July Monthly News

   Welcome to the July edition of monthly news!

It was a month filled with fun!
We had family parties, which are always a blast.

We saw the Elvis movie... hunka hunka Austin Butler!!!
The movie was epic! I'm not just sayin' that either...
It was a great look at his life, but from a different point of view. I highly recommend it to you all!

RIP to the wonderful actress that played Big Mama Thorton, Shonka Dukerah. πŸ˜“

We also celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary.
We've been together almost 22 years though.
We went to The Keg. (Shocker!)
We also went for a drive and ended up in Toronto.
It was a beautiful day spent together.

Got my #17th tattoo, which was an add-on to an existing tattoo. 
I already had The Brat on my wrist. I have been one for 46 years after all.
My favorite song by The Ramones, is Beat On The Brat.
I got the chorus for the song tattooed above the words so now I actually have beats on the brat. (Baddabomp.)
She also touched up my Movember moustache on my finger. (Painful but worth it.) Even though the bloody ink hates my finger and I need a third touch up. FML.

We also had a family BBQ.
They really are the best! Most of my siblings, our kids, and even their kids attend and we have fun, eat good food and share great times.

Missing is my sister Penny, (Cheri's twin) and my sister Donna. 
My other two siblings are deceased. (GBNF πŸ’™)

Had my niece, Manda's birthday at a pool hall. Haven't played pool in years but it was a blast. I won a game a lost one. I also drank waaaaay too much. πŸ˜‚

Then two days later we celebrated our great-nephew's first birthday.
Baby J is the sweetest little boy on the planet, but he wasn't too happy with the singing of birthday songs or all of the people crowding him. It was Mickey and Minnie mouse themed so pardon the ears....
Three generations pictured here.

It was a great first party with lots of family and friends!

Had my 4th COVID shot.
Am I crazy or safe, that remains to be seen. I do like that I've had COVID and not been hospitalized though, so there's that!
With so many points of view, who am I to think I know better than Science. If they say take the shot, I'll keep taking the shot. 
I prefer my chances this way.....

So again it looks like I read nothing, but I had two review books to read that do not tour the blog until August. It did take me too much time to plod through one book in particular. I had too much fun in between reading and it was a slow book, so it was hard to pick up when fun was to be had. I'm sure you all can relate.

I also have a giveaway posted for the little ones in your life.
Head here to enter the Bubble Guppies Fin-Tastic Fairytales DVD giveaway.
US and Canada only. Sorry INTL peeps!
Good luck!

July really is the busiest and most eventful month for me, what about you?

The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
