It's good to hear from you Don.  I am sure your new surroundings will "grow' on you, you will make new friends and you will be involved in activities.

I just deleted my post!

I, too, reached out to Johann and this is the answer I received from her.

Thanks so much, Jenny!  We evacuated this PM to Summerville, SC, about 20 miles northwest of Charleston. We have a first floor room so if by chance they lose power, we won't have to cope wirh the stairs.

I also had contact with ANNE GRAHAM.  She is in the Columbia area and will stay in her home and ride out the storm.  Her children live close and she feels they will be safe. 

Thank you, GLORIA de for letting us know about Johann and Windell. 

So good to see your post, DON.  I am glad you are settled and and I than you for sharing your info with us. 

SHIRLEY, that mustard sure sounds yummy and will be great for the brats.  You know your guys will sure enjoy it.  The leaves are turning very nicely so I think your timing will be perfect this coming week. 

We went and got a Bob some custom orthotics made today...he will get them next week and we are sure hopefull that he will get some relief for his feet when he gets them. 

I think that covers the majority of what I said....

Oh CAROL...both of our phones went off at least twice telling of a storm.....it definitely said Highlands Ranch....but no stor: happened, as you well know. 

Pleasant dreams to all. 

Jenny

Good Morning Everyfriend!  The weather is still cooler here.  They're only projecting a high of 79 today and we are expected to have rain beginning around noon.  I'm so tired of rain by now that I'm ready to scream! 

DON, it's so good to see you posting!  We all miss you.  I hope you settle in soon and begin to share in the activities.  You never seemed like a loner to me so I'm betting you'll be active soon.  Getting used to a new place takes some time.  But how can they help but like you!

I have no special plans for today until I meet Kiran's bus.  I'm going to have to clean up my office and get space.  Kiran likes to play games on my computer.  Plus, we have a lot of talking to do and things to catch up on.   

I also have a chicken in the crock pot that I have to debone and get ready for the freezer.  When my daughter and granddaughters come in October, I need to make a big pot of potpie.  She always expects potpie or ham and green beans when she come here or I go there.  If I go there, she cooks either a chicken or a ham and has everything else ready for me. 

I guess I do have some things to do today.  I hope you all have a good one.  Take it and make it your own.  Fill it with love, happy time and whatever suits your fancy.

Good morning everyone, boy what a night here. Thunder storms and rain and downpouring rain, still pouring.

LARRY  they are warning people here to stay out of the ocean waters as the surf will be bad with undertow and bigger waves than normal. By Tuesday next week they are saying we should be getting the rain, too, don't think we need more as it has rained every day this week. Wish we could send it out west where it is badly needed.

DON  so good hearing from you. You will soon be used to your new home. With your outgoing personality it  should not take long for you to know everyone in the facility. Prayers continue for you.

JENNY  many times here the weather people tell us that a storm is coming and nothing happens.

JANE  like you I am so tired of all this rain. It is keeping me inside and I do like to get outside every day. I will go out in the snow if it isn't like a blizzard, I still love show.

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning everyone..

Cool this morning and foggy. Hope the fog lifts before we head to the vets. This will be for the update on Babes needles ,she is not going to be too happy about this.

Jane, I was talking with my son and he said that Hinton Alberta got 3 inches of snow , so it is on the way.

Gloria, good morning! At least one doesn't have to shovel rain. Listening to geese flying over at the moment.

Don, I am sure you will be an asset to your new home. You will find so many new things to get involved in.

Have a great day everyone and stay safe!

Hi Everyone.  The sun is out here this morning and no wind.  It is once again to get up above 90 degrees this afternoon.  The only thing on my schedule is to pick up my friend and go to coffee for an hour.  So it should be a pretty quiet and restful day.  We are still some time away from the winds and rain from the Hurricane.  I see this morning that it has weakened but it looks pretty certain we will be getting some winds and probably a lot of rain.  I will get my emergency lights and the emergency radio out so they will be available if needed.  The danger here is from trees being uprooted with the very wet ground and falling on the power lines.  I am sure that flooding throughout South Carolina is going to be a big problem and some places are still trying to recover from the last severe flooding that occurred here a couple of years ago. We are just in a wait and see position and know we are very fortunate.  I see that by tomorrow night we can expect the edge of the wind and rain to be in our area.   

Don, glad to read that you are now settled into your new permanent care facility and that you are making the most of it. I know it is a big adjustment but you have had to deal with a lot of those in your lifetime as we all have.  I have always felt you were a person with a very positive attitude and that helps in every situation.  I looked at the website for your new home and it looks like it is very nice.  I hope you will soon feel up to getting involved in some of the activities there. 

Jenny, thanks for sharing Johann's message with the additional information.  I had forgotten that Anne Graham lived in Columbia, SC.  I hope she will be fine. I hope the orthotics are helpful to Bob.  Our son is always on his feet for many hours a day at his work and was having a lot of trouble with his feet until he used the Dr. Scholl's machine and found the inserts that were right for his feet and that solved his feet problem.  Pat did the same thing but wasn't able to use the inserts so I guess it depends on the condition of a person's feet as to whether they will be helpful or not. 

Jane, it sounds like you will need to keep your umbrella handy for a few days more but I hope I am wrong.  I just heard we can expect 6 or more inches of rain in the Augusta area this weekend.  I hope you have a nice time with Kiran this afternoon.  Children sure bring joy into our lives.  I just read yesterday that in South Carolina there are 4,000 children under State care and what a sad situation. 

Gloria, I agree with you that it would be nice if we could share some of the excess rain with areas in the West that need them.  Hope you are able to get outside for a little while today.  We are to have a heat index in excess of 100 degrees this afternoon but I plan on being in where it is cool. 

Amy, I agree with Babe that getting shots is not a pleasant thing.

I agree with Babe also about the needles.  I avoid them whenever possible.  Mickie's skin condition is clearing up but still not gone.  She'll be getting another bath today.  I really think she has become resigned to them.  She doesn't resist nearly as much as she used to. Also found a place to get the salmon oil in a bottle for on their food.  So maybe no more skin stuff.

Someone in the pet store said that she rubs coconut oil on her dog's skin for the "dry flakies".  I have some of that so maybe I'll try it.  It can't hurt and it sure won't smell bad.  I could do it at night and it would only get on the blanket she sleeps on and could be washed off in the morning.

Guess I better get dressed and get SOMETHING started.  I'm beginning to feel like a slug-a-bed in my jammies.  Later friends!

Radioman - I don't have your last name.  Wishing you the very best in your new residence and peace to you for all the changes in life. 

Thanks for the news on Johann - I know their house is near enough to water.  I am sure the children and other relatives are watching over them...

Jenny:  It sounds like you are dog-sitting?  We do that once in a while - it sure changes the daily routine.  I didn't see the warning.  Best to Bob and his search for easy foot relief. 

It is nice and cool for the moment but still too hot for the next few days.  We are not fans of hot weather.

I'm here, have read your dear posts, but I am tired.This arm injury is healing but it really took some starch out of me. All I want to do is stay home, read and sleep. I am going to get dressed and go down for lunch, then hopefully make it over for Choir practice......we'll see how it goes. The body still rules. We are having a high of 84 today with sunshine, how I would love some of Janies rain. Hope to see you later. June

Not sure how much time I have but found a few minutes because lawn mow guy called to say his mower broke down so would call if he can make it today.... Granddaughter called to say she is running late but still going to stop by to show her year old little girl as they head to the airport for trip back to Seattle.  She was in town on business but could bring the little one if she could find sitters while she worked.  I'm not asked to take care of the little ones since they are way too heavy for me to haul around my house really is not kid proof anymore.  I need to run to the store but put it off all day to be available for "visitors". #2 son was going to bring his big, lighted canopy over Wed night, to put in the RV storage so I don't fill up the spot  ;)....

I'm checking daily (several times a day) for weather changes for a trip to CO.  So far in the 80s for daytime & that is hot to me, but in the 40s at night (perfect sleeping weather), so sorting & packing way too many clothes, but I can still leave some here if they don't all fit in.  Wish I could do like one son, take a few clean shirts & pants & not worry about it. The other son takes a new outfit for every day & most days, 2 changes (hot & cold). Takes a full day driving each way so only 5 days of camping. 

Jenny, every time I think I have the dates nailed down something changes, but hope we get there before the snow flies. ...Although I've been there during an early snow & it is beautiful with the gold aspen & cottonwood loaded with glistening snow.  The boys are good about taking my cameras for a hike while I take a nap.  When ever we get there it will be fun, but a damper on the trip with the youngest having to put his Great Dane to sleep this week.  They extended his time for at least 6 months but reached the point he was suffering and no hope of getting better so did the humane thing, doesn't make it any easier, though.

Don, as you can tell, we all have faith in you that before Santa comes, you will be a favorite in your new quarters.  I know you will make it happier with your presence. Check in more often, please, you've opened a new place for us to visit.

June, for sure every thing that goes wrong takes the starch out of us.... great service you have there and I'm sure they do appreciate your attitude. 

Gr-daughter & great grand have "been & gone".  What a sweet little chunk... weighs 20? pounds at a year, full of energy & smiles all the time, even meeting a stranger (me).  Looks like it could storm so better check radar.  I have the slide out open so I can clean & sort. I forget what is in & not & since I load different type everything for going to CO or to MO, I gotta get organized.   :crazy2:  2 trips to MO in Oct. When I go to MO I am packing food just for me, eat out when in town but love to munch in front of TV (or DVDs) in the campground.  The cats enjoy life when we are stopped, this RV has windows they can see out of all the way around.  Some don't.  They love the activity in a Walmart parking lot, but I'd rather have power hook ups, so I catch up on sleep in a parking lot.

Time to take cats to the river, busy day, for sure.  Shirley

Shirley (Tisie. :) I am so fortunate that my son brought me me to Rowntree Gardens, formerly Quaker Gardens, but they changed the name so folks would know you do NOT have to be a Quaker to live here...we are all welcome and so loved. I have to go down daily for a bandage change on my arm and the nurse nearly had me in tears with her loving words. As I have written before, my son teaches Bible study twice a month here, and has been doing it for 11 years,and he wanted me more nearby his home and suggested I move here. Thanks be to God. You too have very loving and caring children, as do many of us here. And what a loving and caring group we are at Srs. and Friends too. It is amazing.

Hello Everyfriend!  I'm off to Dreamland soon but wanted to check in and see what everyone's been up to today.  I had a busy day...more so than I expected.  Even made a decent supper.  It was a new recipe called Stovetop Italian Supper.  Turned out pretty good but there sure is a lot of it.  I think I'll freeze some in meal sized portions and eat some for the next day or so.

And now I bid you all Good night.  I wish you a peaceful night's rest and a happy tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

We enjoyed a delightful drive to the mountains today.  Sadly, most all of the trees that we got to see were pretty well gone.  The drought this year has caused many trees to turn and drop their leaves really early this year.  We did not go much further than Idaho Springs before we turned back and went to Central City and Black Hawk our local gambling towns. 

We were to go to Vail this weekend with Dr. Dave and Family, but the condo group their place is in are working on the decking in the front of their unit and it was not going to have access.  They found out today they should be able to get in so they are still going but we had already changed our plans. 

I actually came home with a bit more money than I went with. I hit a nice jackpot at the first place I go to......that was a nice surprise.  But as the day went on my money dwindled away, just as the casinos have designed the machines to do.  It was a fun day though and we did enjoy getting out of town and seeing our beautiful mountains. 

How exciting SHIRLEY for you to meet your little great-great grand and see your great-granddaughter.  I am so sorry to read about the son having to have his Great Dane put down.  It is such a hard decision to make but one that is important.  I think you are going to get some wonderful viewing of the trees changing.  The pictures the6 are showing on TV are spectacular in some of the areas, yours being one of the, at Mt. Princeton.  I am very happy for you.  It is to cool down some next week. So the daytime temperatures should be nice and it will be good sleeping temps at night.  I am so happy for you three getting to come and enjoy the beauty of acolorad9 that you love so much.

JUNE, happy you are feeling a bit stronger and can go down and eat and start to attend some functions again. 

CAROL, our doggie sitting ended last Saturday.... Can you believe we are breaking all of these temperature records?  I think we are almost done and it is going to cool off some. 

Pleasant dreams to all.

Jenny

And like a bad penny, I keep turning up!  I have an early shift at WM this morning and I have to keep to a pretty tight schedule.  So this is my "check-in" until after work this morning. 

SHIRLEY, I envy you your Colorado week with the "boys".  I would love that kind of vacation!

I hope you all have a great day filled with the love of family and friends.  Grab it and make it yours.

Good morning everyone. At last the rain has stopped for now and the walks are dry. Have been watching the news about Florence and already flooded streets. Heard they already had to rescue at least one person who was too stupid to evacuate.

AMY  I no longer have to shovel snow so now I can just enjoy the beauty of it even if I can no longer  walk in it.

LARRY  with all the rain we have been having here it wouldn't take too  much wind to uproot trees with the ground softened. We are expected to get some of the rain here on Tuesday. Could not go out yesterday because it rained all day, my CNA finally used an umbrella walking from her car to this building. Hope I can get out for a little while later.

JANE  my hair had gotten very dry si hakf hour before washing it I use some coconyt oil and rub it on my scalp and through my hair, it does help.

JUNE  would love to send you the rain we have been having and more to come. Been thinking we should start building several Arks.

SHIRLEY  wish I was going into the mountains with you. Would love to see every thing there.

JENNY  glad you brought home a few more pennies than what you started with. I would have been more interested in the views.

JANE  hope you get the registers you like today.

Hi Everyone.  The sun is shining here this morning.  Our local forecast is now that we will probably get 1-2 inches of rain and winds around 35 mph.  We probably will not have rain start until late tonight or tomorrow with the highest chance of Sunday.  Our danger is from floods as the water floods the rivers and heads this way.  I had a medical appointment this morning to have my pacemaker checked but they called yesterday and said the tech, who lives in Columbia, is not coming over here today so I will reschedule it.  That is no hurry as it was just routine.  I plan on staying home today and taking it easy and think most of the chores I needed to do this morning have been accomplished.

Jane, Babe may realize she feels better after those baths.  It sounds like our dogs may small like coconuts! 

June, hope you got to feeling like getting out yesterday for your lunch and the Choir practice. 

Shirley, what a nice treat to get to see your little great granddaughter. Those little ones do have a lot of energy and seem to always be moving.  I hope you can soon make your trip to the mountains and know you are looking forward to it.  Sorry your son lost his dog but one doesn't want to let them suffer.  My son's little dog is probably on his last few months and he knows it but doesn't think he is suffering. 

Jenny, I see the casino's were good to you? Too bad you weren't able to so to Vail with your family this weekend. 

Gloria, I just now heard that the police have had to deal with a looter in Myrtle Beach.  People calling for rescue because they had refused to heed the warning is deplorable as they put the first responders lives in dangers with all the down power lines.  It is the uprooting of trees falling on power lines that is my concern.  However, I bought a couple more small flashlights and a few batteries yesterday at Walmart.

A bit warmer here in Stanton today,89 for a high. I am dressed cooly in a loose light dress. Went down to practice songs with our Red Hat singers...a sparse crowd. I think many folks are not feeling top-notch, like me. I have to go down each day for a bandage change on my injured arm. Healing seems to take longer on our older parts.

Unless I fall asleep after lunch, I plan to godown at 2 p.m. for something titled Pearl of Wisdom and at 6:30 this evenng, they will be showing Sound of Music, part 1. Of course it is very likely I will be prefering my book and naps instead, but we do have choices.

Gloria, I believe all of California would thank you for rain you could send. My housekeeper cleaned the window screens today as the dust and pollen keeps gathering on them.We have so many huge pine trees here, and they do what trees will do during different seasons of the year.

Larry the Choir practice was canseld yesterday due to a typo. I will happen next week, but I did enjoy lunching with friends.

Jenny, I too am glad to be feeling more like getting out. The brain can get lazy without a certain amount of social life. and it is time for me to wind this up and get ready to go down for llunchl. Hope to see you all later. June/color]

Jane:  Thank you for Don's last name - Reid.   I have delayed memory issues.  It seems to be happening too often.   :-\    One of our  grandsons is named Reid. 

June:  YOu are an inspiration!  So uplifting to read your notes.

Lots on our plate right now.  A son is coming for a week of medical tests and staying with us.  He did this two months ago. 

Otherwise, I made vegetarian soup today and will freeze some.  It is tasting alright - I wasn't too sure it would be tasty but the vegetable broth I tweaked with some spices and it seems to be eatable. 

Shirley:  I wish you a wonderful stay in the hills.  We have our windows open every night now and it cools down with the attic fan pulling in the cooler air.

Good evening, been a long busy day. H ad homemakers at 9 then had doctor appointment  a 12:30. I am very tired to night.

Have to stat taking antibiotics as I have congestion in my lungs, i have a dry cough and more and more atrial fib. I have been up most of the night for the last two days, I think I have slept all pf 4 hours,

Jenny awhile back you spoke of General Hosp. I have watched it since day one,for over 50 years. I think they are doing a great story about alzheimer's I think Sonny and Maxs are so good (he was on Barney Miller, the one who is playing the father)

June,, you are so lucky to have found such a lovely caring place.

Jane, hope you had and easy day

Amy, I see you're talking about snow already

Mary Ann, had the lady come and cut my hair to day, she lives in the park works  works in a beauty parlor on weekends She only charges $15

Gloria,guess we will see Florence Tuesday

Larry, hope you do not have any flooding near you. Seems I remember going over a river to gt into Augusta, maybe I am wrong it was so may years ago when we drove to West zpoint Ga. and Ala.  Cyriels family all worked in  the cotton mills

Gloria de, I wish I could get my hair cut by the woman who cuts yours.  I had the same stylist for over 30 years and really followed her from beginner to head stylist.  She retired last year and I wanted to get someone less expensive, but the one I chose to replace her did not work on the day I would have it done so I picked another, who was less expensive - but not by much.  I get my hair cut every five weeks so it isn't too bad.  Tuesday next week is my next appointment.

I'm sorry you must take an antibiotic.  I just finished one this morning and I hope I don't have to take any more.  They're no problem, just an added pill to what I already take.

Between ships, golf and the hurricane, I managed to watch my usual programs and also had something to eat so I'm set for the night.  Kendrick was under the table on the deck for a long time but when I went out a while ago, he was ready to come in and has stayed in ever since.

I'm going to go to bed early tonight.  I'm so tired I can't think straight.  I'm not just all in but my shoe strings, I think my shoestrings are in too. 

I hope everyone gets up tomorrow feeling tip top an ready to go!  I hope that includes me.  I don't seem to be able to keep my motor running this week.  Boy! this post is loaded with metaphors!  It must be time for me to get some sleep.  I don't have anything I HAVE to do tomorrow so maybe it'll be a better day.  I wish you all the best...a restful sleep, a happy awakening and a good tomorrow.  And may God bless us...every one!

Janie, like you, my shoe laces are in knots.... can't see straight.  Don't know when I've been at it this hard, all directions.

Mary Ann, I saw Kendrick's photo & can't believe how much he looks like my Tom.  I'm surprised Kendrick hasn't tried to jump off the deck.... these cats don't take a running jump, they spring straight up.  My sons cats don't make any effort to get out.

I'm going to bed early, going to give the cats their "midnight snack" early.

Shirley, a couple of years ago, Kendrick was left on the deck overnight.  I have an elevated deck, so for him to get a head start, then jump over the railing would be quite a feat for him - or any cat.  The next morning when Tom turned on his bedroom light (his bedroom is in the lower level), Kendrick did go through the rail and jumped down to let Tom know he wanted to come in.  I'm not saying he couldn't or wouldn't, but so far he has shown no inclination to get down.  I'm more afraid he would try to jump to the next-door deck when/if the neighbor cat would be out.  I don't think he could get enough leverage to jump because that deck is higher than mine.

Good morning Everyfriend!  I'm up!  I'm reserving judgement on "attem".  I've had the doggies out and gave them their pill and while we waited for the boinger, I made the dog food so that job is done. 

I still haven't decided what I'm going to do today.  Maybe I'll just be a lazy old lady all day.  Maybe something will come to mind.  We'll see!

SHIRLEY, I hope your "get up and go" came back today.  If it doesn't, you won't be ready to travel.  I sure wish I could go with you.  Yesterday, I told a friend that there are so many things I still want to do and I can't.  I also told her I made a decision.  If I CAN'T do the things I want to do, I'm not going to do the things I don't WANT to do.  In other words.....I QUIT!  She graduated high school with me and she thought that sounded like a good idea. 

My yard really NEEDS a Fall cleanup and that's one of the CAN'Ts around here.  I wonder if I can find a cheap yard guy?  I guess I better start looking!  Enjoy your day, Everyfriend!

Hi Everyone.  We have a cloudy morning and rain headed our way this afternoon, evening and tomorrow but no significant amounts and winds up to 30 MPH with a some stronger gusts.  They are having a street fair in downtown Augusta today that started yesterday afternoon. 

On Thursday I did get my first of two flu shots and shingles shots.  I have to wait from two to 6 months for the second shots of each.  I will get my pneumonia shot a little later.  I didn't feel well yesterday but I did keep an appointment at Best Buy and got my iPhone battery replaced.  I also learned that I would be able to use the new iWatch by using the blue tooth function of my phone and the watch so that is back on the table.  After lunch yesterday Scott called me and said the radiator had blown on my Hyundai Accent so it went back to the garage but should be done this morning.  There is one more major repair to be done on it to replace the timing belt but asked him to wait until next month as the radiator replacement is rather expensive.  I did go to bed right after dinner last evening around 6:30 as my heart had been letting me know it was there all day and I was exhausted and in discomfort.   I did have a good nights sleep but still am feeling a bit down this morning so will skip my Saturday meeting and just plan on staying home today.  I will rest more and watch some football.  I hope to be feeling up to attending Church tomorrow. 

June, I am glad to see you are getting such good care of your arm.  I am interested in what the Pearl of Wisdom program was if you did attend yesterday afternoon.  Sorry your choir practice was cancelled but guess you can now just look forward to going next week.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch with friends. 

Carol, Pat made a big hamburger vegetable soup in the Instant Pot yesterday afternoon and it made a great meal last night with more good meals on the way.  Have you used the Kirkland brand organic chicken stock for making soup or in other cooking? It was sort of an accident that I got it as had chicken broth on the list but she was most happy with the outcome and it is tasty.   I bought several boxes of it at Costco and Pat really likes it better than any other similar product. 

deAngel, no wonder you were tired last night and sure hope you got a better night's sleep last night.  I usually find taking an antibiotic drags me down some while I am taking it.  I hope it doesn't impact you the same way since it sounds like you are already dragged down.  We do live on the Augusta river but it has a large dam several miles ago that is under the control of the Corps of Engineers and they try to prevent any flooding.  I think it has been many years since they have had flooding in the downtown area of Augusta and as far as I know North Augusta, which is just over the river bridge doesn't flood.  If the river flooded our new ballpark area might flood but haven't seen any concern about it. 

Jane, sorry to read you were so tired last night.  It is pretty bad when your shoe strings get tired!  :) I hope you are feeling more rested this morning.  I hope you allow yourself to "be a bit lazy" today--you deserve it as does Shirley and deAngel and probably others who post here.  I am betting you don't QUIT but we do have the right to make decisions on what we want to do. 

Shirley, I hate knots in my shoestrings.  Sorry you were also so tired last night and hope you got a good nights sleep.  You work too hard.   

I hope Amy and her husband are OK as she usually posts here early each day.

Good morning everyone, foggy this morning. Just saw on the news the surf is higher than normal and quite a few surfers and they could hardly be seen, crazy. The waves will get higher and rougher. wonder  how many will get hurt getting knocked off their  boards.

LARRY  always looters show up when disasters strike.

JUNE  we have many tall pine trees here so we get the pollen, too.

GLORIA de  we are to get the ends of Florence here, too on Tuesday. I really could use a week of nice dry weather.

MARY ANN  there is a hairdresser that comes here and charges $15. I had her cut my hair  twice and she only took 5 minutes to cut it and it looked horrible, it takes her  30 minutes for a perm. My DIL does a better job.

JANE  with all the dampness we have been having I would like to spend the day either in bed or on the couch.

Good afternoon everyone...

Have been busy and trying to get everything caught up  …..I don't think I am winning on that though. We are to have a planned power outage for Sun from 8 -4... I have food ready to just heat up when we put the generator on..

Babe had her needles , and then we went to the city the next day to the oncologist and got great news for hubby!! Love that!

Been looking after the neighbours pets while they go see him Mom..love that too!!

I seem to run out of steam fast, maybe it was too many days on the road and not getting proper sleep??

Have laundry on the line and had better go bring it in.

Hope everyone is safe and not in the path of the storm. Larry, you ok???

Enjoy your day..
