What a wake up call! Just getting into a good sleep and boom! I thought it was thunder when it woke me up. Looked at radar and nothing. My son came in and said earthquake! Then I realized that rumble was the earth! Shook the house good. Turns out the epicenter was about 10 miles from my house. Preliminary report was 3.5 centered 8.7 miles NNW of LaCenter, KY near the Ohio River here in Ballard County. It was a "Shallow" earthquake about 14km. Now I'm wired! What a way to start May!

Big hugs y'all! My poor baby is going blind too so I know what you are going through. She follows me everywhere and I have to watch out so I don't trip over her.

I've been super stressed out this week. Thankfully tonight I'm finally calming down some. Had internet and phone issues all day. My cell phone was giving me trouble too (darn you Verizon) so when my son got home, he got everything straightened out.
I hate waking up with a migraine - ruins the day. Fortunately I have learned that I don't always need to take medication for them (can't because of rebound headaches which are even worse). The migraine wasn't really bad but I was just all out of sorts. I laid down and finally took a nap which helped. When I woke up I wasn't dizzy or sick so I could take a shower. That helped too. So now I'm trying to catch up with my computer stuff before bedtime.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Take care! emoticon

I had one migraine once, and that was enough for me. I went thru a period of sudden intense pain in my head. I had sinus and trigeminal nerve problems. It was very painful, but not as bad as the migraine!

Larry is blind too. He is barking....I am at his beck and call. I wanted to say more, like thx for the nice team goodie, but I must go.

Yeah, I have had migraines for over 50 years. They're chronic now. I see the neurologist the 28th. My last appointment had to be rescheduled because of my Dad's fall. So next week is the neurology and on May 9th is my psych appointment then off to my brother's house. Hopefully he's doing better and will be feeling better then. I told him he was my beach walking buddy and I needed him. My sumatriptan (Imitrex) is one of those meds I hold off on because you get 9 pills a month - actually you're only supposed to take no more than 2 doses (2 pills) in a week or 4 in a month. So I put it off. My last neuro appointment we were going to talk about adding other meds but that hasn't happened yet so we'll see. I discovered one of my psych meds was a daily migraine trigger and my last daily migraine med actually made them worse so I'm off both of those. I'm sure my allergies are to blame for some of my current migraines too. That and stress - worrying about my Dad and both brothers, worrying about paying bills, worrying about meds, worrying about my migraines, my dog's driving me crazy (she's 14, going blind and is a walking fanatic - she follows me everywhere, I have to watch it or I'll fall over her). I'm not sleeping good either, so that's not helping. I'll figure it out. Wish I'd have another one of those multi year lulls in the migraines - it's overdue!
Hope everyone's doing okay. Allergy season is horrible this year. Needless to say that my allergies and asthma aren't any fun right now.
I know everyone is tired of me saying I have a migraine. Some people don't understand migraines and think they're just a headache but they're not. Plus everytime I see the retina specialist I have migraines for about a week afterward from them dilating my eyes and shining in those bright lights.
I'll live. I've made it this far.

It is called Sinol-M sinus spray. Ask your doc if it may help. It is homeopathic.

Hope u r doing well. I remember reading an article that said that a capsaicin nasal spray helped those with migraines. You have migraines so much; I wish that something could help.

Great pics!

I am taking a break from walking, as it appears I probably have knee tendonitis. I did a lot of jumping jacks in the pool and it flared up my knee. I never had that happen before.

Hope everything is well with you ladies and gents!

This was me doing some work on Sunday.
But first I had too begin cleaning the kitchen from the inactivity of the last six months


almost ready to go .. I now will get the toothbrush out and clean those hard to get places - I have a high standard when it comes to the safety and well being of the food and prepping areas - start off the season the best we possible can be because once the two hundred guess begin to arrive - the standard doesn't lessen - but the maintenance is harder to keep. We are a very primitive trailer kitchen yet we are cleaner than many restaurants I have worked in or have peaked in while visiting their establishments. Blame that on the fact I was a military chef and many years in hospital kitchens.

Hi y'all. Hope everyone is doing okay. We have had rain and thunderstorms all evening. This will continue into tomorrow night. Yuck. My dog hates all the lightning and thunder.
Glad you're able to go geocaching again Marty. Hate that this is your last few free days before work starts. Enjoy them.
Got another tracker since my fitbit flex quit working correctly. My new one is one my son had but had to quit wearing. It's a Samsung Gear Fit tracker. I'm loving it so far. It tracks when I'm inside the mall or stores where my fitbit only tracked 1/4 of what I did.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week. Take care

YES - I went and bought yet again another Handheld GPS. I have uploaded several caches.
Today - I'll go walk Dalhouise around our regular route to tire him out.. Then we will load the bikes onto the bike rack on the car drive 75km or so and go geocaching.
I must keep Noni happy so I'll limit my geocaching today.. There is an area she wanted to go back too that we rode two years ago - I can birdwatch, and geocache.
I'm so happy.... However this is my last week of freedom - work begins next Sunday...

So yesterday I took Noni up to the highlands where Dalhouise and I had hiked at the beginning of February. We did the same rout s without getting lost this time. What I noticed was it seemed so much shorter to reach the end point then when I did it the first time. Much more comfortable hiking in known territory then going into the unknown.

So these are our signs of Spring bursting upon our beings, and take note of the Dalhouise wallowing in a little creek bed..

It was so very windy today! With all the old trees that barely survived the ice storm of 2009 out everywhere, no dog walks today. I went outside for a short while several times but the wind was too much. Back when my son was about 2, I had been out on a real windy day like today and ended up with Bells Palsy. Don't want a repeat of that so I'm indoors today.

Marty, so glad to hear you and Noni got out for a ride together. Camp season already? Wow! Where did time go? I do hope you're able to do more than you have to enjoy yourself while at Camp this year. Love all the photos you post.
The weather is so screwed up - two days ago it was 84 - today the low 50s. Tonight it's supposed to get down to freezing again. Darn it anyway! I never know how to dress anymore!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Take care.

This days was the first time this year that Noni came out riding with me. I'm sure it won't be the last, but our days are numbered for the freedom to just drop everything and go out to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. Camp season for me begins in about 15 days and 20 days for Noni. I really hope that this year I do get more opportunity and have energy to go out riding / walking / hiking more during the summer then I have had in the last few seasons. Still trying to figure out why my handheld GPS and computer won't work together - haven't geocache in so long now which makes me sad.

do you ever feel like your just an old rusty body of rusted pile of nuts and bolts?

Love the bird photos. I'm at my other brother's house in NE Tennessee this week. I go back home Saturday. Then I'll have Internet access again, yay. I hope everyone is doing okay. Today's planned walk at a local park was rained out. Total wash out. But I did do some walking out today shopping with my best friend. Had a good time. I hadn't seen my bff since last September in Florida when we were down there. I'll be leaving for Florida probably after I pick up my meds after my doctor appointment on may 9th then that next weekend head to Florida. It'll be an insane year.

Thanks for sharing your photos Marty. I've enjoyed them so much.
Hopefully I will be leaving this weekend and going either home or my brother's house. It all depends on the weather at my brother's house because he's coming to get me. I'll be home for March and April then back to my Dad's house to help my brother in May and part of June. This is one screwed up year.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week

Motivation to get outside







Not sure what the plan is for today yet. First we have church, then there is a church fellowship luncheon - then it is unclear. Was talk about us going to Vancouver- but I think we will do this Tuesday- so we might go explore a trail this afternoon if the rains hold off.

I was sitting here remembering my lament about not having a bike because someone stoled it - that was two years ago now. I have replaced it and I do enjoy getting out exploring. I really need to do more riding - that is the goal for this year.
Anyways here are is a summary of my ride earlier this week

I peddle up this steep - real steep hill and at the top is the hospital - how convient I thought to my self as my heart pounded in my chest.



















One of my highlights was seeing this

I can't wait till the rains stop so I can go out once more..45 days or so before I'm back at camp in the kitchen unable to go for walks and ride so easy
