Gone Again.......

Yes Gang..!!
I'm taking another little blogging break...

Two Reasons....
  1. My younger brother.....who still lives in having hip replacement surgery on Monday the 29th and i'm driving the female parental unit back to the ole' home stead, so she can be there with him for a few days.......of course i'll be glad to see him also, but, i'm not looking forward to that 26 hour drive there and back.......
  2. I'm hurting....!! I think i've got internet neck......laptop shoulders......keypad elbows..... and mouse pad wrist.......Yep! i've stayed to long at the long hunched over the long sitting on my derriere .....and enjoyed every minute of it!!
Sooooo.......i'll leave you with a little snap shot....taken by the #1 grandson.....of the three generations, pausing outside one of the many quilt shops.....
(I'm the one trying to hide behind the female child)

Don't forget me.......i'll be back...!!
That's a promise..!!



  1. Be careful! Praying all goes well with your brother!We will be here when you get back!

  2. Your brother is in my prayers. Have a safe journey and let all those joints rest. Will wait for your return.

  3. Have a good trip! Maybe you could find a quilt shop or two on the way.....that was a silly statement, wasn't it?! Don't forget to take lots of handwork.

  4. hurting - I call it Secretary syndrome and I have it something terrible. I'm trying some MSM2000 pills that I bought at Bare Essentials, it may be helping some. Doc just called in antiflammatory pills to the drug store and recommends that I get some physical therapy or my shoulders are going to "freeze up."

    Have a safe trip!

  5. Have a safe trip. I think the weather will be about perfect. It is a long drive so stop often.
    Hope the replacement goes great. It is always good to mave extra family around for encouragement.Love from NC, we are back in the piedmont,

  6. Your brother and you all will be in my prayers. Hope your trip is a good one and the surgery goes well. I love the picture of the 3 of you. Those smiles tell it all for sure!

  7. Have a great trip spending time with your mom and your brother. I really like being able to put a least part of a face with a name and a mental image! Hurry back--you will be missed!

  8. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time with your mom. I'll keep your brother, the medical staff, you and your mom in my prayers.

  9. Have a safe journey. See you when you get back!
