Least - They're building a new cabin on the mountain we live on. I keep thinking Jackpot will be annoyed by the hammering, then I remember he's not here. I still think about giving him his meds at a certain time each day.

Pondy - Hallmark has dropped Lori Loughlin. She had a few projects in the works with them. I guess the Fuller House final season won't have Aunt Becky either. (I never watched it, but it was very popular.)

Old habits are hard to break. It took me months to stop looking at the top of the stairs for Jack.

Sitting here eating pretzel sticks and giving Billie small bites of pretzel.

Still raining here. A while ago it sounded like hail hitting the roof but I didn't see any hail, just rain.

I'm wondering how my neighbor is doing. He was supposed to be arraigned today. Hard to believe he was dealing fentanyl. Last I knew, they had two cars. One was a new Vette. I bet they sell the Vette to pay the lawyer. I hope he gets help.

Still thundering.

The plan for after the internment of our neighbour/friend's husband's ashes is getting a little out of control and I need to try to herd cats to get it back to "doable" (I am the one making arrangements but only after consulting with her first). She didn't want a reception at the condo here in the special room, she doesn't want a church reception because a different minister (a friend of her husband's) is doing the service), and she really didn't want "a big deal" but thought that lunch after might be nice.

So one other couple here who are also good friends suggested that we (Bubba and I, who are driving her, and them) take her to a nice restaurant where we can get a quiet area and have lunch.

Then another couple was added (by her)...and another...and maybe some from her "support group"...and the minister and another person who will conduct the ceremony...and her two cousins who may (or may not) bring their husbands (they aren't too close)...so I am guessing about 12-15 and can reserve a space for about 20 at that restaurant...if no more people are added. I asked her to make a list of who she would like and then we will send them a quiet note saying that we will be taking her to lunch and that they are welcome to join us (separate bills and hers is taken care of). Nobody knows anything about this so far except us and the other couple, so we can scale back if need be.

I hope this is it, or we go back to just a small group and keep it "no big deal". It's not until March 28 so we have time. I told her to think about it and we can talk again soon, and I really hope it goes back to something small. I never intended to take on anything big.

It's just a graveside service, so small would work better I think?
Oh my gosh.....what a lot.

Yes, I think. For sure. And your (and your friend's) solution is perfect re the notes I think....lovely idea. And I would let the restaurant know exactly what the occasion is and they will be more likely to be understanding if numbers change at the last minute....I would think.

You are a wonderful friend. This is a very special thing you and Bubba are doing.

So much to say about this.

But first, Hev honey....I am SO PROUD of you.....you walked doggies!!!! Yey!!!! You are going to start healing more every day now....kisses huh....might be time to think about bringing one of those doggies home love.

Ahh chic....I watched a fair bit on this yesterday....for me, the whole thing has changed now. Because it wasn't just the parents....those privileged young people, particularly LL's daughter is going to be very badly shamed by this. And FH's daughter as well....they are now going to be the famous 'kids' who cheated. That is going to stay with them for a very long time. So I am angrier now....at the parents....how dare they disrespect their own kids and every other kid who tries to get into a university?

This is major fraud...and all sorts of other stuff. I actually think the only thing that will keep these ladies out of jail is the very good lawyers they will be able to afford.




(I couldn't find a decent soapbox smiley gif.....Opi love, I bet you have one. ).

Suze - We will definitely adopt another baby when we know for sure where we'll be living after our lease is up.

Prayers for New Zealand this morning.

It is super unusual there....to have any kind of violence. One of the perps was an Aussie....no idea why that matters....I love the way the govt handled this....quietly asking that no one views and passes on the video of the massacre....they filmed themselves....far out....the trial will be swift. The jail time will be forever-ish.....Australia and NZ do not muck around with this stuff.

I know babies and children were injured....praying that they recover. 49 people is just so many.

And got you re the dog....totally understand....only reason I am looking for a new apt/house for us. I neeeeeeeeed a cat or two.

Prayers out for NZ. So sad the hatred that some folks feel.

I cannot fathom feeling such deep hatred for someone. We were not raised that way.

All went well today but she forgot to order Bubba's (routine) annual CT scan, so will book one sometime in the next 6 months and see him for a follow up visit. We are both glad this week is over, now we can catch up on our rest without getting up at 4 am.

Venus, yes, a place that allows cats (and/or dogs) is a must. Shame on people who don't love these animals.

Hev, walking dogs is such a good thing to do, so glad you and Mr. Hev are doing this. I have a feeling that one day, one of the dogs may adopt you.

PJ, how is your garden coming along? I love the art fence idea.

It is very springlike here today and the past few days, a lot of flooding from melting snow but nothing awful.

My prayers go out for the victims and their loved ones, in New Zealand. I read that when he hit the second mosque, someone had a gun and shot back...I hate guns but they are becoming necessary in "target" places like schools and worship places.

Ann, glad Bubba is doing well.

My computer has been weird today. I don't know if it's the sites or my computer.

Cold today and windy.

Only 5 more days until 'calendar spring'.

whats up everyone....came to whine a bit. It's a beautiful sunny day and I have freetime on my hands and I feel like doing absolutely nothing. Ordinarily this could easily be solved with a drink or 4...and since I've gone down the road of sobriety I discovered I had a sweet tooth I never knew. So much so that I actually gained (not lost!) 10 pounds over the course of a year. I have never weighed this much in my entire life and by the looks of it, it is here to stay.

You wouldn't believe the fun my AV has with that. "oh check you out, you're even less healthy now than when you drank! what are you doing this for!"

What ticks me off is I'd love to cope with all this with a big pint of ice cream and a bunch of junk food but I'll just gain more weight. It's not like before where I would just burn it all off. My body has changed since sobriety.

So anyways this is just a rant to try and cope. I got about one more hour until exercise and then everything should be ok for the evening. Thanks for listening

WaterOx - It's great to have you drop in for a whine or two.
I found a sweet tooth after I quit too! I had never been big on cake, pie, candy - but after quitting, I couldn't get enough. Not sure why that happens.

Suki - I forgot about the Ides too.

Suze, I was feeling sad about the young people, who are being taught a very corrupt way of life yes, they will feel shame, if theyve been taught right from wrong at all.
oh yes, a cat or two (a great choice), would bring such happiness!
So very sad, the shootings in NZ. sick people doing these things...
Ann, hope that you and Bubba had a nice and lazy day. come on Spring!
Hev, I didnt realize that Spring is only 5 days away!!! yippee!
love to all!

Calendar spring may be coming soon, but I won't believe it til April blows warm breezes and things start growing.

Billie had her supper and ate it all. Now she's curled up on her blankie sleeping.

I hope we don't get much snow overnight. I am not in the mood to wake up to snow.

Chic - Least's spring starts April 1st. That's probably more accurate.
