Amy,  I am so sorry for your loss.  That has to be one of the hardest things we do - even when we know it's necessary.

JaneS,   sorry the insulation installation had to be postponed but ever so happy the bare wires were discovered before anything awful happened.
Good that you can "take out your frustration" with the candy and fruit cake.  Hope you had an easy day at work.

Lloyd,  you're really "covering ground" getting to AZ!  I can picture you rolling along I-40 across western Oklahoma and the TX panhandle.  Could probably drive that route in my sleep!
Have you run into snow along the way?

Have been out with both sons most of the day....business appointment and lunch. 

 :hugs:  to Everyfriend Everywhere.

Well there's a new twist to the insulation story.  Last Spring I had two overhanging trees trimmed and when the guy was leaving, he told me, "If those squirrels wanto get on your roof now, they'll need parachutes".  He was wrong!  Mickie has been barking up that tree for a couple days now and I decided that the squirrel was up there even if I didn't see it.  This afternoon she was barking and just as I stepped out the door the squirrel FLEW from that tree onto my roof!  It has to be 6 feet from the tree to the roof.  And he didn't have a parachute or wings or a motor of any kind and he wasn't short.  He could have made it further.

So I called the guy that did the trees in the Spring and he stopped by and now we have problem #3!  Both trees are beyond saving and will have to go.  He gave me a price and I think I must have winced.  And then I told him to deal with the one that helped the squirrel get in and the part of the other one that was in jeopary of falling and taking my storage shed with it.  Instead, he knocked 1/3 off the whole price and said he'd cut the wood and stack it so I can sell it!  I think I'll keep this guy around.

And that's the third bad news I've had.  I hope it's the LAST! Because I can't deal with any more.  I know it's only money and not someone's health in jeopary.  But I'm at my wit's end.  I'm sorry to unload on you all so just ignore me.  I'll muddle through somehow.  Maybe all this rain will turn to coins and I can drag them to the bank.  I'm sure as heck not going to win the lottery because I've never bought a ticket and I don't think the Publisher's Clearing House has ever heard of me!  Oh Well!  That's life!

Good evening.

Amy, I am so sorry to read about your losing your beloved Golden.  It is always so sad when we lose our pets.  But, she is not suffering anymore. 

Jane, I am sorry you have had some bad news concerning having the insulation installed, But,  much better to find it out now to avoid a fire starting.  And, then to top it all off,  the news that you will be losing a couple trees.  As the saying goes,  "it never rains, but it pours"

Just to let you all know, my busy day yesterday went along very smoothly.  Didn't have any problems along the way.  Not hopefully will have some good results from all the tests.   Had a nice lunch with my DIL and a good doctor's visit.

I am getting ready to fix me a dish of ice cream and see what movie is on the Hallmark Channel.

Have a good rest of the evening.

Joy

So sorry about the flying squirrel & having to get trees cut down, Jane.  What kind of trees (hard or soft wood). When we had all the damage from a storm in Leawood, we let anyone come cut wood up willing to haul it off.  Should have insisted they take some of each kind but didn't think fast enough. The free takers only wanted hard wood (oaks, mainly) so we paid people $250. to haul the rest of the branches to the street so city haulers could pick up.  That was the month we moved into that house & happened on our anniversary.  Looked like a war zone.  Wood is really expensive around here so hope you get a good price.

Lloyd, I've never stayed at a truck stop overnight... do they have electric hook ups or do you have to run your generator for the furnace or AC?  Hope Nancy's leg is better.  When Cas was alive we used to stop every couple hours to walk enough for the circulation... for his legs & mine.  I do get out about half way when going to MO, to stretch, get food & give the cats a chance to use the litter box... they won't use it while rolling...  If you make it to Wichita I'll meet you where ever you stop, I'm located on the northwest part of town.  Right now our street is so torn up I have trouble getting out of my driveway & would not dare try to move the RV.  Hope they plan to coat the whole street because they sure are making a mess of patching.  Good luck with your travels.... one of these time when I go to MO I will give you & Nancy a call to see if you want to meet at the McDonald's in Warrensburg, that's the only place I know where I can pull off without a problem, to meet my sister & brother-in-law ( without going to their house).  Don't like those little narrow streets driving the elephant! 

Good night, sweet dreams and God Bless..... (Red Skelton?)  Shirley   Hugs, Amy.........

Feeling really sad for you, AMY. I know how hard it is to make a decision that is for the best, but oh so heart breaking.  HUGS.

JANE, they say bad things happen in threes, so I hope you are done with these terrible situations that have landed in your lap!  There is no need to ask why a sweet lady like you has to have this happen....but one sure does wonder.  I am so sorry.

LLOYD, sorry that you did not get to see the twins today.  I do hope things will work out for you to see them tomorrow.  It is worrisome about the swelling in Nancys leg.  I hope she can get that swelling down.  Hope you are sawing logs right now! 

LARRY, I was so happy with my window washing job until today and now I see they already have a bit of a film on them and I see streaks! 
Yes, I realize I am a rare breed that does not care that much for chocolate!  I am not much of a sweet eater in general and chocolate is way down on my list. 

We have Oliver the Doodle here with us again.  Brian and Cathy are in Santa Fe NM at Cathy’s brothers wedding.  We might have Lola Dog here tomorrow also as it is Granddaughter Kate’s 9th Birthday and she is having a birthday party at home.  It is a cupcake decorating party and Lola might be better off to be away during this time. 

We just got a sever weather warning on our cells.....nothing going on yet but best I get this sent before it starts!

SHIRLEY, continued thoughts and prayers for Andy. 

Pleasant dreams to all.

good evening everyone. Shirley your motor home is just what you need. you can handle it fine, but it is a pup along side ours I think .ours is 39 feet long
and just a smidgen under 8 feet wide just so leagale in width. it has a 300 horse
cat diesel engine. gets right down the road fine and up the hills as well. it has just two ax-easel rear is dull wheels. it has 80 mph on the speedometer and it will do it in a couple heart beats. I did try it, but I mostly where the roads are suitable 65-70, it has cruse control and it works fine. brakes work fine also.
It also has a exhaust Jake brake works good and is not noisy like to many of the big trucks , do not here it at all but can feel what it is doing. the down side of it is it only gets 7,3 miles per galleon. but it is on air ride suspicion and rides like a dream for the most part. I am going back to bed now and try for some ZZZE'S. sweet dreams one and all and thanks for the well wishes for Nancy and I.

Good Morning all.  I'm just sitting here waiting for the tree guy.  He said he'd be here around 8:30 so I don't want to get involved in anything I can't stop when he gets here

The boinger just went off for the doggies breakfast so I better go feed them or they'll be in here nagging me.  I might not be back much today.  Lots to do.  Enjoy your day.

Good morning everyone...

Laundry day here and I am not sure what else. I know the snow blower needs to be brought over to the garage and the reflectors put in the ground by the walkway. Hubby isn't having such a good day his RA is really acting up. I hope we get a call from the specialist soon!!


Thank you Shirley, June, Callie, Jenny and Joy we all have been through this and many times and each time it doesn't get any easier.

My son sent me this and when I can, I will watch it..just not now.

Jane, that is it for you, no more, you have had more on your plate lately to deal with. Look on the bright side, when all done you will be snug as a bug in winter and a cool cucumber in summer. 

Lloyd, safe travels for you and Nancy..


Enjoy your day everyone..

Hi Everyone. After a very rainy day yesterday we have a bright and sunny morning and suppose to stay sunny all day long but only get into the mid-60's.  I am feeling much better today than yesterday.  Yesterday I was very short of breath and very tired and was having angina.  Pat discovered that the humidity in the house was above 50% and felt that might be contributing to the way I was feeling so we turned on the air conditioning and it went back down. I plan on staying home today although Scott has today off and suggested we go out to lunch, so we may go for a late main meal this afternoon. Other than that I just plan on watching some football and taking it easy. I have fixed Pat's breakfast and the kitchen and morning chores are done. 

Carol, thanks for the offer but I think I will pass on those dishes that "curl your toes".  :) 

Amy, remember the good times with Golden Girl rather than the sad day yesterday.  I bet Babe dog is really missing Golden Girl. Sorry that your husband is suffering today with the RA. 

Jane, sorry to read you still have a problem with squirrels.  Years ago I put a bird feeder out on a wire and one day I saw the squirrel making way on the wire (I think it was upside down) until he got to the feeder. They are also able to jump long distances.  It sounds like you have a good tree man who is trying to be very fair with you.  I also hope you don't get any more bad news for a very long time. 

Lloyd, glad to see you are making good progress on your trip and sorry you haven't been able to see those twins.  Glad you and Nancy are having a good time. 

Shirley, it is important to get out of a car every couple of hours especially as we get older. 

Jenny, I think Lloyd and I will have to worry about you not caring for sweets.  :)  I hope the severe weather skipped you yesterday.

Amy, I looked at computer radar and saw snow in your area.  We haven't had any yet, but the day will be here and I hope it's later rather than sooner.

I started to watch the video you posted but I couldn't finish it because I knew what was coming and I don't have the stomach to watch it.  I'm a softie when it comes to pets.  Tears come too easy.

Good morning all. I was having computer problems yesterday, so my girl that fixes computers came up, worked on it and got nothing....just a big black screen. So called Gary and he planned to come over today and take the computer back to the people that he had do work beforel. So I was expecting a weekend sans computer. After I woke up this morning and did all the breakfast/prayers/daily readings etc. I sat me down in front of the computer and decided to check all the plug in connections...wiggled them all, turned on the computer.....and here I am.

I said, "Thank you God".
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Mary Ann, I haven't watched it either. In time, maybe but I am like you on the pets. I will keep it though as my son has two rescue Danes and I know one day in the future I can send it back to him. When I was talking with him last night he said Cole was snuggled beside him on the couch and Skye was perched  on top of the footstool trying to get close to him.  You can just imagine how that looked!  Later on in the evening he phoned and while we were talking said that Cole was snoring when if fact it was Skye!!  Cole would have to lower his head to counter surf he is that tall!

June, Amen...….glad you are here :)

Neighbours have gone to see his Mom and I brought Rex over for a visit. He is now laying at my feet quite content. :)

Good afternoon, sun shinning now, but rain all morning

Amy I also am so sorry for your loss,as I sa9id before pets are our family. If I do not feel good in  the middle of the night my Taffy is right beside me.

Oh! Jane so sorry to hear about that can of worms that was open.  As they say trouble comes in threes. At lest it all can be fixed, and those bare wires right away, so glad that was discovered before anything serious happen.

June, smart girl, you got the computer working. Hope you feel better

The fruit cake is baked and cooling.  Later I'll pack it for aging and then I don't have to think about that until it's time to wrap it for giving.

The guys are still here cutting down my trees and my guardian angel is watching over me. I think I have things figured out.  I'm not sure how Christmas will work out but I'm sure God does.

Amy, I asked Cathy about watching the video and she said I should send it and she'd try to watch it.  I don't know if I told you the dog in that video is the image of the one they just lost.

I'm really tired but I can't doze off until the guys clear out of my yard and I'm not sure when that will be.  Cathy said she's going to circulate a memo at work that I have wood for sale because she knows at least 5 people who have wood stoves and fireplaces.  The will help the situation. 

We used to sing a song at camp that was based on the "now I lay me down to sleep" prayer and I found myself singing it this afternoon.

All night, all day, angels watchin' over me my Lord.
All night, all day, angels watchin' over me.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Angels watchin' over me my Lord.
Pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Angels watchin' over me.

If I die before I wake,
Angels watchin' over me, my Lord.
Pray the Lord my soul to take
Angels watchin' over me.

If I live another day,
Angels watchin' over me my Lord.
Pray the Lord to guide my way
Angels watchin' over me.

Then you do the opening chorus again.

I think the angels are definitely in my corner this week.  And watchin' over me!

AMY, my speakers have chosen not to speak today so I can't hear it but it will be badly sung in my kitchen for the next couple of days.  Kumbaya is one of my all time favorite camp songs.

I wonder how Andy's doing, too!  Maybe Shirley will be in later.

Fruit cake is packed away.  Now all I have is the sawdust smell.  That's kind of nice too.

First of all, you are right, Lloyd, your RV is 10 feet longer than mine but my speedometer says 100 on it.  No idea how many miles per gallon, a lot depends on the wind drag.... sometimes I make it to Sedalia with a quarter of tank to spare & some times I chicken out & add before I get there, it holds 55 gallons.... but my gas is cheaper than your diesel so think it balances out for cost. When I put the slide out there is lots of room, but not too bad when I don't want to put jacks down & slide out. King size bed stays a king size bed & plenty room for the cats & me. Not ready to give it up yet. 

Thanks for asking about Andy, .... he was released from the hospital about 7:00-8:00 last night, think they needed the bed, one nurse mentioned lots of patients waiting to move from one area to the other.  He called me about 9:30 & sounded exhausted, he had company that brought food & of course his 2 kids & their families were there to make him comfy.  I've been there & know the kindest thing is to be left alone to sleep.  They had only that day taken the drainage tube out from his chest & lungs, still has to go get IV antibiotic every day for not sure how long... left the "picc" line in but still a pain to have to load into the car & drive to the hospital outlet... & someone has to drive the first month.  They are being cautious about this infection (thank goodness).  I feel bad for him because everyone has said, "take the pain pills, why suffer?".... He is like me & could have done better without, as long as my head is clear I can handle things but they take the edge off my stubborn brain & I can't fight as good.  "They say" he's only taking half what most take, but that half would be enough to make me fuzzy & the pain more intense.  But I wasn't running the show so ........  Hope he gets some strength back, they discovered he is anemic, a shock, since he gives blood as often as they will take, & they test each time. 

It just started raining, been sunny all day.  I've been day dreaming about a drive through MO next week but see weather guessers are talking about a couple nights below freezing so may need to take the RV out to be winterized & have the pool guy over to shut it down & install a new cover.  I can use the RV anyway, just have to not let water go down the drain & "toss it out" instead, been doing it 5 winters already & no problem in the woodsy campgrounds where I go. 

Just have to tell you about my problem.... with a "cat" smell.  Tom walked past the other evening, purring & rubbing against everything... & lifted his tail & marked HIS spot!  I yelled at him & his eyes got frantic & he took off running down the hall to hide.  I quickly cleaned the spot & he came back looking nervous... I talked nice to him & let him go out. Every day since I thought I could smell that odor, have that "miracle" spray that's supposed to eliminate completely but it has an odor I don't care for, too.  I've scrubbed, polished & done everything I could think of, over & over, & finally called my sister because she's had cats all her life.  She sympathized with me & just said, "no cure, it's just awful". 

Last night it was stronger & I decided I had gone over cabinets, floors, everything else where that smell could be coming from BUT, what if it was something hidden that was rotten.  One time an onion had gone AWOL in my conversion van & took a thorough cleaning out before I found it.  Sure enough, I found a half of an onion in a ZipLoc bag hiding behind & between the crock pot & convection oven.... been there about a week & guess the zip was locked tight.  The smell is gone today!!!   I often use half an onion & save the rest if I'm going to need more in a day or so, but never put it in the frig for fear it'll taint the milk or something.  Boy, howdy, lesson learned! I called my sister to tell her I can't blame the cat..... I should have taken the crock pot to it's shelf in the basement but plan to use it next week & those steps are SO tough to climb with something heavy, nobody but me to see it's on the cabinet~~ Made a lot of work for myself to save a few steps....

Don't watch the video unless you are ready for a good cry.  Think my self control is off tonight, tears are flowing over but in one sense, the nerves are more relaxed.... I never did panic when my kids got hurt, but after, when alone in a corner, I could cry.  We aren't alone in our misery.

Nobody been here since me.  Don't want to scare you from watching that video, it is so well done, and so like most of us feel about our pet family, I kind of think each will find a sense of peace watching.  I think your son had a good idea sending that to you, Amy.... sometimes tears are healing & mine were peaceful tears. Thanks to him.

I watched the video, AMY.  IT IS nicely done and a loving one that is a real tear jerker.  Thank you for sharing it.

We had dinner out with Dr.Dave and Family for Kate’s 9th Birthday at a Cheesecake Factory, the Birthday Girls choice.  I had a pasta dish, and there is enough left for a couple more meals.

We are to gain that hour back that we lost in the spring overnight, but right now I will need more than one hour to make me feel caught up.

JANE, I do hope the tree cutting went well today.  I sure have thought a lot about you and all the issues you have been facing.  HUGSz❣️

Continued thoughts and prayers for Andy.  It seems awfully early for him to be sent home.  Just hope he gets enough rest. 

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND.

Jenny

Just a quick stop to say "Good Morning Everyfriend".  I have to go get myself ready for church while we wait for the doggie pill boinger this morning.  I'll be back later for comments and visiting.

SHIRLEY, I'm so glad to hear that Andy continues to improve.  Still praying!

Good morning everyone..

No snow this morning :) Rained off and on yesterday and made you glad it wasn't snow!


Managed to get the laundry done and the tape residue  from rugs being put down for GG. Thought  would get some baking done so maybe today is the day......later.


Shirley, Jenny, I will watch it when tears behave...I do have Kleenex in the house :) but I am a softie when it comes to animals and children.



Jenny, I too will need more than that hour , maybe we can sneak in some of Janie's zzz's.  Happy birthday to Kate!


Shirley, picc lines are a blessing. Kyle had one for his chemo and it saved him from being stuck every time we went for treatment. We bought Veterinarian's long gloves to put over the line when he had a shower. I made a elastic  wrap with Velcro to close it.

Lindancer..animals are such a comfort to us, no matter what they are.They seem to know when your not feeling good .

Gloria, hope you are feeling better today..all too soon you will look out your window and see a winter wonderland :)

Enjoy your day everyone.

Hi Everyone. It is another beautiful Sunday morning here in South Carolina with not a cloud in the sky.  I did remember to reset the clocks and my watch.  I am responsible for our devotional for our Sunday School class this morning and likely will lead us in singing a couple of the old hymns unless a choir member is there and is willing to do so.  Pat isn't up yet so don't know whether she will feel up to attending Church this morning or not.  If she goes we will likely stop somewhere on the way home to have our main meal and if she doesn't I will pick up something to bring home.  Then I expect to spend the rest of the day quietly.  I do want to try to contact my good friend via FaceTime later this afternoon. We try to talk about once a week. 

Yesterday Scott came over and we went to Wifesaver's for a delicious chicken dinner.  We even had a dessert apiece.  He and his mother had the banana pudding and I had a piece of lemon meringue pie and really enjoyed it.

Amy, baked beans always seem to make the house smell so good.  It is hard to think of great danes as snuggling up.  I hope Rex was some needed company for Babe yesterday.

June, have you been giggling the wires and plugs connected to your computer?  Seriously, glad the computer came back to life. 

Jane, do you make only one fruitcake?  Glad that job is over for you for another year and you can get back to the important things like making the candy!  Glad you are getting the trees removed before they fell and caused damage to your home.  I hope your wood sells quickly.

Shirley, glad to read that Andy has been released from the hospital.  You are right he needs to rest and visiting isn't resting when you are recovering from serious surgery.  I don't think people realize this until they have been the one trying to recover.  While having visitors is appreciated they need to make them short visits. Glad you discovered the problem with the "cat smell" and that it wasn't the cat. 

Jenny, we used to go to the Cheesecake Factory for special occasions and always enjoyed it.  However, it has been many years since we have visited one. 

Bubble, thanks for helping Amy share the picture of Golden Boy.  I see why he has that name. 

Time to leave for Sunday School.  Pat told me she doesn't plan to attend Church today so won't be making the extra trip out to get her, not that I mind doing that.
