OMG, your shish kabobs look wonderful. 

Now I am truly drooling...yum, yum.  Again I am jealous.

Tonight was pot luck so I threw together left over rice,

my homemade salsa and hot dog chopped up.  The rice and

salsa was delish...almost like a Spanish rice but beef would 

have been far better than hot dog, even if it was an all beef

frank, hahaha.  We were posting at the same time. I would 

have been posted sooner but I was waiting for the grand

finale next door, but it turned out to be a dud. I lay you odds

that Chris is not talking to us tomorrow.

Goodnight my Sistuhfriend!!

Love, LA

Good Morning.

I have my one month follow up with Dr Kim this afternoon.  Should be no big deal, but I'm a bit nervous about it.  While I am having trouble with the new device ~ it's pretty uncomfortable ~ there is nothing to be done about it.    I'm just hoping we can keep on my regular schedule ~ annual appointments with Echo Cardiograms every two or sometimes three years ~ and not have to come in more often.   Not the worst thing in the world, of course, but something I'd rather not have happen.

Unfortunately diuretics make me sick, so no, I don't take them.   I wish I could.  I know what you mean about that tight feeling ~ mummy legs!  

I gripe and grumble about having to bundle up in my own home, but talking to my online friend Shiela who lost her beloved husband 8 years ago and still misses him every day, I'd a whole lot rather gripe and grumble about being cold than have perfect temps and no Mike.  

OhMyGosh, you don't have to watch Soap Operas, you can just watch the neighbors!   I can't believe the girlfriend  just coming into your house and pouring out her personal feelings and information to perfect strangers.   I would like to have been a fly on the wall when the three of them were together and Chris "attacked" her.  That seems to be a pattern with Chris, but what the heck was Scott doing, just enjoying having two women fight over him?   Can't wait to hear the next installment.

How do they get into the back upstairs apartment to do drugs and drink?  Isn't it kept locked?   

I gave Mike those skewers for his birthday ~ we gave a set to his sister and bil when they built a new fancy BBQ, and he said he'd like some.  Then he wanted me to load the skewers up, but I refused.  I thought this should be his 'thing', and once he did the first one and I offered to do the rest, he refused.  lol.  When he brought them in from the grill, I put two of them individually into foil and wrapped them up.  All we have to do tonight is pop them in the oven to warm them and we can have another lovely meal.  ;-)   Maybe I'll add a little butter to the inside of the foil packets before we heat them.  LOVE an Ez-Pz meal!

Doesn't it crack you up the spelling corrections Auto Correct gives you?   Worse is when you are on your phone or iPad and typing away and don't realize the changes it has made for you and hit send.  BLUSH.  lol

smiley25

Did you  see the new Carly Fiorina advertisement?  I love it.  Trump had said about her "Look at that face.  Could you vote for that face?" (or something like that).   He later said he wasn't talking about her looks, but he clearly was.    Her ad showed all sorts of women's faces and said "Look at all your faces.  This is the face of leadership." and then she said "This is the face of a 61 year old woman, and I'm proud of every year and every wrinkle".  Then she went on to say that Women were not a Special Interest Group ~ we are the majority of the Nation!   Bang!  Take that  ridiculous "War on Women".    I really resent being considered a helpless victim who needs to be taken care of, don't you?   Besides that, I love the way she dresses.  lol

Thank you for my beautiful tag!    Have a wonderful day.

I hope that your appt went well. Even under the best circumstances I still get nervous going to the doctor. There is always that fear that he/she is going to tell you something devastating or at the least, something you do not want to hear.

I love the look of those skewers. I wish we could still grill outside. I would get me a chair out there and grill away. We have done kabobs up at the cottage and everyone makes there own so you know what you like. We were doing so many it got hard to remember who's was who's? Should have had markers for them like the wine glass charms they have now a days, lol.

Yep, it is a regular Peyton Place around here. Turns out that the "girlfriends" plan to get Chris in trouble backfired and the police took her to jail. But Scott bailed her out. But has told her he does not want her coming around and he does not want to see her any more. He and Chris are trying to work things out and Chris is getting counseling to deal with her anger issues. Seems because that woman came on the property where Chris lives and confronted her and I guess she was the first to "put hands on", Chris did not exactly touch the woman, she ripped the headphones off of her and threw her Walkman or whatever kind it was. Chris did find it out there today and it was in pieces. So they took her and now Chris has a Restraining Order against her and Scott is getting one. She has been stalking Scott at work and at the house. This was not the first time she had been to the house. The problem is that Scott's mom is encouraging the other woman because she hates Chris now. She cam over the other night and they would not answer the door because they knew it was her. She pounded and yelled and when she left she said "Well, now he does not have a father or a mother". So she was bringing some of Scott's things to him and when they would not answer she took it to that woman's house and let him know he could get it there. This was before last nights fiasco. Chris did not quit her job, she is on leave until they can fit her onto the day shift. Then she ans Scott would be on the same shift and he would have no reason to roam. Oh so much fun. The back upper appt is occupied. Debbie lives there and Chris and Scott often go up there to drink with them. Debbie has a daughter who has a little boy who is about 4. Debbie babysits him a lot and he is a brat. Debbie and Dtr are white...Dtr bf the child's father is black, he and other men come around a lot. They come, go up and are back down and gone in minutes. Drugs! I do not know what it is about the apartment...it seems to be a drug dealer magnet! Kathy in the front upper says she is afraid of these men and she is not comfortable in her apt now. He son wants her to move but she loves her apt. (my old one) and she could end up worse somewhere else...you cannot pick your neighbors. I think we need to let Bud know. We will see.

Gotta shut down and unwind so that I can sleep.

Talk to you tomorrow my dear!

Hugs,

Good Morning, My Lovely.

It's going to be in the mid 80s again today.  Nice.

I brought my Fairy God Mother (tag) with me today because she was definitely with me yesterday.    I know I'm foolish to stress over little things or "what might be", but knowing that and being able to control it are two different things.   

Appointments with Dr Kim have been so different than appointments with Dr Breckenridge, who retired.  Dr B would come out to get me himself, right at the appointed time, then take me back to his office to talk to me, then send me across the hall to the exam room, and when the exam was over, bring me back to the office.  Everything was right on time and efficient but never rushed.     Dr Kim has a helper (I never know what to call them) come and get me and take my "vitals", then have me take off my shoes and sit on that uncomfortable table and wait.  And wait.  And wait.  Then he breezes in, always in a hurry, glances at my feet, listens to my heart, asks if I have any questions and he's gone.  His time with me, less than 10 minutes.  My time in the office, 30 - 40 minutes.  Because he always seems so rushed, I never think of the questions I should have asked.  Just so different than I was used to all of those years.

Yesterday it was scheduled as a 15 minute appointment to follow up on the surgery. 'She' came only a few minutes late, took me back and took my vitals and had me take my shoes and socks off (the man has a Foot Fetish!) and left me in a chair.  He came in not long afterwards and was so pleasant and while business like, not so rushed that I felt like I was imposing on his time.  We talked a bit, then he asked me to get on the table.  I told him to give me a few minutes because I had a balance issue, he asked why and I told him, then he said I could just stay in the chair.  Such a small thing, but so nice for me.  He listened to my heart, checked my feet, and said we could be on the regular schedule of six month visits.  I asked him if I should be concerned because I was used to annual (every 12 month) visits with echos every two years.  We negotiated!   I can see him for my annual visit in a year unless something comes up, but I will need annual echos unless they stay unchanged.  My Aortic Stenossis was diagnosed as "mild" in 2012 and "moderate" in 2015.  It definitely makes sense to me to keep an eye on it.  For now, I'm scheduled for another echo in May, and my annual in September, and I'm a happy camper.  

He also talked about the surgery if I ever do need to have the valve replaced.  In the past, they had to "Crack the chest" (could anything sound more awful?!) and the recovery time, I understand, was lengthy.  He says that within 5 years he expects the standard to be going in through the groin and replacing the valve.  Still not something I would "enjoy", but oh, so much less fear inducing than the other way.  He said the longer I didn't need it, the better the likelihood of doing it the new way would be.  So, I think I just won't need it at all, ok?   We also talked about the symptoms of it getting worse so I know what to look for.  So far I have one and a half ~ LOL

I also told him that while I thought the new device was supposed to be smaller, it felt larger and was uncomfortable.  He explained that it was smaller, but the pocket the old one lived in was larger, and the new one had room to move around, and that's what's causing my discomfort (a bit of pain).  I didn't ask why he didn't take a stitch inside to tighten the pocket ~ see, I can be nice once in a while.  Ha.   ANYWAY, that's all the news that's fit to print ~ and much more than you probably wanted to know. 

Tonight we plan to pick up a Chicken sandwich at Chic-Fil-A and then come home and watch the second debate.  Unfortunately it's on CNN, but we still want to watch.


Your way of having everyone do their own Kabobs sounds delightful!  Since it's just the two of us, I hadn't thought about the "fun" of trying to satisfy everyone ~~ This one will not eat a mushroom, that one wants Pineapple or jalipinos or something.  It would drive you crazy trying to satisfy everyone in a large crowd.  Keeping the individual skewers straight ~ whose is whose ~ would be a challenge.

 Our KaBobs were even better on day two!  As I said, I each of the two we didn't eat on day one in foil and last night we just added some melted, slightly salted butter and put them in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes.  Delicious!  Mike had marinated the meat before he cooked them, but not the veggies.

Darn!  I wish you did have Netflix, and that your mom liked some of "our" shows.  Yesterday Netflix started streaming Season 3 of "Miss Fisher's Murders", and Seasons 1&2 are out there too.   It has been only on Acorn.   It's Australian and Mike and I love it.  It's as different from Longmire as night from day, but delightful, to us anyway.   It's set in the 1920s, in Australia.  Miss Fisher is an "honerable" which I think means she's a shirt tail relative of the Royal Family.  She's rich, beautiful, and way more "modern" in the 1920s than I am now.  The show is worth watching for her clothes alone.  They have actually had her clothes on display several times in Australia.  Fabulous.  The ensemble cast is good and you would recognize "Aunt Prudence" from Harry Potter.   

OhMyGosh, you do live in "Interesting Times"~ LOL.  I do remember your mentioning that Kathy was nervous (as I would be too) about the string of unsavory characters trapsing up the stairs to that apartment.  I had forgotten.  Sounds like JUST what Chris and Scott need, more drugs and booze.  Bad news with Scott's mom encouraging the girl friend, too.  I hope they can straighten themselves out, cuz they sound like basically good kids, but I won't put money on it.   

As far as Debbie and her family, all I can say is that's a terrible way to raise a kid, poor little guy.   Thanks for catching me up on all the "goings on"!   You stay safe now, y'heah?!

I was thinking "What a pretty tag and border" ~ then I realized that I had made the border. lol.  Obviously I didn't remember, but it does go perfectly with the beautiful tag, doesn't it?  Thank you!

TODAY WAS A VERY UNEXCITING DAY.  JUST THE WAY WE LIKE IT, LOL. NO MORE TROUBLE FROM CHRIS AND SCOTT.  THEY WERE A LITTLE STANDOFFISH YESTERDAY
BUT TODAY SHE APOLOGIZED TO US FOR HAVING TO PUT UP WITH ALL THE DRAMA. WE WILL SEE HOW LONG THE PEACE AND QUIET LASTS. CARE TO MAKE A WAGER? LOL  

I AM GLAD YOUR APPT WENT WELL. PERHAPS THE DOCTOR IS GETTING SETTLED INTO HER SCHEDULE AND THEREFORE ABLE TO BE MORE EFFICIENT WITH HER TIME.

MY MOM HAS HAD HER CHEST "CRACKED" 2X. JUST THE THOUGHT OF IT MAKES ME SHUDDER. THEY GIVE YOU A TEDDY OR A PILLOW TO CLUTCH TO YOUR CHEST IF YOU HAVE TO COUGH SO THAT YOUR CHEST CANNOT EXPAND MUCH WITH THE COUGH. THERE IS A GOOD AMOUNT OF RECOVERY TIME MUCH DEPENDING ON YOUR AGE. NOT SOMETHING YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TO.  

THAT POOR LITTLE GUY UPSTAIRS IS A ROTTEN SPOILED BRAT. HE WALKS INTO OUR APARTMENT WITHOUT KNOCKING OR ASKING AND THEN GETS INTO THINGS AND DOES NOT STOP WHEN YOU TELL HIM TO.  AND HE HAS ONE OF THOSE STUPID IDIOTIC MADE UP NAMES.  WE CAN HEAR HIM RUNNING ALL OVER THE PLACE AT ALL HOURS...3-4 IN THE MORNING. LAST WEEK HE THOUGHT IT WAS FUN TO RING THE BACK DOORBELL AND RUN. MORE THAN ONCE.  MOM YELLED AT HIM AND THEN HE DID NOT DO IT ANYMORE. HE HAD AN OLDER GIRL WITH HIM AND IT MAY HAVE BEEN SHOWING OFF. SHE DID TELL HIS GRANDMA ABOUT IT.  IT IS TOO HARD FOR EITHER OF US TO GET DOWN THE BACK STEPS TO THE DOOR FOR NO REASON, LET ALONE THE GETTING UP AND HURRYING TO THE BACK OF THE HOUSE TO TRY AND GET THERE BEFORE THE PERSON LEAVES. IF I AM HOME ALONE, I DO NOT ANSWER IT. THEY CAN COME TO THE FRONT DOOR.  USUALLY IT IS SOMEONE LOOKING FOR THE UPPER BACK APT.  BUT, I SUPPOSED IT IS NOT HIS FAULT HE IS BEING RAISED AND EXPOSED TO WHAT HE IS. IT CANNOT BODE WELL FOR HIM IN LIFE.  
I HAVE SEEN PICTURES OF THE CLOTHING FROM MISS FISHER'S MURDERS, THEY WERE GORGEOUS!! SO FABULOUS..IT MAKES YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE LIVED BACK THEN.

I AM GOING TO GO WORK ON SOME CHALLENGES. CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW MY DEAR FRIEND.  
HUGS,

Good Morning!

I slept soundly (YAY!) but woke up too early. Still, I won't complain, getting some solid sleep for a change.  

It's supposed to be a bit cooler today, only reaching 80.  I'll take it!   Supposed to really cool down tomorrow, but then pop back up into the high 80s.  Trees are changing at the higher elevations, but it's still Summer here.

I did watch the debates all last evening ~ and I do mean ALL.  Mike fizzled.  I can't even begin to understand how you could get bored, but he got fidgety and then went back to the bedroom to watch something else.  I don't understand him at all.  LOL

Later we watched an episode of Miss Fisher which helped me wind down.   There are too many GOOD candidates.  For me, no one is breaking through as the clear choice.  I would be delighted with many of them.  I have been able to eliminate several from those I will vote for in the Primary, but frankly, most of those I could have guessed that I would eliminate.   

The early show debate moderators were what I expected from CNN ~ just plain irritating.  Demanding a quick answer without listening to it and then move on ~ it was all about the "brilliant" question and possible sound bite.  These debates are about ME, as a registered Republican who will vote in the Primary, and I wanted to hear the answers completed, not only what was said, but how it was said.  Moderators thought it was all about them, the Entertainers.  Annoying.   Lindsey Graham looked like he didn't feel well or didn't want to be there last time, but really showed up this time.  I still won't vote for him because I already knew he had a personality, but I also know how he actually votes. :-)   Santorum and Petaki are good men and could be President, but they really don't have a chance.  I am always impressed with Bobby Jindal, but I don't think he has a chance either.  I could vote for him.

Late show, I had heard that the moderators were going to try to get the candidates to fight each other.  Good fun TV for CNN, not helpful for me as a person who wants to know who to vote for.  Initially I wanted to throw something at the moderator, who devoted the show to Trump and only asked the other candidates what They thought about Trump.  Pull-eeze!  Trump had heard the others were all coming after him, and he came off as a childish schoolyard bully.  After a while, the Moderator settled down, Trump relaxed as he realized he was getting lots of time and wasn't getting 'picked on', and it got better.  I really wanted to hear more from some of the candidates, and not just what they thought about whatever Trump said, and a few that I KNOW had a lot more to say didn't have the opportunity, which was disappointing, but we did get a pretty good feel for the candidates, I thought.  It didn't change my opinions of any of them, but let me know that there are at least 2 I definitely won't be voting for.  I'm just glad I don't have to vote today!  

And there you have it ~ way more than you could possibly want to know about the Republicans.  LOL!   Well, hey ~~ that's what I have to talk about.  I don't have interesting neighbors like you do.  Ha!   At least it's never boring around your house.    I would think both Chris and Scott would be embarrassed around their neighbors with all the drama they bring, but I'm glad Chris apologized. She clearly wants to keep being friends ~~ and frankly, she NEEDS a friend or two like you and your mom.

My cardologist, Dr Kim, is a 'he' and not a 'she'.  Kelly Youngsoong Kim.  Korean-American, I think.  

I have been absolutely terrified about the "chest cracking" surgery.  I have had three "leaky" valves and the heart murmur from childhood, but I was never concerned until after my cardiac arrest.  Then I became more aware of the possibility, though it didn't seem like a probability. My echo in 2012 showed mild aortic stenosis, and Dr B knew how terrified was about the possibility of that surgery and he told me that might never happen, but that we had to stay on top of it.  Dr Kim made me feel so much better about the possibility of an alternative type of valve replacement, should it become necessary.  I will freak out if even that becomes necessary, but I won't break out in a cold sweat just thinking about it like the other surgery.  I know your mom has handled it so well.  I'm not so sure I would.  The older I get, the longer it takes me to bounce back, and I can hear the tick-tock of that big old clock counting down the time left.  I don't want to spend it 'down'. 

Laughing at the "poor little guy" upstairs.  He sounds like a little beast, but it's fairly obvious how he got that way.  I suspect he doesn't have a prayer to become a success in life, and that is sad.

I love the new Friends Tag.  Thank you so much!

Have a great day!

NOT DOING A BORDER AS I AM GOING TO POST SEVERAL TAGS

FOR YOU TONIGHT.  I HAVE A BUILD UP OF 12, LOL.


DID NOT WATCH THE DEBATES, I HAD HEARD TOO THAT 

THE DONALD WAS GOING TO  BE GANGED UP ON.  WOULD HAVE

LIKED TO HAVE SEEN THAT.  I CAN SEE HIM COMING OFF AS A

WHINY BULLY.  I THINK BACK TO THE WAR BETWEEN HIM AND

ROSY O'DONNEL AND ALL THE NAME CALLING AND INSULTS.

AT WHAT POINT DO ADULTS START ACTING LIKE THAT'S WHAT

THEY ARE, LOL.


WE WATCHED JEFF DUNHAM SPECIAL....I CANNOT HELP IT...I

LOVE ACHMED THE DEAD TERRORIST.  WISH THEY WERE ALL

THAT WAY!!


ALL QUIET ON THE NEIGHBOR FRONT!!  

IT WAS HOT AND HUMID TODAY BUT I SUFFERED FOR MY MOM AS I 

COULD TELL SHE DID NOT WANT TO CLOSE THE DOOR.  HAD SOME 

STORMS ROLL THROUGH THE AREA BUT ALL WE GOT WAS SOME RAIN.  

I CANNOT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME WE HAD A GOOD THUNDER 

BOOMER!  HOPEFULLY THE HUMIDITY DROPS NOW.


MOM DID REALLY WELL COMING BACK FROM THE FIRST HEART

SURGERY, BUT NOT THE 2ND TIME.  TOO MANY ISSUES SPRANG UP.

RESULTING IN THE PACEMAKER AND MORE.  HER AGE WAS A 

FACTOR TOO.  SHE WAS 79 AND TURNED 80 IN THE HOSPITAL.

SHE WILL NOT DO IT AGAIN AND THE DOCTOR SAID THEY DO NOT

LIKE DOING IT A THIRD TIME.  TOO MUCH SCAR TISSUE AND OTHER

ISSUES THAT MAKE IT EVEN RISKIER.


OK, NOW FOR SOME TAGS.









I HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM.

Good Afternoon!  TGIF!

I'm late, and without a good excuse.  Got my shower and dressed first thing, then had breakfast and went through emails and it just got later and later.  There are two garage sales up the street in front of us, and it's fun to people watch and wonder what everyone is buying.  A normal human being could stroll up the street and see what's being sold and visit with the neighbors, but we sure don't need to buy any more stuff.   Oh ~ somebody just bought a bed from Sherri. "He' has the top and "she" is carrying the bottom.  I'm so easily entertained.  LOL.  I really don't know Linda, the woman who lost her husband earlier this year, but she is having a yard sale, too.  Unfortunately the trees are blocking my view of her sale. :-(  (lol)

It's cooler today, high in the low 70s, so we're going to go to the Czech restaurant, and hopefully bringing back carry out for tomorrow (and Sunday??)

I slept for 7 hours last night!  I'd almost forgotten what that felt like!  I may be nearly human all day!  

Someone (Rand Paul?) made a similar comment about The Donald and his calling people names and insulting their appearance.  "Isn't this what we did in Junior High?"   Carly's comeback to the moderator asking her reaction to Donald's "Look at that face" comment was excellent, referencing something he said about 'hearing' Jeb Bush, she said "I think all the women in America heard you.")  Bang!  Then he came back saying "I think she has a beautiful face and is a beautiful woman".  I dunno.  I guess those women who buy into the silly "War on Women" might be flattered or appeased by a patronizing remark like that.  You or I would be flat out offended.  

I saw a couple of clips of Hillary being "warm and spontaneous" on the late night shows ~ LOL.  Oh my gosh, that Laugh! smiley76 She did look pretty, though.

 I hate to admit that I am soooo out of the main stream that I've never watched Jeff Dunham.  Corrina and Shiela in the other group were talking about loving him and how funny he is, but they said that they were disappointed in last night's special. What did you think?  I need to make it a point to watch him sometime.  The concept of dead terrorists delights me under any circumstances.  LOL

OOOH, it's Christmas in September ~ or maybe my Birthday!   Look at all the lovely tags!  I'm picking them up and tucking them safely away as fast as I can!   They are all just lovely!   Thank you!  Thank you!!

Hello my darling sister!  I am ever so happy you had a good nights sleep and hope that it brought you a great day.  You need one of those hoverounds....the scooter.  You could have popped over to both sales to say hello.  You would love that.
Ok, I will admit that Donald Trump has some very good points,
and the really wealthy can get away with not being politically correct.  But when it comes to dealing with foreign nations, you cannot come off as an arrogant bastard and insult them.  He can run a business that way, but not a country.  I pray he does not stand a chance in hell.  No, I take that back, he does stand a chance in HELL!!!  
I think you would both love Jeff Dunham...he is far from PC.
I do not like a couple of his puppets, but I love the old man, Walter and Achmed the dead terrorist..he is a skeleton with a turban on his head.  It was not quite as good as usual, but I think that was because he was on regular TV and not cable where there are not so many restrictions. Achmed always gets mad at the audience and yells.....Silence!  I keeel you! But he actually blew himself up before he even did his suicide bombing.  LOL, I talk like he is real. I do not much care for his green ape character, he can be nasty but he is funny.  I love the little Jalapeno on a stick character.  I think Jeff is brilliant!  Mom got a DVD of his Christmas show from a friend, and we both laughed so hard.
Tomorrow morning I am going to the Lab for fasting blood work.
I am already hungry, I am so pathetic. So I have to go to sleep earlier so I can get up earlier....10am will not cut it. I need to be up by 8 and showered and dressed.  I am such a putzer in the morning...or most of the day for that matter.
The neighbors are still very quiet.  If Chris would not drink, she would be marvelous.  She is very likeable and caring.
Well, let's see what tags we can come up with today.





I hope you like them.
Hugs,
Lou Ann

Good Morning.

I'm up too early again, but I did get a fairly decent night's sleep, so I won't complain.

We had a nice, low key day yesterday and went to dinner at the Czech Restaurant AND brought home carry out!    The Garage sales are on again today.  Maybe I should dig out the binoculars ~ lol.

No major plans for today other than to get the cat's claws cut ~ they are soooo overdue ~ and Mike got some new slacks that need to be shortened.  I used to do that when I could stand in front of the ironing board to turn cut hems and all, but now I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull it off or not.  I'll take a look and see if I can "cheat" somehow.

They are having a "Pugs in the Park" Fundraiser on Sunday and our local news is showing the most adorable Pug.  You just want to scoop her up and cuddle her.

Looks like our TV shows are starting to come back.

Next week: Gotham and Castle and NCIS and Blue Bloods, and of course a lot of others that we don't regularly watch, and a few new things too.  

TV premier calendar 

We Binged through Miss Fisher's Season 3, so now I guess we have to wait another year.  Seems like we waited so long for it, and then ZIP, it was over (not that we won't re-watch it sometime).  I love Binging, then I wish I could wipe out my memory and do it again.

You know, I'm getting the feeling that you really don't like Donald Trump.  ROTFLOL!   I guess I'm not getting too excited, even when some of my favorites start to bubble to the top, because it's still early and I don't think what we see now is what we will see 'then'.  I really think The Donald is peaking out ~ too much, too soon.  Hillary was "inevitable", and now it doesn't seem that she is.  By Primary time, she may be again.  I can't see Trump, with all the childish insults and ego being President.  I do fear that in spite of what he said, if he looses the Primary he may take his marbles (devoted followers) and run as a Third Party, and give the election away.  Right now your side is as scary to me as Trump so I don't want to see that happen.  I would be thrilled with several of the candidates should they be the Chosen One, but I fear that may not happen.   It's gonna be a loooong time till the real election.  Sigh.

You've convinced me.  I NEED to check out a YouTube for Jeff Dunham!  

Good luck on your labs ~~ both on surviving with out breakfast, and especially with the results.  I hope they are better than you fear they might be!   Then reward yourself with a nice lunch, and bring something good home for dinner, too!

I've had that feeling from what you've said, that Chris would be nice if she got on top of the anger issues and drinking.   I hope she can.

Oooh, more beautiful tags!   I love them all!!  Thank you so much!   

Have a fantabulous day and excellent results!

LMFAO, I am imagining your neighbors looking up and seeing you looking back at them with binoculars......hahaha.  Wouldn't you be the talk of the neighborhood. :)  I went to bed around 3:30am and got up at 8am. Showered and waited for Suz to call.  At 9:15 I texted her....Are you up?  She texts back, Of course, since 6:30am.  Then nothing.  So I text again...are you going to take me for my labs.  Then I did not hear from her for 15 min or so and she texts....Leaving my house now.  It was not a good day in the lab.  Young phlebotomist who used a large needle and could get nothing in my arm. Then asked what do they do now.  I said....well they usually use the butterfly needle and if that does not work, they used the top of my hand.  I would regret that statement.  He was way too heavy handed and it hurt like hell, and it continued to hurt the whole time and he needed to fill 4 vials. Turns out he knows Jordan and said when they were in 7th grade Jordan got angry with him and jumped him.  So it seemed that Suz proudly proclaimed well guess where he is now.  Sometimes I wish I was somewhere else.  Will find out the results to labs when I see Denise on Wed. I got a call from the AntiCoag Clinic this afternoon.  I am still up at the top....I am 2-3, last time I was 2.9 and they made no changes.  This time it was 3.1 or .2 something.  Decided to make no changes and recheck in 3 weeks in the office.  She asked me if I could eat a few greens and I said...that may be the problem.  For over a month now I have eaten tomatoes for lunch and for supper and had no greens, more or less.  I did have green beans a couple of times. She suggested broccoli. But we already did this weeks grocery shopping and we have no dark greens in the house.  Oh well.  
No, I do not like the "Donald" but I might love him if he screws up the Republican win....giggle, giggle, giggle.  It is a long ways to go and it will mix up more as time goes by.  It is going to be a long year.  Really long.  Really, really long....  
OMG, Pugs in the Park, how adorable.  Especially the Pug puppies.  They are cute beyond reason.  That reminds me...Leigh's wife Kristi got a new job in an animal shelter...she loves it.  Leigh made her vow not to bring anything home as they have 3 dogs already.  She did, but she did bring home a picture of an adorable kitten and said isn't it cute?  Leigh said no it is not and it stays where it is, lol.  She loves the job and they love her.  A match made in Heaven.  She is so kind and caring it is a great job for her.  Nothing else new.  Will chat at you tomorrow.  
Hugs,

Hello.  Are you having a nice weekend?   Not a lot going on here this weekend.  We did get claws cut at least.  Boy, were we overdue! 

I'm sorry you had such a bad time at the lab.  That's why I'm so grateful to be able to do the finger sticks from home for my INR.  Of course that doesn't help for full blood work, but going through that every month, and sometimes having three phlobotomists try to get blood out of this turnip ~ shudder.  Twice I had "regulars" who were wonderful and never had a problem getting blood from me, but of course you aren't supposed to ask for someone by name when you go in.  I did and was more than happy to accept the glares of the others.  Many others were good, sometimes, but Katie and (I forget her name, but she was Miami Indian like my online friend Sue (Boop), were consistent and I didn't hate going for my blood tests when they were there.  I ramble.  I just do know what you were dealing with, and I HATE having them take blood from my hands. OUCH!

Your friendly Phlebotomist was probably delighted to hear where Jordan is now ~ and yes,  I feel your embarrassment.  Apparently Suz does not ~ lol.

Oh, you're so MEAN, liking The Donald for all the wrong reasons!   lol.  I really am shocked by how many are not only willing to accept a Socialist as President, but even enthused.  Shaking my head.  As you know, I am now and will ever be

and I've got the sweatshirt to prove it!  Of course I dare not wear it in our current neighborhood.  More than half the residents are former teachers or school administrators, and it appears that everyone associated with the school system IS a Socialist and determined to churn out an army of little socialists.  It is beyond mind blowing ~ and terrifying ~ to me. 
smiley53

How kewl that Kristi got the purrrfect job for her ~ and for the animals she cares for!   When I first retired I thought about taking a volunteer position with our local Humane Society, but I realized that leaving all the critters there, and especially when I knew time was running out for them (they were NOT a no-kill shelter) would be too hard.    When we moved here, I wanted to take part time jobs at the Mystery Book store in Bolder AND at our favorite Indian Art store.  Mike wouldn't 'let' me.  He said we couldn't afford it.  LOL   I suspect he wasn't wrong.  I'd make $10 and spend $200.  LOL

Well my MEAN little Sister, I guess you are forgiven, cuz I love my Autumn tag.  Thank you. 

Have a great day!

Hello my dear 

It's a brand new week, and it's going to be a great day for both of us.  OK?  I have to make some phone calls and try to get some work lined up, but nothing much more exciting.

Some of the new TV shows return tonight and yesterday afternoon and last night we watched the three episodes of "Arthur and George" on PBS Masterpiece.   I liked it.  I'd like more, but I believe that was all there is to be.

We've also been watching Season Three of the Dr Blake Mysteries (Australian) and finished that yesterday, too.  We both really like it, but it's hard to find it consistently available.   I found some episodes on YouTube but they tend to be poor quality, so we went ahead and bought our own DVDs.  They are only available in the English format (can't remember what you call it, a specific zone) and you need a special player to play those.   Fortunately for me, Mike has one.  I'll keep an eye out for it to be shown in a more reasonable way (Acorn or Amazon or something) because I think you'd really enjoy it.  Dr Blake is a Police Surgeon in Australia in the 50s.  Good supporting cast.

I saw a blurb that Viola Davis won the Emmy for Dramatic Actress.   She is sooo talented and I loved her on the early Jesse Stone movies, but I really didn't like 'How to commit a murder' (or whatever the name is).   I really tried to like it, but I just couldn't and I didn't like her IN it.  That's probably why she won, because it's such a strange character she is playing.  I didn't watch the show or see who else won, but as I said, I probably didn't know any of them OR the shows they were in.   If 'They' don't want people over the age of 54 and cater only to those younger, then I will accommodate them by not watching their shows ~~~ or spending my money with their advertisers.  So there!

And on I ramble ~~~ lol

How completely miserable!  Your toothache sounds awful.  Now I'm trying to remember the dental work you had done and needed to have done, and as usual, I'm fuzzy.  Is this from one of the old trouble spots, or something new?  I will DEFINITELY say a prayer that it goes away, and stays away until you can afford and want to deal with it.  I hope you were able to get some sleep last night.    Sending positive thoughts and prayers.

I had to come back and post my sympathy.  I know how upset you must be at the news that Scott Walker is dropping out of the Presidential race.

I just want to say "There, there."   Chin up.
