    Lea forgot to say love Ethan's blanket and they really do look like the big tractors with cabs. The homemade lasagna sounds wonderful. And gee wonder who spoiled him? Mary Jo a bunny gronk sounds amusing. With the warm weather this week the trees have to be popping pollen. My youngest sister's eyes would almost swell shut this time of year. Feels like its time to dig the light weight pants out. The velours are starting to smother me.

    50° with sunshine here but there is a steady breeze. Flowers are poking thru the ground. Cant decide if I have a head cold or allergies. I am sure the trees are popping pollen.

    Lyn there is nothing soon about it. Process started over 6 months ago where stuff set til now. Dh put in request for them to look for document in his file over 3 weeks ago. The only soon part-----any thing on our end as far as responses like filing the appeal and appointing representation we wind up with less than a week to get it done. Its pretty tense at our house.

    Really frustrated as trying to get dh's retirement lined out now involves the words docket number, court date, and lawyer. Trying to get documents is not a simple task ---- work in KC, personnel file in Austin, person going to search file for document is in Cincinnati, and court is in Chicago.

    Lyn I wonder if I could wear silver but have been afraid to try. I found some plastic sleeves to go over posts and plastic backs. My ears still itch and weep just not as soon. Collette do you have experience with self piercing earrings? I did not wear earrings as I couldnt stand the clip ones. I didnt get my ears pierced til I was nearly 30. I always told people if God had wanted holes in my ears he would have put them there. Then one day in a moment of weekness my sister talked me into it so I had it done at the mall. In the beginning I would just about pass out looking in the mirror trying to get the starter studs back in the holes. I was so disappointed to not be able to wear just any earring.

    Katy flood alerts out down here because of all the water coming from SD and your area. Saw areas flooded around Omaha on the news. Glad you are ok. I got my ears pierced years ago only to find out I can only wear my starter studs and 14k gold because I have an allergic reaction to anything else.

    Jade and her art work are adorable. Lyn great news on the path report. Lea about a year ago they started adding a city fee of some sort on our cell phone bill. I called and told them I might owe it but I needed them to explain why since I lived 8 miles from the nearest town. They took it off each time and after calling for 5 months they finally quit billing it. I bet they are charging the wrong county tax. Computers usually flip us into the wrong county because we live in a different county than the the town on our mailing address. Its a windy out but the sun feels good coming thru the window. Have a big pot of corn beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots on the stove. Just have to make the corn bread.

    Mary Jo that card really cracked me up when I found it. Great going on your hockey team. Maybe they will win it this year. Yeah Houston, Ford, and Berry gone. They were fan favorites but it was probably time. Between Berry's cancer and injuries he hasnt played much and especially this past year. Houston was out most of last season with injuries and I dont think they thought Ford would fit into the new defense plan. Basically they freed up money in regard to the caps on what they can spend on players. We mailed in our fed taxes. I have the state ones figured just have to get all the forms together to mail. Our state ones are a pain to figure.

    Mona Judy cute turtle. Its mostly been cloudy and raining the past few days but the sun broke thru for a bit yesterday afternoon and we finally hit 60° for the first time since back in Oct. Today its cloudy with the wind howling away. Cooking dh's corn beef. Think I will let it cool so I can slice it and fix the cabbage, carrots, potatoes, and cornbread tomorrow. Been working on hot pads. Shamrocks for sis and niece and very large round one for nieces kitchen table with glass in the very center.

    Carole glad to see you checking in. The bread and cinnamon rolls look so good. Lea its always very disturbing when they report animal abuse on the news but its horrific to see it in person. I think it would be very disturbing wondering who in the area is doing such things. Lyn such cute paintings. Have you found or painted any rocks lately? Mary Jo how's hockey going? Chiefs have been busy cleaning out the defense. We have had several cloudy rainy days. Thankful it was not snow. Yesterday afternoon the sun broke through and we finally hit 60°. The wind has been horrible last night and today. Landline has been out most of day. No wonder it was so quiet. Knew it was back because of one of those card services calls. Besides those we are constantly getting calls for dh about medicare plans. Here are a couple of shamrock hotpads for sis and niece. A big round hotpad for niece. Her dining room table is round with glass in the center.
