Happy Fourth of July!!!

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. Erma Bombeck

My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy! Thomas Jefferson

Do you think I have enough Icon's up above for the Fourth!! I picked out a couple and couldn't stop!!
It turned out that it was a good thing I took a little break! But I have missed you all !!

Nancy's side started hurting a week ago tomorrow and we took her to the Dr on Tuesday, who thought she had a little pneumonia and he sent us to the specialist yesterday. Dr. Clark said Nancy didn't have pneumonia she has pleurisy instead. He said to continue her oxygen at night. He also wanted her to have some kind of a deal with a little ball in it that she blows into a container and tries to get the ball to the top. He said she is taking shallow breaths. She is to continue on her antibiotics that the our Dr gave her.

I want to Thank every one who has lifted us to our Heavenly Father in Prayer! I appreciate your taking time to pray for her and for me too!!

We didn't have electricity last night from about 8:30 until about 2:00 in the morning. It never got to hot in the house! Nancy has a Smiley Face lamp thing (you press the light on the smiley face and it comes on) and we had batteries!! I think my Grand daughter Sarah gave her this, one year for her birthday! It sure came in handy because when we did go to bed she didn't flip out, we just left it on until the lights came back on!! Sarah you did good!!!
The reason the lights went out was because we had a terrible storm last night!! I am happy to say we don't have to go to any Dr for a week!!
My daughter Carrie is on her way here from Guadalajara Mexico where she lives and is a missionary. I am so looking forward to seeing her again!! She always goes to Sonic and gets Nancy the Big Route 44 drinks she loves!! She should be here tomorrow evening for our town's fire works display!

I don't know what other plans we have so far but I am sure it will involve having some good food sometime tomorrow!!
I hope you all have a very SAFE and Happy Fourth!!!!

Happy Happy 4th of July dear Grams!!

Enjoy your holiday and hope that Karen gets her beloved drink. Sounds yummy to me too.

It's raining here!!! FINALLY...we've been in a long drought for months...Houston got the rains, but they never came our way. 'cept for this morning.

Hope the news continues to be better for you all. Take care and keep Karen at her lung exercises. I've had to do that with the little instrument I know just how hard it is to get the ball up to the top!!!
