Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm in a bit of a hurry this morning.  The doggies and I are awaiting the boinger for their breakfast and then I have to get ready for church.  It's my turn to read the lesson this morning and I always like to be a tiny bit early for that. 

After church, I need to make a quick stop at WM to pick up some items to finish potato salad for a picnic this afternoon.  I've been adopted by my BIL's family and have attended their family reunions for years.  This is the BIL that I refer to as my BROTHER (no in-law)  I've always told him he's the big brother I always wanted!  He is a special guy!

OOPS!  There goes the boinger!  Enjoy your day Everyfriend!  Do whatever suits your fancy!

Almost forgot!  AMY, Mickie still has the itchies really bad but I'm treating them with baking soda and it seems to help.  She isn't sick...just really ITCHY!

Good morning everyone..

Didn't get the rain or t storm that was called for...and they are calling for it today also!!
A day of rest here,other than meals nothing needs to be done.I made pizza for supper last night and there is enough leftover for lunch and I have some chicken  cutlets for supper. Made a large batch of tapioca pudding and that's dessert.....a lazy day for sure.

Jane, neighbours dog gets the itchy and it if the grasses now, he give Rex a Benadryl, maybe ask your vet if 1/2 a pill would be alright for Mickie.

Both dogs are sound asleep still so I had better go wake them up for their breakie and a run outside.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Hi Everyone.  We are to be in the high 80's again today with the possibility of more isolated thundershowers.  We did get some more rain yesterday.  I plan on going to Sunday School and Church this morning and getting something to bring home for lunch.  I woke up around 2 am this morning and then laid there for an hour and decided I might as well get up for awhile.  Pat has been having problems with her laptop so decided it was time to refresh the operating system so I did the back up and took pictures of the desktop for reference to put it back in order.  While her files remain during the back up all of the programs I had loaded on it must be reloaded.  So I have several hours of work ahead later today but should have it pretty much back in shape by this evening.  I have done this numerous times on different computers over the years so know what is required.  After I got the reset started I laid back down for a couple of hours.

Yesterday afternoon I posted the Instant Pot Potato Soup recipe in the Cooking discussion and added it to the Index.  Pat said it could also we made in a crock pot.

Gloria, I have worn glasses, including bifocals and then progressive lenses for many years.  I am looking forward to getting the bifocals that I ordered from Readers.com.  I have never counted the pills in a prescription bottle but perhaps I should.  I have several medications that come in sealed original bottles. 

Jenny and Carol, I hope your area missed the storms yesterday afternoon. Those were some pictures of the dust storms arriving over Phoenix.  I don't know how one could breath in a dust storm like that.  I didn't realize there was a county option in Colorado regarding the sales of marijuana but sure that doesn't stop anybody wanting to buy it. 

Carol, I have heard that quilt backing need you described numerous time and had to wonder if it was just a good excuse to get back to the fabric store.  I tease, of course.  It has now been a long time since Pat was up to going to an actual fabric store and now gets all of her fabric online.  Glad your Kindle book reader was dead but resting.  I have always had to chuckle at the road signs for deer crossings as wonder who taught the deer to read. 

Jane, nice to meet with old friends and be able to reminisce.  Are boys allowed to join the Girl Scouts? Hope you have a great time at the family reunion today.   


Amy, it is sad when the medicine makes one feel bad or sick. 

Lloyd, the Bible tells us that the tongue is sharper than the sword.  Words can hurt if we decide to let them.  Personally I am not going to waste my time worrying about what someone says to me or about what someone may think of me.  I just want to be me and to be happy. 

roley, sure you have some vivid memories of the war.

Amy, I will check out the link your shared.  Glad you are going to have a day of rest today.  We went to the Pizza Hut last evening for our dinner and it was so good that we ate the whole pie.

Good morning everyone. Today will be the beginning of a heat wave. Can already feel the humidity climbing. One of those tornadoes was quite close to the new house my grandson and his family now live and close th the house he sold.

JENNY Thursday my CNA had infprmation and the link to that CBD. I ordered the salve at 11 am. Got an email from them arou 3pm that it was shipped. It was in my mailbox on Saturday. Have not tried it yet because I cannot reach my back and left hip area so my CNA can do it today.

CAROL  I get email from Taste of Home loaded with all kind of reciped. I signed up to get this hoping to find something that would tempt me but saw several but too much work for me.

TasteOfHome@email.tasteofhome.com

I did see one for casseroles but have not checked that  yet.
I would love to try accupuncture but insurance will not pay for it. I know it does work because I have seen it done on a couple of folks I know and surprising ho fast it made a difference. Would that for surgery instead of being sedated.

JANE  that Taste ot Home site a few days ago had a lot of zuchini recpes. 

PETER  saved both links and will watch when I finish here. I am very slow getting started this morning.

Have a good day, stay cool and safe.

Can I scream???? :knuppel2: :knuppel2: :knuppel2:

I can't tell you how many times in the past week I've been awaken by the phone.... a call from either a political person (or their fanatic supporter)... either to harp about how awful the other person running is or a "survey" .... "punch one or two......"  And do we really believe it is a US person or someone from India or other scams?  I had just gotten sound asleep this time & heart is pounding like I ran the 2 minute mile at this rude awakening.  Not a human to explain "don't ask me to push buttons".... Idiots, I told myself that I was going to keep track of every politician's call and NOT vote for that person.  They are invading my privacy, NOT welcome in my home. Do they think we don't have sense enough to research what each stands for?  Unbelievable number of 6"x 18" cards in the mail... I do save to use as "icky scoopers" in the RV (when Tom throws up).... and serve as very efficient litter scoopers that cats drag out all over the floor, better than any dust pan, trust me!   Tirade over, heart down to 120 so will try to finish my nap.

Shirley, I sympathize with you on those calls.  I have Caller ID so I don't have to answer if I don't want (and I don't want), but that doesn't keep the phone from ringing.  I know they use phone numbers of users so last week when a call came from Dot, I answered it and was surprised it was a political call.  The calls I get are all from "unavailable" and Dot's is that way too but I do know her number.  I wonder how many calls I've sent to people.

Caller ID costs me $10 a month and it is well worth it.  Few of the calls leave a message and if they do I can shut them up immediately.  Yes, how stupid do those people think we are?  Read Rick Rammel's quote at the end of his message and you'll find the answer.

Mary Ann, I have caller ID but have 9 phones in this house, most are portable (AT&T) that show who is calling, 4 are ancient wall or free standing that have 40 numbers programmed in, one has an external caller ID attached but had to remove from the other because it was interfering with the house wi-fi.  One other (a slimline that I can reach from my shower) doesn't have caller ID on it.... so most of the time I just grab & gripe! My husband loved gadgets, never answered the phone himself, HIS bathroom only room in the house without a phone.... & I just remembered one more... bathroom off the utility room, makes 10.  What can I say???  I'm connected.  ;D  I also love Rick's quote.... so true!

I hate that "they" think it's okay to interrupt at meal time... OR my nap time!  Or any time! 

Gloria, I get e-mail from some magazine that came with Better Homes or something.... recipes always interesting but I'm not looking to cook except for something I already know how to fix.  I can't think of the name but you'd probably recognize.  Always have a new "group" of famous chefs or restaurants favorites or countries, regions.... bet I could forward links on if you'd be interested.   ;)   You are my first buddy "doing pot"..... my grands will think you are cool, I'm sure. Seriously, I do hope it helps & agree about the smoke part.... can't be good for the lungs if smoke is involved, right? 

Before I forget again, want to be sure Lloyd knows that Walmart carries their own version of Rand McNally road map... be sure to get one at the local Walmart before heading out.  They show all Walmarts, show ones that allow overnight sleeping, a life saver when caught in between campgrounds.  I always stay my first night at 8,000' in Salida parking lot before going up to the campground. The one in Salida started limiting ONE night only because too many were filling the lot.  We spend a lot on groceries & have bought RV batteries & always fishing license, etc.... so I don't feel guilty about using up a parking spot.... they post the outer edges where permitted. Anyway, the atlas is well worth the price when you are not sure where you are headed & don't like to rush to get there. 

I do not like commercial campgrounds where you can hear the people snore next door.  I love the Corp of Engineer campgrounds in MO, lots of trees & plenty of space.. and electric hook ups.  Only places with electricity in Colorado are State parks or commercial ones, we prefer National Forests with lots of trees & run the generator now & then to use microwave.  No TV at all in CO unless you go commercial campgrounds, but can use DVDs if you have electricity.... or like my sons, have a battery they solar charge during the day to watch movies at night.  Cats & I go to sleep at dark. 

Good luck with the motorhome, mine will be 4 years old in a couple months & it has taken this long to fix "most" of the problems, at least the first year the company paid repairs, they even had it back in the factory for a month.  Actually, need to take it in for an alignment since I found out most do not get an alignment AFTER all the stuff is added to the chassis.... crazy, huh?  I still love camping & traveling, but besides cost of gas, would be a lot cheaper to stay in motels or go to resorts.  Hope you enjoy yours as much as I've have.  Safe travels........

Oh, Janie, did I ask you before what food you cook for your pups?  My sister used to buy chicken legs to boil with rice & other stuff for her pets & to feed our sister-in-law's dog... (SIL was not into cooking).  I'm not sure cats would eat rice.... I used to cook it for the baby ducks.  I've spent my life feeding critters, these cats are the most spoiled.

Time for the cats midnight snack... going to try to get sleep tonight since my nap was cut short.  Never even got back on the bed. Sweet dreams to all  & God Bless.

Just checking in before I head off to bed...

We had Dr. Dave, Matt and Luke here for dinner tonight as Kate had a Birthday Party to go to and Mama’s always go too when they are this young.  I made a meatloaf and boy did it hit the spot.  We had baked gold potatoes, corn on the cob and a homemade peach cobbler made with fresh Palasade Peaches from the western slope of Colorado.  Boy oh boy was it yummy.  I am still full.

Matt is spending the night with us and we are going fishing in the morning.  School starts here Thursday.....I can not believe their summer vacation is over already! 

I hope you all had a good Sunday....sleep well and pleasant dreams.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I had a lovely Sunday!  I got to spend time with my sister and brother, my niece and her husband and my two favorite grandnieces.  My Brother (in-law's) family always makes me fell welcome.  They are such nice people and there are a couple of them who always bid me good bye with "see you next year!"  And the nice thing is, they mean it!

My niece's husband is a shift manager at the Starbuck's roasting plant in York, PA and he can't pass a Starbucks without stopping and tteating everyone to their favorite drink.  I thought I should take advantage of his being there and get a pound of coffee to take home.  So I picked one out and had my wallet out to pay for it.  He and my niece had a short talk and he turned around and said "NO CHarge!  Suzi says we don't need andy this week so we'll take as our freebie for you."  They get one free pound a week and I got it this week!  Wasn't that nice of them!

JENNY, your dinner sounds scrumptious!  You did yourself proud!

Don't know what I'll be up to today.  I have no real plans until 3:30 when I'll be off to Wally World.  Wish me smiles.

I wish you all a great day!  Grab it and make it yours.  Do whatever your heart desires.

Good Morning Everyone from
the hot and humid rocky coast of Maine. 
Today is a good day to stay in out of the heat,
which is what I plan on doing

Shirley, Shirley, Shirley...   Nine phones?   
That is an invitation for lost sleep and wrangled
nerves...     

If i were you,  and I am not or course,  I would
pick out one phone that I could carry around with
me...   there are small ones these days, 
and I would unplug and box up ever other one.

I have one smart phone that I leave in another
part of my apartment when I sleep at night... 

There isn't any call that can't wait until I
wake up and get my day started.     I am not
that important any longer.    Bad news travels
fast and will come knocking on my door if
it is real.       

I never, ever, ever answer a number I don't know.
Or talk to political calls..    EVER!!!

As long as I control the incoming and
out going calls...  I am happy and better off,
and sleep like a baby when I am not
up using the bathroom...   :smitten:

Good morning everyone. Boy was I mixed up yesterday, kept thinking it was Monday.The witch and her lackey were not here but then Monday is a state holiday. We are the only state that still celebrates VJ day, the end of WW2. They will not be here today, Yipee. Jept wondering why my CNA wasn't here at 10:30 as usual. Checjed my schedule and found she will be here at 12:30 today. I almost called the office to find out where she was. Glad I didn't when I got  up today and turned the TV on. Wondered why yesrterday why  the progras I watch during the week were not on. I really was messed up. Going to be a hot week, even at night the weather gal just said will be upper 70's at night.

SHIRLEY  i always check the number that shows on my phone and do not answer unless I know the name or number. At  night my family know not  to call me after 9pm becaus I will not answer the phone. During the day it is another matter. With Cox the number shows on the bottom of the TV. Then I will ignore or pick it up.

LLOYD  alway a thrill to hold a new greatgrand baby.

AMY  I will be glad when my CNA comes today and can spread it on my back. Have my fingers crossed.

JANE  your Starbucks freebie reminds me how Joan's DIL Kate kept her supplied with DD coffee. God how I still miss Joan.

Have a good day.

Hi Everyone. It is a beautiful and sunny morning.  We are to be around 90 degrees today with a 40% of some afternoon showers.  I had a good nights sleep last night as was really tired as yesterday was a busy day with Church and working on Pat's laptop.  I did get her laptop all back in order late yesterday afternoon after spending 4 to 5 hours working on it yesterday.  I don't have anything on my schedule for today.  I have already fixed Pat's breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen and will just take it easy the rest of the day.  We haven't decided yet what we will have for dinner tonight. 

Shirley, I want to join in a a scream as most afternoons while I am laying down and perhaps sleeping my phone rings with one of those calls.  Like Mary Ann I don't ever answer them as there is no name attached but the damage is done and I usually am then awake for the rest of the time I am laying down.  I love your use of the political cards we get in the mail.  Mine go immediately in the waste basket.  I also mute political ads and lawyer ads on TV.  That is a lot of phones.  We used to have several land line phones through out the house but now Pat and I each have a cell phone and that is all. I keep mine on my belt or by the bed. 

Jenny, how nice to share a special time with Dr. Dave and the two boys.  That sounds like a delicious meal you fixed.  The schools in one of the Augusta counties is starting today.  Those in our County don't start until the 20th.

Lloyd, it can't be a bad day when we get to hold a little great grandchild and be around other family members. 

Amy, I hope you aren't having any serious computer problems as they can be so annoying.  Enjoy your Civic holiday and hope you can stay out of the evening traffic.  If you are all are like us we pretty much stay in after dark anymore. 

Jane, glad you had such a nice Sunday with family and friends.  Nice you got the pound of coffee and the price was right.  I hope you get a lot of smiles at Walmart this afternoon. 

Sandy, I agree news that is either good or bad can wait until morning.  You have your emergency alert so really don't need to keep a phone nearby at night. 

Bubble, always enjoy your posting and it is a comfort to know you are always there to keep an eye out for us and help us so much with these discussions.  I agree with you that Jane does have a way with words.

Gloria, it is easy to get mixed up on our days when basically most days are like other days especially when one doesn't get out much.  Did you get the salve that you ordered?  If so I hope it brings you some much needed relief.  Like you I miss Joan and so many others that have been a part of our Internet family over these many years.   

Mary Ann, I know some of the politician aren't that bright but it is only logical you are going to tick people off by using someone else's phone number in making a call.  I guess I am cynical but I really don't trust any politician anymore but guess they are a necessary evil and even those that start out ethical seem to be corrupted in a short while.  (I hope this isn't too political for this discussion and if I please accept my apology but they are just my general thoughts.)

The problem with having a stroke,
is  my brain does not function like it usually does.   

Reaching up and pressing my "I've fallen and can't get up"
button located around my neck, hopefully will be
possible.       

Making  a phone call?    Impossible.
Sometimes I can hardle move...  and
trying to make sense out of what is happening
just doesn't work... or happen. 
My brain turns to mush and logic disappears. 

I live alone so there is no one to depend on, 
and if there was someone there to depend on,
would they recognize the problem enough to get
help?     

Probably not.   

Anyhow...    It is a nice day today,
and I am looking forward to friend visiting this
week...   Good news!

Have a good day,  everyone ..
Sandy

Unwanted phone calls - our phones are not easy to read the caller so I end up being frustrated by the robots calling.  It certainly is a different world when we cannot protect ourselves.

Lloyd :  Sorry that you had to sell your draft horses - I know you cared tenderly for them. 

Jane:  I admire your grit!  Going to WM and dealing with the public.  Our WM is herding everyone to the self-check lines and many times has only one person at a station.  Zucchini memories - one job I had at a publishing company was in an area where everyone had a garden.  You should have seen the donated veggies stacked high in the lunch room area.  Everyone made bread and other things with the bounty.  It did get a bit crazy trying to think of new recipes. 

Larry:  I made chocolate pancakes for a late breakfast here - I found the mix at an International type store.  Not enough chocolate though - it could use more choc chips.

Sandy:  I did not realize you have suffered a stroke.  Do you have a button that senses a fall?  I hope you can find some way to have someone check in with you.

Hello again, Everyfriend!  I've spent most of the morning at my desk.  I decided not to do anything that needed a lot of physical energy and save it up for WM.

I want to thank everyone who commented on my "way with words".  I wish I could extend that "way" to face to face contact.  I'm never as good in person as I am on paper.  Back in school, when everyone was whining about having to "write a PAPER" I was rejoicing!  I could usually come up with a pretty good grade on paper.  And if it gave me a chance to use my own words that was a bonus!

Bubble, you started all that by posting on here.  I, for one, miss your posting in this forum.  I see you elsewhere and we have some fun together but seems the only time you post here is when we need a housecleaning or you have something on your mind.  I'm proud to be "on your mind" today.  Thank you!

I've managed to finish a lot of "desk" things today and that's a load off my mind.  Now I'm holding out for a late lunch so the doggies can hold out until I come home.

SHIRLEY, I noticed a note to myself that you had asked what I cook for my doggies.  I buy a premix that is dry and contains a lot of veggies and some whole grains.  It gets reconstituted with boiling water, then you add some oil for their skin and protein (meat, fish or eggs) to finish it off.  It's not hard to do and when I'm going away and leaving them with a "sitter", I can make ahead and freeze it.  But it does seem to keep them healthy.  I also add a powder that I buy from a place called EARTH ANIMAL that protects them from fleas and ticks.  It must work because in ten years, they've had NO fleas and I've only picked 3 DEAD ticks off them.

I suppose that was a lot more than most of you wanted to hear but blame it on Shirley,  She asked.

Now I think I'll go feed my body and rest my brain until it's time to go to Wally World.  Wish me smiles!  I wish you smiles, cool breezes and lots of friends!  Be happy!

[img]we are facing a HOT one today..94,and the wildfires up North and really bad.It will take many  generations to grow back, if ever.I an still struggling with the "doings" of the lap top. Now Gary has his family,, son, wife, and three little ones visiting, so mama will have to wait.

My dizziness continues. I have read all about it from Mayo clinic. Nothing deadly in most cases. 'thank God, I can still read, and read, and read.
And I love reading all your messages. Forgive me for not answering directly. I don't trust my own, till I click "send"....so I will......

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

My strokes were about 5 years ago and
I do have people that stay in touch with me... 

I follow doctors orders and keep my blood "thin"
so that the AFIB will not cause clots to form...   
Of course there is no guarantee,   but I look at it
as "we all have something"  that get's to us eventually,
otherwise  we would all be living a whole lot
longer....   

(And what would they do with us?)

Have a great day,  everyone!
Sandy

Jane, I can say the same as you: " I'm never as good in person as I am on paper." My dad was the same.

Also "Back in school, when everyone was whining about having to "write a PAPER" I was rejoicing!"
The same happened to me; not only that but I was writing that paper for 5 other students and the teacher never even imagine the writer was the same person.  We six always got top grades. They helped me with my math and chemistry lessons.

You are right, I post only when I have something to say. I am not good with small talk or socializing in general.  It's a failure that my mom deplored.  I admire the way my daughter manages to have great exchanges with total strangers in less than five minutes.

And Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm in a bit of a rush today.  I have a dr. appt and it's a bit of a drive to get there and its pretty early, too.  They had a cancellation and called to see if I wanted to fill it.  I did and I am.  So I wish you all a great day.  Make it your own and fill it with what pleases you most.  Forget the dust bunnies!  They'll wait.  Have some fun!

Good morning everyone, going to be another hot miserable day. I have not been out  since Saturday. Will stay in till this heatwave leaves. There was a tornado just over the border in Mass. too close to where my grandson and family now live. The city it hit bad is where we used to go shopping. My daughter saw it on TV in Arizona and recognized the city. She called me and asked if she was right. Shocked her, this is something new here. We have had tornado warning this year and never had that before. Only one was in Worcester, Mass. many years ago  must have been about 60 years ago and was a surprise. Did a lot of damage.

LARRY  I am beginning to believe politicians like their jobs because they can line their pockets. I am so tired of it all. I do not get the annoying calls anymore. Maybe because I do not answer the phone. I ordered that salve Thursday morning and got an email mid afternoon that it was sent. I got it in Saturday's mail. I cannot reach my back so yesterday my CNA used it on the sore and it back felt  better. I only CNAs 4 days a week so will get it put on at least 4 times. My son was telling me yesterday that the wife of a friend had stage 4 cancer and started using the oil. Puts a few drops under her tongue and now she is stage 3 and tumers are getting smaller. That sounds promising.

CAROL  I get phone calls and I do not know the number I let the machine take it and so many times they hang up or they leave a message I can tell they are phishing for some scam or other.

JANE  I envy you and June for your way with words. I use to many words where a few would do. Oh I would love those cool breezes. I do not like summer weather.

JUNE   I pray that dizziness will leave you. Thank God At least I am not dizzy.

BUBBLE  my daughter can carry on chatting with everyone she meets. Her father used to say her mouth would get her in trouble but she has more good friends than he ever had.Thank you for the link, she is adorable.

JANE  love the smile on Emma. I know it hurts that you cannot be with her  and hold and cuddle her. I was like that with my daughter s 2 sons. She did send me many pictures every week.

Have a good day and try to keep cool.
