My oldest son had to take home-ec one semester.  He made a pair of pants and learned to cook a few dishes.  He's the only one of the 3 to take home ec--but all 3 of our sons cook--2 of them more than their wives!  I let them use my kitchen if they had something they wanted to cook--and most of it was edible.  I even let them make beer once, but didn't let them drink it as they were not drinking age yet.  It was pretty awful but I tried it and told them they did a good job!  I had my fingers crossed when I told them that.

JUNE, I like your wish for a "happy, hopefu tomorrow"  I wish that for everyone also!

I'm going off to bed pretty soon too. My roof doesn't leak and my cleaning dynamo was here so the house sparkles.  She had some problems of her own and wasn't here last month.  She was out in the car with her baby granddaughter and had a flat tire.  Her son picked them up, took the home and went back to change the tire.  In the meantime, a truck had come around the bend and hit her car totaling it.  Thank God, she and the baby were not in the car.  The truck driver wasn't hurt but it was his first run alone as a truck driver so I'm guessing that he's got a little trouble of his own.

Now I'm off to bed.  I wish you a peaceful night and (in JUNE'S words) a hopeful tomorrow.

I've been reading this evening after cutting back about half of my azaleas in the backyard.  Still lots more to go.  Jon called earlier and he is taking Alex back to Birmingham this weekend.  They'll come up here on Friday and spend Friday and Saturday nights, then go to Bham on Sunday.  If they leave early enough, I'll still be able to get to church if Olyne is going.  I have bridge tomorrow at Terri's, but no bridge on Thursday until the first week of September.

Not much else to report.  Sleep well, Buddies.

Larry, we've bought 2 freezers over the years & never had anyone tell us to wait before turning on.  On that note, I was not told to get this RV alignment as soon as I bought it, either. The online chat has been talking about the fact that Ford does an alignment when the chassis leaves the factory but the maker of the motorhome (Thor) does NOT, but they sure didn't say to get it done.  Today I had to put on 2 new front tires because "the inside of the tread was bald" with right at 23,000 miles on them and not safe on the highway.  I have an appointment for next Wed to get it alighned (soonest they could get to it).  I was stunned.  IF they had recommended getting it done it would have saved quite a bit. IF my sons had not noticed the wear (kind of had to put your head inside the tire opening)..... a blow out on that heavy vehicle could have/would have been possibly fatal for someone.  I looked at the tires but did not see the "cupping" on the outside of the tread like I've seen on other vehicles....  My mother used to tell me that "you are wearing out your Guardian Angel, Shirley".... you think?

Bubble, I am sorry Don is having a hard time accepting where he is..... no question he has a reason be be depressed, his heart is in Israel, "home" is not home and he loves being the entertainer.  Sometimes (it was with my father), meds are given "so the patient doesn't hate to wake up in the morning" (how it was explained to us), but those meds numb all resolve to work at getting stronger.  My niece has a doctors degree in geriatric pharmacy, lives on the east coast, so we had her fly back to check on Dad & the meds he was given.  She was in charge of the meds for 3 nursing facilities (should say, "worked with the doctors") and told us "that's what we prescribe for our patients."  We were concerned that he was alert & talkative for a few minutes & then sort of "zoned out".  Dad was 95, though, and had allowed his muscles to atrophy to the point he could not stand or help himself at all.  Made such an impression on me I have been overly cautious to note every time I find a new "something" that I can't do any longer.  Difficult to encourage them when meds are working to make them not care.  Prayers for him, and for you, it is always harder on loved ones to watch someone be mentally tortured.

Oh, Janie, I'm so glad caulking did the job, hoped that was the case.    I have the mustard sitting on the stove to cook the recipe Amy sent, that you two make.  Think the boys will enjoy it when sitting around the table out camping.  Both boys watch carbs so bet some brats fresh off the grill would be good dipped in your mustard, right?

Carol, I'm bouncing off the wall to think we might get to see the aspen turning this year, youngest son has not had that pleasure so far.  Thanks for the tip!

Phyllis, been quite a while since you've visited.  I think of you every time I drive through the park across from Back Bay Blvd, and when I stop at Ottawa every time I drive to MO. 

Gloria, had another night with the door open for fresh air.... and the head ache to show for it today.  Not sure if the cooler air or all that ragweed pollen that blows in.  Everyone complaining about the pollen this year.  And we used to be so excited for snow!  Could it be we are getting old... older???  Glad you got Skype working.... I still don't have the spell check on this computer, have done every setting change I can but will have to wait until one of my boys rescues me.  I glanced back & caught typos that should have popped up to let me know on the old computers.....  I hate changes. 

I've been stopping & starting today & will just shut up for the night.  Sweet dreams to all.  Shirley

Mary, I think I was the only girl to take a shop course.  I know I would not have taken it if my dad had not been the teacher.  At the same time, some boys in another school took Home Ec and I understand they goofed around and goofed things up so that fall a new rule was boys did not take Home Ec and girls did not take shop courses.  By that time I had enough knowledge to print the tickets and I earned some money too.

I had my own experience with baked potatoes - in the microwave.  I was fixing a baked potato in the range oven, then wanted to put a steak to broil (this happened years ago and I forget the sequence) so I put the partially baked potato in the microwave for probably 10 minutes.  Presently I heard a terrible loud noise just the other side of the table beside my chair in the computer room.  It wasn't until I stood up that I realized it was the smoke alarm.  I got that off and saw a haze in the living room.  The alarm went off again and I got it off again.  I looked in the range oven that was now empty and there was nothing wrong there.  Finally, I opened the microwave door and there was the inside in shambles.  The potato was a crisp and all I could do was laugh because I did it myself!  The top of the microwave melted and came down at the corners of that plate and looked like a tester bed.  I took a picture of it and the next day went to Lowe's and bought a new microwave.  The next day a man came and installed the new one.  That must have been a good 10 years ago.  I do bake potatoes in the microwave but not partially baked ones and I have good luck with them.

For what it's worth, I've been taking alendronate, which is generic for one of those bone-strengthening drugs. I've been on it for a couple of years now, and I've had no side effects.  I rarely have side effects from medications, though.

Mary Ann, yes I sorted a lot of trays and I didn't drop them either :(.  I think my class was the first time they allowed girls in shop classes.  There were a few other girls but I don't recall any boys in the Home Ec classes.  By the time my kids were in high school, both sexes took shop and Home Ec.

We will never forget Jeff's Home Ec experience and neither will he :).  He and his partner also a guy, were learning how to bake potatoes.  They forgot to poke the potatoes to let the steam out and they exploded in the oven!  They spent the rest of that class and probably the next one learning how to clean an oven ;D

Another lovely day is coming to a close. Our high was supposed to be 82 degrees, but by mid afternoon I still need to turn on the a/c. Now it is lovely again.  Had a good lunch downstairs with friends, and I brought half of it home so I will soon put it in the microwave and have my supper.
after lunch I  did the usual nap and reading, then went out for a good walk, and a longer time on the glider where I can exercise both my legs and arms. Nothing  exciting. I did attend a good program this morning though. Discussions on emergency  procedures here at Rowntree. They take such good care of us.

Gloria, how I wish you had good people running your place.

My Gary will be here tomorrow for Bible studies, and I always look forward to that. He is so good to me. And then in the afternoon my monthly doctors visit will take place. Gary wants her to call him, so he can talk with her, so I will deliver the message. She had the lab give me another blood test last Saturday.

Now it is time to have my supper, then a shower, then to bed and book again. I will have two more breathing stuff, albuteral, by 7 o'clock and last two pills of the day at nine o'clock.

I pray you all have a peaceful night, and a happy hopeful tomorrow. Much Love and  hugs, and prayers always, June

Amazon always been my favorite shopping place......BUT...there was an fraud attempt on my kinda scary now..even though changed password..of course...but Amazon did catch and prevent does one create a strong password?
Take a look at  -
There are other similar sites, and some software (like Norton AntiVirus & others) offer password creation.  They may be hard to remember but that's what makes them tough to crack. Write it down and keep in a safe place.
