  • Oldiesmann: Heard from them this afternoon. The cost of repairs ended up being far more than they originally estimated and about $1200 more than what they say the car is worth (which is a little more than what I paid for it), so they're going to total it.

PHYLLIS, that was a great article about Lebanon bologna and I've also heard it called "summr sausage" most of my life.  I have NEVER heard it referred to as just plain "bologna".  It's always got a first name.  I never really cared for the lunch meat that is just plain bologna. 

LLOYD, I'm not the one who lives in Wichita.  That's SHIRLEY and I did see your note to her.  Maybe she's too busy dealing with her wind damage to think about anything else.  She'll probably see these notes and be in touch with you. 

I have to think about something to do for supper.  I still have some potatoes left over but I'm getting tired of them.  I'm thinking abut Chinese.  I have some fixins in the freezer.  Maybe that's what I'll do.

LARRY, to hear you're feeling better today.  Keep it up.

I'll try to get back but I'm buried in paper work.  I try to get it put away every night but I have so many things going on right now that there are more piles of paper than I know what to do with.

Enjoy the rest if your day.  It was created for you!

Sandy, you are right about the contents of bologna but I still ate a lot of it over the years.  You must have a very talented grand daughter to attend and graduate art school.  How is she using her talents in that regard?

Maggie is working at a Photo Shoppe
while contemplating just what her future
will be using her Art Degree. 

She does a lot of private portrait
requests in her spare time.  She is
a gifted portrait artist and
word of mouth gets her many jobs.

She is still young and lives at home...

The day actually turned out really nice! Enjoyed listening to the red winged blackbirds sing in the trees.
I received my 3rd phone call for "Microsoft" wanting to help me with my computer problem. This time I got his number and name...told him I would call him back , didn't say what year though. The second call, I told him this was a scam and to get a real job...he told me I was right!!

The lady at physio told hubby to take the day off from the exercise she gave him to do daily. Tomorrow he can start up again if he is up to it.

Managed to do a bit more sewing this afternoon and anxious to see what this one will look like. All 3 inch squares sewn together, I think it will be a cute camp quilt for some little girl and I have enough blocks leftover to do a boys camp quilt.

Larry, hubby always wants all beef bologna, says you don't have to hang onto it with sand paper mitts to eat it.

Jane,  I can relate to the paper work, mine are either quilt patterns or recipes but I need to put them in sleeves and in the binder..

Enjoy your evening everyone..

Shirley

Right, Jane, I have been busy with storm damage but was sure I commented to Lloyd when he first mentioned heading this way.  My mother used to talk about "summer sausage" but I didn't know what it was. Would love to taste your kind. I do limit any of the preserved meats because of salt, nitrates & nitrites.... had to give all up for a year or so because of terrible headaches. Was the cause because after not having headaches for a year I ate 2 pieces of bacon & about 24 hours later that nagging pain was going across the top of my head & to my eye. Been 30 years since I discovered that was the cause of my "chronic sinusitis" and now I can indulge without pain, but don't push it too often. 

SO, Lloyd, I will tell you again that I'd be delighted to meet you & Nancy, probably you would be on highway 400 or as we call it, Kellogg, in Wichita. WEST SIDE!  When I come from MO I take I-35 out of Kansas City to Emporia, I get on the turnpike at Emporia & it costs me $4. to drive into El Dorado (price just went up). Much easier drive than staying on highway #50 & going through all the little towns. I get off at the 2nd exit which is El Dorado & take the loup around Wichita to the west side.

A problem with that now is they are tearing up one intersection so will be re-routed around, last I heard was you have to go all the way to Kellogg (highway 400 on the maps)... anyway. There is a Walmart on the west side, after going through downtown Wichita, fast moving traffic, but if you use a GPS or have one of the Rand McNally Atlas that Walmart sells, it will show you where to get off.  If you stop at one of the Walmarts on the east side of town it is like driving from Warrensburg to Sedalia for me... about 30 miles across town in traffic, so if you let me know your route, when you are heading this way, I will e-mail you my phone number & pick the easiest off & on for you & Nancy.

I really dread having that intersection torn up but it is a bad one that causes lots of wrecks with off & on nightmare. I really don't know the best route to get around the city when they close that down, it will catch you even if you take highway #50 instead of the turnpike as they all meet at that intersection. The turnpike used to have an off ramp on the east side of town so you could take that & come on through to the West Kellogg Walmart. I'm trying to explain so when you look at a map you can see what I am talking about. I will send my phone number, don't want to put it on here with all the robo calls I get, don't need more! Do you still have the same e-mail address?

Oh, all those kinds of lunch meats my husband & father loved, haven't thought about them for years. My Kroger store has the unsliced bologna so I buy a chunk once a year & put a slice of cheese on top of bologna about as thick as the bread & enjoy. Didn't have it in the house often as not good for my husband & he loved it.

Better get moving, just ordered cat food & litter from Chewy & need to check my list before it gets dark. 61° right now. Should have cleaned out leaves today but too lazy. Yard is starting to green up so won't be long before cutting off the brown. I pay $40. a week for him to mow & trim along the driveway... he doesn't do quite as good of job as the crew I had before but he mows me a path to the river & the other crew didn't do that. Nice kid, friend of one of my grands, firefighter as main job & has all the lawns he wants to take care of on his off days. I have some jobs (cleaning bugs out of the recessed light fixtures under the over hang all around the house) that need someone willing to get up on the ladder & lift those glass covers down to hand them to me to clean.... not hard work but I have trouble pulling those hinges down on the ladder... anyway, my son said his son was needing extra money & I offered $25. an hour if he was interested. He is working on his Masters in Bio-Med-Engineering. Don't know if he got the word but I haven't heard back. Last time the bugs got cleaned out my youngest son was here & put in LED lights for me & I cleaned the glass. He just doesn't have time to keep up with his own place when in town, his work sends him all over the world pretty often.

Spring has sprung & few more weeks the cover will come off the pool, that will be a big chunk of money because the pool guy prices don't seem to have a bottom line. First time for uncovering with the new cover so will watch how he does it. I know I can't handle it myself & not sure I want to risk having anyone else do it. Pool is a pain in the neck but not another place I want to live, so have to gripe & go on. Can't leave a pool empty, would mildew & smell... just tolerate it & whine about all the money going down the drain!

Larry when I had a lawn crew give me an estimate on cleaning out the berm, it was $600. for starters... not new planting or anything. Labor is high here, wages for aircraft workers bump the prices as well as the amount they can draw for NOT working. I expect it would be more than $1,000 a month for yard & pool for 6-7 months of the year. I keep telling people that "it may be a shame I don't use the pool, but I also don't roll in the grass & have to take care of that as well..." If the pool gets used the chemicals are 10x more, so it just stays looking sparkling & cool, like a flower bed!

So that's my day.... 

Amy, I'll check for the red winged blackbirds again, they aren't too bashful to eat at my feeder so happy to have them show up. Sadly I suggested one guy "get an honest job" & he admitted he would love to. Had a foreign accent so I felt sorry for him.  :-\

Sandy, would love to see some of your gr-daughter's work. Tell her I painted hundreds of dog portraits over the years, prices kept going up but kept me as busy as I had time to paint. I would paint for my walls & what I enjoyed doing & go to a show in spring & fall and sell about everything I took. My paintings paid for camera equipment & all art supplies (including frames) plus "mad money" for camping trips. Mountain streams & windmill paintings were almost cash money. It is a great hobby that can pay for it's own supplies.

A good Monday evening to EVERYFRIEND.

This was a very long day for Michele and Dave.  We went to their home to stay with the grands as they are on spring break this week, while mom and dad went to the hospital to have the Chemo.  They had to be there at 9 and did not finish until 5 PM. Because it is the first dose, they had to give her several pre drugs, and then when it did start the chemo it seemed to go very slow.  I have not been told the details about the new plan of Chemo, but found out this morning that she is now and will be taking 8 pills a day of various  chemo drugs, all of which have very bad side effects, for 6 months.  We have been told to expected this treatment to be rough on her.  I saw the concern in Dave more than I have ever seen before and I worry about him.  He KNOWS the worse of all of this and it has really taken a toll on him.  They both continue to be as positive as they can be, especially for the children. Again, I thank you all for your continued support, it means the world to me. 

SHIRLEY, as soon as I first heard about the possible problems with the Boeing 737 Max Plane, I thought about your family members who have been associated to this plane.  I hope the findings will be done with fairness to everyone involved. 

I wish you all a good night of rest.

Good morning everyone..

-4° F here this morning but they say it is to be a nice sunny day.
 We are off to the vet this morning for Jesse's last set of needles for now. It will be interesting to see just how much he weighs. He is above my knees now and I hope he stops growing before he reaches my hips!

Jenny, prayers for all, especially Michele.With her positive attitude and help all around she will come through this. Tis interesting on how they treat the different forms of cancer, my friend took a pill and my husband had his given through a PICC line every other week but had pills to take ahead of the treatment.

Shirley, this is the information I found if I had of done what was said. I think no matter what I would find any job other than stealing from others.

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/ctrl-windows-key-r-scam/9c5f848e-1265-4125-a58d-15bf7b6889da

Jane, I have never heard of crushing potato chips on a sandwich but will give it a try next time. Right now we are eating tomato sandwiches. We bought some nice hot house ones which I wasn't sure of the taste but found they were really good. So having that on homemade bread goes down real nice.
Now for the good field tomatoes but that will be a long wait!

Need to chase the dust bunnies before VON gets here....not sure if it will be before the trip to the vet or after.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning everyone. well I red through all that showed up for yesterday & and forget who say's what before i get to the next one done. do not think i have altimeters but sure have some trimmers. Shirley do not hit me again I will try to do better. I went to V A yesterday , the doctor was off sick so seen a nurse practitioner. she put compression legions on me and told me to start using my leg pumps Daley on both lower legs. that sucks, but if it fixes my legs OK. have a good day see you all Later.

Lloyd

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend!  The doggies have had their pill and I have my coffee and we're in waiting mode.

JENNY, before I forget, of course Michele has my prayers and will continue to have them.  But this morning I'm sending an email to our church secretary to put her on the prayer list and keep her there for the next 6 months while she has her treatments.  The will give her in the neighborhood of 250 extra prayers every Sunday and I know there are many people at church who use the prayer list on a daily basis.  God will certainly know there are lots of people down here pulling for your Michele and Family!


I have an order for pb chocolate saltines to be delivered to my grandniece, Bethany at her college during finals week.  So I'm thinking that today would be a good time to begin that job.  When they're finished and ready to deliver I'll relax a bit.  I'm doing this for my sister (her grandmother) and I'm getting a pound of Starbucks coffee to pay the bill.  She wanted to make sure SHE gets the credit for sending the treat because she did Bridget's favorite during her four years of finals week.

My next door neighbors have returned from Florida.  That's a sure sign of SPRING.  But now I have to be on my best behavior.  No more loud singing with the windows open or when I'm outside.  I can't carry a tune in a bucket!

I wish you all a great day!  Make it your own in every way.

Oh, the Chocolate Toffee Saltines.....my mouth is watering.  To my mind they taste just like Heath Bars and those were always my favorite.  But, I dare not make any or start eating them.....if I start I just can't stop!

Sun is shining though it isn't as bright as usual.  Chilly when I got up at 6:30  but will warm up soon and maybe I'll sit out on the deck for awhile.  I enjoyed doing that yesterday.

Nitrites in lunch meat bother me, too, so don't eat them often but now and then I just can't resist.  Once in awhile, Shirley, I buy about an inch chunk of bologna, grind it up, add sweet pickle relish and Kraft Miracle Whip to make a meat spread like my Mother made.  We kids grew up on that!

Jenny, I feel so sorry for Michelle (and Dave and the kids) having to go through the terrible treatments but I'm praying that they will be successful and when this cancer is gone she will never ever have to deal with it again.

No plans for today except for household laundry.  I still have several library books so will try to catch up before they come due.

Phyliss ,we loved that too as kids. I sent it once to school and it came back ...the kids at school said it was dog meat!! Never sent it again.  I think of it as a treat ,one that I haven't had in a while......you have my mouth watering for some now.

Hi Everyone. We have another beautiful day ahead.  It is to be partly cloudy this morning and then clear this afternoon getting into the high 50's.  I have a few things I want to accomplish this morning involving our computers and then will take it easy the rest of the day. Yesterday morning was pretty good for me for awhile and then nothing I tried seemed to work and I got pretty frustrated.  I was very exhausted the rest of the day and evening but had a good nights sleep and ready to try again, hopefully with better results.  I do have to refill my medicine boxes for two weeks this morning, a job I really don't like doing but must be done.

I read all the postings since yesterday on my iPhone while laying in bed this morning.  I am just going to check in this morning.

Joy

Good morning.  I have not been here for a couple days.  Just got busy and the days just got away from me 

Nothing special happened, so don't really have any big news to tell.

I have to go have my taxes done today and I hope I have all the papers this time.  Was there a couple weeks ago and had forgotten one of the papers I needed. 

Sounds like everyone is doing pretty well. Sure wish there was some news from our June !  She sure is missed.

I will try to get back later today.

Have a wonderful afternoon

Well, had a much too long post, hit the wrong key & instead of copying, it poofed it away. Such is life. Need to go rake those leaves before rain, I had not heard a word about WIND and it is really blowing hard now. Not a good idea to rake & let the wind blow the leaves on down the street... but since they aren't from MY trees, maybe I should.  :-\

Larry, I spend half my days being frustrated with these "techie" things...  :bonk:  :dizzy:  :sealedlips: hope today is better.

Phyllis, our meat spread was made with left over roast beef ground up & pickle relish & mayo.... we thought "lunch meat" was too expensive except on special occasions. Mom was a firm believer in Adele Davis' "You Are What You Eat" book so combined that with her farm cooking & Dad's mother's French cooking, we rarely ate anything that wasn't home grown or raised. I was a terrible eater and would have lived on peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.

Joy, I have that sinking feeling every time someone mentions taxes.  Mine were sent in long ago & have pangs that "what if I missed something?"  I use the same tax guy so he would have caught anything missing, cashing the I-bonds was the kicker & since they had doubled since we bought them in 2001, was a big hit to the bill!

Going to do something, the trees are rocking so may not do leaves after all. Would love a nap....

Amy

Another lovely day, a bit cold but all in all not bad. We did run into a bit of snow on the way home but it soon went away. The vet was pleased with how the pup has come along. Jesse gained 10 lbs from a month ago. He has an appointment on Apr for neutering and to remove a dew claw.  Hope that is it for a while..

Tomorrow we are off to the city (the other way) for eye appointments then swing over to the fabric shop and pick up a ruler that I had ordered in. I am not sure if I will be able to say hello in the morning or not, depends on how rushed we are. Usually when you need to get up that is the time you want to sleep in. :(

Amy, I really want a dog, a big dog... to hug. Love hearing about Jesse growing up. But, with these cats so afraid of dogs I guess I won't get one now. Seems I have another cat that must learn to travel, she didn't go across the street to eat while I was gone. Makes me feel bad that she thinks this is home and I'm not taking care of her.

I raked up piles of leaves from the front sidewalk & ran through the leaf mulcher, wind kept blowing them back to the porch but I managed to get enough in a bag to call it quits.  I am not exaggerating when I say not one leaf out of hundreds came from my tree!  The way this house sits all leaves just stop & swirl in my front yard & then blow up to the front porch. Have to 4x4 "fences" that are 2 rails high that just snug them right up the sidewalk so they don't blow on. Had a little rain, enough to wet down the leaves so won't be cleaning up any more for a few days. I watered the jonquils & Japanese iris, still need to uncover the lily of the valley so they can pop up. Busy time of year.

I visited KFC again tonight, ate too much so ready to go to sleep. I always get carry out & come home to eat in front of TV.  I had 4 robo calls during the time I was trying to eat!  Made the mistake of answering the first one since it was about the time my daughter usually calls... I screamed at a recording! Did not pick up the others but had to go see that it wasn't someone I knew. You'd think we could have geeks as smart as the ones doing this & could damage their equipment by pushing a button. Wouldn't that be a hoot, just blow up their head sets so they couldn't call again!

Think I'll go get comfy & may not wake up until morning. Cats get one more meal before bedtime. Callie is laying on the sofa across the room, snoring so loud I had to stop typing to see what the noise was. TV not on, I was going to the other room. I still have not found June's saying that I love so much. Will have to check the computer downstairs... haven't turned it on since being gone last week.  I copied it back in the old days of Bis' Nest... bet you know what I'm talking about, Gloria.

Good evening....I am much later than I would like to be. 

Once again I than you all so much for your kind words of support.....

JANE, no one could ask for anything more than a  LOT of prayers from others, so I thank you so much for adding Michele to your church pray group....we all know that prayer do work and I am very thankful to you for what you have done.

AMY, Michele does have a pic line and will receiver her chemo through it every two weeks and then takes all the pills daily also. 

Happily I want to say Michele did well today.  She is extremely tired, but has minimal side effects today.  The worse is a rash all over her face but even it is not as bad as expected.

I wish you all a good night of rest.

Missing Our June so much.....her comforting words were always so appreciated....I miss them.

Good morning everyone. I read that some of you seam to think that baloina is junk meat. well years ago was true but not now days, it is made with the best cuts of ham and spices. get on youtube and google it or if you are close to a processing plant go visit it they will let you take a guided tour. Have a great day. that is what i would do when I was picking up and delivering to food plants. inserting how things are made, and what are in them. taste before you judge. when I was driving a truck over the road I always asked to tour the plants and usually got a guided tour. Have a great day.

Good morning everyone. Wonder what I can get into today. Right now I feel more like going back to sleep. I am getting bad. Do not feel like doing much of anything lately. I think I am more than ready to have open windows and going out and enjoying some warm days without wind. March has been living up to it's winds here. No matter how I wear layers when I go out thinking it is warm enough the wind cuts through the layers and hits the old bones.
YIKES  just heard on local weather tomorrow rain but this area it will be snow. When I pulled up the shades this morning and looked out everything had frost and the only snow was the piles from the plows.

SHIRLEY  I never answer my phone unless I know the number calling, I let the machine get the calls. Most times they hangup when the machine answers them. Had 3 yesterday about my college loan-never had that and a couple more about my vehicle-my car went to the junkyard 10 years ago. Wish I had an empty port on this lemon to plug in my old external, I have many of Joan's stories from the Nest on there.

JENNY  I think we are all praying for Michelle. No one should have to suffer with that big C. I don't think there is one family that has escaped it.

Have a good day.

Good morning on a chilly, gray day.  I have no plans today so it doesn't really matter what the weather outside my door is like.  I poached some chicken breasts yesterday so think I will make some chicken salad for our lunch.  That is about as far as my plans have gotten.  I must get out someday soon and have my car go through its 10,000 mile check-up.  I don't anticipate any problems but if something is lurking I want it taken care of so I don't find myself stalled somewhere in traffic.

Can't get interested in any of the basketball tournaments so will probably continue reading and trying to finish several library books.  I always download, or bring home, too many books at a time.  I am afraid I have made bad choices and will be bored with one and I won't have a "fall back" to go to.  I no longer am willing to plow through a book to the end if it I find it uninteresting.  After a couple of chapters if it hasn't gotten my attention, back it goes.

Gosh, that all sounds like it is shaping up to be a boring day.  Oh, well, some days are like that, aren't they?

Take care, All.

Hi Everyone on this first day of Spring. It is starting out clear skies but will only get into the low 60's today.  I took my shower this morning and then laid down and read all of the postings since I posted yesterday.  I just don't have the energy left this morning to offer individual comments so will said say good morning as I check in. I have decided my new occupation is "professional rester" as that seems about all I do anymore.

Aw, spring starts today & I think I've used up a whole box of Kleenex already... working in that wind & dry leaves brought "hay fever" to a peak. Got a feeling this will be one long season of sneezing. Had to fry my egg this morning so decided to hard boil another pan full.... 2 of them cracked & puffed out so I peeled & put in a bowl to make egg salad. Been so long I couldn't remember what all I put in so came to the computer (what did we do before computers... I know! We had recipe books!) Must go to the store, no celery in the house or even a squeeze of lemon. I'm pretty sure I never put lemon in. A glass of fresh squeezed lemonade sounds good, though, doesn't it?  I've been keeping hard boiled eggs on hand a lot lately, nice to not have to wash a skillet to fry one egg & they are always convenient in the RV for a quickie pick up. News media bashing eggs again... REALLY?

Gloria, I woke up early & went back to sleep. Tiger was sleeping beside me & didn't move. The wind is NOT blowing so guess I will tidy up the yard. I didn't bother sweeping off the walk yesterday because the leaves were blowing right up to the porch faster than I could pick up. I've puttered around long enough that I don't dare go back to bed now or won't get a thing done today. Jobs have piled up. I wish I could find help that actually worked as hard as WE used to, but find it frustrating to see what little gets done in a couple hours these days. Sitting here isn't getting any of the jobs done, is it?  ::)

Oops, Larry, you snuck in.... I do like that title "professional rester"... I may have a degree in that already. My case I'm afraid just plain lazy & don't wanna do any work. I thoroughly enjoy being out in the woods in the RV with cats to snuggle with. No work hanging over my head, love to watch the different birds & look for wildlife. The cats are good about perking up when they see something different out the window so I raise up & have a look.
