I am frustrated! We can't seem to find our digital camera. It hasn't surfaced since last Saturday morning when Don took a picture of us eating breakfast at the motel. I thought maybe we left it in the Brown's van, but evidently not. Now Don is wondering if he dropped it out of his pocket somewhere that day and didn't notice it. Who is the saint that helps you find lost things? Forget that. I've been praying for the good Lord to help us find it and that hasn't happened, so . . . maybe we will have to resort to Santa to bring us another one. dang. shucks. rats. ugh!

My Hair!

This is for Emily! See? Oh my gosh!!! This photo was hard for me to pull off. This morning before I went to work, I was trying to take a picture of myself, but it didn't show my hair very well, and then I finally figured out (on the way to work) why. It's because I was looking way up at the camera! duh! So when I got home from work, I went out again and got looking down instead! duh! It's the best I could do! If I knew how to crop, my face would be out of there and show you just the hair. So just focus on the hair and pretend I'm not there! ha!

Veterans Day

A big thank you to our veterans - to those who sacrificed so that I can be free and safe. Thank you, Don jr, Don sr., Daniel, Bill, Gary, Tim, Uncle Floyd, and many others who have served our country. Thank you, Cecil, my classmate who gave his life. Watch some TBN today and feel grateful to be an American and get it inside your gut that freedom is not free. A greater love has no man than he lay down his life . . . . And happy 232nd birthday, Marines!!! ooh-rah!

The Plant that will not die!

Seymore is inside to avoid the frost, but he hasn't made it to his winter spot yet. You can see that he is sprawling out like he thinks he's got all the room to himself. We need to tie him up and move him to my bathroom before he attacks the fishtank! I have had this plant for many many years. Laura has Seymora - a shoot off of Seymore. I have downsized him many times, each time wondering if I was going to kill him off, but he just keeps growing back. Any other plant I could kill without even trying to. But not this guy.
