Larry, two of my friends are dealing with the same type of memory loss you're describing.
We'll love you just the same as we always have and I'm sure we'll be patient with your posts.

Monday didn't turn out to be as Merry as I'd hoped.

Just before son arrived for Fridge Fallout and new computer help....the a/c began blowing hot air again!  Same repairman came again and added coolant. He said he suspected that would be the problem.  I remembered his mentioning that on Sunday but simply didn't think to call the office and report on Monday morning.
However, he only charged me for the coolant and the Monday appointment (because, he said, that one "resolved the issue"...meaning, I guess, that he actually had to do some work ) and, since I have an annual contract for a/c-furnace checkups, I got a discount on the after-hours call.

So far, all is well and I really hope it stays that way.

Son is going to talk with the Geek who set up the computer because he isn't happy with the results.  Can't do anything about having to redo all the web sites I had in Favorites but there are other things that seem to have been filed "creatively". 

I can use e-mail and, obviously, can get in here.  Also have most favorite web sites (like the ship and NYC web cams and e-books) on my Tablet.

Hope things are getting back to normal.

Also hoping Everyfriend Everywhere has an Enjoyable Day.

Denver

Good morning❣️

LARRY, we in no way think anything other than sheer gratitude that you are sharing your everyday challenge with us.  You have opened our eyes up to so much and we do appreciate you for this. Any post from you is accepted with joy that you are coming in to say you are here, and any more that you can add is a bonus for us❣️ Thank you💞 Please Tell Pat HAPPY BIRTHDAY for me. 

AMY, I hope you will feel much better very soon.  You are the ol Timex Watch, no matter what you just keep on a ticking!  Can't let any grass grow under your feet, can ya? Best of luck to Kyle in getting his drivers license back.

JANE, I sure enjoy reading all that you accomplish in a day.  What a nice surprise to see your grass was cut while you were at the movie🥰.

Congratulations on your new car, LLOYD. 

GLORIA, I hope you got out for a bit of fresh air before it turned too hot!  Right now we still have our doors open but we must shut them soon as the temperatures are rising!

FEEL BETTER, PHYLLIS 💐💐

JOY, a slow start is just your body saying I need a bit more time🥰🥰

CALLIE, sorry your Monday proved to not be so MERRY!  Glad the A/C is up and running good now after the Freon!  Hope it continues! 

I must get busy......enjoy the rest of your day, EVERYFRIEND🥰

Larry, we are all with you on this journey because you have allowed us.... so as the eternal cheerleader, I'm begging you to blame the morphine and not your brain function that is causing this latest problem! Your mind is still as sharp as ever, don't doubt that.... but the relief you feel from the morphine will also let your mind rest as well. It is a package deal and do thank God it is available! Relax, talk to us when you feel like it and know we are in your corner the whole way. Because of you we will know better what we can do to help our families and ourselves. God give you peace as this stage of life moves on for you, I know you have FAITH to lean on, Believe, HE is with you.

Good Afternoon Everyone...
It is another beautiful day
here on the rocky coast of Maine. 
low humidity...  my favorite. 

Hang in there Larry...  we Love YOU !

I have to start seeing a doctor about having my cataracts taken care of ... It will be
a few months...but eventually I will have
them removed.

LARRY, I feel nothing but pride in the fact of knowing you!  You have shared so much with all of us and you just keep on keeping on!  Sometimes after I read what you've been coping with, I feel ashamed of some of my feelings.  I have so much and I need to appreciate it.  You've helped me to see that!  Thank you just for being YOU and for being my FRIEND! 

Today was NOT a good day but I'll get over it!

Good morning everyone..

Marking my spot as we are soon off to the cardio Dr and have to leave here at 6:00am

Jane, may today be a better day for you. Lots of smiles, giggles and hugs. Think Rudolf has gone back to the north and I do hope he stays there. Nothing worse than having a nose run faster than ones feet!!!

Enjoy your day everyone..

good Morning everyone. It is 66º and calling for mid to high 80's today. I got a late night to bed but got 7.5 hours sleep. feel pretty good. we are going to go this afternoon to try to get the title picked up and go pay sales tax and get the license transfused. tomorrow we are planning to go to Bronson Mo. and go on a dinner cruse on the Bronson bell. we are going to start playing more.  Have a great day everyone.

Good morning!  I am back to normal...almost.  Feeling better today after a rough couple of days that were my own fault.  I ate corn on the cob which is something my Gastroenterology doctor has said I must not do because for Ileostomy people it can cause blockage. Thought I was going to have to go into the hospital again for surgery.  That has happened twice in the past but luckily didn't have to this time. 

It is cloudy here with severe weather predicted for this afternoon so I want to stir around and get to the store this morning.  I don't feel like it too much but we have to eat.  I don't like ordering on line because I am a touchy/feely person that likes to look at and lightly squeeze fresh produce.  I still haven't been able to trust a "shopper" to be as picky as I am.

Also, I have to deal with a LOT of cucumbers and yellow squash my neighbor brought over yesterday on top of I still have a lot of peaches to take care of that a former neighbor brought to me a few days ago.  I made Peach Jam in the Instant Pot with a big bunch of them.  It turned out to be a little bit more runny than I like jam to be because the peaches were so nice and juicy.  I put it back in the IP on Slow Cooker for about an hour and a half yesterday so it would cook down and it turned out just right.  So good!  I think I'll go toast a slice of bread and put some jam on it for my breakfast. 

Larry, I echo what others have said here.  We treasure you and are with you, at least in thought, while you make your journey.

Take care, Everyone.  I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Hi everyone. As far as I know I didn't take a sleeping pill last evening and Pat checked my medicine carefully for then and again today. I had gotten an extra sleeping pill in my noon medicine box yesterday. Unfortunately, as I sit here at my big computer with the oxygen on I am again dozing off to sleep again this morning. It is still about 3 hours before the aid will get here at 9 am to help me with my bath.

Scott will be over this morning to help us. Pat hopes to get a hair appointment this morning as the lady is suppose to be back from her vacation. I am not going to worry about getting a haircut at this time as not likely that I will be going out very much other than for a planned drive.

I had a nice visit yesterday afternoon from our Associate Pastor who is a kind and caring man and he is going to ask our new pastor to try and come and visit with me although going into a pastorate involving over 500 members to from one with about half that is quite a workload increase.

I was able to accomplish a couple of things yesterday like getting the Ring doorbell account canceled and now know I will have to deal with Dish again in terms of the remote controls that are suppose to be a part of the large smart TV control package that if you have Dish you see on the screen all the time.

The rest of the day I will probably just try to deal with the breathlessness by staying on the oxygen. I think finally, after seeming to say it over and over, this may be the day that Scott puts up the grab bars and gets things ready for the carpet removal and replacement with the vinyl. So it should be a pretty quiet day. I seem to be in my right mind this morning, which is encouraging if I could only stay awake.

Once again if my postings take some strange turns today don't be alarmed as our minds can do some strange things.

Janet, as I think back over a period of time I realize things have been happening and not just recently.  I remain optimistic and knowing I have the support from you all, is very encouraging.  I must admit I have never been this frightened in my life.  I have decided to start reducing the clutter in my life and am going to  return  all of the blue tooth devices I have acquired.  I have a beautiful TV with great sound and why complicate my life.  I am fortunate in that my family is very supportive of me and I know they will always be there for me and we as a society now have a greater awareness than 20 years ago. Thank you and all of you for your support of my loving family.  I went through this with my Mother and know it is a difficult family journey.  I also hope it is just medications but now sure that reflects any reality to what has happened over a long period of time.

I think I have tgo give up this morning and realize I just can't stay awake to write an intelligent posting.  I did make some rather long comments over in the Christian Photographer and Norm's Bait and Tackle Shoppe discussions.

Just a word to Lloyd, go online and look up the model and make of your car and you will likely find the whole owner's manual as a long PDF file.

well i was setting here reading over post. Larry i don't take sleeping pills and still do that sleep thing especially watching  T V. I think that goes with old age anyway. when I was young and driving over the road could go several days and night's with little or no sleep. but sleep comes often now days but the nap's make it hard to go to sleep at night.

Good morning. Just marking my place and I will get back later.  I have been  missing for a couple days.  Nothing wrong, just haven't taken the time to post anything important.  I need to go back and read some of the messages that I have missed.  I have not be up too long and need to get something to eat.  Have a great day.

Good morning everyone. Going to be a hot humid day here, already 76°. I already dread it.

LARRY  I never thought you were asking for pity. I think you are a brave man the way you are facing what is ahead of you. I appreciate what you tell us. I thinks we all dread dementia, I know I do. Your posts are always informative and much appreciated. You help all of us. I do not want to be a burden to my family. They have enough going on in their lives. Prayers are being said for you and your family.

CALLIE  we all need our AC at this time of year. I have used Windows 10 for almost 2 years now and I still miss Windows 7. Some things I still cannot find.

JENNY  I did get out yesterday morning. I do like getting some walking in out in the fresh air. I manage most days to do that.

JANE did you get a new coffee pot yet? I was looking through a Harriet Carter catalog last night and they have a one cup pot that does not take pods but any coffee you like The price is $24.98. I have ordered things from there before and satisfied with what I got and delivery is free. Hope today is much better for you.

AMY  Rudolf should know by now that he only should show up with Santa.

LLOYD  about time you star t playing more than working.

PHYLLIS  like you I am picky about produce. My son where I used to live know how I am and know he will get fruit the way I want. I ask my CNA and she will bring me  something that is hard as a rock. They never ripen but get rotten.

JOY  some mornings it takes me a long time to get moving. Like today, I am really late posting. Would rather be sleeping.

Have a good day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I finished the black raspberry jam 10 jars and an eater).  And I washed up the kitchen floor.  It was getting sticky.  I found 6 more pieces of glass from the broken lid.  I also got a call from the hardward store.  My new lid has come in so I'll get cleaned up after lunch and go pick it up today.

I'm still feeling very tired today and I'm thinking of throwing in the towel for the rest of the day.  It's supposed to rain this afternoon and early evening so I won't have to drag the hose around to water the plants.

I'm glad everyone is feeling better today.  Maybe I'll join you all tomorrow. 

If you think of it, say a quick prayer for my granddaughter, Courtney.  She takes the test for getting into the College Masters program on Saturday morning.  She's smart enough to pass it but a bit nervous about taking it. 

Keep on keeping on.  I'll try to be back later.  Now I'm getting my lunch and doing the errands.

The trip to the city went well, we left here at 5:30 and had time for a coffee/tea and walk the dogs before the appointment. Dr was pleased with all the results and didn't change a thing..
On the  way home we stopped and bought 6 quarts of strawberries, gave one to our neighbour and will make a pie for Kyle maybe tomorrow.

Not a lot of energy here, so not much will be done tonight :)

Enjoy your evening everyone.

My brain is on overload reading over the new paperwork from insurance (roof) & trying to compare with what was put on in 2006 to make sure they put on the same quality roof. I've already noticed their mention of 10 to 30 year & what is on is 50 year with a 4 rating.... and online the brand calls it "lifetime". SO.... I forwarded the PDF on to son & daughter & so far the son wants to know if we didn't have thicker "felt" so I have to find that number. Cas' paperwork is full of notes & corrections because with that hail, they paid to replace wood on the fence, pool carpet, a building repair.... and I did NOT even look to see if any of that was damaged because "if I can't see it, it couldn't have been that bad". And I don't want to deal with more. Do have the RV appraiser coming Sat so will see what he has to say.  Goodness, this is where "two heads are better than one". The felt was 30# so need to correct that & will insist on 50 year since even if I sell in the next few years, that number would make a difference in price! I thought this would be a piece of cake since they have the record of what was needed in 2006!  If I had any hair with color it would be turning white today! Does anyone deal with straight out facts instead of trying to slip something past?  It is a job & I don't like it BUT.....

Amy, the strawberries sound good right now. I am hungry & see it is past my normal supper time... and the cats'.  They have slept all day, weren't even hungry when they came in this morning. Do need to walk them down to the river so guess I'd better get off this chair & MOVE IT!

Good Night everyone, we are going to hit the hay early to night. the Plan is to get up early in the morning and go Bronson and try to get tickets on the Bronson Bell for the Dinner cruse. wish us good luck. good night and sweet dreams.

Well, SHIRLEY'S going to walk down to the river and I'm just about to walk down the hall to the bedroom.  It's time for me to be off to Dreamland! 

AMY, glad you had a good trip to the city and good news when you got there.  I've been doing some odds and end all day.  A few errands (I picked up my new lid and it fits!), stopped at the store for a few items and swung by the ATM machine for a wallet refill.  I guess that's about it! 

Good night everyfried.  Sleep peacefully and wake refreshed in the morning. An may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone..
My it is muggy out now . We did have some nice rain yesterday along with cracks of thunder that made the pup bark  .
This morning tis off to the chiropractor for Kyle then home to clean berries.

Lloyd, I hope you can get the tickets for the dinner cruise. That sounds like a lot of fun!

Jane, good to have a lid that fits now no breaking this one.

Gloria, I don't care for muggy weather, everything you go to do make it feel twice as difficult to do. Love Fall and Winter despite the work that comes with it.

Phyliss ,happy  you feel better and hope today is even better. You gave me a giggle with the touchy feely as I am also that way with produce plus my fabric too!

Better get a move on here

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm a little later than usual because I'm doing what my husband used to call "dopping around".  That means "moving about but not getting much done".  I think I better get my brain organized and accomplish something today. 

Last night when I was getting ready for bed, I decided I better check the calendar and see what time I had to go to work.  SURPRISE!!!  I DON'T HAVE TO WORK TODAY!!!  For some reason, he didn't schedule me today so here I am with a whole extra day!

I kind of wish I had the green beans that I'm getting on Sunday.  I'd whip them into shape in no time.  Maybe I'll get out the weed whacker and go around the fence with it until it gets so muggy I can't move.  I might have to finish that off after the sun goes behind the trees in the early evening. 

However, if I sit here chatting, I won't get anything done.  So I bid you all a fond farewell.  Enjoy your day, whatever it brings!

Good morning everyone, I think Joan up in heaven sent down some of her Angel dust last night because I haf the best sleep in months. Feel great now but two late. CNA getting here at 11 this morning. Just having my coffee.

LLOYD  enjoy the trip to Branson.

AMY  strawberries here are long gone. Ahh strawberry pie, if my daughter was there she would be knocking at your door, her favorite.

JANE glad you have an extra day off. I wish that coffeepot was what I saw before I bought the Keurig.

Gotta go, hope I can get dressed before she knocks at the door.

JaneS - Just dropped into Soda Shoppe today, to tell you that I'm envious of your free Alfred Hitchcock series, at the local college!  I would be first in line, as I love all the Hitchcock movies.  My favorites are,  The Man Who Knew Too Much, with Doris Day and James Stewart  - Vertigo, and,  North By Northwest.  I hope you have a chance to see those three, plus all the others are good too.

MARILYNE,  I don't think they're showing NORTH BY NORTHWEST...also one of my favorites.  My other two are THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. and  REAR WINDOW and they're showing both of them.  I'll watch extra for you. 

I got the weed whacking done before the humidity got to me and just in time because the weed whacker decided to act up.  So I shut it in the shed and came in the house and cleaned out some cupboards.  Now I have room for my Instant pot.  Tomorrow I'm going to play with it. I was tempted to play today but other things were calling my name. 

I'm going to have to drag the hose around this evening because Mother Nature never delivered on the rain she promied yesterday.  I shouldn't have depended on her.  She lets me down more often than she keeps her word.

I think I'll try to finish my "goofing off".  I have some stuff to look up on line and I'll do that first.  Do whatever you please with your day.

Jane, happy to read your IP came!! Now you will be cooking up a storm.
Took Kyle to the chiropractors then stopped for tea/coffee. We also picked up dog food, time to put this pup on regular food from his puppy food. We are going to take him to the vet  to see what he weighs at 8 months. I say 75 lbs so we shall see.
Made the strawberry rhubarb pie which decided to bubble over but this time I put a catch pan underneath for easy clean up.

Not sure what will be for supper yet, don't feel like eating much yet. Just had an hours nap ...again.

Good morning everyone.

Another fry day here, great for drying laundry :)

Will work with the rest of the strawberries putting some in the freezer for winter. The pie was ok, but next time I won't put orange zest in it, found it a bit over powering...but   we will clean the pie up.

I see the pup is cleaning the glass on the door......bless him.....now I will follow up and remove his tongue prints.

Not sure how  the day will go, have laundry to do plus I have some things for my friend and we may take them to her.

Gloria, isn't it great when you can get a good nights sleep? Plus it would be nice to wake up with no aches and pains too!

Larry, you are missed..hope all is well there.

Joy is mia also.

Better get going

Good Morning Everyfrend! And a special "Good Morning" to you, AMY.  I see you're talking to yourself this morning.  Seems you closed us up last night and opened us up this morning. 

WHERE IS EVERYONE?

Last evening, I went with my friend to movie night at her church.  I always enjoy it more because of the people than the movie.  But last night the effects of the weed whacking went along.  I spent then evening wishing I had stayed home.  My left side in the middle of my body hurt so bad I couldn't think straight.  When I got home, I took two alleve, plastered it with pain killer and went to bed.

This morning I feel at least 98% better!  And I slept pretty well most of the night.

Today, my plan is to take trash to the dumpster and make a WM run for groceries, etc.  Then I'm going to play with my new toy when I get home.  I'll try to get used to it and then set something to cook either for supper or wait until tomorrow's dinner. I'm READY!!

I hope Everyfriend has a special day!  Make it your own in every way!

Callie has returned! I opened the garage doors to let the hot air out & she was sitting, looking in like nothing wrong!  I had just seen a little black kitten in the back yard as I started to go down to the river... it darted into the berm & I was pretty sure not my imagination. When I saw Callie I figured that baby must have followed her... no clue where she may have been for the last 3 weeks (one week while I was gone & 2 weeks today since we got back). All stayed out for the night & only Tom at the bedroom door this morning. He came on in for breakfast but no sign of others.... until I opened the front door & Callie walked in like the old days!  She had breakfast & I let her back out into the pool area. Tiger came in to eat & now all are back out, no sign of the black kitten.

Have a bathroom commode that ran all night, not the kind you can jiggle the handle to stop but the little tube that fills water back up won't shut off. My arm isn't long enough to reach back to turn the water off so had to listen to that all night. These were special made & do need to be replaced since fittings in the tank are different & couldn't find them when last needed. Will be a major job since carpet will also have to be replaced & new flooring installed. That carpet was put down at least 8 years ago, wanted to go with tile or hardwood floors in bathrooms then, but... and now it can't wait so will be having a roof & bathrooms torn up at the same time. Guess I need to adopt a plumber & have all 3 taken care of & not need to deal with it again! Not how I wanted to spend my summer.

The trees are very still this morning, sun is up & can feel it starting to heat up. I'd better get moving since the adjuster will be here to look over the RV & hopefully my son will come to either fix that commode or turn the water off to it. I would hate to have it running until Monday, I remember last time the water bill sky-rocketed.

Wishing all a wonderful week end, sure hearing a lot about the storms along the Gulf Coast & earthquakes on the west coast. Be kind of nice to just sleep the rest of this summer away!  :thumbup:

I have returned to the land of the living and it feels good to be back.  Yesterday was another "lost" day.  I hardly moved from the recliner.  We were getting very close to being out of some needed grocery items so I managed to think well enough to make a list and David did the shopping.  He did a good job of finding everything on the list so we have successfully avoided starving for now.  ;) I slept so well last night for the first time in days (or nights?) and feel so much better this morning.

It is to be another hot day so I won't be going far away from the A/C.  I'll just putter and catch up on some things that I have let slide for the last several days.  I need to set some cucumbers and yellow squash to being pickled.  I love cold, crisp refrigerator pickles on a hot summer day.

I'm missing Larry.  I hope we hear from him soon.

Take care, stay well, and stay cool, Everyone!

Good morning. It is a pretty sunny morning here, but supposed to get hot again.  Most of the weekend is supposed to be nice.

AMy, I thought I wrote something the other day about being MIA.   I had missed some of the messages but just when back and read all the ones I missed.

I agree with all the comments that have been mentioned about how we all feel about the journey that Larry is on.  I am another one who really admires him for taking charge of his life now and doing just what he wants to do.  I, too, feel bad when I think of all he is going through, that my little problems aren't that bad.

I am not feeling all that great this morning, as I am having some issues.  I had to go to one of the Urgent Care places, as I couldn't get in to see the doctor.  I do have a UTI and am on medicine that isn't making me feel so good. So, will spend a lazy day.

We were supposed to have steamed crabs today at my son's, But I was able to cancel the order until another time.  I didn't think that I would be able to go. Disappointed, but that is ok. There will be another time.

I didn't sleep well, so I can feel a nap coming along.  Have a great day.
