Good morning Kitty and all. About 10 degrees warmer here this morn, 58. Supposed to rain in
the afternoon and eve. We did smoke a good part of our lives and very hard time stopping the
addition from being fed. Think I smelled smoke while loading some lumber for my daughter at
the Home Depot yesterday. Think you are very close to 15 years since I passed it in April. I never
remember any dreams anymore, don't know why. I've had times in my life when I remembered
lots of them and sometimes when it was rare but now, none. Seems for years. I often wonder if
a great life trauma would send me back into the addition. I might never find out, that would be
good. I know if something really bad happens people don't care about anything anymore. I was
very close to Cocoa and Brandy and lost them both but many wouldn't understand the relationship
with a close canine friend. doesn't seem like a day goes by that I don't miss them.
I mowed one of my daughter's lawns for her yesterday. She hadn't gotten any sleep the night before
and her tractor still needs jump started because they still haven't replaced the battery.
I hardly have any prescriptions left but picked them up yesterday. I felt good yesterday, wish I could
hold onto that body chemistry every day.
Gotta go get ready to walk the pups, traffic is a mess on weekday mornings.
Have a great day all, doing great here.
The 3 year old that helped convince me to enter this final quit graduates high school Friday.
Congrats to your granddaughter, Ernie.
I occasionally remember dreams, twice a month. Generally, they are odd.
Good morning Paul and all. I'm sure I still dream but no memory of them at all. I remember lots
of them were scrambled or repeated themselves. sometimes would remember them briefly when
I woke but soon gone. I think way back I had dreams where I was smoking and it seemed an ordinary
thing to do, guess that makes them scary. We all remember how hard it was to get out of that world.
Minutes were tough. Never want to go back.
Got the pool vacuumed yesterday, was past due. I got in the pool and cooled down afterward. Had
to put in some PH- to lower the PH, it's routine with a salt water pool. The chlorine the cell generates
doesn't work well if the PH is to high.
We have to go somewhere today to get our granddaughter a graduation present. We don't have an
idea what to get yet. Money gifts just fade and are forgotten. I woke early and couldn't get back to
sleep so that's not going to help the day, maybe get back to sleep soon. My sister has a grandson
graduating this week also.
Hope you all have a nice day. Think a little rainy here, then temperature goes up near 90 for the weekend.
Fun day granddaughter.
Hello all hope your day has been wonderful so far....quiet one for me.....breakfast lunch and nap....typical schedule for me.....a nap is an essential part of the day....stay free and happy.....
Good morning Kitty and all. Warmer day here in the 80s. Wife's parents are going near a
reunion of her mother's side but they probably are stopping and staying in Wellsboro, PA
because of the heat. Wife's dad grew up in the same town I did, that's how I met my wife
50 years ago even though she lived near Syracuse, NY.
I took a few naps yesterday because of lack of sleep the night before. Woke in the middle
of the night and got a leg cramp which woke me up further. Mostly I scraped paint off the
Monte Carlos windows yesterday, think I got it all. Some reason he put a clear coat on after
taking all the taped papers off the windows. I went and found a new place for state inspections
because place I've been going to for decades doesn't seem to want my business anymore. Not
sure what's going on with them. Found a place I saw along the route Brandy and I used to walk
some mornings. The old place was about 22 miles away where I worked a couple decades of my
Today I'm going to a grandkids hs graduation, my sister in PA doing the same thing this week. My
brother in PA is upset she isn't coming to help him this week, very ungrateful. He never had any
kids so guess he doesn't see how blessed we are to be going to these events. I sure do miss the little
girl but happy for her life. I spent so much time with our first grandkid. Have so many memories.
I have many projects to do but still haven't started planning them. The life of a retiree.
Very disappointed with disabled brother. Insists I'm going to cut branches away from a live power line
on dads old property. Says the service might give you a tingle. 220 VAC at 100 or 200 is like a king cobra,
lot more than a tingle. He would need to have the power disconnected for me to mess with it. Risk
enough to use a chainsaw up high. Keeps bringing it up, one of the reasons I only go there every 14 days
or so now.
Have a great day all.
Granddaughter 6 years ago.
don't mess with electric wires unless power is off....and I have discovered that low magnesium is responsible for night time leg cramps.....I have avoided lots of cramps by taking magnesium within an hour of bedtime...........hope your day is wonderful....we are socked in with heavy fog.....
I am 84 and am shocked that Roe v Wade has been overturned....
Good morning Kitty and all. 56 here this morn, thought it would be in the 60s. I take a
magnesium tablet but around dinner time. I expect leg cramps when I spend lots of time
on a ladder or using different leg muscles somehow, but don't think I did that day.
Knew we were in trouble when a rapist was put on the supreme court. Was just the beginning,
still more to come.
We went to our granddaughters graduation. Was something to see, sad to have lost my little girl
but had to happen. Wish my canine friends had only graduated but they're gone. She's going to
SUNY Broome for Early Childhood Education to start. Got some pictures on my Cannon camera
but I have to pull the memory card to get them transferred to this PC. My sister's grandkid is joining
the Army, but that's where I saw that I needed college.
I mounted two more motion solar lights on the house wall towards the pool. Was dark there since
our pole light is blocked from there. Swapped the GPSs between the Subaru and the Monte Carlo
because the one has the speed on the right side where I need it in the Monte, it has a different
transmission than it was manufactured with and doesn't match the speedometer. So have to keep
an eye on the GPS for my correct speed.
I know Kitty, my wife's aunt had a boyfriend killed cutting branches around a live power line. Even
without that I know better. A ground fault interrupt trips at around 20 milliamps or 20 thousandths
of an amp so playing around with 200 amps is reckless. These branches are 10 to 15 inches around.
A home owner would need to prevent this from happening 15 years ago but dad was in poor health
and the brothers that were to inherit the property weren't thinking about the future.
Very warm today, might be in the pool for a while. Grandson is here again but only until later today.
Everyone enjoy the day and stay cool.
Granddaughter at Oneida Lake many years ago.
First husband was a lineman.....I know I already said that.....lovely day....Brian mowed and I did little....very little.....hope your evening is quiet or noisy however you prefer.....
Good morning Kitty and all. 60 here this morn, a little warmer than lately, storms this eve,
I worked at a utility company last 17 years of my career but in a lab most of the time analyzing
and repairing remote terminal boards that control electric and gas flow. We did go out to the
field and help the field techs, more some years than others depending on who was in power.
I tried taking magnesium at bedtime instead of dinner time. Did sleep until the alarm went off
which doesn't happen that often, so hopeful it will help with leg cramps at night. Usually only
happens when I use different leg muscles the day before., like working on a ladder, but didn't see
a reason for it the other night. So thanks for the tip.
I just did odds and ends yesterday, 89 degrees here and warmer today. It's illegal in NY for a
motorcycle to go ahead through a red light even if the bike doesn't trip the light. Got a tip to
put magnets on the bottom of the bike and it may help so put two magnets on my bike yesterday.
I have gone through a red light when making a left turn because just sit there forever and can't
get over to make a right on red turn and try coming back through from a different direction.
I know to look for the pads in the road and stop right at the stop line, just doesn't work at some
There were a lot of lawn mowers running last eve so wasn't quiet here. Guess they were waiting
for the cooler evening air. Would have preferred to live away from other hones but we were young
and poor when we moved here and couldn't be that picky. Then the tornado caused us to invest
much more here. Good chance wherever we lived so long ago, would've had others move in around
us by now anyway. Glad to hear you got out a little for the mowing.
Have a great day.
Pups are 6 months old now.
