This morning I drove a neighbor to Court.
She had parked in a handicap area, the thing you hang in the window had fallen and slipped beneath the seat.
Her case was dismissed, but we listened to about 12 or more cases, each owing $155.00 or more.

WE had two terrific thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. The garden appreciates the rain.

Took Chipper for a walk this morning, while it was cloudy and cool. Boy did it warm up quickly! Took Chipper home, and I've stayed inside with the a/c.

We had rain overnight. Grass was pretty wet when I took Chipper out at 5:30. Left at 7:30 to vote today, came back and picked up Chipper. Took him for a walk down the boardwalk, and then filled my gas tank at 2.74 a gallon. Will be taking a nap soon.

My day"

Picked beans.
This day has been humid.
Not much doing.

I'm listening to a Woman sitting in for Tucker Carlson.
She is revealing the fact that public internet social media is restricting freedom of speech.
I am strongly thinking of leaving Face book. The Nazis stifled freedom of speech.

Lightfoot, I have brothers, sister, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends all over.
I could never call or write to all of them. That is my only reason for staying.

How many of them call or contact you? I mean other than all the forwards that they just send to all their friends.
I had very few.

My day began with taking Chipper downtown for a walk at 6:30, going to Save a Lot at about 8:30 taking Chipper home, taking my vitals, having breakfast, and then spending most of the day at the computer.

My sister and I call each other. She isn't online.
The others are sort of part of a group. Several of us post together.
One cousin emails me and I him. Seldom forwards.

I have great friends online whom I have never met face to face.
You and Glad, for instance. Marianne my very first internet friend, was so very dear to me. Ron. A young woman in England. Others.

Yes Joyous its amazing how the internet brings new friends. I put up a post recently on a political website praising our Primeminister and a gentleman sent a message asking to be my friend as he had seen my photo and liked my smile lol!!
Well I don't make friends with people I don't know on FB but thanked him and thought if I were looking for company there you go.
As it is we have just celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary and are happily married. I have a friend who goes on the Dating Sites and has been out with over 60 men and not one ticks the box. There are amazing opportunities on the web for meeting Mr Right and we no longer have to be 'Wallflowers' at the local hop.

I missed this post and I wondered where you were LFF. I have missed you on FB

I use FB as a witnessing tool first then a communicational tool second. Right now I am praying for a baby born 3 weeks ago tomorrow. Don't know the parents but my pastor's wife knows the family. The baby weighed 1 pound and was born at 24 weeks into the pregnancy. You can find the baby here: https://www.facebook.com/BabyJHoagland2018/?hc_ref=ARQ4GStPBnTLT3bG0oAeZ6phjhsFqfHqzOAOC_5L2aoF4yMoJF0HSUInfdNkuW16RF8&fref=tag

2Anne, it is a good thing and can also be a dangerous thing if one isn't careful.
I would never agree to meet someone alone unless other friends knew them
I did meet a couple I knew from senior.com, the very first chat room I joined.
They were about my age and in this area in their camper. Just ordinary folks.
He died a short time later and I lost track of her.
Chat rooms used to have what they called a "Bash", where everyone could
meet and get to know each other. I was never able to go a I was still working.
I treasure my friendship with each of you and the ones who have gone from
this world.

Good evening all. Sorry I haven't been around here of lately. I have had some health issues to deal with. I went to the doctor last Monday and had sinus infection and got medicine for it. Also found out I had problems with my right arm and can't be on the computer as much as I would like to be now. I also hurt my lower back again but getting better now. Just isn't my week I guess. Weather here today is very warm and will be till Tues and Wed when we get so much needed rain here. Haven't been out anywhere since Wed but need to go to the store soon , maybe tomorrow.

Went to my Mom's today. My Sister and I cleaned up my Mom's rock garden. My Sister had had 2 willow trees taken out a couple of weeks ago, so the 2 rose of Sharon bushes are blooming now. The lilies are stunted from the deer eating them, and we opted to wait on moving the Helleborus plants till the weather is a little cooler. The Helleborus plants are huge! They were very small, when Sally and I gave them to my Mom 20 years ago.
We placed 9 little gnomes (about 8 inches tall) around on the rocks, as well as 5 bunches of artificial peonies, and a couple other figurines.
My Mom gave me a large George Foreman Lean Mean Grilling Machine, about 16" across, as it was too big for her. At home, I made 4 burgers for Chipper and me.

My day so far:

Called my youngest son, too early.
He used to be on the job at 7:00 A.M.
I forgot that he goes in at 9:00 A.M.
now on Mondays. I feel bad when I deprive
him of an extra hour of sleep.

Coffee! YAY
A leftover chicken sausage on some new type of flat, round bread.
Walking by the garden we saw a surveyor out by our street.
He left a pink, plastic marker in front of our place. I asked him
what he was about. The park across the creek has questions about
encroachment. He said he didn't think there was anything to worry
about. I replied,"That's my garden by the creek!"
Probably tax issue, I'm thinking. This trailer park was a motor court in the 50s
when I-75 hadn't been built and Telegraph Road was the main artery from
north to south. So why the issue of encroachment now? The old farmer planted
his corn fields in a semi-circle around this trailer park and probably didn't
concern himself with boundary lines.
I trust your day is as interesting as mine. glbs

Lightfoot, you and your sister sure take great care of your mom.
Bless you both.

Took Chipper for a little walk already this morning. Sat and talked with Loretta next door for a bit. Warmed up some tenderloin for Chipper, and now I'm eating my generic cheerios.

I have no big plans today. May check out the new Dollar General.

Right now, I feel like a bicycle- I'm two tired.

You're doing great, Glad!
I saw my doctor today, and showed her the records I've been keeping. She said the blood pressure is a little high, but with my A1C reading, blood pressures. weight reduction and all, I'm doing great. As for the short duration of my advanced heartbeat, she wasn't worried.
I came home. Dawn was here. I took her to a meeting, took Chipper for a walk, brought him home, took Dawn to Save a Lot to get fixins for cooking, came home, and Dawn made a 4 lb. meatloaf for me, some Shrimp Alfredo, garlic mashed potatoes, ans a cherry cheesecake. This is not all for tonight!
Took Dawn home to Otsego, walked Chipper a bit at North Side Park, also in Otsego, and came home. Sitting here with the a/c on.

Glad, I think the humidity takes a toll on everyone.

Lightfoot, your day sounds interesting.

I did very little. Younger son went fishing and I took his laundry out of the community dryer. I also spent time with my Little buddy, the dog. Not much else.
I just finished spending chat time with a nice young man, trying to pay my son's cable bill online. I have used the same password for ages and suddenly it isn't working, Grrrrr.

Goodnight my friends.

You should probably change your passwords periodically, joyous, unless you have a safe password like mine- 15 characters, with a combination of numbers, upper and lower case letters, and a special character.
Took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk this afternoon. Had meat loaf and mashed potatoes for supper. Did a load of laundry. Time for bed now. Good night!

Lightfoot, I have most of my passwords written down.
I do, however, admit that I possibly sometimes use
lower case when it should be upper case.
In the Direct TV case, I tried it both ways and they
refused it. I think I'm going to simply change it to
automatic payment, assuming I'm ever able to access
the blooming site again!

My day thus far:

Coffee.
Smoothie.
Peeled and cooked fresh, garden tomatoes for juicing.
Saved the pulp for freezing.
Checked the garden for ripe tomatoes and cucumbers.
Got slightly damp in the process as we're getting gentle
rain. :pray:

They might be a combination of upper and lower case, like Password, rather than password. Did the representative have to change your password?
So far, I've taken Chipper out, made blueberry pancakes, and taken a shower. I'm still wet, due to the 62% humidity in here.

Beans to pick so since it is cloudy I will do so in a few minuets.

Garden is slowing down and for some reason I am happy....seems as though it has been a busy summer this year.....of course I have had to take kids here and there since mom had to change jobs a couple of months ago.

Most of the schools are starting or already have started. The schools here in my town had to wait a week longer for they are working on one of the schools and not quite finished yet. I asked granddaughters if that will make them get out late next year and they said no for the district has cut back on days off during the school year. I always thought they had too many days off anyway. Seems like once a month they were getting a day off.

Lightfoot, I finally solved the Direct problem.
I waited until today and tried again, creating
a new password, wrote it in my Password
booklet just as it is. Numbers, uppercase
and lowercase so I cannot make a mistake
and I signed for automatic payment. WHEW!
Glad it's settled. I think the problem was the
fact that I was quite tired last evening.
By the way, I like your new profile photo.

Glad, I am also feeling at ease with the garden's
demise. Enough already, and you worked harder
in your's than I did.
The beets are yet to be pulled,
boiled and frozen.

When you pay bills at the beginning of the month, subtract the automatic payment from your register right away so there's enough there for the payment.
Thanks! That's an updated picture of me. Dawn took it a week ago.

Mother in law fell again today so husband been at the hospital most of day. She's broken a bone in her back but has been sent home to recover. I don't know how much longer this can go on. This is her second fall in two weeks and they seem to be getting more frequent. We got the call at 6am this morning,last one was 3.30am. No wonder no one wants to be a key-holder for these old people. We are her ONLY local next of kin. My husband is very patient and more tolerant than I am.
I feel its time she went into a Care Home as its much safer for her. However she is adamant that she wants to stay at home,
Daughter fixed wedding for 6th October and I'm really excited.

What can I say about my day? Didn't feel like getting up. Then, after resting a bit more, I could feel Chipper staring at me, so I got up and took him outside.
Came in to take my vitals, eat some breakfast, and fire up the computer.
Had to take Chipper out a couple more times, due to the chicken I gave him last night. Took a nap for an hour or two, then took Chipper to the boardwalk for a walk, went to Save a Lot, and home again Jiggety Jig!

I did shopping today too LFF.

Also pickled more okra. We are eating it as fast as I get it pickled which is a good thing.

Sorry about your mother in law 2Anne. Will send prayers up for her. And a care place is not always what it appears either....I have seen some residents overlooked....the staff is always short handed in these places.
