Good morning and good going with stopping the poison smoke.

Good morning all.... 0 sunny degrees this morning...still grateful that going out would be "if I want" and not have to go...hope your day is wonderful....

Good morning Kitty.  Was -16 here yesterday morning, 11 this morning, much warmer at 11.

Think I only went outdoors yesterday to get the mail.  Most of yesterday worked on my amplifier

in the basement.  Have made some progress but mostly just learning the amp and how to test it's


Will be going down to the farm tomorrow or Thursday, likely tomorrow. 

Haven't had any pizza evenings lately, daughter doesn't want to travel in the cold.  We did have

pizza at wife's brother's home up in Fulton, NY.  Hadn't seen them in years because they don't get

along with part of the family. 

Have to take Subaru Baja in for a recall Wednesday.  Took it in once but turns out they replaced the

airbag with another defective one so it wouldn't be rusted for a while longer.  Hope they have one

without defects this time since they didn't tell us the last one was a temporary replacement.

Stay warm.

Morning Kitty.  4 degrees here this morning.  Going down south to the farm this morning.

Tomorrow is taking care of garbage and Wednesday have to take my Baja in for a recall

for the second time on the same airbag.  Farm house has to be cleaned up a little before

they drown in garbage.  I put fix a flat in one tire that's been leaking slowly yesterday, then

drove around a little to try to seal it up.  Drove on some of Brandy and I old routes.

Still working on the vhf amplifier but think I will for a while.  Testing, adjusting inductor coils,

studying, learning.  Not an easy thing to accomplish.

Feel bad for Susan and Finn.  Finn's getting old and they both have to live through it.  Lost our

Brandy a few years early to cancer.

Hope you enjoyed lunch with your daughter.  We have some pretty sunsets and sunrises.  I'm

still not doing much outdoors, just getting Baja ready for the trip.  Got up to 29 here yesterday.

Have a good day.

Good evening, Miss Kitty ~

Most unusual for me to be signed on in the evening and posting so late.  Jim attending an AA meeting and dinner.  I thought I may go to our annual HOA meeting but the idea of going out in the cold and snow with 8-10 inches on the ground, just didn't appeal to me.  So, I ate a bowl of home made chili and will revisit the last session of The Crown tonight.

If the weather keeps up and it is supposed to, I will be more than ready to head to Siesta Key mid February.  I hold fond memories of the time spent at your home, lunch at Captiva and the walk to your beach.  We really were fortunate that year to have very warm temperatures.  I hope we are as lucky.

Take care.  Stay well and safe.  My Pulmonologist told me that despite the vaccine and booster, they are seeing patients getting COVID.  Advised me to take the Booster in another three or four months.  I feel as though it may never end!  ((hugs))  Susan

Good morning Susan and Kitty.  Warm 24 here this morning, snowing on and off.

I went to the farm to clean yesterday and drove back on snow covered roads, my

first experience doing that this Winter.  Was tricky at first. 

That's gotta be great going on vacation to Florida.  I remember you going down to

visit Kitty.  Also, the shells she was shipping. 

I need to venture out again today to take care of everyone's garbage, then Wednesday

for a Subaru airbag recall.  Otherwise it's very cold lots of days and I don't go out much.

Have a great day all.

Good morning Kitty.  Yeah, back in the cold front again.  Have to venture out to take the

Baja in for it's recall.  At least I didn't have to buy a used truck at the prices they're getting

right now.  Like the Baja too.

Took care of garbage and talked to one daughter for a while.  Shoveled the few inches of

snow from our driveway before I left.  Then helped a grandson shovel their driveway.  Our

daughter made two pizzas for them just as I was leaving.  She had her jewelry polisher running

in the bathroom because it's so noisy.

Had to work on the little heater I have for my little area of the basement so didn't get any work

done on the amplifier, needed a break anyway.  Borrowed a different one from my daughter

while I fix this one. 

Thought you would like the Florida pictures.  My sister is down there now until April, I think.

This is her 6th day there. 

Having good days here, feel so rich with my life.  Glad you are having good days.


Baja before all the snow.
