HI:

Another hot day here--walked to the market instead of biking.

@missy would you say Oliver has mellowed? Is there still issues around feeding or has that subsided? He sure is cute!
@Austina I loved golf until I didn't lol

Hope everyone is having a good day. Will have supper out on a patio.

cheers--Sharon

Sorry I have not been around as much everyone. We are all ok but the warm weather always leaves me feeling drained.
@Austina Love your friendly cricket! :lol: We have actually been investigating crickets and grasshoppers. Didn't realise there were so many different types!
@Bayek How are you. Keeping you in my thoughts and wishing you a speedy recovery!
@Jimmianne Hows your little dog doing? Any sign of that sepkus ring yet?
@missy Glad you are still able to get out cycling and live those ice cream masks! Love your diamond studs. I confess I have never had my ears pierced!
We are all ok here. My cat Hershey is getting on well with her thyroid meds and her last bloods indicate her thyroid levels are back within normal levels, which is a relief.
I am hiding from the heat and wishing that september and cooler weather arrives quickly.
I will check back in tomorrow. x

Hope everyone is having a marvelous Monday! The weekend was good and I rested a lot.
@missy oh your poor legs look so painful. Thinking about aloe vera gel for you, maybe? And oh my your earrings are tdf!!! I love them and want more pics and details! I love the little halo. It's a nice alternative to jackets.
Love and hugs to all, quick drive by and back to work, crank it out a couple of more hours. I hope everyone is well and happy!

this is wonderful to read jimmi!!! animals are almost holy to me, they enliven and enlighten any life!


Slick, thank you. Ah...here’s my short answer lol. His adorable-ness is having a positive effect on the daily hour to hour mood! I no longer wake with a slightly uneasy feeling of dread, instead I cannot wait to see his funny face. He sleeps at the foot of the bed and I can feel him sneaking up toward me in the early morning hours and as soon as he has any indication that I’m awake he goes nuts with happiness. It’s very nice.
But still, like all helpful cures, there are side effects. He’s such a baby I have to focus on him 99% of the time, I miss my meditative walks just looking at nature, and I have trouble concentrating on my work when he watches me. LOL he watches me all the time. Before he came to me he had no training whatsoever. He’s a good dog, within a week he was housebroken, but everything else needs work and I have to be really patient with him and not let him know how frustrated I get. I’d forgotten what having a puppy was like.
In the States I have lots of animals, so I don’t feel guilty about leaving them home because they have each other. But this little guy needs me. He came to me from a big household full of dogs and people and activity, and now he and I are here in this quiet little house. He’s getting used to it, but the whole thing is quite a change for both of us!
I had been grieving over my tiny dog who died last year. It was awful because I was away and didn’t get to go through the process with him. But I have to admit that this new little guy is filling that hole in my heart. He has some of the same mannerisms so it’s really endearing, and I’d like to think that I’m honoring the memory of my little dog by getting a puppy that reminds me of him.
I’m sure we know intuitively when the time is right. For me, getting another dog was on the back burner for a long time and then suddenly it was time.
I wish I could share him with you in real time :)

Drugs are good right now @Bayek You made me laugh about John having to pull up your underwear..
I hope you feel better soon. Do you have to go to PT after you heal?
Big but gentle hugs!

omg you look so wonderful, each is beautiful and looks perfect on you!!! xoxoxo



Happy Caturday Saturday lovely ladies.




Thank you and I am so relieved Chris is continuing to improve. Continued good thoughts and healing vibes being sent his way. And hugs to you.


Speaking of healing vibes dear @Bayek we are continuing to send lots of healing dust and love your way and hope each day gets easier and you feel better. One day at a time. Soon you will be completely pain free and be able to move in ways you haven't been able to for a long time. Hugs to you Kate the great.

@Austina glad you got to FT Adam and Kim and see their friend too. Yes we did get to walk yesterday albeit a wet walk. It was still nice and just getting out really does wonders for the soul. It's funny. We haven't cycled for 5 days now but it's not as awful as I thought it would be. LOL I guess we adapt. Might try cycling today but concerned about flaring the eczema but we might go for it and fingers crossed the wetting of my legs won't put me back to where I was or worse. Glad you are taking care of your lawn and yes summer is on with the heat and humidity. Why is Greg adamantly against moving to the West Coast where the weather is milder. Oh wait I do know why and he is right but still I wish I could live in a milder climate. I digress as usual. Hope you are not as limp today and get to enjoy a nice walk. Hugs.

@Niffler75 hello there, hope your weekend is off to a good start. XO.

@Slick1 I hope whatever you decide to do today is fun and whew on the close call. Makes me super angry that people try to take advantage of our most vulnerable. Sending you so much love and big hugs and hope all goes smoothly and all remains well. And lots of healing dust to you too. It is always something and usually multiple somethings. One day at a time. XOXO.

@springerspaniel hope you have a lovely weekend and all is well and hugs to you and Ellie. Hope her recovery continues to go smoothly. XOXO.

@marcy how was work yesterday and how are you doing? Weekend plans? Hugs to you.

@Jimmianne hopefully The RealReal will fix this for you and your Sepkus ring will be on your lovely hand sooner vs later. Oh my gosh Kine is precious in every way and congrats on him reaching his milestones. Hugs to you and stay well my sweet friend.

Speaking of sweet friends @bling_dream19 your new necklace and ring are delicious. And I am so happy you love them. They look amazing on you. Wear them in good health and blingy joy my dear friend. So I tried the MC dresses on and they fit woohoo. Greg needs to do a little alteration on the mod print dress but nothing major. The mod print is super lightweight so good for hot days. The black and white polka dot dress is super heavy weight with a much fuller skirt than I realized. And as a bonus I found another MC dress I ordered last year and never wore. Very easy breezy floral print. I took pics.


Mod print and the dress is so light in weight

Polka dot super heavy dress with full skirt. I am getting a workout just wearing this one I think haha.
Screen Shot 2020-08-01 at 6.05.14 AM.png

And the bonus find in my closet with tags still on it. Truthfully I have a number of dresses with tags still on them so I need to get on that and try more dresses on and see what I am keeping and what I am giving away.

floralMCdress.png

OK that's enough of the fashion show for today lol. It is warm out but hoping to go cycling and hoping for the best. Not sure how far we shall get. But first lots to do here so I will bid you all adieu and wish you a happy Caturday Saturday. (((Hugs))).

Bayek!!! You are BACK!!! Don’t like the sound of that pain level though. These are the roughest days, but you are on the MEND!
I hope that man you have there to help you is not getting fresh.

Oh, The Sepkus ring. I am beyond frustrated. The RealReal is not helping at all. I would hesitate seriously before ever buying anything through them again, and as far as consigning with them, never. The reviews are horrible.
I called customer service yesterday and they tried to tell me I had not made a purchase with them. Since they never sent me an invoice (!) I did not have a number to give them. Finally they found me in the system.
If I didn’t want that ring so darned much, I would contact my credit card company and let them handle it.
The UPS regulations clearly state that they do not accept shipments of jewelry with diamonds in France. All this to-do because the ring has a few melee.
It’s actual such a minor blip on the radar of life, but you know how we are about our bling!

Edit: feeling less stressed. On the BBB website there are so many complaints about the realreal, but it appears that posting a complaint to the BBB gets results. I’ll wait a week and then file a complaint if the realreal has not contacted me.

GM lovely ladies!

@Bayek the house is looking great! And I am sorry about your pain level and hoping that comes down very soon. Continued healing dust to you and lots and lots of love and gentle hugs. You are da best girlie. XOXO.

@canuk-gal unfortunately no, Oliver has not mellowed. Neither has Gracie. They both still go crazy when the food comes out. Seriously like wild beasts. I am not exaggerating. It continues to be challenging re feeding and they still occasionally chase after Tommy so it's a pain. I was hoping they would calm down. But not yet. Thanks for asking. How is your mom healing? And I hope your son is fully recovered from his cycling fall. Hope you continue to enjoy cycling the rest of this week. We are rained/stormed out for today but maybe hopefully tomorrow. We did get to ride yesterday though woohoo. Hugs to you sweet Sharon. Stay well. XOXO.

@Slick1 hugs. Stay safe today and hope it’s a wonderful day no matter the weather. XO.

@Austina glad you got to play golf yesterday albeit not the best you ever played. It doesn't matter. You got out and enjoyed anyway. That is what counts. Thanks for asking about my skin. It has calmed down a bit. We cycled yesterday and through careful planning and spraying I did OK. It's challenging but thankfully not impossible and I hope I can continue cycling as long as I am here. How are Adam and Kim? I know how hard it is being so far away and so happy FT is available and you can see them on screen as often as you like. And hopefully one day sooner vs later in person. Hugs. Stay cool.

@Jimmianne arghh I am frustrated for you. Hoping that Sepkus ring shows up and shows up soon. You can always get your money back so I agree waiting a little longer won't hurt anything. C'mon ring get to our Jimmianne please! Hugs.

@bling_dream19 thank you sweetie. The earrings are a purchase from BN and they are pretty I agree. Bright and beautiful. HVS and the 2 main MRBs weigh only .98 carats total with surrounding microwave of an additional .15 carats. Set in 18K white gold. They are small but impactful and for me purrfect. I love the proportion of the micropave halo to the center diamond. Though I wish I had OEC studs now. But I cannot justify that purchase unless I start wearing studs more often. We shall see. Plus with OEC studs I wouldn't be able to get as white as H so not sure how I would feel about that since I do like how bright white (to me) they appear on the ears.

Profile pic.

How is your week going? Is the storm coming your way? We are getting heavy winds and rain here later. 70 mile plus winds is what is being predicted right now. With power outages supposedly going to be widespread. Hoping everyone remains safe from this storm.

@Niffler75 wow I didn't know your ears aren't pierced. I was older when I got mine pierced as my parents wouldn't allow it til I was 16! Then I stopped wearing earrings so they closed up but I was able to repierce them myself (with some hardy poking of the earrings into my closed holes lol) in my 30s when I started wearing them again. IIRC. Anyway if you ever get your ears pierced you have to let us help choose your first pair of earrings OK? Is there a reason you didn't pierce your ears? Think of all the gift options if you decide one day to pierce them. :)
I hear you re the heat. It's been brutal.


@MamaBee LOL I thought perhaps that was the case with your original post reply to mine. Haha. Yup they are baby goats. And now I want a baby (or a few) goat. OMG so adorable! How is Chris? How are you doing?

@Keeliamira how are you doing and how is your family? Hope you got to see the specialists and they were able to help you find relief. Hugs to you.

@MJ_Mac thinking of you and hoping life is going smoothly and all is well. Hugs.

@junebug17 stay safe from the storm and I am hoping it misses your area completely. XOXO.

@marcy how are you? Hope the week is going well and your employees at work are behaving. Are you reading any new books since you finished your last one this weekend? I hope you got to sleep in a bit later yesterday and this morning too. Sending you hugs.


And finally, a shout out to a special NIRDI who might be reading. Thinking of you and Greg and I are sending you bucketloads of healing vibes and many gentle hugs. Hope you start feeling much better very soon. XOXO.


SO we did cycle yesterday and managed 50 miles so I was very pleased because my Schamberg's didn't get worse and neither did my eczema. But we planned it carefully. We rode in Sandy Hook the entire time back and forth to get the amount of miles we wanted. The reason we stayed there is the shade with all the trees. But that meant we couldn't cycle to OG and to the ice cream shoppe. But I needed the shade to minimize the side effects of the heat and sun. And I have spray bottles that I spray my legs (to keep them cool and my Schamberg quiet) with so as not to get the back of my knees (vs the original water dousing I was doing before eczema flared) to keep my eczema at bay. Anyway it is a process and it is sort of complicated but so far it is helping.

Screen Shot 2020-08-04 at 6.44.18 AM.png


There were soooo many deer everywhere yesterday. OMG the most ever. Almost everywhere we cycled. Here are some pics. Baby deer. So precious. :love:

Today the storm is upon us so no cycling. Though I do hope to get out and maybe walk and/or run errands. We shall see. Have a good day ladies and please stay safe. (((HUGS))).

Happy Tuesday friends!
@missy they are purrrfect! Thank you for sharing the details of your beautiful earrings. I love the 18kt WG and the size of the diamonds and pave is perfect. I love dangles but there is something special about a classic stud too. And I'm still talking jewelry :lol: but speaking of studs, we've both got one!
It's wet and rainy here. Hubby is working from home today.
Oh @Jimmianne I hope you get your beautiful ring soon. How's Kine the cutie?
@Austina What's on tap for today? I'm sure you're having fun in the garden and enjoying life!
@Bayek Thinking about you and hope you are healing and your pain level is down. Just look at bling and that will reduce your pain level and raise your happiness level!
@junebug17 hope you're having a nice relaxing week and your family is well.
@marcy hope you're having a great week and work is less stressful.
Love and hugs to all!

Just checking in to mention something perhaps interesting to some of you.
When I went for my Prolia shot this afternoon the bone doctor strongly advised me to skip the shot until my next bone scan because my scores have greatly improved. He said I’m out of the danger zone.
I really grilled him because I thought perhaps France does things differently, but he said no, it’s an every six months thing just like the States.
He told me that if I really wanted the Prolia shot he would give it to me but that I don’t need it. I asked him about bone loss related to stopping the treatment and he said that the best thing would be to get a bone scan in a year and see how I’m doing, but at this time exercise, calcium, and vitamin D are all that’s required, and to check with him in a year.

@Jimmianne first of all WOOHOO! Amazing news! The best! But please look into what your doctor said about no meds. From what I understand you cannot just stop taking Prolia but need a relay drug if you are going to discontinue Prolia. The relay drug holds your gains. Congrats on all your improvement!

@bling_dream19 haha indeed we do. The best kind of studs. :halo: I am glad it is just wet by you. Hope the winds are calm and work is going A OK for you.

The masks came and we love them. Hope David and Tom love them.



Screen Shot 2020-08-04 at 2.29.23 PM.png


We managed to take a walk but got drenched. It was crazy. Winds and downpours. I get why our power went out but it is very tiring having it go down almost every week. Our power went out at noon. Gotta love the suburbs. Thankfully our generator kicked in this time and please let that hold. As long as the generator works I am OK but feel for anyone who has no power now. ETA of restored power is 8 hours. However my prediction is the power once restored will go out again because later this evening are the really high wind predictions.

@marcy how is your Wyoming weather? I bet it is better than ours today lol.

I hope everyone in the path is staying safe. @junebug17 thinking of you.

We enjoyed a nice walk. Despite getting drenched.

Hello lovelies

That’s great news that your bone density is better @Jimmianne, but boo to having problems with the ring. Keeping everything crossed that it will turn up soon.

I’m sorry to hear you’re still in quite a lot of pain @Bayek, I know it’s a major operation, but is it normal? Our friend Bill had his shoulder replaced, and he’s good as new now, so hopefully this pain will ease up and your mobility will be really great. Wow, the house is really taking shape, any moving in date yet?

I hope you’re doing ok @Niffler75, it’s been pretty warm here today and Thursday is meant to be another scorcher.

Oh @missy, your earrings look so much bigger, they really have great presence in your ears, you must have tiny lobes :mrgreen: Phooey to getting soaked out on your walk, and double boo to the power going out, thank goodness you’ve got your own generator. The masks are great, I’m sure they’ll be a big hit. Adam and Kim are fine, Kim is waiting to hear if she’s got the job with a different department. She‘s been finding it very frustrating dealing with one particular person who really isn’t a team player, and is just causing all sorts of problems.

Glad the weather is good where you are @bling_dream19 and yay to only a little bit more work before you can get out for a lovely walk.

Hope all is well with you @marcy and you enjoyed your lunch out with Marty.

What is it they say about golf @canuk-gal, and good walk spoiled :lol:

So today we didn’t go walking with Sue & Rob, they went to collect their new car, so we decided to go out. We went to Portsmouth to a big shopping outlet village, specifically to get some roller cabin luggage (I know, we’re not going anywhere, but we will eventually :lol:). Our Govt is also doing an Eat out to Help out scheme, so we sat outside and had lunch while we were there. Basically on Monday to Wednesday, various eateries are participating in the scheme, and people get a discount on their food subsidised by the Govt. We were the only people sitting outside this particular restaurant, and it was a bit windy because it’s by the sea, but it was lovely and sunny, and it actually felt ‘normal’ being able to go out. They had the whole place marked up with the direction to walk in, and shops were controlling the number of people inside, and of course, everyone was wearing masks, so we felt fine going.

We’ve got the gate people coming first thing to service the gates, then we’re going to go and get some soil and herbs for our raised bed, then I’ve got an ortho appt at 2.00pm. I’ve got some crooked teeth so I’m going to see if anything can be done.

Hope all the lovely NIRDIs are doing well

@missy I‘m happy you have a generator! Our power is out since 12:30. I lost everything in my fridge that I just bought yesterday. I packed my freezer full last night with frozen water jugs and food from the freezer in the garage. I think most of the freezer stuff should be okay if it comes back on in the next hour or two. If not then I’ve lost lots of mulah. Shatzie doesn’t want a generator. I have no idea why. He isn’t fazed that we lost all the food and I have to buy more. That man doesn’t make any sense sometimes..We also have septic so we can’t run water or flush...enuff said...I told him if it was still out tomorrow I was going to Maryland with you know what...haha :eek2:
Hugs to you all..My iPad doesn’t have any more juice! XOXO

Hi NIRDI’s!

@missy actually Marty woke those dogs up by setting off the alarm. I am sure their owners were going why are you barking? Ha Ha. Those diamond studs are gorgeous! Ooh la la. They look bigger than those stats. The halo goes well with Bubbalah. I got my ears pierced when I was 16 too; my parents told me I hate to wait that long and get it done by a doctor. It was my 16th birthday present - I got my driver’s license in the morning that day and had my ears pierced that afternoon. I started another book that was just released for a series I read last year. Then I need to find another series to start. That’s great cycling in shade helped your legs; darn no ice cream though. Great shots of the deer. The ice cream masks look great. Good deal you have a generator. Our weather isn’t much different than yours. Hot, rainy with hail possible almost every day. 10 miles south of town had 3” of hail a few hours ago.

@Austina it was exciting to see dragon safely land. Very cool and accurate landing. I am sure the Russians will not like losing the millions they charge us per launch. That is really cool you got to see where SpaceX was operating at Kennedy Space Center. One of my nieces is the weight engineer on Boeings Starliner so goes to KSC frequently for testing on it. I went maybe 30 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sorry it is still so hot there. Darn you didn’t play well at golf but you know what they say even a bad day of golf is better than most things. How nice to set outside for dinner enjoying a view of the sea.

@canuk-gal I looked up that bracelet; they are very pretty. I’ll buy me one too - hurry up and win the lotto eh? Oh no for a hot day. Enjoy supper on the patio.

@Niffler75 that’s good Hershey is doing well with the medicine. I hope the weather cools off for you.

@bling_dream19 glad you had a restful weekend.

@Bayek I hope you are resting and having less pain every day. Good luck with the therapy. They are making progress on your house.

@MamaBee I hope you are doing well. Oh no for losing food and not being able to flush. I hope the power is back on soon.

@Jimmianne what a PITA with your ring. Not a bad idea to ask your credit card company to reverse the charge. Yay for a good report card at the doctor.

I rarely take a mental health day but I sure needed one so that’s what I did today. I hardly did anything I normally do which was nice. I ran some errands, wandered around the local Botanic Gardens and chatted with a friend. Marty and I had lunch at Olive Garden and then I ventured to the grocery store. Marty hadn’t left for the gym yet so when I got home he packed in everything for me - you know impress me with those muscles. I wasn’t very hungry for supper so had a piece of toast and ice cream. I picked up some cookie dough ice cream and enjoyed a dish of that.

Take care.
Marcy

Hi everyone!

@MamaBee, oh no to being without power, that truly stinks and I hope it's on soon for you. As much of a pain as it is, if it's out for any length of time it might be a good idea to head to Maryland. Hope it doesn't come to that. How is Chris feeling? Hoping he's doing much better by now. Buddy the elf is so cute! It's so nice that you get to share some of Jackson's life, I know you must miss him very much. And I hope you get to hold baby Noah one day soon.

@Bayek, I am so sorry you are in pain. I really hope it lessens for you soon and you get past this period quickly. Take it easy and take care! XX Yes, I have the same car as Marcy, a Macan. It's really fun to see the house taking shape, it will be so great to be in a brand new home...with a pool LOL.

@Jimmianne, I am loving your success story, such good news! I'm so happy for you. I had a bone scan in March and was told I have Osteopenia, so it's encouraging to hear the Prolia worked for you if it turns out I need it at some point.

Kine is absolutely adorable! He sounds like a real sweetie. So glad he's adding joy and fun to your life and helping you with your grief. <3 I'm really sorry about the delivery problems with your ring and I hope it finds its way to you soon.

@Austina, exciting that you've booked a cruise, it's nice to have something to look forward to.
It's so nice you had a chance to see Adam's friend's baby. It's great you're getting in some golf...dh gets frustrated by doing well at the range and then messing up during the game too so you're not alone! Very nice that you ate outside at a restaurant, sounds like a lovely day.

@missy, your weight machine is very nice and should work out well for you. I love your stud earrings, they're really pretty and a great size on you! Nice to switch things up sometimes. I like the whiteness of H diamonds for studs too. Your nieces look great and those baby goats are precious. I hope your skin issues start clearing up soon and it's good you're able to manage them right now. It's great you have a generator to get you through and I hope you get power back soon.

@canuk-gal, sounds like you are having a nice summer, so glad you're enjoying the weather and the beautiful scenery...and I'm not talking just about sailboats LOL. So nice to eat outside too. I hope you're not too busy at work this week.

@marcy, your new ring is gorgeous! I love it, so fun to get something new and sparkly.
Glad everyone had fun at the poker game and LOL to the entry fee. I'm glad to hear the scar hasn't gotten any worse and that the cataracts aren't a major concern. I think it's great you took a mental health day and did some things you normally wouldn't do...you've been working really hard lately and deserve it. Wow, your flower pics are gorgeous.

@Niffler75, it's great you found a medicine that helps with your ds's car sickness, that will definitely make life easier for everyone. Terrific news about Hershey and her thyroid levels, you must be so relieved. How have you been feeling?

@Slick1, good luck with all the school preparations and planning you are dealing with, I'm sure it's stressful and I hope you also get some time to relax before school starts up.

@bling_dream, your pendant is fabulous! So sparkly, elegant, and blingy. And I love the color of your tourmaline, it looks beautiful in that perfect halo setting. What a lovely idea it is to leave the two rings to your nieces. Glad you got some rest this past weekend and I hope work goes well for you this week.

We made out fine with the tropical storm here, I think it must have been out at sea or something...it rained all day and we had some wind but no damage or flooding. Today was pretty quiet, just did some things around the house while dh worked and then we went down to the beach for a while.

Sending good thoughts to all!

GM lovely ladies. Hope everyone had a good night's sleep and is doing well. We had quite the stormy day yesterday. And we are still without many services.
No power here still with no ETA for restoration and no internet or cable or phone. So no internet, no cable, no phone, and no power to the entire area. Over 1.5 million lost power yesterday here.

Comcast restored internet and cable last night to the area but we were not able to (Greg restarted the modem and did everything he could do so it is a complicated issue and I sure hope the tech can fix it tonight but I am concerned about that) so a tech is coming tonight.

Greg cannot work without internet and the LTE network doesn't work for us here because we are on the edge of the cell towers with the water all around us. For now I was able to connect to the LTE so just wanted to post a quick update so you girls didn't worry. We are OK. Our generator is working so far.

@MamaBee hope your power is restored as I write this or that you are heading to your MD house where there is AC and internet. I feel you girl and I am only an IG message away...if that continues working. How is Chris today? I am here for you. Two poor ladies without internet or cable or phone. But you are more than welcome to join us as long as our generator continues working. We do have sweet AC so far. XO.

@Bayek girlie, how are you feeling? Sending healing vibes across the miles and lots of love and hugs.

@Niffler75 hope all is going well and that your little boy is enjoying himself and that you and dh are having a nice day too. XO.

@junebug17 glad you had no damage and all is working by you. It's crazy how reliant I am on things. Internet, electricity, etc. It's almost like we are in the dark ages now lol tho thank goodness our generator is working (please let that continue) but without internet and TV it is so quiet around here. Hope you have a good day.Hugs to you.

@marcy I love cookie dough ice cream. So happy you took a mental health day. You deserve many of those. What gorgeous flowers. Glad your day was a good one. How funny we both got our ears pierced at 16. My parents were so old fashioned that way. They would die if I were to get a tattoo and I am almost 55 so lol. XO.

@Austina sorry you didn't get to walk with Sue and Rob yesterday. However shopping at that outlet center sounds like so much fun. I miss shopping, I hope Kim gets that new job. Working with anyone toxic is hard. Good luck with your ortho appt. My bottom teeth are crooked as my parents never got me braces there and I always thought eh too late but hmmm giving me ideas tho I have enough wrong right now so many not lol. Hope the gate maintenance goes well today. Have a nice day today. XO

@bling_dream19 hope you got that walk in yesterday and thanks for the compliment. We are bringing the masks to D and T today I hope. If nothing else goes wrong here. Oy to the vey but gotta keep it in perspective. But I want my internet lol.

@Slick1 how did you make out in the storm yesterday? Hope all is calm by you and everything working. Hugs and love to you.

Hugs to everyone and since our internet won't be restored today I might not be able to post but just wanted to say I am thinking of all of you and hoping all is well.


Leaving you with the calm after the storm yesterday.

Sigh, Dave and Tom have no power so we cannot see them today and give them the masks we got them. It was the one thing I was looking forward to. Giving them the gift. Who knows when they will be able to reopen. Poor guys. They are not having (but who really is) a good summer.
