  • 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
  • so_P_bubble: Fingers crossed! I hope the final cost for repair will be lower than previously estimated!

  • so_P_bubble: Michael, that does not sound good, especially for your own security. Maybe you could sell as spare parts and find another bargain? A few months ago mine was stolen during the night and the security cams showed it fleeing toward the Palestinian territories - gone forever. I had just paid the yearly l

BEYOND THE CROSSROADS


When I look into the mirror,
I do wonder how it can be,
that an old man looks back at me.
Where on earth has this old man been
for all of those many lost years -
too few laughs and too many tears.

From manhood, up to the crossroads,
those prime-of-life youth years just flew;
those happy years were all too few.
From youth to old age was a blur.
Life's tribulations took their toll.
Now, I'm simply wrinkled and old.

As I look into the mirror,
far beyond the facial lines,
I seek most a heart that is kind;
one with consistent compassion;
a heart forever forgiving -
to share lessons with the living.

I assessed my very being,
far deep within my ageless soul.
Was I wiser as I grew old?
Was my spirit all it could be?
Were my pure thoughts too far away,
when I humbly knelt to pray?

The human jungle was my cross.
Unable to meet its demands,
I mustered courage - made my stands.
Winning battles, but loosing wars,
the struggles had a human price!
I was at my end more than twice.

Only after utter defeat
did life become pure and golden -
returning years that were stolen.
I was led to the right crossroad
and received my award at last.
My trials were in the distant past!

Retirement is traumatizing
to many I am well aware,
but I find a safe haven there.
My spirit and youth are renewed.
Oh glory be, oh glory be,
I found my niche, and I am free!

Thank you, Bubble, for the beautiful graphics & quotes! Perfect, one & all............Shirley (Computer working fine, maybe I should get on these wee hours instead of daytime!

Good Morning everyone. @5:15 AM here it is 72º and mostly clear shooting for at least 89º today. I think I will be a couch Jockey mostly to day. No need to stress my weak heart. Have a great day today and a better day tomorrow.

What a bounty of "stuff" you've given us, Bubble!  I loved it all but the old guy in the mirror brought back  memory to me.  Many times, I heard my mother say, "Every time I look in the mirror, there's this old hag looking back at me!  I wonder where she came from?"  I understand that now.  My mirror has the same problem!

GOOD MORNING, EVERYFRIEND!  I'm just waiting for the boinger for feeding the doggies and I had to look for the natural doggie de-itchizer.  Annie's got 'em again and that stuff worked so well te last time that I'm going to try it again.

I'm off to mix it up! 

I wish you all a lovely day!

Better get a move on.

Can't say Good Morning, anymore.  I have been on this computer for several hours and I just don't know where the time goes.  I guess I need to start using my timer again/  The morning has just disappeared.

First, Jenny, your grand daughter is beautiful !  Sure looks a lot older than 9 years old.  I agree that it will be hard to keep the boys from knocking on the door.  But, hopefully, that is a good ways off. 

Gloria, Callie and Amy,  My appointment yesterday went very well.  Everything looked good, but will have to wait about a week for the results of the urinalysis to come back.  But, I guess the low-maintenance drug I am taking is doing it's work.  The urologist also said it will be ok to just continue seeing the PA that I saw where I couldn't get an appointment with him. She is in another office that is a lot closer to where I live.  He said she was very good and would keep him updated when I see her. I have an appointment with her on Oct.31.  So far, the medicine is working.

And.  yes, it was so nice to see so many family members at the party on Sat.  It is always a fun day,  but with so many people, you just don't get a lot of time to visit with each other. 

Jane, you sure have been busy making the soup.  I am not a big soup eater, but I do like a good home-made veggie soup. I have a good recipe for one called "Autumn Soup" with ground beef and pasta noodles. It is almost like a stew. I like a thick soup. I don't make it very often, but it is good.

As I mentioned above, I have been on here for way too long. I need to get myself dressed and take some papers down to the office.  I almost forgot that the rent is due today, also.  There is a pharmacist coming here on Thursday to give flu shots and I need to take the paperwork to the office for that.  Something about the pharmacist registering the person before Thurs. I usually get it at my primary care doctor, but when I saw her the end of Aug. it was too early, and I don't see her anymore until after the first of the year.  So, I will get it here.

I will try to get back later.  Have a great afternoon.  Since I had a late breakfast, not ready for lunch yet.

JOY, I'm happy about your good news.  I hope the bad stuff stays away.  I also love the sound of your family and friends gathering.  What a nice thing to do for everyone!

I also like the sound of your "Autumn Soup".  Would you share the recipe?  I love to try new soups and casseroles!

The movie was great and my time spent with a friend was special, too.  We laughed a lot and shared some memories n the ride there nd back.

Doggies have been fed and my supper is in the oven.  I made mac and cheese.  I was hungry for it!  But it has to be brown on top. 

OOPS!  There goes the buzzer!  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Jane,  I will be happy to share the soup recipe with you.  But, I will have to look it up. I guess I could put it on the message board for recipes. I know Larry did a great job of categorizing a lot of recipes and I will have to look and see where to put it.  It will take me a couple days to get around to it.

JaneS

That's OK, JOY, I'm not ready to make more soup right now.  Just let me know when and where it is.  If you want to, you could email it to me.  If that's too much trouble, just tell me where to look when you're ready.

Now, I'm off to bed.  I wish Everyfriend a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning Everyfriend...and a special Good Morning to you, LLOYD for being such an early bird. 

We're just sitting here waiting for the boinger.  Last night I noticd that I didn't have any lunch meat or cheese to make a sandwich for work today so I boiled a couple of eggs.  This morning I made some egg salad and that's my sandwich.  When I only have 15 minutes to eat it, a sandwich is easiest to do. 

Wish me smiles!  I'll be doing my stint at Wally World today. 

I wonder where Shirly was last night!

I hope you all have a lovely day!

Lloyd, enjoy your day, maybe rest would be in order since you didn't get much sleep.

Gloria, hope yesterday went well for you.

Enjoy your day everyone.

I'm still plugging along.  The physical therapist discharged me yesterday and I think he did help me to strengthen my legs somewhat.  Now it is up to me to do the daily exercises and I hope I will be good about that.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Good morning everyone, yesterday did not happen. We got to the xray place and I was told the insurance OK had not come in yet and unless I was ready to pay for it out of pocket the CT scan couple not be done. I saw red and my son was not happy either. It is now set for Friday morning. I told them they could have called before we got there so could have saved the trip. Told them to call Thursday if the the insurance OK'd it so we would not go for nothing again. I am still upset and not up to being a pleasant person. My CNA had a short day because had to cancel her and Friday will lose more. At least it was only a 4 hour fast before the scan and not longer  than that.

Not up to talking this morning, think I have caught up on a bit of the sleep I did not get waiting for the alarm to go off yesterday so hopefully my outlook will improve as the day goes on.

BUBBLE  thanks for the October page and the graphics. I remember how many I used to post of the autumn scenes.

Have a good day.

GLORIA, relax, breathe deeply, think good thoughts!  There, doesn't that feel better?

PHYLLIS, maybe we better hound you about the exercises.  What do you think?  GET WITH IT GIRL!  DON"T JUST SIT THERE!  If you do just sit there, that might turn out to be all you can do.  Think about that!

I'm off to the showers and off to work.  Thanks AMY for the good wishes.  I hope I don't forget milk on the way home.

G'Day all. Hope everone is in the best of health, sorry i have been absent for a few days, but i still manage to look in when i can, i have found another interesting 'Armchair Walk' that you may like to take, another old Church but this one has a very interesting plaque on the wall concerning the origins of the family name of 'Washington' which i hope may be of interest to you all, the old village of Washington is quite close to this Church, the Church shown here 'Poynings'  is just 'A ten minute Drive' from where we live, Washington about thirty minutes further to the west, hope you enjoy this little walk,again there are one or two old Pub's we can stop at as we walk around, they make it all the more interesting !. :) .

GOOD EVENING......good evening, good evening, good evening.....

There really is an echo in here!

Last night was a terrible night of NO sleep for me, so I will not be here long, but did want to pop in and at least say HELLO EVERYFRIEND.

JANE, nice to read tha5 you enjoyed your time with your friends and that you enjoyed the movie.

GLORIA, I am sorry to read that you were not able to get your scan yesterday.....there is no excuse for them not letting you know this before you arrived for your appointment 😩😩

PHYLLIS, it is good that the PT has released you.  I do hope you can continue your exercises and get stronger.

AMY, is today the day Kyle is to get his report on his scan done last week? 

We managed to get our passport pictures taken this afternoon as we need to get our passports renewed just incase we find we can get away one of these days.    Speaking of getting away, we are not going to be able to go see Jonah next week as we had planned....seems our DIL Megan's Parents made some reservations the same day we did and DIL thought it was too much right at the same time, even tho we were not to arrive for three days after they were to leave.  It is OK, we called Southwest Airlines and we found out one can cancel and get their money totally refunded if you call within 24 hours of making the reservation.  Of course you probably all know we have been trying to find a time we could get a trip planned that we were not needed her to help Michele, and we we so excited that we finally had the opportunity......oh well.  I have to admit that I was very disappointed, but we all know  things have a way of working out for the best.  Mark called tonight and told us he was disappointed that we can not come now but hoped we can find another time soon and that he hoped it would work out for Megan. 

We also got our flu shots today.  They have really been pushing for people to get them right away as the6 expect it to be a bad year for the flu.....

I hope you all had a good day. 

I am off to bed and hope it is a much better night of sleep for me.  I guess I will go ahead and turn out the lights.
