My GD brought wife to see me, I meet with the doctors Monday to tell me whether they are going to send me to Columbia or here in KC. to one of the Hospitals that have a heart Lab. and can do the heart repair. sure was good to get Kisses and hugs from them both.        https://www.youtube.com/embed/N5ddoyfn6g4

Good one, Lloyd, I only got the one to show, my wi-fi stinks! Glad your gr-daughter brought Nancy for a visit, the days are long before surgery but will keep you busy making you walk & move about after. Hope they pick the best doctor for what you need repaired. Is KC closer than Columbia for the family to travel?

Amy, I just have to tell someone that yesterday (Jan.3) my pet chicken died "back during WWII". Not everyone thinks of our fur or feathered friends are real people, but I think you do. My youngest brother stayed home from school with me that day and we made a plaster of paris plaque with her name on in alphabet macaroni. the kind Mother put in soup. Then my brother painted the letters (Maggie) with our sister's nail polish... My aunt gave me the baby chicken the first time we visited their farm after the war started. She rode in my doll buggy & I dressed her with a bolero jacket, she would walk around in it & follow me everywhere. She could even jump rope. After she died Mother talked to a vet that said she probably ate too much of my fudge, I always shared everything with her. My teachers & principal even allowed me to bring her to school one day, and so impressed with her the teacher bought every kid in the class a baby chicken for Easter. The principal had moved up to the high school by the time I was a Junior & Senior so I had a good buddy sitting in THE SEAT. I'm not sure what year she died, but January 3rd never goes by that I don't think of her.  :smitten:   Always was a strange kid.... ::)

Dang it.....I just came in to see that I must not have posted my post and now it is gone😩😢

I really did not have that much to say, but I did want LLOYD to know that I am thinking about him AND for JANE to know that I was sure happy to read that Frankies issue is not good, but knowing it is treatable is certainly a good thing.  Continued thoughts and prayers for Frankie and Lloyd🙏🙏

SHIRLEY, I am sorry that you continue to have the pain in your head, but as always you just keep going like the energizer bunny❣️ I had to smile as I read about your Pet Chicken Maggie😘

We are picking up dinner to take to Dave and Michele's and it is time to head out and get that done.

Have a good evening EVERYFRIEND, and I am sorry I have not responded to many that said things I wanted to comment on.

Shirley, I remember dates, too, but of people, not animals.  I used to remember the date our dog died, but now I can only tell you it was around Memorial Day.  She was the only pet we had until Kendrick joined the family.  My hope is that he will outlive me and I'll let others find a new home for him.  Kendrick is 6 1/2.  Our dog was about 10.

I enjoyed the story about your chicken.

I'm concerned about the pain in your head and I hope doctors find a cure for it.  It has gone on too long.

Especially to you Lloyd, very surprised to see that you are in Hospital, both Jean and myself wish you well and a speedy recovery, I know how you must be feeling but hold on mate, your in the best place and i'm sure you will feel your old self again soon, ( Hope you get to read this),
When you are feeling better and are able, be sure to let me know and we can start chatting again.
                                   Cheerio for now, to all.   Roly. :thumbup:

Amy

Good morning everyone..

A light dusting of snow last night, nothing to worry abut other than watching where we are stepping as it is icy underneath.

A few things need to be done later today but that is all.

Jane I think it came from The Christmas Carol ... And so as Tiny Tim said A Merry Christmas to us all God bless us every one.

Shirley, I had Miss Biddy a Rhode Island chick/hen. She didn't get dressed up but she would follow you everywhere. Then the list goes on..Blue the lamb, Coal the calf ,Hector the pig. He would sit for a piece of bread and lay down to get his tummy rubbed .Seems my life is surrounded with animals.....some I really loved and others well..some were ornery like Patches the cow, never did sit to milk her..... I would lean over with my head on her flank and hope to feel the reflex when she was going to kick..

Jenny,that is nice of you to "do dinner " gives everyone a break at a busy time of year.

Lloyd, thank you for the video, always enjoyed that song. Hope today brings you answers and a date for your operation.

Roley, hello!! Nice to see you Happy New Years to you and Jean. Wishing you all the best in 2020.

Better get a move on.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I slept better last night but still not through the night.  Lots of restless hours...   Oh well!  It's better than nothing and I tried not to sleep during the day.  It worked for most of the day but the TV put me to sleep around 10.

My cousin who grew up with me and my sister died in Wisconsin probably as the ball was dropping in Times Square.  I talked with her daughter last night and we had some tears together and agreed that even though we know she's better where she is now, we're going to miss her! 

I have to go get ready for church while I wait for the boinger for Mickie's pill.  It's going to be a busy day.  Frankie called last night to "see if I'm busy today".  That means that since she doesn't have a car yet, she needs a ride somewhere.  This time it's to get groceries.  I don't need groceries but I'll take her and while she shops for groceries, I'll look for a new office chair. 

AMY, you're right about the line being from Dickens, "A Christmas Carol".  I've loved it since the first time I heard it and that was a looooooong time ago.  What a nice way to end a story!

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

Good morning everyone, stayed up late last night reading a book and could not put it down. Woke just after 10 this morning. Looks like the sun will break through today. We sure can use it after all the rain and gloom. I still have not put every thing away from my shopping trip. I do some and need to sit and rest. It's times like this I feel useless.

PHYLLIS  not lazy just tired. If you arelazy that means I am too.

SHIRLEY  I so hope my regular CNA gets back soon. I dislike lazy people who want to sit and not do what they are paid to do.

SANDY  I would love  to add at least 15 pounds so my doctor would stop worrying about my weight. Heck am now am the weight I was when I got married 69 years ago.

AMY  when she called me last week she said she had 2 more PT sessions and then a visit to the doctor. He has to release her to go back to work. Hope he gives the OK. At times I think I would like one of thse smart pots but I do not have room for what I have now.

LLOYD  I will watch the links when I finish here. Glad Nancy got to see you.

JANE  God bless us everyone, isn't  that  from Dickens Christmas story and Tiny Tim say that at the end when Scrooge finally got a heart?

Past noon and I think I btter go make my breakfast, more like lunch time.

Have a good day.

"Sandy, putting it on is easier than taking it off. Good luck with your plan."   Amy

Youv'e got that right.   I put weight on fast if
I  don't watch it.   And I have gone a few months
now not watching it... 
Shame on me!

"SANDY  I would love  to add at least 15 pounds so my doctor would stop worrying about my weight. Heck am now am the weight I was when I got married 69 years ago."

Gloria,  aren't  you lucky to be the same
weight as you were when you got married... 
I am many many pounds away from that!

I do know that I  can't forget to watch it
carefully....  so I am not surprised to have
put on the pounds over the holidays... 

Oh well ...  can't complain... but still I do!!

Sandy, I think I mentioned somewhere that Tom lost one pound over the holidays so he is watching his ps and qs.  I try to keep my weight within a five pound range and managed to stay there.  The trouble during holidays, especially, is that you can have the best of intentions, but friends invite you for lunch or a party and all plans go out the window!  I'm too short for my weight, but if I lost to agree with my height, you would not be able to find me.  So I'll try to stay around where I am weight-wise.

Mary Ann

Sandy



Yes,  the holidays make
maintaining weightvery difficult....   
so many goodies and so many
choices...

That just goes along with
the  celebrations!

You did good  Mary Ann not to put on too much weight!

Jane, sorry to read about your cousin, we are "at that age" and sadly watch as so many of our loved ones leave us. Still hurts so hugs for your loss. By the way, my husband had a near new desk chair, leather & really nice looking but way to big for this short body. I asked both of my sons if they wanted but they "hem-hawed" until I finally told them I was going to give it to anyone that would haul it off. Both said they'd take it & finally they decided which would actually use it. I had a short bar stool to use until I found one that fit, but as the days went by I noticed that new "rotator" sitting in the corner & pulled it over & by golly, it works just great! It is comfy, can swivel around to use one computer or the other & know if I ever need it again, it's right here ready to roll. I am so pleased with my discovery I don't plan to look any more for the perfect chair!

Jenny, my thoughts and prayers are still with Michele & all the family. I know you do all you can to help.

Gloria, like you, I will stay up all night to finish a book, sure can't put me to sleep by reading. I have a friend that will read a chapter or read until sleepy but give me a good book and I'd be thinking about it until finished! I haven't read a good book for a long time.

Oh, darn, forgot I'm on the iPad & don't know how to copy & paste like the computer... can't drag & get the print to highlight. I normally type my post, highlight, copy & delete & then put in the text after choosing size, color & font... then post. I will see if I can figure a new way.

Lloyd Hammond

well it is really not time to go to bed but I am wore out.so I am thinking to hit the hay soon. amazing how doing nothing wares one out.so see you tomorrow.

Lloyd


JaneS

I'm checking out, too.  But not quite ready to go to bed.  I have a couple of things to do yet and then I'm off.

I just had Mickie out for her (I hope) last time and it's snowing pretty good.  So far, it's only laying in the grassy areas but if it keeps up at the rate it's going, we could have some accumulation by morning.  My first thought was that I better get the car under cover and then I realized that it is under cover.  I'm smarter than I thought I was!

Now I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good morning everyone..

Looks like the music will begin for the dance, about 2 inches of fluffy snow this morning and it is still coming down. Will do  chores around the house after the waltz.

Bubble, can use our prayers, she is sick in bed with a cold. Hope you feel better soon Bubble.

Jane, with all that you are doing now, have you figured out just how you found time to work  in the past?

Gloria, snow is falling here and it just may be on its way to you. Must admit we have been so lucky so far. Just wish we could send all the snow/rain to Australia to help put out the fires.

Lloyd, that is your body telling you need rest so please listen to it and don't push yourself. Hope you have a great day today.

Joy and Phyllis, hope you both are keeping well. I know the holidays sure tire one out and it is nice when everything gets back in order.

Better get my dancing duds on...

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning everyone. 26º and Mostly clear Here. I had a better night last night but still tired so am going to try for a few more zzzz's. see you again after while,

Lloyd

JaneS

Good Morning Everyfriend!  We're in "wait" mode for the boinger and it should be going off soon or so Mickie thinks.

We had some accumulation of snow overnight but only in the grassy areas.  It left the roads wet but clear.  I wonder how that happens? 

I slept better last night than I have in a long time.  I was up once and took a Melatonin before going back to bed and it took the alarm at 7 to wake me up.  Now what should I get into today?

AMY, I guess I'd have to be saying "NO" to Frankie more often and not watching a movie when I felt like it if I was still working.  And I think my feet would hurt a lot more because I'd be wearing shoes instead of house slippers.  So far, all that is in my favor!  And when I took Frankie grocery shopping, I wandered around the store and picked up six things I don't need just because I had a gift card to use for them.  It was one of my "countdown to Christmas" envelopes from the kids.  Nice to have things one doesn't really need (like Magnum ice cream bars) and not have to pay for them.

It's almost time for the boinger so...

I wish you all a lovely day!

The dance is done and with some fancy moves thrown in thanks to the ice underneath!

Jane,I don't know who has more fun enjoying your gifts......you certainly but I think we all have had just as much fun also. YES Magnum are thee best!!!

Good morning everyone. Don't expect to see sun again today, snow in the forecast around noon. For me hat  is better than rain.

SANDY  the problem with me is I have no appetite. After breakfast I could go the rest of the day without eating and it wouldn't bother me. I have been bouncing between 80 and 85 pounds and am skinny. Even with the holiday meals I only took what I knew I cold eat and that was not much.

SHIRLEY  I type on notepad and than copy and past in the post box, wait to see if it does post before I delete on the notepad. I save the notepad with the code on it so do not have to worry about forgetting it.

LLOYD  being in the hospital with nothing to do to keep busy is enough to make anyone sleep.

JANE  I thought I was the only  one foretting things lately.

AMY  Australia is really on fire this time. I keep wondering how Junee and her family are doing. They live in Sidney and I have not heard that name mentioned. We will get some snow later and from what I saw it will only be for a few hours.

JANE  like me last Friday at Walmart, it cane p to $136.plus change and the 36 and change is all I paid for. I have one more giftcard for a market for $50 but that will wait awhile, I am still looking for places to put every thing I bought Friday.

Have a good day.

Merry Monday, Everyfriend,

Has anyone used - or know of anyone who has used - "Shipt" or any of the other companies that deliver groceries after shopping on-line?

I'm tempted to try Shipt but 'they' won't let me see details on the web site unless I register.   I'm sure I could cancel if I don't like what I see but would prefer to have someone's comment about using this type of service before I try.

So sorry to learn about Bubble and hope she feels better soon.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

JaneS

Have any of you Instant Pot Aces ever had a "burn" light come on when you were making something?  It really cuts into my confidence and if the rice pudding wasn't so good, I'd probably be tempted to chuck the whole experience.  I let you know what I think after I finish scrubbing the "burn" off the bottom of the pot!  Right now, it's soaking!  And it better all be loose when I get around to scrubbing it.
