MONDAY'S Roll Call, Jan. 28
1 Attachment(s)
Monday Monday, used to be the only laundry day, when I was "young" :laugh:

Begete 01-27-2013 10:58 PM

Monday still is laundry day for us, Doris.

Downton Abbey was so sad tonight. First time I can recalll being in tears over something that happened on TV.

Doug_H 01-28-2013 05:26 AM

Hi all

We had a nice late afternoon lunch in Las Vegas yesterday. We met with one of Jo's old classmates that she had not seen for over 35 years.

Was going to do some shopping at Costco while there but the place was a zoo so we gave that up.

Not much new going on here.


ocali 01-28-2013 06:38 AM

I'm glad that I wasn't the only one all choked up watching Downton Abbey. Stupid men! (Not you, Doug!). That 'hour' goes so fast...because the show itself is only about 50 minutes.
Hardly ever drink any coffee but one of my neighbors has the Keurig with the well to keep a large amount of water. He loves it. He buys large amounts of the individual coffees on line.

tatehouse 01-28-2013 07:51 AM

Good morning,

I am running so late this morning. Just overslept and that throws me off for the whole day.

No, I didn't vacuum. Maybe today?


Loretta V 01-28-2013 08:02 AM

Used to laundry on Saturday but have recently switched to Friday. My sister still does her laundry on Monday.

That must have been a nice reunion for Jo and her old classmate. I don't keep contact with any of them.

Rainy day here Ky. But the temperature is tolerable at 59. At least it is not snow or ice.

mykneesareback 01-28-2013 08:21 AM

How neat to meet up with a former classmate, Doug, was it elementary school?

It's 14 degrees here.

I'm glad I don't watch that Abbey show, can't stand to watch weepers anymore, but I used to cry at soaps back when I was young, I was a soap opera fan when there weren't VCR's to record them, was hard to keep up.

Later, gotta run back and get on the bike, for pete's sakes! :D

ocali 01-28-2013 08:36 AM

When I was a young housewife, I would do laundry on Monday, iron on Tuesday, dust on Wednesday, vacuum on Thursday. Can't remember the rest of the days but I always kept to that schedule. Now, I can't even remember what day it is..lol

LOL, I was a trained monkey about daily household chores too, but as I got old, I don't know what day it is anymore. Personally I don't even care.:D

Actually they grew up together.

Crazy Cat 01-28-2013 09:51 AM

Warm here finally but rainy and dreary. Hard to wake up.
I usually know what day it is (sort of have to so I don't show up to work on the wrong day, lol) but I've never had set cleaning or laundry days. I do laundry when my clothes are dirty, and dust when I'm tired of looking at dust bunnies. I'm not even sure where my ironing board is! Except for work I've never had much of a schedule, my dad is the complete opposite. He has the same meals on certain days, goes to bed and gets up at the exact same time (which is really early), etc. Takes a lot of adjustment for both of us when we go on vacation together.

Norfolk Mermaid 01-28-2013 10:08 AM

Lost my post a few hours ago. Re-boot seems to have fixed all.
Also my "G" got pulled up on the keyboard and I cannot get it to work unless I really hit it hard a couple of times. So- gettin tired of that so just add it in your mind. "Thanks".
Rainy/very dreary... ood it is a up day (even days are up & uneven numbers are down). Still cold but I am wantin ice cream ???? go fiure! Blaming it on the smokes quit!!!
"Midwife" and "Downton" were both about eclampsia which I had in my first prenancy or PRE- eclampsia I should say. Whew, uess I should have been scared. Sure am worried about Bates now- hope he survives that horrid prison to et to be with our Anna.
hope this one ets thru.

Mssarge 01-28-2013 10:15 AM

Good morning all...after a weekend of crazy weather, showers, winds,snow in the mountains, even some hail and thunder storms in the foothills, it's clearing and warming for the week. Sounds like everyone is doing well today and survived their weekend.

I think the rest of the saw was bake on Friday, shop on Saturday, and rest on Sunday! My momma kinda stuck to that old saw when I was a kid...when mopping the floors meant the ol' scrub brush and a pail of hot water, scrubbing on your knees and it took all day. I think we stopped doing that when I was about eight years old...heck, we even ironed poppa's boxers. And, of course, momma made biscuits every morning until they started selling bread in the stores; but we still made rolls for Sunday dinner.

Hope you all have a great day, stay warm and good things come your way...Ginny, hope the golfing went well...you're going to make me drag out my clubs and hit the driving range...hmm, maybe later this week if the weather holds.

p.s. Lainey, we posted at the same time...I always crave ice cream in the winter. I think it has something to do with the Vitamin D. hmmm, come to think of it, I haven't been craving it this year. Must be the D3 I'm taking and my bod doesn't need it...hmmm!

Liblady 01-28-2013 10:57 AM

80 degrees here Ladies! Sunshine and lovely.

DH is out of the Park golfing today and Mary, I had a really good time golfing yesterday, I'd say I'm up to a D+ now. DH says I'm too hard on myself, my thought is that I need to find some other lady golfers that are in "my league" but here at the Park they are all pretty good golfers, somehow I don't think I'd be a welcome partner.........yet. :)

Regarding the Keurig...............maybe I was just getting tired of the same old coffee. We always buy the darkest Folgers. Anyway, I saw where you can buy Dunkin' Donuts "dark" at Walmart so I did just that this morning, we'll see how that works. I just don't think the Keurig would be worth it for 2 people who don't drink that much coffee. (2 cups each, only in the morning)

Good grief I'm with the rest of you Downton Abbey people, that was a sad one for sure. I really dislike the parts with Bates in them, I want him out of there. And I'm guessing that the one (downstairs) boy is going to turn out gay, right? Can't remember his name.

ocali 01-28-2013 11:09 AM

I'm glad we're all 'on the same page' with Downton Abbey's plot lines. Yes, I guess the footman (Thomas?) is gay. The writers are including every possible plot in this series. Damn that haughty doctor. I would guess that Mary's husband will be the next to go. And, no one is to go near where the prostitute is working. Wonder how that will work out. It all boggles the mind........lol. Maybe Mr. Bates is really guilty?

Liblady 01-28-2013 12:15 PM

Yes, Julie, you're right about Mary's husband. He is in a play on Broadway and won't be in Season 4.

tatehouse 01-28-2013 12:40 PM

I do laundry when the hamper gets full!!

Begete are you feeling better this afternoon? Julie how are you?

Maggie is asleep...


birdlady 01-28-2013 12:55 PM

I do laundry almost every day.When DH had skin problems I washed and dressed the bed every day,after we got ac his skin problem disappeared.
70 and kind of cloudy here today with a light wind,not bad.It's another shorts day,most of Feb. will probably be colder.

ocali 01-28-2013 01:09 PM

Anne, past two days, I've had "D". Did you go thru that, too? Seems as if there's no end to this. I have cabin fever.

tatehouse 01-28-2013 02:59 PM

Julie, that is all I had for 20 days...no nausea at all...another strain I am told...It was the worst. Feel better...broth and toast...the doctor told me bananas but those didn't work at ALL...yuck.

mykneesareback 01-28-2013 03:06 PM

Oh my, "D", and bananas, yuck is right, Anne! Hope it passes through you guys soon so you can get on with life :shake:

Remember years ago, when we worried about Erika and Phil, lol...........:laugh:
While at work, we used to call up a former co-worker to find out what all the latest happenings were on the various soaps, this was before they even had those Soap magazines. Hard to believe a time like that now.

Off to the kitchen again.............gotta rub my bird.

Begete 01-28-2013 03:11 PM

Stop with the Downton spoilers!!! I am ready to murder a friend on another site who posted a URL which I read not realizing it would give away many of the happenings for this season (the season is already over in the UK) and now I know who will die and who will return.
I was not surprised that Sybil died because I already knew she would, but sure wish it had been a shock.
So no more discussion of who will or will not be back next season!! Please.

Norfolk Mermaid 01-28-2013 03:25 PM

I would say spoilers do not bother me but then again
yes they do. Knowin about Mary's husband not bein back has for sure taken some of the fun out but I would sure watch anyhow. Everythin about that proram is just so excellent.
Havin a dumpsey day here- but after all it is a MONDAY!
Mary, I take plenty of Vit. D in suppliments and in fact worry about ettin too much. My friend Anita was just taken off her D pills as test showed her levels way too hih.
Gonna read a bit.
Thanks for speakin up Beete.

ocali 01-28-2013 04:31 PM

Ok, Begete........no more about the show. But, it is all over the web even about season 4. My lips are sealed! :-)

birdlady 01-28-2013 04:35 PM

I love the no G's,Lainey,to cute.

Liblady 01-28-2013 05:04 PM

Sorry I've spoiled it for so many of you. :doh: :dunno:
Will be more careful with my postings.............

modon69478 01-28-2013 05:37 PM

I can respect Begete's request, but it does make me a little sad that we can't talk about the show with fellow fans.

mykneesareback 01-28-2013 06:52 PM

Well Michele, just visit other web sites, they are all over the place, just "search", and there you will also find tours of the place where it's filmed :) :shake:

Does anyone remember the series "Poldark", we watched that till we moved away up here, and no tv, so never found out how it ended, lol.

It's been so danged cold, we don't remember this kind of cold in all the years we have been up here, sort of "odd".

For anyone who has been to Wash. D.C. before, do you have to pay a toll to use the highways that go into the city??

Mssarge 01-28-2013 06:59 PM

Why don't you create a separate thread for your discussion of the program, then all can be happy. Those who don't want to read it can just stay away....I'm not hooked into the program, so don't mind the conversations but I can understand those who don't want to be involved in the conversation.

I saw many fights in the dorms overseas when people would spill the beans on specific programs. For some time, some programs would hit us a week or so later than things aired here in the states. And, of course, dealing with different time zones made all the difference in the world. For example, Tokyo is 14 hours ahead of Pacific Daylist savings time...the superbowl airs at zero dark thirty over there. One of my buds would make sure that he didn't hear any news reports of ball games and then watch the game when he got off work in the evening....one time one of our trouble makers caught him as he was coming into the dorm with the score....and the fight was on.

Excuse the rambling, just thought I'd mention the separate thread for your discussions....as I know enjoyment of a program can be enhanced by talking about it with your buds.

Mssarge 01-28-2013 07:19 PM

OH! I have to report...I also caved and QVC struck again....sigh! :jumpjoy: (this really is a happy dance...)

Last Sunday (week ago) David's corner had a super special on the Ninja Kitchen system and I couldn't resist. I got it today so now my Magic Bullet is obsolete and will be finding a new home. This system has the food processor, grating and slicing devices along with the bread paddles, too. So my old food processor is also out the door...I'll keep my mini one which is also my mixer and immersion blender. It also has the single serving cups and that replaces the Bullet. (I still have the Vita-Mix, but it's just too large for one person)

But that's not all...sigh! Again! This Sunday David had the Ninja Cooking system at a super price...I first saw this system about Thanksgiving time and have been checking it out ever since...I knew I'd be in trouble if I saw a good buy on it, and I did. This is a slow cooker/roaster/searing pan and also has a steam roasting ability....sigh! My slow cooker is a small one and I've been looking for a larger one but this Ninja caught my eye and this is a really good buy so I'm happy.

I know, it's hard to justify these for just myself, but I love to cook and have done it for myself for so long, I don't regret it...but I just had to confess to someone and you all fit the bill. :dunno:
