Top of the morning to ya -
gloomy cold and rainy here. According to our weatherman we had some flurries last night. I can't confirm. When I went to bed I guess I died dadgum clock scared the heck out of me this morning. Needed it. Need to hit the gym tonight also but too much to do around the house. Gotta get the cousin's Christmas stuff down out of the attic and try to decorate a little for her Friday if I can go and she's back in her normal room. Then there's laundry (3 loads to put away), plus supper, plus dishes, plus I need to deep celan in the back of the house. Surely that counts as exercise right?
Have a great day

viagra? that'll fix it lol
Seriously tho - I was in the gym last night and they have an infrared ultrasound. I'm in love. Loosens all the tightness, relaxes, supposed to detoxify, help with pain and all that. And you can get one for home for around $1000 or so, they aren't all pricey. Portable ones are less. I think we are going to look into one, he hurts a lot and it would help him.
Will await patiently for photo of said birds wearing wool socks..
Bright and sunny again today but very cold from the lows last night, supposed to creep up to about 50 today.
Not got a tree up, nothing - need to but haven't been in the mood.

Getting into the decorating spirit just isn't in me this year. Too much bad juju I reckon. I'll end up in the mood to do all that crap when it's nearly over probably. Me and Arron already swapped unwrapped presents. He knew I wanted Raybans and I know he needs bike gloves so there it's over. He bought himself a telescope on the cyber Monday stuff and I got me a couple of things and we're over it.
I visited the nursing home for her bday and have been pretty busy most of the weekend. Busy today at the office as well. Would like to go to the gym but am getting sleepy, as i didn't sleep enough last night.
Best wishes Tee and hope you feel better soon.
Time to bundle up down here, lows of 20ish next couple nights. Day average upper 40s-50

Black Friday no longer matters to me much, I dont' buy for many anymore and will pickup something for the cousin in the nursing home, the bf and one or two others that's it. I'll probably get it last minute as usual.
We had only 6 but enough food for 50 at least. We do it every year. Turkey, ham, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, seasoned green beans, cranberry/raspberry/pineapple/pecan salad, dressing, grape salad, lil smokies with baked beans, cheesecake, coconut cake, better than sex cake (not verified), banana pudding, pumpkin pie - I'm sure I'm forgetting something but we had lots. and lots of leftovers.
Slow day at the office but it's almost over. Happy weekend

Happy turkey day y’all! Finally resting for a bit before the brood gets here. We have food for 50 with 8 actually coming. We do this every time. I’ll get the leaf in the table shortly so we’ll have room.
So sorry to hear about your troubles Mike, prayers and congrats on the house!
Marcus and Tee get well and feel better soon.
Picking up on yesterday’s tv thread I do find it interesting that tv technology was slow coming yet there we were putting a man on the moon.

Beautiful sunny day here so go have a good ‘un.

Good afternoon - beautiful sunny day h ere but cooler. Rained cats and dogs last night so puddles everywhere, water in the road in some places on my way in, all the drainage ditches were beyond full.
Hope you feel better soon Tee and prayers sent your way Marcus.
Slow day at work, and email isn't working so that's hampered what little I did plan to do. Got some food prep done last night, will do some more tonight then only have to put a couple things in the oven tomorrow. Gang due in between 12-1.
Hope everyone has a great day

Tee, sounds like yours might be cold or flu - they say the 'rona starts with no taste or smell according to the family nurses.

I have the same coffee maker I've had for 11 years, was mom's she had for about 5. Love it except I've cut a lot of caffeine out. If I make coffee now I use a 32oz french press. I did purchase a vintage 1950 Presto percolator tho - that thing is da bomb.

I still want Chinese takeout. I think I have them convinced to do that for Christmas. Each person brings a different dish, one Chinese, one Mexican, etc. I'm good. Looks like our crowd is at 8, at my house and we'll have more desserts than actual food. Enough food for 50 people. I think I'l fix a plate and hide out in the pool house.
Good morning and hope everyone has a great day. Cool here but sun is out and 55 expected for the high. 29 for the low unless they've changed it. This is Arkansas after all.
I noticed yesterday I posted on the Sunday thread. Was wore out, but at least for now, the house and the dog are clean.

Good evening. Hope everyone has had a good day.
Spent most of my weekend doing my six month deep cleaning. It sure needed it. And now , so do I. The dog is scheduled for a bath also. Not my problem. Bf can deal with it. Everyone is coming here for the holiday but prob only have about 8. I’d just soon have Chinese take out.
Supper on the stove and heat turned back on. We’re due for some low 30s tonight
Y’all stay warm

Tee, very sorry to hear of your loss. Our condolences to you and your family. Great job on the door also by the way.
Loved that song from yesterday, it's one we used to sing in 'nursing home church'. It was a favorite.
Beautiful day here today, not too busy at work, anxious to get out and go home. Had my PT today and am getting around a lot better. Should've done this a long time ago. Only have one visit left, the rest I can do at home. Might go check out a new gym in town.
Hope everyone has a great day

Good afternoon -
beautiful day here again. Found out what small group we are having for turkey day will be at my house. It'll take me till then to clean the house in order for them to mess it up.
I seriously thought the holiday was two more weeks away. Geez this snuck up on me.
Slow day at work so I'm pilfering through some old CDs and files, memory lane so to speak. Hurricane Katrina photos, pics of me, stuff from work at the paper, lot of junk. Just keeping busy

I think Tommy has the fence issue figured out. I'd opt for that last option just to piss them off. But that's me.
Gris, prayers for your wife. Dealing with doctors and such will frustrate the best of us.
Has been really nice here the last few days, supposed to hit over 70 this coming weekend. Looking forward to that and being outside in the sun.
Sorry for my abscense, just kinda kept to my self a bit last few days and not felt real great. I don't have the virus, just some sinus and chest mess, sneezing what not, typical for me this time of year.
Cousin in nursing home has yet another UTI. Being treated, in the mean time she's confused, as is typical with her and those. Hoping better by Friday and I'll go visit again. They pretty much let me come and go as I please, which I'm grateful. However I don't feel it's fair to any of the others. None of it makes sense.
Hope everyone has a good rest of the day

Bob Turd Day Indeed! I"m at work in my dungeon and it's sunny outside, although much cooler. Still nice in the sun though.
I have friends that were caught up in the draft. They were poor and at that disadvantage. As much as they did hate the draft, my Vietnam freinds have mentioned that being drafted might be the needed "fix" for the attitudes of some of these younger people. "If they dealt with what we did, they'd learn a lot, be stronger minded and more appreciative of their freedoms and perhaps not be so divisive and against our county, God and all that's fair and right" is how one put it. I have to somewhat agree with that.
Hoping for a nursing home visit tomorrow. There's some issues I want to address there and things I want to check back on for myself. I whined about wanting to get her a UTI test for over a week and they finally did and of course she had one. Problem is the duration of it and the effects of that. My last visit I noticed her right leg larger than her left and belly swollen a lot for someone who hasn't been eating much. My two therories are fluid needing drained from her lympahtic system due to immobility the last couple days or the beginning of renal failure due to the severe UTI. I know something has to kill us all at some point, just don't want to see her suffer after she's already been through so much with the inhumane lockdowns and such, plus past events there.
They simply do not have the staff to do what needs to be done. I feel this is why they've let me in as her "compassionate caregiver" to alleviate them at least with her for a while. Im' scheduled for 30 minute visits but I'm often there 2.5 hours or so. When I"m there, she's up, talkative, eats good, drinks plenty and is alert. When I'm not I'm told she just lays there. She wouldn't if they'd work with her.
Let's get through this day shall we?

She's a huge turd, difficult pass lol
And yes, thank you to all veterans, my father (RIP) and my partner.
I wanted Air Force after high school, fighter jet and schooling for surgery. Made it through all the bs to be qualified and kept it under the radar. I was 17, mom refused to sign. I got a scholarship and went to college, then dropped out to get married and he turned into a methhead, I taught myself what I do now and got a job. Life sometimes has unexpected bad things for us. To this day I'm pissed off at her for not signing. Wasn't meant to be I suppose but I feel that I needed the discipline and to GTFO out of this area.

Beautiful day here although cold. Clouds starting to roll in but no rain was earlier projected.
Nothing on tap that I'm aware of at the office other than the horrid airstream customer and that huge issue still persisting. I think we'll end up in court. She's mad that she can see the 'uneven texture' of her crappy paint and dents beneath the wrap. She also upset that she can see rivets and bold heads. Seriously? Are people that stupid? Of course you can see those, they stick up and a decal isn't gonna make em not stick up. duh. anyway she's filed a BBB complaint for that very thing and I spent all day yesterday gathering proof against her with photos and compiled a court summary of a sort. In all my 30 years I've never in my life encountered someone like this. Typical "want something for nothing" liberal and thinks they can use any excuse to get it. Sorry for the rant but I've had three anxiety attacks over this heffer.
I do need to call our local Ombudsman today to update him on me being inside the nursing home. He's not been allowed in yet which I do think at this point is breaking the law. Hope today is slow but it does make for a long day.

Good afternoon y 'all.

Gris so very sorry to hear about your furbaby. They become family members and it hurts the heart to lose them.
Tommy - glad to hear you weathered the storm pretty well and all are safe.
Beautiful day here yet again, we're on a summer streak. Wish It'd stay. Spent the day yesterday at the physical therapist, then got my nails sharpened, then off to the house for quick late lunch and was at the nursing home in her room with her until about 5:30. Just weird. All is well and we're shut out, all isn't well and door swung wide open. I was told, however that I'm kinda the aministrator's experimental case. How things work with me might be what determines her allowing others in. I'm classified as "compassionate caregiver". When I'm there she's up and talking and feeding herself. When I"m not, she's just lying there. Not enough staff to go around and not many that she likes enough to do tricks for. Lady in bed next to her isn't social, doesn't speak and they sat her food tray in for supper and it just sat there. Upset me. I'm not allowed to help her or I would have. Whole mess is shitty.
Anyway - speaking of such, the politics are crappy too. A new social media site or two has opened up, and of course, upon entering you find 79 Million other conservatives mad trying to get in the door at once and it shut the site down. I did get in and it's nothing but politics so I showed myself right out.
seems I recall too much of the crying and whining done by liberalst and leftists from the previous election. You can't talk sense into a borned idiot. 2/3 of my family is proof of that.
Have a good day everyone

Good evening, checking in - Gris I hope your fur baby is all right.
On the political front, some recent posts say already what’s on my mind, no further comments needed from me. I’m worried for us all. Figure international issues on the horizon. Saw a news post about Iran’s top dog calling on abides to rejoin nuclear deal.
In other news it’s been like summer here and we’re enjoying it.
Got to have my first in person nursing home Friday afternoon and she was 1000 x better than I had anticipated. Still a dark and bleak situation but was glad to be let in. She was 17 days post covid. I wasn’t allowed in with everyone negative but they have an outbreak of 60 and swing open the door. Makes no sense but it did us both good. I b*#@ed enough to get in . And I’m told I can go back when I want. I’m going back tomorrow.
Have a good night y’all

Cracking up at Tommy. I suspect my guy at home would say the same thing about me. He gets annoyed that instead of just going out in the garage to change my own oil, broke taillight bulb, what have you, I leave it for him. I figure I wash his drawers he can change car oil. I mean it's his living? right? I feed him afterall, fair?
Gris hope your grand feels better soon as well as your SIL Matt. Glad you are enjoying the car.
Nice day again here today and supposed to be all through the weekend and into next week. Locals are relieved after all the previous rain and cold.
I can relate to the dog rolling around in poop, ours just got her another bath last night for the same. I looked out yesterday to see her wiggling in the yard on her back looking happy as can be. I also recall that's where she shit last. She smelled like something dead and rotten that has been crapped on and left in the sun to dry.

I'll bet Canada feels like they're living in the apartment right above a meth lab right now....

I don't get all the hoopla of no masks. I mean yes, wear it if you can't distance. No need for it if you CAN distance. I'm not gonna wear my mask outside at the park, or in my car, etc.
Anyway - enough of that. I have worries for our nation like everyone else but what will be will be and let's not fight about it as a nation.
Absolutely beautiful day here today, 74 and sunny - however I'm in a cave at work with no window. I'll take a couple breaks outside later.
Some good news - was just approved as a "compassionate caregiver" by the nursing home so that I can vist in person with my cousin. Unfortunately, I do think she's dying and it's almost too little too late by the facility. I qualified for this months ago yet the administrator here has made up her own rules. I have written our #2 at DHS, our senator, congressmen etc as well as expressed my upset to the facility. I've provided them with the updated copies of both the CMS and DHS directives with specifically state they comply. They haven't until now.
Have a good day everyone.

Good afternoon.
Like everyone else probably, can't wait until the election is over with and we can get on with it. I dread the aftermath and the additional piles of bs about it.
Sorry for MIA - having issues with nursing home and cousin isn't doing good. They had me upset and anxiety ridden allw eekend and today at the office my owner was really rude about it all. Not been a good day.
Halloween was pretty normal at our house, we never have many goblins but had a few. BF has a big bowl of candy to eat.
In regards to the tankless hot water heaters, I also am in the market for one, kinda know what to get, kinda don't. I have one I feel isn't going to last very long so I'd like to replace it with a tankless then use that 'closet' for a small pantry.
Prayers please for situations on my end and hope everyone has a good evening

Good morning - slow day at work thankfully, just a couple of things to work on and get in the print que. Easy $ for the boss today.
The issues with that airstream and the horrible people has finally come to a close. Their install is complete and he's done fighting with them also. They tried to start more mess and he said "look" and he let it rip on them. Blasted them and put them in their place I'm told by a witness. They admitted what they were trying to do, apologized at the end and we're done with them. I can't stand people like that. They still tried to refute things untill he showed them my folder full of time stamps, job notes, emails and such. Some people are just flat out crazy. On to other things.
Tommy, when my mother passed and I ordered her headstone, I had it made out for "mother and daughter", had all my information engraved except for my date of death and last name. My intentions are to be cremated, and placed next to her cremains with some of me at the beach. Was easier to do at that time when I was already numb from her passing. Seemed logical. At some point I plan to get my obit constructed as well as any photos or music needed for a memorial service. I'd like mine to be a party and not a sad funeral type thing. I hate those. And would rather it not be in a 'facility' such as funeral home chapel etc. I have absolutely no issue with the house of God, but seems those funerary chapels are just dreary. I want to have a happy occasion.
Speaking of dreary, still raining and ugly here from the Gulf, will be 31 tonight. Next weekend we're back up at 71 for the high.

Good morning - ugly and cold and gloomy here again today, rain coming they say. I'm ready to move to a sunnier spot, you never know what's gonna happen weatherwise here. Might have all four seasons in one day.
Didn't want to leave therapy this morning, she had that tens unit in the perfect spot on my SI join. I'm happy it's all helping. It's soooo nice to get up from a chair and just walk. No pain, no pinching, no holding onto something.
I'm with Tommy on avoiding election media. Sick of it all. Sick of the bias and lack of information for one specific side and bashing from the other. Got behind a license plate here a week ago that said "NOMEDIA". I can relate. I took a pic of it but can't find it to post.
I also must get the tires changed on the car. Pulled out from the doc today and didn't even get on it, just pulled out of the parking lot making a right turn and assend of car kept on going.

Good afternoon - has been rainy, gloomy and dreary here for the last few days. Tried to take off the other day to enjoy one last sunny warm day but couldn't. Now its' ugly cold season.
Still battling with NH over stuff, with her having the virus they'rea ll quarantined. She's not taking it well. She finally has felt better, sitting up and I spoke with her last night = first time since Thursday. They refused to let her have her phone claiming "no unneccesary things" in room. SeriouslY? That's breaking the patient rights law. Some fussing and phone calls to the senator, ombudsman and the lady over the DHS Governmental Affairs office or whatever it is, and she has her phone. And now can have floewrs and some holiday decorations, when they previously said no. Of course they want it tomorrow and I"m workin from 7a to 9p. That's why I tried to take them yesterday when I was off.
Busy at work, and stressed but plugging along. That's what ya gotta do, right?
have a great day

Late check in here also. Therapy today was nice, rain not so much. Went from almost 80 today to 50 now. Had a quiet day at home
Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes for my cousin. I could not talk to her today but was told the vomiting had stopped, she ate great at all meals today and held together when they moved her to the covid wing. Said she’s not showing symptoms so far-good news.
They now have 20 residents and 7 staff infected.

I was just informed that my cousin in the nursing home has tested positive for the virus. She's almost 85 and I fear for her. She's depressed, lonely and will now face this even more isolted from those who bring her comfort. Please pray for us, for the staff and other residents who are positive as this is considered on an "outbreak" level at this point.
My emotions are many, anger at the staffer who brought it in (Im sure they feel their own guilt), hurt for her, angry at our politicians for isolating them from us to start with , just a whole lot of things at the moment.
Please, just pray. thank you all

Good morning. Surely I can't be the first one in the door? I'm always last to the party.
Beautiful day here although foggy on the drive in, not much work on my desk so hopefully and easy day. Halfway through my physical therapy routine and I'm happy it's working. So nice the last couple of days to be able to get up, walk or move without pain. It's still tender but soooo much better.
Congrats on the house Mr. and Mrs. Capn . I can relate to the new dishwasher. I love ours and the fact it's not named "Letty". Huge plus lol
Have a great day y'all

Good afternoon everyone. Busy at work today, stressed a bit from work (competitor bashing us issues), and of course, more nursing home issues as of last night. Staff wont' return a call now - off to the Ombudsman again. I'm sure local staff hates me but I will do what I can to make sure they take care of her and not be mean and ugly to her.
headed home straight after work to sit in the chair on the back porch and nothing else. Maybe a ribeye on the grill later.
Regarding age - people are more discretionary with us women. I have still recently been referred to ask "kid" and "youngun" although I'm 52. I feel like I'm 82.
I've been called a lot of things, thus far "old" hasn't been one - except by those constant AARP invites

Good afternoon y'all. Sorry for the MIA - we left town Saturday morning headed to the hills, bout 5 hrs away. I like to go yearly to see the fall colors. Used to be a Vette club run but seems nobody wants to do the fun stuff - actually drive the cars - anymore so I just go. Friday was busy with therapy appt and supposed to been a nursing home visit but was a last minute cancellation due to a positive employee. Fifth time this has happened to us and she is devastated. We did a 'door' visit. The day consisted of other things, getting plants in you name it. Got home Sunday night wore out. Felt crappy Monday so stayed on the couch. Of course, work today when it's beautiful outside. Wally World run after.
Gris good vibes and prayers for your grand on a fast recovery.
Marcus, Congrats on the new job.

Tommy,
I have gotten a good result. Wished I knew it would be that simple, I was thinking arthritis or a hip replacement to fix a bad hip rebuild. I can get up from a chair with no pain, sleep better and walk better. What she does works not on the 'major' muscles so much as the underlying tiny support ones. Plus the tens unit thingie and heated ultrasound. It's a full hour's treatment. I'm only on number 4 but I can tell.

Morning y'all.
Been up and out early enough to see the sunrise, then see the clouds overtake it. Chance of rain due later, from the looks of it more like a guarantee. Just got out of physical therapy, hard to believe I've dealt with this mess for couple of years and therapy could help. My sciatic nerve hurt constantly, when I'd get up, my thigh and groin area would tense up or spasm and I'd bout go down, figured it was hip surgery gone bad. Neurologist referred me to his PT downstairs and after the first treatment I felt better. Turns out to be an overtight piriformis which led to other muscles pulling lower spine around to create pelvic torsion and a sprained sacroilliac ligament. Very simple exercies you really don't think are doing anything until you all of a sudden don't hurt, can walk, can get up with no pain. One of those "why didn't I try this sooner" moments.
Hoping for a slow day today and go home and chill. First nursing home visit tomorrow at 2. Had an hour long call with our Ombusman also, who isn't allowed in either. Very wrong since he's the one that makes sure they're doing their jobs and neglect and abuse isn't happening and protocols are followed. No wonder they don't want people in, they become expsosed for their lack of care giving. He did ask me to report back to him post visit as I think something's brewing
Have a great day y 'all

Very accurate pic indeed.
Good morning all. Hotel reserved for our "fall colors" trip. This used to be a group of Vetters from the club I'm in, but with Joel passing, it all kinda fell apart. Group doesn't do things like this anymore, so I just kept going by myself. Our dinner cruises aren't even "cruises" anymore so I kinda skip most of them.
Had a great conversation with our local Ombudsman (over NEARK nursing homes). Based on the conversation he might be having a word with them. My first visit is scheduled Friday at 1, outdoor, 30 minutes. CMS mandates indoor but he said they're all making up their own rules.
Pretty day here again today, temps due to fall next week, still getting plants in.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Beautiful day here again, I'm inside at my desk in my dungeoun of course. Ton to do the next few days including getting rest of palms and what not situated in the house, visits to Home Depot and Harbor Freight for supplies for such, a nail appointment - can't stand sitting there but if I want to be able to do things then I get it over with, then physical therapy at 11 friday, nursing home visit - finally, only for 30 mins OUTSIDE at 1, then wash clothes and pack then head to Harrison AR Saturday early to Maplewood Cemetery and Hotel Seville, come home late Sunday. MAkes me tired thinking of it all
Gris, getting drunk by onesself isn't always a bad thing.
And, per me re-reading yesterday's notes, my sincere condolences for your loss - I cannot imagine what that must feel like. Prayers

Overdid myself two days in a row so not much here today except holding the patio chair down.
Have a good day y’all

That’s hilarious! And similar to what happened here. I cleaned house and mopped, 4 loads laundry. He decides to (finally) fix the bathtub (claw foot one had a leak). It rained here all day n night. He then decides once he went in there that city sewer is backed up or we have a plug somewhere. In he tracks wet grass, mud, dog sh*t and then some. It’s whisky time for me I’m done

I recall when I worked at the body shop here, we had a Kia or something - not an "expensive" brand and a headlight for that thing was outragous (our cost). I looked up the part and told him and we both couldn't belive it. We charge 25% over on parts, part of how shops do make money, plus the install time, etc. We told customer first in case they wanted to opt for a used one.
Found this article about it also:

Good morning (still have 6 minutes technically)
Pretty day here again but rain from the hurricane due to ruin the weekend outdoor plans.
Didn't watch the debate either, they get me all upset. And then I heard a quote that was allegedly said "Harris administration under the Biden presidency" or something like that.
Those 85 million registered guns might need to be on standy to overthrown the gubmit if this goes down.
Hip therapy seems to be working, I just dont' like getting up that early on my day off to go.
hope everyone has a great day

Was due to get one put in out in the pool house to finish up, but rain due all weekend here. Figures. It's absolutely gorgeous here today, perfect beach/pool day - except I'm at work.
2nd round of physical therapy on my (surgical 3 years ago) hip. Have spinal torsion and sprained sacroilliac ligament they said. Not sure how. She handed me a (lengthy) list of pre-scheduled visits.
Nothing much here today, have a great day y'all

Happy Annivesary!
Beautiful day here, this whole week would be a perfect beach week. Or sit home by an empty pool week.
Not in the office. Nothing to really work on makes for a long day. Am doing a poster design for an Ozzy tribute band, friend is photographer that had just shot the gig and asked for one to use.
Need to run by store after work then home and figure diner out, fold clothes, the usual.

Good morning all
I can relate to that Monday Lisa.
Had a good bday weekend for Arron, he’s quite bothered at turning 50. Has him in a funk all weekend .
Am currently on a table in the physical therapist office for my hip issues. She confirmed what I suspected and then some . Well get on a plan to get me right. Have torsion in the sacroiliac area and a strained ligament etc
Glad to hear insurance took care of you Matt. Hope everyone has a great day

I'm in agreement also on socialism. And have related fears for all of us.
Bob - these previous neighbors were church going, home schooling nice people. However - that 45' motor home sat out in the driveway blocking the views of the street. I was about to turn them in to the city since it hasn't moved and found out my other next door lady did. Said nobody was happy with it. There's a small area where my shop front is that leaves open views from each of our yards. That's where they chose to put their trampoline, basketball goal, etc so all the noice was like coming through a megaphone echoing right into our backyard. And, the kids would climb the trampoline poles and stare into our yard. They purposefully made their backdoor slam loud as possible so they'd know if the "little one" was in or out. The wife as an animal hoarder and they had unruly dogs that chewed the fence, kept getting out, etc. The noise level seriously dropped 95% when they left. 4 kids 4-5 dogs, a stray cat that ruined our car paint, and sprayed in our garage, killed our bunnies and bats, ugh. And looked like Sanford and Son over there. We should've moved to the country but I do not want to be up and down gravel and he didn't either and this house had everything we needed. I should've chose the gravel...
