Tomorrow's bump is that my Editor, Peg, is getting married . . .at age 67 to a 38 year old . . . more power to her.

What the...?  67 and 38, those are numbers, Edward.  You know I can't do numbers!  LOL.  ;D  My bump today was that I went to see the new Star Trek Movie and WOW!  I can only say WOW!

    Well, actually, it's the second time I've been to see it.  The first time I saw it was without sound.  We went during a horizontal tornado which is a rare weather condition where the tornadic wind is lying on it's side and the sound went off twenty minutes into the movie.  So they wouldn't let us out of the theater and we had to wait.  Sounded like the roof was coming down! :o  My car got dented and my mind got a'skeered.  Anyhow, we got to go back today for free and see it with sound.  :D  Anniversary, 28 years of married bliss today or some such. ;)

    I made a few soldiers laugh today, this is always good to let them feel joy.  The soldiers made me laugh today, that is always good for my joy also.  So bumping works both ways here.

    I had a very satisfying day today, I wish there were more like it.

    Went to my koffee shop today, didn't have to sit on the corner with my koffee and kindle  :D and actually had 3 other people show up, a new lady even who is waiting for her kindle to be muled down WOO HOO   What a bump!  Some folks I thought might come didn't, oh well, that's their loss LOL  Big Bump for me today!

    Dori - wish you could come to my t'ai chi classes, it is all about balance.  The only times I have fallen since I started I did not even hurt myself.  I used to fall all the time, but not now.  Hope you aren't too sore tomorrow, and hope you find the right Wal Mart where the tupperware is  :D

    I am waiting for Star Wars to show up here, I want to see it and DH even said he would go with me WOOT

    t'ai chi classes help balance?  Very interesting.  I'm not elderly by any stretch of the imagination, but for some reason my balance has not been that great lately.  I'm not on any meds, other than allergy meds.  My glasses are fine.  I think I may need to check this out.
    Thanks Dona,

    I do Taoist t'ai chi - there are groups all over the US, big centers in Fla and Colorado.  This particular style of t'ai chi was developed by a Taoist monk who had parkinsons and needed the balance.  It really does work.  Where do you live deb?

    (Hey deb: I've found that doing yoga has improved my balance a lot.)

    My bump has occurred over a couple of days. Our dog, Duke, was having 'tremors' on Wednesday.  Looked like seizures to me, but the vet said that since they mainly involved his upper body, they were not true seizures.  We did a bunch of blood work and kept a log of how long and how frequently the tremors were occurring.  He had more than 50 by the end of the night.  His eyes were dilated, and he seemed to be off in another place.  Fortunately the issue stopped by the next morning.  We think he either ingested horse/cow manure with anti-worm medication in it or ate some mushrooms!  Our dog was tripping!  I'm glad that he is better and DH says he won't take them walking in that area again (so as to avoid contaminated poop), so hopefully it doesn't recur, although we would know what is going on the next time.

    Our other dog, Huckleberry, had a lump by his shoulder removed yesterday and when the effects of surgery wore off, he was restless and his stitches started bleeding.  We got him some pain meds and convinced him to settle down, and this morning his surgical wound looks great and isn't bleeding at all.

    I'm just glad that both dogs are doing well.  I try to be thankful for all of the good things in my life, but sometimes it takes things to go wrong before I realize how good I have it.

    Mine for today was to sit outside in the sun but under a shady umbrella and read my Kindle and appreciate the fact that the text wasn't fading. I have only had to exchange it one time but there is always that little frisson of wondering...

    I am a bit late for this one, but my bump last night was lots of hugs and kisses from my grandkids.

    Today was spending all day with Larry, even though he spent most of it sleeping off the effects of the drugs they gave him this morning for his oral surgery. He sure was goofy this afternoon and doesn't remember a thing!  ;)

     Celebrating my sister's 52nd birthday with her. In 1994 she was diagnosed with breast cancer after having originally been diagnosed as having a cyst. Once the surgeon figured out the error, she had a mastectomy three weeks later, then chemo treatments. Today, she's doing great and is probably healthier than a lot of 52 year olds because she takes excellent care of herself.

    The BEAUTIFUL weather did for me. I like clouds with the Vegas summer. It makes the weather more bareable.
    Resulted in:
    -Two trips to the dog park
    -Took my bike out and rode to the library (last time nearly fainted when i got off my bike had to call someone to come get so I wouldn't blackout on my way home)
    -finally worked up the guts to cut my hair. cut about ten-twelve-ish inches. Hadn't had hair this short in over eighteen years

    My bump today:
    Walking out back and seeing the 5x9 paver patio I made yesterday.  Just big enough for 2 iron rocker type chairs, and a small table in between.  My new reading spot. :D  It totally beats the low lawn chair I've been using, that I had to move every time the sprinklers turned on.  It didn't seem like alot of work when I thought it up :-\, but the ground was really unlevel.  I feel it today.  But I have a new reading place (you all know how important that is),  I gave my old reading place up 5mo. ago when I bought hubby a new BBQ for his B-day.  The first words out of his mouth were  "But that's were you read!!!"  "That just tells you how much I love you"  I replied. He has been feeling bad ever since, seeing me in the lawn chair every night.  With him and the kid out of town this week, and the house to myself,  I guess I got motivated. I still need a foot rest, but the Home Depot bucket worked out fine last night.
