Good morning everyone..

Going to be a warm one today. We are off to the cheese and chocolate factory as it has also opened.
Just a quick trip down and back...no fabric shopping :(

Jenny, want some cheese curd?

Gloria, does your son also have raspberries? I will pick strawberries for others to have but look out on the raspberries..those are my favourite!

Jane, twice now I have tucked the pumpkins in and they are doing great. Hope no more frost threats.

Phyllis, we could use rain here and they say Sun Mon is when we will get it. Hope it is a gentle one.

Better get ready..

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe.

good Morning AMY and everyone else that show up, looks from here that AMY and I may be all here so far. it is 66º here and calling for a high of 85º today; hope you all have a day just like you like it to bee.

Still raining here.  Amy, I would be happy to send it on up to you if I could manage that.

Nothing planned today except to make out an online grocery list for David to pick up tomorrow.  I haven't been particularly interested in eating lately so I haven't been interested in cooking.  We don't need much from the grocery store this week.

Jackie, that darned song was in my head all day yesterday!

Take care, All.

Good morning everyone. Slept good last night and woke at 7 this morning. 56 now but looks like the end of this spring temperature. Will get close to 80 this afternoon. AC will be running in here if it gets that hot.

LLOYD  i CAN SEE STAYING INSIDE WHEN IT IS THAT HOT BUT DON'T MAKE NANCY HOLLER. Stop teasing her all the time. You have a group of ladies here who will back up Nancy. We ladies stick together you know :)

AMY  no wonder you were not here early yesterday. Felt like most deserted the SS when I was here.

JANE  I was wondering if you had gone to be with your sister. I know you will both miss your "brother" a lot and many tears will be shed.

PHYLLIS  the woods must really have been dark and mysterious to bring that song to your thoughts. Hate to rub it in but this week so far has been wonderful. Cool nights and not higher than mid to's in the day and low humidity.

ROSEMARY  I never read a Winnie book. My 3 did enjoy the cartoons on TV when they were young.

AMY  had a chuckle about the man getting into your car. After 3 months I be t there was a big difference in his appearance. I remember the picture of your sheds wi th all  tha t wood s tacked up  to  the ceiling. Lots of work doing that in 3 sheds.

JENNY  it is the farm that will not have strawberries, not my son. He justs gets them for me. If there was a food  truck around here I imagine the witch would not allow it on this private property.

AMY  my oldest son had raspberries but my DIL never did anything with them so he got rid of them and now has a garden where they were.

PHYLLIS  glad we are not having all that rain. I would be in trouble with my back. Ben great  with this stretch of low humidity days.

JANE  hope today is better for you and your sister.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfrind!  I'm learning to live with the loss of Jim but I'll always miss him.  It's much harder for my sister.  They were married 65 years in August!  That's going to take some time for her.

Christy is coming from Maryland to be with Frankie while she has the test and waits for the results.  She's also bringing me a fresh-from-the-garden head of lettuce.  I'm going to have a cole slaw and fried cabbage like my grandmother used to make....if I can remember how she made it!

I hope you are all having a lovely day and that it continues through the week.

Good morning. it is being very slow to clear off.  Predicted showers for later.

Jane, I have been missing a couple days, but, I do want to let you know how sorry I was to read about the passing of your "brother".  Sincere sympathy to you and his family. I remember your talking about how he was just like your real brother.......not a brother-in-law. 

Hope all will go well with the procedure that Frankie is having.  Hope she will have a good outcome.

It is still pretty slow going here.  Not getting much done, and still very lazy.  Have a hard time staying awake most days.   But, I have been getting some reading done. 

Hope everyone is just hanging in there the best that they can.   Just wish all this mess would go away.

Have a safe day.

A good Wednesday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND! 

YES, PLEASE, AMY......I would love some cheese curds! Oh how I wish you could😘 I hope you had a good drive and got lots of chocolate and cheese to make Kyle smile!

GLORIA, sometimes I wonder where my brain is.....I knew it is a farm your son gets the strawberries from🤣. Still sad that you won't be getting any. Food trucks are really getting big around here and now almost every community has one once a week.  Nice for those that have missed going out to eat during this Covid time. I am sure you are right....the *itch would not allow one.  I would like to order her a "special" meal that she would not forget for awhile🤪

JANE, happy to read that Christy is going to be with Frankie for the test and the results. 🙏

PHYLLIS, I think it is hard to want to fix food when it is so warm.  We bought a lot of meat and now none of it sounds good to me🤪

Good to see your post, JOY. 

It is going to be another HOT one out there today, so I best get my watering done.

Have a great day.

Gloria I know, don't hit me again I will try to behave, But please rember no fools no fun I do not make a lot of money but I do have a lot of fun. so good night and sweet dreams everyone.

Good morning everyone, looks like the low temperture is over along with the low humidity. Going to 80 at least today. Oh well these last few days I enjoyed it and it is that time of year for hot days and humidity climbs with the temperature. I will enjoy my new AC and having to put a sweater on to keep warm. Running that portable one 24/7 never got it cool enough in here. The witch has said nothing about this one.

JANE  one of my  sisters made fried cabbage with wide noodles. I don't know how she made it but it sure was tasty. Glad Frankie will not be alone with those tests.

JOY  good seeing you here at last. Missed you. You and I are both on a feeling lazy streak. Seems all I want to do is sleep. I think this keeping away from almost everone is getting to me. No one goes out of their  apartments except to go for groceries. Sure glad I have Yvette here for 2 hours 5 days a week.

JENNY  thanks for the chuckle with the *itch, many in here call her that. New people here think she is so nice till they have been here awhile and found our how nice she IS NOT.

LLOYD  like you I like to  tease. Heck if we canno t get  some laughing in every day something is wrong.

AMY and PHYLLIS and ROSEMARY hello when you ge here.

Time for my second cup of coffee.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Morning Gloria and everyone else that show up in a little while. well the tattle tale said I got 5.5 hours of sleep but as i have said before it tells how long i have it on and breathing  air flow through it, but not how long I actual sleep.It is 70º and clear now @ 4:55 AM and going to 88º today here so couch Jockey sounds good to me for today. I have  some pallets and some other lumber laying out in the back yard to build Nancy a raised bed for her flowers and some veggies. she wants to be able to stand up and work it.Have a good day everyone. we have some tomato plants in a flour bed out front and some sun flowers up and going for early fresh lettuce and carets and  tomatoes.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I have my car this morning and I'm going to attempt to get myself to the Hair Salon for a haircut.  There just isn't anyone to take me and since Frankie doesn't need it this morning I'm up.  Wish me luck and if you think about it whisper a little prayer in His ear asking Him to ride along with me.  Its my first outing since the broken arm!

I hope you all have a great day!

Good morning everyone.

Another lovely hot day in the making. We have wood to pile  today..oh boy. :)  If it gets too hot we will leave it till cooler times.
Yesterday was a good haul both at the cheese factory and the chocolate factory...

Jane, please be careful.. prayers headed your way. I am glad Cristy will be with Frankie. Prayers for all to go well.

Gloria, you are right we will side on Nancy's side :))

Lloyd, sending you an email.

Jenny, we sure did stock up as my friend in AZ would say we hit a gonga.....Not knowing when we will get back that way we bought Kyles favourite and I also got some of mine. No curd as they don't have the one we like..garlic and red pepper. We can get that one here at the dairy. :)

Better get a move on.

Enjoy your day everyone...stay safe.

Jane, I know how you must view with some trepidation your first time back driving! It was scary for me, but I didn't go very far, just to the grocery store; 1.2 miles and practically a straight line after I had 2 right turns, one getting out of my street, the other getting on to the straight-line road to store.  It makes you feel so much better when you can get in your car and actually "go somewhere" without having to impose on friends or neighbors. (Do you have a brace on your arm to prevent over-moving the shoulder?) My brace was mostly for the wrist, but it sure kept things safer with the steering wheel in making turns.  Be safe, good luck. I passed my one-year anniversary of the breaks on June lst.  A long haul, but we just keep on keeping on don't we?

My Dad sang many a song with her along with the other soldiers that came to our home.Some with tears in their eyes ...she sang to the hearts of the soldiers . No other entertainer could command them like she did.

What a great lady.

Good morning everyone, 67 already at 3:30am. I was in dreamland by 9 pm last night, no wonder I am here so early.

LLOYD  both my sons have their gardens planted and doing good. Oledest son has more room for his garden and every year tries different tomatoes.  Last year they both kept me supplied with so many tomatoes I made spaghetti sauce and froze it.  Was nice during the winter and so much better than using cans of tomatoes.

JANE  I know you did good dring yesterday and getting your hair cut. I had my DIL cut mine very shrt last time and after a month it is still short enough for me.

TOMEREADER  I had my right shoulder replaced and had plans for the left  one to be done. I had not driven in seemed like years but was aa couple of months. Had my son go with me the first time I drove and could not make a sharp left turn. Bad news. Got  back home and took the keys of my keyring and gave it to him. That was the end of my driving. Still miss the independence it gave me.

AMY  you can keep the cheese but would like some of that chocolate. Wish there was a  factory like that around here. I remember hearing Vera Lynn on the radio back in the 1940's. Beautiful voice.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone.

Going to be a fry day Friday here..with a hint of rain .

We finished piling all the wood yesterday..no the attention can be on the garden. Need to pick up the neighbour this morning and give him a ride home.

Gloria, you can't beat fresh tomatoes for sauce...we only have6 tomato plants in but I can go to a road side farm and buy a bushel to do sauces with.

Jane, today is going to be a difficult one for you and your family...........saying good bye is never easy. Hold tight to all the good memories .

Want to water the garden so better get going.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Stay safe.

Good morning, Amy and Gloria.  You are both early birds this morning. 

I was up a lot earlier than usual, so thought I would say an early good morning.  Of course, nothing exciting happened yet, except for getting my trash out to the trash room.  That is a big job for me, but has to be done.  Just have to walk across the hall and put it in.  Glad I don't have to go any further.  Sometimes, the maintenance man will make two trips to empty it on Fridays, as it can really build up over the weekend. 

Nothing going on, so I will just wish everyone a good day. 

Will be thinking of you, Jane.

Vera Lynn...."White Cliffs of Dover" and "We'll Meet Again", and other beautiful songs.  Oh, yes, I remember her very well.  She sang songs of hope during some really dark times for all of us.

Yesterday was a "lost day" for me so I'm glad to be back even though still not feeling quite tip-top yet.  Still cloudy, humid, with more rain coming (so THEY say.  ugh!).

Take care, All.

Lloyd, yes I did thank you. Sounds like a good plan you have. Just do it on a cooler day.  Another hot one here and I am thankful all the wood is in and piled for this winter. 

Phyllis ,each day is a good day when you are here. We are needing the rain bad here. We are to get 30% chance today then again on Sun ,Tue ,Wed and Thur. I sure hope we at least get rain on one day, blessing if on more than one day .

Good Morning,

Janie, holding you and your family in my thoughts and prayers today.

I'm amazed at how many details of WW2 so many of you remember.  I was in First Grade when Pearl Harbor was bombed and finishing 4th grade when the atom bomb was dropped.  Maybe my lack of memories is due to cousins much older than I being the only family members in the military - and they didn't live anywhere near us.

Looks as if my flower beds may get a double watering today.  I turned on the little sprinklers earlier and now it looks as if it "might" rain.  Radar shows most activity north of here so....who knows?

Tulsa will be in the news all weekend.  At least, it will be a change of subject...kind of.

Off to find something useful to do....

Carol

It is so nice to read all of your posts.  Sometimes I cannot get in here to read daily notes.  Today, I started cleaning some of the many window blinds.  Yuk and more Yuk.  We are making a list for COSTCO and trying to figure out what is a good time - know they have Senior hours but Don is leery of their health.  We have not been there for months. 

We visited the Van Gough museum and also stayed near the apartment where he lived and painted.  I really like the song "Vincent" because it is so different. 

Don needs to go to the VA audiology dept. and they have been closed for a long time.   :(

It is always nice to come in here and check out your happenings - stay safe.   


Amy

Carol, you and Don are like us, we would like to go to Costco and shop but... I do know they are open at 8 for senior and first responders only. We may try on Tue or Wed next week and see if we can get in without a long wait.

A Good Friday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND 🦋

JANE, I have been and will continue to think about you and the family today as you gather together.  🙏🙏

The temperature has dropped nearly twenty degrees the last couple of days and we are to have rain today, but so far just a couple of sprinkles. 

It was sad news yesterday regarding the passing of Vera Lynn.  I did not realize she was still living.  What a wonderful lady for all she did for the moral of the troops🙏.

CAROL, we have found that early afternoon, mid-week is the best time to go to Costco for a time when fewer people are there to shop.  I just went for the first time last week and it sure did feel good to be doing my OWN shopping.  For the most part people do seem to do their very best to avoid getting too close to one another.  It feels rather strange when you go for the first time....kind of like you are doing something wrong🤪🤪🤪

We got to see Jonah and his parents yesterday......my goodness that boy is getting so big.  He is so active, as all 18 month olds are and is he ever trimming down.  He has a boy haircut that his mama gave him and it made him look so much older.  We met in a little park and his mom went over to a little Mexican Restaurant and picked up some carry out for us to eat.  It was their Father's Day Celebration for Bob. 

I wish you all a god rest of your day.

Jenny

JaneS

Hello Everyone!  Thank you all for the prayers and good thoughts.  It was a day of mixed feelings....good to see family members of Margie's that I don't get to see often, good to hug Margie and talk with just her for a few minutes....but the reason for being together wasn't a good one!  I'm trying to remember only the good but it's so hard!  And I'm beat right down to my socks and I'm not wearing any so I think I'll take Mickie out and then hit the sack!  Again, thank you for the thoughts and prayers!

well I know it is late But I an leaving a short bit any How. Nancy had a dental appointment today to have two bad teeth pulled. we got that done and I brought her back to the house then I went and got the meds. for her and a few grocery's. that killed the day. while on the way there and Back it rained very hard. we got home our gauge only showed seven tenth's in our gauge but at least one of the thunder storms we went through must have had more than that. two times it rained so hard you could not see but a short distance ahead ant the wipers on high could not keep the windshield clear. she is happier and feels some better already.see you all later today yesterday slipped away on me. good night and sweet dreams.

JaneS I know it is rough on those of us left at times like this. But rember they are better off than we are. God has a better place for us all, and more of the times the way a lot of people have changed I am more ready to join them up there. good night and sweet dreams.

Good morning everyone, looks like an AC day here. just checked the forecast and going to be 85 yuck, that means the humidity will be high.

AMY  are your wood sheds all full yet? Not a fry day here, more like a boil day. My daughter and SIL will be frying in Arizona, getting close to 100. They work outside eearly and again in the evening. They stay inside most of the sunny part of the day. I realy could live on tomato and lettuce sandwiches as long as fresh tomatoes last.

JOY  you are lucky you just have to go across the hall to get rid of the trash. We have 2 trash bins outsid at the other  end of the building. I cannot even raise the cover on them so my CNA takes it out for me.

LLOYD  good morning, hope you are behavig yourself and not teasing Nancy too much.

PHYLLIS  those we re 2 songs I thought of when Amy mentioned Vera Lynn yesterday. Both sad but uplifting at the same time. We have had a dry spell for more than a week now but rain is in the forecast for the end of next week. If not careful we will be having brush fires around the state.

AMY lawns here will be t urning brown if we don't  get rain soon.

CALLIE  how do you like the new holiday they were talking about on the news yesterday?

CAROL  nice seeing you here this morning, been awhile since you posted here.

JENNY  so glad you got to see Jonah. I have not seen my little one since Christmas. My grandson will call me and I talk to my almost 5 year  old. Better than nothing I guess.

JANE  I know seeeing your family was good but the occasion was a sad one. I am not good at saying what I mean but I was thinking of you and the family.

LLOYD  I was supposed to have some teeth out back in April and still waiting for the dental place I go to open up.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone...
No rain last night and it looks no rain either this morning. Will hang laundry out to tempt  rain as we need it. Other than work about the house   nothing much is planned. If time permits will do more jam but we shall see.

Gloria, all sheds are full.....some with a little space left but not much. Need to take photos yet. I can't wait till fresh tomatoes are ready.. We have 4 plants of big tomatoes and one with sweet millions on it...the tiny ones. You know the kind when you walk by grab a handful and munch on them. :)

Jenny, I remember my sons first haircut. He had curly hair and the barber was kind enough to save me the curls. The Dr are not giving my friend chemo, said that the tumor has only grown a little  since being off the chemo due to Covid-19.

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day everyone..
