  • Magda K: I already sent you an email 3 days ago. Maybe I sent it wrong. I find your program very complicated. Now I know Why I stopped login in the last time. I figured I give it another try, because I like the site, and the people. I am trying hard.

I'm adding - Have heard the three used at times.
1092 - (you're,he's/she's) nutty as a fruitcake.
1093 - " Give a wide birth to..."
1094 - You're never too old to learn

But not this one. "learn something new every day". It's like "brush your teeth", "pay attention".

Olive oil, vinegar, and spices are always a tasty salad dressing. Sometimes I will add a squirt of lime or lemon juice depending on the salad or if it includes fruit or fruit and cheese.

Good afternoon/evening all.    Lots of good suggestions here today.    I don't believe I've read anything by Kristin Hannah though have noticed them at the library.    I'll give her a try.   Also Elizabeth Goudge sounds like she might be good for a new author.   I just finished one that I got through HOOPLA.   It is a different story about a young woman  who is autistic and has been raised by her mother to believe that she isn't able to do much of anything.   The title is The Seven Rules of Elivra Carr by Frances Maynard.
 Thinking of you 'Tomereader'.  Nice to see you here a few days ago.

I was able to open Larrys clickable, but the chair was distorted almost like some straight dark lines. I have had that happen with another program.

I woke at three a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep, so this has been a very dull day for me. Read and napped after I had a big lunch down stairs, so I plan to stay at home for the rest of the day. I did get to Church and enjoyed. If I don't get back to say goodnight, know that I will have you in my prayers. June

MaryTX - My library has Summer Island in large print, but it's checked out right now.  I put my name on the wait list, so will probably go ahead and read it when it comes in.  I know I should start getting used to reading on the Kindle.  Not only are my eyes in poor condition, but I also have arthritic hands, and have a hard time holding onto anything, including books.  I'm sure my hands would win a prize for the ugliest and most twisted! LOL All of my fingers are going in different directions! :'(

Maryc - I got The Wake Up, by Catherine Ryan Hyde, at the library.  It looks like a story I'm going to like.  If you're looking for something good to read, I suggest Before We Were Yours,  by Lisa Wingate.

bubble - The library had nothing at all by Elizabeth Goudge, but I'm sure I can find something by her for my Kindle.

Other books I got today are: The House of Unexpected Sisters, By Alexander McCall Smith.  This is his new "Ladies Detective Agency" novel. The Last Picture Show, by Larry McMurtry, and Anything is Possible, by Elizabeth Strout. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Olive Kitteridge, which I liked a lot.

LARRY, I clicked on that to see if it's the one my friend travels with and I got someone's email address asking me to confirm that I am that person.  I'm not, so I didn't!  I actually tried it twice and got the same thing.  Wonder why?

Hi Everyone.  It is almost 4 pm but said I would come back later today so here I am for better or worse.  Pat didn't go to Church.  I wasn't able to reach her by phone so got in the car and came home only to get a call from her just as I turned into our small development saying she wasn't going.  So l turned the car around and went back down to Church.  Fortunately the man who provides golf cart transportation to attendees who need help with the long walk was waiting in front of the Church and I motioned to him and he followed me to where I parked and quickly brought me back up to the entrance of the Church.  After the service I got a ride back to the car.  I did pick up our lunch at Bojangles and after lunch took a nice nap.  I just came in from the hot garage where I reset my sprinkler system.  Right now we are at 98 degrees outside but nice and comfortable in the house.

Jane, we have never had an outside swing and I have always enjoyed them.  Unfortunately where we would put ours would be in the sun most of the day and most often it is too humid to be comfortable outside.  I bet yours is very pretty now and will be mores so after the second coat of paint. 

Carol, one of the blessings of being retired is that we don't have to drive in the snow anymore to get to work.  Of course where I live now snow is certainly not a problem as we seldom get any and it never stays on the ground very long.

June, I always enjoy hearing the songs of the 40's and 50's.  You could always understand the words and there would be a nice tempo.  I simply detest rap songs and the almost screaming  of many of today's singers.  However there still are some great singers who have beautiful voices and nice accompaniment. 

Jenny, your dad received terrible treatment and you all certainly have reason to be very upset.  I sure hope this doesn't have any long term ramifications to his health. 

Peter, thanks for the link and I will certainly check some of these out.  I have always enjoyed the British TV series as the setting are so nice to see and the many flowers. 

Amy, hope you didn't get a speeding ticket when you rushed to pick up the fabric scraps.  :)  Pat likes to make scrappy quilts. 

Gloria, a transport chair is like a wheelchair but designed to carry in a car and isn't nearly as heavy as a wheelchair.  We got the one we have to use with Stacey as we often had to take her to medical appointments before she got the electric riding carts and then the wheelchair.  They are fine on flat and smooth surfaces  but just like a wheelchair are a bit difficult to push up a grade or over carpet.  Since a pictures is worth a lot of words here is the link to the exact chair we have.  In our move the foot pieces, which detach, seem to have been lost but Pat will not be using it as a wheelchair but as a rollator type device.,4164936&utm_campaign=118724597
