Hi!  ;D  Holy mud it's been a busy week. Birthdays, shopping, meals, parties. Having 3 family members birthdays in one week has always kept me busy. This year more so for some reason. This Sunday Father's Day and everyone coming again then I need a vacation. Lol

Quick update on daughter with lupus/diagnosed with Pericarditis. After strong injection of Prednisone in ER she was given an Rx to take for a week. It's a very high dose Pred so she hasn't been sleeping well but it's doing what it's supposed to and inflammation and heart rate much better. Prayers answered.

LB
, Sweet you had an interview with a competitor.
If you like the company you interviewed with better I hope you get it.
Interesting about this Wednesday's pharma co interview and getting a case study 30 minute prior to interview.
Keep us updated. You're definitely not letting any grass grow under your feet with interviews. Good for you!

jicaji, What's happening with your Impatience hanging basket and mom bird nest?
Congrats on your granddaughter' HS graduation. Very nice that the weather was perfect and you got good parking.
Did using a cane help?
Eating McDonald's in the car in parking lot before going to the fb field stands sounds like fun! I'm glad you had a pleasant and proud time.

Puff, How did the hot rod appointment go?
I'm hoping you've accomplished more in the yard and garden by now with weather cooperating better.
Nice that your handyman got some things done for you.
You made me laugh about your beautician seeing you in your natural beauty and your neighbors too. That's funny. Sometimes we just do what we gotta do with the way we're feeling. Sometimes when I have to run an errand and I definitely don't look my best is when I think I'm going to run into someone I know. That's when wearing a mask comes in handy. Lol
Good that you were able to get rid of your headband and resulting headaches. I agree they are a pain. I ended up wearing one during the lock down and salon closed. When I finally got to go in I said, "Cut and trim it good!" I'm sure we were all in that boat at that time.

LB, jicaji, Puff, How did you each of your areas do with the strong nasty storms that rolled through recently? My area got hit last night in PA. Geez the lightening was flashing everywhere and thunder sounded like mortars going off! Rain and winds hammered too.

Rosie my Rose of Sharon tree I rescued last summer is still tied
upright and full with new branches. One side still needs to fill out but not giving up yet.

Well I sound like a Chatty Kathy not having been here for a week. I'm going to squint after I post this because it's going to look long.  :)

Take care and SED.

Puff

You did get in a few (?) points and questions paulie No worries.  That's why we're here.

You asked jicaji about her use of "the cane" for graduation ceremony.  I first started using mine 2019 on a trip to Greece.  (Be forewarned Europe is not to be taken lightly by those with any walking issues.  It can be done, but be prepared.)  I purchased my first stick when Tony decided not to go with me.  Just for balance, comfort, and assistance I bought myself "my friend the stick".  Doesn't sound so old and a nuisance, more of an affectionate nic.

Also - No there was no storm problems in my area.  I'm actually about 15 miles south of tsk.  Made a BIG difference this storm.  She had a declared tornado (minor catagory 0 - never heard of that before?) winds of 85 and lots of damage.   That was just west of her about 5 miles.

As I said earlier - Chicago is a mega area, let's change that to a big area.  ::)  We can have more than 1 forecast going on simultaneously.

Seems petty to some with all the real problems going on - but I really do appreciate license plate input/ideas by Oldguy & Lilbro.  Kinda like a rock in your shoe.  LOL

Good Morning No storms here. It seems to be north of us.  Wait.... One morning we had thunderstorms. I think Thursday or maybe Wednesday. Who knows anymore!!! I am lucky I know today is Saturday. So did I tell you the power went out in the middle of my interview. We finished through a phone call.  I am so upset bout, I was really enjoying that interview. They made me feel comfortable.  So the 2 companies I interview I will take either but I think I want IFF more. Canes ...I used a cane I think for abut a year.  November 1 will be 2 years since I havent need one.  I did use it for a few hours 1 day recently.  They help  bu I dont like them

Puff, Good for you going to Greece on your own along with "your friend the stick". Sounds like a great adventure.

Good to no storms in your area. That's right you did mention the Chicago area in the past. Good that tsk wasn't affected by the declared tornado! I've never heard of a 0 category either.

Sounds like you need a new license plate on the hot rod. Good that you've gotten help on that.

LB, Good to no bad storms for you too. I'm with you remembering what day it is sometimes! No! You didn't mention the power going off during an interview. And one that you were enjoying too. Darn it! Was that the interview with IFF? Since you were so comfortable during the interview sounds like you knew a lot about what that were asking about. I hope you get the IFF since that's the one you're hoping for.

Good that you don't need the use of the cane any more.

How's Copper?

Awesome cooler weather today, very windy with no clouds and sunny. I mowed and was comfy with long jeans and a sweatshirt. Big difference from temp in 90s. Still need to do some yard work yet today.

Wishing all a pleasant evening. Take care.

Chilly but beautiful days here the last two days.  No big storms here, just some rain the other day and lots of wind today and yesterday.

LB,  Are the shots you got in your knee responsible for you NOT needing a cane anymore?  I got the gel shots and neither worked for me unfortunately.

LB, glad you felt comfortable in your interview.  Fingers crossed.

Paulie, well now that my impatiens plant is dead dead, I see no nest, no eggs, no moma bird,  no nothing.  Very strange.

SED everyone and a great week ahead.

WOW LB....100 pounds.  That's wonderful.
 
Now, a sad story....The little tiny birds died in my hanging plant.  I hadn't seen the mother for a few days and I looked into it today and saw they had died.  I am so upset.  I hadn't watered for awhile since I knew the nest was in there and saw the two little eggs, but I hardly ever saw the mom bird coming and going.  Just once I saw her a few days ago and it appeared she had something in her beak to feed the little ones, but then she just flew away.  I don't know if it was because she caught a glimpse of me, or realized they had died. I just feel terrible.  NO MORE HANGING PLANTS FOR ME FOR SURE.

We were out of town for a couple days and returned last evening.
