Morning

Fairly busy day yesterday, errands in the morning, then the afternoon and evening spent at J's sister's birthday party.  Got home in the evening fairly late.  Had a nice time but was pretty tired, especially after this last week

Today seeing J again, we're going out for brunch and seeing the musical Matilda.  So another fairly busy day

Given how busy things have been I'm thinking about doing something I very rarely do and skipping church this morning.  Easier since the choir won't sing again until June

Supposed to rain later today but for right now it rain free.  Weather has been nice, in the 70s

Good morning-

Work went well yesterday and I got out on time.  I didn't much in the afternoon except sit on the deck and read.  We saw "Rocketman" last night and really enjoyed it.  Today we are going to a Red Sox game.  I'm not a huge baseball fan, but I like the atmosphere of sitting at the ball park for an afternoon.  Plus, I can get a lobstah roll and make my belly happy.

Hope all have a great day!

Good Morning!

Joe, hope you enjoy the day with J.

Steph, that is quite a project.  I hope you guys make lots of money.

Dianah, hope you're enjoying the vacation.

BC, I just saw on the Netflix show "The Chef Show" lobster rolls and found them interesting.  It's not something I ever heard of growing up in the south.  I think places around here sell them because of all the transplants but I don't like lobster so don't pay attention.  Speaking of transplants when the Red Sox play Tampa Bay here, more Red Sox fans show up because of the transplants and the games usually sell out.  It's a bit embarrassing but people stay loyal to their teams from up north.  Same thing happens when the Yankees come to town.

Kept waking up every couple of hours last night and didn't get good sleep.  But was in bed for nearly nine hours.  Not much going on today.  Going to hot yoga later and visiting best friend and help.  He gets his cast off Wednesday and can start weight bearing so he can fend for himself better.  

Have a great day!

Have fun at Fenway Park, BC.

Oh, Stars, what can I say? You are lucky you are not getting the rain that we have been getting; EVERY day!

I hate that circle of life thing, Tweety. 

My nephew at the barn, Knots, may have Potomac Horse Fever, which can be deadly.

He has had small bouts of diarrhea, which can kill horses, as they dehydrate quickly.

As of last night, he was still being treated at the barn; IV antibiotics, ice packs on feet, to prevent founder, and Banamine for belly pain.

His owner is pretty much there 24/7. I brought her rotisserie chicken last night for dinner, and a 10-pound bag of ice, as refrigerator ice maker is slow.

Scary, scary stuff.

I hugged Biggie tight last night.

My friend's daughter FINALLY got herself organized, and is headed to upstate NY.

My friend is looking forward to 12 weeks of peace.

Untreated mental illness is not fun to live with, from what she has told me.

Oh, there is a vaccine for Potomac Horse Fever. Unfortunately, it isn't very good.

Biggie is vaccinated, as is Knots. The thought is, even though the vaccine will not prevent illness, the symptoms will be less severe.

Blood was pulled, but it must be analyzed at Equine Diagnostic Center at UK, which is closed until Monday!

More rain expected today!

Safe travels to all.

Good morning all!

Doing last-minute things and then will lug duffels out to the RV and leave for Lone PIne, first stop in the journey to Grass Valley.  A leisurely trip up, not a mad dash.

Joe, enjoy brunch and Mathilda!

BC, enjoy your lobstah roll and the game.

Lil Nel, hug Biggie and Talli for me too please!  Good you vaccinate them.

Tweety, enjoy your day off.  I didn't sleep well either (not unusual, with trip starting today).  Will survive!

herring, good you found the card!

Have a good day!

It's still morning! Ozzie woke me up around 9 AM. I got dressed and took the dogs out in a very, very light sprinkle, out to the end of the driveway to get the Sunday papers. Nannie gets the local paper...they only publish Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, and contain mostly small town news.I get the 'big city' paper, which ain't as good as it used to be, but has a wider 'world-view' than the town paper.

So, just for a change, instead of my hips/back/knees talking to me, today it is my thumbs and wrists whining, plus a few finger joints. Haven't had THIS for quite some time. Fortunately I  do already have the arthritis gloves (minus fingertips) and wrist/thumb braces to wear over them, so I located them and applied them. Feels better, too, along w/ help of the Arthritis-strength generic Tylenol.( I can't believe the cost of the Tylenol Brand!) I suppose the gypsy-hips and gypsy-wrists made a deal with each other, while I slept, to rotate the pain-camps. Also there may be an effect from the barometric pressure, as there are thunderstorms and flooding rains predicted for the next 3 days.

Joe, is the musical Matilda based on the movie Matilda of a few years ago? And just allow me to say "GASP!", skipping church?!!? You may gasp back at me because I think the last time I attended church was when I accompanied a patient several years ago.

BCg, LOBSTAH ROLLS? I am now craving them. Thanx a bunch.  😣 I will have to see if the Harris-Teeter grocery store carries live ones in a tank. Then I gotta find a large, deep pot in which to, yes, scald them to death. We are also out of real buddah. Eh, it won't be happening today! Hubby has never eaten lobster. If it happens that he doesn't care for it, I will get to eat twice as much! w00t!

Tweety, Lobster rolls are more than 'interesting', they are DEEEELISH! With a side of fried clams WITH bellies attached (ie NOT those gross, too chewy clam strips!). I'm not sure Florida's version of Lobster Rolls or fried clams would be up to the New England Sea Coast's offerings, even if made by 'transplants'. Up here, Floridians that come up for the summer season are referred to as "Florida Bluehairs". S'funny, though Floridians get accused of bad driving, the ones I have observed as really bad drivers, here and in Florida, are from Michigan. That would include our eldest sibling, who has always been a bad driver, and has lived in Kalamazoo for a long, long time.

Nel, I will have to look up Potomac Horse Fever. Hope it isn't catchy! 

herring, glad you found that card; hope you slept better after that.

H'lo to all. I have to run over to the Grocery Store. Hubby would do it, but his left knee is a lot more painful than my hands. He needs to get it taken care of, AND he needs to lose about 20-30 lbs as well. If he would go back to doing his diabetic diet, that would help a LOT! Time for a serious talk with that feller !

Ballgame is on at 1 PM. We won the last two games, so Nannie is happy about that.

See yez!

Good afternoon everyone. Tomorrow morning is the morning I learn if I have colon cancer. I'm not a very fearful person, because I have had life-threatening experiences before, but I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. 

Thank you.
