Good morning to all of the Sensational Senior friends I have made over the years and to many new to our group ~ I bid you a cheery hello from Avon Lake, Ohio.
Twelve years, eight months and one day from smoking the nasty "ciggies" as I call them. Looking back over the years, I smoked for many reasons ~ in vogue way back in the day, as a way to stay thin, and yes, even being stressed or angry. I can't imagine that I would be here if it were not for the Forum.
Yes, it is quite warm. We have returned from a short get away to a remote area of southern Ohio. It was a large VRBO and quite peaceful. I do not ever remember seeing the starry starry night that was ours for three nights. Quite peaceful with the simple songs of the meadow birds. And now, returning to real life. Poor Finn (my 10-1/2 year old Golden) was sent to the Pet Resort where it was reported he would not eat his food.....without my suggestion of adding peanut butter. Perhaps I will have to explore having someone spend the night with him here in our home, rather than board. He's happy now to spend quiet time on the cool tile floor.
On we go. To anyone new here....If I smoked a lifetime and I could quit, so can YOU. You must have willpower and support! Carry on.
Congratulations on 15 years. You were my inspiration and support for so many years and I am forever grateful that I stayed with this group and our Forum.
(((hugs x 1000))) Susan
Good morning Susan and all. Glad you had a peaceful time on your trip Susan. Finn getting older and
none of us are as easily amused and we like the familiar things in our lives. We don't go out long without
our pups but I can see how others life styles would cause separations. We will even less after wife gets her
cataract surgeries. Right now she doesn't drive much.
I'm grateful for these 15 + years without smoking, after 38 years of smoking. Our neighbor is getting a cough
and trying to switch to cigars. Don't see how that will help, maybe some if smokes less. Just saw his outdoor
motion light on in the middle of the night for most. Think he has COPD, at least I hope not worse. My mom did
battle with that for many years.
Ate all my blueberries over the last 4 days so might go pick some more today or tomorrow. Like to detox with
them once a year when they're in season. I eat some processed food like few potato chips once in a while and
eat at a diner with my brother when I go down to PA to help them. I shouldn't eat any processed food being a
Diabetic, especially trying to stay in remission, but do eat a little.
The pups are getting a little better at walking but are a long ways from walking in traffic so still going out before
lots of traffic. I keep one leach hooked to my belt and broke the buckle mount couple days ago. I built one belt out
of two broken one with rivets. Also one of the LED straps I wear stopped working but the company is covering it
and sending me a replacement. A job just keeping up with the equipment. Found it's much harder to completely
control both leaches with my hands and upper body.
Cooling fan quit in the RF Amplifier I reworked earlier this year and they're no longer made so trying to figure out
what replacement fans to use and how to mount them.
Have a great day all.
Finn, our buddy.
Thanks Ernie for the picture of Finn. I think I may have to recruit someone to stay here with him when we travel. I checked in at the venue and he was eating very little. It’s a top notch place to the tune of about $70.00 a night. Decently expensive ~ really don’t like someone being in our home but…. I do have a middle aged gal who walks him three times a day….. maybe I’ll check into her overnight prices! Finn drank excessive amounts of water upon his return!
It has cooled down here and less humidity, we took my bike to a bike shop for some minor adjustments. It’s a Wal Mart special a few years ago. He showed us a Townie that would be more fitting for a senior gal… how do I justify 699.00 for riding in the neighborhoods ??? I’ll be happy if the adjustments are more comfortable for me!
I love Summer but not the heat or humidity! Perhaps Fall and Spring have become my favorite!!!!
Is that the lovely Finn eating a yummy cold treat? I too am 12 years,6 months and 26 days nicotine free. I never would have made it without this forum.
Good morning all. Guess this is the picture Carolyn is talking about, cute. Another cool morning here at 54.
That would be a problem for us, getting someone here to watch our dogs. Think only time we won't have them
with us is briefly for a wedding in September but they will be just a few miles away at my wife's parents so we will
get back to them soon. If we start going on vacations again guess we will plan ones with them along.
You got sunflowers to grow like my daughter used to. Pretty and large. Fall has always been my favorite season
but leads into Winter which seems to hang around to long. The snow is so pretty and peaceful but then gets old.
One of my daughters left her bicycle here and I rode it but couldn't stand up and pedal the way its built. One of
the neighbors left an old bicycle out by the road so I went and got it, I can stand up and ride like I did when I was
young. Tried riding it but had to go around the 5 mile block twice to get the same exercise as jogging it once. That
was before I took dogs with me too. These last 15 years I have dogs with me and would be impossible to make sure
they're safe when cars are coming. I keep the bike because it's old. Think it's a girls bike but that doesn't matter. The
lady neighbor lady died 9 years ago and was my age. Thought about painting the bike with clear paint POR15 and putting
it out by the front deck with the old snow sled I have there.
Went out picking blueberries again yesterday, picked about 12 pounds to last a few days and give some to our daughter and
might give some to a friend. I got stung by a bee three time in the face towards the end of picking. Hurt but at least not those
ground bees. After a short time the pain stopped. Those ground bees hurt for a long time, then burns and itches for about 10
days. My daughter has a bunch of chickens and give us eggs for me and the pups for our breakfast every morn.
Everyone have a great day.
Hi to all.....easy day...grocery shopped etc....treated myself to a lobster for my supper.....so looking forward to that.....Brian doesn't care for all the picking so he is doing some chicken and we will share the side dishes....salad etc....hope you day is going well....the sun just came out.....
Nice to see you post. Congratulations to YOU and to ME on our victory. I pretty much believe I would not be here typing if it were not for the Forum......
Typed a message to you and could not get it to post! Frustrating. How is your grandson doing? In school...what grade? My grands are growing up. Sara, a sophomore at Kent State University, Ryan, a sophomore in high school, little Bronwen almost five.
**Hugs to you. Thanks for keeping in touch. Susan
Yes, that is Finn eating a Frosty Paws. I don't buy them to often....but when I do....I get the peanut butter one and he loves it.
Very hot and humid here. Air conditioning back on.
Did I mention taking my bike to the local bike shop? Very nice gentleman who owns the store. Adjusted my handlebars......seat moved up and back so knees don't hit the handlebars. Suggested I look at another bike that is suitable for senior women....A Townie. A lovely bike, in sage green, for the price of $699.00 I am sure it would be most lovely and easier for me to ride but can't seem to wrap my head around that price for just leisure biking every now and then. Guess I'll stay with my Huffy Wal Mart special.
Will watch the granddaughter's last t-ball game. She's improved from last year....standing with her stuffed animal......now she's hitting the ball from the tee...... Life is Good...
Lobster for dinner sounds wonderful! I'll be over in a minute or two......
Brian prefers chicken? Oh my.
I think we are having chicken tenders, like a stir fry with mushrooms and peppers and onions. If I had my wish, I would have a personal chef cook each and every meal...... Maybe I will buy a Mega Millions ticket ~ rarely every do....but there is a lot of money in the pot.
