KIM, GOOD NEWS ON THE FOOT--AREN'T THOSE COMPRESSION SOCKS A PAIN? MY DH HAS TO WEAR THEM NOW AND THEY ARE A PAIN TO GET ON AND OFF.
I HAVE PT THIS MORNING, THEN I NEED TO FINISH CUTTING GRASS AND DO THE WEED WHACKING. A LOAD OF LAUNDRY IS IN--WE MIGHT GET THUNDER STORMS THIS WEEKEND BUT THE END OF NEXT WEEK LOOKS SOOOO PLEASANT---LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. AND I AM GLAD TO HAVE A 3 DAY WEEKEND!
HAVE A GOOD ONE----OUR GARDENS ARE ABOUT DONE AND KNOW WE ALL ARE THINKING OF FALL PLANTS AND CLEARING OUT OUR GARDEN BEDS---TIME TO START PLANNING.

No more bandages! Just my compression stockings & surgical shoe. Bending the big toe (by bf) manually at the first joint, & cross massaging over both incisions (going perpendicular to the incisions). Next doc visit in 2 weeks.

I guess I should start this post with introducing myself too. LOL

STILL CRAZY HERE WITH THE FOLKS BUT i GUESS THAT IS THE WAY IS GOING TO BE FOR A WHILE!

NANCY WIN BIG AT THE CASINO. HAVE YOU SEEN THOSE GARDEN HOSES ADVERTISED THAT SHRINK UP TO FIT IN YOUR POCKET? tHEN WHEN YOU TURN ON THE WATER THEY STRETCH ALL OUT AGAIN.

LECATES I SURE HOPE THEY CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR SCHEDULE.

LYNN THOSE BUGS SOUND HORRIBLE. I WOULD BE OUT THERE SMASHING THEM FOR SURE.

JOY WHEN IS THE KNEE SURGERY? GOOD IDEA TO DO ONE AT A TIME. MY FRIEND HAD IT DONE AND THE 1 ST ONE WENT SO WELL HE COULD NOT WAIT FOR THE 2ND ONE. HE WAS IN PAIN FOR YEARS.

JUST HAD A CALL THAT CAME UP AS RESTRICTED AND WAS A GUY WHO COULD BARELY SPEAK ENGLISH. SAID HE GOT A REPORT FROM HIS COMPANYS' WEBSITE THAT MY BFS' COMPUTER WAS GETTING VIRUS'S FROM THEIR WEBSITE AND AS ME BEING MY BFS' WIFE THAT HE COULD TALK ME THROUGH THESE ISSUES. TOLD ME TO GO AHEAD AND TURN ON THE COMPUTER AND JUST GIVE HIM SOME NUMBERS FOR THE PROGRAMMING WE USE AND IT COULD CLEAR EVERYTHING UP. lmao! FOR 1, I AM NOT MARRIED. 2 MY BF HAS NO PC AND WOULD NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO TURN ONE ON IF HIS LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. 3, IF ANYONE TOLD HIM HE HAD A VIRUS HE WOULD REPLY NO I FEEL FINE. 4, EVEN IF THIS CALLER LEARNED HOW TO SPEAK ENGLISH, I WOULD NOT GIVE HIM INFORMATION ON MY PC. THE ONLY THING HE WANTED TO CLEAR UP WAS PERSONAL BANKING INFO SO HE COULD CLEAR IT OUT!!! HOW DO THESE PEOPLE EVEN GET YOUR CELL PHONE #? I AM ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST.

BEEN REALLY HOT AND DRY HERE. WE GOT A THUNDERSTORM LAST NIGHT AND LUCKILY IT POURED BEFORE THE LIGHTNING CAME. I CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE GRASS ALREADY. SUPPOSED TO STAY REALLY HOT AND MUGGY FOR ANOTHER WEEK

MY TIME HERE IS UP FOR NOW. HOPE TO BE BACK SOONER. emoticon

MORNING EVERYONE ... BEAUTIFUL DAY SO FAR ... SUPPOSED TO GET TO 80° AND HUMID THIS AFTERNOON ... POSSIBLE THUNDER STORMS IN THE EVENING. WE HAD A VERY HEAVY RAIN HER LAST EVENING ... BEAUTIFUL ROLL CLOUDS TO SEE ... LEARNED THEY ARE NOT TO WORRY ABOUT LIKE SHELF CLOUDS. I THINK JOY GOT A LOT MORE RAIN THAN WE DID WHEN THE SECOND WAVE CAME THROUGH ... THAT MISSED US, BUT I THINK IT HIT HER.

TOMATO PLANTS ARE STILL DOING GOOD ... NO NEW HORN-WORMS. NO LEAF DAMAGE TO BE FOUND. LOOKS LIKE THOSE PARASITIC WASPS ARE WORKING.

EVELYN ... NOT QUITE READY HERE TO CUT DOWN MY PLANTS ... THERE ARE A FEW THAT I COULD TAKE CARE OF BUT THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME THIS FALL FOR THAT. HUBBY WILL LOVE ATTACKING MY GARDEN ... HE USUALLY TRIES TO MOW EVERYTHING DOWN. I HAVE TO MARK THE THINGS HE CAN'T GO NEAR!!! THIS YEAR I'LL BE POTTING UP A LOT OF EXTRAS THAT I THIN OUT ... THEY WILL GO TO OUR PLANT SALE NEXT YEAR. I'LL HAVE TO MARK EACH DAY-LILY POT SO I CAN PUT THE CORRECT NAME AND PICTURE WITH THE PLANT NEXT SPRING ... I THINK I HAVE AT LEAST 2 OR 3 FANS TO SEPARATE OUT OF ALL 14 PLANTS.

NANCY ... HAVE A GREAT DAY AT THE CASINO ... WE ALWAYS HAVE FUN WHEN WE GO ... WOULD BE NICE TO SEE A BIG WIN FOR YOU!!! I SURE HOPE YOU GET BETTER CO-OPERATION FROM YOUR MANAGEMENT ... IF THEY WANT PEOPLE TO BE MORE HELPFUL THEY SHOULD LEARN TO BE MORE VOLUNTEER FRIENDLY!!!

LECATES ... SURE HOPE THIS WEEK IS GOING BETTER FOR YOU AT SCHOOL ... I KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT CAN BE WHEN YOU ARE WORKING WITH SOMEONE THAT YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH. ONE OF MY CHILD DEVELOPMENT JOBS WAS AWFUL WHEN I HAD AN ADHD TEACHER THAT NEVER STOPPED TALKING OR MOVING AROUND, AND HAD TO HAVE EVERYTHING HER WAY ... SHE WOULD PLAN AT LEAST 3 ACTIVITIES BEYOND THE TIME ALLOWED. AFTER A MONTH I WOULD DRIVE HOME IN TEARS EVERY DAY. WE WORKED WITH OUR DIRECTOR AND SHE CEDED TO LET ME HAVE SOME PROJECTS I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR AND THAT HELPED ... IT WAS NICE TO BE IN CONTROL OF SOMETHING. HER OTHER BIG PROBLEM WAS CRITICIZING ME IN FRONT OF PARENTS AND STUDENTS ... USUALLY UNWARRANTED. IT TOOK ALL I HAD TO HOLD MY TONGUE, BUT I WASN'T GOING TO STOOP TO HER LEVEL.

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE ... SURE HOPE THIS SUMMER WEATHER LASTS FOR A WHILE ... WE SHOULD GET THROUGH THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND WITH BEAUTIFUL PICNIC FRIENDLY WEATHER.

HI ALL ... WHAT AN AFTERNOON AND EVENING I HAD YESTERDAY ... WENT TO MOM'S FOR CHURCH IN THE AFTERNOON AND AFTER I SIGNED IN TO HER PLACE I WAS HIT WITH AN HORRIFIC URGE TO GO ... KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO MAKE IT TO HER APARTMENT! SO I STOPPED AT A BATHROOM ALONG THE WAY (ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE IT THERE EITHER). ALL 'H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS' BROKE LOOSE ... i MANAGED TO MAKE IT THROUGH CHURCH WITH ONLY ONE TRIP TO THE BATHROOM ... THEN STOPPED AGAIN BEFORE LEAVING FOR HOME. ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE IT HOME. THE REST OF THE AFTERNOON AND MOST OF THE EVENING I WAS EITHER ON THE POT OR SLEEPING! NOT SURE IF IT WAS THE DEEP FRIED FOODS I HAD AT THE PICNIC OR A BOUT OF THE FLU (THAT'S GOING AROUND). I FEEL A WHOLE LOT BETTER THIS MORNING, AND SURE HOPE MY EVENING OUT TO DINNER WITH OUR NEIGHBOR'S THIS EVENING IS UNEVENTFUL. I'LL HAVE TO REALLY BE CAREFUL WHAT I EAT TONIGHT.

NANCY ... LOL ... THE VALLEY WAS HERE 43 YEARS AGO WHEN WE MOVED IN ... I TRIED TO REMOVE IT SEVERAL TIMES, BUT FINALLY DECIDED TO MAKE IT WORK FOR ME! NOW THE LILY OF THE VALLEY AND GOOSE-NECK LOOSESTRIFE ARE MY FILLERS IN THE GARDEN ... I LOVE THEM BUT THEY ARE QUITE INVASIVE. IT WORKS OUT WELL IN AREAS I'M NOT READY TO REVAMP YET. THE LILY OF THE VALLEY GIVES ME A WONDERFUL FRAGRANCE THROUGHOUT MY YARD IN LATE SPRING ... AND THE GOOSENECKS GIVE ME A SEA OF WHITE FOR SEVERAL WEEKS IN MID SUMMER. IF I'M OUT SHOPPING AND FIND SOMETHING ELSE I REALLY LIKE I CAN GET IT AND KNOW THAT I CAN MAKE ROOM FOR IT. I NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT LOSING THE LILY OF VALLEY OR THE GOOSENECK!

PENNY ... I HEARD ABOUT MARIGOLDS YEARS AGO ... TRIED THEM BUT THEY NEVER SEEMED TO KEEP OUT PESTS ... AT LEAST NOT THE ANIMAL KIND. ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO WORK ON BUGS TOO??? IF SO I'LL HAVE TO TRY THAT AGAIN. I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY NEW HORNWORMS OR DAMAGE TO MY TOMATO PLANTS FOR A COUPLE DAYS ... I SURE HOPE THAT IS A GOOD SIGN ... HOWEVER I WON'T STOP WATCHING,

TIME TO GET READY FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD SUPPER ...

OK. I WAS TOLD TO PLANT MARIGOLDS AROUND MY GARDEN & I WOULDN'T HAVE NAY PESTS. DH HATES THE SMELL OF THEM BUT I REALLY LIKE THEM. LONG STORY SHORT, WE PLANTED AROUND THE ENTIRE GARDEN & EVERY YEAR WE DO THIS. NO PESTS AT ALL - EXCEPT FOR A BIRD OR TWO. REALLY. NOW I PLANT THEM ALL OVER THE YARD. SINCE WE'VE PUT UP 3 BIRD STATIONS (1 IN FRONT, 1 TO THE SIDE & 1 IN BACK WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANY GRASS HOPPERS EITHER. WE ALSO DIDN'T HAVE ANY OF THOSE LARGE YELLOW GARDEN SPIDERS. DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I REALLY LIKE THEM. BUTTERFLYS ARE ALL OVER ALL THE BUTTERFLY BUSHES THIS YEAR. I STARTED OUT WITH A ROW (DIFFERENT COLORS) ALONG THE BACK PATIO FENCE BUT HAVE TRANSFERED SOME ALL OVER THE YAR D. WE'VE BEEN WEEDING/PRUNING IRIS. HAVE THE BACK PATIO & ABOUT HALF THE FRONT DONE. STILL HAVE HALF THE FRONT & THE ENTIRE SIDE (4 LARGE FLOWER BEDS( TO DO. IT'S SO DRY THAT THE WEEDS AREN'T GROWING BACK NEAR AS FAST AS THEY DID. THE WEATHERMEN ARE SAYING THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE THE HOTEST WEEK OF THE SUMMER. THE HUMITIY IS REALLY HIGH SO WE GO OUT AT 8 & WORK FOR ONLY A COUPLE OF HOURS. SO FAR WE HAVE 36 PTS OF SALSA CANNED, FROZE SOME GREEN BEANS & SQUASH. BILL'S MAKING TOMATO SAUCE TODAY. HE'S GOING TO CAN IT INSTEAD OF FREEZING IT.

JUST CHECK THE SIDE EFFECT OF ONE OF THE NEW MEDS - cORDARONE - LUNG DAMAGE, LIVER DAMAGE, WORSE HEARTBEAT PROBLEMS & THYROID PROBLEMS. THE OTHER ONE - XAREL- IS A BLOOD THINNER. & HAS A SIDE EFFECT OF VISION PROBLEMS. I SEE MY REG DOCTOR TOMORROW. I'M HOPING THAT HE'LL CHANGE MY MEDS BACK. I'M THINKING IF CHANGING TO BILL'S HEART SPECIALIST.

I DO WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR COMMENTS. YOU ALL DON'T MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I'M OVER RESPONDING. THAT MEANS A LOT.

TIME TO WASH THE CANNING JARS. BILL'S DOING THE MOST.

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD & SAFE DAY!

LYNN. ISN'T YOUR LILY OF THE VALLEY INVASIVE? I HAD BOUGHT A PLANT YEARS AGO AND WAS FOREVER PULLING OUT AND GIVING AWAY, BUT I DID LOVE MY PLANT.

LECATES WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT I WAS NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO LEAVE MY GARDEN FORK AMONGST THE FLOWERS . EVEN OVERNIGHT, SOMEONE ALWAYS TOOK IT INSIDE, BET THEY WILL SAY THAT THE HOSE CANNOT BE LEFT OUTSIDE, IT WOULD HAVE TO COME IN, WHATEVER

IN THE SPRING THE ADMINISTRATOR HAD A YOUNG GUY WORKING PART TIME AND SHE TOLD HIM TO PULL EVERYTHING OUT, WELL HE DID , ALL THE RUDBECKIA PLANTS,, WHEN ALL THAT HAD TO BE DONE WAS CUT THEM BACK TO 2 INCHES, ALL SUMMER THAT HAS BEEN A WICKED AREA FOR WEEDS, SHE WANT TO PLANT MORE IN SEPTEMBER AND HAS ASKED ME TO DO THEM WITH HER, THIS MAY BE MY CHANCE TO GET A HOSE LEFT OUTSIDE FOR A WHILE.. THESE PLANTS WILL NEED TO BE WATERED.

WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE TODAY, LOW 70'S AND A GOOD BREEZE,, RAIN ON THE WAY FOR TOMORROW

HAVE A QUESTION, WILL ROSES SURVIVE OVER THE WINTER IN POTS, MINE WERE ALWAYS IN THE GROUBD SO I WONDER,

HI ALL ... HAD A GREAT TIME AT OUR ELKS PICNIC YESTERDAY AFTERNOON ... SURE WAS NICE TO RELAX AND ENJOY FRIENDS INSTEAD OF WORKING IT THIS YEAR.
THE DAY WAS WONDERFUL ... MID 70'S WITH A NICE BREEZE MOST OF THE DAY.

STILL NOT FINDING TOO MUCH DAMAGE FROM MY HORN-WORMS ... FOUND SOME EGGS YESTERDAY AND GOT RID OF THEM ... I'LL KEEP CHECKING TO HOPEFULLY STAY AHEAD OF THEM.

NEXT YEAR I HAVE TO WORK ON GETTING MORE BLOOMING FLOWERS ALL SUMMER LONG. I HAVE LOTS OF FLOWERS BLOOMING UNTIL ABOUT MID JULY, THEN IT IS HIT AND MISS THROUGHOUT MY GARDEN ... I DO HAVE RUDBECKIA IN BLOOM ... AND A FEW OF THE HOSTA'S ... EVEN HAVE A COUPLE RE-BLOOMS ON MY STELLA. SOON MY MUMS WILL BE STARTING, BUT UNTIL THEN THERE WON'T BE MUCH OF ANYTHING.

i HAVE ONE SECTION THAT I WILL BE DIGGING OUT BEFORE WINTER ... THAT WILL BE MY NEW SECTION FOR NEXT YEAR. I'LL KEEP MY HOSTA AND MY BLEEDING HEART ... AND THE DAYLILY BORDER IN THE FRONT ... THE REST WILL HAVE TO GO.

MY GOOSE NECKS AND LILY OF THE VALLEY CAN GO IN POTS TO BE READY FOR OUR PLANT SALE IN THE SPRING ...

THINK I'LL GO RUN SOME ERRANDS ... HAVE TO GET A FEW THINGS FOR MOM BEFORE I HEAD OVER TO HER PLACE FOR CHURCH THIS AFTERNOON ...

ENJOY THE DAY ...

NANCY, ASK FOR A HOSE---ALL THEY DO IS SAY NO. I WOULD LOVE THOSE TEMPS AT NIGHT---I TURNED THE AC BACK OFF WHEN I GOT HOME FROM BABY SHOWER---I USED YOUR IDEA OF THE CLOTHES LINE AND PUTTING THE ITEMS ON THAT---EVERYONE THOUGHT THAT WAS JUST THE NEATEST IDEA.

GOOD AFTERNOON ALL, WELL NEARLY EVENING emoticon

WE GOT REAL COOL LAST NIGHT (49f) GOOD SLEEPING WEATHER, WAS LOOKING FOR A COVER AT ABOUT 2am
FINISHED TAKING THE SLEEVES OUT OF THE JACKET FOR MY GRAND SON AND WENT WITH MY DAUGHTER TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP THAT HAS INDUSTRIAL MACHINES, I COULD NOT SEE MY LITTLE MACHINE GOING THROUGHT 8 THICKNESS OF JEAN, SEAMS WE ALL FRENCH SEAMS SO THAT MADE FOR A THICK SEAM.

THEN WENT TO WALMART AS I NEEDED A NEW COFFEE MAKER, MINE WAS REALLY GETTING HARD TO TURN ON AND OFF AND THEN AS I WASHED THE POT ,, THE LID CAME OFF OF THE POT AND LANDED UP N THE ELEMENT IN THE DISHWASHER. SO GOOD BYE LID TO THE CARAFE,

TURNED OUT TO BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE TODAY, TEMPERATURES JN THE 70'S AND A LIGHT BREEZE, I LOVE THIS WEATHER

LEGATES HOPE YOU HAVE A BETTER WEEK NEXT WEEK.

PULLED A LOT OF WEEDS OUT FRONT OF THE BUILDING,,, I WALKED KIRBY, GOT BACK HERE AND HE SLEPT IN THE GRASS AS I PULLED WEEDS,, THEY HAVE BIG POTS WITH PETUNIAS IN, THE WEEDS WERE ONLY ABOUT 18 INCHES HIGH, AT LEAST NOW WE CAN SEE THE FLOWERS. THERE ARE OTHERS TO DO BUT WHAT IS THE USE OF PLANTING FLOWERS TO WATCH THEM DIE OF THIRST, THE SPRINKLERS HAVE NOT BEEN WORKING EXCEPT IN ONE AREA FOR A LONG TIME... THERE IS A FAUCET ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING BUT NO HOSE,

WELL TIME TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT
HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW EVERYONE AND TAKE CARE emoticon

JOY, THE ONE-ON-ONE WOULD BE WORSE---HIS MOM HAS ALREADY SUED THE SCHOOL SYSTEM 2X AND WON ONE CASE FOR $100,000. BUT I AM NOT HAPPY WITH MY SCHEDULE BUT WILL SEE HOW IT GOES---I MIGHT JUST TAKE SOME TIME OFF IF IT GETS TOO BAD---ESP. IF DH HAS TO HAVE SURGERY ON HIS LEG--WILL KNOW MORE ABOUT THAT ON SEPT. 11. HOPING THINGS WILL CHANGE---BUT IN HER CLASSES I WILL HAVE A LOT OF KIDS TO HELP---ONE CLASS IS JUST 10 KIDS BUT 9 OF THEM ARE MINE---TALK ABOUT A CHALLENGE---ANOTHER CLASS OF 15 AND ABOUT HALF ARE MINE.

NO NOTICES AGAIN. HMMM. GUESS IT'S TIME TO UNCHECK AND RECHECK AGAIN.

LOOKS REALLY NICE OUT. SUPPOSED TO GET WARM LATER, BUT RIGHT NOW IT'S COMFORTABLE.

SO HOW ARE YOU MAKING OUT AT SCHOOL LECATES? SOUNDS MISERABLE TO ME. TOO BAD THE YOUNG MAN YOU SHOULD HAVE HAD AS A ONE-ON-ONE DIDN'T WORK OUT. WONDER WHY THE PARENTS INSISTED ON A MALE. THEY SHOULD HAVE INSISTED ON THE BEST ONE FOR THEIR CHILD, MALE OR FEMALE.

WE WERE ASKED TO GO SOMEWHERE THIS WEEKEND, BUT THE COUPLE WASN'T SURE IF IT WAS GOING TO BE TODAY OR TOMORROW. AS OF RIGHT NOW, I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING. MAYBE THEY WENT WITHOUT US SINCE DH HAS TO WORK UNTIL 1. I DON'T MIND SPUR OF THE MOMENT, BUT WHEN SOMETHING'S BEEN DISCUSSED FOR SEVERAL DAYS, I'D REALLY LIKE TO KNOW AT LEAST "WHEN". OH WELL.

NANCY, I HAVE TO HAVE MY KNEES REPLACED. JUST DOING ONE RIGHT NOW, SO THAT I CAN WALK A LITTLE BETTER WITH A LOT LESS PAIN, AND I'LL DECIDE NEXT YEAR IF I'M GOING TO DO THE OTHER.

GOT ON THE SCALES THIS MORNING, AND I'VE GAINED ABOUT 2 1/2 LBS. HAVE TO WORK THIS WEEKEND TO GET IT OFF... WANTED TO LOSE 5 BEFORE THE FIRST WEEKEND OF SEPT, BUT I SEEM TO BE GOING THE WRONG WAY. TIME TO GET BACK ON THE WAGON..

I THINK MY WASHER IS ON IT'S LAST LEGS. IT'S ALMOST 20 YEARS OLD AND I'VE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT UNTIL LATELY. JUST WHAT I WANT TO DO, BUY A NEW WASHER AND DRYER....IT'S ACTING UP TOO, BUT NOT AS BAD AS THE WASHER.... THAT BEING SAID, GUESS I'LL GO CHECK AND SEE WHY THE WASHER ISN'T WASHING.....EVERYONE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND....

EVELYN, WE HAVE A LOT OF KIDS WHO NEED A LOT OF EXTRA HELP AND WITH CLASSROOM SIZES BEING LARGE FOR THE MOST PART, ONE PERSON CANNOT DO IT ALL.
BEAUTIFUL MORNING HERE---TURNED OFF THE AC AS THE TEMP OUTSIDE IS 60 DEGREES---MIGHT GO WALK IN THE PARK THIS MORNING BY MYSELF---MY WALKING BUDDY HAS A GUEST FOR A WEEK SO WE WON'T BE WALKING TOGETHER. THEN A BABY SHOWER TO ATTEND THIS AFTERNOON.
ENJOY YOUR FLOWERS AND OTHER PLANTS---SOON IT WILL BE TIME TO PUT IN THE FALL PLANTS.

LECATES ; SORRY ABOUT YOUR SHOOL SCHEDULE. WHY DO THEY NEED EXTRA HELP IN THE CLASS ROOM ANYWAY. AT THAT AGE ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THE JOB.

WE GOT A BAD RAIN STROM HERE LAST NIGHT. SO FAR NO RAIN TODAY. EVELYN

START BY THE DOING WHAT'S NECESSARY, THEN WHAT'S POSSIBLE, AND SUDDENLY YOU ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE.

OH, SO WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER ---LOL--WELCOME BACK, JOY. SEEMS KIND OF DUMB THAT YOU CANNOT GO GET A DRINK, ETC WHILE SHE IS BACK THERE---GUESS THEY DON'T WANT THEM HANGING AROUND AFTER RELEASED.
NANCY, SHE IS GROWING UP TOO QUICK---JUST LIKE THE BOYS DID!
LYNN, HOPE YOU GET THEM ALL!
NO CHANGE IN MY SCHEDULE AND I AM JUST BUMMED---THINKING OF GOING TO THE PRINCIPAL AND IF IT IS AS BAD AS I THINK, I MIGHT JUST GO BACK TO SUBBING AND QUIT THIS JOB---THAT IS HOW BAD I DO NOT WANT TO DO HER CLASSES. I HAVEN'T EVEN GONE UP TO THE ROOM TO SEE HER.

MORNING ALL ... GOT OUT EARLY THIS MORNING TO CHECK MY TOMATO PLANTS FOR THOSE PESKY HORN-WORMS ... FOUND 3 MORE, AND THIS TIME THERE IS NOTICEABLE LEAF DAMAGE ... THE BRANCHES THEY ATTACKED STILL LOOK HEALTHY, THEY JUST DON'T HAVE ANY LEAVES. I POSTED PICTURES OF THE CULPRITS ... I'LL BE CHECKING ALL DAY TO SEE IF I FIND MORE ... DROWNED 2 ... BUT ONE GETS TO STAY ON THE PLANT BECAUSE IT HAS PARASITIC WASP LARVAE BURROWED INTO IT AND IS PROBABLY DONE DOING DAMAGE. WHEN THE WASPS HATCH THEY WILL ATTACK OTHER HORN-WORMS.

JOY ... NEVER HEARD OF THAT RULE IN A SURGERY CENTER! DAN USED TO DROP ME OFF AND COME BACK TO GET ME LATER. A COUPLE TIMES HE GOT MOM TO BE THERE FOR ME ... WHEN I HAD MY KNEES SCOPED. MAYBE IT IS DIFFERENT NOW ... I HAVEN'T BEEN TO ONE FOR 7 YEARS!!!

LECATES ... I SURE HOPE DAY TWO GOES BETTER THAN DAY ONE! IF NOT, AT LEAST YOU WILL HAVE THE WEEKEND FOR R/R WHEN IT'S OVER.

HEADING OUT TO THE POLISH FESTIVAL WITH FRIENDS THIS EVENING ... D AND HER HUBBY AND HER IN-LAWS WORK IT ALL WEEKEND ... WE ALWAYS HAVE FUN, AND REALLY ENJOY THE GREAT FOOD ... EVEN ENJOY LISTENING TO THE POLKA MUSIC. AND I LOVE TO BUY CHINESE AUCTION TICKETS, AND THEY HAVE A PHENOMENAL BASKET RAFFLE TOO! I'VE NEVER WON ANYTHING ... MAYBE THIS WILL BE MY YEAR! LOL

TOMORROW IS OUR ELKS FAMILY PICNIC ... WE AREN'T WORKING THIS YEAR ... WE PLAN TO JUST ENJOY!

HAVE A GREAT DAY / WEEKEND EVERYONE!

HELLO. MY NAME IS JOY....I'VE BEEN AWOL FOR A COUPLE WEEKS, I THINK! NO INTERNET FOR A FEW DAYS, NO NOTICES FOR EVEN LONGER, AND NO TIME TO SNEAK IN THE BACK DOOR!! ANYONE MISS ME? LOL

THE HORNWORMS I HAD ON MY 'MATERS LAST YEAR WERE HUGE! BET THEY WERE 5 OR 6 INCHES LONG, AND FAT LITTLE (?) BUGGERS. SQUASHED REALLY WELL IN THE DRIVEWAY... AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT I WAS TOLD THEY WERE. FOUND ABOUT 6 OF THEM ON ALL THE PLANTS.

I'VE BEEN UP SINCE 5, IT'S NOW 8:15, AND I'M READY FOR A NAP. AM SITTING IN ASHTABULA AT A SURGERY CENTER, WHILE A FRIEND IS HAVING A PROCEDURE DONE. THOUGHT SHE'D BE DONE ABOUT 10. WEIRD RULE HERE: IF I LEAVE TO EVEN GO GET SOMETHING TO DRINK, THEY CANCEL HER SURGERY. WONDER WHAT THEY DO IF SOMEONE IS HALF WAY THRU THEIR PROCEDURE WHEN THE DRIVER LEAVES THE BUILDING....

SURGERY ON MY KNEE IS SCHEDULED FOR THE END OF OCTOBER. NERVOUS ALREADY. WENT TO THE DR. YESTERDAY TO FIND OUT WHY I'VE BEEN FEELING SO ROTTEN. HE CHANGED ONE OF MY MEDS, AND I'M WEANING OFF ANOTHER. HE TOOK BLOOD, AND I HAVE TO GO BACK IN 2 TO 3 WEEKS TO SEE HOW I FEEL THEN, AND WHAT[S GOING ON. SAID HE'D CALL ME IF THE BLOOD WORK SHOWED ANYTHING IMMEDIATE.

LADY SITTING NEXT TO ME IS A SMOKER....PHEW...... emoticon

IS REAGANN EXCITED TO BE GOING TO SCHOOL? GOING TO BE ABIG CHANGE FOR HER! HOPE SHE LOVES IT. OUR GANG IS ABOUT 50/50. SOME ARE EXCITED, SOME NOT READY FOR SUMMER TO BE OVER. AND OF COURSE, THE TEMPS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE 80'S AND MUGGY NEXT WEEK FOR THEM.... emoticon

WILSON, GLAD YOUR DAD IS WHERE HE NEEDS TO BE. DOESN'T SOUND GOOD. HOPE THE TREATMENTS WORK WELL. I TOO WOULD LIKE ONE OF PERT'S CDS.

GUESS I'LL TRY THE BACK DOOR FOR ANOTHER TEAM, AND SEE WHAT TROUBLE I CAN GET INTO. GLAD TO BE BACK...

NOT SO GREAT A DAY---FIRST OFF I COULD NOT LOG INTO THE COMPUTER TO CHECK MY EMAILS TO SEE WHERE I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE---THEN COULD NOT FIND THE TECH FOR HELP---THEN GOT AN ALL CALL FOR THE MEETING I NEEDED TO BE IN---IT WAS OKAY TIL I GOT MY SCHEDULE---SURE HOPING I CAN GET IT CHANGED---FIRST PERIOD US HISTORY WITH A TEACHER I LOVE TO WORK WITH, 2ND PERIOD A DIFFERENT TEACHER BUT SAME SUBJECT---THAT IS OKAY AS I WORKED WITH HIM LAST YEAR AND AT LEAST IT IS A DIFFERENT TEACHER---THEN IT IS DOWNHILL ON A FAST LUGE---3RD AND 4TH AND 7TH PERIOD WITH THE SAME SCIENCE TEACHER I HAD LAST YEAR 7TH PERIOD FOR THE SAME SUBJECT---AND SHE DOES NOT CONTROL HER CLASSROOM AND CANNOT TEACH THE SUBJECT AT A LEVEL THE KIDS CAN UNDERSTAND---AND I WILL GO CRAZY WITH THE SAME STUFF FOR 3 PERIODS---5TH IS OKAY---DRR WHICH MEANS I GET SOME COMPUTER TIME AND 6TH IS ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE WITH ANOTHER TEACHER WHO HAS LITTLE CLASS CONTROL BUT AT LEAST A DIFFERENT SUBJECT. I FEEL LIKE I AM UNDER PUNISHMENT WITH THIS SCHEDULE---HOPING I CAN GET ONE OF THOSE SCIENCE CLASSES SWITCHED TO AN ALG. 2 CLASS---FINGERS CROSSED FOR THAT.
I ALMOST DON'T WANT TO GO IN WITH THIS SCHEDULE!
THEN SHARI CALLED ME WHILE I WAS AT EYE DOC WITH SCHOOL PROBLEMS---SHE GOT A LETTER SAYING REAGANN WAS NOT GOING TO PRESCHOOL---BUT THE SCHOOL HAD SAID ON PHONE YESTERDAY SHE WAS GOING---AND SHE COULD NOT GET ANSWERS---I WENT OVER AFTER I GOT OUT OF DOCTOR'S SO I COULD SEE THE LETTER---WHILE I WAS THERE THE PRINCIPAL OF THE SCHOOL CALLED AND SAID THERE WAS A MISTAKE SO REAGANN WILL START SCHOOL NEXT THURSDAY.
SO AS YOU CAN SEE, IT WAS JUST NOT A GREAT START TO THE SCHOOL YEAR!

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD DAY ... NICE HERE. WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GET RAIN ... EVEN THE RADAR SHOWED A HUGE PATCH THAT SHOULDN'T HAVE MISSED US, BUT IT DID! THAT MEANS TOMORROW I'LL HAVE TO WATER AGAIN.

NANCY ... HORN-WORMS ARE UGLY LITTLE BUGS THAT FEAST ON TOMATO PLANTS THEN MAKE A COCOON ... WITH LUCK PARASITIC WASPS BURROW INTO THE COCOON AND LAY THEIR OWN LARVAE AND WHEN THEY HATCH THEY ATTACK OTHER HORN-WORMS. I THINK I GOT LUCKY ... IT HAS BEEN ABOUT A WEEK SINCE I SAW MY LARVAE INFESTED COCOON AND THERE AREN'T ANY MORE ON MY PLANTS.

PENNY ... I KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT CAN BE WHEN TOO MANY DRS GET INVOLVED ... I HAVE BEEN TAKING NOTES TO THE DR FOR YEARS. I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE A GREAT DR THAT DOES SPEAK MY LANGUAGE. I'VE BEEN TAKING MOM TO HER DR FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND GO IN WITH HER ... SHE USED TO WRITE HER OWN NOTES, BUT USUALLY FORGETS TO WRITE THINGS DOWN ... NOW SHE HAS HER NOTES, AND I HAVE A SET OF MY OWN ... WORKS OUT QUITE WELL!! I'M NOT AS FOND OF HER DR AS I AM MINE. FUNNY THING IS ... ONE OF OUR HOSPITAL SYSTEMS JOINED UP WITH UPMC FROM PITTSBURGH AND WHEN MY DR CHANGED TO A PART-TIME PRACTICE A YEAR AGO THEY PAIRED HIM UP WITH MOM'S DR. I TOLD HIM WHEN HE RETIRES ALTOGETHER HE BETTER GIVE ME THE NAME OF A GOOD DR BECAUSE I WASN'T GOING TO SEE MOMS!!! HE CHUCKLED AND GAVE ME THE ONE HE FEELS IS THE BEST IN THEIR OFFICE ... AT LEAST IF I HAVE A PROBLEM ON A DAY HE ISN'T THERE I KNOW WHO TO ASK FOR.

WILSON ... GLAD YOU DAD IS GETTING TREATMENT ... HOPE ALL WORKS OUT WELL. MERSA CAN BE QUITE A PROBLEM. I'M EXCITED ABOUT PERT ... I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR HER CD ... YOU WILL HAVE TO LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN BUY A COPY ... HOPEFULLY AN AUTOGRAPHED COPY! LOL

LECATES ... HOW WAS THE FIRST DAY BACK? HOPE YOUR YEAR GOES WELL, AND FAST! KEEP THINKING ABOUT RETIREMENT ... IT IS WONDERFUL!!

HAVE TO GET BUSY WITH TAIL END OF A COUPLE PROJECTS I HAVE GOING ... NITE ALL ...

I HAVE TAKEN QUESTIONS ON PAPER FOR YEARS. WHENEVER YOU GET TO THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE YOU TEND TO FORGET AND WHEN YOU LEAVE YOU REALIZE THAT THERE WAS ANOTHER QUESTION, ON PAPER YOU ASK THEM ALL. AND I ALWAYS TELL THE DOCTOR TO TALK MY LANGUAGE, THEY KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN... MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN A RN, FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND SHE STILL TRIES TO TALK DOC TALK TO ME, CRAP TALK MY LANGUAGE PLEASE.

IT IS RAINING HERE THIS MORNING AND THE DOG DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO GO OUT, HE PEED A DOZEN TIMES UNDER THE COVERED PART OF THE DRIVEWAY BUT DIDN'T WANT TO GO ANY FURTHER, WILL HAVE TO WAIT TILL IT STOPS RAINING AND GO AGAIN

GOOD DAY TO DO MORE KNITTING, MY GRAND SON IS SUPPOSED TO COME OVER WITH A JEAN JACKET, HE WANTS A JEAN VEST AND CANNOT FIND ONE, SO HE BOUGHT A JACKET AND WANTS TO KNOW WHERE TO CUT THE SLEEVE, GUESS WHO WILL BE DOING IT?????????????

PENNY MY EYES ALWAYS SEEM TO BE FUZZY, HAD THEM EXAMED A LITTLE MORE THAN A MONTH AGO AND EVEN NEW GLASSES WOULD NOT HELP, HE SAID THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH CHANGE TO MERIT NEW GLASSES

WILSON GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR DAD.

NO FUN GETTING OLD OR OLDER

LYNN WHAT IS A HORN WORM? GUESS I WILL HAVE TO GOOGLE THAT ONE

KIM IS RIGHT ABOUT YOU HAVE TO BE AGRESSIVE TO GET THE BEST TREATMENT AND ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS---AND TAKE SOMEONE IN WITH YOU WHO WILL EITHER BE THE ASKER OR THE WITNESS TO WHAT IS SAID---OFTEN THE PERSON BEING TREATED DOES NOT REMEMBER WHAT THE DOC SAYS---I OFTEN GO WITH MY DH FOR THAT VERY REASON---AND IT HELPED WITH MY MOTHER'S CARE.
WILSON, GLAD FOR THE NEWS ON PERT. NEXT TIME MAKE YOUR DAD GO IN WHEN YOU START TO WORRY! GLAD HE IS GETTING THE CARE HE NEEDS.
OFF TO WORK I GO---EVEN GOT UP BEFORE THE ALARM WENT OFF---LOL---HAVE A GOOD DAY!

I HATE WHEN DOCS GIVE YOU THE RUN AROUND! I'VE LEARNED TO NOT ONLY BE ASSERTIVE, BUT SOMETIMES AGGRESSIVE. AS IT SEEMS THE ONLY WA TO GET THEIR ATTENTION. IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING THE ANSWERS THAT YOU THINK YOU DESERVE, DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY SO! YES, THEY'VE GONE TO SCHOOL FOR THIS, BUT THEY SEE MANY PEOPLE IN A DAY, TEND TO RELY ON THE "STANDARD: WAY OF TREATING SOMETHING INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT EACH CASE AS AN INDIVIDUAL. I KNOW THIS, AS I TEND TO NOT BE THE "NORM". IF THERE IS A CHANCE, NO MATTER HOW SLIM, THAT THERE IS A REACTION, DIFFERENCE IN RESPONDING, ETC, I'M THAT ONE CHANCE. I'VE ALSO LEARNED THAT THE SQUEAKY WHEEL GETS THE OIL. IT MAY RUIN A DAY, COST GAS MONEY, BUT IF I HAVE TO, I'LL GOT TO A DOC OFFICE & WAIT TO BE SEEN. OR I'LL CALL EVERY DAY. TRUST ME, JUST TO BE LEFT ALONE, THEY'LL DEAL WITH YOU. KEEP ALL RELEASE FROM HOSPITAL NOTES, AFTER OFFICE VISIT NOTES, ETC. WRITE DOWN YOUR OWN QUESTIONS & TAKE THEM WITH YOU. & ASK THEM TO SPEAK IN TERMS YOU CAN UNDERSTAND, NOT IN DOCTOR SPEAK. IT'S YOUR BODY, YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT, YOU MORE OFTEN THAN NOT KNOW WHEN SOMETHINGS NOT RIGHT! RESEARCH YOUR HEALTH ISSUES, BUT NOT TO THE POINT OF CAUSING AN ANXIETY ATTACK OR COMING UP WITH ILLNESSES YOU'RE NOT LIKELY TO HAVE. BUT, BEING AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN YOUR CARE GOES A LONG WAY.

I CARRY WITH ME A PEACE OF CARD STOCK THAT HAS MY I.C.E. (IN CASE of EMERGENCY) CONTACTS. ALLERGIES TO MEDICATIONS OR FOODS. LIST OF MY ILLNESSES. THE NUMBER TO MY LOCAL PHARMACY. THE NUMBER TO MY PRIMARY DOC. & FINALLY THE LIST OF ALL MY MEDS, INCLUDING DOSAGE & FREQUENCY TAKEN. MINE LOOKS LIKE I'M A WALKING PHARMACY, LOL. ALSO, IF YOU GO ON VACATION, I SUGGEST PRINTING A COUPLE EXTRA COPIES. ONE FOR HOME, ONE TO LEAVE IN YOUR PURSE/WALLET, & ONE FOR THE HOTEL, FRIENDS PLACE YOUR STAYING.

FOR THOSE CARING FOR OTHERS, IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO MAKE INDIVIDUAL COPIES FOR EACH PERSON YOU TAKE CARE OF. KEEP ONE AT THE RESIDENCE (IF SEPARATE FROM YOURS), A COPY AT YOUR HOME, A COPY IN YOUR WALLET/PURSE.

ALSO, WALGREENS HAS STARTED PERSONAL PHARMACIST SERVICES THROUGH CERTAIN INSURANCES. THESE SERVICES ARE DESIGNED TO HELP YOU:

1. ORGANIZE YOUR MEDS
2. AVOID DRUG COMPLICATIONS/INTERACTIONS
3. UNDERSTAND GENERIC AND NON-PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
4. IMPROVE MEDICATIONS KNOWLEDGE

SIMPLY CALL YOUR LOCAL WALGREENS, ASK IF YOUR INSURANCE COVERS THIS SERVICE. IF IT DOES, YOU CAN SCHEDULE AN APPT.

PENNY I AGREE YOU NEED TO TALK TO DR #4 AND GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THINGS.

WELL I WAS RIGHT ABOUT MY DAD GOING TO HOSPITAL. I WAS JUST OFF ON THE TIME. WHEN I GOT HIM THERE THE ER DOC WENT CRAZY. MADE MY DAD TOP PRIORITY. DADS' HEART RATE WAS BETWEEN 30 AND 35. DOC TOLD ME IF I HAD GOTTEN HIM THERE 45 MINUTES LATER, HE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT. HE ONLY HAS 1 KIDNEY AND IT SHUT DOWN AND THEN WENT INTO CONGENITAL HEART FAILURE. TRACKED IT ALL DOWN TO HIS LAST VISIT TO A WALK-IN CLINIC FOR HIS MERSA WHERE THEY PRESCRIBED HIM AN ANTIBIOTIC THAT ACTUALLY ATTACKS YOUR KIDNEYS!! HELLO?!?!?!? SO HE IS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL BUT THEY HAVE MOVED HIM OUT OF ICU INTO A REGULAR ROOM. THE MERSA IS NOW IN HIS BLOOD STREAM SO THEY ARE KEEPING HIM ON IV ANTIBIOTICS UNTIL IT IS GONE.

STILL NEED RAIN HERE. WATERING EVERYDAY. MY GRASS IS STILL CRUNCHY. BUT I THINK I WILL BE EATING CORN OUT OF THE GARDEN BY NEXT WEEK!

I DID HEAR FROM PERT. SHE HAS BEEN REALLY BUSY WITH HER CD. IT IS DONE AND JUST WAITING FOR THE COPYING TO BE DONE. SHE ALSO HAS BEEN GOING TO MEETING EVERYDAY AT 7 A.M. FOR OA AND PT FOR A FALL SHE TOOK. SHE SAID TO TELL EVERYONE HELLO AND SHE WILL GET BACK ON THE TEAM WHEN THINGS SETTLE DOWN FOR HER TO HAVE MORE COMPUTER TIME.

PENNY, HAVE THEY CHECKED YOUR BLOOD SUGAR READING? DIABETES CAN AFFECT EYE SIGHT---IT THEY GET IT UNDER CONTROL YOU WILL BE OKAY. HOW SCARY FOR YOU AND SOUNDS LIKE TOO MANY FINGERS IN THE PIE SO TO SPEAK WITH ALL THOSE DOCTORS ORDERING TESTS AND OTHERS CANCELING. DO YOU HAVE A REGULAR DOCTOR---NOT A HEART ONE---THAT YOU COULD CALL AND TALK TO? HOPE THINGS STRAIGHTEN OUT FOR YOU---AND MAKE SURE A FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS HOW TO GET ON TO SPARK TO LET US KNOW IF YOU GO TO THE HOSPITAL OR HAVE A CRISIS.

I NEED SOME HELP, PLEASE! FOR SOME TIME I'VE HAD TROUBLE CATCHING MY BREATHE. ON THE 7 TH IT FELT LKE SOMETHING SHIFTED IN MY CHEST & I JUST COULDN'T BREATHE UNLESS I EITHER LAID DOWN OF SAT BEFORE A FAN. WHEN I GOT UP TO GO TO THE BATHROOM I THOUGHT I'D PASS OUT. I CALLED MY HEART DOCTOR & HE WAS OUT OF THE OFFICE FOR 2 DAYS SO I WENT IN ON THE 9TH. HE PUT ME IN THE HOPPITAL. HE SAID THAT HE WAS ADMITTING ME TO A ROOM. WELL. THE KEPT ME OM THE ER FOR 6 1/2 HOURS. THEY PUT THE IV IN THE CROOK OF MY RIGHT ARM & THE bP CUFF ON MY LEFT ARM & HAD ME LAY ON MY BACK WITH MY ARMS STRAIGHT DOWN BESIDE MY BODY. THEY HOOKED SOMETHING TO THE IV & IT BROUGHT UP THE BP & BROUGHT DOWN THE HEART BEAT THEN THEY ROUGHT MY SUPPER TRAY IN & GOT UPSET WHEN I TRIED TO EAT. EVER TRY TO EAT & NOT BEND YOUR ARMS? THEY HACE THIS GUILD LINE THAT IF YOU'RE OVER 65, WEAR GLASSES, ECT YOU CAN'T GET OUT OF BED WITH OUT THEM THERE WITH YOU. I TOLD THE NURSE THAT THEY DIDN'T ANSWER THE BELL ALL THAT FAST & THAT I HAD A WEAK BLADDER SO SHE TOLD ME THAT I COULD REDUSE THE ORDER. WHEN THE HEAD NURSE CAME IN FOR ME TO SIGN THE PAPERWORK I ASKED HIM WHY THEY DIDN'T TELL YOU THAT YOU COULD DO THIS & HE SAID THAT THE HOSPITAL DIDN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW! SO # 2 DOCTOR ORDERED A LOT OT TESTS & SAID I'D BE THER UNTIL MONDAY. LATER # 3 DOCTOR CAME IN & CANCELLED THE TESTS AS iI'VE ALREADY HAD Y THEM IN THE PAST YEAR OR SO & HE SAID I COULD GO HOME SAT AFTERNOON. EARLY THE NEXT MORNING A NURSE CAME IN TO GIVE ME A ECHO TEST & I TOLD HER IT'S BEEN CAMCELLED & TO CHECK MY CHART. sHE DID & SAID I WASN'T GOING TO GET IT. THE #2 DOCTOR CAME IN & GOT UPSET THAT THE TESTS HAD BEEN CANCELLED & I WAS GOING HOME.BUT THE WERID PART IS MY EYE SIGHT IS REALLY FUZZY. I GOT MY EYES CHECKED & A NEW PAIR OF GLASSES IN JUNE. NOW I'M HAVING TROUBLE READING. I DON'T SEE THE DOCTOR AGAIN UNTIL THE 27. RIGHT NOW I'M NOT SURE THAT I TRUST ANY OF THEM AS NO ONE CAN TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON.

ON THE GOOS SIDE IS WE MADE 36 QTS OF SALSA, FROSE SOME SQUASH & GREEN BEAN & GOT THE BACK PATIO WEEDED & THE IRIS TRIMED, THE SIDE (DAYLILLIES) CLEANED UP & THE HUGE FLOWER BED IN FRONT OF THE CRAFT ROOM CLEANED OUT. A FRIEND GAVE ME SIME SUMMER POINSETTAS TO PLANT. I PLAN ON DOING THAT TOMORROW.

SORRY TO VENT BUT I JUST HATE THAT NO ONE CAN TELL ME WHAT'S HAPPENDING & THE THOUGHT OF LOSING MY SIGHT IS REALLY GETTING TO ME!

LYNN, YOU MIGHT BE BUT I WON'T---I REALLY DO HATE HOT HUMID SUMMERS AND WISH I HAD MY LONG BREAK WHEN THE WEATHER WAS DECENT---ALTHOUGH THIS SUMMER HAS BEEN NICER THAN THE PAST 2 WHICH WERE HORRIBLE.
NANCY, GLAD I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE ON THE AC---LOL TO THE LITTLE DISCUSSION ON THE KEYBOARD.
LAST DAY OF SUMMER BREAK---BACK TO WORK TOMORROW---HOPE TO JUST RELAX AND MAYBE DO SOMETHING FUN BUT DH HAS AN EYE DOCTOR APPOINTMENT.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD DAY!

EVENING EVERYONE ... WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY WE HAD HERE TODAY ... SUNSHINE ... SLIGHT BREEZE ... 80° ... NOW IT IS 71° AND SHOULD MAKE IT TO THE LOWER 60'S THROUGH THE NIGHT. HOWEVER I'LL HAVE TO USE THE AC ... DH TOOK THE STORMS/SCREENS OFF OUR BEDROOM WINDOWS TO PAINT THEM SO WE WILL BE WITHOUT FRESH BREEZES IN THERE FOR 2 OR 3 NIGHTS UNTIL HE GETS THEM RE-INSTALLED. HE MADE SUCH A MESS OF THE WINDOWS WHEN HE CAULKED ... AND TOOK THEM OUT AND BACK IN THAT I HAD TO RE-CLEAN THEM ALL.

FOUND A HORN-WORM ON ONE OF MY TOMATO PLANT TODAY ... IT IS ALREADY INFILTRATED WITH PARASITIC WASP LARVAE SO I'LL LEAVE THEM ALONE. THEY SHOULD TAKE CARE OF ANY OTHER HORN-WORMS HANGING AROUND! THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY DAMAGE TO THE PLANTS OR THE TOMATOES ... MAYBE I GOT LUCKY AND THE WASPS GOT IT QUICKLY ... I'LL KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON THINGS FOR A WHILE. I CHECKED ONLINE FOR INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT WHAT TO DO IF I FIND ANY MORE. NEXT YEAR I'LL HAVE TO CHURN THE SOIL TO MAKE SURE I'M RID OF THE WORMS BEFORE I PLANT AGAIN.

I THOUGHT MY PATIO PLANT GOT TOO MUCH WATER THIS YEAR ... NOW I'M WONDERING IF THE HORN-WORMS GOT IT.

KEEP ENJOYING THE REST OF THE SUMMER ... WE WILL BE PRAYING FOR THIS IN ABOUT 3 OR 4 MONTHS ...

HOPE YOU GOT OUT WHAT YOU WANTED TO GET OUT.
IT WAS CHILLY HERE YESTERDAY---I ACTUALLY BAKED COOKIES, THEN MUFFINS FOR MY NEW NEIGHBORS, AND MADE CASSEROLE FOR DINNER YESTERDAY---THAT IS NOT USUALLY COOKED UNTIL FALL COMES AROUND AGAIN SO IT WAS A NICE TREAT FOR US. WARM WEATHER COMES BACK STARTING TOMORROW SO ONE MORE DAY TO ENJOY BEFORE I HAVE TO SHUT UP THE HOUSE AGAIN. WE HAD THE RIGHT KIND OF RAIN YESTERDAY---CAME DOWN NICE AND EASY AND THE GROUND ABSORBED IT NICELY.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD DAY!

HELLO ALL. I AM STILL ALIVE. STILL BUSY AS EVER AT THE FOLKS. MY DAD IS NOT DOING TOO GOOD LATELY. I KEEP ASKING IF HE WANTS TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL AND HE SAYS NO. HE WILL MOST LIKELY CALL ABOUT MIDNIGHT FOR A RIDE.

GOT MY YOUNGEST SONS' DOG THIS WEEKEND. BEEN A REAL MAD HOUSE WITH THE NEW RENTERS DOG BEING IN HEAT! BUT THE KIDS WILL BE BACK SUNDAY NIGHT

WE NEED SOME RAIN HERE TOO. MY GRASS IS BROWN AND CRUNCHES WHEN YOU WALK ON IT. HAVE HAD TO WATER THE GARDEN EVERYDAY. BUT I AM GETTING CUKES AND ZUCCHINI AND 1 HEAD OF LETTUCE SO FAR. MY CORN IS ABOUT 5 FT HIGH BUT NOT READY YET.

JOJO AND KIM YOU ARE BOTH IN MY THOUGHTS. PERT TOO.

Since gardening is where I get a good share of my exercise minutes, thought this would be a group I could learn from. Just came inside from two hours of separating, dividing and replanting irises. Temps in the 90's now and needed to come in and hydrate. emoticon

KIM, THINK MY DH HAD THAT PUT ON HIS LEG AFTER THE HOSPITAL STAY FOR CELLULITIS---IT DID SEEM TO HELP. GLAD IT IS IMPROVING SOME AND THAT THE DOC REALIZES YOU NEEDED ADDITIONAL HEALING TIME.
NANCY, NO ONE HAS HEARD FROM HER ON HERE. ENJOY YOUR TRIP AND JUST DON'T SIT NEAR HER---AND IF SHE STARTS IN, TRIP HER AS SHE GOES DOWN THE AISLE---LOL
WHAT IS TURNER'S SYNDRONE?
GOING TO WALK THE PARK TODAY BUT NOT DOING THE WHOLE LOOP---ONE PART HAS A STEEP INCLINE AND I AM NOT READY FOR THAT ACCORDING TO PT----BUT IT IS JUST TOO NICE TO WALK INSIDE TODAY---SURE THE HEAT WILL BE BACK THIS WEEK AND IT MIGHT BE A MONTH BEFORE WE HAVE THIS NICE WEATHER AGAIN.
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Got good/relieving news at docs office. She reaffirmed why I like her so!

Doc put an Unna boot* on & a compression bandage to help reduce the swelling & pain. We're keeping the stitches in 1 more week, as well as extended the time on pain meds. I'm to start working on moving/wiggling my toes & continue moving my foot at the ankle.

*In medicine, an Unna boot is a special gauze (usually 4 inches wide and 10 yards long) bandage, which can be used for the treatment of venous stasis ulcers and other venous insufficiencies of the leg. It can also be used as a supportive bandage for sprains and strains of the foot, ankle and lower leg. The gauze is impregnated with a thick, creamy mixture of zinc oxide and calamine to promote healing. It may also contain acacia, glycerin, castor oil and white petrolatum.

ANOTHER CHILLY MORNING ... IN THE MID 50'S ... EXPECTED TO BE ABOUT 72° TODAY. DH HAS BEEN WORKING ON SCRAPING AND PAINTING THE WINDOWS (NOT HAPPY HERE ... THEY SHOULD BE REPLACED) SO LIKES THE COOLER SUNNY WEATHER. IT WAS SPITTING RAIN A LITTLE WHILE AGO ... NOT SURE WHERE THAT CAME FROM .... WE AREN'T EXPECTING RAIN FOR A FEW DAYS!

WORKING IN THE BASEMENT AGAIN TODAY ... MAKING SPAGHETTI FOR LUNCH ... I SIMMER IT FOR A FEW HOURS ON THE STOVE SO WHEN THE WEATHER IS HOT I DON'T MAKE IT ... GUYS ARE HAPPY I'M TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE COOLER TEMPS TO MAKE A POT.

HEADING OUT SHORTLY TO RUN A FEW ERRANDS ...

ENJOY THE SUMER!!!

LYNN, I WOULD WORRY, TOO---HE IS MAKING HIMSELF A NICE LITTLE APARTMENT WITH A LIVE IN COOK/HOUSEKEEPER/MAID---LOL YOUR WEATHER SOUNDS LOVELY---IT WAS IN THE 90S YESTERDAY HERE. TODAY IS FORECASTED FOR A RAIN DAY AND THEN YOUR COOLER WEATHER IS SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW--BUT NOT AS COOL AS YOURS.
NANCY, HOPE YOU HAVE FUN
I HAD A LOVELY DAY YESTERDAY---HAD PT THEN LUNCH WITH A FRIEND, THEN SOME SHOPPING---GOT A NEW TOP FOR 7 AND A SHRUG FOR 10 FOR BACK TO SCHOOL---THEN HAD WATER AEROBICS LAST NIGHT---NOT SURE WHICH CAUSED MY PROBLEM THIS MORNING---MY LEFT HIP WAS KILLING ME---NOTHING SEEMED TO WORK---TRIED CREAM, THEN ICE, FINALLY HAD TO JUST GET UP AND WALK TO GET IT LOOSENED UP---AND BY THEN I AM WIDE AWAKE---FORSEE A NAP ONCE I GET HOME FROM THE ORTHO DOC VISIT. I HAVE RED HATS TONIGHT AT A STEAK PLACE---GOOD FOOD THERE.
HAVE A GOOD DAY ---THOSE WHO NEED RAIN, HOPE YOU GET SOME---ENJOY COOLER TEMPS IF YOU HAVE THEM.

KIM ... I AGREE WITH ALL THE "OUCH'S" ... HOWEVER IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE IT IS HEALING WELL! I SURE HOPE THE SURGERY HAS WORKED OUT THE WAY THEY WANTED ... I SUPPOSE IT WILL BE A WHILE BEFORE YOU KNOW IF IT IS COMPLETELY SUCCESSFUL ... GOOD LUCK!!!

WE HAD A REALLY NICE RAIN HERE TODAY ... IT'S ABOUT 69° OUT NOW ... AND WILL PROBABLY BE THE SAME (OR A COUPLE DEGREES WARMER) TOMORROW ... AND A LITTLE SUNNIER. GLAD SON GOT OUR GRASS MOWED YESTERDAY ... GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WATERING FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

DID MORE WORK ON THE BASEMENT TODAY ... FOUND OUT WHERE THE OPOSSUM WAS SPENDING TIME AFTER IT GOT IN THE HOUSE ... IT LEFT BEHIND A COUPLE 'PRESENTS' ON A VINYL CHAIR, AND A SET OF SHEETS ON THE COUNTER! PROBABLY HIDING THERE UNTIL THE HOUSE GOT QUIET!! WE MOVED THE COUCH UP INTO ONE OF SON'S ROOMS ... HE IS NOW USING BOTH ROOMS UPSTAIRS ... ONE AS A SLEEPING/ STUDY ROOM ... THE OTHER AS HIS LIVING ROOM. MAKES ME NERVOUS ... HE SEEMS TO BE SETTLING IN TOO WELL UP THERE. I SURE HOPE HE HAS PLANS TO MOVE OUT SOME DAY!!!

KEEP ENJOYING SUMMER WHILE YOU CAN ...

FAMILY REUNION WENT WELL CONSIDERING THE CROWD THAT WAS THERE, BUT AS USUAL ONCE YOU HEAR EVERYONE ELSE'S PROBLEMS YOU ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOUR OWN

MANAGED TO BE GOOD FOOD WISE EXCEPT FOR A PIECE OF CAKE, GOT HOME ABOUT 10 AND TODAY HAS BEEN A VERY LAZY DAY

TOMORROW I WILL BE AT MY DAUGHTER'S 4 DAYS SO I MAY NOT BE ON.

WHAT A GREAT DAY HERE ... WEATHER IS WONDERFUL. IT WAS 73° AT 4 THIS AFTERNOON AND SUNNY ALL AROUND. RAN ERRANDS IN THE MORNING BEFORE SON NEEDED THE CAR ... IT IS RUNNING GREAT NOW ... ALTERNATOR, FRONT ROTORS AND THE AC/HEATER FAN ... GLAD TO HAVE IT BACK.

HAVE A TERRIFIC SINUS HEADACHE ... I'M SURE IT'S ALLERGIES SINCE REPORTS ARE HIGH POLLEN/MOLD RIGHT NOW. WILL HAVE TO LOAD UP ON BENADRYL BEFORE GOING TO BED ... THAT USUALLY TAKES CARE OF IT.

JOY ... COULDN'T GET GUTTER GUARD AT LOWES TODAY ... THEY WERE COMPLETELY OUT. I'LL JUST CUT UP SOME OF THE CHICKEN WIRE TO MAKE A SAMPLE FOR GARDEN CLUB ON WEDNESDAY ... I'LL SEE IF ADRIENNE CAN HELP ME WITH FLOWER SUGGESTIONS.

HEADING FOR BED EARLY ... NEED TO TAKE CARE OF THIS HEADACHE ... HAVE A GOOD SUNDAY EVERYONE ...

JOY, YOU ARE GOING TO MISS SOME NICE WEATHER DOWN HERE, TOO---SIGH I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO BE UP THERE FOR THAT YARD SALE ALTHOUGH I RARELY FIND ANYTHING AT THEM---JUST TOO CHOOSY ANY MORE---LOL---BUT WOULD HAVE LIKED IT WITH TOPS AVAILABLE.
COOKING LIMA BEANS AND CORN FOR DINNER ALONG WITH SOME FRIED CHICKEN AND BISCUITS---JUST BOUGHT A SMALL CAN OF THE BISCUITS---I WANTED THEM THE LAST TIME WE HAD THE BEANS SO WENT AHEAD AND GOT THEM---JUST GOING TO SLICE SOME TOMATOES AND THAT WILL BE DINNER---WITH JUST THE 2 OF US, IT IS HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO COOK ANYMORE.
WE HAD A NICE LITTLE RAINFALL EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON---LIKE THAT BETTER THAN THE THUNDERSTORM KIND OF LAST NIGHT.

GOOD MORNING. LOOKS BEAUTIFUL OUT, BUT I'M BUZZING AROUND HERE IN MY PJ'S SO I HAVEN'T BEEN OUT YET AT ALL. PHONE SAYS IT'S 72, AND I CAN SEE IT'S SUNNY! LOL

WELL, I WENT WITH DD AND THE KIDS YESTERDAY, TO THE MILE LONG YARD SALE. WE KIND OF MADE IT A 1/2 MILE SALE... JUST TOO HOT AND I WAS STARTING TO HURT, SO WE DIDN'T DO ALL WE USUALLY DO. ANYONE LOOKING FOR BABY, ESPECIALLY BABY GIRL STUFF, COULD HAVE HIT A BONUS! I FOUND A FEW TOPS FOR ME, AND A COUPLE PAIR OF SLACKS IN MY NEW SIZE. HOPING FOR 2 MORE SIZES BY NEXT SUMMER....ANYHOW, WE HAD A GOOD TIME, AS USUAL. TRIED TO GET LYNN TO COME OUT TOO, BUT SHE DIDN'T MAKE IT. USUALLY PLUS SIZE CLOTHES CAN'T BE FOUND ANYWHERE AT A YARD SALE, BUT THERE WERE TONS AND TONS OF 2X, 3X, AND EVEN SOME 4 AND 5X THINGS. DD FOUND A FEW THINGS FOR HER, AND SCHOOL CLOTHES FOR MICHAEL. THOUGHT ABOUT GOING DOWN AGAIN THIS MORNING AND SEE IF ANYONE ELSE WAS OUT. TALKED MYSELF OUT OF THAT REAL FAST....

LYNN, DON'T THINK ANYTHING ABOUT THE RANT. YOU MAY BE THE ONE I'M WITH NEXT TIME I NEED TO VENT. THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS FRIENDS ARE FOR.

SPENT LAST WEEKEND AT MY 50TH CLASS REUNION. HAD A FAIRLY GOOD TIME. THEN WE LOST ANOTHER CLASSMATE ON TUESDAY. OUR NUMBERS ARE GOING DOWN FAST.

SUPPOSED TO BE ON MY WAY TO LECATES' COME MONDAY MORNING. BUMMED THAT I'M NOT ABLE TO GO.

BETTER GO SWITCH THE WET CLOTHES TO THE DRYER, AND START ANOTHER LOAD. HAVE TO WATCH THE WATER, BUT I THINK IT'S BEEN LONG ENOUGH THAT I CAN AT LEAST START THE SECOND LOAD....

I JUST SAW A BLOG GO BY ON THE STREAM, TALKING ABOUT A PLACE IN ERIE...GOING TO GO CHECK THAT OUT FIRST..... BBL

Good morning all,

We have three fires burning in the coastal hills now, but have been very fortunate no lives have been lost! Tragically a few homes have burned and many are suffering from the smoke! It burns my eyes and throat sometimes, but the last couple days there has been a night mist and it seems to clean a lot of it out of the air down here on the coast. It’s still cool here, high 50s to low 60s during the day, and overcast with a little late afternoon clearing. It could be a bit warmer, but I’m not complaining! My sister lives in Oregon, but reports that so far the smoke has not reached them. I’ve seen pictures of my sister-in-law’s little goat farm in the Rogue Valley and the air quality is awful!

Kim – I, too, am praying that you are up, around and pain free very soon. My husband is looking into ankle replacements but so far we haven’t been able to get Worker’s Comp to give him a referral for a consult… grrr!

Glad to hear Jojo’s surgery went well… praying for the very best outcome for her.

I’m going on a pond tour tomorrow morning. The Water Garden Club hosts three of them a year and I have missed the first two. I’m excited to see what others have done with their ponds. On Sunday, I’m having lunch with my oldest grandson and hopefully getting to meet his girlfriend for the first time.

Hope all of you have a great weekend! ~~ Donna

MORNING EVERYONE ... BEEN UP FOR A WHILE ... JUST COULDN'T SLEEP. WE HAD A NICE RAIN DURING THE NIGHT ... GLAD I DON'T HAVE TO WATER TODAY. I HAVE THE RAIN BARREL SET UP BY THE POND ... WE USUALLY FILL IT AND LET THE WATER SET FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE ADDING IT TO THE POND ... GIVES THE CHLORINE A CHANCE TO EVAPORATE ... WILL DO THIS FOR 4 OR 5 DAYS UNTIL WATER IS BACK UP TO A GOOD LEVEL.

RAINED SOUTH OF US YESTERDAY ... DROVE THROUGH QUITE A STORM WITH JOY.

LECATES ... HOW MANY MORE DAYS BEFORE YOU START BACK TO WORK?

JOY ... SORRY FOR THE RANT YESTERDAY ... GUESS IT JUST GETS TO ME SOMETIMES ... FEELING MUCH BETTER TODAY.

WILSON ... SO GLAD YOU ARE GETTING A LITTLE DOWN TIME ... I REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO IT. I REMEMBER WHEN MY MOM USED TO GO HELP MY GRANDPA EVERYDAY ... LUCKILY HE DID A LOT FOR HIMSELF, BUT IT STILL TOOK IT'S TOLL. SHE VOWED TO MOVE INTO A RETIREMENT CENTER WHEN THE TIME WAS RIGHT, AND SHE DID! LAST YEAR SHE MADE ANOTHER TRANSITION INTO AN ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY ... SHE LIVES IN THE INDEPENDENT AREA, BUT THEY HAVE NURSING IF/WHEN SHE MIGHT NEED IT. SHE LOVES IT THERE.

KIM ... SO GLAD TO HEAR YOU ARE ALMOST PAIN FREE ... WHEN DO YOU START PT? I'M SURE YOU WILL BE HAPPY WHEN YOU ARE 100%

DJ ... I SURE AM GLAD WE DON'T NEED TO FIRE UP THE FURNACE YET ... HOPEFULLY THAT IS A LONG WAY OFF. WE ARE DIE HARDS ... WE TRY TO MAKE IT UNTIL AT LEAST NOVEMBER BEFORE WE TURN IT BACK ON ...

WELL I GUESS IT'S TIME TO OFFICIALLY START MY DAY ... I HEARD DH STIRRING IN THE BEDROOM SO I BETTER GET THE COFFEE STARTED.

WELL HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!

BEEN AWAY FAR TOO LONG TO BE TOTALLY CAUGHT UP WITH EVERYTHING.

i BELIEVE SOMEONE MENTIONED RED MAPLES DYING? I HAVE SEVERAL OF THEM AND YES SOME ARE DYING. ALL DUE TO CARPENTER ANTS!

WELL THE STORY ABOUT GETTING HELP WITH THE FOLKS TURNED OUT TO BE JUST THAT. A STORY. NEW PEOPLE STARTING ON THE 1 ST OF AUG? HERE IT IS THE 8TH AND NOBODY HAS TURNED UP YET. LOL THE GOOD NEWS IS MY SISTERS TOOK A FEW DAYS SO I GOT TO GO TO MY CABIN!!!!! I BELIEVE THEY WERE FEELING A BIT GUILTY BEINGS THEY WERE HEADING OUT FOR 7 AND 8 DAYS ON TRIPS AT THE SAME TIME AND WANTED ME TO DO THE DOGS AND HORSES.

KIM I HOPE YOU ARE UP AND OUT OF THAT CHAIR SOON. AND PAIN FREE!

WHO ALL HAS FIRES GOING? i HAVE RELATIVES IN OREGON, NEAR MEDFORD AND THEY HAVE TO WEAR MASKS WHEN THEY LEAVE THE HOUSE BECAUSE THE SMOKE IS SO BAD. HOPE EVERYONE IN THE LINE OF FIRE GETS RAIN AND LOTS OF IT!

NEW RENTERS ARE IN. BEEN BUSY UP THERE TAKING CARE OF LITTLE DETAILS. LIKE REPLACING THE SCREEN ON THE SLIDER. BUT SO FAR SO GOOD.

HAD A SUPER GOOD TIME AT THE CABIN. THE TIME WENT BY WAY TOO FAST. NOW I AM JUST ITCHING TO GO AGAIN. OH WELL, JUST AS SOON AS THAT NEW HELP ARRIVES! LOL

HOPE ALL IS WELL WITH JOJO. MY DAD FINALLY GOT RID OF HIS MERSA. HE HAD IT FOR ABOUT A MONTH.

WELL MY FRIENDS IT IS ABOUT THAT TIME TO HEAD BACK TO THE FOLKS FOR THE DINNER SESSION SO I HOPE TO CHAT AT YOU LATER.

Prayers for JoJo & I'm hoping for no more Mersa. I'm making a few crochet & loom knitted items for friends & family for Christmas. My foot is doing better every day, but I'm still using the wheelchair. I see the doc tomorrow, I'm excited to see what it looks like. Trying to catch up on my sleep since the pain is almost gone. Take cate everyone.
