Gosh, look how young those guys were.

Snarky, Have a good day in spite of it all.

I got good news and bad news this morning.
Our commode has been having flushing fits every now and again so I called the plumber to snake the drains. The bad news is the pump in the big underground tank has burned out. It's about 21 years old. Yikes! That is an expense I wasn't counting on!(That's the bad news) The good news is, I located a fella who has excellent word of mouth references, to bring in 24 ton of gravel Limestone) for our driveway. He will also bring his skidloader in to spread the gravel evenly, and neatly. Yippeeee! The price he gave us is 400.00 less than we were thinking it would be! Happy dance!

The boss-man is the son of a friend. He was telling me that he had recently lost his 'lady.' He said she had a sudden stroke and died. I could tell this was a man who was hurting Very Badly.
He told mme she was the most wonderful person he had ever known. He said, "Usually when I have a great loss, it is due to my own stupidity, but I didn't do anything to have to hurt this badly."
I feel so sorry for him. He said, "People tell me to get on with my life." I AM getting on with my life. I get up and go to work every day, just like my world hasn't ended."
Sad.

Reading that gives me that empty "Home Sick" feeling. The kind you get when you miss your loved ones so much.

Not busy and noisy yet, although I did have a new water heater installed today. The guy just asked if he could move my car so they could come and go through the garage and not disturb me. I was All for that!
Geez Murph,

Sounds like my house with all the "MUST DO" projects to maintain the upkeep of the place.

I found a place that will put good old fashioned heavy aluminum screen in our 3 big windows and two patio doors for only 110 dollars + tax. I asked for the senoir citizen discount! Tho the word senoir,...caught in my throat a bit! Haha.( I went in to check out their work) Now I can have my windows open in time to hear the spring peepers lullaby. Plus these screens should last for years and years. Not like the plastic of nylon screen that came in them when new.

We have bright SUNSHINE today! It would put a spring in my step if my darn feet didn't hurt.

I am such a chicken(....!) I just couldn't make myself go for that second shot. I know, I'm an awful wimp.
But I called the Chiropracter, and he said they could do some ultrasound treatments that might make the flare up subside. I went yesterday for the first treatment, I think it helped a little. I go again on Monday.
Meantime, I've never treated my feet so good!
Soaking them in nice warm water, Giving them a nice castor oil massage, and propping them up on pillows. Only thing missing is the bon bons, and tiara! hahaha

She told me that the first couple of times, I might be tired and achey afterward. I was a little tired and had a Bad charley horse this morning.
They guarantee that the tub wil be installed within 6 weeks. "We like to under-promise and over-deliver." A woman from the company called yesterday and said their electrician would be calling today or Monday to schedule. He will be here approximately 4 hours!!!
This should make your baths worry free and relaxing! If I ever get those Bon Bons I'll send you some!!

Hey there Ellie Mae!

When it gets rainy and cold, keep a heating pad nearby to wrap around your hand.
Has the rain stopped?

I loaded ol' Clyde up with bon-bons and a tiara. I told him to go Fast. Clyde doesn't really go very fast, ever, and he will probably eat most of the bon-bons on the way (even though I packed him some shredded wheat). At least you will have your tiara.

I know what you mean about keeping the place up. Always Something. I am glad you found such a good price on the gravel and grading.

Oh Thank you dear.

While eating bon bons in the new tub, make sure you don't drop any.
Brown streaks in the tub would be hard to explain!

Good Morning All.

I woke up this morning to the sound of the wind pushing on the windows and whistling under the eaves! Spits and spurts of snow are flying sideways. I think if I were to go out and don a pair of wings I could achieve lift-off!(snork)
Temp is 32 windchill 16.
I'm putting a roast and onions in the oven. While it cooks I'll work a puzzle, and watch the show the wind is putting on.
Large squadrons of leaves are on the move,
first one direction then another....
