Anyone that can take the 'headache' out of it will work ! I visited a local agency and told her our $$ a year and a half ago and still haven't heard back. Some of that got spent on home things so there's not as much now but at the time was more than plenty. Anytime I need anything in this area no one cares enough to return calls/emails. And here I sit with the most difficult customer in the universe and I'm still trying to make him happy.
Yes I'd love to fly to one of those places, I'm good with it but there's that nasty "H" word
Suggestions appreciated!
Thanks Tommy!

Morning y'all - Warm this morning but a beautiful day. Temps of about 100 are due here all week. Plants all seem to be happy. My garage has been thoroughly cleaned out, the house got a deep clean, all laundry got done, nursing home visit behind me, etc, etc. Have been staying busy. And busy enough at work not to even be able to use the restroom when I need to. Good for owner's pockets, no change to mine. Still trying to find a vaca spot for us and florida area has been crossed off the list with all the hurricanes. Would be my luck to get there and the entire week be ruined. Although I have friends in Pensacola at the moment and it's been beautiful. I hate planning stuff like this. I'm horrible at it
Hope everyone has a good day.

I don't think it's far fetched one bit. I have a cousin that disbelieves that the 'media' or anyone else can influence people and believes everything she sees on the news without accepting the fact they show her what they want to. This is in order to incite reactions which create riots or change, etc. She also doesn't believe that politicians can be bought by other agencies for laws they want. And she votes.
Tee I hope you can avoid the introduction to a new specialist. Prayers you come out clean.
Was hoping for a slow day at the office, as I'm worn out. Hit the ground running when I got home and got the garage totally cleaned out, stuff thrown out, put up etc, then started with laundry, making dinner, lemon-lime water for me, tea for him, etc. But alas, when someone comes in with 3200 you start on that job.
Have a good day folks

I remember where I was on this day also, at the paper working and was standing in the newsroom when it all came on TV. Some of the images I saw after sent through AP were horrible. Public saw only a few, some of those actually taken weren' t published.
Marcus I'm glad to hear there will be some improvements with Grampa at the facility. The one here has changed hands and admins a few times. Of course her 'other' family that complains to me all the time came to visit and naturally my phone blew up. "She's lost weight" - of course she has, she was a 2x and needed too. "her legs are so tiny", yes, because she can't use them and has lost a lot of muscle tone. Happens when you are wheelchair bound and have no use of your legs. They need to take over the job.

Good afternoon y'all. Happy belated birthday to Sue, hope it was a good one.
Go hug your loved ones and let the "I love you's" be the first and last they hear. Compliment often, be kind to those around you as your kindness might be the last they experience.
Thoughts come to mind as on my FB newsfeed several have posted about losing someone just in the last few days. I got a message very early Saturday that my ex husband had passed away. He called me 6 months ago to "thank me for the inspriation" he said I gave him to work on stress and anxiety, health etc in order to get on a heart transplant list. He got a new heart on Groundhog Day. He also enrolled in classes at the local college and made the Vice Chancellors' list in May. He passed Sept. 3 his sister told me. Same age as me. He had an emergency quadruple bypass at 42 I think.
Also had the one in the nursing home to wind up in the floor a couple nights ago. They didn't send her out to be checked till the next day after she complained so much. Pisses me off. I have a video recording of her telling me "I hit the call button and no one came, I hollered and they still didn't come. I ended up in the floor and hollered till I finally fell back asleep, then woke up to everyone over me asking how I got there". Pisses me smooth off. Turns out there was ONE CNA working the entire building. I had a few words for the RN Sunday regarding that. Thinking I might need to see the atty.
anyway - hope everyone has had a good weekend and week.

G'mornin - sunny here, humidity rising right along with the temp.
Sorry to hear of your troubles, Matt, hope things look better for you today.
Hoping for a slow day at the office today, I do have some stuff for the local popo to work on but other than that, I think I might can take a breath for once.
Have a good day y'all

For some reason, one of thoese "why women live longer than men" images comes to mind when reading that.
Sunny and hot here again, humidity high as the sky. Rush job on an ambulance today and it's already ready for print and didn't even get here until 11 am. The guy's known about it since the 15th but 'forgot about it'. Riiiight.
Ready to go home and sleep but have to make dinner first and probably finish laundry.
Bought one of those "deep fry oven" thingies since Sams' had 30$ off. So far so good, catfish in there last night, worked out pretty well. So did fries. Might try some breaded zuchinni sticks.

Sorry been absent, tried to disconnect some this weekend. Unfortunately, our outing Sunday turned into one car service request after another. Monday that was planned for stay at home pool day was ruined by 4 adjacent neighbors mowing the lawn. They had all week and weekend why ruin the holiday for others? They're retired so no excuse. He's worked 8am -10pm two weeks straight plus weekends, he just wanted one day in peace and quiet.
So Tommy are you still safe? I've seen that Dorian isn't in any hurry. BF thinks we need to plan to fly somewhere else to a beach as that one might be trashed.

Sending good vibes your way Tommy for safe havens.
This is why I told bf this is not a good time for a southerly visit anywhere. I was caught on a cruise ship in middle of nowhere during Hurricane Hugo. Not fun. Last time I took a cruise too.
Off today, need to run to next town and get tire fixed on the vette, have a nail. Also need a few things from the store and might hit a flea market or two while I'm up there. Why not?

Letty, if you fly, Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airports are about a 4 1/2 to 5 hour drive. Car rentals are easily available. There are airports in Marathon or Key West. Both small airports. Marathon is 50 miles from Key West. Fantasy Fest is a big party weekend in Key West if you would like to see a lot of trans/gays/straights in crazy themed outfits. Never been but many of my friends have and say it's a hoot. Lots of topless painted damsels. There are a number of nice bars and restaurants, nightly shows at sundown on the Mallory Pier and it's a good walking town. The Keys pass times fishing, drinking, eating and f@(%ing in no particular order. Of course there are a few beaches.


Works for me! Was looking into flights and hotels directly in key west, then possibly drive from there to other things. Miami airport then car is also a possibility however somehow I always end up contributing to the po po there by way of parking ticket trying to return the rental car and make it back to gate in time. I think they have this scheme planned out well. Do you have links or days these events happen? Thanks!

A bit cooler here too but shaping up to be a beautiful day. Too bad I'm stuck at work. Hopefully not nearly as busy as last two days, likely will end up helping with production today rather designing.
Tommy once we head that way I'll holler. I need to get details from him about how many days he wants to be gone, budget, drive or fly, rent a car etc. He tells me 'book something' then fails to give me any direction.
Britches up, shirt down, shoes on and get goin!

Thanks for the political explanation of hiring dumb asses. Now we know how it started!
Very busy day at the office again, stuff has exploded around here, not sure why but I"m sure owner appreciates it as he's gone this week moving his freshman son into Harvard.
BF has asked me about a trip to Key West soon as he's not been and he's apparently figured out I'm stressed and sick of not being able to do anything or go anywhere. HE's a homebody. IT's either us do things or I'll live elsewhere and do them myself. If I will be by myself all the time I could've saved myself a house note and other bills. Perhaps he's getting the point. He's not old but he's old enough he needs to quit working like his body is 21.
It's up to me though to find us a place to stay. I've not been in years either, but want a beach front with amenities, oudoor cabanas, massages out doors, etc but away from obnoxious kids. And don't want a hurricane on my head

Nothing but rain here and cooler temps (under 90) expected for the week.
After last week and weekend and this past week, I tried to 'unplug' sort of this weekend. BF has
My apologies for not checking in, I went back to see where Gris' son passed. Our condolences and may God be with you and your family. Bless you all

Gris, thoughts and prayers for you and your family. Glad everyone is ok from the accident, cars can be fixed .
Rained cats and dogs today at work, temp dropped a ton along with the humidity. I wasn't able to enjoy last weekend and now this weekend looks promising and now they're calling for rain all weekend.
Had a crazy day at work today, a dude that paints storefronts has retired and it's "paint the town red" week to support our college and the first game and we got slammed. I can't believe what all I got done in one day. Installer will have a busy weekend.
Hope everyone had a good day and evening.

Mawnin.
Is this Thursday?
I'm so sorry for you and your son, Gris. I just can't imagine
Hope everyone has a non-stressy day. Stormed here last night pretty rough, sun is out today guessing it will be like an oven outside. The other half of the locals are excited that pumpkins are sprouting up all over: pumpkin spice latte, pumkin hand lotions, pumkin candles. Ick. Summer isn't for another month, let it rest.

Jeebus Cripes! Any way to ASK anyone what you did?
I quit going over there when I encountered some dude named "Red Wings" (why?? isn't that what they call it when you sleep with a woman on the rag? eww) ANyway, they dont' like women and one was being an ass to me and some folks in another forum I'm in jumped in to help. Another DM'd me to tell me to "keep my head down" WTF? Naw brah, ya'll can just have it.
Another dude over there was a mod and going through there picking out everyone that talked negatively against him and sued him to take their Corvette. Even at one point had a photo of him posed with the cars he 'won' in defamation suits from his hot shot lawyer.
I can't stand people like that.

Still no vaca for us, although the bf has instructed me to find us a Key West trip since he's never been. We'll see how long he's serious.

Good morning,
Marcus, very sorry to hear of your SIL and sending prayers for speedy healing and recovery.
Gris, very sorry to hear of your son as well, no words. I can't imagine what you must feel. Prayers for comfort, understanding and all that God can provide for you and your family.
Hot and sticky here again today, in the office today at least it's air conditioned. Had a flustering stressy weekend with one 'customer' waiting till the last minute and bothering everyone over the weekend, including Sunday while I was trying to be at the nursing home. She is back at the facility after her hospital episode, however she still has mental challenges, as in, not knowing certain details, or where she is, and argues with you. I try not to argue and let her go on but she tries to force it. Very mentally exhausting and haven't had an entire half day to myself without stress and I had a four day weekend to relax. Never got to. The 'customer' ended up having the competitor do the small job even though I took my time to come to the office and do what he needed. Install was the issue. We have a few large jobs in process at the college here graphics and window film for a building there - so staff was maxed. He waitted till the last mintue to want a decal on his truck - literally small taters compared to thousands we were already in the middle of. Plus owner here (also doing installs) is trying to get his son packed to move to Harvard this week so we're trying to get all done we can before he's gone all week. I'd love to be retired and not worry with any of it. I'm just a grunt here.

Afternoon all -
thank you for the well wishes on the wasp/sweatbee/horsefly attacks. Doc had me on a methlyprednisone pack all week and it immediately helped with swelling. Itching not so much. Think of 10000 skeeters biting you all at once and it never lets up for 3 days straight. No sleep and have scratched myself but with the help of yet another med from him, all is well. Miracles in chemistry. Never had anything do me that way.
been a busy last few days, worked outside Thursday at local college football field helping with installs, astro turf was very hot. I got too hot, we both did. Worked inside and outside the house Friday, tried to take off Saturday and was bothered by everyone wanting work done they sat on their hineys and put off till the last minute. they think it's up to us to fix it. And cousin in nursing home was admitted to hospital late that afternoon, send back in the middle of the night. I have visited today some, she's like a dementia patient due to the UTI (does that to old women). There are some equipped to handle that, however it's not my strongpoint. Stressed. Have a few things to do here, doc appts for foot tomorrow and hopefully be to myself that afternoon. I'd like just one whole day or a whole weekend without being pestered by something.
Tommy so very sorry to hear of your loss of your friend and those gator babies are CUTE!
Hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Good morning - sunny day here, nice out last night and early this morning. Was up every hour last night with this itching but the prednisone pack is helping. I took the whole top row (7 I think) when I got home to get a jump start and noticed immediate results. The hurting stopped, swellling started to go down, redness is going away but this danged itching is what kept me up all night. Tee I've never seen a reaction on me like that either. Got stung also on schin and it's just a tiny spot, bout size of a quarter, hurt a little, nothing else. Couple weeks ago I got stung though and had a large local reaction but nothing like this. Fingertips were getting cold so I called the doc. I'm due in at 6:45 tonight.
When you get done with that remodel I have some work lined up lol ;)
Have a great day

Very sorry for your loss, Tommy.
Back at the office today, actually have some work waiting on me. One van a dude was a horrendous ass to me for asking a deposit on, boss said do him a proof anyway, and the guy ended up going elsewhere. Now he's brought it here for us to fix and redo what the others messed up and he said their work is just ugly. Tried to tell ya. I'd like to bill him for my other work also but that's the reason I get a deposit in the first place. I don't work for free.
Took yesterday off to have ONE day for myself. BF saw some wasps the day before and was guessing where they were. We upturned stones around the landscaping and nothing, then I saw weeds and had a squirrel moment and began pulling weeds. One bunch I pulled evidently was connected to the nest we didn't see and I got stung here and there. My hand is huge and hurts/itches. Later on, pulling weeds elsewhere and got bit by a swarm of horseflies the size of my thumb. Big black furry things.
On the search for a pain pill for tonight.

I have two, each are those three-trunk things, pot and all are about as tall as me. One I was considering planting the other would say in a pot. There are a few people here that 'winterize' palms outdoors but seems like a lot of hassle. I do have a very large Sago that I have to winterize as it's planted.
the pot I currently have them in is one of those plasticky/rubbery pots but decorative looking. Should I change it? I bought a bag of palm fertilizer last time I was in Fla, they don't sell it here. The other one is just fine in the pot it's in, not sure about the other. I did put an ant bait in there as a precaution and have used some antifungal all over the hedges and other stuff as well. I have English Laurel somethingoranothers and something's getting to them also.
Marcus if you send me a semi - include something that will dissolve campers that've been parked for two years and some weed killer for my neighbor who refuses to weed eat lol

Nice car pics Gris! I liked my 87 but preferred the 96. And, the car looks nothing like a Mexican one, a friend of mine in Taos bought a "mexicaned" one and he has a money pit on his hands.

Beautiful cross you made there!
44 years??!! Wow! Congrats on the anniversary, that's awesome!
Rained here early this morning, I got up way too early, it started raining again and I hit the couch for a couple hours. Just now getting my wits about me. Harbor freight has a sale (as usual) 20% off stuff, plus foldable saw horses are $8 and you get a 24 pack of AA batteries free. We use those things in everything. I usually get rechargables but free is free. They also have outdoor scissors I can use for less than $1. Might head there later along with Lowe's who I heard had plants on clearance. I need one more like I need a hole in my head.
Tommy - could you answer a question for me on a Pygmy date palm for zone 7-7b? Much appreciated - want to plant the thing it's not liking its pot -

Cloudy and wet here, storms came through yesterday and absolutely trashed our yard front and back. Spent till dark picking up, repotting plants, fishing things out of the pool, you name it. Rain due again today and 50% tomorrow. My plans tomorrow are to sleep in till at least 9 then if it's still dreary I suppose I'll do some inside cleaning. The garage is in horrible shape. Need to get off my but and get started painting and what not in there.
have a happy day y'all and behave

Huge storm just went through here, very high winds, rain, lightning, etc. Checked camera at home, bout to have a chair in the pool, couple plants blown over, a friends big palm toppled but it's okay. Why do we have these again? I can't think of any necessity for storms, but supposedly everything has a reason. Y'all go check your yard if you're in the path

I'm stealing that cartoon.
Beautiful day here, would be a great day to stay home in the pool. Especially since I'm in a box of an office with no sunlight and nothing really to do all day. I'm getting burnt out quickly and thinking of looking for a different job. I feel useless.
Tonight I'm trying to talk myself in to filling up the 4 gal backpack and doing the skeeter spray out front. Probably need it again out back too, we had some storms move through last night with very high winds, knocking over all my stuff and what skeeter dope I did put out is probably gone by now. Storms always bring in a new crop.

I liked my 87 and I really liked my 96, should've kept it AND got the other car. The C5 to me felt like a cheaply made pos that felt like it was going to fly apart the faster I went. Mine was accessorized with custom painted interior to match the outside thus getting rid of all the black, also complete tigershark kit as well as cam and other things, and a stereo upgrade. Put all that in the one I have now and I'd be good. The GS C6 reminds me of the '96. It has the solid plant, firm feel and feels heavier and better built. I do like the looks and it still resembles a Corvette. The 7's I'm not thrilled with.

Big Corvette ride got called off yesterday due to the possibility of inclement weather. Then of course the weather turned out just fine....oh well..... we will try again.

Gris it may be time for an upgrade in your Corvette stable... C5's and 6's are very reasonable right now. Just saying......

How about it Guru's...... what all is going on?

Unless you just love the C5 I'd skip that one, C6, C7 lol or the new C8 :D

Good morning ya'll - happy belated anniversary Tommy, in lieu of flowers whatever you chose I hope worked well lol
I do admire all of you on your marriages - you all have lasted longer than both my marriages and two live-ins put together.
Friday was off but spent the better part of the day in the DMV office. I always say I never have a long wait there but Friday was the day. Me and what appeared to be a 'cryp' sat together, he was exceptionnally well mannered - we came up with a plan. They call so many numbers and those people aren't there - I told him, next one they call and nobody gets up and they call again, you get up and go. He did. I though I'll be danged. So the next number I did it too otherwise I'd still be there. First/end of month is a no-go for that place. Took Saturday to unplug from everyone, or tried to. Regular nursing home Sunday, wasn't mentally prepared for all that again and worked in yard some after. Yesterday I had my podiatry appointment then took a friend right after to her dreaded colonoscopy and stayed with her the rest of the day then drove her to get her groceries at Wally World. Told her to appreciate that cause I avoid that place lol. Been a busy weekend. Hopefully a boring day at the office for some rest.
Have a great day

Beautiful day here today, again I sit in solitutde in my office in an entire suite all by myself with no window. Nothing to work on today. Tried to renew my driver's license this morning, I usually have luck at the revenue office. Not today. I pulled ticket 82 thinking maybe that was left from yesterday. I looked up she hollered 53. Sh*t. I got back up and left as I didn't see that many in there ahead of me but enough that I'd be there for a hour or more. I'll go back another day. It's been out this long what's another day?
My car insurance just dropped again, down to I think 113$/mo now. I need to go see what the NCM insurance is all about. Looking at a '97 red Mercedez 500SL for a little commuter and park the vette. Has 92k miles and is clean as a pin, vinyl top never used and doubt the hard top has ever been removed till now. He's listed for $6,900 which is at the top of the list. Though I might offer 5500 and see where we get. Looks worth the 6900 tho. I still need a freakin truck...

In other news: This was just posted by a friend in another forum I am in:

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/equifax-se ... may-be-the-better-offer/?

Just filed my claim. As far as I know, they won't ask for any documentation regarding the credit monitoring service. I froze all my accounts with the various credit bureaus. Better than monitoring IMO.

Agreed, nice ride!
Saw a '14 on local Marketplace for $15,000 says it has a lien, I'm half a mind to ask if they seriously only want that much and gimme the title lol. When things sound too good to be true -
I went back to read your medical post, Tommy and sorry to hear what the doc had to say. When I hit 50 all the docs came at me with every test they had and thankfully I turned out squeaky clean. I do agree with Gris though in that a lot of our things are determined and handed down the chain from our grands, and have read a lot comes from the maternal side. Not sure the facts but -
Was nice and sunny here all weekend, took the trip to the casino with friends, everyone won then came home broke, as usual. At least we were fed and housed. Rained and big storms yesterday afternoon though. Side job of the book for the paper finally sent to printer yesterday so hopefully life will resume to normal.

Cool driving photos!
Weather has been awesome here, too bad I'm suck in an office. Finally finished painting my cabinet so I can bring it in the house tonight and get it positioned. Then I can get my collectible glassware off my dining table and reclaim it. Side job book nearing completion, very few edits from the news end, and ads are coming in slowly but at least they're coming.
Gris - bandits love froot loops -

+1, take my $fiddy

Or there's this:
https://www.springmountainmotorsports. ... jjN_TS2d53Leq-y3E&lang=en

Been busy at home trying to deep clean, feel too bad to, foot still hurts and now I have a side job from the paper that showed up 2 days late. And I'm leaving town for the casino Friday night for a girl night one of them is having a birthday. Free rooms and buffets so yea, count me in.
My old boss at the paper retires Wednesday as well so they're in a scramble to get this book done so he can be the one to upload it before he peels out. I'm also trying to paint a cabinet I bought and we finaly got the dog shaved last night.
I need a nap.
Happy Wednesday!

CorvetteBlogger on Twitter has been putting out stuff daily about the reveal. They've had all sorts of renderings, leaks you name it. I'm anxious to see it although not as much so as those who spent thousands for a 'ticket'. Some folks from the 'other' forum were invited I hear. The last time they swapeed things up in 2014 my partner was one of those invited to Vegas for some track driving and what not since he's a master tech and would be one of those working on them. Part of his schooling or something, but him, the GM and the Tech Manager here all three went. He was interested in the traction control and some other things. They were 'dared' to try to 'break it loose'. I told him they need to send me, I seem to not have any trouble with that.
Slow day at work, trying to tie up some loose ends before the day ends. Hot as heck here today, heat warnings issued.

Our IHOP here has gone to the dogs. Used to be great but lately junk. McDonald's isn't my fave either, but of the 3 here one is great. We now have two Checker's places, they have a couple of things I like, but I am not supposed to have such delicacies. I do try to cook decently healthy for us at home and make good choices on the run most of the time.
Marcus, for your top, see if you have a Llumar automotive film dealer nearby and if so, see if they offer the CLR80. It's a near-clear film that they can tint your top panel with and it will block out a TON of the heat without adding color. We use it on windshields a lot as well as sunroofs here.
Slow day at work, hopin in passes quickly, fourth night of zero sleep.
Have a good un ya'll

Howdy,
Raining off and on here today but thankfully cooler. Arron left the hose running in the pool as the storms overfilled, it, someone please remember to tell me to shut that off when I get home.
Marcus, stop payment, CC dispute, etc should rattle their cages. I'm like Gris, I like to get local if I can so I not only see what I'm getting, I can ask questions and yes, pitch a fit if I"m screwed.
Sorry to hear about your long-time friend, Tee, prayers.
Semi-busy day at the office, seems I'm getting known for D.A.R.E. vehicle wraps. They take these things to shows and competitions, I guess word gets around.
Bout to crank up on another side job for the paper, the yearly 'concierge book' they do. New publisher, one I worked under retired recently, this one I worked for at a distance a few years ago. My immediate boss retires at the end of this month. Pretty soon I won't know anyone left Am I getting old?

good morning, almost afternoon to yall.
Been raining here off and on, not nearly as much as we were told - all due to "Barry". Was supposed to be home deep cleaning the house today but after two nights of nearly no sleep, ain't happening. Foot issues persist, went to doc suspecting a heel spur, xray shows one not large enough to matter. Sent me home to use a heel pad for 2 weeks. Neurologist visit this week and he asks WTF is wrong why limping? I told him the story, he was annoyed 'regular' doc didn't suggest plantar fascilitis as that's more common. I'm doing what I can for that and should have an impending podiatry visit when they schedule. I'm wishing my neurologist was my PCP instead - he's done more more good that my normal PCP.
Went to Little Rock Saturday to fix the door on Arron's moms' car where she wrecked it. Got her a replacement door free and painted as a return for a recent favor. She's back on the road now. Dreary day here might just go back to bed.

Reading all your stuff bout makes me tired. Early into the office today as I have a doc appt at 10:30 so I can get started on some things and offset being gone. The sweltering heat yesterday saw a break with some storms that moved through and gave some much needed rain. And it cooled it down to 78. Nice evening out, went to see the sunset down the road and a light supper.
Sun is out today but Saturday the coastal storms end up this way.

Retirement? What's that ? I think I've heard of it, I'll probably never be able to.
Rained here just now. Was fine earlier however very hot and very humid, 101 for index although temp was 87.
Arron is on the motorcycle so he's not happy to go home.
Some motivation for the day:

Glad to see everyone is keeping occupied with cars, yard and kids. Yard work here too this weekend, then unexpected company on the day I had an afternoon planned for myself. Then yesterday I was given 50 ears of corn to do something with, and promised a friend I'd go to the next town over shopping. Waaaayyy too hot/humid to even open the door let alone be outside. Figured I'd cool off in the pool when I got home, yet it was lightening and raining.
Figure Ill deal with the corn tonight and perhaps some laundry and supper will either be left overs or sandwiches. Too hot to turn the stove on.

Self - no gov't funding that I'm aware of but not completely sure of that, either.

They use their John 3:16 Ministry as a way to gather meth addicts, show them religion and turn them back out all brand new but with a 'skill'. Unfortunately, this 'skill teaching' involves that 'ministry' to have under it's umbrella several different things including, body shop, wrap and graphics shop, and you name it. There's absoutely no way in this world you can teach body skills, graphics skills or wrap skills to someone in such a short time and them turn out good products. Yet since they claim to be a ministry, they can make money off these 'side businesses' and not pay taxes.
