I'll get you my pretty -

and your little dog, too! - then I'll bake you some yummy cookies. LOL!

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!

Dodged a nasty bullet

We dodged a bullet this time. Please pray for those caught in Ike's path. This storm is ferocious. The worst part of it is the huge storm surge. My sister's home is right in its path. She's here with me, so she's safe. She drove down a couple of days ago with both of her fur babies. It is a very anxious night for us.

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".

I don't like Ike

. . . and he certainly is not welcome. He has made me a bit apprehensive since I live in the center of the cone of uncertainty. Of course, I don't wish this storm on anyone else, but I don't want to deal with it. Doesn't he know that I have way too much to do and have too much on my mind already to be concerned about where he plans to go? I have just been given a huge deadline of October 1 to come up with 7 to 10 product sketches. I need to get back to work now. Please keep us in your prayers.

Instant ancestor

This guy is someone's ancestor, just not mine. He's a rather handsome fellow for his age. LOL! I have him hanging in my livingroom. I guess I could always come up with a clever story . . .
