~The Birthday Girl~

I got my new computer yesterday! Yippeee!!! Daniel came over and got it set up for me. Thanks Dan! Boy it's sure nice to use a laptop that you don't have to hold the power cord with one hand, insert a pair of tweezers into the on button hole (notice I said 'hole', because the ON button got lost somewhere under the faceplate), stand on one leg while crossing your eyes and even then it would get too warm and turn itself off after 10-15 minutes. It was a sad, sad 'puter! I was alone on my birthday..(again).  Also, on the day of my birthday my co-workers gave me a party and brought all kinds of delicious food! They love me. I ended the fabulous day by coming home and taking a hot shower and getting my new V.S. jammies on, and climbing into bed. It was a good day. I am blessed.

A New President!

It's inauguration day today. No matter who you voted for, or what your political affiliation is, this is an historic day. Watching the festivities on t.v. can't help but make you excited for the next four years. Although I didn't vote for Barack Obama I've decided to give the man the benefit of support, because he is now our President. But I can't get what his "change" is all about. No one has ever made it clear. Will someone please tell me? It seems the whole country is electrified by this man. How long can this honeymoon last? I had a dream not too long ago that this feeling was abruptly interrupted. I don't want to know what that means. I hope I never find out.

Kitty Tales

The cutest little kitty was dumped off in Hooper the other day. She was limping around on three legs. As I got out of my car she came up to me, meowing and purring. (long story short) I took it to the vet to see what could be done for the kitty's rear leg, which was dangling when it walked. Three XRays and 140.00 later (I explained to the Vet that this was a rescued animal hoping she would cut me a break... but no such luck) She told me we had three choices (1) euthanize the cat (2) build some kind of metal contraption to try to brace the leg till it healed (3) amputate the leg-which would be the least expensive of #2 & #3. At a cost of 600.00. YIKES! I think I'm in trouble. I scheduled the surgery to be done on monday. How I was going to pay for it I have no idea, but I brought the cat home with pain meds. to be administered until the day of the surgery. When I let her out to go potty, she didn't come back. Well I guess that took care of the problem of funding the surgery. She was a sweet little kitty. I hope someone will find her and take care of her leg.

I'm blogging!

I'm new to this blogging thing, so be patient with me. My head doesn't always keep up with my fingers, so any misspelled words are not because I don't know better. I will be writing about my grandchildren, my work, my friends, and ME, MYSELF, and I. So fasten your seat belt, keep your head and hands inside the vehicle and HOLD ON!
