Just stuff

ok, I give up. After 3 tries of trying to get these photos to be added at the bottom of this, they are being left where they are! Clockwise from bottom left, Donna, Sandy, Barb, Patsy, Gladys, Pat and Ginny. And the pretty double rainbow.
Hi all, actually after talking with Rebecca who commented that I was not blogging so had time to create I thought I had better post 'something'! Then I notice Joanne has not posted any thing new either. For me, I guess my 'blogging' just goes right into the emails I send you all. I can't seem to keep up with the blog, my space or facebook. Tho with the up coming 3 months off....who knows......I might just get to it a little more.

Yesterday had a girls day out with friends here on the west coast. Barb and her daughter Sandy who is visiting from Alaska, Patsy, Pat, Gladys, Donna and myself. It was the 1st time in 3 years since Donna had her stroke that she has been out shopping without her husband taking her! We talked and she said she is ready for time "time for me - alone time" We all had a fun time but Donna had the best I do believe. We were at Kohls, Ross, Bed Bath and Beyond, ending up at Washington Square Mall, where she had not been in 5 years! We had a nice lunch and after shopping (leaving at 10, returning at 5:30) we ordered Chinese food and all converged at my house to eat. As Donna was leaving to go home, she gave me a hugh smile and said,"Can we go again?" I laughed and said we could but not right then - it was nearly 9pm! So we are going to have a day out in Dec and will eat at the Cheesecake Factory where Donna said she had never been. Its so great that she is able to get out with me!

Anyway....we all found some goodies and did some Christmas shopping. All except Sandy....who when I asked if everyone did Christmas shopping, she laughed and said,"no, it was ALL about me!"

After coming out from lunch, we saw the most beautiful rainbow! It was worth all the rain we dodged at every store!

Tata for now......

Todays the 1st

Not the 1st in as the 1st of a month or week but the 1st 'blog'. Will this be different than as in all those story emails I have sent you all for the last how many years now??? I guess so, cause I have been sending those to friends and family and I guess the world can see this. Not that anyone will return once they have read my rantings and such. Well.....maybe Rebecca cause I know how she loves me! I'm sorry Becca......I just can't stop teasing you about my 'spam' messages. I just loved it so much. And you too! Ok, enough for this 1st so called blog.

Well, wait. Sitting here in the Troutdale yard waiting for laundry to dry, Larry to shower and then a trip to the dentist to get a tooth yanked out. What fun! Tata for now......
