Several blogs ago I wrote about an officer that was involved in a shooting. I am happy to report that Officer Bell left the hospital yesterday. He has a long recovery ahead of him, but he has a tremendous out pouring of support. He lost a finger, and at this writing, his sight is in question.

Again, I am asking that you remember the men and women of law enforcement who each and every day protect you. We have sports figures that make millions and millions of dollars to play a game. You and I have people that protect us daily, who don't make enough money to pay the bills sometimes.

Glad to see you are on the road to recovery Johnny! Good luck my friend and THANK YOU !!!!



 Linking up today !!

Sometimes waiting and waiting for the "scale" to move - frustration sets in. I have been doing this "journey" my whole life and I still find it hard to look at all the other triumphs in losing weight. Today I am linking up with Katie on the NSV.

I belong to an elite group of people at MY FITNESS PAL. Now all these peeps are on the same page....losing weight, eating good healthy meals, exercising and lending support to fellow members. This is by far the best site I have found. I think I spend more time here than on facebook ! WHAT!! - I know, right??

In getting dressed this week, I have discovered quiet a few pieces of clothing that I can no longer wear. They are just too big and look horrible on me. I make donations often to charity - especially to the charity whose profits go to the local women's shelter. This time, when I discovered I had clothes I no longer could wear, I contacted my group of ladies on MFP and asked if anyone could use them. I had a taker, and I was so excited. I don't personally know this person, but we have been friends and chatting and supporting each other for the last 6-7 months. So I know alot about her, I consider her a friend and I know she can use these clothes in her "stages" of losing weight. Today - I boxed them up and will be putting them in mail to her. A NSV for both of us !!

Tomorrow - I will be back on the scale for the infamous "weigh-in" - I think it is going to be a good week.

Friday night, Wheatie, Bill, Diane and myself hit the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. It was fun. I always like the stock show. I love the animals, I love the shopping, I love the people watching and I love the rodeo. Wheatie and I spend a couple of hours touring the grounds before meeting up with the fams for the RO DAY O.

We started in the exhibit hall, all the "stuff" you can buy or just put on your wishlist.

One of the favorites is Elsie

and her baby boy Beauregard
he is too freaking cute!!

You can't do the Stock Show without looking at all the animals. We got cows, we got horses, we got sheep, we got goats, we got pigs, we got chickens, WE GOT IT ALL! After all - this is COWTOWN.
