Soda Shoppe

for October 1, 2018




My niece was dragged into court by a neighbor who complained about her barking dogs. At one point, the judge asked the neighbor a question.
The neighbor didn’t reply.

“Sir, are you going to answer me?”

The neighbor leaped to his feet. “Are you talking to me?” he asked. “Sorry; I can’t hear a darn thing.”

The case was dismissed.

“Has your diet changed?”
I asked an 87-year-old woman I was admitting into the hospital.

“Yes,” she said. “For Lent, I gave
up whipped cream on my Jell-O, hard candy, and my two beers a night. [Pause]

And look where it’s gotten me.”



I'm the size of an elephant, but I weigh nothing. What am I

Please find the answer.

Good morning everyone.....
Bubble thank you for the new start page, lovely graphic and great jokes! We are of to the city this morning, Have many questions for the Dr. to answer and I would like a script for the new shingle vaccine.
Yesterday was really a lazy day ,I even managed to sneak in a nap. Used the Instant Pot to do a roast and it came out as tender as can be.

Gloria, yes, they were bear cubs, so innocent looking and scarred!

Jane ,happy to read that you will be on days now. I don't care to drive in the dark anymore. There have been times we have had no choice but I still don't like it.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning, Amy and all who follow.

I hope your trip into the city will be without any big problems.  Hope you get all your questions answered. 

My doctor was talking to me about getting the shingles shot.  She told me that I would have to get it at a pharmacy,  Something about the insurance companies and doctors not being able to get it.  I was surprised by that.  I have to talk to my oncologist about what he thinks.  I had the shingles several years ago.

Jane, I know you  will be happy not to have to work in the evenings now.  The days will be getting shorter, so you will not be driving in the dark.

It is supposed to be a nice week with temps in the 80's .   Maybe there are a few summer days left.

I have the OT and the PT coming today.  Won't be able to get my hair done today, as the times will conflict.  The gal only comes to our place on Monday's so, I will have to wait until next week now.  I do not have any place to go this week, so I will have to manage it the best I can.  I just had it cut last week, so that makes it easier.

I hope everyone will have a good day.



Good Morning Everyfriend!  I've been up a bit and took care of the doggies pills (we're waiting for the boinger)  and put the dishes away out of the dishwasher.  I still have to make dog food but if I make it too early they think it's time to eat it. 

Bubble, I'm with AMY on the guess.  I think it's the elephant's shadow.  The only reservation I have is that his shadow could very well be MUCH BIGGER than the elephant.  I'm still thinking on this one.

It could be a cloud?  No, I'm going to stick with his shadow!

I have to make a quick trip to the grocery store for 2 things I forgot yesterday and then I'm going to see about covering the porch furniture, clean up the yard and take the trash to the dumpster.  And that's my day!

I hope yours is better and more fun!

Good morning everyone, 56° this morning. warmer than yesterday.

JOY  glad you got the new rollator and have the bigger wheels. I don't think they had the bigger ones when I got mine.Like you I have a pouch under the seat and it is handy

LARRY  like you I like a hard crispy tart apple. Just picked from the trees are what I really enjoy, Got spoiled with the apples from my son's trees. Of course before he planted them I would go to the farm I like and pick apples there. Glad Pat is happy with her rollator.

JANE  wish I could get a taste for fish. About once a year I like to go out for fish and chips (french fries), think I like the chips and the coating on the fish more than the fish.

GLORIA de  I imagine the kids enjoyed those nature walks.

JENNY  my son has started getting rid of all those trees. He said he will keep only a few for the family. Does not want to go through all that work anymore. A the end of this month he and my DIL will take off for Arizona to visit my daughter for a couple of weeks. My daughter is really looking forward to their visit. Remember when Joan visited Joe when he and Kate lived near Boston? Not enough time to meet her either. I don't drive anymore and my sons are too busy to take me there.

JUNE  hope you feel much better today.

BUBBLE  love your graphic for this month. Fist glance wondered what the man had under his nose and then saw the knight? I like looking at graphics like that to see how many different things I can pick out, Thanks for our new blank page to fill up in October.

AMY  I saw something on TV a few  years ago where bear cubs got inro a dumpster and mama bear was pacing around it. One brave man put a ladder into it and they climbed out. Mama watched him like she knew he was helping.

Have a great day.

Hi Everyone. It is a beautiful clear and sunny morning.  However, it is to be a mostly cloudy day with a high of 84.  I did come home from Sunday School yesterday and got Pat for Church.  Following Church we went to the Sunshine Grill, a favorite little local cafe that has really good old-fashioned hamburgers cooked on a grill.  It came with potato salad and we had to wait just a few minutes as they had to make more potato salad and when it was served it was warm and very tasty.  I came home and rested and then watched a the end of one football game and then the full game that followed.  It was a nice quiet afternoon.  Today will just be staying busy in my office this morning and then after lunch resting as usual and then a quiet later afternoon and evening.  As of now there is no plan to leave the house today other than to the mailbox late this afternoon. 

Jane, what a great idea for your granddaughter to shop online and save you having to do it other than pick it up. 

deAngel, maybe you will have a quieter week this week.  Nice to have a pizza parlor close by.  It was nice of Mark to take his children on nature walks. 

Jenny, do your grand boys have time in their busy schedule to actually play?  Sometimes I wonder if our children today are not pushed too hard to be involved in too many things that they have little time to just be children.  Glad you are finally getting some nice weather while you are there.  How much longer will you be babysitting?

June, sorry you were not able to get to Church but it sounds like you were wise and avoid the risk of falling. I hope today finds you feeling better.   

Bubble, thanks for the new start and the graphics.  I must say those get ones attention.  Is the first done representative of Don Quixote and the second Paul Revere alerting that the British are coming? I liked the funnies you shared but have never been good at riddles so didn't have a guess. 

Amy, I hope you can get the new shingles vaccine.  I have had the first of the two shots now required and will have the second when I get the second flu shot in a few weeks.  With all the wild animals you have up there I would think night driving would be pretty dangerous regardless of age of the driver. 

Joy, we have the same situation here in terms of getting the shots at the pharmacy.  I expect that is a bit of a distraction for the pharmacist but at least at Walmart they get to sit down for a few minutes, certainly something they can't do behind the counter. They just have a screened area in front of the pharmacy counter here at the Walmart but they told me the other day that they expect to have a private room in which to give the injections one of these days.

Gloria, it has been so long since I had an apple just picked from the tree that I have forgotten how good they probably were.  I used to try to eat a whole apple almost everyday with my lunch but now usually have a half apple that I had cut up into small pieces as don't like to bite into them and risk my front teeth.  Nice your son and his wife will be going to visit your daughter in Arizona.   


answer to the question:  An elephant's shadow.  Bravo Amy and JaneS.  A++!


Merry Monday and Happy October Oneth, Everyfriend,

The bad penny turns up again!!   :peepwall:

All is well in my little part of the world.     Weather in central Oklahoma is bouncing back and forth from mid-summer temperatures to almost-winter levels.  Reminds me of an old Peter, Paul and Mary song about a drag race which includes the line "the engine was internally hemorrhaging".  I think we could say the same about our a/cs and furnaces. :D

Miss Ellen's parents are going to NYC later this month to see her in a production of "Cabaret".
Other son/wife are going scuba diving.
I'm staying home!!!!   :thumbup:

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable day - week - month - etc.



Just have a minute before work to say...

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Great day today!

My Drive Nitro Rollator  was delivered
today.     It is awesome...  Tomorrow I
will take it for a walk down to CVS...   

I am hoping this will make me feel more
secure when walking around the city.

As I mentioned,  it got side tracked and ended up
in California  (home base) but it has finally
survived a trip to the North East.     

What a relief..  :smitten:

June Drabek

My  thanks to you Gloria and Larry for your good wishes. I'm still on the droopy side...not falling down, but not too steady, So I'm staying home, reading, resting, having one meal a day delivered to my Apt.  The tray just arrived, so I will go and enjoy. I have food I could use, but that would need dishes, and I don't want to work.

/So good to see you posting Callie. You must be SO proud of your Miss Ellen
As long as we are here, let's dance.


JaneS,  I'm around every day but would only have to post "activities" (or lack thereof) once a week and then just say,  "Ditto".
The picture of your Tulsa baby is just precious.  If I were up to it,  I'd zip up I-44 and give her a cuddle.

Sandy,  Hooray for the rollator!   We'll have to tie a bell on you to keep up with where you are!  ;)

Thanks, June.  I am proud of Miss Ellen - not only of her ambition but because she is taking full advantage of living in NYC and having lots of neat "adventures".   :smitten:

Bubble,  love your "take" on Don Quixote.  ;D

#2 son is coming for dinner (dil has other plans).   Off to the kitchen.....


I'm home from my LAST evening shift at WM for this year!  Thank goodness.

CALLIE, I think we could probably all say the same thing about our day-to-day lives.  Sometimes, I feel like I'm saying the same thing over and over and why would anyone care and then someone goes missing and I realize that this is a FRIEND.  Maybe I never met her face-to-face and maybe I never will but she's a friend in every sense of the word.  And if I don't see her posting and know that she's up to the same things she always enjoys, I feel just a bit sadder.  Do you understand what I'm trying to say?  Does anyone understand?

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


I understand, Janie, and agree.  Sweet dreams and God Bless...   :hugs: :metoo:


I agree with you, also, Jane.  And, I can say that very easily now that I have experienced what you are talking about.  It is such an uplifting feeling just knowing that people you don't hardly know, do miss you. 


Lloyd Hammond

Good Morning everyone. Peter I enjoyed our short visit this am. very pretty young  Lady your grand daughter. you should post those links of your grand daughter here in S & F. Have a great day one and all.



Good morning everyone, 54° and drizzly right now, thunderstorms in the forecast for later today. Wonder if Mother Nature is mad at Tuesdays, this is the 4th Tuesday in a row with rain. At least it is not snow.

LARRY  since my son and DIL are both retired they can take 2 weeks to go visit my daughter. When they were both working they only had 1 week vacation and that is never enough time. I can no longer bite into an apple and have to cut them.

CALLIE  like you I am  staying home. My traveling days are over.

SANDY  hope you enjoy your rollator as much as I like mine.

JANE  I know what you mean,when a member of our cyber family is missing I wonder if they are OK. We have had a few that suddenly stop posting and at times I wonder what happened to them and if they are alright.

LLOYD  when are you going for your first trip with the new motor home? 

Goodness where is everyone this morning?

Good morning everyone..

Waving madly at you Gloria. :) I slept in, sleep was elusive last night so I made up for it by sleeping in. :thumbup:

Yesterday went well, I did get the script for the shingle shot and the Dr is looking into it to see if hubby can also take this one.

We stopped at Bulk Barn and I loaded up on baking gumdrops and other baking needs, I had a 25% off coupon to use.

Sorry for the short reply but VON will soon be here and I need to get things ready for her.

Jane so glad to hear no more nights for you at work!

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  If the rest of the day develops like this part of it, it's going to be a humdinger! 

Gloria, we're supposed to get rain this afternoon, too.  I wonder if it's because it's Tuesday.  I wonder what CALLIE does on Tuesdays?  I hope she's not having a "Terrible Tuesday".

I hope none of you are having a "Terrible Tuesday".  Make it a good day!

Gloria Not sure haven't got the title it is supposed to be in the mail to us. when we get it we will go pick it up and bring it home clean and stock it and take off right away. hope things go to gather right away. I am getting ready to do so right away. looks like maybe next week some time. we plan to go to Page Arizonian first by the glean canyon dam where my brother lives in and close to the on reservation where our son and his wife live, she is full blood Navajo. then on to Boise Idaho where our grand son there son Lives. he is a fireman. Have a great day.


Hi Everyone.  It looks like we will have another nice with some possibility of rain later this afternoon.  My schedule is light this today.  I thought Pat had placed a Walmart grocery order that I would pickup nearby this morning but don't see any email that it is ready so that may not have happened.  A friend will be here for an hour later this morning and that is all that is on the schedule that I know of now.  Pat made some delicious enchiladas for our dinner last evening and there was enough left for three more meals later on.  They will go into the freezer for now.

Callie, nice to see you back.  It sounds like your family is staying busy.  Good for Miss Ellen in getting the part in Cararet.  You need not worry about repetition as most of us wouldn't have much to write about if we didn't talk about our days that are like other days.  I firmly believe it is not the words but the being a part of this cyber family that is important.  Jane has said what I mean much better than I have been able to.  Thanks Jane. 

Hi Shirley,  hope all is OK out your way. 

Lloyd, I see you expect to get your new motor home soon and have your first trip planned.

Gloria, I think there are quite a few of us whose traveling days are behind us.  I can visualize us taking only one more trip and that is if something happens to Pat's sister, who isn't well.  Even then I don't know whether Pat would want to go back.  Our airport is easy to get to but the Kansas City Airport is more difficult to deal with and the car rental places are off site. 

Amy, nothing wrong with sleeping in.  What are baking gumdrops?  That Bulk Barn sounds great. 

June, glad you are having a good meal delivered to you once a day when you don't feel like going downstairs to eat or fixing something yourself.  It is important to eat. 


Okay - here goes with the Tuesday Report:

Woke up when radio went on.
Did isometric neck exercises.
Took morning meds.
Went out to get the paper.
Read the paper.  Circled t.v. shows I want to watch or record tonight.
Checked e-mail and messaging on Facebook.  Responded.
Got dressed.
Ate breakfast.
Went to get a hair trim.
Went to Batteries and Bulbs to get watch batteries and rechargeable batteries for solar garden lights.
Ate lunch.
Watched season premiers of "This Is Us" on-line because I missed it on t.v.
Made sliders.
Getting ready to go get the mail.
Will read e-books until evening news comes on.
Plan on having left-overs from dinner fixed for son/dil last night.
Then watch t.v. until  :sleep:

Hoping Everyfriend Everywhere is having an Enjoyable Day.


WOW!!  I loved it, CALLIE!  Thanks for the update.  I wish my day had been similar.  Mine involved the vacuum and some instructions for hooking up a new DISH receiver that I don't understand at all.  I don't even know what language they're speaking.  I think it's  "techrecieverese".  I didn't understand a word of it.  My son is on the way over to clean up my mess.  But there are no dead bugs or dust under my TV stand any more!

It will soon be time to feed the doggies.  Annie has already begun her pitiful hunger whine.  Once she really gets in gear, I have to MOVE!

Enjoy the rest of your day, Everyfriend!

After reading all your inspiring posts, I added my rather dull two cents worth,touched the wrong key, and post went out there in cyber space. No problem, it was not that important. I should be writing on Notepad instead of here. I took a few short walks in the hallways today....must get my strength and attitude back in shape.

Weather channel for Stanton says some rain for tomorrow. How I would welcome that !!!!!!

I am going to go downstairs and check my mail box now. Had no mail at all last week, so I should have this months rent bill awaiting me. It is already automatically paid, but I still like to review it.

Have a Blessed night and a great tomorrow. June
