I livew in my own little world

My mother-in-law celebrated her 80th birthday last week. It happened to be the same day as Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, Jim and I did not get to go celebrate with her until yesterday, a celebration that occurred at Famous Dave’s, our favorite barbecue restaurant in San Diego County.

Following are five pictures from our visit yesterday.

First up is this rooster:

That rooster crows from its spot on top of the refrigerator. I always have liked it so yesterday I took a picture of it while no one was looking. Moral: Never invite me to your house because you know I’ll have my camera with me…. snap! snap! snap!

Next up is Buddy. Looks like this:

Buddy had to go to the vet last week because he was not feeling well. The vet shaved his little tummy to do an ultrasound, and he had to have an IV, too. You can see a little shaved section on his paw where the IV was. Nothing definitive, but some antibiotics returned him to normal. The only thing that made any sense is that Buddy had been seen eating a lizard just before he got sick. Moral: DO NOT EAT LIZARDS!

Next up is a set of three sunset pictures. Sunset can be quite beautiful from their back yard in Vista because of the trees. Here they are, as well as the time they were taken:

      I’m pretty sure I don’t want to reach 80 because, at the age of 60, I already know what my body’s going to be like in 20 years, and I don’t think there’s enough pain medication in the world to keep me going happily at that point.

        Ah, but pot is getting a new lease on life. Read on Dr. Mercola that they are using it to treat Parkinsons, Tourettes and a whole host of other things. I’m older than you and hurt so bad yesterday I couldn’t lift my head. Pulled too many weeds. But I have so many projects to do I think I need to make it to 108. You have lots of pictures still to take. The heck with pain. As long as the mind still works, it’s all good. 🙂

    Loved the sunset photos and the rooster was interesting. I use to have cats….lizards are not to good for them, I think.

    Insearchofitall….how did that fat lady get in my bathroom as well?

    I am 77 and it really is o.k., so c’mon guys, hang in, you just never know what may come next!

      I’m hanging in because I was hoping that scientific research would solve a lot of ills. Unfortunately, there is a whole cult (Republicans) who don’t believe in science and are dong everything they can to prevent scientific research.
