    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Gorgeous pic Ginger!

    Horrendous drive home from work last night! It was snowing and blowing so hard that I couldn't tell where the road was. I nearly drove into a field! After that, I just tried to keep my car between the telephone poles!

    Sunny but cold this morning but only 12°F.....Brrrr! Supposedly, another storm on the way tomorrow.

    Another 24 please and thank you!

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Pauly, thanks for asking about Mrs QW. There are good days and some not so good, lots of frustration. We’re thankful though that she doesn’t have the tremors that are common with Parkinson’s and is still able to do most things, including driving. We’re both sick of winter and are looking forward to our escape to Mexico next month.

    Again the warm up in our weather is a couple of days away. In the meantime, it’s getting even colder. Not sure if it’ll be a treadmill day or a walk at the track. Either way, Jessie misses out for the 4th day in a row.

    Have a great af Friday everyone!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Thank you for sharing your stunning landscape, Ginger! It’s a treat to see such beauty.

    I way over did it on this knee trying to go to a basketball game with HB and his bro & wife the other night, and have been in a lot of pain.
    I dug out my old external knee brace from 2005, and so have found a way to be able to hold it together and get around a little better without so much pain. Such a relief! My surgeon was in surgery yesterday and my PT (a liaison to my surgeon) was out sick yesterday, so don’t know what he thinks yet. I don’t have the strength to confront another fourth surgery on this same knee yet anyways as still trying to recover from the last one, so will just have to go back to using an external brace and being somewhat lame I guess. I’ve cried my tears, and not much else I can do.

    I’m thrilled for you that the cortisone injection has given you relief, QW!

    I saw an episode of “Anne with an E”, Dill! This version is a much more realistic one, as it shows that the child would rightly be touched & traumatized from her abusive past.
    Have you ever watched “Call the Midwife”? I just love that show, because I love realistic period pieces too.

    I guess you would have to keep your truck running a lot in that kind of cold, Cowboy; and then that eats into your profits! So you have lots of work, but it’s not that profitable.

    I called Merry Maids in today. I tried to clean this house myself yesterday before company comes in this weekend, but it was just too painful.

    Need another 24 please!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    There’s been a lot discussion about the TV series Anne with an E and Anne of Green Gables. For those who haven’t visited Prince Edward Island to see the homestead, consider putting it on your bucket list.

    The Island is beautiful, the people friendly and the fresh seafood spectacular. Writing this I can almost taste the clam chowder at the North Cape lighthouse restaurant! Or Malpeque oysters, less than 2 hours out of the water. And don’t get me started on lobster!

    Slo, sorry that you’re having yet more issues with your knee. Hope they get resolved soon! Smart idea to call in Merry Maids. I’m trying to convince Mrs QW that we should do the same.

    DA7AE7E7-7BD0-4DBB-B685-3D4F3500EDF3.jpg. Good morning and glad we are all headed in a better direction! Slo, I’m so sorry about that damned knee. That has to be so disappointing. Remember your recovery is still quite new and there will probably be improvement in the months to come. See what your doctor says. Also I LOVE Call the Midwife. I actually ordered the 4 book series from amazon. Heading out the to zoo today with the kids. Hope everyone has a great day. Another 24 for me please and thank you.

    E2E10215-5FBE-4F6C-B39F-2CE2B5A28942.jpg Just wanted to share a picture that I colored yesterday. This free app has been the best thing I have ever done on my Ipad, other than finding this group. This coloring provides me hours of relaxation which is what I truly need. Just wanting to share in case someone is looking for a cool way to relax.

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Rava, double thanks today! Loved both the quote and picture.

    Slo, I also like Call the Midwife. Unfortunately Mr. D never took to it so if I want to watch it I have to squeeze it in on my own time, not our shared tv time.

    QW, thanks you for the extra info on Anne. Mr. D and I were wondering where in Canada it was set. I think perhaps we will make use of our newly renewed passports by taking a trip to Prince Edward Island. What is the best time of year to go? Mr. D recently gave in and addressed his chronic knee problem. He was relieved to hear that he was not needing surgery and that cortisone injections will do the trick. So far they have and he is well pleased! Now he's going to seek relief on his right shoulder. The doc suggested he try strengthening exercises but so far Mr. D is getting nowhere fast with that. He believes it is a use injury. Mr. D does a lot of physical work, mostly with the firewood these days. Yesterday he wasn't able to lift the wood to put it in the truck so my son did the lion's share with me and our granddaughter helping.

    24 more for all of us please!

    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

    Marvelous job on the quotes this week @Rava! Thanks! And loved the picture you colored! I can see why it could be very relaxing!

    And that picture you took should be on a postcard as Polly said @Ginger999! What an array of colors!

    What did you decide about the new job offer @paulywogg? I think you’re strong enough to handle the change, and it might be the best thing that can happen for you!

    Have any of you watched someone drink, or see it on a commercial, or tv show, and actually “taste” what they were drinking? It happened to me last night as I was watching a movie! That’s the first time that I can think of that it’s happened to me. I was watching a movie and there were two guys bowling, one had a rather bushy mustache and he picked up a mug of beer and took a good swallow. When he put the glass down, he had that “foam mustache” look and it really hit me! I could actually “taste” the beer and feel how cold it was. Scary, very scary! My next thought was I should run down and pick up some Budweiser Prohibition beer to satisfy that yearning for the “taste”. My next thought was, no, don’t go there because once you get the taste, you’ll start missing the buzz and then the cycle will start all over again.

    I know they say that relapse begins long before you take the first drink and I’ve got to remind myself of that. And my experience last night also reminded me of just how cunning alcohol can be and that I still need to be careful and not let my thoughts get in the way of my sobriety…

    Quitting and staying quit isn’t easy, it’s learning a whole new way of thinking. It’s accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
