Hey sweety!! Nice to hear from you again!! I did not see your comix. I missed them. But looked them up, and they are great!!! Wow, you did a lot of great tings. And saw a lot of great places!! It was fun to read those comix :-) And more planned?!! How great is that!! Hope you'll enjoy those comming events/trips just as much!! Not much going on here. The usual, every week, or monthly (like appointemts with Alinda) things. Did not even had any birthday, or other party's!! Alinda did take me to the zoo for her birthday tho. She doesn't celebrate her birthday (no party), but instead she take's friends out to do something fun. The zoo it was with me :-D And no, did not go to IKEA..... it's really boring around here ;-D Temps are good tho. And getting better at the weekend. Up to F86 are the prediction for Saturday. Fantastic excuse to drink cold beer, and eat lots of ice cream ;-D Going to stock up on those!! Thanks for the beans. I like beans! All variations of them. Sending you a big bowl of vanilla ice cream, with whip cream and cherry on top! Enjoy your 4 day trip sweetheart!!! Hope you'll have a blast!!! XOXO

Thanks dear friend! We came back but then a lot of other stuff and stuff an I have hardly been on. Welcome home" is so cute! I think the rest of the summer is going to be like that. We're going camping for 4 days this weekend and have another long trip beginning of Aug. EDd you had a great day at the zoo with your BFF. Love zoos and aquariums. Something about seeing the fishies underwater fascinates me. A whole other world. ANy other fun things ou have been doing like a trip to Ikea :) I don't know if you saw any of the comixes I made of our trip that pretty much shows what we did in pictures. Can't really pick out one favorite thing but volunteering at Best Friends is right up there. Every place we stayed I was able to take a picture of a local kitteh even in Vegas which was pretty cool. Getting lots of green beans in the greenhouse. Sending you a big bowl. Love them raw right out of the garden.

And thanks for the lettuce!! I'll add some tomato and dressing (and some other veggie's) and enjoy it!! I've been really busy with installing 3 smartphones, the computer, some new accounds to go with both, and some repair jobs. But finally all of it is about done! Woohoo for that!!! :-D The plubing isn't fixed yet. Some public works proffesionals have to do that. They'll probably have it done by tuesday. We experience no problems at the time.

Hi there - how come you rate 2 birthdays in one year LOL Twice the fun and prezzzies :) Did they fix the drainage canal? How does thst affect your plumbing if it is not fixed? Hot and dry here last week until today when some cloud cover moved in and a few sprinkles. We're heading down south tomorrow morning and will likely be even hotter in some parts like Las Vegas. Garden is very lush and I've been giving away big heads of lettuce to family as they will be too big by the time we get back home in 2 weeks. Even lettuce can get "tought" if the leaves get too big. bryanad son finished the fecen around part of the backyard soy flower garden is now protected from the deeer. Happy danse! Sending you a big head of lettuce, allclean and ready to put in a bowl :) Not sure if I will have much interwebz while we are staying in RV parks. Lots of lub and hugz in advance just in case I don;t see you for ahilwe..

Wow! So you were racing back and forth like a tennis ball? ;-) I bet the two gdou's appreciated it a lot! It was their 25th annivesary.We have plumbing problems :-( The cable company wrecked our drainage-canal!! :-P We're good for now, but it has to be fixed soon!!!! The weather is weird here! It rains a lot, with heavy thunder showers. But it's really warm too, and very sticky!! How's the weather over there? Warm to I guess, because you mentioned fire hassardus dead bushes. Must have been a lot of work! How is the garden doing? Flowers, and veggies growing good? Glad you found a good Kitty sitter! Maybe not the one you're used to, but just as good I bet!! Have a happy Tuesday sweetheart!! Sending you a ice cold strawberry smoothie XOXO

Well Happy Anniversary to them - how many years have they been married? Sounds like a pretty big party if they had it catered. Actually our oldest grandson will be watching the house and the kittehs. We tried to convince our WA friend to come down here for 2 weeks to do the sitting :) Hey, you're talking to the Queen of typos so i can decipher most tanything. Hope your weekend was good. We spent yesterday working in the yard to clean up all the dead brush and wood to get our fire break all cleaned up. Today we spent the whole day watching gdau and "half" gdau play fastpitch softball. They are in two different leagues so was on 2 different fields on oppostide sides of town but we were able to see them bothplay several games.

I'm so glad you had a great time with your friends!! It was my brother and sister in law's anevesary. I'm still tired from the party ;-D They hired a catering company, and had a big BBQ. Food was fantastic!! Sounds like you have a wonderful trip comming up!! The catsitter will be staying at your place again? Yep, I like my all-in-one! But Windows 8.1 is still a bit grrrr. Windows 7 corrected my spelling (English too), but 8 does not. So there'll be a lot more typo's and errors from now on ;-D But as long as you understand what I'm writing, it will be ok I guess ;-D Have a fantastic weekend sweety!!!! XOXO

Oh I love our new all-in-one but I was able to get Win 7 thanks to a link a friend here gave me to Dell that was still selling them was Win 7 when we got ours a few months ago. My laptop is WIn 8 and I don't much like it but getting used to it. Fortunatey I use it mainly for ICHC and when we're on the road so don;t need to get into the nitty gritty of it's features. I do';t like "swiping" which drives me nuts. I guess they think everyone has a smart phone and would love that feature. We don;t and I haven't met too many people who like Win 8. Ibet the album will be cool. I did get into the water briefly. Was cold but not as cold as the lake we were on last weekend. It was warm and sunny and the kids especially enjoyed playingin the water as did the 3 dogs :) Tomorrow an old friend form WA is coming in for 3 days so likely I won;t be on too much except maybe early morning and lae
By Jiskat on Jun 1, 2014 at 6:46 AM
I'm so glad you had a great time!!! I don't care much for swimming either! To me the water is mostly to cold too ;-) Love to go out for dinner, and lunch and... well anything involving food ;-D Right now I'm installing a new computer. I was forced to buy a new one, because this one is showing some serious problems! Won't be to long before it crashes!! Got a all-in-one on sale too! Very happy with it, but not so happy with Windows 8!! OMG it's totally different from Windows 7. Can't seem to get my mail installed!! I'll probably have to ask a friend for help!! My school friend live's close by. We lost contact due to 'life happening'. You know... getting married, having children, work.... We had a fantastic time catching up on things, and desisted to do this more often :-D We do have some recreational water spots around. But it's such a small country, one might as well just drive to the sea. That's a little over 2 hours away by car. Photo album is all done. I won't know how it turns out, until the party next week. Grrrr.... these update's take forever. Think I'm going to be busy installing everything as it is on this notebook, to the new pc for a few days!!!! I don't have a lot of patients with these things. I want everything to just work fine!!! Hope you're having a great lunch!!! And maybe even a dip in the water!!! :-D Anything else planned for the next day's to come? Enjoy sweety!!!! XOXO
By Sylviag on May 30, 2014 at 7:45 PM
Hai, hai and hai! Camping last weekend was ossum. Very cold at night but the days wer emostly sunny and reasonably warm. Not warm enugh for me to ge in the lake but the kids did - they are warmer blooded than me for sure. Has to be real warm outside before I'll get in the water. Sun we're going with son, gal pal and gkids to a large reservoir nearb for the day and a picnic lunch. It is much warmer than the high mountain lakes so if it's hot enough I might dip my toes in :) Do you have any lakes or rivers close by to go to? I think most countries have something like a memorial day and that is a nice way to honor them. With our country haveing 4 times zones we wouldn't all be doing it at the same time unless we staggered the hours. How did the photo album project go? Was it family pictures? I'm sure their parents will love it. Enjoy your visit with your old friend. Do they live close by? Anything else planned for the weekend?
By Jiskat on May 30, 2014 at 9:08 AM
Hiya girl!! How was your week? Did you have fun camping? We ran into my friend from school late last year. We have visited them a couple of months ago. Tomorrow she and her husband and kid, are coming over here for a visit. We lost contact after we left school. It's great we get together after all these years again!! I hope you're having a good time!! :-D ~lub ya~
By Jiskat on May 23, 2014 at 11:44 AM
They are well deserved HPs!!! Camping trailers!! Thanks for that. The translator didn't give a good translation. Exactly like you described. I remember we couldn't touch the canvas or it would leek when it rained. But there was so little room in the sleeping aria, you couldn't help but to touch it, while turning in your sleep. Horrible thing! ;-) Thanks for the explanation on Memorial day! I love learning things like that! We have the same sort of celebration on may fourth and fifth. The evening of may fourth (8 'o clock) we remember our fallen heroes by having a moment of silence throughout the country. Everything and everyone stops for a few minute's. It's a very impressive sensation!! May fifth we celebrate our freedom. National holiday, with lots of fairs, parade's, food stands, and on. I'm going to be busy this weekend, helping my nieces to make something for their parents 25th wedding anniversary. They want to make a photo album. So I'll be busy photo shopping. You have anything planned for the weekend? Have a very happy Freeday!!! Lots of smoochies xoxo

Bestest new onTini!! I am so happy for her and her family. Our turn to visit them next but likely not til fall as we all have a busy summer planned. Today is beautiful here and supposed to be the rest the the week but weekend is up in the air. I know what you;re talking about, we call the camping trailers here - when you unfold them the top part is canvas. We gave our son a used one for him and the gkids. Memorial Day is to commemorate the people who died in service of our country in the military. Uually solemn celebratons in cemetaries. Unofficially it is the start of the summer vacation and camping season :) AN the day was changed to always be on a Monday to give us all a 3 day weekend :) Mmm, will share marshymellows with the kids. Senidng Tini a Happy Dans!
By Jiskat on May 20, 2014 at 9:45 AM
I'm so glad you had a great time with your friends!!! Maybe next time a little longer? The weather has been great here!! Today was a really nice warm day! 78.7F!! Sadly there are thunderclouds headed our way now. Just started raining :-( Temps are supposed to go down a bit now too. I've been camping a lot as a kid. My parents had a folder. (A tent disguised as a small trailer) I didn't like it! Maybe it was the bad campsite's we went to ;-D BBQ has that burned sort of smell on clothes too. Did you guys get to play some DG? Today Tini got her test result back. The chemo therapy did what it was supposed to do!!! Woohoo!!! Now she has to stay under supervision off course. Every few moths she needs to get a check up. But great news non the less!!! You have an other nice weekend to look forward too!! I understand you have a long weekend ahead? What's the occasion? A special holiday? Sending you a big bag of marshmallows to roast over the camp fire!! xoxo

Had a great weekend with our friends. Not enough time though. I am sure TIni enjoyed the little party as did her hubs. Nothing make one feel better than being with good friends. Was you weather good over the weekend? We had a little sprinkle Sun am but that was it for the rain. Have you eer gone camping? We are taking our RV this weekend to go campingon a lake with some other friends and their kids. I love sitting by a campfire. Of course when we get home everyting has to immediately go into the washer as it stinks of smoke :) lub and hugz
By Jiskat on May 18, 2014 at 6:14 AM
Oh great!! They're finally coming!! I know you've been looking forward to that :-D Hope you'll have loads of fun hun!! It was Henk's birthday (our neighbor, Tini's hubby) It wasn't a big party, because Tini is doing well for the moment. But she still gets exhausted real fast. So it ended early. Have a fantastic time playing DG, and having diner!!!!! Have fun!!!! Lots of love xoxo
By Sylviag on May 17, 2014 at 12:24 PM
I see lots of cat crafty giftees for your frens in the future :) What a neat idea for cat lovers. When don't you have a birthday party LOL Who is it this week? Glad the weather improved. We're waiting for our friends to roll in. They are somewhere in OR and should be here in a couple of hours. I am all ready for them so can stop by here for a bit. They'll only be here 2 nights and one full day. Probably play disc golf with them tomorrow. Have son and gkids over for dinner night as friends want to see them too. Have a great weekend. lub and hugz
