I'm still not seeing little Hop a Long, but i saw one that got up from laying on the ground, and limped for a bit. Gosh they all look alike so, who knows? Sure hope that was it, and that leg had gotten well.
I need to be doing other things this morning, and here i am, typing away. And that council meeting is Monday. Like my bro G says tho, we'll give it a shot, if it works,,great, if not,,so be it. I would love to have lots of supporters show up.
I sure love all the pics yall put on your blogs. Most of those places i've never seen. And won't ever. Next best, is the pics.
Leap year,,last day of the month. Tomorrow was my Dad's birthday. My son was due on that day, and he told me if he came that day, i would have to name him after him. I already had his name, so i was glad he showed up 6 days later. lololol. There was already a cousin with that name so it was being passed down.
Gotta get ,,doing stuff, so yall tc, and

I stopped at subway yesterday and got one of those footlong chicken thangs, yuk, and couldn't eat but just a few bites. Got a lot of leftovers,,,lol. Gonna try some more for lunch. Don't know if it's the bread, 9 grain ww, or the chicken chunks, but it didn't want to go down.
The news just showed a big white bull loose in Dallas and how they tried to catch it.. hilarious. One view showed a policeman on a moped, with the bull chasing him,,,He was trying to fly! Someone showed up with fence segments, and got him surrounded, loaded up.
Know this is short, but i'm so late, so yall tc, and

For the first time yesterday, i had to remove a comment, made from who else but,,,,,Anonymous. It was an attack on me for stating something in my blog they didn't like, and was filled with filthy words. I will never allow that, and i think most others agree. Now i'm gonna say something else, then i'll drop it. I believe in practicing what you preach. I don't say one thing, then turn around and do another. Case closed.
Did any of yall watch the grammy's? I watched some of the red carpet stuff, but then a movie came on on PBS, and not much to say about that one,,,either, lololol. Something about losing a curiosity shop, British. I lmao one time, when Angelina Jolie was on, and the group that came on stage, the one on the right, mimicked her stance,,was hilarious. He got it right on the nose. Sticking his leg out, hand on hip, twisting and turning,,,hahahahahah.
My internet tech called and asked how things were going,,i told him great,,and i swear,,not one minute later, i'm offline. I fool with it for a while, doing no good, and finally, just let it go. I had called him back and left a message, so i just waited for his call back. Well, for some reason, the internet came back on, just like that. Right before he called me back. It was off about 45 minutes. We decided to just wait and see. I told him i thot the new modem was the problem, and he thinks my line to it, is. So, if i'm gone, you know why.
I keep being amazed at the spring weather, have to keep reminding myself it's Feb. My weeds need mowing again. Birds are everywhere. (Not my martins, yet) Butterflies, bugs, all fooled. Buzzards have been circling in hundreds, migrating. They will do circles above the river. Hawks do too. We don't have the turkey buzzard any more, don't know why. They disappeared about the same time as these others showed up. My Mother hit one one time on her windshield, and threw up the whole time she was hosing it off. She had a weaker stomach than me, i guess, and i never knew how she made it as a nurse. She worked til she was 79, and NO that's not a typo. Came down with a bad case of pneumonia and never made it back. Same with me. I've never been the same as before that bad pneumonia. It's been almost 4 years, (quit smoking at that time) and i'm just now trying to walk. It's not my lungs, it's just out of shape bad. I know i have to use it, or lose it. I made it a 1/3 of a mile yesterday,,lolololol. Sat down a few times,,on head stones at the cemetery. Maybe my r&r shoes do help. lololol.
Ok,, enough said,,yall tc, and

I soo enjoyed the bar b q last nite,,but came home by 9;45. It was about 20 miles away, on a little narrow 2 lane, so i didn't want to get too tired, not able to see good. I do have good nite vision, but when i start shutting down,,,don't wanna be driving. We all laughed til we hurt. I was the only senior,,,lol, but like i said, these kids were around my house a lot back when. I told the hosts, that as a mom i was so honored to be there. The host was my son's best friend thru hi school, and was around most of the time. Together they look like mutt n jeff. He's like 6-4, 250, son 5-10, 120. lololol. One time i went to the grocery store on Sat. morning, and his mom was there and asked how my son was. I told her he was still sleeping, so i assumed ok. Then,,she told me they had a fight the nite before! And i'm thinking OMG,, son might be hurt bad. Found out later, son J had run from him all nite trying NOT to fight, but when he grabbed him by the shirt collar and ripped it,,he did one of his spinning hits right on the nose, knocked him out cold, thot he killed him, Finally got him up and in the car, took him home, put him to bed. Next morning first thing, went to check on him. J practiced every day on a punching bag, and size sure didn't matter. Speed and muscles did. lololol. In all the fights he was in, he was never hit. His friends liked to watch him and would instigate one if they could. Anyway, sure was great last nite.
BB was talking about jumping under a fence one time, well,,,i did too. I had gone out to get a cow for my grandma to milk, and she's walking right along the trail, me behind,,,thinking i was doing it,,,and all of a sudden that darn thang just stopped! Turned around and looked at me,,thot hey, wth am i doing?,,put her head down and charged,, She had long horns too,,,, I was young and fast, and that fence wasn't too far away, sooo,,i sure didn't take time to crawl thru it or over it,,i went down under it! Barely made it too. Sure never volunteered to do that again. Of course, they all laughed about it, thot it was real funny, but i never trusted a cow again! Failed to see the humor in that situation. I coulda been ,,,well, gored anyway. lololol. My bros were the ones that tried to ride the calves. Never did much good at that either.
All my valentine flowers are gone, just threw the last away. Keep looking toward that spot. lolol.
That's all folks,,tc and
Saturday, February 25, 2012
I'm going out to the lake later with my son and gf, for a bar b q. I can't stay late any more, so i'll be home by 10,,my bed time,,lololol. About 9 i start shutting down, and can't make it much longer. Do yall do that?
Had to laugh when i read rvsue today,,,hahahaha,,after all of her talk about visitors, and she goes marching in on some new campers...lmaooooo.....Uninvited at that! I'll probably catch a lot of flak about saying this too, but just BRING IT ON.
I looked and looked for little Hop a Long at the park yesterday, but never saw him, but that doesn't mean much. Even with the big group on the bank there were always a few still in the water. The geese did show up, hadn't seen them for a couple of days. I love it when they all, 13, come flying over squawking, and land in the river.
I didn't walk hardly any tho, too windy and cold. Like i said before, it sometimes helps to skip a day.
I got this FANTASTIC email from my cousin about our cars back in the 50s and 60s, forwarded it to some of yall. I know i'll watch it again, and save for future viewings.. Let me know if you liked it too,.
Wow,,noon already. One more thing tho, yesterday none of my games would work. Not even the free cell. I rebooted a couple of times, nothing helped. So strange. Today they're fine. I like www.onlinebandit.com the best. You play with real people. I've always loved games and played domino games, and card games all my life. I was in a bridge club, but have let that go. Need to get back into it. Anyway, any of you that like games, that's a good site. I play ludo and painted yatzy, but there's others too. Ludo is like an old game we had, wahoo.
Ok,,time to git,,yall tc and

Our river has been up a few feet, but it, nor the others, seem to help the lakes levels. Buchanan is still about 30 feet low, but that's from the fullest. From normal, maybe 24 feet down. Did read that the El Nina? would be leaving so we would have more of a normal summer....lol,, (rare we get rain here). But i've seen our river get on a huge rise in June. Gosh, i think we got a hundred year rise a few years ago, in June. I see bluebonnets everywhere so there will be lots of wild flowers this year. We turn blue,, then red,,,then yellow. Everywhere you can see, some years. I WILL get pics.
Ok folks,,on to other things, but yall tc, and
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Jojo, you are still using that double word verification, so i'm commenting here. Where is this place you're going from where you are now? How long will you stay?
Had to take one of my blogs i follow,,off. Can't believe they were asking for donations on it for something,,and that was all it was. Go stand on a street corner. Mr Nimble,,just don't do that kind of thing. Also, all the political ones are going too.!!! Why do people think they can talk you into changing your beliefs to theirs and start preaching about it??? Yep, gonna clean em up. No donations, no politics, and NO religion.!! Got that?? hahahaha and i mean it. Sure glad there's still the GOOD ones.
Here it is, noon, so i'd better get this published, quit my ranting, and eat my lunch. Yall tc and
Tuesday, February 21, 2012
These were my valentine flowers, almost gone now. Camera was in the car, and I just never brought it in til yesterday. The ones on the right were white carnations dyed by my son into rainbow colors. They also gave me a rainbow colored whirligig for outside. The ones on the left were from my dotter. Wish they showed up better here, but,,,I’m just not good with a camera. Never cared to be, so,,this is what you get. lol.
This was a different duck, and was the only one I saw.
Turtles sunbathing, til the gull landed. Just one stayed and stared at it. The others are circling around the rock. There were lots of them in the water.
Ok, what’s going on with blogger now??? The blogs on my follow list aren’t showing the right time posted. This has been going on for a couple of days now, driving me nuts,,,nuttier,,,anyway,,,lol. For instance, it’s 10 am here, and HJs blog on top of list showing it was posted 9 hours ago. At 1 am??? Is anybody else having this problem? I did cure the email notification thang, by using the embedded comments. And that gave me the reply at the bottom of those, so all’s good on that part.
My son came by last nite with some paperwork he wanted me to interpret for him, so I just went thru it and made a summery. Where it took SS 5 pages to say something, I had a short list of those. He finally got his disability which I couldn’t believe he was turned down the first time! With all his spine doctors helping him, and stacks of paperwork verifying this since he was about 22 years old,,it took 2 times. Now he can get that MRI his doc wants to do, and go from there. The spinal block shots just last so long. There’s a calcium deposit growing into his spine and pinching on the nerves. It can put him flat sometimes. All these 24 or so years, he’s had to pay out of his own pocket. (For 5 spinal surgeries) He is limited on what he can do now, like sit or ride. It was his choice not to do this until now. This has happened all up and down his spine. Has a lot of fusions,,metal plates. Can’t pass inspections with those wands…lol. Has to show his back and front.
My walking is getting a tiny bit better. Still a force to do it, but,,,,HAVE to. The weather helps, makes me want to get out and do something. I look at my yard, and used to have so pretty a one, but now,,,just survivors there. Can’t get out and take care of it any more. I noticed my pond is almost full of rain water, so I need to get some fish in there, for the mosquito larvae. Maybe just some minnows this time because it will dry up in the summer. Not gonna buy goldfish any more. (bought them at a bait shop)
Ok,,gonna make a move,,,so yall tc, and
Monday, February 20, 2012
I'm still LMAOOOOO about DDs post!!! Gotta walk slow to remember what i'm doing. OMG,,,hahahahahaha. Tears,,,,DD,,that's the bestest i've EVER heard! If i try it and it works,,i will apologize,,hahahahaha. Wonder if it will make me remember today is a holiday.
Just heard the wind pick up, not gonna do much tho. Yesterday was so nice, i even walked a bit further than i had been doing. OOO yeah,,need to get my pedometer out,,right now! Done, and of course, has a dead battery. NP, get one later.
Ok,,all i've got for today, going to games,,,yall tc, and

DD thx for removing that 2 word thingy. And Jojo,,didn't comment cause of it. Couldn't read the first one anyway. It's always good to hang out with your kids. I never used that verification anyway, and never had problems,,put it on briefly to see if it would help keep spam from email. BUT, NOT gonna do the 2 thang.
I read an article in the paper today, about alzheimers, and then there was a list of things to let you know if you have normal aging, MCI, (never heard of this), or alzheimers. I've spent an hour trying to find that on the statesman's site, BUT, it's not there yet. MCI= mild cognitive impairment. I'm in the normal. When i can find it later, i'll put it on here. Last nite, i was at my bro Bs house, and G was there too, playing pool, and it came up about a best friend way back,,,what her maiden name was. WELL, i knew it as well as my own, but i could NOT remember it!!! She had also been a classmate of Gs. We discussed this for so long,,i told them i would look it up in my year book, and,,i did. But, what i'm saying is,,why didn't i remember that?,,And then today, there's all this in the paper about age related memory loss. hahahahaha... One of the symptoms of normal,,is you joke about it...(gotta quit doing that,,,lololol)
A favorite cousin called last nite from Sherman. He said he'd just bought a new boat, ready to load up with fish,,,hear that yall?,,He has lake denison, and can catch tons of fish. Brings down gallons to have huge fish frys. Leaves me the leftovers,,YUMMM. (not cooked leftovers) He's just had a stent put in one of his legs, and next week, has to have a vein replaced in the other. In good mood tho,,,we got to laughing about something,,,( memory thing ?) and i almost choked!! He's had lots of health problems,, and i HATE it. Our uncle, that lived there too, taught him all he knew about fishing. He could catch fish anywhere, any time. Looked like a full blood Indian,,,which some of us do, showing our heritage. I'm very proud of that.
This darn silicon thing i put over my keyboard, is wearing out, i think. It keeps getting wrinkles. They came in a pack of 2, but,,,none of the places around here sells them. I had to order online. Sure protects it, and i haven't had sticky keys since i started using it. I was told at one place, Office Depot?,,(memory thing,,again,,) that the new keyboards didn't need protecting. Well,,,ok,,, But,, And just so yall know,,i know where the other one is,,,hahahaha.
Guess that's it for today,, unless i find that list, yall tc, and
Saturday, February 18, 2012
I think it rained most of the nite, but have no idea how much we got, my gauge showing about 1/2" but i know that's not right. Still raining sometimes. wooohoooo.
Ok folks,,i've had it with that double word thangy, just not gonna do it any more. So if i'm not commenting on your blog, you'll know why. There's always that one word you can't read so you have to redo, at least once. And i am gonna complain to google about it too. I made sure my settings are changed. If not, let me know, and i will reset them.
Gosh, i didn't realize Monday was a holiday. Good thing i went to the library yesterday, cause i finished my last book last nite. But i did get 3 more. I got the one about J C Dugard. If autobiographies are up to date, i like to read them. But if they are like, 15 years old,,,leaves you wondering about those years. Not gonna read any old ones any more. lol. There's still a couple i want to read, one by Gene Simmons, and the other about the guitarist in the Rolling Stones. What's his name,,,lol. OOOO yeah!!! Keith Richards!,,,Darn,,,this memory of mine,, I blame it on some of my meds,,,lol,,good excuse, right?
Well,,short stuff today,,like most of the time,,nothing going on. So yall tc, and
Been messing around in Blogger forum,,NO ONE likes that 2 word thang! Not sure if this is true or not, but someone said they couldn't change the settings on it, and the answer was to go to the old blogger interface. Hmmm,,,i think i'm on that just cause i didn't like the new one.
Friday, February 17, 2012
When my modem showed up about 2:30 pm yesterday, i unpacked it, plugged everything in, and OOOO NOOO,,,no electric power! Out to the breaker box i went,,,twice,,,didn't help. How can this be? Started bypassing stuff, power strips,,etc,,and thot i found the problem,,one of the power strips. But,,still can't get online. Got the power now, but..... Finally took the splitter off where i plug into the wall jack, went direct, and,,,worked! Now i know i need a new splitter. Well, i didn't fool with that yesterday, it could wait. So that's how it went, was too late to do anything by then, so just logged off. lol. But then,, back online early today, getting the router working to my laptop, and NOW,,i have found out my printer won't work from here... Not gonna mess with it NOW.
They are giving me a big credit on my account for this. Verizon is still my favorite ISP.
I've tried catching up on the blogs, and have done most of them, but i didn't leave any comments. Saw where BB made it to Falcon,,and DD has lots of tadpoles,,,
Jojo got her MV fixed, rvsue doing something about her oil gauge,,,,But gosh,,was taking so long,, i just quit,,so i could post this.
Like you DD, we were predicted to have about 2 1/2" of rain, but,,won't ever make it. Now the flash flood map doesn't even include us. Maybe you tho.
My sis N called me about 7 this morning, and i had been up but gone back to bed, all upset with her JohnnyBoy, (cat),,that was real bad. He had awakened her about 4, crying with pain, and she had been holding him,,waiting til the vet could see him. She had him 15 years. He didn't make it. When she got to the vet's and put him on the table, he died. I know everyone has lost beloved pets, and it's so hard. He was never allowed outside. She does have 2 outside ones still, and one is gonna have kittens. Gosh, we might have to bury her, when her little doggie goes. That's the one i put on Youtube singing Taco Bell.
I cooked yesterday,,,,lololol. Made up some chicken and rice,,kinda threw stuff together. Biscuits too. I'll eat off of it for a few meals, then freezer time.
Anyway, i'm back,,and yall tc, an
Monday, February 13, 2012
I drove out to the park,,being careful on the bridges, (was no ice tho) and watched the snow/sleet for a while. There were about 50 or 60 of the little black ducks on the water. I even saw Hop a Long when they got out on the bank.
Welll,,, i didn't intend to, but,,,ended up watching all of the Grammys show. It was good, and i liked almost all the singing acts. I missed Jennifer Hudson tho, had gone on to bed. Saw it today on the news. Didn't know who Adele was, til last nite, but,,,i sure did like her. She won a lot. I didn't think Glen Campbell was gonna make it,,,well, remember the song. Not sure he did, but what a great performance. Beach Boys,,great. I thot they did a great job on short notice, about WH.
Gosh, got off on something else, forgot about this,,,hahahaha,,losing my mind. Found too much other stuff to fool with. Made copies of stuff on river access, got off into facebook,,just wasted time. So,,late now,, yall tc, and
Sunday, February 12, 2012
Made it to HEB yesterday, late. Got a big load of groceries, my once a month shopping. Stopped and ate out at the lake,,where my g/dotter works, and gosh,,it was getting COLD. Not like this morning tho. Been cold since i got home, seems like. Bed was warm, but i was up and down most of the nite. Not much sleep. I got a kid's choice off the menu, a cheese enchilada, with green sauce,,chili con queso on the side, with pico in it. And then,, just ate about 1/2, brought the rest home. My feet kept hurting during the nite, even tho i took an aleve. Well, this morning i saw why. I hadn't taken the med for them. Can't believe that one dose does that.
Snow flurries?,,,,Sleet?,,,not yet. It's a maybe tho.
O yeah. The 6 year old boy that the lion drug off, is back in the hospital, they think an infection. Well,,,DUH. Still don't know how to add a link here, but the paper i read is: www.statesman.com. Since i can't seem to make it clickable, you can copy and paste it. And i know about using "link" above. It's not what i used to do. Lot of trouble if you ask me...
Not much in plans today. Need to do more research on the river thing. I'm still getting a few signatures every day. Yall tc, and
Saturday, February 11, 2012
Didn't see the little black ducks at the park, yesterday. Went all thru it,,no ducks. They could have been upstream from the park i guess. I'm still watching Hop a Long. I thot it was actually limping on that foot part of the time, so i'm wanting to keep an eye on it. That was so much better than the dragging.
I haven't done anything worth talking about lately. Same ol, same ol, ya know. On the puter too much, lol. I did finish one of Diann Chamberlain's books, one more to go. They are hard to put down too. I think these are the last 2 i hadn't read. Not sure how many are left of Lee Child's either. I think i've almost read all of them too.
Hate it, when i have to start looking for a good author again.
Can anybody put click on links in their blogs? I used to, but now it doesn't work. What changed? HELP....lol. PLEASE. I wasted hours yesterday trying to figure this out. I made changes but nothing worked. I also added word verification after reading on one, that that might help with my spam in my email. I also took off email link. (where u get an email for every comment).
Today was soooo Sunday when i got up,,even looked for the coupon books in the paper,,,hahahaha,,,thot, gosh,,strange,,,none today. I have the calendar on my screen,,so why don't i just look at it every day???,,, I do read my sticky notes. I'm in the old format of blogger. Just noticed,,,llololol. Changed that too.
OK,,,time to git,,,things to do, places to go,,,stuff to eat,,,etc etc,,,yall tc, and

Never tried fishing like THAT! Well, getting there to do it,,,
Jojo, these are the little ducks, hope somebody can identify them,,,I can’t find them in my bird book. I watched a long time yesterday, and was close, but I never saw the one that was crippled the day before. Sooo hope it got ok. It never put it’s foot down at all, the day before. Hopped on one, but seemed to swim ok.
Both bros came by this morning, so this is gonna be short. Also, it was after 3 am before I went to sleep last nite. Think that calls for a nap!
Need to do a little research on “applied” right of way, here in TX. It’s kinda like a grandfather clause. If a trail, road, whatever, has been in use for a long time, no one can shut it off, even the property owner. Was told it held up in most cases when someone tried to shut off one. That would definitely help us,,, Bro G has almost 100 signatures,,, and I found 2 men that are gonna be tremendous help. I’m going by and talk to a former city councilwoman that loves to buck the system, and see if we can get her on our side.
Ok gone for today,,yall tc, and
