Doctor who saw me said everything looks good. BP a little high. I told her if she wasn't so pretty, it would have been lower.
Walked Chipper on the boardwalk today, took Dawn to Save a Lot and Family Dollar, having cheeseburgers tonight. Chipper will like that!

Well, if your Doctor lady is as cute and petite as my companion's doctor, I can only agree she might raise your B/P . Looking back, his B/P was quite a bit higher than normal when he met her. Naturally he said naught due to the fact I was sitting right there. 2lol

Thanks everyone. Today was good, maybe because we were able to get out for a few hours. We both got our haircut and a nice lunch. Surprising what a difference that has made in Barb's mood. And probably mine, too : ). Sweet dreams to all.

Well Hi there! Looks to be a pleasant day here, albeit a cool one, only warming to 38 by 4 p.m.. I want Dawn to call her primary Doctor's office in Holland when they open to see if they can work her in somewhere to take that staple out of her forehead that was overlooked yesterday, when the nurse in the Neurologist's office took her stitches out.

Other than that, I have no other big plans, except maybe move a clock on a wall, so I can fasten our new coat rack and storage organizer to the wall.



Funny story about this coat rack. I had all the pieces counted for assembly, and when I got to the center assembly of the back supports, I was missing a little nut to complete that assembly. I looked all over, on my desk, file cabinet, crawled around searching the floor for anywhere it could have rolled. Had Dawn searching too. Was about ready to give up, when Dawn asked "Did you look on the window sill?" There it was! Then I realized I'd lost the bolt that the nut went on. So I looked all over again to no avail. Called the maintenance man, Randy, and showed him what I needed, so he went to the maintenance building, and found a bolt and nut that would work. I sat down at my desk, and there, on a black colored area of my mouse pad, was the little black bolt! Randy and I laughed and laughed. Then he helped me finish the assembly.

About my day:

The day was going along rather well until,

Snowden's son, posted on Facebook that his mother / our dear friend has left this life. Yes, it was expected. Her death leaves a huge vacancy in so many lives.

Joyous, going to miss Snowden very much. She left this world about the same time ISH did two years ago now.

I will move some of her threads to her memorial section in the next few days.

I do need to know her full name and her birthdate (the date may be in her profile I will check) She will go on our Memorial Wall. I know her name is Marianne Hart but do not know her maiden name.

Had a phone call from my oldest son Chris yesterday. He was in town here with his friend Lee. Lee was getting his taxes done and Chris asked if I could meet up with him on Church street . We would meet at the gas station there. So I drove over there which was on the same side of town we live on. That would be the south side of town, saw him waiting for me and he got into the car and we parked there at the gas station and had a wonderful chat together. Took some pictures of him to. We could only talk about 10 to 15 minutes and then he was going another place with is friend. Lee went to see his mom in town also. But it was great to see my son again. I hope to see him again around Easter time as well. Make my whole day complete.

Margie, I know your feeling. I have four sons and one daughter.
They all live nearby, but seeing them is sporadic. Still, we do
chat on the phone. My youngest lives in my trailer park, but
we don't see each other often. It is comforting to know I can
walk a little way and get a hug.

My day:
One load of laundry
I may go to the $ Tree, if I can't find the sympathy cards I KNOW I have.
I seem to misplace everything I need. I recall preaching to my third son
about putting things, mainly his car keys, in the same place always and
he would know where to find them. It doesn't seem to apply to my misplacing stuff.

I did find the Christmas cards I had intended to send out. Not finding them near Christmas, I bought more. Now I have plenty for 2018, unless I lose them before next December.

Pink is supposed to calm people.
I appreciate that it softens the damage to my skin which I attribute to aging and gardening in sunlight. Occasionally, I remember to slather on sunscreen and wear a brimmed hat, but usually forget.

Glad, I either missed or forgot about your sister.
What's the problem?

Margie, I'm curious. Why do your posts duplicate themselves ?

OH, topic!

My day:
If I accomplished anything, it eludes me.
I did ramble around on FB, read Snowden's obituary, left a post on her FB timeline.
I was doing dishes and thought of something to tell her and suddenly remembered, I can't.

joyous said "thought of something to tell her and suddenly remembered, I can't."

Sadly, that may happen from time to time. I'm happy we had Snowden as long as we did, but she was getting tired and frustrated, and I'm sure, in pain. She's free from all that now. We can strive to be as good a person as she was.
Took Dawn to a meeting, and she'll go to lunch with the girls afterward. Went to Save a Lot and purchased some banananas, couple boxes of cereal, milk, 3 boxes of garlic instant potatoes (love 'em!), 2 containers of cool whip, a box of mini corn dogs, box of mini cheeseburgers, bag of orange chicken, bag of meatballs, and a bag of chicken nuggets. Cost 41.36. Had $43 in my checking account.
Had a bowl of pudding, and will take a nap with Chipper.

My day:

Ironed for my Polish lady.
She will be 101 Feb. 19th.

I finally was able to deposit our recyclables in the huge dumpster available at Township office nearby. I had tried twice before, only to find it jam-packed and some rude people had deposited their stuff on the ground.
I stopped at a corner shop to buy cheese for my son.
Came home to Chicken noodle soup (Homemade).
Let Angel out twice. While she enjoyed the outdoor time, I cleaned a bit in my son's bathroom. (Just accumulated dust on items given to him by friends.)

That coat rack is only 24 inches wide, Spice.
Today, we went to the food pantry in Dorr. The North-South corridor was nasty, limiting speed to 40 to 45 mph. but the East-West roads were decent, so coming home, I drove out of our way a bit, so I could travel South on the expressway, which was pretty clear . Traffic was moving along at 70 to 75 mph there.
Received a package in the mail- had ordered an earring rack, earring backs, and a couple air ferns for Dawn. She seems quite happy with them.

I went to the bank.
I visited four of my five children.
Short visits, but happy to spend a little time with each and their spouses or children. I didn't see the youngest, but we spoke on the phone. He lives within walking distance.
Also spoke by phone with a niece in Washington state. She revealed test results that she has Parkinsons. She seems to be taking it in stride. A very well balanced woman. Not the best word to use in speaking of Parkinsons as balance becomes an issue.

Dawn left to go to a meeting about 10 this morning. After the meeting, she was going to go see a movie with Fred. Then go over to his house. I warned her not to stay the night, but she's not home yet.....
I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk today, went to Shopko to buy some Pepsi, came home, changed the light bulb in one of the ceiling fans, which is no easy task, with my balance like it is, cut up some chicken for Chipper, for supper (I get him boneless thighs), ran the dishwasher, took Chipper out again, watched some golf on TV. That pretty well sums up my day.
