http://cheezburger.com/7459808512 // As you can see, I DID have a great day & was so happy! Sure wore me out, though--just can't party like I used to!!! How have you been? Are things getting easier? Or have you had to get more lip band-aids? I hope not! My black stray cat hasn't been coming around much at all. Will go a couple of weeks & then show up for one, maybe two, nights & then gone again for a couple of weeks. Maybe he does belong to someone who lets him wander. We hit 86 degrees yesterday! Notice on my comix that I put in Low Humidity! Jeff was SO relieved about that as it makes him miserable. Sunday was absolutely perfect with the low hum., high 70s, sunny & breezy. We sat outside most of the afternoon--was SO nice! Later! Hugs!

Fluffy is the one with the matted hair, right? What kind of sick was he? Do you think the people to shave that picked him up? I, too, hope he didn't suffer--that's always the bad thing about when they just disappear. We had one to do that & it has bothered me still after 25 yrs. But she did have a good life with us, just allowed to go outside when she wanted to. Poor Fluffy seems like he's always had it 'ruff'! Flip-flop weather? HA! We've haven't had that since at least April 26--that I remember. Today is first day it's made it out of the 50's. Everyday was cloudy, very windy, & rain, rain, rain! We've had flooding in all the usual places that tend to flood (in ALL of northern GA), trees up-rooting due to the saturation, & knocking down power lines, falling onto houses & cars & even sinkholes. Not only could we not where flip-flops, but needed socks & long-sleeve shirts--at least! It's been weird.--20 degrees lower than the norm, but Lake Lanier is the fullest it's been in 10 yrs. We've got some sunshine today but supposed to rain again this pm & tomorrow. Clear & WARM Thursday, but rain again after that through the weekend! I'm gonna be off here for a week --except for BDs & Mother's Day--as my son in NYC is coming to visit. Trying to get some things ready for that & SO excited as I haven't seen him in 2 yrs. I do get my messages from here on my email, so if you have anything important, like you, your babies, esp. Fluffy, let me know! TTYL & Hugs!

I'm glad you are getting back into your regular routine and hope all the soreness will be gone before much longer. We are having rotten weather (chilly and cloudy with lots of rain) and it makes all of us with bad parts ache. My husband both dreads and looks forward to the surgery. I just hope all goes well and he progresses normally (I worry about infection a lot). I don't think he really understands how much his muscles have atrophied and how long it is going to take for him to walk anywhere near normally even after the hip itself is rehabbed. I've never used a cordless mower and hadn't thought about the weight of the battery. I actually enjoy the smell of gas and oil, but I was a Tomboy and grew up in a garage. Those smells bring back good memories. I know most folks find them very unpleasant. Have a good week!

Oh, no, no, no! *I* didn't TAKE it that way--just teasing that it sounded like that. I'm sorry--that's my twisted humor! I have to laugh about anything I can or else I'd cry! Or might start biting my lip. I value our friendship very, very much and hope I have helped during your recovery. Now we can gripe about other things--BTW are you still having to do PT? Think I EDed that to someone. Did you get a response yet in helping your 'old matted fur-kid'? Anyway--HAD to respond to this ASAP to let you know I was just teasing--you & the cyber-folks! Hugs!

I'm glad Tiger let you know that collar was not right and that you were home to get it off right away. These companies don't care at all what they foist off onto us. All they think of is profit. Oh yes, I know about the horror in Boston. We may be in America, but, sad to say, we are far from safe. The Virginia Tech massacre took the "won't happen here" attitude right out of me. We have lock down drills all the time, but we all know that if shooters come with the right weapons, they will get in (if they aren't our own and already inside) and can shoot through cinder block walls. The drills are more to give folks a sense of having some control than anything else--make me think of the old duck and cover drills that were going to save us from nuclear bombs. We are locked in, but we have no armed guards. Columbine had two, and that didn't help them , so it doesn't matter. It's obvious that no gun control measures are about to be passed in this country, and even if they were passed, Boston clearly shows how easy it is to make very effective bombs from simple items, and anyone can learn how on the Web. I just shove all those thoughts to the back of my mind and keep going. I've done my job for 41 years, and it really irks me when politicians tell me what to do. They have no idea what they are talking about and no desire to get any input from those who do. May Social Security and Medicare last long enough for us to escape!

Thanks for getting you through the winter? That sounds like a 'Dear John" letter! (OK, Cyberfolks, don't get any screwy ideas!) But I hope I did help. I've really enjoyed our chats even if it takes me a week to get back to you. I sure do wish you luck & him/her on that. I hear they get used to it, but boy, oh boy, how they love it when it's gone! You're so good to help these strays. I'm tired of saying I don't understand how people can do things like that. I've got to face the fact that there are literal scumbags living among us. Yes, I'm very glad I haven't had those pains again--I surely never realized how bad it was & scares me now that it will probably happen again in the future. You must have gone through hell to have gotten to the point to need a replacement! I hope next week's work gets better, but enjoy the weekend for now! Big Hugs & Smiles!

Was about to 'check' & make sure my other message came through. I'm sure this has been a really tough week for you. Maybe you should market the lip band-aids as you could quit this job & may be even more 'financially compensated'! I've never seen one & I wonder at how they would stick on a lip due to the moisture. Good that Rocky & Tiger have made a good compromise. I'm sure Millie would never do that--yet I do love her very much. Haven't seen my stray black cat in a week now, but that isn't out of the ordinary for it. SO glad my hip hasn't still given me any more pain. My PC Dr. seems to always know what is going on & the best Rx for it. I'm fortunate to have found him. Take care & rest up over the weekend. Bonks to the boys & the strays (at least mentally), don't be kissing a lot so the lips can heal, & Big Hugs to You!

I'm glad your weather is moderate. We have very few days like that here, I'm sorry to say. I totally understand that nothing has changed. No matter how long a break one has, it's totally forgotten the first two minutes back. I hope you aren't exhausted.

SO sorry that I didn't leave you a message about 'good luck' your first day back. Just kept getting interruptions all day & p.m. However, you were on my MIND & have been all today. I'm assuming your need for lip bandaids is that you'll be biting your lip when it hurts rather than yelling! I sure hope you didn't have to use any. When you have time, let me know how it went--please? I have had NO back pain whatsoever for a week now. Well in the hip area--my lower back has bothered me for years when doing dishes, etc., etc., etc.! Are Rocky & Tiger still doing okay? I bet Rocky was hurt about your being gone all day since you've spent almost all your time at home with him for 2 months. Give them both a bonk for me! Hugs! BIG Hugs!
