Do ya reckon they heard about yer diabetic diet so they felt safe in putting the blue belle and dr p on sale.

Well done JS that's a good drop in the level huh.

Heh. that's pretty cool about the horse and dog attending her funeral although I do hope neither one threw themselves on her coffin. Oh well at least the dog knows where to go to dig her up again I guess. arrhaaha. oops.

Oh look at that smug BamaBugg up there...*sigh*...alwaaays second best I am. HA!

Nit Wit said...

Does first still count if you don't comment on the post?
Try using duct tape to hold the litter box down. Duct tape, the only thing a guy needs to fix the world.
It seems like the churches are all having their fundraising events at the same time so that people can't afford to attend them all.
Rainy here today but our cold front isn't here yet. Friday night it is supposed to be below freezing. Damn Canadian air.

I'm jealous - a road kill shirt, too funny!
West sounds like a busy little place....yesterday a home made bottle "bomb" was found in a local high school. They evacuated and it was removed, I don't think they know who did it though. Sad. I swear this sort of thing NEVER happened when I was in school.

Your post reminds me of the town my grandmother lived in down in Georgia when I was a little girl. They would announce it in the paper when Mrs. Such and Such had company for dinner.
Awww life in a small town

junebugg:oh, jb such a great card you sent to me ..for girlfriends day...thanks
apos:never...second best...how lucky i am to have so many first's...i loved the fact that the horse and dog were invited..they said she rode everyday and the dog always went with her and it was only fitting that they went with her at the end..
nitwit:..hmmmm, duct tape..never thought of doing that..will try it..
west has a fund raiser of some sort every weekend..and these people will freeze anything..will hit all the fund raisers..get food at each one and either freeze it or take it to a relative..we raise more money for a little poor town.makes me proud.

I never got in trouble for making threats in school. I did get suspended a number of times for fighting. Idle threats are made gy wimps.

Oh, I have to tag people now and guess what. You're it! It's the 5 random facts about yourself game. Now you have an annoying task.

How da you like me now? HAA!

Used to be that if someone said I'm gonna get my gun.....chances were that it was just a lot of hot air, said in anger. Can't take that kind of stuff for granted these days. Hope that kid is using his kiddie jail time to sit and think before he does something like that again.

my glucose went from 330 to 181...so I am getting better...

Great job! It's hard I know because everything has suger in it.

Have you hit a low yet?

My doc upped my med and I've been hitting really low. I was out for a walk and I felt like the ground was going to fall out from under me, like I was going to disappear. Got home and checked, it had dropped to 55. What a God awful feeling.

I am exercising now and that brings it down, so I may need a another med change on this.

I was working on my family tree and I found some papers that my great uncle had stolen 4 turkeys and the court papers sentenced him to 4 years hard labor for the theft. Whatever happened to those tough laws and punishment?

yellowdoggranny said...

cyber: i havent heard any more about it..west is covering their poop again..
nancy: so far i havent bottomed out yet..but my energy level is sky high..and im soo feeling back to normal..that's sad about your great uncle though...that's a little harsh for 4 turkeys...

I don't live in west Texas. I've never even been there, but after reading this I wish I did and feel like I have been there. Good for you on the glucose. This must be because of your strength of character. Be sure to post your picture in the roadkill sweatshirt.
