A Kind Word...
Pucker Up!

A Salute...

...to all the soldiers and their families everywhere, male or female, away from home and at home.  I don't know how the families do it with a loved one away from home, missing all the fun times and even the bad times, but missing it all the same. God Bless You All!

I was so glad when I saw that Kristi (she owns Hanna Stamps! - and she is such a sweetie) came out with a soldier stamp (brand new for February) and he is actually named after my friend Vicki's son Jon...so this is GI Jon Riley. He is so cute isn't he?  But its funny if you look at some of the other Hanna DT girls, they colored him like he was more dressed...oops!

I am gonna make a super quick post, I had so much fun today too, I hate to ruin the day with a headache.  I met Rhonda for a coffee and a danish, and we sat outside in the beautiful weather to visit cause we have not seen each other forever, and we kept laughing cause a man parked his motorcyle near the front door, but of course people couldn't see the bike until they started to turn into the spot and they had to back up, or swerve back straight to drive, there must have been 20 people do it, and the biker had no idea this was happening cause he was on the other side, good thing cause it's a wonder it didn't get hit.  He sat there and read his paper, with his smokes. People would have this look on their face, like oh cool, a close spot and then oh crap, theirs a bike there. Didn't take much to amuse us.

So another stinkin' headache, I really need to go see a doc, it is like my teeth even hurt, who knows maybe its my wisdom teeth, would they make me get headaches? It seems to just be the same time at night too.  All I know is I am getting sick of them, and now this stupid Doctor's office keeps calling us trying to fax us, it happens every month and every month I call and say, this is not a fax line stop calling, I called earlier and talked to a lady in the office, and she said there are so many people there she would not know who was sending the fax...hmmm...guess its too much to ask around in the office who just sent a fax eh? So she said she removed the number.  So now their office is closed, and I have gotten 3 phone calls in the last 10 minutes trying to fax us, I called and got the answering service, and who knows if that did any good.  I told her the same thing, this is not a fax, and we are not even patients at that office. Believe me they will be getting a call in the morning, and I will wait till they find out who keeps trying to fax to us...ridiculous! If it wasn't long distance, I would hook up my fax and try faxing their regular number and see how they like it.

Ok, enough of my ranting, I gotta go sit in the dark.

Have a great Thursday, and thanks so much for stopping in, I really appreciate it.

Hugs, Di
