    Hello on Sunday, the Day of Rest:

    Sorry you got hit with a 24-hour bug, Mick! Hope another day or two of rest gets you back to 100%.
    Food for thought in the jokes! I like the Nacho Cheese and Hokey Pokey ones.

    Lav, your kitty is potty-training! My grandson regressed, and is no longer potty-training. He was pretty good at pooping in the potty, too! Hopefully they will get back at it with him soon, as he will be 3 in January.
    How did your brother do with his surgery? Did he have to have an amputation? So your dad and both brothers all have/had peripheral vascular disease??

    Chicken noodle soup is so healing, TG! And you found two people who really need it.

    Yeah, best just to take a break from the cooking and let your son take a turn, PQ. I’m glad he didn’t let the ingredients that you got him for the pasta salad go to waste!

    I’m home now from traveling to go see young daughter’s swim meets at college. It was good to see her again! And see some of her world at college, and meet a few other swim parents, and see the grandkids too. And at least it was a two-fer: two swim meets for one travel time and $$ for gas & hotel room. I’m exhausted though. I get tired so quickly these days. I just ordered a B-complex vitamin supplement to take a few times per week; see if that will perk me up.
    I got a first floor hotel room, and I watched the meets from the pool deck (much to my daughter’s embarrassment) instead of trying to climb into the balcony with my walker. And I discovered that letting my hair go gray and using a walker is a shoe-in for getting a senior citizen discount!

    Take care, my friends, and have a good day.

    Re: 13 Nov

    Good evening friends,

    Yep the cold air is moving in, tonight it’s going down to 30 degrees. I feel bad for the outside cats but this is what they prefer. Daisy & I will stay inside haha!
    Just had a call from my sister-in-law, my brother is doing well in iCU today. PT had him up & out of bed 2X today & he will be transferred as soon as a bed opens up in the hospital. He apparently was cut from groin all the way to his ankle, ugh. That’s a lot, more than I’ve ever seen for a femoral bypass. I’m thinking his blockage must have started up higher than originally thought. Anyway, he’s doing OK.
    I’m working on lace ornaments, need to fill up my wooden tree that i take to the craft fairs this time of year.

    Mick, happy to hear you are on the mend. A 24 hr bug can really knock you on your a$$. Glad you are improving
    Chicken soup really does wonders for the body, keep at it for your own good.

    Cyn, good to hear from you & I imagine you are saving & comforting many with your chicken soup, that’s so nice.
    Save some time 7 energy for yourself too, please.

    PQ, thanks for the cold weather, Lol. It’s been so ridiculously warm here, we knew it would get cold eventually.
    I hope you’re enjoying some milder weather now & the old snow has melted.

    Slo, potty training kids seems so different these days, not sure why. My grandkids did pretty well, the boys are always a bit slower picking it up for whatever reason. And my granddaughter never once asked if it was oK to pee in my kitchen trash can haha! I’ll never forget that one!!
    You do a lot of traveling so of course you’re tired. I take my B-Complex daily, makes a big difference I think. I used to be so embarrassed about the senior discounts, now I don’t care anymore. I actually have an AARP membership LOl. Remember you won’t be using that walker forever & I wouldn’t have tried climbing onto the stands either, geez. Yep, PVD has struck my dad & two older brothers. My younger brother & I are kind of paranoid now but doing what we can get ahead of the family disease. My dad & oldest brother also had cardiac complications, not good.

    Hello to the rest of the folks & wish everyone a nice night!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick....glad you're starting to feel better. Give yourself some time to recoup, you don't have to make up your down time all at once. Will you have to give Jeeves medication daily or just when his stomach acts up? Keep up with the chicken noodle soup. It was a quiet day for me and no work hassles.

    Slo...glad you were able to see your daughter's swim. I think watching from the pool deck was a smart idea. I take vitamin B daily and can sure tell when I've missed one. You take it slow recovering as well.

    Lav...yes, it's been nice and mild here. Such a nice change. We're supposed to get some flurried towards the end of the week but nothing much. Just as well it's my craft sale Fri/Sat. The snow manages to turn to slush and then it all freezes overnight. I think it's here to stay. Glad to hear your brother is doing well. That was quite the surgery. I hope he gets a bed soon, I've spent many hours in emergency before. Right now the average wait time for a bed is 2 days! Yikes!

    Well, my potatoes are boiling over so I better go deal with things. Have a good night all...PPQP

    Re: 13 Nov

    hiya all...how are we today then? hope all is well.weather is a little bit weird today ,it actually looks like its going to snow..15.30pm and getting dark already Rabbits are doing good ,Jeeves although I keep saying it ,he is doing superb .On that note ,I feel good today ,not 100%but a lot better thank goodness.

    hiya ppqp...hows you then today? hope all is good .glad you had a quiet weekend ..Yep the noodle soup worked a wee treat .hope your change in weather isnt an indication that the snow is on its way over here .Yes Jeeves will get meds daily ,irrespective, whether his gut is playing up or not ..more proactive than reactive

    hiya Lav ,how are you doing?hope you are doing ok?glad your brother is doing ok yep noodle soup works a treat ...pretty bland but its nourishment.My friend lost his cat the middle of September. it was found alive and well 31 miles away yesterday.
    Potty training is harder for boys its a fact of life ...from an early age they acknowledge they are going to be in the crap!!Talking about senior discounts ...I got the form today for my free bus pass ..travel on the trams and buses..like you at one time i wouldnt have bothered but my thinking now is they would soon be quick enough to take it from me so I will have anything on offer.I set myself a challenge ,,to get a christmas themed jersey for me and her majesty from the charity shops ..as opposed to spending about £25 each on one....success 2 for £18 .hope you have a good day.

    hiya slo....hows you then today?if you can make use of the senior citizen stuff then go for it ...refuse nothing but blows!we all get tired as we get older ,but the brain doesnt accept it ..even when the body says what are you doing? as long as you take care.

    hiya teegee you doing ok?


    pauly how are you doing?


    What’s green and has wheels?

    Grass. I lied about the wheels.



    A communist joke isn’t funny…

    … unless everyone gets it.



    What’s green, fuzzy, and would hurt if it fell on you out of a tree?

    A pool table.



    Why can’t you hear a Pterodactyl go to the bathroom?

    Because the pee is silent.



    Cosmetic surgery used to be such a taboo subject.

    Now you can talk about Botox and nobody raises an eyebrow.



    What do you call someone who immigrated to Sweden?

    Artificial Swedener.



    I’m terrified of elevators…

    … so I’m going to start taking steps to avoid them.

    Mae all -

    A tired Treegirl checking in... sending love to all..,

    Goodness, so much going on...
    Mick I hope that you continue to feel better, that virus sounded pretty harsh.

    Lav, good job on kitty training! SO sorry to hear about your brother’s surgery... sending healing thoughts for a good outcome...

    SLO- great job getting to see the swim meet! Glad you went ahead with plans. Take care and take it slow for all the healing you are asking your body to do!!! PS, I let my hair go natirally grey years ago, and have never regretted it. If people have a problem, that’ their issue... I love it, and get a lot of compliments!

    PPQ, uuugh, you could take back a couple of degrees... yesterday we went from 70 to 22 F... a little sudden for me! Flurries today... I don’t mind, I like winter, but the suddenness!

    PS - Mick, one clue from the (short) NY Times Crossword puzzle today was “what city is between Manchester and York”? (I had to look it up, but found the the answer was “Leeds”!) I won’t forget that clue again...

    Wishing all our friends well -

    Re: 13 Nov

    Hello friends,

    Daisy is sitting on my lap making typing near impossible, ha ha. I finally got her to try some canned kitten food today, mixed a little formula in & spoon fed her, lol. Hopefully tomorrow she will feed herself.
    Pretty cold here as well but I honestly like it much better than the summer heat.
    I’m trying to work on Christmas lace ornaments but my helper is not much help!!

    PQ, our hospitals are in such a poor state right now. Staying well is vital. Nurses have left in droves since the start of the pandemic, sick of being overworked, underpaid & basically abused. You can’t run a hospital without nurses, can you?? All the men in the business suits have screwed upour hospital systems trying to operate them like businesses, it’s disgusting. God help us when we need help.
    Enjoy your milder temps while you can

    Mick, wow, do you think that cat walked 31 miles on it’s own? Someone must have picked it up along the way, crazy.
    Nice you found your Christmas sweaters at a good price. I’ve never actually had one, will have to think about that, haha.
    No news on my brother yet today so I hope he’s settled somewhere comfortably. This is the brother who hasn’t talked to me for probably 15 years, he has issues but I still want him to be OK.

    Cyn, hope you’re working in some rest moments for yourself. We all need to be careful this time of year to not over estimate our abilities to get stuff done.
    Sounds like you are having sweatshirt weather too, sit back & enjoy it before the snow starts.

    Hello to all & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: 13 Nov

    MAE ALL...what a day! Everybody wanting to change their event times, days and rooms. Even had one client pencil in a change to the time on their rental agreement, didn't bother to adjust any of the costs though. Instructors wanting to extend their programs into December, and don't get me started on the craft sale vendors, does nobody actually read the information they are sent. To top it off my pay cheque was not in my bank account this morning. Welcome to Monday.

    Mick...been going to work in the dark but am still able to get home in daylight. Not for long though. Had a feeling daily meds was now the norm. Glad you're feeling better and you just keep on saying how well Jeeves is doing. I'm glad it was a quiet weekend too, needed my wits for today. LOL I think it's going to be an interesting weather pattern this winter.

    TG...nope, sorry, no returns. I hear you about the sudden change, 77 - 25 F here. I much prefer being eased into winter. At least we can look forward to chinooks. You pace yourself and look after yourself.

    Lav...ah, I can just picture Daisy on your lap. Keep her away from the great embroidery machine. Yay, step #2, tried kitten food. Now, a pic of you spoon feeding her would have been nice. LOL Our health care in Alberta has been under stress for years and Covid only brought all the issues to the forefront. Nursing salaries had been frozen for years and after 2 years of Covid the government wanted to decrease their wages. OMG I'm surprised every one of them didn't walk out.

    It's going to be a busy week as all the Christmas decorations go up before the craft sale. Taking deep breaths and repeating this too shall pass. Have a restful evening all...PPQP

    Re: 13 Nov

    mae all how are we today then? hope all is swell .We are in the middle of a storm at the moment ...surprised eh?really blowing and raining .Was actually going to do some work outside but that aint happening ...

    hiya tee gee ..yep its Leeds .What have you been up to?I feel a lot better ..whatever it was certainly put me down.you take good care of yourself .

    ppqp how did work go then? hope it sort of calmed down for you.more importantly ,was your money in the bank.Yep you will soon be in bat mode ...doing everything in the dark.Just remember ..the issues about the decorations etc will soon be consigned to history irrespective of the outcome .You can only do your best.

    A new task Lav ...teach Daisy to type!Like you I prefer the cold to the heat.Our hospitals are pretty helpless too.There are massive gaps and understaffing ,and they are filling those gaps with agency and banked shifts ...a short term fix .it means the health service dont have to pay pensions etc.They have been paying extra money over and above to encourage both agency and bank nurses to work extra shifts .The govt has now removed that ,so those staff will not work more than they need to.In addition it was on the news this morning ..we have a lot of foreign nursing students over here studying to become nurses .They have been told to vacate their accommodation ..for what? to put the migrant refugees in ..most of whom are just here to see what they can get .WTF?? Then you get the disparity between nurses and junior doctors ...a nurse is on about starting 20k...is rostered and has to work all the hours God sends to make ends meet.A general practitioner doctor is on 110k and works 37hrs pw.the whole system is broken ,but it seems like a whole world issue.
    hope your brother is ok

    hiya Slo how are you today?hope all is well with you

    right folks hope you have a good day

    Re: 13 Nov

    It’s snowing outside! Winter is here.

    Yesterday I drove my sister to her MRI appointment for her foot, and my mother to her eye appointment to try to get fitted for custom contacts hopefully in lieu of corneal transplant surgery. It was a nice day out. Mom, sister, & I went out for lunch together. And when I brought Sister back to Brother’s house (where she’s living now because she can’t climb the stairs into & out of her apartment), I was able to visit with Brother and a nephew a bit, and go see 14-yr.-old niece’s choir concert.
    I’m sad to see that my brother is still drinking, on the sly.
    Mother thought me & sister looked ridiculous with our twin mobility aids. Meanwhile our mother is active and very mobile. Something is backwards about that picture!
