Happy Leap Day

February 29, 2016

Good morning from sunny and warm Florida.  It's also Happy Leap Day.  An extra day for everybody to have fun.   I got up very early this morning, and I've been struggling with Google and Internet Explorer and the internet connection here.  

Between the three of these wicked naughty institutions, I haven't had access to my blog or the internet.  After several hours of trying everything I could think of, I am finally here (and back on the internet.  Phew!!  Now as long as these things keep working okay, I'll be a happy camper.

At one point, I did manage to find my emails, and there were a couple of beautiful scrap pages waiting there for me.  However, I'll have to find my way back to the email to download the pages so that I can share them here. 

We had a great trip coming down here to Florida.  The problems began when we got to the airport and the car rental service wasn't in much of a hurry to come pick us up.  We had us quite a go round, and finally they showed up. 

Daughter Audrey and her friend got here before we did, so she went to the market to pick up a few things to tide us over till today when we can go and do a bit of food shopping.  Pogo is slowly getting used to everything here again.  Right now, he is curled up in a blanket on the sofa, having a nice nap.

Daughter Deanne sent me lots more photos of Aurora Kay.  Today I have an old newborn photo of Aurora's daddy, Bobby, to share along with a new photo of Aurora.  My goodness, they look so much alike (at least right now).   This first photo is my grandson, Bobby.

And this is his daughter, Aurora.

See what I mean?  They almost look like the same baby.  An updated version, of course.

And here's a photo of the proud new Papa with his new daughter. 

There's more news to tell but I'll have to save it for tomorrow.  Joe wants to go to the pool, but he can't until after Audrey and I get back from shopping.  He's going to stay here with Pogo.   So I guess it need to get busy and get dressed so that we can head out for the market.  It's going to be 81F degrees here today.  Wicked tough to handle, huh?  haha.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Edna B,

Happy Florida Day.... I am glad that you made it safe and all is well. Whew really glad that you were able to get some internet!

Love the photos of the baby and her daddy. Wow yes they really do look so much alike. Wow. Amazing genetics.

I am heading back to bed. I just wanted to check on your blog. I won the Fairy Challenge at DigiArtDen.... I won a very beautiful kit called Ocean Wonderland.

Cisco and I had to supervise the maintence men today. They came in and replaced all the burners and switches on my stove. It was a hassle cooking on that stove. In the middle of a meal the darn burners would just stop working. They also brought me some new drip pans, fixed the boy's shower and brought me some new slats for my patio door. Cisco had to stay on them tho. He wanted the jobs done right. Then he came and took a nap with mama.

Going to close for now... Hugs to all in the Florida Sunshine... Beth and Cisco
