well I am late again but good Night and sweet dreams. Hope ti see you all in the morning. In good health and good spirits. Just use good common seance In this crises. Good night.


Lloyd Hammond

Good Morning everyone. 56º and mostly clear here saying we are going to high sixty's or low seventy's today. have a great day just as you like it we hope.



Think I am going to make it, whatever I ate or caught seems to be better this morning, I am actually hungry. Going to fix some bacon & eggs, couple pieces of toast & coffee & go finish my night of sleep. 4 hours & 17 min is not enough for this old lady!

'Morning, Lloyd. Hope Nancy is feeling better. Does she have allergy problems? Mine and everyone I know is suffering something awful this year, feels like I've been hit in the head from top to neck & nose won't quit running. Give her a hug for me.....

Wishing all a "Thuper Thursday"... or is that Terrific Thursday, Callie?  Right now it is 60° & supposed to get to upper 60°  today, yesterday was the 70s & I had to pull out some cooler slacks. Goodness, this is changing way too fast, the whole world is mixed up! Have a HAPPY! :walkwhistle:


Good morning everyone, 31 but feels like 25. comfortable inside  so will be another day of being inside. No rain in forecast till Sunday now.

PHYLLIS  when I was quite young I remember waking to the smell of the dough rising and not much later the bread baking. My son gets my eggs right from a farm so always get them. I have not been into a store in about 6 months or more so have no idea of what they look like now. I used to love baking. Loved making pies and cookies rather than cakes, they were too easy. I remember ruring WW2 my Mom make that vinegar cake. She always managed to make some kind of dessert on Sunday. Seems like we always talk about food here. What better?

LLOYD  if all we did now was worry about this new virus we would really stay in our homes and hope our food supply lasts till it  is over.

JANE  the way I heard it  was Smile and the whole world smiles with you, cry and you cry alone. What always got to me is those who do nothing but complain, glad we have none of those complainers here.

JOY  you will be in heaven when you get back into your own home. Nothing like it. So far people can still come in here.

SHIRLEY  I think you would fing a song in everything. Love it.

LLOYD  y ou were the last one last night and the first one this morning.

SHIRLEY  you sneaked in on me.

Have a good day and stay safe.

I slept late this morning so I'm slow to catch up on everything.  So glad to hear your good news, Joy.  Home is always better.  Take extra care and enjoy it.

I made the Depression Cake yesterday and it is sooooo good.  I had forgotten how much I like it.  I'll keep that recipe close at hand.

I made out my grocery list to pick up at curbside and the earliest date we can pick it up is next Sunday because so many are ordering online for pickup or delivery right now.  Luckily we have enough supplies around here that we can tolerate the wait time provided we can make a few substitutions.  The dish washing detergent is low so we may have to do some hand washing before we can get some more deterg. I don't think washing a few dishes by hand will do me any lasting harm.  ;D

I read online that so many people are baking bread at home during this crisis that there is danger that the supplies of flour and yeast will run out.  Maybe true or maybe not.  It is a different world we are dealing with right now but we'll manage.

Take care and stay well, All.


I am trying to figure out if I can post something in "General Discussions".  I looked there, but found no place to "post message".  Is that forum closed?


Hello all!  Yes, we had weather driving through southern Colorado - winds shaking the car just like an elephant would push us. 

Jenny: We left Santa Fe (almost no sleep that night because of a party or construction going on upstairs.  We drove north on 285 - instead of I-25.  It was wonderful, maybe one truck and barely any cars.  It is longer that way but well worth the fantastic scenery.   

Two of the boys had taken care of our house and they had even bought groceries.  They did not know we were able to get a couple of basics at two small towns.  No panic in those towns.

Callie:  Love your electric blanket story! 

Stay safe - I am grateful for this site so we can stay together.

I have to admit I honestly had a melt down early last evening after loosing a rather detailed post😩 I of course did not keep saving it as I went along, and it was nearly done and something came across my screen and I clicked on it.....tried to go back to the post and it was no where to be found😤😤. My own stupidity......but it was the straw that broke the camels back😡.

CAROL, so good to read that you are home and the boys had things ready for you👍.

JOY, happy to read you are going home...that is wonderful news. 

SHIRLEY, somehow I missed that you were feeling a bit under the weather, but I am happy to read you are feeling better❣️

AMY, I did enjoy THINGS GET BETTER WITH AGE.  Thank you so much for sharing.

I am going to post this......have a good rest of your day.



Glad you are home, Carol... So nice when the kids do something thoughtful like that.  :smitten:

Jenny, I hold my breath with every post from you, concerned about your father & Michele... how much more stressful in times like this, when you have to worry about carrying germs to visit them. Hugs for you & all the family.

Phyllis, not long after Cas died I quit using the dish washer, got a white drainer & just wash & leave in the drainer & never have them stack up. For some reason it seems easier/quicker.

Didn't realize it was so late, got to get out & break down some boxes to put in the dumpster & push it to the street. Where did the week go?

Gloria, I got out today & went to Sam's Club... got my hamburger & bottled water & did NOT look for TP, thought I'd settle for 2 out of 3 and not be disappointed.  ;D   At both water & meat the workers were surprised that I only took one of each, so I explained I wasn't hoarding and would be back next week! This can't go on forever, right? 



Just talked with Janes daughter and she told me that Jane fell this morning and broke her shoulder. Please take a moment and say a prayer for her..

Oh, NO, Jane.... prayers, hugs and more prayers. Lousy time to need to go to the hospital. I know the kids will rally around you so in good hands and we'll all be here waiting for more news. 

Thanks for letting us know, Amy.


I was checking on "new messages" and am so so sorry to read about Jane.

Dear sweet Janie, I join Shirley and everyone else to send prayers and loving wishes for your speedy recovery. 



Depending on where/how bad the shoulder is broken, they can't cast that.  Now if she has surgery on it, that is a different matter.  Mine was broken last June 1st.
Recovery is a real pill.  Was it her dominant side shoulder?  She has my sincere wishes that she can recover quickly.  My orthopedic told me up to a year, even with P.T. which I am still doing (when they let us out from this shelter at home). Also broken at the time was my wrist, which gives me the most trouble. Not a good range-of-motion in the shoulder yet, but good enough to do all the basic stuff, shower, shampoo, cook, dress myself. Please Jane, get well soon.


I just came in to say GOODNIGHT and I read the terrible news about your mishap, JANE.  I am so sorry to read this and I hope you are resting comfortably tonight.....I sure hate to think about you being in a hospital, so I hope and pray you are not🙏🙏🙏

Thank you, AMY, for sharing the news with us so we can keep JANE in our thoughts and prayers🦋

Sweet dreams to all.

Jane is at home at this time and will talk to Drs via phone today. She is well looked after with her family taking shifts to see that she is comfortable and watched over.She will  appreciate all the prayers.

Good morning everyone..

Jane, I hope you found a comfortable spot to get some sleep.

Will be doing some sewing today after I get the laundry put away.

Should put a pot of chicken soup on  and figure out what to have for supper.

Shirley , is Sam's club the same as Costco?

Gloria, thinking of how well your CNA has your pantry stocked and  little did everyone know just how important it is now.

Joy, hope you are in your own home now .

Phyliss ,stay in away from the virus.

Lloyd, hope you and Nancy are well.

Better move it.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

JANE, I am so sorry.  Prayers for you and let your family take care of you.  Glad you can stay at home and not have to go to the hospital or any where else.

We are under Stay at Home orders here starting this afternoon.  That won't be different for me since I've been staying home all along.  David has been taking his daily walks but he is careful to maintain a distance and he will still be able to do that under the order.  People are adapting as well as possible.

At least we had some sun yesterday afternoon and that helped lift the spirits.

Take care, All.


Good morning everyone, wow I got 9 hours sleep last night, was shocked when I woke and it was light out and when I saw the clock to see it was almost 8:30. I did stay up later last night hoping I would wake later than 3 or 4am.
Heard on the news last night that the governor wants stores to limit the number of people going in at one time in order to keep their 6 foot distance.

AMY  hope you got what you needed in the stores yesterday. On local TV they showed some of the markets with bare shelves. Seems like even the trucks are late getting to the markets with supplies. 

PHYLLIS  in some way with this shortage of supplies it reminds me of the rationing in WW2. We needed those stamps/chips or what they were to buy most every thing. Cannot remember the right word for those things now.

CAROL  glad you made it to Denver OK. I envy yo u the scenery you saw. Ask Jenny, I never traveled much outside of the New England states and scenery is something I love. Mountains or desert I love all of it.

JENNY  love your new avatar. Your litte sweety is so adorable.

SHIRLEY  if everyone shopped for just what is needed we would not be having a shortage of TP or anything else. I know I replace something before I run out but never stock up on anything.

AMY  poor Jane. Things were going so good for her lately and now this. I will add extra prayers for her.

JANE  if you can get here to read, I pay it is not a bad break and will heal fast with no problems after. HUGS  and prayers to you.

AMY  I know her family will make sure she is looked after.  She raised her family with love and they all love her. MY CNA is a coupon queen. She uses coupons when things are on sale and she has a well stocked home. Her sister an her son never run out of anything because she has it. She has saved me money using her coupons for some things I need. Not that she is a hoarder but she loves to shop and save money

PHYLLIS  so far they have not stopped anyone from coming into this building and most everyone is staying in their apartments. Today I just might go out for a walk but there will be none outside enjoying the warmer sunny day.

Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

Mary Ann

Jane, I am so sorry to read about  your fall and broken shoulder.  I am so afraid I will  fall some day.  I know your family will give you TLC.  Even with a walker, I want to go from grab bar to grab bar to prevent a fall and it isn't easy.

Mary Ann


Good morning .   Oh, I am so sorry to hear this news about Jane !I sure hope it will be a quick recovery.  I know her family will be there for her.  Will certainly have her on my prayer list. I just had my last PT session for here.  I will have people come to the house for a while.  People can still get into my building.   My DIL already got my grocerys.  Some ready
to eat meals. I will be ok !   Can't wait to get back to my computer.   I'm sure I will have tons of emails to get rid of.  Again,  thinking of you,  Jane. 😢        (from. Joy)

I had a long post earlier & "blew it".... got busy explaining how pretty it was with fog and the trees blooming and lookng so eeri.... got side tracked & away it went.

Amy, Sam's Club is like Costco as "membership". Sam's used to brag their goods was Made in America, when Sam Walton was alive. No more, everything from China. It is the "Papa" of Walmart stores, have to buy bulk & a tad cheaper.

I got out to fill my car with gas.... would you believe with my dollar off I paid 69¢ a gallon? My son came over to fill his, since you get up to 35 gallons.... we just park on each side of the pump & pass through. Everyone takes advantage when it's that big of a "gift". Came home & put together a big box of arts & crafts books... had bought at a garage sale next door, those expensive ones for $35-$50 that had been her mother's & never looked at. My daughter is going a little stir crazy with keeping her distance & her husband working from home part time. Husband is a priority type that is allowed to go in when needed. Since she retired last year she has been a buzzing pink bunny and loveing being retired, does a lot of shopping, killing her to keep the 6' away. She sent me a couple care packages this week, with TP & Hunts Spaghetti sauce (couldn't find around here)... Clorox wipes, sanitizer, etc... these books should keep her busy through Christmas! ;)

Joy, I'm anxious for you to get back home & know you will do fine. Mary Ann, has Kendrick finally decided you are okay?  These cats are so funny. All three of these have been protesting their food (how many ferals get Chicken of the Sea tuna or salmon for breakfast, canned chicken breast or raw angus hamburger mid afternoon, half a can of Friskies canned food before bed, and all day the "Indoor Delight" Friskies dry food).... I was out of raw hamburger for a few days so they turned their noses up at everything! Seriously, would go to their dish & put nose in air & walk off..... Got them fresh hamburger yesterday and they all are eating everything just fine. Is that not spoiled.. going on a hunger strike!!!

Gloria, I had my bedroom to myself last night and think I had a full 6 hours, will double check later.... that's how I lost my post this morning. But, I can hardly keep my eyes open so am off for a few zzzzzzzzzzzzs while I have a chance. would like to turn off phones but the kids would send paramedics.... I've been getting call after call from the same robo... about insurance. I know they are picking on me bacause I used the little personal alarm in the speaker end of the phone... no human but someone listens to see what the response is.... calls with same recording from all over the US, at least 3 or 4 every day. Last few I've been saying, "this call is being traced to turn over to the District Attorney"... but they are too smart. Would love to send a virus through the wire/air to who ever is on the other end! They wake me as soon as I am sound asleep. 7 or 8 phones in the house & not all have caller ID.

Janie, hugs & prayers, are the kids playing nice?

Lloyd Hammond

AMY while we were visiting on the phone our internet came back on that is good Nancy and I both enjoyed the visit very much. Please do not spread the bad of me Nancy told you.
( here is a good quote to use everyone)
( there is so much good in the worst of us)
( somuch bad in the worst of us)
it behooves those left to talk about the rest of us)
But we do anyway. our prayers are for all of us that need them.
Have a great day.


Lloyd Hammond

Shirley I think you and I are two peas in same pod. we both love loving and teasing.put us both in a sack shake it up debates who would get out first.
Keep on living and loving is my motto. Have a great day just as you like it.



Shirley, thank you for 'splaining that to me. I do know that there is no way we will be going to Costco anytime soon.

Lloyd, I thoroughly enjoyed talking with both Nancy and you!! You are such a special couple. Please take good care of each other.

Good Afternoon from
the sunny but empty streets of
Portland Maine.    WOW!

I am so sorry to hear that
Jane  has fallen and broken her
shoulder..  oh dear, how
awful...  I wish you well
Jane,  with a quick recovery.. 

I am working around trying
to get my apartment de cluttered
and re organized.  Not easy to do
but each day I am working at

I love the way I moved my
bed over to near my office and now
have a table off the kitchen
to use once I get it cleared of
all the clutter that I am

You know the old saying, 
"a place for everything and
everything in its place?" 

Well I have 10 places for
everything and never can find
only one place to put "what ever"

I am working on this and
it ain't easy.. 

So that is my day..
Best wishes to everyone and
hope no one comes down
with Covid-19.   

Fingers crossed.

Twenty years from now,
you will be more; disappointed
by the things; you didn;t do
than by the ones that you did.

So throw off the;  bowlines.
Sail away from safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your; sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
(Mark Twain)
