Good morning Susan. Wedding was long ago, lucky I still remember that day. 1969 was Woodstock year.
I lived only couple hundred miles away but didn't know it happened until 1970 when I heard the 8 track
tape. I remember hearing it in the back seat of a Chevelle Malibu. Marriage was and still is the best decision
I made in my life.
I think probably much fewer people stopped smoking in this virus thing but just my thoughts. There were
many things to help me stop smoking but the forum was a big part of it. I'm grateful my granddaughter
talked me into this last attempt, that worked. She was about 3 1/2 years old then. Now she's 18. Bought
my Subaru Baja then which I've had for 15 years. Almost lost it in the Fall. Had to put in a new rear subframe
and have two frame rails welded into the uni-body. I looked at getting another vehicle and the cost is way to
high right now. Used smaller pick-up was 38k and the larger one used was 50k.
...Cocoa was born and came into our lives then also, sadly she left us in May, 2019. I will always remember
her and love her. She was a very smart dog and helped lots in opening my eyes to what special beings dogs are.
When she was a little puppy I tried to walk up the hallway around her, she ran in front of me and sat there facing
me. Will never forget that moment.
Enjoy your days Susan.

It’s always wonderful we have these photos and memories of our loved pets. Do you believe that we will see them on the other side? I pray we do! Phoebe’s ashes are going with me… probably Finn’s too. My collie was buried on our property in North Canton.
Sadly watching this horrible destruction to the people and country of Ukraine.
Even though I am not here daily, I will miss the Forum. Susan
Sweet Bronwen, the love of my life….
Let’s all gather on FACEBOOK. The Forum has added years to my life. I feel sad that it will no longer be here!! Susan
wonderful memories and picture....a beautiful sunny day temp up to 54...then supposed to cloud up and rain/snow later tonight....all is well here....and yes Susan lets stay in touch...shouldn't be hard.....
Good morning Susan and Kitty. We are in that snow storm that came across the country then joined up with another.
Hope this is our last. In the 40s and 50s every day after Sunday. So it will melt if I decide not to clean it up.
We don't need to get out until Monday groceries. Looks like snow until noon. I probably won't go down to
help the people on the farm until around the 17th. My sister and I both get tired of them not helping themselves
when it's obvious they could do much more. My sister says she is only staying there a couple days a week this year.
Last year she lived there until she got sick, then left for Florida.
I think if I have some place in a better place I would give it up to the more deserving canine beings I've known in this
life. They were much better than me and much more deserving. Our puppies are buried in the back yard with IDs
and solar lights. I still love each one of them, they helped me to get through this life. I hope I did enough to make
theirs happier and more comfortable.
I guess I'm not surprised at the Russian guy. I saw a lifetime of people that forgot they were human when they got to
work, scheming against the person working in the same company and country, forgetting that they were hurting a whole
family. Wasn't the exception, was the normal. Maybe wife and I were in the wrong industries. I won't even talk about
the politics of the past 10 years.
I didn't do much yesterday. Waiting on the coax relay that can switch 1000 watts for the amplifier I'm working on. It's
purpose in business it was used for didn't need one so was built without one. I'm lucky I have friends that have sent me
diagrams of some of the wiring and descriptions. I should be able to figure it out.
Wife and I went out and got a couple things before the storm. Mostly stuff to make salad. We both usually have salad for
lunch, me because I have to be careful not to eat more than I burn off. Have the war on diabetes for the duration. I didn't
look into diabetes remission deep enough. Most of us have to exercise and diet for the rest of our lives to stay in remission.
I went from around 182 lbs down o 143 lbs and seem to be holding steady at around 150. So usually keep my glucose around
100 without any diabetes meds. I was on 3 different meds and headed for having to have insulin shots every day. I have to
try very hard to exercise fast enough and hard enough to keep the numbers down. When I'm walking dogs again I will have to
also put in some time on the elliptical and weights. I can't walk fast enough to get the numbers down low enough. I love the two
new puppies we got, they are great. I will get a picture transferred over to the PC soon.
I had limited myself to one day a month on facebook because of the politics on there but will go back to logging in routinely. I just
have to be able to ignore them. I have a hard time with things that split the country and families like the virus, politics, and religion.
My grandkids are growing up so fast and looks like the last of them. Remember when my Kaitlyn was here so much of the time. She's
18 now and only here once in a while. When they are small it seems like it will last forever but time passes quickly.
Enjoy the day Susan and Kitty. I didn't see if you're getting this storm over there to the west. I know Kitty will get it after it leaves here, hot sure
if all rain over there in Ct.
Cocoa's dad, Buddy. Two days before he died with Kidney disease. When I approached my daughter's house Cocoa's mom, Princess would jump around and bark. Buddy would let out a huge howl.
Hi Ernie and Miss Kitty ~
We received about an inch of snow yesterday. The cold has returned but I believe it will be short lived. Spring is definitely around the corner..there is hope!
Dear husband has found a place for a week next February at AnnaMarie Island. Siesta Key, where we were, has become extremely crowded. Traffic is a nightmare. Even bike riding is perilous. A young man came up on my left and I turned the bike to the right and hit the stone curb. Didn’t go completely down but very close! So, we will explore a less traveled place. Perhaps Kitty is familiar with the town.
I will pray our loved pets will be with us in some way! They bring us so much joy!
We are attending a St Patrick’s Day party tonight.
Not a drop of Irish in my DNA ~ 99.9% German!
Enjoy the weekend. Susan
Isn’t there a way that on Messenger FB that we can develop our own Chat room? I’ll explore this. Susan
it is snowing really hard here and blowing sideways....strong winds is with our storm....can't see the hillside snow too heavy..going to put out a new jigsaw puzzle for Brian to start....I turn the pieces over and he does the puzzle....stuck in the house again....that is okay......
You can set up your own private Facebook group on Facebook. Only members of the group can see any of the posts and compose there. Are used to be a member of it similar group who used to be on the forum and started their own Facebook group.caz
Good morning Kitty, Susan, and Cazza. We have 10 or 12 inches of snow, after the front finished we got lake effect snow all day.
It's snowing again this morning and we got the strong north wind drifting also. Don't think the new puppies like it when
we take them out. We have 40s and 50s all week after today. Not sure if I will clear the driveway, probably some. I did
shovel the decks and a path around the pool for the puppies.
I didn't do much yesterday, waiting for it to be warm in the basement again where I do most of my work, got spoiled when
it was around 60 down there. Mostly I'm waiting for a relay so I know the lengths of coax cable I need to order after I mount
it to the back panel. I watched a movie on TV and I usually watch a netflix series or hotrod channel while I exercise on the
We were going to spend some time south after this year but now we will probably build up the horse farm in PA with our
daughter to leave it for them and the grandchildren. Lot of work and money but will be rewarding and fun. I don't know when
we'll get started on it though. Will take years to rebuild the farm house, build daughter's new home, build the horse barn, and
the fences. I might not last to see it completed but will do all I can. It does sound beautiful to find a remote place in good weather
during the Winter. We were going to get a large pick up and camper to stay from after Christmas until our daughter's birthdays
Our grands usually ride in the St. Patrick's Day parade with their father but didn't this year. I usually go alone because nobody
else wants to stand out in the cold. A great deal of the spectators are college kids drinking and partying, lot of girls dressed in
revealing clothes even in the cold, but I hardly notice. Like the pipe bands.
Sounds like we can form a room on facebook. Seems like they had those on AOL back in the 80s when AOL was the only interface
to the internet. Long before facebook.
I did go down to the basement to talk to my brother on ham radio late in the eve but two other guys started talking on the frequency
we use so I skipped it.
Everyone have a great day, Spring is at our doorstep.
