM

So, JOY, WHAT'S FOR DINNER? I HAVE TO WATER TODAY---WAS HOPING IT WOULD RAIN LAST NIGHT BUT IT DIDN'T SO I REALLY NEED TO DO IT TODAY.
LYNN, QUITE THE PARTY ANIMAL---LOL--FUNNY ABOUT DH AND THE FAN---MY DH USUALLY WANTS IT ON AND I DON'T. ALTHOUGH WITH THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY HERE, HAVE TO HAVE AC AND THE FANS ON.
NANCY--HOW COME THE 4 HOURS? ARE YOU NAPPING TOO MUCH DURING THE DAY? OR MAYBE SOME OF YOUR MEDS ARE CAUSING IT---MAKE SURE TO ASK ABOUT THAT.
PENNY, IT SURE DID SOUND LIKE YOU 2 LET THE HEAT GET TO YOU THE OTHER DAY---BE CAREFUL OF THAT---SMART TO GET THINGS DONE EARLY
JOY, GOOD FOR YOU ON GETTING NEW TEVAS AND ON SALE TOO. I DO LIKE THAT FAN AT CHEDDARS.
MOM AND I WENT TO WALMART AND SAM'S CLUB TODAY---I HAD BEEN CLEANING AND WANTED A STORAGE BIN FOR MY CANDLES SO THAT IS WHAT I GOT AT WALMART---THEN MEATS AND OTHER ITEMS AT SAM'S. HAD LUNCH THERE.

HELLO EVERYONE..... BOY IS TODAY A LAZY DAY HERE. DREARY, MUGGY, JUST A GOOD DAY TO STAY IN THE AC AND VEG OUT.

BOY PENNY, YOU SURE HAVE BEEN BUSY!!! WHEW! I LOVE TO HANG LAUNDRY OUT TOO, BUT SINCE IT LOOKS AND FEELS LIKE RAIN, GUESS I WON'T.

HOW DID YOU MAKE OUT AT THE DRS. NANCY? HOPE ALL IS WELL.

ROSES, I KNEW YOU'D DO FINE ON YOUR EXAM!!! NEVER DOUBTED YOU AT ALL.... GLAD THE AUNT AND UNCLE ARE DOING WELL.

JUST ATE MY LUNCH, AND NOW I'M WATCHING "LONG ISLAND MEDIUM" SHE IS SUCH A HOOT! SOMEONE ON THE SHOW JUST CALLED HER "A LITTLE CREATURE WITH THE HAIR AND THE NAILS". LOL!

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE STORY IS WITH PUTTING # IN FRONT OF EVERYTHING? THINK THEY ARE CALLING THEM "HASH TAGS?" OR SOMETHING.

TRYING TO COME UP WITH AN IDEA FOR DINNER. SINCE I'M HERE FOR THE DAY, BETTER FIGURE OUT SOMETHING, AND FIX A MEAL FOR A CHANGE... THINKING DH MIGHT LIKE PASTA OF SOME KIND. HAVE TO GO OUT AND WATER SOME PLANTS TOO, JUST IN CASE IT DOESN'T RAIN.....

SINCE I WAS TIRED TO BEGIN WITH, THE WINE REALLY HIT ME! AND ALL I HAD WAS 2 SMALL GLASSES..... OH WELL..

KEEP COOL EVERYONE, AND HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW.... GOOD NIGHT....

HOT! HOT! HOT! ... 80° AND HUMID ... GUESS THAT ISN'T TOO BAD COMPARED TO SOME, BUT TO START THE DAY OUT THAT WAY DOESN'T LEAVE MUCH ROOM RECOVERY THROUGH THE DAY. LAST NIGHT IT ONLY GOT DOWN TO ABOUT 73, WE DON'T HAVE OUR AC IN THE BEDROOM YET AND DH HATES THE CEILING FAN. I'M COMFY UNTIL HE COMES IN ... THEN HE SHUTS IT OFF! THEN THE REST OF THE NIGHT IS A FAN BATTLE ... I TURN IT ON WHEN I MAKE A BATHROOM RUN ... HE SHUTS IT OFF WHEN HE MAKES HIS emoticon

ROSES ... THAT IS GOOD NEWS ABOUT HOUR AUNT AND UNCLE ... NOW GET YOUR HEAD FEELING TIP TOP AND YOU ARE ALL SET.

WILSON ... STILL AGREEING WITH JOY ... YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN AND MAKE A LIST OF THINGS YOUR DAD CAN TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF, AND THINGS YOU KNOW HE NEEDS HELP WITH ... GO OVER THAT LIST WITH HIM AND DON'T BUDGE ON ANYTHING THAT HE CAN DO FOR HIMSELF. OLDER PEOPLE NEED TO HELP THEMSELVES OUT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!!

LECATES ... I DON'T HAVE A VERY GOOD VANTAGE POINT FOR VIEWING THE MOON ... TOO MANY TREES AROUND. BY THE TIME IT GETS HIGH ENOUGH IN THE SKY IT ISN'T AS NICE ... I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE LOOKED IN THE EARLY AM ... MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN A GOOD VIEW THEN, BUT SLEEP WON OUT BOTH NIGHTS.

JOY ... WHAT SHOW ARE YOU ENTERING ... I NEVER GOT A COMPLETED LIST SO I'M NOT SURE IF I'M MISSING SOMETHING OR NOT ... IF YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE SCHEDULE SEND IT TO ME!

GOLF WAS SO MUCH FUN ON SATURDAY ... WE ONLY GOT 8 HOLES IN BEFORE THEY WERE KICKING US OFF THE COURSE FOR A TOURNAMENT ... WE KNEW ABOUT IT IN ADVANCE, BUT WASTED TOO MUCH TIME LOOKING FOR LOST BALLS. IT WAS A HOT DAY SO WE WERE SORT OF GLAD TO BE DONE. HAD DINNER WITH FRIENDS AT THEIR CAMP IN THE EVENING.

YESTERDAY WE WENT TO A SURPRISE 80TH B-DAY PARTY FOR A FRIEND ... HE WAS SO SURPRISED. HIS DAUGHTER HAD A FAMILY PICNIC THAT HE KNEW ABOUT ... BUT HAD NO IDEA SHE HAD INVITED SEVERAL OF HIS GOOD FRIENDS AND WAS EVEN MORE SURPRISED THAT HIS LADY FRIEND CAME IN FROM NY AND FL BUDDIES CAME IN FROM SOUTHERN PA TOO! WE HAD A GREAT AFTERNOON.

LOOKING FORWARD TO A HOPEFULLY NORMAL WEEK WITHOUT TOO MANY EXTRA EVENTS ... I AM EXHAUSTED FROM THE WEEKEND!

JOY, SO WHAT DID YOU DECIDE TO DO FOR THE SHOW? I FORGOT TO GO OUT AND LOOK AT THE MOON LAST NIGHT---I MEANT TO, TOO.
NANCY, HEAT WAVE HAS ALREADY STARTED HERE--DARN IT---AND NO RAIN SO FAR WHICH MEANS I HAVE TO WATER THE FLOWERS TODAY.
BABIED MY KNEE YESTERDAY AND IT DOES FEEL BETTER---GOING TO BE CAREFUL WITH IT TODAY, TOO---WEARING THE BRACE AND THAT HELPS.
HAVE A GOOD ONE!

I'M POUTING. WROTE A NICE LONG NOTE LAST NIGHT WHILE OUT ON THE PORCH IN MY SWING, AND IT'S NOT HERE..... emoticon

WILSON, CAN'T YOUR DAD POUR A BOWL OF CEREAL FOR HIM AND YOUR MOM IN THE MORNING? SEEMS TO ME IF HE CAN GO HUNTING AND WORK ON HIS CAR, HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT. YOU'RE THERE TO SEE THEY HAVE THEIR OTHER MEALS EVERY DAY. PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN GIRLFRIEND!!

WENT TO A GRADUATION OPEN HOUSE IN CLEVELAND TODAY. IT WAS SOOO HOT!
TURNED THE AC ON AS SOON AS WE GOT HOME BECAUSE IT WAS SO MUGGY IN HERE. IT HASN'T QUIT RUNNING YET!

WAS OUT ON THE PORCH AGAIN TONIGHT FOR A WHILE WITH THE CAMERA, SHOOTING MOON PICTURES. ANXIOUS TO DOWNLOAD THEM AND SEE WHAT I GOT.

GLAD YOUR AUNT AND UNCLE ARE GOING HOME, ROSES. YOUR AUNT IS GOING TO NEED MORE SURGERIES, ISN'T SHE? GOOD LUCK TO THEM BOTH.

I HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT DESIGN I WANT TO DO FOR A FLOWER SHOW. NONE OF THEM SOUND EXCITING TO ME, BUT I'LL HAVE TO FIND SOMETHING!

OOPS! I FORGOT TO DO SOMETHING EARLIER TONIGHT...BEST GO DO IT NOW! NIGHT!

GREAT NEWS!!! MY AUNT AND UNCLE ARE BEING DISCHARGED TOMORROW. THEY WILL BE GOING HOME TO RALEIGH.

MY HEAD IS STILL HURTING BUT WILL MAKE DO. ACTUALLY FOUND A PICTURE OF A SPRINKLER SYSTEM AND THAT PUT IT PERSPECTIVE FOR ME SO THAT I COULD UNDERSTAND IT. AM NOT GOING TO LOOK AT IT ANY MORE THIS AFTERNOON.

I TOOK A "CHILL PILL" AROUND 2:00 AND LAID DAOW AND TOOK A 2 HOUR NAP. IT DID ME SOME GOOD. WOKE UP THIS MORNING WITH NO HEADACHE SO FAR.

MY AUNT AND UNCLE ARE MAKING EXCELLENT PROGRESS. THEY ARE BEGINNING TO TALK ABOUT DISCHARGE PLANNING. DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY WILL BE GOING YET- TO A SKILLED FACILILTY OR TO THEIR HOME IN RALEIGH.

MOMMA IS DOING BETTER ALSO SINCE SHE IS BACK TO USING HER CPAP MACHINE AT NIGHT. SHE IS GETTING MORE ENERGY TO DO THE THINGS THAT SHE WANTS TO DO.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY AND HAPPY GARDENING.

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYBODY. IT IS COOL AND RAINY HERE TODAY. I CAN IMAGINE THAT DADDY HAS A GRIN ON HIS FACE AS THE WATERMELONS ARE GETTING WATER AT THE RIGHT TIME. KNOWING HIM, HE IS PROBABBLY TAKING A NAP. HEARD FROM MY AUNT AND UNCLE. THEY ARE DOING WELL AND MAKING SUPER PROGRESS. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAVE HAD A HEADACHE SINCE YESTERDAY WITH NO END IN SIGHT. I THINK I AM JUST WORRIED ABOUT THIS EXAM. HUBBY TOLD ME TO TAKE A CHILL PILL SO I DID AND SLEPT FOR 2 HOURS. MAYBE I NEEDED THAT.

I AGREE, NOT WASHING DISHES OR CLEANING UP IS A TRUE PERK!
WILSON, GUESS THEY WOULD GET BREAKFAST WHEN I WAS READY TO GIVE THEM BREAKFAST---AND IT WOULD PROBABLY BE EARLIER THAN THAT---LOL
ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE---BUT TOMORROW STARTS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STORY---MIGHT HAVE STORMS AND HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL BE BACK---AT LEAST IF RAIN I WON'T HAVE TO WATER SO THAT IS A GOOD POINT.
GOT MY WALK IN THE PARK THIS MORNING AND THEN CAME HOME AND HAVE DONE SOME CHORES---FINISHED CLEANING MY DESK, WASHED RUGS, CLEANED THE BATHROOM AND WASHED TUB AND FLOOR, STRIPPED BEDS AND WENT OUTSIDE WHILE THEY WERE SHADED AND TRIMMED UP THE DIANTHUS---BADLY IN NEED OF A HAIRCUT---LOL
DH NEEDS TO RUN BREAD UP TO CHURCH SINCE HE WON'T BE THERE AND THE PERSON TO LET HIM IN HAS NOT RETURNED PHONE CALL---BUMMER----IF THEY DON'T CALL BACK THEN THEY CAN COME HERE TOMORROW MORNING TO GET IT AS I AM NOT DELIVERING IT UP THERE----HATE HAVING TO WAIT ON OTHERS!
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Morning all. OPPS. GOT BACK EARLY FROM THE FOLKS. ON ACCOUNT OF THEY WANT BREAKFAST AT 7:30 INSTEAD OF 8. emoticon

WAS GOING TO SHOWER AND HEAD OUT FOR MY PAINT BUT IT IS SO FOGGY I THINK I WILL WAIT A WHILE. GOT SOME HOUSEWORK THAT NEEDS DOING I COULD CATCH UP ON WHILE WAITING FOR THE FOG TO LIFT.

NANCY THAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT EATING OUT. NO CLEAN UP!

LYNN IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR WEATHER IS MUCH BETTER THAN MINE. GOING TO BE LIKE THIS ALL WEEKEND AND THEN IN THE 80'S NEXT WEEK. MAYBE MY GARDEN WILL DRY UP ENOUGH SO I CAN WEED. WHY IS IT THAT NO MATTER THE WEATHER THOSE DARN WEEDS DO BETTER THE THE PLANTS YOU ARE TRYING TO GROW? LOL

WELL THAT SHOWER IS CALLING MY NAME (ALONG WITH THE DIRTY DISHES I WAS TOO TIRED TO DO LAST NIGHT) SO I BEST GET TO IT. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!

HI EVERYONE ... SOUNDS LIKE SUMMER IS GETTING INTO FULL SWING FOR MOST OF YOU. WEATHER HERE IS BEAUTIFUL ... SHOULD HIT 80° TODAY ... BUT THERE IS A NICE BREEZE SO FAR. PREDICTING POSSIBLE (30% CHANCE) SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS LATER ... BUT NOT SURE WE WILL SEE ANY OF THEM.

FUN DAY TODAY ... WE ARE GOING GOLFING WITH DAUGHTER AND SON. IT IS A FATHER'S DAY GIFT SO I HAVE TO PAY FOR MYSELF ... THEN DH IS TAKING US ALL OUT TO LUNCH! IT WILL BE FUN!

IF IT'S NOT TO HOT WHEN WE GET HOME I'LL WORK ON GARDEN SOME ... RIGHT NOW I BETTER GET OUT AND WATER MY TOMATOES!

HAVE FUN TODAY ...

GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY! HAVE A BUSY DAY ON TAP FOR TODAY. HAVE TO GO TO THE GROCERY STORE, DO SOME HOUSECLEANING, AND STUDY FOR MY MIDTERM.

MY AUNT AND UNCLE ARE DOING GREAT. THEY ARE COMING ALONG SLOWLY BUT SURELY. BOTH ARE ABLE TO TOLERATE PUREED FOOD NOW. AUNT LINDA IS DRINKING ALOT OF SMOOTHIES THAT MY COUSIN (HER SON) IS MAKING WITH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY AND HAPPY GARDENING.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A HOME COOKED MEAL, HOWEVER WHEN I DON'T FEEL LIKE COOKING I DO GO TO THE DINING ROOM OCCASIONALLY AND THE MEALS ARE NOT BAD. START WITH SOUP, THEN SALAD AND HOT MEAL,, THEN THEY ALWAYS HAVE A GOOD CHOICE OF DESSERTS, TEA COFFEE AND MILK, THEY ALSO HAVE SOFT DRINKS.. BEST PART IS I DON'T HAVE TO CLEAN UP OR DO DISHES emoticon

GOOD NIGHT ALL AND SLEEP TIGHT. HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING, SUPPOSED TO RAIN BUT THEN TOO IT WAS SUPPOSED TO RAIN TODAY BUT DIDN'T

HELLO TO ALL. I HAD A LONG POST EARLIER BUT LOST INTERNET JUST AS I WAS GOING TO SEND IT. STORMY WEATHER OR SOMETHING.

ANYWAY NANCY I AM GLAD THEY GIVE YOU SOMETHING FOR YOUR WORK. ARE THE MEALS ANY GOOD?

MY COUSIN CAME AND HELPED ME PAINT! NOW I AM OUT OF PAINT AND NEED TO GO TOMORROW AFTER THE FOLKS AND GET ANOTHER 5 GALLONS. DID I MENTION THAT I HATE PAINTING? AT LEAST IT GIVES ME A BREAK FROM MY DAD. LOL I FINALLY GOT IT THROUGH TO HIM THAT I NEED TO RENT THE PLACE IN ORDER TO AFFORD MY BILLS.

MY COUSIN IS COMING BACK AGAIN NEXT WEEKEND SO I CAN GO ON ANOTHER 4 WHEELING TRIP WITH MY SISTER. DON'T KNOW YET IF BF IS GOING OR NOT.

I HAVE TOMATOES COMING. THEY ARE IN POTS. THE REST OF MY GARDEN IS LOOKING PRETTY WATER LOGGED. I DID NOT DO THE RAISED ROWS THIS YEAR AND I SHOULD HAVE!

ROSES GLAD TO HEAR YOU AUNT AND UNCLE ARE DOING BETTER. THEY REALLY GOT LUCKY.

JOY THAT IS GREAT THAT YOUR MOM CAN FEEL USEFUL!

STORMING HERE AGAIN SO POST THIS BEFORE I LOSE IT AGAIN.

MAYBE IF YOU'D GO WITH MOM A TIME OR TWO, SHE'D START TO KNOW SOME OF THE PEOPLE AND YOU COULD ALWAYS NOT BE ABLE TO GO SOMETIME. HOPE SHE'LL GO AND ENJOY IT. MOM GOES DOWN AT LEAST 3 DAYS A WEEK, AND THEY ARE ONLY OPEN 4....lol

NANCY, I FORGOT CAPS ON MY LAST POST.... YOU CAN BEAT ME WITH A SWITCH FROM THE HEDGE.... GLAD THEY GIVE YOU SOMETHING, THAT THEY RECOGNIZE THE WORK IT TAKES.

WARM HERE TODAY, BUT NOT AS HOT AS I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO GET. OK BY ME.... NICE BREEZE TONIGHT.

BETTER GO UPSTAIRS AND TAKE CARE OF THE LAUNDRY I HAVE SORTED ON THE BED. HAVE A LOAD IN THE DRYER, AND ANOTHER IN THE WASHER TOO, SO SHOULD GO CHANGE THOSE AROUND.

I'M HUNGRY, BUT HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I WANT...SO GUESS I'LL HAVE NOTHING. MAYBE A PIECE OF STRING CHEESE....

THEY HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT WHAT MADE HIM BLACKOUT TO THE MOMENT. HE IS SAYING THAT HE FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. IF THAT BE THE CASE, HE DOESN'T NEED TO BE DRIVING.

HAVE BEEN STUDYING FOR MY MIDTERM THIS TUESDAY. THIS IS GOING TO BE A HARD ONE AS I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY EXPERIENCE DOING IT.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT AFTERNOON AND HAPPY GARDENING.

WE GOT THE GARDEN WEEDED THIS MORNING. NOW WE'RE WORKING ON A GRAVEL PATHWAY FROM THE GATE TO THE BACK. DOWN TO THE CHICKEN HOUSE. SURE GLAD THAT I DIDN'T ORDER 2 LOADS OF GRAVEL! THEN HUNG SOME DVDS IN THE GRAPES & BLACKBERRY BEDS. THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO KEEP THE BIRDS AWAY.

WORKED IN THE CRAFT ROOM YESTERDAY & GOT 2 FULL BAGS OF STUFF TO PITCH. BILL'S COMING AROUND TO THE EDEA OF PITCHING MORE.

IT'S IN THE 90' & THE HUMITITY IS REALLY HIGH.

WILSON, I LIKE THE PLAN. YOU'RE UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS. DIVIDE ALL THAT WORK. STRESS CAN REALLY HURT OR KILL YOU. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!

Lynn, Michael will be here part of every week all summer, so I'm sure we'll get in. Let me know when you're going over again.

Nancy, an unpaid gardener?? Bet it does look better. Watch those arms so you don't get infected.

Roses, glad your aunt and uncle are both improving. Wishing them the best...

Kathy, I don't even have my tomatos planted yet!! Hope to get them in today.

Gotta run....be back later.

GOOD MORNING ALL. HOPE YOU ARE ALL DOING WELL

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE TODAY ALTHOUGH THERE IS RAIN IN THE FORECAST THROUGH TO SUNDAY, I WILL TAKE THE SUN AS LONG AS IT WANTS TO STICK AROUND

EACH DAY THIS WEEK AS THE SUN HAS CHANGED POSITION I HAVE EITHER BEEN CUTTING DEAD BRANCHES FROM THE HEDGE IN FRONT OF THE RESIDENCE OR PULLING WEEDS, WHAT A MESS,, SHRUBS ARE ABOUR 2 FEET HIGH BUT WEEDS ARE ABOUT 4 FEET, AT LEAST PEOPLE CAN SEE THE SHRUBS NOW. I CANNOT DO ANY IN THE HOT SUN.
SOME OF THE HEDGES HAD SO MANY DEAD BRANCHES IT WAS FAR FROM BEING FUNNY, ASKED THE ADMINISTRATOR IF SHE WANTED THEM CUT AND SHE TOLD ME TO GO FOR IT, I TOLD HER IT WOULD GIVE THE NEW SHOOTS A CHANCE. I DON'T THINK THW WEEDS UNDERNEATH THEM HAD EVER BEEN PULLED.,, MY ARMS ON THE OTHERHAND LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH A WAR ZONE.

WELL TIME TO GET DRESSED AND GO OUT WITH KIRBY,, TAKE CARE ALL emoticon NANCY

LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE ... TEMPS TO REACH UPPER 70'S WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES! OTHER THAN A SLIGHT CHANCE OF T-STORMS THE NEXT 5 DAYS LOOK GREAT!

JOY ... GLAD YOU FOUND YOUR MOM ... AND IT IS GOOD THEY HAVE SOMETHING FOR HER TO DO AT THE SR. CENTER. THE CHANGE IN MOM SINCE WE STARTED THE LOOM KNITTING GROUP AT SAR IS WONDERFUL ... SHE BROUGHT THE KNITTING WITH HER FROM NIAGARA, AND IS SORT OF THE 'TO GO TO' PERSON FOR THE PROJECT. SHE LOVES IT ... NOT ONLY DOES SHE GO TO THAT GROUP, BUT SHE HAS STARTED TO PLAY CORN TOSS, AND A FEW OTHER ACTIVITIES AROUND THE PLACE. NOW IF I COULD ONLY GET HER TO GO TO THE SILVER SNEAKERS GROUP A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK IT WOULD BE GREAT!!!

WE HAD MORE FUN AT D'S YESTERDAY ... TOO BAD YOU COULDN'T JOIN US. SHE WAS ALL READY TO WORK WITH YOUR GS SO HE COULD CREATE SOMETHING OF HIS OWN.

ROSES ... THAT IS GOOD ABOUT YOUR AUNT AND UNCLE ... HOPE EVERYTHING KEEP GOING IN THE 'IMPROVING ' DIRECTION. DID THEY EVER FIGURE OUT WHAT CAUSED HIS BLACKOUT?

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE ...

MOM WAS DOWN AT THE SENIOR CENTER. I'D LIKE TO KISS THE GAL THAT HAS HER COMING DOWN THERE ABOUT 3 DAYS A WEEK, TO "WORK". SHE PUT MOM IN CHARGE OF COLLECTING THE MONEY FOR LUNCHES, AND I THINK IT'S GOOD FOR MOM TO BE OUT LIKE THAT, AND HOPEFULLY HAVING TO ACCOUNT FOR THE MONEY WILL HELP HER STAY A LITTLE SHARPER.

I'M HOME FROM MY DINNER, AND ED AND MIKE AND THE HOT ROD ARE GONE....WONDER WHERE THEY WENT....

I GET TIRED OF THAT KIND OF STUFF REALLY QUICK---SHE SHOULD HAVE WORN HER HEARING AIDS SO SHE COULD UNDERSTAND THE DOCTOR. PLEASE REMIND ME NOT TO DO THAT WHEN I GET OLD!

JUST WATCHING "THE CHEW" AND TRYING TO FIND SOME ENERGY. THINK IT ALL WENT AWAY DURING THE NIGHT. LOL

DRINKING AGAIN.....ICED TEA WITH LEMON THIS TIME AROUND. JUST HAD SOME LUNCH, AND AM TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO NEXT, DISHES OR FOLD CLOTHES. SHOULD TRY TO CON MICHAEL INTO DOING ONE OR THE OTHER...LOL

HAVE A DINNER TONIGHT AT SILVER SHORES. IT'S A CUTE RESTAURANT LOCATED RIGHT ON THE WATER AT CONNEAUT LAKE. LAST TIME WE WENT FOR DINNER THERE, IT WAS SO PEACEFUL LOOKING AT THE BOATS, ETC. HOPE TONIGHT IS AS NICE. I'M IN CHARGE, SO I'M NERVOUS, HOPING THE OTHER LADIES LIKE IT.

AM RUNNING THE DISHWASHER TODAY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AGES. HAVE MY FINGERS CROSSED THAT THE WATER HOLDS UP!

NO, LAST NIGHT LATE WAS THE FIRST TIME I SAW ANY FIREFLIES, SO EXPECT THE NEXT DAY OR TWO THERE WILL BE LOTS MORE. HAVE TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON WHEN I GET HOME TONIGHT.

STILL CAN'T REACH MOM. SURE HOPE SHE'S AT THE SR. CENTER. IF SHE ISN'T HOME SOON, I'LL CALL THERE. I NEED HER TO BABYSIT FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS TONIGHT. DH SAID HE'D BE HOME TONIGHT TO KEEP MICHAEL, AND THEN LAST NIGHT HE SAID HE'D FORGOTTEN HE HAS A MASSAGE TONIGHT. MEN...

CRACKER BARREL USED TO BE KAITY'S FAVORITE PLACE TO GO, NOT FOR THE MEALS, BUT BECAUSE SHE LOVED TO SIT IN THE ROCKING CHAIRS AT THE CHECKER BOARD. I'M SURPRISED AT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD STOP AND PLAY A GAME WITH HER, OR EVEN JUST MAKE A FEW MOVES.... SHE THOUGHT THE PLACE WAS CALLED THE CHECKER BARREL.

THINK I'LL TRY TO GET MOM AGAIN. WILL TRY TO GET BACK LATER AFTER THE DINNER.

HAD A GOOD DAY. MEETING IN THE RED BANDANNA WINERY - GOOD STUFF! CUTE PLACE. WE HAD OUR LUNCH AND MEETING OUT ON THE PATIO. LOTS OF FUN TOO BOOT.

DGS IS HERE, AND HE'S OUTSIDE. THINK HE'S AFRAID I'M GOING TO TELL HIM TO GET READY FOR BED, AND HE'S RIGHT! GIVE HIM A FEW MIN. AND CALL HIM IN. I'M READY TO GO MYSELF!

HOPE YOU CAN FIND AN EQUITABLE SOLUTION FOR YOUR PROBLEM WITH YOUR PARENTS, AUNT, SISTERS AND NIECE WILSON, BEFORE YOU DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH....

HAVE TO CALL THE THEATER IN THE MORNING, AND FIND OUT WHERE I CAN GET TICKETS FOR NEXT SATURDAY NIGHT. HOPE THERE ARE SOME LEFT....

I NEED A DRINK......OF WATER, THAT IS. THINK I'LL GO GET A GLASS AND CALL MIKE IN. HAVE A GREAT NIGHT'S SLEEP, AND A WONDERFUL DAY TOMORROW.

HI ALL ... BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE IN ERIELAND ... FRIEND CAME OVER TO DO A COUPLE OF LOADS OF LAUNDRY THIS MORNING WHILE OUR GUYS GOLFED. THEY ARE FROM PITTSBURGH, SPEND WINTERS IN FL AND HAVE A CAMP THEY STAY AT AROUND HERE IN THE SUMMER. ONLY PLANNED FOR ABOUT 5 DAYS AND HAVE BEEN HERE 2 WEEKS ... DECIDED DOING LAUNDRY WAS A NECESSITY!

JOY ... REMEMBER TO TELL GS THAT HE GETS TO PLAY WITH CLAY ... IT WILL HAVE TO DRY BEFORE IT CAN BE FIRED AND THEN WILL NEED TO BE COATED ... MAYBE THE NEXT TIME HE IS UP HE CAN GLAZE IT.

TODAY WAS MY AFTERNOON AT MOM'S PLACE HELPING WITH THE LOOM HATS. THEY HAVE MADE A 20 GALLON CONTAINER FULL OF HATS SO FAR. WILL PROBABLY KNIT FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER AND DONATE THEM TO A FEW DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE FALL ... JUST IN TIME FOR THE COLDER WEATHER TO SET IN.

WILSON ... I WORRY!!! JOY HAD A GREAT IDEA ... OFFER 2 SCHEDULES ... THE ONE WEEK AT A TIME SCHEDULE ... AND THE FEW DAYS AT A TIME SCHEDULE ... LET THEM PICK ONE!!! MY FRIENDS DAUGHTERS JUST ROTATED ... EVERY THIRD DAY, SO THAT IS ANOTHER OPTION TO CONSIDER. I ALWAYS LOVED PAINTING ... IT ISN'T AS EASY AS IT WAS 10/15 YEARS AGO ... BUT I STILL DON'T MIND. HUBBY WANTS TO PAINT OUTSIDE WINDOWS AND TRIM ON THE HOUSE ... THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED 10 YEARS AGO SO I AM VERY RELUCTANT ... SURE WISH HE WOULD JUST BITE THE BULLET AND GET THE REPLACEMENTS ... IT WOULD BE SUCH AN ENERGY SAVER NOT TO MENTION THE TIME AND PHYSICAL LABOR WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH!

HE WON'T ASK THE KIDS FOR HELP!

ROSES ... GOOD NEWS ABOUT YOUR MOM ... AND MAYBE NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR AUNT AND UNCLE. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR MIDTERMS.

WENT WITH MOMMA TO THE DOCTOR THIS MORNING. EVERYTHING CHECKED OUT PRETTY GOOD. SHE DOES HAVE SLEEP APNEA AND A WEIGHT PROBLEM BUT OTHER THAN THAT SHE IS FINE. WHAT A RELIEF. SHE HAS TO WEAR HER CPAP AT NIGHT, EAT LOTS OF VEGETABLES, AND GET HER PROTEIN IN. WE WENT TO WALMART TO GET SOME DISTILLED WATER FOR HER CPAP MACHINE AS WELL AS A FEW GROCERIES. CAME HOME AND UNLOADED AND ATE A LATE LUNCH THEN STARTED STUDYING FOR MY MIDTERM. HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT MY AUNT AND UNCLE TODAY.

I HAVE TAKEN EVERYTHING OFF THE PORCH, SWEPT REALLY GOOD AND THEN WASHED THE FLOOR IN THERE---NEXT I WILL WIPE DOWN EACH PIECE OF FURNITURE BEFORE I BRING IT BACK IN---AND DH LOADED UP THE CHAISE IN HIS PICK-UP TO TAKE TO MICHAEL'S---I HAVE SEEN A BENCH AT WALMART I WOULD PREFER TO HAVE IN THERE---THE CATS LIKE TO DIG ON THE CHAISE AND MAKE A ROYAL MESS WITH IT SO I AM GLAD TO GET RID OF IT---I ONLY PAID 10 FOR IT---BOUGHT IT OFF SOMEONE WHO WAS MOVING AND HER CATS HAD ALSO DONE THE SAME THING.

MORNING EVERYONE. JUST A QUICK STOP BEFORE I TAKE DAD TO SUPERIOR VA CLINIC. THEN I AM BACK TO PAINTING.

7 HOURS PAINTING YESTERDAY. AND YES IT IS WHITE WHITE. EGGSHELL SO NOT TOO SHINY. I HAVE NOT EVEN STARTED ON THE CEILINGS YET BUT JUST THE LIVING ROOM AND DINING ROOM WALLS DONE MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. THIS IS THE 1ST TIME I HAVE PAINTED UP THERE SINCE I BUILT IT SO IT REALLY NEEDED IT.

MY COUSIN JUST CALLED TO SEE HOW HER MOM WAS DOING. SAID SHE IS COMING TO TOWN TOMORROW FOR JUST ONE DAY BUT WOULD BE GLAD TO HELP ME PAINT. SHE SAYS SHE ENJOYS PAINTING. I SAID GOOD BECAUSE I AM A SLOPPY PAINTER AND WAS DREADING DOING THE KICHEN. THE CABINETS WOULD BE A REAL MESS.

JOY HAVE FUN AT THE WINERY! GLAD YOU ENJOYED THE MEETING AND IT SOUND LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DID TOO.

LECATES I REMEMBER TAKING MY KIDS TO A MOVIE WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE. MY YOUNGEST WAS AFRAID AND SAT ON MY LAP THE WHOLE TIME. LOL THAT WAS A WHILE AGO.

THE WEATHER MAN HAS PUSHED OUR RAIN BACK FOR LATER TODAY INSTEAD OF ALL DAY SO I AM HOPING IT WAITS UNTIL AFTER DARK.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

WILSON, IT IS ALRIGHT---YOU NEED SOME OUTLET FOR YOUR FRUSTRATION---AND JOY'S IDEA IS A GOOD ONE---THEY DO NEED TO HELP OUT MORE OR START CHIPPING IN TO PAY FOR OUTSIDE HELP---MOST DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT---GUESS BECAUSE YOU LIVE CLOSER YOU ARE THE ONE THEY EXPECTED TO DO IT ALL BUT THAT IS NOT FAIR. THAT IS ONE REASON WHY I AM GLAD THAT I CAN HELP MY MOM OUT BUT ALSO THAT SHE IS WELL ENOUGH TO GO HOME ON WEEKENDS SO THAT MY SISTER AND I BOTH SHARE THE LOAD AND SHE IS NOT HALF THE PROBLEM YOUR PARENTS ARE AND YOU REALLY NEED TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN ABOUT THE ADDED PERSON TO YOUR WORK LOAD.
JOY, SOUNDS LIKE THEY DID A GOOD JOB AND GREAT THAT THEY TOOK YOUR SUGGESTIONS TO HEART---MAYBE YOU WILL HAVE SOME COMPETITION AT THE SHOWS---LOL---ENJOY THE WINERY AND DINNER OUT TODAY. ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE MICHAEL TO SEE MONSTERS UNIVERSITY? THAT IS COMING OUT ON FRIDAY---I AM THINKING OF TRYING REAGANN AT THE MOVIES WITH THIS ONE---I THINK SHE IS OLD ENOUGH FOR IT AND WAS GOOD AT THE 2 PLAYS I TOOK HER TOO.
DON'T MIND ALL THE RAIN WE HAD YESTERDAY AS IT BROUGHT SOME LOVELY COOLER WEATHER WITH IT---SO THE AC IS OFF AND THE WINDOWS ARE OPEN---NEED TO CHECK ON THE FLOWERS AND VEGGIES TODAY AND MAKE SURE THEY DID NOT GET FLOODED OUT. HAVE A GOOD ONE!

WILSON, FIGURE OUT A SCHEDULE FOR THE 3 OF YOU, EITHER 2 DAYS A WEEK APIECE, OR A WEEK AT A TIME, HAND IT TO YOUR SISTERS, AND TELL THEM YOU WILL SHOW UP ON YOUR SCHEDULED DAYS. AND STICK TO IT!!! HOPE YOU CAN GET SOMETHING FIGURED OUT BEFORE YOU END UP KILLING YOURSELF.

NICE HERE TODAY, AND SUPPOSED TO BE NICE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS, EXCEPT FOR THE TEMPS. IN THE MID-80'S, WHICH MEANS HUMIDITY...OH WELL.

WENT TO A FUN MEETING TODAY. I'D MET WITH THESE LADIES LAST MONTH, AND SHOWED THEM ALL HOW TO DO A BASIC, SIMPLE DESIGN. THEN THIS MONTH, THEY WERE TO DO ONE, AND BRING IT, AND I WAS GOING TO CRITIQUE IT. I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT THE NUMBER THAT DID DO ONE! AND SOME OF THEM REALLY SURPRISED ME AT HOW GOOD THEY HAD DONE. AND THEY ACCEPTED WHAT I SAID, AND ASKED QUESTIONS. I MOVED THINGS AROUND IN THEM, AND SHOWED DIFFERENT THINGS THEY COULD DO, OR HOW MOVING ONE FLOWER WOULD MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE, AND THEY PICKED UP ON IT RIGHT AWAY. IT WAS FUN....

MEETING TOMORROW IN A WINERY. I'M NOT DRIVING, SO I THINK SOME TASTING WILL BE IN ORDER....LOL THEN TOMORROW NIGHT, I HAVE A DINNER TO GO TO. NEED TO GET GAS SOMETIME TOO. THEN I THINK I'M GOING TO GO PLAY WITH CLAY WITH LYNN ON THURSDAY...UNLESS MICHAEL OBJECTS TOO MUCH ABOUT GOING. THINKING ABOUT TAKING HIM TO THE MOVIES FRIDAY, BUT GOING TO WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE WEATHER HAS TO OFFER.

ARE YOU GETTING BRIGHT WHITE WILSON, OR A SOFTER, CREAMY WHITE. MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE "WARMTH" OF THE WALLS.

BETTER GET AND PRINT THE MINUTES FOR THE MEETING TOMORROW, AND MAKE SURE I HAVE EVERYTHING..... WILL TRY TO POP IN TOMORROW NIGHT, BUT NO PROMISES...

MORNING ALL. LOOKS TO BE A NICE SUNNY DAY. THEY ARE SAYING RAIN FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK SO I HAVE TO ENJOY TODAY!

I DID GO DOWN TO MY SISTERS HOUSE LAST NIGHT. STAYED FOR A COUPLE HOURS UNTIL SHE GOT CRABBY WITH ME. GOT NOTHING SETTLED ABOUT THE FOLKS. CAME HOME AND FIGURED IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME. AND BY THE WAY SHE DID NOT DO 6 DAYS IN A ROW. SHE DID 2 DAYS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND 4 IN A ROW NOW. BUT SHE COULD NOT DO MOM'S DR TRIP SO I HAD TO DO THAT YESTERDAY. MY OTHER SISTER GOT HOME LAST NIGHT TOO AND SHE SAID SHE WOULD TAKE A FEW DAYS TO GIVE ME A BREAK. I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY THINK THEY ARE DOING ME A FAVOR. IT IS THEIR PARENTS TOO! I AM THE YOUNGEST SO HOW DID I GET ALL THE RESPONSABILITY? YIKES! I HAVE TURNED INTO A CRONIC COMPLAINER! LOL

I AM THINKING ABOUT HEADING TO MENARDS FOR PAINT FOR THE APARTMENT TODAY. WITH RAIN THE REST OF THE WEEK WHY NOT PAINT. AND SORRY LADIES THE PAINT WILL BE WHITE. LOL WHITE GOES WITH ANYTHING.

EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT DAY AND HAPPY GARDENING TO THOSE THAT HAVE GOOD WEATHER. SORRY TO THOSE OF YOU HAVING THE THUNDER BOOMERS.

HAVE CLASS THIS MORNING. MY AUNT IS DOING GREAT BUT MY UNCLE HAS DEVELOPED LOCKED BOWELS. DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO ABOUT THAT YET. THEY PUMPED HIS STOMACH OUT YESTERDAY BUT DON'T KNOW ANYTHING NEW YET.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY AND HAPPY GARDENING.

It WAS A LITTLE STRANGE LOOKING UNTIL THE FLOWERS STARTED BLOOMING emoticon SO I HAD TO ASK SHARJO WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH IT---NOW WHAT DO I DO AFTER IT STOPS BLOOMING? DOES IT BREAK OFF OR WHAT? WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET MORE RAIN HERE TODAY AND I HAVE REAGANN ALL DAY---WAS HOPING WE COULD PLAY OUTSIDE FOR A BIT BUT IT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD FOR THAT.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD DAY!

OK, WHO SENT THE THUNDER-BOOMERS HERE? BEEN SOME PRETTY GOOD BOOMS AND FLASHES IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES, PLUS LOTS OF RAIN....AGAIN.

HAVE A MEETING THIS WEEK, AND CAN'T, FOR LOVE NOR MONEY, REMEMBER IF IT'S WED.OR THURS. THE DATE AND THE TIME HAVE BEEN CHANGED BACK AND FORTH SEVERAL TIMES. GUESS I'D BETTER FIND OUT FOR SURE.....SHEEZE.... WHICH MEANS, LYNN, IT IT'S THURSDAY, I WON'T BE IN TO PLAY WITH THE CLAY AGAIN. LET YOU KNOW. HAVE ONE TOMORROW AT HOSS'S, SO MIGHT SLIP OVER TO YOUR HOUSE WHEN IT'S OVER.

I HATE DOING MINIATURES...JUST SO YOU KNOW LYNN AND LECATES....LOL

MUST HAVE BEEN A BAD ACCIDENT HERE IN TOWN. SCANNER IS GOING CRAZY. THINK IT WAS AT THE INTERSECTION BY MICKEY DEE'S.

WILSON, YOUR SISTER CAN'T TAKE IT AFTER 6 DAYS, BUT YOU ARE EXPECTED TO DO IT DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY??? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR ALL OF YOU TO SIT DOWN, AND FIGURE OUT WHAT HAS TO BE DONE, IF IT'S HIRE SOMEONE FOR SEVERAL DAYS A WEEK, A NURSING HOME, OR WHAT. YOU'RE GOING TO KILL YOURSELF, AND YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR OWN LIFE TOO. TO ME, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR WHOLE FAMILY IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOU, BIG TIME, YOUR DAD THE WORST OF ALL. AND IF THE NIECE IS STAYING AT YOUR FOLKS, EATING THERE, ETC, YOU SHOULDN''T HAVE TO GO EVERY DAY, ALL DAY, AND THE $500 SHOULD BE YOURS. LET YOUR DAD PAY HER. THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP EASE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. AND YES, STRESS CAN PILE THE POUNDS ON FAST, AND THEY ARE HARD TO LOSE. WISH I WAS CLOSER....DON'T KNOW IF I'D HUG YOU FOR ALL YOU DO, OR SHAKE YOU FOR DOING ALL YOU DO! LOL TIME FOR A FAMILY MEETING THO, WHEN BOTH SISTERS ARE HOME, AND LET THEM KNOW YOU'RE DONE BEING A DOORMAT. GOOD LUCK!!

ROSES, GLAD YOUR AUNT AND UNCLE ARE STILL DOING OK. WISHING YOUR AUNT LUCK ON ALL HER FUTURE SURGERIES.

LECATES, I HAD A HEN AND CHICKS BLOOM A FEW YEARS AGO, AND I COULDN'T HELP BUT LAUGH EVERY TIME I WALKED PAST THE DURN THING. FLOWERS WERE PRETTY ENOUGH, BUT THAT "OTHER" THING.....LOL

DISCOVERED SOME PRETTY PURPLE FLOWERS BLOOMING IN MY WILDFLOWER GARDEN TONIGHT. HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE...

THINK I'LL CHECK THE REST OF MY MAILS, AND GO TO BED. HAVE TO GET UP EARLIER TOMORROW THAN I DID TODAY. I HATE MORNINGS.....LOL

LECATES ... THE TAPESTRY DESIGN IS THE ONE IN THE PICTURE FRAME MADE OF FRESH AND DRIED PLANT MATERIAL... I POSTED IT BEFORE THE CLAY PIECES. ACTUALLY THE ONLY DRIED MATERIAL IN IT IS THE SEED FRONDS FROM A FERN PLANT ... EVERYTHING ELSE WAS LIVE ... LIMONIUM BOTH STATICE AND CASPIA; DWARF CYPRESS AND I THE BACKGROUND THAT WAS MADE BY WEAVING STELLA D'ORO LEAVES.

IT WAS SOMETHING I HAVEN'T DONE FOR SHOWS ON A NORMAL SCALE ... SO DOING IT IN MINIATURE WAS REALLY A CHALLENGE ... FIGURING OUT THE MECHANICS (AND HOW TO HIDE THEM) WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART.

SPENT 3 HOURS OUT WORKING IN THE GARDEN THIS AFTERNOON ... AMAZES ME HOW MUCH MORE I HAD TO SHOW FOR TIME SPENT ABOUT 10/15 YEARS AGO ... NOW I JUST GET TOO TIRED TO KEEP IT UP. STILL, IT IS GREAT EXERCISE!!! THINK I'LL BE RESTING THE REST OF THE EVENING ...

WILSON, HOW COME YOUR SISTER HAS A SAY IN WHERE THE AUNT STAYS---NOT LIKE SHE IS REALLY SHARING THE LOAD WITH YOUR PARENTS EQUALLY---AND YOU NEED TO TELL THAT COUSIN THAT 500 DOES NOT COVER A MONTH---MAYBE 2 WEEKS BUT NOT A MONTH---SHE WOULD PAY A LOT MORE IF SHE IS IN NURSING HOME---ACTUALLY, MEDICARE WOULD PAY A LOT OF IT AND WON'T AT THEIR HOUSE---I KNOW YOUR DAD AND MOM NEEDS HELP, BUT THERE IS A LIMIT TO HOW MUCH YOU CAN DO AND YOUR HEALTH IS NOW SUFFERING AND YOU WILL END UP IN WORSE SHAPE THAN THEM IF YOU DON'T GET SOME HELP! BUT MIXING PAIN MEDS AND BEER IS NOT A GOOD WAY TO HANDLE IT!
LYNN, LOVED THE PICTURES---BUT HOW ABOUT ONE OF YOUR TAPESTRY?
JOY, NO, I ACTUALLY COOKED SOMETHING SIMPLE BUT HE WAS HAPPY WITH THAT--AND MICHAEL AND TAYLAR DID STOP BY FOR A SHORT VISIT.
MY AVATAR IS OF MY HENS AND CHICKS IN BLOOM---SOMETHING THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN ALL THAT OFTEN WITH THEM ACCORDING TO SHARJO---PRETTY COOL!
WATER AEROBICS IN A BIT---I HAVE DEFROSTED MY FREEZER TODAY AND DID MY BOOKCASE AND FINISHED UP THE CHINA HUTCH IN THE DINING ROOM---HAVE STARTED WORKING ON MY DESK BUT DID NOT GET VERY FAR---RATHER PLAY ON HERE---LOL
NANCY, DID YOU SEND THOSE THUNDER BOOMERS MY WAY LAST NIGHT? THEY WERE REALLY LOUD AND RIGHT OVER MY HEAD ABOUT 10:30 LAST NIGHT.

LYNN I THINK YOUR SON IS RIGHT. PUT UP A COUPLE BAT HOUSES. I READ SOMEWHERE THAT THEY CAN EAT A THOUSAND MOSQUITOES A DAY FOR ONE BAT HOUSE.

JUST GOT BACK FROM MY MOMS' DR APT. MY SISTER CALLED AND SAID SHE COULD NOT DO IT. AFTER HER APT MY DAD CAUGHT ME TRYING TO GET AWAY SO I GOT STUCK THERE FOR ANOTHER HOUR TAKING CARE OF CHORES. MY BACK HURTS SO BAD RIGHT NOW I COULD JUST SIT AND CRY. HELL, IT SOUNDS BETTER THAN DOING MY DISHES AND FLOORS ANYWAY. ENOUGH OF MY LITTLE PITY PARTY. I WILL TAKE SOME PAIN KILLERS AND GET ON WITH THINGS.

LOUSY WEATHER TODAY. CAN'T GET IN THE GARDEN AFTER ALL THE RAIN YESTERDAY. IT MUST BE A SIGN THAT I NEED TO GET ON MY HOUSEWORK LOL

SISTER JUST CALLED. SHE HAS HAD ENOUGH OF THE FOLKS. LOL THIS IS HER 6TH DAY IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS. SHE WANTS ME TO GO DOWN TO HER HOUSE AND DRINK BEER. I JUST MIGHT GO AND HAVE A COUPLE (RIGHT AFTER TAKING A PAIN PILL) JUST TO HEAR WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE WHOLE SITUATION. I WILL LET YOU ALL KNOW IF SHE IS STILL ADAMENT ABOUT NOT LETTING MY AUNT GO INTO ASSISTED LIVING OR NURSING HOME.

MORNING EVERYONE ... WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE. DOESN'T LIKE WE WILL HAVE MUCH RAIN ALL WEEK, AND TEMPS SHOULD BE IN THE 70'S ... MY IDEA OF PERFECT WEATHER!

WILSON ... I AM SO GLAD YOU GOT A LITTLE BREAK ... AND THE MONEY WILL HELP (I SUPPOSE THE 16 A DAY IS BETTER THAN WHAT YOU WERE GETTING). I HOPE YOU FIND SOME GOOD TENANTS FOR YOUR APARTMENT ... YES!!!! STRESS CAN CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN!!

JOY ... BRING GS ON THURSDAY ... D SAID SHE HAS A TOY ROOM HE IS WELCOME TO PLAY IN ... AND SHE WILL SEE TO IT HE HAS CLAY TO WORK WITH IF HE WANTS TOO. WE HAD A LOVELY FATHER'S DAY ... DH DID GET HIS FOOD AND BEER!!! WE HAD A VERY NICE CHAT WITH THE KIDS AND BECAUSE WE WERE AT THEIR CLUB, HE GOT TO WATCH GOLF TOO!

I SURE HOPE THEY SPRAY FOR MOSQUITOES SOON ... WITH ALL THE RAIN WE'VE HAD OUR BACK YARD IS TOTALLY INFESTED. I CAN'T GET ANYWHERE NEAR THE GARDEN WITHOUT BEING SWARMED ... I DON'T DARE GO OUTSIDE FOR ANYTHING WITHOUT PUTTING SPRAY ON ... WE HAVE ONE OF THE 'OFF' SPRAYS THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD ... SON TALKED ABOUT GETTING A BAT BOX FOR OUT BACK ... I THINK HE HAS A GREAT IDEA. WE HAVE BIRD FEEDERS OUT AND ALONG WITH OUR NEIGHBORS FEEDERS WE ATTRACT A LOT OF DIFFERENT BIRDS, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF ALL THE MOSQUITOES!

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY ...

WILSON, YES I BELIEVE THAT STRESS CAN MAKE YOU GAIN WEIGHT.

HAD A GOOD FATHER'S DAY. MOMMA, DADDY, AND I WENT TO SEE MY AUNT AND UNCLE YESTERDAY. THEY ARE DOING MUCH BETTER. BOTH OF THEM STILL HAVE A LONG WHILE TO GO.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT DAY.

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A NICE FATHERS' DAY. MINE WAS GOOD. MY SISTER CAME HOME A COUPLE DAYS EARLY FROM HER CAMPING TRIP AS THE WEATHER THERE WAS GETTING QUITE BAD. SHE TOLD ME TO TAKE TWO DAYS OFF, SHE WOULD HANDLE IT FOR ME. BUT I ENDED UP THERE ANYWAY TO MOW THEIR LAWN BEFORE THE BBQ TODAY. I GOT CAUGHT IN A THUNDER STORM AND POURING RAIN SO I LEFT MY MOWER THERE. IT DID CLEAR UP AND TURNED OUT TO BE A NICE DAY. MY COUSIN LEFT ME A CHECK FOR 500. TO TAKE CARE OF HER MOM FOR THE NEXT MONTH AND IF MY NIECE WANTS TO HELP OUT I CAN PAY HER OUT OF THE 500. MY SISTER SAYS TO GIVE IT TO MY FOLKS BECAUSE SHE IS LIVING THERE. $500 DIVIDED BY 30 DAYS IS WHAT? LIKE 16 SOMETHING PER DAY? SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT. I STILL HAVE NOT CASHED IT. HER HUSBAND GOT A JOB DOWN BY THE CITIES SO THEY DO NOT WANT MY APARTMENT. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE DOWN THERE.

TALKED TO MY OTHER SISTER TONIGHT. THEY WILL BE HEADING HOME TOMORROW ALSO. I THINK SHE SAID SHE WAS IN MISSOURI TONIGHT. 700 MILES TO GO.

CHECKED ON MY GARDEN TODAY TOO. I HAVE A CHILLI PEPPER COMING! OTHER THAN THAT MY GARDEN LOOKS PRETTY BAD. I THINK TOO MUCH RAIN THIS SPRING.

DOES ANYONE BELIEVE STRESS CAN MAKE YOU FAT? I HAVE NOT BEEN EATING MUCH LATELY BUT I AM GAINING WEIGHT.

IF YOU GET KIRBY A RAINCOAT, YOU'LL HAVE TO POST A PICTURE. TOO FUNNY.
