Hi Everyone. Just checking in today.
Jackie - I'm glad the medication has helped your Atypital TN. I hope that Richard's Echo-cardiogram turns out okay. I had that test a couple of years ago . . . not painful, but very uncomfortable.
Mary Ann - I looked at the Presidents list also. When I see one of those "best of" lists, about anything, I always wonder who decides what is worst and what is best? Very subjective - or just a matter of someone's opinion I guess?
MarsGal - I feel so sorry for the feral cats in your neighborhood colony. This Winter has been so brutal, that I don't see how they will survive. Also, as soon as Spring arrives, the females will be in heat, and the colony will grow!
Haha, Amy, something worked! I ate bananas, drank the Gatorade & everything else in sight. I don't remember who it was that recommended Gatorade a long time ago, but I like the lemon/lime. Cas used to carry it on his golf cart but I didn't like it then. Looks like I'd better get to the store before the storm moves in.... blob of clouds to the west of us. I would like to go back to sleep to make up for all I lost this last week. I think I need a week to get off this roller coaster, not that I get a lot done, but kicking myself for NOT getting done takes a lot of energy! I recall Mother talking about "how much faster time flies the older you get"...she wasn't kidding!
Gloria, I am picturing the day we were camped on southern CO when snow was falling on the mountains near... I kept taking photos as it came further down the mountain, was fascinating to watch. We boogied out of there before it moved into our area & headed for home. I would love to go back because that campground was full of enormous jack rabbits & magpies. They weren't afraid of humans, I would have loved to bring some home with me! Are "the kids" still loving their homestead?
My mother used to make a filling for cream puffs that was out of this world. One bakery here used to make them but it closed. By the time I was ready to try, she couldn't remember how she made them. Just before the bakery closed that made them, I bought 6 to share with Cas, but ate one & then another on the way home (was across town), & had only 2 left by the time I got back so "shared" with him. I ate 5 that day & my punishment was I've never found anything like them since, it was a cooked filling.
Good morning everyone. We did get snow last night, cannot tell what is going on outside now. This is the prettiest snow we have had this year, not much but it is very white and the pines and hemlocks have a layer of snow on them and look beautiful. 27° now and not supposed to get above freezing today.
LARRY even if you cannot post each day it will not stop us from mentioning you and praying for you. You are a part of this family and always will be.
SHIRLEY I keep looking for a snow storm like we used to get, at least 10 inches every time and 2 feet was normal. Now people get upset with a few inches of snow. My daughter sent me a picture last night that her husband took of her standing out in the snow. Yes the snow finally came down to their level in the mountains and they had some snow. She has been sending me some photos of the snow on the mountains and getting lower in each one.
PHYLLIS what a terrible time you had but glad everything worked out. The fire dept. and the emt's are in the same building and less than a mile from here. The driver of one of the ambulances is the son of a lady across the hall from me.
AMY I like the cooked filling I have for cream puffs better than the cream. I know I would not like anything honey dipped. way too sweet.
JANE have a good day at Wm.
Have a good day.

Or even worse, you find the piece of paper at some later date, and you have no idea why you wrote it down, or what the message refers to?
Shirley, Gatorade for leg cramps? Does it work? If so I shall be buying some tomorrow!!
Jackie - That's a very cheerful, upbeat poem! Maybe it will help me today, to have a more positive attitude toward life.
Phyllis, my heart stopped as I read your post. What a terrifying time! You did good, all the right things and held yourself together. I'm proud of you and grateful for your good neighbors & fast responders. You will be in my thoughts & prayers as I go through the day. Nice to know you are tougher than you thought, right? But maybe you feel like a "wet dish rag" about now? Hugs...
Lloyd, we do go inside to talk to the manager before parking overnight, they suggest where they would prefer we park. In CO we see a dozen or more RVs parked around the edge of the Walmart parking lot, in Sedalia usually I am alone. One time when I found the campground closed because of flooding, the Warsaw Walmart was packed overnight! The Sedalia & Warrensburg Walmarts have a gas station on the edge so I go inside to buy a hundred dollar gift card to get a little off per gallon, but use the whole card to fill up, besides what I spend on groceries & other things. The cats go from window to window to watch the activity & feel safe (as I do), with doors locked, safer than in a motel room by myself!
Cats are all still sleeping so I'd better get a move on. We are expecting snow tomorrow again & want to go to the store for more Gatorade, it stopped the leg cramps & I am out. I have an eye appointment tomorrow so will call to make sure the doctor gets in before I leave the house. Winter is not over but so far all we have had is the cold wind & some ice/sleet.
Thanks, MarsGal, I was able to bring it up. I did not go through it a second time, with 44 Presidents listed, it took a bit of time, but I found it interesting anyway.
I was up earlier this morning and the temperature was 12 degrees and now at 9:10 it is 18 degrees. As in my mind, weather goes from west to east, you easterners can see what is in store. Our radar shows snow, but the sun is shining and I don't see any snow.
I'll be back later when/if I've done anything worth mentioning.
