Suzy I feel for ya, still miss my mom after 11 years, have conversations with her in my head and I hope she hears them.
Jamie, hope they get things figured out. ER is not a happy place to hang out.
We spent a month on the road with our travel trailer, visiting friends and discovering new place on Vancouver Island and the Okanagan. Looking at real estate that gets us away from long winters, firewood gathering and general house and property maintenance. Not ready for a condo yet, but something on one floor with a nice view would be perfect. Might rent somewhere for March and April to see if we can stand the rain that lower altitudes get in BC. At least no shovelling the rain!
Roatan has a new hospital so looking that direction for our winter getaway this year.

Good Morning Salt Miners, it's Twosday.
 
Barata, thanks for checking in, hope you find what you are looking for.
 
Bernie, nice pix.
 
PJ, sure hope SJ finds out what is wrong with his hand soon.
 
No post from MB?
 
A nice steady rain fell for about an hour this morning, our garden really needed the moisture, tomatoes are ripening nicely.
 
Hola to all!

Wag more....bark less.

Nice to "see" you Barata. Your plans sound good. Try before you buy! Everything ok health wise?
 
Where is MB? Hopefully not dealing with any issues. 
 
Looks like Badger and I even beat C&C to the punch today. Hopefully Cindy is sleeping in after all the activity.

Good Morning
Barata, I hear you on the snow. I do like 4 seasons, and I don't want to be a "snowbird", and now that the grandkids are fairly close by...I think we're stuck with snow. But I would like to convince Chris to think about a smaller property with less maintenance and more conveniences.
 
PJ, tell SJ we're praying for him. Hope when they do find out what is going on that it is fixable. SC looks lovely.
 
Had a couple of sprinkles yesterday, nothing that registered in the rain gauge. Sky is overcast right now and the humidity is getting back into the oppressive range. Just yuck.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, I need to go see what devilment Sophie is up to...

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Nice bright sunny skies this AM and should be mostly sunny all day.  Current temp is 75F at 7:50. The beach high will be 90 degrees. Upper 80's for at least the next two weeks.
 
  Yesterday I went to Walgreens to pick up a 'script then to the bank and afterwards to.....wait for it.... Fibber's for lunch. I had the oriental chicken salad. Had never tried it and it was very good. On the way home I stopped for gas. In the late afternoon just before dark I finished cutting the grass. It was actually a great day without doing anything that special.
 
  Today I have a doctor's appointment at 2:30.
 
  PJ, hope the doctors can figure out what's going on with hubby's hand.
 
Crunch, yes, it is good to have the house back to normal. I enjoyed being with Jack and Sam but I did not enjoy it when they would fight with each other, plus whine and cry to get what they wanted. Meredith and John have a different way of raising their children. So be it but it is hard to watch and listen to the chaos.
 
 Holly, how old is that original a/c unit in your house ? You might want to get a few quotes for replacement now by reputable established companies, as opposed to waiting for it to die.
 
 Hi Barata.  Good luck with your search on the islands off the Vancouver area. I hope the Roatan trip is fun. Have you two been there in the past ?  I hope I can get there one of these days.
 
  Badger, did you get that delayed garage job finished yet ? That was a cluster, si ?
 
  Hi Cindy. I understand fully about 'downsizing' on your home. Climbing up & down stairs will only get harder as time goes forward, plus cutting all that grass is a pain.  I would start looking for a nice ranch style home that suits your needs. 
 
  Just had a long call from my brother Bob. He has developed heart problems and going to see a specialist here in a week. They will do a heart cath first.
 
Time to get.
Y'all have a good day,
Bernie

Morning
UGH. another long and partially sleepless night.
 
PJ, I hope it's something easy to fix with SJ.  Hand issues can be hard to diagnose correctly.  Feeling bad for him and you, since you have to help him and I'm sure he feels bad about not being able to do simple tasks like button his shirts.  Been there and I was pretty helpless.
BTW, SC is simply stunning.
 
Barata, I know I could not deal with the dreary gray rain and fog of the Pacific NW.  Good luck.  
 
The rain missed us again last night but they say a "cold" front passed and we should be cooler with less humidity!  YEAH!  Yesterday was a day to stay submerged in the pool.  Didn't go anywhere and stayed in a swimsuit and wrap all day.  It was even too hot to walk the dogs. There wasn't even a whisp of a cloud all day!   It got hot very early and still felt like 101 at 9pm.   It does feel a bit drier today so far.
 
Leftover chicken and fixins were still so good yesterday.  Yummy again!

Was having problems with picture sizing app....all good now so will post a few pictures of  the day on the beach with Meredith/John/Jack/Sam. I didn't get many pictures as camera battery died that day. Meredith has some on her phone and will send when she can.

Good morning.  Thought I would check in early for a change.  Sipping coffee and waiting on painter to arrive.  He was here yesterday did some more mudding, repaired ceiling and I found the original oak stain for the couple of trim pieces he will install around base of vanity.  Exhaust ceiling fan motor will be replaced.  Old one was so gunked up with hair spray just wasn't worth messing around with anymore.  Today the painting of ceiling and walls starts.  Two coats.  Super excited to get my bathroom back.  Currently everything is stacked/stored in my bedroom.   Picked up some storage bins at Walmart on Sunday and then bought some fun metal artwork to incorporate on open kitchen cabinets.  Most of which is up there now will be stored away.  My plan is to totally get rid of all the clutter.  
 
Cindy, the oppressive dew point has returned here as well and barely a leaf moving. Storms expected this afternoon and then a pleasant cool down.   Don't know if the Andersen stuff is resolved or not.  Will see if gale force winds are blowing through in DR under sidelights and door when winter arrives.  Made them pull the trim off so we could all inspect the insulation install.  The enemy claims they found some open cavities that were not sealed properly.
 
Susy, big hug sent your way about Mom.  BBQ's ribs always a favorite for me.  I enjoyed meeting you and Tim.
 
Bernie, cute family pics. I agree with Holly.  Quite the resemblance to Sam.
 
Crunchie, fingers crossed for you on the car/home AC.  Hope things have simmered down with family affairs.
 
Edit: PJ, sure hope all works out with SJ's hand issue.  When is his ortho appointment?  Cute pic of Ms. Sassy and your beautiful daughter.
 
Hi Paul.  All good in my hood.  Say hi to Babs for me.  Hope she is doing okay.
 
Frank, glad you are checking in more regularly again.  Think about you often with those chronic pain issues.  
 
Bob, loving all your hiking adventure photos.  
 
Make it a great day.  MB

Good morning BCers!  
Sunny with another hot day on the way.  Storms coming later today. Then we will cool off into the 80s. 
Ran the errands yesterday, did the grocery shopping and picked up ear meds for lil doggie yesterday.
(parking lots were hotter than h*ll!  Sweat was pouring off me.)  
Lugged it all into the house.  Put it all away.   Pooped me out!  Slept hard last night. 
Maybe buying that case of water with 8 free bottles was not a good idea.  Forgot who was going to have to
carry it into the house.  Sucker was heavy!  Back is a bit sore this morning.  Moving slowly.
Two Advil and a walk across the street to take care of the cat.  Loosening up now.  
SJ has an appt with a neurologist on Aug. 30th.  Sure hoping the doc can figure out and fix whatever is wrong. 
It really bothers SJ to have me do stuff for him.  Like button his shirt.  Write checks.  Cut up his steak.
Anything that requires fine motor skills.  
 
Barata,  nice to see your post.  Hope you find a place with no snow and easier to keep up.
Roatan would be nice for a winter getaway.  
 
Cindy,  if Chris is anything like SJ.  Going to be difficult to move him to a new place. 
Odd note... my snowball bush has tiny blooms on it.  Never witnessed that before. 
Usually only blooms for a short time in spring.
 
MB,  hope all is well with you. 
 
BeachBilly,  are you getting whooped upon by the storm today? 
 
Badger,  made a haul on the Rawlings baseball gloves and hard balls in the clearance dept. of Wally World.  YEAH!!
Even some cute little small gloves for little ones.  Cleared the shelf.  
 
Jamie,  hope you are feeling much better.  That lingering cough just wears a person out.  Hugs
 
Crunch, feel the same as you.  Please don't let the a/c fail!  
 
Frank,  Hmmm....how do I say this.  Cause she might read what I say. 
My skinny SC the two-fisted sugar eater.  Who always got away with it.  Because she never stopped moving.
Now has a desk job.  Has put on some weight.  Her face has changed a bit. 
Trust me there is not much sugar in her life now.  Fighting to get that extra weight off.

How come men have such a hard time with change PJ and Cindy?
 
Exciting to hear things are really progressing MB.
 
Twirley -hope you get better sleep.
 
Our weather is ranging from an overnight low of 82 to a high of 103 ish right now. Dog days of summer indeed.

Got hit with about 2" of rain in a very short period of time.  Big congratulations Pam on your daughter's acceptance at U of M.  You should be a proud Mom.  And, yes, Kim coming to the end of the bathroom reno.  Super excited.  My neighbor Mary Jo and her husband are headed to Missouri for a golf event and visit to husband's sister.  Leave early morning. I am glad to finally offer back something for all their kindness to do a few odds and ends until they return on Monday. MB

Evening all
BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO SC!  What an accomplishment!
 
So PJ, you planning to bring the gloves to POMO in DEC?  Good score on your haul!
 
I'm itching to book a trip of some sort.  My mind is dreaming of things I want to do but trying to time it all and pay for it is the issues.  I'm watching the flights to CUN in for several dates in fall.   They all seem to be pretty much the same same, depending on day of the week, no matter if it's October or December.  Normally by now I would start seeing some variation in price on certain days.  Not this year. but I'm only checking Delta.   Also looking at Charleston in mid spring for flights and hotels and dreaming of a New England small ship cruise.

WOOO-HOOO!  I just checked Delta and even though the dollar prices hadn't changed, the miles trips did!  I got the two weeks flight for 46,000 miles on the best flights for fastest flights and in Comfort Zone!  Meaning free booze and more room in the front of the plane just behind first class.  It's too hard for me to maneuver the tiny aisle in the main cabin.  Otherwise it would have been 10,00 miles less.  I just checked this morning and they were still 52,000 miles and had been for some time.  I erased my cookies and browsing history and checked after 9 PM.  Tuesday night is usually a good time to find reduced fares from here.  I was lucky.  earlier this year it was 50,000 and rose to 52,000.  I was beginning to think I wouldn't find a better deal.  I have enough miles left that in a couple months I hope to have enough for a February flight, I hope!
 
Hope to see some of you there.  Tomorrow I'll call for a room and get prices.  Now I'm just dreaming about the restaurants and the food....

Well, I really don't have a problem with change, I just put it all in a piggy bank and then use it for a special dinner on our vacations.
 
Twirls, good for you on booking for December, might have to start dreaming about a trip.
 
PJ, congrats to SC, and nice score on the gloves and balls!
 
Bernie, thanks for the pix. Yes, I finished that big garage, starting on another one today.
 
MB, I feel bad for all of those who are suffering in the heat, yesterday we had cool breezes from Canada and a high only in the 70s, it felt great and we'll have more of the same today.

Wag more....bark less.

Good Morning
Was sweating profusely in the humidity and heat yesterday. My back needed a rest and dark clouds were moving in, so I took a break. Even the dogs were listless. We didn't get any rain, but the wind shifted from the SW to the NE and it was heavenly! We should have several days now that stay in the lower 70s with lower dew points.
 
PJ, congrats to SC! I'm sure she will shine!
Good for you for booking, Holly!
 
Crunch, I think I remember you said Tom grew up Lutheran? I believe that is the issue with Chris. Lutherans are notorious for their fear/suspicion of CHANGE. No idea what's up with SJ, I know he is not Lutheran. LOL. (oh, and I think that fear of change mainly falls on the male side of things...I rather like change, if it is for the better.)
 
Both of our PCs are running really slow this morning, so I'm gonna move along; have a wonderful day!
Cindy

Score Twirley! Tomas is going nuts about the airfare. The prices for November on American are insane or beyond. Maybe he needs to erase his cookies...........as long as they aren't chocolate chip - ha ha.
 
Love the pics Bernie - gracias.
 
Awesome on the neighborly assists MB. A good neighbor is worth so much.
 
Done with my "twigs" for breakfast so I best get on chipping away at the work load.
 
Oh, it is raining! Only 78 this am with the rain. We needed it, but glad I leave at zero dark thirty for work because the commute will be a mess no doubt.

PJ, what great news!

Bernie, company is fun, but it's nice to have your house back, eh?

Yesterday was a different adventure. A boat cruise from Portland to Bailey Island Maine. We saw a good deal of light houses. 



Note the lobster boat near this one to get an idea of the size

I'm thinking I could live here:

This is NOT a light house, it is a monument to all the sailors lost at sea. As well, it is also a sanctuary. Notice the door in the bottom of the spire, it is stocked with food and water and a fireplace. There is a story of one sailor living on this island for 2 1/2 weeks before they built this sanctuary. 

Here is a cute little gazebo on a point of an island. Notice the coloring of the rock shore line. It has iron ore in it and is rusting.

This is the world famous cribstone bridge, constructed of granite in 1927 connecting Orr's and Bailey islands. The only thing holding the cribstones together is gravity. They are just laid, one upon another. 

And you thought those Lincoln logs of your youth wouldn't get you an engineering degree?

We did get to see some porpoises, but I didn't get an pictures of them, just happened too fast. We saw plenty of seals, herons, ospreys, and even an eagle. 

And here is the smallest lighthouse in Maine


Now for something different. This is a lobstering area. 

A lobsterman may have as many as 800 lobster traps in the water. He'll harvest 400 every other day. From each trap, he can expect one keeper lobster to sell. I was watching and they threw a bunch back, either too small or too big. Occasionally, they'll catch an egg bearing lobster, they'll go back overboard as well, regardless of size. I am told that they snip a V-notch out of the tail, which remains a notch, even after molting. This identifies her as a female and she will always get thrown back. They need the females to propagate the species. 

The amount of gear required to harvest lobsters is amazing. You have the traps costing over $50 or $100 each

With brick, to make them sink

You can see the way the netting is held in place to trap the lobsters. Each trap is attached to some 100 feet of rope and a buoy. 
You can see all these buoys in the water near this boat.

The purpose of the sail on the rear of the boat is to ease handling the boat. Every time they stop to pull a lobster trap, they do not anchor, they set the idle just enough to hold them against the tide or current, the sail keeps them pointed into the wind, a crude auto steer, while they empty the traps, re bait them and toss them back. A winch does the trap pulling for them, basically a motorized wheel that they hook the rope over and it pulls the trap up. 


Take a look at this boat, you can see the buoy in the water behind it. Notice that it matches the buoy mounted on the top of the boat. He is only allowed to pull his own traps, identified by the buoy. Quick easy recognition.

When I first moved to Maine, lobster wars were not uncommon. People would pull other's traps, cut their lines, costing others their expensive traps, taking shots at each other (Yes, with guns!). They had to get the marine patrol out towards Rockland some decades back, IIRC. Things have long since simmered down, but occasionally you'll hear of an argument about people some guys putting their traps right on top of someone else's. Everyone has a certain territory they lobster from.

Lobstering is an expensive investment, the boat, the traps and buoys, the rope, the baiting, actually going out there and getting them. This is an all weather profession. The boats are often longer than needed, as when it is time to bring the traps to shore, they need the deck space. In winter, the lobster move to deeper water and due to ice, it is difficult to trap them in shallower water, so some lobstermen move their traps to deeper water, with longer ropes. Winter lobster always cost more, as a result. Much of winter, most lobstermen repair their traps and gear. 

On a good day, a lobsterman may come back with 400 lobster, which he'll sell for several dollars per pound (The smallest weigh a pound, the largest can push 5 pounds). Out of this, he has to pay for and maintain all his gear and boat, as well as pay himself. You can understand why lobster is always the most expensive item on the menu. 

Anyways, yesterday was a great day on the water, a bit different than I am used to!

Have a great day all!
 

Lovin life,
Bob

Howdy and good morning all.
 
  Slept in this morning and it felt great. It was raining  so that made it easy to go back to sleep. Right now it is cloudy and damp turning to partly sunny later this morning. More t-storms in store. Current temp is 79F at 9:18 with a high of 90 degrees.
 
  Yesterday's gastro doctor's visit was with the P.A. She went over my past history from Colorado to present. They scheduled a colonoscopy for me on the first available date : Oct 1st. Guess there are a lot of a-holes
out there. Ha !  I can hardly wait to taste that wonderful cleansing liquid. Ugh.
 
  After doctor visit I was hungry so I drove to Fibber's for an early dinner. They also have yummy cheese burgers so I opted for one.
 
  Today I will do my grocery shopping. Probably will get a load of clothes done while I pay some bills on-line.
 
  Looks like a nice little trip, Bob. Thanks for the pictures of the lighthouses and lobster boats. Yes, that is very hard work to be a waterman.
 
  PJ, reference the heavy load on water bottles, I leave them for the last item to place into the house. Then I "slide" them from the rear of my truck onto my dolly and wheel them into the garage. I cut the plastic wrapping open and place individual bottles into two of those smaller grocery bags; one for each hand. That way I 'break' up the load and just make 2 or 3 trips into the house instead of the struggle with one heavy trip with all those heavy water bottles. A few more steps but it saves my back.  Kudos to SC for her graduate college acceptance.
 
  Good score Holy on your cheaper "points" flight with better scheduling.
 
 Crunch, I can understand the apprehension by most men concerning big changes within the household. From an early age we see our fathers leave the house each day for work so they can keep food on the table, clothing on our backs and a roof over out heads. It is instilled in our being to become the future fathers for our own households, the rock of the family so to speak. That is why we fear the uncertainty of major changes concerning our families. Then the Mom of the family consoles her mate and tells him that everything will be all right and the change will be good.  Anyway, that's my theory.
 
  MB, good to hear that things are coming together on the house changes. Please shoot us some pictures when it is all completed, please.
 
  Badger, one more big garage down, many more to come. Now break into a chorus of " another one bites the dust " by Queen. Hee,hee.  Good job, man !!
 
  Time to giddy up. See y'all later,
Bernie
