Yes another sticky note!
Patt has told me I can spend the money and go ahead and host my site with wordpress. But I have to wait until sometime next month. Until I decide who I'm using and when I have time then I'll be setting up another site. Until then I hope you'll visit me on wordpress.com where I'm posting for now. Go here for my where I am posting !

Even this morning I tried and couldn't post then after I signed out about 3 hours later 2 of same post were there.

Please be patient with me while I get my own site togehter. It may take a few weeks or even a month or so, then again, who knows. I've got time off coming up and I'll work on it then.

Thanks everyone! Dawn

Same blog title it's just over at wordpress too. I started playing around a few months ago when blogger started having problems and I think I like it better over there....

Now I want your opinion.... I'm having a hard time trying to decide what to do! Stay or go again...

Regular post continue below!

Thinking about it real hard....
Yes it hurts to be thinking as much as I have been. I've been going back and forth between stay with blogger move to wordpress. I don't want to move to wordpress and still miss being able to change my templet and do the things I like doing, so over the next few weeks I'm going to start looking at a place to host my site and make one more move and be done. I think if I download wordpress and host it I'll be able to do more than what I want to. It's just going to take time and right now I don't have that much time to spare, but I'm going to start working on it. So until then I'm going to use both blogs, this one and the wordpress so I can get use to it. If blogger is having problems and I can't post then I'll post on wordpress. It's the same name, instead of blogger it's wordpress.... So until then I've got a lot to figure out. I just hope it's not too hard.

I was shocked when I told Patt what I wanted to do and that it cost to host your own blog. He told me to go far it if that's what I wanted to do. Just quit moving! It'll give me something to do when he's out riding:)

Today....fingers crossed my new helmet will be here and I'm feeling better which means come Friday night I want to go out on the bike! I've got too much to do Saturday and Sunday being Father's Day I might need to go see dad sometime this weekend!

Well I'm off to call and check on the new mommy and baby, and I brought my camera with me if they feel up to company!!!

Welcom "K"

So excited to share some really wonderful news with my friends. Our friend Christy just sent me a message that their little boy "K" has made his arrival. All I know now is 7 lbs and 20 inches. They are both resting now and as soon as she feels like company I'm off to the hospital. It's just down the road from my office. I knew I should have brought my camera today!

So the group has a new member!!! And he made just in time for his mom's birthday Friday!

Guilty because your bike is blue and white???
Thanks for all the well wishes! I'm still alive! Feeling better, but I still don't have all my energy back. I did what I needed to do over the weekend and that was rest. I fought it at first. My new helmet was suppose to be in Friday (now it'll be Wednesday) and I wanted to ride this weekend. Insteed Friday night I took my meds and slept. Got up early Saturday (thanks new neighbors to be) went ahead and went to the grocery store. Came home and pretty much was lazy. During energy spurts I'd do a few things needed to be done, but pretty much took it easy. Sunday went to church had a lunch fund raiser for our youth then I was surpised, the group was going to some race track and Patt decided not to go, instead we went to the movies! Alone just the two of us. Nice surpise to spend the afternoon with Patt!

Now the real fun was what happened to Patt Saturday afternoon has now made me loose faith in our police officers. I can't have repect for somone who treated Patt the way he did. Saturday Patt and 2 other guys were riding. They were downtown, no cutting up, not spending. It is well know to be on your very best behavior in this town and Patt has been told after two tickets he'd better be good or else! The are going down a street and a police office passes them, turns around and follows them for a little while. No problem they were not doing anything wrong or so they thought. He finally stops them, then calls Patt to the back away from the other guys and this is what happened.

Officer: Why did you out run me?

Patt: I didn't out run you. When was this?

Officer: About a month ago on a rainny night.

Patt: Sir, I don't ride my bike in the rain.

Officer: Then who did you lend your bike to?

Patt: I don't lend my bike to anyone it wasn't me. I'm not the only one with a blue and white bike.

Officer: (get's ticket book out)

Patt: Why are you giving me a ticket?

Officer: Your tag is improperly displayed.

Patt: Can I go home and fix it. I've been stopped before and no one has said anything about my tag.

Officer: Don't get an attitude with me.

Patt: I'm not, but you already had me guilty when you pulled me over. I didn't out run you. I've got my endorsement, have insurance, tag in date, can't you give me a break.

Officer: I'm about you throw you in jail, then you'll have to bond out, get your bike out and still pay for the ticket.

(By now Patt does have an attitude I think)

Officer: (Gives Patt the ticket) there's a number on there if you have any questions.

Patt: I'll call and ask them if I have this taken care of will they let the ticket go.

Officer: (takes ticket back and writes NO HELP on it)

The officer now goes to our friend who's bike is out of state since last August, tag placed just like Patt's, no endoresement, and no insurance. Gives him a ticket only for the tag and endoresment and tells him in front of Patt if he gets the two things fix he'll tear the ticket up.

By now Patt just gets on his bike and leaves.

Ok my husband can be a pain in the rear end, a jerk at times, but one thing he does not do and that's lie. He's gotton two tickets one for going 68 in a 55 which on a bike is slow.....and one for doing a wheelie in town. He did it got to pay the ticket, but to get a ticket because the officer assumed he out ran him because a guy on a blue and white bike did. Wrong!

Back several, several months ago I'm on the cell phone talking to my mom and see this guy coming up and I tell mom, there's Patt, what's he doing in town. I swear this is Patt, then he gets beside me and it's NOT Patt. Now if his own wife can't tell for sure how can a cope on a dark, rainny night. Now I can tell Patt, he's the only one with a jacket like he has. But not then.

Ok it's Monday off to get some work done!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I am still sick and have not gone out and taken any pictures this week of our community. I don't have many and was looking forward to taking some pictures, but instead I've spent the week in the doctors office and in bed. This afternoon I still want to come around and see everyone's photo for today!

Until then you may want to say a little prayer for the people building next to us. There's nothing like feeling bad and being woke at at 6 a.m. to the sound of hammers and saws! I understand wanting to build your house, but do you really need to start all the noise so early????

Ok the grouch is going back to bed :)
