Here is hoping you fill your day with love and joy...what a great day you have for a birthday. Well, it is a beautiful day here in middle Georgia...hope it is where you are, too.

I have a short day most Fridays but I think today will be full to the top!

The kids are coming tomorrow for dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage. Hope I remember how to cook it. I don't cook too much lately!

Have a great day all of you.

Anne

Loretta, happy birthday! I hope it's a great one and many more to come.

I'm supposed to go to a strawberry festival this afternoon, but may opt out. I either have bites or hives and they are just so itchy. If bites, it was when I did my last, and hopefully final, raking on Wednesday.

Verleen, happy for you that you've been enjoying your family. How lucky is that to have present and past DH's to wait on you.

Wishing Loretta a Very Happy Birthday today!!

Hello to Gladys, Anne, Julie, Mary, and hoping you are under some medical care for your flare up, Lainey.

Waving at the rest of our "gang".

Always keeping Jezzie on my mind, and Verleen too, cyber hugs.

How is your foot/toe now, Begete?

I'm off to get butt back on the bike. Lots of rain here, worms for the robins, snow tonight.

Good morning and a very Happy Birthday to Loretta.


So sorry about the flare up getting worse, Lainey.

Hi Mary, Sorry about that snow, rain and cold.

Julie, hopefully it's just bites that will respond well to some Hydrocotrisone cream. Hope you can make it to the festival.

Hi Anne, oh sure, you will remember how to cook corned beef and cabbage. Have fun with the gang.

Gladys, sorry about that heavy fog. Fog here too, but it lifted by 8 AM.

Nothing much planned here. Just laundry, changing beds and a quick trip to the grocery store.

Loretta. Hope it's a fun filled day.

Doris - thanx for asking. Hard to explain. This surgery to remove part of the nail was just an interim measure because when I have the spurs removed in both toes, that's a full operating room procedure and I won't be able to walk for a month or more. With the part of nail gone, you can see the skin formerly underneath pushing up where the spur is.....so not sure I will be able to wait til after gardening season for the full surgery. You know how passionate I am about my gardening, and once I learned what the real problem was, I wanted to delay being immobile. So though I am moanin and groanin, it's really my own fault.

Verleen - good to see you here again. You were missed.

Regards to everyone else. Have a nice day.

Yep, Loretta is our insperation, and proof that walking every day works wonders on the body and soul...............just one foot after the other, no special, fancy, shoes, clothes, or machines required. The biggest part is DOING it

Of course, Linda also shows us the wonders of walking and wandering every day, too.


Off to do some chores and figure out supper, stuffed bell peppers, I think.

Waving at you guys...............


Dory Do

Hi all!
Happy Birthday Loretta! Have a super day!
My tulips are two inches high! Woo hoo! Can't wait for it to green up, beautiful weather but still dull brown everywhere.
Trying to talk DH into doing something - like take in a parade - on Saturday! We have a little town named Green Isle just down the road. A pocket of the Irish in this mostly German Community. I know they have green beer, that may be all the further we get. My brother in law is from there!
Hoping everyone has a great day and good weekend!
Coleen

Afternoon.... Happy Birthday Loretta. Enjoy your day.

Lainey, I hope you get that flare-up checked out.

Babette, sorry to hear about your toe. Perhaps it is best to skip one spring's gardening.

The sheriff's deputy, who responded to my fall along with the EMTs, stopped by to see how I was doing. Since I was in bed, he just talked with Rich. He said he and the EMTs were discussing my fall. They felt it was the worse they have ever seen. Shouldn't I get some kind of medal? That was nice of him to stop by.

Back to bed with me.

THANKS FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES.

I had a great day. Leah was off school today so we shot some basketball. She was giving me some good tips. Then we went for some ice cream.

Helped out at the Fish Fry tonight, not much of a crowd tonight but I was glad to get home early.

A day late and a dollar short Loretta but hope you had a great birthday.

Good heaven's Babette, those toes don't sound good at all. Maybe get it done now and over with so you can be back on your feet by the end of May.

Lainey, not sure what kind of flare up you are having but feel better soon.

Verleen, good golly girl, you must have fallen head over heels?? Are you healing ok?

Hi Doug, Doris, Glenda, Linda, SuSun, Gladys and Julie Ocali.
Hi to all the rest that I've yet to meet.

I must admit it's been fun coming back and seeing so many friends and mostly all of them for the past 10 years.
