Hi, Mycheal ! Good to see you posting. You are so correct, transportation for the elderly is a grave problem. Prayers will be said.

Lloyd, You were very thoughtful to help out Nancy by doing your work clothes in the old washer. You are a kind  husband and I'm sure your Nancy appreciates you. I am thankful that you are taking better care of yourself too.

I went down for our hymn sing tonight after supper and it was very restful. Tomorrow will be Chapel service and then a day of rest. Of course for me every day is a day of rest, and I am very grateful for that.

Have a Good Night dear ones. I love you all. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Good Morning everyone. well  I had a fair night's sleep .I apparently turned over and hooked the hose to breathing Machine and made the mask leak, the red light was on and machine was squawking. woke me up so I got up ate some cookies and took my meds. came to computer and played a couple games now I think I will go back to bed for a while. I m going to later going to make my jalapeno casserole and have some of the grand and great grand's over for Noon meal. I boiled a dozen eggs yesterday pealed them and cut them and cut them into long way,took the yellows out and turned them over to Nancy she dose a better job of mixing the fillings than I do (taster also). I will see  if she will give me a ideal about what to fix for the little ones that they like and eat. see you all later.

Good morning everyone.
Looking to be a nice day here with no rain I hope. Grass is growing so fast that the lawn mower seat doesn't have time to cool off!!

Yesterday was a better day, I took hubby on a tour of the hospital ,actually several tours of the hospital. Drs are thinking maybe his meds are the cause of his problem so time will tell.

Sorry for not posting to everyone but I need to gather a few things up and the neighbour is running me into town to pick up my van,this time it was my front brakes that needed repair.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyone!

Just up and put coffee on and let the pup out to take care of business and thought I would check mail and forum.  See just a couple of new post.

Amy, bless your heart, things are keeping you on the road.  Prayers are being said and hopefully things will improve so you can take DH home soon.  I know you must want to get into your garden and take care of it.  Give my best to DH.

Lloyd, deviled eggs is what we used call eggs like you and Nancy fixed.  But I am not a great fan of boiled eggs.  Hope your dinner turns out good.

I need to get a move on and get ready for church.

Good Sunday morning Everyfriend.

Lloyd--Good morning.  Those deviled eggs sure sound good.  You will have plenty with a dozen eggs.

Good morning,  Amy.  I do hope the medical folks get to the bottom of your husband's problems.  Hopefully your van will not need further repairs.

Good morning halkel.  You are on the run this morning.

I wish Everyfriend a blessed Sunday.

This Sunday morning starts out sunny and pleasant.  We are to get only into the high 80's this afternoon.  We had a couple of fairly brief but good rain showers yesterday afternoon so won't need to use the sprinklers tomorrow. 

I anticipate a very pleasant day as we will go to Sunday School and Church and then out to eat somewhere.  I will rest, listen to Don's classical music program for a couple of hours and watch golf this afternoon. Then we will have a quiet evening.

I don't have a lot of time to spend on the discussions this morning although have read each postings since yesterday.

Mary Ann, my dental hygienist uses a dental chair that is about 30 years old or more but has the most comfortable neck rest.  On many of the new chairs I have to ask for a little pillow to put under my neck as the neck piece doesn't fit well. 

Hal, if you can find a shop that welds you can probably get the fireplace stand fixed. 

Joy, we do eat an email letting us know the order is ready for pickup from Walmart.  I also usually get a text with the same information.  The call we make to them just gives them time to get the frozen things from the freezer area and be sure your order is all together.  I hope you like the service as it sure saves a lot of time and energy.  I will be interested in your experience with the produce. I suppose people are afraid of liability issues if they give rides to people with canes or walkers.  People here in the South are very friendly and a couple of times when loading groceries in my car truck I have had someone come over and help me or take the riding cart back to the store.  People also speak to each other here. 

June, have you ever tried the elastic tape that doesn't stick to your skin but wraps around the arm or leg and keeps bandages in place.  Where I have blood work done they use it and it is great as it sticks to itself and not to you.  I do hope the honey treatment is helpful to you.  I don't even like the feel of lotion so know that using honey probably wouldn't be my thing although might well try it on a burn.  That sure sounds like a nice young man who provides your transportation.

mycheal, I can see why transportation  even on a seniors type bus would be problematic for many folks living on a very small income. 

Lloyd, those red faces (frowny faces) on the CPAP dial are not nice to get.  Pat had one a couple of nights ago when she couldn't get her mask to seal but seemed to do well last night. 

Amy, are the doctors going to adjust your husbands medications.  I bet he enjoyed getting out of his hospital room for the tours you gave him yesterday. 

Joan, I hope you and all who visit here also have a blessed Sunday.  So good to see your postings again.

Good morning on this pretty sunny morning.

Larry, I saw your message this morning  and I wanted to let you know  that my first experience with the Walmart's online shopping service was a big success.

Since I don't have a smart phone,  I was supposed to get an e-mail.  My time slot was between 9 and 10 a.m. this morning.  My daughter-in-law was waiting for me, so at 9 a.m. I decided to call the special number they had given me.  A very nice young girl told me the order was ready.  The store is less than 10 min. away. There were all kinds of signs directing you to the pick=up area and I think there were about 8 or 9 parking spots. We were the only one there and as soon as we pulled up, the girl came out with the order.  My DIL put all the cold things in my insulated bag and they loaded everything else in the car.  I already had my receipt and we left.   Brought everything in, unpacked everything, as my DIL took the plastic bags for her cat litter box, and it was not even 45 min. that all that took.  I just cant believe how easy and smooth the whole process was.  And, from what I see, all my produce looks great.  So, I sure will be using that service again.  And, early Sunday morning worked out great for my DIL. 

I asked the girl how it was working out and she said they have been so busy and things were working out well, so far. 

I will still go once in a while for other things, but it sure will save me a lot of time and energy,   like you mentioned. 

Yes, I think you are right about people afraid of liability issues.  There is one girl who comes here to help one of the residents and I asked her one day about what she charges and if she would be able to take me to the store or doctor's.  She said "No", because  her insurance wouldn't cover her taking me in the car.  I know she takes this other lady that she helps, so I don't guess she just didn't want an added job. She did tell me she charges $10 an hour and I know that she does a lot for this lady.  She is here several days a week.  Her charge is reasonable.  She is the only person that I know that comes here that does that.

My DIL is planning on retiring next year, and I told her she should start a driving service for some of the people who live where I do.  It is a big problem for a lot of the residents.  I don't know what kind of extra insurance you would need.

Good morning, Joan.  So good to see you this morning.

Amy, sorry you have had car trouble.  On top of your husband's medical problems,  that was one thing you didn't need.

Good morning, MaryAnn.  And, you, too June, Hal,  Lloyd and mycheal.

Hope everyone will have a nice Sunday.

Joy
