Full Moon ~ Rain Predicted ~ Tucker on TV's Brain Bowl ~ Bruiser ~ Dude ~ Cheese Fondue





Good 40º overcast morning.


Oh joy:



Yesterday, another exciting one, went into town to pick up my mail that was being held, got some cracked corn at Ace, picked up a prescription, and bought some wine!
Sunday night on our Public Broadcasting channel (Southern Oregon Public Television) they had the show Brain Bowl, where students from So. Oregon Middle Schools compete for a chance to advance to a national tournament of this scholastic competition. My grandson Tucker was on the team and his team won....




Go Tucker!!!! What a great job!!!!

Later dinner was not on the books. Bruiser had been gone all day and had me worried. I could not eat. FINALLY he came home 13½ hours later! That was 9:40pm. He does this periodically, but I still worry like mad!!!

Dude knows I'm upset, and he stays close.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Full Moon Tuesday. Be safe, all the nuts will be out there.... driving! Ciao.

CONGRATULATIONS TUCKER!! WOW your grand babies are sure talented! So cute! Wish you had a video of them answering questions. Matthew is also in middle school in 7th grade so that would interest me. In what grade is Tucker?

That Bruiser! He had been locked up at the "hotel" place so he had worked up his wanderlust! :) Hope he enjoyed his journey but he should be ashamed of himself worrying mom so much! You need to have a chat with him about that. :)

Have a good one!

Yes, T, Tucker and Matthew are the same age and in the same grade. I know Bruiser gets the wanderlust occasionally, but he can't help it, half of his life he was feral. He was not happy being in a "room" for over a week. Can't blame him. xoxo
