Just Checking In


It's been a few days since I've posted, so thought I'd better check in.  My family and friends are asking about my proximity to the fires and so I want to let all know that we are fine.  The biggest fires are North of Tulsa - about 100+ miles from us - and the others are kind of Southeast of us a ways.  So for the time being we are safe.  But I must say, it's scarey being on top of a mountain that is all dried up, with dead trees, burned up grass and shrubs from the excessive heat.  It wouldn't take much for it to go up in flames.  I just hope everyone is very cautious and observes the burning bans. 

Moving on, here is a picture of a cool cactus my friend Kathy gave us.  She'd had it sitting in a bucket for a very long time, and so we planted it and gave it a new home.  I think it's doing okay, but with this heat, who knows for sure!

I don't know if it's a big Prickly Pear or some tame kind of paddle cactus or what, but we like it!

We are going to Branson.  My cousin and her husband from Alabama are coming also, so we are sure to have a great time.  We will all be at the same motel, and go to the dinner/ride/show together.  It will be nice to see them and get in a good visit too.  Will also be nice to have someone to take me to breakfast while Ronnie has my car and goes shooting in the mornings!!  I love going out to breakfast!!  Should be a great little mini-vacation.

Went to WalMart - where else?- the other day and bought a bunch of stuff:  a new nightgown, a white tank top, some nail polish, lotion, 2 kinds of perfume, new toothbrushes, etc.  Must have been nuts! came out to $92 and no groceries!  Oh well.............

That's all I know for now.  Until next time, take care and God bless you and yours.
