Good Morning Everyfriend!  Happy First of July to all!  And thank you BUBBLE for a nice, clean house to enjoy it. 

Today is going to be another scorcher!  Yesterday our high was 97º and it's supposed to be the same today.  I keep my A/C set at 80 and it ran most of the day yesterday.

The doggies are waiting for the boinger so they can have breakfast and I'm going to be off to church at 8.  It's my turn to read the Old Testament lesson today and I love it when I can participate at that level.  It's kind of a neat lesson today all about how God gave us life and he will never take it away.  It's eternal!  Isn't that a lovely thought!

I wish you all a lovely day.  Keep cool!

Good morning everyone..

Another hot humid day in the making. I plan to stay in and not fry today. Golden girl sure looks different with her new doo and no doubt feels much better in this heat.

Bubble, thank you  for the new home and the giggles too!! Hope Don is feeling better and please say hello and tell him we miss him here.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning everyone . we are getting a good easy rain. God is good.
hope everyone is having a good day also.



Hi Everyone.  Like about everyone else we are going to be hot here today but not as bad as other areas of the country.  I am hoping we get some rain this afternoon.  As is often the case, we did not accomplish what we had planned as Pat wasn't feeling like getting out to go to get her hair cut and so we just stayed in all afternoon and evening.  I will go to Sunday School and Church in a little while.  Today begins the casual July combined services at 11 am.  We also get will be introduced to our new Associate Minister this morning.  As usual I plan to pick up something for lunch and then have a quiet and restful afternoon watching the end of the golf tournament later this afternoon. 

Gloria, maybe the next rain you have will wash off the spots on the outside.  I think this is the first housekeeper who is willing to do the windows.  She doesn't let any grass grow under her feet and does a very good job and willing to do what is needed.  Since she had done the special work on sealing the island and watching some of the windows in the living area, I had her skip my office other than going over the floor area as it really doesn't get dusty or need much cleaning.  It sounds like you have to be careful in the wind that it doesn't blow you over.  Being too think is certainly not a problem I have. 

Joy, sounds like a wise decision for your son to stay in and rest this next week.  On our weeknight newscast they bring in the weatherman or woman at least every five minutes or so, which seems a bit extreme. 

Jane, did you and your daughter get to eat a little of the jam you made with your breakfast?  I see you had the fresh berries instead. 

Shirley, I know it is the thought of eating a lot of things rather than the actual taste that is the problem some of us experience.  I have never cared for the taste of wild meat.  When I was growing up we sometimes had squirrel or rabbit to eat but don't remember us ever having dear.  I guess they must not have been abundant in our area of NW Missouri at the time.  Wise move on the gift cards and buying gas.  I bet your grands look forward to getting those Amazon gift cards.  For many years, when shopping became difficult for them, my folks would give us $35 at Christmas and I looked forward to that as considered it money I felt free to spend outside of the household expenses.  I haven't heard any fireworks around here yet but sure I will over the next few days. 

Jenny, I bet your dad looks forward to those calls you make and your words of caring and love.  It is not the length of the call but the fact that you cared that is important.  I can understand Diane being concerned.  Lemon is one of my favorite cakes and haven't had any for a long time.  This is the first year that fireworks in Georgia are legal expect in jurisdictions that have separate restrictions.  I have always felt fireworks were a big waste of money although have enjoyed the big displays.  Now it will be on TV or not at all. 

June, nice to see your long posting again and hope that means you had a good day yesterday.  We have two big fireworks businesses within 2 or 3 miles from us but have never been inside of either and won't be.  I guess hearing the fireworks from Disney would be something a person would sort of tune out after awhile.  Glad to see the notepad works well for you. 

Bubble, thanks for getting us started on a new month and a new week.  That is certainly an appropriate graphic for those of us in the USA and the one with the little boy is certainly cute.  I had a chuckle from your jokes this morning. 

Amy, it sounds like Golden girl got trimmed just in time.  Stay cool up your way. 

Lloyd, enjoy the rain. 


Good morning every one 77° already this early. According to the "official" weather we only got into the upper 80s yester day but it was in the low 90s here. A difference from where they get that temperature and what we have away from the shore. so no heat wave yet.

JOY  glad you are starting to feel better. No plans for me for the 4th. I get worn out every time I go anywhere.

JANE  my son brought me 2 quarts of fresh picked strawberries yesterday. I have washed and cut them and this morning I will get them in containers and in the freezer. In a few weeks the blueberries will be ready but they are easier to freeze.

SHIRLEY  before computers and Skype we would call each other once a month on Saturday evening. The phone bills were high when we did that. Like Skype much better.

JENNY  when I went to my son and DIL's home for Christmas and all her famiy was there I got hugs from all of them. I knew some of them before my son started dating her so I was like a member of her family.

JUNE  the one at that meeting repesented the owners. The witch is trying to be nice and will smile and say hello. Most of us ignore her. Glad you used notepad. Best way I know not to lose a post.

BUBBLE  love your graphics for this month. I love seeing our flag. Yesterday some of the veterans here were talking about how disgusting it is to see people dressed up in the Stars and Stripes. Glad I am not the only one whe feels they are disrespeful of the flag and our country. Love the Perfect Son, had a good chuckle with that one.

LLOYD  we had 2 inches of rain a few days ago and it was much needed.

LARRY  the help I get is from my insurance. They are a big help for me but there are things they are not supposed to do, washing windows and moving furniture are 2 of them. I used to move my furniture often to clean beneath and behind. Makes me wonder how clean it is behind things now. A few of them have washed the windows inside but is one of their bosses saw them they could get fired.

Good Sunday morning.  Right now it is so calm and peaceful looking.  Nothing stirring at all.  But, the day is supposed to be very hot today with the heat index close to 105.  And, yes, the weather people keep repeating it over and over again. 

Gloria,  thanks, I am feeling so much better.  I even feel like doing something.  Don't know just what yet, but if I look hard enough I can be sure to find something. 

Jane, when I first go up a little before 7, I  was almost freezing.  My apartment faces the north,  so I don't get much sun at all.  I find that I don't need my A/C until usually in the evening when it gets a little stuffy.  Sometimes, I forget to move the temperature up  and I wake up feeling so cold.  Sounds funny when the weather man is reporting how warm it is even this early.  I still am wearing my winter robe.   My summer electric bill is a lot lower than it is in the winter.

I made some pancakes for my breakfast and made some fresh blueberry syrup to go with them.  Tasted so good. Don't usually go to all that trouble anymore, but it sure was worth the effort.

Hope everyone will stay cool and enjoy this first day of July.



Good Morning, Everyfriend,

Bubble,  thank you for the new shoppe and the jokes.

Thunder rumbling in the distance and water running down the street.  Guess I didn't wake up early enough to experience the heavy stuff.   

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.


Good afternoon, they are having races to day, Sunday I am surprised. The Nashcar, had big races and fire works last night. We are half mile from the track.

bubble, thanks for a great start of a new page.still laughking

Gloria, it was already 80 at 8AM. I heard in the radio the life guards will stay until 7PM at the beaches and the senior center will stay open into the evening

Yes Larry, I would not want to be playing golf to day. There is no shade.   My mother use to live in Alexander VA. Just below the Temple

Good Afternoon... 
Sunny and hot here. 

I enjoy Venison  (deer meat) grilled,
and also Venison Chili...   yum yum. 

I also like fish,  octopus,  bison,  etc... 
A little once in a while.    (Love Liver!)

But I don't like bugs and other critters
that some people seem to like to
eat... (giggle) ..  In fact, even the
thoughts of eating some things,
turns my stomach.   

Have a good day,  Everyone.

This has been a weird day for me. Went to Church and it tired me out, back was hurting.I really had to drag myself home.  So, it has been a do-nothing day. Read a dull book, finally gave up on it, so will start another later. Had some fried chicken and salad for lunch....tonight I will just have some cold cereal and fruit. Hope tomorrow will be a better day, and I hope and pray Bob is doing O.K. Do you hear from anyone back there Bubble ??

Hope you all have a good night. Hugs, Love and lots of prayers. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


My daughter is gone and has texted that she's safely home.  I missed her before she got to the corner!  When she texted that she had arrived home safely, I answered, "Good!  Now when are you coming back?"

I'm off to Dreamland!  I hope your weekend has been as nice as mine.  Sleep peacefully an wake refreshed...stay cool!

Thank you BUBBLE, for our nice clean Soda Shoppe. 

We had a wonderful evening with our family last night.  Brian grilled the most beautiful steaks and we all ate way too much.  The lemon cake was very tasty, but unfortunately it feel apart on the way over to Brian’s.  I put it in one of the fancy tube pans, and even though I sprayed the pan good, the cake would not come out!  I had to bang it on the cake plate, and of course a bit of it stayed in the pan.  Then, I guess I disturbed more than ai knew I had as it really just lost all of the outside.....everyone got a laugh out of it but everyone also had a piece and bragged how moist and delicious it tastes. 

We drove Kurt to the airport this afternoon and he is winging his way back to his family right now.  It is a
L O N G  flight from Denver to Boston....he wil not land until nearly midnight there. 

Good night EVERYFRIEND......

PLESANT dreams to all. 


Good morning everyone..

June is smiling at me on the random images!!

Going to be another scorcher today..I pity anyone or animal that has to be out in it!!  Only heard one go of firecrackers last night  ,not sure if there will be more tonight or not.....hope not!!Babe shakes when they go off and no matter what you do she won't stop till they do!

I started another quilt yesterday ,after I found my cutting table under the mess of previous quilts. ;D
Meals will be quick and easy, salads or sandwiches fit the bill and we do like soup even on a hot day.

Gloria, when do you hear the results from the meeting. I do hope she moves on...maybe a guard at a prison?

Jane , happy to read you had a great visit and I hope the time is short before the next one.

Jenny, when I have had a cake do that I may cut it up pour an instant pudding ,maraschino cherries and whipped cream on it.

Joy, glad you are feeling better.We had pancakes for supper the other night and I had strawberries that should be used up. I sliced them into a pan and cooked them up with some maple syrup for sweetener. Will do that again too!

Shirley, I find gift cards fit each and everyone in the family! What a convenience they are.

Larry, hope Pat is feeling better today..

Roley/Pete , good morning to you......hope you have an enjoyable day!

I had better go back out and chance the sprinkler I put on the garden.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone 71° already.Even with the AC going set lower than I usually set it it was too warm in here. Did not see anyone outside at all. With the sun beating on this side of this building it did not help, shades were down most of the day. too. Just heard on local weather this heat will be with us all week.If I slept 2 hours last night I would be surprised. Just too warm in here. I do not like summer.

JOY  before I got this apartment I was hoping to get one on the north side but instead got this one on the south/west side and get the heat bouncing from the black pavement in the parking lot.

AMY  love it. a guard in a prison. Prisoners would revolt against  her, too. We really do not expect much from that meeting but sh is trying to smile and say hello. Too little too late. It tool me 2 days to clean and slice and freeze 2 quarts of strawberries. Still have a pint or more in the fridge to just snack on.

Think I;ll go see if I can get some ZZZZZZZZs before my CNA gets here at 10:30/ Laundry day.
Keep cool.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  We were up again at the crack of dawn.  The doggies seem to think that when it's light out there, it's time to get up but I have an ace in the hole.  Once they have their pill they know they have to wait so sometimes I just stretch out on the sofa and let the zzzzs take over.  That's what I did this morning. 

I woke up and was putting the coffee on when the boinger went so we all had breakfast and now the doggies are sleeping it off.  They do that a lot!

AMY, my dogs don't like thunder or fireworks.  Annie quivers and Mickie hides.  On the advice of my sister who got it from her holistic vet, I keep something around called Rescue Remedy (I buy it at the health food store).  It doesn't stop their fears but it sure does help.  I just squirt a few drops in their mouth and they calm somewhat. 

This is my evening to work.  It's also the picking time for early black raspberries.  I might not make it but that doesn't worry me because they have a second season for them later. 

I'm getting worse and worse about the driving.  I just don't like going very far any more.  You don't suppose I'm getting old, do you?  And I find that I prefer cloudy or light rain for driving.  The summer sun can be blinding sometimes.

I'm going to Arizona for dinner this week but I think I'll wait until tomorrow to do the casserole.  This one has a corn break topping and a spicy look under it.  We shall see!

GLORIA, we're having the same heat wave this week that you are.  Right now it's 70º and heading for a high of 97.  The A/C at WM won't seem so cold today, I bet!

I wish you all a good day!  Stay cool!

Hi Everyone. Same old weather pattern continues.  I did water my yard last night as I knew the ground had become really dry.  I am hopeful that we may get some rain today.  I have my six month eyes followup appointment early this afternoon.  On the way home I plan to stop at Costco as we need to stock up on a few item.  Scott plans to come over this morning to do some laundry as his washing machine needs repair.  Fortunately, it is still under warranty. I think that will be it for today.  We had a very nice combined service yesterday at Church.  I came home after Sunday School and got Pat as she was feeling up to attending yesterday.  Our new associate minister was introduced and participated in the service.  Since it was a combined service, it was very nice to see the Church pews almost totally filled.

Gloria, the last strawberries I got for Pat she just left the stems on them in the refrigerator and then we washed them as she ate them for her breakfast for several days.  They lasted very well.  Usually she has but them up and sugared them but doing it this way was much easier on her.  Stacey used Skype for a number of years as her only phone as you can pay to have a regular number and to be able to receive calls other than on the computer.  We got her a Skype phone.  When we went on our son's phone plan we also put her on it and then she used a regular cell phone.  It sounds like management must have laid down the law a bit to your apartment manager although it sounds like the bridge has been burnt with the tenants. 

deAngel, I heard the commentator yesterday speak of the difficult job the caddies have in lugging around the 50 pound golf bag for the pros out in that terrible heat.  Maybe it will be a bit cooler in West Virginia at the course where this weeks tournament is to be played.  We lived in Vienna, VA for two years on my first assignment in Washington, DC so I have been to Alexandria a number of times. 

Sandy, do you like Escargot?  I had it one time at a fancy restaurant when on business in Washington, D.C.  Once was enough.  I am not of generation to be eating bugs or ants. 

June, sorry to read that your Church service was so tiring for you and that back was giving you such fits. 

Jane, it is always a relief to hear that our family has safely returned to their home after visiting with us if they live at a distance.  Glad you had a pleasant and enjoyable weekend. 

Jenny, who cares if the cake falls apart a bit as that doesn't change the flavor and enjoyment of eating it.  It sounds like no one minded a bit.  It is never fun to get home from a flight so late at night.  Glad you had some time with Kurt but bet his family was happy to see him get home. 

Amy, my wife got a packet of large quilting squares last week from Missouri Star Quilting company that had sewing themes on them.  What I saw of them they were pretty.  Glad you found your lost cutting table.  :)  We often have soup summer or winter.  We eat other hot foods during the hot months so don't see much difference and it is usually an easy meal to prepare. 

Jane, I find I almost need a sweater when I go into our Walmart as they keep it so cold but that is better than too warm.   


Good Morning from the
warm and humid rocky coast of Maine. 

All is well here...

"Sandy, do you like Escargot?  " 
Jenny ... 

I  had Escargot year and years ago
and I loved it ...   (it was cooked, with
lots of garlic) ...  We used to have
an Escargot Kit that had the shells
and utensils  to eat them with.
Probably back then a recipe too...
(back before the Earth Cooled when
there was no Internet or Googling! )

Have a good day, Everyone.

Jenny, when I was very young, my folks had an elevated oven stove and the oven had no control.  My mother baked cakes "by guess and by gosh".  Actually, she would make a test cake, using a little muffin tin of mine.  This could not be done with an angel food cake.  Almost invariably when Mother put the cake to cool, the insides fell out because the cake was not done.  So we scraped the outside that was done and added ice cream and chocolate syrup to it and had a lovely dessert.  For my birthday the last year my mother was alive, I asked for that kind of cake.  I think my mother was rather insulted, but I got the cake! 

At 10:15 am it is 75 degrees here.  I think we will not be in the 90s as we were yesterday; that about did me in when I was outside - and I managed to stay inside in the a/c  most of the day.  If we have another Sunday like that, I will not go to church as we do not have a/c, only fans.

Mary Ann


G'day to you too Amy, Amy, I am ashamed to say I am not enjoying today !, (for me.the heat at the moment here is over powering, I am spending as much time as I can in the coolest part pf the house !), never thought i'd say that but, I guess there comes a time when even us  stubbon oldies have to admit defeat ! and I admit it  :coolsmiley:.
                                                                  Cheerio.   Peter.    AKA  Roley.


Hello to all my friends. I have been discharged from the hospital and hope to seek respite care  in a local retirement facility. The first thing I wanted to do was to let you know the situation because I know you care. But most of all to thank you for your expressions of good will and wishes for a quick recovery. Such friendship is impossible to measure. Thank you to you all.


Roley, nothing to be ashamed about as I am with you on that!! I did walk over next door to clip their dogs nails and came right home  to enjoy the a/c

I used to do haying and helped combine in this type of weather and we are not stubborn...wiser comes to mind!

Stay cool!!

Don, good to "see" you and please take it easy..

Don, it's good to hear from you and I hope you continue to recover quickly.  We all have been concerned about you and we know it's been hard on Bubble.  Other than that, with the weather we've all been having - stay cool!

YAY!! Our buddy, Don is back among us.  Boy you had us all worried and praying up a storm!  Mind your ways, listen to the doc and nurses and GET BETTER FAST!

I have ARIZONA in the oven for this week.  I wonder if I'll ever get past the A's!  This one looks like a real winner.  I'll let you know.  Since I'm going to work at 3:30, I'm having my main meal very soon.

OOPS!  There's the beeper!  STAY COOL, Everyfriend!
