Geezer l admit my math is bad, but my eldest daughter was born in 51 so that makes her 63, and in 1951 l was 20 years old. I am now 83 3/4 so l was born in 1931..

Were you complimenting me as to make me younger? Then thanks.

Had a nice sunday today, l went to Trader Joes, Sprouts, Raleys and Costco. Bought gas..filled it up for $7.90. But l had bought $11 worth 2 weeks ago.

I spent and had fun. Got lots of goodies and so there goes the losing weight attempt. (it only lasted 2 days anyway)

Another milestone met. My son's 48th birthday.

That is the baby of my family. My oldest is 63. Unbelievable, not that they reached that age, but that l am here to see it.

Good morning, jan,

It's another cool morning (for here) with a temp of 58° and a dew point of 59°. Nice! :)

No special plans for me today; no Falcons game at home or on the TV since they already played their game on Thursday night. Hubby will be watching the race on TV, though. I am sure I will find something to keep me busy. :)

Have a great day!

Good evening! Kind of a relaxing day, but I know there's a lot of things I should be doing! Oh well, I'll get all of it done tomorrow, right?

Jan, we are far enough away from the city that our s*** stays nice and white, not all sooty and grubby. And it's amazing to watch the pup run like mad in huge circles around a nice white field and leave a maze of prints. He loves a nice fresh s*** fall, and that's a bit contageous.

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru, Claudie and Peeka. It's been a warm late summer day with a lot of sun. I think there might be a bit of rain on the way as a leftover from the west coast hurricane. The people that own the little convenience store that sold a winning $1 million ticket has changed the name of the place to Shamrocks. Idiots.

jan, get ready to shell out some more dough when leaf season gets here. You'll want a mulcher and a cart to haul it in.

Nah Geezer, you got it wrong....l supply my son with....gas, food and even cash on occasion. He asks for nothing, but being a Mother, l insist coz l know his income. I am much better off, as my needs are pretty well stablized.
(Well l am not your great grandmother, <indignant huff>)

He is coming this morning in minutes, well may be a little late as they closed the main hiway here to resurface the road. He will have an alternate which is slower and more winding around the hills.

Recently he asked for my other son's address. Lo and behold, yesterday l got a postcard from the son who hasn't been in touch for a year and half l would say. This son coming today must have given the other one a talk and l will want to know what he said.

Morning Geez, Tru, Claudie, M6, 330 and BB

Geez I've learned to put my tea down before I read your comments! lol I know Tarpon Springs well. That's the area around where I grew up. I'm old enough to remember them diving for sponges!

Didn't ride yesterday in the AM because of course it was raining. Got beautiful in the afternoon but I had promised both of my horses to someone else so they got to enjoy the sunny 70s day.

It's looking good for this morning though :-)

M6 I have 5 acres which is mostly wooded but I do have a fairly large front and back yard. I'm not that great at judging but I'd say I have at least an acre in grass. Looks great for the moment. Now need to prune the shrubs in front and I'll be done for a short time. The fun really begins when the leaves start falling. I do have several large trees around the house. Great shade but huge mess in the fall.

BB you're the only Canadian I know that prefers having their yard covered in the white stuff as opposed to dreary brown lol

Thank you Baylee, l appreciate that. We did get a little rain even here. Sure helps in the forested areas l am sure.
M6 l am ok and the big cities usually are. It is the small areas next to large forested or scrub oak areas where fires get started..more often by lightening, but l see they caught a suspected arsonist on the King fire, above Sacramento.

This is they are saying , the worst of conditions this year for fires. The drought and the other factors, winds, etc. Other states are coming to help.

I haven't had much going on around here lately as l have not felt up to snuff.
My son is coming tomorrow and that always makes me perk up.

Mrs. Geezer liked Tarpon Springs a lot. It's a small tourist village a bit above the Tampa area.

Yes, we'd become snowbirds, BB. Just the few colder months. I'd rather spend six months plus one day in Florida ("God's Waiting Room") to change our primary residence and avoid NYS taxes.

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. I told Trish to run up to the corner convenience store yesterday to fill up and buy $10 of Powerball tickets. I should have told her to go 2 more blocks to another store, as they sold a $1 million ticket yesterday. We got back $8, which is better than usual.

BB, I'm not sure housing prices in FL fell too much. You can always paint your grass green if you want it that color all the time.

jan, is most of your yard wooded?

geez, Tampa's a nice area.

tru, hope you're not in the line of fire.

Good morning!

Tru, if I could mail you some rain, I would!

Jan, we don't need to worry about the yard looking brown in the winter -- it's lovely and white for about 5 months. I much prefer that to the tired brown look in early spring.

Geez, could you compromise and find a small place in Fla. to spend a few colder months? I know lots of people who have done that in the past. Are housing prices still depressed down there after the RE meltdown?

How about the bugs in summer? I hear from a FLA buddy that the bugs drive her indoors, and she much prefers outdoors in the fall. I don't know anything about FLA other than what l hear, and l see a whole lot of people go down for the winters there, but back home in the summer. Still l hear a lot of negativity about CA also, and l have lived here all my life and love it. So good luck to you Geezer if in fact you plan to move to FLA. It beats shoveling snow.

I am hearing about a whole lot of fires in CA right now. Seems most are in forests and we do still have a lot of them. But the one that wiped out 100 homes in Weed is devastating to them in a town of under 3,000. Shame. But the rain we were promised might help.

Morning geez, M6, Tru, Claudie and BB

Geez you would have liked the area where my mom's house was. Indian Rocks Beach. Yes we would occasionally have cold weather that took out the oranges but the golf courses always looked fairly busy year round. You always had green grass! I have some St. Augustine mixed with centipede in my yard and here the St Augustine goes brown for the winter also. I work really hard all spring and summer to get my grass looking this way, then fall/winter comes and browns it all out :-( Hard to believe I've owned this house for over a year and in a few weeks will have lived here a year.

Had the man that helps out at the barn on Weds. afternoon and Sat. am come over last night and fix my storm door. It decided to get stuck and the only way I could open it was to unscrew one of the sides. Needless to say that got old quickly. I was going to get him to buy a new one and put it on but he said let's try and fix it so we'll see if the fix is long term. He was also the one that suggested I get a John Deere riding mower. Mowed the yard after I got back from the barn yesterday in less than an hour!!! Told him I was still having trouble with the weed eater and he showed me how to use it correctly. Never thought much about technique but I now have everything trimmed up. Kind of proud of myself lol

Not that far south, M6. Mrs. Geezer likes the gulf side, maybe a bit below the Tampa area. We've only been to the Tamp are once, and not south of there. This is going to take some research...

Afternoon jan, geez, tru, Claudie and BB. 46 earlier this morning, but it's warmed up to a nice 70. I think I could take this weather year round.

tru, I take a generic form of Benadryl daily and Trish takes one every now and then. It's usually when we're going to have type of fish that she has to take one because she has an allergy to iodine.

BB, you may be right about the paint although this is a low odor paint, dries quickly and we're using rollers/brushes. I'll buy some masks next week or whenever she gets another day off before we start again.

geez, when you say Florida, are you thinking as far south as the Keys?

Claudie, expect a warm up next week.

jan, very sorry about your friend.

They have frosts in FLA too, at least that is what they claim when raising orange prices. "The frost wiped out the crop"
So don't plan on daily golf Geezer.

I am looking at the sales and l just can't come up with enough to buy than will give me a $5 rebate on $30 spent. Is that good, or bad? Bout all l need is fresh fruit. I see beets are down to .50c each. Grape harvest is here.

Good afternoon!

Years ago I watched the SO do some sanding of drywall, and I asked him why he wasn't wearing a mask that time. He didn't really answer, and later he had an episode of what we a few months later realized was asthma. So we both now pay a lot more attention to things like that.

And another point to keep in mind: saying that you can't breathe is the best way to get to the front of the line at the hospital emerg. Or the worst way to get a rapid response!

M6 l had a non-productive cough for several years off and on and found it went away when l used allergy meds like Zyrtec, Clariten which l am on now. Just sinus draining. Even tho when l went to a nose,ear, throat specialist , l was told that couldn't possibly be the cause. Works for me and now my dr also said try Clariten (l use generic from costco which saves a bundle) as he uses it daily. Soon as l start coughing l take a generic clariten and it stops. Won't hurt to try it? Dr will give a sample even.
Zyrtec makes me sleepy so Clariten is best for me.

Morning lucky, BB and M6

Lucky I'm doing ok. Getting a few things done before we all get together for the funeral. It's downtown Columbia so takes a while to get there.

M6 BB is right. Probably the last thing Trish should be doing is painting right now. My allergies are pretty bad right now but my breathing is still good. Guess that's the most important thing!!

Geez I think the golfers here play for several more months. Last year was just so cold early on that it made the course and our pastures of course look awful!!

M6, is she breathing in any of the paint fumes? Are you using a brush or spraying it on?

Geez, the mere fact that you could golf all year round in Fla. is just a tiny coincident, isn't it?

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. Trish has had a rough non-productive cough for about 3 or 4 weeks now and the dr. told her last week that it was just her blood pressure meds and changed them. She wasn't any better yesterday, so I made her call and get another appointment this morning. I asked the doc to give her a chest x-ray and put her on azithromycin, which she did, and she also put her on a nebulizer. One of the two should clear her up. That pretty much took up half the day. Tomorrow, more paint!

Afternoon all

I don't know how someone who has a life as quiet as I do gets so busy sometimes :/

More sad news at the barn on Saturday. Lost the oldest member of our book club to cancer. She had a horse at the farm that made it to 32. At that point I had no idea they live that long. Then she would go to all the horse shows with us and be our horse show mom. She will definitely be missed :-( Funeral service tomorrow at 11. I think the majority of us can make it. Some just can't reschedule around their jobs.

It finally cooled off a bit but it's been rainy and grey since Friday. It's interfering with all of my outdoor activities.

Thankfully I don't drink coffee. Starbucks or any other kind for that matter. I know lots of people tha can't possibly start their day without it!!

Going to try and ride in between the rain showers in just a few minutes. Horses were getting their shoes this morning so I went ahead and scheduled an oil change.

I'll try and do better. I really have been slacking lately :-(

Unbelievably quiet Sunday...I even went to Walmart for something to do. My list was short, but they didn't have but one thing. Wanted a support peg for the shelves that fell out, some medicated powder, Goldbond, and coffee filters. Maybe some poppy seed. All they had was coffee filters. Which was a surprise, coz l had at one time made 4 or 5 trips before they finally restocked them. So l bought 200.

Yes l like coffee too and drink 2 cups every morning. But to go out daily, not just weekly but daily, to an expensive place like Starbucks, not the corner McDonald's , is not for me. This lady has a better than thou way of one upping you no matter what you say. A couple of the ladies have tired of that. This Starbucks thing is just part of that.IMO.
It is fine except when you are borrowing money to pay your cell phone bill before the end of the month. Guess l am still upset that a couple of things borrowed, have not been returned or paid back.

I took some of my chicken breast brought back from the potluck and dipped it in flour and seasoned it and fried it up and it was good that way.
I pulled some greenbeans from the garden that the birds ate to pieces and now l have 3 empty barrels. Wish l had some good winter crops to grow. Pansies are coming up in one pot on their own and another flower in the other. So l will let them grow there til spring.

Good morning, jan,

Wow! Cool! It rained nice and slow overnight, though, I don't remember that being said in the forecast; don't really know when it started, but the rain gauge has almost a ½-inch in it. :)

m6gm, lucky you couldn't get the Falcons game; it was NOT a good one (well, from my perspective)! BTW, the Tour Championship...I finally got it that it was a golf tournament in Atlanta; I happened to see the ending of it yesterday, and THAT'S when it hit me! Didn't even realize it was going on.

No errands for me today. :) I do have a few things to take care of at home, though, including some phone calls. Probably a good thing, too, since it looks like it could be another cloudy (maybe drizzly day). We'll see as the day goes on.

Have a great day!

Good evening!

I don't drink coffee at all, and I make much better tea than the stuff that's for sale. And if Tru's friend goes to Starbuck's twice a day, five days a week, even if she only spends $2.00 a shot, that would be over $1,000 every year. That could buy a pretty good freezer!

Geez, I'll stop sending weather down there for now, but the real north winds just love to blow round about February. This warning will give you a chance to get ready, right?

Another beautiful day, although it did start out in the 40's. I did turn on the furnace before I went to bed just to make sure everything is working like it should.

geez, I figure we're still about a month away from using the gas fireplace.

tru, I've never had a Starbucks coffee. I like coffee, but not at $4 a cup.

We cooled way down from our "heat wave" of one day in the 90's. Down to 78 today and windy.

Our Fearless Leader called me from her daughter's and said she was babysitting and wouldn't be home this weekend. Tell everyone.
I told her l was planning to tell them that she was spending the weekend with her lover.

Baylee, l dunno about anyone else. Just one who wanted to buy my old freezer that l gave to Salvation Army. She may get one someday, right now she is always broke. I suggested she stop her twice daily visits to Starbucks, but she was offended, saying she doesn't buy expensive drinks.

The reasons given me about the dishwasher just don't add up. They told me the lease states you are not allowed to add any appliances without written permission, yet l bought my own refrigerator, my own counter top oven and my own freezer as well as the dishwasher. They do not require notes for any of them, even tho l am quoted the lease as the reason for requiring a note for the dishwasher...then she said it was because a washer or dishwasher might flood. I laugh because l have had floods in senior apts, caused by the toilet backing up, yet no dr note is required for toilets. LOL

Went to my doctor and he read the little note l typed up and refused to sign it. He said he has NEVER heard of such a thing. Got all indignant and wants to talk directly to the manager to see just what it is she wants. So l gave him that. He was agreeable to giving me what l needed , just wants to word it exactly in phraseology that a doctor would use. He tried quoting to the secretary/nurse, then just said "get her phone number, l want to talk to her".
I would have thought and said "I am surprised you don't get asked for reasonable accommodation notes all the time" and he said no only once for a PG&E reduction in rates, but NEVER for an appliance.

So it drags on. But l am getting my linoleum fixed and whatever problems l have l am being helped with immediately. The power of social media, especially Yelp.

Only 61 here today, Whack Job. Good to see you back in action.

Yes M6, a foursome of me and three Ralphies. LOL

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, Claudie and tru. It's only been up to 66 today and they're saying it might get down in the 40's by tomorrow night. We'll have Indian Summer before too long, though.

geez, do they remind you of Ralphie's brother on A Christmas Story when they're all bundled up?

jan, mom had the carport enclosed last year and I forgot to ask if the doors had a back up or were put on the emergency generator. She'll at least need to be able to get the Rover out...unless the driveway gate isn't hooked up either.

BB, I heard something about the mayor last week. He might have been on one of the late night shows.

Claudie, the person who wins the Tour Championship will probably win the FedEx cup too, with a first place prize of $10,000,000.

Wow! The idiot mayor is back to running for his old seat on council, and his slightly-smarter-but-much-nastier bro is now running for mayor. And all in the last hour before the lists closed at 2 p.m. I bet no one in TO with a radio or internet did any work in the last hour!

M6, sorry I didn't answer you sooner. Yes, we have always wanted to replace our house, literally since before we bought it. We love the site, but the house was built may decades ago, out of poor-quality materials, and not well maintained. We started out trying to make improvements, etc. but now even those changes are not working properly. We just need to find a source of cash for a re-build.

Jan, if I harass them enough they'll play in the 40's, but they have so many layers of clothes on they can't swing. It's fun to watch.

Good morning, jan,

m6gm, the Tour Championship? I must be clueless...I don't know what that is. As for the temps, yes, still warm here, with highs in the mid-to-upper-80s and lows in the low-70; high humidity, too. :(

I'm staying home today. No errands planned. :)

Have a great day!

Morning geez, M6, Tru, Claudie and BB

I'm hoping yesterday was our last day of 90 degree weather!! That doesn't mean I want instant winter either. A nice long moderate fall would be nice don't you think?

Tru I guess I've assumed where you live is structured for senior citizens and you wouldn't need letter from your Dr. about accomodations. The trip hazards you're talking about though would seem to be a priority. They may be worried about inspections when they should be way more worried about law suits!!

When I had the new flooring installed one of the reasons I had plywood put under it is 1)it's the correct way to do it and 2)I didn't want major changes in flooring throughout the house.

Geez you really do play with some weather wimps! Under 50 just means I put on long sleeves to ride lol

M6 I never thought about there being a battery backup. Maybe there is....I'll try to use the remote or keypad next time and see if it works. I'll always remember you telling me I could use my gas stove even if the power was out by lighting it with matches. Just wouldn't have occurred to me!

We go into the first two weeks of November, M6. Weather dependent, of course. My friends are "weather weenies," which means they won't play if the word rain is in for forecast, or if it's below 50. I was supposed to play today, but the weather weenies backed out because there was a 50% chance of SHOWERS, not real rain. Not a drop fell. Damn weenies.
