Hint-hint!

Good evening, Connie, and thank you for today’s Tribute to Our Troops.

*hugs*

Hope your work week is going well. We had a couple inches of snow overnight. More expected.

I just discovered it tonight.
I am kinda bummed that they don’t have a good canteen, with a nice ribeye steak night for member’s, but it is very cool that they are open to the general public and that are part of the fabric of San Antonio.

We have established a routine! Yay!

One line...."Tonight's Canteen ping...Remembering The Troops". That's it! LOL!

Could work, and if it continues to ping 3 times no matter what, the pingees will not feel so bombarded.

Great idea.....

Hi my.....making progress for sure. I pushed a snow shovel across the deck to see what it felt like. I didn’t try to lift, just push the snow off. Nothing hurt, or tweeked, or anything. Now, if only I could sleep all night.

Is this your first snow?

Monday was Sonboy’s birthday & I succumbed to bronchitis as well that day so Iv’e missed a couple of days of work.

Heading back tomorrow. Feeling much better!

What’s keeping you up at night?

Give it another week or 2 and you should feel right as rain physically.

The last time I was around kittens was at my Brother & Sister in Law’s ranch house.

They were so adorable we let them climb up our legs to “kiss” our faces.

Total sock messer uppers however! Don’t dare leave a sock ball in site!

I did, too. I think it was probably the perfect trip! Everything was practically perfect.

Except that horrible lunch at the shrimp place. LOL!

Wimberly will be awesome!

Did y’all go to the river yet to practice?

I am to take some folks this weekend.
Not the FReeper gang.
Should be good weather.

Wimberly wont be the culinary capital of the world BUT we are set up for doing our own cooking and doing “the gangs all here” thing.

It will be great.

We had just a couple inches earlier in the month. Nothing since...til now.

Oh no, HJ....that is NOT encouraging, but I will give it a try.

Tonight I clicked post, counted to 1, and backed completely out. That certainly didn’t help either.
