Happy Christmas and Max...

Well over two finally won out, I have been working again on Happy Christmas, Im about 1/3 done, so lets just move on.  I have enjoyed stitching away and reading on my new little toy.  Yes, I broke down and bought a Kindle HD, for the trip to St Augustine.  So here's my new little toy..
This was my second Kindle HD, I ordered one from Amazon, and guess what it would not charge... so I sent it back.  Then my husband took me to Staples and we bought one direct, well it worked and I was pleased.  I was even more pleased when I was able to transfer my audible account with the books I have downloaded that are sitting in my library there.  I also have downloaded a kindle book, which is the one I'm listening to now titled " The Grand Old Party".  They offer whispernet (words to voice) now on most of their books, so you can either read them (like I did on the plane and elsewhere) or listen while stitching.  This was the final selling point. 

Now the one thing I'm not really pleased with is the fact that I can't get YouTube Videos.   Sometimes I do like to listen music.  Doesn't everyone?

So here it is...

The other news is Max is out of the crate now, he made it through the week and he is doing so well.  He is still on his antibiotic (which he hates).  He still will not jump up on high things.  He stays in my chair, most of the time, he doesn't even do the stairs much.
He still wants to show you his incision
 So guess who like's the crate..
Annie, the Mama, she is Max's is mom.  She did sit next to cage when he was in there.  Now she is not that motherly, I think she sort of turned them over to me, but sometimes she acts like she likes them..

Alot's been going on...

Gosh, its been way over two months since I last posted.. I knew it was a long time but I had no idea it was that long.  So let me briefly updated on what has been going on.

We have had very sick cat, named Max.  I have mentioned him before.  He has megacolon due to chronic constipation.  As I had mentioned before in earlier posts, we had him on propulsid, and fluids to keep things moving.  Well he had a flare in August and the end of September.  With each of these came a run to the Emergency room, enemas, fluids and painful things being done to Max of a personal nature.  We knew in our hearts that we would have to go ahead with the surgery, however we due to leave for Florida.

On October 3, we left for Florida, St Augustine to be exact. Our son lives in St Augustine, along with one grandchild and the other grandchild is in Tampa (he's divorced).  A Tampa visit was out of the question this time, but we were hoping that Stephanie would allow us to see Gabriel.  But no, she is her usual self.  We can't stir up anything now, till her and Dan officially get divorced and sell the house, once that is done then and things remain the same, then we will see a lawyer about grandparents rights.

We did have a wonderful visit for 4 days and see my cousins, and my nieces new baby.  Here's a look
The South Wind Inn (where we stayed)

The Ponce de Leon - now Flagler College

We got around an saw alot of other places, like Fort Matanzas, Nombres de Dios, and the Lightner Museum which was the Alcazar Hotel.  We met up with family and did some shopping and eating at along St George Street.

Here's my niece, her baby Oliver, my husband and son Dan

I have been doing some stitching, I started redoing Happy Christmas over one. I will post in a few days.
