Edf & Luann were the hosts for the party a couple days ago. These are the only pictures I can get to load on Blogger.
Vernon (Sherry's Bro.) & Janet his wife and my Girl, SHERRY!!!
Today's stuff!!

Well this is Sunday night as I prepare this entry. I cannot believe the trouble we are having with this system. Sherry spent awhile on the phone with Verizon today. It did improve our connection, but the problem we were having came back.

You are going along reading blogs and all a of a sudden the system starts stacking windows on top of windows of the Blog you are attempting to read. Sometimes I can call up ‘System manager’ and eliminate it , but other times I have to just shut the system down with the off button. It is sorta funny I was making a comment on my friend Debbie’s Blog, I told her Sherry (across the kitchen table) was having trouble, but fortunately I was not. As soon as I posted the comment it attacked this system. So we both are in the same boat.
I quickly copied my books (two) at their latest point, so if the worst happened, I would at least have the latest of ‘S’gar’ and ‘Tobies Tales’. I have done very little writing since being home. I am a one track minded guy. If I have other things to do, the lesser things (at the time) take a back seat.
Of course we came home to help my buddy Sonny, if we could. He has been in the hospital the whole time we have been home, except for a few days in rehab. His outlook is not good. He is not fully with us anymore, and it has been mentioned that he may be a ‘Sundowner’. ANOTHER STINKING BUZZWORD. Basically it means his sun is going down, but he is still alive. In other words the beginning of Dementia or Alzheimer’s. He asked me if I had come by Allen’s on the way over (Allen has been dead 25 years). He was also calling for his Mom who has been dead 50 years. I don’t think we can help Sonny. (But I can Cry).
I will always remember Sonny the way he was. He was a man.
Well I did not mean to be on the down side, but at this time it is hard to be otherwise. I tried to upload pictures last night so many times I got tired. I may try again tonight.
Shirl bought 50 bales of pine needles, I spread 47 of them after church today.

Thanks for the update on Sonny, I wish it was better news. I'll keep you all in my prayers. I see Shirl is trying her best to keep you busy. Oh what we sisters have to do to keep our little brothers out of trouble...ha. Take care, Sheila

Debbie said...

I'm so sorry to hear this latest news about Sonny. Yeah, it's hard to be upbeat when someone you love is suffering. All of you are in my prayers.

Everyone looks great in the pictures. Thanks for sharing as many as you could with us.

I'm gonna quit bragging about being able to leave comments because it always comes back to bite me. Last night I was able to leave one more comment on another blog after I commented on yours before Explorer loaded pape after page again. It's frustrating to have to shut it off on my power switch and start all over again. We aren't the only ones having problems I've seen others who say their computers are doing the same as ours. A lot of folks think it's AOL but I'm not with AOL. Heck, I don't know what it is. I wish someone could tell us how to fix it cause I'm getting tired of fighting it, hahaha.


Paula said...

I was going to say true to all the questions but you answered it at the bottom. He he for once I was right. Don't feel bad about being on the down side about Sonny. It is so hard to see our friends not the way they once were. Someone told me to use Firefox instead of internet explorer so I downloaded it and now I don't know what to do with it. lol

Lindie said...

My computer has been doing that too, stacking copy over copy of the same blog, or at least it was doing it over the weekend. Seems to have stopped now.

Debbie said...

Hey Jack, I forgot to ask you what are the pine needles for? Are they a type of mulch? I hate the darn things, lol. Our neighbors pine needles alway clogged our gutters and our 2 pine trees by the driveway always made the driveway really slick when the needles fell. The ice storm took care of a lot of that problem, one of ours almost looks like a telephone pole now and the neighbors pine tree that was closest to our house has been cut down after its large limbs broke off hitting our house and doing some damage. We always thought we liked pine trees until we moved here and have to deal with the mess they make, haha.


Helen said...

I am glad that you mentioned the stacking windows. My computer has been doing that for several days. I have run all kinds of spyware only to not come up with a single thing. I Even restored my computer to two weeks ago. I have been wondering if anyone else is having that problem. I believe it is something in blogger itself that is causing it. Since it doen't do that on other sites.
I am so sorry that your friend Sonny is still doing downhill. I am sure that you have already shed a lot of tears.

I commented last night but don't know where it
went. I told about us putting the Gazebo together and having to change, read, change and
keep reading instruction that didn't make sense, but you got it up. Tell Debbie the pine needles are mulch around the plants. The oak
leaves cloggs our gutters.

We sure had a good time at Ed's.

If you read my blog today you weill know, how my day was yesterday. No strength left when I tried to cancel aol so I have aol. I have had the same with the stacking thing but not for a while. I am sorry to hear about Sonny. Take comfort if you can that it is "us" that is doing the crying because he won't remember. He has suffered enough so I guess that is a blessing.

Terri said...
