Good afternoon Claudie,

The deck is done. Took me three trips out to finish it. A fourth trip was made to shovel the hydrant across the street. We are now getting an inch or two. Will push it off the drive quickly later. Can also scrape the stairs quickly afterward. Will leave for Maine after 5PM or so and hope to get there after about 4 hours. Will stop somewhere for a quick dinner. Its the youngest daughters birthday, so we will pick up marinated steak tips from out favorite meat store on the way north to cook on the BBQ up there. Her birthday wish. Have a volunteer day on Sunday. Hope to get done a bit early so I can get back home in time for the kickoff. More snow Monday and Wednesday. The Monday one, so far, does not look too bad. The Wednesday one they are not predicting amounts yet.

Hi again Claudie,

i talked with the most helpful person, Tracy, at Kroger Customer Service this morning. I phoned as I wanted to verify that my 600 points are good on the last day of the month since I'm planning to go south in the morning to buy gas at a real Fred Meyers, not Shell. Yes, they are, but she also volunteered to carry them over another month so I wouldn't feel under pressure to go tomorrow. I thanked her, but I am still going.
She also told me that since it's Friday if I log in there will be a free coupon available. I used to get the link in an email from them, but this is not the same. You go to Fred's web site. I don't know if Kroger for you would be the same or not.

Hiya, kathybye and Farful!

kathybye, hope it doesn't take the insurance company too long to approve you getting an MRI; take it easy this weekend in Las Vegas, but have fun, too!

Farful, Keebler cookies? Yum!! Hope the store's not too busy when y'all go.

Hi, Claudie & friends:
I saw Dr. Zeman yesterday; Unfortunately, my Dr. recommended an MRI to see if there is a tear in the meniscus. SO.. I am waiting for insurance to approve the MRI.

Then, I wait for results of the MRI. If I need to have surgery, I will.

I have great confidence in this orthopedic surgeon; He's a friend of my foot Dr., and did my hubby's shoulder surgery 11 months ago.
My hubby is doing very well w/his shoulder, as he took time for rehabilitation (PT) with the shoulder. He also took 8 wk. from work, even though the company wanted him to come back sooner.

From my friend who recently had knee surgery, no biggie, just TCOB.
However, I've never had surgery since a pin placed in my rt foot 12 years ago.

Hubby & I are going to Las Vegas (Did not know it was SuperBowl weekend when I booked the stay) at our Timeshare! It will be fun to get away, but much busier than usual. Luckily, there Is little pain w/my injury, just swelling. I will need to be cautious (no walking up/down strip). Where the timeshare is located, everything is fairly close, shopping, restaurants, and of course, the casino. :) I had wanted to go to the outlet mall, but this can wait!

Good morning, WKGaser, jjdm, Dino, MidnightSun, pink, JM, org, scout, TUrtLE, and grmoore!

jjdm, sounds like everything is working out well for you and your mom; so glad to hear that. :)

Dino, aaahhh, yes, "Rock Around the Clock," though I didn't actually hear it til many years after it was released. Thanks for sharing.

MidnightSun, get much more snow?

JM, aaahhh, the Hawks have the best record in basketball now? Great news! I knew they had the best record in the Eastern Conference, but thought that somebuddy in the Western Conference was ahead of them by a few percentage points.

org, aaahhh, Hitler! :(

scout, thanks for the Friday music!

TUrtLE, such good quotes today. :)

grmoore, good going to the GSU guys on their win against UTA last night; bad news for the women, though. Bundle up when you do your walk tonight; it's windy!

WKGaser and pink, thanks for stopping in!

Staying home again; will be doing some household stuff today, though (as opposed to NONE yesterday!).

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Friday! 40 degrees this morning. In early this morning as I have to depart in a few minutes for a day of busy times.

Yesterday was another busy one with issues to solve that went well into the evening. I worked to almost 10:00p last night stopping only a few mins to eat. Fun times!

The GSU Men's basketball won 88-74 last night; women dropped another one.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Claudie. I see that the Hawks own the best record in basketball, they are 1/2 game up on Golden State, though the GS is percentage points ahead. I am hoping that they can keep it going.

Good morning Claudie!

Going to have nice all over again. More snow is on the way. Should be light abd easy to clear.

Temp dropped to 22° below zero (-30°C) yesterday morning. This in spite of all the weather sites saying the low was to be -5° (-20°C). Made it to a high of 24° (4°C). A nice relief from the deepest freeze.

Winter Storm Warning in effect from 1 am Friday to 6 am EST Saturday. A snow event of 9-15 inches (22 -38 cm) is forecast to arrive.

Then the below zero temps (-18° to -30°C) returns for Sat - Wednesday mornings.

Took the drive to Littleton after warming up the car for 15 minutes yesterday morning. Bought just a few items at the produce mkt. Was the only one there when it opened.

Bought green beans at a wonderful price of $1.14 a lb, cantaloupe for $2.50, cukes for 60¢ ea, and Brussels spouts, 2.68 a lb.

Big Papa's Market. Click on "See more" for some of their Great lower than the supermarket prices. Have lots of produce in stock from the week before.

Drove to Lowe's for another 5 gallon can of K-1 kero for $44 ea. My 6th of the heating season. Will see below zero temps for the next 5 mornings. Also want a 5 gal can in stock in case the power goes off so the propane stove pilots do not have to be lit and on continuously.

Visited the Mac's Mkt in Whitefield. Wanted to buy more of their fab turkey breast on sale for $3.99 a lb. Also scooped up a pkg of 3 cooked chicken breasts for a low $1.49 a lb. Also good for sammies, meals, or for chicken noodles soup.

Stopped at the Lanc PD for the accident report of the hit and run on my car in front of the P.O.when it was parked. Rec'd the name and insur policy # of the lady who backed into my front bumper. Heard and saw her up against it.

The investigating officer made a mistake and put 1/1/15 as the date of the occurrence when the hit and run happened on the Sat the 24th. He was not on duty. Gave the officer my Insur # and such later in a telephone call.

Visited a local auto body shop for another estimate. Sadly the fellow who gives estimates stepped out for an hour. Will return in a day or two when the corrected police report is picked up.

The temp is 26° (-9°C). The temp will be 30° (-9°C).

Civil twilight is 6:37 AM EST. Night is 5:22 PM.

Sunrise: 7:08 AM. Set: 4:50 PM.

Length of day: 9h 45m. Length of visible light: 10h 47m. Tomorrow will be 2m 29s longer.

Have a delightful day!

Good morning Claudie

Glad you liked the pictures. Robin has been overly busy with games every night so I've been waiting for her shots to show up over at fb as well. The ones Mom took last night aren't bad either.

Time for Dino's Jukebox and for this wild card week we'll feed off of last week's "Back To The Future" theme and go back thirty years. From 1985 that is.

The year was 1955. Big stories from that year include Disneyland Amusement park opens in Anaheim, California. Rosa Parks jump started the Civil Rights movement, and Ray Kroc started the hamburger franchise known around the world now as McDonald's. A brand new black and white TV sold for $99.95 which you could put in your brand new house that cost just under $11,000. Minimum Wage was $1.00 an hour, and a gallon of gas cost 23 cents.

This song would be the #2 song of 1955. One year later, Billboard magazine would start their standard top 100 list for the top songs of the year. A standard that still holds up today. If you get a chance, be sure to take a gander at the video with this one. See you Sunday, buddies.

Good evening, Claudie! I wasn't too upset about being sent home early since I had a headache. I enjoyed going straight home and falling asleep! Nice that your heart is in great shape.

As for the past several days, I’ve been super busy with work and school. Mom has been working as well. She has 5 days this week! Several visits with Grandma have also been made. Let’s just say she is stocked up on treats!

Today I worked 8 am - 4 pm, on U-Scan and in grocery. Mom worked 11 am - 6 pm, bagging at Al’s Karwick. After work, I met up with Jan, Tim, and Jeff at Denny’s. Our dinner night was on location this time around! Great food and it was wonderful to laugh and share stories with them.

Now back to homework!

Good night!

Good evening Claudie,

So far still no word about my dad's dismissal. I assumed it was either today or yesterday since I counted 20 days since he arrived at that facility. However, I have not been to his house in a couple days to check on the cat. I'll probably go over soon for that. So there's a chance my dad could have been transported home without my knowledge. However, I find that strange since he usually tries to tell me when he's going home. Unfortunately, his home phone which is a cordless one was tossed somewhere when the paramedics got him. So, there's no way to get in touch with him unless I call the facility. But, I'll let it go another day if he's not there. I hate to say it but I really don't want him to come home. I've been enjoying these drama-free days without him!

As for Mom, I haven't been over to visit with her since that full day Sunday. She's been able to call me so it's not too bad. She knows that I'm regretfully anticipating my dad's dismissal. However, she sounded like they found a replacement roommate for her and Mom's not too happy. Unfortunately, she doesn't have choice, but if she did she would like to wait a little bit. It takes Mom a long time to grieve. So, I'll probably get over there after work tomorrow unless something occurs otherwise.

Oh, goodness gracious!

I got a phone call from the gal I saw when I went for my initial medical appointment about 3 weeks ago (she's a nurse practitioner)! She called b/c she said she got a message that I wanted to know the results of my stress test. Holy moley! I didn't know she was going to CALL!

Anyway, I don't know exactly what she was reading to me...if it was the cardiologist's actual report to her or the one I'm getting in the mail, but it was in a lotta medical terms; so she'd read something to me and then explain it. <shakes head> Unreal!

According to the 'report,' my heart's in great shape, and there's little chance that I could have/develop a blot clot (well, at the moment, that is). I asked her was there a certain time period to have another one done, and she said that since the cardiologist didn't say anything about another one, that I didn't need another one unless I started to have chest problems or whatever. She said if that ever happened, call right up and she'd order another one.

<grins hugely (is that even a word?)>

Fantastic...report AND the fact that the NP called me!

Good afternoon, pink and FULL OF FUN!

pink, I usually like doing the genealogy thing, but I haven't really had the time lately to work on it. Maybe some day soon.

FULL OF FUN, aaahhh! Lil H is so young! Maybe she'll sleep longer tonight and give her parents a break. :)

A short break here before I get lunch together for hubby and me.

I got all the latest family info I had into my computer files and it's saved on a disk. I still need to get some info from my niece, though (she's the one who got married in December).

I think I have all the pictures (that were already on the computer) into their right folder and labeled. I'll go back and check, though, before I save them all onto the external hard drive. Then I'll be done with what I wanted to get done today. :)

Hello, FULL OF FUN and Farful!

FULL OF FUN, great that Lil H slept 4 straight hours on Tuesday night; I know her parents appreciated that. Tell me, b/c I don't think I know/remember, how old is she? As for Lil C, hope she's better today. A lot of snow predicted for you now? Take care then.

Farful, the lady I talked to on the phone from the insurance company said the stress test results were alright also; she had to look it up on the computer. As for your bus trip yesterday...whew! Thank goodness the bus driver was able to get the bus over to the side lane! Glad you made it home alright.

Good morning Claudie and All!
 
Claudie, Congrats on your good test results! Hope the stress test results are favorable also.
 
Bus trip to Burlington yesterday went well except on trip back home. The bus engine quit running as we entered Muscatine, IA. Bus driver was able to maneuver the bus safely to a side lane before it stopped. Bus driver was able to obtain a second bus from near by bus terminal. Everyone was transferred to second bus so we could complete our trip. Bus owner called to say that the first bus started up shortly after everyone transferred over to second bus. Must have been something wrong with fuel for it do that. Glad that we made it safely home.
 
Enjoy a thankful Thursday!

Yay!

Test results!

Was able to get ahold of a really nice lady and she actually told me the results of the stress test AND the 2 I had last Friday; she said the letters about the ones from Friday were already in the mail. <shakes head> Can't figure out why those 2 letters are on their way and the one from the stress test wasn't, but, oh, well.

Results? Everything fine. :) I figured that about the stress test since I hadn't heard anything, but I didn't know about the other 2.

Now if I can get some info on mom's last blood work.

Good morning, sandipaws, senile, and dickc49!

sandipaws, test results? See info above. :)

senile, thanks for stopping in!

dick, glad to hear most of the snow-blowing is done. Nice that the snow was the light, fluffy kind, right? :) As for your plan to clean off the deck and the stairs leading to it....<nods head> sound like a good one. So you're going to Maine tomorrow? Hope it doesn't take you too much longer to get there. Should it cause you any problems coming back home?

Good morning Claudie,

Well, except for the second floor deck, its cleaned up. Still some cleanup being done around me. I have a flight and one half of stairs to that second floor deck, but its my fire escape to the bedroom so i need to get to it. I will go out in a bit and do some, rest, do more until done. My back will not be happy, but i will manage.

More snow is due in tomorrow. That storm will strengthen in the gulf of Maine and give Maine more snow than us. Its going to make for a messy drive to Maine for us, but good skiing! Will just have to plan on it taking longer to get there.

Good morning, Mrs. Wrench, Robustus, WKGaser, kathybye, Dino, Scanman, yankie, MidnightSun, Lighting10K, JM, hmcsretired07, org, TUrtLE, scout, attitash, and grmoore!

Mrs. Wrench, hoping the people at the kidney doctor's office can get the mess with Mom's blood work straightened out; I'll give them until Monday to call me again...and then I'll call them, Cool that you won some more on the lottery ticket. :)

Robustus, maybe you'll hear some news about your dad today.

kathybye, hope you get some good news from today's appointment.

Dino, Emily did good in the last game. :) I saw the pix, too, on FB.

Scanman, no slow-down for you? Welcome to my world!

MidnightSun, nice to have that light, fluffy snow to clear off. :)

Lighting, rain predicted for today? Hmmm, I just checked and it doesn't show any rain until Sunday. As for the Hawks....alright!

JM, yup, another win for the Hawks, though, the Brooklyn Nets gave them a run-for-their-money at times.

org, that's a new one for me. Thanks for sharing.

TUrtLE, ooohhh, how true Nora's statement is!

scout, busy, busy, busy! Do you ever have a stay-at-home evening?

attitash, hope the ski hill gets some more snow and you have some good runs.

grmoore, hope you get some down time this evening. I know how much I like it when that happens. :)

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

Aaaaahhhh! Staying home today, but it won't be a lazy one (are they ever?)

My plans for today are to make a coupla phone calls and see if I can get connected to the right person who can tell me some test results, esp. the stress test, which I took 2 weeks ago. If I can get the results from the tests I did last Friday, well, that'll be good, too.

I also plan on updating family files on the computer and getting pix already on the computer more organized (into the right 'folders.' No household stuff for me today. I have the whole weekend for that. :)

Hi, Claudie:
Hope things go well w/ your conversations w/ the kidney doctor.

I have an early meeting today, and leave work early to see Dr. Zeman, our ortho doctor. Knee still swelling, but not as badly. I wonder if the massage helped, although we concentrated on upper body/neck.

Take care; enjoy the day! Hubby & I will leave tomorrow for Vegas. I always enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
I cannot it will be February when I return the PHX, and a New Super Bowl champion. My plans are to look for some new tops at my fav store, White House Black Market, and perhaps a few mark down items.

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Thursday! 32 degrees this morning. Walk complete.

It's been a busy few days and today is another one. Solving problems, addressing challenges, and trying to provide positive value against some "interesting" odds... (and I'm not a betting man, nor do I believe in luck.... lol)

re: all day IT conference. This was presented by Angelbeat who usually comes to Atlanta about once each year. They invite industry leaders to hear various vendor presentations about new/emerging technologies. It's supposed to be more about the technology and less about the "marketing and sales" and previously been a well-attended and very worthwhile event. Many of the presenters during yesterday's session "broke the rules" and focused on the latter. Thankfully, the conference finished early so I was able to address some of the items referenced in para. 2 above. :)

Will provide an update on our new car purchase soon when I slow down just a little. Tonight and tomorrow nights are open right now so perhaps I can add some information then.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good Morning Claudie,

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

On this date, in 1802, John Beckley became the first Librarian of Congress. He was paid $2 a day.

Good morning, Claudie. I did see the Hawks score this morning, 17th in a row and they tied the win total from last season. I flicked throught the station looking for the game on Fox Sports and found out that the Hawks were playing on ESPN...cool. Did not see the game due to the time it came on, but I was to see that they won. Go Hawks!

Good morning Claudie!

Our snow fall was light and fluffy. Easy to clean.

Hamburger is getting pricy. Much higher here.

My posts were completed early yesterday morning. The GB servers were fast, in high gear. Had some homemade chicken noodle soup for my early brekky.

Enjoyed my fave police drama's watching Netflix. Was in no hurry to run outdoors in the early morning single numbers. Later bundled up to go outside and fire up the Ariens Deluxe 28" clearing width model.

It started on the first pull of the crank cord handle. Had removed the monel lock and chain the night before that keeps the machine from wandering away on its own. Like to keep everyone honest.

Snow depth was in the 10" (25 cm) range away from the house using my trusty aluminum ruler as a gauge taking depths in several places. Widened the driveway in case of more snow snow and allow the propane delivery truck plenty of room when it is needed in March.

Cleaned up the bottom of the driveway nicely. The town plowed on the part of the road heading up the mtn and had not plowed the other side heading down. No sand had been spread at that time.

Returned inside the house after 90 minuets to have a hot bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup, some ribs, and some Boston baked beans. All set until the nest storm which could arrive during the wee hours of Friday morning.

My feet were vibrating when this post was typed. Will relax in my new executive chair, lean back, put my feet up, and watch on Netflix the superb classic war drama "Apocalypse Now," (1979) that stars, Martin Sheen, Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, and Dennis Hopper who is an insane war photographer w/more than just wild stories.

The temp is to -16° (-27°C) this morning. Have lit the kero heater to enjoy the extra warmth for some hours. The high will be 28° (-2°C) .

Civil twilight is 6:37 AM EST. Night is 5:22 PM.

Sunrise: 7:08 AM. Set: 4:50 PM.

Length of day: 9h 42m. Length of visible light: 10h 45m. Tomorrow will be 2m 27s longer.

Off to the produce mkt in Littleton for the scenic CT River drive and to buy a few items.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Yes, the Lady Patriots will be the next step up for Emily in, dare I say, two years from now. They have a Freshman team, and then they have the usual JV and Varsity teams. I hope she continues to take this as far as she can.

As predicted, it was well worth the drive to the "'burg" tonight. I was already over at facebook bragging earlier. The great thing about tonight's game was that the starters got most of the rest. The Coach started pulling them late in the first quarter and Emily went in. And stayed in. Final score Blennerhassett 33 Parkersburg Catholic 9. Emily went 2/2 from the free throw line and swished another shot for a total of 4 points in win. Lady Bobcats are now 5-3 after winning 3 in a row and should make it four next Wednesday when they play next against Van Devender, a team they beat to start the season 44-14. If they do win next Wednesday, the worst they can finish the regular season is 6-6. But we won't talk about that, will we?

Dino's Jukebox tomorrow night. It is wild card week meaning it could be from any decade. We'll set the wayback machine in motion and see where it lands. See you tomorrow night.

Good evening/night Claudie!

I just want to clarify that I was unsure when my dad is coming home. I just figured it would be today or very soon. So, there hasn't been a definitely date and I haven't heard anything today. I just went by what I know from the past. So, the anticipation continues onto tomorrow.

Good evening Claudie, That sure is crazy about your Mom's blood work, hope you can get it straightened out soon.

We had another cool day here, the high was only 61 degrees & windy. It's 49 degrees right now. Yesterday I got a call that a guy I went to grade school with (back in NJ) he was in the area with his lady friend & wanted to stop by so we visited for about 2 1/2 hours than they left. She has a place about 50 + miles from here. It's his house where we have our grade school picnic (reunion) every summer. He is so sweet, he now has Parkinson.

Yesterday I won $10.00 on a $ 2.00 scratch off card, I put it in the jar with the other $100.00 I won in Dec.
