Good mornin all and thanks Beete.

Slept well but tired this morning and it will be close to 90 today.
Hair wash day and "Bev" found the absolute #1 best shampoo for my hair- It has Tea Tree Oil in it and my hair is full and bouncy with shine even some curl- I am white in the front and a dark ash in the back- used to be call dirty dish water blonde- ugh! But, this old age ash is very dark more like a charcoal in the back. I will check her bottle today to make sure I pick up the right one as I furnish the shampoo for my hair- she only charges me 5.00 per wash so I pay her a 20.00 dollar bill on my soc. sec. deposit day week each month. I love this arrangment as my hair grows super fast and is now just about down to my bra in the back- the ends were really looking awful but 2 shampoos with this Tea Tree stuff and they are now just perfect and curled at the ends.
I' m fed, Kitties are fed, dishwasher is fed and I am about to feed the drier after a rinse as they were washed 2 days ago and then out to plant more plantlets before the hair time at 1:30 . Maybe storms later today and for the next 3 or so days so hope to get it all in the ground today.

Gladys, thinkin of you and C. and all Miya's family and friends. I am prayin that all find peace and rest during this most sad of times. Elaine

Good morning all-

so funny with my hair fall out. It is color selective - the darker hair (light to medium brown) is mostly gone and the blonde and gray remain. Weird. I went in length from middle of my back to shoulder length to collar length. Not as difficult to deal with as it comes out.

Feeling pretty good today - probably the pre-chemo steroids, etc., still at work. Going to use that energy while I can. Need to catch up with laundry and some paperwork.

Hope you all have a lovely day.

Just checking in.....Louise, I'm happy to read your posts and praying and sending strong thoughts towards you, hang in there!! How is Bob?

Thanks for starting us out, Begete!

Hello to you, Lainey, did you buy a printer?

Prayers going out to Glady's family, and hugs to Gladys.

I'm off to get stuff done around here, first the bike time, though.....

Don’t just do something, stand there!

UGH Shampoo, that's not a fun thing to try. They are al so darned different. You are fortunate Lainey that you hair girl found one that works for you.

Good morning all...I got my wish, it's a May Gray day and the temps is only in the 60's this morning...a bit of an on-shore flow which brings the coolth. Nuttin' planned for today so that means I'll find some mischief somewhere.

Gladys, my prayers with you and yours..I hope the family is finding some peace.

Louise, good vibes coming your way, too.

Off to feed the tail-waggers and find trouble some way...have a good day folks.

Just back from the Drs. I guess I waited too long hoping this head cold would pass. I perforated my left ear drum last night. I am on the Big Guns antibiotics 1000mg x 2 a day for 10 days. I wondered why my energy levels were so low all week. They will be now taking these meds. Better get the probiotics at the ready.

Gladys, please know you have my sincere condolences.
