this evening has been terrible. my s-i-l has a (spelling?)shi-tzu, Perkins, he was 16 & in very bad health, couldn't even stand any more w/out having seizures. this has gone on for months & today she had him put down. my bro called me & said to come over after work because she'd be upset. well, i got there before them & when they drove up my bro was driving, my s-i-l was in the back seat holding him & my mama was w/ them. bro had already dug the hole before they went. bro & i got the box ready, cut some of his blankie & wrapped him in it, put his 2 favorite toys w/ him. OMG, that was so hard! ya'll, he was 16 years old! we all loved him. my s-i-l is pitiful, she said a piece of her died w/ him. they did EVERYTHING together! i brought a solar cross from work so we could mark his grave. i'm feeling really low right now. wish hubby was here!
((((((MerryMistletoe)))))) I can't tell you how very sorry I am for yours and your SIL loss ...I believe Perkins is all well again ..I am sure of it !! He is young again and will be waiting for his family ....I know how sad this is and how difficult ...I will keep you all in my prayers ((((Hugs)))

We just got back from my son's graduation and it was great! My daughter is a teacher at the college he attended and she was there working at the graduation. A lot of family came in town and it was good to see everyone.
I want to thank everyone for their well wishes to my son. It means a lot!
Guess what??? On the way home we saw a lit up Christmas tree in someones window!
I haven't had a chance to catch up on here but will be back on tomorrow to do so.
Goodnight my friends!

So have I!!! Okay, now, do you know of any good plays or old (great) movies on BlueRay? I bought two movies tonight so I can get them on my Nook Tablet and have something to watch during chemo. I did see It's a Beautiful Life and plan to get it after surgery.
You are right about a horse-drawn sleigh. That sounds so fabulous and romantic, especially one in the moonlight!!!

I haven't been able to think of a "tea version" of "javalicious." "Tea-licious" is just TOO obvious. "Cuppalicious"?
Oh, I would LOVE to go on a horse-drawn sleigh ride someday!

For that very reason, I have become VERY SELECTIVE about giving out my email. Then, you get a lot of spam, not the good kind in a can, but just plain ol' cr*p.

Does anyone else know what I am talking about...you go to a store...they want your email for coupons because you have kids. I like getting the coupons, but half the time, they just send me junk!

Hi everyone, just stopping in for a minute or so, hope you are all having a good day today. ♥ I have not replied much lately, but I read every one of your posts. I hope all of our members who do not feel well or have family members/friends that do not feel well get better soon, and that anyone that is stressed out can relax and have a good upcoming weekend. I am tired and caffeine-deprived, so I'm going to crack open a can of Coke and continue on my homework.
I used to LOVE The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. His stories could be so creepy because I could imagine their happening!!!
Which Christmas mysteries are you talking about? I would be interested because I love Christmas and I love mysteries.

I remember seeing it the first time when I was very young, and spending the night at my Grandma's house. I could barely fall asleep. We would always make popcorn, watch Hitchcock, and then listen to scary radio shows while trying to fall asleep. I think one of them was The Shadow. "Only The Shadow Knows" (insert evil laugh). My Grandma was the coolest.
BTW, has anyone read any of the Christmas mystery series? I have always wanted to, but didn't know which ones were the most recommended.
Well, I think I need some caffeine. Catch you guys later this evening =)
