Guess Its Been Awhle huh?

Sunday last, I waggled myself an invite to dinner up at Pete & Judi's. I say I waggled the invite in that I called to check in and see how things were going, and during the course of the chit chat alluded to how I was doing nothing, and everything was pretty much same-o, same-o, and of course Judi being the big hearted soul she is suggested , if I were of a mind to, that I should come over for dinner, which I of course accepted. I of course was aware that "The Joyce" was in town visiting, and accepting the dinner invite allowed me the pleasure of visiting and saying howdy.
Dinner was More than adequate, and I put a small dent in my Nephew's beer supply, he still is able to act normal and smiles----the full impact of his daughter Alexi's wedding in July has yet to sink in.
After arriving and the first wave of up dating chit-chat, Pete and Judi took us over to their neighbors, who are naturalists, and big on animal rescue-----their forte is Raccoons, at the time of our visit they were housing no less than 40 odd of the little buggers, nursing them back to health and ultimately to be released back into the wilds. Ken has gone to much expense and labor and has built a small zoo like complex to house them, and he and his wife keep the place immaculate. His wife had previously worked at one of the large groceries, and now she visits them a couple days a week and they give here all the produce that can no longer be sold, but that is still good, and the little raccoons are fed quite well, melons, banana's, grapes, celery, hot dogs, and I sort of envied them as we watched them eating. I didn,t have my camera with me, but perhaps Judi can supply some pics of the raccoon house in the future.
Prior to making my exit for home later, I invited Joyce , Pete and Judi to dinner Wednesday night, at the local Indian Casino, Pachanga-----which should prove to be a fun evening. I am looking forward to it.
Next Saturday, Oct. 3rd, is Pete and Judi's engagement party for their Daughter Alexi and her husband to be Phil----a small intimate gathering of around 80 people. THAT should prove to be entertaining.
Guess that's all I have to blog on for now----"The Joyce", kinda lectured me how selfish I have been by not blogging so guess I will have to endeavor to amend my ways and input with more frequency.
