JUNE,  I did say that I'm going to "LIVE".  What better way to spend the rest of my life? 

That NUN you mentioned certainly had the right attitude.  If we can't do anything else, we can pray!

I'm going to wish you all Good Night before I forget.  I'm going to go watch some TV and I suspect part of it will be through my eyelids.  When that happens, I get up and take the doggies out and go to bed.

Forgot to mention that today was a gorgeous day!  The temps got up into the low 80s and it's still 72.  The sun was shining all day and it was a day to cherish!  I had the windows open all day for the fresh air.

G'Morning all. Thank you Amy for that web site, it's a lovely time of the year to see the magnificent display of colours, it has been so mild here this year that our show around here will be a little later this year, then I shall start to wonder what kind of winter is waiting or us down the road !, from what our forecasters say, it seems the colder air will start to move in from this weekend !, my 'other half' tells me my thermal socks and thicker jumpers are all ready !  :thumbup: but please, no snow !  :)

                                                                               Cheerio.  Roley.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I had a very restless night.  Just couldn't seem to sleep more than an hour or so at a time.  Also had cramps in one foot and ankle bad enough to make me get up and walk them off.  I got out the Gator Ade and kept it by the bed.  That helped.  and now we are in for a rainy day.  I will NOT let it get me down!  This is MY day and I'm grabbing it!

I'm trying to get ready for my visitors.  Cindy's friend is bringing over a contraption that babies sleep in and I suppose I'll try putting it up.  I wonder what ever became of cribs?

Coffee's done so I'm going to go get some and I'll be back later to see what you are up to today.  Take the day!

Good morning everyone...

We had a great day touring yesterday (tiring too) Saw lots of golds, rusts bright yellow. Not many reds but when we did they were vibrant red. All these colours were mixed in with the greens of the pines . When we came home and let the dogs out of the van golden girl fell and hubby thought he could pick her up ,well if he didn't fall! I helped him up and golden girl got up on her own. She amazes us at times, acting like a pup one time and then others we wonder if she will get through the day.

Jane, you were so quiet in the backseat one hardly knew you were there!! Hope you enjoyed the commentary as I love the Park and could help the ooooohss and ahhhss  when the colours were so pretty.


Roley, you are welcome. Here were bring out the fleece bedding , flanenel shits, lj's (long johns ) and wool socks.Yes, not too soon.


Well, I slept in again so I had better move it...feel rather lazy and it is humid from the rain so movement will be slow :)

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning,  Jane and all who follow.

It looks like it is sprinkling rain outside my window.  However  the temperature is still in the low 70's .   Supposed to get a lot cooler the next few days.

Since I have not been up too long,  nothing much is going on yet.

Not sure what I will get into today.  I do know that the nurse will be here between 3 and 4.  I am hoping that she will tell me that next week will be the last of these visits.  I don't have anymore issues to talk about.  I seem to be just about back to how I was before.   Just have to try to keep up with the exercises and stay well.

Have a good day.

Good morning,  Amy.  You sneaked in on me.   Sounds like you had a nice day yesterday.  It looks like it is going to be kind of a rainy day here today.  Not much change in our foliage yet.

Hi Everyone. Still dark here in North Augusta, South Carolina but it looks like we have been very lucky so far from the Hurricane. It started raining about 2:30 am and then some wind and at 4:30 we lost power for about 20 minutes and then another very brief outage a little later. The Weather Channel has a reporter over in Augusta, Georgia, and he said we have had about 2 1/2 inches of rain in the area and we will get some more rain and moderate winds this morning but nothing severe is expected and then will clear off this afternoon. I am seeing some of the pictures that are showing the terrible destruction that some of the communities in Florida experienced. I am sure a lot more destruction will be visible as the sun comes up and the reporters can get around more.

Pat did go to her craft group at Church yesterday and then we stopped at Zaxby's for our lunch. The Wednesday evening activities were cancelled at the Church so Scott just came out and had one of the meatloaf dinners Pat had put together that we taken out of the freezer. I had gotten a new utility cart like we have in the kitchen that is so handy to use in the garage to get groceries from the car into the house and he put it together for us. I am taking a pass on going to coffee this morning as the old gentleman I pick up on Thursday isn't sure on his feet and a big gust of wind could blow him over plus it will still be raining. I just plan on a nice quiet day here at home.

Carol, I sure hope you are feeling better today. 

Jane, glad you had short lines and happy customers yesterday.  Good news on your blood tests and check up. Sorry to read that you had a rough night and had those foot and ankle cramps.   

June, glad that Gary was able to stay and have lunch with you.  I hope you had a good night last night. 

Roley, they are saying that we can now expect to have some nicer and more normal weather for the Fall season than we have had yet.  Do you generally get much snow during the winter months where you live? 
 
Amy, that wasn't a good ending to your nice day or touring.  I sure hope your husband didn't have any bad effects from his fall. 

I have left comments for a number of you in Norm's Bait and Tackle so skipped further comments today in this discussion.

Good morning everyone, missed getting here yesterday again. My CNA will be here at 10 this morning, just about time for coffee and breakfast.

MARY ANN  after a few nights of not sleeping I slept a good 8 hours last night so feel awake this morning. Wish I could nap but never happens. I do lay on the couch every afternoon more to rest my back than anything else. It has been a few years since I could get into any high vehicle. Have trouble even getting into the back seat in a car. Front seat is much easier.

LARRY  had a good back massage the last 2 days and it felt good, even helps get around better for at least half the day. Have not been outside this week and it has been hot. Unusual for this time of year.

JOY  glad you are feeling so much better. No hope for my back, nothing has helped so far.

JENNY  a back massage always feels great but the effects do not last long.

AMY  WOW I would love to go to the park with you. The maples here are the ones I love to see with their bright colors, the ones in the back of the parking lot are from bright red to a maroon color, In the mornings when the sun is shining on them I look out my window and wish I had a camera. We have a lot of oaks some turn a rust/bronze color and very few have red/gold color. Remember what Joan called the LJ's? Geemagotchees.  Wonder how she came up with that word.

Have a good day.

Checking in to see how EVERYFRIEND is doing.  We have been watching The Weather Channel non stop trying to see all we can of the damage in Panama City / Beach area.  So far, all of the relatives have checked in and are all safe, how ever the damage to property is extent.  We have not heard from one cousin and numerous friends, but we are hoping and praying they too are safe. 

All property west of our beach area seems to have come through the storm with minimal damage, but our beach area and East to Panama City and beyond is not!  Some areas like Mexico Beach look like a war zone.....very sad.  One cousin owns a business downtown PC and her shop was on the national news showing the awful destruction. A tree fell on her home, so it is inhabitable and they have not had any contact with her today. 

I wish you all a good day....if you are in the path of the remnants of Michael, I hope you can stay safe.

Janie, I was have a bit of trouble last night too, and ended up sipping some gator ade and it worked…..was able to relax and sleep.

Amy, I just can't picture you feeling lazy. You are the "doiing-est" person I know.

Joy, I have a day off too..I did take two empty boxes downstairs..nice clean ones from my Amazon order. Nothing goes to waste here, thank goodness.I do my daily exercises and massage my legs and feet  every morning. And I know it has helped me overcome some of the lack of blood flow do to clogged leg arteries.

Larry, I am so glad you are not being adversely affected by that latest hurricane…it sure tore up some of the gulf beach area. My night turned out resftul and peaceful after I slurped up some more Gator ade. Thank you for your kind thoughtfulness.

Gloria, how I wish they could give you a shot in the back.or cut a nerve or something so you would have relief from pain. I see a commercial where this guy has some kind of surgery near his spine and it shows him standing with only a band aid where they cut something.Wish I knew what it was all about.

I plan to go down for lunch, and have no other plans for the day. There is choir practice but it is too involved for me….I love to sing, but not to work at it, so I will go with the Red Hatters tomorrow….they do easy stuff. And I still sing a hymn every morning here in my apt., after I do the prayer readings.

I love my life here at Rowntree Gardens. So much sincere love from so many. My
Gary and Dori sure blessed me by bringing me to this place. It is "home'.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Not sure if I really posted but didn't take time to go back very far to check, every time I start something the phone rings & it is a long conversation totally different from what was on my mind, so don't get back to "square one".  I guess I posted over in Photos & answered some e-mails telling about everything going on.  Another good friend's son died this week, same age as my youngest son, so can imagine how torn up the rest of the family is.  Last I heard of my friend was about a year ago, that she was in a care facility with Alzheimer's. 

Had to call to tell our other friend that lost her son a month or so ago, they were both living in NY when their boys were young, so especially close, but the friend I called doesn't do computers so doesn't read the online obits in the paper where we grew up.  Another of our friends sent e-mail that she couldn't be at the reunion because she was just diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer, had her first chemo & after a week they would do a scan to see if that chemo was going to help.  After finding so many of my class mates in really bad health, kind of hard to understand why I am so lucky, I sure never did anything to deserve it.  I thank God every day, grateful for every breath, I know it could end any time, and I do pray for the strength to be as graceous as my friend when that time comes.

The highlight of the reunion was the "kid" that was supposed to die more than 2 years ago came to the reunion with his "bride to be" pushing his wheel chair.  She seems as nice and sweet as he has been telling me every time he calls, so I wish them happiness, for both.  She was an aide where he lives, left that job but kept coming back to visit him.  She is much younger and I pray they both find good days that over shadow the bad ones.  He has never uttered one word of bitterness about the mis-diagnosis that pushed him into that wheel chair.... Had he received the physical therapy needed from the start, I don't think his muscles would be is this shape.... my opinion, but I'm amazed how accepting he is of his fate.  We have all heard to horror stories of people taking advantage of "our age".... so I am asking for prayers for this couple, that they are honest about their feelings for each other and neither of them making this decision for the wrong reasons.  They honestly have something to offer each other that could make his last days happier and hers easier for years to come.

Hope to get back to a normal day soon, need to drain the fresh water tank & refill for the next trip, need to take care of that pool & do some trimming in the yard, need to: need to: need to..... Got winter clothes on but must go find the rest of the "sweats" that I wear around the house all winter.  No fall, so just "bang!" get out the coats & boots!  Seems we always had our first really cold night when the kids wanted to go "Trick or Treat"..... right?  Even back when I was young it would often be our first ice or snow.  I LOVE IT...
even if the old bones aren't as happy with cold weather.

Today was a day to do things I didn't know I was going to do.  I've been despairing over the fact that my living room and hall carpet really need to be cleaned and last weekend I decided why they felft damp.  All summer, I think I only ran the A/C a few times so all that moisture and humidity was in the house.  Then, those two little animals that live here dragged every ounce of dirt that could cling to them inside.  And with the coming of Fall, it hasn't really been cold enough to run the heat....more dampness. 

So this morning I called my favorite carpet cleaning couple to see if they have time to do the living room and hall and after some conversation to remind herself what was needed, she said that they could come on Tuesday Morning if that would suit.  It SUITS!  So I already started to move everything I can into the dining room.  I've taken everything out of the curio cabinet and cleaned the glass shelves.  Tomorrow, I'll do the rest of the glass and start cleaning all the doodads.  But I'll wait and let them help me move the cabinet.  There's not much left in the living room and what is there, will be moved, cleaned behind and moved back in place when Cindy and Kevin leave. 

And it will be all clean and nice when the Tex/Okies come!

I'm hoping tonight will be a better sleeping night than last night.  I didn't take a nap this afternoon and I'm already sleepy. 

I hope you are all having a good day and that your night will be both restful and peaceful.  Greet tomorrow with a smile.  It'll start your day off right!

Good morning everyone...

We are being eased into colder temps ,this morning it is 36° all too soon we will looking at snow. This is the earliest Alberta has had snow and apparently lots of it!

Need to go get my shingle shot early this morning, we are still waiting to see if hubby can have it or not. This one is not a live vaccine so maybe he will be able. I  know he doesn't want the shingles back!! He also has a flu and pneumonia shot to get next time he is at the Dr.s


I finally finished the last of the came quilts,now I can move on to something else. My van needs to be washed so if the day warms up it may get done.


Shirley, that is so sad ,young men passing away so early.I don't want to out live our children but as you know one doesn't get that choice. Seeing your "kid" friend there would certainly make your heart smile....


I had better go get ready.

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good Morning from a chilly Central PA.  The temp dropped into the "wear a jacket to work" zone overnight.  It shoule have been a "wear a jacket to take the dogs out" too but at least it was a warning.

I'm still moving small pieces of furniture out of the LR.  I can't wait to see it clean.  After Cindy and Kevin are gone on Tuesday, I'll start replacing the small stuff in the curio cabinet and leave the furniture for the Dynamo to clean and replace on Wednesday when she comes.  We're going to sparkle on Thursday when the family arrives.

AMY, I'm thinking of getting a flue shot for the first time in about 20 years.  My Doc gave me some pretty good reasons why it's a good idea.  She also gave me good reasons for the shingles shot and added that the new one is not as bad as the first ones were.  I'm also thinking about that, too.  When I tell Cathy, she's going to add her pressure.  If any of you have good to say about them, please do.  I've avoided the flu shots ever since they made me very ill back in the mid 90s.

Now I better get on my horse and get ready for work.  Wish me smiles and short lines.  I wish you all your best day in a month of Sundays!

Hi Everyone. It is an absolutely beautiful morning here in North Augusta with clear skies and 53 degrees.  We are suppose to get up to only 74 degrees this afternoon, the first real day of fall weather.  Nothing particular on the schedule for today.  I took care of a lot of little chores yesterday and was really tired last evening and a bit draggy this morning so will probably lay back down for awhile after I finish here in the office and I get Pat's breakfast fixed and read or listen to my audio book.  One of my coffee drinking friends gave me a book on Wednesday.  Scott came out yesterday afternoon to take a shower before he went to work.  His electric was off all day.  It must have been on when he got off around midnight as if it weren't he planned to come out here to spend the night but didn't need to do so. 

Gloria, good to see you had a good 8 hours of sleep Wednesday night.  I didn't sleep well that night due to the Hurricane warnings and losing electric for a little while but I sure slept hard last night and would have slept in longer but didn't want to miss the trash collection. Our normal trash pickup is Thursday's but the city postponed it until today due to the expected rain and winds.  They came by at around 8:30 so glad I didn't dilly-dally this morning in getting it out.  Have you ever tried a TENS unit on your back.  Pat has one coming in the mail next week.  I know Stacey had one that we gave away and it helped her. 

Jenny, safety of the folks is the paramount concern during these horrific storms.  I hope all of your relatives and friends in Panama City/Beach area were wise and evacuated.  However, doubt they have a good homecoming at least in the Beach area.  So sorry about your friends lose of business and home. 

June, good to read that the Gator Ade is helping you and you were able to relax and sleep.  I hope you are able to participate with your Red Hatters today. 

Shirley, it is very sad when our children precede us in death but life must go on.  It sounds like this isn't a good week for some of your friends.  You are certainly getting cold weather quickly. 

Jane, we have been shocked not to have to deal with high humidity in our house this summer and didn't need to use the dehumidifier at all.  However, we have run the AC all the time.  Glad you are going to be able to get your carpets cleaned.  I have never had a problem with flu shots other than a sore arm for a few days.  I am just waiting the required time to have my second flue and shingles shots and then will have the pneumonia shot as well.  Hope you had short lines today.   

Amy, it sounds like winter type weather is on its way to you as that is a very cool morning.  I hope you are still sometime away from the snow. 

deAngel, happy to see you will be attending your home makers group today and enjoying a luncheon.

Jane, I have had flu shots for umpty-seven years and have had no problems.  The only thing the nurse asks is if I have an allergy to eggs.  I get my shots at Walgreen's in the pharmacy department.

Jane, I agree with Mary Ann.  The only problem I have ever had with any shots is a deep-seated aversion to any kind of needles :'(.  I could never be an illicit drug user!  I just take a deep breath and close my eyes and it's over :). That aversion carries over to sewing needles also!

I'm also a firm believer of arnica gel which is an old time homopathic medicine.  It helps with the redness and soreness at the injection site and works wonders with bruises also.

MaryTX, after the nurse gives me the shot, she places a bandaid on the place (not the red 'W' you see in ads) and I forget about it for a few days (sleeve covers the place).  I don't recall ever having any type of reaction - but there's always a first time.  I haven't had my shot yet this year because I keep forgetting about it and Tom has to be available.

I've been getting shots of some type for years, since childhood, and they haven't bothered me.  I remember my first vaccination while in grade school was on my leg because my mother did not want me to have the scar showing the rest of my life.  For years I could find the scar on my leg but cannot now.  In 1976 when I went to Guatemala, I had to get another vaccination and I had that on my arm and I can't find that now although there is a darker spot on that arm which could be it.  They may have improved the vaccine or too many years have passed (48).  Mentally, I could not be a drug user.

Jane ,here is so reading  for you.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/flu/expert-answers/fluzone/faq-20058032

Because Kyle has a compromised immune system due to meds he is getting this one. plus the pneumonia shot too...he can't afford to get sick as it would hit him like a brick wall!!!

I got the first shot of the new shingle shot and will go back in 2 moths or so to get the second one. This one is 90% better than the old vaccine.

More reading for you.. :smitten:

I hope this helps but if not talk to your Dr. and they will explain  it better ..

I am not getting on the computer for hours these days but I do read the postings.
Things got so far behind with the summer being so hot. Was also hard to get people to work on what needs doing. Still looking for one for the painting outdoors.
But now I think things will have to hold off until Spring. Big change on the weather. Got down to 31 last night and will be same all week. Warming up only to 40s.
Did get a call today and someone will replace the ceiling fan in dining room and maybe will clean gutters on porch. Furnace all taken care of. Has not stopped running since.
Just read in paper today that a warehouse is being built. Ready in Nov. They will need 3500 people to work in 3 shifts handling packages . Amazon must have hired United Parcel and the other carrier as delivery carriers. It will put a end to some of the stores at the big mall as  they can't get people to work there and even 2 Walmart have closed down this past month and other than Macy's at the mall the others have left. Such A Bergners, Sears. Big sport store. lots of small ones.
This is a University town and twin cities. only about 195000 in both together.. The new one is going to start out at $16 a hour and can work either 4 or 8 hours on choice of 3 shifts. Great for students also. 2 new bus lines have started coming in from outlining small towns.  Our 2 big Hospital take so many workers. Online shopping is now taking over Read where Amazon shipping was in the Trillions this year. The choice now for the big warehouse is between Chicago and Indianapolis. It will be needing thousands of workers. Should be no excuse for people to be out of work soon. Living on welfare. How the places are changing. It is getting harder now for college grads getting jobs to stay around the area.

Our teachers in all the schools went on strike yesterday in the local schools. I suppose that their Salaries will have to improve when the Minimum wage starts going up to $15 a hour. A teacher only making about 12% a year more. Back in the late 60s I remember people making min. wage got about $1.50 a hour.
Looks like rain and so got to head out to buy a new ceiling fan.

Getting a new computer end of month that will be W10 and so want to have more time to be on it. Spend more time on S and F.

I was looking forward to this day....all kinds of good stuff to attend. My night was interrupted at 2;30 a.m. by a tech who wanted to draw blood, so that kept me awake for a while after he left, then I woke at 6a.m. when the nurse arrived with my early meds, and a patch of nitro glycerine. Then my house keeper arrived at 7:30. so I ended up all tired out before I even got my day started. So I have canceled all the fun stuff to appease the body, but must go down for my flu shot later on.

Weather here is beautiful. I am reading my eyes out but enjoying the Christian fiction, and thankful to do what I can do. The body rules. Sometimes it lets me dance, other times it says "act your age", so I don't fight it.

And I love being here with all of you, enjoying your life styles, praying for those who need it, and thanking God for it all. Hugs and Love my dear ones. June

I'm here right now but I'm going to apologize in advance.  There's a busy time coming up and I might not find much computer time.  This is what the next week or so is bringing.

1.  My living room and hall carpet will be cleaned on Tuesday.  I've already begun to take things out of the living room and stuff them in the dining room.  After the cleaning, it will all have to be put back and I'm trying to wash and dust and clean all the knick knacks before they go back in the curio cabinet.  They will also clean the sofa which is the only thing I'm leaving in the living room.

2.  I'm thinking of taking the window curtains down and washing them.  Might as well have it all clean at once.

3.  Monday and Wednesday Mornings I work and Sunday Morning I go to church.

4. Monday at noon my cleaning Dynamo comes and whatever hasn't been moved back into the living room by then, she will help me put back.  And then sparkle up the rest of the house.

5.  My neighbor is going to cut back my 5 Rose of Sharon bushes on Tuesday sometime and I help carry and bag the cuttings.

6.  I have a grocery list as long as my arm and hopefully I'll have time on Tuesday to get that done.

7.  The beds have to be changed on Thursday because...

8.  The Texans and Okies arrive on Thursday late evening! 

EMMA'S COMING...SO IS HER MOMMY AND HER GRAMMY! 

Do you think I'll get it all done?  I wonder?  I didn't plan on the shrubbery cutting or the carpet cleaning before they came but I'm glad both are getting done.

So now I bid you all goodnight because just writing all that down made me tired!  Sleep well and greet tomorrow with a smile!

Good morning everyone...

My goodness Jane your itinerary for the next week makes me tired just reading it. All worth the effort though to enjoy your company.....all 4 generations will be under one roof!!!


Not sure what is on the agenda other than laundry. When I let the dogs out the patio stones looked wet so not sure if laundry will be hung out. I also need to clean out the eave troughs but I think that will wait till my arm is not as sore.


Jeanne P , it is great seeing you here..I don't want to have another hot summer either. My goodness there was no let up on heat. We ran our a/c night and day to get some relief.  I switched to W10 and like others thought it was going to be difficult to get use to but it isn't .You will be fine with it .


Better go get ready to meet the day...we are looking after the dog and cat next door today.

My neighbours Mom (92) could use some prayers please. They finally found out her problem and will be operated on Mon for bowel cancer..this sweet lady has had so much on her plate lately .


Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning.

Amy, I am still around.  I thought I posted something yesterday, but maybe I didn't.   I usually read the morning messages, but sometimes just decide to come back later and then get busy, and forget.   

However, I am doing good and just trying to get back to my normal schedule.  This past week were the last visits from the OT and the PT,  so life will be a little less busy.  Not sure just how much longer the nurse will be coming, but I doubt it will be much longer.  I also have a doctor's appt. this week, so then, hopefully, I will be able to plan some other things to do.  I know I want to get back to some more de-cluttering that I started a while back.  Still have a lot to get organized.

It really got chilly overnight and I had to break down and turn on the heat for a little bit.  Not looking forward to the long, cold wintery days that will soon be here. 

Have a good day.

Good Morning Everyfriend and a special Good Morning to you, AMY and to you too, Joy.  You beat me here!

I got up to rain also but it's just a misty rain so it didn't keep the doggies in.  However, the temp is only 46º.  I think we have FALL!

AMY, I can wedge prayers in almost anywhere, anytime so the will be on the way for your neighbor's sweet MOM. 

Now I better get on with my schedule.  I want to be dressed and ready to do some of the "away from home" things on my schedule as soon as the doggies are fed. 

I did sleep better last night and I had the alarm set for 7 a.m. just in case.  We almost never sleep to the alarm.  We did today with only one wakeup during the night and that one was necessary.  It never disturbs the doggies so I got right back to sleep. 

Now I'm off to begin my day.  I wonder how big a dent I can make in my schedule.  I actually forgot one thing I have to do.  But that one only involves a phone call.  The worst part of it is that I have to remember to do it before they close. 

Enjoy your day.  I hope you're smiling because I am!

I just have to say that living through 2 hurricanes within 1 month has really tested my patience!  Not quite as much rain with Matthew as we had with Florence but more wind.  Even though I was raised in KS where the wind blows all the time (right, Shirley?) I really hate wind!  Scares the bejeebers out of me when I see the big trees weaving back and forth wildly.  Big trees are down all over the area, but I was lucky because I had only small to medium size limbs come down.  Also, the roof leakage didn't get any worse so that is good.  Still working through the insurance process and trying to coordinate work schedules with the roofing contractor so it is keeping me occupied.  I truly am not complaining because we had NOTHING like what happened in Florida.  I feel so bad for everyone there.

Glad you and Pat are all right, Larry.

Jenny, does Bob still have any family in Panama City?  If he does, I am hoping they are all right.  The pictures of Mexico Beach just being completely destroyed were so disturbing.

Yesterday was a beautiful day!  Cool and low humidity and a beautiful blue sky.  It did get a little chilly last night and I had to pile on an extra blanket.  But, I don't mind that.  I love this kind of weather.

I hope every one here is well or, at least feeling better and staying happily busy.

Good morning everyone, well the humidity and heat has finally left here. Had rain from Michael all day yesterday and a cold front came through overnight and now it is 44°. HOPEFULLY we won't have anymore of that high humidity. Some areas of this little state had 3 inches of rain Thursday into yesterday. When it stopped the wind picked up but saw no branches down in this area. Not many leaves fell but the parking lot is full of dry pine needles.

JUNE  I have had shots in my back but they do not help. I have been told I am too old for surgery, not that I want it. From what I understand that laser treatment in the back is expensive and not many insurances will cover it. One Vet here looked into it and even the veteran hospital will not cover it.

SHIRLEY  like you I am happy with the 44° here this morning.

JANE  I had the best sleep in a week and do not feel groggy this morning.

AMY  like you I do not want to outlive my children.

PHYLLIS  glad I do not  own a house anymore so do not have all the trouble with getting insurance claims in.

Just started raining again but at least it in not hot. I rather have winter than another hot and humid summer that extended into fall this year.
Have a good day.

It is 40 degrees here this morning.  Yesterday I brought in my plants from the deck and they will stay in for the winter.  Most are amaryllis bulbs which will be ignored until the first of the year.

Phyllis, it is good to see things are as good as possible with you following all of the hurricanes you've been through.  I've watched much TV and I'm amazed at the destruction along the Florida panhandle.  When Jim and I would travel to Florida, we would go through some of those cities, although not at the oceanside.
