Good morning Kitty.  Sounds like you're getting another grandchild or great grand, congrats. 

Glad Brian is finding things to do.  I haven't gotten into working out in the cold yet but will

eventually.  A little wind and a little lake effect snow here but not the 5 feet like in Buffalo.

Wind chill in the teens here this morn.

Went out and got some birdseed for the bird feeder.  Had some and it was already filled since

the chipmunks seem to have hibernated.  We were getting to many families of chipmunks.

We didn't know we were being over run with them until I caught 7 and relocated them and they

were still everywhere.

Got some waterproof spray for my raincoat.  I did exchange them with LL Bean when they stopped

warrantying their products.  Sprayed the first coat on yesterday.  Made by Thompsons so should work

$100 raincoats and it still is in perfect shape, hope its waterproof again.

Wife's dad in the hospital but her relative up there has the virus, wife still has a slight wound in her eye

from the eye surgery so she doesn't want to risk getting the virus.  We're hanging back here for now.

Enjoy the day all.  Thanksgiving at our doorstep.

Good morning, everyone. 

Not much of an Autumn. Seemed to go from unseasonably hot to cold. Stay warm, enjoy whatever weather we get.

Good morning Paul.  Really cold this weekend, 26 here now.  Supposed to get back into the

30s and 40s after today.  We're forecast to get snow at 6 AM this morn.

Went to the farm yesterday in the Subaru.  Monte Carlo is off the road for the Winter.  Turned

the water off to the outside hose and drained it, also the bathroom out in an addition that isn't

heated.  Think my dad cut the baseboard heat from there.  Did other odds and ends around the

farm, ended up taking up the day.

Think the wind chill goes into the single digits today so stay warm all.

Enjoy the day.

Low was only 29 here but very windy. I went out to jog, and it was like being on a treadmill. Quit after 10 minutes to get coffee. 

Enjoy the evening everyone.

Good morning Paul.  21 here and dropping but I don't hear any wind.  Yesterday we walked against

some strong winds at times.  Having coffee now, usually my only caffeine cup of the day.  Caffeine

blocks insulin and dehydrates.  We had a snow squall yesterday morning around 10, white outs

everywhere for a while, only got about an inch of snow though.

Worked on a door inside the house yesterday, also programming a radio in the basement.  Was only

outdoors to fill the bird feeder. 

Thanksgiving week is upon us.  I think our dinner will be Saturday because of our granddaughters work

schedule.  So during the life of this smoke cessation forum granddaughter has gone from car seats to a

work schedule, marriage, and college.  I'm thankful for granddaughter coaxing me to stop again, chantix,

this forum, and all of us friends that helped each other.

Supposed to start getting warmer for a few days after these low hours.

Enjoy the day all.

Good morning Kitty.  We had lots of sunshine yesterday also.  29 here now, not so bad.  Our

Thanksgiving get together will be Saturday.  Will be great, has been a while since we got together.

Glad your long distance grandson will make it.

Got a few things done yesterday.  Took the dogs for an extra walk around the area in the sunshine.

Couldn't go to far because of the deer hunters being out.  Some just might see thin legs moving and

shoot above them. 

Said on the news this is the worst road traffic day of the holiday, especially 11AM on, so if out on the

road be careful.

Enjoy the day all.

Good morning Kitty and Susan.  Supposed to be a nice sunny day here, might finally work outdoors

on the Subaru brakes.  Our dinner will be Saturday. 

Thanks Susan, I'm thankful for this forum also.  Thankful for many things in my life.Worked on an audio

amplifier yesterday a little.  Took the rider mower out and mulched up the remaining leaves.

Hope you had a good time helping your daughter get ready for the dinner Kitty.

Enjoy Thanksgiving day all.


Pups in their warm days.
