My Birthday Present


We went to the airport last night to pick up one of my Birthday gifts.  Of course I told Christy that it was a gift to her, but I know the truth.  It was fine on the way there although it was busy on the freeway.  However as soon as we got to the airport exit we ran into solid traffic all the way up to the terminal.  Evidently we were not the only people trying to get to the airport yesterday.  Someone must have told people about the coming storm.
Anyway as we waited in the long line the snow started.  It was rain for about 5 minutes and then little tiny very determined snowflakes.  By the time we had corraled Christy and made our way home the snow was already making the freeway look like a country road.

Christy had to kiss the parents even before she took off her 'sleeping bag' coat.

I am glad we made the tickets for Wednesday because this is what we woke up to....so far, about 8 inches.  I think that is Block leader  Bob using the block snow blower across the street.  He went up our side and was going down the other side and up everyone's driveway.

One of Christy's requests was to go to Turtle Bread so I found my boots and off we went.  I bought some good looking rolls for our Christmas Pizza/Card Party snacks and we had juice and a roll before struggling back.  We tried to go to Brown and Greene but they hadn't made it in yet so we settled for the Rick Rack store.

We came home and rested for a while.  Well, some of us rested and others texted.
Now Jim has gone off to eat his homemade sandwich and read their paper at Sebastian Joe's.  They must not mind much because they gave him a pint of eggnog ice cream yesterday.  He accepted it to after I complained at his refusing it last year.  He took Christy and she is going to the Linden Hills Co-op to pick up some spices and buy some things only she knows about.
Jon and E came over and changed into their snowshoes and went off for a little jaunt.  They say they will be back later.   It is still snowing lightly but is supposed to pick up again later.  I expect we will play some cards later too.
Love,
Nancy

Christy is 'in-the-house'. It is always fun to have another visitor at 4425. Somebody new at the hand n foot table to pick on. She has probably forgotten some of the rules, so much the better for the rest of us. Heehee he.

Well she has been practicing. Last night with Jim and me and today with Dad and me. I think she is ready for you. Better watch out.
Love,
Nancy

Nance, I'm hoping you see this. I got a little worried today when the Kats got curious about how to find the websites...my heart was pounding and I knew for sure I had blown it!!... but all day now and no one has said anything. It will happen eventually, I guess. I should have gone way "back" like I did on Spences blog to the first one you posted. Oh well, what the hell.

Wasn't it "funny" how Spence did not post from the 3rd book today! ... I think, well, I'm just guessing, but I think he likes the soap opera. So play it up girl!!

And to tell you the truth, when I write something, I am very aware that a very talented writer is reading what I am saying.. and it makes things very exciting, to say the least.

I'm telling you Nance, now Lexi of all people is putting forth the claim we are "the same" ... if this becomes a whole "Witch Hunt" claiming that we are the Same Person/Animal doing all this story telling, I am gone from the blog. There is no way I can prove we are diffent people...except for giving them our identities. Which Ain't gonna happen. If they are so small minded as to believe that people who do not know each other cannot have any kind of Imagination and Work together in an Improve situation.. then I want no part of the discussion. I will always read the authors's posts.. but that's it. Tomorrow will tell the tale, I guess. I'm sure B.S. will get her licks in. (that bitch scares me deep down)

IMPROV! geeze!..

Nancy said...

AH Shelley, Lexi doesn't have a clue. She is just doing improv too. The more the merrier I say.
See you in Canada, or at Spence's place.
Cheers,
Nancy

Nancy...you were right! I should have just ignored her. I spilled my Bloody Guts out. What a stupid thing to do!!! But there is this feeling I have that she isn't always being written by the same person...sometimes she can hardly put a sentence together and then like Today, she's quite capable. And Wots up with that Link to Chets Page???

I'm sorry, you must think i am right out of my mind. I am just going to relax and have fun again.

Something will happen and we will have another adventure. Last night was so amazingly Funny! till Lexi put me in her trance...doh!

Hi Nancy!.. I sure hope you are feeling better! I think I have finally made friends with one of the harder people to talk with out there today. In fact, her and I talked alot about how the author gave away the ending of book 2 in his post today! Don't know if you caught that or not. Maybe he doesn't care, cuz he hasn't changed it yet! Get better!

Hey there Shelley,
It is just my toe, but it sure is work to walk when your foot hurts like that. Makes me tired and I haven't posted much after work.
Things are getting better though not as fast as I would like.
Keep on snorting,
Nancy
