Thanks, lizzie, I am one happy bunny right now. But shouldn't I be Sistren Rabbit? Beautiful weather, seeing our kids. What more could I ask for? Nuthin', honey.

My 13 y/o Niece is staying at Grandma and Grampa's for a couple weeks. She came over and helped me paint trim on the deck, we went to town for pizza and then watched TV all night. The big grin came while she and Shrek were watching Charmed (a show he has never watched) and she was trying to give him the run-down on what the show was about. Shrek watched the whole show with her.

For my birthday in June my kids bought me a DNA kit from Ancestry. I just received my results. I am:

Europe West---59%

Italy/Greece---15%

Scandinavia----14%

Ireland----------9%

I have a grandson who was living in France, went up to Copenhagen and got married and now has his own business in Netherlands. All where my family was from. How cool.

I have been toying with the idea of sending for that kit. I know I am 1/4 Native American. But I have the feeling I am more. I know there is not as much English in me as I had thought as first. So what is that missing part? Just don't know the cost for the kit.

Addie: I wonder if you go on their web site, if it will tell the cost. I really enjoyed this gift from my kids. It was such a surprise. Jo

Grandson Josh's new "Harry Potter And The Cursed Child" Parts One And Two book came in the mail yesterday. I had pre ordered it from Amazon. I can't wait for his next visit so I can give it to him.

It is in play form, not novel. May be fun to read it together saying the parts out loud. I'm enjoying the story.
