Seems like it's been ages since I did a *real* post. In reality, it's been about a week.
I've been busy - - still looking for a job. No luck yet.
J bought me the last three seasons of Sanford and Son on dvd as an early birthday present - - Wal Mart dropped the price to $13.72 - - so I've been having a S&S marathon the last few days. I knew when they showed them on TV Land they were leaving out the scene with the n word, but it turns out they were also skipping one or two scenes in every ep to make room for more commercials. So I saw scenes I had forgotten were even there. IMDb tells me they're making a movie version of S&S, with Bernie Mac. Not sure how I feel about that yet.
Over the weekend, we were at my aunt and uncle's Saturday for a fish fry, and at J's mom and dad's Sunday for Father's Day. J's paternal biological grandmother is up from Florida. She's my least favorite granny of J's. She's always negative, never has a positive thing to say unless it's about herself. And she says if her youngest son moves up here, she's coming too. Bad news for J's mom, who would have custody of her most of the time. I didn't much like Granny Purvis before I ever met her. J's dad is her oldest child, and when she divorced his dad and remarried, her new husband turned out to be abusive, to her and J's dad, and later to his own kids. Did she leave him? No. She gave J's dad away and moved to Florida with her new husband. That turned out to be good for J's dad - - he was raised by one of the sweetest women I've ever met. I didn't know his adoptive dad - - he died when J was just a year old - - but he and Granny Kirkley did a great job raising my FIL. In other words, I hope Granny Purvis doesn't move up here.
J had his first fillings done today, and he's miserable tonight. First his mouth was numb and he couldn't even drink properly, and now he's in pain. And he has appointments for more fillings and a root canal the next two consecutive Wednesdays.
While we were at the dentist's office, I finally, after nearly two years, read my digital camera manual and figured out how to do pix with one object in color and the others in black and white. Probably not a big deal for most of you, but anyone who knows me knows I'm not the most technologically inclined people in the world. Even desert_rifka
(love you, sis!) figured out how to do this ages ago. I'm going to try macro pix tomorrow.
I'm also trying, for the first time ever, making cinnamon pickles. I've done regular sweet pickles, but it was years ago. Wish me luck!
And now, the results of my manual reading. I think it's just the neatest thing ever but J says I'm too easy to impress:
