She was born at 10am EST. 7 lbs. 6 ounces, 19.5 inches. Mother and baby are doing great, Daddy, too!
We got the call at 2:30 am, left immediately, as did John and Deanna. We arrived before she was born and I got to spend some time with Lindsay.
Yes, I’m crying. I’ve cried all morning. Geez, and I thought I wasn’t hormonal anymore!
We haven’t seen her yet, Ry is sending us pictures from the delivery room.
Just wanted you to all see this precious little girl…

Ya, I know the picture is dark, it’s nighttime in Heavensville. I took the dogs out to potty, this is the first night the pumpkins were lit. Mags was brave, she woofed at them and went inside. If you look closely at the left side of the picture, you can barely see her little face peering out the door.
Mollie however was terrified of them. They scared the beejus out of the poor little dog. She ran for the garage, and I had to pick her up and carry her past them.
Dogs are so funny. My life would be so lost without them…

I saw this YouTube video of Kathy Lee Gifford talking about Rapid Lash. Then I started reading reviews, sure enough, people actually say this stuff works. Have any of you tried it? If anybody knows about this product, please comment… I wonder if it’s safe?
And finally, the video, and yes, I know she’s annoying as hell, just get over it and watch this..
Trisher and Hooterville went with me to Mule Day last Saturday.
It was a brisk fall day and we had a great time, watched the parade, spent time with Ang, saw her girls, and yep, we ended up in a corn field.
It’s a long story, and no, there was no alcohol involved, seriously.
We may be old, but we’re still a good time!!!
She would have been ninety-one today. She’s on my mind so often these days, as we await the arrival of this precious grandchild. She would have been so excited, she loved little children so much.
I’m cleaning closets, trying to keep my mind occupied, jumping every time the phone rings, it’s an exciting time in Heavensville this week, ladies…

We were on our picnic Thursday, everybody had to pee, so they traipsed down the path and around the bend, in search of the nasty outhouse. Everybody but me, no way I was going to trek thru the forest to get to that icky bathroom.
I’m a country girl after all, I was raised with an outhouse, remember. So while they were all hiking to the nearest facilities, yours truly just peed in the woods. There is nothing like a fall breeze on your nether regions, ladies, when you’re outside and nature calls. Jean is the only one that gets it, she, too enjoys the breeze on her butt, and has a colorful history of relieving herself in the cemetery.
Trish is so anal, no pun intended, that she brought along her own roll of toilet paper in case the “facilities” didn’t have any. Geezy Pete, do these women not know how to rough it?
As they were coming back, V asked me if I didn’t need to “go” and when I told her I “did,” and pointed over there, under the tree, you should have seen the look on her face. She had this shocked, rather horrified expression, it was so cute… I just sat there and cracked up.
Not my first rodeo in the woods, nor my last, I’m sure. Nope, not by a long shot. When in Rome….
