Fragmented Friday

It seems like a long time since I've done a Friday Haiku. I have to get back to that one of these days. Not now, though. There's too much on my mind, it seems.

This is July 4th weekend. It is my sincerest hope that everyone really, really, enjoys themselves. Safely. I want all fingers, toes, boobs, butts and eyes in place and accounted for, unbroken, unscarred and undamaged, come Tuesday morning.

Resetting the house in preparation for Grannie's return continues apace. It isn't any easier, yet. But it will get there.

She's slowly rounding into shape. Whatever it was in her, that laid her low, seems to be breaking up a bit and she's breathing better every day. She called me yesterday morning at 6:30am - in the freaking morning - to tell me that they ought to be able to vacuum the oil up in the Gulf. She seems to think that if archaeologists can vacuum sand up off the bottom, they ought to be able to use the same process to clean the surface. Maybe she's right.

She acknowledges and thanks everyone for the well wishes that have been coming her way. So do I.

Yay, I'm first to comment! I love that Grannie was thinking about the oil in the gulf and thought to call you about it so very early in the morning. Have a fun and safe Fourth!

I'm actually spending 5 days in Ireland but I'll have fun for sure. And I just love that Grannie was coming up with solutions for the gulf. Sounds like my father, age 93, who's always giving me opinions about current events. I want to be like that!

I like the way Grannie thinks. Any good ideas to help the Gulf should be explored.

Glad she is feeling better.

Well, now doesn't Grannie sound sharp as a tack!? She may have something there!
And you have a safe weekend, too. I know mine will be now that you warned me away from popping firecrackers in my cleavage... ;-)

I think I love your Grannie a bit more each time you write about her. :)

You have a good 4th as well!

Well, why not?

Happy fourth of July to you and your family Lou!

At 0630? I think she cut you some slack!

Glad that she is doing well and her mind is as fit as ever! So that is the clearest sign she is returning to health!

Glad she's improving! Hope you make it back in one piece too! Sadly, the first fourth with my grandson he got burnt by a sparkler. :( He was sitting in my lap.

And I am up in Stowe, VT, where we'll be able to see fireworks from the balcony off our room. No danger there.

You have fun yourself. Safely.

P.S. I'm so glad that Grannie is on the mend.
