Dr. Suess on 2010- Thanks Glenda!

I do not like this Uncle Sam,
I do not like his health care scam.

I do not like these dirty crooks,

or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals,
I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker
Nan ,
I do not like this 'YES, WE CAN'.

I do not like this spending spree---
I'm smart, I know that nothing's free.

I do not like your smug replies,

when I complain about your lies.

I do not like this kind of hope.
I do not like it. nope, nope, nope!

Go green -
recycle Congress
in 2010!

It's Good to be Home!

Hi gang-

Spent a week in PCB... returned home on Monday. Dearest childhood best friend, Amy flew in on Wed. for 4 nights. The brand new airport is only 17 miles from the condo.... and tiny...with no traffic....heavenly!

We ate out for the most part. Whooped it up pretty well..... even managed to have security ringing our bell and banging on the door.... we were feeding seagulls... shrieking and screaming with delight... didn't know that there was a rule against it.... apparently, when over 100 seagulls go into a feeding frenzy, they crap all over the place. It took a few months and a visit from Amy to get "in trouble". LOL Go figure!!

The highlight of the visit was partying with a gang from Montgomery, Alabama. They were great fun and good company.

Water was decent Mon-Thurs, then turned to shit on Friday and Saturday. Much to my dismay, the water looked gorgeous on Monday morning. Just in time for me to go home. *pouting*

Anyway, had a grand time, and now it's back to reality.

Going to the closing on Dom's mother's home tomorrow. Then 3 weeks of Cancer stuff.... another round of all of his childhood immunizations, Aredia infusion, and a visit to his VA Oncologist who we really like...Ginger Rogers, MD. Yes- Ginger Rogers. *smiling*

Dom is beginning to plan a road trip up to visit his childhood best friend in Westlake, Ohio. Taking the Corvette. Nanette shall hold down the fort here. The guy needs some fun, so I'm all for it.

That's all that I know for now.... will finish by uploading some pics.

PCB- You've seen Stingrays, Schools of Fish and NOW "June Grass"


Hi guys... The locals call this stuff "June Grass". I call it slimy algae. It wasn't too bad- after you waded through it, the water was crystal clear. Hope it's outta there before my return on Monday. (Threw in a flock of seagulls for fun.... neighbors were feeding them....note his hand hanging off of the balcony in the top photo)

Another Killer Sunset from Last Week

Wanted to share these beautiful pics with my peeps!

We're Back!!!!

Hey gang-

Have been "out of the loop" for quite some time. We spent about a week at the condo in PCB, then returned home last Saturday to find that our electricity had been knocked out since the prior Wed. Along with our telephone.

Coast Electric got out here immediately and restored our power. AT&T was a different situation entirely.... the quickest that we could get our phone service back was TODAY.... 6 days later! (Didn't matter that Dom retired from the phone company after working for them 30 years... nor did it matter that he is a Cancer patient). *sighing*

Anyway.... all is groovy here. Went to Tulane yesterday for his monthly Aredia infusion.... Dom weighed in at a whopping 188 pounds! My husband has "love handles" for the first time in his life! Good health, good eating and good loving!

We celebrated 2 birthdays recently.... His 1st Birthday, July 17th.... the anniversary of his Stem Cell Transplant. Then, his 65th Birthday on August 11th... quite the contrast, huh?

Going to attach a pic taken yesterday of Tropical Depression #5..... it truly looked sinister!

Happy Friday, gang.... it's good to be back!
