I've had a busy day so far.

Had my generic wheaties for breakfast., Downloaded and installed updates on my Win 7 Desktop, installed an update on my Win 10 laptop, took Chipper for a productive walk down the sidewalk here along the next apartment complex, took my monthly shower, and did my weekly shave.  Bought some garlic and herb marinated tenderloin at 9.99 a pound, baked it to an internal temp of 160°and will be going out later with an old college friend..  Have a good day all!

Good morning all. Sorry I haven't been around of lately. Just taking it easy here. Not much going on either. Going to have a friend take me to the store tomorrow. My youngest son Jason dog has been sick with kidney problems, she is now 13 years old. I sure hope and pray the medicine he got her from the vet did the job. Suppose to be very hot here Fri, Sat, Sun and Monday. Not looking forward to the heat wave of 90 to 100 degrees here. Bought a window fan the first of the month for the kitchen and it is a double window fan. Got it at Aldi's for a good price and since our air conditioner doesn't go that far, it keep the kitchen very cool now.

I took Chipper to the boardwalk, where we had a nice walk. Chipper got petted a few times. (He loves the attention.) We saw a few other dogs out too. (Chipper loves people, but doesn't like other dogs.) If we get too close to other dogs, I have to calm Chipper down, because he gets excited, wanting to charge at the other dog, and he has a type of asthma attack. We were almost back to the car, and Chipper decide to plop down under one of the tables . A lady we know came by and said hi, Chipper recognized her voice and got up to go over and get petted. Then he promptly laid down under another table. I sat there with him a bit, and then coaxed him back to the car. We went home. I had some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and cut up a little tenderloin for Chipper. I don't plan on doing much else today. It's almost nap time now.

Margie, I also heard that we're expecting a heat wave.
My concern is for the people who have to work outside in the heat.
In winter I worry about them out in the cold.

Good evening all. Finally after 4 days of a heat wave here it's now over with. Now we get rain from Tues till next Monday. Been saying it might flood here. What's next? John mowed the lawn the other day and took him 3 hours since he had to fix the push mower and charge the riding lawn mower battery but it's done now. Stayed inside most of the day here on Sunday and Monday because of the heat. Poor air conditioner and fans have been working overtime. They need a break.

WE had our heat wave too, then enormous rainfall last night.
Today was lovely. I picked beans, also lettuce. Walked a few
miles(?) or so it seemed. But no pain today as there was last time.

Garden is beginning to produce now. I am happy!

If you have facebook there are new pictures on the Glad E Olah Gardening Ideas page. Haven't had chance to get them here yet for it is much harder to post pictures on Shout.

Sorry I haven't been here for a while. I got back to Canada, got moved into a house, got internet and was going to reopen my zetaboard. However then I discovered that zetaboard was going to merge with Tapatalk and after the horror stories I heard of what Tapatalk did to you Yuku, I had to make a plan B. So aside from getting settled, I pretty much had to figure out where I was going to host a new board. But we got things figured out and everything is going swimmingly.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Mornin' all! The longest day- sounds like a good name for a movie.

Oh my. Cool outside here this morning, but hot inside, as the wind is so still.

Rain is on the way,

so they say,

about later today,

but what the hey

it'll be okay.

Leaving now, to take Chipper for a little walk!

I had a sugar drop down to 80 about 4 pm yesterday.  No I had not eaten right during the day was busy running errands and only had the diabetic breakfast drink.  There were some left over hotdogs in frig and I got two and warmed them in microwave and two slices of bread and in about 30 minuets I was ok.  Only problem after I have one of those sugar drops I am done in for the rest of the day.  I was able to cook a decent supper a bit later but the dishes are still in the sink.

Today I am having cereal.  I start picking up and dropping kids off at 9:30.  College student needs to go to library for a test for summer class.  (On line from Mizzou but needs to be a the local library).  Today is the last day of summer school for the girls and they will need picked up at 10.  

A lot has been going on in my daughter's life lately.  Long long story but she was cut back on her hours and has to settle for a new job with a local transit company (one that transports seniors and handicapped).  The pay is NOT good but it is a job.  She could not support her children on just a few hours a week even though the hourly wage was better. She will get 40 hours with this new job.  But it is not flexible and she will not be able to get off as much to run kids here and there.  I will need to help as much as possible.  She told her new employer she is a breast cancer survivor with monthly appointments in St Louis.....he told her to let him know as soon as possible when the appointments are and he will work it out.....but running kids here and there may not be as possible.  So there are three dental appointments for July 3rd I will be taking the girls etc.  

Rhylie (grandson still does not have his driver's license)  He says he cannot afford to drive so this year he will be living in an apartment sponsored by Mizzou.  There will be 4 boys living there and the rent is $500 a month each.  The utilities are covered and his student loan will continue to pay for room and board....eating meals at the university.  There is also a shuttle bus for him when needing transport in the area.

Oldest granddaughter turns 16 in Sept.  She wants to get a job and buy a car.  I hope that works out.

The middle girl will be 15 next February and the youngest just turned 13 on the 8th of June.  They are growing up so fast!

Please pray for my daughter and her family.  I will help as much as I can. I was wanting to start a "Go Fund Me" page for a love gift to help her while she adjusts to a low paying job but felt like there are others in her same situation and I just don't want to beg for help.  The best thing is for people to pray that God will help her.  Her church will help her some.

Have a good day everyone. I am about to get going around here.

Hello again, Spice!
I hope your internet thing works out.

2Anne, isn't it great to have the house to yourself sometimes?

Aye, such a poet is our Lightfoot.

:pray: for your daughter's problems, Glad.

I washed my towels, showered, went with my oldest son to his bank to take care of a funds issue. Back home I picked enough beans to freeze 3 quarts. Saw my youngest son and his little dog . A down day for this son as he was missing his dad who died a little over a year ago.

I'm especially saddened by our loss of a brilliant man, Charles Krauthammer. If we have little problems, we may well recall how this man lived a full life in spite of being paralyzed and in a wheelchair from his youth. May he rest in peace.  r2

Joyous thank you so much for the continued prayers about my daughter. She will be driving today....the first two days she was learning the ropes. She still will have her instructor along.

If we are free of storms this afternoon I will take the kids out for lunch. Working a couple hours this morning(actually I should have already been there but slept in)

Slept in? Glad! Tell me it isn't so!
Seriously, You're entitled to that.
I find that since I moved, and it's just Chipper and me, I'm sleeping in often.
Took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk this morning, picked up some U.S. commodities from Community Action, and now I have some Turkey tenderloin in the oven for Chipper. I hope he likes it, because it's half the price of the beef tenderloin that he likes.

I'm sorry your daughter is struggling like that Glad. It doesn't hurt to try with the GoFundMe option. You just never know.

I had a bit of a scare today. There is a flight of stairs that go up into the living room as you enter the front door. I lost my balance and came close to tumbling backwards which would not have been good as I was home all by myself. Luckily I managed to grab onto the ledge.

Had a busy afternoon. Met with an investment counselor and paid off the rest of Michael's funeral cost. I nearly died when I found out the conversion rate and then to send it registered mail was an additional expense. But it was nice to be greeted by a cheerful postal worker instead of the grumps I ran into in Colorado Springs. Managed to get home in time before the rain. Good thing too as it came down in buckets. I would have been drenched.

Glad the forum is open. Just click the link in my siggy.

Good evening all. Thanks for the calling me tonight Glad. Always nice to hear from you my friend. I'm truly sorry to hear all the problems your daughter has had of lately. I would go a head and do the Go Fund Me on Facebook. We have done it ourselves and believe me it helped. Remember almost 3 years ago I asked for gas money for John's heart surgery and that was a blessing in itself. Spice I'm happy to see you here and I'm sure glad you got your board up and running. Oh boy, watch yourself Spice when it comes to stairs I'm not good about that either. I have fallen a few times myself. Wished I had a house with no stairs at all. Seems everything is going up these days, even to talk to a investment counselor to. Sure glad you got things straightened out. Joyous sorry to hear about your friend passing away. Today my good friend Vicky had back surgery up in Iowa City. They put a 6 inch rod in her lower back . Plus had to set some of her bones in her legs to adjust to her back. It will be a long road for her and physical therapy as well. Please keep her in your prayers.

Thanks Spice....I will visit this evening. Glad you did not fall.

Good morning to all this morning. I will be gone all day with the church activity at the church. I will be tired tonight!

The food will be something not good for me so I will take salad to eat along with one hot dog. Will leave the chips and cookies alone. This is a kid's thing so the food will be for their liking.

Hot dogs sound good! I might get some today, It shouldn't hurt my seafood diet.
Thanks for the reminder of my birthday, 2Anne. I'd already forgotten about it, now that I'm a senior. In Spain, I was already a Sen~or. (Don't know how to put the ~ above the n.)
Praying for Vicky, Margie.
Going to take Chipper for a walk now.
