    Good Morning everyone,  It is 30* and overcast.  We had rain overnight so everything has a shiny coating of ice on it.  My oldest cat wanted out so I let him out and he slipped and fell down the stairs.  I have never seen a cat slip on ice before nut he recovered quickly.  I didn’t get back on the computer yesterday.  There was something going on with it so I set norton to clean up the files and that took most of the day.  Everything is fine this morning except I can’t open my email account.  I click on it and all I get is a white screen and it times out.  Not sure what to do next.  I didn’t do a lot yesterday but was busy all day doing it.  I think I filled my shop vac with cat hair.  After all the hair I cleaned up I should have several cats that are bald. No such luck!  Guess I will keep on with what I started yesterday.  

    Carol, I know what you mean about doing things when you are alone.  I used to get busy when Tim was around and hope he would join in but over time I learned it doesn’t work.  Now my method if he does nothing neither do I.  I’m afraid that is going to have to change.  

    Mary, it is a shame you were so close you could see my green car and not say HI.  Sounds like you had a nice drive on such a nice day.  I am going to be making a trip up your way the end of next month for a family get together.  It will be a long trip without my dog along.  I can’t remember the last time I went that way, been a couple years.  

    Marilyn, my it isn’t like you to not have a plan for the day.  I’m sure you and hubby will find something interesting and have a good time doing it>  enjoy!

    Sandy, sorry to hear about your car.  I hope she will take care of the damage.  In the daytime I watch a lot of the court show and every day they have some fool who tries to get out of paying for damage they have done to someone else.  Be sure she pays you if you repair the car or not it si your money!  Have a good day at work.

    Well, I should get moving and see what I get done.  You all have a good time.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is 26 and sunny here this morning.  Will be a nice day warming up to 40 this afternoon.  The next week will be getting warmer every day up into the 60′s.  I need to get some more coffee and come back when my fingers get to working.  So far I am using the backspace more than the letters.  Later, Lair

    I can’t find my butterflies today.  I did find something else this morning.  About 5 years ago I bought a black amaryllis.  the following year it didn’t bloom and assumed it had not made it through the summer.  I’ve gone all this time and this morning I went into the GH and what did I fine but this.  It’s back!

    I had 2 four foot ones but when we set our clocks ahead I turned them off.  With the extra hour of day light I don’t need them.  Lair   lol

    Good Morning everyone,  It is sunny and 27* this morning and no wind.  Could be a great day but don’t think I will be seeing any of it from out there.  It is too comfortable in here and there will be better days ahead. Yesterday went by fast but I didn’t do anything to speak of.  I did go in the GH and prune back some plants.  There are a couple I want to take cuttings from so I guess I will do that today.  I didn’t have any dirt yesterday but last night I remembered I have another pail of dirt that is playing plant stand so I’m good to go on doing that.  Tim is off to work at his regular job.  He says his back still hurts but he acts normal when he doesn’t know I am watching.  He has not done one thing for 6 days so for the next 6 days I am going to play sick and do the same thing.  I will pick up my dirty dishes and a few other things because that drives me crazy setting around.  Snow, yes please keep your cold, I’ve had enough already but feel free to send the warmer stuff.  Take it easy at work. Oh, I have dentures but still have four of my own teeth they use for anchors, one of those broke off in Nov.  

    Leroy, glad you are feeling better.  Hope you get your glasses adjusted, that can really bother me.  One time I got new glasses and I thought they were fine until I was doing some work and I noticed everything was just off level and slopped to the right.  Turned out the bifocal was tilted wrong.

    Carol, glad you had fun at your auction.  We used to have those to raise money for our neighborhood when I lived in Denver.  They were a lot of fun when everyone got together.  We also would get together when a new business would open near us, that was fun, especially if it was a bar.  When are you getting your car fixed?  

    Marilyn, sorry you didn’t get your cast thing off yesterday.  Three weeks sounds like a long time but just remember back at when we were saying the first of March, seems like it was yesterday but it has been 27 days.  

    Mary, getting a new car?  Lucky you!  I am envious.  I really like my car but  new one would be better and then I would have the choice of a color.  I have always wanted a burgundy color car and in my 70 years I have never had one, they always come in a green for some reason.  

    Sandy, sounds ambitious to build a new roof on top of the old one.  I have a lot of tools I should get rid of that I’m sure you could use.  I’m sure if I got rid of them I would need them the next day.  that’s how it always goes.  Have a good weekend at work.  

    Jan, I hope you got out of your haze.  You will find they come along often and as I get older they seem to last longer and longer. Alma, I am guessing you are in Alabama or getting ready to go.  Have a good trip.  

    Well, everyone have a good day.  Lair

    Well, Gayle, I don’t know all that much about them.  Since my stroke I have problems coming up with a lot of  names.  I do know the ones I have are called surprise <i>lilies, Naked ladies, and then there is real name for them which I can’t remember.  I’m sure if you cross the country there are a lot more you would come across.  Maybe someone else with a better memory would be more help.  Lair</i>

    Good Morning everyone, it is 28* and sunny here this morning but we have a strong wind that is going to blow all day.  Our cooler temps will last until Sunday and next week we should hit near 60* again.  Just same old stuff for me today so I am boring.  I didn’t get on here much yesterday and this morning I had over 70 things in my spam folder.  

    Leroy, I hope this crud is behind you and you get back to normal.  

    Carol, have fun reading to the students.  I could never do that because I am not a good reader.  I think my tongue is too long.

    Marilyn, where are you this morning?  Oh, I think you said the doctor.  Hope you got good news. 

    Snow, I am exhausted after I read your posts.  I don’t know how you do it.  

    Sandy, a new roof?  Sounds like you have help all around you for demolition.  Good luck with all your project this summer.  I wish I had your ambition.  

    I wish I had a better memory because I can’t remember what else I read.  I guess my brain took a break and didn’t tell my hands so I just keep typing.  Well, I;m off to see what today brings.  You all have a good one.  Lair

    That was a post yesterday on Mid-west of the vine up by the ceiling.  Today is the same plant 10 months ago, very different.  Lair

    Yesterday I was trying to untangle my Mandevilla from all the pots it has vined in and out of over the winter in the Green house.  I remembered it last year.

    Good Morning,  It is overcast here and 32*.  We had rain and ice last night but nothing coming down right now.  Everything has a coating of ice but will disappear soon.  Where is Marilyn this morning?  I don’t remember what she said she was doing today, maybe I should go back and read if she has a Dr. appointment.  Yesterday I did my watering then did some vacuuming.  Don’t know what happened but I woke up on the bathroom floor beside the vac.  Must have blacked out so I took the rest of the day easy. I feel fine this morning so I guess I will get cleaned up and get back to the chores.  I woke up to a rash around my neck this morning.  I have been having this ever since I had a tooth pulled and had to take antibiotics.  It has moved all over my body starting with my feet and worked it’s way up.  I’ve tried everything but gold bond powder works the best at first.  Guess I will have to call the doctor.  

    Leroy, how are you feeling?  I hope you are are on the mend.  

    Mary, glad your wrist is doing well.  

    Carol, have a good day with all your travels.

    Sandy, are you getting rested up yet?  I hope you are feeling better.  

    Snow, are you getting caught up with all you have to do?  I hope you are feeling better and glad the peppers are doing well.

    Marilyn, I hope you get your cast off soon so you can be back to normal.  

    Alma, what did you have done to your arm?  I must have missed that post but hope it is better.

    Everyone else have a good day.  Lair

    There are so many rules that I am sure no one know anything for sure.  I do know that assets are defined by the SS different that we think of them.  I know when I went on disability I could keep my car, house and everything else.  The thing they were interested in was cash on hand and property I owned or rented.  Turned out I had no cash on hand and hardly owned more than much more than my house.  If I were to go threw it again I would get some legal aid from the state.  I went through the hospital legal offices, they did all the legal work and got all the things going.  They were very helpful because they didn’t think they would get any money if I didn’t get SS disability.  Good luck with your efforts.  Lair

    I just remembered that I have to do this.  Can anyone see what it is?

    What you see wrapped around that chain is my Mandevilla.  The plant sets on the floor and has climbed from the floor up through my hanging baskets up to the ceiling 8 feet high.  What a mess, I am just tempted to cut it off but I did that last year and it took until fall for it to start growing again so I will have to take some time to untangle the many vines in several plants on either side and above it.  Tomorrow will be the passion plant, that has done the same thing.

    Good Morning everyone,  It is sunny and 22* here this morning.  With the wind last night I had to turn the heat back on in the GH.  We are to be cooler until Sunday with highs in the low 30′s then back up to the 50′s.  I got a few things done around the house but too boring to mention.  I got a birdhouse painted so I will have to get out to the shop and get another one to paint.  Tim is feeling a lot better today but I don’t know what he has planned for the day. I don’t have a plan for my day so I guess I will need to get another cup and get it together.  Oh, we did get 5″ of snow and we are to get a half inch of rain tonight if they are right.  I don’t know any more. I’ll have to come back when my head clears.  Hav a good day.  Lair
