Good morning Kitty.  Cloudy here this morn but 61 degrees, so not that cool.

Mowed grass here Thursday and the farm on Friday.  Cut some low hanging

branches on the farm. 

Got a late start yesterday.  Someone rented a car in my wife's name in NYC. 

She got a bill for tunnel tolls they didn't pay in April.  I printed her credit report

yesterday and they didn't open an account to charge it to, in her name.  So we

can't figure out what's going on.  Just took care of the cats and mowed the lawn,

then ate dinner with my brother.  I just eat a salad. 

Today is my niece's grad party up in Morrisville, NY so get Brandy's shorter

walk in.  I need to get to the farmers market before we leave, they have greenhouse

sweet peas in June. 

Have a good day Kitty.

Hi Ernie,

Just a quick note to my two Sensational Senior friends ~ time gets away from me.  I rise late and usually have coffee on the patio and wake up very slowly.  I am mindful of the years I woke at 5:30 and was in school by 6:45 a.m. ~ I guess I don't feel THAT guilty.

So, Brandy continues to enjoy her life which is good.  I've noticed that Finn has become more stubborn in his latter years.  He does what Finn wants to do.  We woke to his growl and bark at 3:00 a.m. as some type of critter must have come into our domain.  He rarely ever barks ~ so when you are in a dead sleep, it is a bit alarming.

Cooler today.  Strong storms over the Lake are pushing showers here.   Hugs,  susan

Hi Kitty,

Time gets away from me as I said to Ernie.  Slow to start each day.  9:00 a.m. rise and rarely get going until 10:30 a.m.  Finn a walk and I jut don't take the time to go to my computer.

A few showers here.  Purchased some additional perennials and would love to get them planted.  A gal kindly gave me Sweet Annie and I need to place it in a large pot.  Are you familiar with the fragrant seeds often brought in or made into arrangements?  I just love it.  Very difficult to purchase or find.

So, I've placed delphiniums and coneflowers and my herbs all together.  Some critter ate the dill off, so now it is recovering in a pot.  Love, love to go to my garden to snip fresh herbs.

Hope you are enjoying the summer.  ((hug))  Susan

Continue to recover.  Walking very good....no cane....on my own...just a bit slower than normal.

Ahhh....Karen who has the Samoya and the Goldens?   How wonderful!  I'm friends on Facebook if it is the same one.

Tell her I said hello.

Asked the Pharmacy why I feel so rotten?   She asked how long I had been on the same antihistamine and I told her since September. She said I may have developed a tolerance and need to switch.  Hm...wonder why my PCP and Allergist didn't think of that?

Enjoy.  Susan

Morning Kitty.  I had a little hard time parking at the farmers market. 

I did get some sweet peas, that and 2 tomatoes, $48. worth, so lots of

peas.  Wife and I love them uncooked.  I can't find them in the Fall.

We went to wife's family up north.  I drank to much at the grad party.

But had fun.

My other niece in the same family is very sick, something wrong with

her immune system and her heart.  She showed me the horse farm

where she keeps her horse.  She had two because the other niece gave

the one back she had given to her.  So she was working over 40 hours a

week at the farm to pay for two horses boarding but she gave one of the

horses away to someone she knows.  They had two horses but both in

their 20s died of old age.  This is the sick niece and her parents say she

won't be able to work at the farm after a medical procedure she has

coming up.

Played the board game, sequence, up there for hours.

Have a good day.

Morning Susan.  I'm getting up very early because Brandy can't walk in the heat

anytime but more so now that she's sick.  She goes a mile or mile and a half, then

she slows down beside me and starts looking at me.  Cocoa was much less timid, she

would just sit down until I turned around.  Brandy spends much more time in the

bedroom laying on a bed on the floor. 

We've had some storms.  It's 54 this morn, so some cooler. 

Sorry you're feeling poorly, hope the med change fixes it. 

Have a good day.

Ernie
