Good morning Kitty, Paul, and all.  Only 14 here this morn but no wind at all.  Very grateful not smoking

here.  Doubt would still be alive.  I would still have Diabetes to contend with along with the smoke and

still have vascular problems.  If we were alive would be going down hill fast. 

Hope you are healing well Kitty and feeling well.

Went to the farmers market yesterday morning.  Just for laundry detergent and some lavender soap. 

Managed to get out of there without spending on something else.  Was snow covered roads here but

all wheel drive and Blizack tires made it through without slipping or sliding.  Run Winter tires year round

on the Baja because it's hardly used in the non snow months with the SS and the bike running. 

Worked on radios, got a microphone working that had a switch problem.  Figured radios were folding back

on a dummy load or the beam antenna, antenna not resonant I guess.  Not sure why on the dummy load.

Have to think on that one.  Soon I will have the cable built to run the late model radio on the amplifier with

auto tune to the antennas.

We might get 7-8 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday depending weather any of it is rain or not.  It's

the same storm caused California so much grief. 

Might go down to the farm today.  Wife and daughter might go shopping today, then will have to postpone my

trip to later in the week.  Will see in the coming hours as morning unfolds.

Looks like it's the elliptical for me this morning.  Temp has gone down to 13, to cold for the dogs.  They will be

restless all day especially with two days in a row with no run. 

See in the cameras a dog running lose outside, don't think I've seen him before.

Have a great day all.  Spring at our door step.

Good morning, to all ~

Back now from our trip to Anna Maria, Florida.  The flights were uneventful although they certainly make flying a bit of a chore (TSA check point) etc.  We enjoyed beautiful weather ~ mid 70's to 80 degrees each day. Perhaps, one cloudy day only.  We did run into the dreaded "red tide" of the Gulf.  Some days better than others.  Coughing and sneezing made a beach walk not fun.  The pool was lovely.  We ate at very fun colorful places.  Attended the Circus of Sarasota with our friends.  We have decided to go next year to Longboat Key (a more quiet area).  Home now, 50 degrees difference.  It's in the 30's.  Twenty-three days till Spring.  Finn did not do well boarding.  Lots of anxiety and not eating.  I will rethink plans to have someone come to our home next time.

Enjoy the day.  Yes, Kitty, I agree, I don't like early appointments.....

A picture of the moon, Venus and Mars .....

((Hugs))  Susan    Sorry, no patience this morning to figure out why I can't upright the picture....

Good morning all.  30 here, good for Feb.  Still snowing from yesterday, the storm that was

flooding in Calif.  Guess some places got snow in Calif. from it that was first since 89. 

Glad you are recovering well Kitty.  Appointments are a pain for us retirees.  I had therapy

for surgery each time had a shoulder fixed.  I stopped both times when I returned to work.

Looks pretty down south Susan.  Stary night.  Looks like you had a good time most of the

vacation.  Poor Finn, at least we're retired and they get much more of our time.

I finally sold that radio, waiting for the check to clear here in NY.  Went to the farm yesterday

to clean up and help with other things.  Sister is wintering in Florida,  Should return later in

March.  She drives up from near Williamsport, PA to help sometimes also.  My drive was uneventful,

what I like.  Drove back out in front of the storm.  I'll be happy when I can ride the bike or drive

the SS, soon.  My Baja is well suited for the snow but to many injured or killed in the snow or ice.

Run snow tires on it year around because it gets little use in the non snow months.

Have a great day all.

Good morning, Sensational Senior friends ~

And, what a GOOD morning it is here in Avon Lake.  The sun is shining, the temperature is to reach 50 degrees, it’s the first day of March and daylight savings time is less than two weeks away….If that isn’t something to be happy about, I don’t know what is!

Finn and I intend to meet our friend Maureen and her Golden, Kayla.  The two Goldens have been friends for years ~ possibly since 2012.  

Finn is in the forefront and Kayla is behind.  Unfortunately due to Finn’s two ACL surgeries, I no longer trust him to be off leash.  

Enjoy the day everyone.  Kitty, prayers for your recovery.  Paul and Ernie ~ sending great weather to you tomorrow.

Hi Kitty~
No evidence of Spring here… not a single bulb popping up.  Yesterday was a warm day and Finn and I took advantage of walking with our friends.  

A trip to the library today as I am presenting a topic on Delftware next week to my Questers group.  

Spring will come soon….  Susan

Indeed we did!  A hint of Spring ~ sunny sky and in the 50’s. 


Finn and his friend enjoying the sunshine!!
