We have pretty much decided to stay here until the fall. That will allow me to get everything settled with my Cardiologist and my Optometrist. We will be taking 2 or 3 trips this summer, but only in the truck. Early July we will be going to Colorado for a week or so. Probably in August we want to go down and see my sister Dottie and her husband, Mark. We are trying to talk Herb and Willie into going with us to Paducah. The last time we were all together, we really had a ball. I would also like to take a week end trip to Indy. Haven’t seen my family there since we lost Uncle Boone. My cousin called the other day and wanted to know when I was coming back up to do some garage sales with her.
Want to welcome my two newest followers: Jessica and April. Jessica, and her husband, Harry live in New York and hope to start full-timing in 2013. Check out their site if you get a chance. I could not find a site for April, but if you have one, please contact me, and I will add it here.
Had to go pay insurance the other day on the truck, for six months, and the RV for a year. $1200.00 for the two. Will someone please explain to me why they keep charging more for insurance, but the value of your RV and truck keep going down? Why does your insurance payments not reflect this?
We went out to eat with Herb and Willie on Wednesday morning. Thanks again guys for a great breakfast. After we finished eating we went to Leitchfield, Kentucky where they hold a big yard sale, with approx. 40 people set up, and there is also 1 large inside flea market and 2 smaller ones. Donnie and I didn’t find anything, but Willie found a new piece of Carnival glass for her collection, and Herby found a car to add to his Jeff Gordon collection.
We right now are experiencing some very strong storms. No tornado warnings, but straight-line winds again. I knew something would be brewing because we have had some unseasonably warm weather. Almost 100 here yesterday. I sure hope this makes it cooler. Our air runs nonstop in this type of weather.
Want to share a couple of pictures of our tomato crop. We are so proud of them, and can’t wait to eat our first home-grown tomato.
I don’t know if you can see them or not, but there are little blooms all over the two plants.
I did receive some good news on the medical front this week. I have been going in weekly for a blood test to make sure my blood is at the right consistency, but now I only have to go in every two weeks. Also, my meds seem to be working better, with only occasional skipping of beats.
This week my beautiful grand daughter, Chelsi had a 16th birthday, but we didn’t celebrate till yesterday. She had several of her girlfriends out for a pool party and of course family and friends came too. There were probably about 30 of us.
In the picture is a shot of the pool, Mason with his garb on, Aunt Shannon repairing one of the girls suits, Taco the dog in her finest, Chelsi in her Hawaiian garb, Chelsi’s mom, Angie, Chelsi in first suit, she had 3 different ones on . The picture in the bottom right is Tony and his daughter, Leah. They are here for a visit from Calafornia. They will be going to England with Tony’s wife, and Leah’s mom in just a few months for 3 years. This little girl is only 20 months old and not only does she talk, she also knows sign language. I am very proud of these kids.
The picture on her cake is one I took when she was only a year old. It says “Help, Mom is having a bad day, dial 1-800 Grandma”. It was always one of her mom’s favorite pictures. They also spelled her name wrong, but it was a pretty cake, and tasted even better than it looked. Chelsi in second suit. I never did get a picture of her in her third. she received 2 new ones as gifts. The picture, center bottom is another nephew, TJ. He and his wife Susan, and two daughter, Kayley and Hannah were also there.
This is a bunch of pictures of everyone getting ready to sing Happy Birthday to her. Notice in the bottom right the little girl with a finger up to her mouth. This is Chelsi’s BFF, and you can guess what is coming next…. :)
Food fight between Best Friends Forever!!! At top right is my silly SIL, after a few beers…. :)
