The markets ended on a positive note, and we made it thru a day - Friday - without an Obama press conference. ( I think I'm correct on this...)
The week was a blur, and now I'm going on a short trip .
A wonderful weekend to all, and remember: Stay the Course!
Be safe everyone!
Travel safely and have a great time.
Do you have the day off?
Are you up early?
Do you ever have a day off, JP?
How can he deny being a domestic terrorist when he admits blowing up buildings.
The system failed us when they didn't put him behind bars.
Like I said I am lucky that I am working. Now, that my eye sight is better,I can start looking Handyman jobs, around the first of the year.
The hospital called today and told me that I am to have my left eye operated on the 16 of Dec. That means that I will have clear vision for Christmas. YEAH!
Good Morning Everyone! ICFN, good news about your upcoming surgery.
We had another covering of *S* overnight. I will have to go out and shovel in a little bit. It looks like its here to stay.
I see OJ has been put away. It's about time. Maybe we could get Ayers to join him.
Picked up the movie Tora, Tora, Tora to watch over the weekend. One of our neighbors, Will Lehner, was aboard the U.S. Ward on that fateful morning. (The Ward sunk a mini-sub trying to sneak into Pearl Harbor.) A marvelous fellow that Will.
How's your *S* covering?
I have been hearing that this is going to be a mild winter. If that's the case I'd hate to see a cold one forecasted.
Tora, Tora, Tora...great movie.
There’s only 3-4 inches, but the wind has whipped it around to the point where there are bare spots and then there are drifts.
The wind drives the cold air straight thru you when you go outside.
The latter Pearl Harbor movie with Ben Affleck was nauseating.
We have some wind going on at the moment, but the snow is still coming down ever so lightly.
I can remember the sn**, when I lived in Albuquerque, NM. When I was in the 3 rd grade, it sn**ed 3 feet. It was very hard walking around as I recall. That was a record, snow fall,that year.
The last time I was in sn**, was when I was in the Navy, at Great Lakes Naval Station, Illi. I was at school, getting ready for Operation Desert Storm. Saw a few flakes land on my hand and said to myself time to go back to San Diego. Enough of this cold stuff.
thanks for your links Jeff - you always have good material
Lysie - those potatoes are about my favorite & the last time I had them was with you & G at Bob Evams.
I just dont take time ty grate them when baked & mashed are so much easier. Just looked at the pix again yesterday - fun couple hours!
Smart man, you. (no offense intended to all freepers who continue to live in the snow). :)
I grew up in snow in Kansas - no thank you - no more.
It’s very cool here this morning. In the 30’s, and I noticed there was a 5.1 eQuake in Ludlow CA overnight. Not sure where that is, but not near me. I think it’s out by Barstow.
My daughter is flying in the 24th from Michigan. Hope she doesn’t get caught in airport closures due to snow/ice.
Thanks for the fresh start and cyber b-fast today Lysie & Molly.
Where have you been, young lady? Getting well I trust.
Must run for now - I have an early morning appt with my DC, and am taking Beloved (Charlotte Rose) with me to show off. They saw her at her worst and have been begging to see her again.
Bev, jtill, I’ve been missing you. Bev, please fill us in with DETAILS of what you have been doing. I’m extra interested in relationship details, children, co-workers, ETC.
I think we are in the same weather pattern as last year. We have snow in the forecast 5 of the next 7 days. It snowed last night and it’s snowing now. Roads are messy but we are heading up north to chop down our Christmas tree shortly; this is the only day we can do it.
lol, my son had the opposite experience; my northern boy spent pre-mob in Mississippi and then lived in the desert for a year. The day after he came home it snowed and he sat outside, loving every minute.
p.s. Our nephew was in the Navy for 8 years..........did some time at Great Lakes.
Not that I would mind staying here in sunny Florida if the kids could be here, but hope it’s not snowing on Thursday when we’re due to go back, plus, hubby gets really cranky when it snows.
Just got back from visiting my uncle's widow. Greg replaced a light switch for her.
The casinos are really taking a beating here, layoffs like mad, cutting back on overtime for the ones left, SIL is still working thank goodness, he runs the high stake tournaments. JT has his fourth birthday party today, actually 4 Thursday and his entire class at school (all 7 of them) are coming to his party here at the house, me? I am going to be reading in my 'shack in the back' cause the mothers are bringing them and I am 'shy'. It is great watching them grow up. I go back to New Orleans next week for a checkup. I did not know it took a long time for up and did not know that the tummy hurting keeps on and on after a major operation. It is heck getting old, something 'breaks down' in the ole body all the time, reckon those parts just wear out like an old car. I got to clean my shack today but that want take long. I am thinking about putting siding on it along with a tin roof, that is if this fool cat I am so 'blessed with' by GD does not tear it up, He broke my wall clock the other day trying to grab the second hand going round BUT, GD DID bless me with this gift. All have a good day and please, pray for our nation, we need all the prayers we can get. Toby
Good afternoon, Toby.
Be patient with your recovery, Toby. It doesn’t happen overnight. If I remember correctly, I was still noticing occasional improvement 5 years after my surgery. Just a little bit at a time.
Sounds like you have a Devil Cat on your hands.
It's cleared up here; the sun is actually shining. For now.
We had lunch at Luigi's on Highway 41....ever been there?
There was an accident on the Tower Drive bridge the other day. I thought of you 'cuz I know you use that bridge on your way to Door County and as I recall you're not a big fan of it, right?
Mine used to, but not since he bought the snowblower. Makes life SOOOO much easier.:)
Where on 41?
Probably get our tree next week. Windy at the moment.
Youngest daughter came home from a slumber party and is now sleeping. Apparently the girls were up all night. Go figure.
Wife and eldest daughter are out shopping. My driveway's clear. Sounds like another system on its way in tomorrow night.
Heard they were looking for shovelers for Lambeau this morning. Maybe the Pack will win one.
No one ever sleeps at slumber parties.:)
Including the parents, usually.:)
Hi; This is gardner, reporting in from the North country.
I am remarried, relocated, and still gardening. Enjoying everything, but the snow. :)
Hey, there! Congratulations on the new spouse. I wish you many happy days. I don’t like snow either. It is too cold and too wet.
Lots of ATRW news you have missed.
Bev, J, look who is here...post 38.
Chicken wings, mozzarella sticks and mushrooms are on the menu tonight.
I’m coming directly after the SEC championship.
I’m terribly conflicted on this game.
Did y’all see that at the Army game today, the Army’s helmets were cammo?
Thanks, I have missed all of you too.
Hi Lysie, Do you ever hear from Illstillbe?
Those helmets were great!
How are your boys/grown men?
Last spring, as we were all saying good-bye to Kayak (she came down with lung cancer and passed away last April), illstillbe posted a few times.
But we haven’t made contact with her since. I called her once before that. I think it upset her more than encouraged her so I haven’t tried contacting her again.
I miss her greatly.
Hi, Have you heard from Guenevere?
