the others « lurking chihuahua - Several years ago my wife allowed her brother, his kids, and a couple other people to come live with us because they were basically homeless. We tried to help them out but were largely unsuccessful. Some of them left within the first month; Sweetous' brother, the son, and one … Continue reading family matters….

Hopefully the … Continue reading an update….
It's 8:45 pn and I am just now checking the web (at home anyway). Extremely busy day, I finished the spreadsheet I was working on at work, shipped some boxes of old files too. I went walking in the morning before work, a nice long walk at lunch time too. When I got home, Sweetous … Continue reading

..walked in the house today after work and noted that it was very quiet and Sweetous was in the parlour with the doors closed. Dave and his kids were upstairs. So, I asked her if she was hiding, and she told me that she saw some of Davey's school papers and found out that he … Continue reading an update….

..yeaterday, I had my appointment with oral surgery to follow-up on the giant cell granuloma. Doctor said it was gone and completely healed. He said the "puffy" area I felt was sublingual saliva gland which I could feel because I was missing so many teeth. My scans and labs were all normal, so I am … Continue reading Giant cell granulomas and other matters….

.....Tony & Loretta are moving out today. It will be nice being less crowded but I do feel badly that they didn't adjust here better. They are going to Tony's Grandma in Arizona. I wish them well..... Sweetous is cleaning, she has their beds tore apart already, she does not waste any time. So I … Continue reading Move out day….
......Sweetous picked me up after work today and told me that Tony had quit his job at her company. This is so irrational. He quit so that he could go to an interview for another place. The other place is farther away (Tony has no car) likely pays less, and has longr hours. Sweetous told … Continue reading More family drama…..
.....this morning Sweetous, Piglette, and I went to church. David, Davey and Tony also went, Loretta did not go. I was surprised, but pleased to see Tony go.

Sweetous told me that Tony got caught smoking at work yesterday. In a biomedical research facility this is a big NO NO !

Tony was very subdued here at home last night. … Continue reading And now this….
I waited for Loretta to get off work last nite so I could drive her home, she worked several hour longer than planned. It didn't really bother me (as long as it does not become habitual) but Sweetous was not pleased about it. Sweetous does seem to have a "hard on" for Loretta; she told … Continue reading A brief ranting….
Tony & Loretta are getting on Sweetous' nerves. Driving to work today Sweetous was telling me that she is very annoyed at Loretta 'cause she is so unmotivated: so far she seems uninterested in finding work or going to school. Another thing is she waits on Tony like she was his maidservant..... Although Tony has … Continue reading Notes about our extended stay house guests…..
Tony got a job where Sweetous works (a research lab). The pay is pretty good for an entry level no HS diploma job, around $11.00 per hour as I recall. It is also convenient as far as transportation goes. The drawback here is that Tony got bit by a monkey his first week there and … Continue reading It’s been a while since I mentioned anything about our extended family…..
