You are right, can't do it.

Talked to Rose. She's not happy, but she is jumping through the hoops to get control of her finances again, or at least get it away from her kids.

Spun 5 and 3 today.

Here BJs is a Pizza Chain. Pretty good pizza, great beer.

The switch box on the pump went out at the farm today. Got sunburnt hauling water to animals until it could get fixed. (got a running stream through the place, but its going down fast. ) 93 degrees is just to hot for critters without water that's a fact. Won't lie the first time a pig dumped the water I poured into its trough I cussed and cried. but stupid pig had a good time wallowing in it. LOL

The continued search is on for ROSE.

Spun a three and a five this wholesome Wednesday morning, 20 June 2018.

Costco is about twenty miles from us and we do not drive there to get gas but will stop in there for gas if in that area. We also have two BJs that are within twenty miles to the north and west of us..

So you are a "Nap sneaker". You get them whenever you can sneak them in. Say nap sneaker three times fast. And I bet you can't

I paid $3.19 today. At the AM/PM with cash (40 something miles to the nearest Costco).

Didn't find Rose, but tomorrow is another day.

Spun double nickels today.

Fell asleep while Noah was in music lessons. His teacher said something like, "I wondered how you did it, now I know, you sneak in naps. Hahahahaha

Glad you didn't loose power. Did you have any warning about the storm. Spring is going out with a bang on our side of this great nation.

off to bed.

The search is on for Rose. Finding Rose is the task.

We had a blast last night. Weather blast. All of a sudden the wind, rain, darkness of very thick clouds. Lightening and thunder. Some lost their power. We did not. Exciting. And then it was over and quiet. So quiet!

Spun a big TWO and a five this terrific Tuesday morning, 19 June 2018.

How much are you paying for gasoline in Adna?

Happy Fathers day. I hope you heard from all of your kids and did something interesting.

Bunker Hill Day. I went back to read a little more up on it as well. The monument has 295 steps and not 284. Those last eleven are the hardest too.

Oh! I bet you had a blast at his party. I will share with the kids about Bunker Hill. I've heard of it, I know I studied it, but if I hadn't just read what you said, I don't think I could have told you anything other then it was a battle.

did a lot of moving today. We are almost into the new house. Then we can get the mobil fixed up for our friends and then start the long process of building. (I really think I'll wait a few months at least before I get started.)

Spun double threes today. I'm pooped. And tomorrow is miss Nonie day!!! do off to bed I go.

We are all proud of LINDA! You are a "hard" worker and contribute so much to the success of any ongoing event. You roll of your sleeves and just do it.

Today is Bunker Hill Day. June 17 2018 but back on 17 June 1775 it was the first major American Revolution battle fought on Breeds Hill.. A few years ago I climbed the 284 steps of the monument.

Spun a five and a seven this spectacular Saturday morning, 17 June 2018

Our first born, a son, was born on 17 June - and guess what we have a birthday party to attend today. WooHoo!

What an amazing trip. I'm sure you will have a blast.

I got the flag holder up at the new house, but forgot the flag at the old house. I'll be flying it most of the time.

Today was our 2nd annual end of the school year party. It was much better received this year. So many of the parents who came thanked me and asked me to do another. I told them I would be glad to help they with their party. (Proud of me?)

Spun a 5 and a three today. I'm off to bed. I took an over the counter sleep aid, and it's making me panicky. Best to go to sleep and let it run it course, after I flush the rest of the bottle.

Healthy, Healthy, Healthy!

Here we are on fabulous Friday. Spun a pair of fives this fabulous Friday, 15 June 2018.

Six months of the year 2018 have almost all flown by. I do hope you put your USA flag out yesterday. Be a proud Veteran and display your flag as often as you are able to.. It does not have to be "Flag Day". And we got the Fourth of July coming up soon. We are going to be in San Antonio, Texas on this 4th of July celebrating 150 years of ELKS U.S.A. at their annual National Rally.

What a great idea!!!! I’ll do that tomorrow and let you know how it turns out.

Spun a three. We are at the new house tonight and of course I forgot my computer. I can’t figure out how to bonus spin on the phone.

I’m proud of what I got done today. The new 1/2 bath is now painted. I used a sprayer for the first time and so far it doesn’t look too bad. (There is no light in there and my glasses are covered in spray) hahahahahaha

My first summer school student starts tomorrow, his dad is dropping him off at 6:30. Hence is camping at the new house. Lol.

"Thirsty" Thursday! Spun a three and a five this "thirsty" Thursday, 14 June 2018.

Do you have a local paper that has an Editorial Page for subscribers to write to? I have read your comments on Rose over the last three days to my wife, Sheila, and felt that you should write to some newspaper editorial page. Some paper may pick up this writing and take some action.

Thank you for sharing this heat-breaking story. And this is probably repeated many times across our Great America.

Today is Flag Day. Please display our U.S. A. Flag.

I have found great relief in both my shoulders and my hands from the shots. I hope you find relief too.

well found out today why they didn't come and help her, she is being shunned because she took help from another church (the soup kitchen). So sad.

Good questions. The police did come by while we were working and I asked them some questions. She was evicted for 1. not paying her bills so the bank took it back, but long before that she was living without water or power. She was unable to keep the local drug addicts out of her place. I gave him the "isn't that you job" look. He told me they ran them off often but they kept coming back. (Proof to that some showed up asking for handouts and asking Rose to take them to the store.) I was able to get them to leave by telling them what work to do. HAHAHAHAHa

She belonged to the church across the street from her home, but none of the church members showed up to help (I'm not sure if she was a habitual needer of help or not). But she is staying with the lady who worked in the soup kitchen where she got got her lunch/dinner three days a week. Her pets are in different homes until we can find her a place. I'm looking at apartments, but her children (who never showed, but her daughter in law showed up to glare at all of us. she told me Rose wasn't allowed in her house, and that she (daughter in law) was now in control or Rose's money because Rose keeps sending it to a group of cons to "save the children." Roses point is that it was her money. She didn't support anyone but herself. All her kids have houses and live in different towns, so they didn't want or need her house.

I contacted an elder group today, and passed on the information I have about Rose. I'll talk to rose again tomorrow and see what we can find for her. While she had a lot of stuff, she had less then I would have thought. but most of it will need to be cleaned before we get her in a place.

Typical Tuesday, lots of miles I think I clocked almost 100 miles. Spin a 7 and a 10. Nice spin day. I'm off to bed.

LINDA, I got some question. Where do you take an 85-year old evicted woman? There must be a county office that takes care of people like that. Were the local police involved?
Where are the "first responders" for situations like that? Does she belong to a church that would help?

Spun a two and a five this Tuesday afternoon.

Oh man my crazy life. I’m so sore I want to cry. Got A phone call from an 85-year-old woman that I had given a ride to three months ago after seeing her hitchhiking. Long story short she was being a victim did and had one day to get her stuff out of there. Long story short she was being evicted and had one day to get her stuff out of there. we worked until 930. I’m trashed.

It went really well. He got some positive comments for have only been taking lessons for two months. Most of all he felt good about it. I was very proud.

The nice thing about first time dings is they will often give you a chance ro correct the problem. Hope they do that for you all. And of course they would come and inspect while you all were at the big meeting. LOL

Spun a 5 and 3. After yesterday's big spin I really can't complain, ok I can, but who'd let me. HaHaHaHa.

I love working with Miss Nonie. I get so worried about her when I'm not there. I made her some cheaters gazpatcho.(V-8, chunky salsa to make a cup. (blend hers smooth), add lots of onion, and garlic, and sweet basil. I like a little Rosemarry and oregano. mix and let sit in the fridge for a bit. (Oh salt and a little sugar). Garnish with a little cream. My boss was like "yuck did you taste it?" Yep I love it in the summer. and Nonie ate a cup of it in less than an hour. That is after eating a "Milkshake" (one cup, strawberry ice-cream, a little bit of co-co, peanut butter, cherry yogurt, cottage cheese, and milk to make a cup. I kept asking miss Nonie to hate it so I could eat it, she ate it up in less than an hour. It takes the other girls hours to get her to eat one cup of anything. Today she drank 4 cups of juice, and ate 2.5 cups of food. That's more than what she consumes on two days when I'm not there. I show them, and show them. The key is, if you won't eat it/drink it why would she?Baby food is the right consistency, but it is not the right flavor. Its just bland. and she likes it a little more spicy. Oh well, we do what we can, right.

Have an awesome day!!

Well, we departed Hyannis, Mass Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m.

Spun a seven and a five this Sunday afternoon. That was exciting. We stopped at our Elks Lodge and found out that the Newburyport Health Department had been by to inspect our kitchen. And we got some deserved violations. Our ovens need a bit of attention and sinks. I guess we did not have a paper towel dispenser positioned where it should be and a few more thinkgs.

How did the piano performance of Noah go?

Spun a three and a five this Thursday morning, 7 June 2018. Also- also won 500 (five hundred Spark-Goodie points) now what do you do with 500 SparkGoodie points? I bought me a treadmill. Do you think will ever walk on it or run on it? Probably not. It is just cyber gift that just floats out there in space. Life is good.

Thursdays child has far to go..... and tomorrow I do. Going to take a friend to the airport, have to leave my house at 6:30 am. I hate those early mornings. His girlfriend is staying with the kids. It's all good. He's a bit of a lazy such and such, was supposed to work for me and get my fences done. He never did. Oh well. I'll find someone else for sure.

Spun a seven and a 10 this fabulous Wednesday. Went to the VA, they don't know what is causing my new trouble, but its not shingles. (that's what I thought it was, and I can't go around my little old lady if I have them, so life is good. (I have places that burn like a mild sunburn. the place of the burn moves around all the time. Shock makes the burn move faster.

Off to bed I go, got to sleep before I go. hahahahahaha

Now I've got to get ready to do it at the new house. The kids are so excited. Hoping to be there by the end of next week.

We will still be coming to the farm every day, but they will have more room, and I'll have a room (kind of) of my own. To get to the play room one must go through my room, which is why it's my room. Crowd control. Ha ha ha. (I quack me up.)

Hey you were lower then me. I spun two and seven. woot woot, winner winner chicken dinner.

Have an awesome day. I'm going with Sudaa on a field trip. I'll have a blast.

How low can we go - well I spun a pair of threes this magnificent rainy Monday morning,
4 June 2018 - that is how low we can go - a pair of threes - did I tell you that this is stupid?

Breakfast at the Elks was good. I guess we had over fifty people show up for the breakfast..
We got our tomatoes, peppers and bush beans in. But first we got two bales of salt marsh hay. We put some old newspaper down and put salt marsh hay down. No weeds in our garden and this really does a great job in controlling the weeds. It also retains the moisture in dry spells..

Good for you for going out and meeting all the neighbors and hoping they do not shoot you for trespassing.

I can't whistle, but Danny has said he will teach me.

I spun a 7 and 3 today. Sundays I work with Miss Nonie. A wonderful 95 year old woman. I didn't meet her until well after her hay days, but I still find great joy in working with her. We have long silly conversations. I don't understand a thing she says, but we still have a grand time.

When I first moved here, I went to meet all the neighbors. She threatened to call the police on me for being on her property. He husband has shot a neighborhood cat (she would go spend a few days at many of the houses along the road. ) . So I sent them flowers, (I don't remember why, but my animals had to have been involved. I found the vase and the flowers smashed agains my gate. Haven't tried to play kissy face. I refuse to let her or her husband mess with my blessing county.

Well that was a great long post and I still do not know if you can whistle. You know this "grumpy" neighbor could become your best neighbor if you can get to know each other. And then maybe not. Some people just like being ornery to everyone.

Here comes the stupid stuff - Spun a two and a five - sometimes I wonder why I continue to toggle and spin the dial. Oh well - it does bring me to Adna, Washington.

Today is Sunday and we have our Elks buffet breakfast and I got to wrap up my SparkPeople adventure and go get my breakfast. My wife got up at 6:00 a.m. to help prepare this breakfast.

Thank you! Your kind words brought tear to my eyes. I really needed kind words. My nasty neighbor said some nasty things about me in the community page. And of course many of my "friends" had to make sure I "saw" the post. Oh well, I'm just over tired. Spent the day with Noah and four of his friends at the paintball field. So too much sun, not enough Quite time, (who knew that 14-16 year old boys yammer like magpies, and sound like there are 20 0f them in my little mini van. LOL. II took pictures, I did not paint ball, first person who pointed a gun at me..... OOOOO we just don't want to go there. The we got home to find that a friends dog had been poisoned, (they don't know who) so we buried it on our farm. So I get in and find I'm the center of my neighbors hit parade. She's just jealous that I have friends, and that I have all this yummy food, and a wonderful everything. (except for my house, the floors are done. We have a little more paint and the base boards and the crown molding and the ....... and then we are done. hahahahaha. Life is great, so what if I have dirty dishes in the sink and laundry to do. At least I have hands to wash 'em and a machine to do the heavy cleaning.

I spun a three. I'm just to tired to log or anything else. And I spent the day with teenage boys, I so don't want to know how many calories I ate. (This is interesting. Of the 5 boys only two were living with bio parents. One with a grandparent. The other boy told Noah how lucky he was to find someone who could take all his siblings, and the boy with his grandparent said the same thing. You know, that's whats really has me sad. My neighbor has been a grump since we moved in and will continue to be a grump. I can't save the world but I can make some boys happy for a day. LIFE IS GREAT!!!

Yes, count your blessings each and every day and if it makes you wake up in a better mood count it as a multiplier. You are the best. LINDA, can you whistle? If you can, whistle, "You are my Sunshine".

Spun a five and a twenty-five this spectacular Saturday morning, 2 June 2018.

Yeah, put on sarcastic voice with a hick twang, we are one of those. Only thing it's done for us is to increase crime and taxes.

I feel like I got nothing done today, but on reflection I kicked butt. Life is great. (Did I tell you that every night ive been counting my blessings. It's working well. I wake up in a better mood.

Spun a 2 and 3 tonight. Past my bed time. Have an awesome day.

Healthy, Healthy, Healthy!

Dance your butt off, literally!

All is well on the east coast in beautiful Newburyport - a Coast Guard City - upon the mighty Merrimack River. Our Commonwealth/State legislature is preparing to vote our State as a Sanctuary State. Stupid. Supposed to be law abiding people.

Spun a pair of threes this fabulous Friday morning 1 June 2018.

What a great idea!!! I like it, get it done Sergeant!!! The boys would love it. Sudaa might, she is my girly girl in pink camo. One time the boys team (soccer) with the same uniforms and one year up was short a boy, and it was the last game of the season. So they put Sudda in. The other coach was like are you sure about putting her in, my boys can be brutes. Our coach (who coached both teams) smiled and looked at me. I said, "Put her in coach, she's ready to play." The other coach laughed. And made the mistake of sic ing his boys on my girl. She made them cry. She was faster, and she was willing to go toe to toe with them. She would growl at them. The other coach was yelling at his boys she's just a girl, and her brother hollered, "So is a tiger.) The other teams parents got mad, I had to bring her birth certificate in to the office to prove her age, they won, but not by much (they could sub boys in, we couldn't. Although Delilah was willing but they won't let you play up two years.) Delilah is my flower. She wouldn't like it much. but I'll call her unicorn and it'll be alright.

Spun a 5 and 7 today. Woot Woot. Stopped by the Military Museum today. (No way was I going to fight the traffic to go to Fort Lewis/McCord. ). Paid our respects. Proud of my kids they know what Memorial Day is. And they are quick to tell any and everyone. Got to love my kiddos.

Memorial Day Monday - we must take time to honor those who have died protecting our county.

Spun a five and a three this Memorial Day Monday, 28 May 2018.

Rosemary - I have spent time crushing it in a mortar and pestle - that works but it takes time. Do you have a mortar and pestle? I guess I could try using my coffee bean grinder. That would make it a powder..

You will have to make one of the kids the "sergeant" in charge and responsible for clean dishes.. Get-er-done, Sergeant.

I love rosemarry. My kids think I like it too much. They will ask that we don't put "tree things" in the food. Lol. Going to play around with making rosemarry oil. So I can have the flavor without the twigs. Lol.

Worked all day. (I know your are shocked). Yelled at the kids a bit when I got home. All I wanted to do was put my feet up but they had every flat serfice covered in dirty dishes. How can 5 kids oh wait because they are kids. Just got to reestablish the rules. (Still working on the new house so some rules like pick up after yourself have slipped away.

Life is great. Spun 2 and 3 today. Woo hoo counting my blessings.

Here we are happy as can be on this Memorial Day Sunday, 27 May 2018 spun a five and a three - wonderful isn't it.

Got my garden rototilled yesterday and we bought some tomatoes and peppers and rosemary. Love that rosemary. Makes some foods just wonderful - love the smell of it. As well as other herbs.

And another spring is in full force.

I hear you, at times the only reason I spin is so I can have a reason to chat with you!!!

I spun double threes. I love my threes.

I can't remember if you told me, does heat make it better or worse? What about massage? Chiropractic ? Those are all that will help mine when it is really bad. I'm finding acupuncture helps a little too. as soon as I get any relief I have to stretch stretch stretch to keep it from coming back.

Have a great Sunday, I'm going to be working with Miss Nonie tomorrow. I love that lady for sure.

Tiny spins! Yes, quite small spins. Disappointing small spins. But you know - who cares - it is just a spin. Why do we even do this stuff. But here we are doing it each day and I have done it now for almost 3000 times consecutively. And I at times think this is stupid but I still do it. And then along came LIND and we started this small/little chat along the way. I have following you from Alaska to Washington and back and then your returned. So much has gone on over the last eight years. And here we are.

Oh, well I spun a five and a three this spectacular Saturday morning 26 May 2018.

I am not going through some fun times they started PT and I was not responding to PT so they ordered an MRI and then an EMG test. My sciatica is screaming at me and numbing my right leg and foot. Otherwise I am healthy but my right hip and leg are getting too much attention.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

it is indeed all hog wash.

I spent the day working in a k-8 school. What a great bunch of kids. Called them on some silly things and the principal thought I was great. She's going to help me with getting my license. I enjoyed it so much.

Spent some time yesterday counting my blessings. Thank you for being one of my blessings. You have no idea how much these little "chats" make my day.

got a two and a three. Getting a bit fed up with spins tinier then my house.

Oh my gosh. I busted up laughing at hog washed and scared a sleeping dog who started barking and almost woke Danny. My lightest sleeper. Hahahaha.

Spun a two and five today.

Agreed to sub for a lady tomorrow and just got her schedule. Oh man she works zero period. I have to be at work at 715!!! Kids don't get on bus until 715. Good thing it's nice out. They can go stand at the bus stop (end of the driveway) early.

Have an awesome day.

Sorry, LINDA, but I laughed at your comment about the pig pooping and peeing on you at the end of the trip. All I could think of was "HOG WASH"! She got a hog wash! Sorry.

Piggys were washed as you suggested, so the trip there wasn't as bad as they could have been, then when transferring them one pooped and peed on me. Talk about a fragrant trip back. (I did go buy clean clothes dos it wasn't horrible like it should have been, but it sure wasn't fun. LOL

Spun two threes today. Life is great.

Spun a seven and a five this wholesome Wednesday morning, 23 May 2018.

Yesterday I was in the "tank" a Shiels MRI "tank". Maybe this will help give some direction to what needs to be done on my sciatica nerve.

You will just have to hose those pigs down before they get into the van. They may even like that.

exercisesforsciatica
these help me with my sciatica pain except for number three. that one makes me feel like a beached whale. Also my chiropractor and massage.


spun a 7 and a 5. Solid spins I'm happy.

Soccer today, the last game. the season. I am such a soccer mom. I 'm more sad-about it then the kids. So much of who I see myself as is wrapped up in the soccer mom person.

no rain to day, just a little bit of clouds, who can ask for anything more. Life is beautiful.

Here we are at almost 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning. I have spun a two and three this spectacular Saturday morning. Wonderful!

I cannot do any push-ups. Sit-ups - maybe that would be a good exercise for sciatica. I am doomed.

Oh heavens I don't think I could do 3 pushups or sit ups. Used to be I'd do 80 sit ups and then stand up. Why do more than the max? Then do the same for pushups. (But I think that max was 40 for females). The run, oh the run, I'd get close to the max on it too. LOL

Spun a three today. Didn't find time to do anything else. Delilah had a bad dream last night and crawled in bed with me (she's 8). she heard the alarm before me and turned it off??? So we woke up to the bus leaving. So all 4 kids were late to school. I was late to all of my many appointments.

And now it's 12:41 am and this is like a bad habit revisited. I'm off to bed. Hope your Saturday is fun with at least one amazing thing. (something I started a month or so ago, I try to give one complement to each kid everyday and one to someone I know and two to complete strangers. I'm finding that I'm giving more and more each day. watching people walk away with a big smile is really rewarding.

Here we are on Friday again.

Spun a ten and a seven this "fun" Friday morning, 18 May 2018.

So you can do a competitive number of push-ups and sit-ups. Good for you and congratulations. But you have to put a bit of kick into your run time. It is all about the mental push..
