Good morning Kitty.  Some cold days but warmer days coming.  I will take care

of everyone's garbage today so I can go help on the farm tomorrow.  We have

appointments Wednesday and Thursday.  I need to be here Thursday for the

heavy rain along with the snow melt in case of the basement getting water.

Wife was looking for some shams for her new pillows and could only find them

on Amazon.  I have an account there so I ordered them for her.

Cold out so mostly working in the basement with my little heater.  Found a guy

that might be able to give me a little help on this other amplifier also.  Both amps

have serious problems.  Tracking them down isn't easy.  Put the one I just got on

hold until the guy in California can find some time. 

15 years is going by for lot's of things.  Cocoa born, got the Subaru Baja, we all stopped


Wishing you and Brian a good week.


Amp I'm working on these days.  Still to talk to brother on the farm.

Good morning Kitty.  We had the same weather, upper 40s today.  I have a dentist

appt Thursday, but a simple one also,  today we get my wife's car inspected. 

I woke in the middle of the night yesterday so I didn't get down to the farm, now it

will have to wait a couple days.  I took Melatonin for years to help me sleep and stopped

it a little while ago since I'm retired and have control of my days.  A little sleeplessness

once in a while but another med out of my life.  I did get some more sleep midmorning

so did get a little done later in the day.

Took a couple more steps in the troubleshooting of my amplifier.  Still not working but

always closer.  I'm so lucky to be able to live my life and have the family I have.

Talked to my brother on the radio briefly.  Will get down there to help them Friday or

Saturday probably.  I Will finish the hydraulic drive on that Allis Chalmers tractor pretty

soon, it's about done. 

You all have a great day.

Saying adios to all of my friends on the Sensational Senior Forum.  Heading out Saturday morning to Siesta Key.  Kitty ~ if I get to Sanibel, I will tell it that you said "hi".  Hoping for warm weather and sun.  Leaving the freezing rain, sleet and snow behind for now.  See you in two weeks.  Susan

Dear Miss Kitty,

Leaving soon...Saturday a.m. for Siesta Key.  If we get to Sanibel....I will say Hi to your beautiful place.  Looking forward to leaving the freezing rain (*now), sleet and snow all behind.  ((hugs))  Susan

Good morning Kitty and Susan.  Hope all is well with everyone.  Enjoy your vacation

Susan.  Our rain and 50 degrees is over, now the flash freeze has started, 32 now.

I will probably make it down to the farm today, if the weather seems okay by 9 or 10

AM.  Looks like it's started snowing for now.

Went to the dentist yesterday.  One tooth they want to grind down, do a root canal,

then put a crown on it.  I tried to call back and get the name of the problem but they

wouldn't give it to me over the phone so it will keep until August when I go back.

If I get it done it won't be this year anyway. 

Have a good day all.

Good morning Kitty.  Glad you had some good weather.  We still have ice and snow.

I've delayed my trip down to the farm until Sunday.  No use taking the chance of

slipping off the road. 

Have only worked on my amplifier last couple days of rain, snow, and wind.  Found

a way to use a piece of test equipment to troubleshoot it so don't have to have it

installed in the station.  Now it's over on the repair table. 

We have the grandkids Monday while my daughter goes to the dentist down in the city.

Granddaughter is working but will see if she can make it over. 

Enjoy your day.

Good morning Ernie and Susan...the sun is partially shining, and it is up to 30 degrees....not too busy today and our younger daughter invited us for wine time....always pleasant....Brian is going out to work on the stone wall...good use for the stones and it looks so pretty....he compares it to making a puzzle finding the right stone to fit in the right place...other than that a quiet day....


From: Cocoa60


Good morning Kitty.  Was cold here to work on a stone wall, 20 and dropping yesterday.

Plus we has a snow belt come through with strong winds.  Glad Brian got a chance to

work his puzzle.  Wine time with daughter sounds fun.  Don't remember if we got any

sun.  The solar lights at the puppies graves were on still when I went to bed so we must

have gotten some. 

I worked on my amplifier a little.  Ruled out a couple problems and came up with a couple

questions in my mind.  We took down the Valentine window and all the other Valentine

decorations around the house.  We put up some Saint Patrick's shamrocks, some green

bead strings I got at the parade, some green light strings, and other stuff.  My grand kids

ride in their dad's police car in the parade.  It's usually to cold for my wife to go watch but

I usually go.

Will finally go to the farm this morning.  Over two weeks so I'm over due but woke up early

the day I was supposed to go.  Appointments and weather got in the way since then.  If I

slide off the road and damage me or the Subaru I probably wouldn't go back until Spring.

Enjoy the day, sounds like the good life you're having.
