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.
congrats on granddaughter graduation....she is so pretty.....glad you listened to her years ago....and I will hit 14 yrs in July....wow....still can't believe I made it....but so glad I did.....
Hello everyone. Looks like summer has arrived.
I went to a Mid-Summer festival near me last night. They had a huge Maypole. It was entertaining.
Time to brave the heat. Enjoy
Good morning Kitty, Paul, and everyone. 69 out this morn, I remember Cocoa didn't like
jogging in these temps. We have rain coming in a couple hours for a brief time. Much
cooler day at 75 though.
Kitty, didn't you stop smoking in 2007? So it's 15 years, right?
We have our grandboys and their dogs today while my daughter goes to NYC for dentist
appt. Also, wife's parents are stopping by on the way back from a reunion. I'm surprised
they attended the reunion, over 90 degrees and they are older than us. They were going
to just stay at the house down there in PA. Maybe they will stay a while and put up with
all the dogs.
I decided to take the old battery from daughter's garden tractor and get a new one, have
been jump starting it for a month. I need to do the same for my wife's father, he's using
a booster box to jump his tractor. Was surprised the battery wasn't closer to a full charge,
took about 5 hours for my 10 amp charger to get it there.
Mid Summer is a ways off, surprised they don't call it a Summer beginning festival, sounds
Enjoy the day all.
your right....in July....15 yrs......hope your day is wonderful....rainy cloudy day here already 70
I saw some people running yesterday and it was pretty brutal out. Though younger and I guess healthier. The rain cooled it off some today.
I think Midsummer's name comes from being in the middle of the summer crop growing season. But officially it's the 21st for the Summer Solstice, so that may be an invented reason.
Be well everyone.
Good morning Kitty, Paul, and all. 57 this morn, 12 degrees cooler than yesterday morn.
We did have daughter's dogs and our grandsons yesterday, was fun but guess exhausting
for my wife. I took one of our dogs and one of daughter's dogs for a walk up the hill through
the woods but they only got along during the walk, not afterwards. It's a start, I guess.
A lady goes by here at 11 AM jogging in the mid day sun. I don't think I could've done that since
my Army days when we had to sometimes. Think she is in her 50s or so. Sometimes she ran past us
Got the battery for my daughter's riding mower and charged it, will get it installed today when I take
care of garbage,
Bought a water filter cartridge that was defective but tried to use it and damaged an o-ring in our faucet.
Lucky Moen is sending me the parts I need to fix it. Returning cartridge and ordered a new one.
You're doing great in the war to stop smoking Paul. And Kitty, isn't 15 years so great? When 15 minutes
was so tough back then. I'm so glad but, at the same time, I know may that never made it. Some still
struggling, some that are gone.
Have a great day all.
