This week's movers

Me and Earnhardt.  Monday, 8/13, I moved across the street at work to the new plant.  My job is still the same, but different.  I still have the same duties for both plants, but the old plant now has a new/old person in charge, Lisa that was my boss 5 years ago is back.  For me not much has changed, but I do not expect this will all go smoothly. Fireworks are likely.

And the billy has learned he can open the gate to his pen when we are careless in latching it. Now, we have to remember to wrap the chain around the post or he pushes it open.

Tony is in the hospital and not doing too well.  Helen stayed with him last night, jic he need anything.

The kids started school.monday.  They both are adjusting to the new school.  I was worried robert would have adjustment problems, but he has done just fine.  Hannah stayed with her friend up the road last night. They have 5 classes together.  That may get them in talking trouble.  But, so far all is well.

Today is church day.  But first walk day.  I have not been walking as much but try to go 3 miles on Saturday and sunday. Yesterday I did not do that.  One good thing about my new work space is that it is a half mile round trip between the two offices.  That is a good thing.

Hope Tony had a good night.

Has been under the weather.  Saturday, Aug 4, he was limping. By Sunday, he was carrying his back left leg.  I felt of it and found the foot was very sore.  Sister and I searched on the net and decided he had foot rot infection.  She shot him with penicillin sunday and monday. He was better sunday and was barely giving on that leg yesterday. Steve from work came out yesterday and shot him with a200, a more powerful antibiotic and trimmed his feet.  He is much improved today.  So much so that I am thinking now he just stepped on something and hurt the foot. We will have him a year Aug 27. He is a fine Billy and I would hate to loose him.

Today, I am off work going to Pam 's funeral. Then sister and I are setting up food for the family at her sisters house. Gotta go get started.

New things at my house

This is the tub/shower and my towel holders. The wall hanging starfish are cast iron from a fleemarket in Harrison and the towel holder on the floor is a 50 cent wire file or record holder.  I think it is a record holder, Helen thinks file holder.  Anyway, it makes a neat towel holder here by the tub.

Bigger view.

Closet view.  No closet door yet, but I have one that matches the bath door. 

Pretty light above the vanity that now wroks.


Bedroom re-arranged.


The cross on the wall is another cast iron piece. I got the magazine holder yesterday at a fleemarket for 8.50 and painted it and the chair I have had for years in a green shade.  They are both bent wood.  I am going to put towels in the magazine holder.  I don't know what I may do with the chair, but I think I will antique both with a light shade of gray.  They look much to  bright to me.

a little flower holder and flowers from my yard. That is the new vent on the wall.

It all is so very nice, and CLEAN.

We saw this at the flee market.  Looks like Poor boys and brother Gilbert.  If you would like to purchase this, it would set you back just $50 shy of $2000.  A real bargain.

Full bath

Floor and vanity with sink are done.  And I have a shower rod up so I can have either bath or shower.

It really looks pretty.

Poor Dead People

I am so pleased our dead people websites were resurrected.  There are some things that we placed on these websites that I can no  longer find on my computer.  If I still have the picture below on my computer, I would have no idea where to look for it.  It was sent to me by an old friend Vinita Terherst.  Vinita's grandmother and Dillard Poor's grandmother were sisters.  These families all lived in the Denver/Omaha area.

This is Lewis Poor, Kelly's grandfather.  Looks just like Kelly to me.

Dead or Alive

As Betty said, our Rootsweb family websites have risen from the dead.  So far, they are static because I can not get my new password to work to update the Powell site. Some of the links do not work with their new server.  Anyway, I  have added links to our family pages and our worldconnect family databases to the side links on this blog.  We are so pleased just to have them back online, even if we cannot at this time update or edit any of the pages.
