Good Morning Everyone! Angie, I'm glad your horseback riding class was cancelled, can't be good for them or you. I'm running out this morning so I can get back before it gets even worse. Everyone, stay safe today! Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow!

Good morning ladies.....President Obama is holding a town hall meeting across the street today and I would love to have gone but have other obligations. I need to leave early as they are closing Rt 1 and I need to get home to get Larry to treatment. This will be a mess with the cops and the traffic. Please, as Theresa said, I don't want anyone falling with heat stroke. Isn't she just the sweetest to worry about us whild on va ca siooon! Wish I was on va ca shiooon! Have a good day, stay out of the heat and see everyone tomorrow.......looking forward to getting just the perfect gift! Such fun we have. Michelle, no excuses, busy or not, you can stop in and say hi for a brief minute so we know you are okay.

Good morning, we have our eldest grandson visiting today. Our son works for a pool maintenance company so hoping to take him to one of their pools.

Stay cool as best as you can.

Kathi, if the ac isnt working can you deliver my lunch to my car? LOL.
Caterina, enjoy your visit w/grandson. How old is he? Now that mine are teens I dont see much of them. yes, that is a whine you hear in my voice and a recurring whine at that!
Michelle - hope to see you one of these days. you WILL be at the swap right?????
Im glad all the sports and horesriding have been cancelled. I dont plan on going out except to take out trash. Of course the last time I took it out I fell and tore up my arm. I wish Toby was bigger. I could make him saddle bags.
Stay cool.

We have four grandchildren - a granddaughter who will be 21 in October, her half-brother who is visiting will become a teenager in November. Our son has two boys who are in Poland right now with mommy visiting family and they will soon turn 6 and 4.

Thanks for the head's up on this! I work near BWI but live in Rockville and this could make for messy driving, depending on the times.

THANK YOU! It was such a good idea. Yep after the couple of stamping commitments I have on the books already I'll be a little MIA until end of season, and I only have two in football! I'm glad to see that they have all the teams practicing in the same area. That rocks for the parents. Maybe we can get the ladies to come to some games! That would be fun.

Well just watched the rodeo.... My nephew and his partner got another no time. Donnie roped the head but Reed missed the feet. I'm sure they are a couple of sad cowboys right about now. Hope they get another shot next year. I'm sure they will! So they're packing up and getting ready to start back to IL. Hope they get that killer 8mpg's back! lol

Hi girls! This time tomorrow we'll be at Kathi's hooting it up I'm sure. I can't wait.

Leaving at 3:00 today to run errands for work - bank, MVA, Office Depot. Will be a hot afternoon in and out of the truck. Then off to the store to get some groceries and home to fix my pretzel salad for tomorrow.

Kathi, is there anything else you can think of that you'll need tomorrow? If so, just holler.

As always, we had a very nice time with our grandson. He loved the pool and got to meet a former Marine so he enjoyed himself. Did not stay all that long but was glad for the opportunity - this particular pool, actually pools, is extremely nice!!

Cindy, thank you soooo very much for your sweet card - you are so nice!
Thanks so much, too, for the offer of a ride and would love to come tomorrow but still not feeling up to par but please, please eat a bunch for me.

Where's the best place to get EZ Mount? I don't need alot, just a sheet or two so would it be easier to just order it from SU? It's $10.95 for 2 sheets.

Yes, and they can't wait to see everyone! And everyone be warned, they are all big moochers so they will sit in front of you and look pitiful so you'll give them some of whatever you're eating!

NormallyI do not get involved with politics or bug Government,but this is just ridiculous.

You may recall me mentioning my oldest cousin and one of her kids with all the medical issues. well a few months ago her transplant was put on indefinite hold( and no I do not blame the gubmint for this, that is squarely on my cousin's shoulders and her lack of parenting skills, but I digress).

she has had a full time job with bennies for ,gosh.. over ten years. it's not a great job( cake decorator at Kroger) but it was full time and flexible enough to let her take Christy to dialysis and all her various and sundry doctors. well her medical insurance of course was insufficient to cover all needs as she has gotten worse so she went to Medicaid for help.

know what they told her? because she had a worked for so long and had benefits she was not eligible for a single dime they literally TOLD HER to quit her job and find one that was half the hours that did not provide benefits. she has 5 kids, the oldest in in college and the youngest is 5. she is NOT married although she is living with someone( who BTW isn't a babydaddy to any of 'em)

so she had to quit her job.. in this economy, just to be able to afford to keep her child alive for the next year( she has been given only about 18 months to live as it is) and STILL try and keep the rest of her family fed clothed and under a roof. on half the pay. even though she now qualifies for food stamps it is still a huge pay cut overall.

sad part is I was told the exact same thing 20 years ago.. I was single, white had no kids but because I had a full time job( and I could not afford the insurance premiums for) I was ineligible for any assistance. I could barely pay my el cheapo rent, I did not drive or even take public transport.. I walked to work. skipped more meals than I ate since I could't afford groceries. all I wanted was basic medical so I could get my arthritis meds. she literally told me I needed to be a black single mother with at least 3 kids before I could qualify. and people wonder why no one gets off welfare any more....

I hear ya DM! This country is so screwed up, it's really sad. I know this sounds morbid but DH and I both say we are glad we are on our way out, we would not want to be a young person coming up in the world today, they have way more challenges ahead of them than we've ever had. I really worry abouy what life will be like for my grandchildren. And these idiots in Washington are just making things worse for everyone.

Good Morning Ladies! I am so ready for a fun day! The a/c is working good so we will be nice and cool! Can't wait to see everyone!

Also, before I forget, I received another adorable card yesterday from my SS! With all our talk of bikinis, she made me a very appropriate card! I finally got the lithium batteries for the camera so will post pics of all the cards this weekend! Thanks SS for such a cute card, I just love everything about it! It will also be on display in my LR with the others for everyone to see that will be here today!

See you all soon!

You may recall me mentioning my oldest cousin and one of her kids with all the medical issues. well a few months ago her transplant was put on indefinite hold( and no I do not blame the gubmint for this, that is squarely on my cousin's shoulders and her lack of parenting skills, but I digress).

she has had a full time job with bennies for ,gosh.. over ten years. it's not a great job( cake decorator at Kroger) but it was full time and flexible enough to let her take Christy to dialysis and all her various and sundry doctors. well her medical insurance of course was insufficient to cover all needs as she has gotten worse so she went to Medicaid for help.

know what they told her? because she had a worked for so long and had benefits she was not eligible for a single dime they literally TOLD HER to quit her job and find one that was half the hours that did not provide benefits. she has 5 kids, the oldest in in college and the youngest is 5. she is NOT married although she is living with someone( who BTW isn't a babydaddy to any of 'em)

so she had to quit her job.. in this economy, just to be able to afford to keep her child alive for the next year( she has been given only about 18 months to live as it is) and STILL try and keep the rest of her family fed clothed and under a roof. on half the pay. even though she now qualifies for food stamps it is still a huge pay cut overall.

sad part is I was told the exact same thing 20 years ago.. I was single, white had no kids but because I had a full time job( and I could not afford the insurance premiums for) I was ineligible for any assistance. I could barely pay my el cheapo rent, I did not drive or even take public transport.. I walked to work. skipped more meals than I ate since I could't afford groceries. all I wanted was basic medical so I could get my arthritis meds. she literally told me I needed to be a black single mother with at least 3 kids before I could qualify. and people wonder why no one gets off welfare any more....
This just makes me sick. Vote the bums out!!

So so sorry. Fully understand how you feel. Have lived long enough to see how terribly sad things have become over the years and my heart hurts for my children and grandchildren. Btw, it took years to finally get disability to approve my case - they automatically turn down everyone and then you have to go through the long appeal process. Also a study was recently done that I read stating that Medicare/Medicaid deny medical procedures, meds, etc. more than all the private health insurance companies combined.
