My three-year-old daughter stuck out her hand and said, “Look at the fly I killed, Mommy.” Since she was eating a juicy pickle at the time,
I thrust her contaminated hands under the faucet and washed them with antibacterial soap.
After sitting her down to finish her pickle, I asked, with a touch of awe, “How did you kill that fly all by yourself?”
Between bites, she said, “I hit it with my pickle.”

Hi everyone. It is another beautiful and sunny Sunday morning here in South Carolina and our temperatures are only to get to the mid-80's today.  I expect this to be our typical Sunday except we will not go out to lunch after Sunday School and Church.  We have some left-overs in the refrigerator that need to be eaten so will just come home and have lunch.  After resting awhile this afternoon I will probably watch a little football and keep my eye on the golf match.

Sandy, I have a great app on my smart phone that measures my blood pressure and blood oxygen.  It is certainly much easier than the arm cuff and is always with me.  Fortunately I have always had very low blood pressure but have to be sure it doesn't get too low. 

Gloria, glad your light situation didn't last too long.  I don't blame folks for avoiding the elevator until the lights on steady again.  Did anyone get trapped in the elevator? Glad Jose has decided to leave your area.  Glad you have good health insurance and are happy with it. 

Callie, your planting sound beautiful.  I am going to no longer try to keep any outside plants and flowers growing.  I finally, after several weeks, did get my artificial flowers fixed on my front porch.  It at least makes it look like someone lives here.  Pat is going to get some fall artificial flowers to replace what I have out there now. 

Hal, that was a terrible earthquake and as of last night they were still looking for survivors.

Carol, I also like Il Divo and there are some other wonderful Irish Tenor singers and groups.  For some reason fixing my two weeks worth of pills in the special boxes is something I have never enjoyed doing and it seems that chore comes around so often.   

Mary Ann, I was watching when the wardrobe malfunction occurred.  Not a serious matter but probably was a bit embarrassing for the golfer.  There is a lot of money involved in the match this week.  I read that the Fed EX Cup total purse is $35 million with the winner getting $10 of it and the rest split among other players.  No wonder the players work so hard to be eligible to play in that tournament. 

Amy, it sounds like you marked off a number of things from your list yesterday.

JeanneP, I found our current housekeeper by asking my friends and one of the men highly recommended this lady.  It was a good recommendation. 

Shirley, it sounds like your motor home made the trip without new problems this time.  I understand having the pacemaker fire is not a pleasant experience.  Fortunately I have never experienced it and I am on my second pacemaker/defibrillator.

Jane, I agree with Joy and hope you treat yourself to the new bathrobe.  You deserve it.  It sounds like you are feeling much better.

June, hope you felt up to going to the Chapel service today. 

Lloyd, being a bit "Dutchy" is probably what has kept you going through all of the hard things you have experienced over the years.

Bubble, thanks for starting us with a fresh to continue our conversations.  I loved the little humor you shared and am sharing it with my family.

Good Morning,

Thank you, Bubble,  for helping with our Soda Shoppe Site.   You picked a beautiful way to start us out.

Just stopping in to pay my debt to Hal,   :-*   for the TCU beating OKState.
Now he owes me for OU beating Baylor.
 ;D

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere an Enjoyable Day.

Good morning everyone, going up to the mid 80's today. This is the end of September isn't it,  not July?

CALLIE   your mums sound beautiful, the colors say fall to me. No trees changing color yet here yet. When I first bought mums to plant in the yard I got 12 of them for $10.- I bet you paid a lot more for yours. I plnted them beside a walk and could be seen from the street and really all the colors blended togeather.

CAROL  wonder if a Swiffer could be used for the cei;ing and walls. Then again I can no longer raise my arms like that and the help I get is not allowed to.

SHIRLEY  an inground pool in more trouble than an above ground one.Yours is way more trouble than it is worth especially since no one ever swims in it.

HAL  will watch your link later. That jerk who hit that nerve by my spine has made my left leg weak.

JANE  maybe you should ask family to return the jars if they want a refill the next year. Those canning jars get more expensive every year it seems.  I first bought a box of quart jars for 36 cents.

LLOYD  isn't Bob the one who went to the hurricane are to help? He sure will be happy to get home.

JEANNE LEE  thanks.

BUBBLE  THANKS A BUNCH.

LARRY  no one dared use the elevator from this floor and never heard of anyone downstairs trying. I only have a 1 week pill box and even then it is a chore I dislike doing even though it is easy and really only takes a few minutes.

Been at the post for more than 2 hours so think I better close.

Gloria,  the trees along the creek behind my fence are still green but look very dry (no rain).  Unless we get some really cold temperatures they'll probably just dry up and blow off. 
 
I paid $1.99 each for 6" pots of the mums at Home Depot.  Probably would have been higher at one of the local nurseries.
I never put mums in the ground because the root balls spread like crazy and are almost impossible to pull out.  Doing so in the planters is hard enough - usually takes out all the soil, too.
I won't be planting anything else there until next year.  Lots of folks here put out pansies in the Fall but I don't have any luck doing so.  Next planting time for them  is February.

Just checking in, as I join every one else to saying it is hot, for this time of the year.

Thank you Bubble, for taking up our get togethers. , so we can keep this page going till Joan gets back

this is just a quick note as I am waiting for my friend Cathy, from the other side of the park.  she just called and wants to take me to lunch.  Have not been out in a week.  I am surprised she wanted to go out on a Sunday. Take care everyone.

Baylor gave OU a tussle.

HAL  will watch your link later. That jerk who hit that nerve by my spine has made my left leg weak.

My doctor came in to talk to me about the very thing you mentioned.  He showed me where he was going to burn, the nerves, and also showed me the nerves that control the up/down on the legs and said they stay away from them.  So far things are going well.  Pain is very much diminished, just some soreness, which I was told would occur.  I even stood in church this morning during musical worship.  I haven't done that in a long time.

Callie, pansies can be hard to plant to keep from killing them, well for me anyhow.  I always get the crown down to far in the dirt.  It is almost too warm in winter here for them anyhow.  But they sure have some pretty ones anymore.

Bubble, thank you for filling in.  Your a sweetheart.

Bubble, I thank you for stepping in to help our gallant Jeanne Lee out. She has been so great in keeping us all together, in spite of her own ill health. This place means so much to so many of us who would be  lonely without one another. To me it really should be a two or three person job, as most of us are not that well anymore, so I am truly thankful for what you are doing

Hal, I am so glad you had this procedure done and that it has turned out so well for you. The medical people keep progressing with successful  testing and your people sound like they have done well. Being free from pain for even less than eight months would be wonderful. I wish you the very best my friend.

I am so happy that I was able to attend Chapel today. Dr. Wm. Pennell was our speaker, and he was excellent. He has been here in the past, but this was a first for me. I came home really tired, so I am "in" for the day. Hoping I will get a necessary order placed with my delivery folks. Time now to fix some lunch, since I don't feel up to socializing downstairs. Food and Nap are awaiting me. see you later dear hearts. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.

My day was pretty much of nothing but snacking and reading. Just too lazy do do any ordering,or anything else worth while. So I will finish the day doing nothing worth while. I'm thankful we have Bubble helping us out, but we must remember it takes all of us . May God grant us the sensibilities to do what is right and proper. I love you all. I pray you have a peaceful night, and a really great tomorrow. Hugs, Love and more prayers. June

Thank you, BUBBLE, for a nice new SS to gather in.  I loved your graphic and chuckled with a bit of a frown at your cute joke. 

Thank you, HAL, for the video of the procedure you had done.  It was very interesting and I certainly hope you will have many months to be pain free. 

GLORIA de, the snapping turtles FINALLY hatched at my son's home in Boston today.  It took 102 days and there were 39 of them.  The grandson's were most excited to experience this from start to finish!  I told Son Kurt he might want to keep his revolver handy just in case they all emerge one day and head off after the boys!  He agreed, remembering your story that you shared.  I hope you enjoyed your lunch out today. 

We had quite the storm yesterday afternoon down toward Colorado Springs.  Dr. Dave and Family have season tickets to the Air Force Academy Games.  Granddaughter Kate was to cheer at half time....well the wind and the rain was just terrible, so everyone got soaked at their tailgate party and there were only a hand full of fans in the stands.  The game was stopped for one hour due to lightening in the vicinity.  No cheering allowed of course....in fact there was no half time at all, due to the delay. 

The rain and cool temps continued today and will stick around most of the week.  We even turned on the furnace this morning and it was on all day.  Burrrr, I am still chilly. 

I have been really on edge all day long due to the blatant disrespect shown by many today for our flag and National Anthem. 

Pleasant dreams to all.

Good morning everyone...

Going to be another hot day here but it looks as though Wed will bring us much needed rain. We are off to our Dr this morning, then head back home. I was thinking of cutting the grass but we will see how that goes . Both dogs are laying flat out on the cool floor,tummies full and they have been out for a bit.

I had better get a move on here.
Take care everyone and enjoy your day.

Good morning Everyfriend.  We had a cool night here, good for sleeping, and today won't be as hot as yesterday.  I actually had the a/c on for part of the day yesterday.  It got up to 93.  We are supposed to have temps in the the mid to high 80s for the next couple of days and then down into the mid to high 70s for a week.  Fall is on the way!

My sister and BIL will be here later today.  Brother will hang around town, maybe visit with a friend and my sis and I will make a trip together to the chiropractor.  Depending on how tired he is when we get back, they will either go home early evening or spend the night and leave early a.m.  Either way, I get a nice visit with my sis.

BUBBLE, and my thanks to you for standing in for our JOAN.  Seems we need a coordinator to keep us together but I sure hope you kept on Eloise and Verna to clean the place and serve.  We've become used to them.  ;D

I better go get my shower and get dressed so I'm decent when my sis arrives.  Enjoy your day Everyfriend and make it a good one.

Good morning to all the early friends.....

Another beautiful morning.  Yesterday it got up to 90 º down in the city, but out where I live it was a beautiful breeze all afternoon and probably was in the mid 80's.  These kind of days sure aren't going to last much longer.  Supposed to be only in the low 70's by the end of the week.  That is ok, as long as the sun is shining.  I did get to sit outside for a while.  When I first went out, it was only 2 other ladies sitting out, but eventually several more showed up.  Nice to do a little chit-chat about nothing that important.

I did finally get around to doing some laundry yesterday evening.  Still have more to do sometime later this week. 

Not sure what is happening today.   Get the kitchen cleaned up a little bit and empty the dishwasher.  And, I am sure a nap will happen at some point in the day. 

Jane, I am sure  you will enjoy your visit with your sister,  even tho part of it will be spent at the chiropractor.  And, then enjoy the rest of the evening with your brother-in-law. 

Whatever all the others plan to do today, I hope it will turn out to be a good one.

Good Morning Everyone!

Well I haven't stuck my nose out so I don't know what the weather is like.  Warm and sticky I am pretty sure.  We are suppose to have some rain this week and a cool front come through, but we shall see.  We got sprinkles yesterday but not real rain.

About the football players and their disrespect, I ask the family yesterday what they, the football players, were so upset about and you know no one could really answer, one of them finally said he thought it was over all the police shootings but you know honestly I don't know what their problem is. Other than some of them don't like Trump.  I would find it a little hard to disrespect a country that gave me the opportunity to make millions of dollars.

Our cleaning lady is coming this morning and get things all spic and span.  She cleans here in the morning and then moves over to my daughters this afternoon and does her house.  We all gathered there last night for a shrimp boil and then strawberry shortcake for dessert.  Hmmmmm, good!

Hope everyone has a great day.

Hi everyone. The forecast is for partly cloudy all day long with a high in the upper 80's.  I expect to enjoy a very quiet day as have nothing on my calendar.  I am sure I will find something to keep me busy today.  We enjoyed attending our Sunday School class yesterday and then had a fine Church service. 

I was very saddened yesterday evening when I read of the man attacking the church service in Nashville, killing one and injuring several others. 

Hal, nice to see that your back is feeling better and you were feeling energetic yesterday.  Hope that feeling continues for you today. 

Lloyd,  your friend Bob did a great thing in going to help those in need.

Gloria, wouldn't one of your sons wipe down your walls for you especially if you had a Swiffer to use?  I use two one-week pill boxes so I don't have to perform that chore weekly. 

Callie, it sounds like you have extensive gardening knowledge. 

deAngel, hope you had an enjoyable lunch with Cathy and that it didn't tire you too much. 

June, nothing wrong with having "do nothing" days when that is what is called for. 

Jenny, were the snapping turtles hatched in an aquarium or was this something that occurred outside?  Why was no cheering allowed at the game?  It is indeed a shame when are American citizens have no respect for the flag and the National Anthem.  There have been many lives sacrificed so these sports figures could enjoy the freedom in our country and have the high paying jobs in sports they have.  However, I do believe they have the right to do what they are doing under our Constitution. 

Amy, you all are sure keeping your doctors busy.  I guess that goes with the aging that is occurring for all of us at this stage of our lives. 

Jane, nice you will have time to visit with your sister today.  You were a lot warmer than we were yesterday as we stayed in the mid-80's.

Good morning everyone, it was another AC day and night, hard to believe it is the last week of September here. People still going to the beach even is the ocean water is cooler now. My older son came yesterday with a bag of apples and one of tomatoes.  5 huge ones. will blanche them and then cook them down for sauce. Hope to peel some of the apples and make an apple crisp.

CALLIE  the area I planted the mums had a lot of room so if they spread I did not mind. In the fall after a killing frost I would cuth them back to the ground and cover with a thick layer of peatmoss to protect them over the cold winter. When they came up in the spring I had to keep trimming them till they filled out again.

Just heard on TV that in a town in Mass. that someone found a bag in a river with some puppies tied into it. A boater found it and now the SPCA has the pups and they are OK, their eyes are still closed so they were just about new born. Now they want to find who did that. Terrible.

GLORIA de  nice surprise from your friend, always great to get away from home for a few hours.

HAL  since I last went to that poor excuse of a pain doctor I found out he is in politics. Must have beem thinking about being elected. What got me is that when my leg jumped off the table and I told him he did it a second time.

LLOYD  I think all those who go to help in times of disasters deserve applause and hesrt felt thanks. Between the hurricanes and then the earthquakes in Mexico makes one wonder what is going on. God telling us to behave and get along with everyone?

JUNE  BUBBLE  was a big help to many when S&F opened. She is a wonderful friend.

JENNY  hard to picture turtles in Boston. Is he right in the city or one of the towns around it? Been many years since I was last there.

AMY  it will be in the 80's here till Thursday when rain is in the forecast and then the high is to be in the 60's.

JANE  how lucky you are to spend time with your sister and BIL. Coming from a big family I am the last one left.

LARRY  I could ask my sons but one is still working all the time and the other though retired is busy all the time. He and my DIL baby sit their grandson a few days a week, a joy for them. Then I always hate to ask for help.

Gloria:  I think you should make a short list of what you would like help with and I just don't think the children think about issues with aging.  They wouldn't want you climbing at ladder so let them know your needs. 

Jenny:  I am all for freedom of expression even if it is distasteful to my mind.  Can you imagine what would happen to these kind of issues in North Korea, even Russia?

Lloyd, I know how you feel about going "home" to the Lord. I had those thoughts this morning. But it is not our choice to make. As long as we are here God has something He wants us to do, and so we wait.

One day at a time. We have so much to be thankful for. Those crazy football players only want attention...like mean little kids that act up so they will be noticed. They have been so Blessed in having the good fortune to "make it" in their chosen profession, but it is never enough...they want MORE.. One day God will say..."no more", you used it all up.

Bubble, I thank you for stepping in where you are so needed.I thank you dear friend more that words can say. God be with you.

Time for me to go downstairs for lunch and then "hopefully" home to send off a grocery order that I keep neglecting. Keep the Faith kids !!!!!!!
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Good day to ALL. 

LARRY & GLORIA, my son lives on an acreage in a suburb of Boston.  102 days ago they watches this BIG snapping turtle come from a pond on the property to lay eggs in a rose garden by their home.  They could tell there were a LOT of eggs in the hole she dug.  Kurt looked up on the internet and found that it is to take 90 plus days for them to hatch so they have been watching the calendar.  After 100 days they thought sure that something went wrong and pretty much gave up on seeing the turtles hatch.  They yesterday, low and behold here come one, two, three......a total of 39 of them, all headed for the pond as fast as they could go.  Quite a expierance to say the least. 

Still dreary around here today.....but the rain has stopped.  I hope the sun will come out and stay out soon as I could really need use some brightness! 

Thank you all who commented on the kneeling, etc. issues.  I just feel so sad that our world is in such turmoil these days. 

Holding on to my positive thoughts and prayers that Our Joan is getting stronger each and every day so she can come back and be with us.....garsh, I sure miss her.

Enjoy your day EVERYFRIEND!

Larry. Never heard of the App to put on Iphone for BP.. It that the only thing it works on. Not on IPads or any other type phone. or Tablets.  I have bought two of the machines at $60 and both stop working fast.  They use the wrist at the Dr. Building. Say 4 pct.  of what they buy don't work but good when they do.  I like the older one fixed on the wall.
94 deg again today. Think I will have more energy when it cools down.
I was in this morning early get blood taken for my yearly physical.  Nice lady in charge of that dept and I was telling her about trying to fine a house cleaner. She thinks could find someone, she will check but also would like to take the job herself and she just works 7:30am to 12:30pm 5 days a week and could use more money. Feeling good about that.

My sis and BIL have gone and I'm just waiting for a text message telling me they are home safe.

AND MY bLOOD PRESSURE IS DOWN TO 127!  I remember telling my daughter once that my way of relieving stress was to go in the kitchen and cook something.  Since they took my bp on Friday and it was 187 I've made and canned 5 pints of salsa, made mustard, a batch of dog food, a casserole from a new recipe and a couple of other small items.  Does tha prove that cooking is a stress reliever for me....or what?

I still think I should have become a chef!

JaneS if the # you post are the top # one is not bad at all for top # (example)
150 over 80 would be great. I have to take one Pill for B P  and watch what i eat. when I do I keep mine around  (100 over 80) pretty good. one thing I love
and can't eat but very few of, is those being cherries (seedless one's) with the
steams to hold and bight off. 6 or 8 of them will take your b s to 180 190 in a
heartbeat. time to bid everyone good night and sweet dreams.

Lloyd

Oh yes if you do not have a blood sugar tester bight the bullet and get one and use it.
