This is the new home of me, Dirt Girl. Built at the request of a much loved GB icon. Actually, the old place was falling down and it was just cheaper to build a new one.

Morning:
Sorry Goldie l couldn't find any dresses on Costco online. They don't really have much clothing no more than or even as much as Target and l hear CVS has dresses now. My neighbor had to buy several to use with her hear monitor. She got them at CVS and they were cute. So much so that l asked where she got them and that's why l know. Sleeveless tho. I see all kinds of hawaiian prints and love them, but most are sleeveless or have a waistline. Can't wear form fitting anymore too uncomfortable. When l wear pants (slacks or jeans, or khakis) i pull them off as soon as l get home and toss on a muumuu. Most dresses like l wear are not in dresses, but in lounge wear or lingerie.

Dirt Girl l gave him cash last year. He would probably prefer that. Just thinking l could channel where he spent. Get him back to lower priced gas but it is 20c a gallon cheaper where he lives anyway.
I just wasted my money on membership card for him and myself for the most part last time. But this time at least l am buying lots of things that l price check elsewhere first.

"You just made all of us feel old here. lol"

I thought it was just me. :) I agree about James Garner. He had charisma, but also seemed to have an air of humility, that we don't always see in successful actors. I think that I read once that he didn't start out to be an actor, go through the drama school route, but was "discovered".

Re: "leading man", what about Tom Selleck? For t.v. anyway. He's currently in "Blue Bloods".

MadDog, Just think that you're one day closer to retirement. :) Oh my, your dad used to watch the Rockford Files when you were a kid. You just made all of us feel old here. lol

Dino, James Garner was one of my favorite actors. Probably the last era of leading men in Hollywood though I guess you could call Tom Hanks a leading man. Don't know if you are aware but Manic Monday was written by Prince who is still a local favorite and still drawing crowds.

goldieolds, The same reason that I don't have a membership to either Sams or Costco, neither one are convenient. The pumps that I have seen are self service so I guess you just swipe your membership or gift card first. I have seen a picture of James Garner at one local restaurant so he was obviously in town at one time or another.

db, A very steamy day here. I guess summer is here. :)

trugas, I think your son would get a lot of use out of a gift card but then who wouldn't. :)

Good evening all

Seemed appropriate this evening on the way to work, bouncing from radio station to radio station when I found one playing "Manic Monday" from the Bangles. I hope it's not a sign.

Enjoying some blueberries and getting ready to start another night. One of my favorite parts of summer. The many various berries available.

Another death in the Wood County school system happened over the weekend. This time it was Tom Eschbacher (pronounced "Esh Bocker") the principal at Parkersburg South high school. He would die of brain cancer at age 51.

Heading to Parkersburg on Wednesday. Emily has a double header at the Elite Center. These will be her last two games in the summer league there. Time to get the night jump started. Take care.

Tru, the "Aloha" dresses (my word for them) were not muumuus. They were knee (or a little above) length dresses, kind of a skimmer style, one has kind of a ruffle for about the bottom third. But the the fabric was Hawaiian print. I had wished that they had long lengths too, but they didn't, at that time. It was nearly ten years ago. And they were made in China. But what isn't, these days? Maybe some of the expensive ones in the tourist shops were made on the islands, I don't really know.

A funny thing (to me, anyway) was that I ended up buying another, even cheaper ($10 or less) "dress" at a grocery store. It was a lighter weight fabric and kind of uneven (not on purpose) around the hem. It was a hibiscus print in my favorite color, a beautiful shade of purple, so I couldn't resist. I think it was meant to be a beach cover-up, but I wore it as a very casual dress.

Let me know what you find online.

Morning:
Yes the gas is the main reason l would get it for my son. He never went into the store. He has a bud who has a Sam's Club card so they shop there occasionally when the guy is in town. You can use the gift card exactly as Goldie said, buy anything you want way over the cost of the gift, and just pay the difference. You use it just as a membership card. Nothing extra needed to buy gas either. But l don't think you could go over the amount there. Just in the warehouse.
Sure wish they would get some aloha dresses here. I will look online to see if they have any ..

RIP James Garner. Thanks for the memories!

DG, yes, my thoughts exactly about using a gift card to shop at Costco.I've thought about that, giving someone who is a member, some money to buy one for me and then use it to shop there. But I haven't done it. It's not a convenient store for me to get to and there are so many other places to shop.

I wonder if you could use it for gas? You might still need to show a membership for that; don't know. Tru, do you know?

Good morning DG and Co.

I remember the Sonny and Cher show. I was very young then, but still remember it and Sonny becoming the mayor of Palm Springs.
Back after a weekend off of doing not much. Rain cancelled my plans to mow on Saturday. Got it done Sunday afternoon and the yard looks much better now. As you may know by now, we lost another great actor in James Garner. He was known for several movies and TV shows. However, I grew up in the '70s and I remember him as Jim Rockford. Never watched the show, but my parents did and the theme was what stood out to me. He will be missed

TV Theme from "The Rockford Files"

The heat returns to the area this week. After daytime temps in the 70s last week, we should be pushing 90 most of this week. Time to jump start the week. If it sounds weak, don't worry. It's just the lawn mower.

trugas, That's quite the adventure you had with the chest of drawers. So glad that you took numerous rest breaks and took your time to think it out. Great that you have more storage now. Sometimes I think there is never enough storage. lol

goldieolds, The gift card sounds like the the deal on how to shop at Costco without a membership. Sounds like it was a good deal on the aloha dresses. I am enjoying the weather. :)

Tru, my brother gave me a Costco gift card one year for my b.d. I wasn't a member, and didn't have to be to use it. He checked beforehand, and also found out that if I'd wanted to buy something that cost more than the amount on the card, I could have done that and paid the difference, w/o being a member.

I bet that having a gift card would be more of an incentive than just a membership for your son to stop there. But I don't know how convenient the location is for him.

For me, it worked out even better than expected, b/c coincidentally I went to Hawai'i before using up my gift card. There was a Costco near my cousins' house, where I stayed. They took me there before they left, so I saw where it was, and I bought some things on their membership. But after they left town and I was on my own, I was able to go back and shop there using the gift card.

It was very fun to see that they had "Aloha" dresses there, for about $20 each. They'd probably have cost about $60 in a tourist gift shop, and then I wouldn't have been able to buy them. Not as much selection at Costco, but I still found two that I liked enough to buy. And I wore them a lot after I got home, too. Unfortunately, I doubt they'll fit me now. :((

I wanted to buy some macadamia nuts to bring home for myself and for gifts. I thought why spend more? I bought them at Costco, a bunch of small containers boxed together for one price. Then I split them up and gave some to different people, keeping what was left. mmmm........ I LOVE mac nuts!

I also bought a couple bottles of wine there. I shared one bottle with my cousins the night before they left on their trip. They cooked dinner and I furnished the wine. Don't think I'd have thought to go somewhere to buy wine if I hadn't seen it a good price at Costco. I kept the second bottle in case I wanted some while I was there, after they left. A friend from here was living in Kaneohe, on the same island, and I knew we'd be getting together. I bought it in case we wanted it when we got together. Turns out we always went out when we got together, so I never used it, but I left it for my cousins. It was inexpensive enough that it wasn't a big deal.

There are so many things at Costco, I'd be very surprised if your son doesn't find something to buy with a gift card. Like some electronics. :)

DG, I hope you're enjoying the weather!

Morning:
Let me tell you what an experience for an old lady just bringing in a chest of drawers can be. I have a practical mind, thank goodness, which helps me to achieve my goals.
Here l had an incline to the patio, a step up to the house and a narrow opening between the dishwasher and cabinet. Yet l wanted this heavy wood dresser and no one strong to help me get it in. So l pulled the drawers and carried them into the yard. Actually l thot l might stain or paint them there.
Then l pushed the frame up the incline and closed the gate. Went in and took my b/p and it was not too bad, tho l felt like l might die. So l rested til l got my wind back.Then l emptied the dishwasher and put the laundry away while thinking over the situation.
Originally l thot it would go to the bedroom. But decided with measuring that it would fit better in the front room. I had to move other furniture, like a bookcase to the bedroom in order to make way. Move the rocker/glider and unload etc. Requiring lots of rest breaks.
I filled my medication holders while resting. Then l brought in the frame of the chest by rolling it in like a square wheel. End over end then sliding it on the floor as far as my rug. Then roll again. Got it set up and rested. Then one drawer at a time l brought them in and set them down. They were heavy and long. So l put them to my shoulder open side to me, put one hand inside and walked them in that way.
Had a little problem when l tried putting the drawers on the runners as one wouldn't go and l struggled til had to quit. Hard for me in a squatting position and l get all out of breath. But finally tried that drawer in another slot and it fit. Finally all drawers in. Now the heavy bookshelf had to be dealt with. It is pressed wood. I had to pull out the cedar chest to get that in place. Then carry all the items l wanted to bring in to front room. You can imagine it is hours later. I even tried to nap but couldn't, after unloading my bed .....
This story is getting long. But it is what l have to go thru to accomplish what l want.
I showered and set my hair and then proceeded to put some items in the chest.
I watered and fed the back yard and was happy the chest wasn't in the way of my watering. So l am proud and happy that l not only have more storage, did it myself and it was free. LOL

Yep l do like the meat from Costco, tho l took back the lamb today. They even said "Lamb has to be just right to be good" and gave me all my money back. Good thing coz it is expensive and l don't often buy it.

Yes Dirt Girl l am going to get my money's worth or know the reason why. LOL.
I am even thinking of getting a cash gift card for my son's birthday tho he never shopped there when l gave him a membership card. He did buy their gas.

DG, those appts were for my physical therapist. My MD is probably scheduling even further out. Not only is she very good, but not too many docs practice the kind of medicine (integrative, functional and more holistic) approach that she and her two colleagues do at that clinic. This reminds me that I should get on the books for another appt.

I saw one of the other of those three doctors at a private event recently. I recognized her from the website. She told me that they've already outgrown that clinic and that they need to hire another doctor to do what they do, but there isn't room. They're trying to work something out.

I don't like that it's so hard to get appts, but I really like that it is getting so popular.

Tru, that's why I've been "California Dreamin'" most of my life. :) Did I tell you that we lived in L.A. when I was a baby? I think it imprinted on me. We also went frequently to visit family, and I went to summer school one year at UCLA. Have always loved CA.

Glad you're having fun with your Costco membership.

trugas, I think it's fun to wander around stores and find out what's new. Glad you are taking advantage of your Costco membership. :)

Dino, That's not one of my favorite Cher songs. Probably like "I Got You Babe" back from when they had their show on tv. Back then, they would bring Chastity on at the end of the show and she would wave goodnight. :)

MadDog, That's ok. When you find something you like, stick with it. :)

goldieolds, That's how you can tell how good your doctor is, when they have no appointments available. lol

Hi PAplott.

three30, Finally, a reference that I don't have to look up. lol Did you know that the original Kate Bradley (Bea Benaderet) was on both the Jack Benny Show and the Burns and Allen Show. She was also the voice of Betty Rubble which is something I didn't know. :)

Morning:
Goldie don't cry now, but where l live now, we can have 70 degree days as early as March, or at least April. But not daily of course. That's the shock for us is warm one day then freezing the next. But Oct is a good month here and even into November. So our nice weather can be as long as 7 to 8 months. Makes those 4 months of cold, damp and windy days with little sun more bearable. I just don't like gray days.
I think it almost rained last night. The weather channel doesn't show rain, but that fog they predicted must have really been wet then. I have seen wet sidewalks from fog, but not this wet. We'll take any moisture right now tho as far as fires are concerned. Doesn't help our drinking water situation tho. I was born in CA coz mom was fleeing the dust bowl in the 30's,now it is here.
I didn't go to Wally's world as l thot l would. I went to Costco and bought meats.
Chicken breasts, and didn't get the frozen cheaper ones. Got more of the $3.29 hamburger and some thick lamb chops. Bone so thick l will not be able to cook them on GEO Forman grill well. Their rib eyes had shot up to double the price l paid last time. Still haven't bought gas. Waiting to see how low it will get, as GB said it could come down 25c a gallon. Here it has come down about 10 to 15 cents from last month.

HI all.

DG, has June finally arrived? LOL I hope you're enjoying it. :) I am, and hope it continues.

Had to schedule some p.t. appts, and they are now scheduling for September. SEPTEMBER???!! Noooooooooooooo.............

For me, the hardest part of living in this climate is not even the cold and snow, but the length of winter and fall and the shortness of spring and summer. I'm feeling it again, but first realized it when I first moved to the South, way back when. Winters were not very nice, but when I was ready for spring to come, it really could. Of course it didn't every year, but sometimes it did, and even if the Groundhog saw his shadow and ran back in, that six more weeks was even better than here. And if he stayed out, spring weather really could come in early February. Then summer remained at least through September, and maybe even October.

[Sighhhh.....]

Not much going on here (at MY place) so guess l will go to Wally's world to see what is onsale there. I haven't been there but once this year. I like their paper product prices. But not much else. Like to stock up when the school sales start on pens, and binders. I am full up on Elmers glue, Wite out,staples and such.
I am basically going for the Gold Bond products, and to look around.
I spent time scrubbing the bottoms of my skillets yesterday, and don't want to do anymore of that type of chore today, so l am outta here. Smile.

Good evening DG and Co.

DG can't be anyone good, compared to the list you gave:-)

Actually, one name that comes to mind is Ryan Tedder who has written for both Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce. Those two alone make for quite a resume.

The weather prognosticators seem to love their fancy words. They're calling the current cool weather the polar vortex of summer. When I think of polar vortex I think of -15 not 75. Granted, we are supposed to be in the upper 80s at this time, I for one am not complaining. Currently we are sitting at 60 outside.

Jamboree In The Hills is getting ready to kick off here locally. Some have called it the "Super Bowl of Country Music." That's said because of some of the big names in Country that perform at the event. I am not interested in this. Not because of the Country music, but for the excessive amounts of Anheuser Busch products circulating there. Basically, it's one big drunken party with some Country music thrown in. Just not my kind of adventure. I bring it up because it is such a big deal here. It will pass after Sunday afternoon, and we'll all go back to "normal" here.

Dino's Jukebox plays tomorrow night. Got a really good "C" artist to "share" with you. See you then.

Goldie: my son described the entire process they all went thru to make the clam chowder and pounding the necks of a different kind of clam to fry. He said it all was a big process. One person chopping veggies, one cleaning clams, one pounding one frying etc. They came back home to do it. Too cold and wet at the beach.
End result was no better tasting than what he makes with snows brand clams.

He was not impressed and especially the cost of license and gas to get to the coast etc. Still he enjoyed his friends and being with them. One thing he said which l did not know, they had to dig down a couple of feet for the long neck clams. l thought they were closer to surface.

I remember Clamdiggers.

"wait a day the weather will change"

We didn't see much of that this winter. Snow and more snow, cold and more cold. :(

Had to pull on my down comforter last night. I guess I could have used a different blanket, but it was still out and handy. Why bother putting winter things away any more?

Samsung has made quite the name for themselves. I have an antique Samsung Android phone and one of the original Galaxy Tabs.

Good evening dg and co.

DG thanks for the condolences. She was a great person. Heaven has definitely gained an Angel that can "Tell it like it is." I totally agree with you on the songwriters. I grew up in the '80s, but have a growing love for '70s pop as well. You definitely mentioned the cream of the crop when it came to songwriters.

goldieolds thanks as well.


Stopping in for a quick hello. Busy couple of nights at work. Just remember this, the next time you buy a quart of oil at Auto Zone or WM, think of me when you look at the label. I may have been in charge of the receiving of the label here at work. Take care.

CO2, Right now about 55 degrees now. Supposedly 80's later this week. I stopped trying to max post a couple of weeks ago and dropped about 12 places on the overall list. At this rate, I'll be off the list entirely by the end of the year. lol

DG, we had some really warm and humid days, so the A/C was on during that time.

It's at 60° and only 67% humidity, right now. It sounds like it's suppose to be really nice for the rest of the week, too.

MD, do you like the S5? I would love to have one, but I don't want to pay the $399 Straight Talk wants for one.
