The Aluminum Asylum
Our home on wheels

Hmmm, my Friday post just appeared.  I know not what the universe has against me, but I musta' done something horrible in my past.  Well, we won't go there.

It is now Monday, and we have sold the mobile home in Weslaco.  The couple from Houston visited twice today, the second trip were the "negoations".  I always make myself scarce during this intense Paulie thing...don't want to be around when he gets down to brass tacks as they say.

We have a new family member...her name is Lucy. Lucy is a yorkiepoo just like Mack.  She was born on September 1st so that makes her 8 weeks old tomorrow.  As soon as I can find my camera, I will shoot a few photos and post them. Lucy's parents are almost identical to Mack's. 5 lb mommy poodle and 3.5 lb daddy Yorkie. She is coal black and at night you can't see her at all. We will have to get a blinking or glow in the dark collar. There were two males and two females.  Figured I wanted a female not to have dueling alpha males...and I loved her color(which may actually change...) so she will look great in pink!

We had a buzy weekend.  Saturday night Paul's cousin Maryann and her husband Russ came over for dinner.  Paul made some pretty wicked bbq chicken(normally he makes burnt offering...).  I made a salad and opened a can of pork and beans.  Mary and Russ are here for only a few days, taking some of her dad's stuff back to St. Louis.  So on Sunday, we went to their place and had Uncle Ben's special recipe for red sauce and pasta.  Delish!  The sausage was "imported" from St Louis and was really really good.

Sunday was reorganize and first pack up day. We were up at 7 am vaccuming and moping floors. I cleaned the Texas Room.  It was packed with "stuff" like tubs of photos, all my caking supplies and just a whole lot of junk that went into the trash.  It was so dusty all I could do was sneeze.  Worked our tushies off.  We are both exhausted.  I think Grandpa must be exhusted too...he hasn't shut up for four four days!  Get's on MY nerves...jeesh, and I have only been back two weeks!

More tomorrow.
