Hi Carolyn,

Nice to hear from you.  Happy Fourth of July week-end!   Always a fun week-end to celebrate my youngest daughter's birth.  And how is it possible that it was forty-one years ago?   So, our family will gather at a fun restaurant on Whiskey Island.  It's chilly here today but thankfully no humidity.

I had a total knee replacement April 15th and that went very well.  I've been walking on my own for at least two months.  Kicked the walker and cane to the curb quite early.  I still have discomfort (stiffness when I sit) but everyone assures me that is normal.  Six months to feel normal and NO pain which is wonderful.   Molly still teaching kindergarten.  Her daughter is going to Kent State U in the Fall, grandson will be a freshman.   Little Bronwen, at 3-1/2 has my heart.  She calls me...MY OMA.   We watch her play t-ball (runs like a girl) and grown leaps and bounds.  She will be an only child also.  I enjoy each and every moment with her.  Jim and I are doing well.  Soon to celebrate 2 years of marriage.  Plan on short trip to the Finger Lakes in New York.  All is good.

Finn had cruciate ligament surgery in March.  He has arthritis in his hips and right now, a huge hot spot.  I might as well be making mortgage payments to my Vet.  It is what it is.  I love him and he will be ten years in January.

So nice to hear from you.  At least we conquered smoking.   I know have asthma (smoking?)  quit sooo many years ago.  Use an inhaler twice a day and seems okay.  

Love, Susan and Finn   Bronwen with all of the girls (I saved them all) Fisher Price toys.  Anything look familiar????

Loved the picture of the Monte Carlo.  Think I told you we had one ordered.....in the early 70's and bought our first house.....decided to not do too much....so it was cancelled.  Wonder if late husband ever regretted that?

Happy Fourth of July week-end.  Are you close to any large city hospital.  Surely, there are Drs and Nurse Pract. that can help you with diet and medication.  I don't blame you about the medications.  For every one you take, there is a SIDE EFFECT that is not good!

Carry on, I say.  Happy 4th

Hi Miss Kitty,

Happy July 4th week-end.  41 years ago today.....I was about to give birth.  Always remember that time, right?   Megan was easy actually.  Dr. was on his way back at 6:55 p.m. to do a C section.  Luckily, she made up her mind and all happened very quickly.  No anesthesia.     Must have been crazy to say "no" but all was well.

I think my mind is somewhat foggy from the anesthetic I had for total knee surgery.  I've read a little about this phenomena.  Rumor has it that it takes months if not a year for it to dissipate.

Maybe it's my age.

Made brownies and strawberry shortcake for the gathering.

((hugs))   Susan

Then, I shall have a small brownie (with Hershey's candy bar inside) and a piece of homemade strawberry shortcake just for you.   So trying to lose weight.....so it will be a small piece!

Cold here.  Just ironed a pair of slacks, have a sweater ready and probably a wool cape.  Brrr.  They want to sit outside and eat.  A band is coming there tonight.  BRRR

((hugs))  Susan

Good morning Susan and Kitty.  Happy birthday to your daughter.  My granddaughter

will be 18 soon, she doesn't hang around old grandpa anymore.  She came over to swim

with her boyfriend a few days ago. 

I remember you selling your husband's Jeep because it had to be put in 4 wheel drive.

Wife and I rode in a Monte Carlo in our wedding procession.  I have a picture but you

can't tell it's a Monte. 

My Dr wants me to take more pills.  I'm not sure if I'm going to tell him I have discontinued

these diabetes meds.  My readings are lower than the other 3 diabetics I know.  Last visit

dr wanted me to double or triple statins, I can barely stand to take a little, they aren't a good

med.

Brandy rarely putting weight on her bad leg anymore.  Oncologist wants to do another infusion

on the 7th, I'm not sure if I want to go on with pain management or not.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Couldn't sleep.  Glad your back is improving and you're feeling better.

I exercised yesterday and got a small piece of sheet metal cleaned and painted to cover a

small hole under the Subaru.  Took a plastic shield off to work on brake lines couple years

ago and one of the mounting bolts ripped a hole in the undercarriage instead of just backing

out.  I need to install the piece and paint it with undercoat paint.  Should get that done today

and get another coat on it.

I need a dry few days to get the lawn and a field around the farm house cut down in PA.  Need

to stop in the middle and take garbage to the land fill, hope Tuesday will be the 3rd dry day.

Have a good day.

Ernie
