sound effect: LOUD tail thumping

Alex was on the computer [playing Star Wars games] and heard a rhythmic tail thumping ... he looked & saw our Honey Bunny stalking a chipmunk!

Fun read & recent DVD choices

Total Chick Lit & parts of it are totally funny. Web site [with chapter one] HERE

Recent DVDs ....

Kiefer Sutherland as Paul Gauguin : )

After reading the book, Alex & I watched the movie [which was very close to the book w/kewl special effects]

Plus a couple classics by Hitchcock -- DH & I enjoyed both of these! Alex gave up on the 39 steps; however, did enjoy Shadow of a Doubt.

"We Have Babie" e-mail from SueD

Aren't they the sweetest kittens???

From Sue "This morning we woke up to 4 new baby kittens. Thelma had her babies sometime last night in the basket on our back patio. She is just purring up a storm & very gentle with them. Looks like she will be a good mother. Thelma had them all cleaned up by the time we saw them. I can look out my patio door right into the basket. When John got home from work he took the basket with everyone in it to the barn. He set it up in there & think Thelma will feel safer."

Of course, we got an invite to see them in a few weeks!

Thelma is Honey Bunny's daughter -- so, Mrs. Mom Cat is a grandmother!!!

Uncorrected Proof

So, yeah ... I signed up for a promotion to receive an advance copy of this book ... and guess what? It came in the mail yesterday. I'm supposed to read it, answer a couple questions, and isn't that interesting????

I have not started reading ... I'm hoping I like the book. How terrible it would be to have to admit "I didn't care for it" to the author/publisher!!! Yikes.

What's Up?

Totally hilarious book. Short story with a lot of laughs - IMO

Alex started his job ... he is pretty excited about working. He rides his bicycle & I don't have to drive back/forth. At least while the weather holds. I told him I'd drive him when it is raining, etc.

My car is being worked on. I think the bill is over $1000.00 now. It was estimated at $729 before I walked in; however, with the extra brake issue we get to add on another $300. And to think I was excited about finding a $50.00 off coupon!!! Yikes. It is supposed to be ready around 5pm. sigh.

Nick took his bicycle over to the post office. It is nice when the boys ride over and pick up the mail. They usually stop at Dean's store for a beverage & snack.

What a beautiful day --- must be 65 degrees with low humidity. The cicada's sure are singing away!! They are very very loud today!!
