Good morning.

Yes, I was hoping I could figure out some way to meet up with you, too. Mary Agnes. Also maybe visit Beth's shop, ( I think she's in PA ). We are taking my car but the itinerary is more up to sis and BIL at this point.

Cooler here this  AM. It rained overnight but we didn't get as much as they were threatening last week. I have hundreds of volunteer sunflowers growing under the bird feeders. It will be easier to pull thiose while the ground is wet at least.

DS#2 and DIL will be here this weekend for a visit. DS#1 has a to do list for his brother. There are a few things that need to be done around here that takes two strong guys to get the job done.

Sophie has her blood work this AM so we will be on our way soon. She seems to be doing OK so I hope things have straightened out. 

I hope you get to make that trip Froggie. You could stop at Paducal along your way, too. Have the DGS's take care of Mr. Bullfrog, grab Myra and make a trip of it. Naty weather down your way. Hope you're OK.

Mary Alice, that's a bummer. Hope the medical stuff gets done without discomfort. Darn those hips. You deserve a few days of sewing time.

I don't know why I enjoy these 6 1/2" blocks so much but I'm having fun with the blockheads. Their really cute.

Good Early Morning, Gifties. I never got back after posting the camel with a coke yesterday. And today is shaping up to be a busy one too so I'll check in before it starts.

I went to gym class yesterday in the rain and only four of us showed up, but I knew if I missed two days in a row, I'd find an excuse not to continue with the program so I went and felt much better afterwards.

Carol Ann, I'm so sorry to hear about Mitzi. It's amazing how cats know they're loved and live long lives to return that love to their humans. Only now beginning to appreciate cats, especially since my allergy to them seems to be decreasing.

So, go to Shelbeyville, KY, Froggie!!!  Just do it and don't say NO!!! I bet DGSs would love to go with you. And I bet DSIL would take care of her brother for a few days.  

When you plan to come east, Barbara, let me know your plans and we'll see if we can meet face to face. Some day, my hope is, I'll get to meet all of you face to face. It's my new goal in life.

I wonder if Lou Ann will be back before next November. I bet she'd go on the MD/Northern VA shop hop with me. Maybe Froggie's DD1 would be interested. My sister lives in Annapolis and my nieces in Fredericksberg.

I missed far too much yesterday to comment on everything. Right now I've got to take His Royal Highness for a walk and then we have to move my friend's car. and then, and then.

Checking in,  keeping up. 

Darn on the termites Froggie.  That sinks. 

I offered Joe a home made spaghetti dinner and he actually declined.  Oh well.  The left overs will go into the freezer.

Thanks, Mary. Mean Joe Green. I knew someone would have it on the tip of their tongue. Sometimes I don't want to just google it, just ask and see who knows.

That sounds like fun, Barbara. I wish I could go on an ancestry hunt. To Shelbyville,KY. It would be easy, the great grampa I want to learn about was a big deal in Shelbyville. And I want to know where the little boy and his sister came from that great grampa and great grandma adopted. And why Daddy looks so much like great grampa. Huh? How? I always heard the parents were killed in the civil war. OK that's enough of that rambling for now.

You crack me up, Rita. You crack me up, Rita.

Yes, I think that rain came from me. We are supposed to have rain for several more days, and storms on Friday.

You don't have to change your avatar unless you want to, Carol Ann.

IT was drugged, Sheila. They were going to force it into prostitution by drugging it and whatever else they do to fabric. That's just mean.

Wow, Mary Alice. Poor hips. I hope it works out for you, and you don't have a lot of hip pain during your pap. I hate them, nobody likes them I would bet.

What a cute boy, Thel. He looks very happy to have Paisley Marie.

Well, we have termites. In the ceiling by the fireplace leak. They are coming Saturday to treat for them. Then, hopefully we can get that leak taken care of, and the ceiling can get fixed. I cleaned a lot today, and finally got into the quilting room for a bit. We had a big pot of chicken and dumplings, it was so good.

Carol Ann, don't change the avatar. That's my Lucy you see in my avatar. She's been gone since 2014.

Such a cute picture Thel. Paisley will be very happy there.

Mary Alice,my Dr said, since I am  70+ year old monogamous great grandma, I could skip the pap test, they are mostly looking for hpv, which is precursor to cervical cancer.I was happy to give that one up.

There seems to be a long delay between hitting comment and when it actually happens, so not your fault Anne, plus NING sometimes just does it for fun.

Happy little Parsley, and human.

Paisley Marie is in her new home with her new sibling human.  Happy faces. 

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 13 hours ago

Darn Mary Alice,  you sure have had your fill of issues with heat, then AC & water.   I hope you get that all fixed soon.  

Good you got some of your medical stuff done.  Bummer that it didn't really go as planned. 

I have a wonderful home made pasta sauce simmering, spaghetti cooked and almost ready to eat my dinner. 

The drizzle continues with a chill in the air.  Tomorrow should be better.

Carol Ann, your new bathrooms sounds beautiful.  I would love a walk in shower!

Sorry for your loss of Mitzie, Carol Ann.  So hard to lose a beloved pet.  Cindy, I loved the poem.

Sheila, it would have been a blast if I'd been there.  Maybe would have made her design something new.

Well I found the part of the AC that blew off yesterday.  We got it back on, but for now I've turned off the AC switch on roof, and turned off water until my brother can be here to deal with it.  We are in for another nasty windy dusty storm on Thursday with worst gusts on Friday.  Much colder on the weekend.  I may just call it quits on everything and do some sewing. 

I went to my physical, and goodness I have to go back for a pap.  My metal hips were hurting and not cooperating in that position.  So I've been prescribed muscle relaxants to get, plus told to take some ibuprofen on top of that, and get someone to drive me into another appointment for this portion.  Darn it! Never a dull moment.  On the bright side, everything else came out great on my testing results.  Will wait on mammogram, since I'm due for the 6 month mammogram from surgeon to see if that spot they're watching has grown or what. So I got paper work to get everything done at once instead of going to one place for the right side and another for the left side.
