  5. Picked her up this afternoon. She was a bit stressed on the car ride home. Took a 2 hour nap on the porch. Then we got out in the grass to play. Then dinner. Breeder said a full cup. That is what our full grown Golden's got. So I was sceptical. I put down 3/4 cup and she ate it right down. I'll let you know how 2:00 am potty is.

  6. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was making lunch and heard a rap at the door. I went to the door as the UPS guy was walking down the driveway. I picked up the large heavy box and was surprised by the weight. I was expecting a box of medical supplies today, pads, wipes, lotions, and drugs. The hospice nurse said they should be delivered today. I set the box down and went back to making lunch. We had our lunch and I did a load of laundry, sheets, gowns,towels, etc. I finally sat down and was checking the forum. Finally I decided to open the box and see what all supplies I got. That’s when I s

  10. You all know that WoScrapr passed almost a year ago. Our boy (he's 24) texts me tonight out of the blue & says do you have dreams about Mom? I reply funny you should ask. Last night she touched my arm when I was sleeping. She startled me & I woke up. I think if I had not woke up we might have hugged. So young Scrapr says she came to me last night & hugged me & sang to me. I think young Scrapr was a bit freaked out about it. But he said the hug was really good Both on the same night. We are checking with other good friends to see if she came to them. I had only 1 othe

  13. Wo46 and I had a good sidecar race but could only get 2nd place. We did shave 9 seconds off of last years fastest lap time. Our son finished 2nd in his race with a drag race to the finish and lost by .046 of a second. But out of all the losers we are the best losers.

  14. Found this project on the interweb and decided to make it. HoSmudge helped me a bit with the cutting; he held the board while I used the chop saw. He also neatened up the pieces when he noticed the chop saw was set at 1° rather than at 0°. Other than that, it was all smudge. P.S. Glued wood pieces are slippery and tricky to screw down!

  16. Einstein was almost released from his two preoperative procedures. He was awake. He drank the ginger ale. They were decreasing the pressure on the band holding his artery closed. Then he had an allergic reaction to something. Then it started spurting blood in a rather dramatic quantity through the hole in his wrist. Now we ae in the wait mode again. Overall he is pretty durn healthy for a heart patient and all should go well with next week's surgery.

  20. I have tried for a few years to make my own fat bike trail for winter at camp. I finally got to ride a winter trail! It was too soft using snowshoes, so I walked it with boots. I still pulled the drag sled, bit I had to really get some better psi for compression. The boots without snowshoes worked, but it was quite bumpy. Not only was it bumpy, but I don't do well on narrow trails. I am a wiggly rider. Needless to say, I spent a great deal of time like this... It was still great to finally ride the trail.

  21. I'm in my fifth week at my new job. I am really enjoying having a job/workplace I don't hate, and I've rediscovered the joy of sleeping through the night. Stress levels are way down (...unless I watch the news). And my commute is less than 15 minutes each way! But I'm still feeling out the web policy here at work, so I haven't been around here much... In any case i have a lot to be thankful for, including all of you. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and can spend it with family and good friends. Or with good beer and football.

  22. I am a mod here. There is no secret of that. I appreciate what SW has here for us and he makes being a mod here fairly easy. Now for my confessions: - When I started I really didn't know what to do but following SW's lead made it clear. - No one has ever, EVER tried to abuse me (that I know of) - I have never banned anyone - I have never even given anyone a warning point. - I have moved threads or hidden threads where SW has come by later and awarded points - I have a greater level of tolerance of both political and religious threads than SW. That has caus

  23. mr. and I celebrated 28 years together this past Saturday. But, I almost took out a lease on an apartment last week Monday, I was so done with being called mentally ill in various ways. But, that argument faded and then passed. It’s complicated. We’re going forward with kitchen remodel plans. Living year 29 together.

  24. Mom's health has been going down hill for a while now. She's been feeling better since she started dialysis but she is having a hard time getting in and out of her chair so on a last minute decision I bought her a new recliner. I was driving past the little mom and pop furniture store in town and bought her a new power lift recliner. Wo46 and I delivered it to her this afternoon and she started tearing up.

  26. Dermatologist #2 called. The dark shadow between my eye and bridge of my nose is squamous cell carcinoma. Mohs surgery is scheduled for 8/19. Here’s hoping we get it all. I think he recommended that I should seek shelter from the sun in an Irish pub. Doctor’s orders and all that.

  27. To tell me he did his Good Turn for the day. He was at the gas station and a guy walked up with a gas can. Asked Wade if he would fill it up. Told him we was out of gas and his family was stuck in the car. Wade asked him where he lived and he said South Dallas, to which Wade replied "That is not enough gas, go get your car started and bring it here, and I will fill it up" Guy came back a bit later with his wife, two kids and grandfather in the car and Wade filled their tank for them. They shook hands and went their separate ways, and I hope each of them truly appreciate the enor

  29. I am far from wealthy, but we are doing OK. If anyone here needs a helping hand, send me a PM with a local grocery store name, your address, and I'll be happy to help you out. My wife and I want to start doing this while people are struggling. I'd prefer to help people I know, but we'll be helping just about anyone we can.

  30. On Monday. I’ve been here for three years and like it here and the people are nice. The reason I’m quitting is that the CFO is being a pain in the ass. We met in late January and he said that the CEO wants to upgrade the talent in my position. It was up to me to come up with a plan to “upgrade the talent” Over the weekend. I found an online graduate certificate in risk management through Boston University. I used that to buy time to find another job. Last Wednesday I had a phone interview and in person on Friday. They offered the job Friday afternoon. I start the 23rd. Everyone but the CFO is

  32. ....or more accurately Bear Creek Road. A long, long, long, long time ago, when I was a kid, for two weeks each summer, my parents would ship my sister and I off to my grandparents’ house, on Bear Creek Road. This was the house my grandmother grew up in, and when my grandfather retired, they moved back there, from Brooklyn. Being the middle of nowhere, it was the perfect place for kids to....just be kids. (It’s only recently that I’ve realized that I probably also remember it fondly because it was the only time I was out from under my mother’s thumb....🤨) So yesterday, I rode from ca

  39. I got new hearing aids today. Wow, has technology changed. They are blue tooth. I can control them from my phone. When my phone rings, it is deep inside my ear. I had a great conversation with my boss when she was in her loud SUV on the throughway. All I could hear was her voice after I tapped noisy environment. It was so marvelous I forgot that I was annoyed with her. This set of hearing aids are life changing for me-- a person with a severe hearing loss. I still lip read but I found in one day, I actually heard more of conversations. Works with t-coil. Also phone can act

  42. The $50 Breakfast was a great success. It was really cool to get 12 guys together, many who had never met, for the purpose of giving an unexpected gift to someone else who was working hard right before Christmas. As we left Poor Richard’s Cafe we gave an envelope to our server with the cash collectively donated by each guy. One of the last guys to walk out said he saw her open it and burst into tears. God knows what that gift means to her and her family, and that’s what matters the most.

  43. Took Brutus out for a spin today. It was a really nice day. I was so relaxed and happy with myself and my life. While I wasn't trying to set any speed records, but I actually flew down the hill and felt like I was riding very very fast. I felt like a kid. Tossing the bike in the turns was super fun. Brutus felt like a feather. Up hill felt easy too. My husband re-built some berms and I really love one of them the most. I can't believe the work he does with only hand tools. The professional trail builders we often hire, want him to work for them full time. Kinda cool, but they can't
