In this case, no news drives me nutsy-cuckoo!
Dar came over last night. Why does she always show up when I want to watch Jeopardy?
<I'm such a selfish person!>
She wanted to tell me all about the quarter of a million dollar wedding she went to last week. A Jewish/Islamic wedding. It was interesting. Jewish ceremony. Arab/Islamic reception.
Dar went on to describe the "hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts". The hundreds dollars she spent on her outfit--her Dad wore his tux, her sister-in-law spent hundreds of dollars on her outfit, on and on because with Dar--everything in life is about $$$.
She claims to be a Christian, with Jesus sitting on the chair next to her bed, but...I have never heard of her donating a penny to any worth charity or church.
<There I go again, with un-Christian thoughts.>
So--Rosie O'Donnel's adopted daughter ran off for awhile? I figure she was probably just taking a break from her nutsy-cuckoo mother. Although the girl has emotional and mental issues. So would I, growing up with Rosie!
The friend's son-in-law that I wrote about--the one killed on the expressway, by a woman who made an illegal turn from one of those emergency only u-turn places? His funeral was yesterday. Over a hundred cars in the procession and at least that many bikers and also Navy honor guards. By far the largest funeral our little town of Byron has seen in many years.
He was a very giving young man--always helping others right up to donating his organs. He and his wife organized a yearly Cruising For A Cure, bike ride and used the money raised for a child with cancer, in our community.
Very sad--he had NO broken bones and only a small scrape on his arm from the accident. HOWEVER, he was not wearing his helmet. His head took the full impact when he hit the ground. IF he had been wearing the helmet, he'd be alive and telling his story today.
Another bad thing? Bert was a Michigan State University Spartan, through and through. He died at the University of Michigan hospital. A lot of us have found that ironic. I am going to put a card in my wallet that states: "If I am ever in an accident and air flighted out--take me to East Lansing, NOT Ann Arbor!"
Coming into Byron.
My friend, with her hubs.
There was a man from Ohio, who witnessed the accident, and when the driver of the car took off, at a high rate of speed, he followed her until he could get close enough to see the make, model, color and license plate of the car. The police have arrested her. Only 22 years old!
One of my favorite sayings comes to mind:
Bert should have had his helmet on and the young woman has certainly ruined her destiny.==============================
Felt punk most of the day. I've been closed up in the house for 5 days because of heat and humidity. 75% humidity most of the time. Can't even open the bedroom window at night. Tomorrow promises a cold front and break in the weather. I hope it's here by the time I wake up. Windows and doors will be open to catch the fresh breezes coming in.
