Good morning all.  52 here this morn, warm walk.  I feel bad for all the people getting flooded mid Atlantic.

I'm afraid I'm just starting to notice it.  We dodged the bullet up here,  No rain at all.  Always some part of the

country going through hard times. 

The ships must be something Paul.  I went out on a Navy ship training once,  We landed on Virginia Beach.  I've

probably said that before.  Was in December, couldn't believe we were doing that in December.  Was glad to see

our First Sergeant go in over his head.  He was a pain in the butt.  After working in industrial electronic companies

he doesn't seem so bad. 

Pool flowers are great.  Wife takes a blank wall and turns it into a work of art.  It's already quite a transformation

just getting the Winter cover off and opening the pool.  Neighbor has given up on his, leaves the cover on year round.

He's not a nice person so don't know why he does it. 

Lost my mom to Cancer in 1987 Susan.  Miss her all the time, devoted her life to helping us kids and others.  Now my

wife's parents are getting old, starting to forget stuff.  They still plan on driving over 100 miles to reunion this year,

won't accept a ride.  Don't blame them for wanting to hold on to their lives and freedoms.  They've been through a

lot like most people.  I envy my wife being able to text her mom all the time, was very costly to keep in touch with

my parents with long distance charges.  Wrote letters sometimes. 

I spent most of the day yesterday repairing a pool chair, had no idea it would take so long, was hot working in the sun.

Took lots of coffee breaks. 

No plans yet for today, lots to do.  Can't believe I'm using the backhoe to dig a grave for ashes for sister in law.  A first

for me.  I didn't know until yesterday they were having an actual funeral. 

Hope all are enjoying the weekend.  Hope Kitty is getting along well.


Enjoy the day all

Good morning all.  Plenty of good weather for all, except maybe agriculture.  Frost for some crops, like

strawberries, and now no rain for the rest.  Pool temperature slowly coming up, 69 last I looked.  I usually

won't go in until above 74.  Might go in lower in the Fall when working hard.

Going to the farm today to get the area ready for sister in law funeral.  Traffic was bad yesterday when I went

to daughters, hope better today. 

Hope you all have a good day.

Condolences to your family.  

A lovely day here. Very warm. We went to our pool yesterday and also turned on the air conditioning.

Peace to your sister-in-law and your family, Ernie.

May has really been great weather here.  Hopefully it continues some in June.

Good morning Susan and Paul, and all.  53 here this morn.  Things went ok on the farm, better than I thought

they would.  Some relatives on my sister in law's side did the mowing and dug the grave before I got there.  They

wanted the credit, I guess.  Fine with me, I have plenty to do.  Supposed to drop out of the high 80s down to 76

Saturday when they're having the funeral, glad of that.

Left the air on low when I left yesterday morning so was ok when got back.  We've been using air for a while now. 

I wake up a lot after a day of drinking caffeine but got back to sleep each time, this time.  I guess you are still in Mass

Susan, don't know. 

Glad you're doing well, hope Kitty's treatment plan isn't to bad and works well.

Good morning all.  59 here this morn, warmest morning yet.  Supposed to cool down after today.

Must be really hot in the city, probably waiting for the cool down.

Drained the transmission gear oil and replaced it in the bike yesterday.  Long overdue. 

Hope everyone has a great day.

From: Susan1206


Hi Kitty,

So sorry to read of your COVID diagnosis.  Just when we thought this was all over……..    Glad you are feeling fine despite this.

Any word on your tests?

Hi Paul,

Seventeen days without rain here in Avon Lake.  Wondering what my water bill will be??   I am watering my annuals and perennials daily……

Will be leaving tomorrow for Bexley, a suburb of Columbus, to attend Jim’s granddaughter’s graduation party.  First time using an agency to come into my home and stay with Finn.  I did interview her prior…..hopefully, this will work out.

Enjoy the week-end.  Susan

Hi Ernie,

Will be leaving tomorrow to attend Jim’s granddaughter’s graduation party.  It’s about a 2-1/2 hour trip from here.  Hope Finn is okay with a dog sitting service I have hired.  Hindsight……I should have just boarded him for a day.  Cleaning now…….for this girl to come stay.  LOL

Enjoy the week-end.  No rain for seventeen days.  The local weather gal said this is more typical in the Fall…and not early summer.  Wondering what my water bill will look like!
