AUGUST 
Look! the round-cheeked moon floats high,
In the glowing August sky,
Quenching all her neighbor stars,
Save the steady flame of Mars.
White as silver shines the sea,
Far-off sails like phantoms be,
Gliding o'er that lake of light,
Vanishing in nether night.
Heavy hangs the tasseled corn,
Sighing for the cordial morn;
But the marshy-meadows bare,
Love this spectral-lighted air,
Drink the dews and lift their song,
Chirp of crickets all night long;
Earth and sea enchanted lie
'Neath that moon-usurped sky.

Everything is working again.  The hover shading and the icons.  I am a happy camper.  This is getting easier and easier to do now that I am familiar with everything.  Not trial and error like when I started.
Do you think the background is too busy? I was a bit worried about that.
I knew you were talking about Barb (Noni2) our Canada resident. That is who I was talking about too, not Bubs. You really had me confused. She and I laughed as I had killed her spider by flipping it upside down and putting crosses in it's eyes.  We were fierce competitors in the races, lol.  I remember adding wigs and bows to the spiders.  I remember being so excited about coming in to see what new tag was being offered.  I also remember making a Betty Boop tag and being told off by one of the members as she is a no-no.  But others in the group came to my defense.  I almost left, but they rallied around me.  I cannot remember who it was but she was not around much after that.  Kathy brought me into the group.  She and I were both in a group owned by Lisa and she was teaching us how to use PSP.  But just the simple stuff.  No plugins or stuff like that.  I loved the group and jumped right in.  So many memories and so many forgotten. So many changes over the years.  I do not really know why people just drop and let you wonder and worry.  If you miss a day (so rarely happens) I would be fine, but if you missed 2 days in a row, I would be worried and probably calling you, lol.  I know I am going to worry through your surgery.  Though I do not know why, all is going to be just fine, but I am a worry wart by nature, lol.  
I love your hair, it is really cute and will be easy for you.  With your arm out of commission, easy is the goal.  When is the surgery?  
Well, that's it for me tonight.  Chat with you tomorrow which is the first of our days this month. It is Girlfriends Day.  
Hugs my Sisterfriend.

Hello

It's Saturday.  What's on the docket for today?  Not much here.   

Mike has found a Film Noir marathon on TCM so he's happy.  Black Widow from 1954 right now with Gene Tierney. Van Heflin, Ginger Rogers, George Raft and a host of others.  Tomorrow night, the new Gourmet Detective is on Hallmark Mysteries & Murders so we're going to rewatch the first one tonight.

Our AC has been keeping things nice and cool in our 90 degree weather, but it's been quite noisy so we're having the guy come back out to look at it this morning.  So far we haven't heard from him.  I hope he comes within the time frame.   Ah!  We just got a call and he is on his way.  Yay! 

AND, he just left and didn't find anything, and of course it stopped making the noise yesterday!  Figures.   I hope it doesn't start up again.

Just look at your wonderful new Welcome to August!  Awesome!   I love evrything!

I blush to admit that I didn't even get my new skin up, much less trying to do the Wecome page.   I just added my current message onto the July thread!   Terrible.  That's the first time that has happened, and now I'd better bust tail to get something up.  Maybe I'll just steal yours!   (Just kidding.  Mine will be pretty mousy this time I fear though.  Everything has gotten away from me.)   I AM going to steal your adorable border to go with my adorable new Tag!   Thank so much!

LOL ~ Confusing and Confusing-er.  I must have missed the spider flip conversation you and Barb had.

Well, I'd love to chat but I don't have anything interesting to share and I hope I can get SOMETHING up before Shiela or Corrina come into the other group.  Doubtful, but I'll try.

Later, my lovely! 

Love the skin, August Page and my great tag!

First off, let me say that you can use any of my skins or pages any time you want.  I would be honored. Tomorrow is Sisters Day. So I made you a tag and not sure if I love it or hate it.  You will have to decide, lol.  

 Maybe I should add drop shadow to the outside of the border? You cannot tell where it is.  I made the background of words that described you.  But so many are covered up by the tube.
The AC thing sounds familiar.  One day moms AC was making a weird noise so I turned it off. Turned it on again and was still doing it so turned it off again.  The next day I turned it on and it was fine.  You just never know.
It has been hot last couple days but not humid.  But tomorrow is supposed to be 85 and humid so I will be putting the AC on as soon as I get up.  Mom and all are headed to Portage for the Weider/Robinson Reunion. So I will have the day to myself  I will make the most of it, lol.
Mom's birthday is the 5th and I did not get anything because I gave her puzzles earlier.  But now I am thinking that maybe was Mother's Day or maybe both, it was a huge box of puzzles.  But her shoulder hurts so much since the fall at Leigh's that she has not hardly worked on one.  She is doing the exercises the therapist has given her to do.  She is never comfortable these days.  I hope the exercises do the trick so she does not hurt all the time.  She has been reluctant to use the tylenol with codeine since she returned home, because Diane made a remark about mom popping them like candy.  I am not sure if she was kidding or not.  She has ways of saying things like they are funny but she means them.  I told mom to hell with what she said, that taking a couple a day is not a big deal. But she does not want to now since her prescription is nearly gone.  So I had mine refilled and told her she was more than welcome to them.  I have not used any in ages.
Well, time to bid you adieu.
Hugs for my big sister,

Morning. Happy Sister's Day!

Oooh, I love the sister's tag! I'm not sure very many of those words fit me, but they do fit my little sister Lou Ann. :-)

It's the start of a brand new week, and I hope it's going to be a good one.   Last night we called in a Carry Out order to Carabas Restaurant.  It's about a 20 minute drive and you just tell them the make and model and color of your car and they bring your order right out to you.  So, we got our order and paid for it and drove home ~~ where we discovered that we had the wrong order!  It would be close to an hour to drive back and pick up the right order and drive back home, so we opted to stay with 'their' order.  Ok, but not what we had wanted.  Mike called to let them know, and apparently another red MKZ had a pick up order at the exact same time.  Probably never happen again, and you can't really blame the restaurant, but still a bit upsetting.  The Manager said the next time we call for carry out to let them know that "Patrick" had authorized two free meals, and we got FIVE dinners ~ just not the dinners or accompaniments we wanted.  We actually gor FIVE Salads!  Normally, I wouldn't hate that, but I go for my pre-op blood test on Tuesday, so I fear I'll have to pass on the salads, or at least most of 'em. Later, when I checked my phone I found the waitress had called and left a message letting us know what had happened.  Phone was in my purse and I didn't hear it ring, so we missed the call.  If we'd gotten it before we got home, we could have turned around.  Kind of funny now.  Not so much last night.    Anyway, we have lots of leftovers. 

I'm going to color my hair this morning.  I don't have any styling gel so I can't do it the 'new' way, but at least it will be colored.  I made Mike turn the heat on so when I'm sitting in my 'Hair Color Clothes' I won't freeze to death.  He's probably fainting from the heat. 

And so goes my world.  How's yours?

Hmmm. Do you think Joe Biden will run?  News seems to be thinking he might.  Trump vs Biden.  Now that would be something to see ~ or to listen to the sound bites.  Ha!

Mike was more concerned about the noise in the AC being something that would damage the AC, but apparently everything looked fine, and we haven't heard the noise in several days, so hopefully all is well.

Is the Reunion only a one day affair?  I'm sorry you can't go and be a part of it, but I more than understand that with physical issues, things that would have been fun before just aren't, and in fact often quite the opposite of "fun".  Pump up the AC and enjoy your day at home!

Well, I'd best go and start my hair so Mike can turn the heat down before he melts ~ lol.

Hiya Dorothy

Hot as hell and more humid. Made it to 90. Then about 5:30 all hell broke loose. Thunder, torrential rain and hail.  The ground was white with it. Mom had walked in about 5 min. before this happened.  Glad she was safe and sound inside.  It was a few degrees hotter in Portage.  I would not have been able to handle it since they hold it at the fairgrounds and there is no AC in those buildings.  Sounds like they all had a good time. 

I spent the day catching up on my shows...all caught up now on Criminal Minds, Rizzoli and Isles and on NCIS. It feels good to get caught up on them.  So awful for Jane, do you think it will turn into a story, like someone set the fire in retaliation?? Ha!  You would think this was real.

Wow, that is awful about your food. What are the chances with the vehicles?? To weird.  But all salads? Maybe your food cost more than theirs did and maybe they were all vegetarians, lol. That is a long trip for carryout. Hard to keep the food warm that long. I am glad you get 2 free meals out of it. That is the least they could do. They should include a name they ask for when they get to your car, then this would not happen.

One last tag I forgot to give you.  A Happy Birthday tag.

You could have taken your clothes off for coloring your hair and that would have saved messing around with the temperature settings, lol.  Since I was seen nude today you might as well be too, LMAOPMP.

Have a Marvelous Monday

Hugs,

Morning My Friend

I got a couple of updates from Dr Barb that I've added to that link.  I honestly don't know how she does it, but God bless her!

I'm glad your mom made it in before the hail hit!  I hate hail to pieces!  So often so damaging.    I'm also glad you didn't go.  I can imagine how nice it would have been in that heat and humidity!  Good to get all caught up on the shows.   I was amazed that Jane handled the loss of her condo with only 'disappointment'.  I'd have been hysterical!   Wonder where that will lead, if anywhere. 

Last night We watched the second Gourmet Detective movie on HMM.  Very light weight, but fun.  We saved Last Tango in Hallifax to watch tonight, after Major Crimes.  

I AM darn near nude when I put my hair color in.  I have an old, stained set of PJs that I wear so I won't soil anything good ~ and that's why there is an issue with the temperature.  While I wait for the color to take, I sit in the bedroom (so nobody sees me!) and it gets really cold!  Mike has to turn the heat up to keep me from freezing before I am able to hit the shower.  Yesterday after I got my color in I just blew my hair dry without any mousse or goo, and it turned out looking pretty good.  Not great, but it's so short it looked not bad without curling.  Temporary wash and wear hair!  Not exactly 'coiffed' but whatever works, right?

You asked about our dinners from Carabbas.  We had ordered three dinners, which we planned to split for three nights.  Two were chicken dishes and the third a steak Marsala.  We ordered salad for me with one of them (I could eat it for at least two days, maybe more) and soup with the other two dinners for Mike.  The sides were pasta, and Mike would have had most of it while I tried to mostly avoid the carbs.  He also ordered a Tiramasu, which I'm sure had no carbs.   

What we got was one of the same Chicken dishes (Chicken Bryan), a Chicken Parmesan, Pork chops Marsala, Lasagna and a child's portion of spaghetti.  Each dinner came with a salad.   Mike had the spaghetti for lunch and also a salad.  He had the lasagna one night and half the chicken Parmesan in a sandwich last night.  I had the Chicken Bryan over the two nights and we will share the pork chops tonight.  I am going to wait until tomorrow night and if one of the salads still looks good have that. I don't want to have it immediately before a blood test.  Their dinner for five (or four and a half) cost about $4 more than ours for three, so no "issue" there.  They obviously caught the problem before "Liz" took hers home so while she must have been late getting it, she must have gotten the right order.   

 I may post tonight or otherwise I will be late tomorrow because I have the appointment for pre-op blood tests and xrays and of course a ton of paperwork in the morning.  

I LOVE my new Birthday Tag!  It's adorable.  Thank you!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Hola Senora Dorotea.
I cannot believe you just slipped over the fact that I was seen naked  yesterday.  I did not tell the story as I wanted you to think...What the hell?  So, since you do not seem interested in the story, I will save it for another day. 
 

Today is our 3rd day....Friendship Day!  This month
 has a lot of good vibe days.  You are a dear friend and a sister of my heart.  I love and appreciate you.

Sounds to me like you did pretty well in the dinner exchange, even if it was not what you were wanting.  When you are all ready for certain food, anything makes a poor substitute.  But you can get your meals again with your freebies.  All's well that ends well.  I have had tiramisu but do not care for it.  Though who knows how they made it.  Gary and Steve made it for one of our get togethers.

Happy to hear that the haircut works for you even without the gel.

Wednesday I see my pulmonologist, Dr. Hatahet.  I forgot all about needing to get my sb card out of my Cpap to have it read.  I will have to do it tomorrow.
Good luck with your blood tests tomorrow, my dear
wonderful friend.

Hugs,

I'm here ~ sort of. Totally whumped, which is becoming my usual state, but today's testing is over and if I don't get any calls saying something is wrong, I'm good to go until next Tuesday's surgery.

I got a text from my Niece Mary Ann when I was still in bed.  I haven't told you, but she is facing some more surgery later this month, a whole lot more serious than my little proceedure.  I'll share about that later, and beg for prayers for her, but today she told me that her mom, my brother's widow Alice  who moved out to Wisconsin and lives in a cottage on Mary Ann's property, is in ICU.  She went in for an angioplasty yesterday.  One of her arteries was completely blocked and she had two stints put in.  In the process she had two small arteries bleeding and the Dr thought they would stop on their own.  They didn't and he had to put in a coiled wire to stop them.  In the meantime she was bleeding in her chest cavity so they had to put a drain in her chest.  She will be in ICU for a few days.  I am Alice's least favorite person so I'm not sure what I can do except pray, and ask you to pray for her too.  She's I think 8 years older than I.

My other niece, Catherine, moved out there too, to a town right next to Butternut where Mary Ann lives, but she is coming back to Colo for an appointment with her Pain Clinic, so I don't know if she is there with her mom or not right now.

Ok,  Me.   Got to the Dr's office at 10 and waited for over 10 minutes for "Dawn" to come out and get me.  Very nice lady, but she gives my Perodontist's tech, (remember Motor Mouth Marsha?) a run for her money.  Barely stopped to take a breath!  I think everything she told me is in the packet she gave me, so hopefully everything I need to know, I will.   She walked me over to the Hospital and gave me papers to fill in.  Truly, if I had gone there to begin with, I could have been done 45 minutes sooner.  lol.   By then I was having a bit of trouble, and I didn't know how much more walking was involved, so a lovely volunteer took me to the lab in a wheel chair for my blood test and nose swab.  Apparently they catch all sorts of Staff and (Meers?) infections with the nose swab and can treat them before surgery, so this is required for any sort of implant.  I told the gal taking my blood that I had one vein in my entire body and it was a Butterfly Vein.  Instead of dismissing me, she believed me, got the butterfly needle out right away and got three vials with ease.  Lovely!
Then on to xray, and a fair amount of waiting time.  Lovely young woman brought me back and took my pictures then when everything was good and I was dressed, she hustled me down to the first floor of the hospital and toward the door.  By then I was really loosing it so I begged to sit for a minute and we said our goodbyes, and I called Mike so he could come and pick me up at the front door.  
Other than getting so tired it was ridiculous, Ez_Pz, and all done.  

Mike has a free birthday burger from Red Robin, so we are going there for an early dinner tonight.  In the meantime, I'm not moving!  

Oh, and my hair!   I didn't blow it dry, but let it dry on it's own this morning, and then worked some of the dry shampoo in to give it a bit of body, and it doesn't look half bad!

That's my world, and welcome to it. 

My last INR test was good ~ 2.6 ~ I forgot to ask if they were testing for that today, but I'll bet they were, and I'm to retest with my finger stick on Monday to be sure.   Not sure what they would do if it's 8.6 or 0.4 the day before surgery. Ha!


How did I miss that you were caught NEKKED?   I focused on my being nekked and on assuring you that I was wearing old discolored PJs and glazed right over your nakedness.   So TELL ALL!

I can't believe you don't love Tiramisu!  It is to die for!  Gary and Steve must have screwed it up ~ lol

If we don't talk before ~~ good luck with your meeting with your pulmonologist tomorrow.
smiley16
I am well and truly whumped ~ silly as that sounds and IS, so I'm going to rest for a bit before we go for dinner.  

Hope you are having a great day!

Good Morning

I slept well but woke up way too early again.  Ah, well.  Nothing really planned for today, so if I need to nap, I'll nap.  Right now, I feel great.

I do have a Vets Pick up scheduled for tomorrow, so I need to finish getting that ready.  I have one box with 12 beautiful pair of slacks and genes all ready to go.  Hafta admit, I'm letting them go with a small tug or two.  I can't wear them and someone else could so it's the right thing to do, but while the Talbot's slacks I'm wearing now are really nice and good quality, the ones I'm letting go are better.  They are mostly Elizabeth (the Liz Claiborn Fat Lady shop) and the fabric and cut were excellent.   There are also some very nice Casual Woman, less expensive but really nice ones.  Both shops have gone out of business so there is no replacing them.  Sad.  BUT ~ the time has come, so they will go.  I need to work on getting a box of tops and blouses ready today.  We're also giving them our old Hoover vaccum, which works perfectly but we now have the new Shark so we don't need it.  We barely use one, much less two! Ha!

I think we are also going to schedule a Grocery Delivery for tomorrow, so we need to work on that.  Nothing too exciting, but I can do with a little less excitement right now. ;-)

The First Republican Debate (debates) has been announced.  There will be one for the candidates who didn't score in the top 10 at 5 PM on Fox tomorrow night, and the one for the top ten is I believe at 7.  I'll be there for both.  There are some in the "second tier" that I find more interesting than those in the top 10.  I think the first one will be interesting.  I just hope they don't forget Regan's 11th commandment.  I can't really consider Trump a serious contender, but he has definitely brought a more interesting edge to the contest.  They are going to have to move out of the carefully scripted and controlled presentations, though of course anything they say now can be held against them in the real election.  The Vultures will be hovering, waiting to get a sound bite to run with.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could just get the straight scoop without all the controlled and prepared crap?  On BOTH sides?  sigh.

Have a great one!

Sorry about not making it in yesterday...I never even got on my computer.  I spent the morning paying bills and balancing my checkbook.  So that is all done for another month.
So my being nekked.  Sunday I did not take my shower when I got up, but decided to take it in the afternoon.
I forgot to lock the front door!!!  So I was back in my room, sitting on a towel on my recliner.  My room door was open because it is the AC in my room that cools the place so I need to leave it open.  Nekked as a jay bird...when I here someone calling out....what the hell?  My whole family was at the reunion.  I thought it sounded like Suz and thought, well, then Jerry might be with here so I yelled do not come in here.  Then I heard this is Debbie (upper back apt.) and saying something else. I said I can't hear you and the next thing I know she is at my door.....OMG it's the BLOB!!
Well, she jumped back and said she was putting her rent check on the shelf by the door.  OK, since when do you walk into someone's house without permission?  The door was closed!  I was embarrassed and then angry.  But what good does it do?  She is not the first person to see me nekked and she will probably not the last.  
I will keep Alice in my prayers and include Mary Ann and all the family.  I am sure she is where she needs to be but this sort of thing is so scary and you cannot help but be anxious.  I hope there is only good news in the forecast.
Wow, they really put you through the ringer.  Sure had to have a lot done.  Should have gotten you a WC and used it to take you to everything instead of exhausting you...but did the wheel squeak?  Probably not!
I am glad you found a way to make you hair presentable to the rest of the world. heaven help us all if a hair was out of place.  I used to be just like you.  When we were on vacation together Nan said she got sick of me asking if my hair was alright, or my clothes or whatever, lol.  I am really not that way much at all anymore.  
I did not know that Liz Claiborne and Talbot's had gone out of business.  So many great places are gone.  Good for you donating to the Vets.  I wish they had something like that around here.  I would rather give to them than to anyone else.  Ours always goes to St. Vincent de Pauls.  
I would love to watch that debate but my mother would never go for it. She rarely lets me watch the President.  I see Walker made the cut for the debate.  I would love to hear what that conniving snake has to say.  I pray that he never makes it as far as being the Republican nominee. I usually see good things in all candidates, but it is very hard for me to come up with any redeeming qualities in this man.  I would have to be "mad" at you for a long time if you voted for him, lol.  I also think it is very scary that Trump is in the lead in the poles.  I think everyone is thinking that we really need something different and to hell with political correctness.  But he really should be careful about offending other countries.  He can offend illegal aliens all he wants, but we need some of these other countries on out side to survive.  
So, yesterday afternoon, Nan came in and we went out to Fauska's.  We watched one episode of Mr. Selfridge.  Then decided to do out to eat at a local restaurant on the lake.....It is referred to as the dirty restaurant.  It's name is Schmitty's Oar House, but everyone says The Whore House, lol.  I got a Patty Melt (good, but my meat was a bit overcooked) and Onion Petals with a horseradish sauce they make themselves that is delish!!  I brought half of it home.  Then back to Fauska's and 3 more episodes of Mr. Selfridge.  It is soooooo good.  Nan now says she likes it more than she likes Downton Abbey.  We have 2 episodes left for this 3rd season.  A regular one and the last one is a 2 hours episode.  So we will watch both of them next time.  It was a lovely, peaceful evening.  But when I got home I was so tired and should have gone to bed, but instead I was trying to do some things on my iPad and kept falling asleep.  Went to bed without ever going on my lappy and then could not sleep.  Laid there awake for hours.  I feel asleep sometime after 3 am and woke up at 7ish.  Tried going back to sleep as had my alarm set to 9 so that I would be up and ready for Louann picking me up at a little after 11.  Takes me so long to get up, get dressed.  Do blood sugars and take insulin, take pills, eat breakfast bar while readings paper and then doing inhalers and neb treatment.  Also had to clean up around my chair and wash the bathroom floor.  So it is moms birthday and the sisters worked out the plan that I would tell mom not to eat lunch and that Louann and I would pick it up on the way back from my appt.  I was to text my sisters when we were leaving and we would all meet at our place and we would order Jimmy Johns for all.  Louann was joining us as she was cutting moms hair.  My appt. went well and he was mostly concerned with the coming months...Sept-Feb being the most dangerous time for COPDers.  He suggests that I get a flu shot in Sept and again in Dec. as they are only good for 3 months and I am very susceptible to any respiratory infections.  Other instructions were to stay away from people, lol.  No large gatherings. no grocery stores when they are busy, no movie theaters, no church, etc.  If I am not around others I am not likely to get sick.  I said luckily I do not do many of those things.  It was not till after I left that I realized that he never mentioned my Cpap results and if all was well there.  So I will send an email tomorrow.  So then we headed down to the lab and checked in.  So at that time I texted my sisters and said *waiting at lab to have draw so should be soon.  Then had draw and out we go.  While waiting for Louann to get the car I texted them again and said leaving now.  When we got home all were there.  Joanne and Suz were both off of work.  Joanne because our Josh's graduation party is Sat. and Suz because hubby is on vacation.  Though his boss has had a house fire and he has to go back to work tomorrow but so does Suz.  Diane teaches so she is off work.  Jason, Josh's brother came too.  So we ordered from Jimmy John's.  Meanwhile, Kirstie called Louann and hearing what was going on she said she would bring Liam over.  Mom loved it and he was such a winner with everyone.  He went around getting bites of sandwiches from everyone.  So cute.  He would open his mouth and wait for us to put some food in his mouth.  He loved the turkey from our sandwiches.  He found moms solar bobblers and was playing with them.  Then we had cupcakes and ice cream.  Liam was in seventh heaven.  When we sang Happy Birthday, when we got done he yelled "Yay" and clapped and everyone loved it and then they kept getting him to do it.  Then when they left he was blowing kisses...he opens his mouth wide, puts his palm to his mouth, then throws it and yells....MUH!  OMG, it was so cute and he had to do it for everyone...he loves the limelight.  It was the highlight of moms day.  After all were gone Josh came on his lunch break and brought mom flowers, you saw them on facebook.  Then later, Brent called her from work to wish her HB and chat.  Jordan cannot call her.  Leigh and family called and sang to her and she talked with each one of them.  So she only did not hear from Travis.  We know Suz reminded him because we thought it was him calling but it was Jerry and he said he heard someone reminding someone to call (Suz to Trav) and figured be better call so he did not get on moms Shit List, lol.
Travis never called.  Maybe he wrote something on FB, I will have to check.  Diane took mom to Olive Garden in Oshkosh for supper...I ate my left overs from Schmitty's and JJ's and I was stuffed.  I probably should have made it 2 meals.  But I was a pig.  Mom brought her dessert home and shared it with me.  It was a dark chocolate crust with raspberry and vanilla cheesecake.  It was wonderful, but I like it better than mom did as she does not like dark chocolate all the much.  So it was a very busy 2 days and I am seriously tired.  Hoping I can go to bed early and sleep. Keeping fingers crossed. This book is now done.  The End
Hugs,

Hello!

I did it again.  I've been awake since a little after 3.  Finally just gave up and got up.  Benedryl tonight!  Now it appears that Aimoo isn't quite awake yet ~ boy are things slow.

I added three more pair of slacks for a total of 15, six blouses/tops, a skort, a suit jacket, and two bags of socks to my Vet's Donation boxes.  They and the vacuum cleaner are waiting on the porch to be picked up.  It's trash pick up day, too, so that too is awaiting pickup.

The bad thing is after getting two boxes filled with clothes out of my closet, it's still somewhat crowded.  I envisioned it looking positively empty!  I have bought more clothes lately and I've bought a lot of really nice hangers.  I have a chest of drawers in the middle of my side of the closet, and the extra hangers are stuffed on the rack above it.  We haven't used wire hangers for years, but we have a whole lot of cheap plastic ones, and I'd like to see them all gone, too.   

I also ordered some shoulder covers, so at some point I should have most 'tops' on nice hangers and with shoulder covers over them ~ you would not believe how dusty things get in our closet.  In the whole house really.  I don't understand it.  The house is well made, and the wind doesn't whistle through, but a day after Shauna cleans the black glass kitchen table looks dusty, and if I didn't wipe it down you could probably write your initials on it by the time she comes back.  We have an air filter, we keep things relatively clean, and still we live in the dust bowl!   

OhMyGosh, I can just imagine how you felt with Debbie just walking in on you!  YOU'RE embarrassed, and SHE is the one who did wrong!   Isn't that always the way.  I can't imagine just walking into someone else's home like that.  Of course as you know, I believe the "Make My Day" laws were written for people who drop in on you unexpectedly ~ even if they knock.  LOL I think it should be perfectly permissible to shoot them. 

I haven't heard how Alice is doing.  I hope she is recovering well, and with the stints is stronger and feels better than she has in a long time.   Mary Ann doesn't need any more stress or grief in her life right now, and I really do hope Alice lives long and prospers.

Oh, no ~ I confused you.  The Liz Claiborn Fat Lady shop, Elizabeth, went out of business and so did Casual Woman.  I buy most of my things online from Talbots these days, because (1) it's really too hard to shop, as I know you understand, and I have so much trouble finding things to fit me.  At my weight I'm apparently supposed to be 9'8", and I'm not.  I'm 5'2".  The department stores carry clothes to fit the majority of people, and that's not me.  At Talbots, I can order petite ankle pants, and they fit just right ~~ not as ankle pants, but as regular pants on me.  Ha.   Oh, and (2), they send me really great 60-70% off sales on line quite often, so they are affordable.   Of course it's nicer to go and browse all the stores and find a great variety of things, but I really don't need a great variety since I'm not working and don't do a whole heck of a lot.  This works well for me. 

Oh, I have to tell you about Scott Walker.  I seem to be on every Conservative "list" there is.  If you follow one or (God forbid) donate to one, they sell your name ~ like selling slaves ~ to everyone else on the planet.  Infuriating, because I really do want some newsletters and I can unsubscribe from those that come unsolicitated, but the phone calls!  They don't stop, either to survey you or ask for a donation.  We never answer any that we don't recognize on Caller ID, but every once in a while I will answer one, with the thought of telling them to remove my number from their list.  Soooo a few days ago I got one marked "Privileged Caller", and it didn't ring normally, but very insistently ~ ring,ring,ring.  I don't know how they do that, but your instinct is to think it's an emergency and want to pick it up.  Normally we don't, but that night I did and it was a stupid, arrogant kid telling me about Scott Walker.  How did I know he was a stupid, arrogant kid?  Among other things, when he said can we put you down for a $150 donation right now? (Yeah. Sure you can.  LOL) I said that I wasn't making any donations to anyone until after the debate ~ and he didn't know when the debate was.  I'm sure most normal people don't, but he was soliciting for Walker!  He pushed on, and I said that I never donate over the phone and . . .    He interrupted me and started to push on so I said "I never do anything over the phone"   His response?   "You never do anything over the phone?   Why do you have a phone then?"

I'm serious!  I told him that was really smart and that he certainly wouldn't make any friends for Walker that way.  He started responding that he wasn't trying to make friends for Walker (so he's succeeding!) and that .... At which point I interrupted him and said in my sternest voice "You may have just lost Walker my vote!"  He started to interrupt I'm sure to put me down for not voting for Walker because of what he said, and I again interrupted him and said "Take my number off of your list and never call me again!" and hung up.  It may have worked.  So far we haven't had any more of those "Privileged Calls".  By the time I shared it all with Mike we were laughing hysterically.  What an idiot ~~ Clearly not a real "Walker volunteer" but one of those folks hired off the street to fund raise.  If Walker has many more of those, he's gonna be in deep doo-doo.  LOL

There are several of the candidates that I think could make an excellent president and maybe even undo some of the damage our current president has done (See?  I've already had to forgive you, over and over.  lol)  From my perspective, I don't think we will ever be able to undo all of the damage Obama has inflicted on the country.   I love you anyway  but I have never detested anyone in my life as much as I do that man and the people he surrounds himself with.  Clearly the feeling is mutual.  He just equated the Islamist Extremest who shout "Death to America" with the Republicans!   He has always acted like the half of the American Citizens who don't worship him are more of the enemy than ISIS or any other foreign power who would want to destroy our country.  I suspect if he could send us all to the old Soviet style Gulags, he would.  I think because of how I feel about the Obamas, I can understand your feeling about Walker.  At this point, he isn't my choice or even near my "top tier" candidates if that helps, and I have been influenced by the things you have told me.  I will listen to him, of course, as I will all of them, but I'm really excited about a few of the others and I hope they do well.   I have donated to Carson.  It's hard to believe someone so non-political could win, but he is such a good and decent, intelligent and Godly man that he gives me hope.  So do a couple of others.

I'll be watching the first debate with the second tier candidates at three (our time).  A couple of them interest me more than the "top ten".  Then we'll be watching the main debate at 7 (our time).  I doubt that we'll watch all of the debates, but this first one should prove interesting.  I really can't imagine Trump as the candidate, but clearly he has touched something with folks who are fed up with Political Correctness and allowing Foreign Nationals to overrun the country.    My fear is that he will run as a Third Party candidate and give the election to Hillary.  She well may win anyway, but it shouldn't just be given to her.  

I'm so glad you had such a nice evening out. I love "binge watching" shows like Selfridge.  So much more fun that one a week ~ half the time I can't remember what I saw the week before.  ha.   How funny ~ the Dirty Restaurant!  I thought they didn't keep it clean ~ ha!

Your next day sounded exhausting!  Getting ready then going to appointments then actually having the appointments ~~ ack.  Yours are far worse than mine, and you know how I whine about mine!  ;-)

How neat that everyone was off at the same time for your mom's birthday party, and that you could surprise her!   I saw her picture on Facebook and the lovely flowers.  What a nice day for her!  She must have felt so loved!

What's a Solar Bobbler??  Oh my Lord, does her dessert sound good.  I love dark chocolate and raspberry.  Heaven.

I can see why you are exhausted!  Try to get a bit of rest and maybe get to bed earlier tonight.

I'll tell you if anything or anyone stood out to me at the debates.

Today was a beautiful day. Tomorrow rain is coming and humidity is going way up, but it is only supposed to be about 70 so that will not be bad.  I went through tons of pictures today finding ones of Josh.  Mom did too, but I had to go through and resort those.  It is hard because Josh looked just like Brent as a toddler and if there is nothing in the picture to clue you to the year it is really hard to know which one it is. LOL.  Then I went on the computer in the back room and went through stashed of pics there.  Printed them and some of his FB pics.  We have way too many, they will never all fit on our trifold board.  But I ran out of time to put them on the board.  So I will have to do it tomorrow along with cutting up a ton of vegetables for the party.  Also we are making a broccoli cauliflower salad.  We were making baked beans too but Suz has taken that over for us.  We are going to be extremely busy so I may not be on here tomorrow but I will try.

I really wish I could see the debates, I really would like to hear what they all have to say, but I know my mom would never sit through them.  Life is short and I cannot make her miserable over it.  I do not fight over the shows any more. I just put on what she likes. She has lost too much of her choices in life and she should be able to watch what she wants.  I will do my catching up when alone and accept missing things when I cannot.  I had an argument with her today and I knew I was right and she got so angry with me and then she cried.  Was it worth it....no.  I felt horrible.  So I am just going to let it go from now on...or going to try to anyway.  I will look forward to hearing what you think about the candidates.

I cannot imagine where your dust comes from, since your windows are not open.  But it must come in through you heating air ducts somehow.  That sucks.  But I know what you mean, my bedroom is dustier than the whole house, but it is the powder I use.

OMG, I hope those phone solicitors alienate everyone from Scott Walker.  They hire those stupid companies to do the fundraising for you.  So why would they know anything about Scott Walker...it's just a job.  To solicit money for him without even knowing what you think about him is ridiculous.  For crying out loud, just because you are a republican does not mean you support them all.  If you were to give every Republican running $150 you could go broke, lol.
 
I actually did think the restaurant looked a bit dirty, because under a couple of bar chairs was a glass and a bunch of toothpicks all over the floor.  Bruce said well I am sure they do not clean up till the end of the night.  I said you think whoever dropped or knocked the glass down would have picked it up or maybe the glass was the toothpick holder and it all went on the floor.  But why wouldn't they pick it up?  The rest of the place looked fine.  But it really bothered me.  OCD?

Solar Bobblers is a name I made up.  Mom has this little collection of figurines....2 bunnies, a chick and a turkey.  They have a little solar panel on them and when in the sun their heads bobble and their bodies wobble.  I have no clue what they are actually called.  I will have to take a pic and show them to you. 

It was 3 when I went to bed and close to 3:30 when I got settled in.  I slept till almost 10 am without waking.  I felt good.  But as soon as I would try to relax a bit I would fall asleep.  I need to write and ask how my Cpap results were.

No time to create until Sunday, lol.  Then I will get on the ball.
Hugs,

Hi!  Welcome to the Weekend.

I did it again ~ woke up at 3:15 and wasn't able to get back to sleep.  This is getting O-L-D!   My own fault this time.  I was going to take a Benedryl before bedtime and I didn't.  I have been having dull headaches for three days and I'm sure they have to do with the 3 AM Wake Up calls.    

We just got our Grocery delivery, so now we need to put everything away.  Refrigerator/freezer things are done.

I got an early morning text from Mary Ann, and Alice is home, tired but home.  Thank you for your prayers for her.

So, yesterday, The Debates.  24 Million people watched ~ the highest rated Debate in TV History!

 We watched both the Happy Hour Debate and the Main Event.  I'd love to recap the highlights of each of them but it's too much to remember.  Not many surprises but definitely some good performances turned in.   In the 5 o'clock (3PM here), I thought Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum and Rick Perry were very good, as I had expected them to be, and Carly Fiorina really delivered.   I think everyone had been expecting her to break out, and she did.  I'll bet she's at the table with the Big Boys next time.  She was well served by being at the Happy Hour Debate because she got more time than she would have at the Big Table.  I didn't know what to expect of Pataki but he was really good, too, I thought.

The Night Time Debate, my opinions only of course ~~   Have you ever felt "What were THEY watching?"  when you read a review of something you watched later?  I thought Trump made some excellent points, but mostly I thought he embarrassed himself and looked like a jerk.  Mike used the word Clown.  He can't handle criticism at all ~ almost, but not quite, worse than Obama does.  Obama at least expresses his anger with a bit of cold class.  Trump ~ well Mike's word fits. 

I thought almost everyone did well.  Surprises, sort of, to me were Kasich who was on fire, and Huckabee who was great.  I really like Huckabee and would have voted for him in the Primary in '08 except for his stance on Amnesty.  I watched Kasich when he announced his candidacy and thought he lacked fire or passion.  He has apparently found it.  Both really impressed me.

I expected Cruz to do well, and he did, though he didn't knock it out of the ball park.  Rubio on the other hand was on fire.  Everytime he responded to a question I said "The Kid is GOOD!"  lol.  He really does look young, and that works to his advantage when he comes back with a complete, concise and totally on the mark answer. 

Christie did better than I expected.  Rand Paul seemed sour and out of sorts.  Jeb Bush was safe and had good answers, and didn't really impress.  Scott Walker had some good one liners about Hillary but definitely didn't break out of the pack.   Dr Ben Carson was great, just as I expected he would be.  He had several really great lines.  I really, really like him.

We watched Frank Luntz focus group gathering afterwards and while many if not most came into the Debate being Trump supporters, they left being very disappointed in him.  Then this morning, we kept hearing that Trump won the debate.  Were we watching the same thing?  I know he is a smart man or he wouldn't have achieved what he has, but I thought he sounded really dumb, and petulant.  Hardly Presidential. But that's just me.  I wish you could have watched.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I'm lucky that Mike ~ who is NOT a News Junkie ~ still wanted to watch the Debates and I know he enjoyed both of them.  If he hadn't wanted to, I'm still lucky cuz I'd have gone to our Morning Room and watched there, but it's a lot more fun to watch together and be able to discuss.

You are definitely right about letting your mom see what she wants to see at this point in her life.  I don't want to say things to possibly give unpleasant thoughts, but my friend Adrienne just lost her mom, and Barb as you know is in NH to be with her mom who doesn't have much time left, they feel.  Mary Ann could have lost her mom ~ though of course we shouldn't assume that the oldest or the least healthy will not live long and prosper.  Your mom knows how much she is loved.  I just wish you had a "Morning Room" so sometimes you could sneak away and watch something you'd like that she wouldn't, and then maybe get back together again later and discuss what each of you has watched.

Josh's party is tomorrow night?  I know you have a lot of work to do, but since it's for our Josh, it will be worth it.  Wish I could help.  Broccoli and cauliflower salad, however ~ no,no,no.  Ha!

I thought you'd get a kick out of Scott Walker's idiot 'fund raiser'.  What a Dweeb!   The idea that I would be sending them $150 really was such a joke, but since he wasn't in on it, I was the only one laughing. ;-)

Solar Bobblers ~~ sounds like a perfect name, and no wonder I didn't know it, since it was Your name.   They sound charming.

Have a great day, and if I don't see you tomorrow I'll know you are celebrating Josh!    Happy Birthday sweet boy!

And with it the Late Mrs Butcher arrives!

Last night I discovered that they had put the results of my blood tests and xrays from Tuesday up on the Dr's office "My Chart" system.  A few things I didn't know, and I wanted to be sure they weren't problems.  I doubt Dr Kim will go over them with me because they were done to facilitate the surgery he will do, soooo this morning I dug out my old blood test results and looked up stuff and compared it.  I don't think there are any problems I can't deal with, but I spent more time playing with that when I would normally be coming in to have coffee with you.  Then I pharted around in FaceBook, had breakfast and Mike and I went out to have coffee on the porch.  The day just got away from me, but here I am, ready to visit ~ and remembering that today you are making everything special for Josh's birthday!   I send him a virtual hug ~~ I'd ask you to give him a real one for me, but he'd think we were both nutz.  LOL   Happy Birthday Josh!   Have a lovely day Lou Ann!

Have a happy day, my dear little sister!

I love you muchly.
