It's a New Year...

This has been floating around, and I think it is too cool!!!  If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to enlarge it to get the full sense of what the photographer was doing! 

Well, today I am the proud owner of an iPad 2.  Hallelujah!  I had a couple of gift cards, enough to get a Kindle or Nook.  I got to thinking that I have a lot of "junk" gold (that sounds goofy!).  Broken chains, one earring of a set, stuff I don't ever wear, so we went to a reputable pawn shop to sell it.  I figured I'd be lucky to get $150, maybe $200 if I was extremely lucky.  Would you believe just how lucky I was?  $553!  So, I am now the proud owner of an iPad 2!!!  Miss Bee, I hope I have as much fun with mine as you do with yours.

I know it's been a long time since I've blogged much, but I truly miss all of you, especially the ones I don't visit on FaceBook!  I am not going to say one blooming thing about blogging frequency, since that always gets me in trouble.  Let me just say that I really enjoyed visiting you all and getting caught up, somewhat.....

I tried to link to Miss Bee's blog - and I can't remember how to do it!  I know they've changed stuff around a lot, but good gravy!  Please forgive me, Bee.  I will try to get back up to par.  Sheesh.  Scary.
Which reminds me, I finally went to the doctor today.  I've been without my thyroid meds for a couple of years now...remember my doctor who died in her boyfriend's chimney?  Anyway, I saw her replacement.  Wow.  What a doll!  When I explained that I didn't have insurance she reassured me that they would work with me, and if I needed anything at all, she'd do her best to get it done, and I really believed her!  I turn the big 6-5 this year, and will get Medicare (if there's anything left by November), and will go with Kaiser like Wally has.  He really loves the Senior Advantage program, and their services are really close to us.  So I will become a real, honest-to-goodness fogie! 

I don't want to use up all of my thoughts now.  They will have died by loneliness by the time I post again if I'm not careful....

Love ya!

Congrats on the ipad2! I love mine. Don't feel bad about not blogging and/or visiting. You do what you wanna do...or not! It's all OK.

Big hugs from chilly WPB, honey...

Good to see a post from you honey. I've missed you too. Blog when you feel like it and not when you don't. That keeps the pressure off.

I'm happy about your medication becoming a reality after two years. Medicare I hear is great. I've got five more years before I turn 65 but hubby gets it this year.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs and I love you too. :)

Congrats on selling some old junk for a good price! I wish I had some actual gold stuff lying around that I could unload but alas, I've never been fortunate enough to have been given any "real" jewelry. Just goes to show that no one loves me! :-)

I've cut way back on the amount of blogging that I do. I figured that no one was really reading anyway (at least if I base that assessment on the amount of comments that I get these days) plus when I do blog, it's more likely to be at The Distracted Wanderer which then ends up being some epic post that takes me hours to write. Oh well, maybe someday it will all pay off and I'll be a real writer - fingers crossed!
