I finished my day bed, and cleaning up the mess from the queen bed I tore down. Snapped a quick picture from the doorway with my flip phone. The day bed is straight ahead under the window, my hospital bed is on the left, and my 'recliner-and-a-half' is on the right:

Adobe has long been a target of attacks, as it's used in so many applications. Adobe responsibly identifies and patches against these attacks. As such, Adobe is as safe as any other program can be if it's installed with the latest update for your browser, and with the automatic updates option checked. Adobe is being phased out as applications switch to HTML5, but there are many applications that are not set up for HTML5.

I have a line on a downtown apartment for $200 less a month, but I may have to pay for heat, water/sewer, and trash pickup there, which is included in the rent here, plus the apartment would be upstairs, requiring Chipper to go up and down the stairs several times a day, and I don't know if I want to go through the hassle of moving again.

It all looks very nice LFF but every move is an upheaval and it takes time to settle down and really feel at home.
We are still in Spain. Our house here is much smaller but it only takes half an hour with both of us to do a full clean up.
Sunny weather here but not warm enough for a swim.
Both husband and I have been ill. Rob with a stomach upset and Ive caught tracheitis. Both on the mend now.

If we're voting, I vote Lightfoot stays where he is.
Why deprive your neighbors of yourself and Chipper.
Chipper is aging and should not have stairs to climb.

2Anne, I had never heard of tracheitis. Is it anything
like a sore throat> Seriously, I hope you're both soon
completely healed. Your time in Spain shouldn't be
marred by any illness.

Thanks Joyous and Glad for your kind wishes. Tracheitis is inflammation of trachea and causes breathing problems. We have both caught things here previously but my husband thinks his illness is caused by eating rice out.
The flight does not help as far as picking up bugs goes.
Anyway we are both better and on the mend.
I have been watching The Pioneer Woman cooking show on the TV but she does make high calorie stuff with a lot of oil and sugar. Amazing that she and her family are all thin! Good programme though and she has nice recipes- well worth watching.🍓🍒🍉

I found nice shampoo in States called White Rain - it was a low price and good quality. We have chains of really cheap chemists in the U.K. and they sell top brand shampoo and toiletries for half price. That way you can get top quality products at reasonable prices. They also sell painkillers, cosmetics and household cleaners. We have one called Supersavers in our town.

Thanks Lightfoot. I have a very good picture in my mind of you and Chipper. He must be as spoiled as a child. The clue is all his toys scattered around, Is he good about picking them up when playtime is over? LOL
Seriously, everything is very neat and tidy. I especially like your shower curtain, your patio and the wooded area just beyond your doorway.
P.S. Is that Dawn shooting the photo? She has lovely hair.

Yes. Chipper is indeed spoiled. Did you see him laying under my desk, next to me? He does NOT put his toys away. He'll come running when I step on one and it squeaks.
With the exception of Chipper's toys, I try to put things away after I use them.
I have another shower curtain that has butterflies on it. I had 2 bathrooms in the old apartment.
I like living in the back of the building- quieter, with a better view.
That was my Sister taking the pictures. She was taking the pictures to show my Mom, since she can't really come out here.
My Sister looks pretty good for her age. (I think her hair color is from a bottle.)

Lightfoot, if you had gone to Huroc Park,
right in the middle of our little city, you
would need to cross the Huron river on
our covered bridge. Flat Rock is one of
the vanishing small towns. Too much
new business for my liking, but it happens
everywhere.

Maybe I didn't go far enough. I stopped at that little pizza place across from Huroc park. Then went back the way I came.

Our country is beautiful, but some of the people are not.
I have a niece and her family who live in Auburn, Washington.
I have a sister, two brothers and many relatives in South Carolina
and many relatives in North Carolina. I am not fond of Florida, but
every other state I have visited I like a lot. My older sister lived
many years in TN. I'm very fond of Canada.
Austria, Germany, Scotland, England and Ireland are beautiful in
my opinion. Viewing photos makes me long to spend time in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, UK.

2Anne, I live within a short drive of Detroit.
In fact, when I came to Michigan in 1955, I
lived in Detroit. Downtown was such a fascinating place to
a girl who grew up in the hills of the south. Sadly that great,
old city has fallen from favor since then.
When my mother in law and I toured London, we were to meet my niece at the Savoy for tea. As we walked about two blocks from the Savoy, a middle aged lady sat up in her cardboard box, straightened her hat, stood up and went on her way. The box was apparently her temporary home. Yet she had a certain pride of herself.
Lightfoot lives entirely across the state from Detroit, near Grand Rapids, which is more bustling, business hub today than is Detroit
