August 18, 2011 - Recent Happenings



We went to see Lola today.

Our new "granddaughter" is adorable. She's a tiny one, but a little butterball. She was ready for her bottle, and only interested in sucking. First she headed right down the front of my shirt, but I got her before she hit her target. Then she latched on to my chin. I finally got her to settle with sucking on my fingers.

When we got back home, my husband looked at me and said "What in hell happened to your chin?" I asked why and he told me to go look in the mirror.

I have a dark colored hickey on my chin, as big around as a nickel!!! No, I'm not going to show it to you.

On the home front, I went to the doctor yesterday, after having all my lab work done a couple of weeks ago. The doctor looked everything over, then informed me I was "incredibly healthy for a 72-year old". It looks like I might be around for a while longer.

  1. Glad you had some puppy time, even if it left a mark LOL! And congrats on that physical, I'm sure you'll be around for many years to come! You knew this already though, that's why you dish out your gardening advice and wisdom on an as-needed basis, right? LOL

  2. yep, OK Granny....I guess that's your hickey story and I bet your sticking to it! Does Frank know about this :)

  3. Erin, the nurse wanted me to take home a pamphlet on the elderly and falls. I challenged her to a hill climb, and she just smiled and put the pamphlet back. It was rather sad that the lady who came out as I was going in was probably my age, and had to use a walker.

    Oh, Robin, just change "she" to "he" and "her" to "him" and see what fun Frank and I could have had LOL!!!

  5. I'm agreeing with Robin, and I've said it before "your bad to the bone" thinking we would fall for that story about a "Puppy hickey" umm! think again girly. He must have been old and blind to miss the mark!

  8. @Ginny, That Granny is something I'll tell ya! Do you know about Frank?? Do you think I will get as bad as Granny when I'm as old as her????

  9. LOL, APG, I won't even look in the mirror! You know those big blackish spots old people get when they're on blood thinners? That's exactly what it looks like. My son did that to his boy (grandson Kevin) a couple of weeks ago, by grabbing his chin and squeezing. They were playing, but I didn't think it was very funny. Now I have a black chin too! I told my son I was going to sue Lola ;-)

    ********
    Robin, I tried to explain Frank to Ginny, but I don't think she believes a word of it!

  10. Granny, you can't sue a little doggie right after your doctor totally discredited the option of elder abuse! ;) hehehee

  12. Thank you, Robbie. I always enjoy my visits to your beautiful garden. I wonder why you can't comment? Don't you see the same comment box at the bottom that I do?

  13. Robin, granny tried to pass that "excuse" to me, but I know you don't make those kind of mistakes..and I will pray that your age doesn't affect your behavior to be as bad as granny because "granny is bad to the bone".

  16. After reading that dialogue between you and Robin and Ginny, I'm completely tongue tied.

  17. Ah, Jody, someday I'll tell you all about Frank. Let it suffice to say my kids read the comments too ;-)

    It's all in fun.

  19. Hmm puppy chin hickie. Good to hear you're healthy! More people should garden

  20. Yes, I do see the same comment box at the bottom , but everytime I try it it does not work. Do you have any idea. I'll check it out and let you know later...:-)
    My middle daughter use to rescue dogs in high school. I ended up with an extra dog/cat around my house. She is moved out now after college, but I call those dogs my "grand doggies"....
    I can not believe you are 72 adn do all that gardening of food! Working out there does keep you healthy!

  21. Glad you are healthy and going to be around for awhile Granny!! I still have lots of questions for you!

    P.S. Made your salsa last week-end with a few variations (5 different kinds of peppers!)and it came out great. Canned for the very first time in my 59 years.

  22. You are a such a hoot! Glad you had a great check up and a clean bill of health for yet another year. It's amazing how good for the inside of us humans - a garden outside can be!

  23. Puppy breath. *Sigh* Such sweetness! I miss my pup. It will be years before we can get another. Make sure you post updates on her growth.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jody, you just listen to old Granny. Robin and Ginny are just wicked! ;-)

    ********
    David, I agree. What surprised me was that I was low on Vitamin D, so will have to supplement. As much as I'm out in the sun? You'd think I would be on D overload!

    ********
    Robbie, if I could get away with it, I'd probably be a puppy hoarder! I love my two, and have never regretted getting a brother and sister. They bring so much joy and love, and so many smiles to this house. I love it when my kids bring their dogs to visit, too. Max, Jake and Kobe are all such sweet dogs, and now we can enjoy little Lola too.

    ********
    Spiderjohn, good for you! It's never too late to start. I have a windowsill full of tomatoes today, maybe I'll get enough for a batch of salsa yet!

    ********
    Kitsap, yes....this year's garden wasn't the death of me after all, even though I've been telling everyone it would be ;-) It looks like I'll still be around for our lunch date :-) If it's on the 28th though, let me know right away as that's when I have to go back for the redo on the blood work, so I'd have to change my appointment date.

    ********
    Barbie, you and me both! She has the most precious face, I just wish she'd eaten before I held her, I wanted to cuddle and she was having none of that. We have no idea what breed(s) she is.

  25. LOL LOL LOL! That is hilarious!! It's a good thing (for once) you aren't close by.. I know me, and I KNOW I would bust out laughing everytime I looked at you and your hickey chin. *snickering..* That's pretty funny! Has it subsided yet?

    *ducking .. and running... wait.. I'm too dizzy to run. But I can fall real good!*

  26. Wendy, you just stop it! It's not nice to laugh at Granny's puppy hickey!!! ;-)

    It's still there, but faded to pink. At least I can hide it with cover stick now :-)
