Can somebody please help me here? What in the hell is an ipod? LOL, I keep hearing about these things called ipods that are supposed to play music. Is it like a tape player or a cd player? LOL. I am almost 40 years old( I will be 40 in 3 years ) and I have not kept up with todays music. In fact, I have never even seen an ipod in real life, except MAYBE once. I think that I saw this kid that had what looked like to be one in the grocery store. I did not get a good look up close. I think that maybe I am getting old. I certainly dont feel old. 40 is young. Its just that I stopped paying attention to todays music a long time ago. I stopped being interested in 'trendy' music,not that I really liked it in the first place. I like classic rock, preferably from the 50s 60s and 70s , like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, Gordon Lightfoot, etc.. so I am sort of out of touch with todays 'teenyboppers' lol

Yes It has been a while since I last posted here. I should post here every day. I should. Looks like my sister will not be joining with the rest of the family on Christmas Day. She has to work. Ahh well shit happens . I will miss her though. One less present that I will have to buy(for now) Yes, I have not done my Christmas shopping yet!!! But I only have 2 gifts to buy, so I will wait until the very last minute. I read somewhere that the average American spends somewhere around 9 hundred dollars. Pardon me, but thats bullshit. I would never spend that much money. Thats just me

Hey its been a long time since I posted about my furbabies. Update: The 14 year old is living a happy retirement in her luxurious condo that we have made for her. Her body is wearing down but she has a mind that is still sharp as a tack! She stays in her sweet condo at night and stays in the office during the day. If any of the younger ones come into the office, she reminds them that she is their queen and they must grovel at her feet!

Yes , I still take meds for my diabetes. I have type 2 diabetes, also called adult onset diabetes. I must take pills, not insulin. I take Avandia and metformin twice a day. It is no big deal to take the pills. I just hate shots. Yes, I know, I am a big baby. I hate needles. I don't really know why. As a kid, I used to hate a lot of things. Well, hate is not the proper word. The proper word is fear. I used to be afraid of clowns as a kid. I mean DEATHLY afraid. I used to be afraid of the dark. I used to be afraid of this little doll that my grandmother gave me . The doll was the character Goofy from Walt Disney. You would pull the string and he would say something GOOFY .And for some reason, that scared the Holy BeJesus outta me. Remember that movie 'Majic' with the mannequin that would speak? When the previews for that show came on, I would just take off and run away. Scared the crap outta me. My father had a little Cessna airplane that he co-owned back then. He would try to get me to ride in it with him. At first I was too scared. Then I did fly with him, I got over my fear of that. He even let me co-pilot and fly the plane ( with him in it of course) for a few minutes.

December 7, 1941.. "A day that will live in infamy"~ FDR I have said before that I have visited Pearl and the SS ARIZONA.. a very somber expirience. It is hard to believe that there are still people buried in that ship. It is great that our country made it a national park though. I wonder if President Bush will visit the site tomorrow? I think that last year he did and he placed a wreath at the site.
