Larry--This was Linda and Ed's main and only house.  Linda most often works long hours.  She has responsibilities in many places around the world and often has to have tele-conference calls in many time zones.

Joan, it sounds like Linda has a tremendous amount of responsibility with your position in her company. 

I had to come back in and post a second time today as just watched this video and it is very heart warming and nice.  I hope it touches you as it did me when I finished watching it my eyes were not dry.  https://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=n1Pbu2ZANGk

Amy, my climate is much like yours and I have wintered geraniums for many years.  Long ago I tried hanging them upside down in a grocery sack and that worked for some, but I had to replant them in the Spring.  What I've done recently is bring them inside to be with my house plants.  They don't always look too good during the winter, but come Spring, blossoms appear along with more foliage.  I have one I'm going to bring in Saturday.  Actually, I put all of my houseplants outside about a month ago.  We had a nice rain earlier this week so now I can bring them inside.

Now that I can talk, I don't know what to say.  :2funny: We are celebrating our Centenarians today. We have eight of them..seven ladies and one man. I personally know three of the ladies. Two of the ladies use rollators as I do, and one uses an electric cart, altho she can walk a bit. She is also an artist and makes greeting cards to sell. Very inspiring ladies.

Joan/Bis, I called downstairs for help, but my girl hasn't arrived yet, but all is well."It" even affected my lap top. Miracles never cease. You my girl are another one, it makes me SO happy to see your green message pop up. Tell Tom I feel he is a very special son.....you and are both blessed Bis.

Good morning

Another early morning here.......dog wanted out and now I am up to stay. No hanging laundry out unless the weather clears up some.

Larry, loved the video and I sent it on to my sewing friends to look at. Amazing young man he is!

Lloyd, all the hard work of doing pears down will taste even better come winter.

Jane, how is your SIL?

Mary Ann, thank you, I just may try that. I have done the one with putting them in a bag but no luck. I have 4 pots of them and they have lots of blooms on them yet!

Better get a move on.....

Enjoy your day everyone..

Good morning Everyfriend!  The good news is that Craig is home.  The bad news is that they did not do the procedure due to a problem in his blood.  I think I might have misled you to the wrong problem.  This was a heart problem and because his blood was not the right consistency they put him on blood thinners and sent him home.  This is what my daughter was hoping they would not do because she's seen what the blood thinners have done to some of her clients at the Agency on Aging..  I haven't had a chance to talk to them yet because they were both tired and talked out with their two kids and Craig's twin sister.  I'll see Cathy today or tomorrow as usual and I'll get the full story.  For now, all's well!

I slept better last night than I hzve in z long time!  Today is going to be a good one.  Todzy znd tomorrow are supposed to be warmer than this past week so I'll take that and enjoy it. 

We're waiting for the boinger for the doggies pills znd we hzve about 10 minutes to go.  I wish you all a good day, full of whaterver you wish for.  Take it and make it yours. 

Amy, thanks for asking about Craig.  The rest of you...thanks for the prayers.

Good Morning everyone. it is 70º partly cloudy and going for 82º today sun is is supposed to show it's face but a 90% chance of thunder storms. Now isn't that a forecast? well  I see two of my best lady friends smiling faces. I wish you all a great day. well we are going to lay off the canning until next week to finish up.
we have I think 24 quarts of pairs canned and think same # of pints of pairbutter. have about one bushel of them left to work up. boy Picking was the easy part. but will taste good this winter and good Christmas presents. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone, looks like a warm day again with possible showers.

HAL  did you get a ticket for speeding or get in an accident? Did I miss a post about it? I will check that link. My grandson never has the time to really check out what is the problem with this thing. Heck even HP did nothing the 2 times it went back to them. Thank you.

JOAN  makes me happy to know your family visits you often. My older son was here yesterday and brought me more apples that he and mu DIL picked a few hours earlier and a container of applesauce he made. Second son will be here tomorrow and of course I chat with my daughter every day.  I am happy they visit as often as they do.

LARRY  I checked the control panel and checked what is installed, especially by date and found nothing there I did not recognize or install myself. My grandson did check for updates when he was here a few weeks ago. Wonderful youtube. Such a caring youngster is rare. Thanks.

LLOYD  Nancy and you will enoy all the canning come winter.

AMY  one thing I like about where I am living, very little dust and dust bunnies.

JANE  Hope the blood thinner helps Craig. Warmer here, too, but with rain.

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, I got my recycle bin out and brought the paper in and coffee is made and the dog has been out to take care of business.  I glanced at the paper and it has the same old junk.  Local politician is in trouble over money, prostitues and corruption, they are fussing at Trump for cutting money off to instance companies, neglected to tell folks it wasn't authorized to begin with.


Gloria a week ago Sunday my wife had greeting and messed around here at the house until it was time she was suppose to be there and then she panicked and was "kinda" fussing at me to hurry up and I did and busted a stop sign, just three or four blocks from our house and the local Constable was in the area and gave me a ticket.  So I have to sign up for a defensive driving course or pay the fine, fine is 265.00 DDC is 117.00.  Politicians have discovered a great new source of revenue.  But it is my fault, I busted the stop sign, cant really blame anyone but myself.  Like I told the Constable, well we were running late and now I am going to be really late.  And we were.

Guess I will watch some college football today and that will be about it.

Janie I am not sure what your Daughter was saying about thinners.  They can cause internal bleeding, but nor aware of other problems.  I think it happens in folks with valve replacement.  At any rate I hope they fix the problem.  Also the new thinners are very expensive.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Hi Everyone.  It is an overcast morning with just a very light mist falling.  We will get to the mid-80's today.  I plan on attending a meeting this morning and then spending the rest of the day quietly with some college football games on the TV.  I did watch Clemson lose their football game to Syracuse last night.

Yesterday evening I spoke to one of my first cousins that just this week moved to Oregon to go into an assisted living facility where she could be about 5 minutes from where her daughter lives.  She told me that her two sisters lived in the Napa Valley and both had evacuate their homes due to the fires but she didn't know whether they had lost their homes or not.  She still has her home that is not in the fire area and both of the sisters had gone to stay at her home.  I had not realized that they lived in the Napa Valley.  I also have a first cousin that lives in Oakland, who is the brother of these three sisters, and am going to call him as it has been a long time since I talked to him and perhaps he will have a current status of things out there.  I have quite a few first cousins on my mother's side of the family but we are not close and seldom communicate.  A number of years ago I put together a family reunion that was held in Denver and all of the first cousins and a number of their children and grandchildren attended.  That was a one and done event as no one else was interested in taking on the responsibility.  We had a great time and think everyone enjoyed it.  I hadn't seen most of my first cousins in 50 years or more at that time. 

I had to take a quick break from posting and go to the store for some chili beans.  Pat is making chili to freeze and donate for the bazaar along with a lemon pound cake. She was going to do the Aldi's shopping this morning but that would have done her in for the day and it was a quick trip for me and after my meeting will stop and do the Aldi's shopping on the way home.  I know where things are located and it only takes a few minutes.

Lloyd, glad your tire was fixable.  I think I will soon need new tires for my Hyundai as notice the tread is wearing down. A couple of days ago on the Weather Channel they showed that some severe weather could hit your area over the weekend.  I hope it is just rain and no damaging winds.  It sounds like you and Nancy have done enough canning for one week. 

Mary Ann, Pat has a couple of house plants that she has had out on the patio most of the summer.  We used to have plenty of room for them in our little sun porch but that has become her quilting annex and her downstairs office area.  I am sure we will find a place for them. 

June, that doesn't sounds like a problem with your computer and glad to see you are now able to post.  I have seen that same message on my iPad from time to time although I don't use the Safari browser.  There may have been a short problem with the Internet connection to this website. The fact that your laptop was also impacted by the problem is further indication it is not a computer problem with your computers.

Jane, hopefully Craig's blood will soon be thin enough that the needed surgery can be performed. 

Gloria, the problem I was having with my desktop seems to have been solved when I did the removal of some programs and ran the various diagnostic programs.  You might try downloading a program called Advanced System Care and letting it scan your computer.  There is a free version that I have used and now for several years have used the paid version. It is a product of a company called IOBits and I use several of their programs.  If it doesn't help you can always just uninstall it.  You are lucky to get freshly picked apples as they are much better than those that have been held in cold storage.

Hal, how many hours is the defensive driving course?  That is an incentive as the fine would cost quite a bit more.

Good Saturday.

It started out as a dreary, misty day, but it looks like the sun is trying to show it's face.  It is supposed to be up in the 70's today and reach the 80's again tomorrow.  Summer just doesn't want to go away, yet.  Next week will be somewhat cooler.

I was missing yesterday, as it was kind of a lost day.  Didn't get much done,. and about 2 p.m. started to read on my Kindle, and fell asleep and didn't wake up until almost 5:30. I just couldn't believe I had napped that long.  And, I did sleep good last night. 

Larry, you had asked me how many checks I had ordered for the postage to be so much.  I had only checked 1 box.   Luckily, I checked out the rest of the page and saw where I could use the standard rate and it was free shipping.  I don't know why some places have to make what used to be a simple process, more confusing.  I think the next time, I will just check with the bank, as I am sure they could provide the same service as they always did.

Jane, do hope your son-in-law will be able to have the procedure he needs, once they get the blood problem stabilized.  Always something to make you worry. 

Amy, as usual, you were here early.  Hope your day clears up.

I am hoping to get to a local farm market today to use a gift certificate that my son gave me for Mother's Day.  I think he forgets when he gives me things like that,  that I really still need someway to get to the places.  I love getting gift certificates, but also need a way to get to use them.  This particular farm market will close up for the winter the end of October, so I am hoping that they still have some late produce.  I am sure there will be some nice fall flower arrangements that I could get.  Lots of pumpkins, also. 

Joan,  so happy that you are feeling well enough to send your greetings each morning.  It is just so nice to see your messages.  I am so glad that you are close to your family now and they can visit more often.  I know your enjoyed the warm doughnuts. 

Hope every friend will have a wonderful Saturday.

Good afternoon, it is cool and raining all day. I had to put the heat on yesterday.

I am getting around a little better, but very slowly, and still have to use the rollator. that still upset Taffy. It was a week yesterday, that I fell on the porch. My whole left side is black and blue, my hip is still very sore, but I am lucky it did not break.

Jane, I am sorry Craig could not have his procedure, as that is such a let down, when you get yourself all prepared. My husband and I had bad results with Coumadin I now take Plavix. Two weeks ago I did have a nose bleed that last 6 hours.

Gloria, how nice your son brought you apples. I still like Macs

Lloyd,  That was a lot of canning. I wish I was on your Christmas list.

Joy, I also liked it when you just walked into the bank and handed in your check order.

Okay, Jane.  I came in to check radar to see if the cats will want to be out or stay in tonight.... they seem to enjoy a night out but have lately seemed to be just as happy to stay inside.  I've had to close Tommy in the other end of the house because he objects to Tiger planting her body on my pillow (that I don't use) and while she will sleep sound except when I move, it irritates him that she took over old LaurenKat's place so he keeps pestering her.  They are 7 years old now so maybe ready to become house cats.  Callie claims the garage and will come in to eat with them and go back to the garage door when it's too hot, cold or rainy.  I have no idea how old she is but think she had a rough life before moving in here.  You have no idea (yes, bet you do) how bad I feel when going off leaving Callie standing in the driveway.  It is not an option to take her, can't be trusted to use the litterbox and would be afraid of the moving.  I have one neighbor that feeds her but they are gone a lot so it is a worry. 

My thoughts for tonight & I am also weary so will turn out the lights now.  Had to reset clocks all over the house because the power went out just long enough to stop them.  Had quite a bit of thunder & lightning but not much rain.

It is late, but I will still leave a post. 

It was a busy day....getting all the laundry caught up and ready for packing tomorrow.  We are flying to Boston to visit the family on Tuesday.  It was rather a last minute decision. 

Today I made potato soup and boy did it hit the spot. 

JANE, I do hope Craig can get his blood in order so they can continue with the surgery.  Maybe, he won’t have to have the surgery if the blood is thinner...that would be even better. 

I hope the thunder storms will not keep you awake, LLOYD.

SHIRLEY, you are right, power outages are a pain when you have to reset all the clocks.

JOAN, I guess Linda was a welcomed visitor bringing donuts for all.  I am sure sorry they had so much water damage in their new home. 

The situation continues to be concerning in N. California.  Dave’s old neighborhood is on alert to be ready to evacuate.  The winds have died down a bit so maybe it will be saved. 

Our family friends have found a home to rent, so hope that will allow them to start to rebuild their new life.  I did read that FEMA is getting set up so they all will soon be able to get more help.  I am still just in shock of how bad the situation is.....then of course the continued concerns for the folks in Vegas and the flooding and devistation from all the hurricanes. 

I wish you all a good night of rest.  I am having a hard time staying awake.

Pleasant dreams to EVERYFRIEND.

Jenny
