I've had another busy day.  I followed Frankie's cleaning with some of my own and also changed the bed where she sleeps when she's here.  It was past time for that. 

Today was a cold one!  The temps never got above 41 and most of the day were in the 30s.  I still maintain Spring is on the way.  I hear the geese every day now.

I'm off to the haystack to check for some zzzzs.  I'm really tired tonight!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Tuesday night and we are in Sayre Oklahoma.  We were to spend the night in Amarillo TX, but a terrible storm is heading towards us and we decided to move on.  They are reporting a strong winter storm to arrive during the night....we just hope it will not be too sever.

The packers of our sons household goods kept putting them off and off so that sure was not good.  They were to arrive Wednesday or Thursday....ended up getting there Saturday afternoon.  They worked for a couple of hours then the two guys got in a fisticuff and one quit and sat n the cab of the truck fo a couple of hours...our son helped the remaining guy and they got it loaded up!  😩😤🤪 

We arrived at my Dad and Diane's on Friday.... Dad was so happy to see us and of course we were thrilled to see them.  Son and Family came on Sunday and we had a nice visit.  We all started the LONG drive on Monday morning and it was very hard to say goodbye to Dad.  We stayed in Albuquerque New Mexico last night. 

Today I got a surprise visit from a Texas State Trooper.  We were ALL driving along the interstate ....500 semis trucks and tons of cars....the patrolman came up beside me.....then dropped back pulled in and turned on his lights......seems he picked Lucky Me out of the crowd of cars...he gave me a warning ticket....going eighty in a 75 MPH.  We all swear he picked me as the car we are driving has California plates!  He was very kind BUT.....the funny thing is we had cars and trucks flying by us all day long....the three of us were all just going in the slow lane, my son leading today....his speed control was set on 76 and we were all just staying up....oh well! 

Thank you for all the nice wishes for our drive....we are getting tired, but will be arriving at their new home soon. 

CALLIE, Bentonville and Springdale are very close in distance...wouldn't that be something if our kiddos both end up living that close together?  Unfortunately the club Mark is the GM at is a private club but I bet they can find a time and a course that they could do some golfing at together 🥰🥰

Take care and good night to all.

Good Morning every one. My day is not starting good. this is my third time trying to post. Denver apparently posted at same time just a second ahead of me
and booted me out. we are having Heavy thunder storms at the moment. Have a good day everyone.

Lloyd

JaneS

good Morning Everyfriend!  It's 36º right now but heading for a high of 54.  That SPRING to me! 

JENNY, it sounds like that trooper hadn't made his quota yet and choose an out-of-state driver to help him make it.  You were just there at the wrong time!

We're just waiting for the boinger for breakfast right now.  Mickie is under the desk so she doesn't miss it if I get up and go into the kitchen.  She can't hear but she sure doesn't miss much!

My plan for today is to inventory the frezzaer in the kitchen, work on my shopping list, finish up some stuff that got started yesterday, rake another section of the yard, take some walks with Mickie and whatever else decides to holler for attention!  And if half of that gets done, I'll be surprised!

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

Good morning..

Going to be another lovely day here, won't have Janies temps but starting out at 20,0176 is not too bad.

Managed to get a lot of small jobs done yesterday and I think that is the way I am going to go this morning. I have a ripe banana and if I remember right also have a recipe for the bread maker for Hawaiian bread so that may happen.

Jane, I need to do that to the big freezer, I am sure there is fruit in there to make bumbleberry jam..one day it will happen.

Jenny, oh dear,that officer was not very forgiving!!

Better get a wiggle on as the day is moving faster than I am.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

All I can say, Jenny, was the cop that stopped me on my last trip home in the 16 year old Rialta, cost me a nice chunk of money!  It is mean, tho. I was "every 3rd car" to get a ticket like that one other tim, hahaha, that ticket showed up in my check book as the grocery store & Cas never knew about it. I had a witness riding with me, we really were just following traffic speed.  So sorry you were so honored.  :-\

You are so ambitious to clean out the freezer, Jane, I only do that when it needs to be defrosted. Hate the job, yes, I do! For sure I am getting lazy.

Lloyd, we also had rain most of the night & sending it on your way. Sure is speeding up the green and we needed it. The river has not been up to clean out the logs left behind by those beaver so the down stream dams may be clogged pretty good when it does.

Gloria, hope you get a new computer soon. I'm still thrilled with this HP laptop I got on sale a couple years ago. Hold my breath that it keeps on behaving, but every time I go thru a Walmart I go past the computer aisle & check. No $250 sales here!  I even bought the new version of PSP to put on it but couldn't figure how to set it up so useless. I don't like Windows 10 & can't find stuff like the old computers but it gets me here & the weather.  :thumbup:

Daughter is off getting her hair done for zoom meetings all afternoon. She is still on the advisory board at the college & with 4 kids, 5 grands, they keep her busy. She finished up the Easter baskets & boxes to mail & has been keeping up with my eye drops & meds. I'm not used to having meds to keep track of & this BP med has geared me down so much we've cut it in half the last few days, I'm like a zombie. Got to keep on it until the next eye fixed but then I'm going to wean myself off. We just are not all made alike & I'm okay with being on "fast=forward". 

Amy, we are hearing the spring singing of happy birds and the red bud trees are popping their little buds, won't be long. I had hoped to get eyes fixed & new glasses to be on the way to MO by the time they are in full bloom, not going to happen.  :tissue:

That's all from Wichita.... y'all behave & if you can't .... have fun!  Shirley

Seems Tom T Turkey is staying at the store. This may be one of three that grew up without a mom I am told. When a car drives in he runs after it! Hope he soon finds more turkeys to join and go into the woods!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Everyfriend

Jenny and family may not have had a comfortable night in Sayre.  Tornadoes to the south of them, a reall honest-to-goodness blizzard to the north of them and wind/hail/rain in between.  It's been a wild time in Oklahoma!!!!
Not wishing anything awful to those east of us but do hope this series of crazy storm systems moves ahead of them as they drive the entire west-east length of Oklahoma.

Carson has accepted the job in Bentonville!  He will be based there but could be sent to various places in surrounding states to work on projects the construction company has going. Graduation is in May and he expects to start job in June.

My book club is meeting via Zoom this morning and I need to get myself settled.  BBL/size]

Shirley

Amy, I'd be taking a hand full of corn to that turkey every time I shopped!  ;)  I love to make friends with the wildlife. Poor babies. :(

Thanks for the news from Jenny, Callie, so sorry they are getting hit from all sides. Spring weather is always crazy & one reason I hesitate heading to the lake this season. Not the place to be in a motorhome that isn't "tied down" & doesn't have wings!  Got a feeling WE may be in for a rough ride this spring.... all of us.

Happy St.Pat's Day! Wear green or you get pinched!

Amy

Shirley, I also love feeding the
 wild life but the owner of the store doesn't want him fed.......seems he is scratching up peoples vehicles when they stop there.  I hope some girl turkeys come by and give him something else to think about.  :smitten:

Good morning, nothing new here except I receive my second vaccination tomorrow.

Lloyd Hammond

Good afternoon everyone. Glad to see you up date us  Gloria, Just keep on getting better so you feel like stopping in often we all love and Miss you.
you all talking about feeding the wild life brings back a memory. My step father used to feed buck dear, Had it eating right out of his had. A neighbor stopped by  and asked to go dear hunting, and  Sam said yes, and less than a 1/2 hour he came back with Sam's dear in his truck. and Mom said Sam came in the house and set down in his chair and cried Like a baby. just to show we all need to think before act.

Just checking in to say we are fine and will drive to Arkansas tomorrow.  There were storms ALL around us today....including tornado warnings in Springdale where we are headed tomorrow. 

Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

JaneS

I'm off to the haystack!  I sure hope it's loaded with zzzzs tonight because I'm really tired.  I can't think what I did to get so tired except walk a lot with Mickie. 

LLOYD, that's so sad about the buck that your stepdad lost!  It made me cry too.

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

P.S.  Be careful, JENNY!

Good Morning!  AMY, the rain is widespread!  We have it too and it's supposed to last all day and into the night!  My dogs do not like walking in the rain!

Frankie and I both had something special happen so we're celebrating with dinner together today when she gets home from work.  We thought of lots of things to have and decided tha t both of us are hungry for pizza so she's going to stop at our favorite Italian Pizza shop (It's local and definitely Italian.  The main owner speaks very broken English and he's the one who opened the shop).  Everyone who grew up here, has to have pizza from there when they come home.

I'm going to try to find something that needs doing!  If I'm careful, I might be able to overlook everything!

Enjoy your day....more than yesterday but not as much as tomorrow!

Good Morning everybody! We had two inches of snow last night and it's all pretty much melted by now. It is predicted to have Light rain off and on today. The current temperature is 36º. when I click On the alt 167 to get the little degree circle it loses my post and goes to some different page ( crazy ). Have a good day just as you like it.

Sandy

I just got my second  Covid shot... 

Hooray Hooray,  I am done for now....  Two more weeks and
I will be feeling safer than I have this past year. 

But still of course, I have to wear my masks and be
sure to wash my hands, and be very grateful that my kids
were here to help me stay save. 

I am truly blessed. 

Best wishes to all

Good morning. Like Sandy, I had my second shot today, and that's what's new for today.

Amy

Sandy and Patricia, way to go ladies on getting your 2nd shot. :thumbup:

Our day turned out perfect.off we went to an area we hadn't been in a long while. Saw new building,torn down old barns and reminisced about how it used to be..

The sky was overcast making the drive much easier on the eyes. Dogs came with us and slept through most of it waking up to go for a needed break and finding out we had FOOD!! Saw a few flocks of geese on the wing.

Melting here and the water is getting away nicely without causing any damage.

Good Night Everyfriend!  The pizza was very good but the company was even better!  Frankie is spending the night and we had lots to talk about.  I introduced her to some old time TV stars when they were young and appeared on Perry Mason Shows.  Seems she's familiar with some of their kids who appear now.

Gotta go get some sleep.  I think the rain stopped about an hour ago and tomorrow is supposed to be into the mid 40s in the afternoon.  I can handle that.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy, Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning to all of you from me, too!  This will be a quickie for me, also.  Frankie will be getting up soon and heading out for work.  Cooper will spend the day here and I have everything set out to make bunny, chick and duckie lollipops to send to Oklahoma for Easter.  I'll also drop some off down the street for some of Mickie's little friends.

The rain has stoppped but it dipped into the mid 20s overnight.  Hopefully, the prediction of mid 40s later today will be true.

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