Happy Easter to all of your family....we have a traditional Easter brunch....because of their Polish heritage they always have kielbasa and the hard boiled eggs (with other stuff)  so yes we will be there one daughter does it every year since Mom quit....

Good morning Susan, Kitty, Paul, and all.  Have Good Friday off!  smile  Was 35 early this morn so did

get the dogs out for a walk.  We were 20 minutes late because I had to change our puppy food autoship

order over to adult dog autoship and stuff went wrong but finally got it right.  They're not as eager to eat

their food now but not sure that will change.

Our dinner here still the only Easter celebration for us.  Daughter's still not volunteering to take over.  smiley

Made some head way on my trouble shooting that's been going on, couple weeks maybe.  Lost track of

the time passed.   Still might have to order a part and wait.

Waiting for a friend of our granddaughters to deliver some girl scout cookies this morning.  It's fun to

make all the orders with a young lady but the delivery and all that goes with it can be trying, as many of

us know.

I will still be working on my electronic analysis and repair this morn.  Tomorrow might be headed south to

the farm again if brother is still in the hospital.  Has a blood clot in one leg and infections in the other leg.

Improving but most likely not ready to go home.  He's been in since last Friday.

Enjoy the day all.  Have 7 sunny days forecast here, with temp at 78 on the 7th day.

Have a happy Easter all.  Very nice weather for a time with this high sitting over the northeast.

Happy Day after Easter where I indulged in far too much food and drink, especially in lieu of an annual physical I have this afternoon!    We enjoyed the Mass at the German church (they still have a Latin Mass) at designated times and an ok brunch in the city.  I am convinced that each dining out experience involves lots of “loud” people.  Perhaps that is my age but it is somewhat difficult to be screaming at your family across the table.  The crowd did subside within an hour and the service was quite slow.  

A beautiful day here and a most beautiful week.  My dear friend’s husband will be brought back here for burial on Wednesday.

I am enjoying a beautiful bouquet the youngest daughter and family gave to us.  I love fresh flowers.

Enjoy the day everyone.  I hope the sun is shining in your part of the country.  Susan

Will be in the 70s here tomorrow and 80s on Thursday & Friday. 

Easter was good, though it flew by. Seemed like I was getting on NJ Transit and 36 hours later returning in a blink of an eye. 

Enjoy the evening.

Good morning all.  35 here so not to bad, have 50s forecast mornings for a few after this.  I see it's

cooling back down next week.  Might put an AC unit in the living room later today.  If it's 80 outside

it will try to reach 90 in the living room with the afternoon sun.

The flowers look great Susan.  We probably should've gotten some for our Easter dinner.  We did

have a great dinner.  Granddaughter set up an Easter Egg Hunt for her little brothers.  Was fun, we

still have one out there somewhere that wasn't found.  I ate to much but will work it off in this good

weather.  I have so much to get done with the property, vehicles, and the house.  It's to early to go

down to the farm but might ride the bike down there one of these warm days. 

I don't envy you the funeral Susan.  Like I said, they're coming up to often as we get older. 

Events always go by quickly Paul.  Find myself realizing that when waiting for something with anticipation.

I know it will be over so quickly.

Father in law fell in the doctors office trying to pick up a shoe.  Cracked a vertebrae in his back so can't do

much and taking pain pills.  He's a very active old man so a huge change.  Can't even watch his western

movies, has to go lay down often. 

Got the bike out of the basement for good yesterday and adjusted the John Deere cover so I can fit the bike

underneath it.  Changed the engine oil in the Monte Carlo SS and greased the front end.  Modern vehicles

have all sealed front end parts but the SS has grease fittings all the way across.  The floor mats are staying

angled so tried washing and drying them, see if that helps.  I need to put a stereo in it this Spring.

Have a great day all, enjoy the weather.

16 years since stopped smoke for me so think 16 in July for Kitty.  Two or three of us still check into the April Ashbustin Army every April.

Congrats on 16 years, Ernie. 

Nice weather here, but I came down with a head cold. Sneezing all day. Going to head to sleep now. 


From: Cocoa60


Good morning Paul.  48 here, not bad.  Didn't sleep all night on Tuesday night but did on Wednesday night.

So feel good this morn.  Have a hard time getting the temp of the room adjusted.  Left my window open all

night and slept all night.  Put AC unit in the living room but don't want to in the rest of the house yet.  Can't

open the windows after that.  Will get whole house AC in some day.  Thanks for congrats.  So glad we all made

it.  My longest time without making it was 11 months, sticks in my memory as long as I have one.

Thinking about riding my bike up to Morrisville today to walk Dixie, Brandy's sister, and Charlotte. 

Have a great day.

Good morning, Ernie, Paul, Kitty ~

A beautiful sunny day here.  We trekked to Massillon, OH for the burial of my best friend’s spouse.  Enjoyed a luncheon with the family and returned home at 5:00 p.m.  A blessing in that he suffered from Alzheimer’s for many many years.  He is at peace.

Sorry about your cold, Paul.  Allergies?   I have many.  Usually worse in the Spring with the budding flowers and trees.  

Congratulations, Ernie on your 16 years of being smoke free.  Did you ever put silkquit on your computer?   I have mine on the desktop of my old computer.  I will have to fire it up one day and see how many years and months I am at.  

Enjoy the day everyone.  I’m going to work on transplanting and moving some of the perennials today.

Hi Susan,

I don't have allergies that I know of. My sister acquired them in the last ten years, so maybe I also did. But I've always had many colds, in part from smoking. I generally get back pain with a bad cold, so I don't think it's allergies.

Enjoy the weather all, though too warm for me.
