  • 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.

Dryer is running & I just walked the cats down to the river. They all roll in the sand, sharpen their claws on the willows & hide from each other. They are waiting in the pool area for their last meal of the day. Spoiled Callie refused to eat the canned chicken breast so it will be in her dish along with the Friskies.

Still have to trim my hair & shower, Sat night bath, you know. Oops, dryer stopped so better go fold. Sweet dreams to all...

Amy, I'd love to be in bear country but probably get in trouble. They really are too big to play with, aren't they?  ::)

Mary Ann, I didn't notice when looking for a washer, that it doesn't operate like all others. This is a Maytag but calls for the EH or whatever the code is detergents, softners, etc. But I looked tonight & see that my normal Downy has that code as well so guess I don't have to use pods. We will adjust to each other sooner or later. I don't like changes...period!

Gloria, I'm going to put that stuff on thicker after my shower, maybe it takes more on the leg (tougher skin?). I can't lift the leg up to put on socks... strange, can't tell where it hurts to rub but nearly squirt tears out to walk or even straighten it out when sitting. Doesn't make sense at all. At least it isn't my driving leg!

Wishing everyone a Super Sunday.... smiles and happy thoughts.  Shirley

Mary Ann

Shirley, Jim and Joan had had a Maytag pair so I am sure when his washer went on the fritz, he went to the store and said he wanted a Maytag.  He got one, but probably the most expensive one.  At the time, he was living alone and had only his own wash.  I am sure there were other Maytag washers in the store, but Jim was gullible and bought what was suggested.  Yes, you will get used to it.

It's been one of those days!  In fact, it's been one of those weeks!  And I'm glad it's over.  However, next week is shaping up to be "one of those weeks, too".

Cathy and I went to he Amish Store today and, among other things, I got the beginnings of the Christmas fruit cake and some chocolate to start the candy.  If it's not one thing going on, it's the next.  Never a dull moment around here!

My daughter, Christy, the one in Maryland is here tonight.  She came to bring some of Frankie's stuff from down there and to move some of the stuff out of my shed and into F's new apartment.  See what I mean?  Tomorrow is shaping up to be another busy day!

And on top of Annie's "itchies", Mickie has developed a case of the "trots".  We were out at 3 a.m. this morning and I hope that's not going to happen again.  But I'm glad she has warning!

Now I'm off to bed.  Christy already went.  She has early mornings in her life.  I wish you all a peaceful night and a happy tomorrow and may God bless us, every one.

P.S. Night light on. Overheads off!

This is going to be a quickie.  Dogs have to be fed and I'm getting ready for church at 8.  But I have my coffee and it's already been so busy that I'm ready to "set a spell" and drink my coffee.

LLOYD, I'm sorry you're having trouble with your computer but I hope your feeling better and on the mend. Don't forget that worrying puts a strain on our whole bodies.  I have to remind myself of that sometimes before my blood pressure jumps!  Remind yourself often!

It's supposed to rain later today so we may be moving Frankie's stuff in he rain.  At least the mattress is up there already and we don't have to wonder how to keep that dry. 

I hope you all have a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way.

Not sure how much sleep I got... few hours if lucky. Up about 2:00 am with a knee/leg aching, craziest thing that it is such pain to lift it...just raise it enough to turn over. Imagine the worst charlie-horse you've ever had & being in the knee instead of calf. Can't see a thing wrong... just ugly old leg with bright purple veins! I wrapped an Epsom soaked towel around the leg, covered with plastic & heat pad for an hour. Didn't help. :crazy2:

Fed Tom, he is always thinking meal time. Tiger didn't show up for their last meal last night & still not home this morning. I always think "little Miss Nosy" probably got caught in someone's open garage & closed in. They freeze in place if someone shows up & they can't get away before they spot the person. I've watched one do that in my garage (not these cats but a different feral). They are free to roam so anything can happen to them. I will go serve Callie her breakfast in bed...she loves her heated bed in the garage & acts so pleased to get breakfast brought out. She lets me know if she wants inside or in the garage or out in the pool area with her kids. They have me well trained.

Better get moving, I'm dressed & ready to leave but would stop to feed Tiger if she shows up. Have a Super Sunday!



Amy

Good morning everyone..

Shirley, get that leg checked out....could it be a blood clot??? You sure don't want that!

Back from my charges and he is doing great, still limps on that leg but could stand on it to water the grass. :)
Have a ham bone that should be into bean/pea soup so that is a job for the IP.

Jane, take it easy, let the younger ones do a lot of the bull work. Now why does pot calling the kettle black come into mind??? Well just take it easy.

Better go see what our dogs are up to...too quiet and he has yet to reach the other side of the earth from dinning....but soon.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone 35° and the thermostat go turned up when I got up. Yesterday was a sunny day and I did get out for a walk but it was still a little windy so did not stay out long. Finally got every ting I bought Friday put away, now the galley kitchen looks better. I do miss a big kitchen with a lot of storage. So many thing get stored on the floor in the one closet in here. Oh well I really do not need a lot of THINGS anymore so that helps.

AMY  I have seen pantrys bigger than my kitchen. The fridge and freezer are not as big as the one I bought back in 1978-still running at my son's house in my old apartment. The ones here ate taller and less room cheap ones. Both GE but not same quality. They are starting to replace some that no longer keep food cold or frozen.

LLOYD  hope you slept better last night. Lack of sleep is not good for anyone.

MARY ANN  thank you for the offer but this place only has 2 windows and we are supposed to keep them clear in case of a fire and the firemen can get into the windows if needed. Then with the baseboard heat it gets too hot for plants near the windows. The few I have do not need sunshine as long as the room is bright. The lack of windows still gets to me. First place I have lived that I do not have windows on all sides but means less of them to wash.

SHIRLEY  I found an east window is great for plants, early sun does not burn them. If y our plant gets too many roots in a small pot it does need repotting, roots do have to have room to grow. Ask your son to repot it. My daughter and her family always looked forward to the goody box I sent for Christmas with different cookies and fudge all home made by me. I can no longer make any of those things.
I wish they still used the razor for haircuts, when they started using scissors my hair was never the same of course scissors are much faster. At least I can look out a window and see the maples at the back of it parking lot and now they have green leaves on the lower branches but the tops are a deep red and in the mornings when the sun is shining on them they glow. I should get myself a camera so could take pictures of it. Now whose fault  is it that you have cats? Not mine for sure. I talked to my CNA yesterday ad she is still having trouble with her leg, almost 2 weeks, On Tuesday she has an appointment with a Orthopedic doctor and will see what happens then. I sure miss her, so used to having the same one all the time and I have been having a different one every day since she has been out. Some are OK and others just want to sit.

JANE  glad you showed up before we sent a search party off to find you. My oldest son looks forward to the holiday season when he can buy some fruitcake but last year could not find any. I always see them in a catalog I get around that time so if I get that one this year again  I will order one for him.

LLOYD  hope you slept better last night.

Have a good day.

Storm Nestor is with us so it is a rainy, dark morning. But, we needed the rain.

I'm having appliance problems, too.  The dishwasher has just quit....again.  I am trying to decide if I should call a repairman or just get rid of this thing.  It is 9 or 10 years old.  For now, I must wash dishes by hand.  I have NEVER enjoyed dishwashing!  :tickedoff:

I am still learning to live with the clothes washer I bought several months ago, Shirley.  I don't like the water level sensor feature.  I wish it would let me set my own water level according to how much water I think it needs to do a good job.  Why can't these manufacturer's let us make our own decisions?  I really dislike all of these automation features that never seem to fit my requirements and always seem to fail.  The more bells and whistles they load on the more chance that they won't work!

Oh, well. If it weren't for the problems and decisions to be made life would be really dull.

Take care, All.

Back from church & breakfast at McDonald's with the family. My DIL brought me a small loaf of banana bread, she does make good banana bread & those small loaves are perfect for one person. I'm going to soak my back, was a struggle with the kneeling & walking so gotta get serious. Got to be that bunch of nerves causing the problem. Since Fitbit says I got 2 hours & 15 min sleep, will probably doze off while soaking.

Jane, have you ever tried castor oil (just plain ole kind from the drug store...odorless/tasteless).. for the ichies on your fur babies?  I put it on our German Shepherd's (just rub it in with fingers) when she would chew off whole patches. Doesn't hurt them & sure worked for her. She didn't particularly like the taste, but also seemed to stop the itch. Used for all kind of skin rashes when we lived in England. I even had my daughter bring be back a jar from Boots the Chemist when she was there. She was surprised that the lady she asked where it was knew all about it.  ;) Over there they mix with powdered zink & works miracles. Not sure the zink part would be good for the pups.

Phyllis, I haven't used my dish washer but a few times since Cas died. I have a dish pan in one sink & drainer with mat on the side & works perfectly for my needs. I've been told not good to NOT use a dish washer because the rubber gaskets dry out, so now I'm afraid to run it! Most of my dishes are pots & pans that I never put in the washer so not a problem. I do recall a repair man saying that "unless a dishwasher SAYS you don't need to pre-wash, consider the fact they do NOT come with a garbage disposal built in, so all those food particles have to go somewhere!" Sometimes life is just easier when we cut out all the "time saving" features.

Gloria, I found the Shick injector blades at a local drugstore... 5 in a pack for $5.00.. so makes a cheap hair cut. If you can reach to trim around your face & leave the back to the beauticians, you might at least get the front to please you. I dread when I can't do the back myself because it really does stick out like straw when cut with scissors.

The wind is blowing something fierce, sun shining but cool enough to feel like fall. I love this time of year.

Good evening from Sunny Southern California💥

We have enjoyed a wonderful time here.  Spent 4 days with Dave, Michele and family.  They flew back to Colorado last night and we fly back tomorrow night.  We spent this day just looking at famous beach towns.  We intended to go to the Richard Nixon Library, but found out you need to buy tickets in advance, so that took care of that.  First tickets available now are on the 27th!  Thought about Ronald Regan Library, but it is a bit farther than we wanted to drive today.  We drove as far north as Long Beach.  Then drove back to Huntington Beach where we had dinner at a cute place right on the water in the marina.  The boats in the marina were more like Yachts! 

A new picture of my Jonah.  His other grandparents are in Sacramento with he and his family....hence the Green Bay outfit!  He is getting so big and really thinning out now that he is walking! 

We have been very short on cellular data, so I have been trying my best to stay off of the internet.  We are in a hotel tonight with internet so I am trying to get caught up!

It is cold and very windy in Denver, so I am certainly not looking forward to going home😩😢

Michele posted this with a picture of her kiddos on the beach, and I hope you will not mind me sharing this with you all?

"As I sat on the beach tonight, watching our last sunset while on vacation in California, as my kids played in the Pacific, I was overcome with so much gratitude. I started crying and grabbed Dave's hand. I told him I couldn't believe how blessed I was to be here in this moment. All I want is to see my kids grow up and to grow old with him.  His reply was that I'm one of lucky ones who actually realizes what a gift life is. He's so right.

I'm so lucky to be alive. Yes, I'm still Stage 4, I still have cancer. I've completed chemo and will start radiation when I return to Colorado. I share this because I realize my posts don't reflect my illness, my everyday battle. But, I sure hope they reflect my gratitude for each day I'm given. Go love on your loved ones and I'll be right here kicking cancers ass loving on mine, too! xo #grateful #teammichelehardin #kickingrectalcancersass"

pleasant dreams to all.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  We've been up and out and put the chicken to cooking...one pot to make dog food and one pot for my dinner. 

All this talk of fruit cake makes me wish I could share with all of you.  Mine isn't as fancy as the ones you see on line but the recipe has been around long enough to know that it's good stuff.  I happened to mention to Christy that I'd bought some of the stuff to get started on fruit cake and she said, "Was Gong in the kitchen with you?"  My kids all called my mother "Gong".  It's what came out when Cathy tried to call her by name and it stuck.  She loved it!  I heard her tell someone once that her grandkids must think she's the world's biggest ding-a-ling! 

I'm off to Wally World this morning!  Maybe, while I'm out, I'll check what the postage would be to send a half pound fruit cake in the mail.  If it's reasonable, I'll let you know and you can tell me before the second week in November if you're really interested or just being nice. 

Gotta go, the boinger is going off and the fur kids don't like to wait.  After we're all fed, I have to get a shower and get ready for work.

I wish you all a lovely day!

Good morning everyone.

Nice day so far,calling for rain Tue to Fri  unless they change their minds.

All the animals are feed, walked and loved for now. I do believe the medication is  working on Rex's leg, he seems to be doing better.

Today is voting day and we will do that after I take Kyle for his appointment. One can't or shouldn't complain about the government unless they vote.

Better get at it.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning everyone, woke later than I have been doing but slept good. 49°, warmer than the mornings have been. Had some rain last night.

LLOYD  does no good to worry, that problem will hurt the man who brought it on will suffer more than you when he realizes he has lost a very good friend.

PHYLLIS  glad the washers in here are easy to use, like you with the buttons and whistles on every thing I would never be able to understand them.

SHIRLEY  at one time I would cut the top of my hair but now I even have trouble brushing/combing my hair.

JENNY  Michele is one brave lady. We never know when where or who will be hit with that rotten cancer.

MARY ANN  wrote that address down. Thanks.

JANE  my Mom made fruitcake and I never liked it and never had a recipe for it. Now I would not be able to make one if I wanted to.

AMY  hope the voting lines are too long.

Have a good day.

I used to make a fruitcake with a spice cake mix and a container of citron, nothing fancy but it seemed to disappear each Christmas.  I am sure there was something else in it but I don't remember what.  I haven't made it in years and since I don't cook or bake any more, I won't be making it again.  I do remember that I covered it with cheesecloth, then poured some rum over it for a few weeks.  Maybe that is why it tasted so good.

Jenny, what a thought provoking post by Michele..... and I'm moved to tears by her attitude. Dave is lucky and the kids have quite a role model to live up to for the rest of their lives. I still pray for a miracle and that they will have many years to love on each other. Thank you for posting her message. Can't believe how Jonah has grown & changed, he looks like at least 2-3 years old, but still think he looks like YOU! Something about him reminds me of your expressive face when we "met on the mountain". I don't remember that I have a touch screen on this laptop until I want to see something like that little boy's face... and can enlarge with a twist of fingers!

I'm enjoying all the talk about fruit cake, brings back memories of Christmas in England. My mother wasn't a fruit cake fan but Dad's mother made a fruit cake that was an award winner (so Mother said). It was really a prune cake & had fruit & nuts in that & my mind went over the top in disgust. My youngest brother had convinced me that the raisins were ticks... like their hunting dogs would have from being in the woods. Icky big blood suckers that everyone pulled off as the dogs went past. I imagined all the the other stuff in the cake just as horrible, so having that cake sit on the pedestal of the "sideboard" (a beautifully carved piece of walnut wood furniture that sat in a place of honor in the dining room), couldn't miss seeing the cake as the light from the window just west of the cake would light it up like a spotlight. It was my worst nightmare because we were not allowed to say we didn't care for any, "just a small piece, please" was the best we could do. I have never gotten over my dread of any type cake with "stuff" in it, so when the neighbor in England explained how long they worked on their fruit cake before Christmas, I was prepared with my response of, "only a small piece, please".... I still pick raisins out of cinnamon rolls, or don't eat the rolls at all, but keep a can of raisins on the cabinet to snack on since they are so good for us.  ;)

My good news this morning is the leg is working, not normal but the sharp pain is gone & while the muscles are weak from a week long lack of exercise, I think the worst is over. Being careful so it doesn't snap back out of place, whatever it was.  Since the leg wouldn't allow me to bend down, I have a ton of stuff to fold & put away. Merry Monday to all.... guess that soaking helped after all yesterday.  :thumbup:

I apologize if this was posted previously.....


This is just a beautifully written piece; and so true. Take a couple of minutes to read it. You'll be glad you did.
A WINTER FRIEND
This article is so befitting for all of us... take time to ponder... the last statement cannot be refuted:- 
 
I FIRST STARTED READING THIS EMAIL AND WAS READING FAST UNTIL I REACHED THE THIRD SENTENCE. I STOPPED THEN AND STARTED OVER, READING SLOWER, AND THINKING ABOUT EVERY WORD... IT MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK.
So, please READ SLOWLY!
AND THEN IT IS WINTER
You know time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems like yesterday that I was young, just married, and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all those years went.
I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is... the winter of my life, and it catches me by surprise... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those "older people" were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like.
But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey... they move slower and I see an older person in myself now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me... but, I see the great change... Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.
Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!
And so... now I enter this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!! But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last... this I know, that when it's over on this earth... it's over. A new adventure will begin!
Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done... things I should have done, but indeed, there are also many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.
So, if you're not in your winter yet... let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life, please do it quickly! Don't put things off too long!! Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can TODAY, as you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!
You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life.. so, LIVE FOR TODAY and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember.. and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past!!
"Life" is a GIFT to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one.
Remember: "It is Health that is real Wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."
~Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Going out is good.. coming home is even better!
~You forget names... but it's OK, because other people forgot they even knew you!!!
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything.... especially golf.
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep."
~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..
~You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?".."when?"...???
~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless?!"
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~Everybody whispers.
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear.
~But "Old" is good in some things:
Old Songs, Old movies ...
and best of all, our dear ...OLD FRIENDS!!
Stay well, "OLD FRIEND!"
Send this on to other "Old Friends" and let them laugh in agreement!

Don, I can relate to nearly everything in that piece as I already am in the winter of my life.  Thanks for posting it and I saved it.

Great piece, Don.... and if anyone posted it before, I forgot. Thanks for showing up & bringing it.

Busy day around here... nothing much accomplished but didn't get a nap so will be heading to bed before long. Cats had their last meal for the day, Callie sleeping in her heated bed in the garage, Tom & Tiger strolling around the house trying to decide if they will stay in or go out. The light is on downstairs because I thought I might do a little ironing. Didn't happen. Kind of between seasons, had to drag out a cooler shirt that had made it's way to the under bed storage containers. Plan to do some sorting as I store this season.

Sweet dreams to all or good night if nobody shows to turn out the lights.  :'(

I am also off to bed. Folks Are back home and happy with the healing of Rex's leg. Told them about the young fox that was playing chicken in the traffic and I hope it stays off the road.

Jenny, I think we all take our health for granted until we hear of others fighting for theirs. Michele is a strong lady and will get through all of this..

Jane, get the light please..

whine whine whine!  Why do I always have to get the lights?  OK, I'll do it but if JENNY comes by it's not my fault if she stumbles.

And speaking of JENNY, I loved your item from Michele!  She must be one heckove a lady!  I cried with her.  You can certainly be proud of her!

DON, your piece fit right in with the rest of my day.  I guess you might say I'm in that "winter" too!  I had two phone calls from different doctors.  The one who took the tissue sample out of my jaw wants me to come back.  The lab where she sent the sample for the biopsy wants a larger sample so that's one thing.  Then  guess they've been reporting my blood pressure levels and my regular PCP wants me to come in.  They even called me and set up a special visit and she wants me to take home a monitor and check it twice a day.  I'm afraid my days of "no internal meds" are coming to an end.  The worst part is, I'm going to have to tell my kids because they'd never forgive me if something happened and I hadn't forewarned them. 

The chiropractor that I'm going to tomorrow is also an applied kinesiologist and a licensed herbalist.  I'm going to discuss it with her before I have my appointment tomorrow evening with the PCP. 

And now I'm going to get ready for bed and like Scarlett O'Hara, "I'll think about that tomorrow"

Lights are out!  Night light is on!

Good morning everyone.
Woke to the sound of the falling rain..could have  stayed in bed and just enjoy the music it was making.

Today is a get the little jobs done around home and hope to sew more.

Lloyd,doesn't that make you want to spit nails when the cattle do that?? I tried 3 times to get a bull loaded and on the fourth time when I went to his pen told him if he didn't go out a bull he would go out as a steer!! Once I opened the gate he trotted right out and right in the truck, leaving the trucker and I opened mouthed.

Jane ,thank you for turning out the lights.:)
Your Dr is taking good care of you monitoring your bp. I know mine raises when I go to the Dr.....white coat syndrome :).

Gloria, the line wasn't long and it gave one a chance to visit with neighbours. Now we won't have to listen to all the commercials with politicians running each other down.

Shirley, happy to read your leg is better. There are days here you can go out with just a tshirt and the next day you may need a coat! All too soon it will be heavy coat, boots and gloves..

Better get going here.

Hi to Phyliss and Joy if you get a chance to pop in.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  The boinger is about to go off and then my day will begin!  Cathy's picking me up at 9 for our trip to the chiropractor and then a stop at he pharmacy for eye drops on the way home.  This early evening will be a trip to my regular PCP and, hopefully, a nap in between. 

There goes the boinger and my day begins.

I wish you all a lovely day!
Make it your own in every way!
