Good morning all. Finally able to walk the pups this morn, we did get a few drops of rain but hardly any.
Hope we don't miss any more mornings for a while. Look like a cat cut up your granddaughters jeans,
Susan. Great kids!
Yeah, the cramps were mostly bad on my hands during the trip home, had to keep pulling my thumb away
from my fingers. Then started getting leg cramps when I got home but put the pain lotion on and went away,
before bed. I usually get cramps if I use muscles different than usual, like standing on a ladder.
I've seen the college dorms here at the university but never been in the building and all of us go to college from
home. In the Army saw the guys had one room and a shared bathroom, I lived off post.
I only take vitamin D because it came up low on my blood tests years ago, still stays average so need them. Take
iron because that came up low in the blood test for hemoglobin. Get all these tests in the diabetes tests.
Only doing small tasks here these rainy days. 3 weeks since ordered a Kenwood cable, has to ship from Japan. They
told me couple more weeks this morning.
Supposed to be dry next week, dryer than normal.
Rather sad that they would not accept help from the Red Cross. Not sure I understand. Sounds like a bit of a posh community. I know little of New York except that my daughter’s best friend lived on Long Island. The cost of living was very high. He is an attorney and they moved their family back to Ohio and live quite comfortably.
Cold and damp here. So tired of this wet Spring that we have had. Our flowering trees in the front of the condo are about to burst forth. I’ll have to send pictures when they do so.
That is really not a lot of vitamins…. I take a B12, D3, chewable calcium, and a one a day multi vitamin all per Primary Care Physician.
I fought like crazy when I started with the Cleveland Clinic to NOT take a pill for high blood pressure. I finally resorted to the fact that I needed to do so. I won’t get started on health care for seniors here but I feel it is quite grim.
Carry on. Rainy all day. Cold too. Not much improvement all week. We will travel to Bexley to visit Jim’s daughter. No one available to house or dog sit. So Finn will have to be boarded for one night.
Yes, ripped jeans are very much in vogue. I can’t imagine what you pay for them but I see mostly teens and young adults wearing them. I hope that she appreciates what her parents are doing for her. Apparently will have a semester abroad this coming school year. Oh my!
I think the rationale is their family lived nearby and they didn't need it. I just found it odd how hard it was to get in, since I had never been there.
It is not posh at all. Many of the houses are beach bungalows. None are particularly nice. Lots of police and firemen live there. Some only live there during the summer. You could not buy a place there unless you have relatives or very good friends who already live there. Most of the families have probably been there since early 1900s. So that type of place.
Looks like the geese near me have left for Canada.
An interesting review of the community you visited.
I am wondering if perhaps this community came about with people of a similar faith. We have a few small communities dotted along the shore of Lake Erie. Jim and I visited Lakeside Chautauqua for an overnight. A community that began 150 years ago dedicated to nurturing mind, body and spirit. Small simple homes are there, along with the LakeSide Hotel where we stayed.
Yet, another day of rain. We have Canadian Geese that stay here year round… We have a pond in our community and they gather there. I have a pair of mallards that visit my bird feeder every day and night. I should own stock in a birdseed company.
Yes, another rainy day in Georgia…oops, I mean Avon Lake, Ohio. Rained almost all day yesterday (off and on) between the sun. Today, overall rain.
My health care insurance is now open to a local University Hospital Fitness Center for free. I have used their warm water pool many years ago as part of my rehab therapy. It will be an interesting adventure as you have to call and sign up for a class the night before. Unfortunately my first attempt resulted in no spot available. I’ll keep trying.
Guess we are taking Jim’s new acquisition to a detail shop for some inside work. I think it is a Nissan Z….but I’m not very knowledgeable about the car. It is stick shift and I will probably never drive it!
A trip to his daughter’s home in Columbus this week. I hope the weather improves for all of us because this is getting to be old…….
Good morning, Miss Kitty ~
I hope this finds you well. I miss you posting! Your last post stated that you need rain up there…. Well, I’ll be happy to send you lots and lots from Avon Lake, Ohio. We’ve had a very wet and soggy Spring. Everything is as green as Ireland and the flowers are up and doing well. I have lots and lots of hollyhocks and that makes me happy. My forget-me-nots are doing well too but they will be short lived once the heat of summer arrives. I wish they would last all summer.
Are you still doing rehab?
Write and let us know how you and Brian are doing….
Good morning all. We have the same, was rain all day one day then on and off rain rest of the week. Starting
Saturday supposed to be dry and warmer each day into next week. We were supposed to be rain free this morn
but it changed and our walk before traffic this morn got rained out. Light rain but we don't walk in it.
I have no experience with living communities. Doesn't sound good to me.
Have been working some on little projects. Most this time of year require some time outdoors and just keeps
raining. We have a birthday party for one of our daughters this eve so will be nice to have a get together. I will
head out soon to take care of everyone's garbage. I was going to remove the crankshaft from an engine in my
daughter's garage today but will put it off because of getting ready for today's party. Hope I have the energy to
get it done tomorrow. Crankshaft has to be turned at a machine shop northeast of here. We don't have one in the
towns here anymore. It's to be used for the other Monte Carlo we have. It's a Sport Coupe we bought new in 1984.
Has been sitting for many years.
I have thought of using a fitness center they built where Sears used to be in our Mall but can exercise here walking or
on the elliptical so don't really need it for a reduced cost or free. Right now I don't have to fire up a vehicle to exercise.
Good luck to Jim with his car detailing. Also, have a good trip. I also wonder what Kitty and Brian have been up to. Know
they've been working on different projects. Kitty will be smoke free 16 years in a couple months.
Have a great day all.
Allis Chalmers diesel with brush hog I fixed the hydraulic drive on. Had no experience on them so was touch and go.
This is Susan (phoebemagnolia) from the Sensational Senior group. Where would I post a message that many former/current members would see? Thank you for any information you may give to me. I rarely venture away from the Senior Group. Susan
Dear Sensational Senior friends ~
I received a call this afternoon from a dear friend, my mentor for years in this group. Kitty Arnold (I called her Miss Kitty) actually rescued me from my original Nope-vember group when it ceased to exist and welcomed me with open arms into the Sensational Senior Group. She was instrumental in keeping this group alive and I am sure many will remember her contributions.
Kitty has been diagnosed with lung cancer and is awaiting more tests. She asked that I send a message here and tell the members that even though her fifteen year milestone mark will be in July, she now has cancer. She wanted me to tell you that it is never too late for anyone to quit.
We are hopeful that this was caught in time and with the necessary medical intervention she will be well again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and I personally want to thank her for what she did to help me and so many many others in their journey.
