The shot heard round the world

Our weekend of dog/cat sitting is over.  We stayed at my daughter's house because, well, I just didn't want 3 dogs in my house.  Besides, they have a much, much larger house and the animals are accustomed to their routine.

We only encountered two problems.  We lost the cat for about 24 hours and we couldn't turn the tv on because we are electronically illiterate. My son-in-law has a computerized remote that could fly space ships.  We finally managed to get sound but no picture.  It was so hard for Ron to admit defeat.....

It is spring break here in Norman, Oklahoma.  Schools are out and the town looks deserted.  We had 80 degree weather on Friday and low 70's Saturday and then in typical Oklahoma fashion it decided to turn chilly on Sunday.

Our furnace is not working but we are trying to wait until after the summer before we replace it.  Of course if the air conditioner decides to go on the fritz we will just have to replace everything sooner than planned.

Tomorrow Ron gets his CT scan results.  We are anticipating a good report!!!!!!!!

Mike's back to his old tricks.  His nurse called me and told me he had drank 32 ounces of prune juice.  Needless to say there was a rumble heard around the world.   I went to his house and found a juice glass and marked a red line on it.  Now, that doesn't mean he won't fill it up 10 times.  I'm not sure what is causing his obsession with constipation but he's determined to stay regular.  He's calling me first thing every morning to give me the poop report.  Oh God, give me patience but hurry!

I understand totally! The only way the TV gets turned on when we are babysitting the grandkids' is when the 5 or 8 year old turns it on for us. But you survived!
