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

The national "do-not-call" list does not protect consumers from every type of unwanted phone call. Political organizations, charities and telephone surveyors are free to make unsolicited calls without receiving a penalty, as are any companies or their subsidiaries you may have had a previous business relationship with.

Mary, I am with you as don't like needles stuck into me and have had quite enough with medical procedures.  I had to give myself three shots a week for a year when I was on Interferon for the Hep C, which I got from blood transfusions before they started checking blood for Hep C.

Amy, don't you just love these percentages such as the 90% better than the old pneumonia shot.  So sorry for the need of surgery for your neighbours mom and hope all goes well. 

Phyllis, sure glad to see your posting and know you weathered the storms with no significant damage.  We had no damage from the Hurricane even though the cone came right over Augusta.  It must have picked up wind speed as it got to your area. 

Gloria, it is nice to be done with the high humidity.  It is so nice here that Pat and I plan on going out this afternoon for our main meal.  We have been inside all week except for a few of hours on Wednesday. 

June, I would really be upset if someone wanted to take blood at 2:30 in the morning and don't like it in the hospital when it is usually around 5 am.  Too bad that spoiled your plans for yesterday. 

Jane, at least we will know why you may post less in the next few days.  Just enjoy your family when they get there.  We will still be here when they are gone.  If you wash your curtains I hope your cleaning people will hang them back for you so you can stay off that ladder.  I am worn out just reading of all you have to do in the next few days.     


Larry, we are on the do not call list but they don't pay attention one bit to it. Thank you....I think it is what is after surgery will be the difficult part to get through.

Jane, thank you,j ust got word they are taking his Mom out tonight by ambulance at 9;30 pm.....gosh I am in bed by then. They phoned and said they will stay with Mom till then .I went and brought Rex here for a bit, will take him back after supper. She has a great outlook on this so hope all goes well.

I did get the laundry out blowing on the line and have just brought it back in after a looooooong nap!!! Felt good too! :thumbup:

Just want to say hello and see how you all are doing. 

We have been trying every way possible to find out how our family is coping with the awful situation in Panama City, and finally got a call from Bob‘s sister this morning.  She could only tell us that they are OK.  They have a roof over their heads... No electricity or water and only today were able to use the cell phone.  They have dry and canned food and some drinking water.  They of course have no comprehension of how awful things are there...... they have not been able to get out of their area because of downed trees and power lines, but today she was able to drive to a nearby store that is open to buy a few more supplies. 

One cousin that is in Birmingham has not been able to talk to her daughter at all.  She is getting calls from her, but either the service is so broken they can not hear or there is no connection at all.  Her daughter is the one that owns the store that they keep showing on TV that is damaged so badly in downtown Panama City.   

PHYLLIS, know that I have sure been thinking about you and hoping that things are getting better around your place.  Yes, thank you for asking about Bob’s family..... there are several relatives and friends in the area. His sister, her husband, their son and his wife and son are the closest ones, but many cousins and friends still live there.  The worse part is that they can not contact anyone to let them know how they are.....and as I said, they have no idea of the horrible disctruction as the6 do not have access to TV or anything.  Many are just stranded in place.  We do not own any property there now, so we do not have that worry, but know that one cousin that still lives right there has lost her one has talked to her, but heard that she did get out of there and is staying in another relatives home west of tow; where there was minimal damage. 

I must run, but just wanted to have some contact.

Bob and I did get our flu shots yesterday.....we always get them and have managed to not have any adverse reactions.  We asked about the new shingles shots....we are ON A LIST to have ours but we’re told it may be spring before we will get started with the two of them as they are in such short supply!

My best to you all.



JENNY, saying prayers for your family and all the victims of Michael's devastation!  My heart aches for them!

I finished my list for today and then some.  I'm ready for tomorrow.  I have a list and I'm sticking to it.  It works for me!

Good night my friends!  Sleep peacefully and deeply and wake to a new day.  I wish you smiles!

Good Sunday morning.

I am surprised that I am the first one here this morning.

Jane,   I am thinking that I might be able to get more things done if I made a list.  I think you have a good idea, there.  I plan things but don't always carry through with my plans.  Glad you got a lot done.

I was up around 4 and then decided to just sit in the recliner instead of going back to bed.  I have a heating element in my chair, so I just huddled down under my nice warm fleece afghan and turned the heating element on and it wasn't long before I went back to sleep.  It is really chilly this morning.  But, now I am up, have had breakfast and checking in here.;

My son came last evening and I had asked him to stop and get some dinner for us.  He had some kind of shrimp, scallops on pasta and I had 3 large stuffed shrimp.  It was stuffed with a crab mixture and I only  ate 2 of them, so  will have the other one for dinner tonight, along with most of the leftover salad that came with it.  It was so good.

I want to do some laundry today.  Sunday is a good day as the laundry room is not usually that busy.  I have not done any myself yet, since I have been back home.  My DIL had taken some to do for me, so I will be on my own this time.  THe laundry room is right across the hall from me, so it isn't a long way to go.  I can put it in and  come back to my apt. 

My oldest son and his wife and some other friends are on their way home from a week's vacation in Italy.  I checked the flight and it hasn't  been in the air that long.  They won't get into Dulles until almost 4 this afternoon.  I am always glad when I can see that they have landed.  It usually takes an hour or more to get out of that airport with having to go through customs,  and another hour's drive home.  Dulles is a terrible airport to get into and get out of.

I hope everyone will have a nice Sunday.




Good morning everyone...

I noticed a frost on the ground and the neighbours lovely maple has it's leaves raining down.

I slept in again...this is getting to be a habit!! Plans changed for our neighbours Mom, they took her to the hospital last night and will do another scope this morning. We are looking after their pets today :)

I may get that apple pie that was to be done yesterday made today. Shell is already just need to do the apples and bake.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Brrrr morning everyone. 37° and some frost. Could see it on all the cars when I pulled up the shades. Our maintenance man gets paid for 40 hours a week and on week ends he takes off but his wife or someone must have called him back because he was here yesterday morning he was here and turned the heat on. Much appreciated by all of us with the rain and cold temperatures. If he stays here on the week ends some call him to fix this or do that. They do not seem to realize he is not getting paid then. They own a place in Conn. and that is where he goes on Friday after work. The witch will not pay him for overtime.

LARRY  I try getting outside every day, want some fresh air and some walking. Now that the heat is on in the building we are not allowed to open windows because the heat will go out the windows, even if the thermostats are turned off. So says the witch.

JENNY  it is a worry when you cannot get in touch with family and friends. On the 21st we will get our flu shots here in the building. They will also have the new pneumonia and shingles shots. Nice not to have to go out to get them. All we have to do is put our names on the list down in the laundry room and have our medical cards with us.

JANE  I did sleep good last night and feel rested this morning, first time I feel this good waking in awhile.

JOY  your shrimp sound like something I would love. Like you I like being able to keep track of flights when family is flying.

AMY  with it being darker in the mornings that is why you are sleeping later. That is my excuse.

Have a good day.

Jenny, it is so worrying for you and Bob not knowing about the family.  I do hope that communications in Florida will get better soon and you can finally find out how everyone is doing.  I pray that there will be only good and reassuring news for you.

Rain is coming in today around noon, so they say.  We don't really need it right now but, God's will be done.

Amy, I sure would love a piece of fresh baked apple pie.

Please take care, everyone.


Hi Everyone. It looks like it will be another very pleasant day getting up to around 80 degrees late this afternoon.  It is in the 50's right now.  I am ready for Sunday School and Church and have everything laid out to fix Pat's breakfast when she arises in a few minutes.  As of now I expect she will want me to come home and get her for Church.  We will then go out to eat somewhere.  I will rest when we get home and then watch some more pro football games from the comfort of my easy chair. 

Yesterday afternoon we went to Texas Roadhouse for our main meal.  It was the first time Pat had gone to a restaurant using her Rollator and it worked well.  When we got to the table I folded it up and set it at the end of the table.  Fortunately, the isles were wide.  I did go to my meeting yesterday morning and then stopped at Aldi's as planned.  Unfortunately, neither South Carolina nor Georgia won their college football games yesterday. 

There are quite a few postings since I posted fairly early yesterday morning.  Since I have limited time available this morning I will not attempt to reply to everyone, although each of you are equally important to me, but will try to keep comments brief.

Amy, it has been years since I last slept on sheets that had been hung outside to dry but I can still recall the very pleasant scent that they have as they came off the line. 

Jenny, you sure do have ties to the Panama Beach situation.  Glad that Bob's sister and husband are OK and have a roof over their heads and food and water.  I am sure there are a lot of very anxious people either waiting to hear from friends and relatives that live in those areas or to actually see the damage that has occurred.  I read yesterday about Tinsdale AFB and the terrible damage done there and that families will not be able to return to the housing for sometime until it can be repaired. 

Jane, working from a list is a good way to get a lot of things done and it is a joy to be able to mark off each item as it is accomplished.  It also helps to keep one focused on one task at a time and thus get a lot done. 

Joy, I usually don't see my list as a "must do" that day but as a memory aid that something needs to be done.  A lot of things we want to do don't require immediate attention.  Those stuffed shrimp sound great.  I brought home most of my pulled pork yesterday from Texas Roadhouse as I had filled up on their delicious dinner rolls and then the baked sweet potato was served with a large ball of butter and another of brown sugar.  The brown sugar sort of killed my taste buds and I won't order it again.  I agree that Dulles airport isn't a pleasant place to deal with since you have to get off the plane and into another big vehicle to get to the terminal.  It is also a very busy place. 

Amy, I can almost smell that apple pie baking.  It sure sounds good. 

Gloria, sure glad you now have heat as otherwise it would be pretty cold in your apartment with such a low temperature outside. Nice to see you slept well and are feeling rested today.

well Sunday is a good day to sleep in. my friend Bob came over yesterday and helped me on the motor home getting it ready to hit the road this next has a lot of do's and dont's. and my short brain don't help. i do think I have figured how to work the generator and A C and furnace.
we need the heat now it is cold here may go either way in Arizona this time of year. page may do either hot or cold and Phinecks will be hot. oh well the R V can handle it. I am going to go find somention to eat. have a great day everyone.


Apple pie is done and slices in the hidey cream ,whipped cream or cheese to go with it.  Made up more pastry and will do more pies later. We have the neighbours dog here and he fits in like a well worn shoe. He even likes tapioca!!

Sun is out burning the frost off the grass..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Please excuse my word slurring.  My mouth is full of apple pie.  Thank you AMY.

JOY and LARRY, if I don't make a list I find, when the day is done, that I've forgotten a couple of the really important things I wanted to do.  When I have a list and check things off, I have a feeling of accomplishment.

JOY, when I was returning from Europe with a group of 40 Girl Scouts and leaders, we were the last plane allowed to land at Dulles due to the tail end of a hurricane hitting the area.  Our bus got as far as New Jersey and was not allowed to go any further.  We were stranded at Dulles for 15 hours!  That's an experience I don't want to duplicate!  However, our kids were great!  The youngest was barely 14 and the oldest had turned 18 on the trip.  Not one of them complained and they all made themselves available to watch luggage while Mom took kids to the rest room, run to the restaurants for food for elderly travellers and help people with whatever they needed.  I found out months later that one of the girls spent her last $15.00 on food for an elderly couple and they did not pay them.  Lots of people came over and complimented us on the kindness and good manners of our kids.  An elderly lady in a wheelchair joined our party and I found out later that she had arrived just before we did from Mexico and had no warm clothing.  I noticed that she was wearing a coat that belonged to one our our leaders. I was one proud leader...very tired but very proud!

Now I've finished my lunch and I'm going to do my crossword puzzle and then get on with my list.  I have about 2/3 of the groceries put away and finishing that is next on the list.  Then change clothes and get busy.

Enjoy your day Everyone and enjoy the pie.

Good afternoon, suppose to be the only sunny day this week. it is almost 3 and  andit is still cloudy

Phyllis good  to see you posting. I cannot believe N.C was hit twice. Jenny glad you heard from your family. I cannot imagine not being able to get intouch with family, so few have phone contacts. My DIL was lucky, she also stayed in her house. She said she was 50 miles west of Panama City. I was telling her to go to the AFB,as she is retired AF.  The one in Panama City was whipped out.

Larry, I know Pat will keep on enjoying her rollator. It took me a while,but I take it everywhere,sometimes i do take the cane, if I have a short ways to go

Jane, that was quite and adventure with the GS. I know you were proud of them

Amy thanks for the piece of pie, whipped cream made it taste better

A good Sunday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND.  It is very cold here and we do have snow on the ground.  I am sure thankful I do not have t9 go to a mile High Stadium to watch my Broncos today!  Been there done that way to9 many times.  Now there is not enough $$ to make me leave my recliner and go to a live game!  Yep, I am a sissy😍😍

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the caring comments about our family in Florida.  We also heard from Bob‘s nephew last night.  He was able to drive to Destin to buy gasoline as well as a AT&T telephone as it seems they have the best coverage. He bought food and tarps and nail to help out anyone in need as well as for himself and his family.  He said the workers that have restored power to the area are hero’s!  He said there are so many people out doing what ever they can to help those in need. 

JANE, what a story you share with us today about the conditions after the Girl Scout trip when you returned from Europe.  Heart warming!

GLORIA de, I am so happy your DIL is safe.  Thankfully most that are west of PC BEACH were blessed to not have any sever damage.  I truthfully can not get the carnage out of my mind....there is so many that are suffering and are in need.  We are certainly lucky that our family members still have homes to be in.  Yes, Tyndall AFB is virtually distroyed! 

AMY, that is the best apple pie I think I have EVER tasted!  Thank you for sharing! 

LLOYD, I am soo happy for you and Nancy as you prepare to leave in your new motor home! 

Yummmm, LARRY.  Glad the rollator is working well for Pat and you were able to enjoy a meal at TX Roadhouse.

GLORIA, bless your maintenance man for coming back to get your heat turned on!  Good to read that your flu shots as well as shingle and pneumonia shots are scheduled.  We are going to check around and make sure we can not find a place to get started with the new shingles shot.  We have not heard before that they are in short supply like the pharmacist that gave us our flu shot implied. 

JOY, your meal last night sure sounded yummy...glad you enjoyed it and will enjoy the leftovers today. 

JUNE, goodness, what was the emergency that you had to have a blood draw in the middle of the night?  Shame on that nurse interrupting your precious sleep!  I do hope you are feeling chipper today. 

I am going to go put a pork tenderloin in the oven for dinner.  We like to eat our big meal at half time of the game. 

Enjoy the rest of your day.



It is nice to read eveyrone's notes.  The sun is shining in between heavy showers.  Don is trying to work on our t.v reception - he does not want to pay for someone to go into the attic and put up an antenna in that spot.  Instead, he bought another indoor antenna and wouldn't you know - a former shopper has already used and returned it.  Not a good sign. 

Otherwise, it is good to concentrate on what is good news and how fortunate we are not to be losing house, job and all.  I am reminding myself of the "good" things today. 

Jenny:  So happy that your family is safe.  Our daughter said they had 12 inches of snow at their house - north of DEN. 


Jane, what a nice story about your trip with your Girl Scout troop.  Sounds like the good leadership that was with them had taught them well and they sure proved it by being so helpful.  It is so nice to hear some positive stories about our young people.  So many times they get a really bad rap.  There are lots of good, caring young people out there.  Just don't hear much about all the good things that they do. At least,   it probably helped the time go faster while you were stranded at Dulles.

I have done well today with my "sort of list".  Made time to do 30 min. of leg exercises and getting ready to do 30 more of arm strengthening ones.  I don't have any weights, so the OT has me using cans of spaghetti sauce,  And, they can get heavy after 30 reps.

Also did 2 loads of laundry and got them all put away.  Straightened out a couple drawers while I was putting the clothes away.   I have 4 or 5 tops that I don't put in the dryer hanging in the shower.  These new washers have an drying cycle and most of the things are almost dry when they come out.  So, it doesn't take long for them to dry on hangers.

I am pleased with how much I got done today, and it didn't really seem like the big chore I was expecting.  I am learning to spread my time out and rest in between, instead of trying to do so much at a time.

Jenny,  yes, I plan to enjoy my left over stuffed shrimp.  And, I have enough salad and fresh broccoli to go with it.

I want to watch the Hallmark movie tonight.  They are starting to show their holiday movies.   

Have a good evening.



JOY, you are right about the kids being good ones.  We had our place established around our luggage and anyone who sat, was on the floor watching our luggage.  The kids were all over the place.  There was a very quiet bus on the way home.  I think everyone slept all the way from Dulles to Harrisburg, PA.

I finished my list after I (sort of) cheated a little.  I decided that it would be better to put off rolling the potpie dough until I have a place big enough to do it....namely, the dining room table.The dining room is still stuffed with living room furniture waiting for the carpet to b cleaned on Tuesday.

This left me time for a nap and I must have really needed it because I slept soundly for about an hour and a half.  I did more grocery shopping and putting away today than I do in a month when I'm not having company.  I even bought baby food! 

Now I'm ready to hit the hay!  Tomorrow morning is a WM work day.  Wish me short lines and lots of smiles.  The rest of my list for tomorrow is making dr. appts (2 of them)  for after the gang goes home.

Sleep well, my friends and wake to a happy day.
