It really was great Lisa. How's your brother been btw?

Hehe "never noticed the thumbs"?!! That pic was taken just moments after your intently quantifying gaze left my hand, having been placed on your shoulder just a second before!

Pfffft never noticed.


:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Well, I think our meeting pre-dated a lot of things, one included the GREAT THUMB DEBATE. But....perhaps it did not preclude my glimpse at your "large" hands tightly wrapped around... that coffee cup. :P :D

Brother is still in Shanghai, soon to return stateside. How's life in CA?

My oldest had those shoes on Ptaum's feet. They made his size 12s look larger. They were huge shoes.

Ouch . ...Kairreign trying to allhatnocattle me eh? [forehead smacking not producing right phrase]

They are distinctive but it would've'adto've been 5 yrs ago. Avia stopped making bball shoes in '07. It was sad. I liked them enough I tallied up 9 Big5Sports stores in 3 states to stock up. Still have new all-blacks & all-whites.
Hey shroomie maybe we've both been at the one in Sparks ....on 2nd thought u may never have a reason to go to Sparks anyway - if you're heading to the city what's Sparks got that Reno doesn't? (besides best discount brandname sports shoes store of course ;) )

Like Clint Eastwood in High Plains Drifter?


Notsomuch. ... . ...I was more inspired by the countless '55 Chevys.. . . B) ....man, they were everywhere..... . .. pristine, whizzing by, sounding their great horns....like stepping back in time. In all the music surrounding us, as well -- from Nat King Cole to John Lennon...... .and everything encompassed in a curling haze of maraca beat and fine cigar smoke... . . ..yup, it all begs to be recorded. Hemingway knew this, and I do hope to return there someday to get things down on canvas as he did on notepaper, napkins, envelopes, chequebooks.. . .. . ..:)

Could we get a tricked out bus, like a rock star? With all our various diet issues, it would be good to have the ability to cook.


Well if we're gonna go that far, might as well have a personal chef on board ;)

Hello Dearest psillies,

Boy have I ever missed you! It's nice to be coming back from the almost dead (don't mean to sound over dramatic). As I mentioned I lost almost two weeks of my life. Superman was amazing. Right now he's "the boss of me" and I'm gladly letting him. I still have memory loss, tremors, and depression (though I feel blessed to have super Rob and all my friends - psillies and those fro home). I have a new therapist who also is licensed to adjust and give out prescriptions. She also works with my neurologist.My new goal is to get well enough to make a trip to NJ in July.

My brother flew up to see me Thursday through Saturday and it meant a lot. On Friday night we took Tony and 4 of his friends to celebrate Tony's 20th BD. We we to Fire and Ice (a great restaurant for us gluten-free'ers). The kids think we're the cool parents so they let rip. At the restaurant one of the kids suggested two games - one was most memorable thing about Tony. Rob's was watching him come out of me. My brother's was watching Tony pee in Rob's face. Mine was him vomiting green eggs & ham on Dr. Seuss day. I'm forgetting what most of the kids said. I think a few were about his my little pony collection. He was very scruffy with a long beard and hair (just the type I was attracted to in college). He has to shave it all off and get a good haircut before he can start working for the public defender. He already started working at Providence Hospital. I'm very proud of him.

Time to hit the sack. Again, I've missed you more than I can say.


Love & HugsPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

All right, I want to know which one of you northern psilly peeps stole our southern summer :ph34r: Here we are, into our second day of autumn already and I have barely got out of my sweats for more than a couple of days. And the good folks of Oz are sending us a "storm bomb" for tomorrow with winds and rain, which is all I got on my mini-vacation to Wellington last week too. I know it wasn't you pholks who had all the psnaough, or even the tornadoes, but SOMEBODY DONE IT!!! You had best turn on a northern summer for me.:rolleyes:

Us folks with the tornados have been having a lovely, warm winter.....hence the tornados. It was 70 F today here in KC. Perhaps you should have wintered in Kansas?

It has been unusually mild here as well. Very little snow, and what we have had did not last a day on the ground. Folks have reported seeing robins. Our tulips are coming up. It is still THREE WEEKS until spring. :huh:

Yup, Ottawa, too... . . . ...our big national winter festival, Winterlude, that features all kinds of concerts, ice sculptures and sporting events along the Rideau Canal (longest skating rink in the world!) was jeopardized due to mild weather and rain throughout the two weeks...

What in hell? :huh:

I'll take it, though....above zero throughout January and February is good for me....

70 F yesterday. Snow that didn't stick this a.m. Beautiful & sunny now.

Robot not doing well. Lots of the kids, including M, are having a good time dancing and playing some sort of tag games. Right now M is trying to trade a silver cowboy hat for a girl from another team's pink hat.

Weather got pretty intense here. Funnel clouds spotted. Of course the timing was perfect . . . tornado sirens went off about 10 minutes before the elementary school was suppose to get out. (Better than 5 minutes after when the kids would have already been on the buses.) They held all the kids until the all-clear was given. Skeeter was about 50 minutes late getting home. All-clear was given before the Middle School was suppose to get out, but they use the same buses/drivers as the Elementary School (after all of the E-school kids are delivered home). So Smackl was about 45 minutes late getting home as well. My friend was volunteering at the Middle School when the bad weather hit, she said they had the kids in "safety position" . . . on the floor in the halls (no windows),crouched down, heads down and covered with their arms.

Sunshine and blue skies now . . . suppose to get bad again later.
