Don, it is good to hear from you and know that things are OK with you, even if not to your liking.  Since it seems you will be unable to continue with those activities that gave you such pleasure, I would hope you can find something productive to do - and I don't have any ideas.

Oh DON!  I regret your losses but I rejoice with you that you will still have your closeness with your sweetie!  Keep that thought in mind and maybe you'll outsmart them all!

Janie,I have used the Epley method for years...learned it when my husband kept having sounds in his ears...he slept with the radio going day and night because of  sounds in his ears. I just use it when necessary. It works every time, but it is not a permanent cure.

Now I am fighting dizziness......two weeks of it.
 'the clinic is blaming it on too little salt in my blood. I take two salt tablets a day now, and it helps, but no cure.

As long as we are here, let's dance.

Sorry you continue to have the dizziness, JUNE.  I know it is not a nice feeling and of course the worse part is the danger of falling.  You take care.  I hope you get your computer back soon.

DON, I,too am sorry you have not felt like you are improving enough in your respite care.  I hope you can settle in a permanent living situation soon.  I heard on our news last night that many suffer loss of memory as well as some other daily abilities due to anesthesia after a surgery or the like.  Many find that it does improve over a long period of time and others sadly never regain them.  Pretty sad.  One of my cousins in her mid eighties had hip surgery a month plus ago....while she was in rehab the powers that be said she had dementia so bad that she could not go back home and live alone....I wonder if that is what happened to her?

LLOYD, I am sorry to read about you Hospital visit.  I do hope you ar3 feeling much better.

SHIRLEY, my dear friend had the stem cell replacement in her knees and her back a year plus ago, but sadly did not get much if any relief from her pain from it, and it was very expensive.  She has since had her knee replaced. Best of luck to your daughter-in-law if she chooses this route.

Thank you for the info regarding Ruby Tuesday’s, LARRY. I will see if I can figure out how to register. 

AMY, thank you for asking about my dad.  He continues to do fantastic.  They have cut a couple of his care provider visits but the PT guy is still coming for another couple of visits. 

Kate enjoyed a fun morning with us. Her mama picked her up just after noon as she had a private dance lesson at 2.  We would have been happy if she could have stayed a little longer.

Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

Don, I'm so sorry you are "floating" in limbo right now and hope they get you more mobile fast so you can get settled.  Where ever you live the other residents will appreciate having their own Santa so don't get rid of that red suit too fast!  I expect most places will have Christmas parties for the guests and their families, and maybe you'll get a chance to visit some of the shelters that really need some joy during the holiday season.  All of the retirement places here have a bus to take people to the store & other places, you can start working on the trips once you settle in. 

Besides, with this "forced retirement" maybe you will find time to write that autobiography for your kids and grands.... it is just one day that you tell them every little detail, put the date or age when it happened so when you are all through with remembering, you can organize the pages and you have a book!  When my mother was writing hers she had her oldest brother describe how they cut the ice from the river and put it in the "ice house" (they had a butcher shop) with boards & straw so it would last all summer.  I didn't know they put the butter in the "dippers" that go down into a cistern.. Your kids and grands will be fascinated by the variety of things you have done.... just remember, only one day at a time & a loose leaf notebook, NOT one of the spirals that you can't shuffle pages.  Got to promise to share some of your thoughts with us, okay?

June, I am sure you have the best doctors ever, they do such a thorough job of testing and knowing what is wrong, any chance it may be a reaction to a new medication?  Our bodies tend to throw a fit if they don't like something.... Now I would LOVE to be told to eat more salt, I crave it & try hard to not go overboard.  Hope you have a good day tomorrow.

I never did get that nap, walked the cats down to the river but only a few fish came to eat tonight.  Water is muddy, more rain to the west, but not really high at all.  Cats are all lounging in the pool area.  They stayed inside all day & will let them stay out all night, it is too steamy to open a door tonight so hopefully a good night to sleep.  Sweet dreams to all & God Bless!

Bubble, every time I come in here & see your graphics I smile at the first & then laugh out loud a the last one.  You are good!

Thank you, Jenny, for the note about your friend.  Andy will appreciate knowing the info came from you.  I would love to hear if anyone really found regrowth or whatever it does.  I did Google & called a place in KC just to see what their process was & basic cost  Certainly not cheap & cost is for each knee, of course.  Possibly their insurance would pay for rehab after, but I don't buy they have a "90% cure" and it not be recognized by insurance or Medicare, doesn't make sense, must be cheaper than surgery.

JUNE, maybe your "rocks" are out of place.  It's worth asking the doctor!  They could help you with that maneuver right in your own bedroom.

G'morning all, Well after the storm came the calm !, we had a day and a night of welcome rain and nice fresh air blowing up the channel from the Atlantic but, slowly it has changed again and now the temperature is climbing again !, the forecast is 30C + by this weekend, im not looking foreward to that again !, Lloyd,  got your messages ok, sorry to hear of your problems, hope your health soon improves again.
Don, very sorry to read of your problems, that sounds to me as if that dreaded PPS has come back and bitten you again, if so, then I can sympathise with you, I went through the same problems earlier this year, it is a long hard road back, rough too !, but, stick with it Don, i'm sure you will  come through it all  :thumbup:.

                                                                                   Cheers.  Roley   :).

Good Morning Everyfriend!  The doggies and I are waiting for the boinger so we can have breakfast.  I'll be off to Wally World this morning and it's supposed to rain all day....again!

Rammel, thanks for adding info.  I have all that info from my Dr. but when I'm recommending something to someone else, I tend to oversimplify because I want them to form their own opinions and do what seems best for them at the time.  I would never TELL someone to do what helped me because we are all so different!  But having the info at hand is a good thing.

It's going to be a busy day.  I have things to deal with when I get home from work so I better get moving.  I wish you all a great day filled with whatever suits your fancy.

Good morning everyone..

Cloudy here with a threat of rain. Not sure what is happening here this morning, I do know meds need to be picked up and will do that first thing as town will be like a can of worms later on.


Don, you have a special talent , one that you share with so many, you 're a people person and no matter where you go you will fit in. I like Shirley's idea of writing a book as I am sure you have many stories to tell of what you have done in the past. Loved reading that you will be visiting your hunny bunny too!


Got to go get ready for the day.

Take care and enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone, already 80°. local news just showed one of the beaches and alread a lot  of people on it and some in the water. Yesterday my CNA had information for me about the cannabis. A coworker of her huband uses it. Just go to a link and order it. No prescription. Expensive but if it works I do not care. I ordered a jar and it is already in the mail. Will let you know if it works. Have my fingers crossed. I do need some relief.

LARRY  I know CVS got too big and they are not dependable. I called yesterday and was told they have not received the fax from the doctor yet.

SHIRLEY  being diabetic you do have to be careful what you eat. A pancreatic flare up can happen and can cause cancer. My Mom was diabetic and I am  the only one in the family who is lucky. I am borderline so am careful what and how much I eat.

DON  it is terrible when we have to face the reality that we can no longer do the things we did and enjoyed for years. Forget who it was that said these are not the golden years but the rusting years. Take care.

Have a good day.

Good morning to all the early birds. 

A kind of hazy, lazy day,   It does look a little bit like rain.  We have just had so much rain here along the east coast, and more predicted next week.  At least, it is not a cold rain.  Can get very humid after a shower.

Don, I am sure, once you get settled, you will feel up to joining in some activities.  You can always play Santa, sitting down.  And, I know you will be a big hit !!  And, you could always start some kind of a music gathering that the people would enjoy.  You are such a personable person, that I think you would fit in anywhere. 

Gloria,  I will be interested in hearing what you think after trying the Cannabis????  I see a lot of information about it.  Sure hope you will see some good results. 

Time to get myself moving a little bit.  I have a couple things on my agenda today, that  I must take care of.

Looking forward to a nice week end.  And, hope all of the friends here will have a good one, also.

Joy

Hi Everyone on this Friday morning.  We had rain on and off most of the day and evening yesterday.  It will stay in the mid-80's today and we have more chances of rain late afternoon and evening.  I plan on staying home today as about wore myself out yesterday.  I will keep myself busy here at my desk and with some kitchen duties, including shredding some cheddar cheese.   Yesterday I did go to coffee, stopped at Aldi's for a half dozen items, dropped my friend back at his retirement home and then stopped at the credit union.  I had some US Savings bonds that have matured and needed to cash them.  I had to wait awhile for my turn with customer service.  After that I stopped at Walmart to get some bread.  When I got home I laid down for an hour.  Then Pat and I went to Cheddars for our main meal of the day.  We thought Scott was going to go but he decided to stay home.  I ordered the special half rack of baby back ribs.  Then they served them they were cold, dry and I couldn't even make a dent with the knife on the top layer of something.  I told the waiter they were unacceptable and he replaced them with some that were hot, moist and tender and they were very enjoyable.  I ordered a pair of bifocal reading glasses as am tired of constantly having to put on and take off the the reading glasses.

Jane, I did  get an email from you regarding the clothes basket.  I use the Gmail email account and seldom look at the other one but did check it and and found nothing from you there.  I did get the clothes basket issue resolved and found what we needed. If you have sent another email I do not have it and I always try to respond to email from my friends so would have replied back unless it was a link to something. 

Lloyd, glad to see you won the battle with your computer yesterday and was able to post. Sure hope you are feeling better. 

Shirley, not surprised at the scoreboard and seeing the cats won.  I have never heard of them using stem cells to fix knees although know a lot of work is being done with stem cells.

June, the dizzy spells must make it difficult to do your daily walking that is so important to your legs.  Hope today finds you feeling better.

Don, good to see your message but sorry that you are not seeing much benefit from the respite care.  I hope your sons soon find you a good place to live permanently.  It is hard to give up those things we love doing but time marches on and we have to accept we cannot do many of the things we have done before.  I didn't read your message as negative but just stating the facts. 

Jenny, you spoke of the dangers of anesthesia especially for us as we age.  My former brother-in-law experienced that to some extent.  Was the cousin you mentioned already suffering with dementia when she broke her hip or was it a sudden onset?  I hope you got registered with Ruby Tuesdays.  We have eaten there many times since we moved here and will continue to do so.  Glad your dad is doing so well and know that is a relief off of your mind.  How old is Kate now? 

Roley, hope you find a place to stay reasonably cool today.  Nicer days are sure a welcome relief from hot and rainy weather.  We have had overcast and cloudy skies with quite a bit of rain the last few days and today seems the same.  It is always nice to see the sun when it does shine again. 

Amy, how big is the town you go to for the meds? 

Gloria, is sure hope the cannabis helps you.  We just had a store open over in Augusta to sell those products and am reading good things about using it in various forms as it has the element that causes a person to get high removed from it.  It sounds like another breakdown in follow through from your doctor's office if the drug stores hadn't received the needed fax with the prescription.

I'm going to try "bold". Others that use it make it easier for me to read. Another day of my head swimming. I am so thankful there is no pain involved. Just have to remember not to turn to quickly, or bend over without something solid to hang onto. It is the lack of salt that causes this problem. They discovered the lack of salt through a blood test. It could be a serious problem if left untreated.

temps our here about the same..dry as a bone.

Reading your notes, I said a little prayer for each of you.  It is difficult to admit we cannot do the same things we did twenty years ago and not easy at all to face the reality of damage from a mishap or just waking up to a "new normal" any morning.  I feel fine at the moment.  We just filled out the paperwork to donate our bodies for research at the university here or if in Arizona, that school.  We have moved all over the country so many times - it just doesn't make sense to claim different states at a cemetery. 

June:  My husband salts everything and still has a salt deficiency.  I told him that I would buy a cattle salt lick just for him. 

Radioman:  Don, I wish you the very best as you get through these next months.  A journal sounds very nice.  Your sons will appreciate the stories.

I'm thankful for a (more or less) easy day at work today.  My favorite CSM (Front end manager) was there today and she's the only one who seems to remember which registers are easiest for me and takes the time to make it possible for me to work those registers. 

I saw some old friends and some WM customer friends and even had time to chat with them. 

We're not going to the Amish store so I went out later, to the library, stopped at the store for bread and ice cream (two necessities) and paid my taxes.  All in all, a pretty good day.

I used the ice cream (black raspberry flavor to make two more little loaves of Ice Cream Bread.  One is almost gone!  It was sooooo good!

Made a mistake on my phone and called my daughter in Texas on Face Time and we had a very nice chat.  That was a plus!

I hope everyone is feeling better, staying dry if it's raining where you are and getting wet if you need the rain.

We've had 5 10 minute downpours today.  No thunder to scare the doggies and time between the storms to go out and do what needed done.  I'd say this was a pretty good day altogether!  I hope it was the same for all of you.

Good Morning Everyfriend!

LLOYD, I think you only see yesterday's posts because that's all there is!  You're the first to post this morning.  I wish you luck with your purchases and your sales, safe travels and lots of friendly visits.

I'm supposed to go to a reunion of Girls Scout Camp staff from my younger years today but Mickie is having some issues and I'm not sure I want to leave her.  We'll see!

Enjoy your day, Everyfriend!  Grab it and make it yours!

 JaneS Thanks and have a great day. and if this works like it should your place will be on our stop and see list some time. but if we get all put together soon we will first go west and south west. I would like to go down to Las Cruces NM where we lived when I was in the service and go to church where we did then. and see how many of any the natives we knew are still there if any. we should have stayed in closer relationship. Have a great day.

Hi Everyone.  We have sunshine this morning after several days of not seeing very much of it.  Of course, our temperatures will be in the upper 80's this afternoon with more chances of shower.  We did get a couple of brief showers yesterday, one of which was enough to do some good.  I did stay home all day yesterday.  Today I plan on attending a meeting at 10:30.   I plan on stopping at Aldi's to pick up a sack of food for our Community Ministries.  We had an email from our Church saying they were very low on food.  This evening we are going to go to Pizza Hut for our main meal. We haven't been there for awhile and it has the added benefit of getting to spend a couple of minutes with our son and at least getting a hug as we leave even if he is too busy to spend a few minutes with us. 

June, your bold posting is easier to read.  I sure understand about the lack of adequate salt causing medical problems as it put me in the hospital overnight when mine got so low.  Since then I haven't had any problem with that.  I had totally lost my appetite over a ten day period and so the little I did eat probably didn't help the sodium level in my blood.  I didn't have the dizziness but sure didn't feel good.  It is a serious problem that can lead to seizures and even death. 

Carol, it does seem that we are experiencing a lot of "new normals".  Nice to read you are feeling good as know that wasn't the case a lot of the time you were in Arizona. My wife also uses a lot of salt and I never have and am very aware if the salt content of food I am eating it a bit high.  I remember we always had a clock of salt for the cows to lick and that during the summer when the farmers and other sweat so much there would be salt pills for folks to take.

Jane, always nice to see when you indicate your had a more or less easy day at work.  You deserve it.  FaceTime is very nice as it is the next best thing to being there.  I visit with my good friend over in Georgia usually once a week using FaceTime and will probably do so this afternoon. I did get your email this morning and can't really suggest anything further than what you have already told Sato.  If he hasn't rebooted his computer since we had the problems he could try that.  I also wonder if he might need to sign in again.  Just guesses. 

Amy, that is a nice sized town.  When we made our last move over in Georgia the little town of Grayson had only one stop light and really no businesses.  Then it started to boom with a shopping center and other new businesses and widening of roads.  The little town had just over 600 population but there were lots of people in the surrounding areas in housing development and they kept building more. 

Lloyd, sorry to read your are having a problem with your laptop.  It sounds like you and Nancy are making progress on your planned selling of the farm items and starting to travel.

Good morning everyone, going to be another hot humid one here. I am so tired of the AC noise. Sitting at the PC it is less than 3 feet from me.

JOY  I am not looking for a miracle just some relief from pain and maybe being able to stand up straight again. Like you I have heard so many good things about it. One of the CNAs was telling me her husband is using it and feels much better. We have not had as much rain up here in RI as you have been having further south.

LARRY  my first glasses were those half glasses, only needed them for reading and when bifocals were needed I never had a problem getting used to them One CNA I have prefers 2 pairs because she is afraid she would not like the bifocals.  I am getting the salve so no smoking pot, that really stinks. I want my head to know what my body is doing, not go flying up to crazy land. I use a CVS pharmacy for my meds only because the local one delivers. For a company that started out small here in RI they have expanded all across the country and I still do not like them and do not trust them. I have learned to count all my pills when I get them because they short change the count all the time. They have been sued more than once. I did call my doctor's office yesterday to tell them about them saying they never recieved the fax.

JUNE  guess we are all needing to slow down. I would not bend to pick something up if I was not holding onto something solid.

CAROL  I was fine till about 10 years ago and the suddenly my body said enough, I quit. Boy did it ever quit on me. Just plain wore out from all the abuse I gave it over the years?

JANE  bet you would love seeing that CSM every day you go to work. I am getting very interested in that icecream bread. Wonder if I could get a CNA to make it for me. Rain will be getting here later.

LLOYD  so happy to read you are finally seling your machinery and cattle and are getting that motor home and start enjoying life. You deserve to start enjoying and relaxing.

JANE  hope Mickie is OK so you can go and enjoy that reunion. You always enjoy  that.

AMY  we have some weird looking clouds  this morning.

Have a good day.

A good Saturday morning HELLO. 

The sun is brightly shinning and it looks so pretty out there this morning. We are to have storms in the area this afternoon.  I love the moisture, but always dread the damaging winds that come with the storms.  The Phoenix area has had some sever storms the last couple of days also.  This morning I was on Face Book and saw that our Boston Families home was in the pasty of a tornado!  I called our DIL and she was not aware of the tornado warning but said it was raining very hard and the wind was real bad.  Thankfully, the warning was lifted just after we spoke. 

LARRY, my cousin had shown signs of demintia but certainly not sever enough to even begin to think she would not be safe living alone.  I can not help but think the anesthesia might have been the reason she became so bad in such a short period of time. She went in for a routine hip replacement and never was able to go back home.  She still calls and cries and cries as she is so unhappy in her new location.  Kate is 8.  She will be nine in November. 

JANE, I do hope Mickie is doing better and you were able to go to your Girl Scout Reunion. Our Grandson, Matt just made Life Scout.  He hopes to be totally qualified to make Eagle Scout in six months.  We sure are proud of him. 

GLORIA, I know many people personally that have used CBD oils, pills and even salves and feel they get a great amount of relief from using them.  As you probably know, Marijuana is legal here in Colorado so there are many stores all over the metro area where you can go in and they are very helpful in directing you to a product that will fit your needs.  Our county will not allow sales of Marijuana, so we do not have any stores close to us. Good luck with trying this, I do hope you can get some pain relief. 

BTW....Incase anyone does not know, it is not illegal to use, buy or even mail CBD’s as they do not contain any THC, aka Marijuana.

SHIRLEY, they are really pushing stem cell replacement here on TV and in the news paper.  I also saw they are working on using fat out of your own body for the same thing.....I could go for that....I can donate all they need!  I am sure the day will come that this cell stuff will be successful but sadly right now I have not met anyone that has had success with it. 😢

I left my post for quite awhile so I hope I can still post it.

Have a good rest of your day, EVERYFRIEND.

Jenny

I am about to look at recipes just to find something different to cook.  My latest quilt needs more fabric for the back so that means another trip to the store. 

My Kindle book reader quit yesterday and I thought it was a dud but this morning all I had to do was insert all the passwords and it is working.  Great!

Gloria:  Have you tried Acupuncture?  It may or may not help and may take several visits.  It you find a place that says "community" in the ad, the sessions are quite reasonable.  Everyone wants to give health advice - just do what you feel like doing and I wish you well. 

Larry:  I remember a woman who had a cabin in a national park (that was taken over by Mr. Clinton's decree - her particular area) who would toss a salt lick out for the elk and moose.  It did draw them to the river too.  But - they are all over the park anyway - and the animals don't respect borders.   ;) 

Hi Jenny!  I think you are in Douglas county too - we do live withing walking distance (for all to know).  I am against pregnant women taking pot for morning sickness - because if it can affect adults brains - they have no idea what is happening to the baby.  --- So sorry about your cousin.

I did go to the GS Camp Reunion and I'm glad I did.  It was fun to reminisce with people who have known me most of my life. 

Carol, I lifted a recipe from the internet for zucchini tuna patties and I'm trying them today or tomorrow.  I still have to get my oomph on and get started but I'm thinking....grate the zucdhini today and make the patties tomorrow and then eat them all week.  I think my getupandgo got up and left.  If any of you see it wandering around, chase it home please.  I need it!

A while back we had a little discussion about girls joining the boy scouts and vice versa.  My gathering of Girl Scouts today had a rather heated discussion about this and also about the disposal of Girl Scout Camps.  It seems we are all of one mind about this!  There are GIRL Scouts and there are BOY Scouts and never the twain should meet...together!  Are we too old for change?

Somewhere along the line in this changing world, girls/women decided they could do the very same things that boys/men do and that women were/are the equals of men.  I have never thought so, but that seems to be the way in this Politically Correct world.  Mentally, yes, I do think we are equals, but physically, I think we are not equals. 

I guess I became too old too soon.

Men and Women are different.
They each have their pros and cons.

I am grateful for what and who
I am  lucky to be...  and have no regrets
at this time...

I for one am more than happy that the day is winding down. Clothes dried with the help of the soalr dryer and yes I am going to love jumping into bed with bedding dried on the line...……..well I had better correct that I am going to ease into bed too tired to jump :)

Finally found something that little dog likes from the garden, golden girl loves beans and peas raw, little girl likes her beans cooked but she will now eat peas in a pod raw.

Yesterday was a mixed up day, I called VON to come check on hubby and what he is going through is caused by the meds. .just need more time for the body to get used to it. VON will also call here this Tue. to check up on him.

Jane, I believe woman and man each have their own uniqueness for want of a better word. Now, having said that I believe GIRL Guides and BOY Scouts is just that. One for girls and one for boys...IF they want to be together start their own group up..do not infringe on what has been for years one for boys and one for girls.  I was in Scouting and thank goodness it was just boys...I can't see them all on a field trip and  as you know boys will be boys and pick up bugs /snakes to scare the girls. We had two colonies of Beavers ,boys ages 5 -7 in the town where I lived. Glad you had a good time at the reunion.


How is Mickie doing?

I think we do not pay enough attention to how and why god made us the way he did. he made us for each other, where we fall down sometimes we do not properly respect each other as we should. and a smile and a tinder hug and kiss
should always be in place for each other and welcome. ( they say sticks and stones can brake my bones but words can never hurt me.) not true sometimes
a harsh word can hurt worse than a hard knock in the nose at least longer. a lover is always better than a fighter. good night and sweet dreams.

https://youtu.be/VGmOl4DpBy4.. (1)PLEASE. watch this one first. (78 years ago this month !) LEST WE FORGET....
https://youtu.be/fhb67HUguXs ..  (2) FOLLOWED BY THIS ONE.
Sorry Gloria !. this one involves a M/C ride, but if you hold tight, you'll be ok ! :-). The country around here is still very much as it was in the 1940's, the rider mentions several times about 'Pillar Boxes' he should have said 'Pill Box's' these are still found hidden in the countryside along the South Coast, Tangmere was a RAF fighter station and in the 1940's was under daily attack by bomber/fighters, while Billy Fiskes Funeral was taking place the fighting was still going on overhead, hand on heart, i cannot say i remember that particular day, but i do remember that period very well,  I hope you find this interesting..

it is true, billy  did sign up as a Canadian to join the RAF,but strings were pulled and he flew into action at the very beginning of the Battle of Britain, over the past years many American visitors must have gone past , or visited this old Priory/Church or museum at Tangmere, few would have know of his grave or the stained glass window in the church.

                                                                                    Cheers. Roley. Enjoy.
