Title: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: Moonshot on February 24, 2010, 09:10:24 PM
SESSION 137 OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS!!!

Here is how we started:

Welcome, everyone to the very first meeting of the "OCD Support Group". (Obsessive Clay Disorder)

I am shy, so I walk slowly into the room and find a seat in the back. The meeting begins and there is a room full of claymaniacs. It is very quiet. I raise my hand very slowly. Pamela notices and asks, " Do you have something to share?" My knees are shaking, but I am able to finally get the words out.
"Hi. My name is Woodstock. And I suffer from OCD." The room erupts with applause. I hear so many things around me..."Welcome, Woodstock, what a great step to admit that!" "I do, too..." "We're all with you..."
And I knew immediately that I have come to the right place.

We all talk about it, and joke about it, but this can be a serious subject,too. I love Clay, but quite honestly, I have worried about why I spend SO much time listening to him, downloading everything..talking about him on-line , taping EVERY TV show . And more than anything, simply thinking about him night and day. He enters my thoughts in the middle of just about everything! What is going on???
I am a 50-year-old (yikes) wife and mother of three children aged 18, 21 and 23. I have a career and am involved in many things. Then somehow, Clay has entered the picture and I fear he has taken over more of my life than I care to admit.

I realized awhile back that I suffered from OCD. But it was hard to admit to anyone. My 18-year-old son kept telling me that I was obsessed, and after awhile, I began to think he was right. And I spent night and day wondering what was wrong with me. Why are my thoughts going to Clay in the middle of a a school lesson or a church sermon? Why can't I wait to get home and turn on a Clay CD or check out claymaniacs.com to get new info on Clay? If Clay was going to be on a TV station that I didn't get, I HAD to find someone to tape it for me. I was beginning to think I was losing my mind. REALLY!!!

Then I found claymaniacs. It has been wonderful for me to talk to you. The more I got to know you guys, the more I was able to let it all hang out. And what did I learn? I'm NOT the only one. There is something about this guy that grabs you and wraps around your heart, and you're hooked. You are NOT going crazy, I have come to learn after talking to so many of you. I get pms and e-mails from people after I have posted something I couldn't admit anywhere else, and I realize I'm not alone! And it has been a great comfort to me. It took a little while, but I now know that I'm OK. And I feel much better. Now, I am enjoying Clay SO MUCH MORE, because I am not worrying about myself.

Let me make this perfectly clear: I am not over my OCD! I still think about Clay all the time (24/7?) and listen to him sing(OMG) constantly, and download, and chat about him. But I no longer worry that there is something wrong with me. I know I am not alone. There is something so very special about this man. He is the whole package. Because I was able to feel better after admitting things to you guys here, I decided that this is a thread that is needed here. Here is your place to vent. Admit your feelings, or confess something that you have thought or done. It is our hope that by doing that, you will find out that it's OK and you will stop worrying about yourself, and now be able to enjoy Clay even more. I hope this is a place everyone can come back to as needed.

Rules, rules, rules.... Everyone must promise to be kind, respectful, non-judgemental, and supportive. (Easy for claymaniacs.) Again, this is your place to get something off your chest, or just admit your OCD and accept it. So, let the discussions begin!
Just for fun, if you join in the conversation, you then become an official charter member of the OCD Support Group, and can add that to your signature if you wish. I look forward to each and every one of your posts.
Woodstock
P.S. Please feel free to pm me.

That was the beginning of Session 1.

And now on to Session 137.  WHO WOULD EVER HAVE THOUGHT??? We are moving along. I am SO happy so many of you have stayed around for the long haul, and welcome each and every new friend here. I say WOW!!!!! Good times with good friends. That is what this is all about.

I am no longer including a detailed description of our Therapy Center (just pretend, for those of you that are new.) I will just say that we meet in a Cyber Cottage on a Street With No Name. We have to continue the THUD room, as it is such an important part of our therapy. So please feel free to frequent it as needed. For more details, please read a past thread.(Located in the Archives.) And Pepe did ask for a Cybermaid to come in once a month. These girls have always been high maintenance, but worth it.

As for the rules, these are to keep the place somewhere we all are proud to come to:
I will repeat the rules, because we now have 5!!!

YOU MUST BE: 1. kind 2. respectful 3. non-judgmental 4. supportive
AND 5. YOU MUST NEVER SAY THE "s" word. (sorry). No need to apologize for thoughts and feelings.

And I am going to take it upon myself to add a suggestion (one that many people make to me), but not make it a rule. It is your choice as your time allows. But I am going to say that if you don't have time PLEASE DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO KETCHUP !!! Jump in and say hi, tell us what is up in your Clay world, and have good conversation. Yes, you may miss someone's post, but we never want being here to be so time-consuming that it causes frustration, family problems, or a cause to drive you away. We never want ANYONE to feel they need to address each person. It is simply impossible and no one expects it anymore. If some people choose to do that, it is their choice, but simply not expected. We have grown so big, and happily so!!! So, let's just jump in, read one page behind, and enjoy the conversation. Not a rule!!!! Just something that has been suggested to me many times...

And our OCD pact: No hard feelings if someone doesn't mention you in their post. We are getting far too big for that to ever be a reality again, but we are blessed by many new friends. We are a happy group here. And we intend to keep it that way.

We are a PG thread, we are "family friendly", as Clay would see it, and we do welcome in friends of all ages. If the spirit moves you, and you feel your comments may not be within PG, Claymaniacs does have threads for this.  There is the Black Leather Pants thread and the Motor City Red Thong Mafia thread in Current Community Central, and the Adult Playground forum in Communities. Thank you for understanding this.

People want to have fun here, and we do, don't we??? Let it continue, but we welcome friends of all ages, so let us keep it PG.

So, WELCOME one and all to Session 137 of the OCD Support Group. I hope you are comfortable in our home away from home. Please feel free to join in and be a part of  warm and caring group.

Thanks for hanging around so much that we had to start Session 136.  May the session begin!!!

Love you guys,
Woodstock :bouncy X137

WELCOME TO SESSION 137!!! :ghug

May Session 137 be filled with friendship, sharing, and fun!!!! May this always remain a place to share our Claylove, and sometimes obsession.   :wink  May the path to our cottage remain a smooth one.  May past disagreements fade away and new memories and friendships be made. This is my wish for this, and for every session of the OCD Support Group.

JoAnn-
 I am brushing the girls as well and getting rid of their winter coats. Athough it feels like winter is not near over, they are starting to lose them. YAY for passing the dessert! I've been doing my best to do the same. When I weighed myself 6 days ago I had lost 9lbs! :bouncy I will weigh myself again tomorrow.

Frankie-
 :hugg I hope you guys have fun on your trip! Sounds very cool. Sorry I've been MIA. Have had quite a bit going on here.

Good Morning!

I am going to the Whitlock Club today.  The quartet is not playing so I will just be an observer of the program.  I will probably stay for lunch in the Tea Room.

Sharon,
My back was not too painful most of yesterday, but last evening and during the night, it did hurt.  I hate to keep taking the pain pills and I think they are making me a little nauseous.
I may call my doctor (internist) today and talk to his nurse and see if I should go in for an appointment. 
As always, love that hot chocolate with the mini marshmallows!!

Pepe,
As I said to Sharon, I may talk to my doctor's office and see about getting an appointment.  He may then send me for an x-ray.  Skip seems to think it will eventually go away, and he is someone who goes to the ER or doctor at the "drop of a hat."
I hope you have a good day today with Mark.  I believe you said he is staying until Saturday?

Frankie,
One of our best trips was years ago when we decided to go to Pensacola on the spur of the moment.  We had no dogs at the time, so just closed up the house and headed East!!  I think you will have fun on your trip!

Monica,
We've missed you!  Good to see you posting again!


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Thursday!  :hugs

Good Morning Everyone,


  Sharon- :wave Morning! I overslept(6:30am!) so I'll just reheat the coffee you left for me.  Love coffee any and every way!  Wait, take that back! THE ONLY COFFEE I DIDN'T LIKE WAS AT A BEDUWIN (SP?) IN JORDAN LAST YEAR!  It looked and tasted like they put twigs in it. :lmao  I might post a picture of the gentleman who made it for us too.

Monica--- :clap Way to go!  9 LBS  is great!  Keep up the great work.

Frankie----I saw the photo of the hotel you're going to.  What a beauty!  I would feel so relaxed there and be content to just sit  and watch the world pass by while drinking a cup of  refreshing tea.

CLAY NEWS---Clay was mentioned in our local newspaper today!  It stated that he is speaking at a G.Rights rally in Raleigh this weekend.  He wrote his own speech  because the one that was written for him mentioned something #$@%@ about Pres. G.W. Bush and he didn't want to use this rally as a political issue.

I "need" to start priming the bathroom walls today.  I just can't wait! :lmao  The primer is ready, the boarder is off the wall, just need to put the blue painter tape on the trim and get started!  Can anyone give me a jump start to motivate me?

FRANKIE, how wonderful that you and Lewis are getting away for a mini vacation.  Now just hope Jack and Tuffy behaves their selves.  I can't wait to hear about everything you do and see.  We are having spaghetti  and garlic bread for dinner tonight.  I was so hoping I would feel up to going out to eat as I wanted to take my son to this restaurant that makes beer and root beer and serves it in huge frosty mugs.  The food is great also.  Can't stand the thought of Mark going home.  He has helped me so much.  Also he bought us a new hot water tank and installed it for us he has spoiled me so much.  What a  wonderful treat he has been for me.

PRISSY, yep am hoping  that you get to the doctors for some xrays to see what is going on.  You are so active and enjoy life so much I couldn't stand it if you are always in pain.  The luncheon sounded wonderful.  Really sounds like a great place to eat for special occasions.  Thanks for always remembering me when it comes to food.   :bigsmile 

BETTY, how are you doing with the itching?  Have they scheduled any more tests? 

MOONSHOT, thanks so much for moving  us to a new and clean cottage.   :hugg

Michelle - Thank you for the new session!  :bouncy

Sharon - thank you for breakfast, as always. The boys' Uncle Kenneth (our neighbor down the road) is taking care of them this weekend. They will stay here most of the time, but he has permission to take them to his house to play with Buster the Beagle if he wants. One of our Agents is on backup for babysitting, too  :lol We noticed Jack just sitting and looking at the pond this morning - when we looked, there were 3 Canadian Geese on the water! (They must be really lost!)  :lol I hope they stay a while - they are beautiful.

JoAnn - Get in that bathroom!!! (There is your motivation!)  :lol The sooner you start, the sooner you will have a beautiful new room.

Glory - good luck with your job application.

Pepe -  :hugg I can only imagine how hard it is to live across the country from children - I complain because mine are a couple of hours away.  Maybe you will feel like going to that restaurant tomorrow.  :cross :cross :cross Lewis had spaghetti for supper last night. I did make that soup out of the roast. That is what we will both have for supper tonight. I plan to take the camera. I have toured some beautiful plantations in the past, but never in the winter. Usually they have beautiful formal gardens - hope we will still see some pretty things to photograph. Lewis has gone now to pick up the itinerary. I have found out that our first tour and lunch is in Louisiana, not Mississippi (I wondered how we would get to Mississippi by lunch time).

I'm about to make a Walmart run - have to get weekend feeders for the fish tanks. Kenneth will take care of the boys, the ducks, and the chickens, but I don't want him to have to worry about the fish.

Have a great Thursday, everyone - see all of you a little later....................

I'm back, and am watching the noon news. I just saw a story about TicketMaster. They were sued for fraud. When selling tickets to a Bruce Springsteen concert, TicktMaster showed "no tickets available", then the site directed people to a company they own - TicketsNow.com, where the tickets were sold for double and triple their value. Now we know why we never get good tickets!!!  :bang TicketMaster had to repay any extra money that people paid - I think they got off light!

How is everyone doing?


Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: JoAnn Moody on February 25, 2010, 12:35:41 PM
Sharon and Frankie---Thanks for the motivation BUT it didn't work.  All it did was to get me in there and put up the blue painters tape.   Mom and I didn't get out for errands until almost noon and when we got back about 2:00, she headed to take a nap and I headed for the television. :bigsmile
  We did get sealer for the granite at Home Depot.  They said instead of buffing the granite, just CAREFULLY clean/dry with warm soapy water and a nice soft cloth.  Then put on the sealer as the directions call for.  I bought a small spray bottle of granite sealer for $10 and the liquid bottle at the builder's surplus store was $69, glad I waited.  We also looked at "possible" light fixtures for above the vanity.  After seeing the price at Home Depot, we're going to go back to the builder's surplus store when it's time to select one.

  Sammy is having a problem with his new Hill's Reduced Diet(RD) food!  He is supposed to weigh 20 LBS but he weighs 38! :blush My fault.  The instructions say to give him 1and a half to 1 and three fourths cup per day for a 20LB  dog.  He is literally begging for food and licking the empty bowl all day long.  I "tried" giving him more but I don't think that this is a good idea.
   So today, I bought him a small bag of healthy brand with New Zealand Vinison/potato mix.  I plan to add just a touch of this to his diet food to help his hunger until he loses the weight.  He exercises a lot outside and then not to be able to eat, I feel sorry for him.  Hopefully this "new" system will help him.

Good Afternoon!

I enjoyed the performances at the Whitlock Club and a delicious lunch in the Tea Room:  Chicken Nicoise, parsleyed new potatoes with onions, green salad, rolls and tiramisu for dessert!!  The tiramisu was in a dessert goblet with lady fingers;  very light and good!! 

Before I left for the Whitlock Club, I called my friend the masseuse and I have an appointment today at 5.  I am not going to call the doctor until after I've seen her.


Here are some pictures from Jennie's birthday luncheon yesterday!!

(Remember, click on the small picture for a really large picture!) :thumb

PRISSY love the pictures thanks so much for taking and posting them.  Lovely pictures of beautiful ladies for sure.  Hope your back feels better this evening.

FRANKIE, we have tons of Canadian geese  that breed here in the spring time. They are good parents and come over to see if there is any corn or sunflower seed to feed their babies.  I am so excited about your trip.  My son just bought a new computer, he shouldn't have but he did.  He bought a Mcintosh.  He is going to fix his laptop computer and give it to me.  He said I could use it laying in bed if I wanted.  I only tried using it once and it drove me nuts as I am use to a mouse.   Mine is 8 years old and is on its way out though.  I will gratefully accept it as he tries to do what he can to make me feel better. 

EVERY one is very quiet today.  Hope everyone is well.

GLORY , wished you could get a job just a couple of days a week.  Don't want your income to get screwed  up where you didn't qualify for certain things anymore.  Be happy lady!!!!!!!!!

Good Afternoon!

I've been trying on clothes, and have found enough to wear  :clap (Good thing - there is no shopping here, and I did not have time to go out of town). Everything is stacked on the ironing board in the laundry room - now all I have to do is get it all into a suitcase. We are limited to one suitcase each, plus one carry on each.

JoAnn - one of our remodel problems was our tile guy. He gave us a price, installed all of the tile, then informed us that the price did not include sealing the grout! (It was going to cost an additional 50 cents a FOOT to seal the grout.  :para We did it ourselves instead (Lowes sells a little bottle with a  sponge wheel on the top that works well!!!) It was hard on the knees crawling around sealing  every side of every tile!  If you are going to have some tile work done, make sure the price includes sealing!!!!

Prissy -  :clap :clap :clap for the photos - just look at Jennie's beautiful blue eyes. Those are the biggest popovers I've ever seen. Hope the massage makes your back feel much better.

Jeanne - if you stop by - Michelle has put the painting contest for the Foundation that I told you about a couple of weeks back on the Home Page right above the ANN - I know you could paint a beautiful chair for the Foundation!!! I bet that the painters of chairs chosen to be raffled off would get to meet Clay, too. The chairs are to be raffled off at next year's Gala, I believe.


I have been reading our itinerary. For you foodies: (Prissy and Pepe)  :lol  Most of the meals (except for Friday night) are included, and Saturday's lunch and dinner are even listed. Lunch: Cup of vegetable soup, garden salad, deli style sandwich, desserts, tea/coffee. Sounds like I can stay on WW with this with no problem). Dinner (at the dinner theatre) Corn chowder, sliced beef brisket, green salad, green beans, cheese grits, roll, bread pudding with vanilla sauce. (Pray for me - I love cheese grits and bread pudding).  :wink

Back to work - see you later tonight.

 :wave Pepe and Jeanne - we are here at the same time!  :purpbana

Pepe - I hated our laptop until we bought a mouse for it - only cost a few dollars (less than $20, I think. I hated all of that tapping to use the laptop! You and Jeanne both have great sons.

Jeanne - have a great time eating out tonight - did you see Michelle's post about the contest???? Look on the front home page of Claymanaics!!!

Betty - I keep forgetting to tell you that Lewis' Dad (also named Lewis) was in England for most of WWII - I know you worked for the war effort during that time. I keep forgetting to ask Lewis where his Dad was stationed.

Now I'm really going back to work!

Frankie,
                   Sounds like a great trip. I have fallen in love with that hotel, I love old hotels
                  full of antiques. I think it"s time for you and Skip to get away.
   
                   I"m sure Uncle Kenneth will take good care of Jack and Tuffy.

                    Shirl really seems happy where she is, it has been the best thing she could
                     have done.
         
                           It would be nice to hear where Skip was in England. I was stationed
                          at Scampton and Waddington Air Base in Lincolnshire.

                                              Have a wonderful and safe trip.

                                                      Betty

      Prissy,
                   I have been spending less time on the computer and it seems to have
                    helped my back. It is always bad when I get out of bed in the mornings.

                      Hope you feel better soon.



          Sharon,

                          I"m sorry your sales were so poor. do you think its because of the economy??

                             Thanks for the tea.

       JAN,

                 I"m not sure that we are in Florida, I can't ever remember cold weather lasting so long.
                       
                      I  should like to know the name of the medicine that has helped you so much.
                 
                      Watching Idol is like pulling teeth. So slow and boring. I have"nt got excited about
                      anybody yet. Cara just gets on my nerves. If things don"t get better I can see The
                      show really fading away.

                             Your purse sounds very chic and you deserve it.

Betty, women are fickle shoppers too, one minute they love you and your things the next they find somewhere else they like to shop :lol I've been doing this 21 years and it never changes :lol It is also the time of year and economy no doubt.

Prissy, are you back from the Dr. yet??? Thanks for posting the pictures of the birthday girl :clap what a classy group of women :wink
I have to add that the enlarged picture of the popover looks like a small chicken :lol :bigsmile
Frankie, glad you found enough to wear, always tough when you are the midst of weight loss, seems I'm always between sizes no matter what I weigh :lol Have a wonderful time away :hugg

Good Evening!

I am back from the massage which was wonderful, really felt good, and she did work a lot on my back including the lower back.  Unfortunately, I still have that same pain in my lower left back, so, tomorrow, I may call my doctor and see about getting some physical therapy!

Sharon,
Small chicken!   :lmao  The popovers are huge and about 7 or 8 inches long!  Of course, they have a lot of air inside of them, but they are delicious with the strawberry butter!!  (Did I mention we each had two popovers?   Except JoAnn probably didn't!)

Pepe,
It was so frustrating to get off that massage table and still feel that same twinge in my lower left back!!  Oh, well!  I will try something else.  I hope you had a good day today!

Frankie,
The massage felt really good, but as I said, I still have that pain.  Skip said it might still have a positive effect on my back!   Food sounds good on your trip.  I love it when meals are included and you don't have to "scramble" to find a place to eat.  When I book us a hotel or motel, I always try to find one that serves breakfast!!

Betty,
I am trying to limit my time on the computer, too, but of course, I have to check in and see what's happening with everyone!

I did not take a pain pill this afternoon so I could "feel my pain" at the massage place, but I did take one a short while ago. The masseuse did say to drink plenty of water with the pain pill and just in general!

  I need to do laundry and then I like to watch PROJECT RUNWAY!  Jan, I think you and Frankie  are fans of that show, too.

Have a lovely evening!  :hugs

Prissy - sorry the massage did not help your back much - hope some therapy will help.

Betty, Prissy, and everyone else - I have just recorded most shows I do watch this week, because I have enjoyed the Olympics so much. I will catch up on all of the shows next week (I finally watched all of Project Runway except for tonight's show one day last week!). I have all of Idol taped, too, but from what I have heard all of you say, I might not bother to watch it. I will be happy to have The Biggest Loser back next week. I am really motivated to walk as I watch that show!  :lol

I forgot - we had a happy call from Cameron tonight - he made the golf team at school! It is good to hear a child or grandchild so happy.

Take very good care of each other this weekend - I will be thinking about you! See you either late Sunday or Monday.   :ghug

Thank you everyone for Mom's Birthday Greetings!  She saw them and it really touched her heart.

Prissy---Thank you for posting the photos.  She also enjoyed those too.  We both hope that your back will be better today.

Shirley-- :wave Hope you have a good day today.  We're going to Mom's COPD meeting Wednesday.  If the ever have any handouts, we will get you some.  Haven't had any in a long while though.

Fankie--Have fun on your trip.  I think you will find lots of things to do from looking at the hotel picture and your description of the place you're going to.

I WILL BE MOTIVATED TO DO THE BATHROOM WALLS TODAY.  NO EXCUSES!   :bigsmile

SHARON---- :wave I have an extra pot of coffee to bring here this morning!  I've been up since 4:00 and it's only 5:00 as I type.  I'm heading for my second cup already.

I'VE BEEN DOING AT LEAST 30 MINUTES A DAY ON MY STAIR STEPPER INSTEAD OF POWER WALKING.  I can count more calories stepping then walking.  For me, 30 minutes of stepping is equal to 360 calories vs. 210 calories for 30 minutes walking.
   My stepper also twists as I do each step.  This works the buttocks with my legs.  I won't be able to use it for awhile after surgery, so I'm enduring the "torture" of it while I can.

JOANN,  :purpbana :purpbana I am cheering you on to motivate you so you can hurry and fix the bathroom.  I can't wait to see the vanity you bought that you have talked about.  You got up way to early this morning.  4:00 am you need to lay down for a nap today. 

PRISSY, so sorry your back is still hurting.  My hubby has arthritis in his lower back, it could be many things wrong with yours .  A good thing to get it xrayed before anyone fools around with it.  What kind of pain medicine do you take?

FRANKIE, hope you and Lewis have a great time, will miss you while you are gone.  Hope you have a fun and safe trip.

GLORY, hope  you don't have to have that test done.  I didn't ask my surgeon just cancelled my appointment.  I knew I would never get thru it.

Well tomorrow I have to let my son go back to Arizona.  Sure is going to be very sad around here for a while.

Good Morning!

I did have a better night than the night before.  I found that I could sleep on my left side and be very comfortable and almost pain free!  I think my back is better today, but I will just have to wait and see as the day goes on!  :cross

Meals on Wheels, errands, and then early voting today!  Skip is still working in the attic with his wiring, so I imagine I will be "on the lookout" for wires coming down through the walls today!  :wink


Pepe,
I know it will be sad to have Mark return home, but just remember what a great visit you had with him.  I hope you took some pictures;  always a good way to keep memories alive.

Frankie,
Have a wonderful trip!  We also record shows to watch later on.  Sometimes a movie will start that we don't have time to watch at that moment, so we record it for a later time.

Sharon,
I am keeping my fingers crossed :cross that the after effects of the massage may have actually helped my back!!  As always, love the breakfast:  pumpkin and walnut:  sounds like a great combination!!

Glory,
Prayers that you get good results from your doctor's visit!!  We need some new pictures of your grandchildren when you get some!

Betty,
Have a great day!

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Fabulous Friday!  :hugs

Good  Afternoon Everyone!

  Well, I'm "very full"!  I had to "eat" my words from this morning!  I did not finish the bathroom walls. :bang I GAVE UP AND HAD MOM CALL A PROFESSIONAL PAINTER.  WE HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM HIM BUT HOPE TO SO THAT I DON'T HAVE TO FINISH THE JOB!
   I taped the edges fine, put down the plastic tarp over the brand new carpet fine, opened, stirred and poured the primer fine.  THEN ALL #@%@^#%@ BROKE LOOSE!!!
   The primer started dripping down the side of the can, so I took my left hand and wiped it!  Lovely! :bang Dropped a "small" spot of white primer on the new carpet! :bang Took the roller and started on priming the wallpaper(looked ok) but the roller kept sliding off the handle. :bang Then a few dribbles of primer managed to end up on the white tiles. :bang
  AT THIS STAGE, I STOPPED, CLEANED UP THE MESS AND ASKED MOM TO CALL!  HE WAS RECOMMENDED BY A DEAR FRIEND.  HE IS NOT CHEAP BUT VERY GOOD.(THE FRIENDS SAY!)  IF BY CHANCE HE CAN'T START WITHIN A FEW DAYS, I WILL FINISH WHAT I STARTED SO THAT WE CAN GET THE VANITY MOVED INTO THE ROOM.  I'M JUST NOT A PAINTER!

   I signed up for my next big vacation.  This year, I will be going in November instead of September like the last two years.  It is such a bargin, I couldn't pass it up.  Some of the same friends from the last two trips will be going too.
   We are going on "repositioning" cruise.  It's such a good price, most of the trip is the airfare.  On Nov. 6, we will fly to Barcelona, Spain to board the ship, go to a couple of ports in Spain, then over to Portugal and the Canary Islands, cruise back to the Bahamas then into Galveston, Tx then finally to Dallas.  We will be gone 14 days.
    The total price, including my single supplement, came about a third of the Peru trip!  The ship is the Royal Caribbean "Voyager of the Sea."

Good Afternoon!

I have had an almost pain free day, and I am very grateful for that.  I'm cautiously optimistic that the massage did have a positive effect and I am reaping the benefits today!! :wheee

After our Meals on Wheels deliveries, we came home briefly;  had a light lunch, then headed out for some errands:  my bank and a visit to Hot Chocolates (a chocolate shop owned by two gals in our Wedding Professionals group.  They have a new location and of course, we had to buy a large chocolate brownie.  I did share some of it with Skip!!) :choc

Skip went in to Lowe's and Home Depot while I worked Sudoku puzzles in the van!  :thumb   Then we  early voted in the Republican primary;  for Texas governor and local elections.

It is cloudy, windy, misty, and cold today!  41 degrees at one point but felt like 32 degrees!  :cold

 I just made reservations for a friend in my quartet and me to see a play called, OPUS, about a string quartet.  It is a "soap opera" type play about the dynamics that go on among the members of a string quartet.  We got a senior discount and will attend the matinee on Saturday, March 13! :thumb :violin2

OPUS (http://www.star-telegram.com/2010/02/16/1973818/circle-theatres-opus-made-vibrant.html)


Joann,
I am a big believer in hiring professionals to do what they are expert in doing.  I always tell Skip I wouldn't expect a plumber or painter to play violin at a wedding!!  

Betty,
Ooh!  You burned your hand!   I hope it is feeling better.

Pepe,
I hope you are having a good day.  I did not have hot chocolate this morning, but may have some this afternoon in a very cute mug with a snowman inside of it!! :wink

Frankie,
I imagine you are on your trip or getting ready to leave.

I hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon!  :hugs


Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: JoAnn Moody on February 26, 2010, 02:59:22 PM
Betty---Ouch!  Hope the hand is healing. :hugg I do know how burns hurt!  Once, at the age of 5, I grabbed a cup of hot grease(Mom had just fried chicken in it) and it splattered on my chest and arm.  No scars at all.  We had a window unit AC and Mom grabbed a stick of butter put on it, held me in front of the AC and called the doctor.  Of course, the doctor would "shun" that home remedy today but it worked!  The second severe burn was while I was an art teacher.  I didn't know that the plug of my kiln would get so hot!  Took it out to check the inside through the peep hole, touched the wrong end and it burned/stuck to my hand.  The principal rushed me to the ER. Once again, no scars.  Taught me a lesson.  LOOK BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING! :bigsmile

Prissy--Glad  to see you feeling better.  I called the house and left you a message. :hugg

Painting "Backup" Plan:
1. Called the first painter and if he can't do it,
2. We're going back to Sherwin Williams tomorrow to see if they have any painters to recommend.
3.  Call the son of the neighbor who used to live across the street.  They had a paint team out while the house  was up for sale.  I actually like that  color better then the sample we have too.

JOANN, the trip sounds positive the painting no.  To bad you didn't hold off on having the carpet installed till the very last thing.  Hope the painter can help you out. 

PRISSY, so glad you had a pretty much pain free day, that makes me very happy.  Glad you are drinking out of your cups they sure looked cute on the internet.

Good Morning Everyone,

  Yep, here I am at 5 a.m., rise and shine everyone!

Sharon---coffee's ready for your wonderful breakfast!  Have you ever tried coffee syrups?  I've been using sugar free syrups every so often instead of Splenda(sweetener).  I usually put in  a teaspoon of Coffee Mate and a package of "Mocha" flavored Splenda but bought some sugar free caramel coffee syrup and when I use that, no Splenda.
   I've also been getting the International flavored instant coffees for our "3:00" coffee.  Most of them or no more then 60 calories per cup even the sugared ones.

OUR PAINTING DELIMA HAS BEEN  SOLVED!  My dear cousins from Rockport, Tx call ever night and last night when  I told him of the "problem" he called back and asked if we could wait until March 11 to finish the project.  He and his wife are going to San Antonio on the 10th, then he is going to head up here and help paint for a few days! :hugg 
   It will be the first week after my foot surgery but I told him that I could be "boss" :lmao and help  with what I could. They are so loving.  They also came up last October to stay with Mom while Prissy and I went to the Gala.  He, Randy is Mom's first cousin but he is more  like a son to her and my late Dad.  His Mom died as he was preparing  for high school graduation and  Mom (who's not much older then him) and Dad took him under their wings.  He also adored my Dad like a second Dad too.  He's really only a few years older then my sister.

He is is even going with us to pick out the final "sample" of the color we choose.  Mom and I are going out today to decide on some more color samples to  consider.  She also had her eye on a wall light at the same place I got the vanity, so we will go look at it a second time for her to see  if this is"the one."

   My eye is bothering me more today then  yesterday.  It feels like something is in it, such as a stye growing on the inside.  I've put drops in but nothing has  helped.  I'm just going to watch it.   I hate to try and make an eye doctor appointment.  It seems like you can't get in  to see them until it heals up.  I refuse to go to "Dr.  Doom!"
    My hurt foot is really bothering me today too.  Since I have the surgery this Friday, I've really been exercising on the stair stepper to condition my legs and  hips.  I guess I've over done it on  the foot. I really can't wait to get this over with now.

Hi JoAnn, thanks for the coffee, and how interesting coffee syrups :yum I must look for them.  Have to admit I love flavoured coffee, I am able to buy Ghirardelli here in specialty stores, and I do treat myself :bigsmile
I'm so happy you will have help with the painting, it's such a job, and very easy for some, they are really good at it, glad they'll help :wink That leaves you good at being boss :lol :thumb.  Have you put  a little polysporin in your eye JoAnn, it may soothe :nixweiss:
Prissy, hoping your back is still improving :please
Frankie, bet you're having fun!!!!
I made some hot tea and chocolate with mini mallows for y'all too and have Jeanne's chocolate donuts and some cereal with blueberries and bananas this morning :wink

Good Morning!

I'm sorry to say that I had another painful evening and night.  I could not lie flat in the bed or on my side and slept in one of the recliners all night.  I believe when I bent down to try to pull wires for Skip from the opening on the wall near the floor, I aggravated that same painful spot again.  So far, this morning, the pain is not as much.

A memorial service is today at three for a dear lady from our Sunday School class who passed away a couple of days ago.  She was 70, so not really that old.  The obituary said she met her future husband in eighth grade and they married after he graduated from college.  They were married a little over 47 years.

No other plans but to "take it easy" and see if my back can get better!

JoAnn,
Very nice of Randy to offer to do the painting for you and Jennie.  He is always willing to step up and help you two.  I wonder if you should go to the eye doctor just to check on that eye.

Sharon,
I am frustrated with this pain in my lower back.  Skip says it will eventually go away, but I am not a very "patient Prissy."   We love Hostess Honey Nut cereal (looks like Cherrios) with blueberries!  Always love the hot chocolate.

Pepe,
I believe Mark leaves today.  I know you will be sad to see him go, but think how wonderful it has been to have him for 10 days.

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Super Saturday!  :hugs

Good Afternoon Everyone,


   Sasha------ :wave Good to see you and I ALWAYS love the blends you post!

  It is a gorgeous day today!  Bright, sunny and not cold!  Mom and I went our and selected the "perfect" wall light fixture to go above her new vanity.  The room is in "pieces" at the moment but as soon as we get it painted when my cousins come up on the 11th, we will get the vanity moved into the bathroom and installed and the new fixture installed.

   My eye is better this afternoon.  I bought some artificial tear drops yesterday and after the 4th time of using them, some of the soreness has stopped, not all but a lot.  Maybe they are just dry after all.

   My weight management weekly assignment was to "throw" in at least 2 extra bouts of exercise(10 minutes plus) on Saturday.  I count my regular session of 45 minutes walking while we were out today, so now I'm going to do two 10 minute bouts of stair step.  I only do 5 minutes at a time, so it will take 4 small bouts.

                  I don"t think the cold weather helps.

PRISSY, I am so sorry about your back.  Wished you would go to the doctor to see what is the matter with it.  Hope you can get some sleep tonight. 

GLORY, what are you up to? 

SASHA, I know you are ready for spring so am I.  At least I could go out on the back porch and sit.  Now I am confined in this house looking at all the things that need to be done that I can't do, and it really drives me mad as I was one that loved to clean house. Hope Miss Chloe is doing okay and eating well.

       pepe,
                        I"m sorry you are having such constant pain, I wish the doctor could help you.

                          I know you will miss your son, but it was so nice he came and visited you.

Good Evening!

We did go to the memorial service at our church for the lady in our Sunday School class who passed away.  A very nice service, and we saw some former church members we had not seen in a while!   I know the daughter of the deceased fairly well who lives in this area, and I was able to speak to her and give her a hug.  She and I exchange email pictures of our dogs.  I got o meet her sister who lives out of state and looks just like their mother who passed away. 

Skip and I made a stop at Walgreen's on the way home and we both fell asleep in our recliners for about an hour!  So far, I am not having too much lower back pain, so I am grateful for that!  :cross

I hope you all have had a nice day and have a lovely evening!  I think we are in for the evening even though one couple at the service asked us about playing "42" this evening.  We may another time.

Pepe,
I just saw your post.  I am hoping I am on the mend! :cross  It was awful to see things that needed to be done, and I could not do them because of the pain.  I am hoping my back pain was only temporary, but I will continue to be careful and not lift anything heavy.   I think we will all be happy for Spring to get here.  I would like to get a shrub called, "Flowering Quince" and plant one or more because it is the first plant to bloom in February here.  But we have seen some trees with blossoms already!  :shock

Betty,
How are you doing?  There was a reception after the memorial service with cookies and strawberry punch!  I had a chocolate chip cookie and a Snickerdoodle cookie.  I passed up a chocolate/chocolate chip cookie!  :shock  I hope your hand is much better!
I did try the heating pad on my back, but another friend suggested going back and forth from an ice pack to heat.



:hugs

Good Morning!

I was able to sleep in the bed last night;  just a twinge in my back when I turned over, but nothing like I've been experiencing.  I really feel like the worst is behind me.  No pain pills since yesterday morning!!

We will go to Sunday School and then no special plans.  We had a beautiful day yesterday, as JoAnn said.  Sunny and warm.  I know rain is in the forecast for tomorrow, but today looks like another nice day.

Sharon,
I think my quartet friend and I will enjoy the play OPUS.  One review said there are lots of "inside jokes" so I take that to mean if you have been in a quartet, you will get the meaning of most of the play!  As I said, my back is so much better.  I am very thankful and now can sympathize with those with chronic pain, especially back pain. 

Pepe,
I wish you could wake up pain free.  I hope you have a good day today.  I will have some of Sharon's hot chocolate with the mini-marshmallows in my cute mugs.  Skip said did I want to put them away with the Christmas dishes, but I said, "No,"  these are my "winter" mugs!!

Frankie,
I know you are having a great time on your trip.  I can't wait to hear all about it.

Hello to all checking in and/or reading today and have a Super Blessed Sunday!  :hugs

Sharon--Thanks for the coffee.  I've just been vegging this morning.  I'm going to just make the time this afternoon to gather/write up all my income tax info.  I always say that is the first thing I'm "going" to do in Jan.  but here we are with March 1 tomorrow an I've yet to do it. I don't know why, I don't have any deductibles to worry about, just lazy.  I will do it today then call my CPA to tell them that it's on it's way.
   I hope that I have not over exercised this week for tomorrow's weigh in.  I felt confident until this morning for some reason.  We shall see tomorrow.
 Sun is out, going up to 61o today but like Prissy said, rain tomorrow.  Maybe it won't be a freezing rain.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.  See you later.

PRISSY, so glad you are feeling some better.  My DIL was over today with Preston. 

FRANKIE, miss  you and ready for you to come home now.

GLORY, was wondering what was going on with you.  Now what????   

JAYNE, hope you are all rested up and hope you get more work again.  Maybe things will pick up.  I know here in Mich it is getting worse.

BETTY, hope you feel good when you head to NC.  Sure want you to feel good so you have a great time.  Who will you be rooming with?

ANGELA, in case you are reading was just wondering how work is going and if you still enjoy it.  I think this is a lot different than the job you had isn't it?

Good Morning Sharon  :wave  Thanks for the coffee!  It's cold and rainy this morning.  Only going to about 42o today.

I ABSOLUTLY  LOVE CANADIAN SYRUP!  I would take that over Vermont Syrup day time!  Last time I visited by friends in Toronto, we drove to the Bush country and went to a Maple farm.  It was snowing, rode in a huge, horse drawn sleigh, visited the old farm, simply beautiful!
   My friend took me to Costo to buy my syrup though! :lmao I bought a liter for a little of nothing there.  The "tourist" places were ridicules on the  price.  That liter was wonderful while it lasted! :bigsmile

  I bought a t-shirt with "eh"(sorry about the spelling?) Love the way Canadians say that!  Here is Texas, the only unique saying we have is  "Ya'll!" Not as interesting either.

Have a great day everyone, I'm working on a "To Do" list to finish before  my surgery this Friday.  It should be keeping me busy.  I need to do a lot of "little"  things before  I have to be on crutches the first week.

JoAnn, I am very guilty of adding "eh" to the end of a sentence when speaking :lol Once had a very confusing time with a bunch of my American buddies in my van with me, going to restaurant before a concert.  I was asking if I should take exit "A" or "B" someone said "B" I said "eh" get the picture??? :lmao :lol we still laugh about that one, they almost sent the posse out for us :doh
My hubby had a favorite mennonite family at the market that he always got his syrup from, I still go to them to this day :wink

BETTY, how wonderful that you will be rooming with Marilyn.  Guaranteed you will have a delightful time with her.  I do love Marilyn she is great!!!!!

JOANN, I wish you could come here the first week after surgery while you are on crutches.  I would use my walker and we could have races with Preston.  Also could play some games together.  I was working on a book of word games last night my DIL brought me. 

SHARON, the sun is shinning so bright this morning.  I was afraid when Mark left he would take the sun with him but it is shinning brighter than ever.  I am so happy that it is not cloudy out.  I can not believe it is March already.  CONGRATS on the Hockey game, we do love our Canadian friends, they are so warm and kind and special. 

MEESA, good morning my sweet!  Hope all is going smoothly for the wedding.  We are always here for you in case you have problems you know.   You are always in our thoughts.

Good Morning!

100% chance of rain here - the boys and I will stay in and get suitcases unpacked. We had a great trip - one of the best we have had on one of these bus trips. It's funny how all of you have become part of our lives. I thought about AC the whole time we were touring a music museum, and wished for Prissy as we watched a man dressed in an 1850s replica suit (made by his wife) play the violin for us during a candlelight dinner. We were in a pre-Civil War Mansion and he played music from the eighteen hundreds all the way through to present time!).

I will post photos and lots more information if I can find Tammy's
Traveling Thread - I haven't been on a trip in so long I will have to search for it!  :lol

Happy Monday, everyone - I'm going back to read what I have missed.....................

I'm caught up!

Pepe - I thought abut you as Mark had to leave. I'm happy, though, that you had such a good visit with him. I have lots of food to tell you about!!!)

Prissy - I have been meaning to tell you, JoAnn, and dudley that we will be VERY happy when you Texans finally elect your new governor! I am tired of all of the political commercials! Hope your back is feeling better today.

JoAnn - I hate to paint! Glad your cousin is coming to help. We will all be praying for you as you have your surgery - is someone coming to stay with you and Jennie as you recover? Hope your weigh in goes well today. I weighed this morning, since it is the first of the month. Lost .2 since last Wednesday (good since I was on the trip with wonderful food all around me). I lost only 1.6 for the month of February, but that is O.K. I need to do better in March.

Glory - I am glad you did not have to have anything done at this time. If you can avoid tests and surgery, I think that is always good. You are such a good Mom - I would not be as patient or as nice to your daughters as you are.  :censor

Betty - hope your sinus infection is better, and that your burned hand is, too - you need to get all well before going to Raleigh. We toured a cotton plantation in northern Louisiana called Frogmore. They told us it was named for an estate in England owned by the Royal family.

Meesa - great Clay photos every day! Less than two weeks to your wedding - I hope you will be very happy.  :hugg

Sharon - great breakfasts every day  :hugg Congratulations to Canada - both of our countries have so much to be proud of during these Olympics!  :clap :clap :clap From what I have heard, "eh" is sort of like our "huh", as in we had a great time, huh???  :lol

Sasha - so glad to see you posting! Great Clay photo! Hope Chole is fine, and that her new brother or sister will be joining your home soon.

Hello to everyone lurking, too - it is really starting to pour here - glad we got home before this bad weather moved in! See you later!

Skip got up early for a very early doctor's appointment.  I fixed him breakfast, then I went back to bed;  had both dogs on the bed with me! :lol

I am going to a Bridal Fair for a short time and then on to the opera orchestra rehearsal this evening.  Luckily, my back is so much better, I should be able to play my violin without any complications!

Sharon!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CANADIAN HOCKEY TEAM!   How exciting that they were able to win this game.  I also believe I read that Canada won 14 Gold Medals.  :clap
Thanks for breakfast as always.  i love Canadian bacon!!

Pepe,
I'm glad you got to see Preston yesterday!  Did he get to visit also when Mark was with you?   I hope you have a great day.  Glad to hear the sun is shining!

Frankie,
Welcome back!  Sounds like a fabulous trip.  I have been positing vacation pictures in Jan's thread in Member's Corner. SHARE YOUR VACATION (http://www.claymaniacs.com/forums/index.php/topic,14025.40.html)   Can't wait to see pictures and read more about your trip!
Skip and I voted early, on Friday, and I did vote for the "dark horse" in the Republican Primary for Governor!  :wink

FRANKIE, so happy to see you home.  Saw your posts and got tears in my eyes I was so happy to see you.  I am a little emotional still after my son left.  I am anxious to see all the pictures and hear about the wonderful food. Also I agree with your post to GLORY, think they should be grateful to their mom and treat her better.

SHARON, I see Mellissa is now a part of Entertainment Tonight so don't know if she will do both shows or not.  Wonder why Samantha is leaving, I thought she was so pretty.

PRISSY,  yep Preston saw Mark when he was picking him up at the airport than they all had a nice dinner near the airport with my grandaughter and her hubby than the 3 hour drive here.  Also he came one day for the afternoon and spent with Uncle Mark and also saw Mark Saturday for a half of a day before he left for the airport.  He got to talk to Mark on the phone  yesterday too when Preston was here.  Mark fell in love with Preston and Preston loves his uncle big time.  He liked the way Mark talks to him.   :bigsmile  So glad you are almost pain free with your back.  Make sure you rest today.

Hello Frankie! :wave Welcome back nice and safe.

I went to my weight maintenance class today.  I stayed even which is good for me.  I was so happy that I didn't gain.  I've really worked on exercising this week since I will be limited for the next few weeks.
Pepe--I'd love to come up to your house and recoup!  We could go "tear" Walmart up on a couple of carts! :bigsmile

It's still rainy and cold outside but I must head out in a few minutes.  My "to do" list before Friday includes getting several "painting" "stuff" ready for when Randy comes next week to help us out.  I might as well get it today because I would be too sore next  week.

                     Welcome Home! it does"nt seem right without you.
                           
                        Your trip sounds very interesting, I love those old antique places.
                        Looking forward to the pictures.   

                            My sinus infection is not too bad and the burn has stopped weeping
                          but it"s hard to wash my hands.

                                             Had a pedicure this morning as it is hard for me to get down

                               to them anymore and my nails were very long. I looked like Foo Man Choo.





                     Glory,
                                       Don"t despair, life with grown children is never perfect and they tend
                        to think we don"t know anything.
  I wonder how we have managed life until now????

Good Afternoon!

I have been doing laundry and also being careful of what I lift.  I don't want to have my back hurting again!  :shock

Pepe,
I love reading how much Preston and his Uncle Mark enjoyed being together.  It sounds like a real bonding took place between them.  I hope that closeness continues as Preston grows up.  I am resting some and trying not to do too much.  I will see how I'm feeling after I play my violin for 2 plus hours this evening!!  :violin2

Frankie,
Thanks for the DWTS news.  As you can probably guess, we BACHELOR and DWTS fans are up on that news and anxiously awaiting the announcements this evening.  I have posted also in the DWTS thread with pictures of the three possible choices for cohost!   

Glory,
I'm sure things will be fine again with your kids.  Just give them time!!

Michelle,
Did we reach our goal of the money needed to keep Claymaniacs going?   

I need to go out and get some milk and eggs and then I will be heading for the Bridal Fair and then orchestra practice.

I hope you all are having a lovely day!  :hugs

Still raining!

Sharon - the boys did great without us - but they were very glad to see us! We had two great people caring for them - people who would come and play with them, not just put food out. I had heard that about Samantha - Carrie Ann was on the Today how this morning, but would not give any hints!!!

Glory -  :hugg :hugg :hugg I would tell you a few things to say to your kids (including that it is about time you think of yourself!!!!) but I am behaving myself today  :bigsmile You are very loved.  EDIT - send me a cyber cookie!!!!!

Pepe - how wonderful that Preston knows his uncle now - hope they remain close long distance, and I hope Mark and his wife get to visit often. I am about to post a few photos. I have most of the laundry done, and all but one suitcase unpacked!  :clap

JoAnn - maintaining is great. Hope you get all of your errands done before Friday.

Betty - I talked to Shirl a little while ago.  I just found out she called and talked to Lewis last night! When I had my bath, I immediately went to bed. When he walked back to our bedroom and found me asleep, he just talked to Shirl himself  :lol She sounds good.

Prissy - I will depend upon you "Bachelor" people to post in the DWTS thread!!!  Hope practice does not hurt your back.

Off to find Jan's vacation thread (via Prissy's link to the

  Great pictures!  Mom looked at them too and she thought they were so nice.  She wanted me to tell you to tell Lewis, that she is also quite familiar with the same type of cotton sacks!  As a young girl, she was "supposed to help" pick the cotton but she thought it was more fun to "ride" on top of her uncle's sack while he picked the cotton and slid her around the field. :lmao

Good Morning!

No back problems after playing violin last evening, so I feel like I am almost 100% over it!   I guess Skip was right;  you just have to give it time to heal!

Today I want to go to the Woman's Club to see beautiful set ups of tables on display; similar to the Gala table set ups at my church at Christmas!   I plan to take my camera, so I may have some photos to post later!  :thumb

Tomorrow is the first Wednesday of the month and our JOY (Just Older Youth) games/luncheon day.  One lady is bringing pulled pork and buns, another Cole slaw.....sounds like a North Carolina meal!   I am going to make cupcakes and frost them with green frosting.  Remember my last batch of cupcakes for the Pond Club February meeting had to be eaten all by Skip because of cancellation for our big "snow."

Sharon,
Thanks for breakfast, as always.  I have been reading and posting on our two other threads! :wink   I missed who the parings on DWTS are on GMC this morning.  Did you catch who Maks is partnered with and who the new cohost will be?

Pepe,
It looks like a nice, sunny day today.  I hope you are having good weather, too.  Have a good day!

I've been enjoying your trip in the Vacation Thread!   It makes me want to take our next trip which will be to Branson!!

Sharon- :wave thanks for the quick coffee!  I'm on a run this morning.  Freshened up the guest room for my cousin coming in.  "looked" at all the house work that is waiting for me on my "to do" list.  Showered and will be going for my "pre-op" appointment in about an hour.
   On the way home, we're going to stop and get all the painting supplies that my cousin requested and stop by the church.  One of the members is going to lend me his crutches to use.  I had some years ago but I donated them when I didn't need them after a previous surgery.  
  The sun is out this morning but it's still cold.  Just glad it's not raining of sleeting.  We need to start with our nice spring weather.

  I love my little Sammy so much.  Each morning after he eats, he "expects" me to hold/cuddle him while I'm watching television.  Imagine a 35 lb dog cuddling in your lap! :lmao  I "tell" him the same story every morning how he "chose" me by giving me a kiss on my chin when I picked him up.  I had "looked" at his brother but that puppy just "looked" at me.  I picked up Sammy(known as Trey at that time) next and he reached up and kissed me on the chin.  I knew then that we had found the perfect puppy  for us.  He "loves" to "hear" this story everyday and he really "listens" too.  As soon as I finish, he throws his head against my shoulder and licks my chin.

Good Morning!

I just saw Kate Goselin on GMA - she is Tony's partner on DWTS this year  :para - I have to get over to either ABC or the DWTS thread to see who else is dancing this year.

Glory - I had not heard that about Ruben and Clay. Hope your hair color comes out just like you want - enjoy your exercise class, too.

Betty - I never got back to posting more trip photos last night - Lewis was working on the computer. We are having a membership drive for our animal shelter, and he was working on the new members list - I will try to get back to that today. I never even told Pepe about most of the food.

JoAnn - tell your Mom that my parents sharecropped until WWII. I can remember my Mom talking about pulling her babies on top of cotton sacks as she picked cotton. She worked so hard - that is why we tried to make sure she had the best life possible in her later years. I love the story time for Sammy every morning!

Sharon - thank you for breakfast!

Prissy -  :clap :clap that your back is better!

I've just gotten an email that my real estate school (continuing education) has been cancelled for tomorrow. I am irritated at this last minute cancellation, because I had cancelled a shopping trip and playing cards tonight because of the class! I may just take my continuing ed on line this year.

Have a Happy Tuesday, everyone - see you later!

PRISSY, we have beautiful sunny skies here again.  DUDLEY called today and she sounded good.  She has been getting outside a lot and weeding.  Glad she feels  up to it.  I can not believe the sunny weather we have had the past two weeks.

FRANKIE, I would be  upset to if I had canceled all that, if you can do the courses at home when you want to that is what I would do.

Back  from my pre-op and all tests were good.  I have to be at the hospital Friday at 5:45a.m.!  I might as well not go to sleep on Thursday night! :lmao  I know that I'm always up at that time, but we're also including a 20-25 minute drive to be there at that time.  Surgery is at 7:30a.m.

Sharon, Glory, Frankie and Pepe---Thanks about my "baby" Sammy!  Another "crazy" story.  I'm not the only "crazy" person that lives here when it comes to Sammy.  Mom(Sammy's Mema!) "tells" him everywhere we're going each time we get ready to leave the house. :lmao

JoAnn - what's crazy about that? On the rare occasions that I go anywhere without the boys, I always tell them where I'm going, how long I will be gone, and if they are having a sitter, I always tell them who is coming over  :lol

Glory - Tuff runs in circles every time I put on my coat - he assumes he gets to go, and he is usually right! I have a friend here who takes her dog to McDonalds for hamburgers - they know, when she pulls up, that she will need one burger with just meat and the bun!

     Frankie,
                  I"m glad to see Shirl doing so well and enjoying herself.Sorry your classes were cancelled

                   As was at the dermatologist this afternoon, he said I do have Lupus and that rashes are
                    part of it.  He also removed two small lumps and sent them for a biopsy. So we will see.
     
                        Going to look for your pictures now.
         
                         Of course I should love to go to the Biltmore and see Clay and Ruben. They are such

                         good friends and have fun together.

Glad that I'm not the only crazy one in the world of pets! :lmao  If it weren't for the  "crazy" ones, live would be dull and a bit lonesome too.
   I have a bad habit of feeding my animals people food too.  I had a horse several years ago who loved to "share" peanut M&M's! with me.  He also "thought" he should be a lap horse.  every time I would sit down while I had him crazing on a lead, he would "gently" back up towards me and try to sit in my lap to get a good scratching.  His favorite spot for me to scratch was his rump at the tail base.  My friend's horse would drink Dr. Pepper straight from a bottle!

   I got plenty of exercise today! I had a huge calorie burn, way over 800 calories.  First, I did a 45 minute walk inside WalMart, then my neighbor and I did our 45 minute neighborhood walk and for over an hour, I put down blue painter's tape along the trim to save it from the paint.  I finished two rooms of that and I also started  removing the boarder  wallpaper in Mom's bedroom.
  I'm exhausted and my shoulders feel as tight as a twisted rubber band.

Good Morning!

Betty - I'm sorry that your doctor thinks you have Lupus  :hugg - it can be dificult to deal with, but with a firm diagnosis, at least all of your doctors should have a better treatment plan.  The Biltmore is so beautiful - I bet a concert there would be really special. I see the concert is scheduled for one of the terraces - not where the last concert was located.

Glory -  :clap :clap :clap that your hair turned out well. I need to get back to exercising - this has been a very busy week.

Sharon - I will have hot chocolate this morning!

 :wave Meesa!

JoAnn - that is a lot of calories burned. This morning I am down 1.6 - that is 1.6 lost since Monday. The same amount I lost all of last month  :bduh I'm sure it is fluid, and that my weight will go up and down this week as it normally does.

Happy Wednesday, everyone - see you later!


Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: Pepe on March 03, 2010, 05:25:47 AM
BETTY, I am glad the doctor has finally come up with a diagnosis.  Half the battle it seems is just finding out what is the matter with you than you can try and deal with it.  I pray those lumps are fine and just a little fatty lumps.  I have to get myself dressed which takes me forever any more as I have to go to the hospital for blood tests today.

GLORY, I bet you look spiffy with your golden streaks in your hair.  So happy that you are happy with the new look.  Does wonderful for the morale when you have a new look.  I have to tr y and get out more.  Hubby says every one asks about me when he is in the stores.  A lot of the stores here have steps though and can not access them with my walker.  Still enjoy my clock every single day.  :hugg 

FRANKIE,  you are perfect the way you are, I wouldn't worry about losing any more weight.  As active as you are and with summer coming I don't know why  you have to diet at all.  I would think all that heat and humidity wouldn't allow you to gain weight.

JOANN, glad everything is okay for your upcoming surgery.  Sounds like you are going to get more rooms painted other than Jennie's bathroom. How nice to have a great cousin like that. I can just picture that horse doing that and Pepe loves to have the base of his tail scratched also, a favorite place.

PRISSY, hope all is well with you,  sun is shinning once again here in East  T awas.  How lucky are we.

Good Morning!

We will go to the JOY games/luncheon today and then Skip will just stay at church to help prepare for Soul Food Supper this evening.  We will take separate vans so I can come on back home after the JOY group.

This evening, after Soul Food Supper, I will go on to my opera orchestra rehearsal;  another tomorrow evening, and then performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  I will not play the Saturday performance because Skip and I will go to a fund raiser we attend every year:  Denim & Diamonds;  a silent and live auction plus "tastings" from many restaurants in the area!! :yum :thumb

Skip made deviled eggs and I made the "dump" cake recipe Heloise published in her column recently!!   In a 9 by 13 greased Pyrex dish,  20 ounce can of crushed pineapple in heavy syrupy spread on the bottom of the pan,  then a 21 ounce can of cherry pie filling spooned on top of the pineapple.  A yellow cake mix sprinkled on top of the cherry pie filling, and then chopped pecans next and thin slices of butter all over the cake!   I baked it for 50 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Because Skip cannot have nuts, I only put the pecans on about 2/3 of the cake!   I hope it is good.  It didn't rise very much!!  :para

Pepe,
It looks like a beautiful day here.  I noticed that my dianthus stayed green all winter.  Also, that the hyacinths and daffodils are trying to sprout up around our trees in front. 
I hope you have a good day today.  Maybe after your blood tests you will feel like a visit in a store and a stop at McDonald's.

Frankie,
I loved reading about your trip in Jan's Vacation Thread.  I need to set a date for Skip and me to go to Branson;  thinking of April!

Sharon,
Chocolate any time!

Glory,
Your hair sounds lovely with the golden highlights!!  Wednesday is our church supper day, too!   I always like to hear what you have at yours!

Betty,
A lupus diagnosis.   I think I would want a second opinion on that.  Skip and I have toured the Biltmore, but I can't remember if I saw Clay in concert there!! :dunno   I will have to go back and look at my lists of concerts in the thread Clay in Concert.  I do hope that Clay and Ruben have remained friends.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Wonderful Wednesday!  :hugs


PS:  I forgot to mention that I did go to the Woman's Club yesterday and saw many beautiful table settings including one with flamingos and boas and another set up like a Mardi Gras table.  I took lots of pictures and will start posting them just as soon as we get them in the computer.  :thumb

                          The table settings sound beautiful, you do lead an interesting life.
                   


         JoAnne,
                        I should love to have seen you with a horse on your lap. I"ve never
                       heard of a horse liking Dr Pepper.

I decided to go "little" shopping over to Natchitoches after I posted this morning - bought groceries, and also bought some long-sleeved tshirts on clearance. I spent some time in (where else!) Hallmark, too. I bought a wall hanging that was on the clearance  aisle - half price!   :bouncy It is a wrought iron design, and you bought any initial to go in the center - I bought an "M", of course. I have bought several Ms lately - all different sizes and designs. I'm either going to hang them all together in our bathroom or bedroom. I also called our Son and took him out to lunch.

Pepe I hope your blood tests are coming out well every week. I would like to lose 13 more pounds - if I do, then I will have lost 50 pounds. And I would like to keep it off this time! I would really like to lose an additional 10 pounds for a total of 60, but at my age I don't need to lose so much that it causes even more wrinkles!!!  :para For lunch I had my usual (I am in a rut) - Broiled chicken, sweet potato, and green salad. My son had country fried steak (covered in white gravy), a baked potato (loaded) and green salad. There was also a fresh baked loaf of bread - neither of us touched it, and there was no dessert.   :cry

Glory - there are still lots of tickets around for the PBS taping, and the Ruben/Raleigh tickets don't even go on sale until April - Go!!!

Prissy - You are so busy, as always. I have had that cake before - it is good (especially when there is vanilla ice cream, too!  :slick ) We do love Branson - I would love to take the grandchildren again this summer. Be sure to book a lunch or dinner on the river boat. We went at night, and it was special - a good music show, and terrific food!!!

Betty - we are trusting the boys a little now - starting to leave them outside when we are gone for short periods. Lewis called me and told me he was leaving them out when he went to the office - I got home two hours later, and they were still here!  :clap So much better than them being cooped up in nice weather. It is beautiful here today, and is going to be in the mid 60s for the rest of the week.

Time to get busy around here - see 'ya later!

Frankie, I hear you about chicken ruts :lol seems all I eat, but I have a wonderful idea for sweet potatoes for you :wink

I make a container of this sprinkle to have on hand :wink
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

slice sweet potatoes 1/2' thick, drizzle with a bit of olive oil on cookie sheet and sprinkle both sides with spice.
Bake at 400 approx 15 min turning half way.
Delicious :yum

Well I got home and can't say I enjoyed my outing.  I was doing pretty good this morning, I am still getting over the rib I fractured on my right side three weeks ago but it is not quite so painful.  I was sitting on a chair in the living room and bent over to try and tie my left shoe.  When I did I felt this horrible pain in my left top rib and I bet I cracked that one too.  The pain was horrible.  Well it took me a while to get out the door and Don half lifting me into the car as the hospital was expecting me at 10:30.  After the blood tests the ordeal of getting in the car again and we drove a cross the street to McDonalds as I was starving.  Don told me not to try and go to Walmarts but I insisted as I knew I wasn't going to go thru all that again getting dressed and out but should have listened to hubby as I was in such horrible pain I could not enjoy my trip out.  Just hurried and got what I needed and was in tears by the time I drove the motor cart out of the store.  Not good.  Got home and took a pain pill and laid down.  Doctor's office already called and got the results of the blood work and all is well with that.  Not losing much blood and the  uremic acid is doing good with my medication.  So the swelling of my left foot and ankle is not due to that. 

Anyway that is my day.

PRISSY, I wished I had your energy and drive.  It kills me to see my house and yard look like it does and all I have to do is sit here and look at it and fuss about it.  I have to find a cleaning lady and have asked around and no one seems to know of anyone that is any good.  Afraid they know my standards are high.  I like the corners to be cleaned.  The main thing is to keep my bathrooms and kitchen cabinets and floor spotless. 

FRANKIE.  I hope the boys continue to be good while you are gone.  That is hard for a  Yorkie and a Jack R ussel to do though.     :lol :lmao

GLORY, glad you are so busy today.  I see you are watching babies again so i guess the girls decided you were smart after all.   :bigsmile

Good  Afternoon All,

  I'm pooped!  I did an hour of removing the wallpaper boarder this morning before going to Mom's Better Breathers Group(lung support)  I still will need at least another 45 minutes or so.  It's been on SEVERAL years and I'm only using warm water in a spray bottle.  Some of it's easy, then I run into areas that want to "remain" stuck on the wall.
   I'll have to use the the painters tape on the crown molding in that room next.  I'm counting this as "low intensity" exercise, so I'm counting 2 calories per minute.

Sammy me had to wake me up for his morning "story time" this morning.  I fell asleep in the chair in front of the television.  I felt this little push and he was standing next to the chair "talking" to me.  I picked him up and he settled in for the story once again about how I found him and how happy that I did.

    Frankie,

                          I just found the pictures of your trip and read all about it.
       
                           You do have a wonderful way of describing everything, it

                            sounds wonderful and definately my kind of trip.
 
                              I think quite a lot of English people came over and started

                              Plantations. When I was in New Orleons I found ancestor"s

                              with my maiden name, which was not a common name.  I

                               should love to visit some old plantation areas.

Good Afternoon!

I am going to leave for Soul Food Supper in a short while and will then go on to my opera orchestra rehearsal!  Busy day! 

The JOY games/luncheon went well.  Skip and I have learned ( are learning) to play 42, and we again played with our friend and her mother who has recently moved to our area from San Antonio. 

The luncheon was delicious!!  Pulled pork on buns, cole slaw, broccoli slaw salad, okra and tomatoes, deviled eggs (Skip), Bugle chips and onion dip (me), and for dessert a lady brought angel food cake, strawberries, and whipped cream, and my dump cake turned out good!  There was hardly any left of it.  It would have been good warm and with ice cream, as someone said! (Frankie?)

I did a little work in the house this afternoon;  straightened up the den, dusted, then tried to get the kitchen back in order after making the dump cake and Skip's deviled eggs.  We left in a hurry this morning!!

Pepe,
I really don't have all that much energy and my house is not really too straight.  Right now, I have a bag with St. Patrick's placemats and other decorations;  a bag still with red Valentine paper plates and napkings, a bag with Bridal Fair things in it, a bag with my shopping ads and coupons and list for the week.  I am definitely a "bag lady" :lol
 I think the idea of a cleaning lady might be to your liking.  I know several ladies who have a cleaning lady who comes every two weeks.  If you had someone who could do the floors and bathrooms and kitchen, I bet that would help out a lot. 
Good that your blood tests turned out well, but I am so sorry you are in such pain that you couldn't enjoy your outings to Walmart and McDonald's.  I am so thankful that I no longer have that lower left side back pain that I had for a few days.  I wish your pain would go away, too.  :hugs

Sharon,
That topping for sweet potatoes sounds good.  At the Road House restaurant, they bring out sweet potatoes "drowning" in butter and brown sugar!! :shock 

Frankie,
You have done so well and all on your own to lose 50 pounds.  I just need more will power and to do more walking!!   Your picture with Lewis looks great.  Skip is about a foot taller than me, so I almost need to stand on a box when we have our picture made standing!! :lol   I want to hear more about Branson from you before we go.  The dinner on the riverboat sounds wonderful!  We are booked for four days and three nights, so I think we should be able to really see a lot in that time!  :bigsmile

Glory,
How do you think I would look with golden highlights in my curly reddish brown hair?  Do you think they would show up?  I would love to see a picture of you with your "new" hair color.

Betty,
I really enjoyed seeing all the table displays and as soon as Skip can help me get the pictures on the computer, I will post a few at a time, kind of like I did my Valentine snow pictures.  I can't wait to hear all about your coming Clay trip. 


The DWTS thread in Fun Stuff has been revived.  I've posted pictures of all of the "stars" and listed who they are partnered with.  Some of the pro dancer names I did not recognize!  Maks is back, so that's the most important thing.   I see his partner is the ESPN news lady who was in the news a short while ago because someone had a peep hole into her hotel room and took pictures of her "au natural."  :shock   I just hope she's a good dancer.  I think she is tall and they usually give Maks the tall gals!!  :dance

I hope you all have a lovely evening!  :hugs

Prissy, I sell so many purses that I call myself that too :lol
Last year when I was in Orlando on a buy trip I ordered a sweet potato not knowing how it would be served :eek when you say drowning you aren't kidding.  I ordered fish and was smart enough to ask for no sauce, but was shocked at the butter and brown sugar on the sweet potato.  I dumped it all in a bowl and ate around was was left.

Sharon,

One of my favorite all time shows was THE NANNY with Fran Drescher.  In one of the shows, Fran is being audited by the IRS, and she has her receipts, etc., in different purses;  a purse for each year!!   :lmao   I actually have all of my hospital insurance information in a bag, and my prescription information in a pretty box!!  :bigsmile  I do actually have files in file cabinets, too!! :wink

Sweet potatoes are like a dessert anyway, so they don't really need to be "drowned" in all that butter and brown sugar!  :shock

We talked ourselves out of walking outside this evening - it was sunny today, but the wind still had a bite!

Pepe -  :hugg I'm sorry your trip did not go well - wish you could somehow feel better. I think you should get a cleaning lady for the heavy work - including changing the linens on your bed. I know all of you get tired hearing about the Council On Aging, but our Council does have aides that come in twice a week to clean - please call and see if your Council offers this service (they should offer other services, too - check out what is available in your area.) The housecleaning is not free, but it costs very little.

Betty - glad you found the vacation Thread. There are several plantaions within 30 miles of my home - one holds an arts festival every summer - I always think of Jeanne! Artists sell their beautiful creations - the only problem is that the temperature is usually around 100 for this festival.

JoAnn - sounds like you will get the border off before Friday  :clap

Prissy - almost everyone that I know here has been to Branson several times. (We've gone alone, with the grandchildren, and on a bus trip). I will start collecting recommendations for you. (You also HAVE to go to the restaurant where they throw homemade yeast rolls at you.  :lol )

Sharon - Maks' Feet???  :lmao

Have a good evening, everybody - I'll try to check back before bedtime.

Good Morning Sharon-- :wave  I already grabbed a cup of coffee but if you have any fresh fruit for breakfast today, I'll take what you have! 

I was so tired last night after taking off that silly boarder.. I finally finished at 7:10.  I even ate my dinner in bed watching television.  I think I was asleep before 9:00!

Frankie-- :clap on your weight loss!  That was fantastic.  I ate a slice of pizza at Mom's meeting yesterday.  I haven't done that in over a year.  I was hungry and that is all that was there.  I don't even like pizza and my stomach has "talked" to me every since eating it. 

Pepe--We picked up a recent COPD information card for you at the meeting.  I'll try to send it next week after surgery.  It gives the toll free hot line of the COPD Foundation and they also have a COPD Digest that you can subscribe to.  I think that it comes out every three months.   

I've got to get the garbage out to the curb as soon as it gets light this morning.  I was just too tired to set the canisters out last night. 
   I also have to go grab Sammy, it's his "story" time in the next few minutes.

I've met a new friend on the OFC.  She lives close in Arlington, TX.  When she saw my page, she contacted me saying that she had no "Clay" friends near her.  We're meeting each other for the first time today for lunch at Luby's.  It will be nice to renew the  "old" Clay excitement!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S  DAY IN 13 DAYS!

JOANN, how wonderful that you are having lunch and meeting a new friend.  I had heard if you spray fabric softner on wall paper that it will help take it off.  Hubby took off a wide border in my bathroom and than he painted.  He told me he really washed the glue from the paper off really good but I don't think so as the paint is starting to peel where that border was on the wall.  It has to be done over and that is bad as it took me three  years to get him to paint it the first time.  Love that Sammy looks forward to his story time.  Who will be taking you to the hospital for surgery tomorrow?

Good Morning!

With all the hustle and bustle getting things together for the JOY luncheon yesterday, I forgot my once a week pill, so I just took it this morning!  That's the first time I've forgotten it on a Wednesday in a while!

Rehearsal last evening went until 10 pm, one of our latest yet!  This evening, the dress rehearsal, then performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Skip and I planned on going to the Denim & Diamonds fund raiser on Saturday, but for a while last night, it looked like I would miss it because I was needed at the Saturday performance.  Luckily for me, another violinist will be there on Saturday to take my place!! :violin2

Our dinner last night at Soul Food supper was home made chili and potato soup, salad bar, corn bread and rolls, and cookies for dessert.  I was still so full from the JOY luncheon that I had just the chili with cheese and corn bread.

Pepe,
I'm sorry you had a painful night.  I hope that you have a better day on this sunshiny day in East Tawas!  We are having another sunny day and our temperatures are supposed to be in the 60's all week!  :wheee

JoAnn,
Great that you have met a new Clay friend. Will Jennie be able to go to lunch, too?  This reminds me of when I first met Carol and also another local Clay fan, Vickie!  We still plan to meet you at the hospital after Meals on Wheels tomorrow, so let us know the address where you will be.

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Thursday!

Good Morning! It is pretty here, too - sun shining - and it is supposed to be warm this afternoon. I'm about to run some errands (don't have to leave the car, so the boys can go, too), then I plan to come home and work outside - going to clean the porches and walkways. They have lots of leaves and other debris on them. Prissy - I am going to by-pass St. Patrick's day and go straight to Easter decorations. I want to get in the barn today and at least find the wreaths for the doors.

JoAnn - I went to sleep early last night, too. Thought I would watch Oprah's Academy Award Special, but I didn't see a minute of it (that's what I get for trying to watch TV from bed).  :clap that you've found another Clay friend. I've always envied all of you lucky enough to have a Clay friend close by.

Meesa - I'm enjoying the early photos.

Pepe - I meant to tell JoAnn that wallpaper remover is nothing but a little fabric softener in water - it really does help a lot.

Sharon and Prissy (and everyone else, too). You would enjoy that restuarant in Branson - you have to really be careful if you get up from the table, though - more than one person has been hit in the head with a roll. The only way you get a roll is to catch one!  :lol Just raise your hand, and a hot roll will be headed your way!

LAMBERTS CAFE (http://www.vacationsmadeeasy.com/BransonMO/pointsOfInterest/LambertsCafenearBransonMO.cfm)


Glory - maybe you need to talk to your doctor before exercising - or maybe you just did too much the first time?

Have a fun Thursday, everyone - see you later in the day................

Jan,
Sounds like a fun day!  Good to see you checking in.

Glory,
I will think about the highlights!  I'm sure your hair is beautiful.


As I posted before, I went to the Woman's Club on Tuesday and saw many beautiful "tablescapes"  (tables set up with dishes, centerpieces, etc.)  Here is the Mardi Gras table!   As you can see, there are lots of masks, beads,  and very colorful dinnerware!

I AM NOT SURE WHAT TO DO I LOVE IT BUT HOLLIE AND COREY MAY NOT STAY HERE. I DECIDED TO POSPONE THE EXCERCISE CLASS AS I CANNOT DEAL WITH MORE THAN ONE CRISIS AT A TIME. ICOULD BUY A PEICE OF LAND OUT BY MY PASTOR AND PUT A NICE DOUBLEWIDE ON IT. OR I COULD MOVE TO OUTER MONGOLIA. I AM UPSET JUST GOING TO GIVE IT TO THE LORD TO DEAL WITH.

GLORY, oh dear I was afraid that was going to happen and after  you put the money into the new flooring.  That is not fair I would  ask him to reimburse me i think.  I think it  unfair that your landlord didn't mention he might want to sell it before you did all that work to HIS house.  I don't have any advice for you on this one.  I was wondering how you would do with the exercise class seeing that your back and neck bothers you so much and you have problems with it.  Maybe you shouldn't do that and just take nice walks.

FRANKIE, I never get tired of hearing what you have to say on the Council of Aging.  I don't see anything listed here like that.  We are just a few small towns up here not big enough for that I don't think.

PRISSY, love the pictures of the table.  I see the Made Gras beads on everything.  Love it so pretty.

I'm back from my lunch.  My new friend is very nice.  She and I got acquainted and this is the start to what I hope will be a nice, new friendship.  We really don't live that far apart either.  Both hoping that Clay will come to our area this summer if he tours.

 Just can't seem to get thrilled over the upcoming concert at the Biltmore.  I just don't care that much for outdoor concerts.  I'd rather take my chances on getting a up close ticket in a nice, air conditioned  building.

Good (late) Afternoon!

Skip and I went to Costco and Market Street grocery store this afternoon.  I am going to fix us something for a light dinner before I leave for the opera orchestra rehearsal in a short while!

JoAnn,
Your cousin Randy is a real gem.  How nice of him to come up and take you for your surgery and then start painting the rooms for you all.  Good luck with your foot!  Skip has done really well with his foot surgery.  Now, he no longer uses the motorized carts in the stores.  I think he kind of misses them, however!  :lol

Pepe,
I'm glad you enjoyed the Mardi Gras table.  That was the "busiest" looking of all the tables.  I will post more pictures with each post!!

Glory,
Oh, my!  What a dilemma!   If you decide not to buy the house, then I guess the landlord can put it on the market!!   I know you will be praying to make the right decision.   Hang in there!!

Sharon,
Lambert's Restaurant sounds like a real "hoot!"  Love the graphic you posted!  There was an  I LOVE LUCY episode where Ricky had Lucy on a tight schedule.  In one scene, they were having guests for dinner and the timing of everything was so fast, that Ethel had to throw the rolls from the kitchen to Lucy who caught them with a catcher's mitt!   :lmao  (Just saw your last post.  I'm glad you like the tablescapes!!  Never fear!  I have lots more to post!) :thumb

I hope you all have a great evening! :hugs


More tablescape pictures!!

This one is more subdued than the Mardi Gras table, but still lovely.  I call this the Terra Cotta table.  As you can see, there is a quilt for the tablecloth, and a large watering can for the centerpiece.  Terra cotta dishes and rabbits on the table, too; even a terra cotta wine cooler and coasters!!  This was kind of a "garden" or "outdoor picnic" setting.

Glory - I don't know what to tell you - I think, especially since you have spent money on the house, that you should have been given a lease! I can understand your landlord wanting to get out from under some responsibility, but it doesn't seem fair to you. Hope something will work out.  :hugg

Pepe - Every county in the country is given money for a Council On Aging through the Older Americans' Act. The trouble is that only the largest city in your county might benefit - I'm sure some agency is getting the money. Here, even though the main building is in Many, services such as meal delivery and housekeeping services are provided to everyone in our Parish (we don't have counties here). Google "Council On Aging" and see if you come up with anything. You might also try "Services For Seniors in_____________ (the name of your county). I had talipia for supper tonight (Lewis had the last of a roast and gravy). We also had fresh cauliflower. I forgot to tell you we are eating things from the winter garden - had fresh broccoli last night.


Sharon and Prissy - I wish I could be there to see you catch rolls with catchers mitts   :lol (I do think it is a good idea to take one!!

Prissy - beautiful tables - especially the Terra cotta - everything on that table would look great in my kitchen!

JoAnn - I have to disagree about outdoor concerts. One of my favorite Clay memories is of listening to him sing and looking up at the stars in Atlanta  :thud  Glad the meeting with your new Clay friend went well.  :clap We will be thinking about you tomorrow  :hugg I know Prissy will keep us posted on how you are doing.

Have a great evening, everyone - see you later if I can...............

Glory,
I'm glad to hear that you can stay in your house and continue to rent if you want.  It sounds like the landlord thought you might be interested in buying instead of renting;  maybe building up some equity.

Frankie,
I can just see the terra cotta dishes and accessories in your new kitchen!  I like those plates with the flower pot and little tree or plant on them. 


I just returned from the orchestra practice for the opera this weekend!  Awful rehearsal, so that must mean good performances!! :thumb


One more tablescape before I head for bed!  :tobed


This one was simple but elegant and unusual.  Notice that the napkin is at an angle on the plate and the silverward is turned over and lined up at an angle to the plate.  It looks like a purple and green theme to this table.  I think I see an eggplant and artichokes.

Good Morning!

JoAnn has probably just gone into surgery.  I'm sure Jennie will call when surgery is over.  As I recall about 45 minutes in surgery, and then recovery for a while.  We have Meals on Wheels, and will check on her before and/or after our deliveries.  The hospital she is in is only about 10 minutes from us.

I will check back in if I get any news.

I'm glad you all are enjoying the "tablescapes."  I loved seeing them and did take lots of pictures! :wink

Sharon,
If I set a table with my silverware like that, I think everyone would think it rather odd!!  :lol  But in that room with all the different tables, it just looked different and unusual;  not necessarily strange!

JAYNE, I am so glad Laura is doing well in her Freshman year.  I know Kyle had a difficult time with it so I can imagine how relieved  you are that Laura has the maturity to deal with the first  year of college.  Good for her.

PRISSY, love the tablescapes.  One of the cooks on FoodNetwork called Sandra always does tablescapes with her menu for the day.  You should watch you would get lots of ideas from her, not sure of the time she is on.  Always shows her tablescapes at the end of the show after the cooking.

FRANKIE, I found out that Alpena has the Council for Aging benefits.  About a hour and a half drive from me.

Good Morning! I'm checking in before going outside - have more signs to paint. Commercial property is in high demand here, due to the Super Walmart being built and the Haynesville Shale (I think I mentioned a year or so ago that natural gas has been discovered in Louisiana - our Parish and the surrounding Parishes are right on top of the
Shale - our quiet country life may be changing).

Jayne -  :hugg so glad to see you here. I noticed on the weather this morning that most of Florida is colder today than it is here!  :clap :clap :clap that Laura and Kyle will be home, and a special congratulations to Laura! I still have all of Idol taped, but haven't watched one show yet.

Meesa - only a week or so until your wedding - I'm wishing for every happiness for you, and hope all of the plans and details are finished.

Sharon - a good morning for hot chocolate and coffee - it is still cool outside, but is going up to 70 today!

Prissy - another beautiful table - thank you for checking on JoAnn.

Pepe - I'm sorry to hear that your Council is so far away.

Glory - congratulations on the new baby! I didn't realize she was due so soon. Glad you won't have to move!

Happy TGIF, everyone - see you later...............

Good Morning (again)!

Skip and I stopped at the hospital before going to pick up our meals for Meals on Wheels, and JoAnn had already been dismissed from recovery.  I called Jennie and they had just arrived home.  The surgeon said everything went fine and he shaved away some of that extra bone and did some work on ligaments, too.  JoAnn is supposed to keep her foot elevated with an ice pack on it for about two days.  When she gets up she must use her crutches and not put any weight on the foot.

JoAnn, Jennie, and their cousin Randy all got up at 4 this morning to be at the hospital by 5:30, so I hope they are all having a nice long mid morning nap.  I won't call for a while to give them time to rest. 


Pepe,
I have seen the food show you are talking about where the lady does the beautiful tablescapes, too.  I need to check when that show comes on!

Jayne,
Congratulations to Scooter!   Great that they will both be with you on their "individual" Spring Breaks.

Meesa,
We need some details about your wedding plans, if you have time.  Will your nephews be ring bearers?  What will your music be?  I know you're busy, so I understand if you don't have time to post.

Glory!
Grandma again!  Now, does this make No. 5, or have I lost count!  :lol   I'm so happy for you!

Sharon,
Nice of you to save JoAnn's coffee for her!!  Love the chocolate as usual!!


If JoAnn calls, I will post immediately!  No special plans except for the opera performance this evening!


Another tablescape!!

This one was very formal with the gold and burgundy runners, white dishes and crystal, and I suppose the covered white bowls are for a soup course!  Another beautiful centerpiece!

Hello Everyone,

I'm back! :bigsmile   I wore my crutches and hobbled into the office.  It's just one bedroom past mine.  My foot isn't hurting, at least not yet.   I was "minding my own business" in pre-op at 7:20 this morning and then the next thing I knew, I was back in my room having coffee and two graham crackers.  :lmao
   I guess they did everything they were supposed to. I feel cold because of the ice pack. 

Sharon-Thanks for the coffee--they delivered it to me in post op! :bigsmile

Thanks Prissy and Skip for the call.   :hugg

 :wave JOANN, glad you are home and the surgery was fast and successful.  Thank goodness for your cousin coming, he is really a jewel.  While you are on crutches it is great that he is around to help out if needed.

PRISSY, love that table setting.  I am in love with the soup tureens on the table.  They are gorgeous.

FRANKIE, how much property do you have?  Is there money to be made by some of the residents?  Don't know to much about natural gas and what they pay.

                         and don"t try to do too much.



         GRANDMA GLORY  ,
                                             Congratulations on your new little angel.   Hope Mamma and baby are fine.
                                   
                                               Thank goodness! you don"t have to move. The landlord possibly realized

                                             what a good tenant he has.

    Frankie,
                     I"m glad you are being kept busy selling, things must be hopping there.
                        Wish it were here in Florida. On the other hand, Disney brought lots of
                       activity here, lots of building which is standing empty now.

                         I liked Orlando and Winter Park much better before Disney, they were
                          quiet and pretty then.
                   
                                I remember you said your Mother had Lupus, what were her biggest problems??
                                 My check ups with my cardiologist and primary doctor are both due at the end
                                 of this month so I will  get thier oppinions.

                   do the things you want to do.

                    This has been a busy week as I am going to Raleigh next Weds. and my daughter leaves for
                    Scotland on the Friday. I"m trying to keep up with the laundry and housecleaning ,never mind

                    The tablescapes are beautiful, I can"t decide which one I like the best.

Sign is finished -  the one we really needed. There is another one that I could paint, but I am out of the mood. Lewis says it is hard having such a moody employee  :lol

Pepe - many people here have made a lot of money from gas leases - as much as $25,00 per acre, and that is only for the lease - they will get an additional check each month once the wells start pumping.  The smallest amount we've heard of for a lease is $6,000 an acre. It is amazing. The gas companies started leasing in the Shreveport area, and are just now getting down to our Parish. Not everyone will directly benefit, of course. People with lots of land will benefit the most. We are just glad that the economy has been helped so much by all of this.  We are getting so many requests for office space, and there is none to rent. All of the gas companies have employees that spend all day in the court house checking land titles to see who is the legal owner of property - they all need office space. We may rent out the back room in our office building - we only use it now for extra file cabinets, which can be moved to another room.

Prissy - another beautiful table - I love seeing them.

Betty - my Mom did not have Lupus - they thought she might have it, but when all of the testing was finished, she did not. Lewis' Aunt did have Lupus, and she had many symptoms. It is hard to say what was directly caused by Lupus itself. (For instance, she had a lot of breathing problems, but she was also a life long smoker). Lupus, from what I understand, can have many symptoms, and can cause someone to have only a couple of problems, or a lot of problems. I am praying that you won't have a lot of problems.  :hugg I am so excited for you - you will be in Raleigh before you know it!  :purpbana

JoAnn -  so glad you are already home! Hope you have some Happy Pills to keep the pain away for the next couple of days!

Glory - hope you get to see the baby soon. If they email photos to you, email them on to me and I will post for you. My email address is in my profile.

Have a good afternoon, everyone - time to straighten the house.

Good Afternoon!

I don't know if JoAann, Jennie and Randy have slept, but I just slept for about an hour in the recliner!  :shock


JoAnn,
What are you doing out of bed?  I thought you were supposed to keep that foot elevated with ice?  I guess that was just a short time up!  I'm glad the surgery went well.  I am assuming you have some pain pills for when the anesthesia/pain medicine wears off!

Pepe,
Soup tureens.  That's what those white covered bowls are with the chicken on top of the lids.  Very cute.  I have not seen individual tureens like that before.

Pepe, Sharon, Betty,and Frankie,
I'm glad you are enjoying the tablescapes.  I just love a beautifully set tables.  These are a little extreme, and I don't know that you could see the person across from you with the elaborate centerpieces, but I really got such pleasure out of seeing them.  I told Skip it was a real treat for me!

Frankie,
Great to hear there is so much real estate business in your area and now a new Walmart coming in!!  How close will that be to you?  Some people are glad to see Walmart in their community, others are not.  I always feel badly for the small businessman who has to compete with Walmart.  We are having another beautiful sunny day.

Betty,
Just a short time before you go to Raleigh.  I will miss not getting to see you there.  I know you will have a great time with the "Raleigh people" and others able to attend.

I am going to fix us some lunch and do a little "house" stuff.  We may go out again for a short while.

I hope you all are having a lovely afternoon. :hugs


Here is another kind of "wild" table setting:  flamingos and bright pink and green boas and pink gerber daisies on a navy with white dots tablecloth!  I recognize the pink glassware (I have all kinds of pink glassware/dishes), and the floral pink dishes, a dear friend (now deceased) had these same dishes!

Prissy - the pink and green table is so cute! I have a small collection of pink
Depression Glass - mainly just serving pieces - bowls and plattters. The Walmart will be only 3-4 miles from my house. It is being built in what is now an open field outside of town between our town and the next little town just north of us. It may have an effect on the two grocery stores in town, hard to say. There is already a Walmart here, so the other businesses should not be effected too much. Personally, I go to  Walmart only once or twice a month. I was so happy when the Walgreens came to town - I can run in for small items without haveing to go to Walmart!  :clap

       Frankie,
                          We had natural gas in Yorkshire and it was much cheaper than electricity.

                         Thanks for the Lupos info. so far the constant rashes and itching have been the worst.
                          I"v had fibromyalgia  for a long time so it may have nothing to do with Lupus.

                                       Trying to get everything done before I  leave.

                                  I told Corina I was going to have Salmon every night while she is in Scotland!!!

                         at the Gala.

                             Does the Biltmore tempt you? I am hoping he comes closer. I am still going to

Frankie,

I inherited the pink depression glass from my grandmother and I have all kinds of different pieces of it.  I think I only have a setting of six of everything, so I have used it for small group luncheons.  It was fun trying to use almost everything.

Frankie, the terra cotta table with the quilt for a tablecloth and large watering can for the centerpiece....I sent those pictures to a lady from church and she recognized the coasters as the little saucers for small terra cotta pots,  and as I looked again, I think the charger plates were large terra cotta saucers for large pots!!   I can just see that copper water can centerpiece in the nook area of your kitchen (where you left the wall blank above the lower cabinets for seasonal decorations).
THis is still one of my favorite tablescapes and I think it would look great for a garden club table setting!

We have two Walmarts close to us;  one only about 10 minutes away, but they are in very busy areas with lots of restaurants, gas stations, and other shops around them. 


Betty,
 
Biltmore is tempting.  Skip and I went years ago and did have a tour of the mansion and the grounds!  I don't think I went to his concert on the grounds!! :dunno   I looked at my list of concerts in the thread CLAY IN CONCERT AND YOU  and I don't see Ashville there! 
I will wait and see if he comes close to us. 

Like JoAnn, I have not enjoyed his outdoor concerts and I think it has been because we had awful seats at all of them, including Atlanta!   I will wait for an indoor concert, too.  I wish he would come back to NOKIA in Grand Prairie, just about 25 minutes from me!! :wheee

Good Morning Everyone,


  I had a good night until I woke up at 3 this morning to go to the bathroom.  It took me about 20 minutes to get there and back from approx. 15 feet distance.  I then smacked the sore foot on the bed while trying to put it back on the raised pillows!  I also put Sammy in bed at 3 this morning so he wouldn't try to wake me up to go outside.
   He was so cute, he snuggled in next to my good leg and started giving me "love kisses!"  I also took a pain pill at 3 this morning.  The foot "waking" up and the unexpected hit on the bed doesn't do any good to the foot.
   We both got up at 6:15 with his "outside" signal and by the time I got the boot on and used my crutches he was wiggling" at the door in a hurry.  I took another pain pill at 7:00 since that marked 4 hours.  Glad I did, I took a good "hard" sit on the one and only step in the house.  I misjudged the crutches and ended up on the butt! :lmao  Glad the carpet and  my "well padded" behind were there.  The foot just throbbed for a few minutes.
   I'm on my way to bed now for a morning nap!  I just hope that by Friday, when I go to the doctor, I will have mastered the crutches. :lmao

Have a great day!

Good Morning!

The opera performance was not over until 10:30 pm, so I was late getting home and even later going to bed!!  This is a loooooong opera with lots of dialogue as well as singing!  Funny, too!

This evening Skip and I are going to the Denim and Diamonds fund raiser (silent and live auctions plus "tasting samples" from several restaurants), so I will not play in tonight's opera performance, but another violinist will sit in my place, so it should be fine!


Frankie,
I know you will have fun at the "early" soccer gain of Kaitlyn and then enjoy having Kaitlyn come back home with you.

Jan,
Sorry about your post, but I've had it happen, too.  Sometimes when I'm writing a long post, I will stop and copy and save it just in case I lose it!

JoAnn,
I see you are online.  I hope your foot is not too painful today.  The pain pills should help. 

Pepe,
I hope you have another bright sunny day and that you have a good day without too much pain! :hugs

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Super Saturday! :hugs

In honor of Meesa's upcoming wedding, here is a tablescape featuring a wedding cake, champagne glasses, and a setting fit for a wedding reception!

Hi Gals :wave

Yesterday I wrote a long post and it disappeared.
 I even took notes  :icon_rolleyes:
But I cannot remember now and am not going over all the posts again.
 So I will just say hello and  wish I were going to see Clay with the group who are going.
I will not be seeing him unless he comes to Tampa.

I guess the days of the big Clay tours are over.
Maybe he will shine somewhere else, like TV, movies, etc. Or make a whale of a CD.
I think traveling long distances with the cost of flying and tickets in this present economy is not going to bring a lot of people who used to do a lot of traveling to concerts.

We have a beautiful concert hall and the attendance is way down this year.

Tonight my son and I go to the symphony for an all Brahms concert.
 I used to get all dressed up to attend the concerts but because of the cold I have to wear a heavy coat now and it spoils the fun of dressingup  :bang :bang

JAYNE
What ever happened to the sun????
 I used to be tan by this time and also working out in the yard.
My yard at the studio is covered with dead plants :doh,
 Last year my son planted the whole back area with hibiscus, they are all dead now.
 ANd when I drive around the town I see so many of the typical Florida foliage that is dead now.it makes me sad.
I want to put my sweaters and jackets away and get out my shorts and capris and sandals again.
 Do you think we will be able to do that soon?????

BETTY
The weather up North where you are must even be colder. Brrrrrrrr

PRISSY
Love your table scapes. Something I cannot do. I cannot set a nice table or arrange flowers or anything that is decorative.
That side of my brain does not function well. But you are a real decorator, both in your home , yard and any craft you do.  :clap :clap

FRANKIE
Have fun on your little vacation. Tonight I have to chose which dragonfly to wear on which jacket. Still mad that I cannot figure out the *&&&%)($$  photo bucket.
I used to have so much fun posting pictures.
 Well, those days are gone. And afrraid I have lost all those pictures now :bang

MEESA
Take lots of pictures of the wedding. We want to see your bridal gown and all the trimmings!!!

GLORY
I would stay in your cute little house, you seem to be so happy there.

JoANNE
Good luck on the crutches. I never could master them when I had to have them.
 In fact it was easier to just to hop. Sounds like you just are an eager beaver and cannot stay still. Take it easy!!!!

Well, I am on an etching kick, so here I go, my copper plate is waiting for me.

Luv :hugg

Well I finally made it on.  I tried to get on the thread this morning but it kept saying it was not available.  Thought maybe we didn't pay our rent.  I have no idea how much it is or how much has been collected, maybe we should have a financial thread for the members so they know these things.

GLORY, I couldn't be happier that you have a new baby to love.  Like I said if you ever get to many just send Evie and Miller over to my house.  I am so happy you do not have to move.  You just got everything fixed the way you want it.  Do you have a signed lease if not maybe you should ask  your landlord for one. 

PRISSY, so glad you enjoy table scapes that means that we get to see all of them.  What beautiful pictures.   You need to make you a mini scrapbook of these pictures to help you out when you need to design a table for something again.  What fun it would be to do this for a living. 

BETTY, I sure do want you feeling better for your trip.  I give you so much credit fo doing all you do with so much pain you endure.  My body is getting worse as it is hard to stand  up now to even get dressed or comb my hair.  Most of the time I have to lean on something.

Good  Afternoon Everyone!

  I'm between "catnaps" at the moment.  I was told to wear my boot when I was off the bed and when I do, that is what makes my foot hurt so bad.  It is still swollen and it presses tight against the side of the boot. 

   Sharon:  I try to be "happy" as much as I can.  I just feel so ashamed that I can't help my cousin paint or help Mom for the next few days!  I feel like I'm letting them down when both of the are waiting on me.
  Yesterday, when the nurse gave me the "happy" juice, I said, "Good, I like to be happy!" She laughed and said that I was so happy at that time, she "ordered" Happier" juice because I was the only pre-op" patience laughing and smiling in the room! :lmao
     
I'm going to prop my leg up on a chair and try to work on the 1,000 piece puzzle my cousin(same one here) gave me for Christmas.  Since I'm "buzzing" right now from the pain pill, maybe it will be easy to find the pieces.  It's white on white! :hypno White snow, white birch trees and a pack of 5 wild wolves! :hypno

 Flora and her husband, Kent are coming by this afternoon to "volunteer" to start putting the vanity into Mom's bathroom tomorrow.  Randy has painted and is painting the crown molding in there as I type!  When we get the room redecorated, I will share a photo of the vanity that Mom fell in love with.  I "think" it is gorgeous myself.

Tummy is full---Frankie ---I even ate "diet" food for breakfast and lunch today.  I've also had two of the juiciest, sweetest oranges today to.  OF COURSE, I'LL BE EATING BIG TONIGHT THOUGH!  RANDY BROUGHT A REDFISH FILLET HE CAUGHT  IN THE OCEAN ON LAST WEDNESDAY!  WE ATE FRESH BOILED SHRIMP COOKED WITH SAUAGE, CORN AND NEW POTATOES LAST NIGHT. :bigsmile

Good Afternoon!

I colored my hair (roots included) and I'm again helping Skip with his wiring project! :pullhair   Someday this may be finished! :doh

Pepe,
I love beautiful table settings, and even though I'm not printing out these tablescape pictures, I do have them all in my Photobucket album, where I can go back and refer to them anytime.  When I decorate for different holidays, I go back and look at my pictures to see what I've done in the past so I can do it again! :lol  I was so inspired by the Mardi Gras table beads that I took green beads and shamrock necklaces and used them on the JOY tables at the luncheon last Wednesday!! 

Jan,
I considered all these tablescapes at the Woman's Club works of art, in a way!  It took very artistic, creative people to come up with these!

Sharon,
I'm glad you are enjoying the tablescapes.  They have given me lots of ideas for setting up tables! 


Here is a tablescape with the BLUES

Blue charger plates (look like Fiesta plates?), blue hydrangeas, with blueberries in the crystal glasses!  White daisies, white candles, white tablecloth and white accessories  with beautiful crystal and silver really set off the BLUE
Not all of the tables had chairs.  These "bamboo looking" chairs are silver, but many a time I see gold chairs like these in hotel ballrooms where the quartet has played weddings and/or receptions.

This is just a quick drive-by post. Kaitlyn is here (as well as Toby). We have been outside all afternoon. When PaPaw got home, we went for pizza (I had the allowed one thin crust piece), and now the big plans for tonight are to bake cookies and give all 3 dogs a bath!

JoAnn - when Kaitlyn comes in, I will show her her soccer present! Hope the pain does not last long, and I hope you master the crutches.

Hello to everyone - have to run -  hope to post and speak to everyone if Kaitlyn goes to sleep before I do (not much chance of that!  :lol ) In case I don't get back tonight - have a good night and sweet dreams!  :ghug

     Frankie,
                         Thank you for the Lupus information. I have an appointment with my cardiologist   
                          and my primary doctor at the end of this month so I have decided not to worry about
                           the Lupus until I talk to them.
 
                         Shirl called me today, she is trying to figure out if she can make it to the Biltmore. I am too.

                           I know Kaitlyn and Toby will have fun with you. Enjoy the cookie baking, just don"t eat them!!!

      JAN,
               I DECIDED TO DO SHORT POSTS BECAUSE MY LONG ONES ALWAYS GO PUFFA!!!!.

               Don"t worry about your hibiscus, ours get killed by the frost but they always come back.
                They are even starting to sprout new leaves. Have you tried petunias? We have three
                lovely pots of them and they don"t freeze, Just found that out this year.

                  I think Clay is doing the right thing by touring. He has to be seen and heard.
                   Touring alone is very expensive. lots of artists are doubling up now because of the economy.

                            I do hope he comes to Tampa and maybe we can get together.

                         Enjoy your concert tonight. It"s a shame  you have to wear a warm coat it"s more
     
                         fun to dress up. I plan on wearing some warm clothing in Raleigh. I"m even taking

                               My heating pad!!!!

      Glory,
                     I think it might be wise to sign another lease, it would give you some security.

                         The patio furniture sounds lovely and you can enjoy it in the summer.
                   
                          Grandma" deserves it.

               I love the combination of Royal Blue  against the white and silver.
                 The contrast is so eye catching.

                     You have such fun with all your activities.

     JoAnne,
                     Do take care with those crutches, we don"t want you falling and doing
                   more damage. It must have been very painful when you hit it.

                      Those boots take so long to get on, Sammy did well to wait.How long
                      do you have to wear it?
                           
                              You can take it easy and supervise the painting.!!!!

         Pepe,
                    I feel so bad for you, hurting the way you do and almost afraid to move.

                       Seeing I"m not as young as I used to be, I decided to go on trips as long
                       as I can.  My husband never wanted to go anywhere so I"m quite used
                       to travelling alone.

Good Evening!

We just returned from the Denim & Diamonds fund raiser and tasting!!   It started at 6, so we stayed a couple of hours.   I am absolutely stuffed.  There was barbecue, Mexican food, deli sandwiches, Italian food, a chocolate fountain, and more.  All delicious!  I had "sweet tea" so I will probably feel the effects of caffeine tonight!

Lots of items to bid on in the silent auction;  I looked at everything and bid on a programmable thermostat and won it at a fraction of its cost!  :thumb   I did bid on another item, but someone out bid me.

JoAnn,
Randy is the perfect house guest!  Not only does he paint, but he cooks, too!  I hope your foot is not too painful!  What happened to staying in bed with your foot elevated and an ice pack on it?  :naughty

Sharon,
No I won't pull out my hair since I colored the roots, or tried to!! :pullhair    :lmao

Betty,
I had this box of hair color that said medium blonde and the color in the bottle looked red! :shock   I must have had this color for a long time because while I was coloring my hair the plastic squeeze bottle cracked across the middle and I had to get the color out from the side of the bottle.  So from a box that said blonde and a bottle of red looking dye, my hair turned out a medium brown!  :lol
I love the striking colors of some of the tablescapes, too.

And speaking of tablescapes, here is one of the more simple ones, but still pretty!!

I really like the colorful pitcher filled with flowers and the bright colors of the table setting;  a real combination of different dinnerware and unusual charger plates!  Notice that the napkin is tucked under the dinner plate and hangs down off the edge of the table.  I have seen a napkin placement like this before at a wedding reception.

The last two are my favorite tablescapes :clap love the colors and the charger plates are really neat :clap
JoAnn coffee for you, Randy, Jennie and all, hoping that foot is OK :hugg
hot tea and hot chocolate and chocolate donuts are here.  Jan come and tell us about the concert and grab a few :wink I also made some banana/walnut bread to snack on :yum I slept in a bit this morning, felt good even though all three kitties were trying to get me up :lol

Good Morning!

I am going to try to get a post in, unless Kaitlyn wakes up. I got up to let the dogs outside - looks like another beautiful day. It was 72 degrees here yesterday!  :bouncy We plan to enjoy today, because rain is predicted for the next 5 days.

I see that Clay and Ruben have announced another concert - in NY in August. Wonder if this is going to be a full blown concert tour, or just a couple of appearances?

Pepe - I forgot to tell you that Kaitlyn picked a huge vase full of buttercups and paper whites yesterday. The fruit trees are about to pop out in blooms, too.

Jan - there is a help section at Photobucket - you can email them with problems. I'm sure all of your photos are still there. As Betty said, your hibiscus will come back - ours freeze down every winter, and do come back from the roots. Hope the symphony was good last night.

JoAnn - how great that Randy cooks as well as paints. Hope he and your Mom are spoiling you - stay off that foot!!!

Prissy - more tablescapes  :clap :clap :clap I hope to find a few new Easter things for my table this week - I have my 3 large bunnies, but want to change the ribbon around their necks, and hope to find a new table runner or placemats. Denim and Diamonds sounds like such fun!

Glory - I love that outdoor furniture - they had it at SAMS last year. I wanted either yellow or red, since our deck is off our bedroom. We chose the set with yellow because it also came with a fire pit.

Betty - hope you read all 5 pages of the Lupus article. As you see, it said that Lupus is sometimes hard to diagnose - sometimes takes years. I hope your doctor does all of the blood tests, and has a definite diagnosis. I hope you also read the part about people with Lupus needing rest - I am prescribing a long nap every afternoon! The problem with Shirl getting to small places is the wheelchair - it is so hard when she has to changes planes. She needs direct flights and good ground transposrttion. I hope she can make the concert, too.

We are going to make a SAMS run this afternoon (taking Kaitlyn and Toby home, too - she has school tomorrow). We are also going to Michaels to begin the process of framing all of Lewis' Saints newspapers for the office - hope we can find finished frames to buy, then have mats cut for the frames. I also hope I can find some above mentined things for my Easter table. I found out two days ago that my Sister is coming for Easter!  :purpbana

Sharon - I beat you here this morning (I can't believe I'm up so early two days in a row!) I'll check back later for donuts.............

GLORY , the outdoor furniture sounds so pretty.  I hope you get it as I want  you to have all those pretty things you so deserve.  I use to buy a Shamrock plant every year for my son who was born on St. Patrick's day.  Sometimes the flowers were white and sometimes I would find the pink flowers.  Hope you get another lease signed.

FRANKIE, I could almost smell the fresh morning air as you opened the door this morning to let the puppies out.  Nothing like a fresh spring morning is there?  Sounds like you are going to have a busy day today.  I didn't sleep well last night and just woke up  upset.  I was thinking my favorite time of year is coming and I don't know how I am going to do anything, like weed, fix Baltimore Oriol and H ummingbird food constantly, plant and fertilize flowers .  Can't have hubby take on anymore as he can't keep up with what he does  now.  Spring he will have mowing and weed whipping.  I remember last May asking my eye doctor if I could bend over to weed  yet, seems like everything has gone down hill since than. 

JOANN, be good and stay laying down so  your foot heals faster. 

PRISSY, sounds like  you had so much fun last night.  Love all those different types of food.  What was your favorites? 

BETTY, you have such a good outlook on life, I hope so much you have many more enjoyable trips to look forward to.   :hugg

SHARON, breakfast was wonderful, you are so good to us.  :hugg

Good Morning!

We just returned from Sunday School and will have lunch and then leave for the opera this afternoon.  I need to be there at 1:30 and Skip is going to this performance!  I just read him the synopsis, which is somewhat complicated like most operas are! :lol

Today is a rainy day.  I have not heard any forecasts for a while so did not know rain was expected.  It is not cold, however;  just a mild, rainy day!

We did enjoy the Denim & Diamonds and all the food!

Pepe,
I don't think I had a favorite.  The samples were not huge but very filling!  I hope you have a good day today!

Sharon,
I did not think of that!  The programmable thermostat will most likely have to be "wired" in!  :doh

Frankie,
It sounds like you are having a great time with Kaitlyn.  We do not have any flowers blooming yet, but I see the green stems and leaves "shooting" up!

Glory,
Your outdoor furniture sounds lovely.  I looked online at Walmart and did see some dark wicker furniture with red cushions.  Is the rug red stripe that you are getting?

I cannot open Photobucket so no tablescape in this post!  :j_sad1:

GLORY, I may be stepping out of bounds again like I usually do, but since you mentioned it, think your girls are being selfish and self centered again about you buying what you want and need.  I bet they wouldn't have said anything if the money was spent on them.  I guess they are thinking don't spend the inheritance on you as they might want something.  What a shame, buy and enjoy what you want, like I said you deserve it!!

Good Afternoon Everyone,


  I haven't done anything other then dozing, watching television and eating today.  I haven't had a bath since 4a.m. Friday before my surgery.  I did change into different p.j.s.!  My hair hasn't been washed or combed since Friday morning too!  I would scare off anybody stopping by, that's for sure! :lmao

Frankie:--- I think I might have found a new way to work on our abs!  Walk with crutches.  I "flinch" my stomach every step and boy, is my stomach muscles sore today!  I've been getting a good workout with the biceps and triceps too!

As Prissy said, it's rainy and overcast.  I have on my winter robe  too.  I guess I'll have to wash my hair and take a sponge bath tomorrow morning if I do go to my weight management class.  They might not let me in the door looking like I do now! :lmao

  The bathroom is looking so good.  Our neighbor, Kent is installing the vanity and my cousin Randy is almost through with the crown molding and cabinets.  I'll post a photo in a few days when everything is back in order.

Sammy slept on my bed all night long last night.  I don't want my foot under heavy covers, so I turned the electric blanket on high, slept on top of the covers with a coverlet and was as snug as a bug in a rug.  Sammy didn't move a muscle until 6:15 this morning.

  He did become another little "piglet" this afternoon running in the flowerbeds with his friend behind us.  He was a mud ball.

Good Evening!

We are back from the opera performance!  3 hours!  :shock  We came home to let the dogs out and may go out to eat a little later.  I don't know.  Now that I'm home, I'm not sure I want to go out again.  It has stopped raining, but it could start again.

JoAnn,
It sounds like the bathroom is really coming along.

Glory,
If you've had your heart checked, there may not be anything to worry about, but this could be something new??  It wouldn't hurt to check with your doctor.

Frankie,
I will set out my Easter things just after St. Patrick's day.  I believe Easter is the first Sunday in April so it will be here soon!

Sasha,
Pepe mentioned to me the lady chef on the FOOD NETWORK who does the tablescapes.  I need to check on when her show airs!


Hot pink tablecloth and gerber daisies with yellow tulips and flowers.  Pale green placemats with whimsical figures.

A quick post just to say Hello - it has been another beautiful day here, but the rain is starting, and is supposed to continue thru Thursday  :doh We had a good, fast shopping trip - went to SAMS, Michaels, and Pet Smart, and we still got home in just over three hours! I bought 2 new fish!  :bouncy

We are having a light supper (broccoli soup, turkey sandwiches) and getting ready to watch the Oscars. I love Steve Martin, and we have actually gone to see several of the nominated movies this year!

Sasha - I know you are excited waiting for your new baby to be born - hope you get the kitten you want, and I hope Chole loves him or her.  :hugg

Prissy - beautiful tables - I found the ribbon I wanted to refresh my ceramic bunnies, but I found nothing else. I am going to Hobby Lobby soon - the stores here are not open on Sunday. The Chef you are looking for on the Food Channel is Sandra Lee - the show where she shows the tablescapes is "Semi-Homemade Cooking". It comes on here on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m.

Prissy and Betty - I found something really good today, and it is Chocolate!!!   :purpbana I have been seeing commercials for Yoplait lite yogurt "Delites" They are a combination of lite yogurt and diet pudding. I just had a raspberry/chocolate combination, and it was so good - only 100 calories (the same as light yogurt).

Pepe - I wish so much that you could work in your yard and feed all of your animals. I hate that you are not feeling well.  :hugg

Glory - I have to second what Pepe said. I always begged my Mom to spend money on herself - she worked so hard to give us everything she could. You deserve anything you want, and you should not be made to feel guilty.

JoAnn - Lewis still has his crutches from when his foot was broken - he had to get extra long ones. I can try walking with them for exercise, but I would have to try it in very high heels so that they would fit under my arms.  :lol


Sharon - I am trying that recipe soon. I have to get some more sweet potatoes - all the ones I have are already baked! (I bake an iron skillet full every week, then warm them up one at a time in the microwave whenever I want one).

Meesa - In one week you will be married - I'm wishing for every happiness for you.

The Oscars are on - see 'ya later!

Hi everyone - Just thought I'd drop in and then decided to stay and read all these interesting posts.

Frankie - I'm definitely going to try that sweet potato recipe. Sounds delicious. I can't believe they only take 15 minutes to bake.  Also, those Yoplait delights are truly delicious. I just  bought some and they are really good.

Hi Shirley and Sharon - good to see you hear.

Prissy - It's so good to see your pictures and hear about what you and skip are up to.

Hi Glory - I often wonder if it is a curse or a blessing to be near family.  I guess it's great to have them around but I guess I'd like them to know that I don't criticize them so I don't want them to criticize what I do either. We are all too old for that.

Sasha - So good to hear from you , as usual. Love your posts.

Betty, JoAnn and Meese - a great big hello to all of you.

Meesa - Have a wonderful wedding!!!!

Good morning everyone.  So glad Sandra Bullock won :purpbana  about time like Glory said.  Taking the day of heading up the mountains taking advantage of the nice weather. 

Prissy and anyone else interested.  Here are some  from Sandra Lee-semi home made http://www.semihomemade.com/tablescapes/

Sharon:  im going to have to try that sweet potato recipe.  Longhorns restaurants serve a good one to.yours  sounds less fatening.

Good Morning!

Evelyn - it is always so good to see you here. Glad you had time to read back.

Glory - hope your friend can help you find some jobs - I also hope you can work part time,and still have time for you.

Sasha - enjoy your day off! Thank you for the link. Sandra Lee's show has the best tablescapes - I love the Children's' tables she always does for her nieces and nephews at Christmas (one year she made beautiful angel name cards out of sugar ice cream cones!) I'm happy that Sandra Bullock swept the awards - Golden Globes, SAG, and now the Oscars. I wouldn't have minded a tie with Merel Streep, though!

Sharon - thank you for breakfast - I am in a chocolate mood this morning. I hope the delights are available in your area, too - they are new. We bought a large box at SAMS that contains two flavors - the cocolate raspberry and a strawberry cheesecake  :bigsmile

Happy Monday, everyone!  :ghug

Good Morning!

I believe it is another cloudy day;  maybe more rain?   I thought it was chilly last night and turned the thermostat up (Sharon, the programmable one is still in the box!) :lol

As I was sleeping/partially awake, I was thinking of getting rid of some things I have today.  Some clothes in my closet I no longer wear and some of the dolls and toys I still have from when the granddaughters were small.  I may take the clothes and some of the toys up to our church resale shop.  Some of the more collectable toys, I may take to my sister who buys items and then sells them on eBay. 

Even after all the rehearsals and performances for the opera, we are still having an orchestra practice tonight! :shock  I believe that is because next Monday will be the start of Spring Break and the school where we practice will be closed;  some people may go on some trips, too.


Evelyn,
What a treat to see you posting here.  We are always glad to hear from our "Cookie Lady."

Sasha and Frankie,
Thanks for the information about Sandra Lee.  I am going to program her show onto the TiVo so I will get to watch it.  Sasha, I know you are excited about getting a new kitten soon!!
Sasha,  Love that link!  Thanks so much!

Glory. Sasha. and Frankie
I TIVo'd the Oscars and tuned in the last half hour, so I got to see Jeff Bridges and Sandra Bullock win for best actor and actress.  I was happy for both of them.  Skip and I always enjoy Sandra Bullock movies, and it was about time Jeff Bridges won an Oscar!

Frankie,
I do have some tablescape pictures of Easter like tables I will be posting soon.  I buy Jello sugar free and light puddings.  I like the chocolate/vanilla mix.  I also love Yoplait light yogurts.  I will look for the Yoplait Delites!!

Glory,
That nurse sounds like a wonderful contact for you.  I know you are looking for a few clients, and this sounds just perfect!

Frankie and Sharon,
When I had to briefly be on crutches, they were adjustable.  They could be unscrewed and made for tall or shorter people.  I remember I did not like them and you had to be sure that they did not fit just under your arms, but a little below.  I did better with a walker!

Sharon,
I love those bright colored tables, too!  Pink and Green were the colors for that flamingo table, too!

Meesa,
I'm glad you liked that wedding tablescape.  I am so excited for you.  Your wedding is so close.  Is your address still the same?  If you have a new one, please PM it to me.

Pepe,
I hope today is a good day for you.  Like Frankie said, I know you would love to start working outside in your garden and feeding the animals that are around your place. 

JoAnn,
I hope you have a pain free day today.

Betty,
I know you are getting ready for your trip.  I hope you are feeling well today, too.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Marvelous Monday!  :hugs

A tablescape with glass bunnies!  I believe this pale blue dinnerare is Wedgewood china??  Someone may know.  The pale blue plates are really set off by the navy charger plates and white tablecloth. I like the crystal and the crystal votive candle holders, too.   Beautiful centerpiece of light blue flowers.

Glory!

Very exciting about getting your patio furniture today.  Here are pictures of flower boxes that Skip and I found at Big Lots.  These are black wire baskets with that brownish liner that you can add your potting soil to and flowers. There are wooden and plastic  boxes that you can find too, I'm sure.   Wouldn't it be neat if there were dark wicker flower boxes!!  :bigsmile

Good Afternoon Everyone,


   I took myself to my weight management class and did fine.  I would not dare have Mom drive this trip.  It goes across town in morning traffic and  a "semi scary" exit over two lanes to get off the freeway going towards it.  I made sure that I didn't take a pain pill.  Don't want to be behind the wheel while in "happyland!" :lmao

  I gained a pound this week but that's ok.  Every instructor assured me that it was from the surgery on Friday.  No problem, just do better this week. 
   They were so nice over there.  One lady that weighs us bent down and removed my tennis shoe form my good foot and helped me slip out of my boot.  Then she wrote down my weight on my record sheet.  Couldn't convince her to write a "fake" loss though! :lmao

   It was aching big time when I got home.  I came home, we had lunch, then I took a pain pill and slept for an hour and 20 minutes!  Good news, after that nap, it is not hurting as much.  I guess now that it has been 72 hours since the surgery, it's beginning to feel somewhat better. 

Frankie----I would love to see you with high heels and crutches! :lmao  I couldn't even stand up in high heels!   Mine our adjustable with a button.  I did have them on 5'4" and they hurt, now I have them on 5'5" and they aren't hurting quite as bad.  By tomorrow, I might be able to race someone! :bigsmile  I'm learning how to step up and down the one step in our house without falling too. :bigsmile

  Prissy--Love the tablescapes.   I thought the pink one today reminded me of Mary B. We know how she loved pink.   I enjoyed the last one with the blue.  I do believe that it is Wedgewood.

Randy has done such a wonderful painting job for us!  He was so nice to come up and do this for us. :hugg  He has just stopped for the day and everything looks wonderful.  I keep telling him how bad and ashamed I feel for not being able to help him.   I think that maybe by the end of April, my foot will be able to take the strength to attempt the part of the house he couldn't get to.  I could at least do that.
 He has done our entry hall, Mom's master bathroom and a hallway that is approx. 30 feet long.  This also includes covering up wallpaper in two rooms and all the crown molding, baseboards, doors and cabinets!
   We chose "Nomadic Desert"  for the walls and plain white for all trims,doors, etc.  It looks wonderful.

Post by: Pepe on March 08, 2010, 02:21:19 PM
JOANN, Randy is a fast painter if that was my hubby he would still be painting in the hallway.  I was hoping you wouldn't go today and lay in bed so your foot would start getting better.  I imagine it would heal better if you didn't move around a lot.  But maybe I am wrong too!!!!!  Just getting up and letting Sammy in an out is enough for you to do right now. 

PRISSY, my favorite tablescapes so far is the one with the darling white soup tureens and the last one with the blue.  Very simple and very elegant but hey I love anything blue. 

GLORY, so glad you got your furniture.  Good for you lady!  Enjoy!

Can't wait to see pictures of the finished product!!!

FRANKIE, tell Jack thanks so much for bringing me flowers.  Loved the card, so cute and thanks so much for the thought behind the card.  You are so good to remember everyone that is sick or just plain down.  I am so glad  you love to send cards like I do, I think some people don't quite get it.  Heck I was raised with cards when I was very young, my mom insisted and I am glad she did.  It is a wonderful way in this day and age to show how much you care.

     Frankie,
                    I did read all about Lupus, it"s quite confusing is"nt it?
                 You suggested afternoon naps, something I have never done but maybe
                  it"s time to start?? I do get tired now.

                     I should love to see you in high heels on crutches, that would be fun.
                      Never could manage crutches.

                         The house is a big mess right now. With Corina leaving for Scotland
                         on Friday and me on Weds. we have clothes and suitcases all over
                         the place.    Never mind, I can clean house when I come back as I
                          will be on my own.

                                       Must call Shirl.

                 I find it rather hard to keep up with posting and can"t keep up.

                Love your flower boxes, they are beautiful. Soon it will be time to
                dig out all the frozen flower beds and bushes and replace them.

                Today I went out and bought nibbles to take to Raleigh, cookies
               crackers, etc. Guess what else I bought???   CHOCOLATE! and I
                 have already been sampling it.

                               Off to bed now.

BETTY, I think a good afternoon nap would be good for you .  How do you sleep at night?  I know you are going to have a great time on your trip, you will be able to tell Shirl first hand all about Clay.

SHARON, thanks for the hot chocolate this morning.  Coffee still doesn't taste right to me and have tried tea now I am on the chocolate. 

Another fantastic sunny day here and it is going to be 50 degrees.  How lucky can we get, I have never seen Lake Huron rolling with white caps on it like I did  yesterday.  It usually is always frozen part way  until the first of May.  We have had open water almost all winter here on the bay.  Going to go lay back down.  Had a stomach ache last night and was up numerous times .  Got up at 5:00 this morning had some toast, my pills, made a meatloaf for dinner today and now I think I will go take a nap.  :lol Heck it is only 8:30 am.

GLORY, you should be alright getting the umbrella as long as you keep it down when you are not out side, so the wind when it comes up does not catch the umbrella and dumps your table over.  I always used pots on my decks, adds tons of color.  If you have lots of sun bright red geraniums are wonderful as they bloom from spring till frost and such bright color!!!!  Wished I lived near so I could come have lunch with you at your new table.  I would have a nice frosty glass of sweet  tea!!!!  I had that outdoor carpet that was green on one of my decks and really liked it.  Just tacked it down.  I bought it at Lowe's I think by the yard.

Good Morning!

We went to bed at 8 last night! It was cold and raining, and we decided that we could watch the one 30 minute show we watch on Mondays (Big Bang Theory) in bed just as well as from the couch!  :lol After that we went to sleep - never did get out of bed to say good night here. I feel great after too much sleep!

Glory and Sharon - I never wore a bikini - I've always felt "fat" all of my life - looking back at photos, I wasn't fat at all - opportunity missed! Fortunately for everyone concerned, my bikini years are over!  :lmao :para

Prissy - I'm in the mood for closet cleaning, too - and will I EVER finish getting photos into albums. If I were rich, I would hire someone to do that for me  there are companies that do that sort of thing.

Glory - as Pepe said, an umbrella is a great thing to have - just leave it down during windy times. You can get deck protector (water proofing) that already has stain in it. Lewis used a garden sprayer to put our on, but he did have to smooth it out with a roller in some spots (don't do this on a windy day!) He bought a cheap $10 sprayer, because of course it can't be used for anything else once used to apply stain. I love the flower boxes that Prissy showed - I've wondered, too, about getting some for the deck. The warterproofing that Lewis put on the deck still causes rain to bubble up when it rains. I watched a little brown bird taking a bath in one of the bubbles of water on the deck yesterday ater the rain - it was rolling around having a great time in just a tiny bit of wtter  :lol

JoAnn - Lewis' crutches are adjustable, but they are extra long to begin with, so they won't adjust down enough for me. When he first broke his foot he borrowed a normal size pair - it killed his back to walk with them. I'm glad you are getting better at walking with the crutches. Don't worry about the weight gain - I'm sure it is just fluid from the surgery. Randy must be a great painter!  :clap That is a lot accomplished in a short time.

Pepe - I enjoy getting emails, but I still love the written word. I've trained my sister to occasionally write a note  - something she does not enjoy, but I tell her that when she does, I have something of hers to actually hold in my hand. Glad it is warming up for you.

Betty - If I don't see you again here this afternoon (it is card playing night) have a wonderful time - if you get the chance, hug Clay for us.  :hugg\

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

JOANN, how are you feeling today????  What did Randy cook for supper last night?

FRANKIE, how funny, I always thought I was fat and  ugly to as my sister was always known as the beautiful one and I was known as the sweet one!!  I look back at the family album I have and I look at pictures of myself and heck I wasn't fat it was in my mind, and my son Mark when he was here was looking thru the album and he told me you sure was a beautiful woman mom and I wasted all these years thinking I looked terrible.  The mind does some bad things to us don't they?  Well now I am steriod fat and old and ugly!!  :bigsmile :bouncy and you know I could care less!!!!

Good Afternoon(still 10 more minutes until noon) Everyone,


    I guess I tried to be "super" woman a day too early yesterday.  My leg/foot has ached the entire day!  I didn't get out of bed until 7, had breakfast and went back to bed til 11:30 watching tv in bed and laying on a heating bad on the "bad" leg. 
   I keep telling Mom it doesn't "hurt" it just aches all the way up to the knee.  I know why, I "thought" since I wasn't hurting walking in the house on the crutches, I wouldn't use the boot.  I "think" I ended up "gently" stepping on the foot too much.  My foot "screams" when I put the boot on, so I just didn;t wear it as much as I should.  The cut side is directly lined up with the side of the boot that buckles and to tell the truth.  It makes my foot feel like:*^%^&$%  :bigsmile

   I just got up and took two Alieve instead of the pain pills.  I'll take those only when I feel a need.  I did wash my hair again this morning.  That always makes me feel 100% better.  I "was" going to take a sponge bath, but maybe later.

Randy has worked so hard.  He is finishing up tall the trim work,etc. and said that he should be finished by 4 this afternoon.  He has worked so hard since Friday morning.  The end results will be Mom's master bath, the entry hall.  This is about 7' long but includes a sculpted inlaid wall mirror, the hall way that is at least 20 feet long.  The hall way includes double doors opening to our water heater, built in shelves and drawers, all the crown molding in each room and the doors to each room.
   I can't believe how lucky we are to have him do this for us.  He will not accept in payment at all.

Pepe---Mom cooked for them last night.  She cooked spaghetti.  I had a baked potato for my dinner.

Since I gained a pound and can't exercise this week, I'm really watching what I eat.  I had a program's diet soup for breakfast today :bduh and mid morning , I had a delicious orange!  I'll be careful what I have for lunch too.  I need to drink much more water this week too.

It is so sunny and wonderful today, going to the 70's!

Betty--Have a blast at Raleigh !

Good Morning!

I have been gathering things to give away and then went back to sleep for a short while.   I have a lot of "stuff" to give my ebay sister to see if she wants to sell some things on ebay.  If not, I am happy to give a lot of these things away.  I don't want the money and I want her to keep any money she makes.

Skip is "supposed" to be working on his part of the income tax so we can turn it in to our CPA this week!   :icon_rolleyes:


JoAnn,
I wonder if you should call your doctor and go in to see him sooner than Friday?   Skip's surgery was not as complicated as yours, I don't think.....no ligaments involved and he had to keep his foot elevated almost all the time for a week.  He did not drive for several weeks and you know he used the motorized carts in the stores.  I would let him out at the door and he would walk the few steps to the carts.  He was very careful and gradually eased back into normal activities.
It sounds like Randy has done a terrific job! 

Pepe,
The dishes you liked in the tablescape, the ones I thought were light blue!!  I sent a picture of the dishes to a Wedgwood China site and this is what they said about the dishes in the picture:  (They said the dishes were lavender and not light blue!  They looked light blue to me. ) :shock

Thank you for contacting Replacements, Ltd. The information you
requested is shown below.

Pattern: Cream Color on Lavender (Plain) by Wedgwood [WW CCLP]
Pattern #: 2768
Description: Plain Edge,Cream Grapes On Lavender

I'm glad you liked my Kip's Big Boy stories in the RTM.  My jaw surgery was not that painful, but I was wired shut for 6 weeks!  Now, that's a good way to lose weight, but I didn't need to lose it then.  For a while, we had a Shoney's Big Boy, but I don't know if that one is still around or not.  I remember the food was not the same as Kip's Big Boy.

Joyce,
I saw you posting on another thread.  I don't think many from the OCD are going to see Clay.  Betty from Florida who you do not know yet.

Frankie,
The Leukemia Society called me about clothes donations, so I need to get a bag ready for them to pick up Friday morning.  I am going to try to be "brutal" with my closet.  If I haven't worn it in a couple of years, then I'm probably not going to wear it and OUT IT GOES!! :lol

Glory,
We have a blue umbrella on our round concrete table between the garage and the pool.  I should have closed it up before the snow.  The snow weighted it down and it doesn't look so good now!!  I hope we can close it and reopen it and it will be fine.  I had an older umbrella that I gave to the neighbors two doors down and I can still see it in their backyard! 
I think you would like flower boxes and big pots on your deck.  I like the idea of the red geraniums.  With big pots you can put in several plants together with the red geraniums and I bet they will look striking!

Betty,
I'm glad you like our window boxes.  After I got them and Skip put them up on the railing of the new fence he built going out to the backyard, I thought, "Oh, no!  More flowers for me to try to keep alive!!"  :lol
Have a great time on your trip.  I wish I were going with you on the train.  I just love traveling on a train!!

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Tuesday!  :hugs


This looks like a table set up for a tea party!!  Pretty floral teapot with matching dishes.  Another rosy pink tablecloth to set off the dishes.  I'm not sure why this big wooden box was on the table?? :dunno  I should have asked.   (I just looked at the picture again and realized there is no silverware set out.  That box must contain the silverware!!) :lol

I think the China place identified these pieces incorrectly.  I agree that they look light blue   Also, the flowers in the vase I remember were light blue!!

Here they are again!!  After all, you can't get enough of beautiful tablescapes! :wink

I showed these dishes to Skip and said that they would really look good in our dining room with the light blue walls and curtains!  He just  :icon_rolleyes:

Hello All!

  My foot has finally decided to stop hurting, at least for the last 3 hours since I posted.  I've just be lazy around the house.  I did get up and dusted my furniture with a little furniture polish just now.  I had Mom's home nurse look at it and he said that it looked good but didn't remove the bandage though.  I have three purple toes sticking out!  He said that was normal and that the way I could tell everything was fine was to "snap" the toe nail and if it stayed white, normal!  I'm normal! :lmao

Yes the economy has affected business Jan, for a couple years now really.  I really just try to keep my bills paid so I don't have debt.  I can't have debt when it's just me now, luckily Al and I had the house paid off awhile ago or I'd be in trouble without his income.

A beautiful day here! The boys and I ran errands - gas in the car, mail sent off, etc., then I went outside and worked on another sign.

JoAnn - Maybe you did try to do too much yesterday - glad your foot is feeling better this afternoon.

Philly - thanks for the information - I had never heard of Merecal before - wonder if the CD is up on Amazon, too?  EDIT - I just checked Amazon - not there yet!

Prissy - there are still a few Shoneys here, but they are not as good as they were when we were kids! I love the newest table - love the "ruffled" edges on the china. I agree that the other china is blue!

Jan/Jeanne - you are so lucky to be able to attend so many concerts - I love hearing about them. I still have my wedding dress - not a formal wedding dress (we married in my borher's living room), but I love my dress. My Mother made it - it is light blue organza. I have some of my childrens's clothes, too - the little outfits that they wore home from the hospitals when they were born.

Jan and Sharon - I just got this month's Family Circle Magazine in the mail - it has a stack of chocolate dounts on the cover!!! I assume the recipe is inside  :purpbana

Cards have been cancelled for tonight - two of the women (sisters) are getting ready for a big garage sale this weekend. I'm glad - I want to watch The Biggest Loser!  :lol

Have a fun afternoon, everyone!

After we got back home, we saw that she had also picked bouquets of red Camelias and had put them on Peanut and Scooters graves.  :cry I knew you would love that - grandchildren can do the sweetest things - they are our payment for putting up with children sometimes!  :lmao

Also - who else is going to Raleigh to see Clay besides Betty - wonder if everyone who already lives there is going?  :wave  Joyce - I hope you get to see lots of Claymaniacs there!

                   give Clay a big hug for you. Just had an email from Claudia  she is going too.             
                    it will be nice to see her again.
                     
                      Can"t quite decide what to pack! I think warm clothes and I have a raincoat
                     with a zip out lining. Might be good as they are forecasting lots of rain.

                                    I also have my children"s baby clothes, can"t bear to part with them.
                                                  I"ll try to get back later.

Good Afternoon!  (5 pm as I start to type!)

We decided to get out of the house!  It is a gorgeous day.  Sunny and 75 degrees!  :wheee  We went by the bank and then had a late lunch/early dinner at the Macaroni Grill!  I had a coupon and a partial gift card to use!  :thumb   Honey balsamic chicken, pasta and broccoli.  Both Skip and I brought home leftovers.

Frankie,
That brought a tear to my eye when I read about Kaitlyn leaving flowers for Scooter and Peanut!  What a sweet child!  :hugs
I think I found the donuts featured on the Family Circle Magazine!!  (See below.) :wink
I love those ruffle like dishes, too!  And I agree, those were blue plates!

Sharon,
I hope your business will pick up.  It sounds like you are budget conscious which is good!    We all kind of adjust to what our finances are.  When we bought this house and sold my house, our house payment was six times as much!  :shock   Then when I retired my retirement pay was ( and is) about 2/3 of what I had been bringing home.   But then the house was paid for, so it all kind of evened out! 

Pepe,
I did drink a lot of malts and shakes when my mouth was wired shut for 6 weeks.  Also, protein drinks and soups and broths.  I remember my oral surgeon called me one evening to see how I was doing and he said my mouth must be unwired because I was able to talk too plainly!! :lol  I just love all of these dishes.  I was in "dish heaven" at the tablescapes display.


Jan/Jeanne,
Last Tuesday the Woman's Club of Fort Worth that I belong to had a showing of tablescapes by the Interior Decorating CLub.    21 tables all set up in one big room with beautiful centerpieces and china;  many did look like works of art.  I have been posting a "table at a time" with my posts!!   (I'm using the thumbnail picture so you can click onto it for a really LARGE PICTURE!)
How wonderful that your son enjoys the opera and symphony concerts, too! 

Jan,  Here are enough donuts for you to share with all of us chocoholics with "some"  left for you!! :wink   :choc

Kim on the RTM thread brought up the BIG BOY restaurants.  When she was 7, she used to climb on the Big Boy statue at the restaurant near her house. 

There were Big Boys around the country with different names.  Shoney's Big Boy, but they became their own restaurant and dropped the Big Boy.  Also Bob's Big Boys, and quite a few others.   I went to Wypedeia to read more about the Big Boy history.  I actually have two Big Boy banks that I bought before the Big Boy in Fort Worth closed.

That reminded me of my experiences in Fort Worth with Kip's Big Boy.  Here is my post from the RTM:


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v231/Spikee48047/fun%20stuff/big-boy.jpg)

Peggy,
Thanks for the picture!! :hugs


I have to jump in to this Big Boy discussion!!  We had a Kip's Big Boy in Fort Worth.  When my sisters and I were children and would go spend the night at my aunt and uncle's house, we would almost always go to Kip's Big Boy restaurant for dinner.  The Big Boy hamburger platter with a salad and fries, and that famous Big Boy Thousand Island dressing that they put on the burger as well as the salad!!  Of course, a hot fudge sundae for dessert!  And the hot fudge was in a little container that you would pour on your ice cream. :yum

When I was a student at TCU (Texas Christian University), often several of us would go to lunch at Kip's Big Boy.  It was just a few blocks from the university.  When I became engaged to my first husband, whom I met at TCU, yep, we went to Kip's Big Boy.  Even (second husband) Skip and I had a few meals there, too.

More than 20 years ago (between husband 1 and husband 2),  I had jaw surgery and my mouth was wired shut.  Yes, I still went to Kip's Big Boy with a friend.  I don't remember what I ordered but I'm pretty sure it wasn't the burger platter and hot fudge sundae!! :lol

Sadly, it has been gone for several years now!  A Denny's took over that restaurant.   I will always have fond memories of Kip's Big Boy and that famous thousand island dressing!  (Hot fudge sundaes, too!) :wink

Kim,
It never occurred to me or my sisters to try to climb up the Big Boy!!  We were just not as adventuresome as you!!  :lmao

Just finished watching The Biggest Loser.

Pepe - we bought a corn beef roast at SAMs on Sunday (they have great ones!), and of course I cooked it in the crock pot. I cooked the potatoes and carrots in the crock pot, too, but cooked the cabbage separately (I've cooked the cabbage in the past in the crock pot with everything else, but it is better cooked separately). I don't know why Kaitlyn didn't mention the flowers. I was outside with her (I ws painting a sign) and she and the boys were playing in the yard where I could see and hear them - I just did not notice her picking the flowers. Guess she didn't think it was necessary to mention them. She loved the girls, and still talks about them often.

Prissy - I remember the "Big Boy" well! I'm going to go read that donut recipe now.

Betty - have a great concert! I just got an email about Clay reconfiguring the theatre today so that more tickets could be sold - I just got the email, and the tickets went on sale at noon!  :bduh Have a fun, safe trip - we will be waiting to hear from you.  :hugg

Hello, Evelyn - good to see you!


Good Night, OCD - see you tomorrow.

Good Morning!

I did remember my once a week pill that I take on Wednesday.  Last week was the JOY games/luncheon and I totally forgot about the pill and took it on Thursday morning.

No special plans today except to keep working on my closet and gathering things to give away or take to my "ebay" sister.  Soul Food Supper this evening.

It looks like another warm, gorgeous day, but I just saw that rain is a possibility later today.  Our ground really needs a few days to dry out;  getting very soggy in places.

Frankie,
I should have copied that recipe when I found the donuts picture from the Family Circle magazine.  :doh

Sharon,
Now, I did notice that not all of the donuts in the picture were chocolate, but they sure all look good.  Thanks for letting us know about Kim's granny.  I just posted in the RTM.

Evelyn,
Good to see you here on the OCD!!  Big Boy restaurants were all over the country at one time.  I have not seen one even traveling in years.

Pepe,
I hope you have another beautiful day in East Tawas!  Maybe Spring will come early.  I am enjoying seeing the daffodils and jonquils growing;  just waiting for the blooms!

Glory,
I do think the wind can cause us to have health problems.  I try to cover my head, ears, and even part of my face when it is windy.

Skip just returned from the cleaners and said we have a severe weather forecast, so I guess the storms are on their way!  :eek


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Wonderful Wednesday!  :hugs

I am nearing the end of my tablescape pictures.  Only a few more to go! :sad

This one was kind of "busy"  (lots of crystal items) and what was unusual was that a large mirror in four quarter sections was set on top of this tablecloth.  I thought it had an "oriental" feel to it, also.

Good Morning! Clay's new CD is #7 on Amazon this morning - I was gong to post that in the ANN, but it hasn't been started yet today. I ordered 3 - one for me, my usual backup, and one for my sister (who never, ever buys music for herself - she waits for me to buy it for her!  :lol )

Prissy, Sharon, and others.....I did read the donut recipe last night - a basic cake recipe with several variations and toppings. It is a low fat recipe - dounts are baked instead of fried. I actually have an electric donut baker - got it several years ago for Christmas. From what Prissy said, the recipes are available on line - if you cannot find them, I will be glad to copy the page and mail it out to anyone interested.

Glory - feel better  :hugg

Sharon - thank you for breakfast and for telling us about Kim's granmother.

Prissy - Another beautiful table.  :clap

Betty - I'm thnking about you this morning - wondering what time your train leaves!

Carol - enjoyed this morning's email photos of the deer - are you lurking here?

Jayne - have you talked to Boca lately? I'm wondering how Niki is doing - her baby is due next month.

Meesa - I'm shocked that you have time to post this week - I know you must be very busy!

Happy Wednesday, everyone - pretty weather here right now, but we do have storm predicted.

   Frankie,
                    We now have front row Messanine seats in the center.. Not worrying about any more
                    changes. We are donating our first tickets. I hope the scalpers were truly stuck with
                    their greed.

                       Our train leaves at 7.50 tonight, arrives 9 something in the morning.There are two
                      ladies coming from Sarasota and Tampa and they are getting a seat for me.

                          I"ll order my CDs when I come back or maybe today. Can"t wait till June.

                                                           Have a good day everyone.

Betty,
Have a wonderful trip! I would have posted to you, but I thought you had already left on your trip.   I would love to be on that train with you.  I did read that you are taking some snacks including :choc   :bigsmile

Frankie,
I will see if I can find the donut recipe again online and post it in the Recipe Swap Thread.

Sharon,
I got a laugh out of the mirror to help you see if you dribble. :lol   I am getting really bad about having whatever I eat show up on the front of my top or shirt!!  When I wash my clothes, I just automatically spray SHOUT or SPRAY N WASH on the front of any of my tops!!   :lmao

FRANKIE, I thought I remembered  you saying that you didn't cook the cabbage in the crock pot.  I will cook mine separate also and when it is cooked than will put it in the crock pot at the last so it gets some flavors from the juices of the meat.  I saw on the weather  you were supposed to get some storms.  Be safe and stay close to the house.  :bigsmile

PRISSY, DUDLEY and JOANN, saw that you all were going to get some bad weather also today.  Hope it doesn't get to bad just watch the sky for any threatening weather and pray everyone will be safe. 

PRISSY, so happy when Soul Food Supper rolls around.  you always have something very good to eat and usually gives me hints on upcoming menus I can fix.  Love the story you told of the Big Boy.  I really thought that Big Boy was only in Michigan now.  My kids all worked at one when they were in high school.  Many memories for sure, they have the biggest and best desserts also. 

BETTY, have a wonderful time and glad you got better seats.

MEESA,  :hugg  good luck getting everything done sweetie!!! 

LOLITA, I know you are busy but I sure do miss you.

GLORY so sorry about your ear ache!!!  Does a heating pad help?

Just coming in from outside - still warm here, but the wind is picking up. Storms are predicted for this afternoon, but maybe they won't be too bad.

Betty - You got better tickets!!! That rates Liz's Claymaniacs dance  :purpbana :bouncy :purpbana :bouncy :purpbana :bouncy :purpbana :bouncy Glad, too that you are getting to donate tickets. That makes the concert extra special - especially if you donate to someone who truly needs the help.

Pepe - Hope your corned beef turns out well - I know it will. The boys and I are about to go make a bank deposit. Our new animal shelter is having a membership drive, and the applications are coming back to us - I make a deposit a couple of times a week. (Don't want a lot of money laying around here, even if most of it is in checks). After that, we will come home and stay inside once the weather gets bad! I have no idea what I will cook for supper!

Glory - glad you are feeling better.

Carol - good to see you posting!  :clap

Good  Afternoon Everyone!

  My cousin Randy left early this morning and Mom, Sammy and I have all been taking a long afternoon nap this afternoon!

   GREAT NEWS
     RANDY, MOM'S HOME NURSE AND I FINALLY, FINALLY HAVE TALKED MOM TO CUT HER TIES WITH HER PRIMARY DOCTOR!!!!!!! HOME NURSE, JOE, HAS GIVEN MOM A NEW DOCTOR AND WE ARE GOING TO SEE HER ON APRIL 8!!!!!!!!
   Mom's feet are so swollen with fluid, she cries as she walks in the house.  The "lovely" Dr. Doom told her two weeks ago, that she was fine and didn't need any fluid pills.  Yesterday, when the home nurse saw her legs, he became bilistic!  He called her cardiologist and had them send out a prescription.
   THIS MORNING,  I DROVE TO SAMS AND GOT IT FOR HER.  RANDY HAD TO LEAVE EARLY TO GET HOME BEFORE DARK, SO I WENT MYSELF.  On the way, I had the pleasure of being caught in a hail storm but it stopped before I go to Sam's.

   I'm tired, my foot has been elevated since but THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, MOM HAS STARTED THE FLUID PILLS!!!!  Now, tomorrow, she gets her new hearing aids and MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, WE CAN HELP HER  START HEALING ONCE MORE.  I FEEL SO RELIEVED THAT SHE NO LONGER WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THE DR.DOOM!

  I have recovered from my nap.  The sun is shining and life is great.

I get my foot looked at on Friday and rewrapped and as soon as he gives me the green light, I'll start cleaning up the house and then take a photo to post of the vanity.  It is gorgeous!

 :clap :clap That Jennie will not longer have to put up with Dr. Doom! Hope she loves her new doctor. Sounds like she already has a great home nurse. Looking forward to seeing your photos, JoAnn, but rest and take care of your foot first.

Betty - I had to check in here one more time before it is time for you to leave. Again, I hope you have the best Clay concert of your life.

Thought I had better check in here because I may be turning the computer off for the evening soon. Looks like really bad storms in Texas - several torndoes spotted, and golf ball size hail in some areas. Right now, looks like the worst storms will be north of us when they reach Louisiana. But if I don't get back on tonight, you will all know it is wether related. Unless there is another last minute cancellation (again) I am scheduled to go to real estate school tomorrow, too, so I may not be back until Friday!

JOANN, I couldn't be happier that Jennie has a new doctor.  Hope the fluid pills help her, so glad she had a home nurse that takes charge.  They had asked me about having a home nurse but they said  you could only have one if you are unable to leave the house.  I take a water pill the highest mg. but I still have my left foot that swells and my ankle.   :lol  I am anxious to hear how Jennie likes her new doctor and how the fluid pills work on her. Relax and lay around and let that foot heal real good so  you don't damage it. 

FRANKIE, hope all is well there with your weather.  What ever happened at the bank?  Remember they  didn't register your deposit or something like that? 

CAROL, good to see you ? Miss your posts.

DUDLEY, hope all is well at  your house.  Bad breathing week have not talked on the phone to anyone as I am saving my oxygen to breath and move around.  Seems this rib I hurt is not wanting me to breath to well.  Thinking of you though.

Good Evening!

We just returned from Soul Food Supper and was it good!!  Roast beef that fell apart, onions and carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy, salad bar, rolls, and dump cake with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert.  This was not like the dump cake I made;  no cherry pie filling but apples in it!

Tomorrow is the Whitlock Club.  The quartet is not scheduled to play, so I get to just sit and enjoy the other performances, then have lunch in the tea room.  Pond Club meeting tomorrow evening and two other ladies are bringing the refreshments.  I will just be "secretary" and read the minutes!

Pepe,
I wish you could find a doctor who could help you to control this pain and strengthen your bones.  I think you would have really enjoyed this meal tonight.  I have been online looking for Big Boy restaurants in Texas.  I think the only one might be in El Paso!  That's quite a ways from here.

JoAnn,
Good news that Jennie has replaced Dr. Doom with another doctor!   :clap

Frankie,
There was not much to our storms this morning.  They just quickly came through and that was it!

Betty,
Thinking of you as you are starting your train ride soon.  Have a marvelous week!

Carol,
Good to see you posting!

Lolita,
Thinking of you, too!

Sharon,
Have fun at Niagara Falls with your mom and sister.  You know that is a trip I want to make someday!!

A quick post - totrms wern't too bad last night, but we left the computer off just in case. I am out the door in a few minutes - have to drive for an hour to get to continuing education.

Pepe - the bank found our deposit locked in the vault - it had never been processed. Since I had the receipt, they honored the deposit while they searched for it.

dudley - glad you are out and about in your yard. Our day lillies are up, too - I've been meaning to get out and take some photos of the garden for Pepe. We are having fresh broccoli and carrots almost every day.

Sharon - have fun on your trip - hope you win lots of money!

Prissy - have fun today - I am thinking about Betty, too - bet they are almost to Raleigh by now.

Happy Thursday, everyone - see you this evening.

 PRISSY,  YUMMMMMMMMM!!!  My goodness the Soul Food Supper sounds wonderful.   I can almost taste it!!!!!  Do you have a big turnout every week.  With the menu's you have I sure wouldn't know why you wouldn't.  I have to get my cookbook out that you had sent me, I know that there was a few dishes I wanted to fix.  Glad your weather didn't get dangerous.  More eating out for you today to look forward too.  You are so lucky Prissy!!!

DUDLEY, always a pleasure and a treat when you post.  I didn't know you had ordered all those plants from QVC.  I would have liked to have ordered the Butterfly Bushes they had but they said they wouldn't do good below 40 Degrees.  I had one in Tennessee I had planted and it had pink, white and purple flowers all on one bush.  It bloomed constantly and I loved it along with the hummingbirds and the butterflies.  You just have to remember to cut it way  back in the late fall.   I am so happy you can get out in your  yard and still plant flowers. 

FRANKIE, Glad the bank found their mistake, that is scary though.  Have a safe trip to your class.  Trying to figure out what I want for dinner today.  Either smoked sausage on buns with warm sauerkraut and buttered potatoes, or fix the corn beef, or play like it is summer and make a macaroni salad with tuna/celery/peppers/onions/shredded cheese and leaf lettuce.

Good Morning Everyone!


  It's a bright, wonderful day today going up to the mid 60's!  Only planned thing on the agenda today is go to the post office and go get  Mom's new hearing aides!

  I go to the podiatrist tomorrow.  Can't wait!  The dressing does need changing!  The boot has worn the  soft part of the dressing off the heel and it looks kind of ragged!  I want to see what the incision looks like.  I am starting to see the bruising where the white lining has worn off.

   I'm not surprised that it hasn't given me much trouble.  I'm so fortunate to heal very fast on everything that has gone wrong over the years.  The biggest trouble so far, is the aching of using the boot and crutches. 
  I will admit, the "extra" walking on it going to Sam's yesterday, did cause me to get a pain pill late yesterday afternoon. I don't have time to stop doing what I have to do. Mom is unable to do the house work, so I just do as much as possible.  I'll know more tomorrow what and when I can do more. 
   Betty----Hope that your trip is a great one.  Hope they do an audience scan so we can see you during the special when airs.

Pepe---The fluid pill worked great yesterday for Mom. They are still swollen but not as much.  I'm sure that they will be better the more she takes the pill.  Only one a day is allowed.

Frankie--How was your Wednesday weigh in?  Hope everything is in your favor!

Pepe--your dinner plans sound terrific!  It would be a hard choice to choose from.  I did see a recipe for corn beef yesterday and it wasn't that many calories.  I love corn  beef and just  might have to get some next trip to the store. :bigsmile  Love boiled cabbage too! :bigsmile

Good Morning!

I will get ready and be off soon for the Whitlock Club meeting and lunch in the Tea Room as usual.  I plan to stop by my "ebay" sister on the way home and leave her dolls, etc., to put on ebay.  We will see if anyone is interested in these items!

Yesterday, I made two doctor appointments:  one with the oral surgeon to see about removing the tooth in my upper jaw that has shifted because of removal of its "partner" tooth in my lower jaw    and     the other appointment with an eye surgeon who specializes in cataracts.  I will see what he says about the cataract in my left eye that is causing me to almost have double vision in that eye. 

Sharon,
Have fun on your trip.  Love looking at those donuts!

Pepe,
That was the best roast beef I've had in a long time.  Very tender!   I actually brought home my salad and had it later in the evening.  I will "report" on the Tea Room luncheon and Pond Club refreshments today, too.

Dudley,
Amazing you already have flowers blooming.  We are getting close.  Our rose bushes took a beating from the snow, so I hope they will all come back.

Frankie,
I would love to be on that train with Betty.  Sounds like a fun trip.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Thursday!  :hugs

Another pink and green tablescape!    I remember that the small bowls to the left of the plates had jelly beans and votive candles in them.  Pink gerber daisies and it looks like placed in the goblets, white napkins with pink and green floral napkins that match the dinnerware.  Again, this one was a little unusual, I thought, but interesting.

   It's already 12:45 and we haven't left the house yet.  I just can't wait to have my foot rewrapped tomorrow or what ever he decides to do.  It doesn't hurt at all until I put on the boot,then it throbs up the entire leg.  The wrap binding has completely fallen off the heel and that is part of the problem.  I put a piece of  "fake" sheep skin padding in the boot to see if that helps.  As soon as we get home, the boot is coming off!  At least it isn't swelling at all. The boot buckles, all 3, also strap together on the left side at that is the other reason the boot hurts.  The surgery was on the left side.

   Prissy--Really have enjoyed the tablescapes.  I'm going to start looking for new "spring" table runners and perhaps colorful chargers as soon as I'm allowed to walk fully on the boot.  I learned my lesson yesterday going to WalMart walking just for that short time with the boot, made my leg ache.

 Mom is almost dressed.  She is excited about going to get her new ear pieces!

Pepe--She took  her 2nd pill today for fluid and it helped once again.  Maybe they won't swell so much tonight even though they did last night.  She is able to walk around the house much more today then the last few days.

JOANN, tell Jennie when she is sitting down or to lay on the couch to prop her feet up high on pillows to get the swelling to go down while she is sitting, that is what I have to do.  Isn't it funny or not funny but darn odd that all the different doctors Jennie goes to and she still has all these problems.  I don't even know what to think anymore.  Hubby doesn't know what to do with me either or where to go like he said  I am not getting any better.  Not being able to walk at all with out the walker to hang on to is almost worse than the lung problem.  No one knows what is going on with the joints and hip. So if you don't know how do you fix it.  Doctors seem to  play guessing games to much.

We were let out of class early for good behavior  :bigsmile I shopped on my lunch hour and found a pair of jeans that fit well. They were on sale and I had an additional 25% off coupon, too.  :clap

Prissy - I love the new tablescapes - especially the first one from this morning. My new dishes (bought them ater the remodel) are like the pink dishes, but they are yellow. I bought yellow and  terra cotta ribbon (a small plaid) for the necks of my bunnies - I hope to find some other new Easter things to finish the table. I have Easter wreaths on the doors, and I have gotten the grandchildrens' Easter Bunny photos out. That is as far as I have gotten with Easter decorations.

JoAnn - I'm happy to hear that Jennie is doing better. I know you will be glad to see your podiatrist tomorrow. I lost .8 this week - I had lost1.6 earlier in the week, but my weight goes up and down all week - as you know, I only record the "official" weight every Wednesday.

Glory - I watched part of AI last night - enouth the hear that they will have the Top 12 after this week. I may start watching next week. I haven't watched enough this year to even know anyone's name.

Pepe - I am on strike tonight - lots of leftovers in the refrigerator - cheese and broccoli soup, corned beef, and sausage and chicken Jambalaya. I will have a salad and something else - probably a WW dinner.

Jeanne - emailing photos is no problem at all - would take only a few minutes to post them for you.

 :hugg Meesa - can't believe you are taking the time to post this week! You must be really busy.

I hope Clay has a great taping, too - hope the concert is really a sell out. Wonder what the scalpers will with the tickets if they do not sell. I know the concert counts scalpers' tickets as a sell out, but I hope there won't be any empty seats.

Lewis is working late, so I'd better go spend some time with the boys - see you later.

Good Night, everyone - it will be quiet here for the next fews days with so many people in Raleigh. Hope everyone traveling will have good trips, safe travels, fun times seeing old and new friends, and a wonderful concert.

Good Evening!

Just a quick post.  I have been gone most of the day:  Whitlock Club, lunch in the Tea Room, a visit with my "ebay" sister and other errands.  Also, Skip was on both computers so I did not get a chance to post before we left for the Pond Club meeting.

Pepe,
The main menu in the Tea Room had avocados in the entree and I am allergic to avocados, so I had the salad bar which had quite a variety:  mixed greens, tomatoes, broccoli, boiled eggs, turkey and ham cubes, shredded cheese, shredded carrots,  croutons,  beets, tuna salad, chicken salad, green bean salad, rice salad, melon, and several kinds of dressing;  homemade rolls, too, and iced tea!  I was full!
Pond Club refreshments were meatballs, chips and dip, Shamrock cookies, and pretzels!  An odd combination, but good!  I brought only my St. Paddy tablecloths and decorations for the table (including my green beads!) :wink

Pepe,
You asked about the turn out each week for Soul Food supper at church.  Usually, it is really a big turn out, but on the evenings when the fare is "lighter," sandwiches and soup  or  "breakfast" for supper, the turnout is not as big.  I don't care what they serve;  it is always good and I am happy not to have to fix dinner that evening! :wink
One group of ladies that come every week for supper are from a local retirement home and don't even belong to the church.  That's OK!  We:re glad to have them.

I hope you all had a great day and have a restful night!  :tobed



Another Easter Tablescape!

The unusual thing about this table is the circular piece of glass (held up with purple glasses) that gives this Easter table setting a two dimensional effect.  Charger plates that look like round mirrors, pink crystal, and a variety of dinnerware with lots of bunnies makes this an unusual and interesting tablescape!!

Dog lovers will love this local story about a pug named Boca and a plastic surgeon!!  :dog

BOCA THE PUG (http://www.star-telegram.com/2010/03/06/2020176/fort-worth-team-joined-forces.html)

I'M PRINTING OUT THE STORY IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE ACCESSING THE LINK ABOVE THE PICTURES!

LOCAL NEWS

Fort Worth team joined forces to put Boca the pug back together again
Posted Saturday, Mar. 06,


FORT WORTH -- Debra Drzich knew it was a shot in the dark.

The worst that could happen, she figured, is Dr. Yadro Ducic would turn her down.

"He is probably going to think I'm nuts, but most everybody thinks I'm nuts anyway, so that is OK," Drzich reasoned.

Drzich, a certified surgical technologist on the heart team at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, approached the plastic surgeon in the hospital hallway and asked to speak with him privately.

Would he be willing to reconstruct the shattered jaw of an abused dog, a pug named Boca, and would he consider doing the surgery for free?

The doctor didn't laugh, a good sign.

"He said he had never worked on a dog but that he would be willing to give it a try," Drzich recalled. "He was up for the challenge."

That impromptu hallway conversation sparked a series of events that, two months later, brought a group of strangers together for an unprecedented surgery and a remarkable act of kindness.

"I don't think it matters whether it is a dog or a human or a cat," Ducic said. "You are going to feel empathetic because her jaw was so devastatingly broken in so many pieces. She couldn't close her mouth and she was drooling and she couldn't eat properly, couldn't bark, couldn't do much of anything. ... It's one of those things -- you don't do it for any reason other than you feel like you are supposed to."

Overcoming adversity

It was August, and the little pug was in bad shape.

A good Samaritan had found her and called the hot line for Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue, a nonprofit organization that takes in abused, neglected and abandoned pugs. A volunteer went to get the pug and, upon seeing her, named her Boca, which means mouth in Spanish.

The volunteer drove Boca to the Westcreek Animal Clinic, where veterinarian Larry Gumfory treats the organization's rescued animals for about half the normal fee.

"She was with us for probably two months," Gumfory said. "She came in with her jaw hanging down, and she had been that way for a long time. There is no way of knowing for sure, but she probably got kicked in the mouth."

Despite her hardship, the staff at the clinic was struck by Boca's sweetness -- and her ability to overcome adversity.

Because she could not chew, she swallowed food whole, literally sucking it down.

"She was a champ at it," Gumfory said, chuckling. "There isn't a staff member here that doesn't just love her to death because she is such a sweet dog."

On two occasions, Gumfory operated on Boca's jaw, putting in pins in an attempt to close it. Both times, Boca broke the pins loose.

"It was pretty disheartening," Gumfory said. "I have done several broken mandibles in the past, and they have always healed. Probably part of the problem was that it was fractured on both sides of the mandible and not just one. It was real frustrating."

Eventually, Boca went to live with a foster mom, a volunteer with the pug rescue organization who would care for her until she could be adopted.

And then, in December, Drzich, also a volunteer with pug rescue, came into Boca's life.
"Her original foster mom was going out of town, so she asked me to watch her because she was going to be gone for two weeks," Drzich said.

Finding help

Shortly after Boca arrived at her home, Drzich was smitten.

"I had three dogs at the time, and everybody eats kibble out of a bowl," Drzich said. "She went over to the kibble bowl and just buried her face. It was a mess. There was kibble all over the floor."

Later that month, Drzich attended a Christmas party for the pug rescue organization. She said they were sitting around talking about how to help Boca when she thought of Ducic, whom she had assisted on two surgeries.

"No one was coming up with any solutions, and his name just kind of flashed across my brain. I thought to myself, 'I will talk to him. I will ask him,'" Drzich said. "It was one of those things. 'I wonder if he will take a chance? I wonder if he will do it?'"

Drzich said she came to admire Ducic several years ago when she saw him speak at a conference.

"He reconstructs people's faces, either after some kind of surgery or some kind of cancer of the face or neck, and he also reconstructs faces and necks of women who have been battered," she said. "To see his before-and-after pictures and to see the kind of work he does thoroughly impressed me."

Two weeks before Christmas, she saw Ducic in the hallway at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

"She came up to me and said something to the effect of, 'You do a lot of reconstructive surgeries, and we have this really sweet little pug, and she was abused and she has all sorts of issues with her jaw. Do you think you might be able to look at her and fix it?'" Ducic recalled. "My first thoughts were, 'Gosh, I mean, operating on a dog? I wouldn't know the first thing about it, but I will try and help if I can.'"

Ducic gave Drzich all his contact information, and shortly afterward, Gumfory contacted him and sent over Boca's X-rays.

"Somebody took that cute little dog and kicked it in the head and broke its jaw," said Ducic, who doesn't have a dog. "The amount of pain that poor little thing has gone through is just incredible."

About a month later, Drzich asked Ducic about the screws and plates he would need to for Boca's surgery, which was going to take place at Westcreek Animal Clinic.

"He said he had already taken care of all that -- he had gotten it donated," Drzich said.

Ducic had contacted Kevin Jackson at Stryker, a medical equipment company.

"Donating time is one thing, but physically, you need instruments and plates and screws, and those things are crazy expensive," Ducic said. "We work a lot with a couple of plating companies, and the first one I called said, 'Of course, they would be happy to donate some instrumentation for this little dog.'"

'I was a little bit nervous'

Boca's surgery was scheduled for Feb. 13.

That morning, all the players arrived at Westcreek Medical Clinic, many meeting for the first time.

Ducic brought along a fellow doctor, Jared Inman; and two residents in training. Kevin Jackson with Stryker was also there also, along with Gumfory and his head technician, Dori Davis, who would be administering Boca's anesthesia. Drzich, meanwhile, was prepared to assist in the operating room while her husband, John, captured it all on camera.
"I have to be honest. I don't get nervous for surgery, really ever, but I was a little bit nervous about this because I didn't know what to expect," Ducic said. "I didn't know what a pug's jawbone was going to feel like or how the screws were going to fit in there or what size screws we were going to need, things like that."

As it turned out, there was no need to worry. The 90-minute surgery went perfectly.

Ducic carefully and methodically reconstructed Boca's jaw -- a surgery that would have cost a human between $25,000 and $40,000.

"Somebody was looking out for this poor little thing and just kind of helped us along," Ducic said modestly. "We ended up doing the right thing. I think we all had a smile on our face. It felt good."

After the surgery Drzich took Boca home and nursed her back to health.

About a week ago, Gumfory took out her stitches, and, a few days later, Boca dropped by Ducic's Fort Worth office.

The doctor hadn't seen her since the surgery and was all smiles as he watched the little dog, fat and happy, waddle around his waiting room.

Boca can drink and eat normally now, Drzich told him.

And she barks again.

Drzich gave Ducic a hug.

"Thank you," she said, "for stepping outside the box."

PRISSY, sounds like your day yesterday was really busy.  The buffet sounds wonderful at the Tea Room.  I love a variety of foods to eat, I am afraid I can get bored eating the same thing.  I'm with you I don't care what the Soul Food Supper was I would be there.  I love everything if someone else fixes it.   :bigsmile 

GLORY, oh yes taxes on gifts.  To bad you didn't know about that, sure hope you have enough money to pay the tax.  I think at one time I heard it was like 45% tax on the gift amount.  HOw horrible is that !!!!!!!!!!!!!  I know why you bought  your outdoor furniture so early so they wouldn't sell out of it.

Good Morning!

Meals on Wheels and our usual errands today.  Speaking of taxes, hopefully :cross Skip will have his part done today so we can turn the paperwork in to our tax lady!!   I don't like having an extension and having to pay a penalty!  :eek

Pepe,
If someone else will fix the meal, I will bet there to eat it!!   I'm not that particular!

Glory,
Very sweet story about Boca, the dog, and the kindness of strangers.  It thought about Tammy and her pugs, Zoe and Ping, when I saw the dog's picture.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Fabulous Friday!  :hugs


THIS IS THE LAST TABLESCAPE

I have posted pictures of about 19 tables.  I know some of you have enjoyed them!

 This last table was the only rectangular table set up.  Pink crinkly tablecloth with navy runner and sashes on the chairs.  I believe that those are navy napkins tucked under the white square plates and hanging down over the edge of the table;;  looks like more runners.  Crystal candle holders and vases with light pink candles and rosy pink tulips all along the table runner with white birds and white beads!!  :bigsmile

Good Morning!

Prissy - I love the Pug story - I hope Tammy is lurking and gets to read it. I think of her and her Pugs often. Love the newest Easter table, too. I never thought of putting all of my ceramic Easter bunnies on our table - I usually only put the three large ones there. I want to make an extra effort this year to make a fun table for the grandchildren. If I find out that all of the kids will be here - hope they will because my Sister is visiting - I will buy each person a chocolate bunny and will write their names on them in frosting for a place card.

Glory - thank goodness your tax problem is solved. You can gift each of your children $10,000 per year (that may have even gone up) without them having to pay taxes on it or without causing problems for yourself.

Pepe - I'm trying to think of something new to cook today!

I did not realize that Clay's concert was tonight until just now - thought it was tomorrow. I know everyone there is having a great time.

Jack and Tuffy need to be groomed. I just called, and their groomer has broken her ankle and will not be working for a while. I am trying to decide whether to just wait or to subject them to the trauma of trying a new groomer.

Happy TGIF, everyone!

Lunch time check in!

Glory - I thought I had remembered our tax guy telling us that amount had gone up (he is so good about telling us about all of the tax changes every year). We had a surprise rain storm during the night last night - it is sunny now, but cold. I'm not sorry at all that I did not go to see Clay - I wish him well, and will buy his music, but I don't know if I will ever go to another concert - we'll see.

Meesa - you are probably too busy to check in here, but I am thinking about you. Hope your wedding is wonderful, and I'm wishing for every happiness for you!  :hugg

GLORY, I am so happy you don't owe any tax.  I hate it when someone has paid tax on that money and they pass it on to someone else when they pass away and than that person is expected to pay  tax again on it.  The governement gets to much money  as they seem to just throw it away.  Men never did learn how to budget!!!!!!!!!!  :icon_rolleyes:

FRANKIE,  :hugg How nice you will have your sister for Easter, always makes holidays special when you have overnight company.  I remember when I used to have a houseful and loved every minute and now it is no one.  Although my son did stop by and had lunch with us.  Just taken a pain pill as it is not a good day for the spine today and my legs seem to keep wanting to go to sleep on me.  I was going to fix soup but fixed a tuna salad on toast with sliced tomato and chips and some A&W root beer and Donnie had a slice of Banana Cream pie with his dad.  He did not bring Preston as he was with his other grandma.  Missed seeing Preston but nice to get some alone time with my son sometimes.  Was thinking of making this bean soup, easy recipe and oh so good.

PRISSY, made that dump cake.  My recipe calls for the crushed pineapple, a can of cherry pie filling on top of the pineapple, than the yellow cake mix , mixed with 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup of oil, spread over the cherry pie filling than nuts sprinkled on that and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.  So a little different than the recipe you have.   Like the navy and pink together on the last tablescape but the table is a little to busy for me.

Good Afternoon!

Macaroni Grill leftovers are in the oven for a late lunch!  Skip is still working on the taxes!! I am trying not to interrupt him!   :para  :wink

After our Meals on Wheels deliveries, we stopped at Braum's and then came on home.  I left at about noon and got gas for my van, the oil changed in my van and my tires checked, then finally got the nose piece on my sunglasses fixed!  After that, I went to the new location for Steinmart with my coupons!  I found three beautiful jackets and got them for 25% off for two, and 20% off for one!  One is kind of dressy and the other two look very similar to the jacket JoAnn wore for both the Clay Gala in October and the Gala at the Cowboys Stadium.  I will have to go check out her picture and see if I bought "her" jacket!  :lol


Frankie,
I have all kinds of Easter things;  stuffed rabbits, ceramic rabbits;  lots of plastic eggs (for hiding), even a ceramic rabbit band with rabbits playing instruments!!  I have probably 25 Easter placemats.  I used to have the family for Easter, so I "collected"  all of these things!  I could set up an Easter Tablescape with just the things I have!   

Frankie and Sharon,
I just loved how the renowned plastic surgeon was willing to "step out of the box" and take care of the little pug and so many others joined in, too! 

Sharon,
So glad to hear you had a great time with your mom and sister at Niagara Falls.

Pepe,
I told my sister the recipe for the dump cake and she couldn't believe you just sprinkle the cake mix on it without any water or oil!!  But mine turned out good! 


I hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon!  :hugs

Just woke up from a nap - slept a whole hour!

Pepe and Prissy - that cake sounds so good - I am in the mood for something sweet - rare for me to crave sweets, but I'm having one of those days.

Pepe - it is rare to get a grown child alone. That is why I always check to see if my son has time for lunch whenever I go "little" shopping.

Prissy - I have several ceramic bunnies and other Easter decorations, but I don't have a tablecloth or placemats. I have several "plain" runners that go down the center of my table, though. They are neutral colors, so I can use them for different times during the year. Hope your taxes come out well! I am always happy if I have paid enough in - owning a business takes the fun out of a refund - if we are due one, we just leave it there to count toward the amount we will owe the next quarter.  :cry

Sharon -  did you win a million dollars at the casino??? Did you go on the tour of the Falls, and did you take photos? I bet getting away on a "girls trip" was so much fun!  :bouncy

I haven't gotten anything done today - time to get to work.

EDIT - Glory - great minds think alike! Hope your nap ws as good as mine!  :lol

Frankie, the million is waiting for someone else :lol We stayed in a fallsview room, literally overlooking the falls, and took Mom down to an observation area before we left today. I have not been able to find the camera since Al passed Frankie, and keep saying I will buy one, then I don't. I really should, they aren't that expensive.
All I know is that Mom had a wonderful time, so great to hear her laugh :hugg It's been hard on her losing Woody, 65 years they were married and totally in love.

Frankie,

When I got my gas, which I almost always get at QT, I had a coupon from Skip for a free donut.  So we split the donut after lunch, but then I had a chocolate chip cookie from my "ebay" sister.  Almost anytime I stop by her house, she sends me on my way with a paper plate of chocolate chip cookies.

We also still have Girl Scout cookies in the house, too!! :eek


Sharon,

All of Frankie's questions:  Ditto!!  :lol  EDIT:  I just saw your post.  This is the trip I want to take to Niagara Falls and stay in a room where you can see the Falls.  Sounds like a great time for all!   The million $ wold just complicate your life!! :lol


I just looked at some Raleigh Gala pictures and I think I did buy the brown jacket just like JoAnn's!   :naughty  However, I did get a similar one in black with purple and blue designs on it!! :thumb


No more tablescapes, but because of St. Patrick's Day coming soon, here is a GREEN TEA POT!

GLORY, thank you so much for the darling card.  So you lost it huh????   You are so funny , you also brighten my day, .  I also wished   you lived near by, I could use some help. 

FRANKIE, I wish you were here I would send this cake home with you .  Can't be to fattening as it doesn't have any frosting on it.  :bigsmile 

Off to lay down and prop the foot up.  It keeps swelling for some reason just the left foot.  I already take the highest mg of water pill daily.  I guess I am going to have to go back to see the doctor.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

   It has been a long day.  I FINALLY GOT THE OLD BANDAGE OFF AND FOR A FEW MINUTES, MY FOOT WAS ABLE TO BREATHE!  THEN A NEW. LIGHTER WRAP WAS PUT ON IT.
  It doesn't look that bad.  Of course, I had to look beyond the swelling, purple toes,side and heel, stitch line about the length of my pointer finger. doctor's ink marker still there but hey, I wasn't upset.  My surgeon was out of town today, so I saw his partner.
  He said that we need to still use ice and elevation for the swelling and to "USE MY JUDGEMENT" ON THE BOOT.  TRANSLATION--IF I TAKE MORE THEN TWO STEPS, BOOT/CRUTCHES NEED TO BE USED.  I can still go out to stores and if a electric cart is available, I'm supposed to use it.  PEPE--RACE YOU! :bigsmile
    Now, I go back on the 19th to take the stitches out and then I "might" get to switch to a after surgery shoe instead of the the boot.  Hope so!  I'm already dreading the stitch removal.  Pain!

     I stayed  on my bed the major part of the afternoon watching television.  Even Sammy wanted on my bed and he was so good.  He just cuddled up next  to me and slept for about an hour.  He runs when he sees my crutches though.

Sharon--Glad your trip was fun.. I LOVE NIAGRA FALLS!  I'VE BEEN TWICE.  ONCE IN OCTOBER AND ONCE IN MARCH.  THE MARCH TRIP STILL HAD ICE AND SNOW AND WE TOOK A HELICOPTER TOUR OVER THE FALLS!!!!!  I ALSO LOVE THAT QUAINT TOWN CALLED NIAGRA ON THE LAKE!
   MY FRIEND AND I WENT TO THE CASINOS TOO BUT WE ALSO LEFT OUR MILLION DOLLARS THERE FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO WIN! :lmao

Bet the concert is in full swing and that everyone is having a great time  :clap

Prissy and Sharon - Maks and partner were on Entertainment Tonight yesterday, and Derek and partner were featured tonight - hope you both got to see it. And I suppose you both know about the Bachelor special this coming Monday. I might actually watch it - I want to know why anyone in their right mind would be on that show!!!  :lol They are going to be talking to former Bachelors and Bachelorettes.

Sharon - sounds like a great trip - I did not know there are hotels with views of the Falls. Wish you had bought that camera in time for this trip! How lucky you were to have parents who were in love with each other. I can't even imagine that. I second what Pepe said - your Mom is lucky, too, to have you and your sister.

Prissy - only in Texas - coupons for dounts when you buy gas!  :lmao (We do get a free car wash here with a fill-up!

Pepe - If that cake was here, it would be dangerous  :para I have to save up, my calories, though, for April. Amy, Robin, and Kaitlyn all have their birthdays that month - there will be lots of cake to try to resist. Son is planning a surprise party for DIL (she will be 40). I am helping with the mean stuff! We are collecting old people stuff for a gift basket.  :wink I have promised to print the invitations for him, too.

JoAnn - I'm sorry you still have to use the boot - it will be worth all of this, though, if your pain is gone when the stitches are removed.

Glory - I do not expect Meesa to post photos tomorrow, but maybe when they get back from their honeymoon. I read somewhere that they are going to Las Vegas.

Good Morning Everyone,

Sharon- :hugg Take care of your cold. 

  I saw the photos last night on Yahoo.com of Clay on stage.  Very nice and he looked like he was having fun too.  Can't wait to hear the reports from everyone.

The sun is shinning and it seems  to be a lovely day so far.  I'm taking Mom to the beauty shop in another 30 minutes.  I "see" that she has written a couple things as errands this morning too.  One is to go to Sam's Club. 
Pepe---I get on an electric cart at Sam's Club and race you in my mind! :lmao

I can wiggle my toes this morning! :bigsmile  I kept my foot elevated most of yesterday and ice on it quite a bit too.  I already have the boot on since we're going to leave  shortly.  I'm determined to quit feeling sorry for myself and just go about like normal.  I'll just elevate/ice each day until Friday.


Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: Pepe on March 13, 2010, 06:02:38 AM
JOANN, glad you can wiggle your toes!!  :clap  Yep wish I could go to Sam's club with  you we would have fun to have such a large store to race around in.  Right now I am on QVC I am getting dangerous shopping on the computer.  Just ordered two bras  yesterday and spent $75 and last week bought some skin care and make up by Clinique and spent $60.  Gotta stop this!!!! Thank goodness for General Electric's pension check.  :bigsmile

GLORY, I have missed being able to go to a Hallmark store to buy some cards, my favorite place to go.  Hope you and Callie have a nice relaxing weekend.  Rent a good movie and buy yourself something special for dinner.

FRANKIE, enjoy having birthday cakes and forget on those special days the word diet.  I love birthday cakes, they just seem to taste better.

SHARON, I feel so bad that you don't feel good.  Stay in bed and stay warm I will fix  you some home made soup to bring to you.  (I wish I could).

Good Morning!

It is a beautiful, sunny day here, but a cold wind is blowing. Hope it does warm up some - lots of winter cleanup needs to be done in the yard. We had planned to get started today.

I saw the photos from last night, and read that Quiana and Ruben were part of the show - I hope my PBS station carries it - sounds like a really good concert. Can't wait to read the reviews.

Meesa - Happy Wedding Day!!! :goodluck: :flower

Sharon -  :hugg thank you for cooking breakfast, even though you do not feel well.

Pepe - I'm officially declaring it Spring. Lewis bought flats of several kinds of tomatoes yesterday - he plans to transplant them into individual pots today, so they can grow better. One of my chores today will be to locate all of the plastic buckets so we can cover the tomatoes when he sets them out into the garden too early!  :lol Wish you were here - he could use a supervisor!

JoAnn - have fun running around SAMS - be careful and do not run over anyone  :wink Wonder who would win a race between you and Pepe?

Have a fun Saturday, everyone - I may get dressed (I just got up) and shop a little while waiting for it to warm up. Need a few groceries, and I have not checked out the Easter things at the dollar stores - I am almost finished with the grandchild baskets, and would like to finish.

Good Morning!

Skip just left for his Computer meeting and I will be going with my friend from the quartet to see a play about a quartet, "Opus," this afternoon!  I will try to get a little housework done this morning! 

It is the start of Spring Break in my area, so Monday orchestra practice and my Monday Wedding Professional Lunch/Meeting have been cancelled.  So, lots of free time this week!  I noticed that the Dallas Arboretum has a beautiful display of flowers and, hopefully, Skip and I can take that in soon!   My cello sister and my youngest sister may want to go to Houston to see our newest great nephew, but Skip also wants to go,......so, we will just see what happens.  Skip and I may go down ourselves nearer the end of the week.

Pepe,
I have been on a "jacket" shopping spree.  Two coat like jackets from Sears, a purple and a deep red one, each regularly $44 marked down to $7.99 and then the dressier jackets yesterday from Stein Mart, 25% and 20% off!   :wheee   Now, I have to find closet space.   I need to go through my closet again and see about donating more clothes.  I am wearing one of my new Stein Mart jackets today to the play.  It is black with blues, purples, and turquoise thread designs through out.  Today I am wearing it with a turquoise shell, turquoise earrings and necklace.  I could very well see blue or purple with it, too!

JoAnn,
I am bringing the brown jacket like the one I described to Pepe with me.  It has threads of orange, peach, and burgundy in it; no black, so I don't know if it is like yours or not.  I will call and see if you all are home and maybe stop by to "compare" jackets after the play!  :lol

Sharon,
Sorry to hear you have a cold.  Lots of rest and liquids should help! 
What a wonderful love story of your parents!  Wow!  They met at 13, married at 19 and were married for 65 years. 

Frankie,
I hope ;you will take pictures of your Easter decorations and your Easter table.  If you serve your Easter dinner buffet style, then you should have room on your table for an interesting centerpiece of flowers and bunnies!!

JoAnn,
I'm glad to hear you will be elevating your foot and using the ice pack. 


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Super Saturday!  :hugs

Back from shopping. I picked up a few things for Easter baskets (I think I am finished), bought groceries, and bought 2 more pairs of jeans. I have to call Amy, who loves to shop at Old Navy. One of the dollar stores had Old Navy jeans for $7.99. Amy has to have talls (took after her Dad), and I have to have short - the store had both, which is very unusual!

Prissy - I am about to get out in the barn and get the boxes of Easter decorations out. While I was gone Lewis hung the St. Patrick's Day flag out, and I see he has the Ester flag out to hang at the end of this coming week. Most kids here will have Spring Break Easter week - I hope all 3 of my grandchildren have break at the same time - I would like to have them all here at once. Cameron might not be able to come, though - the golf team begins play on Monday, and they may even play during break. Enjoy your play - our tiny theatre group is putting on a play here tonight and tomorow - we are talking about going to tonight's performance, which will be at 7 p.m.

Glory - I am happy for Clay  :clap :clap I haven't looked around to see if anyone has posted a recap yet.

GLORY, just keep telling yourself you deserve nice things for once in your life, you only live once and that money  was given to you  so don't feel guilty about buying yourself nice things.  Glad you got the umbrella you will need it with the hot Kentucky afternoons and Callie will like laying under the shade of it too.

FRANKIE, how wonderful that Lewis bought tomato plants.  DUDLEY said she had some planted also and is hoping to get tomatoes before it gets hot in June.  Me I am not having a garden, can't bend over to plant or take care of anything I am afraid.  It will be nice for me to be able to get outside and get fresh air everyday but terribly frusturating to not be able to plant or weed.  Gardening was pretty much my  life for so many years.

I am so happy that Clay's concert seems to have gone so well.  I have to admit I have been hard on him maybe because some of his actions have hurt my  feelings but it sounds like he has been practicing and maybe taking care of that voice of his.  The pictures that Lindsay posted shows that he looks healthy  and very happy.  I wish him so much success and can't wait for the CD to come out.

Good  Afternoon Everyone,

   The afternoon has been elevating my foot and resting/watching television.  Mom and Sammy ended up taking a 2 hour nap!

Pepe--I rode the cart at Sam's Club.  No one would race, so I just did a "solo" tour of the place while Mom picked up her prescription list for the new doctor! :lmao  I'm practicing to meet you on the next course! :lmao

It stayed sunny and beautiful all day.  Started out with a jacket and ended up in the back seat of the car most of the time while we were out.
  We stopped at Luby's to bring home our lunch.  Mom order liver and onions! :nooo  I had one of their new "build" a premire salad.  I liked mine, can't stand liver and onions!

I have to say that Meesa did not plan her wedding well!!  :lmao She missed Clay's concert, and now Kansas is playing in a conference Championship against Kansas State on TV - a really close game! Knowing How Meesa loves Kansas, they may be watching the game at the reception!  :lol

Pepe - Lewis has just worn himself out today. We did not go to the play because he is so tired. He cut broccoli, and also harvested carrotts and radishes from the garden today.

JoAnn - Lewis and Pepe will have to go to Luby's with Jeannie some day - they both like liver - and neither should eat it because of their gout! I do cook liver occasionally because Lewis' gout is controlled well by medication. As I've said before, I would not cook liver for anyone else in the world.  :nooo Glad you are practicing for the race to come - hope I get to see it!

I thought about Woody today - her Illini lost a great game in double overtime - bet she was watching it, too. Lewis tried to help them win - he even wore the Illini shirt that Woody gave him.  :lol I do love March Madness!

Glory - glad to hear that recaps are coming in - I did find the concert thread in Clay Daily. :clap I'm so glad that Clay did so well, and that everyone enjoyed seeing him. Can't wait to read what Betty has to say  :bouncy You should NEVER feel guilty for buying nice things for yourself. If your children were starving, it would be different. But they all have nice families and should have everything they need on their own.

See all of you later, if I can!

Good Evening!

I really enjoyed the play about the string quartet, "Opus."   My friend and I especially appreciated the quartet music played in the background and a lot of the "goings on" among the players.  At the very end, there was a scuffle between the viola player and the first violin player over a violin.  The cello player took the violin and smashed it over a chair! :shock  My friend and I both jumped in our seats at that!  After the play, I was talking to the man in charge of the theater and he said they got the violins from someone who makes violins and used violins that were not finished!  It was still a jolt to see a violin smashed to smithereens!   :para

I stopped by JoAnn and Jennie's to compare my new brownish jacket to JoAnn's and they are different, so.....we won't look like twins if we wear them at the same time!  :lol  Jennie is looking good and JoAnn's foot has a new bandage on it;  wrapped from her toes to up her ankle a ways. 

Exciting to read about Clay's success at the taping yesterday.  I do hope that my local PBS station will air this special.  Maybe it will be part of a PBS fund raiser and the DVD of the performance will be available to contributors!  :thumb


I hope everyone has a restful evening!  Remember, you are losing an hour of sleep tonight!  :tobed

Good  Morning Everyone,


Glory-- :wave  Don't know the time in your area.  I wish I could say, "It's Howdy Dowdy Time!"  I absolutely loved that show growing up.

  Sharon--- I snuck a banana in here for breakfast.  Hope you're feeling better today.

It's going to the low 70's today.  I'm hoping that we're finished with the cold weather.  We always hold off setting out new plants because as soon as we do, we can get a late cold front.  Although the plant places are placing ads like crazy, we'll resist until after Easter.

  I'm wearing all green to church today in honor of tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day.  I have on ONE  Shamrock sock, the foot without the boot, light green slacks and a bright green jacket.  Oh yes, I also have my "Ms. Green M&M watch with a green band.

  If my foot doesn't hurt too much, Mom and I "might" go to Stein Mart after church today.  This is were Prissy bought her darling jackets.  I bought my Gala jacket there and I would like to get a spring one for church and dressy occasions. 
  Prissy stopped by last evening and showed us her new jackets.  They are very cute! :thumb

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Our schools are on spring break this week.  I hoping to stay away from malls, movies etc until after they go back to school.  My cousin Randy, from Rockport, crinches this time of year.  Thousands of college kids hit their beaches.  Drinking, open "hanky  panky", thrash left, etc.  Families stay away from the beach during this week.

I'm going to notice the time of my post as I post this - I can't remember if the site automatically changes with daylight savings time. It is supposed to be near 70 here today, and every day for the next week, too. But as JoAnn said, we always have a cold snap around Easter (last year we had one after Easter), so I am going to try to talk Lewis out of planting anything in the garden at least for 2 more weeks - that will be hard to do!

Wonder when Betty will be getting home? I'm going over to the concert thread to see if she has had a chance to post.

Happy Sunday, everyone - see you later. I'm going to work in and around the house today to try to get ready for a busy week ahead.

EDIT - the time on the Board is correct - it is 11:15 a.m. here!

Good Morning!

I did change the clock beside my bet, but we still missed Sunday School;  just couldn't get up in time!!   We just finished breakfast.  Sharon, since you are under the weather, I will share with everyone what we just had:  Pillsbury Grand biscuits with egg and Louis Rich turkey bacon, hot chocolate with marshmallows and cranberry/grape juice;  also Hostess honey nut cereal with blueberries!! 

As I said, my friend from the quartet and I really enjoyed the play yesterday.  It was written by a viola player so that is why it was so "accurate" in many aspects.  I'm still thinking about that poor violin being smashed!  When I was teaching, we would see students buy or rent some violins that were not very good;  Chinese or Lark brand violins.  I would have gladly let the cello player in the play smash a Lark violin to pieces!  :lol


JoAnn,
I have been wearing green on and off all month.  I believe St. Patrick's Day is Wednesday;  always during Spring Break, it seems.  I have not looked at our newspaper yet so don't know if there is another Stein Mart ad.  I did not find one in Thursday's newspaper.

Sharon,
I hope you are feeling better:  rest and plenty of fluids.   Have you heard about taking a Zi Con tablet at the start of a cold?  It seems to help lots of people and shorten the length of the cold.  I know we have a stack of them in one of the bathroom drawers.  Wish I could have sent you one earlier.  The mail between Texas and Canada seems kind of slow sometimes.

Pepe,
It looks like another sunny, warm day today.  I don't know what we will do, but we might go up to the Heritage Botanic Park in Grapevine and see what is blooming.  No blooms yet for me, but soon, I hope.  The Bradford Pear trees and Rosebud trees all have blossoms in our area now.

Betty,
We all hope to be hearing from you soon.  I'm sure you had a fabulous time and from what I've heard, this was one of the best Clay concerts yet!!

Frankie,
I want to get out my Easter things and have them ready just as soon as Wednesday is over.  Easter is April 4th, so that is soon.  I may start posting St. Paddy and Easter graphics/pictures side by side!  :thumb


I dreamed last night that I was decorating a table for Easter.  I was setting small plates on large plates like in the Tablescapes.  I was actually using dishes I have and mixing in my pink Depression glass dishes, too.  I started to put out my ceramic bunnies, also.  Too bad that when I awoke I didn't have a table all set up!! :lol


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Super Sunday!   :hugs

I read about you getting a start when the violin was smashed :jaw but so happy you enjoyed the play!!!  Thanks for bringing breakfast this morning, I took a bit of cereal and blueberries, thanks :wink
I love your little Easter joke about the egg hiding :lol, how cute are those chickens!!
Frankie, I think you mentioned about the special Bachelor show tomorrow night, must remember to tell Mom :wink You are getting ready for lots of company I see this week :bouncy

    Frankie,
                    I"m wonderfully exhausted and on cloud nine.
                     
                    We got back at 11oclock this morning, very tired but happy.

                     Don"t think I shall do a long train journey like  again. Only for Clay!!!!

                        Met people who remembered Shirl so I must call her and tell her
                       
                        She would have loved the show but will probably see it better on PBS.

                                        Our seats great... front row of the Messanine PERFECT!!
                                  NOW TO THE CONCERT THREAD TO PUT IN MY TWO CENTS WORTH.


                                                    I"ll post more tomorrow.

Good Afternoon!

JoAnn called about noon and said that she and Jennie were heading for Stein Mart.  I finished getting ready and said I would meet them there.  The brownish jacket I bought on Friday still had that plastic round thing attached to it!   I did not notice it, but JoAnn did when I showed her the jacket yesterday evening.  I took my receipt and the jacket into Stein Mart with me and a lady at the register took it off for me;  didn't even want to see my receipt.  I looked around a bit, but didn't buy anything else.

JoAnn, Jennie, and I went out to our vehicles and I called Skip to come meet us for lunch at the Mexican Inn.   So, about 3 hours after breakfast, Skip and I had lunch!  :lol   We got what we usually get......the deluxe nachos that we share! 

Skip is sleeping in his recliner, and I want to do some more work around the house.  I can't believe how fast this day is going.  It's almost four in the afternoon, but of course, it's really almost three!  :doh


Betty,
I hope you are resting.  I read your review in the PBS thread.  23 hours on the train!! :eek   I didn't realize the trip would be that long.  I can understand your being tired.  It sounds like you had a wonderful time.

Sharon,
I hope you are feeling better.  The Zi con is supposed to work only if you take it at the very beginning of a cold.  I don't know if that is true or not.  I imagine there are some who say, yes, and others who say, no!   Another "funny Easter" picture below!  :lol

Pepe,
I hope you are doing well today. 


I hope you all are having a lovely afternoon!  Still beautiful here;  almost hot!  I had the AC on in my van!

Good Afternoon,

  Like Prissy said, we did go to Stein Mart.  I did like Prissy and bought some lovely spring jackets but only two!  One is white with a "swirl" pattern of two spring shades of the tan family.  I can wear with white or beige pants.  The second is a light turquoise, and other light blue swirl and more of a "jean" jacket style.  I can wear it with white, navy or jeans.   I didn't try any pants because that would have involved getting the boot off and on.
  We did enjoy lunch with Prissy and Skip.  I ate half my salad because every bite I took, I could "see" the scales tomorrow morning! :bigsmile  YES, I DID EAT MOST OF MY BOWL OF CHIPS!  YES, THEY WERE SERVED WITH SALSA, WHICH IS GOOD, BUT CHIPS, OH OH!
  I'll just try to use my "no exercise and medicine" excuse one more week for the scales! :bigsmile

   I did come home and elevated/iced my foot for at least two hours.  I'm trying to be good and do as the doctor says! :bigsmile

Glory---I'm glad that Callie likes her little bed. Yesterday,  I picked up Sammy, all 35 lbs of him. and "intended" just to hold him in my lap for a few minutes.  The little rascal fell asleep on my stomach, head over my arm and one paw on the  arm and one below the arm.  He slept there for about an hour.  I was "slumped" down in the chair elevating my leg and he "thought" the stomach looked like a nice fluffy dog bed.

PRISSY love your cartoons, now I know how you can eat all those marvelous meals and not gain weight cause you don't sit still long enough to put weight on.  You are always on the go and the weight can't catch up to you.   :bigsmile :lol   Your jackets sound great and what a wonderful buy, great prices, better than mine. 

JOANN, love the Easter pictures.  Especially the one with Jennie and Sammy and the bunnies.  That Sammy is such a lover such a great member of your family.  I am glad you are trying to be good with that foot sure don't want any complications with it .   Your jackets sound great and I guess you also got the great sale prices. 

Was out today to Walmart.  Bought some things for Preston, pajamas, a shirt and a sports outfitl with jacket, shirt and jogging pants.  Will put them in  a Easter basket with a toy I will buy, think he is to  young for candy at two  years old.  I did pretty good driving the carts today and was not in the pain I was in the last time I got out so I was very pleased.  Stopped at McDonalds and ate while we watched Lake Huron and that was nice than we didnt have to cook supper.  Just a sandwich tonight will do.  Also took a few steps without my walker today, it was there if I had to grab it but all in all I was thrilled that I did that much.  My greatest fear is that I will never be able to walk again on my own but maybe there is hope after all.

BETTY, so glad you enjoyed yourself and that was a mighty long train trip.  For some reason didn't think it was that long.  did you have to sleep sitting up in the seats?  My DIL always takes a train from Arizona and gets a sleeper car, I believe it takes her three days to get to Michigan.

ANGELA, always so happy to see you post.  Glad you got some relaxing time in this weekend.  I bet your kitty  was happy he had his mommy home.

SASHA,  did you make a decision  yet on the kitten?????

ANGELA -  :hugg I thought about you ealier in the week - I got the ironing caught up!  :lol

JoAnn and Prissy - wish I could have gone shopping with you - our Stein Mart closed (it was in Alexandria). There is still one in Shreveport, but I seldom go there to shop.

Prissy - I would have like to have seen your face when that violin was smashed!  :jaw

Sharon - hope your cold is better soon.

Glory - look at the bottom right corner of your computer screen - there should be some icons there, and one of them should be a clock for changing the time on your computer. You can also go into your computer settings to have the time change automatically next time.

Have a great evening, everyone!

FRANKIE, tell Lewis to take it easy and not work so hard.  For some reason gardners usually can't wait to plant and always plant to early.  Guess they like to worry about their plants part of it.   :lol  Wished I had some of that fresh broccoli and sweet carrots.  Nothing like fresh veggies just ask Preston, he learned to garden last summer with his daddy and loved pulling a carrot out of the ground and eating it.  He sure looked precious doing that.

Later on we are planning to have a WW ice cream sandwich!  :purpbana :lol Lewis is working on cleaning the yard and the barn, too - I hope winter is really gone. He has moved the ferns out of the greenhouse today. Even if we have more cold weather, they will be O.K. I love to see children with their own gardens - they are always so proud of growing their own food! Hope you can get some photos of Preston and his gaden this year.

Good Evening!

Skip and I started watching a movie I TiVo'd a while back:  A PAINTED HOUSE based on the book by John Grisham (which I had read a few years ago.)  Then, the electricity went off, but it's on again now!  Strange!

Pepe,
I am so glad to hear that you had a good day!  Walmart and then McDonald's with a view of the lake!  Sounds like a great day and no pain like last time!  :clap
I love to look at the clothes for little ones at Walmart.  Almost everytime I do, I see something cute for a great niece or the new great nephew and call my ebay sister (their grandmother) to check on sizes!!  I can just picture Preston pulling a carrot out of the ground and eating it!  So cute!

JoAnn,
Great Easter pictures!  I have a bunch of them, so I may have to start posting more than one at a time.

Frankie,
When the cellist smashed that violin, it did give me a jolt.  I jumped a little in my seat!!  I wanted to tell everyone that there were parts of the violin that could be salvaged:  the chin rest, the pegs, the bridge, the strings, etc!! :lol
I am into the Easter posting mode!!

Angela,
Always happy to see you post!  We had such big winds on Friday, my swing by the pool toppled over (again), and a few things on the gazebo counter blew off and broke.

Pepe,
Remember my fountain that I got years ago that turned out to be only about 12 inches tall?  It looked good on the Gazebo counter and has been there for a while.  The winds were so strong it blew off and broke into pieces!   I am so glad my pot people, Chip and Dale, are safely on the patio!!

 SHARON, so good to know you are feeling some better.  Now that your fever broke please stay in today and rest, let yourself get over this virus and  you don't get a setback.  Sure hope your mom doesn't get it.  I need to take a lesson from Woody and how to act when your health is bad.  I guess I have just not accepted things very well, just keep telling myself I am to young for all this crap. 

BETTY,  yep you sure do need to rest as much as possible.  Wish they would deliver Sophie to you so you didn't have to go after her.  She will be thrilled to be home again. 

PRISSY, what a shame the little fountain broke!!!  I am so glad the pot people are okay.  Mine is sitting in my kitchen would be so upset if something happened to it, I love it!!!!!! 

FRANKIE, I am looking for a recipe for Irish Soda bread.  I made it about 15 years ago, it did  not have yeast in it and it was so good but have no idea where the recipe is for it.  I will fix my corn beef on St. Patricks Day and wanted some soda bread.  I remember it was very good.

  Thanks for the coffee, got to grab and go!  I'm running, no hobbling to my weight management class.  I'm trying to "learn" how to stand on the outside of my shower and stick my head inside to wash it all the while when I'm keeping my bad foot dry!  Can't wait for the stitches to come out on Friday.  The first thing I plan to do:  TAKE A NICE HOT BUBBLE BATH FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR! :bigsmile

Good Morning!

I stayed up late watching my recordings of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, and the new CELEBRITY APPRENTICE!  :shock  As you can imagine, it was hard to get up this morning.

I had another strange dream this morning and remember a lot of it:  I was an orchestra teacher in a high school and the principal had called all of the faculty and students to the auditorium.  The faculty was made up of several of you from Claymaniacs! :lol   I was sitting on the front row with you all.  I looked down at my skirt and realized I had food stuck to it.  I tried to scrape it off!  Then, the principal came over and sat near me.  The principal was OBAMA!!  He said there wasn't enough money in the budget for a high school musical this year;  too expensive to get costumes, sets, etc.  He wanted the choir teacher and me to put on a program.

Then I went searching for the Choir teacher.  She was hiding out.  I went to her house and her two brothers answered the door.  They had on strange robes and pointed hats and said she wasn't there.  Then I found her at a radio station doing a broadcast, but all she would do was repeat what everyone else said!  Then I woke up!!   I know!   Very odd!   The choir teacher was not a Claymaniac but someone I didn't know.   :hypno

Free day today!  Because of Spring Break, no wedding professionals lunch/meeting and no orchestra practice.  Youngest sister (the kindergarten teacher) called me last night and said she wanted to have a brunch for St. Patrick's Day (Wednesday);  green eggs and ham and other green foods!!  Skip and I will go and other family members that can make it.   Should be fun!


Sharon,
I loved seeing that picture of you and Woody!  I know what a special bond you two had.  I'm glad you are starting to feel better!

Pepe,
I did have several years to enjoy the little terra cotta water feature.  We never set it up as a water feature and actually used the pump with it for another water feature;  I believe the statue Willie's Dillema. 

Betty,
I hope you take a couple of days just to rest and take it easy!  I'm so glad you had a good time and that the concert was wonderful.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Marvelous Monday!


I heard Skip in the other room singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the dogs!  I forgot that today is their Birthday! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SHADOW & SANDY!  SIX YEARS OLD TODAY!!

Good morning everyone,

             I slept late this morning and then I just had to call Shirl. We had a nice long chat, mostly
             about a wonderful young man.
                           
                    Went and picked up Sophie, they had given her a bath and put a bandana on her. They
                  love her because she gets along with all the dogs and people. Sunny has stopped miowing
                  now, I think he missed her.

                To the main topic now, maybe in sections because of my computer jumping.

                  Weds night we got on the train at 8pm and arrived in Raleigh at 9.30Am. No sleep but excited. Taxi to the Marriott
                    and luckily got into a room right away. Showered, etc. then met up with Claudia. We chatted, eat and met people.

                    I got into my PJs, bed socks and heating pad in bed at 8PM and that was the end of my day.

                  Just lost  my post so will start again.

                  Friday morning Marilyn arrived. We visited around the lobby ,which was packed with incoming
                   Clay fans . After lunch   people disappeared to get  beautified,or like me did some wishful dreaming.
                  Mimi"s husband had kindly provided transportation to "The Pit" for dinner. After that it was  time to go to the venue.

                    The excitement was really building now. The foyer was jam packed with people chatting, laughing and very excited.
                      It seemed forever before the doors opened for us. Our seats were perfect, center first row Messanine. I did get a hearing aid
                      but it would"nt work because of all the electrical equitment being used. The accoustics were wonderful though, I could hear

                      everything and see everything .Did take my binaculares!

                                                   To be continued

 :waveHello!



   Good news!  I lost 1.5 LBS this week!  I had gained 1.0 LBS last week due to going just 3 days after surgery.  Hopefully I  can do it again next Monday.

          The curtains opened, I think? The setting was gorgeous, the band split on either side and in the center
           a tall slim man with his back to us slowly turned around and came toward  front stage singing "Mack the
            Knife" The place erupted with aplause and cheers. After the first few notes we knew this was something very special.
             I won"t list all the songs as  they have been listed on the concert thread.

               I can"t find words to tell you how wonderful his voice was, the best by far that I have ever heard him. Everything he sang he
                nailed it perfectly. The band was excellent, a little loud but they could"nt drown him, he was more than up to the challenge.

                   When he came to talk to the lady who traavelled 36 hours on buses, he was just two rows below us so we had a wonderful
                   look at him.  He looked gorgeeeeeeeeeeous'!!!!!


                     I loved it when he paid  tribute to his teachers and especially to the one who had him eat lunch in her classroom because he did"nt

                      have friends. What a sweet lady.

                           The last song other than the repeats was UM. This was his and Ben"s arrangment. It was fabulous. The note he held at the

                           end of it was unbelievably astounding. UM is now his!!!! The roof was in danger of being blown oss with the applause.

                                     My arms hurting from sitting under the AC on the train so I will finish now. If I think of anything else will post it later.

                                                   Hope you have"nt all fallen asleep!!!!!

Betty - I am so glad you got to talk to Shirl. Yesterday she told me she was "feasting on all of the concert recaps" - I know she was so happy to hear yours in person.  :bouncy Wonderful additional recap!  :bouncy

Congratulations on the weight loss, JoAnn - it means so much to see that scale go down when you have tried so hard.  :clap

Sunny and warm here - I am working on cleaning house and getting Easter decorations out.

JOANN and JENNIE, you both will always amaze me.  You both do brighten my day with these special little packages delivered to my house.  Just going to sit down and write you both a little note of thanks!!!!!!!!!!!   Yep the Texas Trio picture is sitting on my table in the living room.

JOANN, how wonderful you have lost weight this past week.  See you don't have to do all that strenous exercise to lose weight.  I am so happy for you as I know how much you worry about it.  I need to worry also big time, I am trying to cut back but my stomach keeps growling telling me I am starving.

PRISSY, how great that Skip is singing to the puppies.  That is real love!!!!!!!!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SHADOW AND SANDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          To finish my story........ We went to the Sheraton for a buffet breakfast, then i met up with
             
                   the  May, one of the ladies I travelled with. Mimi, Barb, Marilyn, May and I went on the
                     free bus and did a little sight seeing. Went into the Museum of North Carolina History.
                     Shirl and I went there two years ago looking for Clay"s clothing which was supposed
                     to be on display and they said it was in the vault until the museum expanded. Asked
                     again and got the same answer  but they really are expanding .
 
                                  During the concert Clay asked how many people were from the Raleigh area
                      and how many from out of the State.. The outsiders were way, way more.

                               We did have dinner at the Oxford Irish Pub. Marilyn and I were happy because
                       got fish and chips. It was good Prissy!!!!

                                                Sat. night back on the train and home. Exhausted but happy, a concert

                               beyond believe.

A Triple Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday, Casper!  :hb1 :bday1 I bet you will have a big birthday party with  your brother and sisters and your parents! Dudley - I've been meaning to tell you about the cutest little weenie dog that lives on the way to our house - I think about you every time I see him! His owner is older (a man), and can hardly walk - but he is out walking his dog every day anyway - we see him all of the time.

Betty - as I was cooking the talapia last night I thought about you saying that you were going to have salmon every day that Corina is gone!  :lol I hope she is having a great time on her vacation. One of the chefs on the Food Network cooked fish and chips one day - and served them in a newspaper cone.

JoAnn - I used my only two Clay Easter photos last night, so I will have to depend upon you and Prissy. Jan will loved the dragonflies!

Pepe - you should be here to sit out in the warm sunshine in the swing. The ducks are playing in the pond, driving the boys  :bduh as usual. As Lewis says, we are the Funny Farm.

I've just finished moving the living room furniture around - I'm in the mood for Spring cleaning  :jaw

Good Afternoon!

Skip and I went out into the backyard today and he did some cleaning on the pool;  lots of seeds from the plants and trees in it, and I picked up the pieces of the terra cotta pot that broke.  We are going to save the pieces and use them as markers on the ground to label plants.  We saw this in a yard on tour one time and thought it was a nifty idea!  Together, we were able to upright the swing, and I sat in it for a little while.  I think I could have gone to sleep if I'd stayed out any longer!! :sleep

We went out and ran some errands and brought home some KFC!  I ate the two drumsticks and let Skip have the bigger thighs!  Any thing to help lose a few pounds! :wink


 :hb2 :hb1
:birthday  to Mr. Casper, Dudley's precious 5 year old.  I had forgotten Casper shares a birthday with Shadow and Sandy!!  I just love all of your fur babies!

Thanks to Dudley, Pepe, Frankie, JoAnn, Sharon and Betty for the Happy Birthday wishes to Shadow and Sandy.  They had a little extra breakfast this morning and will have a few extra treats today!  :wink


Betty,
I have salmon frozen in the freezer.  I guess I am waiting to eat it when Skip is away or I fix something different for him.  Like Corina, he doesn't care for salmon!   I am really enjoying your recap of your trip and the concert.

Sharon,
I just had a turkey sandwich, an apple, and some chips for dinner last evening.  But my lunch was nachos and chips and sauce at the Mexican Inn!!  Maybe that caused the crazy dream.  Every once in a while, I dream a dream, and wake up thinking it should be a book or movie!! :lol

Pepe,
Skip does love these dogs.  It was so funny when I heard him singing "Happy Birthday."  :lol

Frankie,
I have not taken my Easter things out yet.  We have had such high winds, I am trying to keep my shamrocks on the violin gate wreath from blowing away!


I hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon!  :hugs

I just read Michael's post, too - so sad that so much will be lost. I hate that the ANNs will be lost - thought they would always be there for fans to look back on Clay's career. There is too much hate in the world!!!!! If you do have something that is really special to you, you can print it, or highlight it, copy it, and paste to your computer. I printed both threads when I won my meet and greet for my Atlanta scrapbook.

I'd better get busy and visit everyone's profile to copy email addresses.

Glory - if you had not checked in when I came on site this time, I would have checked on you! Sorry it is still cold there. We just got back from buying flower pots at Walmart and the dollar store.

I will check in with all of you later (if the site is still here!)

Post by: fhmmany2 on March 15, 2010, 07:13:39 PM
Glory - click on "profile" at the top of the page to get to your own progile - look to the left, and you will see "Modify Profile" The very first line "Account Related Settings" is where you can change your email. To get to other profiles to check to see if others have listed their emails, just click on the profile button beneath their Avie where they have posted (I do not know if there is a way to get to a list of members - there was at one time, but the site has changed since then). Maybe Michelle can help with that question.

EDIT - I didn't realize that most of you have hidden your email addresses!

Good Night, OCD - hope you are still here tomorrow!

When I look at my profile, my email is not hidden.   However, when I went to the profiles of those of you posting today on the OCD, Pepe, JoAnn, Frankie, Corbet, Dudley, and Glory..... all of your emails say "hidden."   

I want someone to go to my profile and see if my email says "hidden" or shows my email.  It should show my email!

I have spent most of the evening copying things I want to save from Claymaniacs including all 144 of my birthday poems, my dialogs in the vacation thread and from Clay concerts including my Meet and Greet.  All of the pictures are stored in my Photobucket, but I want to keep my "diary" of some of the Clay trips.

Hopefully, we will not lose this site, but I do hope we keep our secondary site.  I do have that bookmarked! :thumb

 Tomorrow afternoon I have an appointment with the oral surgeon who removed my tooth a few months ago.  I will see him and probably schedule an appointment to remove the "partner" tooth.  Very frustrating to have to lose a tooth because it is shifting!   :bang


I hope you all have a restful night!  Maybe I won't have any more strange dreams!!  :hypno  (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v447/Prissy2/Easter/gif-3.gif)

Love the Easter Bunny photo - I have all of our grandchildrens' EB photos framed and on a table together.

Peggy, I just wrote the same thing in that thread, it's like a computer crash, and losing everything.  I know it really affects us here as we've been a family for many years, just like the OCD and BLPT, I'm sick.  I often go back and read the wonderful posts surrounding the many happy and sad events we've shared here.  We are long distance friends only by the geographic constraints placed on us, we are close as any family.

I often go back and read the wonderful words of comfort to me when Al and Woody passed away, how you all circled the wagons when so many of your OCD members passed away, when our Debi passed, also the many joyous occasions we've shared after get togethers :bang

PRISSY, checked your profile and your email address was there so double checked it and I had the right one.  Got Joann's and heard from Sasha last night to make sure we had the right addresses. 

Very upsetting news about the site and wonder why  we weren't notified earlier seeing we were asked to send money for a new site,. 

I am going to go and add my email address to my profile.

Good Morning Everyone,


   It is rainy and much cooler today only going to the upper 50's.  Mom doesn't feel good at all, so she has returned to her electric blanketed bed.  Even my leg, the bad one, is achy this morning.  As soon as I finish the post, I'm going to put a heating pad on it.  It is something to see.  Ice on the foot and ankle but at the same time, the heating pad behind the knee and thigh!   I'm a mess! :lmao

  It's sad about the latest trouble here concerning a move and hacking!  I don't have pay pal but about a month ago, I got a "strange" email saying that someone "possibly" had entered illegally into my pay pal account.  STRANGE SINCE I DON'T HAVE AN ACCOUNT!  I just returned an email to them and told them to not bother me anymore.  Needless to say, didn't hear from that con anymore.

  I hope that all of us has a great day today.

Sharon--I grabbed a cup of java! Thanks!  Since I managed to lose 1.5  LBS this week, I'm sticking to the diet this week.  Of course, yesterday I "snuck" in a fried thigh and leg! :bigsmile   As Prissy showed me, a thigh has 360 cal and a leg has about 110!  I'm bad, but I have the rest of the week to work it off.  Love my fried chicken, can't help it! :bigsmile

Good Morning!

I see we are still here, for now. I'm not going to talk much this morning - want to try to save what I can - there will be so much lost. After 1:00 p.m. today I will basically be gone until bedtime, so I have to do what I can this morning. I also have to wait until Lewis leaves for work - he has a couple of things going on the computer, so he will finish those before he leaves.

I will be back to check on all of you later - we need to think of ways to inform other members (such as Meesa). She will come back from her honeymoon, and the site will be gone.

Good Morning!

As JoAnn said, it is cool and rainy this morning.  I don't think the rain is supposed to last.  We may go to the Exchange on the military base in west Fort Worth before my appointment with the oral surgeon at 2 this afternoon.

Very sad about the site possibly ending.  I have been a bit selfish and saved some of my own threads and posts, but if we are still here, later maybe Skip can help me and show me how to save more things.  I will probably go to FUN STUFF and try to save some of the Creative Writing there, especially the wonderful posts by Lady C  (Kris).    I'm not sure about the Garden Threads;  so many pictures there.  I will just have to see how it goes.

Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Tuesday!  :hugs

4.  When the page  opens, make sure you write your email address.
5.You will find a statement  "Hide email address  from the public.
6. Make sure the box next to it is unchecked!
7. Got to  the bottom of the page next to "Current Password"
8.  Type in your current password to this site.
9. PRESS THE CHANGE PROFILE BOX  AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE PAGE.

If this is done correctly, (takes about two minutes) 3 symbols will appear under your avatar!  People can then press the profile symbol under your avatar and then see your email.

It worked when Prissy and I just did ours.

JOANN, I am with you I love that Fried Chicken. I am a thigh and leg person to, I like the darker meat and hubby likes the white meat.  Although I love the rotisserie chickens at Walmart.  The white meat is delicious on them.  They inject them with seasoning I think.  I just had a lemon pepper one and it was sooooooooo good.

GLORY, wrote your email address down in my book.

Pepe----Hope you're feeling better this afternoon.  Mom finally got out of bed around  4p.m.!  Achy and just plain doesn't feel well today. 

  I only went to the grocery store then to Braum's to get Mom's milk and chocolate/pecan yogurt.  I came home had lunch, put the ice on the foot and a hot pad behind the knee and "bam!" I was out like a light for over an hour!

  A friend just told me that a possible 3 concert date is out and about.  July 31 at the Silver Legacy Casino in Reno, Nevada!

JOANN, sorry you and Jennie did not feel oood today .  I had a bad day also don't think you got my answer to your pm as I never heard from you .  I bet you were gone to the store than Iwas gone.  Chocolate/pecan yougart?  Wow!!!!!  I just tried some vanilla that I didn't care for but tried some key lime pie that I did like.  I have been trying to develop a taste for yougart as a low calorie snack in the evening.  Kind of take the place of ice cream.

Good Evening!

Skip and I did go to the Exchange where I bought hair color, lotion, and a few other items.  Then we went to my appointment with the oral surgeon.  The oral surgeon took a new x-ray and we compared it with the one from a few months ago when I had that tooth removed.  The tooth two dentists told me to have removed looked like it had not shifted at all.  The oral surgeon said he did not want to take out a good tooth.

I was glad to hear that.  We decided that he would put an implant in the space where the tooth was removed;  so instead of having two teeth gone;  I will have all of my teeth!  This is what I wanted from the beginning.  The implant is not cheap but I think it's my best option.  I will have it done on March 29!

Then Skip and I decided to have a late lunch at the Macaroni Grill near TCU (Texas Christian University).  We split the warm spinach salad which was huge and then Skip had the Chicken Marsala and I ordered the Honey Balsamic Chicken (which I had boxed up to take home.  I was full from the salad.)


NOTICE TO EVERYONE:  You can go to your profile and see your own email, but that doesn't mean the rest of us can.  Here are the ones on the OCD who have HIDDEN EMAILS to the rest of us:

Sharon
Jan
Pepe
Corbet
Glory

The following have emails and the little white envelope that the rest of us can see:

JoAnn
Frankie
Prissy

I have everyone's email listed above except for Betty's.   I also have Anniebelle's (Carol), Michelle's, Marilyn's,  and Spikee's emails.  Someone needs to contact Lolita!   I don't think I have an email address for her.

Glory,
I sent you a list of the emails I have.

Betty,
Do you want to PM me your email?  I don't know what to say about the PM's.  I have saved some from Liz, JJ(Joyce) and others no longer with us.  I think I will delete them all if someone says we should.  I haven't heard what we should do!! :dunno

If anyone has some pictures they want me to save in my photobucket, point me to the right thread(s).

Have a peaceful evening!  :hugs

  In order for us to see your email.  You MUST enter your password and submit change(to show)  Then a little white envelope (like mine) will appear under your avatar for all of us to see.

Sharon---I might see about the Reno concert.  I like that idea then an outdoor one at Ashville and NY.  I can never see the stage while I'm outdoors.  Too short.

Good Evening!

I am happy!   :bigsmile   Youngest sister and "ebay" sister have been sort of "estranged" for a while, but tomorrow all of my sisters plus a couple of husbands and some nieces and great nieces will be at youngest sister's home for a St. Patrick's Day Brunch.  Hopefully, this will be the start of more happy times with ALL of us together!

I now have copies of emails for: Betty, Marilyn, Monica, Pepe, Spikee, Michelle, Sharon, JoAnn, Frankie, Carol, Glory, and Jan.  If anyone else wants to send me their email, I am keeping a list!!

It is odd, but we can each see our own email in our profile, but in some cases, others cannot see the email or the little white envelope under the avatar.

JoAnn gave the steps to add your email to your profile, if you want others to see it.


I am off again!  I hope you all have a good night!  :tobed

I just got home, and am headed for bed. I have another real estate school tomorrow (that will finish my continuing education for the year), so I won't be back until tomorrow afternoon - have another early morning drive. I hope the site will still be here when I get home. I am sad that everything will be lost, but at least there are lots of other Clay sites where we can relive his career - it's the personal things that will be lost that bother me the most.

Have a good night, and a good day tomrrow, too.  :ghug

Good  Morning to everyone.  Hope we're still here.

  Just when I finally get over a 1,000 posts, it looks like I have to start over somewhere else.  Oh well, as I've told friends and family as they move.  Don't be sad.  Memories follow you where ever you go.  Houses are just materialistic things.  Memories and friendships are the important things that you take with you.
   Just like this is a new beginning for Clay, we too will have a new beginning.  Bringing with us our wonderful Claymanica family and meeting new friends in the new neighborhood.  We will all gather for a new housewarming too.


Sharon--I see that you have posted while I'm writing.  I brought a fresh cup of coffee for everyone to share.  I actually bought two doughnuts yesterday for Mom.  If I can sneak one from her, I'll give to the first one you wants it. :lmao  No one gets between Mom and her doughnut! :lmao

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO ALL

That was so beautiful and such a heartwarming message.  I've always loved hearing Roma Downey speak.  Was she singing, too?  Beautiful song!

Sharon -----THANK YOU FOR THE BEAUTIFUL IRISH PRAYER!


  I just saw it and it was so touching.  Prissy and I lost a dear friend last year.  She was so proud of her Irish heritage and I had the pleasure of going to Ireland with her a few years ago.  The photos in your site reminded me so much of what we saw while there.
    I actually spent a birthday at the Cliffs of Mohar.  The Ring of Kerry and Dunloe.  If you have not been to Ireland, just let me say, it's as beautiful as the slide show shows!  The collage I put on this morning has two of my personal photos I took on our trip.  Me kissing the Blarney Stone and in front of the castle.  I had teased Mary about why she wanted to kiss such a thing and that I wouldn't for all the money in the world.  Guess what! I beat her to it and I even bought a pin that says, "I kissed the Blarney Stone and survived!"
 Thank you so much.  I also love Roma and miss her on television too.

SHARON,  you started our day off so beautiful.  Hope you are feeling better today.  Wished you would stay in the house another day and eat lots of hot soup.

JOANN,  you and PRISSY and DUDLEY, my Texas friends really have shown me what friendship can be like.   You still have so many friends after 30 some  years that is wonderful.  I loved  your Ireland pictures.  I don't think some can see real good how you had to lay on your back to kiss that Blarney stone.   You deserved a medal for that!!! 

PRISSY, hot spinach salad sounds wonderful.  I hardly ever buy anything with spinach seeing that there is so much problems with it.  Seems they are always finding something wrong with it.  I should grow my own I guess.  Does Macaroni Grill make their own Pasta?  Have you seen the box mixes by them. it is where the Hamburger Helper is.  I have bought two of them but still  haven't cooked them.

HER, where are you Jayne???????

Can't believe that BOCA  has left us for good but I guess she has.




Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: JoAnn Moody on March 17, 2010, 10:26:38 AM
Sharon,

  The Blarney "Stone" is actually a small part of the castle wall jutted out from the top of the castle.  It is part of a "window/arch" cut out.  The walk about on top of the castle is approx. 100 feet above the ground.  
   The only way up to the top is a pie-shape staircase inside a tower that is so narrow, you can touch the walls all the way up with both arms flat from the palms to the elbows.  Then, when you reach the top, you must walk all the way around the top to the opposite side from where you came up.  The stones are very slick from hundreds of years of weathering.
    They lay you  down on your back and "push" you out from the wall several inches.  You then have to look upward once your under the arch outer wall.  To kiss it, you raise your head up several inches.  It's scary because as you go out from the ledge, you can see the tops of  the trees and realize that you are hanging from a ledge 100 feet above the ground you see.
  The photo you see on the bottom left of my post shows the top of the castle.  The metal bars are guides for your hands.  The helper lays you down on a rug, takes one hand at a time and places it on those bars and "gently" scoots you from the ledge.  He holds your ankles down so you don't slip! :doh

   It was fun, did it once but not twice.  Ireland is gorgeous and just like you think, is Emerald Green. We were there for two weeks.

Pepe,

 Have you had your Irish Soda Bread, corn beef and cabbage yet?   I made us some boiled cabbage for later today but no corn beef.  I'm afraid that I would eat too much of it.   I just boiled the cabbage with a beef bullion cube for flavor.
   It is a gorgeous day today.  Mom is feeling better yet I've chosen not to go out(at least not yet).  I'm trying to stay off my foot as much as I can until the doctor sees it Friday.
   I take Mom in the morning to have the  new hearing aides checked for a weekly  update on how they're doing.  It is a 9:30 appointment.  I'm still going to go on line tomorrow and possibly see how good the tickets look for Reno.  It starts noon our time period.

I'm home from school!  :clap I'm finished with the required stuff for the year, but I may begin studying for my Brokers' license on line. That way, I can study and take  practice tests when it is convenient for me. I would still have to go take the final test in person.

Pepe - Son took me out to lunch. I had a freash spinach salad that, in addition to the spinach, contained grilled chicken breast, strawberries, cantelope, honey dew melon, and pecans. It was topped with an orange salad dressing. I am trying to figure out what that dressing contained other than orange juice - it was delicious!

JoAnn - I'm enjoying the photos and the trip to Ireland.

Prissy - hope you do get photos of your green food  :lol

Glory - hope your tests turn out well.

I'm off to spend some time with the boys - we may run to town, then I am going to try to save a few more ANN Threads.

Have a great afternoon - see all of you later.

FRANKIE, what a fabulous lunch. I bet the plate looked gorgeous with all that color.  Was the dressing real sweet like a poppyseed dressing.  Was it a thick dressing like they would use with yogurt or mayonnaise or thin like they would use with a oil?  What a wonderful meal for summertime!!!!!!!! 


Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: Pepe on March 17, 2010, 02:51:14 PM
JOANN, just finished my fabulous dinner of corn beef, cabbage, Yukon Gold potatoes, and carrots.   The soda bread turned out great.  I ate tons and tons it is like I couldn't stop.  I kept telling myself if you stop eating long enough  you will feel full, but I didn't stop it tasted to good.  Tomorrow it will be grilled Rueben sandwiches.  I did what FRANKIE suggested though and cooked my cabbage separate and the last hour I put it in the crock pot with the corn beef and veggies.  Made a little horseradish sauce for the corn beef and it was so good.   You know that takes guts JoAnn to just climb to the Blarney Stone much less kiss the darn thing.   :lol

GLORY, what in the world are you up to,  you are awfully quiet.

DUDLEY, tests at the hospital turned out fine at least the EKG did.  Hope you had another beautiful day.  We had another day of 61 degrees,  unheard of we are afraid what the summer might be like as the weather is so unusual.

BETTY, so very sorry your not feeling well.  You have to be exhausted though.  I am impressed at how strong you are and all you do.

Pepe - the dressing was like a poppy seed dressing - it definitely did not have any mayonnaise in it. I had a sweet taste, and was light orange in color - it tasted like an orange, and it was on the menu as their "special orange dressing".

Your supper sounds wonderful. Since we had our corn beef a few days ago, I have steaks marinating. We have been really, really busy, and I wanted to cook a good supper since Lewis has had to care for the boys as well as doing all of the work the last couple of days. He's been wonderful about me sitting here at the computer for the site. The house is a wreck, and there is laundry to be done, but he doesn't care  :clap

Betty -  :hugg feel better soon.

I just came in . I am so glad I did. I had no idea what was happening and still don't really.  Just the few posts I have
read.  I don't know how to say how sad I am that I haven't   been posting for so long. It isn't that I haven't been thinking about all of you , I have. Remember when I broke three fingers
on my left hand. About 3 0r 4 weeks later my whole hand
went numb. I had such a hard time typing because I couldn't
feel the keys. It is just now that I am getting some of the feeling back. To be honest I joined facebook for a friend. I have a farm
over there to take care of. I couldn't do that either so my nephew
took over it for me. Now he wants to keep it. And I am glad he
wants it. It is to time consuming.  I was so happy that now I
could come back.  Are we going to lose the OCD ?   And if we do,
does that mean the end of the OCD?  Or will we have another ssite? I just don't know what is happening. Is there a place I can read about this?  I am praying that everything will work out.   :hugg

Sharon - I was wrong about the DWTS Thread - although it all saved, only the front page will be there when the site goes down - Lindsay showed me how to look at the top of the page to see that the address was not the same as Page 1. So it will just have to go - I'm sorry!

Philly - 10 pages of the ANN are copied - the first 10, wich is about 250 days. I will try to do more, as real life permits. Wish I knew how much time we have. If you've goten the first OCD Threads I think that is the most important. (But I lurked for the first 6 months I was a member of this site - maybe someone who has been here from the start has a special Thread they want saved).

MAY I INQUIRE AS TO 'WHY' A BRAND NEW SITE HAS TO COME ABOUT????

WE WERE HACKED INTO....NOT THE FIRST TIME....IT'S OVER....WHY MOVE....WHY NOT JUST CONTINUE ON AS YOU HAVE BEEN SINCE THIS LAST HACK JOB.....CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN????

Because our site was hacked by a terrorist group who used it to phish (falsely gain username, password, account information) for paypal, possibly to use it to fund their terrorism projects. Once we were hacked by them red flags went up with many internet providers, websites, etc. They blocked access to our site for their users --this means people cannot access our site. Our site is running smoothly because the hackers didn't do anything to the public side of our site, only used our resources and information to illegally gain information from others.

We do not want to be associated with any terrorist organization and we don't want access to our site to be blocked. We have to move to different servers and a different format to break this chain.

Hacking does not always cause chaos that is visible.

FRANKIE, thanks so much for all your hard work saving threads.  The main ones I would like saved is the ANN as this is Clay's website and should contain his career plus all the threads that deal with our wonderful members who have passed away.  I sure never , ever want to leave them behind or not remember them at certain times of the year,  Kind of like going to visit them at the cemetary. 

JAYNE, where are you?  Getting worried that I haven't seen you in a while.

GLORY,  :wave  did you eat at church last night?

DUDLEY, did you see the recipe that Frankie said she had for lunch yesterday ?  It reminded me of last year when you were making salads.  I am so selfish I have not asked how your shoulder is doing since your sugery.  Good question about the site!!!!!!!!  Going to get dressed and try and make it to Walmart.  I have to get some cards and a few other things like prescriptions and will drive the cart around.

Good  Morning Everyone,

 Glad we're still here!  The sun is shining and we're off  in less then an hour to go for Mom's hearing aide check.  This is the first adjustment and she is ready. 

    No plans other then that errand and must get fertilizer because the yardman is coming tomorrow afternoon.  Clean up and fertilize.  We also have bad weather predicted for this weekend.  It's supposed to go down into the 30's at night.
  My Mom's Grandfather always told his family never to plant until after Good Friday, so she keeps up that tradition.  Good thing,  The papers are full of sales on beautiful flowers at the nurseries but then the weather forecast showed bad weather is coming.  I always get tempted with all the spring colors but will wait.
    I still might look at the Reno tickets today for my final decision on that concert.  I'm still kicking myself for not going to the PBS taping.

Good Morning!

We had a wonderful time at my youngest sister's brunch yesterday.  She had beautiful table settings on her breakfast and dining room tables, and all of her food set up on a big table in her game room right next to the kitchen.  I do have pictures, just not downloaded yet.

Pepe, Frankie and food fans:  My sister had a big bowl of green scrambled eggs, a green egg/sausage casserole dish, hash browns casserole, a fruit bowl with blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, grapes, and melons,  croissants, biscuits with sausage gravy, ham, and for dessert brownies with green frosting and green key lime pie and green chocolate mint ice cream!   Her beverages included green lemonade, orange/pineapple/apple juice, plain orange juice, cranberry/grape juice (me), and coffee and hot chocolate!

Yes, we were all stuffed and Skip and I did not eat again until about 7:30 last evening, when we finished off my leftovers from Macaroni Grill!!  My sister had so much food left, that she sent us all home with "goody bags" so we will have "her breakfast" again this morning!!

It was so good to have family members together that had been somewhat estranged.   We decided that we will get together again, soon, and this summer swim days at my house and cello sister who also has a pool!!


Frankie,
I appreciate your trying to save so many threads.  If we have to, we will just start over again with the Garden Thread.  I still have all of my pictures in photobucket and some that Pepe and Mary have sent me, too.   We can always start DWTS and other FUN STUFF threads again.   I did save all of my birthday poems, and my own posts about vacations and Clay trips. 

Pepe,
Youngest sister is very creative and her tables looked beautiful and she was really good with preparing all this food.  Her house looked lovely and like it was out of a magazine.  My other sisters and I are bad about keeping too many things in our house, but youngest sister cleans out her closets and garage regularly, and her rooms have beautiful furnishings, too.
Have fun on your Walmart trip.  I know you are careful on the carts. 

Dudley,
Please take care of yourself.  You definitely don't want what your hubby has if it can get into your lungs. 

Carol,
Good to see you checking in, and hope your fingers are better soon.

Glory,
Your pastor sounds like a really fun guy!  Your food sounded delicious.  We did not have Soul Food Supper last evening because of Spring Break.  When the kids have Spring Break, it seems like everyone else does, also!

Sharon,
I'm glad to hear that cold is just about gone!  Next time, try the Zi con at the onset!  Pumpkin spice muffins sound good!

Betty,
I hope you are well rested and not trying to do too much while Corina is in Scotland.

JoAnn,
I have always heard to not plant before April 15;  Income tax day! :lol   I want to get some caladium bulks and maybe start them in pots in the house.

Pepe,
I could start plants in a greenhouse if I had one set up!   :lol   :para


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Terrific Thursday!  :hugs

Good Morning! I've gotten Lewis off to work, and have laundry going - I plan to get back on the computer this morning, and want to do some mini running around (post office, drug store) when I get ready to take a break. I don't know why I'm so paniced about this site having to die - I guess because it represents all of you to me. I know you will all be at the new site - just hope all goes well with that.

Sharon - I'm wondering what your record high will be - it is getting to 73 here!

Pepe - I'm still stewing over the ingredients in that salad dressing. The owner banks with my son - came over to the table to talk to us - wonder if my son would mind asking for a recipe!  :lol I can just see his face now if I ask him!

dudley - I think I missed you having surgery - are you healing well? Your husband is right - at least call your docotr.

Glory - you have a fun church. Does your Secret Sister enjoy the outdoors?If so, add garden hand tools, garden gloves, seeds, bird feeders (hummingbird and regular), hummingbird food and regular bird seeds, etc. to your basket. I love the Willow Tree figurines (Hallmark!!!  :clap ) Woody sent me one of a girl holding a dog when Peanut died.

JoAnn - your Grandfather was right - you can plant things on Good Friday (I've been telling the husband this for years, but he ignores me).

Prissy - what a fun party your Sister had! Looking forward to the photos.

Pepe - Lewis planted 3 bundles on onions yesterday. Forest Hill, Louisiana is a small town in central Louisiana that has miles after mile of greenhouses - people are wholesalers for florists and garden centers. Once a year they have a Festival, and open their businesses to the public. If we can get a sitter for the boys, we are going to go down and plant shop on Saturday - I wuld love for you to be with us!!! I will try to take photos if we go. We are determined to get some landscaping done out front this year.

Off to the ANN - I am happy to see that so many members (and non members) are able to save a few things. I'm not doing any more than anyone else. I know we all want to save as much as possible.

See 'ya later...............

Jeanne - I am having problems with the site sometimes - sometimes I cannot see what I am typing, and sometimes when I try to go back and correct errors, I can't - curser keeps jumping to the top of my post. I can't read what I said until it is posted, and even if I click on "Modify" I can't correct errors. That was going on during my first post this morning - now things are back to normal!!!  :bduh I have no way of knowing if it is a problem with this site or with my computer.

Hello, again!

Here is the link to the Hash Brown Casserole recipe my sister made for us yesterday.  She said her family did not like the onions in it when she made it before, so she left out the onions!  The onions were too strong in the casserole.

FRANKIE, 
       Thank        you for working so hard to save our precious memories.I wish
                  I were smart enough to help. It is so sad.

                         This is not my week.
               
                        Mon    I was sick
                         Tues. Bad news about Claymaniacs .  Dentist     apps.
                         Weds. Dermatologist called about  the biopsy. One was OK and the other
                           Prue cancerous, very close     to a previous one.   He will watch it.

                              Today I found out that two Banks were I have Cd's have gone bankrupt.
                             Luckily they were FDIC insured, just lost the interest.

                               Tomorrow the doctor wants me in for a carotid test.

                                 Next week cardiologist!!

                                Just lost a post.  OTHERWISE A GREAT WEEK!!


Corina called me from Scotland so that was good.

The boys and I got out for a while - they stayed at the office with their Father while I went to Walmart - they rode around with me the rest of the time  :lol

Prissy  and Pepe - I  bought two free-standing  wrought iron  flower pot hangers from  my favorite dollar store - I would take a photo if I had time! They are almost as tall as I am - each hanger only holds one flower pot. I will take a photo ASAP.

Prissy - your Sister must love to entertain great looking food!  :clap The recipe looks good, too.

dudley - Pepe mentioned shoulder surgery - I thought it was a recent one. Hope you won't have the Crud for long.  :hugg

Betty - I wish I could have come down and visited while Corina was away. I would have brought my (4) boxes of Clay DVDs and a bag of salmon filets!  :wink  I hope the rest of your week gets better! Shirl is sick - has been in bed the last 2 times I've called her. She has a kidney infection.

I want to work on the computer again or a while - I am in the process of adding the year to the ANN pages already moved - that has to be done before moving  the next year, since the dates are the same.

Have a great afternoon!

Prissy ~ I made the hashbrown recipe you put into the
recipe thread last week. It was on the back of the bag of
hashbrowns I bought.  :lol  I was having company so I
cubed some ham and put it in the casserole. It was good.

Glory ~ Little by little I am losing the numbness in my hand.
The doctor said he don't think I will loose all the numbness
though. I can feel the keys now some so it is easier to type
now. But I am slow at it. Actually the numbness went all
the way up to my elbow at first. I broke all 3 fingers in 4 places and they think that is what caused my hand to  go numb.I am happy it is getting better.  I have been reading back some
 and saw you got dark wicker furniture for your deck . It
is here at our Walmart too. Very nice. You will enjoy it this
summer.

A special "Thank's" to all of you working to save the sites.

sharon,

  I'm going alone this trip to Reno!  I "think" I have enough miles to get a free AA airline. So, the room and car will be the expense.  The ticket was just $50 and no handling fee I would have if I used Ticket Master. 
  The casino has already sent me my confirmation paper and I will pick the ticket up at the casino.  Since I went shopping at Stein Mart the other day, I have a brand new spring/summer jacket.  I'll get either white or navy pants and I'm set to go!

                         I hope the numbness soon goes away. Must be very difficult to type.

                                   Take care,
                                                        Betty :hugg

PRISSY, I was going to mention that greenhouse in my post yesterday and than I thought I had better not.  I am not a patient person and wanted Skip to have that greenhouse all set up for you by now.   :lol  He would hate me for a wife as I am a nagger when I want something done and can't do it myself.   :lol :para

      Frankie,
                    What a wonderful thought, all those Clay DVDs and salmon to boot.

                  The iron flower handers sound lovely, soon we can get out in the garden
                    again. Several things are starting to bloom.

                     Sophie decided to sleep in my bed this week, she usually is in Corina"s.   
                    My bed is quite small, so with her and kitty cat I have to find a small spot.
                    I planned on sleeping late but have to get up to let Sophie out

                             I"m going to try calling Shirl now.

FRANKIE, hope you get to go shopping to the greenhouses.  If you do don't forget to take your camera, wish I could go with you .  Oh and don't forget to take a trailer with you so you can buy everything you want to.  How was the steak dinner last night?  I am sure maybe if son told the restaurant owner how  you loved that dressing he just might give it to you.  Men loved to be praised you know.  !!!!!!!!!!!!   :lol

PRISSY, oh my what wonderful pictures.  You never disappoint  us you always provide some wonderful entertainment and food is my entertainment right now.   :bigsmile   Your sister put in a lot of work you can tell she wanted this to be extra special.  I am glad to hear everything turned out so good.  What a wonderful selection of food.  I am going to check out that hash brown casserole in a minute. 

DUDLEY, had a good day today.  Taking the morphine pain medication on a schedule is helping me alot .  The doctor was right it does not take the pain away but I am a lot more comfortable than I was and much happier.  I didn't wreck the scooter and drove pretty good thru the store.  Bought some cards I wanted and a few groceries.  Also went by the Appliance store we have here and bought a new stove a new GAS stove with convection oven I have been looking at them for a while  now and finally decided to get it.  I actually save money when I am sick, that pension adds up when I can not get out of the house to spend it so instead I got to buy something of real value.  Our power is out here so much I could never understand since there is natural gas to the house why in the world they put an electric stove in.  So many times the power has been out during the dinner hour or no coffee in the morning as there is no power.  So son is coming over on Saturday to help hubby run a gas line for the new stove.  I am excited about getting it.

                             not working so far. I told her to call the doctor tomorrow.

                          You were right to buy a gas stove, with natural gas you
                         will save money.

BETTY, sure hope you can get some afternoon naps in, you have had a busy and mentally busy week.  Take care of yourself while cornia is gone.  Don't like you being there by yourself for some reason.   :hugg

GLORY, yep don't plant flowers yet.  When we were in Tennessee we still got frost the last part of May a couple of years.  I never plant till Memorial Day.  Have you drawn pictures of what you want to plant, and where you want to plant it.  That should keep you busy.  Do you have a camera?  I need to see your deck with your new furniture and potted plants when you get it all done.  You can have some of the women from church over for a lunch now and than .   

FRANKIE, you find the neatest things at that Dollar store you have.  Will be waiting to see pictures.

 :wave :wave SHARON and BETTY, yep am anxious to get the convection oven as you can bake three cookie sheets of cookies at the same time.  We had this type of stove when we had the restaurant in Tennessee and I loved it but when we sold the place we sold the stove with it.  I don't bake that much anymore but it is wonderful type of oven when I do.  You are really cooking with circulating hot air and the meats and roasts turn out so wonderful.

Betty,
I really didn't have much pain with the broken fingers.
Now I know why. When it happened and I went to the doctor
I wasn't feeeling much pain. He said when I told him that, it bothered him. But he didn't say anything to me.  Last time I
was at the doctor he finanly told me that the numbness had started right away and got nummer as time went on.
I asked him why he didn't tell me that. He said
he was hoping he was wrong. He said I am lucky the feeling is coming back. So really I wasn't in any pain. My fingers were just sore a little. Thats all the pain I had. Now my hand tingles.
Kinda drives me crazy.  But the tingling is a good sign, so I
guess I won't complain.  :lol

Carol - hope your hand continues to improve.

JoAnn -  :purpbana :purpbana :purpbana for your ticket - but I worry about you going alone - wish Prissy could have gone with you. I know you will connect with other Clay fans when you get there, though. No one really ever goes to a Clay concert alone!

Betty - I can just imagine you, Sophie, and the cat all in one bed  :lol I will call Shirl later.

Pepe -  :clap :clap :clap for your new stove - you had a great day!  :clap If we go to the Festival, I will take my camera - it is supposed to rain Saturday, though. After our warm weather today, cold weather is supposed to come in by the weekend - Shreveport may even have snow!!!

Lewis is watching basketball tonight, and I will be here on the computer - see you all later................

Frankie,

  Thanks for worrying about me traveling alone! :hugg  Like you said, once I get to the casino, I won't be alone with all the other crazy Clay fans!  This will only be my 2nd "all by myself" trip in my entire life.  A few years ago, I couldn't get anyone to travel to the island of Kauai and so, me, myself and I went and we did fine for the 11 days we  :lmao were there.
  I think that I'll just go up on Friday and return on Sunday to make it a quick but nice 3 day weekend. I could care less about the casino, maybe a few penny slots would be fun.  If the tourist sites are directly around the casino, then I might go see a few. Haven't decided to get a rental car or just rely on a shuttle service.  I know in Las Vegas, you just go up to a window at the airport and buy a round trip shuttle ticket.

                   Don"t worry about me being alone. I lived alone for 15 years after

                   for 15months when he was in  the airforce. I"m a tough old bird!!!

Good Evening!

I went to my doctor's office to have my blood pressure checked.  The nurse at our church has been concerned that it is high when she checks.  It was 137 over 74, so not nearly as high at the doctor's office.  My doctor's nurse told me to go back on my previous BP prescription that has a diuretic in it.  :para  I also made an appointment for a physical exam in April.   :icon_eek:

Then I stopped at Market Street Grocery and bought a pork tenderloin;  I have a recipe I want to try.  Then a stop at my bank for some cash!


When I came home, our friend who works here during the week and lives in East Texas stopped by before he started home for his weekend.  Today is his birthday and he is 66.  His birthday is three days after the dogs and he is 60 years older than them.  This will help me keep up with how old the dogs always are;  the second digit of his age! :thumb

Skip wanted to get out so we went for a drive;  so nice to have the daylight so much later now.  We stopped at Chapp's for a burger and fries.  I tried to be good and said no mayo, just mustard on both our burgers.  :lol

I'm glad you all enjoyed the St. Patrick's brunch food pictures.  Delicious meal and I still have some leftovers here! :lol   The hash brown casserole is scrumptious and the recipe is printed out in the Recipe Swap thread.  Remember, that youngest sister did not like onions in it, so it's your choice.

JoAnn did ask me if I was interested in going to Reno for the concert, but I really am not.  I would like to see Clay perform, but I would rather go somewhere a little closer.  Our yard is so "demanding" in the summer that I really hate to travel then.  Skip and I will go to Branson, possibly in April, and at some point down to Houston to see my niece and Taylor and the new great nephew!!



Pepe,
The new stove sounds wonderful!  I know you will enjoy baking in it.  If we ever replace our oven, I am thinking of a convection/regular oven combination.  The food was delicious.  Youngest sister is a great hostess and really good at preparing spectacular spreads!!  She is on her Spring Break from teaching Kindergarten and left today to join her husband in New York.  (He travels a lot on business.)  She will return on Sunday.
I have never had sausage gravy with biscuits, and now I am a fan!!  Absolutely delicious and probably fattening!  :lol
Skip is actually talking about putting up the green house soon!  :shock   We shall just wait and see!   :icon_rolleyes:

Sharon,
I believe youngest sister put green food coloring in the eggs when she was mixing them up;  the same for the sausage/egg casserole.  The hash brown casserole was delicious. 

Betty,
I lived alone for about four years after my first marriage ended and before I met Skip.  I learned to be really independent being on my own.   Sorry to hear that Shirl is not feeling well.

Frankie,
Sounds like a good buy at the Dollar Store.  I am always finding some neat things at the Dollar Tree or Big Lots.


I hope you all have a restful evening!  :hugs

JoAnn - I will worry about you anyway - will give me something to do!  :lol :wink

Betty and JoAnn and anyone else considering going to Reno - I jus talked to Shirl - she is so sick, but wonders if she should go to Reno. She called the casino, too, and they told her that there are still good seats left. They also said she should call back in the next day or so if she wants one of them! Clay is not a sell out yet, but they think he might sell out. I told Shirl to buy a ticket and sell it later, but she said hers would be a wheelchair seat, and she might not be able to sell it. I think she would plan to go in a minute if she was not feeling so sick.

Betty - here is a  :hugg for the tough old bird!  :lmao

Just gave the boys baths, so now of course I need one, too. They played outside with their Daddy in the garden all evening and came in looking like mud balls. Going to say Good Night to the OCD now, even though I may be on site later working. Sweet Dreams, everyone!!!

 :wave Prissy - We are here at the same time! You had a great evening - I love times like that - just getting out and catching a quick hambuger for supper. I feel the same way about Clay - glad everyone else is getting to see him, but right now I want to spend money on my yard and on buying some new clothes.

FRANKIE and PRISSY, if my health wasn't so bad I would have maybe thought about going to Reno but spent all that money on a new stove, I will be content in listening to Clay's new CD soon.  FRANKIE we are supposed to go back to winter weather th is weekend also.  Today another day of sunshine and 60 degree temps and tomorrow rain/snow and in the 30's.  That is when hubby and son will be crawling  under the house running a gas line for my new stove.

BETTY, you are so funny.   You are a tough old bird huh?  Well I guess I am to than.  I keep bouncing right back and am sure I will live a lot longer than so many times I think I will.   Any more tests coming  up for the Lupus?????? 

JOANN, I also will be worrying about you going by yourself.  Keep your doors locked and don't talk to strangers!!!!!  :icon_rolleyes: 

DUDLEY, I don't think I am crazy yet, please tell me you had shoulder surgery a while ago.  Have to condition my hair or try to.  It is so dry and brittle a combination I think of all the pills I take.

GLORY, what is up with you today?  Any plans for the weekend?  My weekends are just like weekdays nothing special, not like when I worked and had tons to do on the weekends. 

PRISSY I can't wait to see that greenhouse go up!!!!  What fun you could have been growing your plants for your pots .  sounds like a trip to Many to Frankie's house for some ferns for the woods nd greenhouse would be fun also.

Good Morning Everyone!



Pepe--Thank you :hugg I'll be fine.  I'll bring my heavy boot and knock anyone in the head that gives me trouble! :lmao

Sharon--Thanks for the coffee.  I've decided to stop  drinking  ANY diet sodas from Thursday===Sunday evening.  Hoping this will help on Monday's scales! :bigsmile  I haven't had a diet drink  since Wednesday and don't even miss them and I LOVE diet cherry 7 UP! 
   
   I'm loading up on oranges this week.  I seem to not do too well when I take vitamins, stomach bloats after a few days and get stopped up.  So, oranges are my way of getting vitamin C in me.  I don't like orange  juice because I can "taste" the sugar in it.  We've been getting a bag of navel oranges from Sam's Club.  They are wonderful.

  HOPEFULLY I GET THE STITCHES OUT THIS MORNING!!!!!! MY APPOINTMENT IS AT 10:30.  I'M  BRINGING MY LEFT SHOE, JUST IN CASE! :bigsmile  HOPE THAT IF I DO HAVE TO KEEP A PROTECTIVE SHOE ON, IT WILL NOT BE THE DREADED BOOT! :bigsmile

Good Morning!

Meals on Wheels and some of our usual errands today.  I am not buying bread from the bread store any more because I have to throw it out so soon.  We do like the Hostess Honey Nut cereal, and the Hostess bread store is the only place we have found it.  Bread, fruit, milk, eggs, etc. from Braum's Ice Cream store.

Pepe,
I am hoping :cross the Green House will be up before it starts getting really hot.  It sounds like you are feeling better;  not as much pain.  That is good to hear!

Frankie,
Skip and I feel like as long as we have our health, we want to keep enjoying life; and taking time just to take a drive or go to a museum or a botanic gardens.  After all, we are retired and have a lot of time to do these things.  Of course, we are using some of our time to help others, too!

Sharon,
Thanks for the breakfast!  We actually still have some leftovers from youngest sister's St. Patrick's Day brunch, so will finish them off this morning!  :thumb

Glory,
It is good we have the temporary site to pop over to when this site is down or if we lose this one.  It looks like many have stepped in to save lots of threads that we have here.

JoAnn,
I do hope you get the stitches out and don't have to wear the boot anymore.  Last evening, Skip's foot ached a little bit (where he had the bunion surgery), but when he went to bed and this morning, no pain at all.


Hello to all checking in and/or reading and have a Fabulous Friday!  :hugs

Good Morning!

Pepe - it is going to be 74 degrees today - rain tomorrow (I hope Kaitlyn can have her soccer game before the rains get here), then cold on Sunday - not sure how cold. Looks like our family in Memphis may be dealing with some more snow. I wish Prissy could make it here someday - but I think it is a lot cheaper for her to just buy plants than to drive 5 hours each way to get free plants!  :lol I truly wish someone would come by and take half of what is in the greenhouses.

Sharon -  :hugg I read about you losing your uncle - didn't understand if he was your Dad's brother, or your Mom's brother. I am sorry for your loss. I had some wonderful aunts and uncles (My Dad was one of 13 children). There were times in my childhood that I really needed their love and support. Please give my sympathy to your family, too.

Prissy - there was a group from TCU on the Today Show (standing outside on the Plaza with signs). They made some sort of hand sign that was supposed to be a horned toad - I thought of you!  :bigsmile We always keep bread, rolls, buns, etc. in a drawer in the refrigerator - especially in summer. With just the two of us, it ruins if we don't.

JoAnn - Good Luck at your doctor's appointment - hope the boot is gone for good!
I meant to mention that Walmart is having some good sales. All of their long sleeved t-shirts are on clearance - for $3! I am wearing one today. I also found Kaitlyn the cutest soccer shirt - it has soccer balls on it, and says "This Girl's Got Game".

I'm going to be here on the computer most of the day - plan to work an hour here, then take an hour off (my eyes start to cross after an hour and I need a break). May bake a cake for my friend's son (I will call her first to see how he is doing).

PRISSY, you mentioned before about never having biscuits and gravy .  They are my favorite.  Whenever I came home to stay and visit with my mom she would ask me what I wanted for supper and I would say biscuits and gravy mom and maybe your famous chcolate pie.  My favorite.  If you have a Mcdonalds near you and are out for breakfast they serve great biscuits and gravy  too along with the Cracker Barrell and most other restaurants.

FRANKIE, I go thru a lot of bread to that goes stale on me but my squirrels love bread so much that we give it to them every few days along with their peanuts, corn and sunflower seeds.  We are now putting oranges on the trees for the woodpeckers and the squirrels have developed a taste for them to.  Originally the oranges on the trees were for the Baltimore Oriols that come home in the spring but everyone else loves them too it seems.

SHARON, such a lovely card I got from you today. Love getting cards and the wonderful thoughts behind them.  Like I said before you have had enough sadness in your family lately.  The last two  years has been very hard for you and your family .

    I've been cleared to "alternate" with the boot and good shoe for the next two weeks.  If I have a shoe on, I will need to wear the mule brace or the ace bandage to keep the the  foot compressed.  NO CRUTCHES OR WALKER EITHER. 
   I'VE BEEN CLEARED TO SWIM.  YEAH! :bigsmile  I CAN ALSO GO TO THE GYM AND EXERCISE ONLY SITTING DOWN!  NO STANDING OR LEG EXERCISING YET.

   Now I can take a bath!  I still have my foot marked "7 MT" meaning the bone they removed.  I also need to wiggle, press, bend my left foot at least 3 times a day.  I go back to see the progress on March 31!

I'm going to get up from the computer for a while and go outside, since this is the last warm, sunny day we will have for a while.

JoAnn -  :clap :clap that your foot is healing well - hope it heals completely soon.

Pepe - We enjoy feeding the birds, too - I will be gald to see the hummingbirds back, but hope they stay South until it is warm for good here.

Jan - I love bargain shopping - I will believe you are sending me photos when I see them!!!  :lol :lol I would like to sve the Pet Thread and the Magazine Thread, but I do not know if I will get to them - there are 50 more pages of the ANN to do - and there are 25 days on each page!!!! I just finished 2005, and will start 2006 this afternoon, but my arm is numb from clicking, and I am going outside for a while - just to sit in the swing and watch the ducks. Everyone is doing as much as they can -maybe it will all get saved.

Glory - there is so much to do to our yard - I would like for it to look nice again.

Have a great afternoon, everyone!

Good Afternoon!

We are having that same gorgeous weather many of you are having.  It is supposed to be in the mid 70's but rain tonight and tomorrow and then a temperature drop!! :shock

After our Meals on Wheels deliveries, Skip and I ran several errands:  Home Depot, Lowe's, and Costco.  Then we stopped at the Hot Chocolates shop and yes, we bought a big chocolate brownie that we are going to only eat a small bit at a time! :thumb  A stop at Tom Thumb for Ocean Spray Cranberry/Grape juice (on sale!), gas in the van and then home!  (Pepe, we forgot to go to Braum's!!)

We ordered online several batches of caldium bulbs and found some that are sun tolerant, and some that are not so tall that will be good in some of my planter boxes! 

I am going to go out and sit in the swing for a while and let the dogs run around in the back yard.  Usually we keep them between the two gates and in the driveway area.  The very back of our lot is not totally fenced, and they could get out if they went that far back!


Jan,
Our dogs are nice looking and really fairly well behaved!  Because they were from the same litter, they really look like twins except for their different coloring;  Shadow, a tricolor and Sandy, a sable!!   I just love bargains and it looks like you have found some good ones!

Pepe,
I never thought I would like biscuits and gravy, so this is a "new food" for me!!  :lol   Now, I think I may be addicted to it.  Especially, the sausage gravy with biscuits. 
Skip is still talking about having his son help him and getting a start on the greenhouse.  :cross

Frankie,
When I mentioned you have lots of extra plants, Skip said, "When are we leaving?"  I still want to see your place and now that Jennie is doing so much better, I'm hoping that the four of us:  JoAnn, Jennie, Skip and I can make this trip and also go to Nachitoches, too!  We are expecting your weather so need to see what needs to be done outside this afternoon.

JoAnn,
Good news about your foot!  No more crutches or walker and less time with the boot!! :clap


I thought that the Pet Thread had been saved, but I don't see it on the list Michelle posted.   Here is a link to:

MICHELLE'S LIST OF SAVED THREADS (http://www.claymaniacs.com/forums/index.php/topic,16138.0.html)

       Frankie,
                                Tweet! Tweet! Thank you.

                         Got back from my carotid ultrasound, won"t know the results
                         until I see my cardilogist on the 30th.

                                Shirl sounded so sick and said she is feeling pretty bad.
                            I hope she calls the doctor today.been having this problem for a while.
                   
                                  More concerts are popping up so I hope she will be well enough to
                                   get to one of them.

                                       I really was"nt thinking of going to Reno, more inclined to try for

                                 the Biltmore. Hoping he comes closer. I"ll see if Corina is interested

                                   in any of them.

                                            I think you and all the other people trying to save our stuff deserve
                                       medals!!!


                                                             Off to cook my SALMON!!!

I'm going to have supper cooked around 5:30 - Lewis declared the weekend started around 4, and he is out in the garden  :lol

Pepe - I picked a plastic grocery bag full of broccoli - having some for supper! I noticed the orange and grapefruit trees are full of ripe fruit - I will go take a photo for you.

Glory -  :hugg I don't know what to say about you moving - just really think before you do anything. You would miss the grandchildren a lot if you moved, but you need to be treated with respect, and you need to be completely happy.  :soapbox

Prissy - I would love for all of you to come this Spring or Summer.  :bouncy

Have a great evening - see y'all later!

GLORY,  :hugg it is harder living near your kids after  you have lived away from them for a long time.  They are not  used to being of use to their mom and sounds like they pretty much think of themselves, I have a few like that.  Just be nice if they  could come over and say thought I would stop and have some tea with you mom.  They know your phone number when they need a babysitter or money.    You know you always have my sympathy as far as your kids are concerned.  I am sure Holly's moods are up and down with this pregnacy.  She was so blessed with Emily and Miller maybe she is not coping to well right now.  I remember when she was pregnant the first time, she had some  hard times there for awhile.

FRANKIE, oh my fresh broccoli!!!!!!  Nothing better!!!  Wished Lewis wouldn't plant such  a huge garden this year if  you are going to be landscaping that huge yard also.  Do you have any ideas on your landscaping?  Do you have any Camilla's?  Of course you could fill in space by planting more gardenias or they have azaleas that bloom in the spring and late summer now. I have never had grapefruit or oranges that have ripened from the tree.  I can't even imagine how wonderful they must taste.

PRISSY, yep split those biscuits open on your plate and load it down with gravy.  Yummmmmmmmmm!!!!  Of course the sausage gravy is best!!!  Love a nice cold glass of milk with it too.  Oh my  you forgot ice cream at Braums.  do they make their own butter also? We are butter freaks in this house.

Ah!  I just finished my "first" real bath/shower in two weeks!  I decided to use Mom's bathroom instead of mine.  She has put a shower/bath chair inside her bathtub.  I sat on it, eased my foot into warm water and messaged part of it with some mild soap then ended up washing my hair with the shower in the tub.  It felt so good to take a complete shower.  I won't use my shower for awhile, it still feels good to sit on that chair just in case my foot gives way.

   I was such a baby this morning with the stitch removal.  It doesn't hurt at all now.  I wore the stretch mule brace all day and the doctor told me that I didn't need to wear anything on it at night.  I am going to put the same  type of Nexcare pad on it tonight though.  Just in case it bleeds, don't want the sheets to get ruined.  I had bled today when I removed the pad they put on.
    I forgot to ask how many stitches because I was jerking too much due to the stinging to ask.  All I know is the incision  is about 3" long.  The foot is still swollen but not half as much as it was last week.  I still have "half" the mark left by the doctor.  I'm afraid to rub too hard just yet.  The soft soap took a lot off but I can still see a trace of the code he marked.

Good Morning Everyone!

Sharon--Thanks for the hot coffee!  It is rainy and cold this morning.  It might even snow tonight!  What a lovely first day of spring! :bang


  I just returned from taking Mom to the beauty shop.  I have the mule brace on and "gently" put my foot into my tennis shoe.  So far, so good!  I need gas, so I'm headed to Sam's Club.  I wouldn't go but since possible snow is forecasted for tonight, I better get today.  The sooner I go, the sooner I can relax in our nice warm house and remove the shoe.
Have a great day everyone.

JoAnn - nothing makes you feel better than a nice warm bath/shower.

Glory -  :hugg

Sharon - dounts for breakfast!  :purpbana

I'm off to run a couple of errands around town, then I will get back home and get to work. I want to save some more Threads, plus working on my Easter decorations - I have not gotten that done this week as planned.

This will probably be the only thread I get to today.  Am taking my nebulizer and trying to breath as I am so congested and throwing up so sick to my stomach.  My stomach started really hurting a couple of days ago when I started on the morphine.  It really helps but have decided I am not able to take it.  That is what I was taking when I went into the hospital at Saginaw last fall.  I think that caused the problems of vomiting.

                    morphine but sometimes the medicine can make you feel so much worse.

                             Hope you soon feel better.

                            I bet that shower felt wonderfull, glad you got the boot
                            off.After my surgery we put a plastic chair in the shower
                             and that worked well.


              Frankie,
       

                             I imagine you were glad of a little break from saving all the threads.

                                         That must be very tedious.

                             Co rina comes home tomorrow night, I shall be glad to see her.Not
                             feeling well today.

                                   Going to try calling Shirl  now.

 :hugg Betty - I am glad to see you checking in. I have been saving threads a little at a time today - going to start on 2007 next. It has started to rain here, and we are enjoying an afternoon indoors - just made a pot of coffee, and have been working on putting the grandchildre Easter baskets together. Hope Shirl is feeling better today. I know you will be happy to see Corina - hope she has had a fun vacation.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

  I found the new temp. site.  Thanks Michael!   It has been a long day here.  It's very cold, windy and wet.  Sammy woke me up at 3:30 this morning.  I "thought" he needed out but quickly heard the wind and rain storm and realized that was "scaring" him.  I put him up in the bed and  he was asleep in no time until the alarm went off at 7:00!

   I hate to hear that Pepe is sick today.  She and my Mom are so much alike.  Mom is having an extremely  hard day today too.  She aches from toe to head and can not get warm.  We have the drapes closed and the heat :doh set on 75!  She is also out of morphine but we don't want to go begging to "Dr. Doom",she is trying to use some of my pain medicine until we see the new doctor.  She is going to ask her home care nurse Tuesday is he can get her scheduled earlier then the appointment or perhaps get a prescription started before her appointment.

Betty---Yes, the shower felt so good.  I usually take two showers a day and for the last two weeks, when I couldn't, it drove me nuts.  The shower chair did help.  I sit on it and just let the hot water run down the old back.  In my shower, I have a large rain head but it is set up high and if wouldn't feel as good as the old shower head in Mom's bathroom.  It is much stronger, which I like better.

Frankie---I just made us a pot of coffee and I'm on my second cup!  I hope you take a photo of the Easter baskets.  I just wish that we had someone to make some for around here.

      Frankie,
                     I called Shirl and she is feeling much better. She went down to dinner
                       and had something to eat.
                             
                               Guess what she is planning now??? I pray all goes well for her.
                        she wants to go so much.

                     I"m feeling a lot better now, had a little scare through the night.  Had the
                      same symtoms as when I had my heart attack. Could"nt go to the ER
                      and leave the animals. Had them through the day but  they are fading now.

                        Must be all the Clay excitement!!

BETTY,  you are scaring me to death.  I knew I didn't like you there by yourself.   Do you have a neighbor  you can call in case of emergency, and that was probably an emergency last night.  I have no one here either, people don't even speak to you much less offer their phone number to you in case of need.  Have you just laid around today ?  What kind of symptoms do you have?  Will be glad when Corina gets home tonight and make s ure you tell her how you are feeling.



Title: Re: OCD Support Group - Session 137
Post by: Pepe on March 20, 2010, 04:35:23 PM
FRANKIE, I am feeling some better.  My stomach is still sore, and I put my self on 20mg of steriods so I could breath and keep me out of the Emergency Room until Monday when I can call my doctor.  I have just about everything the hospital has to take care of myself until I can get to the doctor.  I am tired of emergency rooms.  That rain and that pot of coffee sounds so good.  I have slept most of the day while hubby and my son put in the electrical plug and a gas line for my new stove.  It is all hooked up now, took the whole day to do it.  Thank goodness my son was able to come and help his dad.

JOANN, so sorry Jennie was sick also.  It is funny you don't feel good and you take medicine to make you feel better than that makes you sicker than ever.  I really felt much better the past couple of days and started feeling sick to my stomach yesterday and was wondering about the morphine, so we will see what the doctor says next.  Has the morphine ever made Jennie sick to her stomach?

Now I'm worred about Pepe, Jennie, and Betty  :hugg :hugg :hugg - I am really praying for all 3 of you - I am going to have to do all of you like I once did my children - I told them they were NOT ALLOWED to be sick  :naughty (it worked on them!!!)   

Betty - I just knew Reno would call Shirl's name - she hasn't called to tell me she decided to go, probably because she knows I hate for her to travel alone!  :lol She is one brave soul - and she has had some great Clay experiences because traveling alone does not bother her. I will be very happy to hear that Corina is home. If you start to hurt again before she gets home, please call a neighbor or an ambulance. One of my best friends here had major heart damage when she had her heart attack because she hurt all day and would not call anyone - she waited for her husband to get home from work. I know a neighbor or a friend would be gald to step in to watch the animals.

Good Evening!

Skip and I have been on a mission to declutter some areas of our house.  He has been working on his office and I have been working on an area of the TV cabinet in the dining room.  He is making more progress than I am.  I have been going through years of Christmas cards, and feeling nostalgic for some of the people who are now gone. 

It snowed for a short while this evening;  did not stick.  We had our Christmas snow, our Valentine's snow, and now, I will call this our St. Patrick's snow, because it is just a few days after St. Patrick's Day.

I am cooking a pork tenderloin and new potatoes for dinner.  The recipe called for sweet potatoes, but it my mind I thought it said new potatoes!  :doh   I used the recipe for roasted potatoes with the Lipton onion soup mix and olive oil.  I marinated the pork tenderloin in soy sauce and seasoned it with a little salt and pepper.  Before it is ready, I will pour some Raspberry Chipotle sauce on it!   :bigsmile

Sharon,
Yes, I think I have become addicted to sausage gravy and biscuits.  We finished off the last of it from youngest sister's brunch on Wednesday!  At Braum's yesterday evening, I noticed you could buy sausage gravy in a box!  I was tempted!! :lol

Pepe,
I am sorry to hear you have not had a good day and stomach problems from morphine  (Morphine makes me itch!)  I hope you are better this evening.  Exciting that your oven is all set up for you!

Betty,
I hope you have a better night.  I am concerned about you being alone, too.  I'm glad Corina will be returning tomorrow.

Frankie,
You had today the weather we had yesterday!  I don't know if snow and rain is heading your way or not.  We are expecting to get down to 34 and freezing in some areas.  I hope the plants make it OK.

I did get registered;  had to do it twice at the new test site.  Michael is very good to us to provide a place for us when this one disappears!

I hope you all have a restful night!  :hugs

Did someone mention Peeps??   Here is a picture of the Peeps cupcakes I made last year for our Sunday School brunch!!

Betty--- :hugg Goodness, please "listen" to your body and go get checked out as soon as possible. 

  Betty---If Shirl is going to Reno and hasn't got a ticket yet, tell her to call the Casino directly on their 800 #.  I was able to get row 7 4 hours after the tickets became available on ticket master.  That site is a joke and I just called the casino.  People who called them earlier got even better tickets by calling them instead of ticket master.

Prissy - what a precious photo of your Neice with her dog - is that Taylor??? It is supposed to get really cold here tonight - but I don't think the snow will get down this far. We started cleaning after the rain came today. I sent Lewis to his closet   :lol (he has the walk in closet he has wanted all of our maried life and it was a mess! - Hi Fault!) and I cleaned out my "MaMaw" closet as I was getting the Easter basket things out. I have a bad habit of buying toys on Clearance and then losing them  :lmao I found several things to give to one of our Agents, who still has very young grandchildren.

I hope Meesa is still on her honeymoon and did not see the Kansas game today!!! They lost - and they were predicted to become the NCAA Chamnpions this year.

I'm going to take a break from the site and go watch the game that is on - we are hoping that Kentucky will lose (sorry Glory). Their present Coach walked out on Memphis this past year, and took several players with him - we are not happy. Memphis did not even make the Tournament. (Although they are playing in the NIT).

I just saw you post, Sharon - have a Good Night.  Hope the extra rest will make you feel well again. I just hope I can get the things I am saving back onto the new site!!!  :para

JoAnn - Shirl has already called the casino - did that the first day. They still have good tickets available!

Good Morning Everyone,

  Sharon--Thanks for the coffee, needed it. Mom has been up all night hurting so bad with a fibermyalgia attack.  Nothing we have in the house is helping , not even her sleeping pill.  She is out of her Morphine and she's tried my pain pills I got for my foot, no luck.
   To top of that, the snow stuck, not much thank goodness.  This makes her body ache more.  All I can do is "suggest" things that she has already tried.  If she can sleep, that will help.  She hasn't had any sleep more then a few minutes at a time throughout the night.  I"m hoping that she can relax.  I went ahead and  stayed up for good at 6 this morning.  We put the heat on 75o :doh and her electric blanket up and she is still cold.   Once  she has reached this level of aching , there is not much she can do.  Just has to ride it out.  Sleep is recommended but can't sleep.

Like Prissy said yesterday, we've had snow on the last 3 holidays this past few months.  The flakes started late yesterday and picked up after dark last night.  Some of our shrubs are covered this morning and the grass is lightly covered.  Not on the drive or walks though.  The temps are heading, hopefully, back up today or tomorrow.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY MY GREAT GRANDFATHER TOLD THE FAMILY NEVER TO PLANT UNTIL AFTER GOOD FRIDAY.  WE STILL TAKE HIS SUGGESTION VERY SERIOUS.  Friday, when we stopped to get fertilizer, people were stalking up on "beautiful" plants because the weather was so nice.  Now, today, snow!  Wonder how beautiful those poor little plants are today.

JOANN, so sorry to hear that Jennie couldn't sleep last night.  Wished I was close by she could borrow a couple of my pills, I am not taking them anymore till I talk to my doctor.  didn't take any yesterday so  I bet that is what was making me sick, the morphine.  I will pray Jennie will be able to sleep a little today.
Wished she could just call into Dr. Doom's office and have them call in a prescription for her and not have to go in to see him.

FRANKIE, sounds wonderful how you can get Lewis to clean his closet.  I have been trying that with my hubby and he refuses to cooperate.  I even try to shame him telling him some poor people could be wearing those almost new clothes, nothing helps.

PRISSY, I have been going thru  some of my things in the office as I sit here but I don't seem to be accomplishing much.  It is hard to throw some things away .  So many memories but than I think they are only memoires to me, hate to have my children have to deal with all of this.  I think I will go and cook myself an egg, my stove almost looks intimidating to me  :lol it looks bigger than my other one, well I guess it is as it has five burners on it.  Haven't cooked on a gas stove for like 30 years, wish me luck!!!!!!!!!!

BETTY, come and check in so we know you are okay.

HER, where are you?  Is something wrong?

I was just over at Critical Mass and Gwenn posted a website for a newspaper review of Clay.  Please go over and read it, such a wonderful review finally!!!!!!!!

Good Morning! It is very cold here, and the wind is howling. It is snowing in Shreveport, but they do not think there will be accumulation.

JoAnn - I'm sorry Jennie is not feeling well - hope she gets some sleep. Our plant places here are full of plants - but we noticed yesterday that they were moving plants indoors for last night. I also noticed that door to our big greenhouse blew open last night  :para - but it is cloudy - hope that kept the temperature high enough so that most things will be O.K.

Sharon - I am sitting here having my coffee - cyber cofee and real coffee!!!  :coffee :coffeepot

Pepe - enjoy that new stove! We bought the shelving system for Lewis' closet and he installed it - most shelves are too high for me to reach - he even has a small bench in there to sit on when he changes shoes. He has a habit of throwing everything on that bench - he had to get in there yesterday and put things in order. He even has sports equipent in there - golf clubs and gun cabinet (locked) included. There ws no way I was going to strighten all of that out!  :lol I told him I went in there Friday when I was cleaning floors - but I just opened the door and turned around and left!

I agree with Pepe - Jayne - where are you?

Betty - hope you check in early today. Did you see that Shirl came on site last night and saved the Magazine Thread???   :clap She is feeling much better, and is so happy to be going to Reno. I hope she and JoAnn get to meet each other. I am so happy she is taking the train.

Happy Sunday, everyone !

GOOD MORNING!

I stayed up late last night and moved the Color Chart and all of the Birthday Poems to the new site.  I put them in FUN STUFF, but not really sure if the Birthday Poems should be there or in the archives!  :dunno

I looked out this morning and our vans are covered with snow and there is a light layer of snow on the grass and the benches;  nothing like the snow around Valentine's Day.  It is 30 degrees right now, so we are below freezing.  I don't think we will go to Sunday School;  not sure about the roads! 

Skip did a great job on his office, and he has lots of stuff to give away, throw away, and go out in the recycling!  He is like the Hare and I am like the Tortoise.  He moves quickly getting things done, and I take a lot of time;  stop too often to read things!!

I imagine we will continue our quest to make stuff "disappear" in our house, today! :wink


JoAnn,
I hate to hear that Jennie is suffering so.  Is there something over the counter that would help?  Do you think she needs to go to the ER?

Sharon,
I'm glad you liked my Peeps and the picture of my great niece.  She is so cute.

Frankie,
That is not Taylor;  she is still in Houston.  That is Taylor's cousin and the dog belongs to Youngest Sister. 

Pepe,
I think you will enjoy your stove.  I can hardly get more than one thing in my stove at a time.  When I put in the new potatoes, the pork dish with the pork tenderloin would not fit beside it, so I had to put it on the rack below and really too close to the burner.  The food turned out fine, however, and we will have leftovers today! :thumb


Betty, Dudley, Jayne, Lolita...hope you all will check in!

Hello to all checking in/and or reading and have a Super Sunday!  :hugs   Stay warm!  :cold

       Frankie, Prissy and Pepe,
         
                                              Just checking in, thanks!

                        Glad to say my jaw is not hurting as much today,
 though I do have a bad headache.

             It"s very strange but when I had heart attack before I did"nt have any chest pains
             just jaw pain, nausea and sweating.The doctor"s kept telling me not to be stoic about
               the pain and could"nt believe I did"nt have any....just felt weird.I had a triple by pass
             and that was ten years ago.
 
                   Corina will be home tonight but if I still have problems I will call her friend and go to
 
                  the ER.My best friend is a love but does"nt driveor she would be here.



                                                            Betty

           Frankie,
                              I did"nt see Shirl"s post last night. She said it is a 7 hour train jpurney to
                     Reno and she has to change once. The train is set up for wheelchairs and there is a shuttle
                     to the hotel.I think it is much better than flying.

                                I"m so happy for her...now she has something to look forward to.
 
                                   Going to lie down now.

                                                           Betty

Good Morning #2 :lmao


 The sun is out and hopefully it will help melt the  snow.  Mom  still feels bad but she has been able to sleep a wee bit this morning.  I'm just staying away from her bedroom and being very quiet.  I did put Sammy up on her bed for "comfort!"  He knows when she doesn't feel good and curls up right by her and comforts her.
   I just sort of "peek" in on her.  It's now 10:00 and around 8:30, she did  say that she has been able to catch a couple of winks.  She needs to get up and take a nebulizer treatment and take her morning pills, so I think I'll encourage that.
   I just went and caught up on my current 21010 tax records.  I START out with good records but about March, I BEGIN TO FADE OUT ON RECORD KEEPING.  I'm putting everything not only in a file but on a spread sheet on my computer desk top.  I'l see how many months I can keep it up to date this year! :lmao

I hope I can meet up with Shirl in Reno.  That will be great being able to meet her.  People on the OFC are already talking about meeting up with each other, so it looks like everyone will be able to meet new Clay friends.

CAROL, glad you got all registered on the new site. 

FRANKIE and PRISSY Wished I could help save some of the threads but my compuer is 12  years old and has very low memory.  I am waiting for it to fade as my monitor doesn't have much color anymore and it takes ten minutes to load a page.

PRISSY I used to be fast with everything I did but those days have passed I guess.  Going to go fix some dinner.  Steak that hubby will grill outside and angel hair pasta with a marinera sauce and hot rolls.  It is cold but sunny here today.  Have laid around most of the day. 

BETTY, I am still concerned and scared for you.  YOu don't sound real encouraging to me.  I suggest you call Cornia's friend to take you to the ER to get checked out.  The babies will be okay as Cornia will be home tonight.  Just make sure they have food and water and leave lights on for them.

JOANN, how wonderful if you get to meet and see SHIRL.  I am so happy you are going to Reno and there will be other Clayfans to meet  up with and eat with.  Glad Sammy is keeping Jennie company.  Allie does that with me, she lays on my bed or on my chest or on my neck and growls if anyone dares comes into my room.  She is a big guard dog that 4 lb yorkie is.  Now Pepe who I have had for 15 years could care less what I am doing in bed all the time, he sticks close to his papa.  Even has to go to the bathroom with him.

DUDLEY got your email and sent you one back.  Sorry you had a bad day but glad you are getting over that cold.  Maybe this will be your last rainy cold day.

The fruit trees are in beautiful bloom, robins are hopping around the back yard looking for worms, and it is SNOWING!!!!! I would take a photo if I thought the snow would show up! It probably will not stick (It might - it is so cold out there!) but it looks so funny coming down this time of year.

Pepe - I just frosted a German chocolate cake - coconut/pecan frosting, of course. No need t punish the husband just because I am trying to lose weight. I'm also making a pot of coffee - come on down! Love those Yorkies - I think Tuff would attack a bear. Both of the boys look awful - their groomer broke her ankle - don't know whether to try a new groomer, or just wait.

JoAnn - I always say I am going to keep the ledger up to date, too - but I get behind sometimes.

Carol -  :clap for getting on the new site.

Prissy - I am going to start moving some things over to the new site after Michelle gets a couple of questions answered - I'm trying to avoid having to post more than once!

Glory - a nap sounds wonderful!

Back to the ANN - Philly is helping - we are meeting in the middle! Less than 20 pages left!  :clap

Good Afternoon Everyone,


   Mom  has taken 2 of my pain pills and it helped a "wee" bit.  It is the same type and dosage they gave her several years ago but didn't work.  We both "looked" at my bottle and her old one to make sure.  We did find out that both bottles said that you may take 2 at one time! Wish we had read that  before not only for Mom's sake but mine during the week my foot hurt! :bang
   Mom just walked into the office.  She is wrapped up in a white robe that Skip and Prissy bought her from an Air Force Base when  we all went to the Grand Canyon together.
   This is a nice, thick winter robe but she has worn it all day.  She is trying to walk around a little bit every so often to help exercise her legs.  Hopefully she will feel better tomorrow.  In a couple of hours, she will be able to take 2 more of my pain pills.   I get one more refill before 9-30-10, so I'm going to refill this week to have them for her in case we can't get the Morphine before her appointment with her new doctor.  The law will not allow a call in  for Morphine, I have  to hand them the actual prescription in person and the only reason they allow me to hand it  in with  Mom's  name on it, they know who I am.
