I'm in a little bit of a funk today.  I think the continuous rain is getting to me.  Pittsburgh is not known for sunny skies but summer usually produces drought like weather with tons of sun.  Not this year.  I heard on tv tonight that in the past 26 days, we've had five days of sun.  The farmers are losing their crops from rotting.  I'm losing my mind from dreariness.

I did manage to vacuum the pool again tonight in between the raindrops but it still has a long way to go before it's sparkly and pretty.  It's supposed to be sunny Saturday, so they say...

My DSL is continuously fading out and losing connection.  Sprint can't find a darned thing wrong with it. make matters worse, I just closed out my entry before I saved it....grrrr...what is up with me?  I have no idea why I hit that little red "x".

Two people I work with have the same type of pneumonia.  One last week; a new one developed it this week along with a strep infection.  I'm getting paranoid because I'm so prone to pick up strep and have had pneumonia twice.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

But I'm zooming around with my new optical mouse so long as the DSL stays connected.  I didn't get a wireless one because the cat is always on the computer stand.  I could just imagine constantly looking for the mouse because Mocha knocked it off.

Today is Sugar's birthday A LITTLE BIT OF SUGAR, PLEASE...  Stop by and wish her a happy one if you get a chance.

Lisa Jo is home from the hospital but still needs our prayers for her continued recuperation.  Damaged Goods  She's not feeling well at all.

Hope some of you are enjoying the lazy, hazy days of summer with some sunshine.  I'm still hoping for some.

I'm off to finish my laundry and hope that some of my clothes still fit.  Day one of eating healthy again but Megan isn't home yet.  She tempts me with those yummy midnight snacks and I have zilch in the way of willpower.

HUGS TO ALL....Have a good night!

                      ( DSL went out while I was saving this.  I hurried up and connected the spare wire.  Yikes, when it came back, the entry had been saved 6 times....not my night.)

Hi Chris,

Your graphic is just beautiful!  Sorry you feel like you're in a little funk....although I love the rain myself, it can start to be depressing if it goes on for days.  Hope your mood lightens and you can enjoy your eveingi!! So sweet of you to update eveyone on Lisa Jo and also Sugar.  You know, that's one of the things I love most about J-Land, everyone is so thoughtful and caring, such a loving community!!

Take Care,

Hi Chris!

Go get under Pennys Palm tree.  Maybe that'll help get you out of the Funk!  Don't you know when you have a great trip and come back to regular reality you get down.  Between that and the rain....that's all it is.  It'll get better!

I have received at least 4 alerts to this one entry. AOL is acting insane. I hope your friends arent getting pneumonia from your wet weather. I know that when it is dreary for a long time people get very down over it and i want you to be happy! LOVE YOU so,

HI Chris!  I am sending you a bit of sunshine in the form of a smile.  :)  Hope the weather gets better for you out there.  I know that it will.  Spike's brother has pnemonia.  It just has to skip us...right?

It's raining here alot in DE too Chris and I agree it's gloomy. We had a deluge night before last - I mean a deluge. I think you guys in PA are getting more though. I don't know what an optical mouse is. I've had a laser mouse for three years and I love it. It's even older than my computer! LOL Anyway, hope you get some sunshine soon and get out of the funk!

I hate days like those!!!!  I really hope tomorrow will be better for you.  Sprint drives me crazy!!!!!!  Nothing worse than something wrong but  the old "we can't find anything" B.S.  Hang in there....

I have not even been keeping up with the news as I have been outside working on the current home addition till dark.     This area of S. Illinois has been missing local rainstorms and it is sunny and 85F today.    I am resting partially for the rest of the week and am tired and painful from helping with the work here at home.    I will try to get up on my cabin roof this evening and continue tarring and shingling.   It is nice to sit in front of the computer in A.C. and read journals for a change.     I had to turn off my alerts because my mailbox has been above 320 as of today.    I will be stopping by when I can and wishing you the best.   mark
