tru, I remember LadyLina; she is a buddy of mine. She's from Canada and works as a secretary, but I don't know how to get in touch with her. If you do, tell her Happy Birthday from me, please.

geez, she'd make a mighty cute monkey.

I guess it's a good think I'm writing this from home instead of jail. I went to Wal-Mart earlier to buy a few things and forgot to take a pack of candles out of the cart. The cashier didn't notice and neither did I until I was out in the parking lot. I went back in and paid, but I don't think a senior moment would hold up in court.

Good afternoon! We are off to a concert this evening, and will hang out with friends before and after - including some of the musicians. It will probably be very late and very cold by the time we are back home.

Tru, you can try to search for her postings by going to the message forum home page -- at the top is a line that says "Search for author". I just tried it using "LadyLina" but don't have time right now to use the other variations. Each version of caps or lower case or spaces or not could be a separate user name, so you could try each one. Or if you remember where her home city is, you can go to the member list there and find her name, which will lead you to her profile page. Good luck!

I vaguely remember LadyLina, Tru. It was a long time back, though. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Do feet creep you out, Tru? They do that to Mrs. Geezer, too.

M6, I bet that hair lady can climb trees like a monkey.

Walmart doesn't have shredded wheat?

Got all my Christmas cards mailed and delivered. Went to wish a happy birthday to a GB naned LadyLina and can't find her ..Does anyone know of her? I thought she was a buddy of mine, that is why she was on my list, but no.

Hope all here are getting into Christmas spirit, whatever that is. Giving maybe. Me l got the cards done to let poeple know l am thinking of them and gave them each a pecan tart. Miniature pecan pie. Now l am starting on making peanut brittle. Got one batch done and it is so good ..

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying life. (yes l am trying to change the subject from feet. LOL)

The lady that cuts our hair has some weird feet; a couple of toes are growing on top of others. I know because sometimes she wears flip flops in the summer. Maybe I shouldn't have bought a gift certificate for a pedicure for Trish from her...

Still horrible soggy weather around here, and no sign of sun since sometime last week. There is a rumour that we will see it tomorrow, but that will also mean a big plunge in temps. Can't have both clear weather and warm weather, can we?

Geez, I think that anyone who has focussed on feet for decades would have to be a little odd. Feet are very important, and they need to be well-treated, but we shouldn't fixate on them!

Okay, podiatrists are weird, well at least this one. The guy I took my father to yesterday was this little guy who reminded me of a balding ferret and he was wearing pointy alligator boots - and they were orange. He did seem very into his work, however, and seems to have a grasp on all things gross about feet.

Good morning, jan,

Mom had her first physical therapy session yesterday, and according to her, it went well. Boy, she said! Was she ever tired afterwards. Apparently the therapist did some leg exercises for about 20 minutes and lastly had Mom walk from one end of the hallway to the other end and then back to her room (the hallway is quite long, too). The next session is supposed to be on Monday.

The trip to WM on Tuesday (with Mom) went quite well; she had to walk into the store (from the handicap parking place) b/c the door greeter didn't see us coming. However she had 'saved' Mom a motorized cart, so that was good. Mom 'drove' it right out to the car when we left, though. That sure was a big help. :) I will feel a little less nervous when we go next week now.

I am staying home today. Have many, many things to do as this is pretty much the only day to do them. The next week basically has no days 'off,' so it's gotta be today! Hoping I can get hubby to help. <crossing fingers>

Have a great day!

tru, I love shredded wheat cereal but haven't been able to find any at WM or Sam's. I ended up with Cheerios.

geez, no White Christmas here, but maybe a wet one.

I had to take Trish to the doctor this morning. When we left, she said there was a package on the front porch, but I said we'd get it when we got back. We were there for a hour, and she needed to be somewhere else, so we left. She leaves, I retrieve the package thinking it was something I ordered for her anyway, but I don't recognize the return address. I went ahead and opened it and, lo and behold, it's half the gift I ordered for my brother on 12/7. I called and they emailed me a shipping label, but it won't print off my printer, so I have to go to the library and have them print it. Then take everything to the Post Office and hope it will be in Georgia by the weekend. I won't be reordering from them.

I'm hungry. I don't know what to fix. Not one of the people who eat like oatmeal every day of their life. L live to eat, not eat to live. It's hard to stay away from breads. Pancakes are bread, so are waffles. Isn't cereal also bread before it is cooked?

I've had potato pancakes, and such. Shredded potatoes. Think l will just stick some shredded wheat in a bowl with milk. That is so easy.

Just got dressed and found since housekeeper left l have made little piles of things, clothes and mail to file etc. Need to get my Christmas cards handed out as l made pecan pies to give with each card....Little ones, and don't want them to get stale.

Good morning, all. The snow is slowly melting here, but we'll still have a white Christmas, even if it's a dirty white.

got a fun thing to do today - take my father to the podiatrist for a toenail fungus he's had for a long time. If I can I'm going to avoid going in the examining room with him. It just plain grosses me out.

Good morning M6, Tru, Geez, BB and Claudie

Claudie how did the trip to WM go? That was a benchmark for me actually before and after knee surgery. I definitely remember how hard it was at first even when I had someone doing the shopping for me and I was pushing the cart to have a semi-walker!!

M6 I'm headed to Lowes today for some other things (I hope). You've definitely given me and idea :-)

Back in the AM groove for taking care of the horses, although tomorrow AM I do stalls after someone else feeds. It's working for the short term but no one else better get sick!!!

tru, you may have given someone an idea, tho I think the lights would have to have a sensor.

geez, our bug light runs 24/7 during the summer. It's gonna be hooked up to the remote thingie for a trial period to see if I can remember to turn it on at night.

Got off into an area l found difficult to get out of....

About the neighbor's outdoor lights. She feeds the cord thru her kitchen window. I on the other hand do not like to leave a window open , even with a broomstick blocking it. If those remots would plug in indoors and remotely turn on the outdoor lights, without them being plugged in then fine.

Meantime l have baked miniature pecan pies to hand out with Christmas cards. No one here in the complex mails cards to each other.

I think they are a miracle. I turn the fan on to force the heat down to my level again. It is a miracle to me.

Good morning, jan,

This morning I'm taking Mom to WM (she insisted); it'll be the first time I've taken her out anywhere since the last hospital visit. I'll be honest; I am kinda nervous about this today, but we'll see how it goes. I have a few places to stop on the way home, one being the post office again. Couldn't get the stamps I needed yesterday (though I did mail some letters) b/c the place was PACKED! Hoping for a better time today.

Have a great day!

Sooo, jan's celebrating her 29th birthday again?

We went to Sam's earlier for groceries, and I wanted to make a stop at Lowe's. Since we had the new windows put in, we had to figure out a new way to put up the outside lights. I found the neatest little gadget...you plug your lights into it, then plug that into your outdoor socket. It has a little remote control attachment, so you hit a button and your lights go on or off. No more going out in the cold, rain, sleet, snow or ice. Worth every penny of $10.

Yes Janrey l liked Goldfinch ok, til l got about 2/3rds thru, then it seemed to go over similar if not same things, if not feelings, so l started to skim a bit. Especially the getting the picture back. That got boring to me. Maybe because it reminded me of spy books, which l do not enjoy... eXcept one.

Good morning Tru, M6, Geez, Claudie and BB

Know how I'm spending my birthday? Doing nothing!! YAY :-)

It feels like I've been in motion constantly since my friend and co-barn worker has been ill. We're all pitching in but another one of the 4 of us has the flu so there's only 2 left standing. I do have someone that I pay to do my afternoon job and she's pitching in to fill in all the slots that we can't so I don't wind up living at the barn which I don't want to do!

I'm kind of treating this like a Sunday morning which I always used to have off and never seem to these days. French toast shortly. Ahhhhh

Had our Christmas evening book club celebration last night. Tons of fun but felt like lots of prep and it was held at the other woman's beautiful home that has been working with me all weekend to care for the horses. No idea how I trashed my kitchen so badly to make one sweet potato crumble dish :/

Tru did you like Goldfinch? A lot of my friends are reading it and seem to enjoy it. Every December we review the books we've read for book club and pick our favorites. This year it broke pretty evenly between The Fault in Our Stars and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Usually we have read more that really stick with us and made an impact. Unbroken was that for us the year before. Can't wait to see the movie!!

I'm going back to cleaning my mess of a kitchen and fixing french toast. And just because I can I might check back later :-)

Thanks for the birthday wishes ♥

A December Birthday is easily overlooked. So Today is Janrey's Birthday, and we wish her the happiest one ever eh people?

I woke up at this ungodly hour (3 a m) to a "drum" beating outside my window. Got up and looked out and it is a bucket that has a hole in it or something, coz it is not filling up like most buckets would, so the constant thump from the roof drainage is really loud. The back of our cottages facing the parking areas do not have rain gutters for some reason beyond me.

I don't feel sleepy now. Imagine it will hit me around 9..

I put a Christmas tree on my avatar and that may be all the "decorating" I do. l am not being a scrooge, just tired of all that work. Those who still find pleasure in doing it all, great, but l really don't ... so l won't. I will enjoy all the effort of others tho. Already complimented my across the way neighbor. She is going all out and has lighted wreaths and all outside. Very pretty.

I meanwhile have not even started my cards. That l will do. Too much birthday stuff going on. Today will make lemon bars for tomorrow's birthday party. Then there is a break til the complex's party as they changed the day from Wed to Friday. That will give me time to make out my cards. Most l will pass out here, and only a few to mail.

The places that flood and have mudslides are far away from me, way to the south for the most part. WE have some street closures but the people that live in those low lying areas are well aware and got sand bags if they were smart. Those that aren't smart, like the dummies who drive into underpasses filled with water, are the ones shown on TV.
Finally went and got the antibiotics for the bump on my forehead. Got the CVS brand of facial cleanser. Then to the library to return "Goldfinch" ,what a huge book, could barely hold it up. Picked up three more books. I'm set for rain now. LOL.

M6, as much of an annoyance the snow is, it's a common occurrence in these parts, so we're used to it. We don't get the Buffalo area lake effect storms here, so it's normally manageable. Plus, being retired, I can wait it out.

California is something else. Many years of drought followed by a deluge like they're getting now is catastrophic to many. I hope they get through it without loss of life.

Geezer and Bailey, you are dealing with a whole lot more than we have or had.
I personally wasn't affected by this "storm" (lots of water) but the news have rounded up all they can to show how bad it was. Even the predicted flood of the Russian River did not happen. They said 3 feet over the banks, but the town was fine. Must have been just in one low lying spot. I did expect problems with the river.

It is a dry day today, then more rain days, but a lot less water coming down.

Hope you survived the dog sitting Janrey.

I got 3 loads of wash done yesterday. Only "problem" was the basket slopes and a neighbor said l was about to lose some of the draped clothes. I washed dresses and jeans loads, then since no one was about, l brought back a load of towels and put them in washer. Took over 2 hours to do entire thing including hanging damp dresses when back at apt, but glad to get everything done up.

Good evening!

M6, the reason that I gave no report about our driveway is that I was too busy dealing with it! Problem was that I believed the forecast, so the van was in the wrong place. We cann walk out, of course, but I was shovelling for hours. The s*** was from the north, so the trees to the east and west didn't protect anything. Anyway, we gave up today and a guy ploughed the rest of the thing, in the dark. Van is still only halfway along, but no more mounds in the way. Meanswile I'm tired! Tomorrow will be easy!

Oh - I was also getting worried about running out of gas. That would have been even more of a pain.

Quick post to let you know we're surviving at barn. I have my friend's cocker spaniel that I have taken care of since she was a puppy but she's never spent a night away from her owner until last night. She was with my friend's parents but they can't walk her so she's here at night and barn during the day. Wish me luck! Been a long long time since I've had a dog in the house :-)

Guess this storm will develop more problems, but so far so good. Few thousand out of power, (out of many millions)mostly south of us. They don't have rain yet but lots of wind around Pacifica. Meanwhile l hear 4 inches and more in Ukiah, north of us. So we are getting steady rain, and when l was out Monday l noted a LOT of leaves in gutters so expect minor flooding in areas. Not as bad as predicted, but time moving on will bring more l am sure. They will hunt them down to put on TV and make it look worse than it really is. I understand that high tide will be the telling point in the rivers.When all the rain can't drain into the ocean.
The reason they even talk about this storm is that we aren't prepared and never are used to anything other than normal rainfall.

BB, I managed to chew up those flowers with the blower the other night. Ah well, they'll be back late next summer.

Evening all

Just one of those days.....my friend at the barn was not getting better. Matter of fact was going down hill rapidly. Took her to a doctor's care this morning and she has double pneumonia with very poor vitals so we had to go to ER. Now remember that she works at a hospital...refused to go to hers but went to a sister hospital where our other riding friend works. They admitted her for a couple of days. She's not happy but too sick to really care. Guess that works :/

and me? I'm still fine. Tired but fine :-) Kind of nice to be able to say that after all this time!!

Good morning! We are due for a fresh s***fall today; just what we were missing.

Geez, our last yellow wildflower seems to have given up this week, but it did make it through the frist two s***s. I did get a couple of pix of it.

BB. I just call her fearless leader. Partly coz she calls everyone to her place as she is working on decorating vases etc to sell. She likes people to come to her, and we mostly do. I have backed off coz l get tired of same-o same-o and actually she doesn't talk much. Mostly listens to all of the visitors,
She is fearful of not finding her way around the slightly larger town so asks for someone to take her to DRS. I have twice, but she drives everyone around our town. Those who don't have cars. Always rounding up people to come over so l call her Fearless Leader just a thing that popped into my mind. She is a likeable person. Just barely into Altzheimers tho. Doesn't remember, much like where we ate last couple of months. ETC. She is a nice lady but can get upset at minor things. She likes and gathers people to her.

No explosion, BB. UPS actually showed up a little after noon. The driver said he was concerned that he'd miss the delivery again because of the tons of packages they have, so he reversed his route a bit to make sure Mrs. G got hers. We are at the end of their route, so even on a normal day we don't get stuff from UPS until around 6 p.m. If they continue their normal routing, we might never get stuff during the holidays.

Good morning, jan,

I got a new toy yesterday; I got a Samsung Galaxy tablet with a 10.5 inch screen. Son pretty much got it set up for me and then showed me some stuff. I am so glad he did that b/c, watching him and answering questions about the set-up, I don't know if I could have done it myself. Now I just have to learn a whole lot more.

m6gm, I stayed up late (for me) and watched the Falcons game against the Packers. They looked horrible during the first half; the score was 31-7, Packers. <shakes head> They must have had a fire lit under them during the second half b/c they played a heckuva lot better, scoring 30 points to Green Bay's 12. How 'bout that Julio Jones? :)

Well, it IS Tuesday, but I am not taking Mom to WM today, as is normal; in fact, I'm not even going to WM today (I'm not even taking Mom to WM this week; I'll just get her stuff when I go myself...tomorrow))! Hubby and I are going to visit his sister and her husband (they live in a northwestern suburb of Atlanta; takes about an hour to get there); we'll probably stay until early afternoon, going home before afternoon traffic gets going. Before we head on up to their house, though, we'll stop off and see Mom for a short, short visit; I have to drop off a coupla things to her and see how she's doing.

Then when I get back home, maybe I can play with my tablet a little more. :)

Have a great day!

Good evening!

Jan, you're right about stables smelling better than cowsheds. And I never saw all of the livestock under that house -- I sure hope they didn't have pigs!

Tru, I gather from your tone that your FL is self-appointed? I have known that type of person several times and places, and they often end up running churches -- at least two I knew were involved in two totally different ones, in different parts of town and even different denominations! I never tried to find out how they managed that trick.

Geez, I just read about parcel deliveries being stolen from front porches in downtown TO, near a couple of streets where we used to live. Most of the people said that they were at home, and no one rang their bells, or the package was supposed to get a signature, but was just dropped off anyway. So did your parcel finally manage to turn up? I haven't heard any explosions from that direction yet!
