Cardio Rehab

So...it went well, and showed me that I'm not as out of shape as I thought I was.  Well, I'm still out of shape, that's a given, but I feel more hopeful that it won't take me forever to get to the way I want to be.

If I had insurance, I'd continue with the program.  As it stands now, I will continue with my work outs at home, on the elliptical machine downstairs, and taking my dogs for walks.  Eating right, and continuing to do the things I am doing health wise.

Going up to the Pro Shop tomorrow for a little bit, need to water plants, and probably clean the men's room a bit, hang with my "golf boys" since it's supposed to be rainy, then off to have a haircut.  Gonna change up my style a little bit.  It's time.

Sweetheart got me a few new pairs of cool jammie pants, and I found some Hane's V-neck t-shirts on sale yesterday...got a few to match my new jams, and 3 white, because you just can't go wrong with a white t-shirt, right?


We took Maria and Mario to A Fine Tooth Comb (Dammit Janet's groom shop) in Adrian, MO yesterday.  They were SO overdue!   She got a ton of undercoat off of Maria, and all that can really be done with Mario is to soften him up and give him a little terrier trim.  Won't take long for his hair to become bristly again, it's just the nature of the beast.  If you're a local reading this and need a good groomer, this girl will not disappoint.  She's been grooming for over 20 years, and has talent and wisdom when it comes to handling your little fur babies.  My pooches love her!  

Had to purchase a new grooming tool for Sweetheart today.  I have been cutting his hair for almost 17 years now, and this is only the 3rd shaver we've had to buy in all that time.  

Yeah, I guess I better close for now...I am kinda feeling my workout, and that's a good thing.  I know I'll sleep well tonight, and be ready for an up and early morning tomorrow.  

Hope y'all are well!  Play Nice!  xxoo

Doctor Visits

As I said on my facebook page, today has been a darn good day.

The follow up visit with my new cardiologist went very well, EKG is good and no damage to my heart.  The incision on my wrist should be completely healed in about 8 weeks.  He was all smiling and happy to see me, and I was happy just to get the news!

Sweetheart and I were elated all the way home.  Stopped at Walmart, and I walked instead of rode the cart.  We went slower than normal, ran into 3 friends and actually enjoyed visiting with them.  (Yes, we did stand in the aisle, but out of the way, and the store wasn't all that crowded.)

My second appt. was a follow up with my regular Nurse Practitioner, who was also very encouraging about the progress I have already made.  Changing my thyroid medication, again, still tweaking it to get it just right.

I am released to drive, I can take my pooches for a walk (when it warms up again), and start my Cardio Rehab on Wednesday.

I feel like I've gotten a new beginning.  A happier, healthier new start.

Physically I know I have some catching up to do, mentally I am just overjoyed that I am going to be ok for real, that I can really get back out there and live a good life without a bunch of restrictions.  Watching my sodium and getting up off my butt more...which will be really easy in about 2 months when my girls get home!

There's more to this healing, there's more to my story.  A pretty dark chapter is over, time to live the life I've been blessed with.

Play Nice!  xxoo

Cooking!

I am making a healthy meal in my crock pot this morning.  Found this recipe, adding a little cauliflower and zucchini chunks.  Feeling optimistic on how it will turn out.

Still have a bit of groin ache today, but not as sharp as yesterday.  Bearing through it.  Making progress every day.  Sweetheart said I looked better yesterday.  I've been taking a picture every day after my shower, just for myself.  Want to record my progress.

Sweetheart has headed to the golf course, rain is in the forecast, but there should be enough for cards if the rains do interrupt their golf game.  I miss the guys, but not ready to get out in the world yet.

Gotta go to 2 doctor appts. on Monday.  One to a cardiac doc in Lee's Summit, one to my primary care physician in Archie.  Start Cardiac Rehab at the hospital here in town on Wednesday.

I can feel myself getting stronger every day...small progresses, but sure.

Snacked on some delicious black grapes yesterday, and had some cucumber chunks with just a bit of Ranch dressing last night.  

I'd like to say I'm looking forward to getting back to "normal," but since this "incident" my "normal" will be anything but.  Not getting back to normal, becoming who I am supposed to be is what's next on my agenda.  I have to say, I was given plenty of chances to change but was defiantly resistant.   I am taking this "thump on the head" seriously.  I'm anxious to see what the next phase of my life will be, with me being happy with myself, healthy and free from a bunch of self afflicted addictions that have plagued me for so long.

None of the golfers showed up at the golf course today.  No calls, either.  Seems rude to me.  Sweetheart is home, helping me with laundry and stuff.  I feel bad for him, but he's ok.

Just did the shredding of the chicken and added the rest of the ingredients.  Gonna let it cook a bit longer on low...I took a little taste, it was darn good.

It is so weird to not be working on any projects with my hands.  Not even coloring.  The incision on my right wrist is healing, but still pretty sore, and repetitive movement will just aggravate it, and me.

Had a small bowl of  my crock pot concoction, and it was deluxe.  I hope Sweetheart and Young Son will give it a try,

Gonna hit the feathers in a bit.

Different

I have this smell in my nose and in my mouth.  It's horrible.  It makes my food taste gross, it makes me feel gross.  I can barely stand to have Maria lay with me on the bed, but I can tell she can smell it, too, and she doesn't get up and leave, so I deal with it.

Emotional...I saw a pic of a pit bull looking at a picture of her humans that were gone, and I can't stop crying.

I know in a couple weeks I'll feel better, my wrist will be healed, and my bruises will be healed, but until that happens, I'm just feeling alone and tired and scared.

Friday

I slept most of the night, my dreams were weird.  They were like reruns of dreams that I remember having before, but with slightly different endings than before.  So strange and a bit unsettling.

Up at 8 am, my wrist is sore and my artery in my groin is sore.  Sweetheart is going to golf at 10.  Had a shower, my morning pills...

Seems like the smell that was antagonizing me yesterday has gone.  I read yesterday that it was from anesthesia, and it would last as long as it took my liver to do whatever it does to clean those chemicals out of me...which knowing how I've mistreated my liver, I figured it would take a few days.  Maybe my liver wasn't as bad off as I thought.  I do have the Good Lord on my side, though.

The bruises on the south side of my body are turning from a dark/splotchy purple, to having a greenish tinge, taking that as a sign of healing.

So far I'm not as weepy, or forlorn feeling today.  I cleaned my desk yesterday, got all the Critter debris in the sewing room, and organized all the new patterns I had collected.

My energies are centered on my health, not so much creativity right now.  My Etsy shop is still up, I just won't be working on it much for a little bit.

Just relaxing and not worrying today.

Wednesday, Thoughts from Yesterday, and Today

I'm awake at 4:00 this morning because of the pain, shortness or breath, and just plain old frustration.

I took my last prescribed dose of oxycodone 5mg yesterday at 2:30 pm.  Apparently there is no refill for this.  Ever.  My next closest relief is Extra Strength Tylenol, but not with the oxycodone, so I felt there should be an amt. of time between last dose of oxy and tyl.  I waited until this morning about 6:30 am to take the tyl.

I have never been one to abuse prescription drugs, but I could tell an actual change in the physcian's nurse's voice when I asked for a refill.  To my untrained ear, 5mg does not seem like a large dose, capable of helping someone suspected of being an addict reach any kind of "high."  All I knew is that it worked quickly to change my pain levels.  Maybe someone with medical training can enlighten me.
I also don't see how an Over The Counter pain relief pill could possibly treat this type of pain.  This pain is a deep pain, not one associated with arthritis or a headache type pain.  And I completely find being treated as an addict without that being proven or established, an affront to my care.  If this small dosage could lead to an addiction, why is it being prescribed in the first place?

So, here's this nice pain medication that you can be given in the hospital and for a few days after you've gone home, but if you ask for more you will be considered an addict. and you must do without this same level of pain coverage, and yeah, we're sorry that it will lead to a slow down in your healing.  Tough.

This is how I feel, and I totally believe a lack of healing sleep is slowing my healing process;

Started yesterday, I have been feeling short of breath, along with heart poundings.  I am told these are "normal."  Probably won't be going anywhere out of the house today, as much as I would enjoy being "motored" around the grocery store, the cold temps outside and my shortness of breath don't seem to be something that would go hand in hand right now.

Talking to my daughter in Germany this morning, she wanted to get involved with this pain med problem.  In looking at the prescription bottle, it is noted on the label "Fed. Law Prohibits Refill"

What?

Why in the world does Federal Law have the right to have a say in what my doctor thinks would be the best treatment for me?   I know this drug is readily available on the streets.  One phone call to the "right" person could provide me with this pain med that I Need, not that I Want.  Illegally.  But my doctor can't prescribe this pain relief because Federal Law says they can't?

My protests have been heard before, by many voices other than mine, and all voices are silenced because of this Federal Law.  Sad, sad state of our once wonderful country.

They don't think I am an addict.  Their hands are tied for some mind-numbing reason.  They are only reacting this way because they have no power.

First Day of Spring!

I'm still not 100% on the days of the week.  My internal system is a bit discombobulated.  Today is Tuesday.

My friend, lovingly referred to as "Dammit Janet" or "Rose" (from Golden Girls) came to visit yesterday.  If you've read my blog for a bit, you have probably heard about her at least once.

She came in the afternoon, we sat outside for a bit, came in and visited at the kitchen table.  I had been up all day at that point, and was ready for a nap.

At the same time, we both said about the same thing.
Me:   I'm gonna be needing a nap pretty quick.
She:  You look like you are needing a nap.

Then she left.  No long goodbyes, a good hug and a smooch on the cheek.  She went home and I took a nap.

Having a good friend like that, Priceless.  

Later that same day...

Sweetheart is home from the Golf Course.  Pretty windy and a little chilly, but there were only 2 crazy golfers out there, so 27 holes went pretty fast.

Made a few more phone calls today, think I have pretty much every appt. covered.  We will be busy next week.

Tomorrow we have an errand or two to take care of.  A trip to Walmart, and I need to deposit a check.  That will probably be all, and will probably be just enough.  I'll have my phone with me, so there just might be some pics taken.

Until then, Play Nice!  xxoo

It was Just a Little One

Last Tuesday, I had a heart attack.  My phone was broken, so I couldn't call Sweetheart, and by the time I really needed to call him I was laid out on my bed, covered in cold sweats and lots of fear.

He got home, I told him I wasn't feeling well, so off we went to the ER.  It was a very quiet ride.

X-Rays, blood tests and ultra sounds later, I found myself in a helicopter, flying to the best heart hospital (in my opinion) in the KCMO area.

Sweetheart got ahold of Young Son, he was there very quickly.  He called his sister, who had just left for a little family vacay to Poland for the weekend.

A lot of activity when I got there, I was conscious, but felt no pain, which was cool.  2 stents later, one in the wrist and one in the groin, with some kind of balloon thing up in there as well.

The stent from my wrist caused some problems, aneurysm on an artery, which caused more pain than any of the other procedures.  Thursday I had surgery on that, and recovery had begun.  I more night in ICU, then moved to a "regular" room.  Friday night in the reg room.  Released Saturday afternoon.  So glad to be home.

Lots of pain meds, so necessary.  Great nurses in the ICU and the regular room.  Made some new friends, they were so nice to me and Sweetheart...

Speaking of Sweetheart.  I expected nothing less.  He was great. So good to me, the nurses were quite impressed by him, and us as a couple.

Because of the lack of a working phone, I have no pics to share with you.  I would have loved to have taken some selfies with my new Nurse friends.

Anyway, my sister, Kelly, came to visit me Friday night, and stayed for almost 2 hours.  It was a good visit.  My sister, Mary, and her BF, David came up on Tuesday night, they were there for the surgery.  Actually, LifeFlight flew over them on their way to the hospital.

The only night Sweetheart didn't stay was Friday, because of the traffic - KCMO is known for their St. Patrick's Day Celebration.  He left at 4:00 am Friday morning, and came back about 2:00 am on Saturday morning.

Got settled in at home Saturday afternoon/evening.  Mary and David came over with a gift of an AM/PM medicine organizer.

Yesterday we took my new phone to a TMobile store to let them set up my phone.  We stopped at Walmart, and I rode in a cart, one of those with the 2 seats for kids...Sweetheart was the motor.  Good thing, too, because my strength was gone by the time we finished.


The rest of the day I spent lounging in my bed with my pooches.  Beautiful weather, sat outside with them for a bit during the day, too.  

My belly is swollen and covered in little bruises which have joined forces to become one big bruise.  I have so much adhesive residue on my body, that really itches.

I have a 4" incision from my inner wrist towards my elbow on my right arm.  Putting aloe vera (thank you Earlene, for the plant) on it...basically just trying to heal and gain some strength, slowly but surely.

So, that pretty much catches us up.  I won't be doing any stitching or stuffing for a couple of weeks, being that wrist stent is on my right hand.  I'm doing some laps around the dining room now and then.  
To all of those that prayed for me/us, and their friends and friends of friends, I truly appreciate that.  I've had a shower, got some more reside off.  Sweetheart has gone to the golf course, and I'm hoping Dammit Janet can come see me today.

All On A Monday

We made plans last night, Sweetheart and I, to go to a town south of us.  We'll get up and go.

At 8:00 I woke up, he was still snoring, so I snuck in some more zzzzzzs myself, morning dreams are usually pretty good.

Ok, the canines decided it was time for breakfast about 9, fed them, had coffee, stumbled around and dropped my phone right into the sink that I was using, which means it had water in it.  Splosh.


I tried using a blow dryer on it, but that got old real quick, my neighbor (thanks, Judy) gave me some rice, we had none in the house.  That didn't work, at least it didn't work as fast as I wanted it to.  I wanted some Magic out of that borrowed rice.  


Headed out of town at like 11 something, Young Son called, a guy we've been needing to see about lawn care was coming over, so

We turned around, came home, Magic Rice still isn't working.  Saw the guy, stopped at a bank, got on the highway, I swear, Sweetheart is a swervy driver!  Oh my gosh.  I actually asked him if he was having troubles driving, trust me this guy is...oh wait, what if we are both the swerviest drivers ever, because I acknowledge mine, but he doesn't.  Not surprising.

Any way, we went to the Tmobile store, and they said, that those with an internal battery, the rice doesn't work.  Luckily(?) we had insurance on mine, so only $175 out of pocket.  Phones are crazy expensive right now, the one I have anyway.

Then, we're hungry so we stopped at Culvers for lunch.  I had a Reuben and Sweetheart had a burger and a chocolate malt.

Then we went to a new sports equipment store.  Sweetheart got some new shoes.  Then Hobby Lobby, got what I needed but am really kicking myself for not getting a couple sheets of felt, since he was paying. I didn't know that until we got to the checkout line.  Sneaky trick/smart move.

Headed back to H'ville, and I can hear my jammie pants calling me.  I'm tired of being swerved all over the road...don't get me wrong, we have a hoot out shopping, he's witty and funny, personable.

Of course no adventure day is complete without a stop at Walmart, right?

Groceries.  Home.  Groceries put away, sweatpants on and this bra is about to GO.  It's that time of day.

A Peaceful Sunday

Well, we had a little snow, not even enough to measure, but the Guessers say we got .4"  I can handle the amount, but sure would like to have our warmer temps back.  I'm wearing a flannel shirt and sweats today...

The new trashcan is working out.  Nice to come back into my room and not have to pick up the trash, again.  Now the only other thing I need is something to keep my stuffing in.  That Terrier, he loves to rip up plastic bags.  I always gotta remind myself that he was a stray before we got him, so trash was probably the only thing he had to eat.  The button thing, that's just weird.

Working on the Boston Terriers this afternoon, gonna find something to listen to in the background.  Sure looking forward to the last season of Bones to be on Netflix!  I love that show.

While waiting to hear from the BT girl, I whipped this sweet thing up.

He's a happy little bear, I believe.  

The Boston Terrier parts, cut out, some already sewn.  

I'm pretty tickled about a custom order I received over the weekend.  A purple Pushmi-Pullu (from Dr. Doolittle) for a cancer patient.  I have about got it sewn up, I was so inspired.  I lost both my parents due to Cancer.  This one will go out as a freebie, with a lot of prayers going into the making of it.  

For now, though, I should hit the feathers.  Sweetheart wants to do some shopping tomorrow.  Of course we will be stopping at Hobby Lobby, since we'll be in the area.  

I'll click some pics of our little adventure, and share them with you.

Today

Has been a non-descriptive day.  Was supposed to have a meeting with the pres. of the board of Twin Pines.  At 11:00 am.  I already told him that I wouldn't be working there after June, and he had the freakin' nerve to call me at 1:00 pm to tell me he couldn't make it.

I understand that things come up.

The Boston Terrier project is a go, she approved the trial critter. so we're good to go on that.

I'm off to bed,

Woo Hoo! Friday!

Ha, honestly nothing going on here to celebrate.

Sweetheart played some cards out at the club, I hung out here.  When he came home, we went to the grocery store, then down the road to Rae Ray's Rib Shack for 1.5 lbs of some really good brisket.

I found a "Days Countdown" app for my phone.  It will be 89 days before the girls are home.  I am just going to stay as busy as I can, because if I don't, I know the days will drag on and on.

Simply can't wait for them to be home.

This was our last "Monday Adventure" before they left.  
She has grown so much!
(yeah that's me)

I pieced together a trial run of the Boston Terrier a girl commissioned me to make for her and her friend.  I believe it turned out pretty cute, and I'm looking forward to working on the real ones over the weekend...especially because we are supposed to have a snowy weekend, but then back up in the 80s by the end of the week.  Crazy!  

Sweetheart and I have had to take evasive measures against the Terrier we live with.  No more rummaging through my trash, or chewing buttons off Sweetheart's pants.  I have a trash can with a lid, and Sweetheart has a hamper.  

Ha!

So much going on!

I talked to the Pres. of the board at the Golf Course today, over the phone.  I told him that as of June I wouldn't be working there anymore, my girls are coming home and I have grandma plans.

He was cool about it, and I didn't expect anything less.

And I'm not going to worry about who cleans the bathrooms or runs the sweeper, and if they want to hire someone to take my place, I'm cool with that, too.  I love the place, I always have.  I met Sweetheart there and you all know how that went.  This November will be our 17th year together, and neither of us have any plans of changing our togetherness.

I'm waiting up to see the girls for their morning.  I need to talk to both of them.

Our weather is going to revert back to being seasonally correct in the next couple of days.  After having Spring in February, we have a couple of Wintry Mixes and possible snow next week.  I can't tell you how much this disturbs me, but it is what it is.  Can't do anything about it but deal with it.

We're going to do container gardening of vegetables this year.  I'll be starting from seed in the next couple of weeks.  Gardening by the moon, per the Old Farmer's Almanac.

Thursday

What I've learned today...Mario the Terrier does not like roofers.  There were some on the house next door and he about flipped out trying to get back in the house.  Already shook up, the weather turned into thunderbooms and hard rain, he became "Velcro Dog."  Now the rain is stopped and the sun is out, but he's still in Velcro Mode.  Poor little thing.

Career Change

The president of the board at the country club I work at wants a face to face meeting with me to discuss some changes they want to make at the golf course.

Last year I would have been dancing at the chance to share my ideas, but now, since my girls are coming home in June, I'm just going to offer them my experience to help them train someone new.

I've been working there for almost 6 years now, I think...the last year has been non-salary commissions only, and I've not made much moola from there at all.  Time to let someone else handle it, I reckon.

I have 3 years to catch up on with my lovies, 3 years in limbo, without my best girls.  No Monday adventures, no snuggling to sleep, I haven't watched Barney since they left.

So, the insurance adjuster is coming tomorrow because Sweetheart let one of the Roofing Vultures in the house.  If it will get our chimney fixed, I'm all for it.  Now, with a vulture sign in the yard, none of the other vultures will cross that line.

We're getting up early to try out the new coffee house in town tomorrow, so I'd better hit the feathers.

Something Different

Took my loving sister, Mary, to the dentist.  She had to have two teeth pulled.  4 shots of that numbing stuff,  her head was "fuzzy" (her word, as she tapped on her forehead), but she made it to her door ok, and waved goodbye.  Her sweetheart will be there soon to take care of her.

Didn't get to go to Hobby Lobby, as Dammit Janet (my groomer friend) was not feeling well enough to stray very far from her home today.

Another crazy Windy Day...the *guessers* say that there is supposed to be a storm a'blowin' in and it is that time of year, being March and March is always windy.

I need a haircut, I hate it when the wind blows my hair.  I'll be going tomorrow to see my lovely stylist/friend.

Leftover meatloaf and potatoes for dinner tonight.  Waiting for them to warm up.

Nom Nom Nom - enough left for a sandwich for me tomorrow!  

Did I change the font back to normal?  Yes indeed, I did.

This incessant wind.  I usually love stormy sounds, but this is become repetitive to me.  I need a break.

Noticed that trees are already greening.  I saw a Weeping Willow with tiny little leaves today.

Tuesday

Saw my stylist, caught up with her, my loving sister is suffering from her dental experience yesterday.  Not sure what the rest of the day will bring...

We had a storm last night, which is why I didn't post this last night,.  Our lights dimmed and flickered, so we shut everything down.  2 tornadoes, not close to us, thank goodness, and I am praying for those families that were involved.  Lost their homes, all their stuff...

The Weekend

Windy windy windy, it was howling last night, the wind blew hard all day today...I was at the Pro Shop for about an hour.  Long enough to straighten the fridge (I like the cans to be in neat lines), clean the Men's room (a little), and wipe off the main table.  By then "our" group stopped after 9 holes, 3 of them making a bee line to the cart sheds, Sweetheart came in and waited while I locked up.  

We somehow lost all thinking sense and reason, as we decided to go to Walmart at 12;47 on a Sunday afternoon.  

Egad.  There were so.many.people.  I still don't get whole families go grocery shopping together? Why do we do this?  Husband and Wife and Kids all clamber into the mini-van and head on up to Walmart?  On a Sunday, when everyone else is doing the exact same thing.  A few of those kids needed naps, too.  Cranky kids crying for chips as if their little lives depended on getting them.  

I've done my share of "group grocery shopping."  We all used to go as a family, but those were simpler times, there was not "Stranger Danger."  We could hang out in the toy section, or the book section, the folks would gather us and off we'd go, through the checkout, then listen to Dad complain about the cost of food (5 bags = $20) and gas (.29/gallon)  

Ok, time to hit the feathers.  Hope y'all sleep/slept well.

WiNdY!

I stayed home from the Pro Shop today.  Just ain't feelin' it.  Not feelin' like stitching, colored a little bit last night...I don't entirely know why and entirely don't like feeling like this.

Just about freaked myself out a few minutes ago.  Sent Darling Danielle a message, no answer, tried to call, no answer...I finally sent a message to one of their friends there, he told me they were at a play, so probably had their phones off.

Of course, my mind went a hundred different directions.  Just so ready for them to come home.

Another "Non" Day

No new listings yet today, but the day isn't over yet.

In about 3 months I am going to be busier than I have been in the last 3 years, and it's going to be a full time operation for quite a few months after that.  I can't wait!

But for now, I'm resting up when I feel the need for it, and I felt the need yesterday and today.  Probably lag from the whirlwind trip last week.

Sweetheart has really made me laugh a lot this week.  I know this will probably sound silly but here goes.  He is a very private person, and he's a gentleman to the core, therefore, unless it's on the golf course, does he use "bad words,"  We were at Walmart the other day, and the cashier was calling him "Sugar" and "Hon," so I made the comment, quietly to him, and of course kidding, "She better quit flirting with you."  His response, "Oh, she does that to all the guys, she's a slut."

That is not a word that comes out of his mouth on a regular basis, and it's so out of character for him, I died laughing.  I told Young Son the story that night, he cracked up, too.  It's just so funny!

Since that huge hail storm, the Roofer Vultures have been circling all the neighborhoods to drum up business.  2 rang my doorbell yesterday, which I did not answer, even though I am sitting in my bedroom right next to the window.  I saw a stranger walking by the front of the house this afternoon, so I hollered to Sweetheart to watch that guy outside.  We don't like strangers roaming our neighborhood.  Sure enough, ding dong, here's this stranger at the door.  Sweetheart answered, told him no thanks.  I know they are just trying to get business, and good for them, but...after he shut the door, he quietly said, "f******' rooofers.  Ha ha ha!

Told you it was silly.

I may be making a trip to Colorado pretty soon, my daughter's girlfriend is due any day now, and may not have anyone to be there.  It's only  9 hrs away.  Won't that be an adventure?  Maybe not...Sweetheart has qualms about me traveling there by myself.  I am older than I used to be.

I am going to bed early tonight, so I don't sleep the day away.

Last Night

Good Lord have Mercy!  We had a thunder/lightning/hail storm last night.  I have never seen such a storm cell as that one, in all my years on this planet.  The seasons are a little off kilter from when I was a kid.

I sent a Flying Pig on it's way this week, and sent a super cool package off to Germany.  I am staying up late to visit with them tonight/morning.
 

Sweetheart did some yard work today, treating it for grubs, which bring moles, which drives my canines crazy.  Mario was so proud one day, he brought me a dead on.  I accepted it, of course.

I have been watching the 1983 season of "All My Children" off YouTube.  That's two years before Darling Danielle was born...loving the fashions, the commercials, the news breaks.  That's history right there.

New Listings tomorrow.

Play Nice!  xxoo
