Good morning, Sharon and Darlene and whoever is looking in this morning.  I've been outside trimming azaleas, but am far from finished.  I can only take a short while out there--just too hot and muggy to completely prune the azaleas!  I need to shower and get the itchiness taken care of!

As far as the SS class goes, I only have to teach about every third week.  If the 2 fifth girls show up the next time I'm there, I plan to take them outside the classroom and give them a lecture about being a good example, etc., plus the warning if they act like they did this past week, I will call their parents!  One of them even got up from the table where we were working and laid down on a love seat in the classroom and yacked with the other one the whole time!  I think having 4 different teachers (with probably different methods of keeping order) is part of the problem.  At the end of the semester if things haven't improved, I'll tell our C.E. director (who is a wimp!) that I can't teach the class effectively and she'll just have to get someone else. She even came in and started a video which none of the students watched toward the end of the class.  Times have changed since I was teaching school AND Sunday School classes every Sunday!

Darlene, I was very upset about the older kids in the class.  It's for 3rd -5th grade kids and the younger ones listened and then worked on crafts, but the older 2 just were totally disruptive!  I think having 3 grade levels in one class is not a good idea!

Not much else going on here today.  After my shower I'll probably read until time to fix lunch.  Jane, if you're on the road, safe driving!  Take care, Buddies.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've spent the last very hot 45 minutes pruning pyracantha--and still have far more to do, but I'm already wringing wet and my arms are itchy from carrying the clippings down to the curb.  The trash men were coming up the street and I wanted to get at least one pile out of here today!

I'm expecting Tim sometime this morning to check on me.  I hope he'll have a minute or two to put my new license plate on.  After much discussion with the lady who called to tell me I couldn't renew the military plate, she finally looked at the regulations and sent me an apology and the military plate.  However, it's a new design and doesn't say U.S. Navy!  This is disappointing, but at least it is legal for me to have it and I am proud of being a military widow.  Of course I'd rather have had Bob live a lot longer, but this is one way that I can pay tribute to his 20 years of service--and the 20 years the boys and I were alone while he was deployed on overseas duty (usually 9 months of each deployed year!).

The SS class duty yesterday was the pits.  It consisted of pupils in grades 3-5.  The third and fourth grade kids were co-operative, but two fifth graders were very disruptive.  Thank goodness I only have to teach there every 3 or 4 weeks.  I plan to talk to the fifth grade girls privately next time and tell them I will call their parents if they don't co-operate.  I was shocked at their rudeness.  I don't like the curriculum either.  I'd printed out work sheets at the library and only a few of the younger ones completed them.  I do think the switching of teachers every week is part of the problem.

Sharon, I'm sorry about the wakeful night.  Also very sorry about your friend who moved to Orangeburg and now has cancer.  I hope her treatments include pain relief and that she can be made comfortable.  I don't do facebook but know that those who do will enjoy your pictures.

Not much else to report.  I have my dishwasher running and will have to put the dishes away later and will probably do a load of wash.  I hope Jane and Ray had good weather and a nice time with their relative, plus a safe drive home.

Have a nice day, Buddies.

More rain here, Buddies.  I did walk over to the library about 10:45 as my printer needs a new cartridge and I needed to print out the SS lessons for this week and also for the 4th week from tomorrow.  I found a cartridge, but will ask Tim to replace it for me.  I have the SS lesson prepared, cookies for bribing good behavior, and hopefully my nerves are calm now!

Jeanne, I've taught every grade from 1-6 and also bookkeeping and typing to 10th, 11th, and 12 grades.  I prefer first grade, but the only place I got to do that more than 1 year was at a private school in Albuquerque.  I team taught there for 4 years.  I taught reading and science and the other teachers taught music, math, special themes like Indians and southwestern customs.  It was a great school, classes confined to no more than 20 students. 

Jane, it sounds like you're having a good time--and I'm assuming it's cooler up there than at home.  It's still terribly hot here, although more rain this afternoon cooled it down for a while. 

Mary, I don't have a rain gauge anymore because it split when we had a big frost in January and I keep forgetting to get a new one.  But we've had more rain this summer than I've seen since Bob and I moved to the farm in 1979.  We had lots of dry summers with occasional rain showers, so lots of buckets carried up from the creek to water the grapes and blueberries.

Sharon, I hope you were able to get a battery installed in your car.  Nothing's worse than being without a car!  I'd forgotten that when you live in a planned community that there are rules about what and where to plant.  I just stick stuff where I want it and so far my neighbors don't seem to mind.  At least no complaints.

I've showered and shampooed and was hoping to watch Downtown Abbey and Doc Martin tonight, but my PBS station is having another fund raiser, so I'll probably read one of my library books or watch an early hallmark movie.

Have a nice evening, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Every Buddy.  I'm dressed now after breakfast and paper reading.  Tim will be over in about an hour to take me to the library, Kroger shopping, and we'll go out to lunch, too.  I'll probably spend a good bit of the afternoon preparing for the SS lesson I have to teach on Sunday.  I'm a bit anxious about it, but think I can manage.  It's been quite a while since I taught 3-5 grade children.  I'm planning to bribe them with chocolate chip cookies (made by Mrs. Kroger!).  If I can get my printer working, I'll print out a work sheet for the SS class, but if not will go over to the library tomorrow to print it out.

It rained again last night and is a bit cloudy this morning, so we may get more rain.  This is unusual for Alabama this time of year.  The grass in my back yard has been growing way too fast!

Mary, I'm glad to hear that Margaret is home and improving.  I know that must be a relief.  Jesse had been a BIG HELP!  Keep us posted.

Jeanne, I'm glad to hear you're having some cooler weather.  We've had very high temperatures, but luckily a lot of rain, too. 

Sharon, I am nervous about teaching the SS class.  There are 15 children on the list and some of them are rather precocious.  I'm taking the cookies and ginger ale as a bribe.  I don't think the plan to have 4 different teachers each term is a good one--I think each one will have different ways of teaching and some kids will respond differently to each one.  Oh well, I should never have volunteered. I thought I'd be teaching every Sunday for 6 weeks.  I was the only primary grade teacher to show up for the orientation session and it was not mentioned then about the every 3 or 4 week schedule.

Darlene, good for you for helping your brother with the injections.  I can sympathize with your both.  I think it would be very hard for anybody to give themselves an injection.  Does he live close to you?

Not much else to report this morning.  Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Darlene, good for you for helping your brother with the injections.  I'm not sure I could inject myself or anyone else.  I always shut my eyes and turn my head when I get one at the doctor's office!

Sharon, if I can't get the printer to work today, I'll walk over to the library on Saturday and print what I need.  Thank goodness I only have to teach that class every 4th week.  I think when the term is over in December, I'll ask to be relieved of the duty.  I don't think having 3 different teachers to rotate in a month is a good idea.  I'll use my age as an excuse!

I hope Jane and Ray are having a good time.  Where are our other Buddies today?

Jeanne, I'm so sorry that you and your family had to suffer through the terrible tragedy of WWII.  I'm glad you survived.  War is terrible as we all know, but even though we read about it here in America, it was hard to realize how bad it was.  I was 6 when Pearl Harbor was bombed--I think it was a Sunday.  We'd come home from church and were listening to the news when President Roosevelt came on the radio with his famous "This day will live in infamy speech".  I also remember the day that Japan surrendered as it was about 4:00 in the afternoon.  Our grandmother got us dressed and we walked up to town to attend a prayer service of Thanksgiving for the end of the war.   I was about 8 years old then.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've had breakfast and read the paper and am now ready to work on my Sunday School lesson for this up-coming Sunday.  I haven't used my printer in ages, so need to see if it will work for me.  I have a student list of about 25 students, but don't expect that many to attend every time.  However, I will only teach about every 3rd week, so will find out.  Lots of siblings in the class because it includes grades 3-5.  I need to print at least 1, perhaps 2 of the work sheets the curriculum guide has for class use.

This has me in a nervous tizzy--I'm worried that my printer won't work and a jillion other things.  Plus one of the students is a behavior problem (and the daughter of one of Tim's old roommates) and I'm expecting a bit of nonsense from her.  I  plan to get her to be my "helper" (pass out papers, etc.) and hope that works.

I'm off to see if my printer will work.  Sharon, your trip sounds like lots of fun--I'm so glad you could go.  Jane, have a great trip and I hope the weather is fantastic!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Jane and Every Buddy looking in.  My cleaning ladies were here this morning and my house is spic and span for a few days.  I keep it tidy, but am afraid I don't clean under heavy stuff and count on them to pick up the slack.  I have the sheets in the dryer and hope to get out back to mow shortly.

Jane, enjoy your lunch with the Iowa/Texas friends.  Also the long weekend in Northern Wisconsin.  Hopefully it will be cool and pleasant weather while you're up there. 

Not much else going on here.  I started a David Baldacci murder mystery this morning and will try to help King and Maxwell solve the murder this afternoon.  Baldacci is one of my favorites--but I've read almost all of them now.  Tim has pointed me in the direction of several other authors who write mysteries so I've been trying some of them.

Have a happy Tuesday, Every Buddy.  Mary, I'm glad to hear that the news about Margaret was good.  Keep us posted.

Good morning, Buddies.  So far, I've had breakfast, read the paper, and brought the empty trash containers back up the driveway.  I'm moving pretty slowly this morning.  I stayed up until after Doc Martin on PBS and then read until about midnight.  Any other Doc Martin fans here?  He's such a Dilbert about some things, but a good doctor despite his gruffness. In this episode, his Auntie Joan had died (no funeral, so I'm wondering if perhaps the actress herself might have died).  He was thrilled about the baby, but honestly I think he was carrying a dummy when he had to care for it--he sure didn't hold it very  well.

Tim just left.  He always comes by on Mondays to check on me.  We went over a bit of paperwork and chatted for a while.  He was off to check on a new part for his truck, so is hopeful of getting it fixed soon.  I think the part was ordered some time last week.

Jane, I'm glad the prednisone has helped.  I think "Jane Day" is a great idea and hope you enjoyed every minute of it.  Keep us posted on your condition--I hope the pain is now in the past!

Marilyn, you've been busy in your kitchen.  How long will it take you to use 5 pounds of garlic?  I guess if it's frozen, you can use it whenever you wish.  I know you'll be happy after your cataract surgery.  I had mine done in 2 weeks.  One for the first eye and another for the second.  My eye doctor was taking his family to Europe for a 2 week trip and wanted to get me and some other patients finished before he left.

Mary, thoughts and prayers for Margaret's successful surgery.  Let us know as soon as you hear from her about the results.  I know you must be anxious to get the results.

Alpiner, thanks for posting the picture of you, hubby, and the beautiful car.  What fun you must have with it!

Not much else to report today, Buddies.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've been up but not dressed yet for quite a while.  Just not able to get up to "snuff" so far this morning.  As soon as I dress I need to go out back and pick up more pears so that I can mow the back yard if the grass ever gets dry.  We've had more rain this summer than we've had since we moved back to Alabama in 1979.    I don't have grass in the front--just shrubs and flowering bushes.  Too many large oak trees out there--and it's a relief to not have to mow that!

Mary, I hope you solved the mystery of the missing cleaning lady.  My cleaning service only comes every 2 weeks, so I try to keep things tidy (picked up and hidden!) during the time they aren't here.  They change my sheets, dust furniture (quickly) and damp mop all the floors.  I have hardwood floors in every room except for tile in both bath rooms which they mop.  I'm most grateful for the sheet changing as I have a very heavy mattress on a queen size bed and it's not easy to change the sheets by myself.  Congratulations on the new Master Points!

Sharon, your trip to Joc's family sounds like a winner.  I know you'd like to see them more often, but I guess lots of us have the same problem of distance.  Of course my grandsons are in college now and I'm not traveling with them anymore and I miss that.  Stacie is planning a big family get together (according to Tim) at the beach over Thanksgiving, so I guess we'll see them then.

Jane, I'm sorry about the pain, too.  Hopefully the x-rays and blood test will give your doctors a clue to what is going on and how to deal with it.  Keep us posted, please.

Happy Saturday, Every Buddy!

Good morning, Buddies.  It's going to be another scorcher today, so I'm going outside shortly to do a little weeding and to maybe mow my back yard, but that will depend on whether I have enough shade to do the mowing.  I left my cane at Carolyn's yesterday and she is coming by about noon while doing errands and will bring it back to me.  I've read all of last Friday's library books, so have now re-read 2 of my favorites by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.  I'll have to find another favorite for this afternoon and evening.

Jane, my Thursday bridge also plays for a quarter, too.  Everybody puts one in and the winner gets $1, second 75 cents, and low gets her quarter back.  If I get any back, I put it in my quarter jar to use the next time.

Sharon, taco salad sounds like a winner.  I'm not doing much cooking anymore--eating lots of sandwiches, fruit, and some Special choice dinners.  I'm a bit ashamed of myself, but not enough to spend lots of time in the kitchen.

Marilyn, I hope your Ortho appointment went well yesterday.  I can sympathize about the PT because after my fall I had to have therapists visit me at the rehab facility and then later at home.  It was painful at first, but I gradually healed and although I still need a brace on my right leg, I'm able to walk OK and do everything I want except drive my car!  Good luck with getting the title to the house and car as you'll need it.  Perhaps his sons can help with that.  They owe you at least that much.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Buddies.  I'm still sitting here in my PJ's, but plan to shower soon.  I'm caught up on outside work except for trimming the butterfly bush, but will let that go for a day or two.  We had more rain yesterday and of course that will mean more weeds!  I'm playing bridge this afternoon and am hoping for some good cards!  Olyne and Sarah will pick me up about 12:45.

Sharon, I'm sorry about the cold.  You are always so very busy and I expect while you're out and about you encounter people with cold germs.  I hope you have a chance to rest today--and drink lots of fluids. 

Mary, I'm sorry that Margaret is facing surgery, but hope that it will relieve her pain.  It's good that Matt and Jesse are nearby and can help out.  I know you're worried and I'm keeping her and your entire family in my prayers.  Keep us posted.

Jane, I'm glad the dental visit went well--and Woo Hoo on getting a new, young and handsome dentist! 

I'm off to trim my butterfly bush and then shower, dress, and read until time to fix some lunch.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've been outside pulling weeds--just managed to finish one trug full and have called it a day.  It's already hot out there!  I don't have a plan for the rest of the day, but think I will try to do a little trimming in my flower beds when they are shaded.

For years I've been donating to the Susan Komen foundation for Breast Cancer.  This past week, some women in Hampton, NY, called asking me for a donation.  I am sure they got my name from Susan G. Komen Foundation.  I am going to write a letter to the Komen Foundation and tell them to take me off their list.  I am really ticked about this and don't plan to give to either of these groups, but only to my local BC group.  Has this happened to any of you?

Marilyn, have you talked to Keith's sons about the condition of your home?  It seems to me that if you could sell and move to a smaller place it might be easier for you.  You have certainly worked hard to keep Keith comfortable and are taking good care of him.  They need to step up and help out.

Jane, I'm sorry about the paperwork, but it seems inevitable, doesn't it?  Tim was happy to pick up my car and hopefully his truck will be good to go next week.  We decided after I fell and can no longer drive the car, that we'd keep it anyway as it is much more comfortable for me to get in and out than his truck.  Good luck with the rheumatologist and keep us posted.

Jeanne, it's good to see you back.  BTW, I love your hat.  It will keep the sun off your face and is very attractive.

Have a happy day, Every Buddy.

I take my re-usable paper bags to my church.  We have a group of members, mostly women, who work at our local food bank's store for needy seniors once a month.  These members take the donated Kroger bags to the food bank store and they are re-used so that the seniors can take their groceries home.  I'm happy to know the bags are re-used and not thrown away.

Good morning, Sharon and Every Buddy looking in.  I'm still sitting here in my P.J.'s but need to get dressed to go outside and finish the weeding project I left on Saturday.  Yesterday Olyne had company and I wasn't able to get to church, so just goofed around, stayed inside, and read a couple of my new library books.

I was still eating breakfast when Tim called and asked if he could use my car for a few days.  His work truck is having problems and needs to visit the shop.  Kris dropped him off on her way to work and he will probably use my car until Friday when we eat out, do shopping, library, etc.

I need to get dressed and get outside before it gets much hotter.  Have a nice day, Every Buddy.  I hope all are feeling well today.

I hate mimosa trees.  My neighbors had one for years which was lovely when in bloom, but it sent hundreds of baby mimosas into my yard and no matter how often I dig them up, more come.  Putting poison on them doesn't work very well.  And I hate to get that sprayer out to fix them.  It involves putting on long sleeved shirts and long pants and Alabama summers are just too hot for that!

The pink blooms are pretty, but the seedlings grow way too fast!

Good morning, Jane, Marilyn, and Sandy, and every Buddy looking in.  It is almost 11:00 and I am still in my P.J.'s.  Olyne has weekend company and can't pick me up for church, so I'm going to dress and pick up some fallen limbs and cut back some weeds that I started on the other day.  Other than that I'll stay inside and read.

Marilyn, I'm sorry about the things that need to be fixed at your home.  I know it's frustrating that you must make lots of decisions about it and set priorities for getting it done.  It's tough that Keith is not able to help with decision making.  You and he are in my prayers this morning.

Sandy, that's good advice about the mold.  I am allergic to it, so try to keep my house dry and clean when we have lots of rain (and we've had a heap of it this summer--which is unusual.  We usually don't get much until mid-September, Early October.)  I do need to clean the vents in my home--which means unscrewing the vent plates, taking the screen thingies out and washing them and then re-inserting them when they've dried outside on the porch.  YUCK!

Mary, how are you today--and what will you be doing today?  After I finish the little bit of yard work I plan to do (picking up downed limbs and pulling a few weeds) I plan to get started on another of my new library books.

Jane, the "Carriage Glow" events sounds like it could have been interesting if it were better organized.  I agree that while the costumes and carriages may have been interesting it certainly must have been boring to wait so long to see the "Glow"!

I need to get some clothes on and get outside to get those downed limbs down to the curb.  I'd also like to get the patch of weeds I started clearing yesterday finished--but it will depend on how hot it is out there!  It's hard to tell when my AC comes on frequently to keep the house cool.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

As a high school graduation gift, I took my oldest grandson to NYC when he was on his spring break during his senior year.  We did all the touristy things there, but one of his favorites was going to Grand Central Station.  There was so much activity and so many people it was almost overwhelming.  He lives in New Orleans when he is not in college and thought it was a great place.  Two years later, his younger brother didn't want to go there and I was disappointed!

Good morning, Buddies.  I'm showered, shampooed, dressed, and ready for pick up by our church's C.E. director.  I've agreed to teach the grades 3-5 Sunday School class for the next year.  I've taught almost every grade of SS including adult levels, but I prefer the children.  They certainly bring a different perspective to Sunday School!

Yesterday's funeral and reception for our friend Nancy was very touching.  Lots of children, grandchildren, and great-grands were in attendance.  Our senior pastors are still at Montreat leading summer classes of some sort, so our new AU Student pastor officiated.  Most of the other attendees were about my age and like me had been friends of Nancy during earlier years.  She's been living with her daughter in Wisconsin for almost 10 years now.  We tried to talk on the phone about once or twice a month, but she began to lose her memory and our phone calls fell off.   When I first moved here Nancy, Minnie, Bonney, and I went to Brick Oven Pizza every Friday evening and then to one of our homes to play bridge.  Now Bonney and I are the only 2 remaining members of that bridge group.

Sharon, I did finish a paper back book that I'd started before Tim picked me up for lunch, library, and Kroger shopping, so today when I come home from the meeting, I have 6 new ones to choose from.  I need to do some more weeding, but by noon, it will be too hot to work outside!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Good morning, Buddies.  I've read the paper, showered and dressed in "soft clothes" for a quick lunch with Tim, Kroger shopping, and a trip to the library to return and get new books.  I have a funeral at 2:00 of a dear friend who has been living the last 6 or 7 years with her daughter's family in Wisconsin.  She will be buried here in town and the memorial service is at our church at 2:00.  So we need to get our errands done and get me home in time to get dressed for the service and reception.

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

I keep a cell phone, but only charge it if I'm going out of town.  My ATT service gives me free long distance anywhere in the U.S.  (I realize that they are charging me more for my entire service--but my sisters both live far away and we try to talk at least twice or three times a month.  I am not charged for the long distance calls.).  I am confused, though, about the new terms they posted on my Bellsouth account this week.

I guess I'll leave it like it is and hope my son who lives nearby can figure it out for me.

Good morning, Jane and Mary and whoever is looking in now.  I've had breakfast, cleaned up the kitchen, showered and dressed for bridge and have a load of wash in the washer which I will soon put into the dryer and hope they are dry and put away before my ride comes to take me to bridge at Bonney's.  When I called Olyne to see if she could pick me up, she told me she's already taking 3 subs--but can squeeze me in!

Mary, it's cooler here, too.  We had lots of rain late yesterday afternoon and even into the night.  I'm glad you got some rain, too.  Remind me again what the CBD oil is made of?  It's great if it's giving you some pain relief!

I need to poke around in the kitchen and make a sandwich.  Bonney will probably serve dessert sometime during the bridge game. 

Jane, I'm sorry about the flare up and hope the rheumatologist  can get to you more quickly.  It's tough to have constant pain and nothing to do about it.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the rheumatologist  will have a cancelation soon and will call you in.

Have a good day, Every Buddy, and check in and let us know how you're doing!

Sharon, you must have been writing while I posted.  I'm having a big problem with my Bellsouth ATT account.  They are changing all their rules and I don't know what to do.  I have some of my financial e-mail accounts on that account and I guess Tim will have to help me change that.  I don't want more people/accounts seeing that kind of business.  BTW, we got lots of rain last night and more is expected today.  This is the wettest summer we've had since we moved to the farm in 1979!

I have Bell for some of my e-mail and they have made huge changes in the way I understand my service.  I don't want anything new and have no idea how to get them to understand.  I also have ATT telephone service which I want to keep as I can call both my sisters long distance without an extra charge--according to my understanding I can call anyone in the continental U.S. without a long distance charge.  Any suggestions from any other ATT users?  There are a couple of local companies I could switch to, but it would involve changing all my Bellsouth e-mail accounts.


P.S.  I use Hotmail for my family and a few close friends.  I've been using ATT for business mostly.

Jack, you have another winner in Mimi!  I sure miss my Stubby, but had decided that I didn't want to leave Tim and Kris a dog.  Their dog is on her last legs and I'm sure Kris will replace her immediately, but Tim is a bit reluctant to do that.

Bubble, thanks for the update on Don, although it is a bit sad.  It's tough when one lives alone and has to move to a new situation.  I'm sure a lot of his loneliness is that he misses you as well as his previous very active life.

Good morning, Buddies.  My cleaning ladies were here this morning--changed my sheets, damp mopped all the floors and dusted furniture--all very quickly.  The two of them have it down to a science as they usually do 4 or 5 more homes than mine on my cleaning day.

I still have to go outside and do some more weeding--I hope to finish that shortly and plan to spend the rest of the day inside as we're having another scorcher today!  It will probably get up into the mid to high 90's today unless we get some rain this afternoon.

Jane, you have my sympathy for having to listen to squabbling while on your family vacation.  Several years ago I visited Anne and Richard and Anne's youngest daughter and her husband were there.  The husband and Anne had certain differences about his and her daughter's business and all of the rest of us were very uncomfortable!  My grandmother taught us to keep our family squabbles inside the family and we had very few of them.  I hope your blood tests go well.

Jeanne, it's good to see you back.  It's been quite a while and I wondered if you were traveling and hoping you were not ill.  Tim and I visited a new lawyer--a female--last summer who helped me put my estate in order and that was a big relief.  All 3 sons will share equally and if my youngest son dies before me, his sons will receive his share.  Bill and Tim have no children of their own, although Bill has raised his step-son since he was about 4 years old.  I don't know what Bill has planned for Andy, his step-son--but I think if Bill dies first, Andy  will inherit his share from his mother.  Jon's share will go to Alex and Nic.

Enough gruesome talk!  I have done a little weeding since the cleaning ladies left and I have a huge patch of tall grass between my house and the neighbors.  So I'm going outside now to get it cleaned up.  Then I'll knock off ship's work and start another library book.  I finished the Lee Child "Reacher" mystery that I started yesterday.  I have 2 Baldacci's left and will start one after lunch.

Sharon, you have a busy day planned, too.  Have a good one!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.

Marilyne, I'm glad to hear you are OK and hope you stay that way.  Those fires look voracious and there is so much destruction in California.  I pray that the fires will be extinguished soon.

Alpiner, beautiful work--and I know a young girl will be very happy to receive it!

Good morning, Buddies.  I am wringing wet as I just spent 45 minutes pulling weeds in the space between my yard and my next door neighbors.  They pay a yard service to cut their grass and trim, but the yard men only go halfway between their yard and mine.  Needless to say I only got about half of what they left and will need to go out there again tomorrow morning.  It's just too hot to stay out there long enough to get it all done.

Not much else to report.  I'm planning to shower as soon as I cool down and need to wash my hair again, although I washed it yesterday.  I am a sweaty mess!  I hope Jane and Ray are safely at home now.
