The 4Th of July was a good day...I asked the girls to come over for a BBQ....they came..It was fun and I enjoyed it so much..I had BBQ chicken,potato salad, deviled eggs,Bush's BBQ beans(damn they're good)and garlic bread.(which
I didn't burn).I had bought a bag of chips too, but forgot to put it out..Made ice tea, and had cherry vanilla Dr.Pepper..meant to get regular DP but got the wrong one..but ended up being a good thing as Jamie loves cvdp..good on me..
They were 'starving' and we had a nice dinner..Well, it would have been nice if Little Asshole hadn't tried to climb up in their plates..I bought out the spritzer and they cracked up laughing..all he had to do is see it and he took off running down the hall way..They thought he was so cute..but they found out really fast why he is called Little Asshole.(Jamie used to have a cat named Twat..so bad names for animals runs in the family)It was a steady stream of 'oh, he's so cute..damn, he bit me.'...'how pretty he is grandma...ouch..he scratched the inside of my mouth.'...To make it even better, his beautiful blue eyes have turned a yellow green...so he truly is a green-eyed monster...
I finally got all the pictures into albums and they went through them to pick out ones they wanted copies of..Jenny is putting together a assortment of pictures of Jason's grandpa and my Daddy..who is her great grandpa..I kept trying to get her to take pictures of me and Daddy or Daddy and the boys and me...she said.."NO, I just want your Daddy."..which had me muttering 'bitch' a lot..we were giggling and insulting each other..They were a little surprised at one picture of me where I weighed no more than 85 lbs, I was about 18 years old..you could actually see my hip bones poking through my slacks..hurmph..those days are long gone..I don't know about them..but I had a great day...I know they were full and left laughing..They were going to go watch fireworks.
I got to hear them up close and personal as some nut job in the apts, next to us were shooting off firecrackers all night long...scared the crap out of the cats..well, nothing scares Little Asshole but did send him under the bed a couple of times..
We are still getting rain..we're pushing 40 inches of rain...some places in Texas have had over 44 straight days of rain..some one put a call in to Noah..I keep singing that song by Johnny Cash..."How highs the water Daddy...?...
6 feet high and rising."..All this rain has brought out the mosquito's, and allergies which is pissing me off..between the itching of bites and sneezing..I'm not a happy camper...One good thing is the smog is better..not that we have a lot in West, but Dallas does..so that's a plus..Something that was pretty scary was a article about the rain.A half inch of rain is now 9 inches in terms of impact on a community.
