Congratulations, Sandy, on a good check up.  I always feel better after that kind of check up, too!

P.S.  Hello to you, too, Mary Ann.  You must have been posting while I was reading Sandy's post!

I just lost a long post I did a few minutes ago.  This doesn't happen often, but when it does it is extremely annoying.  I need to get into the shower and dress and finish my morning chores--clean up the kitchen and Maybe do another load of laundry.

Jane, thanks for the advice on checking the shelves for that book.  When I return books, the librarian on desk duty puts 2 0r 3 of them on a "thingie" that weighs them and evidently tells her if any are missing--and no one has ever told me one is missing.  I am going to check the shelves for the book which seems to be missing on Friday.

I have bridge club again today.  We're meeting at our new member's home and Terri will pick me up.  Our 99 y.o. member is back in rehab/hospital again after another fall at her home.

Mary, I'm hoping things are going well with you and your family.  I know it must be hard on all of you.  Keep us posted.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Hello, Buddies. It's almost noon here and I've just returned home from my monthly women's circle meeting.  We had an interesting lesson and the leader knows her text and the content, but tends to talk too long (IMHO!).  However, she does let members who wish to comment do so and that is a good thing.  We are on old testament lessons and that's OK but some of it is tedious (again IMHO!).

Mary, I'm glad you can be with Kate during this time of grief.  I know she is glad that you can be there for her.   Thoughts and prayers for Kate, you and her family.

I ate enough goodies so I'm not going to fix anything much for lunch.  I have bridge tomorrow and also on Thursday, so this is a busy week.  I also want to make some oatmeal cookies to take to the beach next week and will go shopping as usual with Tim on Friday.  I'm going to take Jane's advice and check the shelves for the book that they think I still have out and it would be overdue if that is true. 

It's chilly, still raining and altogether a miserable morning.  Just the ticket for curling up with a book!

Have a nice afternoon, Every Buddy.

Mary, what sad news--and I know it must have been a shock to Kate and your entire family.  I am so sorry and I am sending you good thoughts.  Does Kate have children nearby?  Thoughts and prayers for her and all of you.

It is pouring rain here this morning and I'm still in my P.J.'s.  Bonney and I had planned to go to the Veterans Park this morning for a memorial service for veterans, but I haven't talked to her yet and am sure we won't be going.  Unless we go to the City Recreation Center where they usually have light snacks following the memorial service.   I'm sure she'll call shortly and we'll decide what to do.

I'm not expecting Tim this morning as I told him I wouldn't be here so I'll probably spend most of the time today reading a library book.  However, according to the library I still have a book that I took out several weeks ago.  I can't find it, so may have to pay to replace the book.  I have a certain place I keep the books I check out and it isn't there!  I'm hoping the library has the book now.

Not much else to report except that it's going to be a depressing, dark and dreary day here.  Have a nice day, Buddies.

Good morning, Buddies.  It's pretty chilly here this morning.  I'm still in my P.Js, but will get dressed shortly.  The wind is blowing and the temperature is way down--but not to the freeze level.  I don't think I'll do much outside today.  Lots of football games to watch, so will do that and read.  Tim told me to search for a library book that he thinks I've misplaced, but I'm pretty sure I returned it.  I'll have to ask the library to check again.   I have a place where I keep the books I check out and when I've finished reading a book, I always put it back into the bag I use to tote books to and from the library. 

Sharon, I don't think the removal of John's cataracts will be a problem.  I had mine done about 10 years ago and my vision has been great ever since.  My eye doctor removed the first one week and the second the next.  He was taking a family vacation to Europe the week following my surgery and wanted to get that done before he left.  John will be amazed at the difference in his vision--and I think very pleased.

Jane, it sounds as if you are well organized for your trip.  I hope the weather is mild for the trek and you'll have good weather for each day down to the beach. 

Joy, I usually spend lots of mornings outside puttering around, but am going to stay inside today.  Just too windy and chilly to be working out there--And I have done most of what has to be done anyway. 

Have a nice weekend, Buddies.

Good morning, Every Buddy looking in this morning.  I've had breakfast and have the dishwasher running now.  I'm expecting Tim around 10:00-10:30.  We'll go to the library and then to Kroger.  We come home so I can put the groceries away and then out to lunch.  Kris eats with us at Niffer's if she is not working a painting job. 

I'm already making plans for my trip to the beach with Stacey, Jon, Alex, and Nic.  I am buying sweet potatoes this morning and will take them with me to the beach so that I can make a sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving dinner. 

My  women's basketball tickets have been here for a while.  I finally checked them and see that I've already missed 3 pre-season games.  I gave my tickets to Tim for the Sunday, Nov. 25.  He and Kris will use them if all goes well with the weather or their other activities.   I should be on my way back home from the beach on that day--but Stacie will be bringing me and Alex back and we'll probably take him back to Birmingham on the 25th.  I think Stacie will bring me home and spend the night here before going back to N.O., but don't know that for sure.

Jane, good luck with the packing.  I hope the snow doesn't hinder your travel plans.  I know you'll be glad to get settled at the beach!

Mary, we had lots of rain yesterday and everything is still wet outside.  I think it may rain again today, but I haven't  checked the weather channel this morning.  Way to go on the Doppler test!  I got out some of my knitting books last night, thinking I might like to knit a few caps and/or mittens/gloves for Alex and Nic.  I don't know if they'll wear them or not.  Young men seem to like to tough it out!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Buddies.  Marilyn, this is a tough time for you and Keith.  You've had a good marriage and I know it's hard to see him declining.  Thoughts and prayers from here for both of you and your families.  I know that his sons have been very supportive of you.

Jane, I hope you and Ray both are feeling well again and know you are looking forward to your winter home at the beach.  Have a safe trip and let us know how you are doing. 

I hope to get a few neglected chores done inside today.  Other than that I'll probably read after lunch.  I had a phone call from a young lady at U. of South Carolina this morning.  She will be visiting here in December and wants to stop by.  Of course she'll be wanting me to make a donation to Carolina.  I do contribute annually, but not in a large amount and when I am unable to do that on my own, they won't get anymore.  Tim is worried about the time when I might have to go into an assisted living or nursing home.  We're trying to make it easy for me to stay here as long as possible.

It rained again last night (a lot!) and everything is wet outside.  I may have to put on my rubber boots if I go out to prune more azaleas.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

I am a fan of Hallmark movies, too.  They have happy endings and the characters are believable.  If there is no movie on TBS that I wish to watch, I'll check out the Hallmark channel.  I'm not fond of movies with terror, grief, etc.

Good morning, Buddies.  I'm not happy with the election results  in Alabama, but I did my best to vote for the ones I thought should be elected.  Tim took me to the cardiologist's office for a check on my pace maker and that went well--and only a short wait, too.  Then he took me to vote, but I might as well stayed home.  Every Republican on the ballot was re-elected, including our district's Congressman who says he is supportive of military veterans, but I receive the MOAA (Military Officers of America) magazine and they publish the votes of all members of Congress on military matters and that sucker puts his name on the bill, then fails to show up for the vote!  I've sent him numerous letters since moving here and he always sends a letter (which he didn't write!) telling me he agrees with me--and never once has voted as he should!!!  And he was overwhelmingly re-elected.  Once I received 2 letters from him in a day--and one said he agreed with me and would vote as I suggested and the other said he could not vote for that bill.  Alabama is wasting good money in sending that SOB back to Congress.

I imagine that the veterans and their families who continue to vote for him don't know his real record of voting.  The MOAA magazine lists the senators and members of congress who do vote on military matters--and he and Senator Shelby often decline to vote!

Enough ranting for today!  Sorry about this, my friends.  It rained again last night and everything outside is wet.  I need to get dressed and go outside to do some more azalea pruning.  Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Every Buddy.  My cleaning ladies (every 2 weeks) were here early this morning and were training a new girl.  She was shy, but I think she might be able to catch on and keep up as my ladies are good trainers and understanding as well as being able to direct her work.  She seems very young, so I hope she appreciates their advice.

Just as I was getting ready to shower my friend on the next street came by.  She didn't see me at the polling place and was ready to take me down there, but Tim had called to tell me that he will take me to see my cardiologist at 1:30 and then to vote, so I chatted with her for a bit and have then showered, shampooed, and dressed for the day.  She's the only other Democrat I know of here in Auburn!

Marilyn, I have both you, Keith, and his sons on my prayer list.  I hope and pray that his insurance will cover all his hospital expenses.  I'm glad you have Freckles as I'm sure she is a comfort.  All of us are praying for you both.

We don't have many candidates running, but I'm hoping the young lady who is opposing our Congressman wins.  He is a total loser.  I have written him many letters about things that concern me, especially my military pension.  He has his employees send me an answer, but the last time I received 2 replies in the same day.  One reply said he'd add his name to the bill and the other said he couldn't support the bill.  I seriously doubt that he'd read either bill!

Mary, we had more rain last night, but I'm not sure how much.  My rain gauge cracked during a freeze last spring and I haven't replaced it.  I'm sorry about the damage to Jesse's fiancĂ©e's family farm.  I haven't watched the weather channel this morning, so don't know of any large damage here.

Not much else to report this morning.  I see some sun peeking out and hope it stays that way the rest of the day!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy!

Good morning, Buddies.  I've been putzin' around this morning and have finally cleaned up the kitchen and dressed for working outside.  I went outside to put my American flag up, thinking today was Veterans Day.  Then I realized the trash men had already been here, so brought the bin up to it's usual parking place. 

I had an e-mail from Tim last night reminding me of my visit with the doctor who did my heart surgery.  We're to go in tomorrow after lunch for a check-up.  Last year when I went for the check-up he had an emergency surgery when he was supposed to be at the clinic and we had to go back later.  My appointment tomorrow is at 1:30 and Tim will take me there and also to my polling place so that I can vote.  I hope this all works out as Tim really doesn't need to spend the time sitting in a waiting room when the doctor is late.  He (Tim) will take me to vote after the appointment.

We had more rain last night and I need to put on my rubber boots and go outside to do some more azalea pruning.  That is NOT my favorite job!

Marilyn, I hope Keith is feeling much better. 

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've had breakfast and read the paper--and have chosen which games I'll watch after lunch.  When I get dressed (I'm still sitting here in P.J.'s!) I'll go outside for some more pruning before the football games start.

Jeanne, I'm sorry for the death in your extended family.  I loved the picture of your great-grands!  I hope you can find a good replacement for your yard man.  Perhaps he could recommend someone?

Sharon, what are you planning for today?  I'm glad you're caught up on laundry and other chores.  Enjoy your day!

Darlene, I hope you can feel better with the new meds.  It's tough to take something and feel worse!  Have you discussed a change with the doctor?  Let us know how the new meds work out.

Mary, I just close my ears when I hear Pence and Trump speak.  I know it's really stupid on my part because it seems their supporters far out number those of us of a more liberal persuasion.  I am appalled at the ordering of so many troops to the Border! The next thing we hear will be accusations of murder against the soldiers who have been sent there to repulse the migrants.  I can't understand why the Republicans/White House don't understand that everyone living in America is either a present day immigrant or a descendant of immigrants.  My paternal ancestors were living on Cape Cod in 1623--two years after the Pilgrims!  Several of them later took boats to Pensacola and came up the Mississippi River to the Ohio and came east to Kentucky and West Virginia.  Good Grief!!!

Marilyn, I hope Keith has a good day and will continue to improve.  Hugs to you and prayers for you both.

Have a nice day Every Buddy.  May your teams win unless they are playing Auburn or South Carolina!

I'm returning quite a few of the library books I didn't read this week.  Too much going on here with Halloween and bridge here yesterday.  I did get 2 Dewey Lambdin naval novels featuring the Revolutionary war hero who has been away from home more than 2 years.  He's a rogue, but a lovable one!

Jane and Darlene, thanks for the info on your meds.  So far I'm not on potassium but do take a heart med as well as vitamins.  I'll be seeing my GP in December and we will review the meds I do take.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Every Buddy.  I hope you survived the "ghosts and goblins" last night.  I didn't get very many, so am glad I had my favorite candy for treats as I have a bag of snickers and butterfingers left.  I try to ration myself to only one bar of either every afternoon.

Marilyn, I'm glad Freckles is such a comfort to you.  I can empathize with you.  My dog Stubby who has been gone now a couple of years sure made my life better after Bob died.  I'm keeping you and Keith in my thoughts and prayers. 

Sharon, I'm glad the roofer is competent and it sounds as if he'll do a good job.  I know you'll be glad to get that job done! 

I have my card tables set up and the "prize" money out, so I'm ready for the bridge club at 12:30.  I made Swedish Oatmeal cookies yesterday which I'll serve with ice cream.  They are usually my go to Cookie, but I had a tough time with them yesterday.  I usually get about 50 out of that recipe and they were so fragile this time, that a lot of them were broken.  I have enough though for one large cookie per player.  I'll have a dish of ice cream, too. 

Last night I had only 2 trick or treaters--most of the kids in my neighborhood go uptown where the merchants give out candy.  Neither of the young girls who came to my house live in this neighborhood.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.  Jane, I hope you're feeling better today.

Good morning, Every Buddy.  I've been up for a while and have dug around and found my Halloween sweatshirt, so I'm ready for Ghouls and Goblins this evening.  I need to put a stool by my front door so I can put the candy I will give the kiddies (and hopefully most of them will be small ones and not large teens!).

I spent yesterday cleaning my oven and baking cookies.  It had been a while since I cleaned the oven and it turned into a major chore.  I'm glad to get that behind me at least for a while.

I need to make some more cookies--I didn't finish that yesterday and still have batter in the fridge which I'd like to get baked today.  I have bridge here tomorrow, so I have to set up my card tables and get the cards out, too.  We've changed the rules for prize money, so I'll have to find the correct change to give the winners.

Have a nice day, every Buddy--and watch out for the ghouls and goblins!

I hated rhubarb when I was a young girl and living with my sisters, grandmother, and her niece.  Grandma always had a dish of overcooked, slimy rhubarb on the kitchen table.  It was disgusting, IMO, and I wouldn't eat it.  Then when I married my husband and we were living in the boondocks near Brunswick, Maine, our landlord had a nice patch of rhubarb.  To please my husband, I found a recipe for rhubarb pie and made it for him.  I was astonished at how tasty it was. It seems that the overcooking of my grandma was the problem!

Good morning, Sharon, and Every Buddy looking in.  I'm still sitting here in my P.J.'s but need to get busy.  It's my turn to have the Thursday bridge group here and I want to make some oatmeal cookies to have on the snack table.  I'm almost caught up on yard work, although all my azaleas (both front and back yard) need pruning, so might get a bit of that done today.  And Sharon, yardwork is never finished here!  Too many trees dropping leaves, etc.!

Jane, I hope you're feeling better today.  Nothing worse than a late season cold!

Marilyn, I am also hoping Keith is doing well at home.  Take care of yourself while caring for him.

I need to get dressed.  I want to get started on baking Swedish Oatmeal cookies.  Last time I made them they were a flop--so I'm hoping that whatever I did has disappeared this time!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

P.S. Marilyn, I do hope Keith can go back to the hospital for a day or two and you'll be able to get some rest.  Take care of yourself and try to rest, too!

Sandy, I was happy for the Red Sox, too!  When I was a young married woman with one child and pregnant with another, another Navy wife and I did things together with our kids.  She had a little boy who was bout 6 months younger than my oldest--and his father (also a Navy pilot) was a Red Sox fan.  Little C.J. could say Red Sox before any other words!  So our son also liked the Red Sox!  I was a Celtics fan, myself, and on our second tour in Brunswick, I would take our boys down to Boston for a Saturday game.  (My hubby was usually in Newfoundland, Spain, or Sicily with his squadron!)  We loved the Navy, but it was tough on Moms who were alone a lot.


P.S.  I'm voting Blue, too!

Good morning, Buddies.  I've been up for a while, had breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen.  I had a phone call recently from the oncologist I've seen for lots of years down in Montgomery because I hadn't come in for my annual mammogram.  Last year Tim took me down there on a Friday--and we were there more than 4 hours--and my oncologist was out of town and his second in command, a woman, checked my breasts.  All was well, but Tim doesn't have the time to take me down there.  I had my mammo here at a clinic about a half mile from me--didn't have to wait long and I will see Kris's oncologist later for an annual check up.  It takes more than an hour down and another hour back from Montgomery, plus by the time I get there, more than 40 other patients were always ahead of me.  I am seeing my GP the first week in December for his annual check-up.

I was 81 in March and no one has suggested that I am finished with Mammograms.  Now that we have a clinic within a little over a mile near me, we'll stick with that until my GP or the mammo clinic suggests I no longer need one.  My insurance pays for it, so I'm happy enough to go in for the "big squeeze"!

I have more yard work waiting--and it's sunny today although chilly--so I'll head outside soon to do some more pruning/cutting back on my azaleas.

Jane, I hope you're feeling better this morning.  I know you enjoyed your company, but it can be tiring, too.  Take care!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Great hat, Bubble!  I'll bet you're very well decorated for Halloween.  I have a large ceramic pumpkin and my son got it out for me yesterday.  I put it on a high stool and will light a candle in it on Halloween night.  I don't expect many Trick or Treaters, though, as our downtown merchants association sponsors Trick or Treat snacks on the main street across from Auburn University.  Lots of parents prefer taking their kids up there.  I'll have only 2 or 3 families who will "trick or treat" me--so I know I'll have leftover candy!

Do you expect little ghosts and goblins on Halloween?

Good morning, Buddies.  I've been dressed for a while, but have been doing laundry.  I just put the last load into the dryer and will go outside to do some pruning while I wait for it to dry.  I don't have anything else planned for the day except football games.  Auburn isn't playing today, but South Carolina and West Virginia U. are playing and I'll probably watch some of each game.

We had more rain yesterday and the shrubs and grass are wet--but I'll just put on my rubber boots and trim the last of the shrubs in the front yard. 

Marilyn, thank you for the update on Keith.  It sounds as if his memory has returned and he's eager to come home.  I know he misses his surroundings at home and will be much happier at home.  Keep us posted on his recovery.  Thoughts and prayers for you both as I know he misses you and home.

Have a good day, Every Buddy.  Jane, I hope you're feeling better this morning.

Good morning, Buddies.  Tim was here about 10:00 and we went to the library and Kroger.  Home to put the groceries away and then to Niffers to meet Kris for lunch.  I had my usual BLT and I forget what they had.  I think Tim had loaded potato soup and a salad, but I don't know about Kris.  It's still drizzling here and I'll be inside the rest of the day unless it clears up.  I have one section of the front yard that needs lots of pruning.

I only got 2 books at the library.  I had bridge 2 afternoons last week and that cut down on my reading.  I still have a couple of books from last week I need to finish.  As soon as I finish my S&F forums, I'll start a library book I didn't return this morning.  I had bridge games 2 afternoons this week and that cut into my reading time.

Jane, I'm sorry about your cold showing up just as you are expecting your Nephew and his wife.  What are you taking for the symptoms?  I hope you can sleep well and take it as easy as you can with company visiting.

Marilyn, I also hope Keith can come home, if not today, certainly soon.  It's tough to schedule hospital visits when you have a busy schedule--and I guess he'd be pretty distressed if you didn't get there to visit.  Have his sons visited him at the hospital?

Mary, is it raining up your way?  When Tim arrived this morning, I'd been slow at eating breakfast, cleaning the kitchen, and getting dressed.  I rushed around getting dressed--then we went to the library to turn in some books and get a couple more.  We went to Kroger next, then home to put the groceries away, then to Niffers to meet Kris for lunch.

Sharon, I hope the second roofer shows up soon and has a good price for the work you need to do.  You may remember that we had a bad storm last year and I had to have the entire roof replaced.  Tim had a roofer friend who gave me the "mother-in-law" price and I only had to pay $10,000.  The men who cut down the neighbor's tree which fell on my roof charged me $2500 to remove the parts that fell on the roof and Tim did some repair on the gutters where it fell.  I think because there were so many homes needing repairs that the men who cleared my roof took advantage of the crisis for many of us.

Hello to every Buddy looking in and to those who are missing today.

Good morning, Sharon, and whoever is looking in.  I've had breakfast, read the paper, made a grocery list for tomorrow (we get the Kroger sales list on Thursday!), and am still in my PJ's.  I think it might rain here later today, so I need to get dressed and outside.  I have a lot of pruning, cutting back of shrubs in my front yard.  However, yesterday, I finally got the back yard tidier, so I'm giving up back there!  BTW, Tim has programed my thermostat and all I needed to do was move it to the other setting.  It has had to come on in the late afternoon a couple of rainy days, but other than that, not needed yet.

Marilyn, I'm glad Keith's surgery went well.  Although I know he must want to come home ASAP, it might be best if he could stay one more day.  Keep us posted.  Have his sons been down for the surgery?

Jane, I'm glad Ray feels the exercises are helping his balance problem.  I know it must be a worry to you and to him when he is uncertain of it.

Mary, what fun to have an Aldi near you.  I'll be looking at Avocados tomorrow, too, but I don't think they'll be 39 cents!  As far as I know, there is no Aldi's here.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Jane, I don't envy you one bit!  I was still teaching school after we'd moved to our farm.  My husband would have my counters lined up with tomatoes and whatever else needed to be canned when I came home from school.  I was already tired but managed to help get it into jars and into the water bath and whatever else needed to be done.  I think we gave jars of tomatoes to everyone in our church!  But I did enjoy the use of the tomatoes for soup and other dishes once they were in jars.  The same for cabbage which we made into kraut!  We lived in Alabama after he retired as a Navy Pilot and one of our church friends who was from Pennsylvania and had married a local "girl" always asked me if I would bring my sauer kraut dish to church suppers.  He made sure there were no leftovers of that dish after the supper!

Good morning, Buddies.  I'm still in P.J.'s, but plan to do a little more leaf raking before I shower and dress for bridge this afternoon.  Terri will pick me up about 12:45.  I hope I get better cards today than I did yesterday.

I need to do some pruning of my azaleas out back, but that won't get done today.  Tomorrow is finally an at home day for me this week, so hopefully I can get started on that.  I love my yard and enjoy working in it, but sometimes, it just gets to be too much!

Jane, good luck with bridge today.  I had lousy cards yesterday and hoped for better, of course.  It is depressing when every deal leaves me with nothing worth playing!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Just a quickie now that I'm home from bridge at Azalea Place.  I had so so cards and didn't win anything.  I ate fish for lunch, but didn't enjoy the over-cooked veggies--and I don't think they served any dessert today.  At least I didn't get any.  They usually serve ice cream.

I can't find my cane and have tried to locate it at Chik'n Salad Chik, but no one answered the phone there.  Tim will not be happy that I've lost it!  He'll be over on Friday to take me to the library, Kroger shopping, home to put up the groceries, and then out to eat lunch.  I'm going to try Chik'n Salad Chik again about 5:00.

I hope you've all had a nice day.  I hope Marilyn will come in soon to let us know how Keith is doing.
