I was going to do this entry on Thursday, but here it is late Wednesday night and I can see that I'm getting farther and farther behind. So before I turn in for the night, I thought I'd say Happy Birthday to my son Jim, my son-in-law and Bob's daughter, Hope. All celebrating brithday's on Saturday August 12th. Jim will be 35, my son-in-law will be______(I'll leave that for Julie to share, if she gets permission from her hubby) and Hope will be 40. Thursday, I'm taking Jim out to lunch (Mexican) before he goes to work at 2pm. And I'll drop the son-in-law's birthday prize off Thursday afternoon or Friday morning. And I sent Hope's present down to her with Bob when he flew down to Pasadena in July, to drive her & his grandkids up here for their vacation. I wish them all a very happy birthday and many, many more to come !!!!! I'm only posting pictures of my son, because I don't want to get shot by the other two. Of course Jim may shoot me, too....I don't know.
I've just discovered that one of the good tops I bought is not going to work. So I guess it's out to Gottschalks tomorrow to see if I can find another one. I washed all the other casual clothes and jeans I'm going to take, so those have to be ironed Thursday. And then I'll let them hang until Friday morning and fold & pack them at that time.
I got the front and back lawn mowed this evening, so that done. Talked to my neighbor on one side of me and he's going to get my mail and paper each day (I hate going to the Post Office to pick up mail after a vacation if I don't have to) and the neighbor on the other side is going to water all my hanging baskets, etc. I only lost one the last time he watered them for me, so that's not bad.
Gabi knows somethings up.....she keeps going over to my suitcase and sniffing it and she's been stuck to me like glue tonight.
I'm sorry to say, I'm going to turn off my alerts, probably Thursday evening. Otherwise, I'll have 5,000 alerts when I get back. So until next time..........Linda
