Service People and family

Today has been a day of waiting for service people.

I don't like waiting and staying home but it does make me get some things done in the house.

Our son is coming home next week!

Our daughter and her family will be here on Friday for the weekend.

Our other daughter and her family live an hour away so we will all be together.

There will be a house full again...

Just like when they were living at home.

It will be a fun, exciting time.

I'm really looking forward to their visits.

PART #2 OF FOOTBALL SEASON

Woo Hoo...

Alabama BEAT Tennessee yesterday in football.

It was a hard fought game and Tennessee came to win.

My husband and I watched the struggle together, mindful of each others feelings.

We were exausted when the game was over. I played every down with Alabama and he, for The Vol's.

The bad thing about this game is that one of us is happy and one is sad.

The rest of the season, against other teams, we are yelling for the same team.. either Alabama or Tennessee against other teams.

This has always been a tough game because even in victory...

It hurts me to see my husband sad.

When we see what has happened in our world over the past few months...we can truely say...

It is ONLY a game.

 

BUT...

It sure felt good to win this time. Only the 2nd time that Alabama has beaten Tennessee in 9 years.

So, I'm enjoying this victory and already dreading next year and the 3rd Saturday in October!

FOOTBALL SEASON

It's that time of the year again!

The 3rd Saturday in October!!!!!!!!!!!

The BIG game!!!!!!!!!

First, you need to know a little history.

I was born in ALABAMA and was declared an Alabama football fan in the delivery room by my parents.

My husband was born in TENNESSEE and was declared a Tennessee Vol's football fan in the delivery room by his parents!

You never stray from this declaration...

This Saturday at 3:30 pm....The Big Game happens on our television.

I will be dressed TOTALLY...... ALABAMA

My husband will be dressed totally....TENNESSEE

If Alabama wins...My flag will fly proudly in front of our house.

If Tennessee wins....

Well...I don't even want to think about it.

Our children will not stay in the house during this game. They find other, Quieter places to be for the duration on the game and hours after.

This is the game of the year for us.

I want to win soooo bad!

This may be our year, at last.

Tennessee has beaten Alabama 8 out of the last 9 games.

It's OUR year, People!

DA DA DA DA DA DA!     GOOOOOO BAMA!!!!!

YEA ALABAMA...CRIMSON TIDE!

STARTING A NEW BUSINESS

WOW....

I am having so much fun and doing so much work!

I have decided to start a home business doing some thing that I have been doing for my Grand daughters for years.

So far, so good.

I am great at the creative part and the production of my craft...

 but...

I suck at the business part. Not sure how to get my craft out there for the public to see.

My Daughter said that I should sell on E-Bay.

I told her that I would sell my stuff on E-Bay if....

 I can figure out how to do it! So far, Stuck on..How to sell! Ha!

Not a great business mind but a GREAT crafter!

Wish me luck!

Any Advice?????

MORE ON MY TOOTH ACHE

I have an appointment with my dentist this afternoon.

My tooth is still bothering me. It's not a sharp pain but a dull ache.

I bet I will need a root canal and I don't look forward to that! I had one done 2 years ago.

I was never afraid to go to the dentist until that root canal 2 years ago. The dentist gave me a shot and I went into tachyacardia. I was rushed to the emergency room by ambulance and found out that I am allergic to Eppernefrine.(sp)

I always tell the dentist that  I am allergic but I am always afraid that they might forget. I never want to go through that again. It was the most frightening experience!

Now, I am afraid to go to the dentist if it requires a shot.

I can be a real baby at times and my appointment is at 2:40 pm.

So, all of you who read this journal...

Say a little prayer for me today.

THOUGHTS OF A TERRIFIED FLIER PART#5

PART 5 OF TERRIFIED FLIER

Sitting on the runway in Salt Lake waiting for take off.

I hope this 4 1/2 hour flight is smooth. We should have left at 10:00am and now it is 10:20a.

Pilot just came on and said there is congestion and we will be delayed for a while longer. I know what they are doing...prolonging my anxiety.

The girl next to me just sneezed! Great!

I get a cold to go on this flight.

Taxing to the run way now. It begins again and I will keep writing until we reach 37,000 feet.

Rolling down the run way, faster and faster....lift-off.

Oh Man....I have to sit here and give control of my life to pilot's that I don't even know!

Just once, I would like for the pilot's to be honest when they make announcements.

Like....

Well folks, we have lift off and we are climbing to 37,000 feet in the air. This is the most stressful time for a plane. This is the most likely time for a crash.

Let's just hope the mechanics, who serviced this plane knew what they were doing and did their jobs well!

We should know in 10 minutes or so. Just hold on, keep your seat belts tight and Oh Yeah, Pray!

Remember that we don't want to die anymore than you do so let's all pray that we get to our cruising altitude.

Pilot comes on again...

Hey folks..We made it! We are at 37,000 feet in the air in this silver tube that would crumble into tiny pieces if it ever went down.

Let's all take a moment and give the mechanic's a big...WOO HOO! 

All together now...WOO HOO Mechanic's!

Pilot comes back on and says....Hey folks, don't worry about those bumps. It's like driving down a highway. Your gonna have bumps. So, How about you keep your seat belts on and make sure they are fastened real tight. I have mine on real tight. I don't want to die either. I also have a family, house with a mortgage and children to go home too.

We will do our very best to get you to your destination, in one piece.

But just in casewe run into trouble...It might be a good thing to get to know the people around you. So, just like in church, take time to introduce yourself to the people around you, even across the isle. Find out their names and a little about them. If we go down together, at least you can say the persons name as we hit the ground.

We are flying through the air at jet speeds and at 37,ooo feet people. For 4 1/2 hours..We are a family! A family that will reach our destination or all die together.

So,  sit back and relax new family and enjoy the flight.

We, in the cockpit intend too.

The people are all abuzz, telling their names and where they are from and where they are going.

The pilot comes on again and says.

Hey family...This is your Captain.

Let's have a sing along because this will be a long flight.

Here goes...

99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it around...98 bottles of beer on the wall

TOOTH ACHE

I woke this morning to a tooth ache!

Why does this always happen on a weekend!

I haven't had a tooth ache is ages but this is a dull ache.

It hurt when I drank my hot tea and also when I drank a glass of cold milk.

I'm such a baby when I hurt!

MONDAY PHOTO SHOOT


Early fall seems like a good time to capture these guys in pictures, because they're out and about storing up for the winter:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Catch a critter in a picture! For the purposes of this photo shoot, a "critter" is a creature that is not a pet, so no dogs or cats, but mice, squirrels, pigeons, badgers, hedgehogs, wolverines, deer, dragons, sasquatch or any other sort of ambulatory thing is acceptable (as are bugs).

OK...OK... I'll stand here for this picture..

Then, I bust this fence and I'm outta here!!!
