It has been such a terrible summer, what with the following:
  1. my nephew passed away on June 8 quite unexpectedly
  2. my brother, (nephew's father, my last living sibling) died on July 9th
  3. the hottest July anywhere in the US  was in OK.
  4. Heidi got sick a week or so ago, turned out to be a bladder infection
  5. I have had a continuing ear problem since early summer, finally went to the doctor yesterday
  6. I've had a sensitive tooth, dentist says I need a new crown and 2 fillings
We did have good news yesterday. One of our granddaughters, Chelsea, got engaged this week. She will graduate from college next spring and a wedding will be planned for about the same time or close.

Of course, all hasn't been bad, there was a beautiful wedding in June, in which we gained a new daughter and granddaughter.

 Hubs and I went to New Orleans for a few days after Rick's wedding.
Had a great time, just walking the French Quarter and eating good food.

We stayed at the Monteleone, and this is their famous Carousel bar and it was soooo nice.

 Standing in line to eat dinner at Acme Oyster House

          What is left of my lunch, Oysters Bienville, my favorite.

With August here, fall is coming soon. We have lots to look forward to in the next few weeks. Our triplet babies will be here on Friday, their first visit to Oklahoma, football is 3 weeks away and the OK philharmonic will be starting soon. This has got to mean cooler weather, can't wait!

Have a great rest of the week everyone!

Maybe you'll want to place a facebook icon to your website. Just marked down this blog, although I had to do this by hand. Simply my suggestion.

O, so glad you came by today. Good good luck on winning the dressings. They really are good..pretty strong, so a tiny bit goes a long way.:)

NO is one of my favorite cities to go. I just love it there. Wouldn't wanna live there but sure is a fun place to visit. Hope you had coffee and a beignet..yum...:)

Congrats on the June wedding..and on the other.
Triple grandbabies can't be beat, I'm thinking. We have twin grandgirls, son's, and daughter had her first girl 3 days later so these three have grown up together, almost like triplets.:)
They will be 14 in Nov. Wow...

Have a fun day..

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a very easy on
the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come

Excellent work!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to
let you know. The design and style look great
though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
