Saying good morning..

Have a grocery list from my friend that will be picked up when we go into town for 7 am. A quick in and out getting her items and home. Expecting a call from the specialist this morning around 10 so will stick close to the phone.

Jenny, we haven't hear a word on it.......hopefully soon though.

Gloria, eating yogurt helps when taking antibiotics.

Phyllis , the news is so depressing that you want to turn off but look anyway.

Lloyd, how are you and Nancy doing?

Got to cut this short, can't show up in my night clothes to shop. (although I think some do)

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone. ok JaneS what did your picture look like that fixed the headaches? I still have them almost Daley, and the just solely ware off during the day. so we are on the same act now. Have a good day. we had a good day yesterday, we took Nancy to her doctor for a scheduled appointment, and after met one of my deceased brother's daughter's and had noon meal with her our treat. I think we all do not stay in tune good enough with kin or friend's. see you all Later. we all need to put and keep on a big smile. some one told once a point of time, smile and the whole world smiles with you. you can give a smile and keep it at the same time.


Lloyd Hammond

AMY we are doing good for old ackey people, the usual aces and pains in neck and shoulder's. you sure a good neighbor wish you lived closer friend.



Good morning everyone. Yvette did not make it yesterday, had car trouble so not much done for a back massage with Hemvana. Hope she is here today, I sure miss her when she is not here. Another gray morning here, guess that is normal at this time of year but wish there was some snow on the ground to make it brighter.

JENNY  no one could get me to watch a football or baseball game. Last time I watched a hockey game was in the Olympics when the US team beat the Russian team. Rather watch a good movie.

JANE  odd you were talking about your migranes and on TV they were talking about using Botox for them. Don't think I would like Botox for anything.

AMY  firs t time I wwent into stores with my daughter in San Diego I was shocked at the way some were dressed. Took awhile but even going to church seeing the way some dressed I was so shocked, no respect for our  Lord.

We were told here that when the vaccine is ready we will get the shots right in here down in the community room, I like that, we get the flu shots here, too. One thing nice about living in senior housing.

LLOYD  a smile is much better than a frown on a face.

I must be here early this morning, not many around and no Shirley either.

Have a good day and s tay healthy.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  It's 21º here right now and it was below 20 overnight.  That's brrrrrr cold for this area.

LLOYD, I don't know any way to draw a picture and post it here but I'll think about that.  I could just mail it to you.  All I need to do is take 2 Alleve and I can nip them in the bud.  It's been working for me for about 5 years now.

It's almost time for the boinger so I'll have to cut this one short.  But I wanted to tell you all that having worked 28 years at WalMart, I've seen lots of people shopping in their night clothes but the one that took the cake fro me was the lady in red and blue flannel pajamas weare a green unbuttoned sweater over them and green fuzzy flip flop slipper on her feet.  She obviously had nothing on under the pajamas and she was a very LARGE lady! 

There goes the boinger!  If Annie was still here, I wouldn't be able to hold off for even a minute but Mickie can't hear it.  We're getting Cooper again this morning and I'm not dressed yet so I better get this day started.

I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Good morning, nothing new here, we're still skirting zero, and there are few cars on the roads. My morning call, text, and message each day is the only link to my local friends. When this is over, and the major lockdown eased, everyone has been talking about one big blowout party that will have us all comatose for days after.

I know more cars are in the outlying areas where the malls and stores are. The ethnic groceries are all closed, and only the mall groceries, Safeway, the one Walmart, and the two Kroger Fred Meyers open for necessities and groceries. For a city of 100,000 souls, you'd think there would be more crowds, but everything is locked up or gone away.

They started giving shots for those sixty-five and over yesterday, but I've yet to make an appointment. I don't know where, other than clinics or health centers, where they'll administer the vaccines. I know the hospital is out as they're slammed with the virus. There is so little information given out locally, and since all my news is computer generated, I don't know that much on local news.


Good Evening Everyone!

The weather here on the rocky coast of
Maine has been very milk compared to
past Winters.

Of course,  I spend most of my time
indoors, watching tv, and planning my
grocery orders to put into my local
grocery so that Kelly can pick it up and
delivery it to me (usually on Wednesday
around noon) .. trying to build up a
supply of food so that if someone gets
sick in the family, they can stay away
from me... until I get my Covid shot... 
Being 77 I should be getting it pretty soon
as they are moving up  who gets the shots...

Hopefully these shots will prevent me
from get the Covid Virus... then the rest
of the family can start to relax a bit. 

I am really proud of my kids and Grand kids
for trying to stay safe... by washing their hands and
wearing their masks..

I have been using all this free time
to clear out my back room and make it
into my bedroom, instead of a store
room as it  has been for years. 

It took me a long time to get things
straightened out enough to be able
to make it a nice comfortable warmer
room for me. 

My living room
(where I use to sleep)  is still being
used as my office space and has a
comfortable roll away bed for any
one else who might need it.

Never know when that might come
in handy ..  One of my grand
daughters is in nursing school,
right down the street...

My eyes are glued to the tv
because of the horror of all the
carnage going on in DC plus
all that is planned  during the
next week until President Biden
and VP Harris take their office.. 

Between Covid and the Transfer
of Power going on,  and the
insurrection by  criminals terrorizing.
I am very anxious of what the next
couple of weeks will be...

Moving my Bed to the back bedroom
makes me feel safe now,  because
my front room is right on the corner
of two main streets in Portland. 

My bedroom is now a good place for me
to hide if things get rough.
Only one small window,  not
three gigantic ones (each being
4 feet by  9 feet...  (lots of

Bless everyone and stay safe and if
you can,  stay Covid free!

Everybody's been saying they've passed their medical at the doctors, and that they're feeling pretty good, but golly, nobody's been posting anything really.  I can understand busy, but we have a need for updates.  We tend to miss folks that don't show up regularly.  LOL. So,Jane, Gloria, Patricia, Lloyd, and all those we haven't heard from lately (I know a lot of you posted yesterday), stand up tall and call out "here" or "present".  Or, like my daughter texts me "K", for okay. Can't have anyone going AWOL here at Seniors&Friends.  :missyou:


TOMEREADER, I posted at 8 o'clock this morning and that's since your last post.  How could you have missed me?

SANDY, nice to see you're doing well.  Isn't it nice to have our daughter's bring the groceries.  Mine asks for my list whenever she's planning to go to the store.  I email it to her and then she drops stuff off on her way home. 

Today was a good day.  I got a lot done and I don't feel worn out.  I was going to make a trip to Davy's (the Mennonite store) but Cooper didn't come over to sit with Mickie while I was gone so I did other stuff.

It's really hard to see Mavis's house out my windows and every time I walk the dogs.  I really miss her!  It's going to be a while before I can shake this feeling but I'm really trying to remember all the good times we had.  I talked with her son today and he said they are getting notes and phone calls from lots of people that she has been friends with through her church and her work and he is amazed and how many there are!

I'm heading for the haystack now and I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free, get-well tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

well I let time slip by again. past a good time to post and say good night.
but good night and sweet dreams everyone. hope to see you all in the morning everyone.



Yes, Jane, according to what is on my screen you posted "yesterday" at 1:04:24 PM.  The time discrepancy is very confusing. So you are forgiven, and I apologize.Your last message showed:  Today at 03:53:04 AM#158
TOMEREADER, I posted at 8 o'clock this morning and that's since your last post.  How could you have missed me?


Good morning.
We did get a bit of snow last evening but I don't think it is enough to worry about. Will know better come light.

We need to "do" everything today because tomorrow state of emergency starts....again. One can only be out for food, med and Dr appointments. We do have a full pantry here so no worry there.

Today is make and deliver bread to our neighbour .Clean cupboards is on the list but will see how it goes.

Sandy, I think getting the shots will be the turn around on this virus. According to the news last night we should all have ours by Sept. To be honest that is not soon enough for me.

Gloria, hope Yvette made it and you did get a good back rub.

Shirley, hope you are doing ok.

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone, sun is shining already but is brr on the thermometer at just 20. I had an appointment with my heal th probider yesterday on the phone. She want to see me in July,  tha t will be more than a year since I saw her las t.

JANE  first time I saw people dressed for bed was in San Diego,  took a few years for it  to get tha t bad here. Guess I am of the "old school" I would never go out anywhere in  the clo thes I hang around  the house in or wearing jeans.

PATRICIA  when the time comes for the vaccine in this building they will come here in the building to give us the shots. Wish we would hear something soon.

TOMEREADER  heard on news that they now want  to get those going to the Olympics the shots so they would be safe to go. So far my family here and me a re OK but my daughter and SIL live in Arizona and he was in the hospital for almost a week wi th the covid, home now and doing much better.

LLOYD  hope you and Nancy both slept  good last night, I sure did.

AMY  yes Yvette made i t yes terday and wen t to market for me and put things away and I got my back massage with the Hempvana pain cream. That stuff has worked miracles for my back. Today is laundry day.

Have a good day and stay safe and healthy.

To be honest, I don't remember if I posted yesterday or not & too much to do this morning to go back. My eye exam was disappointing (to say the least). The new lady optometrist thought my eyes too cloudy & unstable to make new glasses without first having an eye surgeon exam. I had with me the 'script from last year that I wore for a week & when that was over, couldn't see out of them again. Must have shocked my eyes enough they changed completely. At any rate, she did give me a name of a surgeon that hopefully will not insist on prescribing the med I'm allergic to. A must do if I want to keep driving. I've actually heard about so many that were disappointed in the results and I had always heard "it was a piece of cake". So has taken over my brain/thinking for the moment.

Lloyd Hammond

Good Morning everyone. yes and thank you  Gloria at least I never heard Nancy groining, If she did not, and she let put my arm over her shoulder's and i had to get up and take a pill for sleep and then sleep 6.5 hours according the tattle, and I feel pretty good as for rest. sun is up bright and 34º now very light wend and calling for high of 51º today. Hope you all have a great day. I sure will be glad when we all get common since back,


Lloyd Hammond

 Shirley maybe you should go to walleye world and just try on will fit glasses that you can see good with. and save some $$$.I do not have to worrier with that VA checks and furnishes My glasses. Have a good day.



Good Morning Everyfriend!  Just a quickie so you know I'm still around.  I have some errands to run and the doggies are both sleeping so it's a good time to go right now. 

I'll be back to check up on you later.  Have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Lloyd, my vision isn't THAT kind of problem. I can read & thread a needle without glasses but it is distance I have a problem with as well as "astigmatism" & whatever else "they" keep messing with. Guess if it isn't one thing it will be another! It is 54 degrees & supposed to go to 57, the sun is shining, I want to run away from home!!!

Going to make a batch of spaghetti & pig out! Found a nice looking head of lettuce and big-big slicing tomato yesterday so will have salad with it. Will chop up a red onion & put half in the spaghetti sauce & other half in the salad, along with fresh garlic & maybe a whole loaf of bread. How about some honey cured bacon cooked & crumbled over the salad??? Okay, gotta get busy.

Gloria, so far the knee doesn't appreciate the HempVana so I'm guessing it hurts because I do something every day or night that aggravates it. I like to FIX problems and not working today! So far I've been to 2 of the Sam's Club stores & they didn't have MY fav drinking water so will call before going to another. My dues are up in Feb so if I can't get what I want I will not renew .... I am angry today & willing to take on anyone that crosses me! :knuppel2:


Well this wasn't a very busy place today!  Everyone must have been busy at home trying to catch up.

SHIRLEY,  I heard from a friend that we should beging to hoard drinking water because it's going to become scarce and the tap water isn't going to be fit to drink.  I'm not sure how she knows that or where it came from and I didn't put much stock in it until you said some of the stores were out of certain bottled water. 

I got a lot done today but it doesn't really show.  One of the things I did was buy an acorn squash at Davy's and cook it for supper.  It was sooooo good!  And good for me!

Yesterday, Cathy brought me a container of home made ham potpie for my supper.  Now that is NOT any kind of "pie".  It's a German dish made with ham, potatoes, ham juice and a dough made with flour, eggs and water and rolled out and cut in squares.  It's so good and a special in our house at this time of year....or any time of year for that matter.  It was one of my German grandfather's specials.

I hear the zzzzzs coming down the hall after me.  I'm really tired and ready to conk out.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, healthy, germ-free tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Preppers are sending about the water shortages and other cached items because of rioting and insurrection expected around the inauguration. I tend to look at it as "Fool me once.." & not worry about it.

Lloyd Hammond

Shirley come on over we have comfey king in the couch you can crash on as long as you want. I know how you feel. nothing wrong with the world it is us pepole in it. good night and sweet dreams.



It is late, but I want to at least say HELLO.

NOTHING new here.  At least that means nothing bad to report. 

My brother made it safely to AZ.  He sent a picture of my Dad today and he looks about the same as he did when we saw him last.  I sent it to all of my sons and they all appreciated seeing him and were happy about how he looks.  I hope to talk to my brother soon to see what he has to say.

SHIRLEY, I am sorry your eyes are not doing well and I hope you can see the surgeon soon. I know you had to be disappointed.  Your meal plans sounded good....I hope you enjoyed it! 

GLORIA, happy Yvette made it and you got your back rub. Glad that your health care provider thinks you are doing OK and can wait for a July appointment. 

JANE, the ham pot pie your Cathy made for you sounds yummy. Hope you have a great night of rest.

AMY, I feel the same regarding the Covid Vaccine.  Let's get em going so we can all get through this. Our governor says 70 and above will all be vaccinated by the end of February.  I want to believe it...but?

Pleasant dreams to all,



Good morning..

Overcast and 26° here..warm!

I slept in guess yesterday is telling on me. Managed to get the bread done and more laundry. We took 5 loaves over to the neighbour, 3 raisin and 2 white.

Today is pick up meds, pay bill and continue on with the purging.

Shirley, we also had a spaghetti dinner, thanks to our friends. They gave us 2 big trays of it and we still have lots leftover. Maybe they have a new med out now that your body will accept??

Jenny, that will take a bit of the worry off when you can see your Dad, even though it is just a photo.

Gloria, Yvette is a blessing to you! And so in that cream.

Better get a move on here...

Take care and stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm getting on the computer for the first time this morning.  First, the newspaper took my attention.  What is this country coming to?  We need to pull together to get rid of this horrible virus, not be at odds with one another over someone whose mouth is too big for the rest of his body...including his brain.  I'm sorry if that offends anyone but it's true!

We, the doggies and I have had a nice walk this morning and they are both sleeping now.  I've finished reading the paper including doing the word jumble and the crossword puzzle (my all time favorite thing to do with my "spare" time is word games.

I also do a lot of "shopping" on line.  I don't buy much but I look a lot! 

I guess I better get busy pretty soon or nothing will get done around here today.  I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Am on a dead run because I rolled over & went back to sleep this morning. Have a printer "out for delivery" and if it gets here early enough Andy will come by & install. It will print from anywhere in the house the computer is, even the oldest computer. It is different from the kind I've always had so have to get my head organized for thinking!

Had a message from Jackie this morning, I asked if she minded if I passed it on to y'all but did not wait for her permission ... She has 2 serious tests to go through soon, to determine what stage her MS is at, so extra prayers that the results bring hope in some way, that she can find a way to cope with the illness. So often just a little encouragement can make it easier to fight on. Covid certainly has made it harder for all of us to keep our spirits up.


Picked up the meds and now to cook up chicken for the dogs.. Paid bills over the phone , miss going in and chatting with the ladies but it is what it is.  I see one of the stores has cauliflower on sale and I am so tempted to get some and make up the recipe that son sent. Oh boy is it good!!

While out I picked up some baskets so the "stuff" under the kitchen sink can be organized better.

Birds are eating as if it is their last meal, I know we are to get rain/freezing rain and maybe they know the food will be under ice. Better go put more out for them.

Good Morning Y'all..

It is in the high 30's today and
then up in the 40's for a couple of
days...  and this is January 14th.. 

Amazing weather we are having...

I hope that Jackie has some good news
from her tests and that she chooses to
start posting here again,  as I miss seeing

I know that I should talk
because I tend to sit back
and not participate as much as
I used to.      Especially during
these Covid years...  I need to
participate and stay actively
involved ....  so that I can keep
my brain from becoming a spoiled

Best wishes to everyone

Good morning every  one, boy did I wake LATE this morning. After 10:30 and I went  to bed a t 10 last night. This will be short as I want to get dressed befor noon when Yvette gets here.

I had not heard anything here about bottled water. The part of town I live in has artesion wells and the water is good.  Only a few in this building drink the bottled water and they are the ones that never lived in town before. Thanks to Yvette I think I have a years supply of paper towels and TP and detergen t for laundry and dishes. She uses coupons a lot and wait s for sales  to use them. She has a room in her house that  must look like a storeroom. 

Sorry I did not pos tmore but have to rsh and get dressed for the day or I will still be in nitey and robe when she gets here
  Have a good day and with God's help stay safe.

Good morning, I just woke up after one of those out of the blue sleepless nights, didn't go down until just after five. It's only 8:49 now. Absolutely nothing new here other than posting my PSP; thank you, Tome, for your appreciation, by the way. My arthritis, which is affected by the barometric pressure, has gone back into hiding, and my morning call around has finished. So, another usual morning.

I was absolutely shocked that the commander of the Army yesterday felt the need to remind the soldiers of their oath, but this has been building since the Branch Davidians and the Murray building, and people seem to forget that other than some external features or religions, we're all the same underneath with all the same emotions and needs. No one has more or less than the person next to them. Sometimes I want to yell out "Get it together, people!"


Patricia, yelling get it together to those that don't realize they have lost it will fall on deaf ears. But you go ahead and yell and  many of us will be right behind you on that.

Chicken is all cooked and ready to be bagged for the dogs once it has cooled.

That job of cleaning under the sink is now in the rear view mirror and now onto the next one.

Kyle now has three more trugs built for orders and I do have a wee job for him if my order comes in.

Spent time with the post office, over the internet, that was interesting but really please with the outcome.

Now, Babe and I have a date, her nails need to be clipped, a job neither one of us likes...me for bending over and her
 just because..
