A New Day

Good Morning...Today is another day. Grandma slept the majority of the day yesterday. Mommy & Daddy was up last night to help her go to the bathroom. She didn't eat much yesterday at all, Daddy said about a 1/2 egg and then Mommy was able to get her to eat a little pudding. I can tell she is getting weak, she has a hard time standing up to transfer. But Mommy & Daddy are handling it. Daddy promised Grandpa he would take care of Grandma and that is what he is doing.
Not much else is going on around the house. Take care and keep Grandma in your prayers.
Love ya...Keyron

Catching Up

Hi everyone I am sorry I have not posted, Mommy hasn't let me on the computer lately. She and Daddy have been taking care of Grandma. Grandma is not doing very well. She is getting weak. Aunt Alice came in for Mothers Day and that cheered her up, but she still sleeps most of the day. Sometimes it is hard for her to get her words out and then again sometimes you have to try to figure out what she is thinking or what she wants to say. As for eating it is a day by day thing. Uncle Lyle was in last Monday and by the time he was ready to leave, she was having a hard time talking. And she was ready to go lay down and sleep. This last weekend Uncle Vinnie & Aunt Hazel was in. She was really happy to see them. But Sunday afternoon, she got sick. It was a challenge for Mommy & Daddy to get her to the bathroom. She is having a hard time standing, so you really have to hang onto her. She keeps saying how she wants to go be with Grandpa.
I better go Daddy is ready to take me outside and boy do I need to go, it was a long night.

Catch Up

Wow I cannot believe it is the end of the month. Grandma is wishing for warm weather. She & Mommie talked to Uncle Vinnie a couple days ago & they had ice in Mountain View, MO. He had to drive in it. It took him about 8 hours to drive about 200 miles on Wednesday. He said he had about 3-4 inches of ice on his truck when he got back to town to park the BIG truck & head for home. On top of that ice was about 3-4 inches of snow. So it took a while to get it off so he could drive home. Aunt Hazel said the electricity flickered a couple times but did not lose power.

Then Grandma & Mommie spoke to Aunt Alice, she is VERY glad she is not working as she had ice & snow also. She did not lose power, but she said there was so much ice & snow on her driveway you could not tell where the driveway ended & the grass started. Wow that is a lot, but you know me, I would love to be out in it. I guess it is the fur I have...hehe!!!

Grandma was worried about Uncle Lyle since she heard that Shreveport was getting cold weather, so Mommie send an email to him. Well he responded....They are in Florida in 80 degree weather with the kids. I know Grandma would love that temperature, but I think I will stick with the cold weather here. I LOVE IT!!!

I think that takes care of everyone out in the bad weather.

On another note, Aunt Mary is working strange hours, 1:30pm to 10pm. Yes I said those are strange hours. Everyone here is in bed by 8:30-9pm I don't think Mommie could stay up that long. I know she said there is some good by those hours, she can go to 8:15am Mass sometimes & hit her quilting circle on Wednesday mornings.

Mommie wants me to put her 2 cents in, the Super Bowl is this Sunday....It is the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Arizonia Cardinals. Well she is hoping the Cardinals will win!!! At work today they had their own "Soup"er Bowl Party. I know it is a play on words..LOL!! They had 5 different kinds of soup. She said it went over well. Once Daddy downloads the pictures I will try to post some later.

Oh yeah, don't forget that Feb 2nd is Groundhog Day, will he see his shadow? I guess we will have to wait & see.

Catch Up

Wow here it is 2009 and it has been a while since I posted. Mommy said she has received a few comments from some people. So sit back, prop your paws up, have a drink and I hope you enjoy.
Thanksgiving was great. Daddy had deep fried a couple turkeys. Oh so juicy, but I didn't get any. Mommy had the table sit and it looked fabulous. There was Grandma, Aunt Alice, Uncle Vinnie & Aunt Hazel, and Daddy. Then Mommy found out that my cousins Scott and Shawn were coming. So they all squeezed around the table. I know that Grandma really enjoyed it.

Here is Mommy getting stuff ready to start cooking.

One of the nice juicy turkeys.

Back in the 1970's, that was way before my time. Scott & Shawn's Mom Barb made this turkey platter for Grandma. She has used it when the family has turkey to serve. Mommie couldn't help but take a picture of it.

Here is everyone sitting around the table.

As most of you know Aunt Alice crochets, embroideries, and quilts....many of you have received afghans, baby quilts, and anniversary quilts from her. Well she mentioned to Daddy sometimes the light is just not bright enough. Daddy happened to be at Harbor Freight and found this light that goes around your head. She loved it. She says she uses it when she has a lot of detailed work. Mommie told her she looks like a dork!!!

When my Grandpa was living, Aunt Mary use to take Grandma & Grandpa to Chanute for Christmas dinner with his brothers & sister. Now it is hard for Grandma to travel, so they meet at Aunt Mary's house. So the Saturday after Thanksgiving Great-Aunt Anna & Bob, Great-Uncle Carl, Great-Uncle Jack & Great-Aunt Joan traveled to Aunt Mary's house. Mommy's Godmother, Theresa Best, also came. She is a first cousin to them and lives in Shawnee. They took some pictures and had a nice dinner.

Sorry I don't have any pictures of Christmas, we really didn't do anything, just lounged around and watched TV.

That is just about it for now. I will leave you with a couple pictures of me. I just love laying on the bed. Daddy caught me before Mommie could get the bed made.

New Editor

Good Afternoon everyone, my name is Keyron. My picture is on the side. I am the baby puppy that Mommy talks about. I have taken over the posting for Mommie. She has been busy here lately. So I will try to sneak to the computer and post a few notes. Mommie thought she could keep up with this bogging, but like they say she has too many irons in the fire. I think you may like my "ruff" drafts of what is going on. Please don't tell Mommie & Daddy that I am on the computer, they think I just lay around all day. But you know this technology is fun....Uh Oh Daddy is home, gots to go, check back in a couple days I will have some pictures posted from Thanksgiving, Mommie really out did herself.

Oh yeah my cousin Donna sent an email to Mommie that Mommie spelled Rylee and Emilee's name wrong. Mommie means well, but she gets in a hurry and doesn't do a spell check. As for me, well I will try to use spell check, but my paws cover up so many keys.

The Family

Well it has been a week since I posted. I thought I would do better. Randy downloaded the pictures so I have a few to show you.

First of all I want you to see a problem it seems some people are having. Squirrels~~Yes I said squirrels. It seems my niece, Amy, in Texas had a big problem, they got into her attic and chewed at her alarm system. Well thanks to her husband, Josh and her dad, Lyle, they left a jar of opened peanut butter in the attic. Here is a link to her blog...she has a very good story to tell. http://txbeasleys.blogspot.com/

Now to our problem. We have 2 shepherds hook in our front yard, so Mom can watch the birds eat out of the bird feeders. Well the squirrels has learned to shimmy up the pool and get on the bird feeders. I caught them one day

So I would open the front door and scare them away. The problem came yesterday. They were doing the same thing and I hollered at Randy. His remedy to get rid of them was to throw a pair of pliers at them. Well they got back at him. After he came back in the house, they got back up there and chewed the rope that hangs it on the hook, so now the bird feeder is on the ground with all the seed there for them. Needless to say this ticked Randy & myself off that we went out and scared the squirrels and unfortunately the birds away and said NO MORE THAT'S IT WE ARE DONE. We told the birds we were sorry that this happened but they should take it up with the squirrels.

On another note, I have a few Halloween pics, late I know, to show you.

Elissa came by with Rylie & Emily

Angela and Jay came by with Nathan and Alexis

Michael & Haley came by with Landon and Kylie

Halen & Jessica came by with Lyla and Dixie Bell

Then of course at work we had a Halloween dress up. Well I guess you could say mine is a cross between Maxine, Momma Harper, & just an old Hag

Mom really enjoyed seeing the kids in their costumes and could not believe I went to work looking like this. But everyone at work got a kick out of it. And you know it was comfortable~~

Wow can you believe that Thanksgiving is coming up. Randy is going to deep fry a turkey, not sure who is going to stop by but I think I will have plenty of food to eat.
Everyone who is traveling, please have a safe trip to and from your destinations. I will say a prayer to St. Christopher for you to have a safe journey.

Pet Peeve

I am going to blow off some steam here! This is Nov 7th and stores are playing Christmas music. I understand retailers want to obtain sales, but come on lets at least enjoy Turkey Day!! I love the Fall (Oct/Nov/Dec). These are my favorite months, but retailers and TV advertisements ruin it. I have even seen people out putting Christmas lights on their house. Ok people it is warm right now, but that is the fun of it is to decorate when it is cold. Sipping hot tea or hot chocolate when you get cold. Yes people I am in Kansas where the weather gets cold here.
Ok I feel better now. Stay tuned Randy has downloaded Halloween pics and I will post some this weekend. I haven't learned how to hook the camera up to the computer yet. Give me time, I will learn the technology...LOL
