Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6.Dec 11 2019 1:45am
Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable paymentsDec 03 2019 12:04am
Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right sideOct 26 2019 10:34am
Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours?Oct 22 2019 11:42am
Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worthOct 16 2019 10:28pm
Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costsSep 30 2019 12:33pm
Carol: Praise: I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery today! Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered. So very blessed.Aug 13 2019 5:25pm
Carol: Today is another drive to the VA. We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway. Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong. Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us. /b]Aug 07 2019 10:46am
Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy. Aug 07 2019 10:42am
JudyB: I have posted a new month!Aug 02 2019 8:05pm
The couple in back of the yard is coming over later. I wanted to buy grapes but the price is 3 times what it was a couple of months ago Oranges and some apples were much less - I will just put out snacks like so many of us around here do now. It is much easier and most people do not want a heavy supper - myself included. My neighbor gave me three lemons, he tossed them from his yard and I did catch all three.
Our good friend (a few blocks from here) is losing her vision so fast. She cannot see well after dusk at all - a couple of men take turns walking her dog after supper.
Janet" How is everything going? Are you resting before more trips?

The second crock pot of chicken soup is simmering. One was for a friend who has a wicked cold. This one is for us -some to freeze and some to reheat for a few days.
Through the magic of the internet, we could watch a hockey game being played in a Minnesota college last night. Our grandson (a senior this year) shocked everyone by making the first goal immediately. It has been so much fun to be able to watch and critique the games when the connection is actually working. We hope to be healthy enough to drive back to Minnesota this springtime for graduation. I gave this grandson the hockey skates my dad used (his great-grandfather).
Here, still reading the one-year bible study by Charles Stanley and it gets high grades from me. A friend loaned it - my friends have a lot of different studies and they gave me one different study each for my birthday last year. They asked me what I wanted and I asked for loan studies so this is perfect.
Yesterday, while driving here, a pack of Javelinas ran right in front of the car. They look like huge pigs but are not- they are native to Mexico and go wherever they can find food.l They love trash cans, fruit and acorns from trees and bulbs - so messy and they have a horrible odor. They ruined some patio cushions and if you are bitten, it means a hospital visit from the germs.

I came in to mention we are going to our second class on Alzheimer's Disease this afternoon. Grim statistics but we want to know more - my mother was diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic. I had to get her to that hospital in Minnesota on the coldest and snowiest time of the year - it was such a difficult thing. To make matters worse, the hotel had a kitchen fire in the middle of the night and we were evacuatingP when firemen came to tell me it was all over. That was a blessing because my mother said "No" to everything.
We had a wonderful visit with my cousin & his wife. They led the Christmas service at their little place in the desert - the pastor retired. Our son drove us all the way (too fast). He left for Montana two days ago.
Judy" I am so sorry you have to wait for health care. Prayers for your BP to drop.
