Well, we're not on fire here in Starkville, Ms but we do have a lot of smoke from the fires in Fla/Ga. Made the mistake of sitting outside at lunch today because it really didn't seem so bad but I was wrong! My lungs and throat have felt like they were on fire all afternoon - it doesn't help that I have asthma. I'll be driving down to Mobile tomorrow with friends to go on our cruise to Mexico, so I reckon we'll be driving into a lot of smoke down that way - glad I refilled my asthma medicine today! You can sorta see the smoke in this picture I took this afternoon.
My new niece or nephew could be here soon - they went to the hospital last night but it was a false alarm. Guess I won't be around for the birth of this one either - when my niece was born, I was at a meeting and had to come home early so I could drive over to Birmingham, Al to see her. Check out this short video clip of her - Picture dancing. When you get to youtube, I have a few other clips of her as well.

Its here....

Its time for that summer vacation - only at the beginning of the summer instead of the middle. Leave for Mexico on Sat. and come back on Thur. - cruisin with Carnival this year! Also, my sis-n-law is due June 11 but the little one could come at any time (she had the first about 3 weeks early) - hope its not while I'm on my cruise! Little Naomi will be a big sis now - she already has the baby bed in her room and refers to it as brother-sister's bed!

I'm in the grocery store today getting a prescription filled and getting a couple others things I need. I pay for it with my credit card only it says unauthorized???!!! I know there isn't a problem as I had just used it at the Dr's office today. Then I remembered that I had a voicemail from a security company about my cc - I didn't pay much attention cause I figured it was somebody thinking I was stupid enough to punch in my number for them to get. However, it was legitimate! Somebody, somewhere, somehow got my card number and was using it today - they used it at a gas station for over $170 (must be a VERY BIG car), then on to a carwash, and an electronics store...other then the gas station, they didn't spend much. Just $10 at the carwash and $10 at the electronics store. Kinda odd if you think about it! Anyway, they closed my account after allowing me to go ahead and make my purchase at the store. I'd love to know how they got my number - I've had my card the whole time and I tear up every receipt and every piece of junk mail related to cc or bank accounts.
As my bro says, Beware the gerbils!
