AMY, I'm sure glad you didn't plan your day!  If you had planned all that stuff you'd have been tired before you started.  Now for me, I've already done all the "nuthin" I can take!  TLH has been here all day and we've just been goofing off!  All that goofing off is tiring!  But I'm sure glad she still liked to come here!

Too many interruptions here, I did take notes and with all the calls and roofing survey - (we have a leak), I then threw away all my very good and logical notes for each of you.   :D

A meatball soup is simmering and the broth tastes OK - it is my own concoction so there is no one else to blame - Don is used to my experimenting. 

Take care everyone.  Don't walk on ice or try to drive on it either.  Goofing off is excellent therapy for peace of mind.

Tisie, when ever something usual happens to my body, I really research the symptoms, as I am ever so curious, and talking to a doctor does not satisfy me. I am only getting his medical opinion. I want to know the symptoms, reasons, results….the whole picture….and and with the computer we can do that. We have the Mayo clinic available plus many other places that are eager to dispense their knowledge.

Jenny, my friend, I surely value your caring,and appreciate you in so many ways. We are so blessed with the deep friendships we form here. Folks that do not have computers are amazed at how we learn to love one another here.

Amy, thank you for caring. You seem to have missed me first this time. I'm not there yet, but inch by inch…..I had a message from our clinic that they have made an appt. for me with my doctor at her clinic this coming Thurs. I didn't want to go, but they contacted my son,and he is for it, so I will do it. I hate being out in the traffic but we have an excellent young man that works for our clinic in transporting patience. My Gary has a dental appt. that day so he is not available.

Janie..stuff happens, and I seem to had an affinity toward TIA's and falling. They just help themselves to us.

Larry, thank you for your concern. We all have something don't we? But the wonderful thing is, we have each other here on this marvelous internet.

Gloria, yes, my Gary found this marvelous place for me, run by the Quakers, and they DO care. It is like family. 

Gloria de, no bones broken but some very sore muscles from hitting the floor. I am SO thankful to live here where everyone is so caring. God is so Good.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

JUNE, I'm so happy to see that you are feeling "chatty" again and you are right.  People who don't have what we have here simply don't understand.  I think my kids try to understand.  I heard my daughter tell someone,  "she has all these friends who tell her all kinds of things and keep informed about what's going on and what to do in certain circumstances and where to look for stuff.  The share recipes and remedies and information and just plain friendship."  When that person asked where I made all these good friends, my daughter said, "on this really neat website especially for senior citizens."  I kinda think she understands.

CAROL, you are absolutely right!  Goofing off is one of the most important things we can do!  And it is good therapy!

I'm going to bid you all Good Night.  May God's peace be with you through the night.  And may you return to visit us tomorrow!

We are having cooler weather in Ca. now. Our high today was only 58, going down to 38 so I have had my furnace on low today.

I had my supper delivered tonight..didn't feel like visiting. It costs six dollars for delivery and I figure I am giving some young student a part time job as well as enjoying my own peace and quiet. I went down for breakfast this morning, which I rarely do and it was tasty.

Now I am ready for bed and book......an interesting novel..from our Libraries Christian Novels section. A young man in the WW11 serving in the Navy..some fiction, some history. I like it.

So, off I go to get ready for bed and book. Looking forward to being with you, my computer family, again tomorrow. Prayers, Hugs and Love, and God's Peaceful Blessings. June

Good morning everyone...

Well,I tried to stay in bed I was listening to the gentle rain falling but couldn't go back to sleep. I am sure that after Tue Wed a lot of our snow will be gone due to rain.

VON comes today and that is all that is on the agenda. Yesterday hubby had me a bit worried with a BP reading of 78/60 but it did come up to a better reading. I am going to mention that to the VON today.

We hear from June,she had a TIA, now to hear from Lloyd, he usually posts each day but is MIA.

June , a visit with the Dr may find out why the TIA happened and hope to prevent it from happening again.

Gloria, I copied your Bob Perks, it reminded me that no matter what we are never alone.

Gloria de..not all Provinces have Family day, only Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. Must be frustrating for others that are trying to do business  with those that have it.

Larry, it is great to see you posting the way you normally do .Can understand you being tired, you have had a lot of sleepless nights and your body needs to catch up!

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning Everyfriend!  The doggies and I are waiting for the boinger for their pill this morning.  In the meantime, I made the bed and got myself ready for work and I still have a few minutes to spare before we have our breakfast. 

I think I'm ready for my Cleaning Dynamo this morning.  She'll be here when I get home from work and the house should be about half done by then.  I hope you all have a lovely day today.  Fill it with things you love!

Good morning, Jane and Amy and all the others who follow.

Good seeing the message from June.   June, I do hope that either your son or Dori will be able to accompany you to your doctor's appointment,.   You should have someone to be able to be with you.  Maybe Gary can change his dental appointment.  Or,  maybe one of the nurses could go with you.   Hope you can work something out.  I am not comfortable going to the doctor's alone anymore.   My DIL has been taking me for a while now, and I am so grateful.

It is a partly cloudy morning here, but, supposed to get sunny and temperature's in the low 70's.  But, it will be short-lived.  Lots of rain by the week end.

I am slow moving this morning. I was able to fall back to sleep when I first woke up around 6.   Need to find some breakfast and then read for a little while before I have to get on with my day.

Hope everyone will have a great day.

Joy

Hi Everyone.  We have a little fog here in our neighborhood and I expect there is a lot more down by the river.  We are predicted to be in the lower 80's for the next 5 days or more.  The tech came and checked out my oxygen concentrator yesterday morning and all was well.  I called and found out that after about 13 months this piece of equipment will become mine and I won't have a monthly co-pay on it as is now the case.  So by the end of the year that medical expense should be over and that is good news.  The calendar is clear for today.  Last evening Pat and I decided we would go down to Pizza Hut for the evening buffet today so don't have to worry about what we will have for dinner.  I just fixed her breakfast of scrambled eggs with peppers and onions, bacon bits and cheddar cheese.  I think I may try to get started on my taxes this morning although still missing one piece of the puzzle that always comes in mid to late March and prevents me from filing earlier.  I had a very good day yesterday and got up this morning feeling good so think what ever it was that put me down is now over. 

Gloria, I am already seeing some of the early blooming trees in bloom and some of the grasses greening up a lot.  Like you I worry about another hard freeze and also what impact this will have on the peach and other fruit trees that produce a lot of peaches and other crops.  Last year we have similar weather and then a hard freeze that did a lot of damage.  I remember when you son lost the apple crop.  I agree with you all that it would be good to hear something of Joan's condition.  That is another really good reading from Bob Perks.  I am copying it and putting it in my devotional readings folder.

deAngel, a few years ago my wife's Aunt in Florida went out into her back yard without her panic button after returning from Church where she had been with family.  She fell and broke her hip and spent the night outside on the patio as no one could hear her calling for help.  Now I know they have these panic buttons that are waterproof and can be worn in the shower.  I know I have written about this event before but is a good reminder why always keeping it with you is so important. 

Amy, it sounds like you tried to accomplish a week's worth of work in one day.  No wonder you were very tired.  I hope your day today will be much less stressful.  Like Jane said I felt a bit of weariness just contemplating doing all of the things you mentioned in one day. That was really low blood pressure but the diastolic number was good.  I am glad it came back up for him. 

Carol, your meatball soup sounds delicious.  We are eating a lot more soup than we used to as it isn't hard to fix and we have found that Costco has delicious soups, a container of which makes a big meal for both of us.  The last we had was tomato bisque and it was delicious and I am not a big tomato  fan.

June, we are fortunate to have a number of reliable sources for medical information available to us on the Internet.  I also like to research on these recognized medical sites.  I know you don't want to go out to see the doctor but it probably is a wise thing. Nice that you can have your meals delivered when you need them.  Aren't libraries a great thing and especially in situations where you can't access an outside library easily if at all. I am starting to read ebooks again, something I had almost stopped doing before I had the cataracts taken off.  Yesterday I discovered that the Wall Street Journal was offering a special deal to receive 2 months of the digital newspaper for $1.  I have always enjoyed reading some of the articles in it but it is just too expensive to subscribe to.   

Jane, I think we have to experience the type of friendships we quickly develop here on these senior sites.  It connects us to people who really do care for each other. 

Joy, it is good for someone else to be with us when we see the doctor.  Pat and I find it is hard to remember all that we have been told.  Fortunately they now send us home with the diagnosis and any instructions written out and that is helpful. 

Lloyd, it sounds like it will be a good day to stay inside and away from any ice.

Good morning everyone, crazy night. Slept 3 hours and woke. Read for a couple hours and finally back to bed. Woke about half hour ago. Wish I could get back to the way I used to sleep till a couple of weeks ago.  Tomorrow God willing I will get to see my little great grandson. My son will pick me up at 10am so I most likely will not be here. My DIL is going to cut my hair while there. She is not a hairdresser but does a better job than some I have been to. There is a retired hairdresser who comes here and I tried her  twice. Charges $20 and takes 5 minutes to cut my hair. Second time I paid more attention. Same towel around everyone under the cape, same comb, scissors and razor without being cleaned between customers. Maybe others  do not care but to me that is unsanitary.

AMY  I get worn out reading all you do every day.

JANE  wonderful how close you and TLH enjoy each others company. How old is she now?

CAROL  you sound like my daughter, experimenting with food. She will follow a new recipe once and after that is they like it she will add or leave something out and change it. Nothing is ever the same twice.

JUNE  I know people who have nothing to do with computers can understand how a group of strangers from all over the world can come together and feel closer than families. Wish I could afford a place like Gary found for you. Glad nothing gets you down for long. You are missed so much when you do not post.

AMY  like you I have missed Lloyd's posts, hope he did not have another accident and is back in the hospital.

LLOYD  about time you posted. You know how we worry about each other here. Glad you are OK.

LARRY  53°here now and tomorrow the weather guessers say we will get to 70°. Sure far from normal here for February. I have nothing growing outside but know what happened to my son's apple trees a few times with this early warm up and then the freeze. I agree, Bob Perks wrote some very thought provoking stories. I have one of those buttons but only works in my apartment, from my insurance. Not much good because I do not stay in my apartment 24/7. I love soup as long as it does not come from cans.

A Father's Prayer
Edgar Albert Guest

Lord, make me tolerant and wise;
Incline my ears to hear him through;
Let him not stand with downcast eyes,
Fearing to trust me and be true.
Instruct me so that I may know
The way my son and I should go.

When he shall err, as once did I,
Or boyhood folly bids him stray,
Let me not into anger fly
And drive the good in him away.
Teach me to win his trust, that he
Shall keep no secret hid from me.

Lord, strengthen me that I may be .
A fit example for my son.
Grant he may never hear or see
A shameful deed that I have done.
However sorely I am tried,
Let me not undermine his pride.

In spite of years and temples gray,
Still let my spirit beat with joy;
Teach me to share in all his play
And be a comrade with my boy.
Wherever we may chance to be,
Let him find happiness with me.

Lord, as his father, now I pray
For manhood's strength and counsel wise;
Let me deal justly, day by day,
In all that fatherhood implies.
To be his father, keep me fit;
Let me not play the hypocrite!

I'm home and I had an express register the whole time I was there so not as tired as usual.  However, I NEED a cup of coffee so I'm going to go make one and enjoy it while I wait for the DYNAMO to arrive!  Enjoy the rest of your day....

LARRY, so good to hear you are feeling up to par again!  Stay that way!

Amy dear,I am well aware of what causes a tia, and there is nothing to be done for them..
   A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a brief interruption of blood flow to part of the brain that causes temporary stroke-like symptoms. The risks for TIA are the same as for heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease, and include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and family history.
   I have PAD, as well as age. I was a long time smoker,  a good B.P. reading for me is in the mid one hundred fifties. No diabetes, thank God. I have had a great life, enjoyed it to the fullest, Faith is what keeps me cheerful and thankful.

Joy, I try very hard not to tie my "kids" lives into mine. I was a "kid" at one time, took care of my Mom, and then my brother, she had alzheimers, brother had multiple problems…lungs mostly.  We have a young man here that works for Rowntree Gardens and does driving of patients daily as his job. He is paid through them, and then I am charged his expense on my monthly rental bill. I prefer it . My kids do so much for me, I want to  spare them when possible. We are having sun today but still cool….62 for a high.  I am so happy you have a good daughter to rely on, it really means a lot to us to have good "kids".

Larry my computer has taught me so much. I use it daily to investigate everything from religious faiths, to medical things, to correct spelling and meanings, and of course our wonderful friendships. You have generally good weather all year long, right ?

Gloria, I too wish you could have a place that gives so much care to it's clients, and sincere love and care. It is amazing.

A late night check in....

I lost my post last night and was just too tired to try to rewrite it. 

Thought I would get in earlier but have been on pins and needles all day.  Mark and Megan were driving the moving truck and her car yesterday from LA to Paso Robles.  They got the household goods unloaded and turned the truck back in.  This morning they drove her car back to LA, finished packing a few things in Marks truck and his trailer, turned in the keys to that house.  Packed her car with their kitty and hit the road again.  Mark just called a few minutes ago and they are at their new home safe and sound.  Now I can take a deep breath and relax.  Mark starts his new position on Saturday and Megan has two job offers and will decide which one will be best for her. 

We had quite the snow storm yesterday and into the night.  It really got frigid last night and did not warm up much today at all, so most of the snow remains.  Temps will be way down again tonight then tomorrow we will start to warm up a little. 

JANE, I am happy to read you had the express register today at work, making your day a bit easier then to come home to the cleaners arriving to make your home nice and clean for you.  I always love reading about the TLH being there with you and what you two do when you spend time together.  Such a special time to have one on one with our grands.  I enjoyed reading what your daughter said about your friends in the senior group.  Sadly, I think many of our kids really do not comprehend the special friendships we have with other’s here in S & F. 

Thank you! GLORIA, for another good read with A Father’s Prayer.  Happy to read you will be going to your sons home tomorrow to be with the family.  Enjoy the baby and good for you getting yoour hair cut by your DIL.  I do not like the thought of the unsanitary ways of the hairdresser there at your place and having to pay $20 for just a quick hair cut.  I understand and too, wish Joe would realize how much we care and feel the need to have updates on how Joan is doing.  😢

JUNE, happy to hear you sounding good and definitely feeling stronger.  Your temps are a bit on the low side so thankfully you have a control the furnace to warm your place up.

Same thing with you, LARRY.....you are sounding so much better and feeling like you are nearly back to yourself after that terrible cold and cough. 
I do not know if you have already made a choice regarding a walker for Pat, but I thought I would share with you that I really like the rollator that I have.  It is rather expensive, but I find it allows me to get around very. well and would be a good one for Pat. 

I have been watching the Olympics and writing this.....I best post it before I accidentally hit the key that wipes this post out like I did last night.

I hope you all are sleeping well and will get a good night of rest.  Pleasant dreams, EVERYFRIEND. 

Jenny

Now for the hard part of re araingeing all the things. my next full move will be when they cart me to the funereal Home. except we plan on selling the farm and getting a class A mortar home and doing a bit of traveling before we change worlds. have a good rest of the day when you wake up again. I am going back for a few more ZZZ's.
we have had rain and then freezing  rain and sleet and they are saying we are to get snow this after noon. so I am going to feed the cattle and watch some more T V today, be a couch jockey again today. have a great day everyone.

Good morning Everyfriend!  it's already 40º this morning with a prediction of 71 for later in the day.  There is also rain in the prediction.  I'm really getting tired of the rain but I like the temps.  These are what I call "teaser" days!  I know winter isn't finished with us but it's a nice change from the winter.  I'd prefer 70 and sunny but we can't have it all.

I'll be off to WM this morning again so wish me smiles and short registers.  Yesterday was a good day.  I met up with an old friend and had time to catch up on his family doings.  We agreed that we're going to keep on going until we can't and we're not giving up!

I wish you all a good day!  Make of it whatever you wish!  It's yours!

Hi Everyone.  It looks like we will get to 80 degrees this afternoon and it is already 68 degrees as I begin my day.  I awoke at 3:30 this morning and just couldn't go back to sleep.  So about 5:30 I got up and showered and dressed for the day.  Other than dinner at Church is evening and Scott and Jennifer coming out afterwards I expect today to be a pretty quiet one.  I did get most of my income information summarized and ready to enter into my on line tax preparation program, which I will probably start on today.  We did go to Pizza Hut last evening and they were very busy so other than to give our son a hug when we came in and when we left there was no time for him to sit and visit with us for a few minutes.

Gloria, sorry to hear you had trouble sleeping and hope your night was better last night.  I hope you have an enjoyable time with the great grandson.  That is something that is missing in our lives as we just don't have much of a relationship with our great grandchildren and didn't have with our granddaughter until she moved here a year ago and we have been able to spend time with her.  The friend she had visiting for a month or more has returned to her home in Kentucky but plans to move down here soon as there are more opportunities for a job here than where she lives in a small town.  I think she has already pretty much adopted us as her surrogate grandparents.  She is only 19 and soon to be 20, but a very industrious person who I think has had a difficult young life from what she told us.  Pat never makes the recipe the same way twice but her dishes made are almost always very good.  Unfortunately her days of doing much cooking are pretty well past as it is just too painful for her to stand for more than a few minutes.  I am trying to help her as much as I can like gathering the ingredients but I am not a cook.  Glad you have the panic button device that at least works in your apartment.  The one we had for Stacey worked like a GPS and was available to her where ever she went and she didn't stay in her apartment but went all over Atlanta.

Jane, always nice to read you had an express register for your shift.  I hope you had a great time with your granddaughter yesterday. 

June, I can't help but being inspired when I read your postings.  You accept whatever life has to offer and find a way to find joy in most of it.  I agree with you on trying to limit what we ask of our son although he is willing to help when needed and I am confident he will take good care of his mother when I am no longer in the picture.  I will also use my computer to find the proper spelling especially of medical words or words that my spell checker doesn't have.  Fortunately, I have always been a pretty good speller and can usually think of some alternate words if I can't find the right spelling.  However, I know that none of us would ever criticize each other over misspelled words or the wrong use of grammar.

Jenny, it sounds like Mark and his wife made the move well and things are working out well for them on this move.  Yesterday I had the feeling I am pretty well recovered as was looking for things to do and enjoying the day.  I plan on resuming my normal weekly activities for the rest of the week. 

Lloyd, my sister-in-law sent us a picture of the ice on the trees around her apartment yesterday and said the icing was suppose to continue until around 6 pm yesterday.  It sounds like you are getting some normal winter weather with more snow today.  It sounds like another good day to stay inside.   

Amy, glad your husbands doctor was not concerned with his blood pressure.  It sounds like you are getting a little better weather although the ice doesn't sound good.  I think most parents will always be interested and concerned about the welfare of their children regardless of the children's age.

good Morning again I am up for the day this time except for a possible nap while watching T V after feeding the cattle. @t 7:14 A M it is 20º cloudy the clouds are rolling from the north east, so must be AMY and JaneS fault. we started yesterday with rain day and night before and continued most of the day yesterday then switched to sleet  so we have a good coat of ice still. don't get mad ladies we still love you. AmY just keep the warmer temp coming this way.
I am sure ready for spring here. I bet if the old cows and horses could talk they are also. but yesterday when i was feeding both cows and horses were running kicking up there heals and cows were some of the butting heads pushing each other around. fun to watch them playing like young kid's.
Have a great day I best get off here and go eat and get out and feed them.

Janie ,our temp is dropping tis 34° F now , giving the water a chance to get away. We went into town and I noticed lots of puddles in peoples yards.
Now we are missing Shirley, did she go a gallivanting again and I missed it?

Hubby said let's go out for lunch and I didn't need much coaxing...over we went to our favour place and he had mushroom soup and we ordered a sandwich to share. These are on homemade bread cut an inch thick with a pile of meat,tomato,lettuce ,shredded cheese and I had onion on my half :thumbup: even half is more than enough.

Now to go sew... :)

I've been going through stacks of cards from all occasions, about to take a shower... no brainer jobs so time to think.  Back in my mother's era people had "card showers".  Mom loved sending cards and appreciated getting them and was always a happy day when the postman brought a whole stack.  Now we've all missed Joan, we don't know if she is checking in here BUT, if anyone knows how to reach Joan's kids to ask if she would enjoy cards from us.... how about it?  We would need an address to mail to, either to one of her kids to take to where ever she is staying, or to her room.  How about it?  Anyone care to ask IF she'd like that?

I think the chill index has come up to 1 degree, got more freezing rain/sleet or snow heading our way by this afternoon.  I have not checked the actual temp but talked 2 of the cats into going outside while I take a shower & wash my hair.  Poor babies, they really didn't want me to close that door but I can't trust Callie (mama cat) in alone.  I have to close off the basement & all other rooms when she comes in, so I can watch her  She uses the litter box in the garage but not sure she would if I put one in the laundry room by the garage door, and I don't trust her downstairs at all.  Anyway, got a list of jobs to take care of so be back later.  Better hurry or I will have frozen cats.  Tiger is trustworthy & doesn't want to go out, sleeping on the bed behind me.  I will have to close the door to the bathroom because she loves to follow me & sit on the register (so the room gets cold).

Hi, Amy, I'm just bogged down with "details".  The glasses prescription the Dr gave me this week is not what we talked about so after visiting with the lady about glasses, I will have to have another conversation with the doctor.  I'm holding out on taking a 100' tape out to measure the fence with this icy wind, need to start the generator in the RV to make sure it doesn't get "gunked up" and won't start if needed.  Wouldn't start the last time I waited this long, but I was waiting for a warmer day.  Anyway, nothing serious but just all kinds of little things filling my day.  Your soup & sandwich sounds good, one thing I like about Panera, can order the half sandwich or salad & smaller bowl of soup, just right for me.

Panera is great - I have their rewards card - always like the blueberry scones.  We really like Kneaders - it is a larger bakery and has soup, sandwiches, and salads as well - closed on Sunday.  I say, Good for Them.  People need one day off at least. 

Amy:  Terrible news on the possibility  of losing your Maple syrup this year.  Denver had a 72* drop in 40 hours and it is good that they do not grow much in that high desert area.  Tough on any landscaping though.  Blood pressure can be so unstable - sometimes you have to take it three times in a row.  Wishing you a calm day without such interesting shocks. 

June:  Your living quarters sound just perfect and with great care. 

Lloyd:  Don would tell you to get the place sold and retire so you can enjoy life.  Take care.

Shirley:  I worry about you - when you are going out to fix something on the RV and other things.  Do you take your cell phone?  Just mentioning this because I know no one would hear me if I fell and called out and here you are in the country.  Nice idea - the card shower. 

Sandy:  Love the picture of your little one - crossing her legs--- so cute.

I think we will watch one more hockey play-off this week.  We can stream it on the computer - yell at the screen to "Pass", and "Shoot" - I mean, the puck.
