Hi Ernie,

Lovely picture of Brandy.  Thinking that she may have some German Shepherd in her......  Quite thin, the way she should be. Finn is over 100+ and that is overweight.  The vet doesn't say much as I think she knows I'm a tad older and Finn probably doesn't get the exercise that he should.  Once the knee surgery is done, I hope to walk a lot more than I have been.  I notice that he tugs on me all of the time....even with the body harness, 100 lbs. is a lot of pressure on your bones.

Ready for some football.  GO BROWNS.  It's been a long time since the Browns have made the playoffs.      Susan

Hi Karen,

Thanks or stopping by and saying hello.  Of course, we miss you.  

COVID has changed our world.  I'm scheduled for my vaccination on February lst and it can't come soon enough.  Just want things to be normal.......

Going to watch the Cleveland Browns football game.  A bit of snowflakes in the air.   Susan

Hi Kitty,

I figured out how to change my password so my cell phone can now take and receive FORUM messages.  It makes it easier when I send pictures.......  

Our life....full of passwords, etc.  Are you scheduled for your vaccine?   Mine will be the week of February lst.  Megan scheduled as she is doing Intake at the Medical Practice where she is a Director.  Worry about her....she had her first shot last week.  Dan, at the Clinic had his.   Teacher daughter will soon have hers......

((hugs))  Susan

I am registered but haven't a time scheduled....really a mess....CT isn't doing a very good job...if I was back in Sanibel I would have already had the shot...my busiest time of the day is watching the sun rise and the sunset....LOL

Morning Kitty.  Glad you are able to do more with less pain.  That's reason for the surgery.

Should get better and better.  Hope my mother in law gets better.  Right now she just does

walking from one end of the house to the other 3 times.  I don't know how often.

We saw an 8 point buck out in the woods died of old age or was shot and not found.

Daughter wants the antlers for some reason.  We will get them for her next time go through

there. 

The phone has a paint drop on it from when they painted the door or ceiling.  Leave it on

there because it's a piece of history for me.  Also, I didn't mention and you can't really see

it has a 9 foot coiled cord on the receiver my mom had installed because I was always pulling

it off it's stand when I was a teen talking to girls.  smile

Another work week starting, so thankful I get to stay here with Brandy.

Have a good day.

Ernie

Morning Susan.  Brandy not so thin, barely see her ribs.  Same with me.  We just

barely keep our weight down.  I can't tell Finn is overweight in the picture, he

just looks big compared to the door.  We walked 8 miles yesterday, a mile more

than usual.  Brandy loves the woods walks because she doesn't have to be on a leash.

Cocoa used to pull all the time but she was around 50 pounds.  She stopped around

middle age.  If it's painful we would notice at a slight pull.

Might go visit wife at her moms.  Brandy can't go inside though, because of open wounds.

Maybe take her for a long walk while I'm there.  Their house is about 100 yards from the road

so she can be lose outside for a while.  Have chickens, turkeys, and goats though.

Hope your day goes well.

Hi Ernie,

A late get up.....awake through the middle of the night!  Phone battery dead and now missing somewhere in the house.  Searched well into the morning hours. When I find it, I'm sure there is a app or device that will "find my phone" to solve future dilemmas.    How did we become dependent on these??? 

A bit of snow ~  haven't seen the sun in weeks!!  

Enjoy your travels to see your wife. Susan

what a shame and waste with the dead deer....we love venison...when we bought this house (I remember and will try to take pictures)  there is a buck head with horns and all on the wall downstairs.  and another set of antlers hanging there too....I had a regular (old fashioned) phone  at one point and had the longest cord possible so I could do stuff while talking start dinner etc.... we are having a clouds come and then sun kind of a day...and it is a warm 41 degrees....

Morning Susan.  We had a couple hours of sunshine on Monday afternoon.  We also

keep getting snow, probably enough that ice will soon form in the driveway. 

Sorry you lost your phone.  I keep mine in a holster on my front jeans pocket so

it's on my side but most girls wouldn't want that. I often think it's strange for

everyone to be carrying a phone, never would've imagined it first 50 years of my

life or so.

Your statement "Haven't seen the sun in weeks!!"  sounds like that song by Kid Rock

and Sheryl Crow.  Think it's Picture.

Have a good day.

Ernie
