Endeavour Comes Home Today

The Space Shuttle Endeavour comes home today. Weather doesn't look great. Kind of cloudy and it is supposed to rain. Waiting for the Giant's football game. Just kind of taking it easy.
Hope all had a wonderful holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving

Well it is finally turkey day. The pies are in the oven. I am making a second pot of coffee with breakfast. Trying hard not to get things done to early. Miss Princess just wanted to go out and check out the neighborhood. We are experiencing some more chilly weather. Saw that it looks like a nice day in NY for the parade. Will watch some on tv. Always wanted to see it in person. Maybe some day!!! Well Happy Thanksgiving to all. I love you all.

It is still nippy here. We are getting our driveway sealed today. It is good for the people doing the job. Did not get sick from my flu shot. That's a good thing. Going to get on treadmill today as we can't go to the gym. Hope for warmer weather and maybe I will feel like doing something. For those who read this, it will get more exciting when weather gets warmer. lol

I Spelled Endeavour wrong

I am sorry I spelled the shuttle's name last night. The correct spelling is ENDEAVOUR>
It was still AWESOME> I just have just returned from shopping at Wally World. YOU CAN SAVE A LOT OF MONEY SHOPPING THERE (You just need a lot of patience) Of course it is pretty nuts shopping on Saturday at noon. Oh well, it is over now!!! Time for a well deserved BUD LIGHT LIME. LOL

We just watched the shuttle go up from our back yard. It is so cool to see how the sky brightens and then you see it. It is awesome......

Another Lovely Day in Paradise

I know I sound like a broken record but it was another beautiful day in paradise. We went down to Lakeview Park and helped Joe put up his satellite dish. Talked to Flo, she was in Virginia and hoped to be back in Pa. tonight (unless they hit bad weather). We are watching the astronauts getting ready for the launch. We can see it from our back yard. It is really a spectacular sight. With the NASA channel, you feel like you are right there in the capsule. This is quite an age we live in!!! It should be nice with the moon almost full and the launch. Can't wait til 7:55 PM. More tomorrow!!

Hump Day

It is Wednesday and a fact I had forgotten since I have been retired is that it is "Hump Day". I saw it on "Who wants to be a Millionaire" Well we both feel much better today. It is cloudy and looks like rain. Got some errands to run. Grammy Flo and Birddog are leaving for their holidays in the cold gray north. We will miss geocaching with them until January. Then it will be gang busters.

Robbie and Elaine are coming to Florida for a visit. We will try and make contact and have lunch. Still waiting for the New Years Disney Cruise!! Got to go and get showered and ready for the day.

Update from Chobee

Feeling better. Headache is almost gone. Went to get my yearly mammogram {How Fun} and a Bone Density test. It's pretty inconvenient getting older. I think I will stop growing up and get younger from here on. lol Talked to Teri and ordered some books for Ammanda. She deserved a little gift for doing so well at the Dome in Syracuse in her COLOR GUARD. She will be doing WINTER GUARD. She (Ammanda) brought her Spanish grade up. Well enough for now. Watching House!! More Okeedokee from Okeechobee.

Okeedokee from Okeechobee

Still have a headachey feeling but I think I will survive, Did some housey stuff this morning and feel okay. Not too much happening, Don is still under the weather and if he doesn't feel a lot better I'm going to make him go to the doctor tomorrow. Bye for now

Hapless History

I know that I should think highly of what occurred in yesterday's election but I do not feel at all good about it. I have seen many historic events happen in my lifetime and usually they are exciting and amazing but this one I don't know about it. But life goes on and its only 4 years. lol For all who read my ramblings, thanks for understanding. Well time for a walk on the dike and listening to my ipod and getting beyond yesterday.

Maybe it is that the Giants won the Super Bowl and I wanted Sarah to be our next VP. Maybe in 12 ,she'll be a part of history I can be happy about. Who knows!!!

November 1st

It is a funny day here. For the most part, the day has been cloudy and gray. It rained for a little while but not freezing like some areas so I guess I don't have much to complain about. We didn't do much today but that's ok. Nothing to tell so will go take a nap. Need to take lessons from Miss Oreo!!!!
