A little of this, a little of that!!

I tried to post earlier today and something was wrong with blogger "again" and it's gone. And being pressed for time lately it is a big inconvenience to have to redo! Arrrgh!!

I'm having great difficulty trying to book a flight to Denver for the dates I need to be there. Well, that isn't entirely true. If I don't mind spending over $500.00 for one round trip ticket I wouldn't have any problem at all. But, being of "Dutch heritage" coupled with my bank account the answer isn't hard for me to figure out. Find cheaper tickets or stay home! I was able to find one airline that will sell me a ticket for under $300.00, but I have to change planes 3 times and stay overnight in an airport in a strange city, alone. I'm finding I'm not quite as adventurous as I used to be because that has absolutely no appeal.....not even for a chance to see my family!

On to the baby robins. They have all flown away. I was on my way out the other day to take a new picture to show you all how big they had gotten and the last one was sitting on the edge of the next and when I approached, that one flew off too! : ( At least I know they all made it and my wonderful pet and companion didn't eat any of them!

The newest grandbaby is doing well. Already I can see that he has gained some weight. Big brother hasn't asked to send him back yet either, which is a real plus!

Today is my oldest sisters wedding anniversary. Forty-two years for them. That's a great accomplishment in today's times. Also the 42nd anniversary of my graduation from high school. Man, I don't remember getting THAT old!!

Tomorrow, my little 4 year old granddaughter in Kentucky is having her tonsils out. I hope she does well. I will call her momma tonight and request that she call me tomorrow after the surgery to let me know how she did.

My next post will be my One Hundredth. I will have to finish that list soon!!

I've not ever booked my own flight. The only flight I've taken was booked by my company due to it being a business trip. But, I've heard that sites like,, or are good sites to visit. You may have already done that but I thought that I would drop that in anyway. You never know.

You gave the baby Robins a nice nesting place. :) Now they are ready for the world.

I still have my tonsils and they are a pain literally! A couple of days ago I felt something strange in my throat, so I got a flashlight out to take a look. My left tonsil had white spots on it. Now those spots are gone. Go figure!

I was going to tell you the same thing firebird said about websites to find cheaper airfare. GOOD LUCK!

That's so good that all the baby birds made it off okay! :)

June 5th is my parents anniversary too! They celebrated 35 years yesterday! :)

Hey this is weird. Ijust posted something and it's gone now!

Okay - basically what I said was that Blogger has been really weird lately. I haven't been able to get to sites outside of my own for three days now. :(

Congrats on the latest addition to your family!

I remember having my tonsils out when I was 5. I remember them giving me the anesthesia...I remember my hospital room, and eating lots of ice cream and pudding; but what I don't remember any more is what a sore throat feels like. Because I never had another one again -and that, is a good thing! :)

rebecca - blogger has been acting up the last few days and it maddens me too!

cesneygirl - I booked a flight that leaves before I really wanted to and stays longer than I should, but the price was right. (Naive-no-more helped me with it! She's the best!!)

BF - I had tried most of those, but my daughter (naive-no-more) came over and helped me out. I'm going to Denver....yeeehaaa!! ;)

I love that you kept us posted on the baby robins. I bet your heart did a little leap when that last one took flight.

My fingers are crossed (making it hard to type!) that the Denver tickets come through.
