I've got a stopped up,, almost, sewer line, and i have called my mower man to come and help me. Left a message, haven't heard back yet. G has a snake, so maybe we can get it going without me having to call a plumber. That's all he does,,,use a snake. And you know how they charge!
Called our mayor a bit ago, and NOTHING has been done about the gate. I was told they were gonna talk to the man Wed., but they haven't even done that. I kinda made it clear we were at the end of our patience, so ,,,a couple of more weeks, and we will get back in their face if nothing has been done yet. We want it finished!!!
All i've got,,,too,,,so yall tc, and

I got all my laundry rounded up, and then when i took a shower, my drain gurgled.,...Now i can't do laundry til later, sure don't need an overflowing drain. J went off with my bro B out to a ranch, but i called and he said he'd come by and help me try to run a hose into it, see if i can unstop it. He had called earlier saying how much better he felt today. Last time the drain did this, i stood by the washer, and let a little out at a time...BUT, i'm afraid i'll miss it and have backup.
Forecast is 100 here today. Think i'm staying home,,,lol. When it's that, it'll be 105 or so. Always more. We needed Isaac,,, Got winds from the NE from it.
I don't know what happened on Amer Got Talent, had to record it last nite. When S called i told her,,,'don't tell me",,, lol. That's the one where there were 12 acts, and i voted for 9,,,hahahahah,,,just 3 could stay. But,,they were all so good, i sure couldn't decide. So,,,the results are what i recorded.

Can't think of a thing i have to do today. Maybe a load of laundry later. Or tomorrow,,,
DD was talking about a missing blogger,,,When someone posts every day, it really does worry you when they become missing. At our age, who knows what has happened?
Today is the day the pharmacy delivers my refills every week. Just 2 today. They show up before noon, which is perfect timing for me.
Little Jude,,lol,,,ran out of cat food earlier, and just sat there, and every time i got up,,,here he was, sitting there waiting,,,Had to refill that thing before my 2nd cup of coffee!!
O WOW,,,last nite on America's Got Talent,,,out of the 12, i voted for 9!!! hahahaha,,How can anybody pick the best one? They were all the WOW factor. Only 3 could go thru, too,. Tonite shows those.
Ok gotta go, yall tc, and

This is my vine I’ve been talking about. Guess I could have watered it once or twice and it would look a little better.
It’s been blooming all summer, and has had more on it than this.
My son came over this morning,,,woke me up calling, about 8;30, and I told him to come on over. We’ve had a good time. He ate waffles with me, then later we went thru some picture albums,,,more to do. He’s taking one of the LazyBoy chairs,,,,,we made a trade,,,lol, oil changes. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa…. Still one more to go,,,,the newer one. He liked the older one.
So, this is it for today,,,yall tc, and

There were chicken wings too, another friend of hers brought and cooked. Yummmm.
We keep having little showers go around us, none here. How can it be raining every day up there in AZ? Amazing.
BB was asking about what diuretics were. I take 2 different ones, and then one pill for blood pressure also has it in it. I have to go a lot! but i don't have swollen ankles any more. And my blood pressure is great. With it doing that, i don't watch what i eat, but never was a big salt eater. When i was a kid, about 12, my kidneys quit working. This ol doc here put me on a liquid med, and no salt, no fried for about 2 years. I got used to the no salt and now i eat a little, but never add it to anything. I don't remember what the disease was, but my kidneys started working when i started all that, and i've never had a problem since then. Mother always separated my food and baked it, or whatever.
Ok, time for waffles, yall tc, and
Sunday, August 26, 2012
I didn't do a post yesterday just because i didn't want to. I needed a day off. And today, not in the mood either.
About 3;30 yesterday, there was a small plane crash just outside of town. Both men were from Kerrville, and died in the crash. It was an instructor and his student learning take offs, and landings. Why they were doing it here, i don't know.
Just got an invite out to g/dotters for pasta. Her birthday is Monday, so i can take her Queen's Wreath.
There's enough bulbs to set in maybe several places. They multiply. lol,,,like at least a dozen or more.
Guess that's enough outa me today,,,but,,,yall tc, and
Friday, August 24, 2012
I had asked the friend cutting my hair, if i could get another start of that vine that grows up on one side of her house, so,,,after she cut the hair, we went there and i got some of the bulbs. It's Queen's Wreath, and i love it. After it's established, you're thru with it, and it has the most beautiful pink clusters of blooms, all summer. I'll try to get pics later. I think i might have watered mine just a couple of times during the drought all last year. Anyway, these are for my g/dotter's birthday on the 27th. I put them in a pot when i got home, and that way she can transplant them later.
Still nothing going on. Dog days getting closer to the end. Just went and picked up one of the burgers i bragged so much about, and not going back. It's gone up, and just wasn't good today. I like onions, and i asked for them,,got a couple of pieces. Couple of pieces of lettuce too. Lots of dripping mayo, ( i like mustard) and the burger patty was still thick. Maybe just too much. I just can't pay that for lunch, or if i do, i want enough for 2 meals. Well, i might go back for the other sandwiches.
Ok ,,,nap time, at least a little, so yall tc, and
Thursday, August 23, 2012
My mother and dotter both had their thyroids taken out. It's something i've always kept a check on. My dotter was 16 when she had hers done. lol Wish mine was more active.
Got an appointment for a hair cut later today,,,yeaaaaaaa.... Been getting it almost shaved on the sides, and most of the back. Love it this way. The top is longer. Not quite a mohawk. But that would be ok,,,lolololol. I see a lot like this on tv, etc. Never was one to stay in the past with my hair dos. Back in high school,, i cut it in a flat top, with duck tails,,, worked with my hair. Not so good with fine hair. Anyway, i always liked change and was the first to do them most of the time.
Did i ever tell you about going to a New Year's Eve party,,,and my niece SS,,yeah that one,,had given me a blinking head band? Got that out just before midnite, and at the right time, turned it on,,,,i was the lite of the party! lolololol. Have no idea where she got those,,,she was just a kid. Somewhere her dad played i guess.
O geez,,,somehow i got myself put on that lifeline thing here in TX, on my cell phone. Well, i couldn't figure out how i was getting lower and lower on minutes, when i had had so many that rolled over on my Net 10. HA!!! I get 125 a month, plus 60 (?)) days, but that is leaving me short on minutes. i could buy an air card and add them that way. Anyway, i'm gonna try it. I know,,, i'll have zillions of days, but maybe the added minutes will let me go a long time...

Gosh, that America's Got Talent was so good last nite,, and these were acts brought back after being voted off! Wild cards. That DeLeon kid,,,that looks like OMG,,,don't know what,,,was back. He's the one that dresses gothic, has WEIRD blue eyes (contacts) and sings OPERA! He shocked everybody when he first sang, then the next time, nerves got him and he froze up, got voted off. But he was great last nite.
I'm still lol about BBs tv,,and still don't know if he is not getting signals, or really doesn't have a tv set. Hard to imagine not getting something on one. Even here, you can get one channel with not much of an antenna, the tower is right outside town.
I turned off my ACs yesterday, and they are still off. This is TX !!! In August!!! How can that be?
Well, yall tc, and
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
I feel really bad today. Gosh, i'm tired of this. Seeing my doc tomorrow.
Bro G and i went to the city council meeting yesterday, and all we did, was tell them we had waited long enough,, wanted to get it finished, over and done with. I was just there for a few minutes and came on home. We will now get put on the agenda for the next one, and see what happens. I intend to put a letter in the paper and get all the support we can to show up too.
All i got,,,so yall tc, and
Monday, August 20, 2012
I nap all nite,,,that's all i can call it. I sleep a couple of hours, then wake up all nite long. It's rare i sleep 4 or 5 hours straight. Guess it's just part of aging. Doesn't matter, not doing anything....lol.
Js bringing Jr burgers by for lunch, should be here any time. Sonic has some pretty good ones. For a couple of $s,, i can have a meal.
So yall tc, and
Sunday, August 19, 2012
We've had light showers most of the day and nite, and when i looked at my gage late yesterday, about a 1/4", but a little more during the nite,.. More today i think. I opened a few windows when i got up this morning, felt so good. Didn't take long to shut them back,,lololol.
I think i'm ready for fall. This heat wears me down,,,more every year. Used to hate winter, now i look forward to it. I love the rain and never get tired of that. I have a metal roof so i can hear it.
Did i ever tell yall about waking up one nite, and my whole pillow was wet, and a lot more around it? I thot i had a bad nose bleed or something! Got the lite on,,and my roof was leaking right over my head, looking like my ceiling was fixing to fall on me!! It was sagging a lot. The ceiling is tiles, and down on my feet, was another spot too, not quite as bad. I got up and managed to shove my bed far enough to get out from under that ceiling, but had to try to sleep on the side that wasn't wet. And hope the ceiling didn't come crashing down. Had a time, getting all that dry the next day! Called bro B,,,said i needed a roof! That's his thing,,,too. Metal roofs and cement work. Caught him just right, so in a few days i had a new roof, even tho he said it was probably just a few nails that had worked almost out. I had already collected from my insurance company for one after a bad hail storm, so i had the money. So, add that onto everything else i replaced here,,,lol.
I moved in here at the end of August,,,way back, and didn't bother to turn the gas on til later.....WELL, when we did, it spewed under the house,,pipes old and busting...had to turn it right back off, get all those pipes replaced too.That was after doing all the water, sewer lines. I was singing,,,ooooo woe is me..... lol
I didn't pay much for this house, and the property (lot) is worth it to me. Love the location, the quiet. AND,,,bought it from bro B,,,lololol. He did say one time he felt bad about all the things that came up unexpected. It's still worth more than what i have in it, so i'm satisfied.
I went to our new Alco store late yesterday,,,wasn't impressed. Doubt if i shop there much. They didn't have the couple of things i needed, butter was one, so that means i still have to get those elsewhere.
Ok,,yall tc, and
Saturday, August 18, 2012
After those shots my son got, it takes about 2 days to get better. The back drains down into his legs, making them swell, so he has to stay off of them quite a bit. The shots consist of a mixture of steroids, antibiotics, and antiinflamatory. He got 2 this time, in 2 spots. He' the only one that the doc doesn't put to sleep, by Js choice. They start working immediately. The doc said, after looking at his MRI, that he would take the plates out of the lower back, and fix one spot there, and also fix the upper one. Then he always adds, the sooner the better. I think it will make him feel like a new person. Now, we wait to hear from the insurance application. The lady in the doc's office is going to check all that out and call me. She made copies of all the paperwork i had.
There was a knock on my door yesterday, and when i opened it, it was Sue's dotter holding a watermelon, and 2 cantaloupe. I called Sue later and told her i saw an angel,,,lolololol. She had guessed how tired i was and asked her dotter to do that.
I've got to figure out what i'm gonna eat for lunch, so yall tc, and

My son is staying put,,in AC, but likes to have company. So i'm going to visit him in a few minutes. His gf is back at school now. It doesn't actually start until next week, but the teachers have to be there early.
I'm sure glad DD has a sense of humor,,,cause i've been kinda picking on him,,about going on a trip in that huge new home,,ac at that! So DD, you do know i'm just teasing you don't you? lol,,some people you can't. I know you have reasons.

And!!! I have some new followers that i want to thank for being here, and hope i don't bore you too much. One of them is that niece i've been telling you about,,,Sheryl. (SS)
I feel good today,,,and i have no idea why i've felt bad. I think it's just plain ol age...lolololol,,,having a bad day or 2 sometimes... And being so concerned over my son. Next week is our trip to San Antonio to see the doc. He's having major problems with it now.
Last nite on America's Got Talent,,was not good. It had all the ones from youtube. Out of the 12,,,just 2 i liked. Can't imagine picking 4 out of those to go on. Even the judges had a hard time.
A few more days of this heat, and we're actually cooling off. A cold front with rain!!!! lollololol,,,It'll bring it down to the mid 90s,,, but that's 10* down. So,,,i'm just gonna stay in,,wait for it. Well, as much as possible..
Ok,,time for my waffles,,so yall tc, and
Monday, August 13, 2012
I just didn't want to get up today,,,lol. I woke up about 7:30 ,, and made it another 45 minutes. I'm tired,,for some reason,,,guess it's just one of those days. OMG!!!!!!! IT'S MONDAY!!! And worse than usual,,,lolololol.
Still staying in most of the time,,,maybe that's getting to me. No where to go, nothing to do, so,,, what do you do? I've always been an outside person, and with the heat, can't do it now.
We've been put on #3 water rationing. Our river flow is down to 3 here. Not good at all. I don't water,,,except my trees if they look really bad. I think there are people taking out a lot of water up river. It goes from 47, to 30, then to our 3. That's in about the above 60 miles.
http://hydromet.lcra.org/full.aspx We're in the Lake LBJ Basin. At the 3.
I did see a slight chance of showers, 10%, today.
The Olympics are over!!!!!!! Yeaaaaa,,,,now maybe there will be something on TV, at least a few nites a week.

B came by, telling me about their CO trip. The part he liked the best, and i would too, was the train ride thru the mountains. I've seen it on TV, or ads, or something. He also told me he would go to San Antonio with us on the 22nd. Well, he would take his van. I worry about driving that early because i don't wake up good for a couple of hours, and he's an early bird.
Got 3 movies yesterday, 2 more going today. But,,,TV will finally be back to normal after tonite. Almost all the ones i had i have seen before,,, Like the book i'm reading lolololol,,,don't remember the book tho.
DD has some naughty pics today,,,hahahahahaha,,, We have those real skinny brown walking sticks, and the green ones too. But,,i pushed a stump over one time, and there was this huge gray one like he's showing.
Ok,,time to git,,,yall tc, and

I just wanna let yall know, how much i like reading blogs that answer the comments. Makes them more interesting,,,or something. And especially when there are questions,,,they need an answer. MsB told me about Walter today, and THANK YOU! I like seeing the other ones answered too, not just mine. I try not to miss any, but if i do, i apologize. I think we talked about this before, DD and i, that we even go back on other blogs,,,
When i got out about 5+ yesterday, i saw 106. I was thinking WHY did i do this,,but was kinda hungry. I went to another place i hadn't tried and got a club sw,,heard it was really good. Wow,,,and was it ever. Huge, with some kind of fries that had something on them that was sooooo good. That sw was 5 layers of goood stuff. 1/2 was all i could do, so i have another meal of it for today. Here i am hungry and i just ate my waffles,,,hahahahaha,,,that sw was that good.
Jude is still in. Guess that heat kinda got to him too. Gonna have it thru the weekend. When i was out, i went by son's and x's place and the door was open, so i stopped. J was just about out of it. He had gone there for a minute, ended up staying about 3 hours cause people kept buying vehicles,,(3) but he got too hot, and his back had swollen up bad. That's when it locks up and he falls. He shouldn't ever be there alone. His dad was gone. He was sitting there in the office, HOT, and asked me if i would bring him a beer out of his car. I did, and it was hot too. That helps the back too. Anyway, finally got him to turn things off, and we headed for the door and this man came in and they had to talk ,,,,and talk,,,him looking like he was about to fall, me saying you gotta go. Well, i followed him home to be sure he got there, had wanted to drive him, and he was gonna hit the bed with an ice pack. He told me this morning there is a huge black spot there now. AND, he was gonna just stay down today. GOTTA get something done!!! He still doesn't know about his MRI, has an appointment on the 22nd. His doc is gone,, on vacation right now.
That's my latest. Am i missing anything? Any ?s,,,i do answer them,,,lol.

Wasn't gonna do a post today, but,,here it is. I got out earlier, thinking there was a pork steak lunch being done by the 1st Baptist Church, but,,,not til Sunday. Then i went by the only garage sale in town,,,didn't even get out. A couple of small end tables, and clothes!
Ok, that's my day,,,lol, so yall tc, and

I'm not getting out much, with the heat. I was out when the clouds came tho. I stopped by the Hut and got a tuna sw,,just wanted something cold. It was good too. I told her she better be prepared, i was telling everybody about that burger,,,lololol.. Son said he couldn't eat it all either. Here i am with my stroganoff, and eating out. Guess what i'm having for lunch?,,,lol. That's why i hate to cook,, having leftovers i get too tired of.
Got some yearly paperwork yesterday,,,that i just stopped and did later. Got it all done in about an hour,,thru for another year. Wasn't anything on tv, so,,, And later, i put a movie in,,and had seen it,, fast forwarded thru it,,and guess what?,,seen that one too. Watched it anyway. Told you, i can't remember names. Darn Lifetime,,and Hallmark,,get some new ones!!
My ustream petespond,,place has been out for a few days. I really miss it,,love watching all those African animals coming to that pond. I know it will finally be fixed, surely...Saw that on their facebook.

I'm getting tired of no tv shows on. Missing all my regulars. Not sure when the Olympics will be over, but gosh,,enough is enough.
Did i tell you about the hamburger i got yesterday at a new little food trailer? Biggest one i've ever seen! The patty was an inch thick and big too, on a big sesame seed bun. My mouth wouldn't even open enough to take a bite of the whole thing. Had to have a 1/2 lb of meat on it. Got about 1/2 down, still have the other 1/2. It came with chips and watermelon.
Not doing anything,,nothing to say, so yall tc, and

I'm re-reading some of the Clan of the Cave Bear books. It's been so long, i don't remember them and i have #3, 4, and 5. About a year ago,,she published the last one she said. I read it, but, decided to go back and read the older ones again. My SIL had them, so i haven't been to the library in quite a while. I could never use a Kindle,,,like i told my dotter, because i can't ever remember what i've read by name. I put a tiny mark in the library ones,,,(ssshhhh). lol...
I'll be so glad when these )(*&&^$%^) elections are over! I HATE politics. I will read the summaries of each one running, and decide who i want to vote for, just before the elections. That's all i need, don't need all this TV stuff, newspaper stuff, etc. And never talk politics to me,,you will never change my mind, and i refuse to argue about it.
This idiot in Austin tried to vacuum out a hive of bees from under the eaves of his house....lollololol,,,Ended up in the hospital. Had to call a professional to get them. Do any of yall eat Fain's Honey?,,,It's made here, and goes back decades. So if there's a stray hive, they will come and get it. A long time ago, there was a huge oak tree in the park with a hive in it. Not there now and i don't know what happened.
My dad tried that,,,lol..Having a few bee hives. He had the suit, but didn't use it and never got stung. One of his many enterprises,,,lololol.

I've been wanting to call SS (Niece, for BB),, and was so surprised when my phone rang and it was her!.. I had just talked to J,,,thot it was him calling back. They sold the house in Lake Worth, and now are getting into the other one. She was painting in a couple of rooms.. Said she wasn't sure where lots of things were, had moved in fits and starts... Her wrist was hurting, and i think i have carpal tunnel and i DO have to wear a wrist brace sometimes. Anyway, i told her to wear one, will definitely help. You can still use your hand ,,, fingers, just can't bend that wrist part. She said she had one,,somewhere,,,maybe she knew. lololol. Better quit talking about her,,gave her this blog address again...
Some woman here in town called in yesterday, 911, cause she had a snake in her bathroom,,,lol. Said it was long and skinny. Guess they found it, i never heard anything else. Or she moved out,,hahahahaha.
By taking your eyes off it, it would hide, come out later.

Those 3 teens around the fires all the time in Kingsland, were picked up and questioned, and there hasn't been any since. Kinda tells you right there,,doesn't it?
The gate is still up on Salem St, but it HAS to be taken down. The city keeps stalling on telling the owner that. Now the mayor has turned it over to another man to tell him,,lolololol. It will be done,,,Better watch out for us "Troubles",, lolol.
G and I went out to Ns late yesterday and just sat around and visited for a while. He helped her move her dryer out to replace the vent hose thingy. She had to crawl over the washer and get behind it to do it, after it was pulled out. Tight space. But, it got done, and he adjusted the sliding doors too. She never knew they could be done. It's in a mobile home. She had had a couple of watermelon vines come up, and got 2 off them. This last one was yellow, and i ate a little,,soooo good. Her okra is just getting started.
I know how good that home grown stuff is, but it was never worth it to me. And truth be known,,it probably costs more to grow it. You can get good produce in the summer everywhere. I learned the hard way, BUT i sure learned. So yall can have your gardens,,i'll find a road side vendor. lol. After i don't know how many years, i can eat all the tomatoes i want now. Without the tongue ulcers. Need to find some more.

Way back, when the kids were young, we had a COLD front hit on Labor Day weekend. I can remember because it was the last day the swimming pool was open, and the kids just HAD to go,,,,,They were the only ones there and had to stay in the warm water, froze when they got out. lololol. It did keep the temp in the 60s that day. Hard to imagine right now,,huh?
Got that possible hurricane heading West,,which is being watched. Way back when i think it was Carla hit the coast, we even had evacuees here, lots of em. Got some of the wind and rain too. Early 60s? (I go way back,,,lololol). I know how bad they are, but we central Texans sure hope for some relief during the season,,,sorry DD.
I was telling Js g/f about a time when he was gonna get his first pellet gun for Christmas, and he walked up on us paying for it in the store.. That was the worst thing he ever had to do, wait til Christmas, knowing what he was getting! lollolol. He had wanted one so bad, for so long,,and there it was, but,,,,,about a 2 month wait. He never wanted to know again.
How can they be getting all that rain out in AZ? Send it HERE!

Heat's here til the weekend. And i think we still have that African dust too. Just saw on FB where my G/dotter's ac is out. Never fails to do that in the worst of the summer. Not sure if it's fixable or not.,,,Surely it is.
You either watch Olympics or turn the tv off. Mine's off. Just need the quiet sometimes. Fixing to eat some oatmeal, maybe nap a little, and read. Almost thru with my book.

I did get everything done that could be done for the insurance. Now, it's wait. If we find out he has to have surgery soon, i'll call them and see if it can be effective by 9-1. IF HE CAN WAIT THAT LONG!
