  • Pooch1: "Sniper" is a noun.  "Snip" is a verb.  Not funny to be unknowing of the difference in how the two words are treated.

  • Pooch1: 3rd graders learn to double a final consonant preceded by a single vowel before adding 'ing.'  Snipping refers to cutting remarks.  A snipe is a bird.

Soda Shoppe for August 15, 2018

Previous topic - Next topic


Been up a few hours but am seriously thinking about crawling back in bed before dressing.  I missed my 6 hours sleep only by a few minutes but my "average" for the whole week was less than 4 hours per night.  Naps don't count unless they are at least an hour long.  I love my Fitbit for counting sleep more than steps.... makes a great watch as well as the information it collects, but the kicker is "one more thing to keep charged"........

We all get those links to fantastic videos but this morning I got the best I've ever seen, for photography.  Hope all of you enjoy as much as I did, & wonder how on earth "they" ever came up with such amazing video.


Good morning everyone, much cooler this morning 64° and we did no have thunderstorms either to clear the air. Cloudy but at last I finally opened windows to let fresh air in. I did not sleep well last night and if I wasn't hungry I think I would still be in bed trying to get more sleep.

AMY  like your neighbor's mother  I would not want to go into the city to a doctor. The city meaning Providence where all the big hospitals are. Traffic is horrible there and too many shootings and stabbings. I will stay here in a much quieter town.

LARRY  much better day here today. Hope to get out later and enjoy it.

SHIRLEY   my daughter has an iPhone and has been taking wonderful pictures with it. She has some different apps that she can do amazing things with her pictures. She joined a group that experiments with their photos and share tips and help each other. Almost as good as PSP. I will check your link later, have it opened in a now window.

LARRY, I'm not going out of the house today.  My reference was "in and out" of Soda Shoppe.  I took myself to the Dr. yesterday and that was about my limit.  I've been in "flop city" most of the morning and just stopped here on my way through to see what everyone is doing.

Back to the flopper!  Like Gloria, I got up for my stomach's sake!

Gloria and Janie, put me on the list of bed floppers. I don't even want to get dressed today, just sooooo tired. No dis-abling pain, just no energy at all. Even my typing hands are tired.

Lloyd, I too like to watch the skies, especially when there is movement of the clouds.  God's Artistry.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Sandy, thanks for posting the site for Chartwell.  It looks like a interesting place for a retiree.  I am sure when Don gets there, he will make new friends and seek new activities.

I've been ill the past week, so I just came to the last page.  i'm sorry if I missed something important, but it takes time to read all of the posts and those in other folders.

Mary Ann, I am so sorry to read that you have been ill. Did you see a doctor ? I don't go to many folders so I can't be much help in all that happens, but I am sure you will be informed of anything vital to know. Janie was attacked by a other words, she missed the last step and severely twisted her back. I am going to make myself go down for lunch.
I am not hungry at all but my son worries if I don't do what I should.

We are having a mild day, high of 85, but I hear my neighbor has her A/C running. we are on the top floor...flat it does tend to feel hot at 85 degrees and and no breeze blowing, so our wall of windows do not offer cooling..

Mary Ann, I hope you are healing quickly....we need you. Hugs and Prayers. June

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


Jane:  Sorry to read about your ladder mishap.  Ladders are scarey anymore.  Mend quickly and totally. 

Radioman Don:  It looks like a lovely place for you with so many choices of what to do - maybe float in the pool today?

Lloyd:  The important thing is no one was hurt in the mishap. 

June:  Your son wants you to keep moving and also have the camaraderie you deserve with your friends in the building.  You are doing a fantastic job of staying upbeat and caring.   :hat:

I have phone calls to make this afternoon and laundry.  It still seems odd to start laundry in the afternoon - we went out for coffee at a bakery - I had a blueberry croissant.  I checked out a consignment shop and will make plans to bring a few do-dads over there one of these days.  Grandson arrives in Minnesota today - it is a long enough drive so he stays overnight in Omaha or thereabouts.  /color]

Mary Ann

June, no I did not see a doctor.  We were going to go to hospital emergency this morning but Annie came to help us and time got away.  Tom said as long as I felt so good (I feel normal!!!), we'd play it by ear and if whatever returned, we'd go.  I have two people here who keep pretty good track of me - Tom and Dot.  Thanks for asking.

That's too bad about Jane.  I have been forbidden to use a ladder by Tom.  I think sometimes he is over protective, but I know it is for my benefit and I listen.  He does so much for me that I can't disobey him!

Mary Ann


To those of you who are telling me not to use a stepladder....let me ask you a question.

If it was pouring out and your roof was leaking and no one returned your calls, would you just sit there waiting for the ceiling to fall in your lap?

I'm sorry to say, I don't wait patiently for disasters if there's anything I can do to prevent it!

I know I'm getting old but I'm not ready to sit around on my duff and let my house fall in on me!  The only one of you I can think of who lives in almost the type of situation I do, is Shirley.  And we all know she doesn't sit on her duff waiting for disasters.

"she doesn't sit on her duff waiting for disasters" ........... :2funny: :crazy2: Truth be, Janie, I stir them up!  So sorry you don't bounce as good as I did..... my pain problems from the "step back" off that ladder was 2 months of plantar fasciitis.  But I do understand ya gotta do what ya gotta do as long as you can. 

Mary Ann, sorry you've been under the weather.  My brother will be 93 Sept.8 & finding it hard to not do everything as usual.  His sons make every effort to take them places, but his wife is only about 6 months older than I am so still drives & tries to keep him from behind the wheel... this has nothing to do with age, he was always a bad driver!   :D

Boiling hot here today, guess it hit the 100 mark but feels even worse, top that off with 40-50 mph winds & doesn't just "feel like", it feels worse.  I had to run to the store to mail my utility bills, discovered them in a heap under another heap & one was borderline past (will be a stretch to get there on time).  While out.... Taco Bell called to me & I finished my spicy tostada & still have 2 tacos to go.  Cats wanted to check weather so pass the laptop on the way back to food.  Tom went out & already back in, Tiger waited until he went into the other end of the house & wanted out.  She gets tired of his rough house play, loves it when I fuss at him for teasing her.  Think a nap might come after finishing those other tacos. 

Lloyd, I understand Nancy's dismay about the damage to your vehicle.... my RV has a boo-boo near the back, on both sides.  Someone got it on the passenger side when left it to have warranty work done, but I let it go... a neighbor pulled into my drive & got the other side about same spot... he called to tell me his insurance would take are of it, but I knew he'd had some claims & good chance they'd cancel his policy, so told him not to worry about it.  MY problem is when people see the places they automatically figure it's MY fault.  I can back that baby right on target with those power posts to plug in, one try!  Would not try that in the dark, I don't go by the back up camera!  Glad you are about to roll... and don't be surprised if those beaches are nothing like you remember.


SHIRLEY, if it was just the step off the ladder I'd be back to work by now.  But when they did the cat scan, they discovered that another problem was causing the pain in the front.  I'm dealing with that too.  Also working on returning my BP to normal.  My friend and neighbor who is a retired RN and now takes care of people in between teaching stints at the Vo-Tech School, is going to do an alternate day check on my blood pressure until it's time for the Dr. to check it again.  She'll also give me "what-for" if it doesn't come down.  Between her and my daughter and another neighbor, it's very hard to stray!

Shirley, I was lucky in the manner I gave up driving.  Annie had totaled Tom's car and mine was the only one available so he drove that for about a year.  My license and insurance were coming up and I didn't want to pay a large insurance bill and I was going to be 92 - so I sold the car.  The license wasn't much, but the insurance was expensive.  I didn't have to be forced to give up driving!

Jane, I had a ladder incident on my 3-step ladder with results much better than yours.  I stepped off the second step as I had done many times (when younger) and lost my balance, went backward toward the cupboard and I don't remember what was there, but I hit it, causing a loud noise.  I assured Tom I was OK and that may have been the time he said he'd like it if I'd stay off the ladder.  Oddly enough the following night I heard a crash in the furnace room and Tom had moved a cupboard and it almost fell on him. 

When we live alone, we have to do what we have to do.  Jane, I just hope you heal quickly.

If it was pouring out and your roof was leaking and no one returned your calls, would you just sit there waiting for the ceiling to fall in your lap?

In the days when I lived in my home alone, I would have called my Fire station. It is surprising what those fellows will do for us. They even rescue cats stranded in trees.
As long as we are here, let's dance.


I don't think they would come and fix my roof, JUNE!  Our fire company is small town and totally volunteer.  If the guys manning the station left and a call came in, I bet there would be trouble.  I think they only employ two people on a full time basis and they have their days off, too.

Must go to bed.  I wish you all a very peaceful night.  The temperature has gone down and it's quite cool out there.  I sat for a bit when I took the doggies out for the last time.  Said my prayers on the porch and sang a hymn or two quietly.  And now I ask God's blessing on all my friends and family.
