Shirley, our Perfect Weather Patio is right there - just through that Soda Shoppe door.....  Bring your coffee or iced tea and a cookie or two from the hidey hole and join me.   :D


Now, folks!  Just tell me how lucky I can get.  I just had a phone call  this morning warning me that the extended warranty on my car is about to run out, but if I just "press 1" I can save it!  This is really super because my 18 year old car, which never did have an extended warranty, went to the dump a year ago.   :2funny:   :2funny:

Jeanne Lee, that sounds much like the extended warranty letter I'd get about my 2003 car.  One year Norm checked to see how much it would be and the yearly price was more than the car was worth at the time.  I never had an extended warranty either. 

It's a lovely 80 degrees (+/-) and I've enjoyed sitting out on my deck and that is where I ate the lunch Tom brought me.  There was a nice breeze and shade but the shade will leave soon as the sun moves around.  Or do we move?  Whatever!

Amy, what a beautiful message of our service men and those that love them.Thank  you.

Larry, Today is not as good as yesterday. I woke up all tired out, so I will take the day off, in hope I will wake tomorrow ready to come alive. My son will be leading Bible studies and I sure don't want to miss that.

   Janie, I am so happy that you are healing easily and nicely. I never mind the actual extractions, but I hate the healing process which is slower for me.   

Time to go fix an easy  lunch.

Just returned from a round of errands....

*I dropped two things at the vet
*Mad a deposit at the bank
*Paid my taxes
*Picked up some "easy-to-eat" stiff at tje groce
*stopped at the mail box for today's mail

And now I'm back home to stay for the rest of the day.

I also found out that my satellite receiver is not only not doing it's job, it's become obsolete and no amount of nudging is going to make it do it's job.  Someone else's trees are in the way and the only option is to upgrade and move the satellite to a better reception area.  Shouldn't those things last more than 10 years?  And isn't there anything we can do to stunt the growth of other people's trees?  Oh well!  What will be will be!

A good Tuesday HELLO to all from Vail Colorado! 

We drove up yesterday morning to spend a couple of days with our son and two grand boys! 

The drive was very enjoyable.....the views of our beautiful mountains are always spectacular no matter what time of year!  I feel so blessed. 

We took the family to our favorite German Restaurant and I am sorry to say it was very disappointing.  My 20$ wiener schnitzel lunch meal was the size of a McDonalds sausage patty.  The meat was so thin it was not even tasteable. The spetzel was dry and tasteless as well.  Very sad to see this as this was one of the last restaurants that I liked the food and now it becomes one to never patronize again.  😤

On the other hand we enjoyed the beautiful flowers all over the little villiage.....so beautiful. There are so mant foreign visitors here, it is fun to see how happy they are to be here. 

I have been sitting on the deck near the edge of Gore Creek enjoying the beautiful views and listening to the stream.  So peaceful.  My grandsons are such lovable little guys.....sure enjoy being with them. 

I wis I could bring you all here to enjoy this as well.  Nice and cool in the shade with no humidity at all. 

JANE, I am so happy your dental procedure went well.  I hope it heals well now and you can be done! 

HAL, I share your feelings of going to the dentist.....most every experience I have ever had has not been good.  Now I stay away because I am not in pain, and if I go they always cause some problems.  Not wise, for sure, but it works for me.  I am very good at brushing several times a day and use a battery flosser device after I eat, which keeps my teeth nice and clean. 

JEANNE LEE, that is very good to read about how your trash company is going to work with you.  Good for them.   Haha regarding them offering you such a deal for your extended warranty!  CrAzY!

I wish you all a good rest of your day.

Jenny

Oh, Jenny, how I would love to roam the streets of Vail right now.  Every time I've been there the flowers all over town, hanging & in the planters up & down the street are absolutely gorgeous!  I do envy you & wish you would post street photos!  We stayed in different areas of Vail, Eagle-Vail, Avon... & one other little area, "back in the day".  I am day dreaming.......

Jane, have you talked to anyone in your area about the little indoor antennas?  I am loving my TVs with no monthly charges & am more than satisfied with getting the local stations plus all these GET, ME & channels that bring the old shows in again.  I bought mine at Sam's Club, 2 in a box for about $60, all I had to do was tack them to a wall (comes with little push pins) & screw the thingy in where the cable was.  I liked them so well I got me another pair (1 per TV) & got to get a new TV for my bedroom... will have 4 good ones so I can cook, iron, sleep or be on the computer & still watch TV.  I saved enough the first month to pay for all 4 antennas. I don't remember the name of the ones I got, my son checked with his engineer friends & seem I lucked into getting the ones they approved of!   :thumbup: I know they are online as well. 

Need to check on cats, one came in to eat & sleeping right behind me but Tiger & Mama Callie are holding out, they've been showing up later when it cools down a little (to 90).

JaneS I shouldn't tell you and I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT, but you could get a sparer fill it with roundup and stand with your back to the wend facing the tree and spray it, or get him to let you higher a tree trimmer and have it pruned out  your dish. if he is a nice neighbor could explain to him his tree grew in the way of your dish and it was there fist. now if it shades you in the right place you may have to move your dish. Nancy and I went to the Amish auction  today and bought a bushel and 1/2 of peaches  and two and 1/2 bushels of tomatoes , we Have this afternoon caned eleven quarts of the peaches.more to do tomorrow. peaches first then the tomatoes.i have one of those long steam chopper's I take the  tomatoes and liquefy them and drink it often. Have a great rest of the day.

SHIRLEY, my son the TV expert (it's his business and he's been doing it in some capacity since he was big enough to hold his end of a tv set for deliveries) told me those thins work well if you are on flat land or fairly near the station or their signal antenna.  Most of the stations that serve us are on the other side of a mountain or many miles away.  We have to depend on cable or satellite for any service at all.  We are in a valley surrounded by mountains.  There is a relay station on top of a mountain that I can see from here but my son says it's at least 45 miles away. 

Back in the days when everyone had antennas, if you weren't at least 50 feet above the roof you didn't get anything but snow.  Believe me, I've explored all the possibilities!  And if there were something that would work as well as your gadget, I'm pretty sure my son would install it in a minute just so he wouldn't have to listen to me complain.  But thanks for the thought.

JENNY, I'd love to sit there with you and listen to the stream.  I wouldn't even interrupt your reverie!

Good idea, LLOYD but I'm not in the habit of killing trees for entertainment.  And SHE isn't about to do anything to accommodate anyone but herself.  Her stuff is her stuff and she is very protective of it.  If she even thought I had anything to do with her tree dying, she haul me into court.

I woke up so tired, so took the day off and just loafed. Did a lot of sleeping and reading. So early this evening I went down to check my mail box, then out for a walk around the property. It's a lovely evening, so I sat out on one of the swinging benches and enjoyed. Now it is time to fix some supper. It will be  salad supper and then more reading or play some games on the computer. I'm sort of bored with my own company.

I'm up; doggies have been out and fed; I have my coffee and some grapefruit and I'm waiting for the sleepyheads to arise.

It's 68º and foggy as heck out there.  I'm glad I don't have to go anywhere this morning.  It' looks like a Fall morning.  I can hardly see to the corner.

The hole in my mouth hurts a little this morning but I'm going to hold off on the Alleve for a while and see what transpires.

Good morning everyone...
Well Jane this sleepyhead  finally got up. :2funny:
What about taking 1/2 of an Alleve? Don't let the pain sneak up on you.

Into town this morning for blood work then home to tickle those weeds right out of the garden.

Better get a move on ...

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyone!

Well Janie I can promise you it does look or feel like fall here.  Hot and muggy and dry (again).  I have to get myself outside and do some watering or some of my plants are going to vanish.

Lloyd you and Nancy have lots of work ahead.  But some good eating this fall/winter.

I have PT today (pool).  Think I will ask if they will install a beach so we can lounge around.....sure they will..   ;D

Hey Amy, how do you tickle a weed?  And do they laugh loudly or just sorta snicker........back when we just got after them with a hoe or pulled them.  My grandfather had some hoes that must have been a older than Moses and had been sharpened so many times that they were just a shadow of themselves, but you could weed a row in little to no time.  Of course as a kid, it took forever and lots of other things I would rather be doing.  Also what does tickling do? Make them die of embarrassment?

June, hope you awake rested this morning.  I never get a full nights sleep I am up and down most of the night taking care of business, most of the time I get right back to sleep.  But, sometimes, my old mind gets to working overtime and I cant get it to shutdown.

We have one more month of hot weather, August, and then we will start to have some cool weather and God willing some fall rains.  The Gulf has been quite, well except that one little low that formed right off the coast and gave us a little rain.  The Pacific has been fairly quite to.  Sometimes we get some good rains from the Pacific from those storms.

Got to get busy, everyone have a great day.  Coffee is ready for those who want a cup.

Hi everyone. This morning starts off nice and sunny but we will see cloudy this afternoon with a small chance of any rain.  Besides some household chores, many of which I have already accomplished, the only thing on tap for today is meeting Scott and Jennifer at Diablos for dinner fairly early this evening and then they will be out to spend a couple of hours.

Pat and Jennifer had an enjoyable time out yesterday visiting JoAnn's and then having a good meal at a Chinese Buffet that is right next door to JoAnn's. When they got home they sat down and Pat started to show her how to croquet and realized that Jennifer was left handed.  So Jennifer will have to learn from some videos on the Internet.  Pat said she knew that it was difficult for a right handed person to teach a left handed person to do that.  Pat is going to let Jennifer have the portable Bernina sewing machine she has as it is too heavy for Pat to take anywhere and she has a regular Bernina in her sewing studio and the Singer Featherweight downstairs in the sun room so no longer has a need for the other machine.   

For the first time in a number of days I felt good yesterday and got out as planned and made quick stops at a hardware store, had lunch, made a quick stop at Walmart looking for something I didn't find, and finally stopped at Aldi's.  Rather than watch TV last evening Pat and I elected to listen to our audiobooks.

I went into my backyard a little bit ago with my trimming shears and cut out some creeping vines that were growing in one of our two corner bushes as well as trimming some of the branches of the holly bush that were getting grown out quite a bit.  Tomorrow I will be able to put it on the street and the city will pick the trimming up.

Lloyd, I have had a fresh South Carolina peach for breakfast yesterday and again this morning and they were so good.  My mother used to can peaches and they were so good throughout the year for special occasions. 

Hal, do they have a lift into and out of the pool?  At the new community center pool they built in the county we moved from they made one end of the pool a gradual incline so you could easily get into and step out of the pool.  They had a separate lap pool next to the pool I just described.  Did your grandfather have a grinding wheel to sharpen his hoes and other tools?  My dad had one in his shop attached to an electric motor that was attached to his long workbench.  Lloyd, do you have a similar grinder in your shop?

Good morning.  Been a while since I have written anything here, but I do try to read the messages each day.   Just don't seem to have much to add to the conversations.  But, I do enjoy reading about everyone's days. 

Larry, I did get another order from the on-line Walmart and, again, was very pleased with how it all worked out.   They were out of one item and they substituted a larger jar of mayo than the one I ordered and a larger package of boxes of Kleenex than the one I ordered. And, I wasn't charged any extra for the substitutions. And, I have been pleased with the quality of the produce that I have gotten.  Much better than I have gotten in the actual store.  So, I think I am as pleased as you are with how it all works. 

Larry,  I am left handed and I have read that when a right-handed person is trying to teach a left-handed person how to crochet,  they should sit across from each other and that is suppose to be very helpful.   Also,  there are a lot of You-tube videos that teach a left-handed people how to crochet.   I have been crocheting since I was a little girl.   My mother was left-handed, so I guess that is how I learned.   I don't remember having to try to teach anyone how to crochet, 

My fingers don't like to work right anymore, so it takes me longer to make something these days.  My fingers get all stiff.  But, I am still at it.  Making a afghan right now for a little great-grand daughter.  I used to do a lot of afghans for the Linus Project, but haven't done any for a long time.  And, have made many, many larger afghans for all of my children and grand children and lots of them as wedding gifts.  It is very relaxing and something I can do and watch TV at the same time. 

Hope everyone will have a good day.  It has been hot here on the east coast.  We have not had the thunderstorms that have been predicted for our area for a week now.  It seems they are all around us, but we just don't get the rain, which is very much needed right now.

Nancy and I have been at it since about 7: A M. and about 11:AM I found the peach I had been hunting for ( last one ) Nancy is putting the last caner full on Now, that makes 40 quarts  saved if no more break. Had one quart brake in last cooker. I think we are going to take the rest of the day off after dinner and Nap.
I should had her take pictures of me hard at it. I pealed and sectioned them.you should see my lily white hands. see you all later. Nap time now and maybe eat a late noon meal.

LARRY, back when I was a Girl Scout leader, the kids decided that they wanted to learn to knit and since one of our leaders was moving away at the end of that school year, we decided to make squares for an afghan for her to take with her.  Unfortunately, I had 4 left-handed kids in the troop and it was practically impossible for them to learn from any of the leaders who were all right-handed.  I was voicing my concerns at home and my 14 year old daughter who is also left-handed and taught herself to knit, volunteered to come to my meetings and work with the kids who needed help.  She taught all of them to knit and I'm happy to say that the 3 who I still see, still enjoy knitting.  One of them is very proficient.  I asked her to take pictures and send them to Cindy to show her what she's responsible for.  She did and Cindy was amazed!  It seems she's the one who had the most trouble learning.

Isn't it nice to be able to see the accomplishments of someone you helped to learn?  Pat will be so pleased that she encouraged Jennifer.

T  storm is holding off so far....
Hal, the weeds are going to have to wait for me to tickle them more, I started to pull the weeds and along came the mosquitoes to help me. I didn't appreciate their help so came in doors to work.

I just finished cutting the grass  and trimming,that job is done for a while. When I catch my breath I think some cinnamon buns should be made

Joy, I am also left handed and learned to crochet from a book. A lot of trail and error and mostly error but I did manage it.and you're right have the left handed person sit across from the right handed person.

Lloyd, I can't wait till the peaches are in here.you will enjoy all your hard work come winter.

Jane, I was also in Scouting but I am sure the boys wouldn't want to learn how to crochet. I knew a gentleman that did knit and do embroidery work. His daughter was in skating and he would knit her nice warn socks.

Better go make a cup of tea, will be lots if anyone wants one and I will put some  cinnamon buns in the hidey hole..

Amy,  I have read about a lot of men who do needle work.  In fact,  on one of the You-tube videos is a guy named "Mike " who teaches crochet projects.

I have a brother-in-law who does beautiful counted cross stitch pieces.  He has won numerous blue ribbons at our state fairs.  Even did a big tablecloth for a gift for his wife.   Her name is Rose and the tablecloth had roses all over it.  It was beautiful.

And, the big, huge football player,  Rosie Greer, did various kinds of needlework.  Forgotten just what he did do, but remember seeing pictures of him working on a project.

Hello everyone, did not realize I had not posted since Saturday. Felt rotten all week end and then had appointments Monday and yesterday that wore me out. I have just read the posts, too many to comment on but

SHIRLEY  if you could find out the name of the antennas you bought for your TV's I would appreciate it. I have been asking around her to see if anyone has one but no one I know does. Cox just raised my monthly bill again. If that keeps up I will just have my internet and phone soon. I have checked online for the inside antennas but there are so many and the price goes from about $10.00 up to $75.00. This building is on a hill and I am on the top floor.

JANE  I was lucky with the last 4 teeth I had extracted, other than the numbness wearing off I really had no pain. Very little bleeding. The dentist said he was putting special gauze in the holes that would help heal and the gauze would fall out when it's job was done. I have read since then there is a gauze they use now on woulds in the battlefields that stops the bleeding on wounds and wondered if that is what was used on those 4 holes in my mouth.

I pray that JOAN will be agle to go home and come in and say hello to us soon.

Good Morning dear hearts, lately I have wakened two or three times to travel to the bathroom, don't know what brought on that change, but we have to accept it..or else.

My Gary is coming over early to answer some of my questions,and then we will go down for  Bible study. He has been gone for nearly three weeks, so it will be a treat to see him. They had a wonderful time In McCall with their kids and grandkids. Now it is back to their busy lives again.

Janie, don't wait for a bad pain to get started. No need for that.

Amy..good advice to our Janie..if she doesn't want a full dose, better to try a Half.

                                             :)

                                         

Back Again, My son came over early so we had a nice hour together. He cleaned up some stuff in my computer, gave me some tips on removing more, in hopes I will get more speed out this dear old Mac.

His Bible class is being shared with another young man…they are taking turns with the book of Matthew.  Gary did the first 12 pages of Matthew, Chapter 3. One lady told me what he said today was just what she needed to hear. She felt inspired. I always feel such Pride in my son. I hope that is not a sin.

My day off yesterday paid off. I feel great today. I may go to another program at 1:30. We discuss current topics and have a root beer float afterwards. I'm beginning to think I am real just plain lazy, and have to shape up or ship out. And I choose the first. I would rather drop dead being active than just waste away.

I hope you are all feeling well and frisky. Hug
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Joy and Amy, both my dad and his brother learned crocheting, in fact, my uncle crocheted a beautiful bedspread for his wife.  When I visited my cousin in 1990, the bedspread was in use on a bed that got little use.  My dad knit socks and before WWII started, Dad, Mother and I all knit sweaters for soldiers; we worked on the same sweater.  Dad purled different than Mother and I did but we three enjoyed doing the knitting.  My mother tatted and tried to teach me, but it was my dad who finally taught me to tat.  Now with arthritis in my hands and fingers, I cannot tat.

Dad was a good cook too.

Oh, Mary Ann.  We had a really special neighbor who tried to teach me to tat, but I just couldn't get the hang of it.

But, she did beautiful tatting.  I still have several large doilies that she tatted and I do still use them.   They are not easy to take care of, tho.   She also did a lot of tatted edgings for towels and hankerchiefs.  I still have some of those, also.  And, some linen doilies that my mother made and then used the tatted edgings to put around the edge. 

Years ago, I had a nice set of padded table pads for my dining room table and when  I turned them over, they were perfect for blocking the tatted doilies when I would wash and starch them.  Used to pin them to the table pads and cover them with a Turkish towel.  They turned out beautiful. The ones I use now don't get that good of special treatment anymore.  I do the best I can using my ironing board.

I have tried several times when we had yard sales to sell a lot of my crocheted doilies, but nobody was the least bit interested in them.  I have a whole pillowcase full of them.  I do still use the  tatted pieces, tho.  Love the delicate look of them.

Joy, in the days when I could only buy white pillow cases, ones that had to be ironed, I had to crochet edgings on them, any color, but they had to have edgings.  Now, I don't have that "phobia" and none of my current cases have edgings.  I still have many of the cases I edged, but wouldn't think of using them because I don't want to have to iron them!  I don't know if that's laziness or progress.

I have some doilies in use, made by my mother or me and one that I don't know if her mother made it or not.  I have one on my mother's sewing cabinet that my dad's mother made for me.  I really don't have a lot in use, but I like them.

well friends as I often say I am a jack of all trades master of none, I  both did
Knitting and crocheting. I first learned Knitting when I was driving over the road
I would take my Knitting into the truck stop and go to the truckers table and set down and go to work ( lot of teasing Lot of fun ) the reason i quit knitting then was because , I would put it in the sleeper and bouncing around the retainers would jar off of the needles and drop lot of stitches. spent too much time picking them up. I made a sweater and looking it over after done and right in the middle of the back was a hole caused by when picking up the stitches I either picked up a purl stitch when it should been a knit or other way around. but I have too many irons in the fire now so have not done it in a long time, Maybe when I get old and setting around will do it again. now too busy canning to think about it. Have a rest of the day great.
