I'm a Browns' fan Joan (tough as it is since they brought the team back) LOL I always bring paperbacks when we travel - that's about the only time I really get to read. I brought two this weekend, but only read a part of one. Brought one of my baby afghans to work on but haven't touched it yet.

JOY - good to see you! Sure wish we'd end up in TN the same time once!!

The rain eased to a light rain, so we walked down to the rose gardens. Then it cleared off beautifully so we headed to the gorge area and the glass blowers. Got almost there and a dark cloud showed up and WOW - it poured and it hailed. Thank GOD there was a bridge overpass so we ducked under there for protection. LOL It stopped and we continued on. My wimpy ex SIL and girlfriend got a taxi to go back - the rest of us walked. Probably got more than five miles in today! WooHoo. Relaxing at the motel now and off to Beef Baron for dinner at 7.

9/8—I use my Kindle a lot. I get a lot of free books this way. I still read paper books because sometimes I miss them (the pictures on the front cover, going back to check a fact, etc.). I think I’ll always like having a real book in my hands.
I started my exercise program yesterday. Since my knees have gotten worse, my old routines fell by the wayside. I do 10 minutes right now and hope to increase that each week. I don’t think I’ll ever get back to the chair dancing routines I used to do, but who knows????
It’s been a quiet day for me today. A little laundry, a little cleaning, a little napping, hehehe. The weather is cool (about 66 degrees). Tomorrow it should be 70 degrees.
Oh, and tomorrow is the first Packer Game of the season. They did OK in pre-season but hope they do even better now. Aaron Rodgers has turned out to be a very good Quarterback. He is a really nice guy too. The people in this area like him as well as (maybe better than) Brett Favre.
I lost 2 lbs my first week on the diet, so that’s good. Now, I just have to keep it up.

Hello All,
Been MIA quite a while. Just came back from a week in Tennessee for our annual Family gathering over labor day weekend. Got a nasty UTI night before leaving but thank goodness I have a wonderful doctor here in chicago at northwestern. She called in a script and I was able to make the trip back yesterday and arrived home at 11:30 last night!

Looks like I missed a fun discussion on "Pixie Granny" - :-)

Sorry Heather I like to see people's pictures. Now I have to figure out which fairy is which.
I finally got used to Gracie but there's only one of her I see.

I'm having a tough time figuring out my pictures on my computer. I downloaded Picassa in the end of April and it did some strange things to my pictures. I deleted it today and I am working on pictures for the rest of the day.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend

Heather - the Pixie Grammy is CUTE!!! You have fun with those Pixies in the Forest!!

Grace, THANKS for the memory nudge - yes, I sure do remember her - please tell her hello for me!!!

Joan - that doesn't sound very pleasant, but glad it's all taken care of now!!

Rainy here in Canada, as predicted. Not sure what we're doing today - play it by ear. Andrea and Jim are off to the Ripley museum.

Hope everyone has a good day!

So how r u doing Merri? It,s been a while since I,ve been on here.
I recently had a small scare. I had 3 per-cancerous skin moles removed from my face. 2 of them healed right away. The other became infected, and I had to go on antibiotics. It is just now healing (3 months later).

Hi Claire!!! Glad you made it here!!! And now I even know your name! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Peggy, that doesn't sound very pleasant! Glad it's over!

Heather - my goodness - what a day you had! I can understand why DH told you to go to bed before anything else happened!

Merri - supposed to rain all day here tomorrow! Hoping they're wrong - but oh well........

Steph, that pain will ease as it heals - your poor body has been through so much!

We walked down to Horseshoe Falls and then came back up to the garden to watch the fireworks from there. Veggin' out in the room now - going to call it a night soon. The whole group made it up here. Amy and her two just got here around 10 - she had to work a full day - the rest of them only worked half a day.

emoticon to have been MIA everyone but I was busy becoming a new grammy!~ See my Blog for pictures of Anjulie

Besides that...my BLC has gone into a whirlwind!~~lol...they have so many things for you to do when they first are starting that it took me most of today on my computer just trying to catch up and get some things done.

Then DH has been busy trying to replace the trailer floor with new underlay and a laminate flooring. He is getting htere....almost done....hmmmm...just thinking...I will get some pictures of it as he has done well.....still not finished but getting there. So all day I have been going in and out and back and forth both with coffees/cokes etc....and also holding pieces of wood for him to cut....

In the meantime...on one trip to the trailer....I had my hand on the joint of the door...the wind blew the door closed....jammed my thumb right good where the skin meets the nail...small cut...a wee bit of blood...loads of cursing and swearing from me...and got a headache for referred pains.... emoticon DH turned white...I think he thought I had lost the tip of my thumb what with all my cursing.... emoticon
Long story short...cut was minimal....small mark there tonight...and NOT hardly any pain!

Then at suppertime...went to pour nthe hot water off the corn on the cob...instead of using the tongs to remove them I poured the water and corn into a metal sieve....BUT~~~ stupidly held the sieve in my hand rather then sit it in the sink....
YUP~~boiling water came through the side openings and scalded a few fingers....

emoticon that too os okay here tonight....
DH said....maybe you should go straight to bed after supper or next it will be you cracking open your noggin! ~~ emoticon

So....will say emoticon to everyone and will try catching up on your postings tomorrow and Sunday....
emoticon
Will copy and paste this over on the RV'ers thread as I am way too tired right now to write it all out again......( just in case anyone is also over on that thread )

Hi! Joyce suggested I come to the daily chat....I usually huddle and check in on the wheel spin.
Also follow one of the game threads. Love SP but right now am working FT at a very demanding, high stress level job in the health care field. (nurse management) so I " jump on my iPad in the AM and try to get some quick points in and set a positive tone for the day. This summer I had some time off and that is when I found SP. This is my year to shine...will be 64 on Monday and by 65 be looking and feeling healthier and happier. Maybe even able to cut back on hours working! Will do my best to check in on occasion. Thanks for all your support, humor, suggestions and just a great place to connect with friends!

Jo Ann - the pain only hurts where they cut me open. I'm sure in time that will get better..and I'm staying on top of my pain meds..yes...I am!! It's just...I haven't felt "WELL" Since May...so my body is tired of hurting. Thankfully this is a different type of hurt. It will get better...I will get better.

PEGGY - praying!! HUGS

It sounds all of you gals are just getting so busy this fall. We got rain twice here now today. We did get our grocery shopping done tho and that was all we had to do today...

It looks like we may be in for some little bit cooler weather after this rain is over with...

Peggy, that sounds like one big ordeal the test you went through. Oh my goodness LOL I sure hope you test turns out great for you...

Alice your DIL is on the Rangers with me now it's almost like I know someone.
does she live near you?

the test was ok they insert this loooong wand inside you and then she looks around at your ovaries and whatever else is in there. it's even an interactive test. You have to push on your stomach to get your bowels away from your ovaries. what fun but it only took 15 minutes.
Now I have to wait until Monday for the results because my Dr closes at noon on Friday.

Peggy, hope the test went well! Was thinking of you!

Liz - we can't have your posts disappearing! That's just not right!! LOL Glad Mary and Karyn are with you there - I know you'll make them feel right at home! YAY on the new freezer!

We arrived in Canada safely - had a good trip and the border guard was nice - that's not always the case. LOL

We'll walk down to Horseshoe falls tonight and watch the fireworks at dark. Still supposed to rain tomorrow - but we always manage to make the best of any situation.

Hi Everyone! 90 and sunny again!!! Football game across the street tonight so our street is jumping today!

Well, I just came back from buying a new freezer! We have a small appliance store near us with excellent prices and service. They may deliver is this afternoon. One week without one is enough for me! Yesterday I went to BJ's and forgot I don't have one any more. Luckily, I remembered before I got to the checkout, so I put all the large frozen items back. I bought a smaller frost-free, energy-efficient one. Three shelves, a basket in the bottom and 5 small shelves on the door. It's perfect for us.

I posted here yesterday, but today my post is gone! I don't know why that happens sometimes. I'm on the Prism Panthers again! I'm very happy with the team. It's for maintainers, so the emphasis is a little different. Mary and Karyn from Teal Troopers are new members and NancyRags is returning. It looks like it's going to be a fun, friendly team!

Joyce - we're supposed to get rain tomorrow, too. But have a fun trip anyway!

Peggy - good luck this afternoon! Is that the test where you have to drink nearly a gallon on water and can't pee so the bladder is full? I had that one done! Fun!!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Grace, what's Maureen's screen name? I should remember, but I don't........I think she was on while I was still a Trooper.

Morning got shorter for me - we have to go pick Austin up at his vocational school at 11:15. He wanted to get his welding lab in before we go. Oh well, stop at the bank on the way. Good thing I don't have too much to get done this morning.

Weather not looking good in Candada. 80% chance of rain tomorrow! We'll walk to Horseshoe Falls today when we get there and see the fireworks tonight. Afraid our usual Saturday activities will end up being hanging out at the motel by the pool. Pretty expensive way to relax, but it is what it is. Sunday to the American side to meet Vicki and Lisa for a few hours and hope it's not raining then.

Hope everyone has a good weekend! Taking the laptop, so should be able to keep up.

Yikes, with BLC opening the doors, things are hopping! I thought I was having trouble before keeping up with this thread! Double Yikes!

We have a former Trooper on the Ninjas - Maureen??? I've just started greeting the new Ninjas so don't know much about anybody!

Peggy, you'll get those Rangers hopping if they weren't chatty before! You can do it! LOL

I've got an early morning - embroidery/quilting seminar all day tomorrow and Saturday! I'm so excited - I love them!

I'll try and keep up!

Hugs to all!

Kathy, bless your heart for driving that gentleman - I'm sure he adores you! Have a safe trip to VT. Our trip to Canada is a go - the memorial service for Chance's grandma is NEXT Saturday. I am soooo disappointed not to have you partying with us on Clifton Hill! What a great time we would have had. Just a bummer it's so far in between our being able to get together. If Ohio wasn't so far west of the routes you and Peggy take back and forth we could get together a lot more often! :-(

Peggy, sorry you didn't get your team of choice on BLC. Are there others on that team that you know? I hope so and I sure hope it will be a more active team next round!

How many of you here are Pixies??? I keep forgetting where you are! Grace and Jo Ann - I know you both are still on BLC. Kathy and I both got out for now. Who else is still there? I know Donna from the former RedHots is on an ivory team...don't recall the name now.

Well, we'll be leaving around noon tomorrow for Canada - will take my laptop and keep up with you the best I can.

We went to Austin's soccer game - his team ended up in a 1-1 tie. The varsity had just gotten under way when there was lightning and the officials stopped the game. They have to wait half an hour after the last lightning seen, so we decided to leave. Stopped and got our snacks for the trip/room and glad I did. I thought we were leaving at 2 and it got changed to noon. LOL Need to get to the bank for some $$ in the morning - but everything else is ready.

Have a great rest everyone - catchya tomorrow.......

Jennifer came over this morning. We made a Halloween wreath using a stryofoam wreath, faux fur and oogly eyes. For those on FB I posted a picture. We had faux fur all over the place. Jennifer finally got the hair spray and sprayed as we went along with putting them together. Had a great time with Jennifer. She found the project on Pinterest. She's become addicted to that web site...LOL Found a cute pattern from a 'free' pad of projects at Hobby Lobby...it is crocheted using variegated yarn that is crocheted in a circular pattern, real easy...then crocheted together. I thought it would be really cute for Kiersten.

Peggy - So sorry that you didn't get on the Pixies. I see that Heather and Alice are there.

Kathy - Safe travels

Joyce - Good to read that Andera is fine. Safe travels for you too.

Steph - Staples out…why so much pain…just what your body has been through? Are you staying on top of the pain once you get it under control with pain meds? Enough is enough…huh! Here's to complete on the road mending!

Sorry you didn't get the Pixies Peggy!! Hoping the Rangers will prove to be an active bunch.

Wishing all good luck with the new BLC!!

We're leaving tomorrow morning to make the trip up to VT. for Joanne's memorial on Sunday. Will get back home on Monday then the appts. all start in earnest. Gotta get them all in before we head back down to Fl!!

Today is the 1 yr. anniversary of losing our Boy and I just found out via FB that friends are saying farewell to theirs today too. So Sad!! We found a great memorial for him which looks like a rock with a heart on the front. It says "Always in our Hearts" and the interior is hollow so have his ashes in it along with some treasures. I'll take a picture and post it so you can see what I mean. We'll put it out in our yard in a spot he always wanted to get into, my corner garden!!!

Drove my favorite guy, Mr. Witt to his foot dr. this morning. He's such a dear man, smart, engaged, entertaining and only 91!! Today we discussed sports since he said he wasn't doing well cause the Giants lost last night!!! I couldn't be happier, but then you all know how I feel about them!! We also talked Yankees which we both love!!! Driving him next week too, such a pleasure...

Ok off for now. May get on from VT, not really sure cause it's been hit or miss.....

Darn I didn't get on the Pixies but I saw that Heather did too.
I'm on the Rose Rangers or something. It looks like they didn't do that much talking in BLC 19 I hope they get active this time.

Good deal Alice - hope you all get where you want to be!!

Andrea's fine. Dr. Chen said he didn't know why they told her to follow up with him, said they could have had those results at the e.r. in five minutes! DUH. She told him they wanted to give her an antibiotic and she turned it down. He told her GOOD - you didn't NEED anything. Asked about her ear (that was what she was there for last time and he gave her the antibiotics for it.) She told him it was fine. He said "good, the antibiotics did their job then." She laughed and said "yeah, they did LOTS of things - but she didn't elaborate." Did tell him she was pregnant and he asked how far along - maybe he put 2 and 2 together. LOL But anyhow, he said since it had stopped on its own, it was nothing to worry about and the test was negative for any infection.

Went from there to the salon in Kent she used to work at to try and get her job verification paper done. The woman who has to be the one to sign it left ten minutes before we got there! DANG!

Andy's mowing lawn, I'm going to gather up stuff to pack, then off to Austin's soccer game at 4. Think we'll stop at WM on the way home to pick up what we need for the weekend. I found a blank film clip, so I don't have to try and get to my usual WM to download and empty the other two just yet. It can wait.

Heather! - can't wait to hear that GD has arrived safely!

Off to take Andrea to her dr. appt. I think everything is good with her now. Some of our nurse friends think it most likely was a hemorrhoid, but will see dr to get the test results to be safe.

Austin has soccer at 5, so need to leave at 4 for that - busy day.......

Have a good one all of you!!

Morning All! It's still in the 90's here but it's cooler at night. Fall is coming!

DH and I both have living wills. Tom's mother had one too for quite a while and always said she didn't want to be kept alive, but they force fed her anyway. Her Dr. said he didn't think she undertood what she signed. She did! She survived for 18 months in a nursing home unaware of her surroundings until her money was gone. There was nothing he could do once they started the feeding. We thought it was barbaric. I will come back and haunt anyone who does that to me and have told my kids that. They know I'm not joking!

Joyce - you're having some week! Hope things settle down for you.

Heather - babies come when they come!!! I remember pacing, too!

Peggy - good thing you're taking charge of your health care!

Prayers going up Peggy! Looking forward to our lunch! Got lots to catch up on, make sure to bring lots of pics of Mr. Adin and I'll do the same of Faith!!!

JoAnn, my Mom also had a DNR and of course, being the only child left I was the witness and also the recipient of everything left to do. She felt very relieved to have that DNR and almost to the end reminded me that it was her wish. Joyce, that's sad that the brothers are at odds with her end of life.

Waymon must REALLY like having his TV to drive 8 hrs. for the connector!! I can't see David doing that at all!! Unless of course football was at stake!! Isn't there a town close by where he could have gotten the connector?

Had fun bowling with friends today. They brought their young neighbor and his 2 little boys, 4 and 18 mos. Great time with 2 little ones! Doesn't happen very often!!

Grace, have a great time and be sure to let me know when you know your itinerary for Florida!! Mom will be fine especially with your brother looking out for her...

JoAnn, Merri, Lizzi, and everyone, a big shout out!!

Kathy in NY and FL

Joyce - The DNR makes it legal, just wish it was one of my other siblings. It helps knowing that it is Mom's wishes being followed.

Peggy - Thanks for the why...will send prayers!

Peggy, it's really good that you are so proactive with all that. Of course prayers are with you!!

Jo Ann, it's good your Mom did that DNR if that's her wish - takes the pressure off family. In Chance's grandmother's case, the one son said STOP, the other disagreed, but they stopped anyhow.....even though the doctor said they could bring her back. Causing issues between the brothers now. :-(

The pelvic sonogram it to check for ovarian cancer. I had it done in 08 after my Mother died of ovarian cancer and now I am having it again since my sister was diagnosed in June with ovarian cancer.

Late morning...went to aerobics and soon off to meet the retirees for lunch, then take my Mom shopping. It took her a long time but she finally recovered from the cellulitis.

Joyce - Wow what an evening...that is one birthday that won't be forgotten in many ways! Glad that Andrea is all right...always better to err on the side of caution. My Mom had me witness her DNR...I looked at her and told her...now I would be on a guilt trip when the time came...she told me not to worry, that those are her wishes. I told her, I know but still!

Grace - It has been awhile since you, Dan and Ben have headed out in the RV...long trip and well deserved! Safe travels.

Peggy - What is the pelvic sonogram for? Of course, prayers being sent! I was wondering when you'd be heading to NY for a stay.

Heather - Politics...doesn't seem to matter which country...it always something going on!
