Good night my dear friends.  I fear tomorrow will be a very bad day, weather wise.  The rain is to continue all day tomorrow and into the evening with temps being in the 60s.  Then the temps will drop and the rain will turn to snow and freezing rain.  The entire weekend is looking bad.!  I think I'll stay home and cook something! 

I wish you all warm, healthy and happy! May God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone, warm start to the day, 45°. Heat wave is here.

JENNY  I heard that Wallmart raise on the news last night. Guess they could not be outdone by the "BIG" raise in Social Securitiy this year.

HAL  glad Steve is improving.

JANE  hope you get the $1,000 bonus. That would help with the isulation. Wonder how long it will be before the Churchill movie will be on TV. I would not be able to sit in a theater to watch a movie anymore.

SHIRLEY  glad you are home safe and sound once again. I had many shots of penicillin when I got a strep throat.

JUNE  I am like you wishing we would hear something about JOAN. Been too long since Jenny told us about a message from Joe on Facebook.

JANE  like you we are in for a lot of rain here then freezing with the drop in temperature. I already told my son not to drive here Saturday because of icy roads.

LLOYD  my younger son at 65 has a lot of dark hair with maybe a few strands of white but his beard is white.

Have a good day everyone.

Old Folks

Dear Pastor:
 
    Don't ever forget about us old folks. We are worth a fortune. We have Silver in our hair, Gold in our teeth, Stones in our kidney's, Lead in our feet and Gas in our stomachs.
 
    I myself have become quite a frivolous old gal since I wrote you last.
As a matter of fact, I'm seeing five different gentleman every day.
 
    When I get up in the morning, Will Power gets me out of bed. Then I immediately go see John. A few minutes later, Charley Horse comes along.
When he leaves, Arthur-itis shows up and finally I'm so tired, I go to bed with Ben Gay.
 
    As you can see, we all need your prayers.....

Good morning everyone..

The snow sure has taken a beating here, rained most of the night. Today is rain and then turning cold and  snow. Will nip into town to pick up milk and do a few errands. Have everything in ready of the nasty weather to come.

We are missing Joy? Good to see Shirley back from her trip.

Better get a move on, this sleeping in is becoming a habit.

Enjoy your day everyone, stay safe.

Good morning, Amy.  I am here early this morning, also.

I needed to be up early to get my trash out to the trash room.  And, now I need to go downstairs to put some mail out and to pick up my mail from a couple days.  I don't always get it everyday.  Mostly junk mail, anyway.

Glad to see Shirley is back from her trip. 

Thanks for asking about me.  I just don't get in here everyday.  I came in here this early hoping to see some news about Jeanne Lee.   

Hopefully,  will get back later today.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Joy

Good morning Everyfriend!  After a fitful night (Mickey had a case of the "I need outs") I hit the floor running this morning.  I forgot to make dog food last night so had to do that this morning.  It's all finished and ready for the next few days. 

I'll be off to Wally World today but I'm not going anywhere this weekend if the weather is a bad as predicted.  It's been raining all night and doesn't show signs of stopping.  If the past is any indication, we'll be swamped at WM today.  Everyone will be stocking up for the weekend.  All you have to say is "bad weather" around here and everyone hits the grocery stores and the video games.

Stay warm, stay healthy, stay happy and maybe you should also STAY HOME!

Jane, you probably will get the weather we are having now.  Yesterday we were in the 50s and temps started going down after dark.  At 3 am we had 31 degrees and at 7:30 am it was 25 degrees.  At 9:45 we have 23 degrees.  I do think we missed the mix of weather and we've been getting only snow.  The mix went over to Detroit and I hope it goes south of you.

The morning took a bit of a curve with the chiropractors office calling saying they had a cancellation for 8:15 would hubby like that one..YES!! Picked up milk, juice and ice cream bars and came home to stay. Very foggy out there now and temp is to drop with flash freeze warnings. We are snug as a bug and intend to stay that way. :)

Good Morning Everyone!

Cold here, but dry and sun is shinning brightly.  Sounds like a lot of you are fixing to have some really bad, nasty weather.  Made me shiver just to read about it.

Janie, we have one of the Sam's stores closing here.  Never been to it as it is a ways for me.  Haven't heard anything about any WalMart stores closing.  They are opening up a bunch of the neighborhood grocery stores here in San Antonio.  Matter of fact just opened one by our church.

Lloyd, as a readhead my hair gets blonde in my old age, but my beard, when I let it grow, is white as can be.  So be it, it is what it is.

Nothing on tap here today, going to take it easy.  Wife is back in bed.   Her cold is bothering her.  She went to doctor yesterday and she gave her some new meds.  Hopefully it will work.  I have a persistent cough.

Everyone have a good day and stay warm.

Hi Everyone. We are going to have another fairly warm but cloudy and rainy day today.  We had light rain on and off all day yesterday and today the forecast calls for 100% chance of rain at 4 pm with high chances at other times.  We can use the rain.  It will then cool off a bit for a few days.  Today the housekeeper will be here shortly.  We plan to go to the Dairy Queen for our main meal of the day.  They have very good hamburgers and of course ice cream.  That is all that is planned for today.  So I will just be taking things easy today.

Gloria, glad you are having a respite from the very cold weather.  I am surprised that the schools weren't prepared for the very cold weather with regard to the water pipes.  Surely it has been very cold in your area before.  I think there were a few broken pipes in this area but didn't hear of many. I shared your info with Pat about your experience with the orthopedic back doctor.  Thanks for providing some humor. 

Joy, always nice to see your posting.  Time is going by so quickly that I can't keep track whether I have seen a posting from someone for a day or two but if no postings in several days I hopefully do become aware of it. 

Lloyd and Jane, the article I saw indicated it was only the Sam's Clubs that would be closing stores.  I can't image them closing any of the Walmart stores as their parking lots are always full. 

Amy, I am going to have to get busy and coordinate with Bubble to see what I need to be doing.  At least I can be a backup for Bubble here.  I will contact the Webmaster to see if there is anything else I need to do.  It has been a number of years since I did any of this web type work so have to relearn but hopefully am still teachable.

Hal, that sounds like a nice place for the Bible Study.  That must be a big Church if it has a buffet.  I bet Steve was disappointed in not getting out the hospital today.  Sure glad he is getting better. 

Jane, happy for you to get a raise and a bonus.  If companies can make more money they can pay their employees better.  It sounds like just what you need for your insulation fund.  It sounds like a good plan to stay in over the weekend and avoid any icy roads.  You sure don't need to be breaking any bones by falling on the ice nor does anyone else here. 

Lloyd, I have been gray headed since I was in my mid-30's and it is now white and mostly gone.   

Shirley, you are a hardy soul to go out camping in January.  Glad you are safely home. 

June, nice to see you were able to get out for those three walks.

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.

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 -

Hal, I think the flooding site problems..and other building sites are many times the fault of the folks that want their home built on what they think is a beautiful view and great privacy, and no traffic, etc., etc. New lot sites should be closely investigated for all sorts of weather hazards before deciding where to build. I have seen pictures of homes built where half the home is over a canyon, supported on lengthy stilts, but NO neighbors to be bothered with, but a GLORIOUS view, then a serious fire, earthquake, flooding comes along and their home is kindling.

Janie, sweetie, there is no place like home…..in my opinion, at my age. I love the peace, familiar areas, a bed nearby, no alarm clocks, lots of good friends as close as a button on an instrument of one kind or another. It's a good life. Never "bored". God would frown on boredom.

Gloria, I see  those same guys in my apt….. John. A few minutes later, Charley Horse comes along.When he leaves, Arthur-itis shows up and finally I'm so tired, I go to bed with Ben Gay. The names may change a bit at times, but they are all still in attendance.

My house keeper was in this morning and slicked everything up. She had to work around some wiring, but I guess she is used to that.I have an elec. powered breathing machine…..one wire plugs into the wall the other into the machine and I sit and puff on albuterol for 15 minutes twice a day. I purposely skipped this morning, but may use it tonight….my choice. I also plan to cut back the special cough syrup…a new brand that works wonders, but I don't want to depend on any of this stuff if I don't have to. They were needed at the time.

Larry, I know Bubble will appreciate greatly your being a partner with her in this work you will be doing. I thank you Larry. You will do very well, I know, and it is great having two in command…..thank you my dear friend.


Time for me to go down for lunch, then home for another very welcome nap. So many things I should be taking care of, but the nap rules my hours. See you later kids. I love you all. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Well, this day is ending and I'm thankful.  It had it's moments both good and bad.  I went out in time to go to work a bit early so I could stop by Automotive and make an appointment to get a battery in the car this afternoon.  The car had other ideas!  It decidd not to start!  So I prevailed upon my good neighbors and Steve put on his jacket and slippers and took me to work.  I hadn't even made it to break when Cheri (Steve's wife) texted to say she'd pick me up after work and take me home.  Not "do you want me to pick you up".  Just, ""ll be there at one to pick you up".  My daughter says I lucke out when they moved in across the street.  I think I'll adopt them!

Then my son picked up TLH at the bus and dropped her off here and she stayed for supper.  This gave her mom a little "me" time when she got home from work.  That was the good part.

Tomorrow, we'll get the car started and I'll go up to WM and get a new battery and then it better not give me any hassles!

That was beautiful, Amy, any time!!! 

Thanks for the welcome home, everyone..... even with so many things going crazy it was a good few days, proved that I am not as fragile as I was starting to think, my worst enemy is "thinking".   :crazy2:   

Carol, the whole door was frozen from the rain that came before the freezing temps... & more freezing rain.  Today I needed to plug into my garage power & the door was frozen again so I got the hair dryer out & plugged into the cord from the garage & only took seconds to get it open.  I'll put that extension cord back in before the next trip!  I had not used it in the 3 & 1/2 years of owning this 4-Winds but used to use it (with the Rialta) in MO to have various appliances on the picnic table, usually when we had visitors.  Live & learn, huh?  "Don is out blowing the droppings from a mesquite tree.  Wonderful looking tree - too messy for too many months", the sweet gum tree in my front yard is worse.... dealt with curling leaves in spring & all fall have to pick up those spike ball that can trip one when walking across the grass, more fall every day. 

My friend here in town laughs at all the problems I create for myself... she doesn't want to travel at all so no RV problems, no pets so feeding or animals getting car sick problems.... she has plenty to laugh about.  ::)  Ah, life is good as long as you enjoy what you have and don't dwell on what you can't do or have, right?

Larry, so grateful you will help Bubble for now.  It is quite a chore to keep everything running, I sure don't have the smarts to help, would if I could. 

We are supposed to have one day above freezing (Sunday) & back to real winter all next week.  A chance of snow on Monday but since it's been a long time with no snow, I won't hold my breath.  One thing for sure, we have had enough cold weather to get rid of the pesky bugs of summer. :thumbup:

Joy, my daughter plans to drive to Wichita on Monday for her birthday & mine.... she was going to bake the chocolate cake my mother nearly always had on the table, ready to serve to anyone that stopped by.  Ever bake the one that used real cocoa, half a cup of cold coffee & pour a cup of boiling water over all before stirring fast & popping into the pan & oven?   I think it was a coast to coast recipe during the early '50s & I still bake it for friends & neighbors when a death in the family.... and it will always be my mother's grandchildren's favorite cake!  I talked my daughter into waiting until she got here & we'd bake it together.  Your cooking spree inspired me.   

Jane, one good thing about Walmart batteries, they don't hesitate replacing if you happen to get one that doesn't hold up to it's warranty.  I agree with your daughter about being lucky to have such good neighbors... but my mother always said, "you have to BE one to HAVE one!"

Another day has passed and coming to an end.  I have been coughing my head off all day and feel absolutely exhausted.  My youngest daughter in Del Rio called a local restaurant and had a bowl of chicken noodle soup and dessert sent to the house.  God only knows how much she spent on that.  But it was good and hit the spot.  I should say a bowl for Mom and Dad.....

Tisie, that cold front you wre speaking of is due here Tuesday and the weather guessers are say "possible" freezing rain or snow or both and cold, cold, temps Tuesday suppose to stay in the 30's all day. 

Anyoldhow, I am off to bed and hopefully a good nights sleep.

Nite, nite, God Bless and Sweet Dreams

A good late evening HELLO to EVERYFRIEND!

CAROL, the deputy that was hurt the worse was moved from ICU yesterday, which is of course a good sign, but he still has quite a long recovery time down the road, and it is unknown if he will ever be able to work again.  He was hit while trying to help pull Deputy Parrish out and the bullets travel around in him and caused a lot of serious damage.  His father is the Boulder County Sheriff.  The other two deputies were not severely hurt, and were released from the hospital a day or so later.  One of these two is a lady who broke out a window in the apartment so she could jump to safety. How she avoided serious injuries is nothing short of a miracle.

Our oldest son from Boston flew in last night and stayed over night with us.  We had a couple of hours to chat this morning before he had to head out.  He does a yearly guys ski trip at his mountain home in Vail.  There will only be four of them this year, so that is a much easier group than they normally have.  Thank goodness the mountains have been getting snow and it will be a good ski weekend.  Colorado is very low in measurable precipitation, causing some real concerns if things do not turn around soon.  Kurt just texted me to say they are safely in Vail after a LONG 5 hour drive....roads were snow packed and way too many people trying to get up there! 

HAL, happy to read that Steve continues to do well, but sorry he was not able to go home today.  I feel bad for you with your terrible cough....it can and does really wear you down!

LARRY, I have been trying to find out if there has been any of the mud slides or flooding in Mark’s area, and to my knowledge there has not been.  Thank you for asking. 

Good luck getting the car in to get the new battery tomorrow, JANE.  I for one feel very thankful that you have the nice neighbors that help you out. 

GLORIA, thank you for sharing the story that you shared....I have first had experience with a few of “those guys” too! 

AMY, thank you for sharing the nice video.  I am going to go and enjoy it again. 

It is late and I need to get to bed.

Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

Good morning  everyone...

We were lucky, we didn't get the amount of snow the weather guessers were calling for. Woke to maybe 2 inches of new snow with a temp of -7° . Wood box needs filling again and laundry to do today ,general cleaning and I would like to start another quilt.

Better get a move on..

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning Everyfriend!  As predicted, the rain changed to snow sometime during the night.  So far, I don't think there's much more than an inch on the ground but it's still coming down and the wind is blowing so there could be deeper snow in some places than others.  Thank goodness, the condition of the car makes it not only a good idea but necessary to stay home.  The snow is supposed to stop sometime around noon and that's when my son closes his store.  I think he's planning to try to get me to WM to get a battery sometime this afternoon.  I'm going to call and make sure they are open and that they have what I need before I even attempt to get there.  It can wait until Monday if necessary.

I don't have to worry about my daughter trying to get to me either.  She's picked up a bug and is recuperating at home.  We've been in touch but we're not into sharing bugs.

Amy, I loved the video also.  Sat back and watched and listened until it ended.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm formulating a casserole in my mind from things in the fridge.  So far I have cooked beef from a left over roast, spaghetti sauce, noodles and cheese.  Anyone have another idea I can throw in.  I've got all the proper spices to jazz it up a bit.  Maybe I'll chop up a green pepper and throw in a bit of garlic and onion. 

We're waiting out the "boinger" for the doggies pills right now and I think the sun has risen while I was typing.  Make today a good one!

Hi Everyone. After a day of rain and now a night that got down to 31 we are expecting it to get to 50 this afternoon with sun all day.  After two days of cloudy weather the sun will be welcome.  We did go out to Dairy Queen for their $5 lunch special yesterday.  I plan on attending a meeting this morning and making a quick stop at Aldi's and then late this afternoon will likely watch the football games.  They don't start until about 4:30.

Carol, hard to beat those 2 for 1 coupons.  One reason we often eat at Ruby Tuesdays is their coupon offers.  I also clip the Arby's coupons as often get a sandwich there.  At one of the restaurants we go to the wait staff use what looks like cellphones to place the order.  I am sure they are specialty devices that just look like cellphones in size. 

June, I have never been able to understand why people place homes in areas where they know there is high risk of natural disasters or where there are steep yards. 

Amy, it sounds like this will be a good weekend to stay inside and sew. 

Jane, I hope you now have a new battery in your car today and that it gives you no more problems in starting. Good idea to check ahead to be sure they have what you need.  You do have nice neighbors and I bet he enjoys being of assistance to you. 

Shirley, no one could ever accuse you of being timid in doing what you want to do.  You are right in that life is what we make it and we can find happiness and contentment regardless of our circumstances if we decide to do you.  I don't have a handle yet on what I may need to do with this site other than create a new discussion on occasion.  I guess I will find out as the need arises.  Did you ever make a hot milk cake?  It was my grandfather's favorite and my grandmother made it often with homemade caramel frosting. 

Hal, how thoughtful of your daughter to have the soup delivered to your home.  Sorry to read that your cough is so bad and hope today finds you and your wife feeling better. 

Jenny, nice your son and his friends can enjoy the cabin in Vail.  We spent a night or two there during the summer many years ago.  Everything was basically shut down and I remember having a problem finding a place to eat.  There was also no television in the room.  It was a pretty location however.  It sounds like no news is good news regarding the mudslices in Mark's area. 

Amy, is there any problem with ice under the snow?  Hope you are able to get another quilt started.
