Good Thursday Morning, Dear Porchies,
Time for a new one. Be sure to go back to read the posts from Granni and Star on the last Porch. I slept more than six hours straight through last night. While six hours isn't long enough, the sleep quality was great. The winds aloft carried red tide inland yesterday. Just going to take trash to the dumpster left me breathless. If it ain't one thing, it's another. No wonder I can never recover. Whine, whine, whine.
I got the Final Jeopardy question again last night. Woo Hoo! Claudia's Mom is doing better on her new med and ate a good lunch yesterday. She enjoyed the music at the Bush funeral. Nancy rolled her mailbox out to the road. The plow driver wiped it out and the ground is frozen so she had to set the post in a tub of cement and roll it out to the road on a dolly. She was left with a bad infection after back surgery and walks with a cane and sometimes a walker. I don't know how she takes care of her little house and property in rural Michigan by herself. Her kids are nearby but it seems to me that she helps them more than they help her. We feel blessed to have one another as we go through life's stressful times. I also feel so blessed to have all you Porchies here.
Granni, you certainly put a lot of time and work in on the singing. I admire you for it. I know it brings smiles and joy to those who hear you. Things sound positive with DD. Perhaps not talking about those contentious things is helping her to feel safer making contact. It's sweet of you to offer to help her buy scrubs. I hope the meds are helping too and that she stays on them. I pray for her daily and ask Saint Dymphna to watch over her. Glad to hear from you. It would be easier, I think, to post from your phone to get the pic. You can upload the pics to the computer but using the phone would eliminate that step. Not sure how you get the pic into the post. Perhaps Duckie can help. When I want to include a pic, I take it with my tablet and just post from that.
Star, you have put so much work into the garden and it sounds as though you are really reaping the bounty now. Home grown veggies taste so much better than those from the store. No comparison. Birds carry all kinds of serious infectious diseases. Down here, the govt. keeps chickens to monitor whether they get sick. Back in the '50's my Mom worked with a woman whose husband helped a friend clean out a barn where birds had been nesting and pooping. He got sick right afterward with something like CFIDS and was bedridden and in pain. Docs never figured it out. I don't know what ever happened to him. He was very young. So good to hear from you.
Hope everydooby has a good day.
