End of the month blues.

I was just bitching the other day about flea meds, heartworms & end of the month bills.

Now it is time to do it again. Oh well, time flies when you are having fun, right?

Spent the morning at wally world and the afternoon putting it away.

Little Sister

This is the cutest little pup and looks just like Little Sister and sounds like Little Sister too. When you click on more, the little dog barks and so does Little Sister.

It doesn't take much to entertain me!

Just another hot day

We got tee shirts from VA Joe today. He send one to Guyk for doing the interview and he was kind enough to send one to me. They are very nice.

It still is a hot August day. Will August never end? This week-end is labor day, finally.

Guyk goes to see doctor again tomorrow.

We had fried catfish for lunch today. It was delicious as usual.

Today's exercise was weed-eater exercise. I spent about 4 hours in the yard. I feel like it too. Tired. But it was good work and the yard looks nice. Guyk mowed yesterday so I had to weed-eat or feel guilty all day about not doing it.

It was a good day.

A peaceful exercise

I have so much peace while I am on the tread mill. I try to place myself on the lake in Waurika, Ok. The other day on the news they said at an exercise salon a man was making so much noise on his exercise bike that others in the salon could not exercise. They told him to shut up but he continued. The teacher would not do anything. They said he was making grunting sounds and saying,"you go girl". One of the exercisers picked up the man and his bike and threw them again the wall.

Well, so much for that exercise session. There would be no peace found there but lots to talk about. I have never been to a public gym but grunting and bike throwing were not in my thoughts when I thought about going to a gym.

I guess I have just led a sheltered life.

It rained, finally.

It rained yesterday. It is suppose to rain again this week-end. We got about one-half inch.

If you haven't been over to Maeve's bedroom, go look. Boy is she going to be surprised when she gets home.

A Red Rose

I was leisurely reading down my blog role when I clicked on Guyk's blog. I was so surprised to see this beautiful rose. What a wonderful gift and his words of love will last forever. We shared some very passionate love later that day. It was a good day. Thank you, darling. I love you.

This hibiscus is so pretty. Guyk bought them Tuesday and we planted them yesterday morning.

It was actually cool when I stepped out the back door with the pups this morning. It felt so good not to be blasted by hot air.

Guyk got his eye appointment done so we are done with doctors for this week.

Maybe the weather man didn't lie and it will rain this week-end as promised.

Same old thing, hot and hotter

We got past Guyk's dermatology appointment with flying colors. He has an appointment for this time next year.

We got his x-rays done today. His eye appointment is tomorrow.

Guyk bought 3 Hibiscus plants yesterday. We got them planted this morning.

The weather man is teasing us with news that it may rain this week-end. Hope so. Hot again today.

Guyk's interview posted by VA Joe

Guyk was interviewed by VA JOE and the interview was posted on 8-20-07. He is very proud of this. He made me a copy of it.

We got his blood test today but the doctor failed to request an A1C which is a status report of his diabetes. He has an appointment coming up next week so hopefully we will get that fixed. We didn't get the x-rays done today but we have an appointment for tomorrow. Eventually we will get this new doctor thing broke in.

I am so ready for fall weather.

Monday, August 20, 2007

And the heat goes on.

It is suppose to be 95 degrees today but it feels like 105.

We didn't get the blood test done. The lab was short of help and running way behind. We are going to get it done in the morning before he has his x-rays.

We did get Little Sister's stitches out.

Guyk mowed the lawn and I did the weed eating. We are both very tired. This heat just does you under.

Sunday, August 19, 2007


I will be so glad to see summer end. It has been so hot and dry. I know those in Texas would like to have some of our dry.

I liked Guyk's Sunday school lesson. It was funny as usual. I don't know how he comes up with all that stuff.

I was a good girl today. I did my weights and treadmill today.

Tomorrow Guyk goes for blood test and Little Sister gets her stitches out.

The Sunday paper already has Christmas items for sale and it is not even Halloween yet.

Hot and Dry

My body can tell I started my exercise program again. I ache all over more than anywhere else. It feels good to get back to the treadmill.

We drug out all the water hoses again today. We have had no rain for awhile. We have put all these plants and grass in the yard. You can't just let it die.

We are watching this big bad storm Dean along with everyone else. I'd be happy with just some rain. Texas has had its share.

I hope everyone has a good week-end.

Hedges Finished

We finished the hedges today. It looks really nice. It was hot outside even though we did it this morning.

Back to the old grind in the morning. Weights for upper body and treadmill. Yesterday we put in cement squares at the back porch. I handed Guyk the squares from the truck. He said they were not heavy. But my arms were sore this morning.

Out of shape already. We have been working in the yard for a week or so and the exercise program has gone by the wayside. But I only have so much energy. And we have been working hard in the yard so it was a surprise that my arms were sore. Getting old is a bitch but as long as I have that Guyk I have good company and life is good.

Little Sister rounded up the lizard today while I was in the shower. She barked and barked at it until Guyk finally had to get up and go see what she was barking at. He got hold of the lizard and put him outside. He was alive but just barely.

Since Barack Obama was a Muslim as a child, how can he expect to meet other Muslim leaders as the president of the US, when according to the Koran, once a Muslim, always a Muslim. Since he has rejected the Muslim religion, the Koran directs other Muslims to take his life.

Acronyms & Virtual sex

Guyk found a web site of acronyms for me. I keep going to him and asking him what does this mean. The list goes on and on and on.

Our local TV channel wanted to know if you flirted on line were you being unfaithful to your spouse? They agreed among themselves that you would be. They stated that some people spend so much time on line with a virtual partner that their real live partner goes by the wayside.

The real live partner must not do much back rubbing, hand holding or any of those other thousand little things that my real partner does for me.

It will be a sad day when all there is available is a virtual partner. But thanks to my real life partner, I have that option because I have learned how to write on my blog.

Monday, August 13, 2007


We spent all morning putting in the hedges. We are both very tired but the shrubs look so nice.

We had a good day.

Sunday, August 12, 2007

Planting shurbs

We started to build a bed today to put shrubs in. Guyk has a picture on his blog of our handy work. We got 3 1/2 inches of rain this afternoon so I don't have to water in the morning. We are getting up early in the morning to finish this project.

Little Sister gets her stitches out Tuesday. The way she runs around you would not know she has stitches.

Life is great

Guyk was interviewed by the Military Bloggers . He was very pleased to be asked and I was impressed.

Guyk also wrote a fantastic article called the Politician Game of 5 favorite and 5 least favorite American politicians. I requested a copy from him. It is a great article and one well worth reading, if you can find the time. If you don't have the time, take the time, the article is well worth the effort.

I went shopping yesterday and bought Guyk a bible so that he can continue his bible stories on Sundays. We did not have a bible in the house.

I also bought myself a new dictionary. I am having to think now and I just love it.

Guyk bought me flowers today for the back yard. I put them in the flower bed. He took pictures and put them on his blog while I planted the flowers. We had nothing in that space and the pretty blue flowers were just a fit.

My trials & tribulations of doctors & vets

The exercise of the day was weed-eating in this sauna called Florida living. I was doing great until I broke the weed-eater. Guyk must buy a new one. He is in charge of buying all high-tech equipment!

Since I am no longer working outside the home, I don't have contact with other women except on this blog. I was surprised at the number of women who have the same problem I do when it comes to getting their old man to the doctor. Guyk has stated several times I was directly responsible for saving his life because I insisted he go to VA after he retired from the Air Force. He only had high blood pressure at first, but then on one of his appointments, they found he had diabetes. He could have gone into a coma and I would have never known what happened until it was to late.

HAMMER, being the typical male and having the same thought pattern as Guyk, said that he thought that doctors learned their craft from the Spanish inquisition.

Guyk stated he did not care that they learned their craft at the Spanish inquisition as long as they were not late for his appointment!

Debbie said if it was not for good women like us where would our men be.

Rockync said she agreed that spouses were terrible when it comes to going to the doctor.

Chevy Rose stated her old man invented Grouchiness.

Pamibe set up the appointment for her old man to have his colonscope. She said he allowed drinking that awful stuff before hand was the worst part.

Doyle who I thought was a male, until yesterday, when Guyk and I were working in the yard and we were discussing what Doyle had said about a chew toy for Little Sister. Doyle had no comment on her old man but she did have a good idea for using a rope with knots as a chew toy.

So now that Little Sister is fixed and doing so well and Guyk made it through his new doctor's appointment, I can relax because the new doctor is a female and Guyk likes her.

Since we still have blood tests, x-rays and colonscope to do yet, we will continue this saga at a later time.

Sorry, Rocky

On August 7, in the comment section, Rocky made a joke about being fixed (Little Sister, the poodle, was going to the vet) and I proceeded to bitch about all the bad things that being fixed had done to me.

I wanted to apologize to Rocky because I failed to tell the whole story. I had endometriosis and at the time (1969) a hysterectomy was the only answer.

We were stationed in Great Falls, Montana. We lived in base housing which consisted of a long row of townhomes. These townhomes were connected to each other. The walls were thin. Guyk and I could not have sex because it just hurt me to much. Well, after I got fixed and got well from the surgery, we were like newly weds. Guyk would come home for lunch. The women and children sat on their front porches a lot.

When Guyk would come home at lunch time, the women would all laugh and joke and tell him they knew why he was home and where he was going when he came into the house. Guyk and I swore they all gathered in the attached townhome and listened through the wall. We didn't mind really. We were having a good time.

So Rocky, I left you another message in the August 7 comment section.

That man of mine!!!

Little Sister is running around just like she always did, jumping on beds and into laps. She would chase the ball or her tee shirt that is in knots if she could get somebody to throw them. So she carries around the tee shirt and the ball and plays by herself. I am so glad she is as good as new. She gets her stitches out next week.

I had to take Guyk to a new doctor yesterday. I had switched doctors so he decided to go to the same one as me. Guyk hates to go to the doctor. He went but kicking and screaming the whole way. The doctor was late seeing him. I thought Guyk was going to have a stroke, he was so mad that he had to wait.

I can see why married men live longer, if they have wives that care about them, because if Guyk were single, he would never go to the doctor until the ambulance took him there. He maxed out on the grouch scale yesterday.

Now we just have to go back for blood tests, x-rays, and colonoscope.!!!!!

I intend to keep him around for as long as I can no matter how grouchy he gets.

Terrorist and Hostage

Guyk put a link on his blog of a terrorist and hostage game. He is having a ball with it. A fellow blogger sent it to him.

I went through the house this morning looking for Little Sister to see what she was into since she can't have any breakfast. I have looked in all the rooms and can't find her and then then there she is behind me!

I will be glad when she gets home from vet and we do not have to go that way again soon. My only consolation is that I will be spared the mess of an animal in heat. We have reframed from visiting a friend's home in Lakeland because they have a male dog and we did not know when Little Sister would be in heat. Now we will be able to go and take Little Sister to show her off. We do not take Sassie because it is to hot and Sassie can't get her breath. Their male dog is just a 2 year old and he is all over Sassie, just like Little Sister.

Little Sister to vet tomorrow

We took Little Sister to the vet today. They are going to spay her tomorrow. She is due to come into heat soon. I don't want to deal with the heat thing. Messy. Plus sometimes there are dogs running loose and we don't have a fence. I sure don't want a male dog hanging around.

She doesn't have to spend the night. We take her in at 8am and suppose to have her back home by 6pm. The worst part will be when she finds out she can't have any breakfast.

They are going to put a microchip in her while she is out too. The family camps on military bases want your pet with a microchip.

It will be a long day for me but will be glad when I get her back home.

This picture is the epitome of how I feel about housekeeping. You do the dishes, they get dirty again, sweep the floor, it gets dirty again. Make the bed, have to unmake it to go to bed, and so on...........

Panic attack

This morning I was trying to find something to do because I knew that Guyk wanted to sleep in. We have to close the bedroom door so the pups can't jump on the bed and wake him up. I have to do this as soon as me and the pups get up.

So I decided to write on my blog. First windows would not come up because it had some problems. Gateway used it's go back program to find a place where there were no problems. That got done. Then I had no server. We had just had roadrunner install a router so my laptop would work faster. I couldn't believe I had no internet.
Panic sat in. I was so happy being a blogger and now it was gone. My whole day is ruined. Am I addicted already? Well, I guess so. Doesn't matter. Wake up Guyk.

He was real sweet about getting up. It took him less than one minute to fix the problem. Boy am I glad he is around and knows how to fix this sucker.

I know windows is punishing me because I closed two tabs at the same time yesterday. Well, no more of that. If windows says don't do that, then by golly don't do that.

Must not fuck with windows or windows will get you.

Since this morning it has been a great day and I have learned still one more way to do something on this computer. Guyk went to pick up his guns that he had to wait 3 days for and I had a good work-out program with weights and treadmill.

Tomorrow's exercise program is to put in 180 centipede plugs in the lawn. I can't wait. But if it works right, our lawn will look much better.

The sun was shining brightly

It was a glorious day. The sun was shinning. It has been raining for several days. I can remember not to long ago, I was bitching because we had had no rain. I felt like the ugly step-sister because it was raining all around us but not on us. When it finally decided to rain, it rained and rained.

I was a good girl today. I did my upper body exercises and my treadmill. We got Advantage on the pups.

The plan is to write on my blog and then go do my weed-eating. Guyk mowed the lawn yesterday morning. The weed-eating is my job. Then in the morning I will be free to do my exercise program.

Guyk had a long phone call from Catfish today. He is going to the blog meet in Helen. We are glad we are going to see Catfish and his wife again. They have been good friends.

It will be fun to see all the bloggers again that we have met and the ones we have not met yet.

Be glad you can piss and moan.

I hate the end of the month, first of the month. Make out bills. Do flea meds on pups. Heart guard on pups. This past month has been especially hectic with new pup.

We have changed doctors. Guyk has appointment with new doc next week. I had to search records on when all important stuff got done. I think I have about got it all together.

The pup goes to vet on Monday. We are not going to breed so want to talk about spaying for pup.

It has rained all day and is still raining. Flea meds will have to wait until tomorrow when maybe the sun will shine. I use Advantage and it is a topical.

I made Guyk a meat loaf with fresh garlic, bell peppers and lots of jalapenos. It became a spicy meatloaf.

Guyk is taking a nap. Must get back to treadmill and start this month right.

Guyk had cable people hook up laptop so that now it is fast. We thought about another sit on desk computer, but this is much cheaper.

I must be thankful I have so little to complain about. Thanks for dropping by.
