Have a Golden Day Sky Watch Friday
I snapped these shots a few weeks ago now and fell in love with the sheer goldeness of them. I took them in sequences, but left a few out, putting only the best ones on here. I thought they were perfect for today to wish everyone a golden day.
I certainly need one with what all has been going on with my family lately. Then having to deal with an irate, demanding cousin from out-of-town who thinks we can put a stop to my uncle going to a hospital in Birmingham! That we should tell my aunt he cannot go. Unbelieveable. My mom had already listened to her tirade earlier. Mom was supposed to be giving me another cousin's phone number to call since I have free long distance on my cell. Instead she gave me the irate cousin's number so I had to hold the phone out and away from my ear as she ranted and raved, wasting my minutes. Then she said she was worried about my mom; that she thought my mom might go crazy if my uncle went to Birmingham. That is when a side of me kicked in that has not been let out in awhile. You don't talk about my momma! I told her my mother was the strongest woman I know. She has been through a lot and survived. Not to worry about her. I will take her to see my uncle on the weekends. I am sure my tone said it all and she may not speak to me again for a couple of years, but so what? What would I do if I did not have crazy cousins? LOL Just because they are crazy doesn't make me cracy like them. Where do these people get off?
I called my mom afterwards to tell her of her error in phone numbers. At one point she was laughing at the ridiculousness of it all, but of course she apologized and I forgive her.
On a much, much happier note, I have a bit of good news to share... I will soon be selling a copy of the art work that was in the show!!!
Please continue to keep Don, my Uncle Frank (who was better and looked better yesterday) and my best friend Penny in your prayers. Update on Uncle Frank: He will be moved to UBA on Monday. It will be harder on us, but the best for him. Thank you.
Update on Don: Don went through his hide a scan test ok. He was on a metal slab for two hours waiting for the dye to go through his gall bladder. From what the technician who ran the test said and who recently had gall bladder surgery, he doesn't think it is his gall bladder which could mean even more tests. He is having an eye exam in a few minutes. He is trying to exhaust all his insurance benefits before the end of this month.
Have a great weekend. If you would like to participate in Sky Watch Friday, please go to the following...
