CYNDI: Jan wants to tell you something but we don't want to set a precedent, so she has to talk to the paws and we'll talk to you.
SAM: She would like to thank everyone for their kind birthday wishes last Friday. She wanted to get around to visit everyone who stopped by to leave a comment but there just hasn't been time.
MICAH: Yes, she has all of us us to take care of, she's trying to organize the house and she's outside every day or three trying to cut the weeds / lawn with a swing blade. Ever tried that? It's fun to watch but evidently not fun to do.
MERCI: Jan wrote on her Facebook page that she spent her day doing chores, wielding a swing blade and scrubbing the carpet.
RUSTY: Someone said she really knows how to celebrate. We have to admit we don't think she has the celebratory gene but she does know how to eat. And we have the pictures to prove it. Well, not pictures of her enjoying the food, but a memento from each restaurant.
PERCY: Jan has not been out of town for fun in years! But Sunday, Teresa (she is the biggest part of Luke the Pee Machine/now Benny's rescue story!) took her to a buffet in Griffin. Afterward they went to Big Lots and even though she didn't buy anything, Jan was thrilled to walk through a store that wasn't the local Wal-mart. Other stores were not open.
BUDDY: And Tuesday her old friend Johnnie treated her to a Mexican lunch at a favorite eating spot. Because it was for her birthday, Jan got to wear the 20-pound sombrero. Well, it isn't really 20 pounds but she said it sure is heavy!
MARCUS: Guess the thoughtless part today is Jan losing her marbles over the email confusion. And the thankful part is the kindness of our on and offline friends.
NOTE: After three weeks in Thunderbird/gmail/email hell, Jan doesn't know whether to scream, cry or give up entirely on the computer. She has way too many hours invested in trying to figure out the problem and resolve it. No matter what, Thunderbird will still freeze the whole computer if Jan tries to download email from any account - either gmail or our ISP. It started June 12 with having to upgrade to the brand new gmail butt-kissing version of Thunderbird. Webmail sucks! And trying to do the weekly interviews with emails in Thunderbird and in webmail has Jan complaining she's about to lose her last marbles. If anyone else uses Thunderbird and has a clue what might be causing the problem, please share it with us.
PS: Our old blogging friend Baby Patches of Nip & Bones is having a 4th of July blowout sale. Up to 50 items at 60% off. Most online stores we'd like to order from only accept credit cards, but Nip and Bones also accepts Paypal, so if we had any green papers to spend, we'd make Jan sprint over there and order something for us cats and dogs. (This is not an ad, just letting you know about the sale.)
