It's probably past time for a new thread here! We came from over here: http://cubits.org/sitandchat/thread/view/60367/

Cherie, be sure to give us an update on your brother, please.

This is a picture of a butterfly we just happened to see come out of it's cocoon. We were cleaning up to come inside and I saw what I thought was an injured butterfly at the edge of an upturned flower pot. As I turned the pot over, we all got to see him just finishing wriggling out of the cocoon. It was so amazing to have been at the right place at just the right time. While his wings were wet and soft, he crawled on us!

Oh how cool. Wish I could happen on something like that with Ariana............ She would be so thrilled.

Donny is out of the hospital. Has been out since Tuesday evening. He has the Urostomy bag but we knew he would. That has to be so much EASIER than the colostomy bag by far. He will have that 2 to 4 months until everything inside is completely healed and then go from there. Tuesday he sees his cancer doc to see when he will begin chemo again, They;ll first need a cat scan, blood work drawn and tested to see where he is at this point. Actually he is off today to go up my other brother up north and tomorrow the 2 of them are attending a wedding in Eau Claire. Mom was kinda iffy on it and asked him if he was sure he could drive all the way up himself and his reply to her was What? I'm supposed to stay home and rot? Cancer is NOT contagious, so I guess he is doing as well as can be expected or maybe even slightly better. At the hospital, I went in singing I just dropped in to see what condition your condition was in Yeah yeah oh yeaaaaaah......He called me last night yelling "SEEEEster I can't get that Kenny Rogers song out of my head now.!" That was Sunday I was there. Said he's found himself humming it ever since. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Now he knows how I felt when he put me through a week of humming Me and Bobby McGee.......

Good news, Cece. An upbeat attitude is just what he needs now!

Great pictures, Sheri. What an amazing thing for the kids to see the butterfly coming out of the cacoon. I bet those little feet tickle!

Cherie, thanks for the update. It sounds like your brother is indeed making the best of his situation. Here's hoping his attitude carries him through to good health!

The butterfly was amazing. Even when we had the cocoons in our butterfly house we didn't manage to actually see one come out of the cocoon! I just couldn't believe our timing that day. (the feet did tickle Rolling on the floor laughing )

You are teaching those little kiddies to be appreciative of nature, kind to critters, etc. Good job!

Guess I better post so this comes up on my "watch" threads. Lord knows there sure isn't much activity on this site. The whole site, I mean. Unless I am just not on the active ones.

I pretty much am just here and on the Movie/TV cubit and a little on the computer Q & A and puzzles. Not sure about the restof the site but I think the split hurt it here.

UGH, now Heather has mono! Possibly has had it since before surgery but it wasn't presenting it's self just then.

CeCe, such good news about your brother.The BIBLE says that a merry heart does good like a medicine.

Sheri, I'm so sorry to hear that Heather now has mono. I'm praying her immune system is strong enough to really fight it hard. Any sign of it in the other children?

I may have heard of flubber but don't think I've ever seen it. That is a huge bubble.

I got 4 new pigeons today. A mated pair and one almost mature offspring of theirs and 1/2 of a mated pair. The other mate didn't come in last night so if/when it comes back the people will bring it to my work place for me. I told her more than once that we have had pigeons for over 30 years but she kept telling me how to keep them, what to feed them, etc.

I work tomorrow so I need to get myself ready for bed. I just put a load of laundry in to wash and fixed my lunch for tomorrow so I'm more or less ready to get ready for bed. I still need to give Darcy Beagle an 81mg enteric coated aspirin for her all over stiffness. I been doing it off and on but now that the nights are cooler she seems to be needing them morning and night. Of course a treat for her(I hide the pill in a small chunk of weiner)means a treat for each of the other 2 dogs. And the cat if she wakes up. The dogs all got treats this morning because Nita needed allergy meds.

GOD bless and keep each of you.

I got a text from Heather today and the littlest one, Haven (10 months) is running a fever. She is going to take her in tomorrow. She figures either she has another ear infection or she has mono.

Flubber is easy to make and so much fun for the kids!

What do you do with the pigeons?

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Remember my b*******ing about the laptop that always pops out at the most unopportune times? Ed got me a spanking brand new one for my birthday. Actually he bought 2 one for me and one for himself. guess who gets to teach him? Well me and the instructors at WCTC that teach the class PC for the Pertified. Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Window 7............grrrrrr I understand Maria's complaints now. Won't let me do things the way I did then in Vista............. I LIKED Vista, well I liked XP
too but this Windosw 7 won't let me do ANYTHING the way I'm used to. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Grumbling Grumbling Grumbling

I never had an issue going from XP or Vista (don't remember what I had) to Windows 7. I've never understood the issues or been able to see any big differences.

So you are both going to take the class? Or just Ed?

I just like to see the pigeons fly and listen to them 'talking' among themselves. When they start to fly it sounds like hands clapping. Then they glide and soar before swooping in to land.

Happy birthday, CeCe. I hope it was a great day for you.

I'd be petrified if I had to change from XP to any other program. I know I keep hearing that Microsoft is going to stop supporting XP but I keep getting updates. My boys both hate 7. One said that only Millinium was worse.

The neighbor 'boy' is coming tomorrow to help me do things I am no longer able to do. It won't take long.

I need to change clothes and go round up the wire to put from the partion to the ceiling in the bird house so I can turn the new pigeons loose. That should have been done years ago.

GOD bless and keep each of you.

I spent most of the weekend at the Celtic festival. It was hot, and this little lemonade stand was hardly ever without a customer. A man and his wife run it, the man built it. He squeezes the lemons one at a time with a lever operated squeezer (place lemon with ends cut off on the platform, pull lever down, raise lever, toss empty lemon, grab another one. The juice goes into a cup and is carried in the door and poured into a container. It goes from there within minutes into your drink). Isn't this just the cutest lemonade stand you ever saw?

And how much did they soak ya for that lemonade? I won't even think of buying it at the fair because it is so outrageously expensive, and half ice to boot.
