Good morning everyone, still raining here. My DIL is coming here in about 1 1/2 hours to cut my hair. Yipee. Last time she cut it was New Years day.

JANE  glad  the pain pill helped you get to sleep. I had a good one last night, woke after 7 today instead of the middle of the night.

AMY  I do OK walking or driving but get me into a big building like a hospital I get lost, no sense of direction inside. When I first moved here I kept turning the wrong side offf the elevator up here and on the ground floor, too. There has been 10 deaths so far from 1 nursing home and they are trying to find the one who brought it  into the building. Now they have it on lock down when it is too late. Now all nursing homes around will allow no one in.

SHIRLEY  the last phone I had was a dial one and had to get one with buttons on it because we now have to push so many things on the phones. I still rather talk to a person. My son was laid off and will be collecting uneployment. He hope so get back to work and take his vacation time before he retires in .July. He is already well over 67. So sorry about your BIL, prayers the doctors can help him.

CALLIE  LOOKS like I should get some Clorax if there is any to be found.

AMY  your special post for today is so true. No one was ever pro‪mised more than today.

PHYLLIS  seems I cannot remember the last time we had a blue sky and a night clear enough to see stars.

Better get  ready for my DIL, still in my nighty and robe.

Have a good day and stay safe.

I'm still working on getting these phones up & running. My daughter is supposed to figure how to look at & tell me what next. I plugged in the answering machine one and one other but have NOT unplugged any existing one except the one where I put the answering machine part... it had a phone jack to it. I never understood why, but only the old wall type phones had to plug into the jacks & the one with the answering machine. The other 5 portable ones just plug into outlet to keep batteries charged. Right now I think there is 12 phones working, certainly don't need that many, but afraid to disconnect and mess up the circuit! What do I know, hate these things and do not understand directions because they use words I don't understand! 

Cats fed but didn't want their supper (canned chicken breast)... think I'll go sit in the corner and eat worms... remember that expression from long ago?

CallieOK earlier today I was trying to post and teas you and JaneS and this computer kept dropping my post before i could post it. so I gave up and went and watched some good T V and took a nap also.I decided i wasn't to tease today. But that song sure dose not fit you sweet little Ladies. I have gave my self my shot,and going to bed now with a clear concuss. Good night and sweet dreams one and all.

Good morning everyone, another 4 hours sleep again. Yesterday I woke at 7 and felt great all day.  My DIL came here yesterday and cut my hair. She knew I needed it but these crazy times I hated to ask her. Nice and short once again. Rain finally stopped and we had a few minutes of sunshine.

CALLIE  those jeans- as bad as being so tired you did not realize till you woke and wondered why the nighty was at my throat and I didn;t know why, I had put it on backwords. Only a dummy like me could do that.

SHIRLEY  one phone is enough for me and I hate it when it rings but I let the machine take it. If I want to talk to the person I will pick it up otherwise I ignore it. The way we said that is going to the gar den eating worms. Yuck even at the thought. YES we are SWEET LITTLE OLD LADIES :)

JANE see you remember that one, too.

Gosh thought there would be at least one person here before me this morning. Oh well just talking to myself once again.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Morning everyone.  Gloria at least you put them on. this computer has started off this morning like it did yesterday, dumping me. it is 42º and mostly cloudy this morning saying just going to middle 50's. i was going to say that Janes has only two hand two ears and one mouth so why dose she need so many phones. if they are hard wired? one by the throne and one by kitchen and living room aria should be enough. Gloria It is alright you talk to your self as long as you do not ask the question and answer it both they tell me. Have a great day. Nancy has a link that brings our preacher on the internet,so we can get his sermon Live even tho we are not having the church bodies there now because of the virus. I think he dose his sermon @  9:20 central standard time.
This link should get it if you would like to here it and not get out among the Masses. we used it last Sunday in the comfort of our living room and going do it again today.beats not worshiping.this fowling is the link if you would like to try it (www.ncc,burg.com ) Have a great day.

Good morning everyone...

Cloudy morning here with the threat of rain. A day of welcomed rest today.
My friend came yesterday to pick up their supplies that we got for them. She was excited as it was the first time in 3 weeks that she had been out in the car.She also gave me a package that got me so excited...containing elastics.  I even learnt something new yesterday, never knew there was elastic ric rack. I had used the regular ric rack before but this was new to me.

Gloria, I guess we will remain  shaggy dogs until the shops open here.

Callie, Shirley  and Jane ,trying going on a bus trip packed with Beavers and Girls Scouts that sang a lot of these song. Fun times though.

Lloyd and Nancy, have a great day today.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Stay safe..

Sure, I get up and the birds quit hollering..

Wishing Every Friend a beautiful Palm Sunday. It is overcast, cloudy, not sure if a little fog as well, not a bright, sunshiny day in Wichita, KS. Isn't it funny that thinking back during the days of WWII, I don't remember the rainy days, just the thought of "was this the day the bombers really did come to blow up the base 20 miles away and maybe miss their target?" I don't remember weather ever being an issue, do you? I didn't dwell on worrying long, it was my job to make people happy, so I thought. The world today seems as frantic, distraught, fearful, sad.... as during those war years. I wonder what my great grands are thinking these days, with their parents working from home and the underlying stress / tension of not being free to mingle with friends. I know the little ones are doing "face time" with friends and family, but not like laying on the grass giggling and watching clouds roll by. SO, here is a germ free, cyber hug & kiss to each and every person looking in.  :kiss2:  :wave:

Joy

Good morning.  I made myself get up this morning. Yesterday was a very lazy day and I did absolutely nothing.

A Special good morning to you, Gloria, Shirley, Jane and Amy, who are so loyal everyday.  "The Sweet Little  Old Ladies"  LOL   ( can't forger Lloyd, but he didn't fit in that same category)

Jane. The only Girl Scout song I remember is "Climbing Jacob's Ladder".  Our leader used to sing the Alto part and it was so pretty.

So, hopefully, I will feel better today.  I want to make sure I get my "walking the halls" today.  Tomorrow, I will have a PT come in and will have more exercises to do.   I need to build up my strength.

It is a pretty sunny day, but still a little chilly.

I better get myself moving or I will wind up sitting here too long.

Have a great day.

Joy

CallieOK

Good Morning,

I remember singing all sorts of silly songs at summer camps.  "99 Bottles of Beer On The Wall" and the State Song in which one side asked the question and the other side answered were favorites.  Example of latter:

Where has Ore -gon?
She's seeing Oklahome"

What did Iowa (pronounced "way")?
She weighed a Washington.

My church is streaming the Palm Sunday church live on Facebook.  Only the pastor and a few musicians will actually be in the sanctuary.  We received the Order of Worship in an e-mail so we have the responses and prayers.

Enjoy a blessed Sunday, Everyfriend.

Shirley

Joy, my in town friend & I were discussing the fact we both need to "build up our strength". She really does it & I only think about it. I really do believe these in between seasons are hard to get motivated, like we are in waiting mode. Can't put away winter clothes but know it is about time, and have to drag out a jacket or fuzzy bathrobe to be comfy in the mornings. Ah, guess we had more important things to think about years ago, right?  Like getting breakfast on the table so everyone could get to school/work on time.

I went to my church, "they" had palms for everyone that wanted to come by & pick up, so I got out of the car & went in to talk to God a few minutes. My son & wife were there, alone in the pews. Few men in the back keeping the supply of palms ready for anyone that came by. All were wearing gloves & masks... The service was taped so will see if I can find on the computer.

I needed to get milk, what was left in the bottle I poured around the rose bush. Somewhere I read that milk was a good fertilizer & don't think it mattered it was a little out of date.  ;)

Amy, now that you mention it, long time ago I had a package of stretchy ric rack. I have so much "stuff" from projects long ago, one of these days I will find someone close that would enjoy a box full of this & that. I "don't do nuthin" anymore.  :-[ 

Lloyd, good you are staying inside a little more, sure don't want to go to a hospital these days, might have to take your own hand sanitizer and TP.... :2funny:

Behave, Shirley.... maybe take a nap? 

Gloria, I didn't get much sleep last night but a lot less the night before. My sister-in-law called about 9:00 pm and we talked until nearly 2:00 am. She is the one whose husband (my brother) just died and just needed to think out loud. We were both so surprised when we discovered what time it was. I think my body has adjusted to crazy hours to eat & sleep. I got some Lil' Debbie donuts at the store while ago so a cup of coffee & donuts should put me down for an hour or so.

Yep, Callie, those 99 bottles took a long time to fall off, didn't they? It does NOT look like spring this morning. Going to be mixed weather this week, not looking forward to the storms, hardly recovered from last year damage.

My favorite Girl Scout song, when I co-led a troop, was "Strut Miss Lucy".  The girls would get so animated in their strutting!

Amy

Meet me by the fence took on a new meaning today. My neighbour and I would meet at the fence to discuss  how the day went or exchange goodies we have baked. Today we both left with tears in our eyes...her mother in law passed away. A remarkable lady  ,small in stature but oh my she could make the world jump. She came back to live in a place she had worked for years, teaching the new ones there on how it was done in her day. Her husband of many year proceeded her and I am sure they are now in each others arms. There will be a bright star in the sky tonight and you can bet she will have His house in order. Meet me at the fence..

Aw, Amy, I had tears in my eyes reading your post. Hurts to lose someone so dear, even when we tell ourselves THEY are in a better place. I'm sure your neighbor appreciated your caring with her.

My DIL just sent a text to 9 of our group, with photo of the masks she made today. She is very neat in anything she does, so is getting requests for the ones she offered as well as "can we order more?"

A HAPPY AND BLESSED PALM SUNDAY TO EVERYFRIEND


It sure does not feel like Palm Sunday.......very strange to not be able to go to church....and just wait until next week.....EASTER......no sunrise services as we know them, no church and family gatherings😢

We are enjoying a beautiful day.....70 degrees with all of the windows wide open, airing out our main floor as well as our basement 🦋🦋🦋

JANE, how exciting to read the new bundle of joy will be a little boy.  I am so very happy for you and the family.  Nothing better than a new little baby to look forward to🥰

We have been FaceTime'ing with family......we are so blessed to be able to do this.  Goodness, we have not seen any of our family in over a month or longer😩😢

Thank you, AMY. I always enjoy the things that you post for us to enjoy.  Yes, tell your loved ones how much you love them every chance you can as none of us ever know when it may be our last one and also, I want each of you to know that you all are very special to me as well and I even 💕 you as my special friends❣️

Feeling sad for all of the people loosing their jobs ...... salaries being cut for many that are still working like doctors and nurses.  Everyone.....EVERYONE is hurting in one way or another and sadly it is going to get so much worse before we ca; even hope to see it get better.  In our lifetime, I doubt that we will ever see things get back to the way they were just a month ago......my wish is that we ALL will learn from this..... and start showing more compassion for one another🙏💕🙏💕

You all take care and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Jenny

Lloyd:  I laughed out loud re. your being old and happy.

We get a lot of calls normally from our children and they are doing their best to check on us.  Daughter & family came to visit - standing by the sidewalk and chatting.  It sure was nice to see them.  Later, youngest son and wife stopped by and stood almost in the little street and chatted from there.  The new way to visit.  She is a teacher and is classes are online now.  She misses the children. 

Our oldest grandson's school is not having any ceremony and he is home from Minnesota taking class online.  No graduation party either. 

We shop for groceries online and drive down to the parking spot to have them put bags in the trunk.  I made a mistake today and had a huge double load of groceries because I should have deleted my previous order.  So embarrassing & I hope no one thought I was a hoarder.   :crazy2: I cannot find yeast for baking bread.  Shelves are empty. 

This too shall pass.   

Lloyd Hammond

good night everyone.time past again and it is a little late but good and sweet dreams everyone. Carol it is good i put a smile on your face.that is one thing you can keep for your self and give to everyone you see. but do not laugh too hard you will get old some day your self and will figure out what i am saying 82 years and a toolder have in common with each other, we have a great grand son that takes me by one finger and points where he wants to go,he is not a year old yet, just walking good , but fast.
(I love it) good night I have to go give myself my shot and take other med's. and get to bed.

Update about Mary Ann

I was told that Tom Tock wrote a message on FaceBook : he was looking for an aide for Mary Ann  at night because if she goes to a care home she will be in lock down and he is unwilling to do that and not be able to see her at this time.

Gloria

Good morning everyone,  supposed to be sunny today so might make it out for fresh air. If it gets sunny and warmer maybe a few others will get out, too.

LLOYD  we have church on TV every Sunday here. I know several who miss being in a church but in this virus mess it is best to stay inside and away from others. 

AMY  in these times it is odd not getting new palms yesterday. Hard to believe next Sunday is Easter Sunday. I always enjoyed the sound of Whip o Wills at night untill the night one woke me in a tree outside of an open window.  I finally got up and shut the window and it flew away.

JANE  I had my first pill and my coffee so now my tummy says "feed me" Not usual for me to be hungry this early 5am.

SHIRLEY  my son was here 3 times and never got close to me, my DIL was here Saturday morning to cut my hair but no hugs from her either. Sad world we are living in when we are afraid to touch anyone.

JOY  for me week ends are lazy. No CNA to get me going. The only song I remember from the Brownie and girl scout days is Make new friend but keep the old.

JENNY  my grandson sent me an email the other day with a picture of his son to cheer me up. My great grans had a big smile on his face. He is a little ham when someone takes his picture. At Christmas he sent me a video clip with him opening his gifts from Santa at home and I was also at my son's on Christmas day and he was so ute handing everyone their gifts before opening his.

CAROL  my CNA has been getting my groceries for me. Shw wears gloves and a mask to go to the market. She wears them coming in here, too. She takes both off when she is in my apartment. She is always wiping things down with wipes.

BUBBLE  thanks for the message from Tom. I am so glad the CNAs are still working here. Without her help 5 days a week I don't know what I would do. Hope he finds someone to help Mary Ann.

Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

Good morning everyone..

A lovely day here in the making...think the rain decided to go where it was needed.

Picking up yeast to and cinnamon along with more milk. Seems the neighbour liked the bread they got and asked when I was making more. Will get that done and maybe some cinnamon buns for them also. We will be looking after the neighbours dog and cat beside us while they go make funeral arrangement  for his Mom. Then back to sewing after that.

Gloria, I have only heard one Whip Poor Will in my life time.. I am so waiting on the Loons to come back,to me that is Spring .
Shirley, I agree she is in a better place.Sent you an email.

Jenny, this long distance love is no fun for sure but at least in these modern times one can chat on phone/Skype and catch up on Facebook.I just told a friend the other day as the gas station when all this is over with I have a lot of hugs to give and collect!!

Carol, you are all set for food for a while now. I have been picking up yeast for friends that shouldn't go out and imagine it too will be scare in a bit.

Lloyd and Nancy good morning. Lloyd, remember the fellow I said was like you? Well that is where the bread is going later today.

Jane,  hope your arm is giving you less pain each day....and if you hear it say knit one...purl two you know it is knitting.

Joy ,happy to read you are enjoying home.

Phyliss, enjoy your day.Are you cooking up a storm today? I know I have been trying different recipes....some are keeper and others are......well hubby is very patient with me. :)

Better get moving here.

Enjoy your day to the fullest and stay safe.

I'm up but not awake.  I guess I need another cup of coffee but the supply is getting short so perhaps I'll wait.  David will go out to pick up a grocery order this afternoon and I hope that I can get all of the things that I ordered but don't expect that I will. 

The only cooking I did yesterday, Amy, was to make a meatloaf for our dinner.  I decided to take a day of rest and only read about cooking rather than actually doing it.

Laundry today, as usual.  Stay well, All.
