Not a good afternoon at Wimbledon for American Bethanie Mattek-Sands.  She twisted her knee and collapsed, crying in excruciating pain before the arrival of an ambulance.  Hopefully there will be news tomorrow about her condition.

There are always more slips and tumbles on the grass than other surfaces, but it's not that often that a serious injury is the result.

Good Night Everyfriend!  I'm going to have a busy day tomorrow.  Working 9=1 and then picking up Kiran for the rest of the day.  She's big enough to look after herself but I like doing things with her and that's my downfall.  So I'm off to grab a few extra zzzzs tonight.  I won't have a chance tomorrow. 

May God bless us. every one!

Good morning everyone.
We had rain during the night and I expect more will fall today. We are off to the city for a Dr appointment , before that we will meet up with son and dil  and the newest member of the family. They adopted a Great Dane that has wiggled her way into their hearts. Then I get an emissions test done on my vehicle before the Dr appointment.

Jane your day sounds busy but a fun busy with Kiran. :)

Better get a move on it...Joan I hope you are feeling a lot better today..

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good Morning Everyfriend! 

Amy, it sounds like your day is going to be as busy as mine.  I hope you got a few extra zzzs last night, too.  We also had rain over night and it hasn't stopped yet.  It's supposed to stop around 8 and then start again mid afternoon.  Give the (BIG) puppy a hug from me, too. 

I wish Everyfriend a great day full of whatever you love best!

Joanie, get well and get back to us!

Good morning everyone.

I to have an early appointment with pain doctor. And I also saw the oral surgeon yesterday late, as soon as he gets an okay from heart doctor on stopping some mess he will set an date and time to remove a tooth.  One nice surprise the cost is less than I was expecting.

Amy hope your apmt goes well.  And Janie you and granddaughter have a good time.

Have to get moving

Hi everyone. It is going to be another hot day here in South Carolina getting into the mid-90's. I have no plans for today and am thankful as got up feeling very weary.  I did get the dishwasher unloaded and things out for Pat's breakfast and for my own.  I have a few things to take care of here in my office and that will likely be it for today. 

Gloria, I always enjoyed the Boston Pops but the last couple of times watching them not so much.  I have never liked rhubarb. Your fruit drinks sound good although I don't know about the yogurt.  I remember my mother using wax on some of her jars and I always liked that as would get a little piece to chew on as we didn't very often get chewing gum. I have read a couple of news story about the reduction in food stamps issued in several States since they added back a work requirement for able bodied persons. I am glad we have food stamps for people who can no longer work or for short term needs when jobs are lost. 

Jeanne, it is always sad to see a professional athlete (or anyone else) become injured. 

Jane, in my view it certainly is not a downfall to want to spend time with Kiran as those are precious moments that she will always remember.  I know she give you a lot of joy as well. 

Hal, how unusual to get a cost less than expected. 

Amy, it must be nice knowing you have all your wood delivered and stacked for the coming season. 

June, are you able to pick up the bakery items at any time during the day?

Good morning everyone, it is raining, Started about an hour ago as very light but now it is really pouring. Weather guessers say at time could be 1 to 2 inches an hour of rain. We lost power for a couple of hours yesterday, Someone hit a telephone pole the nest street from here. The elevator didn't work after the power came back and a man from the elevator company finally came at 8pm. Good thing no one was in it when that happened. The ones outside could not come in, the doors open with a fob and that is run my electric.Glad I did not have to go out, I would never be able to go down 2 flights of stairs.

AMY  no I do not know what province he was born in. I can ask my niece, she most likely has that information. She has gone back to the late 1700's so has a lot of family history. Wash and wax your van? Are you wanting to drive in the rain today?   Thank you for the Fourth greetings. I can never remember when Canada Day is so will wish you a belated wish for a great day.

JUNE  I am slow getting started in the mornings, too. Long gone are the days I would shut the alarm off and start off full speed. I remember when that government surplus was given to needy families. I was young then and I know one sister whe was a widow with 3 little ones would get that food.

JANE  11 jars of jam should last you awhile unless you start giving them away to family members. Nothing bought can compare with the taste and aroma of homemade jam and jelly. We had a lot of wild grape vines and boy did I make jars of jam with them. I had a big pressure canner after a few years of canning in that huge copper tub for the hot water canning. The pressure canner sure cut out hours of waiting. I better make a note of Canada Day on July  1st.

AMY did you get your van washed yesterday? If so you were asking for the rai you have today. For me that and washing windows it was sure to rain the next day.

HAL  I called the pain doctor yesterday to cancel my appointment and tell them I will not go for anymore shots in my back. The first one is the only one that worked for a month.

LARRY  I am not really fond of yogurt but in the fruit drink I have been making there is no taste of the yogurt but a little of some good stuff with all that fruit. The most fruit in it is watermelon. When Keith Lockhart took over the Boston Pops I still enjoyed it but the last 2 or 3 years with those guests he has and the music they play I do not bother. This state has finally started checking more on those getting food stamps. They caught one man who was getting a couple hundred dollars worth of them. He would go to BJ's wholesale club-like Costco- and buy all kind of food, put it in his van and they followed him. He them went to a small neighborhood store and unloaded the van there. The items were put on the shelves and the prices went up. Needless to say they were latino and could hardly speak English. Both men ended in jail. Some they found selling the food stamps and then go but booze or drugs. Makes me happy when people like that get caught. Then some who really need that help might get about $30 a month. That sure does not go far.

LLOYD  glad you slept good last night. I think it was after 4 this morning when I finally fell asleep.

JOAN  if you get to check in, thoughts and prayers are with you hoping you go home soon. Feel better.

Gloria, I was in to see my pain doctor this morning. And we talked about the shots in my back.  He said that obviously where they were shooting me was the right spot, since I got some relief for a couple of days, until to Lidocane wore off.  So now he want to go in the same area and "burn" the nerve endings in that area.  He said the effective rate of success was around 80 percent, in most cases and duration of the "burnings" was 6-8 months.  I ask him if they were so successful why they didn't do that instead of the cortisone shots.  Insurance companies was the answer to me.  And the procedure can be repeated.

They put you out to do the procedure just like the cortisone shots in the spinal area.

You may want to ask about the procedure.  I am scheduled for September, they are running that far behind in their schedule.

Good afternoon, it rained all day, but now the sun is out.  the humidity has gone down also.

Joan, sending prays and good thoughts your way.

Gloria, I enjoyed the Capital 4th this year.  I forgot the women's name who sang, but she had a clear beautiful voice.  I use to like the Beach Boys, but as someone said the group was not all the same.  The country western singer, has a wonderful speaking voice.   I first watched the fellow who was the MC, on General Hospital my favorite soap. When Mark had us all watch the Boston 4th. it was just tradition the children all would set with us.  those days are gibe forever, but such good memories

amy hope your husband does well, with his trip to the doctor.

Hal, I had those shots for a few years, but finally gave up.  If they last longer, but not worth it for a few days..Hope you have heard from your family.

I was in this morning, but evidently did not post anything. no memory !!!!

Larry, they have a coffee bar on the first floor, in both the main floor in the club house, and also one in our C building, both places are filled each morning with bakery goods, but when it is gone, it is gone. Coffee and tea go on all day.

Gloria, I have been waking some mornings at five a.m. for a bathroom call,  then sometimes doze off a bit, but at 6 a.m. I get my first thyroid pill, a patch for nitro, and a blood pressure check, so by then I am ready to start the day. I think that is why I am starting to fade out by noon, and the rest of the day is very slow...naps, etc. and a lot of reading and computing. Very little energy left in this body, but glad I can do what I do.

LARRY, I didn't mean that being with Kiran was a downer.  What I mean was that my wanting to spend time with her when she's here adds to my tired feeling at the end of the day.  I'll take the tired feeling over not having her every day.  She lights up my day!

However, I'm extremely tired tonight so I think I'll just go turn on the TV, sit on the sofa and see if my eyes remain open.  I rather doubt that they will.  In fact, I think I'll put on my jammies first.

Enjoy the rest of your day, Everyfriend...whatever it brings your way.  And my God bless your slumber and bring you a happy tomorrow.

JaneS not sure but I think I may know what you are trying to say to hall.It is always good to have the young here but always good  to see them go. they just need to come more often when I need help. it makes my day when the grand's
come and run over jump on my lap and give me a big hug and juice smooch.
Have a great rest of the day. it is about time for me to wish all sweet dreams.

Hi everyone. This will be another hot day getting up in the area of 93 degrees with a chance of rain.  We were under another severe thunderstorm warning for two or three hours last evening but still not a drop of rain.  Our main activity today is to go to our planned dinner at the Chop House.  We will eat around 2 pm as Scott has to get back and get ready for work later this afternoon.  Later this morning I plan on taking a package to the UPS drop off place as have an order we need to return to Amazon.  I awoke at 4 am this morning and couldn't go back to sleep for got up at six.  I will try to rest for a couple of hours later this morning before we go to dinner. 

Lloyd, I did not get the email you mentioned. 

Gloria, that is too much rain in such a short time that you were expecting yesterday.  Couldn't your doors be opened from the inside so the people could be let back in.  I used to get up and start at full speed also but that seems to have gone.  This morning I had to sit on the side of the bed from just arising and it probably took me five minutes to get dressed.  Sorry to hear you are not getting relief from your shots in your back.  It sounded hopeful in the beginning.  Apparently there is a lot of fraud in the food stamp area and that seems to exist in many of the government programs from Medicare/Medicaid.  I had a call from a company wanting to send me a new CPAP machine.  I have no idea where they got the idea I needed a new one, which I don't, and think it may be a way to scam the insurance companies. 

Hal, isn't it great to know that the insurance companies are now telling the doctors what they can do for their patients and when.  I sure hope the burning procedure brings you relief. 

deAngel, I wonder if the singer you mentioned was the Broadway Star?  I had never heard of her but she did have a nice voice.  I also enjoyed Trace Adkins.  I had never heard Kelly Pickler sing and she has sort of a unique voice.   Glad your weather has cleared off. 

June, your day does get an early start.  It is nice the bakery items are left until gone rather than just being discarded. 

JaneS, I hope you didn't think I was criticizing you regarding your time with Kiran.  I understand completely how tiring having to be constantly doing something or even being around children, who have so much energy to burn, can be tiring.  We love having them around but, as Lloyd said, then love to see them go home also so we can rest.

Good morning everyone!

The cleaning lady is coming by this afternoon.  To  stratighten things up and dust and vacuum.

Larry,I went by my oldest daughters house after going to pain doctor to get her opinion about this new (to me) procedure and they were babysitting their four grandkids.  Wall to wall kids.  Lol.  You are right, more energy than the law allows.

I have one of my granddaughters.and her husband coming by around lunch time to share a meal.  I will let her pick something up and I will buy.  I have a great family..heck even better than great.

I do envy (I know that's a sin) all the.rain you have been getting. Once again a line formed here late afternoon and split when it got us and rained both sides and missed us.

I hope all of you have a great day. Janie I know you're going to have a great day, Ddont et your granddaughter why are you out too much, but have a good time.

Lord I know you and I have a good time with all the family there it's always nice to have family around when all said and done family is probably the most important people in the world and all of us .

Well I want to get off of here and see what I can get into I'm trying to figure out how to order tires on those Instacart where do I deliver stuff to the house I've got one free delivery so I'll let you know I comes out.

Good Morning to all. I woke early today and was thinking about a time when our Sandy said she took cold showers, so after my medicine girl gave me the morning stuff I took that cold shower. WOW ! what a jolt to have the cold water hit the top of my head, but after a minute, I was enjoying the whole thing...like a dip in the lake. And I feel more alert that I have for weeks.

Sandy...thanks for that cold shower tip. I love it.

There are things posted to enjoy, but I will pass. I don't play shuffle board, or the putting green.....my cart would get in the way. Something new with remote control cars...I may just watch that a bit after lunch, and then at 2:30 they offer Wiibowling on the big t.v.....I will be napping by then for sure. And this evening a DVD of Tony Bennet will be shown....I'd rather stay home and read. And so the day will go. I am content.

Well, i'm up but I'm not sure I'm attem yet.  I decided to see what I actually do all day and I started a journal.  Wonder what the kids will think when they find that! 

I have the bedding in the washer and dryer so I'll be redoing the bed at some point today...if I don't forget.  I guess I'll remember by the time I go to crawl in tonight.

So far today, I emptied the dishwasher, got dressed, washed up the breakfast dishes, fed the dogs, made coffee, washed a couple loads of bedding, messed up an application, went outside with my hair all anyhow and met two neighbors, did a couple puzzles and the drier just stopped.  Not a very exciting day.  Anyone want it?  I'd be happy to switch!

GOOD MORNING!

I have never really liked the terminology "Old People" but this makes me feel better after reading this it seems it is not a bad thing! 
 

"OLD PEOPLE" PRIDE
 
Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps, cover their hearts, stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.
 
Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy, and Hitler.. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mentionVietnam
 
If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women and treat them with great respect.
 
Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
 
Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.
 
Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children, grandchildren or their animals.
 
It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.
 
This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country, and decent values. We need them now more than ever.
 
Thank God for Old People....

🎊 HAPPY "55th"

ANNIVERSARY 🎊

PAT 🎊 LARRY


I wish you many more years of happiness together.  Enjoy your meal tonight with your family.  🎂 HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂 wishes also, to Pat.

JANE, you, too, will probably be shocked at what all you do in one day when you see it in black and white!  😍

Hoping that Our JOAN might be back with us today!  Sure hope and pray she is feeling much better. 

JUNE, I have been forced to take a cold shower before, but think I will pass on doing it voluntarily!  😘 I do not take hot showers, as it dries my skin out, but Colorado water is COLD, even in the summer!  When we lived in Arizona, we did take cold showers because the water there is so warm right out of the tap! 

HAL, it appears you are doing just fine batching it!  You are blessed, as you know, to have your caring family spend time with you in your sweeties absence.  Totally agree with you about the little ones having more energy than the law allows.  IF only we could borrow some from them!  Sure holding good thoughts for you if you decide to proceed with the nerve burning.  I know many that have done this and seem to get the relief they need. 

GLORIA, I am sorry that your shots have no longer helped with your back.  Maybe you need to have the procedure done that HAL is talking about?

LARRY, it is very frustrating for the doctors as well, to be told by insurance companies just what a patient needs are! 

My thoughts and prayers are with two of my sons today.....the oldest is driving from Chicago to Denver with two of my grandsons.  The youngest is driving from Austin to Denver with his wife and the items that the packers would not take!  They are most anxious to get here to be with their Doggie, Oliver. 

I wish you ALL a good Saturday. 

Jenny

LARRY & PAT
Happy Anniversary


Good morning everyone, almost noon and I am just getting here.

HAL  I have had more shots in my back than I can remember and only the first one helped for more than 1 day. I was never put out for the shots and they did hurt. Only once did he put the shots in the spine area and that is when he hit the nerve that had my left leg jump up off the table. I yelped that time and he asked what was the matter and I told him. He did it the second time, guess he wanted to see what would happen and the leg came up from the table again. Since then I have had trouble with my left leg. I told him that and he said nothing. I will wait till I see my doctor and tell her about it. Walking, sitting or laying down there is no more relief. Mine is from the spine to my left hip. When I stand even 5 minutes I get a burning sensation in that area.

GLORIA de  it rained here all day yesterday, too. This morning the sun is shining but another storm due late today.

JUNE I have no energy at all any more. I have to make myself get up in the mornings because I know it is going to hurt. When I see my doctor in a couple of weeks I am going to ask her about either a change in them or stronger. I do not think they help much anymore, been taking the same ones about 4 years now.

LARRY  in this area we got a little over 1/12 inches of rain, along the coast they got over 2 inches. Our on Cape Cod in places close to 5 inches of rain. I think the doors could be pushed open from the inside if there was someone in the lobby to see them. I see ads on TV for different things if you have Medicare will cost you nothing. To me if it is legit they would not have to advertise.

HAL  tiy are not the only one wanting rain. If all the areas with fires now got the rain we had yesterday those fires would have been put out.

JANE  you did a lot this morning. I did get dressed, have me oatmeal and turned on the TV and laid on the couch. Then got up from there and made the bed up and here I am. Might check me email after of just look for something on TV and las on the couch again.

JENNY  hope you do not mind but I copied your "Old People". They put out a monthly newsletter here and use stories like this at times. I will email it to the man who does that and see if he will use it. So true and we are all old people here. Like you I will take warm showers, cold ones are too shocking to this old body. Safe travels to both your sons today.

I pray we hear from JOAN soon.

Good afternoon,  we also had a lot of rain yesterday, the bird bath is overflowing.

Jenny, I enjoyed that post Old Folks.

Gloria, when I was in rehab in the nursing home, Medicare said I would need some sort of a gadget to put on my socks, as I had trouble bending, with my bad back. they sent home a walker.  also said I needed a transport wheel chair, which they would pay for.  A month later, I got a bill for the sock gadget, it is still in the wrapper, and they sent a rental statement for the wheel chair. I had to pay a rent fee on it.  I had it two months never used it.  the walker they did give me, but I still only use a cane.  the walker I use to get out of the tub, as it is a garden tub, very wide.   I sent the wheel chair back

Jenny, I have a Potpourri file and I copied your "Old People" Pride to that.  I also sent it to Dot who often sends such things to friends.

Janie, I am relating to your post. I am here, I have done nothing compared to what you have accomplished, but I did get some walking done and then sat outside in a swing-bench and got more exercise doing that with my legs. Came home, lay down and read, and in an hour I will go down for lunch. I'm feeling pretty worthless, but still content with having the excuse of "age".

Jenny, I have copied and printed "Old People Pride" and intend to take it down and post it on our bulletin boards. It made me feel good, so I will pass it on to others that need a boost in their morale. My friend that introduced me to cold showers had a severe stroke, and she is much younger than me. She claims she uses no soap, needs no lotions, so since this seems to have given me more energy, I may continue with the program. It cant hurt.

Gloria, when I had the sore on my leg that took forever to heal because of  the P.A.D. situation, they gave me a pain pill when they had to treat the sore. It was a narcotic, Percocet, and I did not want to keep taking it, but it really helped and was really needed, so after a while  I ordered extra strength Tylenol and that really did help. Gloria dear, life is not life when you are living with pain as you are. Do ask your doctor about percoset. At our age, I don't think we have to be concerned about habit forming medications.
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Good afternoon.

I am late :(  Last night we had dandy t storms roll through and both dogs did not like it..neither did I as that meant note much sleep. I hit the floor a running this morning ,first was gather up the wood chips from the load of wood to take to the dump along with a big can of last winters ashes.When we got to the dump we found that a baby black bear had fallen into one of the dumpsters.poor baby was so scared!!! The  men were going to put down some wooden pallets for him to climb out on. Wonder where Momma bear was???

Like Jane I also did laundry and hung the bedding out, then washed and hulled 6 quarts of strawberries ,emptied the hot tub and refilled it and that is about it for me today!!!

Yesterday was a long day appointment was for 3.30 but she was running behind and we didn't get in till 4:45....boy I was so glad to get home . Friday night traffic is  stinker ,everyone in such a hurry!!

Now I need to figure out something for supper......

Enjoy your day everyone..
