 Jeanne Lee thank you for posting an Phyllis for the drawing.
( beautiful ) Have a great day.



Thank you, Jeanne.  And, thank you, Lloyd.

Sunny and beautiful day here.  Perfect for Palm Sunday.


Checking in from Israel as we prepare for tomorrow's celebration of Passover


Hi everyone.  It is another glorious Sunday morning with the sun out and no wind.  We should get up to 77 degrees this afternoon and this will be a perfect day for the conclusion of the Master's Golf Tournament.

We had a most pleasant and unexpected surprise late yesterday afternoon.  We have a step-grandson whom we hadn't seen for more than 7 years.  Our granddaughter arranged for he, his wife and two young boys (9 years and 9 months) to come over and see us.  We had a nice visit and then went to Pizza Hut for dinner with them.  They are coming back over sometimes this morning.  I have a commitment to bring the devotional at Sunday School this morning so will go to Sunday School but not stay for church so I can be here with them as long as possible.  The little nine month old is a pure bundle of energy and is crawling and pulling up and is very strong and heavy.  He kept us all entertained.

Hal, Mickelson appears to be out of the top competition but Jordan Speith certainly is in contention only two shots back. This is his fourth Masters and he has one win and two seconds.  There are several in contention so it should be a good day for watching the finish of the competition. 

June, how many Easter eggs did you find?  Glad you enjoyed seeing the children hunt the eggs and the scrumptious luncheon provided. 

Hal you were welcome to the winds as we were tired of them.

Shirley, we shred the cheese as Pat feels it is fresher that way.  We have an electric shredder that works like a charm.  We get some very good cheese at Costco, both cheddar and Parmesan that grates very well.  Really the only work is cutting the block of cheese out of the packaging, which is no easy task, and then cutting into strips that will fit the tube to guide the cheese into the shredder. The grater comes all apart and is safe for the dishwasher, which makes cleanup very easy compared to the hold hand held grater.  We have used the pre-shredded cheese in the past and like the Mexican blend. 

Callie and JaneS, I have always liked those types of salads whether green stuff or any other color.  They usually call for a second helping.

JaneS, it is your home so you should have your furniture as you want it.  My grandmother was always moving her furniture around two or three times a year. 

Amy, it has been our experience that once we get furniture placed it usually stays there. 

Jeanne and Phyllis, thanks for getting our new week off on the right note. 

Hal, is there a lot of work to be done in preparation for the Passover meal?


Good Morning Everyone,
Getting ready for church,so not a lot to post.

Larry I think you last question was for Don.  About passover meal


Good Morning,

Re:  fruit salad.....I can't always find apricot pie filling and it's a bit tart for some tastes.  Peach pie filling is a very good substitute.

Today's worship service will be a Lenten Cantata with choir and orchestra. 

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere and Enjoyable and Blessed Day.


LARRY  glad you had a good trip to meet your friends. I only have to go out away from home for a few hours and am happy to get home and lay on the couch for half an hour. I often wonder what my parents would think of what we have these days. I know TV was a great thing for them when they first got one. I have heard/read that if you freeze the block of cheese it is easier to shred.

MARY ANN  that item about Grandma I got from an email I get and it had pictures with it but could not post the pictures here. I know I sent it to several family members.

HAL  I feel like you, I am more than a year older than you and come what may I am ready.

JUNE  I would sit in my window to watch the Eggstravaganza unless I had a comfortable seat in the shade.

SHIRLEY  when I read that Grandma's email I loved it and knew I had to copy it. Do you know the bags of shredded cheese have -I think it is cornstarch- covering the cheese so it does not clump?

CALLIE  both of your salads sound great. I am going to copy both. Thanks for posting them here. I think even I can make both of them.

JANE  I would love to rearrange the furniture in this room. The day I moved in my grandson put the PC here in this corner and I would love to have it on the opposite side of the room. I would need Cox came to get the wiring put in for that side. Would like my couch at this wall. Yikes Palm Sunday crept up on me. Thanks Jane for waking me up. Next Sunday is Easter already. Guess because the weather has been so terrible with cold and rain I never gave it a thought.

AMY  never had a crow wake me but did have a Mocking bird wake me in the middle of the night when we had a full moon. I woke thinking it was almost time to get up and listened to all the bird calls till I realized they were all coming from the same direction. I finally looked at the clock and it was 2AM.

JEANNE LEE  thanks for the new page.

PHYLLIS  love your graphic for this week. Simple and so appropriate.

DON I know you and Bubble will enjoy the celebration of Passover.

LARRY  wonderful you got to see you step grandson and family. I envy you seeing them. I used to move furniture around at least once a month. That way I knew everything in back of it was clean, even the corners.

A good Palm Sunday to all.  I can not believe Easter is next Sunday. 

We will be returning to Austin this coming Friday to doggie sit for our son and dil as they head to Japan for a vacation.  That means we will not be with family for Easter.  It will certainly seem strange. 

I received the following from a cousin, and thought some of you might get a chuckle out of it. 


I JUST discovered my age group!  I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)

I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50-60 years later.

I don't have to go to school or work

I get an allowance every month.

I have my own pad.

I don't have a curfew.

I have a driver's license and my own car.

I have ID that gets me into bars and the wine store.  I like the wine store best.

The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant, they aren’t scared of anything, they have been blessed to live this long, why be scared?

And I don't have acne.

Life is Good!  Also, you will feel much more intelligent after reading this, if you are a Seenager.

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much.

People do not decline mentally with age; it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains.

Scientists believe this also makes you hard of hearing as it puts pressure on your inner ear.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for.  It is NOT a memory problem; it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise.




June Drabek

Good Sunday morning dear hearts. I have followed through on all my schedule, massage, readings, and breakfast. Now I can greet you all before I get dressed for Church.

Amy, my balloon dog Blue, still resides on my bookcase overseeing all I do. And now you have adopted another responsibility ….Mr. Crow. And they can be very demanding in a raucous manner. What does he get for breakfast ??

Good Morning LLoyd. Salads are not that fattening my friend, so enjoy Nancy's creations.

Jeanne Lee, Thank you for a new week of friendship, and Phyllis, thank you for the very expressive Palm Sunday greeting. Jesus is starting his trip to the Cross.

Don, Good Morning to you and Bubble !

Larry,have a great day with your Grandson and his family, I recall how much you care for him. I did not gather any Easter eggs Larry, I don't get around too well with my cart, so I enjoyed watching the little ones, and their parents.

Gloria, like you, once I get through with Church I too have to come home and lay or recline for a while till it is time to go for lunch. I'm just glad we can still get out and about. The eight days I spent in the care facility was a good lesson, to slow down and rest, then enjoy a bit, then more rest.

Time to get dressed now and off to the Chapel. See you all later.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good Sunday Morning Everyone... 

I am looking forward to the Masters Finale this afternoon (hopefully) ....  They also will be doing a spot on the late Great Arnold Palmer,  which I will try to watch, but it really gets to me.     There has always been Arnold Palmer,  and now he is no more... 

So Sad... 

But I am looking forward to the final game of the Masters.     

Have a good day,  Everyone!

I agree with those of you who commented that "it's my house and I should have it arranged as I like it."  You are 100% right about that.  However, I was pretty sick and hospitalized when they did it and they shampooed the carpet and bought me a new recliner and rearranged room for it.  I'd been wanting one but had not yet figured how to fit it in.  But they thought I needed it during my recuperation period and they did it.  They were also taking turns staying at my house to take care of the doggies and I was grateful for that.  I didn't want to hurt any feelings so I lived with it.  Yesterday, I thought it was time to "express myself" and have it the way I want it.  I'm sure they'll be considerate and keep their thoughts to themselves and that's fine with me.

Callie, I just replenished my ingredients for "Helen's Green Stuff" and I got a text from Cathy (my daughter) inviting me for Easter Dinner.

Jane, if any length of time has passed since your room was rearranged, I think others would not mind if you changed it.  After all, that is our right as home owners to change the locations of things.  I would if I had the strength and there is no one else to do it.  Besides that, I don't have a lot of room to move things to - just one side of the room or the other.

Jenny, I enjoyed the piece your cousin sent.  So true.

We are having a beautiful sunny day and it is hard to believe my thermometer which reads over 70 degrees.  After having 25 degrees a few days ago, I'm loving it.  Neither Dot nor I wore coats to church this morning.

Grand Haven is pretty today - sunny - and people are flying kites.

Mary Ann


Wow MaryAnn!

They are kite surfing in Grand Rapids.     What FUN!!!

Mary Ann, I scraped ice off my windshield before church this morning and right now it's 65º!  I have the door open and the screen up for the doggies to go in and out.  They've been out more than in since I got home from church and the grocery store.

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


Sandy,  that really does look like fun !   And, a perfect day for it, also.   I wouldn't have been one to try it when I was a lot younger, but I am sure my boys would have loved it.   I liked the water, and wasn't afraid of it, but just didn't go in for that kind of water sports. I was just as happy to paddle around on my raft. 


Mary Ann

I'm afraid I would not be one of those wind surfers, even when young.  But there are a lot of them.  The wind must be just right for those young men to be doing that.  At first, I thought they would be on shore, holding on to a rope, not out on the water.  Heck, when I was that young, I doubt they had such toys.

Mary Ann

June Drabek

Mary Ann, a lot of things have changed since we were young. The nice thing about being in our nineties is we have good excuse to sit back and watch the younger generation do their thing, and just live it through them. We did not have all the "toys" that are made now, we invented our own.

Had a good lunch, so now it is time for that afternoon siesta.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


I finished my chat with Natalie and she thanked you all again for you nice comments about her Fellowship.  This week's chat was about spirituality and how it helps Senior Citizens.  I was able to make some good comments partly based on some of our discussion in here. 

Callie, I told her about the pinl/green stuff discussion and she loved it.  "Helen" is her other grandmother. 

I have some Mahi Mahi filets marinating and I'm going to bake them to perfection later for my supper tonight and a couple times this weeK.  Buttered potatoes and green beans will go with them.  Leftovers in the hidey hole later!

Janie, Your supper sounds deeeeeelicious.  Mine won't compare in delectability, but I did have a big tasty lunch so it will be a light supper.

Had a nice long nap again, but still not ready to go out makin' whoopee....I'm tired. And this body is content to just stay home and enjoy my computer or book or take a stroll around the hallway. I am not a t.v. person so don't watch much of that unless it is breaking news on Fox. Always good to hear of NO disasters.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Was a beautiful day, I sat on the sun porch all day visiting or reading, just came in here to see all the post.

Callie, I have been making the jello salad for years, it is what I take to covered dish dinners.  My son when he was young would ask me to make jello junk I use to put it in a dish called a Penguin it kept it cool

Phyllis and Jeanne thanks for starting our day
Larry, and Jane, I use to change the bedroom and living room furniture every Spring and fall

GloriaDe...In my old house, I changed the bedroom Spring and Fall.  There was a nice little alcove under the windows and between the closets.  I liked the bed under the windows but since we didn't have central a/c in that house, we had a window mount a/c.  I just couldn't sleep right under the a/c so I moved the bed to the other side of the room for the summer and then back again in the fall.

Leftovers are in the hidey hole.  Supper was (in June's words) deeeeeeelicious and I'll enjoy it just as much tomorrow.

TV is BAD!  I can't find anything good to watch so I'm going to play some computer games for a while.  Enjoy the rest of your day, Everyfriend!

Janie, I made myself go out for a walk around the hallways, then did a few minutes of exercise on one of the machines they have moved to our Lobby up stairs.repairs being made downstairs. Some one set the machine to work too hard so I didn't spend more that a few minutes on it.

Gosh, I wish we could have some news on our Bis. I keep telling myself to look positive, which we all do, but that doesn't take away the missing of her messages to us.

Jenny, have you seen anything new posted about Bis  ??????

My Mom always made a furniture change Spring and Fall, and when I married, I started to do the same and my husband threw a fit. I guess his Mom never did that, so I ceased too. Now I'm too old to move anything that isn't on wheels.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Phil used to tell me that he was never sure he was in the right house after I spent the day cleaning and moving things.  But the fact that they were moved never bothered him.  He ust liked to tease me.  As long as his chair was where he could see the TV he was fine with wherever other furniture was..

I'm finished playing games and I did a couple of other things that I needed to do on the computer and now I'm going to find something else to do.  Maybe I'll have some ice cream.  Anyone want to join me?

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast

June Drabek

Janie, I have had some cheese and crackers for supper and now sipping on a chocolate Ensure, but there is always room for some ice cream.  I will take one more walk in the hall way, then I think it will be time to prepare for bed and book.
I pray you and all our dear friends here in the Soda Shoppe have a peaceful night, and a happy healthful tomorrow. I love you all very much. God be with you this night.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good night Everyfriend and you too, Joanie wherever you are.  May God watch over us all through the coming night.

JUNE, I watch for a update everyday on Face Book, and sure wish I had some good news to share. 

Today is my dad's 93rd Birthday.  There was a BBQ in his and Diane's honor  today, hosted by Diane's Family.  Yesterday was her birthday.  Of course I wish I were there, but will go down again to see him soon.  My brother and his wife were there last week with him. 

I used to move furniture around nearly every Friday when I cleaned.  My husband would comment on it, but never complained.  To me it was the only thing to do as I cleaned. 

We spent a rather leisurely day watch The Masters.   

I roasted a pork loin, made mashed potatoes and had wilted Spinach.  It tasted pretty good. 

LARRY, I was happy for you and Pat to have the surprise visit from your grandson and his family.  I hope you all had another wonderful visit today.

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND.



Good morning everyone..

Looks like a nice day in the making here. Taking hubby to a Dr appointment today and both dogs will go with us. They love the ride and the treats too if we stop for lunch,knowing we always bring something out for them.
Yesterday was a lazy day,I even tucked in a long nap too!I did manage to throw a pot of soup on the stove to cook though.

Jenny, Happy Birthday to your Dad....my Dad's birthday was on the 6th and he would have been 103!!

Better get a move on.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning Everyfriend!  We slept until we woke up today and that was about 6:45.  The doggies have been out after I went out first to check for skunks.  Every since they found one inside the fence, I precede them to check.  This morning there was evidence that one had been around.  I'm hoping it just means that someone else surprised it.  But I did a much more thorough check than I usually do.

They are back in now and ready for breakfast.  I hope you all have a lovely day and I'll check back to see what you've been up to.
