Thank you! The headache went away, but I've had "brain fog" all day. I'll try to relax this evening. We were on the go all yesterday evening. We got our cellphones and plan updated, but the provider's space at the mall is a glorified kiosk---so we had to stand while looking at phones, discussing plans, shopping for accessories, etc. Didn't get home until about 9:30 or 10.

Wow! I've never "met" a famous racehorse in person before---it must be a thrill to get close to one.

Kinda makes you feel like a kid again, doesn't it? lol...
Wow, that IS etched in your brain! Those are the lyrics, all right!
The voice of good ol' boy Phil Harris as O'Malley!
Darnit, now I'm going to have to drag out the LP and listen to it again! Maybe I should digitize it while I'm at it so I can have MP3s.
The LP actually has other Disney cat songs on it, too. A while back I found an MP3 of one of them---Louis Prima singing "That Darn Cat."

After running a couple of tests the doctor decided he wanted him to go straight in to a hospital in the city where he would be able to see a specialist. I don't have all the details because as of last night they were still waiting for more test results. All I know is he has some kind of blockage and is having a procedure done this morning. My mom and brother are taking a ride back in to the city to be there. As soon as they get more information they are going to call me. His doctor here was very concerned about how bad the circulation was in that leg. So if you could please send up a quick prayer for my daddy I would really appreciate it xo

I know pride is seldom a good thing, but I'm proud of my lawn in the pecans when it all finally comes together. LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!
the image I have of your place is similar to a Plantation house w/ the pecan trees lining both sides of the drive....

Enjoy the day!!!
I can't believe it is warmer in Massachusetts than is Southern Ga but today is one of those rare days ! We are 65F and did not get out of the 60's today with cloudy wet conditions! I like neat things like that! Glad you had good weather today it was perfect for a day off!

Good afternoon all! I am about to warm up dinner...grilled sausage and inions and peppers and cabbage. And grilled hamburgers... I loves my red meat and pork! It was a dreary day here and will be tomorrow and Saturday which perfectly fits my mood here lately so it's all good! I hope everyone is having a good mid spring day! We are almost there at Friday! Brandi has 2 weeks and 1 day left of teaching. we are getting down to the wire...This Saturday is the Spring Graduation for the local University here which drawls a lot of people to town..it's hard to think there summer is already beginning with the weather so cool here! but it is...well have a good evening everyone I will probably be back after I eat sometime tonight!

I'm eating very healthy this week, but Saturday will be my cheat day. I mean I'm going to go on one heck of a BBQ bender! The amount of ribs and hot links I will consume at that place will possibly make women turn away and cause children to cry. It will not be for the faint of heart!

Okay, sorry...just a little excited, if you can't tell. Ready for this school to be over and the fun summer to start.

I hope you all are having a great week! I might show up to the Pines tonight and start my bender a little early...
