Here is the promised meme - thanks to all who have posted this before.

WHO IS THE OLDEST?  Ray, at times it is almost two years between us and I never let him forget it.

WHO WAS INTERESTED FIRST?  The first time we met, I didn't like him at all.  

WORSE TEMPER?  Definitely him.  He has a short fuse.  I simmer for a bit and it takes awhile, but then...

MORE STUBBORN?  I think it's a toss up.  We're both pretty headstrong.

WAKES UP FIRST? Him, always.

WHO COOKS THE MOST?  I cook - he grills.

CRIES?  Definitely me.  I'm a weeper.

SAID I LOVE YOU FIRST?  Don't remember.  It has been a very long time and I barely remember yesterday.

BETTER SINGER?  Definitely him - when I sing animals howl.

BETTER DRIVER?  I think I am - he thinks he is.  Go figure.

HOGS THE REMOTE?  It's actually an extension of Ray's arm.  I've actually watched him start to panic if it gets too far away.  (hahah)

BETTER COOK?  Me - he's a good hamburger helper guy.

CLOTHES AND SHOE HOARDER?  He would say me, but I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.  I like  choices.

See  you later, probably much later, for Aimless Ramblings.

Dropping By


Visiting some of fav's yesterday, my last post on July 13th popped out.  That was the last time I posted.  OMG it hasn't seemed that long.  Time has just whizzed by and the summer along with it.  It has been busy and hot, hot, hot (weather wise, that is).

Ray's birthday party was great fun and it was really a whole birthday weekend.  My brother and his SO and our daughter made it very special.  We ate and drank way too much - made getting older a little more palatable - for Ray anyway.  August arrived with a big anniversary for us and hubby surprised me with a weekend at one of the iconic hotels here in AZ.  

This weekend our grandson heads off to college.  He is so excited while our daughter is teary.  I do remember when she went off, hell I remember when I went off.  Things are never the same once they go off on their own for a while even when they do come home.  My youngest grandson starts high school on Monday and he is a little trepidatious. He will be attending the school where his father is the principal and it didn't work out too well for his brother.  We shall see.   He has decided to give up soccer and play football. Scary for his mom and I - father and grandfather are fine.  He is fast and will play running back.  You know the hits those guys take and G is tall and wiry - strong but there is not a lot of meat on his bones.  Keeping fingers crossed.

Did something we haven't done since we moved here.  It's too hot to do any outdoor activities so we decided to check out the casino while daughter was here.  It's only five minutes from home.  We all signed up for the fan appreciation card giving you at least ten dollars of free play.  Well, E scored big - she got 1,000 free play and went home with most of it still in her pocket.  Needless to say, she was excited and planned a back to school shopping spree.  She too will be a school principal this year.  

Not one word has been put to paper since I stopped blogging. Not sure when or even if I will get back to stories and books.  Once in a while, I get an idea but that's as far as it goes.  I think I 'worded' out at least for the immediate future.  

That's it for today.  I'm going to do that meme everyone has posted.  It will be up on Friday.

See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
