I was in the middle of a phone call with Poppy when the phone went dead…a tornado moved through the area (not my house) but in Parkville. The storm is still in the metro area- damage is still being done- so far many homes lost and as of this time- 1 death. We had hail the size of golf balls (beat up my plants a bit) but we are lucky and safe.

Just thought I’d check in and see what everyone’s up to… My semester is coming to a close- last day of classes is 5/9. I have several papers and a couple tests before the close though- wish me luck! I am hoping to take three summer courses and I will be helping the school summer program again this year. I need to focus on coming up with idea projects etc. Any ideas? Kam has his first Minor League Baseball game on Saturday. He has been busy with the Terra Nova teasting this week. ‘he says he thinks he got a 100’ Uncle Kevin- that Spiderman is in bed with him every night! That was truely great! Although he got very mad at me for not letting him take it to school. It’s too big! Kenny is very happy. He gets to golf pretty regulrly now. He and Kam come out to the club every Friday. Let’s hope the weather here holds out for Saturday so he can golf. Well that’s all folks!! Get it?
Come on folks- a busy month so I know there has to be lots going on…let us know.
I have finish my class at UMKC so I have 3 weeks to work on house projects before my next class starts. Last night I worked 4 hours preparing the “Herb Bed” I have about 25 different herbs. Linda put in the strawberries- we have 4-5 different types. I started the butterfly garden so things are looking up. We are building another brick wall but have to wait for the bobcat to remove 8 poles (tried to dig them up last night- this is why you need a man!)After we finish- Hello hot tub! Anyone want to join us? Kansas City sure is nice this time of year.
Linda planted two new trees today. One “Van Cherry” and one “White Princess Peach”. We already have a plum, two apple and a non-fruit bearing apricot (it’s mate died two years ago). We also got in two blackberry bushes, asparagus, rhubarb and 10 tomato plants. Can’t wait till summer!
Kris was offered a new job Friday- more money, more time with her kids and in the area she currently lives. She begins June 1. Say goodbye to IR again (someday they’ll realize a good thing when they have it). Congratulations Kris!
Hey Karen and Linda,
Just wanted to take a moment and wish you both well. Hope you make your day special and celebrate. Fourteen years…WOW!
Building a sustainable society is the critical challenge of this century. Everything depends on it. Sen. Gaylord Nelson, Founder, Earth Day. Wondering what to do, check this out.
Linda brought in the treadmill so we could start walking (it was in the barn) we cleaned it off and realized the on/off key was missing. We had packed it away when we moved (3 years ago) and had no idea were it was. Linda looked, I looked in the barn, upstairs, in spare boxes and the desks- so after much frustration- I prayed to St. Anthony. Several hours later I went back upstairs to look in some boxes- no luck. As I was walking out of the room I saw two bags that use to be in the bottom of the water bed- I looked in (never dreaming it would be in there) and right on top- the key! (Saved $37.50). Way to go St. Anthony!
Well it was this (fake snake) or a BB gun- mom said I’d have a blackmark in Heaven if I killed the bird so…. You can see the crap all up the roof line. He quit the corner and started doing the whole roof. The bird has not returned (so far) but many neighbors are looking confused!
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter! And to those of you living out of state who are gonna miss all of the fun and the egg hunt and the get together with the meal…… you shoulda come home! This is the first Easter that I haven’t had to work in 5 years and the first Easter in 6 years that Kam will be able to have an egg hunt outside! Kenny’s happy that the course is open again and he can finally get out! Kam is really becoming a force to be reckoned with out there. Kenny and Kam come out and play 9 holes on Friday nights. Have a great day tomorrow and just think how many kisses I’m gonna give Delaney. And I ain’t given her any from anybody else…….. you shoulda come home!
Can wear lime green with red boots?(not the grinch)
Smile as big as her whole body?(not the joker)
Be cute as a monkey?(not the little ones on her outfit)
Delaney Anne Carroll-that’s who!

When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn’t hold my tummy in
to wear a belted dress.
But now that I am older,
I’ve set my body free;
There’s the comfort of elastic
Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
My feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now,
But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose-
They’re sized by weight, you see,
So how come when I put them on
The crotch is at my knee?
I need to wear these glasses
As the print’s been getting smaller;
And it wasn’t very long ago
I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to gray
and my skin no longer fits,
On the inside, I’m the same old me,
It’s the outside’s changed a bit.
But, on a positive note…
Buffett is 5 today…let’s celebrate with her friends!”
