Good Afternoon Everyone,

All is calm in my part of the world, another sunny day with beautiful blue clouds, so that hopefully means no rain.

I had to meet with a tenant to pick up the rest of her rent today and did some errands while I was out. I think I am now pretty well stocked up on everything I need so want be doing much shopping in the next couple of weeks except for gas. I have about a 1/2 tank, but I'm going to let it get to about a 1/4 to see if gas prices falls anymore. It has gone from being in the $2.70's to $2.56 a gallon for unleaded since Memorial Day and it seems to drop a few cents every time I look at a station sign. They should be ashamed for gouging travelers.

I got one of my dresses and the shrug that I ordered from Coldcreek yesterday and I was very pleased with both of them. These are to wear to my class reunion in August and once I get the other dress and a long half slip I will be set. It's probably been 20 years since I have needed a long slip. I have a white one, but it's so old until I was afraid the elastic might give way on me and fall off. It seems ok, slip looks good, but didn't want to take a chance.

I didn't get any painting done yesterday. My neighbor decided to come over and visit and I couldn't motivate myself to start after she left. I knew I has to finish mowing the back yard and I finished it at dusk. It was one of the most beautiful sights, there were lightening bugs or fireflies all over my yard and they were so pretty. It looked as if the yard was covered with twinkling lights. Maybe, they have been out there several nights and I haven't noticed. Anyway, god's nature is a beautiful thing.

Shelia, so glad to see your post and to know that that knee is getting better. Also, glad you are getting back into the dating scene. It's so nice to have someone to eat out with and just talk about your day with.

Florida, thank goodness you didn't have a fender bender. That's all you need right now with all that is going on in your life.

Rinty, you deserve all the extra money you can find. I thought Kate and Meghan looked so beautiful at the Queen's birthday parade. I see the critics are already saying that her dress was inappropriate, but personally I didn't see a thing wrong with it. They all wear hats so well, I would look like a dunce were it me, I am so short.

Annex, I bought me a Big Ben alarm clock today too. I just can't hear the alarm on my phone and I've tried several different rings. I am such a deep sleeper and I am hoping that with both of them going that I want oversleep when I have somewhere to be.

Macky, six loads of laundry in one day, you have worn me out. Hope you get your files transferred over and thank goodness for a hubby who can help.

Everyone, have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
Libby gas on my side of the Mississippi in IL is anywhere from $2.95 to $3.00 per gallon and on the Missouri side, where I bought gas yesterday, was $ 2.74. It is usually about .15 to .20 cents cheaper in MO compared to IL. So you have really low gas prices where you live.

The fireflies have been in my yard for a couple of weeks. Since I live in a rural area their light show is almost magical.. I love when they come out at night twinkling.. I think it is cute that they are signally and looking for a mate.Janet Alliesmama
