Good morning Kitty.  Glad you got to have dinner at daughters.  Saw my daughter yesterday

and the day before.  We have the grandboys for a couple days and then going up north to wife's

parents.  Daughter and boys going up for first time in about 5 years.  Picking up my Monte Carlo

SS and wife's brother will get started on wife's car.  We have 4 cameras with motion lights on each

one aimed at driveway so hope person will leave the vehicles alone.

So probably won't post on here for a day or two.  Usually wife's parents talk her into staying a second

night.  I have a terrible time trying to do much, like posting, on my phone, I know many millions use

there phone for everything.

Got the lawn mowed yesterday and took care of garbage.  My grandson built an electronic kit that

doesn't work so I will troubleshoot it after we get back.  I've built those 3 steel racks in the basement

and filled one up.  Did I tell you 2 of them slipped out of the back of my Subaru at a traffic light on

an uphill grade, when I started out.  I managed to get them back in, though very heavy.  Then pulled

off and finally strapped them in.  They are very awkward to try to strap in.  Was a very busy street.  smile

Have a good day Kitty.

Hi Diana,

Hoping that you managed to be totally away from the ciggies after the memorial tribute with your family.  Your sister sounds "interesting".  I'm being polite.  Not sure how I would have handled the carrying on at the VFW post!!!!  

Well, I hope it was a lovely service and that it offered you closure.  It is very difficult when both of your parents are gone.  I am an only child ~ lost Mom when I was 26 and Daddy much later.   Still hard sometimes to realize that you are on your own.......

Doing the summer/fall wardrobe switch and I despise it.  I need to throw away at least 80 percent of all of the old clothes and just buy a few basic things.  My closet needs the cute Asian girl who is great at organizing.  Her name escapes me....but she says if it doesn't bring you "sparkle"....get rid of it.  LOL

Enough for now.  Bills to pay and closets to tend to... ((hugs))  Susan

Hi Miss Kitty ~

Hmmm.  An Autumn glow.....  Are you ready for it?  Actually, I love Fall and the cooler temperatures.  Right now it is HOT and HUMID.  I'm in the midst of my closet clothes transition.  It takes weeks.  Need to just throw it out!  Stick with a few basics and life would be simpler....

We are off to Kent State on Friday to see my granddaughter...her dorm room....dinner and a theatre group...Asleep at the Wheel.  Jim's favorite...

Enjoy the week ((hugs))  Susan

Hi Ernie,

I laughed at your comment...Wife doesn't want to get older!   yikes...that is so true of all of us.

I agree with your medication summary ~ I'm not such a big fan of it but it seems that the Cleveland Clinic continues to dole it out and deem it necessary.   I have an inhaler now....low respiration rate with the knee surgery.......take blood pressure and allergy medication.  Still, it seems like a lot!

Keep the Faith as we all do.  Finn having a lot of trouble switching to the new food.  He plain darn doesn't like it.....have an appt. for a canine vaccination this week ~ will ask the Vet.

Friend losing her Black Lab tomorrow.  Cancer in the spleen.  We are gathering tomorrow morning to watch the sunrise over Lake Erie.  Very sad as you well know.  ((hugs))  Susan

Good morning Susan.  Wife doesn't like celebrating birthdays.  smileBut they come and go anyway.

I've eliminated all of my diabetes meds but I have to exercise and diet everyday, can't push it into

remission like many can that are willing to work at it.  Guess mine comes from my parents and

further back.  I take blood pressure med and a statin but extremely lower dose than the doc prescribes.

Just enough so my blood tests are in a safe range.

Brandy was only 8 1/2, I miss her every day.  I got a 16 x 20 picture of her having fun.  It's the picture

she would want to be remembered by.  We only got rabies vaccinations for the pups.  We first noticed

Brandy's tumor in April, she was gone July 12th, with the help of pain management infusions.  Sad Finn

is losing her friend. 

I have a small closet and all my clothes for the year are there and in a couple drawers.  The only pair of

jeans I have hanging up are bell bottoms a friend of ours gave us before she died back in the 80s.  They

have 32 inch waist.  I could wear them barely when I was at 143 lbs but now at 154, doubt I could wear

them.  I used to wear them about once a year when younger.  Same as a thin leather motorcyce jacket

my dad gave me before he was gone, usually wear for a ride once a year.  Jacket was in pretty bad shape

when he and my sister gave it to me but I used leather conditioner on it and seems ok.

Have a good day.


Picture I had enlarged.
