And now the latest news out of Oakdale, MN.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press,   a 66 year old woman called the cops about strange and suspicious "goings on" at her home.

She lives at the 600 block of Heron Avenue North and says that when she got home she found a plastic bag, ( from Cub Foods) on the steps to the front of her house. 

It had hair in it!

I imagine someone has it in for her!   Sounds like a "Gaslight" happening!

Figuring out that new Kodak camera isn't as hard as I thought it would be for me.  Usually I have to read and re-read directions a cajillion time before I get it. 

Tonight,  after figuring out how to use the video cam part,  the first two videos were of the cat,  then I spied a herd of crows perched on the garage roof,  LOL.  My Lord,  they were struting around and playing in the stagnant water like a bunch of teenage boys!

There is Elvis Presl...

I'm getting real used to the CPAP,   the funny looking harness I wear on my head at night.  It's attached to a mask,  and that to a machine.   I know other JUsers are probably familiar with this and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. 

I truly feel a world of difference from using it.  The other night I didn't use it and was groggy all day,  and out of sorts.  I'm sure thankful the diagnosis was made,   my oxygen levels are normal now.

Saturday my son and I trundled on into Wal-Mart for groceries,  for me,  and I decided that I was going to get myself a decent camera.  My Canon sure shot isn't a sure thing anymore.  Half the time that Canon doesn't work,  sometimes the date goes back to the year of the camera,  necessitating changing the date again,   and sometimes it tells me it needs a new battery after it's already got a new one in!

SOooooo I chose a Kodak Easy Share Zoom Digi...

I"d just finished up an email to a dear friend,   shut the computer down cause it was thundering,  and lightening was streaking around..... and then turned on the tv and of course was shocked and sickened to see the 35W bridge bent in half,  like a deck of cards,  with cars crossways from each other,  cars in the Missisippi River,  half in and half out of the water,  like a scene out of a bad movie.

I used to use that bridge when I'd drive to the U...

   1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to...

My cousin's daughter is close to death,  from cancer.  She has three children.  It started out as a simple case of a "little cancer"  in her finger and now she's lost her arm and it's infiltrated her body.

This is what I hate about life. 

It isn't right that a sweet, beautiful,  and otherwise healthy young person have this happen to them.

The family is going to stay with the grandparents,  my cousin and his wife,  and then the kids will go with t...

I'd heard of the movie,  however hadn't seen it until tonight.  It was on the Hallmark Channel and I promptly fell in love with it!  It reminded me of tv shows and movies I"ve seen,  part "Little House on the Prairie",  "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers",  and "Bonanza".

Nothing like a feel good movie after a rought 24 hours....

Yesterday I went shopping for bread and milk and came home with strawberries,  two new blouses,  and a new skirt! ...

A perfect day,  clear skies,  sunshine,  a soft breeze,   and....I have to go to the dentist.

Who'd have thunk it?   a dental clinic open on Sunday?!

Ya,  the Smile Center is open on Sunday,   so I get to go in and have a small piece of bone shaved off the roof of my mouth,  it hurts my mouth when I wear my upper denture,  and as a result haven't been using my denture.  Let me tell ya,  that ain't a pretty sight!  ...

It's been a normal,  run-of-the-mill Saturday,  you know the routine,  where ya sweep, mop, wash dishes, take out the trash...ya,  cept in the back of my mind is how seriously bad some people have it. 

The bus driver that comes here twice a week just spent her vacation down south with her sister and family.  Her sister is dying of cancer and the family was called to be at her side.  The bus driver is hanging in there,  yet is on edge,  short-tempe...

Things are a bit wacky all over it seems.  Foreverserenity's blog points were showing up when I went to her blog to comment on the hotdog story,   Hey isn't that something?  eating all those hotdogs?   If someone wanted to have a contest like that,  why not make the food something that people would LOVE to eat?  like icecream? or steak?  Bet I could win a hamburger or steak eating contest!  Hands down!

I was in a meeting this morning and the l...

So what's up with Qwest?   Is it soooooooooooo fricking hard to get an order right?  

I called them last Thursday to get my phone number changed when I discovered that they'd made a BIG mistake ( way back in February ) by not giving me an unlisted and unpublished number!  You can bet your sweet anchovy I've been PAYING for that service though! 

So no problem right?  Wrong.   The dude puts in the order for a new number,  at ...

Christmas cactus,  oh what a lovely plant.  My dear neighbor, Mary,  gave me her cactus as she doesn't have a green thumb.  Her daughter Rene,  who gave me rides to the Stillwater Courage Center,  told her mom that I love to rescue plants so now I'm inheriting plants...

I feel rather like a fraud about the whole situation,  when I moved here I got into a bout of depression,  and my palm plant died off,  as did my violet ( that was an accident due t...

I still don't want to believe the diagnosis I was given yesterday! 

I went to Fairview Hosp.,  one of them that has a sleep disorder clinic,  to undergo a sleep study.  I was slightly anxious as I didn't know what to expect.   My ex-husband had one done back in about 81,  and he had severe sleep apnea,  and I was positive that couldn't happen to me!   I was absolutely sure that no way was I going to end up like him,  and need a tracheost...
