Good morning Kitty.  Cold front moved in as predicted, 20 here.  Roads were clear for

my drive home.  Talked to one of my cousins for over an hour.  Cousin that visited our

farm Summers when I was 10 or 12 years old.  Only person there I had known becides

John, deceased.  

Went and cleaned at the farm after.  Was surprised that my brother helped a little.  He's

shown that he can pick up after himself but usually doesn't.  We set up his new ham radio

some.  I carried his old radio off the the backroom for storage, one that the cat pee ruined.

Didn't have time for any projects this time.  I showed him where there was a slide show of

our deceased cousin's life on the internet.  I did get the tractor out and take buckets of kitty

liter over to the tree line. 

We haven't taken down our decorations yet, probably today.  I was around people yesterday

but only shook hands with the one cousin. 

Glad your illness is subsiding and only a med treatment.  We've all spent many hours in the ER,

not fun. 

You all have a good day.

Good morning Kitty.  Hope your doctor appt went well.  My wife has cataract doctor appt

today, unfortunately a year before she has medicare so thousands instead of hundreds.

I'm up at 4 again.  Supposed to be a little warmer here today, into the 40s I think.

Got daughters and our garbage taken care of.  Then rode into PA to get the wheel alignment

done on the Subaru Baja.  Was about $135 here and $80 40 miles south.  Trust the PA place

more and enjoyed the ride.  Was glad they didn't come out saying the alignment couldn't be

done with all the rework done on the truck.  Now Suby has a new lease on life.  If only I could

have saved our Brandy.  I did put new lower control arms on the new sub frame with new bolts

that have cams to adjust the rear wheel alignment.  Both Brandy and Cocoa rode in the Suby many

times, Cocoa's parents rode in it some. 

A good time to be alive.  Hope you and Brian enjoy the day.

Good morning, dear Sensational Seniors ~
a day to celebrate my beloved Finn’s tenth birthday. We celebrated with a card and Red Barn stuffed large bone. Later, peanut butter Frosty Paws ice cream.

A cold and windy day here on Lake Erie.  Very little snow this winter. Climate change may be a definite reality.

Anyone remember these?  A definite childhood memory~  A gumdrop tree ordered from the Vermont Country store. Bronwen loved the gumdrops.

Good morning Susan.  Glad Finn has made it to 10, Happy Birthday to him.  Sounds

like he had a great celebration.  Doing well here.  My wife is having trouble trying to

get cataract surgery before medicare, $12k to $14k.  Maybe she can wait but they're

pretty bad.

 I might have a birthday celebration today, week or so late in the wrong year now but

we have to wait until people can make it through their schedules. 

Looks like you had a great Christmas, us also.  Mostly seeing the kids having fun.

Don't be a stranger.  Enjoy the day.

Good morning Kitty.  Susan is right, not much snow yet this season but 48 inches, inside 24 hours,

last December that caused damage all over.  I haven't missed the snow removal.  We have plenty

to do without it. 

I need to go pick up prescriptions today and need to do an inventory down in the basement to see

what I need to install an electrical outlet in the bathroom.  We only have one and need another on

the opposite wall.  Right now we have a small extension cord running around the corner from one

bedroom.  This is a good time of year for such a project.  I have many like that, just have to get to


I was late getting up this morning so will exercise soon and everything in the day will be shifted

later, glad I'm not leaving for work. 

Not riding my bike to PA farm anymore, taking the Baja.  Even with the Baja and it's all wheel

Subaru drive, I still get concerned about snow and ice.  Glad the Baja got a new lease on life,

so much has faded into the past.  Brandy, Cocoa, Cocoa's parents Princess and Buddy all rode

in the Baja.  Got the Baja 15 years ago when we all stopped smoking. 

Have a good day.


Granddaughter and I about 15 years ago, she's 18 now.
