Thank you for explaining why I need to have a window for a roll around AC. I never thought of that. I am so glad your markers are back down. Hopefully they will go all the way down. I don't know exactly what you are talking about, but I do remember when JoAnna was ill. I am praying that you will go into permanent remission.

Glenna, It's good to hear from you! I couldn't find hoeing on the activity tracker - just digging. When a person is hoeing or digging do they time themselves? Hope all goes well with your husband's doctor visit and he is set free!
Judy, What a wild escapade with your dog! Too bad you have to miss TOPS.
Ann, I would prefer the roll around a/c but we only have a couple of days a year we might want one. Hooray for the good lab report!
Miss Patty, I hope all is well with you. I'm thinking you are busy today.
Judy from what I know, yes you do need to have the roll around air conditioner near a window for the exhaust hose.
Good news from the doctors office today. My cancer markers had come in a day early and they are down. In April they were 8605 and as of last Friday they are down to 4928. That is almost where they were last Nov. when they started to go up and my doctor decided it was time to do surgery.
Good morning. I'm early today and am not sure why. I did wanted to see if #1DS had sent an email that they were now home. They arrived in Fl. on Friday from Costa Rica and drove home yesterday. In a short email he sent from Fl. said he and DIL had diaharria for a week. GD did not get it. They are probably still in bed a sleep. They are early morning to bed and early afternoon up. It doesn't sound like their vacation was very enjoyable.
I have a Dr. app't this afternoon. Won't learn much until tomorrow afternoon when they finally receive the complete lab report.
DH came home from his walk and said Home Depot just got in a truck load of air conditioners. How I would love one or two but have no idea how we would install it. We have bars on our windows. I think maybe the inside roll around ones might work but still would be a challange to find a window that doesn't have furniture in front of it.
Glenna, I hope your DH doctor app't for his shoulder goes well. I have a bum shoulder. I have gotten to the point that I just put up with it. I do stretch it by crawling up the wall and that does help.
Our day is sort of gray this morning. I just read the weather forecast and snow is predicted for tonight. I hope that doesn't freeze out the plants in my planters. I have planted twice now. I don't have to worry about weeds in the planters though. I like the idea of not having to hoe rows and rows of garden like we did when we had a quarter of an acre in garden. I did enjoy the produce then, but it certainly was a lot of work. My end of the work was not so much the planting and hoeing, but I did a lot of picking and even more preservation of the produce.
I did learn a lot during those years. My husband at the time believed in organic gardening. He was reared on a truck farm during the depression. He always maintained that chemical fertilizers would negatively influence the soil and the produce from that soil. His theories are now proving correct. He doesn't grow a garden anymore. I do wish he'd grow another steer for us. I miss that clean meat.
I think I told you that Gidget panicked yesterday and ran off. I got her back and now she is sticking to me like plaster. I am so very grateful she is safe and back with me. I don't have anything planned for the day. Tomorrow is my TOPS day but a friend called and asked if I would take him to his doctor's appointment. Their vehicle is shot and they have no other transportation. He has cancer and has already lost one leg. The other is likely to be taken fairly soon. He was a thalidomide baby and the damage that drug did is a lifetime of misery.
After we do his doctor's appointment we will go to the Habitat for Humanity store and see if we can find a new washing machine for them. Theirs has just died. I am glad that is one problem I don't have anymore. We only had a washing machine for a few months then our water killed that machine. You can see why I don't drink our tap water. Instead we take our empty water bottles to a local church and fill them there.
Does anyone know if any of the members on our list lived in the areas that were hit by the tornadoes? I hope not. That situation is tragic. I lived in Michigan when Flint was hit by a devastating tornado. I was babysitting that afternoon and we were sitting outside on the porch. The clouds were beautiful that day, but she refused to look at them. I heard just a couple of hours later that Flint had been hit. Tornadoes are such a tragedy.
Enough for now. See you all later.

Good morning everyone. I just thought I'd stop by and say hello. I haven't been by for a while. I did gardening yesterday, too, Jan. We were supposed to get rain, but never did. I know I heard thunder in the back ground a few times, but it passed us by.
We still have some plants to put in yet. And a few seeds and it will be done. Well the planting part anyway. Lots and lots of hoeing!
Hope everyone has a good day. DH has an apt tomorrow to get his shoulder checked. I am thinking the dr will probably release him this time. DH is doing well with using it.

I really got a full day of gardening in yesterday. In the night I heard the rain so not sure I'll be able to do more today. I divided a dahlia that was too close to another and ended up with 9 instead of 2. Also planted the Cosmos.
What a horrible disaster in Oklahoma. Prayers sent up for the loss of life and damage.
Tonight we're having tilapia for dinner and steamed broccoli - potato salad for DH.
