Soo,,now i call the bank and they ask if they can call me back in a minute,,i say yes. HA!!! My minute and their minutes just don't mean the same.... I finally call back and am told,,o, we were just fixing to call you,,,yeah sure. Then they tell me there will be a 30.00 charge for canceling this draft just one time. I tell them NO WAY.
So,,back i go to Verizon,,and in the holding,,again,,,time,,i look on my online account and see where it says de-enroll,,,,hmmmmm. I finally get a person again,,who keeps leaving me to ask my questions to someone else,,,so i start clicking this online choices... Maybe,,,just maybe i've done it. Gotten out of that draft coming up in mid Dec. Someone back there somewhere did tell me they would send me a paper bill, which i will NOT pay that amount, but pay what i actually owe. Let them use my credit THEY gave me to correct it. O boy. The tech that i called first,,said,,,he felt for me, cause they had messed his own personal account up, and it took ages to correct,,,lolololol.
Yall tc, don't mess with Verizon,,,and

lol Just set my waffles on the table and J called, asking if i wanted the B/taco. I'm back on my waffles for a while,,,the taco is good sometimes tho.
Hey BB, i'm so surprised you haven't made any comments on RVSue, about the slabs.... lollololol. Do you miss going there? O yeah,,,you're catching those big bass, lolol, chasing golf balls, riding that billy bike,,,etc..having so much more fun,,,
Sometimes,,my head feels so strange, funny, like woozy. It was doing that yesterday and i checked my b/sugar, b/pressure,,all ok. Just don't know what it is, but it goes away. Brought it up cause it just had a touch happen again.
J is doing so good, and it's been almost a month now. Not having the spasms as much. It's amazing, when you think about it,,how fast he's healing. He's just about quit wearing that brace that doesn't fit right, rubs on the spine where it shouldn't. The doc even said,,don't wear it... On about the same surgery back in 2000, that doc didn't believe in them,,told him he had him screwed together enough he didn't need one,,, (those were the ones taken out). He is also 1 3/4" taller,,,
We went out to the park yesterday,,he finally has seen the attraction i have for it,,,and watched all the different birds. The geese, some big black ducks, sea gulls, a lot of white cranes, and one blue one. He loves it too,,now. Have to give my Mom credit for my love of nature and all it's creatures. When i was a kid ,,, was fascinated with red ants, and bees.
Well, i'm just rattling on here, so yall tc, and
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Haven't seen J since last Wed, but he called and is bringing a breakfast taco. Sounded good today. Mine are egg, bacon, potato, and cheese...His are made with chicken, onion, green pepper, cilantro, and are really good too, and filled so much he takes over half off and makes another one.
I got my Christmas shopping done over the weekend,,,lol,,,,Ordered them. Got the three i buy for, the same thing. An Admiral FitzRoy's storm glass. Got this little catalog, called Bits and Pieces, and it has some of the neatest things in it. A long time ago, i gave J this clock,,,had ball bearings that would roll down a chute each minute, then every hour, they would all fall and start over...,.,hahahahaha,,,Didn't take him long to move that thing out of his room,,,lolololol. Never knew what happened to it,,just another thing that disappeared over the years. WELL,,,for the first time since then,,there is one in this little catalog!!! Gonna show him,,,when he gets here. NOT gonna buy another one....
No plans for today, well, i will finish my book, don't have much and hated to put it down last nite. I read during commercials,,lol.
Yall tc, and
Sunday, November 25, 2012
Got the vcr set to record 2 movies, takes 1 each nite on weekends, so i'm ahead. Got a good book to read,,,,got more little catalogs to go thru. Kinda know what i'm buying for mine tho. Will take a trip to Walmart.
If you don't see me, don't worry, just nothing to put on here. My life is so boring right now.

Saturday, November 24, 2012
Late yesterday my stomach started feeling yuck,,,then,,the diarrhea hit. Have no idea where that came from. I didn't eat supper, and then later i ate some peanut butter crackers. It's ok today. N told me that G wasn't feeling good either and had gone to bed yesterday,,,now, for him, that is unusual.
Ok gonna eat my oatmeal now,,so yall tc, and
Friday, November 23, 2012
Came home and napped,,,lololol,,,went back later for poker. The sheriff showed up to play too. His stepson is married to my niece, and he nearly always comes over to play poker. Her 3 kids have been like his own grandkids always. I won a little,,,lol. We just play nickel, dime, quarter. Just for fun. When we play moon, we used to play quarter loss, quarter hickey. One day, bro B said,,let's do dollar, dollar,,and we all said OK,,,hahahahaha,,he didn't think anybody would agree. Heck, used to play at the bar and they always said i won all their money,,, But when i went in the door, they would holler,,,come on!!! Need a player...
One time there was a new man playing at a table with 2 others, and i went over there and asked if i could join them,,2 said Yeahhh. The new one frowned, scowled,,didn't like it...Til i set some moon bids,,Later he slid to a stop one day, just to tell my sis,,I could sure play moon! He didn't know we ALL had all our life,,,hahahahaha. I didn't like to play with women either,,,hehehehe,,,they almost always had their minds on other things,,wouldn't stay with the game.
Don't know what's going on, but the net is so slow today, taking forever to do anything. And it's not my signal!
Hope you all had a great day, yesterday,,,tc and
Thursday, November 22, 2012
I'm making my 2 waffles even tho we eat at noon.
I think this parade is just no good any more. It's all balloons! Guess no one does floats any more. So i turned it off....
J had a terrible muscle spasm yesterday when he woke up from a nap, what he calls lock up. There didn't seem to be anything we could do. He had missed his meds by an hour. Slept thru it. He just had to let them wear off. Might be 2 months of this, before those muscles and ligaments heal.
He was headed home later to make his famous pecan pies... Said he's spent about 20.00 on pecans for 2, and could have bought them for 4.99 each.
Well, too early for any news around here, but i do have LOTS to be thankful for. So yall tc, and
Wednesday, November 21, 2012
When you need laundry done,,,you wear whatever works,,,lolololol. I think he might want to stay this way,,,already told him I will NOT be seen in public with him like this. He went out to his car, even with me saying NOOOO,,,I got neighbors!!!
The guy that’s gonna put me in a new kitchen faucet, called and is ready. So maybe today I can get it.
The weather is gonna stay great at least thru tomorrow,,,will cool off a little starting Friday.
Anyway, yall all have a great Thanksgiving, and tc,,,
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
You know, i just dread holidays now. I'm expected to take something for dinner,,,like everybody else, but,,,this year, i just don't know what. Can't be on my feet much, so it has to be something quick and easy. Maybe my 3 bean salad. Maybe HJs firecrackers (everybody loves em). Maybe just pick up some potato salad at the store...We all go to bro Gs house, and it's small and really crowded. Little kids drive me nuts. See what i mean? The weather is going to be beautiful, so maybe the kids will stay outside mostly.
J is driving against everybody's better judgement. At least he got into an automatic yesterday. O gosh, think i said this yesterday,,,, never mind...
I've GOT to get some Christmas shopping done... never been this late! Normally, it's all done by now. I'm not doing much, just for immediate family. I shop online so i have a big stack of these little catalogs laying here.
Gosh, just seems i have nothing to put here, any more. Yall tc, and
Monday, November 19, 2012
It was J calling, saying he was picking up some breakfast tacos. I was just fixing to do my waffles, so i'm waiting.,,,Starving,,,lololol.
He's driving against all my warnings, but did say he was gonna get into an automatic, the standard was killing him. They, he and his dad, have a used car lot. Lots of choices...lol. He loves that Kia, cause of the 47MPH. OOOO,,,,on the trip to SA, i got 28.3!!!! In my Taurus. Never got that before. I drove around 65 mph, using cruise control...have to do that, my foot gets too heavy.
I just can't believe that F1 race wasn't on tv yesterday!! Well, not on my cable.
Looking at the week's weather report,,,upper 70s!,,,lol,,,love this.
That's all folks,,,tc and
Sunday, November 18, 2012
Those F1 races on that new track have been going strong. Unreal. And it's just down the road,,,lol. Here that means about 75 miles away. Austin has been having stuff going on all weekend. For being the 1st time, it has gone soooo good. Read somewhere, that having that kind of race in Austin, was like having ??? in Mayberry,,,,lololol. I don't know how they got it all done in time.
Don't know why Sundays are so long and boring. I even did some mopping,,,lololol.

Saturday, November 17, 2012
I was amazed that one of my readers, Goldie, was in SA too. That was probably my last trip. His check ups will be in F'burg.
Actually, i don't have much to write about. I have finally adjusted to the time change, i think,,,lol. Not losing that hour now.
Had a man show up yesterday to fix my slow ISP. lololol. Had to call him later and tell him it was still doing the same thing, after he had spent so much time on it. I know what happened. Since my connection fluctuates on the speed, when he tested it, he was catching it on the top end. There is this thingy that shows bars and when they're all white, i'm GOOD. But, when green ones start showing i'm getting slow. Right now, i have 1 green and it can go to 3, then all go back to the white again. He moved my modem, changed out a line to it, and when he checked, it showed good on his machine...Hated to call him later. I kinda think it's the modem.
That's all i've got, so yall tc, and
Thursday, November 15, 2012
He's shaving, and says he's gonna lie down for a bit...There are pillows in the car, back seat, so he can if he wants. We need to make a stop at Walmart later to get more of the bandages that work so good under the brace,,,no one has em here. They are more padded and with the holes left from those 23 staples, he'll need that. Also need some more of that saline wash.
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
PS Forgot to mention,,J and i saw a whooping crane flying over the Llano River bridge right here in town, about 5 PM yesterday,,,It was following the river, and i had just read about them in an article in the Statesman, and asked to let him know if any one saw one. I emailed him and told him. (Mike Leggett)

My internet is slow, and has been doing this a couple of weeks. I can reset the router and make it ok, but,,,guess i'm gonna have to call, much as i hate that thot. Where the lines show it,,it's just one line off, but, that makes it slow.
J told me a couple of weeks ago that he wanted some pecans and did i know where he could get any. I had seen signs but didn't remember where. WELL!! Just across the road and down about a block from him,,,there is a big sign,,PECANS....hahahahaha,,,It's just before the city park, and i remember when that pecan orchard was planted there. And yep, they had shelled pecans. We went by and i whipped back around and he got a pound. $8. He's gonna make pies, and said he had won the award for pies, 4 years in a row...He makes those little, what? 4" ones? Little ones anyway. I think our squirrel population had doubled in the park this year,, so much for them to eat.
I just read Gypsy's blog today, and i had totally missed it about her being in the hospital. Glad she is home now. That pneumonia is a BAD thing to have. I was never the same after my bad bout of it, almost 5 years ago, but one thing good, was, i never had another cigarette.
Hey just got dark, maybe we will get a little rain. And that south wind just went still, think that front is right at my front door. lol. Don't know if it will hit like a blast or kinda sneak in...
There was a new food trailer set up last week end and i was giving my signal for Sonic, and went by it, saw the sign, pulled pork,,and just went right on thru that Sonic drive way, back to the pulled pork,,,,Gosh, love that stuff. And of course i want slaw on it! WELL, got my appetite back up for another one, went back and it's GONE! Well, it was back yesterday, so about 5;30 here i went again,,,mouth watering, and $%*%*&*_)&^(*%&,,,,,it was closed!!! This is before dark, when the hunters would have been in hunting food. So now, i'm lost. Heck, maybe he ran out early or something,,,
Just had my waffles and here i'm thinking about that pulled pork bun! Think i'm gonna go check it out... so yall tc, and

Windy, kinda hot today. When it gets this way i'm always glad for a good front to show up, like will be here Sunday nite. We finally got down low enough for some leaves to start falling. And it will finish them about on Mon. nite.
We've been going out to the park, and J has discovered how enjoyable those geese are. He has lived here all his life, and had never done that. He had even told me that that bread wasn't good for them,,now it's,, Mom, do you have anything to feed the geese? lololol. It's just peaceful out there and the other birds are showing back up. Big ducks,little ducks,,white cranes, blue cranes,,,etc.
My neighbor did move out last week. A big truck even showed up a few days ago and loaded his storage room on and took it away. This morning, someone was walking around taking pics and J asked them what they were doing. It was someone from his mortgage company. We just told them they had left about 2 weeks ago, that's all.
I got this huge flower arrangement this morning. My birthday is tomorrow, which i keep forgetting. Now i can remember while i'm smelling these. Something smells good.
Hey, yall tc, and
Thursday, November 8, 2012
Js doing great! I take him back next week on Thurs to get the staples out. Have to go to SA to do it,,the doc just goes to F'burg every other week, and the timing was off.
The brace is rubbing on the top of the surgical opening, and was making it red, so he's not wearing it when he's in the house. Looking lots better today. After the back surgery in 2000, his doc told him NOT to wear one, didn't need it, he had screwed him together enough was no way it would come apart.
Well, my bro G showed up, so i'm just gonna close this now, yall tc, and

Tuesday, November 6, 2012
The top ones came out back in 2000, during another back spine surgery. The bottom ones were taken out on this one, but twice as much put back in,,2 fusions. I couldn’t believe the size!! How could anyone have these in their back? Lots do,,, tho.
Not much,,but it’s late now, and I’m really tired, so,,,GN, and
Monday, November 5, 2012
Just flat missed doing a blog yesterday,,,without even realizing it. Gotta get back in the habit.
Js here with me today,,been 5 days now. He's doing just fine, pushing it like he always does. He won't listen to me,,,lol
Saturday, November 3, 2012
There was a 64 year old lady next door, had the same exact thing done. I had talked to her husband when he was waiting on her to get back from the surgery. Her second one. Hope J visited with her.
I was supposed to go out to Ns house for a get-together for her birthday and her dotter's, but,,,just too darned tired. Took the gifts to B to take with him,,hopefully he remembers,,,lolololol.
WOW!!! It's raining....Love it. This is ahead of a front that's gonna cool us down a little. Gosh, i'm ready. Slept with the ac on last nite. When i got home Thursday, my yard had been mowed,,,couldn't figure that out. Then this morning my mower man came by and yep, he had done it. Still hoping it's the last one for the year....lol, but i remember mowing in Feb. and fussing about that...
Getting a good little shower.
Yall tc, and
Friday, November 2, 2012
Talked to J about an hour and a half ago, he still hasn't seen the doc, and was in a terrible mood wanting some pain med. Was gonna get up and walk, so not to lay there hurting, he said. I DON'T WANT HIM HOME LIKE THIS,,,,, A nurse had told him they might have to keep him tonight. I went over to his house and made his bed up, so it's ready. It's a hospital bed his dad got him a long time ago after one of the other back surgeries. That key he gave me came in handy,, lol. It's to his Dad's house too.
I just kinda piddled around on my way back yesterday. I stopped once to fill up the car, and once for a milk shake. Then, just 15 miles down the road i passed a good looking mexican food restaurant, turned right around and went back. Got a plate of cheese enchiladas with the fixings, ate a little and brought the rest home. Got it for later today. Gonna make some oatmeal for lunch, here in a bit.
Monday nite, out at the lake area, was hearing about a man going around his house with guns in his hands, having a flash back. His mom was on the phone with 911, trying to calm him down, but she would, then he would turn right back around uncontrollable again. It went on for about 2 hours and i went to bed. The DPS had shown up. Well, they ended up shooting and killing him. Told him to drop his weapons,,and he raised them to fire. I just read his obit today, and the family was asking for a change on how these situations are handled here in TX. He was a 20 year vet, and had an impressive career and life. This is wrong!!! I totally agree with the family.
I am so glad to be home,,,that was my last trip staying away like that. No rest, total exhaustion. Just can't do that now. Got a good nite's sleep last nite, feel better, but gonna spend the next few days doing nothing.
