OK - thanks for the input.  I had forgotten Bold. 

Yesterday, I was worthless - and have been for 4 days but did turn a corner last night and slept half the night at least.  Progress.  We are working on leaving Arizona on Saturday morning but can change if needed.  I wonder how long we can keep this routine up - and we do return to higher altitude so huff and puff until we get used to it again.  I am so glad that whatever crud I have is better - it was worrisome to think of all the little chores. 

Shirley:  Ghandi - perfect! 

Mary Ann:   :hb3:  ----and many more.  Eat cake. 

Shirley:  I couldn't figure out what you were writing about - Tommy and thought that was a relative.  Now I understand.  Slow thinking today - me, I mean. 

Lloyd:  Just head west - Jenny and I will meet you at the corral - Shirley will hitch a ride, I am sure. 

That is enough exertion today - time for a wee nap.  Just to drift off a few seconds is all I need.

Can you read the teal color?  It is my favorite but seems a bit light to me. 

Soda Shoppe / Re: Soda Shoppe for April 15,2018
« on: April 22, 2018, 04:53:59 PM »
My favorite color - lets see how this shows.

Jenny:  So happy to read you are on the mend.  We are scheduled to leave on Saturday & get to Santa Fe that night - "Lord willing".  "iffing the Creek don't rise"  I sure do pause and remember Columbine School - our son & wife had bought a house that a student had lived in previously.  I was sitting a grandson and huge flower baskets arrived with notes of condolence and mainly from major T.V. personality.  Thankfully, a neighbor knew where to bring the flowers - so terribly sad. The library was well-known to us and never the same afterward.  We should meet at Kneader's. 

Not feeling well - it may be allergies because of the dry - extreme dry conditions. Who knows - there are still things to do so I just keep on. 

JaneS: Here is your  :grouphug:

Gloria de:   We are so fortunate to have granddaughters. 

Mary Ann - coconut pie - it has been ages.

Beautiful photo from Amy - snow always looks prettier in the country -

Jenny:  Someone must have called  I cannot imagine why no one came to check on you and tell you help would be arriving.  How is your finger?  good grief - that is enough.

Jenny:  So sorry you have Shingles.  I had the shot - later was diagnosed by a Doc in a Box - twice for shingles and it turned out to be an allergy instead.  Still uncomfortable but not as painful, I am sure. You didn't need this now.

Jane:  My grandmother was named Emma - she was born in upper Sweden. I love the name. Enjoy.  When can you get together? 

Gloria:  If only the right person would know about "the witch".  Remember, strength in numbers.

Don is making an omelet for our late breakfast.  I have been awake since 3:30 AM.  Wind, and dusty out there and we did smell smoke last night and checked outdoors a couple of times.

Bubble:  How is it that a few people can make decisions on what we read/see. or watch.  We are being herded.  Hope you are well - take care.

Jane:  We check our bills daily and that is why the message was caught early.  Still, we sure try to be careful and I am sure you and others here are aware of the necessity to guard our information. 

This has nothing to do with Money - but I am ticked at a telecommunication company that sends me voice mails before 6 AM on the cell phone.  It has two addresses (when I searched on google) and one is in Colorado and the other in Nogales, Arizona. Fast talking and hard to understand the voice mail.  I suppose that in the end it really is about money and they want me to sign on to something. 

Our real estate investments are looking fine at this point.

Yesterday, we shopped at COSTCO and I used my Visa card.  Only a few hours later, we had a message that someone had stolen our number and tried to buy $1,200  at COSTCO.  I don't know if it was the same store -  It could be my fault that someone was able to glance and copy my number- otherwise, the card sits securely in a protected zip case that is not able to be copied. 

We are sending for two new cards.  Such a hassle -

Just checking in on everyone this mild morning. We sat outdoors looking at stars last night - we tend to do that a lot. The satellite would have been visible but I didn't catch the time. 

I like the quote about an old quilt.  My very last large quilt is ready for binding - (AMY knows that is the edge) so I am bringing it home because there is a table big enough to hold the fabric. 

Gloria:  A long drive in this heat!  We met a record this week - not fun.  We had a little house with three babies in it for a while - somehow, it worked and I even had a sewing machine although no time to sew.  Sewed on the kitchen table at night. 

Joy:  enjoy your feast!

June:  Can someone bring a plate to you if you feel too tired to make the trip?  Blessings to you.

Jenny:  It was 100 yesterday in Phoenix - here, in Tucson the place is higher altitude but it has been setting records this year as well.  I am wondering if you have Acid Reflux? Take care. 

Amy:  So, you vehicle automatically slows (we can only hope) and makes a turn whenever close to the fabric shop?  It can't be your fault - the engine has taken over your life.   ;)

Jane:  A brand new baby today?  How fun - prayers for Jim as well.

Gloria:  Thank you for posting Galatians message. 

Larry:  This is hot and dry for this Seattle girl.

Roley:  Glad you came in and let us know what is happening. 

Have a great day all - I had a haircut yesterday and baked scones plus got to a genealogy class that was actually interesting.

Cousin and wife left yesterday - Don was so tired from driving to Tombstone, walking around and watching the shoot-out at the OK Corral, looking at the graves in Boot Hill, etc.  Usually, I spell him half the time - as we do driving home in three weeks. We have been watching the stars at night and looking for the UFO that was spotted by two pilots a while ago.  :)

I cannot understand watching new movies with all the terrible curse words - it seems the writers force their way of communication on everyone.  Such a waste of talent.  We just turn them off.

Back in here - our daughter called on the phone and one son called over the computer at the same time, so we were both chatting away.

A cousin and wife just left this morning - they are from Washington and we drove them to Tombstone yesterday to visit the reenactment of the OK Corral gunfight.  Such a colorful place - such a grim time in the town's history.  the locals have a great time and dress in cowboy clothes or ladies of the night apparel.  They shoot guns (with blanks) so deafening to your ears - and act the part.  Returning here, Don was so tired from driving, that we had a light super and sat outdoors under the stars talking late into the night. 

Hi Jenny!

It is a sad day for family and friends in Canada as a team of jr. hockey boys collided with a truck and at least 14 died.  Our family grieves for the friends and family.

I am up earlier today as Marisio (sp) promised to show around 8 am and I have been awake since before 6.  He missed us and never thought to call for two days - has been paid 1/2 of the bill and we want the ceiling in the bathroom that was damaged from a leak repaired.  Two people recommended him - but so many of these private contractors just do things in their own time and expect a person to be home.  Especially women -

 A very Happy Easter greeting (early) to all. 

Someone mentioned Stations of the Cross - we have driven through New Mexico at the right time of the year so many times and have seen scores of people walking a great distance off the highway. They really celebrate by a very long trek.  This is always north of Santa Fe. 

We will celebrate tomorrow with lunch & a total of 8 of us.  I am making two salads - so nice of the younger people to invite us.

Gloria:  Thank you for your post - much is given to us!  It is just so wrong that a woman in charge of your place can be so evil. 

Jenny:  Try not to worry - it is hard to handle the folks whether they are near or far - being far away does make it more difficult.  But --- when they make up their minds, it is so difficult to even talk to them.  Hugs to you - stay healthy.  I hope Bob is mending!

My dad died on Halloween (in Seattle) and mom died on Thanksgiving in Alzheimer's unit in Minnesota (the same year) so I had my hands full - Don had a new job and had to take leave twice right away. 

Jenny:  Give Bob a gentle hug from me. ... so sorry, just rest and mend.

A record setting 90* F is promised then it will drop to the 80's in Tucson.

We are invited to an early supper - this is the 2nd day of 3 total days celebrating a friend's birthday on St. Patrick's Day.  Her name is Pat.  Today will be tacos and tomorrow cake and ice cream.  Yesterday, we had her and one daughter over for hours of visiting outdoors - today is cool. 

Jenny:  Sorry for the news on Tripp - how devastating for the family to endure such a long time of his hospitalization then all end.  We are to believe there is a reason and perhaps more medical knowledge can be gained from this sacrifice.  What a shock for you regarding Bob's open wound.  Glad you have your expert and we hope Bob is recuperating quickly. 

I baked two heavy loaves of pumpkin cranberry bread and will freeze them to be ready for company.

Keith:  Thank you for taking time to send a message on your aunt Gloria's condition.  We wish her a quick recover and send up prayers.

Jane:  Lily is such a lovely name - for a wonderful dog. 

Gloria:  Colorado could use that heavy snow.  The powers in the state want to have winter Olympics - I say, you cannot count on the snow.  The powers are blind to reality anyway and usually financially benefit from any of their "ideas". 

Jenny:  Bless Bob!  With all the good news about his skin cancer, it is a wonderful thing that it can be removed.  Hang in there!  No one promised us a smooth road in our lives.

Callie:  You have a pear tree?  I sure miss the one we had in our yard when I was growing-up.  Mom used to can a lot of pear and we would just climb the tree and eat one right there. 

We have taken the bird feeder in the back yard down.  The javelina knocked it over and spilled seeds on the ground.  About two dozen quail are dancing in the desert right now and the other birds are baffled.  Don took a long walk after our time spent at the VA and we are just going to have a quiet evening. I left a long-winded lecture early - it was on genealogy.

Today, Don and I will visit the VA for a walk-in appointment. I hope to get to a genealogy lecture this afternoon.  We shall see. He has signed us up for more lectures this fall so we will do the routine of driving home at the end of April. 
Jane:  One of my Swedish grandmothers was named Emma - and she came to America from upper northern Sweden at the age of 19 - in charge of two younger brothers. If they have another girl, they can name her Lily - my other grandmother.   :)  Snow only on the grass - heaven!

Larry:  Taking a pill before a test can happen so easily.  It just seems that there are so many "reminders" to answer to these days. 

I read that our brains need a full 7 hours of sleep and last night began to take the full sleeping pill instead of 1/2 pill.  I did sleep longer.  For decades, (try raising 4 children, work, and taking classes) I never slept even 6 hours a night. 

My neighbor fell at the grocery store - she walked away from her cart and did not take her cane.  She is a sweet woman and lives alone - very independent so we are careful to not intrude but just check on her.

There is no DST in Arizona.  However, of two large reservations one has a change and one does not.  There are no street lights here except on the main roads so it is very dark.  We can check out stars and planets.

MaryAnn:  Cursor is a perfect name for the little devil. 

Two sons and one DIL have fierce colds and our DIL had to take a plane trip yesterday but she was not contagious at this stage.

Thankful today - I was able to plant two sticky cactus (cacti is plural) in a clay pot without re-injuring my hand from the last prickly episode. 

Jane:  Overnighting  some Get Up and Go to you!  Hang in there.

  Lloyd:  Sorry, I meant June's story.  This is what happens when I get interruptions.  I never sleep a full 7 hours - wishing you very good health and look forward to your interesting stories from home.

We are awaiting a roofing company check - there was a leak for about one day over the back bathroom.  This is a tile roof and we don't know how to fix something so different.

My mother's dad lived in a small village on a lake in Minnesota.  Every winter, they cut blocks of ice and kept all the loads covered in hay.  This lake is so clear that the ice has been used for the winter carnival in "the cities" - Minneapolis, St. Paul.  I have cousin who cut ice just for the carnival and they have been featured on t.v. and newspapers.  It is a tough job.

Larry:  The colds around here have lasted longer than normal and have been tough to handle. So far, Don and I have kept away from some gatherings and now doors and windows are open so fresh air can cleanse the house air.  Best wishes for your pacemaker check. We unplug a lot of things just to help reduce electrical cost but for safety as well. 

Amy:  Have you been asked to resew hems for anyone?  Once, a woman I had only met at church came to my door with a stack of her slacks and asked me to hem them - I didn't take the whole stack.

Now the temperature is averaging almost ten degrees above normal and we are wondering just what is ahead this year.  I am still allergic to something in this air.

Lloyd:  Cute joke - Shirley is still laughing. 

It is so interesting to read notes from around the world.  Different living conditions, weather and all sorts of news. 

A chicken carcass with a lot of meat is simmering in the crock pot for soup.  The weather is beginning to warm a bit in Tucson - Jenny:  You would like this temperature as it doesn't get as hot as Phoenix. 

Don just returned from a walk - he met a javelina scooting by and that is a bit unusual in daylight.  Both son and DIL have rough colds - so far no flu.

We are all different:  we are all the same.   :)

Bubble and Don:  Great pictures - Bubble, you have the sweetest smile.  It looks very safe in Israel!

Jack:  Goldens are so great.  We have great family stories about our Golden.  Sad day here as middle son had his dog put to sleep - Loki (Norse God of Mischief).

Gloria:  It was nice to see snow in the hills.  The Rocky Mountains are so low in snow depth that it could be a serious problem. 

Callie:  Nice that everything is safe in your house once more.

It is so good to read your notes - kudos to Carolyn for returning.

Joy:  I will google your ornament site.  Still need to finish some other projects - we visit a lot here and go anywhere at the drop of a hat so not much gets accomplished. 

We will pick our daughter up at the airport in about an hour.  She visits here once a year and of course, often when we are home.  There is some snow on the Tucson mountains and it sure will not last long.  It is a beautiful sky and wonderful winter view this morning. 

Coffee is hot and I baked brownies.  Help yourself!
