Well, lcf's says you're not able to receive PMs. Not sure what's up w/ that? Can you on me first? Maybe you have a setting that blocks them?

Hi friends,
I'm happy to say, that I now have wireless internet & can use my own laptop again. I sure had problems with sign-ins & passwords, let alone finding my sites!
I'm getting together with an internet friend tomorrow for church. Should be fun. Hopefully we won't melt driving there! I have been getting sick every time I spend any time outside. What a wimp!

Still hoping to hear from you Julie. But I guess you're at a wedding. I have a gmail account if you want to email me... deblfort is the name on it.

We shopped for another dog carrier today & found one that I think will be better, it can strap around me, so I won't be afraid that it will fall off. It will also still sit on the side-box though. I didn't like depending on bungees... you know how they "pop" off sometimes!

Hope you're all doing well.

Love,
Debby

Glad you are having such a good time Debby ! That new carrier does sound more safe for Molly. Good idea

Yes, it sure is hot and humid. I can't imagine having all those clothes on AND a helmet..... I would just die ~~ I'm so hot natured ;0

Have fun and be safe !

Deb, I just pm'd Julie your gmail address so hopefully she'll get it sooner. I also checked to see if I could pm you and it appears that I can. I wonder why Julie had that issue with not being able to send you a pm? So weird.

Glad you got the new dog carrier. How's little miss Molly doing, anyhow? Did you say someone was posting pics and info on her on FB? I'd love to check them out. I once had a puppy that seemed like a perfect angel at first but then she got comfortable in my home and became a little terror whenever I left the house. Separation anxiety. She also tried to be the alpha dog over Cisco, which wasn't cool. Big mess and I'm glad I found her a much more suitable home than mine. It was a tough decision that took me a long time to make.

Well, have a great day! Stay cool if you can.

Hi,
Its actually not humid here, which helps. But I get overheated easily.

Yes, my dgd is posting pics. I will have to share them with you for you to see them, I think... Molly is doing grand. They're teaching her things already & she's being a real sweet-heart. Having the older dog there to play with her is a big bonus too, as they wouldn't spend as much time with her as I will. I haven't bought the carrier yet... better not to have to haul it hundreds of miles. Bike is already packed to capacity.
I met with an online friend I met in 98 today at church. It was so fun!

Yea! I couldn't see the picture. Only way I can is if I "friend" the person posting the pics. If they want to let me do that, they can "unfriend" me afterward. (Like, after you get home so I can keep seeing Molly pics.)

We're in Bend Oregon tonight. Think we'll be here for another night too. Things are going well. Weather is much more comfortable here!

Bought a safeway roasted chicken last night, ate on it all day! Still have half a serving. Great savings & for the diet, but sure wears you out trying to eat it all!

Hoping to get more walking in, now that we're in tolerable temps.

Where do you go from Bend OR? What's left of your journey? I'll bet it's so much more comfortable up there. I am going to be at work, out in the sun and humidity and bugs until the big T-storm comes around 5 or 6 or so, then it will be interesting to say the least. Just another day in CT!

Have a nice time in Bend.

Just looking at your Spot Adventure. I guess you decided against going to Mexico for dental work. Forgot about that. AZ heat must have scared you off of that idea!

Hi
Spent the day in lovely Sunriver, Oregon with my best friend from junior high school. Its like a resort here, and yes the temperature was just perfect! We had a lovely walk & lunch & dinner & gabbed the whole time. Very fun & relaxing.

I did get 2 fillings done in AZ. Didn't really require anything serious, so just had him remove the metal & fill with white, as the metal was showing through & bugging me... always getting food stuck in there. He said my teeth looked good, just receding, that's why I thought I needed work done, sensitive.

So, we're heading for Battleground tomorrow, to spend time with DH's family... Mom & sister & her family.

Hope you are well. I have had very little online time.
(need sleep)!

Sounds like you're having a lovely ride!! Oregon is beautiful, especially in the summer time. Hope you get to the "coast" and can enjoy the ocean a bit too. I love to walk on the beach!!

Debby, I'll bet you'll feel better with the metal fillings gone. I've heard of nearly miraculous things happening to people's health after metal fillings were replaced with the white stuff. I'd love to have that done myself someday.

Glad you're enjoying Oregon and the weather is lovely! Not sure where Battleground is so I'll have to google. Have a splendid day. I'm in for another humid, stormy farm day. Just like yesterday. But the good news in, there is a cold front on the way, and relief comes with it!

I got my walk in today Glad of that. And was actually able to go shopping by myself for my foods & cooked it up today.

Our travels are going well. Staying with my older sister & her dh.
Got to see Nephews, niece & their kids. Today we got to visit with my cousin. So fun!
Diet going well. I think I may have put on a lb or so, can't tell... but its good, getting too thin (if there is such a thing)!

I love that you changed your Avi to the pic you posted on FB yesterday. What a flattering photo of you. You're so happy! What a wonderful trip you're having. It is so great to see the people you love that you live so far away from. But when you have to say goodbye again, oh man! That hurts. I hope they sometimes can come to see you where you live. That way you can see each other more often.

Stay safe and I'm glad to hear you put on one lb. You are perfect in those pics of late. One lb is just insurance.

Thanks Cheryl,
Bad hair, but happy time with cousin.

The trip is going well. Moving on tomorrow, from my sister's to another friend's home. Its so good to see family & friends.

Wt. at lowest today. Probably not tomorrow though! Ate out twice today. Learning how to eat out... less worries about the cost, just go for what works & remember to ask them to leave out the stuff I can't eat

What stuff do you ask them to leave out? I'm not sure what plan you're following while on the road. Did you decide to do Atkins style? I know you enjoyed that when you tried it at home. Anyway, I'm really glad you maintain your weight loss so easily. I think it's more because you are so diligent about it, rather than just being lucky. I want to be like you when I grow up.

Have a great day.

Hi Cheryl,
Thanks for asking. I say no cheese, croutons, cabbage, cucumbers ... dressing on the side. Whatever I find out is in it that I can't or won't eat. Substitute salad for other things if they will, otherwise DH eats that stuff. Ordering burgers, no buns no fries, side salad. I've made the exception of ignoring the soy in the salad dressings, I go for ranch anyway... but it is effecting my temperature.

Hey, Laura! How you been?

I would (if doing LC) only skip the croutons. I love cheese, don't have a passion or aversion to cabbage and cucumbers are our friends. Just popped in here to say goodnight! And I agree, Laura. What a wonderful trip they're on.

My sister Donna, hubby Joe and my Mom are heading to NC tomorrow and stopping in Maryland to spend the night (going south and then back north) at their daughter's house. It's new to them and not nearly set up for company yet but my Mom will be happy to see it. Then they will be spending a week in a really nice cabin in the mountains. I want to cry, I want to go with them so badly. Hope they have a wonderful and safe time.
