G'Afternoon all. ok Lloyd read your message, hope you managed to open the latest from the 'Bald Explorer' I sent you ?, still very mild and warm
here, change due this weekend,  so the forecaster said, almost time to turn on the C/Heating !, we try to reach October before we have to do that, good to see your back Don, I wish you well my friend, we are still plagued by the 'urban Foxes' that live around here, between them and the squirrels, seagulls, it does get a bit lively around here as soon as the sun sets, the cooler weather should soon sort them out, I hope !.

                                                                                    Cheers all.   Roley.  :thumbup:.

Hi Everyone.  It looks like it will be another hot day here in South Carolina.  At least we have a 50% opportunity for rain this afternoon.  Pat plans to attend her Gifts group this morning so I will take her and go on down to coffee with the guys.  Yesterday I found that our downtown drug store had medical equipment on display so we stopped there after Pat's doctor visit as the doctor told her she definitely needed the Rollator and gave her the prescription for it.  She found just what she wanted and I am going to be able to get it into the back seat by placing it on the seat rather than between the seats.  I don't know why I hadn't thought of that before.  I can slide it in and out and not have to lift very much.  So that is a problem solved.  We will be going to dinner at the Church this evening with Scott and then look forward to our weekly visit with him.

Jane, I know it is a good feeling to get something organized as you did yesterday. It can be amazing how quickly things revert back to be disorganized.  Scott checked at Kroger's for us for the yellow corn meal and the least they had was three pounds so we will keep looking.  She only wants it for the fish. Nice to know a good handy-man to handle those odd jobs like the gutters.  That is a problem we will never have here as we don't have any gutters nor do the other houses in our neighborhood.  It is possible that Phyllis still isn't able to get back home or that her home is damaged.  I don't remember whether she lives where the flooding could be a problem or not, but hopefully not. 

Pat just let me know she isn't up to going to her gifts group so we will be staying home today until time for dinner at the Church.   

Amy, I have had many Blizzards at Dairy Queen and I also like to bring one home and put in the freezer.  I have been signed up for the Dairy Queen offers since the new one opened near us several months ago.  I also find the small one the right size for me now but used to always get the medium.  My favorite is with the Heath Bar crumbled in it. You all are getting a lot of rain.  Hope you have a good shopping experience at Costco.   

Lloyd, we never had either horses or mules on our farm as I grew up.  My sister and I would have loved to have a pony but my Dad wasn't interested in them. Glad you have a trusted friend who will care for your livestock and keep an eye on things while you travel. 

Don, nice to see your posting and to see that you are fine.  Perhaps the short term memory losses will be come less frequent or go away before long. 

Shirley, I expect most of us as we age have some difficulty remembering things at the instant we want them, such as peoples names.  I can usually eventually think of them and certainly recognize the faces when seeing them.  I find the same thing in working the crossword puzzles and when I don't know the answer just work on to other clues and then often when I come back to them the word needed pops into my mind.  Sorry to read that your grandson is having medical problems and hope the surgery helps the situation. 

Gloria, that is a nice temperature you expect for today.  It is not getting light here in the mornings until around 7 am.  I don't like getting up and starting my day while it is still dark. Pat started using her Rollator as soon as we got home.  It has the 8" wheels and rolls very easily.  It has a wide seat that is comfortable.  She is looking forward to being able to get out and shop a little bit now as she will always have a place to sit down after being on her feet for a few minutes.  I was surprised when we got the Dairy Queen just a couple of miles from where we live here in North Augusta but the area where they built is growing quickly with new homes and is on an outer parcel with the big Walmart store.

Patricia, you are right about seeing things through our own biases.  Unfortunately it seems there isn't any room anymore for letting other people have their own opinions and if we don't agree then we are bad people.  I am appalled that some of our public officials are hounded and forced to leave places to eat with their families by people shouting at them.  It appears our civility as a society is breaking down.  Perhaps it has always been like this but now everything to reported.  We have three different newspapers but I don't subscribe to any of them.  I do visit their websites to obtain some local news and do watch the local newscast each evening.   

Jean, thanks for the nice comment about my postings.  I know I often just chatter on too long.  I hope we will be getting some of that rain you are experiencing.  We do have a good chance this week for more rain. 

deAngel, sometimes I have to push myself to get out and go but then find I put my focus on something besides how I am feeling and am glad I did go.  As our population ages and people live longer there is certainly going to be a demand for assisted and independent living facilities.  It was nice of your DIL to make the suggestion.  At least that gives you an option to consider.  I can just visualize you on that putting green.   

Marilyne, I have always thought of California as a sunny place and I guess it is living up to that reputation.  Stay cool today as 100 degrees is hot where ever one is. I can certainly relate to what you said about having good days and bad days. I sort of bet that the golfers on the Senior Tour are shuddering at the thought of Tiger becoming old enough to play in those tournaments. Sunday I did look up how old Tiger is and found he is 42, if I remember correctly. I see that Mary Ann has confirmed that I remember correctly. 

Mary Ann, it is interesting how two people experiencing the same things recall them with differences. 

Joan, so glad that Candy is beginning to get some answers. 

Joy, making a cup of tea in a Keurig coffee maker would hardly seem equivalent to preparing a meal but glad you passed the test.  That is a good idea to use the walker in front of your refrigerator since that requires a lot of bending on occasion and you will have something to steady yourself.  I had a similar experience yesterday when the lady in the drug store came out as I was trying to put the new Rollator between the seats and she suggested putting it up on the seats, which worked great and solved a problem.  I thought to myself, why didn't I think of that.

Thanks for all the kind comments.  Know I have repeated how fortunate to have the park so handy and choose it for almost daily walks.  Did not know his firm owned the Edmund Fitzgerald.   Following is a short piece of history on Earl Oglebay.


OGLEBAY, EARL W. (4 March 1849-22 June 1926) developer of iron mines in Michigan and Wisconsin, co-founder of Oglebay Norton and Central National Bank, was born in Bridgeport, Ohio, the son of Crispin and Charlotte Scott Oglebay. Brought up in Wheeling, West Virginia, he graduated from Bethany College in Bethany W. Va in 1871 and worked for his father in Wheeling. After his father's death, Earl inherited his interests in the Benwood Iron Works and became president of Wheeling's National Bank of West Virginia, which his grandfather had founded in 1817. Oglebay came to Cleveland in 1881 through his bank's interest in mining, and together with Horace A. Tuttle, established the partnership Tuttle, Oglebay & Co. in 1884 to mine iron ore in Michigan and Wisconsin where Oglebay had already purchased a mining interest. When Tuttle died in 1889, Oglebay bought the interests of his heirs and acted as sales agent for mines in the Gogebic, Menominee, and Marquette Ranges. Backed by JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, Oglebay and DAVID Z. NORTON, he organized Oglebay Norton in 1890 to mine iron ore on the lands that Rockefeller owned. That same year Oglebay was one of the founders of the Central National Bank, and remained a director of the institution throughout his life.

Oglebay divided his time between Cleveland and Wheeling where he owned the 1200-acre Waddington farm, practicing scientific farming to improve methods of soil and crop adaptation. He married Sallie Howell 27 Oct. 1881 and they had a daughter Sarita. He died in Cleveland, survived by brothers James and Frank of Kansas City, Sarita Burton Russell (Mrs. Albert), and grandson Courtney Burton. He was buried in Wheeling.
