This is Dyan and Sandie. Dylan has discovered the joys of taking pictures using his grandma's cell phone...or anyone's cell phone, it really doesn't matter. Dylan will be 3 years old on Friday and he invited his Papaw and I to his "pizza party." His mom kept telling him that it's not a "pizza party" but a Birthday Party.
(L-R) Valerie, Erica, Kyra, Sandie, Dylan, Jimmy, Suzanne is somewhere out of sight and I'm taking the picture.
A favorite spot of most kids, but Dylan doesn't like being in the hammock by himself. I think it's just too shaky for him and he feels like he's going to fall out of it. Here he is with his mom Erica.
Giving orders as usual. I think he's telling me to stop taking his picture.
While Dylan swings in the hammock with anyone who is willing, Jimmy is taking full advantage of holding sweet little Kyra all he can. Kyra doesn't like being put down and we know why...too many people are willing to cuddle her in their laps all day long. Erica works in a daycare and Kyra is used to being carried around by the staff and when she comes home there's Daddy, grandma, Aunt Val, and a couple grandpa's & grandma's and some great grandparents as well.
This is her way of telling me to stop taking so many pictures of her.
Yesterday I told you that Jimmy took my bike in to have a slow leak repaired and this is what was in my back tire. I'm glad they found the problem and repaired it. I sure would hate to be on the road to visit Motherkitty, Tomas & Kitten Yarn and have to make an unscheduled stop on some lonely highway. As far as I know we're still coming to visit next week for a few days and I'm sure looking forward to seeing everyone again and jumping into that beautiful blue pool with that "hunky pool man."

Reva's dad was hospitalized on Friday and had surgery last Monday. He had a stone blocking his common bile duct. Once that was removed he seems to be doing fine and getting better. Hopefully he won't be in the hospital much longer. Reva's mom is staying with them at the cabin and they're making their daily journeys to the hospital from there. If all goes well with Reva's dad they still plan on visiting next week. We've all been looking forward to our trip with much anticipation.

Thank goodness blogger has that new "Draft autosave," for the posts we're working on, because I just lost my post and was certainly relieved when I found it all there and intact. What a relief...WHEW! I don't compose my posts ahead of time...I sort of ad-lib as I go along, so when I used to lose them I had to start over from scratch and then it wasn't fun anymore.
I went to the sleep disorder doctor yesterday....she & her husband both run the sleep clinic. She stays in the office and I've only seen him when he came in to read my sleep study tests each time I was there and of course he also went over my results with me.
She told me yesterday that I had already lost 10 pounds since I began using the breathing machine at night and if I would really try, I could lose more. I wasn't aware that I had lost any weight until she told me. I'm too heavy for 10 pounds to even be noticeable. My blood pressure was also way down and she said that it was because my heart was no longer being stressed by me not getting enough air in my lungs at night. So that was really some good news to hear and I'm really pleased with my progress.
It rained for about 3 minutes yesterday and it's looked like rain all day today with the skies alternating from fluffy white clouds and blue shies to black looking stormy clouds, but no rain. I guess I should be thankful for the little rain we got yesterday and count my blessings,
Jimmy has been patiently waiting for me to finish my post so we can go eat supper. Now the choices begin...where to eat today?
