Chucky, hi, in the 90's here too. predicting 94 for Saturday.

I have had the boys since 6:45 this morning and I have them until around 8:15 pm. I took them to the pool at 4 but by 4:10 there was thunder in the area and we had to evacuate. Donovan was asked to go back with his friends, so he got to go back. It's too much work with the baby with the sunscreen, swim diaper, swim trunks and swim shirt.

Davis went to zumba with me this morning. He wasn't having it and I had to hold him most of the time. I got in cardio and weights at the same time. He weights about 23-26 lbs.

My daughter got a baby kitten yesterday. A couple of kids found them on the way to school and put them in their backpack and then to school. I went over to check on her this afternoon and Davis spilled out the kitten's special milk and water. I put him in his crib to clean up and I hear a thud. He climbed out of his crib. He cried and was okay when I held him. Oh boy, that's going to be a problem.

Pat.

Another hot one today supposed to be in the low nineties but there is a breeze out there so it makes things a little more bearable. Did my run/walk yesterday 5.11 miles getting ready to head out again today. Ladies have a great day.....Chuck.

It was a splash park and pool day today. Davis to the splash park in the am and Donovan to the pool in the pm. Totally beat.

Hi everybody. Peter's caregivers will be coming over for dinner tonight. I was going to cook the entire meal with both my helpers but they insisted on contributing so I finally got them to agree on a salad and a desert, especially since I am very bad at deserts. I usually serve fruits and both my kids did not have desert at the end of every meal except when we were all away on family holidays and if we went to someone's house for dinner.

Remember the lady with the cancer. The reason her chemo is only starting in September is because she wanted to be completely healed after the operation she went through when they removed some of her lymph nodes. From Stage 1, the doctors have now assessed her as Stage 3 as 13 of her 24 nodes were cancerous and they have to treat this as having gone through metastasis. She has faith in her Lord, she told me, and plans to gorge on food to get her self all plumped up and ready for chemo. So taken aback by her courage!

Speak to all of you tomorrow.

Beeeeg Hugs, Prema

Prema, the grandmother is having fits about the visitation. She has contacted all state agencies saying that the sex offenders have more rights than law abiding citizens. You are right about me and Kathy 1, two peas in a pod.

Hi Pat. Hey, psssst...Kathy knows that we know that she cannot keep still and that we will both come back with a resounding "I told you so" ....and you are sooooo right...bra or no bra. Why am I even telling you this?? You are just as bad as she is - you were zumba-ing, grandchildren-sitting, renovating....when your knee was under observation!! You, my dear kawan, are just as bad as Kathy 1. Two peas in a pod.

By the way, what does it mean to label a guy as a sex offender and then allow him unsupervised visits to his 8 year old? Do they think a sex offender who is also a father will know how to separate his roles when it comes to his own child. Weird!!!
And yes, Pat, I do remember the neighbour you were talking about? Well ladies, we can only pray for those who get in and stay in abusive relationship...what else can we do?

Hi Chucky, JoAnn, Kathy2 and Ei...hope all of you have a good start to the week.

Beeeeg Hugs, Prema

PS Kathy1 - do they have cling wraps with the face of your favourite actor - imagine being able to say "I have him wrapped around my arm" emoticon

Prema, Kathy isn't allowing bets, so I guess we will just have to sit back and see. No money, but I'm thinking that moving furniture and mowing will begin in a week, bra or no bra. LOL

Kathy, my neighbor was in an abusive relationship with a man she was married to for 10 years. She has been dating a new guy for the past 8 months. Her husband was a cheater and his mom helped him lie. He's the guy I was telling you about last year that was caught trying to meet up with young girls on line. Fortunately his last attempt (hopefully) was with an undercover cop. Now he has to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years. Starting Jan 1st, 2015, he will be able to have unsupervised visits with his 8 year old daughter. Scary.

I mowed today (Kathy, I know you are jealous) before it got too hot. Now it is almost 90.

Went for my walk this morning--nice breeze, not hot yet. Of course, the bread wrapper/plastic wrap to cover my arm so I could shower was a sight to behold!! emoticon

My niece invited me and her parents for dinner this evening. Brother and sil will transport me. She lives with Jim (for a few months now), and I'm wondering if there's an announcement coming. Unfortunately, after living in an abusive marriage for 20+ years, she seems to feel she can't live without a man. That's caused her to make some bad choices/decisions. She has a MSW degree. I don't mean to seem judgmental, but she is so capable yet so insecure.

We'll have no money changing hands over my upcoming tasks or the timeline, kawan-kawan.

Have a blessed day!!

Kathy 1

Pat, shall we take a small bet here as to when our Kathy will get back to mowing and moving furniture around again. If just fastening her bra was as painful as she described, can you imagine her threshold for pain... I have a feeling that both of you have set limits that no man or woman alive will venture to repeat!!!

This morning was lovely and I was out there for 90 minutes. It would have been less if my spirit had won over my body. Spirit said " keep running - do not walk" but body said "you idiot - what do you think you are doing to my 56 year old being". Body won after 5km and I walked the rest of the way. Briskly...but I still walked!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my dear kawan-kawan.

Beeeeeg Hugs, Prema

Kathy, I hope you get off the meds soon and can resume normal activities, such as moving furniture, mowing the lawn, etc. I guess you don't realize how much you use your hands until one becomes disabled. I wish you well.

George Clooney with his intended? How much fun is that?

Child-proof meds are a real challenge with one working hand--so are water bottles!! Bras?? We don't have to go there. I had a good night. I have to work on bending/straightening the finger. I want to go walk, but the pain meds make me a bit light-headed. I'm going to try to get dressed now--guess that will be my workout for the day. emoticon

Hi Ei. Seems like you went through enough and deserve to have George Clooney and his intended drop by and be with you at the fitness place. You have a lot of spunk Ei and as far as exercising is concerned, Pat is right. You are definitely on the right track.

Hey Pat, I am already on Friday. So, have a good weekend, my kawan.

Kathy1, prayers, prayers and more prayers across the many miles for your intended surgery.

Beeeg Hugs, Prema

Hi ladies. I am way behind in catching up with the posts. I do hope all are well. Thanks Prema.
It was actually a blessing that my friend passed away. She sure will be missed but she put up a good fight, but she did suffer for three months. She is finally at peace.
Kathy1 all the best to you with your finger surgery. I hope all goes well and you heel quickly. emoticon
The news on TV is so depressing with all that has been going on. I try not to watch too much of it. emoticon
Both of our weddings went off well and the weather was perfect. We had a great time too. (-:
Two of my grandkids started school today. The other little guy starts next week on the 27th.
Seems like Summer went too fast. We had so much rain here and not many warm days.
Been at the Rec center twice a week for 60 minute Silver Sneakers classes and am enjoying
those. Then My Fitness after Fifty, is a cardio, complete body workout, so great, is twice a
week. I love the name to. Hope George Clooney stops in as a surprise guest. emoticon I try to do a 15-30 minute walk or workout in between to keep motivated. Takes much
time, but I need to be determined.
Well, off to read my book. Have a nice evening. Enjoy the weekend ahead. I will hope to
get back on here soon. My life has just gotten too busy, I think. God bless. emoticon
hugs, Irish Ei

Prema, we are currently experiencing thunderstorms. I think that gives Davis extra energy. He has no intentions on going down for a nap. Maybe a little later.

Kathy, tomorrow is surgery day, right? Best of luck to you.

I waved the last kid goodbye yesterday and today, I saw on facebook, that all of them are thinking of coming back here again for holidays and another round of eating!! I have no idea whether to be thrilled or worried???

The weather here has been a little haphazard. We have had heavy rains - literally thunderstorms- at night and this reduces the temperatures somewhat and a morning run the next day is absolutely heavenly. It's wonderful to see blue skies and white clouds again. However, the traffic jams are a nightmare if the rains come around in the evening just before we knock off from work.

Kathy1, please keep us posted about the surgery. Prayers all the way for you.

Pat, thank you for your thoughts on the victims. But I do not believe the perpetrators will be brought to justice quickly. However, I do believe that justice, even though delayed, will never ever be denied.

Take care, ladies. Beeeeeg Hugs, Prema

School here has been in session for a week already--seems to start earlier every year. I need to get the back mowed either this evening or tomorrow evening...won't be able to do it for a week or so after the surgery.

Nolan's sleeping--been a bit out of sorts today, unusual for him. He is so much like his daddy was, but he's bigger. I miss Stella. I haven't seen her since last Thursday. I called to go by and see her Saturday after book club, but she was out shopping with her other grandma. They didn't go to church on Sunday, so I didn't see her then either.

I didn't go for my walk this morning because I woke up too late to go and get back in time for Nolan's arrival. It's hot, so I may just spend some time on my Gazelle...air conditioning included.

Prema, there is always a survivor complex when family dies tragically and you survive to mourn. I feel for the poor women that lost so much. As for your day of mourning, that is a much deserved day. I hope the families find peace and the perpetrators are brought to justice quickly.

Kathy, no sense in burning yourself out mowing the grass. It it's too hot to mow, then it's too hot for the grass to grow. We are expecting rain here today, but looking out the window, I see nothing but sunshine.

First day of school. Yippee.

Hi Kathy1, good to hear from you. I was getting a little worried. And please don't feel obliged to respond to any emails from me...every now and then, I will send these out and there is no need to respond. No earthquake here in Malaysia but we have declared a day of mourning on 22nd August when our government representatives land in Malaysia with some 20-odd bodies from the MH17 incident. One lady lost her daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren and it was heart-rending to hear her ask herself over and over again, why God chose her to live and take her entire family away.

Pat, yes the loser will not leave until we actually run over him and steam roller him into the ground. He has a very good deal going for him. So why leave??? I hope you had a fab birthday and that the men in your life made you feel extra extra special.

My boss's father-in-law is not doing well at all. The man does not want to go to the hospital and be set up on a drip; he has had it with hospitals. So the doctor got the hospice people to go over and put a morphine and pain killer patch on him and to set up the drip at home for him. This is going to be a challenge - and I need to be prepared to take on more from my boss as he helps his wife manage and cope with this. Cancer sucks!!

Take care everybody. Beeeg Hugs, Prema

Pat, happy belated birthday. I have a casino fairly close but have never been.

I mowed the front yesterday, but it got too hot too fast and I opted to put the mower up for another day. Unless it cools a lot, I won't do the side this evening either. The most recent report is that another Oklahoma earthquake rattled Kansas in the early morning hours. Though I confess I didn't feel the earth move, I did wake about the same time it hit...I wonder?

I have to go for blood work and an EKG in the morning--my pre-op stuff.

So much unrest in Ferguson,MO. It baffles me how anyone figures looting the stores in your community is productive. I'd relocate my store so fast!! It only hurts the community further.

Thanks Prema and yes, you are probably asking for too much. The loser will never leave, too much of a good thing, I guess. Yes, I took my parents to the casinos, twice to one and once to the other. Both are a short drive from my house.

Hiya Pat.. Happy, happy. happy birthday my dear kawan. May you have good health, much happiness and loads of money (hey, this never hurt!!) in the coming year. May your daughter lose her loser boyfriend and may you go further down the One-derland and hit your target weight before Thanksgiving this year...am I too greedy here? Will I be struck by lightning soon?

Hope you had a good time at your party. How wonderful to have your parents there too? Did they end up going to the casino at all??

I had a good run and walked the last lap yesterday. I am getting lazy. After jogging for 4 km, I now tell myself SP says even a walk is good enough and then I walk. Briskly, no doubt. But I still walk. And I make it easier for myself by telling the weak "me" that I can only enjoy the sights and sounds of birds if I walk. Next week, I will try harder. Much harder. Will let you all know how this pans out.

Have a good week Kathy1, Pat, JoAnn, Chucky, Ei,and Kathy2.

Beeeeeeg Hugs, Prema

Hi ladies...I was a full-time chef this weekend for a bunch of very hungry boys who finished everything on the table. One left on Friday; another left yesterday and another one on Wednesday. I have to admit that it was a lot of fun having them around...well brought up boys who took equal responsibility with my son over finances, etc etc during their holiday period.

Pat, I am glad that Donovan is feeling better...and this is one problem I do not face as much now...sick boys...only sick young men who do as they are told because they are all well brought up!!!! I envy the metabolic rate of youth!!!

Kathy 1, I hope Stella is just experiencing growning pains. Yeah on the new freezer. Will you be freezing some fresh fruits and veggies for the winter?

Prema, Donovan was feeling fine by 4:00 pm yesterday. Good thing because besides the bowling, he has a birthday party at the pool for a friend. I have to bring him because his mom has other plans.

I went to the doctor's today and my sugars were fine. She is not concerned about my numbers and doesn't need to see me for another 3 months.

I have a lot of housework to get to after the party tonight because my parents are coming to town tomorrow.

Hi ladies.

Ei, I am sorry for your loss. It's always hard to lose a friend to illness and we have all gone through this in our lifetime. Our collective shoulders are there for you. By the way, I like the sound of your class "Fitness After 50" - we could ask for some good looking people like George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Daniel Day-Lewis etc etc to come by once in a while to give us motivation to continue our exercise!!!

Pat, I hope Donovan gets better soon so that he can enjoy his bowling and I like the fact that Davis is big on ecology. You have a good weekend replenishing your energy for the weekend, kawan..

Kathy1, you tried to slip the surgery bit in quietly and you hoped we would not notice it?? No way, my kawan...so what happened? Nolan - a lady killer with just a smile and Princess Stella making hearts melt...great combination, grandma...you are going to be kept very busy during their growing years! Please keep us posted about your surgery...hope you have a really good weekend!

Beeeeg Hugs, Prema

Stella came yesterday after having a pretty rough night, awake several times with leg pain. Of course, my mind went right to her daddy at that age who developed Legg-Calve-Perthes, a problem affecting the blood flow to the hip joint. Twice he was in bilateral broomstick casts--darn inconvenient, to say the least. I didn't say anything to my son or dil, could just be growing pains. I believe there is a slight increased risk to the children of those who've had the disease.

My new freezer will be delivered this morning, and then I'll get my nails done. Mowing can wait.

The finger surgery should go well--a tiny incision at the base of the finger to do something to the tendon sheath, permitting the tendon to once again move smoothly through. The injection in my right hand has really helped the pain, although the PA is not as good with injections as the former one was.

Kathy, prayers that your finger surgery goes well next week. I hope you were able to sleep off your headache.

Today will be the final check on the blood sugars to see if these meds are the right ones. I think the doctor will keep me on these ones. No side effects.

Time to get my husband up to watch the boys.

This was supposed to be another water park day. The last before school starts, but Donovan is sick (vomiting up bile) and will have to take it easy today. Tomorrow he will have a play date and I hope he is up for that. They will be going bowling and he loves that.

Kathy, kids never do things when you want them too. Trying to video him when he is active will never work. They are just practicing for when they get older and will never you anything you want. LOL

Nolan spent a lot of time sleeping today. Twice the little rascal made it from the center of the quilt past the edge--two separate directions. Each time I took my phone out to try to video him, he just splayed out. I think because they have dogs, Nolan doesn't spend much time where he's free to move about much. Dottie would probably slobber all over him, and Lucy is so hyper I'm not sure what she'd do.

I waited nearly three hours for the tree trimmer to show up and give me an estimate. Just as I was preparing to leave for the store, he showed up. He's coming tomorrow afternoon. I'm grateful he could do it so soon.

I'll have Miss Stella tomorrow. Not sure what we'll do.

Prema, wishing you a safe trip to Singapore. You give me too much credit. I do what I have to and not much more. Today it was zumba, a walk and chasing Davis around. If I miss one zumba class, the instructor sends out the search dogs. LOL

Kathy, I bet you will be getting quite the workout once Nolan does start walking. I have to say, I don't let the little guy out of my sight, too much trouble that he can get into.

Ei, sorry for your loss. May she rest peacefully.

Davis will be 1 1/2 tomorrow. He has a check up with the doctor too. His newest thing is throwing everything into the trash and recycling. I have pulled toys and pictures out of there and I have to check very often. Hopefully he will learn what needs to be trashed and what doesn't.

Prema, though Nolan is not trying to stand yet, he sure knows his Grandma!! A word from my mouth elicits a smile; he will be a lady killer!! ...and the lady killer's waking up.

Later, friends

Hi, I'm still here, but have been so busy. My good friend passed away on Friday. Funeral was today. So sad, but a blessing. She really suffered so much in the past 3 months. Thanks for the prayers you said.
Shared time with my sister on Monday, which was so nice to catch up. Have not had much time
alone with her in awhile. We talked and talked and was so great to be with her.
Going to the gym yesterday was so nice. Saw the ladies at my Y that I had not seen in awhile.
Been going closer to home for 4 weeks now. So they were happy to see me, made me feel good.
I had missed them too. For 4 years we have been going to Fitness after 50 class twice a week.
Hope all of you are well and keeping active. Will hope to get on here more often. Meanwhile
thanks for the motivation and your friendship. God bless.
hugs, Irish Ei

Hi Kathy 1. I remember this neighbour of yours - he's the one I said who has a massive crush on you. This latest news confirms it...now who would run 14 miles and replace some outlets for a lady in need...I know guys who don't even run a mile and will still not do it. Only kidding, my kawan. Glad to know that your freezer will be sent to you by Friday...I cannot survive without mine!! How are the grandchildren - is Nolan now trying to stand? And does he get very excited to see you?? And how does Stella react when she has to share your attention with her brother??

Hi Chucky. Nice to hear from you and nice to know that you are graduating from walk to walk/run. Well done!!!

Hiya Pat. With all the zumba, home renovations, running around with your grandsons, I will have to fly to your part of the world and do a detailed analyses of your energy input and output. Please kawan...there's only 24 hours in a day during which you have to eat and sleep as well!!!

Off to Singapore tomorrow for a day of meetings, including 2 very challenging ones - will get a good night's sleep and pray that God does not give me strength or else I may bash up the lawyers to a pulp. I just need the patience of the Dalai Lama to handle these silly goons!!!

Take care everyone. Beeeeeg Hugs, Prema

All this running, not for me. My knees don't like the pounding on the pavement. I currently don't feel pain in my knee, but I don't want to ruin a good thing.

Chucky, nice to hear that you are doing well.

Pat

Hey Kathy 1....I guess i've lost touch here. I see that we are numbering the Kathy's now, guess we have more than one. No news is good news here...just came back from my walk/run 4.25 miles. More tonight after work......14 miles is a good distance I used to run that every day when I was in the service. I managed 19 miles once and i don't remember the last two or three miles of it...lol. Wish you all the best, have to get ready for work. All is well with me here. Have a great day ladies.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

That's quite a feat at any age. My neighbor is preparing for a half-marathon and came over Sunday after a 14-mile run to replace some outlets for me. He was 18 when we moved here in '89, so that would put him in his mid-40's; don't know how he does it, but he gladly accepted a bottle of water and some candy--needed that sugar badly!!

Both grandkids were with me yesterday and we had a family dinner, as Rob and Justin are back in town. This morning I went to buy a new freezer, but it had to be ordered. It will be delivered on Friday.

It's high-time for the rest of you to be chiming in with some kind of news. Hope all are well.

I must sign out--my yard awaits (and it's getting no cooler)!

Kathy 1

Hi Pat. I am a bit like you in the sense I also prefer smaller firms who maintain a professional stance with their clients and in their work.

We had a thunderstorm last night and the weather cleared up a bit and it was not too hazy this morning so I had a good run. I wanted to run faster but it was a case of the spirit being ever so willing but the body protesting and behaving ever so unwilling. it sucks to grow old.

Ladies, just recently, I saw the Commonwealth Games on the telly and in the 5000 metre women's race, there was a 40 year old lady who had given birth to her 2nd child about a year ago and she was participating among women who were very much younger including 3 Kenyan ladies who were fancied to take the top 3 positions. Anyway, I was in shock and awe when I saw her rippled muscles and her coach...get this...is her husband!!! To cut a long story short, she managed to find her mojo in the last lap and kicked her heels and managed to secure a 3rd place and received a standing ovation from the crowd. 40 years old!!!!! What an inspiration - hopefully, by next month, my spirit and body will be more in synch with each other!

Take care ladies. Beeeeeeg Hugs, Prema

Prema, the guy came over today to measure the windows for a quote. A second person will measure more closely before the windows get manufactured. The full process will take 8-10 weeks for them to be made and then installed. They work only locally and have a great business model. It's a family business that does not want to grow beyond the one location. They sound very competent. The windows and screens are guaranteed for life.

Wishing everyone a great week.

Pat

Hi Kathy 1. Now I know where I heard about Bountiful Basket. On this comedy called "Everybody Loves Raymond". In this show, Raymond gives his parents a Christmas gift which entails them receiving a basket of fruits every month until the following Christmas and by the 4th month, Marie (Raymond's mum) starts complaining about how stressful it is to have to finish the fruits before the next shipment came - and asked him to stop it altogether. I hope your brother recovers fully from his episode of e coli; as one gets older it seems that the after effects stay longer with us. Glad for you that Marcia is also doing well and very importantly, that your physical went off well, Be careful with the moving around of furniture. Pat and I will be checking on you ever so often to make sure that you don't get any idea crazier than moving around small items to make room for your armchair!!

As for your sister-in-law, it seems to me that this situation crosses international boundaries and every family will have one or more "lost causes"...I have a few of these in my extended family and i have no idea what happiness they derive by causing misery to everyone around them. So here's a piece of advice...please continue shutting your phone and continue ignoring her!!!

Pat, you are a bundle of energy and you never fail to amaze me! Replacement windows...wow!!! I am certain your grandsons are going to be the beneficiaries of the lessons one can gain from watching an energetic person who does not waste a moment of time on unnecessary stuff. Very very impressive.

By the way, you are very right about the governments in any country not having the ability to solve any problem. My girlfriend, who is a consultant to Malaysian Airlines, declared that she needed a very very stiff drink after attending their board meeting after listening to some of the dumb...really dumb...options they presented on going forward with the airlines. If people performed for the greater good and did not emphasise self-interest over the need of their countrymen, we will not be in such a mess, will we...

Have a great start to the week ladies and my best to Kathy 2, Chucky, JoAnn and Ei.

Beeeeeeg Hugs, Prema

Kathy 1, I hate washing windows too, but I think this will be better. Little fingerprints all over them need to be cleaned almost daily. You must be beat after babysitting on Thursday and Friday. I have the kids full time now too.

Pat, I love my windows that open in for cleaning; I'm still not crazy about cleaning them though.
I ended up without the kids both Thursday and Friday-- but I did get my new chair!! emoticon Yes, Prema, I had to shift the furniture so I could fully recline; as you know, I've had sufficient experience to do it safely!!

City-wide garage sales were today, so I put the old chair out by the curb hoping someone would rescue it. I covered it with the plastic from the new chair when it felt like rain and then went to breakfast with a friend. It rained, but the chair was gone when I returned home. The chair had belonged to my parents, so it still has love to give.

My brother left a message earlier. He sounded a little better, but said his wife is still not feeling well. I become a little suspicious of my sil's "illness", because she's always wanted to be the sole receptor of my brother's attention. Even after nearly 50 years, she resents the closeness of our family and wants to l keep us at a distance. I may sound unsympathetic, but I learned very soon after moving here in 1989 that she becomes quite ill from the time my brother leaves their home to come help me and his actual arrival at my home. It always required his immediate return home. Since it happened nearly every time, I began to question her illness--even resorting to turning my phone off (pre the onset of cell phones).

The yard is too wet to mow after rain the past two days. Maybe tomorrow.

Blessings to all,
Kathy 1

Kathy 1, so sorry to hear about your brother has e-coli, but happy to hear that he has been released. Good news for Marcia too. So happy to hear that she was also released on Wednesday. I know what you mean about the week moving on so quickly. With the boys here, it's go-go-go, every minute.

Today I went to see about replacement windows for my house. I have made that my new project after completing the deck. The rep is coming Monday after the boys go home to measure the current windows. They are made right here in Hilliard, Ohio and after the windows are measured, the manufacturing will take 8-10 weeks for installation. They do a great business there and they have the highest rating by the BBB. Any tears in the screens or moisture between the glass will be fixed for free for the life of the window. Also they have a safety catch about 4 inches up so that if you only open the bottom window 4 inches, the baby can't open them wider and fall out. They also open into the house so that you can clean the inside windows without having to go outside. Great energy savers too.

Pat

Where has this week gone? One day bleeds into another--then the week is gone.

My brother went to the emergency room Sunday night and was admitted. I was supposed to go pray at Marcia's with the ladies at from my Bible study Monday evening, prior to her mastectomy which was scheduled for Tuesday morning. After the kids were picked up, I went to the hospital to see Les, making my apology to Marcia and friends. My brother had e coli bacteria in his bladder, and there was some concern it was in his bloodstream. He spiked a fever Monday afternoon, but he recovered from that and did go home Wednesday. Marcia's surgery went well; she also went home Wednesday.

My physical also went well. I'm awaiting results from my mammogram.

Don't know if I mentioned my freezer died over the weekend.

Prema, the Bountiful Basket is an assortment of fruits and vegetables that I get every two weeks from a co-op. $15. This last time it came with bananas, oranges, figs, mangoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, radishes, broccoli, cabbage--sure I didn't remember it all!!

Pat still hasn't managed to get his father-in-law's truck, so my new chair is still awaiting pick up. I'll go look for another freezer over the weekend.

Trust all is going well for everyone. Prayers for Peter's caregiver.

Kathy 1

Prema, you are right. Today will be the slip and slide in the back yard after lunch. I read today about the Malaysian Airlines may be taken over by the government. It said it was part of the stock exchange, but after these last two incidents, they think it may be better that way. I don't know how government can improve anything these days.

Wishing everyone a great Friday and weekend.

Pat
