Pack, I'll see if I can get a pic of one of our fur babies.
Oops, that was wrong. It came with PicsArt, a photo editor. When I go to take a picture now, I get a choice of four cameras!

You are doing well SB, great to hear

I had a look at it at the Google Play store and as usual, I looked at the "permissions" first.

One of the permissions it wants (and this isn't unusual):

"read phone status and identity
Allows the app to access the phone features of the device. This permission allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call."

Wow, that is great news. See what a little bit of patience will bring you? I am just so dang proud on you. I think I am going to adopt you so I can have just one more kid to brag about. And I can always use another grandkiddie also.

Hope you find one. It makes all the difference in cleaning a lot of wall tile in the bathroom. I just spray the wall with the Scrubbie Bubbles (or whatever cleaner you use) and then scrub down with the brush. Even I can do that.

I just got back from shopping. Today my youngest is stopping by in a little while with some very fresh farm eggs. I am so excited. I am ready to do the chicken dance. It has been years since I have had a farm fresh egg. Nothing like it.

Yesterday I went for my six month evaluation with the doctor. He said I pulled or twisted the tendon in my thigh. that makes sense. Considering all that I was doing last Saturday. I was climbing, bending, stretching and a whole of other moves that I don't usually do. And rest will do it the best. Today while shopping, I must have twisted it again. While I was checking out, all of a sudden my leg almost went from under me. I scared the hell out of Spike and the cashier. Bless my son. He stopped everything and held up the line so he could help me. He even had me sit on his lap on the store scooter and drove me out to the car and then went back in to finish checking out. It is a good thing I carry some Vicodin with me at all times. He opened my OJ and gave it to me so I could take one. Then as usual he brought all my groceries up to my apartment, and put them all away. I bought two beautiful Haddock fillets. He can't STAND fish. Doesn't even want to go by the fish department in the store. He used a clothes pin to pick up that fish packet and put it in the fridge for me.

If I could wish just one thing for all of you it would be that you have someone in your life like Spike. There isn't one person that I know of that has anything bad to say about him. He will go out of his way to help anyone that needs it. Even at his own inconvenience. Oh he has his faults. Some of them are very worrisome to me. Like pushing himself too hard in spite of having had eight heart attacks. I live in fear that I will get "that" phone call. Last year he had a defibrillator installed in his chest. Every three months he goes down to the clinic here in Eastie, they plug him in to the phone line and send the info into his doctor in Boston. Ya just gotta luv modern technology.

I need to go lay down and give my leg a rest.

Spike sounds like a treasure. Have you told him?

Oh yes. But if I say "I love you", his response is "They are working on a pill for that. You can be cured." He just doesn't go for that mushy stuff. I think he is still ten y.o.

Each on of my kids has a title. My daughter is my favorite First Born Child. Spike is my favorite First Born Son, The Pirate is my favorite Middle Son and Poo is my favorte Youngest Child.
