I think I have it now. Oldest daughter's son is the one in college too, right?

Any plans for today?

Yesterday I cleaned out the garage. The trash man is going to freak out once he sees all the crap I have for him at the curb.

These are DIL's kids. Both play football, both usually play baseball. The 13 year-old didn't play baseball this summer because, when the season first started, he was having some issues with asthma.
Here's the breakdown:
Oldest daughter's son, referred to as my 16 year old GS, plays baseball.(also played football until last season when he decided to play fall baseball).
Younger daughter's daughter, referred to as younger GD, plays softball (They were at state last week).
Youngest son's and DIL's kids, referred to as youngest GSs, play both football and baseball (only the youngest had to sit out this season because of asthma issues).
All my grands are very athletic with the exception of oldest GD, Landyn's mom. She played t-ball and coach pitch when she was little. It was hilarious. She would watch the ball cross home plate, then, and only then, she would very slowly, very gracefully swing the bat.(Then run like hell for second base)

No. Oldest daughter's oldest son is Nevaeh's daddy. There is a 12 year difference in his and his younger brother's ages.

Younger daughter has son in KU (her younger son) and her oldest son is in community college.

What a day I have had!! I went out and worked on the east fence, where the neighbor's Honeysuckle is trying to take over my flower bed and many little scrubb trees are growing from her yard to my yard. I worked until my hands wouldn't hold on to the loppers any more, got it all hauled to the road for bulk pickup, came in and took a bath and scrubbed for Poison Ivy. Then I was ready to go back to bed!
I went out to feed the fish and the dogs got out. I drove all over the extended neighborhood and couldn't find them. I had asked everyone who was out walking, watering their lawns, etc., and no one had seen them.
When I went past the high school, there were two police cars parked together. I stopped to tell the policemen that, if someone called in two loose dogs, they were mine. One of the officers said, "I just heard it on the radio--animal control is picking up two dogs right now." He took my name, address and phone number and said they would call me.
I got home and the little chits were standing by the patio door. Marley had obviously gone for a swim in the pond because she was soaked and there was a wet line from my pond to the patio door.
I washed her with the hose and put them both in their pen.

Good Morning.
Murph that's good news you found the dogs ( or rather they found you). Did they ever go swimming in the pond before?
Have you been getting any thunderstorms there? Seems lately every day here we've been getting a quick storm.<quoted text>
Good morning, Liz and Allbodies. I hope you have a lovely day.

Liz, the dogs have never gone for a swim in my little pond before but every time they get loose, Little Marley manages to find a water puddle somewhere and get in it. Then, when I bathe her, she shivers and whimpers and acts like she's scared to death of water. Murphy, even though she looks like there is a lot of Black Lab in her, is afraid of water.

We haven't had any rain here until a few sprinkles last night.

Marley is getting rain Every night. She is doing fine and is getting her mom's house ready to go on the market.

Good. I'm glad Marley is doing well. Going thru a house and getting it ready to sell can be a daunting task. I think I told you when my sister and I were making all the trips to PA to get her Mother-in-law's house ready to sell. That woman saved everything under the sun. She would buy new furniture and instead of getting rid of the old stiff she's just add more to the room. I swear there were 10 chairs in her living room.
She was in her 90's and still had her report cards from grammar school. One of our best finds were old pieces of soap from hotels that she would put back in the wrappers. Who the heck takes home old soap?

I'm sooooo effing excited , I gathered five eggs I knew something was going on like labor with no drugs at all, I hope they get used to this laying eggs thing because I just want to give the poor thing an epidural, even though they weren't invented when I had my kids. I am now the proud owner of my little soulmate Sam, seven chickens, three rabbits and two bearded dragons. Thit I forgot abt the TtHREE aquariums. I think iI would be perfectly described as a pushover, animal lover and when Sam stares at me he reads my soul, lol . Which ain't a bad thing, he knows when I need some special loving. God knew EXACTLY what he was doing! God bless you , whatever his name is to you, may all his/her (you liked that, huh?) whatever makes you who you are. You're all awesome to me, when I lost everything, y'all were there and I will forever be grateful. Love and best wishes!!!!!

Hey! I am happy that you are getting eggs now. That is great.
How is your garden doing?
I know what you mean about Sam. My Murphy knows when I need special loving, too. She is my angel and I thank God for her every day.

The RA is giving me a real fight. I used to do all kinds of indoor and outdoor stuff--putting down trees, digging flower beds, on and on and on. I thought I was tough. I didn't know one thing about tough. Now, I know. I get out of bed every morning and That is tough.
Love to you, my friend.

PS I wonder if Liz's grandchickens will start laying eggs.

Good morning, Allbodies. I wish you a happy Saturday.

Liz--Landyn wasn't with us. I was with the friend who helps me. She was pressuring me to put the photo on Facebook. Older daughter said, "Think of all the flak the poor guy would take at work, for having an old lady riding with him."
I told her, "Naw. They would all be telling him, "It's about time you traded up!"

Sorry I've been missing in action, the hens lay abt every 24-30 hours. They seem to lay around mid morning. My granddaughter names each egg and I asked her how she could identify them after she cracks them in the skillet, she said it really doesn't matter after that. She went with her dad to the zoo this morning and called me and begged me not to check the hen house. She got home, found two, was jumping on the trampoline and heard one of the chickens raising holy hell. She yelled out, I know what that means, she leaped about ten feet and actually pulled an egg that was halfway laid right out of that chickens butt! I thought I would die laughing, she named him Homer???? I think my GD should be a vet or maybe an obstetrician. I know one thing, nothing grosses her out!

Btw, I got into a huge argument with my dumbass neighbor that I would never see an egg without a rooster, I tried to play biology teacher but it went right over his head. I brought him six eggs yesterday!!! The look on his face was priceless!

Hi everyone, how r u all doing? I got home from the beach 2 days ago. We had so much fun but the weather could of been a little better. Avg temp was 85 and it was a lil windy on the beach and the ocean was so cold. I think from now on we will go back to vacationing at Myrtle Beach even tho the drive sucks. When i walked in the door my dog was so happy he actually was whining and licking my face at the same time,lol. Im happy to be home now and am gonna spend plenty of time with him.

Hope everyones having a good weekend!

What beach did you go to? My kids and I usually go to the Jersey Shore but have been to several other beaches along the East Coast. Love Myrtle beach but hate the drive.

Had to laugh about your daughter. my daughter was the same way as a teenager. Then she came home from college and pretty much was refusing to move out. A couple years later she got engaged and bought a house a few months before she got married. She owned the house and still refused to move out. Then she comes back from her honeymoon and I thought for sure she would move out then. Nope. She and her husband both moved in for a couple weeks. I thought I might have to resort to serving her with eviction papers!!!!!!!!!!

Queen I love your posts. LOL@GD pulling the egg out of the chicken's butt.

My daughter gave me a bio lesson on the chickens too. Now she has a rooster. From what I remember ( and I probably have this screwed up) The chickens have a egg every day. The only way they can have a baby chick is if they have sex and sit in the egg. If they don't sit on it, it's just a regular egg?

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope your day is good.

I couldn't let the day pass without special mention of our Cindy, who went to Heaven three years ago today.

Cindy was a very special lady. She was a hard working woman who loved to laugh and loved to relax with friends watching NASCAR. She was also a sweet, funny, caring poster.

You are missed, Cindy.

Here ya go,my friend:

Yellow cake mix 11 ounce mandarin oranges
4 eggs
1/4 c veg oil
1 16 oz whipped topping
1 15oz can crushed pineapple, drained (save)
1 3.5 oz box instant vanilla pudding
Mix cake mix, eggs, oil pour into3 greased, floured pans
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes

Mix whipped topping, drained pineapple and instant pudding mix.

Here's where I differ from the recipe--I use the pineapple juice and pudding mix to make pudding, then blend it into thewhipped topping. Keep refrigerated

You know what, Sweetie? I miss All of you. I miss US, the way we used to be. Riding out on ol' Clyde to search for his dream girl, Prudence. Taking those wild bus trips.--I never did find my teef and think you still have them.
