Good morning BCers!  
Current temp 23F.   Burrrr!  Yard patrol only took a minute or two. 
The cat and dog are now curled up on the couch near the woodstove. 
The checkup at heart doctor went well.  No problems. Energy levels are up. 
Blood pressure excellent.  Weight the same as last year.  Doc frowned at me....
Hey! I was up 8lbs.  Starved myself all day to get it off before seeing you.  Sense of humor intact. 
Gave a little blood for a cholesterol check.  Merry Christmas Doc and crew!  See you in June.
Stopped at MickyDs for a chicken sandwich.  I was starving!  
 
Dropped off the truckload of donations to Goodwill.  Had my hair cut.  Didn't get scalped.
Rolled it on to house just before dark.  It was a good day!   
 
Twirls,  Warm temps, Carribean breeze, view of the full moon from your patio.  Excellent!  
 
Uphill,  Happy holidays and all the best to you!  Ski on!  Enjoy every minute! 
 
Cindy,  what is in the candy that Badger was showing you? 
 
It looks to be a type of peanut brittle with no peanuts.  
 
All I have....
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!  Hugs

Absolutely a warmer place for retirement Bernie. Unfortunately, that is too many winters distant LOL!

Badger, sent you a PM.
 
I had another very severe and sudden abdominal attack after parting with B & B after breakfast.  So painful I almost didn't make it to the hotel.  Frankie, the bartender, saw me and practically carried me to my room.
Tomorrow I am going to Cancun to see a Dr that Valeria, the vet, has recommended.  Diane, who runs the shelter is going with.  Meanwhile sticking close here.  It's taking so long to get referrals and tests scheduled at home that depending on what the Dr says, I may stay to see what I can get done here.
At home I am still waiting to be scheduled for a test that was ordered prior to Thanksgiving and talk no word.  No telling how long it will be until the actual test, upper GI.  Meanwhile I also requested a referral to an Internal medicine specialist but who knows how long that will be.

Buenas Tardes Mis Amigos, hoy es Miercoles.
 
Twirls, I'll stop over in a little while to check on you.
 
Last full day for us, not many pix lately, but...
 
We stopped for a nightcap again at El P and the little banditos hit us up with another song
 

 
Twirls treated us to a great breakfast at John Gray's, the ladies both had the Eggs Benedict
 

 
And I had an omelet with bacon, asparagus and cheese
 

I will try to remember to take more photos tonight.

Feet were throbbing so taking a short break.
PJ, it is like a brown sugar pancake with chunks of coconut. When I can find it, I like to break it up into smaller pieces and just have a small bite of it once (or twice) a day.

Badger, those Eggs Benedict look fabulous, good choice by the ladies. Safe travels home tomorrow for you and Babs.
 
Bernie, that skin treatment sounds painful. Been a long time since I had to visit a derm, but I recall him using liquid nitrogen (I think) to remove a couple of bumps on my back, didn't hurt though. Hope you are close to through with your treatment. Kind of you to feed the kitties.
 
PJ, glad your treatment went well.
 
Twirls, hope the local doc can get you some relief. Sounds like a major PITA.
Sorry for all you are going through with stepsons, why do they feel so entitled? I have three stepsons from Jim's first and my relations range from very good to never see, but not one of them has so much as hinted I should leave money to them. I say, leave it to a couple of pet charities of yours.
 
crunch, glad your cousin is helping out so much with your Dad, what a blessing.
 
Neighbor ran a couple of errands for me including trip to bank and ATM with a stop en route at In and Out, YUM! Haven't had a cheeseburger in some time. Mid 60s here with no rain.
Do NOT like the new outfit, will give it away and either not order a new one or start over again. I found one that is perfect but the description says "Not available in California" so I guess my job is to find out why not. I don't think it is a tax thing.
 
Cute pictures of the kids, Gem. Feel sorry for the Santas this time of year, maybe they should make a stuffed Santa figure, parents could take pictures and kids could cry and pee without causing a fuss like they would with a real human.

Good evening.  Frigid air is on the way out which means snow is on the way in.  A couple of inches expected tomorrow morning.  Had a good mile plus walk and enjoyed the cardio class afterwards mid-morning.  A new gal showed up today so I am no longer the newbie at that class.  Got a couple of hours of reading in and then contacted Pastor Kevan about the 2020 Oberammergau trip.  He will check with Nawas and get back to me.  He will also send me the brochure for the 2021 11-day trip to Egypt which includes a 5-day river cruise on the Nile. 
 
I've never bought a travel protection plan before but these trips are fairly expensive.  I like the coverage particularly for emergency evac/repatriation, and accident/medical expenses while on trip. For this tour including airfare would cost roughly $500.   Would appreciate any feedback about others' experiences.
 
Holly, oh my.  Glad you have a medical appointment set up.  Maybe have the front desk have someone check in with you every couple of hours.  Your room is pretty remote at the very end.  
 
Safe travels Paul and Babs.  Enjoy that full moon this evening and have a night cap for me at El P, if you can.
 
Jamie, that's a shame the outfit didn't work out.  The good news was your neighbor's assist and you got to enjoy an in y out burger.
 
Bernie, you will be schlepping a much bigger bag this next adventure.  Much different list this time around.  How many more of those skin treatment appointments do you have to endure?  
 
Bob, just keep enjoying life.  It's short, as you know.
 
Kim, you and Tomas are doing a great job with the parent issues. Glad things are calming down a bit.  Hugs.
 
PJ, good news on the doctor appointment.  Didn't need any doc to tell you that your energy level is up.  I'm feeling I got to step up my game with you and Cindy.
 
Hola Cindy.  Had to google your hometown as I had it stuck in my mind that you were more central.  Didn't realize you were that far south east.  
 
Have a beautiful evening all, MB

Good Morning
Temps have begun to rise, we're at 21 now at 4:45, rising to 35. May get some snow, but less than 1/2"...the freezing drizzle is more likely. Even though it is such a big swing from the frigid weather, I don't feel as achy this morning, and that is a true blessing.
 
Jamie, sorry to hear your outfit did not work out for you. I'm not a fan of velour myself, but I have noticed that Costco has velour sets. Can't remember if the tops had zip fronts, though. Every time I'm at Costco I've been checking for my favorite Amanda jeans, which they usually have stacks of, and haven't seen any in a couple of months. Since I lost a little weight, most of my jeans are irritatingly baggy and droopy, would very much like to try a size smaller. And they are usually about half the price of what the regular retailers charge. I hope they are not an item Costco has stopped carrying.
 
MB, funny that you thought we were more central. That would be a long commute for Chris to get to downtown Milwaukee every day, and a really long drive for me to take Marilyn to the airport on Milwaukee's south side.
 
Got a disturbing call from one of my brothers yesterday. His oldest son and his wife are splitting. So sad, they were high school sweethearts, together all through college years, then married and have 2 little girls. 21 years together, all told. He went to counseling, but she refused to go...I just can't seem to wrap my head around it. My brother sounded so sad and I guess defeated. But he wanted to get the news out to avoid weirdness at the Christmas gathering...divorce is rare in my family. In fact, the only others that I know of are all attributed to my brother in Michigan; he is on wife #3.
 
Paul and Babs, safe travels today! Your weather will be worse than ours, but I think not as bad as initially predicted.
Holly, hoping you find some relief for your tummy issues.
PJ, I'm thanking Tennessee for this warm up here.
Gotta get moving, lots to accomplish today. Have a beautiful day!
Cindy

Bummer Cindy.........after 21 years and with kiddos.
 
Twirley, if your issue isn't gallbladder I will eat my socks. Your symptoms are classic. High fat meal and soon after....excruciating pain. I had mine out when I was 17 or 18. Same exact symptoms. Nothing showed up until it gave me Pancreatitis. It was because a stone was caught in the duct. They need to reevaluate your GB.
 
Nice and easy travel day hopefully for you Babs and Badger. Will miss those pics.
 
Got to ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun

Good morning
I was up before sunrise having rested most of yesterday. Fell asleep watching Christmas movies.  I'm sleeping much better with the borrowed foam pad. 
 Sunrise was a bit cloudy so not picture worthy.  Had some decaf coffee on my patio and now my liquid yogurt.
 
Easy way to the rescue again.  Jose Maria's wife will be the round trip driver to Cancun and back.  It's hard to believe the loyalty and friendship which formed by just renting cars on vacation.  Please, if anyone ever asks about car rentals, recommend them.  I cannot count the times they have come to my aid.
 
Hoping I learn something today about my condition.  I understand the Dr is great at diagnosing problems missed by US Drs.  It's an hour 1 way and will probably take all afternoon but worth it to learn something.  I've been waiting on tests and referrals to be scheduled which takes forever.  A test ordered by my Dr prior to thanksgiving and I still haven't gotten a call to even schedule it.  Once the appointment is scheduled, it will probably be at least several weeks out.  Of course my insurance rolls over at the first of the year and then I will have more out of pocket expenses.  I might as well stay here if I can get something done soon.
 
B&B will by here before they go so I'll see them off.  Leaving for the Dr at 1 and my friend, Diane, who runs Cause 4 Paws shelter, is going with me.  I'm very thankful for my local friends.
 
Sun just out from the clouds and it will be very warm again today.  Weather has been great.  I wish you all had the same.
 
Enjoy your day.

Howdy and good morning all.
 
 Cool out this AM with a current temp of 35F at 7:11. We should have mostly sunny skies with a high of 53F.
 
  Yesterday I went to the beach to feed the kitties. Chet had given me 4 cans of wet food that his two cats did not like. The beach cats gobbled it up with no complaints. Too windy with a light drizzle for a beach walk so I went to lunch. After lunch I stopped at Lowe's Foods to buy a few items. When I got home Freddie and I decided to take a little nap. My neighbor Doug dropped by around 4:30 for a visit. He will be taking care of Freddie when I'm gone to Colorado.
 
  Today it might be OK for a beach stroll. No rain today but a front with lots of rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Will give the beach cats some food and water. Not much else on my plate.
 
  Yes MB, I will be packing all warm clothing for my Colorado trip. Checking one larger bag with flannel shirts and jeans, another pair of warm shoes plus my slippers and full length robe. Then I will have one smaller carry-on for "other stuff". Obviously not the single carry-on that I pack for Caribbean trips. Reference skin treatments, I go to the dermatologist every 4 to six months. My normal visits are a full body scan looking for any precancerous spots that are frozen with a spray bottle of compressed liquid nitrogen. Feels real cold for the first few seconds and then burns like a hot cigarette on your skin. That is why I must use sunscreen when out in the sun for the beach or when out doing yard work.
 
  PJ, you had one busy day a few days ago with doctor's visit and errands. Maybe you can have a "snuggle day" with the dog and cat when it rains all day.
 
  Hi Jamie. Dermatologist visits just a part of life for me. The price I have to pay from childhood all-day playing outside in the sun. Back when most of us were little there was no such thing as SPF 50 sunscreen. Matter of fact, Mom always put baby lotion on our shoulders; like that was going to protect our skin. NOT.
 
  Badger, great looking eggs at John Grey's and cute picture of the "begging" kids. Hope you and a good travel day back home. Smooth sailing, guys.
 
  Cindy, sorry for that news on one of your brothers. A divorce is always sad. Please stay warm up there and make sure Chris is dressed properly for work. ( ie warm clothing ). Hee,hee.
 
  Crunch, I know you and Tom are not ready to retire yet but no harm in dreaming where you two might want to live one day, especially if it's a warmer climate !
 
  Holly, hope the doctor down there has some advice. Crunch may have 'hit the nail on the head'.
 
  Just put the garbage out.
Everyone have a good day,
Bernie

Good morning BCers!
Blue sky and nippy outside.  High of 55F this afternoon.
Pretty much took the day off from chores yesterday.  
 
Badger & Babs,  wishing you smooth travels today. 
Sure enjoyed all the pics from PoMo.  
 
Twirls,  hope the Doc in Cancun finds the source of your pain.
Did your friend arrive?  
 
Bernie,  beach kitties must really love seeing you arrive with food.  Sweet!
 
Cindy,  warmer temps do make a difference in how the old bones feel.
I am not hurting anywhere.  But pop n cracking like a box of rice crispies first thing in the mornings.
 
Jamie,  bummer that you can't find velour leisure suit that you like.
Having the same problem finding Danskin yoga pants that I liked so much.  
Don't like the newer versions. 
 
Wishing everyone a great day!  Hugs

Buenas Dias Amigos, hoy es Jueves.
 
Packing up and saying our last goodbyes to friends here, taxi to airport is at 12:30, last flight scheduled to arrive at DLH after 9 this evening. Theresa said I have a 1/2" of ice coating my pickup, but we are spending the night at a hotel and I will deal with it tomorrow.
Thanks again for all of your comments, it's been a very nice, relaxing trip with good friends, just what I needed.

Wag more....bark less.

Good luck on your appointment Twirls.  I sure hope it is not your gallbladder since I sure do want to see Crunch eat her socks.  And Crunch, no fair buying a new pair!  We want the ones you wore after your workout.  Be sure to record as it might get you on Youtube.
 
Crunch--Hope you know I'm just messing with ya.  Have a great day!

Good evening.  17 and cloudy.  Overall a very nice day.  Woke up to light snow.  Shoveled a couple of times before it came to an end around 11.  Then headed out for a lunch appointment with investment partner.  Roads were really bad but I made it both ways safely.  A couple hours of reading.  A few messages to doctor on My Chart and another call regarding Bavaria trip.  No record of Nawas Travel receiving my deposit for trip sent two months ago.  Resent earlier paperwork and I am confident things will self-correct.  Going to hit the fitness center early morning followed by a couple of errands before the next snow event starts up early afternoon.
 
Badger, hope the trip to MSP went well.  That's a long day for sure.  Sleep well tonight, safe travels manana with lots of doggie hugs.
 
Kim, just curious if you workout and walk every day?  I'm trying to find the right balance.  
 
Bernie, can you say J&J baby oil.....not lotion.  It's a wonder not more of us have chronic skin conditions as a result.
 
Cindy, clearly not central WI. My late Father, geography/social studies teacher, is shaking his head.  Hope you find those jeans at Costco after all.
 
PJ, I've been known to buy items in bulk knowing they will not be available in the future.  Kinda like cosmetics....
 
Jamie, hope you've got your Christmas meal ordered.  
 
Twirls, hope you are okay.  Did you friend show up yesterday?
 
Frank, you trouble maker. 
 
Hola Bob, JJ, Gem, Bosco, SoSo, and the rest of you.  MB

J&J baby oil with iodine was popular when I was younger - I was a Coppertone #2 oil gal myself, if you can still find it, the smell brings back lots of memories.

WiFi went out in the middle of a very long post explaining my situation.  I'm tired and will 're post tomorrow.  Dr visit was a success.
Crunch, no need for sock eating!  We knew it was gallbladder but other issues as well.  I'll be here a few extra days.

Good Morning
Felt very mild when I let the dogs out first thing this morning, no wind at all, but damp and earthy smelling. Happy about the no wind, yesterday it was really getting on my nerves.
 
I remember the baby oil days. In fact, one of my sisters continued using it well into her 50s. I never liked that oily feeling. But I did spend a lot of time in the sun and in my teens all of us girls would wear bikinis while mowing grass. But we all also tanned easily.
 
Holly, anxiously waiting for your report.
Paul, hoping you don't have to spend too much time chipping ice. Maybe it got milder up north, too??
Bernie, feel bad for you but understand; my one grandpa (my Mother's father) was a truly pale guy like you. Also a farmer. I don't think I ever saw him without long sleeves and completely covered. Always wore a pith helmet. Would burn to a crisp without the covering. Guessing you were sunburned often, too, hence the ongoing treatments.
 
Need to get going on the day, hoping yours is beautiful!
Cindy

Very interested to hear the update Twirley.
 
You could never offend me Frank. You did make me laugh though :)
 
MB - I used to work out really hard, but since the spinal cyst and heart stuff I had to really modify. The current routing is 30 min on the eliptical in the am Mon - Fri and 1/2 to two miles brisk walking when I can at lunch at work (2-4 days). On the weekends we just walk the mutts for 2-3 miles. Not a brisk walk LOL. Sniff, sniff, sniff, poop, pee, sniff, sniff, sniff - the mutts I mean 
 
Good luck this am Babs and Badger. May the ice be melted!

Good Morning Clubbers, it's Friday.
 
Long travel day, feel bad I didn't have time to say goodbye to Twirls. Hope she posts an update.
 
Just spent an hour removing snow and ice from my truck, now probably a 2 hour drive home the way the roads are.
 
 I need some Boat Drinx tonight.

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Today will be a rainy day on the coast. It's 44F at 7:36 and our high will be 61 degrees.
 
  Yesterday it was too windy for a walk on the beach but I did stop to feed the beach cats. They really like that wet food that Chet gave me. Both orange and black cats showed up to eat. I have a picture to post. Talked to Meredith yesterday and she said we will do some shopping for clothing that her boys need. That will be a crowded time the day before Christmas. Those grandkids are growing too fast
 
  Not a whole lot planned today. Trip to the beach to feed the cats and then lunch. After that I'll make a stop to see if I can find a couple of little cars to pack in my suitcase for Jack and Sam. They both love those little cards that you pull backwards on the floor and when you release them they go 'zoom' pretty fast. 
 
  PJ, I enjoy feeding those cats that live on the island. Yesterday there was a bowl of dry food sitting out for them, so someone else is also leaving food. No wonder they are not skinny. I usually sit in my truck to watch them eat and then I pick up the bowls to reuse them.
 
  Crunch, no sock eating is good news. hee,hee.
 
  Jamie, I remember those 'coopertone' days.
 
  Long travel day yesterday, Paul and Babs, and now more driving before you get home. I know that ice removal off the truck was not any fun. Welcome home.
 
  Thanks for thinking of me, Cindy. It's just a thing I need to do. I think the P.A. likes to burn me. Ha.
 
  Hope Holly doing OK.
 
  Coffee done. Catch y'all later.
Bernie

The Dr visit was quite amazing.  When I first heard about how this diagnosis is done, I thought HOCUS POCUS or BALONEY!  But sure 'nuff it's for real.  She uses an high tech electronic device that reads your entire body, every organ and area.  You lay your Palm in the designated spot and this things starts with organs first.  I KNOW, I KNOW, it sounds too good to be true but we all know our US medicine world is ruled by BIG PHARMA and they don't want easy and fast and certainly NO CURE..because there is no money in that.  Her office also had big scanners and lots of other equipment that I recognized from hospital tests.  I forget what this thing was called but I remember it works on electro magnetic _____.  Anyway, this scanner pegged me exactly.  Not only did it pick up info that I had told her about but divulged info only I knew that I had previously learned from long ago diagnosis.  Yes, gallbladder is one of the major issues but also liver, thyroid and deficiencies in my body.  Like my lack of vitamin K that I had been previously told in the past.  My gallbladder doesn't function properly and my liver too.  The thyroid has never been brought up by US Drs but is apparently the reason I can't gain weight and lack of appetite.  The RA was another highly indicated area and the meds I take are causing other problems.  I've been told I have osteoporosis but I've had some very hard falls on concrete (2 bad ones in the past 2 years) and in that cast iron bathtub while doing tile a few years back, yet I have never broken a bone.  She says I haven't had much bone loss yet and my bone density is still good but osteoporosis is present.  It was absolutely amazing.  I have the full report.  It shows where areas are normal, slightly off, moderately or completely deficient or too much.  My RA showed up way off kilter as it should have.  Other things like arteries, particularly in my brain were slight to moderately off, as normal for older folks.
BTW, this woman is not only a MD but also a surgeon and she was in charge of ER in Mexico city.  She has a list of degrees and credentials a mile long.  After a few hours of scanning and blood work, she recommends several organic supplements and...
Don't faint or scream NOOOOO... but STEM CELL THERAPY.  It's not the embryonic stuff but made from the umbilical cord of BORN babies.  It's specifically made for my body.  It's an injection.  The cells will go where they are needed to heal my whole body. It's not available in the US so she has many patients from the US and Canada.  One patient suffered kidneys failure and Drs wanted to do dialysis.  After 2 stem cell treatments, his kidneys are functional and improving.  He was there for his 3rd treatment.
I will start my first treatment next week.  It will be made for me in Mexico city and won't arrive until Tuesday so I will be staying a bit longer.  I will need to return 3 more times this year.  I should start seeing signs of improvement in as little as 3-4 weeks.  Meanwhile, in the state's I'll probably still be waiting for the test that was ordered before Thanksgiving.  I've been having problems and waiting forever up there.  It's like when I got RA.  My Dr knew that's what it was but it didn't show up on the tests so he couldn't get me an appointment with a Rheumatologist unless we had a positive test.  It took 6 miserable painful months until my joints were the size of footballs and I was in a wheelchair before a Rheumatologist could see me.  Then he didn't have to have a test because he knew I had it from looking at me.
I don't want to be put through the wringer again.
I'm going to give this a chance.  It's pricey but not as bad as it could be and I'm already here and plan to come back anyway, so the travel cost isn't really a factor.
 
I hope B & B make it safely home and the weather isn't too bad.
 
I wish you all the best.
 
Oh, . My friend who was coming was in a car wreck.  She broke a wrist but is otherwise ok, so she didn't make it.

Best of luck on your procedure Twirls.  Hope it works.  I tried stem cell therapy 3 times for my neuropathy, unfortunately it did not work like everything else I have tried.  But it was the US version where they take it from your belly.  $6,000 down the drain.  Insurance doesn't cover it since it is not a proven procedure.  Could I ask how much the treatment cost in Mexico?

Good morning BCers!
Cloudy and raining here.  A high temp of 49F for today.
Pushed up my sleeves and went to work on the man cave/family room yesterday.
This job is going to take more than several days to fully accomplish. 
Not putting the hurt on myself trying to clean it all in one day. 
 
There is going to be a lot of pitching of carp going down.  Never mind the howling. 
It is just the soul of a hoarder, SJ.   
Today I must work on Christmas cards.  Get those in the mail.  
 
Twirls,  Wow!  Very interesting.  Pray these treatments help to give you a better quality of life. 
Sorry, your friend didn't make it to PoMo.  
 
Badger & Babs,  welcome home!  
 
Bernie,  I remember those cars.  My nephews loved them when they were little.
Sure hope you are able to find some for the grandsons.   
Beach cats are pretty.  They do look well fed.  
 
MB,  sure wish I had bought a dozen pair of Danskin yoga pants.  So comfortable but look nice.
Miss wearing jeans but they push on my knees when sitting down and make them ache. 
 
Better get my favorite pen out and start working on the Christmas cards.
Everyone have a beautiful day!  Hugs
