they were upstairs - safe and far away. They have brekkie and then head back to bed. Evenings they come hang with me on my weekends. I think it's partially due to my office being upstairs as I work from home - so they are just across the hall during mmy work day. Weekends, they dont' re-adjust..

Charlie Sheen??!! That makes me want to throw up too. Pretty lame-o reasoning on the Buckeyes, Mister. =) I'm glad for Kris! As for the Hawgs, they looked like the Dawgs. That's funny about Becky! Are there a bunch more berries left to fall? If so, you might be hard pressed to keep them all cleaned up. I wouldn't think it would hurt anything if she got to munch a few. We're still trying to figure out whether to play McCoy, as he is going to play today but who knows how much. Also we've got Torrey Smith and Travis Benjamin who are playing but banged up. If we ever needed a crystal ball this would be the week!

Eh? What was that you said about the Buckeyes? And how 'bout them Loozerbacks! That was just ugly. Baseball, however, was mind blowing. I felt bad for Kershaw, especially since his defense didn't help matters any. I kept expecting them to turn it around, but the Cubs were were on fire. One thing I really enjoyed was watching the Cubs' fans. Whoever panned the crowd did a great job. I wonder what those crunchy little berries are that Becky likes so much. It reminds me of my sis's dogs stuffing themselves on pecans every year. Those things are really fattening and there's no end to them. I never did get much done in the yard, I tried to get the worst of the pine needles and leaves off the walks, only to watch more falling where I'd just swept. I finally just gave up. The balcony was much more enjoyable.

Responsibility is not only elusive, it also covers a broad spectrum of activities. Eating responsibly has never been big on my list of 'do's' either. Poor Chuck has to start worrying about that one now. I give the Aggies a better chance than most at beating Bama, but if I was to bet on it, I'd still have to go with Bama. I plan on heading outside and doing some yard cleanup. It's just too nice out to sit inside, even for that game. Chuck will just have to give me updates.

The forties were good for us, too. We'd finally settled down and matured into somewhat responsible adults. That's pretty wild about Jones. Sounds like he's lucky he finally hit on a scheme that turned out to be a winner. I suppose even the best families have to have a black sheep mixed in somewhere, or at least as in your case a rather dubious gray one. =) The McCoy situation is a tough one. Even if he plays, that hamstring could act up at any time. We have one of Atlanta's RBs, Tevin Coleman, we'll probably use instead. He's one of two RBs they use and has had some very good games, along with a couple of real duds. He's got an easy matchup against San Diego this week tho, so maybe he'll pull off another good one.

I wouldn't even mind being 40 and over the hill again, personally. I had no idea a member of your own family was a Dallas fan! And here I thought there were no flaws in your clan. I knew Jones made his money in oil (definitely cliche'!) but I'd never heard about the Teamsters connection. Funny that never comes up. Unions were a wonderful idea in the beginning but they got waaay out of hand, and the Teamsters were among the worst.

It IS pretty racy, isn't it? LOL I hope nobody complains. I guess McCoy let success go to his head and started thinking he was Iron Man or something, despite the fact that he's 28 and practically over the hill as far as RBs are concerned. I really don't know how Dallas fans view Jerry. I don't associate with Dallas fans. None that will come out and admit it anyway. I do know Red always thought he was a jerk. Sis probably doesn't even know who he is. And Chuck's sis and her husband don't pay much attention to pro football either. I guess most Arkies like him, judging by the amount of local press he gets. He played college ball at the U of A and now he's filthy rich. Those things go a long way around here. =)

Excellent response from Stray! I always did like that woman. She apparently knows you rather well. Heh Heh Geez, I need to change my profile pic. Opus is probably tired of holding that ice cream cone. Funerals platform! LOL I suppose wardrobe is as good an assessment of the debate as anything this year. There's sure not much else to go on. I was afraid McCoy might start having some problems, as he's older and they've been running him hard. I wonder what Dallas is going to do with Romo in the next few weeks. No telling what Jerry Jones will decide.

It sure will be a relief to get going. I'm pretty sure Chuck won't have any trouble staying still, not with that hood thing holding his head down. I know how they like to caution you about staying still. I got that, too. I think they're probably just used to reminding people. "Classy restraint" - hah! Sounds like it might have been kinda fun to watch the debate with your folks, what with the comments they were throwing out there. I would have had to show some "classy restraint" myself to keep the smile off of my face. I'm past feeling sorrow and am just disgusted with the whole thing. Hell No sounds really appropriate to me. We're in trouble this week as far as FF is concerned. LeSean McCoy has a hamstring injury and he's looking very iffy for this Sunday and maybe beyond. Several of our other players are on the injury list too. Oh well - it was fun while it lasted!

It really does sound scary and ugly. Chuck's treatments will be a piece of cake compared to that. They'll do a scan of his neck on the 7th to map out exactly where they need to radiate, and then on the 14th they'll get started. They have to put "some kind of hood thing" over his head to brace his head so that he can't move it. That will probably be the hardest part. But it's only for about 10 minutes each time. Side effects are minimal - tiredness, sore throat, some trouble swallowing and talking. Oh, and sunburn from the radiation. "You might be a redneck if..." I should be able to get some good digs in about that. =) We didn't watch the debate. If they'd dressed in their skiffies and had actual mud to throw at each other, I might have been interested. "That pretty little girl"? Wow. That would have knocked me for a loop, for sure. I had 3 stops to make on my grocery run, but 2 were in & out and WW wasn't crowded and was only out of one thing I needed this time. Plus, Chuck got home from the doc's right when I arrived and helped me with the groceries. Can't beat that for good timing! I see the Cubs finally found their bats. About time!

Ooh, leukemia. I've heard that's some serious treatment. I'm glad it went well for your friend. I love the Amazon wish lists too. I want to get a book Cataff had recommended for my sis but want to wait until she and her her kids get their lists up for this year so I can just get everything at one time. The Caddyshack addition to a a goggie cooking show would be great fun! LOL I need to make my grocery run today. I'd like to wait until tomorrow when it will be much cooler out, but we don't have enough coffee left for the morning. ACK!

Those pine needles are a pain, no doubt, but I'd rather deal with them than the gazillion leaves we'll soon be getting. It sure would be nice just to be able to take a pill to treat cancer. And a pill to treat Alzheimer's too, while we're dreaming. I don't know what kind of cancer your neighbor had, but I'm thinking Chuck's will probably be much easier to treat than most due to the location. I do worry about the possible side effects all that radiation is going to have, tho. How's the chore list looking for your folks today? Did anything ever happen with that one pesky outdoor light? Oh looky! Another FP! That dog should have his own show on the Food Channel!
