Good morning America! How's that?

Sitting in an airport lounge. It's 6.30am and it's pitch black outside. I am off to shaky Christchurch. They have just called my flight so running. Love to you all

Howdy Meg and Dianne! Hope you're doing okay today! My cat Lily has rallied and is as mouthy as her usual self. Alls is well. I think she may have hurt her little toes while in the back yard Saturday. I sure wish she could speak English properly.

Hi everyone- I've missed you!
I've read up on everyone's posts over the last week, and hope everyone's falls/houses/backs/closets/helpers are better. Excuse me not going person-by-person-- I'm find it hard tp be verbose with 1-finger typing
I'm here but have been busy. Finishing up my last 2 work projects (still a lot to do) anticipating my June 15 retirement. (I know I'll still have some clean-up woork after that, but not too much.) And directing my novice gardening partners on getting in my market garden. They mean well and are enthusiastic and helpful, but... slow. Between the May rains/cold, late plantings, and their hens wreaking havoc when they get out, I'm despairing of getting enough to supply our CSA (joint effort with my sister-in-law), let alone the farmers' market. Ah well, gardens surprise me every year. Hope our customers don't mind a late start.
Am also looking on Craigslist for a used scooter, though Roy doesn't know that yet. But hey, I'm not a clothes shopper, so that should count for something, right?
And of course I am enjoying my daughter's puppy when she brings him by!
Hope everyone has a lovely evening. It is gorgeous in Maine today-- finally!
love
Sue

Sue, a CSA gardener! WOW--that's so wonderful. Your spring has been really wet and chilly. A scooter is a very good idea. Roy might be relieved when you get it--I learned to follow my instinct as I lost ground after being too hard headed for too long.

Meg, life is busy, but Hawaii awaits! I'm glad Brian is upbeat--has to be easier.

Marti, very glad kitty is doing lots better.

Diane, want you to have no more computer problems. Miss you.

Aly, stay safe!

Kimberly, you sound as though you need more time alone with your computer--and us!

Avril, have a good night--both you and mum.

Liz, thinking of you, smile.

Helen, hope your house was showing off all the primping it's received for today. "Sold" is the word we'd like to hear...

Hi Girls,
thought that i would post to lt you know i am still here

got the earth works for the new veranda happening today, in the rain so the ground will be a mess when they finish.
The varanda will go up in a couple of weeks or so, along with a new carport.

total area under roof will be app. 110 square meters, 130 square yards, with about 1/2 decked. should be nice in the summer.


I hope you are all well


cheers
Peter

Hi all,

Everyone is so busy! Summer weather is here, but the kids are still in school until the 23rd of June... They're ready to get out now! But it gives me a couple of weeks of my private mornings before it happens.

Sue, don't buy a scooter until you talk to compassionate care als! You can email or call, and maybe even arrange to meet when you're in Boston next time. Which, by the way, I'll be at Mass General on Thursday morning. PM me if you need the phone or website, but they're online. They not only gave me a scooter that looks brand new (see my avatar), but also had ramps sent to me, free of charge! He basically told me not to buy anything until I talked to him about what they have in their warehouse.

I have a few plants that I tried to save inside over the winter, but most of them didn't make it... but I don't want to plant the hydrangea 'cause I want to plant it at my next house... which doesn't look like that's going to happen soon. It drives me crazy when the house is aggressively priced, and the so-called buyers want to have me make adjustments so they can replace the kitchen and baths. Which have all been updated, but not with granite and stainless appliances, since I prefer white. So I tell my realtor to have them make an offer, and we'll consider it, and then I hear that they're not ready to make an offer. Which tells me they're just trying to get the price down and aren't really interested, it's a total waste of time.

I think my younger son has a band concert tonight, but he hasn't told me about it yet, so not sure if I'll be spending my evening at the middle school or not. Always an adventure these days, and I know I'll be going there on Thursday night for my older son's band concert. And my daughter is singing in a talent show tomorrow night at the high school, so I'll be putting my walker to good use.

Hope everyone is doing well, I haven't felt much like writing lately, been feeling a little down with this crap we all go through. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get to the ocean beach at all this year due to my legs, and though I'm not a sun worshipper I still love to look for sea glass and shells, and rocks!

Liz, you're doing great if all you slipped up with was 2 cigarettes yesterday, today's a new start! Try to go to places where you can't smoke, which around here, is pretty much everywhere public!

Talk to you later!

LOL @ Kimberly! I swear the meanest thing I've ever done to her was take her to the doctor!

Well, Lily was tooling around like her old self yesterday and then Bradley gave her some raw chicken and back under the bed she went! I think she had a tummy ache. Anyway she's like her old self again today but I took her to the vet just to make sure she really is okay and not hiding anything. He felt her tummy and said it felt like she was a little bloated and her tummy was squishy. Maybe she ate too much chicken. Bradley does tend to think more is better. I should keep a closer eye on him I guess. The doctor presribed come Clavamax or some antibiotic like that that I'll give her twice a day but other than that she's fine. Not bad for a 17 year old girl!

I hope everyone is having a good day today!

Kimberly, I feel blessed to have you for a friend too. I know exactly what you were talking about when you said you'd like to give all of us a big real hug rather then just a {{{{{CYBER HUG}}}}}. I feel the same way. I don't know what I'd do without you all.
