Hope everyone here has a terrific Thursday. summer

Good morning gang!

Joe, keeping you and family in our daily prayers

We're having a plumbing moment here at the household as currently half of our sewage system is backed and one bathroom sink. And we are constraining bathroom operations so that we don't have that coming back into the house eek

Just gotta keep smiling in times like these wink

Take care everyone and have a great Thump Day!

Thumping good Thursday ya'll

We are in a waiting phase at the moment. Our plumber can't get here until after lunch. I had planned to bake bread this morning but no cooking will happen in this house till we have water.

Keoki had a good night. Poor fellow does not understand why he isn't all to stand up. We are hanging in the kitchen as that is closest to the easiest door to take Keoki outside. However there is no computer.

Thinking about you and your family Joe

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

Good morning everyone! My computer is very unhappy today and I am having a hard time posting. I thought it was my internet but it's my graphics card which unfortunately is integrated. I hope it corrects itself. sad

Lotus, hugs to you and prayers and positive thoughts for your mom. hearts

soot and L4L, I sure hope the plumber can do an easy fix. It doesn't sound good. eek

Evelyne, good to see you here again. yay I do sweat but I have to really be doing something very intense. Insanity class I leave drenched. lol

I have to shut my computer down and see if it helps. It's overheating. I will run the dogs before it gets too hot. It's already 90 degrees.

See ya in a bit!
