Totally random question:

What's up with the handset cord on the phone on my desk? All I ever do is pick up and put down the handset a few times a day. no office chair acrobatics, no bemused twirling while on hold, no fiddling while I talk. And yet somehow, that dang cord is always tangling itself up into knots. WTH?

If I'm walking and not paying attention, because of my phone, headphones or general 'my head is in the clouds' reason... And I trip and bust my A$$.

It's my own dang fault. Just saying.

I'm not sure what's worse, the fact I know there's a cha-cha version of "Careless Whisper" or that I know exactly where to find it.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Hi all, still alive.

Dad is going to get all the pre-radiation stuff for his cancer done in the next couple weeks. He's opted for 9 weeks of daily low dose radiation. Just so you who got to know him know.

Later all.

turns out the secret ingredient is empty beer bottles! I'm not a drinker though, so if anyone wants to help out and put down a few in the name of science...

You called me a bonehead yesterday when I asked if you were OK. Or it could have been the general crowd where you were. It was not clear.

ooooh I did not see that before I answered your question. Touchy today, are we. OK you are officially off of my "to be concerned with" and next big event, I will not even think of how you are doing. In fact, you are now off my radar.

Can he have the radiation close to home? We have to go over the mountain, through the woods and cross the river to get to radiation. Keep us posted. You know we care!

Introduced to a couple new stores by granddaughter #2 today. XXIforever and H&M. Met two other grandmothers in XXIforever bemoaning the fact there was no place to sit down while grandkids shopped. And I introduced granddaughter to The Cheesecake Factory. We had to each bring half our dinners home because we had potstickers and I had lemoncello torte and she had fresh strawberry cheesecake. Didn't mind the prices except for the $2.95 for a Dr. Pepper.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

I'm not real fond of cheesecake, but they have a hell of a menu. So hard to decide. Granddaughter got chicken marsala and it looked scrumptious. I don't know how she did it, she had fettucini alfredo at Olive Garden earlier.

Got one. Not the closest, but not too far. Too bad I'm not real impressed with Outback.

My son likes it so I got it for him. To me the best thing there is the blooming onion and their bread.

Suddenly tired, think I'm turning in early.

Good luck getting last post all you last post triers.

Good night.

KtC. Saying a prayer for your Dad.

East Coasters you too are in my prayers especially D'name 'cause it looks like they're predicting Irene is going to hit L.I. directly.

In the end only kindness matters

At first we didn't think so, but apparently there is. He can go to the local hospital, but the overseeing doctor will be coming down from Seattle.

Thanks all for your prayers and well wishes.

I sure local is much better.
The guy next door did that this winter. He was thinking of walking to the hospital in the snow.

I'll be praying for him.

whole lotta wind
itty bit of rain

and of course no power. Was out for a little over 2 hours. Although from what I understand there is still a lot of folks without it.

I'm glad mines back on!
