My First BDay Present

A HUGH COCOANUT CAKE from Sam's Club...
MY FAVORITE!!

Thanks Lynn and Doug!!!

Shall I eat it TONITE???

Skinny Girl

Sorry Gail, but I had to dump the bottle of SKINNY GIRL MARGARITA DOWN the drain.

Gail bought it a few weeks ago on her last visit here.

We both agreed us PLEASING PLUMP girls were not made to drink it.

I prefer Gail's recipe of limeade, beer and tequila.

In fact I might make a pitcher RIGHT NOW!!

Best Laid Plan

The plan I went with today turned out PERFECT.

I left home at 7:01 and was in Rehoboth by 9:30 and on the beach by 10:00.

I sat on the beach reading and even took a snooze until 1:00.

Went back to the beach house and did my chores.

At 2:30 I was eating my lunch at Nicoboli's, then walked up to the boardwalk to get Lynn some CANDIED APPLES. No one had the REAL candied apples so I bought her a chocolate and a caramel with nuts. She seemed happy with them.

Drove into the driveway at 6:00pm.

PERFECT DAY!!
School tomorrow, Thursday and Friday!!!

More Birthday Pixs

Nancy just sent me a few more BIRTHDAY PIXS.

LOOKING GOOD!!

Last of Irene

She left us a PUDDLE!!

Wingate Icon Falls to IRENE

Yes, I am sure you all recognize the Wingate Icon that was destroyed by Irene.

It was is one of the only disasters that occurred during the storm.

Sucked Dry

Bill and I never seen the creek sucked this dry by the tide.

Great Morning in Bishops Head

Look at the BEAUTIFUL Bishops Head BLUE SKY!!!

It is so COOL and CLEAN outside this morning.

If you look close in the front of Ms. Dora's Yellow Rose plant, you will see a BUD!!

She is happy the storm passed her by!!

GOOD MORNING MS. DORA!!

Irene is But A Twinkle In My Eye

and a PAIN in my BUTT!
But we played her game
VERY WELL!

We were PREPARED
and she is gone.

THANK GOODNESS
no damage down here
WHATSOEVER!

One of my painted windows got broke
but that is NOTHING
just will give me something to do

THANX to EVERYONE
who was CONCERNED!

Lisa Suzanne has power by no TV
so she will LIVE

Lisa Marie has NO POWER
but she also will LIVE
She just needs to call me when she can!



There Are Always

SWAMP MONSTERS
coming and going

OOPS!
that's not a MONSTER
that's BILL!!!

The Morning After

We just got back from a short walk to Ms Elaine's.
She went to Cambridge to ride out the storm with her son.

We didn't see any damage and everyone we talked to (everyone stops to talk) did well.

NOW we have a HIGH TIDE this afternoon and the wind is NOT cooperating this time.

So we have one more chance for Irene to get us!!

Blue Skies

Blowing in!!
Still windy
Going for a walk

P.S.

I found this refugee on the porch last night and he was still there this morning.

I am sure he is from the HOUSE IF SHEBA!!

Lisa Marie will understand.

8:15 am Sunday

Very windy
And still raining pretty good.

This was nothing that were we expecting. That PUSH TIDE was with us.

I only saw one of my windows that got broke as any damage at all.

I talked to Lisa this morning they gave power but no TV so they are good.

Called Eric but they were still in bed so I told them to call me later.

5:00am Sunday

Very very windy
No rain
No water

Haven't heard from Lisa and Eric up in the Big cities.

Will try and call them a little later. Worried about their power.

Afraid everyone worried about us Down here instead of all if you in the cities.

The wind is howling but it is high up in the atmosphere
That is very strange.

It was high tide about an hour ago and we are good.
Water is up a little.

We still have power/tv and Internet.

Rehoboth bring hit right now.

Still worried about the kids in Washington and Baltimore in regards to them having power.

Has anyone heard??

11:00pm

Still raining but no real wind. Yard still not covered with water but we still gave all night and another high tide.

I told Bill last night I wasn't afraid of the wind but water seeping into the house would stress me.

So fa
So good

But if you look at the map the orange will swing around tonite.

Everyone is asking about my new bridge.
It's GREAT!!
THANX LUCAS!!

3:00

Getting Ready got Irene

We have been working to get ready for the storm.

Bill's car is in Cambridge at a friends house.

We have a generator to keep fridge going if no power. Can cook on grill.

If we have to leave we will be at a friends house in Cambridge.

Don't forget we have a land line attached to an old fashion phone, so as long as the phone lines don't go down we can call out.

Not concerned about wind, just the water rushing up the bay.

We can always go upstairs if water comes in. Most people don't have that option.

We are more worried about all of you in the city with no power.

Everyone be careful.

Hurricanes and EARTHQUAKES???

The house shook...
A LOT!!!
I thought the back pillar of the house was falling down
I went outside

My dad in Uniontown said  
they felt it too!

VERY INTERESTING!!!

SAY IT ISN'T SO...

An updated forecast released Tuesday morning also showed that Irene could move into the Chesapeake Bay by Sunday at hurricane strength. That latest model showed Irene making landfall along the North Carolina coast. However, because the storm is still days away from the U.S., some models also show Irene remaining offshore along the East Coast.

More BIRTHDAY PIXS

These Pixs are from Lisa Marie's camera.

I love the STACK 'O KIDS
And Brady's MAN BAG.
