I got some more beef sticks today. They are very yummy. Then I got a cantaloupe for 75 cents. I havent cut it yet. Maybe tomorrow for lunch. I also got some gnome Halloween decorations. They are meant for outside use but at the same time would only last one season there. So I am thinking I will find places for them inside. It was fun watching those sell. One woman was mad that they sold them by the piece. She only wanted to pay 25 cents each. But a guy bid 50 and took all of the styrofoam pumpkins that were included in the choice. He also took the 3 gnomes that had the stakes taped to them. I took 7 of the gnomes and then pulled my stakes off the back of his I told him I got them and he laughed. If she had asked him she could have got enough stakes for any she wanted also. But she was mad about not getting her way When we got home we ordered for dinner. We could see a storm coming as we left to pick it up. We picked up a few things at the Family Dollar and then picked up our food. Made it home right before the rain got here. It stopped in time for me to take the memory cards back to the cameras. I also walked out and visited with George a little bit. He was feeling rotten in the cooler air. I spot bathed Duke doberman after dinner. Its a new shampoo to help his itchy skin. So I only did a small spot this time to make sure he wont have a bad reaction to the shampoo. So far everything is good. Sunday I will give him a full bath in it. Tomorrow is the livestock auction. Maybe I will get some cute piggies or goats. Then after I get home I hope to pick some of the green beans. But that will depend on if we get more rain or not. Hope you had fun today too.

We picked up two watermelons from a truck parked beside the road yesterday for $5 each, which is a good deal right now, for my area. I cut one when I woke up this evening. It's delicious! Why do some people have to be weird like that? Why can't they play nice with the other kids? So, George was being nice to you for a change? I spent most of my day sitting in a waiting room while Pretty talked with her doctor and had more tests run... We got home around 3:30 pm and I slept until 8 pm tonight. I'm still tired.

@wolfgirl569 Usually, watermelons in the grocery store are $3 now but Walmart raised their price to $7 and then dropped the price again to $5. I bet they weren't selling any at $7. Yeah, but I just find them annoying so ignore them. I hope you have a good night.

You and the guy got all the gnomes, she had to buy instead of getting mad, you cannot always wim. I am sure that George was happy to see you, he loves some nose rubs. I hope that the sampoo is going to help the poor Duke. May be a thunderstorm is approaching here.

Do you have lots of green beans to pick up? Are they all for you or for selling?

Some people get really upset if they don't get their way.

I really enjoyed my Friday by working on sharing good news stories here, doing surveys and writing a journal on Deviantart.
