Good Morning.

Yesterday Mike finally reached "Ben", the head of the Landscaping firm.  He said he would have the lilacs replaced and the Mock Orange installed probably within the next week!  I think he also said they would install the retaining wall around the Air Conditioner at that time so it won't fall down the hill one day.  How I wish we could have talked to him in the first place like we wanted to.  I know Matt meant to help us, but how much easier and better everything would have gone if he had just given us Ben's name and number.   Of course we might still be in for disappointment, but this finally sounds promising.

The automatic shade on the largest window in the family room has stopped working.  It's half down/half up and there it will remain until we can get it fixed.  I called Brian the Blinds Installer and he will come out and take a look at it in the next few days. Hopefully this is just something like the need for new batteries, but if not, he's the right guy to send it back to Hunter Douglas for us.   It's always something, isn't it?

smiley2

Lou Ann, you've outdone yourself with the luscious watermelon August skin!  I love it!   Delicious!    As always, the New Month sign in page is filled with interesting and funny facts.   Thanks so much for doing this for us!


smiley2

annnieM, I hope you are ok and just busy with your new helper.

 

smiley2

Mary Ann, I hope you too are ok and just house sitting in non PC friendly areas.


I miss you both.

HELLO DOROTHY...
Happy am I online with my friends...
Hey Dorothy I've been here this week!!!
I am so sorry you have been trouble having your plants to be replaced...
But see that's what happens when you unable to do it yourself...
you have depend on other people and they don't always do it your way...
Like replacing the plants when they looked bad!!! Yuk...
Hopefully since you've reached the right person at long last your
plants will get replanted...We can only hope & pray...

Things are hotter then a pistol here as usual I am hiding indoors!!!
When it gets too hot & muggy for me I go hibernate in my bedroom...
I have my sister's great A/C in my window it cools my room scrumptiously...

I stripped my bed this morning (flat, & fitted sheet, 4 pillow cases, & a quilt cover)
there all in the washer as I key this post...Time to take the flannel's off the bed!!!
I'm now putting on my lavender (Jersey Knit Sheet Set) on my bed...
I'm a little slow on switching over to non-flannel linen's...Lol...

I'm having a lot of trouble with my hands now!!! It really hurts to key on the
computer...One of these days I will have to get 'Dragon Speaking' program...

Blinds on the fritz??? Your right if it's not one thing it's another, yeah maybe
you do need to change the batteries like on your 'TV' remote have you tried
that yet???


Hail all Hail to*************************** LOU ANN
What an awesome August Page...
I stood up and gave you a 'Standing Ovation'
Just so right on it's unbelievable...

annnieM...

I hope your doing well and just busy with life I miss hearing from you as well...
I hope nothing is wrong and your not having troubles...Nobody is getting on
and giving us 'INPUT...WE NEED INPUT' as Johnny Five would say...

Yep girls this is the year and 'TODAY' is the day...I am officially a 'Medicare Card Holder'
I had to sign up for a prescription plan something I couldn't afford but I did it...
I'm also having them take the money out automatically from my 'Checking Account'
so I won't have to worry about their payment...Then I'm hoping my 'Medical Card'
will cover everything Medical doesn't cover...Keep your fingers crossed...I spent an
entire week calling number, after number, after number trying to get it all set up...
Whew thank the Lord that is done...

Dorothy, be sure and send us a 'pic' of your new plants once their in...
How about another 'Grand baby' pic too...

Catch ya later...

Healing Hugs & Prayers To All...

I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM FINALLY BACK IN HERE.  WHAT A CLUSTERF*CK!
I HOPE IT MANAGES TO STAY UP.  IT HAS BEEN A BUSY TIME BUT ALL IS
WELL.  MOM CELEBRATED HER 81ST BIRTHDAY SO WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED
WITH HER FOR ANOTHER YEAR WHEN WE WERE WORRIED THAT THERE
MIGHT NOT BE ANY MORE BIRTHDAYS LAST YEAR. SHE HAD A WONDERFUL
DAY WITH VISITS FROM OLD FRIENDS AND CHINESE WITH THE WHOLE 
FAMILY FOR SUPPER.  YUMMMMMMM.
CHOCOLATE CARAMEL CAKE AND CARROT CAKE FOR DESSERT AND ALSO
BUTTER PECAN ICE CREAM FORM KELLY'S CREAMERY.  I DIED AND WENT
TO HEAVEN. LOL.  SHE HAS BEEN ESPECIALLY FORGETFUL AND WHEN MY
SISTER WAS SHOWING 12 YEAR OLD PICS OF THE GRANDKIDS SHE ASKED 
WHO THEY WERE.  DIANE TAKES HER TO THE DOCTOR TOMORROW AND 
SHE WILL GET HER BLOOD CHECKED.  HOPEFULLY THAT IS THE CULPRIT.
ALL IS WELL WITH ME.  I AM GETTING RESTLESS AND DO NOT KNOW 
WHAT TO DO WITH MY SELF.  OH WELL...I THINK I WILL READ...THAT
SHOULD HELP.  MOM IS GOING WITH DIANE TO MY AUNTS IN ILLINOIS
THIS COMING WEEKEND SO I WILL BE ALONE.  I HAVE DECIDED TO
HAVE A HARRY POTTER MARATHON AND WATCH ALL 8 MOVIES....IF I
CAN FIND WHERE I PUT THEM,  THEY WERE NOT WHERE I THOUGHT
THEY WERE....STORY OF MY LIFE, LOL.
MARY ANN, I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE MEDICARE NOW.  SADLY,
THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF THINGS THEY WILL NOT PAY FOR.  THEY 
WILL PAY NOTHING TOWARD HEARING AIDES AND I CANNOT AFFORD
THEM ON MY OWN, SO I GO WITH OUT...AGAIN, THE STORY OF MY LIFE.
HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL IN HERE SOON.
HUGS,

I really was afraid I'd be the one person who couldn't get back in ~ or who couldn't get back in for ages.  What a relief to be Home!

So it looks like everyone but annnieM is able to get in ~ right?   I know she hasn't been posting much lately, so she may not even know we were locked out.    Hopefully when she does try to get in she is able to.

Soooo ~ how'd ya spend your "vacation"?  smiley78

I'm so glad we've had our Facebook site so we could keep in touch with each other, and keep in touch with what was going on in Aimoo.  I'm pretty sure not everyone is back yet, so we are lucky ~ even though we were locked out for a week.

smiley38
Mary Ann ~ lovely to see you post, but when you did, I couldn't!   Isn't that just the way?  lol

In answer to your questions, we were FINALLY able to talk directly to the Landscape Manager instead of going through an intermediary and he has promised to have the plants replaced and maybe the other work we wanted done.   He said by the end of this week, but it's rained every day so I'm guessing maybe next week ~~ I hope.  

We did get the blinds fixed, and it was only the batteries ~ thank goodness!

What's wrong with your hands?  Why are they hurting so much?

Congratulations and welcome to Medicare!

smiley38
Lou Ann ~ Happy Birthday WEEK to your Mom!   I'm sorry she had to spend it in the hospital?  How is she doing?

I'm so glad you got your medicare payment situation resolved!  That kind of uncertainty can drive you crazy!   

smiley38

Sooooo good to see all of your smiling faces.

  HELLO CUPPA'S
DOROTHY, I DO NOT KNOW WHY YOU THINK MY MOM SPENT HER BIRTHDAY
IN THE HOSPITAL....THAT WAS LAST YEAR.  SHE HAD A LOVELY BIRTHDAY
THIS YEAR.  SHE IS HOPING TO GO TO ILLINOIS WITH MY SISTER THIS
WEEKEND BUT HER HEMOGLOBIN WAS DOWN TO 9.3 WEDNESDAY AND SHE
GETS IT RECHECKED TOMORROW.  IF IT HAS NOT DROPPED BELOW 9 SHE 
WILL NOT GET BLOOD BEFORE GOING AND I FEAR SHE WILL BE WAY TOO
TIRED.  THEN ON TOP OF IT ALL, THEY ARE SHOWING THE HOUSE AGAIN
TOMORROW AFTERNOON.  SO WE NEED TO DO A CLEAN UP AGAIN.  NOT
TOO BAD REALLY, BUT I WILL CLEAN THE BATHROOM IN THE MORNING
AND SUZANNE IS SUPPOSED TO BE COMING TO VACUUM FOR US.  THAT
IS JUST TOO HARD ON EITHER OF US.
MARY ANN GOT IN BEFORE AIMOO WENT DOWN SO SHE PROBABLY DOES
NOT KNOW EITHER WHAT HAPPENED.  I SURE WISH ANNNIEM COULD
SPEND MORE TIME WITH US.  BUT I AM GLAD SHE IS BUSY IN HER WORLD.
I WONDER IF SHE FOUND SOMEONE SUITABLE ON CRAIG'S LIST.  IT WILL
NOT BE EASY SINCE SHE HAD SUCH A GEM.
WE HAVE BEEN HAVING LOVELY WEATHER AND HAVE NOT HAD TO HAVE 
THE AC ON SINCE THAT LONG HOT SPELL WE HAD.  THEN WE HAD A COLD
SPELL AND NOW JUST BEAUTIFUL WEATHER.  
I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE THEM TO GET MY MEDICARE
PREMIUM STRAIGHTENED OUT.  I HAVE ALREADY PAID 3 MONTHS
WORTH AND I BELIEVE THAT WILL BE REFUNDED TO ME.  I HOPE I
DO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS EVERY YEAR.  I HOPE NEXT YEAR
THEY SEND ME THE PAPERWORK IN A TIMELY MANNER.  I AM WRITING
IT ON MY CALENDAR TO CHECK INTO IT NEXT SPRING SO THAT THIS
DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.
HOPE ALL ARE HAVING A GREAT WEEK.

Do I even have to say it?   It's great to be HOME!    
I really am glad I set up the Facebook Cuppa for when things like this happen, but it could never be "home".  (Oops ~ I guess never say never, but I really hope Aimoo keeps us going here)  

I did check into Facebook before coming here and almost wish I hadn't.   I learned that a long time favorite author, Dr. Barbara Mertz who wrote as Barbara Michaels and Elizabeth Peters, has died.   I always feel as if I've lost a friend when I lose one of "my" authors.  I've been reading Barbara Michaels forever and Elizabeth Peters for a fair while.   So many of "my" authors have left me. smiley44  We met Dr Mertz at a signing at the Rue Morgue Bookstore in Boulder (which has also left me) several years ago.  She was charming and signed some of Barbara Michaels books for me, even though she was there as Elizabeth Peters.      RIP.

Enough sadness.  I'm trying to decide whether to put my hair color in today, or wait until Sunday.  Guess it depends on how lazy I am today.

AND, I have joined the rest of the world (?) in watching Downton Abby!  Better late than never?   We have zipped through Season 1 and are closing in on the end of Season 2.  It really is addictive.

smiley67
Lou Ann ~ sorry I got confused.   You posted a picture of your mom on her 80th birthday on Facebook, and with all that has been going on, I obviously short circuited and 'remembered' that it was a picture of THIS birthday.   I'm glad I was wrong, and she was NOT in the hospital, and instead just got to enjoy all that yummy birthday food with you!    I hope she is well enough to go to Ill for the weekend.

Good idea to note the Medicare update on your calendar in case they don't send you a notice in advance, or it gets lost in the mail.   I hope this all gets straightened out soon and you do get your refund!

How are things going with Suz and her family?

Good Morning!  It's Saturday, and we're still here.  smiley78

While it's unofficial and hasn't been diagnosed by a Dr, I can tell you.  I have Sleeping Sickness!   Yesterday I posted and had coffee in bed, then fell asleep, woke, fell back to sleep until close to 11!  Then I still couldn't 'get going'.  Finally did rouse myself and got my hair color in, but it wasn't done until the early afternoon!   Now this morning, I woke around 5 and went back to sleep ~ until 7:45!   Good Grief, Charley Brown!   I came back to bed and said loudly so Mike would hear it in the other room "What's the matter with you?  Are you gonna sleep all day?" and I heard a growl coming from under the covers.   Apparently I wasn't the only one sleeping in.  I'd forgotten that Shogun joined me after I went back to bed at 5.  So there you have it ~~ clearly we both have Sleeping Sickness!    Mike, btw, was "up" ~ sleeping in his chair in the front room!   What a family we are.  I'm sure Miss Chrystie was/is sleeping, too.

smiley4

Lou Ann, I would almost laugh, though I know it ain't funny.  Losing your post makes it seem like we're really back 'home' in Aimoo again, though.  Ha.

Hope today goes better.  Did your mom leave?  Are ya there alone having a Harry Potter-a-thon? 



I'm not sure what I'm doing with my day.   Right at this moment, I don't feel like going back to sleep, but ya never know!   lol

Have a Swell Saturday!

  OK, HERE WE GO AGAIN.  DOROTHY, YOUR STATEMENT DID MAKE ME
LAUGH
 AND THE WORDS "HONEY I'M HOME" FLASHED THROUGH MY
HEAD.  WE ARE
 HAVING BEAUTIFUL WEATHER AND I AM LOVING IT.  
NOT HOT!!!  SUNNY, BREEZY AND LOW 70'S AND SUPPOSED TO BE
THAT WAY ALL WEEK :)


NO DOROTHY, I AM NOT ENJOYING MY HARRY POTTER MARATHON :(
MOM'S BLOOD IS LOW AND SHE IS  FEELING THE EFFECTS BIG TIME.
IF SHE HAD GOTTEN A TRANSFUSION YESTERDAY, SHE WOULD HAVE
GONE, BUT HER HEMOGLOBIN WAS AT 9.1 AND IT HAS TO BE BELOW
9 FOR HER TO GET BLOOD.  SO WE DECIDED SHE NEEDED TO STAY
HOME  SHE IS SOB, HER COLOR IS POOR AND HER BALANCE IS OFF.
THIS SUCKS THAT THEY CANNOT MAKE EXCEPTIONS FOR THOSE THAT
REACT SO ACUTELY TO A LOW HEMOGLOBIN.  I AM KEEPING AN EYE
ON HER FOR HALLUCINATIONS, ETC.  LAST NIGHT SHE SCARED THE
CRAP OUT OF ME.  SHE WAS SITTING UPRIGHT AND FORWARD IN 
HER RECLINER WITH HER LEGS DOWN, LEANING FORWARD WITH
HER ELBOWS ON HER KNEES HOLDING HER HEAD.  THE NEXT THING
I KNEW SHE WAS SLUMPED WAY FORWARD, HEAD AND ARMS
DANGLING DOWN AND I THOUGHT SHE HAD PASSED OUT OR DIED.
I SCREAMED HER NAME AND SHE PULLED HERSELF BACK UP......
SHE HAD FALLEN ASLEEP.  OMG, MY HEART WAS RACING.  SO HERE
WE SIT TODAY, WITH NOTHING GOOD ON TV.  SO MANY MOVIES 
I WOULD LIKE TO WATCH AND CANNOT.  I COULD CRY.

MY MOM HAS YOUR SLEEPING SICKNESS EVERY DAY.  I HAVE BEEN
SLEEPING BEAUTIFULLY FOR A LONG TIME NOW.  I SEEM TO GO IN
STREAKS AND REALLY HATE IT WHEN I AM IN THE "SLEEPLESS"
MODE AND WHEN SLEEP IS BROKEN UP.  USUALLY ONCE I GET UP
TO GO TO THE BATHROOM AND I AM UP FOR THE DAY.  IF IT IS 
REAL EARLY THEN I DO GO BACK TO SLEEP AND THEN I USUALLY
SLEEP SEVERAL MORE HOURS SO SLEEP MORE WHEN THAT HAPPENS.

SUZ AND FAMILY WILL BE MOVING THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH.  
I REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT ALL IS GOING ON THERE.  I REALLY
HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING IF SHE HAS STOPPED.  I WARNED HER
AND I WROTE AND WARNED BOTH THE BOYS THAT IF ANY OF IT
HAPPENED AGAIN IN ANY WAY THAT WE WOULD NOT HESITATE
TO TURN THE PROOF WE HAVE OVER TO THE POLICE.  THIS IS 
THEIR ONE AND ONLY CHANCE TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT.  I HOPE
AND PRAY THAT THEY HAVE.

SUZ DID DO OUR GROCERY SHOPPING THIS MORNING AND THEN
PICKED UP LUNCH FROM GQ.  I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED WITH
THEIR $5.00 LUNCH.  I GOT A GRILLBURGER, FRIES, SODA AND A
STRAWBERRY SUNDAE...MOM GOT HERS WITH CHICKEN STRIPS
AND SUZ GOT THE CHILI CHEESE DOG.  THOSE ARE THE THREE
OPTIONS THEY HAVE.  MY BURGER WAS BELICIOUS AND ACTUALLY
A CHEESEBURGER, CHARBROILED WITH TOMATO, LETTUCE, ONION
AND MAYO...YUM.  I WAS SO STUFFED AND COULD NOT EVEN EAT
ALL MY FRIES.  TOMORROW SHE IS COMING OVER TO DO THE 
LAUNDRY.

MAYBE I CAN ROKU A MOVIE FROM AMAZON THAT MOM WOULD LIKE
FOR TONIGHT.  UNLESS THERE IS A NEW HALLMARK MOVIE ON.  WE
NEVER MISS THOSE :)

HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY.
HUGS,

What's happening in your world on this Sunny Sunday?

I stayed awake all day yesterday!   I was so excited about staying awake all day that I thought I was healed of the Sleeping Sickness.  Then I went to sleep around midnight and woke up around 2AM and dozed on and off until now.  Now I have awake-sickness?   Hmmmm.  I suspect another wide awake day is not in my immediate future.  Ha.


Lou Ann, I'm so sorry your mom isn't feeling well.  I can not understand why they can't get her blood situation under control, especially after they have done for/to her.  Bless her heart ~ and yours!  I know from personal experience that it is often harder on the care-giver than the one who is ill.

On a more selfish level, I'm sorry she couldn't go on her trip so you could watch some of YOUR movies and TV shows.    I certainly know that isn't important in the scheme of things, but I wish you could have a little "you time" too.   Just a little.     I can imagine how scared you were when she passed out!

I'm glad Suz is at least acknowledging the problem and isn't acting "mad" at you.   That she is still doing the things for you and your mom made me feel so much better.  I know you rely on her.   You also needed to put the fear of God into her, for her own good.

We are burning through the Downton Abbys on Amazon Prime at an alarming rate.  We're halfway through Season 3 already!  I know we should space and savour them more, but when one ends we can hardly wait to see what happens next.  I'm going to be so sorry to see this end, and it's going to end very quickly at the rate we are going. 

We're watching another BBC series, Copper, but I won't recommend it to you.  It's very violent and dark, normally not the kind of thing either of us likes, but it s so well done we have to keep coming back.  We've almost gone through the entire first two seasons of that, too.  Season three is on BBC now, so we'll have a couple to watch to catch up.  I can see why it's won some awards.   NY in the early 1900s.  Our protagonist is an Irish cop and the Dr is a black man (Negro at the time).   His wife is the daughter of a former slave, but she could be Lady Sarah on Downton if she were white.  So articulate, educated and well spoken.   I 'need' to know her backstory.  How did this lovely elegant black woman get to be the way she is in the time in which she lived?   Alfrie Woodard plays her mother, just purchased and freed by a white friend.

Have a happy day!

HELLO CUPPA'S
LOL, WISHFUL THINKING. I SHOULD SAY HELLO DOROTHY :)
NOTHING MUCH GOING ON IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS. NOT
MUCH ON TV EITHER. WENT TO AMAZON VIA ROKU AND WHAT
DOES MOM PICK? THE ROCKETTES CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. IT WAS
NOT BAD, BUT I HAVE NEVER REALLY GOTTEN INTO THEM. MOM
SAW THEM IN PERSON BEFORE SHE MARRIED MY DAD. SHE WENT
TO NEW YORK BY TRAIN WITH SOME FRIENDS FROM WORK. SHE
ALSO SAW SOUTH PACIFIC WHILE SHE WAS IN NEW YORK. THAT
WAS MANY MOONS AGO, LOL.
I THINK THAT COPPER SOUNDS VERY INTERESTING. BUT THAT
IS JUST ANOTHER SHOW MY MOM WOULD NOT WANT TO WATCH.
I DID GET HER TO WATCH THE NEW SERIES ON HALLMARK....
CEDAR COVE. I HOPE IT GETS MORE EXCITING. IT IS GOOD
BUT NOT REALLY RIVETING AT THIS POINT. BUT IT IS WELL
DONE AND I LIKE THE ACTORS IN IT.
MOM GOES FOR A PACEMAKER CHECK TOMORROW AND A BLOOD
TEST. PROBABLY HAVE TO WAIT TILL TUESDAY FOR TRANS-
FUSION AS SHE IS NOT GOING TILL AROUND 10 AS DIANE HAS
AN APPT TOO. SHE WILL GET MOM TO HERS AND THEN GO TO
HER OWN. MOM WILL GET A VOLUNTEER TO BRING HER BACK
DOWN TO WAIT FOR DIANE. 
TIME TO SAY GOOD NIGHT. HAVE A GREAT MONDAY.
HUGS.

  Good Morning, my lovelies.

Another day in the mid-80s, and Mike is planning to grill a steak tonight.    This morning we are going to Comcast to see about switching our Internet Service from Century Link to Comcast.   Last month Mike took a converter box we don't need back in and the woman there said they were having a good price reduction to switch (which is true, online) and that she would give him an even better deal if he came back and got it through her rather than just phoning in.   We talked about it, then sort of forgot about it, but all month long every time it rained we've lost our DSL Internet connection!   We're taking it as "a sign" and going to go in and talk to her today.  It sounds like we will have everything we have today for $1 more for 6 months, PLUS a much faster speed.  If we delete our Century Link Internet, we'll save about $40 and then supposedly when the price goes up in 6 months it will only go up $20 so we'll still be ahead. 

I'm a bit skeptical about getting anything but Cable through the Cable company because they raise their rates about ever 15 minutes, but I think ~ if it's as good a deal as she told him it would be ~ we'll give it a try.  We can always go back to Century Link (I think). 

smiley71 Lou Ann.    Looks like it's just you and me, Kid.  Beautiful border!

I watched one episode of Cedar Cove, but now I can't remember a thing about it, or even where I found it.  It was a while back.

Copper is pretty violent, and not usually the kind of thing either of us usually likes, but it's
somehow gripping and we are hooked.   Tonight we have a full compliment of TV viewing, starting with Major Crimes, then King and Maxwell (season finale' after about 5 or 6 episodes!) then Longmire. 

I hope all goes well with your mom's tests tomorrow (today?)   It's too bad they can't transfuse her at the same time if she needs it.




We've been watching Downton Abby (streamed from Amazon Prime) and instead of watching one a week like you would if you were not watching OLD Seasons, we have burned through all three Seasons in just a short time.  We really should have savored them more, but every time one episode ends it leaves us wanting to see what happens next.   Now we have to wait for Season Four with the rest of the world.smiley49   It's a PBS show, and before we started watching I saw that they had a three hour special hosted by Angela Landsbury, recapping what had happened in the first three seasons and touring the Abby and such, so I wanted to see it.  After half an hour ~ you guessed it!   It was a Fund Raiser!   I can't believe I didn't see that coming!   I can be such a Dim Bulb sometimes.   We didn't finish watching the Fund Raiser, but we did start watching Downton Abby and really loved it.  The Fund Raisers, not so much.  lol


Have a Happy Day, all.

HELLO DOROTHY
WELL, MOM HAD HER PACEMAKER CHECK UP AND ALL IS WELL THERE.  THEN SHE WENT AND HAD HER
BLOOD DRAW.  HER DOCTOR'S OFFICE CALLED BEFORE SHE EVEN MADE IT HOME.  BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
HER HGB WENT UP.  LOL, WE WERE SHOCKED.  WENT FROM 9.1 TO 9.4, SO NOW SHE HAS TO RECHECK
ON THURSDAY.  THIS SUCKS AS MOM REALLY IS TIRED AND NOT SLEEPING WELL.
WE ARE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY TOO.  I MISSED A BUNCH OF EPISODES SO I THINK I WILL TRY TO
GO BACK AND WATCH THEM.  WHAT I WAS AMAZED BY WAS HOW WELL THEY TREATED THEIR SERVANTS.  IT WAS FAR FROM THE NORM FOR THAT TIME PERIOD.  I FIND THE SHOW FASCINATING.
CEDAR COVE IS ON THE HALLMARK CHANNEL.  THE NEW EPISODES PREMIERE SATURDAYS AT 7PM
CENTRAL TIME.  THEN REPEATS LATER AND AGAIN SEVERAL TIMES ON SUNDAY.  THEY ARE ADDING
NEW CHARACTERS AND LETTING US GET TO KNOW THEM.  A COUPLE OF INTERESTING TWISTS AND
YOU CAN SEE THAT SOME OF THE CHARACTERS ARE NOT NICE AND WAITING TO SEE WHERE THAT
GOES.  I DO LIKE THE SERIES BUT HOPE IT GETS A LITTLE MORE EXCITING, LOL.
HAVE A TERRIFIC TUESDAY.
HUGS.
