Good Afternoon!

Just got home from church! (It's 3:47AM, EST, in this part of the world.) We had a LOOOOONG  annual church meeting after the service. It was long. Really long. Much needed to be discussed. But, it was long. Lots of food was there, though. Ate a lot. Listened a WHOLE lot! Talks a bit. Listened some more. (Almost fell asleep once. Hoped no one noticed.) Good to be home now. Its a very sunny and relatively warm outside now. Might go for a walk. (Need the exercise.)

Gonna come back later and read the posts. In the meanwhile, just wanted to say hello! Hope you're having a nice day today! 🙂

Ted

i'm sitting here watching the snow blow about, its not snowing hard, but the northeast wind is blowing which means we will have drifts, if this continues. But I don't have to work tomorrow, and I have a Subaru that is almost giddy with delight when we get snow. Youngest ds and I went down to the diner for our customary Sunday breaky. The dog thought he wanted to go for a walk, until the wind hit him the face, so we didn't go far. We were supposed to go to a birthday party for dh's aunt 87 yo aunt, but are staying home. Dh isn't feeling great, and didn't really want to go anyway. There are weird dynamics on that side of the family and they try create drama. No thanks. 

That sounds like an interesting play, Tweety. I have read about how celebrities had show marriages, but I suppose ordinary people were forced to put up a facade too. 

Diana, your show sounds fun, too. I had to find Indio on the map. 

Herring, I remember the Virginia Slims commercials, and Lucky Strike, for some weird reason. My parents smoked, but dad gave it up after his heart attack at age 50, and he lived to 89. Mom never did and died of laryngeal cancer at 67. 

Tweety, I don't know if my thermostat even goes to 74, ha, ha. We keep ours at 68 during the day, mostly for the dog. Good to read you are practising good self care. 

Joe, I would love to see Hamilton. Maybe if it comes to Seattle...

Fran, good to read your posts! What part of the east are you in? I know Ted is in New York and BC is in Rhode Island. 

NSIME, that was cool to read the your dh was able to get some respite and then want some for you as well. Sending healing thoughts your way!

Hi Steph! We used to have a little diesel Jetta. It got 50 mpg which worked great for dh when he was a sales rep. And he only put gasoline in it once, 😂. 

I need to go put the sheets in the dryer, ta

dianah,  Did Maria sing "Never Swat a Fly"? Maybe Jim Kweskin will, when herring goes to see him. Such a cute song.

It is supposed to get up to 72 in two days. Freaky to me, because it just portends some more mean winter stuff to come. Oozy is sans sweater because his fur has grown out longer and the temps are warmer. Nannie said he looked naked w/o the sweater, and she's right!

Hubby arrived home a day early; between his having to sleep on a slowly leaking-out-of-air air-mattress, and his dgt's loud, big, energetic dog, he didn't get much sleep (2 hrs?). He also had to walk many blocks up hill to get from where they found to park, to the venue for the graduation ceremony.  So, he said he is tired and hurting, and just wanted to come back to his own bed and the option to sleep as many hours as he needs to w/o disturbance.

Guess I'll get a cup of coffee and go sit outside... may be back later....

No Stars: I think it was Geoff who sang "Never Swat a Fly".  I was almost 20 when I bought my first car, a 1956 Plymouth for $50.00. The second fun place I went was the Ash Grove in Hollywood to hear the Kweskin jug band. I had brought a car full of people. On the way home someone asked me, "What are   Hymenoptera?" (I had just taken invertebrate zoology)

The following summer I went and heard the jug band alone, like I plan to do this Friday. I stayed for two sets! The jug and wash tub bass player, Fritz Richmond said to me, "We will be having a party after the show. You are invited. I went to the room at the Holiday Inn and he answered the door. I said, "I thought this was a paert." He said, "We can have a party with the two of us." I Loudly said, "No!" and almost ran to my  car. I went many more times and he never even looked at me. I was still sad when I heard on NPR news that he had died of cancer. He wore the round "Granny Glasses before John Lennon. I think he started that trend. 

I used to keep a kazoo in my car and could play the Jug Band Anthem "Stealin".

herring, you're probably right about Geoff. It's been a lot of years, like, um,  since maybe 1970-ish. 

"Never swat a flea

He may have a little she

Who he bouncy-wouncy-wouncies

On his knee-ee-ee!"

Fran, nice to see you here!

Our youngest son married a year and a half ago (had moved out long before they got married), and our oldest son moved to his own place about a year ago.

So now it's just dh and I in the house, with the many felines and one little part-Chihuahua, part-Pomeranian pup (who is now 5 yr old).

We are in a gospel band whose current iteration is: Dh plays banjo, I play guitar and sing, a fiddler, K, who also sings, and a man who plays upright bass and also sings.  We do mainly old hymns, the classics from the hymnals as well as traditional gospel music.  Our bass player, E, owns his own recording studio (makes his living doing this).  He is often flown back to Nashville to work on different projects. 

We did drive through many "rivers" of water and mud flowing across the highway we drove to get to the "high desert," as it is called.  Was quite an adventure!

 

Thank you for the update on yourself and your family. I would love to hear you sing. Well, I just may someday

Hello all.

I could not live in a space with the heat turned up to 74 degrees, Tweety.

Even during the recent Polar Vortex, the highest my heat was turned up to was 65 degrees.

It is 67 degrees in the Blue Grass.

The ground is mud, again.

It will rain tomorrow. Oh, yuck.

Work is okay this weekend.

I have one patient, who is just a sad situation. She is 55, with a lovely family, and breast cancer that has invaded her liver and spine.

Her husband is always at her bedside, helping with her care. 

I have another patient, who worked in the foreign service.

And another, who is kind of grumpy, but believes me to be an angel because we bonded over horses.

Turns out he loves horse racing, and he has wanted a pony, since he was a child.

He wanted to see pictures of Biggie and Talli, and asked a ton of questions about them.

He is no longer grumpy to ME!!!!

He told me I earned angel wings when I took in Talli.

I assured him I am as far from an angel as a human being can get!!!

Safe travels to all.

One more night!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi lil Nel, 

My heat is always turned off. The building I live in must have been insulated extra well when it was built back in 1974. I live in a senior citizen apartment building, and my apartment is on the ground floor surrounded by other apartments, and I am satisfied with the temperature in it. I too am used to my environment being cooler.

Hi Nursej22, 

I live in Pennsylvania, where we also experienced the Vortex. Did you experience it where you live?

Hi NSIME, 

What part of the country do you live in? Did you experience the vortex? My son-in-law works for Accuweather, based here in State College, PA. He installs weather systems in TV studios.

Hi there Herring,

I have only been to see two concerts. One starring Kenny Rogers, and the second one starring Dolly Parton. I was also at the 25th anniversary of Woodstock, and I loved it.

Fran, I live in NW Washington State. We did not experience the vortex in the same way that you all on the east side of the country did. However, this week it got pretty cold and windy, which is not unusual this time year. Up until this week, it has been unusually mild.
