Larry, I was surprised myself when I saw the length of that link to the earthquakes.  I have mine bookmarked so I haven't had to hunt for the site.  With the volcano erupting in Hawaii, they have earthquakes to go along with them and the red indicates an earthquake within the past hour.  It's interesting to see where earthquakes show up, sometimes in amazing places, far away from a fault.

I remember one time, sitting at my desk at work, realizing my chair was shaking.  A man was standing in front of my desk and he could not feel the tremble.  Others in the room who were sitting down, felt it.  An eerie feeling. 

My mother used to can all fruits and vegetables as that's what was done in those days.  After she died, Dad and I canned some peaches.  We did everything right, but it was a mess and we vowed we wouldn't do that again.  And we didn't.

lWe had a nice quiet day in Stanton, high of 77, going down to 62 tonight. I attended a program on Hawaii today on the downstairs big screen. It was very interesting, I learned a lot about the island. Originally Hawaii was just a big mountain of Lava, till a bird came by a dropped a seed, which grew in the ashes, then onward and upward till it is what it is today. 

The rest of the day I did nothing but go down for lunch, home to read and nap and read and nap some more.Now it is time for a light supper at home. There is entertainment downstairs, but I have seen the pianist/singer twice before and I am not too impressed. So after I eat I will read some more. My feet need attention from my Dr. Very painful calllus on both feet, on the ball of the foot so walking is limited. I have pads, but they do not help.

Have a good night dear hearts. I close with more prayer, hugs and Love. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good evening.  It has been a eventful weather day here in the Mile High City.  We have had tornado watches out all afternoon and into this evening.  Several storms have moved through and thankfully we have not had any hail.  I am so thankful. 

Tomorrow we go for our yearly physicals.  We have spent quite a bit of time preparing our paperwork.  We have to have new scripts for every prescriptions.  Some are to different pharmacies, so we now feel we have everything covered.  I just want to get it over....I always dread going to the doctor. 

CAROL, I was quite surprised at the amount of rain we have received the past couple of days.  My fountain on the patio was cleaned out and we did not fill it, knowing these rains were coming.  There is a good 3 inches of rain water in it.  I am sure happy to see this.  The grasses have really greened up again.  Most of all I am thankful for the help the rains have given the fire fighters.  I just hope they can continue now and not just stop and let the 90’s come back again!

LARRY, we continue with great anticipation to hear the news that I have been eluding to....maybe by Friday or early next week.  We thought we would know by now, but it is coming soon.  Yesterday something else came into the picture that has us even more intrigued.  I can not wait to be able to share our news.  I can say it has to do with Mark’s job.  Bless his heart, and Mehan’s, they are trying to not let it get to them as they wait patiently.  (NOT)

I wish EVERYFRIEND a good rest of your evening. 



Good Morning Everfriend!  I know I'm intrigued and can't wait to hear the news from Denver!

Our temps have receded a bit....high 50s overnight and only into the high 70s today.  I can live with that but it's not good for morning swimming lessons for the kids!  I remember taking my kids to the pool for lessons at 9 a.m. and they were shivering but no one asked not to go.

I'll be off to work at 9:30 this morning.  Wish me short lines and happy customers!

Enjoy your day Everyfriend.  Make it a good one!

G'morning all and if you are checking in today Lloyd, hello to you too  :thumbup:.
Larry: Not hot weather Larry, it's what we call 'warm and Dry', we have not seen any blue sky all week, just a dull grey sky, with the odd  damp sea mist rolling in now and again, in
spite of the weather forecaster promising blue skies and sunshine !, lol, at least we have been spared the rough weather that has gone around the rest of the country.
I have been reading the comments in here of how hot it has been for some of you that side of the pond with,I must admit a little bit of jealousy, it would make a nice change to see a blue sky with bright sunshine for a change !, lol, with fingers crossed Larry, it might be here by this coming weekend !,  :thumbup:.

Good morning everyone...

Another beautiful day in the making here. We don't have much planned for the day, maybe change the oil in the generator and I need to do a few things in the house. If the day warms up ,which it will I want to take the dogs to the lake .Golden girl loves to swim and I will give both dogs a bath while there. One will thoroughly enjoy the water while the other won't, last time at the lake Babe came home and rolled in the dirt :tickedoff:.

Jane, I am with you on Jenny's news....gives us all something to look forward to.

Roley, good morning, tis 11° C here and will soon go up to 22+

Better get a move on here...

Enjoy your day everyone.

Peter/Roley, I agree that the sunshine and blue skies are the best but when it's accompanied by 90% humidity, it's not so nice.  That's the part that beats us down!  It just saps one's energy!

Have a lovely day, whatever part of it your celebrating.  (I don't remember where exactly you are located but I know it's "across the water".

Good morning everyone, I just realized I never got in here yesterday. Oh well I had nothing interesting to say. Just saw on TV about the hail in Denver. Hope Jenny and Carol had no damage.

AMY we did get some rain Monday hight but with the AC running I did not even hear it.

JANE  leave it to you to have something unusual happen like that mirror.

LARRY  I know how Pat feels. Even sitting here at the PC is getting harder to do and I do have a comfortable chair. 

Better get moving. Have a different CNA coming today, miss the one I usually have. Hope she is enjoy ig her vacation and the one today is OK.

Good Morning Everyone,
from the very pleasant rocky coast
of Maine.   Good day to go out,
if I were so inclined !!!

I stuck the links to Decorah Eagles and
Duluth Boat and Bridge cams at the
bottom of each of my posts..  Just in case
anyone would like to get to them.

All is well here.  Setting up for a good day.


Hi Everyone on this already hot morning and a day headed to a heat index of 105 degrees this afternoon and still a day to go before summer officially begins. Nothing particular on the schedule for today until this evening when Scott will be coming out to spend a few hours with us.  Pat is fixing ribs in the Instant Pot and will fix some of her delicious baked beans to go with some macaroni salad and perhaps a lettuce salad if anyone wants one. We have some ice cream bars in the freezer for dessert so it shouldn't be a hard meal to prepare for this evening.  The landscape people just came down the street so we will be hearing that noise all day long.  I am not complaining but am glad when they do my end of the street in the morning rather than when I am trying to take a nap in the afternoons. 

June, I hadn't heard had all of the foliage started on Hawaii.  That sounds like an interesting video you saw.  I am one of those fortunate people who have never had calluses on my feet and no problems other than blisters when when I was young.  Have you tried any of the Dr. Shoals special gel shoe inserts?  Scott is on his feet for hours and hours at work and his feet were giving him a rough time until he started using those and it made a big difference.  The problem is you have to stand on a special display that analyzes your feet and tells you which one to buy. 

Mary Ann, I also marked the earthquake site.  Poor Hawaii was dominating the pages I looked at yesterday.  I haven't checked it out for today yet.  I think Pat only canned things one time and as I recall that was some pickles she had fixed.  I think they sealed all right. 

Jenny, it sounds like the weather events kept you busy all day monitoring the situation.  Glad you and Carol missed the hail but have gotten some needed rain.  .  It sure helps to get the paperwork done before going to the doctor rather than sitting there and trying to fill out those forms.  I don't understand the need to fill out the HIPA form on every visit.  I can see doing it when you are seeing a new doctor or in a different office.  If we think that protects our medical record privacy I expect we are deluding ourselves.  I hope your medical exam today goes well. I see you have added a new mystery to keep us pondering.   

Jane, I will trade you temps for a few days if it is too cool for you being only in the 70's.  I just checked and it is already 91 degrees there and it isn't even 9:30 this morning.  Hope you got short lines today.

Peter, You mentioned getting mist from the sea and it made me wonder how close do you live to the sea? Hope you do get to see some blue skies before long.

Amy, interesting that only one of your dogs likes the water.  Obviously Babe preferred the dirt to the water.  :)  However, that must have been frustrating after just giving her a bath.

Gloria, I expect you and Pat experience similar back issues.  Fortunately, she does find comfort in her easy chair and as long as she can stay off her feet.  When she went to Costco with me the other day I suggested that if all of the electric carts were in use she could use one of the wheelchairs so she could sit down when she needed to do so.  The thought just occurred to me that I should put the transport chair we have in the truck and she could use that basically as a rollator and could sit down when needed.  I just mentioned it to her and she agreed it was worth a try.  We already have the transport chair.  I can handle the transport chair as far as getting it in and out of the car.  Hope the CNA worked out OK for you today.

Lloyd, hope that headache doesn't last all day and you can find a good Western to watch on your TV. 

Sandy, hope you enjoy a pleasant day and a good idea to add the cam links for ready reference. 

Mary Ann

Larry, Dad and I did our canning in the summer of 1942 and even though frozen foods were not available then (at least I think thedy were not), that was our one and last attempt at canning.  We could buy canned fruits and vegetables at that time and we did.  Some things I did not like canned and strawberries were in that category. 

We have rain in the vicinity, just not here, but the sky is dreary.  At 10:30 am our temp is 65 degrees and I think I saw where our temps for a week will be in the 70s.

Move over, Mary Ann, here I come!!!!  WE are a tad cooler but sun came out half an hour ago & still blistering. My SON came over this morning & we cut a truck load of mulberry trees, scrub elm & other stuff out of the berm. It really got out of hand.  I was dripping wet when we got through, sent him off with several hundred dollars he doesn't NEED but threatened to "buy him something he didn't want" if he didn't take it.  It was a bargain for me, yard guys offered to clean it out when it was bad a few years ago.... for either $500 or $600 (but I would not have helped them  ::) ).......anyway, more to do next week when he has time. 

We got less than a quarter inch of rain last night, not enough to help the dying grass & trees.  At least we did not get the big hail.

Can't remember if I posted after my appointment with cardio doctor yesterday.  I took along a photo of the tall display of oxygen cans in the Walmart (in Salida, CO), a can for them to read about contents, my report from the Lifeline screening I had done this past month.... and the report from 23& Me showing how my genes rated after that test.  I'm so healthy I'm not sure all reports are about ME, but the Dr & his nurse seemed delighted with all my reports & information (about oxygen without prescriptions). The Lifeline report says I am not at risk for osteoporosis (they do the ankle test) but I've been diagnosed with full blown osteoporosis for at least 20 years & get the full screen test every couple of years.  Never got any worse so guess the vitamins I took worked!  I do realize how lucky I am and don't hesitate to tell anyone interested that "I don't deserve to be able to move as abusive as I've been to this body all my years"............ I am grateful that after a life time of back problems and pain, no pain at all these days.  It really is a miracle, blessing, whatever one calls it, and I know it can't last forever, but I thank God all day, every day, for this moment in time.  I do enough whining about heat & things that go wrong so feel like I need to share this joy "maybe just for now", good health.

Need to go to the store & Sam's Club.... anyone out there getting cool weather.... ENJOY while you can!  We had summer before spring, looks like fall outside so "who knows what comes next"????  Hugs to all..........Love ya, Shirley

Mary Ann

Shirley, congratulations on your good health.  I do feel I have osteoporosis and I know I have osteoarthritis.  My back aches if I stand too long but 10 years ago I did not have the aches and pains.  I never thought I'd live to this age and the nicest thing the doctor said to me last month was "come back in a year"!  I can walk to the mailbox with no trouble, but I watch very carefully when I do go and I stop at the road and look both ways before I venture across the road. 

Along with that, when the sun is shining, I put on dark glasses before I go for the mail.  Usually the cat is sleeping in his bed in the living room and when I change glasses, the cat knows where I am going and that I'll let him out on the front stoop.  As I put on the glasses, Kendrick gets up and comes to the door with me.  He also knows when I come back he has to come back inside - and he's pretty good about doing that.  I don't have to say a word to him, he just knows when I put on the glasses, he can go outside.

Mary Ann


Hi All, I was so tired when I came home for work that I just chased the doggies outside, made myself some lunch and geve the doggies a snack, ate lunch and went to sleep. 

Then I come in here and read all the stuff Shirley does and I'm embarrassesd that I "can't take it any more". 

A lady was talking about her mother who was celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend and all the things she does and I remarked that I'd probably still be behind the counter at WM when I celebrate 90.  She said, "Oh probably not, that's a long way off."  When I said, "Only 7 years" her eyes fell out of her head!  After we got them safely back in place she said, "You're NOT 83 are you?"  That made me feel pretty good...still tired but pretty good!

JaneS that is good, you got a 3 year head start on me.that is good you keep on
running and I will keep on following good to have good friends on all ages near and far, age is just a number. and keeping busy keeps us going. Nancy keeps telling me to slow down sell out and quit, but do that and don't stay down here too long i have seen that happen too often. I will be 81 augest 27 th.



Mary Ann, it surprises me how much these cats do understand about our habits. I think your Kendrick would fall apart if you were not around, at least most of the time.  My Tom is more dependent on me than his sister (Tiger), and their mother seems to have found another place to call home since we don't take her on the trips.  She was here this morning for breakfast but wanted right back out the front door to go where ever she stays.  She brought another cat with her a couple days ago & seemed to want to make sure it waited for her.  She lets me pet her and purrs like happy to see me, but she is looking older and sort of ratty with her summer shedding.  I'm such a sucker for any critter...   She comes for her evening meal but last night did not show up for our walk down to the river.  Usually she loves that part of the day. 

Jane, you work rings around me any day.... I barely keep things running here and grateful when the kids have time to help get one job or another under control.  I think I would enjoy working the hours you do for the reason to be around people more, but not sure I could keep up.  You do a lot more than I do every day, seriously, you do.

Lloyd, I really do understand your need to "keep on keeping on" doing what you do.  My brother in law will be 89 or 90 next December and finally told a couple of widow ladies in their neighborhood that "this is the last summer he is going to mow their yards, he is running out of steam".  He has been taking care of their grass for years (for free) and finding taking care of their own yard and garden is wearing him out.  Last year he grew enough tomatoes they fed everyone around and I know my sister does NOT do yard or garden work.  "Hi" to Nancy for me.... I was 83 LAST January! 

Larry, sounds awful hot down your way.  I pretty much stay inside during extreme heat but can't stay awake all night like I used to do.  I did a lot of my sewing and painting when everyone was asleep and still up by 6:00 am to have breakfast on the table before kids went to school and Cas to work.  I never needed a lot of sleep but can't catch up these days.  I don't have any trouble falling to sleep or even laying awake if something wakes me during the night.  Silly, but I discovered I can repeat a simple prayer (like Guardian Angel, etc) & concentrate on each word... over & over & maybe a few minutes I am gone (so Fitbit tells me).  The Fitbit did wonders for letting me know about my sleep habits & best watch I ever had. 

I missed a meal so better go fix something to eat & go down to the river..... the fish expect me!

June Drabek

Really, I am not here. My brain is sound asleep and my body is saying "lay down". But i'm just too ornery to obey.

My day started at 6 a.m. with a medicine  wake up, then a nice warm shower and shampoo, exercises, prayer time, a light breakfast, then down for Bible stludy. Lunch time then on to our program of Hula dancers. It was packed, so I sat off to the side and enjoyed, and as the program progressed one of the dancers came over and had me stand by my cart, and follow her body and hand movements.....delightful ! a new tune started and a different dancer came over and had me follow her movements.  I loved it !!!!!!! Did you now that Aloha means Love ? also Aloha nui means very much love. Tomorrow we are having an Hawaiian luncheon and musical show out on the quad.They have set up a stage in the center of the garden and there must be a hundred or more chairs arranged the outside of the card on the cement walkway.

I came home worn out so slept a good portion of the late afternoon.....had a light supper at home and will soon be off to bed and book. Tomorrow will be another busy day.

Keep well and happy dear hearts.....Love, Hugs and Prayers, June

As long as we are here, let's dance.


Shirley,  I just had to comment on your great health report.  I know you and I are the same age, but, you run circles around me.   I have several health problems, but try to keep going as much as I can.  I have always been a night owl,  and never required a lot of sleep, but it sure is catching up on me now.  I just can never feel rested.  And, when I sleep during the day,  I got to sleep at night and might sleep for an hour, and then I am wide awake the rest of the night. Just awful !!! Plus, I have such little energy.  Takes me forever to get anything done.  But, I am glad that I am doing as good as I am.  I feel blessed, but have a hard time realizing that I am getting old.  LOL

But, congratulations and just keep doing whatever it is, that you are doing !!!!!



Good morning Everyfriend!  I'm up and attem this morning.  I think I have an appointment to get the a/c in the car fixed....again.  I had an appt. two weeks ago and they called it off because they thought the new (used) part was defective.  I'm glad of that.  I hope today goes well.  But I'll be home with no car.  They will bring me back home and then bring the car and I'll take the guy back to the shop.

Aside for that, I haven't decided what I want to do with the day.  Probable do some laundry and put some things back in place.  Maybe a little cleaning.  I might just go out and sit in a tree!  Oh no!  I won't climb the tree.  I have a chair that hangs in the tree.  It's very comforting to sit there and think...until I fall asleep. 

JOY, I've always been a bit of a night owl, too.  Some of my best work is done between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.  And I never had any trouble sleeping at night.  Now, if I have a night when I sleep through, I consider it a bit of a miracle!  And I've been known to stay up indefinitely to finish a good book!  Even when we were kids, my sister and I would stay up to listen to the radio.  Many summer nights we heard the National Anthem as the radio station signed off for the night.  They don't do that any more, do they!

JUNE, it sounds like you are having a fun week at your place.  I know you enjoyed the dancing...especially your own participation.  No wonder you were tired! 

I'm off to do my crossword puzzle and then get dressed.  Enjoy your day everyfriend!

Good morning everyone..

I am also up but not attem...my brain said get up but my body said NO!
We took the dogs to the lake yesterday,Golden Girl loves the water but the one Babe needed some coaxing. We didn't stay long just long enough to bath the two dogs. Worked around home in the garden planting more multiplier onions and putting sheep  fertilizer on. Jane the radisihes are doing great and since they are a fast grower it won't be long till we have fried radishes.

Joy, we are all in the same boat as you age isn't kind at times but it sure beats the alternative. :thumbup: Hope you have better days ahead.

June, way to go!!! You shake that bootie every chance you get......good for you!!! Your luncheon sound interesting, waiting to hear what your menu consists of today.

Shirley ,you are blessed with good health.Like you, I can't take the heat any more. Used to be out all the time in it working with my hubby  but not anymore.

Gloria, yesterday we had cooler temps plus there was a nice breeze blowing..humidity was low also. I was surprised that the lake water was not freezing cold as I was in up to my hips.

Larry, what a delicious meal you had, love ribs and baked beans.We will soon be hearing road noise as the highway is being re-done...I hope it doesn't take too long to do.

Better get attem,if I can find attem :)

Enjoy your day everyone..

good Morning everyone. it is 66º here now. and shooting for high of 70º and saying possible rain showers on and off. it is partly Sunny now. Have a great day everyone.



Hi Everyone.  It is going to be another very hot day.  I have already watered my lawn this morning.  I had thought I had set it to automatic but obviously hadn't so I had to manually set it this morning.  My main activity will be to pick up my friend and we will go to coffee for an hour.  I don't have any other errands to take care of this morning.  I think we may go out to eat for our main meal today but it will depend on how Pat is feeling this morning.  Scott was out for awhile but was so weary from working extra long hours that he didn't stay very long after our dinner.  The ribs and the rest of the meal were very tasty.  It was just the three of us for dinner.  We did get to speak to the youngest and the oldest of our great grandchildren on the phone. 

Mary Ann, my mother mostly made strawberry jam with the excess berries from her large strawberry patch in the garden.  We ate a lot of fresh strawberries in season and she may have frozen some as we had a deep freeze while I was still at home.  We had about a two minute, if that, little shower yesterday afternoon from one of those popup showers.  You certainly have Kendrick trained to react to your actions.  Our cat pretty much refused such training. 

Jane, you must have had long lines yesterday.  I don't think there are many of us could do what either you or Shirley or Amy seem to do everyday.  I am finding just unloading the dish water or hanging up the dried clothes to be exhausting.  I am trying to do the walking in the house that the lung doctor suggested and did do 10 minutes yesterday at one time with nitro and the oxygen and it is a boring activity even listening to an audio book but that helps. Sure glad that ladies eyes didn't roll under your check out counter yesterday.  :) I see a number of employees at Walmart who are obviously over 65 at our local store.   
Sure hope they get your A/C working today as summer is upon us and know it gets hot up your way.

Shirley,  was the clearing out you did close to your house.  Glad you missed the hail.  I am glad you are healthy and without pain and I sure hope it stays that way for you and that is joyful news. We really didn't have much of a spring down here as it was either cold or hot.  I hope the fish were happy to see you yesterday. 

June, if you were not "here" your computer is writing while you are asleep. :)  It sounds like you are enjoying the Hawaiian week and the activities.  Doing that hulu dancing must have tired you out. 

Joy, isn't it frustrating to have had a good nights sleep and still wake up tired?  Sometimes when I set up in the mornings on the side of the bed I have to almost pant before starting the morning.  Pat has never required a lot of sleep but I see that pattern changing.   

Lloyd, I was a bit worried about my dad when he left the farm at age 65 but he was always able to find enough to keep him as busy as he wanted to be without the responsibility of running the farm.  He lived to be 81 although the last couple years of his life were spent in the hospital and then the nursing home.

Amy, as I was reading your posting about bathing the dogs in the late whether you were also in the water and whether it wouldn't be cold.  If your road crews are like ours seem to be they start a project  and then leave it for awhile before continuing work on it.  The ribs were delicious and now so easy for Pat to fix.  After cooking them in the Instant Pot she puts them on a cookie sheet and puts BBQ sauce or special seasonings on them and broils them for just a few minutes.  They basically fell off the bone and were so tender last night.  It took them 27 minutes after the Instant Pot got the steam up to cook them and no constant turning and basting as she has done for many years when prepared in the oven.   


Good morning everyone 65° now but will be a possinle 80 later. Lately I have to get outside in the morning, too hot in the afternoons.

LARRY  if my rollator cannot go with me I cannot go either. I used to be able to use the shopping carts but no more. Even my walks outside are getting shorter.

SHIRLEY  I was always healthy until 6 or 7 years ago when my back got to me. Other than that I am still healthy.

AMY  now you made me jealous, going swimming. Have not done that in more years than I can remember.

Better get moving CNA will be here soon and I am still in my robe and nighty.

Larry, I don't think I can take credit for training Kendrick; he has learned by observation that when I put on my dark glasses he can go out on the front stoop.  He doesn't always want to come in but he usually does OK.  The funny thing (to me) is when he balks at coming inside, I will put the broom up against the window of the storm door and he's ready to come in then.  I have never used the broom on him, but he knows what it means.  He also knows when it's 10 pm because he comes to me as if to tell me it is time to refill his food dish and water dish.  The main thing I have trained him is when I come into the house late and shout NO, he knows he cannot go out on the stoop.  That is when he takes off if we don't catch him (that he learned on his own!). 

At 9:45 am it is 70 degrees.  Tom went out for breakfast and when he came back, he said it is very nice out.  It is Thursday and lawncare day so I will leave the doors closed until they're finished because those mowers are a bit noisy.

G'day All.
            Well, at last the 'blue sky and sunshine' has arrived, the temperature has moved upwards and it now in the low 20's C again, our local forecasters are saying it should reach 28c early next week !,for us, that is hot, with a bit of humidity, nothing like the humidity that JaneS spoke of, thank goodness !, if it does touch the 28c mark it will only last 2/3 days, then finish with a almighty thunder storm !, for Larry, we are just a mile inland from the English Channel, on the edge of the 'South Downs National Park' in the county of Sussex and, if you are interested Larry where a couple of your 'Founding Fathers'  William Penn and Tom Paine came from.

                                                                                    Cheers.  Peter.   aka. roley.

ALOHA NUI ! That means I love you very much,  and I do. I am all dressed up for the celebration, and it will be much more, I'm sure, that this lady will be able to participate with for very long. But it is not to distant from my apt. so I can rest between periods of "makin' whoopee"l
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Jane and June, I could not open the link either.  I know there is someone, possibly Bubble, who can fix the link.  June either included too much or left something off. 

I even copied the link and put it in the search line and no luck.
