Sounds like we all are having a quiet day and lack energy.  I've done a few things, but not much. John is at bridge. Surprise, surprise!

Larry So nice to see your long message this morning.   Maybe you'll soon be able to slowly resume some of your regular activities,   like church, or enjoying lunch or dinner at a local restaurant.

Mary Ann - Now that I'm thinking about it, I realize that Goodwill or Salvation Army, no longer will pick up items at a persons home.  Goodwill still has the majority of the business, because they permanently stationed their old trucks on empty lots, and people can go to those trucks and leave their donations.  There is someone in them to receive the items seven days a week, and they are locked at night.  So Goodwill makes it very easy and convenient, and I assume that the majority of people go there.  We used to, until we learned how the Goodwill operates.  It was quite the scandal here in California, because the CEO makes such a huge amount of money, and our donations are sold at inflated prices on line and on eBay. 

Jean - Our oldest daughter will also turn 61, this Spring.  Her birthday is on May 7th.  Our son will be 58 this Wednesday, March 20th. (The first day of Spring).  Sandy's birthday is in April, and she will be 50.  As I said once before, she is not one bit happy about turning 50.

Jackie - so your daughter and my youngest were both born in 1969!  You were much younger at the time than I was.  I was 34 when Sandy was born.

Patricia - I like your "Welcome to Spring" picture! :yikes:  Needless to say, the rest of us are ahead of you, but soon you will be enjoying those Long sunny days, once again.

Hi Larry, how nice of the couple from your Sunday School class to visit you.  And they did not seem to tire you out.

We have Goodwill, Salvation Army and a thrift store all within two miles of here.  I have not heard of any of them offering to pick up any more, but I suppose the first two do yet.  The thrift store is most convenient merely because either Tom or Robin would take it there. 

Tom is having breakfast or lunch with his cousin this morning.  It was his father who died last fall; he had Parkinsons. His mother died from ALS.  The father was a brother of Tom's mother, Norm's first wife.  We've always kept in contact with them.

The sun is shining now, but it's only 33 degrees.  Radar doesn't show anything west of us, but that could change in a minute. 

Larry, Rory McIlroy won the golf tournament yesterday and I think Jim Furyk was second.  Furyk is one of the older players and it would have been nice to see him win, but McIlroy hasn't won in a while (I think), so it was nice for him too.

Hi Everyone on a beautiful sunny day and we are to get up into the mid-60's this afternoon.  Yesterday was opposite of how I felt on Saturday and was able to enjoy the day by not being so tired.  Our afternoon was topped off by the visit of a couple from our Sunday School Class.  They are really pleasant people and we had a nice visit.  I did get a few things done yesterday.  My goal for today is to work on getting Pat's computer set up the way she had her other one and get some of the games she liked and played a lot on the computer as well.  There are no basketball games on TV today so will get to spend more time listening to my audio book as am coming down to the end of it.

Carol, we weren't out yesterday so didn't get to see any of the wearing of the green.  I hope you enjoyed the Irish birthday party.  That sounds like a nice and usable gift you made and it doesn't have to be dusted. 

Amy, perhaps some day we will all have robots to do the cleaning and keep kitchens nice. 

Jane, it sounds like you are getting some Spring fever if you are starting to look at yard stuff.  I have eaten bologna sandwiches for many years for my lunch but now have no appetite to eat lunch and lunch meat doesn't appeal to me.  I have never tried potato chips in a sandwich.  Sorry to hear you no longer have help in keeping your yard up.  Do you have a big yard?

Shirley, have you considered hiring a landscape company to care for your yard?  We had one where we lived for a number of years when I got to where I couldn't handle the yard work and here we have a HOA that takes care of the yards every week during growing season and every other week when it isn't growing but to keep each yard neat. Glad you got a new shed for your pool things and that was certainly quick action on the part of your Son. I worry about you pushing yourself too hard. Glad to read you are sleeping better. 

Amy, hope you get to enjoy doing some sewing today.  It sounds like you all may have a pretty busy morning.  I have always liked fried bologna and my mother used to make it and Pat has also done it on occasion.

Phyllis, I have purchased Boar's Head luncheon meats in the past but always found them rather blah in taste.  A few years ago I was talking to a lady at Kroger's who said she had worked in the deli department for 25 years and that bologna was the best seller they had.  That may well have been it was usually the cheapest.  However, while price was always a consideration I just simply liked it the best.  Maybe I will try to get my taxes reviewed and submitted this week but it won't be today.

Lloyd, I also liked pickle loaf but I don't see it available in the stores here in the South.  I also liked the luncheon spread in place of mayo or other salad dressing but it has also gone out of favor and no longer in our stores. 

Sandy, you are right about the contents of bologna but I still ate a lot of it over the years.  You must have a very talented grand daughter to attend and graduate art school.  How is she using her talents in that regard?

Cold, rainy, gloomy day here, and neither of us has any energy.  I think it'll be a quiet day here.

Mary Ann, if Scott is here he does the driving and if not Pat does it. I haven't driven since early January when the exhaustion and weakness set in.  Glad you got your computer so you can now access your bank.  I am glad you have Tom there to help you with your computer problems. 

Jackie, we have often donated to the Salvation Army but now we donate to our Community Missions Thift Store that is supported by 22 Churches in our town. We get those charity bags left at our house also.  Sometimes it is for food and other times for clothing.  

Patricia, it sounds like Fairbanks must think your snowy season is over if they are now hauling the snow out of the city.  I noticed when we went by on Friday that our Lowe's Garden Center has a huge amount of garden related materials stored at the outer edges of their parking lot and am sure people are anxious around here to start planting.  The lady who visited us yesterday is an ardent gardener and was telling us about the club she belongs to where they shared clippings and plants at each meriting. She brought us a beautiful plant that has red leaves shaped almost like a four leaf clover but doesn't have four leaves to a stem. Who would want a Bible autographed by a politician?  I hadn't heard about that happening.  I like your graphic.

Lindancer, I will have to look today to see who won the golf tournament yesterday as didn't watch any of it.  We have only the four living great grandchildren but certainly have prospect of being great great grandparents in a few years, at least I hope it is a few years and know I probably won't be around to know.  Some of the new technology is also beyond me.

Marilyne, we have donated to Good Will in the past but certainly won't do so in the future. We have a fairly new Salvation Army Thrift Store that opened in our little town since we have moved here.  It is not junky looking like most thrift stores look.

Jean, a belated Happy Birthday to your oldest daughter.  I agree the years really fly by.  Our son is now 51 and is showing some signs of the years catching up with him aches and pains.  He also has heart problems.  I am also a big fan of Hospice as they were so good to Stacey and then to us when she passed.

Good morning, Buddies.  Bill left yesterday morning at 6:00 a.m. and I couldn't get back to sleep after that.  Olyne called and then later picked me up for the special SS class discussion most of the adult classes have joined.  It is OK, but somewhat over my head and I would have liked another hour of sleep after Bill left.  He got home about 4:30 central time so made pretty good time.  He called when he got home to let me know he was there.

Today I need to check with the Wednesday bridge club to see if it is now my turn and make calls if it is.  I think Sara took my place and they met last week at her house.  Bill and I had a good time, went out to eat several times and I enjoyed him, but he spent a lot of time on calls to and from his office during the day.  I know it's my turn for the Thursday club and I need to make calls to the members today.

Mary, I hope you got something to help with the cough and congestion and got in to see the pulmonologist.  Nothing worse than coughing and wheezing--I know it wears once out when it is so frequent. 

Jane, it is a very happy day here in Auburn.  The newspaper this morning has multiple photos of the celebrating team and lots of praise for the Tigers.  I am still concerned that Coach Pearl had offered a job to an assistant coach who has been recently identified as someone who has "fudged" some recruiting practices.  I hope Coach Pearl drops that candidate as Auburn doesn't need another investigation!

I need to get caught up on laundry.  I did get the sheets on the guest room bed washed and back on the bed yesterday after church.  We had a good time and I enjoyed his visit, but I'm pretty tired after all the activities!

Have a nice day, Every Buddy.
