NANCY, I STILL DON'T NEED LONG PANTS HERE, BUT MAYBE NEXT WEEKEND.
DEB, BISON IS A GREAT IDEA AS THEY ARE HARDY IN THAT COLD WEATHER AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN BISON MEAT---I HAVE HAD IT AND IT IS GOOD. THERE IS ACTUALLY A LOCAL BISON FARM IN MY AREA---THE KIDS WENT TO VISIT IT LAST YEAR----WISH I HAD GONE.
KAREN, NEVER NEEDED A PUMP BEFORE---THIS IS A FIRST--THINK FROM ALL THE RAIN AT ONCE WAS THE ISSUE. i THINK THERE IS NO SUMP PUMP BECAUSE IT IS NOT A TOTALLY FINISHED BASEMENT, JUST PARTIALLY FINISHED---STILL HAVE DIRT IN THE OTHER SECTION AND ONLY ONE ROOM SEMI FINISHED---WHICH IS WHERE THE RUG IS---WE WILL PROBABLY PULL THAT UP WHEN WE CAN GET THE BOYS OVER TO HELP DO THAT---NO STANDING WATER, JUST A WET CARPET AND A LITTLE WATER IN PUDDLES IN THE OPEN SECTION ON THE CEMENT FLOOR SECTION IN THERE.
MORE CHANCE OF RAIN TODAY---HOPE IT IS LIGHT AS SLOWLY GETTING ROADS SO PEOPLE CAN DRIVE ON---AND HAVE SOME ROADS COLLAPSE IN A FEW AREAS. THE BASEMENT IS SLOWLY DRYING OUT WITH THE HELP OF FANS BUT WITH IT STILL BEING HUMID AND DAMP OUTSIDE, IT IS SLOW GOING.
i DID GET MY FRONT PORCH CLEANED YESTERDAY AND THE FALL DECOR OUT THERE---TOO WET TO DO ANYTHING OUTSIDE---GOING TO PULL UP MY VINCA AND PUT THEM IN THE COMPOST PILE SO I CAN PLANT SOME WINTER PANSIES---BUT NOT SURE IF I WILL DO THAT TODAY WITH THE RAIN IN THE FORECAST. THAT MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TUESDAY OR THURSDAY..
HAVE A GOOD SATURDAY!

No flooding here around my house or in the state. It cold today .

Deb you could rent out your land for someone to use. My Aunts has lot of family land and some of it is rented out.

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

THANK YOU SO MUCH, DEB AND LECATES. YES, IT SURE IS REWARDING. ALL THEIR HARD WORK IS PAYING OFF. THEY LOVE IT ON MOST DAYS AND THAT'S THE MAIN THING!!

DEB, YOU HAVE A GOOD IDEA WITH YOUR LAND. TO BE ABLE TO GIVE PEOPLE JOBS IS A GREAT THING. i HAVEN'T HEARD OF THAT REFUGE, BUT I ALSO HAVEN'T LIVED IN SEATTLE FOR OVER 30 YEARS NOW. I HAVE RELATIVES IN OR TOO, AND THEY'VE PROBABLY HEARD OF IT.

I'M SO SORRY ABOUT THE FLOODING. LECATES, IT'S NOT ANY FUN TO CLEAN A BASEMENT THAT'S GOTTEN WET. I KNOW THAT WE TRY NOT TO HAVE BOXES, ETC., ON THE FLOOR, WHERE THEY CAN GET WET AND DESTROYED. OUR BASEMENT IS WHERE THE GUYS GO FROM OUTSIDE, TO CHANGE INTO CLEAN CLOTHES, ETC. THE SHOWER AND WASHER AND DRYER ARE DOWN THERE. OUR OLD BOXES OF TAXES UP ON SHELVES. WE HAVE A LOT OF SHELVES WHERE THINGS ARE UP AND OFF THE FLOOR. A CHEST FREEZER IS DOWN THERE ALONG WITH THE FURNACE OF COURSE. SO MANY THINGS, WHERE THAT'S THE BEST PLACE FOR EXTRA THINGS. WE ALSO HAVE A CISTERN DOWN THERE THAT ALL CEMENTED, WITH A LITTLE DOOR, FROM WHERE IN THE OLDEN DAYS, PEOPLE WOULD MAKE THEIR SAUERKRAUT, ETC. WE DON'T USE THAT ROOM FOR ANYTHING. IT IS TOO WARM IN THERE BECAUSE OF THE FURNACE, SO WE DON'T STORE VEGGIES, ETC. IN THERE.

I HOPE EVERYBODY HAS A GOOD DAY!

Lecates, Have you ever needed a sump pump to pull the water out of the basement. Here in Oregon most houses with a basement need a pump. Must be unusual that you have that problem, like you said. I was hearing about the flooding in the East, that it's really bad, hope it will end soon.

I hope JOJO will be fine, and I'll put in a prayer for her.

Karen, That's fantastic, it's good to hear the guys are going to stick with it. I think doing that kind of job is rewarding, even though its hard work, but the values of the family are stronger. That's why I'd like to live in Burns, OR, even though its way out in the middle of no where, its all Country folk. It's all a farming community and people are so nice. I have 80 acres to call my own, but I haven't figured out what I can do with it yet. Pivots are expensive and I don't think I have enough land for raising to many cows except to eat. Mostly everyone I've seen out there grows alfalfa or grass hay, and some do cattle. I also have seen a newcomer come in with bison. I don't see anyway growing any crops, mainly because it gets down to -17 degrees for a few days. It would be great to grow something or raise wild birds, like Quail, Chucker, Cranes or Pheasant. They do have a wildlife refuge, which you may have heard of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, in the newspaper. I wish I had an idea to put more people in town to work, I've been thinking about that for quite a while.

Keep saying I can do this!

EVELYN, THE LAST I HEARD FROM JOJO THERE WAS FLOODING IN HER AREA BUT NOT AT HER HOUSE---HOPE THAT IS STILL TRUE AS SHE HAS NOT POSTED IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. SHE SAID TO SAY HI---THINGS STILL NOT GOOD FOR HER SO KEEP HER IN YOUR PRAYERS.
NANCY, GLAD THE TEMPS ARE JUST RIGHT FOR YOU---i STILL HAVEN'T SWITCHED TO LONG PANTS YET AND PROBABLY WONT' THIS NEXT WEEK EITHER.
KAREN, GLAD YOU ARE STAYING IN THE BUSINESS---PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE HOW SAD IT IS AND HOW DANGEROUS IT IS FOR ALL THESE FARMERS TO QUIT---WE NEED THEM!
DEB, HOPE YOU GET THAT WEEDING DONE--DON'T THINK i WILL BE DOING MUCH OUTSIDE IN THIS WET HERE.
WE GOT SENT HOME 2 HOURS EARLY--ALONG WITH GOING IN 2 HOURS LATE---SO I WORKED ABOUT 3 HOURS YESTERDAY. AND NO SCHOOL TODAY--IT RAINED ALL NIGHT LONG SO WE ARE QUITE WATER LOGGED AROUND HERE AND MORE FLOODING. EVEN WET BASEMENT HERE AND AFRAID THAT WE WILL FIND WATER DOWN THERE TODAY AFTER LAST NIGHT'S RAIN---SO FIGURE DH AND i WILL BE DOING STUFF DOWN THERE TODAY---YUCK!--OH, WELL, A LOT OF IT JUST NEEDS TO GO ANYHOW. NEVER HAD THIS ISSUE BEFORE DOWN THERE SO YOU KNOW WE HAD WAY TOO MUCH RAIN AT ONCE.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD DAY---i AM HOPING TO JUST DRY OUT! LOL

DEB, OF COURSE YOU CAN ASK. WE'RE MILKING AROUND 90 RIGHT NOW. AND YES, WE HAVE A 2000 GALLON BULK TANK TO KEEP THE MILK STIRRED AT CERTAIN TIMES AND COOLED AT THE PERFECT TEMP. THE MILK HAULER COMES EVERY OTHER DAY. SO FAR IT LOOKS LIKE THE GUYS WANT TO STAY IN, AT LEAST FOR A WHILE MORE. THE MILK PRICE HAS GONE UP AND IS BETTER. OUR COWS ARE DOING SO GREAT ON THE RATION THEY GET AND ARE DOING SO WELL IN THE NEW BARN ALSO. THEY LOVE IT AND THEIR PRODUCTION SHOWS! emoticon

I FILLED UP A WHEELBARROW WITH WEEDS FROM OUR GARDEN TODAY TOO. I HOPE TO GET OUT THERE AGAIN TOMORROW AND CLEAR SOME MORE DEAD FLOWERS AWAY. I NEVER TAKE IT ALL AWAY, ESPECIALLY THAT WHICH IS STILL ATTACHED TO THE PLANT, BECAUSE I THINK IT SHELTERS THE PLANT FROM THE HARSH WINTER, MORE. THE GREEN TOMATOES AREN'T HARDLY TURNING COLOR ANYMORE, SO THEY'RE ALMOST DONE. THE STRAWBERRY PLANT TOO. I DID TAKE AWAY THE PETUNIA HANGING BASKETS, BECAUSE THEY WERE LOOKING QUITE SAD. I HAVE ALREADY PICKED SEVERAL OF THE NICE LOOKING GREEN TOMATOES AND HAVE PUT THEM ON THE KITCHEN SILL. THE NIGHTS ARE GETTING COLDER.

Karen, Thanks for that correction, I figured that couldn't be true. I'm glad to hear things are working better for you. Earlier you mentioned about getting out of the milking business or are you doing well enough to continue on. I imagine you either have to have a vat to keep the milk stirred till you send it off to be processed. That's quite a big operation and work when I start thinking about it. How many cows do you have, if it's OK to ask?

Anyway seems everyone is having some type of rain or flooding. I came home and spent some time cleaning out my garden and pulling some weeds. I'm hoping to get more done through the weekend. We'll see!

Keep saying I can do this!

WE HAVE A MIXTURE OF COWS. HOLSTEIN, JERSEY, RED HOLSTEIN, BROWN SWISS, MONTBELIARDE. WE'VE BEEN CROSSBREEDING FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW, BECAUSE OF GETTING THE BEST HERD POSSIBLE, AND NOW AT THIS TIME, OUR HERD HAS IMPROVED SO MUCH. SO WE'RE HAPPY. emoticon AS FAR AS GETTING SCARED, I'VE NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE. IT SOUNDS LIKE AN OLD WIVE'S TALE TO ME. LOL!!

Karen, I would imagine the cows were scared of the lightening. Are they Jersey cows? Is it ever true that their milk can sour if they get scared enough, or is that is that a tale?

IT'S FLOODING HERE IN MINNESOTA TOO, AND WE'RE SUPPOSED TO GET MORE RAIN, SO PEOPLE WON'T BE HAPPY ABOUT THAT. WE'RE FINE WHERE WE ARE AND NOT FAR FROM A RIVER EITHER, BUT WE'RE UP QUITE A WAYS FROM IT. I SURE FEEL FOR ALL THOSE THAT HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL THE PROBLEMS, THAT TOO MUCH WATER CAUSE!! POOR PEOPLE!

AS FAR AS LIGHTENING AND THUNDER, I'VE NEVER SEEN SO MUCH OF IT UNTIL BEING HERE IN MN!! WE NEVER HAD MUCH AT ALL IN SEATTLE, COMPARED TO HERE. IT'S A NORMAL WAY OF GETTING RAIN!! ONE JUST HOPES THAT IT DOESN'T HARM US! AND HAVE WE EVER SEEN THE LIGHTENING LIGHT UP THE WHOLE SKY!! I REMEMBER LONG AGO WITH HAVING A STORM, AND IT WAS THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND THE COWS GOT OUT. EVERY TIME THE SKY LIT UP, WE COULD SEE THE COWS A LITTLE BETTER! SOME PERKS??! WELL, IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT THAT! LOL!

AND YES DEB. WEATHERMEN/WOMEN CHANGE THEIR MINDS OFTEN. I LOVE DAHLIAS,, I HAD ONE THAT WAS PERENNIAL AND GOODNESS THE BLOOMS WERE SO BIG, I DIVIDED THAT SO MANY TIMES. I THINK ALL MY SISTERS HAVE A PIECE OF IT.

We have never had Thunder and Lightening that were severe, that you had to take cover. My mom lived in Arizona, and she said there was lightening across the sky and all over the place. Arizona has problems with flooding, since the ground doesn't have enough time to soak in the water. Five inches is a lot in that short of time, I'd stay home too and wait it out!

We're supposed to get rain on Saturday, so I have to do a little bit of gardening today and tomorrow. Not sure about Sunday's weather or even next weeks forecast. They weather people keep changing it every 12 hours. Next thing they'll be placing bets on each other, on whose closest to being right.

Have an easy day, I'm sure everyone is waiting for the rain to come.

Keep saying I can do this!

HADN'T MADE ZUCCHINI BREAD FOR A LONG TIME. TOOK SOME TO WORK YESTERDAY AND MADE SOME FOR HOME TODAY. REALLY TASTES GOOD! TOO BAD I ONLY MAKE IT DURING SUMMER. I SHOULD DO IT MORE OFTEN.
I'LL TAKE SOME FOR LUNCH TOMORROW, SINCE I ALREADY HAD A PIECE THIS MORNING.

MET A LADY AT WORK WHO BELONGED TO A COUPLE OF DAHLIA CLUBS. SHE ALSO KNOWS ABOUT HOW THEY JUDGE THE NEW DAHLIA FLOWERS. SHE'S GOING TO GIVE ME A BOX OF DAHLIA'S THAT MAKE GREAT CUT FLOWERS. SHE SAYS SHE WANTS TO HELP ME DIVIDE MY DAHLIA AND HELP ME WITH THE ONE'S SHE'S GOING TO GIVE ME. I JUST HOPE I CAN KEEP THEM ALIVE, I FEEL RESPONSIBLE IF THEY DON'T MAKE IT. SHE GAVE ME ALSO INSTRUCTIONS ON TAKING CARE OF THE DAHLIA'S.

THE CART I HAD HAD 2 BIG WHEELS AND A BAR FOR STANDING IT UP. I USED IT OFTEN WHEN I WAS AT THE RESIDENCE EVEN THOUGH I WENT SHOPPING WITH MY DAUGHTER AND GRAND DAUGHTER. I LIVED ON THE SECOND FLOOR BUT WAS AT THE FAR END OF THE BUILDING SO WITH THE CART IT WAS EASIER TO TAKE THINGS UP.. THERE WERE ALSO 4 SHOPPING CARTS( GIVEN BY DIFFERENT GROCERY STORES) FOR US TO USE BUT COULD NEVER FIND ONE WHEN I NEEDED IT
IT HAS STARTED TO RAIN AND IS SUPPOSED TO ALL NIGHT, BUT BE NICE TOMORROW

Nancy, I can only remember the medicine, it's Bayatril. My spelling might be off. I go to a Vet Clinic that specializes in Exotic pets. I've been going to them since the 1990's.

I still have my cart that I bought at the Flea Market in Roseburg, California. I rarely use it, but I'm saving it for the day I'll go to the Saturday Market.

I kept them separate from the parents, but they also got the virus. I've given them the shots, but no matter what they still come back with it. I have some basking lamps that help them dry out, before I let them loose out into the yard in spring, and when fall approaches. It's just not hot enough like the desert. They run around the yard and are eating fine, its just they have a runny nose. Dino has had the virus for a very long time, since the 1960's.

KAREN, GLAD YOU HAD HELP
NANCY, DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THOSE ROLLING CARTS TO PUT SOME GROCERIES IN? MY FRIEND WHO LIVES IN VANCOUVER USES THAT TO BRING HOME HER GROCERIES IN. I AM SURE YOU ENJOY JUST BEING WITH THEM WHEN YOU SHOP, TOO.
SPEND AN HOUR PULLING WEEDS AT MY SON--THANKFULLY COULD DO IT IN STAGES AS BENDING OVER SEEMS TO PLAY HAVOC ON MY TUMMY. I FILLED A BIG TRASHBAG WITH ALL THE WEEDS. MY DH AND SON TOOK OFF AT LEAST 4 LOADS OF TREE BRANCHES AND HE TOOK OFF A LOAD BEFORE WE GOT THERE---THINK HE GOT RID OF ABOUT 4 TREES THIS WEEKEND. I DIDN'T GET THE IRIS PLANTED---JUST COULD NOT BEND OVER FOR THAT AS MY LEGS WERE SERIOUSLY PROTESTING THE WEED PULLING. I NEED ANOTHER WEEKEND TO RECOOP FROM THIS ONE---LOL
HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!
DEB, INTERESTING ABOUT THE TURTLES---DO THE NEW BABIES ALSO HAVE THE VIRUS?

LECATES AND NANCY, LOOKS LIKE I WAS TOSSED OUT OF THE CHAT FORUM. TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS, ABOUT THE TURTLES HIBERNATING. THESE ARE LAND TURTLES AND I PUT THEM IN A BIG TUB AND PUT SOME TOWELS ON THEM TO KEEP WARM IN THE GARAGE. THEY LOSE THE URGE TO EAT AND THEIR HEART SLOWS DOWN. THE CAN NEVER BE TURNED BACK TO THE WILD BECAUSE OF THE VIRUS.

SEEMS THIS WEEKEND WAS BETTER THAN I EXPECTED. WE ARE SPREADING GOOD BLEND OF COMPOST FOR THE PLANTERS. WE WILL PROBABLY NEED 4 - 6 MORE YARDS OF COMPOST. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO PLANTING SOME BULBS AND USING TH CAYENNE PEPPER FOR THE TULIPS. I HAVE A LOT TO CLEAN UP BEFORE THE RAIN HITS.

EVELYN, I SOMETIMES GET A DIFFERENT NIGHTGOWN IN THE NIGHT, OR I CAN'T GET BACK TO SLEEP. NOW FINDING THAT OTHER NIGHTGOWN CAN BE A CHALLENGE, BUT I ALWAYS DO. HA! I WENT FROM GUEST ROOM TO GUEST ROOM WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SLEEP. IT IS SO FRUSTRATING. I DON'T TAKE A NAP DURING THE DAY USUALLY, SO I SHOULD SLEEP GOOD AT NIGHT, BUT IT DOESN'T ALWAYS WORK THAT WAY. I TAKE A SMALL DOSE OF A SLEEPING PILL TOO, AND THAT USUALLY HELPS A LOT.

LECATES, I DID GET THE HOUSE CLEANED. THE MAIN PART. MY DH HELPED ME. HE'S A GOOD GUY WITH CLEANING. HE'S SO STRONG AND LIFTS FURNITURE OUT OF THE WAY AND VACUUMS BEHIND AND DOES MORE THAN I WOULD OR COULD.

HAPPY SUNDAY TO ALL!

NANCY, SUCH A BUMMER THAT YOU HAVE TO WAIT TO DO SHOPPING --GUESSING THERE IS NOT RELIABLE BUS SERVICE IN YOUR AREA. THERE IS NOT GOOD SERVICE IN MY AREA, EITHER---WILL HATE HAVING TO DEPEND ON MY BOYS FOR THAT.
KAREN, HOPE THEY GOT EVERYTHING DONE BEFORE THE STORMS. DID YOU GET THE HOUSE CLEANED?
EVELYN, NOT MUCH COLOR HERE YET---HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR DAY TRIP ON TUESDAY.
WHEN I FINALLY GOT HOME YESTERDAY, DH WAS AT MICHAEL'S WORKING ON A PROJECT SO I HAD THE WHOLE HOUSE TO MYSELF---DIDN'T TURN ON THE TV--WENT AND SAT OUT ON THE PORCH WITH MY TABLET---IT GOT QUITE CHILLY OUT THERE BUT I STAYED OUT THERE ENJOYING BEING COLD---SILLY ME! LOL
GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP LAST NIGHT---THINK BECAUSE I DIDN'T NEED AC TO STAY COOL. WE ARE GOING OVER TO MICHAEL'S AFTER CHURCH TO CUT DOWN ANOTHER TREE---I WILL PROBABLY BE PULLING WEEDS AND PLANTING IRIS THERE.
HAVE A PLEASANT SUNDAY!

MY FARMING HUSBAND AND SON ARE OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, TRYING TO GET THINGS DONE BEFORE THIS AFTERNOON, WHERE THEY'RE PREDICTING SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS. IT'S VERY WINDY RIGHT NOW, AND I NEED TO CLEAN THE HOUSE, SO WILL DO THAT TODAY.

LECATES, IT'S SO EXCITING TO HEAR THAT YOU CAN SEE BETTER WITH YOUR NEW GLASSES!! THAT IS TRULY A GIFT, ISN'T IT?! I USE GLASSES JUST FOR READING, AND HAVEN'T HAD THE STRENGTH INCREASED MUCH OVER THE YEARS, EXCEPT LATELY, AND IT FEELS SO MUCH BETTER, TO SEE CLEARLY! I'VE SEEN PUMPKIN CHIPS IN THE STORES TOO. MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS TO PUT THEM IN COOKIES OR PUMPKIN BREAD WITH RAISINS AND NUTS. YUM, THESE SOUND SO GOOD AND I'M TRYING TO CUT OUT SUGAR!!

NANCY, I HOPE YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER BONE MARROW TEST, BUT IF THEY DO, IT WILL BE FOR THE BETTER. THEY'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU. emoticon

NANCY, DID YOU GET TO GO SHOPPING? i DID AND FOUND SOME NEW PUMPKIN THINGS TO TRY---I AM A SUCKER FOR THAT STUFF---LOL---EVEN FOUND PUMPKIN CHIPS TO USE IN BAKING---NOT SURE HOW I WILL USE THEM, THOUGH.
EVELYN, I DON'T WANT SNOW BUT GLAD TO HAVE COOLER WEATHER STARTING TODAY.
MY GLASSES CAME IN YESTERDAY SO I WENT RIGHT AFTER WORK TO GET THEM---NICE TO BE ABLE TO SEE AGAIN---BIG DIFFERENCE AND I AM HAPPY.
WORKING THE GREENHOUSES AT SCHOOL TODAY---HOPE BUSY ENOUGH TO KEEP ME OCCUPIED BUT NOT SUPER BUSY AS IT WILL JUST BE 2 OF US AS THE STUDENTS AND TEACHER ARE GOING TO BE AT AN EVENT ELSEWHERE.
I GOT THE CAKE BAKED AND DECORATED FOR THE LADIES EVENT---BUT MIGHT JUST DROP IT OFF AND COME HOME IF TOO TIRED OR DIRTY FROM THE GARDEN CENTER---WE WILL SEE.
HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY---ENJOY SOME OUTDOOR TIME IF YOU CAN!

LECATES,, IF HE WANTS ANOTHER BONE MARROW TEST HE WILL HAVE TO KNOCK ME OUT. I WILL NOT GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN.. WENT FOR THE BLOOD TESTS THIS MORNING AND SHE DREW 9 VIALS,, SHE SAID BOY YOUR DOCTOR REALLY WANTS ME TO DRAIN YOU. LOL

I REFUSED TO EVEN STAND OR SIT ON THE WINDOW LEDGE TO DO THE OUTSIDE WINDOW, IF THE LANDLORD CANNOT SEND SOMEONE TO DO IT THEN IT CAN STAY DIRTY. I AM ON THE FIRST FLOOR SO CAN YOU IMAGINE THE SECOND FLOOR? I ASKED THE MAN UPSTAIRS IF HE HAD A TRICK AND HE HAD DONE THE SAME AS ME, THE MIDDLE WINDOW THAT DOES NOT OPEN STAYED DIRTY

HOPING MY GRAND DAUGHTER WILL WANT TO GO SHOPPING THIS EVENING.. I NEED WOOL AND A WALLET.. MY WALLET HAS HAD IT'S DAY ,, WELL BETTER DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE BUT THEN TOO NOT TOO MUCH TO DO. SO I MAY DO SOME SEWING (CHRISTMAS GIFTS)

HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY EVERYONE AND TAKE CARE

NANCY, HOPEFULLY IT IS JUST SOMETHING MINOR THAT IS TREATABLE WITH MEDS---HOPE HE DOESN'T WANT ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TESTS. i SHOULD WASH MY SCREENS---SHOULD ALSO WASH MY WINDOWS BUT i AM NOT GETTING UP ON A LADDER TO DO THAT. BUT THAT MIGHT BE A PROJECT FOR DH TO TAKE THE STORM WINDOWS OFF THE LIVING ROOM WINDOWS IN THE PORCH SO THAT AT LEAST I CAN CLEAN THEM..
KAREN, IF YOUR TRIGLIDERIDES ARE DOWN, THAT IS GOOD---I THINK THEY ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE CHOLESTEROL.
HAD ANOTHER GOOD DAY---THINK DEHYDRATION WAS TRULY MY ISSUE---HAD MUCH MORE ENERGY WHEN I GOT HOME YESTERDAY AND PUT UP SOME OF MY FALL DECOR---DH NEEDS TO BRING UP WHAT IS DOWN IN THE BASEMENT FOR ME AND WE NEED TO DIG IN THE SHED FOR MY OUTDOOR STUFF THAT IS IN THERE. I AM WORKING THE GREENHOUSES AT SCHOOL TOMORROW FOR MY WINTER PANSIES AND A COUPLE OF MUMS. LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING OUT THERE--ALSO GOING TO SPRUCE UP THE FLOWER DISPLAY BEDS AS SOME PLANTS NEED TO BE PULLED OUT---WILL DO THIS ONLY IF WE ARE NOT BUSY.
HAVE A GOOD DAY---HOPING THIS IS THE LAST DAY OF 80'S FOR US!

I'M WISHING YOU THE BEST WITH YOUR UPCOMING APPT., NANCY. TOMORROW MORNING I'LL BE FASTING FOR GETTING A CHOLESTEROL TEST TAKEN. IT SHOULD PROVE INTERESTING, LIKE EVERY TIME DOES. MY OVERALL TOTAL IS A LITTLE OVER 3OO, MY HDL IS USUALLY HIGH, UP OFF THE CHARTS, LIKE LAST TIME WAS 121. MY TRIGYLICERIDES ARE DOWN AT 81, THE LAST TEST. SO I'M NOT ON ANY MEDICINE. I'M ONLY 5'2" AND ABOUT 206#, SO WITH THEM SAYING THAT CHOLESTEROL DOESN'T ALWAYS TELL IT LIKE IT IS, THAT'S SO RIGHT! WITH BEING THIS HEAVY, I SHOULD BE TOAST, BUT I'M GLAD I'M NOT. ALL I HAVE TO DO IS LOSE WEIGHT! WHEN I LOOK AT THIS PROJECT OVERALL, IT DOESN'T SEEM SO BAD, THAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS SIMPLE, UNTIL ALL THE JUNK AND SNACKS LURK AROUND!!

GUESS EVERYONE IS BUSY EVE.. I KNOW I WAS . STARTED OUT BY TAKING THE SCREENS OFF OF THE FRONT WINDOWS , PUT THEM IN THE BATH TUB AND GAVE THEM A GOOD WASHING,, THEN DID THE WINDOWS INSIDE AND OUT IN MY BEDROOM., THE LIVING ROOM I COULD ONLY DO THE INSIDE,, REALLY DIDN'T FEEL LIKE KILLING MYSELF..LOL NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO CLEAN THE TUB AFTERWARDS.. UNBELIEVABLE BUT THEN TOO WITH THE BREAKING OF THE CEMENT AND .DUMPING GRAVEL BEFORE THE CEMENT WAS DONE,,I GUESS IT WAS NORMAL.

TOMORROW I HAVE TO GO FOR BLOOD WORK FOR THE HEMATOLOGIST AND MY MIND IS WORKING OVERTIME. WHEN I HAD THE BONE MARROW BIOPSY HE SAID HE WOULD CALL ME IN THREE WEEKS AND IF THERE WAS ANYTHING WE HAD TO TALK ABOUT HE WOULD GIVE ME AN APPOINTMENT THEN,, OTHERWISE IT WOULD BE A FOLLOW UP IN 3 TO 6 MONTHS,, WELL ONE MONTH AFTER THE BIOPSY THE OFFICE CALLED TO GIVE ME AN APPOINTMENT emoticon

WAS A COOL DAY TODAY AND THE LEAVES HAVE STARTED TO FALL SO WE KNOW WHAT SEASON HAS STARTED..HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD DAY

NANCY, DOCTORS HATE TO BE PROVED WRONG---LOL---YOUR MEMORY IS FINE--HE JUST NEVER LOOKED AT THOSE THINGS CLOSELY BEFORE HE SPOKE--TYPICAL MALE--LOL AND I NEVER THOUGHT MUCH ABOUT WHAT TURTLES DO IN THE WINTER SO IT'S NOT DUMB TO NOT KNOW.
EVELYN, GOOD FOR YOU IN TRYING A NEW CHALLENGE. NO TIME TO JOIN ANOTHER TEAM FOR ME--BUT I TRY TO GET IN AT LEAST 10 MINUTES EVERY DAY WHEN i AM SUPER BUSY--MAKES ME FEEL BETTER JUST TO GET IN A 10 MINUTE WALK NOW AND THEN AS IT GIVES ME MORE ENERGY FOR OTHER STUFF.
WE HAVE MORE RAIN YESTERDAY THAN EXPECTED BUT THAT IS GOOD---THINK THE REST OF THE WEEK WILL BE CLEAR.

LECATES. EYE EXAM WENT WELL AND HE TRIES TO TELL ME THERE IS NO CHANGE. NO BETTER , NO WORSE. HOWEVER I ARGUED WITH HIM ON ANOTHER MATTER, IN MARCH MY DAUGHTER MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR ME TO SEE HIM AS SHE SAW BLOOD IN MY LEFT EYE, I SAW HIM AND HE GAVE ME A PAPER TO SEE THE SPECIALIST, I SAW A SPECIALIST AT THE HOSPITAL THE NEXT DAY AND HAD TO WAIT 1 MONTH FOR THE BLOOD TO ABSORB,, I WENT BACK TO HOSPITAL IN APRIL 2016 FOR A LASER TREATMENT.
WELL HE TRIED TO TELL ME THAT HE HAD GIVEN ME THAT PAPER LAST SEPTEMBER, IF HE HAD GIVEN ME THE PAPER IN SEPTEMBER 2015 WHY WOULD I GAVE WAITED TILL APRIL 2016? I DON'T ARGUE IF THERE IS A DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT I MAY BE WRONG BUT WHEN I KNOW I AM RIGHT I COULD ARGUE TILL WE ARE BLUE IN THE FACE, WHEN HE SAID THE PAPERS ARE ON HIS DESK ALONG WITH THE RESULTS FROM THE HOSPITAL,, WELL THAT WAS THE END OF THE ARGUMENT CAUSE I TOLD HIM TO SHOW ME THE PAPERS, MY GRAND DAUGHTER WAS WITH ME AND SHE SAID "IF MY GRANDMOTHER IS ARGUING IT IS CAUSE SHE IS RIGHT" HE LOOKED AT THE PAPERS AND DID NOT SAY A THING. NO EVEN YOU ARE RIGHT, PISSED WAS NOT THE WORD, I JUST LEFT

DEB, I LEARNT SOMETHING NEW FROM YOUR LAST POST, I DID NOT KNOW THAT TURTLES HIBERNATED, emoticon emoticon emoticon DUMB DE DUMB DUMB AND LIKE LECATES ASKED, DO YOU HAVE TO DO ANYTHING SPECIAL FOR THEM, DON'T THEY EVER GET OUT OF THE POND IN YOUR YARD? IS YOUR POND FENCED IN ?

ANOTHER NICE DAY TODAY, SUNNY AND COOL BUT THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR THAT I ENJOY THE MOST,, TAKE CARE EVERYONE

NANCY, HOW WAS THE EYE CHECK UP? BOY, DO I NEED TO MY NEW PRESCRIPTION VERY SOON---I HAD TO ENLARGE MY PAGES TO MAKE IT EASIER TO READ---AND BOY, DOES IT MAKE IT A LOT EASIER IN CAPS, TOO
WE MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE AUTUMN WEATHER ON SUNDAY---MIGHT NOT HIT 70 THAT DAY---I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT!

Nancy, I've had one out of the 7 turtles, since 1959. His name is Dino, who visited me when I had my tonsils out when I was 6 years old. During winter I bring them in the garage and let them go into hibernation. They stop eating around October and will wake up around March. Last year they woke up in the middle of February. These are all land turtles, which I'm hoping one of my daughters will take care of them after I croak!. They are domesticated, so they can never go back into the wild. Dino is probably near 80 years old, and the female is around 40. We have 4 babies left, but we've lost a few due to climate change or the virus. The oldest baby is 20 years and the youngest about 7 years. The female doesn't always produce fertile eggs every year and she doesn't lay every year. When she does lay, I have my incubator to put the eggs in, hoping for more babies.

Keep saying I can do this!

IT'S BEEN RAINING HERE, SINCE SATURDAY. DECIDED TO CUT THE SUNFLOWER OFF ITS STALK AND HANG IT TO DRY IN THE GARAGE. YESTERDAY IT WAS SUNNY FOR MOST OF THE DAY AND IT WILL BE RAINING FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK, OFF AND ON.
THE TURTLES ARE ABOUT READY TO COME IN, SO I'M PUTTING A HEAT LAMP ON THEM SO THEY STAY WARM WHILE THE WEATHER STARTS TO COOL DOWN. ONCE THEY STOP EATING IT WILL BE TIME TO BRING THEM IN FOR THE FALL.

SPEAKING OF FALL, FALL HAS BEEN HERE FOR QUITE A FEW WEEKS, BUT IT ALWAYS KILLS ME WHEN THEY HAVE AN OFFICIAL DAY TO CALL FALL, WHICH IS THIS THURSDAY, THE 22ND.

I ENJOYED MY VACATION AT RICHARDSON PARK, IN EUGENE, OR. I ACTUALLY FEEL RESTED AND HAPPY TO BE HOME.

NANCY, LIKE YOUR PICTURE!

Keep saying I can do this!

EVELYN, GLAD YOUR BROTHER CAN HELP HER WITH THINGS--REMIND HER TO TAKE IT EASY.
NANCY, DOES YOUR DOG MIND GOING OUT IN THE RAIN?
MY PEPPER PLANTS ARE FINALLY PRODUCING---DH CAME IN TO TELL ME THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH ONE OF THE PLANTS---THE PEPPER IS BRIGHT PURPLE---LOL---HE FORGOT THAT I PLANTED ALL DIFFERENT COLORS IN MY PEPPERS TODAY--I AM THRILLED TO HAVE A COLORFUL PRODUCING. LOOKS LIKE ONE GREEN PEPPER IS ABOUT READY TO PICK---MAYBE AFTER WE HAVE THIS RAIN I WILL PICK IT THEN---NOTHING GROWING REALLY BIG BUT PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF RAIN FOR THE LAST MONTH.
WE WENT TO MY CHURCH LAST NIGHT FOR MOVIE NIGHT---SAW GOD'S NOT DEAD2--REALLY GOOD AND I RELATED TOTALLY TO IT BECAUSE OF WORKING IN A HIGH SCHOOL.
RAIN COMING MY WAY---i HOPE---HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

TODAY I PICKED STUFF IN THE GARDEN. THE TOMATO PLANTS ARE ALMOST DONE. THE CUCUMBERS HAVE A FEW SMALL ONES ON THAT ARE GROWING. MY BEANS ARE STILL GOING WELL. I THINK IT MAY BE A COUPLE MORE WEEKS BEFORE I CAN PUT THE GARDENS TO BED FOR THE WINTER. I AM STARTING THE CLEAN UP BUT I DONT WANT TO WRECK THE STUFF THAT IS STILL PRODUCING. WITH ALL THE ROCK BEDS I DONT WANT TO PLANT BULBS ALTHOUGH I WILL SEE IF THE IRISES SURVIVE NEXT SPRING.

WE GOT RAIN YESTERDAY FROM ABOUT 5pm.. WHEN I GOT HOME AT MIDNIGHT IT WAS FALLING QUITE HARD BUT CAME IN, TOOK OFF MY SHOES, PICKED UP MY UMBRELLA AND TOOK KIRBY TO THE CORNER AND BACK.. HE HADN'T BEEN OUT SINCE 3pm, SO HE HAD HIS DOZEN SQUIRTS AND WE CAME HOME ,, TOO TIRED TO SLEEP THOUGH. THE ONLY TIME HE WILL LET OUT A BARK IS IF SOMEONE KNOCKS ON THE DOOR OR RINGS THE BELL AND HE THINKS I DON;T HEAR IT,, BUT IT IS A ONE BARK .. I AM THE SAME I CANNOT TAKE A DOG BARKING ALL THE TIME,, GUESS I AM GETTING OLD CAUSE WE HAD DOGS ALL OUR LIVES AND THE BARKING DIDN'T BOTHER ME THEN.

THE ROSES ARE WHAT WE CALL WILD ROSES, THEY DO NOT HAVE TO BE PROTECTED AND LOVE TO BE COVERED WITH THE SNOW, I GUESS I WILL TRY TO GET THEM AND PUT THEM INTO THE POTS, HEY THEY WON'T COST ME ANYTHING SO IF THEY MAKE IT FINE, IF NOT FINE TOO

HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE
