    I have some pix of Ever and one at the Museum Monday. My hands suck, even John said it, he said you gotta get rid of your old lady hands Katy, so I am going to try some shots like I have seen where the woman/man has a really long sleeve shirt and the fingers are the only thing showing! but here is what I have for now. Hope everyone is doing okay on hump day.

    Thank you sweet Kate the Great.

    Ever is looking ever so beautiful and you glad you and your dh were enjoying my favorite museum. And you have beautiful hands Kate. And a beautiful heart to match.

    Hello lovelies

    Sorry, I haven’t had much time to post, been a busy couple of days.

    Lovely to see you stop by @Scandinavian, sorry to hear your mother is unwell, hope she makes a full recovery and life gets less hectic for you.

    Wowsers @Tekate Ever is spectacular, I can’t wait to see her IRL one of these days we’re both in Austin at the same time!

    I hope your dental appt went well today @junebug17 and no treatment was necessary.

    I hope all your tests went well today @Calliecake and that everything is well with you.

    Ah phooey @marcy, so near and yet so far, just when you thought you’d finally be rid of Moaning Minnie, and now you’re stuck with extra work to do.
    When does Marty think he’s going to be up and running with the gym?

    Hi @Slick1 I bet you can’t wait till the end of term, not long now is it?

    Hi @Mamabean how’s everything in your world?

    I hope you’re not just working and not having some time off @AV_

    I’m so sorry for the unbearable pain you’re both going through @missy , this is the part of having them that’s always the hardest to deal with. Just remember that no one could’ve given Francesca a better, more loving home, and even though her life was short, it was the best any kitty could’ve wanted.

    We’ve been out most of the day, we were invited to visit one of the ships we have cruised on that’s recently had a major refurb. It looks beautiful, and we had a lovely lunch on board.

    Sending love and hugs to all the NIRDIs :wavey:

    It takes very little to get me interested in a cat @missy (one purr?) and she is so elegant & so unexpectedly black! (because I expect the body shape & big ears & persona - much that I know of it, to be of an Abyssinian cat, or the stereotype thereof - since I have only met half a dozen closely enough for 'Hello', and there are NO blacks, never - or too rare... )

    @Tekate, Ever is beautiful and so worth the wait!!! She also looks huge on your finger. Quick go to Home Depot or an elevator. They always have the best lighting. You could roam the aisles for hours looking at her beauty. Please post more pictures. Are you thrilled and overjoyed? Loved the picture of John opening the box.

    @missy, Thinking of you and Greg and wishing I could take the pain away.

    @Austina, It t sounds like you had a nice lunch. Are you ready for your trip?

    @junebug, Did your dental appointment go well today?

    @av, LOL. You aren’t alone on the wrinkles.

    I’m sorry to hear your mom hasn’t been feeling well @Scandi.

    Hi NIRDI’s!

    Callie, are you still feeling okay? I hope you doctor’s appointment went well. Thank you for trying to put a good spin on the changes for me at work. My boss stopped by my desk about 9 and asked if I was okay. He said I knew you were pretty sad yesterday. She’s like a bad penny; you can’t get rid of it. I am looking forward to my new employees; I like both of them and they just do their job and keep busy.

    Missy, my heart is still breaking with you and for you and Greg. Big hugs. Perfect song; I find those songs that make me have a good cry help me; I hope they help you a bit too. I love seeing pictures of Francesca.
    Ooh that is a good thought - get Marty so many clients it can replace my salary and say see you suckers while skipping all the way to my car.

    Junebug, thank you for both Marty and me. I was originally in charge of my new department when they started a few years ago but the senior manager kind of took it over. He seems to like being the contact when it’s a project with a lot of senior management. Luckily there isn’t a lot of work for them to do and it’s similar to what my department does so the learning curve shouldn’t be too bad for me. I hope your dentist appointment went well. I totally chuckled at your comment about hoping you don’t get yelled at for not flossing right. That dental hygienist I had couldn’t have been more than 21 and was acting like I never brushed or flossed my teeth in the last 6 months. Youngsters, eh?

    Hi Scandi! I hope you are doing well. I am sorry to hear your mom is sick. I hope she gets better soon.

    AV, share some of your big news if you want. I hope things are unfolding for you as you hope. Retirement / more work. Rough call and decision there. That is precisely why my sister retired last year. They gave her more work, added new tasks so she said bye. Enjoy summer before it gets too hot.

    Kate, Ever is gorgeous and huge! Do you love her? What did John say? You both look happy with that FedEx box. I am anxious to see more photos. Great dinosaur shot.

    Austina, you are probably really busy getting ready for your trip. Marty should be in his gym by the beginning of July. He is ordering up his start up essentials. Sadly true - so near yet so far. Maybe I can nag at her enough she will quit. It’s just not in my nature to be nasty to someone though. Nice to have lunch on the refurbed ship.

    I lifted after work and then Marty grilled us steaks and potatoes. I got out our last 2 pieces of cheesecake; what a delicious supper!

    Take care.
    Marcy

    @missy, continuing to hold you and Greg in my thoughts xoxoxo.

    @Scandinavian, I'm sorry your mother is ill, sending lots of healing dust and good wishes to her. I know life must be very busy for you, between working and taking care of your two kiddos. I hope things settle down soon for you.

    @Calliecake, I hope everything went smoothly with your tests and you're feeling ok. <3 My dentist appointment was fine, everything checked out ok. I didn't even get yelled at lol.

    @Tekate, your ring is absolutely gorgeous! Seriously, it's amazing. Your hands are not old looking and that rock looks perfect on you. Love the pics of you and John and all the excitement. So cute that he's into it. Are you loving it? What does John say? You must be having such a wonderful time wearing it. Please post more pics.

    @Austina, good luck with everything you have going on, I hope you're getting a lot accomplished. Having lunch on the refurbished ship must have been wonderful.

    _AV, I definitely think you should take part in the holiday and do something fun! Sounds like you are having some new developments with your work; fill us in if you get a chance. Enjoy the beautiful weather before the temps start going up.

    @marcy, I'm glad taking on the new department shouldn't be too rough for you. You've got to love employees who just do their job and keep busy...wouldn't it be great if they were all like that lol. There are times I feel the hygienist doesn't believe me when I tell her I floss and use mouthwash ha.

    Tomorrow dh and I are heading to Las Vegas. I've never been there so it should be interesting. Oh @Austina, we're staying at the Palazzo. I'll be sure to check in to see how all the nirdis are doing.

    Take care everyone xox

    HI:

    @junebug17 you'll either love or hate Vegas! LOL I love it for a short period of time.

    @missy thinking of you both in this uneasy time. :(sad xoxo
    @marcy I have no doubt you'll handle your new job description with aplomb.:appl:

    @Calliecake I hope you are well and enjoying your new wheels! TBH I think car shopping is just about as bad as kidney pain. Well maybe not as painful but just as troublesome.

    cheers--Sharon

    Good morning from Scandinavia!
    @missy, how are you and Greg doing today? I recommend a nice cup of coffee. No idea why. Hugs.

    All you girls are way to nice and kind. My mother is OK for now, just that they discovered some water in her lungs, and they don't know why. And that might be not-so-good. Especially as she has had cancer before. So they are running every test in the book and then some. So lots of days waiting in hospitals for tests for her. And lots of days trying to work from home for me.

    Last week we visited a large animal park. I'll try to post some pictures.

    @Calliecake How are you? Doctor's appointment? Hugs.

    @Scandinavian I am going to be brutally honest. We are not doing well. Even Greg is breaking down. We love(d) that little girl so freaking much. Our hearts are in pieces and we are in so much pain. I cannot sleep even worse than before. I have been up every morning from 2:30 AM since Francesca left us. There is no peace for us. I just pray our little girl is at peace.
    :cry2::cry2::cry2:

    Oh honey, I am sending bucketloads of good luck dust to your mom and praying she will be A OK. Please know we are keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. (((Hugs))).

    Good morning girls.

    @junebug17 thank you honey for your continued comfort and love. I wish I could take away all your pain too. Glad the dentist did not yell at you. Have fun in Las Vegas. My best friend Tom loves Las Vegas. He goes to the shows and I believe he likes some of the gambling too. Enjoy you deserve a nice vacation. (((Hugs)))).

    @AV_ thank you. Yes Francesca was elegant and a tomboy at the same time. She was the whole package. Sassy, sweet and smart and full of personality. When she wanted something she would stop and look up at us and go Meoooow in a very soft voice. It was so precious. She had us wrapped around her little paws. Hope work is going well and that the weather is nice by you and that you are getting to enjoy the best of everything. Thank you for your loving support and comfort. (((Hugs))).

    @ringo865 thank you. I hope you are doing well and have good news to share with us very soon. (((Hugs))).

    @canuk-gal thank you. I hope you are continuing to enjoy nice weather and cycling and that you and your family are doing well. XOXO.

    @Tekate please come back with more photos. So thrilled for you that you love your new bling. XO.

    @Austina hope you are ready for your trip and had a good lunch yesterday. Thank you for your continued good thoughts for us. XO.

    @marcy glad you see things my way. Yes let Marty earn lots of money and you can quit and come visit me. You had me at cheesecake and potatoes. Supper sounded yummy last night. Glad you enjoyed. (((Hugs))).

    @Calliecake thank you. And I hope you are doing well and that your kidney stone has passed painlessly and you are enjoying your new car. After your long search you deserve to be enjoying a sweet ride. XO

    @Slick1 thank you dear girl. You are always in my thoughts and prayers too. Cannot wait to get happy news from you. And woohoo school is almost over. (((Hugs)))

    Frankie loved looking out the windows here at the beach. Here she was in the study where she loved to hang out during the day. She was usually sitting in my chair or on my desk just gazing at the sea and the wildlife.

    @missy, maybe a little trip to Scandinavia would get your mind off things…? Sorry. Just joking. Thinking of you a lot, this is one of the worst kinds of loss. But please know that Francesca loved you just as much as you loved her, and that she is at peace and still loves you. This I know in my heart.

    @missy, You are in my thoughts and please know I’m always here for you. We all understand how devastating this is for both you and Greg. You are not alone and have many people who love you. I’m sending lots of healing peaceful dust and lots of love. Grief sucks. Lean on people who love you, please let them help you. They often carry us thru the really difficult times in our life. You gave Francesca a wonderful, love filled life.

    @junebug17 , Have a great time on your trip. I can’t wait to hear all about it. You are going to have a lot fun June.

    @marcy Let’s hope having a few more good employees will end up having a positive influence on Nellie. Wow Marty’s new work out club is opening quickly. How far is it from your home? I pray his business takes off and he has lots of customers. Who knows, you may retire soon. I’m picturing you running across the work parking lot to the Macan, seeing the the office in the rear view mirror with a big smile on your face, as you say “free at last” driving away to the meet your husband for dinner and a big glass of wine. Seriously, it sounds like this won’t be bad because you are getting some really nice new employees who are good workers.

    I hope all is well with you @Mamabean and @Austina.

    @canuk-gal. It’s good to see you back here. I hope things are going well and am glad you have been able to get some cycling in. I’m really happy with the car. I honestly would rather car shop then have a kidney stone LOL. At least car shopping always ended with DH and I going out for lunch or dinner. There is a lot less fear involved with car shopping! I’m concerned because everyone says how awful kidney stones are. I keep thinking maybe this is something else because It has been no where near as painful as others have described.

    The doctor said he would contact me in the next few days about the test results (bloodwork, X-ray and Ultrasound) and he wants to see me in two weeks. If the stone hasn’t passed by then or if the test results aren’t what he Is hoping for, he said I will need another CT scan and probably need surgery to remove the stone. He still wants me taking my temp 3 times a day and if I have a fever I’m supposed to go to the hospital immediately. The fun continues but thankfully I haven’t been in awful pain, just uncomfortable. Thank you to anyone who read this very boring update.

    @Scandinavian , I started the post above late last night and missed your earlier post. Sending lots of get well dust to your mom and calming dust to you. I hope they figure out what is causing this quickly and it ends up being nothing serious. Hang in there sweetie. Unfortunately the waiting is never easy or fun. Hugs

    LOL on comparing the stones. I’ll gladly take diamonds any day.

    Hello lovelies

    @Tekate, more pictures please of Ever, she looks huge on your hand, you must be so thrilled.

    I hope they hurry up with the test results @Calliecake, it’s no fun waiting to find out what’s going on.

    Have fun @junebug17 The Palazzo is a lovely hotel, and you can walk through to the Venetian and have a gondola ride. :mrgreen2: It’s quite a place and if you’re not a gambler, it might be worth checking out whether there are exhibitions at other hotels.

    Hi @Scandinavian, hope you’re all well.

    Sounds like you had a lovely meal too yesterday @marcy. We had a potato fritter with vodka lime cream and caviar, I ate the fritter, Colin had the other bits, lobster ravioli, followed by the most tender piece of filet with a Parmesan crisp, and vegetables and a light and fluffy dessert made from lady’s fingers. :lickout:

    My heart breaks for you and Greg @missy, it took us weeks after Harry died before we could think of him without crying. :(2

    Another busy day here, hope everyone is doing ok :wavey:

    @missy I understand when you said you go from being calm to being hysterical in a flash. I did that when I lost my dog Gordie. I cried for two years every day...My heart just aches for the both of you. I love seeing her photos..She was so beautiful...and sweet...
    @Tekate Ever is just gorgeous and huge! She looks lovely on your hand...I’m so excited for you...That’s so nice that you got to spend time with Chris. I’m sure he enjoyed having you guys there..How’s sweet Autie? Scott and Allie came back from the Bahamas last night.They took a flight out of Philly so I could watch their dog Sammie. They came last night to pick her up..I got to see Jackson which was a treat. He’s never been to this house. They usually go to the Maryland house to see us because it’s an hour away as opposed to 2.5 hours. It was so much fun to see him checking out the house here. He had every pillow on the floor..sitting on them..What a mess he made...Boy did that bring back memories. When they left I had dried food all over the kitchen chair he sat in..:lol-2: It was great..
    @Austina Having lunch on the refurbished ship sounds like fun! Are they trying to get you to book a future cruise? When are you leaving on your trip?
    I finally took out the boxes of oven cleaner you suggested to do my oven ...I started reading the instructions which said to use eye protection..was caustic...etc..I boxed it back up and put the racks in the sink with hot water and Dawn. I let them soak for six hours. They came out great after using the Brillo pad....I have a self cleaning oven but I still had to clean it out. I’m never making a steak or hamburger in there again. I don’t even want to use it now..I had been using my other oven...I’ll mail you the two boxes when you move to Austin. I bought two and I think they were forty dollars...My treat! :lol-2:I’m a klutz.. I imagined myself splashing it in my eye or on myself. I can’t be trusted to be careful.
    @Callicake I hope you don’t need surgery..but I heard it’s not bad at all because they do it laparoscopically...I hope you just pass it easily. When do you find out the results of your tests? I’m going to check out the Macan to see if Bailey has room in the back. My daughter in law found a folding set of stairs that is lightweight...I was telling her I was having trouble finding a suv that had a low back so Bailey could jump in.
    @marcy That would be great if Marty’s business does really well and you can retire...I got excited reading your post thinking Groucho was going to leave. What a letdown...Your dinner sounds delicious..
    @junebug17 we must have the same dental hygienist....What is with these people? I don’t have 20 year old teeth anymore..I’m just thankful I still have mine. Your trip sounds like fun! Take lots of pictures!
    @Slick..I came late to the party..and meant to ask you a bunch of times..Are you a teacher or a student? I hope you’re doing well...
    David just got off the bus so will be back later!

    Hi NIRDI’s!

    Junebug, have a fabulous time in Vegas! I always feel like adding “really” when I tell the hygienist I floss daily. Too funny. I think I’ll like working with my 2 new employees.

    Sharon, thank you - I think I’ll like learning something new.

    Scandi, I hope they find out what is causing water on your mom’s lungs and get that taken care of for her. Sending her mega get well dust.

    Missy, I am keeping you and Greg in my thoughts and sending you wishes for finding some peace and comfort. Sweet picture of Francesca enjoying the view inside and out. Big hugs to you!
    Good idea for me to retire so I can come visit you. I’ll bring cheesecake.

    Callie, it sounds like Marty plans on trying to open his gym mid July now. They have quite a bit to do to finish cleaning the place up and redoing the floor, bathroom and ceiling. Thank you for wishing him much success. I like your vision of my last day of work - I might add “later suckers” after saying free at last. Ha ha. I think my new employees will be great. One of them is probably quitting soon. Her husband is stationed here at the base and could be transferred as soon as August or sometime next year.
    Good luck with your test results and I hope you don’t need surgery. I hate to hear you are uncomfortable but am relieved you aren’t in a lot of pain.

    Austina, your dinner sounds quite delicious. We both dined well. Tonight wasn’t as nice; I had a burger from Wendy’s.

    Mamabean, I will try the soaking my racks in warm water and Dawn. I am with you on not using something that needs that much protection and comes with so many warnings. I remember thinking I could give myself a permanent one time. I bought one and the rollers, had everything out and ready to go then after reading the instructions I quickly realized who am I kidding? I’d probably ruin my hair, the sink and spill it on the floor. The Macan has different height air suspensions; I think it is 25 mm difference overall. I am pretty sure Bailey would fit with the back seat down. I am totally laughing at Groucho; that is pretty funny.

    They had severe weather alerts out today so I had Marty take me to work. It was only raining when he picked me up. My sister stopped by tonight to visit with my niece who is up here visiting from Houston. It was nice to see them.

    I hope you are having a great day.
    Marcy

    Morning girls!
    @missy Sending you hugs and dust (because everything diamond is good, right?) and thinking of you. Please try to get out and do something. BTW Perhaps you could find an extra special picture of HRH and have it printed in glass and hang it on the wall? We have done that with our furbaby, a super big plexiglass image from one of your trips where she looks so very much like her self.

    @Calliecake Just hope the stone passes so you can go back to focussing on worthier stones!

    @Austina, I'm fine, just my mother is a little unwell so I have to take care of the children myself. Shocking!

    @junebug17 Are you going to Venice? Love that place. If so, you should consider a trip to Murano, where they make all the famous glass, fun to see. But avoid the touristy shops and head for the upstairs shops in the large factories if they are open.

    @marcy "I think my new employees will be great. One of them is probably quitting soon." LOL LOL LOL !!! Oh and Marty is opening a gym??? How amazing!

    @Mamabean Hello :wavey: I'm Scandi!

    Hugs!

    Thank you @Mamabean and I am so sorry you know exactly how we are feeling. Both Greg and I are crying every day many times a day. It's amazing how our little girl got so deep into our hearts and became so much of our world. Right now the pain feels unbearable and we are missing her so terribly. Thank you for your compassion and empathy. (((Hugs))).

    Thank you dear @Austina. I am so sorry you went through such a loss. At times it's hard to want to continue on when missing our sweethearts who are gone. :cry2: Right now I don't see a way to the light. Losing Billy and my grandma were horrible but somehow this seems even more tragic. And the pain so deep.:( (((Hugs))).

    Thank you @Calliecake. It doesn't feel real still but I know it is. We did our best by Francesca but she was here too short a time. Life stinks. :cry2:
    I pray she is at peace now but really all I can think is that she deserved to be here still. She was here too brief a time. It is so true that only the good die young. That is truth when it comes to our dearest Francesca.:cry2:


    Thank you @marcy. And yes to you retiring and bringing us cheesecake. Greg will bake his famous Apple Pie and none of us will go hungry. (((Hugs))).


    Thank you @SparkleFest.

    Thank you dear @Scandinavian. I hope your mom is doing well. Please let her know we are all keeping her in our thoughts and prayers. (((Hugs))).

    @Slick1 thank you and I am continuing good thoughts for you and glad things are coming along nicely. XOXO.

    These animals are very well cared for and have huge enclosures / their own parks. So nice to just enjoy them - but you have to aim for feeding time - or you will not see them LOL. The park is BIG.

    @missy, thinking of you and sending thoughts of comfort and peace. X0x0x0x

    @Scandinavian, I'm so sorry your mother isn't feeling well, sending love to you - I know it's very stressful when a family member is having health issues. LOL to having to take care of the children by yourself! You do have your hands full, and I hope you're taking care of yourself too! Amazing pics of the nature park:love:, so great that these beautiful animals can enjoy such wide open spaces. Love the lions...I have a soft spot for lions and tigers, they're really just big cats haha. Thank you for posting them. Dh and I are in Las Vegas, Nevada, and somewhere around here there's a fake city of Venice, and you can go for a gondola ride. Oh, there's also a bar here made of ice...I remember you staying in an ice hotel...dh and I will probably check it out at some point.

    @Mamabean, aw, how nice you got to see Jackson! It's funny how being around little ones does bring back memories. Sorry you're having trouble finding a car that's the right height for Bailey...a lightweight step ladder might be a good solution.

    @canuk-gal, yes, this visit will be short and sweet, and I think I'm ok with that! I'm enjoying seeing something different...and LV is definitely different lol.

    @marcy, ugh to such lousy weather, I hope it improves soon. How great that you had a chance to see your niece from Houston, and your sister as well.

    @Calliecake, thinking of you and hoping you're feeling ok. Also hoping you pass this stone very soon so you can put this behind you. (((Hugs)))

    @Tekate, hope you're enjoying your gorgeous new ring.

    Here's a pic of a pool (this hotel has about 10 of them I think lol) from our room. We have reservations for dinner, and are seeing Jerry Seinfeld tonight.
