Good morning everyone, raining again and 63°. Thunderstorms in the forecast about the time of rush hour.  63°  Wish my AC was in, at least could run it on dehumidify. Not a good day for all the runners in the Boston marathon. Wonder what they will do if it starts thundering and lightning while they are running. Because today is a Mass. holiday those in this area have till tomorrow to file their income tax. I never could wait till the last minute to file.

SHIRLEY  Easter is as late as can be this year. Like you it does not seem possible it is here already with the weather we have been having.

GLORIA de  prayers are with you. Hospice is a wonderful thing and will help so much.

JANE  like Arthur Godfrey used to say when he gave away items on his TV program "for free take, for buy, waste time." I agree, free things are always better. Your post was your green and easy to read.

BUBBLE  thank you for the new page and your graphics and wise words. I know I would never be able to come up with all those log words. Bad enough figuring how to say them.

Have a good day everyone. Glad I woke early and got to post before we get the Tstorms. Pouring right now.

Good morning everyone..

Well, I should not have said to put the snow shovels away the other day. We now have ground cover and the snow is still falling.

Nothing planned today just take the day as it comes. I know chasing dust bunnies is a must then maybe some sewing.

Gloria, we had thunder and lightning last night. Around 11:15 pm I took the pup out and one crack of thunder made him jump!!

Bubble, thank you for the new start page...love the bunnies.

Better get a move on...

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It started raining yesterday around noon and rained all afternoon and evening.  The doggies and I had retired for the night and I had just gone to sleep when I heard thunder in the distance.  It rolled and and in no time flat, I was wearing two very shaky, very scared doggies.  After it passed, they relaxed and I noticed that the numbers were off on the clock.  More than 500 customers lost power for about 7 hours due to that storm.

BUBBLE, thanks for the shiny new shoppe for visiting and for all the pictures and fun things.  I love the word thing.  I happen to be a word freak myself and I love it when someone comes up with something like that.

Today is a work day and I'll have to be getting ready pretty soon.  I hope you are all having a good beginning to your day.  If you are, keep it going!  Good days are the best!

Good Morning Everyone, from the
rainy rocky coast of Maine!

Thanks Bubble for our new quarters!!!

Today the Boston Marathon is being
run...   in the rain...   Good luck
to all who are out there running.. I
would think that running in the rain
would be better then running when it
is hot and humid.     

Have a good day,  Everyone..

What a miserable evening and night.  Had weather warnings all afternoon and night.  Flood watches, tornado watches, lightning and thunder warnings and rain, rain, rain.  I gathered some things to take to the basement in case the tornado watch turned to a warning.  Another serious alarm sounded just after ten.  Should I go to the basement or just go to bed?  Decided that whatever was going to happen my staying up wouldn't change anything.  So turned out the light and went to sleep.  More warnings during the night waking me up each time.  I'm tired and cranky this morning but everything is fine, the storms are gone and the sun is bright and beautiful.  Such is spring in N. Carolina.   ::)

I will get the laundry started after breakfast and then try to catch up on my sleep.  I don't think much else will get done today.  I will be a happier person once I get some nap time taken care of.


Merry Monday.  Looks as if our yucky weather has moved east and north.  Hang on.  Sunshine is on the way.


Hi Everyone.  We have a beautiful sunny day that will get up to 70 this afternoon.  I did wake up feeling better this morning.  I was able to take my shower this morning and each time I do it now I am finding new safeguards.  After I finished I laid down for the better part of of hour to recover some energy.  It is almost 10:30 now and haven't even eaten my breakfast/lunch, which I have at my desk and will eat as I work here this morning. 

They made a very wise decision to start the golf tournament early yesterday as they got it over and people safely off the course before the stormy weather hit the area.  Fortunately most of the rain and storm was either South or North of the Augusta area.  I did watch a lot of the tournament both Saturday and Sunday as well as quite a bit of the Thursday and Friday rounds.  It was a very good event with a lot of excitement in terms of who might win right up to the end.  It was really some accomplishment for Tiger considering two years ago he doubted he could ever play competitive again due to back problems. The young guys will have many opportunities for wins in the future.  Nothing on the schedule for today but tomorrow will be buy as have an appointment for a test at the hospital and need to have some blood drawn for some test ordered by the kidney doctor in preparation for my appointment with him in a couple of weeks.

I appreciate all of your comments but still not up to doing a lot of individual comments.

Lindancer, it sounds like you are very wise to get the Hospice Care.  Our experience when Stacey had that care for a few months was the care was excellent and it was helpful to have someone come in to help out as well as the nurse seeing you once a week.  I am sure they will give you good care. 

Mary Ann, like you I have tried to document everything in terms of our business affairs and have been sure both Pat and Scott are aware of where everything is.  I have done this for several years and each year I try to update the information in January.  One never knows when such information will be needed.  I never expected my health to fail so quickly as it has in the last 3 1/2 months.

Bubble, thanks for the new start for this week.  Your Easter graphic is right on and the other one is very enjoyable to view.

Phyllis, we also had a tornado watch for several hours yesterday, but we didn't even get much rain.  We have no place to go in case of a tornado but our laundry room or one of the bathrooms which have no windows.


Well, I have an unexpected day off today.  I reported in on time, only to find that WM is still out of power.  They offered me a choice....stay and work the overnight freight (which I can't lift) in the dark (where I can't see) or go home.  Guess what I did?

Now I have to make good use of this time because it's a gift.  I think I'm going to finish the candy that I promised to make for Bethany's finals week in May.  That will be one thing.  Then I'll go around my yard (which was nice and cleaned up) and pick up all the sticks that the wind blew down. 

LARRY, have a GOOD day!  You deserve it!

BBL to see what ya'll are up to!

A good Monday HELLO!

My goodness, seems most all of you were dealing with storms yesterday and last night. 

Thank you, BUBBLE, for our new SS and for the beautiful graphics.  You take such good care of us💞

Thank you, LLOYD, for the good suggestions about the pads that you can use either hot or cold....I will look at WalMart and see if I can find them.

JANE, will you get called back in when the power is restored?  Hopefully you will have a lot more plants to choose from when you go to look again.  Happy candy making.

AMY, I just hope you don't get a heavy snow and wish you had your snow tires back on the van⛄️ Poor pup, hope he did not get too frightened by the clap of thunder. 

My neck pain is definitely better today..... I am using my Tens and it is feeling good. 

Today is Chemo #3 for Michele.  We will do school pick up today for Kate, then get her to her dance practice.  It is to be nearly 70* and I am looking forward to a bit of sun on my back❣️❣️

I wish EVERYFRIEND a wonderful day and special HUGS for you, JACKIE❣️




Another day has come and is on its way out. The snow that fell is gone leaving old piled up or ice snow left.  :cheer: The dust bunnies still live :cheer:  We did go out for coffee and I picked a few things up at the bulk store and grocery store. Made 6 mini loaves of banana orange bread and three loaves of yeast bread. Plus put a pot of barley soup on to cook, which reminds me I need to pick up barely tomorrow while Kyle is getting his hair cut.

Jesse ,is thoroughly enjoying his time out with no leash on. He is a lot of fun to watch when he is making new discoveries. He chase a leaf till it went through the fence to the neighbours then stood with a perplexed look on his face.

Shirley, I am sure you are busy getting everything in order..now remember the one gown goes on by the front, then the next gown you put on like a housecoat....then you are not in a ICU gown... :-[  You know we will all want to hear about your time away so keep notes :) Hugs and prayers. You will ace this you know!

Jenny, hope you are feeling much better now..

Jane hope the power is back on for everyone..

Going to hit the shower and put my feet up

Enjoy your evening everyone.

They didn't call me to come in to run register so I had the whole day off.  I did learn that a tornado touched down about 5 miles from where I live.  No one was hurt but on house, several cars an minor damage to a church .

I finished the candy so that's ready.

Now I'm off to "set a spell"!  Hope everyfriend had a lovely day.  AMY glad the snow decided not to stay.  Are there any baked goods in the Hidey Hole?

SHIRLEY, relax!

Good evening thanks for kind words.

Larry, I think I am doing the right thing, for me. A nurse comes in once a week, but will come in the middle of the night if need.  y button is now hooked up to them.  My doctors are not happy with me, they try to talk me out of sign up. So for a few month I will be content. My DIL fromMass is coming down for a few days next week. Keith my nephew that was staying here with his father in NC. he had a stroke. The nephew to day has already left  You take care

Good morning everyone..

A beautiful sunny day here..

Waiting on VON to come then into the barber shop for hubby to get his hair cut. I just may get at the dust bunnies today when we get home. :thumbup:

Gloria de, good to see you and hope each day you feel better. We must do what is right for ourselves and it seems you are in control of that. hugs to you..

Jane, yes check the hidey hole for some goodies. I wanted to try the recipe to see if it would be one I would do for gifts next Christmas and it would be. There is a cherry ,chocolate chip one I want to try next.

Lloyd, happy to read you are on the mend...please stay that way.

Good morning everyone, yesterday was rain at  times during the day. Had company yesterday, Older Son and DIL with their grandson.  My 3 year old great grand came in and ran right to me and I got big hugs from him. He is strong and I got a really tight hugs from him. I look at him and thing of his red haired daddy at that age. What a shame about the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris burning. Imagine it too 200 years to build it.

AMY  we didn't get many thunder claps from all that rain and they sounded far off.

JANE  only all my Cox connections blinked yesterday, no power loss but the southern part of the state had a loss for a few hours. Too much rain, though.

PHYLLIS  we had peeks of sunshine yesterday, that was it. This morning the sky is blue and the sun is shining again.

LARRY  I have tried telling my sons where every thing is but they do not want to hear it.

JANE  a day off from a job is great till you get the paycheck.

JENNY  I like to sit on the porch with my back to the sun, feels good.

GLORIA  de  you are doing what you feel is best for you.

AMY  thank you. It was my birthday but just another day for me.

Have a good day.

Good Morning, Everyfriend!  Sunshine here today but not very warm.

First of all....

Happy Belated Birthday wishes, GLORIA!   I missed it, too and I'm sorry!

I had a doggie with a problem in the middle of the night.  She made it as far as the door and it took me too long to follow.  So I was cleaning carpet in the middle of the night.  Not much fun but I'm old enough to understand that these things happen.

I'm off to vacuum and dust a bit to get myself ready to celebrate Easter. 

I wish you all a very happy day and lots more of them to come.

Hi Everyone.  For the second day we have clear skies with a high expected of about 75 this afternoon. I was really embarrassed this morning as have it in my mind that today was my appointment for the ultra sound.  When I looked at the paperwork this morning is saw that it is next week just as my calendar right in front of me shows as well.  I had gotten up early and was all ready to go and was ready to fast this morning before having blood drawn after the test.  Fortunately there was no harm done as we didn't make a wasted trip.  Today is the day to fill my medicine boxes for the next two weeks and will have to order some medicines also.  I did empty the top shelf of the dishwasher this morning and also folded a load of clothing.  I think that is my limit for today. I had a good day yesterday and I think today is also going to be a good.

Interesting postings from yesterday and this morning.  I have let the time get away from me so I am just going to check in today and get busy on my medicine boxes and then lay down for my afternoon rest.

Gloria, I also want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday


Gloria, I also add HAPPY BIRTHDAY    :thumbup:

Click for Riverhead, NY Forecast


Gloria, another Belated Happy Birthday to you! 

I can relate to having a red head being full of hugs but mine is SO like his grandfather at that age, wrong hair color & only 2, but his mother (my gr-daughter) declares "it is her life job to keep that kid alive until he is 18".

Gloria de, you are wise with your decisions so not a time to question them now. I am sad that you are not having the doctors in charge that work endlessly to keep you alive, but I have known others that had a much more comfortable time under care of  Hospice. I do like their goal to keep the person pain free and in charge. Also hope they are good at keeping your computer on line to visit with us, right? 

Jane, my vaccum was going well after 10:00 pm last night. The cats all went outside so I got busy cleaning off this east end of the house with hardwood & slate floors, then did the swifter jet on slate & Bono on the hardwood. Have one end of it to finish today but went back to sleep for a couple hours. Sat. night Fitbit said I go 5 minutes less than 4 hours sleep with no nap Sunday & last night was under 5 hours. I had been working hard all week to get 6 hours per night but fell off the wagon. I understand about cleaning carpet in the middle of the night, but Tom's problem is he forgets he isn't outside...and then he is so happy he wants that to be HIS spot!  :knuppel2:

Amy, I do wish I could share these "blooming trees" with you. Absolutely the brightest colors I ever remember (and that eye doctor thinks I need cataract surgery!  ::) )  The wind is blowing the blossoms off and pulling the leaves out so fast can almost watch the change. Feels like we are going to have a few days of spring and summer will pounce on us. Your Jesse's delight with freedom is how these cats act when I walk them down to the river. They run & roll and seem to trust that I will watch out for them.

Jenn, hope your neck/back is better and that Michele's treatment went well. My friend was talking about her husband using his Tens, so I tried to explain to Andy about it for Pam's knees. He said they already had 2 versions of it. Her knees are "bone on bone" but she doesn't want to do surgery until she retires. The stem cell procedure seemed to help for a very short while but looks like she is back where she started. Instead of camping this year they are going to use another of their weeks in a "time share", but Andy & Pete still plan to camp with me at Mt.Princeton.  They did enjoy their week in a time share in Branson, MO and glad they are using them instead of losing. They have a couple & have "banked" the weeks as much as possible, but they did give their 2 kids & families plane tickets & used 2 of the 3 bedroom time shares in Hawaii last year & had a wonderful time.

Larry & Lloyd, good to read that you both are doing better, if you behave that's how it works.  :thumbup:

Callie, Phyllis & Sandy, wishing all of you sunshine & a beautiful day ahead. I'd better get moving or this day will be gone. Another trip to the store & more house cleaning for me.

Oops, you snuck in, Gloria de & Larry!  Larry, I am having an awful time keeping days straight this week. The mail has been and still that paperwork from the Cardio's office with instructions for tomorrow's heart cath not in the mail.


Just getting in here for a few minutes.

First,  Gloria,  I want to wish you a very Happy Belated Birthday and I am sorry I missed it yesterday.  Sounds like it was a nice day since you got to see your little great-grandson. That made the day extra special !!!

Shirley,  I certainly want to wish you GOOD LUCK on your procedure tomorrow.  I am sure you will be fine, but I can understand how apprehensive you are feeling.  Just take it easy and slow down for a few days.

Larry, nice to see your message today.  Glad you felt up to do a couple little chores.  I am sure Pat was glad for your help. 

Jane, so sorry you had to clean up the carpet during the night.  That is one reason why I can't have any more animals.  Something like that would be so difficult for me to do.  I had thought about getting a little kitten,  but I don't think I would be able to handle a litter box.  My years of having animals is over, I am sure. 

Gloria de,  It sounds like you are doing just what you want to do.  It all has to be your decisions.   You know what is best for you.

It is a pretty sunny day, with hardly any wind.  Not like yesterday !  The wind was terrible.  Nice to see the pretty blue sky and the sun so bright.  Still a little chilly, tho.

Have a good rest of the afternoon.   HI !!! i to all the other friends.



I'm ready to relax!  I started this day with
*Carpet cleaning in the middle of the night
*Up and out with the doggies at 6:30
*Coffee and wait for the boinger after the doggie's pill
*Breakfast for all of us
*Vacuum...I planned on the hall and living room but ended up doing all three bedrooms, too.
*A spot of dusting and then cleaning up after
*Lunch and  couple of games on the computer
*Went outside and cleaned up all the doggie land mines in the yard.
*then cleaned up a enough downed sticks from the storm to have a lovely bonfire...if I wanted one.
Now i'm goofing off.  OOPS! forgot...I have a load of wash in the dryer and one in the washer to go in the dryer.  I'll have to deal with that before the goofing off can begin.

SHIRLEY, just in case I forget to say so, my prayers are with you tomorrow.  May God guide the hands of all the medical staff and may he keep you in his hand also. 

Bye for now!

well Shirley no matter how well I behave things happen. If not for bad luck I would have no luck at all, I have been working on the R V trying to get it ready to hit the road. as I never got fast enough to winter rise the R V and the water filter froze an burst, so I today installed a new one. hope nothing else goes wrong or is, Bob is supposed to help me check it out tomorrow,


Mary Ann

Shirley, best of luck with your surgery tomorrow.  We'll be thinking of you.
