Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's a clear day today and supposed to be sunny all day. There is rain in the prediction but no snow until next Sunday.  We shall see!

The doggies and I are waiting for the boinger.  I wait a bit more patiently than they do.  They shuffle and whine for the last 15 minutes.  They have no concept of an hour.  They just know they're hungry.

AMY, I love messing with the telemarketers.  And when I have something to say that REALLY frustrates them I can hardly keep from laughing out loud.

Yesterday,  noticed that my silverware drawer was drooping a bit.  I did a quick shuffle and it seemed OK.  This morning it drooped suddenly when I closed it.  So I pulled it all the way out and checked.  The support all the way in the back is broken.  So I removed it to a small plastic bag to take to my favorite hardware store. And when the back of the support went down, I noticed that the next drawer was having the same problem.  So out came that one too.  Now they and their contents are on the dining room table and the little bag of broken stuff is in my purse.  I think I'm going to ask my son if he can spare a few minutes to put them back in.  My arms a just a bit short and I'm too big to fit between the front supports. 

It's almost time for the boinger and then my day busies up.  I have to have breakfast and then get ready and go to work this morning.  Wish me short lines and lots of smiles.

This is your day!  Make it special in your own way!

Another rainy morning!  I recently read somewhere that here in Central NC we have had more rain in the past year than Seattle has had.  The weather is even crazier than usual.

Jane, something always seems to break somewhere in the house. Everytime I have to have something fixed I feel like I am tip-toeing around so I won't break anything else.  Hope your son can fix the drawers pretty soon.

Those of you that have ice and snow.....please be careful. 

Joy, I've been reading like crazy, too.  I have my reader linked to my local library, and to Barnes & Noble web site, and, also, to Amazon Prime.  There are hundreds.....maybe even thousands....of books for me to read. 

Gloria, what a blessing your CNA does so much for you.  So glad for you to have her help.

Breakfast is calling.  I'm on my way.


Hi Everyone. Today is a 100% rainy day until late evening.  A couple of things I had planned to try to do today are going to have to wait until next week.  I had a good nights sleep last night but am so tired this morning I can hardly force myself to move but did get my kitchen chores done and things set out for Pat's breakfast, although I may see if she feels up to preparing it herself.  I think today will basically be a day of rest.

Phyllis, while I was at the bank yesterday I sorted through the bonds and have quite a few to cash this year.  While I was sorting I found a couple that I should have cashed in a year or so ago.  I thought I had them all sorted by year of issuance but that was not the case.  I checked with the Walmart Pharmacy yesterday and they did have the Shingles vaccine.  I started to get my second shot yesterday but saw it was going to be quite a delay.  Pat also needs to get here second shot for I didn't wait as was tired and we will both get them at the same time.  I agree about grocery shopping coming around much too often. 

Amy, it sounds like you exercised good judgment in turning around on the bad roads and that your situation won't get much better for a few days.   

Shirley, I never stop marveling at your and your zest for life.  They showed a lady, who was 90 years old, who had always wanted to sky dive and she did it being held by an experienced diver.  Surprised your son would make a trip if he wasn't feeling well.  The message about someone posting while we were preparing our post is different in this version.  It appears our posting has occurred and it hasn't if someone else has posted.  I think that is why some of my postings have disappeared. 

June, your feeling blah yesterday describes how i feel today.  I hope you are feeling better today. 

Rammel, I heard or read the other day that there were over 230 billion robo calls made last years.  I am sure that most of us are very annoyed at at being disturbed with them. 

Jane, I always think it isn't any one else's business what my financial situation is in terms of debt or anything else.

Jenny, I hope you dad gets encouraging news today.  I expect the trip to the doctor will be pretty unpleasant for him as getting in and out of a car isn't easy when in pain. 

Callie, better safe than sorry when the walk isn't safe outside. 

Gloria, I am happy to see your son brought you a Kindle that puts a library right in your hand.  Is it a Kindle Fire tablet or just the ebook reader? My problem getting on a sled would be getting up off of it or the ground if I fell off.  I do have good memories of using my sled when I was growing up on the farm. 

Joy, it sounds like your get together tomorrow will involve quite a few people.  It should be fun with little ones around.

Good afternoon, I am also tired. Quite a week.
Weather stays in the 40's, the wind makes it feel colder.
Been a busy week, Wed. I was suppose to go to the hematologist, but my rider forgot. Thurs a friend took me grocery shopping. To day was the cardiologist . To morrow is a special appointment with the foot doctor, the toe is not getting any better. Was surprised Pulmonary doctor called  that I have a 1PM appointment with him Monday. I forgot all about that one.

Larry and June, hope you both feel better.

Amy we seem to be having so much rain, which I am not complaining.    The longer we go in Jan, without snow makes me happy.  I am so glad when this month is over. One rule here in the park is we keep our walkway clear, in case an ambulance has to come in. You can tell I live in a senior park. Also the mailman does not have to deliver mail, if you box is not clear for them to drive up too.

I'm home and I'm cold, tired and out of sorts!  My favorite hardware store has to order the part I need and I have to wait until Wednesday to fix my drawers.  So two of my drawers will sit on the dining room table until then.  I did put the stuff I use all the time in containers and have them on the kitchen counters but now I have to get busy and put away the Christmas stuff to make room for the stuff that should be out of sight in drawers. 

I think I'll go take a nap!

Janie, that's how I was feeling yesterday.

Another nothing day for me.Really feeling so tired. Woke up at 4 a.m. with a nose bleed. It was really running out, so a little later I called the clinic, and they came up and took my vitals Nothing wrong there, and I guess they were as puzzled as I am why it bled like that. I ordered lunch sent up as I was not feeling very sociable, and have half of it left for supper. Weather has been sunny, but cool. I have my heat on now.

All I have planned it supper at home, then on to bed and book. News seems to just be a repeat of yesterday and nothing else worthwhile, so that's when I treasure my books. I will bid you all a very peaceful night, and Larry, I pray our God heals you up soon, and the same prayer for others needing His healing. Peace, Love and Prayers to all. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


Jane, just had to say it....not good to have droopy drawers. Go ahead, I deserve it :bash:  Hope your nap helped.

Gee, Shirley.... you out of sorts, too?  :sorry:

Almost makes me  :-[  to say it was a lovely sunny day in Central Oklahoma and warm enough to melt a lot of the snow we had yesterday. After not being out of the house since Monday,it was really nice to get my hair done and do a couple of errands.  Even the parking lots were dry.
Temperatures are supposed to keep rising until we're in the 60's by the middle of next week.

Miss Ellen has had a hard time getting back to NYC.  She was supposed to fly out at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday and change planes in St. Louis.
That flight was cancelled and the entire OKC airport "ceased operations" for the rest of the day.  They didn't get back into business until the wee hours, which meant the same flight was cancelled this morning.
Just learned that she's on a 6:00 a.m. flight tomorrow morning and will change in Dallas - AND the airline didn't charge her anything extra for the longer flight.  :thumbup:

Sleep well, Everyfriend  ('specially those who aren't feeling up to par   :hugs:)  and have pleasant dreams.


It's OK, CALLIE!  I knew someone would pick up on the "droopy drawers" and you're right...it's not good to have them.  And to have to endure them for 6 days, maybe even 7, is even worse.  If I could soak the in hot water and just shrink them to fit, I'd be happy.

I did get a nap, had some supper, watched 2 episodes of M*A*S*H and read some more of my Amish Christmas stories.  Now I'm going to bed and try to sleep.  Tomorrow has to be a better day!  I hope yours is, too, Shirley and I hope everyfriend has a lovely day, too.

well I am having another of those short on sleep nights.


I won't post when there aren't at least 2 posters between me at night and me in the morning. Nothing really happens over night to warrant it. 

Good Morning!

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


Good morning..

Like Lloyd I too had trouble sleeping...annoying that is! Think I saw every hour on the hour last night.

Laundry today and more purging of "stuff" . Dull day here so doubt laundry will be hung out.

Jane, hope you can get your droopy drawers fixed soon. :)

June, is the air in your room dry, do you need a humidifier?

Well I had better skedaddle ,sleeping in felt good but now I need to move it.

Enjoy your day everyone.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I slept pretty good last night.  I had to make a trip a couple of times but went right back to sleep and didn't wake up until after 6 a.m.  And, wonder of all wonders!, the sun is shining this morning.

Shirley, I managed to sift through Spectrum's very confusing web site and turn on Nomorobo calls because you mentioned it a couple days ago. I hope it works because they are driving me crazy.  Many more of those annoying calls have been coming in recently and that is in spite of the fact that I NEVER answer the phone if I don't recognise the caller id.  I laughed at all of your smileys....that was the way I was feeling yesterday while spending a long time on the phone with Spectrum.  I don't think anyone in that company knows what they are doing!

I'm very sorry that so many of you are feeling so tired and not up to par.  I hope that all of you improve very quickly.  Larry, June, and All, I am thinking good and positive thoughts and prayers for you.

Good morning to "Droopy Drawers" Jane.  Did you TRY soaking them in water to shrink them?  It just might work.....or not.

I haven't said this for awhile.....MAKE it a good day, Everyone!


Good Saturday morning !  I am just here to say Hi !  I have a busy day that has already started.  Got my sweet and sour meatballs ready to go into the crockpot and have everything else ready to go. 

Hopefully, I will not be too tired to check back in when I get back home this evening.

I hope everyone will feel better today and have a good day.



Hi Everyone.  Finally we have a bright and clear sky today with no rain in the forecast.  I have another quiet day planned as still not feeling very energetic.

Shirley, I got a kick out of your posting yesterday with all of the smileys.  That was cleaver. 

June, thanks for your comment.  I know God has the ultimate healing for me even if it is not during this lifetime.  I hope you feel a little stronger today.  Nice that you can have your meal brought up to your room. 

Callie, nice to see your weather has improved and you were able to get out of your house yesterday.  It is nice we have the option of staying in but also nice when we are able to get out.  I hope Miss Ellen is able to get back to NYC today. 

Jane, that was a lot of MASH to watch in one day.  I still enjoy watching that program occasionally.  I think we have several of the episodes recorded. 

Lloyd and Amy, it is frustrating when we try to go to sleep and our mind keeps racing from one thought to another. 

Phyllis, we must be having similar weather as we also have a cloudless sky with bright sun.  It is a little nippy outside but pleasant.

Good afternoon, I to just lost a very long post. It is raining again. I think if we had 5 days of sunshine in a row we would feel better.

I too have having a lot of loss sleep. I night I got 1 hour. I am lucky to get 4. Lat night I finally went to sleep around two, next a little late like 3 I am awakened by purring in my ear, by a cat named Taffy. She could not figure why I yelled, She was layinging on my shoulder.  I was awake the rest of the night.[color=blac
Now I have to get resdy to go to the foot doctor, yesterday was the cardeoglist and Monday the Plumary doctor. June I have to go out to all my doctors You are lucky.  I also had a nose bleed a couple of weeks ago had to finally go to a walk in clinic to have it taken care of. At lest I have to get dressed to go,out.
Larry, I hope you feel better soon.

I'm back!  Nice to see all of you and I hope your days (and nights) improve.  I keep thinking that if I could just get one good nights sleep, my whole outlook would improve.  No matter how much I get up or move around in the bed, the doggies sleep through it.  The are always up between 6 and 6:30 a.m. and that means I am, too.

My daughter picked me up to go to the Amish store this morning and on the way, we passed a building that I've been watching go up.  I had noticed that most of the men working on it were Amish and now it turns out that it's going to be another store like the one we go to.  This one is less than 2 miles from where I live and the other one is about 12 miles.  There is now a sign at the road proclaiming it to be "Davy's"  and we're wondering is "Davy" might be the son of the guy who has the other store.  It looks to be the same size and the sign is very similar to the one on the store where we go.  I go by that corner all the time and I'll probably be one of their first customers when they open.

I've decided not to do much of anything else today except maybe to get start on packing away Christmas things.  I have a feeling it won't be a big start! 

I wish you all well!

Good morning everyone. Another day of rain here. Getting so days like this I ache all over. Still think I rather see snow this time of year.

Anyone getting tired of signing in every morning here? For the last week I also have to hunt for my last post, used to open there all the time. Getting tired of hunting to where I ended the time before. Oh well, guess I am getting cranky with the weather an not being able to do much anymore.

JOY  only snow here so far was in November other than a few snow flurries.

PHYLLIS  on local news earlier this week one weatherman said we had 63 inches of rain last year, broke a record. I thank God I have a good CNA at last. I had some who only wanted to sit and do nothing.

LARRY  no matter how many hours I sleep I still feel tired when I get up in the morning. No more ge t t ing up and start moving like I used to. Along with the other kids in the neighborhood in winter we lived either on our sleds or ice skates. See very few youngsters playing outside these days. The Kindle my son gave me is an old one of his. his son gave it  to him about 15 years ago I THINK.

GLORIA  de  a mail man does not have to leave mail if he cannot safely get to it. That is a long standing rule at the post office.

My son just got here for a weekly visit soo will wait till he leaves to finish here---------
WOW my son was in a talking mood today.

PHYLLIS  if the droopy drawers are wood soaking in water would make them swell not shrink, wouldn't it?

LARRY  my meal for later is ready, my son brought me a Italian cold cut grinder from a place I like, dressing separate so not soggy when I am ready to eat. Looking forward to it.

JANE  glad I did not put any Christmas decorations up, don't have the work of putting things away now. That is something I no longer can do.

Pouring again so think I will go lay on the couch and watch some TV if I can find something good. Enjoy the rest of the day.

We are having a heavy overcast sky today.our weather is usually so much the same sun, sun and more sun so I appreciate any change at all.

I woere myself out early today. Shanpooed my hair before the warm shower and it really tired me. Got into a clean nightgown, sat down to use the breathing machine, then got a cuppa' cafe, did the morning reading and prayers and sang a hymn, and put myself back to sleep for an hour. Now have had breakfast, dressed in "walking" clothes, so ready for some exercise before lunch time.

Feeling more like myself today, but not ready to go dancing. Any little improvement helps, so Larry, I am praying for improvement for you. God will want to use you down here before you get to Heaven, so my prayer is for good health NOW..we need you Larry.

with that said, I am going to walk the hallways before lunch time arrives. Hugs, Love and Prayers to all who need them. June /color]
As long as we are here, let's dance.


June, I am so  happy your up and about today, not that resting isn't good for one, but am sure the other residents are happy to see you about ;)

Make it a great night and tomorrow



Time for my Sat night bath/shower. Not the only day of week I do this :D but a "for sure job" since I get up so early to go to church on Sunday morning.  I fix myself breakfast & feed cats, take my weekly aspirin (regular 325mg Bayer) & leave the house by 7:00am. We all have our routines, don't we?

Larry, I really was in a bad mood when I started clicking on every mad/mean smiley but by the time I got through, was smiling. I do work hard at being happy, think a left over from WWII when I felt like it was my job to make Mom & Dad smile. They were so worried about the war & my brothers... and keeping shoes on my feet (with leather rationed, I wore out my shoes & anyone else's that had some they outgrew). My mother turned gray those years.

I was 6 when it started & 10 when over, our world revolved around what we could do to help. Polio hit the next door neighbor boy, a big fear. Mother was a volunteer plane spotter (a base 20 miles away) on top of the court house. She also volunteered to help roll bandages, I don't know where they got the fabric, but it was used for military hospitals. She wrote my brothers every single day so when mail caught up with them, they always had a lot to read as well as packages she sent all the time. Dad did his part by helping every neighbor & friend keep their cars & all machinery running. He could fix anything, even made parts for some things. 

I was a cheerleader as a kid & and for nearly 60 years married to a man that always saw the dark side, kept him "up". When I first read Pollyanna I didn't understand why people thought she was unusual... I totally understood her reasoning.

Got to admit, it's harder, the older I get, to find the good in everyone & every deed. I realize my days are limited to be able to slide down the hill on that Sno-Nut, but will keep at it as long as I can. I did see the 90 year old do the jump & I would try to hang glide if given a chance.... would also still like to ski just once, altitude a problem, but I'd do it.

Janie, hope your droopy drawers can be fixed next week. Every time someone writes that I picture my 2 year old greats last 4th of July, girl was host to the party so showing her boy cousin where they had to stand with that big fireworks going off in the middle of their street. Such a cute picture with both being in diapers yet, their "drawers" looked so big (and droopy).

June, my youngest son used to wake up with nose bleeds just running.... not just a dry nose. I would give him an iron pill & bonemeal and that would stop it. Then I would make sure our meals were "iron rich".  At one time I was considered a bleeder & had to have vitamin K shots... but I hit the iron & fixed me up.  Do hope you don't have more, but my son that just had heart surgery was low on iron & his doctor came up with a new iron that helped him right away. He was taking a calcium that didn't work so I suggested he try the bonemeal that worked when he was a kid... it comes from shin bones of cattle raised on organic type pastures instead of being calcium from oyster shells. Works for me & worked for the kids when they were at home. You have such good care I have no doubt they are doing everything they can to help you, sometimes "they" haven't had a reason to look for low iron being a cause. I hope it was a one time nose bleed & you don't have to do anything more.

Gloria, you know I always do everything backward so when I come into Friends, I start out here & scroll to the last post & work my way back to MY last post.... I do the same when I visit Photos. This worked the same on the old software as this so "I don't know any better". ;D


SHIRLEY, when I was a kid, I was subject to nosebleeds, too and it was determined to be low iron also.  For almost two years I took extra iron and had to drink something my milk or water that just about gagged me.  I remember telling my mom once that I thought I might rather had the nosebleed.  She assured that I wouldn't and added "Drink".  About two years later the dr allowed us to cut back on the iron but not quit it and I didn't have to drink the crappy stuff any more.  It was think and kind of like trying to mix mayonnaise in milk or water.  I forgot what it was called.  I guess I really didn't want to remember.  But I haven't had any nosebleeds since that time.

My drawers aren't drooping right now.  They're taking up space on the dining room counter.  And the stuff I use regularly...silverware, sharp knives, can openers, etc. are in containers taking up spaceon the kitchen counters.

I'm off to bed soon so I'll say good night Everyfriend.  Sleep well and wake refreshed.  And may God bless us, every one!

Been up a while, cats fed & I should be fixing my egg, but checked how well I slept (5 hours+), this Fitbit keeps me honest, gives me the daily/weekly sleep & how sound. Couple days this week I got more than 8 hours with naps, helps make up for those 4 hour (+ or -) nights.

Jane, my sister had to take the icky stuff when we were kids but don't think anyone ever thought I was anemic TOO bad because I was "perpetual motion" as Mother called it. The Dr did test me when I was pregnant with the middle kid, he didn't believe I could be anemic but I knew what it felt like. After running the test twice he came in the room & said, "you really are anemic". Tried at least 8 types (samples.. 58 years ago) of iron before finding one that didn't double me over with stomach cramps. My eyes are the first to give me trouble when low.

By the way, your drawer problem made me think about taking a few things out of my "tool" drawer. Do you have one of those? Mine has a hammer, every tool I need & then some, including pruning sheers a 50' steel tape, etc.... poor drawer groans every time I pull it out but never thought about it breaking. My husband used to leave whatever he had in his hands on the cabinet & this drawer was the catch all, still has washers, screws, etc. & first place I look for any size nail or screwdriver.

As a matter of fact, the Betty Crocker electric mixer that was a wedding present used to stop in the middle of mixing a cake & more than once I would take it apart to "file down the brushes"... which were little things that had to make contact with something to work. Dad showed me how to fix it one time & it lasted for at least the first 40 years doing that. He would put in new ones now & then. Also had a round canister vacuum that I would take apart & put back together (never did anything but it worked). One shop I called to ask about repairs told me "if you ever take those little wafers apart it's done for".  Since that's what I had been doing every time, I decided HE wasn't the one to take it to. It didn't get dumped for more than 40 years & was a "fire sale" bargain at $8. when I bought it used. I need my "tools".  ;) Always had Dad or Cas to fix the serious problems but I didn't hesitate working on them. Now my kids fill in when I fail. I'd better get moving, not dressed for church yet & still need to eat so I can take my weekly aspirin.  :)

Lloyd, the story behind that photo is I never saw it until after my brother died. I saw many taken the same day with a closed mouth Shirley scowling at the camera. Never remembered why I was scowling because I was always happy. When my brother's widow sent me a packet of photos & negatives years later, that toothless one showed up & I remembered him chasing me all day to catch me smiling. Thank you for not thinking me being a complete nut!  :) 


Good morning everyone..

The sound of the wind in the pines woke me this morning . Before my feet hit the floor ,I hoped there was no new snow to deal with. Weather guesser said no snow today but snow Fri Sat which we didn't get.

Yesterday I practised for today....a day of rest. I even had a nap  after I did the laundry, just couldn't get both oars in the water at the same time it seemed. Today is a day of rest :)

I also used to get nosebleeds ,I remember getting my nose cauterized once. Low iron has been a problem in the past but seems ok now. Liver used to be a meal I enjoyed but eating it 3 times a day plus snacking on it in between and taking 6 iron pills a day stopped my love of liver :(

June, happy tp read you are feeling better, just take it easy. Soon enough you will be waltzing about.

Gloria, is a grinder  like a sub?

Larry hope you are feeling better today, Hope you can take it easy today.

Better get going.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning everyone, 31° and everything is covered in ice this morning. With it getting below freezing overnight after all the rain yesterday when I looked out this morning and looked at the cars I thought glad I did not have to try scraping the ice off the car windows. Yippee this morning I did get to my last post so much happier starting.

JUNE  glad you felt much better yesterday. That is what  we like to see.

SHIRLEY  I tried that going to the end and going backwards but that go me all mixed up. Guess I am a stubborn Frenchwoman and get into a routine and don't take well to changing it.

JANE  you make me glad I didn't have nosebleeds, just the thought of drinking something horrible wants to make me gag.

AMY  yes a grinder and sub are the same thing depending on where it is bought and the area one lives. I have heard other names for them, too.

Have a good day.

Good Sunday morning.

I didn't get back here yesterday.  Was tired when I got home and ate a little snack, watched TV for a while and then went to bed.

Our family party was very nice. I guess it was about 50 adults and 5 or 6 little ones. Not as many as we were hoping for, but still a nice group. It was held at a nice community hall in a neighborhood where one of the nieces lives.  Had lots of good food.  We had the Chinese auction, which is always a lot of fun. The joke gifts are always a big hit.  You are really not supposed to buy something, just bring something you don't want anymore, but there are usually some who will buy a gift.  Always fun when somebody decides they  want to switch for something better than they got.  There was a bottle of wine that made for several exchanges.  The little ones were cute, and excited when Santa made an appearance "on his way back to the North Pole".  Everyone seemed to have a nice time.

It is a pretty sunny morning, and supposed to be in the 50's.  The Baltimore Ravens will be playing the first game of the play-offs, and the whole city is gearing up for a big win.  I am not that much interested in the games since the players all started protesting "whatever".  But, I will probably watch some of it, especially to see if they win.

I want to try to finish getting all the Christmas decorations taken down today. I didn't do much inside my place, but I did help decorate our sitting area out in the hall. So, that will be the extent of my "work" today, along with cleaning up a few dishes that I had left in the sink yesterday.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday.



Hi Everyone on a beautiful sunny and crisp morning.  However we are expecting to get to 68 degrees today.  I am not going to Sunday School or Church this morning as just don't have the energy.  I didn't accomplish anything yesterday and it appears this may be a duplicate.  Pat even fixed my breakfast this morning and there is something wrong with this picture as I should be fixing hers but I appreciate her help.  I hope I can get up enough energy so we can go out for our main meal today.

I have read all the postings and appreciate you all sharing.  However, I just don't feel up to writing any more here.  I'll try to do better tomorrow. Please don't worry about me as I am OK other than the extreme fatigue.
