Fashion Jewelry Designers

Don't you just hate it when you go somewhere and all the women are wearing the same jewelry you just bought? I know I do not like to look like a copycat of everyone else. So I got on the internet and I found fashion jewelry designers that have been designing beautiful jewelry since l971. They have the most gorgeous bracelets and you can get necklace and earrings to match. They do not sell their jewelry in retail stores so you know you will have a unique piece or pieces of jewelry when you order from them. Not only that but they check it twice before sending it to you to be sure it is perfect. I feel secure in knowing that.

More Great Grandchildren on the Way

Little Emry is going to have a new little brother or sister around Dec. 3 and his cousin Kaelyn is also going to have a new little brother or sister around Nov. 30. This is the second time the father of Emry and the mother of Kaelyn, who are twins, are going to make their folks double grandparents for the second time. This is really something isn't it? Kaelyn looks pretty happy in this picture doesn't she?

Broken Foot

Our little great grandson broke his foot at the swimming pool. It sounded like kind of a freak happening but feel sorry for the little guy. He is always so smiley and I guess it wasn't long and he was running around on the foot. That's kids for you. It hurt awful at first but he overcame it and kids heal fast too.

Happy 30th Anniversary

One of our youngest daughters and her husband are celebrating their 30th anniversary today. Congratulations to them. They have a wonderful family of three children and two grandchildren and two grandchildren on the way this winter. We are so proud of all our children as they all have passed the 25th anniversary mark and are on their way to their 50th now. God has blessed them all and us too.


My beauty operator called yesterday and asked if I could come today for my haircut. I took the appointment in a New York minute. I have short curly hair and it grows out so fast. I have so many things to do tomorrow that this worked out really good. She was even surprised at how much my hair had grown.

My husband is having his hair cut there too now as his barber is taking radiation treatments for cancer. I see lots more men in the beauty shop getting haircuts than ever before. I know they really miss their regular barber as he was a laugh a minutes, always telling jokes.

Mexican Supper

Some very good friends from church are waiting for my husband to get his appetite back so that they can bring us a Mexican supper. We have a new restaurant in town and they just love it. It won't be long now, I think, and they will be able to do just that and bring the Mexican food. We love Mexican. It is better than steaks to us. So many are crazy for Chinese but give us Mexican anytime.

Fisherman Hooks Rusted Test Missile

In Florida, a commercial fisherman unveiled a curious catch when he returned from an expedition through the Gulf of Mexico this week. It was a corroded missile fired from an F-15 fighter jet. Now wouldn't that be something to pull in?

He hooked the missile about 50 miles off the Panhandle town of Panama City and kept it on his boat for 10 days. He had hoped to keep it as a souvenir, but took precautions because he didn't know if it was live. He kept it cool, he said by packing it in ice.

Later he found out it was a telemetry missile that carried no explosives which was a good thing. However, the MacDill Air Force Base Bomb Squad inspected and dismantled the missile after the fisherman returned to port on Monday.

Islamabad, Pakistan

About 400 Pakistani tribal residents who were furious over a deadly suicide bombing at a mosque, laid siege to several Taliban strongholds in their troubled northwestern region. They killed 11 militants according to officials. The Taliban attack on the mosque left 33 worshippers dead and wounded dozens during Friday prayers. This angered residents of the Haya Gai area of Upper Dir district who have had tensions with local militants for months.

Air France Crash - 15 more Bodies Found

This was a terrible crash in which 228 people lost their lives in the Atlantic ocean. I am sure many were trapped in the plane and probably more bodies will come floating to the top. I heard today that a French submarine is going to go down and see if they can find the black boxes. It is very deep.

Search boats recovered 15 more bodies on Sunday from the plane that crashed May 31. Four of the bodies were men and four were women. They didn't have the information on the other bodies recovered as yet by French authorities. There are a lot of heartbroken families due to this huge loss of life in the ocean near Brazil. Two Americans were on board, the last I heard.

Conservatives are Ahead in EU Races

Conservatives raced toward victory in some of Europe's largest economies on Sunday. The initial results and exit polls showed voters were punishing left-leaning parties in European parliament elections in Germany, Italy, Belgium, France, Britain, Spain, and the Netherlands and elsewhere. However, Greece was a notable exception. The governing conservatives there were headed for defeat in the wake of corruption scandals and economic woes. This was the latest news to be reported out of Belgium.

Laser Surgery for Men

Men, especially as they age, often have problems urinating. Sometimes it is very hard to get started or the stream is so slow, they seem to be in the bathroom for hours. It is as bad as having to go too often, perhaps worse.

My husband had this laser surgery Thursday and they found a birth defect in his bladder. I wonder how many men are having the same problems he was having and have this defect also? The doctor said he sees a great many of them. It is too bad my husband couldn't have had it fixed 20 years ago. Just in our little town of about 3000, our doctor says she sees about 100 men a year who have this surgery. It is called TURP for short. What a blessing.
