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!! :)

"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."

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>>>>>>
Anyway.. here is a link to the drug song. It's quite funny though there are a few.. not so nice words..
Also.. here is a song called. "Snippets" it's very morbid medical humor.. and of course the language belongs in a english pub, where these songs are sung by two doctors. >.> In others words.. it's offensively funny... in a good way?
Anywho, hope you are all doing well, love you muchly.

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!"

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)!

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?
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!!!!!!!

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."

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!!!

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!!!!
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
"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.

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.
