Tonight I'm off to another #@$% Retirement Party.To say I hate them is tantamount to saying Perez Hilton is a loyal and loving guy. I have been "retired" due to health issues for 7 years and never experienced the closure of Retirement Party festivities but have enjoyed the accolades and love LTD brings. You ask....Why go then?....thinking.....still thinking........

Why for the love of all thats sugar does a sunaphobic move to the Okanagan? For 20 years he has cowered under an umbrella, wearing long sleeves, Tilley Hat, 80 SPF sun block and spouted study after study warning me of the dangers of the sun....until now????? Now that he is a born again RAWFOODIE, he has found new Studies praising real sunshine and gasp##$%$#@ sits in direct sunlight, thus dispelling our family story about him being a Vampire.

Up by 7:30 this am welcoming the Polyester Crowd on their golf carts...what happened to exercise, quiet mornings, and coffee on the deck.....ahhh now replaced with balls crashing into the house, screams of OH SHIT and strange men looking in the window. Going back to the beach...safer, quieter, cooler....

The summer of the Toe Thong is coming to a close. To celebrate I am going to the beach for the weekend. The $1.98 yellow air matress has amazingly survived, even with the little black dog lounging on it. Temps are supposed be in the high 30's and I intend to finish off the summer beach grub while floating on the cool waters of lake Okanagan. Hope you all are happily winding down as well.

So ...every lunch the Healthy Annoying One brings me a green drink. Kale. banana, orange juice,yadda, yadda, yadda...for which I thank him profusely and accessorize the hell out of. Will I go to Hell? WHATEVER! Compromise that's what makes this marriage work.

Please if you care people send the Clean Sweep people around or just send Laurie and Sarah. The summer feels like 6 months long at this point. We have hosted a grand total of 19 people since June and stuff is literally everywhere. Yesterday was the breaking point...unexpected company arrived Friday at 6pm... not a problem..tossed potatoes (couldn't find the Tinfoil)and chicken (where for the love of Julia is the the Oyster Sauce)in the oven and looked for but never found the cherry crisp in the deep freeze nor could I find the ice cream. At this moment I am searching for the Shamwow, the plastic tubing, a long extension cord and my dog groomer bag. Company is here until Monday and after they leave, I am going to purge and when you live with a hoarder that can only mean good times.

Virtually raised at the track by parents who believed math(combinations and permutations}was best taught by practical teaching methods, It is here,I honed my handicapping skills. Birthday week allowed me the opportunity to pass on my gift to the children.
Meet Sassy Sarah. A grey horse, hence the first rule of the track...always bet the grey horse to win. We did and smiled all the way to the wicket. Oh, screaming GO TONY and USE THE WHIP didn't hurt either.

Slowly starting to raise my sad Gram head from my tear soaked pillow. She left us...climbed on that Big Silver Bird and returned to her anxious mom and brother. Something needs to happen to airlines and their laisaiz faire policy regarding children over 14 travelling. I am not impressed.... Why is there not an observation level where you can watch the boarding and be certain that child gets on that plane. Instead you watch them pass through Security drop into the dark hole that is the waiting area...when a 12 year old boy can disappear on his street and his body found later at a next door neighbours.....yes, I feel you are with me now. Changes need to be made. Oh and that was me peering through the Vodka and Gin bottles outside the Duty Free window trying to make sure my girl got on the plane and then watching said plane take off ending My Watch.
