Checking in to see how you all are doing?  We are hanging in here, doing our best and I think we have done a good job......HOWEVER, we are very tired and can not wait for the parents to arrive home tomorrow afternoon!  I hope we do not collapse at the sight of them, but I feel like we just might.🤪🤪

Thank you, BUBBLE for our nice new home to share time together in.  Loved your stories for us and I, too, guessed it was the Elephants shadow. 

LARRY, sadly kids do not seem to have spare time to just play.  Konrad plays the drums and Warner is learning to play a violin.  So this takes practice time also and they both have homework every school night.  The nice weather was short lived....Saturday and Sunday only, every other day has been dreary and rainy.  A man showed up today to blow out the sprinkler system.....guess with all the rain there is no need to have to water the grass!

SANDY, happy to read your rollator finally arrived after it’s adventure.  I know you are going to love it.  The height of the handles is such there is no bending over at all.....the big wheels roll so smoothly...have fun driving it tomorrow!

Delays, so I must post this and head to bed.

Pleasant dreams to all. 



Quick son was here and my new DISH receiver is all hooked up.  Not only that, my non-working Video Tape Player is working as is the CDplayer in the same unit.  How lucky can a gal get!

Now I'm off to bed.  Tomorrow is a working day and I wish you all a Good Night and a Good Day Tomorrow.  May God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone...

Rain over night and it could be a rainy day today. Taking hubby for blood work in town this morning then home to clean and chase dust bunnies. May have time to finish up another quilt today too.

Jane, that is so nice of your son to do that for you. Hope you have short tills and smiling customers. Son called from Nebraska ,he is on his way home.

Jenny, isn't it amazing how those little feet can tuckers us older ones out. Makes on wish they had their energy and we did at their age. Guess we just ran it all off as we age.

June, I enjoy rain, the smell the sound and it gives new life to just about everything.

Larry, baking gumdrops don't melt when in baking. I am putting a site in to show you what they look like and there are a lot of great recipes in this site. I want to try the cherry cake one also.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning!  This is a quick one.  I'll be off to work and things to do before I go.  Thanks AMY for the "short line" wish. 

We had a loud thunderboomer storm last night.  It started around 8 p.m and we all thought the rumblies had moved off and we were about to relax when there was a huge crack that sounded like it was right outside the window.  Both dogs headed for  their favorite hiding place under my desk.  And they didn't come out until I begged them out with a treat. 

Today it isn't supposed to rain and it's supposed to get into the high 70s.  My kind of day.  Enjoy yours whatever it brings.

Good Morning everyone. It is 76º and clear here and calling for 88º for  high today. yes Larry may go get the new motor Home today if nothing comes up un for seen.



Good morning everyone, overcast  this AM  59° and pretty dark for 7 in the morning. Was surprised but then with no sunrise to see guess it would be on the dark side. We had a thunderstorm last night about the time I went to bed. My CNA and I got an apple crisp made yesterday, tasted good when I had some in the evening.

AMY  a day late and a dollar short  but I am waving to you this morning. Never heard of baking gumdrops. What do you use them for?

JANE  no Terrible Tuesday here but today is starting as a Weepy Wednesday.

LLOYD  what better way for the first trip that to go visit family. Hope the title gets to you fast so you can get on your way. Drive slow and careful. No lead foot on the gas pedal.

LARRY  if I didn't make a comment to just about everyone here in the SS I would have nothing to say.

CALLIE  loved your post from yesterday. Now we know how you spent your day.

JANE  glad I am not  alone trying to understand directions on some of the new items we get these days. I think the language comes from outer space, MARS? maybe.

JUNE   hope you are feeling much better today.

JENNY  sorry your  trip t o t he Boston area was not more pleasant. as if the grands have not worn you out all the rain we have been having is not pleasant either. How old is Konrad now? I think he and my oldest  great grandson are about the same age. Last time we saw him he was not in school yet.

JANE  can I borrow your son for awhile? I only have my grandson who know about this tech stuff and I am lucky when he finds time to come here.  Working and being on salary he is on call all the time except on vacation, then he shuts off the company cellphone.

AMY  energy? what is that? Wonder if I ever had any, if so it was so long ago I cannot remember it. Ooooh that gumdrop cake looks so good, my sweet tooth is saying "I want".

Have a good day.

Good Wednesday morning.  It is supposed to be another summer day. Temperature in the 80's and supposed to go up to the 90's tomorrow.  I know these kind of days won't last very much longer, but it is so nice not to be dealing with rain and chilly temperatures.  Hope I will get to sit out a little bit.

I  do not have anybody coming today until around 4 p.m. so I have most of the day to myself.

I did get a few more things done yesterday that haven't gotten done since I have been home.  Now, I just need to clean up the kitchen a little bit and get dressed.

Gloria,  I think it is so nice that you manage to answer to most everyone's comments.  Do you take notes as you read along?   I am usually in a hurry and even tho I do read all the messages,  I don't respond as good as I should.  Thank you for being so responsive.  LOL   Your apple crisp sounds so good.  I might have to try to put together something with some apples that I have in the fridge.  Might make some kind of an apple tart.   I have ordered some ice cream from Schwans to be delivered today, so that will go good with the apple "thing".

Do you still get things from Schwan.  I haven't been getting too much from them lately, as I don't have much room in my freezer.  They have little pints of ice cream that don't take up much room.

June, I am glad that you are feeling better.

And, Jane, hope you have an easy day at Walmart today.

And, hope all the other friends have a great day.



Hi Everyone. We have a bright and sunny morning.  We will be in the high 80's again today with little chance of rain.  Pat's breakfast has been fixed and I have grated the pound of cheddar cheese as wanted to use some with her eggs and bacon bits. I have a number of things I want to accomplish today here in my office.  This evening is our Wednesday night dinner at the Church and it is fried chicken week, always a popular meal.  Yesterday we went to the Honey from the Rock Restaurant restaurant at noon and had a great meal.  I had meat loaf, creamed corn and sweet potato casserole with a dinner roll.  The food appears to be made right there and the serving are large.  Their pies look delicious but by the time I finished the main meal I wasn't hungry anymore so was good and by-passed the dessert.  This is the restaurant owned by a Church right next door and the people are so friendly and helpful.  I have to say it is one of my very favorite places to eat here.  It is served cafeteria style and they are open only 3 hours a day at the noon hour. 

Callie, great report and it sounds like it was a busy day.

Jane, glad to see your son got your Dish receiver working as it should and fixed the other things as well.     I think our contract with Dish must be over but hesitate to call about any new equipment we might be entitled to as really don't want the hassle although sure our son would be able to help us as well as he is very good with this type of thing. It sounds like Annie has you well trained to get that food out for her. 

June, glad to see you were up to taking some short walks in your hallway yesterday. I hope you get some rain today. 

Jenny, glad to see that it is now a matter of hours before the boy's parents return from their trip.  Tuck in the back of your mind that "no" is a complete sentence when asked to do things that are becoming too much for you two.  Your family will probably be shocked but sure they will understand that it is just too much for you two.   

Amy, you sure are getting a lot of rain up your way.  One of the things I really enjoy at our Wednesday evening dinners at the Church is watching the little ones constantly on the move since we are seldom around small children. It is also nice not have any responsibility for them.  :) Thanks for the link for the gumdrop cake.  The picture sort of looks like the colors I have seen in fruitcakes.  In my view pound cake needs something to liven it up a bit as it is not one of my favorites. 

Lloyd, I hope you enjoy driving the new motor home and hope you are able to get it today. 

Gloria, apple crisps are good and a little ice cream or whipped cream type topping doesn't hurt anything. 

June Drabek

Good Morning all…….oops, it is 12;30 already. One of those days……

We did have a VERY lite rain….more of a mist, but it is still cloudy so I am hoping for more wetness.

Larry, I intend to take some more walks in the hallway today, I must ! Use it or lose it.

Joy, thank you for your good thoughts. It's up to me….no one can do it for me. As Janie's MY day, to make of it what I want it to be.

Gloria, my dear friend…..still not me, but with God's help, I'll get there.

Amy, I feel as you do about the rain…the smell, the sound, and how our thirsty earth out here in So. Ca. would love to drink it up.

Time to go sligger up my cheese Pizza, and get on with the day. See you all later. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


SLIGGER???  I never heard that word!  And neither did my computer because it wants to fix it.  However, I do like the sound of it!

It wasn't such a hard day today.  I've made a change in how I move behind the register in the last few weeks and it seems to have made a difference in how I feel at the end of the day. 

GLORIA, I'd be happy to lend you my son to fix some of your technical stuff but I'm afraid you are so far away, his business and his family would suffer.  He sells and repairs TV, etc and all kinds of appliances.  He's third generation doing that job.  His grandfather opened the business in the early 50s when his father and I were juniors in high school.  Before that, my FIL was an inspector on the line in the Westinghouse TV assembly plant down the road from here.  He also repaired TVs and radios out of his home.  I forget when the Westinghouse plant closed but it was after he left and opened his own business.  My husband went to school to learn how to repair TV and then got the good stuff from his father.  My son worked in the store from the time he was big enough to carry his end of an appliance or tv for delivery.  He has a plus going for him though.  He has a college degree in accounting too and is probably responsible for keeping the business going through the hard times.  He's made a lot of changes and there are lots of people in the small towns around here who won't by an appliance from anyone else.

JUNE, you're right about me saying the day is yours.  You have to make it your own by what you do with it.  We're all different and we all make the day our own. 

JENNY, saying "no" gets easier and easier.  I love having my family around but I don't take the responsibility any more.  If they come to stay with me, we all do the "entertaining" together.  The last time daughter Christy and granddaughter Frankie were here, we were getting breakfast and Frankie decided that we would have eggs.  I said, "That's fine but your mother will make them.  She's always been better at it than I am."  From the next room Christy said, "That's OK with me but Mom has to make the toast.  She butters it so it's ALL buttered."  Together we made a good team.  Frankie did the serving and the dishes after. 

Enough now!  I've blabbered on and one.  JOY, I'm happy to see you posting.  NOW WHERE"S PHYLLIS!  I tried emailing her.  No answer!  Does anyone have a contact?

Thanks, Jane, for thinking of me.  As a matter of fact my house did
suffer some damage from Hurricane Florence and I'm now in the process of
going through insurance claims and setting up dates for work to be done
by  a roofing company.  Thankfully, the damage is not extensive but I
will need a new roof and some repairs to the ceiling upstairs.  This is
not something I enjoy at all but really can't complain because so many,
many people to the south and east of me lost everything.  And, some are
still without power and easy road access to their neighborhoods.  It is
going to take a long time to get everything back to normal.

I hope to come back to S&F again soon.  I miss "chatting" with old
friends.  Hope you are doing well, too.

Jane, thanks for posting your e-mail from Phyllis.  It is good to hear that she is OK.

Mary Ann


Glad you let us know, Jane..... We have storm damage so often here in Kansas, kind of hard to think of other states having so many different types of damage.  Roof damage we understand.... 3 new ones in the first 6 or 8 years in this house & that last (4th)time we opted for "lifetime" .... #4 rating for insurance. 

Sympathy running over for you, Phyllis.... lots of work involved, even if insurance takes care of most of the bills.

We have storms predicted starting by midnight & the next few days.  Tom is nervous already.  Callie came in for her "snack" but wanted back outside, not in the garage.  She takes care of herself, such a sweet cat. 

I finally found the last item lost.... my bright red (orange inside) skillet .... thought I took it in the RV to CO but never found it & couldn't find it in my kitchen cabinet..... until today I put on my "head light"... you've seen the camping/mining types that have about 4 or 5 brightnesses .... picked those bright colors out in the dark cabinets, buried under a pile of other kitchen tools... pots & pans shoved to the back.   ::)  Some day I need to clean out those cabinets.... did it a few years ago.   

June Drabek

Janie, maybe it is schligger. It was my husbands word if I recall correctly, and he was Polish, so nothing he said surprised me.

Today  was a better day, but I'm still not me. I did go down to the Clinic and asked about getting the flu shot on Friday..nurse said, Yes..get the shot. They took my vitals….all o.k. but she planned to call my doctor and ask her to request some tests since I have felt punk for over two weeks now.

I pray you all have a peaceful night, and Phyllis, special prayers on the needed work on your home. I am so glad you are O.K. Hugs, Love, and more prayers. June

It's late but I'm here!

Today was "ditto" up through eating breakfast.   Then I had a podiatrist's appointment, picked up a med refill and stopped at the post office to pick up a letter I wasn't home to sign for yesterday.  Made three other stops because I thought of them as I was driving.

I realized I really had gone "all around the town" because our major streets are one mile apart and my route was exactly 3 miles east, three miles north, three miles west and three miles south.

One of the stops was to get 3 rather large pots of yellow mums in bloom.  I got one into each of the planters in my front flower bed but digging out the roots of former plants to make a hole big enough to just set the mum pots in wore me out - even though I sat on my garden cart to do the work. 
So I put the third one on the patio and will get it into a planter in the back yard some time before The Big Rains that Shirley's sending this way get here on Friday.

Am now on the way to read a while before "hitting the hay".

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere a peaceful restful sleep and pleasant dreams.


Well, my Versa Fitbit is refusing to tell me how I slept... but awake so cats fed and now it's Shirley's turn.  Rain started about midnight, didn't hear a lot of thunder or see lightning, but the radio says over half an inch.  We need it. Back to sleep.........Your flowers sound pretty, Callie.


I'm up and attem this morning.  I have to make dog food but I don't want the girls begging to do cleanup until their pill time is up so I'm waiting until there is only 20 minutes left.

CALLIE, if you got back from your travels at 3 p.m. you really did do the "threes" yesterday!  It must have been your lucky number.

I wish you all a good day.  It's yours!  Grab it and make it your own.  Do what you wish with it but enjoy doing it!

Good morning everyone...

We were awake around 4  am, thunder and lightening started and then the rain. Snuggled back down into the bed and slept in again :)

I was amazed that hubby was in and out of getting  his blood work done. He said no one was in there at that time so now we know when to go and avoid the rush.

General work about the house today and hope to get some sewing done. We are also looking after the neighbours dog, his Mom is back in the hospital.

Jane,  I can't imagine what Phyliss is going thorough with all the damage from the storm. Thank you for getting in contact with her and lets pray she is back here soon.

Better go get ready for the day

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning, Amy, Shirley and Jane.

Kind of a foggy, gray morning here .  Still the sun is predicted to come out and turn it into a warm "summer" day.  Temperatures are suppose to go down for a few days, and then return to "summer" the first part of next week.   Those days will be  most welcomed, however few they will be.

June,  I hope your doctor will order some tests to find out why you are feeling so "dragged out".  Just not like you to not be feeling good.  But, you still are able to greet us and that is most welcomed.

Shirley, I  was up way too early and planned to go back to sleep, but wasn't to be.  So, up I got and made use of the early day to make the bed, put some dishes in to soak, had my breakfast and in here for a little bit.

I am expecting the PT around noon, so that will give me most of the rest of the day to be my own.  The OT did tell me yesterday, that next week will be her last time to come.  I am hoping the PT and the nurse visits will be over with soon.  They all tell me that I have progressed very well and seem to be doing as good as I was before I got sick.  I feel the same way.

I hope all our friends will have a great day,




Hi Everyone. It is to be another beautiful mostly sunny day getting up to around 90 degrees.  I had difficulty sleeping last night and didn't get much sleep.  This will be a busy morning usual Thursday morning.  Pat put in a Walmart grocery order that I expected to pick up at the Walmart close to where I take my friend home.  However, when I looked at the reply back I found she had forgotten to switch the locations from the one over in Georgia, about 25 minutes or so away, to the closer store.  It was too late to chance it and it isn't a difficult drive up to Evans to get it I will do that after coffee.  I am hoping that the man who picks up my friend on Tuesdays and takes him to coffee will be there this morning as I know he will take him home and then I can go on to Walmart directly from coffee.  We did have a nice time at the dinner last night at the Church and then a good visit with Scott afterward.  I think he was shocked when he got here and I told him we had no chores for him to do for us. 

I am going to brief in my comments today as am a bit rushed this morning. 

Jane, do many people now have TV repaired?  I can certainly remember when they used tubes and repair was quite common.  They have come a long way. 

Sorry to read that Phyllis had damage to her home but it can be repaired and she didn't have to vacate from it and has power.  Jane, thank you for contacting her and sharing her reply to you. 

Shirley, you have given me another visual image of you to go with the little lady speeding in the mountains and getting pulled over.  That is rummaging in your cabinets with the minor lamp.  Glad your mining was successful and you found your skillet. 

June, glad you went to your clinic as you had been feeling better. 

Callie, I bet those yellow mums are beautiful. 

Joy, I only got around 3 or 4 hours of sleep last night.  No particular reason but couldn't turn my mind off. 


Well, I got the dog food made and another pack of chicken chopped for the next time.  I made an omelet for me for breakfast and fed the dogs.  Cleaning up the kitchen probably took the longest.  There''s a small amount of chopped chicken waiting to be turned into chicken salad for lunches and a couple of eggs to become pickled eggs.  Also two small packs of chicken marinating in the the fridge to become dinner.  And the kitchen is all cleaned up.

I have a little laundry to do this morning and this afternoon I pick up Kiran after school.  My kind of day.  I love having Kiran and cooking relaxes me if I'm not rushed.

LARRY, they do repair TVs these days but instead of exchanging a couple of tubes, they switch out a circuit board.  It's not as easy as it sounds but they are easier to keep on hand than tubes were.  They take up a lot less space.  That's why your TV doesn't take up as much space in your house any more.

AMY, isn't it neat when you get in and out faster than you expected.  That happened to me the last time I went to the dentist.  I got there early and he had a cancellation right before me so I was in even before my appt. was due and out about 10 minutes after I should have been going in. 

Now I'm going to go do my crossword puzzle and whatever else strikes my fancy.  There's a little laundry to be done and I might start the washer before the puzzle.  Have a great day Everyfriend.  Make it your own in every way!

I'm here....but only briefly.  Thanks, Jane, for emailing me.  You are a good friend and I appreciate your (and everyone else's) concern very much.

The dealing with the insurance company and the roofing contractor is grinding on slowly.  I do not like handling things such as this when I am not always certain of what I am supposed to do.  I try to ask a lot of questions and pray that I am doing the right thing and that in the end all will have gone well. 

I must get on with my day.  I'll be back soon.

Good Morning everyone. well I always read every thing all the post, but short time memory is not as good as it should be, so do not retain it as i should do.
I have said lot of times I do not believe in re-carnation but if it is real I want to come back as a rich woman's dog. Jane is a good example of why read what she dose for her dog's. we feed our dog Lucky good (to good) she is too fat like I am. If I had enough will power and loose some weight I could breathe easier.
Larry friend Bob has been doing the the inter Net for us and now has the bill of sale marked paid for. so maybe may pick it up and bring home today. and get started getting it packed ready to hit the road some time next week. Have a great day



LLOYD, if you think my doggies live with a rich lady, you are sadly mistaken.  I go out of my way, timewise, to make sure they are well taken care of but I'm NOT rich!  Once could only wish!  And I'm not really sure I'd want to be RICH!  I manage!

Good morning everyone, so tired of rain and more rain. When I woke t his morning I had a hard time getting out of bed. I will be glad when my CNA gets here later and can massage my back again.

JOY  I use notepad to write on as I go along reading here. I think it comes installed in all computers. I have not ordered from Schwans in several months.

LARRY  you are right, warm apple crisp with cream or ice cream is perfect.

JUNE  right we have to do what we can or just vegetate.

JANE  don't think I would move to your area to have your son work on the lemon I have for a PC. LOL with the buttered toast, who wants dry edges? not me.
Thanks for letting us know about Phyllis.

SHIRLEY  your cabinets sound like mine.

CALLIE  love mums, any color, add beautiful color at this time of year.

AMY  I did not get up till 9:30 this morning, don't like being in bed that long, get so stiff it is hard to move.

JOY  we had about 5 minutes of sun yesterday and it is still not shining this morning.

PHYLLIS   seeing you here this morning made my day. I never say much about missing one of our family  but I have missed you.

LLOYD  you must be in a hurry to pack up and start traveling. I wish you and Nancy many happy years traveling with the RV.

Another quiet day for me. Had a good nights sleep, thanks be to God. A few odd aches and pains..age does have it's way, but we can ignore it, as much as possible.

Woke to a beautiful sky...broken clouds with pieces of sharp, bright sunshine trying to have it's space. It made it out for a while, now some puffy white ones with soiled feet are pushing their way in. God has such a wonderful sense of humor with His handling of Nature.

I think I will take one more day off and order lunch sent up, and the serving size is so large, it will take care of supper too.

Right now the body wants to lie down for a bit, so I will oblige. See y'all later.  :hugs: June

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


Well, right after I gave Annie a bath, there was a knock on my door and the groomer was standing out there.  I thought she was due next week and I was going to give both dogs baths.  She took Annie from me and dried her with her dryer then gave Mickie a bath and a haircut.  Now Annie's getting a haircut. 

By the time she leaves and I get some snacks for the doggies and lunch for me, it'll be time to go get Kiran.  Then the fun really begins.  I have the doggies stuff in the washer and dryer and that's all the laundry I'm doing today. 

Gloria, my son isn't the one who works on my computer.  That would be my daughter when she's here or my granddaughter when she's here.  You have to move to Texas or Baltimore for one of them.  My son fixes appliances, microwaves, etc. and he climbs ladders and moves heavy stuff and fixes my TV.  Sometimes he cuts a hunk out of my tree so the DISH can catch the signal.

Next week he's going to clean out my gutters. 

I think my "Grooming Geek"  (that's what she calls herself) is almost finished.  I hear the vacuum cleaning up the last of the doghair.  And Annie just ran past the office door.!  Later 'gators!

Good evening friends. I n case any of you would Like to see our motor home here is the best way I know for now. go to( purple wave) web sight and look for freightliner holiday rambler 1997, there most likely will two show up and one will say sold that is ours, then you click on the picture of it and it will let you look at it all around in and out. it has all new tires with low miles on them.



Lloyd, I did look up your new motor home and it sure does look nice.    I wish you many happy years of traveling in it,.   that was an interesting site,  I am assuming that you bought it without actually seeing it???  They sure did give you a lot of very good pictures and everything looked very nice.   Happy Trails to you and your wife.   

We were long time campers, and we had every kind of camper except a Fifth Wheel.  Started out in a boy scout tent and ended our traveling days in a travel trailer,  My favorite was our Pop-Up, but that was not very convenient when we traveled across the US.  We used it mostly when we went to the Outer Banks .

We had many great trips and met a lot of nice people.   You will find campers to be very friendly and very helpful.
