Good Morning Clubbers, it's Saturday.
 
A little too much fun with Boat Drinx last night, now I'm running late.

Wag more....bark less.

Good Morning
Slept later than usual. And then internet (router) had to be rebooted again. Dogs are fed and frisking outdoors. Have I mentioned how much I love Invisible Fence?
 
Still working on getting rid of excess clippings; spent most of the day yesterday at it. Emptied lawn sweeper about 9 or ten times. That's a lot of clippings!
 
61 now, going into upper 80s. Yesterday we had a 20% chance for hit or miss showers for today. Now it is up to 50%, With warnings of cloud to ground lightning strikes. I suppose we need the rain; but now that most of the mud has dried up I hope we don't get any deluges.
 
MB, did the arborist say anything about "Maple Decline"? In my experience, maples that color and drop before any others are on their way out. There was one on the church property about 4 years ago that colored up beautifully in late August. The Pastor commented on how pretty it was and I agreed but told him it would probably be dead in the next year or 2. He sputtered a bit like how could I know that...tree was cut down 2 years ago dead as a doornail. It wasn't even a large maple...maybe 2ft diameter at most. They don't really know what causes it.  Hence the rather vague "maple decline". Perhaps something in the soil, 'cuz they will tell you not to try another maple in the same area. Love/hate is a good description...but when I'm mowing, I DEFINITLY love the shady areas!
 
Jamie, you "sound" like you're doing better. Keep it up!
Twirls, I agree with MB. Have an electrician check it out. Could be house has settled some (you did get a copious amount  of rain!) and maybe the ceiling fan needs some leveling. (said the woman without a level floor in the entire house)
 
Fun times talking with P&B last night!
Y'all have a great day
Cindy

Good morning people, how is today for you? I awoke well rested and itching to do something. I'm considering cleaning up one of our local hiking trails. It's located on a logger's land, who let's us keep a trail to a cliff overlook. They have logged right up to the trail and some tree branches are scattered all over the place there. Some of the logging doesn't look good, but they have opened up some views for us. And... after all, it is their land. 

My garden is giving me zucchini, pod peas and string beans. I'm freezing the string beans for later, eating as many of the pod peas and zucchini as I can. I love them fresh! Only fresh. The string beans are good when frozen then steamed. 

MB, Looks like the kitty cat is staying nearer home, though we are hopeful of seeing her again, such a nice kitty. 

Bernie, I am glad to see you are able to get out on the boat and enjoy the Summer!

SoSo, my brother's wife works at LL Bean, and they have a health promotion. Keeps employees healthier and helps reduce insurance rates, as their are less claims. It has always amazed me how much people will pay for drugs when (free) exercise will oftentimes solve the problem. They provide a fit bit for all employees and spouses. It is monitored and upon reaching certain benchmarks, there are bonuses for employees. My brother and his wife just had $500.00 deposited into their HSA after reaching one benchmark! He also is in the top 20 for activity minutes regularly, sometimes the top 5. LL Bean is a rather large company. Healthy, active people are better and happier workers. 

Badger, I feel for you on the owner changing their mind on colors. They simply have no idea how much it screws up schedules, nor how much it costs. For folks not in construction, here is what happens. You set up staging as the materials are delivered. You expect to be a couple days doing this small job. In and out. Oh, I want this special order color, how much more. It takes one week for that product to arrive here. No problem, I'll wait and pay extra for the special order. There is the cost of returning the material, the extra handling as it is loaded up and taken away while the new stuff has to be delivered and handled. But, now you need to go elsewhere, and you need the staging at the other job, so you pull down the staging and go do the other job. When you finish that job, two weeks later, you come back, set the staging up again and do the job, but your profit margin has taken a hit, because you only figured to set the staging once. You have extra work. Owner doesn't understand why you didn't just leave the staging set up, tying up your equipment. As a contractor, you want to charge for all the extra work, but you also don't want the customer telling everyone that this job cost 7K when a similar job a block away only cost 5K, so sometimes you suck it up a bit and not charge for every added cost but only some, and you want to be a good guy.... The extra cost had nothing to do with the contractor, it had to do with the customer changing his mind and adding cost to the job. 

I had one customer who constantly changed his mind. He paid by the hour,so we just sorta grinned and bear-ed it. He was complaining of how much this project was costing, but fortunately, it was a large enough project that it could absorb some costs. I tried telling him the cost differences of us constantly reworking "everything" after it had already been built once. Finally, I tracked one change. I knew it would be a big one, so of course, I documented the added costs. It cost about $200.00 a day to design up what he wanted and make up a materials list. We were 2 weeks in, and the costs for design and procuring a materials list were now $2,000.00. He constantly had the plans redrawn, which meant revising the materials list, etc... Finally we are reaching the end of design, he's frustrated. I ask if he wants an additional room in this corner of the building, it'd be real simple to add and will cost peanuts. He says, no more planning, let's just build it. Okay, I prefer building to CAD anyways!

Wouldn't you know it, he changed his mind. Original design required some special order lumber, no problem. Each piece cost $75.00. This room he didn't want, but now wants, requires the cutting in half a dozen of these $75.00 pieces, into two pieces that could have been bought for about $12.00 each. There is $600.00 in wasted material right there, as well as our labor rebuilding. Total cost of the rework was on the order of $6,000.00. This did not include the wall building and windows, because if they were figured in the job to begin with, we would have budgeted for that anyways. It was $6,000.00 all wasted materials and extra work, because he couldn't make up his mind...... But he paid for all of it. I documented it and presented it all to him. 

Next job, he was much more careful with the pre-planning. 

Hey, I'm gonna run, have a great day folks. 

Lovin life,
Bob

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Thunderstorms moving through the area and more on the way further South and following the coastline. Forecast is for mostly cloudy this afternoon. Current temp is 74F at 7:24 with a high of 80 degrees. 
 
  Yesterday I made a stop at the bank and then had lunch at Fibber's; hit the grocery store on the way home for a couple of items I missed on Wednesday.
 
  Today not much on my plate except dropping off a couple of small bags of recycle at the satellite station.
 
  Hi Jamie. Glad you are feeling better. Please take care of yourself and get your strength back.
 
  MB, tree removal can be pretty darn expensive, especially when hiring a tree service company. Does your brother have a chain saw ? If no, maybe you can rent one for him for a few hours to help you out. Then you can advertise in Craig's List or similar place for "free firewood".  
 
  Been goofing off.  Hi Badger and Hi Cindy. Have fun out on that trail, Bob.
 
See everyone later.
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Morning all
 
MB, I hear you about the relationship with trees!  Exactly why I had most of mine taken OUT!  One was a huge maple that was 13' in circumference at the end of the pool.  I wondered why Ann didn't have it taken out when they built the pool so I asked her.  She said that the pool builder didn't tell her that it would become a problem.  Of course it wasn't as big then.  I asked the pool builder why he didn't tell her to take it out back then and he claims he did but she wouldn't.  I believe him because Ann doesn't have good memory.  LOL but true.  Eventually the tree got HUGE and started causing problems with too much shade on the pool.  Green water every time it rained.  Tree debris in the water...  It was very pricey to take it down but it had to go.  There were also 2 dead and 2 more dying trees I had to take  out.  Proper planning and tree maintenance is very necessary for the health of the property.  Other neighbors will be in for a shock when they finally have to address the tree problem in this old neighborhood.  There are several that need attention and are old.  Sorry about my tree rant...
 
Jamie, glad to hear you are feeling better!
 
Bob, interesting about that boulder!  I like your theory!
 
Last night singles meet up was not great in 1 way but worked out for the best, probably.  I arrived early and went to sit on the patio and wait.  I ordered wine and watched the single folks arrive and go in for a bit and then I went in.  I had not been added to the list to attend even though I had sent a reply to the organizer.  I had been "inactivated" due to missing functions for so long and I had to "reenlist" which I had done, but failed to push the RSVP button, not knowing I had to notify them again!  SO I was NOT ALLOWED to even sit with them???  Which actually was fine when I checked out the attendees!  It was obvious that I didn't have much in common with them.  Most were 70-80 yoa.  The younger ones were very frumpy looking women that were younger than they made themselves look.   Nothing wrong with that.   I had my hair in a french twist and a skirt that was knee length, but some of the women narrowed their eyes (maybe they were squinting?) and looked at me like I was a harlot! A couple of the men grinned and looked at me like "fresh meat".   I'm sure most were lovely people and I'm not a snob but I could tell we didn't have much in common.  You could tell that NONE of them would even think of travelling to Mexico for beach activities!   I had hopes of meeting people to travel with, since many mentioned travel as an interest, I'm assuming they meant "travel" as going on a bus tour to a nearby casino.  I know not to judge a book by it's cover but...  I did return later, after my dinner, and politely say Hello and Goodbye.   
 
Chris is vacuuming so I need to get moving.  My self invited friends are returning from vacation and texted their ETA as 3:30.  I wondered since they were going to be that early, why didn't they drive 3 more hours and be at HOME?  So I'll be serving dinner for 2 semi vegetarians and a 4 year old!   I'll do what I can to please them and GRIN A LOT!

Good morning BCers!
Sunny with a possibility of T-storms later.  
Slept in... was pooped out last night.  Put in a full day yesterday.
SJ came home early from work.  Couldn't use his right hand.  From the looks of it...
knew he was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.  Looked up how to treat it on google.
Gave him ibuprofen and ice bag as suggested.  He said it is better this morning. 
SC came home around 9 p.m.   She showed him some exercises to do with his hand. 
SC and I have a hair appointment at noon.  Still, need to get dressed and take some homemade sweet bread
to my brother and SIL.   As a thank you for keeping the pets while we were gone. 
Hope everyone has a beautiful day!

Good evening.  84 and party cloudy.  Headed out at 9 to start the yard work as it was predicted to be 88 with ramp up on humidly.  Pretty much done with everything by 1 p.m.  Came inside to cool off and have some yogurt with fresh blue berries.  That was delightful and then headed for the shower.  Been chilling since in the A/C and watching some DVR movies.  
 
Cindy, you nailed it on that maple tree and love/hate relationship  Arborist  said It was not going to make it.  Should not be changing colors and asked again about the leaning.  We could see some strange changes at base of tree.  He's real concerned and says the tree is diseased at the root system or the soil conditions.
 
Twirls, so get it with the trees.  Not been an issue until 25-30 years later.   
 
Bob, yeah homeowners probably don't get the last minute changes and bottom line to contractor.  I see life both ways as I don't always understand the next moves in construction/improvements which makes me cra-cra.   That's not my jam and full disclosure up front with the person doing the job is totally welcome.  It's all good about kitty kat.  Thinking she will be back to give thanks for your affection.  That's great news about your family member's health improvement.  
 
Badger, hope you can enjoy part of your weekend.   
 
Bernie, hoping you are feeling better.  Almost family time.  That will put a huge smile on your face.
 
Jamie, keep checking in so we know you are on the mend.
 
Bob, definitely harder to take if off then put it on.  Exercise and moving is the key to an extended life.
 
Sama, MB.

Good Morning Frisky Dogs, it's Sunday.
 
Not much time again this morning, the fiasco with the soffit/fascia just keeps getting better, I stopped at my local lumber yard yesterday to see why it hadn't been delivered yet and they could not find my order in their system. The person responsible for placing the order is blaming someone else, but I am sure he screwed up. Now the material won't be here until Tuesday. Totally messing up my schedule. Oh well, the homeowner wants me to completely wire the new garage and also do some interior work on his house, so I'll tackle that today.
 
Hi to all, hope you're having a great weekend!

Wag more....bark less.

Good Morning 
Gosh, Paul. Not what you needed. What a PITA.
 
Running late myself, another several hours on the mower yesterday and a cool night...I'm sleeping longer. Couple of brief afternoon showers curtailed the mowing, then an evening Tstorm that lasted a bit longer. Checked the rain gauge; just shy of half an inch. Good for the garden, and not a gully washer. We are getting some produce now, lots of cukes, some of the small variety tomatoes (planted a new one this year, can't remember the name, but it is about the size of a golf ball and brownish...I remember chocolate was in the name.) Will be "taste testing" that one today. Chris has also been harvesting jalapenos (not a fan, myself) and making himself Poppers.
 
Sophie continues to be a brat. She dug up a dozen or so Hyacinth bulbs I had in a small bed close to the house. GRRR. Chewed them up pretty thoroughly, too.
 
I better run and start getting ready for church, everyone have a wonderful day!
Cindy

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
  Today will be mostly sunny. Current temp 74F at 7:29 and the beach high will be 86 degrees. Looks like the extended forecast from grandpa will be good for the Colorado gang's Tuesday visit. 
 
  Sadness from events in El Paso and Dayton. Prayers to all that are suffering in those areas.
 
  Yesterday I bought two smaller beach chairs for Jack and Sam.  They will double as beach and deck chairs on the screened porch. I think they will love them.
 
  Today I will make a run to Walmart for some over the counter meds. The sores from the Shingles are almost gone; some pain from the nerve endings inside my body is still present but manageable. Debby will be up here around noon to bring back the blow-up bed she had borrowed from me. I'll treat her to lunch if she has time.
 
  MB, yes, I'm getting excited to see Meredith and her gang. This will be quite the adventure for the boys, as it is their 1st nonstop flight across the country; almost 1500 air miles. Couple that with their 1st trip to a beach. Way cool.
 
  Sheesh Badger, normally a garage wouldn't be that bad of a job for you, si ?  At least the added wiring will keep you busy and help with extra $$, although loss time is loss dollars as well. Bummer.  Chin up, buddy.
 
  Cindy, never ending battle on the lawn cutting, right ?  I remember you use a John Deere mower but can't remember the size of the deck ?  That Sophie is a hand full. Perhaps you can distract her somewhat with a 2"' round piece of a tree limb from a hardwood like oak or similar.  Then that would be her outside chew toy,
as long as she doesn't start eating the wood.
 
  Coffee all done.
See y'all and have a good day.
Bernie

Good morning BCers!
Cloudy and humid here.  A High temp of 86F expected.
Lots of thunder late yesterday.  Not one drop of rain for us. 
Hoping it will rain today.  
SC and I ran errands and had our hair cut yesterday.
Her cousin Anna just graduated from cosmetology school.  We went to the salon where she is working now.  
Anna is getting married soon in Hawaii.  Missed her wedding shower due to our trip to Chicago. 
Took the wedding gifts with us so we could give them to her.  Met the soon to be inlaws.   
Mom, sister and 6-month-old grandson.  Very nice people. 
SJ has something wrong with this right hand and can't use it.  Doesn't hurt but numb and tingling.
Can't splay his fingers.  No strength in it at all.  Suspect carpal tunnel syndrome.  
Icing it and taking ibuprofen.  SC had a hand brace here so he is wearing that. 
Promised to go to the doctor tomorrow.     
The washing machine is cranking and the dryer dinged.  Time to get at folding clothes.
Wishing everyone a great day!  Hugs

PJ, it does sound like carpal tunnel. Tell him it's an easy surgery; they just release the band that goes around all those nerves that make your hand work. Once that pressure is off and you do your PT, the hand works again. (until the arthritis sets in like it did to me.)

Mornin BCRs its going to be a hot one here, Fri we had lots of rain over 1" in 2 hrs so the forests are ready for the campers that arrived here on mass for the long weekend.  Going to hit the road in a bit to visit family made a Greek salad and going to sous vide corn on the cob.  Last Amazon Prime day my kitchen decided it needed a sous vide, in the process of testing different foods in it. Anyone here have one?
 
Those poppers sounds good, we have a well populated jalapeno plant, thanks for the idea C&C.  Dang on Sophie digging your bulbs, the puppy trials and tribs.
 
BeBe saw you are going to get some weather heading up your way, hang in there. 
 
UHK that is great incentive for employees to keep healthy.  
 
Poopoo on the order screw up Badge, can they expedite? 
 
PJ sorry to hear about SJ hand, certainly hope no surgery is required  -good luck at the Docs.
 
Jamie, so glad you are mending -bet you are feeling better today.
 
Cell phone fried while charging it at night - right at the pin connection at the phone, kinda shorted and melted both the cord and cell.  Navigating through the info to get another phone is daunting.  
 
 
 
 
Make it a gooder all!

PJ, really sorry to hear about SJ's hand, hopefully he can see the Dr. if it is carpal tunnel. Good news on the haircuts for you and SC. My own hair is sadly way overdue for a cut. Hope to get in this week.
 
SoSo, corn sounds so good, but had to look up what was a sous vide, new one on me. Used to steam the corn in the microwave in a Corningware dish with a little melted butter and water covered with Saran but that would not be practical for a large group.
 
Badger, sorry for the screwup on your material order but good that you can work on the garage so your time is not wasted.
 
Bernie bet you are looking forward to seeing Jack and Sam and Meredith in a few days, am sure they will enjoy the beach and the weather sounds perfect. Is this their first flight? The airlines used to have these little pilot wing pins they would give out sometimes. Might be worth checking into (without telling them of course).
 
Sorry about your tree, MB.
 
Sadly I still have a touch of illness, felt good when I got up but 40 minutes later the chills returned. Just took my third Tylenol. Anyone know how many you can safely take? 325mg.
My neighbor's girlfriend is here for a few days and helping me with laundry and will go to local market shortly and will ask her to get me some Gatorade. Don't think I have ever had it, but might help with retaining fluids (drinking lots of water). She is a big help when she is around and can always use a few extra dollars I pay her for running various errands.
Good news is the weather is nice and sunny and my other neighbor brought me a half dozen cookies.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, all.
 
PS - Holly sorry that CIty Singles did not work out for you.

Good evening.  86 and partly cloudy.  Been a reflective day for me with all of the shootings that last couple of days.  I feel great sadness and numb that this is what our current environment has come to.  So much hatred.  Felt great to go to church this morning.  Bought a couple of new comforter sets the other day at Home Goods.  Got the more casual one out today.  Love the muted soft color scheme, but will need to buy a bed skirt.  The other comforter set, more has a bed skirt and reversible comforter, like the one I currently have, with two zippered shams with the two patterns in comforter.  Off to TJ  again and bought a cute bronze leaf napkin holder and 14" metal plant pot holder for front entryway to put the old milk can/tractor seat thing on.  Currently have a rubber mat cut to size so there is no rusting residue on the concrete.  Hopefully this works well with better entry appeal.
 
Bernie, I think those two kiddos will be over the moon with the beach chairs, boat ride and sand/ocean.  What a memorable trip this will be for all of you.  Glad to hear the shingle thing is on its way out.  As far as the trees, there is no way I am asking brother(s) for help.  These are 25-30 year old trees by my split rail fence line and the infected ash borer tree cannot be sold as fire wood here.  Totally illegal.   I'll stick with the professionals, but thanks.
 
Badger, sounds like some nasty weather headed your way this evening.  Take care.
 
SoSo, bought another beach floatie the other day on clearance.  Can't wait to go south and chill after all these projects.  What does "have a gooder" mean?    Assuming a good day/evening???   Edit:  What the heck on your phone?  Dang.
 
Jamie, wow I am sorry to hear your are not 100%.  So glad you have a nice neighbor that can look after you and lend some assistance.  Humanity at its best.  Feel better.
 
Bob, meant to comment earlier about LLB and their incentives to keep employees healthy and happy.  My past employer offered many incentives as well to promote healthy choices.  
 
PJ, nice to have SC around.  I have the orthopedic wristbands.  They do help as I thought I had carpal tunnel from all of my years on a keyboard.  Luckily I did not have to have surgery.  Hope your husband's doc appointment goes well tomorrow and gets relief.
 
Hola, Beach Billy, Susy Q, SNF, Bosco, Sir Mapes and others.  Make it a beautiful evening all.  MB

Good Morning Clubbers, it's Moanday.
 
PJ, sure hope SJ finds out what is wrong, let us know how it goes please?
 
Bernie, yes, garages are pretty easy to build, but this owner has been a bit of a PITA.
 
Jamie, glad your friend is helping you out.
 
SoSo, that phone melting is a little scary, I know a lady whose home burned down because of her laptop starting on fire.
 
Mb, no storms at all last night, but maybe this evening, we really could use the rain.
 
Gotta run.

Good Morning
I'd say the phone melting is a LOT scary!
 
Hot and humid day yesterday, had to wear a bandanna around my forehead to keep the sweat from running into my eyes. Finally got the lawn cleaned of clippings, though, and made good progress on weeds. Mowing will begin again soon, though. We have a 70% chance for rain/Tstorms this evening. Was a little weird, I was doing dinner prep last night and turned on the local news on my small kitchen TV. They are out of Milwaukee, but have webcams set up in various towns around SE Wi. Weather gal panned to West Bend and it was POURING! Buckets. I set my knife down and went out the front door and looked east. Sure 'nough, black clouds and little flickers of lightning. Nada here.
 
Jamie, glad you have some assistance from the neighbor. Feel better soon! Re: the gatorade, it always made me gag. I thought it was about the worst thing when it was time for the dreaded colonoscopy. But this last time they had a new flavor called "cherry frost" (I think) and I liked it...actually pleasant to drink. Just a suggestion...
 
MB, re: the bed skirt. Our current one didn't come with a bed skirt. Looked around locally...nada. Lightbulb turned on in the brain and I checked Wayfair, ding, ding ding! They have basic bed skirts in LOTS of colors. Just in case you don't find one elsewhere.
 
I'd better go get started on the laundry so I can continue my outdoor work sometime today. Have a wonderful day!
Cindy

Yesterday was a work day. I rotated my tires, lubed up all the door hinges and garage door hinges, checked and filled all the fluids, tire pressure, etc. Then mowed and weed whacked. I even did my neighbor's hay field. I do it once a year, to keep the trees from growing in his leach field. He bought it, intending to move here, but life happened. It was mid 70's and I got ride around on my mower... Then went over to friend's house, since it was cooler (her house has no AC) and installed a couple ceiling fans for her. 

Then we realized, we have blueberries, pod peas, peppers, zucchini and string beans to pick! I did up a montage of all the veggies and a couple of sausages chopped up with fresh garlic. Nothing like fresh from the garden!

Not sure what today holds in store. It looks nice out. Maybe go visit the grandkids... Not sure, seems we have to go that way today. But they might be visiting other relatives. Gotta send out messages....

SoSo, that phone looks scary, Gonna make sure phone charging is done only on hard surfaces, no papers underneath, etc... Good warning!

Have a great day all!

Lovin life,
Bob

Howdy and good morning everyone.
 
 Bright sunny skies this AM along the coast with a high of 84 degrees. Current temp 73F at 7:39. The normal chance of t-storms in the evening hours.
 
  Yesterday Debby arrive about 12:30 with my blow-up bed. Took her to lunch at The Dog House. We chatted some when we got back to my house and the she had to get back to South Carolina. She dumped her friend Charlie. Found out he had a wife back in Ohio. She said now she will pay to check out someone before she dates them on "Been Verified". 
 
 Made my run to Walmart after Debby left around 3 PM. It wasn't too crowded at all so I was able to find what I needed and get in and out in about 15 minutes. Nice for a change.
 
  I'm ready for John,Meredith,Jack,Sam to arrive tomorrow afternoon, so nothing I need to do today.
 
  Bad news on your cell phone, SoSo. You are lucky it didn't start a fire. How did the corn turn out in the Sous Vide cooker ?
 
  Hi Jamie. Yes, I'm pretty excited to see everyone. No, this is not the kids first flight but it will be their longest one from Denver to Myrtle Beach nonstop. Hoping you can shake your 'bug' soon.
 
  MB, that tree removal will be big bucks for sure. I bet it will be $ 4,000 +/- but I understand about you wanting to use a professional tree service.  
 
  Hi Badger, Cindy, and Crunch.
 
See y'all later,
Bernie

Weekend at Bernie's

Good morning BCers!
Sunny and beautiful outside this morning.  Headed for temps in 90s this afternoon.
Received a pretty good downpour of rain late yesterday.  We did need it.  
Got up early in case SJ needed help getting dressed.  Right hand still limp as a dishrag.
He was going straight to the doctor.  Doubt he goes to work today.  
Been a busy couple of weeks for me.  Missed a lot of naps.  I'm taking today off.  Ha! Ha!   
Everyone have a wonderful day!  Hugs

Morning all
Just realized that I didn't post yesterday.
 
SoSo, very scary.  
 
Bernie, I hope you and the family will have a super wonderful visit.
 
MB, good decision to stick with professionals.  No time for the "good ole boy" approach.  My large tree was right next to the 6' wood fence and they didn't damage it. 
 
Bad weather up north?  Must have missed that. 
 
I hate the news these days.  What is happening in our world?  Unthinkable that so many sickos are running around with automatic weapons!!  I understand why they don't ban them, politics and the mighty dollar, but I don't understand how they cannot ban them with all that is going on!  NO ONE needs them for anything except police and military.  Is that what scares everyone?  That OFFICIAL people will have them and some are afraid of a military take over?  And the guy that shot his sister in the crowd?  Planned or no?  If they want to die, then do it and leave everyone else out of it!  Or maybe better yet, a compound where all the sickos can stalk and kill each other?  And why do we have so many young people that HATE so much?  I just don't understand and I think I don't want to know.
 
My overnight visiting friends were actually lovely including the 4 year old.  It was probably the best talk that us two women ever had.  I prepared a nice dinner that we all enjoyed.  
 
unfortunately, I ate very little due to my increasing gut problem.  Yesterday I was in pretty severe pain.  Liquid diet day.  I drank lots of fluid and ate chicken noodle soup, mostly broth.  With additional help like several big swigs of mineral oil and some muscle relaxer, etc, it seems to have helped so I might be spared from urgent care today.  
 
Jamie, there is a new drink called Body Armor that is better tasting than gatorade.  It still has all electrolytes and good stuff.  I like it better.
 
We have warm temps and rain in our forecast.  Pool water has cooled to 83 already with the rain we recently had and cooler overnight temps.

Morning all.
 
I admit to reading way more often then I post, and I feel guilty because I enjoy your posts and pictures.
 
Uphill..I commend your effort to manage your health. So many people will not make simple life changes and just want the Dr to fix it with meds. That said, check your BP regularly. They don't call it the silent killer for nothing. Nice hiking!
 
Twirls..maybe your house is haunted because you stopped building, ala winchester house. MB's is not haunted.
 
MB..enjoy the chaos. What else can you do? I'm sure it's going to be beautiful when finished.
 
Badger..keep reminding yourself. Chaos = Pesos to spend at Pescadores. 
 
Jamie..glad you are feeling a little better.  May I suggest some sunshine. 
 
SoSo..good god. you need to find out why that happened so it doesnt happen again. 
 
Frank..I was good until that last picture. Glad you are well enough to post.
 
Gem..nice flower pots!
 
PJ..I hope SJ gets his hand fixed. 
 
We are like used cars! I need an extended warranty.
 
 
Crunch, Sorry about Dad, et al. Look on the bright side. Maybe you are now the sole beneficiary of the will. 
 
All that my mother left us kids is her little house, which is fine by me. My parents lived life and left little on the table.
 
Bernie...enjoy your time with family. Glad that stupid shingles sh__ is subsiding.
 
We are now smack dab in H season, but I am not worrying about it until computer models say we're getting creamed. 
It's a fact of life down here. The news sensationalizes every little tropical blip.
 
Some time in 2020 sounds good to me, Kinich Ahau willing and the creek don't rise. I am hearing from others about high airfares. Not long ago there was beaucoup capacity and fare wars. I wonder if the airlines are reducing the number of flights.
 
Anyone I missed, Hola!

I forgot to add..c&c.. enjoy your gardens!
This is the best time of year. Late summer harvests and cooler nights. 🙂

Morning BCrs
 
We are in the summer upper tough and going to reach 32C ish today (90F).
 
ROTF yes MB gooder is CDN slang... gooder (plural gooders) (nonstandard, humorous, New England slang) Something good; a good one; goodie. You're a gooder, for taking care of your mom. A parallel construction to oner, a nominalization of one, to mean "an outstanding person or thing".   
 
Below are the new hallway seeded glass lamps we added, they are very similar to our island pendants.
 






Jamie yes we golf, its a very pretty course right here at the lake and a decent restaurant.  My back has been out this year so not much going on for me, DH goes weekly with the group from our community.  Sorry to hear you are still feeling ill, good to know you are trying to keep hydrated, try some coconut water and fresh squeezed juice (mix together).  And when you get better add vodka jeje.
 
Hope you had a relaxing weekend Crunchie, they have been working you to the bone.
 
BeBe have a fabulous time with the kids, how exciting.  Know the feeling, can't wait until our kids come out and camp for a week in a few weeks. Corn was awesome and soooosoooo sweet in the sous vide and simple to use.  Restaurants have been using this cooking method for ever.
 
PJ sounds like both you and SJ are going to take a few days off.  Hoping all goes well at the Doc's for SJ today.
 
Twirls the shootings are so depressing.  Guess who is spewing hatred and blaming mental health issues, your CINC...Karma is coming.  My deepest sympathy for all the families, very sad.  Have you tried probiotics for your tummy?
 
UHK your fresh garden salad sounds nommy! Love fresh garden salad.
 
Must be disrupting to have the media always up play the weather Bosco.  What are your go to sites to watch, wind guru?
 
JJ you must be out golfing today :)
 
Hola Gem, Nipper, Suzy, Barata, Tejas, Badger
 
Zoey had a great time yesterday playing with our sons dog Quila, was her first time off leash in their fence yard.(she is fast)  She also discovered under the deck the little cutie brat, cobwebs and spiders all over her.  Brought my camera, however left the sd card in my PC :( no pix sorry.

 
Make it a gooder.
