Good morning Claudie!

Plan on my g/f helping the few times needed. Will be walking up the mtn asap.

Was very happy to discover Law & Order has a new contract on Netflix and is on for at least another month. Am on Season 12. Like the known special guest stars like Robin Williams and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Made some home made chicken noodle soup in the crockpot. While the chopped green beans, celery, and carrots were cooking, went to Shaw's for their $1.99 sale on boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Stopped at the P.O. for my mail, Then took a drive on the CT River Hwy The CT River (1m:07s) is a 410-mile journey from the Canadian border to the Atlantic Ocean in Long Island Sound. It is not yet peak and getting more vivid color daily.

Returned home to add wheat noodles, diced chicken breast and sliced baby bella mushrooms to the chicken soup. Added some evoo basil, a touch of parsley, onions and diced chives from the garden in it. 3.5 hours later Had a 4 quart multi meal.

Was watching the new to me pilot show of "The walking Dead" on Netflix. In a world devastated by a zombie apocalypse, a small band of survivors pulls together to find safety — and answers — within the walls of the CDC in Atlanta.

Heard a terrible grinding sound and went outdoors. The town hired a brush hog to mow down the brush on the side of the road. Problem was the fellow was extending the tractor arm attached to brush hog to clear all the branches of my tree limbs on my property.

Was very angry, told him it was my property he was cutting on. He 'fessed up to it, and gave me his name, which is not in the telephone book. Also wrote down the plate of the tractor.

Minutes later my neighbor to the north, who drove me to the oral surgeon on Monday, stopped by w/another Jehovah Witness driving. He asked me how it was going. Told him how the brush hog did not just clear the bank, he he extended the arm to cut the limbs off my trees.

He read from the Book of Matthew 18:15, "Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother." That is exactly what happened.

Civil twilight is 6:16 AM EDT. Night is 6:54 PM.

Sunrise: 6:45 AM. Set: 6:25 PM.

Length of day: 11h 39m. Length of visible light: 12h 37m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 50° (10°C), the high to be 72° (22°C) in partially cloudy skies.

Will go to Big Papa's Market and shop at a few other stores. Don't plan on buying much.

Have a fantastic day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

As I've heard before, never underestimate the value of a good mechanic.

Feeling good tonight despite getting little sleep today. Had a great lunch last night here at work. Earlier in September, our specific plant (we have three total) celebrated 2 years without a lost time accident. To celebrate this, we got a catered lunch, a sweatshirt with the company's logo, and a $35 gift card from WM. The overall record is 11 years at one of the other locations.

Although it's not centered, I have gone with a pink Dino this month and have dedicated this to the late Mrs. Conley, Emily's 3rd grade teacher who died recently during breast cancer surgery. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if there's one thing I'd love to see wiped off this Earth, it would be cancer. Not just breast cancer and not just in October.

Now, for the bad news. I will be off tomorrow night. The good news, I'm doing Dino's Jukebox tonight. This song, since I've decided to go with it and the group, has stuck in my head for the past week.

Tonight's edition of Dino's Jukebox comes from a band who formed in Toronto, Ontario Canada back in 1978. They are well known for their cover songs including this one they took to #12 in the US back in 1987. Originally done by Steam back in 1969, this version of the song has a great acapella feel to it.

Good evening, HappyHiker, yankie, Robustus, TUrtLE, sandipaws, and WKGaser!

HappyHiker, we're getting just the opposite; the colder temps will be here tomorrow night...down into the low 50s/high 40s. Brrrr! Have a good trip!

yankie, I filled my car up at Kroger in McD on Monday; everywhere around LG was close to $3.39, so I checked GB before I went out. Somebuddy posted that Kroger was $3.29, and I sure was hoping that was a correct post (you know how sometimes the wrong price WILL be posted). Thank goodness, it WAS $3.29 and I had to use up September's points, so I saved 30¢ a gallon. :) Hope the prices start to come down more so I can get under $3.00 with my savings (I don't use the points all at once; I spread them out over the whole month).

Robustus, hmmmm, your mom said she had a seizure this morning? Wouldn't they have called you if she had? As for going to the activities, maybe your mom needs to tell somebuddy that she wants to go to them.

TUrtLE, I guess I have been lucky with the surveys; I seem to get the info on my receipt every week. There have been a coupla times it wasn't there, though. The problem I had (in the beginning) was making durned sure that I did them 7 days apart. Now I make sure I do the survey every Wednesday after I go to the store. As for the 'scripts...every time I fill one, I get 50 points. :)

sandipaws, I forgot to mention that I also got the senior discount today at the grocery store, which was about $2.50. :)

WKGaser, thanks for stopping in!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good Afternoon/Evening Claudie,
I saw your post to me earlier, but had to do the dishes and then off to the dentist so no time to answer then.

Yes, Freds does the fuel points. We also take the survey at that same address. The trick with the survey is getting one on your receipt. It doesn't always happen and when I went to customer service to ask for the number for that day, they tell me they don't have it. Once I waited for the gal in line behind me and she got a receipt so I got the number. I have never had more than 30 points for any given month.
We only get 50 points on a prescription if it's a new one that is paid out of pocket. I did that once. Otherwise as an example, I pay $9 for a generic drug so I only get 9 points. Does this answer your questions?

Good evening Claudie!

What a crazy day!

Remember I mentioned about all the "honchos" being at my store (work) today?

It ended up looking like every single manager and department manager from all the Just $ave grocery chain (I think there are about 16 stores) showed up today. There was one group in one dept. and another one somewhere else. I couldn't escape see a "sea of red." (Too bad, Moses wasn't there to separate it.) (Red is one of our company's colors.)

Anyway, I thought the first bunch was all of them and left around 1. Then, about 30 minutes later, another bunch showed up! Eventually everyone appeared to be gone by the time I got off at 4.

Most of the day it looked like there were more of these people than customers! Then, they got a little excited. They all threw their hands in a huddle and shouted a cheer when they finished up in a section. I don't know if all these people were coming to look at our store as a "model store." Remember, I mentioned something about being the best store? One of my fellow co-workers said, that we were rewarded "Store of the Year." So, perhaps, they all were there to see what we do and use that for their own stores.

Anyway, enough of the craziness. On a more serious note, I got a call from Mom around 3:30. She told me to call her back or get over there ASAP. She was unaware that I didn't get off work until 4. So, as soon as I got off work, I got over there. She told me that she had some kind of seizure this morning where she shook and shook for a few minutes. However, when I got there, she seemed back to her old self again. She bragged on how much fun she had getting out the last couple days. But, she told me something a little scary saying that there's a chance she could die if another seizure occurs. So, I'm puzzled that Mom seemed to be doing great while we were out yesterday and now this. Sad thing, she doesn't have a regular doctor where she's at to talk to. Also, the nurses changes shifts at 3, so I was too late to catch anyone if I wanted to talk to them. So, I hope this isn't anything serious, but of what Mom said, it looks like I could have been.

Anyway, as for answering Claudie's question about getting help. That has been a problem since she's been there. The nurses are so short staffed that they are always seemed to be on the go with all the demands from the patients. I know this sounds bizarre but I thought I heard each nurse is responsible for like 20 patients. When I sign Mom out to go somewhere they open up the book with her records with the page to sign her out, but they leave it and take off to do something else. Then, I have take 10 more minutes to haunt someone down to see if she needs any medication while we are out. However, Mom has told me that there has been someone once in a while that offers to take her down for an activity. But, not as often as it should be.

Well, I just looked at the clock, I got to run. Time for Wed. evening service.

Have a good evening!

Hoya, pink and kathybye!

pink, it IS a nice day here! Well, maybe just a tad warm at about 80°, but the dew point is below 60°, so it feels alright.

kathybye, so DID you find someone to do the sheetrock?

Hello, attitash and TUrtLE!

attitash, it's a pretty nice day here right now, too, though our temp is a little higher than yours....80° and a dew point of 61° and thank goodness sunshiny!! I think I did good at the grocery store today, too.

TUrtLE, does Freds also do the fuel point thing? B/c of some gift cards I was able to get, a 'script I got, points that Son got me when he shopped at Gerbes in MO (same family as Kroger and Freds), AND my groceries...I was able to get to 1000 in fuel points (to be used by the end of this month). I don't use the discount all at once. I'll probably do 30¢ off/30¢ off/30¢ off/10¢ off...or maybe one of those 3 weeks will be 40¢ off instead; we'll see. I am also able to get 50 points a week when I go to www.krogerfeedback.com/ and fill out a survey. I try to do as much as I can to get those points! :)

Claudie, you did well as Krogers. Wish Freds had the offers that you seem to have. I do have $.30 a gal off my gas for one fill up in October. If prices stay the same and I buy it locally at Shell I'll pay $3.55 a gal, and that's WITH the discount.

Whoo hoo!

A good, short morning out!

Did pretty good at Kroger....had 4 e-coupons that totaled $3.50 and 2 paper coupons that totaled 80¢ also got several gift cards (to put up and use later or send as presents) b/c they also have an e-coupon (sorta) where, when you buy the gift cards, you get 4X the fuel points (hmmmm, I might have mentioned that earlier this week); this promotion ends Saturday, so I decided to get some today. Hope they run that promotion again soon. :)

Good morning, three30, Farful, and dickc49!

three, don't know that one or the singers.

Farful, that's a really good price for gas at Sam's! Prices around here are in the high $3.30s (except last week, they were all in the high $3.10s...an increase of 20¢! Boooo Now it'll take forever to get back down!).

dick, oh, wow! That's a 'busy' baby jumper! I used to love Baby Einstein stuff when the grandkids were little. :)

Good morning Claudie,

It rained, lightly, all afternoon so no walk. That was good as we have been VERY dry. Light steady rain will soften the top layer so the rain we get today can soak in and not run off. Yup, its raining again. Might not walk today either as a result. The leg soreness is about gone today. I did get out a baby "jumper" and put it together this morning. My back sure did not like bending over for the few minutes it took to reassemble it! Its calming down now. Grandson is not sure what he thinks of it yet. Spent 15 minutes in it then became fussy. Bet he starts to like it more. The jumper is this.

Claudie, Had a fun time at Riverside Casino yesterday. Food was delicious also. Other couples showed up so we chatted for a few hours. The BOGO buffet lines were kind of long but it was only a ½ hour wait.
 
Purchased gas at Sam's for $3.04/gal. this morning. Saw the hummingbird filling up on nectar when I returned home. Temp was 52 °F (11.11 °C)

Hi Claudie,

I went to an ale house in Walnut, IL that I used to frequent. And I told the landlady my money was spent. I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay". She said "Cowboys like you come in here every day".

Good Morning Claudie,

Animals myths continue:

Porcupines shoot their quills.

A porcupine’s quills are made up of keratin, which is the same material our fingernails are made of. Can you shoot your fingernails? Didn’t think so. Just as we can’t shoot our fingernails (unfortunately), neither can porcupines shoot their precious defense mechanisms.

Happy Hump Day!

Good morning Claudie!

Made a slight mistake on the script It was only 16¢. What a super low cost!

Woke up before midnight last night. Completed my posts and took a 3 hour nap. The med's (percodan) is making me very sleepy. Like the feeling after staying up for an all nighter.

Had an omelet Western style for brekky. Watched several Law & Order episodes. 12 AM PST is the last day Netflix will stream the series. A phone call to Netflix said they may extend the contract. Saw the many episodes into the 12th season. Now it's time for other shows.

The first order of business was to drive to the resident orthopedist at the hospital. Have an late Friday morning appointment with the surgeon that will operate on the right hip replacement.

This is not the op, it has been more than six months since my last visit. Dr wants to refresh me on the procedure and what to expect on the days of recovery and etc.

Took a pleasant ride along the CT River Hwy to Cushman, NH which is a hamlet of the Town of Dalton, NH (pop: 979) then crossed the steel bridge into Gilman, VT.

Gilman was a mill village for the workers of the Gilman Paper Company since the 1880's. The paper mill offered heat for free in a big pipe under the main street for residents to have free heat in their company built tract homes.

The mill was bought and sold several times. The last being Durango Paper Co. Many left the mill being owed back pay, retirement, and benefits. A bit more info is found in this link.

The village of Gilman, VT is part of [L=]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunenburg,_Vermont]Lunenburg, VT.[/L] The 2000 census gives the pop: 1,328. Households are 516 w/366 families in town.

Returned home via US Rt2 in VT. Lots of color in the hills and mtns. Some silver maples by the river have hints of lemon & lime or fire orange and red. Have my heart on a shot of multicolored leaves lining both sides of the CT River.

Civil twilight is 6:15 AM EDT. Night is 6:55 PM.

Sunrise: 6:44 AM. Set: 6:26 PM.

Length of day: 11h 43m. Length of visible light: 12h 40m. Tomorrow will be 3m 3s shorter.

The temp is 52° (11°C), the high to be 72° (22°C) in mostly clear skies.

Have a fabulous day!

Good evening/morning Claudie

Thanks. Glad you liked the pictures.

If you remember a few months back, I took the Dodge to a dealership in Parkersburg (not the one in my pictures) to have my blinker problem diagnosed. They told me what the problem was and that it would be a $900 fix. I told them to put it all back together because I didn't have that kind of money. Well, in April I found a local repair shop that quoted me $413 Parts, Labor, and Sales Tax. I told them when I did get the money together, I'd come to them. Well that didn't happen until about a week ago. I called them because it had been awhile since I last talked to them. Turns out they can still order the part and for even cheaper. My total cost will now come to $204. A significant drop in price. And they said they'd add a can of blinker fluid at no extra charge. What a deal!

Temps still holding in the low 60s here. Rain off and on.

Good evening/night Claude!

I had a pretty decent day, so did Mom!

The day didn't start so well, but it got better. I woke up hearing what I thought was the new neighbor moving in stuff to his apartment. I was upset with all the racket. Then, around 11, I finally got up and ready to take Mom out to get her haircut. As I was pulling out the driveway, an old man came up to me and apologized for all the noise. Then, he told me something disturbing. He said, "Did you know your neighbor died?" Then he went on how he died by having some kind of all a few weeks ago at his old house and was buried last week. So, now this guy and some other guys are over there getting things out and thought they better get out since it is the end of the month. The sad thing is that I never met this "new" neighbor, I've seen his car over here parked in the driveway next to mine, but never seen him come in and out. So, here we go again to hopefully our landlord bother me too much. I did pay him what he wanted this time for Oct. So, hopefully there shouldn't be a problem. Also, I hope if he finds someone, it is someone decent!

Anyway, now on to the fun stuff. I got Mom out and we got over and got her haircut. She feels much better! We stopped to grab a bite for lunch on the way. We didn't go anywhere fancy, just to my usual breakfast spot, Biscuitville. (That's a local chain which mostly located in NC and a few in Virginia.) They started doing a few lunch items so I wanted to try one of them. You can find out more at www.biscuitville.com. Also, you can print out a $2 off coupon for one of their new lunch combos. I used one today.

After we got her haircut, we had to run to the Credit Union to get a paper notarized, but found out they can't do it until tomorrow since it is dated for October. So, I found out the notary person will be there when I'm off again this Saturday. I just have to have Mom sign the paper in front of the notary. So, I have to get her out again then. (BTW, this paper doesn't have anything to do with her Medicaid or current situation. The estate from her mother who passed on in 2008 is still open and I think this is the last part of it.)

Unfortunately, the fun had to come to an early end, I had to get to work at 4. So, I got her back and she dreaded going back. She kept on saying "back to staring at four walls again." I really wish I can find something for her to do. There are activities there such as games like Bingo and movies, and Bible studies. The problem is she needs help getting to the dining hall where they are held. So, most of the time she's stuck in bed all day. I tried to bring puzzle books for her to do, but I haven't seen her to do any. I'm not sure if she can see them since she lost her glasses when she had to move out of her apartment and haven't been able to afford a new pair. I'm going to check in and see what I can get her.

Well, I had to get to work at 4 like I said. The weather was just perfect and I didn't want to go. But, I did. It was crazy. Remember I mentioned about those big honchos coming in last week? They are back this week. Some kind of show the store is doing for them. I'm not sure what's going on, but, the usual, frenzy of management getting excited making sure everything is neat and tidy in the store! So, it is going to be an "exciting" week! Now, I go in tomorrow morning at my so-called "usual" time 10-4 for the rest of the week except Sat.

So, enjoy this wonderful fall day (what's left of it!)

Hi, CLaudie:
No the company just completes cutting out the sheetrock,mremoving sheetrock, insulation, carpet/pad removal. They then take out any wood, treat the mold, take down the curtains and scrub the entire room. Air registers are closed off, as well as the entire room sealed.

HEPA Fans run to dry the exposed wood, dry the floorin & ceiling. They spray antibacterial solutions on flooring, ceiling, and walls.
The air quality test was completed yesterday, and I am waiting for results to be emailed or printed and faxed to me to pay for remainder of the work.

We are getting 2 estimates for sheetrock work. Will likely go with my manicurist's husband as he works for a co. that does high end houses ($1M up), or high end remodeling.

Since hubby has no vacation at this time to do it himself or w/my son, we are farming out the work. Hubby is installing insulation himself, as it is an exterior wall, and will do the painting himself, but I plan to get more estimates for painting as we have 25 ft. walls in that area.

Yes, the pedicure was heaven!

Hiya attitash,

Hoping my dentist appointment goes well, too (next Thursday); it's also a cleaning and a check-up.

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Back home and IN for the rest of this day!

Well, not exactly true. I got home about 11:15 to drop off what I got at WM and then hubby and I immediately went out to lunch at Subway (I got a chopped turkey-and-ham salad); then I headed right over to get my hairs cut, while hubby just went straight home.

Hello, sandipaws, Farful, dickc49, and kathybye!

sandipaws, I did both of what you said...enjoyed the time with Mom (well, not including the time in WM where she went one way and I went another) and now am enjoying some sunshine! Yay!

Farful, have a great time with your friends at lunch!

dick, I heard last night's game was ugly, but I haven't read why; I guess it was mostly b/c of the score? That's good about yesterday's walk; hope you can do at least another mile today, but maybe not be as sore tomorrow.

kathybye, so that company's only doing the cleaning up part? Are they also putting in the insulation and the sheetrock, too? Enjoy the pedicure! I had mine yesterday! Aaahhh, that foot/calf massage! :)

Morning, Claudie and friends:
Finally have the mold removed (very little, thank goodness), carpet removed, and room all scrubbed & clean. Now we will put the insulation in, get sheetrocking, and then hubby can paint.

Hope your day goes well. Meeting some friends for breakfast at Wildflower Bread Company, and then a pedicure (first one in 5 months).

Take care; enjoy getting your hair done!

Good morning Claudie,

Well I was right to worry about last nights game. Boy did the Chiefs take it to the Patriots! That game was U G L Y!

Got a one mile walk in yesterday. Felt some discomfort through the right hip as I started, and it stayed steady throughout the walk. That is quite a change from before where I would have it start building as I walked and get real bad at about a quarter mile. I felt so good at the half mile mark I almost kept going around the pond. That route is a mile and one half. Made myself stick to the plan and turned around and went home. Knees were a bit sore later (normal) and this morning my upper hamstrings are a bit sore. Good thing I capped it at a mile! Will try to get another mile in today, but will have to watch the weather as we have some showers trying to move in, and I would like to stay somewhat dry walking. If I miss today, its not a big deal.

Hiya, grmoore,

Sheesh! You got all that rain at your house yesterday? We got a good sprinkle that lasted maybe 15 or 20 minutes late yesterday afternoon and that was it! Oh, well! Time for some sunshine, don'tcha think?

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Tuesday! 66 degrees this morning. It looks like the rain has passed. It rained most of the day sometimes downpours and other times a light drizzle. The grass and plants look satiated.

re: daughter - indeed!

I have my follow-up orthopedic appointment for my wrist today and rehearsal tonight.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, WKGaser, Dino, HappyHiker, MidnightSun, yankie, JM, pink, hmcsretired07, senile, scout, and TUrtLE!

Dino, thanks for sharing your pix of Parkersburg. :)

HappyHiker, yes, I thought the baseball playoffs started this weekend. Sorry you're going to miss most of the Dodgers' games, but have a nice trip!

MidnightSun, wow! What a GREAT price for that 'script! If they could ALL cost that price, huh? Hope you feel better today. I know you're glad that surgery is done with.

JM, I hope the Falcons do alright against the Giants; don't know much about their team except Eli Manning's the QB.

scout, okay, so no more renovating after the bathroom's done? None at all?

TUrtLE, yes, I actually knew that about koalas. :)

WKGaser, yankie, pink, hmcsretired, and senile, thanks for stopping in!

I'll be taking Mom to WM this morning, and then getting my hair cut at 12:30. Hoping to see some sunshine today, as it's been so gray and dreary for days and days now. At least the temps have been cool.

Good Morning Claudie,

From the San Diego zoo web site, "we’re here to set the record straight on a few animal myths that are widely believed–but definitely not true."

koalas are bears.

You’ve probably heard the term “koala bear” thrown around casually here and there, but contrary to popular belief, koalas have no relation to bears. While they have an uncanny likeness to teddy bears, they’re actually marsupials. Super cute, teddy bear-like marsupials.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

What's next? Rest.

Got the new outlets and switches installed in the bathroom. Also, we picked up the floor tile and all the stuff that goes with it. All that is left for us to do is build the shelf and plumb the new sink after it is installed!

Good morning Claudie~
