Thanks everyone...it feels nice to have folks wish me a special day. I suppose at this point, if truth be told, this has become sort of rote after 57 years of it happening. Nothing special planned here though a trip to Charlestown WVA to do some slot playing is planned very soon in honor of both John's and my birthdays which are close. Thank you Cole for starting the thread. You folks rock!!!
To those mentioning stink bugs...the temperatures today are supposed to be in the eighties. I have a very strong feeling that I will be able to catch twice the amount of the last few days since I have been counting. Yesterdays number caught was 153...and you guys think you have it bad. hahaha Thankfully, they don't seem to be entering the house they way they did the first year or two that we began dealing with them. Maybe they have learned to hide better...but let's hope not!!!
No, this gal is the late one this year. Sorry I missed your birthday Ruby. Hugs & hoping you had a wonderful day. And I was going to call you and my poor brain forgot all about that too, arrrgh. I Am so sorrry. We were going to go to Dillwyn last Friday
one more time to bring the camper home but Hurricane Sandy and the fact that Bob's Daddy is in the hospital in Gettysburg kinda put the skids to that. Judy .
Gosh everyone...such beautiful sentiments and I have never seen such a lovely and funny collection of pictures attached to the greetings. I had to stop and gaze upon all of them...amazing photography and so very special. I might print them all out and have them as a keepsake to look at on days when I am not feeling the greatest.
I hope that I will be able to live down the Stink Bug Queen status that I have developed this week. Would really prefer to be thought of in any terms other than that, but have just had to share my capturing count. Only ten all day yesterday...I would say that they have hunkered down in a warm and safe place to wait out the storm.
After the July derecho, we called a whole house generator company. They are currently running three months behind in sales and installation. It will still be at least twelve weeks before they can get here to install ours...wish this wasn't the case, but seems that the whole area had the same ideas as ourselves and we have to wait our turn. I am sure that if we are without power this week, I won't have very lovely thoughts of the company, but will try to hold my tongue.
Anyway...thank each and every one of you for your birthday wishes...they are all very, very special.
