In Fairport, NY there were a group of 5 girls who perished in a horrific car accident. These girls were cheerleaders who were all beautiful, popular and good kids. One of them was Bud's ice cream girl (she worked at the local ice cream shop). This has been all over the local and national news, and it is very tragic.
Three weeks ago there was another accident that took the lives of 3 high school kids. This one just as tragic has not received 1/3 of the publicity that these ladies got. It makes me so angry that the class president and his girlfriend got very little time and the 5 cheerleaders get national attention.

No matter, my thoughts and prayers go out to the families.

enjoy life!

Fun Shoe Friday (Vacation edition)

Ok Ok Ok

I know that is nothing exciting about golf shoes, but starting at 3:30 today I will be on a working vacation. I will not post unless I have time. The fact that I have to report at 5:30 am every day, and stay until 6:00 at night does not leave me much time for anything else. So..... All I have to offer are golf shoes.

enjoy life

Gramma v. Dr. Who wins???

The Hubs g-ma is in the hospital apparently last Friday while at an event for one of her 19 grandchildren she slumped over in her chair and literally passed out and stopped breathing. She was rushed top the hospital and was revived. As of now all is right with the world. However; while the doctor was performing tests on her she was feisty. She did not answer all of the questions honestly and the Dr. was getting politely irritated. Nothing compares to a mad Gma though.
Here is the example.

Dr.: Mrs. G-ma have you been light headed at all in the past?
Gma: Oh no. I have been feeling just fine. (all answers have a snide tone)
Dr.: When you get up in the morning what do you do?
Gma: What do ya mean? I get up in the morning. I am 81 years old, any morning I get up is good. I go to the bathroom. That is what I do.
Dr.: Mrs. Gma so, you get up use the facilities and then what?
Gma: I eat.
Dr.: What do you eat?
Gma: What ever I feel like.
Dr.: (looking at me) is she always this feisty?
Me: Yup!
Gma: I am sitting here talk to me. I can hear you. I am not deaf. (no she is not, she has all of her faculties)
Dr.: Yes Mrs. Gma. So when you get up in the mornings you feel good.
Gma: I did not say I feel good. I said I feel just fine. Sometimes I feel dizzy.
Dr.: So you feel dizzy in the mornings I thought you did not have any dizziness in the mornings.
Gma: No, I said I was not light headed in the mornings. I am dizzy in the mornings.
Dr.: Ok Ok Ok, So you are dizzy in the mornings.
Gma: (interrupting) Yes, I already said that.
Dr.: How long are you dizzy.
Gma: (blank stare)
Dr: Are you dizzy for a few minutes or all day.
Gma: Well if it were all day I would have been here sooner.
Dr: Yes, Mrs. Gma.
Gma: I don't like you. You ask too many questions.
Me: Gma he has to find out why you fell over. Just answer him, or he won't go away.
Gma: Well why didn't you say so. (looking at Dr.) Well lets go, ask your questions.

This is where we proceed to find out the she has been having "dizzy spells" for a few weeks.
She did not tell anyone because "it's no big deal"
So she is still in the hospital pissed a hell, and whats more they told her she can not drive anymore. Now, she is able to drive and believe it or not I would get in to a car with her. She is a good driver. It's just the passing out thing that is bothersome.
Anyways, I am glad I am not a Dr. I would not want to be on her bad side.

enjoy life!

Shoot out?? No Problem!

So we are still in hockey mode. We had a game last night and I have been telling Bud to stay out of the goal for what seems like forever. He likes being in the goal, but he is not a goalie. Trust me! He was the goalie for one game in this summer league and the pads did not fit him. He had to be picked up by the referee every single time he went down to block a shot. It was funny to watch, but not funny for the sake of the game. Well, my tormenting finally paid off. He stayed out of the goal and in the process played the best game he has ever played in this league. Scored one regulation goal and scored the only shoot out goal for his team. He was so happy. While we were talking about this excitement I said Bud, I can't tell you how proud if you I am. He says sure you can mommy go ahead. There I be, dumbfounded. I did not know what to say. So I just went on about staying out of the goal and getting to the net to shoot. He was so happy, that he had to call my parents in New Orleans to tell them. My dad was so happy for him. You could hear him smile ear to ear in his voice. Yeah I know not easy to imagine. But he was I know it.
The hubs was upset that he missed it since he plays volleyball in a league on Tuesday nights. I told him not a big deal, because there will be more and they will be better.
I am really proud of him though.

enjoy life.

Butter Mints

Oh you sugary sweet pieces of tasty goodness. Why must you beckon me to your dish. Why must you be so small that when I grab you there are so many in my hand. And why when I start to eat you can I not stop. I just keep going and going and going and going so much so that I now have a HUGE stomach ache from eating waaayyy tooo many.
Why must I have no self control over you???
Why, I say WHY!!!!!

enjoy life!
