Wow! 2009! How am I going to get used to writing 2009 when it hardly seems like 2008 was around that long? Of course, since parts of 2008 were very difficult, I am kinda glad to see it go. I am hoping that 2009 is full of blessings for all of us.

Unfortunately for our wallet, the ER we took him to did not have a surgical unit so they had to transport him by ambulance to another hospital. Fortunately for us, it was a wonderful hospital. He received excellent care there. We were a little taken aback, however, when they told us that his surgeon was Dr. Dye. We didn't know at the time how it was spelled. We just knew how it sounded. He proved to be excellent.
Stephen is quite sore, but feeling much better. His surgery was done laproscopically which will leave him with hardly any scarring and he will never have appenicitis ever again.
Stephen was in the hospital from Wednesday to Saturday. I came home exhausted. In fact, I was so pooped that I didn't get all my groceries put away last night which included the big old chicken that I was planning to turn into chicken and dumplin's tonight. Guess I will be heading back to the store . . .

Do you remember baking sugar cookies with your Mom for the school Halloween party? Well, not me. We had some pretty awesome costumes, though. When I was in elementary, we got to go to school dressed up and had some fun parties. We also had a school-wide parade. Those were the good old days!

Update: My sister has talked to a firefighter in Clute and has been assured that her apartment is fine, but lacks power. She can stay with me and my cool air conditioning until they restore the power and other services. In the meantime, we are having nice "sister time".

Oh, don't worry. He's wearing a hat for the picture. When he rides, he uses his full helmet. He's not only good looking - he's smart, too!

My neighbor's son ended up rescuing me. When we loaded it in truck, I discovered the problem with the leg. You'll never believe it . . .
. . . it was just missing one of its wheels!!
I was already aware that it was also missing the hardware and mirror, but for $10 you just can't be that picky!!!

I found the cool glasses on my trip to Arkansas last month. They are in pretty good shape considering how old they are. I wonder about the woman who used to wear them. What was she like? Did she have a family? Perhaps she wore these glasses to work or maybe was she a homemaker. What I do know is that she used to live in Milan, Tennessee. Somehow, the glasses ended up in a cute little antique shop in Conway, Arkansas and then in my hot little hands.
