Happy Easter Everyone. albino

We had our Easter brunch yesterday with Kevin, Amy, Nate & Rodney. Kevin's wife was sick so she didn't come, Stacy's girlfriend is having kid troubles so they didn't come. It was a nice brunch, so different & quiet than the huge weekends we used to have on the holidays. I miss that...I made potato salad (I HATE to make potato salad), sweet potato casserole, baked beans, a ham and a angel food cake with strawberries & ready whip. We have left overs for today after church & I sent stuff home with Amy.

Tomorrow George has a appointment at the VA Hospital in Wilkes Barre...I hate that drive, last time we hit a deer..then the Purple Heart meeting and Stacy has a sleep Apnea test. We are sure he has sleep apnea and Trina (who is a nurse) is making him have the test done.

GRAYMARE: That Little Big Shots show is on NBC at 8 or 9 PM. Those kids are something else. Such talent in those little bodies.

CB: Congrats on the new puppy.

ARK: What a brave boy Ivan has become, attacking the killer umbrella. LOL

Have a wonderful Easter everyone...

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!! We're on the hallelujah side.

Yesterday I ate all day.........stacked hay early, ran to McD's for a choc shake on way to store. Whip cream? LOL. "Of course and lots, thank you". That was about 9A...............then to lunch w blah blahs and had a big salad and bread six.
Then home to a houseful of "drop ins" so put ham in oven and made salad, beans & potatoes. So today, making another ham, adding cheese to left over potatoes, some corn, asparagus, and rolls. We're having apple pies that daughter is making. I asked her to bring whip cream, too. We have plenty of ice cream & syrups if anyone wants that, also. Obviously we're blessed to never be hungry. Yesterday was on the gluttony side.

GREAT picture ARK...............The real fun starts when you ride up to others to say hi.............. Shocked

ROSE, how is your baby?

CB, have a great trip..............can't wait to hear about your new puppy.

Everyone have a super day.

My kids very rarely buy me anything more than perfume or lotion so this came as a surprise. I think they may be feeling tad quilty......
Ok, I guess its time to fess up.....I'm having pretty ughie medical probs, diabetes related. won't know a lot more until I see nephrologist...but it doesn't sound like fun.

Enjoy family, live life and enjoy whatever you do to the fullest.

Happy easter foops and foopettes, I'm glad I'm able to have you all in my life...

Happy Easter!!

CB
 I hope the docs cure what ails you very quickly.... hug   When will you be seeing the specialist?  

ELLEN
Have fun with the cousins! Drool

TRUDY
Good luck for George and you on your trip!! Don't hit any deer.... affraid


GRAYMARE
 Yum, your weekend has been very tasty!
 Since I don't want to kill anyone, I promise not to ride up to another horse with my umbrella ROFL .  I actually made those pix for a green endurance rider  group I belong to.  The leader of the group said to post pix doing something fun on our horses while wearing green.  Since there is a prize involved, I had to do it! Very Happy   My green helmet cover is actually a fabric grocery bag stuffed around the helmet.  The saddle pad is a towel.  Cheap fun! alien

We are going to try our pickled eggs today, it has been three weeks since we made them.  I hope they turn out delicious, there is no more room for eggs in the house....

We had a spectacularly nice Easter day. The kids hunted for eggs, and then a spontaneous game of "baseball" sprung up in the street using a HUGE soft ball that was more like a balloon. Feet were used as bats. It started with three 10-12 year olds and a 30 year old. Then three more neighborhood kids joined the fun. There were occasional temporary time outs when a car came by. The rest of us sat on the front porch watching the action. Then, two of us were sitting in one of the porch swings when suddenly one of the hooks holding the chain simply broke. We got that "let down" feeling. Nobody hurt, but startled. We then discovered that the hooks have been holding swings for way more than 50 years. They will be replaced with new ones.
By the time I was ready to start home, there was a heavy thunderstorm on the horizon. At about the halfway point, I ran slo-o-o-wly through a real toad strangler of a rain. I was able to keep moving, but slow was the only way. The rest of the trip just saw typical scattered rains. There is another round of heavy storms on the way, but I got home before it hit.
It's been a beautiful Easter.

CB, sure praying for a good improvement in your diabetic problems.

I've seen "Little Big Shots" a couple of times. It is a really cute, funny show. I'll have to get it set up to record it so I don't miss it.

Boy, CB, that's me..................horsehair everywhere at the barn..........seems mostly up my nose. And Rex...........oh brother, a shower is a true blessing. One thing, the birds have plenty to line their nests. It's fun to see the hair sticking out of their nests.

Big thrill today..............I bought a new trash can for the kitchen..........
There you have it when a new trash can is a big happy deal. LOL
wavy wavy wavy WooHoo................

My neighbors had a big family dinner yesterday, and that made lots of leftovers. So they invited a neighbor couple and me over for supper this evening. It was nice to visit and catch up with what they've been doing while I was gone.

Morning everyone..busy day here yesterday. Started off with a trip to Wilkes Barre VA Hospital, so they could monitor George's CPAP machine to make sure he is using it. WHAT??? Why would they think he wouldn't use his machine? Hour and half drive one way for a 10 minute exam of the machine. Stopped at Longhorn Steak House for lunch. Good food, crappy service, a lunch shouldn't take over an hour for a couple sandwiches and a salad. There were hardly any people in the place. Not going back there. Last night the Purple Heart monthly dinner meeting. WHEW what a day..Today I'm dong nothing...

CB: Praying for good results on your latest health issue. I don't know when that Little Big Shots started but they run 2 episodes every Sunday. Those kids blow me away with their talents.

ELLEN: Glad you made it home safely and had a wonderful Easter minus the swing incident. That had to be a shock.

Have a great day everyone. I'm resting up from dashing all around yesterday.

ROSE
 Any news on horse search?  

CB
 It was those P.J.s that scared us! ROFL

ELLEN
 So what's been going on in your neighborhood while you were gone?  Besides tasty dinners..... Drool

TRUDY
 Glad you made it home safely, no unexpected deer jumping out.  My dad wouldn't use his CPAP machine much.  He didn't help his health much.  I am glad George uses his!  

GRAYMARE
Congrats on new trashcan!! Pix? ROFL We went through our eggs last night and filled a box with questionable, could be explosive, older eggs. It went out with the trash. If anyone shakes that box, you may be able to hear the screams of disgust in AZ. I have been giving away a bunch every week, but those hens stay ahead of us. The good news is, i now have more room in the fridge!!! At least temporarily...


Vets are coming today for spring shots and horsey check-ups.  Ka-ching.... Rolling Eyes

Rose, if u ever hear anything on the white dog bella, I'd still adopt her. no one I left messages with ever called me back at all, sad when someone is willing to adopt.
How is that cute gypsy baby?

Ark, sorry the jammies were so scary!

We head out thursday morning going east 189 miles to pick up the bulldog puppies. jessis has black on his face but otherwise marked like the pup we got who is marked like odie patotie....then we turn around and head to texas...

Tomorrow is tax day....we just do a short form now....

Got jessis cement curved bench, and elephant ear bird bath picked up and packed in the truck. this amish family does fantastic reasonably priced work.

We got our first free oil change today and we were wondering around the showroom floor and looked at the 2016 jeep wrangler, man its a luxury vehicle now, longer wheel base, leather interior, loaded, lots of cargo room...price tag 44,000. wow! I like my pickup better.

Daisie is doing great, no bucking, no crowhopping, no pulling....very willing. her first ride is tomorrow.....I hope she remains quiet, I'm just looking for a nice steady trail horse.

CB, Nope, never heard anything, which means she probably was snatched up by a Rescue. As long as they don't show as euth'd, I usually don't get upset.

ARK, No horses been have been selected yet. I'm still looking. What I want will probably be a long search. There is a baby coming the last of April, 1/2 Gypsy, 1/2 grade paint. Just don't know if I can deal with a baby again. We shall see, I will know when the right one comes along.

Have a great time CB...................stay safe..........

Shoer coming in a bit................horses eating and waiting. LOL

Sunny cool morning here......really nice out there.

No news here. Hey, we do have a new safe place at the police station for
Craig List purchasers to make a purchase............the point being if the seller doesn't want to meet at the police station a big red flag is flying. My friend's grand daughter bought an I phone and seller met her at the police station and phone is in working order...............all is well. Gosh, our country is a mess...............

Have fun, CB. See you when you get home. Smile

It's warmer but rainy today with more rain on the way. The dock installers came to put in two of my neighbors' docks today. That always looks like real spring. The guys had on dry suits, but I can't imagine that they were actually warm in the water. It took them about 35 minutes to do one dock that has 8 sections to put in. The other was quicker with only 5 sections. One couple are currently in Florida, but will be back in about 10 days. I'll be glad to see them.
My tulips are showing great big leaves, and finally, some great big buds down inside. It will still be several days before they bloom. Since there are about 50 new bulbs, I'm curious to see what they will look like.
