Good morning BCers! 
Partly cloudy and humid.  High of 91F today.  
 
Badger,  Here is a pic of the kitty.
 
Nose and paw pads are still pink.  Maybe 4 months old?  Unless we can find her a new home. 
She can stay.

Uphill,  Pics of paper bags at my house.
 
You can see where the wood borers had been working on this post.  Never see any wood borers now.

Thanxs for the pics, PJ. Water/rain doesn't seem to matter? What is inside again? Just wadded up paper to give it some shape? 

Lovin life,
Bob

Morning all
Up way too late talking to my buddy in CA.  I'M going to try to reschedule my trip there.
 
Still HOT AND HUMID.  
 
Snorky, THANKS for the invite but I wouldn't be a good addition to a group of horse women.  Horses see me coming and LOL as they wait to torture me.  I'm a horse lover from afar, like in the grandstand.  Portugal would be lovely but not high on my priority list.  So many things I'd love to see and do and a short time to do them.
 
Today I NEED to vacuum this house.  There is enough fur rolling around to weave a couple of king size blankets.  No housekeeper for a month or more.  I have to find another with NO SMALL CHILDREN.  They're always sick.

Isn't that just one of the realities of life? And yet, if you advertise such a statement, you are discriminating. If you asked for dependable, you are not. 

I went out to the garden and brought in today's booty, which included a few cukes I missed the past couple days, they were huge. I didn't even bother with them, just tossed them over the bank. I picked 10 more proper sized ones anyways. 
And... I picked 8 golf ball sized tomatoes. These were tri-colored, red, brown and green. I figure they must be ready, so I tried them. These are less acidic, but definitely a tomato. I think my SIL was trying out a new breed and gave us some extra seedlings. Tasty!

Hooboy, any time I go anywhere, I see who has their car windows rolled down and I load them up with veggies!!! I hope they like cukes and zucchini! I have tonight's dinner all set on the counter. I've got a sausage thawing to go with the spaghetti zucchini I am making. Gonna add some carrot and pod peas to the mix, along with garlic and onion. All from the garden, except the sausage. Gonna eat good tonight!

Lovin life,
Bob

Good Morning
UHK, plastic grocery bags for stuffing. Recycle them after the first frost. I mostly use cloth shopping bags but still seem to end up with countless plastic bags. The 3 bags I have hanging have held up through several wild storms. I doubt all paper would.
 
Church was wonderful this morning. Had a missionary from Lebanon who is working with Syrian refuges who have fled to Lebanon.
Heartrending stories, but also wonderful stories of conversion. The message of love, rather than war and hate, resonates. Katia, the missionary, spoke very slowly as her English was "broken" (her words), and at times got choked up. It was very moving. She is being sponsored by Lutheran Hour Ministries. (LHM on the web)
 
Had a dog party here yesterday. Eldest came over with his "step-dogs"; GF was working so he brought them here for some running. Then we sat around and chatted for a while. Hard to move around anyway with 4 dogs underfoot. Edwin, the Jack Russel mix, got "rude" with Emma, Mom's dog. Both of these dogs are rescues from Alabama. Matt said "You can take the dog out of Alabama... but you can't take the Alabama out of the dog" (BTW, all canines present were neutered animals)
( with apologies to anyone from Alabama)
 
PJ, I've always been partial to black and white cats (maybe growing up around all those Holsteins?). I think you should keep him/her. Are Elphie and Cudi getting used to the new family member?
 
Sunny and H&H. No rain in the forecast till Wed.-Thurs. With a maybe attached. Will probably have to drag the watering hose around again. Then more weed pulling. Japanese Beetles have decimated my Ninebarks. All that is left are the leaf veins. Have never had this problem before. They are horrible. Just everywhere.
 
Time to quit dawdling, have a wonderful day
Cindy

Uphill,  I stuffed the paper bag with plastic grocery bags.
Water rain doesn't seem to bother the paper bag.  Just makes it look more and more
like a real nest.  I suppose eventually the bag will have to be replaced. 
But hey!  I got bags and they were free.   Here is another pic of brown paper bag on upper deck
where the mud dobber wasp had made a nest.   We could hardly stand on the deck for all the wasp and
wood borers in the summer months.  Though not best decoration... that brown paper bag has made a 
world of difference.  No pesticides needed.   If only it would work on those fake lady bugs that will be coming in fall.

I'm usually home all day because of my feet problem.  Don't know if I should go out and buy  a pistol or not.  My 12 gauge shotguns will put to many holes in the wall

Going to try another chiro next week on my own dime next week since it seems like it is getting worse. Recommended by the lady who does referrals at my PCP office. TENS unit delivers tomorrow.


Crunch--Sorry it didn't work.  I went to a chiro last Friday for the first time.  He took a lot of X-Rays.  Last Tuesday my right arm started to tingle all the way down to my pinky finger and next finger over. non stop tingling since Tuesday. He said it is probably a pinched nerve in my neck and he will tell me tomorrow when I see him again.  Also told him about my feet so he wanted time to review the tingling and due some research on my feet problem.  I'm just hoping the neuropathy in my feet is not spreading to my hands.  I once told one of my doctors jokingly that was about ready for amputation.  He replied it would not help as it will spread to another area.  What to do , what to do.  Good luck with your chiro appt. Crunch.  I pray he can help you
 
Well headed to mom's house to fix her rosary that was blessed by the pope.  Apparently the one my son gave her that he got in Ireland doesn't have as much power.  I hope one of the 10 rosaries she says a day is for me!

Afternoon all,
 
Frank, hope both you and crunch have good luck with the chiropractor.
 
SNF, trip to Portugal sounds wonderful, I remember a year or two ago you went and the pictures you posted of the horses were so beautiful.
 
PJ, glad you are wasp free, I remember years ago at work, was looking out of my boss's window and this HUGE swarm of bees descended upon the inner courtyard and had built a nest in what seemed like no more than 5-10 minutes. Luckily the head of security was a beekeeper so they sent Ed home to get his gear and he returned and captured them all and took them away. Scary.
 
Twirley, that cruise sounds really nice, but dunno, 18 days sounds like a long time to be on a ship. Can't remember, have you been on a cruise before? Don't remember you mentioning it one way or another. I never have since I want to be on my own schedule, but if I ever went on one, always thought a cruise around the Greek Islands sounded awfully nice, except for the LONG flight.
 
Bernie, did you or your neighbor ever trim those bushes you mentioned?

Good evening.  86 and fair.  Had a great time with Phil & Holly.  We fished on Lake George in a regional park a 20 minute drive from their home for a few hours Friday afternoon.  Had lots of nibbles but no fish.  Then headed to the Out Post Bar & Grill and started out with State Fair Cheese curds.  Great food followed in a local hang out.  Headed out Saturday morning and were launched by 9:30.  Caught a bass and sunny, catch and release.  Just enjoyed being on the water fishing.  Packed sandwiches and munchies.  Got off the lake around 5 and then Holly's sister joined us about 7 for a brat fest with fresh sweet corn, home grown tomatoes with a few other sides.  All the smoke from the Canada fires made it impossible to see the Perseid meteor shower.  Possibly this evening.  Picked up Maya within a five minute window and then back home.  
 
Frank, I so worry for your chronic pain. Please continue to pursue other options.  Hugs.
 
Cindy, will post a pic of a flower in brother's yard.  Possibly you or someone else can identify.  Love fragrance, but not over powering. Good to hear Mollie is doing better.  It was a pet fest at brother's place.  Two cats and two dogs, one of which is a problematic pit bull which has to be separated from Cassie who is an aging 17 years.  She slept in lower level with me. Such a loving dog.  Those Japanese Beetles have brutally attacked my birch, lindens and hanging flower baskets.  Don't know if they have soil preferences as I am in hard clay.  Brother Phil has sand and no beetles.  
 
Twirls, good on you.  Make your plans with travel insurance and enjoy. 
 
BeachBilly, hope yesterday went as well as expected.  Was thinking of you.
 
PJ, thanks for the idea on the bee, wasp, hornet and other unsavory characters.  I had to hire a pest control company this year because of issues.  Has been really bad this season in MN.  I will say while visiting brother's home he had to nuke those while trying to invade with their nests.  PJ, looks like a pretty kitty that needs a new home.  Reminds me of Bootsy, my brother Phil's cat, that I was loving on all weekend.  A whopping 6.8 pounds.  He and Monet survived Hurricane Harvey a year ago in Houston when they were fleeing for their lives with the two dogs.  One tough little man and Monet one tough little chica survivors.
 
Bob, good on you to get the job done.  Let us know if you do PJ's recommendation.  Worth a try for sure.  Busy, busy you have been as usual.
 
Bernie, good job chipping away at the outdoor projects in that heat.  Hola, Freddie.
 
SNF, love the rain gauge. Still cracking me up.
 
Badger, hopefully you enjoyed a somewhat day off today.
 
Jamie, dang those fires aren't that far from you.  The air quality must be bad.  Take care.  Edit:  You snuck in on me. Hope all is well girl.
 
Can't even remember all the other posts after missing a couple of days.  Be well, MB.
 
Fun times at Out Post.  Forgot to take food porn pics.

Lake George.

Bass & Sunny.

MB  first glance I thought a columbine but they have different leaves.  It looks like some kind of lily.  Very pretty.  Hope Cindy knows what it is. 
 
Badger... sorry- late check in.  I've been busy doing all kinds of things, and nothing at all. Yesterday, I went shopping and told Mr JJ I'd be back shortly.  I guess I meandered through the stores longer than I thought because I was gone for over 3 hours. LOL
Still managed to spend almost $100. 
 
I painted an old window for my living room.  Ordered a wreath for it on Etsy.. 3-4 weeks before I get it.  I guess she has to make it.  
 
BB.. you were on my mind a lot yesterday.  hope you are doing ok. 
 
Twirls... The way your luck is, it might not be a good idea to plan a trip that far in advance. LOL
 
Jamie are the fires close to you?  
 
SNF  you've had some rain!  We got about an inch last week... calling for showers every day this week.  fingers crossed we get it. We haven't mowed for 2 months., 
 
Bernie.. be careful in the heat. 
 
Crunch hope you can find some relief.  
 
That's all I have.  nothing exciting here. Time for a new work week.
Make it a good one. 
 

When my nights start with margaritas, they end with happiness!

Janjon--did you buy your window from a shop of some kind?  We are having 19 wood windows replaced in my mom's rental building.  We would have 38 sashes.  Don't know if they are worth anything.

Good Morning
Gladiolus Murielae. Otherwise know as hardy gladiola. I have tried it in the past, but it is only hardy to zone 6b. Since that one is near a foundation, it probably collects heat from said foundation. It has to be planted deeply with mulch; it is native to Africa. It is a bulb plant, so I suppose it could be dug up in the fall and replanted in the spring, just like regular gladiolas. I just don't want to bother with stuff I have to dig up in the fall anymore. Pretty, tho, isn't it?
 
Another Moanday. Will be starting the laundry soon. Probably have Emma following me around up and down the stairs. She wears me out. This dog is SO high energy. She gets seizures from time to time, and is on a twice daily barbiturate. I hate to think what she would be like if she wasn't on meds. Bouncing off the walls, probably. 
 
JJ, glad you made your weekend post, was beginning to worry about you.
Jamie, special prayer in church yesterday for the Ca wildfires.
Hazy, here, too from the Canada fires.
Time to get to work, have a wonderful day
Cindy

Good Morning Cats & Dogs, it's Moanday.
 
Thanks for the pix, MB, looks like a fun weekend.
 
JJ, I really look forward to your weekend posts.
 
Frank, most of the windows that I see being repurposed for interior decoration are French style windows.
I had an Uncle who was in law enforcement who said the best home defense weapon is a 12 gauge loaded with birdshot. Puts a big hole in the bad guy, but the pellets won't go thru a wall and harm a neighbor like a bullet could.
 
SNF, that is quite the rain gauge!
 
Another hot one today, but this morning I will be working at a place on the shore of Lake Superior, should be a bit cooler there.

Badger--Thanks for the advice on the shotgun.  I still want a pistol for goofing around at the farm.  I know with the shotgun I'd  have a better  chance taking someone out. That's good to know about the birdshot as I hate painting

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Sunny skies this AM with a chance of showers later today. The current temp is 75F at 7:12 with an expected high of 85 degrees.
 
  Yesterday I cleaned off the screened porch then took the chairs outside and washed them clean. After the porch was cleared I mixed a one cup to one gallon ratio of clorox/water in my pump sprayer. This mixture was sprayed on the moldy spots and left to stand for 10 minutes. Some heavier spots required a light scrubbing with a stiff brush on a 5' pole. Then rinsed everything with the garden hose. The end result looked very nice, although a lot slower than using a pressure sprayer. I would have used the guy that cleaned my house last year but couldn't reach him. I'll have to search for a new person to do the entire house, as that involves using a ladder to clean the upper level and roofing peaks. I don't like ladders.
 
  Today will be a trip to Lowe's to pick up a wall clock that I ordered on-line. Someone one knocked the big clock off the wall yesterday. It was located next to the door that leads into the screened porch.
I used a 'little' too much force and slung the door into the clock. Crash. Boom. Broken glass. Busted clock. Dent in wood floor. Insert bad words here. New one is 1/2 the size & I will mount with a screw anchored into a stud.
 
 Cute kitty, PJ.  Me thinks she has 'found' a good home. Oh, I think those hanging bags would scare me as well. Hee,hee.
 
  Holly, might be tough to find a dependable house cleaner with no kids. Most teens these days don't want to work and they are usually not dependable either.  I would ask a few of your friends for a recommendation.  Best of luck.
 
 Pam, I laughed when I saw your 'rain gauge'. I hope there was no flooding in your area.
 
 Cindy, I forgot to ask you. Where are you and Chris looking to move to ?  I know you love the country
and probably don't want to get further away from family.
 
  Hi Jamie. I had to snicker a little when you said 18 days was a long time on a cruise ship. When I was "cruising" in the US Navy, 18 days was considered a short time.  I bet Holly's trip only has 1-2 days of actual sea time before stopping in port. I have decided to wait for some cooler weather before trimming those bushes.  
 
 MB, yummy, a brat fest & corn. Do they soak their corn in salt water the day before cooking ? Thanks for your pictures. Me thinks you would need 20 or so of those sun fish for a decent fish fry. hee,hee
Good 'down time' fishing, though. Sounds like you enjoyed your trip. Now get out there and cut the darn grass ! Ha ! Freddie says meow back at ya.
 
 Hi jj. Good to see ya posting. Yes, I am watching my "sun time" very carefully. I have to, as my fair skin doesn't like the sun. You haven't mentioned any more remodel projects recently...Mr jj burned out on them ? hee,hee.
 
  Cindy, so you have to give Emma "doggie downers".  Does she sleep a lot ?  I don't like to dig up bulbs either. I usually buy 60W and 100W from Lowe's or Home Depot, ha,ha,ha.
 
  Badger, your friend gave good advise.
 
 No mas coffee and I need to scoot.
 
See y'all later,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

The Perseid Meteor shower, Last good chance tonight. Here are some pictures captured by some "better than me" photographers:
http://earthsky.org/todays-image/photos-perseid-meteor-shower-2018?utm_source=EarthSky+News&utm_campaign=7d3f4ffe77-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_02_02_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c643945d79-7d3f4ffe77-394820709

Essentially, the meteor shower is caused by the remnants of a comet passing thru our solar system, this is the debris left over from it's tail. The earth travels thru the debris trail and this is what happens. 
It's cloudy up in these parts this year, so phooey!!! Last couple years we have seen some good shows. Just the two of us, laying on a mattress on the walkway (we're out in the country, not much light pollution). Nice show if you can get it. You don't have to be awake at the optimal hour of 4 AM or whatever. We go out about 9 PM and see plenty! But not this year.....



Lovin life,
Bob

Morning all
I did nothing yesterday except go out for a light meal with Ann and watch old movies on TV.  Still need to vacuum the fur floors.  Pearl managed to sneak in a log while I am typing this and I see a pile of Beaver shavings.
 
Still working on the stupid Trust for when I die.  Meanwhile I'm doing a pretty good job of spending it.
 
Yes, 18 days is a long time but Bernie is correct in that the only days we aren't in port is going between Tahiti and Figi.  And it includes a hotel overnight in Sydney.
I'd like to find someone to share a suite because it saves $5000.  I'm not particularly comfortable being so far away and not having anyone know if I disappeared.  I might even pay 1/2 their fare just to have the company.  Any volunteers?
 
Crazy times when west coast is burning and the east coast is flooding.  I'm glad to be in the middle just being broasted...broiled and steamed while roasting.  We are supposed to start a rain and cool down period.  I think I may stay put with this home and wait for global warming so I can have the pool open year around.
 
Frank and Crunch, I would give a great chiropractor some time to work on your condition.  I'm a firm believer.  Chiropractic makes sense if you understand it.  I've been going off and on since I was about 19.  It made a huge difference in my situation over the years.  Without the treatment when I was young, I probably would not be walking now.  Scoliosis.  I graduated HS with a cane.
 
MB, I'm glad you had a good day.
 
I had a couple reports that Kat is doing better.  I missed her call yesterday but going to call her shortly.

Good morning BCers!
Hazy skies here as well.  High temp of 91F expected. 
Did the laundry and most of ironing yesterday.  SJ will be traveling to Brainerd, MN this
coming weekend.  Gotta stay ahead of the ironing so as not to trap myself into a marathon
of ironing on Thursday night.  
SJ is going to try to find the kitten a home.  Doesn't want me to keep her. 
 
MB,  Glad you had fun with your family.  Nice pics of the fish you caught.
 
BeachBilly and Kat,  holding you both close to my heart.  Hugs
 
Everyone have a great day!

That is an awfully cute cat PJ, but if SJ finds her a good home I guess "all's well that ends well".
 
Tomas talked to Kat for me yesterday.  Between dad and other stuff going on I just couldn't manage another call.
 
We actually have had 3 or 4 days now with off and on rain.  Much needed. and a nice cool down.  Then I realize we will only have "pool time" for another month and I don't want pool and sandal time to end.
 
Looks like a very fun weekend MB.  Loved the pics.
 
Ouch on the clock Bernie.
 
Cruise sounds great Twirley, but I have to work.  That scoliosis sounds terrible.
 
Hope those fires are not too close to you Jamie.
 
Great rain gauge SNF.
 
Badger and Bob - we priced doggie doors this last weekend.  At Lowe's the door is $574.00 and installation and supplies about $350.00.  We talked to a guy who has a business who comes out and cuts through the wall and brick veneer and it was about $750.00 for him.  This just seems outrageously expensive to me.  Our existing door to the back has glass almost all the way to the bottom so it's a no go.

MB, nice pictures, that sure is a pretty lake, bratwurst feast sounds SO good.
 
Twirls, have you tried a cleaning service if there are any in your area? I have been using Merry Maids since 2006 and been pretty happy with them for the most part, they provide all supplies and usually send a 2 person team.
 
Cindy, hope Emma does not wear you out too much and thank you so much for your prayer for the firefighters.
 
Thanks to my other LG family for the good thoughts, here is a map of the Holy fire, it is not near me. Find the town called Long Beach, I am about 7-10 miles to the left of it, the large nearby peninsula is Palos Verdes peninsula. Saw a clip of the arsonist appearing in court on TV, the guy has serious mental problems and his eyes reminded me of pictures of Charles Manson.

Frank  I got my window from my Dad's barn.   
You can most definitely sell yours.  They usually go for $10-$20 I think..  people love to use them in decorating. Sometimes they paint them and sometimes they just leave them the way they are.   If you are on Facebook, check out the local market place.  I bet you'll find some listed on there and that will give you a great idea on a price. If you are the creative type, go on pinterest and you'll see all kinds of ideas. 
This is what I did. It was just brown wood and I painted with 3 different colors. I'll hang it on the wall with a coastal beachy looking wreath., 


When my nights start with margaritas, they end with happiness!

Crunch I have done doggie doors both ways, in a door, and in a wall. Owner preference, I suppose. With a full glass door, that means the wall. If you have storm doors, common in our area... well, it doesn't work quite so well thru the door. The advantage of thru the wall is that if for some reason you have to replace a door, the doggie door stays in place. And you can keep your full glass door. 

You have to realize cutting thru brick veneer, then thru stud walls and insulation, avoiding electrical wires, etc... and all the tools involved, and finishing up the door so it is a finished product, looking good and working well..... And of course, he wants to make a profit. I always like to get three bids, just so I know if I am paying the going price. Sometimes, you find a lower bid that is not so low that you question if they'll do a good job, other times it is just too low. Cutting thru the brick is probably what is driving this cost. Diamond blades, water, water containment and clean up, etc... I know it only took me a couple hours for a thru the wall unit in a clapboard wall, but I was already there with my tools and all set up, not a special trip. 

Twirley! "Meanwhile I'm doing a pretty good job of spending it." That's the way to handle it!!! Any chance you have a good guess on your expiration date and can aim to have a zero balance on that date??? LOL!

Bernie, welcome to my world!!! When the original installation doesn't suffice, the follow up install will stand long after the house rots down!!!

Be well all. Hugs to Kat!

Lovin life,
Bob
