    Yep, it looks like the one I have but mine is called a Pencil cactus where I got it.  So many years ago and a lot of memory ago so I’m not all that sure.  Mine is about 5 foot tall and has never bloomed.  I water it about once every 2 months or whenever it starts dropping branches.  They don’t like transplanting much.  Give it a while to get used to your home.  Lair

    Good Morning, I hope this works because I have already had to sign in twice.  Anyway, it is a sunny 16* here this morning with no sign of a wind.  Didn’t do much yesterday but feel better today and should do better today.  I’m not sure but I think there will be more than just Tim and I for Thursday.  The guys that are working don’t have family close and from what I hear they have no dinner planned.  Tim has told a couple guys they can come over and eat after they get off.  One guy did RSVP that he would be here and asked what he could bring.  The others are 25 and under and I don’t think calling would occur to them but they may be here.  I got the turkey out this morning to thaw.  I made 3 loaves of onion/sage bread yesterday.  It turned out real good.  The older I get the better my bread turns out.  I’m making cranberry salad today so I may just make another 3 loaves of bread since I have room in the freezer now.  Onion/sage is good in stuffing but not so much as toast.  

    Sandy, anyone you are getting gifts for should know all you have gone through this past year.  Appearing cheap should be the last thing on your mind.  Giving them anything is a sign you love them and want to show it, they won’t think it is cheap.  If they do then they are not such good friends.  You take care of yourself and get some rest.  

    Snow, I am amazed with your traveling plant and chef show.  Is there anything you can’t do?  I am also expecting to hear how while things are in the oven you will do a good fall house cleaning for your DS.  After all you have a couple hours with nothing to do. lol  I hope you have a great trip.

    Carol, I hope Ray gets good news from the doctor.  Are you planning for a large group for Thursday?  If you said I must have missed it.  

    Mary, I hope you have a good week at work.  No more hassles than need be. I was thinking of your kitties yesterday.  My little guy started trying to meow yesterday.  He makes a little sound but it scares him and he runs.  This morning he is here by my chair hoping I will pick him up and put him on the desk in the sun with the other cats.  He can’t jump that high yet.  

    Leroy, I hope all is well with you.  I haven’t seen you on the board for a couple days.  

    Well, I need to run and see if my sister is going home today.  I talked to her yesterday and she sounded a little better.  She isn’t dreading the ride home but I warned her how painful it will be.  2 hours juggling in a car will be a long time.  Well, I need to run.  You all have a good dya.  Lair

    Good Morning Jan and all to follow,  I woke up almost in a sweat, it is 53* out there and raining.  The forecast for today was only to be in the mid 40′s.  I can’t see any white around here from my window, if there is any it isn’t much.  Don’t know what I’ll do today but am sure it won’t be much.  With this gloomy weather I miss my Smokey so much.  Yesterday I couldn’t stand it so I went over and helped Andy work on his board.  Again I forgot my camera so still no pictures to share, next time I’ll fix that.  Hey, I just came up with an idea, with it so gloomy maybe I’ll go down and clean up my work space in the basement.  Once that is clean I won’t have any excuse not to work on making some bird houses when I want.  Well, not much else to say so I’ll go and check back later.  See if my sister has posted anything.  I talked to her yesterday and she sounded much better.  Hope she continues to improve.  You all have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning Carol, I didn’t see this post before I posted on the other one.  It is 30 here and raining.  A thin coat of ice on everything.  I hope Tim got to work OK at 5:30 this morning.  His phone is here on the charger for whatever good that does.  I didn’t do much yesterday either.  I did get my sheets done and changed into the winter sheets.  That was a fun game for 3 cats.  Sheets on the bed was a lot of fun for them.  The part of where one is under and the 2 others pile on top, they love that.  The best one was where I smooth out the sheets and they catch my fingers.  Putting on pillow cases took a long time with 3 cats hanging from the bottom, hard to pull up.  When the bed was finally made they all took a nap on it, just wore out.  Not sure what I’ll do today, first thing is turn on all the lights.  It is so dark I can’t see much of anything.  Carol, you have a lot more snow than we do.  Most of our snow has frozen dried away.  The rain today and tomorrow should get rid of what’s left.  Well, I should get moving.  Maybe give my sister a call.  Have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is a gloomy 30* here with heavy fog and a mist in the air.  The steps are covered in a thin coating of ice so I would guess the roads are the same way.  It is so foggy I can’t see the highway so I don’t know.  Didn’t do much yesterday because I didn’t feel the best.  Andy wanted me to work on his project but I wasn’t up to it.  I think I will have another cup and plan today.  You all have a good one.  Lair

    I bake my potatoes first in a covered pan.  When they are done I cover them with bourbon.  Let it rest for a half hour, drain the bourbon off and drink it.  Let someone else finish the potatoes.  Lair

    Charlene, don’t put anything in your mouth unless the DR. or nurse gives it to you.  You have a whole new system that your working with.  Too soon to any experimenting.  I realize how hungry you must be having not eaten since Monday but it will happen soon.  As far a low Blood pressure , we both know it is a gift from Mother.  It iwll go up when your body decides to make it go up.  I’ll call you later.  Lair

    Good Morning again.  I was on earlier to see if Charlene or Larry had posted but nothing yet.  I did talk to her yesterday and she said she would call me when she felt better.  I doubt if she will because it is long distance and I don’t think you can do it from a hospital phone.  

    Anyway, it is 6* and sunny here but with a wind out of the south that feels oh so cold.  We are on a warming trend until we get to a high of 40 tomorrow with freezing rain over night.  Tim is off to work and I am bound and determined to get something done today. First thing is to wash sheets and then start cleaning. I have sat around all too long thinking and getting nothing done.  I have given the house cleaning fairy chance after chance and nothing!  I am about to start looking for a replacement for her. (or him)  Well, I need to get moving while the iron is hot and my motivation is high.  I’ll be back later when I start to run down.  Have a good day, Later,  Lair

    Good Morning Carol,  It is 12* and sunny here this morning.  Yesterday I got nothing done around here.  I couldn’t keep my mind on what ever I tried to do.  Thankfully nobody came in and did it during the night so everything is still waiting for me today.  Wish I had something interesting to ad this morning but I don’t.  If something comes up I’ll be back.  Have a good day,  Lair

    Good Morning everyone,  I just wanted to add a little something about Charlene’s surgery.  They had plans to do it laparoscopically(thanks fr spell check) when they talked to her earlier.  When I had my abdominal surgery they also had a knick problem.  My doctor explained it by saying the cameras look forward and sometimes when they back up things happen.  I guess it is normal, if there is a normal with something this serious.  

    Have a good day.  Lair
