Until then, crossing body parts and sending up prayers.
I know, trying hard to keep from getting too excited and packing everything right now. Thanks foryour support.

Thanks Cheryl. The beauty of where I am moving to...I know lots of people there as my Mother grew up in the area and my best friend from grade school lives there, too!

PF, what made you decide to work where your are presently employed? My guess is "straight out of nursing school." Are Shrek's family going to be in the area also?

I went to nursing school so I could assist in the care of the Elderly. The facility I chose was because the then Administrator had given me a grant to get me started with purchasing my books and gas to get to Missoula from Hamilton. I signed up to work at least one year for her. By the time I finished school, she had moved up to Missoula to my present facility and I worked my year and have continued till now.

Congrats Princess, and hoping for an easy move. It sounds like you and Shrek are really excited about it. Yay!

Wyshie - wow, that's a pretty tech-y place where you work. Hope you had a good day at your fishing competition.

My youngest daughter and her hubby just bought their first house. We're all so excited for them. They'll now only be a mile from me instead of about 10 miles away, which will be so nice. SIL is going to be going on nights at the police department, daughter works days, so I'm going to be on call for watching my grandson for the next few weeks while they try to find time to pack up and move into their new home.

That's so nice that they will be practically in your back yard, Cheryl! Wishing them a smooth, easy move. I hope your grandson makes lots of new friends.

I had a good day, however I caught no qualifying fish. Hey ho, that's the way it goes sometimes, just to be out there sometimes is enough. The competition was the first one in the series of competitions on a small nearby island called Herm.

There were several bass caught (European Sea Bass), Grey Mullet and Lesser Spotted Dogfish.

It was very chilly and windy to start but as the wind dropped the sun began to win the battle.





And then home time on the boat.

I was going to say that a mile is walking distance. Your grandson could walk to your house for a visit. Then, I remember that times have changed.

Nice pics Wyshie...looks like it was a gorgeous day.

Thanks CG and Taxy...we're all hoping it will be an easy move as it can be. Tyler is still little, he'll be 5 this summer so he won't be walking anywhere by himself for a long time. Even in small towns, you can never be too careful. The kids I do see walking home from school are in groups with at least one older child.


Yep, times have changed and it's a dangerous world out there.

I am up in Northern Minnesota helping out my sister who had a right knee replacement surgery done. Her DH & I just got her back home today. Some major challenges lye ahead in the next few days.
