Good Morning Kitty.  Went to one of my daughter's yesterday.  Took care of her garbage and

shoveled the drive with her sons.  I set up the indoor outdoor thermometer and whatever you

call humidity measurement.  We got it for her for Christmas.

Early in the morning I cleared the drive here and took wife's car in for inspection and last free

maintenance.  I ended up spending $40 on a cabin filter, will replace it myself from now on.

Have a nice day.

Good morning Susan.  Brandy has had a bad stomach 3 out of the last 7 days.  Not sure

what is going on.  Could be her food.  Don't know what I would switch to.  Was some trouble finding

this kind after Foster & Smith was bought out.

I've been out doing things.  Wife is stuck up north for at least another 10 days so I might

go visit again.

Have a nice day.

Sorry to hear that you wife is delayed again.  At the mercy of Doctors and facilities.  Daughter received her second vaccination yesterday and is quite ill in bed.  Said she is experiencing total body aches...  Something for us to look forward to.

Carry on...as they say...

Sorry to hear about Brandy too.  Have you tried the drained hamburger and rice diet?

Dear Kitty ~

One day drones into the other and then another and another....

Looking forward to no snow and ice.  Very cold here.  Shoveled a bit of snow off the patio and no I should NOT be out on the icy patio.  Girls would have a fit if they knew!!

Carry on

Good morning Kitty.  I'm not getting enough exercise right now.  Brandy can't be on the

road or shoulders much right now.  To much salt and other chemicals they mix in.  I usually

shovel and put in 1.5 hours on the elliptical and other exercises.  I measure my Glucose and

I see that it's not enough calories burned. 

I will probably go pick up the prescriptions I ordered today.  The one got out of sequence some

how, so to soon to order this time.  Dr will have a fit if he sees it didn't get ordered.  It's Statins

for LDL Cholesterol.  He wants me to take 2 or 3 times what I have now.  I hesitate to take what

I have now, have heard how damaging Statins are.  Was reading just lately the medical community

recommends they be stopped at age 75 because they cause dizzy spells and memory loss.

Glad you and Brian are doing well.  I was trying to exercise more but not fun if it isn't out walking

with Brandy.

Have a good day.

Good morning Susan.  Hadn't tried any alternative food for Brandy yet. 

I added our lit up glittery pickup truck to the Valentine window decoration.

I kept the little push button sample light they have installed in the store from

the manufacturer.  I cut the pig tail wire off it and connected a cell phone

power pack to it.  So it can be plugged in to the programmed outlet.  That

way comes on at night and morning before daylight without me keeping AA

batteries in it and turning it on with the switch all the time.

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Sounds like a great pie.  We did have a spaghetti

dinner with the grands every week for years but everyone decided they

wanted to switch over to pizza.  Maybe so my wife could retire from the

task, I'm not sure.

We enjoyed the sun here also.  Only a few bits of the driveway melted.

Hope quite a bit more melts today. 

They changed to a different Glucose meter and test strips without telling me

so I have to call and make sure everything is in today and go back over there

again.  At least my Dr office is in the same building as my pharmacy so I could

go upstairs and have the receptionist order the new prescription and send it to

the Dr for approval.

Have a good day.

sounds pretty confusing to get all together for you diabetes control....used to be simpler  I think   but of course they have made great strides in medicine....so that part is good....no sunshine today  may get snow flurries again but hopefully no accumulation....high 20's at the moment...I don't really have an agenda again today....Brian is going down to the first floor to finish painting down there and install some storage shelves...looking good...take care of yourself....
