  • Pooch1: "Sniper" is a noun.  "Snip" is a verb.  Not funny to be unknowing of the difference in how the two words are treated.

  • Pooch1: 3rd graders learn to double a final consonant preceded by a single vowel before adding 'ing.'  Snipping refers to cutting remarks.  A snipe is a bird.

Jenny,  I add my sympathy and prayers for your situation.  Gentle hugs to you and Bob as you wend your way home.  I hope Michelle is better by the time you get there - and that she is able to enjoy the 4th of July celebration.

Weather gurus say it's going to be a "noisy night" - with storms arriving locally about 2:00 a.m.  Guess I'll head for bed and hope I'm not too rudely awakened.

Sleep well, Everyfriend, and have pleasant dreams.

JENNY, my thoughts and prayers are with you.  You have so much to deal with.  And it looks like your hands are tied in more ways than one.  As Shirley said, your frustration has to be overwhelming!  Don't worry about venting!  That's part of being a "family" like this one!

I got some cleaning done after the doggie baths and my haircut.  A couple of neglected areas look pretty good now.  And the last of the laundry is in the dryer and that's where it will stay to wait for me to remember it's there.  All the towels are clean for my weekend guests (daughter for sure and maybe granddaughter).  Christy will be finishing up the yard work.  It looks better than it has since I moved in. 

And now I'm off to bed!  I wish you all a peaceful night and a happy tomorrow! And may God bless us, every one!

Jenny, I feel your frustration & have walked in your shoes, and like you, backed off because I knew any disagreement would break their hearts (Mom & Dad). After they were gone I was disappointed that the one in charge did not do what our parents had always said they wanted done. Even though I still get upset about it, I know it was right to bite my tongue. Hugs to you & Bob, you are showing your family how to live right, no regrets!

I have ironed a pile of clothes to try on & pick out the most comfy. Got to admit that eating those 2 boxes of Russell Stover turtles the last 2 weeks has added an inch around the middle. UGG..... My bad, MY gotta quit pigging out!  The other thing is I have been eating lunch late so don't eat "supper" until 7:30 or 8:00 and for sure, that is NOT GOOD! 

This time of year we have to have summer & winter clothes in the same day, even coats in the high country. I finally found everything I was looking for so next step is making sure I don't leave behind what I really need for the road.

We have had so much coming & going lately, with graduations, birthdays & weddings, my poor daughter spent 10 days baby sitting her 2 year old grand while parents & 2 older kids went to Disney world, home less than a week & flying to Seattle to take care of the 5 year old while parents stay with the one year old while she has the tubes put in her ears. Any surgery is always scary & no way to explain to a one year old what it's all about. She has had 9 infections in a year because of this so the doctors said there's no choice. I think it's scheduled for Friday, so prayers welcome for little Ellie.

Good night, Lloyd, you snuck in. ;)  I went to Sam's Club today & bought the big 20 oz hot cups to make hot chocolate in when camping. That is one thing I hate to wash out when camping, those mugs left with the chocolate stuck to the bottom. This trip we will throw those cups away! 

Sweet dreams to all and God Bless. Shirley

A good Tuesday evening HELLO to ALL.

Here it is nearly Wednesday already and time for us to leave my Dad and head home😢😢

The week has passed quickly and we have accomplished a lot and being with my Dad has been very rewarding for both of us.  Tomorrow morning is going to be very hard to say goodbye and head for the airport😩. Overall I think Dad is doing quite well and is getting around fine, however he is easily confused about many things.....then he seems OK and then confusion again.  If we talk about things in the past he knows EVERYTHING....just the short term stuff😢😩. So, so sad and worrisome. 

I have read the posts and enjoyed them but I apologize for not commenting on individual posts right now. 

Michele had chemo today and she is in the same condition she normally is on this day.  Bless her heart.  She will not have chemo again until the Monday after the 4th......we hope and pray she may be feeling OK to go to Vail with the family for the 4th of July. 

A couple of things have not gone as well as we had hoped while we have been here, but they are things I must just let go of for my own good, but it has been hurtful.  My brother has all the rights legally for my Dad, medically and banking.  Bob and I are here and always have been the ones for ALL the years for my Mother and Dad.  My Dad agreed after a discussion on Father's that this should be shared between my brother and I so a couple of things should be changed, but someone had to stick their nose in where it was not needed and caused an issue, so rather than pursue, Bob and I have backed off.  Bob does EVERYTHING for my Dad that requires brains and abilities, all stock and taxes, etc., but he can only do so much....legally.  He has done his best, we have done our dudiligence for care homes that would work for Dad....and reminded him he can always come to live with us, BUT it is now out of our hands.  I do know we can hold my heads high knowing that we have ALWAYS been here for them, so we should never have any regret 😢😢. Thank you all again for letting me vent🤬🤬. I am sorry😩😩

Pleasant dreams to all and you will hear from me again when I am back home in Colorado 🥰

Callie, both of our concoctions add taste to the fish.  If I have some chili sometime, I'll try yours.

Don, that didn't look like the Blue Water Bridge area in that video unless it was a very old video.  The video was interesting, nevertheless.

Patricia,  I thought "Revelstoke" sounded familiar.  Got out my album of the "Railroading Through The Rockies" tour two friends and I took in 2002.  We went by rail from Vancouver to Banff and I have several pages of pictures and printed descriptions of the area around Revelstoke.  We went through the spiral tunnels - where the front of the train exits as the end of the train is entering.
I also made a note that, at a certain point, the engineer threw a bagel out the window and a raven (that waits for the train) swooped down and caught it.
Beautiful country and fantastic trip.

Mary Ann,  going back to your mixing catsup and mayo to put on fish..... My mother added pickle relish; I didn't know Tartar Sauce came in a jar until I was away from home.    I mix mayo and chili sauce (from a bottle) to make mine.

Nothing else to comment on from my corner of the world.
