Hello MMCers!

How are all of you? Missy and I are fine. I don't recall the last time I posted in this page (sorry!) but since then, I've been working for the Bureau of Unclaimed Property, Missy and I celebrated 1 year of being "mommy and furdaughter", I'm still active in the Transplant Games (headed for Houston next summer!), and in a long-distance relationship with a great guy!

Good morning, friends!!

Just a quick hello, thinking of you all.

Harlowe seems to be doing better today, thank you all for the thoughts & prayers. Please keep them coming! <3

We had a nice visit with our friends yesterday, but Harlowe didn't know what to make of the big dog that came with them =] He is a very sweet golden retriever, but was a little too rambunctious & frightened her, I think a lot has to do with his size, too. Add not feeling the greatest on top of it, well... we were going to keep him outside, but it was 95 degrees & 100% humidity, so he needed to come in.

All in all, it was a nice day.

I am still catching up here, and will be throughout later this afternoon & evening. Sending lots of hugs to you, Christmas buddies. Take care!

Have a blessed day!!

This made me laugh. I have such fond memories of watching the ORIGINAL Star Trek, LOL!!! When my kids were growing up, I watched the re-runs!

Goodluck job hunting, I hope you will find something that you like soon.



You must be so worried. Have you taken her to the Vet? I'm praying for her recovery and health.



I bet it all looks really lovely, the weather has been strange everywhere.



We turned our heating on last night for the first time in months! It is chilly in mornings and at nights these days.

Good morning!!! Hope you all are doing well! Not much going on at work today. Usually Wednesday is my slowest day of the week....could be a looong week! (at work!) It is already super hot & sticky outside so I'm happy to be in the AC (and wearing my sweatshirt! ) I wore a tank top for our morning walk today - Sept. 10th & still wearing tank tops at 5:30 am! That's unusual!!! We might have ice cream for supper tonight! Hubby won't want anything warm after working outside all day!! And I haven't been to the ice cream store in town alll summer & it's about to close for the year! EEK!!!!

Make it a great day!

I see the book you mean, CAH. That is so sweet of your granddaughter!!!

My granddaughter is looking over my shoulder and said, "whos house is that"? I told her a friend. She said, "I want to go over there"! Ha ha! I think she likes those books!

I decided on my way home from work & after going outside with Buster, that I am going to sit in my recliner in the AC, candles are burning & watch a Christmas movie & pretend it's not 92º & miserable outside. LOL! It feels SO HOT & muggy!!!! Anyway I am going to watch "How About You" - it's a free movie with my Amazon Prime membership. I never come home from work & sit down, so I'm looking fwd to this!

"Based on a short story by Maeve Binchy, Ellie is a free-spirited and headstrong young woman left in charge of a retirement home over the Christmas holidays."
It's too darn hot!! =]

The movie sounds really good! How was it?

The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew was one of my favorites along with The Bobsey Twins! I started reading the Peppers because of a book report Irene Morgan gave when I was in school (4th grade) over 50 years ago!!!

I hope you have de-stressed by now, Meceka. I hate days like that, especially when you have no control on what others say and do! Take care, my friend. You work so hard!

What a busy few days I have had! Stressed out family members, somebody else's book checked out to me at the library, migraine, work, shopping and garden produce pretty much sums it all up. Migraine is gone - yay!!!! Today was laundry day and I am also trying to catch up on all the things I did not get accomplished over the weekend, including the forums here. Missed all of you!!! I will be in and out for the next few hours.

Be MERRY!!!!
