    Re: 26 june

    Sweaty greetings all, haha!!

    I think I’ve had enough summer already, geez! The temp inside the greenhouse hit 101 today with the doors & windows open & fan running in there. I feel sorry for the plants in there.

    PQ, glad you’re caught up with work even if it is missing a detail or two. I’ve been running ice & cool snacks out to the chickens, so far they are OK. Tomorrow is supposed to be the last day of this heatwave, I sure hope so anyway.

    Cyn,. Surprised to hear it’s gotten hot where you are, wow! I guess there’s no escaping the heat for most of the country.
    Our politicians need to get serious about climate change.

    Det, I just have to say that I wore green eye shadow back in the 70’s when everyone else was wearing blue, haha! My eyes are green so it just made sense.
    Love the animal pics too, all the same wildlife we see around here
    Glad to hear the teen is cooling her tools & getting on with important stuff like math (my least fav subject in school). Good luck with your meeting, hope you get what you need there.

    Mick, a 2 hour traffic jam would drive me crazy, haha! My patience wears thin rather quickly for stuff like that.
    Jeeves found an unusual friend, funny

    Hello to Pauly, check in with us OK?
    Hello to Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    TG...I guess nobody is escaping this heat. I hope all the politicians wake up and get serious about climate change. Today was a bit frustrating with the prog coord, biting my tongue not to say I've answered that question 3 times already, are you not listening!

    Det...good job on being able to "unplug" and finding some pretty mild weather, we're all jealous. I love the girly makeup job, there's a possible career for her.

    Mick...how do you get stuck in a traffic jam while out walking. LOL So are you supporting Germany? I remember all the owl pics from early days. Nice to see Jeeves has a new friend.

    Lav...most of our farmers crops are now burnt and I won't even go over to the community garden. We've still got 4 days of this heat! We actually beat the high temp for Las Vegas. Unbelievable. I've got a Dr.'s appointment tomorrow, my foot is still swelling and now there's a red rash forming above the ankle. I suspect I may have an infection and might need antibiotics. I'm a little surprised as I have been paying attention to my feet after the last scare I had.

    Time to shut this computer down and flip the brain switch. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 26 june

    Good evening friends,

    Still hot & humid here but it ends tomorrow, thank goodness. I don’t even care about the storm warnings, anything to end this messy weather is fine with me.
    Celebrated our 48th anniversary with a burger at Applebees this evening, haha. I have no appetite for fancy food these days. Nice to just go out!

    PQ, I hope you you got your foot checked out. Do you have any history of psoriatic arthritis? Just wondering. Hope you got some help!
    I think at some point I would bite the head off of the program manager - just sayin LOL

    Mick, I hadn’t planned on a flying car in this lifetime, haha!! Interesting though
    Gassed up my car for $1.99/gal today, surprised because it was much higher a week or so ago. I don’t really go anywhere so a full tank lasts for a long while.
    Are you leaving tomorrow? I thought it was next week. I’m always confused, oh well.

    Cyn, I hope the mountain air is cooler today & you had a chance to get out & enjoy it a little.

    Pauly, c’mon & say hello

    Det, I imagine you’re as busy as a bee - good for you!

    Hello to Sam & PIe,, check in guys!

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: 26 june

    MAE ALL....so the reason I didn't post yesterday was because I was in the emergency ward from 2pm to midnight! Went to the Doc's at 1:30pm and she was thinking the swelling in my foot was an infection but was concerned about a blood clot and asked if a co-worker could take a look. He agreed and she was arranging for an ultra sound until we kept talking. Admitted that my breathing had become more laboured which I assumed was my COPD at that some times when I cough or sneeze I get a sharp pain below my rib cage. I just stand up, move around a bit, and it goes away. She said this changes everything and we can't assume it's COPD or my arthritis so she called the emergency room with what is known as a RAPID. She explained my symptoms to the Emerg Doc and he agreed I should come in. The RAPID means I can skip the line at the emergency check in and that they are expecting me. Just because you can get in quick doesn't mean everything else will be quick. So after blood work, EKG, chest xray and a CT scan the diagnosis is an infection and I'm on anti biotics. Geesh! a one stop shop I guess better safe than sorry and I feel I've completed my annual check up as well. LOL Sorry, had to get that out it was a very frustrating day and to top it off it took me 20 minutes to figure out how to get out of the parking lot. The whole hospital site is under construction.

    Mick...yup, the firebreaks were put in all through southern Alberta, unfortunately it's BC that's on fire at the moment. With record breaking 122F temps and no rain it's dangerous out there. Calgary has been breaking records left right and centre but this OMEGA system is supposed to break tonight with rain forecast for tomorrow morning. We'll all be out there "singing in the rain". Have fun on your travels.

    Lav...boy I am in a pissy mood today. The only thing I've done is go and get my anti biotic prescription filled and everyone out there are idiots. Wonder if we'll remember this heat wave when it's -40F in a couple of months. I've had 4 does and I can already feel a huge difference! Swelling has gone done and the tightness is almost gone. LOL No history of psoriatic arthritis or any rheumatoid arthritis in my family, guess I'm the chosen one. I like Applebees, I wish we had them in Alberta. The only reason the program coordinator still has her head is she's off on holidays for a week, without her laptop! YAY The boss has also headed out of town for 5 days so I don't have to put up with either of them. It is strange that every time the boss is gone so is the program coordinator. Hope you didn't get clobbered yesterday, those were some pretty ominous clouds in that pic. I'm looking forward to the cool down even if it is only for a few days.

    Hoping that no news is good news with the rest of the gang. Have a good evening all....PPQP

    Re: 26 june

    Greetings friends,

    The heatwave is over, thank goodness!!
    We’ve had several rain storms today, last night it was just thunder & lightning, no rain which is weird.

    Mick, with Covid & the cost of fuel I wonder if we should be getting the message to just stay the heck home. I surely do not want to fly anywhere right now, people are insane on the airplanes, assaulting flight attendants & making fling ‘unfriendly
    Yeah, our 48 years have been unusual but we haven’t killed one another yet so……..LOL

    PQ, down here when there’s a rapid response called it’s usually because the patient has no pulse or respirations. Glad you were seen quickly though. I imagine they were looking for a PE & things of that sort. Glad you’re starting to feel better already. So what do you think the source of the infection was? I’m always curious about stuff like that with prevention of recurrences in mind
    So your boss & program coordinator are on vacation - together?? Haha, that would be a nightmare!!! Ihope your cool down comes soon, I hate this excessive heat, I’ll take the cold, honestly.

    Hello to Cyn, hope you are doing OK.
    Hello to Pauly, Det, Sam & Pie.

    Looks like my daughter & her crew are coming over July 4th, they’ve cancelled their camping trip. They haven’t been here since Christmas, so it’s time
    Have a good night all!

    Mae all,

    Mick, good and safe journey wishes to you - hope you don't end up in another traffic jam! Love the pic of Jeeves... so funny.

    Det, so good to hear from you - great pics - and good job on going to the social media meetings... when you get it figured out, let me know, okay?

    Lav, what a fabulous "blast from the last" photo on FB, cute. So glad to hear that the cool down has finally arrived, enjoy it. Glad the chickens are hanging in, and so happy to hear the daughter and fam are coming over! Have fun...

    PPQ, poor thing - the heat and then the ER!!! What a time you've had. I guess the only god thing is that your work tormentors will be out of the office... enjoy if you can! Wishing you speedy healing...

    Pauly, sending greetings - hopwmyou will have a good holiday.

    And sending greetings to Sam and all others, be safe...

    I am working and working, that's about all to say!

    Re: 26 june

    MAE ALL...thanks for letting me vent about my ordeal on Wednesday. I'm sure not all of you really want to hear about my personal trials.

    Lav...I think the difference is this is a Rapid phone call to emergency for advice and the advantage is the Doctor in emergency has a medical history before the patient arrives. Still have no idea what the source of the infection was as there is no open wounds on my foot. Could it be a toenail fungus? My feet are not in the best condition and without being able to get a pedicure for 16 months it hasn't helped. I guess a thunderstorm rolled through here last night but I didn't hear it. Very humid out there today with warnings in place. Hope it rains soon. It'll be great to have your daughter & crew on July 4th, I can see the menu materializing already.

    TG...thanks for the wishes. Tormentors out of the office is great! You sound like you're still way too busy. Hope you can get some down time.

    No rain yet but lots of humidity today. Hopefully Saturday will see some reprieve.

    Shout out to Mick, Sam, Det, Pauly and Pi...have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 26 june

    Greetings all,

    I imagine Mick is on the road now. Make it a good trip

    Cyn, sorry the work hours are stu\ill so long. Guess you can't actually take any time off right now. Take care of yourself, you’re important too
    Yep, the wedding photo is a blast from the past & I just can’t get over the long hair on everyone back then, haha!!

    PQ, I’m thinking if you had a fungal infection the antibiotic wouldn’t be helping & actually making things worse. I don’t do any barefoot walking anymore, just in case. Things seem to happen so damn easily after a certain age, if you know what I mean. Glad you’re coming along OK. Some of. The excess humidity that was stil here this morning disappeared once the sun arrived. I know we have more rain on teh way for the weekend though. It’s always feast or famine I guess!

    Hello to the missing crew members & wishing everyone a ver safe July 4th weekend!!
    Have a good night all!
