I'm Alive!!

I must apologize for not being on my computer that much lately. I sure do appreciate those who comment on my blog when I haven't been around to theirs lately! You know who you are!! :)

I am feeling under the weather today. I was throwing up last night and felt crappy all day. I didn't go to church this morning. If I'm getting something I sure don't want to pass it on to anyone else. So I have watched a little TV and laid on the sofa snoozing this afternoon. I did go out to feed the cats I feed daily and I went to Save-a-lot and got a loaf of bread since we were totally out. I don't know if I just have a bug or what. I don't have any symptoms of "that flu," which is good! So I'm hoping this was just a 24 hour bug. I do have a great-nephew who has the H1N1 stuff and I was over at their house the day before he was diagnosed and I did hug him when I entered and when I left. I don't think you could catch it from just hugging, and he was fine then. He woke up sick the next morning. He was told to stay out of school until this Tuesday at least, and then to return if his fever is normal and he's feeling okay by then.

Someone asked me how much the flu shot cost me. I paid $23 for mine. Some places like the pharmacies were charging $29, but if you have Medicare then it's free. I'm not old enough for Medicare and I have to pay almost $400 a month for my health insurance and that is with a $5000 deductible. Yes!! That is right! Makes me angry but what can I do? I feel like I have to have insurance but it's so darn expensive that it's hard to pay. I can see why so many are without it. If mine goes much higher I guess I'll be in that category. They must think I'm rich. WRONG!

I saw this stuff and I wonder if some of this might make me feel better?? Haha!! If you can't read it you can click on it to enlarge it, or any of these photos.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!!! I'm going to catch up with everyone as soon as I can! I promise!!

This photo I took today from our yard.

This is one of the prettiest trees I saw and it is near our Save-a-lot store.

Flu Shot and Sunday Sign

Things have been slow around here.

Yesterday I stood in line 40 minutes waiting to get a flu shot....in the cold! I was so glad I had a coat and gloves. Once you got inside the speed was still slow as there was papers to fill out and by the time I got through the line and got my flu shot it took 1 1/2 hours. But at least I got it, so I'm happy. They were also giving the H1N1 shot, so there was lots of kids there. I only got the regular flu shot.

Sunday Sign and More

The family reunion didn't happen since several of my great neices and nephews have the flu, plus the weather was crappy. It rained and turned colder. So we postponed it until later this month and hopefully everyone will be well and the weather will be nicer. Friday afternoon the tornado sirens were going off and the skies were dark. The bad stuff went north of us, with the county just north of ours getting a tornado. There was wind damage in our county but here we just got some wind and then a downpour that didn't last too long.


Here's Jamie Dawn and Skittles. They are partners in being naughty, with Jamie Dawn being the leader (she's the black one)! I wonder what these two are thinking of getting into next?

Here is my neighbor's dog. Well...not really my neighbor since no one is living there now. However the dog remains and I take care of him. He stays in their fenced in back yard and I feed and water him. He needs a good home and he's a sweet dog and a good watchdog. If I had a place to keep him I'd take him. This is not a great photo but it's hard to get a dog to hold still, especially this dog!

I do go over and play with him sometimes and although he doesn't do fetching or anything like that, he does like to run. I'll jump at him and he'll run all around the yard like crazy and then come running towards me. I'll jump at him again and away he goes around the yard for another burst of speed! I'm sure he gets lonely over there. The neighbor on the other side gives him a treat each morning before he goes to work. Pup goes over to the fence and all you see is lots of tail wagging, so they are buddies. A lady from the Humane Society told me that if no home is found for him that she will take him and foster him until a home is found! I was glad to hear that!

His owners moved but didn't take him along. They had searched for a good home for him to no avail. I told them I would be glad to feed him and take care of him and they could leave him there in their yard, until they decide to sell the house. Who knows, maybe someone will come along and love the house and the dog and want both! Wouldn't that be great!

He closed his eyes in this photo. He's thinking, "Aren't I handsome???"

Blue and Orange

Here's a look at the local helicopter from the hospital. I was recently at an event and they landed the helicopter so we could have a look inside. I thought it would be bigger inside, but it was pretty small, with the patient being right beside the pilot and a seat behind the pilot that would hold 3 people. The company said they do have larger ones that hold 2 patients, but this one is just for one person. Everyone kept saying how small the stretcher was for the patient. It was not very wide at all. I'm sure most people hang over the sides, even if they are a normal weight!

Here's a joke for ya!

Patient says, "Doc, you must check my leg. Something's wrong. Just put your ear up to my thigh, you'll hear it!
The doctor cautiously places his ear to the man's thigh only to hear, "Give me $10! I'm desperate! I need $10!"
"I've never seen or heard anything like this before! How long has this been going on?" the doctor asked.
"That's nothing, Doc. Put your ear to my knee.
The doctor put his ear to the man's knee and heard it say, "Please! I really need $5! Just $5! Please! I'm desperate!"
"Sir, I really don't know what to tell you. I've never seen anything like this." The doctor was truly dumbfounded.
"Wait, Doc, that's not all of it. There's more. Just put your ear down on my ankle," the man urged him.
The doctor did as the man said and was amazed to hear his ankle plead, "Please, I just need $20! Please lend me $20, please! I am really desperate!"
"I have no idea what to tell you," the doctor said. "There's nothing about it in any of my books," he said as he frantically searched all his medical reference books. "However... I can make a well-educated guess.
Based on life and all my previous experiences, I can tell you with some certainty, that your leg seems to be broke in three places."


Now isn't this a cute little pumpkin for Halloween?! This is Nate and was taken last Halloween. He is my great-nephew! He's running all over the place now!

Now here he is at his first birthday party!! He was very excited about the cake!!!

I got a haircut today; just a trim on the top part. I'm trying to let the bottom grow out a little and cover my ears for the winter. It helps to keep my ears warm.

I visited my nephew and his family for a little while today too. I took my great-nephew (he's 12) a Dale Earnhardt (did I spell that right?) knife. Not long ago I gave him a throwing knife. Today after he thanked me for the knife he said, "You just keep giving me dangerous weapons!" I thought that was funny! I never give them anything like that without an okay from their parents first. I don't want to get in trouble with any Moms and Dads.

This weekend we have a reunion and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. I will be making a cake and some other food to take. Should be fun and I hope the weather is nice.

I hope all my blogging friends are having a wonderful week!

Sunday Two-Fer

Got my computer back tonight. The last time I had it worked on my regular computer guy was vacationing, so he had someone filling in for him. I said no one could work on my computer like my regular guy, and it seems that's true again! The other guy didn't do it right. I thought it strange that it said I was working with only limited functionality, and it said to contact Dell. My computer isn't a Dell, it's a Toshiba.
Anyway, now it's all back to rights again, and I'm all for that. Plus he didn't charge me since the other guy did it wrong. I'm all for that too!! :)
I worked hard today, mowing our yard and the neighbor's yard. I had to do lots of weed-whacking on both yards. I had to go make a gas run part of the way through. It's only about a mile to a gas station though. I hated going in with grass all over me and looking like a wild woman, but there wasn't but a couple of folks in there, and I guess they could tell what I had been doing. I had to re-string the weed-whacker I don't know how many times. Too many!!! Arghhh!
Someone stole my neighbor's beer from his garage today. I knew that was going to happen. His garage is right next to the road and with the door open when you drive by there (going east) that is the thing you see, his beer sitting there in cases. It would just take a few seconds for someone to stop, get out, put it in their vehicle and off they go. He was home but he saw nothing. Neither did I and I was home, but that was before I started mowing, so I was inside. He said he had two thirty packs and one case. So that makes 84 bottles. He had some wine sitting there but they didn't take it. He was madder than a hornet. I don't blame him but that beer sitting there was just too easy to get to. Our county is dry, so I guess that may have saved someone a trip!
I took these church signs when I drove to Monticello the other day. I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!

Hither and Yon and Back Again

Yesterday I took a drive to Monticello, KY, about a 20 minute drive from here. It's a pretty drive. It was cool yesterday and cloudy. I had to put on a sweater when I was outside the car! It has been feeling more like fall, with lows in the 40's at night. Here is one field of soybeans that I drove past. I see the date on my camera is wrong, so ignore that! Trust me, I KNOW I took this photo yesterday!!
You can click on it to make it bigger. I love that view.

On the way back I stopped by a home where they sell country eggs.
Can you tell which one is the country egg and which one I got from the grocery?

Afternoon nap time for Skittles!! He barely fits in there!

My computer still has issues. It says it is working with limited functionality. It ain't lying either! I can still use it, but it will log off right in the middle of things. I can't shut it down properly. I guess I better call my computer guy again.
I found this quote which I think applies to my computer!
"The only truly secure computer is one buried in concrete, with the power turned off and the network cable cut." Unknown
I guess that applies to all our computers!!
Hope everyone is having a dandy week!!
