    No....I don't think that Green will ever replace a real pet like your Jessie or Charlie! Green is more of a distraction during short breaks from work or waiting for something...doctors appointment, grocery line, anything!! :)

    Much healthier than smoking! I always want to smoke when things went too slow for me! :p Please, if you ever come across a virtual boyfriend, let me know!:D Just think we could program what they would talk to us about! No arguments, no silence, all kinds of good stuff could go on there. Thanks, ski, you've made a very difficult day turn into a quite interesting concept! I truly appreciate your support as well!:) Keep on the look out! :D Diane.

    My children and their friends in my backyard, preparing for the ice bucket challenge for one of the friends.

    Johanna, that's brilliant! Great enthusiasm! I cab hear my cat, Pookie purring like a motorboat, my dog,Charlie snoring, uhoh,
    Gord just woke up, and turned his light on! He's ALWAYS cranky when he wakes up. YAY!!! He turned his light off again! He probably heard Pookie! My favorite cat, is under the bed right now, she's scratching the crap out of the bottom of my mattress. Wow, Charlie is growling a low growl, now low woofs, he heard something in the chicken yard! He's a great dog for keeping the chickens safe!:) Have you heard any screams out back yet? Johanna?:eek:

    It was loud when they poured the cold water over him, but he didn't really scream. The young man that had accepted the challenge underestimated the cold water and the amount of ice cubes. :cool:
    But I can hear him laughing and talking again. :)

    It is so wonderful what that baseball player did for this disease! ALS or more commonly called "Lou Gerick's "(sp?) disease, he was an amazing man as well! There was a movie made about him, Gary Cooper played the lead. I don't remember what it's called , it's old and in black & white!
    Oh, brother, now the rooster's crowing because Gord opened the front door for Charlie to go chase what ever he was growling at! Everyone's awake now! Gracie is clawing the carpet!:p She likes her sleep!:D
    Oh, I just wanted to say, Martha Stewart took the challenge, no water, just ice cubes, she didn't even get her hair wet!:oops:

    Just a bit, it would have been way worse with water in the bucket.

    Will they post it on YouTube? I HOPE SO! It is such a boon to this cause! It started in April I think and last year they had something like 3,300 $ and THIS April they had over $3 mil! I love that!

    No, you'd need the page of the one who accepted the challenge.

    Judith loaded it to her phone. I can send an email with the video to you, if you want to see it. You'll hear a little bit of our dialect there.

    I LOVED THAT !!! The dialect, the way they tricked him by switching buckets! The laughter and his whoa's as he is running around shaking it off! :D It was wonderful! I'm still smiling! Everytime I feel sad I will watch it and crack up all over again!
    The rooster is STILL crowing! My neighbor is having panic attacks from the rooster. But I raised him from a baby, I can't give him away! I LOVE my neighbor, we are very close friends, what would you do? o_O She's a teacher, has a young son, I am torn by her agony. She has been gone basically all summer! It's probably the rooster she's escaping!
    One day I will take a video of him and you will hear how loud he is! I wake up before him, but I'm the only one!:)

    The ticking of the clock in my kitchen. The windows are closed, so there's nothing else I can hear at the moment.

    Music, people talking and laughing.

    There's a wedding taking place today, the bride is living in my street. The bridesgroom has arrived with the musicians and his guests, and while all are waiting for the bride to get ready so that they can walk to our church (more than 1 km away, that will be quite a walk), the musicians are playing polkas, and guests (and bystanders) are standing on the sidewalk, talking.

    The muffled sound of traffic passing by in front of my house and the keyboard clicks as I type this post on my iPad.
