post signatureRANDOM MONTHLY!!!!
It has been a long time since my last post....long, long time!!  Sorry about that; I have really missed all of you very much!
A blast from the past....
I have been very ill and along with the slowly healing broken has just been too hard to post.  I have been diagnosed with COPD, along with asthma and Congestive Heart Failure!!  Sigh!
This is making my quality of life totally sucky!
In October, Dr. John and I spent two glorious weeks in Key West!!  Fun times and lots of rest and sun for both of us.
I see my picture problems continue!!  Sheesh!
I have been able to spend a lot more time with family lately...what a blessing!  And guess what?!  My granddaughter, Emma. is expecting in May!!  woot!  I am going to be a Great Granny!  Love it and love her.  All is going well with her and baby!
As I struggle here, I won't be posting again until mid-January!  Soooooo, Merry Christmas and the very Happiest of  New Years to you all!
Hugs and blessings!
May you have a blessed and wonderful Holiday
Hugging you

Random Tuesday ~ Wow! Has it been that long?


It has been so long since I have shared a single post...let alone a Random!!  Wow!  Where do I begin?

Let's see....August came and went so quickly...grandkids were still populating our house and keeping me busy night and day!!

September, the beginning of fall and the New Mexico State Fair....I took Emma, 20  years old, and Cassie, 21 years old.  Emma had never been to the State Fair and was so excited to go.  She wanted to "ride the rides"!


As part of the experience, Emma got her face painted....HA!  I think the artist got carried away...all down her chest...can we say PERVERT!!!  Ewww!  But it was funny.

Dr. John went to Illinois and hung out with his family.  Brother Bob, Mom, who is 94 and still riding her bike every day, and his niece, Jennifer.  Jennifer took Dr. John to see the St. Louis Cardinals...he loved it!!

The brother, Bob and Jennifer took him out for a wild game of pool.....oh dear....Jennifer was totally amused by Dr. John's attempts.  Ha!!

I will tell you what...blogger is totally driving me won't let me re-size my photos...I have to know some code to do it manually!!!  And then it gets them wrong too!!  Help!!  I need something else here.....ack!!!

Fire surrounded our state this are some pics of the fire in the clouds!!

Inquiring minds want to know...yes they finally figured out that my right wrist was broken!!  Sheesh!  I told them I was in pain...guess they thought I was a whiner!!  SOB's  Anywho...typing is difficult and I am currently doing physical therapy.  I lost my primary doctor...she I have been searching.  Yikes! Choices are slim...and I have yet to be impressed!
I will close for now...pain rulz!!!!!  Stop by Stacy's and check out the journey's of other Randomizers!!!  See Stacy Uncorked to join in too......lots of fun!!

Have a magical and a pain-free day!!
Hugging you

Random Tuesday ~ Slow but Sure.....!

Stacy I am trying to pay attention....really I am!  Helping my granddaughter, Cassie move in last Saturday...I fell when entering her new apartment!!!  Damn!  On my knees and wrist again.  Can you believe it? I sure couldn't!!  Didn't see that step into her apartment....sigh!!

Both knees still messed up and right killing me!!  Going to doctor this morning to have it checked yet again!!


On Sunday, picked up my granddaughter, Emma, to spend the week for a little R & R!!    This is going to be fun!  We are thrift store shopping and mall trekking and lunching to our fill!  Lunch with Cassie today at fav Italian Bistro!

Got some amazing sunset pictures the other day!

Awesome, yes?!!!

Gotta go for now.....hurts too much to continue!!  Sorry!

Visit Stacy.

Have a magical and blessed day!

Random Tuesday ~ Getting back into the drivers' seat!!

Stacy  Well, here we go....I am back in the saddle...well...half way at least.  To say I have missed all of you would be an understatement! Sigh!  

Between the puppy and remodeling and the falls...I am still recovering!  But I just have so much to here we go.....

Last time we talked, my granddaughter. Cassie, had given me her puppy, Ottis, to keep for awhile until she got a place of her own.  One that allows pets!  Cassie is finally moving in this Saturday!  Woot!  Woot!  Bye bye puppy!

I had also gotten granite countertops in our kitchen and new wood floors.  All of that is finished, but I still am in an upheaval!  But the new floors are amazing!

And Ottis!!  Ha!

Original uproar is now a dull whimper...all our books are piled in the dining room.  I plan on getting rid of over half of them and boxing and storing the rest.

The falls took the wind out of my sails for sure...I am still recovering from them.  So it is now slow going.  My confidence has truly been  shaken.  Sigh! 

Just got back from a wonderful trip to my mom's in Lancaster, Ohio and then we drove mom and us to Flint, Michigan for a family reunion and a time to celebrate my Uncle Chuck's 90th birthday!  What a blessing this trip has been.  To see family that I haven't seen for 13 years. 


Michigan....Uncle Frances and his home...

Uncle Chuck, my mom, my brother Jack and his wife Linda and Dr. John and myself...

Uncle Chuck and his siblings....

Uncle Chuck and his kids...

Joyce, Claudette, Sharon, Uncle Chuck and Chuckie....

And a picture of the entire clan...well almost....Ha!

Some people slipped away.....but it was so cool to see the clan all together!!

Some weeks ago, there was a full moon.  I again tried to capture it with my little point and shoot!

There is a tree out by my front patio wall called Golden Rain...the bees adore this tree!

Can you find the bee?

Sunrises in New Mexico...

Right out of the camera.....not altered!!

I think I Randomed you enough this time....enjoy!  Don't forget to stop by Stacy/s at Stacy Uncorked .
She is catching up too!!!  Ha!!

Have a magical and blessed day!
