Join. I have had a swallow study and Kimberley had one just recently. It was fun watching the food go down, very interesting. They gave me a drink and shortbread, something else but I forget what! It's not a hard test to have done and unlike EMG it's painless horay.
We are going out tonight to the school production of My Fair Lady. Apparently it's amazing. I will have to have a nap or I will sleep through it. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Bruce has got to have one, so hopefully it won't be too bad for him, because he has a problem with his swallowing. Have fun tonight Aly!

Joni, I used to cut myself on the food processor blades while hand drying them, until Phil told me he'd take away my toy if I didn't be more careful... That did the trick.

Aly, enjoy My Fair Lady! Sounds like fun, if a person has energy... yes, do get a good nap!

Liz, Sweetie, I'm now down the road timewise and when I think of girls and young women getting tattoos, I picture what it will look like on wrinkly skin. Please believe me when I tell you--When you are 50 or 60, you will likely care about how you look! Life does not end at 30 or 40--and I know that you do know that. I'm still wildly in love with Phil and it does matter to me how he sees me. Tatoos wouldn't help... love you, however, no matter how you're decorated, lol.

Good morning girlies and any guys that pass by! Rainy here and we sure do need it.

Aly, I love stage productions. Hope you enjoy the show.

Liz, you little rebel you! LOL! I have one tiny shamrock on my hip. My whole family does, even my Mom! We went to Ireland in the late 90s and my #2 sister does permanent make-up and gave us all our "family crest" on my #3 sisters kitchen counter prior to the trip. I told you we were all very close!

Joyce, you crack me up as usual.

Ann, you sound like a big sister. I love it.

Aww Kimberly! I've had poison ivy before and it's miserable. So sorry you've got it Toots. I didn't know you could catch it from someone else. YUCK! Take care Hon.

Yes Kimberly, do not scratch! Also, once you get it you can get it easier from then on from what I've heard. Luckily, I've only had it once. Keeping my fingers crossed I don't ever get it again! Do you have some Benedril or Calamine to take the itch out?

Oh no Kimberly! So sorry for your run in with poison ivy! That is such nasty stuff. I hope you do have some calamine or benidryl handy.

Morning ladies. I have heard of poison ivy on tv, sorry about the scratching.

Ladies I fell asleep at the show, it was awful, the show was spectacular and I kept nodding off or fighting sleep. I wanted to stand up and tell the singers to shut up and finish. So upsetting! I just can't do evening stuff at the moment at all. I took some tramadol before I went to sleep in the hope that my sore arm wouldn't wake me early again. It worked and I woke at 7 am.

Dianne, come home we miss you.

Everybody have a nice day. Looks like the rain has stopped so I might plant the polyanthus that I have got. Will brighten up the garden for winter
