KT! Then I am going to text you on your cell phone!! I'm glad to hear that your Dad is hanging on and that you are still breathing! You and your family are in my prayers. I have to go to bed and am very tired, so forgive the choppiness of this message. Thank you for answering tonight.

Hi KT, sorry to hear the road is still bumpy for you. Praying for your dad and of course for you. The trip to Kentucky sounds like a wonderful idea. Hope you have great weather while you are there to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air blowing on your face. Good thing to go in search of peace. But you may want to put some dishes in that car trunk. Just in case you want to throw a dish or two during your thinking process. Remember the calm doesn't come until after the storm. ;)

Littering fine can't be too high in Kentucky. After all, they do have horses that poop all over.

Hi Acemom, sorry for the delay in answering. Getting things done while waiting for the next item. So far only purchased R/C cars but missed something else I would have gotten. Must not have really needed it because now I can't remember what it was.

I'm doing fine, husband is fine, kids are great and grandbaby is the best. He is now 6 months old and it's great to play with him and then hand him back and let them do all the work.

I seem to remember one night reading that you had a "friend" sleeping on your couch. You go girl!!! Don't get to read much around here so I don't know how long you've had a sleep over buddy but I'm happy for you. I'm even happier if he isn't a snoring guy. l o l

Dad is still weak, but he's still here with us.

He gets very tired and naps several times a day. He's on a ridiculous amount of meds.

My parents have finally surrendered to the fact that they needed a landscape/lawn service...I'm witnessing their transition into senior citizenry and dependence.

Heya, Terry!

On Friday, I was just itching to go...only one more week before I go~!

The trip will encompass a little of OH, lots of KY and a moderate amount of TN...I'll be a "driving fool." I just need to get away from here. I spent the last year doing all the hard stuff, it's "me" time.

Josephus wrote:hey KT, hope you're doing OK.



I'm doing okay. As the one year anniversary pulls nearer, it gets a little harder, but I am still here.

It has been a year of soul searching...what I want out of life, what I want from my next relationship and how important my health plays into all of the above.

Volunteerism has played a significant part in my life this past year. Had I still been married, my husband would have poo-pooed the idea of charity work. He was stingy that way. I know it is cliche, but helping others has helped heal part of me.

I have found that I am a FANTASTIC mother to my 3 cats! I've grown so much closer with all of them. I am not sure there will be room for a man in my life in the future, they already occupy the entire bed.

Enough about me...give me a few lines as to what's up with you all?!?!

Since Dodgeball has always been played on the days opposite the photoshop contest, does the change in the contest affect Dodgeball?

bind weed. it's popping up all through our borders, under our blueberries, around the garden. I'm pulling them up, but it's a tough, long-term battle. There are approximately 1 quadzillion of them.

also, got the 9 yr old going to karate. I think he may end up getting his black belt. right now he's about to get his 2nd degree red. then 3rd degree red, then 3 browns, then black. each test approximately 3 months apart.

I once planted two violets. Now they are everywhere! Soon the lawn will have tiny purple flowers in it.
But it isn't that bad because it stays lower than the grass and you can mow it.

I had something that was a vine with flowers like that, last year.
It was growing on the fence between me and the neighbor. We both liked it, but I cut it down to the grown at the end of the year. Had a feeling it would take over if I didn't.
Sort of hope it comes back.

Nobody planted it. Must have been the birds.

No return address. It would be amusing if it wasn't so horrible. Don't know anything about Scott Ballard, but I certainly wouldn't vote for the bastard that is running against him.

Notice that it says Citizen Action Committee. That doesn't mean the opponent had anything to do with it. Notice how commercials and ads now state that So-and-so approved that ad.

We had some really bad propaganda going around during an election a few years ago that was soley the action of citizens.

This is true, however I have no way of knowing if the opponent took any part in it... news searches are fruitless.

I get at least one automated, unsolicited phone call each week from a group calling themselves "Citizens For Governmental Truth" or some such rot. The message varies, but it's always similar to:

Congressman Tom Reynolds kicks puppy dogs. Congressman Tom Reynolds eats babies. Congressman Tom Reynolds lied to his mother. Alot. Call him at 456-222-1212 and tell him what you think about him."



I wasn't going to support Tom Reynolds anyway, but these calls are way overboard. And they come from a blank caller-ID and hidden number. I'm on the do-not-call list, but political action committees are exempt. Bastids!
