Q: Which fruit is a vampire's favorite?

A: Neck-tarine!


Halloween is the beginning of the holiday shopping season. That's for women. The beginning of the holiday shopping season for men is Christmas Eve.

â€"David Letterman


An old guy walks into a bar and the bartender asks for ID.

"You've got to be kidding," he said. "I'm almost 60 years old."

The bartender apologized, but said he had to see the license.

The guy showed his ID, then paid and told the bartender to keep the change.

"The tip's for carding me," he said.

The bartender put the change in the tip cup.

"Thanks," he said. "Works every time."


BUBBLE!!!  Where did you get that picture of ME??? I've got to get a new hat. Great collage of Halloween, can keep looking and seeing something new. Thanks for cleaning up & the funnies.  Tom (cat) has been waking me up this time every morning so last night I closed him in the other end of the house from the bedrooms & I woke up anyway.  Going to have a bite to eat & go back for more zzzzzzzzzs.

We had snow on the ground when I went to sleep but all gone now. (3:00am)  Our temp is 34 degrees but "feels like" 15.  Have 2 hoses still connected so hope they don't realize the "feels like" or I may have bigger problems.  Still haven't drained the RV, either, or winterized & covered the pool. Can't get caught up.


Shirley! You have been framed! lol
Good luck with finishing all these tasks. You really are a busy woman.


Good Morning Everyfriend!  The doggies have been out and had their pills.  So we're waiting for the boinger!

SHIRLEY, I never knew you and I look so much alike.  I really thought that picture was me at first glance.  I'm sure glad you straightened me out on that one.

Can't make my phone calls this early so I'll go do my crossword puzzle and play a little solitaire while I wait for the boing.  Enjoy your day, Everyfriend.  Greet it with a smile and grab it and make it yours!  Do whatever suits your fancy!

Shirley we are new at this motor homing you best come by and help us out soon. we were planing on starting out Wednesday for AZ. we were going to fill the water tank with fresh water. I thought when you were traveling in cold weather you turned the furnace on and the ownen generator to keep it running. looks I need help from you. we was planing on going to Page AZ, it gets gold up there also and we can't afford to go and stay to Phoenix. I suppose we could stop by your twenty on the way if you aren't too busy to help. you could get in and go with us if you like. we went to daughter and sil. yesterday to grand daughter's birthday party. today is her birthday she turns 25. she was putting on about getting old. we had a very good feed. and they made a icecream cake. that sure helped my sweet teeth. i don't a sweet tooth
I have a whole mouth full of them (sweet teeth).



Good morning everyone..

Not as cold today but it does warrant a fire on . No frost but temp is 38° and foggy at the moment.

I am feeling a lot better this morning and just maybe I can tackle the jobs that need to be done after VON is gone. Also need to take garbage to the dump.

Lloyd, can you google your questions and see what others have done to their motorhomes? That might help you with some information too.

Jane, did you get any information on your insulation or did I miss it?

Bubble, thank you for a new start page....cute..and cute jokes..

Here is another one for you.

What kind of pie does a ghost like?

BOOberry pie !

Better go get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day everyone.

 Amy I probable could but that way I would not be able to see Shirley in person once again and Nancy has not seen her yet, so could so to speak could kill two birds with one stone. we are going to do some more getting the R V ready today
if don't plow any snakes we plan on being ready and take off Wednesday. Have a great day everyone.



Good morning everyone 38° now but weather gal just said will be in the 60s this afternoon and by the end of the week will have out first killing frost. Big news in Providence this morning. school bus drivers went back to work this morning so kids are back to school. Odd when I lived in Providence we didn't have school buses we either walked or paid fare to ride a bus to school when the weather was bad or really freezing.

PHYLLIS  like you we don't need more rain but it is in the forecast for this afternoon and again at the end of this week.

LARRY  like you it has been years since I had sheets dried in the fresh air.

AMY  my older son's wife has been making tapioca pudding for me and sends it with my son when he comes here. She is due here this morning to cut my hair. She really is the second daughter I always wanted. Your pie is delicious with a good flaky crust.

JANE  your group of girl scouts were all good kids to help others like they did.

JENNY  we were all happy to see our maintenance man here yesterday morning. Of course the witch most likely chew him out when she comes in today.

JOY  when I had my right shoulder replaced the therapist I had made it fun. I have 2 pound weights but could not pick one up so asked if I had any cans and ended using a can of squash pie filling. At the end my daughter came from California and she made a pie and when he got to the house he was treated to pie and coffee, that was also his last time to be there.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new "book" to fill up. Oh boy, Halloween is coming fast. Great graphics and jokes.

SHIRLEY  hope you get to the job of getting ready for winter PDQ.

LLOYD  I am with you having too many sweet teeth. Have a safe trip in your motor home.

AMY  guess I am not a ghost, rather have blueberry pie instead of a BOOberry one.

Have a good day.

Hi Everyone. Our summer weather is returning for a couple of days as we expect to get into the mid-80's this afternoon.  However, it is nice and in the low 60's this morning but it soon warms up.  I expect to have a quiet Monday at home with nothing special on the agenda.  Pat did join me for Church yesterday and then we went out to the Sunshine Grill for our lunch.  She did use her Rollator for the first time for going into the Church service and then again when we got to the restaurant. 

Lloyd, it sounds like you are all set to hit the road on Wednesday.  You sure do have a good neighbor in Bob.  That reminds me so much of neighbor helping neighbor with the farm work as I was growing up. 

Amy, thanks for the apple pie. 

Jane, I don't often make a list anymore but used it and have been known to add something to the list that I had already done that day so that I had the pleasure of marking it off.  I guess I should have added "add things already done to the list" and I would have had another thing to mark off.  However, I guess that would have been going too far.  :)  It sounds like your Girl Scouts learned good lessons while waiting at Dulles in being able to help other folks as needed. 

deAngel, it sounds like I will need to send up a little sunshine your way this week.  As I look out my office window I don't see a cloud in the sky.  Glad your DIL lived west of Panama City and not East of it.  There is a little attachment we are going to get to put on the Rollator for the cane as she could have used both yesterday.  At Church they helped her store the Rollator out in the entryway of the Church, which wasn't close to where we were seated.  She is still learning how to use it comfortably and I am still learning how best to put it into the backseat of the car.  It is no problem getting it out as I can basically slide it out.  I can basically side it into the backseat as well so don't have to do any significant lifting. 

Jenny, I am sure watching the game from home misses some of the excitement of being in the crowd but like you I will be watching the games from the comfort of my easy chair.  Years ago they wouldn't broadcast a local game in the local area but that was stopped several years ago.  Glad your nephew was able to get to Destin for those supplies and food.  Situations like the Hurricanes bring out the best in people as people are willing to go and help as they can.  Does your nephew now have power?  Unfortunately the meal we had at Texas Roadhouse was the worst we have ever experienced there and we have eaten in them for many years.  The best thing I had to eat were the dinner rolls and the house salad.  I guess they can't all be winners. 

Carol, it is very annoying when you get what you think is something new home only to find it has been used and returned to the store.  I hope Don was successful in finding a good place for the antenna.  That was quite a snow experienced by your daughter. 

Joy, you are so right about most of our young people being good and caring.  One thing Pat and I were talking about yesterday is how helpful people are here to hold open the doors for us and others.  I really like the last stories that both NBC and CBS do on their nightly news broadcasts as it usually features the good deeds of someone.  After all the terrible news that dominates the rest of the news it is refreshing to be left with something good.  It sounds like you got a lot accomplished yesterday.  Pat has already watched a few of those Hallmark Christmas movies.  It is much too early for that as far as I am concerned but glad you and she enjoy them. 

Bubble, thanks for starting us off on the new week.  I like your Halloween graphics. The Dave Letterman quote is just about right. 

Shirley, it sounds like you were too late in locking up Tom in another part of your house as he already has your internal clock trained to his schedule.  :)

Gloria, when I went to the little one room school house out in the country we certainly didn't have buses either.  The town school did have one bus and when I was in High School I did ride it to the town from the farm. 


Merry Monday, Everyfriend.

Shirley,  your comment about the hoses reminded me I haven't unhooked mine, either.  We're supposed to break a record for the "lowest high temperature" and the "lowest low temperature" today.  Don't think either one is to be below freezing but the wind chill is to be in the 20's.  Brrrrr

June Drabek

I have been unable to come in and annoy you darlings, because our server was down and no techs work on the weekends, so I pouted and read my eyes sore. We did have a beautiful rain on Saturday though for which I am most grateful. I didn't  make it to  Church on Sunday though, one of those down days. They seem to visits more frequently now. Monday is turning our just fine. Had a nice warm shower, then slathered on lotion, my lower legs are needful of care because of the artery disease.

We had our flu shots last week, so hopefully we are safe for another year…..now that proves optomism…..adding another year to my life.

It is really blowing out there today..I had to close all the windows as the wind was rattling my blinds. Our Red Hats will be performing for the folks in the Memory Care building at one o'clock. That's always a pleasure to be part of. And soon it will be time for me to get downstairs for lunch, so I shall return later. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Hello Everyfriend!  I'm home, fed the doggies, had lunch and all that stuff.  Today was a tough one!  I was dragging when I went to the car but I feel somewhat better now.  I still have one phone call to make and I have to go by the Drs office and sign some papers for the release of information to another unit so I can get an appointment at Orthopedics. 

AMY, I am going to have the insulation done but the guy who was going to do  fell and is recovering from a concussion.  As soon as he is well enough he'll be here with his helper and I'll get insulated.

Enjoy the rest of your day.  I'm going to do the "sit down" part of getting ready for my guests today.  I'm really feeling tired.  Later gators!

Lloyd, I thought about sending you a "must check" list but afraid you wouldn't read it if I don't post here.  Hopefully the other owner took care of all the "bugs" that come in these motorhomes.....  Every time I took this one out I had to make some kind of repair either on the road or when I got home, that is NO EXAGGERATION.  I've had it 4 years now & still have to do or buy something every time it goes out. 

No matter what you think of staying in a Walmart parking lot, do buy the Rand McNally 2019 road atlas.... it shows every Walmart & is a life saver when you are weary & need a nap or place to stop for the night.  Most campgrounds don't allow you to run the generator between 10:00 pm & 6:00 am.... but most have electric hook ups. 

I'm not sure about using the generator in the Walmart parking lots, we never have needed to, the accessory battery powers the things (like fan on the frig, etc) for just overnight & I have my frig & freezer running on propane on the road & when camping in CO in the National Forests.... at Corp of Engineer campgrounds in MO, I connect to electricity so TVs & DVD players work.  I also switch from propane for the frig to electricity when I have hook ups. 

My plug in I use in the garage will run & get the frig & freezer cold, but it doesn't have the necessary power to run the furnace or AC in my driveway... blows the breaker. 

One other thing about driving on city "side" streets, the one I live on has a number of trees that overhang the street & I have to drive down the middle or chance breaking the "dome", skylight or whatever.  I learned the hard way, had to buy a new one & they aren't cheap!  Take a good look at how high that dome is & every time you see a tree hanging over the street, REMEMBER to duck!

By the way, those accessory batteries have only a one year warranty.... they aren't cheap, either!  Last year when we found it wouldn't hold a charge overnight, it was less than a year so Walmart (in Salida, CO) replaced it.  This year it was okay when we went in June but dead when we went back in Sept & warranty ran out, so I bought a new one when I got home.

Most cities have restrictions about parking an RV on the street, that's why I ask to meet you in the Walmart parking lot that is on 400 or Highway 54/Kellogg.... depends on what map you use the name it's called.  My street is narrow & if a car is parked across the street from one of those low hanging trees, it's not possible to get through without the branch hitting the dome.  I can't back the RV out if there is a car parked across the street from my driveway, not enough room to turn. 

My family reunion is the 21st so I'm heading to MO for that but heard the Estate Sale for the house across the street is same week end & I will have to move my elephant in the middle of the night to be able to get out.  I doubt if I will be home when or if you go through Wichita.... be on my way to Missouri, but will send you my phone number so if you call me, I will meet you where it is easiest for you to get off.... and do hope you get you that Walmart Rand McNally Atlas... I see them usually by the auto department.   

Since I've been west twice this summer to Colorado, & east to Truman Lake a couple weeks ago, you will start looking for highways that don't have repairs every few miles.  Google maps are good to show road work.  Put in your address & your daughter's address & see what they suggest is the best route.... I chose to travel the routes with small towns to be able to get off when I want, instead of interstates.  Kansas City is a mess of road work right now.... even watching for problems I was in the wrong lane & spent more than half an hour getting back to the one I wanted.

One more warning.... in western Kansas the highway patrol have their "traps" set to catch speeders at the TOP of the hills where the passing lane runs out.  Caught me the last trip I made in my little Rialta 5 years ago.  One guy in the slow lane was doing about 45-50 mph just sight seeing when he got in the passing zone, so I pulled out to pass because with that Rialta, it would bog down if not going fast enough & then hold everyone back, but if I hit the bottom at 65 mph it would "walk right over".  Anyway, that slow driver decided he didn't want a motorhome passing him so kept speeding up, cars behind me so all I could do was try to get around him before that other lane ran out.  You'll find out that you don't have time to look at the speedometer when passing another car & wind is rocking your RV. Soon as I got to the top (& around him), I caught my breath & saw that flashing red light behind me. 

I pulled over & explained to the cop that I couldn't open the door until I put the cats in their cages.... I asked him what was the matter because I honestly didn't even think about speeding, just had to get back in a lane at the top!!!  Cop said, "you were doing 83 in a 65 mile zone"... so I said, "really?"  I didn't argue at all, so he said, "yes, I couldn't believe it either so checked both radar guns".  I paid the fine as soon as I got home.  BUt, I have never speeded again in Western Kansas & watch for those passing lanes.  Saw another cop at the top of the next lane right after that, so it is a trap! 

Do hope you have a nice trip & few problems.  Cas & I made the trip to about where you are going, we went south at Walsenburg to avoid snow in southern Colorado.... we stopped at Farmington, New Mexico & took that route on over to a town called Kenyta (I think), and then went through all those gorgeous scenes you've watched in every Western movie, up through Monument Valley & then back to the 4 Corners of CO.  Depending on how long you stay whether you should take the southern route home so you don't have to go over Wolf Creek Pass in snow & ice.  I always make sure I am on the "top half of my gas tank" when I stop, so I don't have to worry about running out using the generator. 


Another day has come and is on its way out. Dark clouds and windy at the moment. I did get bread made to take with us tomorrow for the girls and a few more goodies to boot.

Shirley we also used the Rand McNally Atlas and we stopped at our CAA and picked up maps or even a trip pic that they had drawn up for us.

Jane hope you feel better  after your rest...not nice when you zip has zapped :(

Enjoy your evening.

Lloyd Hammond

Amy you make my mouth water I may get my bread Machine out, I do not need it on my waste line tho. thanks


June Drabek

Back again. Had a quick lunch and scooted over to join the other Red Hatters. We had a great time with this group. Many of them joined us in singing some of the old time songs, and we were given lots of applause, smiles, and hand shakes. Music is a wonderful way to make friends and to see big smiles.

Came home really tired, so I am just going to lay down till time to go down for supper. I short changed my lunch so I could go sing, will make it up at supper.

Sun is still shining brightly out West, and gusts of wind pop up now and then. Life is good, and I am glad to be a part of it. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Good morning everyone..

Sky is plastered with stars....not a cloud in sight. We are off to the city to the cardiologist ,then we are meeting up with the girls to enjoy a Chinese buffet with them.

Started another quilt ,this one is for me that I will give away when done. With all the fabric/stash I have,I am short one colour so hope to stop at a quilt shop and pick some up. Hope to stop and pick up more apples at a vegetable stand too.

June, sounds like you had an enjoyable day yesterday.

Callie, I covered up the a/c but disconnecting hoses is another job I also need to do.

Larry, nice that Pat was feeling up to join you for church.

Gloria,I also like tapioca pudding and so do our dogs! When we are done we give each dog a spoonful and they lap it up.

Lloyd, I also use my bread machine, I let it do all the hard work ,then I take the dough out and make into loaves to rise and bake in the oven.

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone.

G'Morning All. Just thought i'd look in and say Hi !, another nice autumn day here in the south, plenty of sunshine and blue sky, another day i'll be able to sit out in the garden, at the moment this weather looks set right up to the weekend, I have just finished talking to Lloyd !,  it sounds as if he is going to be busy for the next few weeks, he certainly has more energy than I have, after listening to what he plans to do I was quite exhausted!, well, that sun looks inviting so I had better get outside and enjoy it while it's here !, I expect it to change again by the weekend !,from what Lloyd said about his weather, -01C where he is, i'm about ready to enjoy the 18C here, so cheerio for now, hope you are having the best of weather wherever you  are.
                                                                            Roley.  :thumbup:


Just a quick "Good Morning All".  I've been up since 6 and I've managed to get everything done that needed doing before the carpet cleaners come.  I had 2 closets to clean out and my plan was to do them yesterday but I was too weary to even think about it.

And before I put all that stuff back in the closets, there will be a trip to Goodwill.  There are coats that I haven't worn in years and at least two pairs of boots and an almost new bowling ball including shoes and a brandnew bag.  I have trouble carrying it any more let alone throwing it down an alley and actually hitting anything with it.

My daughter's friend came yesterday and dropped off a contraption for Emma to sleep in when she's here.  She had it for her first grandchile and is sharing.  This is pretty neat.  Cindy and Karen have been friends since elementary school and her mother and I have been friends since elementary school.  She lived two houses down the street from me.  And now our great grandchildren are sharing the use of a bed.  I love it!

I'm only here to relax until the boinger goes for the doggies pills and I just remembered something else I need to do before the cleaners get here.  Enjoy your day, Everyfriend!  And if you have time, come on over and help me!

Good morning.

I didn't get in yesterday..  I had a day similar to Jane's.  I was able to go down to get my hair done,  but after that I was just worn out.  I wound up sleeping most of the afternoon.  And, I did sleep pretty good last night.  I was hungry for a hamburger,  which I hardly ever eat. But, I called our local carry-out and ordered a cheeseburger and an order of fried onion rings. It did taste good, but didn't really make me feel any better.  I was not hungry at dinnertime, so skipped dinner and then had a fudge bar later. 

Thank goodness I feel ok this morning.  I think I might have done too much on Sunday.

I have 2 medical people coming in today.  One will be the PT therapist who will do the re-accessment and discharge me from Physical Therapy.  The second one is the visiting nurse.   I am hoping that this will be the last week for her, also.  One is coming around 11:30 and the other one about 1.  Right at lunchtime. So, that will mean lunch will be later again today.  One good thing, is neither of them will be here very long.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with the cardiologist.  I have a list of questions for him.  I have not seen him since I was in the hospital, but so far, the nurse tells me that I am doing well. 

Jane, hope you will have a better day today.  Sounds like you are just about ready for your family's visit.  I  know you can hardly wait until you see little Emma.

Amy, sounds like you will have a busy day.   Enjoy your Chinese lunch.   Always so many choices on their menus. 

I need to get myself moving.

Make it  a good day.



Hi Everyone. This is suppose to be the last day we are in the 80's, at least for a few days.  We also have a 50% chance of afternoon showers.  This is going to be a busy morning.  The kitchen choirs have been done and Pat's breakfast fixed for her.  In about an hour or so I will drive her down to to Church so she can help in the pricing of the items for the women's bazaar that will be held tomorrow.  I will come home and meet with my friend for an hour at 10 am and then go back down to the Church to get Pat and we will go to Chik-Fil-Lay for a good lunch.  I also contacted an individual to see about getting the outside of our home pressure washed and a repair done on the gate to our fence into the back yard.  He is suppose to call sometime today to set a time to come over and give me an estimate of the cost.  That will be it for today and that is plenty. 

I just read a posting on Pat Scott Halbach's Facebook page saying she had headed back to the hospital yesterday with some type of problem with her hip.  She requested our prayers for her as she deals with the new problem. 

Callie, I also need to bring in the one garden hose I have along side the house.  It is one of those very lightweight ones and I have only used it once or twice all summer.  Since I don't do any outside watering anymore there has been no need. 

June, nice to see you posting yesterday and to see you were up to having lunch in the dining room and then participating with the Red Hatters.  Music is the universal language.  I am listening to an old Frankie Laine song at this moment as I write here this morning. Do you only have to get one flu shot? 

Jane, sorry to read you had a rough day at the cash register yesterday.  I am just glad that all of your days are not like that.  I hope your insulation guy will soon be back on his feet and be able to get your home insulated before the cold weather.  Nice that you are going to have a special bed for Emma when she is there. 

Joy, sometimes just having something cold like the fudge bar is all that a person wants.  I expect today, since we are eating out at lunch time, that I will have an ice cream bar for my dinner tonight.  I try to eat something before I take my handful of medicine for the evening and I can always make room for ice cream.  Glad to see you are feeling OK this morning.  I hope you get the desired releases from the caregivers you have coming to see you today. 

Shirley, reading about what you have had to do with your motor home in the last four years makes me very glad I don't own one.  You certainly are experienced with owning one and mastering all of the ins and outs.  You had a lot of good information for Lloyd and Nancy. 

Amy, I hope you both have an enjoyable day today and I bet the girls will appreciate the homemade bread.  Like Lloyd, my mouth waters when I hear of homemade bread.  We haven't been to a Chinese Buffet for sometime as sort of got burned out on that type of food.  They sure can make a lot of different dishes with chicken and all of those sauces.  I have heard that excuse many times as why Pat needed to go to the quilt shop as just didn't have the right color material or needed something else. :)  I hope you enjoy making the quilt for your own use. 

roley, it sounds like you are having some very pleasant weather.  I hope you can enjoy a nice time in your garden?   


Good morning everyone, sun is shining this morning, wonder how long it will shine today. So tired of the gloomy days we have been having. Finally got winter clothes out with the help of CNA and summer ones put away. First time I needed help doing that.
Nothing to add this morning and if I do not go get breakfast and dressed my CNA will be here before I know it.
Have a great day.

Carpets all clean!  Now I'm going out and run around a bit while they dry.  Think I'll take the doggies along for the ride so they I can leave fans on and windows open.  Later Gators!

Eveyone sounds in good shape today, and that makes me happy. I have done some catch up on personal paper work...medical stuff mostly.I don't know if I am eligible to vote in our local election or not,  as I can't remember if I registered or not.Too much illness lately. Looking back at my medical diary, there has been quite a bit of illness the past two or three years. But the body doesn't quit trying, thanks be to God.

I will be be going down for lunch now, then home to rest till3:15 when the Red Hatters will sing at the Elmwood building. So, off I go. See you later. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.
