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.

I got these panels, which are navy blue and from the outside
look great.   My three  windows to the world are gigantic.. 

Each window took eight panels (four up and four down)... 

I am sorry that you live in a place where the land lady
is so strict ...    My curtains do not show from the outside.
They absorb the light and do not reflect  anything.

I am lucky to have found these... as my eye problems
require that I control the light in my apartment. 

Have a good Fourth,  everyone..


Gloria, I've been thinking about your window problem and while it sounds like what Sandy has would also work for you and not cause problems, whatever you hang up there could not be seen from the outside if your shades were down.  If you wanted the light in, open the curtains all the way and if you need them to keep the light out, pull the shades and then close the curtains.  You are the only person who will see the curtains and that's from the INSIDE!

Or am I all confused about this?

Long hot day, tomorrow we are to have a thunder storm. I hope that breaks the heat and humidity we have been going through.
Hubby had good results from both Drs and sad news also form one. His rheumatologist is retiring and now has to look for another.

All in all a good day and I am tuckered right out. Construction slowed us down for 20 min coming home but it  sure was nice to be home. Garden is going to have to wait for weeding.....too hot out there yet!

Enjoy your evening everyone.

The goons are starting early with their firecrackers, and some of them are so loud, they make me jump. I wish I had a nickel for each one that goes off. I could buy this place, and the places around us too.

Not much happening since I wrote earlier. Have had a couple of walks, manicured my fingernails....I like to keep them real polish thank you..In fact I don't use any make up anymore, not even a touch  of lip stick. But I do like a couple of spritzes of my Charlie cologne. Others like it too.

I'm sure not hungry, but I brought home half my lunch sandwich so I better go eat it.

I I don't see you later...I send you Love, Hugs and Prayers. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


We have the crazies out there shooting off fireworks, too.  Both dogs are under my desk and I actually think I hear snoring.  I have Tennessee Ernie Ford on the CD player turned up very loud.  I'm hoping they can't hear the fireworks but I can't go to bed until they are finished.  There's just no point because the doggies won't settle and I can't until they do.

I hope you all have a peaceful night and a good tomorrow!

Jane, I remember those rolls of "caps" supposed to shoot in a gun but we never had one, either!  We "borrowed" Dad's hammer & like you, thought that was big time fun.  Wichita has put out a new law "anything that goes higher than 6' will cost $250 fine." and from what I understand, they only need to find a person standing by with the stuff to ticket!  I am hearing lots & lots of bangs, some so loud it sounds like dynamite.  Had an uncle building a huge lake on his land one year & actually set off a stick of dynamite for us to feel & hear..... moved the earth!  We gathered at a gr-son's house outside the Wichita city limits to eat & their whole cul-de-sac will be shooting fireworks until probably 10:00 pm when little kids will be going to bed.  I boogied on home before dark. Cats are all inside.   :thumbup:

Good Morning everyone. well the fourth went well got the chickens all undressed and put in the freezer, will be good fried chicken dinners. Bobs mother gave us all her gizzards,they are my favert piece of the chicken next is the thigh and the drumstick,bottom line is see food diet see food and eat it, Have agreat day.



Good Morning Everyfriend!  The fireworks last night continued just about as long as Tennessee Ernie Ford did on the CD player.  We went to bed and slept well.  The bad part is, I'm pretty sure, they're not over.  They always seem to have some left for the weekend after the 4th.  We'll see.

Today is a "do nothing" day!  At least it's a "nothing planned" day.  I think I'll probably check out my jar supply and get ready for the next black raspberry picking.  They usually open at 8 in the morning but they backed up to 7 during the extreme heat so people could get there before the heat got so intense. 

I might change my bed and wash the sheets today but that's up for grabs.  It depends what the weather brings.  There's supposed to be some rain but the time keeps moving back on the reports.  Guess that's in the other hands also. 

I hope you all have a lovely day.  Keep cool!

G'Morning all.
                   Well, I managed to catch Lloyd today, we spent several minutes nattering over food ! again, lol, (some how or other we always get back to our food lol.), he still is in trouble with his webcam but we at least had a good old chuckle about how in the old days we used to chase the chickens around the yard with the axe !, I guess that that happen's a lot when ever we start to reminisce about the old days !.
Callie. The answer to your question  'who won' is, needless to say, my best mate Little Alfie, he normally sits under my wheelchair but in the warm weather he seeks out the cool draught and holds his ground!, not even I can get him to move! lol.  :thumbup:

                                                                            Cheerio.   Roley.


Hi Everyone.  It is going to be another typical July day but only getting into the low 90's.  Not much planned for today.  I will pick up my friend and we will go downtown to coffee.  After I drop him back off at home I will stop at the Dairy Queen and pick up a small ice cream cake for Pat's birthday celebration on Saturday.  I also need to check on getting her some flowers as a gift from her sister.  I may make a quick trip over to Costco as they have some beautiful cut flowers and the price should be quite a bit less than the florist.  I already have the card and the gift I am giving her so then should be ready for her birthday.  Yesterday turned out just to be a quiet day and the girls did not come out for dinner as decided to just wait and come out on Saturday.  I did watch the Capitol 4th of July program and saw the beautiful fireworks at the end.  I enjoyed it and there was some entertainment for everyone.  The singing of Renee Fleming was gorgeous.  There sure were a lot of people there on a very hot night but they seemed to be having a great time. 

I do remember those little "Lady Fingers" firecrackers as well as the "Black Snakes" that made such a carbon mess.  My grandfather always brought out a bag of fireworks for my sister and I and would include a box of sparklers and a couple Roman Candles.  Your family certainly did their share in the protection of the country. 

Jane, I also remember those cap gun rolls and I did have the cap gun.  That was back when it wasn't political incorrect to even mention guns.  Sorry you faced long lines yesterday. 

June, I hope you didn't "fall apart" after lunch yesterday.  :)  It is nice to have choices of what we want to do and when. It has turned out this week that most of the plans we made each day didn't happen and that is fine.  If things are needed they will eventually get done and if they don't they probably weren't that important to start with.

Sandy, my wife keeps talking about getting some curtains to control the afternoon light in our bedroom so have taken note of the link you shared.  We have slated blinds that help but don't really block out the light.  It doesn't bother me but it does her although she now uses the eye shade at night to keep the air out of her eyes as well as control the light.

Amy, glad your husband had good reports from his doctor.  It is always a bit upsetting to have to find new specialists when one retires or leaves.  I am experiencing this with my cardiologist and will be seeing a new one next week.  I hope your rain today lessens the heat up your way. 

Lloyd, glad you got the chicken project done.  My dad always liked the gizzard and he was welcome to it.  I have always preferred the white meat on chicken and my wife the dark meat. 

Roley, I saw a report on the news recently that many city people are raising chickens in their back yard.  I had enough of that when I was growing up on the farm.  I sure wouldn't want them up close to my house.  Is Alfie a little dog?   


Good morning.  At least, it is still morning for a little bit longer here on the east coast.

I had a kind of quiet 4th of July.   My DIL did pick me up in the morning and we went to the Dollar store,  where I picked up enough birthday cards to take me almost to Christmas.  I don't get there very often, so try to think of everyone who has a birthday coming up.

We then went to a nice place for lunch.  This was a new place for both of us.  In the little towns in my area,  there are not very many what a lot of people call
"fine dining places".   There are all the usual fast food places, but not too many a little more upscale.  The place where we went is mostly a lot of seafood dishes, but they also had a nice small varieity of most every thing else.  I was quite surprised to see a Lobster roll on the sandwich menu.  I have had several different kinds of lobster rolls, but this was the best one that I have ever had.  Even when we were up in Connecticut several times, they didn't compare to the one I had yesterday.  Just lobster meat, a little chopped celery and just enough mayonnaise to hold it together without it all oozing out, on a toasted buttery roll.  It was delicious.  And, I sure am looking forward to going back.  This was just how I have seen a good lobster roll should be like.   Guess maybe we just didn't go to the right places when we were up in Connecticut.  But, happy that I have found a place close by where I know it will be good.

It is kind of a partly cloudy morning,  but supposed to be lower temperatures and lower humidity by the week end.  Nothing special planned for the next few days.

I guess today will seem like a Monday to a lot of people who work, so that will make for a short week. 

Just wanted to say Hi ! and hope everyone will have a wonderful day.



Good afternoon everyone..

My this heat had better find another place to be!!Open a door and it welcomes itself right in!

Broken sleep last night was up a few times with Amy, she finally settled on the end of my bed...once I helped her up there.

Took hubby in town to get his hair cut...different place and man and I am sure this one was trained by lawn mower Louis ,I prefer the barber in a village south of us.

The weather guesser said we are to have a storm, we do need the rain as the lawn is crispy!! Noticed my peas ,beans. tomatoes are blooming and did see a tiny tomato coming!!My mouth is watering for a tomato sandwich with the tomato still warm from the sun.

Crock pot is cooking supper tonight :) I did cook up some boneless chicken for the dogs and cut it up to use later in their dinners.

Joy, you made my mouth water with your lunch, isn't it nice to find such a gem of a restaurant?

Larry, thankfully hubby's cardio Dr is young, really young but she is a great Dr.

Jane, we also had those caps and the guns to shoot them off. I wasn't a doll child I wanted guns and teddy bears :) I hope you found a whole lot of nothing to do today....a rest day for Jane:)

Better go get the dogs supper ready.

Enjoy and stay cool today.

Well, you might say that, so far, I've done whatever I felt like doing.  I didn't get dressed until almost 10 and then couldn't decide whether to take a nap or do something else.  I decided that today is the day I needed to take my trash to the dumpster so with that in mind, I decided to clean out the fridge.

Now I have a nice clean fridge and an empty waste basket.  And while I was doing all that, the dishwasher did the dishes.  Now, I guess I better put them away but I did have to wait for them to cool off.  No use opening the door and letting that heat into the kitchen. 

JOY, what a nice discovery!  I'm so glad you enjoyed your day out and your great meal!

The last boomer I heard last night was about 9:30, and then I fell asleep, so don't know what went on after that.

I woke up feeling blah, so took the day off. It wasn't one of my good days.  I decided to read the book of Daniel in my bible…..I think there are two page left which I will do tomorrow. My Gary feels Daniel is the best book in the Bible. Gary sent in my grocery list and it was delivered  around noon, so I am all stocked up with "extras".

I did take one walk around the garden, but my right foot is so paintul, walking is torture.There is one bone that has no flesh to protect it. I have tried many various pads, but so far, no luck. My Dr. trimmed the callus, but that did no good at all. I am going to tape some cotton balls on that area tomorrow in hopes it will help. The plastic pads do no good at all.

Tomorrow is our Red Hatters practice. And the Singing Good Timers will entertain us in the afternoon. I'm glad I had a "do nothing" day today.

Lloyd, some of the chickens will make scrumptious soup this winter. And fried chicken in great at any season. It was worth your labors.

We are going into a heatwave tomorrow and Saturday…..108 degrees. That is very unusual for us…being so close to the Ocean here in Orange Co. Not unusual for Hemet where I lived before moving here.

Time to heat up some leftovers for supper. I am not a bit hungry, but we have to put the food in for energy.

If I don't get back to say Goodnight, I will wish it to you now. Plus God's Blessings, Hugs and much love. June

Trying to find my post from yesterday. It does not seem to be here, and there are no other posts. 


July 06, 2018, 05:15:28 am #76 Last Edit: July 06, 2018, 05:21:42 am by Shirley
Sorry about the post, Jenny, I think when I look for & don't find, it is probably because I forget to hit the "post" button & am off to see photos or something else.  Hope your father is still on the mend and keeping up with PT, glad he got the card.

When we built a house back in the '60s on an acre of ground, just a road cut down the middle of a wheat field so no trees, no shade at all.... I bought thermo drapes from JCPenney for the living room & family room.  They really helped the heat & the cold weather and they looked nice, floor to ceiling.  For the kids bedrooms I got "room darkener" shades that had a layer of aluminum foil inside but white on both sides. Our kids went to bed before dark when days were long and little one still took naps when we first moved in, the shades were not expensive & had various kinds of curtains & drapes to "frame" the shades (at that time K-Mart was the place to shop & now it's Walmart). 

Amy, I was not a "doll child" either and finally convinced my mother, bless her heart, she loved making doll clothes & my sister loved to dress hers all day long. We do get a restless night when our fur babies can't settle down, don't we?  I've been up for nearly an hour because Tom thought it was time to go explore outside.  My youngest son said his dog got so upset with fireworks he's been throwing up & just lay in his bed all day yesterday, getting up to go outside to potty or when the refrigerator door opened & he needed to check. Son had vacation to burn so took the rest of the week off.  His Great Dane is getting old & back legs weak, not a dog to carry around, think he said 160 pounds one time.

Lloyd, for sure you will have delicious chicken but that was a lot of work. I can still smell the feathers when dipped in boiling water to pull them out.  I do have 2 neighbors that got baby chickens this past year.  Their pens are like little castles inside with full covers so wildlife can't get to them.  One has 6 & the other 8, all pets that get to run free every evening while the owners sit in the back yards to watch them.  They are raising them to have fresh eggs.... and so far I have not volunteered to baby sit for either, I don't want to be responsible.  When we raised the wild ducks some years ago one of them built a nest on a neighbor's front porch so the husband put a fence around so the fox couldn't get to her but she could still fly over the top.  Something tore the fence down & killed her.  Anyway, I do remember helping with the chickens we had during WWII and even butchering some for fried chicken.  I had trouble eating fried chicken because they were pets to me.

June, when my "plantar fasciitis was killing me, my daughter had given me a pair of UGGs insoles to put in some boots I wear down to the river... so I put them in a pair of tennis shoes that are half size larger than I usually wear.  My feet used to swell in summer so why a larger size, but they quit swelling & I never wore those shoes until the insoles... and they completely fixed my foot, couldn't wear anything else for weeks.  I had tried other kinds but only UGGs worked, I bought another pair online & wear them now & then when the foot acts up.

Gloria, so sorry about the sore shoulder.... that is really topping pain on pain.  Hope it is better by now.... I am not getting much done with this heat, even keeping up in here.  ::)

Joy, nothing more satisfying than finding GOOD food.  I'm not a sea food eater, never lived near the coast & don't get the best here.  I didn't even used to care about eating but appreciate more all the time as long as I don't have to cook it. I do keep TV dinners on hand & eat a lot of "fast" food, but don't have any special place like that.  We found some good places in Colorado that the boys & I visit every year.  I don't like eating out alone so always get carry out where ever I go here.

Jane, I had my son help pull the frig out from it's "nook" so I could get the doors open far enough to pull shelves & drawers to clean, they were in awful shape.  Got all the fuzzys out from the motor/compressor & was amazed how much had packed in & around.  I am afraid to pull it out by myself for fear the water line to the ice maker might come loose.  I'm finding I'm not as strong as years ago, but that was one job my husband took care of & I could clean the inside while he worked on the outside.

Have a busy day tomorrow to get ready for lawn guy & then a race across town to get oil changed in my little car.  They rotate tires & wash it, it needs a bath!  The warning to change oil came on, first time in the 5 years I've had it that it wasn't done before.  It does not seem like nearly 5 years old, but was 5 years July 2 that I found my husband dead in bed.... my new life started then.  We are not in charge but have the choice to be happy or grumpy.  Wishing everyone a "fantastic Friday".... is that right, Callie? 


G'morning all
                  Another brilliant morning here and the heat is building up again, just intime for the weekend, then it may just touch 30+C, LARRY, we do not have 'Air Conditioning' larry, never even thought of it !, our normal temp, at this time of the year would be around the 26-28C mark with a sea breeze,apart from the big stores,cinemas and theatres,Hotels, i have not heard of any houses being built with A/C, unless people have them fitted at a later date but, these past few years, especially here in the south the temperatures have risen a few degree's and in various places around here and else where, they are building bigger/stronger sea defences !, maybe the powers to be, know something we don't ?, I live on the south side of the South Downs (Hills), perhaps 50 Ft above sea level, other areas are at least at sea level and some even below, large areas have also over the years been reclaimed from the sea, so we all watch how the climate/weather conditions  have been changing, i'm now housebound but , i'm sure i'll see out my time without getting my feet wet !, my best mate, 'little Alfie' is a dog Larry (A Westie) and he does not like getting his feet wet either !  ;):thumbup:...
                                                                              CHEERS.   Roley.


Good Morning Everyfriend!  We've had pills and we're waiting for the boinger for the doggies.

I'm so sad!  I broke one of my great grandmother's wine goblets this morning.  That's what I get for not washing it and returning it to the china cupboard.  But it's made me determined to get the rest of them to a safe place and I'm taking them out, packing them carefully in bubble wrap in a box and putting the box in my Christmas collection.  My daughter will get them for Christmas.  She'll cry!

I'm off to greet my public at WM this morning.  Wish me smiles and short lines.  I wish you all a great day filled with whatever suits your fancy.

Note to two doggies are Scottish Terriers.  They also have minds of their own!

Good morning everyone..

The weather guesser was right!! My did we have a storm, lots of thunder, lightening and pounding rain! I know I should be thankful for what we had but a soft gentle all night rain would have ben nice. Rain pounded the peas ,beans and one tomato plant over but I think they will be fine.

Today is pick up the blister packs for Kyle and do some cleaning and sewing .

Jane, hugs, sorry but you do have more to cherish. I hope you have  short lines and lots of laughs through your till.

Roley, we had a Dalmatian/Dane 105 lb lap dog, we he thought he was and he also didn't like getting his feet wet. He would jump over puddles.

Shirley, son has two Danes Coal weighs 150 lbs and Skye is a little lighter. Our pets give us unconditional love ,no half measures with them. I am just thankful I can lift her.

June, I hope your  feet soon feel better and as Shirley suggested maybe UGGS would help you.

Gloria, where are you? Did I miss your post?

Larry, I enjoy quiet days..I think I would be a good hermit too. :)

Better get a move on here

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning everyone. our dog Lucky is a black Lab, she loves the water all over feet and all.  we have a lagune or potty pond  she even goes and jumps in it. it is hazy here but still no rain. we could use some  more if you could send it on down here AMY. have a great day everyone.



Good morning everyone, 78° now at 7:15am. sorry I missed yesterday. Trying to sleep on the couch is not working too good. When my son comes next time I will ask him to move the AC to the bedroom. Several ponds, lakes and beaches were closed for swimming on the 4th because of high bacteria, still not open for swimming. Not good for all those on vacation this week and all the heat and humidity. They had a few emergencies at the 4th Parade in Bristol for heat stroke. some of the mardhers and some spectators, too. Imagie marching with those wool uniforms some of the bands wear in that hot sun for 2 miles or sitting and standing on the sunny side of the street. I would have been one of them is I was there. At one of the houses along the rout a laddy had a hose going and spraying the marchers as they went by. Might have felt good for a few minutes.

SANDY  I only hace 2 windows, one is each room and don't think I would like anything that keeps light out. Would not like living with lights on all the time. I do not spend my time looking out but do like day light coming in.

JANE  know I have beel complaining about the heat but glad this heat is not like this all year.

JOY  your lobster roll is the best kind. Years ago near where a niece lived there was a small restaurant and the lobster rolls there were like that and at that time were $1.25. Bet they cost a lot more these days.

AMY  warm from the sun is how I like my tomatoes, too. Best flavor.

SHIRLEY  shoulder is not as sore but not back to feeling normal. I have been careful what I do. I don't know how anyone can work in this heat.

AMY  I did not post yesterday, too worn out to sit here.

We have a chance of thunderstorms today. If we get them I hope it clears the air.

Hi Everyone.  Once again we are to be in the low 90's today.  We had an unexpected but much appreciated brief shower last night.  An hour earlier I had reset the watering system to water last night so went out and turned it off as the rain we had certainly would have been equivalent to what the sprinkler system would have been. 

Today I plan on being at Costco when they open to get flowers for Pat's birthday that I told my sister-in-law I would get.  Now I just have to find what we have done with the several vases we have.  On the way back I will stop at Walmart to pick up a prescription. The rest of the day is clear and I will rest as got a bit too tired yesterday.  I did go to coffee yesterday morning after first stopping at Walmart for a  prescription for me that wasn't ready yesterday. After I had taken the man back to his living facility I made a fast stop at Dairy Queen to pick up the ice cream cake for our family celebration of Pat's birthday, which we will do at noon tomorrow.  As soon as I got home we headed out to the Ruby Tuesday's for our main meal of the day as had a buy one get one entree coupon that was good yesterday.  Finally we went to the barbershop and got the haircuts we both really needed. 

Joy, we have the same thing in not having any fine dining places to eat, not that we would go there very often, but nice to celebrations.  However, there are a number just across the river in the Augusta area. 

Amy, any time we stopped our car yesterday it got very hot and coming out of a store it was also very hot.  I think that is what tired me so much.  I thought I was set with the cardio doctor and then she up and moves.  My new doctor is Indian and I will meet him for the first time next Friday. 

Jane, do you find emptying the dishwasher to be tiring?  I don't mind the upper rack but the lower one is a task. 

June, the book of Daniel in the Bible is a very interesting one.  I did an online study of it years ago and really learned a lot.  Of course, now I have forgotten most of it.  Have you tried any of the jelled foot pads?  Hope you are up to enjoying the activities you spoke of yesterday that will occur today. 

Jenny, I am pretty sure I did read your posting from yesterday but perhaps it was from the day before as time passes so quickly. 

Shirley, your son's dog certainly is big.  My son needs to take vacation as well but will probably end up losing it.  I have encouraged him to take a few days and go up into the North Georgia or North Carolina mountains and fish and relax.  I will not say anything more to him about but he liked the idea.  In the past he couldn't get away because of the dogs and the cat but now Jennifer and Elizabeth are there to see to them.

Roley, no wonder you are seeking a cool place to be.  I just did a conversion to the way we measure temperature and that would be 86 degrees here and that is hot.  I sure wouldn't want to live below sea level as that sounds like disaster waiting to happen. 

Gloria, good to see your shoulder is beginning to feel less sore. 

Time to head out for Costco and Walmart and then home for the day.

Sandy, my wife keeps talking about getting some curtains to control the afternoon light in our bedroom so have taken note of the link you shared.  We have slated blinds that help but don't really block out the light.  It doesn't bother me but it does her although she now uses the eye shade at night to keep the air out of her eyes as well as control the light.


I highly recommend these curtains.  Especially in Navy...
they do an awesome job of protecting me from the Sun...
With a little imagination,   these curtains can be fit over your
regular curtains and only used with necessary.   

My extra large windows take 8 panels .... 4 on top and 4 on the
bottom...  Most windows would not take so many..  I don't like
to skimp with my curtains... they hang better and look better.

Wow... it is Friday again...  so fast...
Have a good weekend,  everyone.


Good morning....I can’ believe it is Friday again.  It is so good to see everyone’s posts....there were NONE yesterday at all, so I did not know if something was wrong, or if I was just not connected?

SHIRLEY, I have done the very same thing.....something happens and I close my iPad, and then forget I was in the middle of posting, and by that time it is GONE.  Thank you for asking about my Dad.  He is working very hard now at PT.  They have him going to 4 sessions a day.  It was 2 weeks ago today he had the surgery....seems more like a month to me! ðŸ˜, Sadly, yesterday they discovered he has a silver dollar size bed sore, so when Diane arrived there was a wound care nurse there treating it.  😟  Diane has been very uptight.... worried about how she is going to handle things when he comes home, so Bob said we just need to go.  No flights available, so we are just going to drive down. We should be able to get him in and out of our car.  Both of their cars are NOT going to work.  Dad drives a Lincoln Navigator and Diane has a small Ford sedan.  Dad has always had a hard time getting in her car, and of course he won’t be getting in his for quite awhile.....if ever. 

It is sad how some pets get so upset over the many of them panic and run away in fear......there were several lost pets trying to be reunited with their owners yesterday.

LARRY, I have that it is your and Pat’s 56th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow.....then Pat’s Birthday on Monday.  Is this correct?

We have enjoyed having the two “Doodle Dogs” here together.  They have us laughing all the time.  My Smokey Cat is pretty much accepting of them now, so that is no longer an issue.  The worse part has been for Bob walking them.  Oliver is a walker and Lola is a smeller, so Bob’s arms have been getting a good stretching!   The eating is a slight issue, but we have worked around that. Oliver’s parents return this afternoon, then Lola goes home Sunday night!

I bet post this.....have a wonderful day, EVERYFRIEND!

I'm home from work and it was bad again today.  It was even busier than a usual Friday.  Didn't these people have picnic leftovers to eat?  I'd have been glad to help them.  But there they were.l..buying more stuff!

LARRY, so far, I don't mind loading or unloading the dishwasher, top or bottom.  I take it all out and put it on the counter and then close the door and put the stuff away.  My kitchen is pretty small and I prefer not to work around the open door.  And then, when the door is down, Mickie thinks she has to help.  I'd really rather she didn't do that.

I'm resting while I wait to meet my daughter and SIL at AAA to be a witness to something they have to sign for.  I didn't ask them what so I don't know what!  Guess I'll find out!

Enjoy the rest of your day Everyfriend!

Good Morning dear hearts. I love you. Just finished reading all your good posts, so now I will go back, re-read, and comment.

It is 11:30, and I will have to go down for lunch in 40 minutes, so this post will be a bit scrambled, I'm sure. Morning is my best time of the day. I eat lunch and all of a sudden I must nap.

Went down for our Red hatters singing…Randy, our sweet director and piano player is out…..ill, I presume.He is not a strong person…just very kind, very patient and very loving.I am praying for him.

The only other thing on my agenda is the "Singing Good Timers." They do not live here, they are a hired group. due at 2 p.m. I would bet a buck I'll be snoozing.

Jenny, I will certainly look into the Uggs. I need to walk to help my circulation problem, and I will also check on the gel insoles that Larry spoke of. My feet have been swelling too. Isn't old age Exciting though…..never a dull  moment…always something to gripe about.

Time to get ready to go down for lunch so I will close this and pick up later.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

I'm just in to say Goodnight. We had a horrific as hades. I recorded112 degrees for Stanton. Took a nice cold shower and that helped, but didn't last. I have read and snoozed off and hot to sleep. The air conditioning was off and on...on just a few minutes, then off for a long time. Ick !!!!! I still have the windows closed. Computer is still over a hundred degrees. Have a good night kids...God is still in charge, thank You God. June

I'm up and (sort of) attem this morning.  Good morning to all in case I don't get back for a while.

I had and email from the berry farm that they will have red and black raspberries plus blueberries to pick today.  And since the weather decided to cool off considerably (only 54 right now and only into the low 70s for the day) I decided to head out for some berry picking.  I don't know how long I'll hold out but the fields are opening at 7 and I'm going to be there as early as I can.

Cathy and I went to the Amish store yesterday and I had a hoagie for my supper.  Didn't need a lot but I got what I needed at a nice bargain.

I wish you all a good day.  Make your best one yet!
