Jane,your supper sounds delicious!I hope these two men theGeneral and Uncle know what special company they are in.Enjoy your meal.

We have watched Rex grow from a pup to a wonderful dog.I tease his owners that I am going to take Rex home with me and he would come!

Not a lot to show for my day today, just couldn't get in gear. Never did make the phone calls, not sure I will. Debating whether to ask Medicare or Blue Cross if I am cutting my own throat to NOT go through with the surgery or if I will be okay as far as insurance goes, to put it off. I am not comfortable about doing it right now, think they are pushing too hard.

Phyll, do hope whatever went wrong in your world is fixed. Hugs to you while in re-hab.

Jane, long time for surgery, prayers will be with you & thoughts & concern until we hear from you after it's all over.

Rick, my nose joins yours on this run-a-way, worst pollen in years & no frost here either. This week end & Monday back to low 70s! I am consoling myself with day after Halloween sale candy, how about Twix, Hershey, M&M, Snickers, & Butterfinger, all fun size.... my favorites & all half price, doesn't get any better than that! Lucky for me I don't gain weight so will enjoy & then feel guilty when all gone. Ah, bad me........

Amy, these cats love raw red meat, can't find the Friskies' Indoor Delights dry but have over half a 13 lb bag left. Just made a big order from Chewy of 2 cases of the Friskies cans & some kitty litter. Awful that it's so hard to find, crazy!

Patricia, do you change time in Alaska?  I think/thought AZ was the only state that doesn't. I dread doing the clocks but at least I think all the electronics does it on it's own (Google things & computers/iPads, phone & FitBit?) I unplugged some of the clock radios because they are so irritating when power goes off for a few seconds & then they flash UNTIL....

Jackie, I had to Google to find spelling of Guy Fawks Day.... I remembered it the years we lived there. Quite a big splash in Marlow & High Wycombe. We don't do fireworks except for our 4th of July and a few will set some off on New Year's Eve. The prices of a few seconds color is more than I'm willing to spend for!

Gloria, have you hinted to your family that a new computer might be a welcome Christmas present?  Do you want a "full blown" computer or laptop?  I've loved this HP & was really afraid to buy it after the torture yours put you through.... but couldn't believe the price & at least 3 years old without any problems. My son couldn't believe I got a "touch screen" with all the bells & whistles for $250, but that's what it cost. I've checked every Walmart since but never found another on sale like this. In face, most of their laptops are "out of stock". I don't understand the lack of ALL products, made in US or overseas... empty shelves. Doesn't anyone work, produce anything anymore?

Gosh, need to call my sister-in-law. She had a fall last week & didn't sound like herself when I talked to her. She is the 3rd "old lady"<smile> that's banged up their face in the last month or so, taking a tumble. May be catching so I am being extra careful. 

Good night, sweet dreams... see the USA in your Chevrolet.... remember that?  Hugs...

I got a lot done today and now I'm tired enough to know that I worked hard.  I'm off to the haystack and I'm planning to grab all the zzzzs I can find!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Yes November 5th, Guy Fawkes day...fireworks and bonfires, although many now for the safety spectrum are held at various safe locations where families just turn up but, some still held in family back gardens...I was assuming you had the same in America as we do in England..ha ha, no wonder you were baffled as to what i was talking about...

Amy

Good morning..

My morning chores are now cut in half. Neighbours arrived home safe and sound last night. I bet they got a talking to from both dog and cat! I was happy to hear that my friends Mom knew her and could carry on a conversation with her. Not so sure that at another time she will be able to...dementia/Alzheimer's hurts in many ways.

Already had a scam call, my Amazon account has been...and so was he because I hung up !

Laundry day and it looks hanging out will happen. Work around home and see what happens, nothing pressing for the day here.

Jane, talked with David and the two of them took off yesterday and they came home with another cabinet to put preserves on!!

Gloria, geemogotchee morning here....27° at the moment.

Rich,I don't know if the neighbours have given Callie raw meat. I do know Callie will give them a mice or two
 should they happen to come in the house!

Shirley, a hard frost is needed here for both neighbours dog and ours. Can't come soon enough to give them relief from scratching!

Better get ready to meet the day.

Enjoy your day  and stay safe.

Good morning everyone another white morning with frost covering everything. Trees are mostly bare already excep t for the pines and there are a lot of them around. Will be a quiet  2 days without all the work going on around here. On Monday starting at 8 a glass company will check all the windows to see if they are all tight. Latest roumor going around is that the company who owns  the building is going to sell it. I do know this is the first time they have done so much cleaning and checking every thing in all the apartments. Landscapers wre here 2 days  this week and are losing the battle of trying  to get all  the leaves up off the ground.

PATRICIA  same here with blue sky and low humidity, cools off fast at night with a clear sky and all the stars showing. Nice in summer when i tmeans low humidity and a cooler night. We have a fob like you to get into the building but keys  to our apartments.

PHYLLIS  prayers that you feel well enough to go home soon.You are missed.

JACKIE  wha t is being celebrated  there with all that noise?

JANE  along with others I will be praying for you on Monday. I pray you wake on  Tuesday morning  to good news,  that every  thing with  that darn c is gone and you can live a lot more happy years. Yvette goes in for her knee surgery on Tuesday morning. I already dread  the 3 months of wondering if I will have help or not, especially someone who can cook.

SHIRLEY  this HP is my second one, first one was great but hard drive almos t full wi th all the graphics I was doing so ordered a new one from HP and I believe it must  have been made on a MOnday or a Friday. One day when people ar e tired from  the week end and need a rest or the other when looking forward  to a week end off. Wow shades of Dinah Shaw and her 15 minut e  TV program.

My son will be here soon so better go get dressed and a list made for the market.

Have a good day and s tay safe.

Right around that 32° mark this morning, and the cars have that beautiful white coating. So we have now had our first frost of the season. Hope it was enough to kill off those bad things out there. If it was, my sore nose thanks whoever is in charge of frost.
Other than that it is a nice sunny day at this time.  Need coffee.

Jackie, could you explain who Guy Fawkes was and why he's celebrated, please?

Nothing to report from my corner of the world.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere a Satisfying Saturday.  :)

Callie...
Guy Fawkes who was involved in the failed Gunpowder plot of 1605...they found him guarding the explosives...he confessed to wanting to blow up the House of Lords..His effigy is traditionally burned on a bonfire..

:hello: Patricia, hope your day is going great!!

Shirley, you would have loved to be with us this morning. On our way home from town a beautiful fox ran along side
 off the highway. Big busy tail with white tip on him, and nose to the ground. Did you inquire on your sister in law. is she ok?

Rick, a lot of folks and critters are thankful for the heavy frost. Dog next door is also allergic to wheat plus whatever is in the grass!!

Time to relax, all the laundry is done and off the line.

Good morning..

Beautiful day in the making here starting out at 31°.
 I need to go buy another vacuum today...the Dyson has again broke! To replace the part is half of what it would cost of a new one. No more Dysons for me!!

A day of rest when we get back home and to the sewing room I go. :thumbup: Not so fast here ,I have to set the clocks back then I can go..

One week into Nov and no s-n -o-w, not complaining here as we will get enough over the course of winter.
 
Jane, prayers as always..you've got this.

Better let the dogs back in.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone, got  side tracked watching a commercial for a Tebo massage chair. Just lay back and it will massage back from neck down to toes. Sounds too good and still have not mentioned  the price. Have to call or go on line to find out. Most likely too much for the average people these days  and they are afraid to shock  those watching the add.
Frost again this morning. Wonder if some morning when I pull the shade up I will see a different white out there instead of frost. At least white snow is beautiful to look at.

RAMMEL  hope your allergies now stop botheing your nose. Enjoy your coffee, I am now on my second cup of it.

JACKIE  who or what was Guy Fawkes? Real or made up like our Li'l Abner?

CALLIE  glad I am not the only one who knows nothing about Guy Fawkes.

JACKIE  thanks for letting us know at  leas  Guy  Fawkes was a real person.

AMY  now that  it is getting colder I can imagine how good the clothes smell when you take them off the line and fold them. I used t o love put t ing the newly washed and dried shee ts back on the beds. Smelled so good. 27 here when I got up, colder than you this morning.

JANE  prayers following you.

LLOYD  where are you? Hope it is your computer not working and not you being in the hospital.

Have a good day and stay safe.

Good morning, no news here, which is to be expected on a Sunday during the lockdown. We are the state with the highest cases presently. They again promise snow this afternoon and evening, a whopping 0.2 inches. I'm thinking of Beverly and Jane this morning and hope those facing medical procedures will have good news.

Back to checking clocks and coffee.

RAMMEL

We also had frost this morning. That's a second morning with that beautiful white coating on the cars and grass.  Thankfully my allergies do seem somewhat better. At least not the constant runny nose and repeated sneezing. Soon the snow will be here and I'll be back complaining about that. Some people are just never happy  :idiot2:

Before it gets too late in the day --- Good luck and quick recovery to those scheduled for "Procedures" this week.

Looks like my mouse wants new batteries. It's starting to stutter, sputter, and miss.

I have never felt so shocked as i am today...In church our female minister mentioned our news this week, no she did not go into detail just mentioned the shocking news this week, one was of a hospital...As i dont listen to tv news anymore i had no idea what story she was referring to so looked it up on my computer and, oh i have never been so shocked and sickened before, this person is the lowest of the lowest...He was an electrician in the hospital and went into the mortuary sexually abusing 99 " corpses, "  even children...I hope they throw away his key...

Good Sunday Morning,

I'm "squeaking and creaking" this morning - probably because I decided to trim back two of the turned-yellow-and-wilted Hostas in my back flower bed yesterday afternoon. I "parked" my rollator (walker with a seat) so I could sit/use it for balance while reaching and had no problems. However....some muscles are letting me know they hadn't been used in quite a while.

It was so nice outside that I spent another hour reading on the patio Had also filled the bird feeder/suet feeder and am sure the birds were watching because some appeared as soon as I sat down.

Gloria,  I actually do know who Guy Fawkes was (I love reading British history) but thought the story should come from someone who lives there and experiences the day.

Thank you, Jackie!


Beverly, Jane and MaryPage are in my thoughts and prayers today - and for the days ahead.

Off to prepare for watching church service on live Facebook video.

Vanilla-Jackie

Callie...sorry...a bit too graphic.. :o 

" look after our planet, it is the only one we have "   

CallieOK

Jackie, I was referring to your description of Guy Fawkes- not your post that followed mine.
I had my post ready and then lost it! By the time I redid it you had posted about the terrible news. 

We get the same reports of horrid events -over and over and over - and always "headlining" the news.  Then they'll throw in a quick story about something nice someone did - and back to the horrid stuff.  Gets annoying and tiresome!
Thank goodness for the mute button!!

I shan't be reading it any further, that was enough to turn my stomach...

Good Morning; Good Afternoon; Good Evening and probably "Good Night" too.  I'm getting down to the wire and I'm not prepared.  And Christy came up from Maryland yesterday and brought a fresh-killed chicken from their farm and she's been busy for the better part the past two days making a meal and inviting all the family to join us for supper tonight.  I have no idea what she made with the chicken but it's in a large pot on the stove! 

I really don't expect to sleep much tonight and I hope I don't keep my daughters awake. Even if I get all ready by bed time, morning IS going to come early for all of us! And I'm thinking, I probably won't sleep much!

I wish everyone here good health and well-being!  Please know that even if I don't communicate for a while, you are all in my thoughts!  Also, my daughters all know that they need to connect with AMY who will pass on the news to all of you!

I went to church this morning and it was the ALL SAINTS celebration.  They sang one of my favorite hymns and the prayers were perfect for my feelings.  I felt like my whole family was with me!

I HAVE A GOOD FEELING ABOUT ALL THAT IS COMING UP!!

Jane, one more God Bless on your plate tonight. Hi to all your kids, we're counting on you for updates, please?  Could it be chicken & dumplins?  YUM! Have fork will travel~~

Got up early-early & fed cats, went to church & to McDonald's with the grandson & family. Came home to feed cats again & took a nap the rest of the afternoon!  Maybe I will get something done tonight (or not).

Another windy day in Kansas. You'd think after nearly 70 years in Kansas I'd get used to it but it still makes me walk the floor (or sleep).

Good Morning my DEAR FRIENDS!  I'm ready to go!  We'll be leaving in about 45 minutes but I wanted to thank all of you for the prayers that will continue!  So....THANK YOU ALL!

Also wanted to let you know that the meal that was made from the fresh chicken was Italian Wedding Soup.  And we had a nice salad made by Cathy and icecream for dessert. 

Have a good day!
