MD,
Sorry to hear about your experience at the donut shop. That person was rude. I get people where I work all he time just thinking of their selves. I have bit my tongue so many times it's ready to fall off. Have a great time at the symphony. Wish I could be there. I haven't been to the symphony since my father was alive and they played some of his music.

Good morning Rose, Rindy, dreamer jP, MD of course and evryone else.

Have to go to work this morning wacko.gif Oh well I'm off tomarrow and meeting a friend for lunch.

Have a great day.

I got some bad news. Megan, my six year old niece, broke her arm yesterday. She was on the slide in their back yard. She slid down sideways and landed on her arm and broke it just above the elbow. The doctor put her arm in a splint. My mom used to be a teacher. She said that when she taught elementary school, she saw more accidents on the slides than any other playground equipment.

I thank God neither my sister or I had many medical emergencies like that. I broke my leg once when I was a toddler, but that was because my foot got caught in the spokes of the stroller when the babysitter was taking me for a walk. Also, my sister is severely allergic to insect stings, so we had to take her to the ER for that once or twice. One time I was at a block party when Cath and her family used to live in their old house. She was going to eat her dinner outside. I told her not to and she asked why. I said that there were a lot of bees out. Needless to say, she stayed indoors.

Look down the forum list to "Special Interests" and the "The Garden Gate." It's a real garden in there. Care to post a pic of the marigolds? biggrin.gif


MDF3530, that's terrible about your niece. Slides are a menace. I remember coming off the end of a big tall one and flying into gravel and getting all scraped up. Someody had waxed it -- we used to take the wax paper from our sandwiches and sit on it going down the slide. I never went on it again.

Poor little kid -- I hope she is going to be OK. That must have been very painful. You'll have to get her some really good stickers for the cast. smile.gif

Hi everyone! Just stopping in to say goodnight-

Mike I agree with Nolika rude rude rude--it makes it easy times like that I live in a low- populated place...no excuses for that..make yourself better than them and don't waste your energy with people like that.
Are you going out to dinner anywhere cool? Sorry to hear about your niece.. I broke my arm in a car wreck when I was 15 still bothers me when it gets cold out.

Hi Nolika- its good to see you. Any special plans for the weekend?

Eventide I love to garden--unfortunately our season is about done now..

Hi DR- where ever you are....Ha I know where you are wink.gif

Well everyone have a safe weekend and enjoy summer while you still can.

They put a splint on Megan's arm, not a cast.

My sister and I used to get scraped up playing at the public school playground, but nothing more serious than that. Of course, that was back when the playground was paved with asphalt. They've since torn up the old playground and most of the old equipment (only the swings and one of the rocking horses remain) and put in grass and wood chips. When they are here, I take my sister's kids to the very same playground. They get a kick out of me telling them that Grandma & Grandpa used to take Mommy and Uncle Mike there when we were their age.

I take them there for the same reason my parents took my sister and I there: it's closer (only a block from the house) than any of the parks in the area.

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is having a good morning. We got the laptops set up on wireless so I am setting on the patio catching up on the forums. This is just too cool. It is 66, no wind, and partly cloudy. A most wonderful morning. Hope everyone has a good say.

Happy Saturday everyone!

There was nothing worthwhile on TV last night, so my youngest suggested watching the Return of the King again. Man, that movie really affects me! While everyone was at the Grey Havens saying goodbye to Frodo, Bilbo and Gandalf, I had to think of our ancestors immigrating to North Amerikay. How they most likely would never see one another again. Listen to the words of Danny Boy, and you'll know what I mean.

Thanks for the tip Stormeil! I might be able to provide a pic --or two. I'm still trying to find my pace here...but you know there are so many interesting topics I'm getting lost in the threads :lol

My sentiments exactly, they can be a menace! I may be a sod for saying so but I find a part of the miracle of children is how quickly they bounce back in full spirit in such a short time.
Battlescars of the playground add character-- later in life. Happy thoughts sent to you and yours.

Yes, Keira played well in King Arthur-- I am interested in learning more about archery unfortunately I neither have time nor the means to follow this dream for the moment, but I won't give up!

Three cheers for saturday well wishers! thumbs_up.gif

Been working the night shift and writing a lot of music.

Most of it's sounding sorta like a mix between Lennon/McCartney and Pearl Jam. Kinda cool really. smile.gif

Hey there everybody! Sounds like all are doing well, except for Mike's niece...poor wee thing! Kids are pretty resilient and will heal up soon, but I am sure she was hurting bad when that happened. I have never broken anything but a toe and that hurt BAD. I can't imagine an arm or leg! OUCH!

Hey Nolika and eventide! Nice to see you in here! Eventide, I do also love your avatar!

Nolika! How are you doing?

Hey JP! Oh that is too bad if you cannot go to the concert. sounds really good. I am so sorry about the loss of all the marines in your state. I always hate to hear the loss of our soldiers. I sure wish they would send them home.

Hey Allen! so good to see you. I guess fall would be in the air for all you. We are still in our summer heat so it is hard to imagine. I hope you and yours are doing well.

Rindy! How are you? Cool there too, eh? Hubby was gone all day and now is home and wants the computer, of course. In fact, he standing over me...........the pest!

Hey to Dreamer. so glad to hear you are doing better. Been wondering you are doing.

Hey Haldur and anybody else I missed. Forgive me but I have to go as hubby is nagging me the death to get off! GRRRRRRRRR

See y'all later!

Hi Everyone: It is raining here in NW Georgia and because it is so hard my satellite system is out, so I am on the very slow dial up. I'm so glad every one is doing well. MD I'm sorry to hear about you nieces arm. But we all know kid heal up so easy and they take everything in stride she is probably enjoying having everyone sign the cast.

Did anyone see the PBS special Celtic Woman tonight? It was really good. That was the only worth while thing to watch tonight.

This is the final week before the kids go back to school. They said they are going to be glad to go back.

CR I'll take plenty of pictures when I meet SB and the others. I hope those who want to meet up at the Stone Mountain Game will be able to meet there.

Well I have to go

Hi everyone,

Mike, I'm sorry to hear about your niece. Poor thing! Give her lots of extra pampering while her arm heals.

Rindy, I'd send you some of our hot weather if I could. Trade you for some rain. Hope you've still been able to get out there and enjoy your garden. I love to just grab a cup of coffee and sit and rock out there in the afternoons, whenever possible.

(It's been a funny season this year - more days in the 90's (it seems) than in recent years with higher humidity, but with less rain. Our gardens are just holding their own, and thankful for any water I can give. We've seen lots of thunderboomers slide by, but the rain always seem to hit north of us.)

CR, I know exactly how you feel when your hubby wants the computer! Mine used to come in, sit on the couch behind me, and stare at my back. If I managed to ignore that treatment, he'd start a conversation knowing full well I can't read email, surf the web, and hold a conversation at the same time. It drives me batty! He'd just keep it up until I gave in. Finally, he got his own 'putner, so now we don't have those little games. laugh.gif

JP, I hope you will still be able to go to most of the concert! It sounds too terrific to miss. I know you've all had some scorching weather lately too, 'cause our girls have been visiting grandparents there. They've spent a lot of time in the pool, we've heard! You can stop sending that heat this way now, though. We've had enough. I think Rindy could use a bit of it, though. Take care of yourself, and go to that concert!

Gettin-Away, thinking of you!

Nolika, Wizard, Haldur, Eventide, it's really nice to see you all here too! Wizard, our Summer really didn't start until the beginning of July, and even with the warmer-than-usual days we've had, I'm not ready for Fall yet. Not quite yet.

Hello to everyone, and I hope you're all having a great weekend!

I'll be away for a couple of days now - we're off to pick up our girls! See you all soon.

Dreamer1
