Good morning Susan and Kitty.  Supposed to get more humid here today.

I go to a diner with my brother when I go to PA and help on the farm but

it's about once a week so have to be very careful about what I eat.  It's so

often it will have an effect on my glucose.  Garden salad last time.  Supprised

my brother is able to get around with a broken rib along with his messed up

legs from diabetes.   After only one week.

Going to get new tires and one wheel mounted on the Monte Carlo SS today.

I didn't do well with the little spot weld gun to pull dents so will get an estimate

from the shop I'm going to today and one from my brother in law in a week or so.

Have four dents in the roof, two on the front fenders, and couple mars besides


Hope Finn's sore goes away.  Brandy keeps getting worse, so hate to play god and

decide when a kind gentle soul is to leave this earth but it's coming.

I have no doubt I would live through the virus easily but I go help sick people that are

much weaker.  I haven't been to church in over a year.  I read their emails and many of

them have gotten sick.  I don't go out to public places much except stores and have done

that all along. 

Have a good day.

it is 88 degrees here right now and the humidity is 60  the sun is shining and Brian went out really early to work in gardens and was back in by 9...already too hot...really anxious to plant my cutting flowers...love flowers on the table all summer...and all winter I buy them at the store once in awhile....and now it is almost time for lunch and that seems about the only schedule that I have these days.....hope everyone has a wonderful day

Good morning Kitty.  I was outside most of the afternoon getting my SS done,

not working though.  Got an estimate on the damage caused by the tent frame

collapse in December blizzard.  $1274.  There's other stuff needs done but doesn't

include that.

Granddaughter stopped by and went swimming with her boyfriend. 

Brandy much weaker than she was.  Doesn't want to go up the hill for walk in

the woods in the evening. 

Having flowers on the table often sounds nice.  Enjoy the day.

Hi Susan,Kitty and Ernie

iI haven't been here in a long time. It sounds like everybody is hot and humid. 

The College World Series is going on here.  Hubby and I don't go anymore.  Very crowded and hard to park.  No new grandkids.  I think Ray is going to be one and only.  He is six in August and will be going to kindergarten.  How are all the kids, grandkids and great grandkids doing.  Just read Kitty has a new great grandkid.  Am I right?  Our Bella is still alive and kicking at 14, even though she can't really see or hear anymore.  She sleeps and rests most of the time.  Doesn't go for walks anymore.  It was great catching up on the posts even though too many to read.  Take care everyone

Good morning Kitty.  Last day before the temperature drops.  We had some storms.

My Dr acted upset and told me I have to take more statins.  Not going to do that.

Everyone knows they are a bad med.  He knows I'm trying to get off dangerous meds.

My other doctors moved on to better jobs.  Maybe he's upset at my exercise and diet getting

me close to the day I can do without them.  I could use a counselor to help me get healthy

but he is all I could find.  I just have to keep trying and get my blood test reports. 

Glad you are getting better.

Used the push mower to do trim for couple hours yesterday morning, then I mowed part of

daughters lawn on rider and did the rest of mine on the rider.  Now the world is soaked from

the storms. 

Still thinking Thursday to go help on the farm.  Heard my brother on ham radio last night. 

Operator told him he should let the chickens go when he said he fell in the chicken coop again

but didn't get hurt this time.   We have a high chance of rain every day so might take the SS this

time instead of the bike. 

Have a good day Kitty, Thursday will be cooler and you will be able to get out.


SS in front of dad's old barn.

Good morning Carolyn.  I just have 3 grands.  Kitty has many grands and great grands.  My oldest

is a granddaughter at 17.  She plans college and not having a family right away. 

Our pup is almost 9 but has a cancer tumor in her leg and we know it is spreading to the rest of

her body.  We don't have that much time left with her. 

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Rainy this morn but still 69 at 4 AM.

Today is a farmer day anyway, we have rain in the forecast for a long time.

Didn't get much done yesterday, getting prescriptions and meds for Brandy.

Caught 2 chipmunks and relocated them but still at least 2 more out here.

Making nests in an old drainage ditch built in 89.  If my bird feeder is low on

seeds they get inside and have a hard time getting out.

Have a great day.
