Good morning, Buddies.  I set up my card tables yesterday afternoon and have had breakfast, peeled pears and put them on to cook, and am waiting for them to finish.  I have everything ready for bridge and think I will serve ice cream and cookies before we play today.  They will arrive about 1:00 and Merilyn must leave by 4:00 to check on her hubby, so it's best to get that out of the way.

I'll check back in later after bridge.  I hope everyone has a good day.  Special thoughts for Jane and Ray.  I hope the new meds help.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.
Sue

We’re 1/2 way to my sister’s tonight.  Lots of road construction which slows us down, but we’ll get there tomorrow.

Hi Jane, it sounds like you're making good time.  Take care and enjoy your trip!  Safe travels.

Bridge was OK.  I was glad that Merilin felt well enough to play.  She had to leave at 4:00, but we were almost finished by then.  I had some good hands and some not so good, so didn't win any money.

I took some of the left over cookies to my young neighbor next door.  When he gets a chance, he wants to take me to his parent's farm for a visit.  They live at Smith's Station which is not too far from here.  I think we'll go in a couple of weeks.

My watch stopped today.  On Friday, I hope Tim will have time to take me to the jewelry store to get a new battery and maybe a new watch band.  I wore it once when I was mopping with Clorox and the finish on the underside was scratchy feeling, but I got used to it.

My PBS news station had problems this evening and I missed seeing their news program.  I think there must have been heavy rainstorms up in Birmingham about 6:00.

Sleep well, Buddies.
Sue

Good morning, Buddies.  I took my time getting out of bed this morning.  Some days are just not peppy ones anymore.  I am going outside shortly to pull a few more weeds in the flower bed under my windows, but I'm going to knock off ship's work ASAP.  It's just too hot out there to stay out very long.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Jane, glad you're well on your way and safely.  Have fun in OHio.

Sue, glad the bridge went well and also glad you're smart enough not to stay out in the heat too long!!  It was 97 here yesterday, but supposed to be a lot cooler today.

John left about 9:30 for Duke Eye Institute for his usual 3 months check-up.  He will stay over night and come home tomorrow. Since they dialate his eyes and he has trouble seeing in the dark, that's the best plan.  He has decided that there is no reason for me to go along if he does that, but I worry about him on the road.

I need to go to the grocery, but am going to wait till I get his call that he got there safely. Otherwise, no big plans for me. 

Hope everyone is having a good day.  Sharon

Our week is winding down.  Some folks are leaving today and tomorrow, but the rental is up Saturday morning.  Our weather has been great - rain only one night.  The Gulf has been like a bathtub most of the day.
 This morning, we've had the special treat we look forward to almost every year.  The Blue Angels (Navy flight team) practices along our beach area.  They are based at Pensacola, FL, just east of here, so they're out over the water along our beach, doing loops, rolls, etc.  It's such great fun to get to watch them.

Safe travels to all who are on the road - and hoping for good medical reports from everybody.

Mary, I'm glad it has been a good week for you and to have the Blue Angels to cap it off!!  I've never seen them other than on TV, but they look spectacular there.  However, I'm glad Brian didn't go in for that kind of flying. Would have scared me silly.  Have a safe trip home.

Mary, I am glad you had pretty good weather for your vacation at the beach--and lots of fun with your family--and yummy food from the Gulf!  Have a nice trip back home and enjoy your memories.

Sharon, I've met several groups of Blue Angels over the years.  All were good lookin' but very cocky, so I wasn't too impressed.  They are great pilots as are ALL NAVY pilots, but the regulars like Bob weren't much for tooting their own horns.  They considered it their duty and responsibility, not a reason to brag.  It's lots of fun to watch the Blue Angels and the Air Force group (don't know what they call themselves) , though.  Let us know when John gets home safely.

I'm going to get a cold coke out and start one of my new library books.  Have a nice day, Every Buddy.
Sue


P.S.
Tim came over early and we had lunch at a favorite sandwich place, then went to the library and to Kroger.  I was home about 11:45 and after putting my groceries away settled down to read.  I just finished an Amanda Quick novel I'd started last night, so I'll try one of the Joe Pickett (western forest ranger) novels for the rest of the afternoon.

Sue, I just started an Amanda Quick novel yesterday evening.  Great minds!  Brian and Bob are apparently similar in outlook.  That was why Brian requested the cargo plane rather than a fighter.  Or at least that was part of it.  The fighters are away from their families a lot more and he didn't want that, but he admitted that the little boy in him still wanted to fly fighters!  So glad he was mature enough not to choose them though.I can't remember what the AF group is called.

John got home about noon and doesn't have to go for another 5 months as his eyes were fine.  I haven't done much today. Just piddling around. I may go put in a load of wash and I have lamb chops laid out for dinner.  Sharon

Our folks have been leaving over yesterday and today.  The rest of us will leave tomorrow morning.
 But the reservations are made for next year, so we know we'll be back.  Tonight is gumbo night.  Our buddy from Texas makes a roux at home, freezes it, and bring it with her, along with some cajun sausage.  We save any left-over goodies through the week (in the freezer) so there is lots of fresh seafood for the gumbo.  Yum!

Some of these folks we only see during this week, so it's always special.

It's hard to believe that summer is almost half-over.  Probably not the heat, though.

Happy midJuly, Buddies!

Good morning, Buddies.  I'm still not dressed, but I have finished breakfast and read the paper.  I stayed up pretty late to finish the book I started yesterday and I'm not planning on much outside except to go out back to pick up the pears which fell late yesterday and this morning. 

Sharon, the Navy pilots who fly the type of airplane Bob flew had large crews when he first got his wings.  At that time, the enlisted crew did a lot of work with statistics and a computer or two.  Not long before Bob died, we were watching TV and that plane that the Chinese had somehow captured was finally released and only 4 or 5 men got out of the plane.  I said, Oh, my goodness!  They must have wounded or killed the rest of the crew.  Bob laughed and told me that they don't need big crews anymore as most of the work except for flying the plane is done by computers!  Lots of progress since our 20 years of Navy life.

Mary, you are probably on the road, now.  I am glad you had such a good time at the beach--and very envious of all the yummy seafood you've been eating!  I hope your trip back home is a pleasant one.  Let us know when you get there.

Safe travels to Jane and other Buddies who are traveling.  Stay out of the heat, Every Buddy!

Sue, the C-17 that Brian flew was very computerized too.  They would redeive a DVD with directions and weather etc all on it and they just put it in the computer slot.  I'm sure it was more complicated than thaat, nbut that's what I understood.

I just came back from the FC where I did all my usual machines + 30 mins on the bike. I feel so virtuous!!  :)

It's about 89 and muggy here.  John went out this AM and did some yard work, weeking, trimming, cleaning and filling the birdbath and the sunflower seed feeder.  I'm calling him Papa bird now that he has taken over so many of my bird activities.  I fill the birdbath when I see it is down, but the hose is too heavy for me to drag around and blast it out clean it and then rinse and refill it.

I hope Mary is making it home safely and that Jane is in OHio now.  Sharon

Thanks for checking on me.  The girls got me home a little after 4 (ET).  We had left about 7:15 (CT), so it took us about 8 hours.  Mostly it was an easy trip.  There was one long slow-down just south of Birmingham, but other than that, no problems.  The only rain we had was just as we were leaving  the AL/GA border on I-59 - and just a few minutes.  Kate & Jean got me in the house, got a bathroom break, and were off to their homes in Nashville and W. Kentucky.  It was a great week, as usual; accommodations are reserved for next summer; my back is killing me; and I'm savoring the experience.  More later!

CC...glad the wedding was beautiful.  Only way to post a picture is to have it at a third party place on the internet.  I used to be able to do it for people using Photobucket, but they have shut down their free Service, and the cost is now outrageous, so I can’t help anymore.

You could send us the photo in email.

Hot humid Sunday here in Ohio.  We had a wonderful day yesterday....got to see all the kids and grands and great grands of my sister...including the baby who is 3months old and up to the 34 yr old with the 6 yr old and 2 1/2 yr old twins.  We’re resting today and will leave for home tomorrow.

My steroid dosage is over, so hope the pain stays away until I can get home.  It made this trip bearable.

Darlene, so glad the wedding was beautiful and that you had a good time.  You could get our emails from our proofiles to send us a picture.

Mary, I'm glad you're home safely. An 8 hr. trip is long for me anymore.  Now, rest up!

Jane, my goodness, you just arrived and now you're leaving!!  I am sure you enjoyed being with all the family, especially the little ones.

We're back from church and SS.  Rev. Bob, our teacher called us about 8:30 last night and told us he had a cold and could we teach the lesson. Naturally we said yes, but I don't like last minute things like that.  We split it up. I took the first half and then John finished up.  It was on the parable of the unjust judge and the persistent woman. Not my favorite parable, but the underlying meaning is to be persistent with praying and praying for things God will grant.  I brought all the prayers of the world for the Thai soccer players and coach into it as an example.  They received it well. I was glad though when it was over.

One nice thing was that as we were leaving, we saw the ex-wife of one of our SS members who had left him due to depression and mental health problems.  She looked happy and nice, so maybe leaving him was the right thing for her, even though it was hard on him at the time.

I've put a load in the laundry and will put another one in soon. Otherwise, I'm taking it easy.  My knees are bothering me today. Don't know if it is the weather or the exercise yesterday. 

Marilyn, where are you. We haven't heard from you for a long time.  Jeanne, same for you and Ginny.  Sharon
