Callie, it is my recipe that uses milk because I use Campbell's soup and you have to add liquid to the can.  I know other Progresso soups are "ready to eat" so I would assume the Tomato Bisque is too.  I have checked Tomato with Basil on my grocery list.  It does not say Bisque and I don't know what makes a soup Bisque.  I do know I like tomato soup with basil.  My soup also calls for paprika and onion.  When I eat/slurp the Tomato with Basil soup, I'll let you know what I think.

Late getting here today.  I slept in a little later than usual, as I was cold and got up and pushed the thermostat up and went back to sleep.


Then I had to rush to get myself breakfast and get dressed.   The PT was coming at 11 to do the paper work for my discharge.  She also walked with me down to get my mail, just as a last exercise.  So, now I only has the nurse coming and I am not sure how long that will be for.

I was pleased with all the ones that came for the therapy.  They all were nice and pleasant and certainly did help me a lot.  I know it was a kind of pain with them in and out just about every day, but they were happy with the goals that were set and accomplished.  Now, I just have to try and keep up with the exercise plan they gave me.

It really turned chilly overnight.   Lots of wind.

I had a doctor's visit yesterday with the cardiologist and he was pleased with my progress and the reports from all the help that I had over the past couple weeks.  I had taken the records with me from all their visits.  My EKG was good, and he said to just keep on with the same medicines, and come back in January.

I hope everyone will have a great evening.

I woke up this morning thinking about our 911 disaster. Could picture the horror in my mind, but forgot who the perpetrators were. So got on the computer while it was still dark outside, and came up with the answer. An organization of terrorists called Al Qeda, whose leader was Osama Bin Laden, an Arab. who formed this Islam Terrorist group.  How soon we forget.
 
We are having a Harvest Hoedown program today...special luncheon, then on to the program. Of course I will attend it all. Then come home, and read and rest. Tomorrow we are having a Red Hat Singalong, and I will need to participate in that. Plus, volunteers are needed to fill cookie bags for another program. I would like to help...depending on what the body allows.

Nearly time to go chow down, so I will see you all later. June/

Had a good time today. Catfish, fried green tomatoes for lunch,then down later for the Hoe Down. Great entertainment by a husband and wife team, fun dancing ...good western music. I did one waltz with my cart, till Jill...one of our entertainment girls joined me. It was a fun time and needless to say, I am happily pooped tonight. Another busy day tomorrow so I am off to an early bed and book. Hugs, Prayers, and God's Blessings on you all, my dear friends. June

I am thrilled that you sound like the "old June" tonight.... you really are an inspiration to all of us, June.

While ago I was in the bathroom getting ready for bed, TomCat was sleeping on the floor... he follows me from room to room. Tiger has already gone off to her hidey hole, she picks a new one as soon as I discover where she is.  She has been indignant because Tom wants to sleep on my bed & she doesn't share.  Anyway, it was just a little after 8:00 so people don't usually knock on doors this late around here.... but sounded like someone pounding on a door but I could tell which one.  Tom jumped up & took off, he hides if anyone rings the bell or knocks on a door.  I knew it wasn't my imagination since it scared him, too.  Listened for a minute to see if whoever it was would knock again, didn't, so I went to get my Ruger that was still in a gun bag from the last trip to MO...

Then I started going from door to door & turning on lights.  I have the LED dusk to dawn lights all the way around the eves, front & back, so pretty bright out anyway.  Finally called the lady next door to see if it might have been them but she said they heard the same noise & thought it was someone knocking on their sun room... they went outside to check but said since their dog wasn't barking at anything, they had no idea what it was.  Since it sounded like it came from their back & I couldn't tell if front or back, I'm wondering if someone was just checking out houses & knocking on all the doors to see who is home.  We have several houses in the neighborhood empty, people have moved to nursing homes & don't want to sell yet.

Most of us have fences around the back yards but that doesn't slow them down, someone ripped the copper ground wires from the poles back there twice.   :tickedoff:   My heart has slowed down to about 120 so guess I'll go on to bed.  I don't really get scared but certainly serious about defending myself.  ;)  I feel better just telling someone about it, anyway.

Good morning everyone..

24° F here this morning ,fire is crackling away chasing the chill out. I need to buy a hatchet this morning. Neighbour gave us some cedar which is great for kindling but needs finer cutting.

Managed to get the van washed and 3 quilts delivered yesterday...plus some cleaning up.

Friend coming this morning around 7 to pick up some quilt tops to take to the quilter for daughter in love so I had better go turn the outside lights on.

June, I agree with Shirley so happy to read you had a fantastic day yesterday.

Enjoy your day everyone..

G'Morning All. Larry, i posted that letter around 10am here, i knew you would all be in the land of nod ! :), but it is still mild and sunny here and i like to take advantage of it while i can,so i do all of my PC jobs as soon as i am able then go and sit in the garden for a while,with me old mate, Little Alfie !, between us we take care of those 'pesky intruders'  :thumbup:.
I have just been reading Shirley's letter about the strange knock at her door then her going to her gun bag first, as you may know, we are not allowed fire arms here, so this is what I do to get rid of unwelcome visitors here !.
I think I have already told you how we are plagued by 'amongst others' by Wood Pigeons and Sea Gulls, the Gull's are also a 'Protected Bird' so, to keep within the law, I am armed, with a 'Multi Shot - Water Pistol' !!,as soon as I, or my mate little Alfie spot a Gull or a Woody land on the fence or in the garden, then I open fire !, much to the delight of Alfie who, gets his exercise by running up and down the garden, barking at each 'strike' !, mind you !, as soon as we go back indoors, they come back !, alas,it's a never ending story but it keeps everyone happy !.

Good morning everyone, On Wednesday night somehow I turned in my sleep onto my left side, I sleep on the right side. Well my left shoulder is the one I was going to have replaced but the insurance I had then dropped the group and I sure could not afford to pay for the surgery or hospital. That shoulder is bothering me but sleeping on it the other night I could hardly move my left arm so never even turned the PC on. Feels a bit better this morning but not doing much so far. It is 30° now, frosty this morning.

Hope I can do better here tomorrow.

Hi Everyone. It is a beautiful but cool morning here in South Carolina with a clear sky and bright sunshine.  How could it be any better.  Our housekeeper will be here soon as another two weeks have flown by.  We had a brief visit from our son this morning which was an unexpected surprise.  There is nothing else on the schedule for today and just hoping for a pretty restful day. 

Callie, at least the Progresso soup doesn't like salt near the top of the ingredient list. 

Mary Ann, you are now having some pretty chilly nights.  We are still in the 60's at night but see we will be getting into the low 50's and high 40's over the next several nights.  You piqued my curiosity so did a quick search and found that usually it's pureed seafood and cream that makes makes a soup a  bisque.  I guess on the tomato bisque they just leave out the seafood.   

Jane, new keyboard are really quite inexpensive.  I still use an old IBM corded keyboard and corded mouse on my desktop.  Good idea to put that on your Christmas list as I expect your family would appreciate a few suggestions. 

Joy, it is not too enjoyable to get up to a cold apartment or house and it feels good to lay back down in the warm bed until it warms up a bit. 

June, we may forget some of the details but thought of us who were aware of what was going on on 9/11 will likely never forget the day that changed so much in America and still impacts our lives in so many ways. It was nice to read you were up to attending the Harvest Hoedown program and special luncheon.  The dancing must have lifted your spirits as well as know you love doing that dancing. 

Shirley, that would certainly be a frightening experience with perhaps someone knocking on doors. Glad you have good outside lighting and it doesn't sound like anyone would want to encounter you as you are prepared. 

Hi Jenny. 

Amy, can we now call you Amy the hatchet lady?  :)

roley, that was such an interesting video your shared and I shared it with some of my friends.  They are making amazing advancement is so many areas and being able to restore the ability for people to walk is marvelous.  It sounds like your garden visitors make your sitting in the garden interesting and gives Alfie some good exercise.  There are many people in America who keep pushing for gun control but don't think it will happen. 

Gloria, glad you felt up to checking in this morning. 

If anyone is interesting in the transportation of the future hit little video will give you a preview:

WOW!  Larry, if I could afford that I would be in line to buy already! 

Have a yard full of robins this morning, migrating through.  See them every year & wonder if they are from Alaska as they are usually the last to come through.  The whole band are more gray than all the others, but they remember when we had huge pyracantha bush in the front & back berm.... bushes are gone but must be plenty of others in the neighborhood. 

June, on 9/11 my daughter was "in the air" somewhere back east, so we were really worried.  Just like Pearl Harbor, burned in the memory, right?  Some details fade & seem more shocking when we re-live it.

Roley/Peter, if I forget to say thanks, I really do enjoy the links. I am able to get videos on this new computer "sometimes". My server (Cox) is not good in this area and about half the time I can't even get into the mailbox provided by them.  That is a real pain since I set up most of my "shopping" (like Amazon) with that mailbox. 

Must get busy, wishing all a "Fantastic Friday".... thanks to Callie.

AMY you're right about the hugging and cooing.  This baby is definitely a KEEPER!  She doesn't mind who's playing with her as long as someone does.  This morning I played "high chair".  I held her on my lap while Ali fed her and it worked fine. 

She has such a sweet disposition and she went right to sleep last night with just a little whining.  We listened on the intercom and it was just minutes until she was asleep.  They said she is a very good traveller but Ali was glad her mom was there to help out.  It's not easy travelling with a six month old...even a well behaved one!

She actually laughed out loud for me several times.  I wish I could share this feeling better with all of you but I'm sure you understand.  I need to get off here and get ready for heir return.  They are visiting some of my daughter's friends and will be returning soon. 

I hope you are all having as much fun as I am!

Janie, you sound SO happy with your loved ones there. It makes me smile just thinking about it.

I had another good day. Our red hatters sang for others in our main Lobby. (I call it the club house, as that is where all the activities take place. Tomorrow we are having our yearly Senior Health and Wellness Expo. Outside public is also invited so hundreds of chairs will be set up and the vendors will have covered tables in the actual garden area, there will be free food and drinks of course. All I have to do is take the elevator down and I will be there.

So i am ready for bed and a good sleep. Thank you to those of you who noted my health, I wish you all the same . Love, Hugs. Good health, freedom from pain, and  Gods' very best Blessings, always. June

Good morning everyone, shoulder feeling a little better but st ill painful when I move the wrong way. Stayed in my nightgown and robe all day and just night do the same today. Hurts too much to get dressed. Oh well, this too will pass.

ROLEY  I finally watched the link you posted, very interesting. Amazing what they can do these days.

LARRY  will watch your link later.

SHIRLEY  Cox is not great  here either. Every Saturday for some reason it goes out and always when I am watching something I am enjoying.

JANE  I know just how you are feeling, seems like yesterday I was enjoying my first grand and then my first great grandson.

AMY  we had rain overnight and gloomy this morning.

Don't think I will be here Monday and Tuesday. Doctor appointment Monday and dentist Tuesday. Also get my flu shot Monday when I get back here, a nurse comes every year with the shots.
Have a great day.

Hi Everyone. Today's forecast shows that we will be having a lot warmer and day today than yesterday as we will get up to around 80 degrees and have wind and a possibility of rain. It is to be cloudy all day.  My schedule is light for today as just plan on going to a meeting and then stopping to get the air pressure checked in my tires as have had a low pressure light on the dash for several days.   I look forward to watching some college football this afternoon and early evening. 

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day with just the housekeeper here and then at noon we went out to eat our main meal of the day.  I was laying down resting and my Ring doorbell rang and it was the man I had called about giving me an estimate on the cost of pressure washing my house and fixing my gate.  He has to get back to me on the costs. 

Shirley, I can just visualize you with the flying car.  That sure was a pretty sleek and nice looking vehicle.  Of course you would need a pilots license I would think as well as the driver's license although it sounds like the car pretty much flew itself.  Seeing all of those robins must be a sight.  I haven't even seen or heard any geese fly over and the hummingbirds are still eating at the feeder.  No wonder you were worried on 9/11 as you had a loved one who could have been on one of those planes.  Sure glad that wasn't the case.  A suggestion, go to the settings for the Cox mailbox and you should find where you can set it so all of the mail coming to that mailbox can automatically be transferred to your preferred email account.  I have done this for years and have everything sent to my gmail account. 

Amy, I guess Fiskars is really into sharp objects.  Pat does have some Fiskars scissors but we have no need for a hatchet.  Glad you have were able to get your garden ready for winter. Enjoy your baking today today and I hope you don't have to chase down your laundry. 

Lloyd, I can't think of one reason why we would not want you to be posting as you are a valued member of our cyber family.  I hope you can get your laptop hooked up to the wi-fi in your new motor home.  I know the news is depressing but I still want to know what is going on in the world and in my local community.  I try not to sit and think about it or worry about it. 

Jane, so happy for you being able to enjoy Emma as a baby and to have your daughter and granddaughter there as well.  Little Emma is going to be a seasoned traveler.  Our children also were pretty seasoned travelers as they are just 15 months and 30 months old when we moved from Oklahoma City to Anchorage, Alaska.  That was a long, long trip although we did a stop over in Seattle and spent the night with Pat's brother and his wife and that helped.  Your happiness at having them there does radiate from your posting. Now you know most of us are not having as much fun as you are this weekend as most of us are not around those little bundles of joy.  My youngest great grandchild is now 7 years old and we have never seen him in person.  Our oldest great grandson is turning 16 in just a couple of days. 

June, it is certainly encouraging to see you have been able to enjoy two full days of activities and special events.  I hope today also finds you feeling good and that you are up to attending your Senior Health and Wellness Expo.  Where we moved from our Senior Center sponsored those events each year and they were well attended. 

Gloria, good to read you may be feeling a little better this morning.  Thanks for alerting us that you may not post on Monday and Tuesday.

Good Morning Everyone,
from the cool and windy,
rocky coast of Maine.   

(The wind will get me, every time!)

Regarding flying cars??   
Unfortunately,  there are no street, highways and

Can you just imagine thousands of flying cars??
Not me...  Not yet...  Probably never

Good Saturday morning.

I missed getting here yesterday, as I had a busy day. 

One of my "special" nieces picked me up around 10 to go to lunch to celebrate her mother's (my sister-in-law) 93rd birthday.   My niece had called me on Thursday night and insisted that she wanted to pick me up, even tho, she lives about an hour from me.   Another niece was bringing  her mother, another SIL, and they all wanted to surprise the "birthday gal".  After I got picked up, it was  another hour to the restaurant, but it was a beautiful, sunny day and the ride was through some beautiful countryside.  Our foliage hasn't started to change yet, so everything was still a beautiful green.  We passed several big horse farms and lots of plowed fields. 

It turned out to be such a nice day.  My SIL was so surprised as she was not expecting to see me or her other sister.  Several of the schools were closed, so several of her great-grandchildren  were there, along with several other family members. I guess it was about 20 total.   

My niece who picked me up, is one of the sweetest girls and she told me that it was very important to her and to her mother for me to be there.  I live the farthest from most of the rest of my extended family.  We do have a very close family, even tho a lot of them don't live close.  But, we do try to get together whenever we can.  The sister-in-laws are all getting up in years and have various health problems and sometimes it is an effort to get to places.  So, I was really happy that it all turned out so well yesterday.

June, glad you had a nice day at your place.  Sounds like a lot of fun.

Jane, I know you are just really enjoying having little Emma and her family with you.  You are making special memories for all of you.   Times you will look back to and keep enjoying over and over.

It is a pretty sunny day here, but kind of chilly.  I only had to turn the thermostat up for a short time this morning before it had warmed up nicely.  Usually , don't have to turn it up again during the day. 

Gloria, sorry that you are having problems with your shoulder.  Hope  you are feeling better this morning and were able to sleep better,

I have been on the computer too long this morning. DId an on-line order from Walmart and then was on Facebook with my grand daughter.  I need to get off here and get on with some chores.

Hope everyone will have a nice Saturday.

Joy

Good afternoon, rain this AM, but now the sun is shinning about mid 50's

Gloria, I think I have sympathy pain with you in my left shoulder. the last shot I got at the hematologist my shoulder has hurt, they give it very high on the arm almost in the shoulder, maybe she hit a nerve

.Friends, if you get a chance check out Holidays and BD. as Bubble and Patricia have been putting some great graphic in for Halloween.

June good to see you getting about. Last time I had cat fish was at a big fish fry in Ala.

Laundry did stay on the line despite the high winds, got it off the line just as it started to sprinkle out. Baked bread and peanut butter cookies to nibble on. Clipped all three dogs nails, I don't know who it takes the more out of me or the dogs. Two of the dogs behave not too badly but one......shheesh.it sure can be a work out!!!
Going to sit and soak in the hot tub. :)

Jane, hope you are taking lots of photos please..

Amy we had some vicious winds last Thurs. night. I had left my windows open when I went to bed, and the wind rattled my venitian blinds and woke me up, but not before it brought in a lot of dust. My housekeeper really earned her wages this week.

Gloria, it is time for your body to give you some good days, as mine has done lately. I spent four hours downstairs today at our big Health and Wellness program….and now ready to fix a light supper, since I had a huge lunch downstairs. I will just have some cottage cheese and canned fruit and get ready for book and bed. Our weather has been like a second summer lately, I even had my A/C on today..They were giving free shots to the public at our program today, but I already had mine. My doctor has me taking a can of Gatorade each day now, and it has really given me more energy…..better than more pills.

Larry, we got up to 90 today….I can do without that, but no one asked me. Our Wellness program is a yearly thing and always very well attended. I even  had a free back massage today……ooooo….so nice. I took one of their cards, in hopes they make house calls.  I daily massage my legs and arms, because of my P.A.D. illness but unfortunately my arms are too short to reach my back.

Past time to fix my light supper, so I will bid you all a very Good Night, with much Love, Prayers, and Peace, always and forever..June

Been a roller coaster few days.... I drove about 300 miles today & ended up back home.  Started to go to the lake to have only a 35 mile drive to my "cousin reunion" which is tomorrow.  Yesterday my oldest son finally gave up & told his doctor "something had to be done".  He has felt bad for weeks, thought it was reaction to the flu shot.  We've all worried because the doctor he goes to never did get the infection in his leg/blood stream cured & told him that "he'd just have to live with it like that the rest of his life".  It is swollen, skin so thin it looks like it could pop & Dr said "the lymph nodes in his legs are dead"....2 years & still looks the same and the stupid doctor never did use the strongest meds or shots to cure it.  NOW, today, they ran a scope down his throat to look at his heart & think there is valve damage & going to need to replace it!!!  I was about 2/3 way to destination when I called back & heard this news (he did not want Mom to be there)..... The infection is in or around his heart so why would a doctor use a scope down the throat to swish that infection all around?  Is that common sense?  An echocardiogram is NOT invasive & would have shown the same detail.  Now this doctor is talking about a heart cath & for sure, I will be asking another cardiologist if this is wise while the infection is still all through his body.....

My biggest concern is the doctor that has messed up so badly is picking the doctors that are now going to "cover up" for him.  I am beside myself, just told my daughter "if they don't pick the doctor doing the surgery they might as well hand the knife to the janitor".... He will listen to her, but Andy's wife likes their doctor so am concerned she will let him have the last word.... he's just a family doctor... I'm repeating myself & need to go eat & get some sleep, not been a great day.  I'm okay, under control & will not do anything to upset the kids, (but "heaven help that doctor if he tries to cover up his neglect to me".....)  I have blown my lid, thanks for listening.....  not one of my better moments.

SHIRLEY, prayers on the way for your son.  I hear the baby waking and I'm off to church in a few minutes.  Taking your son along for the prayer list.

Good morning g everyone...

Shirley, I would be asking for another Dr also. Some Dr;s like to think they are God but as we know they is only ONE God. Prayers for your and you. That is the first time I have heard that someone has to live with an infection..


June, we have high winds again today. The power is to be off from 8 am to 3 pm  to make it better for us in the long run. So they say! With the winds so high I wonder if Hydro will follow through on their planned outage?


We are off to the city for a 12.pm appointment at Costco for new tires today. I didn't realize that the garage part was open on a Sunday but it is. While there we will pick up a few things and some for our neighbour. We are meeting a lady from quilting and I will pass over the last of the camp quilts to her. Also giving her the sleeves from hot drinks at Tims to make cat toys with along with crinkly pieces of bags from cereal etc to make cat  toys.


Joy, that was a nice surprise for both you (being driven by your  niece) and your  SIL.




Enjoy your day everyone..

Hi Everyone. It is a cool and crisp but sunny 55 degree morning here and we are headed only to the low 60's this afternoon.  I just finished fixing Pat's breakfast and finishing up the kitchen chores and have only a few minutes before I will need to leave for Sunday School.  I think Pat will want me to come and get her for Church this morning and then we will go out to eat afterwards.  I did get to my meeting and then went to Costco, along with a lot of other people it seemed.  I am looking forward to watching some football this afternoon and that will be it for today.

I will make only limited comments today as see others have pretty much said what I would likely have written and I am running out of time before I have to leave the house.

Sandy, the flying cars are not for me either and it will surely be a long time before they are available although I thought the same about electric cars and they are here to stay.

Shirley, so sorry to read of the problems your son is experiencing and it sounds like he needs to seek the help of some different doctors.  Sorry your trip had to be interrupted but life interferes with our plans sometimes.  Like Amy I can't image a doctor saying a person will just have to live with an infection.

Good morning everyone, raining now but should be sunny this afternoon. For the first time I just heard the weatherman talk about wind chill this fall. Also a freeze warning tonight. Just hope it is not raining tomorrow and Tuesday because I have to go out both days.

LARRY  my grandson did something on my computer that has all my email come in on the gmail, I like it that way. Of course I do not get all the email I got when I was in the different PSP groups. I miss PSP but for some reason it will not install anymore. I am wondering if the disk drive is not working right.

JOY  foliage here iss lat e this year, not  too much color yet and this should be the peak of it now. About 6 years ago I was ready to have the left shoulder replaced but the insurance I had dropped the group the doctor was in and I could not afford to pay for it. Had the right one replaced 7 years ago.

GLORIA de  last time I had a shot in my back the doctor hit a nerve at my spine and paid no attention to it. Bubble and Patricia do some wonderful creations all year. Makes me jealous because I miss doing what they do.

JUNE  glad the  Gatorade helps you. My oldest son drinks it, too. I cannot, makes me sick. My CNA massages my back and it feels so good.

SHIRLEY  I wonder if some of the doctors these days are quacks. Like the one I had for 10 years, swear he got his diploma online. I will add your son to my prayers, you, too.

Have a good day.
