In the news today:

  1. Today marks the 50th anniversary of The Flintstones, it premiered on Sept. 30, 1960 at 8:30 in the evening. Obviously (really, truly) I am not old enough to have watched it when it premiered, but it is a favorite of mine and (I am sure) the first cartoon I ever watched. If I was older, the internet was older, and I’d had a blog way back then, Nannygoat’s SSIN (super secret internet name) would have been Pebbles. I called her that as baby/toddler. We always did her hair in the famous Pebbles ponytail sticking up from the top of her head. I can’t believe it has been 50 years.
  2. MacDougal’s bank was robbed today. I was working in our other office for the first time today and had just arrived there (one block from his bank). I got an ‘inspired’ thought and texted him to see if we could meet for lunch. He answered back with “We’ve just been robbed.” Those words struck like a cold knife in my mother heart despite his answer to my OMG, are you okay??!!?? question that he was fine, just a little shaken. I immediately (without telling him) went over there to check on him and hug him decided to go buy my lunch at the store his branch is in. He couldn’t talk much and I don’t have many details, but I am requesting a transfer on his behalf to a bank with bullet proof glass and security guards immediately.
  3. RAIN! THUNDER! LIGHTENING! All day today. Bizarre, considering I was dying of heat stroke 3 days ago and it never rains in southern california. I love it thought it was awesome.
  4. Great Gram had another fall. Apparently it was on Monday, but we weren’t told until today. Not as bad this time, just a few stitches on her forehead and a fracture in her arm (compared to a few months ago & the compound ankle fracture).
  5. 000000000000000000000
  6. Chloe kitty is putting on so much weight that now when she walks on my keyboard while I am typing she puts in her own number and apparently she wants you to know something about an “o”.
  7. y
  8. And a “y”
  9. And now my bottom and top menu bars are missing and I don’t know how to get them back. Darn cat.
  10. I am saddened by the loss of Tony Curtis. Such a handsome bloke and I grew up on his movies. If I judge my age by how old the famous people who have passed away lately are I might think I was old.
  11. Tomorrow is Friday. Yabba Dabba Do!

  1. I am so glad no one (especially your son) was hurt during the robbery. That had to be sooo scary! (as someone who was almost robbed at the ATM last week, I know fear!)

    The Flintstones was the only thing ever on tv (pre cable days) when Noodle was still getting up in the night for a bottle. Don’t think I’ve seen it since.

    So glad MacD is ok, hopefully the other teller won’t loose his job.

    We will pray for great – you know how much I love me a gramma :).

    Chloe is adorable!

  4. wow that is too much going on! glad your kid is okay, and hope Great Gram heals up and is feeling good soon.
