I am hoping everyone is super careful on the ice/snow.  May you all be safe from the flu and colds too.

The yard is open here and a herd of javelina came though sometime in the night and wreaked havoc.  They broke a pottery bird bath - where I had put a block of quail seed.  Also, they scratched and shredded cushions on our two rockers.  ACE hardware had a solution and we bought some pellets that smell like coyotes (they are the enemies to javelina.  Other solutions would be to fence the yard (to expensive) put in motion sensor lights or sit outdoors and point a stinging gun (they animals do bite).  We shall see how this works.

A crock pot is simmering with split-pea soup - ham bone is in it to make it more ham tasty.  We will have a lot to freeze for quick meals later.

Amy:  Great news.  Now you can breathe. 

Shirley:  I made a mistake with our youngest son and his little finger was really broken - he could bend it when I proclaimed it was Okay.  Dreadfully shameful for that mistake. 

I lost a dear friend last year when she waited much too long to go to the ER - she was told to go home and put affairs in order.  Be careful about "toughing it out".  Miss her and her family misses her big time.

Finally, some down time to check in this group.  I read a few of the notes and comments on weather.  It is a dry winter so far in Colorado and the mountains are severely in need of snow - I think 6 states depend on that water. whenever I see a new development with a front "water feature" it looks like no one is listening to warnings. 

wjoan:  How is your snow in the mountains?  I forgot to ask my brother in Chelan.  What is happening in your area?

Larry:  Perhaps Pat can get a 2nd. opinion or even three?  A friend who had the surgery has a shot about every six months and she also goes to a pool for their special exercise.  Dairy Queen sounds so good.

Jane S.  I wish you the best in your bonus check. 

Jenny:  The funeral procession etc. is on You Tube for our fallen police officer.  It is filmed at Cherry Hills church - and it is a Police funeral .  The entire video has to be a couple of hours - I finally had to turn it off but did watch and listen to the very young widow read her letter.  Terribly sad.  Have you heard how the other wounded are doing? 

Shirley:  Great idea on the hot water - I use the spray can of WD40   to unlock frozen car doors - bet you know what I mean.  We do not have any animals anymore - instead, we dog-sit and have not been asked to cat'sit so far.  That cat hides from everyone so we have only seen pictures. 

Larry:  Thank you for taking on as Administrator - so nice of you to help out.

Laundry calls -

Just checking in to see how everyone is faring.  We went to a local breakfast place with our 2 for 1 coupon and service took forever.  Because... drum roll here --- the computer was down and the 4 guys cooking had a hard time reading cursive writing orders.    ::) 

Don took me to my favorite thrift store that is near an upscale neighborhood.  I found a large airtight container for a small bag of flour in my pantry, beautiful greeting cards for just notes to friends, plus a perfect basket to fit on the empty shelf in the t.v. cabinet - it will hold all our cords and more.  $6 for everything - another good deal.  Don is out blowing the droppings from a mesquite tree.  Wonderful looking tree - too messy for too many months.

Gloria de:  Your work on the family history is one of the nicest gifts ever.

When a traffic circle was installed near daughter's home, they had so many crashes---because of the arrogance of "me first" drivers.  In Europe, especially Sweden - it was so pleasant because the drivers followed the rules.  Interesting to read about all those mishaps.

My friend has Spinal Stenosis and she has a shot every few months.  She does a lot of stretching exercise daily.  It sounds like a constant care is needed just to function.   :grouphug: 

GrnMt.Gal:  Minus 25, that is really freezing.  I hope everyone keeps their power.  Now to look up the town of Wells.

Quilts -- I made a binding for a queen-sized quilt yesterday and even that is just too huge anymore.  Both the iron and little space heater were "on" and that caused a power failure - it happens in this house.  My mistake.

I have to call for hair appointments here one hour ahead of when we want to be in the shop.  Nothing like that makes sense to me - a waste of time and motion particularly for those who answer the phone in the shop.  Organize the place.

Hal:  Sincere prayers for your SIL Steve to recover totally. 

Jenny:  One of our sons works on University ave and the staff stood by windows to watch the funeral procession - that took place at Cherry Hills.  This idea of a mentally ill person having all that firepower -- I can't go on. 

Amy:  I never thought running the snow blower was a dance - it seemed pure grit.

Yesterday was the monthly genealogy class on DNA - more science that I needed. I started to count the number of times the young speaker said "So" before every sentence.  So, you know, and so forth.   

 Don went to a lecture on China and had to leave because of outside noise blocked everything for him.  Other than that, we will try to get back to exercising again and my allergy headaches are lessening.  Rain today may be helpful.

Larry:  No more house payments for you and Pat!!! Hooray!   

Thinking of Jeanne Lee and thankful that her son is by her side.

We had an airport adventure yesterday at Denver - not a good one.  We were booked on a really cheap flight to Tucson with a connection in Salt Lake City.  Of course, the Delta flight was changed so much that it would never make the plane from SLC to Tucson.  There was no help - I was told that we would have to spend the night at the airport in SLC and they would book us on a mid-morning flight  Finally, someone right there told me she would send us on a United going straight into Tucson.  Hooray.  However, she told us to go to Gate 95 and run.  That was just awful and when we did arrive at Gate 95, we were told to run to Gate 55.  We have been worthless all today - we just can't do that in that altitude. But... the flight was flawless - and I do know what can and should be done.  Kudos to the people who really helped us.  Made it to the car and drove back then this morning I shopped for fresh veggies, etc. 

Jenny:  It is perfect here right now.  You can do it.... you might want to blindfold Bob and tell him you are taking him for a surprise destination.

Mary Ann:  Rusty we are.  You would not believe how weak we both feel today. 

Larry:  I need to look at the settings - have been making cheese soup today.  Hi to Pat!!! 

Gloria de:  Huge duck!  Do the children get their pictures by that duck?  Don's doctor told him to keep drinking red wine - they talk about Italian wine every visit. 

June:  Did you get a renewal today?   Send me a renewal right away - thanks.

Sandy:  That sounds like a comfortable heater for you - do you think you may add some humidity to the room too?  We seem to feel better with a bit of humidity - and it stops shocks from friction on the rug.

In two weeks at home, we have only had this morning of quiet.  Love the children. Exhausted. 

Today, g daughter and daughter arrive with one dog.  Tomorrow,
everyone and one more dog arrives.  Plus, the three sons and one g son will be installing a message door opener for us.  We had no choice in any of this.  Very welcome indeed.

So nice to read your notes and I send up a prayer where needed.
We leave for Tucson and arrive at midnight on Saturday. 

Does anyone else have a message from Facebook saying to change the sign on?

Every day is flying by so fast.  We will have everyone here on Friday night and Saturday late afternoon we catch two flights back to Tucson (cheaper, but exhausting).  Tonight, our youngest son is arriving with his wife and entire meal for all of us.  Tomorrow, another son is visiting for the day and Thursday night - daughter and granddaughter stay overnight - Friday night, oldest son & wife & grandson & doggies stay over.  The guest bed is really being used this week. 

There is snow on the ground - Jenny is probably pacing the floor since the beloved Broncos had a terrible day.  We watched the Vikings (Minnesota) cream Wisconsin Packers.  Notice how Green Bay always fills their stadium even in the coldest weather. 

Jane:  Nice to hear better news on your Jim.  Blessings at Christmastime. 

Jenny:  I talked to my doc and she is keeping me on as a patient.  It made the entire trip worthwhile to hear that news.  She is all about keeping patients happy.  She also gave me the name of a doctor in Tucson where I go - in case we are not home.  It is like a load lifted.

We have had so many issues with electronics - can't explain it but charging cords that worked had suddenly stopped, not all of them.  We had to buy a new cord for Don's android book and it is doing OK now. 

Chatted with one brother today - and with neighbors and friends every day.   We are just about talked out.  Not looking forward to the trip back as we have to change planes in Salt Lake and if everything is on time, will arrive in Tucson around midnight.   

Have a peaceful week all.

Hello Lloyd!  Be sure to put a hat on in that wind.   Merry Christmas!

some day!  3_flights from Tucson to Denver.  No food served so I ran and bought muffins.  I lost a small bag containg charging cables so I am sad. 

Thrilled that one of the boys had our house in order and timed our pickup perfectly.  Two major crashes on the freeways and we still got through.  We had neighbors relatives from East use our house and they took loving care and even invited us to visit their farm in Missouri so that would be so fun. They were here for our friends funeral.

So nice to read your posts.

Joy:  I know what you mean about still being concerned with any of the children traveling - just about anytime. 

Our daughter was a GS and I was a co-leader.  So, the meeting was at our house every other time.  Sure do understand when you mention Scouts everyone still thinks of the boys. 

We are ready to catch a plane in the morning and the children have all kept in touch with us - they have so many things planned.  Last year, we did not go home for Christmas and really missed everyone.

Here are just a couple of old money quotes. 

Too many people spend money they earned..to buy things they don't want..to impress people that they don't like. --Will Rogers

A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart. --Jonathan Swift

Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. --Epictetus

Money often costs too much. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Everyday is a bank account, and time is our currency. No one is rich, no one is poor, we've got 24 hours each. --Christopher Rice

Wishing everyone good health, fine companions, and good sleeping every night.

We are just about ready to leave town tomorrow - I will write about the two flights after it is over.  We are ready.

Joy:  That is so impressive!  Congrats to the parents who guided the young men to finish what they started in Scouts.  I know that our Eagle jumped in a pool and pulled a youngster out of trouble - and also prepared a group on a camping trip for a storm that was imminent. Very modest about it too. 

Jenny:  Of course, it will snow if I come in without my boots.  Looking forward to a moister climate because of headaches and allergies for almost three months.  Happy Christmas to you and all your family.  What about your son - Mark? in California.  Do they have a house to stay in?   

Jane: What is a short register?  Do you mean fewer items?  May you have a wonderful time with everyone this season - may everyone treat you super nice!

Hal:  Poor doggie - I hope your pal is alright. 

There will be no rest for us when we land at the airport.  We are going to watch a cute little very easy to care for - dog.  Also, two of the children will be with us as they are in meetings in the city, etc.  Neighbors want us to visit.  Children.... grands, etc.  Dr. appointments - and so forth.  Tis the season plus all the needful things to be taken care of in the next two weeks.

Cards are in the mail today.  Don makes them every year and they are personalized - he gets nice feedback from the effort and he likes the task anyway.  We can't do much here - the plane of no frills awaits us Saturday morning and I am sure there is no food on the connection either.  So, must only take one little bag (no purse) to tuck under the front seat.  We can do this because we planned this before coming to Arizona - now going home this year because it was too awful missing everyone.  There is a bit of snow at home. 

It is sunny in Tucson. We had a wonderful view of the stars last night and watched the shooting stars.  Every December this rolls around here and all the news stations reminds everyone to go out and catch a view. 

Amy:  Fixer of all!  Good for you.  I come from a family like that and people were astounded when they would see mother changing oil on the car.  She checked tires, etc.  Born on a farm and raised in the little town - parents from overseas - they did everything.  Good for you!  Do you grow your own mustard plants? 

Joy:  Love the Boy and Girl Scouts.  One g-son achieved Eagle status.  Our own daughter and sons were all in the scouts & I shared leadership with both groups.  It was not easy to control everyone at times.

The stars were magnificent last night.  All the shooting stars started early, thankful for that as we didn't want to get up at 2 AM.

Yesterday, the quail returned - they are the so cute.  Little Bobble heads.

Callie: We bought an :Alexa" for $39 and I listen to a radio station at home.  It even found a station in northern Minnesota.  Very clear reception - you have to have wifi for it to work.  Next week, begins the cookie baking- or at least hot fudge sauce for family and friends.  Years ago, my neighbors and self would begin baking and so for right after Christmas. 

Larry:  the small but excellent health insurance company we used was bought out by a well-known company - the new ones promised "nothing will change".  Ya sure - you betcha.  Immediately, everything changed for their corporate greed.  I have to ask my doctor if she could accept me as a patient with my new plan - otherwise, with the greed plan, I would not be covered out of state.  Am very sure a lot of people do not read the fine print because it is so boring.

Larry:  I will ask for a lift at the airports this time.  We cannot have a seat assignment either and I am going to mention "hearing disability" for him - so true.  You know - I am not in charge of anything.

As one grandson came and told us "It is what it is and you don't throw a fit" - his mother had just laid down the law. I think he was five or six at the time.

Lloyd: Interesting news on camel milk.

Hal:  Depending on what is stopping up the sink, you might try pouring boiling water in there - wish I could be there to help.  A good cleaning is with vinegar poured over baking soda- then, I pour a kettle full of boiling water.  Keeps everything going. 

Shirley:  So sorry about your headaches.  Allergies can appear at any time suddenly- it could be that - well, keep on looking for the cause. 

Larry:  the game was awful according to Laura but she and her husband were able to see the high points this family knows in Duluth.  They met with her god-father for lunch in the Twin Cities and then went to the college he attends in south of there. 

Amy:  Loon in the lake - love the loons.  Send more south!!!

Callie:  Mother always said that "Friends are like Gold". So true.

Gloria de:  Your Cape Cod set-up sounds interesting.  We have the miniatures of a Colorado mountain town plus the Nativity scene.  Probably only the two things we will set up this year as we will be with daughter (everyone) on Christmas Day.

Daughter wants us to stay over for two days and I am very leery of taking Don up there as he has be really exhausted with the new medicine.  In fact, the dose will increase and it may get worse.  Trying not to stress over taking him on the plane , wishing it was non-stop but both ways have us changing planes (to save on the fee). 

Our neighbor/friend called and said her Missouri family has vacated our house - they stayed about 4 days for funeral and family gathering. 

Jenny:  I am going to try to talk to my doctor to ask if she would keep me on as a patient- wish me luck. The entire mess is all about Cash Flow - is that more important?  You two take care. 

Callie:  Two blocks for the terrorist.  Too close - big hug to you!

Amy:  I am sorry that I missed reading the little clue about your husbands health.  A specialist is a good idea when called for - may he recover soon. 

Gloria de: Don will get a kick out of a greeting from you.

Our daughter just called as they passed the lake in Minnesota where the kids basically grew up - the house is valued 3 times what we sold it for - it has lake on two sides - a long dirt road and only five houses there.  It is cold, per usual and daughter and her husband flew into the Twin Cities and rented a car to watch hockey  in Duluth.  Who in their right minds do that?  We did for years and only got caught in one terrible storm.

Jenny:  Since the area near Mark has already burned - do you think he is out of danger now?  It stands to reason that there would not be any dry kindling so to speak in the yards.  LOL on your garage door.  Our Minnesota garage doors worked perfectly - even our Suburban started every time while parked outdoors many nights. 

Shirley:  Can your headaches be allergies?   Take care.

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.

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:  The house was down to 68 here and I am not housecleaning right now - so the heat is on.  What a whiplash change.  And, it colder for you.  Also, barely any snow at Grand Lake - people had better start water restrictions early next year.  One of our sons is getting our house ready for neighbor relatives coming from Texas and Missouri for a funeral - they need a place to stay.  I have beds and a trundle bed and so forth and really, there is no motel or hotel close.  Don and I had treats at Kneader's today - hope you and Bob have tried that place.   

Jane
: I can tell you one breakfast meal that goes over really well with company.  It is very easy. 

Overnight Steel Oatmeal

Place all in a crock pot and set on low when you are ready to go to bed.

4 cups water
1/2 cup half/half or milk
1 cup steel cut oatmeal
dried cranberries and other dried fruits
Spoon in cinnamon to your choice amount
(I stir in a little agave syrup at this point)

Stir and be sure the temperature is set on low.

Serve with more milk, agave syrup (my choice) .

Our relatives who drive out in the morning ask for this breakfast as they climb in their cars for a long distance drive.

If you can wait a couple of weeks, I will check recipes when I get home as I do have a mandarin orange spinach salad with toasted almonds that is OK too.

Jane:  I have most of my recipes at home in Highlands Ranch - I sure will take a look tomorrow but my old tried and true stuff is at home. 

Jenny:  You and Bob celebrate more birthdays and anniversaries and puppy sittings than anyone we know.  Glad you are doing so well.  Yes, the weather is changing here- you would have just loved the full moon coming over the Tucson mountains - amazing.  We have flights booked - it is not the best as we stop in Salt Lake going and somewhere else returning and getting in around midnight.  Don't ask me how this happened - it is the wrong time of the year to fly to the ski country and into the desert getaway. 

Joan:  It is so nice to see you reporting for duty.  we all want you to feel better soon. 

June:   Ditto to you on recovering and feeling better as well.    Take care.   

At dusk, I looked out the front window and spotted a mature Javelina walking down the middle of this side street.  Not a care in the world and some cars barely missed it.

Hal:  Do you have Javelinas in Texas?  I thought I remembered hearing that name when we lived in Plano.

Football all day long, isn't that right, Callie?  Did everyone watch the GIRL win a Dr. Pepper chance for tossing a ball into a giant can?  She won the $100,000 prize to go towards scholarship.  Better than a touchdown!

We are going out early tonight to beat the crowd.  We will pick up our friend, Pat, and treat her to a favorite Pizza place.  It is really great pizza.

Callie:  We will be in Denver on the 16th. - it looks like a change in the weather. 

A quiet day here, I spent some time making pot holders with scraps of fabric. Too much time loading two library books on my reader.  They changed the entire way of downloading and one has to be careful not to "buy" the book.  It is a library, - taxes pay for it - so I pounded out a letter to the library to show my intent is to not buy a library book.

Don looked up something on You Tube and found that there is a movie of one grandson playing the trumpet in high school.  It is great.  Now, he works full time and in school so he doesn't have much time to practice - probably not at all.
