This going back and forth from blog to face book and back again is wreaking havoc with my writing skills.
Mostly I now write in bullets:
* Rain is imminent for us til noon tomorrow-flooding possible. Tennessee is flooding Big-Time. Nashville is underwater. I imagine we will miss the big water, but we might get some hail. It's warm here. I'm using the A.C. as a dehumidifier.
* There was a car bombing discovered/foiled in NYC last night. Time Square. I've already contacted Joey. He stays way from Time Square. He was writing a paper Saturday night. Such dedication!
*Somewhere this is the (put number in here) anniversary of our Kent State memory and the Vietnam War.
*Oil spill from that British Petroleum rig gets bigger in the Gulf moving toward Louisiana coastal areas.
*Local kids have Prom this weekend. At Arden, a one car rollover accident was reported in today's Sunday paper.
*Our seventh grade end of the year field trip is Ogleby Park with a side stop at Cabella's. I'm not going, of course. Not that it wouldn't be fun.
*May holds several weekends. Some of them might include family visits to the shut-ins. One down: no visit. Do I sound grateful? I can run around bra-less and unwashed, drinking beer and munching on popcorn... Oh, I do that anyway... hummm.
* I found this picture of Great Grandma Freda and her brother, Uncle Stanley Straight, taken sometime in the summer of 2008, when Zoey was just born. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
*Uncle Stanley reminds me of Great Grandpa Harry (my granddad) Straight, who was much thinner - due to his Lou Gehrig's disease, as I remember.
