Throw Back Thursday ~ Jo Co Fair ~ Bad Poetry

Good 64º clear sunny morning. Topped at 98º yesterday but we are in for triple digits for the next few days.
Happy Throw Back Thursday....
Here's Tucker 7 years ago at the beach!

Breakfast yesterday included a fruit tartlet from Omaha Steaks. You keep it frozen and put in the microwave for 1 minute 10 seconds. OMGOOOOOD!!!! That and two eggs microwaved for the same amount of time and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. OINK!!!

I got my electric bill.. I LOVE the Mitsubishi Heat and AC units. I have been running the AC 24/7 and the bill is only $110.01 !

Yesterday was fun. I met up with my pal, Karen at the Josephine County Fairgrounds at 11. It was a good day to go, as it will be lots warmer now. I tried making a Smilebox of the photos I took, but having one problem after another, so it will have to wait. Here are a few of the photos I took. 

At the Republican booth I took Karen's picture with her son's picture, Herman our state senator:

Bad Poetry Day



My name is Sue.

In the past I've had the flu.

I pay my bills when due.

I've heard a cow moo,

and never lost a shoe.

My cat will give out a mew.

For cheese I like bleu.

I have a great view.

My friends and family, I love you.

OMG, that sucked! Let's hear what you've got!

Thursday August 18

Words cannot describe my frustration. I was at the Josephine Co Fair yesterday with pal Karen and took a ton of pictures. This morning I made a Smilebox and tried to preview it and upload it, but it won't upload and the preview was too big for my screen! THIS DARN COMPUTER has taken it's toll on me lately.

I am still working on the photos and will, hopefully have the blog up and running soon. Sorry to be late today. xo
