I think doc wrestling that big upright freezer the other day was too much for a man his age. I hope he's not down for long.

jan, sorry to hear about the horse.

BB, only one mink or a family?

Too bad about Doc. He's too cranky not to pull through.

Well, the weatherguessers are backtracking. Now we here at Chez Geezer are supposed to get a hefty amount of white plague. Not nearly as much as south and east of us, but enough to grumble about. Stay tuned.

Sorry to hear about the horse, Jan.

Tru, I hope your sister gets into a better situation.

M6, we do have lots of stange critters that show up -- fewer these days with a dog leaving his scent all over. This fall I kept seeing one big deer going the same direction several different days. Coyotes don't hang around as much as they used to, and I'm glad. We have had a mink! Lots of birds, including blue herons. Always black and grey and red squirrels, and chipmunks. Garter snakes, and really cute tiny toads, too.

M6 my sister has many signs of dementia, but in some ways she is sharp as ever. My Fearless Leader is farther along than my sis and a lot younger. My sister is 86. She is tiny, frail, and dependent on others. She is in Rehab for pneumonia the second time in just three months or so. She has made some bad choices in the past few years as to living situations.

Evening all

Another brief message from me. Bad day at the barn. Had to put the oldest horse down from a colic we couldn't get him through. We all know that we're a geriatric barn for horses but that doesn't help when you lose your friends, young or old :-(

tru, is your sis mentally competent? Pardon my asking, but she doesn't seem well.

Claudie, we've got rain, but it beats the hell out of snow.

BB, for some reason I thought you lived in an area that was full of wildlife.

Decided my pork items and leftovers do not get enough attention and get too old by not using them. So l took all the fruit out of freezer and made that shelf a pork shelf. Then l put all the fruit into the empty freezer basket in bottom of fridge/ And decided the veggies on hand were way too much for sharing, so took the fruit back out and put all the frozen veggies there. Put the fruit back in the freezer. As l was going, l listed everything, l had only listed meats before. I could see l had a whole lot more fruits and veggies than l thought, and some duplicates. Over all with breaks, it took me about 2 hours. I added all the cooked items with the fruit. Leftover small meals. So l have one shelf now of things l can eat without cooking.
Then l packaged my hamburger bought day before into approximately one pound packs and froze them. Left some out and made nachos later.

Returned 2 loaves of bread to costco as l felt it was stale. No date on it. Raisin bread at $3.20 per loaf. When returned homeward l stopped at Grocery Outlet for sour cream, Ben and Jerrys at $1.99 and cottage cheese.

My sister called from MN. and she seems happier. THere is a social worker there who has befriended her and she is now content to let her take over in getting her released to a safe home. A friend her in CA offered her a room for $500 a mo. and in the area she wants, but my sis believes she will soon be booted out of there as the lady is getting married.She refused it.

Twice she has refused places, so l am not sure she really cares about returning here in a hurry. Now she wants perfection and wants to know it will last. At first it was "I want out of here as soon as possible". Change.

After a nap l went down to visit the Fearless leader to see how she was and she has really improved once she started using the Spiriva and sprays. Imagine that...LOL.

Good evening! Fresh lovely s*** yesterday and today, but not that cold. M6, I've never heard of tracking s*** before but it's a perfect phrase! I've only seen a wild turkey around our place once, years ago. But last year I finally saw a lot of turkey tracks in the back yard, so they are still around, hidin from the cat.

geez, you're exactly right. We had more snow that expected though. I had watched something I'd recorded while I ate supper, then tried to switch back to regular TV afterwards. A message appeared on the screen that read there was interference, no signal was coming through and to try a couple of things. So, I got dressed, went outside and cleared off all the snow on the dish. That's not something I'll look forward to, but at least it wasn't mounted on the roof.

What's a tracking snow, M6 - a snow you can track critters in?

We got less than an inch from the storm this morning - it passed south of us. Monday's big storm is supposed to do the same, but I have little confidence in the weatherguessers' ability to get it right.

Good morning, jan,

All the warmer temps and rain have now moved out of our area, and we're in for high temps 'only' in the mid-to-upper-40s (as opposed to the low 60s). We got a good dousing of rain yesterday, too...a little more than an inch at my house. Now for some drying out and sunshine.

Staying home today! :)

Have a great day!

geez, I think it's nice closer to the resort cities. Of course, that's probably where it's more expensive to live.

We're finally getting a dusting of snow right now. Not enough to play in and it probably can't even be considered a tracking snow.

Morning M6, Tru, geez, Claudie and BB

Is it just me or is GB so much slower in the morning? Not sure if I'll even be able to get this to post!

We've had the most beautiful weather the last few days and my friend and I were finally able to get back on and ride our horses!! Of course the rain and 20 degree cooler temps are back this am.

Not sure if the hepafilter has been helping or not but it finally stopped the plasticky smell. So ironic that something that filters the air, pollutes it in the beginning!!

Have to go clean stalls this morning but will be a very short barn day because of the rain. We did get a lot of things done the last few days though so guess it's time to pay more attention to the house.

Winter's not back, but it has dropped 15 to 18 degrees from the last few days.

Good morning, jan and friends,

We had a good visit with hubby's sister and her husband yesterday; got into no traffic either!

geezer, Virginia? Hmmm, a little to far for me to go yesterday. :)

m6gm, when you have time, go to FB; I posted a picture there for you.

Alright! A chiro appointment for me this morning, and, boy! Do I need it, what with all the stress I've had the last coupla weeks! After my appointment there, it's off to the grocery store for me. No senior discount for me, though, but maybe I can find some good deals.

Have a great day!

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. Another pretty day with temps in the mid 50's. We've been driving around town the last few days with the windows down and the moon roof open. We've decided there needs to be an early Spring this year...let's see if Mother Nature cooperates. Took Trish to her new doctor yesterday and we go back tomorrow for a biopsy of a suspicious mole. I like this woman, but she's TINY (especially compared to some of the big uns around here).

WEnt to pick up the new prescription and refused to pay $90. So l am back at square one. Lungs hurt and fatigue. Wish my appetite would decrease, but l seem to crave food even more. So l think l will go meet my friend at the Chinese restaurant for lunch. She insists on the longer drive, and mine is only about 15 miles. I am not coughing and the temp is down.

I made chinese noodles for lunch yesterday. Chicken broth and Chinese noodles with chopped green onion on top. Didn't have any BBQ pork strips.

When my son comes next time l have a few little things l have for him to do that l haven't felt up to fooling with. Climb up on top of Armoire to plug in the correct cord to CD player, tighten up a skillet handle, put bottom drawer of cabinet in correctly so l can open the doors above it. ETC. Little things l normally do, but just don't feel like dealing with. I tried to do them and gave up.

Hubby and I are going to visit his sister today (on the northwest side of Atlanta). On the way there, though, we have 3 short stops, one including at Mom's. We should be home by mid-afternoon; got to try and get out of the city before 'rush hour.'

Looking forward to a more relaxing day (out).

Geezer, still the truck was nice to look at. Prettier than when brand new, so you are probably right about the $15 thou paint job.
Jay Leno is also a car guy, but only cars l think.

Janrey l know as l had pneumonia last year and knocked me for a loop..7 weeks. 2 weeks before it was diagnosed. That is why l get right on it now to avoid that undiagnosed part. Struggling along thinking it is the COPD. As soon as my symptoms worsen, l go or call the DR. I am old and with chronic lung disease, so l can't mess around.

I think this azithromycin may not be the correct meds tho, as l had a round of it already this year. May still go for lungs xray. will speak to Dr today about that.

Have a birthday lunch date for Wednesday, and hope l can make it. One has to eat, and my friend is driving a hundred miles to meet me. January is her birthday month also.

Evening all

Another beautiful day here and at least I spent the morning outside enjoying the weather :-)

Got my hepafilter or atleast some kind of air cleaner. Kind of afraid to start using it tonight though because some of the reviews complain of ozone type smells when you first start using it. Doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling that it causes odors at first instead of cleaning them lol Hope it helps because I can't stay on prednisone indefinitely.

Take care of yourself Tru. Pneumonia is a very scary thing My friend got back on her horse today for maybe 10 minutes and was stunned she was winded. She's very fit but had tor remind her that the pnemonia did a number on her lungs and it's going to be awhile before she is back to normal :-(

Geez aren't there some shows that require you to drive the vehicle? I know they're expensive to maintain but the love of using them should be there shouldn't it? But what do I know lol

Tru, Tim Allen is a real car guy. He can afford a top of the line restoration, including a $15,000 paint job. The problem with those over-restored vehicles is they become "trailer queens." There's so much money spent on making them perfect that they can't be driven because of the risk of paint chips or fender benders, so they put these cars into enclosed trailers, roll them out at a car show, push them back into the trailer after the show, the roll them out and into climate controlled storage when they get home.

Now I have to go over to Doc's thread to see what Choco is up to.

I got the dishes washed and some cooking done yesterday, when l realized l am having another flare up of the COPD. No wonder l have no energy. My lungs now hurt, and l am using my sprays more. The antibiotic l was on the end of last month and beginning of this month was supposed to last two weeks, and then l started noticing little nagging symptoms, but didn't connect them til yesterday. This is not uncommon for me to have flare ups, and infections. I just have to be aware of when l need to prevent pneumonia by getting on antibiotics. I run a sub-normal temp, so hard to spot quickly. Also hard for drs to agree l am infected and need antibiotics quickly.

Did a lot of cooking and baking yesterday and today l should get 2 loads of laundry done unless l start feeling worse.

Supposed to be 63 here. We are looking to be the driest January EVER.

Geezer l thought of you and your truck when l saw an old one beautiful paint job, on "Last Man Standing" last Friday. Tim Allen drove it.. Guess he likes em too.

I did promise to post today so here I am.

Christmas tree hauled out to the woods for critters to enjoy. Furniture back in place for everyday stuff. Hardwood floors all mopped and changed the air filters. That about killed me with all the dust but has to be done!!

Tomorrow I'm headed to target to look for a hepafilter. They have a much wider selection than Sam's or Walmart. I'll check Lowe's also.

I did get out to enjoy the sun some today but also opened all my windows. Sooooo nice!!!!

Good evening!

Geez, the same thing might happen with classic cars that has happened with several other areas of collecting -- prices rose sharply when people started using the internet, and that brought out a lot more supply of the items -- it has happened with stamps, books, stereo cards and I'm sure lots of other types of goods. It will be less likely to happen with old cars, because not that many people have the space to store that kind of thin any more. But I do know people with a great uncle, single, who has 5 barns and quonset huts filled with old things, mainly old tractors I've been told.

We had a friend come by today to visit -- a good thing for us since we didn't want to go out very far!

Barrett-Jackson usually has their Arizona auction around this time of year, don't they? I think a lot of the cars are over priced as well, but I like to watch.

BB, I read about Target today in the business section of the paper. It seems they jumped into the Canadian market because so any people were coming to the U.S. to shop at their stores. BUT, their prices were higher and they didn't always have the same products. Also read that Sony was closing all their stores up there.

tru,, I don't do much jumping anymore and I'd probably eat that cake before giving you a chance.

geez, choco seems to be dissing you in doc's thread.

jan, are you working for your son on the side too?

geezer, no the car shows that hubby watches are ones that show/tell you how to do/fix things in/on cars. Hmmmm, I cannot remember what channel it is (it might be Spike), but they are 4 30-minute shows that come on every Sunday morning. I think it's something called PowerNation...maybe. Anyway, he WAS watching one of the auctions last night, so it probably was Barrett-Jackson. He is amazed at the prices of those cars, too.

The last five posters mention a warm up coming...that is true here as well. I was online and looked at next 10 days and was surprised to see 70's predicted. Looked back at last January and we did have a few 70's here and there, mostly the third week of the month. Starting in Feb of last year, the temps were so regular that l stopped writing them down. Then when it got hot, l started again. I only recorded extremes.

Had a lazy day yesterday, and not what l planned. MY body just took the day off so l read all day.

No M6 you didn't miss anything.

Baylee they don't allow you to stick anything on the floors that you can't take with you. Although the manager did say l could put double stick carpet tape down to prevent it sliding. That is when l told her l did not want to pay $800 for them to put a wall to wall down and maybe next winter l could afford to buy a cotton rug for $400. I did stick tile in one place l lived, but it was due to be demolished so they didn't care. They even had a big black piece of plastic on the roof. I moved from there when they said they wanted to charge San Francisco rents.

Oh Geezer you let the cat out of the bag... M6 was going to surprise me....Yes l will turn 84 this month.

Barrett-Jackson, Claudie? Way overbid vehicles. It makes it tough on us everyday car collector to find cars to restore at reasonable prices because owners heard or saw one sort of like theirs sold for half a million at one of these auctions. Of course, there was a third of a million spent on the restoration and it's not quite the same model, etc., but they don't understand any of that...

M6, Tru's birthday in on the 30th. Did you forget? You're supposed to pop out of her cake this year.

Enjoy your day, Jan.

Good morning, jan,

Yup! Happy dancing here, too, b/c of all this continuing nice weather! Sunshine!

It's another stay-at-home day for me. Of course, I'll find things to do. Hubby's pretty much going to be watching TV most of the day...he starts off at 9 AM, watching some kind of car shows that last until 11. Then there'll be a 'short' break until about 3 PM ET (I wonder if I can get him to do some things for me?), when he'll start watching the championship football games. He doesn't have a favorite team, I don't think, but he'll be watching the games anyway. Me? I don't care WHO wins either game!

Have a great day!

We've had a major warm up for this time of year; it's 56 right now. I know we still have a good 6 more weeks of winter, but a taste of warmth is nice.

tru, did we miss a birthday?

Good morning! Strange weather in the forecast -- it's supposed to warm up a lot overnight and tomorrow, and of course that means it will also rain. So that will create a lovely layer of ice when the temps drop back to normal the next day.

M6, we have two big chains of donut shops around every corner, so no way do we need another chain trying to move in and take over. The biggest one, Tim Horton's (or just Tim's or Timmie's) also combines with lots of gas-station convenience stores, so there can be one of those on a street corner opposite a full-sized shop. One small town we sometimes drive through has SEVEN along the main drag!

The Lunch Bunch had a good turnout, 8 people yesterday, and we went to Chili's for lunch. Got a senior discount which l promptly gave to the server, coz he had to re-do all the tags, AND he put up with the teasing the wine drinkers put out. One in particular, she wasted a lot of his time and took his attention away from what he was trying to do, every time he came in view.
I had half an order of ribs and a salad. I ate my salad, while no one else had anything to eat. It cost $3.19 to add to meal. Good deal.
We took FOREVER to decide what to order and that was after taking forever to get the drinks ordered and delivered. Poor waiter. So when someone said how slow they were, l reminded them of that. The hour after we arrived before getting our lunch was NOT all their fault. 10 minutes to wait for large table to be set up, 10 minutes to order and deliver drinks, 20 minutes to decide on what to order so we only waited for food 20 minutes by that time. Some of the people had not eaten that day at all, so were starving. I get up early and had had breakfast and even tapioca , so l wasn't starving. It was 1pm or later when we got there, so they should at least have had something before then.

I was asked if l wanted won tons for birthday celebration, and l thought won ton soup, and got befuddled, but then realized she was talking of the stuffed and fried won tons she brought to a pot luck that l had made such a fuss over....they were good.
So l readily agreed that would be nice, perfect as a matter of fact.

I have that and then 2 lunches to go this month. One that l share with a friend when we meet every year to catch up...she lives aways away and l see her only then. The other is because l took a lady to lunch and she wants to repay. It is not why l did it so l may turn her down. She wants to be correct and stay even, but that kinda makes it void the treat l gave her for her birthday. The way l see it. I took her to lunch as a treat, not to start a yearly thing. I hope that will explain it to her.

The other one is the group's get together that we have for each person's birthday. Sometimes a pot luck. Sometimes just a cake.

Baylee l remember a short lived Krispy Kreme in our town too. Went once, next time l went looking, it was gone.

I got a reply from the management company and they said "A little constructive criticism is good"
