Good Morning everyone  :)

Boy I slept good last night. Weather here is blah. Had rain and sleet yesterday. Today a bit of a warm up then tomorrow colder with more sleet and light snow. I hope it's light snow. I'm ready for sunshine and Spring/Summer.  ;D

Wishing you each a pleasant day.
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on January 03, 2021, 09:15:39 AM
Good Morning all  :)

Actually had some sunshine a bit yesterday and a warm up. Was really nice. Hubby and I got a few things done outside including a new windsock we have on a super high pole. Years ago hubby got a really long/high used military jeep antenna he attached to a tall pole and no snapping off of a pole since then with high winds. The old windsock was really tattered and looked exhausted! lol

Sleet and rain still predicted for today so took trash cans to curb last evening for tomorrow's trash day. No need to go out in yucky weather today. Thumbs up.

Well the plan is to just stay inside to stay warm and cozy in. I hope everyone does the same and has a pleasant day. Take care.

Good Morning 

would love to see deer around here.   Pretty photos Paulie.  Still no word on if we are working tomorrow and how they are going to handle the social distancing if we do go into work . THis is getting aggrevating  not knowing how to plan your day/s . It's also sleeting snowing and raining here

WOW Paulie....what a gift to see those bucks.  We get to see does with their babies once in awhile out back.  I only saw a buck once here.  That picture would make a great Christmas Card for next year :)

LB....Pain in the arse not knowing if you need to go into work or not and what the covid procedures will be.  Very "loosey goosey" to say the least, on the part of management.

We're supposed to be getting some snow/rain any time now.  Pretty yucky out right now.

Well, stay well everyone and have a good week.

Hi LB, Thanks. I'm wondering if by now you've heard anything about work yet. Geesh! I am concerned about if everyone reports to work and the social distancing etc. I'm very sure this is aggravating not knowing how to plan.

Your second quote reminded me of one I saw about a year ago. It's similar but oh boy direct and to the point. Lol I'll try to find it.

Please let us know in the morning what you heard about work or not heard. Fingers crossed.

Hi jicaji, I agree wow! We've seen them here before separately or two together but when all four showed up together on New Year's Eve is when I thought Guys Night Out. lol I agree does and their fawns are nice to see. The little ones bleat like baby goats. So cute.

I like your comments to LB about her work. Well said! lol And sadly true.

The crappy weather here finally moved on. Hopefully yours does soon too. I think the days are supposed to begin getting longer bit by bit. I'm ready!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, CHEERIOS!  :)

paulie, your backyard photos are great!  The "gang" was all there.   ;) :D

LBL, hang in there!  And if you go into your office, wear 2 masks if you feel like it will be better for your protection!  Make sure at least one of them is the 3-layer surgical/procedure type mask since it has a higher effective rate than a cloth mask.  Some people are wearing a cloth mask over a surgical/procedure mask just for looks.  It sounds like you will do what you can to protect yourself and stay healthy and clear of covid.  Check the updated covid-related mandates from your state/county/town to see what applies to your workplace, and encourage compliance.  But no matter what, protect yourself with a good mask, distancing wherever possible, and washing your hands often and using hand sanitizer liberally after touching shared surfaces.  Fingers crossed your workplace will decide to be compliant.  Good news on your test results!! Yay! and your father and his girlfriend doing well.  :)

Waving to All the Cheerios!   :D

I hope everyone in the path of the stormy winter precipitation stays safe and warm.  :)
Hi baz! Good to see you. Happy New Year to you too!! Thanks about the photos and gang. I hope you can get a new computer this year. Definitely will make life more pleasant for you. How is your family and precious niece? I hope all is healthy and good.

Long day and my eyes are tired and shoulders stiff. I've been going through paperwork and piles of things I let accumulate to look through "later" haha. Well I decided today was the day to file away and get rid of. Feels good to have that done and I'm also ready for Zzzzz.  :)

LB I just said of prayer for you about work and yourself.

Take care each of you and stay cozy and safe.

Night. SED

Hey LB, There you are.  :) I looked in this afternoon and saw you hadn't posted yet so figured you were at work. I'm glad you'll have split shifts and go in every other day. Geesh today does sound like a bit of a waisted day but at least each were able to log on or try to and able to see how the system is running. At least you and management know that now. Interesting there were no managers there today though. Oh my gosh you all were told to brainstorm to come up with work solutions. Good you were able to leave at 1 because it sure sounded boring! Thanks for letting me know. Your work updates going forward will definitely be interesting to read!!

Oops I forgot to read your quotes. Doing that now .....
#1 is interesting.

Same here when I came here today but yep realized Amy does this every year about now.

Hi LB, You're back in the office today. Let us know how today goes. I hope there's more planning and organization and everyone can log on and systems not slow.

Hi jicaji, How are you, hubby and Rizzo?

Hi baz, I agree is Spring here .. Not! But did you really hear and see a Robin? Maybe since you're more south. Robin's are relaxing.
Same weather here as yours. Blah ..............

Post by: jicaji on January 06, 2021, 08:25:26 PM
Hi Paulie

 
My "kitties" are 14 and 15 years old!  They are both rescues.  One was found in a feral community in the back of the hospital where I worked...The staff used to take turns feeding them.  He was about 2 lbs.  He actually rode under my friend's car all the way to her house, which is about 10 miles.  She heard him crying when she got out of her car and there he was!!!!  My Willie was part of a feral family in my daughter's backyard.  Mom cat had about 4 kittens, which my daughter found homes for, including the mom.  Willie was also about 2 lbs.....he is now 22 lbs!!!!  And, he's not overweight...the vet says he's just a big kitty!!!  He's the gentle giant.  He doesn't know his own strength, fortunately for all of us :)

Post by: paulie on January 07, 2021, 08:22:56 AM
Hi jicaji, Oh!! kitties are 14 and 15 years old! I must say considering their beginning weight of 2 lbs. you have most definitely loved and cared for Jack and Willie very well! Thanks for the interesting story how you got them too.  :)

Hi.....I saw an Easter Blue Bird at my feeder this morning.  Looked it up in my bird book and it said it is uncommon around here.  A gift from Nature.

Love watching my birds.  Helps me keep my mind off all the "stuff" (for lack of a better word) going on in this country.

Hi jicaji, That's awesome! Eastern Bluebirds right? They are a beautiful bird, especially the males that are a more brilliant blue. Like Cardinal males. Geesh the guy birds always have the prettier colors, right? Lol

I hope he or she stay around for you! What type of seed do you have in your feeder? Mealworms will definitely keep them interested.
Berry suet too.

I've had Bluebirds coming to my feeders for a few years now. Like yours they just showed up one winter. I now hang two enclosed BB feeders with mealworms in them on my deck railing. Strange thing is my BB's leave in the late spring then return late fall early winter. I thought it would be the opposite but they've done this for about four years now.

I did put up a BB house once and a male BB was interested and began a nest but the Sparrows kept chasing him away so he stopped his attempts. I did some reading and Sparrows will enter a BB nest and kill them (was a nasty description) and BB babies too so I took the box down. Bummer. Darned Sparrows!!

I hear you about the "stuff"!! Agreed. Very sad and upsetting.

Enjoy your Bluebird.  :)

I just remembered I forgot to mention earlier hubby got his first vaccine shot yesterday morning. VA contacted him about two weeks ago. He received the vaccine by Mederna. He had to wait 15 minutes before leaving to ensure no reaction then he left. His second one is scheduled for February. I wish they were giving to spouses too but he got his due to underlying health conditions of congestive heart failure and diabetes. The  local VA here is on the ball!

Hi!!! Thank you old guy on lists. Awesome on the BB jacaji.  Not a badday at work. Slowly getting up at work.  Computer is up and down.  We still have no plan on how to handle all the back log.  JUst tarted taking care of the orders for the customers who cried  the loudest. SO far we are going to stay on a split shift.  every other day for now.  I also received an email from HR that we are in the !B group for getting vaccines so we are next on the lisy after 1A.   I am still on the fence in getting it but I got the link to register for vaccine so I will so I am on list

paulie, we are so glad our elders have been given the 1 st dose of the vaccine too.

Both already have had covid-19 and survived it.

Absolutely no ill side affects for either 80 + years olds happy to report.

Pips dad said the Yearly Flu shot was more of a bitch.

Sign us up please. Plenty of doses available. Our younger arms want one here in NJ too.

Skip those and F__ those that don't want it.

Hi LB, Good to hear work will stay split shift for now and is coming along even is slow. It's better than nothing, right? Interesting about the order of taking care of customers. Why not I guess if others are content in waiting. Good idea you're getting on the vaccine list while you decide what you want to do.

Hi jicaji, After reading your comment about #3 I thought about/wondered if you're a worrier.  ;) I know we both are.  :)

Has your Bluebird stayed around? Hope so. Enjoy the beauty and relaxation.

Hi BrokenLug, Hey are you calling me an elder too? Lol Only kidding. I knew what you meant.

Wow! Oh my gosh both 80+ and both had Covid. Very very good news both survived it AND have received the vaccine too with no side effects. A thumbs up for them both.

I literally did lol at Pip's dad's comment. He sounds like a tough great guy. Good for him!

Thanks for the link tracker. Very interesting.

Good to hear you and Pip intend to receive the vaccine. Here's hoping you don't have to wait too long.

Busy day for me and hubby today and my area in PA actually had a full day of sunshine! Was great too and much needed. It's great how sunshine can lift one's mood and kick start the day.

I watched the Bill's football game today. Holy what a good and exciting game! One of my son's has been a Bill's fan since he was growing up. Last time Bill's won big he was 11 years old in 1995. Needless to say he was very happy.  ;D

Good Morning  :)

Hi LB, You're back in the office today. Let us know how today goes. I hope there's more planning and organization and everyone can log on and systems not slow.

Hi jicaji, How are you, hubby and Rizzo?

Hi baz, I agree is Spring here .. Not! But did you really hear and see a Robin? Maybe since you're more south. Robin's are relaxing.
Same weather here as yours. Blah ..............

On that note lets all look forward to sunshine .. it'll get here!
Make it a pleasant day.

Paulie,yes, i really saw and heard a robin out my window! Lol. There were 2 of them in the same tree! I had heard it the day before but wasn?t able to confirm till i eyeballed him. Haven?t seen or heard them the last couple days.
Hi baz, Good to see you. Cool to you really seeing robins. Two! Sweet. Hopefully they're singing about an early Spring!  ;)

I have an issue and I wonder if anyone can help.

I deleted a file folder from my AOL just last week. As Murphy's Law would have it I now need it!! Darn!! It was old but had receipts in it and I need the last paid receipt now from. It was an old file and I even paused before deleting it but figured nah I don't need it any more.

Help!! if anyone knows of a way to retrieve it.
Thanks in advance if anyone does. Fingers crossed.

Hi jicaji, Thank you and yep yesterday I did google what you suggested too. I found some links to get possible answer but had to pay for it. Umm "possible" answer and put my card info into a site I'm not familiar with? Nope not happening. Frustrating.

I agree hate when this happens about deleting something. It's easy to retrieve if it's in the 'deleted emails' slot but this was a separate email I had created a file folder for emailed receipts so I'm guessing since it was a deleted file folder is why it didn't go into deleted emails. Sounds confusing I know but darned I'm determined. LOL

Followed the sun for about an hour today. Saw... sun dogs, turkey vultures, a red tail hawk by the side of the road, several BE flying just above and a dozen fishing in the Mississippi.
Then we found a Mexican restaurant. We were the only ones in between the lunch and dinner crowd and this was their first day open to indoor serving since a 2 month lockdown.

paulie,  sorry about you needing a receipt from that deleted file.  Yikes.  I don't know how AOL email works, but with my email provider, I can use and see my emails on their web email, or just download them to my computer to view via email.  I can go to my email provider on the web email site and download my emails from "way back when."  I'm talking years!  If AOL email works in a similar manner, you should be able to retrieve the original, or copy of, email that has the receipt you are looking for.  You might be able to log into your AOL email account, or your AOL account on their website, and either chat, or contact them thru whatever support means they have there, and ask how to retrieve one of your old emails from their email server that you had accidentally deleted from your computer.  You were smart not to provide any personal or financial info to whatever site asked for it.  Fraudster alert on that, for sure! If AOL has the same web email server functionality that my email provider does (mine is Earthlink), then I think you have a good chance of retrieving that email.  You should work through AOL's online support site at your AOL account, which should let you sign into your AOL account and find a support link there.  See if they have an online chat support funciton there, and it might be faster to get an answer.  It might help if you know around when that email originated.  Good luck!

paulie, I thought you said you had moved an email with the receipt to a file folder that you deleted.  If you did, then why not retrieve the email from AOL that had that receipt, even if you can't retrieve the entire deleted file?  Maybe I misunderstood what you had said.  Also,  if the deleted file was on your computer, not their website, then maybe you can restore it from a backup you may have done on your computer?  I don't know about that... just wondering "out loud."  Anyway, I feel your pain, and wish you luck.
Hi baz, Thank you very much for your explanation on trying to help me retrieve file folder. I'm chuckling to myself about how I tried to explain my predicament. It wasn't the most clear explanation. Lol But you got it in your second reply to me!! Yes it was an email I had added to a file folder I had created a long time ago for receipts from a particular place and I'd just add receipts to the file through the years.

Long story short I still did not retrieve it but I came up with a way to 'investigate' it and to prove I had paid it .. and I did!  :) I'll explain to what I did in a post below.  ;)

Hi Tig, Nice!! Sounds like you had a really pleasant drive today and saw lots of nature .. especially BE's. Very cool.

Your Mexican restaurant find sounds relaxing and delicious in addition to pleasant and safe in between dinner crowds. I'm sure the staff were happy to see you and Camper after a 2 month lockdown.

Awesome day and now you've made me hungry. Lol  You relax and sleep good tonight.

Okay .. now the conclusion to my missing deleted file folder with email receipts. This was bugging the daylights out of me!! because I knew I had paid a particular bill. Soooooo I brainstormed and came up with this ....

I called the office saying I wanted to pay my bill but I needed to know the account #. That was the clincher .. I wanted to pay my bill. I was asked my name. This was a medical bill. I was given the account #. That's it. No other proof of identity. Hmmm so much for privacy. I was also asked if I'd like the phone # for billing dept. Sure I'd like that. Thank you.

I went to the bill-pay online website .. entered the account # .. result? Zero balance. Bill paid.  ;)

I then called the billing dept .. gave my account # asking if I had a balance. Reply .. zero. Exactly!!
So I explained the circumstances to the phone rep asking if she'd call the other office to tell them I have a zero balance. She gave me her name saying I should call office to tell them. Ok. Will do. Along with confirmation #!! Thank you.

I called office explaining what I was told yesterday .. that I had a balance due .. this lady pulled up account and said I have zero balance. Exactly!! No surprise to me!! She said she wasn't the one who initially told me I still owed and she apologized for the other person's mistake and added that I'm a very persistent person. Darn right I am! I knew I paid it. I thanked her saying have a nice day.  :) ;) :P Done! ;D

Appt. of was OK.  Xrays the same, but shows I am definitely going to need a knee replacement should I go that way.  Otherwise he told me I'll probably need to use a cane. 

He told me no more cortisone shots, as they really aren't doing much good now and I can tell that from when we started this years ago.  The shots lasted a couple of months, but not so much now.  He did drain fluid from the knee which helps a bit.  He suggested a Pain Management Dr.   Not sure I want to do that.  Supposedly they can prescribe a variety of pain meds.

I did buy CBD cream, which I got at the Ortho's office, which really seems to help, especially my back as well, which is out of whack because I'm walking all out of kilter.  We'll see how long that helps.

Ah well....Dermatologist next Tuesday to look at 2 suspicious looking moles.  It's always something.

sorry about the knees.   I am taking a gel shot for my knees. It didnt seem to work this time around.  not sure if its due to all the exercise I am doing because everyone  told me it will get better with weight loss.  It did but I thought it would be a little better than it is.  good luck with the moles.

Post by: jicaji on January 15, 2021, 08:38:40 AM
LB....Yeah, I wanted the gel shots, but he said they wouldn't help me.  Seems to me in you're on bone on bone in your knee, a cushioning injected would help...but what do I know..  I was annoyed, but that was two years ago.

My friend had them and was good to go for 6 months!!

Good luck with work "stuff."

Hi jicaji, Thank you for your update. Sorry about your news. Not an easy decision for you about knee replacement.
Understood about seeing a pain management doctor. Good the CBD cream is helping you.
Your back pain makes sense. What about a chiropractor for some relieve?

Darn it to those moles. Yes always something it seems. It's very good you're having them checked. Some people don't. If this helps ... Last April at beginning of pandemic I decided I had to have one checked on my face. Numbing and biopsy were easy then results were benign. Prayers that yours will be the same.

Hi LB, TGIF for you! Years ago when I had gained weight I was told the same thing about loosing it and it would help knees feel better. So I lost it and still haven't gained it back but the result didn't help my knees one bit. I think when degeneration has set in and continues it's going to do what it's going to do. Your weight loss is excellent and benefits you in many other ways too. That's a win.

Wow you are definitely going to be busy with work! Good that you'll be going back to working from home .. but don't you have to go into the office at times to print or have someone else print labels (or something like that)? I hope you'll be getting paid for all the overtime.

A question for Cheers and anyone else in RRP threads that might read this.

Has anyone heard from or kept in touch with julie from Cheers?

She and I kept in touch through both emails and pm's here and she was really looking forward to last Decorah BE season.
My last contact with her was last May.  All was good with her during out last communications.

I know her town location in Texas and she told me which town she shops in. I thought we'd exchanged phone #s but if so I can't find it.

Last summer is when I asked Glo (Glogdog) to help me get info on both Mom Never and Julie. That's when Glo contacted never's daughter but Glo didn't have any contact info for Julie. I now know why never hadn't replied to my email. God bless Never.

I've still received no email reply from Julie, therefore, I've been concerned about her for a while.
That's why I'm asking anyone now if maybe they've heard from her.

I hope all is okay and good with Julie and her family.
Any replies are appreciated. It's okay to pass this info and question onto other threads.

Modified I thought I'd add that I did reach out to Amy this past summer but didn't hear back so assuming there may be protocol to not reach out if a member decides to leave the Forum and respect their privacy. I understand that if so .. so I hope I'm not overstepping by asking others.

Take care all.

Did you get to visit with you father when you took him your delicious applesauce? How's he feeling? Better and virus behind him now I hope.

Hi baz, Waving back to you.

LB, Have a good day at work. Sounds like a busy one.

One of my daughters (one with Lupus) got her first inoculation yesterday. She got a strong headache a few hours later. Still has it today but seems a bit better she said.

She had an ordeal getting it. She went to hospital she works for to get shot .. her entry badge had been disabled in error for entry .. once she got inside the tech had difficulty getting vaccine into syringe .. called Dr who said since vaccine is thick it's sometimes difficult to get into thin syringe so got a different syringe.. just when ready to give vaccine the fire alarm went off .. Yep! My daughter said she looked at tech and said "we're finishing this shot before we leave so do it now!" Lol  She got her shot! Lol

Have a good day everyone.  :)

what an ordeal your daughter went through to get the vaccine but thank goodness she got it!!!!  Good news Jacaji!!!  I iddnt have to work too late today but I am sure it will be coming.  Management here as no plan so we are swinging it!!! I am digesing now so I can do at least one of my exercises tonight. I usually do 2  I am getting tired quickly though
Hi LB, Thank you about she got it. And agreed great news for jicaji.  :)

Good that you didn't have to work too late today. I guess at this point all you can do is go with the flow at work. Good you're going to do one exercise tonight. Don't over-do. Do you think you're getting tired more quickly due to returning to work plus exercises? I mean maybe having to get back into the routine you used to have. Hope that makes sense.

Well the saga continues for my daughter who got the vaccine.  She was notified this evening from the school where her daughter (my youngest cutie 6 yr old granddaughter) attends 3 hours of kindergarten (pandemic schedule) in the mornings is closed for the rest of the week due to two teachers testing positive. So now virtual online classes again. School just resumed minimal hours in-school classes last week since last November when numbers went high then closed for the long holiday. 

This pandemic has been and is ...........
I just can't find the words any more.

Hi LB, Was checking in to see if you posted. Awesome you've got your remote access and can work from home!! Sounds like a busy work weekend but worth it if lots of work gets done so you can begin working alternating weeks again. Fingers crossed you can!  :)

Hoping for a good news check up for cutie Copper tomorrow.  :)

Hi LB, Darn to not sleeping good. You've got a lot on your mind. Brrrrrr walking in freezing cold but you did it! (I need a thumbs up emoji)  :)

Once you get back into your routine schedule again you're going to loose those few pounds. I have no doubt.

Agree to what jicaji said about one or two at the office. Soooo true .. and annoying!

Hi jicaji! That great news for your husband! Busy day here with errands so I just now saw your message. I understand your being nervous but yes a good thing. I was nervous too for my husband but he didn't feel any side effects. Cool.

Darn to snow in your area tomorrow. Hopefully not much accumulated when driving for his shot.

Snow predicted here tomorrow too then sleet on top. Ugh. That makes snow removal harder. Id' rather mow the lawn. LOL

Please let me know how your husband is feeling afterwards tomorrow.

Hi LB, Good to hear from you. Another long day for you! Your boss does sound unorganized and without a clue.

I'm sorry to hear about Copper. Did vet give any reason(s) for it or for the increase? And what options are there for him if murmur is verified?

Your getting tested tomorrow and to then test again as you mentioned sounds good and will give you peace of mind. You're being pro-active so good for you!

I hope you can relax and get some good rest tonight. Hugs to you and cutie Copper.

Paulie...All went well.  Very systematic.  The shots were given at a closed airport (Pratt and Whitney).  Stayed in the car...shot given by an MD.  His appt. was for 1:40 .....we were all done by 2:07p.....then had to wait 15 minutes before we left to make sure all was OK.  The Nat'l Guard and medical staff was there to help with logistics.  Excellent!!!

The weather not so good.  As we left it started to sleet, then snow on the way.  Passed about 5 car accidents.  Thankfully we were OK and MOST important, by husband feels fine. 

Thank you President Trump!!!!

That's awesome, jicaji. Wow the process sounds very organized with great logistics! I'm really happy it went so well.

Oh geesh! Murphy's Law about the weather when you were leaving. Sounds not good at all. Very glad you got home safely and a big YES to your husband feeling fine. Excellent!

I can tell you're relieved and happy. Good! I'm not sure if I told you but when my husband got his vaccine shot he went to our VA where he receives treatment. It was very organized too. He gets his second vaccine shot in about a week! I agree with your thank you to President Trump.

Hi LB, Good to rescheduling your test since weather wasn't good.

God love you LB you need a hug and life to go smoother for you and Copper. If a hormone deficiency I'd think that can be treated with medication I hope. I just googled Bassett Hounds stomach conditions but not sure what I was looking for. It sounds like you need to clear some time .. and your vet too .. so you can speak together for vet to explain more thoroughly and for you to ask questions. That will help you know what to do. I hope and pray there's a solution with meds or somethings so Copper's health is normal and happy for you both again.

Definitely sounds like another long day for you. One thing good is you're working from home this week with all that's going on.
Your stress and worry can definitely cause difficulty sleeping. Absolutely! Please take a long deep breath. Also you have to eat to keep your strength up and stay healthy even if you're not hungry. Just stay with eating the healthy things you have been and you'll be okay.

LB, you know you can come here to vent any time you need to and have time. You've got friends here. You and Copper are in my thoughts and prayers.  :-*

#1  And remember LB life is a rollar coaster but what I've told my kids and grands and you now too .. when the roller coaster is going down remember there is going to be an 'UP' so keep doing your best and your UP will arrive. I'm sending you a hug LB.

Can you schedule a phone appointment to speak with the vet? I hope today with work goes smoother for you and maybe not so long!

Extra Brrrrr here beginning today. Single digit feels like temps into this weekend too with high winds. ((shiver))  I'm planning to stay inside other than feeding the critters. I do have to keep refilling the heated birdbath everything is using to either splash around haha or drink. Weatherman said this is coldest it's been the past two years. Last winter definitely was not as cold with almost no snow. Oh well. It is what it is. Dealing with it. Spring and Summer will get her.  ;D

I'm not eligible yet.....65+ is next.  Right now we're on 75+.  I miss it by 2 years!!!!

We don't go anywhere either other than the grocery store when we have to, and occasional Dr. visit. 

Be well everyone! cccc cold tomorrow!

Post by: LBLNJ0668 on January 28, 2021, 08:09:29 PM
Good luck tomoorrow Baz.   I got an email from the health dept that  I am eligible now but there witht he shortages I should still wat for the email that I can make my appt  They also said I can try and get an appoinment in one of those mass place that offers it.  I am waiting I am afraid with all the shortages that they wont have any for my 2nd shot  and if that is the case the first shot will be for nothing. I just took my covid test today. I rescheduled it from Tuesday.  Hopefully I will have results sat.  I took it just as a precautiion especially with lots of people at ork last week.

 Thanks for the advice Baz. Just need to do the ultra sound before they see what's wrong. They di ask if he pees a lot and he was normal but now today he seems  be drinking a lot . 

ok it was another 12 hour day tomorroq will be busy too.  but hopefully no working this weekend

baz, Good news! Good for you! And good luck tomorrow. Enjoy your drive and getting out a bit. I hope you have a sunny pleasant day for your drive both ways.

jicaji, Good news that your husband is doing good. He's the first I've heard of getting the Pfizer. My husband and one of my daughter's got Mederna. I think that's the one in my area. I guess it depends which one the different states received maybe?  Geesh you're so close to being eligible for your state's current phase.

LB, Good news you're eligible for the vaccine now. I hope the following will help your worry about getting the second shot. What my state is doing is saving/ensuring there's a second vaccine shot for each person who receives the first one. That's why there's a shortage in PA right now for people getting their first shot. So I think the same for you in NJ so think about it and I hope you get it when you get the call.
Has your father received it yet or scheduled to soon? At his age and health he should be at top of the list. Hope so.
Also good you got your test today. Your being proactive is excellent.

TGIF for you tomorrow since today was another 12 hour day and hoping no work this weekend for you.

Wishing you each a good night and keep cozy and warm!!  :)

Good orning  My state released a mass load out to the everyone so there is shortages.  They did reserve for the 2nd shots at first but decided to get more vacinted.  MY father has to wait until March since he already tested poitive. (90 days) He already has the antibodies and they think people who have it will have a more severe reaction to the shot . so they advice to wait 90 days before getting the shot.  Out for walk not sur ehow long I will last it's brutal outside but Copper did take me for a full wlk yesterday evening.

Hi LB, Interesting about your state's decision to not hold reserve to vaccinate more.
 
Very interesting important information you gave about your father and other's who have had it waiting 90 days and the reasoning. Makes very good sense.

Kudos to you for still walking in this brutal cold and I'm smiling about Copper taking you for a full walk yesterday evening.  :)

Same here with weather snow forecast up to a foot. I'm waiting to see if prediction stays the same here because last time the snow went south. Time will tell.
I hope you're finished working for the day.

Hi baz, Very good news about your injection site and no other symptoms. Yes Yay for you!  :)

Thanks for the Weather Channel info. I used to really enjoy the Weather Channel but Verizon in my area stopped carrying it a couple years ago. Made me very unhappy too. Bummer. I did get a Code Red Warning text alert and email too from the Nat'l Weather Service earlier tonight about the predicted snow storm. Time will tell. I'm ready for Spring/Summer.  ;D

Thanks Baz I missed it of course. yesterday moring we were at 3-6in Now it's at 12-18"!! He wil probably let me work from home but art of my job is releasing orders to production (Printing the formulas and labels, and putting paper work together) That has to be  done in the office.  Technically its a production job bu t somehow we got inherited doing it (before I even worked there)  There may be a slight chance we close or a half day but I wont be  going in regardles if I see any kind of snow on the ground when I wake up  LOL It seems like its going to be a monster but I have seen it mny times before when they it turned out we got nothing.  All I know it's freezing out!!! Cold enough for snow

Hi LB, Cool. Good you have a snow day. Lots of snow for you too.

Hi jicaji, Lots of snow for you too. I sound like a broken record. lol

Snow here too since yesterday and till tomorrow morning. Snowing now 2 to 3 inches an hour they say. I believe it and have been trying to keep up with it. Too much to wait to do until it's done. Possible 18 inches. Ugh.

Deer were pretty last night watching them in the snow. It was easy to see them because so bright in yard due to the snow. More visitors at the feeders as usual during a snow storm. Red Bellied Woodpeckers and a really pretty Northern Flicker at feeder and Downy Woodpecker. Six Bluebirds and Bandit the Cardinal on deck waiting for his peanuts.  Blackeyed Juncos, Chickadees I call little tuxedos  :) pretty House Finches. Haven't seen any Tufted Titmice birds this year for some reason. Oh! And a red fox ran thru the yard last night. Well, that's the action keeping me busy watching. It's better than watching all the darned snow continue!  ::) I'm ready for Spring.  :)

I finally caved and made a cake yesterday I've been hungry for put kept putting off. White with Mmm chocolate icing. I figure I'll burn off the calories clearing snow .. right? lol I hope.  ;D

Hi Paulie, Baz and LB

Yep, lots of snow!!  I managed to help my husband with removal.  While he was plowing (and plowing a path for Rizzo), I was able to shovel the deck a few times yesterday.  The snow is so fluffy I could just push it off the deck with the shovel.

He's out there now plowing, since it's supposed to be freezing rain later, which will make removal extremely difficult if he doesn't do it now.  Thank goodness for my husband and our snow plow!!!!!

Two more weeks and Jim gets his second shot.  I'm a little concerned about it.  I'm hearing the second shot can give pretty bad side effects?? 

Stay safe everyone.

Hi jicaji, Oh my gosh I agree about lots of snow. Same here. Awesome your husband  has a snow plow and awe a path for Rizzo too. Good the snow was fluffy so you could push it off the deck especially with your knee! Same here for being fluffy. Thank heaven for that! Way too much snow.

Now the local weather here is saying a possible additional foot this Sunday. No way! There's already over a foot in my area. Sooooo over this winter.

Sorry to add to your worry about second shot but I've heard the same thing from my daughter who said the CMO at the hospital where she works advised employees of the same thing. My husband gets his second shot this Friday and daughter about a week after that. I'll let you know how it goes with them.

You stay safe too .. cozy and warm inside.

Oh geesh LB, Your shoveling and getting plowed back in sounds VERY frustrating. No wonder why you're sore. So rude to plow in a handicap spot too! Sounds like you and Copper haven't been able to walk too.
Same for my area for Sunday's snow. It's supposed to moving away from the east coast. Good! See ya!!  ;D

Good morning. Paulie, this is a sad message for you (since we've PM'd about it) and everyone here - I just saw in the General Information thread (scroll down to In Memoriam) that Julie passed away 12/29/20. I wonder if she had the chance to see the messages for her here. I'm going back there now to read the obit. :'(
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: nanimal on February 06, 2021, 11:44:13 AM
PLEASE READ! I am so sorry, Cheers!  I am in error about Julie's passing.  Ginger let me know that the obit was for a Julie who was born in 1950 and lived in New York State; I don't believe I knew her.  Apparently Cheers Julie is 79 and lives in TX. My apologies to all of you and to Julie. Still sad to read about the passing of another Decorah Eagles fan. It said in the obit that donations could be made to RRP.

Hi nan! Oh! Wait ... I've read your message twice now to be sure this isn't Cheer's Julie. Yes Julie/Cheers lives in Texas and correct about her age or pretty close.
Thank you, nan, for thinking to bring the initial information you thought was correct here to me and others in Cheers. Yes you and I have PM'd more than once about Julie and Mom Never too. Thanks nan for thinking of me to notify. I'm still worried about Julie though. She loves the Decorah eagles and looking forward to last season. Her emails, PM's and her posting just stopped. I have exhausted every way I can think of to contact her even searching info in her town in Texas. Well ..... I'm still hoping all is okay with her.

Thanks also, nan, for the .net reminder. I'll go there now. I'm going to look at the In Memoriam thread too.

I hope all is still going good for you and family. Take care.  :)

Hi jicaji, I'm here and waving.  :)

Hi LB, Good to hear you're caught up at work. Sounds good that you were able to work from home today. Be careful of slippery sidewalk and parking lot tomorrow.

Hi Tig, Wishing Camper a good recovery.

Whew! A busy two days. Yesterday my husband had surgery to replace ICD. He was told to take one 325mg Tylenol for pain/discomfort.  :o I gave him (2) Extra Strength Tylenols spacing apart hours to give to him and boy it was a long night with his discomfort. I called cardiac surgeon's office this A.M. and was told he can alternate Tylenol and Advil every three hours. After a few doses it has helped. But this morning before Dr returned phone call I had to remove bulky dressing first then the second layer of surgical tape and gauze dressing. I could hardly put my finger tip around his surgical area it was so tender and sore but finally got both layers removed. I swear there was enough surgical tape and gauze to wrap around a vehicle. A lot! The bottom layer of Steri-Strips stay on.

And it snowed last night until noon today then sleet on top. Soooo after getting him settled I attacked the outside. I swear having the two layers of surgical dressings removed gave me energy I was SO relieved that was over! I had a guy with a snow blower do the majority of outside so that went well. It's to snow and sleet a bit more tonight. Like many many others I am sooooo over this winter and snow.

Hoping for a better night tonight and sunshine tomorrow I hope.  ;D

Take care all.

Hi LB, Honestly I think we all pull up extra energy when we need to. And after whatever we had to do is completed we definitely feel the let down.  ;) Thank you about my husband's surgery.
Good to hear your snow wasn't sticking. Let's hope snow is done for this season!
You'll have a long weekend having Monday off. Best wishes for your appointment Monday. I've heard that stress can raise cholesterol. You've definitely had your share of stress lately! I hope you're relaxing tonight.

baz, Hmmm so you do or do not get your second vaccine shot today? Maybe I have my days wrong.
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: Puff on February 26, 2021, 10:28:38 PM
Yay baz  You've joined the in crowd, shot  #2.  E4E  Your post also reminded me that I wanted to contribute as others have done and give a follow-up on how that 2nd shot goes.  Ton and I both agree that during the night last night there was more discomfort than after we just got it.  But the total effect was a lot easier than #1.  I just rubbed my arm and got hardly any sore feeling tonight.  It really was a non issue between yesterday and today.

While waiting out the 15 minute "watch" time, talking to the nurse who gave me mine, I found that the Pfizer routine is two doses of 1.0 mm each (or maybe it was cm).  Ton and I had the Moderna, which is two doses of .5 each.  The reason you feel the injection is that it's not a liquid but a gel, so thicker going in.

One other professional tidbit - There's a small white card given where your info is recorded.  It has CDC symbol so I believe it must be the same for all states.  (Each state has the right to handle things their own way, so this might not be uniform.)  This "Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card" is something you should keep for future travel.  Already in Europe there's talk of a vaccine passbook in addition to passport, or a combination thing, that some countries are instituting.  Us travel advisors anticipate that something will also be set up for US citizens, though nothing specific has started.  I say just hold on to your record card just in case.

I go for my second vaccine shot in two weeks. Oh boy oh boy!

I slept in this morning and was lazy because raining and blah BUT the sun is shining now and warmed up a tad so heading outside to measure gardens to order recycled rubber mulch edging. I've decided no more re-tilling the edges and sometimes having to weed whack. Done with that! Roll out the rubber edging and mow over it is the way to go. Another thumbs up.  ;D

Enjoy your day.  :)

LB, Good you got your walk in earlier. Same here about rain all day. It beats snow and ice, right! I hadn't heard about Firefly. Will check it out. Enjoy your binge watching.  :)

I was behind a car at the stoplight yesterday that had a license plate I wanted to take a picture of so badly, but I didn't have my cell phone with me.  Drat!  Its personalized NC plate was, [email protected].   Love it!!   :)

Have a great day, Cheerios!   :)
I came back to fix that license plate because I left the E off the end!   ??? ::)  ;) :D.  It sounds the word out the same anyway, but the license plate did have the E on it.  :D

Hi LB, I applaud you with your exercise routine. I need to follow your example.
Good I think that you're still alternating work weeks until numbers are better regarding virus.
Awww to Copper. He loves and depends on his mama. Poor guy when you do leave for a while.
Did your winds get nasty? When that wind system passed thru my area it was downright scary at times. Yep cold here too. Lows all this week in 20s and 30s. This morning the feels like temp was 16. Brrrrr

Thanks for spelling it out baz!  I couldn't figure out the meaning of grat twelve de.  ::)

Are you referencing my explanation from my post in the Beak Room?   :) :D  That is an uppercase I before the 2, but, unfortunately, when it was put into bold font on the device I posted that from, it made that uppercase I look like maybe it could be the digit 1. Though it is rare to see the digit 1 appear as a simple vertical line in most fonts. If you click the quote button on my post of that bold license plate number, it shows that it is in fact an uppercase L, though it may not appear to be so at first glance.  Oh la, context is often what makes things like that work, it seems.   :)
Baz your explanation has me totally confused. LOL I need the laughing emoji with laughing tears!
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on March 02, 2021, 07:04:48 PM
Paulie, yay! You got it!  :D

For anyone still trying to see how the license plate, [email protected], translates to the word GRATITUDE, this may help...

The @ sign stands for the word AT.  With the GR in front of the @ sign, you get GRAT.  Then there is an I, which makes it GRATI. Then the 2 makes it say GRATITU.  The DE at the end finishes the word so it says GRATITUDE.  So... [email protected] makes the word GRATITUDE.


Good night, Cheerios. Peace. SED. 
baz, I just read this post. Oh! Ya know what? I ingnored the I. Just skipped right over it and went with the 2!! Oh my gosh. LOL
Oh well I got it.  ;D

Paulie, LOL, glad you got it!  :D  In some ways, I wish I had never posted that license plate that was on the car in front of me at a stoplight last week. I love seeing tags like that and figuring them out. Some are so clever. It always makes me smile, or chuckle, depending on what they work out to say. I guess its like working a puzzle, and puzzles are fun for me. But based on some of the feedback I had in the 2 threads I posted it in, many others didnt much care for it. LOL. Learned my lesson.   ::)

What?! That doesn't make sense to me. I think figuring out license plates is fun too. I did see LB's comment and I agree. Post them here and we'll all have fun.  ;D

Wow! I don't remember the Concentration game show. I've been thinking how didn't I see it. I came up with I had 2 toddlers and 1 one year old back in the early 80s so no time to watch. Lol I'm sure Sesame Street was on the TV all the time then and I was asleep early with the kids. Lol

Today warmed up pretty nice and I was able to go to backyard with just a hoody on. For many years picking up dog poop was a regular routine but today was a new one ... used a long handle shovel to pick up deer poop. Now that's a first! But considering the deer traffic I shouldn't have been surprised but I was! I thought they had dropping like rabbits. Well yeah some of that but ...!! Bucks maybe?

Oh ok to the Concentration version. I would have enjoyed that show. Looks fun.

Hi LB

Hi jicaji, Hoping all's good with you and family.

I must be getting very old....I do remember Concentration....Also, which I bet none of you remember, "You Bet Your Life" with Groucho and my all time favorite American Bandstand.  I remember hurrying home from school so I could watch Justine and Bob!!!!  Whew, had to wrack my brain for that one LOL.

Life was much simpler then ;D

Paulie, All is well.  I have a couple more weeks until I get my second shot!  Happy for your son and daughter.

Hi jicaji, I hope all went well with Rizzo and vet today.

He's OK.  Pain in the neck though to go to the vet these days.  We have to call when we get there, wait in the car until she's ready to see him, wait in the car while he's with her, then wait until they bring him out and then wait until she calls to talk about the visit!  ANYWAY, she gave him an antibiotic to prevent an infection and an ointment to put on the cyst.  He has to wear a "cone" collar to prevent him from licking it for a few days.  We have a soft, blow up collar that works OK.  He does have a heart murmur that she monitors, not dangerous YET.    If the cyst gets bigger or worse (right now it's just a small pea size), she'll have to surgically remove it, but before that happens, she would have to do a heart work up to make sure he can be put under anesthesia.  AS I ALWAYS SAY, IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING!!!!! 

Thanks for asking.  Beautiful day here.

LB, Weird as it sounds, I'm kind of getting used to and liking having nothing planned..other than my tea parties with Violet.  After I get my second shot, I think we'll finally go to see her  to bring her some Easter gifts the Easter bunny I'm sure will leave for her :)  Coincidentally, one of the books he left for her is one of Dr. Seuss books "Oh the Places You'll Go."  Happy we got it before all this stupidity!!

Hi baz, Good you're having the same weather. Yes it was a good busy day. I got a lot accomplished clearing out gardens in front yard and one side of the house. Tomorrow 73 so plan to continue with more garden clean up. Heck it's only March but cleaning gardens early when possible is a big help.

Good Morning  I am off today  Going to doctor for phyical.  Maybe I will get some advice how to get an appoinment for vaccine. No they dont give it.   I heard I need to stay up to midnight or get up at 4am that when they open  up appointments  sigh....There are vaccine hunters who will get one for you but I feel I should keep them free to help the people who really need it.  I just dont understand how they keep opening up the criteris for more people able to get the appointment when the people  who needs it more still cant get appointments.  I hope that makes sense.

Hi LB, I'm just getting caught up on reading posts. How was your physical yesterday? And! Did you get some advice about scheduling for a vaccine appointment? I've heard people in my area are doing the same .. stay up till mid-night and/or try again 4 to 5am.

Yep TGIF for you.

I feel much beeter.  I get my vaccine later this afternoon. Im nervous.  I also got my fathers girl friend a vaccine appointment She got 2!!  SHe needs to cancel one. I had 2 people work on getting her appointment and they both came through LOL  so if you guys know anyone wh ois having trouble have them reach out to vaccine hunters on FB within your state there are groups of people wh vlunteer to get appointments for people.   They know the tricks they know the times the pharmacies open up their appoints which is usually in middle of night.   THere re many wonderful people ut there!!!

Good Morning LB, Awesome that you caught up on sleep and you're feeling much better!! Awesome too you're getting your first shot this afternoon. It's normal to be nervous but you're going to do good.

Wow you got your father's girlfriend scheduled for a shot too and she got 2 appointments! Very nice of you having 2 people work on it. I'm sure she's grateful to you.

I got my second shot yesterday morning. Mederna. Done!

Great advice you've given to others about groups of people volunteering to help others get their shots. There sure are wonderful people out there!

Hi LB, Ugh to snow flurries. Hopefully Mother Nature's last winter burst.

Oh wow!! I had no idea how much attention Copper wants from you when you're working from home!! How do you get any work done?
It does sound frustrating. I understand much better now. I think alternating working from home and in the office would be nice too. It kinda gives you the best of both ... except for Copper wanting all your attention when you're working from home. Is he like that on weekends when you're not "working" and just doing your regular weekend things?

#1   
#2 so true. A true story. I met a guy who grew up really hard and made all the wrong choices growing up and paid big time for his mistakes. After working hard to better himself and create a better life he now has a great life, wife and children. A few years ago he posted on my neighborhood Nextdoor website he hauls away all metal and other heavy items when not working his regular job. I contacted him and met him when I needed help getting rid of a lot of stuff from the barn shed. He didn't hesitate to share his story. And oh my heavens he pitched in and helped me with lots of other things needing removed and even took extra things to a trash heap. He is the first one to step up to help someone and is trustworthy. He's made lots of friends in my and other neighborhoods too. Good for him!! Success.  :)

Good morning everyone.  Beautiful day again.

We had a very beautiful, large Woodpecker on the lawn just sitting there.  He must have flown into something and perhaps was stunned.  My husband went to pick him up and put him in a box we have for such events to give him some protective time out, but he started to jump a little, so we let him be, sitting in the sun and kept an eye on him for awhile.  Eventually, he climbed up an old trellis and flew off just fine. 

So thankful for happy endings!!

Have a great weekend.

Baz, the flowers look lovely.  Good luck with them

Pretty soon I'm going to put my marigold seeds in my planters on the deck.  I use the seeds from year to year.  As the flowers die, I take out the seeds and put them away for the next growing season.  I usually get four planters  beautifully filled each summer.

Hi jicaji, I'm glad your woodpecker story had a happy ending.

Hi baz, Thank you about the storms and winds. My area and property turned out okay but we definitely had our times of stress watching the enormous trees that line the far end of our backyard. Last year a strong wind storm blew one down into yard of neighbor behind my house getting her rear deck and patio door. It was huge. She was okay and the tree not on my property. Whew!

The storm/high winds did take out the electricity at one of my daughter's homes. No power till the next afternoon her area was told and she has a small to medium floor freezer and large refrigerator freezer both full with frozen meats etc. My husband and I got some extra large bags of ice and our two really big coolers and drove them to her house about 30 minutes away.

Paulie:

Happy the wind left you alone and your daughter's electricity came back on.

We were a bit stressed with all the wind, much of it continues as I post this, but so far so good.  I sit in the den watching the trees swaying with the gusts and it's very nerve wracking.  We've had trees fall a couple years ago, so I am very aware of gusts!!!! 

LB As you said, hopefully you'll all be together for Mother's Day.  Sad that you couldn't all be together for Passover.

Hi LB, Good that your storm wasn't as bad as a lot of others. I've seen your Governor on the news. He's very cautious and I credit him for that. I agree about it all being confusing.
Enjoy your week at work
Excellent you're getting your 2nd dose next week. Thumbs up!

Good Morning  :)

Beautiful day here and winds have finally stopped! Just a slight breeze which will be welcome by me. I'm planning to do lots of yard work .. edging out from and around three large raised veg gardens and long flower garden along back porch. I'm tired of weed whacking and trying to make life easier. Boy that sounds like a contradiction right now! lol After all the rain the ground is much softer so fingers crossed it goes smoothly.  ::) :)

Have a pleasant day everyone. Take care.

Waving to All the Cheerios!  :)
Hi baz, Yes it was a great day to do that work and well said by you about getting to the completion making it easier in the future.
I got a lot done and about half way there.

Raining here today so will help for more soft ground (and give my lower back and knees a rest. lol) Problem is the next two days the lows are 27 and 32 (with light slushy snow tomorrow morning) warming up just a bit so not planning to work outside in that! Brrrr Mother Nature's final wintry burst I hope.

Hi jicaji, Sure is another nice sunny and warm day!! I have stuff to do inside but the outside keeps pulling me out there. Lol

I went to Home Depot earlier and got lots of Miracle Grow Top Soil for the flower gardens needing some new soil to invigorate them.
After that mulch. I might not lay mulch myself this year. I want triple shredded or fine shredded this year (and I can't find it in bags) so might have to hire someone to bring it and just let them spread it and save my back. BIG thumbs up!!

Grey drizzly day today then rain and thunderstorms tomorrow and more rain next week a few days. I need to mow! I can hear the damp grass growing. lol

Hi jicaji, Good about the Miracle Grow soil and planting your marigold seeds. Nice! Those seed pods produce a lot of seeds. No wonder a nursery can make so much money, right!
Thank you very much about the appts and tests.

Guess what? I actually got to mow today. The sun actually appeared and dried most of the lawn. I jumped at the chance to mow because it was really high and thick. I had the entire lawn aeriated and reseeded last Fall and on my! It worked! Took extra long to mow and just as long to clean out the under deck of mower but I got it done before tomorrow's and next weeks rains! Yay! I'm beat though. Left knee if banging as is lower back and feet. I'm out of shape after long winter. Lol I was determined to get it done. Now .. let it rain!  ;D
I'm heading to my recline now with my heating pad.  ;)

Good Morning LB, Thank you about family. I sure am ready to play out doors in garden! Good about arm soreness gone and not having been bad. And good to your doing good.

Did Copper follow you around so much before the pandemic and you being home for long periods of time and working off and on from home/office? I remember he used to bark a lot before at others when on a walk. I wonder if his constant barking at you now means he's trying to tell you something? Excellent about you scheduling his ultrasound. I remember you were planning to in April. Please keep us updated on that.

Another surprise sunny 72 day yesterday after a drizzly cool morning. When the sun came out I was immediately outside working in the gardens. LB I thought of you and your comment. Lol I got a lot more done yesterday. I ended by sprinkling Preen weed preventer in all the gardens and edged areas too then roughed up some ground where I want more grass then sprinkled grass seed then top layer of soil.

Hmmm I thought both the Preen and grass seed need watered in but the weatherman said rain and a possible "scattered" storm last evening. It was hard to believe it was so beautiful. I decided not to water to wait and see. Well holy thunderstorm!! Last night it definitely poured rain along with thunder and lightening. My husband said, "See I told you to wait. You got everything watered now!!" Lol Yep!!  :)

Wishing everyone a pleasant day. Take care.

oh Paulie   I feel so bad bout complaining about Copper.  I think he misses mewhen not home.  I somehow got into the house today without hime hearing me.  I caught him sitting in the middle of den close to the back door and he was wimpering, h got up and started whining .  He turned around and saw me nd was so happy!!!!  and of course the barking starts.   LO I wonder myaybe his tomache is bothering him.   I think he will be getting ulta sound next week.  he need it in 2 spots one in stomache area to check if he has kushens snd then his heart for his heart murmur. They will charge me only for 1 instead of 2. He wants attention but just to be petted.  H I hate to say but hes boring LOL  I guess I am just used to active entertining dogs but I have to say its better than he used to be.   lol

Awwww LB, No no no don't feel bad expressing your feelings about Copper. That's a lot on you to deal with.

Oh my gosh about you arriving home and Copper not hearing you come inside. Oh God love him laying there whimpering then suddenly SO excited to see you!! That is priceless! You are definitely his world.  ;) And you take excellent loving care of him!

Excellent he might be getting his ultra sound next week and in 2 spots. Awesome that they will charge you for only 1!

True you're used to more active dogs but cutie Copper is who he is and he's lucky to have you ... and good! that he's better than he used to be and that's thanks to you.  :)

Please keep me updated on him and give him a hug and kiss from me.  :) :-*

Hi!!  :)   Whew!! I've had a veeery busy past few days. I just read posts.

jicaji and LB, Whoa to you both agreeing to #3 the other day. I read it. I have to agree. LOL

I choose from yesterday's quotes #2. I love love love hugs!!  ;D

Geesh it's gotten cooler in my area and really windy today. Daytime highs are normal for April but those 70 degree days spoiled me.  ::) I'm sure they did for everyone. We're all ready for Spring and Summer.

LB, You'd love the high winds here. I remember you like windy days.

jicaji, Are you getting snow in your area??

I'm not ready to give up my lawn mowing yet. I have considered getting a smaller 'me' size riding mower but as long as I can use the push mower (although I don't have to push it. It takes off when I press down on the handle!) and I figure it's still good exercise while my knees hold out. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get everything mowed.

BUT! I asked the guy who mows my friend directly across the street from me if he'd edge my sidewalks and driveway and go around entire front, sides and backyard to weed whack the grass around fence posts and everything after he mows my neighbor weekly. Trust me there's a lot and he said yes!! Yay! Scratch that off my list.

And!! I've got a guy coming to look at and give me an estimate to lay black fine shredded mulch everywhere .. front, sides, backyard.
I'm super excited about that too! It took me a while to concede it's getting to be too much to do it all myself anymore but I've conceded. And happy. Oh yeah!!  :)

Well those are my updates. Aren't you happy I'm back with my long posts?! lol NOT!  :)

I wish you a relaxing night and weekend. Take care.

Hi LB! I just saw your post.  :) Oh my gosh to Copper!! Lol After you turned out the light and closed the door Copper evidently didn't bark or make noise. Wow. He must have been enjoying himself. Lol Him popping out when you opened the door is hilarious! I can only imagine your surprise.

Welllll so much for the end of my last post about having a relaxing night. You did good girl and got a lot done!! Now have a relaxing night and weekend.  :)

Good Morning Paulie  Look t it this way... Giving up some of the hyard work will give you more free time for you!!! It's cool here too today at least this morning. They say it will warm up this afternoon.  SUpose to warm up this week as well.   I am going to look on line this weekend for apartments condos.  July is coming up way to fast.  I am looking at an apartment next week but not so sure about it but I want to look to get an idea if I like tthat style  It has a lot of cool ammenities but I wont take advantage of it I know that. But doent hurt to look , What else do I do anyway. good way to get me out of the house!!!

Good Morning to you too LB, True about having more free time. Thumbs up!

Best wishes to you looking for apartments and condos online. I remember you looking at places last year. Good idea to start looking now and going to look at an apartment already next week. Photos on line can be deceptive and make some rooms look larger than they really are. The apt you're going to look at sounds like a different floor plan maybe since you mentioned you want to get an idea if you like the style. True doesn't hurt to look and gets you out of the house!

Good Morning  :)

A pretty and promising to be a pleasant 68 degree day today. I plan to trim back all the Hydrangeas. They need it!

One of my daughter's had me and my husband to her home yesterday for my birthday meal from her. Having it on a weekday last week didn't work as she and husband (both have had vaccine shots) work all day then Grace has homework after dinner. Was definitely okay with me. We each had a really special time together and they gave me awesome presents. A really pleasant day.

Well time for another cup of coffee.  :)

Wishing all a good day. Take care.

Yes this aprtment is like a hotel where you go into lobby and wak through halls to get to your apartment no direct door to out side except balcony. Not sure I will like that especially with Copper knowing him he wil be in hall  LOL  Plus it looks like no closet space.   But doesnt hurt to look. Going to be a beautiful day here today. Yesterday ended up being cooler and cloudier than they said. Copper is gett ing ultrasound tomorrow no eating or drinikng  after midnight  :o

I think you were going to take him to vet then go to work. I think but not sure.
Take care and try not to worry too much. I know .. easier said than done! Focus on happy news results.

LB, Yay! Excellent news about Copper! You had a beautiful day weather wise and news wise. I imagine the vet wants him on the antibiotic and supplement to be on the save side since no known reason for his levels to be high.
I love cutie Copper's picture and they sure did shave him. I wonder if it will itch growing back. Yay good news for Copper today.

Good Morning LB, I'm sure the vet's office will hear from you today about Copper's meds. Maybe the ultrasound was to diagnose to be sure and to monitor? In any event was good news. Good! Geesh a 90 minute drive one way. Does Copper enjoy car rides?

Good Morning jicaji, Have you seen your Hummer yet today? Did you get freezing temps overnight? If so did you leave your feeder outside or bring in?

Freezing temps in my area last night so I brought my feeders inside so they wouldn't crack from freezing. Maybe they wouldn't crack but I was afraid to take the chance. Will put back out today.

High winds here too. This morning it snowed looking like a blizzard at times but passed over and now the sun is shining! Yay  :)

Poor Hummers didn't expect the cold they'd be encountering during their migration for sure. Maybe yours moved on today since you didn't see any yet? Maybe not. Okay to you not taking feeder inside. Lows tonight in my area 35 so I think I'll leave mine outside. It's supposed to warm up tomorrow.  We can say we're trying our best to help the little fairies.  :)

Good that Copper likes car rides. I understand the trouble of him getting into the car though. My Zeus (Saint Bernard) had a heck of a time when he was older but I knew how to lift his hind quarters to help. He lived to almost 13 years. I miss my Zeusie) Anyway! Good Copper likes car rides if you decide to go to your old vet.

Sounds like you had a very busy work day! If the vet thought it was urgent about Copper's meds they would have called by now.

Oh wow about boil on your ear lobe. That hurts. Maybe you went this evening? Best wishes to you getting that taken care of. Nope don't you wait any longer!  ;)

Loooong day for me and husband too. He had a follow-up dental appointment that went way longer than we'd expected and he was exhausted afterwards. The dentist even asked him afterwards if they were still friends. Oh my! He said yes of course.  :)
When we finally got home he napped and I did too because for some reason I woke up last night in the middle of the night and could not get back to sleep. I soooo hate when that happens. I think when I finally did get back to sleep it was soon time to wake up.  ::) lol

jicaji, I'm sure you're on Hummer Fairy watch.  ;D

There were two new visitors in my yard last night. 2 Fox or is foxes proper spelling? Any way, my area has been seeing a lot of them around with a neighbor saying now is when they're eating more to feed their recently born little ones. Then two visits from two different deer families. Can't tell the bucks from does now with shed antlers. Geesh there was a very young deer with one group.

There were two new visitors in my yard last night. 2 Fox or is foxes proper spelling? Any way, my area has been seeing a lot of them around with a neighbor saying now is when they're eating more to feed their recently born little ones. Then two visits from two different deer families. Can't tell the bucks from does now with shed antlers. Geesh there was a very young deer with one group.

Have a good day all.  :)

I am on Fairy watch....nothing since the one I saw yesterday.

How lucky you are to see the fox and deer!!  I remember years ago we had a mother fox with her babies way in the back yard.  They were so cute....looked like baby german shepherds!!  They played just like little pups and the mom was ever vigilant!!

Hi jicaji, I knew you'd be on fairy watch.  :) Same here not haven't seen any yet. This year I have the humming bird feeders on the far side of the deck away from the BB box feeders and it's not as easy to look for the hummers. The Journey North website shows some sightings nearby my area but nothing here yet as far as I know.

Awww very nice that you got to watch a momma fox and her little ones. Sounds very cute! Nature can be awesome for sure.

Hi   Needed time away from computer. busy day...busy week.  The vet still didnot call andI forgot.  I will need to set up a reminder to call I need to get him hearworm meds which that is my priority right now.  If they didnt do his med like you said he may not needas bad as they made me think he does.  Yes I went to urgent care. It's a  cyst that was infected.   He opened up got all the infection out but cyst is still there. He told me I may need it surgically removed.  I do hve a cyst on the other ear but it never bothered me. Been there for years and was told to leave it alone if it's not bothering me.  This new one devloped over night and got infected .  Not sure what to do.  I am on oral anttibiotics and also a cream . Went to orthopedic this morning. heee time for me to get my shots in knees. I told him it didnt work that well this time.  He said we'll try again but if I a feeling pain to come in after 4 months to get a steroid shotyo help until I m able to do the other shot again (every 6 months) I also mentione my left hip is started to bother me at times .Of course its from the way I walk not bending my knees. ALwsays something!!!  Happy Weekend. Oh I am looking at 2 apartments tomorrow.

LB....My hip hurts as well probably from my knee.  I was getting cortisone shots every 3/4 months until last December when he told me no more cortisone!  So here I am in pain with every step.  I feel like I'm being pushed into a knee replacement.  I'll probably go to another ortho for a second opinion before going forward with surgery.

My heavens LB you have a lot on your plate to deal with.

Hopefully you read this Saturday morning .. so here's your first reminder to call the vet. If office isn't open yet put a reminder on your cell phone calendar to call after office opens today.

Very good that you went to urgent care and are now taking an antibiotic and using a cream on your ear.

Very good also about you seeing ortho Dr. One step at a time (no pun intended) with getting shots in your knees. All you can do is give it the 4 months suggested to see if additional shot is needed. Easier said than done I know. About your hip .. have you tried using a heating pad on the area that hurts?
I find a heating pad works wonders in alleviating the pain. It comes back after a while but it does help in the interim. I know I have to resume my chiropractic appts but life has been busy (my excuse haha) and I just don't want to begin those routine appts yet. If you haven't tried a heating pad I hope you try it. I've used it on my knees too.
I hope the shots give your knees relief.

jicaji, So you're not being given anything to relieve your knee pain since Dr told you no more cortisone?
My Dr prescribed a gel I can apply to my knees (and works other places too. Today I had to apply it to my knuckles on one hand.) It does help alleviate pain and has something in it that's supposed to help with arthritis. But if your knee's cartilage is pretty much gone maybe it wouldn't help as much?
A second opinion is a good idea.

He did give me a cream to put on it but it does squat!  And the cortisone was working less and less as time went by.

Ah well, did my food shopping yesterday and today I can just plant some additional seeds and buy some herbs to plant in my pots on the deck.  I like to get basil and oregano and parsley.

Next week is my Violet's 3rd birthday party!!!  My daughter is having a few relatives come for a "Tea Party!"  Can't wait.

Jacaji  what about the gel shots.  I am taking the mthey are only allowed every 6 months I can take thes teroid 4 months after get gel shot if I start feeling pain then .  Thats the net step.   He said to take the steroid shot If neded so I dont have to be in pain until I am able to take gel shots again. I heard him talking to nurse outside and he was saying I am still  young. I guess she was quetioning surgery. My hip isnt hurting all the tie but starting to at times. when I stand a certain way.    Thanks for the reminder  Paulie I just called  it's 3 meds totaling $324 .  For an ultra sound that came back good I am not spending $324 on meds  I think I need to find a new vet.    Looking at 2 apartments today

LB...My friend was telling me about gel shots she received.  When I questioned him two years ago about it, he said I wasn't a candidate for them.  Of course, he didn't explain why.   

Good luck with the apt. hunting.

Hi jicaji, Oh ok! He did give you cream. I do have to agree though that it does squat a lot of times for me too. Maybe some relief but not totally.

Today sounds like a pleasant day for you with planting things.

Oh boy!! Next week is Violet's birthday "Tea Party"! 3 years old. Wow. Where'd the time go jicaji?! They grow fast.

Hi LB, You're welcome for the reminder. Oh my gosh $324 for meds?! Does that include the heartworm you mentioned you also needed to get? Can that be bought OTC? It's been a while since I've bought dog items. Maybe it's not OTC.

Good luck looking at apartments today! And now 2 of them! I'm crossing my fingers and toes to your finding a great one soon.
Let us know then about them.

Good Mornng. Paulie $324  was just for the perscription drugs for his liver and hear I guess not even sure what they are for They didint explain it correctly.  I just ended up getting thr heart guard next month I will get the nexgurd for ticks nd fleas  I hate NJ!!! everything is so expensive.  I may go for a second opinion down the road but according to what he told me his heart,  live,r and spleen are all normal size according to ultra sound  The one thing I noticed about this place is that the vetinarians are always different seem they all leave.m I not once saw the vetinarian that actually owns the place.  Once I find out what I am doing with moving I'll look into new vet.

OMG the apartments were a bust. The first one  I went to I saw the guy givng a couple a tour and that was  30 minutes after my appointment was suppose to be so I left. I will email and make appointmnet again I will try to get first appointment of day LOL

The other one was soo tiny but I loved the bathroom kitchen and the layout I woud have to get rid of my kitchen table and I would have no room to work when I work from home.  This one was the hotel type. It reminded me of the move The Shining. hall after hall after hall!!  I could hear doggies barking through the doors.  OH my!!when I would get home from work the way copper barks!!! i would be in trouble all the time.  Plus get this!!!! The charge for parking!!!!!! $50 a month but if I under  the ground parking  (indoor parking) $75 I liked it but not for me. I refuse to have to pay for parking , The rent turned out to be the same as I pay now with dog fee and parking . Plus if I wanted to use gym yoga business center piano  place pool and all the other extras that would be $550 a year  SHoot the gym and pool here is included with my rent  . The other place is nicer but not worth it.  As much as i hate where I live now you do get more fpr the money.  So I will be searching again. Next week (when I am working from home gain) I will call a realtor about renting a condo/townhouse. MY town has so many there is go yo be 1 at a resonable price

Good Morning LB, Wow! That was the cost for just the one med?! Good about getting the heart guard and nex guard. Good idea about getting a second opinion and a new vet whether you move to a new place or not. I'm like you and always preferred seeing the same vet at each appt. They get to know the animal best over time just like us seeing the same Dr. Just makes sense to me.

Oh my gosh yesterday's apartment looking sure was a bust!! Rude of the guy at your first appointment and yikes! the second one that was small does sound like a nightmare with all of the extra charges and then add all the dogs barking on top of that. Yep scratch that one off your list!

I would looove to see you get a condo/townhouse like you had before. You used to park out front by your front door and you had such a nice back yard and that pretty tree that had a robin's nest too. It seemed so cozy. Fingers crossed for a nice and affordable condo/townhouse for you and Copper. :)

Oh my Copper is a stinker! He looks comfy! lol Hey! If he was able to jump up onto your bed maybe it can get into your car easier than you thought? Maybe not tho with the car seat being not as wide from the side then the open space below the seat. Hmm just wishful thinking to help you out.  ;)

Hi Just settling in.  Been looking for apartments  and it's getting tiredsome I always run into a wall. It's either too much money and/or they dont allow dogs.  I found 2 perfect places but 1  they didnt allow dogs over 25lbs.  The other which is $200 less than I pay now and seems nicer doesn't allow Bassett Hounds as one of the restrictions.   So now I pray the place I am staying doesnt raise the rent which woul dbe a miracle.  I will be getting the new lease within the month Probably end of May.  All I knw people are leaving here left and right!! So many vacancies

HAPPY DAY, CHEERIOS!  :)

paulie, it's going to be warmer than normal here today, too, but maybe only 83 degrees, if the forecast is right.  It's very breezy, though - not bad!  I tend to manage my home's interior sun exposure through the windows using the drapes and blinds, so it's still very comfortable in my house.  I don't need the A/C yet.  Yay!  I think a big chunk of the eastern half of the country is getting these warmer temps right now.  It's Spring... kind of goes with the territory.  Hope you enjoy your day, no matter the temps!  :)

Waving to All the Cheerios!  :D
Hi baz, Same here with lowering blinds/drapes. It makes it cozy and cooler. Love cozy.  :) Yes Spring and goes with the territory.

Yesterday I cleaned all deck railings and stair railings with Awesome cleaner. Have you heard of it? It is awesome! It cleans anything! I have white railings and white side boards all around the deck. After winter they get grey splashy spots on them so maintenance is important to keep shiny white. I did that yesterday with 84 temp.

Today I power washed the lower porch and it was 87. Felt soooo good and warm. Wore sun screen of course.  ;) Tomorrow rain and cooler as a front moves through but as you said, it's Spring. You enjoy your temps too and watching your bog.  :) I think that's what you called it in the past. Sounds very pretty and interesting.

Oh geez LB, Another frustrating year looking for a new place. Why in the world doesn't the one place allow Bassett Hounds??
I've never heard of that.
Uh oh with so many vacancies at your current complex. I remember last year when they sent you a new lease that was all messed up. Keep looking. Have you contacted a realtor yet about condos or townhomes? Maybe that's your solution. I know you're frustrated. Don't give up.

Hi Camp. Glad to see you.  Going to call relators next week Paulie. Fro what I found out after getting Copper. Basset hounds tent to be Territorial. which I never knew. It can be the howling but copper doesnt howl he barks.  He did howl 2x in his sleep it was so cute.  LOL

Hi baz, Yea I sure did get a lot done. And I'm paying for it now being sore in places I didn't know existed. lol I'm literally chuckling right now. I love your sweating to the oldies! Honestly I've told myself to put in ear plugs and listen to good beat music when I'm working outside but I've forgotten to do that.  :) Tomorrow's weather forecast for me is high winds and gusts to 55-65 mph. Geesh. Soooo this evening all of the deck and porch furniture and smaller tables were moved up to more secure areas. Go figure!

Hi Tig  :)

Hi LB, Good to calling realtors. Let someone else help you in your search. Thanks for the Basset Hounds explanation. Who knew?! Good that Copper barks. His howling the 2x while sleeping does sound cute! I can imagine your surprise!!  :)

Looong day for me. Woke up to trucks, talking and banging out front of house. Turns out the front street was being dug up for a water leak for either my house or neighbor across the street.
Was told they were turning the water off. Rushed to wash etc because me and hubby had to leave later for his dental appt.
 
Turns out it was lady across the street water leak. She called me saying she asked them/the township who is going to pay for digging up her front yard? Does she need to get a job pole dancing?!! She's 81 years old!! When she told me that I almost wet myself laughing!! She's something else.

Anyway after his dental appt we had a full day of errands and shopping I hadn't planned for. My feet, knees and body ache from past two days and today. I'm heading to bed and Zzzzz. ;)

Wishing a good night and Zzzz to each of you. Take care.

Good Morning  I actually liked this apartment but it's $100 more a month than I am paying now.  so waiting to see about my lease renewal in how much it's going up I loved the layout had a walk in closet.  Lots of room to add more furniture I dont have LOL  Not as much closet space as here and washer drying is stackable in kitchen .So yes pros and cons but I like the layout there better than here.

Good Morning LB, Nice!! Glad you liked the apartment you looked at yesterday. I hope no one scoops it up while you're waiting to hear about current lease. You look at another one today (the one from last weekend) correct? Good luck and have a good day.

Good Morning jicaji, Enjoy your day today at Violet's birthday party and with family. Sounds special and pleasant!

All quotes good I think. If I have to choose I'll go with #1

Hi just a quick check in I saw an apartment today.  It was ok I didnt see the actual apartment but saw a 2 bedroom to get idea.  The 1 bedroom is avaiabe mid JUne If I decide she would wait to JUly.  It a tiny bit bigger than my current place Its a small complex. road is  not well maintained but either is the one I live  at.  It is about $100-$150 cheaper than what I pay now.  Close to $150 or more if rent goes up to what I think it will be going up (I lookded at my current apaertment web site to see what they advertised rent for new renters)  and allows Copper. I think I ike the one yesterday better but this one is cheaper and it's not bad quiet. Back yard is to woors so copper wont be barking at everyone. LOL

Hi LB, Thanks for the check in about today's apartment.

It's nice that the 1 bedroom will be held for you till July if you decide on that one and if you decide to move. Comparing your two possible moves has you making some decisions for sure. It's nice though that you have some choices finally! Good.

It's wise of you to have looked at what new renters at your current complex will be charged too. Are you going to continue looking or decide on what you've already looked at? Decisions decisions. I don't envy you but you'll choose what's best for you and Copper.

I am not sure what to do . of course I am leaning toward the cheaper one.  Its nice but I only saw the 2 bedroom I wish I can see the 1 and not just rely on the floor plan  I can stay there for the year to try  to pay off bills since I will be saving money not much but some but puts me in a little better position than I am currently in
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on May 03, 2021, 09:38:17 AM
Good Morning LB,

I wish you could see the one bedroom too to get a better look and idea of what you'd have. Your thinking about the cheaper one has merit for you as you explained. I understand your not being sure what to do. Geesh who would have thought you'd have such a tough decision with choices?!

Oh! I've been meaning to tell you last week on GMA morning show there was a piece about dogs separation anxieties with their family during the pandemic with more people working from home and being there so much more then the anxiety for the pet when left alone.
It sounded like what you've described with Copper.

Hi LB, Oh boy a 2 bedroom home to look at today! I hope it goes well for you! Would you get a washer/dryer installed? 

Oh brother about the current lease going up $50 and what you learned from your neighbor. Yes sounds like it time to get out of there.

Hey It's cute tiny old house.  It does have a basemment which where the washer and dryer is. The ony upgrade is the floor.  It's on a main road so lots of traffic but I can park in a parking lot it's right next to a tiny strip mall where one unit is a martial arts plae where the husband woks/owns.  He would do repairs. There is a littlle grassy area for where I can wal copper. No patio door for copper to look out of  No central air I would have to get window units but he would help installl them.   It has a few steep steps  Not sure how my knees will handle every day. Nice couple they said they would get washer dryer but I can add to the rent t opay them back. The rent is cheap enough to do that .  I am confused!!!!!! Need to make the list to compare the 3 I looked at so far.   I am at slim picking either places dont have washer/dryer or dont allow dogs or too expensive I think I'l just live in my car!! LOL Oh I called 911 today. LOL Someones smoke detectgor was going off for like 20 minutes I looked outside and saw maintence drive by they looked around and drove off.  SO I decided to call 911.  Maintence didnt seems to care. They finally showed up (maintence) to inestigate but I already called cops.  I guess false alarm but still it wasnt going off like batery died. I heard those before.  It was buiding right across from me,  I wasnt risking loosing what litle I have

Oh my heavens LB, You've had one heck of a day!

A very good description of the house you saw today. With the owner/landlord working/owning a place right next to house sounds like he'd be available to do work or repairs you needed. Are there any windows Copper could look out if furniture was by window he could sit on, if allowed on it? When it snows would Copper go on the grassy snow area and would you still be able to go on your walks since by a busy road? The items you described they'd purchase and you repay adding to rent and him install air conditioners sounds nice. I'm just brain storming trying to help you with pros and cons. I understand your confusion about your choices. You making a list of pros and cons for all 3 is a good idea. Maybe something else will become available yet you can add to the list. Oh geez LB

I think your calling 911 was good. Better safe than sorry considering the fire in a nearby building that happened before. You did good!

Good Morning baz, Yes sounds like we're definitely on the same page with concerns about cute house. You expressed additional concerns I had too about steps, parking, security etc. Good you posted them.
Same here too with roller coaster weather. At least it's not snow and ice. Lol  :) Today is cooler than usual but sunny and pleasant. Good because today I mow.

Good Morning LB, It's good that you're looking at different options for housing and making a pros/cons list. I had another thought. Who would be responsible for mowing the grassy area by the house? Did you contact a realtor to help? At least this year you have options because last year was a flop for options! One day at a time. You'll make the correct decision.

Good Morning jicaji, The large Hummingbird is still visiting my front window feeder. It's a female. I hope she nests nearby. Baby Hummers!  :)

Good morning to everyone and wishing you a pleasant day.

Hey I was going to og on and respond this morning but I started work and didnt stop. It's been a crazy week at work.  The steps to go up are inside.  I don't need to go through front door. Enterance on side as well which is right by the parking lot where my car woud be a 5ft walk. LOL I would have to walk across parking lot to get to the lawn area which would be mowed by the lanlord.  It's also off a side road which has houses down the road. the land loar dof hom lives dow the road. He would do most of the fixing up.   I woud need to get window air conditioners which I am not so thrilled.  I still got to look but Most of what I see is too much money or no dog I am leaning toward the cheaper apartment. I woud save some moeny but not as much ass the home.  If the cute house had central air and was in a less busy road I may have icked but I am thinking still about cause I would save  a lot of money Copper woudnt be happy I dont thing. No low windows for him to look at hre and the oher place at leasr has patio door to look at. He loves looking at there. I always put copper first ven before me.  A lot of people are telling me to get rid of himso I can get a better place.  I can't!!!

Awwwwww LB to you always putting Copper first. That doesn't surprise me.

Hmmm sounds like you're leaning towards the place with the patio. And I'm assuming it has central air too and not a busy street.

Thanks for explaining more about the little house and the parking near the door to house but still busy street and air conditioners needed like you said.

You'll make the correct decision for both you and cutie Copper .. and you'll be getting away from your current complex with lots of issues.

The Grosbeaks are back and this year's Cowbirds.  Never had Cowbirds before.  Not sure I'm a fan.  They seem to be at the feeder most often.  I understand the female does not make a nest for her eggs, rather lays eggs in other birds' nests, who then raise the cowbirds as their own!!!  Interesting.

I am going to see him toorrow to talk more.  He's not understand how uch I make and how much rent is and also how much I owe  :-X :-\ I am trying to get  cheaper rent so I can payoff bills faster. He hates where I live now and think I deserve to live somewhere nicer. I hates see me live  where I live now (it's not that bad but I hate it too) He keeps picking out apartments that is so out of my budget and doesnt understand why I can't afford them   lol He's so back in time to  He doesnt understand How I keeping looking at the money aspect of it.

Hi jicaji, Nice to Grosbeaks! I haven't had them here before. Cowbirds yes.

I really like Cowbirds. They've come to my yard and feeders for about five years. Have you heard their "kaplunk" sound like a big water drip into a bucket yet? It's really neat. I have a funny story how I discovered that sound was a Cowbird. They are friendly birds and don't move when I fill the feeders. They like suet too.

Yes they lay their eggs in other birds nests to hatch and be fed by whatever bird nest it hatches in. I've seen small House Sparrows feeding young fledged, but larger, Cowbirds sitting at the ground feeder chirping away to be fed with beaks open. I was surprised first time I saw this and couldn't understand how the Sparrow had such a big baby bird! LOL That's when I did some research and found out about the egg laying. Interesting right?!

The Catbirds have returned too. I love Catbirds too. They're friendly too and have a meow call.
Goldfinches are back too. Today I saw a bright yellow male Goldfinch and ruby red Cardinal by the feeders together. Very pretty.
I know we're really happy to have Spring in full motion!!  :)

Hi LB, Awww to your father worrying about where you live and wanting the best for you. It sounds like he apparently does not understand the high cost of living but still wanting the best for you vs your salary etc. He sounds like a sweetheart. It's nice you're going to visit him tomorrow and you two talk more.

Your wanting a lower or comparable rent to pay down debt is commendable definitely. I'm glad you're contacting a realtor. That way you're not leaving any stone unturned ... as the saying goes. Maybe you'll luck out with a realtor. Hope so!!

I found another apartment but its a 40 minute commute to work which I am ok. It's in Phillipsburg, NJ  On the border of PA.  SO cheep brand new and gorgeous It has all the ammentites od the other apartment gym pool it serves complimntary breakfast on sundays and has a starbucks. Pool table etc. I wonder if that all cost extra s well as the first place I saw, I'm calling them tomorrow  It's in an area I wouldnt mind living with all the leaves in the fall etc West Jersey is beutiful with scenery . It's further from my father though I got used to living close to him  and able to sjust stop buy (not that I, did he's neve rhoe)  But it's about an hour away.  He's 85 and not getting any younger.   UPDATE I read the reviews and the reviews of this apartment are poor. tThe extra ammenties are $400 a year (and I probaby wont use 3/4 of them) and it's obligated.   Imay check it out anyway.   hmmm

Also, I agree with what jicaji said. Realtor will know your budget.

jicaji, Well said good advice to LB. Enjoy your birds! I have to put out fresh nectar in feeders today. The Hummer at the front window is hitting it hard!

Good Morning  :)

Hi jicaji, A nice variety of bird seed and suet your husband buys. Do you have to add seed and suet often?

I've got two hanging birdseed feeders and one ground seed feeder plus two hanging suets. Lately I've been having to put two new suets out daily. I decided to get a feeder called Sky Cafe with 4 sections for different seeds. Makes it a lot easier not having to refill so often for sure. Hungry birds. Lol

Agreed to finches turning bright yellow. I like the way they fly up, down, up down.  :) Bluebirds do too. Protection I guess.

Hi LB, TGIF for you! Lol about hearing your Woodpecker before seeing him. Blue Jays are really loud too!

Beautiful weather here too. Loving it!!

Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: Puff on May 14, 2021, 09:19:15 AM
Ah ha - - We have a Sky Cafe too, Paulie. Was worried for a couple weeks, but they finally left the older feeder in the back yard to come and entertain us when we're in the kitchen.  We got the red-topped dome after reading a consumer's post of the different top.  Use half for oily suns and half for striped.  House finch and Cardinals mostly use it. 

Also in kitchen bay window is a Tony-created natural wood feeder for the nyjer seed; this is the main hangout for the goldfinch.  I found out many years back that house finch dominate goldfinch - UNLESS you reverse things and put the feeder holes under the perches.  Goldfinch will eat hanging down, house finch don't. These two feeders both hang ala pulley system from eave overhang.

Third feeder, yep 3 feeders at kitchen bay, we have a tube on a telescoping pole that we stock with oily suns.  The most traffic here would be the chickadees, and sometimes the cardinals and house finch.

Also interesting to watch, but definitely irritating to watch, is the neighborhood squirrels.  We finally got the setup just right for the overhand/pulley feeders.  Da** squirrels learned how to lean off the roof, over eave, and lunge at those two feeders.  Sometimes they missed, hurling feeder/s at the window glass.  Sometimes they made it.  Trial and error we got them at the right height and just far enough from the gutter.  This third feeder the squirrels gave up on long ago.  The tube feeder is encased in a bar cage, high on a metal telescoping pole, with a vee baffle so they can't made way up.  They are determined, so are we!

We have, I think, about 6 more feeding setups in the bad yard -- our patio entertainment.  Three water features, small wren/chickadee house (currently they haven't settle that dispute, but sparrows did cry uncle), one hummingbird feeder, and one oriole feeder.

I have a running account at Wildbirds Unlimited, stock up whenever there's a sale.  They store at their site so I don't have critters crawling or flying.  Also keep supply here at house, outside three 40-gallon decorative metal trash cans, strategically bungie-latched to keep out squirrels and chipmunks.

How the heck do we have any time or $$$$ left.  I swear somebirdy has posted a set of directions saying "for a good party fly to xx".   LOL  Yes we're crazy, but it is FUN.

Hi Puff, Oh how I enjoyed reading your post!

Same here about it taking a while to trust and begin using the new feeder.
I hadn't seen the Consumer Reports article about the red dome. What makes the red top different?

Your various feeding areas sound awesome! Tony was definitely creative with that natural wood feeder for nyjer seed! Your kitchen bay window with 3 feeders sounds very cool and pretty with all the visitors.

I hadn't heard that house finches dominate the gold finch!! Interesting. I wonder if that's why there are very few gold finches at my nyjer feeder this year because I've noticed more house finches this year and there were always lots of gold finches in the past. Probably. Thanks for that info.

Agreed to the squirrels being verrrry intelligent figuring out how to get to seed. They're the reason I got the Sky Cafe with dome plus to have four different seeds in one handy place. A quick story .. I had only one place to hang the Sky Cafe and it was way far away from the main feeding area and too difficult to take down to refill. So I hung it in main feeding area with four handles on top of pole to hang different feeders. Well the squirrels eventually began climbing the pole to tip the feeder to get seeds. My husband put Vaseline on the pole and it's something else watching the squirrels try to climb it then just slide down to the bottom. LOL There's plenty of other goodies in the ground feeder for them.

Your back yard feeding area along with water features sounds sooo pretty and relaxing. The bay window and back yard with all the different species of birds sounds awesome.

Oh my I'm laughing because I have two 40-gallon metal trash cans to keep critters out too!!

I agree to you saying how do we have time or $$$ left!! And in addition for me is the evening "buffet" my husband and I call it for the deer and other nightly visitors. Lol True it is time consuming and gets costly but you/Tony and me/Charlie enjoy it! I laughed reading "for a good party fly to xx". Yes we're crazy and yes it is FUN!  ;D

Well, Paulie you got me with the deer.  When I first moved here (almost 50 years ago now)  had more visits by fauna.  Civilization altered visitor list.  Haven't seen a deer for a long time.  We do get nightly visits by fox, coyote, racoon.  They do a nice job of eating the ground fall, hoofing/digging up lawn.

BTW I got the red dome idea when it was put on the market.  Consumer post suggested what he did - he put red tape strips down the hood.  His conclusion was that cardinals reacted positively to the red.  Ergo spend even more $$ on red hood.  LOL

Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on May 15, 2021, 10:33:45 AM
Good Morning all  :)

Hi LB, Good! You definitely earned it.

Hi Puff, Lol well you got me on the almost 50 years. Nice! I've been in place for 32 years. Interesting about your having more visits in the past and yes because civilization definitely altered that for you! It seems to have worked in the opposite for me.

I don't know about your location but I live in a house development that has some busy roads surrounding it in the distance. Lots of mature trees etc and some wooded areas not far away that developers keep building on. Thus the wildlife is being disturbed and being seen a lot more in my and surrounding neighborhoods. Very sad and disturbing for fauna for sure.

Yep same here to fox, some coyote and racoon. A fox built her den in the far end of my back yard in my big brush pile where I dump trimmings etc a few years ago. Surprised me!! Skunks seem to have disappeared. Not complaining there. Lol My St Bernard (now passed) used to get sprayed regularly! He was such a gentle giant.

Thank you for explaining the red hood. Very interesting about cardinals reacting positively to it!  LOL about spending more $$.

Hi jicaji, What are you up to this weekend? Enjoying your outside too I'm sure.

Weather to finally safely plant vegetables has arrived here. Yay! I'll be spreading out fresh garden soil in 2 raised veg gardens then do some planting. Not doing as much this year though. I'll have to tell you about something new I'm planting this year. Sounds interesting!
Gotta go.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day. Take care.

Garden talk with tsk and paulie  I've got the same ugly weather as tsk since we're only a few miles apart.  Worked my buns off yesterday getting garden soil ready to plant - now too cold and wet.  It figures.  Tomorrow, tomorrow there's always tomorrow. . .

Something new, paulie.  Sounds mysterious.  My food garden is at least 10 crops, not counting flowers.  I have to be some kinda crazy!  (Ton would agree with that.)  Always need food, thus the veggie garden.  ("Buy it at the store.")  He might agree with the flora though.  Need them for the birds, butterflies, tweets.

tsk - you said you might plant the celery.  Did you remember?

Puff, Yep planted it today. It's called  Giant Tree Tomato. I ordered it from Burgess Seed and Plant Co. It supposedly grows to 8' tall and grows 1 lb tomatoes. Time will tell! Will be interesting to watch. I still bought some additional tomato plants just in case.

Wow 10 crops in your garden. Sounds like a delicious variety. Na you're not crazy. You enjoy your gardening and veggies for sure. I did laugh at the "Buy at the store." That's no fun!
I laughed at your working your buns off yesterday. I hear ya! What you did requires a good bit of work and bending too. It stinks about your weather today being cold and wet. Definitely not conducive to planting and yucky wet soil. I don't know your location but I hope it's not headed to PA!

I've been down sizing with veggies. I thought I was down sizing flowers too in garden but this year I've added more of the varieties I like.  ::)

Ooooo tsk might plant celery. I've never done that. I'm going to google it. Interesting.

jicaji, With your nice weather and it being Saturday no wonder your nursery was crowded. Everyone had the same idea! Good idea to wait until Monday. I do that too .. wait for a weekday. I figure most everyone is at work so less people. My husband and I like shopping weekdays because we feel like we're "getting away with something" and feel free with most others at work and we've been retired for years! Lol

OK, since you asked paulie - and all others listening in - buy a plant or two (actually small tray of 8, cheap) involves no staking, no bugs, not big/invasive, no trouble.  Tada! Done!.  Really has a big taste, looks nothing like stalks at store, but good taste.  Producers farms must do a lot of watering.

Forgot to mention - Don't dig out the celery plants.  Take a knife and just cut off the number of stalks you want.  Pull out in fall.

There used to be celery farm just below the hill from us, turn of the century. Then it became a garden center. It closed about 10 years ago. They had overreached with having too many flower outlets around town, IMHO.

Good Morning to all  :)

Puff, Thanks for the celery info. Sounds easy. I watched a utube video too. It said it doesn't grow well in heat .. needs cooler temps. Hmmm Also 130 to 140 days to mature. Takes lots of watering so yes to your comment that farms must so a lot of watering! I'm tempted to try it. We're going to a nursery this week so I'm going to look for some to 'maybe' try. Ton's comment to you earlier "Buy at store" about other things might be what I do. Lol

Tig, Interesting story.



Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on May 16, 2021, 09:44:07 AM
Oh my heavens! An interesting bit of info I just learned! I was telling my husband about maybe planting celery and he told me this.

A man who was our neighbor (behind our property and down from us a bit) and his property ran down towards ours where he had a huge field behind us where he planted corn and other crops told my husband years ago that our property and surrounding properties used to be a celery farm!! Well I'll be! I never knew this!!

Just because - have to mention my home is built on a former carrot farm.  When I first moved in, when you had to mow the lawn you would occasionally mow over a carrot top and get the smell. I do plant carrots.

Interesting morning/afternoon. . .Ton's son and DIL came up from FL for the weekend.  Stopped by for a goodbye before leaving this evening.  I was out in back because I started planting flora as I had planned.  Had the put down the spade and be social but then the entertainment started.  4 squirrels running after each other running up and down trees, clicking like they do; looked like 3 were youngsters of same family chasing an intruder.

While talking, got lucky that DIL had a phone to take pics of the visitor birds that came to the party.  Got pic of chickadee, cardinal, finches, and ready for this?, how about our grosbeak, our wren, our hawk - it was like they all showed up right on cue and just to make the visit end on a good note.  Have to see from pics if it was our cooper hawk or red-tailed hawk.  Belly looked unusal soft  yellow, but maybe sun reflection.  When they get home she said she'd send pic to me.

It has a finished basement I can use for exercise room or office.   It's in an area I wanted to move to.   More country like.   There is a couple of applications in already but fingers crossed!!!!!

Hi baz, Celery plan yep but a no go. The nursery didn't have any and yes I think it's too late to start growing in my area. I was disappointed! lol

Puff, A carrot farm! That's cool. It sounds like you didn't want to put down the spade to stop planting. lol If so I understand. Same thing happened to me recently one evening. Someone stopped by to chat and I had to post pone what I was doing until the next day. Turned out to be a pleasant visit though.  :) 

Your entertainment that arrived sounds like fun watching. And then wow quite an avian show! Nice that DIL took pics and was going to send to you and the hawk too. Were you able to identify?

ok not so sure now  it's perfect except for the steps. There are about 5 steps t go to the front door. so I owuld have to do that about 4-5 times a day with copper and think and thinking about bring in groceries  and cases of water. Plus it has a fully finished basement huge!!! It would remain emprty until I a able to get furnure for office tv for gm. LOL But I have to sleep on it.  Shucks!!! Those stupid steps!!!!! I never thought steps would be an issue.  I grew up in a house full of steps!!! I just want to cry!!!!!! It would be perfect if it wasnt for steps.  Basement would be for storage for now so wasnt worried about that !!! I guess it wasnt meant to be.. But I'll sleep on it

LB we were posting at the same time!  I'm glad you're going to sleep on it. Agreed darn to the steps. Could this be a possible solution .... I've seen advertised (and I'm going to look for it to post the link) a gadget that you put groceries etc (water cases of water) in and pull it up steps. It has different wheels, not round smooth, and it's intended specifically for getting things up steps. It has a deep wire basket to put items in. That would get your items up the steps and help your knees a bit. I'll look for it now. Have you seen or heard of it?

Another busy day at my end. Plumber day for a new install then some outside work before it gets too hot. (Love this weather!) Then inside to get 'stuff' done.

Arkansas was in the news this morning and that made me think of our Kato. Sure do miss her. I hope all's good and wish she'd pop in to say Hi.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day.  :)

Paulie...I finally got into the nursery....bought my basil, parsley, geraniums and begonias.  It's a start!!  AND my hummers are coming to feed all day up until about 7p!!!!

Peeps....I used to have a beautiful avocado plant years ago, started by the avocado "nut."  I kept it indoors by a window and it grew beautifully.  However I also had a cat who thought it would make a lovely (additional) cat litter box...You can guess the rest!!!!

Paulie, those aren't mine, but I have done it before. To make them bush out you have to cut them back and I could never get myself to do it!  ;) :)

You plant them in an indoor planter with potting soil.

Oops! Sorry Peep, I just assumed. Yours must have been really pretty and full by not cutting them back. I doubt I could cut them back either.  :) Thanks about indoor planter with potting soil. I think I'll pass on this one. Too many other things to do!

Good Morning  :)

Another beautiful sunny warm day. Definitely a get outside things done in the morning before afternoon heat type of day. Yesterday was 88. Today to be 89. Not complaining! No problem getting exercise keeping everything watered including all the birdbaths.

Grackles are SO noisy and annoying! And they hog up all the suet feeders, hanging seed feeders and ground seed. It happens every year about this time. They stay around for about 2 long weeks. I'm ready for them to leave!  ;)

LB, I hope all's good with you and Copper. TGIF for you.

You've done your best looking at places. If you end up signing a lease again at your current place you and Copper are already settled in.

Suppose to go up to high eighties today....then mid sixties tomorrow!  Put the A/C on for today.

Thinking I'll wait till tomorrow to do more planting.  Still need to get a few tomato plants.

LB...sorry you're having difficulty with the shots.  I KNOW how painful it is to walk with bad knees. 

Have a good day all!!

Title: Re: Cheers 2021

Hi to everyone  :)

LB, Sorry about the hard walking. After a few weeks after this shot don't you get another one? I think you said something about getting another shot sometime and you were going to ask your doctor about it or something? I hope that makes sense.

jicaji, Don't you just love A/C! Mine's on too. 89 here and feels like 91. I don't plant in the hot sun either. I wait until evening and shade is on the planting area. Mmmm tomato plants! Need rain here. How about you?

I remember the days when growing up all we had was a big window fan my dad put in the main upper window on the second floor at the top of the staircase. He'd adjust it to pull out warm air and pull in cool in the evenings and we'd open a few other windows a few inches from the bottom to pull in the cool air. It felt so good. He'd turn off the fan when he went to bed though so the motor wouldn't overheat. I'd wake up hot then go into the hall and turn it back on. Awww felt good. Then dad would wake up and turn it off again. LOL

Many a night when we were little my parents would take us kids in our pajamas for a car ride with the windows down to cool us off. And sometimes we'd all get something cool to drink or an ice cream cone from a place you'd pull up to and girls would come out to the car to take the order and bring it out on metal trays that hooked onto the bottom of the window. Car hops I think they were called. Those honestly were the good 'ol days! 

Does anyone remember them?  ;D

We still go to them! There is a drive-in burger place in northern MN with car hops.

Hi Tig, That's awesome. You're lucky. Sounds like fun! Oh yes to the sheets on floor too. I forgot about that! Your screened porch sounds like fun and cooler. Good memories for you.

I did that with my children when they were little during hot afternoons but we had A/C by then. Lol Come inside from the hot then play on a cool sheet and have a cold popsicle. Then sometimes pillows and naps.  :) I'd do that all over again in a heartbeat.

Hi LB, Oh! Okay you just had your third shot. Your looking into when you can get a steroid shot is being proactive. It also says how much pain you feel. Let's hope that you begin feeling relief in another week. Yes fingers crossed for you! Good to continue using your lotion too. You're doing all you can for sure.

I began the celery growing process from cutting of the bottom from a store bought stalk then inserted the toothpicks and submerged bottom into bowl of water. We shall see what happens.  :)

LB....Yes, I do walk wobbly.  Depends on how long I have to walk.  Thankfully, when I do food shopping I have the shopping cart, which helps!!!  I'm looking into getting a second opinion, since my Ortho won't give any more cortisone shots and just told me to see a pain management Dr.   I just feel like he's telling me (without so many words) my only option is a full knee replacement  We'll see.

Paulie....Yes, I do love A/C, when I need it.  As a kid, I remember this big enclosed fan like thing which was called an air cooler.  My father used to put ice cubes into it and it blew out cold air.......THAT'S how old I am!!!!  Then after awhile, we got a few window A/C's for our bedrooms.

More Planting tomorrow.

Hi!  :)

The past two days have been busy and frustrating. Tuesday hubby and I both woke up with a weird "feeling out of sorts" grouchy moods and we didn't know why. That's #1

We eventually discovered a clogged backed up sink on lower level of house but was draining out on its own. Good. Then next time I checked it had overflowed and water everywhere including floor. All rugs wet so I got old towels and laid them everywhere. My regular plumber was booked so someone else would come later in day. By 7PM no plumber and sink drained itself. So I rescheduled for my regular plumber we trust for the next day/Wed. What a yucky mess. I washed all the rugs .. then all the towels .. and cleaned and sanitized the sink, countertop and floor. That's #2

Literally, and I mean literally, the minute I finished that cleaning up my bank notified me via text message that my bank card had been compromised and three withdrawals had been made from account. Was it me or husband? NO! That was #3 for the day.

I told my husband okay we had our 3 things happen so we were done! For heavens sake what a Tuesday!

So yesterday Wednesday at 8AM the guys I had scheduled to replace my clothes dryer hose and vent arrived and did that.
After they left the plumber arrived and fixed the clog. Took a long time but got fixed.
Then dealt with bank to be sure my bank card was closed then I had to file a dispute to try to get my money back. It might take a while but should get money back in time. Hope so!

I'm hoping for a calm uneventful day today!  ;D I tried to condense this story but yep! you know me. I don't know how to do that. lol  ;)

Hi Tig, Awww thanks for the hug. I love hugs! How is life treating you and Camper? Good I hope.

Hi jicaji, Thank you and yes today was better! On my gosh I got a lot done outside today. You got some beautiful plants! I love each of them. I can tell you're enjoying yourself!  :) Good! Have you had any more tea parties with Violet?

Hi LB, Thank you and yes it did. You picked really great quotes today.

All 3 quotes for me.

Okay today was another busy day but a good one. I finally caved and scheduled a landscaper to lay mulch literally everywhere, front, both sides and large backyard. I've gotten tons of outside work done since early Spring (actually before because of early nice weather so took advantage of it) but that being said I knew everything needing old mulch removed and new put down was way too much for me this year. Bummer. My husband helps me when he can but due to health reasons he is limited.

Today was like planning to have someone clean the house. I've never had a house cleaner but know some that do and they tidy up etc before their cleaning team arrives. Well that was me today outside. Did lots of trimming, weed pulling and mowed. Now just come and lay the mulch! lol  Anyway, they come early tomorrow morning and I'm looking forward to someone else doing this work.  ;D

I'm tired, showered and feeling good looking forward to tomorrow. Rain is in forecast by noon so I'm crossing my fingers and knocking on wood three times.  ;)

Take care each of you and I wish you a pleasant night.  :)

Hi jicaji, The little plant sounds interesting! Is there a tag in the soil with it's name? Face time works.  :) No word on bank card yet. I'm still waiting for something in the mail to file a dispute to get money refunded. I did find out the 3 illegal uses were to get $50 Visa cards with activation charges for each. Creeps.

Just thought I'd  pop in from Beakroom.
And wish all of you a blessed Memorial Day.

On a personal note: Just wanted to say to all our Cheers vets and their families. Today my heart is heavy and my eyes are full. If not for you, my father,  brothers , uncles, aunts and cousins; those before you  through out this country's history.  The world would be much different. And freedom an unknown  word.
 God bless you and keep you. The Father will always have  your six!



Memorial Day Blessings...

Hi jicaji, You are 100% correct to having a great time. My son and dil are here all week. My other 3 children have stopped by to visit them and us each on different days so far so it's been slow and pleasant. This Sunday will be the cook out with everyone here all together, kids and spouses, grandkids, hubby and me. It's supposed to be nice weather too. I'm happy happy happy.  ;D

Hi Phyl, Oh boy cleaning day. Nice that Jim has off today too! I'm laughing because I do the same thing putting my husband to work doing some things and especially doing some errands. That's a big help, right?!

I love the photos you post. I love yesterday's. Very cool. Today's is cute. Love the guys hair. lol

I believe Monday June 14th is Flag Day.
In view of that I thought I'd share the following with you.

We have an all weather flag  or Worry-Free flag kit from Gettysburg Flag Works. Which makes flag display and etiquette easier .
And, participate in the Stars for Our Troups program:
https://www.gettysburgflag.com/american-flag-retirement

The Stars for our Troops program takes your old, tattered and worn out American Flags and turns them into a prized possession for an American Soldier at home, on base or overseas. Volunteers lovingly cut each embroidered star from the flag, dispose of the stripes properly, and place each star into a tiny plastic bag with a card.

The card reads:

"I am part of our American flag that has flown over the U.S.A. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten"

The program does not accept printed flags, only embroidered, and the flags must be Made in the USA.

If you'd like to contribute your retired flag to the Stars for Our Troops program, please send your flag to the following address:

Stars for Our Troops, Inc.
2 116th St, Box 301
Troy, NY 12182-0301

The program always sends two stars back to the donor.  In total I've recieved 6 stars and have given two to Dan, one for himself and  as he has dad's ashes and I asked to put one in dad's urn. One to bro Larry and the others to vets I know.

Initially I posted below in February, repeated again in March.  I posted in Decorah Forum 2021/live stream/Lounge 2021.  Not allowed to give contact info in chat, as we all know.  And for those not familiar, I only cover the choices for lodging.  I make contracts for our AFT followers in the fall for the following July.  Each property does give us deadlines.   Thus far, for 2021, I've had to surrender rooms left at the Winneshiek Hotel and Marriott Fairfield; there might still be rooms, their prices are now not specified or guaranteed.  For fans of Country Suites, as of last fall 2020 all rooms were already reserved during our event by others.

Still on hold are Quality Suites (thru June 15) and Super8 (thru July 3) or while supply lasts.  Original post follows:

Hello all. . .

Originally posted in March, because we are getting closer, because of growing excitement, because of the addition of 3 new little ones, and because I will soon have to return all rooms on hold but not reserved under contract, I am reposting the following information.  If you want to make a reservation or have any questions, now would be time to contact me.   

                                                AFTER THE FLEDGE 2021

We are back!  Our main activities for the year are scheduled for the weekend days of Thursday, July 15 through Sunday, July 18.  Particulars on the offerings and plans will no doubt be forthcoming. I've put out feelers to organizers in order to answer your questions; we all await their responses.

Room arrangements this year are a bit different.  Three other large events are also on the Decorah area calendar.  BTW For anyone interested and know about the group, Seed Savers has something on the books.  Contact them if you are a novice or serious about growing gardens and plants.

As always, prices are per night, room taxes vary and are not included.  I will require your usual data for holding a room for you:  name as on credit card, address of cc, cc number and expiration, and the room and dates you are requesting.  Cancellation is permitted.  Each property has cancellation conditions and that varies.  No charges are made to your credit card until checkout - unless you forget to cancel. 

Here are the offerings we have to choose from this year:

Fairfield Marriott         King Bed Suites only, some with
                     pull out sofa bed
                  Thursday and Friday, $159
                  Saturday, $179

Quality Inn & Suites         2 Queen Beds only
                  Thurs, Fri, and Sat, $155

Super 8            First floor room requested
                  2 Doubles or 1 Queen
                  Thurs, Fri, and Sat, $129
   
Hotel Winneshiek         Exec with 2 Queen
                      $139 Thurs, $169 Fri/Sat
                  King Suite
                      $209 Thurs, $249 Fri/Sat
                  King Whirlpool
                     $139 Thurs, $169 Fri/Sat

Prices listed are available to us through me.  Please contact me with any questions or reservations.

Puff/LaNora            630-852-2108         [email protected]

 

I thought I'd share this here in case any Cherrios are intereseted.

Hi!  ;D

Dinner then have  a 30 minute drive each way to a family members house to water plants and check for package deliveries at front door while on vacation. I'm just saying this now because I'm expecting a phone call about granddaughter's upcoming birthday so if I have to answer phone before I get to post. If so I'll be back.

Hi jicaji, Thank you for delivering my Hi to everyone in Cheers. And to reply to your earlier post yes!! we/family all had a great time all last week thru the weekend. The family cookout this past Sunday was a blast!!

Hi LB, June 3 you said you have too much on your mind and today you said you're not sleeping well. I hope whatever is on your mind will resolve itself soon. You deserve some calm days and good sleep. I hope you've enjoyed having today off work and tomorrow too! and this weekend. Sounds like cutie Copper is sticking to his wake up routine! I'm sure he's happy having his mom home with him.  :)

LB and jicaji, You both said you can't for winter??!! Noooooooo!!  ;)

Hi Phyl, I love your photos. I especially like this mornings. I am going to look at your Nature links when I can. They are always calming and pretty. Thanks for the eclipse info. How's Miss Maggie?

Hi Peep

Has anyone heard from Baz?? I hope she's doing well.

Like I said earlier last week and weekend was awesome. My son and dil returned to NC Monday. They are hoping to return for another visit July 4th weekend. Yesterday/Wed was one of my daughter's birthday. I'm now helping get party supplies and shop for one of my granddaughter's birthday June 15. Then my husband's birthday is June 16 then June 18 is birthday for my other son who lives locally. Yep busy plus regular stuff inside and outside house. I'll be going daily to family members house to check on mail and water plants.

Hubby just said dinner is done. He made sloppy joes. Mmmm Going to eat then off to the errand I mentioned earlier.

I wish everyone a pleasant evening. See you later taters  :)

Sure,  we can share our BB happinings.  ;)
Maggie is doing fine.
Phyl, Okay and good to your pm'ing baz. I pm'd her a while back. I had hoped she would be posting again. Just so all's good with her and family.

Thank you about last weekend.
Good about Maggie.

I didn't realize your BBs were year long residents. And wow since 2003! Very cool. Mine arrive in November and stay thru late Spring. That's when lots of additional birds start flocking my yard and feeders so I'm thinking that added activity drives them away. They've become compatible with the Sparrows (lots of them and pests sometimes) and Cat Birds and Robins too but once the European Starlings (loud noisy nesciences I say) arrive the BBs stay away. Darn it.

I like today's Nature 365. I love thunder storms.

LOL to your morning photos!

Good Morning nope copper woke up at 530 but I went back to sleep after letting him out slept to 800.  Paulie you can add my birthday to that lsit of June Birthdays LOL  It's tomorrow  LOL JUst another day here.   Glad you had good time with family.  I was thinking of BAz as well.   Not sure if anyone believes in Mediums My ssister saw one the other day Nad my mom came through.  pretty freaky!! I am open to it and some of the things that she said I am more open    I want to see one!!!
LB, Awesome tomorrow is your birthday! I've added you to the list.  :)

I was with you waking up at 5:30 this morning! I couldn't get back to sleep for a while though and didn't sleep much after that.

Interesting about your sister and her experience and it definitely sounds like your interest has peaked. I used to watch Long Island Medium when it was on TV and one of my daughter's got tickets for her and I to attend one of her shows years ago when she was in our area. The place was huge and packed full. All seats sold out. That was an interesting experience for sure.

Hi Phyl,   :) I bet you are kinda feeling it today. Nope I didn't get my nap yesterday. I tried but couldn't sleep. Too much planning and things going on for upcoming week's three birthdays. Whew. Not complaining though.

Your cake for LB looks delicious!

Your Caturday photos are adorable!

I just got back from food shopping for a family member's birthday meal here tomorrow. Got a load of laundry done. Now I'm heading out to mow lawn. Blah. I sometimes enjoy it but not today. Too many other things to do.

I'll definitely watch the new Nature videos later. I hope you get your nap today!  ;)

Never heard of cauliflower pizza...what's on it?
Still, LB hope you had a nice day.

Good Morning. Oh Phyliz Caulliflower pizza is the cruat is made out of cauliflower. instead of regular flour.  It's an healier alternative.  YOu can get it in any grocery store in frozen section.   the topping is normal sause cheese sauge pepperoni or vegetables.  some brands are better than others.  I didnt care for trader joes brand  here is link to one brand  https://www.miltonscraftbakers.com/cauliflower-crust-pizza-vegetable Not sure whats with copper. I rescued him about 6 ears ago and he had defensice issues hes on prozac It took him 2 years to trust me.  He would lunge all the time I almost got rid of him but I felt bad.  I think he was abused previously he shows signs he doesnt like other dogs and is very defensive.  He doesnt trust anyone but me which gets very frustrating but dont want to get rid of him not many people will have the patience with him.   sigh.......

Good Afternoon!  :)

Geez I slept in this morning later than usual. Good though because yesterday wore me out. I've been up for a while but busy getting reading for today's birthday meal. Have pie crusts done and some cleaning done but still have to prep ingredients for filled/stuffed peppers (making 15) and sauerkraut (my husbands cans and is delicious) and mashed potatoes. My daughter asked for chocolate pie so have to make that filling yet. Making 2.

Phyl, Jim talked you into staying up late again. LOL Pizza is good any time I think. Darn no nap for you either. Will watch Nature vids again later. No time now but I will! What's for breakfast? Lol Haven't a clue. No time for that earlier either. I hope you ate something.

LB, Your cauliflower pizza sounds good and healthy. I've heard about cauliflower mashed potatoes but haven't tried them.
I remember when you got Copper and his trust issues and the time you had. You were soooo patient and loving with him and you still are. He's lucky to have you.  :)

Well gotta go. Lot's to do. See ya'll later. Wishing you a pleasant day. Take care.

You've done a wonderful thing with him. He's probably as good as he'll ever be right now. But, you're his hero and he does love you.

The pizza sounds great and a novel idea for the crust. Gonna check out the web site, too. Tks.

 For the later I always just pop the cap of Redi Whip.      B  'sides Maggie loves a rosette of it in a saucer.
Sleeping in when one has lots to do can make for a rushed day.  >:(     But odds are you really needed the sleep.

I always eat sometling in the mornings. And, skip lunch as a habit from Lent many, many years ago.  And, just kept it as an ongoing sacrifice.

I hope your meal is a success and day go well. And, everyone is happy and has lots of fun.

The 5th egg wasn't viable.
And, two of the later fledglings didn't survive once out of the nest. Not sure what happened to them.

Taken this past weekend


Jim reports a new nest is full with four (4) blue eggs. He took a photo but didn't come out well. Will retake.
You recall we had 5 eggs just this last nest. With the 5th not viable. And, that while four fledged only two returned from 'flight school' and 'survival training'. But, since I never actually saw them fledge, which I usually do see. And, in view that Jim no longer uses the pad lock on the nesting boxes. I'm wondering if someone reached in and took two for some perverted reason. 
Because of t his, I can't actually be sure #35 and 36 are who I think they are. They could be #37 and 38; 35 and 37; 36 and 38 ;38 and 35 or 36 and 37. 
Alas, i'm not gonna fret over it.

Post by: Phyl on June 14, 2021, 01:18:14 AM
Paulie with this post you should be up todate on our bluebird happenings for this season so far.
Jim will recheck as the egglets are due to hatch  or have begun to hatch.

this was first published about Monday of last week.



Bluebird Report, Cane Ridge-Old Hickory Hills, Tennessee

Late getting this out.
But, as usual, we have a second clutch of eggs. As you can see, we have five lovely blue eggs that promise to
bring us CR #'s 39, 40, 41, 42 and 43. We can only hope all five will survive. We estimate the first egg to hatch about
the 12th or 13th and then, hopefully,  one each day there after.
Sure wish Jim would put the pad lock back on the nesting box.

(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/37/49/3d/37493d5ac665cf3fbccc1706ff142cde.jpg)

And, a photo update on the two surviving hatchlings from our  May clutch. CR #35 and 36.
Our two 2021 teenagers are self-feeding the meal worms (dried) from the windowed feeder box. And on rare occasion, visiting the squirrel feeder housing the shelled  peanut halves. They fly off with them or even more rare, take them to the deck rail and bust them up.  I think this is more  a copycat thing with the teenage Mockingbirds when, that pair raid the feeder. LOL
Look very closely and see the famous blue spreading up the tail and back. Their breasts are still white and when that turns to the reddish orange, the vividness of that and the wing blue  will tell us the gender. I hoping for a female at least.

NATIONAL FLAG DAY

On June 14th, National Flag Day honors Old Glory and commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777.

The holiday is a day that Americans show respect for the U.S. Flag and what it represents. Representing independence and unity, the Star-Spangled Banner has become a powerful symbol of Americanism and the flag is flown proudly.

While Betsy Ross has been given credit for stitching together the first American flag, there isn’t any sound evidence supporting the story. At the same time, there isn’t any to disprove it, either. Part of the conflict is there were several designs in consideration at the same time. There were many flag makers and more than one claim to the first. During Ross’s Revolutionary time, several standards were carried bearing red and white stripes and varying symbols where the blue field and stars now reside.

Another who laid claim to the first design was Francis Hopkinson. His request for compensation for his design was denied because others contributed to the design final design.

Since 1777, the design of the flag has been officially modified 26 times. For 47 years, the 48-star flag was in effect. In 1959, the 49-star version became official on July 4. President Eisenhower ordered the 50-star flag on August 21, 1959.

Seventeen-year-old Robert G. Heft of Ohio designed the 50-star American flag. His was one of the more than 1,500 designs that were submitted to President Dwight D. Eisenhower.


HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalFlagDay
Many people have died protecting our country. On National Flag Day, raise the flag and fly it proudly. Spend time learning more about U.S. flag history, too. Use #NationalFlagDay to post on social media.

NATIONAL FLAG DAY HISTORY
On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation deeming June 14th as Flag Day. President Wilson stated, “It is the anniversary of the day upon which the flag of the United States was adopted by the Congress as the emblem of the Union.” He also wrote, “On that day rededicate ourselves to the nation, ‘one and inseparable’ from which every thought that is not worthy of our fathers’ first vows in independence, liberty, and right shall be excluded and in which we shall stand with united hearts.”

I always eat sometling in the mornings. And, skip lunch as a habit from Lent many, many years ago.  And, just kept it as an ongoing sacrifice.

I hope your meal is a success and day go well. And, everyone is happy and has lots of fun.
Hi Phyl, I was all in too. Lol Some like Redi Whip and others Cool Whip so I got both. Aww about Maggie.

Very true about sleeping in makes for a rushed day.  >:(

Very good that you eat something in the morning. That's supposed to be healthy and is honestly. Your habit of skipping lunch from many years ago from Lent is comendable and I applaud you.

Yes the meal was a success, thank you, and everyone had a great time so great it was a very late night! Then once the house was quiet and Zzzz time happening my phone rang at 1:30AM. It was a Code Red alert for an approaching storm and holy was it a storm!
Strong winds, downpouring rain, hail, thunder, lightening. At one point while I was looking out a window I remembered your Nature Video the other day!! Well I got "my fix" of storms early this morning.  ;D

Sad part is one of my Rose of Sharon trees was blown over.  >:(

Thanks for the BB photos. Wow you've got BBs 35 and 36! Well I guess so if I remember correctly starting in 2003? Sad about the juvies that didn't make it this year but you/they have had great success. Beautiful BB eggs and photos Jim took. If all successful hatches you're up to 43!!

I like your Good Morning purple door. Ironically I'm thinking of getting my front door painted maroon to match the window shutters. 
Maybe I've made my decision.  :)

Hey Phylyz You are full of informtion today.    LOL  Happy Flag day!!! Your birds are pretty.  I now have about 6 blue jas along with my squirrels looking for peanuts daily.  A couple of crows come by as well.  I have cardinals and finches as well the squirrels stels their foods if I dont put out peanuts!!!
Hi LB, Cool about your BJ's. They love peanuts. So do crows, squirrels but I didn't know about finches!
You've got a lot of activity in your yard! I think nature has put a big X on your house so they all know where to go!  ;D Do squirrels still greet you on your morning walks for peanuts?

LB Howdy. Inspiration #3
Lots of wildlife on  your end.
 We've been feeding our meniagerie since 2003 .  it started with some suet cakes and seed  on a baffle pole. Now we have nesting boxes and peanut feeder, more seed dispensers.
In addition to all that, we have cardinals, titmice, house wrens, gold finches, crows, cowbirds, greckles, robins, purple finches, indigo buntings, tree swallows, starlings and our statebird, mockingbird.  Plus some hummingbird straggleers.
Rabbits, chipmunks, r'coons  >:(
Nowe that we feed shelled halved peanuts to our squirrels/ chipmunks and Jays. The mockiong birds, greckles, cardinals, mockingbirds, BBs, titmice.
you're right if there aren't peanuts. The squirrels will eat the bird seed.
What does copper do with all the activity?

Hope you got some sleep ths time.

I am so very sorry for your loss and the passing of your beloved  'Willie Boy'. Cats are such a  very special goft from God to us.
Their love tansends time and space.

Here's a wonderful poem I always share at times like this. I hope it blesses you as it has me and  many others during such times.
Love and purrs
Phyllis and Maggie

A Prayer by Father Bede Jarrett, OP (1881–1934) —

We seem to give them back to Thee, O God; who gavest them to us. Yet, as Thou didst not lose them in giving, so do we not lose them by their return. Not as the world giveth givest Thou, O Lover of Souls. What Thou givest, Thou takest not away, for what is Thine is ours also if we are Thine.

And life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only an horizon, and an horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly; draw us closer to Thyself that we may know ourselves to be nearer to our loved ones who are with Thee.

And while Thou dost prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place where Thou art we may be also for evermore.

Phyl, Not many leftovers. Yes sent some home with my daughter who the birthday meal was for and put some aside for my other daughter who missed the meal because of traveling back from her vacation. What a horror story that was with delays from Orlando due to the storms. She, her young daughter and husband made it home safely after fighting to get onto another flight in Charlotte after many hours delayed arrival. Success getting home though.

No the Rose of Sharon tree is a loss. It's been here many years too. Darn it!
Oh! I forgot about the front door! Too many birthdays this week. I'll write myself a reminder. Thanks!

I'll be posting late again tomorrow night. Tomorrow is my husband's birthday and we are driving to land we have in the mountains of Western PA. We'll leave early and return hopefully not late in time for our local children to visit him as they've told us they want to.  :)
He and I are soooo looking forward to the long drive and quiet and solitude of the mountain. It's much needed.  ;)

Hi Tig, It's nice seeing you.

Take care each of you. Keep my stool ready for tomorrow evening and I'll be here. I look forward to sharing Cheers time with you.

LB so happy you enjoyed the bird vids they were great. Hope you day was good and Copper was a 'good boy'
jicaji happy to see you here, miss you Glad you enjoyed last night's picture .
Paulie Hi there!


What an afternoon...not that good.
Jim went out after lunch to run a cople of errands and p/u a movie from Redbox. His last stop was Starbuck's for some of those yummie breakfast sands I give him on Saturday mornings.
Well he went out to his care, '02 Pont Grand AM and the girl wjouldn't start.  Just made that sound the starter makes when it won't work.
WEll he called me to come fetch him and the food (Maggies, too) I had just stepped into the shower and turned the water on. Thankful I had alrady washed my hair the day before and my face was on, too. I told him he'd have to let me dry off and put my dirty clothes bacxk on and grab my purse and I'd be off. Got to Starbucks accross from Kroger and down from Publix. He called a two and a 30 -45 min wait. So I told him let's go inside and sit and  I'd wait with him.  I had my bottom undies on ..not my top. So there I was jiggling as I walked. Oh what the hey! In this day and age, no one really cares.
To make it short the two guy got there and hoisted the gal up on the ramp. Took Jim's keys and the note attached to them and said he could go home...he's leave the Pont on the gated lot and drop he keys in the lock box. Told Jim it was good he left Freeland chev a message on the phone.  Sooooo. now he drive my Little Kia Forte that just a year old to and from work for thenext weel. I told Jim he best be careful with my baby and not let harm come to him.  >:(
My entiere afternoon was kaput and none of my tasks will be completed so I an reseach for my novel much less work on any  chapters. 'Cuz I have to do all that other tomorrow instead.  >:(
Hope eveyone had a better day.
The bill will be over $1500 I'm sure.
No time to grill burgers so made spaghetti e/ meatballs,  and traditional sauce, romaine /baby spinach salad w/ red wine.


Sleep well everyone and lots of SEDs.

Paulie sounds like a nice drive. Safe journey.  The mountians are a wonderful place for mental/spiritual 'healing'.
Too bad about the 'rose of sharon' tree. Are you going to get a y oung tree or one that has some growth?
Paulie hope all is well and you;re just busy.
Hi Phyl, Thank you and I agree the mountains are a wonderful place for mental/spiritual healing.

It was sooo relaxing and when we visited the local town by our land we shopped some stores and just relaxed. My husband always calls our getaways, "Road Trip" then I say "We're getting out of Dodge." lol

I love your June 17 3pm photo. Soooo relaxing.
Thank you for my husband's cake and birthday wishes. I showed him. He said thank you too.

Awesome you found your mother's muffins recipe and you're making them for your father for Father's Day!! That's so special. He's going to love them!

I had to leave my reading and posting earlier because one of my children called. I came back to explain I'll explain the circumstances of our return drive home this past Wed tomorrow. We're okay and things are being taken care of.

I'm beat. Long week and this morning I woke up at 4:03am and couldn't get back to sleep. Too much on my mind and going on. I've had a full day and night.

Phyl, I got to read some of your tonight's post before my daughter called but . You had me laughing at the beginning about you after shower and your clothing but then I had to stop. I will finish tomorrow.

I hope what I just said above makes sense. I didn't want to just stop posting without explanation.

Night all. Sleep well. I think I will. I better!  ;) Take care.

I'm sure Jim knows to take extra care of your Kia.
Your dinner sounds good. I hope you had some extra wine.  ;)

Okay. Long story short I hope.
Wednesday we had a pleasant drive to mountain and a great time while there. Driving home an extra long tractor trailer swiped the front and left side of our Jeep. We were stopped to make a right turn in a small cozy town. In fact the road we were turning onto is named Small Road.

We had begun turning right then stopped when we saw the tractor trailer knowing he wasn't to be there. When we saw him continue to make his left turn in front of us we couldn't back up because of traffic behind us. We watched as if in slow motion the truck come closer and closer and then this huge truck right in front of our eyes at front of hood. Yep .... a bump and crumbling noise. We were stunned. We were and are okay.

My husband was livid because the Jeep Rubicon is his baby. I spoke with truck driver (or I attempted to) but he refused to speak or give insurance info. He then began taking pictures of Jeep. So I started taking picture of him!! and the Jeep. He then returned to truck to drive away! Oh no you don't buddie!!

A local lady who saw the incident saw this and ran to truck telling driver she'd already called State Police so does he want hit and run filed?! In the meantime I was taking pictures of his license plate and all numbers and markings on the tractor trailer. Another local man was speaking to my husband explaining there's an accident frequently at this T intersection.

After an almost 2 hour wait for police to arrive the State Trooper literally chewed out the truck drivers a**. After statements from other driver and us, the truck driver was found at fault. The side hood latch on Jeep hood was broken off and front of Jeep hit but was drivable so we were able to complete the add'l hour and a half drive home.

Thurs and Fri was dealing with our auto insurance co. and lining up repair shop and rental vehicle plus routine daily things.

Also Friday was one our son's birthday. Oh yeah! It was still the long multiple family birthday week.
Bottom line all is okay today with family coming here for Father's Day and my daughter's are bringing all the food. No cooking for me. Yay!  ;D 

Well I tried to keep this short but didn't.  ;)

Hi  :)

jicaji, LB, Phyl, Tig, Thank you each for your kind comments about the vehicular incident.

The trucking company saga continued this morning. A guy called my husband saying, "You were in an incident with one of my truck drivers.
What's the damage and cost? Tell me about it."

My husband said "Call my car insurance co. The number is on the police report your driver was given or call the State Police. Then hung up.
Then the guy called my phone. I didn't answer. Nope!

The police report that was given to the truck driver and us clearly states the tractor trailer driver is at fault and charged.

Post by: paulie on June 21, 2021, 03:11:49 PM
jicaji, Yes ma'am. Thanks. I wasn't about to do that. Trucking firm is from out of state and still acting shady. Let our car ins. co. deal with them.

Actually our insurance company gave us two options.
1. We pay our deductible then our insurance co goes after trucking firm insurance for our deductible and balance my insurance pays. Or
2. We get repair estimate and pay for repairs ourselves then we go after trucking firm for reimbursement ... leaving our insurance co out of it and they would get no updates from trucking firm. What the??!!

I said we've been with our insurance co for 33 years and why in the world would we take Option 2. Sounds ridiculous to me!!
Two years ago when someone backed into my SUV and they found at fault of course I didn't have to pay deductible so why now? Reply was rules have changed. Whatever ......

Oh Tennessee today too! Did your area get the nasty storms that rolled through yesterday or the day before? 
True don't need high winds.

Oh! I've been meaning to tell you. Remember the Rose of Sharon tree from last high winds I thought was a gonner? The other evening I had my husband help me push/pull it upright. It was leaning way over onto another Rose of Sharon beside it. Tall trees. I planted them years ago. Well I was able to tie it up, wrapping special stuff that won't harm tree trunks, plants etc. I noticed some of the stump was still connected to earth and leaves remaining green. I've been meaning to put a bag of top soil around the base but no time yet (or I just haven't taken the time yet.) Anyway fingers crossed if storms roll through again today.

Good luck at your home with storms. Stay safe.

What's happening with Jim's car?

Geez sounds like you were getting hit with a storm. Did you? If so I hope all's okay. Give an update then. I haven't watched the evening news yet.

It got dark here then some light rain and that was it. The storm predicted for this evening or tonight broke apart as it came over the western mountains so some went north and some south of here. Not a drop of rain and it's needed. Supposedly tomorrow a cold front comes through and a rainy day. Time will tell. There is a haze around the moon and that's supposed to mean rain.

Mmmmm your onion, cucumber and tomato salad sounds deeelicious! What kind of dressing do you make for it?

Thanks about the trucking company.

I figured the bad weather would head your way. Maybe since it broke up my way it won't make it to you but maybe the storm that went south might. Cozy in inside and give an update tomorrow.

Funny thing.....We have many chipmunks who visit our deck.  Lately, I've seen a little bird actually chase one of the chipmunks off the deck!!!  First time in all these years I've seen that!!!  He/she just swoops down and "yells" at the chipmunk and the chipmunk just runs off. 

LB, so glad your father was surprised and happy with your muffins! The onion, cucumber and tomato salad sounds yummy.

Hi Cheerios...

Everything's soaked   ;D
Temps in upper 80's and air very cool so I put on old ratty clothes and killed some weeks and butchered my roses. The back look better and the front will when the weed die

Today's adventures. Today we got repair authorization for Jeep repairs from insurance company. Auto body shop said probably supplemental repairs authorization might be needed. Insurance company said will comply if so. I hope so.

Went to get hubby's rental vehicle. Was told due to rental car shortage the vehicle we'd chosen online was not available. Options available were a sporty Dodge Challenger very low to ground and fast the guy said and "You'll have fun! or a small low to ground subcompact Chevy Spark. We're not used to either. Lol Whatever. Chose Chevy Spark because we need an extra vehicle because my SUV goes for state inspection and AC repairs this Thursday so need other transportation. Hubby hates it and I have no desire to drive or ride in it. I'm so tired I'm laughing right now.

This evening I mowed lawn after rain and thankfully dry because it needed mowed. Hubby can't due to health. No problem. I enjoy mowing (usually) and was my time out just mowing and being outside.  :)

Afterwards I showered to relax and went to fridge for ice for a relaxing beverage. Yep had alcohol in it.  ;D Both the fridge and freezer lights were out. Checked the fuse box (although no fuses in it any more. Forget the correct term.) All was okay. I've had concerns lately maybe something was wrong because ice maker was wonky and side of fridge felt warm. Calling for repair was on my to do list. Well too late. Refrigerator/freezer caput. Thank heavens we have a deep freezer that I've purposely pretty much emptied out from pandemic stock piling. Jumped into action. Put fridge freezer stuff into deep freezer. We went about 10pm and got a bunch of bagged ice for items in fridge. Hope it keeps it cold but honestly right now if it does good. If not. It doesn't.

Will call our local home repair home improvement guy tomorrow and hopefully be able to get a new refrigerator/freezer that I'm hoping for because I've heard and read there is a shortage of availability due to pandemic.

I'm calling it a night and will see what tomorrow brings.  :P Whatever it is you best believe I'm going to deal with it!!  ;D (I'm really not smiling that big but it is what it is ... so will deal with it.

Night.  ;)

#1 paulie  I drive a Challenger.  Love It!  Now going on 12 years old.  Never had any work done on it (knock on wood).  Very similar to 1971 Charger I had.  Took that one to 150,000 miles; brother bought it from me and added miles to 280,000.

Same good history with garden - have had it since 1971.  The rabbits will not win, just have to reorganize/make a plan B.  I did make a big change in fencing, going to check what went wrong.  Daddy made me an oriental look wooden fence back in the 70's.  Red, black, and gold.  Handcrafted.  Alas the elements won the battle with the wood.  But that fence was ornamental; had two layers under it of coated welded wire and poly mesh.  My problem has to be in the two new layers.
Have always had critters; area was not very populated, didn't have homes on both sides of me for 10 years.  If you garden or plant you do feed the critters.  BUT. . .Oh well, my refrigerator is working, I didn't get hit by the tornado (yesterday they officially determined it was 3 and not just 2 and also some wind shear), no car troubles, dinner meeting tonight at Venuti's yum yum.  I will now declare an end to my whining.

about wiring a bypass to it altogether.  Otherwise, it's a specila order and $800. Complete repair won't be util sometime next week. Hoping he can persuade a bypass wiring.

Hi Puff, Sorry for my delayed reply. Been busy! Nice that you drive a Challenger. Cool car. Yes please knock on wood! It sounds in great shape. Oh my heavens your first Challenger had a ton of miles from both you and your brother!! Wow! What color is your current Challenger?

I was going to ask you to post a photo of the Oriental fence until I read on that the elements took it. Well I guess so since it was from the 70s. It sounds veeery pretty. Do you mean you no longer (haven't added) new wire and poly mesh to another fence?
I'm sure you enjoyed 10 years with no houses on either sides! Very true when you garden and plant you feed the critters. lol It's hard to hold back nature.

You had 3 tornados in your area! and wind shear. I'm glad you were spared. Is Venuti's an Italian restaurant? You're making me hungry whether it is or not.

Your post wasn't whining! No way. I enjoyed it. Now if you want to talk about some whining posts look at mine the past couple days.  ;)

Hi Paulie/jicaji
Hi Phyl, Sure is rotten when appliances poop out! Darn it that Jim couldn't get a pass for security system. The cost for a new system sucks. Oh geez now it's next week before it's ready. That's more time he has to drive your Kia.

My husband and I worked on the Rose of Sharon some more this evening. Braced it up by tying a cord around leaning branches to base of a lower cut off trunk then I put a bag of Miracle Grow Tree/Shrub soil around the base of different trunks (more than one) and I tamped it in good to help support the base. Tomorrow (I hope) I'm going to put concrete scalloped edger's around it and have another bag of regular top soil to put inside edger's to hopefully help support the base. "Rosie" has flower blooms on it so I told her I'm not giving up.  ;D

Hi LB, Thank you very much!! I hope so too!! My contractor guy I use for work  was here today and he said the same as you did about the wait for appliances. I have my fingers crossed I can get the refrigerator I chose. I'm waiting to hear back from him to be sure it will fit. If so I'll order it. Supposedly it would be delivered June 30 and I'm hoping that's correct but won't be surprised if not. Not having a refrigerator is not easy!

Post by: paulie on June 24, 2021, 09:41:03 PM
Before I close for the night here's an interesting Twilight Zone tid bit. Ironically sometimes the fridge turns on! We noticed this the day after it had stopped. Soooo we took out the initial bags of ice to try to save the food items we'd hoped to keep cold (which were already melting a bit and I had to use towels and lots of paper towels to soak up the water) anyway we got more frozen ice bags to replace the other ones when we discovered the fridge at some point turned on. Now the Twilight Zone part. When it's working so does an electrical outlet in the kitchen but when the fridge turns off I can't use the outlet further down the wall in the kitchen and an outlet in the dining room stops working. Weird right? We've checked the electrical box and nothing is tripped and the markings on the different breakers that have locations marked don't show an association of the outlets that go out when the fridge does. Sooooo I called my electrician guy and he'll be coming to check it out. I hope this makes sense because trust me right now I'm beyond frustrated.

The Jeep's repair parts are ordered and the body shop said should be in next week.

My car had it's state inspection today and passed. Yay! But A/C I asked to look at needed work done on it and I'm NOT happy with that repair bill.   >:(

On a pleasant note the Strawberry Full Moon tonight sure is pretty.  :) Maybe I'll go outside and howl at it or something. LOL   ;D

Life goes on paulie  Taking your forgiveness about whining -- let's call it venting instead of whining.   ::)

First thought when I read news on the fridge - Oh, no, not a good timing cuz of shortage.  City had a main transformer fire/ ergo outage once . Lasted almost week.  Panic does set in quickly.  All I kept thinking is people have it all wrong about a side-by-side not holding much. 

Garden followup:  Picking up ordered 3rd layer (wire) today; galvanized metal.  Now have rain forecasted for 3 days.   :-\  I'm going to look for pic of fence; it would be a sin if I never took a picture of it in all those  years.

Car followup:  '71 Charger and '09 Challenger both the same - all black, inside and out.  Also:  I once posted, will repeat- Challenger got me my only ticket ever.  And I do mean ever.  Returning from Decorah 2012, 7 a.m. Sunday in Iowa on Highway 18/51.  $178, would have been more if he had put my true speed.  ::)

Yes Puff life goes on. One day at a time I say. Okay about changing whining to venting. I'll so the same.  :)

Uh-oh. Sounds like you had your side-by-side full at the time of the outage!
I agree about not good timing due to shortage. It is what it is and still waiting to hear back from contractor about measurements.  ::)

Good about picking up 3rd layer wire today. Sounds strong! Oh geez rain in forecast. Murphy's Law.
Thanks about looking for fence pic. Sounds awesome.

Both your vehicles sound very cool. You had me laughing about your one ticket ever and true speed. You were moving girl! I'm laughing now. And your only ever ticket was when leaving Decorah!

Are you helping with this years After The Fledge accommodations again?

Hi Phyl, I agree venting is good whether in Cheers or Beak Room = Friends. I haven't visited Beak for a while being busy so I hope all is good there. Cheers and Beak = Friends I agree.
Thanks about my Rose of Sharon Tree. Yes lots of love given to help her survive. I call her Rose and talk to her when doing work to help her.  :) I completed the concrete edging around tree this evening and added an additional 40 lb top soil to base of the trunks. Since that wind storm "Rose" has new limb sprouts and flower buds so she's definitely trying to survive. I planted this tree and others at least 20 years ago. She and I are not quitters!!

Darn it about you having to settle for a different dish washer then the one you wanted became available afterwards recently!!  I hope you like the one that you got though.

About the sad robot. Hmmm sounds like the situation didn't work out. Your good night robot doesn't have an expression on it's face. I need a smiling and happy robot.  ;D

Hi Puff, I agree measurements are non-negotiable and new choices have grown. Your custom designed cherry wood cabinets sound very pretty. Very good you found a carpenter to alter your cabinets and good you got to keep them although altered. 

Same here with the height of refrigerator I chose and reaching the top of it! I'll be loosing all of my upper cabinets but I'm willing to do that to get the fridge I want. I understand your doctors giving you and Tony the kibosh on ladders. Same for my husband. I haven't been told that yet! (I'm chuckling) so I'll be the one cleaning the top of it.

Phyl has the perfect answer using an extension wand or who sees the top?  :) I'm sure we each want the top clean and it bugs us so the top will get cleaned some how.

I agree with you about the electric outlet having something wrong with it. Luckily I have an electrician coming this Monday for my yearly electric inspection and will definitely tell him about it. I'll let you know. Good suggestion.

I hope you didn't exercise. Your body needed to rest and even when we're resting we use up some calories. You need rest and sleep.  ;)

Contractor got back to me today saying the refrigerator I want will fit. He'll have to eliminate the floor molding and upper cabinets but that's okay because I want the fridge I chose. Delivery is to be July 1 so a few more days to go. Fingers crossed all goes well.

Good Morning everyone  No Paulie, I didnt exercise last night.  I am finishing my cup of coffee and will exercise in a few minutes  I gain 5lbs   :-[   A co worker and I will be doing starting  a liquid diet the week of the 5th . First week 2 protein shakes a day and 1 meal.  2nd week all liquid 3rd week (maybe 3rd week) back to 1 meal a day  My nutritionist and surgeons say it's ok to do a reset if I come to a stall. I have!!!!   so I am doing my prejury diet  and week after.   Hopefully this will get me back on track   Not that I am totallly off still eating healthy but night time snacks is where I have a hard tiime.   mY knees (more so left) is killing me big time. shot not working.  Is it worth going back to the doctor when I know I cant do a shot until August.  It hurts more today probably the heat and humidity so this week is going to be horrible.   I did walk copper his long walk so now I need to convince him his afternoon walk will need to be short which I am not sure why he wants to walk long cause he does look miserable walking in the heat

Good Morning Puff, Very true about memories and changes. Thank you about Rosie.  :) Very nice about your daddy's fence. It sounds beautiful. The trees you mentioned sound beautiful. They must be very tall and full now. Very touching story about you and your aspen driving in your firebird. She or he is your baby and cared for well I'm sure. You've had some cool cars!  :)

Did you pick up the 3rd layer of wire? And was the forecast correct? Raining there today?

Good Morning everyone  No Paulie, I didnt exercise last night.  I am finishing my cup of coffee and will exercise in a few minutes  I gain 5lbs   :-[   A co worker and I will be doing starting  a liquid diet the week of the 5th . First week 2 protein shakes a day and 1 meal.  2nd week all liquid 3rd week (maybe 3rd week) back to 1 meal a day  My nutritionist and surgeons say it's ok to do a reset if I come to a stall. I have!!!!   so I am doing my prejury diet  and week after.   Hopefully this will get me back on track   Not that I am totallly off still eating healthy but night time snacks is where I have a hard tiime.   mY knees (more so left) is killing me big time. shot not working.  Is it worth going back to the doctor when I know I cant do a shot until August.  It hurts more today probably the heat and humidity so this week is going to be horrible.   I did walk copper his long walk so now I need to convince him his afternoon walk will need to be short which I am not sure why he wants to walk long cause he does look miserable walking in the heat
Good Morning LB, Good about you not exercising last night. I'm sipping on another coffee now.  :) Nice that you and Copper got your long walk in this morning before it gets warmer. Good luck with your shorter afternoon walk. Apparently Copper likes his walks! Do you have shady areas where you walk?

The diet you and a co-worker will be doing sounds like you'll definitely get back on track. Don't fret too much about those 5 lbs. It happens. Very good that you got your nutritionist and surgeons approval. All sounds good.

Night time snacks!! Me too. I was doing good loosing what people call pandemic weight gain and I needed to loose only 5 lbs more (which are the hardest) then stress and frustration with life set in and yep I jammed in night snacks. lol I gained 3 lbs so I'm working at shedding them. You're not alone. Heck I'm sure neither of us are alone with ups and downs.

Sorry about your knees especially the left. Good question about should you return if you can't get next shot until August. True about heat and humidity affecting joints.

Good Morning also to Phyl and jicaji  :)

Well the heat, high dew points and humidity have returned here also. Forecast is 5 day stretch in the 90s. I still say it beats snow and ice!!
The ridiculously high temps on the west coast are terrible!!

Time to do laundry and other things so I'm wishing everyone a pleasant day.

Oh! I forgot the quotes. All 3 are good LB.

Paulie unfortunately robots in Clark's World aren't very happy.  They do have their moments of happiness and tha's usually when they interact w/humans and other life.
It's a furturistic world where humans and robots co-exist; the machine world is sympathic to humans and often help them in an Apocolyptic time on Earth.  I'll do better at selecting happier  'bots.
Nothing weird about 'talking' to plants. It's the CO2 that they like...we give it off and they convert to O2 for us. We both need the nuclelar light from the Sun. It's a  Win-win.
LB good luck on the diet 'reset'. Have  you ever considered or been advised to get knee braces? When active I wear one on each knee.  These are the only types that stay up on my legs when jogging and cycling...washable but not dryer safe. Surprized your docs haven't suggested this. I too , many years ago, did the steriod injections in my knees for osteoarthritis.
I also use diclofenac Sodium topical gel 1% (generic)  or brand name Voltaren. I put it on in AM at rising andusually that's it. Medicare won't cover it in this form and I won't take the tablets they'll pay for as pills are systemic and I don't want that...too much sodium intake w/ all else. So, I'll look for an OTC gel or creme after I get my Cigna refills

Just take a look you might be glad

MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH IN MANAGING CAT ALLERGENS
Purina scientists have found a way to safely reduce active levels of the major cat allergen found in cats’ saliva. This can transform the way people manage cat allergens. Rather than limiting their exposure to the cat, they can limit their exposure to the allergen instead.

Phyl, I really like this afternoon's photo.

No no don't look for better happier bots. These are interesting that you're posting. I like looking at them and get me thinking.  :)
Interesting about Clark's World and I enjoyed your explanation. Keep them coming please!

I agree 100% about talking to plants .. trees and bushes too. Been doing it for years.  :) And wildlife too.  ;D

The Doc Sleeves link you posted has me interested! I've worn the black stretchy tight knee braces for years off and on when needed.
I had a cortisone injection in elbow years ago but had a reaction to it.
My Dr prescribed Voltaren gel for my knees too. It can be purchased OTC now. It does help I agree. I use on any joint that's hurting and helps sore feet too.  :)

I just read your link about cat allergens. I'm going to pass it along to one of my daughters who loves cats but years ago had to rehome them due to allergy.
One came to my house for a while. I couldn't keep her though because I already had 3 cats and 2 dogs and Reily just didn't get along with them.

you can get voltran over the counter now.  I have it.  but it is a NSAD and I cant use it since I had sleeve surgerySomething with stomache.   I also think I started to get rash in leg a week or so  after taking.  I may try again..I didnt see much of a difference though.  It works for my friend.   I use blue ice.  I will need to lookinto the knee brace. Thanks for the link.  I love the bot photos so interestign.  I love all your photos 

Hi Paulie  Smaller walker this afternon.  yes lots of shade but one I get out of shade in spot super hot.
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: Phyl on June 26, 2021, 08:33:21 PM
I am thrilled that my posts today could be of help to others.

LB I recall now voltarn is OTC...Blue Ice...I shall look into that.  I'm told I need replacement surgery. But am nervous as I know many petites don't get the proper size and it looks and feels dreaadful. so I often use knee braces. 5yrs ago I had arthroscopy of my knees.  I'm constantly bumping and banging them on furnature and in the care. Crap this deosn't help the situation.

Paulie has your daug seen an allergist? I'm told desensiting injections can help as weel. But, yeah this cat food is a huge development. She might keep your cat for a few weeks and feed it this to see how it works. Don't let her adopt a kitty and do this...cuz if this doesn't help then there's a poor cat thinking it has a forever home that will be turned out 'so -to -speak'. But you know what I mean. I'm sure. Just felt better for getting it out there. I worry so about adoptive kitties.

Maggie came in here with a stern mew. So best get her fed.  Luv my little geratric purr machine.

glad you and Copper had a nice  however  damp under the pits, walk. Are temps just hot/dry or hot/humid?   Either way, you know?
#3 for me. Folks enter/exit our lives all the time, I know how you feel. Jim just got a text from his flight mechanic when they were all together at Doan Pet Care/Mars Pet care flight department that they moved from the area and are now living lakeside near Silver Dollar City (Branson, MO). Just like that...no 'good-bye' nothing. We [re feeling kind of abandoned for lacke of better word. Oh well.

Cute bot photo. He needs a human in the tea party.  ;)
Very true about my daughter's life with allergies.

I just remembered I forgot to post my quote likes this morning! #s 1 and 3. Thanks LB.

Puff, A question about the Sky Cafe feeders we both have. You know the wire that holds the top lid on with the ends that turn up like a V and have black rubber tips to put on the wire end? Have either of your black tips or wire ends popped off when you were filling the feeder? One of mine did and now I've lost both black rubber tips. I got the V wire tip inserted back into the hole and now I know to be more careful!!

Well it's time to go out to do the evening watering on plants and veggies.
Later taters.

I had to sit here watching the Sox waiting for sleeping beauty to wake up from not sleeping paulie  :P  cuz he's the official feeder filler upper ---  I asked him if the two sides lost their black tips.  He said we never had anything on the ends, that the metal just slips into the grooves.  If true, we've never had a problem without them.

Oh my gosh Puff, You literally have me laughing. Do you mean when sleeping beauty woke up he claimed he wasn't sleeping? My husband does that saying "Oh I was just resting."  Oh! Okay. You were sound asleep! I'm still laughing.  ;D

Another question. You were watching the Red Sox? 

Thank your for your answer. Evidently the black rubber tip things are something new added. Good you didn't get them because they fall off.  ::) And evidently I'm a bit more aggressive lifting and tilting that big overhang top. I don't lift mine down to add seeds. Too high. I just lift lid and tilt it.  ;) And there's usually Mom Rabbit waiting nearby waiting for her carrots. Gotta love nature!! It's awesome.

Electrician comes tomorrow for yearly maintenance inspection. Will be interesting to see if outlet by broken fridge was the culprit for the wonky other outlets. Interesting since I unplugged the fridge the other outlets are working good so I'm suspecting wonky fridge outlet. New fridge arrives July 1. Please fix it!

Yep - regular sleeping beauty - male version paulie.  "Resting his eyes" is his usual cop out.  When he snaps his head out of whack someday he'll have to make up a new story.  Why not just admit it - no shame, no alibi needed, just tell it like it is?

BoSox?  You're kidding!  I'm a true baseball/sports fan here thanks to my two older brothers.  True sports fans are WHITE SOX followers.  Had seasons tickets for years.  Travels, and weekend travels, made me sacrifice when I retired.  Occasionally still go.  Us fans a getting a better season this year.  Thanks God.

Special handling of feeders at kitchen bay window.  Two feeders, both on pulleys, to raise them about 15-20 ? feet off the ground.  One hand-made (natural wood planks with plexiglass between) holds the nyjer seed.  Sky Chef holds oily and striped suns.  Maybe 8 (?) more feeders in back yard.  Tried an oriole feeder first time this year.  Someone has been eating from it, oranges and grape jam shows evidence, but haven't actually seen anyone.

HI Robot looks sad today just like me :(     I got up this morning to put on my ring.....(back  story.... It's a ring I got when my mom passed away 11 years ago.  I was never able to wear it until recenty.  I lost a lot of weight and it now fits, well loose on ring finger but fits on middle finger.) The ring was nt on my night stand.  I tore my house and car upside down and can not find it.  I even went through my garbge one by one!!!!  THe only other place I can think of is it is at work when I wnt there yesterday but I dont remember putting it on.  The last thing I remember is that I went to put it on SUnday but decided not to wear it and took it off.  I am devasted.    I wont know until Tuesday when I go to work to check.  I did tell my boss to be on a look out for it.  I Just want to cry.

 ANother sd story. my friend/coworker went to hospital SUndayafter sleeping for 2 days and was delirous  when she woke up.  They tested her for covid negative. They said she had keto flue.  SHe did just start the keto diet.   Google keto flu it is a real thing.    I had to google I never heard of it.  Her oxygen level was low and sent her home anyway.  Yesterday she was still not feeling well couldnt breath coulcnt tlk cause she had touble breathing when she talked. SHe went to  a different Hospital. They tested her for covid and she is poitive.  she is now in hospital on Oxygen.  SHe is a year younger than me.    Ne of her text messages was  "lori, I am scared... I dont want to die."  I burst out crying .  Please pray sheis ok.   SHe doesnt have temperature and her oxygen level is up to 96.  But not sur eif thats with the oxygen or without.

Lb inspiration #3. That aside...if you dedided not to wear your mom's ring and you were at home when you decided not to wear it...then it's still in your house or car. This happens to me more than Icare to admit. Relax and watch TV and have a drink after your dinner. Get ingrossed in some program. When your mind is relaxed it may come to you. Think of where you were when you dedided not to wear it and go there and calmly look for it.  The worst that I think that could happen is Copper swalloed it. What him for odd behavior. It should turn up.
I truly hope you find it. The emotional value makes it a treasure in the fact your mom loved it and enjoyed wearing {{{}}}  Copper help your mommy.

God's heavens will know who she is when I say prayers saying, "For LB/Lori's friend." Good news about her oxygen level whether on oxygen or on her own (hopefully on her own). Yes please keep us updated.

About your mom's ring. I hope you find it because it is so special to you. Phyl gave you good advice about trying to focus on something else. It does help and works a lot of times. I had the same thought about Copper maybe.

A short story. When I was 16 my mom gave me her Cameo ring she had been given when she was 16. I cherished it. Years later when I was somewhere and washed my hands in the ladies room I took it off and forgot to put it back on. When I realized it I ran back to ladies room to get it but it was gone. So! I say your story about your mom's ring will reverse and you will find it. I didn't so it's your turn to find a mother's cherished ring. I really really hope so.

I had to leave for a bit. One of my children called to talk.

Phyl, I've not heard the expression "in a racoon's age" before. Anyway, hotter than Hades again today. Temp 97 with heat index 102.
Had an awesome storm come through this evening with lots of rain. Good because very much needed.

Hi jicaji and Puff

Quick update. Electrician from a company I've used for years came Monday for wonky electric issues. He said $789 for a diagnostic and possible repair or $5,041 to replace all outlets and he'd thrown in new smoke detectors in rooms. Umm no.
My contractor guy came next day to take down upper kitchen cabinets for new fridge. He tested outlets and replaced the three that were wonky and add'l two because they were all on same line. Much more affordable and fixed. Thumbs up.

Yesterday I got a call from fridge manufacturer who will deliver to store I bought fridge delivery still on for July 1. Then a call saying no to July 1. This morning I got call delivery July 8. Ballistic husband called store and we got a loaner fridge to use until delivery. Good because living out of a huge cooler for past week was not working and my son and dil from NC who visited earlier this month arrive tomorrow thru the weekend to Mon and Saturday we'll have all family here for cookout. Loaner fridge much appreciated!

Night all. Wishing you a good night's sleep and a better tomorrow. Take care.

Paulie sorry to hear of your appliance issues...some repair folks want to make a month's wages in one visit. 
Actually, the phrase is "...in a coon's age." Originally refering to the same animal and is derived from an older British idiom 'In a crow's age." Both mean ' In a long time' But if is of  some historical use of the term to mean “a clever, cunning person,” based on the supposed cunning of the animal. However, nowadays it's a racial slur (coon) to Blacks/African Americans ;disparaging use for a black person, which seems to have been derived from a Portuguese word meaning, roughly, “the inhabitant of a cage or pen,” was current by the early 19th century. The two originally unrelated terms fused to some extent in the late 19th century; blacks adopted it to apply to each other, but the word was always considered comic at best (like “harp” or “Mick” for an Irishman, “Fritz” or “kraut” for a German, etc.) and at worst deeply offensive. Nowadays it is pretty much completely unacceptable in polite society.
 I live in the Deep South. Though not native to the South... I'd never dream of referting to racoon as a coon, which use to be acceptable slang for the animal, as it solely refers to a Black person. That's why I use the animals name and not the slang.

LB #1  How are you doing? Keep us  posted on your mama's ring.  When my mother died I kept the good jewellry. I have her wedding set which I use to wear. But, then I recalled that the center diamond was prone to get loose and fall out...with that thought I leave it in my big jewellry box, where it's always safe. But,  with the optjon of putting it on a chain to wear. But, only rarely

Good Morning  SDtill cannot find ring.  The only hope id its at work. I will go there Tuesday.  I still look where ever I go.  But I pretty much tore up the house and even went through garbage one by one Thank god I have pleaty of gloves to use!!! I still hv hope. I lost my ear buds in the winter I accidental threw it out in the grass while feeding squirrels peanuts.  I did find it a fewdays ago (of curse broken)  So there is hope!!!!!

I went to foot doctor yesterday because my heel has been bothering me for the last week or so.  He extayed foot.  My 2 end toes are developing arthritis and when i walk I dont bend toes so of course it cause tension on the rest of foot along with the arthritis in my knees. I also have a tiny bone spur in heal. SO he wants to me to rest my foot for the next couple of weeks which is more like a month that is when I see him net.  I am wearing a walking boot now. Pretty buch the same one as to when I tore y achielles in right foot.  I do not want to tear another one!!! That was the worse healing process ever!!!!

Aww Pzaulie fix electical and new refrigerato. Nt good!!!!

Peeps-
is slang word that means "people," which takes the "peep" sound of "people" and adds an "s." It is considered a cool and fun way to refer to more than one person. The term is typically only reserved for friends, or at least acquaintances.

https://www.bing.com/search?q=define+peeps+slang&qs=AS&pq=define+peeps&sk=AS1&sc=8-12&cvid=0238955EAF794E3DB0A588138756027D&FORM=CHRDEF&sp=2

In view of this defination, we're all 'peeps' here as we are, at least, cyber friends . While some are actually longtime  physical friends.  ;)

LB inspirations are all good .
If it were me I'd been down at work the very day I noticed the ring was missing. Does your boss/company have a 'lost/found' department? Those may have gone by the wayside in ths messed up day and age. Just becasue you're not scheduled to work doesn't mean you can be at work if you have good reason.  And,  you have good reason...don't call...go down there. Look your work station over, check lavatory, check w/ janitor (cleaning service), your supervisor, etc. at least let folks know it's missing and it has personal value for you.  In My Humble Opnion...IMHO
Any way sure hope you can locate it and soon. I'd want you to have it back.

Seems  Like I have stories these days   SO I spent my 4th of JUly with my power kept going off.  They would put it back pon a couple of hours would go by and off again. The 2d time when he got it on I asked him to check the ac cause something seemed wrong.  OMG. He spent hours looking at it. everytime he switched it on the powe would go off.   So it turns out the comperssor of ac is shot.  I just called in another dervice ticket for them to bring a portable AC. It
s going to be close to 100 the next 2 days.  I have to go into office  this week so I am worried abput Copper. God only knows how long it will take to get the AC fixed.  I am sure they have to go through some steps and being 4th of JUly weekend.  When they come today I am going to ask if thye can at least call to start setting up the appointment.   ALso I hope if its this week that I can work from home that day. Copper didnt behave yestrdy with service guy here.  sigh.....UPDATE. Just got a call from maintence on call . He doesnt know if they have a portable AC.  I then said Well can you please call someone to se eif they can come since it will be close to 100 tomorroq. He doesnt know.   He relally doesnt nt to put out the effort especially since its a holiday for them today.  I am giving an hour then calling back and telling htem something needs to be done.  I have asthma and a dog.

Hopefully, the maintance dept. will get this resolved soon. 
Rats!?  Well something's seriously wrong now. They need to fine the nest and destroy it all.   Darn rodents will eat thru anything so a temp fix by plugging the holes is no good.  Helping wildlife is fun and rewarding hobby. So nice that you enjoy doing this and it gives you happiness. I truly hope you'll be able to keep this up...esp once the rat issuse is exterminated.

Here' s more  on 'After the Fledge' doings.

Hey everyone!  Just a little information about the 'After The Fledge' Trout Run Trail Bike Ride on Saturday, July 17.  Weather permitting we will meet at Decorah Bicycles at 8:45 AM CDT.  It opens at 9:00 AM on Saturdays.  I called and asked about wearing Masks inside the shop.  They are not required but are optional.  Decorah Bikes is located right next door to the famous Whippy Dip at 101 College Drive.  They do not take reservations so it is "first come, first serve".  Here is the link:  https://www.decorahbicycles.com/

We will be doing the easier part of the trail and that will be from the bike shop to the Decorah Fish Hatchery and back.  It's about 9 miles round trip.  We do stop and take a break at the hatchery.  There are 2 hills that we encounter. If you have not been on a bike in a while, I strongly recommend that you ride some before the day.  Please feel free to call the shop to discuss bike options and prices.  I'm including a link to the trail map.  We'll be doing the Purple dots #1-4 up to the Bald Eagle image:  https://parks.decorahia.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/TRT_TrailMap-2.jpg 

Enjoy this virtual bike ride video showing how beautiful the trail is: https://youtu.be/8eG0XGs7Nrw

Good Evening  No word on when AC is coming. Yesterday the note said  he'll le tme know today , Nothing  I will call office tomorrow to find out when and probablt blown off, that is how I felt when I called then TUesday. She didnt want to be bbothered.    today is day 5.  I lowered the portable AC to 6.  THe bedroom as to fand both facing the bed, that is where copper sleeps.  He seems to be doing ok.   But they di dset the rat trap,  I am actually sad for some reason.    I may come up with more work orders for them to do around the complex until I get my air fixed.  There is a light outside that needs a build.  Plus the light in my bathroom is funk. there are 3 bulbs. the middle one some times turns on soetimes nt.  THey will probably just change the light bulb bt I think its sometthing more.   The light fixture could be on for 5 minuted.  Abd th eone blub will be out then all of a sudden turns on or ff depending if its on or off. It's mosly. off. Yesterday I heard my neighbor upstairs stepping above the bathroom and the light bulb turned on LOL

Hi!! Been frustrating busy here. Even just as I began to key my post my phone rang and got texts. Oh gees there's another one!

Car rental place called this A.M. Insurance rental days now done so we pay going forward.
Jeep parts still on back order.
Home Depot re: new fridge delivery. Was to be July 1st then July 8 today. Nope now delivery Aug 6 due to Port Delay entering country.
Home Depot did give us a loaner refrigerator but it's small so we're using that and a large cooler. I was given option of floor model with discount or a similar but bit smaller fridge but I've decided to stand firm and wait for the fridge I want.
Contractor is waiting for a reply on some work I want but not time for that right now.
I need a vacation!  ::)

One awesome thing was a great visit with my son and dil. They left a bit earlier this week. The holiday cookout this past Saturday was a blast! We had 17 people here .. all family and a few friends. We grilled tons of things, lots of sides, music playing inside and out, horse shoes, fireworks and a reeeealy late night. Lots of late nights actually.  ;D

This week dealing with 3 days so far of heat index 102 but today is a bit better.

I'm going to go back to July 1 when I was last here to read and catch up now.

Geez to your A/C! Good that you got a portable A/C and have fan blowing on cutie Copper.
Oh no that rat again?!! I understand your feeling sad about the trap. That bugger is just doing what rats do but you can't have it there.
Oh wow now lights and wiring. Yes agreed put in a work order for that. That's very important and could be dangerous.
How is your friend doing that is in the hospital?

Phyl, Thank you for asking about me.
Did Jim get his car back yet? Which means you have your Kia back? Hope so.  :)
Who is Jill?

Hi jicaji, Puff, Tig

Some jerk in my neighborhood is setting off fireworks right now. It's daylight! Crazy. Time to stop this.

Ok. Gotta go. Things to catch up on around house. I'm glad I'm all caught up on with happenings here.
Take care everyone.

Paulie  Gosh ! What a past few days. I'm sure sooner or latrer it'll all work out.
Jim got his Pontiac back it was security sys...$1000.00 ...car won't work w/o that.
Yes. I have my Kia.

I'm very concerned for/about LB though!  :(


Jill= Jilitosa,  some in Beakroom refer/address her as Jil (Jill).

Busy day here. Gotta get back.

HI I need a vacation tooo!! Can I go with you Paulie??   LOL Wow now August for refrigerator and b/o for car parts.  EVERYTHING  is late these days!!!!! it's crazy!!!!!!!   Glad you hd a good time with family and friends. 

My updates ..... Mothing. well nothing good
I wont get ac/heat replaced until MOnday or Tuesday. To make long story short I had to call 3 times today just to get that answer!!!! Last night was so stuffy in the bedroom I had trouble sleeping.  Thank god it's going to be a little cooler (80's) but it gets so stuffy in here.


Rat trap is set.  Didnt see the little bugger stick it's head out the whole in 2 days.  I feed squirrel in the front of house (opposite side where rat nest is)  very minimal and the blue Jays and squirrels  gobble them up  pretty fast. SO I am happy.  How long do I have to wait to feed bird seed in my feeder??  sigh.

We are short handed at work. When I got home I logged on to finish my work. Just finished a little while ago    I am getting $50 spot award which is an extra $50 to show they are aware of my hard work .  Yippy. See I do have some good news. 

My friend/coworker got out of hospital Sunday. SHe sounds horrible though going to the doctor tomorrow.  She can't get an apointment with pulmologist until  August.  SHe sounds horrible.   You can here the stuffiness in her chest. (like Bronchitis)   SHe sounds so tired.   Not sure when she will be back in work.   sad........

Phyl, Yes it will all work out eventually. I've decided it is what it is. I've done what I can do with whatever is going on and will deal with things as they happen. I'm even getting used to this small 10 cubic foot refrigerator! Lol

Good news about Jim/Pontiac and you/Kia but not the bill!!

Thanks for explaining about Jill/Jilltosa. Did I miss a post from her in Cheers? Darn it if I did.

I like your Night robot holding a star. Looks promising.  :)

Absolutely LB! You name the place to go and we're outta here!!  ;D

Good about it getting cooler in your area since you won't get A/C replaced until Monday or Tuesday. Hang in there! You've made it through the worst hotter days.

Interesting about not seeing that little bugger the past two days. Nature seems to definitely have a sixth sense. Definitely wait on the bird feeder seed until you know "the coast is clear".

Congratulations on your $50 award! Yes they are definitely aware of your going the extra mile and work. You were recognized previously for that also. Good for you LB! You have excellent work ethics.

Thank you for the update on your friend. Good news she's out of the hospital. That was scary. Excellent she sees a doctor tomorrow. Hopefully the doctor will help her get a referral to see a pulmonologist sooner than August.

How is it in your part of NJ with Elsa passing through? Stay safe.

I hope you and Copper sleep better tonight.

LB hoping  you/Copper had a restful night. Oops. I missed that your/co-worker is out of hospt.  That's good news. Sometimes folks recover better at home.
Maybe that rat is 'gone'.  :-\
The cooler days will make the AC situation much more bareable. 

Paulie I don't think Jilltosa has posted here for a couple of days.  I always enjoy her pics of her flowers/garden.

Good Morning all  :)

I slept like a log last night!
Also last night one of my daughter's and I were texting each other and after a while we were both lol while texting each other so much so our sides hurt. Was fun and much needed for us both. Laughter is always great and healing and a good release.

LB, TGIF for you!

Phyl, Thanks about Jill.

I hope baz and Zippo got through Elsa okay. She's always prepared ahead of time. I'd enjoy seeing a post from her.

Some good news this morning. All the Jeep parts have been received and work begins Monday. Yay!
Got tons of rain here yesterday from Elsa. Rain was much needed too.

I wish everyone a pleasant day.

Hi TGIF for sure. rough week.  My friend doctor visit is that she is out of the office for the remainder of month. SHe has a 90 minute communte dr doesnt want her driving  for so long right now especially since she tires easily.  She is trying to see if she can work from home part time or whatever she can handle .   Hopefully they agree we need help.  The only thing is  management at work is just thinking she came in contact with someone who had ccovid and she has to quarentine.  They are not getting the fact she got covid and  it was not  a mild case.  she needs time to recover.  THey have her coming back to work Tuesday.   Unvbelievable.  We'll see what happens 

I tdont trust my apartment complex so I am putting in another work order to have AC?heating unit replaced so it's on record and they dont forget about me.  LOL  THey just sent n email in how they are short handed and we should have patience.  BUt hey maintence isnt working on my unit they have to get  contractor.  I am just going to rest this weekend after I clean.  I didnt really clean last weekend with the ac issues and the power kept going off.   

DOe snayone have contact info on Baz??? 

Elsa hit us  in the middle of the night into this morning.  JUst rain in my area. not so bad. SUn was out by noon  But hot and humid as always
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: paulie on July 09, 2021, 06:11:57 PM
LB, Wow your friend definitely did NOT have a mild case and she needs time to recover. Your employer has her returning to work next Tuesday?! They must not know or understand the full scope of how ill she was and still is needing time to rest and recover. I just reread your post. Apparently they do not understand if they think she was in contact with someone and needs to quarantine. Your friend should ask her Dr office to contact employer to set them straight!!  Please keep us updated.

Good for you for putting in another work order!! Agreed if they are short handed they need to hire out to a contractor. Is it just your apartment that's affected or the whole building? You'll feel better after you clean and tidy up and then yes rest. You've had a rough long work week.

The only contact info I have on Baz is by PM. She did reply to a PM I sent her weeks ago and she said she was taking a break from the Forum for a bit.

Good that Elsa wasn't bad in your area. Same here. Lots of rain then today after I mowed man did a nasty storm hit with torrential downpours, thunder and lightening. It's sunny now but humidity still high.

I was just weeding my veg gardens and came here for a breather. I'm going to go back outside to finish then a loooong shower and fresh pajamas then relax this evening.  ;D

I would wait until you have confirmation from maintenance that rats have been trapped. I would also respect my neighbors wishes. You do not live in a single family home. Even if you did, what you do on your property can still affect your neighbors. Just my two cents. Respectfully offered.

Hi!  :)

Life got busy again! And geesh to these temps in 90s with tropical dew points. Many code red storm warnings, torrential down pours w/really bright flashes of lightening and loud thunder plus flash flooding in areas. It's definitely summer!

Rosie my Rose of Sharon tree is still standing strong with help and full of leaves and flowers. She's not a quitter and neither am I.  ;D

LB, Geesh you're working from home this week with no A/C. Have your temps let up for you while working from home?
Yay I sure hope your A/C was fixed today!!

Good Morning!! THE AC is fix!!!! However, I got notice (as the rest of the residence) got a letter not to feed the squirrels and wildife.  Never specfically said birds though.  i just bought a huge bag of eanuts. Not sure how I am going to do this.   THe 2 neighbors that complain livies right by me and they can see my back area  where I feed them.   I startd feeding in the front where they cant see. My neighbot on the ther side feeds thm as well.  She also feeds ferral cats and the feral cats  were mentioned as well nt to feed.   THe next week or so may get interesting.   I should tell the one woman who complained if she stops spmoking outside her apartment cause I smell it when I walk copper and second hand smoke is not healthy.  I will Take photo of letter and down load it here tonight after work   LOL  I am mad feedig the birda and squirrel is my joy.   I am sure the letter came because I reported and my neighbors reported the rats provbaly their way to coveer there is a rat problem.

LB are your peanuts in shell or shelled. That makes a big difference. The shells will give feeding away every time. I use shelled and split in half . There's no trace of peanut at all. The blue jays swallow the halved. Our jays are quiet never hear them at all. The squirrels/ chipmunks won't stay so long as they don't have to eat thru the shell. And, c. munks can pack more in those chubby cheeks. We have one that makes a day of packing cheeks and hording in it's den. Won't see it for days on end.
This is what I use. Can find online at Walmart and other sites as well.

I also use a squirrel feedr jar. So the nuts aren't scattered on the ground like chicken feed. You can hid the jar in shrubbery that isn't trimmed. The critters will find it! The birds learn to enter the jar and pick waht they want and fly away.
https://www.plowhearth.com/p/59N35?aff=5329&msclkid=302153c950c010c9b1aa3326658d7b57

Don't recall where I got mine. But i'ts just like this.

can be screwed into tree or on a deck(like us).

Also you and  your neighbor should leave the feral cats out of the issue. Don't bring up the issue of the cats controling the rodent issue. I've worked w/feral cats abit. It will not bode well for them.  Just keep them a secret and contact an organization like Alley Cat Allies to advise you on how to deal with the situation. Maybe even help if they have a chapter in your town.
https://www.alleycat.org/ (https://www.alleycat.org/)

If you ge the rats or mice again...I'd advise to kill them  yourselves. IMHO...the less you complain about certain issue and deal with yourself the more you can have what you want in life. It also gives you more power over your own life and that equals happiness.
Just saying...
Also great idea about the smoker. That is more of a health hazard than the wildlife.

Thanks  Phyl.  I Only report the rats because I had no choice my 2 neighbors already reported .   The one neighbor saw one and knocked on my door to tell little did he know I knew abot it about them for 9 months but I played stupid.  Took him long enough to discover them

 I have th shellled peanuts I have been feeding them for 2 years and no one complained.  I will be buying the non shelled ones in the future.  I put seed on the ground at night in back I throw the seeds in bushes in front.  I never mentioned the feral cats.   I know my one neighbor who I dont speak to anylonger  (a long story I mentioned it way back when it happened, I think. I'll explain another time) feeds the feral cats.  I never seen them.  THey definitly do hide very well.  I just see her and her husband go and feed them.  I see nothing wrong with feeding them  The more I think about the 2 dead rats  I saw, I wouldnt be surprised if the cats got them But i know nothing about cats let alone fral cats. Actually I have seen cats a couple of times at night walking around  not  sure if feral or not. One neighbor lets his cat outside.  I just dont want the rat make it in my apartment.

I'm confused...if you use the shelled peanuts with no complaints. Why would you want to use the in shell peanuts that leave a mess and draw attention?

Okay I understand about the bird seed...you sly boots!  ;D ;)

Sometimes it's a good idea to 'play dumb" .
No one wants rats in their home, the thought gives me the 'hebee-geebes'
 Yeah feral cats are very frightened of humans. I see nothing wrong w/feeding them. I was just concerned about drawing too much attention to the fact the feral cats are there.  Cat are natural predators of rodents. And, I say let the feral cats have the rats and mice!! 

So relieved you and Copper now have your AC. You know by law they can't take too long about fixing that sort of thing.

SHe didnt realize I fed the squirrels .   LOL    SHe told me to behave she doesnt want me to get in trouble because I am nice.  LOL   SO now i have ot be extra careful  She has no problem with m feeding the birds but she told me to wait until things die doen she says she feeds them in the winter  SO here s the letter everyone received I got it via email as well so I am copying and pasting it  here.   

Dear Valued Residents,
We have received several reports of residents feeding wildlife (i.e., squirrels, feral cats, etc.) within the
community.

Please remember that the feeding of wild animals and waterfowl is both detrimental to the animals and
causes a public health nuisance and safety hazard that is detrimental to the health and general welfare of the
public.
• The feeding of wildlife is extremely disruptive to the natural feeding habits of wildlife; while people
enjoy handing out food, the action is detrimental to the animals.
• The intentional feeding of wildlife not only attracts predators and rodents, feeding wildlife can result in
wildlife being concentrated at artificial feeding areas, making them more susceptible to disease
transmission.
• Animals used to being fed become accustomed to human-provided food & alter their foraging
behavior.
• Animals fed by humans are drawn into heavy traffic areas seeking handouts, and are killed by vehicles,
or cause accidents.
• Pets can become involved in altercations with wildlife. Dogs especially can get into conflicts with
possibly sick wildlife and become injured or diseased.

If you should see someone in the community feeding the wildlife, please report it to the office so it can be
addressed with that individual. It’s important that we work together for the greater good of our community
and our local wildlife. Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

LB, Sounds like your friendly neighbor has your back. Good.  ;)

With the unknown bird disease going around different states my local county has requested a stop to birdfeeders and turning birdbaths upside down. The almost two weeks of high 90s I felt the birdbaths and ground level water low troughs (for lack of better description) were needed. I can also hear lots of baby birds in nests and bird houses chirping to be fed and have watched. I'm keeping my feeders and 4 birdbaths clean and have continued feeding and providing water. However I have noticed the bird population in my yard has either doubled or tripled. Probably because of others who have stopped. I'm keeping a close eye on the birds for symptoms and so far so good. Fingers crossed.

Something cool. This evening when I was in veg garden I noticed a hummingbird nearby visiting the two butterfly bushes. I stood and watched when suddenly it was literally at my face looking at me staying stationary then left right up down checking me out. I said "Hello Sweetheart. There's also nectar feeders." It then went to nearby trumpet vine.  :)
 
Hummers have done this to both me and my husband when on our deck in the past years too and this year but it's always a cool experience. It's said Hummingbirds remember faces and locations they visit. Nature is awesome.

Oh my gosh you did make me laugh about you .. birdseed ... and withdrawal!

Awww to your and Bluejays. Did you throw some peanuts out last night? Problem is when putting things out at night other nocturnal creatures are out and eat what you hope will be there in the morning.

Na! You don't have a mean streak. Let's call it tit for tat. Her comment to you was veeerrry rude and uncalled for. Pfffff to her!

Hello Cherrios...
(https://i.pinimg.com/564x/36/36/c3/3636c3ee4d940efeab6b3feb06aa3342.jpg)

Lb With those hotter temps you're having, good thing 'they' got your AC fixed.
How is the peanut shelling comming along? Are you using a hammer yet?
Paulie had some rain this morning...all morning.  ;D
Phyl, Cute photo with train 'lighters'. Good to you getting some rain all morning!  ;D

Today we (me husband son daughter and friend) were to go to western pa for yearly event called "100 Mile Yard Sale". We began going many years ago. Not every year though. People from Canada travel to attend there too. Fun time and lots of different small town food fenders and lots of yard sales of course.
Well weather forecast for west pa is storms w/heavy downpours and high winds. Don't want that in the mountains and back roads! So we didn't go. Same storms forecast here for later this afternoon and evening. Time will tell.

Earlier I watched the virtual RRP After the Fledge broadcast with John Howe and another man spoke. Both were very good and the second man who spoke (didn't hear his name) was a hoot! Good stories. Very interesting presentation by John Howe. Amy was there of course too. Awesome work they all do.

Puff, I just remembered you're attending the ATF event. I bet you're having a great time!

Glo and I pm'd each other last week and she was definitely going again this year. She loves it there! And her bike trail ride!  :)

jicaji, Are you and cutie Violet wearing tea party hats again?  :) Oh! This is Nana's (I hope I got that correct) Birthday Tea Party!   ;D

Later everyone. Have "stuff" to get done in house.

LB a-ha! Caught at the scene of the crime/s.
So management hasn't done a thing about the vermin?   

In your email to management....Subject line : Look what I found
 then attach photos
Don't forget they may want to check out your place
Now, do they  have to let you know if they need to get inside your apartment and when and  why? Isn't there  a rental clause that they do this? At least it use to be true.
If anyone asks about the
  de-shelled peanuts  and the spent shells you toss out...
 You could just say that you like eating them like this. What are they gonna say. Millions of folks are fond of them raw or blanched. And, that you're following suggestions in their letter.  Which you are (for the present... ;D)

How's Copper?
Well  gotta get busy.
Take care.

LB, Oh my gosh!! I see that little bugger!! I thought of you today when I was looking at an email from a place where I've ordered a variety of things from before. When I saw this I thought of you.

https://www.whateverworks.com/itemdy00.aspx?ID=4,2194&T1=KD1036+3PAC

If you decide to order and put them around it would keep them away from the current location. Not sure what management would say about using  them but heck they aren't in any hurry to fix the problem!!
Also! Management needs more than an exterminator. They need to hire someone to replace that pipe with a hole in it. Put a repellent ball in or by that opening too. Geesh. You shouldn't have to be doing all of management's work but it will hopefully keep rodents away from your area.

Phyl, Good that you got some soaking rain. I got clobbered here with storms and rain. My phone kept going off with lightening warnings and flood watch for areas. I think/hope storms are done for the night.

LB, Radar showed some intense storms and rain in NJ too. One of my daughters and her family are in NJ for the weekend so I gave her a heads up.

I got tons done inside today with filing and creating more files = more organization. I've still got some things to do because I created a pile of more to do things.  ::) One day at a time.  ;)

Good Morning all  :)

LB, I'm glad all your storms passed through and your cable reset.

Hi jicaji and Phyl

Geesh talk about storms and rain. Got 3 inches here yesterday. Local news said total rain here this month almost 8 inches. The water table here was below normal in June but now we've received more rain so far than we normally do for a full year. At least no drought in sight!

Temps and dew point have dropped and I have windows and deck door open. Ahhhh fresh air and no A/C!!

jicaji, You mentioned your electric bill due to your A/C. I was wondering the same for here but I'm hoping my less water usage due to not having to water so much because of so much rain past weeks will balance out.

Time to get myself moving. Going to make a pork roast today. Easy meal. Trim some fat from roast then sprinkle with garlic salt .. sear all sides in melted butter (love butta!!) .. cover with water to top of roast .. 30 minutes before done add sauerkraut to pan .. mashed potatoes and Bush's original baked beans. Easy clean up too. Thumbs up.  :)

Wishing everyone a pleasant day. Take care.

Funny, I always say to my granddaughter Julia when we bake together, "Butter makes it better."  Your dinner sounds great.  Love Pork, sauerkraut and Bush's beans too.  Do you cook in oven or on top of range?  I never cooked pork roast in water.

We have well water, which gets pumped by electric pump....so water free, but whenever the pump needs to go on, it's electricity...

Yep agreed to butter!!  ;D

I cook pork roast on top of range. It's the same way my grandmother and my mom cooked theirs. Their recipe. I've never cooked a pork roast in oven! Lol

Cool about you have well water. Do you mean electric used when sump pump turns on?

Paulie.....It's a well water pump....Not a sump pump....It just goes on when we have to use a certain amt. of water.  Anyway, the water tastes GREAT.....There is a tank in the basement that stores water and when that gets low, the pump pumps more water into it.

Phyl, I hope your rain has stopped!

Hi jicaji

Updates: -The new refrigerator still has delivery date August 6.
              -Still working with contractor to maybe get new kitchen cabinets to accommodate wider space for new fridge. If so, cabinets
               I chose have an 8 to 10 weeks back order. Pandemic has made life interesting.
              -The Jeep still at auto body shop. They're having difficulty finding special ordered hood items that were on Jeep hood
               previously. Entire hood and bottom front need replaced. Definitely needs realignment.
               That tractor trailer driver is lucky to not be around my husband right now!

And so a new day and week begins for us all.  ;)  ;D

Metro Water put in an over flow ditch right behind us so that fills and becomes a river and if that over flows, which it has  and flooded up to the top step of deck and covered my front porch .

Phyl, Good about no more rain for you and the over flow ditch sounds good when it doesn't over flow. No holding back Mother Nature.

No wanting to scream for me. I've learned years ago how to go with the flow. Was just giving an update. Honestly it is what it is. Oh! I have a Tshirt that says that!  ;D

Contractor called me today and began conversation with "Are you ready for the storm?" My reply, "What storm?" Well a bit later it began and poured like the dickens. I didn't have to water everywhere outside again. That's positive thinking. Always find the positive.  ;D

LB, Okay. Working from the office this week which sounded reeeealy boring today!

How is your friend/co-worker recovering?

You're still shelling peanuts! Reading your post had me laughing. It's nice of you to want to give him unshelled peanuts but at this point I'd give them shelled and unshelled and call it a day! I do understand though about taking a huge bag to work vs a box.

Yes save those boxes because you will definitely be moving! I say and hope this is your last year's lease at your current complex. You need to get out of there. Where there's a will ... there's a way. Next year is going to be your year to move.  ;)

I hope you sleep better tonight. You sound exhausted.

Hate you shelling all those peanuts. But it would make the load much lighter. So you have a duffle bag? Could put them in that and pretend it's dirty laundry for the dry cleaners.  ;D
Hopefully you'll get more rest tonight.  Moving is a good idea

I see winter!!!!! LOL I am now home.  Over the weekend thye were doing upgrade to our work system.  It didnt go as planned and we are still not up....   WSE got yo leave around 1.  I played games and  started to watch a movie.  LOL  If system comes up we will need to ocme back.  I only live abut 20 minutes away so not so bad but no one thinks we will be up.  I have boxes actually just got a couple of deliveries so I will put the peanuts in the boxes but first put them in shoppoing bags so they arent loose in the box.    Yes I am still deshelling I  might as well get some peanuts that leave no evidense out of  it. I did send email  to  the complex and showed pictures of the rat. They said give it another week and if they are still around  they will go more aggressive but they did send maintence to cover the holes.  dumb therats will  just dig themselves back out!!! They told me if I see any one feeding the wild life to try and get a photo.    :o :o :o :o SHould I take a selfie? ??? I know the nasty woman is  still feeding I see the shells.  I wont be able to get a photo she does it when no one is looking. maybe early in morning or middle of night.  hmm PLus if I turn her in she'll tell on me, if she sees me.  it's a wait and  see kind of thing I guess. If I can get a photo I will and save it.  But i do have a  photp of her feeding area in the back.   LOL  Like Phyl says Tit for Tat!!!  I am still tired today probably the weather.... My co worker started work today she is bck to same atttitude. but she is working fom home this week plus no work today but she is going through all the mails while she was out.  1400 of them LOL  so I will probably be working overtime for the next couple of days   once we are back  up.   I agree I love your attitude Paulie.  I need to learn from you!!!  UPDATE.......   I talked to my one neight who ran into the nasty woman and she admitted  to syill feeding the animals and she will contine that the rats have the right to live...THshe also said they have more right to live than humans.     so I gave him her apartment  number.  I am beginning to think hes not calling as he says he is

Hi!  :)

Phyl, Very true to yesterday's photo about phones!

LB, You see winter?? I missed what you mean. Good to hear your co-worker is recovered enough to work from home but back to same attitude? I take it she's got a not good attitude. She should be grateful to be alive after the fears she had!!

About your nasty neighbor. Take a step back I suggest. "What goes around, comes around." as the saying goes .. also .. Karma.  ;)

Hi jicaji, You have a good day too!

I worked outside a lot yesterday and evening. Hot/humid yes but I had to take lot of rests returning inside that I don't normally do. I later found out from local weatherman that we were in air sever quality alert past 2 days due to smoke and haze having come here from all the fires out west. Scary it came that far to PA because can you imagine what it's like there? God bless all the people, pets and wildlife and all the burning lands trees etc. Terrible.

On that note we should all be grateful for all the good in our lives for sure.
Wishing everyone a good day.
We're under another sever storm alert again.  ;) ::)

The more you feed the nastiness in the world the nastier it becomes.  Agree with Paulie, step back and lie low for a while...give nasty person some room to get in trouble on her own.
 Can you rent a house that will allow for Copper?
Paulie Yeah. I missed the meaning in 'I see winter' as well.
Those fires out West are heartbreaking.
WE can always have it worse than we do ...'gratitude' is key.
All the best w/ your weather. Take care.

welll I did it now. . MY nasty neighbor called the cops on me because she caught taking photos of her bird feeder filled with bird seed. I have email from managemnt saying to take a phot if we see anything so I diid but want going to send it.  I just know this lady is nuts and wanted back up. Before she called she said she is going ot get me.....  SHe made up a lie that I was peaking through her door. and I was on her patio.  I showed the cop the photos showing I was on side walk.  while I was talking to the cop she was saying to stop with the fake smile and was  saying other things.  I told the cop I took that has harrassement,  He said I can go to the station and file a complaint.  I said I will wait to see what happens through the wekend but I know most likely nothing will be done because it's a she said I said situation.   I also heard that she as yelling at the maintence worker for doing the rat poison that the rats derseve to live more than humans.  It was bad.   I am a nervous wreck she was yelling at me when the cops was talking to me.  I called management to put a complaint against her.  I dont know what to do. Her apartment is across from me.   I need to walk in front of her apartment whenver I go to my car.  I did tell mnaagemnt that i did feed squirrle but stopped soon as I saw the rats.  It's a mess...  she also had it with another neighbor of mine.  I Know!!!!  you guys can yell at me.  But I can tell you I do pretty much keep to myself believe it or not. 

ON a happier note I watchFRozen today.  I neever saw that movie  LOL we were still down... so far we are still down now.  SOme may be home tomorrow. I would think the computer system will  would be up tomorrow But we were down a month back when we were hacked in Decemeber.

Dearest LB get your bum out of there ASAP.
If you can't avoid walking past her apartment then turn your head away from her windows and doors! Don't speak or gesture . Keep your doors/ windows/car locked. At night in a quick casual manner make a parimeter check  do you have out door plants you can water? That's a good cover for checking outside. And do same for your car. Don't be predictable in  your habits and leave for work at varied times and arrive home at varied times to keep her off her game. Leave you porch lights on all night and a nightlight in a room at night w/ drapes closed.
Start looking for another place to live right now.
Been in that situation and leaving is the only other option in my humble opnion.
Keep you mouth shut to and about this woman. 
She's a nut case I do believe.
Above all don't throw peanuts any more. Now she'll blame you and toss them in your area and say it's you!!!
Get the peanuts out of there now. Don't shell any more. Just give everything to this guy and let him deal with shelling them.If you tell him wha'ts going on I'm sure he'll understand.
  Bag the empty shells you have and take them to work to throw away tomorrow. Really.
Hugs LB/Copper

Thanks  Phyl. The shlled peanuts are in the car.  Been since yesterday. The others is in a tupperwer bin inmy apartment.  I will get them out.  But as hard as it will be I am not feedin gthem anymore.  sigh  I am hearbroken about it.  I cant move.  My lease was just renewed. It starts AUgust 1. I will see what happens tomorro wwith the propertty manager.     I want to ask if I do not feel safe can I break my lease.   I know they moved another couple to anther aprtment because the neightbors were too noisy  bu they just moved in  I doubt thy will do that for me.  If I move I want out of the complex.   Believ I stopped talking to her for the last 9 months.   I had weigh lose surgery and I lost 132 lbs. she had th enerve to tell me whats going on it doent look like I lost any weight.  I stopped talking to her from that moment.  cause she insulted me.  SHe said a whole lot more as well.  She tried saying hi to me like 2 months later and I ignored her.  she was not happy.  I have no problem in ignoring her.

Oh LB. What a mess with that neighbor. She definitely sounds like a grumpy not nice person.

Phyl gave you some very good advise. And yes stay away and avoid her at all costs no matter what.

I remember about you renewing your lease. I did have the thought about you asking to move to a different apartment away from her if one is available when I was reading then you explained about a couple they moved. I doubt they'll allow you to break your lease due to they're receiving $$ but maybe they'd allow a month to month lease until you found another place  .. and yes you did look a few months ago but if you found a safe nice place away from this complex and nasty neighbor remember your father said he'd help you. I'm sure he'll be worried about you. And just maybe under the circumstances with this neighbor they will agree to move you to a different apartment because of your safety concerns. Heck a new apartment won't have the electrical issues your current one does and maybe no rodents.

I just had a thought .. don't let Copper lick or eat anything from the ground while near her place or anywhere for that matter. I'm sure you avoid this anyway but just a thought. One cannot trust unkind unglued people. I remember her insulting words she said to you. I believe you did the right thing ignoring her. She's nasty and jealous. 

Sorry for what you're going through. Kudos to you for all of your weight loss and you've continued being vigilant too and a very nice person. Thumbs up to you!! I'm sending you hugs!!!

LB....I am so sorry you're going through this.  I have a friend in Jersey who is having similar problems with a neighbor.  It's awful to not have peace where you live.  Hopefully things will work out.  Prayers for you and Copper.

Know we are all here rooting for you my friend.
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: Phyl on July 22, 2021, 01:29:26 AM
LB do remember what Paulie said about not letting  Copper nose about the outdoors/eat/drink in tha area.  Wow! That's a lot of weight you dropped.  I bet you look sexy now. LOL  ;)
they ought to let you move to a different if you can't get out of your lease.  If you neighbor is a bitch and you have fears call the police and make reports then you'll have that to fall back on w/management. Watch what she does.
 I fret so about you ...eveyone here does.
jicaji is right abou not having peace where one lives. Your 'home  is your refruge from the world and it needs to be peaceful...tranquil. ANd, that we all here are for you Glad you're thru w/ the nuts and it's all out in your car.
Just be cool and patient in time you may be able to use non-shell nuts again  All things work to our good...He said that. That may not be what you want to hear. But sometimes 'change' brings us to a better place.
Give Copper some love, he feels your stress.
Hug yourself, too.
Hope you can get some rest.
Hugs from me too.

Lb-
I am so sorry you are dealing with this unpleasant situation.  I have been in a similar situation with a new neighbor who moved in across the hall. Phyliz has given you some awesome advice “she rocks” also, Paulie also gave some great advice & had mentioned about Copper. I was thinking the same thing. This woman is not stable & cannot be trusted.  As hard as it is going to be ignore her.  She wants to push your buttons, don’t let her.  I filed a restraining order against my neighbor for spraying mace on my back as I entered my condo.  It was nothing more than a piece of paper for me & didn't help, but it could help for you.  I would also document dates & times of incidents.  Remember to not look or talk to her as Phyliz said.  Great job on the weight loss, I know it’s extremely difficult & it’s nice to hear positive comments.  She is just jealous by the way ;). Take care.  Hi to Copper.

Good Afternoon  :)

Busy morning and afternoon leaving early to drive to husband's appointment then errands afterwards. Glad to be home!

LB, I hope your day's better today but wondering and worrying too about what's happening today. I think you're still working from home unless computer system is back up and you went into work.
I'm very sure we're all looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi jicaji, Phyl and Lori

Lori! Very nice seeing you in Cheers again and your good advise to LB. Sorry you had to deal with a similar situation in the past. What in the world is wrong with some people?!

Phyl, Cute Minion and true!! Well thought out artistic photo this morning.

jicaji, You have a friend in NJ with similar situation too!

The mean, nasty, unhappy, cunning, troublemaking people need to get a life and their heads straightened out!! Go away somewhere and be miserable with themselves ... all together in one group!! This has me fired up. Good Nice people should not have to deal with this crap.  >:(

Okay. Im' done. Off my soap box.  :-X But!! .....................

Yes I was in office today  The computer sysrm came up late ast night.  I worked late too but lmost all caught up.   Thanks Lori for the advice.   Funny you mentioned the restraining order.  I was thinking the same thing.  I am going to wait and see what happens over the weekend  If anything it will irk her that  I did it.  I wouldnt be surprised though if she does it to me  BUt I really dont care    I havent seen her today of course because I wasnt home all day. Next I am working from home.  LUckily I do actually work when home so wll only see her when I walk copper during lunch   No I wont talk to her anymore.  I havent spoken to her for  9 months wwhe nshe made the nasty comment. Yesterday was first time I said something to her.  But  am back to ignoring her.   I have to call the office to follow up on if they talked to her.  I doubt it.  These people suck  Thans for all the advise. I will follow. 


 I saw another rat.  hanging out in the front of the apartment.  More holes are coming up all around my apartment.  I may have to call the office tomorrow.  Most of the  squirrl food is gone.  I have the unshelled ones to take out and seed.  My poor little suirrels were waiting for me.  I almost cried.   UNtil I saw the rat amongst them.  THose damn rats are smart!!!

I love all th memes they are soooo true. 

Paulie today was a little better but I am exhausted.  ALl week I have been exhausted.

Hi LB, Good to hear the system's back up and that you're almost caught up. Maybe you'll get another commendation and $50.  :)

Why is it that you see that neighbor when you walk Copper at lunch? Is she always outside? Would be nice if you could change the time you walk Copper. Throw her off. Creep. Oh my gosh. Sorry. I'm kinda laughing at myself. That wasn't nice.

Oh Geesh to more holes around the apartment and a rat is brave enough to hang out with the squirrels. Awww to the squirrels when they saw you. You are doing what is best right now though.

Hmmmm you're still exhausted. You've had a lot on your mind and going on which cannot be lending to a good night's sleep. Since you're almost caught up at work I hope you can rest this weekend and catch up on sleep. Just stay inside and chill with Copper.

Take care Lori. Things will get better. Life's a roller coaster. You'll be having an 'up' in the future.

Glad to know work is back up and running and you don't have a back log any more.
I had a wierd thought last night...what if those rats are your neighbor's  'pets'.  some how she's made pets of those wild rodents. Spooky. Reminds me ot the 70s movie 'Willard'.
Very strange that their 'holes' appear to encircle your apartment. Very strange. Rats are very intelligent and cunning.
A haunting question, "Why isn't  or haven't the management gotten rid ot thos rats?   You might consider instead of ragging  the management,  just report the entire situation to the city health department. These rodents are truly a health and safety hazard. Personally, I think you've spent ample time going thru the managent. And , perhaps it's time to get some larger guns on the issue.
 You may gave stress-overload or the like.
Hope you have a better day and a nicer weekend.

He did go to the office to back me with th enasty neighbor.  LOL  Not sure of what happen other than they said they know all about it.  They also so htey are trapping the rats but they are mostly getting squirrels.  Not sure where they are trapping I havent seen any traps.  MY poor squireels still come running to me looking for their peanuts.  That really upsets me.   But I know 2 f my neighbors are there for me.  YOu guys hae been very supportive and I thank you all so much.  I may send the office an email on MOnday to follow up and hve it in writing.   But then I went to leve it alone.  I dont want to be a pest but I should really have it in writing   Love you ALL and THanks!!!

jicaji, Well now you did it again! Made me hungry for the cake you made. Sounds yummy and yes good day for it. You used to make me hungry for chocolate cake you made during the pandemic. So much so I bought chocolate cupcakes! Lol

Same for me having put off making appointments due from last year and early Spring!! Couple days ago I scheduled routine bloodwork that's overdue. This week will schedule long overdue eye appt. Two others to schedule yet. One is a Dexascan requested by Dr last December. That's an easy one it's just scheduling it. Blah. The last is one I'm not looking forward to scheduling but I figure just do it and get it done. It's been 10 years since last one. Can you or anyone guess what this lovely appt is for?  ::)

Accomplishing appointments used to be much easier when the Dr office scheduled then notified you of date and time to veryify. Boom. Done. Big mistake leaving scheduling to me.  ;D

jicaji I've never heard of choco-chip crumb cake. Suppose it's just a crumb cake w/ choco chips? Or...?
Paullie Suppose I can guess.  :-\

jicaji, Well now you did it again! Made me hungry for the cake you made. Sounds yummy and yes good day for it. You used to make me hungry for chocolate cake you made during the pandemic. So much so I bought chocolate cupcakes! Lol

Same for me having put off making appointments due from last year and early Spring!! Couple days ago I scheduled routine bloodwork that's overdue. This week will schedule long overdue eye appt. Two others to schedule yet. One is a Dexascan requested by Dr last December. That's an easy one it's just scheduling it. Blah. The last is one I'm not looking forward to scheduling but I figure just do it and get it done. It's been 10 years since last one. Can you or anyone guess what this lovely appt is for?  ::)

Accomplishing appointments used to be much easier when the Dr office scheduled then notified you of date and time to veryify. Boom. Done. Big mistake leaving scheduling to me.  ;D

I agree to #1 too definitely.

10 years?  OOOh OOOH OOOh, I know, I know.  I have to go every 5 years....Ugh  I'm overdue for my bloodwork from last year and mammo which was due in Feb.

Cake came out so good.  I cheated and used a yellow cake mix, made delicious big crumbs on top and folded in choc chips  I use buttermilk in the mix instead of water.  Comes out so much better.

SED everyone.

jicaji, Oh my gosh you have me lol with OOh OooH Iknow I know. LOL Oh wow you have to go every 5 years. God bless you.
Make your overdue appointments I suggest for the reason I'm doing mine ... with the Delta variant going around more we don't want to get caught up in things getting worse or closing down again. I doubt that will happen but better safe than sorry I think. Just a suggestion.

Your cake sounds delicious with the way you made it!!!

SED to you too.

Phyl, Yep you guessed right.

LB, Good for you keeping up with your appointments. Darn about your heel. Do I remember correctly a bone spur? Maybe not.
Very nice that today was pleasant for you. You needed that.
Copper will definitely be happy having his mom working from home this week.  :)

My day perked up this afternoon when my other daughter, husband and youngest granddaughter stopped by for a nice long visit. We ordered out for dinner then Gracie 6 1/2 took her shower here and washed hair so they could stay longer and not have to leave sooner since they live a bit of a drive from here. When they got home she just needed fresh pajamas. I had other items in her drawer in her bedroom here but we haven't had a sleepover since just before pandemic began and she's grown out of her clothes I have here. We do have a sleepover planned for early August. She goes to STEM classes daily at her local school Mon thru Fri. She'll be in 1st grade this year. She's smart as a whip too and hilarious.

Wishing everyone a pleasant night with a restful sleep.
Take care.

Okay to bone spur. Ouch. And that's right! arthritis too. Good to shorter walks with Copper especially in the heat.
What about when you work in the office? Do you still have a bit of a walk from where you park?

Wow. Busy day for me and I just came to say good night when I read today's latest posts. Oh my heavens!

True some people like squirrels and other wild life and some do not. I can only speak for myself but I like and feed squirrels in my yard (some squirrels take peanuts from my fingers) and feed birds, rabbits, ground hogs, deer for years and recently foxes. I put out enough of different things including plenty of birdbaths and ground water for all to share. That's just me.

I understand others don't like particular wildlife due to the damage they can cause. One of my neighbors had a squirrel issue on the side of their house under their roof by soffit. We (me/husband) did too but was minor and dealt with it and come up with a solution. We figured animals do what wildlife animals do and we/humans deal with it and luckily we found a solution. Agreed the damage mentioned to someone's roof was excessive.

Ladies, I say people can agree to disagree. Bottom line. Everyone involved shared their opinion.
It's unfortunate anyone was reported and I hope there are no repercussions from it for anyone.
Let's move on from anger and related comments. Take a deep breath.

On that note something interesting tonight.  :) After filling the birdbaths with fresh water and putting out birdseed and other goodies to my surprise a young buck deer came walking into the yard. They love birdseed I found out a few years ago and grapes from our arbor and the raspberries too. I was smiling from ear to ear.  ;D

Take care everyone.

Geez I really slept in this morning to 9am. I was up later than usual. I watched one of my favorite movies. Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts.  I can always watch this movie. Soooo good.

LB, Nice you're working from home this week if you have the heat that my area is having. You probably are. Have you seen that neighbor lady lately while walking Copper?

All 3 quotes are good.

jicaji, I know you enjoy your wildlife. That's right! Chipmunks too. They come onto your porch or deck, correct?
I've got chipmunks here too. They eat birdseed from feeding area then scamper into raspberry patch. The little buggers are nibbling on the two low growing tomatoes. They can have the low ones if they leave the upper ones alone.

Phyl, Darn it to construction. Progress right?! Not! Construction and widespread building of new developments is what's disturbing lots of the wildlife in my area. Poor things.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Geez LB, You have your hands full with your complex management for sure.

I remember your South Jersey townhouse and it's nice fenced in back yard. You had a pretty tree that a robin nested in one year too. You had your own driveway in front of your house too if I remember correctly. Sorry I don't mean to make you more sad but it was a nice place for sure.

Awesome bribe you got your boss to agree to! Good for you!! See? You're no sucker.  ;)

Nope you're not a complainer either. We all have or had at least one person in the workplace that was annoying. Sometimes more than one!!

Oh! I forgot to mention this morning I heard a Bluebird singing. My BB family has a strange habit. They arrive in November and stay through late Spring then move on for some reason. There's usually 5 to 7 together. Maybe with all the high heat and lack of water in some regions they thought to return here with multiple birdbaths, suet they like and plenty dried mealworms too. Will be interesting going forward or maybe that was just a tease. lol

Sorry to hear you don't have you cable tv in your bedroom. That stinks. IMHO watchng TV to doze off isn't a bad idea. That can get your mind off your troubles and make it easier to sleep. Glad you saw your doc. Hopefully, the boot will be a thing of the past.  Hope  you sleep well tonight.

You know I had one steal a granola bar or 4, I chalked it up as homage to the forest gods.

The VT pointy eared variety wait right until you walk up a very steep narrow trial and chatter right at your ear/eye level and scare the heck out of you. 

Back in the day they made backpacks with real leather tie down patches on them.

Was observing Grizzly Bears in the high country of Yellowstone at the time.

We always assumed it was the squirrels noshing on the salty leather, nope, Marmots.

So we got on marmot time and followed them.

Long story short  https://www.yellowstonepark.com/things-to-do/wildlife/bears-eat-moths-in-august/

Moral of this critter saga, never equate a suburban critter to a truly wild one.

Sometimes they lead you to bigger things.

Hi jicaji and Phyl

Busy morning here with curb side pick up for my youngest granddaughter's back to school sneakers. One pair is sooo cool!
Then another errand where hubby and I bought more than we had intended to.  ::) That's always fun though.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day.

All 3 quotes are very good today. Good job LB.




I dont know Paulie, I need voices. LOL  I already have a fan going.   LOL I just down loaded xfinity stream on my notepad and cel lphone I will use one of them tonight and tomorrow night  I guess it' listening to the conversations on tv mkes me frget my mind to wonder and think about my issues.  LOL   I think I have n app that has sounds of nature like the woods, thunderstorms water.  I can try that s well.  Yes slow day at work today I had time to check in here.  Oh I got to the foot dr about my heel tonight.  I hope I can stop wearing the boot.   I did wear for 2weeks straight but then took a week off it started hurting again so I wore it this week.  LOL
LB, Listening to voices and conversations to lighten ones mood and distract from thinking about other things makes sense.

What did your foot dr say at your appointment?

Good Afternoon  :)

Phyl, "Rosie" my Rose of Sharon is doing good! New branches sprouting and she's in full bloom with pretty deep pink flowers.
She's like an optical illusion. From one view she looks straight but from another angle she's really leaning but I have two strong cords around Y trunks tied to metal clamps in ground. So far so good.

jicaji, You definitely love your squirrels and chipmunks. Lol

BL, Didn't know that was a VT pointy eared squirrel. Many varieties apparently. I had to google Marmot. Definitely much larger. Observing Grizzly Bears must keep you on your toes!

LB, Hope you're having a good work day.

Wishing all a pleasant day.

My neck of the woods is in a sever storm threat today with elevated risk for high winds and possible tornado. Time will tell. Sometimes storms break apart as the move west over the mountains.  If not this will be a test for Rosie!!

Take care.

Sorry  delay on quotes. I had to  go into work this morning.  I made a deal with my boss though!!! LOL He was working from home and the girl in office cant handle th ewor that needs to be done in office he asked if I could come in.  SO I said I would if I get to go home after the  work was done in office and I will then continue to work from home.  Deal made !!!  he agreed!!! LOL I left the office at 10:50 am and woked the rest of the day home. 

No more boot.  I have wedges to put in my shoe now but I have to wear my sneakes since they are elevated as well  SO if I have shes that have a wedge/height to it. I can wear them.  I am also going to try laser treatment.  and he prescribed PT.  Now I need to fine  a place.   I dnt know of who he recmmended .  I  will go to my towns fb page and ask for recmmendations to get ones more locals. I know htere are a few locally.  I am in no rush!!!

WE are expecting sever storms tonight. We are already in a tornado watch .  I have candles lit already in case power goes out. 

Cable guy is coming tomorrow morning between 730-900 to replace my box.   

Guess what they are working on my neighbors AC unit. I think.  THey are in the shed outside of his apartment  th onlt thing is I dont remmeber thm making  so much noice hen they worked on mine... LOL I wnder the rats eatng the wires.    hmmmmmmm  I think they were working on the neighbors upstairs as welll.   I saw maintence in his apartment ysterday  I still havent heard back from management on what they are doing.  I keep filling up the  holes and the rats keep digging them back up.  I know have 5 holes around the bush and there is another whoe by my neighbor as welll.  I'll send another email  I guess.  My rent goes up this month.  I can tell them I wont pay the increase until I see progress of the rat situation...   hmmmmmm   I dont wnat to be a bitch but thye need to do something..    I think I have been patient enough . Had it been a month ???

Here is my email I just sent to the property manager. I think good not nasty   LOL 


Any updates??   I have been kind of monitoring my area this week  while walking  my dog  since I am now aware ther eis a rat issue and  every time I fill a hold the rats dig it right back up.  I now have multiple holes (about 5 holes around my back bush) They are going into the green box that is outside of my aprtment as well.  I believe that is the cable box  I also noticed there is another whole making it 2 by my neghbors  walkway in the back by  apartmentst c/d  a hole on each  sides of the walkway going toward  the upstairs aprtment  back door.    Also while walking the dog I saw a rat run across the walkway of  aparment building 10.  Thats a little ways from me.  SO this may bebecoing a bigger issue.  I am just concerned since this can lead into a health issue.   Thanks

Lori

LB, A good deal you made with your boss and awesome that you left the office at 10:50AM!!

Yay no more boot! You gave that thing the boot! Thumbs up!

How did your area do with the weather? Good I hope. I got a bit of rain here then the rest moved north and some south. Mountains split up the storm again.

Good the cable guy comes tomorrow morning and lucky you'll be working from home.

Sounds like the rodents got to your neighbor's A/C cables. Why in the world is your complex management dragging their feet?!!

Your email to them sounds good. You're definitely doing all that you can that's for sure.

Have you been sleeping any better?

Paulie-good news on 'Rosie' . Think you have her well secured.

jicaji- how are your 'critters' doing?  YOu surviving the crazy weather?

 LB-  Sleeping okay?   How was  your weather last night?  As predicted or better ? A clever deal w/your boss and your left work before 12N  ;)  Inspirations  are all good. I think that your letter to management is  well done. Nice way you worked in the 'idea' of the health department with out saying so! This was tactful and very non threatening.   Congrats on the boot removal. The PT isn't a bad idea.  There's 'somethng' that's drawing those rats  that causes me to wonder if their nest isn't in your building.  Yep. Wouldn't be surprized if the rats caused the A/C problems.

Good Morning  JUst lots of rain last night some thunder not so bad.  I got a few reommendations  so now I will research the companies this weekend for PT  The little wedges in shoes are quite comfortable.  Oh I get full blood workup tomorrow for my surgeon they do yj once a year to make sure I am getting the the right vitamins and nutrients. very thorough .  MY company went back to having to wear maskc even if vaccinted.   I have never stopped wearing my mask their.  To many people there havent gotten vaccinated and refuse.   I wonder if thy will make it manatory like other companies.  I am not sure if I agree with that   I am mixed feelings.   NYC is only allowing vaccinated people to concerts or maybe it's just theone concert coming up. LOL  I need to learn to pay better attention to the news.  LOL

Good Morning  :)

LB, Good that the worst part of storm didn't hit your area. Two counties east of me got hit by nasty tornado. No casualties. Good!

Good to PT recommendations. Very good wedges are comfortable. Excellent to your bloodwork tomorrow. Your Dr sounds very thorough and you too for complying.

I think it's good your company is mandating all wear masks again. According to the news this morning the new variant spreads more easily than chicken pox and common cold. Wow. Best to be safe than sorry for sure! TGIF for you.

Phyl, Yep so far so good with Rosie.

jicaji, Did you get heavy rain or nastier weather? Hope not.

All quotes are good again today.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Hi Cherrios...

LB- relieved to hear that the worst of storm didn't hit you.  Hoping for a good result on blood tomorrow.   Inspirations are all good. Fridays are good and here's to a pleasent weekend for you/Copper.  Oh...What breed is Copper?
Paulie/jicaji- have a good TGIF and weekend
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: LBLNJ0668 on July 30, 2021, 03:06:37 PM
Phyl  Copper is a stubborn Bassett Hound!!!   Boy is he stubborn..  Definiltly not goofy like I thought htey were  LOL   Still havent heard back from property anager I will give them a week (I work in office next week) I will then send email that I will be call the health department. If I see nothing is done  I am getting mad now.... I will give that she may be off today.....  I am going to keep filling up the holes  they make and see if these rats open them back up.   LOL

Oh my neighbor is keeping very quiet doesnt come out. I saw here come out once to throw out garbage.  I usulally see here more often doing laundry et c.  But it coud be a timing issue   ALso her husband has been taking the car to work (they only have 1 car) I think she has been driving him to work every mornign cause the car is always around during the day (when I work from home, I notice) This week it hasnt been there. 
Title: Re: Cheers 2021

Phyl, TGIF and a good weekend to you too. Today's been a busy one for me getting outside stuff done. Pleasant with the lower temps and really nice breeze blowing.
Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: Phyl on July 31, 2021, 02:06:44 AM
LB a loveable bassett hound.  Those dogs look wise.  I did a quick read up and the article stresses stubborness as well as clevernesws. Their sniffers are second only to Blood hounds.
Wow it sounds like you're up against your neighbor/hubby if they co ordinate leaveing her the car with you working from home. Are they 'concerned' about 'something?  LOL Hope you get some rest . Pats to Copper   Agree w/ paulie giving managementr a week   before calling the city is good.
Paulie  we have indoor stuff to get done. New hinges and door knobs in some rooms so the hardaware coordinates, clean baseboards and repaint them, tirm work.  Yeah. That's a good time to work outside.

They need to work on getting rif of th erats.  I told my neighbor if they dont I'll go back to feeding the birds and squerrels he siad the rats wil lcome back.  I said, whats the difference they are still here  and they are not doing anything. 

Here the recipe.  Jacaji.. YOu have been trying my recipes.  My nutritionist said you can use cool whip as well instead of rocotta cheese.  I think I may do 1/2 with ricotta and 1/2 with cool whip LOL

Hi jicaji

I'm rushing a bit. I enrolled my youngest 6 yr old granddaughter in swim classes and they begin this morning the tomorrow and Wed mornings. And it will be sleepover time! Haven't had a sleepover with any grands for over a year. She's full of energy so I'm hoping I have the energy to keep up for full days. Will be nice to see her snuggled in and sleeping here.

I did a quick read of posts just now. Hope I'm not forgetting something.
Gotta go.

  I went to Backyard Birds.com and bought that. It's designed for a tree. But,  willow  is  down the  hill and because of my knees and vertigo I can't easily make it down there. Can't see the little buggers  :-*  either.  Chipmunks are my fave, too.
No the cat in the picture isn't my Maggie.  She's my avatar.
We lost Mike to cancer of the carina (juncture of treachea and bronchial branch) about 5+ yrs ago. She's the last of 'The Duo' of Mike and Maggie. It will be a killer when ever I' loose' her.


This is my little green-eyed girl, 2020. In human years she's 90+ years old. According to our vet.

Timing on your deposit was perfect.

Good Morning  :)

Has been an awesome and busy week. My granddaughter arrived Monday morning and ended up staying all week until last evening. She/we had a blast together. She (6 yrs) kept me busy from the moment she woke up till she went to bed.  ;D After asleep I got to work doing things I hadn't had time for during the day around house etc.

And!!!! Drum Roll! The refrigerator I ordered June 25 is being delivered today!!!  ;D

I'll come back later to read past posts I've missed. I have to finish cleaning out the loaner fridge we were given, wipe it etc. Have to put cold items in big cooler and frozen into deep freezer.

Gotta go. Wishing all a pleasant day.

Good Evening  TGIF!!!!  Nothing really new here.   I  filled up the rat holes again to see if they are sill around...yup dig them right up.  SO now I decide to send email to management to follow u o nth elast 2 mails they didnt respond If I should ing up the health department or should I just call without letting them know.  My coworker says if I give them warning they may ive me a had ime down the road. my arguement was they probably will know it's me anyway. So I am undecided in what to do .  But something needs to be done.

I lurk & read the 'Cheers' everyday.

LB I totally agree with Phyl it's time to let this sleeping dog lie.

The powers that be are well aware of the situation. 
Time to bow out gracefully knowing you did all you can do "to help fix the situation".   8)

Let the whole situation die down so you don't end up looking like a PIA.

Pip & I had the exact same scenario play out 2 Springs ago.
We live in a small (24 unit) condo complex in NJ.
A very natural wooded area considering all that is so urban around us.
 
Awesome forest critters do visit right outside of our window frequently.

We are very clean and careful on the appropriate feeding of our Suburban outdoor critters.

The HOA sent out a message to stop feeding any/all outdoor wildlife or face stiff fines.
We took down all of the bird/suit feeders and zipped it.

Our bird bath stayed right where it was, right next to that naturally occurring fine grit dirt bath location.
We refuse to deny outdoor moisture to wildlife in times of dry
Right in front of Bucky.

3rd image, not more than 20' away, he saw me take his picture from inside, no flash, closed the blinds we did.
_ Still resting there this early light _
Cool as shit that he knows we are of no threat to him ..  8)
Pip & I want to go outside and give him hugs and kisses knowing better for him.

We got a nasty gram about the bird bath too due to Mosquito larvae.
Pardon my French, but , Fu.
Our birdbath is cleaned and has fresh running (solar powered) water flowing through it daily.

We zipped our mouths and bit our tongues for a season.

Back to just as before ... Now 08/07/21 ...
I guess we should clean these windows & screens ay'  :-[

~ This old fart buck comes around dutifully once a year for a couple of days every year to say hello. ~
Where he comes from and where he goes to no one knows and no one asks.  8)

Pip & I's jaws just drop every time we have had the great privilege of beholding his magnificence since 2016.
Safe travels big guy.  :-*

A Very Wise suburban not connected forested area traveling man he has to be to have avoided all of the major roads and highways here about.   :o

Paulie, I am home. I contacte dthe board of helth this morning they called back and will be stopping by tomorrow. They told me to also reach out to the management company as well.   SO I did.   we'll see what happens.  This is what I wrote   


I havent heard back from you in regards to the rats.  The rats are still around so I  just wanted to let you know that I contacted the Board of health to see what they can do.  Maybe they can come up with some suggesions .  They said they will stop by some time tomorrow. 
Title: Re: Cheers 2021

Since I wasn't on forum a few days last week I just finished reading back on past posts.

BrokenLug, Wow! That's one handsome buck!!
I can't find Phyl's post that you agree with about letting sleeping dogs lie?

LB, Oh! Okay you work from home this week. Good then you don't have to go out in the high temps this week like going into and out of work place.
 
Oh wow! You really did contact the Board of Health .. then management too. Oh brother. I'd lay low and stay in my apartment tomorrow.
One thing for sure is the rodent problem should be resolved now.

jicaji, Are you having the high temps up in your area?

I don't see any posts from Phyl.

Miss Baz. Maybe she'll pop in sometime.

Well back to work .....



Title: Re: Cheers 2021
Post by: LBLNJ0668 on August 09, 2021, 04:29:34 PM
 Pauii I sure did call them!!!  I looked up the history.  My first service call about the rats ws JUly 5  I spoke with the property manager. They are such liars.  She said she was waiting to hear fro the head of maintence and he said he has traps alll over.  I asked where? I dont see any, I walk my dog all of the development daily and the only bait tap I see is the one behind my house which needs mre than one and told her again about the hoes down th down road and across by the other aparment  I also told her I busy the holes to see if they wil dig up the hoes again and they do , thats how I know they are still around. She tol me not to so tht it's dangerous BS. THan why arent they rushing to get the job done if these rats are so dangerous. 

She said the maintnce dept checks the traps daily and hadd poison to the bait trap daily.  I to her I ork from home  and i havent seen anyone come by to check the bait trap let alone fill it.  and said there needs to be more.  SHe said their extertimator is oming wednesday and they will talk to them about it then. 

The founny thing is the dept of ealth knows of the aparrtment complex and asked if I was one of the apartment along the fence line (on the other side of the fence is a strip mall) because there woul dbe rats there. I told her nope.  I do not live in that area.  It's down aways from me.  I do walk by that aread.  I also told her the holes are right outside of my apartmnt.  I am looking forward to talking to them  tomorrow.   LOL

Property manager said she will talk to maintence to add more baits. so far nothing   I will fill up the holes again once dept of health comes by  :P   :P :P :P

Post by: paulie on August 09, 2021, 08:12:07 PM
Well LB I will say this. You are one determined woman! Understandably so too. It's been over a month since you first reported this and like you said you walk Copper all over the complex and you don't see any traps.

It's interesting the Dept of Health asked about another area of your complex. And if rats are at the strip mall nearby that could very well be the reason for the infestation at your area of the complex.

I have to agree with you that by this time something has to be done about this situation or it will only get worse.

Ya know what? I'd skip the filling of the holes because it's apparently a waste of time and you're outnumbered. With the Dept of Health more involved now legally they must do something due to health risks.

Will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow and afterwards.

Propertty manager is trying to say oyhe fits the feeding of the wild life.  It may be a contributation ut I have been feeding the wildlife for 3-1/2 years and the rats just started coming. There is a wooded buffer in between the strip mall and creek like area around that same area so yes I think they came from there.   Yes when I believe in something strongley I become determined..  LOL  oh and my biggest pet peeve is when someone lies and I think the property manager is  a damn liar!!!! sorry so harsh.  lol

Paulie.....I have to get my blood work done....a year overdue....my mammogram.....over a year overdue.....Dentist....Ugh  and the icing on the cake, colonoscopy next month .....we'll see.  So much easier on my mind NOT to do it.   

LB....I would think once the Dept of Health gets involved with rat infestation, something would have to be done, legally. 

Miserably hot weather coming the next few days here.  If I still lived on L.I. I'd be by the ocean for sure.  Miss the ocean terribly.

jicaji, You too! Lol We're in the same boat with appointments. The long pandemic year of not going anywhere made us lazy on making appointments I think.  ;) As you know I got one out of the way today. Some others are scheduled and two more to schedule.  ::) Oh I just remembered I have dental appt next week.

Miserable hot weather here too. It started today. Next 3 days high 90s with 3 digit heat index 100 - 104. Definitely felt like it today. I like warm summer weather but this is too hot I agree.

I agree with jicaji. Legally the county dept. has to respond due to legalities.

LB, Yes you did mention recently you're ready for winter. Lol I agree Fall is an awesome time. You and Copper be careful in the high heat.

Do you still like Monarch Butterflies? I remember years ago how much you did. When I see one fluttering around my gardens I think of you.

#1 but all quotes are good ones.

jicaji, I remember how much you love the beach! How are your "little fairies"?


Well I was way off on the heat index in my area today. This morning it was updated to 105 to 110 today. High dew point too. This is way too crazy hot.
A storm rolled through my area yesterday. Wow to heavy downpours. Needed the rain though and I didn't have to water gardens and planters.  ;D

Wishing you each a pleasant day. Take care.

yes Paulie I still love the monarch butterflies.  I dont see  anymore.  The squirrels are still coming by waiting for food.  Not so many  Here are some photos I got. The group shot is when I still feed them.  I have a bunch of squirrel phoots from when I lived down in south Jersey.  I hould go through and post soem every once in a while . The camera I used was my good camera and not cell phone.  better shots.

I left another message with the ard of helth. Why do I feel like I am being blown off.  I will call again   

  I go to the orthopedic tomorrow  for my knees hoping to get a corisone shot this time.  I hope I odnt have to wait for approval.  I am also going to talk to him about my foot/heel. I started exercising this weekend and I think the knees are feeling a tiny bit better.  just tiny bit

LB....A winter party sounds good to me.  It's going to be in the 90's the next couple of days.  Ugh.  My A/C has been on now non- stop.  Do NOT want to see the next elec. bill.

I have a great picture of "my" squirrel eating a strawberry I put out for her.  If I can post a picture of her, I will.  I seem to have a problem posting any pictures

LB, Your group photo of you feeding squirrels shows a group of very happy squirrels! Lol  I really did laugh. Yes definitely post some photos from South Jersey. I loved your backyard there.

Maybe the Dept of Health is overwhelmed with projects and understaffed would not surprise me. Everyone is understaffed these days.

Good luck with your orthopedic appointment tomorrow. Really good that your knees are feeling a bit better since exercising your foot/heel. It's all connected.

jicaji, I knew your fairies were still there.  :) Same here with more frequent trips and staying longer at feeders. Yes stocking up for next month. Happy and sad at the same time. We don't like to see them leave.

You have a picture of your squirrel eating a strawberry!! I'm laughing. Definitely post pic if you can. I always make sure the photo has JPG I think it is under it so you know it will post.

Today was a really long busy day for me and husband then me and my two oldest granddaughters went shopping then I took my oldest granddaughter to her 9th grade orientation at new high school. Her dad/my oldest son isn't feeling well so I got to go with her with a very proud smile. Anyway, long day and busy evening/night.

I think I am making progress with the rat issue...   I posted about the lack of repsonse on my township fb page  about the property manger and board of health.  A councilman from the town reached out to me and saif he will talk to the mayor.  fingers crossed.     He gave me his cell number too.  Wow.  I idnt think that will ever happen  . 

It's cooler here today but still humid.  2 more months until fall.  Can't wait!!!

I'm not surprised the councilman reached out to you.  God forbid someone gets bitten or sick from a bite or whatever, there's a looming
law suit for not properly taking care of the problem.

OMG it's getting better someone who works for a local online newspaper reached out to me as well.  Someone else reached out giving me info in how I can break my lease without consequesnces. (to make long story short)   Things wil be interesting in the next week or so.  I work in the offic enext week which may be a good thing.  All that I have done and response I got back surprises me....   I usually just ignore everything and hope for the best.   

hmmm   I am a littl enervous....   I dont think anyone realizes how close these rats are iving to my apartment.  Oh I also sent the email  between mea nd the property manager about the rat issue and their letter about feeding the anials to the perosn who woks at the local online news.   Did I every say how I hat being ignored and lied to.....

Oh my heavens Lori!! A local newspaper AND someone giving you info on how you can break your lease without consequences?!!

The way things are going in your favor I suggest you look to see what condos and apartments might be available now since your last search. God and His universe works in mysterious ways. You just might end up thanking the rodents. There just might be a new residence with your name on it waiting for you to find it.

I most definitely believe you are no one to be ignored or lied to obviously. No way.

I had a pleasant and long day. One of my daughter's and a very long time friend of the family who is now her beau came by for a nice visit. These two have supported each other with their individual ups and downs in life through the years and to now see them having gone full circle and being together is beyond awesome.

I then went back to school shopping with my two oldest granddaughters .. 14 and 12. The changes I see in them since our over a year separation due to last year is mind boggling. They are definitely coming "into their own." The 14 yr old is who I went to 9th grade orientation to earlier this week due to my son not feeling good.

I didn't mention it but we thought he had covid. He was fully vaccinated months ago. He is immune compromised with RA.  His Dr told him he had every symptom ... fevers to 104, congestion, horrible headache, sweating so much he'd never experienced, sore throat and the worst aches he'd ever had he said. I got him and OTC test kit. Negative. He went and had testing done officially too. Results yesterday finally and negative. We haven't a clue what it was but he is now slowly beginning to feel better. Thank you God. My granddaughters will be getting the vaccine shot too.

Anyway, fun shopping with granddaughters then we stopped and had a snack (with masks on the entire time) then I took them home.
We're planning a sleepover this week.

A great day .. and with lots of walking ... and I'm worn out. Lol
That being said I wish all a pleasant night. SED

Hi   it's been a long day. The reporter came by took videos of the area. I showed all the holes.  He still will be contacting more people.  etc.  th ebd of health person responded to the councelent and she supposely stopped by today and of ourse saw the ole peanuts on the ground . and said something I always was upfront nd sai I have fed the birds and squirrles. THose shells are from 2 months ago. They dont just disappear.  Have I mentioned I hate liars. Oh they did add another bait trap and put a cone over one of the holes.  and cover some of the holes up by my area.   They will be dug up by tomorrow.  we'll see what happens

LB, The reporter took videos! And he's contacting more people. Wow.  Is this going to be on your local news?

I'm sure you were up front and said you used to feed birds and squirrels. Good. Oh yea you've mentioned you don't like liars.

Agreed putting cones over the holes will just cause them to dig underground to come up in another area. It's hard to hold back nature that's a definite.

Have you been looking for another place since someone explained how you can break your lease legally?

It's been a long and busy day at my end too. I hope you sleep good tonight. I'm darned sure I will.  :)

LB, I hope you're having a good day.

jicaji, Whoa! The largest hummingbird I've seen came to one of my feeders today. There's one large one that comes here regularly but the one I saw this morning looked larger length/height wise. Unless it's the regular one that's been plumping up to migrate but that wouldn't increase it's size length wise. Hope this makes sense.

I'm going to get my two oldest granddaughters for a long awaited and overdue sleepover. Should be fun.

Take care all.

Paulie, my hummingbirds are looking bigger to me as well. I'm thinking they're plumping up for their long trip for the winter...

Have a great time with your granddaughters.

jicaji, You too. I agree. They are definitely plumping up now for long journey. Today was the same with busy feeders and the one that comes to my front window is hilarious. I have grids in the front big window where I have feeder on with suction cups. She stops and looks in every square window across the window and looks inside to the living room .. drinks some nectar .. then back to looking in all across the large window. So cute. I hope she's not saying good bye already.

LB, Oh okay. An online newspaper. When you said reporter took videos I thought maybe he interviewed you and you would be on the local TV news.
It looks like the cones were markers for the workers to know where to fill the holes. The problem is they'll probably burrow over and come up in another area maybe? Holding back nature is not easy.

LB, Hang in there. TGIF soon for you. The rain you'll be getting is from the remnants of tropical storm Fred. Good 'ol Fred passed through my area this afternoon and this evening. Holy storms ... heavy rains and lots of lightening and thunder and very strong winds. Torrential downpours. Flooded roads and a city nearby got 5 inches of rain. At one of my daughter's home she said the lightening strike and thunder was so loud her house shook and the bath items fell off the bathtub and shower walls. Geesh.

I hope your rainfall and winds aren't bad.

Hi Everyone.  Fred came through here in the  middle of night. Still humid. no sign of rats today I burried ne of the holes didnt open yet but sometimes it takes a few days. I will  fill up th other holes this weekend to see what happens.   Te holes by the cones they filled it up with rocks as well.  I am going to ask if they can do something like that by me if it looks to work .  suppose to be a rainy weekend I think fro Henry

Good Morning,

LB, It sounds like Fred passing through your area didn't cause damage. That's good. Very good no sign of rats yesterday.

jicaji, It looks like the hurricane coming up the coast will be heading to your state. Stay safe and baton down the hatches if it does.

jicaji, Stay safe and be careful. True about your trees. I wonder if this will cause the Hummingbirds to migrate sooner since nature can sense changes in barometric pressure etc. Maybe not. I always worry about them during heavy migration with hurricanes that occur in the Gulf Coast during that time.

When is the hurricane or outer parts of it arriving in your area?

LB, Your TGIF!!!!! made me laugh. Sounds like you really needed today!! Enjoy having off Monday. Don't beat yourself up too much about being slack the last month. I bet your Dr and nutritionist will say the same and offer suggestions getting back on track. You've had a busy week about not being as consistent with exercise. You've been very structured and disciplined thus far so you'll get back on tract.

LB  Paulie..Storm should appear here in force around 2p tomorrow, according to reports. It's reported we are pretty much at high risk here.  I was watching an episode of a scary series last night and all of a sudden my phone sounded an alarm alerting communities here of the upcoming storm.  I think I jumped about a foot off the sofa LOL.

Good Afternoon  :)

jicaji, Stay safe with the storm tomorrow afternoon. It sounds like it might get rough. I'm sure you did jump high when you phone warning of storm went off!!  I agree the warnings our phones give us out of the blue startle us but you were watching a scary show at the time too!!

LB, 2 miles away isn't far so you stay safe too. Good to you liking your hair. Did you get much trimmed or cut from the bottom?

Geesh to the rats digging up through the gravel already. It's hard to hold back good 'ol mother nature. These little buggers are determined.

One of my daughters came by for a nice visit this morning. Then I got some outside work done then some laundry and other "stuff". We always have something to do right? Lol Well more things to do around here so I best get back at it. Oh! The tomatoes are ripening nicely now. The taste of a home grown tomato can't be beat. Bell Peppers and Jalapenos have been ripening nicely too.

Rosie my Rose of Sharon tree withstood the high winds the other day. She's a survivor.  :)

Hi jicaji, Your friendship with your long time best friend is awesome. She definitely sounds like a Godsend to you. You are very lucky.

My youngest 6 year old granddaughter came here yesterday morning for a sleepover. Was just a one nighter this time. Oh my heavens she keeps me on my toes and busy. Lol And her sense of humor is priceless. She went home earlier and I'm missing her already.

Tomorrow is a busy day for hubby and me then Wednesday I'm taking my oldest granddaughter 14 years for a hair trim. Her hair is as long as mine when I got married and I was almost sitting on it then. For me it was the style back in the early 70s. Long and straight. She has the same hair and she inherited the thick hair too.

Well all the new dolls and doll clothes and other things have been cleaned up and Gracie helped tidying up her bedroom before she went home. I'm ready to relax.

I wish all a pleasant relaxing night.  Tomorrow is a new day and we'll make it a good one.  :)
