    Pierced ears are all I can handle. I have three holes in each ear. I can't stand facial piercings, lip piercings make me gag. Thinking of piercings below the waist just plain make me cringe.

    But, pants hanging off of guys is what really makes me see red. We have a guy at work that lets his undies show all of the time. I am going to tell management that if he can work with one arm holding up his pants, so can I.

    My dad did a lot of different things before he settled down. He was a racing jockey, a cross country jumping jockey, a trick rider in rodeos, and when that all got boring, he rode bulls for a while. He came from a family of 8 children. There were 7 kids in our family. And I grew up next door to a family of 8 kids. When the bus stopped at our stop, we filled the bus up!

    I think I am all caught up now, so I am going to take the dogs for their nighly walk, in my underwear. It is hot here! [​IMG]

    My dad died when I was 10. He was an alcoholic and wrecked his van. Moma did a really good job of making life as much fun as possible. She spent a lot of time outside with us. She taught us how to ice skate, shoot a gun, drive a car, garden and can, how to sew, how to crochet. We used to sing while we did dishes. We sang Morning Side of the Mountain, religious songs, Little Blue Man and all kinds of Western Cattle Driving songs. And probably songs I will never remember the names of.

    And then I turned into a teenager and we stopped getting along so well. . . .

    Granny sorry your foot is hurting you so bad. That makes everyday activities miserable. We got hit with a terrible storm yesterday. So much high wind damage, lucky for us we don't have any trees of huge size. Lost some limbs, but lots of flash flooding damage to my garden. I will just have to wait and see if the plants will perk back up or if I will lose them all. Really stinks, my green beans, peas, cucumbers & tomatoes were just started to come on. I rely on them to can and for selling in our vegetable stand. All the other stuff took a huge beating as well. Then to really top of the storm, my best layer Henny Penny got out sometime yesterday and was taken by a predator. Only found a pile of wet feathers. We have been without power since yesterday, but thankfully we have a generator that keeps the fridge & 2 freezers running. Have heated some water so I'm going to run off to try to get a sponge bath before bed. Night all, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite.

    Hopefully you don't live in a area of Michigan that got hit with the bad storms yesterday. I live in the worst hit area. I hate seeing all the damage to nature.
