A QUIET & RELAXING BACKYARD CAMPFIRE THIS AFTERNOON
It was the best sleep I have had in years & years & years. After downing my little Dimetapp codeine cocktail last night I went to bed shortly after 10. Despite a short pit stop somewhere in the pre-dawn hours I slept right through to morning. If I hadn't lost the keys to the Jeep I might even still be sleeping but in my dream world I was in the middle of a busy big city intersection trying to find my keys while cars all around were honking uncontrollably. No wonder I woke up with a start at 5:30 this morning. What a huge bonus it was to have actually had a good night's sleep for a change. Made me feel like a new person this morning.
My energy lasted long enough this morning to get the doggy guys all the way around the pine trail, get the grass cut, pull some weeds & repair an electrical cord in the carport. By early afternoon I was back in my recliner. I have one anti-biotic pill left for Saturday so hopefully that will be the magic bullet that turns this thing around.

Have been having some strange happenings on my side bar over the past couple weeks with things mysteriously disappearing. This morning I noticed KAREN IN THE WOODS had vanished off our 'Blogs We Follow' list. I have re-added Karen & I see where they are just getting into the fine points of, 'Toad Towing' for the first time.
JERRY & SUZY may be in California at the moment but big winds tore into their Escapee Park back in Benson Arizona this week doing some damage to their place & others!!
Kelly has had a difficult week in Spencerport & will be returning home tomorrow afternoon. One day to rest up & then it's back to her very busy Deer Park Lodge job. The latter part of August has turned out to be kind of difficult for us but at least we are heading into the all round best time of the year. Did you realize Christmas Day is only 4 months from yesterday. I wonder where we will all be by then................................
