Peek-a-boo! and other true stories....

I think it was Gill that asked where Mr. Cardinal was when I showed the picture of the female cardinal.  I had to work with this one in Picasa to make it presentable.  He would pick at the food and disappear behind that orange side of the feeder.  Then raise back up and watch me through the window.  It was just as if he was playing peek-a-boo!
I warn you this is a long post...but read on...I think you will die laughing at the last section.
So, we just got home from Lorelei's this evening. We have been over there since Tuesday. She has been sick off and on ever since she started school.  And really and truly a lot of the kids have been sick.  It seems to be normal.  But she has really had the ups and downs since Christmas.  She would seem to be over something, and then start again.

So, Sarah asks me Monday can we come over to stay with her...sometimes it happens till her dad is off when she is sick through the week.  But he was heading back to we got ready and headed over there.  Sarah had taken off half a day to get her to the doctor...they said it was viral when Sarah told them all that she had been sick...and she had talked to them on the phone on previous ocassions.

Lo had got up feeling and acting better that morn, but to Roger and I she still looked sick.  And was just not quite herself.  That night she was up during the night crying cause she felt bad...I went in there and just stayed with her a few minutes.  she just wanted to hold my hand...when she let go, I thought aha, she is back asleep.  I started to ease out of the room...she pops up and says 'Nite, nite Mamaw.  Are you really going to stay tomorrow night?  Give papaw a hug and tell him I love him.  When you go home, hug Mama Cat, Bubbie and Puss Puss and tell them that I love them and miss them".....these last were actually after I told her we were staying another night.  Such a child!

It is so long to go into, lets just say she ended up back to the Dr. on Thursday and this time she got an antibiotic and she got up back to her old self today.  Though I won't fully believe it is over till she goes more than a couple days feeling good.
Now for some laughter....the following happened just a couple of hours ago...I swear to goodness I am not making this up.

A little background is Roger takes his watch off fairly often and loses it for a short while...usually when he is working out in his shop, or sometimes when he showers.

 So tonight we were sitting here and out the corner of my eye, I saw him looking at his right wrist but I didn't think anything of it.  He looked at me and said, "Well, Rosemary, (Mary is my middle name) I have lost my watch again."   He was totally serious...and he started to get up to go look for it and says, "NO, I didn't it's right here...on my left wrist!"

Oh, how we have laughed...I can still see the look on his face.  He got up and went in the kitchen and yelled at me, Hey I found my feet--they are on the end of my legs...Hey, I bet I could find two new cars out in the garage.....and on and on.
