Smiles

          

Finally...whoo hoo...a smily day!  The Carnival yesterday was just way too cute.  It was all the fraternities and sororities doing 30 minute musical type revues for charity.  Each sorority was teamed with a fraternity.  Megan's was a spin off of Grease, sort of.  I was amazed at the talented singers and dancers they have.  Megan just looked way too cute.  Joey and I went.  Of course, he was bored but only had to stay for Megan's group. 

Megan was just totally thrilled that we went.  I took her out to eat afterwards and dropped her back off at the school.  They were all being judged so she was hoping they at least placed.  It seemed like the judges were totally enjoying her group's entry.  I haven't heard from her yet.

I stopped at the grocery store on the way home.  I was so whooped that I fell asleep around 9 last night.

We only had a bit of ice overnight.  Today it just rained so I'm very thankful for that.  It was 40 today.  The snow is slowly melting.  There's still a couple of inches left.

I barbecued slabs of ribs in the crockpot with a mixture of all types of beans and black-eyed peas.  Yummy!  Joey cleaned the familyroom while I worked on the kitchen.  Things are moving along.

Grizzly is moving soooooo much better.  Thanks, Dawn, for making me feel so much more comfortable with the meds!  It's such a relief to hear that there are others who have dog using this drug successfully.  Thanks to all the rest of you who have kept Grizzly in your prayers.

Tomorrow is a special day.  It's dear Penny's Penny`s Pieces of Ohio birthday.  As many of you know, Penny is a leukemia survivor.  A special birthday for one special lady.  Drop by and send your good wishes.  Love ya, Pen!

Thanks to Angela for the adorable siggy!

Ok, Any Grease re-mix would have me dancing like a teenager. I had such fan issues with that movie back in the days. How cool to see your baby participating in that. I would have loved that. Those black eye peas and ribs sounds good. If you ever want my Creo sides of the families recipe for Gumbo let me know. Its the best.    Hey, meds?...hope your feeling better. I didnt know what was going on, so I will read more of your blog and see whats up. ~Raven

Hi Chris.  I am Kathie and I am new to Bloggs.  Astoriasand sent me your journal.  I was deligted with all the graphics other people were sending me and wondered where they got them from.  Kath gave me your URL. and I would like to have some of your pictures if that's O. K. with you. My journal is called Kathie Corner and you can find out all about me and my family there. I live in South Wales in the U.K. My husband name is Idris and we have been married for 44 years today. I have been reading a little about you and I am so sorry you are having such trouble with your beloved dog.  Years ago Idris and I had a boarder colly bitch her name was Kirsty and she developed athritus in her later years.  Its awful to see them in pain.  Well Chis hope to speke to you again. Thanks for the graphics Kathie.
