Some Good News and Some Bad News

I'm ba-ack! Thank you all for your prayers concerning our trip. And you were right - God did surprise us. Even before I saw any of your comments, I knew that we were covered in prayer. We arrived Saturday morning to find out that we were all invited to a birthday celebration for my aunt and my granddaddy that evening. We got to visit with my grandparents, my aunt and uncle, my cousin and his wife and kids while enjoying a seafood buffet at a restaurant on the banks of the White River in Des Arc, Arkansas. It was good to catch up with them. My aunt reads my blog, y'all!

My dad and brother-in-law stayed home to watch the Razorbacks lose to USC. We got back in time for the 4th quarter, so we all gathered in the living room to watch. I'm not a big football fan, but I gotta root for the home team. How 'bout them Hogs?

Sunday we went to the Little Rock Zoo for a behind-the-scenes tour with a keeper of the large animals. The kids got to feed and pet the giraffes, rhinos, and elephants. I can't wait to get the pictures developed.

All in all, it was an enjoyable trip, and much less painful than I expected. That's the good news.

The bad news is this message I received from blogger beta when trying to post a comment on my blogger friend's blog:
"Unfortunately, you cannot post a comment on a non-beta blog or claim a mobile blog using your Google Account. These features are coming soon." Bummer beta.

Hope your holiday is grand!

You're home. Good. I like you better home. :-)

It sounds like you enjoyed the trip and I know you didn't think you would. I envy you spending this holiday on the banks of anything. Any banks at all would be might welcome right about now.

I've decided I'm just not going to switch to beta until all the betabugs are worked out. I've heard lots of people saying they can't post comments on regular old blogger accounts now.

What a mess. You'd think they'd have all these things worked out before they put it out there as their wonderful new improved version, wouldn't you?

Anyway, I'm glad you're home.

Okay, ignore my comment on your other post, I'm a complete doofus. SO, anyway... glad your trip was better than expected.

About your comment situation, you can leave a comment as other though right? As long as your friend allows it anyway.

Glad the bad news was blog related and not kid related! And I'm SO glad you had a wonderful weekend!

Mommy Dearest said...

Woo pig suey! Welcome home! I have had problems over the weekend posting to beta accounts, although I haven't had trouble with yours.

Tammy said...

testing...testing...trying to reply again...guess it's part of the beta glitches! OK...let's see if this works...

Tammy said...

YAY! It worked! I haven't been able to reply to you for days!

Anyway, I wanted to say that I am so glad things went so well this last weekend! You were in my prayers! :)

Paulette said...

Hey Friend, I am so glad you are home safe and sound. I prayed for you while you were away.
I am glad you had some Joy while away.
I will continue to pray for you.
Have a great rest of the week.

I saw the option to go to beta blogger, but I tend to wait a bit and let them figure out the bugs of whatever is new. Glad your trip went better than expected.

Pamela said...

Pity about Beta, there are so many people like you in the same position...hope someone lights a fire under the guy that is in charge ob Beta comments! LOL
