Well, the boys are older now, so his buddy is "crashing at Jacob's place" Friday night, not "spending the night with Jacob." I expect to hear guitars till 3 in the morning.

I took Nancy to Jim's shop to see the latest Camaro, and she was actually impressed. Jim and I plan to start sanding the body this weekend, preparing for a primer-coat.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Happy birthday to Jacob! Hope you all hav a great day celebrating.

Harlowe seems to be doing better, thank God. She still isn't 100%, but is much better than last night. She is no longer getting sick, and is starting to eat and drink a little. Thanks for thinking of her 💛

I am having trouble catching up on my computer, I keep getting kicked out or referred to the platinum membership page :/ Not sure if they are working on the site, or not. Anyone else having the same trouble?

I will check back & catch up later!

Thinking of you all~
I had trouble getting on here for awhile too.
Glad your wee dog is feeling better again!

Glad Harlowe is doing better this morning. I've been thinking about you two.

The site was acting up for me too when I got home from shopping. I think the server saw how much CAH was posting and couldn't believe it either!!!

SNOWFLAKE - I hope Harlowe is feeling much better this morning, could it be a side effect from her vaccine the other day?


Thanks, Festive!! She seems to be doing better. Fingers crossed.
I thought about that, too. Maybe? She didn't react that way last time, but anything is possible. I also wonder if she could've picked up something at the vet's office? Either way, I appreciate all of your thoughts & prayers!

Thanks, CS! She wasn't eating much, wasn't interested- like she didn't feel well. Could've been empty, too. Thanks for your thoughts!

How was the rest of your birthday? How did you spend your day?

He had left home a month ago (moved out, he was not very happy) and now, thank god, he is in the cusp of coming back home again. We have been talking (my wife and I) with him and he has agreed to come back home next week (I'm praying that he does). Until he does, I will still feel the emptyness in my heart, that I have had for the past month.

You don't realize sometimes, just how much you need them, as much as they need you, until their gone... enjoy every moment and hold it close to your heart. Because before you know it, the time has past by, and they will have left the nest~
Glad you guys have been communicating, and that he is on his way back home!

((Hugs))

I picked her up and wrapped her in a blanket and called my wife and daughter and we took her to the vets. While we were there at the vets, she had a she had died while they were working on her, she was 7 years old and her name was "Bunny B" or Mrs B or just B, as we called her.

She was a dwarf bunny and she was 7 years is an old age for that type of rabbit. Vicki had gotten her when she was in middle school 6 or 7th grade and B was so personable, she loved chips, cereal, she would lay on the couch with us and watch tv, she loved to have her head rubbed and was also litter box trained.

Vicki was so upset, crying, which got me all upset, what timing, the day of her leaving home. B is now buried under a young oak tree that I planted in the yard.
I'm so very sorry for your loss, friend. I remember you telling us fun stories about Bunny B. <3 Thinking about you all, and sending love, hugs, and prayers.
