Oldiesmann: Should be fixed now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

Astro:   feel free to start a topic here. Any duplicated topics may be merged together so we don't have two topics of similar nature.  Has that been eliminated?

It was nice to see Seniors and Friends instead of the Gateway note.

Nothing of importance happened here except frustration at not being able to communicate here. 

Welcome back!

Mary Ann


Mary Ann, I agree it is nice to be back. Almost felt like we were sent to our rooms :)))

We are back, NOT ABANDONED ......Thanks to all that brought us back together!  Certainly was lonely out here in Kansas!  :angel4:  :angel2:  :cheers:  :excited:


Whoo Hoo.....we are up and running once again.  I have to admit not being able to get in nearly caused me a panic attack 😩😩

So happy to see you all. 



Woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground and high winds. Thankfully we didn't lose power but others did and I hope they now have it back on as it is getting cold out!

I did have that date with Jack and then I put him away....for good I wish. :) All 80 blocks are done now just to sew them together.

Tomorrow we get to look after the neighbours dog (our boy ) lol We have to stay around home as the fellow from Bell will be here to "fix" the remote.

So nice to come in and see everyone popping in to say hello. Now for Janie, Lloyd ,Joy, Phyliss, Carol  and Gloria.

Shirley hope the Dr visit went alright.

My friend had a trip to ER the other day she has pneumonia and pleurisy... on antibiotics now.

Enjoy your evening everyone.

Good evening everyone. well it is good to be able to get on line here as well. Misery loves company, I read that I was not alone. with locked out. I struggled quite awhile.and gave up. Nicole came by and it had fixed its self. our temperature Has warmed up to 54ยบ and wend has settled a little. no news to report here good or bad. see you all later.



OLDIESMAN-MICHAEL  thank you for getting us back in action here again. Did not know if lines were down or what happened. Never thought of the  site being down. Been running good for so long with no problems.

Good evening, tried all day to get in and couldn't. Was beginning to think something was wrong some place, never thought about the site being down. 
We had a lot of rain and very strong winds last night. A lot of trees ad branches down. The local news at 6 said there were still over 11,000 homes without power. We are lucky in this town, have  local electricity and all the workers live in town and don't want to be without it so are always out  when a chance of power going out. The rest of the state has National grid and from every little storm seems their power goes out.
Thursday I didn't get too wet going to the dentist, was more like a drizzle. Coming home it was pouring. Getting  from the car onto the porch in front of the building I was drenched.
They took xrays of my teeth and found I have cavities just under the gum line. My favorite dentist said those teeth should come out before they get infected.  They set the appointment for that in December. I will call on Monday and see If I can change it till the end of March or April. I have a hard time putting a winter jacket on and off. I have to sit on the bed to do it here. Yesterday the tech took it off for me and the dentist helped me get it on. I do hate asking for help.

Have a good night and hope we are still here tomorrow.

Hooray! For Oldiesman!  We're up and running again!  That was awful!  I felt so lonely that I almost cried.  I really missed all of you!

Today was a pretty good day all day!  Even the hours at work went well.  Then I went by and picked up Frankie for a little visit and her friend picked her up about the same time Cathy picked me up to go to the Amish store.  Got a lot done but I'm tired!

AMY, I'm glad "Jack" has gone home.  He's not a fun guy to have around!  In fact, he can get really "picky" at times.

After the storm passed through, it got really cold here.  I rooted out my winter jacket to take the girls out today.  It wasn't just cold, it was also windy and that made it feel even colder. 

I'm going to go wrap up in a blanket and watch a couple episodes of Home Improvement and then hit the hay.  Frankie's father is picking her up to attend her aunt's funeral tomorrow and they're going to drop off her doggie on the way.  That was my idea.  I think he'll be happier here with us than alone in her apartment.  The doggies all get along fine and they eat the same food and go out at the same time so we'll have a good day!

I hope you all had a good day.  I missed you and I'm glad you're all back!

I'm glad to see things look back to normal now.  I felt so lost; it isn't that you can pick up a phone and call someone or e-mail someone (I  have the e-mails of several people here). 

I hope we can stay well and I'd like it if S&F would also stay well; we don't need any more outages.

So nice to know that I can come back in and say goodnight!

SHIRLEY, I hope everything went well for you yesterday and you will have time to come in and give us a update on how you are doing after the medical appointment yesterday.

GLORIA, I am sorry to read that the dentist appointment did not go as well as I am sure you would have liked and then you get drenched on the way home. 

We did go meet with the lady about the property I mentioned a couple of nights ago.  We did put our money down to start the process on the new condo that we are thinking about buying.  At this point we can get ALL of our money back at any time, and if we did not want to take a chance that someone else would buy it and then we would not be able to get in this building.  We have the paperwork to read through and all the information about what choices we have for the cabinets, flooring, appliances etc.  I must admit it is a bit frightening to think about actually doing this as we have so much stuff to get rid of, but we have at least 8 to 9 months to get it accomplished.  We have to make our choices before the end of the year for the inside.  That is going to be a job in its own right deciding how much extra we want to add to the original investment.

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND,
