Sorry for the silence...

Even the cats agreed, yesterday was a day for a nap! Aren't they adorable?!?

Been really busy catching up after my trip down south, but hopefully things have settled down. At least for a little while. Yesterday afternoon, when I was sure I was going to give you guys an update, Binx, Boots, and I took a nap. Well, Lily joined us, too, but she always naps, so that wasn't unusual.

Wouldn't have been so tired yesterday, but we had an absolutely insane day at the vet office. We are only open from 8-12, but we didn't get out of there until almost 2 yesterday. Makes for a long day.

Well, I'll probably have some other stuff up later. Just wanted to let you know I was still alive. Love you all...
Oh, and thanks to CopperWolf for taking the above pic. And, before you ask, no, he didn't take one of me. He's smarter than that!! :)

Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden had a wonderful orchid exhibit.Also some of the biggest ferns you could ever see. Enjoy....

Arlington National Cemetary

The cemetery is always a tearful visit.The only white wooden cross is Bob Kennedy's The changing of the guard is done every30 minutes now it used to be you'd wait2 see it done.

It had ducks.

Let's hope it puts out the fire on Sauratown Mtn.

Thanks for the ride to the HP Depot.

A little Humor and Truth for your day!

Little Suzy had a box of very small kittens that she was trying to give away, so she had them out on the street corner with a sign "FREE KITTENS" next to them. Suddenly a big line of big black cars came up with a policeman on a motorcycle in front. The cars all stopped and a tall man stepped out from the biggest car. "Hi, little girl, what do you have there in the box?" he asked. "Kittens" Little Suzy says. "They're so small, their eyes are not even open yet." "What kind of kittens are they?" he asked.
"DEMOCRATS" says Little Suzy. The tall man smiled, returned to his car and they drove away. Sensing a good photo opportunity, Barack Hussein Obama called his campaign manager and told him about the little girl and the kittens. It was planned that they would return the next day, have all the media there and tell everyone about these great kittens. The next day, Little Suzy is standing out on the corner with her box of kittens with the "FREE KITTENS" sign and the big motorcade of black cars pulled up with all the vans and trucks from ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN. Everyone had their cameras ready and then, Barack Hussein Obama got out of his limo and walked up to Little Suzy. "Now, don't be frightened," he said, "I just want you to tell all these nice news people just what kind of kittens you're giving away today." "Yes sir," Suzy said, "They are all "REPUBLICAN" kittens." Taken by surprise, Obama said, "But yesterday, you told me that they were DEMOCRATS."

Little Suzy says, "Yes, I know. But today, they have their eyes open."

We are home!
Last blog we were in DC. Uncle J was feeling better.
We went to the Library of Congress,Archives(I went to the Art museums while J & Charlie went to Archives),Old post office pavilion,Boy Scout monument ,WWII monument,Then walked back towards Inn until a Taxi stopped for us.(Now the pain has spread from feet-ankles-knees-to left hip.)
Too old to walk that much.
About 19:30" Charlie started driving the Buick".He did not stop until24:00. Then we added diarrhea. I thought I was back working at Forsyth Med Center.I'm glad I can still work all night and function on 2 hours of sleep. Anyway We rented a car and drove home Wed.Charlie slept in the back almost all the way home.It only took 6 hours and traffic was not bad.
I'll post some pics as soon as I read how to download from the new camera.
Love to all and hope you avoid the BUICK RIDE>>>>>>

Officer Notes

A local cop stops a man for running a red light The guy is a real jerk and comes running back to the officer. The violator demands to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The "Motorist" instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit terms. The officer, being a
professional, takes it all in stride, figuring "Battleship mouth and Rowboat Ass".
The tirade goes on without the cop saying anything.

When he gets done with writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the ticket. He then hands it to the "Violator" The guy reads the ticket angrily, points to the "AH" and demands to know what it stands for. The officer then removes his sunglasses , gets in the middle of the guy's face and says , "That's so when we go to court, I'll remember you're an A**hole!"

A month later they are in court. The "Violator" has such a bad record he is about to lose his license and has hired an attorney to represent him. On the
stand the officer testifies to seeing the man run the red light. Under cross examination the defense attorney asks; "Officer is this a reasonable facsimile
of the ticket you issued my client?"

Officer responds, "Yes sir, this is the defendants copy, same number at the bottom as the original."

Attorney: "Officer, is there any particular marking or notation on this ticket you don't normally make?"

Officer: "Yes sir, in the lower right corner of the ticket there is an 'AH', underlined."

Attorney: "What does the 'AH' stand for, Officer?"

Officer: "Aggressive and Hostile, Sir."

Attorney: "Aggressive and Hostile?"

Officer: "Yes Sir."

Attorney: "Officer,,,, Are you sure it doesn't stand for A**hole?"

Officer: "Well Sir, You know your client better than I do!"

The Lightening and My Life

Doesn't that just take your breath away? Something so deadly and destructive and yet so beautiful. Just thoughts out of my brain--sorry you have to be exposed to such--however, nothing gross!! It's a MIRACLE!!! I sent the email that this is from to all of you(that's why it looks familiar). Nothing going on with me other than work, so I thought I would post something. I have nothing else to say.

Oh for those of you who I haven't told yet, somehow I missed the deadline for the school in NY that I wanted to go to, so on to plan B. Not sure I can afford plan B. The search continues for an affordable distance learning program for Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. They could have posted a deadline on their website or at least the application form. Anyway, so now I have to take the GRE--GREAT! Standardized tests do not work well for me. So at this point, I am at the end of this lightening. Boy is it pretty up close!!! (AND HOT--does anyone smell burning hair and flesh?--sorry, you know I couldn't get away without some kind of GROSS--and believe me burning hair and flesh STINK!!!)

Hope you all are well. Hondo is well and does a good job of putting up with me. Who else would? I get to eat dinner with THE MOM tomorrow (nananabooboo)!

Hey Eveyone,
From your favorite nurse on call. Yes J was up early "to drive the buick".He vomited from the bathroom door toward the commode.After we cleaned thr bathroom up,He went back to bed.
Second time getting up he insisted he was fine so off we walked to the Washington Momument and the Holocaust museum. Before we got the tickets to the Holocaust museum
we sent him to the Inn in a cab.He called when he was in the room and has slept today.
Charlie and I went thru then went to 2 art museums and the sculpture gardens.I am too challanged to figure out how to put Pics on here> In addition to my feet my knees are killing me. Will see you soon.
Hope there is not too much snow. It flurried here today

Chainsaw and the mom

Sophie and I just made it home by the skin of our teeth. It started to rain and snow at the same time and the wind was nasty. I was really cold. The walk did not help Soph at all. She was acting like the horses do in cold weather. Bad. But we made it home. Chainsaw was in the back know how you have to do...... put Soph on the deck and close the gate, ......let Chain out the fence gate( with out getting electrocuted ) ect,ect,ect, Well the next door neighbor puts a Shepard out that has never been there before. It's raining and snowing and the wind is nasty. So soph goes nuts!!! And Chain decides she wants to go for a run!!! No joke- a run. She can fly , when I'm chasing her. in the snow and wind and rain. A white hair old woman and a black and white hair old dog.. She can't hear me calling her name. But all the neighbors did. We could of had 10,000 dollars if we had a camera!!! Needless to say , we are not speaking at the moment. I love yal, Think I'll go see if I have any wine. love to all.


howdy to everyone I FINALLY figured out how to do this ( really mom told me how) I sure did miss everyone yesterday (EASTER) I couldn't even email anyone and I couldn't get anyone to answer their phone. I sure hope everyone had a great day. mine was ok. I will get some pic as soon as I have time. Everybody knows how handsome I am anyway.

Christy emailed me I sent her everyone's so she should get in touch If you have her address. drop her a line. If I can get back here tomorrow I'll talk then. bye dad

I had the best time

Anna and I went out to lunch and did the town. We ate at the carving board and sat outside. That was how pretty the day was. We talked about y'all, and laughed and giggled all day. You guys make for some really great conversation!! All quiet positive I assure you ( I am the Mom!) Anna and I haven't had a day together in a long time and We really had great fun. I really have enjoyed all the posts.and the pictures. Davy, put on your shirt!!! Where do you think you are, the desert ,or something. ?I do miss the dad. can you believe it! But all in all, the home front is ok. Except for the grass. It keeps growing and growing. Sophie can't find her toys. She really is a lot of company. I have her figured out . I throw the ball until she slows down and then we go for a walk. No skin off my nose/ just a much more pleasant walk. and via Suzy , Sophie is on a diet. Chain is ok. She is flying down the sidewalk everyday!! I just leave the door open and she goes out and sunbaths when she wants. Comes in when she wants. The cat hasn't caught on yet. Love to all of you and have a great Easter. Keep those posts coming I enjoy everyone. Helps keep the lonely away.

Pics of Davy!

Hello! Me again :). Just got some pictures of Davy and thought you might enjoy them. He looks very tired because he is rather under the weather with major coughing/ sinus stuff acting up again, but he is well medicated having seen the doctor today. I was right he is 'filling out' as you can see in the torso picture. Still super skinny though :) Also you can see the absolutely gorgeous room he has (kinda depressing, but it is only meant for short hours of sleep).


Maundy Thrusday/Good Friday Vigil

Last night I participated in one of my all time favorite activites: the all night Easter vigil. Holy week before Easter is truly one of my favorite times of year and participating in the all night vigil really allows me to reflect on so many things. As I signed up for the 2 am to 3 am slot I was alone in the dimmed church for most of my time. The incredible peace that settled around me was amazing! You can truly feel the love and compassion of God. Though being so late I can understand how the apostles kept falling asleep when in the olive groves with Jesus before he was arrested.

Here are some pictures I took to show the peace and beauty of God's house. Hope you enjoy!

Suzy's home :(

Hello hello! Well Suzy is home safe and sound. We had a really fun two days together and goodness was it wonderful!!!!!


I went to work in the morning and Suzy went to the beach and rode the bike around the island. Then of course looking oh so cute and elegant had a yummy lunch at the 'it' place on the island, Cucina. Afterwards we walked all over Worth Avenue and looked at all the amazing stores and ridiculously priced merchandise. Afterwards we went home and relaxed, chit chatted for hours and then had a yummy shrimp pasta dinner. Of course Suzy got the last shrimp ;)! Then a nice walk to the beach and then along the lake trail before going home and sleeping.


Beach for Suzy and work for me in the morning. Had a leftover lunch and then Suzy packed. We then headed to a place called City Place that is an outdoor 'mall'. We walked around and of course happened across a fantastic sale that Macy's was holding just for Suzy so of course we had to check it out :). Afterwards we had fun walking around and hanging out at Barnes and Noble, all the while chit chatting some more. When 6ish came around we went to the Cheesecake Factory and shared a delicious dinner of loaded bake potato soup and calamari, delicious! Then unfortunately it was time to drive down to Ft. Lauderdale and drop off Mrs. Suzy at the aiport. As we arrived a bit early to make sure there weren't any problems I stayed and Suzy and I hung out for an hour before she went through checkpoint. Thankfully I received the 1am phone call to let me know that she was safe and sound in N.C.

It was really a wonderful time and I can't wait for a repeat performance! Plus now everyone has to come and visit too! :) Hope all is well with everyone! Lots of love! xoxoxoxo

ps: picture is super squinty because the sun was super bright, but thought you would enjoy seeing some Suzy Vic :)

Long Day

How precious is thy steadfast love,O God! The children of men take refuge in the shadow of thy wings.
Please remember Vicky's family in your prayers.She went home today.
With Love,Merry


not sure who makes the wine.....

Suzy Vic Time has begun!!!!!

Good morning! Suzy has arrived safe and soundly to Florida! Unfortunately her flight was rather late so I ended up picking her up at the Ft. Lauderdale aiport at 12:40ish. There was an insane amount of traffic so I assume many flights across the country had been delayed. Anyways we had a great time chatting on the hour drive home and of course instead of going to sleep right away we had to chit chat some more until 3ish. So needless to say I am a bit tired at work this morning, but can't wait to get off at noon to see Suzy! Not sure what our plans are, but we will make sure to take pictures and have loads of fun for everyone :)

All is well! I am here now so Anna this means you can stop beating on me about this! LOL

Daughtry AND BON JOVI!!!

HI!!! Was at the Bon Jovi concert last night. It was a great concert!!! Daughtry was good--BON JOVI was awesome!!! He did a lot of his older stuff. I think he said that his first album came out in 1982! Of course, there were a lot of "older" people there for Bon Jovi and a lot of "younger" people there for Daughtry. I was amazed at seeing so many little kids there---on a school night too!! The best was the "YOUNG BLOOD" duet (Bon Jovi and Chris Daughtry). Though, it was a KICK seeing Daughtry's drummer in a KILT!!! I wasn't close enough to see what tartan/clan was represented. Of course, I am in the middle ages and don't have a camera, so no pics :(. But we did get to see Bon Jovi shake his booty ALOT!!! It was also fun to watch the people: very hoochy outfits, crazy dancing, the drunks... One guy a few rows down from us played some SERIOUS air guitar and drums, we were just waiting for him to fall!!! Then there was the extremely inebriated girl a row behind and to the right of us, that fell down the stairs, of course another drunk helped "EMS" her (those were his words!). It was very funny cause she tried to play it off and all of the colliseum guys kept coming up to her wanting to call the real EMS(just to make sure she wouldn't sue I'm sure). She said no in between singing the verses of the current song--It was quite funny. The air guitar guy was the best!!! Hope you all are doing well. Sorry for no pics!!(from the actual concert)
PS BON JOVI has signature wine!! (for all you winos) You have to get it from his website!

What I did today

So, Phil took me to a few different garden centers today. I found a great one, called Fairview, on Holly Springs Rd. Anyways, I wanted to plant some herbs out but was told that's a bad idea until about April 15. So, Phil let me get some cacti to play with instead. Aren't they cute?!? (I hope The Mom likes what I did with the bowl she got me!)
Since we were doing garden stuff, I trimmed up my yellow jessamine vine around my mailbox. Here are some of the cuttings. I wonder if they'll root. Also, here's a daffodil I saved that got a little crushed when the men chopped down the Bradford Pear we were afraid was going to crash into our kitchen. Isn't it pretty?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LILY!!! Update: Toy for Lily!!

UPDATE: Lily got a new toy. Considering the current events, Phil and I both felt an alligator was appropriate. Lily really likes him; here she is tuckered out after making him go "Squeak-Squeak!" a lot!!

Well, the Lily is 8 years old today. Let's all wish her a very happy birthday!! And let's all give her a big kiss. I already have; now it's your turn!!!!!!!


We spent the day in Hickory.District Band festival. Charlie is playing solo on French Horn.LHS had 2 entries because the band is so large.Concert band he plays the french horn.During the Wind Ensemble he plays the trumpet. This was at LeonoirRhy. college in Hickory.They did well.
In between sets J & I went to the Hickory Tap Rm for many beers too little time.The pic at the rt. is post Tap room. Haa I'm drinking coffee being a responsible band booster. Love to all.

Love everybody and talk soon they are running me out bye dad

More Funny Crook News

2 boys allegedly try to rob police station

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Friday, March 14, 2008

PORT ST. LUCIE — Police arrested two boys, ages 12 and 14, accused of attempting to rob a police station while one pretended to hold a gun under his coat.

A half-dozen officers poured into the lobby within minutes, arresting both boys on charges of attempted armed robbery, police spokesman Rob Vega said.

The 14-year-old also was charged with violating his probation.

Both were booked at the St. Lucie Regional Juvenile Detention Center.

The boys walked into the lobby of the Port St. Lucie Police Department's western regional station about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and demanded money, Vega said.

Tucking one hand inside his jacket as though he held a gun, the 12-year-old picked up a telephone handset and ordered one of two aides working behind a bulletproof glass enclosure to put up her hands and give him all of her money, Vega said.

Surveillance video captured the episode, including the 14-year-old's brief chuckle as his accomplice made his demands.

The 14-year-old then disappeared into the lobby bathroom as the 12-year-old paced around, pointing first at his eyes, then at the second aide, as if to say, "I'm watching you," Vega said.

The first aide hung up the handset and ran out of the lobby booth, screaming for help.

Police officers, who had just finished defensive tactics training, streamed into the lobby, encircling the boys. One had his gun drawn.

The boys laughed as police arrested them, said Vega, who called the stunt a "really dumb move."

"They didn't show any signs of remorse whatsoever," he said. "To them, the entire incident was a big joke."

Davy's Day Trip

Hello hello! David had a fabulous time on his day trip yesterday. Only down side was that he had a wicked sunburn. So here are all of the pictures I could get so far (actually WAYYYYY too many pics so created Shutterfly folder. Info at bottom of blog). Hopefully there will be more when David can get to Kyle's camera.Also there will be videos, but at a later date. Here are some blurbs with the pics. Sorry some of them are jumbled but I just copied and pasted from our chat convo:

1. Camel that liked David
2. Tour guide
3. Across the water was Saudi Arabia
4. Tents: "we went swimming laid out, played cards relaxed, then ate the food they had been cooking for us on outside grills. the tents were there for us to get out of the sun and change. after food we smoked a huka and went back. no its just the companie's place for the tour. no its just the companie's place for the tour"
5. Swimming: "in the ocean. man was it salty. but the water was soooo clear. more so than i've seen in a long time"
6. on duning:
"me:were you driving?and i thought you all were on atv? David: cars are cheaper^-^ me: really?what if they roll over? David: yep, it's split 5 ways that waywe thought so too until we did it me: oh! so one driver and then 4 of you in the car David: 5 me: were you all allowed to drive? David: no we rode too good fo a chance for us to flip and kill everyone me: good point David: no roll cages me: those cars must not last at all with all that sand"

Alrighty, so i have tried to attach a small video preview of a car racing across the dunes. Hopefully it works. All the pics that I have managed to get so far have been sent to you via email. Let me know if it doesn't work and I'll try another way of sending it to you. I tried creating a powerpoint, but nothing was working to put it on David's site. Anyways, let me know if you need help seeing them!

Hope all is well! xoxoxoxo

Just who is working in highway construction crews these days?

Phil and I saw this sign in Cary a while ago. I got one of the biggest laughs of my life out of this sign. I think one thought can sum it up: Only in North Carolina!

P.S. For those of you who do not see what is wrong with this picture, just realize that means either you were born in North Carolina or you've been here too long!

P.P.S Happy PI Day!!!

I am trying to write an essay to get into school. I really need to submit my application asap. I know we all have trouble writing about ourselves....

These are the 3 points I must discuss....

Discuss the personal qualities and attributes that you think will be useful as well as those that you feel need further development in preparation for the nursing profession.

Provide your own definition of cultural competence, ethical sensitivity, leadership and life-long learning as well as how you may incorporate these concepts in your professional practice.

Discuss how a graduate education in nursing will impact your future career goals.

I need your HELP!!!!

I lauged so hard I almost wrecked!!!

Why females should avoid a girls night out after they are married....

If this does not make you laugh out loud, you have lost your sense of humor.

The other night I was invited out for a night with the 'girls.' I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!' Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily.

Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times.

Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. Even when totally smashed... 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos = MIDNIGHT!

The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him 'MIDNIGHT'... he didn't seem pissed off in the least. Whew, I got away with that one!

Then he said 'We need a new cuckoo clock.' When I asked him why, he said,

'Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said 'oh shit.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted

Quote of the Week

Upon reviewing a patient's History and Physical from this admission, this is what he said to the doctors about the reason he came to the Emergency Department:

"I feel like I was shot at and missed, s**t at and HIT!!!"

Don't we all feel like that sometimes? I laughed so hard I thought I was going to pee my pants!! Just the mental image alone causes tears to come to my eyes.

Thought you guys would appreciate the humor.

(hat tip Hot Air)

Biking around Wild Dunes on Thursday

We biked around Wild Dunes Thursday afternoon when we got done at the beach. If you go to the Wild Dunes website, you can go to their interactive map. (Or you can just click on that link.) Phil's aunt's place is in the upper right corner (#25 Lakeside). We biked from there all the way to Waterway Island (top left), then circled back. It was a long trip, but it was a lot of fun. The homes on Waterway Island were HUGE and some of them were even gorgeous. We saw this really cool flower pot man with flower pot puppies. And we also saw this really cute waterfall. There were tons of turtles everywhere; here's a shot of some of them that Phil ran across the road to take for me. Then we were going to play some tennis, but Phil's legs hurt. OK, mine did, too. So, we watched a movie then got ready for our fancy dinner out. Will post more about that later.
