And what the hell happened to my avatar?!? >:(


Photobucket decided to  surprise their users, and no longer allow 3rd party hosting of images.  Anyone who had their avatars  or signature lines  on Photobucket,  those images are gone.

So are various pics from Jake  and Heath threads, gatherings threads, and TDS.

 >:(


I'm starting to move my pics  from Photobucket to Flickr, and will work on replacing the missing pics that I can.   I also made a new avatar for you.  I hope you like it!

Hey y'all! Yay!

Another typical July day, with the temp getting hotter as the week goes by. Wyoming should be far more pleasant in August at those elevations!

It just clouded up and might threaten some rain, but there's only scattered amounts in the area.

Still peeling from the sunburn that I got at the baseball game on 25 June!

*Walks in, looks around, sees friends!* Hi everybody! :) What a shiny new diner! I'm going to have a root beer and look at the menu--I know I'll have pie at the end, but I need something with protein and a green veg. Maybe fried chicken to celebrate the new digs.

It's hot and humid in my part of NJ. I'm working on staying cool and thinking of the weather as practice for our trip to Florida (West Palm Beach and Orlando). We leave here Friday afternoon and I am not ready! I love the new avatars for Sara and Mark.

Hey Fritz! After giving up on my plan to join folks for the eclipse in WY, I am now thinking about going down to the Carolinas. That would be two long car trips more or less back to back, but it would be a lot cheaper. The weather is a crap shoot, of course, but I'd really like to see it.
Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35
Post by: fritzkep on July 18, 2017, 05:13:06 PM
It should be fantastic! Hard to say what's more likely to be clear, but upstate SC will probably be a bit clearer than the coast. The Clemson area would be great! If it weren't for the fact of meeting friends in WY, the better chance of clearer skies, and the fact that I'll be going there to SC at Christmas, I might try to view from there too.

Roofer was here for an estimate.  He will call my cell with numbers next week, while I'm away.  He's older now, of course, and doesn't actually do roofing any more, but he has a helper for that.  He'll do the siding, if I decide to get that replaced.

I think I'm giving up on pictures.  My new computer doesn't have the software to handle them the way the old one did, and we can't find any suitable software anywhere.  I had to take my last ones to Wal-Mart to get a few prints.

Yeah.  Bummer.

I had a big salad for dinner, the remaining third of one I bought for lunch, and then I added some other ingredients to it.  The "create your own" from lunch had green lettuce, white curly noodes, tomatoes, broccoli, tuna, turkey, and chickpeas.  Tonight I added some mandarin oranges, more lettuce, and walnut pieces to fill up the bowl again.

Oh cool, Fritz!! There are always folks who are going to be against it. I have mixed feelings. I like watching games on TV, because one can see all the action and see plays over again, but with a jumbotron you can be there in the action and feel the excitement but still see the replays.

I vaguely remember falling out of a high chair at  restaurant that had a granite floor, when I was a kid.  Must have ended up with a big bump on my head, and came home to Grandma's afterwards to get an ice pack and some TLC.  I was fine after a while, but Grandma was the most worried.

I remember riding a very large tricycle down the slope of an overpass back in New Orleans, and at the end was a large concrete block. I lost control of the tricycle and hit the block, and the trike flipped and fell on my head. Had to get several stitches. I think the scar is still there, it was noticeable when my hair was very short in Army days.

Hi Debbie. My photos are ok on my new laptop, but I just can't easily get them on to the forum except very laboriously one by one from imgur on my iPad. I suppose I may get better at it... Facebook is so much easier for photos, but I don't put very many on there. Also Instagram. But they won't get them here!

I swam yesterday too with Antonia (sis) at Seaton! It wasn't icy, but my hands never warmed up and I only stayed in about 5 minutes. Pretty rough too - had to choose a moment between waves for getting in and out! But yes, it does feel good afterwards. :D

We had about 10" of thunder this morning up on the mountain, but nothing wet! >:(

Was trying to think how you measured thunder in inches... :) We had some in the night, and rain, but nothing dramatic.

Oh dear. Luckily you're always around for her.

I swam yesterday too with Antonia (sis) at Seaton! It wasn't icy, but my hands never warmed up and I only stayed in about 5 minutes. Pretty rough too - had to choose a moment between waves for getting in and out! But yes, it does feel good afterwards. :D

Hi Debbie. My photos are ok on my new laptop, but I just can't easily get them on to the forum except very laboriously one by one from imgur on my iPad. I suppose I may get better at it... Facebook is so much easier for photos, but I don't put very many on there. Also Instagram. But they won't get them here!

Hi, Sara.  I can get photos onto my new computer and see them (at least small versions) on the screen, but I can't take a big screen-size photo and edit it, crop it, and finally print it to my printer.  I'm missing any software similar to the old PhotoSmart Essentials, and it's evidently not made for this newer operating system.

Photobucket must be a hassle of its own, but ever since I got emails while I was away, saying that my PB account had been restricted (I think they wanted money) I haven't had time to pursue it, and will probably just give up.  The Wal-Mart photos weren't bad, for showing people locally here.

I really wish I'd had more time with you, Linda, and had a swim (among other things). Might I have dragged you or Jimmy into the Pacific with me? :D

Definitely not me, maybe Jimmy, but probably not either. It was always WAY too cold for me.
I wish we had more time too, but you can always come visit here. There are lots and lots of things to do, and if you are not afraid of heights, and sand, then I think you would really enjoy it!!

Now if I make it there, then I will stick my feet in the water!!

It's just way to expensive for me right now.  I'm not traveling anywhere this year.   I believe my name is on the list because I set up the FB page.  I tried to change that, but can't.

Hello Sara!

Just in  case no one answered, "loaded potatoes" usually means potatoes topped with bacon, cheese, sour cream, or other toppings.



They do look like a bit of an overload, but good, I'll bet.  I'd skip the sour cream, not because I don't like it, but because it's SOOO heavy.

Thought I might catch Sara in here!! LOL...no such luck....anyway, I picked green beans today, a nice batch.....and MORE Cukes!! I've had cukes and onion slices with a little vinegar added, about as good as pickles, but crunchier!! Is that a word?  :o :o :o

anyway, wondered about Sara's French green beans, probably not like the ones we buy in the cans here. I won't starve now until late Fall. Last year my green beans started blooming in Sept/Oct, I had a Fall crop too.........

Still HOT as HADES here today........had to mow tonight, I waited till dusk, and it was still close to 95 degrees F........too HOT for me........ >:D >:D >:D

As I think I told folks earlier, Juliet won't be going, either. Like you, Chuck, the money was just too much. :( I'd have loved to see Brokies in Wyoming, but it won't happen this year. I'm hoping to get down to Greenville in SC to see the eclipse.

I missed Debbie, but on the odd chance you come back before you leave, have a wonderful and relaxing trip.

Running around getting things together for my trip. Tomorrow is packing, but before that, Ingbroiling, I'm getting my HAIR WASHED(and cut). ;D There, I knew that would cheer you up. I'm sorry you and Mr. S are suffering with the heat. It's awful here and will remain so until we leave for Florida, where it will be just as bad or worse. Lots of thunder and lightning and drenching rain there in between the very hot and humid periods. Mr. Carrier is a deity to me--his invention of the air conditioner has made my surviving summer possible.

Linda, I hope Lilia doesn't run you ragged. Does she go to her other grandparents for Thursday?

I'll at least peek in here tomorrow and expect to visit sporadically after that until I'm home on the 28th. Take care of yourselves, folks!

I'll be gone a good part of Saturday, attending a memorial service for a friend whose husband died a year ago that day. It's in DC and close to a Metro station, so I'll go that route rather than try to drive in town. Fortunately I can park for free on weekends at our nearest Metro station, East Falls Church, the one where I picked y'all up, Ing!

VALIDATED!

The German president just signed the law for equal marriage, meaning that it's valid now. Next Monday the law will be published, and from Oct 1st gay marriages will be possible all over the country.

Fantastic news, Ingy!!!

We went to a outdoor party in a castle courtyard, not far from here, and barely had we arrive when a terrible thunderstorm hit, plus torrential rain fell for two hours.

Luckily we could hide inside.

We had a beer and waited with 300 totally unknown people for the lightnings to stop.

Then went or rather swam back to our car (parked a mile away) and are home now safe and sound but wet.

Jeeeeeez!

Hiya Chuck.

I was talking to Jimmy on the phone and telling him about Photobucket. He had not heard about it, as he does not use PB. We were looking at the different replacements for PB and he looked at one called UltraIMG.com

He opened up an account and that is what he used for the image in Photo Captions. I opened up an account and used it to replace Fritz's avatar.  For some reason I cannot get Flickr to work right for me. I will have to call you to help me use Flickr if I go with them.

I have had an account for a long time now, but never used it. I did download mine and Ingy's avatars on there to see the ease of use, but did not like it.

I opened up an account on UltraIMG and it seems a little better.

Have you tried to download an album off PB yet?

Yes, I've had minor issues,  but have managed to move pics to my flickr account.

there may be an issue i've discovered, however.   I realized I had no privacy settings put up, because I had no private pics,  just BBM, Jake,  Heath and pics like that.

I then thought about the BBM gatherings, and in  PB,  I had those private, but could still post them in the forum in the members only area.   It appears on PB that if I set  my pics as "private", then I can't post them to a forum, just a blank square will appear.

No,  I'm saying that if you upload pics to flickr, and label them as "private", when you try to post the images here, they won't appear.

At least, that's what I think.  I tried that with a few Heath pics, and it looked like it didn't work.

Hey y'all, another s.h.h.h. day (that's sunny hazy hot humid). Drove to the Metro and took it to just north of the White House, then walked to National City Christian Church (also called Disciples of Christ) for the memorial service. It was very nice, a large church with a wonderful sounding organ (opening with Widor's Toccata, Ing!), readings and a couple of familiar hymns. Just got back, it's not pleasant being out in that heat (mid 90's, but it feels hotter).

So far it's been a fairly quiet system that has passed through in a couple of stages. The heat wave's not over by any means, but it has cooled down a bit, and the worst of the cells have passed.

Oh, don't you have the expression "the elephant in the room"? I didn't know it was just British.

I still don't understand. Please make it clear to a poor foreigner.
Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35
Post by: ingmarnicebbmt on July 23, 2017, 04:22:28 PM
Oh, I've just had a thought! Perhaps it's "Don't mention it" that's only British, meaning "you're welcome"?

Speaking in mysteries (to me).

So that's what's funny (to me), saying "don't mention it". No, of course no one would put an actual elephant in the room! Never mind, must be Brit sense of humour.😃

I had heard the names on the news, but not a lot of detail about them. Of course, Atlantic and Gulf storms get so much more attention here. Seems that Don fizzled out. It would have been appropriate had a storm of that name done damage in the rural South.

I'm usually the one who "doesn't get it", so I'm quite surprised that I did as soon as I read it.  LOL  I thought it was quite funny.

Humourwise, sometimes we're so similar, almost like one mind, and other times we don't "get" much at all. Funny, isn't it?

Good evening.

Our w/e was ok.

Very strange weatherwise. Instable, rain, clouds, wind, sun, very much like autumn. and then all of a sudden too hot.

Our street party was nice, but less exciting than the previous two years.

Today we went for a swim in the lake, had a boring time over coffee with another neighbour, and then relaxed at home.

Plus loooooong phone call with my sis.

It looks like the end of the cell is not far to our west. So many of these small but intense cells have been going around us that it was surprising when it hit.

Even though for the longest time it was heading straight for us.

I must get to work on TDS.

However, Ingster,  just in case it's still a mystery, here's a little more about the elephant.

In some countries there is an expression that states you should never mention the elephant in the room. 

Let's say that you and Sylvain are hosting a dinner party.  However, even though you're married to Sylvain, you and I are carrying on a passionate affair, that everyone knows about, but Sylvain does not.  Our affair is the "elephant in the room".  Everyone can see it, everyone  knows about it,  but no one will acknowledge it, and it's making  everything awkward.   Out of some false sense of "decency" no one  will mention the elephant in the room,  because they don't want to upset Sylvain.

Some may even say to each other on the way to your party:  "Now remember, when we get to  Ingy's, don't mention the elephant in the room."  (Our affair)

Now, with that explanation, here's the pun.

I bought my friend an elephant for his room.
He said "Thanks."
I said "Don't mention it."

:laugh:

It passed through quickly, but dropped a lot of rain in a short time, but just a little thunder and lightning.

The next few days are supposed to have lower humidity.

Today was very humid with slightly lower temps than the weekend.

We had a nice time with my friends, but couldn't literally do anything. We were stuck in the house all evening long and during the morning, just rainrainrain. We went for a walk in the vineyards, but even then it was wet cold and unpleasant. We've got October temperatures now.

Now they left (for a holiday in the Alps), and I'll return to my writing desk.

Your guess is as good as mine! The director has been away until a few days ago, this will be our first and only practice!

Because of the early hour tomorrow, I expect most of the Spanish choir won't be able to make it, since they'd still be at work, or just coming home. In our choir most people are retired.

Most of the hymns will be familiar.

Your guess is as good as mine! The director has been away until a few days ago, this will be our first and only practice!

Because of the early hour tomorrow, I expect most of the Spanish choir won't be able to make it, since they'd still be at work, or just coming home. In our choir most people are retired.

Most of the hymns will be familiar.


Get them all fired up, Fritzie!!!

Oh, that sounds yummy!

I haven't eaten yet, but I have some egg salad mixed with  avocado in the fridge.  I'll have that with some crackers, and some corn on the cob, which I'm craving for some reason.  LOL

Bonjour!

Here it has been a very wet and very cold day so far. And this won't stop until Friday !!

We had a nice time with my friends, but couldn't literally do anything. We were stuck in the house all evening long and during the morning, just rainrainrain. We went for a walk in the vineyards, but even then it was wet cold and unpleasant. We've got October temperatures now.

Now they left (for a holiday in the Alps), and I'll return to my writing desk.

Sorry your weather is still so off kilter, Ingy!

Hey y'all, rather mild and pleasant and blissfully unhumid today! The whole summer could be like this!

We've got the doors and windows open.



Hiya Fritz. :-*  :-*  :-*  :-*  :-*

It was hottish today, the humidity high. Lilia and I went outside to let the chickens out of their coop and watch them and she learned how to throw a ball overhand against the column on the back porch, and chase after it. We had a good time. We ate lunch and then we both took a nap.

Hey y'all, a nice day today, a little warmer and more humid than yesterday, but still pleasant.

The singing went well, we had several guitars, mandolin and several sets of bongos that sounded great especially with the Spanish songs. In addition to the piano.

The reception afterwards was delicious! I didn't know that the parish had a group of Mexican folk dancers. There was also a mariachi group providing music. The line for food was long but well worth it, I'm still stuffed! I took lots of pics, I'll post on FB probably tomorrow.

I am going to try to get her into a Mother's Day Out program 1 day a week now, and then hopefully a preschool at 4, but that would have to be something to be paid for, but yes, Kindergarten at 5.

She needs to start a structured program to learn how to get dropped off and not lose it, and to get socialized with other children.

It's official now: In Germany the law for equal marriage has been published today in the Bundesgesetzblatt, i.e. the Federal Law Publication. It is valid now.

Marriages can take place from Oct 2nd onwards, and civil unions, like ours, can be transformed into marriage certificates from that same day onwards.

Meaning: In late autumn we will be married in France AND in Germany!

Marriages can take place from Oct 2nd onwards, and civil unions, like ours, can be transformed into marriage certificates from that same day onwards.

Meaning: In late autumn we will be married in France AND in Germany!

Ausgezeichnet!

But can Bavaria and the CSU still cause trouble between now and then?

Hey y'all, I came home via AAA to pick up some maps for the trip. It rained a little bit from the time I left work until I got home, but we'll get a lot more tonight through tomorrow night. I'm glad to be staying put!

Afterwards, one can't de-marry people again...

Good morning, folks! :) I'm back from hot, hazy, humid Florida, where the tropical fug is interrupted by thunderstorms and the sky is mostly overcast. Needless to say, I didn't leave the hotel very often or for very long. The hotel, however, was arctic--apparently Disney felt we should have the full Frozen experience. The Swan/Dolphin hotel complex is enormous, so you don't even have to use the gym or pool to get your exercise; walking to and from our room to the conference area and between sessions there made it easy to get those 10,000 steps in.

The conference, which is about Jewish genealogy, went well. We met up with friends, heard interesting presentations, and networked. Unfortunately, my cold/sinus infection came back and the air conditioning made it worse, so I didn't get to as many sessions as I would have liked and I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. *sigh* But hey, at least I wasn't sweltering up here in NJ. :)

Today we have sun and moderately warm temperatures with reasonable humidity, so I'm going to take advantage of it to get things done, including shopping, laundry and errands. Hope everyone is having a good day. :)

Sorry to hear about this, Ingy.

Sam Shepard died today as well.

Sam Shepard, Pulitzer-Winning Playwright and Actor, Is Dead at 73

Sam Shepard, whose hallucinatory plays redefined the landscape of the American West and its inhabitants, died on Thursday at his home in Kentucky of complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, a spokesman for the Shepard family announced on Monday. He was 73.

Possessed of a stoically handsome face and a rangy frame, Mr. Shepard became a familiar presence as an actor in films that included “Days of Heaven” (1978), “The Right Stuff” (1983) and “Baby Boom” (1987). He bore a passing resemblance to that laconic idol of Hollywood’s golden era, Gary Cooper, and in an earlier age, Mr. Shepard could have made a career as a leading man of Westerns.

would love to have that happen here today, but I really can't complain.   July has been much cooler than normal.  My electric  bill (from running the A/C) in the summer is usually $140.00.  Last month my bill was $30.00 less than that, so it shows that I've not used the  A/C as much.

Off to the fan  threads, and then to finish TDS.   Be back later!

Looking for some cuteness?

Gay animation In A Heartbeat has been uploaded in full on YouTube after we all cooed over the first trailer earlier this year.  The project has been created by filmmakers Esteban Bravo and Beth David, who raised over $14,000 on Kickstarter to fund the film.

“A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams,” an official description reads.

You can watch the adorable short in full (4 minutes in length) below.

One of the nice things about northern New Mexico. Not as dry as, say, Phoenix, but still not too much precip. And the temps are not as harsh as the lower areas of Arizona, because of the higher elevation.

It was 61° this morning when I got up. It felt soo good!! It only got up to about 85° today. Lilia and I went to the purple park and we had a good time. We came home and ate lunch and then I took an hour nap, and she took a 3 hour nap!!

We lost one of the chickens to a coyote last night, so they had to beef up the chicken coop, and we are all going to have to go out with the dogs after dark when we let them out to do their business.

"On Monday the 7th of August, the "Lesbians" will open. Until Friday, five volunteers in the old Capuchin monastery read from their favorite book every evening. Admission is free as usual. We introduce a reader from every evening. The musicologist and book author Jens Rosteck (54) is the prelude.

I can even read slowly, "says Rosteck. This gives him the opportunity to stage his contribution effectively; This includes slow reading, which makes it even more intense. The short story, which the musicologist and author wants to introduce, does not take 15 minutes to read. This is the maximum time that the readers will have from Monday, August 7th, at the "Lesbian Summer" in Offenburg.

The Paul Bowles story "The Garden" pleases him, "because everyone understands it." Beside the simple language also speak the very clear number of the figures for the parabola. For him to make a suitable contribution to the "Lesesommer", the story makes it "go under the skin". It is about the beautiful, about what inspires you - and that the others often can not see it. Gloomy and melancholic is the story, as all of Bowles. With this, the musicologist occupied himself longer. "He was a successful composer," he says. But somehow he settled down in Morocco and had no desire to travel to New York to Broadway to supervise the study of his stage pieces. "Then he began to write," Rosteck said.

His wife was already a writer, and Bowles himself succeeded in "Heaven over the Desert" as a much-respected novel. "His stories are all mournful, morbid and bizarre, almost in the style of an Edgar Allan Poe," the expert says. This is in contrast to Bowle's music: it comes as a light, cheerful entertainment.

Rosteck is especially excited about the atmosphere at the Lesesemmer. He does not know him yet: "I went to Zell-Weierbach only two years ago, and last year the event had failed." Nevertheless, he gladly agreed to sit on the podium when he was asked: Sibylle Reiff -Michalik, head of the city library, wanted to win him as the "celebrity reader". He had learned about it when he presented his latest book on Jacques Brel in the city library last year.

Though he himself wrote much-respected books - about Edith Piaf or Jacques Brel, for example - who would meet the criterion and from which he could read, he did not want to. "Better," he says. It was also important for him to present a completed story: "It is easier if it is" round. "" If he then introduced them to a new author, they find it interesting to read the novel or other short stories.

Good starting point

In Offenburg, the scientist has not only pursued the literary business - he also uses his new home as a strategic starting point for his further research and work. "I'm fast in Strasbourg or Paris," he says. He is currently studying with Joan Baez: He puts the songs of the American pacifist and civil rights activist in connection with their life phases and concerns. "It is little noticed, although the 75-year-old in France is still on the stage at sold out concerts," he says. His monograph on the singer, which will be released in September, is to change this. And because he is reading the proofs, he is happy about the change that Lesesemmer will offer him: "The stimulus is to make something different."

Bonjour or rather bonsoir.

The weather continues to be depressing.

Dark, dark, grey, grey, rainy, rainy all day. What kind of August is this??

The visit at our friends' place could cheer us up only momentarily.

We bought ourselves a huge nice froggy for the garden. Really charming! Alas, only seconds later I got stung by a wasp in my left fingertip. (My index.) Hurts like hell. I pressed an onion against it, but it didn't help much.

Sunny and cooler here, which is nice. :) Cleaning and catching up with things at home continues. Tonight we're out to dinner with our friends--they have a gas grill now, so things are faster, and they're grilling up a storm. Booked my trip to North Carolina to visit with my sister and her family in October--I hope the leaves are still on display. The upper respiratory nastiness seems to be fading out, finally. \o/

Sorry to hear about the unpleasant weather and the wasp sting, Ingmariposa. Terrible place to get one. Hope it's calmed down in the meantime.

We watched La La Land on DVD tonight and were totally disappointed.

Although we both love musicals, we didn't warm up to the story, to the characters, to the music... to nothing, really.

This simply is NOT a musical at all.

Both leads are awful, and don't have a history, nothing credible. And they both seem totally sexless.

A mystery how this could become so popular.

God knows there have been dozens of excellent musical movies in the past decades...

Yes, I was at the office today.  I'm on vacation next week, and had some things that needed to be finished at the office, so I went in today for a few hours.  It was worth it, in three hours I got a massive amount done, and now I can relax next week.

I can well understand how you can get a lot more done without people around.

I'm almost always the first in the office at 6, and can get a lot of the stuff that comes in from Germany overnight without having to do stuff for other people at the same time! That comes later, when things are quieter.

Believe it or not,  the most difficult thing to get done is filling.

The office has something called "High Density Filling".   It looks like this.


(http://www.montel.com/images/QuadraMobile_High_Density_Mobile_Shelving_Storage_03.jpg)

You turn the crank in the direction you want the cabinets to move, and they wheel across the floor, revealing more  shelves for filing.

However, unlike the pic above, our office has more cabinets than in the pic above, so when it 'opens", it only has room for one person to move in and out, and the other files are still closed. 

So if I go to do my filing, and someone is already inside doing something in another aisle, I can't get to my sections without crushing them by closing their aisle to open one for me.

 ::)

Did that make sense?
Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35
Post by: fritzkep on August 05, 2017, 07:41:22 PM
Kinda!  ;D

Still, it's kinda weird that only one person can access files at a time. I can imagine two or more people needing files urgently.

Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35

I don't generate a whole lot of paper now that things are computerized. In fact, I just have to file the freight papers away about once a month or so, and the filing cabinets are right outside my office in the warehouse. We used to make a whole lot more, especially when everything had to be typed. I'm so glad that the officers now type their own things rather than handwriting it and giving it to me to be typed. I don't miss that work at all!

Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35
Post by: CellarDweller115 on August 05, 2017, 08:33:58 PM
haahahaaa.

We seem to have everything in triplicate.   We have the hard copies, (the paper files) and we also save it to a drive on the computer, and then when we send our loan packages to the documentation area, they scan and save them electronically too.

I was going to take it easy today, but got caught up in moving storage boxes to my closet, since Jonathan got the long shelf put up. Doing things like this always leads to other things having to get done. Maybe tomorrow.

Hello Diners! I don't know what happened to July which just whizzed by, and now August is doing the same thing. And the weather isn't very good :(, after a lovely early summer. On Thursday I'm going to Wales for a railway holiday for 4 days, staying in a hotel but going out on steam train trips each day, with 2 railway addicts ;).
Had a few health bothers. A lot of digestive (?) discomfort, which I have a feeling may be gall bladder. Doctor not too worried as I haven't lost weight, but I'm going to have a scan next week. It comes and goes, with a bit of nausea and tiredness. But I'm generally ok.

And sat later on our sunny terrace.

Hidden Kisses 1 The Looks of Love
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nQlq5gRV-A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nQlq5gRV-A)

   ~~~fia (aka Timsit)


Hello fia!

Been a busy weekend for me, so I haven't had the chance to see all the videos, however, I did watch the first (Look of Love).   I'm on "staycation" this week, so I will be watching the rest during the week.

:)

So much can be done with the eyes, can't it?  Even  without the dialog in the videos, just the expressions on the faces, the looks of the eyes, convey so much.

The look in the classroom,  the reunion at the station, the rooftop, they were all wonderfully done, and the talents of those two young actors......to be able to get so much across with just the face.....I hope they have long, successful careers. 

and (of course) the scarf echos the shirt scene in Brokeback.  :)

I look forward to seeing the remaining videos, thanks for pointing us to them!

I hope they are able to determine what it is, Sara. It does sound like gall bladder. I had to have mine removed and I did not lose weight, but had the other symptoms you are talking about.

the wasp sting on my finger still hurts like hell - after almost two days

is this normal?


Symptoms of a wasp sting

The majority of people without sting allergies will show only minor symptoms during and after a wasp sting. The initial sensations can include sharp pain or burning at the sting site. Redness, swelling, and itching can occur as well.

Normal local reactions

You’re likely to develop a raised welt around the sting site. A tiny white mark may be visible in the middle of the welt where the stinger punctured your skin. Usually, the pain and swelling recedes within several hours of being stung. Unless you’re allergic, most bee stings can be treated at home.

Large local reactions

“Large local reactions” is a term used to describe more pronounced symptoms associated with a wasp or bee sting. People who have large local reactions may be allergic to wasp stings, but don’t experience life-threatening symptoms, such as anaphylactic shock. Large local reactions to wasp stings include extreme redness and swelling that increases for two or three days after the sting. Nausea and vomiting can also occur. Find out what’s happening in your body during an allergic reaction.

Most of the time, large local reactions subside on their own over the course of a week or so. Let your doctor know if you have a large local reaction after a wasp sting. They may direct you to take an over-the-counter antihistamine medication (such as Benadryl) to reduce your discomfort.

Having a large local reaction after a wasp sting one time doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll react to future stings in the same way. You could have one strong reaction and never show the same symptoms again. On the other hand, a large local reaction could be the way your body routinely responds to wasp stings. Try to avoid being stung to prevent these uncomfortable symptoms.

Well that's useful advice! Sort of like, "Do not stand under falling masonry". I also like "Find out what's happening in your body during an allergic reaction". I assume that's a link; otherwise it's an odd instruction. Why would I want to observe this, rather than using an antihistamine immediately? :)

Sara, I'm sorry to hear you've been ill. Hope they can fix your symptoms easily, which they can if it's gall bladder. I agree with you about how fast summer is going by--it's already August! Mind you, I've hated the heat, but our weather has turned cooler. They're still warning us about heavy rains this afternoon/evening, but the rest of the week looks okay. I hope Wales on rails is enjoyable. :)

Linda, I'm glad to hear that you're making progress with the unpacking. Is Lilia's other grandma moved in yet? She is an adorable handful, I know. :)

Hello Jenny!!

The apartment is sparkling, and my guest  has already come and gone.  :)

I haven't been sleeping well lately, so I went through a sleep test, and found out I have sleep apnea.   Today was the day that the technician came over to set up the machine and teach me how to use it.  That's why I took this week as a "staycation".   This will allow me  to get  used to sleeping with the machine, and not worry about having to get up in the morning for work.

Chuck, sorry for the drive by BUT, be sure you force yourself to get used to the C-pap and use it, use it, use it. 
Extended, chronic sleep apnea can cause a TIA (minor stroke) which can turn into a full blown stroke and much worse stuff. 

I have now been on mine for about 5 years and it is a true blessing. 

Love to all.  Simply not here much, at all, anymore but I do think of you guys and hope all is well with everyone.

Fortunately it wasn't raining very hard while I was driving, just at home and at work.

No, mine goes over the nose and mouth.   I would need that because sometimes I switch to mouth breathing,  as my nose gets congested.   So if just my nose was covered, and I started breathing through my mouth, it would defeat the purpose of having one.

I think getting adapted to this machine will be easier than I thought.

So glad to hear this, Chuck!

Just paid my American Legion dues, but I hope the timing doesn't make anyone there think that I approve of the looneybirds in the Administration. The time was just due.

I think I told y'all about this, the main reason for joining the Post in SF is that it's the only predominantly gay post in the entire Legion. Apparently the national organization has come to accept it after 32 years.

"Post 448 is not your typical American Legion post. If the Old Guard at the national level takes a stance, chances are Post 448 takes the opposite view. We are a socially progressive post which prides itself on its diversity. "

Actually fairly busy. Next week we have two Antonov 124's coming over to transport several dozen tons of military equipment from Dulles and Holloman AFB in NM (the German contingent there is shutting down year after next), and I had to book the freight.

They're huge aircraft! One's flying for a Russian airline, the other a Ukrainian. Frankly, I'm surprised they've hired them again, it's been a couple of years, and the situation has not improved.

Hey y'all, put some stuff into the car that can stay overnight, otherwise I've got some bags of stuff in the living room to be loaded tomorrow morning. I put in 45 minutes extra during this week, so I'll be able to leave at 11:15 tomorrow from work.

Sunny most of the day here, though it's clouded up. Warmer and more humid than yesterday.

Tomorrow looks partially rainy, but not a washout. My route takes me through West Virginia, because it would involve a long detour to head west toward central Kentucky just on freeways. They've been four-laning the road due west from here (part of which passes near the cabin, though I won't go that way), but it will take them many, many years to complete.

Do you have a route planned out?   And silly question.   When you eat do you stop at well know places, or do you look for local dives?
Title: Re: The Diner - Volume 35
Post by: fritzkep on August 10, 2017, 03:53:59 PM
Pretty much, mainly to cross new lines, especially starting in central to western Kansas.

If I were eating with someone else, then I'd seek out an interesting place. By myself, I'm perfectly happy getting a salad with grilled chicken from McDonalds. Only if I came across a place like a diner on I-70 in Colorado that I like would I get something else. Probably a chicken fried steak!  ;D

I probably won't get to Glenco SP until the day before the eclipse. But I'll play that by ear, I want to meet up with Dana (Wyomen), but he'll be at the Rendezvous till then, so maybe after the eclipse. I think he might be at Glenco.

We'll miss you, Fritz, though we know you'll be joining our dear friends and fellow Diners in Casper to view an amazing celestial event and collecting county lines galore. We'll be with you in spirit. :)

Hey, Chuck! I've discovered that Princeton Astrophysicists are doing a program in town to make the best of our 75%. It's during the afternoon, of course, but that isn't a problem for me. I will also be looking at NASA's streaming video. I just couldn't swing the cost of a Wyoming trip, given the cost of a hotel room on top of the flights. :'(

Tomorrow I have Grand Jury for the first time in six weeks. Between vacation, cancellations because they didn't have cases and me being sick, a lot of Fridays have gone by. I don't know if things will pick up in August, but I only have six weeks left. :)

I had a lot of shopping to do Wednesday with Lilia, of course and was exhausted when we got done. I was so tired after Lilia went with her parents, I just fell asleep. Slept good though.

Today was more box unpacking and went to Lowes with Jonathan to get some things and then went out to supper with a friend and yakked for about 3 hours. We had a good time.

It has been most wonderful to finally be here at the same time and take a walk down memory lane!

Have a wonderful productive day, and I hope to see you later in your day! :-* ♥

1. Fantastic it was !! More of that! Get a good sleep now.

2. Absolutely. I feel like I'm almost there.

Hello Diners!

We'll miss you, Fritz, though we know you'll be joining our dear friends and fellow Diners in Casper to view an amazing celestial event and collecting county lines galore. We'll be with you in spirit. :)

Hey, Chuck! I've discovered that Princeton Astrophysicists are doing a program in town to make the best of our 75%. It's during the afternoon, of course, but that isn't a problem for me. I will also be looking at NASA's streaming video. I just couldn't swing the cost of a Wyoming trip, given the cost of a hotel room on top of the flights. :'(

Tomorrow I have Grand Jury for the first time in six weeks. Between vacation, cancellations because they didn't have cases and me being sick, a lot of Fridays have gone by. I don't know if things will pick up in August, but I only have six weeks left. :)


Hello Jenny!  :-*

I hope that Grand Jury ends with a big bang for you, something really big/interesting!

Hope you enjoy what your town is doing for the eclipse!   I hear you regarding the eclipse and Wyoming, it's the same for me.

When we come to the US again, we'd love - besides spending a lot of time with you, of course - also to go to Texas where several friends live right now, and find a way to see Sue of course, and John L., and Chuck, and Fritz, and Michael.

Or the whole Brokie bunch simply has to come to ABQ too.

:)

If the play in London is next year,  how cool would be to have two large Brokie events,  the NYC Opera and the London play?

Apart from the fact that both places are pricey. But at least very easy to get to.

I like traditional pizza toppings. If I want chicken wings or cheese steak, I'll get those, but not on pizza. I got pepperoni and double mushrooms.

Same here.  Chicken on a pizza?  Bleck!

Although, beware!  Yesterday after work I was too sweaty and tired to go anywhere so I went off my diet and ordered a pizza with tomatoes, onions, and anchovies.  I have been up twice already with the dry mouth.  Drunk about a gallon of water and my mouth is STILL dry!  Damn salty anchovies!  My God!  Serves me right.  No food today!

Evening diners!

I'm home, safe and sound.

Had a wonderful trip to Alberta, we saw some of the movie sites and did some other stuff too.

Nice weather most of the time. Alberta is beyond description beautiful. We did some serious hiking (for us!  :D) most every day.

Visited Calgary (met up with Mouk!), Canmore, Morraine Lake (the world's most beautiful place), Lake Louise, Banff, the Twist Farm, Ennis' Trailer site, Goat Creek (campsite 2), Elbow Creek (sweet life site, although all is gone since the floodings four years ago), campsite 1, Upper Kananaskis Lake (I did once), and probably a couple more places that I can't recall right now.

A wonderful and restful vacation.

I spoke with Fritz last evening. He was in Missouri, close to Springfield for the night. He has not been running into any rain or bad weather, just the occasional shower. He is, of course getting lines crossed, and is headed into Kansas, and then Nebraska. He has a lot of zigzagging to do as the lines are far flung, this trip.

He said to tell everyone hello, and I will speak with him again in several day. We discussed the terrible things happening in Charlotteville. He had been following it on the radio.

I had a busy busy weekend, trying to get more things put away and finding room for more stuff and getting things hung on the walls, and putting things on bookshelves and such. It just takes me so long to get all this done, and by the time I am done I am exhausted. I have not been sleeping well, so tonight I am very sleepy, so headed to bed early tonight.

Sound as if you made quite some progress.

Now relax.

I spoke with Fritz last evening. He was in Missouri, close to Springfield for the night. He has not been running into any rain or bad weather, just the occasional shower. He is, of course getting lines crossed, and is headed into Kansas, and then Nebraska. He has a lot of zigzagging to do as the lines are far flung, this trip.

He said to tell everyone hello, and I will speak with him again in several day. We discussed the terrible things happening in Charlotteville. He had been following it on the radio.


Thanks for the update, darlin'!!!   Hope he's traveling safely!

Not yet.   I will save 40 hours (5 days) to carry over to next year.  That leaves me with a week and 3 days I need to use by the end  of the year.   I may take some time in December to make sure I get stuff done this year.

I'll work on it tonight. I need to run to the grocery store and pick up a few things. I didn't get a chance to do it earlier as Lilia and I went to the purple park to play and we were both tired, and I had Oliver, so we could not stop by the grocery store.

It's cool here; rained last night and most of today. Now it's gray and very humid, but probably no more rain until Friday. Looks like eclipse day will be clear, here. Looks good for Casper, too. Of course things can change in a hurry. Mr. Jenny and I had a lot of socializing this weekend: dinner at an Italian place Saturday with friends who moved away in June, the big Clambake and ribs and corn and multiple dessert options on Sunday (it got postponed due zto weather from Saturday), and a birthday celebration this evening. By the end of the week we'll be the only ones around, as our friends have a daughter going back to college and a road trip to North Carolina to see the eclipse. We'll be taking care of the cat. :)

There's nothing special going on otherwise, which is okay. Plenty ordinary stuff to get done. Good luck with the weather and your writing, Ingdistinguished. :) I'm not in the place to plan anything for next summer yet, but it would be fun to go to the play with everybody. Hope the interview went well, Mark, and that you're re-acclimating, Chuck. Good to hear that Fritz is making progress and that you're feeling a bit better, Linda. SYL, we're off to the birthday bash.

Told him hello from you and everyone, when I spoke to him tonight. He is doing well, and making good progress. He is in Fort Collins, CO tonight. He plans on going to northwestern CO tomorrow and then into Utah and Idaho, before heading into Wyoming for the eclipse. The weather has been good for him and he was able to cross some lines that had been uncrossable before. He was happy about that.

He said to tell everyone hello.

I was busy again with Lilia today (intensive pee pee training-wearing panties instead of pull ups and not having accidents) as well as getting more things put away and organized. I finally feel that I am getting ahead of moving in now. Not many more things to go. I do have to get some more things hung up that require drilling and such, that I can't get Jonathan to do, so as it takes me so much longer to do it, it is slow going on those items.

Glad you got better sleep last night, Ingwriter, and that you're having some sun again today. I will add to your kisses:  :-*
We're fairly warm (28-32) the next several days. It's partly cloudy and the humidity is way down (huzzah!), so I can't complain too much.

Sara, I hope all went well with the tummy scan. I saw some pictures that Neil put up on Facebook--Wales looked lovely. Hope the visit to your family up North is a good one.

Linda, it sounds like you've got your hands full. Good luck with potty training, and finishing the move-in.

I'm ploughing through Imgur and may get some pics of Wales up soon, but don't have much time. I'm off to son and famaily tomorrow afternoon for 4 days, flying to Newcastle, and tomorrow morning have a scan of my tummy at the local hospital. Worst bit seems to be no food and 1 1/2 pints of water and no peeing. :(   :o

The last bit is the hardest part.

It went well, I guess.  The questions they asked were innocuous and I didn't ask any.

Should know something by the end of the week.

*fingers crossed*   Good luck!!!

Told him hello from you and everyone, when I spoke to him tonight. He is doing well, and making good progress. He is in Fort Collins, CO tonight. He plans on going to northwestern CO tomorrow and then into Utah and Idaho, before heading into Wyoming for the eclipse. The weather has been good for him and he was able to cross some lines that had been uncrossable before. He was happy about that.

He said to tell everyone hello.


Thanks for the message, Auntie!   Glad to hear he's making good time and getting new lines done!

I was busy again with Lilia today (intensive pee pee training-wearing panties instead of pull ups and not having accidents) as well as getting more things put away and organized. I finally feel that I am getting ahead of moving in now. Not many more things to go. I do have to get some more things hung up that require drilling and such, that I can't get Jonathan to do, so as it takes me so much longer to do it, it is slow going on those items.


Good to hear, Auntie!  Glad you are feeling caught up!

She has been fighting it a lot. I am putting her on my bed now and lying down with her, and she usually takes a nap. I either take a short nap and get up, or get up after she has gone to sleep.

Oh, I meant to tell you all this, thought you'd find it funny.

Disney is launching "Frozen" as a Broadway play, and radio is playing commercials for it.   For those who don't know,  "Frozen" (briefly) is about the strained relationship between two princesses, one who can mentally manipulate cold and ice.

Anyway, in the commercial for the play, the narrator goes on about it for a while, and then says "The Disney play that shows you that love is a force of nature!"

Oh, I meant to tell you all this, thought you'd find it funny.

Disney is launching "Frozen" as a Broadway play, and radio is playing commercials for it.   For those who don't know,  "Frozen" (briefly) is about the strained relationship between two princesses, one who can mentally manipulate cold and ice.

Anyway, in the commercial for the play, the narrator goes on about it for a while, and then says "The Disney play that shows you that love is a force of nature!"

LOL

Hi Sara! Hope everything is all right with your insides. It's gray and very humid here, with flash flood warnings because of expected thunderstorms later this afternoon. I spent part of my morning signing away a good chunk of cash to get our gutters replaced--unavoidable but somewhat painful. No grand jury today--again. I don't mind at all, but it does seem a little odd. I've missed you recently.

Hi Jenny! Sorry about your cash-demanding gutters.

Insides still a little uncertain in all senses. Very variable, and I won't know the results if the ultrasound scan for a week or two I think. Meanwhile I'm being careful about what I eat.

The yard here is just hard dirt and sand, so when it rains, there is terrible run off, so this weekend Jonathan is going to spread some seed, to see if we can stabilize the ground. We needed to pick up the concrete chunks that the fence guys dug up to put the fence in and then they were also not neat about the concrete used to put the bricks in place, so all of that needs to get picked up so he can spread the seeds and then mix it into the ground.

Not a thing. My table got delivered, so I am going to put it together. That is probably the extent of what I will do, as I am too sore to be climbing up and down the ladder, or bending over to unload boxes. I need to take a weekend off.

I'll probably stitch with my feet up.

He's going to Wyoming to view the eclipse--with Brokies. :) I'm trying not to spend too much time thinking about the White House, TBH. The country is in sad shape and the president isn't helping. And there were terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Turku (Finland). Time to unplug and find a way to relax this weekend. I'm thinking of seeing a movie or two, as it will be too hot to enjoy being outside. Maybe the big sick and Dunkirk.

Linda, please take care of yourself! I'm not convinced you should be hauling concrete chunks. What about a hot bath or a long, hot shower? Definitely put your feet up. Are you driving up to Casper this weekend?

Yeah, NJ's bats got hot, and MI's defense fell apart. NJ went through their batting lineup twice. and one kid who has hit 8 home runs coming into this game got 2 more in the same inning. This kid is so good looking, he is going to be a lady killer as he gets older.

No, I am not, as I could never find a place to stay that was under $350 a night. I refuse to pay that much for a place to sleep.

I started about 18 months ago trying to find a place, and every place said they do not take reservations more than a year in advance. When I called all over exactly a year in advance (to the day) they were already all booked. So I was fighting a losing battle.

It is supposed to be about 80% here, but is supposed to be cloudy, so we will just get darker and not see it.

I missed Fritz's call tonight as my phone was dead, but he left a message that he was in Idaho. He was going to stop at a motel tonight, but most places were full as he is in the totality area, and a small hole in the wall place that did have something wanted $105 and he said no, so he will sleep in his car again.

I missed Fritz's call tonight as my phone was dead, but he left a message that he was in Idaho. He was going to stop at a motel tonight, but most places were full as he is in the totality area, and a small hole in the wall place that did have something wanted $105 and he said no, so he will sleep in his car again.

Places are really jacking up the prices!

That's such a shame... I'd love to have seen it, but it all seemed too uncertain. My best was about 85%, in Devon. I wished I'd driven the extra 80 miles like my daughter did in Cornwall, but she so nearly missed it as the clouds just parted at the last minute!

It's supposed to be partially cloudy tomorrow,  so I'm not certain how much I'll actually see.

Good to know. I look forward to having her back with us. :)

Watched the eclipse, mostly through the NASA feed to see totality, but I went outside for our maximum coverage, from 2:40 to 2:50. It got darker and cooler. The birds were a bit freaked out. We had some cloud cover, but there were holes in it, so you could see the crescent get smaller. I didn't see much of the following increase, but it was noticeable as the light brightened. I definitely want to see totality but who knows what kind of weather will be along the path of totality in early April? Mr. Jenny and I may try to get down to Argentina in 2019, when the eclipse happens on July 2nd. He has relatives in Argentina, but the path is pretty far south of them, so we'd have to plan to get down into Patagonia from Buenos Aires. Who knows if we'll do that. I'd love to see more of Argentina, though.

Earthquake on the island of Ischia where we spent our holidays in June !! Exactly in the two little villages where our hotels are/were.

I wrote a mail to two people we met there, in order to find out if they are ok. We are quite worried...


Have you heard from your friends?

Neil (nax), his husband Mr K and I joined in a group holiday in Wales for 4 days, staying in a hotel and going out on a steam train trip each day, plus a beautiful castle and garden, and a picturesque group of dams and reservoirs in the hills. Neil posted some lovely photos on fb, but here we are.

Yeah, they are jumping the high brick fence and the fence around the coop. We had been closing them in behind a solid door, but for some reason Jonathan did not do it that night.

He called me the evening of the day of the eclipse. I knew I had posted this somewhere, and thought it was in the Diner, but it was in LeBar as they were talking about the eclipse over there.

I talked to Fritz tonight and he met with the Brokie group in Wyoming to see the totality. He and I spoke about the strange light. He mentioned it to me. It's not quite like the green light that appeared, when I was in Texas, right before a bad thunderstorm. Someone said it was the ozone in the air that gave it that color.

You know it's an interesting day at work when you get a frantic call from your parents, saying they went on to Ebay and purchased an item, not realizing the computer automatically signed into your account, and the funds are coming from your checking account via PayPal. LOL

Hi, Chuck.  That is funny, and a bit frightening.  Hope your parents pay you back.

Yours is the first post I've read since getting back online, and I won't be able to do too much tonight.  Just wanted to say Hi to all.  I hope to go back and catch up a little, find out who saw the eclipse, or part of it from somewhere.  Fritz made it to Wyoming?  And Linda?

Eating a very late dinner now (half of a huge take-out chef salad which came from the restaurant where I went for an omelet about one PM, way past breakfast time.  Everything's on a late schedule today.

Sara, I read that you were having some sort of digestive problem and worried that it might be gall bladder, but then I lost track of your post because I'm only reading pages here and there.  I hope you know better by now, what the problem is, and hopefully have a plan for dealing with it and also hopefully are feeling better?

Thinking of you.

Almost 10 years ago that you and I met in San Bruno, can you believe it?

I remember being there with you and Linda, too, and with some others.

Good times.

Back on May 31 or so, it was 10 years since I met a lot of you up in Estes Park, Colorado.

I drove the big blue Ford there (my mother's car back then).  Then went back to Mom's house and told her what a great time I'd had, and what wonderful people I'd met.

Yes, I'm sure it will,  but perhaps Debbie will be back by then!

Took me a while to get in here, but good to be here now.  I've been home for a while but have had a lot of "stuff" to take care, and a lot of issues to mull over mentally so I was playing some computer card games to avoid thinking about them too much.  Also some appointments: doctors, roofer, etc.

Am still having issues with my sister and she STILL has my Colorado car, but at least she did return my phone call last night and it was good to talk to her, and we avoided controversial subjects like the car.   ::)

I spoke with Fritz last evening. He was in Missouri, close to Springfield for the night. He has not been running into any rain or bad weather, just the occasional shower. He is, of course getting lines crossed, and is headed into Kansas, and then Nebraska. He has a lot of zigzagging to do as the lines are far flung, this trip.

He said to tell everyone hello, and I will speak with him again in several day. We discussed the terrible things happening in Charlotteville. He had been following it on the radio.

Thanks for the Fritz update, Linda.

Oddly enough, I was traveling at the time of Charlottesville and didn't have a radio handy, so I didn't hear anything about it until after getting home, and people just assumed I'd heard.

I'll tell about the rest of the trip (the Canada part) later sometime, but I my cell phone didn't work once we crossed the border from Maine USA into New Brunswick Canada.  (We also saw Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, and we took two ferries -- the bus rolled onto the ferry and then we got off and went to one of the passenger decks to sit.  The passenger section of the ferry coming back from Nova Scotia to New Brunkswick was like being in a very upscale lounge.  Fun.)

Hello Debbie! :) Welcome back! I watched the eclipse here in NJ. We had clouds, but got enough of a hole in them to see the crescent. I'd really like to see totality. I believe Fritz made it, but Linda didn't go due to the cost of lodgings. Beautiful weather for them in Casper.

Good luck, Ingwriter! I'll keep my fingers crossed for your trains.

Not a thing. My table got delivered, so I am going to put it together. That is probably the extent of what I will do, as I am too sore to be climbing up and down the ladder, or bending over to unload boxes. I need to take a weekend off.

I'll probably stitch with my feet up.

Hi, Linda.  I wasn't sure whether you'd made it to Wyoming for the eclipse or not, but it would seem you were busy at home and stayed in place.

We were supposed to have 70% or so on the eclipse, but we couldn't see anything due to general overcast and clouds.  Neighbor girl was out with the dark square glasses though, when I went to get my mail.

I hope Fritz has a report on what he saw in Wyoming, when he gets back.


Hi, Jenny!  Good to see you here.

He's going to Wyoming to view the eclipse--with Brokies. :) I'm trying not to spend too much time thinking about the White House, TBH. The country is in sad shape and the president isn't helping. And there were terrorist attacks in Barcelona and Turku (Finland). Time to unplug and find a way to relax this weekend. I'm thinking of seeing a movie or two, as it will be too hot to enjoy being outside. Maybe the big sick and Dunkirk.


Glad you mentioned Dunkirk, Jenny.  My friends out in Pittsburgh had seen it before I got there, and said it was very good.  (What they took me to see was War For The Planet of the Apes....  :-\   :laugh:   ::) .....not really too bad, although I wouldn't have picked it myself.)

The man who is renting my house in Colorado had said back in June that he likes war movies, so when I called there after getting home, I asked if he'd seen Dunkirk, but he said no, they would probably watch it when it came on TV sometime.  I was thinking of asking my friend here if he'd be interested in seeing it, but I doubt it....we probably are going to a Trenton Thunder baseball game, though, because he had tickets left to use before the end of the minor league season.

Let me know what you think of Dunkirk if you do see it.  Maybe you and I could see some movie before I leave town again....I'll be here until early October, and will have roof and siding jobs going on on my house for most of September.

Hi Jenny!
No, I am not, as I could never find a place to stay that was under $350 a night. I refuse to pay that much for a place to sleep.

I started about 18 months ago trying to find a place, and every place said they do not take reservations more than a year in advance. When I called all over exactly a year in advance (to the day) they were already all booked. So I was fighting a losing battle.

Same here, Linda.  I was sorry not to see you and Fritz (if you had gone), and Chuck if he had gone, but I think it's just as well and wouldn't have fit into my schedule anyway, the way everything else turned out.  I was just getting home last weekend and glad to be resting....if you can call it resting, but at least not traveling.

I did not know this. The softer rock groups I liked were Three Dog Night, Chicago, The Moody Blues, The Association, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Eagles.


The smaller groups and individuals are Bee Gees, Captain and Tennille, The Carpenters, Jim Croce, Loggins and Messina, The Mamas & the Papas, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Seals and Croft, Simon and Garfunkel, Steely Dan, Cat Stevens.

Me too, for all of your softer rock groups, Linda.  Especially the Moody Blues, because they don't seem to make everyone's "list," but really appealed to me. 

I'mss o-so on some of the smaller groups and individuals on your list (like The Carpenters, although they were a favorite of my Dad's), and I liked some of the others (Mamas and Papas, Seals and Crofts, Bee Gees).  Of all the ones on that second list of yours, Simon and Garfunkel had the most influence on me, I loved them and listened to their albums over and over.

Our tastes are quite similar, Linda. :) Not identical, but there's a lot of overlap. My list would not be complete without the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Carole King, James Taylor and Pete Seeger. I also like the Beach Boys (in specific circumstances).

Definitely the Beatles, although I was late to their party.  Judy Collins, now that you mention it, was a big favorite.  And most of the Beach Boys.

Fun to look back on these songs and singers.

I only once went to a pop concert - Cliff Richard and the Shadows, in Edinburgh! Not that I was a huge fan but it was fun.

When was that? 60s or 70s?

Rick and I attended these concerts: In the 70's Three Dog Night, Chicago, Moody Blues, Joni Mitchell, and Paul McCartney and Wings in the early 90's

Oh, and I attended an Edgar Winter concert with my friend Michael, from Houston. We took Mescaline right before the concert. Made it much more interesting.  8)

Finished another chapter.

Tomorrow I'll travel by train to the Harz region (for an important book lecture and a concert on Saturday) and will be a victim, on both ways, of the ongoing train problems and rail barrings.

Meaning I'll need 8 hours tomorrow and Sunday - instead of 5 - each way.

Hi, Linda.  It's late here, but it's been that kind of a day.

I do remember going to a Joni Mitchell concert in Denver when I was in my early 20's.  That may have been the one we started watching at Red Rocks Amphitheater, then it got rained out and we saw the rest of it in the downtown arena when it was rescheduled.

In all, we saw five or six "harder rock" groups in downtown Denver, but by now I can't remember which ones.  We did see Eric Clapton, at some point.

It may have been the same concert tour for Joni Mitchell, because I was around the same age.

It is much later for you. I haven't been sleeping well. I hyperextended my left knee (the one with arthritis) last weekend when going up and down a ladder, and it has just been getting worse. So today I put heat and a brace on it and kept off of it as much as possible. I kept it elevated too.

Hi Debbie!! Welcome home! ♥

So sorry you are still having issues with your sister.

Hi and thanks, Linda.

Yes, it's up and down with her, I'm really not sure what's going on.  Part of it is that her husband's car is still having intermittent issues with the Check Engine light, and I can understand this, and if she had just asked permission to keep my car longer, or said she'd appreciate it, I really wouldn't mind.

But we had an argument when I was in the hotel in Pittsburgh after the trip.  She made it sound like she and her husband had just DECIDED for themselves that it would be more convenient for them to keep the car, and better for the car (her husband "washed it four times already" in four weeks.)   ::)   

And instead of saying they needed the car, she made up excuses involving my renter (who's my friend, sort of)....basically, that it would be more convenient for him if she kept my car (so he wouldn't have to drive it, which is something I'd asked him to do, drive it every week or so to keep it running well).  My sister doesn't think he's paying enough rent as it is, so she really cares about "relieving his burdens" (which he's taking on in order to qualify for the lower rent)?  Or another of her excuses is that my renters have a lot of family come over, so she's making more parking space for them at my house by keeping my car at her house.  Nobody asked her to get involved in my dealings with my renters!  And my car belongs at my house, unless myself and my renters decide between us that it should be otherwise!  And I just paid $1,700 for a new A/C compressor for that car, partly because sister griped that the A/C didn't work in June, and she's getting the benefit of the summer with good A/C and hasn't offered to split the cost of fixing the A/C.  GRRR!

Oh, well. At least my renter is doing a really good job of taking care of my house....pruning, cleaning the gutters, plans to get up on the roof to cut down a drooping tree branch, thinks the roof is in better condition than I had thought earlier in the year, but he'll look it over more carefully when he does get up on the roof to cut down that tree branch, etc.

Sorry about your knee, Linda.  I did read that you had been working too hard, with boxes and a table and picking up concrete blocks.  Didn't realize there was a ladder involved, too.

Yes, it's very late here.  Since it's after midnight, I may peek at Friday's "Daily Challenges" in the Microsoft card games (there will be five) and see if I can do any of the Easy ones, or at least see what there will be to do tomorrow.

I wonder what her issues really are with all of this? Is she upset that she didn't buy out the house and put a renter in it and you did and are making some money on it? She is definitely taking advantage of the whole situation, and I hope she does not make it a bad situation between you and your renter. You need to put your foot down and have her return the car. Sounds like she wants to get a free car out of it.

Sounds like she wants to get a free car out of it.

No, I don't think she's upset about not having a renter herself, because neither she nor my brother wanted to be a landlord.  And she knows I'm basically renting "at cost" for the time being, and not making much of a profit, because I wanted this person in particular to be my renter because I knew him and knew I would be able to trust him and communicate with him, and also because I knew he and his girlfriend needed a good place to live...they hated living in a bad apartment, whereas my house/yard is perfect for their grandkids, etc.  When I was "proposing" the rental to him, and negotiating the terms, I told him I thought it could be a "win-win" situation for me and for him, because he would be the "caretaker" for the house, and I could never keep it myself (at all, but especially living out of town) without somebody like that living there.  And I'm pleased with the way things are working out.  Eventually the rent will go up but there's a lot of work to be done on the house in the meantime, and he's helping a lot with that.

I also hope sister doesn't make a bad situation between me and my renter (and I at times was afraid that that was what she was trying to do, just for spite).  I still don't understand if she's subconsciously trying to come between me and my renter,  somehow.  I had told her, "They're probably wondering where the car is."  When I talked to him on Monday, he wasn't too concerned, and said, "I just assumed you knew where it (the car) was."  Actually, for most of my vacation, I just assumed that she had returned the car....so, surprise! 

I do have reason to possibly suspect spite, although that may not be the case.  For some reason my sister has taken a dislike to my renter (and to some of the terms I gave him, such as bringing some boxes over before the actual start of the lease....she said SHE never could do that when she rented an apartment.  But this isn't a typical apartment rental.  It's the house of someone he knew previously, and I'm the owner and can let him do whatever I want to let him do.  Not my sister's business.  And also on the personal side:  she said she was so tired of hearing his Texas  "twang" when he stood at the back door talking to me for quite a while before leaving,one day  when she was visiting and he brought some boxes and clothes over before the official move-in date.  I told sister (on the phone, since then) "I was the other half of that conversation," as in the expression "it takes two to tango," meaning she shouldn't blame him for being there and talking to me, when I was the one keeping him talking or even encouraging him to talk.  Maybe she's jealous somehow.  Of him, for getting my attention?  Of me, for getting his attention?  Who knows, it's so complicated to unravel.

Somehow it partly goes back to what she said about not liking that he was my mother's nurse.  Some resentment there.  One of my Pittsburgh friends had an "Aha!" moment when I told him that, and said maybe this nurse-now-renter had spent more time with my mother at the end than my sister had, and maybe seeing him makes her feel guilty about not having gone to see our mother more, and then Mom suddenly died.  That could be part of it.  Guilt about Mom.

And it partly involves what she asked me one time: whether he "had a temper."  That was after (1) she wanted to come into "his" house to get my car keys, and (2) before that, after she'd blocked his parking place (and refused to back up as I'd asked her to) when he came home from work.  She said he came in "seething" about his parking place being blocked by her car, but I honestly didn't notice any temper, maybe he was a little aggravated but nothing serious, and he and his girlfriend and I went out to dinner that evening, after my sister left, and everything was fine, he was in a great mood.  This was after they lived in the house, and right before I came home to PA. 

But sister seems to be holding things about his personality against him, or using them as excuses.  At least, she's made it fairly clear to me (in my opinion, anyway) that she doesn't like him too much, even though she told me she really liked him the first time she met him up at the nursing home, when Mom was in the hospital ICU and nurse-now-renter was so glad to see us and so concerned about Mom.  But I'm suspecting that this "temper" question may be another reason why she doesn't want to make the trip out to my/their house to return my car when I'm not there and she might encounter the renter.  Is she afraid of him?  That seems ludicrous; he's such a cheerful and gentle person.  If he does have a temper, it's certainly not the mean or violent kind.  Or is she embarrassed to see him again now, after the trouble she's caused?

Sorry for such a long reply.  I guess the situation is still bothering me.

At least yesterday my sister and I agreed that it's time to close our joint checking account, which we had opened to get funds together and pay Mom's bills until the estate checking account was open.  That will be one less "tie that binds" that we have to deal with.  We still have to be civil enough with each other to continue being co-executors of Mom's estate, until it is all settled (including the Texas property).  I would put my foot down more about my car, except that I don't want to send sister off on another hysterical rant which will keep us from working together on the practical matters.

Well, good night.  I see you're long gone, Linda, but hope to see you tomorrow.  I have to get some sleep because I have a hair appointment at noon, and a headache now.
