So excited-this afternoon Vickie & I interviewed a young man who is going to take over the weeding and some trimming for us in the park! Long time coming and hope he does a good job for us as we will use him year round if he does. Now I have to tell our board members what we have done and hope they don't have an issue.

Gail sounds like a wonderful time and how great that Vic gave the Vette to your son and he has had it restored. I bet riding in it brought back memories. My brother had a 65 Vette back when we were in college and I got to drive it occasionally. He worked nights for a trucking company as a dispatcher and went to class by day-could get by on very little sleep in those days!

Vic, Sonny & I went to some yard sales today. I picked up a bag of quilts for $1 and when I told the lady I was getting them to donate to the homeless she gave me 3 more bags to give them! We have a lady in our community who collects items for them and she takes them to another lady who distributes the items. Will continue to look for more items to donate as it gets colder.

Had a phenomenal trip to Charlotte. Breezed through security. Since I'm over 75 I didn't have to take off my shoes or jacked and I didn't have to raise my arms. Got to Detroit with enough time to grab a sandwich and use the ladies room. The flights were fine and the leg to Charlotte arrived about 20 minutes early. My son met me at the airport and we rode to his home in his new car....very nice.

Today my son, Markus, took me for a ride in his 1965 Corvette. Victor bought it years ago and I nearly divorced him over it. Markus asked if he could have it after many years and Vic gave it to him. A few years ago Markus had the Vet restored and OMG it's now a 50+ year old car that looks brand new.

Going out to dinner tonight.

Sending hugs,

Gail

Hope you have a good time with your family Gail.

Sandy seems like you are pretty much full time these days?? Glad you rest up when you aren't working. The older I get, the more rest I need!!

Today I had to visit the foot dr and we met friends for lunch. They had their 10 wk old sheltie puppy with them so had to find someplace where we could sit outside to eat so settled on Culvers. Had a nice visit with them and hope for a longer visit soon.

Had chills and just kind of ached a bit all over yesterday. Got into bed and slept. By midnight I was fine. Today too. Sleep works wonders for me.

Sounds like you are all having fun. That's the ticket!

Stay well and safe everyone.

I finished the removal of the border yesterday - glad to have that job done. The cold has finally made its way to FL and today I made a huge crockpot of vegetable soup. Looking forward to cooler weather and enjoying all kinds of soup.

Nan: Is a neighborhood cookout common where you live? Are you in a rural area? Herein our neighborhood they have a 4th of July party, but the neighborhood association pays for the food and drink. Also, at Halloween, they have a bonfire and serve hot cider.

Been doing a bit of walking each day (20-30 minutes) and trying to get more fit. Also started stretching my hip muscles. Muscles get tight if you don't use them.

Have a happy weekend all,

Gail

The snowbirds are returning and we had 24 for breakfast this morning. We aren't too happy with the restaurant so hoping we can find another that can handle a large group.

I worked more on removing the border today and hopefully can finish it tomorrow. Sure wish the arms would hold out to scrape more. I have set it up to get the bedroom painted on Nov 21/22 - the room will need 2 coats so it is going to end up taking 2 days I think. Then we will get our driveway sealed after that. We had to wait for it to get cooler before that could be done.

Gail how exciting-something to look forward to and a great reason to get in shape. I am sure you will be up to the task.

We had our 1st RO meeting of the year and lots of park business to conduct and there is going to be several fairly big projects being done before the end of the year. I am so thankful our community is in good financial shape so we can do these things. I did get my walk in before the meeting but didn't get any more work done on the border-instead went to an estate sale this afternoon!!!

Good Afternoon

I'm over the moon. I booked a trip to Italy this spring! A neighbor uses this outfit over and over and has a few trips scheduled for this year. The great news is that there is no single supplement and the group is small (14-16 people). I'll be going to Sicily and to the toe and heal of the boot of Italy. Today I waked for 40 minutes. Got to get in shape so I can walk a lot. With several months ahead of me I'll have lots of time. This winter I'll take to the mall. This has me so excited; I feel like a little kid.

Sandy hope you are getting enough rest so you can fight off the cough. Hoping it doesn't cause anything else.

I am feeling pretty good but still tire easily. I got up and walked at 7:30. We are still in the heat phase but it is cool early in the morning and later in the evening. I got more of the border removed today and I am about 1/2 done now. I can't believe how tiring it is to hold my arms up to scrape it off. Not pushing myself at the moment but hope it is done by the end of the week.

Pat - Your son will have a lot of work when he gets back. We had a lot of tress that fell over here as we got a lot of rain and wind. We are about to get another set here soon. Glad that you are feeling better.

I have come down with a cough. So I am staying warm. I work tomorrow then off the next two days. My Aunt and I had to put off getting together another week as a friend of hers just had surgery on her foot so my Aunt is going to help her out.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Happy Birthday Sandy. Hope you get to celebrate soon. My son flew back to Billings to see his family this weekend so hoping he is able to make it back to Portland ok. I think his flight leaves early tomorrow. He works all over in the woods in Wash/Ore.

I think I am finally feeling human again. This "bug" really put me down for the count this week. Several folks in our community have had the same issue so guessing it was a bug instead of food poisoning. It has really put me behind in what I had planned for this week. Oh well, I don't think any "fairy" came it to remove the border in my bedroom or clean house for me so guess that is high on my priority list for the coming week.

Having a big storm here with high windy and a lot of rain. Worked last night till midnight. Was glad to have today off to relax and not be out in the weather. Worse of the storm to hit tonight. Excepting 45 mph windy. Not as bad as they thought it would be. We are in our rainy pattern now we will get a break on Tuesday/Wednesday then it will start up again through to Saturday then we get a break till Sunday then the next system comes in.

Will be getting together with my Aunt after this big storm passes to celebrate my Birthday. we just have not had the time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Good Morning:

Well, it nearly killed me but I made Tuscan Kale and Bean soup, a rhubarb pie, and a 9" pie shell that I froze. The flour I bought at Aldi's was difficult to roll out and I'm certain it was because of the gluten content. Anyway, that's behind me now.

I was planning to go to the public library and the university library today, but it's cloudy and I'm not sure I want to go out. At least it's warm....upper 60s.

Hoping you are all well and safe,

I guess fall has really arrived-even down south! We have had the windows open since Sun. night. Doesn't get light here either until 7.

I have been under the weather for 2 days-I think it is food poisoning. Vickie also became ill. We are the only 2 who got ill from eating at the place we play Trivia but can't figure out anything else.

Glad to see you posting again Val. Hope you get an interesting trial to sit on. I haven't actually been chosen for a jury since about 30 yrs ago. That week I was on I actually made it on 2 juries.

I worked on removing the border in the bedroom today-got it about 1/4 done. It is hard to keep my arms up and use the scraper but I plan to break it up over a few days and hopefully can get it done this week.

I even got in a good walk this morning and cleaned a couple of the smaller flower beds for the park. Even did some ironing and should be able to finish that tomorrow.

This evening was Trivia and we found up how dumb we really were! We either knew the answer or we didn't!!

Gail - I still have the business. DH is still here. He has been clean and sober for a year now and has be obeying the rules of the house. I still love my job and I am learning more each day. We have been really busy these last few days more than last year.


I have been busy working and am on my way in this morning. Had one day off last week on Friday, My birthday. I was too tired to do anything and just slept most of the day. I am glad to here that everyone is doing well.


Hope everyone has a great day.

Pat, I'm so happy that Matthew didn't cause you any big trouble. We've been getting a lot (for us) of rain from the edge of the hurricane and it's gotten a lot cooler here all of a sudden. I hope that fall comes back for a little while longer before we really have to do winter...

Sorry for being absent for so long again. I read all of the posts every day but I just haven't felt like I had much to say for a little while. I almost posted a couple of times about a really nice man I had met, but then out of the blue I heard those wonderful words "my girlfriend" so I was kind of glad I hadn't said anything to you guys. I was already trying really hard not to let that friendship be anything in my mind that it really wasn't so I'm okay with things, I'm just telling you about it because it's pretty much the only thing worth mentioning that has happened in my life recently.

Okay, I've got one other thing worth mentioning. I've been on jury duty since the 3rd and will be on it until the 21st. They didn't need me at all last week but when I checked the phone number and web site on Friday they said that there will be several trials starting on Tuesday so I'm going to have to go to the courthouse at an ungodly hour on Tuesday morning when I should really be asleep. Hopefully this will at least be interesting, otherwise I'm probably going to fall asleep in the jury box. emoticon

I hope the new week starts out really well for all of you. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Yes, I think we ladies do have "special" knives. I have one I think we got free many, many years ago when they gave "prizes" at gas stations-I hope it never falls apart!!!

Today is just awesome-the humidity has dropped. This is what we wait for thru the long hot summer.

Good Morning: Pat, so glad you are all right.

My dinner last night turned out especially well and we had a great visit. BTW, my little paring knife was coming apart so I picked up one for $2.69 at the supermarket. It's great. I'm so happy because I use it every day. Funny how such a small thing can make me so happy.

Gail how awesome you are heading to visit your son. Do hope your family are ok in NC. It is nice you have a friend to share a meal with and great conversation.

Sandy hope you get to rest up on your day off.

We are pretty much back to normal here. I went and did my shopping-at W-Mart, Dollar Tree, Aldi and Publix. We got all of our outside things put back out and I put out the park fall decorations again. Glad to have that taken care of.

Hope next week to get back into my normal routines!

Good Morning:

I bought a flight to visit my son and his family in Charlotte, NC at the end of the month. Really looking forward to it. My daughter-in-law is a doll and I always feel welcome. Unfortunately, I won't be seeing my granddaughter who is at Chapel Hill. Since I will only be there for a long weekend, I didn't think I had it in me to go on a 6+ hour RT of a drive from Charlotte to Chapel Hill. Another time. Maybe I'll get my granddaughter to visit me.

Having a friend to dinner today and am looking forward to it. Will be making home made cheese and spinach stuffed manicotti. The last time she was here we had lunch and visited for 6 hours! So nice to find someone to talk to about interesting things.

Hoping you all stay safe and enjoy the weekend.

Pat: What a relief you are all right. I have a friend in south FL and he too was spared from catastrophic damage.

Sandy: So glad you have a day off. Do you still like your job, or is it too much for you? What is happening with your business? Did you sell it? And what about DH, is he out of the house and on his own now?

Nan: We too have shorter days. Boy, you can really tell the difference. I took down my potted tomato plant the other day and will be transplanting my parsley and basil plants into small pots so that I can keep them indoors during the winter.

Pat - I am so glad to hear that you didn't have too much damage. I was so worried about you.


This was my first day off in about 6 days . I go in tomorrow and work next 3 days and then off. I have been really tired so been sleeping a lot.

Hope everyone has a safe weekend.

Thanks Gail. Florida really was blessed-Matthew zigged a bit to the east and it spared us catastrophic damage. Since we are inland we fared very good-we had a few gusts of 60+ MPH winds and received about 2 inches of rain. There is quite a bit of debris from the palms and trees and a couple of sections of fence were blown down so I think we fared quite well. Had we not prepared and left items out, we could have had a lot more damage from blowing debris.
I think by tomorrow we will be able to start cleanup.

Finished our storm prep this morning and starting to get rain bands coming in now. The worst is to hit tonight-of course it will be in the dark!! Hopefully we are out of the worst of the storm but many, many people are in the path so keep them in your prayers.

Back from the beach-decided we needed to head home before things got bad. We have spent the afternoon trying to get ready for Matthew. We will work more tomorrow.

Well my jury duty started today, and I won't be needed for the first 2 days of my service. That actually makes my life a little simpler. But I still have to call a phone number or check a web site every evening until my service ends on the 21st of the month. I'll be serving in district court so maybe I'll get to sit on a jury for an interesting trial. Guess we'll see...

We suddenly went from pretty warm to quite cool here. I guess fall has arrived, with winter on its heels. I suspect that we may have more of a winter than we normally do around here because we had a pretty easy and wet summer. So this year you didn't have to listen to me complain about our heat so much...but you're probably going to hear me crying about the cold a lot. emoticon

I hope the new month is starting out well for the rest of you. emoticon



There was much rejoicing!

Tonight at sundown the Jewish New Year begins. Helena, my daughter called me this morning and said she and her husband, Reed, wanted to take me to dinner. So nice. It was quite unexpected.

Hope this New Year brings us all good health, peace and joy.
