We have returned from our short trip to Hilton Head.  Wonderful 70 degree temps and sunshine. The drive through the West Virginia Turnpike was beautiful.  The time share pitch was brief and painless.  Each night included delicious meals; all seafood for both of us.  Sea Pines, Coligny area, Palmetto Dunes have exploded with new residences.  
 

Returned home to 30 Degree temperatures and rain/sleet.  Our beloved Cleveland Guardians fell to New York last night.  
 

Carry on….being smoke free every step of the way!

Glad you enjoyed it, Susan. Looks beautiful.

Not a good game tonight for Yanks.

Good morning all.  A little warmer here this morn at 38.  Supposed to get 4-5 good days coming up.

Sunny in the 60s and 70s.  It's good because I haven't adapted to 40s in the daytime. 

Glad you had a good vacation Susan.  Looks nice there.  Also, the time share spew wasn't bad.  I rode

my bike on the old dirt roads I used to ride when I was 14-15 but the leaves didn't really fly up around me.

There are homes on the roads now so leaves aren't piled up on the dirt roads.  When I was a kid there were

only a couple hunting cabins there.

I got natural calming treats for the pups but if they work it's just a little.  Called Composure. 

We got a couple freezes here too.  The plants outside the pool fence died but the ones in the pool area still

going, just don't look as vibrant. 

Probably staying warmer in NYC, no freeze nights yet.

Learned the cinnamon sticks I've been chewing on are the wrong kind, cassia cinnamon, instead of Ceylon cinnamon.

Cassia thins blood and doesn't help lower glucose.  Unfortunately, Cassia is what I've been using since childhood and

tastes much better.  Still, got a pound of Ceylon.  Have learned that fish oil capsules and aloe vera capsules also help

lower glucose, so made a note of this for when my body works around turmeric root and cinnamon.  As it eventually

seems to do with everything I do.  A life long war from now on.

Glad everyone is doing well.  My wife's check up on her eye surgery went well, so happy for her.

Hay hooks we used to pull bales up on the wagon from the hay baler decades ago.

I’m happy your wife’s surgery and check up went well.  Does she speak that everything is so much brighter?  I believe they did the worst eye first and I remember walking outside and seeing the bright colors and thanking God for the beauty. The eye drops that follow are a bit tedious but well worth it to see better.  Did you say that it was or wasn’t covered by insurance?

I saw the Dr. Upon my return for on going sinus infection issue and also some wheezing. Between the antibiotic and prednisone pack it was quite a bit of change. Seniors need a better break with a health care! 
 

On we go, warmer this week. Thanks for the picture of the hooks. I’m sure they are still used by rural farmers!

jim likes to take us on rides in his mustang convertible. This Is at a place called Gore Orphanage Road -  on a remote one way road. I can’t imagine what happened there with the kids so many years ago…..

The bridge to Sanibel has been repaired and I saw a news clip of the hundreds upon hundreds of trucks going onto the island. 
 

I continue to think of your home there and wonder if the damage!  Molly, my eldest and Chris, just bought a home in Santa Rosa Beach by Destin. Near the Panhandle and five minutes to the Gulf. Purely for vacation rental now but when they retire, they will live there!
 

Cold here now… trees are at peak.

I did a little research and found that the Yankees played the Houston Astro’s.  Good luck with the rest of the games!

The last game between the Guardians and the Yankees was very bittersweet.  We seem to always be the underdogs and there were high hopes for this young scrappy team.  But,the Yankees were clearly the better team the last game…. Hopefully, we will regroup and continue on next season.  No matter what team, win or lose, the Cleveland fan base is very loyal!  
 

On we go….. enjoying a smoke free life!  Susan

a vintage Cleveland Slider… our mascot!  Lol

Yes, the Yankees are playing the Cheating Astros. Another disappointing game tonight. Hopefully things go better in The Bronx.

Glad your wife's surgery went well, Ernie. 

Cool here but I enjoy it. 

Never heard of a hay hook. Live & learn.

Good morning Susan and Paul.  Woke early, hope to get back to sleep for a while.  Looks like 59 and

sunny for us here today so not bad.  Each day warmer until starts getting colder again. 

Insurance paying half so $6k plus the $700 deductible for us.  Cost extra to get laser surgery and vivid

lenses.  I might not get cataracts but seems most do eventually.  Her insurance before medicare wasn't

accepted and wouldn't have paid much if it was.  So we would've had to pay 12k or 13k.  She's seeing

better and better but blurry and she's using the eye drops.  We had had lazic done to one eye years ago

so one eye could see distant and one close up but only worked a number of years before the cataracts

started.  Now the enhanced lenses are close up and distant in both eyes.  She drove today.

Can't get current satellite images of Sanibel, just past ones. 

Composure treats not calming the pups or maybe very little.  They're cute though. 

Maybe get busy today, haven't been getting involved in much with wife's surgery and the cold temps. 

Looking at medicare advantage plans to keep mine or switch to another.  Paid for my jean jacket yesterday.

Haven't had one since the late 60s, when my dad always told me to take it off to eat.  That's the reason I

remember having one. 

Have a great day all.

What is a 'hay hook' and what is it used for? - QuoraUsing hay hook to pull bales up onto the wagon.

Hi Paul.

Hopefully, the Yankees will turn it around when they return home!

Guess I now turn to my OH IO football game tomorrow at noon.  I bleed scarlet and gray!

Nicer weather coming today and this weekend. I will huff and puff and blow it your way!
