Hey Katie! And everyone else! Made it to TX the 15th of Jan. Decided to take 3 days to get here w/ the pup and cold weather. Brrrr.... it was cold in the midwest and doesn't look like it's going to end soon for them.
Got here and the phone was out, isp out, TV out and some plumbing problems. NBD. Got the TV going the 15th, the phone going the 17th, plumbing taken care of the 18th and finally got isp today. All is good!
Hope you all are well! I'll try to keep in touch on a more timely basis! Good catching up!
Glad to hear that you made it safely and in one piece. Sorry that everything was "out," but sounds like you're up and running. After you catch your breath--send some of that warm air up here..it's 5 degrees this morning!!(BRRRR!!)

Hear ya Mikey fan! It's been in the 20's (and teens) here but at least not below ZERO! Cleaned the chimney and stocked wood before we left so that is keeping us toasty. Did have to get the propane guy out to fill the tank for the baby heater, etc. All is good!

Theo so glad you got here safe. Sorry about all the issues. Do you know how all that occured? It has been cool at nights but the days have been nicer than expected. Have a great winter.

Thanks Katie! The phone is pretty simple - we are 1 of the 3 people left on this road that have land lines. Everyone else is cell so it causes problems as the phone co. doesn't check as often. Oh well. My isp was bought out and the peeps I put the order to reinstate service with were so worried they were going to lose their jobs - they "forgot". So - I ended up going w/ another service. The plumbing problems were bound to happen sooner or later - glad we lasted this long. As for the DISH - we have had nothing but trouble w/ them ever since we signed up. Par. It's all working now so nothing to get in a twist about. Am just glad to be here! Good wishes and prayers to all!

Hey Katie! & everyone else. It's 16 degrees here and the wind is howlin'! Suppose to get down to 11 or below. Snow is being threatened in the next couple of days. Feel sorry for the folks in Dallas who are trying to get to the Super Bowl.

We're fine here - have the generator ready to go in case the electric goes, have plenty of wood for the wood stove (hide-a-bed in close proximity - ready to go - plenty of blankets), plenty of propane for the little heaters and filled many water containers in case the well freezes up. Who lives like this anymore?

Glad we aren't in Iowa w/ below zero temps. But, roomie kind of wishes we were there as he could make a bundle on snow removal. Forget about it!

Any weigh ins on the gal in Minn. who tried to send the puppy through the mail? I think she should be fined w/ that money going to help animals and be sentenced to at least 1000 hrs. of volunteering @ animal shelters. JMO

Everybody stay safe and warm w/ this weather. Don't take any chances! No bad news this year! I'll probably regret saying that.

Good thoughts & prayers to all!

Glad to hear that you're safe and sound and somewhat "warmer" in TX than you would be in Iowa!

I hadn't heard the story about the woman "mailing" the poor puppy. Have to agree with you on that. Maybe as punishment, she should be 'mailed' somewhere. How about Egypt??

That works for me. In addition - she should have to carry a card that says she can never own an animal again. And - her volunteer hours should be spent away from the animals cleaning litter boxes and picking up poop!

Google something like "woman in Minnapolis tries to mail puppy..." She's going to get a few charges.

Still cold here but I am surviving!! You all stay warm!

Good hearing from you Phoenix! Have missed you! Know we will catch up soon - think we all have had a bad case of the unruly weather! Our power keeps going in and out. Oh well. Glad you are back!

Have to agree with all above on the weather. Spring needs to come and SOON!! We're supposed to 'hit' 50 on Thurs and fri, but back in the upper 20's for the weekend (when the darn dog wants her walks!!).

Did anyone watch the Bud Shootout?..what did you all think of it? Of course, I was sorry to see Michael go out so soon. It sure is going to take some time getting used to Kahne driving #4.

Hi Katie--

It's in the upper 50's and windy here. Almost all of our snow has melted.
My friend's dad had some surgery for the CA in his lung..am waiting to hear how it went. Needs prayers for a speedy recovery.
Am glad the Daytona is this Sunday..we're supposed to cool down some (temperature wise) on Sunday. I'll stay inside and clean and watch the race.

Everybody have a good weekend--it's almost here!!

Hi Katie--

We're slowly warming up and doing well. LOVED the Daytona! Sorry to see that Trevor didn't do as well last night (Phoenix race).
My friend's dad is holding his own. Had a surgical procedure on his lung on the 15th. My firend went over to his house last weekend, then the ice storm hit and he lost power. He wouldn't leave his home and go to her place (where she still had power) and she couldn't leave him all alone, so she stayed. He had some portable heaters, so they weren't cold. He didn't have any lights, or candles. Just flashlights. So they sat and drank wine in the dark (both had too much, she says). Said it was kind of fun.

How is everyone else?

Good to hear about your friends dad doing well. I guess they are going to have to buy flashlights, candles and more wine! Great bonding time for sure. Race was Ok, would like to see Elliott do better but it is going to take a couple races to adjust.(I hope). Blessings and prayers to all. Too windy to finish my painting today darn it. LOL

Yes, he is doing better. He had surgery to contain the cancer, or slow it down, but did not have it removed. We don't know how much time he has. I was glad to hear that they had some 'fun.', anyway.
I love when it's windy when I'm painting...makes it dry faster. That can be an issue, in the summer, if the humidity is high. Hope you're able to get it finished soon.
