When I got home from Greenville Monday night, I went over to my beauty shop and fed the only cat that hangs around under my trailer. After I came back home and I started to remove the items that I had bought, from my car, my daughter noticed a car stop in front of my shop, and then take off real fast. The next thing I knew, I had a little silver and white kitten. and very friendly.
Now I really don’t appreciate this, all you are doing is giving these kittens a horrible death. When they are little like this there is a chance that someone will adopt them at the Humane Society, and Heather will pick them up. In my neighborhood we have killer dogs. Now some of you might laugh, but have you ever heard a cat being torn apart while still alive? In a 24-hour period, two of my neighbors dogs have killed four cats that I personally know of. One was on a leash and the owner let it go toward the kitten, while trying to get her unleashed dog, who was chasing it. I hit the dog in the head and got the kitten but it died, all broken. One cat was nursing five babies and they got her. Well like I said, call the Humane Society instead of me.
If these dogs get the taste of blood, what’s the chance of them getting a child. They must be hungry, also, because they come to my place and eat, and I’ve tried to be nice to them, but after these last two days I’m tired of them and I really hope the owners keep them up. Two of my other neighbors keep their dogs in pens and fences, so what’s good for one should be good for all. When I had my dog, I never let it bother the neighbors. That’s all.
Things To Do On A Cruise
Carolyn, Deloris, LuAnn, Logan, and the rest of the family just got back from the Bahamas. I’ve never been on a cruise, but they say there is a lot of stuff to do on ship. Eat, watch stage plays, eat, bingo, eat, swim, eat, movies, eat, sports, gamble, eat, etc. The reason I’ve added eat so many times is because I’ve heard there is so many different restaurants on board, and they are open all night.
Pam, Samson, and their family went to Aruba, before Samson is deployed for Kosovo. I believe a lot of Union and Lockhart National Guardsmen are going over there next week. I wish them all the luck and safety in the world.
Laura Dabbs is so happy that she will be going to the beach with her daughter camping. Don’t get me started with camping. I’ve got so much camping gear, tents, bags, cooking stuff, I need to unpack it all and check out the condition, and sell this stuff. I think there is a big tent and a two-man tent. I just don’t remember what else. My son loved to camp. I don’t know why.
Let me share something that I read that disturbed me. Microwaving. Now how many of you use tupperware or plastic bowls to warm food up? I do. The article from Redbook said that heat released some of the chemical building blocks in plastic, sending them into whatever food or drink you’re warming up. One such chemical, bisphenol A (BPA), can mimic the effects of estrogen in the body, potentially leading to premature puberty, and breast or testicular cancer. Heat food or drink in glass or ceramic. The top of my cabinet is full of Tupperware of all sizes. Look out Walmart, here I come, or I could quit cooking all together.
Chuck thinks my stove is only used a couple times a year anyway, because he only eats here on Thanksgiving and Christmas. You know, one time a friend of Chuck’s told him he was looking for a used stove that was like new, and Chuck told him I had one that was 9 yrs old and had only been cooked on four times. Honest, he said that.
I went to the Salvation Army today and bought a book on Zumba dancing. I’ve seen them do this on TV and these people talk about how much weight they lose, and they really look like they are having fun, instead of hard working exercising. So I told Diane at the SA that I was going to read the book and see if I could lose weight. I mean who wants to sweat in weather like this.
Well, if I actually try moving my hips like that, I’ll be making more trips to Dr. Bridgett Sherman, my Chiropractor. She’ll have to untwist my body. There was the day that I’d try anything, but now I am so accident prone that I don’t know what I’d break.
Thank you Barbara at Arthur State Bank, who comes to my rescue with my checking account, I’ll always lose some figure and can’t balance out. She finds it though. I told her that I had bookkeeping in high school, but it doesn’t seem to be helping me now. And Penny and I decided that neither of us will ever be able to take a vacation. You know that was the highlight of my day, visiting the nice people at Arthur State Bank, Monarch.
Did I mention that Dusty Grady has a birthday on July 18? Jimmy Vaughn on the 19th. Sonya Eaves on the 21st. On the 23rd is Ezzie Gillian. Mike O’Dell is having a birthday on the 24th of July.
Happy Anniversary to Hazel and Cecil Patterson on the 20th, and on the 25th Candice and Dustin Grady will celebrate.
Margaret Montgomery had to go to the hospital the other night, and while we were waiting in the ER for her to be checked out, we found out that Lacy Allen and Amber Boulware had their babies that day, and all are doing fine. Oh, this was Sunday, July 8.
Different Kind Of Veteran
After no one could find evidence that one of our patients was a veteran, our VA hospital sent him home. That didn’t sit well with his wife, who said she’d bring proof, “I have a photograph of him in his Army uniform!” she insisted. The next day, she came with the picture of her husband — in his Salvation Army uniform.”
If you are on Lockhart trash pickup and they are not picking it up, please call the Town Hall at 545-2103 so it can be reported to Johnson’s Sanitation. We are trying to keep up with these.
Painting And Cutting
Don’t forget that on Sunday’s Holly will be at my shop painting toenails and fingernails. Now this is not a full manicure, just painting, with fancy designs. And if we get enough requests we can change or add Saturday. Where can you get fancy feet for $5? She even make a deal if you get both hands and feet. Just drop in. We had so much fun Sunday. Oh, and I’m still doing walk-in haircuts on Sunday.
Well it’s late, so maybe I’ll have some good news next week for you, if you call and tell me. 545-6652. Goodnight.
