We are going again in early November. It has been about 7 years since our last visit. Far too long. Can't wait. I have my Rainbow Mickey coin purse all ready. Maybe I can find a rainbow shirt to wear on the plane going down!

Neibor called, large dogs, both, decided playing with copperheads would be fun. Luckily both were dry, no venom, bites. Blu's head swelled up 3 times its normal size. Luna had a swollen eye. Neither one acted hurt. No breathing problem, so we just kept a close eye on them. Thankfully no vet need. We couldn't afford the cat's bill, borrowed money from niece. Not adding another one on top of that one was very good. If our critters can stay healthy, we might have niece paid off sometime in the next year.

I went to Disneyland with my parents and brother when I was 9. They are all gone, just me left. I've been to Disneyworld quite a few times, with our kids and by ourselves. Lots of fun!

Glad your poor dogs are ok. We have 2 cats. They are 10 years old and have never been outdoors. There are coyotes, foxes and other creatures in the woods behind us.

The last time I was at Disney world, I went up to Goofy and told him/her that when I was younger, Goofy was my favorite Disney character! Did not see "the big bad wolf". I did see Figment, though! The first time I went, I was 10 years old.

A movie/tv show is on, the yammerer is talking! Wish she'd be quiet when others are trying to watch tv! Never gonna happen, though! Yammering seems to be what she does best! She has claimed "I worked all my life. " Yeah! Worked her mouth! Not much else.

Back when our kids were really little and The Ninja Turtles were popular there was an area at one of the Disneyworld parks where you could wait in line and have your picture taken with them. Of course our kids did that and were thrilled. I don't think we've ever talked to any of the characters. I don't believe most of them can talk back, since they obviously would not have the voice of the character they are "being."

For my birthday this year my son got me (from Ebay) the 5 dwarves and Snow White that I did not have. Tiny metal figurines by Arribas (about an inch high) with crystal embellishments. Very good kid, that boy!

Yes I have. I don't think they have them around here. I like Michael's.

As we were traveling down our road headed to Michael's there were 2 vehicles just ahead. The one right in front of us was tailgating the other car which looked like it was going the speed limit (35 mph). The first car turned down a side road and the car directly in front of us took off like a shot, easily 60 or 65. Jeff and I both said "why is there never a cop?!" And, not more than a quarter of a mile down the road there was "Mr. In a Big Hurry" pulled over, getting a ticket. Made our day!

R.I.P. Olivia Newton John. While I wasn't a huge fan of her music, I absolutely love the movie Grease.

Our eldest started a new job last week and was told the hours were from 7 am to 5 pm. Monday through Saturday, it's a long day with an hour drive each way but he's fine with that. Then it was working until 7 pm. Eldest says fine, that's how construction goes. So 4 days in and it's, well, while the weather is nice maybe we can start at 6:30 now it's 6 am. until after 7. I may be doing a bit of research on labour laws around here to see if that's reasonable working hours.

That is a terribly long day, Mausey. Hopefully he is being paid for all those hours! It might be wise to keep some sort of log of his hours and if he could get a boss to sign off on it, all the better!

From the look on the young guy's face as we drove past, I don't think getting a ticket ever crossed his mind. Another entitled spoiled brat? Possibly!

GOOD! We live in a relatively remote location, cop-wise. Us63 is a major hiway, just not a four-lane, divided, limited access one. It runs across several states, thus the US designation. It's a couple miles from our house, and so is our main road for getting to a lot of different big towns and cities, like to the south of us, Houston (Missouri), Cabool, Willow Springs, etc., and to the north, Rolla (have to go through Edgar Springs), and after several small towns, Jefferson City (state capitol), and Columbia (where my VA hospital is), to name a few.

Yesterday, on our way to Rolla, we encountered a major traffic backup behind the trucks repainting the center yellow lines and the shoulder white lines. We were less than 6 vehicles back from the line crew vehicles, which turned off to turn around and go the other direction, after 10+ agonizing minutes of crawling along a 65MPH hiway at almost 10MPH. People immediately started getting back up to speed, including the semi-truck-trailer two vehicles up from us. The trucker did a respectable job of getting the big rig up to the speed limit, plus an extra MPH or 3, so I was in no hurry to try to pass. Now, US63 is a 3-lane road in our area, with the center lane that comes and goes, passing lane for each direction, alternating. First passing lane for northbound, this red SUV went by us like we were in reverse. He passed a total of 4 vehicles, semi included (turned out there was a car in front of HIM), doing easily 75+ MPH. Remember I mentioned Edgar Springs? There's a speed zone through it; speed limit goes from 65 to 55 to 45 to 55, to back to 65 through there. But Edgar is so small that they have 1 cop, and he only patrols about 1 day a month, on average (yes, he's always on call). Yesterday was not that day, dammit. Clown would have been a prime target, too. He was from out-of-state, plate said Arkansas. I sure was wishing Edgar Springs' finest would have been on speed patrol. That town has a history of being a speed trap that goes back through the 1950s, too!

We might actually be able to go for our walk today. It has been oppressively hot and humid for over a week. Still in the low 80's for temperature but the humidity is around 70%.

That person should be sent the cleaning bill and possibly get a fine as well. Sounds rather like yelling "fire" in a theater when there is NO fire.

There is a vaccine for monkeypox.

I hope we can find a answer for my right foot, its not getting the supoort after the shoe is broken in, so I hope we can find a answer, I feel it might turn in when I try to start walking longer , trying out my new Victer Trek, and falling, and then be in a world of hurtand/or my caregivers hurt, 'What was that saying, thatmis also on PERN? --A Pound of pintch of somthing is wrworth a Pound of Pervention ?' I think its Moreta: Dragonlady of Pernm, Fort's Headwoaman to Moreta early in the book. I am trying that right now, telling my staff and going to record down that my ankel is going to need mabey more suport added to that shoe iif we can have it written that way, a sprained one is no good, even if I have to only use it outside not inside, just to keep me safe.

Ginny, I went to 3 different podiatrists about 7 years ago because my feet hurt. They stuck my feet with cortisone shots, sold me expensive custom made shoe inserts and claimed I might need surgery. Not once did they look at the shoes I was wearing to see if they were the correct size and width. After 2 years of pain and frustration I went with my husband to a Hawley Lane shoe store where an older gentleman measured my feet and it turned out the sneakers I had been wearing for years were one size too big and far too narrow. I now wear SAS WW and my feet have been fine ever since. I have thought about going back and telling this to the last podiatrist but I doubt it would make any impression on them. Unfortunately checking a shoe size would not have made them any money.

I hope you are able to get good, stable support for your feet. That is so important!

Priscilla, I have to have size 7 1/2 w or 8 w shoes! If I wear regular shoes, my feet start hurting! A little while ago, was choking on some bread (a sandwich), raised my arms over my head, didn't work, so I went to the garbage can and spit in it. Started breathing again! Whew!

Here is a good story, rather convoluted. It seems about a year ago someone enquired about a house and land they wanted to buy on a lake in central CT. They got in touch with a real estate agent who gave them the owners name. They googled the name and got a couple phone numbers. First number a guy says "sure, I own that and I'll sell it to you for $65,000" turns out he did not own it, BUT his name is almost identical to the actual owner. The sale went through and neighbors of the property began seeing someone going around the place claiming to be the owner. They called the real owner who lives out of state. End result, the guy who sold the place and pocketed the money was in court today and plead "not guilty!" I read that the property was actually worth about $250,000 and the poor duped buyer has now purchased it from the REAL owner. You cannot make this stuff up!

I was thinking there HAS to be more to this. Supposedly the buyer had been "wanting" to buy lakefront property for some time. If that is true they should have known that what they were paying was no where near what the place was worth. Something a bit fishy about all this. Like a lot of "news" I suppose we will never get the whole story. On to the next Shiney Object!

Seems to me I have to do more than I'm supposed to!! After bossy girl got done with her dinner, I was supposed to do the dishes. Yesterday, mom said I'm not supposed to be in the kitchen. To do the dishes, one has to be in the kitchen!! If I have to go to the house on the hill, I'll quietly tell the cook, that I was supposed to do the dishes Thursday evening!

We had chocolate/peanut butter Haagen Das ice cream on our strawberries tonight for dessert. So far that brand and Ben & Jerry's are our favorite companies.

Can't your room mate get her own ice cream?
