I was able to take Chipper on a nice walk this morning on the boardwalk. Then I drove home, talked with some neighbors, came in with Chipper, checked my blood sugar and blood pressure, which I keep track of along with others in the thread in our health section http://shoutaroundtheworld.forumotion.com/t8281-glucose-and-blood-pressure-readings#214587
Then, I got myself a bowl of cereal, and was still able to sit down and watch Let's Make a Deal. Been catching up on my emails and such.

Hello LFF!

Today I have already picked up granddaughter to take her to ref soccer. Waiting now for a phone call to go to help clean church. Tonight I have been invited to a friend's house for supper. She is a great cook!

Here we are half way through September. Can Autumn be far away?

Good morning all!
Took Chipper for a walk at the Sports Complex. Came home.

Just took a shower. Didn't help. Sweat is just pouring off me in this humidity!

The only plans I have for today is are picking up Dawn at the bus station in Holland at 5 this afternoon. Then driving her to Otsego. I may buy her a bite to eat. Am sure she'll be hungry after 8 hours on the bus.

Have a good day all!

Good afternoon all. Came back from my trip and managed to get a head cold. Doesn't want to let go although it is better than what it was.

It's been quite rotten weather all week. Quite chilly and overnight lows are dipping below freezing. I;ve cut down the last of my lettuce and my tomato plants which didn't do well this year at all.

Have a great day everyone.

2Anne, your life sounds exciting by comparison to mine.
I did very little today. I mostly have this day of rest.
Used to go to SDA church, but when I stopped driving
on any snow or icy roads, it became easier to not go at all.
I did visit the wee dog and he gave my wrist a leash burn.
He gets very suddenly excited and lunges. My wrist happened
to get caught in his leash. Not his fault. I must look for a
different leash.

Yesterday I had new tires put on the front. I also had a noise checked.
The man didn't find a problem and no diagnostic charge.

My mother's dog used to pull and lunge and you can get a lead called a Haltie and I think part of it goes in the dog's mouth. Ask at the pet shop Joyous.
I do have nice events in my life but on the whole I am fairly quiet like today when my husband is out golfing and all I have to do is make the curry for lunch.
This has not been a happy time for me and I was forced to terminate a 'friendship' with someone who turned out to be untrustworthy. Very unpleasant and upsetting but it had to be done. Surely human relationships are the most trying and so hard to get right. Life is an ever changing kaleidoscope.

Today,
what can I say
about my day?
I have to take Chipper for a walk in a bit- a short walk because the mosquitoes are so bad.
I have to call and reschedule my podiatry appointment, because I didn't realize that Dawn's EEG was going to take 3 hours yesterday.
I hope to meet my friend, Tim at Red Robin some ttime today- have to call him.
And I have to squeeze a shower in there somewhere too.
I thought retirement would mean I'd have lots of time to do stuff.....

2Anne and LFF, you two gave me a good chuckle regarding retirement.

2Anne, I appreciate the leash advice. I just would feel horrible about putting the part in his mouth.
I just have to be more aware and keep him on a shorter leash when autos are in the vicinity.

2Anne, I do understand your feelings about ending a friendship. It must hurt so much to learn
a friend cannot be trusted.

I have a little notebook on my desk where I keep track of these things.
Also, joyous, I highly recommend a harness for the little dog. It tugs on his middle instead of his neck, he can't slip out of it, and he'll feel safer. Now that I use a harness on Chipper, I wouldn't want to go back to a collar. It will take a while for him to get used to it (Chipper still avoids me when I try to slip it over his head.), make sure it's the right size, and remember that you get what you pay for. The more expensive harnesses like a 'Four Paws' are made better.

Turned out that 3 large areas of soft floor have to be repaired before the laminate floor can be installed st my Mom's. The leaks in my Mom's bedroom/closet/living room, the second bedroom/closet/furnace area, and the master bathroom were fixed years ago, but the floor was not inspected at that time. Now, we have to get those areas repaired, and are waiting for a timetable from the carpenter.
Couldn't get in here yesterday. Don't know what was up with that.
Will be taking the little dog for a walk shortly, before our rain gets here.

Joyous my mother's dog was a border collie and out of control. Once she had the 'Haltie' lead she behaved on walks and loved going out. It did not seem to bother her.
I have had a worrying 2 days. A friend of mine who is 66 has just had ? a stroke and is in hospital. The ambulance came as she could not stand up and was nauseated and dizzy. The Paramedics were a bit reluctant to take her to hospital but Linda's son who is a doc spoke to them and she was whipped off pronto. She's had a CT scan and they've found something so is to have an MRI scan too. She's still in hospital but I hope to take her some things in tomorrow. All a big worry.
Then I had some really bad news. My sister who is not a nice person is coming to the wedding- I shan't say more but its really bad. Also my youngest sister who had Bi-polar and is likely to draw attention to herself in a bad way as she's always got to be the centre of attention. Only parents are going into the wedding thank goodness, and the reception party has 5 rooms so I can hide myself if need be. Oh dear! weddings and families!!

1. It isn't a new month, so why did I have to log in?

LFF, I do put a body harness on Little Chuckie. It's mesh
stuff. I got medium as he is too big for small and he can
manage to get out of it sometimes. I know it wasn't a cheap one.
It's the leash that burned my wrist.
2Anne, I will check the Haltie lead. He is part Jack Russel and
they're naturally hyper.

2Anne, after reading about your sisters, I decided the remaining
family I have are prize winners. There were three of us from Mama
and four from my Stepmother. When our dad died, he left no will, but
he had told us how he wished his land divided. At the settling of the
property, we all agreed. Everyone said how unusual it was for seven
siblings to agree without any disagreement. We care more for each
other than for land or money.

I attended a funeral this morning for a 75 year old woman. I didn't
know her, but I care a lot for one of her daughters and son in law and
their two children. If a funeral can be beautiful, her's was. The son in law
gave the eulogy. I think she would have liked it.

LFF, we had rather strong winds here for about an hour. Then the high
humidity returned. Yesterday we had a deluge of rain, like a cloudburst.
I can honestly say, winter, if not too harsh, will be welcome.
I'm so thankful that much of my family live in the mountainous area of
North and South Carolinas. They were out of the path of Florence. :pray: of thanks.

I love your word Thunderboomers LFF. So very descriptive and I shall use it from now on-thankyou.
Phoned friend in hospital yesterday and she was improving and nothing abnormal found so she has been diagnosed with severe vertigo ? ear infection-she's to see the ENT people- and I went to the hospital with her clothes and brought her home.
I was dreading going as there is a roundabout to go round. It has 4-5 lanes and is a nightmare but I overcame my fear (with prayer!) and it all went so well I now have confidence to drive into town in the future.

I stayed with Linda a couple of hours when we got home and helped her and then went home at 4pm and returned at 7pm but she was OK and her son was coming that night so I said I would pop in again on Sunday after he had left for Las Vegas on holiday. Pool Linda has missed her flight to Anguilla and her months holiday. She was to help a friend with breast cancer. At least she's on the mend.

Yesterday I picked a huge bag of apples and swept the path as the high winds had covered it in leaves plus loads of moss from the roof.
Best wishes to you all to have a lovely and blessed day bearhug ckn

Today started out cool at 44, when I walked Chipper on the boardwalk. Warmed up quite quickly as the sun rose higher in the sky. When the temperature reached our high of 70 at about 3:00, I took Chipper out again, with intentions of going for a walk. We hadn't even gotten across the parking lot, when someone fired a shotgun in the distance. That's all she wrote, as Chipper turned right around, and headed for the door. I did get to take him for a long walk a few hours later.
Didn't do a lot else today. I did make a cheesecake. Have it in the fridge.
Tomorrow, I won't be around till later in the afternoon, as, hopefully, my Mom's floors will get finished, and we'll be able to move her furniture back into the rooms we've vacated.

Happy belated birthday, Margie.
Sounds like it was nice.

LFF, might it have been a tire blowout?
Are people allowed to shoot in your area?

2Anne, I managed Roundabouts rather well
on a trip to Ireland, but I was about 30 years
younger. I wonder if I could now?
What will you make with the apples?

I enjoyed a lovely walk yesterday in a park
called Crosswinds Marsh. With daughter, granddaughter,
daughter in law. Tired before we finished, but benches
are available at intervals.

It was definitely a gunshot, joyous. Actually, there were 4 shots. I think firing guns may be illegal here in the city, but we're less than mile from the city limits.
You have intervals at your parks too? We have benches at ours on the boardwalk, at the sports complex too, but the intervals are further apart.
Eating my cheerios right now, but then will take Chipper out before I go out to my Mom's today.

Good morning Shouters! I posted the following on my facebook page kinda like I was posting it for my late hubby to see.....perhaps it can.....

"It is rainy today but there is sunshine in my soul. I'm in a weary mood this morning so I need that sunshine. I know that God shines a light upon my path day by day and year by year. Year number 14 without you Bill. I will never forget you but if you could know the years are getting much better to come around. I try to keep up with placing flowers on your grave and your mother's grave. This time I could not get them in the ground for her but since it has rained I will go back this week before the 29th and do so. Continue to rest in peace and one day when it is my time I will meet you there."



Have a good day everyone.

Hope the neighbors don't complain about the noise, 2Anne! wink
68F outside, with light rain here.

I slept in a bit, then took Chipper outside. I'm going to start taking Chipper out through the slider in back now more, as he had an altercation with another dog out front yesterday- nothing harmful.

Then I have to bring Chipper back inside from the front, because I can't unlock my slider from the outside as my lock is a rod that slides down into the track as I close the door. It has a lock on the latch, but I can't lock it from the outside.

Dawn will be stopping by today, after her doctors appointment. Her boyfriend will drop her off here, and she's going to make a meatloaf for me. Then, I'll take her home.

Bought gas yesterday at $2.75 a gallon yesterday morning. On my way home from my Mom's yesterday, I saw that the price had jumped up to 3.09

2Anne, do fuel prices have any connection with BREXIT.
which I have no clue what BREXIT means. I know I should be more informed, but just keeping up with the latest sexual escapades of our probable next Supreme Court Judge is about all I can manage to stay informed on. I believe Billy Graham had the best idea. He made it a rule to NEVER be alone with a female. I believe VP Pence takes his wife everywhere for that reason too. Of course Kavanaugh was supposedly only 17 when he supposedly sexually assaulted Dr. Ford.

As near as I can figure, since English pay 57.95 pence per litre, a pence equals $0.012863, and there are 3.78541 liters per gallon, the English pay about $2.82 a U.S. gallon. The U.S, subsidies to the oil industries are so complicated, no one can be expected to understand them, much less calculate how they affect the price of a gallon of gas.

Thanks for the nice comments concerning my late hubby. You all mean so much to me and I appreciate your friendship more than worse could express!

Oh, the mention of gas prices brings back memories of ISH. He was complaining often of the gas prices.

LFF is the gas going up because of the hurricanes?

Since it has rained I am going to go back to place flowers on the graves that I could not do last week (the ones where I have to stick the flowers down in the ground) While I am there I will go on to Aldis.

Nothing else planned until time for Bible Study this evening.

Was also short on sleep but busy morning. Took Linda to doc's at 10am and then home for a cup of tea or cuppa as we call it in the UK. Then I went to charity shop and donated some stuff, got Linda's prescription and also shopped for her,us and my mother in law. Got home close to 1pm but had to drop Linda's off as she had frozen goods.
Rested this afternoon but could not sleep. Too hot. Then I discover even though it's about 75F outside our central heating is on so sorted that out.

We spent a lot of today watching Brett Kavanaugh
being dragged over hot coals. His accuser, Christine Ford
was rather convincing but there is not a speck of proof.
Kavanaugh was angry because the liberal, Democrats
are using her to keep him off the Supreme Court and
his family is suffering. The accuser has nothing to back
up her allegations.(?) The 4 she named either cannot

These allegations have become a political weapon. Democrats baying for blood. We had similar in the U.K. when a man alleged he was sexually abused by pop singer Cliff Richard. Immediately the BBC went into overdrive and put up the story as true with no evidence. They hounded Cliff and when it went to Court the case was dismissed and the BBC had to pay damages.BUT mud sticks. These lying allegations destroy reputations and lives. Im sorry for that Judge and his family.

Joyous- Brexit translates as Britain exits- the EU. Its become very divisive but its been triggered by mass immigration and lack of democracy by the EU ruling elite.
LFF- I had taken the smaller US gallon into account when I gave you our gas prices. Over half the price as you say is government tax.

I used to work at walmart, and would rather not give them my business for 2 reasons: 1. They treat their employees like dirt. (sure was different when Sam Walton was alive), and 2. The waltons are greedy, and putting smaller retailers out of business.
Today, on this last day of September, I'll be taking Chipper for a walk, coming home to get a shower and shave, then head out to my Mom's again this afternoon.

Hope you all have a good day!

My son worked there for a while too and he kept telling them the loading dock buggy (or what ever it is called) was unsafe. One night he almost got crushed by it and got out of the way quick enough. He walked out right then and there.

Do I still shop there? Yes because I save money.....maybe I shouldn't.

Thats dreadful Glad re your son. After what you have both said its put me off shopping there although somehow I think I took my last trip to the States last year.
In the U.K. dangers to employees are referred to health and safety regulators and employer neglect generates huge fines or even imprisonment for business owners.

Mornin' all! I'll be going for my pedicure in an hour or so. While I'm out without Chipper, I might get my oil changed.

Have a good day all!

Dang LFF......I need to check into a pedicure! I can no longer trim my own toe nails correctly.

2Anne......I still shop at Walmart for the savings I can get but I am not an everyday shopper there....just when I need something I get cheaper than anywhere else. Happy Birthday to you today. I posted a thread for you.
