    Good morning. A nice one here, but may get our first frost tonight.

    No real time to visit as I am going with my sister to pick up Wesley for a visit. He told his mom he was getting a little tired of her and dad and he needed to call papaw and grammy to come get him for a few days. LOL He’s bringing his mickey mouse costume and will be looking for treats later. We’ll be on the road 4+ hrs., so it’s going to be a long, long day.

    Have a great Halloween! Kathy

    PS:Marcia…no, I just never found the energy.

    Good morning. I really intended to go over and give my sister a little surprise by giving her a boost on house cleaning, but so far….I haven’t cajoled me out of this chair. I did sleep in, so I should NOT have an excuse. Hehehe Oh well, at least I have a load of clothes in the dryer.

    Since I’m getting this late start, I’d best get up and do something….even if it’s wrong, as my dad would say. LOL

    Have a great day! Kathy

    PS: Dave, I enjoyed your song!

    Good morning. Still cool. Only going to be in the 70s today. Just our luck it’s going back to 80s tomorrow and back cool for Halloween. Neighbor and I planned to build a fire in the pit and enjoy the kiddos as they come by for treats. It may be too chilly for my old bones.

    Dumb vest tried to shock me again last night. Geeze, all I did was bend over. Don’t know how that could have made a strange “noise”, but guess it did. I fear my reaction if Dr. G says I won’t get this thing off at the end of Nov.!

    Brenda, our Wally is open 24/7. We are a small place and I was surprised there were so many people shopping in the middle of the night. But it was still nice and quiet and peaceful shopping.

    Marcia, my grandparents had a service station across from the train depot, so we always had a good seat for the goings on. Even today, we are a place where one train pulls on an off track and waits for another to pass. Back then, there was a third track that had a long row of box car apartments. My friend’s dad worked for the RR and they lived in one of them. I wish I could remember more of what they were like inside, but I just remember always thinking how dark it was in their “house”. We were constantly putting pennies and such on the tracks for the trains to squish. Don’t forget I’m OLD. I remember LOTS of stuff! Hehehe

    Sherry, glad your mom is settling in and likes the new place.

    Stewart, around here, we say it’s like a cow p’ing on a flat rock(hope I haven’t offended, ;) ).

    Dave, I’m sad that I don’t have any tomatoes this year. Even in a bad year, I used to pride myself on serving home grown tomatoes at Thanksgiving. Still no frost threats for us.

    Must close. Leaving in 30 min for rehab…for all the good it’ll do me. Have a great day! Kathy

    Good morning. We have a new cool front, so no high 80s or 90s today.

    Shot didn’t hurt or make me sick. Yeah! I was kind of mean and firm at rehab. She was really sweet and I know they are trying. She did the traction thing again it is always such a relief. We agreed to one more session to see if there is any change. If not, I suppose I’ll be moving on to neurologist. :(

    Dave, the good thing about blood thinners is the part where I don’t get hot much. Everyone here is still running their a/c daily. Sure has been nice to have a low elec. bill!
    Hope you find a car to fall in love with!

    Mary, a take it easy day never hurts any one. Hope you get your computer back right. Enjoy spending time with your GD.

    Stewart, enjoy your bus ride.

    Brenda, that “new dirt” thing sounds like something my brother and I would have thought of to try on our mom! LOL
    Bless your heart for having to face Wallyworld so early in the morning. UGH My neighbor’s son worked there and she had to pick him up at 1 am. We would go an hour early and get our shopping done. It was lovely being there while it was quite and nobody running a basket up the back of your heel, heaving sighs of impatience as you try to read a dang label or listening to crying children. It was wonderful and I miss the midnight runs!

    Marcia, loved your story of the train and share your sadness for all children miss out on as the “good ol days” just drop off and fade into the mist of memory. I used to love watching the man hang the mail bag and wait for the train to “hook” it as it sped by. My grandma insisting I come with her to watch the last run … of the last old black, smoke blowing locomotive screamed it’s way through our crossings and right on down the track to the shelves of history.

    Snow, such a good mama adding the chili to his take home basket! Love it!!
    I hate any time that the sun doesn’t shine on me, so I always dread winter. I don’t think I could survive a northern winter! LOL

    Alberta, I hope things at least slow down to a dull roar for the rest of the day! Hugs

    I must close this “book” for the day. Have a great day! Kathy

    Good morning. Must keep my nose to the grind stone this a.m. as I have another of the endless appointments. Dread it like the plague. Also, getting flu shot. Hope it doesn’t make me sick. ;)

    Have a great Monday! KB

    I can’t really see much of a close up, but it appears they are fan shaped. If so, they are probably scaveola.

    Good morning. Still in the 90s. Just a beauty of a day.

    Mary, that is so true and I have never been know to possess a great quantity of patience. ;)

    Brenda, I want to do that so dang bad it’s not even funny, but my neighbor and sister watch me like hawks. LOL

    Enjoy this Lord’s Day! KB

    Wow, I’ve impressed myself with my loooong post this morn. Maybe my brain is making some progress! Woohoo!

    Sorry, I just couldn’t resist a pep talk for me. ;)

    Good morning. Beautiful sunrise this a.m. Going to be a nice day. I shall miss these comfy days.

    No big plans today. I really would like to get the a/c out of the window and put away for the season, but it had become iffy situation for my continuing to do it alone before I got sick. Suppose I will need to be patient and wait until one of the boys happens by. Yet another blow to my independence! ugh

    Brenda, I’d have loved a video of that “tub” taking a stroll in the yard! That is too dang funny!! And the story of the mud brought back memories for me. My brother and I went “sffwimin” in a large mud puddle when we were kids. One of my mama’s all time favorite stories and after she passed, I found a photo of the 3 of us by the car on Easter morning. She had made note on the back that this is the puddle where Kathy and Jackie went “sffwimin”. I treasure it so much. Thanks for the memories!!

    Snow, that just sounds like too much fun!! And fun is just fun-er when shared with loved ones!

    Sherry, I know what you mean about the grass. I’ll have to hire mine done this time, so will hope for the last time thing, also. Seems so silly with my shinny new mower sitting in the garage, but they assure me I will get zapped by the vest if I try riding it. Phooey and double phooey!

    Stewart, enjoy your day!

    Have a happy day, ALL! KB

    Howdy, ON! So good to see you and know you are improving!! Didn’t realize you’d stopped FB’ing. Left my last message for you over there.

    Are you still sewing to keep your hands busy? Obviously, you can’t use the machine yet, but hope you’re getting there.

    Big ol Texas sized huggers! KB

    Good morning. Looks like a nice day forming. No plans for me..THANK GOODNESS! LOL

    Marcia, the alarm wasn’t too hard to figure out. At first, it seemed a little weird to hear “me” talking to “me”….then, I realized I’ve been doing it for years anyway! Hehehe

    Brenda, loved the chicken story! And yes, slow down a step or two sometimes and just kick back and enjoy. But, be sure you face in a direction that won’t give you a view of all those things that still need doing while you are sitting on your butt! LOL

    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. It is still morning here…but not for long. LOL

    My reminder thing came in the mail today, so I’ve been playing with it. You can record your own messages, so it’s pretty kewl. I know it’s sad when a person needs an alarm to be reminded to eat or take medicine. It’s been many years since I had any sort of schedule and I just can’t seem to get into the groove on my own. ;)

    Have a happy day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Wow, I slept in this morning. Who gets up at 9:30?! In my defense, I have had 2 FULL days AND nights. It was all good and had such good family times, but it is getting harder and harder to keep up with these kiddos and all of their activities.

    I think I may have finished up one more of the paperwork ordeals yesterday. A lady called to confirm some ID numbers and said she’s send it right in. Yeah! That would be TWO victories for the home team this week!! Maybe this is going to slow down for a while, but then I suppose some of it will start over with a new year. UGH Something dumb…finally found out the reason I am having to pay the 80% at my reg. doctor’s office is because the hospital was slow in filing their stuff, which means my deductible wasn’t met in time. It’s costing me $97 per visit! Everybody stays on my case constantly about getting things filed on time. Go figure!

    Today is mine, mine, mine…as far as I know. Hehehe So much still needs doing, I never know where to start these days. First thing I need to do is go on hunt for wasp nests. Every afternoon my front and back yard are full of them. I’ve already eradicated 2 on the front porch. I’m a bit nervous that they may be in one of the trees.

    LOL…guess I’ll close this out. Looks like I’m going to be busy at the door. Kids are out in force selling tickets for the Fall Festival.

    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Nice day. Will be able to have doors open this afternoon.

    Today is my sister’s birthday and I’ve promised to make her supper. It’s going to be pork chops and……. something. LOL But I will make her favorite peach cobbler. It will be alot for me, but I know I will be forgiven any mis-steps, so it will be ok.

    Have a wonderful day! KB
