Wow, has the weather changed! Ninety-one yesterday (only the fourth day in the 90's this summer so far) and really humid. Then the thunderstorms and now cooler and much less humid. Great!

Back up to the "income" property today for more cleanout.

Good morning, jan,

Hubby's happy; while I was at the grocery store yesterday, I was able to get red grapes for 99¢/lb. We don't see that low a price very often or ever! I just might have to go back to Kroger on Monday or Tuesday and get some more blueberries and grapes (on sale) before the new sale week starts on Wednesday. :)

Have a great day!

Good morning! Tru, I've used craigslist a lot, and not had any real problems. I've bought things, given stuff away and even gotten things for free. The only real problem was once when someone said she would sell us something, but then her dog was sick and she had to deal with that. Naturally I was sympathetic and left her alone for a few days. When I got back to her she said that she has already sold the items -- grrrrrr! I did send her a nasty email over that. Anyway, overall our experiences have been very useful. And you can avoid problems by just being careful. I'm including Geez' experience as a positive one, since he of course realized instantly that the idiot on the other end had no idea.

Geez, too bad you can't figure out a way to mail that transmission to the scammer -- mail it first class, COD! Or maybe even airmail, since that would cost even more.

It's COOL here! Yay! Unfortunately that means that I won't have any excuse to avoid mowing . . . . .

Morning:
I am scared of Craigs List. Don't want strangers coming to my door, don't want to meet them in parking lots since l read of one grabbing the merchandise and giving no money. Then there was the Craigs list rapist/murderer. A fine upstanding young man studying to be a DR. Boy howdy.

Jan, I'd like to use the band saw, but it needs a replacement wheel. The barber chair was my grandfather's, and one of my sisters now says she wants it. All she has to do is go over and get it.

Where'd it all come from? Well, the barber chair is obvious, but most of the other stuff came from my father's hoarding.

Funny you mentioned Craigslist, Jan. One of my father's treasures is a 3 speed transmission out of an early Corvette....only it turns out it's from a '55, '56, or '57 Chevy passenger car. I put it on Craigslist for 50 bucks, and got a response rather quickly. Great, I thought, until the followup email:

"Thanks for the prompt response to my mail.I will be buying the merchandise
from you and will be adding $50, so please kindly withdraw the advert from
CRAIGSLIST.and i will be paying you via bank certified check from my Bank
and the payment will be delivered to you via Federal Express Courier (
FEDEX OVERNIGHT) and i will like you to get back to me with the following
information to facilitate the mailing out the check to you... kindly get
back to me with the below

Name to be on the payment...........
Home address...........
City..............
State...........
Zip Code..............
Cell phone #................
Last Asking price..............

I will make arrangements for the pick up as soon as you have your money I am
completely satisfied with the advert and the payment will be delivered to
you overnight (next day delivery from my bank by fed
ex).** I use a hearing impaired phone # and will receive your calls via
email **

N.B : FEDEX does not deliver to a P.O box addresses.Thanks"

I can't post here what my response was.

BB, probably all that old fan needs is a rewired motor. Do the have an armature works there?

geez, where the hell did you get all that stuff? jan's right; you can probably make some money off craigslist.

tru, whole chickens are $.99 a pound this week and I want some. The only problem will be finding a place to put them.

Claudie, I'm a lot younger than your mom and I don't go that much...not sure I'd even want to!

Good morning! All of this conversation has inspired me to take an old floor fan to get repaired. It's a very solid old metal one that we used forever till it ground to a halt a few years ago. But the local hardware has someone who comes in and repairs things!

Our friends who are moving to Kingston are doing that mostly because of the costs of living in TO. For what they have sold their current house, they have a smaller house there, but with private parking and a bigger garden. They plan to have some work done, and then invest the remainder of their profit in a rental property. And they plan on getting one with a couple of flats to rent out. I hope it works out for them! They point out that the city has a big university, Queens, plus the Royal Military College, so there are always students looking for a temp place to live. So we shall see what happens -- that will take at least a couple of years to work out.

Morning:
It is extreme weather when we get July rain, but we did yesterday. Very slight but wet never the less. Now we are going back to our usual starting to heat up.
I jokingly said l sent the housekeeper out to do my errands because of the wet weather, and she has naturally curly hair while l have to set mine. But l did send her to buy the $5 t tissue. l still have to go to buy the $18 worth of meat and then it will save $3.50 off the $18. Good deal and l am thinking rib eye steak.
Instead of waiting for housekeeper to arrive, l went ahead and cleaned up the dresser and spray painted it.
LOL at your hubby's solution to squirrels. Don't know what l would have done to that problem. Like them, but outside. Wouldn't use poison. (or a gun) Did have a similar problem in the country with animals getting into the attic. I made sure the openings were covered with wire. Worked. Some animals will chew their way in tho. I understand racoons do when they want in they work a way at it til they get in. Smart critters.

Morning Claudie, BB, Tru, geez, ohyeah and M6

We too had more rain last night and I'm not sure my ride won't get rained out again this morning :/

Ohyeah my car isn't quite 3 years old but I need to take it back in and get it checked because my gas mileage is getting horrible!! It started to decrease badly with the new tires but has continued to get worse. I'm all about gas mileage so it might have to get traded for a newer more efficient one!

Geez do you want the bandsaw or is it something you could put on craigslist and sell it from the rental. Maybe the same with the barber chair?

Claudie last week I was go go going and ate lunch out almost every day. I'm trying not to be that bad this week not only for what it costs but of course the things I want to eat are not what I should be eating :/

I should bring a box fan home from the barn. I have ceiling fans but they don't get the air movement that I'd like. Thanks for the reminder lol

Good morning, jan,

We got a little bit more rain close to midnight last night. I checked the rain gauge this morning and we got another 3-tenths-of-an-inch. Not too bad. :) Sheesh! We go for a coupla weeks without getting ANY at all and now we're getting a good amount every day! <shakes head>

This is a busy going-out week for Mom (and the other residents of the ALF)...yesterday they went to a dollar store, today I'm taking her to WM, Thursday they're going to a minor league baseball game and Friday they're going out to eat at a country-style eating place. PLUS it's possible that my brother will be visiting her this weekend, and he usually takes her out to eat lunch somewhere also. And that doesn't even include any activities AT the ALF! Whew! She's going to need a rest! :)

Have a great day!

Back to the income property for more cleanout today. I'm getting there, but the stuff I didn't want to deal with is coming soon. Paint cans, scrap barn boards, a band saw that weighs more than I can lift, a barber chair, etc. I don't know what I'm going to do with it all, and it has to be out soon.

Afternoon jan, BB, tru, Claudie and geez. We picked another batch of cucumbers today, but we don't have room in the fridges for anymore pickles. We've canned 28 quarts and 3 gallon jars so far. Tomatoes are still green though.

BB, I have a 20" box fan that I put in the computer room window when it's cool enough. I want to get new windows soon which might not open high enough to set the fan in, but we'll see.

tru, I applaud your inventiveness. Lots of folks would just have someone else do it or quit altogether.

Good morning! Sorry we got back too late last night to do any posting.

The fan I use the most is just a basic 16- or 18-inch that sits in front of a window. I don't put it right in the window opening since I don't want it to get wet, obviously, but for some reason I've never figured out the rain never comes in the south-facing windows in this house. So that window can stay open all the time, and the fan a few inches inside is always safe. The 2nd floor of the house can heat up a lot in summer, but the one fan reduces that a lot. And when it cools at night we can use a big one at the back door at night to suck the hot air out, or blow the cool in.

It has been cloudy most of the time for the last week, and keeps wanting to rain. But the total rain is probably very low. Not a problem, as there has been no lack of rain overall.

My windows have so much condensation on them I didn't know it was raining until the Trugreen man arrived and told me they needed to reschedule. I'm hoping it's a brief shower and that I can ride in just a bit!

Tru your solution for the rat was better than hubby's when we had squirrel problems. He got so angry one night he got out his civil musket and fired through the sheet rock into the attic in our bedroom!! It just had a black powder load so I guess he thought he would just deafen them(and me) lol

Morning:
M6 I actually own a dolly, lightweight but usuable. Would have been hard for me to lift it and the dresser weight on top of it. Up the slope and the step. So my way worked for me.
It's in and nearly full. Still needs washing down as the paint is marked up.
I will let the housekeeper do that.
I went into the details of the move coz l think it is funny how l do things now that l used to do so easily. Or eg..the rat poison l had to put in the wall of the cabin l used to live in. They scampered all night in the wall at my head and l couldn;'t sleep. The wall was unfinished so l pried open a tiny
spot and put a straw in and fed the poison down thru it to a cross piece. It was quiet from then on, and l nailed the wall board back.

Good morning, jan,

It pretty much rained most of the day yesterday (just like Saturday). We ended up getting about another inch, and that makes the total about 2½ inches for Saturday and Sunday. Wow! Everything's so wet! Good thing this wasn't the scheduled Monday for the yard guy to come; we'd definitely have to reschedule!

Did you know that yesterday was the 45th anniversary of man first walking on the moon? I sure remember watching the TV with my family when Neil Armstrong got out and and took those first steps!

Well, I'm going back out and about today! Looks like any rain is supposed to be for this afternoon, so I should stay dry. I've got an appointment at the nail salon and then a coupla places to stop on the way home. It should be an good morning out. :)

Have a great day!

Afternoon jan, oy, BB, Claudie, geez and tru. Trish got home about an hour ago, took a shower and went to take a nap. I've been getting up at 4 for the past 4 mornings to watch the British Open, so I'm about to follow her.

oy, that's not a bad deal. I've been thinking about raiding my IRA and buying a new one, but there's some other things I want to do first.

Claudie, no rain yet and this week doesn't look too good either.

BB, I'd love to have a whole house fan, but I bet it does get kinda cool in the mornings.

tru, couldn't you borrow a dolly from the complex?

Morning Tru, geez, M6, ohyeah, Claudie and BB

One thing I really really love about Sunday mornings is I can sleep in if I want to. Bad night with allergies last night. Took way more benadryl that I care to but it's that or get zero sleep :/

Claudie we got a minimal amount of rain yesterday but it stayed overcast and kept the temps down so loved that!!

Spent almost the entire day from 9:30 til 6:30 at the barn trying to get back into the swing of things. Was really nice but my body is talking to me a bit today. I am not able to lift and walk with the 50 lb feed bags and lift muck buckets but the muck buckets can't quite be as full as I used to be able to do but that for sure will come back!

Tru I just love the way you get er done!! I'm finding that I have to do things differently because of my surgery. Hoping that my flexibility will continue to improve but until then I make do.

M6 I'm keeping the 55" inch tv and waiting on the wall mount that my son ordered for me. Hopefully that will all be done next weekend. Of course now that I'm getting back to my usual self I'm not watching much tv during the day and too tired at night. OH well. That should go away eventually also.

BB are you talking about an attic fan? Had one at the other house. Wish I had one here on the beautiful mornings so I could open the house up and exchange all the air fairly quickly.

Geez I'm still trying to get boxes unpacked of things I brought from Florida. My crystal is sitting alongside my crystal cabinet still packed away :/

Ohyeah congrats on the car!! I've been looking at the new honda fits but just not crazy about the way they look. I'll check them out at some point though because I have to have a hatchback.

Today just needs to be an easy no hard work day and I'll be ready to start my week again tomorrow :-)

Morning:
Sounds like a good plan Geezer.
While l am dragging in old furniture to my apartment that is left by dumpster. I pass on a whole lot but when it is storage type, then l want it. This is probably better suited to a bedroom, but it is white and l put it in frontroom next to white TV armoire,and moved bookshelf to bedroom. I like it coz it is real wood, not that pressed stuff. So it isn't pretty. l could paint or stain. Except my breathing would object.
Since l have no one to help me, the housekeeper is tiny, l figure ways to do things on my own. Have had some adventures that way.
I took out all the drawers. Measured it and then rolled it in like a square wheel, til l got to a floor where l could slide it. Then l brought in the shelves. It took a long time as l have to get my wind back in between each effort, but l finally got it in and started filling the drawers. Storage is what l need. All the effort was worth it.
In between when rested, l emptied the dishwasher and put away the laundry. Set up a few more weeks of my medications while waiting for the thyroid pill l ordered.
Harvested some decent sized potatoes and cooked them.
Fed and watered the back yard. Special tomato food to that plant. Soon will have an artichoke. Smile.

I'm making slow, steady progress emptying out the "income" property. I'm at the point where almost all of the stuff I'm discarding has been discarded, and now I have to bring what's left down to my house - where there isn't a lot of room for it. I put up an eight foot shelf in the garage for some of the lighter stuff (It is over where the truck is parked, so I don't want to tax it with heavier things, just in case...

Good morning, jan,

Well, we did pretty good in the rain department yesterday; it rained off-and-on all day, and we ended up getting 1½ inches in the rain gauge. Nice! :) More is predicted for today, too.

m6gm, did ya get any of the rain yet?

Hubby picked a whole bunch of cherry tomatoes yesterday, and he might eat them today. As for the bigger ones, I don't think any more are ready yet. He will just have to wait another day or 2 to have his tomato sandwiches. :)

No plans to go out today. More porch time maybe :)

Have a great day!

Good evening! M6, your post reminded me to turn off the fan that brings outside air into the bedroom. Most years I turn it on in about May and off sometime in Sept. maybe. This week I had to get up early one morning to turn it off!

And I had lots of fun this a.m. too -- cat threw up on the middle of the bed, of course. Had to change a few layers of covers, but at least I got things off and soaking immediately. Don't thing there will be any stains - fingers crossed. That's the 2nd time in less than two months.

jan, have you decided on what you're going to do with your tv yet?

Good Afternoon!

Well, last Saturday I decided to go and see what my Hyundai dealer was talking about... I have been getting emails and phone calls from the dealership... "We need your used Hyundai Elantra... Demand is HUGE... Bring it in and buy a new one!"

I took my little red Hyundai Elantra in and let them see what see what they could do. Now mind you, I have only had the car for 3 years and 17 days... I am in a brand new Elantra Limited (the old on was just a plain Elantra). It now has leather interior, 8 way power seats, heated seats, including the back seats (I guess they don't want my butt to get cold!), premium sound system, the coolest wheel covers, and lots lots more for (are you ready for this...) only $29 more per month!!! And, the length of the contract remained the same!!!! They gave me $2,000 OVER the buy out for my little red Hyundai!!!

I REALLY feel like I did well!!!! What do you think????

Good morning, jan,

Sometimes I don't know how I do all the running around I do either!

It started raining some time over night, and rained pretty hard (it seemed) at times. When I checked the rain gauge just a while ago, there was about 3-tenths-of-an-inch in it. Looking outside and seeing how drenched everything looks, I would have thought there would be more in the rain gauge. Oh, well, it's better than nothing! The good news is that it's supposed to rain off and on pretty much all day. Happy grass!

Have a great day!

I'm not sure what's happening to my days but I know if I don't post here in the morning they just slip sliding away!!

I still haven't commented on M6s neighbor! Shows how far behind I am :/ but that being said, he wouldn't be in the house or worried about a divorce if he had laid a hand on me!! He'd be safer in jail.....

Been riding my horses, working on getting more pictures etc. on the wall, got son to order wall mount for tv but won't be here until next week. That'll be a weekend project :-)

But I'm running late this am as usual. Still don't know how Claudie does as much as she does!

Promise I'll try and get back here this afternoon :-)

BB, the house didn't sell. She took it off the market for the winter and is thinking again about selling. It's quite the hassle for her and she's stalling.

As careful as I was with those cabinets, the guys at the Habitat store managed to rip the side off one and the bottom plate off two others. They said they'd fix them before offering them for sale. I'm not so sure.

M6, I wish! Here's an odd fact, though -- one of them bought a flat in London (the real one, not Ont.). It may be a 50-year lease, but they have been there and furnished it. BUT last I heard it was rented out, so if they go again they will have to pay the same outrageous rents as everyone else.

The SO has relatives in Eng, and Scotland, but no one close enough to London to stay there and do day trips. Just as well for them, really!

Hi Janrey,

Took a ride up to Davis Junction, IL on the Hooterville Express this morning. Stopped at the Shady Rest Motel. Yep, Uncle Joe was there and man was he movin' kinda slow.

Good morning! Well, it will probably be afternoon by the time I post this . . . .

Geez, whatever happened with your daughter's nice stone house -- did it sell? I'm still sorry we couldn't haul it up here.

Sunny and getting warmer for the weekend. Bonus! I may go on a garden tour tomorrow, and Sunday there's the party for our friends who are moving. Kind of a house-cooling?

Morning:
I woI ke to the sound of drip, drip, dripping and amazed when opened door, all sidewalks were wet. l guess it was almost rain. Near rain or maybe rain?
It was predicted to be foggy, but it would have been very wet fog to make that much water on the sidewalks. Could be. Anyway it is moisture and l will take it. If all the brown tall grassy areas get dampened down, then fires are less likely to spread as far.
I wear cotton sweaters, and have to dry them in sunshine, so guess l will pull the one l have in the laundry for today. If l put it in the dryer, it would shrink to dolly size.
Divorces are tough and made tougher by the actions of one of the participants. l heard once that marriage license should be free and divorce license should cost a whole lot, but in the case we have been discussing, l think it should be free.

Today I'm making a trip to the local Habitat for Humanity Store with all our old kitchen cabinets. Amazingly, they all fit in the minivan - minus the two that were destroyed when they were removed.

Good morning, jan,

Aaaaaahhhhh! Another cool morning for us! It's 62° and the dew point is 60°. Wonderful for sitting out on the back porch with hubby! What a way to start the day! :)

Have a great day!

Good evening!

M6, I agree with others about the wife's having a good lawyer - let's hope so. He sounds like a real &$#$%^#$%^.

Another lovely day, but it keeps thinking about raining. Bugs are still bad, but should get better in a few more weeks.

Some friends are moving out of town, so they have invited the usual crowd that goes to their Xmas parties. It will feel strange - going there in July, and knowing that it will be the last time. They're only going to Kingston, so it's not that far away, at least.

Afternoon jan, lucky, tru, geez, Claudie and 330. Today was the last of our cool days as well, but they'll be here in abundance in 2 or 3 more months.

As to the Camaro, there may have been a payment due today. He came home around lunchtime, and someone else pulled out with their camper. It sleeps 10, but not really comfortably. I hope she has a good lawyer.

geez, I'll be chasing that little white ball all over God's creation tomorrow.

Hi Janrey,

I was in Sublette, IL today and folks there are centuries ahead of everyone else. Everything they think, do and say, is in the pill they took today.

Morning;
M6 that camero was coz he beat her up? I'd get rid of it and him. Disgusting end to a long marriage. Sad. I hope she is not still with him or vice versa. Once a man hits a woman and gets away with it......

Hey Janrey: We've got your 80's and won't give them up. Sorry.

M6, you might be able to get a pretty good deal on that Camaro...

Beating a little white ball to death today. Great weather!

Good morning, jan,

Our cool weather is still here...at least for one more day. Loving it, too, here in mid-July! The temperature right now is about 60° and the dew point is 54°. These cooler temps are supposedly all over with after today, and then we go back to 'normal' summertime temps. Can't wait for Autumn!

m6gm, oh, my! What a story (about the neighbor guy)! :(

I am going to the chiro this morning. Good thing, too, since I am having some issues with my left shoulder (shoulder blade?).

Have a great day!

Morning BB, Lucky, Gez, Tru, Claudie and M6

Lucky I see you on FB and it's not only the kiddos that are keeping you busy! But happy to see you here also when you have that odd spare moment!

We finally got a bit of rain last night. I'm sure not nearly enough and supposedly having a bit of a cool down. 90 beats 100 but I was hoping to see a few days back in the 80s. Wishful thinking for SC I guess :/

Why do I always forget to hit send?1/1

Afternoon jan, geez, BB, lucky, tru and Claudie. We got kind of a shock this morning when we went to go shopping; the neighbors put their house up for sale. I've been here 17 years, and they were here 4 or 5 years before me. Trish went to talk with the lady of the house when she came home for lunch and found out that her husband had been having an affair for the last 9 years, ran up a $2,000 phone bill (porn) and an expensive satellite bill (more porn) and beat her so badly she had to take 3 weeks off work. He wants way more than the house is worth, but I told Trish to remember he'll only get half, at best. Sad. I thought he was having a mid-life crisis when he bought her a new Camaro a couple of months ago, but apparently, it was just guilt.

Good morning!

Tru, some people around here are complaining about the summer weather not being warm enough. I'm not! One big advantage where we are is that it always cools down at night, and this year it's comfortable every night.

I went to a dog-training talk last night, but without any dogs there. Not much of it applies to our guy, but he does have some annoying habits!

Jan, still sounds like you are doing very well with your recovery. And the main reason is that you are working so diligently at the physio, etc. We have one friend who has had her knees done, and the reason she had the need at a relatively yound age is because she has always been quite heavy (since we have known her, about 20 years). Since she hasn't lost any weight, I'm not sure how long her improvements will last.
