Larry:  Reid cut the bottoms and tops of many hockey sticks and put all together tightly to make the top.  Then, he used the bottoms (curved) for the legs and other pieces to stabilize all.  He has more work.  He has friends from Finland, Slovakia, Sweden and even plays with Russians.  It is really interesting.  Of course, he plays with Canadians and they all visit - a regular United Nations.

It is windy and possible rain.  We sat on our deck yesterday and did not look up - a big tree shades the deck - we watched a shadow.  That was enough for us.  Our neighbors drove to Nebraska most likely their son wanted to see the bigger eclipse.  Just hearing about traffic was enough for us to stay home.  I am staying home from quilting tonight as my project is now laying on the floor and about 1/4 finished in total - taking many breaks at this point.  One break turned into a little nap.   ;)



Jackie:  the flowers look like orchids - is that right?  Oh, so talented!  Thank you.

Hi everyone. This morning is starting out sunny but by afternoon we have a 60% chance of rain with a high in the low 90's.  This is going to be a busy morning as Pat has a 9 am appointment with the podiatrist and his office is about 30 minutes away.  Then later this morning I have to go downtown and pick up a grocery online order at Walmart. 

We watched the eclipse on TV as they tracked it in our area.  It got darker, but not dark here with a weak light outside.  As far as I know people here were able to view a total eclipse or almost total eclipse.  They showed many students at Clemson out watching the total eclipse up there.

Carol, were those hockey sticks I saw on top of the table? 

Janet, glad to see your posting that Beth was doing better yesterday.

Well, we got to see the the eclipse; it started around 11:30 max was just about 1:00 (we had about 90% here) and was over by 2:00.  We were processing peaches for the freezer, so we kept grabbing the glasses and running out to look!  And listened to and watched some on tv as well. It was quite a day!  I am satisfied to have seen a 90% partial eclipse.  :)

I did go check on Beth this morning.  They had put a new patch behind her ear, to help with the awful mucus problem last night, and she was much improved.  John wasn't there yet, and I didn't make it back to town, but I hope he came today.  They were just bringing her out of the shower when I was there. ( I meant they put the new patch on her last night.)

 :hb3:  Carol!!  And many more!  A hockey stick table  sounds very unique!

Hello, Larry!

Pretty birthday card for Carol, Jackie!

We had a wonderful visit with grandson.  He put the sawed off hockey sticks to use - Larry, they are colorful and all names on them.  It will be unusual for sure and probably all of his game friends will want a table just like it. 

Jackie:  You are so talented - love the picture.  Thank you very much. 

Janet:  My prayers for you - Beth and all. 

It is a quiet and cool morning with the sun rising.  I have been thinking over and over of a song that they play at church (loud).  It is "The sun goes down and the stars rise up".  Unless you have been in a mega church, you cannot believe how strong that message comes across with a huge number of choir on stage.  It is almost overwhelming and I love it.  Having come from quiet and medium sized Lutheran churches - I do love the peaceful setting as well.   

Larry: Thanks for your photo tip.  Stay safe.  We are going out for breakfast for a treat and staying home - praying for safety of all on the roads to view the eclipse - it is close to total here and around noon time.

OH JOY!  I lost a cap from a tooth and it looks like it too the top of the tooth with it.   :'(  I suppose the fact that it must be about 40 years  since I got it have anything to do with it.

I'll watch the eclipse strictly on TV.  There won't be much to see here anyway, plus the talking heads will tell me exactly how excited I get - probably about 30 times.   :lol:

Hi everyone. The eclipse day has finally arrived and according to the our local weather report it is to be partly cloudy here this afternoon when the full eclipse hits us around 2:40.  It looks like we will only get to 90 this afternoon, which will be better than what we have experienced the last few days. 

I have to get a haircut this morning and find the right type of filters for my heat pump.  That is all that is on my schedule for today.

Carol, First of all Happy Birthday.  I did get the picture you sent and I thought it looked like maybe a number of hockey sticks had been put together to form the top but see I was wrong. If you don't have a lot of pictures on your Kindle to send to your computer the easiest way would probably be to email them to yourself and then save them on your computer from your emails.  Since neither Pat nor I use Kindle Fire I can't be of much help but know that Pat's sister send us pictures that way all the time. I don't anticipate any road rage in our area but there are suppose to be a lot of people coming to the Aiken and Columbia area and on down to the Charleston area. 

Janet, certainly not good news regarding Beth and it sounds like you have reason for great concern and understand your lose of energy. I hope John will be able to be with her tomorrow as that will probably give her a lift of her spirits.

Jackie, another very pretty card you made for Carol.  Were you able to get to Church yesterday?

We have been ever so thankful for Beth doing better for a few weeks.  But that seems to be over now.  John has been sick for four days and hasn't been to see her; I went yesterday and again today.  She isn't doing well at all now; the awful, thick mucus is again pouring out her mouth and she can barely swallow anything; says her left arm is hurting.  Her color is bad again, no sparkle in her eyes.   :'(  God knows; and Jesus is our help and hope.  I called John for her, he said he's feeling a bit better and will try to come see her tomorrow.  Sigh.... :'(  Sorry, TMI.

I took the last box of Colorado peaches out of the refrigerator and plan to get them into the freezer tomorrow.

I'm glad we aren't trying to go anywhere in the path of totality to see the eclipse tomorrow.  The 85-90% is just fine for me, that's more than I have seen to date!  I'm wondering how many will travel and spend money to go, then have clouds obscuring their view?!

I'm feeling so tired suddenly and know it's because of the disappointment I feel at seeing Beth so down again.  Prayers for all of us appreciated!

Carol, I would have no idea how to send photos from my Kindle Fire!  Of course, I don't know (or remember) how to do lots of technical things.)  :-[

I'm going to read for a while, maybe take a little nap!  :thumbsup:

Larry:  I think I was able to send you a picture of the top of the table.  The metal you see for the top is hollow so that may be an issue.  A glass top will be put on last.   Anyway, I took the picture on the Kindle Fire and this is the first time I could see how to send a picture.  The Kindle is attached to my old laptop - why it works, I will never know.  Now, I am trying to figure out how to store pictures from the Kindle Fire to somewhere -

 :coffee:  Such a lovely morning here.  Thankful for sunshine and cooler evenings. 

Be glad you are nowhere near the eclipse.  there is road rage out there.

Hi everyone. Today will be more of the same weather wise getting into the high 90's by late afternoon.  Pat had a not so good day yesterday and last night.  She is feeling better so far this morning but I just want her to take it very easy today. I feel she did too much in the kitchen yesterday.  I will go to Sunday School and Church and bring home our main meal as usual. Then I plan on listening to Don Reid's last classical music program as he is leaving radio after today.  Finally I will enjoy the end of the golf tournament.

Carol, did the coffee table get made yesterday using the hockey sticks?
