Wishing a wonderful Mother's Day to all you mommies out there!
And to the mommies of all the 4-legged babies!
And to everyone who shares their life and shows love and compassion for others around them!
Good evening, all! Hope you're well. And I know some of you have had some struggles, and I'm so sorry. Praying for a speedy recovery for you.
I am going to ask you a question I never dreamed I'd ever be asking. Have any of you ever seen a toilet with the handle on the right side of the tank?? That is where the handle is on the toilet in the bathroom in my hotel room. I keep trying to flush on the left side. That's not working because there is no handle there! Too funny I think!
And such a blessing that the three missing Cleveland girls/women were found. That is just something else. I am happy for their families.
The trip on my way here to Mobile went well. I finished up at the school in Ootlewah GA and then drove to Moody AL and stopped at the Perz house for a bit. Then I headed on down to Wetumpka AL and spent the weekend with the Williamson family. Betty and I went to a few antique stores. I bought another chair to add to my odds and ends collection of chairs. They're so fun. When the brethren in Warner Robins were packing my belongings, one of the guys called me a chair hoarder!!
It was just about a 2 and a half hour trip here from Montgomery so that wasn't too bad of a drive - not long like it was when I drove down from Kentucky in December of last year. And it was nice to see the brethren here again. And Lord willing, I'll be able to go to Bible study tomorrow night.
It was really weird my first night in the hotel here. It was soooo quiet, like there was no one else here. There were but just quiet ones. But the next night had more people and not so quiet, not too loud, but not so quiet - HA!!
I plan to head back to the Perz household Friday evening after the Buy ends. Look foward to seeing them. And Saturday morning, I will head home! I plan to stop in Decatur AL and have lunch with John and Janice Sugg. Look forward to meeing them!
Take care and God bless you all!
Lots of rain, wind, lightning and thunder!
That was the last 60 to 70 miles of my driving home last night from St Louis MO - whew. I was so glad to pull into my driveway and walk through my front door.
It amazed me to see how fast some folks were driving in those conditions. There was a lot of water. It really helped me when there was a car in front of me whose lights I could follow - helped to see.
Marshmellow sat on the table beside my computer desk watching out the window. But when lightning would flash or thunder clap, she would run off!!
I had to go to St Louis for a training class yesterday for the virtual buys. This afternoon I head south for a Buyback and then Thursday across Alabama towards Mobile AL for a Buyback there.
Home on the 11th of May - already looking forward to it! I miss my felines so when I'm gone. This time they have 2 sitters, and I have a schedule - isn't that crazy. But it sure is nice to have friends who are fellow animal lovers and are willing to help out.
Hope you all have a great Lord's day today and a great week!
With the lovely sun shining through the front door, I noticed little paw prints on the wood laminate in the livingroom while walking into the kitchen...and I know the feline from whom they came - my dear Annabelle. She sometimes hops into the bathtub after I've showered to lick the water. So upon her return to the livingroom, she left her paw prints on the floor as proof. I actually think it's funny. I have friends whose dog likes to do that. Anybody else's pets do that?
Doug & Marsha Lynn spent Saturday night with me on their way home to Alabama. They'd just been in Indiana getting their new dog - Maghnum. He is such a sweetie! But I know 6 cats who do not feel the same way. Maghnum was just as quiet as can be in the house after they arrived until he spotted Marshmellow, and then his barker worked quite well! Marshmellow was quite wary of him! Annnabelle arched her back at him, and Smokey wouldn't come out from under the bed. Then there are the outdoor cats. Missy ran up the tree. Kirby hissed at him. And when Maghnum was on the porch, George arched his back at him just as Annabelle did. While Magnum was inside, George sat at the front door watching him. The canine and felines provided us with much entertainment and enjoyment!!
I found out Magnum's name has that "h" in it. I told Marsha it was hard to add it, but add it I will!
Monday morning - My poor Marshmellow. She was resting so comfortably on my back while we were still in bed when suddenly this huge clap of thunder occurred. She took off like a flash of lightning - poor baby. Sad but funny too!
