Yesterday I was helping my DD and SIL paint the large wooden deck on the back of their house near where our RV is parked. We didn't quite finish before dark so I put a lid on the disposable container that held the paint I was using and left it outside next to the empty paint cans.

Today the moving truck came so I was inside helping. About 5:15 I stumbled out to head back to our coach for some much needed food and rest.

My heart sank when I noticed deck paint on the garage and shed roof. It was in long streaks of light gray on the dark gray roof.

You see the RV is parked close enough to the garage that I can step from the RV roof across to the garage roof. The shed is up next to the garage. Sena jumps out the bedroom window to the shed roof and plays outside. She won't run away, but she has been known to raid the neighbor's recycling bins.

I know it is my fault. I left the paint where she could get it and I let her play outside today. I paid dearly, though. Instead of getting to eat and lay down, I spent the next hour pressure washing the garage and shed roofs. Then when I climbed down there were blotches of gray paint that the pressure washer had splattered on the side of the RV. I can't win.
You just remember one thing dear Barb. Sena is the master, you are the pet.....er slave.

Also, many days from now y'all will look back on this incident and laugh at it.

In the mean time, put some more paint out and let Sena work on her Picasso impressions.

Kids and pets...some yes, they bring indescribable joy...other times you'd be totally justified to wring their little necks!

X2 Marty! Thanks. I was looking for the right words.
And my son, at 2 &1/2 wonders what is in the toilet tank. So, he stands on the seat, lifts the tank cover, and drops it. Tank cover and toidy totaled!

Praise the Lord

I'm overjoyed that it doesn't appear to be my sister Sandy's last days here on earth. Visited her yesterday and found that she was rallying in her battle to defeat her many issues. Especially the aspirating caused pneumonia.

What was five separate bags of antibiotics has become 3. She opened her eyes to the sound of my voice. She knew me. Her speech is stilled so garbled that you "catch" about 3 words out of 7. Three is sometimes enough to know the subject of most sentences.

She was moved to a regular room late yesterday. All nutrition will, in the future, be delivered by feeding tube. She said she was afraid that she was going to die on Tuesday, so I guess she wants to fight for a few more months or years.

Will keep you informed if things change. OMG thanx for you kind thoughts, words, and offering up of prayers for Sandy. You're a good batch of mutants.

Sure is quiet in mutantdom today.

Steve - Good news about sis! We'll keep the Ommms generator on high for all of you.

We have done little to nothing in our 6 nights here. We were just talking about how much we needed to decompress after being compressed (Dave) in Central Illinois. We move a full 125 miles tomorrow warming up for long 180 miles to Santa Fe the next day for a week.

We have done a little site seeing but not seeking out the touristy stuff. Just living on the rainbow. We're not to far from Royal Gorge which we've done before. I do want to take Annie to the AF Academy Cadet Chapel but we'll probably do that in the spring.

Again - good news. Thanks for posting.

Ahh! Much like counting and recounting. Nifty!
Any hanging chads?




Shara's Ode To Mutants is poetic art direct from her dear heart!
I'd love to a ton more of that




That's downright, outright nifty and Mutant!

In spect, there can be many PoWs yet to come (I hope) from more RVMs. I can't wait to review them in retrospect.
Hmmmmm, but how can you review them before you view them? That I do not understand.

Much like the ad for some medicine tonight - it said it reduces remission which to me means there was originally a mission to become ill. So that's todays lesson - if you do not set a mission to be ill you will not have to worry about any remission from said illness!

PapaSteve... that is happy for family who aren't ready to let go. Her choice of words reveals maybe some part of her was not as ready to be done as she originally thought. Peace and continued prayers for all involved in this time.

Ok, that makes a little paint seem less of a disaster. My 19 going on 3 year old thanks you for putting this latest incident into perspective. All 2 year olds get into trouble. But having the terrible twos last for most of her 35-40 year life expectancy makes Sena's antics exasperating.

How old is she? Unfortunately the things that help ease terrible twos aren't going to work on a Capuchin....

Oh but it gives the rest of us a smile and a chuckle.......
especially after seeing grands yesterday, youngest is two.

On DIL parents, not good at all. Her mom who has had cancer for a year and had a brain surgery three weeks ago has undergone radiation, they are still only giving her 6 months..... her Dad who was diagnosed a week ago has a 10"x10"x10" tumor, in his chest, they gave him a couple of months w/wo chemo.... while I am not close to her parents, i hate it for DIL.... and like Marty has said, i think it is harder because she knows... but we did have a conversation with other DiL, the psyc dr, about talking about death with the kids.

But here is yesterday... could not get sweet faces.....

Why look sweet for a pic when silly faces are more fun?
