Good Morning Everyfriend!  I agree!  Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for me!  And there was even more good news in the early evening.  The Amish Carpentry Shop called my granddaughter to set up delivery of the child size rocking chair that I ordered for my new GGranddaughter.  They are delivering it today!  They are taking lots of pictures.  Maybe I'll be able to post one....well, maybe I'll have one I can send to Bubble to post for me!  Wish I was a bit smarter!

Callie, this Doctor is a plain speaker.  He told me about little things that get off their thrones and need to be jarred back into place.  He did a maneuver that took approximately 10 seconds and that was it.  Amazing.  I've since learned that this is a simple description of Vertigo.  So probably all those fancy words apply!

I think I'll keep my appointment that they made with the specialist just to rule out any other possibilities.  They haven't called yet to set an appointment.  I'm thinking maybe Monday. 

The black raspberry fields are still open and my friend wants to go for blueberries so maybe, if they last that long, we'll go after her daughter and family leave...sometime after the 20th.  I still need 1 pound for my syrup. 

And I'm going out today and look for the Amish Farm that had a sign our for cherries.  Guess I better get on my horse....or maybe I should put an egg in my boot and beat it! 

Enjoy your day Everyfriend!

Hi Everyone. Our day starts overcast and will only be in the upper 80's today with only a small chance of rain.  We did get a few brief showers yesterday afternoon.   

I had a very busy and tiring day yesterday.  I did see my new cardiologist and liked him and he spent a lot of time with me.  He asked me to add CO-Q10 daily and lasix every other day and to begin to increase the Entresto by another half pill daily for three weeks and then add it twice a week.  He also told me to drink a small amount of red wine before bedtime each evening.  On the way home I stopped at Costco for a few things and bought a bottle of red wine.  I will have to find the cork screw before I can start that activity.  When I have to replace this bottle I will look for one with a cap rather than a cork.  To finish off the day yesterday we did go out to eat in the evening as the housekeeper and Pat had sealed the rest of our kitchen cabinets and the kitchen wasn't in a shape to try to get a meal.  I have now put everything back in its place on the cabinets after letting them dry overnight.   

I plan on staying home today as am tired and will get some extra rest.  I want to be up to going to Sunday School and Church tomorrow. 

Gloria, so nice to read that someone had a perfect day weather wise.  It was nice of your son to visit with you so long as it is a special time when our kids spend time with us.  You kept your front door busy with the coming and goings on Thursdays. We actually have six of the long handled grabbers.  We had three and Stacey had three which we now have.  I talked to Pat last evening about getting a small laundry basket to put the non-hangup clothes in when we take them out of the dryer.  That would keep them from falling out when other things are removed from the dryer.  Just have to find a convenient place to store it as our laundry room really doesn't have room unless we could put it on a peg on the wall to store it. 

June, your Red Hatters are really becoming the entertainers.  Hope you feel up to participating in the events planned.  You are blessed to live in such a nice facility.  Have you and Dan every used Facetime on your Macs to talk (assuming Dan also uses a Mac)?  It is like sitting across the table from someone.  I am sure your Mac laptop has a built in camera. You can also do video chats using Skype and other applications. 

Jane, nice to read you were able to get help with the dizziness.  What a nice surprise and gift from the Electric Company.  I have used the budget plan for years although had to wait until we had a years experience here in our new home before they would allow me to set up the budget payments.  Getting anew freezer at no charge is indeed impressive. 

Lloyd, do you keep a little book to write down your passwords for future reference.  You have to be careful to use capitals or small letters when those are a part of the password as those must be exactly as you set them up. 

Shirley, my Windows 10 sure didn't anything like 3 hours, perhaps 30 minutes.  It will usually restart several times during the update process and this was a large update. 

Jenny, it sounds like your mind has been put at ease being there with your father for a few days.  He must be doing very well.  Will you be staying much longer with him?  .

Amy, I hadn't given a thought to the fact that yesterday was a Friday the 13th until I saw your posting this morning.  Thanks for the info on how you will use the ramp for your dog.   


LARRY, I've been going to mention this to you for a long time now and I keep forgetting.  I invested in 2 mesh folding baskets from WalMart.  When they are not in use, the fold flat.  In fact, you could probably slide them in between your washer and dryer or one of the appliances and the wall.  They are very light weight and have handles on the top.  They are also very cheap.  I keep them inside the laundry hamper in my bedroom and take them out and unfold them when I need them.  They sort of fold like the sun protectors we all keep in our cars.  You'll find them where laundry hampers and baskets are in WalMart or you can look them up on  The ones I have are bright blue and red but I think they also come in black and white.  They should be evident right now because they are touted for "back to college".

I need help. I took pictures of a breakdown chair I built for the little ones that visit here. got them on this laptop with luck.but can't rember hot to post them in S & F? thought had Larry Hanas phone # but cant fiend it so far.



JaneS,  sounds like  BPPV, which is a form of vertigo in which small crystals in the ear get loose. 
I woke up one morning several years ago to see the room spinning.   My son called a PA friend and she said to get the OTC pills for car sickness. 

They did help but I went to an ENT to find out what was going on.   He diagnosed the BPPV. ( I told him my friends wouldn't be surprised to learn I had rocks in my head!  :crazy2:)

He also did the maneuver to get them back in place. I haven't had another episode but sometimes that ear feels like I'm going to.   

Aw, Larry - what a shame that you "have" to have a glass of wine before bedtime.   ;)

Jenny,  so glad your Dad's PT nurse is someone you both like.  The Colorado hospital connection is very interesting.

Nothing on my agenda today.   

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Mary Ann

Jenny, yours was the first mention I heard of Friday the 13th.  Of course, I was aware of it, but I saw nothing about it otherwise.  Then Amy mentioned it.  I am glad to read that your dad is coming along so well.  i'm the same age as he is and i watch how I walk and where I walk.  If I am with Tom and he thinks I need help, he takes my arm or hand to make sure I don't fall. 

Jane, I saw the picture of your new great-granddaughter and she is to love.

lAnother quiet Saturday, unless you like to do some putting, shuffleboard or Rummicube.....not for me. I do plan to go down at 6;30 and watch "Cup of Water" performers. and soon it will be time for lunch, I'm thinking of eating less for lunch and start going down for a light supper too. I am entitled to three meals a day. We'll see.......

Our high for the day is 86, but warm enough for some A
/C It gets hot on the top floor...flat roof.

I woke up about 3 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep, so got up at 4, read a little bit and fell asleep in my recliner. Woke up when my nurse brought the first meds of the day at 6a.m

There will be a nap waiting for me after lunch.

Janie,my arms want to reach out to hold that adorable little baby. She looks
so alert for her young age.

Have a great rest of the day dear hearts.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Thank you BUBBLE for posting my photos.  She is the love of our lives right now and will stay in our hearts forever! 

JUNE, I want to reach out and hug her, too.  She lives too far away.  But my granddaughter says they are planning a trip to PA to show her off after Christmas.  So something to look forward to!

Is this the Oklahoma baby?  Such a cutie!


This is the OK baby, CALLIE.  Thanks for the kind words.  And I guess you and I have something in common...I also have "rocks in my head".

I also have "rocks" in my head, though it has never been officially diagnosed. My voice echos back in my left ear frequently, and drives me bats.  I find if I lay crosswise on my bed, on my back, head hung over the edge, turn head to left side for a period of minutes it clears it up. Not a permanent cure but enough to keep me sane. Ed used to have "sounds" in his ears, and this is what his doctor recommended.

I sure wish we would hear something from Lloyds English friend, can't remember if he is Bob or Don or ???. but he was looking into a  retirement place.

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