Tuesday, February 19, 2018 - Roy took on some work in our yard this past week. When we first built the house we planted three rose bushes in front of the concrete opening to the septic tank. They've grown large and would make accessing the opening very prickly. I cut the bushes back a good… Continue reading 02.19.18 Redoing Plumbing Pipes – How Fun!!!
Roy and I both worked for Donna Methvien at Southeastern Louisiana University's Computing department. She is retiring after 36 years of dedicated and loyal service to Southeastern Louisiana University. She graduated from Southeastern and within that same year started working there! I'm so happy I got to spend ten of those years working with her… Continue reading 01.31.18 Happy Retirement Donna Methvien
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - On Wednesday Roy and I got up early (6:30 is too early for me) and set out for Hammond/Ponchatoula to take care of a bunch of stuff. After spending five days in the hospital and a couple of days at home I was more than looking forward to getting out,… Continue reading 05.11.17 Zip A Dee Doo Dah – Zip A Dee Ay!
Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - I’m sitting in the surgical waiting room while Roy is in surgery to remove some lumps from his chest and back. I just ate a delicious meal of baked spaghetti casserole and green beans for only $3.20. Food at North Oaks Hospital is always very flavorful and plentiful. They took… Continue reading 06.19.14 Frankenstein staples, Raising Canes and Godzilla!
I'm in the middle of reading "Behind the Mask" by Elizabeth Michaels. It's very long, intriguing, well written and was FREE on BookBub. They only offer a book Free for a few days so it probably isn't free any longer. I'd highly recommend it if you're a reader like me who loves being able to… Continue reading 033.31.14 San Diego, TX we’ve arrived!
Wednesday started off fasting for blood work. Mine! After the nice lady draining me of blood and giving me the obligatory cotton and bandage I was done with that for a while. We told many of our church friends goodbye on Sunday and today was our good-bye day for family and some friends. We went… Continue reading 01.09.14 You can go home again! and leave again!
We've been at Abita Springs RV Park since this past Monday. It's very nice with very tall pine trees. It is mostly Class A motor homes here which is odd because it's usually about half and half Class A and Fifth wheelers. Christmas decorations are on and around the RVs. Our RV is decorated for… Continue reading 12.13.13 Touring the Abita Springs Brewery and other recent stuff!
We watched the movie Fargo last night which seems to be a spoof of the way people in Minnesota talk. I wouldn't recommend anyone watching it since there's very graphic sex, lots of murders and filthy language. If you've seen it I want you to know it's an exaggeration of how they talk but basically that… Continue reading 06.02.13 Parade of boats!
Our son Chip and his daughter Madisyn had a photography session in early May on the campus of our old workplace, Southeastern Louisiana University. This was my Mother's Day present and we just received the CD with the photos. Below are the wonderful pictures of these folks who are so dear to us! What a blessing… Continue reading 06.02.13 Mother’s Day present – a true blessing!
Friday was my last day at work at Southeastern Louisiana University where I've worked for almost 15 years. I actually started working there 17 years ago but Roy and I took a two-year leave from full time work to test the waters on flipping houses. We did quite well and then selling the houses became extremely difficult… Continue reading 04.27.13 Saying goodbye to Southeastern Louisiana University ~~ GO LIONS!
