A good late Saturday evening to EVERYFRIEND.

I DO NOT KNOW WHY but I had a hard time finding you all.  Seem I did something wrong, but I am here now. 

Not much new to report.  Our Boston Son and his family flew into Denver this morning. We have kept their car at our house since Thanksgiving, so we had to go and pick them up.  We had a nice lunch together, then they brought us home and headed off to their mountain house in Vail.  I have looked forward to seeing my boys and the time sure did go quickly.  We will not see them again before they return home. 😢

GLORIA, happy to read that you enjoyed your day of shopping with your son and can understand that it takes you some time to recover.  Thank you for sharing the little tidbits you have shared.  They are enjoyable to read. 

AMY, sure happy you were able to get more insulation for your home!  I know how much you love your materials. 

CALLIE, the wind farms are quite the sight to see.  I have seen semi’s with parts of the wind mills on them and they are huge.   Thanks for sharing the info. 

LARRY, the tunnel they are building sounds like it will be worth the inconvenience of the road being closed.  We have a lot of road construction going on here as they attempt to widen the roads that are so over crowded. 

JANE, I was happy to read that your doggies did well having their spa treatments at home.  Glad it worked out well and you will try it again next time.

I enjoyed reading all your comments about out houses!  I have had the joy of using many of them over the years and the number one fear for me was ALWAYS spiders!  My fear of them got me in and out as quickly as possible.  The last one I remember using was at PRoe’s cabin.  It was a fancy one for sure. 

I guess I had best get this posted as I keep nodding off and I sure do not want to loose this. 

I do hope Our June is OK... I notice she has not posted.....

Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

Good morning everyone, 30°. Started snowing around 8 last night and still coming down. The trees are all dressed in white and look beautiful. Does not look like more than 2 or 3 inches but is deceiving from up here. The Maintenance man was out with his small plow at 4 this morning clearing the walks and the front of the building in case the emergency truck had to come.

JANE  I agree about the see-sawing. A few days ago my daughter said it was close to 80° and now it had been into the upper 30's.

LARRY  when I try to do anything these days it is hard and I get worn out, even doing the few dishes after a meal. Then I think back to how I was on the go from the time I rose in the morning and get into bed at night. How did I ever do that.

AMY  you are like my daughter about spiders. If one happens to get into the house she calls her husband to get rid of it. With me it is snakes, hate even writing that word.

JENNY  glad you like what I have been posting. They are thanks to Joan because I saved quite a few of her stories.

Have a good day.

50/50
Bob Perks

I am not an odds maker.  I know little about mathematics, still I can add, subtract, divide and multiply.  Sometimes without a calculator! In my mind it comes down to this.  It either is or it isn't.  You are or you are not.

When I met my friend, Steffe Berdy, she said to me, "I always thought that life was black and white then God dragged me through the gray." After she died, I decided to permit myself to see in between the things of life.

That being said, I also decided that gray must be a transition.  One either "is" or on the way to it. Another either "isn't" or on the way to it. Thus the "gray."

I knew I had to share this idea with you after seeing the movie "50/50."  I was in the audience for the first showing of the movie in our area. It's about a young man who is told he had cancer and a 50/50 chance of survival. For me, personally, it was a very powerful movie. Memories of my son, Keith's battle with cancer shadowed every scene.

"Sixty-five percent chance of survival.  Better than 50/50. But not ninety-five to one-hundred percent. That's what the doctor said about Keith.  But it's more than a numbers game.  It's my son and sixty-five percent didn't sit well with me." (From my book, "The Flight of a Lifetime!")

In my "either or mind" he either would die or he would live.  What we did in the "gray" would make the difference.

At the end of the movie, I stood up in the theater and shouted, "Time is a precious thing.  Don't waste a moment of it.  If you love someone don't wait...tell them now!"

Then I walked out.

Whatever you are facing right now, today, "is" the way it is.

Whatever you choose to do about it, is the gray, in- transition phase.

If you feel so afraid that you tremble at the thought of what might be, then God is shaking you to get you to do something.

Not making a decision is still a decision.  Not responding to the challenge only leaves you right where you are without any idea of where you are headed.  You are headed somewhere.  The Earth does not sit still.  The world does not wait for you so it takes you right along on a journey where you have given up control of your destiny.

No one stays in the gray.  You are in transition, evolving without effort on your part, but still changing.

Some choose to stay where they are because they worry that something worse will happen.  They almost become comfortable with the pain, the darkness, the ugliness of their situation.

"Why doesn't God rescue me?" they ask.

My God is the God of miracles, still he calls upon us to "do" His will, not to waste away.

Psalm 106:43
"Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin."

God feeds the smallest bird, but he does not throw the seed into the nest.  That's why He gave them wings.

He calls on you to act upon your faith, not dwell upon your woes.

God is an action God.  He wants you to "do" not just think about, ponder for awhile, what could be in your life.

You are either happy or sad.
You are either healthy or ill.
You are either a believer or not.
You cannot be fifty-fifty.

Like those who profess to be believers and then when faced with a challenge, doubt that God is there in their life.

He is waiting for you to walk out of the gray and into the "Light" of what could be.

John 9:36
"Who is he, sir?" the man asked.  "Tell me so that I may believe in him."

He believes in you!

"I believe in you, too!"

Good morning Everyfriend!  I woke up this morning too late to get ready and make it to church.  I decided that was a decision I made last night when I went to bed.  My left shoulder has been hurting for a couple of weeks, not bad enough to stop me but bad enought to keep me from sleeping well.  Last night, I did something I rarely do.  I took a couple of pain killers before I went to bed.  And i slept soundly from just before midnight until 6:45 this morning.  By the time I was up and attem, it was too late to make it to church at 8 a.m.  Maybe it was better because I don't know how the roads are this morning and I'm becoming very timid about driving in bad weather.  The snow stopped around 10 last night and the temps have been well below freezing  ever since.  Am I making excuses?  Or did someone take a hand in my decision this morning?

Go ahead!  Make today special!  I'm going to do just that!

Good morning everyone...

A light dusting of snow out there this morning and a temp of +20° F.....I just may leave that snow right where it is. Everything is so slick on the driveway , maybe the snow will stick to it and not be so slippery. If not I had better sand the driveway like I sanded the path yesterday to bring wood in.

A day of rest here...just going to enjoy it.

Gloria...I too have to get hubby to move a spider. If I get bit by one the area goes red, hard and burns but I won't kill them.

Jane, I would think someone took a hand in your decision...hope your shoulder feels better soon.

Better get dressed to meet the day, slept in again :)

Enjoy your day everyone.

Thankfully there is no snow here but yesterday was cold, wet, dreary and miserable.  Today the sun is shining....YAY!

My daffodils are blooming and I saw some ornamental trees along the Parkway that are covered with blooms.  Spring is just ready to burst!  I'm ready!

Hi Everyone.  It looks like it will be a pretty day but will be in the mid-60's this afternoon rather than the 70's and 80's we have been enjoying.  I am up and ready to leave for Sunday School and Church in a little while.  I doubt that Pat will be up to going today.  This will be the first time in 4 weeks I will have attended.  I plan on watching the finals of the PGA Golf Tourney out in California this afternoon.  I did watch it some yesterday afternoon.  Those are my plans for today.  I am still not feeling up to par so that will be plenty.  Pat and I did go out for our lunch yesterday as she hadn't been out of the house for about a week. 

Callie, several years ago we were visiting my sister and BIL in Northern Iowa.  They have a lot of wind turbines and the Community College there teaches about them and has one on the ground.  We were ble to go and stand next to it and it is huge.  I don't think they would work very well in this area as we often don't have much wind.  South Carolina is encouraging solar panel and I read an article a couple of days ago that there are grants from the Federal and State governments that will basically pay the full costs of installing them on your home.  If I were younger and had more energy I might check into it but think I will just leave well enough alone. 

Amy, really saying the material you buy is insulting your home is a little too much.  I think you are like my wife in not needing an excuse to buy fabric.  Nice you found a bargain on the cotton fabric.  I don't mind spiders but just hate snakes.  I haven't seen one since moving here but did see some over in Georgia.  I understand that there are snakes in our retention pond but fortunately that is on the other side of the street.  Of course, I am seldom out in my yard so they could be there and I wouldn't know it. I hope you can enjoy your day of rest as you certainly deserve it. 

Phyllis, we lucked out yesterday and it stayed dry.  Today we have only a 20% chance of rain.  We saw more trees in bloom here yesterday. 

Jane, it sound like you were wise to stay home this morning and not risk the roads or having a fall on the snow and ice.  Glad you were able to get a good nights sleep. 

Jenny, glad you got to spend a little time with your Boston son and his family.  Are they staying a week in Vail?  Had the boys grown since you saw them last?  The road that is being tunneled is the frontage road for i_20.  When they built it they put the tunnel under it but not the frontage road.  A lot of homes have been built now on the land on the other side of the frontage road so the tunnel is now needed as there is considerable traffic on it.  The month or so will go by quickly and the inconvenience will be worth it.  We usually go out the other way as that is the way to our downtown area. 

Gloria, when the trees are all dressed with the fresh snow it is beautiful.  Where we lived in Alaska there was a wire fence beside the driveway of our duplex and many winter morning it was a show of diamonds due to the hoar frost that had accumulated during the night.  I sure understand getting warm out trying to do anything.  Between my heart failure and now the impact of what every I have had these last four weeks I just have no endurance at all and have to push myself to get much done.  I can't even imagine having to work for 8 hours solid plus do a 2 hour commute anymore and I used to think nothing of it.  That Bob Perks piece is another very good one.  I am printing out a copy of it.

Good afternoon, beautiful sunny day, but windy.  The weatherman is not doing a good job so far this year, A dusting a few weeks ago was over 6inches. Yesterday we had warnings about heavy snow storm 6 to 8 in. not much to the west of us, or on the South shore. WE got a dusting and west if us to NY City, got many inches. this coming week is to be like Spring. Could get up to 70 in NYC. I am still afraid of March.

amy, I agree with you about spiders.  One night when my husband was so sick, and on oxygen  in another room. I walked into the bedroom about 10PM, saw Toby our cat looking up into the corner of the ceiling and there was a wolf spider, I started to scream, the size of it was almost as big as my fist.  I did not want to upset my husband, so I kept quite, got a can of spray, shut  the door and started spraying up.  I almost knocked myself out before he fell to the floor. I scooped him up in paper towels, and through him in the toilet. Never did tell my husband, Now when taffy look up at the ceiling, I still get panic.

Lloyd, we did not have any heat up stairs, just a register in the floor. we had a coal stove in the kitchen and dinning room. WE kept bricks in the oven and hour before bed time, I had to wrap my bick in a towel take it upstairs and put it in my bed, so it would be warm when I got into the bed. Had to remember also to bring it back down in the morning.

Gloria, thanks for Bob P, readings, I agree with the one about Math. I can still add, subtract pretty fast, with out help. I know I have slowed down, that's why I have a house keeper, every two week.My first one Jennie, would do the house in two and a half hours, have her lunch here and go across the street and clean. After her auto accident, she was not able to work, so my neighbor Diana said she would take care of my place. Age does make a difference, as she is nearly 75, and it takes  her 4 hours to do what Jennie did, plus she also did the bath mirror  which Diana has yet to do.  I must admit she does take time to talk more, as she is also my neighbor, so she has to tell me all the gossip.

One of the few times I ever saw a doctor, when I was growing up was when I was bite by a spider on the leg, and it got infected. the other two time, I got bit by a water rat, while wading in the river. Next time I saw the doctor, I had trench mouth, from putting my mouth on the water fountain in school. I was given icecream, so I did not mind.

Jenny glad you got to see your Eastern son, if only for a little while.

Larry, I am not afraid of snakes. Mark had one he keep in a fish tank. When we bought it he told the salesman he wanted a female snake, the man said:" I cannot tell the difference" and Mark said give me the fattest. Would you believe she gave birth to a lot of little ones, but she ate them  :eek:
Another story when we moved to SC, the first year I was invited to and Easter Egg hunt  at Goose Creek, by the Cooper River. WE were told to watch for ground rattlers. Being from NY, I never thought of looking out for snakes. I was 16 at the time

I think I had better stop I have written a life history.

A good Sunday afternoon to all.

We have been watching the Genesis Open......thought sure my boy Phil was going to pull it out, but once again it was not to be.  I 💕 Lefty!  Taping the Daytona and Olympics. 

We are going to dinner at Dr. Dave’s.  We have not spent any time with them since the wedding, as they have so much going on.  Mama and Kate have been downtown since Friday night as Kate has been attending a dance academy at the convention center.  She will be one tired little gal as she has been dancing all day long and it will not end until 4PM. 

It has been a beautiful day day, but a storm is coming so we will be cooling down quickly and snow is in the forecast. 

MARYANN, happy to read that you and Dot did make it to church and to the Cholesterol Pit.  I can understand your not wanting to have others join you as it is your special time to visit together. 

50/50 was appreciated, GLORIA. THANK YOU. I sure wish we would have a visit from Our Joan.  I sent Joe a message awhile back asking for a update, but he did not respond. 😩 I believe he is in Italy right now, so no chance for a update. 

LARRY, yes, the family will be in Vail until Friday when they will head back to Boston.  It is a short stay, but that is all the time they can afford with the children being in school. Oh yes, the boys both had grown and are both looking so much more mature.  We have not seen them since Thanksgiving weekend.  They both are doing great in school and seem to have adjusted to their East Coast lifestyle very well.  We are not planning to go to visit them until September, but they will be here in Vail for a month this summer. 

Wishing I would see a post from Our June......I do hope she is just busy and not too ill again to get on line.  😢😢

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday EVERYFRIEND. 

Jenny

Hi Jenny, I am finally here, somewhat....here is my story.

" My dear, dear kids,
   Gary just called, and informed me he had told you of my latest escapade...or as Gary says, "My attention getter".To start from the onset, I was thirsty, so me and my cart went into the kitchen to get a glass of water, I was drinking it, had a brain lapse, or what I understand in a TIA...like happened when you and Nancy and I were shopping in Hemet, and i collapsed on the sidewalk. Next thing I knew, I was laying on my back, half way from the kitchen to my bathroom floor, with my cart tipped over onto my legs. I pushed my emergency button that I wear at all times. and here were two nurses from downstairs. They are not allowed to move me, and before i knew it my space was filled with Paramedics and nurses with a gurney in the hallway. They found I was rational, and started doing all the usual tests and asking me questions, etc. I said I would like to get off that hard floor, so two paramedics took my hands and whoosh..I was up and sitting on my bed.Then came all the tests..heart, blood, jokes......my choice...and the strictest orders from me that I would NOT go to the hospital. I have been that route and you end up laying on a guerney in the emergency ward for two hours before they find a bed for you...I do not recommend it. So before they left I had to sign a thing that said I refused hospitalization. Now if I were bleeding to death  or unconscious I would have no choice.So I am home where I intend to stay. Nurses from our facility are in and out at all hours, just checking up, giving hugs and happy thoughts…………………………….
   Sunday, Feb.18, Third day after my fall and  still feeling shaky and weak and very tired. Staying in, …we'll see how things progress. I do get out and walk the hallways…took books back to the library , so I am operating, but no dancing yet……

They notified my doctor, but she didn't come over.  The female paramedic checked out all my vitals, and did the heart thing with all those things they paste on your chest and back, but no results given..I guess they go to my Dr.So I am more or less diagnosing myself. I have had three TIA's in the past, and they just happen. no warning, I just wake up and find myself prone...no warning at all. So that is my written excuse for being A.W.O.L.

I'm just going to take it slow and easy and let the body settle itself down. And the mind too....my brain is still weary so we rest. Keep well and happy my beloved freinds. I love you much. June :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Sandy....dastardly things is right. No warning...we just wake up on the floor...no warning, we don't even have a chance to get scared. This one is taking a little longer to recover, but it is some years since the last one. and of course at 93 years of age it takes more time to regain what we lost. Thanks for your understanding my friend.

Mary Ann, thank you for your message. We do have to listen to the body in most cases.

Amy, :thumbup:You are correct. For 93 years this body has listened to me order it around, now it is getting the upper hand,and what devious ways it has to get even. But since there isn't a new body living in my closet somewhere, I have no choice but to let this old one rule. And be thankful.

June, I am happy you are so well taken care of AND had the good sense to push that button.  I'm not sure what happened to me the day I found myself laying on the floor, looking up at the ceiling thinking "I don't remember getting down here".   I had a terrible cough & had been to the Dr the week before, but didn't have enough symptoms of what was to come so think he/they were too busy to work me in again & had me go to an EM clinic a few miles away to let them check to see if I had pneumonia.  I didn't make it clear that I had passed out. After going to the wrong place first, I was too exhausted to go through all their other demands of going to another place to have my head examined.  I just wanted them to listen to my lungs & knew I didn't hurt my head, (they don't "listen" anymore!)  Now I wonder if it could have been a TIA, all I considered was the pneumonia risk.  You do have a great place to be and I am grateful they take such good care of you.  Your happy posts are always welcome (& missed).  God Bless & thank you for checking in.

So happy to see you are back with us, JUNE.  I have to admit that I have been worried because if you are able you always post to let us know you are OK!  As sorry as I am to read what happened to you, I am thankful that you did not hurt yourself in the fall.  Of course you are just going to have to take it easy and let your body decide when it is ready to let you take over again! Hugs and good wishes for you to gain your strength back so you can feel much better very soon.

We enjoyed a fun evening with our kids....now I am off to watch some skating.

Pleasant dreams to all.

Good morning everyone...

Beautiful sunny day here.... :thumbup: Temps are to rise  this week with rain on Tue ,Wed and Sat. sure hope it isn't freezing rain. They said there may be flooding in some areas to the south of us.

Yesterday was a restful day, we took the garbage to the dump and for the rest of the day I sewed...just need to put two more borders on it, make the binding and it is good to go..

June, I hope you feel a bit stronger today, just take it easy and let your body catch up to you. :)

Better get a move on here.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning Everyfriend!  What a nice surprise to come by and find June.  JUNE, I'm so sorry to hear you have fallen again but glad you don't see to be hurting.  I hope all's well by now and you will have forgotten any ill effects.  We missed you!

The fir girls and I are sitting here waiting for the boinger to let us know it's time for breakfast.  We slept better last night than we have for a while.  Kind of feel rested and ready for the day!

Mornin' Amy!  You kind of sneaked up on me!  We're supposed to have rain later today...beginning around noon and lasting until early evening.  The temps are predicted for the high 30 so I don't think it will freeze...just make mud for the dogs to track in!

I hope you all have a good one!

Hi Everyone.  We are expecting a cloudy day with only a small chance of rain today and a temperature this afternoon of around 75 degrees.  I did go to Sunday School and Church yesterday.  We had only a single Worship Service as probably 100 or more of our congregation were at an annual  weekend family retreat over at a camp ground in Rutledge, Georgia. I spent the afternoon taking a long nap and then watched the last couple hours of the golf tournament, the evening news, and a couple of hours of the Olympics.  It is pretty amazing what some of these ski and snowboard jumper can do in the air with the twists and turn and then land going backwards.  It is a wonder they have survived all of the practices without breaking their necks.  The only thing on the schedule for today is the tech from the Medical Supply company is coming around noon to check out my oxygen concentrator.  This is just a routine visit that will occur every three months as I am not aware there is any problem with the machine. 

deAngel, our weather forecasters often experience the same thing as yours. They can anticipate with the information they have but can't control changes that may occur. Like you I don't remember going to the doctor very often.  When I was very young our town had an old doctor and I knew who he was but have no recollection of having been treated by him.  I did have my tonsils out at a fairly young age and almost bleed to death when I got home.  They used ether for the antiseptic and I can still recall that awful experience of the smell of it in my mind.  I do remember getting ice cream when I was able to eat something and that was special as it probably was homemade.  I enjoyed your long posting as I find our experiences in our pasts to be very interesting.

Jenny, Phil has done well in the tournaments this year.  While he hasn't won he has been up there in the prize money this year and he had an opportunity yesterday to win until those last few holes.  I hope you had good time with Dr. Dave and his family last evening.  Sure hope the storm isn't too bad for your area.  As fast as time goes by you will soon be seeing the Vail family on their summer vacation.  Glad the grand boys have adjusted to their new schools.

June, thanks for sharing your message to your son about your recent health experience.  It sure is good read that you came through the TIA without a broken bone from the fall.  Thank goodness for the emergency button that you keep with you at all times.  I am also thankful you live where you do and that you have such good medical care immediately available to you.  There was probably nothing  your doctor could do to treat you from the TIA that the nursing staff can't do.  Keep resting and let your body heal.   

Shirley, it sounds like we both had the same type of coughing although I haven't ended up on the floor.  I think after four weeks the cough is pretty well gone and I felt the best yesterday that I have since all of this started. I was also concerned about pneumonia and was checked four time (two of these were from scheduled doctor's appointment).   Do your wear an emergency button?  If you don't please treat yourself well and get one as it is money well spent and they really are not expensive.  My best friend has Humana Advantage plan insurance with Medicare and they have provided him an emergency button that he wear around his neck and he has no monthly charge.  I am sure it would give your family a great sense of relief to know you could summons help wherever you are, even down by the river or while traveling in your motor home.   

Amy, I sure hope that flooding stays away from your area. 

Jane, glad you had a good nights sleep and woke up feeling rested.

Good morning everyone, finally woke later this morning, just before 6:30. T hat waking up near 4am was getting me into bed at night be tween 8 & 9.Had a lot of snow melting yesterday afternoon, this morning everything is covered with frost. 21° now and Wednesday the weather guessers are saying near 70° on Wednesday. If that happens it would break a record set in the early 1930's.

JANE  when something hurts for a couple of weeks it is time for a break from it. God knew you needed a good sleep and that was needed more that going to church yesterday.

AMY  my daughter will not get close enough to a spider to kill it, she just hollers for Gary, before when he was working she would call one of her sons. She has never been bit by one.

PHYLLIS  hope we do not have anything blooming early here. Every time that happens we get a freeze that kills blossoms and then spring is not beautiful. My son lost his apple crop a few years because of that. I would love seeing things blooming now but will enjoy it more in the right time.

LARRY  my SIL has a few solar panels up and is going to put  more. One of their neighbors used to install them professionally and told him he would help. They also have a windmill to set up, that would be for pumping the water from their well. Every thing takes time. In the little over a year they have moved there they really have not had time to just sit and enjoy. Like you I have a fear of snakes. I will delete an email, shut off the TV just because one is pictured there. Joan would be happy to know that something she posted is still being enjoy ed here in the SS. I have a lot more on my first external drive. If I could get someone to plug it in I would have more of them to post.

JENNY  I wish Joe would understand how much Joan means to all of us and want to know how she is doing.

JUNE  glad to see you this morning but not happy to read what happened to you. Glad you live where you are and get help so fast. Take care of yourself. Just come in and say hello so we know you are OK. Hugs and prayers.

AMY  enjoy the warmer days before we are back in the deep freeze again.

Sometimes I feel...
Bob Perks

Sometimes I feel that the world is too much.  God reminds me that I am a part of His world and He has much to offer.

Sometimes I feel, that as hard as I try I am nowhere near where I wanted to be at this point in my life.  God reminds me that the journey may be long but it will be worth it and I am right where He wants me to be.

Sometimes I feel that there is too much for me to do.  God reminds me that I am not doing it alone.  Take each step wisely and put things in perspective.

Sometimes I feel that there are too many mountains to climb.  God reminds me that He made the mountains so that when we reach the top we are closer to Heaven, we can see where we've been and the beauty of where we are going.

Sometimes I feel that when I am excited about life no one else around me is.  God reminds me that is why He placed me there to bring excitement to those whose lives are weary.

Sometimes I feel like God doesn't hear me.  God reminds me that He does indeed listen and respond.  It is I who blocks out His Voice when I don't like what He is saying.

Sometimes I feel that no one understands me.  God reminds me that He understands and that's all that matters.

Sometimes I feel that the world is closing in on me.  God reminds me that he is there even in the smallest spaces.

Sometimes I feel I am failing,  God reminds me with Him I cannot fail.  Delays and denials are not failures.  There are more choices, better ways to get me to where He wants me to be.

Sometimes I feel at peace.  God reminds me:

Galatians 6:16
New Life Version (NLV)
16 Those who follow this way will have God's peace and loving-kindness. They are the people of God.

Good afternoon, Sunny day, with warm temps.

June, so glad to read your upbeat post.  Sorry to hear about your TIA, but I join everyone else, happy you did not break any bones. I understand you, not wanting to go to the hospital.  Last time, I was in the ER 6 hours, before they found a bed. I also have had 3 TIAs first time I was at work in the hospital.  I could not remember my birth date, when they ask me all the questions, so the doctor sent me HOME for a week. Had to check with her before I could come back to work. Now you take it easy, as others have said, I think you are in a great place, they do look after you.

Larry, at my age, and anyone else living alone should have what I call a panic button.  I have used mine 3 times so far.  My cousin who lives around the corner from me fell on Veterans Day,  When she got up to go to the bathroom during the night. She broke her hip and layed there 12 hours, till someone came to pick her up to go to dinner. She  NOW has the button.

Amy, Happy Family Day. When I was in Iceland Many, Many years ago, they had Family Day on thursday, no TV!

Jane glad you were able to sleep[

Maryann, I woke up during the night and Taffy was sleeping right at my back.   Generally she sleeps on my legs.
