    How has everyone else been???
    Well, my husband found out he has 2 weeks left of work and then his job ends... He does have leads on some other jobs but no benefits so we would have to pay our cobra $800 a month, isn't that just dandy. I can't believe how much they reem you for insurance these days........

  • My son always asks me if I was a hippy, lol. I was a teenager in the 70's, and ummmmm, well I was sort of a hippy but certainly not a flower child, lol!

    Best to all,

  • Well i want to be a flower child seems everything i eat goes to my hippies. So needless to say i will take the flower child. Oh wait that is what i stuck on my windows and everything i could find. Grrr i telling my age again. I think I'm going to start telling stories. You can all add in if you like.

    Once upon a time there was this magical place and the counting sheep were locked at the gate. when they gate keeper said hark who goes there they said blahh black sheep. Gate keeper said that is not the pass word. He once again replies hark who goes there next reply was blah blah serta gate keeper responds that is not the password. Gate keeper says hark who goes there and and the sheep said...... to be continued

    Spiney hugs to all >:D< >:D<
  • Jay, good morning!!! :H are you on your way to work? :? i like the idea of a Hippie thread! LOL! i think we are all old fogies now though jay!! atleast with young hearts!!! =)) i am sick as a puppy this morning but still want to say hi and get some sleep everyone!!!! :D Hugsssss, >:D< Jenny :)
  • The whole idea makes me laugh too! :))(

    Yes, Jenny, I'm up for work, the last few days have been hard so I'm not not looking forward to it! Sorry you're still not feeling good, is it still the pancreas thing? Or am I thinking the wrong person? lol I can hardly keep track of myself lately it seems!!

    We had to go to walmart last nite, it was a complete zoo!! I think because most of the kids start school today. Anyway, it was the first time I used my handicap parking placard. Good thing too, I'd have had to park in the north forty! Jeez!

    Good morning Marianne, I have some pictures from the zoo a couple weeks ago, I'm getting them ready to post, some are cute! (We have a baby giraffe!)

    Tam, all ready for the rest of your story!!
  • Can't wait to see those pics! I need a new camara, lol. Went to my favorite beach last evening to try again to walk on the beach like I used to, but not happening, sniff sniff, lol. I need a sand dune buggy wheelchair for that now! So we went to another beach across the harbor with the jetty and I sat on a rock and watched, still had fun. Took some pics but camara needs new batteries so can't post them yet.

    Sorry to hear you're not feeling well Jenny. Being sick and in pain, double whammy, no fun at all.

    >:D< to the Good Morning Hippies, LOL.

  • marianne, thank you for the extra hugs!!! >:D< you be so careful painting!!!! it can be so hard on your back and neck!!! :T i have an old kitchen i need to take the cabinets off and redo.. don't think it will ever happen though! LOL! good luck with yours!!!! =D> and let's get some pics out everyone!!! i just love looking at what you all are doing!!!! :X Jay, have a good day at work....right!!!! and i say, "sleep well all you hippies and good morning"!!!!
