The TVM parties for the rest of July!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

When I went to the local hardware/nursery store the other day
There was a lady in front of us carrying her baby
And holding the leash of her dog.
(they are allowed in the store)
It was a French Bulldog and he had his purchase in his mouth.
It was a net bag of three tennis balls
And no one.... absolutely NO ONE was going to get his toy.
His mama reached down to get it so it could be scanned
But he turned away and her holding a three month old couldn't try very hard.
So the checker came out with her scanning gun.
That little doggie was so worried that she was going to take his toy.
He turned this way and that before the checker finally got it scanned.
All the while telling him she wasn't going to take his toy.

It was sooo cute seeing that little dog guarding his toy.
Then happily walking out of the store with his prize.
My babyman and I just chuckled.


eta... just noticed this is my 24,000th post. :shock:
Gads, I have no life.

Story I really considered messaging you and telling you I was going, but at first I didn't know our itinerary (and we never really did know until the end of each day) and we were on the move almost constantly. Had I known we would have had some downtime in Galilee, we could have made that work. Or Caesarea, because I didn't sit through more than the first two songs of the Hillsong concert, then my mom and I and the little girl on our trip hung out at the picnic tables near the gift shop for a couple hours. So...if I ever go again, I'll try to pin down a detailed schedule and I'll contact you!

Happy birthday, by the way. 40 isn't bad...until you realize that you're 40 and how the heck did THAT happen?

So, if you're so inclined, I could use some kind thoughts.
On Tuesday, May 30th, I'll be going under the knife
To repair a floppy heart valve.
It's called Mitral Valve repair.
So, if you can pause a moment at 8am PDT
And send a thought to the my surgeon
For a steady hand, I'd appreciate it.

Sable will be taking me and my babyman
And the whole thing they say will last four hours.
I'll ask Sable to get on when she gets home
To let you know how things went.
It's in Tacoma, which is about 45 minutes from my town.
So it will be a few hours after that she can get home to report.

Yesterday we learned a good friend of ours has cancer...pretty much filling her uterus. :shock: I've been wandering around in a bit of a daze. She's a very private person and so we didn't know she wasn't feeling well or anything.

Good luck Calma!

Iris - It'd be tricky for me to make it to the Galilee anyway, public transport to that area is lousy. But you should come without a herd next time and make your own schedule. There is so much more to this country than tourist sites and holy places!
"...Their aim in war with Germany is nothing more, nothing less than extermination of Hitlerism... There is absolutely no justification for this kind of war. The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views. But everyone grasps, that an ideology can not be exterminated by force, must not be finished off with a war.” - Vyacheslav Molotov, ""On the Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union", 31 October 1939

Happy Saturday/Sunday peoples!

We got a 3 day weekend here in the States. Yay.
Except I will not venture far because of the traffic and stuff for the holiday. :P

At least the weather will probably be pretty nice. Not too hot, and not too chilly. :D

:D I love it, Tooks.

I've just a great Star Wars con post by Epbot(if yo'uve not read the Epbot blog before, you should. It's written by the lady who does Cakewrecks - also a great blog - and it is filled with geekiness). There's a video of a skirt in it that I just can't understand! But is awesome!

Calma is out of surgery and in recovery. She is still sleeping off the drugs but the operation was successful. They took more time than thought because they needed to re-work the repair. BUT she is doing well.

Thanks for all the good wishes you sent her.
