1st hair cut and other stuff

Another "fun" day.

We had bubbles in the house and I am working

on saying "bubbles". Mom & grandma understand it,

but I don't think other people do yet. I'll keep practicing.

Mom needs to learn to share!

I wanted to play with HER dominos and

she kept blocking me .

Can you believe how stingy she is ??

Why are Grandma & Granpa laughing

so hard.

Grandpa shares his dominos with me

and Mom said it is time for a hair cut.

Look at this cool firetruck!!

Just like the ones at Grandpa's work !!

This is FUN !!!

Hey, she's really good at this stuff..

Can you believe it--

a fire truck and a movie !!!

What a deal....

I'm loving this truck.

Me and Mom & Grandpa & Grandma
went to the Cheescake Factory. Dad was
working. I ate my lunch then it was
time for dessert. As you can tell we chose the
CHOCOLATE fudge pecan turtle cheesecake.
Y U M !!!
Double Yum !!!
Do you think I should order another slice?

Lunch is over and we were going to Pottery Barn

for kids, when this horse came walking right

down the middle of the street! The lady let

us pet the horse. He was BIG !!

Here is the chair that Mom got for me - she said it

was time because I have had to sit on people. I sat on their

heads, belly, legs or neck .

That's it for now...

Rainy Day Draining event

Tom is doing good today except for the
drain which needs to be removed.
I could remove it it need be - but knowing
how painful it is , I really did not want to be
the one to do it. He called Chief McCall and
the Chief said it would be no problem . Since
Tom wanted the drain removed NOW- he asked if
he could come to Central, and again the
Chief said " no problem."
Tom got dressed and I drove him down there-- Yes,
he had a pain killer before we left the house.
When we get to Central, we are directed to the
conference room , only to be greeted by
the Chief, Mark W., Alan T., Billy S.,
Kevin B. and Cindy.(She left the room
before the procedure began)OMG-- I forgot
that Roger was there also ..
The conference table was draped for surgery ,
The Patient
The Procedure begins
and continues
FINALLY - the drain is OUT!!
What a relief !!!
I just want to thank all that were involved !!
It was good for Tom(and me ) to know
that the Fire Department is there for him.
Comic relief is ALWAYS welcome !!!
Special thanks to Kevin for making
the trip to bring Tom the "cooler"
It is working GREAT !!!


We are really lucky to be involved with a

great bunch of people , no matter

how bizarre they are on some days ..

((only kidding ))


Thanks AGAIN !!!!

Warm weather

It's official - warm weather is here.
I mowed the front yard today and "tried" to
trim some of the bushes..
I think that will be a
Tom job.
Okay, let's discuss the diet,
as I sit here drinking yet another "shake" .
No not a milk shake-- still no dairy products.
Last week when I went to Fat School-
they always ask-- did you cheat.
Hello- I was in Texas - great Mexican food
Hell yes, I cheated. and still managed to lose
1.9#. Then One of the doctors asked if I have
tried his recipe in the food supplement
recipe book.
I asked him- Was yours the eraser, the sponge
or the slime.
He did not respond.
These damn people have no sense of humor.
My talents are truly wasted here.......
The good news is -- I tried on a pair of pants that
I wore 3 years ago, and they FIT !!
I have actually thrown away 3 "bigger"
t-shirts, because I am not going to need that
size ever again. I need to lose another
1# 8 oz and then I am going to go have
my hair cut and highlighted..
A treat for hitting the 25# weight loss.
After the next 25# it will be
new clothes, because by then I will need them.
Tom is having knee surgery Tuesday morning.
I will keep you posted on his progress.
We are hoping to go to Texas for a while ,
before he starts physical therapy.
Yes, we both need a Jack fix..

What is all of the "moving" talk
