A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.
-Eleanor Roosevelt, diplomat and writer (11 Oct 1884-1962)

 Those Were The Days (Theme to All In The Family)
Songwriters: Charles Strouse / Lee Adams

Boy, the way Glen Miller played.
Songs that made the Hit Parade.
Guys like us, we had it made.
Those were the days

Didn't need no welfare state.
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
Those were the days

And you knew where you were then
Girls were girls and men were men.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.
People seemed to be content.
Fifty dollars paid the rent.
Freaks were in a circus tent.
Those were the days

Take a little Sunday spin,
Go to watch the Dodgers win.
Have yourself a dandy day
That cost you under a fin.
Hair was short and skirts were long.
Kate Smith really sold a song.
I don't know just what went wrong
Those Were the Days

Great text & graphics.... and one of my favorites, "Those Were the Days"... title to the "book" my mother wrote of her early life. Interesting quote from Elenore Roosevelt, for some reason I always felt she had a hard, unloved life. Thanks, Bubble.

Good morning, Jackie... I am up too early so will go back to bed. The furnace is set too hot for sleeping so threw the covers off & thinking my day ahead. Had a busy day yesterday, neighbor's son was happy to take down the large BirdView satellite dish & I gave him boxes full of all equipment that my husband had bought to go with it (remote control, lots of parts & pieces).

Gloria, are you eating any home grown veggies or fruit? I'm not seeing any for sale like other years (signs in the yards). When does the best oranges come out of FL? I thought this was the time people picked ripe. Never saw any orchards advertising to come pick apples & peaches this year. Plenty of pumpkin patches for the little ones. Has not been a normal year, for sure.  Guess I'll have to be patient, just Googled & a little early.

Wishing all a marvelous Monday.


Amy

Good morning..

Chilly with a temp of 37° at the moment. We are taking the day off. Will be taking back a coffee machine ,just bought that dribbles and doesn't heat the liquid! Then go for a drive about. Not sure where we will end up but looking forward to just enjoying the day out.

Bubble, thank you for the new start,enjoy the graphic and can't wait to smell the lilacs again!!

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Got up to 48º and had a low in the mid 30s.  Frankie's remark when she dropped off Cooper this morning..."Boy! it's cold out there!"  She's right but it's gonna get a lot colder!

BUBBLE, thanks for the redecoration of our Soda Shoppe!  You always do such a good job!  i'm one of those who connects with "Those were the days" too!  Everything was entertaining or thought-provoking!

JENNY, thanks for the thoughts.  I keep you in my thoughts, too and I pray that your shoulders with both be giving you good service.

LLOYD, hurry back!  We all miss you!

I have to go look for the directions for my countdown to surgery.  I have a bunch of drinks in the fridge that I have to start soon and I can't find the directions that came with them.  I guess I'll have to go on line and check if they're in my file.  With only a week to go, I'm thinking I might be required to start them this week.

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

The power blinked out yesterday, jus t enough t o have to reset  things. This lemon was t he worse. Jus t finally got  online with it.
Read the posts but not responding, sorry.

BUBBLE  loved your lilac graphic. When I see them blooming in the spring I know arm weather is on the way, love the fragrance, too.

SHIRLEY  gardens are all put t o bed for winter around here. Don't have any idea about Florida oranges, I only like the Sunkist ones from the west coast.

Have  to try to download  things I lost when the power blinked last night.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good Night!  Sweet Dreams!  I'm heading for the haystack in a little bit!  I haven't been getting my afternoon naps these days and I miss them.  Today, Christy and her hubby were here for a bit.  They came up from Maryland to get a new clothes dryer from her brother's store.  And they stopped here to visit and wait for Frankie to get off work.  I don't know if they're back home yet or not.  They were supposed to text me when they got there and my phone died just about the time they were supposed to get home. 

PATRICIA, thank you for the good thoughts.  I need all I can get.  The closer this surgery gets, the more nervous I get!

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

Now I know I am awake too early this morning. Only a few posts since I was here yesterday. Maybe woke so early to be ready when maintenance and someone to check the sprinkler system will be here today.  Maintenance will also check to see if we made changes he recommended since the inspection. I have a chair next to the bed where I sit to get dressed, he wants it out of there because if I fell out of bed I would be unable to reach the emergency cord. I could reach it but then I also have a lifeline  that will pick up a fall, too. Witch complained in a note to all of the tenants that there have been to many emergency calls and this company has to pat  for all the trips the rescue truck comes the 1 mile here from the station and we should use our own lifelines or call 911. I cannot get dressed sitting on the bed, too high, or standing up. This place is getting worse buy the day lately.

There I go complaining again, sorry.
Have a good day everyone and stay safe.

Good morning..

Yesterday was a busy but perfect day. After we got rid of leaky lip coffee pot in exchange for a new one we or rather I hit the stores. Two grocery stores to get what I wanted, one chocolate store which was a we not I and one quilt store and that was just me! Picked up the panel of the puppies and co0ordinating fabric, now to finish the last top for cancer quilts and do this one. Then we headed for home after having lunch . Weather was misty rain in places but nothing to worry about, unpacked the vehicle and just having our tea when the clouds opened up and down it came, rain at first then snow!! That was perfect timing on our part.

Today, I am not so sure would like to can the 20 lbs of potatoes I picked up yesterday but we shall see.

Patricia, thank you. It was nice to just go,not have an appointment to be at a certain place and time.

Gloria, people like your witch should all be housed in one place then they can drive each other crazy.

Jane, we get to look forward and enjoy those little cat naps. Remember what June said... give your worries to God, He is up all night anyway.

Callie.. :cup: 

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning. 

Just checking in to say Hi !

I wish that I could take naps during the
day.    My body just doesn't like it and I wake up
with my nerves shattered and over all
not feeling well.     

And then there are others who thrieve on naps.

And so ot goes.   
We are all so differnet and yet
sometimes so alike.

Good morning from the Interior at 27 degrees. There is still no snow, we missed two snow due dates, and it warmed up to melt the ice over the weekend. Our usual winter snow date is by Halloween, and we had earlier light snow that didn't last. I wonder if it will be similar to 2010 when we had our first recorded ice storm, and people joked about clearing their driveways with a tablespoon.

I envy those who can nap during the day. I have trouble sleeping, waking up every couple of hours on a good night. If I sleep during the day, I stay awake during the night, and it may take a week to get back to my "normal" sleeping habits.

Gloria, we have both our maintenance and fire extinguisher and alarm system tests on the third. We also have our booster shots scheduled for that day.

Our manager rarely says anything about maintenance other than to remind us to call them and not her. We have a state answering service to call, and they relay our issues to the local maintenance office who assigns someone to handle them.

There are two apartment inspections with the manager each year and an annual pet exam for the office. There is also a service coordinator who aids tenants, arranges programs, helpers such as CNAs, and helps those who need it with taxes, paperwork, or finding a program to meet particular needs.

The fourth is when I will try to get all my monthly errands and chores done in one day. The rebuilding of two neighborhood bridges is to end this month. They've been closed for a year, forcing those of us in the neighborhood to pay more for alternate routes. So, it will be nice to save a little extra and perhaps spread errands out more.

Hello, Everyfriend!  I'm really tired tonight but it has been a very good day!  First, I got some things done early this morning that have been yelling for attention.  Then Cindy drove me 65 miles for a visit with my sister and so she (Cindy) could look through some of the old recipes that Margie has collected over the years.  Our Grandfather owned a bakery in his younger years and we all enjoyed looking through his recipes in his handwriting. 

When we came home, we stopped at Cathy's to switch cars (Cindy didn't think my old jalopy would make the 65 miles so she made a deal to trade it for Cathy's car) we were invited to stay for supper.  We did and then when we left there, Cindy dropped at the polls to cast my vote.  When we got home, both of us were tired.  Cindy has already retired and I'm just about to hit the haystack!  And that's my day!

PATRICIA, I loved your pictures.  Sometimes the old cameras really show offQ

AMY, sounds like you had a nice day and got home just in time!. 

SANDY, I can nap during the day but only if I have a blanket to "cover my feet and my seat".  It doesn't matter if anything else is covered but I can't seem to fall asleep during the day if those two places aren't covered!  Weird!

Forgot to mention that there was a surprise package on my doorstep when we got home.  It was a beautiful quilt made by friends in a beautiful bag that I can use to tote my personal needs to the hospital on Monday when I go for my surgery.  I love them both but I love the thought even more!  It was such a nice thing to do and brought both a smile to my lips and tears to my eyes!

I'm off to the haystack and I bet it's loaded with zzzzzs!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow!  And may God bless us, every one!

Good brrrr morning. It is now 34 and when I pulled up the shade every thing was white with frost, looks like a thick one, too. We will be lucky to get out of the 40's today. Nothing came of the maintenance man coming in yesterday. He never showed up and he lef t early. The witch came up with a man wi th a flashlight whe was shining it at the fire alarms high up on the walls. Have no idea how anyone could  reach that high to pull them.

AMY  time to get the Geemagotchees on for sure today. Glad I had my warm robe ou t for this morning and feels good, also turned  the heat up to 75 for now. Once it gets warm I will turn it down to her 68.

PATRICIA  it we have something the maintenance man has to  take care of we have to let witch know and she will give him the work order. I think we all miss  the one who retired, he fought for we old folks but this new one is what  some would call a -brown noser-. My daughter takes great pictures with her iPhone. Her husband does, too, and he has a great camera with all the different lenses and he does not  use it now.

JANE  I am like you, need a cover to fall asleep. Even in summer I have to at least have the top sheet over me to fall asleep.

About now I feel like I could have a morning nap but Yvette will be here early this morning so cannot lay down. The lady she has before me has been having a lot of appointments so I let her come when she wants but it sure is throwing me off my routine. She will be having the first knee surgery on the 10th so then will be the fun of replacements for her for 3 months.

Have a good day and be safe.

Good morning..

Yes, it is a brr morning here also with a temp of 25°!
Lots to do today, can the potatoes and trim the Brussel sprouts if time permits.  Today is also the first of 3 days that I look after the neighbours dog and cat. Love these critters and will enjoy the next 3 days. Rex gets pills 3 times a day now to help with achy joints and his allergy. Boy, I fit right in with him at times.

Gloria, for sure the Geemagotchees will be on. Today is to be nice and not have rain or snow....so they say. Hope you get someone as good a Yvette when she has her surgery.

Jane, going through those old recipes would bring back a lot of memories.  I have a feeling that package brought two surprises ,one for you and one for the sender. Great way to end a wonderful time with your family.

Better get a move on.......slept in  and have a lot to do today.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Good Morning Everyfriend!  We also had temps below freezing overnight.  When Cooper arrived this morning he was wearing a coat.  He looked so cute and toasty warm. 

Right now the temp is 36º but it was down to 28 overnight and is going the same direction overnight tonight.  It's giving us a taste of winter but, so far, no snow!

I have a bunch of things lined up to do today and I better get started or they won't get done.  Cindy is at her computer doing her daily job with the company in Texas that she still works for from her home in OKla.  I've heard her on the phone with them and I could actually hear her boss talking to her.  You can tell he trusts her and is glad he didn't lose her when they moved to OKLA. 

Had to interrupt and take Cooper for a walk.  Also, I'm supposed to continue at laeas 2 ten minute walks a day until my surgery.  So we accomplished two things on our walk!

Now I'm off to try to get some other stuff done that needs to be done before Monday.  I hope you all have a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Almost forgot...AMY, you're right.  The package contents brought a lot of pleasure to a very good day!  And it gave me an even more special closeness with the sender!
