Hello, and Happy Tuesday.

Looks to be a bit warmer, but maybe not much drier today.  I spent much of yesterday trying to get the Photo Album in Windows Live Mail to work so I could send Block Party pictures to the neighbors, but without success. That used to work so well, but for some reason it doesn't anymore.  So, I sent the pictures out as just attachments, and half of them didn't show up.  It appears that I can not win.   Oh, well.  I tried.

Watching Bill Cosby's accusers and confession on the news this morning ~ so ugly and so hard to believe.  I won't go through my list of other upsetting stories, but gosh, I would love to see some good or happy news from time to time. 

Of Course ~ the Mandarin Oranges.  I didn't even think about them.     Thank you for your prayers for Barb.  I know how much they mean to her.  She does work so hard and give so much of herself and I do think travel to any place is a bit iffy these days, and I know with Christians being under attack all over the world, missionaries are in danger from evil people in addition to risking illness or injury because of their where they are working.  Barb says she wants the people she treats to see "Jesus with skin on", and that's why she does it.

I will keep your mom in my prayers while she is away.  Travel, as much as we love it, can be stress producing, and she has enough stressors already.  Yes, I think maybe you should warn everyone about her sleep talking and occasional sleep walking.  Mike has very vivid dreams because of the medications he is taking and sometimes makes indistinguishable noises and occasionally "real" words.  If he sounds like he's happy I just let him go, and if he sounds stressed I call out to "rescue" him.  ;-)

That does sound like a looong driving trip.  I hope she doesn't get too 'whumped' and has a good time.

Ok, I'm not going to worry about you for a few days ~ or until you tell me you're bummed out.  Hopefully you won't be and will get some good rest with the temperatures where you need them to be and watching the shows you want to see.  If you need to yell at someone or about something, you know I'm here.  Yell away!

Those PinUp tags are so cute.  Thank you!

Have a happy day!

Saying this first before I forget. I love your tag. Going to try and visit BAMA when I get done here. 
I did nothing today. Mom could not sleep and neither could I. Finally went to my room about 3:30am and still could not sleep about 4:30 I almost came back out but must have fallen asleep. I was up at 7:30ish to see mom and Diane off at 8:00 which was more like 8:30.
I planned on going to back to my room but did not so I have ended up dozing on and off all day.  I got a package in the mail from Amazon Pantry and I totally pigged out. I cannot believe I did not barf or explode.  I ate a small pack of gummi bears, a bag of mini cheddar rice cakes (supposed to be 6 servings) spoons in peanut butter and nutella.  OMG, it was all so good. Thankfully not a lot of calories in rice cakes but sugars were definitely too high. I even skipped doing my blood sugar at supper because I did not want to know what it was. Hopefully I am done with that.
I only found one Rizolli and Isles on On Demand and the last 2 Criminal Minds they have had on were old reruns. Very disappointed.  Going to have to hit up Amazon.
Other than being tired, to say the least, it has been an ok day.  Northern Wisconsin had 11 tornadoes last night but no really bad ones. The good thing is the humidity broke and today has been very pleasant and not so hot. My kind of weather. Even though we were predicted to have storms we did not, just rain.
I forgot to tell you that Jordan is in jail again.
He was here on Fri saying how good he is doing and that this would be his first July 4th he would be sober.  We praised him. Then what happens? On July 4ty he is found in Hobbs Woods after past his curfew (1), drug  paraphernalia on him (2) and with a girl under the age of 18 (3). So they arrested him and the police drove the girl home. $250 fine for the paraphernalia and he sits till his PO sees him and she will probably revoke his probation.
I hope she does. Makes me so mad. About 3 weeks ago mom lent him $400 to pay all his traffic tickets so he could get his license back as he had a job interview in Oshkosh. Suz had said they would pay mom but Jordan was to think it came from Mom as he would pay her back.  The think is that after only a few days he quit...he said it was because they were going to make him run a machine on his own that he had not had enough training on.  I know damn well that was a lie.  He made up reasons to quit each job he has gotten.  He got a check for $250, gave mom $100 of it and said the rest was for gas and fines.  Then he quit.  Suz said do not worry, we have the money, but then she was stupid and paid the new fine thinking to get him out but then found out he had to wait to see his PO. Enablers!!!!  Mom too!!  I do not know how she was talked into the loan. So now she spent the money she should have paid to mom.  No PO yet, but should be in at least by Thursday as Jordan had an appt with her that day. I hope she revokes and keeps him in there a good long time.  But then mom will never get paid.  Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
Anyhoo, here is another PinUp Toons patriotic tag.  This one I colorized to be in red white and blue.  Chat with you tomorrow.
Hugs,

Morning.

Cooler again today, not supposed to get above the mid 60s with a 40% chance of rain.   We'll see.   It was supposed to rain all day yesterday, but instead it was overcast and gloomy and we got some sprinkles in the afternoon, but not much.  We'll see what happens.

We are also experiencing a lot of smoke, I think the reason for the gloomy overcast, from the fires in Canada.  My eyes and nose are going crazy.  

We are going to go to The Keg for an appetizer "meal" tonight.  I know I shouldn't because I won't be limiting myself to carb-free munchies, but I have been sooo in the mood to do that.

Our trash but not the recycles go out tomorrow, and we'll probably take the can out tonight when we get home so we don't have to worry about getting it out tomorrow.  They usually pick up the recycle bin very early but the trash usually doesn't get picked up until late afternoon.  Of course the minute we wait until later to take it out they would come early, so we don't dare.

Bad Lou Ann!  Your Snacky Pig Out sounded wonderful.  Sad truth ~ I love munchies much more than "real" food.  LOL  Sounds like maybe you do to.

I do really like that BAMA tag too.  Marilyn put up tubes for the mushrooms and a tutorial.  The girl is an older tube.  All their tubes are on the site.   

I was going to try the tutorial but when we installed PSP9 on my new Lenova Laptop, the text is so small I can barely see it.  Some of the BAMA gals gave me some tips on how to fix it, and they helped, but I still have problems.  And of course I haven't done anything in PSP for so long I don't have the confidence to just assume I can do it in spite of the hard to see pull downs and such.   

I'm glad your mom got off ok.  I hope they have a great, safe and healthy trip!

OhMyGosh, Jordan.  It really sounded like he was heading the right direction.  Forgive me, but what an idiot!  He just doesn't "get" that there are consequences to actions at all, does he?  I'm so sorry.  I know you'd like to kick his butt, but I also know you love him and it hurts you for him to be in this situation.  I hope your mom doesn't let him off the hook for the $400, no matter how long it takes.  I imagine she could have used that money on her trip.  Even if Suz does pay her back, I hope HE thinks he owes his Grandma and has to pay it back ~~~ for his own sake.

Yay!  Another Patriotic tag!  Thank you!

Have a Happy Day, my very dear friend.

We had that smoke here yesterday with bad air warnings for us. It was smoke coming from Canada being pushed by a cold front. Warned those with respiratory issues to stay indoors. That was fine by me, I was too tired to go out.
I went to my room around 2, I think, and it did not take me long to go to sleep. I slept till 9:45.  Jeepers, I really do not like sleeping that late. But with mom gone I was able to set my meal times to whenever I wanted. So did not eat lunch till after 1pm and supper after 6pm.  
Today I watched 5 episodes of Mr. Selfridge and have it on again now. I wanted to start over as I knew I missed some in there. I intend to catch up to now. I will probably do Downton Abbey too!! So that I will be ready for the last season.
I really do not have anything much to say. It has been a quiet day. Got a text that Diane and mom arrived in Ark. around 5pm. So that is a blessing. I have heard nothing regarding Jordan and Jason never showed up to take the trash to the curb. But Chris, in the little apt., took it out for me. There was so little in the house that it was not worth worrying about.
That's about it and I am bit crazy yet, lol.
This is the last of the patriotic tags I did.
Hugs,


annnieM

Hi-Ho! 
Another day in the 70s with rain predicted in the afternoon.  I wonder if they actually do weather predictions, or just recopy the same one every day and change the date.    Yesterday it did rain lightly all day, but poured in the late afternoon, so Mike decided we shouldn't go out for our Appetizer Meal.  Good call, cuz we'd have gotten drenched.  We may try again today.   

I was one step above catatonic for much of the earlier part of the day.  I don't know why, but I hate when that happens.  So far today I feel like a real person ~ hope that holds.

Ah, the news today.  I think I'll just put a pillow over my head and ignore it and hope it goes away.  Sanctuary Cities and Civil Forfeitures when you haven't been convicted of a crime, ISIS  and so many other things just upset me terribly.  Apparently it was just a series of explainable (mostly) issues, but when the NY Stock Exchange went dark for 4 hours with no explanation, and the Wall Street Journal did as well and several other things happened, it does make you aware ~ if you weren't before ~ of how vulnerable you are.  Mike and I have been talking about putting some cash "under the mattress" in case there is some kind of hack on the banks and we can't just use our credit cards to buy groceries or gas or whatever until everything is restored. Watching the Greeks (and I know that is an entirely different situation) standing in line for an hour to get $60 "bucks" out of their ATMs just makes me cringe.  I don't think either of us could stand line for 15 minutes and we have no one to send to stand for us.   Of course there is no way to protect ourselves from everything (utilities shut off?  Water effected? Who knows what else) and it's harder every day to trust the Government to protect us.  We may seriously look into buying a small fireproof safe.

Sleeping and eating at the times YOU set, That is the advantage of "living alone" for a while.  You can do what you want, when you want and no apologies needed.    And Binge Watching TV shows you might not normally get to watch ~ I do love that, though fortunately for me, Mike and I like most of the same things so we Binge Watch together.

Good to know they made it safely to Ark.   You know they are going to, and you would hear if anything went wrong, but still until you officially know, there's just a wee bit of dis-ease.   I'm sure you have a bit of that anyway because it just doesn't seem "natural" with your mom gone.  Try to enjoy it as a vacation for you, too!

I love all of my Patriotic tags and have them safely tucked away for next year.  Thank you so much!  

Have a wonderful day!

This week is so weird for me.  I am constantly looking over to see my mom...to see what she is doing and if she is awake.  I always feel weird when I see she is not there. We have been living together since summer of '99.  I do not know what I will do when she is no longer here. I have gone all day today without talking other than saying hello into the phone and there was no one on the other end.  Even my sister Suz, texted me to say that Jordan had still not see his PO and we both no that is deliberate on her behalf.  I am glad he is still in and I hope he stays in for a while.  But I do not approve of her ignoring him.  Not knowing is just plain cruel.  Just revoke his probation and get it done.  Then again, maybe he deserves to worry and so does my sister for enabling him all the time. But I do not, I want to know he is staying in.  I do not want to see him walking away from this again.  I am sick of it.

I am on season 2 of Mr. Selfridge, which I have not seen at all. I am really enjoying it.  

There is so much that is frightening.  I have a friend in Greece and they are all so worried.  Now Puerto Rico is going bankrupt. Certainly we have to help them out. It just keeps getting worse.  I guess I have no money to lose so it is not as frightening to me. But then, if SS were to fail, where would that leave me?  I do not like to think about it. I think you should get a safe and "tuck" some money away.  Just to be on the safe side.

Tonight's tag was a free for all, we could do anything. So you are getting a Libra tag, lol.

Well, I really have nothing else to say, so will say good night and hope for a better day for all.

Hugs,

It's the weekend.  Let's Par-tay!  

Anyway, it IS Friday, and Thank God.  I've been "off" all week, not sick but over tired and in a bad mood.  Hopefully I can put that behind me.  

I can imagine how unsettled you feel right now.  You are so used to your mom being there and when she isn't it just doesn't seem natural.  By the time you are completely comfortable with her being gone, she'll be back! ;-)

I can also imagine the flashes of 'one day this could be permanent'.  It's just natural and logical to think that way, but the reality is that we really don't know.  She is older and has health issues, but you don't know who or when when anyone will be taken.  We have to just try to enjoy each other as much as we can while we can ~ period.   You don't have to worry about me, btw, cuz I'm gonna live forever.  

Part of me thinks it's good for Jordan to sit there not knowing what will happen, because that's worse than any reality he ultimately had to deal with.  Something needs to get his attention!  It may not be all that bad for his folks either, because they really just don't seem to "get it", do they?    On the other hand, you sure don't need this stress.  I'm glad your mom isn't there to have to worry about it and I hope nobody tells her until she gets home.  In spite of thinking this may be good for Jordan in a way, his P.O. really seems to be a vindictive bytch.  If she did the things she does to help her charges that would be one thing, but she still seems to just be petty.  Hardly professional.

I love Binge Watching good shows like Selfridge too!  I'm spoiled doing a lot of that, so when I have to actually wait for a whole week to see what happens next it just doesn't seem right!  lol

I have mixed feelings about bailing Puerto Rico out.  On the one hand, the 'regular' people who have just played by the rules and are getting caught up in this mess don't deserve it, and I don't want them hurt.  Those "on top" who have made these awful decisions, on the other hand ~~ well, heck. They never get hurt do they?  They just go through life causing havoc for others.  When are people going to realize that Socialism doesn't work?   As Margaret Thatcher said, eventually you run out of other people's money.   I'm just afraid we are heading in the same direction, not soon but someday, if things don't change.  We will be 20 Trillion (with a T) in debt by the time Obama leaves office.

Pretty tag even if I'm not a Libra.  ;-)  Thank you!

Sounds like they are mowing our lawn "as we speak", so if I do decide to go outside the mowers will hopefully have moved on and it will be quiet.  I hope! 

Have a Fine Friday!

Love ya,

Dorothy

I am using the border again as it goes so well with today's tags that are my first ever goth tags...but cute ones as I do not like real goth.  I am on another eating binge, actually I have been for most of the time since mom left.  Not good and it has to stop.  Some of my BS have been over 200 and that does no make me happy.  Now I need to binge diet since I see Denise on the 20th.  I will have to tell her about my behaviour.  I really should have increased my antidepressant before they were going to leave.  I had planned on it and then forgot. Now by the time it would take effect, they would be back. So I will not bother.

All the binging and reading really threw off my sense of time of day.  I have been going to bed between 3 and 4 and up by 9 or 10, yet I feel exhausted all day.  I also think the change in eating times is throwing me all off and effecting my BS too.  I am going to try to be in bed by 2 and up by 9 if not earlier.  Try to eat at the times mom and I usually eat at.  I am afraid the changes are really affecting everything, including adding to my stress...I think with all my medical issues that I need to structure and continuity.

Jordan's PO saw him today and wanted him to write out a statement.  He had already done that for another PO, not his own though, so he had to do it.  She will present it at Monday's meeting with all the PO's and they will make a decision.  I believe his Parole will be revoked.  Especially since I just found out from Suz that the girl was 14.  Jordan claims he did not know that, she had said she was 17.  She had told her parents that Jordan was 18 and he is 20.  Why would they even allow their daughter out with a 18 yo when she is only 14?  Let alone that it was a lie.  Suz met her father today because she had left her camp chair and some other items in the vehicle.  Suz said he was very nice and made some comment about kids...sometimes you just want to bat them in the head.  Now that is a sad comment...but maybe he was thinking about Jordan, lol. I would have said to tell your son to stay away from my daughter.

News just came on and 15 yo shot at a basketball court where all kind of kids were there playing ball. He is in serious condition and was shot in the stomach.  Praying he makes it.  Also a 20 year old had his car hijacked at gunpoint as he returned home from work. He is afraid for his life as he saw one of the men as they drove off.  Now I know why I do not watch Milwaukee news.  WooHoo, the 3 sisters lost in Wyoming for 12 days are safe.  I am glad I had not changed the channel yet.

Chat with you tomorrow.  I am alright.  Just some weak moments tonight.  I feel better already, just talking about it helped.

Hugs,

Hi.  I just checked in a couple of tmes to see how you are doing.  I will save my "official" post until tomorrow.  I did see your posts on Facebook.  I wish I were closer ~ or had Scotty's Teleporter ~ so we could hang out a bit.  I know it's just adjusting to the change and you will be fine, but you have to get from "here" to Fine.


Forgive me but my aging memory is often worthless.  I can't remember who I discussed what with, so if I'm re-re-repeating myself, just ignore me.  I wanted to ask if you'd ever watched "The Last Tango in Halifax" on PBS?   It's a charming story that you might like about a couple of "Pensioners" who had been attracted to each other when they were teenagers, but parted without really dating because of some issues that happened then.    Now it's 60 years later, and they met again through Social Media ~ and it was love at first sight!

They decide to marry, and then the "fun" begins with their grown kids and grandkids.  Hmmm.  Doesn't sound that great the way I describe it, but it really is sweet and both Mike and I like it.

There are two complete seasons out there and two episodes of Season 3, with the next episode coming up on Sunday.   It might be something fun to help fill in the gap.

Thank you for the cute Goth Tag.  I like the cute ones too, and this is really sweet.

Chat tomorrow.  Have a good night ~~ please.  ;-)

Love,

~ Me.

Hello. I hope you were able to sleep last night and are feeling a bit better today.  Maybe because of your posting on Facebook, maybe you will get a few calls or visits.  People just don't think.  

I had a nicely lazy day yesterday, but I did get a few things done for a change.  Nothing very exciting, so nothing worth talking about.  

I did make that Breakfast Casserole and "marinated" it in the fridge overnight.  We'll cook it for dinner tonight and have it again tomorrow and Monday.  There should even be a couple of pieces left over to freeze.  Nice having something made so you don't have to worry about what to make.

My friends in the other group mentioned that Bertolli frozen foods are good, and Mike's sister has mentioned that too, so maybe we'll see if there is anything not too "carby' that we can keep on hand.

I gave in to the naughty munchies, too, and ordered some peanut butter stuffed pretzels with my last Amazon Prime order ~~ and polished the whole bag off.  I'm having that outpatient surgery in a month, we're starting to celebrate my birthday soon, and I'm afraid to get back on the scale.  Pretty sure it won't have gone in the direction I want it to go!  Embarrassing.

When I have the surgery, I'm not supposed to raise my left arm for a week or so.  Problem is that most of my 'tops' are shells that go over my head, with shirts or sweaters that go over them.  Talk about timely ~ yesterday I got an email from Talbots with many things on sale for 50% off, including things already marked down.  Since I need something, especially to wear home after surgery, I found two button down the front blouses, one was $90 for $20 and the other was $80 for $15!  Shipping for the two was $8, but you still can't beat that with a big stick. ;-)  I'm set!

I hope today is a much better day for you.   I'll check back in and on Facebook when I can.   I think we're going to have our coffee on the porch this morning when I get off line, and then we have some errands to run.

Sending love & Hugs,

Hello. 
Hot weather continues ~ heading for the low 90s. It was beautiful yesterday and we sat on the porch and had our morning coffee, then Mike went in and I stayed out and read.  I think we are going to kick off my birthday week with brunch at the Bonefish today. 
smiley19
I'm so sorry you lost your post!  I saw in Facebook that you were having a better day and then to come here and have Aimoo poop on you.   Grrrrr.  

Bruce and Louann's house is lovely and his sky pictures are amazing.  We often can see the moon in all it's glory from our deck, and beautiful skies too, but I never get good Moon Pictures, and often the sky is much more beautiful than my pictures show.  Of course I'm just using my little point-and-shoot camera, but I don't even really know how to set it to get the best shots, never mind having a fancy camera with all the attachments.     I have never seen the Northern Lights. :-(  

Hope you have a really good day!

Birthday celebration, Day 1   ~ The Bonefish Grill


Mike in his Pathetic Pose.  He has it down to a science, so that everyone will feel sorry for him and wait on him.  Well, everyone except ME!


Mike had a Mimosa and

Surf + Turf Eggs Benedict* toasted English muffin, filet mignon, lobster, poached eggs + Hollandaise sauce.   Seems a bit less pathetic, hun?    


I had a Georgia Peach Belini Martini and
Crème Brûlée French Toast:  Grand Marnier + orange zest battered, served with whipped cream, fresh mint, strawberries + bacon



Off to a good start!   

We also took two pieces of Key Lime Pie home to have for dinner tonight.

Let's try this again.
I have seen the Last Tango in Halifax listing but did not know what it was.  I checked it out today buy it is a pay to view.  I also found Larkrise to Candleford but it is also pay to view and at $1.99 per episode, I will pass.  Think I may watch Downton Abbey and try to see all the ones I missed.  They do have an extensive listing of Opera's and I wondered if you would look at them and tell me if any of them would be any good.

I am glad you think ahead and realized that you did not have anything that would allow you to not raise your arm, and that you got such a good deal.  When I was still working as a CNA we had a resident who was very difficult. She was OCD to an extreme and the wife of a doctor and very spoiled.  She was from Milwaukee but she had been kicked out of every nursing home in that area.  Everyone hated her and I felt sorry for her.  For that reason she took advantage of me...but I really did not mind, but she kept me in her room for hours each night and the other staff did not like that because they had to handle everything else going on.  So they limited the amount of time I could be in her room.  I used to do her checkbook for her.  So she would sign the checks and then I would make them out and mail them.  That stopped too as the facility was worried that if something went wrong she may claim money had been taken and sue them.  Talbots was one of her favorite places to shop.  I used to accompany her to the mall and it got to be very embarrassing.  We would only go in the high end stores and she was very rude to the clerks, etc.  I was always apologizing to them.  She had a favorite restaurant that her husband would take her to for lunch so sometimes mom and I would take her there for supper.  She threw and absolute fit when they did not have what she wanted on the supper menu, it was only on the lunch one.  It was so embarrassing and I had to apologize to the poor waitress and she told me...that's ok, my grandma is the same way.  I finally put my foot down and told her if she threw any more tantrums or was rude to people, I would not take her out any more.  She did get better. She even bit me in the arm once when I was trying to put her to bed at her curfew time. It hurt like hell.  I refused to go in her room for a week and she finally apologized.  For the life of me, I cannot remember what happened to her.  Ok, that was a long silly story that you did not need to hear, lol.  But Talbots triggered that memory.
Every day is a lazy day for me.  I did do the dishes this morning and cleaned up the kitchen and put away the groceries when Suz brought them.  I did not need much.
It is hot here today too! 85 and humid.  If I had realized it was going to get this uncomfortable I would have started the AC this morning.  Now it does not seem worth it.  Mom made the comment that as soon as she left, I would close up and turn on the AC.  But I have been ok.  I can take a little heat when it is not humid. But if this is going to continue, I will do exactly that. Whether she likes it or not. She does not understand how much it is harder for me to breath when it is humid.
Bruce has a very good camera and has always taken great pictures.  I wonder what is going on with the ones he took of all of us?  I will have to ask him about them.  Joanne is going to try and bribe Leigh to come home in Sept for a weekend with Packer tickets.  She had 8 tickets for a game then. Her family is 5 so she has 3 spare.  I said that if they come, maybe Kristi could stay with us and Leigh and the 2 boys would go.  She said Leigh always says if you ever have tickets to spare, let me know and I am there.  If they do come, Bruce will take a picture of the whole family.  The only one we have has Marcia in it. :(
Anyway, I think I have talked myself out, lol.

Good Morning  

Well crud!  I posted this with a cute little fishy border that used to work fine, but it now scrolls all over the place.  DARN!  Thanks a lot, Aimoo. So here I am, non-fishy-plain-Jane.

I forgot to mention that our Brunch yesterday was 20% off. ;-)  I also didn't mention that my Martini contained Peach Liquor (and a peach) and Vodka.  I had it around 2PM, so you know that I have nothing else to share for the rest of the day.  LOL  I never could drink during the day, and that situation has not improved with age.

Hafta laugh at the pictures I posted.  I think the drink I had looks so enormous because of the angle.  It was substantial, but not huge.  I can't come up with any explanation for my hair except that I cancelled my last haircut appointment, and I'm not making the next one until a week before the surgery.  I will have to put a bag over my head when I go out by then!


We aren't going out every day, and we might stretch the birthday celebrations into a couple of weeks just to make all the partying easier on the old folks.   I remember when Mike used to ask where I'd like to go for my birthday and I'd say "The Artichoke Cafe" and that's where we'd go.  The Artichoke Cafe is in Albuquerque, btw.  lol   Of course we'd have to spend several days there just to make the trip worth while.  Now we are really pathetic, both of us.  We enjoy things more when they aren't all scrunched together.

LOL ~ isn't that pic of Mike a hoot?  I tell you, he really does look like that a lot of the time.  He really isn't that pathetic, but he has mastered The Look and everyone (except me) waits on him.  Stinker!   I can pretty much tell when he really doesn't feel good and isn't just playing pathetic, and I do take care of him then.  In the meantime, he takes care of ME and that's the way things ought to be.  LOL!  He's making me bacon for breakfast this morning, cuz it's my birthday week.

I love your story of the lady you took care of.  Not many would be that good to her.  I hate to think of losing one's facilities and being at the mercy of care givers who don't Care.  God bless you, real good, for your compassion.  

Phooey, that the episodes are Pay.  I swear Amazon Prime is beginning to raise prices and give less for the services they provide than they used to.  We find lots of things on Amazon Prime that are paid, but fortunately we have Netflix and Acorn, so we just go over there and most of the time we can find them.  I'm surprised the show on PBS was a paid version!   It's a sweet show.

Speaking of Amazon Prime, my main reason for taking it is the two day delivery.  I can always save up to get enough things to buy to get free shipping, but the two day shipping often matters to me, and lately more and more I don't get things in two days even though they are Prime!  I finally got mad and sent a semi-scathing email protesting, and they gave me a one month extension on my Prime Membership!   Come to find out, they will try their best to make it right if you complain, and that might mean giving you a cash credit or extending your membership by a month!   Squeeky Wheels get the oil!  

I will check the link out and let you know if there is anything I think you might like.

Congratulations on your exciting news!  I see Wisconsin's Favorite Son has entered the race for President!  I know you must be thrilled! Good luck!  (She sez, knowing she is out of swatting range ~ Bwahahaaaaa)


Good thing I already got my cute Christmas In July tags, hun?  Thanks!  ;-)
