Oh my! Fair time is coming upon us... Ours begins in two weeks, not in our town but the next one over! We didn't go last year but that is all the kids are talking about this year. We will most likely go at the end of the week, but before the weekend as the lines to wait get so long. Usually the fair marks the season for cool weather to set in - and I am looking forward to that!

Hi everyone,

Just popping in to say Hi to all. Things are going OK here, still off work, at least until end of October!! Arm is improving slowly, probably start driving in 2 or 3 weeks.

Our weather which is supposed to be spring going into summer is not doing that at the moment. It is quite cool today, even cold and very strong winds.

Am starting to get quite excited about my dd's baby which id due in 8 1/2 weeks, she looks great and is doing very well.

Hugs to all, hope you are all ok.

Lynne great to see you here...glad your arm is improving every day...you must be getting so excited to be a grandma again...hugs

Today I did manage to get 10 loaves of Pumpkin Bread done...tomorrow I will cut up and clean and then cook 4 more pumpkins and that should do it for the year...Hubby went downstairs the other day and counted all the jars of pickles,beets,relish and peach preserves I did in the last few weeks...139 jars...I am so done with canning now...

Hope everyone has a wonderful and happy day...

Smiles & Hugs
Stay Well
Take Care...

Happy face Hello

Lynne, Happy your arm is improving and soon you'll be driving. Oh! So nice to be a Grandma again!! .............Patti, hope you and Gs are doing good. Hope you all get to go to the Fair and have a great time!..........Sharon, how's work? The very busy Christmas season is going to be here before long. I was in Wal-Mart Sunday and Dh got in the check out line where I call her Miss Wal-Mart was. Gees Wal-Mart would go broke if it wasn't for this lady!! She checks everything over 2 sometimes 3 times for prices when they are right in plain sight. The lady in front of us was complaining about this to her. Miss Wal-Mart told her it's store policy to check thoroughly for prices. Kind of funny to me as she does this even before she puts the stuff on the scanner. She holds up the whole line checking...never in my life have I ever seen a check out lady like her. It's funny because it's like a game to her and she wins if she finds a mistake. Isn't that what the scanner is for? No other check out person does this. We were in line longer then it took us to shop!!!-----Theresa you sure did do a lot of canning. Now my question to you is when do we all come to your place for supper?? LOL Have you finished with the pumpkins yet? The haystack cookies sound good. I think DIL makes a cookies similar to yours..........Bunny, my back feels pretty good today. You will be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow when you have your eye surgery. Good wishes to you...........Hello to everyone....Hugs Caroline

He is Theresa thanks. DR let him go back to school today just got back from taking him. He forgot some papers on kitchen table so Gina got them and picked us up as we were walking down the street to bus stop and then drove him on to school. He is still coughing but no throwing up or fever thank heaven.

Patti, sorry to hear Steven isn't feeling well. But the meds will kick in and he will be better very soon. He should be able to go to the fair Sun.

Lynne, glad to hear your arm is improving. It will be so nice when you can drive again.

Caroline, WalMart checkers have to be able to scan a certain number of items in a certain time span. I suspect this lady has a problem that is known to management. She may have a compulsive problem. WalMart does hire people with disabilities. For example we have a person who answers the phone and takes care of returns and sometimes the fitting room who uses a walker. We have a young man who has a slight retard problem who collects carts of cardboard boxes and bags of plastic from the frieght that is being put out on the floor. He only works a few hours every morning.
We have a gal with Down's who works in domestics. And we had a greeter who was in a wheelchair. WalMart also hires senior citzens who don't get enough from SS to live on.

Bunny, praying your eye surgery goes well.

Glad all those bad backs are feeling better.

It will cost $4154.00 for the furance and installation. They will be here next Tues.
I will be working longer.

Sharon, it is always something isn't it? Dh just told me this morning we need 4 new tires. The papers are full of talk about how high the heating oil is going to be again. I figure we are just not suppose to catch up.
Patti, so glad Steven is better. My olest dd get it 2 or 3 times a year and she coughs from her toes.
I hope everyone is feeling better.
My 3 are still having medical problems . It seems odd they are all having problems at the same time.
O well it is supppse to be hot and sunny out ao I'm going to enjoy it.
