Good morning everyone..

No new snow to deal with...yet today. We are off to the fabric sale today and having lunch out at a restaurant that serve fantastic food!! Fish and chips will be my order ,they do the fish perfect for me, not greasy just cooked the wiggle out and crispy batter.

Have laundry going at the moment,then get ready to go.

June...please keep trying we miss your posts!!

Bubble thank you for the new start page , love both the photos. My granddaughter told us when she was about 4 yrs old  that pencils were made in Pennsylvania!

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning everyone. well the weather guesser can't make up his/or mined says in same breath 16º and partly cloudy 32º and partly sunny , the temp statement is the part that confuse'y  me if it is partly sunny can be partly cloudy both but two temps at same time ?? Have a great day'



:) G'Morning Amy, Hope you enjoyed your 'Fish-n-Chips !, hello Bubble, thanks for the new page, connected first time and every thing worked !, :thumbup:, we are still enjoying spring like weather here ! unbelievable for the time of the year, hope it lasts ?,sorry to read you are only able to use one hand Larry, I know how you must feel as I have had the same problem too, the aftereffects of my heart attack last December has weakend the left side of my body much more now, it even effects me trying to wheel myself around in my chair, I continually go around in circles !, :),
well, thats about it for the moment, like everyone else i'm looking forward to the warmer weather and more cheerier news forecasts !  :)
                                          Cheerio. Roley.


Good Morning Everyfriend!  Something strange happened here so before I go on forever, I'm going to try posting this.

Well, it seems to have worked OK and if this is something new....I LIKE IT!  I can see what I'm typing so much better.

ROLEY, I find myself going in circles too and I have the use of both hands and both feet.  I think it's my brain that causes the circles.

I've been up for a while and I'm trying to ignore the things on my list for today.  I'm trying to fill out an application and I find they've changed the Wal-Mart Associate website.  You can only access it if you have the WM APP.  I don't do apps because I can't read what comes up on my phone.  Now they tell me that if I don't do the app, I can't get on to the website at home.  I have to do everything at the store....on the clock!  That's impossible while I'm running a register.  I really can't understand why everything has to be so difficult.  What I really need is one of my grandkids to move in with me for about a month and teach me all this stuff.

I guess I better get back to my list.  If I don't, nothing will get done and I'll end up feeling LAZY.  Enjoy your day, everyfriend.

Good morning everyone, finally a bit of sun this morning. So tired of the damp weather. Can't seem to get warm so stay inside, not going out for a walk either.

PHYLLIS  like you id you could see all the food I have here you would think I was deprived at one time. I have enough stocked for several people but I have no appetite. You are right I will not have to move unless the witch thinks I am destroying my apartment or break one of her rules.

AMY  YOU STILL HAVE  5 POUND BAGS OF SUGAR AND FLOUR? Here it has been 6 or 7 years since we only get 4 pound bags at the price of the 5 pounds.

SHIRLEY  you cannot hate the litterbox job but who has such a soft heart for stray cats?

BUBBLE  love your graphics and your quotes are so true. In this building there are a few who do not socialize with anyone, we hardly see them and to me that is no way to spend a life.

JANE  Just like when we order something and then they want our opinion of what we bought. Fill our the form and near the bottom they want to know all about you. I will not fill out things like that. Everything changes and not for the better either.

Better go get dressed for the day, my son will be here soon. Have a good day.

Jane, I know exactly what you are talking about!  Just when I think I have these computers & phone "lined up" something gets an update or needs one and I don't know what to do. So frustrating. I do not know the terms/words to understand what "they" want.  :tissue: Good luck!

Cold & we have a weather alert for today, ice/snow or whatever & that lazy wind (thanks, Amy, for that explanation).... just not a nice day out. Everyone has had breakfast & I am thinking about crawling back into bed before getting dressed. May sleep in until spring shows up for good.

Good morning, Peter.... would love to have some of those "fish & chips" like I ate when in England. I would always order cod & 6 pence of chips that they wrapped in newspaper & I would eat on the walk home. Quite a hike from downtown Marlow to the top of the hill where the house we lived in sat. We had the attic flat, up 3 flights of steps in a mansion that was  divided into 3 houses, the one end "house" was converted into 5 flats. The owner that converted the place lived in flat #1 that had rooms on all 3 levels. My husband found the place online years ago, changed completely, of course, but still was rental apartments. What was beautiful rolling hills surrounding is now filled with houses. Would love to see the town again.


Looks like our JUNE is stuck on the previous page....................
"Looks like I"m stuck in yesterday....all by myself. It is lonely in here. I'm sure soneone has posted in here today, but I don't know how to find you. Booo Hoooo"

Hi Everyone.  Just checking in again today.  I finally had to admit to myself yesterday that I am pretty sick and the chance of getting much better aren't very good.  I don't mean this to sound pessimist for I certainly have hope that I am wrong.  Yesterday I had Pat bring in from the garage the little rollator we have and I am finding it helpful.  Using my arms and legs seem to really tire me and bring on the panting from shortness of breath that sometimes I have trouble getting to stop.  I tell you this not to generate sympathy for myself but that you may better understand why I will probably seldom add any other general comments in these discussions.  If you see me check in each day you know I am still around.  I will read all of your postings each day.  Thank you for your prayers and thoughts.


Larry, I read and understand but will keep cheering you on. This is one place where we can be honest with ourselves and everyone else. I do admire how you've handled your condition so long and know you are tired, we all care, you know that, so whatever it takes, stop in and let us know how you, Pat & Scott are doing. I'm still hoping that when  you get rested up you will be back for longer talks.  :smitten:

Bubble, love the graphics & funnies. I have a photo taken by my brother of me, my sister & couple neighbor kids at the end of the old covered bridge, must have been in the early to mid '40s. The bridge burned down long ago.

June & anyone else having strange things going on, I just got notifications about comments I made as far back as December, in my mail box.  Somebody is playing with the site, maybe Michael is up to doing changes?   :o

Can't get started today, going to warm up another cup of coffee & have a strawberry toaster pop... recently re-discoverd them. THINK SPRING!   :cheers:

A late Good Morning, Everyfriend.

According to the Update forum,  Michael has done a few things.  One I'm noticing is that I didn't have to type between the brackets when I set the Bold/Size 3 type for my post.  It just started out that way.  I like that!!!!

Shirley,  Miss Emily called last night. Overland Park had had 4 inches of snow in 24 hours.

We were supposed to wake up to sleet and "light icing" yesterday morning but the water in my bird bath didn't even have a coating of ice.  Still gloomy and very cold, though.  This is getting tiresome.

Larry,  I also admire your admitting that you aren't "what you used to be".  We'll be cheering you on and looking forward to seeing you when you feel like posting.

Janie,  I'm with you on all this stuff we're suppose to do on our cell phones.  I only use mine for texting and the calculator.  Friends know not to call that number because I'll probably manage to "decline" the call instead of answering it.

Couldn't shut down my mind last night and get to sleep.  Finally drank some Chamomile tea and relaxed enough to drop off - which meant I slept very very late this morning. Fortunately,  there's nothing I have to do and nowhere I need to go.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.  Stay warm!

Well - looks as if the Bold didn't "take" and I don't see the line of icons to make this Edit a size 3.  Oh, well.


Yes,  Callie, things are different here this morning. 

I am just making an appearance. It has been a slow morning so far.  Had all kinds of plans when I first got up, but they went by the wayside.  So, it is now after lunch, and I am not further along than I was several hours ago.

It does seem when I get on the computer,  that it does help me to get myself moving better.

So, while I am motivated, I will get on with some of my plans.

Larry, I am sorry to read your message this morning, but do appreciate your stating just how you feel.  I have you in my thoughts and prayers.  And, I hope that maybe, you will see some improvement shortly. We all have you in our thoughts, I know.

Will try to check back later.  I want to see how this turns out when I post it.  My writing has shown up in blue, but don't know how that happened.





" Live your life in such a way that the
entire planet doesn't dance in the
streets,  when  you lose your job !"


Larry, we are all in that area where nothing seems to work the way it did when we were in our 40's -50's but we just have to accept that. You are amazing in all that you do , now it is time for others to do for you.
 Stopping in to say hi to everyone makes our day  better, no need to write a lot , just say hi.

Roley, you should have seen the size of the fish!!! They serve on huge dinner plates and the fish was bigger than the plate!  I managed to eat the fish but didn't make it through the chips so they came home to feed the crow. :)

Gloria, our sugar is in 2 kg. bags which is 4.4 lbs Still a good deal.

We had a great time today, weather was perfect, store was like a can of sardines but I got in and out in jig time.
Now to rest......maybe..  Went over to the bakery and picked up 4 cream puffs, two for us and two for our neighbours. I sure don't feel like moving too far with all that food in me.
I can't change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails

I chose my usual, bold,size 4 and Navy, and this is what I see. so, i will just go ahead and post. I slept away most of the morning. Had a light breakfast and  back to sleep. I like this type that I can read..wonder how it prints out. Keeps us on our toes doesn't it ? Still having a lot of hard breathing even  after the albuteral and oxygen. 

Larry, dear friend, sounds like you and I are walking the same path. My problem is lungs, yours is heart, but one can't function without the other, so we will do the best with what we have, and know that we are not alone.God is right here beside us, giving us just enough to type a few greetings, and know we are not alone in our ailments. I send you a commiserating big hug.

I'm going to put a small pizza in the microwave and call it lunch. I had a  banana and tiny donut for breakfast.....coffee too  of course.

Enough of this patter..I do like the large print. Lets see what happens when I click on post.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Good afternoon from another stormy day in the Mile High City.  We started out with sunshine, but this storm moved in FAST and it is snowing like crazy.  I know we need the moisture and I am thankful we are getting it, HOWEVER my psyche says, "I REALLY need some sunshine in my life right now"❣️❣️

Yesterday went very well for Michele medically. They hit three areas in her brain with the gamma knife. Our day spent with the grands was great.  We played all kinds of games and everyone laughed and enjoyed each other's company. We did spend the night Thursday, as a storm was predicted and we did not want to take a chance on having any problems getting down to Dave's.  A friend of Dave and Michele brought in a wonderful meal for all of us, and we had a pleasant Valentines Evening.  Yesterday Dave and Michele had to leave the house at 6 AM to get to the gamma knife appointment.  The procedure did not take much over three quarters of an hour but all of the preparation took a couple of hours, then the recovery time.  Then on their way towards home they had a appointment with the oncologist......this is the same oncologist Michele had before.  When he came in the door he announced, "everything is GOOD news", which immediately put them at ease.  She will see another oncologist this coming Thursday, and then together they will make a treatment plan.  The first thing she will have to do is get a port put in before any treatment starts.  Then they are thinking 12 treatments of chemo, done every two weeks.  After this is complete they will she how much the tumor in the lung has shrunk.  If it has, then that will be all of the chemo, but in the end they will go in and still remove that section of her lung.  I did not like this thought, but I know they are taking every precautionary measure that they have it all.  My final comment is Michele continues to be super positive and refuses to let this cancer get her down😤😤🙏

I must admit, I did have a bit of a thought of, "and this is ALL good news"?  Shame on me, as I know as bad as all of this treatment sounds it it IS all good news, as it is ALL treatable and it could be so much worse......

Thank you, BUBBLE for our nice new SS to post in. 

LARRY, I can not help but feel sad and down to read your most honest post of your thought on your current health situation. Your honesty is appreciated and we do understand that you have to face reality, however with our continued positive thoughts and prayers for you, I certainly hope you can continue to take a less active roll in life so that you will have a good long time left to share time with us.  HUGS to you❣️

I must run, but I want you all to know tha5 I enjoy each and every one of your posts and I hope you all enjoy a good rest of your day. 



Just got back from the store... had to run the defroster & wipers, since below freezing I'm not sure what to call it. Certainly not those big fluffy snow flakes I was wishing for. Had a very nice trip, well, not so much the trip but the discovery in the store. I had forgotten we had Valentine Day this week but discovered on one shelf "Buy one, get one free"... my fav candy, Russell Stover turtles... oh, yum. Usually one of my kids will slip me a box but they are all into the health food craze right now, got to admire them but no fun to eat with anymore.  :-\  I had dessert first so better think about "what's for supper".

Jenn, I am amazed at Michele's attitude, what a wonder. Prayers as long as needed to keep that girl healthy to be an inspiration to her family and everyone that knows her. Thanks for sharing her ordeal with us, sure makes my aches & pains look tiny in comparison. I do check the Monarch Pass web cam & then Salida & Buena Vista.... the pass has gotten a lot more than the lower levels so hope it won't be a fire year.

Amy, my mouth waters at the sound of your fish..... afraid we do not get good fish here, too far from the coast. ALL of the frozen fish that is unbreaded (in stores & Sam's Club) comes from China and I don't want their fish. So little actual fish meat in the breaded types. My butcher told me he can get the Pacific Northwest fish.... at about 4 times the price. One of those things we have to tolerate living in the heart of the country where cattle, hogs & chickens are raised. It is a sight to see when driving across the Flint Hills of Kansas, all the cattle grazing on those rolling hills. Not so pleasant sight or smell when driving past huge feed lots. barf-barf :P Like you, anything I can't eat goes to feed critters, just can't put into trash when it can nourish something.

June, looks like the size & colors are behaving today~  :thumbup: 

I'd share my pecan turtles with all of you if you lived closer. You never mention if you like sweets..... we all know Lloyd does. I still love the salty snacks, came home with Cheetos... is that not a BAD Shirley?  :-[   Better go eat my supper before I trip over another turtle.


Lost my post!  I'm screaming into the air! 

Click for Lewisburg,Pennsylvania Forecast


SHIRLEY, I can relate with you regarding family members that ONLY eat healthy foods...... I do have to be careful of many things, but we all need a treat sometimes.  I hope you had some dinner before you FELL over another turtle! Thank you for your kind wishes for Michele.  I just checked and the conditions in Eagle are not good and they are worsening.....Kurt and Family will not leave Dallas until 7 something tonight which means the worsening of the weather conditions are a big concern. 

Sorry JANE, i hear your scream all the way here in the Rocky Mountains.....so upsetting when we loose a post.  It happens to all of us, so we all can understand your frustration.

I think you forgot to put a link to here in the last SodaShop.
Also, JUNE can't find this new place.

RAMMEL, there definitely IS a link to this....that is how I got here, and JUNE posted earlier, so she found her way!
