Lindancer - Yes, it was sunset.

It was a reflection, as the cloud was in the east and not the west

Mary Ann - Kendrick is probably happy just to be with you. Animals are like that.  :) Barney (my SIL's dog) is warming up to us but is very happy to have his Dad here for the night.

Johann - So glad you posted in here to let us know how you are. I've been thinking about you while I watch the storm news on TV. Such wild water on the coast already!

Right now we are babysitting my sister-in-law's dog, Barney. My SIL (Chape's youngest sister) and her husband live near Tampa and were on their way home from a month in Vermont. She had been having problems on the way down (had symptoms of a mini-stroke, etc.) so she went to our local hospital. She's been there since noon yesterday and they've done all kinds of tests. So far they haven't found anything serious and we're waiting to hear from her after she sees the neurologist. Barney was a rescue dog and he's missing them so much! He's such a sweet dog.

So far I haven't had any problem with doctors or hospitals here or back in Vermont. Right now I have a wonderful primary care doctor.

The opioid epidemic is terrible. It's especially bad in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Larry - I hope the heavy rains and winds die down before they reach your area. Looks like the main problem will be flooding. As you know, my cousin lives in N. Augusta also. Think I'll call him tonight.

Mary Ann - Kendrick is a beautiful cat. I'm partial to yellow cats. :) I had a beautiful long-haired yellow and white tabby. He was such a love!

Angelface - The quarter in a cup of water would be a good idea when we travel north. That would tell me if our power went out while we were gone. Right now I depend on a neighbor who checks our house for us.

Joan - Hope Candy gets some action from her complaints.

Thank you all for the nice comments on the photo. Originally the bride and groom were part of an arbor type centerpiece and the bride had a flouncy skirt. All that's left is the bisque figurine.

Sandy - Funny you should mention my hair. It was a hot, humid and windy day and my hair just "did its own thing".  :) By the way, I think Brynn and your granddaughter Madison knew each other at one time.

Something Old!



Brynn chose to use this as her "something old". It's part of the cake topper from our wedding 61 years ago. She had a small wedding (thus a small cake). Can't tell you how pleased I was!

Hello Everyone.

It's been quiet week-end at our house. Anyone who had plans for an outdoor celebration must be disappointed. We've had very heavy rain off and on all day with occasional thunderstorms.

Our next door neighbors are at their son's on the east coast. Friday was their wedding anniversary and their daughter from Seattle sent them a lovely floral arrangement and a small box of chocolates. They had already left when it arrived so it was delivered to our house. (With the permission of the neighbor). I've enjoyed them all week-end on my dining room table.    We sent them a photo via cell phone and told them Chape had been eyeing the chocolates.  ;) They should be home this evening.

Mary Ann - Sorry you haven't been feeling well. It will take awhile to get used to showering with the bench but that should be a big help. Glad you have Annie to help.

Our master bath has a good sized shower (no glass door) but we need to install some grab bars. The guest bath has a tub which I haven't used for ages.

Marilyne- We always seem to need a doctor on week-ends! Hope you can get in tomorrow.

Sue - That fall could have been a disaster. Good that you had neighbors to help. I've had a hard time keeping my husband off ladders but he's becoming more cautious. He's had a pacemaker for many years and had it changed once.

We have a very good Urgent Care center. If you have symptoms of a heart attack or other emergency, they call an ambulance and you are taken directly into the hospital, no waiting in the waiting room. I went there one evening with abdominal pain........they did blood tests, (white count was high), gave me barium swallow and sent me to the hospital for a CT scan. Turned out to be an intestinal infection. If I'd gone to the ER I would have waited for ages (as I've done before.  :( )

Joan - Waiting for news of Candy's tests along with the rest of us.

Larry - Firehouse Subs are Chape's favorite. He likes them much better than Subway's.  I remember that you have a pacemaker and have had it longer than Chape's. I'm wondering if you are also what the doctor calls "pacemaker dependent", meaning it runs 24/7? He could tell when the back-up battery kicked in, which surprised them.

Patricia - I'll check out the cams. My part of Florida has had a lot of rain this summer but nothing like yours.

Wow! I've been "wordy" tonight. Hope tomorrow brings a better day for everyone.

Good morning. Happy 1st day of September!

It's hot here, too, Larry......92 at the moment. We've been having late afternoon thunderstorms and heavy rain every day, but no rain yesterday and it's bright and sunny so far today.

I agree that knowing is better when it comes to health problems. If left to my own imagination I can conjure up the worst!

Have a good day everyone.

I look in here every day and had hoped to see a post from Mary Ann. Maybe today.

Joan - I'm glad Candy is finally getting some results. Hope the MRI shows something less than what she fears. Our mind can play havoc with us and we always fear the worst. At least that's how I am!

I'll be back!

Hi Everyone - I received a message tonight from Pat Scott Halbach. She is going in for hip surgery at 8:00 in the morning. She asked that I let everyone know. She would appreciate prayers and good wishes for her surgery and recovery. She had planned on the hip surgery at a  later date, but apparently they had an opening so this was a bit of a shock and surprise.

I'm looking forward to seeing more posts in this discussion. I haven't been posting (or reading) many of the folders for awhile for various reasons, and I miss them.

Callie - Your gripe about using the word loose in place of lose caught my attention! That's one of my biggest gripes and seems to be used more and more frequently.

Newspapers no longer have proofreaders and the spelling on social media is horrendous! It appears that schools don't stress grammar or sentence structure anymore.

Another thing that concerns me is the trend toward not teaching cursive handwriting in schools. Fortunately, my great-grands attend a school where it's still taught and my 11 yr. old great-granddaughter shows promise of being good at it.

I am so sorry to hear of Hal Kelley's passing. I will miss him!

Just reading through the messages and saw the discussion about the scam.

Mary Ann - Your instinct was right on! DO NOT click on anything in the box that comes up and absolutely don't call the number. We were getting that fairly often and about the only way I could get rid of it was alt/control/delete and then shut down for about 10 minutes. My brother (who is very computer un-savvy) called the number and ran into all kinds of trouble. Everything on his computer was blocked to him including his e-mail and they were asking for money! He lives in Vermont so we couldn't help him but a friend of his came to the rescue. They make it look like it's something official from Microsoft.

The dinner we had at a restaurant on Thanksgiving cost $70 for two, not including appetizers or drinks. Marilyne, I don't know why but it seems to be a trend to serve green beans nearly raw! Broccoli, too. The best part of the dinner was the cheesecake! We really like the turkey dinner they serve at the Cracker Barrel. Ordering the Thanksgiving dinner from there sounds like a great idea.

Cute story........My aunt used to have them box her vegetables and cook them at home to her satisfaction.  She was a very good cook and could never understand why they served veggies "raw".

Received a nice surprise today..........a real evergreen centerpiece with a candle (the everlasting one) from L.L. Bean sent by our oldest daughter.  She also called to say they hope to be here for Christmas.

Good night all. I have bocce-golf in the morning.

We had a quiet day here. This evening we went out to dinner with three friends. Had a lovely dinner topped off with  delicious cheesecake. Our friend, Jim, had to work today so our dinner reservation was at 7:30. Jim works for the Neighborhood Watch here in The Villages.

I talked to several children and grandchildren on the phone. Yesterday our oldest daughter, Donna, called to tell me our great-grandson, Trevor, got his driver's permit. How did he get to be 15 so soon???  :o

It rained all day. At times it was a downpour. We really needed the rain so I'm not complaining.

Jeanne Lee - Sorry to hear you've been in the hospital but glad to hear you are home and on the mend.

Chape is watching the New York Giants football game. Score at the moment is tied, 3-3.

Good night all.

Angelface - You need to have some sort of antenna or cable that brings the signal to your TV. Talk to your building manager about what to do. They may have cable access for the apartments.

edit: If there's a TV station in your city, you may be able to have some sort of small antenna arrangement (like rabbit ears.)

Sato - It's good to see you posting photos again!

Your first photo could be a Rose of Sharon bloom. It's in the hibiscus family and the only hibiscus that survives in the north, where I came from. The hibiscus here in Florida are only found as potted plants up north.

Sandy - Fe is really growing up. So cute!

I've really enjoyed all the recent pictures and will try to be a more frequent visitor!
