Good morning...

Tad late in getting here. Had a slow dance this morning with the shovel. Not enough snow to get the snow blower out but enough it had to be moved. Then off to town to pick up meds and pay bills..

I knew about the tomatoes and apples also get a gassing.

https://agresearchmag.ars.usda.gov/2007/oct/apples#:~:text=To%20slow%20the%20proverbial%20sands,naturally%20regulates%20ripening%20and%20aging.

I also like cold tomatoes but a fresh picked tomato still warm from the sun in a sandwich is also good!

Patricia, I think in time that is the way all our food will be grown, in hot houses.

We have stands and today our Mennonite one is closing for the winter. There are farmers markets in the city but we rarely go to them.

Shirley, one thing I have noticed with the trugs and they need watering.or peat moss in the soil to hold the water. I have all the parsnips and carrots out of the trugs now .

Jane, passing you the crazy glue......you can use it to put your frozen b*tt back on. :thumbup:

Better start the bread making..

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Aw, Amy, they do gas my fav apples (red & golden delicious) and I'm sure that is the difference I see in them the last few years! For sure I will be searching for any local grown that are grown, picked & sold without seeing the gas chambers. Thanks for any & all tips with the trug.

I'm in mouring about the tomatoes & apples being gassed.  :'(  :tissue:  :bonk:  :cussing:  :dontknow:  :creepy:  :surrender:  :ugh:

Good morning; I'm getting a late start today because I was up until four this morning. I couldn't sleep for no apparent reason, so I slept in until ten. It's presently twelve now and plus two outside.

This is back to our usual winter weather, no 100-year snow dumps so far, stranding travelers and leaving people living in the hills with no way to come into town. And no electricity losses due to heavy snow on the wires with electrical personnel and dump trucks and graders coming north to assist our few available crews and machinery with those 100-year repeated snowfalls.

Plus, those living outside city limits, along one of the rivers, or in the ridges and foothills above town must pay for their road maintenance, sewer, and water, usually through neighborhood associations.

We don't have Amish here but have Mennonites living south of us. We do have some Russians living here, but the ones similar to the Amish are the Old Believers. They split from the Russian Orthodox Church for similar reasons, and at the same time, the Amish split off into their own churches. They dress very similarly to the Amish but in 18th-century Russian clothing and drive cars.

The two types of Russian immigrants both farm altho they do not mix with one group following the Russian Orthodox Church and the Old Believers their churches.

I've been busy all day and I'm beat right down to my sox right now.  I'm heading for the haystack because I still have some stuff to do to get ready for a visit from my Maryland daughter.  When she comes here, so does Frankie because that's her mother.  so it's gonna be a busy weekend. 

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  If I'm not here, I'll be back on Monday after everyone goes home.  Then I'm going to Christy's for Thanksgiving...riding down with Frankie on Wednesday, staying a few days after the holiday and then Christy will take me to my sister's house in the Harrisburg area for a visit with her.  I'll probably be gone at least a week!  And now....GOOD NIGHT, EVERYFRIEND!

Good morning..

Cloudy this morning with a temp of 20° . We did get  a light dusting of snow overnight, but not enough to dance with. :thumbup:

Catching up around  here and baking .

Jane, enjoy your time with your family.

Patricia, my heart goes out to those in Buffalo NY...... can't imagine 4 feet of snow all at once to deal with.  That is the directin David has to go on Sunday and I sure hope the roads are open.

Shirley, I read this also about gassing.
 Ethylene gas is used to turn green skin to orange. This process is known as "degreening", also called "gassing", "sweating", or "curing". Oranges are non-climacteric fruits and cannot post-harvest ripen internally in response to ethylene gas, though they will de-green externally.

Better scoot.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

I'm still mulling over the gassed foods, nothing is what it appears to be. My world just took another nose dive and I didn't think it could go any lower. Sorry, I'll get a head adjustment & be back later.  :tissue:

Enjoy the time out, Jane!

Good Morning Everyfriend!  Christy is on her way and I'm not ready!  Have a good day!

Many years ago I was sent to Buffalo to work and train for a couple of months, there was a local saying that if Summer fell on a Sunday they would have a picnic. In front of the building I worked in they would put rope between the parking meters for grabbing when the wind got to be too much. Luckily I was not there in the Winter.

Amy, some years back, I was in a group similar to S&F, Thirdage,  and one of those was a woman from Buffalo. I could not conceive of their winters, even looking at photos she sent and of the deep passageways carved through the snow at times.

I searched and found the news about Buffalo and their lake effect snow. Seventy-seven inches in one storm is the very definition of a wet climate!

Nothing is going on today. Yesterday was a recuperating day, as I couldn't sleep the night before. This morning I had trouble waking up.

Jane, I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

Sandy, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  :hb2:  :hb2:

I hope everyone is having a weekend, as Lloyd says, just as you like!

Amy

Patricia,  I was watching the folks trying to dig out of all that snow. Digging out is one thing but having a place to put the snow is another and they are in for more !!!

Rick, I can't imagine wind that strong.Gosh, one would walk bent over in that wind.

My friend sent me an email to say 3 duck hunters had their boat capsize. Another fellow in  a canoe heard them yell ,went over to help and they capsized the canoe, now all four were in the cold water. Luckily their yells were heard and another duck boat went to their rescue. My thought was......where were their life jackets??  They are all fine, shook up but alive..

A quick Good Morning Everyfriend!  Christy is getting ready to go to Brunch with her long-time best friend!  They met in 6th grade when the schools came together and they've been friends ever since!

Frankie is still sleeping but Cooper met me in the kitchen and had his breakfast and then we took a (very productive) walk and almost froze.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDY, and lots more to come!

Now i'm off to greet Frankie.  I think she's getting up!

I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning..

The dance is over..snow is all cleaned up for the time being. Those to the south of us were blessed with more snow than us.

Now to just laze the day in...works for me.

Jane, have fun!!

Happy birthday Sandy, hope your special day was filled with surprises.

Enjoy your  day and stay safe.

GoodMorning everyone.well I am just up at9:15 AM. Nancy went to church and left me a note on the table to as where she Is.I had a hard time getting to sleep,could not get my miend to stop wandering. so was after 4:00 am when I finely went to sleep. when i wike up I turned the TV on to our church Live an listend to the cermain.that Is second best. would have beenbetter if I had woke up and gon to church with nancy. see you all later.

Lloyd

Shirley

Sandy, a very Happy Birthday.... I'm gonna just keep on singing the birthday song this week, had #1 son the 17th, oldest gr-son today, Andy's wife & a gr-daughter tomorrow, & a gr-gr-son the 22nd. Got a couple others a few days later so we do have a "list" when we celebrate Thanksgiving & birthdays all together! Hope which ever day was yours was a GOOD DAY!  :hb3:  :hb2:

Rick, we have winds, yep, WE HAVE WINDY DAYS & weeks. Nothing in the western half of Kansas to slow the wind down and I honestly can tell you that when you cross over the bridge in west Wichita you can tell the difference.

Amy, I can't imagine anything worse that being dunked into that icy water!  I do wrap up with even scarf over mouth to breathe through, & look like a mummy when I go out to work or play in the cold. Still prefer winter over summer.

Going to get my sweats on & snuggle down for a little more sleep. Fitbit says I had 4 hours and one minute sleep and only a few minutes of that was deep sleep. 

Oops, you snuck in, Lloyd.  I made it to church this morning but am thinking by next week I may have to give up. This oxygen isn't doing all I hoped, but tried~~~ The church I go to also has it set up for TV so we will do what we can, right?

HAVE A GREAT DAY, EVERY FRIEND!

Unbelievable snow levels!

When I lived in Anchorage, which often had 100-mile winds due to being on a narrow strip of land sandwiched between the sea and mountains, I had to once grab a low railing on a fifth-floor open passage to keep from being sucked off the building. They would have small planes upended, and those corrugated green plastic parts tore off buildings. I had cuts on my hands from holding onto that railing so tight.

WELL Nancy has gone to Bed and I am going to follow very soon. good Night and sweet dreams. I hope to see you all tomorow in good health and spirrits.

I free handed draw a 5 head wheet head pattern on the front of them. i cheet and use carbin paper and draw pictuers of  owels, eageals and horse heads among  few other things.  I have made a desk out of mahogeney, and a hutch out of red oak, very large with two glas doors on both ends front.and in between the glas doors some shelves. I do not reamber how to take pictuers and post hem here In S&F. but I will try to get my grandeaughter to and post a picture of them. We have the hutch and desk here so that may not be too hard to do. I will to try to reamber to do that tomorrow.

Good morning..

No new snow here but pink sky in the east...hmmm snow coming??

Going to just work around home today, need to finish off a quilt before I can start another.

Jane, enjoy your time with your family. Does Cooper get to sleep with you or does he make the rounds?

Patricia, can't imagine winds that high!! Shirley, I like winter, when it behaves over summer. Don't care for the wet snow as it is difficult to move.

Phyllis..hope all is well there..

My friend told me about a turkey he saw in the grocery store$75.00 for it.. Told him of the photo my son sent of a prime rib roast.8 lbs for $ 204.00. Ansered back his turkey was cheaper plus you can do a lot more with the leftovers!

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good morning everyone. well it is november monday the 21 st. I am up but that is all with onley one pit stop on the way in here. I still have to go do my vitials and send the results in to VA. and figuer out what to do for morning meal. I am as tired or tirder than when i went to bed. do not reamber most of it or want to eaither. but I dreamed about thing of longago. too much bad all around now days, even from friends and familey. and price of land has gone out of sight.  a man yesterday told me that he sold 20 acers for 80,000 $. all of our years of saveing is not much more than what we have in saveings with eward jones saiveings and loan.

Lloyd

Lloyd Hammond

good Morning everyone. well AMY I love you and your post's But even tho the snow puts free nitraigne in the soil, you may keep your snow up there, I will buy what i need for my raised beds,and let mother nature take care of the yard. My lazey back side has spent too much time with TV and let them go. Nancy just called breakfrest so I best go see you Later.

Lloyd

JaneS

I'm up and about!  Christy is about half way home right now and I missed her before she got out of the driveway...and it's a very short driveway!.  She's supposed to text me when she gets home!  We had a good breakfast before she left.  I think I might have invented a good, quick one!   A slice of Lebanon Bologna (or lunch ham) in a little casserole, drop in some grated cheese, break in an egg, add salt and pepper and more cheese on top.  Put it in the microwave for a minute or so and put it all on a toasted and buttered English Muffin and enjoy!

I have work to do around here.  I have a cleaning lady coming at 4 o'clock for an interview.  I'm not sure if I'm interviewing her or she's interviewing me!  Let's hope that whatever it is, it works. 

I have to go get ready for Cooper's arrival.  Frankie works at 11 today so it should be pretty soon!  We had a great weekend!  I loved every minute!  Now I'll be getting ready to head to Christy's for Thanksgiving!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Amy ? for you If I spel it corect( grinville canada) a friend and I used to haull horses up to there. we went in to the holidayin to eat. they had a huge roast at the beginning of the sorguas board. I held my plate out to get a slice and so fast, and that frickeman put two slices on my plat before I could draw it back. we went on through the line and got plenty of other foods. they catered our drnk to the table. we both cut a bite of the roast. i looked over at my freind glean , and he was chuwing slower and slower. he said you do not know what you are eating do you. I sais roast. he said yes horse roast. the hroses we took up there wers sick and crippled. they kill them quick freez them and fly them to france it is called a delicay over there. do you all eat horse meat there knoweling?

A good Monday HELLO to EVERYFRIEND 🦋

My goodness, I have been so busy enjoying life in San Francisco I just have not taken the time to check in on my very special friends🤪🤪🤪

I have looked in though to see how you all are doing, but just did not post a word....shame on me😩‼️

I am rather put off by all the gassing that goes on with our fruits and vegetables as many of you are.  A couple of times I bought bananas that NEVER ripened and were told they must have missed their "gassing"‼️ We are lucky I guess that the things we buy have any taste at all. 

We truly have been enjoying each and every day that we are here.  The weather has been perfect and I feel so good to not have to have the oxygen on here at all.  Overall I feel so much better‼️

Last Thursday we took a drive down to Stanford University and checked out the San Jose area.  Oliver Doodle was delighted to be out and about and enjoyed himself too. 

Yesterday we drove across the Bay Bridge to visit my fist, and very favorite, cousin and his family.  It was a delightful time that passed much too quickly. We drove all around the Warf and enjoyed seeing all the craziness down there.  Bought a delicious loaf of the famous sour dough bread here and deliberately broke our Keto Diet and enjoyed it so much.  Yummmm‼️

Our family returns from their trip to India the day after Thanksgiving.  We will have the weekend together and then head back to Colorado on Tuesday the 29th.  Our time here is passing much too quickly and I will not be anxious to head home to the cold and high altitude one bit😩😤😡

I wish you all a good day.

Time to head for the haystack!  I'm really tired tonight.  Interview with the cleaning lady went well and I think it's going be a GO with her.  I'll be having her one day a month to do the heavy stuff that I can't do any more.  We'll see how that goes.  She's going to call us back with a price in a day or two.  She probably won't start until after Christmas.  And she wondered how I'd feel about Saturday Mornings.  I'm OK with that!

JENNY, you are sure having a ball!  If your breathing is so much better, you might want to think about moving out of the mountains and closer to that part of your family!

LLOYD, I don't think, I could have eaten what you guys were served that day!  Thank goodness it's not a regular thing in Canada, according to AMY!

I have an overnight guest to cuddle up with tonight.  Frankie worked until 8:30 tonight and she has to be back in at 7 tomorrow so Cooper is spending the night with me!  I love it when he stays over!

I have to start getting my stuff ready for the trip to Christy's on Wednesday.  I already sent the fresh pumpkin with her so she can put it in her fridge to thaw in time to make pies for dinner on Thursday!  There's going to be a crowd of her husband's family there.  It'll be nice to meet them all.  I've met his daughters and some of the others at the wedding but we didn't really get acquainted! 

I really tired tonight so I'm going to go take Cooper for a quick walk in the yard and then off to the haystack.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

well It Is time to folow nancy to bed. I have the humidder filled and running by our bed. that is a very good smell. also A little pricey to run. but worth it I think even tho Nancy complaines about the $$ it cost to run, It taks one gallon of distilled water every night. can not use watter out of the fosits , it has too much lime and such, it stops up the filer. and that is a job to clean out. but with that smell I do not have to wear my mask, i have sleep apena and quit breathing for up to two minutes with out the humidefyer. I havent wore my mask for severyl weeks now , with the humidefyer. good noght and sweet dreams.

Lloyd

Shirley

Jenny, I've been lucky enough to spend time right where you are and enjoyed all that you talked about. My souvenirs from the Warf were such fun for me, opening the oysters to see what kind of pearls I was taking home to my girls/friends, plus some for myself. I even bought little jewelry wire baskets to hold the pearls on a chain. Many years ago & good memories. Cas had week long meetings that wives got to attend, Shirley was rebel enough to tell some of the wives I knew best, "I'm getting a cab to go to...." the Warf one city, the Mexican Market in San Antonio, etc.. I still have the very long tailed kite that also came from the Warf, brittle but have not thrown away. Andy would fly it for our oldest gr-son so was 40+ years ago! You will hate going back to dragging this oxygen around all the time, difficult decisions you & Bob must make.

Lloyd, every now & then I get a roast that I'm sure must be horse meat, but don't think it really is.... you are right that "it can happen".  Matter of fact, I bought some ribs not long ago that were different from any I had seen before (they were already cooked). Did not look like from any animal we usually consider eating.  :P

I gotta get this table cleared off & ready for Thanksgiving work. My son-in-law always sharpens all my knives when his wife & I cook, he is really good at it, but needs this table to work on. It will be a challenge dragging this oxygen hose around & around while baking the turkeys & all that goes with it, I must have been super short on oxygen to even volunteer that job "one more time".  :-[ 

Good night, Jane & Lloyd, you snuck in while I was on the phone telling my kids good night! 2 of them call every night but the youngest just comes over one evening a week to visit for 2-3 hours. He comes to do a job now & then but always comes if I call with a need for him. Enjoy the family time & I do envy that you found a helper!

Bedtime & I'm shutting down right now!  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone if I don't get back for a couple days!  Sweet dreams and God Bless.  Stay warm and safe! Love y'all. Shirley/Tisie  :pumpkinpie:  :yum:
