Default Wednesday Wet Again

Morning Mates, it's another wet morning in Pictou County, although the sun is making a valiant effort to appear....hopefully it will clear up by this afternoon so we can play outside. I love this time of year because we can take the kids out to play every day and enjoy what little sunshine we get!

Not much else is new; the $3,000 estimate for the car is now up to $4,900, but thankfully, covered by insurance. Meanwhile, James is driving a rented big Mitsubishi SUV which he hates because "it drives like a tank"!

Have a good day everyone!

donna

Hi Kids,
A beauty of a day today...Donna, it will your way soon! I am off to get my new pair of glasses,and then for a cortisone shot for my poor old knees.... Trying to get all my Drs appts done before I begin medicare at the end of the month..I swear every time I get something from them in the mail, I think I am reading mail for my Mother! Bruce is going into the hospital again for more surgery on the hernia they removed, or maybe I should say they thought they removed Enough already, huh?

Here is a picture of one of the 2 diaper cakes I just completed. The Mom got three ! Can you tell which one is mine?


Make it a good one!

Good morning from a sunny, and warm Texas.

Linda, You are so talented. I love yours.

Donna, Had to laugh at James driving the tank.

Boy, I hope today goes better than yesterday. Yesterday was Jake's last shot appointment. It had been pretty all day, but just as we were about to leave, there was a little black rain cloud above us, which opened up the heavens. Jake has not been out that much, so he was unsure of the truck.

We made our appointment, and all was well. (He has gained 16 lbs. in one month) We got ready to leave, and it again was pouring rain. He saw the truck, and started backing up. I finally picked him up, and got him in, and he tried to get out as I closed the door. His tail got caught in the door, and when he yelled, I went into a full blown panic attack. I froze for a moment, but finally managed to get the door open. He tried very hard to get out, and his nail caught my arm, and ripped it open.

So lets recap. Two wet people that love each other, one bloody woman, one crying dog, and I am acting like I am having a heart attack.

I did what anyone will do who has a love of their life, I called Jim. He was at work, but was able to get outside, so we could talk, and he talked me through it. After it was over, I was drained, but was able to drive home. Last night, it took all I could to get dinner on the table, but this morning, I feel much better.

This morning I had to take Bella to the groomer, and she is much easier, except they just called, and said the power had gone out, but she is safe there to wait, so all is good.

I did see something this morning that warmed my heart. I was on my way into town, and I heard sirens. I pulled over because I couldn't tell which way it was coming. I realized that every car had also pulled over. What a sight to see, a clear path for the fire truck to get through, knowing someone else besides ourselves, are in need of help.

I talked to Todd last night. He needs your thoughts and prayers. He is having a real hard time, dealing with his health.

I hope all of you have a good day.

Luanne

Good morning. A bright and sunny day here in SoCal.

Keith plans to go to Riverside tomorrow, so I might go shopping. Our wedding anniversary trip to San Diego is coming up and I need shoes.

Nothing much going on here today.

Thinking good thoughts for Todd.

Luanne, I know your experience with Jake the truck and the panic attack was serious, but your telling of the story made me laugh.
Not long ago I accidentally ran over Griffin's tail tail with the beater brush on the vacuum cleaner. It SUCKED up his whole tail and he screamed bloody murder! I nearly had a panic attack, trying to free his tail, and collapsing crying over him. He was fine thank goodness...

Good morning Mates

With all the rain that Donna is getting, I would be willing to tke some of it down here. Sunshine is great, but the plants do need some moisture.

I will be away from Cruisemates posts for a few days, because I am taking a trip to Ct.

Donna, I know what you mean. As I think of it now, I must have been a sight.

Manuel, Is anything wrong in CT? Didn't you just get back?

I have to take care of some things in my property. My place is rented but we do want to sell it so we need to remove some items and touch-up a couple of things.

Good afternoon

We have the most beautiful day here today with temps in the mid 70's,sunny and a light breeze.

Did a lot of yard work, mowing,edging,trimming,weed picking and laying a little mulch, now I'm ready my cup of tea in the shade on deck!
