Loving Life

It has been a wonderful week.  Bill had his 74TH birthday.  The Big Brothers Big Sisters had their huge gala.  We booked Lani’s flight to come home over the holidays.  And….I get to have lunch with an old friends tomorrow and  Friday.

The Big Brother Big Sister Gala was wonderful.  So many nice people donating time and money to such a terrific cause.  The new executive VP is Pierce Bush.  Yes, of the famous Bush family, of which his dad Neil and family were on hand.  Pierce was the MC for the evening and added a special touch to the festivities.  Plenty of auctioning, dancing, flowing wine, a delicious dinner, and casino tables.  Bill and I bought two footballs at the auction.  One was signed by “cutie pie” JJ Watt and the other was a cougar football signed by Coach Bill Yeoman and Coach Levine.  We also donated to a sidewalk square at the new buiding being built for the BBBS.  We will have dad’s name engraved on it.  So, it was a wonderful evening.

I have lunch with and old high school buddy tomorrow.  Haven’t seen this lady since our 40TH reunion.  Really looking forward to it.  We really had some “kick ass” times in high school.  Then Friday, after helping with the church bulletin, Bill and I are having lunch with good friends Linda and David.  They are getting ready to leave on another cruise.

Bill has taken on a new exercise program.  Haven’t had to call the paramedics… yet.  His routine is now walking 20 minutes a day on the treadmill.  I’m waiting for the yell when he puts it on too fast and winds up in the next county.  I was lifting weights yesterday and he came in to ask me a question.  Then he informs me that he might want to start doing weights too.  I need to make sure his life insurance policy is up to date!  Scares the hell out of me!

Can’t believe it is almost October.  Casey is staying with us for a couple of days to help Bill with a load of hay and build a cover for the gas generator.  Hopefully we won’t have an emergency but when we do it will be easy to get to and ready to go.  It has been in the shed.  It is so heavy, even on wheels, so closer to the house is better.  We keep a couple of window units stored too.  As long as I have air and toilet, a bottle of wine and snuggled in…I’m good.

Have a great week my friends.  Hugs to all of you.

Ride,Baby,Ride! and Keep Those Pistols Loaded!
