  15. Morning all!! well that is one cute Caterpillar lol love it I almost typed Cute-apillar!! lol well had a good birthday yesterday many calls and daughter and hubby were here most of the afternoon into evening we watched some netflix and ate and it was nice to see them without one or the other running back to the computers lol no work yesterday for all of us She gave me a 14 carat gold and diamond necklace it is just lovely and is meant to bring good luck to those that wear it!! Ill never take it off lol and before they move they want to exchange tvs my smaller one in the craft room that was new at Christmas for a bigger one so im game lol same brand same quality plus bigger and higher resolutuin i guess it wont hang on where they want it on the wall so they want smaller for that particular place lol no prob with me i could use bigger one in here lol we watched a movie on abe. Lincoln i was quite bored through it all as much of it was politics instead of what i thought his life with some civil war history though in this was mostly about him and his party trying to get amendment 13 passed in the then house and senate on a scale of one to ten id be generous to give it a 3 Then we watched one called Mercy now this one was very confusing and lots of violence and i didn't or wasn't able to follow a lot of it as it was filmed mostly in the dark woods or dark places the story was not really that clear i kept having to ask who is that or what is he doing or which brother got killed lol another i'd say maybe 4 just for the action and suspense i guess even though it moved pretty quickly for me you know lol The rock show sounds amazing! we have a museum in Lincoln we used to visit a lot and they have displays of a lot of rocks and crystals and things and a dinosaur bone display, Indian arrowheads and pottery and relics found here in Nebraska too that was always a fav day trip!! in school we had field trips almost every year there that and the state capital and then later on with daughter we took her a couple of times too another museum a bit further away ( west of here ) had some great displays too in or around Grand Island i guess called Stuhr museum fabulous place!! And Pioneer village a whole village of olde there much to see well crew i guess i have made up for yesterday not getting online huh , so i will leave you and try to start the day or at least think about it lol later then!!
