got back from the trip with the boys, and now it's back to the 4 little ones, not sure which is easier. Hard to keep up with 4 twenty somethings that's for sure, but I gave it a heck of a try. They had me out til all hours, the blues clubs on Beale Street, the casinos in Mississippi (even won some at the slots..yeah!), late night movies, some of my son's favorite hangouts, etc. Not sure if they brought me cuz they wanted me, or because they wanted my credit card and a designated driver!! What ever the reason, the trip was just too short. Havent' had that much uninterupted time with the kids for several years, and it was a blast! Instead of road trips singing nursery songs, we were screaming out classic rock at the top of our lungs. It was a joy to sit back and watch the boys interact with each other. They genuinely like each other and have fun together, and they didn't mind dragging around their old mom, who'd ever believe it? Guess the mtx must be working some, had a few sore moments, but Celebrex took care of it, and I was on my feet, alot!! We toured Graceland, which I liked much better than I thought I would, and also the studio where Elvis got his start, along with Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Roy Orbison, and so on. Memphis has a lot of great stuff.
Boo, How are you? So sorry about

Yally and Bear, what on earth are we to do with you two? Can't leave you alone for a minute!!
Bear, was reading your post on the pharma/research stuff. Have to say, have heard this opinion before, and I pray that you are wrong, but afraid there is probably alot of truth in your views as sad as that is.
We've been involved with fundraising for diabetes research for many, many years, a cause near and dear to our hearts. But a good friend of mine got involved in the higher levels of nursing home management and knew many people in the pharamacy industry. He told me one time that he was convinced that there would never be a cure found for diabetes, because too much money was being made by the medical industry on the treatment for the disease. I couldn't comprehend that someone would withhold a cure for sheer profit,but, through the years, I am not so sure anymore.
Better sign off...much too long a post...sorry!!
Take care all,
