This And That And Brian Dennehy
I want to apologize for not being able to visit as much this week. This will be one of those hectic ones I am afraid! Grace and I did not get home until after 7 tonight...art club and sewing class on Mondays. Tomorrow evening I have a board meeting at church (I know, I know, I volunteered. What was *I* thinking! But what were THEY thinking? They asked ME to be secretary!) and Wednesday we are going to see the Hannah Montana concert/movie. Grace decided tonight that she MUST see it since "everyone I know is going Mom! Pleeeeaaaaassssseeee?" Heaven forbid she be the only 10 year old NOT to see it. Oh the shame. The horror. The senseless embarrassment. And my sweet, little nephew has been SO ill with a stomach virus. He is just now beginning to mend and my sis in law has come down with the same thing. If you think about it, I would so appreciate a quick prayer that they all recover soon. Speaking of prayers, I want to warmly thank our dear Gretchen for her sweet messages and constant prayer on behalf of our military friends, The Burrells. You may remember when I asked that prayers be said on behalf of Chris. He has been at Walter Reed for several weeks now, being treated for wounds received in Iraq. You can send Chris a message or see some recent family pictures by visiting his space on Caring Bridge. Chris is experiencing horrendous phantom pains (His left leg was amputated) and they were so strong yesterday that he missed watching the Super Bowl. His precious Mom, sweet Debbie, has never left his side. She is still sleeping in his room and has been his constant companion since he arrived back stateside. His Dad Mike is never far away and his brother and sister come as often as they can. He gets many visits from friends and family and a few celebrities as well. These have included football and baseball players, the Secretary of State and a few Generals thrown in for good measure! Just recently Chris was visited by singer Stevie Nicks, actor Jeff Daniels and actor Jon Voight. I am sure these visits were a great diversion from physical therapy and discomfort. My busy days aside, I have had a terrible time getting ON the computer since our Henry has decided it is THE place to sleep. Uh huh. The keyboard makes an excellent mattress. Good for the back (or, in HIS case, the tummy) don'tcha know. One last note...I just saw this auction on ebay. A vintage movie wardrobe place has a uniform shirt worn by one Mr. Dennehy. It's from a television film and yes. I want it. I crave it. It is one of the only things I do not have for my collection...an actual piece of *clothing* wardrobe. I have a watch and two lapel pins but no clothing. As you can guess, I was pretty excited until my husband gave me that, "Are you out of your living, loving mind Susie?" look. Sheesh...after all, it is ONLY $300.00. I just do not understand this man at all. Hmpf. I wonder if he has anything I can pilfer and sell on ebay....oh. You don't think that is such a great idea? Aw, not YOU too! Gee whiz...okay. Let's see how much change is in the jar...1,2,5 pennies...3 nickels...OOH! There's a quarter...that makes 45 cents right? Getting closer to that $300 all the time!
