My parents used to take me up to my great-grandmother's house in McHue, Arkansas for a good part of the summer to help with her chicken houses.  McHue is back in the Arkansas hills but we called them mountains.  I loved it there mostly because my two cousins, Winfred Lloyd and Larry were there just itching to get me out and show me things -- so as soon as I got there, we were gone.  The cousins showed me a tree with bees buzzing all around and they said we would leave it there for the bears.    They showed me tracks in the dirt of a mountain lion.  They showed me how to catch snakes and how to grab catfish out of the pond.  And after a day of running all over the mountain, we'd come home to Granny's fried chicken and peach pies.  Everything she cooked was  cooked on a wood stove.  Granny didn't work us too hard because she knew the creek was calling us.  But when we were in the chicken houses,  I spent a great deal of time trying to save sick chickens's lives.   Maybe that's when I decided to be an R.N.?
Good summer memories and just look at all the valuable things I

My vet told me if you are still using Frontline, you are wasting your money as fleas have gotten immune to it.

If you take your pet walking or running with you, they need water too.   There is watering equipment that attaches to your pants for you pet.

Ten Mistakes Theme Park Visitors Make

Millions of people will be visiting theme parks and amusement parks all over the world this summer, and most will have a great time. Others, however, will make these common mistakes:

"I never plan, I just go." I'm not saying you can't have a good time if you just head to a park and wing it, but try some easy tips that can help your visit go more smoothly.

"I'm too old for the carousel."  2000 has been named the International Year of the Carousel by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. So, don't pass that carousel by when you're in a park this year, give it a spin and remember the first time you rode a painted pony. Find out more about merry-go-rounds.

"I can take the heat." Fun in the summer sun doesn't have to lead to sunburn, heat exhaustion, or worse, if you know how to beat the heat.

"I'd rather stay dry." Water rides and waterparks are a great way to keep cool. Before you go, dress to get wet and check out a few waterpark tips.

"No, I don't have a coupon." Many theme parks, at least at some point in their season, offer discounts as a way of bringing people in. The trick is finding these offers.

"Safety? Not my problem." Even in the fantasy world of a theme park there may be danger. Always follow park rules and learn what you can do to avoid accidents.

"Stop whining and move it, kids! We've got 42 more rides to do." Kids just want to have fun, but they stop having fun and start getting cranky when they get bored or tired or are pushed past their limits. When out for family fun, remember to take things at a kid's pace.

"I can visit my local park anytime." Support your local amusement park. It'll save you money on gasoline, and it will also help keep that park alive in an increasingly competitive business. Every year more irreplaceable historic amusement places close forever, only to have their host community discover, too late, what a treasure they have lost.

"I think I'm gonna be sick!" Getting sick can ruin your fun day at the park, so take steps to avoid it.

"Why write it down? I can remember where I parked.". Unless you drive a '56 Nash Metropolitan, chances are good that your car won't necessarily stand out among the other thousand cars in that theme park parking lot, so plan now how you're going to find it again.
(just in case you forgot, here's a couple of '56 Nash Metropolitans)  

May the spatula be with you.....

My mom got mad at my dad the other day and went shopping
to relieve her irritation. When she returned home she
informed him that she had purchased ten new dresses.
"Ten!" he hollered, "What could any woman want with ten
new dresses??" My mom calmly replied, "Ten new pairs
of shoes."

A. All right, everybody get in the car.
