Morning Susan.  Brandy not so thin, barely see her ribs.  Same with me.  We just

barely keep our weight down.  I can't tell Finn is overweight in the picture, he

just looks big compared to the door.  We walked 8 miles yesterday, a mile more

than usual.  Brandy loves the woods walks because she doesn't have to be on a leash.

Cocoa used to pull all the time but she was around 50 pounds.  She stopped around

middle age.  If it's painful we would notice at a slight pull.

Might go visit wife at her moms.  Brandy can't go inside though, because of open wounds.

Maybe take her for a long walk while I'm there.  Their house is about 100 yards from the road

so she can be lose outside for a while.  Have chickens, turkeys, and goats though.

Hope your day goes well.

Hi Ernie,

A late get up.....awake through the middle of the night!  Phone battery dead and now missing somewhere in the house.  Searched well into the morning hours. When I find it, I'm sure there is a app or device that will "find my phone" to solve future dilemmas.    How did we become dependent on these??? 

A bit of snow ~  haven't seen the sun in weeks!!  

Enjoy your travels to see your wife. Susan

what a shame and waste with the dead deer....we love venison...when we bought this house (I remember and will try to take pictures)  there is a buck head with horns and all on the wall downstairs.  and another set of antlers hanging there too....I had a regular (old fashioned) phone  at one point and had the longest cord possible so I could do stuff while talking start dinner etc.... we are having a clouds come and then sun kind of a day...and it is a warm 41 degrees....

Morning Susan.  We had a couple hours of sunshine on Monday afternoon.  We also

keep getting snow, probably enough that ice will soon form in the driveway. 

Sorry you lost your phone.  I keep mine in a holster on my front jeans pocket so

it's on my side but most girls wouldn't want that. I often think it's strange for

everyone to be carrying a phone, never would've imagined it first 50 years of my

life or so.

Your statement "Haven't seen the sun in weeks!!"  sounds like that song by Kid Rock

and Sheryl Crow.  Think it's Picture.

Have a good day.

Morning Kitty.  I usually go deer hunting but hardly at all this past season.  We had a lot

going on and I forgot to ask farmers permission until last few days and didn't get it.

Didn't go up to see my wife yet.  She wants me to pick up some stuff at stores that don't

open until late in the day. 

Have my six month blood test follow up appt today.  Good results these days but not as good

as I would like.  Also, it seems as though I have to exercise 4-5 hours a day to keep things in check.

I didn't expect to have to keep up quite so much.

Back in the early 70s the phone company owned all the phones so my mom would've had to take the

phone down to the phone company and have them install the longer cord.  No modular jacks the

either.

Have a good day.

Morning Kitty.  We had a couple hours sunshine yesterday and the day before.  Nice

to see in the afternoon.  Today is cold and if I go visit my wife today, it's in the teens there

this afternoon. 

Dr appt didn't go that well.  I wasn't as strict in my exercise and diet past 3 months and it

showed up in my blood numbers.  I should have a mentor in healthy solutions but all I have

is a doctor that wants to increase meds.  While I want them out of my life. 

I wasn't keeping up watering our plants but saw they were wilting now so playing catch up.  Think

they will make it.

Have a good day.
