Good morning Paul and all. Warm here this morn at 65. Supposed to hit 90 here today.
Didn't do much here Sunday. Worried about our granddaughter starting out her marriage
Took our grandson home yesterday. I walked the path that granddaughter
and I walked with the dogs every day during my lunch back when I was working. I walked
to the pond where we took them to wade and swim, a couple weeks ago. All those pups
are gone. New people bought some of the property and posted it but my daughter uses
different paths to walk her dogs now.
We got my wife all set up on social security and medicare. Have to jump through some
hoops because of all the people trying to use scams as a career. Has even expanded lots
since I had to get started a few years ago. So she starts in a few days.
We thought one of our pups might be sick and have to take a trip to the doctor but seems
better now. Difficult to get in these days, have to keep calling in for a cancellation or make
an appointment for a month or two out. Don't think we have any emergency services anymore.
Closest one is in Ithaca, NY, over an hour away. We will keep an eye on her, don't want to lose
one of the sisters.
We are all doing well here, hope you all are.
Pax, the retired police dog, swimming in the pond in 2011.
Good morning everyone...the sun is shining here today and it is so pretty.....Brian is cleaning the veggie garden today beans are done etc.....it is early maybe but the broccoli is still growing....the flowers are still prolific ....I can see the zinnias etc.....will miss that this winter....altho the view of the hillside is still nice......had a dream of quitting smoking again....if you have quit don't try to smoke just one.....it doesn't work.....have a good day
Good morning Kitty and all. 62 here this morn. I know what you mean about the pretty flowers
Kitty. My wife has the pool surrounded in color. My daughter started it when she was living here
and working at a greenhouse, mostly flowers. I've put pictures on here of Summers past. Speaking
of pictures I'm supposed to make up a disk of all the wedding pictures of our granddaughters wedding.
Today we hope to walk around the town we lived in first couple years about 100 miles north of here.
Supposed to be 70 or a little less today with sunshine, so a perfect day to walk.
Our pup Chloe is getting sick on and off so trying to get her in to see one of better doctors we know. Hard
to get in, have to phone in to check for cancellations every morning, same as when Brandy started the problem
with her leg, that turned out to be a hariditory cancer tumor.
Plan on going to the farm Friday. Got my daughter's 7 foot saw sharpened and tried it out here yesterday. Cut
a large branch that went completely through the tree next to it. On the farm there's still two large branches rubbing
the two story garage roof. I'm using a safety harness so I can use both hands working. Hard to do at first but grows
on you. So driving the Monte Carlo SS down to the farm, at least the price of premium gas has dropped, it burns lots
The environment is very pretty Kitty, especially with all the rain we just got here, first just a little, then 0.77 inches in one
storm. As green as it gets with wild flowers here and there.
Enjoy the day all.
Constantia, NY next to Oneida Lake. With grandson, Brandy and Cocoa.
Good morning all....it was 48 degrees here this morning....cool...no agenda as of yet......just walk by the jigsaw puzzle and put a piece or two in.....that is how I do it...Brian will sit there for awhile....I haven't the patience.....hope everyone has a wonderful smoke free day.....
A very nice three days in NYC. Enjoy the Labor Day weekend everyone.
Good morning Paul, Kitty, and all. Very cool here this morn, almost as cool as yesterday morn.
40s then and 54 now. Pups were nervous and woke me with little sleep but will get a nap later.
My wife is going out on a glass bottom boat with one of our daughters for wife's birthday. Hope
they both get through it safely, a small boat with oars.
I don't have the patience for those puzzles Kitty. I did work on getting the bearings greased in that
antenna rotor yesterday, glued the ends of the windings so they don't come unraveled more, and
glued the windings down into their holder. Will try to solder the end of the windings and reassemble
the rotor next time I get down there. Have to get this thing working and get the antenna up before
Winter. My dad did those puzzles on his dining room table, seems like they were 500 to 1000 pieces.
Something like that. Sounds like Brian has just about finished the garden and has a break for a while.
We had a good time up north though we couldn't walk the pups through the neighborhood where my
wife lived when we met. To many dogs and our 8 month our pups go bizerk when a dog is near, hard
to hold onto them. We talked to wife's brother's wife and their son there, then went out of town to
visit her other brother and wife. Out rural I walked the pups couple miles while wife visited. Lot of new
hunting camps sprung up there. All they have for a building is sheds about 10 feet by 15 feet. Maybe
bringing in RVs for hunting. Also, some families with kids camping there now. Probably because of the
rent problems. Hope they have a place to Winter, their campers can't be heated in the Winter.
We have Saturday clear this weekend, then rain next 3 days. Heavy rain Monday. So wife and daughter
will head out today.
I will need a light jacket to walk the pups this morn.
Hope all enjoy the day.
Two grandsons on Oneida Lake where wife lived when we met.
Glad you were not hurt, Ernie. Enjoy the day everyone.
Good morning Paul and all. Very rainy here all night and all day, couple inches of rain. I guess
you mean cutting branches Paul. There's others that need done but out of my reach so they
just have to go on where they are. Especially the huge branch above the electric lines my brother
thinks I'm going to cut. I would rather it just fall on the lines. My wife's aunt's boyfriend got
killed that way and I'm sure many others.
I just checked and no water coming in at our trouble points, is raining hard though, causing big
splashes on the pool. I'm certain I will need to drain some water off the pool today so it isn't
above the skimmer and nothing gets skimmed off the surface of the water anymore. We put a lot
of money and work into not getting flooded anymore so glad it's working. A lot more work went
into damage control when we were flooded though. We are on a mountain but not at the top so
get lots of run off and it keeps us wet for a long time. Some houses get their basements filled just
from the run off. We were starting to get mold from the basement staying wet for long periods of
time. Now we have two coats of waterproof paint in the basement, many drains outside, and burms
built up to divert some water. Had to redo many spots around the basement floor with sealer, then
Hope your jogging is going well Paul. Really wish I could still jog, it's much better than walking and gets
you feeling well much quicker. Seems like I have to walk for 3 hours o get what you get jogging 1.5. The
family doctor told me as much but the foot doctor told me how lucky I was that I could walk so well. Many
of his patients can't walk well. I had to stop in 2016 because the arthritis in my feet hurt to much. Soon
after Cocoa dog had to stop because of cushings disease and diabetes. Same year I had to have an Aorta
stent installed. Glad you managed to stop smoking Paul and found you way here.
Had to disassemble part of the Subaru exhaust yesterday and install a different doughnut on the rear of the
catalytic converter. Had a leak, lucky one of the used doughnuts I had worked. Spent the rest of the day
with the pups so wife and daughter could go out shopping, but was happy to get the exhaust problem out
of the way. I see on the neighborhood forum people are having their catalytics stolen. Hope our street light
and cameras keep ours from it.
Hope all enjoy the day, we will probably get groceries today even though most have the day off.
Painting basement walls with waterproof paint.
Run off water by our road.
Good morning everyone....stay smoke free....
I hope everyone is enjoying the smoke free day.
It's been too humid for me to jog, Ernie, so I've just been walking. Have a 5K charity walk/run on the 25th so I need to try a few times before. Last year it was perfect weather, so I'll hope for the same. Not much rain here, forecast was not very accurate. I think some will come tonight.
