I did not give you the name curmudgeon....you have called Mike and yourself that in the past.  Well, I thought you had.  I just looked the word up and it obviously does not mean what I thought it did and you certainly would not have referred to yourselves that way.  In fact I am sure you would not have unless you were joking.  I apologize profusely.  I thought the word was interchangeable with hermit.  I am so, so sorry!  I did not mean that.  I should have said you are loosing your hermit status.  Boy do I feel like and ass.
That is so funny, I was just thinking about cheesecake yesterday. Now that we have no kids in grade or middle school, we never get fundraisers where we can get that sort of thing.  I suppose we could make one.  lol
Charter came and the tech guy right from the start thought it was our TV. So did the tech on the phone.  But he went ahead and ran all the gammon of tests and it turned out it was our TV.  So Joanne took mom to get a new one.  Meanwhile I am on the computer trying to find out when we bought it because I knew we had an extended warranty on it.  I found the order on my Walmart acct.  March 4, but no year.  Nowhere.  So I went to my credit card and when backwards until I found it on the Apr. 2013 statement.  Amazing, 3.5 yrs old.  Still under warranty.  So I called them and I did have to find the model number on the back of the TV, that took everything I had, lol.  So, they will send a box for us to pack it up and pay for postage to send it to them in.  They will repair it or if unable they will replace it.  Woo hoo, it paid to have the warranty. So I called my sister and they had already paid for the new tv and were on their was home. So now we will have 2 tv's.  Jo offered to buy the new one from us.  But we figure, that unless we get a new one back, the old one would probably not last that much longer. I am going to take the old one into my room and get the cable restored to that room.  Or just run a cable to my room from the back and get another cable box for my room.  
I do the same thing with my tags.  Substituting for things I do not have or learning how to do a section that I love, but then it is my own.  That is what is cool about tutorial that teach you how to do things and then you applying them in your own way.  Everyone learns how to somewhere.  School, classes, friends, etc.  Does not matter how.  You might even think of something no one else has ever done. Cool, huh?
 Hoping Mikes appt. went well or that he got the answers to whatever has been bothering him.  Maybe he does not like being a passenger in a car and is only comfortable being the driver?  Or is he not that way.  Time to move on. XOXOXO

Good Morning 

 and Happy 70th Birthday Mike! smiley71smiley66 

Mike's appointment with his Neurologist went well yesterday.  The Dr felt he was doing well (I'm not so sure I agree, but I'm not the Dr).  He wrote a prescription for one of his Blood Pressure pills to be reduced to half a pill, though he does not want to take over monitoring his non-Parkinson's meds, and he increased the dosage of Mike's main Parkinson's pill by 1/2 a pill once a day.   He has been taking 6 Carbidopa-Levodopa pills throughout the day, and now will take 6 1/2.  We'll see what that does, along with reducing the BP meds just a bit.   The Parkinson's meds are known to have "gaps" when they sort of run out and your energy lags, and Parkinsons lowers your BP, so along with the meds he is taking, that also impacts his energy.  On the other hand, more Parkinson's medicine can lead to more dyskenesia (that jerky motion Michael J Fox has).   Apparently nothing can be done for the balance issues.   

He clearly felt good all day yesterday and it showed.  Some days he looks like the last rose of summer, so he doesn't have to tell me how he is feeling.  Yesterday he looked positively "perky" without the change of meds.  ;-)

Afterwards we went for breakfast at the Ralston Road Cafe.  We hadn't been in ages, though it used to be a favorite breakfast place.   It looked the same, but the food wasn't as good as we remembered.

Later in the morning, Shauna came over with her samples of her home made cheese cake she is using for the fund raiser, and oh MY are they good!   They are not like 'regular' cheese cake, but much lighter and heavenly.  Plain for $7, Cherry for $8 and Strawberry for $9.  Do I have to tell you we took one of each?  lol.  I made sure they would freeze, of course, and we'll have one for when Mary Ann and Benji are here. 

Speaking of Mary Ann and Benji ~ Mike got another LOAD of cards from the family yesterday.   I laughed right out loud when I saw them all.  The mantle is going to be full, and he hasn't even gotten cards from his sister Marianne and our niece Laine, yet, though I know both have sent cards.  It just delights me because it delights him to be celebrated for his BIG-7-0.

LOL ~ Please don't beat yourself up about the curmudgeon remark.   I just wondered if I came across that way, and thought if I do I'd better pay more attention to how I say things.   Mike and I both definitely own the Hermit title!  ;-)

I would have said it was hard to believe that your 3 1/2 year old TV already had to be replaced ~~~ IF we hadn't just replaced our slightly over 5 year old TV!   We had a 5 year warranty, which of course had run out.   In the past, TV's lasted so long you had to shoot 'em or something to kill them.  We've had them last over 20 years and replaced them when they were still working just because we wanted a newer version.  I thought it was insane when ours only lasted 5 years, but here you are having the same experience!   Mike LOVES the new TV, especially since he got the new Receiver.  I think it's excellent, but the "old" one looked pretty good to me, too.  What do I know?   This one is the 4K HD (or something ~ Ha!)   I know you will enjoy your new one, and it will be good to have the old restored (or old made new) one in your room.

I just got a note from Kathy, my Stampin Up lady saying something very close to the same thing we had been saying.  I had asked her for details (color, etc) about the cards we made at her class the other day, and she told me, but said feel free to do it your own way, and that she had CASE'd it from somewhere else and changed it just a bit.  (CASE = Copy And Share Everything.  I'd always wondered what that meant.  Ha!)   The main thing is just to have fun.  

So now I will confess.  Be prepared to laugh at me.  I am now a Stampin Up Demonstrator.  Actually, I am a Stampin Up Demonstrator PRETENDER.  LOL    They sold starter kits and threw in bonus supplies, so I got $165 of supplies for $99.  I made no pretense to Kathy about what I was doing and why I was doing it, but I am officially on her team, and so were the other two ladies at the class.  They are both "real" demonstrators and expected me to act like one, too.  How disappointing for them ~~ LOL.

I'm not being modest, I really have no intention of actually being a demonstrator.  First, I don't know nearly enough, and second I don't drive anymore so I can't go all over the place holding classes and selling stuff.   I just want my discount.     That said, I am going to have a neighborhood party on October 2nd, and Kathy is going to make packets of Halloween things for us to make and demonstrate them.   She charges $10 for the people to make 3 cards and she furnishes everything to make them with.  It's fun, and you come away with three cards you have made.   One of them will be the cutest shaker card, with a witch flying over the moon!

My problem is that I have seating for 6 people including myself around the table and she needs 5 customers to make it profitable.  I can't invite the whole neighborhood in case everyone came and I didn't have a place to put them (no, before you suggest, there are reasons I don't want to set up a separate card table in the living room).  So, I'm going to ask people on a first come first served basis, and if one can't come I'll move on to the next one on my list.  That sounds so cold, but I don't know what else to do to ensure that we have enough and not too many people.   I will start getting nervous a week or two ahead.  You know me.  Ha.  I'm just going to have cookies and maybe one non-sweet thing, and coffee, tea and water.   All the other parties I have gone to have included something alcoholic, and I know that I will need booze, so I'll think about that too.  

Oooh, way more information than I'd intended to pour over you.  Ha!    Sherri said she would order from me, and I told her I wouldn't feel right about taking her away from Kathy, since we both started and bought from Kathy at that first meeting.   Kathy insisted that Sherri should buy from me, so I guess I may have a customer. Unless she just buys everything from Hobby Lobby or Joanns. LOL

ENUF!   

Interestingly, while Mike originally was very hesitant to let Mary Ann and Benji drive us to the mountains (to my surprise), now he says he thinks he'd like to go.  It will depend on how he feels when the time comes, and that means we have to have a back up plan or meals.   Then he said he'd really rather drive himself!   (He is driving ~ me insane!)   He really always has preferred to drive than be a passenger, but driving now makes him somewhat nervous.  Who knows how he'll feel when they get here. LOL  I really miss our weekly trips to the mountains.

My laundry still awaits, but I'm not going to handle it until tomorrow.  Today is Party Day!  In fact, we already started the day off with a little private celebration.

Happy Birthday Mike!! Hope you share many more with Dorothy.   You still have time to celebrate in style.
I had a really bad night and am so sleepy. Going to bed at midnight and getting up at 6am to shower and go for my eye appt at 7:45.  With any luck I will be home by 9am.  Then I will see about ordering my glasses from Zenni.
I have nothing done for the new page or skin so will have get on that when I get home  
I am sorry, but I keep falling asleep and mom yells at me to go to bed.
I am going to bed now.  Tell Mike I am happy his Dr. appt. went well.  Good news.  Well I will see you tomorrow.
XOXOXO

Good Morning!

The party should be over ~ but I granted Mike a one week extension. ;-)

I have to share a truly funny experience from yesterday.  I looked out of the window and here was this delivery lady coming up the walk with a huge bag of balloons ~ almost as big as she was!   I hooted right out loud!   Almost as much fun was watching Mike try to release the balloons, sent by my nieces and great niece and nephews and the great-greats, from the sack.  I wish I'd taken a video!

    

Lunch at the Hideaway was good, but not as good as my birthday lunch had been. Still, we enjoyed it and brought home leftovers for tonight's dinner.  They did give him a delicious cream brulee topped with a birthday candle. 


In the afternoon, we shared a glass of excellent Sherry and Mike opened his gifts.  Later we had a piece of his birthday cake with coffee.  All in all, a nice day. 


I passed your Happy Birthday wishes on to him, and he was very pleased and said to thank you!

  We're looking at maybe 81 degrees today, but with only a 10% chance of rain.  Last night I got a Code Red Alert on my cellphone that we were to expect a big storm with damaging winds, heavy rain and hail, but luckily we only got a little bit of rain.  I do hate it when it hails, and I'm not crazy about the strong winds, either.  We did see some lightening ~ which I don't love either.

I will surely pray for your Eye Dr Visit to be GOOD!

I was laying in bed last night and I had the thought that I hadn't thanked you for the lovely tag you gave me. Too much going on, and apparently my mental buffers are full ~ lol.  Now today there is another!  Thank you so much for BOTH of them.  They are beautiful, and so are the borders!

Please don't worry about the new page!  It will be wonderful whenever you make it.  I just really appreciate your doing that just for the two of us, but it definitely isn't worth your stressing over for just us.

Sending good thoughts for your appointment!
