Happy Birthday to Me!

Aunt Kaky called to wish me a Happy Birthday today, I didn't have the heart to tell her it was tomorrow. But she did suggest I go and get myself a nice cupcake, which I did. I went to the Fresh Market and got one, let me just say it was delicious. Tasted just like wedding cake! I figured I would have it today and then tomorrow (my birthday) I would start back on healthy living. It's never to late!

Men vs Women's Brains

This is so true! I always need to take it slow and take everything in, get my bearings, digest what is happening, figure out what to do next and how it will affect things.

My brain is always going, sometimes when I try to go to sleep I can't shut off my thoughts, then I look next to me and Jeff has fallen asleep in less than 2 minutes. When we get ready for a trip, Jeff is waiting in the car while I am shutting off lights, turning down the heat and taking care of last minute details (and going potty) and making sure I have everything. Then when we get where we are going it is inevitable that Jeff left something behind or can't find something. In his trip box, the only thing is getting from here to there and somewhere in between get the car washed. Men and women need each others brains or else there would be total chaos!

Fooling around

I should be doing a million other things but instead I am fooling around with my new Mac.  These pictures tell how I felt this morning.  I woke up with a headache, sore throat, stiff neck and stuffy nose.  It's so much fun fooling around with this thing!  I have a lot to learn. Ok, time to get to work.

For all the nose pickers out there

Quit picking your F#*+ing nose in public people!

I have been traveling quite a bit lately and I am amazed at the people that pick their nose and think that no one sees them and on top of it, they try to flick the booger off their finger nonchalantly thinking no one will realize what they are doing. GET REAL..........
This past weekend while waiting for my flight a women, dressed very nice and pretty, started picking her nose and daintily tried to flick it off her finger. Then the women traveling with her did the same thing. Our gate was right next to the restroom, why couldn't they get up off their asses and go use some tissue in the restroom.

On one recent flight I just happened to somehow get lucky and was upgraded to first class. I sat across from a clean cut gentleman, looked like mid forties and dressed preppy. He must of forgotten where he was because he was into reading his book and digging for gold and then rolling the booger around in his fingers trying to flick it off into the isle and it wouldn't flick off. He was flicking like crazy all the while reading his book. This is why you should always use a tissue even when your at home alone, then it won't be a bad habit that you do in public. Yuk! Think of all the times that you had some little speck of something dried on your pants, I will never again try to scratch it off with my fingernail.

My other pet peeves are coughing and not covering your mouth, sneezing without covering your nose and burping. Lord help us that some people are too lazy to have some good habits in public.

You'll never catch me doing it!

The Art of War

Take a look at the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. We are considering donating all of Grandpa's art & letters from the war to them. Unfortunately they want all the originals, so we have to decide what to do, grandma isn't sure she wants to, she would rather have them in the family.
Here is another of Grandpa H's letters to his parent's. Enjoy!
We received some info on having all his artwork copyrighted with the suggestion we have it appraised. (so for now I won't be posting any art). I am trying to get tickets to the Antique Roadshow that will be in our area. I would love to bring all of my Dad's art and letters for an appraisal.

Wii Fit makes me laugh!

Not only do I get a work out with the Wii Fit, it was so funny to me that I laughed so hard I had a hard time finishing my run. As I was running along following my lead runner 2 large heads came up next to me and turned to look at me as they ran pass me, it was Jeffwii and Stevewii. It was so unexpected to have my husband and his friend run past me, I laughed my head off. Here I am getting ready to ski through the flag gates. Didn't do to well at that one or the soccer balls coming at my head, but I did do really well at the yoga portion. Anyway, my workout flew by and I look forward to trying again tomorrow.

A Heck of a Soldier

Hi Everyone,
Well the Holidays are over and I am back in Carolina with my long list of things to do. One of them is to scan all my dads letters that he wrote during the war to his parents and sister. It is quite interesting to read how grateful he was for all the army did for him. I wonder if soldiers now a days appreciate things like they did during WWII. Anyway, I hope you enjoy his 1st letter home.
