Just to set the record straight and Illinois is proud…

I need to set the record straight on the turkey and the miniature pony.  I was correct about the fox catching poor Snow.   As for the rest of the animals I am posting a quote from my sister.  “The animals on the farm were given to animal rescues or caring people. The only animal purchased was the miniature pony for my son-in-law's birthday. The other animals came from other animal rescues.”  Thanks to my sis for helping me get  the facts straight.

And now I sadly admit that there has not been an awful lot happening here in Illinois lately to make me feel a great sense of pride.  Julia Collins, thank you for brightening my days the last 3 weeks.

  3. Beth, I just love that Julia, she is smart and calm. I watch Jeopardy every night it's on. I saw a show in person when I was out in Hollywood. We toured the CBS studios. My daughter still says that Alex had to tell me to shut up and stop calling out the answers. LOL Truth is I was quiet as a mouse, since they warned us about making noise before the show started. I did speak to Alex...he's my fav. Blessings to you for a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  8. I so admire people that work with rescued animals. There's one lady we know here in town that specializes in miniature Dachshunds if you can imagine. We remain just under flood stage here...storms are ahead they say. A big security breach in our state's healthcare system is the talk of the town now...excitement like that I could do without.

  9. Way cool, Julia. I used to work with a copy editor who was a five-time champ back when they limited the number of times a person could win. It was so exciting.

    Love,
    Janie

  11. My brother and his son can answer every question on Jeopardy. They are rarely stumped. I am lucky if I can get one or two during the whole show, but jump up and down like an idiot if I get the final answer. Hope you found some good buys.
