Dreary and rainy here again today, starting tomorrow it's clearing up then we have sunshine for the next few days if it dont' change again. I was planning to sit home and enjoy our pool this weekend, and being off Monday since its my bday and I just got informed that I will be spending part of that working on my car. Not too thrilled with that . I have enough to do at home. Oh well.
Sad to hear about the Texas shooting. Unfortunately the left has politicized it to help them in their gun takeover efforts. In other news walmart is being hammered for trying to trademark a holiday, Juneteenth, to promote one of their products - red velvet cheesecake ice cream. Unfortunately they took a flavor from an actual black-owned ice creamery to do it with. They're pulling some products. One more in the lineup is Pride ice cream, that one is supposed to be cherry brownie or something like that. More news from the edge of the razor includes State Farm being in hot water over promoting their 3-book series discussing gender to children. Evidently agents were asked to donate the book bundle supplied by GenderCool to local schools. They did, some published to social media their gratitude and the shit hit the fan.

Good afternoon - dreary here, more rain coming. We drove home through two storms late Saturday night. Busy yesterday with things and him working out of town at the body shop my car is at. I rode along and took care of some of my errands in that town. At the office today catching up with stuff.
Trying to nail down the stripe kit on my car. No way am I gonna try to do all that measuring and crap for a one-off just for me when I can buy it for cheap online. The dude I found uses black matte and I prefer satin as satin don't leave finger marks and mess that matte shows. They have the pattern, we have my preferred vinyl. not sure if they'll share their pattern or not. If I have to I can buy their pieces and use our satin and hand cut them with those as my pattern. hope y'all have a good day

I agree and the $11,000 fine and felony record isn’t worth it. It’s happened before and that’s what the previous perp got.

Good evening y’all - beautiful day here , till work called this morning, and texted. 12 years and this is my first week to take off without having to worry about my phone, and there they were lol. Oh well. Had a great day. Drank plenty and played hard, managed to not be sunburnt . Can’t say that bout the gal sitting near us, she was lobstered by noon.
Happy birthday RR1!
I’ve had my bath and started some laundry, Arron is about to make us some grilled cheese sammiches, bout to go out on the balcony for the sunset. Looks nice from the 19th floor. I’m still in shock this condo was this nice AND there’s real patio furniture out here . Most of the time you get cheap uncomfortable chairs and condo don’t look all that great in person. This one looked better than the photos
I managed to get some eclipse photos and then last nights moon rise as well . I don’t have a fancy camera just a small point n shoot but they turned out nice
Oh, and got to fly my beach kite - a 26-ft black octopus :D

In the pics the first two are the moon from last night. Not long after it came up and it was very red the next is about 5 mins after it was more orange. The following are eclipse photos from the night before . The yellow one at end was as it was rising before the eclipse

Good afternoon y’all. Marcus congrats on the sale. Now to order that 2023 z07 :D beautiful pictures Tommy ! I want to go there one day.
We decided to take a last minute beach trip we’re here at Panama City Beach. Got here Saturday. Weather and water are gorgeous and I got lucky on the condo it’s very nice. I want to just stay here , nice quality furniture, beautiful counters and the living room floor is some sort of highly shiny marbly stuff I want. Even the balcony is furnished like you would your home, nice wicker and metal with big cushions and rugs. This never happens. I will definitely rent this unit again.
I personally think every Monday should be spent like this

Tee, welcome to Arkansas, where we go from winter to dog days of summer all in one afternoon. You're about 5 hours west of me. We've set the heat record two days in a row, breaking the 140-something record that was in place. Slow day here today, have given out some quotes, sent one for production that's about it. I'm ready to get home, have dinner, finish my laundry and get my bag and the truck packed for the trip. Leaving out about 6 in the morning.

I didn't see what he used in his video for sealant, nor did I know he had a website.
I have already placed my order on the ebay site and the "set" (both lenses) together is cheaper than what he has here. I got both lenses plus both gaskets, shipping and tax for $313 (Taiwan). Wasn't aware there was a different option
I also had sent a message to him with the "contact seller" button on Ebay but never did hear back, so am wondering if my order has even been processed.

Matt - I've restored them once already, they're shot. And with the accident one outer lens is broken although the rest of it is fine.

Andy - I did not know that. I figured Taiwan was no different. I went ahead and ordered these, not sure what he was using for the 'sealant' but I will need to get my hands on that too. Corvette Mods showed an option to order that as well, but RLSebring's Ebay site didn't.

Good morning - another hot sunny day of instant summer here. We broke a 140+ year record yesterday, supposed to do that again today they say. Worries me what the rest of the summer will be like. August will be miserable. Pool will feel like a bathtub, ick.
I have a van to work on today and some window perfs for another guy, neither is be quick about answering emails. They got me today and tomorrow then I'm out for a week.
Tee, yeah I think I can do the stuff myself or Arron can. I have the lenses in my ebay cart, plus the gaskets, each is sold separately, but there's a sealant/glue you need also. I didn't see it. I've messaged the guy to see if he will do combined shipping and has the glue for sale also, so far not heard back yet. I kinda need these asap as most of that work will be done while we're gone I think.

Good morning, hot as all get out already when I left for work this morning. We went straight from damp cool spring to hot as heck dried out summer in a day here. Plants are thirsty and dog gets hot, time for her a shave I'm thinkin.
not much happening here , allright by me. Have given out some quotes and such we'll see where that goes.
Tee, yes we were going to relens ourself. I will just order them from that RLSebring dude who started them, off his ebay site. you heat them to break the seals, then remove old lenses, apply new sealer and gasket. You can send him your cores and it's $450 labor on top of the parts which is close to that. Still cheaper than a new pair of lights. I realize ppl dont' need to work for free but for $450 labor I figure we can spend time on it ourselves. He has a video published to show how it's done. He claims his are oem style replacements, not actual oem but close as you'll get. Same with gaskets. I'd rather spend more and get correct fitting replacements instead of cheap chinese that wont' work.

I was just getting told that on FB too. Seems there's a RLSebring that started making these and they are allegedly OEM replacement. Not actual OEM but close as you can get. I read over on Cf in a thread I found where someone said the knockoffs scratch very easy and don't fit well. This original dude tho says his isn't made Cheap Chinese then at the bottom of his sales page it says made in Taiwan...
I need one new headlight for the car, but will look stupid with other faded one. For that $800 cost of one I can spend half that and refresh them both. The rest of it isn't busted.

Question - I put this in Tech also but in case nobody sees it, anybody know about theses things? I know there's a dude on CF who sells on ebay claiming his are OE (RSSebring), but these don't look any different to me and are cheaper. The ebay listing claims his aren't made in China then goes on to say they're made in Taiwan -

anyone have any experience with these?

Mine have had it and thinking of ordering these instead of the entire light. The rest of my light is fine.
thoughts?

good morning, beautiful day here, "record highs" they're hollering for this week. Got word last night to book a last minute beach trip, I'm all in. Have condo narrowed down to 3 choices, I sent to him and told him to pick. The week after prices increase substantially just because it's "season". Unfortunately the "season" prices are at least a grand over what they were just last summer. I could easily get a 2br with nice large balcony for $1500 and have even found for $1200 but now that same one is closer to $2,000. FJB is all I know to say bout that. Nothing much happening here, owner is on vaca this week where I will be next week. I'll wave when I Pass him on the way home.

I’ve been in my yard working till right before dark. I hurt all over. Arron has been sick he caught what I had but still helped me. He left for a bit and showed back up with me a fifth of knob creek and him some beer. A shower after a day of yard chores was nice. 50 bags mulch out Flower beds weeded, things trimmed, more plants planted, yard mowed, trash gathered. Now the house needs cleaned . Never ends.
A close friend had heart surgery day before yesterday just now heard he’s all right. Y’all have a good evening and happy Mother’s Day to yours

It rained enough here that it filled my pool the rest of the way up. Farmers here are struggling. I'm about sick of it too. Why can't the rain be spread out evenly throughout the year, and leave out the storms and tornadoez please, thank you.
Slow day at work here, had a couple things to handle and those are done already. just waiting on time to go home. I need a nap

good afternoon, started off rainy and ugly and sun is trying to come out and weekend is shaping up to be nice. 90's due in next week they say. It really needs to hold off a week or two more so I can get my mulch out. This sinus crud knocked me back a bit.
Picked up a rental today for a little bit, a Chevy spark. It's roomy to be so small but interior is loud with engine noise. Sounds like it's overwound when you take off. Just how those cheap little cars are but beats Flinstoning it. I'll swing by the grocery store since I have wheels and get a few things before heading home.
Y'all have a great day

Good morning Gris. Same here, full sinus crud still, although better. We've had rain so yellow stuff everywhere, maybe the air will clear for a bit and we can all feel better.
Thanks Matt for the info will check into it.
Sun is trying to come out today but we do have rain scheduled for the next 5 days . Of course this is Arkansas so it changes on the quarter hour.
I have one job pending at the office waiting on an approval and another the lady is trying to get her crap together. Boss going on vaca Thursday. I'm beyond ready to go somewhere and relax.

good afternoon
Matt, if you have the number to the diminished value outfit please send.
Rainy here today and starting Saturday I came down with something. I hadn't felt good most of the week, not slept well, and stress on top of it, and I guess my immune system tanked and allergies got the best of me. Its turned into a full blown head/chest cold. All my big plans for yard work this weekend have been postponed. It was all the energy I could muster to shower and get dressed. I hate this crud. In other news, one corner of our back porch seemed to be sagging, the metal above the post looked wrinkly and wavy, so figured the wood inside was rotten. Sure enough so Arron spent yesterday getting that all fixed and now it looks good like nothing ever happened. "other" guy's insurance has arranged me a rental car but can't get one till Wednesday. If they went with the cheaper company here it would be here sooner. This is stressing me. I hate insurance companies.
I need to plan a vacation -

good afternoon - another beautiful day here, unfortunately I'm stuck indoors in front of a computer at work
Yes, Marcus it was the GS that got hit. It was the kid's first wreck, he felt bad and he was polite. His insurance finally called me when I got home last night around 7 to admit fault and then told me a rental and what not would be my responsibility. I lost my ever loving shit. No, it won't. I refuse to be inconvenienced by their customer's lack of paying attention. Period. I told her I had an attorney on standby if need be or my company could sue theirs i didn't care how it went. She tried to be a bit snarky and I told her flat out to lose her attitude that I am not the one to get sideways with. She tried to tell me I had to use one of "their" shops also to which I informed her that no, I do not. I will use my shop and my choice of parts as it's MY car and I am the victim. I have worked at a body shop and am familiar with the process, from body work to dealing with insurance companies and I will have MY car fixed to suit ME.
Speaking of which, the shop my car is at, he pays Arron to do a lot of his work and I have been told that "we" will be starting the teardown of my car tonight. I packed my get-dirty clothes but honestly am in no kind of mood to be doing any of that sort of mess. I'm off tomorrow and would rather go spend a c-note on a good bottle of bourbon and sip on that a bit instead with a good steak.

Good afternoon, beautiful here, 70 and not a cloud in the sky.
Must be one over my head, however. Went to get my nails done last night and normally I park in the back row, but this time the front spot of the row was open so I pulled on forward. Came out, took three steps out the door and saw a white truck pull from the spot next to me and took the corner of my car's front end with him. Hit me in the worst spot. Looked like my whole front end was shoved over. Bumper, lights, fender etc. And, am having issues with both his insurance and mine. I have no rental coverage although I asked for it and thought I was paying for it so that will have to be sorted out. His insurance says they can't get me one till they get hold of him, determine IF he's at fault or not, (police report says so and so does the driver) and then it still might be a week and they're just doing everything they can to jerk me around. Told me if I'm out money on rides or whatever to save receipts for reimbursement. I told her I"ll go buy a brand new vehicle and save the ticket and turn it in to her so she can get me paid for it. crickets. Allstate and State Farm issues have confounded me today

good morning - cool today here but sunny, it will be winter tonight. It was fall with rain yesterday morning then spring with sun yesterday afternoon. Wednesday will be spring again.
Worked in yard planting flowers and junk from 9am Friday till sometime Sunday afternoon late. Then ran to next town bought a new bbq, picked up takeout and came home. Put old bbq on FB marketplace and some dude hauled it off about 930. Good way to get rid of your junk. My weekend has been a blur, and yard work not even done yet. Still have 50 bags mulch to put out with preen and do some weeding and yard will need mowed. We got 3.5 inches of rain and didn't even need .25 of it. Ground is saturated, farmers are upset and if it rains again we're all afraid the trees will float out and uproot. We're sick of it. But next up is a month of drought so whaddya do?
Hope everyone had a good weekend

good morning -
rained here earlier, looks like sun is trying to peek out. Supposed to have been 80 and sunny Friday, Saturday and Sunday but now it's changed to one nice day, then cloudy and windy Sat and rain Sun and Mon. Then on my work days it's all nice and sunny. I thin I'm about to change my schedule.
Managed to get approval on the pool people truck, and another trailer for someone else, and should have approval on another truck today. That'll keep owner busy. I'm not doing crap tomorrow if I can help it. Prob try to get flowers planted Saturday

good morning - I can't possibly be the first one up today -
Gloomy and cooler here today, rain moving in next couple days, prepping for what looks to be a beautiful weekend. Hope so, I have plants to plant and a lawnchair to sit in.
Office time will be occupied by the pool people today, have a truck for her that has to be okayed by end of day as she's leaving town and contractor needs his truck, and then she's sending another. She needs a new logo too and her "marketing team" isn't making her happy and one I've done she likes so will work on that tomorrow perhaps. Have another truck today to finish also from a "design firm" who apparently know nothing about design work. I'm having to fix it and rework it so about 4 hours will be added to their bill. Should've just let me do what I do and be done with it. Might add a couple more hours just because they're rude. PITA time, ya know. Trying to wind things down on the business end for Oneta also, got her Medicaid renewal packet in this weekend, sent that off yesterday just put "deceased" at the top of it and attached a DC. When lawyer gets back from the beach I'll see what's up with her house and try to get rid of that headache.
Ya'll have a good day

good afternoon - pretty day here, sunny but only about 60, warming trend has (finally) started. Some areas here have had an excessive amount of hail and one with flurries just day before yesterday. It was summer yesterday afternoon, it was winter tornado season Friday with softball hail in most places. that's Arkansas for you.
Kept busy all weekend with trip to Mississippi, then attic and garage clean out Sunday. Ran an errand yesterday then tried to relax outside but that was disrupted by a HAVAC/Electrical dude first - turns out I take off on a weekend and Arron buys a permanent generator for the house. Guy was there to start install on it. Then that afternoon for four solid hours straight the neighbor tries to mow his gf's yard next door with the shittiest mower there is. Horrific noise and he finally quit when I had no more sun to enjoy. Figures.
Busy day at work here I have a trailer, one truck, another on the way, and a couple signs to get going on. Y'all have a good day

Good morning - sunny here but cooler. Slow day at work and that's allright by me, not in the mood for much. Have a guy with a trailer due by here for a quote so we'll see if he shows. Pool lady not answering my emails. Got my tax checks ready to mail just need stamps. Heading out to Mississippi tonight with a friend, going to pick her mother up and bring her back for Easter week. I'm too tired to go places but getting away from here might do me some good. Will be back noonish Saturday. Of course when I'm home it'll rain as usual. That'll force me indoors where I can clean out the attic and garage and haul some junk to Goodwill.
Y'all have a good day

good morning, same here muggy, thunder and such. Stormed last night and then the naders are due in about the time I get off work this evening. Im so beyond sick of tornado threats and crap. Had more than enough around here.
Funeral was nice last night, not very many there of course she was 86 so not many left. Was disappointed in the family turnout, and only 2 people sent her flowers. funeral director said people just don't do that sort of thing anymore. He said people don't even send cards nowadays. We didn't get any. The flowers I got for her ended up very pretty and the table looked amazing. The arrangement was a lot larger than what looked like in the photo I saw. It still wasn't what I ordered or expected, no real color and it was more of a big bushy shape instead of tall, spring like and elegant that I'd asked for but they were very beautiful. I shared some flowers from the table with some relatives before heading home and one cousin helped herself to even more. She even took some of the 'butterflies' that were in there, only leaving me with 3 out of two dozen. I don't understand what made her think that was allright. Her and her husband and her sister and her husband came over after for food and she grazed, her husband did too. no card, no flowers, didn't bring food, but took . Please forgive me for being annoyed - anyone else have one like that in the family? Either way I did divide that huge arrangement between the two of the women before they left and sent them off with a bouquet of their own leaving me a nice one also. cleaned up the mess and went to bed. Much more to do still.
Hope y'all have a nice day and keep yourself under the desk with a book on your head for the storms coming around later if you're in our path of them.

Good morning, happy birthday Marcus! Hope your day is awesome.
Mild flow at work today, leaving early to set up for funeral and pickup a few things prior. Some relatives just messaged about coming to our house after, first I'd heard of it. None of them have really said much till today. One more thing for me to worry with. One cousin tripping over herself to send food and flowers to a friends friend funeral but not her own family one. how nice. Just saw the $500 funeral flowers I ordered also and they are about $75 worth and ugly as all get out. All green and mauve and zero spring color or easter themed like I had asked. She'd have hated them. I have a credit at a local shop and will go by there for come cuts to add and a tall vase at home I will redo the whole thing. Beyond stressed at this point. hope everyone had a good weekend, I stayed busy working in yard cleaning up, working on back patio throwing out and cleaning up, and trying to get caught back up on things in the house too such as cleaning and laundry. I'll get dug out eventually. next up is planting flowrs and going through all her stuff that's in my attic as well as all her things that are piled up in my garage. I'll have a giant load for the Goodwill folks.

good morning, gloomy here, would love to stay home and sleep but trying to get some of my days made up - bills don't stop ya know.
Good job for you Tee helping that dude out, very kind indeed.
I have three pending jobs here and none of them will respond to my emails. One sent me crappy art so I can't finish his, the other lady don't know what she wants really so I'm just trying to get her nailed down to an idea. Whatever we do for this vehicle the rest of her fleet will be like this so she needs to make sure it's what she wants. Another lady needs a couple banners but wrong art was sent for those also. I won't be here Monday and not all of Tuesday so today would be nice.
Hope everybody has a great day

good morning, beautiful day here a tad cooler, winter will be here again Friday and Saturday.
I'd like to do solar at our house but am told by too many that the cost doesn't outweigh the benefit as the payment for the system is as much or more than the standard utility bill otherwise. Unless of course you can afford to pay outright cash and we cannot. And was told that by the time you paid them off you'd have to do it all over again as they'd be obsolete, etc. I'd still like to have them though.
I too am thinking of later days when I need to start purging. I always hate to see when an older person does this and loads up dumpsters. I always think of the mid century modern things that are of great value that go in there as most people don't realize what they are or how scarce and valuable those things are. And, for the person getting rid of things, it's on their mind more so that their time is limited. Must be depressing.

Good evening, Oneta passed last night at 5:57 and it wasn’t easy for her. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. She’s better now , my heart is broke . It will be a relief in a way but will leave a void also I just hope I made her happy. The staff that worked with her have all shared great stories. Funeral is Tuesday 5-7 . Thank you all for your condolences.
Stormed here last night with hail and loud thunder , I was told - I was worn out and slept through it. Rain today then turned out pretty, got funeral stuff finished up, bank, flower shop etc and groceries stocked back up. Will get back at work tomorrow

Good afternoon, gloomy here but the weekend was gorgeous. I’ve been sitting with Oneta at the Hospice house. Don’t look like too much longer. Told crew at work they are on their own this week and emailed a couple of clients. There’s more important work to do here.

Trucks are the high dollar bringers around here. A $250 truck is now ten grand. "the market" they claim. Bullshit. I'm looking for a used Rover for me and yes I want a supercharged one. Not a new one, but an older model. Long as it's in good shape I'll drive it till it falls apart around the wheels.
Oneta is still holding out for some reason bless her heart I hate seeing her suffer. Preliminary funeral plans are made, obit wrote, pics and songs chosen, urn chosen - now to just wait.
Looking like and hoping like a slow day at the office. It's pretty out but cold, storms blew through last night and disrupted some junk. Two years ago this week we had a horrible tornado that wrecked the town. So over mother nature, she needs a midol.

Some come to arkasas also - careful swimming outdoors.
Cloudy here, storms moving in, tornado warnings already issued, batten down the hatches -
Hope everyone has a good day - slow at work so far but a class A motor home and a pickup due in and pending approval on a big van. installer helper quit/fired I was told so that should add some workload to somebody.

good morning - sun is out here again we're all happy about it but it's cold now. Too late I already drug a bunch of plants out and lows are around the mid-upper 30s. Petunias and things should do allright, we'll see.
thanks for the words of comfort. I try to let her choose but she ended up putting me in the same spot. She wants to get better but didn't want the procedure to make her better yet didn't want hospice either. I asked her last night about a nasal feed tube and she agreed. Doc was supposed to call me back yesterday and didn't so if/when he calls today I'll tell him that. I did tell nurse last night. Turns out also she prepaid a funeral in 2014 so I'm due a partial refund on what I paid. I did add some things but it was nice to know she chose pretty much what I did except she chose no service so I did add that part. I'll get my $1300 check and take them one for $760 instead to cover the service, memorial book, and extra death certs.
Looking to be a slow day around here a the office, still on hold for one van I need the last piece of art for, and got word from the pool people I have a Silverado to do next. Y'all make it a good one

good morning - cooler and dreary here, one job on a complete for a xl mercedes high rise van on hold due to customer not being able to give me art I need. Otherwise ready to print. Ugh. Boss on vaca this week, home with his special needs son, mom out of state visiting other son so couldn't print it anyway.
Thank you all for prayers, still waiting on doc to call. nervous. I'm split between decisions. Marcus, she is able to talk with me and communicate - I was with her for 2.5 hours after work last night - she wants to get better but says no to the procedure. The other option is hospice and she won't get better. At least with the peg tube there's a shot at it but she still says no. I can't win. And I'm not comfortable playing God. I want doc to call so I can set up a meet with him in her room to have him help. At this point I'm voting for hospice then she can have her coke or whatever she wants, but she will end up with pneumonia and die. the peg tube would allow nutrition and perhaps her get better, if she comes through the procedure okay. She has heart failure (EF 25-30 out of a normal 60) and pneumonia now so thats a risk. I'm not qualified to make this call.
Getting taxes done tonight so at least will have that off the schedule, then worry about writing that check to the gubmint. Gotta do my part for everybody that don't want to work.

good afternoon - looks like everybody stayed busy over the weekend with things.
friday I got up to come to town for stuff and ended up at the ER with Oneta back up there, then into a room at 9pm and it's been downhill ever since. Just talked to the doc and it's either a peg tube and see if she gets better or move to comfort care. Neither option is pretty. Doc asked me to talk to her tonight to see what she says if she'll talk to me.
Weather was absolutely beautiful Saturday although windy, we worked in the yard, still a lot to do but a lot was done, went up to the hospital, then grilled a tomahawk steak. Sunday was even more beautiful so we took a day to dnbfs - ended up getting the Harley out for a cruise. slow day at work, hospital later - same stuff different day with me lately. I've got some difficult decisions to make that I'm not comfortable making so prayers requested for me and her. I preplanned and prepaid her funeral and flowers Friday just in case.

No, do not answer. If your local PD has an 'internet crimes' division, report it to them and block the email and phone numbers so they cannot contact you.
Nursing home called me to say they received Oneta, went into detail about her bedsores and what not and of course, tried to lay blame on the hospital. BS, sick of it - after the tornado, she had no bedsores, the new facility didn't do their job and she's diabetic so she got them fast but she wasnt in a hospital when she got them. I'm bout to piss someone off tomorrow. I told them I'd be there tomorrow to see her, I plan to ask to have bandages removed so I can photograph them for comparison.

Beautiful perfect day here today and I'm stuck at work. Of course when I'm off tomorrow it will be storming and cooler. Figures. every freakin year. Oh well. I need to change my schedule I reckon.
Marcus - my aunt got scammed like that. Some company offered to pay her to put a soft drink wrap on her car sent her a cashier's check - but what it actually was, the bank said, was a type of note that gives them access to what's in your account. She was cleaned out of her social security check plus some. I never heard if it got worked out or not, I guess it did, but I do wraps and they know that and they asked me and I told my cousin this was a scam and she did it anyway. Don't feel bad about it, scammers are getting smarter and more slick. They troll Craiglist and Marketplace and such looking for people to take advantage of. The bank either won't accept, or they accept then charge back or use a non legit third party escrow service, or buyer will pressure you into a wire transfer and be gone leaving out out of money. And, by then you have signed over your car so they have your car for the cost of a tow truck. Never accept a cashier's check unless they bring it in person and can go with you to your bank to cash it, or it's done bank to bank transfer. Or cold cash and you meet at a bank to have bills verified at the bank as authentic.
In other news, Oneta will be let loose from the hospital today, I'm apprehensive, doc noted it and is including some particular notes in his discharge instructions. She checks out on vitals, no bacteria, no infections, just a weaker heart and woundcare so there's no reason for her to be there taking up a bed. I will go check on her tomorrow.

Good morning - slept like the dead last night - direly needed.
Beautiful day today, supposed to be spring the next two days. Oneta passed her swallowing test so as promised I'll take her a coke tonight as well as a green fedora style hat and a shamrock plant for St. Pat's day. Would like to go to the park and get a walk in since it'll be nice also. Sun sets at 7 now so might do that before going to the hospital. I have a doc appt at 1, would like to just not come back today and come back Friday. Come to think of it, I just might do that.
