Had to smile at your comment regarding shouting into your grandson’s room because that is exactly what I have to do. I’ve voiced my opinion to his Mother a time or two about the amount of time he spends on the computer with gaming but she says he is with friends and that’s the way they communicate. I don’t agree with that but I spoke up once and that was enough!
A shiny but cold day here (9 degree wind chill). Jim has taken his Mustang convertible out of storage for a day or two. He is determined that he can make $$$ on it and is off to the east side to look at another vehicle. Ah… it’s a man’s thing, I guess. I should do something about my aging CRV Honda but it is in great shape, and allows Finn (with the aide of the steps) to go for rides, etc. I’ve not had a car payment since 2012 so I hesitate to do so now. I do love the little Mini Cooper convertibles that I see out and about. I mostly do in town driving and have only 77,000 miles on my Honda.
Well, carry on. Sounds like you have a very busy day planned. I will babysit Bronwen tonight while her parents attend a pre kindergarten meeting. How is that possible?
Good morning, Miss Kitty ~
How are you on this cold February 1st morning (actually almost afternoon). The sun is shining here which is a rarity and it lightens one’s mood for sure.
We are having Jim’s family of eleven for dinner on Sunday. Another round of company that leaves me quite tired. Jim is cooking a Julia Child Beef Bourguignon (spelling) and salmon. He also wants risotto and asparagus. My way of cooking is to have one entree, one vegetable, etc. etc. but he is hosting his family so I shall set a proper table and be quiet about it all. LOL.
Last week-end, we had my tribe (only four plus Bronwen) Much simpler…I made lasagna and a Cesar salad. One of my son-in-laws made pizza from scratch which was delicious and I bought a tiramisu cake from a local bakery. It took me all day Sunday just to recover from that…….. The joys of entertaining.
Have a fun filled day…whatever you are doing. Susan
Good morning, everyone.
My nephew played video games constantly with his friends from 13 through the end of college. It exasperated my sister. But he grew out of it. He told me he only plays now when he sees his HS friends. I guess it is like TV for us and radio for our parents. My nieces would occasionally play with him, but not much and never with their friends.
We'll see if the groundhog sees his shadow today. Happy Candlemas,
Happy Groundhog Day from the shore of Lake Erie. I am praying for an early Spring! Susan
I am hoping that will be the same with my Grandson! I only raised daughters and that was quite a while ago.
Heavy freezing spray warning for our area….,seems like a strange weather forecast to read. At least the sun is shining as I must go to the grocery store this afternoon!!
Happy Candlemas to you as well!
Good morning Susan, Paul, and all. The real cold snap still a few hours away here. 24 here now, warm
compared to the temps coming. Think it's to cold to walk the pups until Monday but we do take them
out around the lawn and field during the day for a short walk.
I have about 140k miles on the Baja I remember when you sold the Jeep and bought your car. Only Mini
Coopers we see around here are college students. Nearest dealer is over an hour away.
Didn't make it down to the farm before the cold snap so will be Monday or Tuesday before I get there now.
Glad Finn is still doing well. Our pups are doing well also.
I will have to find indoor work to do next few days, hope you all enjoy the day.
Good morning, everyone,
6 degrees here early. Headed out in a bit for an early Red Cross shift. Hopefully no fires or any other reason to be outside. Though I always preferred extreme cold to heat, my tolerance for freezing weather has mellowed a bit with age.
I logged into ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence, website. It's pretty amazing what it can answer. The world is headed towards one of those science fiction movies where computers take over.
Good morning Paul and all. It's -12 here. At first I saw 12 and didn't see the negative sign, so small
on these readouts. Thought we wasted our time leaving a faucet running but we didn't. Just the
kitchen where its on an outside wall. That will include all the pipes down to the well also.
Most of our things have computer control, hopefully we won't ever get those electromagnetic waves
that take out electronics because most things aren't built to take over manually. I did a lot of work on
a 2004 vehicle in the computer control and quickly found out it had 8 computer modules in it. Saw a
later vehicle like it had 18 computer modules in it. Makes it harder to troubleshoot until you learn to
look at the systems differently. But we couldn't do the things we do in devices without computer control
and other things would be so expensive we wouldn't have many of them.
Looks like I will finally get down to the farm tomorrow. Supposed to be 25 degrees in the morning and 40s
during the day. Have to go to the old home and try to locate a vase my sister in law wanted to be buried in.
Among other things we need to get done. Brother got pulled over on route 15 down there going 30 in a 70
mph speed zone and had to leave his car there. He got held up after dark and he can't drive hardly at all
after dark. Also hit a concrete berm, blew out a tire and cracked a wheel a different day. Lucky he has friends
that will help him in emergencies because it would be impossible for me to keep racing 200 miles all the time
to help him. Very hard on our vehicles too.
Very glad I don't have to go out and work in the subzero weather. No critical jobs to be done. It was forecast
well. Feel sorry for the people that have to be out there, soldiers, first responders, and such.
Hope everyone has a great day. Think tomorrow morning the pups and I will be back out on our runs. Today
will be another day they will be stir crazy, cooped up in the house. They do go out around the pool and play so
they get to feel the cold and know why they can't be out long.
Good morning, Sensatiional Senior friends ~
A "heat wave" today with a balmy 51 degree temperature, 44 degree wind chill. Expected rainfall soon. And so, goes another day marked down in February. I will be counting the days until April when we see signs of Spring.
Excited for our trip soon (ten days) to Anna Marie after revisiting the pictures of the condo where we will be staying. A short (one block to the white sandy beach), a lovely pool and a nicely decorated condo. I don't know if I posted but I made a grave mistake while booking our flight. Instead of 9:35 a.m. departure, it was 9:35 p.m. from Cleveland. Ugh. I had to do a lot of fast chatting and begging to get the seats that I wanted on an earlier 5:26 p.m. flight. I usually select seats up front and pay for those.... It all turned out o.k., but we are taking a flight into Tampa a day earlier and staying in Tampa that night before we drive up to Anna Marie. Oh my, the challenges of not being as mindful as I could be sometimes!!! Booking on line can be stressful. Flying Frontier (no agent) to speak with personally! Grrr.
The downside of this trip or any traveling we do, is to board dear Finn. I know he is in a secure environment at Paws on the Lake but I worry a lot because of his age and just feeling abandoned. The last time we boarded, he would not eat until I suggested mixing a few tablespoons of peanut butter in the food. That worked.
Errands now to run. I hope everyone is well. Valentine's Day soon.
Can anyone help with this dilemma that I am having with automatic sign on to the smoking forum. I need to switch over to Chrome (in order to save my password). I need to know the COMPLETE sign in before I save my password….
What will take me directly to OUR pages?
Hope this makes sense. It is extremely frustrating for me to have to sign on each time……. Chrome apparently will save my passcode. For whatever reason, google will not…..
