I's been a while, yet again, since I posted...That sounds like I am totally convinced someone reads my drivel, which I am NOT!.Dennis and I have been a bit busy with our "elders". For those who don't know, they are Den's Uncle Jr. and Aunt Jeanette, ages 91 and 99 (her 100th birthday is Sept. 6th). Uncle Jr. (his real name is Clarence) fell and ended up in the ER for 6 staples in his head..and then he ended back at the hospital 4 days later with back pain. They have no children, and Dennis and Uncle Jr. have always been close, so we are surrogate children. Friday, he is being admitted to a re-hab facility for a 30 day stint to see if they can get him back up to snuff.

Lately, I feel like the movie The Exorsist, with my head spinning...We had a recent weekend with the Wolff Cubs and 2 of their little friends.  Our youngest daughter, Chris, and her hubby, John , along with  their friends, the Vargos..., along with our son, Kelly and his wife, Cindy, all went into Chicago to see a U-2 concert..and an overnight in the city...  Taylor helped me babysit 4 kids...ages 8, 2 6 year olds, and a 4 year old...overnight...Thanks, Tay, and thank you Jesus...I might have landed in the looney bin without your help! Never fear, peeps, I will  post photos of that mini Cave-A-Palooza next...(if that doesn't deter you, nothing will!)

I am still feeling somewhat "out of sorts", and will be undergoing a bone density scan in August..not sure why..My bone density stinks, and I know that. This says nothing about my troublesome friend, my parathyroid. I am getting tired of all these tests...Why the Heck did I have that surgery in the first place??? Actually, my daughter, Terrie, has just had a nuclear parathyroid scan and a thyroid scan for the same thing that plagues me...As she says, "Thanks , Mom"...yep, this stuff IS hereditary.

 We did have a very lovely event on Father's Day.  We attended the wedding of our great nephew and his bride at Starved Rock State Park . The wedding was outdoors and very simple, yet beautiful..I am going to post some pictures I took..
This is Jeremy and Tori Eisenberg. Jeremy is a Sandwich Police Officer and Tori is a Police dispatcher and firefighter. Their dog was the ring bearer and carried their rings up to the "alter"...The pictures of them with a "rope" on their joined hands is a Celtic wedding tradition of "tying the knot"...Her father married them..really touching.

 It was a very non-traditional wedding outdoors.. and me, being VERY non-traditonal, loved it!!..Terrie and her three kids went with us..Tim couldn't make it because he is now working nights since he was promoted to Sergeant..
Speaking of the Heiser they all are!! Left to right, Peyton (turning 15 tomorrow), Campbell, age 11, (check the dimples on this future "chick magnet"..) and Taylor, age 16 going on 30. Actually all our grandkids and step grands are really great kids..Of course they have their moments (my sis and brother and I NEVER fought..tehee), but if someone ever said a bad word about any of the others, they would open up a can of whoop ass kick butt to defend their sibling...
As you can see, they actually DO love each least SOMETIMES!!!!!
