Good evening, Farful and sandipaws!

Farful, we saw the ending to the Denver/Seattle game. You just cannot give Peyton manning enough time to catch up! Too bad he never had a chance in OT.

sandipaws, it was a good day. :)

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good afternoon, dickc49, Scanman, and yankie!

dick, I just checked the Pats/Raiders score, and I see that the Pats won, 16-9. What does that make their record so far?

Scanman, it is really, really warm outside here right now; at least 85°, but maybe a little higher. Doesn't feel as bad as it could, though, b/c the dew point's still kinda low. After today, the highs will be in the high-70s/low-80s. Surely hoping so. I am ready for the hot weather to be over with! Hope your back's doing alright today.

yankie, thanks for stopping in!

Good afternoon Claudie,

Well the Pats have not started off too well. At least they are only down 3 points so far. The offense seems to be putting something together right now, but.... They are much flatter than I was hoping to see.

We are just about 80°F and the dew point is 70. After a few days of cool dry air, its WARM. Have the A/C on! Might be one of the last days for it. Looks to be about average temps for the upcoming week, but the dry spell continues. We need some rain!

Hello, hmcsretired07, grmoore, JM, and attitash!

hmcsretired, thanks for stopping in!

grmoore, have a safe trip back to the ATL!

JM, wow! Cool! Glad so many of your teams won for the last 2 weekends (except the Braves, who's magic number is now 2; 2 more games and they are officially eliminated from any post-season play). Hope that happens next weekend, too! Wouldn't it look great for the falcons to be 3 and 1? :)

attitash, glad you got the lawn mowed before the rains came; a day of rest sounds good, maybe watching Blue Jays/Yankees game. Might you try and catch a football game or 2 also?

Good morning Claudie.....heavy morning rain with thunder & lightning created power issues. All ok now but more thunderstorms expected this afternoon. High of 22°C/71.6°F. An indoor day...might catch the final Jays vs Yankees game. Able to mow the lawn yesterday with no problems except me pushing the lawnmower! Enjoy the last day of the summer.

Hi Claudie. I may not watch any games either. By the way, I had a great sport weekend, minus the Braves. Ooltewah High won 41 - 7 against our area rival. Morehouse beat Central State in Chicago by the score of 41 - 9. The Falcons, Ga Tech, and UGA had big wins. Two out three weekend have been like this.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Sunday! We got in a 2.7 miles walk this morning in the 70 degrees temperature with a little wind. It was nice to get out and get some exercise while enjoying the sights.

We had a nice dinner with dear friends from Atlanta at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company in Madeira Beach last night. They moved down here for employment about a year ago.

Today, we have lunch scheduled with my immediate and extended family clan in Wesley Chapel.

Tentative plans are to drive back home to the Atlanta area tomorrow morning.

Thanks again for your prayers, thoughts, and well-wishes.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, SteelPenny, MidnightSun, MusicTeacher, keywest, TUrtLE, and senile!

SteelPenny, yeah, I checked this morning (when I got on the computer) to see what WVU's score was, and saw where they lost to OK. At least they were tied at halftime. :)

MidnightSun, yikes! That's a long time to have to wait for the blood test results! :(

MusicTeacher, it's another cool morning with a temp of 58° and a dew point of 59°. Nice! :) Will visit your studio shortly.

TUrtLE, yes, I have noticed...traffic is down. Thanks for today's movie. :)

keywest and senile, thanks for stopping in!

Good Morning Claudie,
Regarding your comment yesterday about TL when you came in first thing in the morning, not usual anymore. Traffic is down.

Your Sunday movie is entitled "Water," and was created by Michelle Sherliza, OD. The music is "Eternal Love Affair," performed by Ernesto Cortazar.

Each frame is a quote for you to read. Notice the many autumn graphics.

Now, a word about the source. My first choice for movies is on Vimeo from Steve Politte. For variety I have used nethugs as a back up. I can no longer do that as nethugs has completely re-designed their website. We'll let it go at that. So, it looks like my back up will be youtube.

Be sure to view the movies full screen.

Have a blessed start to Autumn which begins on Monday at 10:29 P.M. EDT.

Good Evening, Claudie ♩ I hope you enjoyed your stay-at-home and cooler Saturday!

Thank you for your kind words for my Friday with having two great opportunities to enjoy time on my favorite Yamaha C7X Grand Piano in the store! Finding the right opportunities to play piano during work time is tricky, as work and serving our Customers well always come first before playing piano. But I realize how fortunate I am to have that privilege of being able to play on work pianos when the right opportunities are there.

Thankfully I had a great Saturday, as I shared at my Studio with pictures.

Good Night!

Good morning Claudie!

Can feel my heart pumping outta my chest. Looking forward to seeing the specialist.

Enjoyed getting my post rounds over early. Had the ISS flyover written on paper. Simply forgot about it until a few minutes after it orbited by. Other towns nearby were 27° & 28° (2-3°C) in the morning. My area saw 34° (1°C).

No frost was on the lawn when it was time to go outside. Watered the tomatoes and the flowers. Zinnias and the tomato plant leaves look quite wrinkled. The marigolds took the chill very well. Perennials are unbothered.

Had my brekky of raspberries and strawberries w/1% milk and Raisin Bran. It was only a half cup. Half of what is usually eaten. Then stir fried red yellow and orange bell peppers w/broccoli, carrots, onions and mushrooms.

Dropped an egg into the ceramic coated frying pan then added cold, precooked rice. Made some fried rice and filled up my tummy.

Checked for the weekly and w/e sales flyers. Saw 8 oz pkgs of mushrooms and celery hearts are $1, while broccoli crowns were 99¢. Passed on a marked down pkg of ribs for a choice $13 ($10.99 a lb) porterhouse steak marked down to ($2.99 a lb) to $3.32. Pink and fresh.

Headed to Weeks Hospital for a blood draw ordered by my PCP the day before. Great there were no peeps in the waiting room and there was only one ahead of me.

Was called 15 minutes later. Asked what tests were to be taken of my blood. The Filipino tech say he was taking 4 vial of blood, (15 ml) for all around testing, diabetes, along w/my Hepatitis Serological Profile and my HFE hereditary hemochromatosis DNA.

Shall know the results in 3 months during my follow up appointment in Dec. Stopped to get my mail at the PO, then returned home. Cooked the porterhouse au ju on low medium heat along w/lots of sliced baby bella mushrooms.

The forecast of partially cloudy skies never materialized. Saw overcast throughout the day. It was a serene beautiful drive. The CT River was calm w/8 ducks resting on the water. Lots of leaves are beginning to turn brilliant orange and red. Peak color should be in a week to 10 days.

Civil twilight is 6:03 AM EDT. Night is 7:14 PM.

Sunrise: 6:32 AM. Set: 6:45 PM.

Length of day: 12h 13m. Length of visible light: 13h 11m. Tomorrow will be 3m 4s shorter.

The temp is 64° (2°C), the high is to be 75° (14°C). There is a 50% chance of rain. It is lightly raining.

Have a splendid day!

Claudie - Not a good night as Oklahoma beats WVU 45-33 and Bob Stoops gets his 100th Big-12 victory. The first coach to do so. It was close at halftime 24-24. WVU defense still stinks.

Good evening, sandipaws and Robustus!

sandipaws, we still have the doors open since it's still pretty cool. Will probably close them all up shortly, though. Tomorrow's supposed to be pretty much like today. Nice. :)

Robustus, ooohhh, that's bad that your cold kept you from doing something on your day off. Hope you feel better tomorrow so you can go to church and work. Glad to hear you mom didn't hurt herself when she fell; you'll have to be careful when you take her out then. Going to Five Guys sounds like a good outing. Hope that can happen Monday or Tuesday.

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Hi Claudie!

Did make it to work last night. It was busy as I expected, but my cold didn't get in the way until later on last night and today.

Unfortunately, that meant I felt too bad to go do anything with Mom today. I was also reluctant in doing something after I got a call from her nurse this morning saying she fell. Somehow my mom got up and tried to walk and fell, but there wasn't any injuries. So, that was good to hear. Later on Mom got a phone to call me again and I told her about my cold. She was more like Mom this time. She completely understood that my health was important than risking it to get out there. I felt sorry that I really wanted to do something today with her. She just told me to get better and understood the situation. I asked about her fall and she was upset that she had a hard time getting to her call button again. But, I told her to be careful, too.

Anyway, I found a bottle of Dyslum cough syrup which had a little bit left in it which wasn't expired yet. So, I just took it. The coughing has reduced a little. But, I still feel it in my chest at some times and then break out in a sweat when a coughing spell hits. I think I saw a bottle of Mucinex somewhere. I hope it isn't expired and going to try that. If I feel strong enough, I might go out and make a trip to the store to get some OJ to get some vitamin C.

As for when I'm getting with Mom, hopefully I can squeeze in a visit before work tomorrow afternoon. It all depends how well I feel. I really don't want to miss church and definitely not work. I can't afford to call in and lose any hours at work. Fortunately, the weather is supposed to be nice, so working outside won't be a problem. So, I hope this "bug" gets through me quickly! By the way, I'm off Monday and Tuesday, so maybe we'll try the "Mom thing" again then. I really hope I can do something with her. She wants to eat out at Five Guys. (If you're familiar with place. It's a burger place where you can get burgers with almost any toppings you want on them. Then, they make their own fries which are fried in peanut oil. I know it's not the healthiest thing. But, it's sure is good!)

Hiya, dickc49 d TC!

dick, hoping that the Falcons do alright against MN next Sunday. I see NE plays Oakland tomorrow. Good luck to the Pats! It's about 80° here right now, and the dew point is 61°, so it feels pretty good; there's a nice little breeze that's helping, too. Not supposed to have a drop of rain at all until maybe next weekend. Frost? Nope! Nothing like that predicted here for many weeks to come (yet).

TC, thanks for stopping in!

Good afternoon Claudie,

Unless MN does something to change their defense, Atlanta should do OK. New England tore them apart. Am hoping for a NE win tomorrow. My daughter and Son-in-law will be at the game. We know some people with season tickets and they will be near the north end zone, and 20 rows back from the field. I've sat there before, great seats for that half of the filed. For the other end? You do better watching the Jumbo-tron!

Am reading a new book. "Bunker Hill" by Nathaniel Philbrick. Its a historical tome about the lead up to the American revolution based on the city of Boston and how the edicts of England affected them, and the settlers responses to it. Just got to the battle of Lexington. Still have about half the book to go. Its interesting.

We are around 70 or so. Might go a tad higher, and the dew point is up around 51-52 or so. Tomorrow will be upper 70's and dew points will hit the low 60's. Front at night will cool us some for Monday. Still nice enough to not need the A/C today at least.

Oh, my goodness gracious!

It is STILL gorgeous outside! About 75°, I'd say, and now the sun is coming through. The dew point is about 64°. What's even better is that, with the doors open, there is a breeze coming right through the house, making the temp inside (upstairs) only 75°, too. Wonderful!

Hello, grmoore, Farful, and SteelPenny!

grmoore, good to hear things are just rolling along. Will you be staying there much longer?

Farful, if you go to visit your friend in Clinton, will you also go to the dealership open house?

SteelPenny, great news that you actually get to see the WVU game on TV tonight! Since it's going to be on FOX, I just might check into it, too!

Claudie - I think I'll flip over to FoX this evening
Oklahoma is playing West Virginia in Morgantown WV.
Oklahoma is ranked #4 and has had problems with WVU in the 2 previous 2 games. Two years ago they went into Morgantown and 'escaped' with a 50-49 win and last year beat WVU 13-7.
The honor and bragging rights of the Big-12 are on the line now.
Especially since WVU lost their first game this year by only 10 points to Alabama (on the road) and blew out Towson (54-0), then took Maryland by 3 at the final gun (40-37). Last year's game with Maryland resulted in a 37-0 win by Maryland. Maryland still got their 37 points this year, but gave up 40.
I may watch the Cowboys on Sunday vs St Louis, mainly because St Louis has 2 WVU wide receivers on the team.

attitash, hope you get your lawn mowed before the rains come. Here, it's cloudy right now, but that's helping keep it so much cooler. We'll see if the sun burns these clouds off later in the day.

TUrtLE, I knew you usually got up later on Saturdays, but I was surprised that I was the first one posting after MT's early, early morning post.

JM, uuummm, don't know if I'll watch any games tomorrow or not. It kinda depends which ones are being shown.

Good Evening, Claudie ♬ Congratulations on your favorite team, the Falcons, winning!

I hope you had a restful and enjoyable stay-at-home day today. With my new job, I miss those stay-at-home days, now that my weekends get busier than ever.

Thankfully my Friday went well with enjoying time before and during work with playing piano on my favorite Yamaha C7X, a slow day at work with only four Piano Sheet Music Customers, lots of down time to do other work tasks, and assisting my Manager John out during his busy times with prospective Piano Buyers at the store. All in all, a very nice day today.

Looking forward to this weekend!

Good Night and Sweet Dreams!

Good morning Claudie!

Went out at 10 AM yesterday to see vast frost on the lawn in the shade. Removed the sheets to see some of the leaves wrinkled and frostbitten. Gave each plant ½ gallon of water. Then drove to my 10:45 Dr's appointment.

Saw lots of frost in the fields. Folks that had uncovered tomato plants had leaves that were cooked spinach. Many picked the tomatoes and left the plants for the freezing temps. Hope to extend my growing season for another two weeks.

This area saw a low of 26° (-3°C) yesterday morning. Nearby areas saw 24° (-4°C). Saw the ISS orbit by at 4:10 AM. It is the brightest object in the night sky, now that the Moon is small in its waning crescent.

One can see the H shape w/its solar panels with the naked eye. It is the size of one's little finger nail with their arm outstretched. The usual view is 3 to 5 minutes.

A long time considering it is averaging 17,227 mph (27,724 kph) 205 miles (330km) w/a max distance of 255 miles (410 kph) above the Earth. The ISS orbits 15.5 times each day. About 93 minutes to orbit. The ISS is bigger and brighter than any star, except the Moon.

There were a dozen folks in the waiting room. Began to read the Sept issue of WebMD. 5 minutes later, the nurse called. The others were there before me. There are 5 doctors to see their patients.

Vitals were BP 138/78, 95% O2, HR 82 /min. We discussed my borderline diabetes, osteoarthritis of my rt hip, left ventricular, increasing borderline hypertension, and SVT (Supraventricular Tachycardia).

Know that after the dental and hip replacement surgery hiking and rapid elevation gain will restore my vitals to more healthy numbers. Have an appointment w/a SVT cardiology electrical impulse specialist from Dartmouth Medical Center at Weeks Hospital in Lancaster in two weeks.

The doc will test and discuss my heart's electrical system. It doesn't work right and causes the heart to beat very fast. The heart beats at least 100 beats a minute and may reach 300 beats a minute for seconds to a few minutes. More tests will be performed. Perhaps surgery as well. Will know more then.

Civil twilight is 6:01 AM EDT. Night is 7:16 PM.

Sunrise: 6:31 AM. Set: 6:47 PM.

Length of day: 12h 16m. Length of visible light: 13h 14m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 39° (4°C), the high is to be 57° (14°C) in sunny skies.

Plan to watch the ISS orbit by at 4:55 AM in the NNW sky.

Have a tremendous day!

Claudie, oh yes we do. This peach cobbler magically keeps well until Saturday when we can share it.

Good Night!

Good evening, attitash, TUrtLE, and JM!

attitash, boy, you sure got a lotta activity in today! I am guessing, from what you said, that you have Saturday and Sunday off? Since you said it's supposed to rain, will you be doing anything special?

TUrtLE, had a good little visit with Daughter; a little over an hour. I see in TL that GJ made it there. I guess you and I don't get to split the peach cobbler now. :(

JM, I love our seats, too! That's why I keep telling hubby I am NOT putting in for a seat change! I really like the people who sit around us, too. As for the Vikes...I asked Son about them; he said we should do alright against them now that Adrian Peterson's not allowed to play. We shall see. Sure would be nice to go 3-1. :)

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Hi Claudie. I love those seats, we had a blast. Everything went well. Now, we have more than a week to get ready for the Vikings.

Claudie, I hope you had a good visit with your daughter.
One wheelbarrow full of clippings and that's it, too hot. Off to dump it in the field and then I'll water my flowers.

So far no GJ which means we may get to split the peach cobbler.

Good afternoon Claudie....temps warmed up to a cool 14&dgC/57.2°F after overnight frost. Had to scrap the car. Played some morning golf(the only one in a T shirt & shorts) & then took the kayak out for a few hours(took my fishing pole...caught & released 3 fish). Made the most of the day as the weekend looks wet. Have a great day

Good afternoon, kathybye, Robustus, and pink!

kathybye, hope you got lots of the cleaning done. Is there a lot to do? Way to go on winning that $15 gift card! That's just like a REALLY big coupon!

Robustus, hope you're feeling better so you can go to work today. Any idea, if you're able to take your mom out tomorrow, where you'd go? Maybe an eating place?

pink, so that means you didn't get any more rain, right? I know you probably don't need any more right now.

Well, I AM going out somewhere after all! I decided to go down to Daughter's house and visit for an hour or so. :)

Good afternoon Claudie!

Great win last night from your Falcons. I fell asleep last night due to not feeling so well. However, I woke up and checked the score online and couldn't believe it was 35-0 at halftime. I didn't realize the Bucs are that bad. Lovie Smith has a lot of work to do. I see Devin Hester, the former Bear from Lovie Smith's former team, is back being the dangerous kick returner as he was in the past. Also, setting that record. I remember when I was excited to see the Colts in the Super Bowl against the Bears. What you know, the Colts with the opening kickoff kicks to Hester and he returns it all the way making the fastest score in SB history.

Anyway, as I mentioned briefly I am not feeling so "hot" today. I woke up last night feeling stuffy and achy. I knew something might be coming since my throat felt scratchy when I got up yesterday. Usually it is about that time of year I catch that first fall cold. So, I hope it doesn't get too bad to get over to see and/or take Mom out tomorrow. However, I can't afford to call in sick to work but I think I can make it. It is only from 4-9. However, I fear since it's Friday and an odd-numbered day which means an EBT day. So, we could be busy.

I got to get my chicken out of the oven and hopefully it will be done in time to eat before I leave for work.

Have a good afternoon!

FINALLY ENJOYING A DAY OFF!!

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Now, my only problem is cleaning
all the items that were not taken care of while gone (grocery shopping),
laundry, etc.), but I have plenty of time to get chores done. :))

BTW: One of the fun events that happened to me was that Trader Joes (TJ's) called to say that I had won a raffle. Basically you get to place your raffle ticket when you come in with cloth or reuseable bags. I was allowed to spin a wheel and won a $15 gift card!!
($5-25) are numerical values on the wheel).

Got several things done this morning that were on my to-do list; hmmmm, should I do any more after I have a sandwich for lunch? Maybe. :)

Hello, sandipaws, dickc49, grmoore, Farful, and Mrs. Wrench!

sandipaws, the Falcons DID end up winning. :)

dick, I like those cooler temps you're having. It's supposed to be in the low 80s here for the rest of the day. As for the Falcons last night...well, you gotta remember the team that they were playing isn't really good at all. Hope the Falcons do just as good a week from Sunday when they play the Vikes in MN.

grmoore, hope you get everything taken care of.

Farful, sounds like you got a lot of good info at the Senior Expo. I like the idea of that free massage. :)

Mrs. Wrench, I have/had no plans to go out today; just doing things around the house and even a few outside. There sure is a nice breeze out there. :) Wow! You are as busy as a bee today!
