I have been so sad today. Could not figure out why either. It is dd's 19th birthday!!! Niether grandparents could be bothered to send thier dgd a card much less a gift. Not even a phone call. Now that I know why I was sad, I can concentrate on her birthday. She baked her cake and decorated it. She insists on doing this. lol She used the bright neon food colors. It is so pretty! Wild too but completly Jasmine. She makes her dinner too. lol Stuffed manicotti. Yummy! I have taught them well, haven't I?

Happy Birthday Donna!!

Theresa everyone here says 'crap on a cracker' now. You started a trend!

I don't get notices often the site is a pain to use. I will be so happy when they upgrade.

Here is a crazy thought if anyone would like to send dd and then on the 17th for dds2, a birthday card please pm or email me. I talked to dd and she is hurt. I would like to do something to make it up to her and surprise them both. I could be nasty and post it on FaceBook for the community to see what our families are really like ...... but I won't. I will be doing some hard thinking about sending cards to our parents from now on. It doesn't feel right to send them cards when they ignore the kids like this. I think they should get the same treatment.
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!

I have finally gotten all the posts read.

Barbszy, so sorry about your FIL. Prayers for all the family.

Crafty, belateded Happy Birthday wishes. I hope your planned trip goes well.

Karen, a belated Happy Anniversary to you and dh.

Theresa, you have been busy. Sorry about the tent. Hopefully Glen will be able to find some poles or posts or something that he can use to make it work. I wouldn't buy anything more from Sears either.
Come here anytime to vent about anything. We all do. Friends listen.

DeBora, glad you finally got the school problem taken care of. What a run around that was. There was no reason for all that to have happened.

Bar_bar, sounds like you are enjoying school. Glad you are registered for work with more than one school.

Sammi, sorry to hear the little boy is bouncing off the walls. That is a shame his dad didn't confirm the appointment. That kid needs professional help. Glad work is picking up for you.

Sueanne, the watermelons look yummy.

Joy, sorry to hear you broke down on the highway and had to get a tow.

I know there was more to reply too but have forgotten what else I read.

Our first night of vacation, it was so cool, we had to have a fire going in the fireplace.
Sun. was a better day weather wise. I started reading my book. Buck went fishing.
Mon and Tues I ended up going fishing late afternoon through early evening. 4 1/2 hours each time. I cannot stand being out there that long at a time. I decided that was enough fishing for me. Buck on the other hand was out early in the morning and back between 12-1PM. Out again in the afternoon.
Tues morning we had a thunder storm. Over with by noon so he was out in the boat in a flash.
Wed. we did go out to eat at Little Bohemia Lodge, hideout of John Dillinger. Babyface Nelson and other gangsters. They put us in what they call the Bullet Room. Best place they could have put us as that is where the bullet holes are in the wall and windows. They have put new windows in front of the old ones so the bullet holes and broken out glass panes are still there. Took pictures.
Thurs, beautiful weather day.
Finished my book. Read Stephen King's 'The Stand'. Also did cross stitching. And had a book of Find the Words while I was up there.
Took a walk every day and enjoyed the woods. Went looking for pine cones. Buck fished 10-11 hours a day total. We came back witih 30 perch, 3 walleye, 1 bass and 6 crappies. Very poor fishing. They just weren't biting worth a darn. With that much time spent out on lakes for a week, we should have had 200 or more to bring back.
Fri. it rained all day. We packed up and left. Drove acorss to Lanoa and visited with Buck's brother for a while. On the way home we had a black bear run acorss the road in front of us. We did stop in time. First time either one of us saw a bear cross a major highway in daylight. Not unusual on a country road. There are a lot of bear and wolves in the north woods. More than there used to be. Even some moose have moved in. Saw deer tracks right next to our cottage.
So Buck did a lot of fishing and I did a lot of relaxing.
We were very glad to get back home. No place like home. My own bed and comfortable furniture.
I missed my computer and everyone here.
Our bird was very happy when we walked in the door. He started squawking and whisteled. 3 cats came to see us. The youngest one of course was mad at being left. She came around to her friendly self around midnight.
Buck mowed lawn today, I pulled beets and picked some tomatos. Got some of the laundry done.

Hi to everyone.

Happy Sunday to everyone. DD#2 and my niece went to Dorney Park today for a last of the season amusment park rides. Don't think they will get back there before the end of September when the park official closes.

Dh and I will just hang out at the house today. We heard thru the grapevine that the VFW bar got hit really bad from the state inspection last week. One of the violations was the dishwasher that they use for all the beer glasses. Dh always delimed it once a month. I guess nobody has done it sense the last time he did it the end of May beginning of June. I kind of thought it was funny. They probably think dh made a phone call but he didn't. Dh said let them blame it on him he doesn't care. They will slowly realize how much he really did for that bar for free.
Have a wonderful day.
