Relay For Life


The Relay For Life is held here in Perry County on this up-coming week end.  I will be going out early on Sat. Morning to walk with the girls.  Chelsi will go with me and walk too.  There are always a bunch of booths that she likes to visit, so should be a fun time for us.


After all it is for a very good cause.  I hope you all will get out and participate in your area’s walk.

Want to welcome my dear friend Judie to the land of bloggers.  She is our friend from Alabama.  They are trying to decide if they are going full-time or if they will remain part-time travelers.  Please check her site out.  She and Dick are two of the nicest people we have ever met.

I also want to thank John and Bridget for turning me on to homemade laundry soap.  If I had known how easy this is to make, and how much money I would be saving every month, I would have done this years ago.  It costs roughly 1 cent per load, and it does a really good job on the clothes, and I love the fresh scent of it.  Thanks again you two!!

We also have another Birthday party this week end.  It is also on Saturday.  It is for my Great grandson, Mason.  He turns 4 this year, and is a typical little boy.  Wild as a striped-assed ape, and just as cute. Here he is last Saturday, threatening to spray GG with his water gun.


I also want to thank Laurie for the info she sent me about my ins.  I called and talked to them about my charges, but they told me the raises are because everything you have  to fix from an accident, keeps going sky high.  He says paint, parts, labor is all going up, so how do you argue with that?  He also said our RV and our truck will hold their value longer because of what they are, and how they are made.  Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but we all need ins., so must pay it. Again thanks, Laurie.

We are going over to Herb and Willie’s house tomorrow to play games again.  They have their grand daughter, Sidney and their grand dog, Boomer till 5:00pm.  After they are picked up we are heading out to Leopold, In. for a chicken liver supper.  We love those darn things, but don’t make a habit out of eating them.  They are so full of fat, but just got to have some once in a while.  There is a nice little restaurant there called Marcy’s.  We usually go out there at least once while we are home.

Gotta run and finish my laundry. Will catch you all later.. :)

Sounds like your having fun with the grand kids.

I have some ear rings made I just need to get off my xxx and get them posted.

Sounds like you are busy-busy! Good for you & Relay for Life! I love chicken livers too but hardly ever eat them. Enjoy your family & all the fun things you are doing!

Sounds like a very busy but good time. I know you are enjoying those grands!
We have the same questions with insurance and basically got the same answers. Gotta have it though.

Happy birthday Mason! I am with Judy on the chicken livers.

Catherine, Jo Beth and Grace said...

I love chicken livers. I was so glad when my older bros left home so I could claim the chicken livers for my own. :)

Rick and Paulette said...

Happy Birthday, Mason! I doubt I'll be eating any chicken livers soon.

John and Carol said...

I just love the picture of Mason. What a character.

Relay for Life is such a great cause. Thanks so much for participating.

Could you please share the recipe for laundry soap.

Thanks for the welcome, it gave me some more followers, appreciate it. Now I have to learn how to iclude their names and sites like u do got some more reading to do. lol I LOVE that description of Mason, sooo cute as is he. Also gonna search the site for the laundry detergent...need all the help we can get moneywise these days.
Dick would love to be going out with y'all, he adores chicken livers. I don't so he doesn't get them too often...think I'm gonna pick some up and cook them for him tho. He's been doing so much for me since I got sick. He's always been a good husband but he really picked up the pace when I got this diagnosis.
Hope u and Don r doing well today! Does Rusty get to get out and run full speed much? Killer gets out but it's been so hot that he's a couch potato like us. lol
Take care dear friend and enjoy all those wonderful trips u've got planned. Sounds like fun! Love ya!
