Good Morning org,

Synchronized Flying from Kerry Terrell.

I deserve a first class seat:

A blonde gets on an airplane and sits down in the first class section of the plane. The stewardess rushes over to her and tells her she must move to coach because she doesn't have a first class ticket. The blonde replies, "I'm blonde, I'm smart, I have a good job, and I'm staying in first class until we reach Jamaica."

The disgusted stewardess gets the head stewardess who asks the blonde to leave. The blonde yet again repeats "I'm blonde, I'm smart, I have a good job and I'm staying in first class until we reach Jamaica." The head stewardesses doesn't even know what to do at this point because they still have to get the rest of the passengers seated to take off; the blonde is causing a problem with boarding now, so the stewardess gets the copilot.

The copilot goes up to the blonde and whispers in her ear. She immediately gets up and goes to her seat in the coach section. The head stewardess asks the copilot in amazement what he said to get her to move to her correct seat. The copilot replies, "I told her the front half of the airplane wasn't going to Jamaica."

Good morning org!

Everything is perfect, except for the weather. A home is a fine invention. Most useful!

Somehow getting my posts and rounds done an hour earlier w/o an earlier wake up. Like to be done before first light and have plenty of day left.

Have not heard from the phone Co. They could have worked on the w/e problem of the modem resetting itself a number places. It is working well as this is typed.

Went out to buy gas that is $3.09 in Lancaster. Was amazed that $10 gave me 3.2 gallons and a half of a tank. Went into Shaws and looked for oyster sauce. They had only one kind that read oyster sauce flavored. The ingredients confirmed my suspicions.

Wanted Sesame oil, Asian toasted. Saw several on sale. Will compare the price(s) that WM charges when at that store. Want to make a Chinese marmalade and sauce w/o all the chemical found in the store bought ones.

Stopped at the P.O. picked up my mail and saw the yellow card that reads an item arrived that can not fit in the PO Box. It was the StarCraft II video game ordered from eBay on the 15th and mailed on the 16th.

It took only 4 days to arrive from Hermiston, OR. Gave the seller 4 stars across the board and added "Super Service" as comments. Have a new pc game to learn, play and get lost in.

This rain is a perfect way to remain indoors and get lost in the three different worlds of the Terrans, Protoss, and the Zerg. The graphics are so detailed and are truly magnificent.

The rain will swirl in a counter clockwise pattern due to our 6 day nor'easter w/rain. This is a macro-scale storm along the upper East Coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada; it gets its name from the direction the wind is coming. It feeds off the ocean and pounds inland.

The ISS orbits by twice tonight, early for those who can can it.

Civil twilight is 6:40 AM EDT. Night is 6:20 PM.

Sunrise: 7:10AM. Set: 5:50 PM.

Length of day: 10h 40m. Length of visible light: 11h 39m. Tomorrow will be 2m 53s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), the high will be 49 (9°C) w/rain on and off. Mt Washington (6,288' 1916 m) sees snow.

Have a fabulous day!

G00d Evening, Claudie, TUrtLE1625, Farful and three30!

I mowed my yard on Saturday, by Sunday one could see the lawn for the leaves!
I trust your Mom's monthly protimes check was g00d and so the rest of her and our day!

TUrtLE, Thanks to you Frank; that could have got ugly!

Farful, I did not know that!
Sounds like your friend is getting along find if he brought a snow blower!

Org, That was Admiral Nelson's last battle.
 
Had the $2.99 buffet lunch with Clinton friend yesterday. He is happy to drive again now after recovering from broken leg. Hopes to schedule his hip replacement next. He purchased a JD snow blower from his neighbor this year for $50. He said his neighbor has moved away. JD snow blower has been used for years by his neighbor cleaning everyone's side walks of snow.

Good Morning org,

First experience horse riding

A blonde decides to learn and try horse back riding unassisted without prior experience or lessons. She mounts the horse with great effort, and the tall, shiny horse springs into motion.

It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slip from the saddle. Out of shear terror, she grabs for the horse's mane but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider.

Finally, giving up her frail grip, she leaps away from the horse to try and throw herself to safety.

Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup. She is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground again and again. As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness or even death when Frank, the Wal-Mart manager runs out to shut the horse off.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Good morning, org,

The yard got done and is all purtied up, though, as soon as the yard guy was done with everything, some new leaves started to drift right down on the 'cleaned' yard! <shakes head>

I checked out the rest of the divisions and the NFC South teams have the worst records. <shakes head>

It's Tuesday, so I'll be taking Mom to WM, though, a little earlier than normal. We have to go to the doctor's office first to get blood drawn for her monthly protimes check (oh, please, please, please, be a good reading!!). Then I'll take her to the store and hope to get her back in enough time for an 'event' at the ALF...a local pre-school group is visiting (they also did last year), and they'll be 'trick-or-treating' up and down the ALF's hallways (each resident will be given a bag of candy to give out). Everybuddy involved loves it! :)

For me, after dropping Mom off at her place, I'll be on my way home, too. :)

Have a good day!

Good morning org!

The internet is worldwide. Now at my fave tree!

Our low was 34° (1°C) and was higher than many places in southern New England. It was not warmer on the summit of 6,288' (1,916 m) Mt Washington. The manned Observatory saw 10°F (-12°C) for the low.

Finished my rounds and posts early this morning and saw 4 TV series on Netflix. After the last one a banner appeared and asked me to check my billing card which became outdated.

Bought three bolts at HD 2 m/a. My bank sent me a new card and cc number, in case the account was compromised. Changed to the new number and instantly rec'd a "problem solved" message, then 1 minute later a "updated your account." was successful. Thought it nicely smooth.

Found that my StarCraft cd has a skip on one of the orchestra songs as it is played. The disk has a nick in the center. Went online to eBay and order a new replacement disk in 'mint condition' for just $5.99, shpg is included. Such a deal as brand new one was $40, 16 y/ago.

Took a drive on the CT River hwy to see the silver maples have lost their leaves. Continued on to Littleton, went to Lowes and bought M-D Building Products 0.5-in x 10-ft Gray Closed-Cell Foam Window Weatherstrip and Frost King 1.25-in x 10-ft Black Foam Door Weatherstriping.

Spent just over $30 to seal the exterior doors and windows from the air leaks. My windows and doors are 25 y/o. Much of the front door weatherstripping was well worn from use.

Will save money on heat this winter. Walls are insulated to at least R-19 and the 2nd floor ceiling to at least R-38. Built all of my home. Usual cost of heating the house is $100 a month for the entire year.

Also using propane for cooking and hot water as well. Like to save money and keep warm at a low cost.

The ISS orbits over my area at 6:54 this evening. See it in your area along with the other satellites.

Civil twilight is 6:39 AM EDT. Night is 6:21 PM.

Sunrise: 7:09AM. Set: 5:51 PM.

Length of day: 10h 42m. Length of visible light: 11h 42m. Tomorrow will be 2m 55s shorter.

The temp is 34° (1°C), the high will be 55 (13°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Lots of rain arriving (up to 1 inch/25 mm an hour) remaining thru Saturday. 30-40 mph (48-64 k p/h) wind as well.

Have a wonderful day!

Good Morning org,
I don't know.

The blonde test taker.

A blonde reports for her university final exam which consists of mainly true and false questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet: true for heads and false for tails. Within thirty minutes she is all done, whereas the rest of the class is still working furiously.

During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is happening.

"I finished the exam in a half hour," she replies. "Now I'm rechecking my answers."

Happy Monday!

Good morning, org,

It was a bad day for our entire division yesterday! Well, except for the Bucs, who had a Bye week.

The race? Yeah, hubby watched some of that, too.

It's going to kinda be a busy day for us. First the yard guy will come and take care of things, and then hubby will be going with me to a consultation about some dental work I'm probably going to have done. That appointment is at 2:30 up near where Mom lives. Hope it's not too long.

Have a good day!

Good morning org!

Doc did suggest the med nearly two weeks ago. Was me who decided to wait. Waiting no more.

Entertained myself playing StarCraft in the wee hours after my rounds and posts were completed. Later there was a problem with my internet connection.

The modem kept resetting itself and was up running 2-3 minutes before another reset occurred. Phoned FairPoint, my ISP, and reported this issue. The tech gal tested the line and net from Texas and showed a major problem somewhere.

Techs will test the line and come top the house tomorrow Kind of like this problem. It means a phone call to the biz office will get me a discount of half the usual months cost of $27.99 for 7 Mbps.

Ate the last of the beef stew. Simmered some basmati rice, made Julienne carrots and green beans nuked in the Pyrex mixing bowl. Cooked two of the cod, ate one, and has the leftovers in the fridge.

Will finish the cod, then make a crock dinner w/6-8 servings this week. Have lots of rice. Perhaps it is time for shrimp fried rice along w/a ton of veggies. Also thawed out a 1.5 lb pkg of ground pork sirloin roast. One year ago it was bought for $1.59 a lb. Dbl that these days.

Went outdoors twice after the rain ended at 10 AM. Raw as could be. Damp to the bone. The temp was 39 (4C) at 10:30. At 12:30 is was barely better at 41 (5C), the high for the day. Going to have to get used to the coming deep freeze.

Can hear lots of shots in the distance during the day. They are hunters firing their riffles during this now in full swing hunting season. The shots will ring out until December.

The ISS flies over at 7:44 PM in my area. See when it and the other satellites orbits by in your area.

Civil twilight is 6:38 AM EDT. Night is 6:23 PM.

Sunrise: 7:07AM. Set: 5:53 PM.

Length of day: 10h 45m. Length of visible light: 11h 44m. Tomorrow will be 2m 55s shorter.

The temp is 38° (5°C), the high will be 51 (11°C) in partly cloudy skies.

Have a pleasant day!

Good morning, org,

What a gorgeous day it was yesterday for the open house/festival at the ALF (perfect day #4?)! Sunshiny (and a blue-blue sky), about 75° and a slight breeze. Nice!

It was just hubby and me who showed up there from my family, but we had a good time sitting with Mom, just talking, visiting with other residents and their families, and, of course, eating lunch. It felt so good to just be sitting out in that wonderful sunshine!

I am staying home today. I have a few 'things' to finish up, and then hubby and I will be watching (on TV) the Falcons play in Baltimore at 1 PM; he'll check out the race at commercial times. :) Other than that, no other special plans. :)

Have a great Sunday!

Maybe he was a blonde, too.

Your Sunday movie is entitled Autumn is Near, from Chee Chee Martin.

The music is "Sweetness and Light" by Chuck Brown.

The movie is shorter than stated unless you want to listen longer to the music. After the credits there is a poem which concludes the graphics.

Hoping you have a peaceful autumn Sunday!

Welcome to Sunday, MidnightSun! Results from the hospital are like a miracle. Makes you wonder why the doctor did not prescribe earlier?
Is the rain from the effects from Gonzalo?

Good morning org!

Results from the hospital are even better than imagined. Like a miracle.

The diltiazem, 240 mg a day, for my heart palpitations is working fabulously. No longer 150 beats per minute since the first was taken on Friday morn. Could sleep easily and worry free. Perfect!

Enjoyed some StarCraft battles, then some TV Shows on Netflix. Watch 20 minutes of The Following pilot. Liked the escape, found the following 10 minutes of character build up to be boring. Watched an episode of Criminal Minds, which kept my attention gigantically.

The cod on sale at Shaw's, this w/e only was too big a savings to stay away from. Took a drive south on Rt 135 beside the CT River to see much of the sugar maple leaves knocked to the ground and water by the pouring rain.

Did get some pix the other day while the leaves were still green w/a light hue of color. No spectacular colors this year, due to the lack of rain for the past month.

Bought 4 more pieces of wild caught cod, some of the 18 oz cans of Campbells soups for $1 ea, and a HFCS free loaf of Shaw's bread. Still considering the six dbl wide rolls of paper towels for $5.99. That sale remains through Thursday.

Picked up my mail at the PO, then returned home. Had a meal of scrumptious cod, veggies and a healthy salad for my late lunch/dinner combo. Removed 1 24 oz container of soup from the freezer and replaced the space w/the new cod.

It rained on the severe side of moderate much of the day. Listened to the online radio of my fave station and looked through the pix taken all year. Will upload a few every couple of days by Monday's post.

Civil twilight is 6:36 AM EDT. Night is 6:24 PM.

Sunrise: 7:06 AM. Set: 5:55 PM.

Length of day: 10h 48m. Length of visible light: 11h 47m. Tomorrow will be 2m 57s shorter.

The temp is 43° (6°C), our high for the day in overcast skies w/a 40% chance of rain.

Have a splendid day!

Today is the ALF's Fall Festival, and, thank goodness, it's going to be a gorgeous day for it...sunny and about 75°. Hubby and I will be going about 11 and staying for a while. It's always great to see everybuddy having such a fun time. :)

Another perfect day here, I think. So that would be perfection, tripled?

Good morning org!

Nights are to be in the 30's and 20's into Mon morn.

Mowing until Dec? Wanna earn an extra $20!

Went to lay down after my early morning rounds and posts to get in a nap. All that could be heard was my heart racing and the sound echoing off the mattress from the pillow into my ears.

Drove to the hospital ER and saw the doc. Told him the sound was keeping me from sleeping and worrying me. Asked him to look up the heart specialist recommendations and results.

In under 30 minutes there was a call to Lancaster's Rite Aid for a Rx. Drove the 10 minutes to the pharmacy and had the script of diltiazem 240 mg a day waiting for me.

The pills are normally $60 for a 30 day script. It was an amazing $1.20 w/my AARP Plus coverage plan. Did not have another episode of palpitations since taking the med at 9 AM yesterday. Think the taking the medication is a prudent decision.

Stopped at Shaw's for their w/e super sale. Wild, caught at sea, cod is $4.99 a lb. Purchased 4 pieces with thick loins. Normal price is $7.99 alb. Saved about 40% on the sale.

Fried up in evoo a large amount of red, orange, and red bell peppers. After a few minutes same sized chucks of yellow onion were added. Last 8 ounces of baby bella mushrooms were stirred in.

Had a delightful amount of cod, pepper jack cheese melted on top along w/the stir fried veggies. Like that extra was prepared for left overs all w/e. Also bought asparagus for the low cost of $1.88 a lb. Lots of veggie varieties this week to enjoy at mealtime.

The ISS orbits by the East Coast early at 7:44 tonight. See it in your neighborhood along with the other satellites.

Civil twilight is 6:35 AM EDT. Night is 6:26 PM.

Sunrise: 7:05 AM. Set: 5:56 PM.

Length of day: 10h 51m. Length of visible light: 11h 50m. Tomorrow will be 2m 56s shorter.

The temp is 48° (9°C), the high to be 61° (16°C) in overcast skies w/a 40% chance of rain.

Have a tremendous day!

G00d Evening, TUrtLE, Claudie and Farful!

TUrtLE, v
What I can't figure out, is why the man let her cut the second and third hole!

Claudie, Beautiful day here also, with a high of 72°.
Perfection, squared?

Farful, I am sure it was a taxing situation!
Hope both service calls were satisfactory!

Good morning org_elizard and All!
 
Org, He should have paid his taxes or at least filed. His tax advisor could be to blame.
 
Waiting for telephone tech and HeliTech persons to visit today. Phone was giving me trouble after the 2" of rain. Corner foundation inside garage needs repair. Should get the estimate today.
 
Phone tech called but has not called back. Still must be testing my phone lines. Hmmm....

Good morning, org,

Another nice day is predicted for here today: sunny, cool (in the high 60s-low70s) and dry. A great day for the ALF to take the residents to the farm they were supposed to visit on Tuesday. Mom is soooo looking forward to this trip!

Me? I'll just stay home again today and enjoy this day. :) Perfect again, huh?

Have a great day!

Good Morning org,
HTE&JD - Happy Thelma, Eddie and Juno Day!

I'm going ice fishing!
A blonde who got a fishing rod for her birthday decided to go ice fishing to make good use of her gift. Early the next morning, she got all her gear together and headed out to the ice.

When she reached her final destination, she cut a large hole in the ice and dipped the rod in. Then suddenly she heard a voice that said: "There are no fish in there".

So she moves to another spot and cuts another hole, but then the same voice spoke again and told her there were no fish in there.

So she moves again, and the voice tells her there are no fish in there. So she looks up and sees an irritated man staring down at her.

"How do you know there are no fish there?" asks the blonde.

So the man cooly says "Well first of all, this is a hockey rink, and second of all, you're going to have to pay for those holes."

Have a Funtastic Friday!

Good morning org!

No leaves makes for many sunrises to be seen over the mtns. Playing now thru May. No more mowing til Memorial Day. Hurray!

Relished in completing my rounds and posts early yesterday to be able to relax and see several TV Shows on Netflix. The rain arrived at 5:15 AM. Heard it as the windows were open. Nice slow steady rain. Temp was a pleasing 62° (17°C). Inside the house was 74° (23°C).

Enjoyed the drive to Littleton. When the rain stopped,the clouds had three elevations (depths) w/some blue skies as a background. The mountains saw swirling clouds pour over the summit ridges like an ever so slow waterfall.

Bought at the mkt were Brussel Sprouts $2 lb, 5 lbs of carrots imported from Quebec $2, broccoli crowns $1 lb, a Big head of celery $1.14, cukes 40¢ ea, green beans $1.75 lb, and baby bella mushrooms 10 oz for $2.25.

Bartlett pears 98¢ lb, as were most apples. No apples were purchased. Yams were at a recent history low of 65¢ a lb. Big Papa's Mkt was jammed w/8 AM customers.

Bought a few items at WM. Was going to visit my pal who is the mgr of Rite Aid. He took the day off. In fact he takes every other Thursday off. Great to make one's own working hours.

Rain returned in the afternoon. At no time was it moderate. Like having the slow steady rain for hours. We needed it as it did not rain for over a month. Temp was 73° (23°C) in the afternoon. Kept all the windows open. Yet not at night. Civil twilight is 6:34 AM EDT. Night is 6:27 PM.

Sunrise: 7:03 AM. Set: 5:58 PM.

Length of day: 10h 54m. Length of visible light: 11h 53m. Tomorrow will be 2m 58s shorter.

The temp is 60° (16°C), the high to be 66° (22°C) in overcast skies w/a 40% chance of rain.
Have a delightful day!

Good Morning org,
LOL
You liked my HTE&JD or did you not figure it out?

Blonde jokes are back.
Thank you niaw for sharing this one with me.

A blonde and her husband are sleeping when the neighbor’s
dog starts barking. The blonde sighs, shakes her fist and says 'Wait until you see what I'm going to do to those neighbors!' She runs out of the house and five minutes later she comes back with a smile on her face. The husband asks 'So, what did you do?' The blonde says 'Well, I took the dog from their yard and I put it in our yard to see how they like it having the neighbor’s dog barking all night.'

Have a Great Day!

Welcome to Thursday, MidnightSun! Wow, no leaves until Memorial Day 2015; must be nice!
Mowing can take a lot out of you.
Make this a fantastic day!

Good morning org!

Going w/the flow. Saw Abe w/o a beard. It was an improvement. Ha!

Ordered StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty on Ebay yesterday morning. The new game is $60. That is the PC version and a very high cost compared to other games. The are many new stunning graphics and improvements over the original.

Ordered it in very good condition for $13.57 inc pstg. Rec'd email confirmation it was shpd. It should be here Tues or next Wed. There is a sequal available now "Heart of the Swarm" and another sequal to be released soon.

Watched some Netflix TV Series. Also going thru the 4 seasons of The Walking Dead. Very graphic scenes that are not recommended while eating.

Went thru 1000+ pix taken spring summer, and fall. Began to upload them in a time frame. Then rec'd notice that my allotted amount of MB is used up during the final upload.

Will now create a new group of pix on another site. Hope to share it next week.

Had the pleasure of a 3 hour nap from 7-10AM. Foe me to sleep that long proves it was needed. Woke up to partly cloudy skies and temps in the 70's. Changed into shorts and a tee and went outdoors.

Mowed the entire lawn mulching up the hardwood leaves. In the extra thick leaf areas it took 2 and 3 runs across the same lines to chip up the leaves into near dust.

Great to do this when the leaves are dry and fluffy. A big job to rake, even bigger when the leaves get soaking wet. Glad to mow them and have free fertilizer in the spring. With spread pelletized lime before the snow falls.

Spent two hours mowing. Wanted this to be my final time using the lawn mower. Enjoyed the looks of a leafless lawn and the thought of not needing the lawn mower until Memorial Day 2015.

Made a fabulous salad of leaf lettuce, delicious home grown tomatoes, ham, prosciutto, and pepper jack cheese w/evoo and garlic on top. Can feel my feet, legs and hip pain after two hours of non stop mowing. Turned in early. Slept later.

Tonight the ISS orbits over the East Coast early at 6:10 PM. See the ISS (w/the naked eye) and all the other satellites in your area at this website.

Civil twilight is 6:33 AM EDT. Night is 6:29 PM.

Sunrise: 7:02 AM. Set: 6:00 PM.

Length of day: 10h 57m. Length of visible light: 11h 56m. Tomorrow will be 2m 58s shorter.

The temp is 60° (16°C), the high to be 71° (22°C) in overcast skies w/an 80% chance of rain. We need it.

Off to find some deals at the mkt and do some light shopping.

Have a fantastic day!

Good Morning org,
I don't know that I have ever seen green M&M's except at Christmas when they sell packages of red and green ones.

Rescued seal pup Juno meets geriatric Eddie for first time at the Oregon zoo's Steller Cove otter habitat.

The zoo's two geriatric otters — Thelma and Eddie, both 16 — are now hanging out with 8-month-old Juno, and keepers say the pup's youthful exuberance is keeping the older otters on their toes.

Juno, who arrived at the zoo May 13, was found orphaned on a California beach in January. The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Research and Conservation program arranged for her rescue, but — with no experienced adult otters available to rear her — the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service deemed the young pup non-releasable and approved her transfer to the Oregon Zoo.

Eddie and Thelma have lived at the Oregon Zoo since 2000, on long-term loan from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Like Juno, both were rescued along the coast of California, where they were abandoned as pups in 1998.

Considered a keystone species, sea otters play critical role in the Pacific Coast marine ecosystem, promoting healthy kelp forests, which in turn support thousands of organisms.

HHD or perhaps HTE&JD!

Good morning, org,

Whooeee! What a weather day it was here yesterday! We ended up totally getting about 3.5 inches of rain (in about a 12-hour period; the rain finally stopped mid-afternoon)! Wow! We didn't get much wind at all, though, so not much debris on the ground, just a bunch of leaves. There was a confirmed EF1 tornado in a city northwest of Atlanta and possibly another one somewhere else on the west side; it was a smaller one, though...an EF0. ANY tornado is too much for me! Anyway, looking forward to a clearer day today and some drying out.

Hubby and I left to go to the vet appointment a little early yesterday (b/c of the rain); got there at 9:40 for a 10 o'clock appointment. Lo and behold....we were in and out before 10! Kitty got checked out and had 2 shots, got a prescription refill and we were on our way! Have never been in and out THAT fast at the vet's before! Don't know if the weather had anything to do with it, but I don't care!

Looking forward to a sunny day today, (I hope); got several outing to take care of....nail salon, Mom's and then Kroger for groceries and a gas fill-up. It's going to be a busy one!

Have a great day!

On this date, in 1860, eleven-year-old Grace Bedell of Westfield, N.Y., wrote a letter to presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln, suggesting he could improve his appearance by growing a beard.

Happy Hard Drive, MidnightSun!
Sounds like everything is in place to replace!
The big day will s00n be here!
Make this a fabulous day!

Good morning org!

Grass roots need to be 58º in order to grow. That is suspended animation here most days at this time of the year. Lawn is tops 3" tall. Another 2-3" w/leaves. My Murray bought last year is excellent.

Enjoyed some TV Shows on Netflix in the wee hours after my rounds. Also played some Star Craft: Brood War. Nice to take a needed nap for 90 minutes and woke up at 8 AM.

Began to ready for my orthopedic appoint later in the morning. Decided to go for the drive to the Town of Whitefield. Here are 20 images of this fabulous New England gem.

Visited my pal's grocery store. Told hime how tasty and tender the shoulder roast it and thanked him again for the low price. Bought 1½ lbs of pepper jack cheese, sliced in the deli for $4.99 this week. The stack is nearly 3" tall.

Drove home to put the cheese away. Visited my garden, looked at the remaining perennial and wildflowers. Saw a female ruffed grouse run off into the forest. They look similar to a chicken, tho much smaller.

Pick up a over a dozen pieces of mail at the P.O., sorted thru the you have been approved ones, and tossed those, along w/the ads in the sorting bin. Time to go to my 10:45 hip surgeon's office to meet the female PA, then the surgeon afterwards.

Had all the vitals done. Bp was 140/70, not bad for one who has been sedentary since mowing the lawn almost 1 month ago and no longer working in the gardens. H.T is 81 w/96% O2. Plus 1.2 lbs weight loss.

Filled out a massive questionnaire, then the PA asked me a ton more. Countered by asking her a score of Q's some she could not A. Then waited for the surgeon to enter the room and get to the details.

He showed me the actual DePuy hip replacement and explained the procedure. He will give me the ceramic on PVC version cupand head, the most expensive and longest lasting. Not the stainless steel model. That had a class action lawsuit. Also signed the Surgerical Permit Contract of Agreement.

Afterwards 4 x rays were taken with the orthopedic ball marker extended to measure the length and the size of the head that fits into the cap. There was little waiting and it took just a few minutes.

Then my blood was drawn for a red/white blood cell count and to ensure that MRSA is not present. Will also need to get another blood test 1-2 days before the procedure

Sounds great to me. Tho not eating after midnight on the morning of surgery will most likely be a challenge. Not even water is allowed. Am ready to be bionic on Nov 10. Most likely 2 days will be needed overnight to recover and gain leg muscle strength to walk up stairs.

Civil twilight is 6:32 AM EDT. Night is 6:31 PM.

Sunrise: 7:01 AM. Set: 6:01 PM.

Length of day: 11h 00m. Length of visible light: 11h 59m. Tomorrow will be 2m 58s shorter.

The temp is 64° (18°C), the high to be 76° (24°C) in partly cloudy skies now, sun later. Tied for the warmest night of the year and most likely the last one that is warm.

Have a fabulous day!

G00d Evening, Claudie, TUrtLE1625, and Farful!

Claudie, Very little rain so far, maybe more rain and wind in the morning!
Glad retirement is allowing you to not have to go out!

Farful, Just 26 more than 1040? Hope all in g00d!
