Do they call it Boston Crème CAKE out your way, Tru? It is, of course, a cake, but for some reason it's Boston Crème PIE around here. Those Boston people are a little weird.

Winter is still with us. It was only 39 when I went to get gas an hour or so ago; quite a change from yesterday's high of 78. Going outside to smoke sure has helped me cut down; it's too damn cold to stand outside.GO CATS!!!

Got that right -- l put a shovel thru their necks the year the babies were in my yard and going back and forth into the heater/wall into attic. I don;t want to have to do that again. Better out of sight. I warned her and again just now l made noise to shoo her away, but l definately will get the Warafin today.

Went to the pool yesterday. They have added three umbrellas, another set of table and chairs. Sounds like this manager is getting ready for a pool party again this summer. I missed the last one. Sick.
Exercised a bit and feel it this morning. Where my legs attach to the body. Not my knees anymore..

Early morning l went to library and Santa Rosa to store and came away with over $6 discounts. Then l went to local Foodmaxx to stock up on peanut oil and popcorn kernels. Got a beautiful Boston Cream cake with strawberries on top for $6.

Jan, that's where the courses are for this trip. I'm sure you're familiar with the Myrtle Beach area, so you know the border is only a few feet from MB. We'll probably go into MB proper for some meals and entertainment.

We'll be staying at Crow Creek condos and playing there one day. the other four days are at the "Cat courses" - Lion's Paw, Tiger's Eye, Panther's Run and Leopard's Chase.

Through yesterday it's supposed to be sunny all week until Friday, when there's a 60% chance of rain. We'll see.

Sounds like Tru is quite the mouser, too. Take no prisoners!

Morning Tru, geez, Claudie, M6 and BB

The crazy weather swings continue but don't worry geez, it will be plenty warm for your trip. Supposed to be 82 today, then 55 on Saturday with frost or freeze Saturday night darn it. Have to move plants back to garage at the very least.

Did the barn early yesterday then came home and worked on the yard for about 3 hours. That's just about to get into full swing again. I'll definitely get my fitness back lol

Tru with Jasmine here I probably have a mouser. Bella is pretty clueless and since she doesn't have claws pretty helpless to catch it. She watched the other cats catch mice at the other house so she does know what they are. But knowing and doing are 2 different things!

Feels like the house is worse than ever but that's what happens when I get ready for bookclub and spring in general. Good motivation for spring cleaning though :-)

Geez why is all the golfing in NC?

Geezer he is still here and probably will remain here. He apparently knows how to work the system and costs him nothing to do so. Since he has no money legal fees are free.

I am up in the middle of the night for me. Fell asleep too early l guess.
Being up at this time l thought l heard noises in the hall or hall closet. Opened the door expecting to see something l stuffed in there sliding or falling down. No it was ok. So l listened again and it seemed to be in the hall light. Finally figured it out. Mouse in the attic. So instead of calling the office like my neighbors did and waiting for their service to come and assess the situation for a week or two. I will go to the store and buy Warafin and open the crawl space in the closet ceiling and spread it around up there. Worked in the last apt also. Don't want the wires chewed up. Don't want the babies running around my yard again either. Saves them paying for the guy to come out too.

M6 It was converted to seniors, but he was grandfathered in.
Geezer, l been there done that and thru with sharing with males. They don't share, the ones l had didn't anyway..it was usually 20% me, and 90% them. Doesn't add up RIGHT!
My sister is homeless now and l won't even share with her (coz she brings with her a homeless druggie of a son)

I could know more, Baylee, he is running around the complex with his legal documents and showing everyone. But his stories change. I read the document as to noise etc, but that wasn't his first story. I feel for him, up until he said "it was a game".

I cleaned the bathroom a touch up was all it needed. But remember l had two or three days prior to the party that l couldn't wiggle? I was so fatigued. I kinda used the party to pull me out of it.

BB, we drive down. This year is particularly challenging because one of us (not me) is driving separately because he's heading on to Atlanta for Easter at his sister's house. We take two days to drive in each direction, so there's a stop in Virginia or northern North Carolina. We'll probably get two rooms and split the cost. One lucky person will have a single on the way down.

As for the resort, there are three bedrooms, so that will work out just fine. It's costing us an additional 68 dollars each because Tim has dropped out, and I consider that to be a bargain. Tim gets a full refund, minus a $15 dollar processing fee.

As of yesterday, only Thursday showed rain. I haven't checked today's long range forecast yet.

Tru, maybe you can share your place with the guy getting evicted.... ;-)

M6, we're leaving Saturday, the 28th, and will arrive in Calabash NC on the 30th. While it's considered the Myrtle Beach area, all of our golfing will be just over the border in NC.

Claudie, just before I leave I'll take in my penguin feeder.

I'm going to wait until after this weekend to out up my hummingbird feeder; it's supposed to get below 40° (for lows) this weekend. I figure a few more days won't matter.

Good evening!

M6, spring is several weeks away still, with wind chills right now and sleet in the forecast. But this is the usual pattern, so it's not a big deal.

Tru, sounds like there is a whole story there; too bad you don't know more. We have a friend who was renting a house, which was sold to a new landlord. The new owner wanted to live there and so evicted her. She took him to court and fought so long that he gave up and resold the house. Then the newer owner had to take another year or two to evict her! She has since bought her own house, with no tenants.

Geez, how will you be going south, flying? How will you manage with just a threesome?

I always clean the bathroom when anyone is expected, just in case.

jan, we put the swing in the back yard, and that seems to have brought back the cooler weather and the rain. We drove around a bit yesterday and the flooding has the fields so wet they look like they'll take a good 3 weeks to dry. Most fields here aren't anywhere near level, so drainage from a flood is spotty.

geez, y'all leaving the 29th or is that when you'll be in MB?

Claudie, Kentucky plays W Va. first.

tru, I thought your complex was only for seniors?

BB, is summer in sight?

Baylee being evicted is not in my knowledge except that l hear once in awhile that a person has been evicted. Often for drugs, and once for harrassing their neighbors .
However l know this person and yes,he lives here, has lived here for years and showed me a folder yesterday of three day notices to correct or pay or get evicted, looked like two a year. It is a game to him. He even used game in describing the court date ..
So what happened this time was he went in to Legal Aid and told them who knows what, but to me he said the complex refused to accept the second payment on his rent (which btw is $50 a month) He is unemployed and sometimes does hair for the ladies here. Why he is not working, he is 44 years old...l do not know and don't ask.
At Legal Aid he was given 2 choices and he chose to go to court when he told me that he also said it was to bring as many people as possible to back him up. I asked for what? he said a neighbor is complaining and he wants to find out who. He knows it is his immediate neighbor IMO. Anyway it is said he parties and has loud music and they have complained and since he has the history of non compliance for paying rent etc, they refused his partial payment and gave him a legal notice to vacate. He has apparently done this before and won. He said every manager has tried to get him out and that has been 11 managers long before my time.

I did my neighborly thing and now l wash my hands of his problems.

OK Janrey l understand now. Besides you may expect a nosy lady going into an area that is not supposed to be ..l halfway cleaned my bathroom just enough to pass inspection as l didn't believe anyone would need to use it in the hour or two here, besides their own bathrooms with in steps away. But apparently one lady did go in to look as she mentioned at a later day that she looked at my new shower bench. LOL

Jan, according to Weather Channel, it's supposed to be sunny net week in Myrtle Beach. Well, at least for Sunday through Wednesday. As of yesterday the long range forecast only went that far. Of course, we all know how accurate those weatherguessers are...

Good morning BB, Tru, geez, Claudie and M6

BB I'm going to be doing my spring cleaning til everyone arrives! lol

Tru actually my guests will walk through my garage to get into the house. No one, especially me uses the front door. It's all for looks apparently. Not even a walk way through the grass to the front door. I thought about making it usable but it has 4 stairs so why bother. Although I can certainly walk up and down them now, I still don't love them!

Put all my plants out the last couple of days and brought some of the cold weather back. I knew that would happen.

Geez I hope for all of our sakes the rain slacks off. We need some serious drying time. Also of course it's supposed to go below freezing this weekend :-( pfft

M6 sounds like you're doing so much better. I'm so glad for you. I still can tell I'm not quite as strong as I was after the bronchitis :-(

Claudie I saw your post about the hummingbird scout. I put my feeders up way later than I should have last year but that was because I was still rehabbing after the first knee surgery. I finally put them out early May but didn't see any hummers. When my friend came for my second surgery she said she was seeing them at the feeders so guess I just wasn't outside enough.

Was going to do laundry today but still may after l take a tenant being evicted to Legal Aid at 8:45. It is first come, first served. I will take a book aand wait in the car.
I slept in til 5:45 and feel so rested, but puts me behind on coffee drinking and posts.

Janrey does your book club check out your garage too? Seems to be extra work you are doing just for a few ladies visit. But then your spring cleaning will be done.

I understand M6, but the poundage of filet mignon is so much less (therefor spend less)and satisfies so much more than other steak IMO
I once looked at large scallops like that. Oh too much per pound. Bit 3 scallops were plenty.

Good morning, jan,

It pretty much rained off and on all day yesterday, giving us about 1½ inches of rain (in the rain gauge). Hoping the rain/clouds will be moving out later today (or earlier, maybe?). Time for some sunshine!

m6gm, when is Kentucky's next game?

Have a great day, y'all!

Evening M6, Claudie, Tru, BB and Geez

No M6 the house is not ready for book club <sigh> It won't be ready until next Monday. Still changing things around and started cleaning out the garage. Need to stop starting new projects and finish the ones I have going!

Rained pretty much all day here today. Not really hard but enough to be obnoxious. We too have had the bulbs already bloom and done. Irises will be next I guess. My forsythia is beautiful. Grass isn't doing much but drowning lol

Went into town yesterday for soda city market. They close off 3 blocks now every saturday for vendors of all kinds and now they have a lot of different food trucks in the mix. I go for a place that sells all different kinds of pasta. Had to park way away and walk in but it was a beautiful day and I carried my insulated grocery bag from whole foods. Perfect as it has a wide strap you can put over your shoulder and holds a ton :-)

I have my must do to do list for the upcoming week. It's a lot...

Claudie, Villanova falling was a BIG upset.

geez, the only traces of that snow are in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

tru, the employees where I worked got me a small Foreman that's just perfect for a single burger, chop or whatever. We love filet mignon as well, but it's running $17.99 a pound now. The Crepe Myrtle's had the neighbor thinking they were going to fall on her house. They were beautiful when in bloom, but they were 18'to 20' tall.

BB, I feel a new man. We've even made the house non-smoking now and have to go outside when we want to light up.

jan, is the house ready for book club?

Baylee once l was in a restaurant supply store. Lots of great stuff. I was taken by the heavy plates my husband always used. Think he swiped them tho. Not sure as he had them when l arrived. I just remember the prices were way more than l could afford at that time in my life.

The plate idea is Excellent. I will use my platter from now on. Thanks for a great hint.I bleached and worked a lot in the sink. Metal.

M6 glad you are up and around more. The Geo Forman's come in many s
izes. I started with a single persons size and then got a larger one that had removable plates to better clean. Don't even know where it is at the moment. My son commented on my excess of New York steaks in the freezer last visit. Asked me if l had developed a taste for them. Actually l don't care for steaks too much. Just hit a good sale. Rib Eye were my favorite, but last one was too fatty even for me. Now it's filet mignon. I can buy one or two occasionally. They are so tender.
How can Crepe Myrtles bother anyone? 32 and l baby one little one in a pot, just to enjoy the blooms for a brief spell.

Claudie l swear our weather matches a lot. We also got rain, tho just a smattering.

Good morning, jan,

It's raining right now, and it's supposed to continue through the rest of this day, all the way 'til tomorrow evening. Good thing there's nothing special I have planned for these next 2 days! We DO need the rain, though; it brings up the water table AND it keeps the pollen down...well, at least for a few more days. :)

m6gm, well, my alma mater, Georgia State, lost their game to Xavier last night, so their season is officially over. It's alright for me, though, b/c nobuddy even thought they'd go that far! Looks like the Cats easily won yesterday; in fact, ALL of the lower seeded teams won their games and get to move on to the Sweet 16. :)

Have a great day, y'all!

Afternoon jan, tru, BB, geez and Claudie. We've been busy since early this morning. We finished cutting the 32 Crepe Myrtle trees that were bothering the neighbor, then cleaned out the shed and got the lawn tractor going to try and get used to it. A contractor came by to give me an estimate on the patio, but I won't know anything till Monday or Tuesday. Trish has the grill ready so, after a much deserved cocktail, we'll fire it up and cook some New York strips.

tru, I bought one of the big Foreman's when they were $100. It made too much mess just for one person, so it sat in the cabinet for quite a while.

GOOOOOOOOOOO CATS!

Good morning!

I've realized the funniest things about my buying new shoes is that it will be ages before I can wear them! Even after the s***banks disappear, we need to go through the quagmire phase. For a few days every April the driveway is like a quivering mass of jello, as the ice finally leaves underneath the gravel. And it's probably time for yet another few tons of gravel - sorry, "crusher" - to slowly sink in.

Tru, have you ever been to a real restaurant supply store? They are amazing, with ironstone crockery and very cool knives. You can get big plastic cutting boards in a variety of different colours, and they are coded so that they only get used for the appropriate things - green for veggies, red for meat, etc. Much better for food safety. The few times I do have meat around these days, i just use an old plate. I don't care about knife marks, and it's much easier to make sure a plate is properly clean after.

What was that M6 said about grilling? Well l was going to grill, but only having one small electric plate grill and a Geo Forman, l decided to do my chicken in the oven and it worked well. Got lots of "m m m m m the chicken is Good B." so that kind of compliment l take as believable.
Our spring turned off cloudy - after days of high 70's and even a low 80. The wind kicked up but settled down by eating time. One person came while it was windy, way early and left. Too bad as it all worked out well for a good hour then l started feeling cold fingers and came in and started clearing. Plenty of room for 15 people in front and the food left inside was a plus too. Kept it simple and only the concrete floor made my feet sore.

Only housework l did was mostly kitchen and a quick once over in the bath room . Closed the bedroom door as l pushed a lot in there to make room. But the kitchen l cleaned and bleached and cleaned in between and wiped handles and kept a pot of hot soapy bleach water and washed as l went. I didn't anyone getting sick from my chicken.'

The Voldemort amounted to a thin dusting. Not even tracking snow. As for the water, we haven't been over to the house in several days, but I'm guessing until we get some real warmth, no water.

Kentucky is looking pretty strong, M6.

Good morning and happy second day of spring BB, M6, geez, Claudie and Tru

Took it awhile to figure out that spring was supposed to arrive yesterday but the funny thing is it got a whole lot warmer around 6:30 last night and I believe that was close to the official time. Not that it helped me out during the day lol

M6 the horses were getting their spring vaccinations on Weds and Monty was supposed to be evaluated by another vet/chiropractor since he would have both Weds and Thurs off from riding. We got our wires crossed so we did it yesterday after I rode and he has today off also. And of course it's perfect weather!! The horses are fine but Monty is a really big guy and young so I got him evaluated at my riding instructor's suggestion. All was well but he's tight in a couple of places (aren't we all) and she got a good release. I'm always amazed at how the horses allow themselves to be manipulated like that but they act like they really enjoy it so it must feel good or they're certainly big enough to say heck no!!

BB did you use the S word?!?!?! And it wasn't spring?!?!?

Tru I have one week to finish whipping my house in shape. I make progress then of course mess it up again. I need to stop with all the projects and go with where I am. Like that will happen lol

I'm feeling better than I have in weeks. After we took Trish for an MRI, we went to a new restaurant for lunch. The buffet didn't look too hot, so we ordered off the menu. Good food at a reasonable price. Then we came home and cut down a tree with a new chainsaw I bought. That was some serious work.

Claudie, Kentucky plays Cincy tomorrow. They won't be a pushover, but the Cats had better be in better form than they were the first half against Hampton.

tru, some of the drugs are ones I've taken for years. The new breed of family practitioners have been instructed to send their patients to specialists instead of trying to solve problems themselves.

geez, I do take some controlled substances, but they're all prescribed and legal. We'll think about your snow tomorrow when we're grilling.

M6gm. What meds won't your new dr give you? Maybe he thinks newer more effective things are available?
Today is the big day. 16 people coming for chicken, salads and beans. I only made one bowl of beans coz when l took them to pot lucks, they don't eat them.
I made 2 salads with pasta, one with a BIG can or artichoke hearts l remembered l had and never could figure a way to use so many, and today l will make the carrot salad. Cutting up the whole chickens was AWFUL and hard and now l remember why l don't buy them anymore. But my original plan was only to cut them in half. Now l have 23 pieces and need to cut again some of the larger pieces. At least two people will eat fish. Maybe three, because of lent.

Poor planning, actually NO planning, l just asked everyone in our group. There won't be enough room on my front patch of grass for 16 people's chairs and TV trays for those who need a place to set their drinks etc. So l think l had better push all my furniture to one side and let some sit in my frontroom, or Fearless Leader will drag them down to her place. She may anyway as it has shade. But l really want this to be MY dinner with no help and no others involved. My reason for such stupidity? To see if it can be simplified and not made so complicated and so much work as the potlucks became.

Good morning, jan,

Aaahhh! Spring is just about here, 'officially' arriving tonight at 6:45 P.M. EDT. I know lots of people are happy to see this day; now let's see if the weather cooperates! :)

I actually DID end up going out yesterday, but only with hubby to Subway, where I got a salad. :)

m6gm, I could not believe it (b/c they were the lower seed and the underdog), but my alma mater, GA State, beat Baylor yesterday in the last few seconds of the basketball game on a crazy 3-point shot! Unreal! Now they play Xavier tomorrow evening. I see Kentucky had a real easy time against Hampton. Do the Cats play tomorrow also?

It should be a much calmer, quieter day for me today; not planning on going out anywhere, not even for lunch. :)

Have a great day!

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. I'm feeling much better today; the new doc is young and won't prescribe the same meds as the old doc, so I'm kinda in a quandary.

geez, I think that last bit of white lightning is what caused me to have blurred vision for several weeks. I might have a Scotch tonight while watching Kentucky though.

Claudie, we've had rain for the past 24 hours, but I'm ready to get out in the yard and do some work!

BB, we buy almost all of Trish's footwear thru L.L. Bean. Kind of expensive, but no shipping or sales tax AND you can return any item anytime if you're not happy with it. I think she's on her 3rd pair of house slippers and I only had to pay for the first pair.

Tru, I think you're onto something about the effectiveness of antibiotics. I looked at a pamphlet yesterday and the hospital here is only 25 beds, and most certainly not acute care.

jan, what was the vet report on the horses?

Good morning!

Geez, good news about the little kiddle. An lucky for us, the pup isn't into shoes - and yes, one new pair is very stylish; blue suede!

Jan, my feet are kinda funny-shaped, narrow heels but wide toes. So I'd never trust a size without trying it on. And I figured out that buying two pairs on line would have cost the same as 3 pairs on sale in a store - no shipping costs!

I don't know about that Janrey..."if antibiotics don't work in 24 hours" l had pneumonia for 6 weeks this year and went thru 3 antibiotics. I think what they are saying about antibiotics not being as effective against super bugs is true..the antibiotics aren't working as well coz they've been over used in recent past and bugs have gotten used to them.
I agree with you M6 in my case as well as yours, we should have gone to hospital. But on the other hand MERSA is rampant in hospitals. So it's a hard call.

My neighbor went into hospital other day and came home yesterday coz she was constipated.

Thanks for the excellent work on the weather down your way, Jan.

the baby went to the doc's for a checkup yesterday. That little chow hound is just over seven pounds already. Considering he started out at 3 pound eleven ounces 6 1/2 weeks ago...

BB, those new mocs are stylin'! Don't let Mika get ahold of them.

My friend Tim went to rehab yesterday. Hopefully they can get him going in a few days.

M6, some nice homemade white lightning will hasten your recovery.

Good morning, jan,

Raining, raining, and more raining!

It's supposed to rain pretty much all day long, too. Oh, well, we DO need the rain and I AM staying home (thankfully I was able to get my grocery shopping done yesterday after all)! :)

Have a great day!

Morning geez. Sorry to hear your weather decided to go all wintry on you again but it's still summery enough for you in SC!

Evening BB, M6, geez, Tru and Claudie

M6 glad you're switching docs. I've been down that road before also. My rule of thumb is if antibiotics don't do what they're supposed to in 48 hours I call the Dr. and ask to be switched. Pneumonia is tough but not that tough!!

Another nice day but cooler. Cooler still tomorrow and rain returns :-(

BB I've actually had good luck buying shoes online but I also have certain brands I stay with...Clarks, keen and ascics. I need the support and can't buy flats even though they're cute!!

Tru I didn't even have corned beef and cabbage this year. I'm sad :-(

Geez better start willing the weather to stay warm!!

Good afternoon!

M6, I hope your new doc has a better handle on your needs than the one you are replacing. Take care!

The most exciting thing I have done this week is finally buy some new moccasins -- for years I got them from the late - lamented Zellers chain, and stocked up as much as I could before they shut down. I got around to exploring the brand name of the one pair I have left, and discovered that it was a house brand, so no hope of buying the same ones from a different chain. Buying shoes on line just seems like a really bad idea, so I found a place that has a reasonable brand. They cost more than the ones I used to buy, but I'm hoping they will last longer to compensate.

I finally made the decision to change primary care docs, and I have an appointment with the new one at 3 today. I haven't been real happy with the old one him for some time, but Monday's incident was the last straw. I hope this new guy knows what he's doing.

Afternoon jan, geez, BB, Claudie and tru. All the meds I had been taking didn't work, so I ended up in the ER yesterday afternoon. Trish and I both thought I would be admitted but my blood work was good, so I got a shot and a script and went home (after 3 hours). I'm still not 100%, but I feel 200% better than I did 24 hours ago.

geez, I'm glad to hear that about Tim. Maybe that incident will make him change his ways; being real sick can do that for you.

Know it is St Patrick's Day, but l am all worn out on that this year. Everyone, even the parade, started early. Ate corned beef for a week.

Your friend is doing better, and that is great. He probably is on good diabetes diet and meds and that will need to be maintained later. Glad to hear it.

Sun and Mon were both "down days" for me. When l have no energy, l go with it and just read a lot.

Looked up the book you are reading Janrey. Seems to be a series of sorts.
Our library has a copy. I am due to return 3 and pick up one, so may look at it, tho l don't like to think much when reading. LOL

Morning Claudie, BB, Geez, Tru and M6

We've had unbelievably nice weather the last 2 days. Almost too warm but I'll take it!

Geez that's definitely good news about your friend but when you said he had uncontrolled diabetes that explained why things were so much harder to diagnose and for him to get well!

Spring while really nice seems to bring a lot of work with it. I'm not sure I'll be mowing grass in 2 weeks like Claudie but it won't be long after that. Also helping the horses shed their winter coats is always a chore. Still not bothering to bathe them with all the rain and mud we're having though.

Horses get their spring shots tomorrow so will try to ride early before the vet arrives. If not they and I will have 2 days of not riding. Of course the barn chores go on as normal lol
