1 Attachment(s)
We have errands to run again, so need to be gone Friday morning, this time to a larger town, up hill, further away from here.

Sending best thoughts and wishes for our pals under pressure and illness on here :console:

quick check in.

I assume that's at the S.D. zoo, Begete. How long will you be in S.D? Don't forget I have a son and a daughter living there, so...just in case, let me know. When does your cruise actually leave?
"They" say we may have a frost tonight. And, here I thought that our winter was over. Had to put the heat on for a bit this morning. Of course, Progress Energy is happy about that, I'm sure.

Have the day off and, of course, lots to do -

Doctor's appt, pup's pizza party, repairman coming to the house later in the day, laundry, and lots more if there's time.

Waving to all - Enjoy your day!

Good mornin and thanks Dory Do.
Doris, your kitty namesake "Doris" (owners call her "Sweety Pie" is still the prettiest kitty in the neihborhood. She does not come around for breaky anymore but I still pet her when in Anita's back yard. Guess they are feedin her well at her home in the house behind mine and next door to Anita's house. I just love her "balirena slippers" and she is soooo svelt while her sissy Ms. SunSun and Aaunt Jane are showin a bit of middle age spread. Janie needs dental work and of course there is no money for that. I plan to try some "toddler baby food" for her as she will only eat Meow Mix. Ms. SuSun aka "Flamingo Girl" eats her daily steamed shrimp breaky. Sometimes a dinner as well but it is quite expensive but I will continue no matter what. She shares the Meow Mix at niht usually. I sure do love my irls.
Feelin sad today for our Louise and Bob. I share the colon woes with Bob and am praying so hard for him. "Cancer" changes all or it sure did for me. Ginny, you remain my idol for surviving cancer and keeping me from the darkest heart of the black poetry that it causes. Sorry, should not spread sadness but here is the only outlet for my tears and the fears of a return as colon is the highest risk for a return. That sword over my head will never stop swingin.
No plans today but more attempts to make my home pretty- if I even et one thin done I celebrate the day. I did manage to hang a boquet of red roses (silk) on the front door for Valentines and on March 1, will hang some St. Pats day prettys. When is Easter? I know it is early this year. Finally got a free calendar yesterday "Avon" and hung it in the kitchen. Course I could check here but never do.
Begete, is that Panda your new Pet????? I adored your pictures and my fav arrangement is the one of the veggies towards the end. I will be lookin through out the day at all those pics. Laurie is so beautiful and Pandora will live in my heart all the rest of my days.
Have a ood one all.

LoveMontana 02-15-2013 09:18 AM

Good morning everyone.

Thanks for the start off Doris. Hope you enjoy your trip to the larger town . Be sure to make time for some fun.

Babette, Love the Panda:love:

Gladys, it's always fun to spend other people's money.:cool:

Michelle, enjoy your day off.

Burrrrr Julie. Hope it warms up quickly for you.

Lainey, Easter is March 31, which is early.

Doing laundry and bed linen changing today and then a trip to Wegman's and maybe Sam's.

Mssarge 02-15-2013 10:03 AM

Good morning all...hope good things come your way today. Nuttin' much planned, as usual, so don't know what kind of mischief I'll get into. Was originally thinking of returning for some poker, but that drive is still a bit daunting; can't seem to get back in the L.A. driving habit....hmmm! Guess my troglodyte blood is showing.

SuSUN 02-15-2013 10:04 AM

Thank You Doris for pushing us out today. Love the bouquet in your Avi.

I am having a quiet relaxing day at home today with no demands on me the way I like.
I really should get to some chores will see what I manage to accomplish by the end of the day.

A GF and I may go to see Quartet tomorrow so something to look forward to. DS comes home on Sunday from his weekend in New York. He tells me he is loving it all.

Hugs to All and hope to be back later...

weezie 02-15-2013 10:51 AM

hi all-

Just a quick hello. Susan, if your son wants to wander down to Greenwich Village in NYC tomorrow evening, my husband Bob's band, Daylight Blues, will be at Garage restaurant, 99 7th Avenue South from 10:30 pm to 2:30 am. I plan to be there also. It's a blues/rock & roll band.

Have a good one, everybody.


Liblady 02-15-2013 11:05 AM

Wow, we sure got the rain we needed. We really had some downpours yesterday. We're in for chilly weather over the weekend with frost north of us, sorry Julie.

Lainey, thank you for your kind words, and yes, I agree cancer certainly changes your life. I was among the very lucky to not having to have radiation/chemo. But you never know when/if it will strike again and unfortunately that's on cancer survivors minds a bit too much.

Susan, a friend and I are trying desperately to get to Quartet. It's only playing over in Tampa, too far to go for us. I don't understand why it's not in "normal" theatres near us. We keep checking. It sounds like such a good movie.

Louise, have a great time tonight. DH and I would both like to be there.

The Valentine dance last night was great, really good music. While we were dancing, DH noticed someone we had not seen at dances before but they looked familiar, and it ended up that they were from Iowa and..................used to go to all of DH's dances around Des Moines! They have even heard me singing with DH's band after we married. Talk about a small world. They own a house right here in the community even. It made our night even more special, visiting with them a bit.

Maripooo 02-15-2013 04:26 PM

This is my first post and it's meant encourage everyone to see Quartet. You will enjoy it to the max and come out of the theater smiling.:)

modon69478 02-15-2013 04:31 PM

Welcome, Maripoo - Join us anytime!


modon69478 02-15-2013 05:32 PM

Just found out my nephew is going to a casting call for Fox's 'Junior Master Chef' - so exciting!

mykneesareback 02-15-2013 06:56 PM

What city does he go to for that casting call, Michele??

modon69478 02-15-2013 06:57 PM

New York City

mykneesareback 02-15-2013 06:59 PM

Oh wow, wishing him good luck, and a nice place to stay, lol...............:)

modon69478 02-15-2013 07:01 PM

Thanks! And, he's only 10 - what a fun experience for him.

Mssarge 02-15-2013 07:38 PM

Good things came my way today and I hope yours too....I had bought a Tommy Helfigger purse at Goodie's for next to nothing, but the straps were crumbling and shredding. Took it to my shoe repair shop, the changed the straps and now I have a beautiful bag for next to nothing...I'm a shoe and purse *****...love the accessories.

Then, I went to the Goodwill and found an excellent denim jacket that really fits. I've been looking for a longer jacket for some time...yep, I'm also a jacket *****...the way to my heart is with leather, denim and fur...faux fur, that is, as I can't stand wearing someone else's skin. Also, found a couple of denim dresses for this summer for the new, slimmer me. Great finds at the thrift stores...I love junqueing!!!

other errands completed, too, new windshield wipers for the car in anticipation of the storm coming in next week that I'll have to be out in...anyway, accomplished a lot today for a change.

Hope your day was good, too.

Begete 02-15-2013 08:02 PM

Yes, Julie, we are in San Diego. We leave on the cruise Sunday, but afterwards, go strait to the airport.

Lainey, I am confused. I posted only one photo. How were you able to see the entire album? Could anyone else see more than the one panda photo?

This is embarrassing !

mykneesareback 02-15-2013 09:12 PM

I could see your album until just now, Begete.......:dunno:

LoveMontana 02-15-2013 09:35 PM

Me too, so either you or an admin. corrected your link to the IMG one.

Begete 02-15-2013 09:42 PM

I cannot figure out what happened. I intended to post only the panda, but somehow my whole photobucket album got posted?how can that happen? When I clicked on the URL, all I saw was the panda.so I didn't edit anything....very puzzled....

LoveMontana 02-15-2013 10:20 PM

Always post only the [ IMG] link and it will only show the picture you want.

Norfolk Mermaid 02-16-2013 07:22 AM

Bloody Ell, just lost a post & pic.
Trying again.
Below are my new pets! Hey! you can have a PANDA I can have FLAMINGOS.
I can still see the entire album Beete. I adored all the outdoor pics so much.

Norfolk Mermaid 02-16-2013 07:25 AM
