My thoughts and prayers go out to ALL the victims of bad weather this Spring. Why is the USA getting hammered so badly this year?? I don't believe in "curses," but it sure looks like parts of this country are living under one lately.

Hey Katie! Thanks for the shout out! Hi! and good thoughts to all of you. Sorry I haven't been on in a while. Things have been a little crazy here. Hope you all are having a great summer! I'm in Iowa - a good 2 hrs. away from the massive flooding. Have several friends who had to move their stuff and leave their homes until further notice. They are all safe and luckily had places to go for the duration.
Other than that I'm plugging along w/ work, taking care of my Mom and the precious pup - Lou Lou. She got an ear infection last week so that has been keeping me busy. We have a "date" w/ the groomer tomorrow and she will feel a lot better once she gets her "summer" cut. Then we will have to get back on track w/ daily walks. She has just been too tired w/ the medication and all the rain!
Have also been trying to keep up w/ NASCAR but other "stuff" keeps getting in the way. Hope everyone is doing well!

I had some back surgery and am recovering nicely from it. Hot and dry down in SW TX. Kids and hubby good. Garden growing and dogs behaving. Start of a long hot summer.

Yes, I've stopped by tonight. Thans Katie for sending me the link to this forum after we had to get a new hard drive. Been busy at work. Just went to a luncheon with the family of a chilhood friend yesterday. Her father passed away a week ago Sunday (the 31st). Funeral was private--family only, then a luncheon at nearby country club afterwards. No obit in the paper either...can't figure it out, but something is amiss with whole situation. My friend said her dad had Parkinson's a good 6-7 years before passing away and that he was rather mean to the kids (their mother passed away 19 yrs ago). I had always considered them to be the "perfect family." Guess they hid their secrets well. Bums me out though, if I'm right.

How is everyone else on here?? Katie--how's the back? Sassy--how's the knee? Phoenix and Theo--what's new?

Hi all. Back is healing, still lots of spasms. Sorry to hear about your friends dad, you never know what goes on behind closed doors.
MOving from Alpine to Longview, TX. Maybe out of pocket for a while starting in a couple weeks. Blessings to all who need them.

Hey all! Katie - hope your spasms are straightening out. Those are not fun. Good luck w/ your move to Longview. Don't wear yourself out over it - especially w/ the hot weather down there.

Sassy - hope the knee is in good shape!

Mikey fan - sorry about your friends' dad and family. That must have been hard on you. I know from where I speak. After my Dad passed (some 15 yrs. ago) my family was living "behind closed doors". Out in public everyone was "cordial" but behind closed doors - what a mess. There was a time period of 2 yrs. that I didn't speak to my sibling and rarely spoke to my Mom.

The past 2 yrs. have been a nightmare w/ the sibling - constant phone calls w/ all her woes and then the click. And, her wanting me to be the "go between" w/ her and Mom.

I'm not one to "air my dirty laundry" in public so I don't say a lot when people ask. It's all good (right). Between last Christmas (@ my Mom's) when she popped off @ me & my roomie and abused my dog (plus the disparaging remarks she made about my Dad - give the dead guy a break) I didn't speak to her for 6 months. Thought I had at least 6 months before the next hang up. Not so fast. She pulled the big one on me last week complete w/ "I can't believe how f****** stupid you are and how f******* dumb you are in business - click!

At least I finally found out! Didn't know! I told my Mom that she was actually getting the good end of the deal - 2 b.day's this yr., 2 Turkey Days and 2 Christmas'.

Other than all that - things are pretty good! Will try to stay in better touch!

Hey Katie! And everyone else! How did your move go? Hope it wasn't too taxing on you. Nothing new in my camp. Just half paying attention to the NASCAR race, doing home chores (laundry, dishes, etc.), and (hopefully) will tackle my couch (full of crap accumulated over the summer). Then over to Mom's to put away lawn furniture and other stuff.

Suppose to have another cold/snowy winter here so am getting this house buttoned up, Mom's house winterized and the like. Can't wait to get to TX! Know it has been hot and dry down there.

Hope everyone is doing okay! Stay in touch!

Theo! I have been wondering about you. MOve went well and have most of the stuff we need put out, Hot and dry for sure. How is your mom doing? I hope she is doing well. Almost time for our Texas race in a few weeks. Cannot wait. Only 2 1/2 hours from the track now. Good to hear from you too.

Well Hello my friends. Been a while since I stopped by. Wanted to let yall know I am coming along pretty well with my knee. Did really goos the first 6 weeks after and then hit a road block but seems to be doing better now. Lil guy just turnt 4 in November hard to believe. Growing so fast as some of you have seen from all his pictures on facebook. lol Mom is down again with pain in her right side..... they have finally found out what it is and she see Dr next week. Its a Renal Cyst. Hoping and praying its non cancerous. Dont know how I would handle that. Hard to believe that in a lil over a month my dad will be gone 2 years already. Time does go fast.

Want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas if I dont talk to you before then and a safe and Happy New Year. Sending out hugs and thinking of you all.

Hey Mikey Fan! I have wanted to post on this thread but life/circumstance got the better of me. All got crazy but is finally settling down! What a whirlwind the past couple of years!
Does anyone follow NASCAR any more? I still enjoy the races - when I can watch! I like some of the new guys and still enjoy some of the older cry babies.
My precious pup is still w/ me and I must get her to bed!
Hope to hear more from some of our other friends! Would be good to catch up!
