It is nice to "see" everyone again.  I am learning a different laptop as my old one bit the dust.  The keyboard is not centered and my hand wants to roam - why would the "experts" do that except to annoy. 

I have been in several earthquakes and one pretty big one in Seattle.  We had earthquake drills in school but that never happened in school.  The entire fireplace fell apart in the house and there was so much dust.  Earthquakes in Colorado too but they were pretty mild. 

Today's storm is going north, perhaps.  Yesterday, there was a lake in the ravine - it did finally drain.  The slow cooker had chicken teriyaki simmering all day - it was OK.  Saturday, we had two of the boys here for oven-baked ribs (5 hours at 200 degrees) and they were nice - plus a bean casserole that I have made for decades.  Next week, another son will be staying for  a couple of nights.

Larry:  The huge evergreen tree is taller than the house.  Tons of birds have nests in there.  At the corner - everyone must turn either right (to get out of the development or left for other homes.  There are a few senior citizens who have accidentally driven straight almost into the sidewalk and fence across the street.  They should not be driving unless they do intend to stop at the stop sign.  I should take a video of the careless ones still driving. 

Someone - not naming - bought a Roomba (the self vacuum) and it is really interesting.  It made a noise the other day and I said, "come in" thinking a neighbor or son was at the door.  So, I need to name this critter that wants to stop under the bed - looking all over the house for it some times. This way, I can vacuum every other day and it does a great job.  It doesn't do laundry yet.   

Success today for finding a new doctor and I am set up this next week. 

One son took a picture of a deer relaxing in the yard nearby - I haven't seen any in the ravine this year and no coyotes are howling either.  Rabbits galore.

Three friends and I are going to view their husband's graves at Ft. Logan this morning.  We will be going early because of thunderstorms predicted for the afternoon.  Typical here.

Shirley:  Safe travel to you - I know you and Jenny keep in touch.  I live withing walking distance to her.

Gloria de:  That is a big park.  I think there are a lot of good things to belong to a group and sometimes there are not so nice ideas about it.  Here, a couple of people want the huge evergreen tree taken out - it is at the corner next to our house.  I love it and the tons of birds love it as well.  Always something to be crabby for some people.   :)

Jane:  I always think of you when we shop at WM - wishing you happy and considerate people in your line. 

Gloria:  I too like Southwest colors and we painted Don's office room a rust color that goes nicely with his wood hangings, etc.  The rest of the house is painted warm - I would say golden beige and accented with rust and splashes of teal or a bit of orange red.  The house was all white (not clean) with even white carpet when we moved in and now everything is changed.  It looks sunny even on an overcast day. 

Tomorrow, we will meet our youngest son's latest rescue German Shepard.  It sounds like he is really sweet.  I hope so - never forgot the meeting with the one named Cochise - who jumped on me, I thought I would die right there from a heart attack.

We stayed in yesterday because of pending storm - there was some small hail but all passed quickly.  Just enough to ruin any picnics and visits to the cemetery.  We will take our neighbor to the Fort cemetery when weather and appointments calm. Today is another VA appointment  and this is different because it is in the afternoon. 

One DIL is driving back  from  Texas today - she had to take care of her mother's affairs - her sister living in TX does nothing.  Sounds like what I had to do with my parents affairs. 

Larry:  I have compiled a list of recipes for an Instant Pot but have not decided if I want another thing in the cabinets. --Two inches of rain is a lot.  I hope it doesn't bring mosquitoes.  I only sew with cotton and now working on batik southwest colors of rectangles.  All leftover fabric - you see, I need to keep on using the stored fabric. 

This week, we will visit youngest son and meet the latest rescue German Shepherd - Zuus or whatever.  Looks like a big Teddy Bear.  They have acreage and live only ten minutes from us - or what used to be ten minutes is now ghastly because of all the migration here.

Not feeling up to par yesterday so I did binge watch WWII movies - am a history buff and I even took a class in WWII history once.

June:  I am glad to hear that you are mending.  Take it easy.

Shirley:  Have a safe trip up the hill.  There is traffic gridlock here now - it is downright horrible to get across or around town.

Gloria:  When you say Illegal, we know what that is from living closer to the southern border 7 months per year.  It is not only people from Mexico and Central America - there are many from mid-east countries who go first to those areas, change their names & learn Spanish only to come across the border - legally and illegally.  One of the great danger is from the campfires that get out of control and cause damage and loss of cattle, even farms. There is so much more the American public has no idea.  We know some families who came from Mexico - great and gracious folks.  Canada has to  put up with the illegals from our country crossing their border.  It is a law and some enforce the law and others let it slide. 

We knew a family across the street once - their youngest was drinking from a baby bottle and she was in kindergarten with one of our children.  I think the child figured out she was the only one that age -

Sandy:  I agree about the day-care - who are they to set down a rule so traumatic to a child?  The little girl would change just by seeing what is happening with all the others.  That would have been better. 

I have a physical this afternoon with my doctor.  It is free because the clinic changed to a new insurance only that does not cover anyone going out of the state.  I must change my insurance and will lose her as my primary care doctor.  Just dread finding someone else.  Jenny knows what I mean because the same thing happened to her with the same physicians group.  She (doc) graciously said she wanted me to come in and have my physical at no cost.  That is my great and good news today.  Don made a pen for her to have as a going away gift.  At least I will have my prescriptions renewed. 

Amy:  You could train a beaver to cut and stack wood.

Tomorrow is my annual physical with my doctor. She will only continue the annual physical so I must find another doctor in my insurance plan.  The office she works with has opted to change to a plan that does not insure anyone stepping over the state line.  She is keeping a handful of patients only - so happy that I have known and chatted with her over the years. 

Health care is very expensive - there are more than a few hospitals in this country which have been subsidized for decades.  One hospital on the Texas border has never broken even - because poorest of the poor women walk over the border to have good care and they have never even seen medical care in Mexico.  That is only one example - someone has to keep the hospital going.  I certainly do not blame the poorest of the poor.

Did anyone read about Amazon trying to use Facial Recognition?  How do you feel about it?  I can see it would be great try to catch a terrorist, find a missing person and maybe a few other features.  But..... our privacy keeps dwindling and we wonder what happens to our children and their children.  Am I paranoid?

Amy:  I hope you can get a better price on the wood and have it delivered  and stacked as well.  Quilt group is coming here tonight - 7 out of the 9.

Gloria:  R & R --- rest and recuperate.  I hope today is better for you.

Joy:  Sorry for your diagnosis but so glad that meds will cure you.

June:  you always write such positive notes  - I think it is getting so overcrowded that is changing manners.  Even school children are not taught the simple things of yesterday - sit down and don't talk - behave - say Thank You.  etc.

Jenny:  Don is going to make a pen for Dr. B.  - I had an appointment there today for a blood draw but had to go to a different site because of my other insurance - total time was about 4 hours of waiting in two offices.  Happy it is over.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate her going beyond care for me.

DON:   HAPPY LANDING!!!!

Bubble:  Take care -we all wish you wonderful days with your family.

Yesterday was a big flub. I baked two loaves of banana bread only to find them collapsed & weird.  Apparently, I must have turned the oven off when I set the time.   :crazy2:  The treats for tonight are from Safeway bakery and look pretty good.  Sun tea is ready - I make mine on the southern part of the deck - just like I learned in Texas.

When checking into one lab this morning, a machine did all the work.  there goes another job.  Don has been using machines somewhat like this at the VA for quite some time.  This one printed out instructions for me.  And, I like to talk to a human.

Oldest son has a 'walking pneumonia diagnosis.   He has three days of checking - he lives at high altitude and we have been concerned.  No plane trips until this is over.

Jenny:  I was going to say that the doctors in Steamboat are really taking good care of him - they phone him to check and have him coming in for 3 days in a row.  They even call and make the appointments so he gets priority.  Some comfort in that for us.

Update on my post about losing my doctor. I had been told everything was alright with my different medical insurance - it would be honored.  I went in for a blood test prior to my actual check-up.  A very determined young woman (new) told me that it would not be honored.  So, I asked Don what should I do - and he told me to go back to the desk and ask to speak to my primary care doctor as she did promise to keep me on.  I did.  4 days later, the phone rang with the news I could still see my favorite doctor.  Cannot tell you how relieved I was with that news.  Sometimes, the right thing happens. 

I wish everyone would do their research and have their problems solved.

I cannot remember if I wrote this before --- I had a call just a few minutes before closing time. Hurrah - my doctor is keeping me!  All because Don told me to explain the situation and to ask to have a call from my doc.  All the while - staying calm.  So very thankful as it would have meant a mess for me medication wise and so forth. 

Jenny:  It is unbelievable how early the baby is detected.  How cute - arms raised like a peacemaker is coming. 

June:  You deserve the tender loving care. 

Lloyd:  eeek a mouse! 

Amy:  Did you get the Singer?  I have a 1948 Featherweight and really do like to set it up - like the clickity clack sound.  A wonderful straight stitch too. It is always a privilege to spot a moose and we are so grateful to be able to visit Rocky Mountain National Park - tons of elk and occasionally a moose.  Now is the time to spot a calf - I sure miss having our place up there but the altitude was over 8,000 ft. and hard for Don.  We are talking about trying to visit their cabin - it sure would be a pleasure to walk in the woods again.   

Larry:  Is Pat using the Instant Pot more often?  I can't decide - I would have to put away things - I do have two sizes of crock pots and use them often. 

Gloria:  We will all be anxious for your six-month wait to be over.  WOW, that is just great someone spent that time with you -- without the tyrant.

There was no blood draw this morning - I was so shocked when the desk told me that they would not take my insurance (when my doctor agreed in December that she would put my insurance through.  So, I have a call into her.  Don says (he is the one to go to) that all they have to do is file a claim. 

Trying to stay calm - I have insurance but no doctor.  Something is very wrong. The office wants me to buy the ins. they have changed to -- here is the rub.  It is worthless if you cross the state line.  What good is that?  We go to Cheyenne, Wyoming and New Mexico, etc. 

I asked my doctor of many years to give me a call because I don't assume the new girl on the desk knows all the facts.  Never assume!

I had an almond croissant to help me calm down.  Thanks for caring. 

Jenny:  Sorry about your cough or cold.  Allergies - I think we are allergic to the hoards of traffic.  Don had an omelet at K's and they put at least a half cup of broccoli in it - it comes that way if you don't say no broccoli.  That is kinda strange to me for being called the American omelet. 

Gloria:  I hope you had a stress less day.

Reading all the notes - I wish everyone well and stay safe.

My Kindle Reader is not fully charging all night long - sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't.  It cost $35 and knowing how much the batteries cost plus I wouldn't know how to fix that problem - this may be another search for a decent price.  Planned obsolescence. 

Gloria:  I will check back later on you. 

Lloyd:  "back in the saddle again"  -  take it a bit easy, please.

My Blood Draw is scheduled at 10 - sipping water.  Don will have to hand me a coffee and I may need to stop at Kneader's for a treat.  That is so late for me.

Amy:  I couldn't sew straight yesterday or something else was wrong so I spent a lot of time pulling stitches.  Nothing accomplished. 

Shirley:  Have a stress-free day - I hope the wind cooperates.  We had wind last night and it shows on the deck. 

Good morning Joy!

Oldest son and wife (along with their little doggie) are coming over the weekend to visit.  They will be eating out with friends so it will be easy.  And, we get to pet the sweet doggie.  I have a blood draw in the morning and next week the physical.  So glad that most of our calendar notes are almost finished.

A neighbor spotted a cougar in the ravine behind our houses yesterday - am on guard here.  Creepy.

We are meeting our granddaughter in Golden for an early lunch - thankfully, I wrote the time down as I was thinking it was an hour and half earlier and pushing Don to "get on with it" - my mistake.  I made a crock pot of clam chowder yesterday and we have enough for leftovers tonight. 

Jane:  Sending you hot chicken broth with a dash of tabasco sauce. 

Gloria:  So true that worrying is useless. 

Joy:  We had all our children and two of their spouses. It is so special.

Larry:  It was a snow storm and probably ice on the roads - knowing Minnesota so well. It sure is getting hot fast this year -

Mycheal:  Your teaching basic money matters is so worthy.  I commend you for your volunteering. 

Amy:  you had a well-deserved snooze on the swing. 

Jenny:  This is the 2nd. cougar seen in the ravine since we have lived here.  No deer around this year.

It is so nice to see Carolyn posting once again -

Jane:  We have a walk-out basement with large bed, a trundle bed, fireplace and two sofas.  A little kitchen area and a bathroom.  It has its own patio too.  However, most people only stay one night - except the family who visits my neighbors.  My neighbor/friend has a lot of family so one group stays here and we can't even tell anyone is in the house sometimes. 

Carolyn:  We only see canned pumpkin until the months to October and so forth.  The combination of pumpkin and sweet potato sounds nice.

Gloria:  Stay warm and toasty.  It is damp and cool here for the next five days.

Last night, there was a crash at the local commuter airport (nearby and also I think is the busiest in the country).  I was on the deck trying to spot the multi-colored flashing lights of a drone searching the acreage.  An engine fell onto a house.  They never fly over our way -- we get the Air Force Academy planes once in a while - a tremendous sound near the mountains. Just sending their greeting :)

This is Teal color:

I can't decide, but teal or aqua is my favorite color. 

My cousin called and left a message that somehow I dialed her number on the old cell phone and she listened for a while then hung up.  Don't you ever wonder what you have said when it is private? 

We have a new cell phone, a flip top just like I wanted because that crazy open one would dial anyone anytime.   The first call today was - a ROBO call.  Don says one of those robo call companies was just fined really big time --- I say hooray. 

Thanks for all the pine needle information.  It is all over this state because of the Pine Beetle infestation.  Very sad to see - but the green is making a comeback.  Nature figures everything out. 

Oldest son is stopping by today and taking us to lunch before he heads up to their cabin. He is coming from the airport - he and our DIL like to spend nights at our house before their flights so we call it the family hotel. 

roley:  You are doing well after your health scares - great that you have a good and caring wife.  Are you having a mild and sunny summer? 

Don hung a bird feeder out and we shall see how much it is used.  If it attracts a messy crowd, it won't stay hanging on the porch. 

Jenny:  We are most likely going to the Rio for lunch.  sometime, we want to go to the one you mentioned a long time ago.  One of these days when all of us are free.   :)

Amazing messages in here this morning.

Mary Ann:  That sounds like a nice plan for a drive - it is interesting that you have two Tom's in the family. 

Carolyn:  Very good to see your post--- so sorry for your son Nikolas and I send up a prayer for his recovery as well.  I hope he has the best care and recovers completely.  I had neck surgery years ago and it finally mended - sure hope you have great care.  - Please keep us posted on Nikolas and yourself. 

Amy:  What do you do with the pine needles?

Gloria:  Glad to hear you had a decent CNA - you deserve a gentle caring person.  Yes, the "rules" continue to grow - we even had more freedom years ago. 

Radioman - Don:  Thanks for the personal update on Israel.  Stay safe you two! 

Thanks Sandy - I always though Patsy Cline had such a different and good voice - perfect for her time.  They all seemed to live pretty rough lives and it comes out in the songs. 

Back to visit with the vacuum cleaner - such a stubborn varmint!

There is a large pan of fudge brownies cooling and it is for the last Wednesday meeting for women at church.  We feast and talk on this one day each year.  Just great!

This was my 2nd afternoon on hand-sewing the binding and I think I am half finished.  Listening to an audio book - I like history and this is about Patten - Don's uncle fought through Africa and up under General Patten and never said a word about it when he returned home.  He refused to talk about that time.

Jenny:  That was a wonderful trip for you and Bob!  Nice for you to have time to visit with California son as well.

Janie:  You had a memorable visit as well - I hope they have a lot of photos with your family and especially with newborn Emma. 

Mary Ann:  How are you going to travel to Indiana?

The quilt show was at a large church.  June R. talked about each quilt, big and small and the entire show took over 2 hours.  That is because she had a ton of quilts to show and there were many given to charity and friends which we did not see.  It was amazing that someone could design so many patterns and she had done this in the last 35 years, she is well into her 80's now. 

Sunday afternoon, I brought my quilt project to our group - they had an all-day work shop.  I couldn't take the time and had my morning with a bible study.  We had a wonderful lunch and I feel so good after listening to the real experts and their ideas. 

I should call the high school that is blocks away - to let them know the darlings are out speeding and whipping across lanes on their lunch hours.  No one cares about the chaos they cause - I remember the tree in Texas near our home - 4 teens died when they were racing to get back after lunch and crashed into that tree.  Still, the school never banned outside lunchtime. 


Shirley:  We can't believe prices either.  I hope you have a lot of enjoyment using your pool. 

I am going to check on the lava flow - it sounds so devastating.

Jane:  Such a sweet time you are having  Good for you and so good for the family. 

Gloria:  There are a lot of things I no longer attempt - so it goes.  Hugs to you! 

Amy:  My neighbor and I are going to look at a few quilts being shown by a gal in her 80's - she has many ribbons, written and designed patterns & books.  Glad to call her a friend.  We are going to Golden, Colorado to the Quilt museum.  June (the quilter) is showing her quilt - I don't know which one.  Privileged to know her and in this group so much talent.  I an way beneath their skills.  but - I make pretty good desserts when they come over.   ;)  You would be welcome.

Larry:  The crush of people has happened so fast - we see too much impatience and actual anger out there - some always have to be in front and weave in and out - it is a sad situation. You would think that there was a Gold Rush - not so.   

I will check out the Hawaii news for an update - fire from the ground, that looked dangerous. 

We just bought a new charger for the phone, etc. and 1/2 of it doesn't work.   Wonder where that thing is made?

I am taking a break after trimming the queen size quilt for g-daughter.  It is ready for me to sew the binding on it - one entire side of the binding by machine and I will finish the back side on Sunday afternoon with the quilt group - the old-fashioned way by hand stitching.  It is therapeutic and quiets the soul.   :)

We had an entire day of rain here in Denver and that was so refreshing.  Snow in the high country but not much.  We can see the results of a mad house on the roads here - so many people moving here that this house could be sold in a half day - any house, really. 

Tomorrow, our group is going to a quilt show and one of the group is showing her fantastic quilts - she is mid-80's and still designing.  She has even written books - my group is way beyond my lowly skills and they are awesome.  I do not use the word awesome lightly. 

Take care all.

Purple is for the Viking football and Hockey and all my Minnesota relatives and friends.

I hope you have have an allergy in Arizona - it was like a sledgehammer hitting my head... well, that is exaggerating somewhat but not completely.  We have been here many times in winter/spring and have never felt like this but I am on the mend and we leave for home tomorrow.  I made egg salad and baked brownies in cup cake holders so we can have sandwiches and such between the long spaces of any towns on the road. 

Don informs me that the car is packed and we made the guesstimate of how much to bring home. 
Phyllis:  Prayers for you son and you as well -
Take care everyone, I will check on you in a couple of days.

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.

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.
