How Many Dead People Found in YOUR House?

When I heard my husband leave the house early yesterday morning - after a brief phone conversation and without his two hour coffee-newspaper-cereal routine - I knew something wasn't right.

I texted him later, "Is everything okay?"

This was his reply...

A picture of a body in the workout room/lounge area of one of his apartment complexes.

That's it. A picture.

I immediately flashed back to 2001, when a body was found in the garage of the house we were building in Hermosa Beach, California.

Police seek help in case of body found in garage - Police were seeking help from the public in the case of Anthony Reyes, whose body was found the day after Christmas in the garage of a home under construction in Hermosa Beach. The body of Reyes, 37, of the Rosemead area, was found by workers at 11:20 a.m. on the day after Christmas, wrapped in a blanket inside the garage of a 30th Place duplex that was being remodeled. Reyes died of multiple blows to the head and neck, an autopsy concluded. Investigators believe the man was killed elsewhere and his body dumped in the garage.
Yeah, really.

And just so you know, the police don't clean up the blood for you. My brother was blessed with that duty.

Okay, so I'm thinking, Not again.

And then...Well at least I don't see any blood we'll have to clean up.

Or vomit.

Turns out the guy was just a passed out drunk.

Lynne's Lowdown

Remember I told you KC would be in Bark Magazine?

Here 'tis:

She's in the bottom middle

Larry says she should have been on the cover.

Hey, I got a free one year subscription. Don't laugh.

My friend Donna has an animal nursery in her backyard at the moment. You know how much I love animals. And baby animals...uh! I can't resist!

In these pictures her miniature horse baby, Java Joe, is 9 days old. JJ's mom's name is Latte.

Donna and Java Joe.
Isn't he tiny? Not much bigger than her dog Divot, who's next to him.

Java Joe romping with the dogs

He was running and showing off for us. We were cracking up because he was so wobbly. Here he is running after his mom

Another (regular size horse) baby

Brand new parakeet baby (not so cute)

Older parakeet baby

She's got so much going on there, I don't know how she does it. But I was in heaven! I told her I want to live on a farm but I want somebody else to take care of the animals.


Also last week we took Eric and three of his friends to Lake of the Ozarks. Some girl friends also were there, and they went on the boat with us.

That'll probably be it this summer as far as vacations go. Eric and I will be going to Kansas City for a basketball tournament in July, but other than that we're going to staycation.

Some good news on the basketball front - The varsity coach called Eric into his office after the shooting clinic last night. He said he was impressed with his play and invited him to the varsity camp at Southeast Missouri State University next weekend. Yay.
