Ms. Lilly

She has a Tooth! How about that. She's holding on to the couch now standing up I wonder when I go in 2 weeks if she'll be walking. I can't wait to see her. Andrea is coming an going too so we'll just have a great weekend. This last weekend they went to the Plano balloon festival and I've already told them that next year I'm coming to it. I love the balloons. I have to say I've had better weeks started out with an sinus infection so the Dr put me on Clarithromycin which has made my heart race and my blood pressure go up to 158/111. I don't think I slept at all last night. But it's better today. I've already called the heart Dr and the regular Dr so I hope they straight me out.

Seems here lately so many people that we know either have died of cancer are have it. With all the great an wonderful technology how come this has not been cured. Dale called me yesterday from the road and told me Bob Elliott had passed away. Dale had worked with Bob nearly the entire time he's owned his business, and he thought very highly of him. He was a god fearing church going man and Dale held him in very high regard. Bob had faught cancer for at least 2 years. He had been in remission but the cancer returned last week and in a few days he was gone. Dale is not an emotional person but he was yesterday. He works with people every day some are nice some are not, well most are not. So he asked me why is it the nice people are the ones to go early and the ass holes are still here. You'd have to know my husband to know that's just how he talks. I really had no answer for him on that one. The only thing I can say is the good people go early because they are the good ones. The others are left here longer because they aren't nice people. Maybe it's their punishment who knows. I always try to look at things on the positive side and that's just the only positive thing I can think of. Another good person is enjoying a visit with the maker. What an awesome thing that must be. I know I'm not a church goer but I feel I have an understanding with him, we talk everyday and sometimes he leaves signs he's heard me. A rainbow, a rain shower, a butterfly, a beautiful sunset or sun rise. It's all there you just have to take the time to see it.

Weekend Fun

We had a really fun weekend. Several of us went to Big Spring Saturday for a flying of the miniture planes. Now I love the little planes, so this was a real treat for me. As you can see from pictures we took the old cars. One of our car club members is also a member of the Air Plane club in Big Spring. I think next year we'll get together and have a joint show of the cars and the planes.

Lou Man

Well Lou Man gave us a scare the other day. I got home late from lunch and could hear him having a fit. So I go into the house and neither of them are in the house. I figured he had a squirrel treed. Once I got into the back yard there is Lila but no Louie. He started barking again and now I know where he is. He's locked in the garage in the back. Seems when Dale left that morning he had to go in there to the 55 and get something. Little did he know Louie followed him in. So from 8:30 in the morning until 1:30 that afternoon, he was locked in the hot shop. Lucky for us he was okay, just very thristy. That evening he decided it was time to be a gopher and dig up the yard again. I once told someone that Beagles don't dig. Man was I wrong. So last night I went to Westlake and bought all the fencing they had. So now Lou Man is banished from that part of the yard. So far so good is all I can say. I have no clue what he's digging for maybe China. It just looks like little trenches all over the back yard.
