It's time again for my annual blog featuring the goings on of me and my family. Last year, as you may remember, I adopted a skateboarding kitten. This year has got that topped with a whirlwind of family activity.
This is the first time that I have included dear J.R. in one of my updates. On Thursday he informed myself and his father that he is trekking from Houston to Phoenix on foot in search of buried treasure. X marks the spot, he says, of the exact location in the Arizona desert. He is sure to find the Titanic diamond out west, as well as a group of inquisitive aliens. (Actually, he is hoping to avoid the former.) We are all wishing him the best of luck!
In other news, my twin sister Debbie was training for a marathon when she blew out her retina on a morning jog. Ouch! All is well, however, as Debbie had surgery and is good as new. Her next project involves circuit training w/ the physical therapist she has been seeing for the last 10 years. Go Debbie!
Meanwhile, Uncle K is hiding inside his burglar bar clad home. He will not come out and insists to everyone that calls that he is actually living in Corpus Christi. This, he feels, discourages visitors. He is also in the habit of wiring small amounts of money to certain out-of-town relatives to discourage them from dropping by. I don't get it, but that's okay. Neither does anyone else.
The kitties and I are patiently awaiting invitations to visit our dear friends that live on the other side of The Woodlands. They have an entire house full of relatives staying with them for the month including several from Australia! The newest addition is just a babe named after our big sister city to the south, Houston! The kitties and I can not WAIT to meet little Houston, but, as of yet, our invitations have not arrived. Oh, well. 'Til then we continue to while the time away by sitting on our balcony, sipping dandelion tea and enjoying entertainment provided by local barn swallows. Who needs to see a cute little Australian baby named Houston anyway?
That's all the news for this year.
Happy April First Everyone! ;-D
