Hello! I missed a couple more days. I am back into trying to find a job. For a couple hours a day at least. My friend got free tickets to an improv comedy show last night. It was the 9:45pm show. It was late but we went anyway and didnt get home til 1:30am!! Maybe Im not as old as I sometimes feel! HA HA HA HA My boys are going to the Rockies game tomorrow afternoon so Im gonna enjoy a quiet afternoon at home.

Mary - I got the same message about the scripts when I logged on to. I hope that you are safe and not close to the fires.

I hope everyone else is well and safe as well.

Mary,

That was so scary!

To add a link, when you are typing your post - just use the "Add a Link" button above and type the line in there. It then puts a link on the bottom line of the post so far.

It is much like adding an emoticon, did you ever do that?

Love,

Sally

I've never tried to put a link on here before. Hope this works. Sally has all the water and I have all the fire. Can you imagine this coming toward your house?

Well, Sally will have to tell me how to make it a link. You can paste it and see it. I have a coupleof pictures of one of the fires I will put in my photos.

Susan - so happy that a friend "stepped up" for you! We moved in with my parents and pretty much live in our bedroom, too. So, I really understand the mixed emotions. How great to get a helping hand!

Mary, I saw a graphic on the weather channel today about Texas with red fiery colors to show the drought and heat. It is amazing that we can be so opposite in our weather this year!

Love to all,

Sally

Hello all,
Glad to see you back,Sassi. And you,too, Milli.
I am moving this weekend, so I will be awol for a few days. Katie is going to be a bit of a floater-staying a few weeks w/ her brother in Pawhuska, but mostly w/Brandi here in town. Edwin an I are moving in w/ a dear friend of mine and her hubby. They have 2 bed,2 bath apt. and are graciously allowing us to stay w/them until we can get on our feet and/or find something we can handle. Katie will stay a day or two w/us every week, as well. She just needs more privacy than to be sharing a roo w/us,lol.(Plus she loves an excuse to hang out@her sisters. Even tho they are the oldest and youngest, they are great buds and reading fiends-also partners in crime-yikes!,lol)
Sally, if you and Mary could trade a bit of weather-their warm temps for you water-it would help you both. They don't need floods in Texas but sure could use wet to help w/the fires and their nice warm weather would dry things out for the flooded folks.
I mus stop procrastinating and get packing. Am I the only one who feels like it would be be better to throw it all away and start over when faced w/packing chores??? *sighes*," I must get on it."
Much love to all
Susan

Hi Everyone, sorry somehow I got unsubscribed and I was wondering if you all became suddenly silent. I hope you are all doing great. I'm off to Alberta for 3 weeks of vacation and can't wait. I'm meeting up with a member from SparkPeople so that makes it extra special. Take good care everyone and I'll pop back when I return from vacation. :)

Mary and Tracy - I am glad that you like okra, but they are on my icky list. They kept trying to give them to me when we lived in Raleigh, NC - but I couldn't do it. I can't eat asparagus either. Don't know why our taste buds like some things and reject others.

Cheri - take care. Even a new friend should be ok if your house isn't perfect! You need some energy to shop with her....

Mary, that script thing is probably in your computer, running out of memory. Maybe you could try starting a new thread for us, so it doesn't have to load so many old messages? Just a thought.

Tracy - I always get hungry reading your posts!

Milli - good to have you back. I love cows and calves, but I would have been upset to see them branded. My husband's 2nd cousin in Wisconsin had a dairy farm, and I would love to visit them. Big soft wet noses and cuddly bodies!!

Susan - I am thinking about you and praying for you. Do you guys belong to a church? Have you thought about asking one for ideas/help? If you want, I can make some calls for you if you tell me where you are. I have free long distance, and know how to talk to ministers!

Kay - I hope that you are having a wonderful visit. My heart is bursting for you, what a wonderful blessing to have new twin grand babies!

I "unfriended" the woman in my neighborhood with the twins. It was not good for me emotionally, I took too much responsibility for her.

I took a short movie of the rain here today. Did a video blog, but now I don't see it. I guess I will try a THIRD time!

Maggie, dear, how are you doing?? I miss your beautiful heart when you don't visit.

Susie - hope you are doing better.

Lizzie - did you have the fireworks thing yet?

Love to all,

Sally

Is anyone else having trouble when this page loads?
It started yesterday. A box comes up and ask if I want to continue running a script. It is making you computer run slow and may become unresponsive. It has something to do with the ad right above these post. It locks up my computer and in a minute or two it starts over again and then finally clears up.

Wow! its been almost a week since I checked in! with the short week being a busy one I kind of lost track of the days! I will read posts later in the day. Had a great weekend with my hubby stripping and staining my parents outside steps and bench. IT was fun to work together. Saben went with my mom to her brother's ranch in SE Colorado for the weekend. He had a great time! He got to drive the truck in the pasture, dig in the dirt and bottle feed Junior, a calf whose momma died. He told me they played the meanest trick on those calves: we herded them down the chute, squeezed them in it and then poked them with a red hot brand. mom said that they branded 300 calves one day. I guess that IS a mean trick.

I will go back and read the posts from the past week when I get a chance. Hope everyone has been having a good week!

Maybe picked okra is a Texas thing. I have had sweet ones, but I like the dill ones best. They are on all the salad bars around here. We will pickle anything. Have you ever had pickled watermelon rind. We use to eat that when I was a kid. Don't see it now. I found a reciepe in mother homemade cookbook. I was going to make some this summer, but never got around to doing it.

Oh Mary I am so sorry about the fires. I am surprised you don't hear from Teresa I thought you were quite good friends .
Sally I am sorry I was not around much I am trying to tidy the house for Bev (Sassispring) to come to visit but I haven't been feeling all that great. I felt so good when I was in Montreal I was zipping around doing all sorts of things.My doctor says it was the change in altitide . I asked him if he thought I was better off in hurricanes ,he laughed and said perhaps my joints liked the hot moist weather !

It looks like many of the places that I ran around as a child have all burned. My aunt and uncle homeplace and my best friends childhood home is gone due to fire. My aunt and uncle died years ago and most of the people I knew have all moved. Talked to Alans mother and her grandson and granddaughter in law that has been causing all the trouble are moving their furniture and things out of their house tonight. A fire is a few miles from them. Teresa, that use to come here has a fire close to her. I don't ever hear from her.

Hi Everyone!

Cheri, I missed you. Glad you are back with us.

There was some leftover macaroni elbows in the fridge, so I was inspired to make a tuna macaroni salad. I put some fresh carrots and bread and butter pickles in with mayo and it came out delicious.

My sister and the kids left yesterday afternoon for Florida. They went by Amtrak and then are renting a car in Florida this time. Sounds like they survived fine on the train between dvds and ipad, etc! They left Philly about 5pm and then got to the Orlando area around noon. I like trains, but I don't think that I could do that with a seat like they did. When we moved back east from CA, we had a first class bedroom on a train, and that was great.

Mary, I grew up Catholic, too. Different areas tend to have different cultures! I grew up in CT, and went to a Catholic school.

Slept until 1:30 this afternoon, and woke up feeling much better.

Buddy is still not using his back leg. I might have not mentioned that to all of you before. He holds up his left back leg. I felt the whole thing and he doesn't cry, or I would have taken him right to the vet. I think that he has a sprain, so I am keeping him at rest as much as I can. He already takes heavy duty anti-inflammatory medicine for his skin, so I added back glucosamine and chondroitin. The research that I did said that if it isn't a sprain, it could be a tear in his knee. That usually happens to jumpy puppies, so I am hoping that it is a sprain. He is peppy and needs help getting on and off the bed 100 times a day. He weighs about 50 pounds, so I am getting good arm workouts!

Love to all,

Sally

When I was a teenager, my mom bought Avon. There was some of the perfumed skin creme that would give me a rash. I just didn't use those ones, but loved the rest of them. There is a facebook page, "You know you're from Alto when...." Someone was talking about the Avon lady the other day. She couldn't walk, so she would come to your house and honk her horn. Everyone bought form her. She was a very sweet lady. She also came to the dairy treat and honked from us to bring her order out to her. Of course, I came from a small town where everyone knew everyone. I talk to kids here and they don't even know everyone in their grade at school. We knew everyone in school. There was 32 in our graduation class. Grades 7 through 12 were all in the band together, played sports together, and was in the choir together. Not to even mention all of us being in girl scouts together and going to church together. It didn't matter if you were a baptist or methodist, or church of Christ, we would all go to each others church. We didn't have a catholic church, didn't even know what that was.

I sell a lot of the cracked heel relief cream-- it is also good for hands too!! A lot of the people I now whose hands get cracked and bleeding use it.

Thank God it has been a calm night-- I am getting caught up with some stuff I needed to attend to! I have a 1/2 read book I am gonna go to now to finish reading-- it is a short one but good!

looking forward to our chat tomorrow :)
Much love

I have thought of trying those foot pads-- lately I am paying better attention to my feet-- they get dry in the winter! I scrubbed them and lotioned them today :)

It has been windy and rainy here tonight... wondering what crazy storm is on its way now!

Tomorrow I will get home and do my laundry because I dont want to waste my day off!

I also need to get some returns together so I can get credit for them from AVON.. someone returned 2 more items tonight! Grrrr

I am hoping the bad weather ends so Tanya can take some garbage out -- she "forgot" todo it on her day off when it was BEAUTIFUL out-- grrrrr,

I have heard about those foot pads-- do you really see any difference ??

Much love

It would be one thing if the updates actually did something but I do not see any differences!

tanya will be home from work as her back is out of whack again so she is hoping to get an adjustment -- I hope she can be fit in-- otherwise she is useless!

Seems everyone wants to call here tonight-- friends and strangers, lol! Phones been relly busy!

So glad my "dinner guy" Mike is back from his Ramadan month off from work! I miss good meals!

Hello l,
We hit a record low last night for the date-it was 47 degrees& I was emoticon
I am so tired from not sleeping/resting, IDK what to do.
Too much on my mind I know,
I am exploring every possibility-including getting myself a van so we can sleep in it.
Blah!
Tracy, I am not a fan of bleeding things,lol. I would be horrid in the health-care profession.
Lizzie, glad you are chugging along. Thanks for the prayers, I sure need some divine intervention!
Kay glad you got to see Charlie. Be careful and safe on your trip and enjoy those grandbabies.
Susie, I love going to thrift stores. If I get a van I can sleep in the parking lot and get the early bird specials,lol.
Mary, I am glad your fires have settled down a bit. We need to do some rain dances!
Sally, I am glad you got to have some fun! We need to do some sleep dances and job/apartment/insurance/health dances as well. All that dancing should drop a few pounds,lol.
Have a good Tuesday.
Much love to all
Susan
Cheri and Milli????? SOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The winds have died down, so the fires are much better.

Sam, introduced his friends to my brother, are should I say he told my brother that "this" is my running buddy. He could not remember her name. He couldn't remember her name when I saw her either, so, none of us know her name.

Kay - so good to hear from you. Can't wait to hear about your visit with the grandbabies. We want PICTURES!! I was so happy to hear that you got to see Charlie. His body has to adjust to losing that weight so fast. He will look better soon.

Mary, I am worried about you and the fires. I am praying for you.

Susan - sometimes things just get worse before they get better. I know that things will get much better for you.

Susie - I am not sleeping again! I didn't get in bed until 8:30 this morning. I was so tired last night, but couldn't get sleepy. I had bad nightmares the night before, so maybe I just didn't want to risk it. Caught up with a lot of tv shows ON DEMAND. Sounds like you and your mother have big plans for your basement. Be careful!

Tracy - Saw on the weather this morning that there is just rain and storms every day forever! My sister is leaving in an hour with her kids for their Florida vacation. They are taking the train to Florida this time. I hope that they can handle the long train ride. It is so much for my sister to drive by herself.

Lizzie - nice to hear from you. I still can't imagine working on the road crew. I don't think I could do it even if they let me sit down! Plus, I can't wear hats - did you have to wear a helmet???

Cheri - Have you recovered from your trip yet? Sometimes it takes me longer to recover than the thing that we do!

Sunday I helped in children's church, which I love. Then we went to a baptism and bbq at one of our Pastor's houses. (We have two pastors, not two houses for one pastor!!) It was so much fun. I finally got to go in the water this year. It has been hard since I can't afford the YMCA anymore, and we haven't been to the shore when I felt like I could be in the water. I adore being in the water. At the bbq, I played with a 3 year old that needed a buddy to be in the water named Destiny. She was so cute. Then after lunch, I played with a 5 year old named Rachel that needed a buddy. I love kids, so it was fun for me.

I visited a long time at a table with some of my women friends that I am getting to know. One of them is a wonderful lady who is deaf. I have always been really comfortable with deaf people, and have had many friends over the years. She and I chat on Facebook a lot. I promised her that I would brush up on my sign language for her. I used to be really good at it.

Yesterday, we went to Longwood Gardens. I love it there. I have lots of photos and videos to process, and I will let you know where to see them soon.

Got lots of exercise this weekend, and feel like we were on a very cheap "vacation". With my sister, we share memberships at the Zoo and Longwood Gardens, so it didn't cost anything to go either place.

Love to all,

Sally

Hi Ladies,
I guess I am among the missing. I don't mean to be away so long, but many birthdays, and anniversaries. Kids here and gone and here again from Nova Scotia. I am leaving for NC to see my beautiful new twin grandbabies in 45 min. Cannot wait to see them.

I SAW CHARLIE. I cannot believe it. No visit since last Nov. and finally last week we were both well enough for one visit. I wanted to do both visits that day, but almost fell asleep on the way home, so was glad I was not stuck up there longer. He was yawning too. He has lost almost 100 lbs and very fast. He is only eating what is on his diabetic diet and looks awful. I did not tell him that, but it is true. He is so hungry. Of course they are not giving him the right food again. I think he will call me in NC so I can see how this week is going. It was our anniversary- six years. And his birthday. So that was nice.

Also started (one session) cardiac rehab. It was good and I am doing well with the bp on it. They do the bp after each machine I was on. It seemed tame, but I need to get back to exercise. And this way I know I am being watched. I will be doing it when I get back. I think six or eight weeks....

I read the posts and caught up. Susan I am praying for your living quarters. Life is not for the shy is it? Mary I am still praying for the fires to die down. I do that for you every time I watch the news. It is so bad in TX.

Well, just wanted to let you know I am not awol. I am discouraged with not losing, but am staying with the diet the doc recommended. We will see what happens when I get to my daughter's house. She knows I am doing something different.

I have three different flights and a 3 hr plus layover in NY. It is easier to get to Iraq.... oh well. I am flying from our little airport to her little airport, and that is why.

Hope I get on while there, but not sure I will. Love to all. Kay

Happy Labour Day Everyone!! Hope y'all are having a grand day. It is about 27C here so I am hiding out in the house.

Mary I just signed into Wedding Planner. I am going to see what it is like. Do you play any word games? Does anyone play Scrabble on FB

Got to run to Walmart to exchange a file cabinet. Then maybe I can get rid of all this paper work that is in every other drawer in this house lol

Susan many many prayers going out your way that all your issues with housing and Edwins medical claim get settled soon. I am sure that this is all bothering poor Edwin as well as you

Hi Everyone! Its been raining here almost everyday. I keep having problems with my sump pump in my basement. It quits working occasionally. My mom and dad are going to get a new one for me tomorrow. I hope they get it figured out for me. I hate worrying about my basement flooding all the time. I didn't do very much today. I organized my coupons into a binder to take shopping with me. I made a corn bake and some sugar bacon. I might make some hobo beans this week. I was supposed to go to a picnic today but I just didn't feel like going.

I solved my typing problems I think it was my internet explorer program. I'm now using google chrome. It works fine now.

Mary- Has she been tested for celiac? It can cause anemia. I have to get a celiac panel done to rule it out. Celiac is where you can not eat anything with gluten in it. You might want to google it and check it out. I think the reason I'm anemic is because of my gastric bypass and it took 3 years to use my iron stored. My doctor wants to check all the possibilities out just in case.

I have to go back to work tomorrow which I really don't want to. I only have 3 days to work this week since I'm off friday. I work saturday, sunday, monday and tuesday next week then I have 5 days off. My mom and I are going to try to waterproof my basement. I hope it helps. I would also like to paint my bedroom I bought the paint a few months ago. I hope it turns out good.

I'm also hoping to go to atlantic city in October on a bus trip. We still need to book the trip. then I have the week of christmas off. I also took black friday off to go shopping.

I bought a Ralph Lauren purse at the thrift store a few weeks ago for 2.00 I love it. It has a pink print. I love going to the thrift stores to just see what I can find.

Well I better go to bed.

Good Night Everyone! emoticon

Hello all,
Maggie, I agree w/Cheri-Readers Digest is a good place. My kiddo uses tumblr which is all about blogs,etc..
I hope my search tomorrow gets me somewhere for a place to live. I dont want to end up in the shelter!
Tracy, people seem to get a bit crazy w/summers last hurrah!
Mary, we are going to be just UNDER 80 degrees here today and a low of 49. I am so happy-if it would just rain, we'd be in business!
Susie, glad your mom is doing well. Hope they find the source of your anemia. I am so jealous-a PINK coat,lol.
Cheri, did I miss it-how was your trip?
Lizzie, I can't sleep much, either. Too much on my mind(or not enough mind,lol)
Hope everyone has a good holiday
Much love to all
Susan

Please pray for the people living outside the city limits. Fires have broken out everywhwere. They are evacuating people from their homes. All the fire departments outside the city limits are volunteers and their is not enough people or resources to fight all the fires, Texas Forrestry dept is utilizing everyone they have and there is still not enough. Some fires are just burning. These people have worked for days without rest and there is no end in sight. Many will lose their homes. The wind is high and we have no rain in the forcast.

Tracy, even 92 feels cool since we have been so hot this summer. We have a good breeze. Unfortunately there are so many fires that the wind is a bad thing right now. We smelled smoke a few minutes ago and went out to see if we cuold see anything. Found nothing. Looked on the web and there is a fire about 7 miles from here. It has burned 500 acres so far. I guess with the wind so high the smell is coming here. I just watched the news and there was no mention of it, but there are so many fires.

Susie, have they ever found out why you get anemic? My mother in law is anemic again and they have never found out why. This will be the 3rd time she has had the infusion treatments. It is weird because she has blood work done every 3 months and she will be fine on her blood work and then the next time she is anemic. Last year they did a bunch of test and still didn't find anything. This happens once a year.

Maggie, I can not even imagine trying to get on a camel. I am glad that you have found something that gives you some contentment. It seems that you just got outfor the summer and now you are getting ready for students.

I sometimes think I am so silly. I have been down all week and I think it is because water areobics has ended. I sit at the house too much and need to find something to keep me busy. I worked today and was hoping that I would do better standing, but it was about the same.

We went tot he new library and I was disappointed. It seems smaller and they had sitting areas at the old library where you could comfortably sit and read next to some large window. The new library has NO windows and all they have is thin metal chairs sitting at a square metal table. Not a very calming, or relaxing atmosphere. Reminded me of prison.

Guess What? Our high was 92 today. I kept saying, September will be better. Unfortunately we still have not gotten any rain, pray soon. I sat out on the porch last night, we had a breeze and it felt so good.

Got a call from the people that I house and dog sit for. I am going to be there next weekend, one weekend in Oct and one weekend in Nov. I am a little bit nervous. They have 16 puppies. I never been there when they had small puppies. Oh, well. I will make sure they get fed and plenty of water, so they will be ok. She did say that they are using the pet door, so they can get in the air conditioning and the heat if it is cold.

Hi Everyone! Its raining here today. My mom is doing great and will finish her breast reconstruction surgery in January. After that she wants to get her knee replacment done in the summer. I'm still struggling with my weight and diet. I started my iron infusion treatments then after 10 of them. I had a reaction and got sick so the stopped them for now. I'm back to being tired again. I took my mom shopping yesterday. I got 2 biggest loser books for 4.99 each. Which I hope will give me some motivation to lose more weight. I found a brand new pink leather coat at the thrift store for 39.99 so I bought it its a little tight in the hips so I thought it might give me some inspiration. When it fits better I will take a picture and post it. I have also been letting my hair grow. Its almost to my shoulders.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I have a 3 day weekend with the holiday tomorrow.

Susie emoticon
