Seems like so much has been going on in the world these last couple of weeks. We lost quite a few talented people.....Ed McMahon, Billy Mays & then both Farrah Fawcett & Michael Jackson on the same day! Unreal! I loved MJ & his music as long as I can remember.....grew up dancing to it at the local Disco back in the day ;), have almost all of his cd's & I put several of his songs on my iPod to listen to while working out. And Farrah.....she was just truly beautiful in every way! Who didn't want her hair??? I know I did, but sadly, I could never style mine that good :( Losing all these wonderful people so close together makes you realize just how short life really is! The sign above was at the Palace of Auburn Hills for about 2 days.....Motown won't be the same without MJ!
I'm way behind in posting my pics of the fireworks from the 4th. I took a BUNCH of pictures, but these 3 are my favorites. I had a hard time trying to figure out what setting to put my camera on as it was a last-minute decision to even go to the fireworks.
But I don't think they turned out too shabby.
This one is probably my absolute favorite, even though it's a little blurry. I just love all the colors!
Today when I woke up, I could barely get out of bed as my right foot was hurting & swelled up. Seems like my Osteoarthritis is flaring up.....again :( I was so hoping that the Aquamin Sea Minerals that I've been taking were helping & I wouldn't have to take the Mobic anymore. But I took one this morning as I gotta feel better by Monday because I have to work, especially since Jim won't be working the next 2 weeks & won't be getting paid, either :( They're doing a shutdown & making everyone use their vacation time for the next 2 weeks. Luckily, we did save some of his vacation pay when he got it 2 months ago, but we were hoping to keep it saved......unfortunately, now we'll have to use it to pay bills :(

That's all for now.....nothing much else to report. Don't forget to go to 7-11 today & get your free Slurpee :)

I know it has been a terrible season, so much sadness and death, hard to be optimistic but what else can we do. Your fireworks pictures are awesome...sorry about the two weeks off, hope everything is ok!
