Very hot here...,.Ernie... Too hot, even for the pool.

Finn back to eating.  Diarrhea pills helping.  Up to 1-2 cans of premium white chicken canned meat per meal.  LOL.  Guess I need to talk to our Vet to see when he can get back on regular food.

Will have to send a recent pick.  LOL

Stay cool.  I'll be away till next week.  Susan

Dear Diana,

So...you are a fellow Ohioian..... Is that even a word?  I think not.  I relocated in 2011 due to my late husband's health problems to Avon, Ohio.  He needed the Cleveland Clinic and the vascular surgeons.  They gave me an additional three years.  He passed in 2011 and I bought a condo in Avon Lake, Ohio.  Fast forward to 2019 and I remarried.

Your home sounds lovely.  I like old homes... So much charm.

You take care.  I'm on my way to Raleigh Durham and also Lake Norman.  Kitty and Ernie are here for YOU.

Good morning Kitty.  They found my Diabetes when I was getting ready

for shoulder surgery.  I was surprised and it was the beginning of big changes

in my life.  I never knew my parents had it, never told me but everyone else knew.

Now all of us have it except my adopted brother.  One of my brothers has had it for 20

years and got tired of taking care of it.  Now he can barely walk at 69 years old.

Glad not the same for Brian.  Hope his surgery goes well.

Enjoy the day, We will miss Susan for the next week or so.

Good Morning Ernie!

So sad that the farm isnt what it used to be!  I do get it.. my father passed away this past November..and my sister and I inherited his house...(a side note...my parents raised my oldest child..as i was 17 when he was born) after my mom had passed in 2011...my dad moved my oldest son and his GF into the house...the idea was they would clean and cook for him...so he wouldnt be so lonely...that isnt what happened...son had 3 kids...all of which my dad paid for...and supported...neither one of them worked...and do you think the house got clean or my dad got fed (i came in one night to check on him...he was eating frosting..and yes he is a diabetic)  ...of the times my sister and i tried to intervene...my dad. was the one undermining us!  so yep!  I warned them...and the damage was severe...both my sister and i have had to pay out of pocket for my dad's debts...he apparently right before he got COVID took out a huge loan...and he borrowed against his life insurance...My son is still living in the house...and oh!!! it smells soooooo bad...the kids are living there as well...Son does have a job...and he is learning..how to be a grown up!  he is 42!  but we know we are going to have to formally evict him....it is what it is...a mess...LOL  

My hubby rides a Harley ultraglide...  that I bought him in 2015...he bought me a Ridley trike! last year... kinda nice being in rural area...as absolutely no traffic...and straight, flat country roads!  

I was stationed at Fort Indiantown Gap...in the early 90s and lived at New Cumberland Army Depot...near Harrisburg...how close were you to that...

Anyhoot...trying to get my day started...hubby volunteered us for the food pantry distribution today
