  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.

Yum, burritos. Good, and quick to make. DD2 loved just a bean burrito, with cheese. I think that was it. I think someone did steal the sun. It was here yesterday, and now, poof!! It's gone.

Hopefully he will just drop the case against MaryAgnes, Rita. Maybe he will kick out the neighbor that started all this mess. I hate having to call people and tell them how to do their job! Just get it right the first time. Mike Holmes would love me. That's why I quit going to Walmart pharmacy, every time, I wanted to jump over the counter and wring the clerk's neck. Where do these idiots come from?

Oh look, Carol Ann has THREE legs! Good for you! I bet you look fancy dancing down the street.

Weather station, Cindy? It tracks the wind speed? I like that, we need one of them there gadgets. I hope your power stays on and your trees vertical.

I went to the commissary today, it was  nice because there weren't many people there. But, the credit card machine had a strange display on it, and she had to call the supervisor. I think this woman takes lesson from MaryAgnes' landlord. She looked at my cashier, and said, 'What did you do to it, and why didn't you call me when this first happened?' Seriously? Nothing, and she did! I said, 'Is she always like this?' My cashier just rolled her eyes. Problems at the register two times in a row. What will happen next time? Now my hips hurt, my left SI joint hurts, and my feet hurt. I almost put rum in my diet pepsi at 11AM. I will have to do something fun this afternoon. And have a yummy lunch. Any ideas? Maybe one of Thel's burritos. I have fresh tomatoes.

Mary Agnes:  Ah... Now I understand your LL's persistence.  Good luck!

Cindy:  I'm so sorry that I sounded so smug about my knee successes.  I was unaware of your poor results, and I can certainly understand your opinion about the surgery in general.  Thanks to my primary physician and his persistence on my behalf, I had a very excellent knee surgeon, who could repair a previous surgeon's error. (Hence the three knee replacements.)  I give him full credit for all the success I've had with my knees.  Well, that and my dedication to the rehab therapy.

Raining with wind this morning in NorCal.  I have a meeting at 5:00 tonight on the guild's Quilt Show, but I'm a little unenthusiastic about going out in the storm.  We'll see.

Good morning all....MaryAgnes that 'Stormy Weather' is perfect for us on the left coast....crazy wind again today!

Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC 4 hours ago

Good Morning from a drizzly NYC. I slept like a rock last night; my court appearance was truly exhausting and to think I used to do it five days a week.

My friend Bobette had two knee replacements at once and she's happy as a pig in you know what. Real sorry about your experience, Cindy. Sometimes you can't just can't win.

Ain't no sun up in the sky. Stormy weather. This is for you, Thel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJvYo5pZEfE

I don't think my landlord cares how much he spends. If he gets me out he'll renovate the apartment and charge the next tenant three times what I'm paying. God bless rent stabilization.

I guess I have to be VERY thankful that I've not had to have any parts replace except a new ankle; which is pretty different cause it's a lot of plates fussed together and little mobility in the ankle. 

About time to be in bed,  but again my eyes won't close. 

Nite nite everyone.

Rita, you don't want my opinion on knee replacements. I have had three surgeries on same knee. First failed completely. Second, no go. Third, I am crippled for life. In more pain now than prior to the replacement. Yes I have other medical issues but they figure the failed knee causes the others to be worse. If I had it to do over I would run the other way fast as possible. Been told other knee needs it as well. NOPE, NO WAY, NO HOW!!!!! I will live with it.

Windy here. Sustained in the 40 mph range with gusts up to almost 60mph. We have a weather station on our back deck that tracks it. Wind supposed to die down tomorrow around 3 pm. Everything is secured as much as we could. Lights have blinked a few times, but so far we still have power.

OKAY, Rita, anytime you want to talk about knee replacement, please know that I have had THREE, and I can dance down the street. I will bet that I am the in-house expert here.

I am bookmarking for the night.  We are expecting the next Pacific storm series (3 waves) to hit NorCal tomorrow.  No ice storms (sorry for you all), but it will rain buckets, blow down trees and snow at the mountain house for the rest of the week.

Mary Agnes, you are a force to be reckoned with!  I expect your LL will give up before the case comes to a JURY (wow!) trial next summer.  How much does he want to spend on this?  Hee Hee!

Good Night All.

Evening Rita.  Been wondering what you've been up to.  Sounds like you've been pretty busy fighting the fight.  What a day !!!  I hope you won. 

Stay safe with the ice, glad you're tucked in.   I hope you get to play golf too. 

It's been another relaxing evening here.  Altho it seems like my furnace is acting up again.  Sometimes it's working, sometimes it making a funny noise.  Looks like I'll be calling the landlord tomorrow.

Hi everyone, just popping in to bookmark, I have been fighting with my computer most of the day, trying to update some drivers, I am having to use windows right now and I hate it, can't wait to get back to linex, so much fewer problems. then I had to straighten out insurance company, that said I had moved out of coverage area,and would be losing my medical insurance Been in the same spot for 60 years, but someones key input knows better. Dorks, then I had to take on directv, 5 months out of seven the billing has been wrong, charging for channels not ordered. I was ready to reach in that phone, and oh, well I guess I won, all is straight.

Sorry there is more delay Mary Agnes, but I hope it is causing angst to your LL. we know you are mellow, 

Ice storm hitting here tonight, but we are tucked in.

I am so hoping my ankle tendon will let me play golf this year. I can't remember if I told you that DH has decided to go ahead with the knee replacement, he has needed for a long time. they said he would know when it was time. Now just need all the approvals. I will be looking for helpful hints from any of you with experience with this.

Been coloring, playing with the herd, made burritos for dinner.  That's been my day.

Looks like there's come black ice out there cause all the cars are in real slow motion.  It never did dry up from the rain/ice storm and now it's freezing up again. 

Can anyone tell me?    Is there still a sun in the sky?  Did you steal it?
