  • 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.

Good morning everyone. Finally talked with my daughter on Skype yesterday, no thunderstorms.

CAROL  I can take a sleeping pill and be awake all night and be groggy all the next day. I have had a sleepless night at times but never as bad or long as it has been this week. Most times I get 7 or 8 hours at night. No sleeping during the day either. Glad Don is doing good with the bandage on your neck. Hope you have a speedy recovery from the surgery.

JOY  I haven't heard anyone here have anything nice to say about our manager. I was talking with one of the men painting the building last week and he asked me how I liked her. I just looked at him and said no comment. He told me he went through school with her. Her father kept her in line but after he died she started showing her true color and made  an enemy of everyone. I have been enjoying my tomato and lettuce sandwiches since our local tomatoes ripened. One son brought me some cherry tomatoes from his garden and every time I go into the kitchen I pick a few of them to enjoy.

AMY yesterday I had trouble signing in. Ready to scream so emailed Bubble and she helped me. Don't know why it did not like my password all of a sudden. Like you I will be so happy when the fall weather gets here. Never did like summer  heat and humidity.

Gosh no Jane or Jenny last night, hope both are OK. Wonder if Lloyd got off on his trip and is having no problem towing the van.

Have a good day.

Good morning everyone..

We had thunderstorms during the night, poor Babe was shaking like a leaf.
Not sure what is on the agenda today, I know I have things that need done. Isn't there always something to do around the house. No picking beans till the plants dry off though.

Gloria, Jane said she was spending time with a friend. I did notice on the way home yesterday that some of the trees are starting to get a slight tinge on them .

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Yesterday was a great day!  My friend and I got caught up on everything we had let slip and 2 other friends joined us for supper.  It was special.

This will be short because I have to be at work at 9.  AMY, I didn't see a report on the Pina Colada Zucchini Bread.  Did I miss it?  I gave some to my friend yesterday and I'm waiting for a report.  The gal across the street LOVED it!

I have to go get ready for work now.

I wish you all a lovely day!

Jane, the loaf was  very moist and even though I doubled the flavourings all but the vanilla I thought it needed more. Kyle loved the moist cake though. I got the recipe from TOH. May try another one..or do my chocolate zucchini cake for something different.

No one has posted since AMY did this morning!  I came home from work beat right down to my sox and all I wanted to do was take a nap.  Thank goodness the couch was loaded with zzzzs so I grabbed a few and now the dogs are telling me it's time for their supper and I better get with the program or they'll throw me out on my ear and get someone who will feed them on time.

I hope you are all just busy with things you enjoy and that you'll be in to report this evening.  I'm off to feed the fur kids!

I headed to bed, T-storm going through with street flooding, trees down & power out... but not at my house.  :thumbup: Cats were all out & they never come in until storms are over... and come in dry, where ever they hide.  Tiger just showed up, they have not had their "midnight snack" (the canned Friskies). Think the worst of the storm is over, I am SO sleepy. Got 12 quart size bags of meat ground up & one tub mixed up of the spread. Yum, I'll put some in the hidey hold so you can taste. I happened to have Kraft mayo instead of Miracle Whip today, but put in the celery, onions, hard boiled eggs, pickle relish & that red onion was especially tasty so I had a couple slices of bread with the spread & seriously considering going back for more while Tiger has her snack!

Hope everyone is tucked in for the night, sweet dreams. And where ever you are, Nancy & Lloyd, hope everything is going well. I'll turn out the lights now.  Love y'all.........Shirley

Wednesday night and I am just getting in to post.  We have been quite busy with the kiddos and Michele. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES, 💐 CAROL 💐
I do hope you enjoyed a nice day.  Best wishes for a happy and healthy year to come💞. I hope you are feeling better and your neck area is not too uncomfortable for you🥰

We had quite the storm tonight.....lots of thunder, lightening and HAIL😩🤬🤬. It did a pretty good amount of damage to my plants😩

Michele is trying to get the next gamma knife procedure scheduled for next week, but the oncologist that does this is on vacation this week so it may not happen.  She is just so wanting to get this brain cancer taken care of ASAP.  AS ALWAYS, I thank you all so very much for your continued support and prayers🦋

I have not commented about my Dad recently, but he seems to be doing well and back doing about everything he was doing before the last medical scare.  I talk to him every day. 

My brother is getting stronger each day and sounds good.  Nice to see some things coming back to normal!

LLOYD, anxious to read that you and Nancy are "on the road again"!

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND!

Jenny



JaneS

Thank you, Bubble for posting for me and for directing my friends in here where to look.  She's just growing up way too fast!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I have a meeting here at 10 this morning and things to get ready for it so I'll make this short and I'll try to get back later.  This morning the doggies didn't even wait for the "crack of dawn" to get up.  They're still on DST and haven't adjusted to the fact that it gets light later and later in the morning.  Oh well!  There will be time for a nap later this afternoon after the errands.

JENNY, I'm so happy that "some" of your news is good news and I pray that Michele has some part in the "good" stuff, too.  They are all so lucky to have you!

I wish you all a lovely day!

Good morning everyone...

Short night. I never sleep well when I know I have an appointment early in the am.  Then later today take Kyle to the Dr about an hours drive from here.

Shirley, I remember when my Mom would make that spread and it is so delicious! Amazing how the cats can find a dry place when it is raining.

Jenny, I do hope Michele can have the procedure soon . Happy to read your Dad and brother are doing well.

Jane, oh my  how time flies. Emma is such a beauty..I am sitting here comparing your photo with hers and now I know what you looked like at that age!

Carol, Happy birthday to you. May you be blessed with many more!

Better get a move on here.

Shirley

Up too early so had breakfast & going back to bed. Not quite 3 hours sleep but will make up for it, I hope!  Heaven help if a "robo call" wakes me up, I'll bite the end off the phone!

Jane, she is so cute, love that expression, "I'll handle it"...  :thumbup: She doesn't look like she is afraid of that first day away.

Jenn, I have a "wave of sadness" with all your family is facing right now, but know the joy of your loving family keeps you going. Hugs & prayers.

Amy, do your fur babies keep you awake during storms? I know I shouldn't let them wake me up but even if they are outside, I can "feel" when they are looking in the sliding door to see if I'm going to wake up & let them in. I think I get better sleep during the winter months, they are more willing to stay inside all night. Like you, I sleep with one eye open when I know I have to get up early. Busy day ahead but doesn't start too early so heading back to bed.

Joy

Can't say Good Morning any longer.  I was in here very early, and then like Shirley,  I took a nap. 

Jane, I can't believe that Emma has gotten so big.  Seems like she is still a little baby.  She is so cute. Is that a day care place where she is going to? 

I probably won't get in here tomorrow until late in the day.  I have to go out very early to have some tests done.  My son will drop me off on his way to work and I will call my DIL to come get me when I am finished. 

Today is supposed to be the last day of our very hot temperatures.  From tomorrow on for several days, it will only be in the upper 70's and low 80's,  A big relief, although I have not  had to be out in the heat.  But, I still like the hot weather. I am, for one,  very sad to even think about the cold days coming soon. Just hate being cold, but nothing I can do about it. WIsh I could spend my winters in a nice warm area.  Years ago, my husband and I were campers, and we spent the winters in Florida.  Really miss those days.

I hope you all have a great afternoon.

Joy

Amy

Think my  running for the day is over. We have to go into town tomorrow to take a script in and that is it.....so far.

Shirley, Babe is more sensitive to the storms than the pup. Babe vibrates  in  a storm and all one can do is hug her and tell her she is going to be ok. Going to be an early night for bed tonight.

Joy, hope all your tests turn out the way you want them. I would love a nap now but then I won't sleep tonight.  We saw trees that the  leaves  had already started to turn colour. While I was picking the beans earlier a flock of geese circled about...longer and longer flights getting ready for the long trip. A murder of crows were gathered by the roadside when we were on our way home. They too are gathering.

My physical therapy was early so I decided (not) to wake at 4:15 AM.  Feeling good after the therapy - only one more appointment and that will be over. 

Jenny:  It looks like the daily storm will pass us - we need a break.  You have a lot going on in family issues - I hope Michele gets her treatment soon. 


JaneS

I'm off to Dreamland!  I wish you all a peaceful sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

P.S.  I'll leave the lights for Shirley or Jenny to put out.  I'd hate to have them stumbling around in the dark!

Good morning everyone. Don't know what I did yesterday morning. I was typing on the Notepad and must have hit something and the page I was reading shrunk to about 3 inches wide. I am not a touch typist, I have to look at the keys or have a mess of nonsense. Every other sight was normal but not S&F. I even emailed Bubble to ask if something was wrong with the site, no every thing normal.  I was ready to send my grandson guru an SOS. When my CNA was here I told her about it and showed it to her. She said that happened to her once and it was the zoom size that messed up. So went to that and sure enough it was down to 25 instead of the 125 I use all the time. Fixed that and by then I was so disgusted with this lemon I just quit for the day. I must have hit some keys that were a shortcut for size, who knows!
We had a power outage in the afternoon and got it back in time to talk with my daughter on Skype. It was out during the night sometime because I had to set the time on the microwave again this morning, that is getting to be a daily happening lately. It is raining now but not a thunderstorm.

JENNY  glad your Dad is doing good and your brother, too. Like Michele if I had to have any procedure done I want it done NOW, not have to wait.

BUBBLE  thanks for the link.

JANE  wow hard to believe your little Emma is old enough to go to pre school already. They grow too fast these days.

JOY  we are opposites, I like the cold months, I feel I can always add another layer to keep warm. We are in for a week end of temperatures in the 70's and I will enjoy that so much especially with lower humidity.

AMY  it will not be long before we start seeing a tinge of color on the maple trees in the front. They are always the first to start showing color. With the days getting shorter faster it seems nights will be long.

CAROL  Happy Belated Birthday.

SHIRLEY  are all those little ones your grands or great grands? Sure a bunch of them All seem about the same age, busy family. I have only seen one double rainbow, at my in laws place in Maine after a thunderstorm. Beautiful and bright.

Hope we hear from Lloyd soon.

Have a good day.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This will be short because I have to get ready for work pretty soon. 

GLORIA, we're going to have the same types of temps that you're expecting this week.  I'm really looking forward to it.  Like you, I prefer the colder weather.  I've always said, "If it's hot, there's only so much you can take off but if it's cold, you can always add something more".

I better get a move on!  The doggies will want a walk before I go to work.  We try to do that before and after the heat of the day!

I wish you all a lovely day!

Good morning everyone, just had the best night in a couple of weeks, even had to shut the fan off in the window, got too chilly. Now doesn't that  sound good for a change? Sun is shining and the sky a bright beautiful blue.

JANE  like you I say the same about clothes, even in birthday suits we could not get cool, give me winter over summer any time.

AMY  I don't like asking my grandson for help when I mess up the PC, know he works on them all day solving problems but he will help me,when he gets the time.

Where is everyone? No posts since Amy yesterday at 11:51 am. Feel like I am talking to myself.

Come out come out where ever you are!

Good morning.

Yes, Gloria, what a change in our temperatures this morning.  Does feel good  to turn off the A/C for a few days.  Our 80 degrees are supposed to return by the end of the week.  I know you like  the colder weather, but I am not quite ready for summer to end.  I just hate to think of the cold weather that is on the way.   I don't like feeling cold.

Yes, it has been pretty slow lately.  Mary Ann, over on Norm;s page, has mentioned several times about how slow several of the message boards have gotten.  But, when you think about it, we have lost several of our favorite posters over the past few years.  And, I guess maybe these kind of sites are getting fewer and fewer. 

Facebook has taken over so much of the whole population  these days. I do follow FB, but usually just to keep up with my grandchildren.  And, there are lots of times, they take their good old time getting back to me.  Communication among  a lot of people now seems to be a thing of the past.  So sad when a lot of people have their heads buried in their phones or tablets. 

When I was at my appointments yesterday, every aged person seemed to be looking at their phones or tablets.  I was included in that group also. So, it isn't all just the younger ones. I knew I was going to have a long wait, so that was one of the times that I did remember to take my Kindle with me. 

All my appointments went well yesterday, and now just have to wait for the results,  which is hard to do.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Hello, Everyfriend!  This morning started off with a jolt!  I slept very well and when Annie decided it was time to get up she just jumped off the bed.  I heard it and that's what got me up.

I took them out, gave theim their pill and we waited for the boinger and breakfast.  Then I had some things to do that got left yesterday.  I don't know where today has gone.  I made a trip to Cathy's this morning and then around by WM on the way home.  I've decided that it's time for good old fashioned Meat Loaf and Scalloped potatoes for supper today and I needed to pick up some hamburger.  While I was at the store, I grabbed some bread and milk, too.

I came home, and made lunch (felt like a grilled cheese sandwich so that's what I had), took the doggies for a walk and checked some things on the computer.  Sounds boring but that's life!  At least I'm still here to enjoy life!

Cathy brought her box of papers to be shredded in "our" new shredder and I got half of them done last night while I watched TV.  I'll probably do the rest this evening while I watch TV.  I wonder how long she's been saving them up.  I told her to bring them by once a month from now on and to get rid of the HUGE tub she's been putting them in.

I wish you all a lovely day!

Good (or Super) Sunday to every Friend!!!  It rained all night, thunder & lightning so cats were all inside. Callie prefers HER garage, eats her meals in the kitchen with Tom & Tiger & runs to the garage door when the other two go to the pool door. I don't know where she hides out but comes out when SHE decides to & I never see what little hidey hole she comes from.

The river will be high because we had lots of rain to the north & west of us, be a while before I can get out to feed those fish. Most are catfish with heads larger than if you put your hands together with thumbs & forefingers, not exaggerating one bit. They surface when I talk to them & flop all over each other to reach the bread. I limit them to half a sandwich loaf per day, will check the "day old bread store" to see if their policy has changed. At one time it was really reasonable to buy for the ducks & geese & then they went to only selling the whole racks full. I couldn't use that up before it started turning green so gave up. I could buy the store brands for about the same as the day old & it stayed fresh longer in the garage. Such is my life... I spend my "entertainment" money for feeding critters.

I hear more thunder, need to check radar & get dressed. Don't usually have any street flooding on my route to church but I will leave a few minutes early. Just a tad cooler & "how sweet it is......."  (Wasn't that a Jackie Gleason quote?)

Gloria

Good morning everyone. Oh boy am I emjoy ing the cool nights with no AC or fan running. Sleep better and the days are spent more outside. Quite a few sitting out yesterday, more like it used to be here. 63° now, just heard we might have scattered showers late this afternoon. Just enough to spoil a perfect weekend.

BUBBLE  love your emoji and thanks for showing up here.

JOY  I do know summer is a time for vacations and outings of one kind or another but don't think it was ever this slow in here. My grandson set me up with FB but if I check in there every few months it is a lot for me. Like Jane said, can always add a sweater of sweatshirt in winter. Could be that we are more used to cold weather here than you are further south. My older son paid me a surprise visit yesterday afternoon and brought a bag a goodies from his garden. Different kinds of tomatoes, even a couple of the old Heritage ones, peppers and cucumbers One big bell pepper that when I saw it all I thought of was stuffed pepper. Both sons brought me tomatoes from their gardens so I will have enough to enjoy all week. Yummy, do they know me and how I love native tomatoes?

MARY ANN  new members are hard to get in here. I have tried to tell others about this site and they say it sounds like fun but not interested in joining us. A few just want to play games on their PC. Sure I like some games on mine but only at night before I close for the night, relaxes me.

JANE  been a long time since I made scalloped potatoes. When I lived in the apartment at my son's house I would make it and bake it it 2 casseroles and sent the bigger one downstairs for them. One son likes to make it with the package mix and to me that is like the paste we used in grammar school, yuck. I like grilled cheese with sliced tomato between slices of cheese.

SHIRLEY  I have a chuckle every time I picture you feeding the fish. Now that  I would love to see.  I get a picture in my mind of them, like the one you  took-Bottoms Up of the ducks. I did save that one and at times put it up as wallpaper and think of you every time I see it.

Have a good day.

Well, I barely made it to church in time this morning.  I considered the possibility of not going but all the time I was thinking of staying home, I was getting ready to go.  Seems I can't back out unless the weather is really yucky or my body is really yucky!  I guess God knows best!

I stopped around by the store on the way home and picked up stuff to get started on my LARGE pot of spaghetti sauce for canning.  I'm going to make the meatballs this week.  I can do that and stick them in the freezer until I need to dump them in the sauce and that saves me a step when I get further along.

GLORIA, I envy you all those fresh tomatoes!  My one plant is growing lots of tomatoes and yesterday, I noticed that two of them are "blushing".  I sent a picture to my daughter who did all the planting and told her one of them is hers because she deserves the first one.  She told me she'd split it with me and I told her to look closer.  There are two coming on.  She's going to be up here next weekend so they are just in time.

SHIRLEY, if you are in WM, check out the bread aisle.  We now have full loaves of whole wheat and white bread for 67 cents a loaf.  Might be cheaper than what you are buying for the fish.  Even I can make it through a loaf before it turns green although I did have to throw out two hot dog buns last week.  I think I need a "see-through" bread box.  I forgot they were in there.

The doggies are beginning to stir and I suppose that means lunch will be early since breakfast was also early today. 

I wish you all a lovely day!
