HI Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...OH, for SURE!!!! And to think I almost broke up with him last week! We had been apart too many days and such brief conversations that just weren't satisfying. And to add to that, I've been tracking his accessing the dating online site where we found each other. However, as a result of my utter disappointment, he stepped up, smoothed things over, and NOW is thinking we should try to have a double date w/ this other woman he has kept in contact with since way last spring...even while I was in Mexico w/ him. Sounds bizarre, but I am feeling a WHOLE lot better about our prospects together. She does have a boyfriend she seems to have been w/ since last April.
Also, I got to spend time with his youngest son and his grandson fishing yesterday and I think I made a few brownie points. Sadly, I didn't get to meet Duane's DIL. She had to stay back because the 3yr old had gotten into some poison ivy in Duane's back acreage the other day! Poor little guy was pretty miserable. There is a chance I will meet her if they decide to grill the ONE Chinook that little Danny and his dad caught while we were out yesterday!

LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Happy Labor Day, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...YES, HE'S VERY SWEET!!!

Would you believe I had guests for dinner last night...the first time Duane has actually come into my world (except for double dating w/ his sister and Larry last spring) meeting one of my co-workers and his wife? They have so much in common, Duane and Frank. I fixed venison stew, corn on the cob, some veggies w/ homemade guac and Duane's salsa. Much of our meal came from Duane: venison, corn, salsa, potatoes, canned tomatoes. He is so generous, so kind.
Now, I'm getting ready to go to work. The weather is heavy and wet, but so far, not too, too hot.

Have a fabulous day, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Yup, yesterday..Friday, today...Friday!! Tomorrow I work! Sunday we're supposed to go fishing. Whoo hoo!!

Yesterday was a BEAUTIFUL beach day! Duane was SO happy cause it was the first for him in a long time and he had someone to share it with...ME! LOL Evidently, his wife didn't like getting too much sun and often stayed in the car to wait out his desire for the sand and surf. Seems like there are many similarities she and I have, but that is not one. The lake was spectacular! The color, the calm water, and the nice cool temp of the water. Duane is now calling me his mermaid...LOL!

So today, we will have guests for dinner...a guy from my work and his wife. I've been wanting to introduce them to Duane for a long time...finally going to happen!!

We are having some rain today, but all in all it is really nice.

Got the patio door open and I am going to investigate where the drum sounds are coming from...sounds like a pow-wow.

Have a super day, buddies

Anyway, I worked yesterday and will again today. Then, I have the rest of the week for the cottage, Duane, and some entertaining at the cottage.

You are having some super weather, it sounds!

Hi Beach!

Gee, where did the days go!? I've been busy. Mowing & trimming. Grocery shopping. Linda and I took a break Thursday. A short road trip to Beaufort again, mainly for that delicious seafood bisque down there.

A beautiful sunny day here. Low humidity and breezy. Perfect day to do something. Just not sure what yet! lol Maybe lunch now.

Have a great day Beach!

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...We're right behind you...I drove through some of the heaviest rain yesterday that I ever care to do! Three different times in three different places in West Michigan! We have really needed rain and this was a big help. Guess we will also see temps up near 90 by the end of the week...high humidiy, no doubt, too. Not my favorite weather.

Off to work again and then to the cottage for the dirty linens and some cleaning.

Have a happy hump day, buddies

Hi Beach!

You ARE having some wonderful days. So happy for you and Duane! :-))

We had some of the most intense thunderstorms in recent memory Monday afternoon and evening. Strong lightning and the loudest thunder. AND the heaviest rain. Reports of over 3.5 inches of rain at the airport, and that was from just two main waves of storms to pass.76° this morning, into the low 90s again today.

Have a great Tuesday Beach!

HI Brillo8 and buddies

The weekend started w/ 18 holes of golf on Friday, followed by a nice dinner out at Red Lobster...AND the best gift anyone could give to someone...confirmation that our friendship is more than a "you and me" thing, but an "Us" thing!

Next day, I got to his house about 2pm. We did some individual things and then decided to go blackberry hunting. Along the way, we found a pretty good sized cemetery and Duane wanted to wonder through it to get more ideas and pictures to make his final decision about the headstone for his late wife. Never found the berries, but went home, grilled chicken for dinner, etc.

Next day, he invited me to go to church with him, which I did. We then went back roads home in search of a nice place to put his canoe in the Muskegon River. Saw one of the oddest plantings I think I've ever seen...20-25 foot tall plants growing on a string! Out by the street was a sign that indicated u-pick hops. Is that what I saw???

Anyway, we went home, changed clothes, and went out in his "back 40" wild area and tended a few of his very special trees...ones he started from seed brought back from family in Europe! Special walnut trees...family heirlooms!

We then had a bite to eat, got the canoe and everything loaded and went for a canoe ride on the Muskegon River. We both got a bit sunburned, but not too bad. The weather couldn't have been better! And so much to see!

Right after church, we got a couple of small venison roasts out of the freezer and I put all the things needed for stew into the slow cooker for our dinner later. I have NEVER made anything like this from venison! I guess I did okay because Duane couldn't stop raving about it! He had 2 large helpings!!! Wow! Where did that inspiration come from???

All in all...a TERRIFIC weekend!

Now,it's off to work again.

Have a sensational day, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Yes, I saw that you sent emails...haven't had a chance to open and I have been extending my birthday celebration at Duane's. Yes, we had a lot of fun playing ALL 18 holes!!! Not a difficult course and we used a cart...so we didn't tire too quickly. I did really bad! But the best part for me is that I had several holes I only 2 putted! That's about a miracle for me!!!

We grilled chicken, had green beans from his BIG garden and an Italian Potato and Cheese dish. Later, we'll have a bit of dessert...one raspberry on a disk of chocolate...each!

Thank you SO much for the well-wishes, I really appreciate them.

Have a splendid evening, buddies

Hi Beach

Welcome to your weekend!

So, how'd the golf game go? Did Duane take you out for dinner afterwards, or did you two celebrate at home?

Send you two e-mails.

Hope the celebration of your birthday continues all weekend. This time, doing the things you'd choose to do. (smile)

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Thanks for the birthday wishes!

You'll have to send me the pic. I don't have that channel, so I don't know these stars. But what a rare opportunity to meet and get pics...and on her birthday!

My birthday is shaping up to be not what I'd really like to do! I agreed to play a round of golf w/ Duane. I haven't played in FOREVER! I used a 3 wood to "mow" down a bunch of tall weeds at the cottage yesterday. I didn't think I had the strength or coordination for this anymore...LOL I'm just not too excited about this activity. I have NO idea why I lost my enthusiasm, but it happened decades ago! My dad was a huge golfer and I LOVED playing w/ him, but when it came time to pay for this myself, I guess that's when I realized I'd rather spend my money on things more to my liking!

I'll let you know how all comes out.

Have a great day, buddies

The biggest thrill Linda had on her birthday was to meet Ron and Amy Shirley at Lizard Lick Towing. They star in a zany reality tv show on truTV. Got a pic with them.

81° this morning, to near 90° today.

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

This has been a very nice weekend! But humidity is to return today..yuk!

I put up several jars of dill pickles yesterday after work. Before work, I went to our local farmer's market to get the dill I needed. I knew it was going to be very busy w/ VERY little convenient parking. I thought I'd try for one anyway and followed several cars into the parking area w/ no real hope of finding one. What did happen, though, is one of the vendors was walking past me to his booth and I just happened to spot a basket of what looked like dill. Sure enough it was! So, without getting out of my car, I bought a bunch and off to work I went! Luckily, we have large empty coolers and my dill was in wonderful shape by the time I had to go home.

Off to the cottage today until tomorrow.

Have a fantastic day, buddies

Bril...I'll bet you'll like the beans. Still no rain at HOME! However, I drove through a torrential downpour yesterday afternoon about 15 miles west of home. How no accidents happened is a miracle!!! And Storm fizzled before it got to my house!!

DUANE'S BACK! At least for one day! I get to have the doggies while he's gone, though. He's headed for Nashville to a wedding. His sister's will be there and I bet he'll get an ear-full...LOL! (They love me)

So...I'm home and doing some errands and a bit of cleaning, waiting for my guy to get here!

Bril...Could you send some of that rain our way? Things are pretty dry around here. Actually, forecast calls for thunderstorms today, maybe even tomorrow...we NEED it!

Green beans...new way to prep: coat w/ olive oil, sprinkle garlic salt or other favorite spice(s), and stick in oven 400 degrees for about 30 min...YUM!

OFf to work, now!

Glad you were able to get in touch with Duane. And now, fresh vegetables too! I'm sure you're anxious to see Duane again on Tuesday.

We've had three days of rain. More today. 75° this morning, but only into the upper 70s today.

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...Cottage cleaning was easy and my guests showed up a bit early giving me the opportunity to get over to Duane's house.... no Duane, though...so I could get into his big garden and pick stuff. Glad I did that last night as it was comfortable. Today is heating up a bit and won't be as nice. Anyway, I picked green beans...about a half bushel, cucumbers, the kind for pickles...more than a peck, a couple of onions, a couple of tomatoes, green peppers, banana peppers and a very small bunch of broccoli. Now, I have to find takers for all these! I don't have much freezer space for all the beans!

Anyway, Duane allowed me to stay at his house to save on time, energy to tend the garden. He won't be back here until late Tues. Getting into the garden has helped me not miss him quite so much.

Now to finish the cleaning of his frig and pack to go home! Such a LIFE!

Have a great day, buddies

Bril...You are so right! He has a smart phone, but he hasn't spent a lot of time learning it. I did finally get a text from him at 10am yesterday and all seemed well. I never talked to him until 3:30! He apologized and we got caught up a bit. So...all is well. I like the idea of the Apple app....wonder if Android has something like that.

I head to the cottage this am for the next cleaning. It's a nice day and makes the job so pleasant....dragging all the linens back and forth.

So why couldn't you talk with him??? Surely he has a cell phone. And he's got power back. Can you text him?? If he happened to have an iPhone, you could verify his location via Apple's "find friend" app. We use it quite often, esp when our children are traveling.

Well, hope you hear from Duane soon. I know that will make your weekend much, much better!

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...didn't work too hard, but I feel I got a lot accomplished. Got rid of some things in my garage, went to SOS for info on changes to road laws, tried not to get too depressed about the market! LOL!

Now off to work...and I've been so deprived this week w/ no Duane, no cottage...LOL! Duane returns on Tue evening, the cottage will be rented next week, too....boohoo.

Have a joyous day, buddies

Hi Brillo8 and buddies

Didn't a call for work today, so I will work at home! Certainly have more to do than time to do it! LOL

Have a wonderful day, buddies

HI Brillo8 and buddies

Bril...you're right! Could have been worse. Duane left Monday morning for his property near Detroit to spend the week working on it. When he got there, there was no power, a few windows had holes in them. A storm went through there Sunday and knocked out power and big hail was reported. He just got power late yesterday afternoon. Now, he can get his work underway!

BTW, Duane said Lk MI was not even 50 degrees!!! Didn't even know I could tolerate that much cold to swim. Needless to say, I didn't get my hair wet! LOL

I'm off to work!

Have a delightful day, buddies

Hi Beach!

Yes. various images of my NC hero Jim Tom Hedrick. Many, esp those who have never seen the series "Moonshiners", think it's really ME! LOL.

Lake M that cool already?! Wow.

He had a huge, intense rain yesterday around 4pm. And Linda and I were caught out in it. But it could have been worse. About 20 miles SE of us, they had golf ball sized hail. Caused lots of damage.

A somewhat pleasant 72° this morning. Only to 84° today.

Have a great Tuesday Beach!
:-)
