The weekend is at hand. The weather here will be wonderful.
Who could ask for more? The gas prices are lower than
they have been in months here, anywhere from 2.56
to 2.67 in our area!! AAA announced that 32 million people would
be on the roads going "somewhere" this holiday
weekend. I will be one of them. The center told us
that they do not observe that holiday so they will
be on their regular schedule. I will take mom in
and come home and prepare some yummy food
for when she gets back. We do have Saturday and
Sunday off, for that we are grateful too.
Was glad to see I could access my space this morning.
Seems some people across the country were having
a lot of trouble. MSN better get their act together or they
will lose a lot of their following here at WLS. I was asked
if I was leaving here. I won’t leave unless they make it
impossible for me to blog here. I will however always have
a blog out there if not here then at my WordPress blog.
I am enjoying catching up with everyone at FB too. It
sure is nice leaving messages for everyone fast and all
in one place. They are having troubles too and I hope
it won’t get out of hand too bad.
Not much going on here in our little neighborhood.
The groundhog is still around..his digging under
my fence is making me crazy. THE HOLES!! Baring teeth
The large house behind me is full of college men
now taking summer courses. I must say they do
"PARTY" a lot and I don’t look forward to the
noise level they make. I am hoping they take
off this weekend for other spots.
HELL HOUSE got turned in to the code inforcement
people AGAIN because the grass and weeds are now
as high as my 4-5 foot fence. LOVE my weedwacker..
it is keeping all that stuff away from our property.
It sure isn’t fun to look at it all though. I know the
groundhog is loving his digs there though.Hope
someone comes soon to take care of that mess. 
Looking into some tomato plants this weekend if
I can. I hope I can get at least one plant in a  planter
so that the groundhog can’t dig around and destroy
it. I am way behind in planting this year.. just so many
other things on the schedule.

  1. The weather has been wonderful today. I have the windows open.I wish your city would tear down that nasty house by you as groundhogs are really messy creatures.HUGS!!

  2. Gas prices are lower here too. Glad you were able to log onto spaces. Glitches I hope are over for awhile.I get a blank when it comes to writing something on FB. Hope the hell house gets torn down and the yard cleaned up. College parties, oh boy. Have a great weekend and tell us what yummy food your making.

  3. Our gas is still too high at around 2.85…I just can’t understand that however the weather here isn’t supposed to be all that great and we’re not going anywhere so I don’t mind so much. Most of our travel is later in the summer so I guess there won’t be all that much excitement until then. I share your frustration with Spaces…it seems they never get that this isn’t a way to deal with things. I get the impression that they don’t put much effort into spaces at all. Best of luck with the tomatoes my friend! Have a great weekend!

  4. We may put off that trip to the beach—I think it will be toooo crowded to be much fun—plus I don’t like the thought of the 2-hour trip there and 2 hours back. We may just stick around home with the boys! And the Chickens…Drive safe and good luck with the groundhog…

  5. Hope you have a nice Memorial Day! Be safe and stay out of the sun……… someone said something about buying gas at $2.55, well don’t come to Illinois…. out gas is at $2.80 for about a week now….????? And the best laugh is , it is supposed to rain all day Sunday and Monday….. I don’t think many will venture out and buy gas unless they really need to…. have a nice week end.

  6. I was wondering where you were! Your gas price is about like mine here. 2.55. It’s hot around here. Storms in the afternoons the past several but sunny the rest of the time. Typical Summer weather.Glad you guys, you and your mom are going to get a break and also have a little feast! As for the kids in the house..boy so I ever EVER feel your pain there. Been thru that far too many times.

  7. Our gas was 2.52 today. I can’t remember the last time it was that low. We got some tomato plants this weekend and I planted some parsley, basil, tyme, rosemary etc too and put them all in pots. I have pots sitting all over the place lol.Have a wonderful weekend Carol and tell Mom I said Hi.HugsSherry
