...# 800!! ...







Eight hundred posts?? Day-ummmm...that's more commitment than I'll ever promise to another guy in the future!! lol!
I am so obsessed with Care Bears (still!)...and there must've been some magic dust in the air, and it brought this handsome little garden elf to life for awhile...
I've been on a total rollercoaster ride of emotions in the last couple weeks...and, you know, it really sucks. Drama that you get because of any physical problems is a lot harder to deal with than the emotional drama that is nothing. Emotional drama is kinda like walking down the sidewalk and having to step over a pile of dog poop. That stuff doesnt frustrate me, it's nothin'! But ya gotta figure, I was in the hospital for a couple days with 4 broken ribs in the last month...Truman just got home from being boarded at the vet's last week...and I'm trying everything to make him keep eating...
Kim & I went out most of the day today...to the bank, the dollar store...where we "made a spectacle of ourselves" (did your parents use that expression when you were young? lol!) We were going down a big middle aisle, and ended up getting into a swordfight in the middle...using plungers, of course! The store was ringing with "En garde!!" "Touche!!" And keep in mind, I'm in a wheelchair, and Kim's running & jumping all over the place! FUN! Went to a Rite Aid to get me what's called a transport chair...it's a super light wheelchair, it doesnt have big heavy wheels or anything. Then we drove by the house I grew up in, it's getting painted now, so it's a 3 story house half peeling yellow paint, the other half bright yellow! It'll be nice...someday...
We also heard some songs on the radio that took us back to late 70s/early 80s...."Elvira...my heart is on fire...Elvira..." We also had a disagreement about the time that we were 16, she swears that we went to someone's house to get some stuff, & she swears that I made her wait outside cuz I was getting acid. Holy cow...I never would've made her wait outside! Sheesh~!! We talked about the time she peed out the window in the third story of that house...talk about making a spectacle of yourself...:-D
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Feel better. I know those pictures just made my day. The cutest gnome I've ever seen!

Meg said...

Oh my goodness, love the garden elf pictures. Too cute!

And I had to laugh my ass off at the image of you and Kim sword fighting with plungers. If I had been at that store I may have joined in. Awesome!

Good luck with Truman!

YAY! You're normal like me! =)

Hope those ribs are healing and not making rib-bits. And Truman... have you tried to put some catnip in say a morsel of tuna? LOL.

I'm glad to hear Truman is home and doing better. (Which Truman is he named after, "Harry S" or "Capote?")

Your little gnome looks very huggable!

Libby said...

thanks, thomas...he was a "rogue gnome"...
& tif actually named truman after the movie "The Truman Show", but i also think of the auhor capote!!

Muffie said...

This was too funny! Sounds like something I'd do (and I have done some nutty things in public!!)

Your little gnome reminds me of my little 8-month-old grandson -- so adorable!

Glad that Truman is coming along.

Peace,
Muff

It's not IF we make a spectacle of ourselves that counts. It's the HOW :)

(1) My great-grandmother was named Elvira. So I remember that song very well.

(2) Congratulations on your 800th post. I'm just getting past the 500th mark myself.

(3) Tell Kim to act her age.

Libby said...

x...why the hell would i WANT my best friend to act her age?

Have Myelin? said...

Libby, do you want your BF to act older than her age? It might keep you out of trouble, heh.

Libby said...
