Tails Magazine published one of my dog poems today. Excited! Weegee's famous! Sort of.

Thanks for the whiz-gratz, and for readin the blog. Yep. Weegee won't be talked into writing for it. Yet. Stay tooned. She may someday be convinced to tell her side of the story. And the lol I sent was announcing that my first book was free as an ebook for a few days. I took it down after some meanies downthumbed and called me "grossly self-promotional" for not charging any dollars for my kitty book. Huh. Anyways, I caved to the baddies and removed the lol. Oh, and my brothers didn't really know any of my classmates other than a few close pals. I never dated until Pat, so no -- no following me around on dates.I went out with a gang of kids that sometimes included boys, but Pat was my first boyfriend.Good thing I chose wisely my first time!

Welcums! And I see you got a whzi of an FP - cngrats! Getting back to you on previous msgs. Thanks for the FP congrats - haven't had time to go to the FPs unfortunately. Cute blog - Weegee has a Garbo complex :) U sent me a link that is a "yikes" - did you delete the LOL? Sounds like it was fun once you could get with just those people in your class. Are your bros close enugh in age that they knew some of the same people you did? Did they follow you around on dates too LOL As I get older my hearing is definitely not what it used to be and like you, sometimes hard to filter out a single converstion when a lot of people are talking, Bryan i even worse from years of not wearing hearing protetion when he was younger and using power tools at the job. He will likely have to get aids within the next few years.

Towelygratz!! And happy Forf!

Looks like you had quite the adventure! Glad you're home safe and thanks SO much for reading the sequel!! It really means a lot and I am happy to hear that you liked it! My HS reunion was very good. Not as good as it could have been, though. We went cheap and just joined the annual alumni banquet for all classes of my school. Hundreds there, but only about 24 from my class. We then went to a bar for visiting, but it was too hot, crowded and loud, so we went to another bar that was cooler, bigger and quieter. I wear hearing aids, so visiting was still difficult, as it's hard to zero in on who I'm trying to listen to when there's a lot of noise all around. Still, nice to see the "kids" again. Funny thing -- two of my brothers live up there and they followed me from bar to bar, making it look like I had chaperones. Maybe I needed them, tho -- I never drink and I had two that night. Had to drink a 7-up for quite a while before I felt I could drive!

finished book while on vacation Loved it! Once Ihave a little time I will write a review for Amazon. Two weeks of RL to catch up on. I cannot believe the mail we get in 2 weeks both hard copy and email Sigh How as your reunion - I think that was happening while I was gone.

By jennybookseller on Jun 14, 2014 at 8:36 AM

Wow! Jealous! Have a blast, babycakes!

By Sylviag on Jun 13, 2014 at 11:28 PM

We're going on a 2 week RV road trip starting tomorrow so not sure when/if I will be on next. Ennoy the reunion!

By jennybookseller on Jun 13, 2014 at 8:59 PM

Dubble thanks, S! Hope yer weekend will be swell! I'll be catching up (I hope) on work before heading back up to Michigan next weekend for my 30th H.S. reunion.

By Sylviag on Jun 13, 2014 at 7:07 PM

AnimaLOL congrats too!

By Sylviag on Jun 13, 2014 at 6:54 PM

LOLCat congrats! Have to be a true friend to do that!

By Sylviag on Jun 8, 2014 at 8:26 PM

What a wonderful treasure to give you! I hope he is doing better now. Dementia is something the medical research people are really devoting a lot o effort to because of all of us baby boomers hitting the prime time to be afflicted. Caring for a dmentia patient in a facility is very expensive so that is a big driver (aside from the fact it is such a mean disease).

By jennybookseller on Jun 7, 2014 at 6:43 AM

Hi. I can't get back up there for a couple of weeks because of appointments we have (grr!), so I don't know first-hand. He had tests showing no major digestive issues other than an infection. He's on antibiotics, so we'll see what happens after they've done their work. I felt so bad last night after talking to Mom. She had no idea that the company she'd had for five days was her sister-in-law and nephew. Somebody needs to cure all dementias. Like, yesterday! On another note, Dad gave me his private diary to read. He wrote it from 1972 to 1984. I'm getting all kinds of insight and lots of surprises about that man!

How is your Dad doing?

By jennybookseller on Jun 6, 2014 at 9:44 PM

Thanks, Syl! That one is from at least six months ago. Not sure why they fished that one out of the dust.

By Sylviag on Jun 6, 2014 at 9:37 PM

Hot Diggity Dog congrats!

By jennybookseller on Jun 2, 2014 at 9:50 PM

Yikes! Glad he is still with us, though!!

By Sylviag on Jun 2, 2014 at 9:31 PM

It was extremely bad requiring several surgeries. Here are the original LOL Foxkatt did to tell us about it, the fundraiser LOL and how to contact him LOL I've faved healing and well wishes LOLs to DrTinyCatz

By jennybookseller on Jun 2, 2014 at 9:20 PM

I'm out of the loop since I've been gone. There was a car accident with the Cow? Sounds very serious!

By Sylviag on Jun 2, 2014 at 9:31 AM

Oh dear, so glad you got him into medical care. That is a lot of different symptoms which were being compounded as he got weaker. I think you may be right on your brothers not being able to see the changes. I assume they are gong to be more acive in monitoring him now since you can't be there all the time. Have a great day.

By jennybookseller on Jun 2, 2014 at 4:44 AM

Sounds like you're busy, but a good busy! I noticed my dad's face was odd on one side. He fell and then after sitting for a half hour he nearly did again. He let on to me that he'd been having diarrhea for weeks and that he'd dropped a lot of weight lately. He's very tall and is down to 155 pounds. His face problem was not a stroke, thankfully. Bell's Palsy, most likely. He's getting a colonoscopy on Wed. and he's had a cat scan and bloodwork and balance tests. He was dehydrated from the diarrhea and headed for malnourishment issues. Also, his BP drops upon standing, so that explains the falling. He needs to just stand after getting up to wait for his BP to stabilize. He's 84, but until recently he hasn't looked his age at all. Bothers me that my brothers who live right near my folks aren't noticing his problems. Maybe it's harder to see changes when they're gradual, and maybe he's just not telling them what's happening. Arg.

By Sylviag on Jun 1, 2014 at 9:51 PM

Aack! Sorry to her about Dad, glad he is back home and hope tests show nothing serious. What happened? How was the family get together otherwise? Had youngest gson spend the night last night and then th whole family and a bunch of friends went to a bearby reservoir for some lafeside recreating and picnic grilled dawgs on the beach. Very fun. TOmorrow night we have a good friend from WA coming to stay for 3 days so timehere will be limied again. So looking forward to seeing him though.

Thanks for the conga ratz! Just back now from my Michigan trip. Had to put my dad in the hospital while I was up there. He's okay, back home, and has more tests scheduled for Wednesday. Might have to run up again very soon after I get caught up on my bookselling work. How're tricks out your way?

By Sylviag on May 30, 2014 at 5:40 PM

Crossover to ICHC Main FP congrats!

LOLCat conngrats! You and Betskand are in the LOL house construction biz today :)

By jennybookseller on May 28, 2014 at 10:27 PM

Good question! Plus, I only have a few days to practice when I get home before the first rehearsal. Might not try to play the first night. Just check things out. i used to play the flute, but after the ninth grade I played the auxiliary percussion -- bells, xylophone, some drums, woodblock, triangle, tambourine, etc. Much more fun than the flute. However, I haven't played those in 30 years, just piano and some mandolin and such. Rusty with the mallets!
