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!!

Hi Ernie ~
Thinking of you and hoping that all is ok. Unusual for you to miss posting!!!  Perhaps, computer problems!  

Sunny here.  Will be elated with the time change in a few weeks.

Good morning Susan, Kitty, and all.  28 here so ok.  Love seeing Finn and Kayla.  Very happy

Kitty is complaining about the weather, good sign I think.  I went down to the farm Monday

for routine maintenance, but then Tuesday the frig went bad on the farm, so back down to

PA on Wednesday.  Frig was shorted and blowing fuses.  Brother had a new one 100 yards away

in one of the trailers.  So had to remove the trailer door, take the handles off the frig and get it

across the unfrozen yard.  Did manage it and cleaned the cooling fins on the new frig.  It was

empty in the trailer but still running for three years in with cats.  Transferred all the food, insulin,

stuff over to the new frig.  They also had Pepsi in the new frig that had leaked so took while to

clean the frig.  So read the posts here yesterday morn but didn't get back later to post myself.

I drink caffeine coffee when I drive long distance so don't dose off and wreck.  That disrupts my

sleep when I return home but better than dying. 

We have had some sunny weather and snow.  We have another small snowstorm this evening, 3

or 4 inches is all.  Should melt soon, have 40 degree days after.  Our gravel driveway isn't frozen so

makes a mess trying to use the backhoe to remove snow.  I will just drive over it and let it melt this

time.  I have gravel messes to clean up with shovel and stone rake now.  We have had flowers coming

up and Ly-lack shrubs budding, so many 40 and 50 degree days. 

This PC still chugging away after 12 years I think, the cooling fans are to loud sometimes but I've added

other fans and it didn't help.  This was an expensive, well equipped PC back then.  Think I heard this is the

last daylight savings time unless the law is changed, not sure what's going on.  I will be happy to end going

forward and back all the time. 

Sold and shipped that ham radio finally.  The bank contacted the buyers bank and verified the check for us. 

Glad that's over with.  Very heavy to move around, 69 pounds in a large box inside of another box.  Has to be

packed carefully.  Been about 15 years since I had to ship an expensive piece of electronics gear.

The pups are doing well, we're out running most mornings when we don't get rain, wet snow, or temps below

19 degrees.  They continue to settle down slowly.  Started connecting both leashes to a tool belt around my waist.

Have a great day all.

Good morning, everyone. 

I don't think eliminating daylight savings time was implemented.  Either was Spring will soon be here.

Hi Ernie,

Happy that all is o.k with you.   A very very rainy day here in Avon Lake.  It's supposed to rain into tomorrow.  Lakeshore and other flooding areas issued.  I hate to think having to take Finn out this afternoon!  

No flowers even poking through the ground and no lilac bush budded.  You must be in a more tropical location....lol.    

Carry on...enjoy the week-end.   Susa


From: Susan1206


Hm….  Google said that the U.S. Senate passed the Sunshine Protection Act of 2021, which would abolish clock changes in favor of daylight saving time year-round.  That was three days ago….

So, we will see………..

Rain, Rain go away….I have to take Finn out to play (oops potty) and it is pouring.

Enjoy the week-end.
