Good morning everyone, cold and rain again today. I don't mind the cold but with the rain, too, it is damp and that I cannot tolerate good. Today we will have no hot water, repairing the hot water tank. The witch bought a cheap unknown brand and it has been nothing but trouble. On top of no hot water they fire department will be here soon to check the alarms. That is loud  but at least this time they let us know it is being done.

HAL  tried that link, put my phone number in and it said message sent with a code, phone never rang and does not have a message thing on it.

LARRY  I have not been in a store for more than 2 years now and I would love to browse in the market and BJ's (like Costco) just to see if there was something new. I know I cannot do it, every time I have an appointment I am worn out for a couple of days, Thanksgiving it took almost a week before I recuperated. Christmas at my son's will be tiring, too. I think I mentioned before every day something else is wrong on this machine. One day Skype worked and the next it wouldn't.

JENNY  I know how it feels to have family in a fire area. My daughter and family had to evacuate their home in San Diego years ago but luckily the hew freeway there were putting in a couple miles up their road stopped the fire from going the rest of the way. Prayers for your son.   

JANE  only way I can play disks is on my computer. That is one thing that still works right.

Good Morning Everyone, from
the much cooler and over cast rocky coast of Maine...

Yesterday I had breakfast with Kelly and Kirk..

That is me in the middle  (as if you couldn't have guessed it!) 
:coolsmiley:

I  will be going into the hospital in the middle of June
for a colonoscopy !   :crazy2:   
They will take me in the day before for
the dreaded "prep"  ....  (Yikes)...   

Because I am on coumadin and have afib they want to keep
and eye on me,  as a low vision person who fell and broke
arm a few months ago...   I personally am very pleased
that they are bringing me in early...   Phew....

Hal, congratulations on being able to get a license to drive.
I wish that I could also,  but that is out of the question for me
and my poor vision in one eye.    :tickedoff:

I sound like I am complaining,  but only a little!
I mean who likes  having colonoscopies ?   
:uglystupid2:

I wish everyone a nice week. 
Sandy

 I had a link here for Lake Michigan but when I clicked on it, I didn't get what I intended, so I deleted it.  Sorry about that and if I can get the right link, I'll put it here.   

The link above is for Lake Michigan over the last couple of days.  It shows the lake at various places, not only Grand Haven (link below).  It has been very windy and is to continue until this evening.  Amy mentioned how windy it is in her location, which isn't too far from where I live and from Lake Michigan (not next door, however).

I e-mailed a great-nephew to see how far he is from the CA fires and he said they were not near them.  He just moved and lives north of LA.

Jenny, I have been watching some of the special programs on PBS myself, although most of them I've seen in previous years.  Fund raising time!

Maybe I'll get my SS notice in the mail today.  I'm expecting a $1 increase from what everyone has been saying.  As Jenny said, at least it didn't go down.

Hi Everyone. Our day starts with an overcast sky and our high today is suppose to be 62. The only thing on the calendar for today is our Wednesday night dinner at Church and then Scott and Jennifer will be coming out.  We should get to speak to our great grandchildren this evening.

Yesterday turned out to be a very busy and stressful day.  The morning was busy paying bills, calling a couple of places about the billings and doing other office work.  At 12:50 I left to go for the second day visit to the eye doctor only to find I-20 traffic basically at a standstill and then moving a couple of car lengths and stopping again.  I got very stressed as knew I was going to be late for my appointment.  I called and told them and they said they allow a 15 to 30 minute leeway.  The Georgia Department of Transportation is installing some new signage on the Interstate and they had taken the traffic down to one lane from a four lane road.  This caused the big backup as the cars had to merge to get by the blocked area.  My eye appointment went very well and was told the eye is doing great.  The vision has cleared a lot this morning and hopefully will continue to clear in the next few days.  As I came back from the eye doctors office I stopped and Costco and returned the Chromebook.  I then found a relatively inexpensive HP laptop.  It doesn't have the greatest display but it will work very nicely for what I use it for.  I spend a couple of hours getting it basically set up with only a few more things to do on it. 

Shirley, thanks for the info on the heart procedure for valve replacement.  It would be great if they can avoid exploratory caths and save those for stent placement. 

Jenny, no wonder you are on pins and needles with Mark's golf course and home in jeopardy.  Those fires are terrible.  I hadn't heard about the Instant Pot before it was mentioned here a few months ago.  However, Pat told me she has had her eye on it for sometime.  Her next project it to make some strawberry jam in it using honey.   

June, sorry to read that you are restricted to your apartment.  I sure hope today has found you feeling better. 

Joy, those thin  mint cookies sound like something I would really enjoy.  When I was at Costco yesterday I had to stay away from the table where they have the Peppermint/chocolate candy displayed.  It is so good that I probably will get a package of it closer to Christmas.

Hal, Pat hasn't gotten her SS statement of her increase although I know what it is as calculated it.  I also have not gotten a statement of the changes in my retirement from the Federal Government but again know what it will be.  I am just glad there is some increase.  Our minister told us in the Wisdom group that for us to have police protection during the Sunday services  for a year would cost the Church $10,000.  It is against the law here for anyone else to carry a gun into the Church unless they are registered with the Church and I think he said the police department.  They would have to wear some identifying pin or something else so the police responding to a shooter wouldn't come in and shoot the Church member.  Our Administrative Counsel is trying to decide what to do. 

Gloria, it sounds like the witch has struck again with the cold water.  I bet you would find many things new is BJ's.  We had one of that chain over near the area where we used to live but never went into it.  Do you ever use an electric cart to get around in a store?

Sandy, that is a nice picture you posted.  I did guess that it was you in the middle.  :) I know the colonoscopy is something we all dread but it is vitally important.  The last one I had wasn't bad at all.  Glad you will be in the hospital so they can keep an eye on you.   

Lloyd, I hope your headache is better today and that you can stay in where it is warm. 

Amy, I have a small pill that I have to cut in half.  I got a pill splitter that will handle quite a few pills, depending on size, to cut them at once.  I got the idea from Joan as she mentioned having one several years ago.   

Jane, nice of your daughters to give you an early Christmas present so you can enjoy your Christmas CDs.

Jenny:  I am thinking about Mark and wife today - may they and their neighborhood be safe.  It seems so late in the year to be dealing with fires.

Sandy:  good for you for getting the colonoscopy.  Best wishes!

We are scheduled to fly home for Christmas (first time flying for the holiday) and it is turning to be more difficult than driving 1,000 miles.  We were concerned about snow on the freeway.  Well, we can only take one little carry-on and I am not going to pay for a suitcase because I think we can do this.  Oh, how flying has change.  We cannot select our own seat - everything will  work out - I just am concerned about Don.  Changing planes in SLC Salt Lake City and weather can be a factor there as well as a pretty bumpy landing (never forgotten landing)

I had You Tube on the t.v. last night and watched all the Christmas programs - the Celtic Women, and the Italian men.  Just the most beautiful music - then, I went to bed at 2:30 AM and got up at 7.  It is OK if I keep on moving.  Worth every minute of lost sleep.

Jenny girl, thank you for you wishes. My blood was drawn today, and my nurse was in to check my vitals, she said as soon as they get the results of the throat culture, I will be released from "Jail". They are super cautious here, too many old people to risk germs floating around. I really do not feel all that perky anyway, so it is just as well. I wish I had a dime for overtime I have sneezed this week, I'd throw a HUGE Bash. Which City is Mark and wife located out here ? I pray God will keep them in His care, and I do feel very confident that they will be fine. We too love your loved ones.

Nurse just came in with my second dose of cough syrup. Had the first two pills of azithromyzin…more to come. Meds make me feel like going to bed. So I will do so. Keep well my dear friends, and I aim to get there too.God is with us..our Healer.

Good evening everyone. well I have put in a hard day in the shop. well morning will tell the story but I think I have got both rear tractor tires fixed finely. so I am seining off for today after I post the recipe for these small 1/2 pies.

I buy the large can of biscuits.  I role them out to about 1/8 " thick. then I take a can of Cherie pie filling and spoon it out to one side of the middle then fold it over making a 1/2 pie.( do not put too much in ) or you wont be able to seal the edges. then I put cooking oil an a big skillet. Nancy set the temp for me to what you use to cook donuts. Finger licking Good.

LLOYD, I had a lady check out yesterday and she had a nice little pile of goodies at the end of her order.  She looked at me and said, "For my sweet tooth!"  I told her I have a friend (YOU) who says he doesn't have a sweet tooth.  He has sweet TEETH.  She said she guesses she does too.
I was really tired when I got home today and I didn't do the short shopping trip that I had planned for this afternoon.  I was afraid I run into darkness on the way home and there's a lot of construction on that road right now.  With the Christmas traffic and the congestion, I didn't want to run the risk of getting caught in that.  I'm finding lately there are more times when I'd rather not drive.  So I don't.

I STILL HAVE A COUPLE THINGS TO FINISH BEFORE i CAN QUIT FOR THE EVENING SO i BETTER GET BACK TO WORK.  Darn I didn't mean for that to be in caps but my typing is so bad these days that I'm not going to do it over.  I wish you God's love and care this night.

Good evening, EVERYFRIEND!

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for Mark and Megan.  Their area is and will continue to be in a evacuation condition.  The winds had calmed down some over the day but now have increased with vengeance.  Mark’s home is in Sunland, Shadow Hills Community, so he is in the Creek Fire /Sylmar Area.  His work, Angeles National Golf Course continues to be closed to all road traffic.  He heard the fire went right up to the landscaping around the club house but no one knows for positive if there is any severe damage to the building itself.  They know there is damage to the course in several areas and now the fire is raging on the hillside once again right there.  The way the winds are swirling around anything can happen.  Prayers for all of the firefighters/police and families that are effected by this.  It is so sad to see all the home totally destroyed.

Mark has been cutting tree limbs that are near power lines to help to keep the: from going down.  Also cutting palm fronds that he could get to.  He sprays his roof with water regularly as the sparks are flying around like crazy and are what can and will start another fire. 

JUNE, I do hope your test prove to show you do not have strep and therefore can return to “freedom” very soon!  Feel much better sweet lady. 

It has been darn cold here today.....just a biting cold!  I had a appointment to do something that I have never ever done before......I had a acupuncture treatment for pain and a massage.  I bought it on Groupon for a very reasonable price, and every since then I have been dreading to go.  It was about to expire so I bit the bullet and went.  It was all OK....not nearly as scary as I expected.....mind you the masseuse was blind, seriously....so that helped!!!  Hahahha. 

Good for you, SANDY, getting the colonoscopy scheduled.  Happy to read that you will go in for the prep time so they can keep an eye on you.  Best of luck. 

CAROL, I am happy to read that you are flying home for Christmas....but it seems you are facing some challenges. We always try to get direct flights, but sometimes that is not possible. 

LARRY, that is shocking to read how expensive it is to have police protection at your church.  I wonder if it would be possible to have a policeman that is a parishioner to volunteer their time?  I will be anxious to continue to hear what all Pat is making in the Instant Pot.  I hope you do get to speak to your great grands again tonight.

JANE, I hope you can be done very soon so you can take it easy for the rest of the night! 

Have a good rest of your evening.....

Jenny

Lloyd, fried pies, love them and have eat them all my life.  My Moher used to make them regularly and wife did when we had kids at home.  I now stop at the day old bakery store down the street and pick up some of the apple and cherry, they are about half price and no difference in taste.

Jenny, happy to hear your son's house is still okay.  And the way the golf course if maintained, regular watering and cutting short must have a lot to do with minimum damage.

JaneS, smart lady.  traffic from now until after first of year will be a mess.  And around here with the rain has made our street into skating ranks, roads are so slick from the accumulation of dirt from no rain for so long.

June Hope you get back on your feet soon, my doctor called me again today and wanted me to cut down on the potassium supplement he prescribed and also wanted me to come in early for my next appointment and have blood work done before i see him.  Wonder what he has up his sleeve. Just take care of yourself and get well.

I am off to bed, c u tomorrow God willing,
Night, God Bless and Sweet Dreams

Good morning everyone..

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas..woke to 1/2 inch of snow on the ground. Can really do without that today but better than 12 inches of snow. We are off to the city today, then Dr's office, he has the report to the last test hubby had. We weren't to hear about that till the appointment on the 18th so this one has me worried.Not saying too much as hubby has enough on his plate to deal with.

Larry, the pill that is reduced is a capsule so that is changed down. We do have a pill cutter ,I just finished using it to cut the dogs pills in half.

Sandy, good to hear you will be admitted ahead of time,prep work is worse that the procedure. Loved seeing you ,Kelly and Kirk.

I had better scoot and get ready.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning Everyfriend!  I think I have a ride to the stores I need to go to. My much younger neighbor mentioned that she has to go down that way and I said that if she lets me tag along, I'll take her to lunch.  She said I don't need to take her to lunch and I'm welcome to come along.  We WILL have lunch!

I'm waiting for the "boinger" for the dogs pills and then breakfast.  Then I'll get dressed and ready for whenever Cheri calls.  She has another errand to do first and then we'll be off to the "Strip".

I hope all are safe from the fires, on the the road to recovery or staying well.  God be with you this day and always.

Hi Everyone.  It is a rainy morning here and will continue with rain throughout the day and evening.  It is welcome.  We will be staying in the 40's all day.  I plan on going to coffee, after picking up my friend, and then after bringing him home will go back to the Church for our Thursday Wisdom group with the Pastor. 

We enjoyed a nice dinner last night at Church and then at 7 am we got to talk with our 4 great grandchildren.  This included talking with the little 6 year old who we have never seen, except in pictures, and had never heard speak before.  Last week he was too shy to talk but this week joined right in.   Yesterday while at Walmart to pick up prescriptions for Pat I bought a pair of reading glasses.  I am only going to need them for close reading. Today my left eye is seeing almost as well as the right one.

Carol, the Weather Channel put out a notification last evening that the Santa Ana winds were going to be the strongest last night that they have ever been in recorded history.  I do hope they were wrong as those fires are so devastating.  Wow, you did stay up late.  You and my wife would make a good team although I think she is often asleep in her easy chair after I go to bed and then wakes up and comes to bed late. 

June, aren't you glad your folks are super cautious as it protects you from other as well.  Hope you are feeling better today. 

Lloyd, hope you find the tractor tires fully inflated this morning.  I know that is a big job.  What brand of tractor do you have and were these the big back tires?

Jane, I will have remember what Lloyd said and mention I also have sweet TEETH.  Good for you in following how you felt about not driving.  I told Pat last night after we picked up our groceries that we must change the time to a daylight hour rather than between 6 and 7 after our Church dinner.  It was raining lightly last night and I didn't enjoy the nighttime driving.  Don't worry about your typing as we are just happy to read your posting and we know you are not shouting at us (unless we need it). 

Jenny, I was thinking about your son and DIL when I read the Weather Channel notification that the Santa Ana winds were suppose to break existing records for strength.  I hope they made it through the night.  It would he very difficult to rest in a situation like they are in.  Does Mark own his home or does he rent?  I hope the acupuncture treatment helped the pain.  That may be something Pat could consider in the future.  I am not aware of any of our parishioner being policemen.  Yesterday Pat made strawberry jam in the Instant Pot.  The recipe was not a success as the honey I had gotten at Costco was so strong it overpowered the strawberries and I had to Frebreze the house as the it was an unpleasant smell.  I doubt that the jam will be edible.  We did get to speak to our great grands last evening for a few minutes.

Hal, do you microwave the fried pies?  I find that often freshens up a bakery product that had gotten a bit stale.  The condition of your roads sounds like a good time to stay off of them. 

Amy, sure hope the doctor visit isn't for something bad.  It is worrisome when we are called in for a doctor's appointment.  It sounds like you are making good use of your pill splitter.

Good Morning everyone.

18-4" 38" 8 ply. also I have but no lounger use axle mount duels. do not do any row crop anymore. so do not need the extra traction. just feed hay and light work with it. it dose have cab air and heat as needed. I have lot of equipment and machinery need to sell and retire mostly. going to keep haying equipment and get rid of constriction equipment mostly think I will however keep the rock cruiser and high loader to Handel the rock with a good asset. rock /gravel is always a good seller. I can run the track Howe easy. Have a great day.

Good Morning Everyone!

I am back from Men's breakfast and bible study.  Had a good discussion this morning.

Weather here is cold and rainy.  Suppose to stay that way until rain stops sometime this afternoon.  It was 39 degrees on car temp thingy.

I still have one more appointment today, at 1 PM, with my eye doctor for a final followup on my eye.  I want check when they have me down for my left eye.

Anyhow, hope everyone is having a good day.  Lloyd I was gone I guess when you tried to call.  I leave computer on during the day. Even when I am not around.

Jenny, thanks for the detailed message on Marks' area. Sylmar was used as a danger area. I am so sorry. Your son is doing his very best to keep his place safe. I pray he will make it through safe and secure. And may God give you the hope and confidence needed at this time.

I'm still blah. Took a long hot shower this morning..sure felt good. Was told I can walk the hallways now, but still confined from "people" areas till the anti-biotics are all used. It is me, or it is the medicine, but I am soooo tired. Glad to stay home. I did go out and walked hallways today, it really wore me out.

Time to stretch out in the recliner again.....Hugs and love, June
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Well, shucks, Hal..... I keep hoping we'll get that snow, even moved the snow blower closer to the door "in case" it is needed.   :tissue:

Jenny, I am hanging onto every bit of news about those fires & think of you & the kids ... with a prayer in my heart. 

Still have my splitting headache, 2nd day & no let up.  Figure it's because when working outside I would get hot & take off my hoodie & my ears & sinuses do not like the cold wind.  Couple more days of pain to make sure I don't do it again, & will give me peace.  Almost like the migraines I used to have only it's the back of my head & migraines were always in the front.... but makes the eyes hurt so computer screen makes it worse.  I'll live & whine............Goodnight, all...

Good afternoon. The winds calmed down quite a lot and therefore the news out of Marks area of California is much better this afternoon.  They have lifted many of the evacuated areas and Mark was able to get to the Golf club to check it out.  It appears there is no damage to the building at all, but the fire did burn right up to the building.  They will meet at 11 AM tomorrow and assess the damage to the course and the building and will see when they can hope to reopen.  All planned activities have been cancelled through the weekend.  While he was at the club he was able to get some great videos of the helicopters getting the water out of the lake on the property.

In driving around his neighborhood he was shocked to see just how close the fires burned to their home.  LARRY, I believe you asked if Mark owns the home, and the answer is no, they are renting the home.

Again, I thank you all for your possitive thoughts and prayers.  The fires have caused so many problems, and sadly many area continue to fight the awful wind and fires. 

I just discovered I did not finish my post......😪 it is now nearly time to hit the hay. 

A snow storm started here and the roads became a mess very quickly.  I have been on the telephone so much all evening hearing how the family members commutes went. 

JANE, I hope you are going to be able to rest well tonight so you are set for your finger repair tomorrow. 

SHIRLEY, I am sorry to read that your headache continues. I do hope you will wake up and feel much better tomorrow.  I thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

LARRY, so happy you got to talk to all of the greatgrands last night.  I am sorry to read the jam did not turn out well and caused a aroma that was not pleasant.  Mark said they looked forward to a much better night of rest knowing that the fires have let up.  I feel that the pain in my neck/shoulder area continues to be better today....maybe acupuncture is something Pat should consider. 

I must say good night.  I hope you all rest well.

Good morning everyone...

Not  sure I will have a waltz with the snow blower but a few steps with the shovel are in order this morning.Very windy out  but not snowing now.
Yesterday was a long day, due to an appointment in the morning then meeting the Dr in the afternoon .Dr has contacted a specialist to carry on with this and said we should get a phone call soon. Just taking this one day at a time.

Jane, prayers your way for you, all too soon it will be all over with  and hope it fixes your finger.

Jenny, I saw on the news last night where a young man stopped to rescue a bunny from the fire. Fire was almost upon them both but he didn't give up and he did get the bunny!!!

Shirley, headaches are no fun, they throw everything off. Hope you feel better today..

June, hope you feel better today, don't rush it and set yourself back.

Larry, that is great news on your eyes! Amazing what they can do now in surgery.

Fire is on ,tea made and I had better get ready to dance..

Have a great day everyone..

Today is Don's birthday.  We shall see if he feels up to going out for breakfast.  There was a freeze warning last night.

Our son called  and told us the visitors staying at our home in the Denver area are having problems with the garage door not staying up.  This happens ever year - it takes two of us to get a car out of the garage because the door wants to slam down.  We forgot to tell the visitors about that little issue....

Shirley:  Nice picture of the restored B-29.  We visit the resting place of many planes at the south end of Tucson.  It is fascinating.

Amy:  I will try to send you a photo of the latest quilt - it has to be finished at home but the top stitching (by a pro) came out great. Hoping you can see the circles she put in the design.

Hi Everyone. We have a rainy morning and last evening they were saying on the local weather that we might see some snow today.  However, the forecast this morning shows we will continue to have rain but the temperatures will stay in the 40's so not likely we will see any snow and if it falls it will melt right away.

I plan on staying home today and inside where it is nice and warm.  I have several small projects to do after I finish reading and posting this morning.  I did go to coffee yesterday and then to the Wisdom group and finally stopped at Aldi's for a few items, including eggs which had gone up to $0.99 a dozen whereas they had been less than $0.40 a dozen. 

Lloyd, my dad always had Farmall Tractors.  I had to do a Google search to remind myself what the IHC stood for.  Our tractor had no cab air or heat and no cover over the seat.  I spent many hours on it in the fields.  As I recall we had a model H and I think later dad may have had a model M.  Thanks for the information.

Hal, you were colder in Texas than we were here in South Carolina yesterday.  I am amazed at how much better I am seeing now and the second eye's vision is now almost as good as the first eye.  I will have to keep a pair of reading glasses in my shirt pocket for close work. 

June, I expect those antibiotics are contributing greatly to your fatigue. 

Shirley, why are you anxious for snow?  That is not something I want to see on the ground although wouldn't mind seeing some snow flakes.  Hope your headache is much better or gone today. 

Jane, hope the finer repair goes well and the pain will be gone. 

Jenny, that is great news from Mark.  Hope his club won't be closed long as sure they depend on the revenue and certainly glad he didn't lose his home.  Glad your pain is lessened.  Glad to know of your apparent success with acupuncture. 

Amy, your report from your husband's doctors appointment doesn't sound good.  I hope you hear from the specialist soon.  I saw that same report about the bunny.  I thought the young man was very foolish to actually jump over the fire for the rescue.  It is amazing what the cataract surgery does.   

Carol, Happy Birthday to Don.  Glad your quilt turned out to your satisfaction.

Good Morning Everyone!

Well it was quite a night.  Snow came down and covered everything.  First time my dog and GGrandkids had seen snow, she wouldn't walk on it this morning when she went out to take care of business.  We had a nice fire in the fireplace last night and it was cozy and warm and "wham" the power went off, power outage covered most of the area.  Of course it didn't affect our fireplace so we had warmth in our den/kitchen area but the rest of the house got pretty cool.  Anyhow we sat in candle light all night and I finally went to bed, wife stayed in den on the couch with fireplace going, it is a gas fireplace so no toting wood or ash.  Power came back on around 2AM and furnace ran for what seemed like hours warming the house up.  Temp was below freezing out, first freeze of the year.  At any rate we still have snow on the ground.  Although, it is now rapidly melting and will be gone in short order.

My appointment with eye doc went okay yesterday.  She said it had (my eye) healed well and looked great.  Larry like you I am well please with the improvement in vision, cant wait for my other procedure next month. 

Shirley, I know how headaches can be.  Wished I had some solution to yours but nothing I know of will make them stop but Tylenol or something like that.  But if you don't like taking a pill I would go to doctor and get a shot that will make them stop and let you rest.  You cant burn the candle at both ends babe and not expect to pay a price.

Had to laugh at paper this morning, of course, had to put in the global warming crap about our little snow event.  Like we had never had snow before.
No global warming at all for 18 years 9 months – a new record.

Nothing on tap here today, except watch the snow melt. 

Janie, I hope the procedure works on your hand.  I am sure it will just will take a little time.

Everyone have a great day.

Hal, I liked your description of the snow outside, fireplace going, power off - I pictured a Christmas scene on a card.  We have snow on the ground too but I think ours will stay because our temps will be in the 20s for a while. 

Whitecaps at Grand Haven again.  The water is warmer than the air, so no ice yet.
