Honking Congrats, Dagmar - it looks ready to move it without any work.

(Can you change the music once you get there?)

Dagmar, your house has a theme song! It looks rather like a prewar bungalow, with that deep porch overhang. This is fantastic, when a woman buys her own home. I never felt so powerful as when I signed those papers with no one's name on the deed but my own. Hang in there through all the last-minute paperwork that comes up between now & the closing. I felt very lucky I'd worked in law firms years ago & knew all the stupid little things that can delay a closing, because mine was delayed beyond the target date, though at least it closed in the same month as planned.

Allison, congratulations to your son. I think I'm not clear on the amount & gender of your offspring. Is this the youngest one & the last one not in college? If so, that may make the awards ceremony that much sweeter.

I just came home from the grocery store, wrestling a pork loin of enormous dimensions encased in Cryovac, over which I'm refraining (with great difficulty) making really dirty jokes. I'll cut it up for a couple roasts and chunks for stew. It looks like a pre-evolution ancestor of something.

Bill sorry I never use the computer with the sound on - I will definitely change the music once I'm there!

Dagmar - what a great house, and truly in "move in" condition. I'm sure you're feeling that July can't come fast enough. Congrats.

Dagmar, congrats on the house! It looks quite livable and the yard looks lovely. Any update on Mudpie?

Allison, your son's accomplishments are quite impressive. Kudos to you all.

We're finally getting some nice weather here so I did a lot of yard work over the weekend. I generally spend every weekend in May buying annuals and planting them in various containers. I have lots of containers so a carload of flowers hardly makes a dent! There's a farmer's market nearby where a few vendors set up shop for the season, so I get very familiar with them.

I've managed to do some walking, even though I'm limping worse than ever these days. I'm getting a cortisone shot on Friday and am hoping it helps. I can ride my recumbent exercise bike without too much pain but I'm feeling increasingly limited in what I can do.

Any news on Jessica and the girls?

Yay Dagmar! The house looks lovely! I took the sound suggestion and ran the slide show on mute. I love the floors.

Mudpie is going back to the vet tomorrow to get her abdomen palpitated again. The vet wants to make sure the lump is still there and wasn't just a big lump of poo - If it's still there then we have to do an ultrasound and then probably surgery.
