Good morning Kitty.  They are a small tree or large bush / shrub.

Lylac.  Daughter is big on organic stuff, I try a little that she does.

I closed off the underwater lights in the pool to stop the leaks.  If they had put

the electric lines through conduit I could have replaced them.  I had to get the

6 screws aligned through six layers into the wall and could only see the first three

layers.  I was very stressed out afterwards.  We had the pool installed in 1989 and

we didn't know.  We were mostly concerned about water drainage around the pool

so it didn't get to the pool or our basement. 

Was taking my Monte Carlo SS to the farmers market Saturday morning and the

exhaust came apart from the header pipe.  I got it back together with thread lock

in the afternoon.

Have a good day, we're in the cool down days here.

but what is the tree and what is she making?

Good morning Kitty.  Cool down now.  Probably going down into

PA to the farm today.  She is using blossoms off the Lylacs to make

syrup and something else I forget.  She came over last night to get

some more.  She has to sit for hours and take the blossoms off.

Still hope to rebuild the farm house and build up the horse farm for

my kids and grands, will be the last big project of my life, I think.

The board game we play is Sequence.  My father in law makes a

large version of the board that doesn't fold up.  He first made them

in the 90s but we lost ours so he recently made a new one for us.

Our basement flooded sometimes so that's probably what happened

to it.  We lost a large family picture on canvas down there I remember.

Wife said one of our daughters stored it down there.

Brandy goes back to the bedroom often now and lays on a bed I made

for her on the floor.  She probably knows she is going.  We don't know if

it's pain or she just wants to be alone.  I try to get her to not jump up on

the bed because the tumor goes halfway through the bone and the leg

bone could snap.

Enjoy the day.

Good morning Kitty.  Glad you had a peaceful eve.  I did ok on the farm.

Mowed the lawn, took care of all the kitty liter bins, and unclogged the vaccuum

cleaner.  It's nice to see the places where I grew up.  I tend to hotrod my car

and bike more there, need to get over that.

Brandy is doing well.  They were going to have her come in Wednesday for the

second intravenous pain killer but she is doing well.  Was supposed to be 2-3

weeks and making it 1.5 weeks because the Dr is going to be out Memorial Day

week.  Will see what they say.  Think we need to go to 3 weeks or June 7.

Gotta go get my Subaru inspected this morning after our walk.  Rebuilt the right

rear brake that was failing so it should breeze through.  It's the half car, half truck,

I bought when we stopped smoking back in 07.  It's getting old.

Have a good day.

wow I never responded yesterday....sorry.....we are supposed to get up to the 90's today....sunny partly....at the moment but expecting a big storm later...may not be too bad for us in the northern part.....and it is really 14 yrs. for me not until July  .....hard to believe....another Pt visit this morning.....the pain might be a little less then it has been....wouldn't it be nice to be pain free?  have a good day

Good morning Kitty.  Got 14 year old car inspected.  Got my daughter's computer

speakers fixed. 

Daughter makes syrup  and honey from lylac blossoms.

Brandy still doing well on pain killers and anti-inflamitory meds but the tumor is

getting bigger.  We go for 3 to 4 mile walks and take breaks.

Sorry your back hurts.  Hope the therapy improves it.  I have some pain in my

left arm but not bad.  Probably shoulder again. 

We had the warm weather and storms also, not that far apart.  You're 200 or 300

miles to the northeast of us, I think.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning Kitty.  Chilly morning here and there.  Took Brandy for a walk

through the woods last eve.  She loves to walk off leash.  I hate losing another

close friend.

I finally got my walk up to a good distance yesterday.  Have been only going

3-4 miles with Brandy, then working projects.  I have to get lots of exercise in, then

work on a project.  The rest will wait.  Every time my Glucose goes up it kills cells

I need in order to keep the numbers down.

My dad had a bunch of watches hung up at the farm house.  I noticed them when I

visited but don't know if I ever asked him about them.  My brother said something about

them last time so I grabbed one and opened it to get the battery.  Put a new battery in

yesterday and it works.  I will wear it for a while even though I carry a phone like most.

My dad never carried a phone.  He was an industrial electrician, don't understand why

he wasn't changing the batteries.

Have a good day Kitty.
