Today is also my 50th high school reunion. It's taking place in Newport Beach. Sorta wonder why it's down there and not in the San Gabriel Valley where we lived. Oh well...  Our class was the S'63 Delphians... from Woodrow Wilson High School in El Sereno. Have fun kids, wish I was there! I look forward to the photos of the event!

Yesterday I took Maggie in to the vets for x-rays. He wanted to find out why she is always panting. I was a nervous wreck all day and sad that I may lose my Maggie. Went back at 5pm and he showed me the x-rays. Maggie has chronic bronchitis ... or COPD! OMG. She will be on Prednisone.  He was as amazed as I was that she didn't have any other growths in her body or lungs, etc. Six more months she will be 15!
I spent some of the time yesterday getting the items ready to box up to send to Casey in Afghanistan...
This are part of the items... Cup of Soup, Raman Noodles, Rice Krispie Treats, nuts, nasal spray, lip balm, deodorant, stomach relief tablets, eye drops, wipes, pumpkin seeds, Band-Aids, sunflower seeds, cough drops, hard candy, gum, and Slim Jims. Most of this is boxed and I have to fill out the customs forms for each box.
