Good morning.

Took FOREVER to load the page after several tries.  Guys, you really need to get these bugs worked out for your "customers".   Anyway, once on seems to work okay.

Stars, glad the surgery went well and that you continue to improve.

BC, hope you're feeling better every day.

Going today to get my car worked on.  The power steering is making a loud noise.  I told them it was doing that since they replaced it.  It's under warranty so all I have to pay is labor...which unfortunately as we know is substantial.  Best friend is meeting me there and we're going to breakfast and checking out a "new to us" health food store in called "Sprouts".  It's in Clearwater, two cities up (we're part of a megapolis so the county of nearly one million is really one big city) and not too convenient, but we're going north to the dealership, north for breakfast and can go north some to visit Sprouts.  Not sure what else we'll do as it's a bit chilly for outside stuff.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good Morning!

Apparently the servers to this web-site are being "tweaked" making things kind of sluggish. Hopefully the tweaking will be done soon. . . 

Recently woke up. Just finished drinking First Coffee. Yes, it was delicious! 

The week-end at work was a nice steady-busy.  I was Mr. ICU Nurse for Friday and Saturday night. Sunday night, the full-time Shift Director called in sick, so I played the role of Mr. Shift Director Sunday. Monday was a day and night of rest. 

There was only one thing that happened of significance, Monday, which was kind of alarming! At around 5:30 PM, I heard this blood-curdling scream! I checked and it wasn't me. (LOL!) I re-checked and it was my loving wife! I ran downstairs from the studio to see what caused my poor Amy to scream so loudly. Well, our canine-family-member, Mayson, who is around 16 or 17 years old, brought us a present to the back porch. It was a dead squirrel. LOL! Honestly?!? I was impressed! Apparently our Mayson still has that "hunter-dog" in him! LOL! I'm not sure why he didn't attempt to actually EAT the squirrel. (That really would have been yucky!) We've never known Mayson to actually EAT his catch. (He's really not a smart dog.) But, apparently, he caught it and wanted to share his "prize" as a gift to us! LOL! "Look, Mom and Dad! I brought THIS to you!!" LOL! Amy, still kind of shaken up, instructed me to get rid of "IT"! I did, of course, and the screaming and high-anxiety subsided. LOL! THAT was the only thing of significance that happened yesterday.

Today? (Tonight?) I go to work. The same is true for Wednesday night. THEN, I'm off the week-end. Friday is a big day for our teeny-tiny ICU, though. We're sponsoring a "Healthy Heart Night" at a near-by health spa. We've been sponsoring this educational event since around 2005/2006, and we're doing it again this year. I am one of the co-chairs who is organizing this year's Healthy Heart Night. I'm not really good at organizing such things. But, everything seems to be in good order. Can't wait for Saturday to happen, though, which means the yearly Healthy Heart Night will done and over with for another year. Again.

Nothing much else going on. . . 

Hope all have a pleasant day, today. I'll be back later to read your posts. Peace! 🙂

Hi Tweety! I see we both started today's Good Morning Thread. Again. LOL! Tweety, I hope you get the power-steering issue worked out to your satisfaction! Hope the rest of your day is uneventful. 

Dear Moderators. . . Can you please combine today's two Good Morning threads together?!? Thank you! 🙂

Tweety hope the car isssue is resolved

Ted our old cat would often bring back dead animals

Yesterday was a pretty standard work day, kinda frustrated that several people who told me to call them back today didn't answer.  Gets demoralizing.  One patient finally did call back but near the end of the day, so I will still be documenting today.  Still not sure if I want to stay, but I may have to wait and see, I'm not sure I have enough information to make a decision

Went in spite of the snow to run a few errands, then came home and exercised

Tonight the church group is meeting for dinner at a local restaurant.  Wonder if we'll get many people, given how cold it will be

Tomorrow will be record cold, J and I might cancel our date then if it is indeed very cold

Good morning all.

It is frigid here today, but it will be much, much worse tomorrow and Thursday.

I set Biggie's breakfasts and dinners yesterday, before his grain froze. I also broke apart enough chopped hay for today, but it was impossible to do up to Thursday. Chopped hay freezes too.

You seem to have recovered from your weekend shift, Tweety. I am still recovering from mine. Seems like you'll have a pleasant day despite car repairs.

That is spool much work, herring, to pick up those line needles. But I know it needs to be done. Fire hazard.

Hope all have a good day.

So much work and pine needles.

Auto correction is a useless tool.

Morning-

I'm finally starting to feel better.  I had a little energy last night and started packing for my short trip to Miami.  I am happy to be getting out of Dodge for the polar vortex temperatures.  I will have to leave the heat up while I'm gone so the pipes don't freeze.  The bunny has been in the house, so I don't have to worry about her.  DD will come by every day before work to feed and check on the animals.

Glad that Stars' procedure went well.  I'm hoping it decreases her discomfort.

Tweety-Is "Sprouts" supposed to be like Whole Foods?  They could use a little competition.  Hope the car repair doesn't cost too much.

Joe and Nel-stay warm and safe.  I hope the cold temps don't stick around too long.  Oh wait...it's January.  What am I thinking?

Hi Ted-hope you are warm too.

Hope all have a good day!

Clear and cold today, about 30 degrees. I made Angus wear a coat for the walk and for once, he didn't seem to mind.

Wishing warm thoughts to the polar vortex folks, including you, Tweety. When we lived in Idaho, it would get bitterly cold, and then as it warmed up, pipes would thaw and burst, and streets and roads would heave and giant potholes would form. Many parking lots at businesses had plug-ins for cars that had engine heaters to make it easier to start after sitting in the cold. 

I had our data person pull up measles vaccination rates for our county schools, and they are pretty bad. Some of the private schools are as low as 70%. The outbreak is still 300 miles away, but just a car ride away. I have talked to 2 moms who are concerned about their babes that are too young to get vaccinated. 

Time for a meeting, ta ta

Just ordered Biggie a new leather turnout halter, with a brass nameplate to replace the one that remains "lost".

It will be ready tomorrow.

I stopped at work to feed the parking lot cats, in an effort to keep them fed and warm, with the polar vortex tomorrow.

Hoping the others who feed them at work will do so tonight.

It is pretty windy here already.

It will all be worse tomorrow and Thursday.

It then warms up again.

It is the temperature fluctuations that are bad for the horses.

I was going to write "Good Morning", but then I glanced at the clock!

Woke up at 10:25 AM: able to stand up straight! Have various sore and aching areas. one due to surgical site, the others are some muscle spasms, and then the usual arthritic stuff, but that is tolerable.

Tweety, Oh, man, I HATE when my vehicle makes suspicious noises! Hope your power-steering gets fixed RIGHT this time. Glad you are still under warranty. My very first car...a 1967 Chevy...was the reason I learned to recognize certain odors from the engine. If I smelled it from someone else's car, because I'd had that experience, I'd try to warn the driver that they needed to get it taken care of pronto! But that's pretty much the extent of my automotive knowledge.

Joe, I was reading in the paper this morning about your cold-snap-vortex ... thing that struck me was when they said "DON"T take deep breaths." Eeek! It's "BOOGER-FREEZING-WEATHER as per that cartoon Whosamacallit and Hobbs. Hope y'all stay safe and warm.

You, too, Nel. Horse care is a LOT colder work than Case Management! You (I) wouldn't think chopped hay would FREEZE, but there ya go. How is your other horse doing? Hope next weekend is MUCH better and your case load and patients are a bit more reasonable!

herring, hope your 'spool work' becomes less so 😉 Enjoyed you dog and yard pictures the other day, and the audio clips.

BCg,  Glad to hear your 'crud' continues to improve, and am happy you get to leave the vortex area. ...Though, ya know, and ask Tweety about this, Florida does suffer cold-spells, though NOT AS!  And Miami is further South than he lives, so perhaps when Miami natives shiver and complain, you can say "Heck-awmighty, THIS AIN'T COLD!"

j22,  Many's the winter I've had to hear from my sister that she had to crawl under their trailer to blow the pipes with two hair-dryers, while her husband climbs up a ladder to the roof to shovel the snow off of it. They are TOO old to bne doing this kind of work, but my sister says that though she is growing older, she is NOT OLD! (72) Still, it kills me to hear about the struggles in their Maine's winters.

May come back by later...

So, so glad you are feeling better, Stars!

I hope you continue to improve.

It is 20 degrees here, with a nasty, nasty wind.

It is cold, but when I lived in Iowa, I experienced -55 temperatures, so this isn't great, and tomorrow will be worse, but it will be okay.

Talli and friends are staying in tomorrow. He had a hard time walking on the uneven frozen ground today.

Biggie will go out.

Yes, I got a text message asking me to work tonight. My answer: No.

Hope all are warm and well.
