we tried looking out the office window, but all we saw was an eerie green sky for a couple of minutes....sadly, Peach 4 was left out of the solar eclipse...

Katie got some cool pics for me, though...Kevin is in KC helping the Wills family work on Katie's dorm room. tomorrow is move in day. her fish moved to living room today. she was going to flush them, told me I just didn't need that kind of responsibility. she is at the square for a final night. it is thundering and lightning and pouring down rain. a lot of her friends started college today. this is the week, Class of 2017. lots of sad mamas.
Katie & I watched an interesting documentary on Leith, North Dakota. scary shit. and I made her favorite: my version of chicken and noodles and mashed potatoes. had to stop by store on way home when I knew she wasn't there working anymore and I wasn't feeling very peopley. but I did it.
added this ghost town to my bucket list. on the documentary they had a city hall and town meetings trying to stop the guy who was buying up town lots and trying to take over local politics. these guys walked around town with loaded rifles. while the wife or girlfriend or whatever videotaped them....???


"This is your job right here. This is your career. There's nothing wrong with that. It's a role in society. A lot of people don't got roles. You do. But you will never be happy unless you both appreciate what you have and accept what you are."

lucky Brady, his boss is mentoring him again. God save us all. It's hard to adapt Stephen King to any screen. But they've done a hell of a job here. I couldn't of picked a better Brady. and here I am, hook, line, and sinker episode 1.

Taylore: Those pretty blue eyes just melt my ❤️

yep. they sure do...

Don't. Go. On. A. Couples. Camping. Trip. In. Australia. Ever.

a movie with 5 actors. scary as fuck. they had to spell it out for me...my imagination couldn't come up with the fuel for the truck. I almost got it, then I was like that can't be right....this is the most disturbing thing I've watched since Tusk. (shiver.) I started thinking about Human Centipede, too.....I may never sleep again. Ever.

A compound found in marijuana can treat schizophrenia as effectively as antipsychotic medications, with far fewer side effects, according to a preliminary clinical trial.

Darling it's better Down where it's wetter Take it from me ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฆ€

love this photo shoot Taylore & Kayla did with their girls in matching Little Mermaid outfits....

poor Dana. she shows up with all her maps and history books and obituaries and then the rest of the gang hurries off to do ghostly things and she has to gather her stuff and go.

no one even holds a door for her or helps her carry all that stuff back to her vehicle. does she want to be a bigger part of the team? at least let her write on that cool light up case board. I feel like I am the Dana of any investigation I might be included on. kind of lumbering around on the fringe of things, not really that big a part of the big picture....but what Dana does is important. she has the solid research for them to build their cases on. and Dana is always dressed to the nines. lacey dresses. chunky jewelry. a printed scarf wound round her neck.....no messy buns for her. she is always just so. I admire that.
and then Lorie. now, she is the psychic medium so she can't hang out at the table and find out what's what. she has to feel it for herself to prove that she's the real thing. and she always has the salts or holy water or sage or whatever she needs for any situation. that woman is P.R.E.P.A.R.E.D.

I am facebook friends with Tami. they are going through a lot right now.

and a lot of it is very very public. I feel so bad for her family. the struggles and choices they have to make. I don't know if there even is a right answer...
I am truly appalled at what people think constitutes as front page news and Facebook headliners. If I'm ashamed of anyone, it is of those people; yet I still pray that it never happens to you!

As soon as I saw you I knew a grand adventure was about to happen ๐Ÿ’• My sweet girl is 3 months old ๐Ÿ˜Š

Baby Zerelda is three months old today. She has already grown 4 inches and gained 6 pounds.
mommy & daddy are both in awe of this wonderful baby they created....as well they should be! they did an excellent job! Miss Zerelda is a joy and a delight!

so, I'm home from work and in one of my weird weepy moods....and I click on a Ghost Adventures episode about

Casa de something in Hollywood, and an artist is displaying his rather disturbing work in this abandoned building.... and he has displayed his work in other abandoned buildings....
“I believe that art can change the world. I believe that it can help create an awareness that will allow people to see the edge without having to go there.” -James Picard
this is combining 2 different worlds. I find it fascinating. wish I could've went! and the pics I took of my tv screen make this painting seem even more disturbing...


Zerelda loves coming to grandmas!

I sure love her coming over, too! Katie made it to the races.
I watched Death Tunnel.

and Sharknado Week is finally over.....

"Forgive me, Father, for I am Fin."
"As long as you have a beating heart, I'm gonna love you."
so now I make lunch....Kevin has to go to work....Katie has an invite to the races she may or may not accept....I just have feeding dogs and watering plants left on my to-do list for today...maybe I'll watch that Waverly Hills dvd? or read the other Waverly Hills book? I should probably go to store and stock up on groceries, but just not feeling it....

"Same shark, different day."

still Sharknado Week at my house......

Lucas Stevens: One of my computer-modeled scenarios was a large low-pressure cell with multiple sharknadoes. If enough of them merge, the whole storm will start to rotate.
Nova Clarke: Merging sharknadoes?
Lucas Stevens: Sharkicane.
General Gottleib: Can there be such a thing?
Lucas Stevens: I could be wrong. Bio meteorology is not really an exact science yet.
The subway worker stepping into danger in the flooded tunnels under New York: “I can’t believe I forgot my gloves again.”

"Some days I wish my job was drinking wine all day."

the last magical day of staycation.....slept in, and now on Sharknado 4 (stayed up till the wee hours watching Sharknado 3)

the class of '17 is getting ready to blow this town....

Katie: today was my last day of work at the grocery store. I've worked in this same building with the same people (Paul and Denice) since I was 16. I've got some pretty crazy stories to show for it. Thanks to everyone in town who came in over the years and told me funny stories or just showed kindness. It's been a blast. ๐Ÿ˜Š


James Markert has some other interesting novels....

he's an author from Kentucky with a history degree who is also a tennis pro!
