Good to know Paco isn't unique. It gets really noisy around here whenever someone comes to the door.
I changed some setting on my iPhone the other day - I swear, all I was trying to do was to get my pictures uploaded to my desktop. Somehow, the Cloud got involved, and now I keep getting this message popping up:
This is driving me crazy - I got it, I got it! Now stop telling me!!
I'm seeing this message all the time. I've disabled the Cloud with my pictures, but that hasn't helped. I need a teenager to come over and fix this for me - a couple of taps and it will be done. Apparently when I do a couple of taps, I open up a can of worms...sigh.
Last Friday night, we participated in the Relay For Life. The event was supposed to be held outdoors at a small airport, but because of all the rain we've had, that location was under something like 24 inches of water. So they moved it to the expo center, which ended up being pretty nice - it was covered, and there were overhead lights, so no need for flashlights once the sun went down. The only funny part was that when the band took a break and it got quiet, you could hear all of the animals - cows and goats and sheep were penned in the other arena. At least you couldn't smell them! We were there for about six hours. I wore my Garmin because I was curious to see how much I'd end up walking - turns out, it was close to 8 miles! Who knew walking round and round and round would add up like that?
This was the first time I've done a Relay For Life, and I was surprised to discover that it hit me quite a bit on the emotional level. Even though it's been a lot of years since my Grandmother died from pancreatic cancer, and even though my Mother is thankfully cancer-free since her ordeal of a few years ago, it was rough, and periodically I was teary-eyed throughout the evening. Still, we had a good time together, and even managed to take a future-embarrassing picture of Loretta's grandson:
Poor Jayden...he's gonna be mad when he's 13 and sees this picture!
Jeff walked for a while, but then did what he does best:
There was a live band playing, and people were dancing nearby. Proof he can sleep through anything!
Have a great weekend!
