Doctor's Visit

Well now, went to the doctor's today for my 6 month check up. I don't know what is wrong with me, I just cannot seem to get this body under control. So today, I had a full work up of tests and now will wait for the results. Doc seems to think perhaps I need a anti-depress and that I should see a upper digestive specialist because DH had to squeal on my gagging when I eat thingy. The peeing the bed and pants isn't fun either, so maybe need to see a urologist too. OMG when is this stuff going to end. Heaven forbid should I get any worse then I already am!
Now, I'm heading out to the sewing room to find some Autumn colored fabric to make a table runner with my new Accuquilt Go. I got the new die "Rose of Sharon" from Amazon and it arrived yesterday, so I'm getting real antsy to get at it.

Mystery Quilt V

Some really ugly purple fabric, but it should make for an interesting Mystery Quilt. I've decided to use the wrong side of it as the background. The name is "Worms and Jelly Rolls #1. So here is the fabric:

I know I did say ugly --- but we are going to see if putting it together as a quilt will improve the fabric choices

My Share and other tidbits

Today, I baked a batch of Oatmeal cookies, made breakfast of orange juice, and egg sandwiches. I still have several things on my list including doing a manicure and perhaps get a quilt top cut out or at least started.
Sunday, we had a rather interesting day at the car show. First, there was only one car there really showing support for the 9/11 which they said was the reason. Second, we were almost kicked out because they thought our Pontiac G6 isn't a classic car! Oops, first thing if you are having a "Classic" car show, you should know what a "Classic" car is and what is considered a "Classic" car. GMC no longer makes Pontiac and 2010 was the last year that the G6 was made, therefore it is no longer in production as is considered a "Classic" car. DH made sure that the character who tried to make us move knew this or knows it now!
Then we went to dinner, oops another mistake, I should always go where I think it is good food and good service. I don't mind paying for good food and good service, but I really want to slug these place that have ah OK food and lousy service.
It kind of started out this way, DH one of his friends and I sit down, it takes about 5 minutes for a waitress to come and take our drink order and to tell us that "our" waiter is busy and will be with us shortly. About 10 minute later our "Waiter" arrives and he immediately acknowledges the men with "football" talk and totally ignores me. Well, guess what I must have been invisible because the same thing happen with my dinner. It was a real mess, not butter for the baked potato, and my sandwich was totally messed up and nothing that I had asked for! I would not have left a tip if I were paying, but DH did. Oh his food was already, until midnight when he was up rolfing in the bathroom.
We will not go back there again.
One good point to our 100 mile trip, we stopped at our friend Jerry's and he was there. It has been almost 3 years since we have heard from him. He disappeared in 2008 and now after knee surgery, and several bouts in the hospital we found him. He doesn't answer is phone and we were down there twice and beat on his door and he wasn't anywhere around. I worried about him because of his age,but now know he is OK!
OK, lunch time so I'll be back.

Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c shortening
1-1/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1/3 c light molasses(opt dark)
1-3/4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 c uncooked oatmeal
1/2 c chopped nuts (I prefer walnuts)
1 c raisins (try muscat {white})
Oven 400° (mod hot). Mix shortening, sugar, eggs and molasses. Measure flour and dry ingredients in separate bowl, add to shortening mixture. Stir in oatmeal, nuts and raisins. Drop on to lightly greased cookie sheets, bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly brown. Note: if you use dark molasses, they will be a lot browner so you need to watch carefully so they do not burn.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Oh so yummy! mmmmmm good!

Sunday, today we are heading out for a car show. No we are not taking one of DH collector car, because the show is about 45 miles from home and I do not think he is comfortable driving that distance in one of the classics. Not even our new baby is going to get this run, so we will take "my" baby our Pontiac G6, which is a classic anyway except she is only 3 years old, however; she only has 12000 miles. Boy have those increased since I told DH to start driving it because the Ford Explorer was a gas gussler.
Here is our new baby, Ms Rita is a 1981 Chevrolet Malibu Classic in Seafoam Green with 48000 miles and dream to ride and drive:
So here she is, pretty, huh? Now, she has spinners on the wheels and they are so pretty in the sun.
Well, DH is giving the dogs a bath, it is always so noisy, because we are taking them with us to the car show this afternoon. I made some cookies to take along as a snack, but at this rate, I may have them eaten before we even get out the door.
Now, it is time to get some breakfast. Just some juice, eggs and coffee, maybe a piece of toast would be nice.

It is September

September already and Labor Day is gone. Oh my! My Tootie Frutti quilt was enter into a show... my b and sil must really like it. I'm very happy about that.
The cooler weather yesterday and today is certainly a change from Saturday where it was 90 deg. in the shade at the German Festival.
And what do you think about Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. calling citizens who love America SOB's. Wonder how many real labor union members appreciated that comment. I certainly glad that I don't belong to a union now days. I remember the days when the rank and file members of a union actually loved their country and all the freedom that we afforded them. So what the "h__l has happened.  When did we start calling American citizens SOB's because they didn't think the same as you!
I'm wondering about the Democratic party or as Mrs. Clinton said, "rather be called a "Progressive"! Or maybe a "Socialist"! and if we remember our history we know what a "Socialist" is don't we?
God Bless America! and God Bless her citizens!
Good Night and let not your heart be troubled, tomorrow is another day, if the "Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise".
