Pics of the grandpups...


 As some of you may know, we stayed at our daughters last week because she was working long hours.  So we were there till the dogs did not have to be boarded.

I did not take but 4 or 5 photos...I do not know why.  Copper was his usual cute self.

Sometimes annoying...but Delta just ignores him for the most part.  I don't think I saw her put him in his place one time...though  she does sometimes.

I am waiting on a package that is being delivered by FedEX and am wondering will it ever get here.  It was supposed to be delivered Wed, but never showed up.  Then yesterday all day it said delievery pending, till around dark, then it said it was scheduled for today.  And it still has not shown up and I don't expect it to.  I see the guys go flying by, and suspect they might actually have it, but I don't think they are capable of getting it here.  But I hope I am wrong.  I keep going and looking to see if it might possibly be on the porch, but so far, no luck at all.

When I got my first Juki several years ago, they were the first to attempt to deliver it.  I saw the kid go flying this way, then he went flying back by...Roger ran out to the road and waved both arms...but the kid did not see him.  I kept checking till it said it had been delivered.  I think I first called Fed Ex and then the place I bought it from.  

The kid came by...he had delivered it one street over.  Keep in mind that this was late afternoon when it happened.  He delivered it one street over.  And he went back to retrieve it and they said they never got it...that it must have been stolen.  To this day I think it was them that stole it.  I even talked to the police and told them someone had signed my name.  They were not interested.

The kid tried to talk me into not saying anything..said he would have to pay for it.  I told him I could not afford to take that kind of loss.  I don't know what ever happened...but the replacement machine was sent by UPS.  And first they sent me the wrong machine, but I had UPS return it to them...and they sent the right one.  (There were two versions of the machine...one had all the extra feet, etc)  And I could see why they sent the cheaper version cause I had haggled the price down to normal asking price for the cheaper version.

Anyway, we have one Fed Ex guy that is really good...but the guys I am seeing this week are not him.  So I am to the point where if I order something, I feel like asking what service they use.

Another Lorelei image....


 Just have to show this one...another beautiful image from Lorelei.  Not sure what these are...I did not think to ask her if she knew the name.

We had a lot of rain night before last...the ground is saturated.  There are a few leaves turning, but still a long way to go before there are any beauties.  I am in hopes that we don't keep getting rain that knocks them off before they turn.

Roger was scheduled for an echocardiogram and a nuclear stress test this afternoon.  Every time the phone rang from the hospital, I expected it to be cancelled.  We were about to walk out the door when they called and the stress test was cancelled because the machine was down.  I felt like a bird that had been set free.   

We went on and got the electrocardiogram...we were not told the results.  But I was even happier that the nuclear stress test was cancelled because I think it would have been too hard on Roger.  

I am so tired this night...I may actually make it to bed by midnight...

Lorelei photos...

 We are currently dogsitting for our older daughter...Lorelei came to visit last night and she got to showing me her photos.  She reminds me of  the Madsnapper.  


Keep in mind she was just clicking with her phone...I think these first three were at night in her room.  All she had was a little light...nothing special at all.  She was supposed to photograph it and send it to me.  I will remind her later.


I really think she has an eye for photography.

I am loving these....but then, look at the one below...

There is another one of this 'whatever it is' type of bee/wasp that I am going to put on my other blog in a few days....as well as some flowers I have not got over to my computer yet. So, do you think she is a budding photographer or what?
