Happy Birthday, Addie!

Wishing you a day filled with sunshine. I hope you have a wonderful luncheon date with your daughter.



(I didn't want to give you cake since I know you watch your sugar intake. )

Thank you so much. My daughter is also paying to get my haircut today.

I had a bad scare around five a.m. I checked my sugar and it was 262! I did it again within one minute and it went down to 227. So I have been checking it every 30 minutes. It is going down to my normal level. I think it is what woke me up this morning. Any time my system is out of whack when I am sleeping, I wake up. I am feel fine now and my sugar is down to 191. By the time I go out with my daughter, it should be in my normal range. But I will watch what I order and eat for a couple of days. I think this incidence was related to the mild chest pain I woke up with. Not unusual for me. I am waiting right now for my sugar level to go down to 150 or in that range before I jump into the shower. For me, that is a normally high range. My good range is in the 120's.

Again, thank you for the good wishes. And don't worry, I am fine now.

A BIG heartfelt " Thank You" to all of you.

Maybe it is my imagination, but I look 20 years younger today. I do have a new figure with all the weight I have lost.

Thank you. Well here's hoping. I outlived two, and #3 better have a really good insurance policy. The money from the first two barely buried them.

You know, I still have #1 around. He is in my son's closet. He is supposed to take it to the British Embassy to send overseas and be buried with his parents. Who knows. Maybe someday. When Spike's wife was alive she absolutely refused to go in that closet. Gee, I wonder why!
