Don't worry Seawaters, I thought it was stupid too. Some people are careless with their animals, it's sad.

I'm anxious to find out whether the shunt system was contaminated by the infection, because if it was, that might mean more surgery and a few weeks in the hospital. I'm going to see him on my way home from work tonight---hoping for good news.
Continued prayers for good news and a speedy recovery for Mr.

I usually take this week off, but one of my employee asked for it so she could go visit her sister in Mississippi, how could I tell her she couldn't have it. She is my best employee and she deserves it. I plan on taking the 3rd week in August off instead.

Well, I have to throw something out there...

My grandma's husband is in the hospital recovering from a surgery related to prostate cancer. My great-grandma went into the hospital last week. My cousin had her twins four months prematurely, and yesterday we lost one of my other cousins. So, my grandma has her husband, her mother, her great-grandbabies in the hospital, and lost a grandson yesterday. Prayers for grandma would be appreciated! She's an amazing woman and I have a tremendous amount of respect for her and love her dearly. It breaks my heart all that has gone on, and breaks my heart to see her with so much on her. She's strong and is surrounded by family, and she's one tough woman!

I'll move on but just had to give a shout-out to grandma because she's my hero!

Well, in spite of everything, I am excited about July 4th! We bought things for our annual cook-out over the weekend...and I can't wait to make some boneless beef ribs, brats, hot links, and some other stuff. Our neighbors come over, and we can see a great fireworks show from the front lawn. Moore is continueing on with the celebration and I think it's awesome for the community since this has been such a hard summer with the torandoes. Moore needs some fun and by golly we're going to have it Thursday come hades or high water!

Alright, sorry to rant. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!
She is in my thoughts.
