JaneS we both have a  Nicole now to brag about. hope when she gets in a few years is as good of helper to you as ours is to us. but ours is a gd not gg d Have a great day. and do not wast any time to start spoiling her.



Good morning everyone 44° already BUT tomorrow forecaster says only mid 30's for a high tomorrow. Looks like the southeast states are in for bad storms including tornadoes. Hope all our friends in the area stay safe. My older son is busy pruning his trees and pulling up some that are about dead from those gypsy moth caterpillars 2 years ago. If no crop this year  the trees will all come out and then he will just plant a bigger garden in that area. He will just keep enough trees for family to have some good apples.

LARRY  there is a drive in still open here in RI. I remember when we had a choice of them to go to. The only to enjoy a movie with little ones in those days. News this morning is not good with the strike on Syria. Glad we were not alone in that. Hate the thought of another WW. Frightening.

JOY  my son came here yesterday ready to record what the manager and her sidekick said when they came  here. They never showed up. I saw her side kick later after she had already left the building, I asked him why they did not show up, of course he had excuses-they were busy and she had to leave. I told him before they finally get here I want my 24 hour notice that they are coming. Even in the rules we have it states they will notify is 24 hours before they come. Never had that before, they just  showed up. Nice warm weather and I bet she left to get ready to go camping for the week end. She needs a witness when she inspects, I had one too ready but she left. Had to laugh though, after she left almost everyone opened their windows. That is why she evicted the one under me, her windows were open and someone must have called her because she came here on a Saturday and took a picture of it. Only time in 4 years since I have been here that she came on a Saturday.

CALLIE  we have heard about the fires out there. Seems like they are starting early this year.

JANE  hope by this morning that baby is here at last. WOW  glad that Emma Nicole finally made her appearance. Can GG relax a bit now?  Know that you are longing to hole and cuddle her. Nothing like that and the smell of a baby is there? Congratulations, I bet everyone is relieved that the birth is over and now all that is left is to see and love her. I had a sister named Emma. My daughter used to call her Auntie Em and she had not yet see the Wizard of Oz. My sister loved that.

JUNE  your back sounds like mine now. Laying down is the only time it does not hurt as much. Don't like thinking how many years it has been that way.

SHIRLEY  with all that wind I would stay inside the rest of my life I think. That poem fits all of us in here. Joan picked a good one the day she posted it. in the morning starting at 9am week days on MeTV I watch Perry Mason, Matlock and then Diagnosis Murder. Sunday night I watch Love Boat. Touched by an Angel and  then Colombo. All old favorites.

JENNY  no wonder you felt so bad. I had the shingles shot and hope I never get it. My daughter had it starting on her head and onto her forehead, She thought that it might be shingles and called the doctor and got right in, he started her on meds so it cleared up fast because she caught it early. Hope by now the meds have kicked in and you are feeling a bit better. That old bag of a witch did not show up yesterday and I was angry. My son even took the time to come here so he could be a witness to what she said, he was going to record it. By tomorrow night we might be in for freezing rain in this area.

AMY  have "fun?" with your dancing partner.

LLOYD  hard not to spoil those little grands or greatgrands.

Have a good day everyone.

"God gives us a new day each morning, We can spend it in joy, or in sorrow. We can't change what happened yesterday, and we don't know what's coming tomorrow. So as long as today, is one thing we have,  it seems like a good thing to do, to make it as nice as a day can be, For ourselves and for others too."

Hi Everyone.  We are expecting another very nice day today with it getting into the mid-80's this afternoon.  Yesterday morning we did go to the Church and meet with the lady heading up the Columbarium committee.  She explained everything to us and we choose the niche we wanted, which will be right next to the plate we are getting on which Stacey's name and birth date and death date will be recorded.  We then stopped at the Sunrise Grill for our lunch and split a huge club sandwich and each had a side of potato salad.  It was a big meal.  After we got home and I rested I installed the new router/modem I had purchased so I could stop renting one from Comcast.  It installed very easily and this stop the monthly fee for the device. 

Today I got up fairly early but after my shower and getting partly dressed I laid back down and read from my iPhone as I often do.  I plan on attending a meeting this morning but want to leave early enough to stop by the Comcast store to return the equipment I have from then which I no longer need.  I need to do a couple of chores in the kitchen like clean  and cut up some celery and grate another pound of cheese.  I also need to empty the ice bin.

Joy, hope you enjoy your dinner out with your son and DIL and the oysters are good.  Glad your inspections don't involve picky items. 

Callie, I haven't heard anything about the wild fires in NW Oklahoma.  It sounds like your area is getting all spiffied up.  Pat put her hummingbird feeder out last week and has seen several hummingbirds using it already. 

Jane, congratulations on becoming a great grandmother.  Sorry that your granddaughter had such a long and hard labor but glad mother and child are fine.  How is the Dad doing?  :)

June, glad you are able to find some comfort laying down. 

Shirley, so sorry about your buddy being in her final days.  Nice and thoughtful of you to make up some food that the family can eat while sitting the vigil. Those are long hours for the family keeping watch.  With the ME TV shows one wouldn't be concerned about the children viewing them.  I sure wouldn't want small children exposed to what is now on the network evening shows or even watching the news. 

Jenny, glad you are safely home but so sorry to hear that you have shingles as I understand they are very painful.  Glad you had a little snow. 

Amy, hope you don't have to get out in the snow since you have taken off the snow tires.  It sounds like your snow clearing may keep you busy. 

Sandy, I don't think I have ever heard of painless shingles.  However, glad if you have to have them that they are that type.  Enjoy the beauty of the snow. 

Gloria, hope your son will have a good apple crop this year.  I am just now listening to the news about the Syrian attack.  Like you sure hope it doesn't lead to another war.  Probably good that she has a witness when she inspects your apartment.  Those are all good shows that you mentioned on ME TV.  I thought I had it set to record Carol Burnett and WKRP in Cincinnati but only got one recording of each.  I will have to check to see what I did wrong. 


LARRY, the last I heard, they were still trying to get "Daddy" down off his cloud!  He's overjoyed!

I wish everyone who has a health problem a fast solution! 

I'm in the middle of laundry and putting things away...like boots, knit hats, winter shirts, winter coats.  I know, I know!  I'm probably jumping the gun a bit but they're not THAT far away!  This is a small house.  I'm going to go through closets and drawers and if I haven't worn it in two years, it's going to goodwill!  I hope.....

I was diagnosed with shingles, 
after I had taken the vaccine.     

The shingles vaccine has been proven as
the most effective method to reduce the
risk of developing shingles.

It can also reduce complications such
as long-term pain caused by shingles. 

So I assume the vaccine helped  me,  even
though I did get a milder case of shingles.   

I also took meds  from the dr,  which pretty
much made me take to my bed for about 4 weeks!! 

Shingles present differently in people  so
one never knows what symptoms one will
get ..

All I know is I hope never to get it again...
even though some people do get it more then

Shingles is never fun.


G'Afternoon to you all and a Hello to Lloyd !, sorry Lloyd, i noticed your 'green light' was on this morning, i waited but i guess you where still in the land of NOD ! and i did not like to disturb you, so ,catch you next time mate  :thumbup:, lol..
Larry.  I read your remarks about your early days with the old 'Black and White' Television, that brought back memories of what we where watching back in (i think) mid or late 1950's,
one that i remember was at that time, one of  funniest shows on our (BBC) TV, it was called 'The Amos and Andy Show' and was always a topic of laughter at work the following day !, our first TV had a 12 inch screen, a little bit different to those around today !. lol.
                                                                                            Cheers.   Roley.

Sandy, I had a mild case of shingles which in my case, was more of a rash.  However, it started in the middle of my abdomen and went to my spine on my right side.  My doctor confirmed that it was shingles.  I don't remember much, if any, pain with mine.  Jenny, I am sorry you are suffering from the shingles because, as others have said, it can be very painful.

We are expecting rain, snow and freezing rain today and tomorrow.  We were going to have a family get-together today but cancelled it and we'll try again in two weeks.

Jane, if I didn't congratulate you on the birth of your new great-grandchild, I do so now.  The only grandmother I knew was named Emma and she lived with us for seven years at the end of her life.  She died at 92 years of age.

Gloria, nice in a way that the "witch" didn't show, but it only prolongs the agony.  I hope your son is able to be with you the next time.  That might stop her in her tracks!

I hope everyone has better weather than we are having now.

Roley, one of my all time favorites that came to us on PBS was a British comedy called "Are You Being Served?"  I loved it! 

I've got my fourth load of laundry in the washer and tw more to go!  I'm making progress!

The sun is shining and it's 75º with a predicted high of 79.  SPRING HAS SPRUNG!  And we're getting the showers overnight to prove it!

Jane, with Mr Humphrey, Mrs Slocombe (sp?) and young Mr Grace?
I enjoyed it too... long ago.

An amateur theatre company has been told it cannot perform a stage version of BBC sitcom Are You Being Served? after it was deemed “demeaning to women and outdated”.



I hope they stick to their guns and show it somewhere.  I'd go!  And as for it putting women down, Mrs. Slocombe could put down any man with that LOOK of hers.

I just saw Emma on Face Time on my phone.  I want to hold her!!

Jenny:  So sorry you have Shingles.  I had the shot - later was diagnosed by a Doc in a Box - twice for shingles and it turned out to be an allergy instead.  Still uncomfortable but not as painful, I am sure. You didn't need this now.

Jane:  My grandmother was named Emma - she was born in upper Sweden. I love the name. Enjoy.  When can you get together? 

Gloria:  If only the right person would know about "the witch".  Remember, strength in numbers.

Don is making an omelet for our late breakfast.  I have been awake since 3:30 AM.  Wind, and dusty out there and we did smell smoke last night and checked outdoors a couple of times.

Bubble:  How is it that a few people can make decisions on what we read/see. or watch.  We are being herded.  Hope you are well - take care.     


I am getting ready to go out on the sunporch and read.  Suppose to be the last nice day.

Jane, congratulations, to you and the new family.  Such a pretty name.

Jenny, so sorry to hear about your problem.  I have heard how painfull shingles are.  At lest you are getting treatment.  Prays that they will heal fast.   You and your husband have had a few stressful months.  You deserve a good summer.     You need to go to one of the casinos and relax :)

Good Morning,

Still windy and now cold.   Actually glad I have Domestic Duties to catch up on.

The air over OKC began to look hazy about 5:00 p.m. yesterday - when the wind changed to the north and blew the smoke from the fires 80+ miles away in this direction.   Haven't seen a news report this morning and am hoping the change in wind direction didn't send the fires in a different direction.  Last report I heard said more than 220,000 acres have been burned.  This region is mostly ranchland but three small towns had been evacuated.

I loved the BBC sitcoms such as "Are You Being Served",  "Keeping Up Appearances" and "Last of the Summer Wine".   

There was an article in the morning paper about the way Facebook and various servers track us so they can "present" us with ads.
I did a Google search to get information about flights my son/dil are taking today. As soon as I was finished, I went to my server's homepage and there was an ad for "cheap flights" anywhere I wanted to go.   
Just did a search for BBC comedies because I couldn't remember the exact title for "....Summer Wine".
Wonder what I'll find on the homepage this time?   :tickedoff:

(EDIT)  Ha!  no ad.  Guess "they" can't figure out what I "might be interested in" this time.   :thumbup:)

Jane, when can you share Emma Nichole's picture?

Jenny, so sorry about the Shingles.  Hope they heal quickly and, as Lindancer says, you can get back to the casinos.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

A good Saturday morning.  Sunny but windy outside this morning. 

Thank you ALL for the supportive comment about my shingles.  I can not believe how common they are!  Anyone that an avoid them sure needs to! 🤪  SANDY, I was most interested in hearing how yours were  the painless kind, but I see you did go into more detail.  The spot that presented on my higher, the “wing” area part of my  back looked like a huge welt from a scratch. Bob asked me “how did you scratch your back”?  Unfortunately we did not take a picture of it because I assumed I had scratched as it itched SO badly.  I was doing any and everything I could to get relief from the itch.  Rubbing on chair backs, corner of walls, and begging Bob to PLEASE scratch.  I just felt like I had flu type symptoms, nauseous, plain wiped  out in general and the horrible pain. 

SHIRLEY, I am sorry I did not respond to your sadness regarding your friend.  So much sadness around these days.  One of my first cousins husband died while we were gone so we missed his furneral.....my neighbors mom died very unexpectedly, and a dear friend that we got to see for the last time is in the very late stages of Alzheimer’s.  Hugs to you.

GLORIA, that OLD BAG just continues to taunt you with her meanest, doesn’ she?  Now you have to wait until she gets around to you so she can come in and insult you.....oh and, it would have been great for your son to be there to record her nasty statements.  Anxious to hear if you got the antenna installed yet? 

I wish you all the best for the rest of your day.



Are we back to winter again/still? I had a nice waltz with the snowblower,shovel was stood up. :)  Snow was too heavy to move with the shovel . Poor birds are really scrounging for food...I have put feed out a couple of times for them. Even put it in a new spot under the pine tree and they found it.Weather is to stay the same for tomorrow also, I just took a look out and you wouldn't know that I cleaned the driveway....not doing it again tonight. Tomorrow is a new day.

Jenny, I saw what shingles did to my friend and that prompted me to get the shingle shot. Another friend even had them under her finger nails and said that was painful. Hope your meds work fast for you.

Shirley, prayers for your friend and you. Know this will leave a hole in your heart but there are wonderful memories that the two of you shared.

Jane, I am with Callie, when can we get a peep of this precious bundle??

Gloria, with any luck she was out looking for another job.....did she take her broom stick??? I am glad your son was with you.

Gloria de , my porch is under 3-4 inches of snow again and it is still coming down! :(

Joy, how was dinner last night?

I can't change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails
to always reach my destination.

I have to admit that I have a picture on my phone but I don't know how to get it to a place where you can see it.  They keep telling me they are going to teach me how to do that and they never do!  I think she looks like her mother did when she was born.  So does my daughter.  And that's a good start because Allison is beautiful...inside and out. 

I asked my daughter to email me the picture and then I'll ask Bubble or Larry or someone smarter than I am to post it.  Might be a while.  I'm pretty sure the new Grandma is very busy.

I don't remember if I said this, but I've had a "face time" visit with them all!  It ended with tears in my eyes!

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


Good evening.

I wrote two messages this morning and somehow,  lost both of them.  I thought I hit the  "Post" button, but neither of them ever showed up.  By that time, I just gave up.   

   I wound up baking an apple pie, as I was hungry for something good.

Amy, dinner was very nice last night.  We all had plenty to eat, and were just about able to finish our dessert.    Several flavors of ice cream and drinks are also included.  Soda, tea or coffee.   We were surprised that there was nobody waiting in line.  We were able to get a table right away.  People were still coming in when we left about 7:30.  The grounds are so plenty and we were able to get a table by the window.  Nice evening!!!

This afternoon I had been reading and got so sleepy, that I went and laid down on the bed and fell asleep.  The phone woke me up, with a man's voice asking for me.  It kind of caught me by surprise just waking up.  I had to ask twice who it was.  Turned out to be a couple that I haven't heard from for about 20 years,  He asked if they could come see me and I said "  "today??"   He came back with "No, right now. We are here right now !" .   I had to tell him that I was laying down and it wasn't a good time.  I hadn't even gotten dressed for the day.  He said it was ok... they'd try another time.

Now, I just think that is so inconsiderate of people to do something like that.  I would never think to do that to somebody.  And, they were really not real good friends when we lived near each other.  I felt bad, but it just was not a good time to have visitors.   If they had called me earlier and let me know that they were thinking about coming to see me, I would have planned my day differently.   By that time, I was wide awake and that is when I decided to make a pie.

It was a beautiful day out, and I should have been sitting outside, but it was just one of those days where I was so tired.  I have lots of days like that.  Since I don't have anyone to be responsible for, except myself,  I tend to do just what I want to do.  Or not to, as was the case today.

Have a good rest of the evening.



Joy,  you shouldn't feel bad
about not allowing people to "pop in"  with out
planning for  a visit way a head of time. 

That is just rude of them,  because no
one likes to be put in a position to say no to
people  popping in.     I would have done the
same thing.   

Of course,  I never answer my phone unless
I know who is calling.   

I wish that I had a piece of that pie !!!!   

Lloyd Hammond

Joy you are a lady after my own heart and sweet teeth. If i were close enough I would be right over for a Piece with Ice cream on it. with you wish the best for the rest of the day.



Thanks, Sandy.   I don't feel so bad now.

And, Sandy and Lloyd ,  I sure wish I could share a piece of pie with both of you.  I don't have any ice cream, but  I do have some Cool Whip, so that will be just as good.   Maybe I could sneak a little piece for both of you in "the hidey hole".   LoL




Sent pics to Bubble, now I'm on my way to bed.  Good night Everyfriend and may God be with you!
