Sandy, we lived in the Brunswick, Maine, area twice as my late hubby was a U.S. Navy pilot and assigned to VP squadrons there.  The first time we had to buy a small house in Brunswick as there were no rentals available except a one room apartment over a butcher shop in downtown Brunswick.  We had a toddler and I was pregnant again and realized I couldn't live there so we borrowed enough money from his parents to make a down payment on the house.  My father-in-law didn't want to lend the $1,000 down payment, but finally did and I went without a heavy coat and had really cheap boots from a convenience store in Brunswick.  I worked like a trouper to pay that $1,000 payment off.  We were there 4 years the first time. 

The second time Bob was stationed in Brunswick we rented a house out on Orr's Island as all the places at the Naval Station were occupied.  We had 3 sons at that time and our youngest was in Kindergarten.  He had a hard time zipping his jacket and his cranky and ill-mannered never married teacher wouldn't start the zipper  for him--and every kid at that school had to go outside and play in the snow after lunch.  She also wrote in the report that followed him to every school he attended in the U. S. that I was an over-protective mother who babied him.  Needless to say, I resented that a lot!

Now on a happier note, I'm glad your Rollater is on the way and I know it will be a blessing for you!

Sandy, I wonder if your Rollator being sent to California meant they were going to send it to Portland Oregon although it seems they would have been able to ship it direct.  Someone didn't mind their Ps and/or Qs.

It's only 59 degrees here, but the sun is shining, so it will be a nice day.  Radar does not show any rain in our area for days to come, however, I know Mother Nature can surprise us at the drop of a hat.

I'm very glad your Rollator is headed your way and I hope it travels the straight and narrow to Portland Maine!!!

I just looked at Grand Haven and there are big white caps and people are flying kites.  Good weather for that because it is windy.

Good morning, Every Buddy.  All is well here.  I need to shower and dress for my Wednesday bridge club which will be out at Ruth's house.  Terri will pick me up and then we'll pick up our 97 y.o. bridge player and go to Ruth's.  I can't imagine that I'll still be playing bridge if I get to 97, but who knows?!  I need to decide what to fix for my lunch, something light, probably as Ruth will serve a dessert with lots of calories.  She subbed yesterday at the Azalea Place bridge club.

Jane, how did your medical appointment go yesterday or are you still to see your doctor today?  Happy bridge day today!  I hope you get good cards and I know you'll enjoy playing.

Darlene, I understand about thinking of and missing your hubby every day.  Not a day goes by that I don't think about Bob.  He died in 2002 and although it's been 16 years now, it seems much longer. 

Sharon, I belong to 3 bridge clubs--and when any of us is the hostess, it's her responsibility to get a sub if needed.  When we play at Azalea place and need a sub, I have to check a list of bridge players who live there unless I find someone who plays outside the retirement center who would be willing to pay for her own lunch and play with us.  The players who live there and play with us eat 3 meals a day at the facility.  I'm glad I only play there once a month!

Hi to all the other Buddies looking in.  I hope all are well and will get back here when they can.

My New Orleans grandsons used to spend the month of June with me and July with their other grandmother when they were pre-school and early elementary age because both parents worked daily and they couldn't afford sitters.  The boys had to return to school in early August, so that worked out for their parents.  I usually tried to take them on a road trip of at least a week, so we saw lots of new and different things while traveling.  Now both of them are in college on scholarships and the oldest will graduate in June from Birmingham Southern U. here in Alabama.  He hasn't mentioned to me what he will do after that--maybe he'll go on to graduate school if he gets a grant or scholarship.  The younger one is on scholarship at LSU (Louisiana State University) not far from their home in the New Orleans area.  He was a sophomore this year and wants to teach mathematics when he graduates.

Good Morning Everyone,
from the much cooler and overcast,
rocky coast of Maine.   

I  got some good news yesterday.   
My Drive Rollator which got lost somehow
in the mail,   (delivered all the way to California,
in stead of to me here in Maine)!

We it is now officially on the road home to
me,  and should be delivered next Monday. 
Coming from California,  all across the USA to
Portland, Maine.     

What a relief to find that it is now
on its way.   Fingers crossed that this time
it makes it to me, before the first snow
fall...    :knuppel2:

All is well here.   

Have a good day,  Everyone!

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.
