Good morning Claudie!

Have lots of small sticks remaining. May have to rake the property.

The ISS orbit by early tonight thru the w/e. 8:21 on the East Coast. Minutes later in the Idwest. Times for all satellite orbits over North America.

Enjoyed finishing my rounds earlier than usual. Watched the new to Netflix, "Criminal Minds." Enjoyed seeing this show when it came out, until the digital signal had less wattage and could not reach the mtns.

Began watching "Patton" (171 min) w/the Great George C. Scott, also Karl Malden co-stars. Saw it many y/a, want to see this epic film again. Patton puts his foot down and expects all to act like a soldier in WWII. Including the wounded.

Went out when the sun rose above the trees. Used the scissors to trim we down all perennial leaves that are blocking the 6 new perennials. Saw the echinacea,only 4-5 inches tall, was being shaded.

Needed to cut out a direct sun to allow its roots to travel as far as possible by first frost. Have room for 2 more in a different spot. The butterflies enjoy the flowers for nectar immensely.

Have a highbush blueberry stil w/green berries. Should get another pint or more in a few weeks. Strawberries are producing more fruit, now the the canopy of grapevines have been cut and removed.

Wildflower are doing great. Tossed some rugged twisted branches from the collection gathered from the storm some days ago on top of the all the wild flowers. Do not want an animal using the soft tilled soil as comfortable bedding.

Felt ambitious and re-mowed the back of the house done a few days ago. Now all the lawn is cut to the same length. Nice to do most of this in the shade. Like the cooler temps and no rain are slowing it growth.

Poured on deep tanning oil, sat in the sun,and enjoyed the read and breeze. Nice strong uv rays. Temp reached a pleasing 77° (25°C). It is the highest temp in the past 30 days.

Civil twilight is 5:25 AM EDT. Night is 8:12 PM.

Sunrise: 5:56 AM. Set: 7:41 PM.

Length of day: 14h 45m. Length of visible light: 15h 47m. Tomorrow will be 2m 50s shorter.

The temp is 58° (14°C), the high is to be 79° (26°C) in clear skies.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Tyler Consolidated had a 2013 enrollment of 416 students in the High School. The Middle School had 336 students. If no one relocates, Dylan's 6th grade will graduate 74 kids in 2021. It's the smallest class they've had since Tyler Consolidated opened in 1993.

Dino's Jukebox playing tomorrow night. Going to 1964 for the H artist. I'll tell you this much, it'll be "Something Good." Rain has cleared out. Temps staying in the mid 80s through the weekend.

Good night/evening Claudie!

Pretty much the same thing today. The workout went well. Feeling a little soreness from it, but still it feels good.

Mom was a little quiet. But, surprised to see me again today since it's Wed. She thought I wouldn't have time to visit since I wanted to get home in time for church this evening. However, as I was there, my dad called demanding some food bought to him. I mentioned that I can't afford to go to do that for him and he got mad and hung up. So, all is good with Mom, but not with Dad.

I'm now off work until Friday. Feels weird to work three days straight which I haven't done for a while. I haven't gotten a chance to see what the schedule looks like for next week yet. I hope more hours or at least what I have for the this week. I hope the days are the same. I like that because it corresponds with my workout plan perfectly. I workout on the machines for 3 days and then take a day to rest. Then, on the 4th day, I hit that Express Circuit workout which I'll do Friday.

I guess that's all for now.

Wow! That sure WAS quite a water bill you had! :(

Hoping your dad gets better and out of the hospital.

Time for me to sign out for the night.

CA is having the water shortage because of their lack of rain, and the huge population who live there.

It appears people here do conserve water because it is so expensive. When both my hubby & I were gone due to my Mom's passing away, (3 plus weeks) our automatic watering system went on the "fritz"> Luckily, Hubby fixed it but because we almost lost the front lawn (50% of it are shrubs and orange tree), we Overwatered this month. It was the greatest $$ amt we have ever had $150 for water alone, $200 w/sewage and garbage service.
All of the grass and shrubs look great now, so we have backed off the extreme watering.

BTW
My father went back in hospital, and they are trying to stabilize his glucose level, and feet swelling. The pneumonia has taken a toll; please keep him in your prayers.

Good afternoon, dickc49 and Mrs. Wrench!

dick, glad you got the computer 'fixed' even though it meant doing the Restore. I think I have had to do that once...forever ago. Have a good PT session today.

Mrs. Wrench, a 45 minute wait to see the doctor? That's probably about 'normal,' sad to say. We'll see how long Mom and I have to wait tomorrow to see her cardiologist. The appointment's at 10. Then next Wednesday she has a different appointment with another doctor at 01:45. Again...we'll see how long we have to wait to actually see the doctor. Hope neither one's too long. <crosses fingers> When do you have to go back to that doctor to get the results of the blood work?

Good afternoon Claudie, sounds like you day went well & you got everything done.

I had a doctors appointment at 9 he never came in until 9:45, I think that was one of the reason I left him 2 years ago, plus the office help messing up on my prescriptions.One reason I went back is because I like him & he doesn't rush you & he is a Cardiologist which I need. I can't believe all the blood work he wants done. Since I won't go back to see him until we get back from Florida I'm going in the morning for the blood work in case he wants to change any of my meds.I told him I have been very tired & can't seem to get things done so he's checking a lot of things. Wrench says I need to stay off the computer & I'd get done.LOL

Good afternoon Midnight,

Well, after following all the pointers in the PC World article AND the corresponding links to Microsoft, I still had a bum video issue. I had to resort to system restore! Fist time I have ever had to use that feature. <disgust>. Normally I can figure it out, or Microsoft has the answer. Not this time! At least all is better. Now to go back and re-run the updates for office, then the other ones, one at a time so I can check after each to see if any other ones caused it. Will do it later as I go to PT at 4PM. SIGH.

Will get my further PT schedule this afternoon.

Yay! A good morning out! I sure needed this day after yesterday morning's 'stuff' at the PCP's office! :)

There WAS a minor glitch at today's lab visit, but it was cleared up VERY fast! Plus we got there at 9:05 for the 9:15 appointment and NOBUDDY was waiting! Mom was next (called back at 9:10). We were in and outta there so fast that I had Mom back home and i was on my way to a store by 9:30! :)

Hello, senile, JM, sandipaws, Lighting10K, kathybye, attitash, Farful, dickc49, and MusicTeacher!

senile, thanks for stopping in!

JM, I'll have to get back with you on the dates to meet you; I need to check with Daughter to see what a couple of the Saturdays are like (Emma does cheerleading for Rec and the games are on Saturdays, but I don't know what time).

sandipaws, not a drop of rain here at all so far today. It's a bright sunshiny day; HOT and humid, too. :(

Lighting, nope! Falcons aren't on the road for the next 3 games. They're home this Saturday, then they ARE away for the last preseason game on Thursday, the 28th; the first 'regular' game is on Sunday the 7th against New Orleans, and it's at home.

kathybye, yes, I saw the flooding on TV In Phoenix and thought of you. Are you close to any of it? Weren't you guys having a serious shortage or something before that storm (or maybe I was thinking of some other place)?

attitash, so no special vacation activity for today?

Farful, our hummingbird feeder will probably need to be redone this weekend. The birdies aren't eating as much and as frequently as in past years. I can remember them going through what was in the feeder in only a day or two; now it's been over a week and there's still some in it.

dick, so you were able to find a physical therapist you were okay with? How often do you go? Hope you can get that monitor to work sooner than later.

MusicTeacher, will look at your FB pix in a bit.

Good Morning, Claudie ♪ So sorry about the lack of ordering enough of the right blood tests from your Mom's Doctor, that you have to return your Mom to the Doctor's Office for another round of blood tests. Have a good morning visit with taking your Mom to the Doctor's Office, errands on the way back home, and good remainder of the day at home!

Thank you for letting me know you will √ out my FB pictures from Church Youth Camp later on today. I will be adding the remainder of the Church Youth Camp pictures today.

Yes, you are correct! I do have a lot of pictures from our weekend at Church Youth Camp. So far I have only finished uploading Day 1 of the camp pictures. I hope to finish organizing and uploading the rest of the camp pictures today.

This morning I will continue organizing and uploading the remainder of our Church Youth Camp 2014 pictures on my Photobucket and Facebook Albums, as well as copying them to two flash drives for sharing with our two Pastors. Today at noontime my Mom and I will be attending our weekly Prayer Meeting at Church. After Church we will do errands and tasks at home as needed.

Have a Sweet Wednesday!

Good morning Claudie,

Went to Plymouth yesterday. My back did pretty well as I had hoped. My sister and I visited with her friend who does research work on Mayflower ancestors. We looked at four lines of descendancy I was interested in. We found two did not pan out, but found two others that seem quite sound. I will apply this weekend or there abouts for formal acceptance to the society with the line that looks to be the easiest to prove. The line with my wife involved did not pan out. It appears that one of the men involved had two wives. The first born son was from the first wife, not the Mayflower wife. Right guy, wrong woman. I did have a very good time looking around the library and do wish I lived closer as it has a really great supply of books to research things in.

Got home to find my new monitor for my new PC had finally arrived. I hooked it up and could not get it to work right. Plugged it onto my old PC to test it, and it works quite fine. Looked a bit father on my new PC to discover that the video card is pegged as "having a problem" bu windows, so its driver is disabled. It WAS working just a week ago. Looking at Turtles notes and links, I suspect that the Microsoft updates may be at the root of my issue. Thanks to Turtles sharp eyes I might be able to fix it without calling people. I do remember a "double boot" the other day. Windows has a default behavior of rebooting on errors. I usually change this so that it just stops and displays the error. I have not done that with this PC yet. I am guessing the driver clashed with the update, and got disabled. Without the driver, the new monitor cannot communicate properly with the video card and negotiate the right display settings. ARRRRGGGGHHH! Something else I need to do that I should not need to do! This week is becoming a PITA!

PT this afternoon. Hope you got Mom to the lab and back OK. Too bad when others mess up your day or week!

Back to work for me today!

Did you see PHX on national news about the flooding? Some areas had significant flooding w/people having to be airlifted out of their homes or cars? Some made poor decisions to drive through washes, but for others it was just Mother Nature.

Hope you finish with Mom & get your errands run today. Hubby is still home so have some company.

Good morning, grmoore,

Sure don't like the temperature predictions for the next few days. :(

Yes, another Braves win. Too bad they couldn't have done better earlier; well, maybe when they went on that last west coast trip. Doing better in the wild card standings, though. I guess I'm pessimistic; I don't think they'll do too well even if they DO get into the playoffs. I hope they surprise me, though.

Have a good eye appointment!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Wednesday! 73 degrees this morning.

Our first rehearsal went well last night; it will be a great concert season.

Good to see the Braves won again. The Nationals are also on a tear and we lost too many games lately. It's sure looking like we'll have to obtain a playoff berth via the wildcard race. We next attend a game on August 31st.

I have my semi-annual eye appointment this afternoon so it's off to work this morning and travel back south this afternoon. The building management is completing renovations so it's a bit of a "disaster" on our floor. I would telework today but need to go in to unpack moving crates to put back together my office.

Off to it.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Dino, MidnightSun, yankie, hmcsretired07, TUrtLE, and scout!

Dino, the Meet the Teams event sounds like a fun event for everybuddy. Yeah, really small band for a high school. How many kids go to that high school?

MidnightSun, wow, lots of tree debris on the yard. Must have been some very strong winds after all the other day.

yankie and hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

TUrtLE, another blonde joke! <shakes head> Thanks for the morning chuckle and grin. :)

scout, no rain here; well, maybe the pop-up stuff. Coming into some really, really hot temps for us; the hottest of this summer, they say. Well, I can do without them.

Well, another early morning out for me. B/c of a screw-up at the PCP's office (lab work) yesterday, I have to take Mom to the cardiologist's office (thank goodness, just across the street from her place!) for some MORE bloodwork; gotta get blood drawn to check her sodium and potassium at a 9:15 appointment (for tomorrow's appointment). Hopefully it won't take long, and then I'll take Mom back home before I continue with my planned errands. Hoping for no glitches today. :)

Blonde jokes continue:

Psychiatrist: "Don't you have a cell phone?"

Blonde: "They're too expensive, so I did the next best thing: I put a mailbox in my car."

Good morning Claudie!

Got a written prescription for glasses.My first in 40 years. Use the same place for glasses since a kid. Fellows grandfather opened the biz back in the day. Own three pairs, No need for any more.

Saw an episode of "Orange is the New Black" yesterday morning. A privileged NY'er is sent to a women's prison for a crime committed in her past. In the Emmy Award winning comedy/drama series.

Two seasons of this show are on Netflix, the producer of the series, and a 3rd season is being filmed for release next July.

Went outdoors early. Ripped or dug crab grass that was beginning to grow in my gardens. Also pulled the jewel weed that grows so rapidly.

Also cut down many sword like 2" leaves and stalks of crocosmia lucifer that the rain laid flat a few days ago. It was smuffing out the sunlight of neighboring perennials and would have killed the lawn.

Found room that was 2' x 1' for a dozen flowers. Hightailed it to Sullivan Greenhouses where two 6 pack mixed marigold were on sale at half price. Two for $2.50.

Returned home to see how root bound the marigolds were. Used the blunt blade of a scissors to twist out the tangled roots. This method worked nicely and quickly.

Have the assorted colors of the dozen in the ground. Sprayed two small blocks of wood w/deer and rabbit repellent and added two scent containers on either ends.

Moved the front half of the lawn. The amount of twigs and leaves amazed me from the rain storm a few days ago. The mower did get only half of them. Will have to pick the twigs by hand. 100's of them.

Sat in the sun, added lots of deep tanning lotion, and read a book. Could hear something in the distance thrashing around in the forest. In fact looked up several times. It was a racoon, which was promptly chased away.

Civil twilight is 5:23 AM EDT. Night is 8:14 PM.

Sunrise: 5:54 AM. Set: 7:43 PM.

Length of day: 14h 48m. Length of visible light: 15h 50m. Tomorrow will be 2m 50s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C), the high is to be 79° (26°C) in clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Me too on the computer issues.
Tonight was the annual Meet the Team event at Tyler Consolidated showcasing the marching band and the various sports teams for the Fall season. Football, Golf, Cross Country, and Boys' and Girls' Soccer were all represented. The Soccer teams each almost outnumbered the football team. The band numbers only 30 members this year. Down considerably.

Warm evening. Temps in the low 70s. Ideal for August.

TUrtLE, all done!

Robustus, see how happy you're making your mom, just going there, even for 20 minutes (like today)? I'm telling ya...it doesn't have to be much! As for your dad, maybe you need to keep staying away for awhile and let him fend for himself.

yankie, thanks for stopping in!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Hi Claudie!

No Wendy's today! Got the workout in again this afternoon. Everything seemed to much better today. However, today is the day I work out my legs so that is usually my strongest area. I saw a fellow co-worker in there. I went up to start talking to him and the trainer walked by and greeted us. He ended up talking to my friend asking about how his workout is coming along. Then, I pulled out the ragged sheet I've been using. The trainer commented how it looked like I lost a bunch of weight since I started coming. So, that was encouraging!

Went over to see my afterwards. She looked like I woke up her up, but had a big grin on her face when she saw me. She smiled, and laughed and said "Guess what? I ate all those grapes you bought me yesterday!" She seemed to be in good spirits since I'm there and as usual, enjoyed my company. Unfortunately, due to the workout and busy day at work, I only stayed for 20 minutes.

As for my dad. I wish I could say anything positive or new. Still pestering me to bring him some groceries since he's broke and out of food. I am little upset at a few things with him. I'm not trying to be mean but, I need to keep my distance from him for a little while. Hopefully, he can find a way to take care of himself rather than being dependent on me for every single thing!

Okay! Now I have another lab appointment set up...at the cardiologist's office for 9:15 tomorrow morning (it's the office that's practically across the street from where she lives). I'll pick up Mom, take her to the lab, get that done (hopefully won't take TOO long; surely not as long as THIS morning!), take her back home, and then go on with my planned errands. Hopefully the trip to the lab won't throw me off TOO much!

Good afternoon, TUrtLE and Mr1lung!

TUrtLE, thanks for the directions/instructions!

Mr1lung, welcome to Claudie's Place! Come back and visit again when you can!

Claudie, what a mess at the doc's office. Sorry about that. :-(

:(

Didn't start off a good morning out, though, I got Mom in good time and we got to the doctor's office at 9:20 AM. B/c of one thing or another, we didn't leave until 10:05! Grrrrr! They also wouldn't check the protimes since, they said, we were coming in next Wednesday for an appointment ("you can do that then since you'll already be here;" But we're already there NOW, I wanted to tell them!); PLUS they weren't checking the sodium or potassium b/c that's what the cardiologist checks. Grrrrrrr again! So now I'm trying to get another lab for tomorrow morning (before Thursday's cardiologist appointment) so we can have the sodium and potassium numbers for the appointment.

Oh, good grief!

Anyway after we finally left the lab, we went to WM and everything was great from then on!

Just waiting now for a return call from the cardiologist's office.

Hello, TUrtLE, Scanman, Farful, and MusicTeacher!

TUrtLE, oh, dear! I have 3 of the 4 updates installed. I hope I can follow the directions to uninstall them. Thanks for the info.

Scanman, usually I don't like calls that early either, though, Daughter has called me before when she's on her way to work (about 7:45).

Farful, we're still getting several hummers visiting daily.

MusicTeacher, hope you can get your pictures all downloaded. I can imagine you have a lot of them.

Good Morning, Claudie ♩ That was nice of your Granddaughter Alhana to call you this morning to say Hello before going to school!

Have a great day with your Mom of getting her to the Doctor's Office for blood tests, WM, returning her home, and then doing your own errands before returning home.

Thankfully I did have a productive, stay-at-home day yesterday with putting away camping goods and housekeeping! It even helped that yesterday's Student rescheduled to today.

Today I look forward to a full day of doing tasks at home, organizing and uploading the Church Youth Camp pictures for sharing online, and errands as needed. Tonight I have one Violin Student to teach.

Have a Lovely Tuesday!

Mornin' Claudie!

Nice way to start the day, but when my phone rings before 8 AM it's never been a good thing. Glad yours was!

Good morning, grmoore, sandipaws, and three30!

grmoore, it sounds like a great day for you yesterday, though, it WAS busy! Hoping the Braves can win again tonight; good to beat the Bucs...helps in the wild card standings.

sandipaws, thanks for the congrats on my GB anniversary! :) Porch time this afternoon? Maybe, if it's not too warm and muggy.

three30, aaahhh, the Beatles, tight?

BBL, y'all!

Hi Claudie!

I was in Ipava, IL the other day and ran into an fireman. He had an hourglass and in his pocket was a portrait of the queen. I'll say one thing, his fire engine was sure clean.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Tuesday! 72 degrees this morning.

Yesterday was relaxing but not without some "busyness." I started my day with a recheck at the Orthopedic doctor getting a steroid shot to the wrist and a referral to a month's worth of physical therapy to begin in September (since I'm on vacation the last week of August). This early escapade was followed by a trip to the vet for "138's" last series of shots and checkup. He's doing fine (didn't like the shots ~ but most "children" don't!). I had lunch with my son at noon(ish) and then capped off the day by attending the annual "state of Georgia State Athletics" and sportsmanship and ethics meeting at Georgia State. All-in-all, a great day.

I also took in two (exercise) walks, getting back to the house from the second one just before it poured rain, and finished off the night by watching the Braves beat the Pirates.

Tonight, I have my first orchestra rehearsal of the season.

Now, it's off to breakfast and work.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Robustus, sandipaws, Dino, HappyHiker, MidnightSun, JM, hmcsretired07, scout, senile, attitash, and TUrtLE!

Robustus, glad to hear that you got a workout at the gym in. Having that Wendy's sandwich, though, undid all your work. :( I know your mom enjoyed those grapes you took her. :)

Dino, hope those computer issues at your job get taken care of soon.

HappyHiker, well, at least the Dodgers are still in first place! The Braves helped themselves in the wild card race by beating the Pirates last night. Maybe again tonight, too.

MidnightSun, so you got new glasses; did I understand you to say you're getting 3 new pair or you already HAVE 3 pair? I'm confused.

JM, we're going to have to figure out a time to meet up to get you those tickets; it might be crazy, though.

scout, well, I'll be darned! It IS my 9 year GB anniversary! I didn't even realize it! Thanks for the congrats!

attitash, thanks for the congrats, too. :) Is your wife going on all these day trips with you? How was the kayaying yesterday?

TUrtLE, blonde jokes! LOL! Thanks for the morning laugh...and the congrats on my 9 year GB anniversary!

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

Whoo! Just got a scary surprise. It's about 7 AM here and the phone rings. Yikes! I figured it was either Mom or Daughter. Instead it was.....Alhana (her mom was there with her and had given her permission to call)! She just wanted to say that she hoped I had a good day. :) We talked for a few minutes and then hung up. A nice way to start the day.

I'm picking up Mom a little earlier this morning b/c she has to go to the doctor's office to do blood work for an appointment next week. Since it's a fasting lab, we're going earlier and then she can eat something on the way to WM (she didn't want to stop somewhere). Hoping, too, that I can get her back home for another 10:30 activity. After that, for me, I might have a coupla places to stop, and then it's on back home. Not too bad a morning, but an earlier one.

Good Morning Claudie,
Happy 9th GB Anniversary!!!

Jonathan Seagull from Ken Gagne, posted on the County web site.

For those of you with a good memory you will remember back when, I said that blonde jokes would continue. It's that time!

Once a blonde went to the library to get a book.

A few days later, she returns and says to librarian at the counter, "This book was very boring.

It had too many characters and too many numbers, so i would like to return it."

The librarian says to the other librarian, "So here is the person who took our phone book!"

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Good morning Claudie....a sunny day ahead with a high of 24°C/75.2°F. Off to run my son to a dental apt & then off for a hike. My wife will decide where we will go to follow the path. Happy 9th anniversary with GB....a real commitment! Have a great day.

Got the frame for the medicine cabinet sanded and the 1st coat of finish on. Mrs. Scoutmaster put more mud on the new piece of drywall. That is ready to sand then get the new light up!

Happy 9 year GB Anniversary!
