December, 2010

This blog is simply published to tell you that I am still around. Not too much time spent in Blogdom - mostly on Facebook.
Christmas is two days away. I plan to see Regi, Jason, Rylee!, Bullwinkle, Belle, Jamie, Bilko, Holley, BJ, Luke, Albert and Marty along with Rena and Dudley!

I know, Regi, I don't get on Blogger much. However, the kid is here. April 1, the date I predicted, I might add, was the day Rylee decided to appear. Such a cutie. She has come to visit once and will be back for an encore this weekend.
BJ and I are planning a quick mushroom trip to Michigan, so we won't see her much.

Where is the Granddaughter?

When my nephew, Steve, was small, his mom was pregnant with his baby brother. Of course, we did not know that it was a brother at that point. I asked him several times, "Where is your baby sister?" He would always answer, "He's still not coming yet!" And, sure enough, it was a he. Gool ole Jonathan(JonJon) Yoder.
Now, it's "where is the granddaughter?" I guess Regi will get it here when it is time. This time we know it's a she, but the stubborn parents won't spill the beans on the name. Ally has somehow gotten the agreement to be the first to know the name. She always gets whatever she wants. Spoiled little kid. Her mom made her that way.

If anyone is still watching NASCAR, what do you think of "Mr. Nice Guy", Carl Edwards? An intentional wreck of Brad K. at Atlanta was not very cool. Here's my idea...park him for Bristol, 100 point penalty, $50,000 fine and probation. He ruined a lot of racer's days with that boneheaded move. The NAPA car was top ten before that, but the resulting re-start began the "big one" that ruined Truex's day along with several other's. Surely, NASCAR will not just slap him on the wrist.

Yes, Dani, it has been a long while since I have blogged. Too much time on Facebook, I guess. Finally, got some snow in Darke County, Ohio! We are on a level 3 snow emergency. No one is to be on the road except emergency personnel. I left work at 4 as soon as my pizza was delivered. Mom had called and said to bring home pizza for supper.
Dudley likes to look out the window at the snow, but doesn't like to be out in it. He is getting ready to stay at Bilko and Belle's house while we go to see Fat Albert in sunny Florida in a couple weeks.
Forecast says 8-14 inches of the white stuff through tomorrow. Blowing snow will be the real problem if that happens as expected.
The grandkid is about 5 pounds by now, but still in the oven. Hurry up, Regi, let's get the show on the road. Regina was here last weekend while Jason was in Ireland. Had a great time with Bullwinkle, Bilko and Dudley all in the same house.

Blogging has not been on the agenda recently. However, I did have a notable Saturday. We went to the Baker residence to visit Jason, Regi, Bullwinkle and my granddaughter, who is now making my daughter bumpy-looking.
Brent and I accompanied Jason to the American Legion for a birthday celebration of one of his parishioners. We were invited to eat, and Brent and I needed very little cajoling to accept. We had chicken, ham, green beans, macaroni salad and chocolate cake...good ole' Kentucky cookin'.
Next week is Thanksgiving already. Soon after that we will be getting ready for Christmas. And then, the countdown to Granddaughter #1!

Regi says it is time for an update. Facebook seems to be the main place to gather, so haven't blogged since July.
The Bakers went to Ireland in July, and now I hear there is a new Baker on the way! Bullwinkle stayed with us, and he is back for another stay at our house now. Bilko, his first cousin, is here, too. Dudley loves having both cousins here because they fight each other and leave him alone for the most part so he can get his beauty rest. They are all excited about getting a real cousin in March. Well, maybe not Bilko who went to the vet's office Monday to get "tutored". He misunderstood at he gets it.
Rena is off to National Quartet Convention's just me and the four dogs.
In two weeks, Rena and I fly to Myrtle Beach to work the Collingsworth table at the Gaither Concert.
Now, you're updated.
