6th Grade Version of History

From my friend Turtle Dave in Calgary, Alberta.

Dave has an interesting blog and these are funny. Drop over and take a look.

I may try for an early bedtime. I want to make sure all is in order (or as much in order as it ever gets) around here so the girls and I will be ready to leave for San Francisco early Sunday. I don't want to miss another special occasion by being unprepared.

Plus my eyes have been bothering me; probably from the sweat dripping into them on its way to the keyboard. Even with the cooler it's hot. At least now it's bearable.

Girls still playing out front (in and out) and Elcie is sprawled on the couch. Cats everywhere. Our fuzzball longhair kitty has disappeared. She was a stray and I'm hoping she found her way home. Cats sometimes do that. She was sick when she arrived and healthy when she left so maybe she'll do okay. Nice little kitty.

I'll talk to you tomorrow probably. Thanks to all for the comments in case there's someone I missed.

And thanks for all the suggestions on the goodie bags. Susie, thanks for the offer to send your collection of miniature shampoos or whatever. Yes and greatly appreciated. If they don't qualify for the prison, A Woman's Place here can certainly use them. They do wonderful work with battered women and their families. They provide legal aid, emergency shelter, and many other things. Too many women and kids; not enough shelters. It's a sad commentary.

Take care everybody.

That may well be why your eyes are acting up - the sweat. I worked outside for years and sweat would run in my eyes in the summer, make them burn and make everything blurry - I don't miss that part of working. Hope your Sunday with the Giants is much cooler. ec

I miss my Giants, and 49ers and Warriors!
That's about it though. Hope you had a fun time!

Hi Ann,

Thanks for the link, that was funny post!

I hope all is well at your end, and your staying as cool as possible. It's hot here as well and the wheather man promises it'll get hotter by this weekend!

I hope your trip goes well, and your getting out of our hot valley none too soon--I wish we could get away as well!

Take care and have a safe trip.

ohh sorry about the missing cat, i hope she made it back home too.
it is hotter than stink up here too and not at all bearable today. we were alllll melting. tomorrow is supposed to be worse. we have been breaking records every day. it sucks.
no aircon here, just a really nice cool basement.
take care and drink lots of water.

Gina said...

Well, Sunday should hopefully be a nice break from all the heat, with the air conditioned bus and the naturally air conditioned stadium. I have seen the temps in SF and of course been very jealous of their seventies.

PI said...

Ann: have a great break and come back safely.

Tammy said...

I don't have much to say about your post today, but decided to practice what I preach and if I visit someone's blog, I'm gonna at least say Hi!!
so Hi Granny...hope you have a great day!!!

Merle said...

Hi Ann ~~ I hope you have a wonderful trip and that you all enjoy it.
See you when you get back. Love, Merle.

Have not been in here for a while and boy have l missed out- you are a busy lady for sure.
May l add you to my links list so that l can check by more often?
I have my oldest son sprawled out on the couch behind me here- mention work and he falls asleep! :)

I love that you do these things - and from your own home, too. It just cements my opinion of what a kind and generous soul you are, on top of looking after everyone in your family and all the cats!

Just thought you should have a little back pat to yourself.
