HI BGS!! i will probably do a few of the stockings they go quickly enough you know nothing much else here more rain on its way rained a bit early this am but has been overcast all day hope it does rain enough we are awfully dry here it seems mini is still in heat i guess but thank goodness it probably wont last much longer we hope as we think this is her first and will for sure be her last lol oops started this post last night lol anyway Holly good to hear from you i for one was a bit worried about you glad your eyes are ok and good luck to hubby on his upcoming surgery 7th grade huh now the real fun begins!! glad all else is ok and the girls are healthy and probably excited for school too but at the same time mixed feelings lol i was always glad to get back to school but sad too cause our summer was over you know ''well mary jo five days and bgs i think we will watch the eclipse on tv lol we will get it here but only 98 percent eclipsed here so it will have that two percent ring on the outside rim that is good enough for me lol south of us in Lincon will get the full effect but getting there for it on a normal day is too much traffic so we opted to watch it safely on tv they say those glasses they sell are really not that good protection for your eyes as i saw on the news last night are any of us in Va Pineknot you are right is there any overt effects of the protests near where you live i hope you are far enough away but it is a mess to be sure raining here this am has been alll night i think flash floods north and west of us in low lying areas we needed the rain but the trouble with rain is we never seem to get the right amount either too much or too little you know i find i still cabt wear my rings without fear of loosing them off my fingers i would have thought by now but nope still fall off as my fingers are just too skinny now lol Lynda be careful at the mall walking some weird stuff happens in malls speaking of weird stuff daughter had some trouble at work she was telling me about she is admin at an office that disspurses caregivers to clients snd she had some elderly couple tell her they thought a good amount of their prescription drugs were missing so they had a viisiting nuse regularly as well as the home care gal and ran drug testing on the nurses first they cleared and then daughters employees were asked to comply and all but one did and cleared but the one that didnt hought of all sorts of reasons she couldnt do it though but daughter told her then you wont work here anymore if it is not ddone by end of bisiness today she fiinally came in at the last moment and confessed to daughter that it was she that stole the drugs she was reported immediately to both the police and child protection agencies as she was pregnant not to mention interviwed in the office by a dective she of course was immediately fired by daughter on the spot and taken away by police such a thing huh but i have heard before ofthis happening as an easy way for drug addicts to lay their hands on drugs so just a heads up keep all meds locked up and or out of reah when you might have people like visiting nurses or home health aides in your house sheesh! amd at least they know now yheir people are all clean huh i gurss it was quite upsetting to everyone i remember our office had a sexual harassment charge once and how upsetting thar was to us all he got fired as well although i never really beleived he was guilty but someone higher up must have and a time too that the office cleaner lady stole some checks from our office she too ws caught and prosecuted and so what are you goiing to do,huh, watch your own back do your job and report anyrhing suspicious i guess huh is the best advice i can think of too much happening in the world now a days and there will always be crime unfotunately well about all for now and i will return again soon enjoy you day oh mini has an appt on tuesday and they told me it doesnt matter if she is in heaat or not but if dhe isnt in heat that works too but i put it on the day after the eclipse instead of the suggested day of lol too much traffic to contend eith im sure
