She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death.
Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out Earl's old Army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart since it was so badly broken in the first place.
Not wanting to miss the vital organ and become a vegetable and burden to someone, she called her doctor to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be.
"On a woman," the doctor said, "your heart would be just below your left breast."
Later that night, Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.

Each month, a bottle of coloured ink spreads across a sheet of paper embossed with numbers, colouring them in as it goes.
What's better on a swelteringly hot day than warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies? With this recipe you can bake a batch of cookies on your dashboard in just three hours.

WHAT'S ON ROGER'S CAMERA PHONE? (AKA: Some photos that may or may not actually be in focus, we'll see.)
A couple of older pictures, that's what!
First up, we have Katie and Maggie riding Spacely Sprockets at Six Flags Great America. That's them in the front row. Maggie is on the left, and Katie on the right.
Not to be outdone, here is Jessie and Danny riding the same ride, same seats, moments later.
Here's one from last night, our friends treated us to a Chicago Fire soccer game. Here is Sparky their mascot. I would have had some "action" shots from the game, but they didn't turn out so well. Go figure. Here Sparky is getting two sections of the stadium to "battle it out" for being the loudest. We totally kicked butt! ***
Be fit for more than the thing you are now doing. Let everyone know that you have a reserve in yourself; that you have more power than you are now using. If you are not too large for the place you occupy, you are too small for it. ~ James Garfield (20th President of the United States)
JOKE FOR YOUR WEEK:
70-year-old George went for his annual physical. He told the doctor that he felt fine, but often had to go to the bathroom during the night. Then he said, "But you know Doc, I'm blessed. God knows my eyesight is going, so he puts on the light when I pee, and turns it off when I'm done!"
A little later in the day, Dr. Smith called George's wife and said, "Your husband's test results were fine, but he said something strange that has been bugging me. He claims that God turns the light on and off for him when uses the bathroom at night."
Thelma exclaimed, "That old fool! He's been peeing in the refrigerator again!"
Enjoy your weekend!

This morning, hundreds of Amazon Kindle owners awoke to discover that books by a certain famous author had mysteriously disappeared from their e-book readers. These were books that they had bought and paid for—thought they owned.
But no, apparently the publisher changed its mind about offering an electronic edition, and apparently Amazon, whose business lives and dies by publisher happiness, caved. It electronically deleted all books by this author from people's Kindles and credited their accounts for the price.
Sure Amazon gave the money back and all, but like the story mentions later, this is akin to Bares and Noble sneaking into your house at night, and replacing your book purchase from your nightstand and leaving a refund check.
Not lost is the irony of the titles taken back, George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm.
So maybe I don't want one now. I definitely have something else to chew on, especially when it comes to the purchase of this gadget. Sure it will save some space, but it just became a little more intrusive if you ask me.

Next up Sensational - I didn't do an all caps for that one, because, well, it's SENSATIONAL. Did you see that? I bet you scrolled down and saw that first, didn't you. all-caps does that to you. So what will be sensational about these Sunday posts. Meriam-Webster says this:
Pronunciation: \-shnəl, -shə-nəl\
1 : of or relating to sensation or the senses
3 : exceedingly or unexpectedly excellent or great
Maggie's going to be an architect. She can build our dream house for us. 4S, 4 sure!
It's not Abbey Road, but Andy, Marissa, Kevin and Benjy are trying to recreate it at Wrigley... okay, not really, but hey, watching a game at Wrigley qualifies as a 4S!
Have a great Sunday!
