Good morning Kitty.  Snowing here again until 10 am the forecast says.

This is when we get ice on the deck and steps usually, when it snows

every day and I don't get it all cleaned up or I'm busy working on something else.

Good you got to see your grandson and wife.  Our oldest grandson still staying

here.  We played the sequence board game for a few hours yesterday.  I didn't

do much work on anything yesterday.

Happy anniversary.  Hope you enjoyed the day.  Wife and I got married in June. 

I went to the skin doc again last week and got spots frozen off my head they call

precancerous again, with liquid nitrogen.  I seem to get them even if I always have

a hat on outdoors.  Doc is giving me some cream to use during the Winter to help

stop them from forming. 

Supposed to get light snow until around 10 am this morn so probably won't turn on

the heated mats until around then. 

Have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  More light snow here this morn.  Grandson will be going home today.

I have to go down to the farm tomorrow to take brother to a doctor appt.  My wife has a

doctor appt here tomorrow.  My sister still has bronchitis and she's still at her home in

Montoursville, PA.  Has been fun having grandson here and the 3 of us playing the board

game, sequence. 

Heated mats on the deck and steps are working great.  I need to get generator gas today,

a prescription pick up, take grandson home, take care of our garbage and daughter's.  Few

other things. 

The rear of the Subaru Baja is a little noisy and loose so ordered new struts on the black Friday

discount.  Looked back at my records and the rear ones I replaced 6 years ago were about half

the price of stock Subaru ones or Monroe so I guess I got my moneys worth.  Thought Gabriel to

be a good product but seems to be less quality and cheaper.  So will need to replace them out in

the cold.  At least have had some time to adapt to the new season. 

I remember you used to have shell projects out on the island.

Have a great day Kitty.  You must have some of your shell creations around the house.

Good morning, dear friends in the Sensational Senior group ~

Just wanted to drop in and say "hi" and hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving Day and week-end.

Actually, I celebrated 12 years, 6 days, of being nicotine free.  I remember it well.  The day before Thanksgiving and I didn't know how I was going to survive without a ciggie.....and being around the grandchildren.  I just put them down and thankfully, never picked up another one.

A smathering of snow on the ground.  Jim has been sick for two weeks with a cough and now I've come down with it.  Sad to say, we are supposed to do something overnight with my children for my birthday ~ not sure how that will work out.

Wishing you all a happy beginning of December.  ((hugs))  Susan

12 years is so wonderful be proud....I am every day...of course  I still don't believe I did this wonderful thing....we did have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I am so grateful for all of our children....and proud that they like each other....hugs to all


From: Susan1206


Thank you, dear Kitty.  YOU were instrumental in keeping me on track and I thank you every day for that.  My birthday plans for this week-end with the children (away for the week-end) has been foiled.  I have such a cough and congestion.  Waiting for an online virtual visit with the Cleveland Clinic.  Son-in-law found out this afternoon that he has COVID.   So, on we go...... one foot in front of the other!   Jim had this for two weeks....non stop coughing....and I'm decently sure he gave it to me!  

Hugs across the miles.   Susan

Good morning Kitty.  Went south and worked on the farm yesterday.  Cleaned up all the kitty liter

boxes and took about 20 buckets left over from my sisters work over to the tree line and dumped it.

Burned the trash like they do down there and picked up all the cat food cans and bagged them. 

Went down to brothers old home and got a ham radio antenna down off the tower and installed

it up at the farm house for him.  His old radio got cat urine in it and doesn't work very well so he's

thinking about getting a new one.  He helped me many times with antennas, vehicles and stuff so I'm

happy to be able to help him with stuff sometimes.  It's a pain when he doesn't do things that we all

know he could for himself and his surroundings. 

Susan is right you helped many stay quit of smoking.  Tried to my self.  Think we all paid it forward best

we could.  I remember all the people you had on this blog.  I'm about to come up on 15 years when I didn't

know how I was going to make it the next 15 hours.  We had the Chantix blog also.  John, Barb, Queenie,

and hundreds of others.

Have a good day Kitty.
