Well, I wrote a big ol' long post, full of ravishingly fascinating minutiae, only to have every speck of it disappear forever!  If anyone runs into it, do let me know.

In the meanwhile, I will try to redo it, so y'all won't have to suffer deprivation from my deathless prose for too long.

Becky left Missouri in the wee hours, and Debi picked her up and they called me on their way back to Deborah's.  Steve is beside himself with Joy and Anticipation; he does love Our Rebecca.  Becky is tickled to be here for Commissioning Week (we used to call it Graduation Week back in the day, and the place was West Point. I never dreamed I would spend my last years in Enemy Territory!) For those of you who are drawing a blank, my dad was a West Point grad and I spent my early years as an Army Brat.  I have never been able to find out, in all these long years, why Army kids are Brats, while Navy kids are Juniors.  If anyone knows, DO enlighten me.  As for what they call Air Force kids. I have no notion.  We did not even have an Air Force Academy when I was coming up!  They were just tacked on to the Army at first.  But then again, the aeroplane had not been around very long back then.  Anyway, the Blue Angels are doing their almost all day long practice runs TODAY!  Woo hoo!

You can hear them outside.  What a roar they make: especially when they pass over this building!  Fun!

They will do their Big Show for grads and their families and guests tomorrow.  Today is just as good, though: and they do their stuff over and over in practice!  We will catch it all from Debi's dining room while we play Mexican Train and I stuff down the Spumoni.

We have gorgeous weather, and are glad of it. 



Have a fun day today playing Mexican Train with your daughters and your son, and enjoy lots of spumoni and some birthday cake! :cake:


Mary Page Happy Birthday..

Goodnight ------ To anyone who's still up.



Back up, I usually sleep 2 or 3 hours & get up to see what I'm missing. Will turn off the lights when I shut down, Rick.

Happy Birthday, Mary Page. Sounds like a great party, hope to see a photo of the gathering!


Good morning Shirley.  You're down, I'm up. Hello to whoever else gets here. Hopefully a nice warm, sunny, day for everyone.



MaryPage, Happy Birthday!. It sounds like you have been having a fun week.


It hasn't been a particularly fun week for some of the ships on the Great Lakes this past week or so. John Boland made an emergency trip to Duluth to have a hole in its hull repaired. Mark W. Barker, the newest Great Lakes freighter, lost power and grounded on Belle Isle, and now last night Cuyahoga suffered an engine fire out on Lake Erie. Cuyahoga is the oldest Canadian ship sailing the Great Lakes. There are only two others, I read, that are older. I am guessing those two would be Alpena and Lee A. Tregurtha, both American registered.


Jackie, those flowers are Gorgeous, and I thank you!  Real heart warmers they!

We had a great game and a great luncheon.  I've had loads of cards and gifts.  I am particularly taken with a large box of what look like very large chocolates, each one in a different variety of highly decorated chocolate shells.  Huge strawberries!  Yum! Yum! Yum!  These came from my daughter Elizabeth.

The Spumoni was/is divine.  I brought home several pints, as well and all.  Feeling spoiled!


I am sorry
I have not been posting as much as I would like.  I postin the SODA SHOPPE and try to share it here but question if that might bug everyone as most of us post in both folders😩

First off........HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES to you, MARYPAGE.  I am so sorry to be this late to do this. It seems you had a lovely day that is wonderful ❣️ YOU my friend deserve to be spoiled as much as possible 🥰

Life continues with health issues.  Sometimes I just feel like running away and take my chances with what is left of my life then continue to see all of these doctors that seem to want to help me.  I am thankful for having good ones but quest times wonder IF they really are needed🤷�♀️

Love all of your posts...sorry for not commenting on each and every post.

MARILYN, I have often wondered myself if our Kate will want to  follow in Miss Emily's footsteps?? This weekend she is at a competition at Disneyland.  I would have loved to have gone but we are the dog sitter‼️

My best to you ALL.

Looks like a cool and windy Memorial Day weekend here.   Our weather is sticking to the traditional Gray-May,  and soon be June-Gloom.  Then around Father's Day, the sun comes out and the hot days of Summer finally arrive.

Jenny -  So sorry you're still suffering from health issues, causing you pain and too many doctor visits!  :(  Hoping some of those doctors will come up with something new that will help you?  Good for Kate, that she's continuing on with her dance competitions. This one at Disneyland, will be fun for the whole family. 

Mary Page -  Looks like your birthday celebration came off as planned, with all of your adult children there with you. :love:  You mentioned that a couple of your daughters would be staying on with you this week, so I'm sure that the fun will continue on!  :)

Hope that all Bait and Tacklers, have a great holiday weekend!  :thumbup:


Good evening‼️ Raining out again tonight.  It was beautiful earlier today and we should NEVER complain about getting moisture ‼️

MARILYN, thank you for your kind words.  For some dumb reason I never anticipated being in my shoes.  There were very little medical issues in my family and I have always been healthy....then that fall two years ago seemed to change it ALL. It is what I have been dealt so I must deal with it.....as many in our group do🤪🤪🤪. I sure do appreciate the continuing support you all give me🥰. We just finished watching our granddaughter dancing her solo at Disney Land. She danced beautifully....of course🥰🥰🥰

Wow. This horrendous
air quality is truly ghastly.  Becky is back in Missouri, and I just sent Chip to the store with the caution:  "Come straight home and DON'T BREATHE!"

We are right next to Washington, D.C. and they are cancelling all of their ball games and such today.  Amazing!

Fortunately, we have no plans for the weekend, so will lie low and do as little as possible.
