Water, water, everywhere!

Good afternoon!  I took a walk downtown to check out the water level and it seems to have receded about a foot.  That is a relief!  I fed my beloved duckies some duck food from the 25 cent dispenser as they looked confused and hungry.  I do love my ducks.  The park that was washed out is my favorite park I have ever been to.  It is just gorgeous.  Alot of Saturdays go by when someone is married there - especially during the summer.  My one-hour pictures only took three hours which is not so bad.  My daughter called me and wants to have a mother-daughter night tonight with my friend Karen and her daughter Ali.  I told her that all the roads are closed and she said that she will find a way to get here and pick me up.  Teenagers think they can do anything.  They think they are invincible.  Perhaps she will fly with Sara's cape.  Swoosh....Swoosh.... Toodles, my friends!

  3. Val you make me laugh girlie!  I'm glad you are all OK, that flooding looks pretty scary to me.  I hope Chelsea does find a way to pick you up later, if not, she can borrow my cape, of course she can!!  I love feeding the ducks too, we take Jason to a lake that's not too far.  We have swans and geese too, that try and take all the food!

  10. WoW, that was some flooding you had to deal with. I hope you dry out soon.  Your sister sent me to your journal. :-)  I'll have to visit again, I like your journal.  I wrote about some of my youngest son's experiences in Pensacola, Florida.  Ivan has really been horrible.

  15. Wow!  You had a lot of rain!  We did too, but thankfully, no flooding here.  We're on higher ground though.  A few years ago, Floyd devastated our area.  I hope the waters have already started to recede in your area.  Have a good Sunday.
