    October 16, 2019, 10:04:54 pm
  • 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.
    October 16, 2019, 10:04:30 pm

    Last week, Vicky, a distraught wife went to the local police station in Wigan, Lancashire, along with her next-door neighbour, Pauline, to report that her husband was missing.

The policeman asked for a description of the missing man. Vicky described him clearly and in detail, 'He is 35 years old, 6ft 4inches, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is softly-spoken and is fabulous with the children.

Pauline interrupts her protesting, 'Why Vicky, your husband is 5 ft 8 inches, corpulent, bald, has a big mouth, and is horrid to your children. Vicky replied, with a sigh, 'Yes, but who wants HIM back?'

How lucky am I to be able to be the first poster in our nice new Soda Shoppe?  Thank you, BUBBLE🥰

JANE, as always, I thank you for your special said prayers for my Dad, Michele and me.  You know I appreciate you doing this so much.  My poor Dad sounded very confused about the whole ordeal of him being kept in the hospital over night.  He did not think they ran any tests this morning at all, but may have take; X-rays, he said.  Bless his heart💞💞. He was given a prescription for his heart and is to stop taking Zocore, the cholesterol drug that he has been on for years.  He is to see a cardiologist.  Michele's mother has been here visiting her this weekend, and leaves tomorrow.  Michele will have the CT scan this week and we are praying it show the tumor on her lung has shrunk, or better yet DISAPPEARED!

I hope EVERYFRIEND is resting well tonight....pleasant dreams to all.

Good morning everyone

A night of NO coughing......yippie!!!  Another lovely day here , one I think is going to be a fry day a/c will soon go on.
Taking Pa aka Kyle to  get his feet done, meeting with friends then home to maybe work in the garden, will see how I feel.
Phylis, thank you for the lemon and honey I mixed it with a bit of water and down it went.

Lloyd, I am sure bourbon would help but  the lemon and honey did the trick.

Jenny, oh my your poor Dad sure has his troubles. I do hope the Drs. get it all straightened out for him.. Yes NO tumors to be found in Michele please God!!Prayers and miracles coming your way.

Larry, great to see you here. I know meds can cause a lot of problems while making one better. My BIL saw a man plowing with horses out his hospital window that was in the city.Just take it one day at a time and enjoy each day to the fullest. Prayers going your way.

Jane, happy to read you are happy with your IP. Talked with David last night and it seems Julie is also in love with the IP. She did eggs in it then potatoes for salad and said wow no more boiling water and dumping pots of hot water.

Better get a move on here..

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Thank you BUBBLE for the nice clean, new Soda Shoppe today!  And thank you for the pics and the jokes to start the day.

AMY, I'm so glad to hear the honey and lemon worked.  I'm also sorry I neglected to tell you about it myself.  My grandmother used to give it to us when we were kids and I felt pampered!  I also stopped coughing and I forgot.  I still use it on myself and like to warm it up in the microwave just a tad.

Go one bag of beans snapped and ready to go.  I'll do another one tonight and if the energy hold out...Ham and beans in the IP for supper tonight..and tomorrow night...and the next night. 

I'll be off to greet my public at Wally World today!  Wish me smiles.  I think today is the day they refilled the Food Stamps cards so we'll be busy.  Lots of kids through the line with parents this time of year...no school!

I hope all your news today is good news.  Make today your best!

Just checking in this morning to see how everyone is doing.  It is going to be an even hotter day today so there won't be much going on around here except for the usual Monday morning chores.

Glad you are not coughing as much now, Amy.  I hope it is gone forever.

Jane, if anyone can make good use of the IP I knew it would be you.  So glad you are liking it.

I hope it will be a good day for everyone.....ALL of the Everyfriends here and all of their loved ones.  Take care.

Good morning everyone, down to 64°this  morning and feels great.  Humidity is down too. Better get out and enjoy  today because weather guessers are saying into the 90's by Wednesday. Yuck, will be staying in.

LARRY  so good seeing you here this morning. For someone with a brain as smart as you have it must be horrible not to make yourself understood by your loved ones. My heart breaks reading your post. Hugs and prayers for you.

JOY  the way I always have water near me I don't think I will get dehydrated. My CNA keeps telling me to drink water and I hold up the tumbler to show her how it is going down.

SHIRLEY  LOL with how you looked after the dripping water. Think I would have turned on a radio or TV to block the drip.

JENNY  I am glad my parents did not suffer long at the end. They both had bad hearts for years but when their time came it was fast.

JANE  looks like you liked the first time with the IP. I don't do much coo‌king anymore but if I was able to I might get one.

BUBBLE  thanks for the new page to write in. Love your graphics. Oh boy, Vickie was really dreaming wasn't she? Thanks for your goodies today.

AMY  wonderful, a good sleep with no coughing. I remember trying to sleep sitting up on the couch because every time I laid down I would start coughing.

JANE  hope you have an easy day a t Wm.

PHYLLIS  good morning to you.

Have a good day.

I'm waiting for a return call from the RV place that advertises they replace roofs... and have had 2 robo calls from the same "Nancy, working closely with Medicare to provide you".... I've been getting at least several every day & one day was 5... not always the same phone number but exact same message & voice (recording). There has to be a way for the gov to track these people, it is harrassment & my BP goes over the top each time. I tried using the screecher I carry for purse snatchers, (not hearing about them lately) & saying a really bad word as I slam the phone down... only makes it worse. I tried using the NoMoRoBo calls provided by Cox but that turned out to be a disaster... it allowed robo calls to come through  but none of my family or friends could call me & it even connected my cell phone so I was totally helpless. Had Cox remove all that stuff & back to being harrassed. I wouldn't bother answering but some of the roof or RV repair or claims adjusters use their cell phones & that doesn't leave a name. What a crazy world!

Thank you Bubble for the funnies & new page. I'm trying to keep busy without being on the phone, house roof company & RV people are supposed to be calling this morning. I have a baking chicken in the oven, bad timing with temps already sizzling. Guess it is humidity & NO wind that makes it feel so hot. I planned to vac the pool so ran the pump all night, but it looks so nice there is no need to vac... if I had the energy to don a swim suit I'd go jump in, but sure as I did the phone would ring & I'd splash water in to the house to gather my papers. Enough whining........ just checking in....time to shut up!

Friends, I am so tired this afternoon that I am going to refer you to either the Christian Photographers postings for Norm's Bait and Tackle for my posting today.  I will try to come back and review the unread posts tomorrow.

A good Monday to EVERYFRIEND.

Another week up and running.  I have a lot I hope to accomplish...... We leave a week from tomorrow for a visit to our Boston Family. We are taking the oldest grandson and the granddaughter with us
and their Dad, Dr. Dave will fly in the end of the week and bring them back home on Sunday.  Dave has never seen older brother's home in Boston and it will give him a short break away also.  The family have not had much of a fun summer with their mom not able to travel.

The youngest Boston Grandson is flying to Green Lake Wisconsin tomorrow to spend a few days with his other grandparents, then he will fly with them to Denver on Sunday as his grandpa has a appointment at National Jewish Hospital. He will spend a couple of days with us then he too, will fly with us to Boston! C R A Z Y.....  We fly out at 6 AM.....poor kiddos!  When I made the reservation, a few months back, I picked that flight as it was the most reasonable one at that time!  It will get us to Boston at a good time too. 

I talked to my Dad this morning and he sounded good.  They gave him a prescription for a medicine for Angina, so I guess that was the diagnosis of his ER and hospital visit.  He is to see a cardiologist ASAP. He says he is not going and he is never going back to the ER again either!  Bless his heart😢

I hope you all are having a good Monday.  A weather warning has been issued here and it is getting really dark out.....please NO HAIL😱😱

I was sent this clip this morning and I thought it would be nice to share.

Good morning everyone, yesterday was into the low 80's and the sun was burning hot but in the shade with the light breeze and LOW humidity it felt so nice. More days like hat and I might not dislike summer. Over the coming week end we are in for a heat wave according to the weather guessers. Not nice.

CALLIE  most of what I post is making a comment on what others post. I lead a dull life with nothing much happening.

SHIRLEY  I have had calls for different thing and all with the same voice and different numbers. They think I am stupid and will fall for one of the things they are trying me to give information to them? Don't you ever shut up. I love your posts.

LARRY  I hope you got rest yesterday and feel better today.

JENNY  hope we aren't having a heatwave while you are in Boston. Glad your Dad sounded good. Great link, thanks.

WOW I beat Amy and Jane this morning, guess waking early is what
happens when I go to bed early.
Have a good day.

Good morning everyone..

Yes, I slept in..but I did have a night of no coughing again!

Not sure what is on for today, I know things need to be done in the house, weeding has been put of because we had a nice rain overnight.

Gloria,we too are have heat and storms...not liking that one bit.

Jenny thank you for the link, love the photography.

Better move it here.

Gloria, this few minutes while my head is clear..... just want to let you know I talked to a Cox person yesterday afternoon after that "Nancy, working closely with Medicare to give you the back, knee braces...etc".. called 6 times, I was so angry I was nearly in tears but at least the last few times I recognized the number & let it ring.... dumb person used the same number all 6 times. Cox said I can block up to 30 calls (& then unblock/delete so I can add more). Explained how & I did block that number & Nancy did not call again!  I'll be ready for her this morning! :knuppel2:  Can't do a thing about the RV until that person gets back from vacation a week from yesterday & the roof guy was here trying to contact the insurance people to let them know they were about $10,000 short on their estimate, that we really do have a good roof & want it replaced exactly! I am so relieved he is still in business & will handle this for me. All stuff will have to be ordered for RV & house so "it ain't over till it's over."  I do have to pay 1% of the total on house but no deductible on RV (thank goodness).

For a few minutes it is cooler outside than the AC inside so have the slider open by the laptop. Cats all fed, those picky eaters sure know when the salmon & tuna is fresh! I ended up putting that last serving of salmon in the bowl & don't know who ate it, probably Callie. Tiger is the worst but Tom watches to see what she does & unless he is really hungry, will walk away if she does (if he hasn't already cleaned out his bowl). The trees & water in the pool perfectly still so will get sticky hot soon. I was surprised last night when I went down to the river that it was actually comfortable in the shade, just enough breeze coming off the water & mosquitoes weren't buzzing.

Better go fix my breakfast before it gets busy here. I need to sort papers on this table & file away what I can. Little by little I have tried to convert my business papers back to that roll top desk that Cas used, but my head works better when my clutter is in this end of the house where it's been for more than 30 years. I don't handle changes too well.  :-[  I even bought a big package of those hanging file folders for the roll top drawers but have not had time (probably don't use my time efficiently)... to go through each file & toss what isn't current. My brain doesn't think "organized"... too often I will go to take something to the other end of the house & get side tracked & end up starting a whole new job. Well, time to quit thinking & start moving.

Jenn, hope your father finds peace in his health issues. Cas had the nitro tabs in his pocket at all times & would have to get fresh ones often, they had an expiration date. He did learn to not panic after a while, but know he used them more often than he let on. Cas was like your father, wanted no part of staying in a hospital (or care home) even though he would have felt safer. We live close enough to the hospital he used that last 6-8 years that he was okay as long as I could bring him a treat several times a day & visit. We don't know what it will be like for each of us, dying is not the worst part, sometimes living is much harder. Hugs & prayers for all of you, I'm sure your strength & attitude is a blessing to all.

Callie, my #1 son is "down in your neck of the woods" this week. He seems to enjoy being able to help them out & has the years & background that soothes the stress of the guys he works with. Naturally I worry he tries to do too much, but that's what mothers do, isn't it?

Time is flying, been up more than an hour & still haven't had my breakfast & dressed. Good intentions don't count, do they?
Have a Terrific Tuesday, everyone... hope all are "free of the ickies" for now!  Love ya, Shirley.

Good news, Amy, cough over with & weeds to pull... Not a fair trade, I sure hate pulling weeds. My berm looks like a jungle again so will have to take care of that one of these days. Glad the cough is over but got to make sure it isn't "rattling around in the chest 'cause that can turn into pneumonia". I can hear the kids doctor warning me.....

Janie, you & Amy are the busiest people I know & make me feel like a snail. I did get that chicken baked & hamburger turned into taco meat yesterday but not sure WHY I did it. Freezer & frig are full & nobody around to eat but me.

Carol

Hooray, I can type again. This foolish HP computer wouldn't recognize me - imagine that!  Ungrateful useless junk computer! 

Another afternoon planned just to drive to the VA hospital - it is a tough drive with all the angry speedsters on the road. Speed LIMIT?  What is that? 

Jenny:  Busy time for you and I know you are worried about your dad and really the entire family. Sending a cyber hug to you.  By the way, did you hear about the crowd cheering Hancock - someone set fire to our flag and hoisted an entirely different flag from south of the border.  You would think someone would have saved our flag -

Shirley:  Good to read you are feeling better. 

We met our granddaughter for lunch in Golden yesterday.  Such a treat - she is always happy and so attentive to us.  Then, driving back the hard rain was something else.  On one stretch of the newest part of the freeway, we were up to the mid part of tires in water.  Another failure of the system of not recognizing that there are huge rainfalls coming from the mountains. Floods on a freeway - should not have been forgotten in the design. 

I sound crabby today.  Better tend to my own business.

Hello Everyfriend! Got back from the movie (Alfred Hitchcock's MARNIE)  It was just as good as ever but the best part was the company of my daughter, Cathy for dinner and the movie. 

Nothing else of any interest to report so I'm going to get ready for bed.  Tomorrow is a work day and after work, doggies to the vet.

I wish you all a peaceful night's rest and a happy tomorrow.

Good morning everyone, another morning I was awake at 4:30. Already had 1 cup of coffee, just played a few games of Mah Jong  on the PC. Now here I am, oh happy day? Think I will go out for some fresh air early before it starts getting hot. Starting at 72° and I like that for a high temperature.
They are going to finish painting this building in the front. Today they will be power washing the front of the building, they did that  to the roof last week. We got a notice from the office to keep our windows closed while they were doing that. Oh we are so dumb we would leave windows open while they spray water against them. At least the AC's can stay installed. The witch thinks she is the only smart one around.

SHIRLEY  wow you can block some calls? I think I should call Cox and find out how. I am now getting some on my cell phone. Only my family and doctor know that number so if I do not know the number I just let it ring. It is not set up for messages so they cannot leave a message for me to delete. You make me glad I have only 3 rooms and not much storage space so I have to keep thing where they belong. I bet the witch would yell at me if she came in and I had a mess in here.

CAROL  thanks for a laugh this morning with that "foolish HP" I call my HP a lemon. Sent it back to the factory 3 weeks after I bought it and asked for my money back. They sent it back and said the put something in it and it was perfect, 3 weeks later sent it back again, that time I asked for a refund or a new machine.  Back it came and they said they put a new motherboard in it. Well My grandson has worked on it so many times I lost count. The last time I told him to take it home with time to work on. He brought it back 3 weeks later and not much problems since. His job is with computers and he does not like working on them on his time but he will for family. He is a good kid-35 years old and a Dad to an almost 4 year old.

JANE  your fur babies get more TLC from you than some parents treat their little ones.

AMY  glad the coughing stopped, forget the weeds when the sun is on the garden.

LLOYD  just think of what money you  save being smart and changing your own faucets.

Think I will get my breakfast going and get dressed for the day and outside before the sun is too hot.
Have a good day.

Finally we got some nice rain yesterday.  There has been a lot of rain in the area but it just seemed to go around my neighborhood and the lawns were browning out pretty badly.  David doesn't mind that because it means he doesn't have to be out mowing in this heat.

I'm not doing any more than I have to because like the rest of you, it is too hot.  All this week the temp. will be in the high 90's with the dew point in the mid-100's.  Pretty uncomfortable but the A/C keeps plugging along....thank goodness.

Please take care, All.
