How Time Flies . . .

Hi All!

I just realized that I didn't blog yesterday! Wow! I think the main reason is that I was just so darn excited to have the day off of work that it just slipped my mind. Well, that and the fact that I am totally addicted to the farming application on facebook! Terribly addicting but so much fun! I just learned some great tips today from my sister-in-law!

Skor is once more helping "oversee" my typing but for some reason, his right front paw seems to be troubling him. He won't let me take a look at it yet but he keeps licking it. Hmmmm.

Happy Fourth of July!

This morning I didn't walk but I did go out to cheer on the runners/walkers who were participating in our town's annual "Liberty by the Lake" 5K. I always like to go out and clap and cheer them on even though some other people (Hubby) think I am weird for doing it. The people who are towards the end of the race really seem to appreciate the encouragement. The front runners . . . not so much.

Oh well!

This morning, my neighbors across the street came out to cheer with me. That was fun. They were on one side of the street and I was on the other so the people in the race got cheered on in stereo!

How do you celebrate the 4th? Hubby and I will be heading to Fair Park to watch "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" the musical. Then we will probably have a quiet evening at home before stepping out our front door to watch the fireworks. Obviously, we are not big "party" people!

I know that I promised more pictures from the Alaskan trip - and they are coming - but I just couldn't bring myself to tangle with Blogger again today. Maybe tomorrow or Monday. Today I just wanted to "ramble on about nothing!"

Have a great holiday and I will "talk" to you again soon!


Voice Update: Generally, my voice is doing pretty well. Answering the phones and talking to people at work has been fine. However, I think I over did the cheering today since my throat is a little sore and my voice a bit raspy. Rats! Susan will definitely NOT like that!

I'm laughing about the facebook thing as I'm struggling (not very hard with my addiction to Bejeweled Blitz!
I'm taking the Brute Squad out to the island to have a bbq at my dad's.
TOG is back from Alaska but is working this weekend so he can't go with me.
Have fun watching the fireworks!

Happy 4th July to you and yours!
We will go to the roof and look at Macy's fireworks!
Aren't we lucky.
But maybe Buster will be a little scared .
If he is we will sit with him.
His first 4th JULY!

Farming on Facebook???
Look out mate, or it will take over your life and we here at the blog-front won't ever hear from you again!
That would be sad.
