Oh, yes, something to do with a certain surgery!!! I am as excited as I can be. And I do forgive any and all that have ever laughed at my clowning around while I was eating watermelon and waffles at the same time in my typical brummagem way.

YUP !!!! I have a few
Later this week I am going to have the pleasure of meeting a couple of the regular posters from the daily exercise thread !!!!
After our visit I am going to my FIL's and he will be taking me to the casino !!

I almost forgot this week a bunch of the folks from the Jax forum will be meeting up for one of our famous "pizza patrol parties"

I am also really excited about some upcoming visitors the last week in Sept that will evolve the beach and sunset along with a detour to some roller coasters

August 16 my spouse will drive me to Jax (I still won't drive myself yet!) to the community college to take a couple tests for early childhood education classes I've been taking online.
I *really* want to get this over with.

Aw, Karla...you stole mine! But, in the spirit of Internat'l Forgiveness Day, I forgive you.

OK, I have another one. In about 2 months, My bestest friend and her DH are coming back from their up north summer. I miss her so much.

Going to take the family to a minor league baseball game on the 14th, then the zoo on the 15th with my Sister and Brother-in-Law. We always have a great time together, and neither my wife or kids have seen a minor league game before. Kind of hard to explain the atmosphere at them. Can't wait!

Today is:
National Watermelon Day
it is also
National Waffle Day

Clown week how funny. We are going to see the Scottville Clown Band on the 9th, that is about perfect then.

Christmas. I add things to several boxes all year long for one MEGA gift for a dear friend. During the year, I pay attention to the things she is out of and go overkill on stocking that item for her. Last year it was toilet paper. So the present was a box that a washing machine could fit into filled with cases of toilet paper. This year will be light bulbs. And yes, she has room to store such things - as well as share with others who have similar needs.
