Good morning, grmoore, Robustus, MidnigthSun, yankie, MusicTeacher, JM, hmcsretired07, scout, TUrtLE, and senile!

grmoore, {{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}

Robustus, hope things go well for you today.

MidnightSun, seems unreal to me that you're talking about your heat being on and we still have our AC going (usually later in the day).

MusicTeacher, will check out your studio shortly.

JM, gooooo, Falcons!

scout, busy, busy, busy!

TUrtLE, LOL!!

yankie, hmcsretired, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

I am going to the nail salon this morning for a pedicure. Afterwards? Not sure yet; I might go to the grocery store, but then I might just wait 'til tomorrow. We shall see.

Good Morning Claudie,

Unlocking your car:

Two blondes were recently observed in a parking lot trying to unlock the door of their Mercedes with a coat hanger. Here is their dialogue:

Blonde One: I can't seem to get this door unlocked!

Blonde Two: Well, you'd better hurry up and try harder! it's starting to rain, and the top is down!

HHD!

Good Evening, Claudie ♪ Thank you for the congrats on my brand new GB red limousine. That one is my all-time favorite of the GB fleet!

I am glad your Monday was productive. Sorry the pollen in your area is getting to be a problem.

I hope you had a nice Tuesday of taking your Mom to WM.

Thankfully my Tuesday at work was much better with steadier Customers throughout the day, as I shared at my Studio.

Good Night!

Good morning Claudie!

43 now w/overcast. 30 tomorrow morning. 35 Friday morn. The heat is on.

Woke up to light rain falling at 1 AM yesterday morning. It rained for two hours, it stopped for a few hours and began again, more moderately this time. Completed my rounds, then took a 90 min nap. The sky was still dark.

Woke up to rain and played StarCraft: Brood War. Had one of the best battles ever. The Protoss and terran fighting side by side against me w/my Zerg army. Very hard work, yet very entertaining.

Drove to the PO after the rain stopped late morning. Then went to Shaw's for some boneless, skinless, chicken breasts on sale for $1.99 a lb. Lucked out seeing 2 pkgs of 80/20% ground lamb for $1.99 a lb.

Returned home for a low carb lamb burger lunch and saw a fabulous epi of Law & Order: SVU. While investigating a baby's infected w/Aids, the unit uncovers a doctor who claims Aids is not real. That it is a gov't and pharmaceutical conspiracy.

Did see the sun for 10 minutes. Just was not time to enjoy it. Did go out and add some compost to one clump of echinacea to stand it upright. Picked 6 more tomatoes. Storing them in the fridge to make salsa. Will need to be fairly soon.

Civil twilight is 5:58 AM EDT. Night is 7:22 PM.

Sunrise: 6:27 AM. Set: 6:53 PM.

Length of day: 12h 25m. Length of visible light: 13h 23m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), the high is to be 65° (18°C). The sun returns.

Have a fabulous day!

Hi Claudie!

Shame! Shame on me!

I didn't get out to do anything with Mom these past 2 days. I knew it was coming. Around 9 this evening, I got a phone call from her and she was very upset. She also mentioned something about one of the nurses taking out their frustration on her calling them again. So, I eventually got Mom calmed down. I definitely to get out there tomorrow after work! She is expecting me! So, I can't let her down anymore!

Have a good night!

Thanks all for the notes of condolence and well-wishes.

Today was a challenge getting all of the logistics for remaining items. As things progress and we inch closer to Thursday (the viewing and funeral) nerves and emotions are beginning to show.

Prayers for wisdom and clear thoughts for all please!

Thanks again.

Hiya, kathybye!

Wow! Lots to be done to fixing the mess from the flooding, inside and out! :( Yes, good thing you ARE working part time. Once you choose a company, will you have to wait a while before they can start the work?

Hi, Claudie:
To answer the $$ ? for mold remediation, no insurance, as this area rarely floods. USAA rep stated our policy would be $1000 more per year. So think 6K (mold remediation/carpet removal/dehumifier/fans for 24-36 hours to dry out area/cutting affected all and disposal of all/spraying chemicals to retard mold/ taking down drapes 25 ft ceiling/air quality test and replacing drywall for repairs (may be lower), is actually a bargain. We received 3 estimates. Still waiting on one more drywall estimate, which is separate from the mold issue.
Of course, the 6K does not count getting new tile/installation, so glad I am working part-time.

Our landscaping (put in 20 yr ago) had a flower bed right next to the house on E side., and has poor drainage. We are remedying this situation; the fact I was gone did not help, or I could have called for water extraction earlier.
I am looking to put in tile in the bottom floor area in the event we have water overflow again.

Hello, Bus Jockey, Lighting10K, sandipaws, Farful, grmoore, kathybye, and dickc49!

Lighting, I was in the car at 11 this morning and heard some of the ground-breaking ceremony for the Braves new stadium. As for the team...wow! They really ARE tanking out. :( I don't see any way that they're going to even make a wild card spot.

Farful, hoping for temps in the low 60s the next few mornings. Yeah! :) Wow! I sure do like your gas price at Sam's. In this area, the lowest is about $3.25. Hope ours keeps going down.

grmoore, hope things get worked out. {{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}

kathybye, did you get things worked out so you can get the flooded part taken care of? Hope it isn't going to cost you an arm and a leg, though. Getting back to work for you will be a good distraction. It won't take you long to get back into the swing of things, though.

dick, wow! That's cool that you got an appointment set up already. I figured you'd have to wait a week or 2, maybe longer. Hope you can get something set up so that you begin to feel some relief. Good that the new glasses lens are right this time, too. :)

Bus Jockey and sandipaws, thanks for stopping in!

Good morning Claudie,

The new lens seems to be pretty good. It sees distance pretty well, and best right in the center top like it should. Close up is a bit more specific. You really need to hold things a certain distance to get the most out of the bifocals. At leas I can look straight forward to see OK now instead of off to the side a bit! It will take another few days to get completely used to them.

I called for the pain management appointment yesterday and I have the consult set up for tomorrow afternoon. Will find out then what they do, how they do it, and WHEN they are going to do it. As I have not been told I cannot drive to this appointment, I know they are not going to give me any shots. Know they do not let you drive home, and that you should really not do anything for the rest of the day after a shot. I was happy to be able to be seen so quickly. I will take my MRI results with me, as well as some very old surgical notes I have from my 1979 back surgery.

Hope you have a good outing with your mother today. Hope she enjoys her time at Walmart.

Hi Claudie and friends:

I am returning to work tomorrow, and actually glad to be going back.

After the house flooding (and more heavy rain WED/THURS), it will be a nice
distraction to get away, even though I know the first several days back will be crazy, and I'll be dead tired when I return.

Good morning, Dino, yankie, MidnightSun, MusicTeacher, pinkelefant, JM, attitash, hmcsretired07, scout, TUrtLE, and senile!

Dino, hmmm, interesting music left today. :)

MidnightSun, wow! Really cooler temps for you now. Our lows are nowhere near there (in the low 60s), though, I am certainly welcoming what we're getting!

MusicTeacher, I had a short to-do list for yesterday, and I was easily able to get everything done. :)

pink, hot or rainy? Are you getting both? :(

JM, yes, tough girl indeed(Alex)! I talked to Son last night and he said he was not surprised at the outcome of Sunday's game; he said the Bengals are a really, really good team. He says he thinks we'll do better against TB on Thursday night, though. Surely hope so!

attitash, have a good (??) CME day!

scout, so you do all the preliminary work and Mrs. Scout does the painting, right? Will check out you newer pix soon.

TUrtLE, thanks for today's blonde joke. :)

yankie, hmcsretired, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

It's Tuesday, so I'll be taking mom to the store. I might have one stop on the way home; I'll just have to see on the time.

Good Morning Claudie,

Slot machine winner:

A dumb blonde was standing in front of a soda machine outside of a local store. After putting in sixty cents, a root beer pops out of the machine. She set it on the ground, puts sixty more cents into the machine, and pushes another button; suddenly, a coke comes out the machine!

She continued to do this until a man waiting to use the machine became impatient. "Excuse me, can I get my soda and then you can go back to whatever stupid thing you are doing?"

The blonde turns around and says, "Yeah right! I'm not giving up this machine while I'm still winning!"

Have a Totally Terrific Tuesday!

Good morning, Claudie. Yes, she will go to school on Friday. She will sleep while I drive. Last year, I took Doris, Alex and my son and Alex made it to school. She will be exhausted when she gets home from school, but she will make it. Alex and I made it to a Thursday night game in Nashville a few years ago and she made it to school, tough girl.

Good Evening, Claudie ♩ So glad your area got some much needed rain overnight! Sorry your favorite team, the Falcons, lost last night.

I hope your stay-at-home day went well!

You're welcome for the explanation about inventory of sheet music. I shared more about it today at my long Studio update. I wish my company had a handheld scanner, just like Justin uses at his job. If only they had that, I would breeze through inventory work! Today's updates are posted at my Studio.

Good Night! Please √ out my brand new GB red limousine, my all-time favorite GB car!

Good morning Claudie!

Like a better game that is exciting, not one sided.

Temp was down to 36° (2°C) yesterday morning. It did not warm up to 50° (10°C) until 11 AM. Watered the tomatoes and picked 5 of them. Nice, juicy, and firm ones, thanks to the crushed egg shells amended to the soil in May.

Wind was from the north and had a chill to it. The sun sun felt fabulous. The shade did not. Performed further garden maintenance and picked 1/4 cup of blueberries.

Many of the daylilies are browning with the exception of the one transplanted in early May, named radiant greeting. They bloom orange-yellow with a wide red halo and slightly ruffled petals. No longer w/blooms this year, just lush green growth for next spring to flower.

Mowed 25% of the lawn around the highbush bb's. Have the lawn behind the house remaining. The sun is low in the horizon, the lawn is now almost entirely in the shade. In just weeks the sun will never be seen above treeline until April arrives.

Saw an episode of Law & Order: SVU and then one from CSI: Miami. Made some fried rice w/red and orange peppers, onions, mushrooms, julienne carrots and broccoli. Felt the need of a change of veggies w/ribs and chicken cutlets.

Civil twilight is 5:57 AM EDT. Night is 7:24 PM.

Sunrise: 6:26 AM. Set: 6:55 PM.

Length of day: 12h 28m. Length of visible light: 13h 27m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 47° (3°C), the high is to be 60° (17°C). There is a 70% chance of rain. It is raining lightly.

Have a wonderful day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

I could kick myself for missing this past weekend's game. She will continue to play throughout the next two months though so plenty of chances to catch her.

Tonight's edition of Dino's Jukebox was preempted from last Thursday. Thought we'd spin it tonight to keep the alphabet on schedule.

The first of the artists in this week's jukebox entry became a huge success as a Country artist. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he claims Rock was his first love, but felt he'd be more successful being a Country singer. As of June 2014, He has sold nearly 70 million albums in the US making him the most successful selling artist in any genre in the US since Nielsen Soundscan started tracking music sales in 1991. He sings lead covering a classic tune from the K entry of Dino's Jukebox.

The K artists have had a bit of success as well. They formed in 1973 in New York and have been known for their extravagant stage shows, their lavish costumes, and their unique face makeup. In 1983, still young music channel MTV got to do something that no one else had done with the band. Show them without makeup. They would go on to perform for a good few years without their makeup including in tonight's performance which comes from MTV's Unplugged performance in 1995. Here are the superstars collaborating for this tune.

Hi Claudie!

What a difference from yesterday! Gone from completely busy to nothing today.

The only thing I got accomplish was seems to turn into a Monday ritual-another pot of goulash! This time it turned out pretty good. I told my dad I'll bring him some, but haven't made it over there yet. So, I hope he'll eat it tomorrow because I know I have plenty left.

Hopefully tomorrow I can get out and do something with Mom like I said yesterday.

Good afternoon Claudie,

Having a slow start to today. Will go up and make that pain management call after I'm done posting. Then its off to the optometrist to get the new lens for the glasses. I also need to stop off at the bank and deposit some checks. Not a lot else planned, I will do some reading and spend a bit of time at the PC too.

Hello Bus Jockey, sandipaws, and Farful!!

Bus Jockey, hmmmm, is this earlier than normal that you got the boat out? How often do they lower the lake to work on the docks and seawalls?

sandipaws, it feels a little cool here right now, too, though, it's not down into the low 40s. It's about 70°, VERY cloudy, and quite humid, so (to me, at least) it feels a little cool. I checked the temp inside the house, and it's about 75°, which is nice to me. :)

Farful, have a great lunch (buffet) at the Casino! Can't beat that price! Is that the normal, everyday price, or a special price or birthday celebrants?

Claudie, Thank you for the birthday wishes! Celebrating at Wild Rose Casino with their $2.99 lunch buffet.
 
Sorry that your team lost yesterday. We had some rain overnight also.
 
Have a wonderful Monday!

Good morning Claudie,
It's a little foggy here this morning, but it's starting to lift already. Also, it was 42 degrees this morning. Time for the jacket!
Enjoy your day at home and have a marvelous Monday! {{Hugs}}

Good Morning Claudie!
Took the pontoon out of the water for the season now I have to power wash seats and floor, Tune up and cover for the winter. This is the year they will lower the lake four feet so folks can work on docks and seawalls.
Have a good week.

Wow! Cool! It's rained nice and slow overnight; don't really know when it started, but the rain gain has almost a ½-inch in it. :)

Good morning, Dino, Robustus, Silverhand, jqwright, MidnightSun, JM, Lighting10K, hmcsretired07, senile, scout, TUrtLE, and grmoore!

Dino, a good weekend indeed for your sports teams, most importantly...Emily's basketball team! :)

Robustus, wow! You DID have a full day yesterday! Glad you got to see your mom. Yes, maybe today or tomorrow you can take her out somewhere.

Sikverhand, thanks for the Sunday 'toons. :)

jqwright, oh, dear! The 49ers lost? Wow! The last time I checked they were ahead. The Bears must have really come back strong. Not a good day for either of our households (as far as football games went).

MidnightSun, I will check our Home Depot account online and make sure everything's alright. I see your football team did a number on the Vikings. I know you're happy with that.

JM, it'll be a late night for Alex then; she won't go to school on Friday, will she?

Lighting, not a good Sunday for Atlanta sports teams at all. :(

hmcsretired and senile, thanks for stopping in!

scout, wow! You're just breezing along with those bathroom renovations!

TUrtLE, love that corn maze for blondes! LOL

grmoore, have a safe flight!

No errands for me today. :) I do have a few things to take care of at home, though, including some phone calls. Probably a good thing, too, since it looks like it could be another cloudy (maybe drizzly day). We'll see as the day goes on.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Monday! 65 degrees and foggy this morning.

Thanks so much for the thoughts and prayers you have expressed.

We're off to drive to FL in a few hours to attend to the details of my father-in-law's passing. I would appreciate prayers for travel mercies and consolation to all involved.

I didn't have time to watch sports yesterday as I was preparing for today's travel and getting work affairs in order since I'll be out for an extra 3 days. We were already scheduled to fly down on Thursday (the 18th) but those plans quickly changed.

By the way, the "touted bereavement fares" offered by only a few airlines is laughable! First, you have to call to obtain the prices. Next, they initially quoted me the same price as what was regularly available online, and when I so indicated, they would only come off of the regular price about $60 for a $400 - 500 per person ticket. The $400+ flights represents an increase of around $200 depending on the day of the week when you are inside the 14 day advance window.

Off to it.

Have a great day all!

Good Morning Claudie,

It's time to resume blonde jokes.
We'll begin today with a graphic that was shared with me by GB niaw. Thanks niaw.

I have kept a list of those I've used in the past, but for some reason they don't match up with those on the blonde joke web site I have saved. What I'm saying is, if you see repeats please bear with me. I'll do my best.

Have a Most Marvelous Monday!
