It Was A Winger Of A Monday

It was a winger of a Monday... it started off with me knowing I was going to have to make a call to Quest regarding a bill they sent me as they sent it to the wrong Insurance and of course it was denied...Surprising LOL

So my night sleep was not great..again I had it on my mind as I can never comprehend how they can screw up ..but they did and still at 8am I was no the phone and had to wait and wait..till finally by 9am I got a voice !

I again with through the nonsense of explaining my "new insurance info"...and as I asked .."how does this continue to happen"  I got the response which to me doesn't make sense..."it's because the orders from the Doctor come in with the insurance on it..."..

Now after the woman made the correction I had to leave to go to the Doctors for an Echo test..and there I asked regarding that.. and of course there response was, "that's not true"...

Oh! Again going in for the test I had to fill out the same forms I did last week..asking if I was near anyone or been to West Africa ???? Oh! also if I will be responsible to pay my bill...hahaha..Each time you go you have to fill this paper work out which is crazy....guess I just am too old to understand this type of reasoning...maybe I'm just not politically correct hahaha

Had my Echo test done and now I'm home till my next Doc appointment..other than we have that family get together in August and then in September I have Mammo, and Bone Density Test plus of course Pap Test..

Goodness time if flying..then I go back to my Cardio Doc and Internist then it's head to Florida if all is well..and I pray that will be...then I have all that Dentist Crap YUCKO!

Oh, the pool removal is in the works..we'll see how that takes place..

Here I Sit, Sunday Night

Here I sit, Sunday night...just finished watching Big Brother..doesn't anyone realize that all that scheming usually fails..that ole saying, "best made plans" mine have always been in Jello LOL so the giggle will make me smile..

Today was starting off great as Robert and I planned to go to breakfast in the morning to our favorite Greek Dinner but when he woke up he was feeling best not attempt it..

Most of the day was really a nothing kind of day...did a little looking up "Thanks Google" and also got in touch with another excavator to see if he could give us an estimate before we sign on the dotted line..

Kind of like this...anything less than 12K would be wonderful ...cause we only have 14 days and counting to get this all done..or other wise we pay a fine that adds up daily until it is completed..

Working on my 4th Afghan and it's just about finished have about 15 rows and then it's weave in the ends.. I have several I have to weave in too.. like 3 other I need to weave in ends for the dish rags I made to bring with me to the family get together which isn't  that far off...a little nervous...but also anxious.

Tomorrow I have to go to the Cardio Doc for that Echo test and then I also have to call Quest labs as it seems they keep billing my old insurance company.. I honestly don't know why.. I mean I've done this thing before..trying to get the info straightened back in Jan..

I don't know how people hold their jobs..they are so incompetent. It's a wonder all the records are ever correct..scarey !!!

So that's about it for now.. I'm brain fried and still trying to get this new computer squared away...soon ...soon..

Here It Is Saturday Night

Here it is Saturday night and all is well, so far...however......

This morning was a fun day...we had to head back up to where the motor home is being repaired and serviced at in Hatfield, Pa.. Why?  did you ask hahaha... well Robert forgot to take the bag of dog food out of her...

See, I know longer bug hubby as he claims..(you know how hubby's can be) so I didn't say a word other I check my list off..."Did you get everything out of the rig"...and of course hubby says, "What do you think ">? 

Now for me that can be a leading question and I really try to stay away from all that can and will bite me later I didn't bother to respond.

Hence we headed up this morning to pick up said bag of dog food, nice trip :)Weather was great too and we took Miss Annie for the ride and she loved that was fantastic..

Ok, getting back to my saga...from the trip home...

We got in and unloaded the rig..and I made my Doctor appointments and my numbers were that was a plus.. also the insurance company for the man that backed into me had called and he was very easy to work with..thank goodness...and life seems to be getting back on track..

Now coming home from the Doc's office I get a call from hubby telling me I received a registered letter and he picked it up at the post office..and it was a summons..????????

Panic I was...For what ???? Who would summons me..What did I do..where did I go ????? over the accident ?  When it wasn't my fault >>>>> Oh please tell me what in the world is this happening..

So hubby said calmly, "It's over the pool, we have 14 days to empty is or pay a fine of 1K per day till we comply "  ....OMG!  then he said, "there was a complaint registered with the township "... I had this awful feeling in the pit of my stomach...who would and why???

Well when hubby got home he then says to me, "it's our neighbor, as something was said regarding our pool being closed 2 years in a row"... now this causes me to turn beet red and speak in my native language.. "Italian.."  and if you know me..when I start speaking in an other language it's because I can't think right and only start perking and wanting to choke the S. O. B.

I mean I live not far from this jerk and if he has a problem he could knock on my door.. I'm not a monster..although right now I'd like to rip his tonsils out !

So the next day I go down to the township building and talk to the Township Manager and explain.. I'm 72 and not in good health and I can't use my pool by myself and my hubby is working long hours and exhausted and no longer can keep up the pool so we kept it closed and with chemical in it..(shock)  but because this is going to be an on going issue  I've decided to remove the pool..and I have an excavating company that is going to come in and do the job..

Now this is going to cost us 12K for everything..removal and fill.. something I wasn't planning on doing at this point in time.. and really not happy but I have no choice as this again like I said will be from time to time a major issue..

I felt like my insides were ripped out.. the township manager was really great in fact he as a kid use to come down on the corner of my house and catch the school bus and also with the group of kids have swam in my pool..

He felt terrible about the whole thing and I explained I wasn't blaming him ..the law is the law...however, my neighbor will have his share of aggravation as I'm a firm believer in Karma..he will get his !!!

So that was the next bolt of lightening to hit but I'm sure like always things for me happen in 3's...I don't want to think "what's next"  cause you know from following my blog...that can be dangerous..

Back to Saturday...

It was really a good day after all.. I ofcourse chuckled... I just couldn't that's it for now.. and I'm tired and still have to figure my new computer out.. I like it but again.. need to learn the ins and outs...but one good thing.. I'm posting and attempting to catch you all up on my madness..LOL

It's Been Awhile And It's Friday

It's been awhile and it's Friday and I'm back in Philly...Trust me when I tell you it's been one hell of a trip !! 

Started off..everything was I to Brunswick, Ga just fine and Robert didn't come up till the next day when I was in Latta, South Carolina...but on the way there I had a few little experiences..

First off ...left Brunswick, Ga just fine and had a good night sleep just me and Miss Annie and Ms Shug.. I managed well ...I mean walking wasn't the greatest but it wasn't the worst..

Then stopped in Welcome center in South Carolina as Miss Annie had to potty and so did I....took her out and made sure she behaved going down the I have to go down them backwards and using my cane for balance when walking Annie..she is really being good...

Go to come back to get in the rig and can't get the door open..????? What's with that ? and then it came to I was going down the steps I hit the bottom button and it locked down the coach...HOLY CRAP... I have no keys with me..nor a cell phone...Give me  a break !!

I didn't panic...but I looked around to see who I could get to help me..No one was near me..and all the truckers must have been sleeping...for their stop over..down time....and then I saw some woman and I called her to please help me if she could just call someone ..

She got the custodian and he came over then called a Lock Smith as he said, "the police no longer do that" waited for the Lock Smith..he came and opened the door..for 125 buckeroos..CASH ONLY... and I hadn't a clue how much I had as I don't normally travel with money just credit cards...and by George I had 135 exactly...

First time I ever used a locksmith and by the way... my insurance covers it cept I didn't get a receipt as he was going to the hospital his father was just taken in an ambulance...was it for real ???? who knows..but one thing I got in and that's all that was like 100 heat index..Me and Miss Annie wouldn't have survived..she was such a good girl too.!

Pulled out of there and got to Latta, South Carolina ...Flying J...and it was packed everyone lined up to get gas...and I got in line behind this guy with a pull trailer.. so I sit and wait.. a little upset I paid out because I didn't carry my keys...not beating myself up..

Next thing I look up and see this guy in the trailer starting to back up.. HUH???? and Yep! I blow the horn cause I can't back up.. cars and rigs behind me..and the guy keeps coming...HELLO you hear my horn ..???? BEEEEEEEP and then CRUNCH...yes indeedy.. he bumps into me.. his bicycle rack goes right into Mabeline's hood... I could feel the pain LOL..but oh my stars !!!

2 things in one day and the day isn't over...I get out and the guy fills up his tank pulls over to the side and comes over and says, "Did I hit you " ?????  HUH????  is this a dream ??? 

So I have my phone with me and take pictures and he does too..then takes my info and I take his... and away he goes... I pull up and get gas as Robert is still in Wildwood, Florida and won't be up till some time tonight...

I pull over to a parking spot and get comfy ..walk Annie to Ms Shug and then just lean back and shake my head... talk with sense in getting upset one was hurt just my pride..

Robert finally gets up around 9 pm and we get something to eat and then go to bed and in the morning we will hook up the car and head up to Carmel Church, Virginia...can't wait.

Next morning up we get and gonna top off with gas and head out.. I go to make a turn so Robert can hook up the car and go to put my foot on the brake and I have no brakes...OH NO !!! 

Tell Robert and he looks at me ...You got it !!  No BRAKES !!  So I call Foremost Insurance...they are sending a tow truck...and we wait and wait and it's hotter than hot.....finally some lady pulls up along side of me and asks .."Am I broke down" ?... I said, "YES" !   and she proceeds to tell me she's with the garage and my Insurance is arguing with the owner ??????

So I call my Insurance company and get the low down... I get it squared away and reason was..the garage owner wouldn't tow cause he could do the work .... ok, lets get this show on the road...

Sends two men over and they work on the rig.. brake line broke and they didn't have a part so they made one...HUH... works for me...but by the time they finished it was late in the day and my generator quit got over heated and vacuum had to wait that out till it cooled then we pulled back over to the same spot and parked for the night... filled the rig up again with fuel and in the morning out we went..

Made it up to Carmel Church, Flying J in Virginia...hello there..and stayed over night...left early in the morning to head to Rising Sun, Md to my girlfriends place then spent a few hours with her ..headed out and home we came..

I really cut all the drama out as I'm tired and too much and could I remember all the details..HECK NO... I'm just glad we all got home safely ...

I will continue with my story tomorrow as again I'm tired and it's past my bed time hooking up a new computer so I could write...LOL

So as it is..Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

A Blurr On Tuesday !!!!

A Blurr on Tuesday !!!!.....oh brother where art thou ?????  it was a whopper of a start off and then some... as we were getting things to go out into the rig... don't tread on me...or don't get in my way..Look out you #%^@...... yeah it was a happy day...

Morning I was up at 5am.. of course me and Miss Annie tip toed out the bedroom down the hallway and kept quiet..something we are not use too.. and boy I can't wait for Oct..hahaha... hate that tip toe crap !!

Anyway.... we was not in the greatest of spirits and between the rain and the heat...Why are we doing this ????  Well, have to till hubby retires cause there isn't any other alternative... I mean I can stay longer but still have to come back for Docs and Car and Motor home inspection till I change my driver's license and insurance...OY!!  don't wanna go there just yet ..

Tomorrow don't want to think about it..but we still have that check again list and the heavy sighing.. then when I'm ready to push off.. hope and pray no rain and may all things come together and Robert not roll his eyes and make those funny sounds and that strange few words that seem to trip through his lips..Puhleeeeeeeeeeeeeez!

So now it's bed time thank goodness.. and I'll say my prayers and next thing I know it will be morning...OUCH!

A Monday That Was The Beginning And

A Monday that was the beginning and the end as well.. One of our R V Sistahs lost her battle with Cancer today... so it was rather a sorrowful day... remembering Sharon and her radiant smile.. her wanting to explore the USA ..her laughter so real, her caring for others as well.. Today we lost a great person, and God gained another Angel..where now she's driving the Lord's Highway...she was too young to go, but perhaps her job (nursing) was done on this earth and she'll fill other positions..and as we both said, "We'll meet up again on the other side ".. God Bless you Sharon, we'll miss you !!

I had completed and Afghan that I wanted to send to her.. as when I began it, she was on my mind, and I saw this neat picture of Lilacs...and I thought, "how beautiful they are, their fragrance and how delicate they look...and also come out in the spring..when you see them and smell them, you do's a heavenly scent.. so I made this afghan in the shades of the lilacs...and thinking of Sharon..

For some reason, I couldn't find my tapestry needle..and I went several times to Walmart as that's where I had gotten it.. I wanted to get it out to her..and as I spoke with one of her friends and got Sharon's address she told me that it was Sharon's favorite color..another surprise..

But that didn't come into place as I thought I'd mail it from home as I am heading to Pa this week..and maybe I could surprise her..again that didn't come to pass..but as I spoke with one of my friends she said, "Perhaps this was for Sharon's Mom..perhaps it is... so I will as I head home finish this afghan weaving the ends in and send a note to her Mom..

My day of packing up is going ok.. my momentium is not there but tomorrow we'll get er' done... I went to put the slide out in the bedroom and it won't open.. called the RV dealer in Pa..and another surprised..they closed down and now are in Media.. spoke with the repair guy and he feels it's the I'll be pulling in there when I get home..

And all is well, now it's time to hit that bed.. and in my prays I want to thank God for Sharon, as she no longer is in pain and suffering.. she is at peace, and may God's blessing help her family through these rough times.. Letting go isn't easy..although we say, "it was for the best".. it's still hard on the heart..

What A Great Sunday !

What a great Sunday !.... Hubby and I took it easy..took Miss Annie again for a ride and breakfast..she had her treat and we had ours..came back and gave Ms Shug her let me say this, "if I had Shug's crate in the car..she too would have come along...hey, they is our family and Ms Shug and Annie, well they sold me out since the "Man" came in town ...LOL TRUE !!!

Most of the day we took it easy as tomorrow is the get the chairs in the wagon..although we did bring the motor home over to the house and plugged her in..but before we could do that we had WASPS Nest in the outside mirror cover and under the steps and underneath the wheel base where the cover for the tires are.. we think it might be the material in the covers that the WASPS like...oh man they were swarming...

Robert went to get some Wasps spray and when he came back I was inside the rig with Annie she and I were ok..air was on and we were relaxing as we watched hubby fight them buggers... oh they were swarming big time.. and I had the door shut .. I heard him yell, but I never opened the door.. I know I'm bad..but get this.. I'm allergic to beezzzzzzzzzzz and no way...was I opening that door hahahaha..

After that deal we then drove over to the house plugged her in and then came inside.. it's great being inside her.. I have always loved this coach..she was my Shangrala....and still is !!...

So we really just took our times today and enjoyed dinner.. Meatloaf made in the Crock Pot.. Baked Potatoes and Peas and Mushrooms in a garlic sauce..YUM!
Then we watched TV as Hubby laid on the couch and just relaxed..he needs it and so tomorrow we'll get all the stuff and start loading up ..Turn on the Frig and Freezer...

It will come together as we are not leaving till Wed and then it's on the way home and again I only drive so many hours a day due to me tiring out and for me it does get stressful although I never realize it till my legs are as big and tree trunks..

The feeling of going home is starting to come to life and with Rudy not being's a strange feeling also..but I know he's in good hands with Rose ..but sure to miss the big lug !!

Ok, time for bed as tomorrow is gonna be busy..maybe a few yells..but we will get it done...Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

Happy Birthday To The United States Of America !

Happy Birthday  !

Friday, July 3, 2015

We Were Wiped Out On Friday

We were wiped out on Friday....because hubby got in around 2ish (am that is) and Miss Annie went ballistic ...OMG!  I woke up from the noise as at first Miss Annie was growing big time..then it went to a Yelp, and then the bed went in convulsions ... literally with me in it !!

Annie was so excited it took her an hour to calm down for us to all got to bed and when I woke up at 5am it was like I was hit with a heavy hammer.. I mean I dragged around most the day and when hubby got up ..he looked like he suffered a hangover... but Miss Annie and Ms Shug once she realized her Daddy was home.. good Golly Ms Molly.. .it was unreal..

Most the day all we did was lay on the couches.. got up to go out for lunch came back and down we were was one of those.. WE AIN'T DOIN' NUTTIN' kind of days.. I mean it's because we couldn't..hahaha..

I'm happy he made it in safely as the storms were nasty last night for flying as well.. white knuckle kind of night.. and then the next day you're good for nothing at all.. so that's what we did..

I had made the French Dip for dinner.. that was really pretty good.. I got a recipe off the internet using the Crock Pot..In fact I have several meals made up from it.. vacuum sealed for latter date  :)

Even have a meatloaf done up for on the way home.. and a macaroni dish too.. stuff that can be put together easily and less work and only buy breakfast out.. I'll make up two pots of coffee and put them in half gallon milk containers so I can heat in the microwave and have my coffee..can't do with out it..

Tonight we watched Jersey boys.. I smile when I watch it as I knew the Four Seasons from when I was in my 20's ..we all knew the same friends. Small world you know..

Ok, time for bed and on with what tomorrow brings us.. Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

The Main Man Arrives On Thursday

The main man arrives on Thursday...sure enough.. Hubby comes in from Philly...although there was a plane delay ..he finally boarded at which means..he'll be here at the house midnight as I expected..

Morning was a little busy..and again the rains came.. and I just happen to be outside when the heavens opened up...Drenched I did get...should have had a bar of soap could have taken my bath....but I was DRENCHED!

My boxes are lined up in the hallway..looks like a train station..but it's not a lot of things but things we need to take back with us.. ie dog supplies, bird supplies and my meds and clothes and a few groceries.. hahaha..

No matter how we say, "we're not taking much back's always a bundle"..but the long ride cures us and some what we have cut back a good deal..but we still have that in and out, up and down ..and the long winding drive..

This time when Lord willing we come back I'm gonna stay till the end of July..and be home for Aug and Sept..visit my Doctors and tests done and then visit with my nieces if they'll have me..:)

Hopefully the next two times hubby will be able to retire and then sell the house up north..but we have decided to also still come back up north..Doc visits and visit family for those hot summer months Aug, and Sept.

Now I've got everything done up and ready to hit the bed.. Miss Annie is gnawing that bone and I sure hope when hubby gets in's not crazy like..but Miss Annie is sure becoming my protector...I can hear the yelling now..

A Wishful Wednesday

A wishful Wednesday..... again I made a run to Walmart to find that tapestry needle and NOPE!  they had everything else but looks like I'll have to get one when I'm back home or is hubby will drive me over to the JoAnn's shop which is near Sam's club...way other side of town.. I can give him the sorrowful eye routine ..but really I can do it when I get home..just that I made this Afghan for someone and I wanted to get it to her to cheer her up..

Morning for me..again, like I know some can't imagine but hectic..I have a routine I do and if that goes day goes as well.. I'm kind of limited on my pushing to the metal routine.. I have to get things done early or I'm done for..

Talked with hubby and tomorrow night he'll be here around midnight.. now that's wonderful and I sure hope he will relax a few days and then the madness begins.. the long drive home is the killer takes me a few days to get it together ..but I do pace myself..

Only thing is .. my Rudy is not with us.. now that will be a strange it is Miss Annie is really missing her partner..she so loves to play and with's short spurts I can't keep up with her.. but she is being really pretty good with me...every once in a while she gives me that look and takes off like a bat out of hell... I just sit and watch..LOL

I'm halfway through on this other afghan I'm doing ..the pattern is really nice and it just seems to move quickly... I do a few rows each time I sit back ..kind of the pattern is 4 rows and I do that 6 xs.. so I get a good chuck done daily.

I'm trying to come down with a cold..and I'm telling myself.. NO YOU ARE I'm taking Tylenol..and just making sure I'm drinking fluids..sure don't want one for the drive home..

Need to make a few things up tomorrow so I can have that for us in the RV when we stop for our meals.. that helps cause a lot of the times..the food out there is garbage.. only thing we buy is breakfast..

So now I need to get my act together and get to bed..tomorrow is gonna be busy and then from then on...OH MY STARS !!

A Few Surprises On Tuesday

A few surprises on Tuesday.....Now you know I'm always good for a few laughs no matter how you look at it...and this day was one of those..OMG!! 

Morning goings on is always a winner..Miss Annie got into the newspaper and there were tiny bits everywhere...but it happened while I was in the room and on the phone...:)~

I got a call from the Power Wash Guy.. (you all remember him?) well he had a problem..his phone some how erased all the numbers so he was calling to apologize and set up an appointment to do my home...LOL  It is what it is in Florida is all I can say .:)

So after I got off the phone Miss Annie must have heard the conversation and decided to throw a parade..hahaha.. but Ms Shug was screaming too.. yes!  I lost my control and burst out laughing and then after I vacuumed up that disaster I had to take a break.. a big break LOL

Later in the day.. I got another winning call..(this one be prepared...don't have any liquids around ..just in case :) ) was a collection agency ????? yeah???? Like why me ??? dunno but it was my lucky day.. any way ..make a long story short ..she was asking me.."if I was me and could I prove it ???? she needed my info before she could recite her poem. Of course I told her NO WAY.. and I would call them back.. she had to get the Supervisor on the phone and I called back but I googled just to make sure who they were..

Then we got into the crust of the call.. It appears that back in 2013 when I was in the hospital I was sent a bill and never paid it...?????  I explained.. any bills I received were paid and I had proof of that.. but for some reason they claim, my insurance company denied this one... HMMMM  so I gave her my old insurance number and she tried to call them but only got a claim number..

So then I asked what was this bill for ? .. Now hold on to your hats..

She responded.. "This was for the E R Doctor who treated me for my "Spontaneous Abortion"... I heard my self bust out laughing.. and again I asked, "What was that "?... she again responded..."My Spontaneous Abortion".. in other words folks my "Miscarriage"..hahahaha..

I then said to her, "Ma'm, do you know how old I am "?... she probably couldn't understand that question.. as there was a blank.. so then I explained... "You see, I at that date was 70 years old.. and it would have to have been the "Immaculate Conception"... I had had a Radical Hysterectomy in 2007 also..

I heard nothing for a bit then I heard her bust up laughing... Me too!!  Now serisouly I  know I was gasping as I laughed so hard... but hey, it was a good one.. then she suddenly said, "Oh, I'm so sorry"... hahaha.. "for what " I asked ?... the "Spontaneous Response "  hahaha..

It was such a funny day.. it was one of those classics..can it get any better..???? who knows..but I can't wait for tomorrow.. Lord knows what will happen next..

So that's my story for today... Hope and pray all goes well for the next few more shockers please hahaha...

Got everyone fed and I sat down finally for my coffee and toast and to listen to the news while I catch my breath...Took Miss Annie for a quick run to the mail box to send off my semi annual O&M so that's done for the rest of the year..

Then came back and took a quick run to Publix..picked up a few things and back home and it was lunch time..OMG..where does the time fly ????  but fed everyone lunch and then decided I was gonna take a quick run to Kentucky Fried...big mistake their food was awful..Oh well...won't I ever learn..make it myself..

Most of the day it was so hot and muggy you could barely what I had too..didn't vacuum as that would make too much work.. and as hot as it was..even with the air going.. I just will do it in the morning hours..

Then afternoon was through and before I knew it ..Dinner time..Again here we go.. everyone got theirs and I had Ms Shug out as after dinner she comes out and gives me her "what for".. and she's out till about 7:30pm.. then it's Annies turn... you see one in and one out..

A Day Of Nothingness On Sunday

A day of Nothingness on by that I mean..No Hard Labor..but I still have to do my normal chores..and so they got done..and so was I.

Morning was a Hot One..and as soon as I got done letting Miss Annie out.. I chilled out..did water my plants and clean the bird bath so my darling Crows could have a clean bath and my Cardinals had clean water before all stopped in to have theirs too..hahaha

Changed my Hummers feeder might do one more before hubby comes and then we get ready for the road trip back home.. boy that's gonna be a rough one with out my Rudy ... I sure miss him..but I know Rose is giving him a lot of attention and he's playing with his cousins LOL

Miss Annie is Queen BEEEE...and I do mean that..she bosses or tries to anyway ME...but not for long..but she is a sweetie and great company too.. Ms Shug is also getting much more closer to me..until Robert comes in on Friday..

My toe is coming along not so purple anymore and I'm starting to get that feeling of missing my home here.. it's not that I don't want to go home..but now home is here for me with all my critters and I have peace here.. I mean no traffic when I go to the stores and I can just relax.. watch nature..that's the most enjoyable thing for me... I think of my Grandmother and how she's be loving it here..

Well, tomorrow I have to really step it up a notch and gather more of my stuff together and put more away.. it's difficult because I am always working with setups for myself so my work load is not over bearing...but I have to start putting all that away and make sure hubby has that frig cleaned so I can have all these veggies and meats I have to put away..

Oh well, here will be another wild and crazy ride..and of course the long days waiting for him to come home to fix dinner..these are things that I have to now change back to his style.. UH OH..hahaha..

So now it's bed time and I'm so ready.. the heat was a whopper and the body needs to relax and sleep.. Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

A Much Much Better Saturday :)

A much, much better Saturday..:)...although I didn't go anywhere but to pick up my car and bring her back home..woo hoo!!!.... It was the shift cable ...thank goodness and only cost $276....could have been worse and they had the part in stock..another thank you Lord !!!...

Woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep..guess it was anticipation ...wondering is this was gonna knock my socks we all have had those happenings..

Miss Annie has been really good ..although I know she's lonely and keeps looking out the window..she misses that big lug...and so do I...I sure hope and pray he gets his act together and comes out kickin arse !!

Most of the day I sat and waited for the call and did a few things not much as when I let Miss Annie out at was hot and muggy...Lord help I only did a few things and then sat back and knitted on that new sure is coming out purrrrty :)

Then when I went and picked up the car I was gonna go shopping at Publix for a few things..but I thought...I can wait.. and come out on Sunday morning when stores are not packed.. and with the heat.. I didn't think I'd last that long ..I mean I was dragging and breathing was heavy..

I did my Viggle thingy and I maxed out a little after 1pm..not bad..and then I just leaned back with Miss Annie as she was wanting some attention..she got her lunch along with Ms Shug..whom by the way is now enjoying hers with me.. and starting to snuggle and give me kisses..till Robert comes next Friday then I'll be dust in the wind LOL

Ok, it's bed time..and I need to get a good night it's Hi Ho and off to Slumber land I go..

A Mad Dash To No Where On Friday

A mad dash to no where on Friday....well, I did start off to go somewhere and got there...but that was about all...

Morning was ....I gotta get to's not my favorite place to go ..but I was on a mission and I needed to pick up just a few things as really Robert (hubby) will be here next Friday....

So I got Annie fed and Ms Shug and then took my pills got dressed and out the door I to Walmart and got my usual parking spot and pulled in..put my foot on the brake, put the car in Park...took my foot off the brake and I was rolling backwards ?????? WHAT>>>>???????

Yeppers, so I then put the gear in drive to move up ..but I didn't move up I still went backwards..put my foot on the brake and UH OH!  I realized I could not get the car to go in drive or park was locked in reverse...OH HOW NICE....

So I turned the key off and stepped on the emergency brake and hit that blue botton..ON STAR to my Rescue !!  and they truly do too....they dispatched a tow truck and called the Chevy Dealer I use in Wildwood..

They told me the tow truck would be there in 45 I hopped out into Walmart and got a few things..but they didn't have my tapestry needle..which is what I needed...then got back out into the car windows open as it was hot..but of course..

Tow truck pulled up and he helped me climb into his rig...Big Step Up!!  and he hoisted up the car and away we went.. I had called ahead and asked about renting a car while mine would be in the shop...

Got there and everyone was happy to see me...Cha Ching !!... but seriously the girls in there are really sweet and they know me as I get my car serviced there.. and Paul, got me a car to use .. and away I drove..

Later in the day, Paul called again and said, "Car will be done tomorrow" so I didn't go anywhere just stayed home and knitted on the new afghan and the rest is history.. will find out what everything has costed me...but hey, it's only money and I can't take it with me  LOL

I'm tired and ready for bed.. just brain fried and some what disgusted ..but it is what it is... Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

Wishing Me Luck On Thursday :)

Wishing me luck on Thursday :)...that my trash gets picked up....and maybe I'll hear from the Power Wash Guy  who seems to have disappeared...or maybe washed away ????? LOL

Well, my trash did get picked up ..but nope, the Power Wash Guy still hasn't showed up...oh well, perhaps he meant "Next Monday"...who the heck knows LOL..

Warm day again and at 5am it's steaming before the sun comes up.. sure could use a blast of Artic  air...and Miss Annie is really being good.. better check as I hear her gnawing her bone..LOL

My day was just an easy does it day..cause if I don't get it all done by 10am.. I ain't moving..really that's how hot it have to stay in the house and keep cool..ceiling fan going and feet up LOL

Ms Shug is getting more talkative but I'm still not understanding some of the words she's saying..but I answer her back any way.. I mean she's sounding like a word I know..hahaha

So my day went ok, and that's about all I can say.. Tomorrow I need to make a run to Walmart..Lord help me.. I need to get a tapestry needle so I can weave in the ends to this afghan I made and also get it in the mail on Monday..

Now it's time for bed and I'm barely moving..Miss Annie is still gnawing on that bone..and hopefully she'll give it a rest when we turn the lights out..HOPEFULLY.

On A Whim, On Wednesday

On A Whim, on that I mean..perhaps my Power Washer guy will show up ????? but the long and short of it... He didn't :(

Morning again was steaming hot as I got up and dragged my body out the door sore toe and all... I don't think Miss Annie even wanted to go..but she had too...kind of nature thing !!!

Sat down and took my inhaler as I could hardly catch my breath..the air is so thick...which means .."Stay inside today"... and I did..after I watered my plants cleaned the bird bath some my wild birds could have fresh water and a clean crows come daily...they know a good thing LOL

Did a few of my setups up for Ms Shug and still have more to do tomorrow ...just moving like a slug...too hot to even think..and Miss Annie is really missing am I ...but it is what it is..:()

I started on my 3rd Afghan ..this one will be in shades of's looking good too and I increased the width a few more inches..I love the pattern easy to work on and I like the fact you make a border along with it in the pattern... nice and easy and only have to weave in the ends..

A storm rolled in later this afternoon.. a whopper of one ..lost phone and internet but Directv was up in no time.. when the cloud passes ..back it comes..but the other service took about an hour..

Tonight watched Big Brother.. not sure how this is gonna play out..but we'll see and played my Viggle and maxed out with 12K points and the best part is I don't know how I acquired them LOL...but with this.. when you rack up points you can get nice I'm watching I might as well earn the FREE word :)

Now it's bed time Miss Annie is gnawing on her bone and soon it will be lights out... hope her jaws get tired LOL..she had her snack..

Now Tuesday Was No Better !

Now Tuesday was no better !... The trash was still out at the curb and the power wash guy never came back... although like I said, "he did show up Monday morning before 8am and was suppose to come back between noon and 1pm..

So here we are no call, no show..but I did call the office and finally they sent a truck in and picked up around 1pm..and again another day goes by... hot and muggy and I had my toe throbbing..

Got some things done but didn't care if I did or didn't...but I kept my foot up when I could and I did finish that afghan..came out really nice the the lilacs..

My day was kind of drawn out but I wasn't gonna attempt to even change long as I was feeling ok, that's what mattered..and there's always tomorrow..

Watched some TV and Viggled ..a new thing..but hey, get points and get things without spending money..just for clicking on programs and big deal..have to watch them anyway..LOL

Now I'm ready for bed.. my toe looks like a plum..and as soon as it stops throbbing I'll be happy..

Started off with the guy that was to Power Wash the house came like 8am and was suppose to be here at I asked him how come so early ..but ok if he wanted to do it..then he replied , "I'll come back at 1pm then ..if that would be ok..." ?

Well, then I dragged my trash out to the my yard done and washed the dog patio and then fed Annie and Ms Shug...then I tried to gather up all my laundry...

Then I sat down to have some breakfast and nope toast, no corn muffin..but there was Strawberry Shortcake..HOLY CRAP... and I had that for breakfast...

So as laundry was going I cleaned Ms Shug's cage..she's such a putz..but I got that done she had to be out and give me my what fors and then where ever I was she had to be...Parrot on my Shoulder..!!!

Then it was time for Miss Annie to be back out ..where was my time for FREEDOM...not today...then it was lunch Annie her cookie and Shug her mixture of fruit and veggies..I again had another piece of..YOU GOT IT !!

Hello, where's my PowerWash Guy ?????? 1pm...2pm....3pm....4pm....5pm...uh oh..where's my Trash Men ???????  Hello Momma...I done got dune again..!!! called the Security and the last trash truck that means come tomorrow I call the front office ...bitch and have a truck come in and pick it up cause I ain't dragging it back in...Too Bad !!!

Oh, and my PowerWash Guy..didn't show up nor call...SUCKS...but I do know it was HOTTER than BLAZZES...but he called before why not now ????/ We'll see if he comes tomorrow with a good excuse..(I do need my house washed )

So then I fell into the state of... Chit always happens to I knitted on that afghan now I only have 3patterns to go plus 4 rows..and it should be fininshed all but for the weaving in on the ends..

Dawg Tired On Sunday

Dawg tired on Sunday.... we (me and Miss Annie) were on the road by 5:30am ..on the way to the dog show to see Rudy... talk about rushing around.. Got Ms Shug fed and I didn't feed Annie..took her water and big cookies with so she could have a snack as I wasn't staying all day..and Rotties were on early..

Car was loaded late Saturday with the dry food and in the wee hours of the morning I loaded the frozen food..Holy Hannah.. again my arms grew..LOL  we got out and hit the open road..

Got to the show grounds and parked behind Rose's rig and she helped me unload and she put everything up.. then we walked into the building and she had a crate there for Miss Annie... and I was so impressed with Annie..she was good !...but she did get excited to see Rudy...her partner in crime..the big lug !!

As for the show.. well, my Rudy showed great but the judge only saw one person ...gave him everything... so what can you say..."politics is in everything"...but one thing I was pissed about..that said handler..showed dogs that were sick.. vomiting and diarrhea..and to me that is disgraceful..and not right for everyone and the poor the ribbon that important ????

Got home and I was wiped out..long drive, long day and I just took a nap..Miss Annie was right along side of me...and then dinner time I went and got Chinese..didn't feel like cooking ..but we all ate and then here I sit..ready for bed cause tomorrow I have a busy day again..

Not only trash day but the guy is coming to power wash my house..and I've got to do some serious cleaning...OY !!!

WoW Is Me On Saturday

Wow is me on Saturday as I hustled to get my things done and food picked up for Rudy...

Morning again was ..Hello Momma..are we gonna lag or we gonna drag ????  Neither. I got my big panties on and just did what I had too.. I also made sure I got to pick up the kibble and cookies close to closing so I wouldn't have to unload, load and lug all that stuff in and out... also filled my car up with gas so I wouldn't have to do that in the morning and even picked up that script from CVS....I huffed and I puffed too cause it was HOT out there !

I was tossing about taking Miss Annie..but she's been acting strange since Rudy has left and when I leave her to long she gets to howling..which isn't cool..something I'm gonna have to break her of..

But because I'm leaving around 6:30ish in the morning I don't want my neighbors to have a fit.. I try and respect all .. and my dogs are usually pretty good ..I don't allow them barking a lot ..only if something is happening..

So I talked with Rose, Rudy's handler and asked if she had an extra crate I could put her in once I got there..she did..and there was no problem ..thank goodness..other wise I would have just dropped things off said "hello " to Rudy and had to leave.. wasn't crazy about leaving my car running with me in a building...some days I wished I had a smaller rig so I could just get up and go..oh well.. near furture...but I do love my big rig just too much for me to get ready and do things with..

Now only thing I have to do in the morning is feed Ms Shug ..load the box of cookies and unload the freezer into the freezer bags and put in the car.. and Miss Annie will be anxious to take that ride..

So it's off to bed I go ..get some sleep...and on with tomorrow.. sure hope the big lug behaves..he didn't today... What's with him.?????

I Splashed On Friday...:)

I splashed on Friday :)  sure did !  It was hotter than hatties too..and I got out around 10ish and then stopped by the vet's office picked up flea meds for Annie and Rudy then hit Publix..then stopped in at Sparr's bought the Kibble and cookies and left it there for Saturday late in the afternoon this way I won't have to unload and reload my car..have to stop at CVS too..and then home..

Morning again being it was gonna be another hot one I tried to get my chores done way was I wanting out at noon time..but I did manage to get home by 11:30pm...and that was my day...

Got Miss Annie settled after she had a bout with the howls ..she doesn't like being left and she's so use to traveling with she comes if I'm just gonna pick up my mail or going for a Hardee's but with it being so hot I don't like to take her out much..

So hopefully she'll settle down as I really don't want to take her to the dog show..I'm gonna leave around 6:30am takes about an hour to get there not really sure where I'm going but I'll use my handy dandy travel mate..LOL

Tomorrow I just have to go over my list making sure I've got everything ready for Sunday morning..also I will only feed Ms Shug and Miss Annie will get a cookie..I'll feed her when I get back..she will be pissed I'm sure..

I will be only gone about 4 to 5 hours and she will be fine.. I mean if I had a Doc appointment I'd be gone that long too.. plus I always stopped at the store on the way home..

Yes!  I'll be a worry wart..because of my nature..but being home in AC better than worrying about letting my car run while I go inside..that don't work for me..:(

Most of the day I was just putting things up and starting to make a list of what's coming back home with me to Pa..sure gonna be missing that big lug.. only one brat plus a feathered brat..OMG..this will be something new for me.. in all my years..

Now we are ready for bed and I will need another good night sleep.. one thing.. Miss Annie is certainly getting to be a great sleeping partner..oh I hear the thunder..YIKES..!

I Didn't Go Fishin On Thursday :)

I didn't go fishin on Thursday :)  Nope!  I had several things I wanted to get done today and only one got completed.. I had my plans (always in Jello) and when CVS called and said, "My scripts would be ready tomorrow "  well I thought to myself.. why go out today when I can get it all done tomorrow..

That sounded great right ????  well, later in the day the pharmacist calls and lets me know that the script won't be ready till that meant I could have gotten a lot of things done but didn't..

Morning is always a hoot here as Miss Annie is now being a "lady"  (i'm sure just for a short time ) and Ms Shug is being the "BRAT" and then there's me..who by the way is the "Saint" hahahaha... I thought I would just put that in there...NO WAY :)~

So I worked on that Afghan that I should have gotten done but didn't.. so I guess you might say, "I'm procrastinating.."   Big Time...and my clock is running out of time as the hubby will be here July 2nd midnight..hmmm might turn into a pumpkin hahahaha..

Most of the day... by the way it was a scorcher..and only went out to water plants and feed birds and pick up the deposits Miss Annie left me.. :(..and then back in the house sucking up the AC...

But I did do up Miss Annie's chicken.. I ground with my little Ninja 3lbs of chicken thighs and wrapped them in press and seal then put them in a container then into the freezer...and I've got 6 more lbs to do ..but I'll do that in a couple of days..need to empty the freezer..which I will on Sunday as I take Rudy's food to Rose..

Now I did Viggle tonight and my Ipad was giving me the "what fors" and I have to figure out why ..but right now I'm ready for bed..will call Dawn back and then it's tuck in for the night and on the road tomorrow to do that shopping I needed to get done today..ugh !!

Alrighty Mighty It's Wednesday

Alrighty mighty it's Wednesday and I'm still huffing and puffing but getting some things done..not much mind you as I have a lot of interruptions..called attacks of lazy dazy days..

Morning again was ..ok, I'm up and I've got to write a list so I can get going in the right direction...seems without it I stray...right to the couch LOL...nah!  I just do the wrong things and then I turn around and look I need to get those things done and they are piling up.

Was a hot one too.. I mean stepping outside was a really slow process ..takes my breath away and when I come back's like freezing although I never turn the temp down's the same setting since I came in the house in Oct..both winter and summer..same setting..

Did manage to make a shopping list as I have to get things ready to take with me to Orlando on Sunday to see Rudy and give Rose all of the food I have left here for the big boy.. sure am missing him.. I'm praying he starts getting his act together and pays attention to get going and gather them points so he can come home.. you know.."home is where the heart is " :)

Miss Annie has sure been sucking up the attention and is getting better although when I say that she looks at me and look she I'm saying it in print no longer vocal LOL

Robert went to see the Doc in Philly and they are all surprised how his tumor is shrinking...YES!  Shrinking and they want to do a study on him as they can't explain it..without radiation or medication... so God is sure good and all those prayers sure help...

Now I'm beat and tomorrow I've got to put some steam on and get my stuff done and go to the store and pick up only what I need..close my eyes as somedays I could buy anything LOL

I'm Ready On Tuesday :)

I'm ready on Tuesday :) for the guy to come and power wash the house and clean gutters..get the house looking cleaner on the outside...and even get my windows washed...I'm sure it will sparkle LOL

Morning again, I'm on an attempt to get more things packed away.. well, the thought is good..but not sure how much I'll get through... once the temp climbs I'm on the down hill slope..

I watch every afternoon the biggest crows I ever did see ..they come and take their afternoon bath and I'm telling ya they enjoy it and I'm smiling watching them...

Annie is kind of settling down somewhat although she still looks for Rudy and so do I ... I sure hope he gets his act together so he can come home...I really never wanted to have another show dog..not only because the cost is ridiculous but him not being home.. SUCKS !

However, Rose is really great with him and cares and that to me is well worth it..but like I said, "I'm not into this anymore, but I'm keeping my promise"..wonder how many other people would have ?????

I'm almost finished with my Afghan and today I also made a decision to leave a group.. I'm not into cliques and when there is one, I really don't like it.. I don't like seeing other people ignored and so for me.. I like including everyone..

As you can tell I'm not into Social Who's Who...and if all are not treated equal well then I'm history rather than blow up and speak how I feel..not worth the nonsense..I do like a lot of the people so I'll just leave it at that.

Now I've also been Viggling..LOL  get points for watching shows and at the end you can cash in for some decent why not.. and it's kind of neat but wow a lot of knowing what's worth it.. but I'm learning  and when it's free..hey we all like free stuff :)

So it's my bed time and I'm glad too.. tomorrow I have to write my list and get things done.. I'm in a a big push and Get Er Done ...

Oh YeahI It's Monday :(~

Oh Yeah! It's Monday :(~.... this day has always been a tough go..we get up with a..Crap! It's Monday attitude and the rest of the crap day follows..and for me it was a race day.. like I was running at's a New York Term...and you run that race too..

Got up, got Annie and Shug fed..watered the plants and gave fresh clean water to the birds in the bird you know I have visitors daily taking their baths.. these crows are so big and they do so enjoy that plunge..the whole troop.

I got out and went on over to Walmart as I needed to get the chicken for Rudy and Annie and had to pick up a few things as well..a few things they were out of like my vacuum seal bags..good thing I had two boxes under the counter.. I stock up on them when they are in as I do a lot of that with Rudy and Annie..

Got home and I was so glad as the heat index was over 100 and it felt it too..On days like that here I get my crap done in the morning and just lay out or should I say, "Veg out".. and that's what I did..

I need to pick up that Afghan and get that finished only lack two stripes..then I need to weave in ends with the other Afghan and start working on finished the ends on all those dish rags..ugh!!!

MOst my day I was just leaning back and put up Rudy's chicken so I can bring that to Rose on Sunday also need to make sure I pack his Heart Worm Meds and Flea Meds as well and pick up 2 bags of kibble..the car is gonna be packed again LOL

So tonight I did the Viggle thingy...and now I'm up to 300K points..I'm getting there ...and watched a little TV ..So You think you can dance..and now I'm ready to call it a night and Miss Annie got her night snack and she is now in bed..

A Good Sunday

A good Sunday, I mainly just did a few things and waited for my call as to how Rudy did...when the call came I got flashed the ribbons..he went it was the last show and for the 4 days..he got Reserve 3 times and Winners Dog and Best Of Winners ..not bad for his first time out with he goes to Orlando for those shows and hopefully he'll be a little more assured and he will realize that nothing is gonna happen and Rose is their to protect's a mind thing with him right now..and he'll get a lot of attention and love from her..

My morning is always full of surprises..Miss Annie is becoming a sweetheart really and also doing her best to perform for me..she's a hoot..and Ms Shug, well she's into her own thing right now hopefully they'll all get back to the NORM :)

I can't believe this week flew by but it did and now tomorrow is Monday >>>Yikes!  Trash again and I have to go to the store and pick up a few things and then gather a lot of Rudy's stuff as I will bring that to the show on next Sunday and I'll give him a big hug until I see him in Oct...that's gonna be a tough one but at least Rose will keep me posted and I'm sure she'll send me a few pictures and videos..that will all help..

I also have that family reunion coming up in August that I'm so excited's gonna be a good year and that makes my heart feel good too..!.. Now I'm trying to gather things in the house I'm gonna take back with me and also what's staying..

Tuesday I've arranged for the house to be power washed and I must remember to call for service on my AC/Heat Pump it's due for it's 6mos service as well.. so i'm ready for bed and on to tomorrow Lord willin.

What A Saturday

What a Saturday....started off waking up again wee early then from their my thoughts were on my Rudy as he was showing again today... Last two days he was having problems...not that he didn't go around the ring ok..but standing for examination ...he was not happy...then that day he got Reserve...the next day which would be Friday he stood ok, went around ok...but it was like he had ADD..his head was looking all around..any noise or movement he'd follow with his head..again he got Reserve..

Well this morning a little after 9am my phone rang and it was Rose..letting me know how Rudy did...which by the way she never calls me usually tested and then we'd talk later in the day..not this morning..and I thought ..OMG! now what did he heart was in my mouth and I heard her say, "He Won, I got to go"...hahaha...

I took a deep breath and I could feel the tears come down my cheek..YES!  Now I couldn't wait to hear all about it..but I had to call my hubby and Jerry, one of Rudy's breeders as Nancy his wife was at the show and Kim was also at the show..HELLO THERE..Then I called my hubby and then my friends.. I was so was like my very first..

I guess it also was because I was so worried.. I just wanted him not to be frightened and show..didn't care about winning..although we all like to win..but it was I wanted him to work with Rose..this was all new to him and he had a bad experience before with being ill and confusion..

So that started my morning and I just glowed the day through and I felt a huge load leave me.. now for him to continue on this path of liking it..and wanting to compete... Dogs do get that attitude..they like the thrill as well..once they like it !

Hubby was home fixing our fence..and I thought..Oh NO !!  it's hot and he's doing it by himself.. so I called to check on him and just remind him..doesn't have to be done in a day..take your time plus we will only have Annie home and he can still work on it once we get home.. now I worry about him ..don't get hurt..Lord help us !!!

Tomorrow Rudy shows again..and it will be at 9am they go on ..and it will be after 10am that I will hear anything ..and of course I'll be praying he just shows as well as he did today...then we get a break till next weekend..and we do this all over again..but this time I will be going to the show..

I need to bring Rudy's food and heart worm med and flea med as I won't see him till he's finished..Good Gravy the house is gonna feel so strange..LOL..but I know he will be in good hands and anything wrong I know Rose will do the right thing also she will be in contact with me..that makes me feel better although my heart will miss the big boy...he's such a gentle giant..

So my day was buzzing with excitement and also missing giving him a big hug..but I have Annie and she is such a hoot..she keeps me popping..hahaha..but she's been a lover who knows ..this might also be good for her..but I pity Rudy when he comes home...She's gonna give him what for !!

Ok, I'm tired and tomorrow I have to go to the store but after my phone with that..Those that are traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

It Was Up And At Em On Friday

It was up and at em' on Friday....however, my at em' didn't show up.. I think it went some where over the rainbow...I did wake up at 3am and then came out and lay down on the couch..forgot to call hubby to wake him up instead he called me on his way to work..HELLO THERE :)

Rudy was shown again today.. he got Reserve Again..Oops I didn't tell you Thursday he got Reserve also.. any way he showed a lot better but picked up another new habit... looking around..guess he wants to see if anyone is watching him...but he's showing and that's we'll see what tomorrow brings in..

Today because I didn't have a great night and I was so off, I just paced myself and when I got tired I sat down..getting done but not as fast as I'd like..but I'm getting there too...

Robert's flight is booked for the 2nd of July and will arrive here around midnight..and most likely he'll sleep all day the next big deal .. in fact that's why I wanted him to come down earlier so he could lay back and relax before our journey home.

I did manage to grind more chicken up for when I go shopping I need to pick up several more package for her...also I need to pick up chicken for Rudy...

Made a decision to leave Rudy with Rose while we go back home so he can be shown and hopefully get his title..he's starting to bond with her and if I take him back we might be going through all this when I come the best way is to leave him and get him either when I come back or when she comes up to Ohio and he's finished.. I sure will miss the big guy..and so will Annie.

Now I'm like just trying to get the rest of my chores all done and I need to start getting a little more energy...Lord knows I need it.. then hopefully Clancy will let me know who is going to take care of my plants.. this also worries me...I'll be so glad when my friend Mary moves down..I've already hired her to take care of the plants and check the house..

So with that.. I'm heading to bed brain is tired and that means I'm tripping over my fingers hahaha...dragging would be I'm slurring my words hahaha

Out With The Trash On Thursday

Out with the trash on Thursday I went LOL...again like I keep saying and so hard to believe...that I feel like Santa's helper taking my trash out... where does it all come from..only me, two dawgs and a bird...not just any bird..a Ms Shug !!

By the time I get back inside I'm huffing and puffing and I ain't blowing any house down....I can barely speak ! I take me a few minutes break and then it's on to the next level..

This morning I was hyped as Rudy was being shown for the first time with a new handler for him..and she's really sweet and loves the she's had Rudy all week and they have been working out pretty good...but being at the show I was somewhat nervous..

So I counted the moments and then I got her text..Rudy got reserve and then later on she contacted me to tell me what was happening with Rudy... his nerves got to him.. he moved ok, but she had problems stacking him.. he would lean into her and then not want her to touch him to setup.. WoW is me..he needs work and re assurance that no one is gonna do anything to him...

That kind of upset me..but the last show which was in January circuit I was not a happy camper..not one bit of how he showed and acted and also the mass confusion and to top that off him being sick too..

I didn't really want to be back into the dog shows as me not being able to show my own dog..but I agreed to it in the purchase of Rudy so I am a person of my word, so here I am now back into this game...and not being able to help drives me bonkers..

I have faith in Rose that she will be able to turn this situation around and get Rudy on the right again tomorrow I'll wait to hear how he does..I pray he'll improve slowly and realize he'll be ok..

Sucks ! ...However, life does go on in the big city...and Rudy is young thank goodness so lots of things can change..and making it fun is the most important part of it...

My day kind of dragged after that news and I was just gonna take it easy and give Miss Annie and Ms Shug their attention..but my mind was elsewhere..

Tonight I watched a little TV, not much really as I was looking up some data for another project...almost finished with this latest afghan and then I need to step it up and get my house done..

I have set up for the house to get power washed next Tuesday then I need to set up for Suter to come out and service my AC/Heat Pump then arrange to have DirecTV turned off and also Bright House too for when we leave for Pa..

Time is sure flying now and soon we will be loading up the rig to head out on the highway.. YIKES...but yep, it will be here before I know it..

Robert is scheduled to fly down on the 2nd of July in the evening so that will give us an extra day to get more done and together..thank goodness..

So those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All..

Did I Whip It On Wednesday ?

Did I whip it on Wednesday?  that feeling of gloom...well, kinda sorta, I mean I attempted too...but I'm getting better as I look out my big front windows and enjoy my outside plants and all that enters in my garden...I will manage as I know I'll be returning Lord Willin in Oct..:(

Again my morning was strange... I just seem to lose that get up and go more like get up and went somewhere ..perhaps over the rainbow (as long as it's not the bridge ...ssssshh)...but it's that feeling that I've got to get things packed and close the house down and get ready for the hubby (Robert) to fly in on a mad dash and the wild action begins..step to the side or you may fall..and I've done enough falling thank you very much !

Also thinking about my Rudy, as he will be showing tomorrow through Sunday..which i'll be there to see him on Sunday..too much for me right now to go to Tampa every day..but I'll wait anxiously to hear how he's doing and if he behaved.. this is a big turn for him as he was use to showing with Randy and Rudy is drawn close to the male image..being Jerry played with him as a baby and then my hubby (Robert) also played with him when we got this is a big change for Rudy.. but I do have confidence as Rose works with him and gives him that one on one attention..bonding..

Later today we had a Whopper of a storm blow in.. goodness it got so black I started to worry and the winds came in strong..then the power went off and so did my phone and internet.. TV went out with the we sat back and just curled up and waited for it to pass..

I did switch on my cell phone on it's own power and checked the was scary...but thank goodness it was fast..however the power was out for an hour..and then after that I went out and fed the birds...they swooped down as soon as I moved away from the feeder..

Got everyone fed and I just relaxed.. when I get tense like that with those takes me awhile to get it back together.. that's usually when I get a slight hit from Angina... and I did.. but again I rested and prayed I didn't have to use any meds..

Tonight I did up some ground chicken patties for Annie.. from the boneless skinless chicken thighs.. she really is doing much better with her tummy.. and I don't worry now with her not chewing..that always freaked me out.. this is safer..and as soon as Rudy is able too, I will also put him on the ground chicken as well.. perhaps do a mixture of pork, chicken and beef.. with his kibble..

Annie got her night snack..some rice with pumpkin and a ground charcoal biscuit.. she loves it and it does well for her too.. now she's waiting till I give her the OK, to come into bed..that happens when it's lights out.. she's really a great sleeper now..gets her spot and out she goes...

So it's that time for me to say..."Those traveling Stay Safe and as always God Bless Us All "..:)

Roundup on Tuesday

Roundup on I attempted to gather more of those things called plastic containers... I hummed the "fair thee well " tune...till next October...I was gloomy...but I managed another box filled..

Morning for me was a drag to get up.. I wound up staying up too late..don't know why but it was close to 11:30pm before this ole gal jumped in that bed..and me and Miss Annie didn't get up till 5:45am..she was as bad as I was and Ms Shug probably was wondering.."Where are they" ????

Most of the day I was in an out of the "What's next and where do I go from here"..but I made it to the end..thank goodness...but I did get a sneaky hit of angina..something I don't do much of..thank God...but it came on and stayed for a bit so I rested.

I also have been noticing my urges of hunger lately..something I'm not normally doing but for the last two days...Open the Frig and get out of my way's a fact Jack!!

Tonight I watched America's Got Talent..a show that has so many strange but some interesting acts..and some really awesome..from one extreme to another but you know, we need those type shows..

Now I'm ready for bed.. Miss Annie finished her night snack and she'll be hoping in bed and it's lights out and on to tomorrow...

My Trash Day, Monday

My trash day Monday....and I was ready for it too.. I mean I had so much...but I want to know...How does 1 person acquire so much ???? I mean I always feel like Santa's helper..hahaha

Again I got up wee early..not sure why..perhaps I'm a tab bit nervous as my Rudy is being shown this week.. I know he's in good hands...however, I just always worry... it's my big boy has been having some training and his handler, Rose, really does a great job..I just hope and pray he behaves and those two work together..

Got up and dragged me ole bones into the kitchen...I'm not as achy but I will say this, the other night after taking my shower I got a good look at my bruises..HOLY MACKERAL... my right boob looks like an Eggplant ...NO CHIT!

Didn't realize I got such a whack..but when I think of it.. I fell smack dab right on my chest.. I mean like lean me forward with force will ya ...LOL  so now I best stop that crap.. seems like once a year I'm in for a about a fall for my hubby when he comes down.. instead of the ground ...PUHLEEEEEEEEZ!!!

Packed up one box of plastic.. yes! I cried a few tears...but I've got more to go and I need to start getting myself in some action.. I mean one box does not make a dent..but it is a start....but I need to do more than those little chores..

I did clean out the frig and also did grind up some chicken for Miss Annie.. she no longer gets with bones cause she don't chew..she gulps and that scares me.. so now I buy boneless skinless chicken thighs and eventually I'll put Rudy on it too..but he needs the calcium and marrow.. and he does chew !!!

My little Ninja does a great job ..I do up a few days at a time..but eventually I'll do a few weeks at a time.. perhaps when I get back down in Oct..right now this does ok for me..with all my setups going.. I'm telling ya that plastic does come in handy.. from Ms Shug and her breakfast veggies, her lunch and dinner.. Rudy and Annie's Breakfast and Dinner... lunch they get that big Lunch Cookie.. things are coming along..

I have setups after setups.. no chit.. I mean to tell you.. Robert keeps saying, "write it all down"....hahaha.. but he'd never follow it.. maybe a few things but not all.. one week and he'd say, "Screw this".. hahaha.. it does keep me busy maybe that's why I can't get all my other chit done..

I am getting Ms Shug to eat a few more different things...she's a tough bird and spoiled.. like the book says, "they are like two years olds "  she throws fits every now and then if she don't get her way.. like tonight she got pissed at me and starting her chanting... now that's the time I can send her flying through the air... jet propelled too !!!

Watched a few shows tonight.. like that So you think you can dance.. there are some talented young bones ached after watching a few of them.. I can tell them this.. when they get old.. look out her comes some heavy arthritis ..I know, been there ..

So now it's time for bed and I'm ready to let Miss Annie out from her crate as she devoured her night time snack.. some rice, pumpkin and crushed charcoal, mint, parsley cookie...yeah she's spoiled too..
