Well.. I have the last of my things to get tomorrow from the GC store then that will be it. Here is a little prayer for all of us who are cooking on Thursday.


Please dont let my turkey be dry.
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off our thighs!

Would you look at these leaves?? THATs not EVEn the half of them. We worked for like 2 hrs today just in the front yard. You know had I been more aware of what trees would do when they shed when I was looking for homesI would have found one that was built on a clean spot of land!! HAHAHA Seriously there is a shit load of leaves.. Im not even doing the back yard.. the guy I get to do my yard will be doing that. My hands I have decided are for cutting hair and making food.. NOT yard work.

Sammy update

Today is a sad sad day. Please read the post below. I came home from errands today and Sammy was shaking and she had a fever. She also had an infection, that I knew couldnt wait til tomorrow. I called Ken, he came home and off to the vet we went.
Needless to say, the vet came out after an X-ray and told us that it was bone cancer on her leg. She was in pain and the quality of her life would be in pain for the rest of her days. We decided to let Sammy go to doggie heaven. It is very devastating for Ken. me too but Ken mostly! In fact a very very hard thing to do.

Sammy for the 2 yrs that I have known her was the best dog ever. She will be very missed and thought of quite often. I love you Sammy girl!!

Poor Sammy

Poor Sammy. We have had the most problems with this right leg. She has like a bone growth from her arthritis on her front paw. I guess its the extra weight on her front legs because the back legs hurt so bad..
Anyhoo.. We have one of Kens socks on her wrapped in tape. We are going on 1 hr that it has been on and not torn off yet. poor sweetie pie!!

Veterens Day Parade

Our Weekend

Ahhh What a weekend. I am gald that it is over. Friday night was opening ceremonies.

Then we went to the dance on Saturday night and oh my Lord, we had a good time. Those men and women were getting down to everything from Gangsta rap to Country.
It was packed on that dance floor. I wanted to go out there for the Electric Slide but I didnt I stayed behind and danced on the side lines. I tell you what High Point has the Special Olympics for 2 more years and then it moves to another city in NC. It is a special privilige to know and work with these athletes. Most of them have and extra chromosone,Which I think is Love. They are so full of love!!!!! When they see you coming they automatically put their hands out for a handshake or their arms open for a hug. I have never in my life seen someone so happy to be out there having fun. There is a pic of Lightening and boy he is my favorite.It takes Lightening like 3 minutes to go 100 meters. Its just great he is so happy. Along with Wilma, after she crossed the finish line she does her little butt shake. hahaha It is so funny! The Firemen there were very nice too.. Enjoy the pictures..

Hmmmmm This is a great pic!!

Friday, November 7, 2008

The Special Olympics start today. The opening ceremonies start at 7pm!! I cant wait. Ken vol there for the roller skating event. There is this one man called "Lightening" He is so awesome. He walks it instead of actually roller skating it, they had to glue his wheels so that they wouldnt move. The best part about Lightening is that even though he is last place you would never know it when he steps off that rink. Lightening gets so many people rooting for him . Such a wonderful thing. I will have pictures for all this weekend. We got a busy one ahead.. the spec olym the Vererans Day parade that Ken will march in.. he will look so handsome in his uniform .. its is like a Honor Guard uniform.. HMMMMMMMM Oye.. talk later must goto work.. Katie what is Yoville on FB??? do you know anthing about it?
