3/4 Storms, etc.

I was up most of the night with the puppies. The thunderstorms were huge and fantastic, but kept waking up Quincy. Poor Cookie was already awake. She gets really scared during bad storms. Plus she had diarrhea. Q has the tapeworms and C has the diarrhea. Go figure. (Cookie didn't have an accident however--just had to go outside every half hour or so until around 4 this morning. I'm proud of her for not messing in the house.)

I'm waiting for the Sears technician to arrive. (Insert doorbell sound.) He's here now, and we have two new motors plus other parts. So the elliptical should be entirely fixed today. That makes me happy. Now that it's fixed it's time for the elliptical to be moved to Quincy and to not work again.

I forgot to post this. But when I was leaving the conference at the Beau Rivage last Friday I saw an old guy with a Packer hat on. I said, "Go Pack!" And told him I lived in Milwaukee for 10 years. Asked him where he was from and he said, "Eagle River." I screamed a little and said that's where my son-in-law is from. Asked him if he knew the Potrykus family. He said, "Sure, Doc's my dentist." Doc is Todd's older brother Neil. Eagle River is a small community, and the world is a small place.

Are you in mourning about the Favre retirement?

All of Mississippi is, as well as Wisconsin. I think the Kiln is going to have a memorial service. :)

And how about your brother Joe....he's had a 'crush' on Favre FOREVER...keeps trying to get me to see him as 'a handsome man'. Gad!!! He may be a great QB, but good looking? Really though Joe is happy he is going out with class and on top of the game.

Don't fret about the elliptical, we are small, but we have a SEARS.

Incredible small world.

oh, and can you tell Q&C that "aunt" cindy is coming and they are going to have to sleep all night!

Lucky you--you'll be in a different room and won't even know Q woke me up in the middle of the night (if she does). Sometimes she sleeps all night.
