    July Jewels

    I'm posting late in the day and I'm afraid this one will be a quick one. I figured I could start the new thread and have it ready for the morning. Someone mentioned using the Jewel title again for July and I thought it seemed like a good idea too.

    Star, You and your dad are in my thoughts and prayers. I can imagine how difficult this must be for you and your family.

    Cyn, thanks for the gooseberrie memory. I loved it!

    Lav, Pauly, Papmom, thinking of you all and I will try to be a better poster tomorrow!

    Enjoy a peaceful, AF evening.

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    Good morning...

    How funny, we didn't even notice it was July! So, the summer is moving along. Thanks for your support regarding my Dad, it is a really tough time, and living so far away makes it even worse.

    Lav, wow, the kids are there till 10, what a long day.

    Dill, thanks for starting the thread for this month. Greatly appreciated.

    Pauly, so good to hear your daughter is doing better.

    Cyn, what a good gooseberry story, and what a cool trip. Hope you have some time to relax!

    To all, have a good day.

    Good Thursday morning friends!

    Cloudy & about to start raining here, oh well.
    Had a nice evening out with no kids, ha ha. We went out to eat then to Longwood Gardens to check out their new event 'Nightscapes'. It was interesting to stroll through the conservatory & garden paths with the light & sound additions. They also opened their new Beer Garden last night, ha ha! It was bizarre to see people walking around with a glass of beer or wine in their hands. It's all about drawing the crowds & the almighty dollar I guess.

    Star, I hope you are OK. Thinking about you & your Dad.

    Dill, thanks for getting us moved into July

    Pauly, glad to see you up & running! The further we move away from AL the more sane we become. Life will never be perfect but we sure do handle the ups & downs better with clear heads.

    Cyn, you are the only person I know who has a fond memory of gooseberries, ha ha!
    YB had some planted around here but he got rid of them. I never knew they had so many thorns & complained when I was getting my hands & wrists scratched reaching through to get to an outside water spigot. I hope you get some quiet time this week.

    Hi there Papmom!

    I'm going to make a run to Curves then return here for some much needed cleaning & organizing.
    Have a great AF day everyone!

    Star, I think part of the reason we didn't notice that July was upon us is because June felt somehow like it never got started! It's been so rainy, cool and gloomy this past June. I hope July brings better weather.

    Lav, your evening at Longwood sounds super nice. I even think the Beer Garden sounds like a very nice idea, at least for the normals! There was a time long ago that I could have enjoyed an evening like that and stopped at just one.

    Hiya Pauly, Papmom, and Cyn.

    Mr. D and I took a drive to a place that sells fireworks. It's been years since we have done anything like that! I hope we have some nice weather tomorrow night when our son and grandkids will be here. No drinking for any of us!

    Good morning...

    We are off to the zoo today, with grandson and a few others. No rain forcast, but woke up this morning to rain, so hope our plans don't have to change!

    Lav, what a lovely night. I have noticed there are beer gardens, bars, almost everywhere. Lots of people choose NOT to drink also, but we don't seem to notice them as much. The gardens sound so lovely. I am hoping today to go to the gardens at this zoo and the butterfly conservatory. The environments are magical, liking being in a fairy tale.

    Dill, how fun, fireworks. They have been blowing them off around here for two weeks straight. Luckily I can fall asleep easily. So nice to have your family celebration for the 4th. The concert we are attending tomorrow will probably have alcohol, but I am planning on straight up Coke or Pepsi, my drink of choice.

    Hello to Pauly, Cyn, Pap, have a great day.

    Good morning friends!

    I do believe I see some sunshine, how nice

    Dill, I hope your family celebration goes well & the fireworks thrill the kids & adults alike!
    I have not been able to coordinate kids & grandkids so I currently have nothing planned this weekend. Maybe I'll get a chance to catch up on some outside work.

    Star, a trip to the zoo sounds perfect, have a great time with your family

    Nothing else happening here for now so I'll get myself to Curves.
    Greetings to Cyn, Pauly & Papmom.
    Have a great AF day everyone!

    Jumping in with a super-quick hello. Will come back later today - just want to say hi, and thanks to Dill for getting us started. Babysitting a sick dog, so have to stay close and watch him carefully -- more soon. Cheers -
