Addie, glad to hear your son is going to help out with groceries...with the cost these days, yikes.

I just came in from cleaning out the Weber, washing the patio table, and trimming some container plants. Going to make up a shopping list and head out to the grocery store bright and early in the morning. Hoping to grill some shrimp tomorrow, we'll see how it goes.

I'm trying to calm Violet down. There are fireworks going off for Canada Day and they scare her. For some reason she wouldn't let me put the Thundershirt on. Usually it helps to calm her and she lets us put it on no problem.

Stupid Idiot here reporting in. Spike took me shopping and when we got back I didn't have my leg far away from the door. So when I went to close the car door, the pointed end of the door caught my leg really good. Took a nice hunk of skin.

I did something today that I haven't done in years. I not only spent every bit of my food stamps, I went over by $2.00. I usually have about $60 left over for the rest of the month. And then when we got back, I went to get on my scooter down in the Community Room and noticed that I didn't shut it off. Fortunately if you accidently leave it on, it will shut itself off after a certain length of time. So now I have it charging up. This is going to be an interesting day. First the scooter, then the food stamps and last my leg. What else can I do to screw up the day?

We use an oscillating floor fan along with A/C to cool the house. It makes a significant difference. Sadly it broke last night so grandson and I are off to get a replacement this morning. We may be able to squeeze in a pizza for lunch or an ice cream.

Why not both? I think little grandson deserves anything his little heart desires. He is one great kid! And grandparents are supposed to spoil the grandkids. Didn't they teach you that at grandparent school?

Oh we know that. He has a certain grandpa wrapped around his finger. I was thinking about the time you had surgery on your arm and how careful and caring he was with you. He is one heck of a great kid! And a special one for him.

I wondered about that. I would have tried it if I could find a good place to put it. I may try harder, since you say it makes a significant difference. Ours cools the house just fine, but it is aimed in such a way that it doesn't put a lot of cool air in Stirling's office, the one that has so many computers running that we don't have to heat it in winter.
