Bringing My Life Up-To-Date

Anything new since my last post? Not a lot. Well, maybe a little bit.

My biopsy came back good. No cancer. Now that's big!! We can breathe easy for three more months.

I finally bit the bullet and bought myself a little point and shot camera. Now I can "shoot" to my heart's content without being afraid that I'll break something on Harry's fancy-smancy DSL with all the lenses. He never complained but I would really feel bad if I damaged his camera. I bought a Sony Cyber-Shot because it was on sale and looked simple. Then I read the User's Handbook. Simple??? Hmmmmm. It's this way, if I should happen to break this camera, it won't be a big loss.

Last week our 6 year-old grandson, James, decided that he was going to be a vegetarian. He came to that decision after watching a cooking show about cooking quail and/or dove. It was shocking to learn that we eat birds. Chickens, beef, and pork (any meat) are all off limits in James' mind. Anyway, last Sunday he announced that he no longer eats meat of any kind. The roast beef was no longer part of his diet. We all smiled, though, when he announced that he'd like gravy on his potatoes.

This Sunday Harry is cooking chicken and Boston butt on the grill. James has decided that he can eat his "special piece" of chicken that Papa always cooks for him. Somehow that won't violate his new lifestyle. The rest of us will just bare our teeth and dig in. Now that I have a "simple" cheap camera maybe I'll remember to take pics to share.

There are several projects coming together in my mind and I have one in progress. Progress has been on hold due to the biopsy and the record setting hot weather. Next week is a new week - we'll see what happens then.

Here's wishing everyone a wonderful July 4th. Be safe, have fun, and don't eat too much.

So glad for the good report. That is always a relief.

It was 110 degrees on our porch week before last. I took a photo of it, because I didn't think anyone would believe me. It's cooled down a bit here in GA.

Have a great 4th!

yep i must agree-- fantastic news!
love this post ! it brought back so many memories of my soulkid -- and her - failed - yet sincere attempts at being a vegetarian. she started young as well. even tried to get involved with PETA. which as you can imagine didn't fly very well in a house full of fishin souls :)) -- it didn't matter to her that we catch and release either. just the fact that we 'hurt' them, was horrible. ugh.
what made it even worse that she decided to go vegie? the child - in the earlier years? refused to touch a vegetable ! end result? FAIL. between the ages of about 8 til now, i couldn't tell ya how many times she has attempted the veggie, vegan route ... she has however increased her veggie palate -- the kid just loves chicken and peperoni pizza too much to live on salad and asparagus. :))

long live MEAT

good luck to the boy -- and his special chicken and gravy :))
i give him three days before he's chowin down on the roast !

hugs LBF
happy 4th !
