  1. Good morning!!

    LAD, your son is very brave. You have to admire his spunk. Dianne, talking about purple, I had to laugh. We bought a Purple Mattress. jb, it sounds like you weren't injured. Glad for that. It sounds like a lot of people ram from the back. Not paying attention. I better get going. There is cat fur building up in corners. The vet said to put them on a diet but they don't agree. They want full dishes. I can't take the controversy. So hubby might have to take them without me. These cats want to be fat. My hubby suggested I paint cat food image on the bottom of the food dishes. They would think it was a never ending food supply. Until they really did eat all the food. We'd be in trouble than. Good health to all.
  2. Good morning!!

    Things got changed on here and I can't seem to find where to check for PM. Maybe I haven't looked closely enough. Anyway not much new stuff here. Except I'm getting tingling toes and legs. I think I need to move more and sit less. We won't be camping for awhile. Sold the RV. Just too large. So large that you had to tow a car or you couldn't get around. I guess the kids will have to come visit us. And so as the sun sets in the west I make an observation, there is no such thing as having too many friends. Here's to health or as much as we can get. m
  3. Good morning!!

    Hi all! Texas Tom, love the dogs! We had a dog which was pretty smart. She trained us pretty good. She passed away and right now we are fostering our son and DIL two cats. Hope everyone is doing well and staying out of the hurricane's path.
  4. Good morning!!

    I actually have something worthwhile to tell you all. My DH does not have PD but does have trouble sleeping. We bought a new mattress cause we thought that was the problem. The new mattress came with an eye mask. He started wearing it at night and so far (at least the last two nights) he didn't have any trouble going to sleep and staying asleep. I'm hopping up and down. It wasn't the mattress, it was the light. !!!!!! This reminds me of the scene in the movie Blues Brothers where they say, "The band. the band.!" And do all those flips up the the front of the church and back.
  5. Good morning!!

    We grieved on losing our dog. But we delayed having her put down. Till one day we realized she was just in too much pain. Your experience is similar to ours. We also had two cats at one time. When they passed we planted a bush that would bloom the month they passed. I often wondered why dogs and cats have such short lives. But take comfort in the fact that he feels no pain now. Sending lots of hugs.
  6. Good morning!!

    Hi all!!!!!! Not much to say. But just stopping in. Wishing everyone good health. Or as good as we can get. Good luck jb, on the surgery.
  7. Good morning!!

    I remember before there were wheels... on trash cans that is. I remember when newborns were supposed to lay on their tummies per expert people... now they say newborns should lie on their backs. I remember when autos needed gasoline to run...now there are electric autos. I remember when sugar was bad for you...now there is Fructose Corn Syrup. I remember when I could remember everything...except in job interviews. I remember when everybody was smarter than me...they still are. I've still got a lot to learn. But I've got all of you to help me...Thanks. I don't say it enough.
  8. Good morning!!

    I have a SIL who is mentally challenged. If you ask her how old her brother is she gives the proper age. (Remember I had nothing to do with this). But if you ask her how old I am she answers, "29." No matter how old I am, still 29. I told a friend once if we only correspond and never see each other we will be eternally young. I've not seen movie stars for years and than you see them and believe me, they aged. I had a friend who is a retired ER nurse. She can spot a face lift at twenty yards. I just made the twenty yards up.
  9. Good morning!!

    Yes, I thought it sounded like that song and that is why I left the "a" in. But as jb said the "a" belongs to Canadians. I think you are right that with cats no mice. I still keep my eyes open for them. We need to seal all openings. More later. m
  10. Good morning!!

    I have a new brain problem. I changed my password and now have to remember it. Things are a changing. I added that 'a' on purpose. Now you know why I have not posted. You might write it down but forgot where you put it. Maybe I should write it on my forehead and comb my bangs over it. It would have to be backwards. Then when I need it I would hold my bangs up and look in a mirror. That would only work once. It would wash off. I would have to change it everyday. Oh well. This is an old house. Floors creak. Spooky. One day I was in the kitchen when a clock hooked on the soffit flew off and broke into pieces. I asked my sister if she thought a mouse pushed it off. She looked at me like I was crazy. What do you think made it fall off.? My DH put the pieces together and rehung it. It has behaved ever since. Hugs to all.
  11. Good morning!!

    I probably did get the wrong title/book. I didn't look it up. That's what I get for not double checking. Yes, Who said a picture is like a thousand words? I didn't look that up either. I wrote once that if you wanted proof of global warming just look at the North Pole (or was it the South Pole) on Google Earth. I got chewed out for that one. This person responded back that was not proof. That was many years ago. I can't even remember which pole is which any more. Which one does Santa Clause live. He'll have to trade his sled in for a wagon. I find now since I'm much older that my parents traits are showing up. I can't deny that I'm who I am. But sometimes I'll say something about the past and my DH says I've remembered it wrong. This is really scary. So if I'm going to remember something wrong I may as well make it a whooper. Not the sandwich but a big lie. Or if you remember it wrong is that still a lie. I'll have to think on that one a while. Happy days to all. (I may have misspelled 'whooper' also.
  12. Good morning!!

    We had hot dogs on the 4th and hamburgers and baked potatoes and baked beans. Sister brought Rice Krispy treats. I forget the rest. Porridge had to originate sometime before Charles Dickens wrote Great Expectations. "Please sir, may I have some more?" We came home from school and changed our clothes into 'play' clothes. When in high school we would take our dry clean only clothes down to the laundromat and used the do it yourself dry clean machines. Once I had a 'good' dress on and in the back yard found a fountain pen which I picked up to examine being a curious sort of person. Squirted ink all over my dress. My mind is blank on the rest of that day. Did it cure me of being curious? NO! I gave my Dad a straw hat once and a white shirt. He wasn't wearing them instead of the shirt that had a hole in it and the hat was just as bad. I asked him why he wasn't wearing the new stuff and he said the old ones were not wore out yet. His idea of wore out was different than mine. And to top it off. I had my parents and sister staying with us for a month or so and I told my sister not to eat certain things in the fridge cause they were too old and I was throwing them out. She ran and got my mom and they proceeded to heat them up and eat them for lunch.!!!!! There were times I hoped I was adopted.
  13. Good morning!!

    I don't know when Canada Day is. I can't find a calendar. So I'll just use today. Happy Canada Day.!!!!! We didn't get the thunderstorm yesterday we were told we were getting. Oh well. I do know when our trash guy goes. That's important too cause we got raccoons in our garage attic. They or one - not sure- like to eat food we throw out. Got a lot to do today. Happy Canada Day!!!!
  14. Good morning!!

    DaveN, I thought that too. So we went and fed the parrot a cracker. It liked it. So it drank a little water, ate it's cracker, and it flew away. It would not let us touch it. It did have a tag on it's leg. We couldn't read it. So in this case Polly did want a cracker. Maybe the parrot found it's way home. It was an interesting day yesterday. I heard the cat meowing loudly. He has a soft voice so I went to see what he was doing. He was on the dresser trying to get his nose up to the open window. I open the window from the top so the cats can't knock the screen out. He could not reach the top and tried moving the curtain. He got his claw caught in the curtain. He was pulling on his paw but the claw would not come out. So he was twisting his leg. I tried pulling on his paw but didn't work so took the curtain and pushed it off. Now he keeps track of where I am. He didn't care for me before. What is that Aesop's fable about the lion that had a splinter in it's paw? Dianne, yeah and the best part is the joke worked without saying a word. We never spoke of it after. Hee Hee. I love it when a plan comes together.
  15. Good morning!!

    We are having some pretty mild weather. So we have some windows open. I kept hearing a noise and I always need to know what is causing any noise. It turned out to be a parrot. We put a little water out for it but it stayed away. We were going to try and catch it and take it down to the vet. It went someplace else instead. My computer chair is also one of the chairs the cat likes. So she watches me and when I leave to do something else she gets it. My DH says if I want it I need to push her off. I just don't like that. I know it's a dominant issue. I hear the parrot. Guess it went someplace else again. My brain is fuzz. I just noticed my computer isn't plugged in. 11% is not good. I hear that parrot again. I think this is going to be a long day. What do you say to a parrot. Here is an old joke. I used this one when it showed up on a pencil and I left it out so my boss could read it and to read the answer you would have to rotate it. Why did the elephant quit the circus.? He was tired of working for peanuts. This was a long time ago. I came in the next day and the answer was up so he did see it. I did get a raise. No PD talk here. Maybe a little. So when I filled the container with water I had to get it out side without spilling it. Ever try that one. ???
