Good morning Kitty.  A cold finish to this week but supposed to be in the 50s next week.

I might go south to see how much help my brother needs today.  They lifted the travel ban

a few days ago.  I'm certain the mess is worse than I imagine.  I'm the youngest in my family

and I can still get around and work well.  I hope to buy the old farm house and fix it later.

It will have to have a good part of the floor replaced.  Then I need to put supports under it

and put a new basement in.  After that start on the inside of the house.  Might be just a pipe

dream.  I think if anyone else gets it they will demolish the house and put a new one in.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning Susan.  Brandy is just a year behind Finn, I think,  She is in her

8th year.  It makes me so sad their lives go by so quick.  We will get back up

to 8 miles soon but I'm still walking in Army boots in case I have to go through

deep snow.  We still have a foot or more some places and snow banks will be

here even through the 50s next week.  I try to put happiness in Brandy's life.

She burns up 7 days or more to my one.

I just had to go over to another window to save a song I hear on Youtube sometimes.

It's "Sweet Baby Jane" by James Taylor.  Can you tell I'm a Bob Dylan fan?

I carry a 2 meter ham radio with me to monitor a ham frequency and listen to music

at the same time.  Also carry a cell phone.  Two different transceivers.  I never could

have imagined a world where everyone would carry a wireless phone  back in the 80s

when mostly just hams carried a short range radio that had to hit repeaters almost by

line of sight.

You must be happy with your new furniture.  Enjoy the day.

Good morning Kitty.  You're right, it's a cold week and everyone looks forward to next week.

Even my sister in law who's dying with lung cancer, is talking about the warm days.  I went down

south to help them yesterday.  I have a back ache from heavy lifting, I think.  My brother's

Diabetes continues to get worse.  Soon will need ramps for a wheel chair and build the driveway

into a wrap around that comes to the house door.

I go to the dentist for cleaning once a year.

Do you plant flowers in the Spring?  I think I'm going to put a tractor tire where my mom had one

on the farm and plant flowers in it.  Painted white.  My brother didn't remember it but showed him

a picture in April 1963 that showed it in the background.  The flower garden was still there in the

70s.  My wife remembers it.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Another cold day then a little warmer.  Seeds sound

great and flowers.  I don't plat either usually but help my daughter some.

She also sometimes plants veggies early indoors.  Not 6 AM yet and getting

light out.  I probably will plant flowers in the tractor tire where my mom had

it back in the 60s and 70s, maybe in the 50s, not sure.

Heard my brother talking on the ham radio last eve.  I set it up for him Friday.

I got the power supply working yesterday but I have to fix the regulator for

the front panel meter lights now.  For the radio I built in 79.  I have other newer

radios, just want this one from the past working.

Have a great day.

Good morning Kitty.  Only 8 here this morn but today is the first warm day of many.

Sounds like you were keeping busy, your back must be improving. 

Brandy and I walked our 7 miles yesterday, I'm still wearing Army combat boots but

won't be much longer.  Hurt my back a little down in PA last weekend,  Throwing those

kitty litter pans and buckets around like they were toothpicks, will have to be more

careful.  It's still hurting on Monday but hope it improves during the week.

Groceries today and walking with Brandy will take up a good part of the day after 1.5

hours on the elliptical, sit ups, and weights this morning.

Turns out both bulbs blew in the radio so don't have to fix the regulator, just get some

bulbs today.

Our laundry is down cellar.  I have a plastic shelve unit down there and a bench next

to it. 

Have a good day.

Hi Ernie ~

Hm.  I'll have to look up Sweet Baby Jane.   I liked the Beatles and Rod Stewart way way back in the day.  Laughing.  

Did you happen to watch the interview with Prince Harry and his wife last evening.  Since I am into the Netflix movie, The Crown, I watched with great intensity.  Very interesting...the Monarchy and The Firm as she referred to it.  I think Prince Charles (future King) if Queen Elizabeth every dies, is far far removed from reality or at least life as we know it.

A sunny day and higher temperature.  Maybe in the 60's.  Finn and I will go for our first off leash venture in many a month.  I hope he does well.  Down 2 pounds on the dog food.  Vet chided me yet again NO BISCUITS!   I told her that I did give him a bit of fresh salmon or meat.  She asked, how much?    She said only 2 Tablespoons per meal.  Ugh..... Poor Finn.

Carry On.  Susan
