Hi Ernie ~
Our first dog was a Collie.  Typical of the breed, she would nip at your pants leg and herd the children and dining room table....  Hopefully, your daughter’s border collie will grow older and settle down.

Cloudy now but sun by this afternoon.

Paperwork today ~ have to begin looking at Medicare insurance plans for next year.   Complicated!

Dearest Kitty ~
Your news of feeling stronger today makes my heart very ?? Happy.    I’m reminded of the quote.... It’s the first day of the rest of your life!

Hoping that each day finds you walking more and doing more and more without pain.  Chronic pain can do one in, for sure!

Paperwork and a few calls today. Looking forward to the debate tonight.

Morning Susan.  Our wind and rain is over, few days to dry out again.  Would be able to get some work done by Saturday but have the wedding to attend.

I just pick my medicare supplement from the menu.  Have a plan from where I worked.  Getting away from Aetna because they always wanted to do reviews with me.

Constantly calling and voice mail.  Had to block 50 numbers or so and blank out my voice mail.

Contacted others and they are happy with Excellus so will change to that.

Have a good day.

Hi Ernie,

I’m going to try and compare Jim’s plan with my Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Since I am considering a knee replacement next year, I’m looking for the best coverage.  I think they all make it very confusing. Must compare apples to apples!

I cancelled the in-house visit that they had set up for me via phone.  They wanted a call between 1-5 pm for an hour    I find all of it a bit of invasion of my privacy   I see my PCP once a year for a complete physical....  too much government/via insurance companies information on all of us floating around out there!

On we go....a sunny day here!  Susan

Hi Kitty,

We ended up watching it ~ not as painful as the Presidential one last week.   TV just reported a few minutes ago, that the next one may be cancelled.   I will be happy when this is all over!

I hope you had a restful sleep.  Time for me to get moving... housework to tend to!

hugs, Susan.

Morning Susan.  A cool morning at 42 and will probably drop a little before going up.  Supposed to warm up to 67 here today.

Probably an expensive surgery you are planning.  I got a pamphlet in the mail comparing the four BC BS medicare supplements,

each one more expensive.  The comparison is probably available online.

Aetna just kept it up all year.  I blocked every number that came in and wasn't on my contact list. 

It might dry out enough that I can finish my last digging job and clean up what's left of my gravel pile.

Have a good day.

Morning Kitty.  Doing good here.  Getting rain from the hurricane today so don't know about a walk, not right now.

My wife, daughter, and granddaughter went digging for crystals yesterday.  I didn't see my daughter's collection.

Wife found a large crystal and my daughter got a lot of rocks with small crystals in them.

I stayed home and dug this ditch we need to drain water away from the back of the basement where the window well floods. 

Not finished yet but lot of it is done.

We went to the wedding Saturday, lot of fun.

Glad you are feeling better.

Ernie
