Morning Kitty.  Rained again last night.  Got some excavating done yesterday but can't move for a couple days now.  I have to go buy some more pipes and have more gravel delivered. 

A long time ago I could call in and talk with my doctors nurse but now I get message people, at least they are people.  I got a number this week I think goes to my doctor's office.  Before the best I could do was get inside the building and they would forward me to the office.

I was only about 12 or 13 when I visited Florida, surprised I remember so many scenes from the trip.  I remember we saw signs, for hundreds of miles, for some resort called Border or something like that.

When I order my prescriptions there is a menu button to push to get one renewed after it runs out.  They quit doing it after you push the button so I have to call the switchboard and get a message to my doctor to renew it.  So they have to have this done every month instead of every 3 months the way it was once and it takes a few days.  I'm getting more healthy and hope to eliminate most of these meds.

Glad you packing is winding down, never again except for unpacking in the north country.

Have a great day Kitty.

Morning Kitty.  Going to be a hot weekend here.  90 today and over 90 tomorrow.  The good thing is that we didn't get soaking rain so the ground should be dry today and stay dry until Wednesday.  Enough time for me to finish the drainage ditches.  Have to go to Lowes this morning to get more pipe.  Should've made it before everyone was off for the weekend but didn't.

Happy day yesterday.  Doctor appt had best blood test results in 7 years.  My 90 day average glucose was inside the normal range for a person without diabetes.

My daughter and our grands made it here last eve for pizza and swimming.  Had a good time and I finally got the pool vacuumed. 

Have a great day Kitty, hope dentist appt went well.

Morning Kitty.  So sorry your back is hurting just as the packing is about finished and you were to enjoy your last few days on the island.  Hope you don't need the chair long and the therapy works.

I've finished the short drainage ditch, about 60 feet.  Have to order a couple loads of gravel for the longer one, about 190 feet. 

Our heat wave weekend is over but supposed to be 88 today so still warm.  It's our grocery day so gotta do that before I start cleanup work in the lawn.

Have a great day Kitty, hope less pain.

Hi Ms. Kitty ~

So very sorry to hear that you are having back problems ~ maybe you have overdone everything with the packing, etc.  Have you tried "warm tubbies"?   It always helps me and I'e used this CBD product that Megan bought for me.  I hope this does not interfere with your travels.  Saying a prayer and hoping that all is o.k.  ((hugs))  Susan

Dear Ernie ~

Wish I had all of your get-up-and-go.  Today, was a bit of a down day (meaning energy level).  I took a Melatonin to sleep and perhaps that caused a left over fog.

Soon, to go on a bike-ride.  Rain, rain all around us ~ everywhere and NOT a single drop in Avon Lake.

And so it goes...Have a good week-end if I don't get back on till next week.   Susan

Morning Susan.  Same rain over here, had to stop work on my ditches for a short time.  Went picking blueberries with my wife and granddaughter.  Took some to one of my daughters homes last night.  My granddaughter and I always take some to widow lady down the road.  There were two but one is gone last few years. They were both smokers, the one left is still smoking at 81 with some bypasses installed.  She quit on Chantix briefly right after her heart attack but it didn't stick.

Working on my daughter's hand mower, it's not that old and isn't a cheap one.  Was getting ready to pull the flywheel and look at the crankshaft key but bought a spark plug to see if that's fouled first.  Will see this morning.

Have a good day Susan.  Kitchen must look nice.

Hi Ernie ~

Beautiful day here in Avon Lake.  Sunny and 72.  The city of Cleveland had 3" of rain yesterday.  Avon Lake (25 miles to the west) had 0 inches.  We are on a point of the Lake and for whatever reason, we have missed almost all of the rain this summer.

Looking for a used exercise bike.....not sure if a new one is worth the price.  Neighbors got a Pelaton or some high end for $2200.  He said it was 0 interest and $60.00 a month.  I just laughed.  I told him I was thinking of a recumbent bike for around no more than $200.00 out the door.  We had a bike once...seemed like a good idea at the time.  Was very heavy and bulky and rarely used.  I guess I will continue to look for a used one... LOL

Will push the weather toward you for the week-end.  Sure hope Miss Kitty's back is better.  That will be a very long trip for her!   Susan

Morning Susan.  We got some rain Thursday, don't know how much.  Ground dried out some yesterday so I should be able to get back to the tractor today.  Was forecast to rain Monday but see a minute ago postponed until Tuesday.  I should be able to finish this part of project by then.

After my two barbers died and last one moved south I started getting haircuts in our mall but they haven't gotten an air filter so they are remaining closed for long time.  Trying to make an appt with my wife's hair salon.  I don't get a haircut for 6 months or so but could use one now.

Yes, this is the time Kitty is supposed to be traveling north, 24th.  Wish them luck.

Lots of times people leave those exercise bikes out for free.  My dad had one he picked up for free back 15 years ago or so.  This year is different so maybe people aren't giving them away this year.  I have a real one but Brandy wouldn't stay near it.  My wife got an elliptical about 20 years ago but rarely used it.  I use it about 1.5 hours a day usually along with our 6 miles walking.  Still trying to push Diabetes into remission.  Think it's working but a long slow process.  I'm off one of the more dangerous meds I was taking, waiting to stabilize.

Have a great day.

Ernie
