    hi lea, like i said stress can be harmful to us and the shepard must have sensed unrest somwhow, i listen to my animal's when they ey "talk" to me like your doggie did they are more aware of our moods and states of mind, then we are, for sure Once my girl Ginger would not leave us alone, and we heeded her instincts, and soon later a tornado roared through about a mile or two away she sensed it and warned us Its as close as i ever wanna be to one, we felt it but passed our area thank goodness they are way wiser than we be i know for sure. i hope you get to feeling better, i wish i could sit with you a while, have a diet coke or tea and chat a while i guess this is the next best, huh lol consider yourself hugged lea!!

    well hello all haven checked in for a day or two but im here!! Glad to see mini and lea, leagal woman, and ratdog too along with everyone else Brenda, can you have a pet in the new place cos i would highly recommend at least getting an indoor cat, maybe to keep your stress levels in check i know how hard tc's passing was on you, i was the same with my Ginger I for th life of ne, and for a few weeks after she passed, could not remember how to make a granny square for the life of me i held a finished one even and tried to figure it out but didnt even know where to start you know stress, and grief are just dangerous when levels are high you know least for me I think a small doggie, or an inside cat might help you some, when you get settled in i mean just my opinion i have never understood people that dont have any pets at all they miss so much you know hope all went well with dr appt lyn, how are you doing Every one is so busy enjoyng their summer, lol have fun all of you bright and sunny and hot is the word here lol then you add into that chance of rain to mug things up even more lol handy mailed off my package today for me, i sold some Homespun yarn on ebay, just six or eight i think but glad someone can use it anyway i really wasn't going to so,.... glad it went to a person that will lol oh i know, i had a headache the other day which is why i stayed off the computer, but seems ok today watched a couple weird movies too one is The bashment, feaky, and one was The Box both are strange and weird lol i will wait for toy story on netflix, or hulu, as i dont do crowded places well liol bout all for now, but ill see ya all later on take care now!!

    wow nice pics lacey !! so sorry jade is down hope it clears up very soon, and you too girlie, we miss ya!! poor avon is it computer or the ville, one never really knows from time yo time lol i always assume its me or something i did you know lol wow bgs, you have been busy on the hooks huh you go girl!! I think i won again, for may not sure, i was late checking the thread and they may have given it to someone else not sure it was a nice prize, 4 skeins of yarn a coloring book and colored pencils lol i love to color!! so it would suit me well but like i said, not sure yet if i won it on rav for squares made in may i think e overnight, cleared out noonish and now its partly cloudy temps in the 80s i think not sure of that im going by how often or not, the central air kicks on lol handy has completed his self imposed deadline for his autobiography he has been working on it for six months and it eill be a continuing thing, but he wanted to complete the first 23 tapes, and give the to daughter to listen to on fathers day i think, but there is 26 hours and it will take he a few weeks or more to hear them all i have heard them all in smaller parts, and i wish my mom and or my dad, both, would have thought to leave us some info on their lives how amazing it would be to hear their voices on tape now huh I am going to now begin my book, for lack of a better name lol soon i am putting it on cassette tape, handy used a handheld portable voice recorder with micro cassettes, but i have a small cassette recorder and tapes that i will use i dont need to have it so portable as he did i really dont know where to start, and my life has not been as interesting as his has for sure, i guess ill just start from the beginning and go with the flow lol Other thn that to start next week probably, nothing much else going on here, we are expecting daughter and hubby over on sun so other than that we a.re clear i think lol I finally got fed up with Walmart pharmacy and transferred my scripts to another real pharmacy i got fed up calling three times for a refile and waiting 3 days for them to get it done sheesh you know !! My ins wont pay if i call it in too early, so i am usually out of diabeties med right on the day i call so i need it then you know before the next day and they dont seem to get that you know so, i transferred it the other day and when i next go to the doc, i will have him send it all to the new place lol and i am done with Walmart well all hope everyone is well and doing fine and ill talk to you later take care all

    hello everyone hi alp 1, glad you had a good trip. my dad was there in Normandy i too would love to see it, and maybe walk in some of his footsteps!! ( he made it through the war, but died in 1961.. hello too snowbear, i got your picture and wow is that cool!! see if you can post it here now lol since you now know how to post lol good for you!! Carol is always on the move i tell ya girl, you wear me out lol no real rain here for days, bright sunshine, and mild temps just the way i like it yes food is getting smaller quantities, and prices have risen but not as much as if we would have had to deal with those tariffs, everything we buy, would have gone up by at least 25 percent or more!! You buy at the commissary dont you lyn, cause the prices there are still lower than at a normal grocery store, or is it?? every little bit helps!! our wages/ paychecks sure arent advancing though .. I went through my color book box thinking i could toss some that were full and completed, but i only found one to let go, the others, a couple of them maybe i will make cards out of them or smaller envelopes for notecards good idea huh lol the one i tossed was all finished, and although the paper is nice and thick i let it go cause it was taking up a lot of room in the box lol and i couldn't fit my new books in!!i saved some pages as when i use markers or gel pens i put a heavy sheet in between so it doesn't bleed through to the facing page Mary jo, i am intrigued with this project i hope you share a pic of it for us a basket from potholders, interesting lol poor bgs, always digging or winching out of mud lol and lea, good to see your feeling a lot better too spring cleaning has just hit a few of us huh lol Really all i got now, ill think of more later!!

    hi all, good to see you all hi debbie good to see you too hey Lea, handy has menieres too, but hadn't had an attack for many year, s till just a few weeks ago bout all he can do is ride it out i guess as it makes him so dizzy. it passed though and so far so good i finally got the right sized baskets from sterlite, and have spent the last several days working on my shelves and yarn storage lol they look good now These baskets held a dozen skeins each and that is more than the other ones did so i needed to sort and re arrange some yarn lol as i had room for more lol Handy has been having an issue with his old asthma problem probably this darn damp, humid, miserable heavy air also we are still suffering from the wild fires up north, with that black smoke hanging in the air too, not to mention a huge junk yard type place with lots of rubber caught fire the other day and i think that is gonna burn for days so i think he will be better when that all clears out he has a rescue inhaler now so, just in case you know oh my my craft room hoover, wouldn't suck, so handy took it out to the shed to check to ee if it was plugged, well no, some piece of course that runs the suction part was broken and so was the shaft so that is history!! I have my light weight black and decker in here now and handy took the hallway dirt devil vac out for the living room till i replace it one of these days'' always something huh When handy is feeling better he is going to buy a roll of screening material and replace our damaged ones too but that can wait till he is better The ones on the west were shredded,so he cut them out the rest of the way and they will be the first to get re screened lol we have been watching some shows on history of te second world war my dad was there, on normandy beach and made it out alive too.. he also wrote in a letter to my mom, they were not married yet, that he saw in poland some pows released too and filing out of the camp where the road had a few potato peelings in it the thick dust from a garbage truck and how they all fought to pick them up and eat them first before the next guy did that is heartbreaking to me to think of that I learned a lot watching those documentaries the last few days tragic war as all of them are for sure well i have rattled on and good for you bgs, bagging up stuff to purge lol ( pat on back) no rain to speak of for a few days we are finally drying out a bit lol well you guys keep up the good work and ill talk to you tomorrow ok!!
