Trying for a picture

Nancy emailed me instructions about how to add pictures. I'm trying it out now. Love, Rita

I got a picture on my profile

I finally got a picture on my profile, but I can't figure out how to add pictures to the main blog page. Can anybody email me how to do it? Love, Rita

I have some pictures of Guy and Joan and the new dog they've taken in, Amber - Laura's dog.
We saw the deer -Jane Doe, Martha, and Sprite (Martha's fawn). The other twin fawn (Pepsi) didn't come. Jane Doe is so tame. We sat still and continued our conversation and soon she took pieces of cookie and grapes from my hand. I wish I had taken my camera with me out to their outdoor patio spot where we had drinks and fed the deer.
Guy sure has a way with his animals -four dogs (they follow him wherever he goes) 2 cats, who are more independent, a pair of guineas (we gathered 6 eggs from her nest) and a flock of chickens and one duck.
Joan keeps 4 hummingbird feeders filled every day and it's so interesting to watch all the birds.
We slept downstairs and before we went to bed Guy told me if I was up during the night to step outside on the lower deck. I went out there just before 5 AM. In the dark I was surrounded by a chorus of crickets, frogs, cicadas and other animal sounds and the prettiest sound of all was the creek gurgling and bubbling! What a wonderful feeling to be standing there in the dark but with the sounds of life all around me! I stayed there about ten minutes before I felt a mosquito and came in.
The next morning after a breakfast of guinea eggs Guy drove Bill and me all over their land in their orange 4 wheel drive jeep-like truck. We went up and down the mountain and over big rocks where the jeep was tilted over and across creeks. Amber was on a leash in the back of the truck but the other dogs were running all around. When they would find a rabbit or squirrel they would howl and bark, making a racket! Once when we slowed down Amber jumped out and was hanging by her leash with her back feet barely touching the ground. Guy quickly stopped and lifted her up so she wouldn't break her neck. Then he shortened the leash and had me hold it to take up the slack so she couldn't jump out again. She's still a puppy and gets so excited, but is learning a lot from the other dogs and Guy.
I'd better close this and post it and go to bed. Love, Millie


I'm trying my hand at this stuff. Hope this comes through. Millie

Vivi's First Dance

Here is a cute video of my granddaughters.

See how easy it is to add a video...

I finally figured it out!

I finally figured it out! I was gone over the weekend. My 3 beautiful daughters and I had a Girls Getaway. It was organized by Louise and hosted by Helen at Harrah's hotel at Tunica. We had a wonderful time, with lots of eating and laughing and bonding, shopping, and sitting in the Jacuzzi in our swimsuits, (and just a little slots). It was wonderful, and I'll send pictures when I figure out how. Sunday we went to Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Germantown with Mohamed and Linda and Magi, and then to brunch at Yia Yia's, and then Christie and I went shopping in Memphis AND Jonesboro before we came home. So I was tired and didn't get to the email til today. And then I had to read back to the first invitations to figure out how to get on. If this works, I'll try more later. Love, Rita

And then there were two...

Janet, you're here! So it IS possible for all of us to blog on this same site! Now Rita, Millie and Genie need to figure out how to log on board. I'll know we've arrived on the day Madeleine signs in:).

We're just home after 5:30 Mass, and then joined Anne and Peter and girls at Casa Blanca for Mexican.
We don't have any special plans for the weekend but look forward to it anyway.
Did you know Millie and Bill are celebrating their 40th anniversary at Red Apple Inn Restaurant with Guy and Joan? They plan to spend Sunday night with them, too. Also, Millie's pharmacy class reunion is at Paris Landing on Kentucky Lake next weekend. That's less than an hour from here, so they're coming here on Sunday evening to spend two nights with us! Millie said she must have the travelling bug. They are going to Chattanooga the next weekend to visit Daniel and family.

I think this is a great idea (if we can all figure out how to use it!) I'll look forward to seeing your pictures and writing back and forth. We sisters are high tech! I love you all. Janet

Patience please?

Someday, soon, I KNOW I'll be good at this! Then I'll feel more comfortable asking everyone to join in. And we can add pictures, and all my sisters will have access to blog along with me, and it will be FUN! I'm working on it.

Mission Control, we have a problem...

Gremlins must be playing on this blogsite! I've had problems getting on, then suddenly it pops up?
Hopefully, things will work better later. I'll have to think about that tomorrow. " Tomorrow IS another day ".

Here we go!

This is my new blog. Lisa showed me how to get started and I hope you will all contribute any news that you would like to share.
