Re: the fireplace.  Perhaps there is a restaurant somewhere that has a real one that we could sit in front of.

Linda:

Rob, Mom and I just had lunch at Papas restaurant not far from you at all.  This isn't a resort, just a restaurant, but it has great food and a fireplace (but I'm sure the fireplace isn't running during summer).  Don't know if that helps or not.    Hope you are well. Best, Lonnise

Hey, there, Lonnise!  I was trying to find one of your prior-mails to me to find your e-mail address, but it took me a number of tries before I could remember how to spell your name. :-)  I had wanted to make sure you were aware of our planning to get together. 

And yes, Pappas Restaurant has wonderful food, and I had never noticed it has a fireplace.  Probably because the restaurant is always so crowded.  Btw, they are known for their crab cakes, but I wouldn't recommend them unless our blue crabs are in season.  :-)

Hi Linda:

Beginning of September I'll be back in school and Rob at work, but we'll be with you in spirit.  I think gathering at Oak Crest would be terrific.  All the amenities you have - including pools, puzzle tables, libraries, and all those you mentioned.  Also, the center has "one-room" rentals you could book if you know the date and need in advance.  I've done that when we've gathered at Mom's but overflowed her apartment's accommodations.  Have a great gathering and maybe next year Rob and I can join you.  Best.

Lonnise

Jb49- where art thou? I thought of you today as I saw a waitress spill syrup while trying to carry it on her finger while balancing 3 plates of food. Spilled syrup and all it was an impressive balancing act but quite a sticky one!

hope all is well with the "good morning " gang!

Happy to know you're busy in your garden, jb. That always makes me happy, too.

I just returned from an endoscopy under anesthesia. My stomach is red and inflamed but there are no ulcers. 

Today, I choose joy

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. ???

Marcia, I love your joke--and it worked! Awesome!

My favorite silly joke is: What do you call a Frenchman who wears sandals?

Answer: Philippe Philoppe.

Laugh even if it hurts. It's good for you.:D

hello dianne, and marcia and the parrot.

 I have been to San Francisco before and there are flocks of wild parrots in the city.  They fly around singing their song, looking for food, all the day long. 

On the news today, they showed a crow that attacks the mailman on the street in Vancouver that the crow has a nest. He has pecked at the mailman, scratched him and harrassed him enough that the people of that street have to pick up their mail at another location.  Cause the mailman isn't going down there anymore. ah

I hear a thunder storm coming in fast. I am going to unplug things before they get blown up by lightning.

Hope everyone is well,

jb.

Hi, jb. I appreciate the "Don't be hard on yourself; try your best and be strong" saying.  It's hard to do.  But good reminder to try.
