    7/31/2015 2:05:09 PM, by MCJULIEO

    Summary of what life is like in Texas right now: It's HOT! But not as hot as it has been in the past! But there's plenty to keep us amused: Somebody is making a documentary on Molly Ivins, the late Texas veteran political pundit, who made us laugh, even when we didn't agree with her viewpoint...

  • 28 days into widowhood

    7/30/2015 7:50:08 PM, by KAREN608

    How is that for a title? Scary to type, yet I am keeping so busy, I do not think the reality has set in fully yet. I am boxing up possessions for a short move into town. Culling things as I go, smiling a bit when I find something that brings me joy. Crying at some photos. Even embarrassed ... Read more

    7/28/2015 3:29:32 PM, by MCJULIEO

    I did NOT want to get out and swim laps this morning....My excuses included: I wouldn't have time to get a full mile in, much less my goal of two miles.... my breakfast oatmeal was too hot and needed cooling...

    7/27/2015 11:56:22 PM, by MCJULIEO

    Salmon was on sale at the local HEB, and I bought a large filet to bake in the oven, and since I was going to bake at 425 degrees anyway, I chopped up a huge amount of carrots, onions, peppers, calabacita squash, and celery to roast at the same time so as to make the most from the kitchen being heat...

    7/21/2015 7:52:03 AM, by CHERYLHURT

    Took the tandem out about 5 miles into the back hills and roads of gorgeous upstate South Carolina when suddenly the chain jumped the derailleur while shifting, which torqued the back chain, bent the derailleur, and brought the tandem to a screeching halt. We couldn't pedal AT ALL which meant we WA... Read more

  • I need a device hubby can use for music.

    7/21/2015 6:29:14 AM, by CTUPTON

    I see people all the time with a small device for music--with earphones. At the health club people wear them on their arm. Hubby has use of only one hand and arm (stroke in 2006). What would be the very easiest device for him to use? I guess I or someone would have to load songs... Read more

    Slept almost 10 hours last night!
