Scary dolls, High School and the Judge…

 

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post and link back to our host Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin’ Time.

It’s not too late to join in on the fun and we would love to have you!

I am SO behind in my blogging and in my life! The editing of The Stranger in My Recliner however, is nearly done. I missed posting Friday Fragments last week and this week I missed posting Writing Wednesday. I am going to work harder to stay caught up.

* Last Sunday after several days of marathon editing, I thought I better do a back-up, save to drop box and send myself an e-mail. As I clicked on my document to save it, I noticed the size changed. To make a very long story short- a Verizon and a Microsoft update were done at the same moment I hit save. My file, my book was corrupted. It disappeared and I could not find it anywhere. All ended well several hours, only $30 and a visit with the geek squad later, my book was back. My hair is grayer!

* Our Eagles really beat up on the New York Giants on Sunday night. I felt a teeny-tiny bit bad for my son-in-law and my grandson. They are big time Giants fans. Just a teeny bit!

* This Saturday night I will be speaking at the kick-off of a new foundation called No More Helpless Daughters. The foundation was started by friend, Ujwala Dixit to give more attention to preventing domestic violence and abuse.

* I was invited to appear as a guest on a TV show that is created and produced by the high school students at Wissahickon High School. The kids were all no-nonsense, so professional and I had so much fun. The show airs on local cable channels. I am going to post the link when it’s available.

* After the TV show we went to see the movie, The Judge at our favorite movie theatre with large, comfy leather recliners. The movie starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Robert Duvall was very, very good. I predict Oscars.

Friday Fragments The Judge

* The VA messed up my husband’s meds for the 3rd time. I called the pharmacist when the pills arrived because I thought the color was darker. He swore to me they were the correct pills. That night he got sick. I took him to a different VA hospital emergency room. I just couldn’t go to the one in Philadelphia. His blood pressure was extremely high. They quickly got us the right medication and sent us home. I don’t know what to do. I wrote to our state reps and they never answered. Attorneys won’t get involved because there is no value, which means he didn’t die. So frustrating and scary!

* One of my favorite Facebook groups is having a conference in NASHVILLE!! I am excited. I will share more about that later.

* A woman that I work closely with took leave a few months ago because her brother was critically ill and she needed to go to Africa to care for him. She is back and all we know is they are not letting her come back to work…. yet. I am guessing 21 days. I hope they make it 30 days, to make sure. I really like this woman a lot and I am praying for her. This #Ebola virus is so scary and excuse me if I sound dumb but why are we allowing the people who are infected to travel all over the states. Shouldn’t the infected be quarantined in ONE place, like near the CDC?

* My doctor has been out of the flu vaccine for 2 weeks.

* Does it seem to you that Halloween is getting scarier and scarier every year? It seems to me the trend is to make it all about an adult party holiday and less of a fun night for children. I am so not okay with people decorating with severed heads and hazmat suits. It seems like such poor taste. And then there are the dolls, yikes!
