Ya know I think so, but then I am a tad biased Rolling my eyes.

This is what Jan is up to https://trailwalker.oxfam.org.au/my/team/27156

Aidan and Ethan are playing soccer, basketball and Aidan is on his school's swim team. Peter is doing Iron Man training for an event coming up in a couple months. They are all so busy it is hard to keep track.

But Smiley, don't you want to hang from the ceiling while doing the downward facing dog or learn to grip a pole with your legs while you seek inner peace?

Whistling I hear ya. Yoga or Tai Chi sound much more appealing. Oh, and the words BUFF and BRAZILIAN attached to any program automatically sends me toward the door.

When they signed up for the walk, they set a goal of $2500. When they met that, they raised their goal to $3500 and as they reach each new goal, they just keep raising the bar. Jan said the $2500 goal was the promised amount. Anything over that is lagniappe. Now they have friends and family betting on howmany hours it will take them to walk the 100KM (64 miles) But all the money goes to OXFAM. https://www.oxfam.org/en/countries/history-oxfam-internation...

Waving hello!

Why no, Moon.. I do not. Big Grin I was hoping to take some photo's outside, but that hasn't happened. It's so pretty in my postage stamp sized backyard!

I was hoping to post more, but as busy as I've been lately, there's nothing worth noting. *Blush*

But I have to go, I have to make a cake.. someone is having a birthday tomorrow..

Probably more than just 1 someone will be getting older.... Rolling my eyes.

Sorry they are keeping you too busy to play in the dirt. How are things in general? Jim got the report from the sleep study. He does indeed have apnea...no surprise, he is waiting for the A-PAP machine to come in. It is an automatically adjusting O2 flow rather than a constant flow (C-PAP)


Around here I am stuck with mud, in the yard, garden, clothes, floors, tools... Thumbs down We have had a solid week of everyday rain and it is probably gonna be here through Tuesday night. At least I'll know where the low spots are. Whistling We have had about 5 or so inches right here at my house. Blinking

I have rescheduled with roofers for them to come out for an estimate on the new roof twice now. Fortunately it isn't leaking. Thumbs up

I was comparing oxygen notes with Big Boss the other day. he had a C-Pap, I believe. He was saying that there's a spot to put water in it, and that you have to clean out the tubes every day.. I didn't know that.. he bought a little machine that cleans everything, he loves it.

I'm hoping that if I can lose enough weight I can lose this machine. Thumbs down

But hey.. It's someone's birthday today!!!

Lovey dubby Thanks for the cakes...and NO calories. Hurray! and the birthday wishes. I think they are all pretty.

I saw an ad for the cleaning machine thingy...gonna see about getting him one of those cuz he'll be using this for at least the next six months...probably longer. Julie, I know you can and will do whatever you have to do. You gotta be ready to chase grandkids... Group hug

Mary, I have been trying to get Jim to see the Doc about his snoring for years. He always made a joke about staying up all night and never once hearing himself snore. Last night we were talking and he said he guessed I was right about the snoring....and if he had just listened he probably would still have his vision in his right eye and it would have saved him from a week long hospital stay.... Not one of those "I told you so moments" Sad

Reading is one of his great joys and now it is very hard for him to do so. He is 20/200 in one eye and 20/400+ in the other, but it was correctable to 20/30 and 20/40 with his glasses. After he has the cataract surgery for his left eye, he may be able to enjoy reading again.

Good luck to Jim with his surgery. Have you ever tried audio books? We have a driver at work who listens to audio books in his truck and he loves them.

I am surprising myself even, with the dieting thing. I think it's a combination of the fact that I'm paying for it, and I want to lose the blood pressure med & oxygen machine. If I can lose them, great! If not, oh well.

My kids are on their way to Bonnaroo today! U2 is the highlight band this year. The Weeknd is there also, I think they're more excited about him, actually. We all saw U2 back in 2005, I think it was. Fantastic show. Found out yesterday they added dates to the tour and they'll be here in September. I asked DH if he wanted the cheap seats or one-up? Hilarious! I'm also trying to win tickets for Roger Waters, he'll be here also. I've heard great things about both tours.

And RIP, Gregg Allman. Crying That one hurt.

Time for lunch! Have a good day! Group hug

It will be a while before Jim has surgery....not on any calendar as yet.

I thought it was about time for Bonnaroo. I wanna go somewhere....don't care if it is just into New Orleans again. I miss live music venues....couldn't get DH to even consider Jazz Fest....I mean Dave Matthews??? Tom Petty??? Grumbling Would love to see Roger Waters...Jim might even go for that.

Yup, listened to ABB1969-1979.....In Memory of Elizabeth Reed

Ran across this from the Denver Post.... http://www.denverpost.com/2017/06/09/minimum-wage-rent-two-b...


How in the name of grace and goodness are families supposed to make it? There is a serious disconnect in our country... Confused Sad

You got that right, Moon. Thumbs down Fed minimum wage is $7.25??? Seriously??? NYS is $9.70, I lose track of federal.

Our 'old men' are turning into old men, Moon. Good thing you're down there and I'm up here, between the garden centers and concerts we'd be broke! DH is the same way ~ "but the crowwwwwwdsssss". My kids both want to see U2 again. I'll try on Monday, but I really don't have much hope of getting a spot in line for tickets that will be sold out in 10 minutes. The music guy in The Buffalo News said:

The only saving grace is that New Era Field is 80,000 seats. Thumbs up
Bills season ticket holders at last count: over 58,000 Thumbs down

But they all won't want to see U2, right? Hilarious! Regarding Gregg Allman one last time, DS bought us an iPod for Christmas since our new vehicle doesn't have a cd player. We loaded it up with music and we had it outside on a Saturday, the first major gardening day we had. I put on 'Live at the Fillmore East' and once (whatever album you play) it's done, it just starts over again. It played through, played again and then DH said we should probably change it. Later on, before bed, he was checking the news website and saw that Gregg had passed. Crying

Back to the concerts, our local music guy in the paper said this:

So maybe I'm being a bit of a snob, but still – I find it insulting that the collapse of recorded music as a means of making money for artists has been passed on to us as concert-goers. We're paying the difference. It's gross.

I agree wholeheartedly. Have a good day! (insert waving guy here)

It's the same old story....and it scares me for my kids, but even more so for the grandkids. What world will they struggle to live in? Seems there will always be a wealthy class, a poor mass and the folks in the middle that get to pay for it all. From day to day life to music and film...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_1LfT1MvzI

I read where Devon Allman left Royal Southern Brotherhood....Haven't heard anything from him in a while. Although Jimmie Vaughns's son Trevor is rocking the crowds in Devon's place. I miss the music scene Sad

Not music, but camp.....Adam West...Fare thee well, Batman...fare thee well

On another note, I hope you are able to view this link, our paper can get funny sometimes unless you're a subscriber..

I remember this - we moved to Buffalo in October, this happened in July. I remember wondering what the big deal was. Hilarious!

The link worked fine. That has got to be a shocking sight...."Duh, where'd the water go, Ollie?" Do you think they will actually take out the "temporary" bridges, or just make them more permanent? Rolling my eyes.

There is a huge difference between the American side and the Canadian side of The Falls. The Canadian side is beautiful, lots of gardens and shops, wax museum, etc.. The American side is ... not so nice.... so they are trying to clean it up and make it more tourist friendly. If I was a tourist, I would look at the American side and say 'nice', then go over the Rainbow Bridge and have some real fun in Canada.

So I would think they would fix it up nice. At least I hope so. Sad
