Hello, munchkins_mom and attitash!

munchkins_mom, that sounds like a good solution for the haircuts. I'm glad trevor can help you out. :)

attitash, that's good that you have until Fall before the next CME test. Do you ever know what kinds of things will be on it?

Hi Claudie, my husband is taking the boys for haircuts tomorrow and I have appointments for myself and the girls on Friday. I'm amazed all of the stuff seems to have fallen into place. Enjoy the day.

Well, well! What do ya know!

The yard guy called, wanting to try and come up with another time to mow the grass/weeds. I didn't remember from last night's news that there was a good chance of rain (again) tomorrow. Anyway he wanted to know if he could come today after all since it had been so sunny all day plus windy. Hubby went and checked and the grass/weeds actually WERE dry! Surprise! Come on over (that was about 2:30); they just left and the yard's mowed! Looks good, too. :)

Good afternoon, Scanman and Robustus!

Scanman, yes! As busy as I get on some days, I am ecstatic when things go my way, just as I planned. :)

Robustus, I hope the stuff you're getting for your dad to eat is healthy. Hmmmmm? Good that you're getting to the gym a little more now. As for the pollen...man, is my nose ever dripping, esp. after the yard got mowed! Can smell those wild onions, too! :(

Happy April Fools Day Claudie!

Nothing to fool around here today!

Go into work at 4 for one of those occasional evening shifts they throw at me.

Not much going on. Just work, working out at the gym. Then the ongoing annoying trips to Dad's house with his meal. Then I get stuck over there for a few hours. Actually last night was more than a few hours. I intentionally stayed a little longer since I didn't have to work this morning. However, I started dozing off while sitting watching TV with him and it was after 2 in the morning when I made it home. The good thing I was able to get caught up on some lost sleep over the past few days.

Anyway, the weather here is still gorgeous. Supposed to be a tad cooler in the upper 60's today. But then heat up again into the mid 70's tomorrow and then around 80 Friday. I think the pollen situation is similar to yours. I haven't watched the news lately to see the latest report. But the other day while I was at the gym, I glanced up at the TV and saw the weatherman saying tree pollen is high and grass and weeds are still low. Like I said yesterday, none of that powdery stuff yet.

Well, I better get up for work. I probably have to stop to get Dad something to eat and then head out to work. Then I'll head to the gym after I get off at 9. So, it will be another late night for me. But I'll be off work the next two days. Of course, never know what Dad could throw in to pester me to do!

Have a good afternoon!

Everything worked out perfectly this morning. Got Mom to the store and back home again, and I was on my way to the grocery store by 10:10. Used a few paper coupons and 1 e-coupon; got about $3.00 for the senior discount, most probably b/c I got several gift cards. There's a promotion going on that says you get 4X the value of the gift card (in fuel points) until Saturday. Took the opportunity to get a bunch of them; the gift cards were ones I would have used anyway. :) I also got gas at Kroger and used some accumulated fuel points; saved 30¢ a gallon, making it $1.89/gallon. Nice!

No grass mowing today; I contacted the yard guy and he said it was more than likely still too wet; he'll try to get us scheduled for tomorrow or maybe Monday. I let him know that Monday would not be a good day for us. We'll see what he comes up with.

Ah-ah-ah-aaaaaahhhhh-choooooo!

The only bad thing is that the pollen is bothering me today. :(

Hello, scout, sandipaws, kathybye, Farful, grmoore, and dickc49!

scout, hope you're feeling better.

sandipaws, yeah, hoping for more showers off and on during April; that helps get/keep the water table up for summertime.

kathybye, not too bad, getting home 45 minutes earlier. :)

Farful, no, no breakfast at the senior center this morning; I had to pick Mom up earlier so I could get to the grocery store. Maybe tomorrow.

grmoore, go Lady Panthers softball team!

dick, grrrrr on finding the bumper damaged. That means it was a hit-and-run, so to speak. <sheesh> Some people! Hope it doesn't cost too much to get it fixed. Yes, our lawn needs mowing, esp. in spots where the weeds are already about a foot tall (can you believe it?). There are still small areas where it's still brown, but I'd say that's only about ¼ of the lawn. The rest has greened up really nicely...BUT it's mostly the weeds!

Good afternoon Claudie,

I am boiling more sap today. Having a good run of sap. Soon the tree will begin its budding and that will cause the sap taste to sour. At that point you dump additional sap out. Its one of the reasons I boil in smaller lots.
Managed to wash my truck yesterday. Found my front bumper is damaged on the passenger side edge. Have no idea when or where it happened. Its a chrome metal bumper and the damage has rust showing so it was at least a week or more ago. Grrr. Insurance people come on Friday to take a look at it and give me a damage estimate. Its less than a year old so I will be getting it repaired.

Your lawn needs mowing? Mine is still mostly under the snow! The parts that have emerged are still completely BROWN. I might be able to rake some of it by next week, but it will take about three more to turn green, let alone grow!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Wednesday and April Fool's Day (as opposed to February Fool's Day, March Fool's Day, etc.) :)

Busy day today that started early with a call with the CDC office in Ethiopia. We solved several items so it was time well spent.

NBA draft is in June.

I'm working from home this morning and am off this afternoon call the GSU vs. Furman Softball doubleheader.

Rehearsal went well last night for our upcoming May 1 concert.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Yard guy should be happy with the rain.

Whooooeee! Did it ever storm here last night (oh, I'd say starting about 10:30 or 11)...thunder, lightning, rain, and wind! Whoo! LOTS of activity! I checked the rain gauge this morning and there's an inch of rain in it! Hmmmm, got to wait until daylight and look around, but I'm guessing the yard guy won't be able to mow this wet yard today again!

Good morning, Dino, Robustus, JCTRAIL, MidnightSun, Glasman, yankie, Lighting10K, HouHrl, JM, senile, org, and TUrtLE!

Welcome to April!

Dino, nice picture of you and Emily. As for getting back here to GB, I figure you will when you're ready.

Robustus, the pine pollen is starting to show up on things, but not too heavily yet. It will, though.

MidnightSun, with all those Monopoly pieces you've been getting, have you won anything big? When does the game end?

Glasman, welcome to Claudie's Place! I actually live about 30 miles south of the city so I don't get into Atlanta much at all. The traffic sure IS a pain! Come back and visit again when you can.

Lighting, wow! TOT's storage is on the 4th floor of a building? Yuck! Good thing there was an elevate to use. As for working on that property having the Easter egg hunt Saturday...good luck with that! I bet that ground is soaked!

JM, rumor has it that the prices of our tickets would possibly be doubling (where we would sit in the new stadium). That would be waaaaay too much for us! So will you still be moving closer to Atlanta in a few years?

org, thanks for the history info.

TUrtLE, nope, didn't know about National Walking Day. That's a new one for me.

JCTRAIL, yankie, HouHrl, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

Another busy morning on tap for me. Since I didn't take Mom to the store yesterday morning, I'll be leaving a little early and taking her to the store (about 9). Then after I take her back home, I'll head on over to the grocery store. Man! Her and her WM visits! Sometimes it's hard to get them worked in when there are other appointments!

Good Morning Claudie,

We all know that today is April Fools Day, but did you know that it's also National Walking Day?

The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day. The American Heart Association sponsors this day, a day for people to get out and take a walk. Wear your sneakers (or take them with you) to work and at some point in the day, you are encouraged to take a 30 minute walk.

So, when you finish posting, up you go.

Good morning, Claudie. If sporting teams continue to increase the prices of tickets and food, I will become a living room sport fan. I do enjoy going to games but, I have a responsibility to provide a living for my family. I thought in the past about becoming a season pass owner until the Falcons started to build the new stadium. This is one of the reason why I was looking at moving back to Atlanta. Well, I will see.

Good Morning Claudie {{{HUGS}}}

Having some severe weather to west south west. Not good at this time of
night. 59° Thunderstorm

Took me two day to get everything in to storage. They rented a U-Haul 24'.
I drove it. I started to pack it than Kelly finish it up. I and one other
person was bring stuff out to the truck why he packed it. Took three hours
to have a very load truck.

Our storage unit is on the four floor. Nothing like going up and down
in a elevator. They have three unit. 10' x 15' Two for TOT and one for
Elegant Elf. Took three hour to unload and pack what I could in first unit.
Than store everything in the third unit until Monday when I finish.

Had the truck for one day. We got all the shelving and clothing Z-rack, other rack, folding chair and some card table and a few table that they don't rent, moving dollies in the U-Haul truck. Than on Monday had to make three trip in my pickup truck along with three other ladies SUV to storage.
Box's and miscellaneous supplies.

Yesterday worked on big property, to get it ready for an Easter egg hunt.
This Saturday. Now it is rain like crazy there. I checked the radar.
Nothing like heavy rain. They live next to a big creek that flood.
I'm working there today so we will see.

Enjoy your Wednesday while having fun in Life...........

Good morning Claudie!

Lots of joy, plus get caught up w/the local gossip.

Had a nice deep sleep until after 1:45 AM. The GB servers were running fast in the wee hours. Finished my rounds 45 minutes faster than usual.

Test the speed of my ISP several time a day. Using this site for my tests. Choose the closest location to your area. Know there are 100's of other test sites. It is the GB servers that are often bogged down. Not my ISP, which is Verizon.

Got to get in a pleasant nap and still be rested and up by 6 AM. Enjoyed more epi's of Sons of Anarchy, Lost, The Walking Dead, Criminal Minds and Law and Order: SVU. Still laugh to the Andy Griffith Show (Mayberry), MASH, and Everyone Loves Raymond. Love a hearty laugh from nice healthy sit-com.

Went to the SSA office in Littleton. Got there at 11 AM in hopes it would be empty. Jammed w/a dozen folks. Just had to drop off a paper. Loved placing it in a box and walking right out the door.

Shopped for two items at Shaw's. Just wanted to earn 3 Monopoly games pieces. One was an "Instant Winner." Won two *free tickets" Need one ticket for each prize to win. Most won so far was 25¢ off their ultra high priced items.

Went to visit the assistant mgr of Littleton's Subway. Knew him from when he managed the pet dept at WM. Come to find out his wife retired from Subway as the store mgr and regional inspecter. My pal works at another retail store. Did get a Spicy Italian w/ all the veggies and extra lettuce on a wheat sub.

Am even more happy w/ Subway They did remove all the HFCS in their bread a few y/a. Now Subway has stated that they will be removing a chemical known as azodicarbonamide from its breads.

This chemical is commonly used to "increase elasticity in everything from yoga mats to shoe rubber to synthetic leather" and is used for the same reasons in bread.

The ingredient is used as a bread conditioner, to whiten the dough and allow sandwich bread to bake more quickly. Was always leery of chemicals added to foods. Especially the ones that can not be pronounced.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." — M.L. King Jr.

The temp is 17° (-8°C) with the high to be 43° (6°C).

Civil twilight is 5:58 AM EST. Night is 7:42 PM.

Sunrise: 6:27 AM. Set: 7:13 PM.

Length of day: 12h 45m. Length of visible light: 13h 44m. Tomorrow will be 3m 04s longer.

Have a fabulous day!

Hi Claudie,

Today looks like spring has definitely sprung today!

Temps were in the low to mid 70's with bright sunshine. Of course, the pollen levels will be creeping up soon. Starting to get those sneezing fits. However, so far none of that powdery stuff yet!

Nothing else new going on.

Good evening Claudie

Good to be back. Even sporadically.

Checking in and some may have noticed the two new pictures I've put up here at GB and FB as well. The one at FB is the first of Mrs. K and I in about a year. Needless to say I was excited to put it up the other evening. The one here is new as well. It's an updated picture of Emily and I and she is sitting on my lap. There were a couple more taken with my Mom photobombing us that are a bit blurry. I'll still try to post them here. I think you'll enjoy them.

Windy day here. Perfect for kite flyers everywhere. We didn't do it, but if we did, the weather would've been perfect for it. Temps up around 60 here and we'll even look to see 70 before the week is up. Until then, hold on to your hats. Literally.

Wow , raining again; actually we're getting some thunderstorms. Not sure how much rain we've gotten since 5 PM (when it all basically started), but it's supposed to continue off and on throughout the night. Hmmmm, looks like we might not be getting our yard mowed tomorrow either (too wet...again). We'll see.

Good evening, Mrs. Wrench, munchkins_mom, attitash, sandipaws, and kathybye!

Mrs. Wrench, glad you made it home safely. I KNOW you're happy about that! Will you be going to any doctors' appointments soon?

munchkins_mom, good luck trying to get everybuddy's hair cut before the weekend. Gosh! That's 6 people! Mom's appointment went real well this morning. All good results (see my post below from about 1 PM).

attitash, that's a GREAT grade on that test! How long before you have to take one of those tests again?

sandipaws, do those mallards just stay around the pond, or do they go off? I wonder if it's the same ones that keep coming back.

kathybye, back to work for you tomorrow, right? Glad you had a good time in Vegas!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good afternoon Claudie, Got home last night around 6:30 & have been busy putting 4 months worth of things away. Still have lots to do but taking my time because of my back problems.

Glad to hear your Mom's doctor appointment went well.

I'll stop by when I have time. Hope your day was a good one.

By the way yesterday Wrench drove 523 miles & we had a bright clear, sunny day. God answered our prayers for a safe return. I promised Wrench that next year I would not take as much stuff. He said I tell him that ever year. ya know it's a lady thing, we never no what we want to wear.LOL

Aaaaahhhh! A good visit to the cardiologist!

Mom's ultrasound of her carotids was good; in fact, it's been the same for the last 4 years! No changes at all. She had her protimes/INR checked and it was ALSO good; go back in a month and get it checked again. Yay! Also go back in 3 months for a check-up and do another ultrasound of the carotids in a year. :)

Hello, dick!

Wow! You're son's getting LOTS of big things right now! A new house and now a new truck! He probably didn't want to have to deal with getting his other truck fixed, I guess. We've always had a pick-up truck; you really need one when you live out in the country!

Hope you get to feeling better today.

Good morning Claudie,

Still moderately sore today. I guess this is going to take a few days to go away. Have had to revert to taking my Tramadol pain pills to fight this. They only help so much. Kind of glad that it was my last volunteer day of the year. Am hoping that I can have a change of condition over the summer to allow me to do things more easily next fall and winter. Will see how it works out.

My son who just bought a house was having some transmission trouble with his vehicle. He borrowed my truck for a few days while his fiancees vehicle was in the shop, and liked it enough that he dumped his vehicle last night and drove home a 2015 Silverado crew cab. Almost like mine, but a few less bells and whistles. (I like my toys!) With owning a new house, I am sure he will find the pickup truck helpful. Her car is a Ford Focus, so its not that big. He will come by later today to pick up his daughter and show us his new truck.

Good morning, grmoore, senile, Farful, and sandipaws!

grmoore, we got about ½-an-inch of rain yesterday from about 8 until 10. Sure was glad later in the day when the clouds all cleared out and the sun came through! About, RJ, not surprised either. Hope he does well in the draft. When is it anyway?

senile, thanks for stopping in!

Farful, we should have a nice day here with temps in the mid-70s; there's also a chance of more rain tonight. Good luck with your tax meeting!

sandipaws, yay for warm temps to go along with that rain! No snow, please, right?

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Tuesday! 44 degrees this morning. 2+ mile walk complete. I had to wear a fleece top this morning as it was a little breezy.

It rained pretty hard and steady during our morning commute but dissipated the closer we got to the city of Atlanta.

RJ Hunter, the star GSU junior guard and coach's son, has declared for the NBA draft. It didn't come as too much of a surprise as in spite of a few inconsistencies, he is probably ready and the time is ripe.

I have rehearsal this evening and will go over my piece to did a little deeper into a few sections. The concert will be on May 1st at 7:30p at Spivey Hall.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, JCTRAIL, WKGaser, yankie, MidnightSun, JM, org, hmcsretired07, attitash, Bus Jockey, TUrtLE, and scout!

MidnightSun, how nice that you got to spend your lunch with your 89-year-old lady friend. :)

JM, there are several different options for paying for the PSLs, including paying for it all at once. If not that, you have to pay a down payment, and then pay the rest off over a certain time period. Just another really BIG bill! :(

org, hmmmm, never heard that before.

attitash, good luck on today's test!

Bus Jockey, we should have a nice day here also with temps in the mid-70s; there's also a chance of more rain tonight.

TUrtLE, oh, wow! Lots and lots of those little jellyfish! I guess it's time to stay off the beaches!

scout, glad that it's finally getting warmer for you, esp. since it IS raining.

JCTRAIL, WKGaser, yankie, and, hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

A busy morning for me today. I'm not taking Mom to the store, but I WILL be taking her somewhere. She has an appointment with the cardiologist to get the results of an ultrasound she had done last week; she'll probably also have her protimes checked. Hoping for a reasonable amount of time spent in this office. Depending on the time, too, I may have to make one quick stop on the way home.

Good Morning Claudie,

Those blue jelly fish are back, washing ashore on Lincoln County beaches…thought to be associated with abnormally warm ocean temperatures…Julie Sacchetti photo.

If you want to read about them, here is an article from last August.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

On this date, in 1492, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain expelled Jews who would not accept Christianity.

Good morning, Claudie. How will they do the PSL seats, do you pay for it all at once or over a period of time? I believe that they could have done something different with how they are financing the stadium. Go Hawks.

Good morning Claudie!

Ice melts great during the day. Freezes at night. Like a sheet of glass.

Woke up 90 minutes sooner than usual yesterday morning. Got right to posting except found GB was very slow than usual to navigate thru the threads. Began 30 minutes earlier and finished 30 minutes later.

Took a pleasing nap and woke to see daybreak filled w/ snow in the air. Not big storm flakes, what is known here as ambient snow. It is a steady, yet a small amount that lasts throughout the day.

Watched many Netflix TV Shows and even Round 2 of watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. Did get to see Lost (2004–2010) Loved the suspense of wanting to know more. The survivors of a plane crash are forced to live with each other on a remote island, a dangerous new world that poses unique threats of its own.

Took a drive to the P.O. to get my mail, Shaw's for an 88¢ item for a Monopoly game ticket. Thern to McD's for a bacon clubhouse burger, no salt, no Mac sauce. (both have MSG mixed in.) Mgmt calls their salt, sauces, fries and etc w/their MSG additions "spices."

My 89 y/o lady windowed friend was there alone. Asked if she wanted company. We ate together and chatted for an hour. She is healthy and strong. Her good friend, whose hubby was a tournament player in my chess club, recovered at the 89 y/o's home from a surgery.

Now at home w/a nurse spending the night and often two nurses during the day.

One's health means everything. Especially in the later years. Good friends are like angels. They add blessings to your life.

The temp is 31° (-0.5°C) with the high to be 38° (3°C).

Civil twilight is 6:00 AM EST. Night is 7:41 PM.

Sunrise: 6:29 AM. Set: 7:12 PM.

Length of day: 12h 42m. Length of visible light: 13h 41m. Tomorrow will be 3m 05s longer.

Have a wonderful day!
