OK! Time for an update....hope everyone is doing absolutely marvelous!

Firstly, my daughter finally started at Cabela's and really seems to be enjoying herself. She likes everyone she is working with and enjoys what she is doing. It will take her a while to get into the groove of things, but I'm sure she'll do just great. She's got one of those perky personalities you just can't help but like. (She takes after her aunt Kathy!)

My son Zach turned 18 yesterday. My goodness! Where has the time gone? I can still remember him being a toddler and climbing everything he could get his hands on. Especially the rack to our trailor. He would scare the wits out of me. Still does, just over different things. I have faith that he will follow the right road, make good choices and become a young man I will be proud of. (He already is:))

Aubrey starts his golf season tomorrow. In fact I have to take him to get a physical this afternoon. I'm a little disappointed at his lack of enthusiasm over golf over the summer. I hope he gets back into the swing of it (get it?...'swing' of it...LOL...I crack myself up!)

I was having some pain in my right foot, so yesterday I went to see the doctor. You will NEVER believe this! I have gout. GOUT! I'm too young for that! It's in my left toe. Apparently caused by a certain acid building up in your body because of too much protein and yeast. Hmmm, yeast? I don't eat bread. Doctor asked if I had been drinking large quantities of beer lately. Moi? Any of y'all know about an unleavened beer I can find? Geesh, just give me some pills and I'll be fine. Took one last night and it was feeling better already this morning. Put me on a strong anti-inflamatory. Seems to do the trick.

Well, that's about it for now. Looks like once, maybe twice a week, for posts for me seems to work. Now, I just need to come visit y'all! I'll be there soon.....pinky promise!

My dad used to get gout, and he said it was quite painful. Hope your meds do the trick.
Sounds like you're keeping very busy :-)

Life gets pretty busy!

Thanks for dropping by. I had a day of spiritual retreat today and I'm anxious to write it up.

I hope things settle down for you!

God bless!

Thanks for the compliment, sis:) Though, I don't think my neighbor would agree with you. Apparently I'm not high on her list of liked people since my hubby and I don't like being woken up by her dogs at 2 a.m. Oh well, can't be liked by all.

It sounds like things are going well. I miss you tons and wish we could get together soon. I forgot to call Zach, give him a hug from us. Did any of your readers notice his birth date: 8/8/88? He's the easiest nephew/neice age to remember.

Gout = ouch. I've always heard that gout is something rich folks get from eating so well. :) I know it's a painful thing. I hope you get better soon!!

gout from too much yeast? that begs for a joke about yeast infections....but i won't, pat, i'm FAR too nice!
and maybe you should switch your drink of choice to tequila...;-D !
