Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

Hi Emma !

Good to see you.  it has been a long time. 

I have stopped posting here because
as I have said else where " I would rather
stay quiet and appear stupid, then open my
mouth and remove all doubt" ... 

But it is very nice to see you again.  I hope
that you are well in this day of covid and
other negatives  etc....

Good morning, Sandy! I'm happy to see your post--it's been a while!  I hope all is going well with you and that you're able to get outside in the sunshine.  We have lots of sunshine which I love, but I'm trying to stay inside most of the time.  We have the corona virus nearby (not in our neighborhood, but close!).  I do take a daily walk downhill and back up and will continue doing that until the "all clear" notice goes out from our hospital.

I hope you are feeling well and that your family is too!  Have a nice day!

Hi Sue...

Like most people today our age,  I
am  pretty much staying home and checking
out my Windows to the World which overlooks
the main street here in the city of Portland.

I feel very lucky to be able to see
so much going by which holds back
"cabin fever" setting in for me.

I am doing well.  My kids are around
to take care of my needs...  when and if I
need them. 

I am wishing everyone a good Summer,
but it doesn't look like Covid is going
away any time soon..   

So sad...

Best wishes to everyone tuning in.
Sandy

Sandy, I don't remember if I told you that we lived in Brunswick, Maine, twice while Bob was a Navy pilot.  He was gone most of the time and I pretty much raised the boys alone several years.  We all rejoiced when he came home!

Hi everybody! So glad to see this site still alive. It has been awhile since I checked. I am still in Arizona CV-19 Hot BED unfortunately. I have been at home since 13 March. I wander out in my car just to drive the neighborhood. Neighbor buys groceries for me.

I am so upset with D. Trump. At this point I really think he is in full blown senility and should retire.

Good morning, Dig and every Buddy looking in this morning.  I've been up and dressed and have had breakfast.  I'll be going outside shortly for a walk down the hill and back up.  Going down is easy, but coming back up can be tough!

I'm planning a stay inside most of the day. I'm reading a series of books about Naval heroes in the 1800's and enjoying them.  Not much else going on here this morning except for my daily walk down hill.  I go 3 long blocks to the corner and back.  Coming back up is pretty tough, but I think it's good for me.

I hope Every Buddy looking in has nice weather and a happy day!
Sue

Hi! Have a good walk up and down the block. Stay cool and safe. It is 108 degrees here so we stay inside for the most part.

Any thought on politics? I am appalled that this dang virus has turned into a political affair. It is medical .

SCFSue

I do have thoughts about politics.  I won't burden you my usual rant about Trump and his cronies, but I am very concerned about the White House and what they are doing! I am afraid that Trump will be re-elected and we'll have another 4 years of mixed messages from Trump!

I will be glad to see the end of the Trump era!

Good Monday Afternoon from the rainy
and cool rocky coast of Maine.   

It is real nice being cooler and
having some much needed rain.

I don't preach politics any longer,
but for now just expound on the need for
our country to get our government
back up and working..

IMHO, it is a tragedy that we have
fallen so far on the world stage,
if in fact we are even on the stage
any longer.   

I think that the superior court
right now is trying to keep our laws
under control and are being less
political and more logical in the
way the way that they
are voting...  I suspect
that Roberts does not want
his court to go down in history
as being a part of the down fall
of the once great United States of
America. 

Bless him for that. 

It seems to me that Trump has
lost his mind.  And what a scarey
feeling that is.   

It is one thing disagreeing
with someones politics,  but
agreeing with many that our
Presidents mental health is
in question (not for political
reasons) but for this Presidents
in ability to govern effectively . 

Boy do I wish that we had George
Bush at the helm to complain about
because compaired to Trump, he was
a gem.

The good news is that we now
have now learned what a  having
a really bad president means.

For me it is frightening,
unbelievable and close to
terrifying to realize just
how much danger a bad
head of state can really be..

It is going to be hard for
us to make our country
respected once again on
the World Stage.   
(If not impossible)


But mostly respected from
with in for the majority of
citizens who live here and
depend on decent leadership. 

opps...  I did say a lot ...

Dig, did you get off Facebook? 
We were friends once,  I thought.
but it looks like you haven't
participated for a very long time.

Hi Everyone.. 
I hope everyone stays
Covid_Free... 

love Sandy
