Don welcome back, keep the recovery spirit going and positive thoughts :)


June Drabek

Don, I am saying special thanks to God that you have been discharged from the hospital, and I do hope you find a care facility that is kind and caring till you are all well again.

It has been a quiet day here. I watered all my plants, and that wore me out. Had lunch downstairs, then off to see a movie at the club house. It was two hours long, so my back was scolding me for not lying down.

for some reason I have lost one of my favorite programs...I think my  computer is feeling it's age. Hopefully my son will be able to mend it. Utube was great for finding music, but I think they update their stluff, and mine doesn't want to accept it. boo hoo.

Nothing newsworthy from out here. I hope you are all well, and Janie, I know you are missing your daughter...just keep the memories alive of the good visit.

Once again, I Love you all, God keep you safe in his loving care. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good evening.  Another scorcher here in the Mile High City again.  It will be that way again tomorrow then the 4th is to be a bit cooler.

I did not get to talk to my Dad yesterday.  Found out this morning that the ringer got turned off on his phone and he is not sure how that happened.  He does not think he did it, but maybe someone else when he was out of his room.  Anyway, I did get to speak to him this afternoon and he sounded good.  He had double PT time today, since he did not have any Saturday or Sunday, so he was pretty bushed.  When a patient is only allowed so many days in rehab, it rather surprised me that he goes weekend with out any PT.  Wednesday, the 4th is probably another off day.  There is a meeting tomorrow with the staff and he will be told then what day he will be released.  Diane is concerned it will be right away, and she worries that he is not ready.  We will see. 

DON, it sure is good to see you posting.  Welcome back. We sure were not happy to read about your issue and were so sorry that you remained on the floor until Bubble was able to alert someone to get you some help.  Continued good positive thoughts for you to feel better soon.

AMY, I will keep your good suggestion in the back of my mind for the next time I have a cake mishap......as I a: pretty sure their could be one!

MARYANN, cute story about your Mother making cakes and the fact that you wanted and got that cake for your birthday.  The inside of this cake was perfect...the outside edge just fell off.  The boys loved it and said the part that fell off is their favorite part!  It was thin and sort of chewy. 

LARRY, as you just read, it sure didn’t matter that the cake fell apart.....besides it brought on a lot of laughs.  Brian and Cathy’s plane was delayed leaving Denver for Boston this morning by nearly 3 hours.....the plane was delayed coming out of Boise to begin with then there were issues after it arrived here in Denver.  Kurt had big plans to take them up the coast to a special place for a Lobster Roll, and some costal site seeing....but arriving after 4 PM, this plan had to be put on hold.  They were all disappointed as their time together is limited as it is. 

GLORIA, you have not mentioned “the witch” lately.  Is she laying low now or what?  Is there any chance of you changing apartments, or are you stuck in yours forever?  I have heard that some places will allow you to get on a list for the next apartment to open up? 

JANE, I am waiting to hear about your Arizona Meal.....I hope you enjoyed it. 

Hope you have felt much better today, JUNE. 

PLEASANT dreams to all. 



G'morning all.
Another 'scorcher' forecast !, so i thought i get in early before the heat builds up again, Jean has just taken the dog for his early morning trot !,also to pick up the paper from the Newsagent in the village, when they get back no doubt 'alfie' the dog and i, will have a 'Argy-Bargy' for the coolest spot in the house!.

Larry. I noticed you mentioned Escargot i must admit i never have eaten them, (spent most of my garden life, trying to kill the 'Blighters' lol) but, i used to enjoy eating 'Winkles', localy picked from the rocks, when the tide was out, never eat the commercial ones though!, a winkle is a Sea Snail, being a seaside holiday coastal resort no holiday is complete unless you have a plate of 'winkles'  :thumbup:

                                                                                Cheers.   Roley.  :)


Good Morning Everyfriend!  I survived last evening and last night....just short of exhaustion.  Everyone in three counties must have been shopping for picnic supplies for the Fourth of July holiday!  The store was packed and the carts were loaded!  And I was tired!

When I came home, all I could think of was to take the doggies out and give them their supper and then go to bed.  And that's pretty much what I did.  However, I thought a nice glass of wine might help me sleep better but I was wrong.  It gave me the worst case of heartburn I've had in a long time and kept me from sleeping soundly for most of the night.  Then when I did get to sleep I got a terrible cramp in my foot and ankle to keep me awake more.  Bad night!

JENNY (and anyone else who's interested) the Arizona casserole was delicious!  A little on the spicy side but I like that and it's never bothered me.  Come to think of it, maybe the combination of spicy and wine is what brought on the heartburn.  No wine the next time!

JUNE, you are absolutely right!  I do miss my daughter but this one will be back soon.  She lives in Maryland and she has recently started a job that gives her weekends off.  I'm happy to say that she also misses me when we don't see one another so she'll be back!

Now I'm going to go make coffee and see what the day brings besides extreme heat.  I hope Everyfriend will enjoy the day and something good comes for each of you!

Good morning everyone..

Another blistering day here, yesterday we had a dandy storm which knocked out the power. We hooked up the generator and used that ,although it doesn't run the a/c we used a fan for the dogs. Power would come back on so out we would go, disconnect the generator put it away and off would go the power again!! We did get our work out yesterday!!

Golden girl surprised me this morning ,she is acting like a young pup. Mobility much better and very treat motivated!!  Hope this is going to keep up!

Don't know what today will bring..just know not much work done outside..

Larry, Missouri Quilt Co has great deals each day!! I am done the skateboard quilt and now doing a disappearing 4 patch. Pat will understand this one.

Roley, you brought back memories, my Dad loved Peri winkles. Mom would cook them up and then he would take a darning needle to get the snail out and dip it in vinegar with pepper in it. No one wanted any of those , he had them all!!!

Jenny, another hot on here and tomorrow is going to be worse!!  Will they give your Dad any help when he gets home or will they expect Diane to do all the work?

Gloria, it is another stay in day here, my gosh I feel sorry for anyone having to work out in this or animals left outside with no shade or water!

Jane, can you cut back on the spices? What all was in your casserole?

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone

AMY, I suppose one could cut back on the spices but I liked it that way.  It has chicken, Pepper Jack Cheese (you could change the cheese) poblano pepper, onions, flour, seasonings, milk, cream cheese and green chilies all cooked together and put into a baking dish and a corn bread topping. 

The first piece I ate straight up and it was good but when I reheated the second piece, I turned it upside down on the plate and it was more like having a crust.  It wasn't as pretty to serve but easier to eat!

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


Jane thank you, I have not heard of poblano pepper will look into that.

I am keeping an eye out for sweet cheeries, we went through the ones I did like a hot knife through butter. Radishes will soon be a size to pick and I will try your fried radishes. You are teaching me a lot!! :smitten:

Hi Everyone. It is to be another typical July day here in South Carolina.  I do have another pretty busy morning planned although not difficult.  Right before 9 am I will pick up an online order of groceries at Walmart and then make a quick stop at Aldi's on the way back to the house.  At 10 am I am meeting someone here in my office for an hour.  The rest of the day is clear.  My eye appointment went well yesterday and he said my eyes are in great shape other than I have developed dry eyes, which I can take care of with over the counter means.  I was fortunate to have a riding cart at  Costco so that make my shopping their much easier.  However, I was ready to rest when I got home about 3 pm.  Jennifer and Elizabeth were here starting to do cloths washing as their washing machine won't be fixed for several days. They didn't leave until about 8:30 last evening.  I expect the yard maintenance company to be in our neighborhood this morning for the entire day. 

That was good news last night about the 12 boys and their soccer coach who were cave explorers in Thailand who were found safe but are still trapped in the cave.  Now that they know where they are they can undoubtedly get them food so they can be sustained until they can be rescued.

Sandy, it sounds like you were into eating Escargot in a big way. 

Mary Ann, it sounds like your Mother thought her cakes were just fine.  My grandmother make many hot milk cakes and they were always flat but tasty although she had an oven that the temperature could be controlled but I am sure she made many of them before such appliances were available as she was born in the late 1800's. 

Roley, it sounds like you don't have air conditioning.  I still have many memories of growing up without air conditioning in Missouri and during my early work years.  I hope you are being able to stay cool and hydrated. 

Don, so good to see your posting and know you are now out of the hospital.  I hope you soon find a place to go where you won't be alone and where their will be plenty of room for your extensive music collection.

Jane, I had to chuckle about your having "Arizona in the oven" as expect Arizona is an oven this time of the year.  Of course, I know what you were talking about and hope the dish is very tasty.  Sorry you had such a rough shift at your register yesterday and then it was topped off with not getting a good nights sleep.  Hope you can get some napping in today. 

Amy, it is tough when one becomes used to AC to lose it on a very hot day and then to have it come back on intermittently.  At least it gave you some respite when it came on even if it didn't last. 

June, I think one reason I seldom watch a movie on TV anymore is that I don't like the length of them.  An hour is OK but two hours stretches my patience.  I hope your back is feeling better today. 

Jenny, your Dad probably wondered why you didn't call him.  I have a problem with the switch on my iPhone for the ringer being turned off when I close my phone case that I keep on my belt.  I guess the button has worn down and is easily moved if I am not careful how I close the phone case.  Glad you got to speak with your dad and found him sounding good.  A three hour delay for a plane to leave and then having a pretty long flight on top of that must have left Brian and Cathy exhausted by the time they got to Boston.

Roley, I like the expression of "Argy-Bargy" as that is one I have never heard before.  I hope you won the argument for the coolest spot in your home. I have never heard of "winkles" either. 



Good morning everyone, 73°, tried sleeping on the couch again last night. With the sun shining in here from 1pm till sunset it feels like the AC just cannot keep it cool in here. It is blowing out cold air and I have 2 fans on to circulate the air but at night still hot. This is the first time in a long time it has been this hot for so many days. No official heat wave but in this northern part of the state it has been over 90 for 3 or 4  days.

Twisted my left shoulder somehow getting off the couch and it is hard to move it at all. Every time I do I have to do it slowly. My left hand is resting at the edge of the shelf the keyboard is on, hard typing.

DON  so good seeing your post this morning. Glad Bubble could get in touch with your son.Take care of yourself. Would be a good idea for one of your sons to call and check on you every day. Cannot be too careful as we age.

JENNY  I am stuck with this apartment.The lady across the hall is now in a nursing home. The back side away frm the sun where one sees trees and birds and even deer at times. The witch must have been talked to becaus she is trying to behave. Will not last long.

PETER  I r emember once being at the ocean when I was very young and picking up a bunch of small snail shells. Suddenly I felt something moving in my hand I opened my hand and threw them down. Older sister explained to me that they were alive and were caled  PeriWinkies. Never picked up anything that looked like a snail again.

JANE  after working hard at WM. you sure did not need a sleepless night. Before I finally looked into why I got bad heartburn in the middle of the night then was told it was GERD and have meds for it now, I would take a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. Tasted horrible but I sure burped for awhile and finally got to sleep.

AMY  just heard we MIGHT get a thunderstorm about 4 this afternoon. When we went to my in-laws summer place in Maine we would see Muscles all over near the shoreline and the rocks. Nobody picked them. Now they are big sellers and are claimed to taste better than clams. Talked to second son and luckily he is working inside with this heat.

Better get moving. If I start now I might be dressed when my CNA gets here. Try to keep cool.

Good Morning from the clear but
going to be hot and humid,  rocky coast of Maine.

It is too bad that you can't get something
to hang up to those Windows that would
block the  sun from coming in,  on days that
are beastly.     

My Windows are covered with light blocking,
lightly insulating curtains. That can be opened
or closed on days to prevent the sun from
heating up my apartment...

Otherwise my window AC would have
a difficult time keeping it cool in here.

I can not tolerate the heat.  If I didn't have
access to my curtains,  I would nail up
blankets or what ever to stop the suns

I hope that you find a solution ..

Jane...  "AMY, I suppose one could cut back on

Pepper Jack Cheese (you could change the cheese)
poblano pepper, onions, flour, seasonings, milk,
cream cheese and green chilies all cooked

bread topping. "

That would be a recipe for days of Gastrointestinal upset
for me ....  all those dairy products and spices... 

I grew up on daily dairy  overload... when I was
younger, I did ok ...  but I know my limits today. 

And YES,   when I limit what I put into my
stomach, (no matter what the time of day)
the meals aren't as tasty or fun
to eat,  but my old stomach  and digestive
system doesn't hurt me any longer.   

Have a good day,  everyone ...   and happy FOURTH.



GLORIA, thanks for reminder of baking soda.  That was my grandmother's remedy for a lot of stuff.  She used to say, "If you were meant to keep it down, it'll help.  If it has to come up, it'll do that, too."

SANDY, I really think it was the combination of the dairy, peppers and wine that gave me heartburn.  I like spicy food and I eat a lot of it with no problems.  And it's been ages since I had heartburn.  It's also been quite a while since I had a glass of wine...maybe Christmas?  I have some around but I forget it's here most of the time.

Radioman Don"  It is so nice to read your note - take care. 

Roley:  I do hope the hot weather passes quickly so all in your area are comfortable again.  Our granddaughter is in London for a school session - she really liked visiting Edinburgh. She is taking Economics at the same school her mother went to years before and I wish I could visit her too. 

Jane:  Glad that your painful night is over.  I hope you get the work time you wish and sending special vibes to you so the customers will be happy and grateful for your service. 

Jenny:  Do  you remember the "Tunnel of Fudge" cake mix?  I made it for company and flipped the pan on a plate without cooling it - we all had to jump out of our chairs because the river of fudge spread all over the table and leaked onto the floor.  Our good friends from Leadville always talked about that episode.   /b]

Larry, I think my mother was hurt because I chose a cake she knew would not come out OK. 

Carol, your Tunnel of Fudge cake made me think of a molded jello salad I made for a company/department party.  I don't remember if I didn't give it enough time, or just why it didn't set good, but it didn't so when I put it on a plate, it just sagged.  I made it in a bundt pan which shouldn't have made a difference.  It was like soup.  Norm's MIL had a similar experience only with Cool Whip instead of whipped cream.  That turned out to be Coconut Soup.  The trials and tribulations!!!

I'm waiting for my a/c to go on.  Both the room temperature and thermostat read the same so it is time!  It's nearly 90 outside.

AH!  It just went on!

Mary Ann



Good after noon, just home from grocery shopping, should not have gone so early, as it was a mob scene, Of course it is the day before the 4th.

Don, so happy to see you home from the hospital. I hope you get a panic button. As I wrote before. I have used mine a couple of times.

Jenny, maybe the cleaning person hit the wrong button. AS I wrote before, the PT did not work on weekends. Also while I was in rehab we had a blizzard, so they did not come to work that day either. I amsure he will have a nurse stop by, when he is home for 3 weeks at lest.

June, good to see you post.  It is good for you to have outside interest, like dinning down stairs, going to church, movies etc. I know I need to talk to other people, and to day on TV it is important to drink real coffee, you need the cal fine for you brain and long life. I do not know what they will say next week :)

Amy, cherries are very cheap this week. To day at Stop and Shop they were $1.77lb

Roley, I had never heard of winks.  My grandson loved Escargot when he was 3, he would eat  a plate full.  He also liked mussel, which I love, in garlic butter

Good Afternoon,

Our weather gurus are reporting dust from Africa is affecting the atmosphere in central Oklahoma!   "Whatever.." (as the young folks would say).  ::)  I know my nose feels stuffy and I start sneezing if I'm outdoors for very long.  Guess this is as good a thing to blame it on as anything else.

Don,  so glad to hear from you in person and sending good thoughts and prayers for your recuperation.

JaneS,  your state by state casserole project sounds very interesting  Can't wait to see what the one for Oklahoma will be.  I found this link to "12 Iconic Foods In Oklahoma"   https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/oklahoma/iconic-foods-ok/. Wouldn't surprise me if some of these ingredients are included in the recipe.

Jenny and others,  I've made many a "pudding cake" just like the ones you've mentioned.

Sandy,  I sympathize with your dietary restrictions.  Seems as if mine eliminate everything today's diet gurus think we all should eat.  Sometimes, I wonder how I managed to become a healthy adult after growing up with real butter, fresh milk, lots of eggs, red meat and peanut butter!

Roley, I'm guessing an "Argy-Bargy" is a combination of arguing and bargaining.  Who won this one?   :)

Nothing going on in this corner.  Only thing on the 4th I know of is feeding the neighbor's dog.  Ho hum.



CALLIE all I can remember about the OK casserole is that I think it's a breakfast one and it has sausage and grits in it.  I don't think I've ever eaten grits.  That will be a first for me!

Good Night everyone. hope you all have a great and safe forth tomorrow.
Sweet dreams everyone.

I wasted a lot of time today trying to retrieve Utube for my computer. It is not to be found. There is now something called Youtube...phooey !

We had an interesting  Community members meeting this morning...then a tasty lunch downstairs. Then on to a new walking program. I made it around the gardens four times, with rests in between. I was told 12 times around is one mile, so I'm not proud of my amount, but next time I may add to that.

A huge boom of a fire cracker just went off. Not in our place I'm sure but we are surrounded by private homes. Last year it went on till after mid night. Where I lived before..... different county.

Lloyd....Goodnight friend, I pray tomorrow finds you feeling fine, and may God heals those legs real soon.

It's time to get off this computer before I go blind. Will look forward to our tomorrow. God Bless America !!!!!!  Hugs, Love, and Prayers. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good night Everyfriend!  I'm off to Dreamland....I hope!  This night can't be as bad as last night!  I wish you all peaceful sleep and a good tomorrow.  As JUNE said..."GOD BLESS AMERICA!"

Late to post again.

We just finished watching the movie Mamma Mia. I have to say I did enjoy it very much.  I know and love all of the songs so I was singing all the way through it. 

I was only able to speak to my Dad today for a very short time.  They had him in PT nearly all of the day.  He really sounded tired. Diane called to say that they told her Dad will be released to go home on the 10th of July.  They wanted family members to be there on Sunday and Monday and they would show us how we can help him at home. This is all well and good but there are no flights available from Friday through Tuesday, the day he gets out.  I planned to fly down on the 5th and come home n the 10th, so my reserved flights will not work out at all.  I wish my brother could go as he is physically able to help dad with ease, where I am not hardly going to be able to do that much.  I have been pretty stressed out over this all evening, so that is why we decided on a movie to get our minds off of it fo a bit. 

GLORIA de, there was no mention of PT or nursing care after Dad is released t9 g9 home.  I hope you are right that he will get care. 

AMY and SHIRLEY, my dad did tell me today how much he appreciated receiving the get well wishes from you both.  He was very taken back that you would do this for him.  Just as he was telling me this his PT person came and we had to end our conversation.  He sounded a bit emotional as he was telling me this, so I know it meant a lot to him.  Thank you both. 

AMY, I sure enjoyed the picture of your cute skate board quilts.....thank you, BUBBLE, for posting the picture for us all to enjoy.  There is no indication that Dad will receive any help after he goes home! But we shall see.  Keep cool of you can....it is HOT all over the place. 

GLORIA, I am sorry to read yo7 can not change apartments...the one across from yo7 sounded so much better of a location.

CAROL, I am not familiar with the tunnel of fudge cake you told about, but I bet your friends will never forget that cake!  I can just imagine everyone jumping up to get out of the rolling fudges way!

It is bed time so I best get this sent and head off to bed.

Pleasant dreams to all.

Good early morning everyone..

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY to you. Safe travels for those on the roads today.

We are off to the city for 2 Dr appointments for Hubby, at least they are on the same day and not far from each other. Meeting up with a friend first to exchange quilting items then on to appointments.

Jenny ,thank you for letting us know your Dad got the card. He may improve a lot in the hospital and won't need too much care when he goes home. Just as long as someone is there and thankfully he has Dianne to help if need be.

June, wow, you are amazing in all that you do!!

Gloria, one of our stores has the cherries on sale for 1.97 so I did get a bag full.

Might try to get more sleep.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Once again I didn't get directed back here this morning!  I guess I'll have to train myself to check.

I did sleep better last night.  I only woke up once because I was too warm and then I realized that wasn't the only reason.  There was a small seat calling my name.  After the doggies got up, went out and had their pill, I realized there were some zzzzs on the sofa with my name on them.  I slept a bit more while waiting for the boinger for the pill time. 

I one of the ones who will be working this morning.  It shouldn't be busy today.  Everyone should be home preparing all the stuff they bought yesterday and Monday. 

Enjoy your day however you spend it!

Good Morning everyone. well it is a work day here, we are going to butcher the chickens. Bob's other his sisters and two nephews are going do total of 70 odd chickens. will be good fried chickens this winter, have a great day.



Good morning everyone 77° already at 7:30 am. Guess I am getting bet ter at sleeping on the couch or just worn out from ladk of sleep but did sleep more last night. At least I don't feel like a Zombie this morning. This is supposed to be the last day of this heat. Will believe it when the high tomorrow is what it is here now. Could be the weather guessers are trying to make us feel better today. I do not envy those marching in the long Bristol parade today. Would not want to be even sitting along the curb waiting for the parade to go by. Along the street they march the center line in the road is awlays painted red white and blue. Oldest  continious 4th parade in the country.
We had a power outage yesterday while I was on Skype with my daughter. I called her to t ell her what happened. Then went out into the hallway to see others standing around. One lady came up on the elevator and told us it was cool downstairs. soe we piled into the elevator and down we went. The generator worked for the first floor and the elevator and the lights in the hallways. Someone called the power company and was told their generat o went down and would take a couple of hours to get back running. 25 minutes later the power was back. Just heard from weatherman that the heat index yesterday in northern RI was 106. No wonder we all felt like we wanted to just sit in front of our ACs.

SANDY  if I put up anything to reflect the sun away on the windows I would have to take it down as soon as the witch saw it. I did see some curtains in a catalog  that are supposed to reflect the heat but if they were shiny in the windows on the outside she would not want those either. Still wish my atartment was on the north side of the building. We do have white shades and the only time they are up is in the morning before the sun hits these windows.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

AMY  your quilts are wonderful.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July however you celebrate the day. I will be staying inside where it is cooler than the 87° it is already.

Hi Everyone on this 4th of July.  We had planned to all get together to celebrate Pat's birthday a few days early but Scott told us yesterday that once again he has traded days with another employee and will be working tonight.  So now we may do it on Saturday at noon.  I expect to have a pretty quiet day today.  I have done the kitchen choirs except to fit Pat's breakfast.  I split a big ripe and juicy peach and a banana between  but will add a couple of strawberries to Pat serving with her breakfast.

Gloria, I have always found it is easier to get warm than it is to get cool.  You sure don't need added pains and now your shoulder is hurting.  My mother and grandmother also used baking soda for upset stomachs and you are so right it sure didn't taste good.  Since I sleep with my head elevated I seldom am bothered by my GERD.  Good to see you slept better last night.  Glad to see your place has a generator in case of the power outage so that the elevator still works and that you could find a cool place to wait. 

Sandy, I remember when you got your insulted curtains and glad they help with the heat.  We had to get special dark window screens for our front windows in my house where we did live.  Our neighbor had them also but his wife didn't like them so he gave his to me and I added them to the windows where our dinette set was located and they would get a lot of sun and then also on the dining room windows as they got the afternoon sun. 

Jane, at least you can identify why you had the bad heartburn and can avoid that combination in the future. 

Carol, that must be a wonderful experience for your granddaughter to study in London.  If I had been at your table when your "Tunnel of Fudge" cake erupted into a river I would probably just picked up my spoon and started enjoying the fudge.  I guess it is one of those moments not soon forgotten. 

deAngel, I heard a report of a study just released saying that coffee drinking could perhaps extend a person's life and that it didn't matter whether it was regular or decaf but adding cream and sugar probably negated those benefits.  I expect there will be another study released saying just the opposite.  I am still not going to drink coffee as really don't like it.  That is a good price for cherries.  I will have to look for them or have Pat check them out on the Walmart grocery site.

Callie, are you telling us Oklahoma doesn't have enough dust and now you have to import it from Africa?  :)  I sometimes wonder how people in the past survived without all the warning labels and studies telling us what to eat and how much. 

Lloyd, will you be with family for the 4th?  Whoops, I see you will be dealing with dressing chickens today. At least there are several of you working but that is still a lot of chicken. 

June, I think it is youtube.com that you need for the videos.  Walking a third of a mile is quite a good achievement.  I would have a lot of problems trying to do that these days.  I just did a quick search and found that it would take 2,000 average length steps to walk a mile. 

Jenny, I am sure doing PT nearly all day would tire most elderly folks.  Hopefully your dad will become stronger before he is released to go home. 

Amy, I hope you have a good trip to the city today and the appointments are met on time.  I am sending a copy of the quilt photos to Pat as know she will enjoy them. 

Jane, good to see you had a better nights sleep last night.  I hope you have smaller orders and shorter lines today.

Happy 4th of July! Anyone remember shooting off those little "Lady Fingers"?  My brothers were awful about tossing them at us & each other.  My sister would scream & go inside but I joined in.  Someone always had those "snakes" that would just keep smoking out their long tails, doubt they ever spent more than a dollar or two but each brother did their time serving our country, one in the Air Corp, one in the Navy & the youngest did his in the regular Army. My brother in law was in the Marines and my husband 4 years active duty in the Air Force & 4 more years inactive duty. God Bless America, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow


Happy Fourth!  SHIRLEY, your story reminded me of the firecrackers we had.  They were the rolls that were meant to be used in the firecracker pistols but we never had the pistols...just the firecrackers rolls.  We'd spread them on a rock and then pound them with another rock and we thought we were something!

Lines were still long this morning and I wouldn't want to be standing ovre a grill cooking all the meat that went through just MY line!  They're going to be cooking well into the evening!

I'm beat and I'm going to rest a bit!  GOD BLESS AMERICA!  LAND THAT I LOVE!

All is quiet on the Western Front.....Stanton that is. The only thing  scheduled today was Bible Study, that I attended. A couple of other things scheduled but not for my taste.  I will go down for lunch,then home to fall apart. That is get comfy, read and snooze. Maybe go down for supper, maybe not. May go for a walk or two, maybe not. I love the privilege of making choices. Well.....it Is Independence Day, right ?

Jeff told us a joke today. "Where were you when the lights went out ?"

"In the Dark."
As long as we are here, let's dance.
