They have frosts in FLA too, at least that is what they claim when raising orange prices. "The frost wiped out the crop"
So don't plan on daily golf Geezer.

I am looking at the sales and l just can't come up with enough to buy than will give me a $5 rebate on $30 spent. Is that good, or bad? Bout all l need is fresh fruit. I see beets are down to .50c each. Grape harvest is here.

Good afternoon!

Years ago I watched the SO do some sanding of drywall, and I asked him why he wasn't wearing a mask that time. He didn't really answer, and later he had an episode of what we a few months later realized was asthma. So we both now pay a lot more attention to things like that.

And another point to keep in mind: saying that you can't breathe is the best way to get to the front of the line at the hospital emerg. Or the worst way to get a rapid response!

M6 l had a non-productive cough for several years off and on and found it went away when l used allergy meds like Zyrtec, Clariten which l am on now. Just sinus draining. Even tho when l went to a nose,ear, throat specialist , l was told that couldn't possibly be the cause. Works for me and now my dr also said try Clariten (l use generic from costco which saves a bundle) as he uses it daily. Soon as l start coughing l take a generic clariten and it stops. Won't hurt to try it? Dr will give a sample even.
Zyrtec makes me sleepy so Clariten is best for me.

Morning lucky, BB and M6

Lucky I'm doing ok. Getting a few things done before we all get together for the funeral. It's downtown Columbia so takes a while to get there.

M6 BB is right. Probably the last thing Trish should be doing is painting right now. My allergies are pretty bad right now but my breathing is still good. Guess that's the most important thing!!

Geez I think the golfers here play for several more months. Last year was just so cold early on that it made the course and our pastures of course look awful!!

Good evening!

Jan, too bad about your horse and book friend. I hope she gets a good sendoff tomorrow.

M6, is she breathing in any of the paint fumes? Are you using a brush or spraying it on?

Geez, the mere fact that you could golf all year round in Fla. is just a tiny coincident, isn't it?

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, tru and Claudie. Trish has had a rough non-productive cough for about 3 or 4 weeks now and the dr. told her last week that it was just her blood pressure meds and changed them. She wasn't any better yesterday, so I made her call and get another appointment this morning. I asked the doc to give her a chest x-ray and put her on azithromycin, which she did, and she also put her on a nebulizer. One of the two should clear her up. That pretty much took up half the day. Tomorrow, more paint!

Afternoon all

I don't know how someone who has a life as quiet as I do gets so busy sometimes :/

More sad news at the barn on Saturday. Lost the oldest member of our book club to cancer. She had a horse at the farm that made it to 32. At that point I had no idea they live that long. Then she would go to all the horse shows with us and be our horse show mom. She will definitely be missed :-( Funeral service tomorrow at 11. I think the majority of us can make it. Some just can't reschedule around their jobs.

It finally cooled off a bit but it's been rainy and grey since Friday. It's interfering with all of my outdoor activities.

Thankfully I don't drink coffee. Starbucks or any other kind for that matter. I know lots of people tha can't possibly start their day without it!!

Going to try and ride in between the rain showers in just a few minutes. Horses were getting their shoes this morning so I went ahead and scheduled an oil change.

I'll try and do better. I really have been slacking lately :-(

Unbelievably quiet Sunday...I even went to Walmart for something to do. My list was short, but they didn't have but one thing. Wanted a support peg for the shelves that fell out, some medicated powder, Goldbond, and coffee filters. Maybe some poppy seed. All they had was coffee filters. Which was a surprise, coz l had at one time made 4 or 5 trips before they finally restocked them. So l bought 200.

Yes l like coffee too and drink 2 cups every morning. But to go out daily, not just weekly but daily, to an expensive place like Starbucks, not the corner McDonald's , is not for me. This lady has a better than thou way of one upping you no matter what you say. A couple of the ladies have tired of that. This Starbucks thing is just part of that.IMO.
It is fine except when you are borrowing money to pay your cell phone bill before the end of the month. Guess l am still upset that a couple of things borrowed, have not been returned or paid back.

I took some of my chicken breast brought back from the potluck and dipped it in flour and seasoned it and fried it up and it was good that way.
I pulled some greenbeans from the garden that the birds ate to pieces and now l have 3 empty barrels. Wish l had some good winter crops to grow. Pansies are coming up in one pot on their own and another flower in the other. So l will let them grow there til spring.

Good morning, jan,

Wow! Cool! It rained nice and slow overnight, though, I don't remember that being said in the forecast; don't really know when it started, but the rain gauge has almost a ½-inch in it. :)

m6gm, lucky you couldn't get the Falcons game; it was NOT a good one (well, from my perspective)! BTW, the Tour Championship...I finally got it that it was a golf tournament in Atlanta; I happened to see the ending of it yesterday, and THAT'S when it hit me! Didn't even realize it was going on.

No errands for me today. :) I do have a few things to take care of at home, though, including some phone calls. Probably a good thing, too, since it looks like it could be another cloudy (maybe drizzly day). We'll see as the day goes on.

Have a great day!

Good evening!

I don't drink coffee at all, and I make much better tea than the stuff that's for sale. And if Tru's friend goes to Starbuck's twice a day, five days a week, even if she only spends $2.00 a shot, that would be over $1,000 every year. That could buy a pretty good freezer!

Geez, I'll stop sending weather down there for now, but the real north winds just love to blow round about February. This warning will give you a chance to get ready, right?

Another beautiful day, although it did start out in the 40's. I did turn on the furnace before I went to bed just to make sure everything is working like it should.

geez, I figure we're still about a month away from using the gas fireplace.

tru, I've never had a Starbucks coffee. I like coffee, but not at $4 a cup.

Claudie, as usual, that's a game I won't get to see.

We cooled way down from our "heat wave" of one day in the 90's. Down to 78 today and windy.

Our Fearless Leader called me from her daughter's and said she was babysitting and wouldn't be home this weekend. Tell everyone.
I told her l was planning to tell them that she was spending the weekend with her lover.

Baylee, l dunno about anyone else. Just one who wanted to buy my old freezer that l gave to Salvation Army. She may get one someday, right now she is always broke. I suggested she stop her twice daily visits to Starbucks, but she was offended, saying she doesn't buy expensive drinks.

Tru, good for you for not letting them get away with nonsense. Are there any other residents that have or want to get appliances that don't fit into those phony guidelines?

The reasons given me about the dishwasher just don't add up. They told me the lease states you are not allowed to add any appliances without written permission, yet l bought my own refrigerator, my own counter top oven and my own freezer as well as the dishwasher. They do not require notes for any of them, even tho l am quoted the lease as the reason for requiring a note for the dishwasher...then she said it was because a washer or dishwasher might flood. I laugh because l have had floods in senior apts, caused by the toilet backing up, yet no dr note is required for toilets. LOL

Went to my doctor and he read the little note l typed up and refused to sign it. He said he has NEVER heard of such a thing. Got all indignant and wants to talk directly to the manager to see just what it is she wants. So l gave him that. He was agreeable to giving me what l needed , just wants to word it exactly in phraseology that a doctor would use. He tried quoting to the secretary/nurse, then just said "get her phone number, l want to talk to her".
I would have thought and said "I am surprised you don't get asked for reasonable accommodation notes all the time" and he said no only once for a PG&E reduction in rates, but NEVER for an appliance.

So it drags on. But l am getting my linoleum fixed and whatever problems l have l am being helped with immediately. The power of social media, especially Yelp.

Afternoon jan, BB, geez, Claudie and tru. It's only been up to 66 today and they're saying it might get down in the 40's by tomorrow night. We'll have Indian Summer before too long, though.

geez, do they remind you of Ralphie's brother on A Christmas Story when they're all bundled up?

jan, mom had the carport enclosed last year and I forgot to ask if the doors had a back up or were put on the emergency generator. She'll at least need to be able to get the Rover out...unless the driveway gate isn't hooked up either.

BB, I heard something about the mayor last week. He might have been on one of the late night shows.

Claudie, the person who wins the Tour Championship will probably win the FedEx cup too, with a first place prize of $10,000,000.

Wow! The idiot mayor is back to running for his old seat on council, and his slightly-smarter-but-much-nastier bro is now running for mayor. And all in the last hour before the lists closed at 2 p.m. I bet no one in TO with a radio or internet did any work in the last hour!

M6, sorry I didn't answer you sooner. Yes, we have always wanted to replace our house, literally since before we bought it. We love the site, but the house was built may decades ago, out of poor-quality materials, and not well maintained. We started out trying to make improvements, etc. but now even those changes are not working properly. We just need to find a source of cash for a re-build.

Morning geez, M6, Tru, Claudie and BB

I'm hoping yesterday was our last day of 90 degree weather!! That doesn't mean I want instant winter either. A nice long moderate fall would be nice don't you think?

Tru I guess I've assumed where you live is structured for senior citizens and you wouldn't need letter from your Dr. about accomodations. The trip hazards you're talking about though would seem to be a priority. They may be worried about inspections when they should be way more worried about law suits!!

When I had the new flooring installed one of the reasons I had plywood put under it is 1)it's the correct way to do it and 2)I didn't want major changes in flooring throughout the house.

Geez you really do play with some weather wimps! Under 50 just means I put on long sleeves to ride lol

M6 I never thought about there being a battery backup. Maybe there is....I'll try to use the remote or keypad next time and see if it works. I'll always remember you telling me I could use my gas stove even if the power was out by lighting it with matches. Just wouldn't have occurred to me!

We go into the first two weeks of November, M6. Weather dependent, of course. My friends are "weather weenies," which means they won't play if the word rain is in for forecast, or if it's below 50. I was supposed to play today, but the weather weenies backed out because there was a 50% chance of SHOWERS, not real rain. Not a drop fell. Damn weenies.

Afternoon jan, Claudie, tru, geez and BB. The "big storms" we were supposed to get yesterday afternoon/evening didn't happen, as usual. We did have heavy rain for about 45 seconds around 2 a.m., but at least he was right about things turning cooler.

Claudie, it must still be warm where you live. I've been watching the Tour Championship and all the players look like they could use a cool breeze.

geez, you've still got another 6 to 8 weeks of golfing weather don't you?

tru, a couple of senior apartment projects near here will be going through renovations soon. They are rent subsidized, and some who pay $350 a month now will soon be paying $500. That will be hard for a lot of people.

jan, your garage door openers don't have a battery backup?

BB, you never did answer me about building soon.

Baylee l am not replacing anything. I had a dishwasher when l moved in here. They at that time told me l would have to buy my own refrigerator as the one they had was only 4 1/2 feet tall, with the freezer at eye level, and you had to bend way over to look into it and l don't bend well anymore, at least l don't want to very often.
The one l bought has the freezer on the bottom, and when l look into it l see everything right in front of me. Of course the freezer section on the bottom is difficult, but the basket does slide out. Their issue is only with the dishwasher but she noted and didn't care about my separate freezer and my counter top oven, also needed to prevent bending down to oven. She said l can see why you wanted the refrigerator as she opened it and looked straight in.
We went round and round, her problem being the company contacted her (second time now and she doesn't like that, said don;t go to yelp, when you have a problem, come to me) her boss contacts her and told her to let me have a reasonable accommodation after they had ordered me to "get rid of the dishwasher, it is not allowed" That is on the inspection report and that is why they only need a note for it.
My issue and l argued that l was told l could have the appliances as long as I bought them myself and NO NOTE was ever needed up to this point ...so why NOW? She said "well they didn't know about because she had been told we were NOT inspected yearly". I told her "whoever told her that had no memory as we ARE inspected every year."
She said " well different management companies" l said "then every new manager l have to bring my lease up there and ask do l need a Dr note for this?" we argued back and forth and finally she said OK "Just get a note for the dishwasher and we will put it in your file" l said "where the note is about the raised carpet which is a tripping issue?"
She said "May l come down there?" and l said "absolutely come right now". When she got here l was trying to snap the pocket back on the walker and it was hard and she did it for me. The bags of torn journals were sitting there and the appliances were all over the front room floor. MESS, but l wanted her to see that l had problems and the dishwasher was only adding to my problems so l left it all.
She later commented that "I have reports and paperwork to deal with and the dishwasher is way down on my priority list" which to me shows that we tenants are not as important to the managers as their "reports etc" to their bosses.

No Baylee l haven't removed that fatigue carpet, l only fall forward inches to the counter and mentioned it as an example of how l do trip over the slightest rise. That is why the linoleum (pretend wood flooring) rise in the hall between frontroom and kitchen, that l reported twice is important to me. I could trip on that and fall flat on my face. I have seen seniors who have done that and their faces and eyes are black and blue. A note in the file showing it is there but not fixing it. That is what gets me. Everything is to protect them. What about US?
The manager at one point said that "it is in the lease didn't you read the copy sent you?" l got mad at that as l do read the lease and she even admitted that they don't really have my current lease ..And l have to come up to office to fill out "reasonable accommodation Papers" after l get the note.
I went off on her again." What? More papers to fill out? And l was told when l moved in that there is no reasonable accommodation here" At that point she agreed she would even bring the papers to me and that she would fill them out 'just a few lines' and all l would have to do is sign them. So l calmed down and all is well.
There was really no need for all this if her assistant manager had just not lied and harrassed me about the dishwasher, saying she had "contacted the owner and dishwashers were NOT allowed and l had to get rid of it" . She made it into a big issue for me.

Tru, maybe Jan will send her replaced appliances out to you. That should solve your problem.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this here before, but there was a show on the Learning Channel last night that indicates we've officially run out of things to put on TV: "The Man with the 152 Pound Scrotum." (By the way, he's fine now. They took it off, and he's singing in the Vienna Boys Choir.)

Morning M6, BB, geez, Claudie and Tru

I was a bit under the weather yesterday and the day didn't start well. I was just about to walk out the door to go to the barn when I heard banging on the front door. It was the power people telling me they were going to turn the power off for a "brief time". It hit me about 15 seconds later that I can't open my garage with no power and it went dark :/

Had to ponder the situation for a bit, then realize I do have the suburban parked outside and I do need to start using it so off I went!!

M6 I realized that I HATE painting when I first moved into this house. I started painting the guest bedroom because it didn't need much drywall work from the foundation being repaired. I also didn't take into consideration the ceilng so when I hired painters I got them to do 2 out of the 3 bedrooms and the hall ceiling. I keep telling myself I might repaint the batahroom cabinets but so far the spirit hasn't moved me lol

BB didn't you have a pretty bad storm last night? My facebook friends were all talking about it being on the way.

Tru I'm sort of working my way through the house replacing appliances. The stove might be the next to go but I don't really dislike it like I did the washer/dryer and refrigerator. As I've said before I rarely use the dishwasher. I could but just don't.

Good morning! Well, the weather is turning, so I'm glad we had some nice times earlier.

Strange news last night - as usual, I spent ages yesterday discussing the idiot-mayor of TO and his latest stupidities. Then last night news came that he is in hospital with an undiagnosed tumor in his abdomen. Worst part of the news is that he apparently ignored pain for over 3 months -- and he has visited hospitals at least twice since then. No one wants him to be seriously ill, just to get trounced in the election next month!

We are having some super weather, finally. Meanwhile in Calgary there has been a lot of s***!

Tru, which appliances do you plan to replace? What will be different about the new ones you want? Have you tossed that kitchen mat yet?

Geez, for me a day without golf is a day without golf.

Good morning all...I am off to get a letter of accommodation for replacing the silly little appliances in my apartment with better for seniors appliances. Not required when l moved in, but this manager is making her mark. Letting it be known that she follows the lease...well for some things. Not the smoking ban, or the dumping of furniture at the bins, or the pets not on leashes or anything else one can think of to do that she cannot enforce.

Sillyness. I was told there were no reasonalble accommodations, but l could buy my own stuff. Now they want a permission slip. Written. to put in my file, where the ripped up flooring is that l reported ..no replacement just a note in the file.

Yes l am angered. it is so silly.

Good morning. Two days of golf in a row, if the weather allows. It's like a vacation!

Afternoon Tru, geez, Claudie, BB and M6

Another overcast but nice riding day this morning. Getting light rain off and on but somehow been fitting in rides in between :-)

Tru I try and be so much more careful than I used to be. After tripping over the log after the first knee surgery I've really tried hard not to do stupid things. I know it won't last because riding and taking care of horses in some folks minds fall in that category lol

Good afternoon!

Tru, if that kitchen mat is doing bad things, please get rid of it! There must be something else you can use as a replacement if you need the cushioning, but it's not worth the risk of tripping. And you can use the purchase as an excuse to go shopping! Definitely win-win.

We are back to coolness, after a hot few days last week. And finally the bugs are deciding to go away.

Janrey Y'all need to watch out for those broken bones. Being really active, and all.
But l need to watch it also, just in a different way. Any little rise in the sidewalk, a turned up rug etc will send me flying. So far no broken bones, but l keep thinking about it and all the healing time l would need. The little rug in front of my sink trips me frequently but l catch my fall by falling into the counter. So that one doesn't worry me. I am just aware that l do trip easily now. And no Geezer, it's not the "light fantastic" either.

Boy that first cup of coffee went down fast. Probably coz it was cool. I did up all the baking dishes l messed up yesterday before l drank the coffee.

I made and froze some more chicken croquettes for the get together Friday. I make sauce and the standing time gets to me, so l do it in increments ....my favorite word lately. Smiles. Also made cookies and took them to the group that gathers nightly just about.
One lady brought dip and chips and her tea was knocked over into my walkers pocket. I have to wash it out and let it dry out today. Walkers are not good TV trays. Poor Bella was doused with the tea as well. She'd just been bathed recently too and she is not happy being bathed by her owner.

Fall is on the way. Real cool this morning and getting cooler as the week progresses. Almost time to get the 'longs' (as opposed to shorts) out of storage.

My son just reported on his camping trip he took in Northern CA where l thot were lots of fires and asked if the smoke bothered his trip. He said it did not and this trip was in the top 10 of his favorite camping trips. Glad you all enjoyed.

Good afternoon!

Yes, Tru, we went to the auto museum, and even got a ride in the classic truck! The museum was fun, and overall (except for some idiots in the park where we camped) we had a great time. I had no idea there was so much history around there, and the scenery was impressive too. The fireworks were great, but the pup really hated them -- too noisy and bright for him. And I think he's had enough driving to last him a few more days.

Oh - and geez's new kitchen really is as nice as the photos we saw, and it really is kept with all of the counters perfectly clear. And his step-daughter's house that was for sale is lovely from the outside. We'd love to dismantle it and take it home!

Morning Geez, Tru, M6, BB and Claudie

How odd. I did a post yesterday but it's not showing up :-(

OH well. I did get rain just like Claudie. Had the day off from the barn yesterday but didn't really do anything constructive. Maybe that's how days off are supposed to be lol

The woman that she and her friends kept both of my horses going through both of my surgeries is finally able to ride again after breaking her collar bone and having surgery. It was nine weeks for her. Only 6 for me but of course I did both knees so I was out for a much longer period of time. Hope the weather cooperates and it's Bandi she will ride at first. I rode Monty this morning but will get back on him again this afternoon since all we will do is trail ride. He's young and tough. Should be able to handle being ridden twice a day.
