Thanks for the prayers guys.
Oh, that's awful. Hunker down and stay safe.

Finally, around 3:00 am, the downpour subsided, and I took her out. Feel so bad for her, but these things will hopefully become normal to her after awhile.

Thanks for thinking of us!!

How are you doing with your recovery?

Hope you're doing well, my friend!!

Yes, I do as well. I hope she can get used to it sooner rather than later, poor thing.... My next door neighbor has four minature long haired Chihuahua's and they have yet to start liking the thunder in the bad storms. She told me that all four of them hide under the covers every time they hear that or fireworks going off....

The knee, well, I'm moving it along, slowly but yet surely! I started PT last week and as they tell me, "you got to move it, move it....", sooooo, no pain, no gain; lol! I'm working it.... but if I slack off, lisa's cracking the whip on me at home; I feel so loved !

Thanks for asking~

Please let us know as soon as you can that everyone is okay. That's how we keep track around here, everyone checking in. Thanks, Ryan, and prayers going up right now. I am sure those kiddos are really scared.

Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. My babies are safe...my wife is safe...and we have a house! Our town though, Moore, has been devistated. It missed my house by about 3/4 a mile. Several schools were hit with the kids still in there and right now search and rescue efforts are going on. Internet access is limited so I may be a no show for a while, but will try to check in as I can.

Thank you guys so much...you are all awesome!!!

I read a few pages online and really enjoyed it. I think the chapter entitled "Dave Cooks the Turkey" is a winner. I wish I could find a book entitled The Complete Christmas Planner. It sounds so fun! Thanks for the recommendations.

Thank God!!! I told my mom about your situation and she has been watching it all on the news. She has called me twice asking if we had heard from you. I am so happy for you and your family. I will call my mom now and give her the report.

Very sad for those who were hit.
