Oh, June, I'll be so glad for you to get your computer back.... we enjoy so little at this age and missing an important connection to the "outside" world is beyond upsetting.  Hope it won't be long now.  I was telling my kids about your need for salt (& included Larry's challenge one time).... they had trouble wondering if I made it up 'cause they are always fussing at me for salting everything.  Then they got to talking about if your "salt" was the lack of iodine from not getting enough salt. 

Do you know or have they said why you have a lack of salt?  My young gr-daughter had to have her thyroid removed because of cancer & will have to take a pill the rest of her life.  It took a few months to regulate that pill.  Cas had to take iodine pills because he didn't get enough salt. Seems the fast foods & all pre-fixed foods, about anything bought from the store... don't use salt with iodine so even if we get a lot of sodium, it may not be the kind we need. I'm a little concerned because I've gotten into a bad habit of fast food & TV dinners, etc., I do buy iodized salt & crave it on everything.  My sons don't salt anything, lots of pepper but no salt.  We really do "have serious discussions" about this, any thoughts, anyone?

My whirlwind daughter was here for several hours, she thoroughly enjoyed the ribs I've been cooking & I am SO glad to feed her.  I still have a couple more packs to cook, will take filling my large crock pot 3 more times, but can offer ribs to anyone that comes in hungry!  She brought me a new Fitbit Versa.... got it set up on the computer I bought in CO last trip.  Then she made sure it synced with my iPhone, so up & running.  I didn't need it but have had to learn how to be a gracious receiver, so disappointing to the giver when a gift is not well received. 

Jane, that crawl space is what we had in the first house we bought but the one we built & this one has a steep enough peak I can almost stand up straight.... NOT my 6'2" husband.  When I put down the rolled insulation in the attic of the one we built, I had sheets of plywood that I moved from one end to the other in the center & used a long piece of quarter-round to push it out to the eves.  The house was 100' long before we added on another 2 car garage with extra door width entrance, & we had a 4' overhang front & back, so was a super hot job.  It took us a year to build that house & my husband was out of town 3 months of the year.... left me plenty jobs to do from Monday to Friday, week ends I did his laundry & cooked up a storm.  We didn't move in until that last floor was carpeted or waxed.  Like you, I'm not uncomfortable on a ladder but am conscious of being "alone" when doing something we've all be warned about.  Our sons got my short legs.... they are about 5'10", but my daughter's 2 daughters are at least that size.  Cas' mother was a tall lady, but both of my parents had siblings taller than they were. My oldest gr-son is 6'5", thin as a rail & eats like a horse. Good luck with your leak.

Cats have been patient with the rains today, but after staying in all night, they are anxious to go out.  They won't eat their chicken, may as well not try to bully them, cats don't bluff!!!

TisieSalt is essential to life

What does it mean to have low blood sodium?
Sodium is an essential electrolyte that helps maintain the balance of water in and around your cells. It’s important for proper muscle and nerve function. It also helps maintain stable blood pressure levels.
Insufficient sodium in your blood is also known as hyponatremia. It occurs when water and sodium are out of balance. In other words, there’s either too much water or not enough sodium in your blood.
Normally, your sodium level should be between 135 and 145 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L). Hyponatremia occurs when your sodium level goes below 135 mE

Tisie-Shirley,lack of sodium in the blood stream can be fatal .cows in the pasture have a huge block of salt that they lick as needed. There are many interesting articles on the computer.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


I went with my daughter to see "To Catch a Thief" starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.  It's an Alfred Hitchcock movie that was originally shown in the mid-1950s.  Interestingly, I saw this movie on it's first round in the same theatre where we saw it tonight.  It was just as good tonight as it was 60 years ago.  And the theatre was just as packed. 

Bucknell University bought the theatre rather than let it go out of business some years ago and it was a boon for the town.  In the summer they have special showings of many of the classics on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 3 afternoons a week they have special movies for kids in the afternoon and they're free.  They have a lot of new things  and a lot of classics through the year in conjunction with the theatre arts department at the college and they're always open to the town.  Some of the perks of living in a college town.

I'm going to wish you all GOOD NIGHT because I'm planning to hit the sack a bit early tonight.  Tomorrow is a work day!  I hope you all sleep peacefully and wake refreshed to a new day!

Thank you, June, I am copying your every word to send my 3 kids.  When I grew up people took salt tablets in the summer..... of course we/everyone did sweat a lot with no AC!  I happen to like salt & sincerely believe our bodies tell us what we need if we listen.  Maybe that Twinkie was not exactly what the doctor ordered but just look what they do for our attitude, right?  ;D

Jane, I also saw it when it came out but have seen it on TV since, a couple times.  Great movie & some beautiful people in movies back then.  Sometimes I get the feeling this new generation wants to just look as dowdy & ugly as they can, but I don't have to look at them if I don't want to, right?  Okay, when you saw it 60 years ago was it a date, holding hands & all that gooey stuff?   :smitten: 

One more package of ribs to cook tomorrow, got the crock pot full to cook all night.  Bargain or not, never going to do this again. I really thought we'd be having one more picnic & would have been perfect to have them all tenderized & just put the BBQ sauce on, sizzle on the grill for a little while & ready to serve.  Reminds me of the expression, "like nailing Jello to a tree".... getting this many on the same path at the same time now.  Think I will just be the "inviteee" for the rest of my years.
