Dear Kitty ~

Hoping that today is a good day for you.  We are leaving in a week for Florida.  We have reservations in AnnaMarie for a change.  It will be nice to explore a new area.  Still flying into Tampa.  Frontier has changed our flights two times from a.m. to p.m.  Grrr.

Thinking of you ~

Hi Ernie ~

Just a short note here on this Friday afternoon.  Sunny, but cold.

Yes, the car is a two seater and a stick shift.  I went for a brief ride this past week but it will most likely be far more fun with the top down.  It’s a stick shift so he will not have to worry about me even remotely wanting to drive it!

Several emails back and forth to Frontier Airlines have occupied the last two days.  We were scheduled for a departure a.m. and then the airlines changed it to a 9:30 p.m. deparure and then a 10:15 p.m. departure.  To add insult to injury, they have charged a $98.00 change fee because that is far too late for us to get into Tampa and get the car and drive up to our place.  Ugh.  I so dislike these issues!  We are at THEIR mercy.

Have a nice week-end.  I guess I will be dog sitting my granddaughter’s six month old golden doodle.  Not sure how Finn is going to feel about the whole idea of a rowdy puppy.  We shall see.  Pictures to follow.

Hi Paul,

I hope it is nice weather for you on Sunday and you enjoy the race.  Just think how much better your lungs must feel now that you have quit the ciggies.   I admire you for running……something I most likely could not do now.  

Finn is resting up as I am watching my granddaughter’s puppy this week-end while they travel to Atlanta.  We will see how that works out!

Enjoy the rest of Friday.  When I worked, I always loved when that last bell would ring at 3:00 p.m.  School was out and I had the week-end to regroup!

Good morning Susan, Paul, and Kitty.  Little cooler here this fine morn at 22.  Much less

wind than yesterday morn. 

Susan, surprised you rode in the roadster.  Wife rode in the SS once but won't again.  She

rode in it before the new engine, new steering gear box and many other things.  Much smoother

than it was.  Only standards I drive are my bikes and riding mower.  Mower is a 96, A craftsman

just before they cheapened down.  My 67 Pontiac Le mans was a standard but it's gone.  Had a

455 cubic inch engine, tons of torque but heavy. 

I haven't flown since 2012, for work.  Most likely use all our vehicles for a vacation when we go

these days, no hurry, we're both retired and want to see the scenery.  Sounds like a lot of trouble

with the airlines, seems like they have gone the way of the gas stations.  Hope Finn is doing ok with

the little lap dog.  My brother had to put his little Doxin to sleep at almost 17 years old, this past week.

I'm cleaning up that ham radio to sell it still, I don't work lots of hours on it.  I'm starting to cover all the

components in my station when not in use.  Dust collects over the years and hard to clean off.  Not good

for the interior of the components either.  At least I don't have a herd of cats in the house like my brother.

Cat urine, hair and vomit all over his stuff.  He's had electronics damaged beyond repair by the cats not

being taken care of and just too many of them. 

Today is sunny and in the 40s, same as tomorrow, can't believe it.  We escaped Winter.  smile  Think it's

Thursday that's a little rainy but up near 60. 

Paul, seems like if we get the brunt of climate change, your area will be on the front lines.  Can always move

but we know how that goes.  People don't want to leave their homes and their home town, careers.  We are

only 175 miles away from the ocean here.  Guess your race is today, good luck in it.  I can't come close to that.

I'de be lucky to get in a 15 minute mile on my best day. 

Have a great day all, great weather all over the northeast.

Ernie, I certainly won't set any records out there. I think my last run was 13+ minutes mph. 37 now better to me a little cold than warm when running. 

I guess I'll watch the SB but once the Giants are gone, I don't really care. Have a great day everyone.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday ~
We are adjusting to the granddog, Willow, being a weekend guest.

Enjoy the game.  Salmon for dinner tonight!

Willow has an intense gaze.

I have a SB box so that adds some interest. 

Weather was good for the run. 47 minutes for 4 miles. The important thing is I didn't need one of the ambulances that they had lined up at the finish line. :)

Admire  you so for your entry into a race. It’s wonderful that you found the Forum and that you can participate in such a venue.  Congratulations.  

Watching the Super Bowl…… could it ever be the Cleveland Browns or your loved New York team ??


From: JavaNY


You gotta believe Susan. The last Browns championship was pre-Superbowl. Had a bunch in the 50s if I recall correctly. Giants have had a bad decade since 2011.

A great game, nonetheless. Though I wasn't impressed with the Fox coverage, show, or commercials.
