        /waving and smiling/ Hello TOD’s energizer music twitter geek! Been a little while since our paths have crossed – how was the family TG dinner, and how are nephew and the pet progressing?

          I couldn’t have asked for a better Thanksgiving weekend. Longer certainly, but not better. ๐Ÿ™‚
          We had a blast cooking, gabbing and eating with visiting family. Lots of running around between houses and sampling goodies everywhere. Playing board games and watching football. And of course, there were the obligatory shopping junkets, which I would love to have bowed out of. But it made Mom happy, so ya know…

          Nephew is growing up so fast! He’s such a mature 12- yr old. He just amazes me every time I see him. Mom swears that kid really is an old soul. He’s taking his role as “uncle” to little 2 yr old niece very seriously. It was adorable watching him teach her how to blow bubbles. He was her escort at their visit to a local game ranch too. Gotta tell ya, it always so special watching kids interact with small animals. A veritable cuteness overload! ๐Ÿ™‚

          Puppy-nephew is doing much much better too. The meds are a tremendous help. His trembling is less pronounced and he’s walking around just fine. He’s not 100% but so much close to being himself again.

          I have so much to be grateful for!

          Hope yours was great too!

            O thank you for that really thorough update, Dudette – loved it! ๐Ÿ˜€ I enjoy hearing of people having fun and running around while I observe.
            My Thanksgiving was nice and quiet, though I had to travel a bit – across town – which is something I usually try to avoid. Right now I’m starting to think a bit about Christmas, because I tentatively offered to host (so I wouldn’t have to travel) and am now thinking WHAT possessed me!

              I hear ya! Christmas is gonna be similar for me. Mom and Sis have graciously volunteered MY HOUSE for Christmas dinner. Funny how that works. Anyway, as long as I don’t have to do ALL the cooking, I’m fine with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey all!

    Just came back from the doctor. Had to get xrays to determine if I need to have a rod inserted into my left leg (my cancer is in my bones so they have to watch for fractures/weak spots). Doctor said I’m good for now. No need for another surgery at this time. Will have another xray in four months.

    Also, doctor was very cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not that I care what Rush says about anything, but I just wanted to poke Boehner in the eyeballs:

      What did Limbaugh say about the Pope?

      • 64 jacquelineoboomer
        December 2, 2013 at 4:19 pm

        Said he sounded like a “Marxist,” that it was “sad,” that the Pope was spending too much time on “the common man touch,” said his economic views are “dramatically, embarrassingly, puzzlingly wrong.” A bunch of bs like that. Don’t want to link to anything on the topic. Off to bleach my brain.

          JOB, it’s actually comical for Limbaugh of all people on this planet to call someone else’s views “dramatically, embarrassingly, puzzlingly wrong.” He didn’t have enough people boycotting and circulating petitions against him, now he’s riling up Catholics. Guess he loves shedding sponsors.

            As a Catholic (and actually religion doesn’t matter, as we all know, since what Pope Francis is saying about how we treat “the least of these” should sound worthwhile to anyone with a heart), I like to think that maybe even one self-identified Catholic Republican politician or Catholic Fox “news” person would disavow that creep Rush’s nasty comments.

            But, no doubt, they won’t. Party of greed first, in their minds and wallets.
