Title: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on November 02, 2008, 06:57:14 pm
I thought it would be fun to have a "shootin' the breeze" thread for days when we don't have much to say about the show.  Feel free to stop in and drop us a line!  It can be anything.....good morning, hello, good night, have a great weekend, maybe share something exciting that happened, whatever you want to say!  Happy posting!

I hope you had fun at your grandson's basketball game!  If I wake up early enough tomorrow, I'll probably head over to WalMart.  I like getting there first thing in the morning when it's not crowded.

Good Sunday all.  I am sitting here procrastinating on what I need to do.  I know what I have to do, but I am too blah to do it.  I did manage to do some laundry and clean a bit, but my energy level is a 1 now.  UGH!!! :-\

High point of my morning--was shopping and found NICE, BIG rolls of Christmas wrapping paper on clearance for 17 cents each!  Obviously, I bought some!  So I came home feeling pretty pleased with my purchases even tho not were all such bargains as the wrapping paper, and someone had thrown a beer bottle, shattered across my driveway.  I swung out to miss it and heard a loud pop.  Definitely drove over part of it.  Darn!  Now I'm afraid I'll get a flat tire.  Picked up glass for a long time, nicked a finger. I am now a crabby Rose.   >:(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 10, 2009, 10:25:34 am
That's the pits about all that broken glass, Rose!

I'll catch you all later in the day; I'm leaving town to pick up my new glasses today.  I hope they'll be easy to adjust to.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on January 10, 2009, 10:27:14 am
Not much going on for me today.
Hubby is going to store for us. I will probably watch a movie this afternoon, while he watches football.
Hope yall have a great day!

We bought the first season of 24, so we are having marathon 24 watching here.   :)

Post by: Lynn1 on January 10, 2009, 10:42:48 pm
I've got my new glasses now, and I love them!  This is my first pair of progressives ever, and I was able to wear them out of the store and drive immediately!  I'm still getting used to the whole "point your nose wherever you want to look" thing, but it's a lot easier than I expected!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 11, 2009, 11:47:48 am
Hello!  I'm off to a late start this morning, and hope to be back later in the day to catch up on magazine articles.   :)

I am watching my favorite show House.  Hugh Laurie is sooo cute.  I did nothing productive today, just laundry.  It is sad the weekend is ending and back to work tomorrow.  I have the munchies too, gosh   :-X


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 11, 2009, 09:36:12 pm
Since you mentioned munchies, Charlene... do you like salty snacks or sweet snacks better?  I thought I was going to be good this week, but then I replenished my two chocolate stashes... one for home and one for work (a bigger one at work)!

Here I am at work, hating every minute of it.  I am so glad to have a job, that is for sure and it is not so bad here.  What to do after work, that is the question???  Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday  ;D

No Y&R for me today.  We set up the new converter boxes for digital on the weekend, thought we had everything figured out.  Wrong.  We didn't get the VCR set up right.  I found the problem easily, so we should be back in business tomorrow!     :'(

Just a heads-up since I had a question about this today.  This particular thread is longer than one page, so you might need to click on the last page number in order to read the most recent posts.  For example, right now the title of the thread says "Shootin' The Breeze Thread" and it has a 1 and a 2 next to the title.  You'd click on the "2" to get the most recent posts.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 14, 2009, 03:59:33 pm
UGH!  I ate too much.  I need to exercise for 6 hours to burn off what I just digested.  I took off work early today, son had a drs appt.  Then him and I went to Denney's to eat and went to look at skateboards.  This is not for me, he wants a new one, so he just wanted to browse to see how much he needs to save up.  Heck, a good board, with wheels, bearings, trucks, grip tape, $130 and up.  Man, what a money making scheme these companies are putting out. 

Hope everyone has a peaceful evening  8)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 14, 2009, 11:08:07 pm
Wow, I had no clue skateboards and all the related stuff cost so much!  Could you tell me what an Ollie is?  (Or maybe ask your son?)  I've got a couple of kids convinced that I ride my skateboard to work occasionally, and of course, I don't have the slightest clue how to ride one.  But they're convinced cuz I did a 360 in my high heels.  LOL!  I jokingly told them that if I could do that in high heels, of course I could do that on a skateboard.  And they were all, "Whoa!  You're good!"  But I could be stuck in the future:  what if they ask me to do an Ollie, and I don't know what it is?     ;D


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 15, 2009, 08:56:15 am
Hey Lynn, have you been holding out on us?  I knew it, you are a skateboard champ  ;)  I will ask my son tonite, he knows all those moves and such.  He has them downloaded on his MP4 so that he can do the moves and watch it to see how he is doing.  Boys, they are a trip.  Skateboards are very expensive, the cheapest I have seen that is decent $130. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 15, 2009, 10:50:31 pm
Yep, I've been holding out on you guys.  And it gets worse... the kids think I have several colors of skateboards to match my outfits.  Ha ha!  ;D  I sure hope an Ollie isn't something crazy like a back flip, or I'm doomed!

Post by: Rose on January 28, 2009, 03:57:12 pm
Once again I didn't get Y&R due to this new cable/converter/VCR setup.  I am so disappointed.  I hope someone else got the best lines of the day.  Does anyone have Direct TV?  I hate this new cable setup and keep seeing ads for Direct TV.  Wonder if it's any better than this mess I have now. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 28, 2009, 07:53:56 pm
I have Directv and love it.  Y&R comes on at night at 7 pm, I record it when I am not going to be at home.  I love Soapnet, lets me see what I miss. 

Tomorrow is Thursday, one day closer to Friday (thank gosh).  The end of the month is coming up at work.  We have to close out as many work orders as we possibly can, dont have a clue what started this BS, but this is the way it is.  We usually work late, one nite we got out at 9 pm.  That was a long day 7 am to 9 pm, I was seeing double.  I get tired of having to wait for other people, this is what holds up my work and keeps me there all hours of the night on the last day.  I am bit--y for some reason  :-\

Happy Wednesday night all,  8)

Hi yall,
 I figured I would give you an update on our devastation from "IKE".
Hubby and I are still living in Fema trailer (on our property in the front yard of our house) thankful to have this!
The curbs in this town are still cluttered with furniture, carpet, clothes and appliances.
Thank God we had flood insurance. So many people in our town were always advised that it wasn't needed.. (we are 5 feet above sea level)
Our house has been gutted out about 5 feet. The stench of the furniture and in the house was terrible.
All my clothes were ruined. I am looking at the bright side of this. We are having new sinks, tubs,countertops,floors and any changes we want to make (within reason).
I am changing our old white appliances for stainless steel ones. The only thing we have to buy is the fridge.
There is a video on U Tube of our neighborhood. It shows our house as they are driving through the sludge. If I was computer literate, I could post a link to it, but not that smart with computers.
Hope everyone has a good day and love the new site here!

lol ...I had to come back and edit this cuz I wrote 5 miles above sea level


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 29, 2009, 10:38:01 pm
I've got to say, I've always been impressed with how you look for the positive in things, Marguerite.  Have you had a chance to pick out any of the new things yet?


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on January 30, 2009, 10:13:15 am
Thanks Lynn!
My hubby and grown son both tell me that if you always believe in the best that you will be let down and disappointed and that if you expect the worst, it's gotta turn out better. I beg to differ. I believe that if you speak positive and think that way, it will come true.

No, I haven't got to pick out the new fixtures or floors yet. I do know that I am switching from brass doorknobs,ceiling fans and light fixtures to brushed silver. (same price). The brass seems to look tarnished and this house was just built in 2004.
I know I am addicted to watching HGTV. Love to see the different things that people can do for less expensive prices. Even landscaping!

Post by: DebbieMartin48 on January 30, 2009, 10:16:43 am
Yeah  Carey you are a inspiration for me...I  look at the angel I have on my shelf in the bedroom and I think it watches over me....I hope the house gets back in  shape soon and it sounds like it is well on its way....
Hugs.... ;)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on January 30, 2009, 07:48:02 pm
Awwww shucks...< blushing> Thanks Deb and Lynn!

Made my day to hear yall say these things about me.
Deb, I lost my angel in the flooding, but certainly do remember it. Glad she is watching over you.
((((Paws))) had one too. I still find it hard to believe she is gone.
Hope your weather situation improves.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on January 30, 2009, 09:22:01 pm
The one thing I would change about this site if I could is that the threads would open to the last page that has been posted.  For instance, page 3 would just open on this thread, rather than page 1.  Some other things I really like a lot tho like the ability to preview threads, and how easy it is to jump to another area like general or off-topic.   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on January 30, 2009, 11:16:40 pm
yeah I know Carey  its hard I miss her....
I love my angel  ;)

Being able to set up polls on this site is quite a nice advantage, too.   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 31, 2009, 07:25:06 pm
This site rocks.  Thanks again a million times Lynn for setting it up. 

Today was cold as heck.  I hate the cold weather, ready for summer.  The grass is all blucky and dead, no trees or pretty flowers, I get the blahs in the winter. 

One more weekend day, they seem to go by so quick.  I have 2 days off next week, getting things straight with my son and trying to get moved too. The only bad thing about the move, no cable or satellite tv, will be to poor for that.

Happy Saturday nite Y&R fans  8)

Post by: Rose on January 31, 2009, 07:31:55 pm
OK.  I just figured out I could click on page 3 from the start.  It finally jumped out and hit me over the head.   :D


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 31, 2009, 07:42:21 pm
Rose, dont feel bad, I just figured it out too.  Gosh, what a day I am having (lol)

Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 01, 2009, 03:44:10 pm
Thanks Lynn, trying to find a place that wont take every cent I have.  It is a no too good of a move deal, my hubby and I are splitting and I am moving out.  Not sad about it, long time coming (if you know what I mean)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on February 01, 2009, 05:47:28 pm
Moving fees sure add up, don't they?  Are you moving locally (staying in the same town)?


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 01, 2009, 05:56:00 pm
Trying to stay locally.  It is crazy, application fees, one time fees etc.  It all adds up.  I need to get looking in the next couple days. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on February 02, 2009, 03:58:23 pm
I also like the "quote" option here when replying on threads.  Just comparing what is offered here as to what is offered on an Aimoo site where I moved a class reunion site.  I think I am done monkeying with the class reunion site.  Good enough!  It is all too time-consuming, and I need to get outside this week to prune my roses!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on February 02, 2009, 07:02:39 pm
Rose do you have a big rose garden?
I bet thats relaxing


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on February 02, 2009, 08:45:35 pm
I have 18 roses across my back yard and 5 more out front.  The 18 in back are so spectacular when they all come into bloom that I cannot part with them.  We can see them out the living room window, so it is rather gorgeous in the summer!  


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 03, 2009, 06:36:56 pm
Sounds beautiful Rose.  I do not have a green thumb at all.

It snowed today, yesterday was 50 and today 31.  My head hurts like a big dog and has all day.  I have so much stress going on, home, with my son being in trouble and trying to hold on to a great job that pays well.  UGH!!! I want to sleep at least for 2 days.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on February 03, 2009, 08:26:05 pm
Well, the roses are a mixed blessing.  I got them when neighbors divorced, and they got thrown in my yard.  Didn't really think they would survive, poor things.    :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 03, 2009, 08:34:16 pm
Roses are hard to grow, or so I have been told.  Wow, you will have to post some pics.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on February 06, 2009, 03:29:53 pm
Another thing I like about this site is when you are posting, you can just scroll down and read the old posts on the thread. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 06, 2009, 06:35:18 pm
This site is great.  I like seeing post statistics, pages and what is popular.  Great job Lynn!!!

Post by: Lynn1 on February 13, 2009, 10:48:04 pm
Have fun visiting with your daughter, Debbie! 

I'm heading out of town tomorrow for a Valentine lunch at my favorite restaurant.  And maybe sometime over the weekend I'll get to look around at DSW (shoe heaven!!!)  Even if I don't buy anything, it's sure fun to look around there!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 14, 2009, 09:36:54 pm
Well today I got quite a bit of my things moved out of the house.  My mom, the great mom she is spent about $220 on me today buying lights, towels, vacuum cleaner etc for my new place.  We moved two regular size trucks and small trailer and two cars loaded full this morning.  We just kinda hung around, chatted and put things away slowly.  My place is nice, lots of potential.  I am sad to leave the house that my hubby and I built in 1999, but we do not see eye to eye, so it has to be what it has to be. 

Thank gosh for computers, I would be bored at the new place.  I will slowly be getting things straight, it will take some time. 



Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on February 15, 2009, 09:10:18 am
hope the place turns out ok foxwell
Im going to church at 11 and then home to finish up lunch then to my grandsons ballgame at 3

tomorrow I go to the dentist my appt is at 1030....

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 15, 2009, 08:23:46 pm
Happy Sunday guys, the weekend went by so fast.  The place is coming together, need to get the livingroom furniture in there, but at least my sons room is pretty well straight and my clothes are all put away. 

Did some grocery shopping, took some things to my new place.  I am tired, been going since 8 am and need a break, but off to work tomorrow.  UGH!!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

We have been having fits over this television converter box business.  The local cable company is only converting the basic channels to digital, and they are broadcasting the expanded basic channels only in digital, not converting them for analog sets.  So we had to get boxes, and one tv worked but not the other.  The cable guy yesterday tried telling me we needed to rewire the whole house.  Then Mr. Rose came unglued and was downright rude to them, and surprise, surprise, now they got it fixed. Four phone calls and two visits later by the cable guy, we have two working tv's. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on February 20, 2009, 08:53:43 pm
Sometimes it takes a bit of heck raising to get things done and right.  I hope that my directv is going to be able to go to my new place.  They state it can, but I dont see where they can hook up the tv since in the apartment building, they wont let you drill or anything.  I can get cable, but dont want to pay the extra to disconnect early in my contract.  I am between a rock and a hard place all the time for some reason this year. 



Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on February 22, 2009, 02:42:50 pm
Another nice thing about this site:  When I was posting, a warning message popped up saying someone else just posted on the thread, so I might want to read that message first.   :)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on February 22, 2009, 04:29:12 pm
Just popping in real quick to say hello, and hope everyone's having a nice Sunday afternoon!

It done that to me the other day Rose when I was posting...Go Mr. Rose they need someone to get
tough with them its aggravating the screaky wheel gets the grease is what I always heard if you dont voice your frustrations they will walk all over you :)
Hey Rose tell Mr. Rose he did well :D

Post by: Lynn1 on February 23, 2009, 09:57:49 pm
Aww... that's sad.  :'(  I glanced over there the other day since the 21st was supposed to be "Dooms Day," and I was surprised to still see it.  Then I wondered if they'd keep the groups up through February or something.  I'm just thankful that we had plenty of advanced notice so we could get moved before the closure.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on February 24, 2009, 11:41:05 pm
Hopefully I can catch up on the boards either tomorrow or Thursday.  Today was just crazy.  So if I didn't reply to particular threads, I wasn't ignoring them... I was just short on time.

Hmmm.  I posted this earlier, but I don't know where it went!  We went to Burgerville, USA, for lunch today--a Tillamook Cheeseburger Basket and a Triple Berry Milkshake.  Delicious!  It sure doesn't appear that Burgerville is being hit by the recession.  The place was full already, and a basketball team busload of players, cheerleaders, parents, students and coaches stopped and got into line.  Yes, we were at the end of the line; but we actually didn't have to wait long for our food!   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on March 12, 2009, 10:39:35 pm
I won't be posting much today or tomorrow.  Long day today, and the school carnival is tomorrow night.  I'll probably get to see Friday's episode of Y&R sometime over the weekend.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 13, 2009, 05:02:55 pm
Friday's episode was a little better than Thursday's, Lynn.   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on March 14, 2009, 12:30:47 pm
I am sitting here this afternoon waiting for the cable guy.  I can not wait to be able to watch Y&R again.  My son is at a friends house and Gabby is with her dad, so quiet around here.  I just hung up my last piece of clothing, thank gosh.  I am tired of this moving crap, it drives me nuts.  I can not wait for summer to get here.  I have a patio/balcony, I can put plants, decorations and some chairs to sit outside.  I hate being cooped up, want to go outside. 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far, at least it is not raining or snowing here yet???

Boy, it's pouring buckets today!  The trees on the way into the apt. complex were just starting to blossom, and I bet there won't be any flowers left after all the wind and rain we're getting today.

I can't wait for the plum trees to blossom!  It was beautiful here on Friday, and I spent the late afternoon working in the yard.  Lots of signs of spring, and it was so beautiful, and my forsythia are actually blooming in this miserable weather.  Now I hate being cooped up in the house again!

Sitting here watching CSI Miami re-runs and eating a bagel from Dunkin Donuts.  I love their ice coffee, the caramel to be exact.  It has rained here all darn day  :(  I am so ready for the trees to bloom.  I am going to scrub my balcony off and put two chairs and a small table out there.  I am going to plant my own hanging baskets to hang and a few flower pots when the weather gets warmer, can not wait.  I hate cold/dreary weather. 

Back to work tomorrow, UGH!!  The boss is back from vacation, so peaceful days are over.  It was so nice not having someone breath down your neck and I could actually make a decision without being told I was wrong. 

Hope I get up in the morning, when it is dreary outside, I want to sleep in. 

Happy Sunday all

good evening everyone,,,Ny daughter goes back to school tomorrow she has been on spring break...
My husbands cousin  took  an overdose of pills and  they called us we called the paramedics they took him to the hospital his bp was 70/30....He  is in ICU this is the 6th time he has tried to kill himself he has been in and out of mental hospitals over the last few yrs...His daughter said she was worn out going through this the night before they were up trying to find him he was out all night the police couldnt even find him...
His kidneys wont act and he is swollen I dont know if they will work again or not the dr said he just wasnt sure..My husbannds aunts are all upset he was at their house when he fell  in the floor he apparently had taken the pills before he got to their house last night....
They are old and it upset them one is 85 and the other 2 is 79 and 78...so it was hard on them ...I just dont understand why he took the pills and then come to their home...The dr told his daughter that he wanted attention it wasnt enough pills to kill him just enough to mess himself up..so I dont know....His daughter said she was just about fed up with him..she said its all the time and it makes her so nervous...I know it would....
so we had an exciting and tiring night last night.....nothing else much been going on just waiting for warm weather ...

It's pretty cold here too for this time of the year. Had to put the heater on. Temp this morning was about 39. It is probably our last breathable day before summer starts with the humidity! Hope everyone is doing ok.

Hi Guys, it got pretty cold here too.  I hate cold weather and need that warm weather soon. 

Gotta go to an appointment in the morning, leaving straight from home, going to work after wards.  I get to sleep in for a bit, that helps too.  The kids last day is today, off for a week.

Tomorrow is my Friday, off on Good Friday, thank gosh.  I got the kids Easter stuff, or part of it.  Gabby wanted a DS game and Alex wanted some new things for his DSi he just got this past weekend.  Need to get the Easter baskets made up, will do that Friday.  Thank gosh for payday  :)

Nothing too much planned, hopefully relaxing after tomorrow.  The days at work seem so long, we are not busy and this makes it worse.  I some days just right down hate work, but so glad at the same time to have a job. 

Nothing too much good on tv tonight, been surfing the channels to find something that appeals to me, but nothing yet  :-\

Happy Wednesday all  :D

I'm curious about your lawn-mowing business, Debbie.  Do you have to provide the mower, or do the customers?  Are they huge lawns where you need a riding mower?

It is Friday, was off today (thank gosh).  Took Alex to his friends house for the weekend.  Went to Walmart and picked up Easter basket stuff and flowers for my mom.  I got her potted purple Tulips wrapped in decorative Easter foil.  Picked my daughter up, after dropping the candy off since it was 77 degrees out today.  We went to Friendly's to eat, then back to Walmart (at another location) to get her something for her good report card and a few things I did not get before.  We got home around 6:30, so not been home too long.  I did manage to sweep and mop all my floors and wash dishes.  Working on laundry now.  I never stop cleaning it seems.  It is nice having the apartment, not too much to do like it was with my house and all the floors to clean.  Tomorrow have to take Gabby to gymnastics and not sure where else after that.  I am pooped after driving over 80 miles today. 

Happy Friday all  8)

Post by: CFOXWELL101 on April 19, 2009, 06:31:17 pm
Thats right Rose, your surgery is Monday.  I hope things go super smooth.  Let us know how it went as soon as you can.

Took Gabby to gymnastics yesterday morning, to her dads to get a few things, then home to get changed for a birthday party.  Alex came home, was with my sister at a MS walk.  Went to the park, which was packed from an Earth Day festival.  Stayed and waited for a couple hours, walked through the zoo with Alex.  Came home, Gabby got her bath and off to the mall.  Stayed there until 9 and then came home.  I was tired and so were the kids.

Today, got up, took Gabby to the zoo, she missed going yesterday, closed early.  Waited for the gift shop to open back up after the ladies lunch break.  Went to McDonalds, then to Ollie's to get headphones for the library and then across town to the library.  Stayed there a couple hours, took a small ride to Walmart on the other side of town and did grocery shopping.  Stopped to Dunkin Donuts in town and then came home.  Unloaded groceries and I am sitting watching tv now.  I am ready for another day off.  Alex is sick, sinus problems from the way it sounds.  Gabby is watching Scooby Doo on the other tv and all is quiet for now.

I am so not ready for work, I need a rest, which I dont get too much of anymore. 

Gabby loves gymnastics and the people there are great.  I love watching the kids do their routines and practice.  I just hope she sticks with it and does real good. 

Happy Sunday all,  :)

Wow!  I feel tired after hearing about everything you did this weekend, Charlene!  Today I have spent doing laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, have ham bone soup in the crockpot and baked oatmeal cookies so that I won't starve this week!  We are having a barbecue tonight and going for our two mile hike since I won't be able to do that for a couple weeks.  After my foot gets fixed Monday AM, I will be laying flat on my back with my leg up for a few days, so I'll be back on here middle of the week or so.  Someone else be sure to put up Best Lines of the Day!!!

Hey Debbie, we had some crappy weather later on in the day.  It was sunny, in the mid 70's, then boom, a big ole thunderstorm and the temperature dropped 20 degrees in 1 hour.  

Thank gosh payday is coming up, my sad butt is broke.  We get paid every 2 weeks and I am still getting use to it after 4 years.  

The weather is suppose to be nice this weekend, so off to the park and zoo for us.  I love going there and walking.  Speaking of walking, Rose, hope you are doing good.  Hurry back girl.

Happy Tuesday nite, what is left of it.

Hey yall,
Good News! we will be moving into our completely refurbished house next week. Now comes the fun stuff, picking out the furniture, fridge,shower curtains and all that stuff. We have to just get a little at a time.
I think we can still stay in this Fema trailer a little longer. I know I am not moving over there until we have 2 tv's and cable and phone.
I am so excited. Maybe we can live in it a few months before Hurricane season comes around again!

It has been a pretty decent weekend so far.  It did rain a bit this morning, but nothing too bad.  Not too warm, the sun kept coming and going. 

I came home today to police at the next building over.  I just knew that my son, the trouble get into'er he is, had gotten into something bad.  I was wrong, thank gosh on that part.  The man on the first floor, an older man who had/rode a cool scooter was robbed and murdered.  The cops would not tell anything, since they were not sure and could not give out info.  The crime scene unit left about 8 pm, had been there for 8 hours.  They were not sure how long he had been dead, had the mail man open the mailbox to see if he had gotten yesterdays mail and had his mail from today to see what they could find.  The crime scene unit guys had their white booties on their shoes and all.  The cops hung around, about 2 uniformed and 1 not.  They have the yellow tape on the front and even on the dumpster for a while.  Man, it is scary, makes me want to lock everything up and not even walk to my van to get anything.  The apartment building I live in is a crowded kind of place, so whoever did this had ba--s.  I think they wanted his scooter and whatever, kind of like a crime of steeling kinda deal.  I hope they catch whoever did this, just a shame.

My daughter is like freaking out, I told her not to worry, even though I am.  I dont want to scare the poor kid to death.  Just sucks  :(

It is raining here too, and as per the weather report for the whole week too UGH!! 

It is so sad that the man in the next building over was killed.  He was 61 and seems to not have a lot.  They moved some of his things out yesterday and still have all the lights on. 

Work was crappy today, as it usually is.  I have never worked at such a crappy place, the boss is an a--, his wife is lazy and a snitch.  The whole bleepin' place drives me nuts. 

Happy Monday nite all,

Hope the sunshine visits soon.

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on May 07, 2009, 07:48:06 am
Its Natalie that graduated from nursing school...Adara doesnt graduate until next May....
Natalie is my oldest daughter and Adara the baby girl...

Going today with Adara to Lexington she has  her last final of the semester today at noon...
she will be going back on sunday she is taking a summer class for 4 weeks and she will be home the first week in June for the summer....she will be back on the weekends...........Natalie won a scholarship award yesterday for 300.00 dollars we were so excited...The Joy Rudenga Memorial Scholarship Award she was a student at  the nursing school she graduated 10 yrs ago and her husband shot and killed her
...Her family give some money out of each of their paychecks to pay for the scholarship its usually 500.00 but they could only afford 300.00 this year...I thought that was so sad how she got murdered from domestic violence and her family not having lots of money still honors her memory to help another nursing student out...Its amazing how generous most of the time people with not lots of money give more...
We all were so proud of Natalie we could bust she has come a long way and had a long struggle  but she has  finally gotten to where she needs to be...Thank the good Lord with lots of prayers she made it...
So mothers and dads dont ever give up on your children when they make mistakes dont toss them aside
keep loving them and trying to help...Because there were lots of times  years ago I would have liked to but didnt....Im so proud to be her Mom I have been blessed with 2 great girls and a  wonderful  grandson he is smart and is tops in his grade ...............
Thanks for listening to me brag I dont mean to but Im so proud :D

Hey ladies.

Congrats Debbie to your daughter for passing her test.  I never was a good test taker and gosh knows my grades (UGH!!)

Tomorrow my son goes to court for his incident at school.  I am worried as to what will go on.  He is charged with some pretty hefty charges and could go to a boys home across the bridge.  I guess what will be, will be.  We go tomorrow morning at 9 am, that is when court starts, could sit for more then 4-5 hours until the case is heard.  The public defender seems to think, from her experience, that he will get community service and probation.  These kids are going to drive me nuts.

I took off Friday, making it a long 4 day weekend, will be so nice.

No plans for my long weekend, but, will find something to get into.

Post by: marguerite on May 19, 2009, 09:15:25 pm
Congats Deb! I know you are so proud of Adara!
Is it time for some tomatoes? yummy!
You must physically be in shape, because I believe if I had to get out in this heat
and mow and weed eat, I would probably pass out!



Fox, I will keep you and your son in my prayers tonight. I know everything will turn out for the best!

Today was a wonderful day for me. After living in that Fema trailer for 6 months (and a noisy hotel for 3 months) we are finally in our home.(Ike hit here exactly 9 months ago on the 13th) We changed so many things this time, like putting ceramic tile in the living room and the rest of the house, we put berber carpet.
Our small town is bringing in new stores and our 1 grocery store enlarged and now has so much more room. They are adding new items.
There is talk circulating that they are thinking of putting a waffle house here or an IHOP  We have so many fast food places and one Mexican restaurant.
I am so excited picking out new furniture. I hope we get to live in it at least for a few years before we go underwater from these bayous again. There are still many people in Fema trailers, but things are moving forward.

Oh so happy for you Carey...Foxwell  hope everything goes well at court ...
Kids sometimes can make mistakes but hopefully he will learn from it thats the main thing and if you can keep your nerves its hard...I hadnt raised boys  only had girls my oldest daughter Natalie she went through some rough yrs after she graduated high school and she is doing fine now she is the one that is a nurse my baby daughter has one more year in  college she had all A's this semester again ....
She never gave us an ounce of problem ...So thats how it goes...No sibling is like the other...Mom had 7 kids and none of us are alike we all have our own personalities I think I am the most like Mom ..
I have  lots of her traits ...I dont think I have her patience which she had plenty she had too   ;)

That must be a wonderful feeling to be back in your home!  I'm so happy for you!

Well, the court date did not go too well.  The Master of the court put my son in a detention center for a week.  They are doing a PDI, just checking to make sure he has nothing else on his record and then he goes to court May 27th for this hearing.  I guess they are going to court us to pieces.  I wish they would just hurry up and figure out what they are going to do.  I cried from the time the man made his decision, on and off through the day and night.  I did go to work Thursday, not a good idea, was too upset to do anything.  My son called from the nurses office, he was sick and then I fell to pieces all over again.  Had a small anxiety attack in the bathroom at work, my eyes were all red and puffy.  Man, this has been mess.  They are thinking of putting the electronic monitor on him as well.  I agree what he did was wrong, but electronic monitoring, the poor kid has to stay home pretty well all the time, no going out or skateboarding.  This just sucks, I am tore up about the whole mess. 

No plans this weekend, maybe Sunday or Monday.  I get to visit Alex Sunday afternoon, so that will be a help. 

Hope everyone has a great Friday nite  :)

I sure hope the site works today.  I was going to catch up on posting magazine articles lastnight, but the site wouldn't open at all.  Then I read that there was some kind of server glitch with all the SMF sites.

Anyway, I'll probably get a chance to post later in the day.  I'm headed to some out-of-town craft stores.

All we hear on the news is recession, recession, recession.  Well, some of these reporters "better head to Jerry's!"  Jerry's is our local home improvement which has Lowe's and Home Depot beat all to he!!.  We went there for just three landscape timbers which cost just under $6 total for a little yard project we are working on.  But you should see that place!  We had to park a long ways out, and there are so many people shopping, and you should have seen the line for the check out!!!  Wow!  Apparently people are still spending their $$$ on home improvement, and Jerry's must be making a fortune!

I dont get the legal system they will probably punish your son more than someone that murdered someone...Just makes me ill sometimes nothing in this life is fair........
I feel your pain because my oldest daughter when she was young made me cry  lots...
Your son with your love he I hope learns from all he has been through but he has to want to...
I will pray for you and him ;)

I hope the severe thunderstorm by-passes you and Mr. Rose, Rose.  I was watching my tape of OLTL tonight and actually heard the Emergency Broadcast System for real.  First time ever!  Usually it's just a test around here.  Anyway, they made it sound horrific in your county, but they also mentioned the dangerous hours would be between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.  I wonder if people really get that much advanced notice or if they messed up on the a.m./p.m. thing?  (OLTL comes on at 1:00 p.m.)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on June 04, 2009, 11:42:17 pm
Hmmm.  I wonder if they didn't mean PM.  We had a terrific storm come thru here this afternoon, and I heard there was a tornado warning further north of here.  Mr. Rose said he literally saw snow on the side of the road on the way home!  How weird is that?!!!  :D


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on June 04, 2009, 11:46:58 pm
Crazy!

We had another thunderstorm pass thru here earlier today, too.  Not as bad as the one we had the other day (lost electricity that day).  But it was bad enough to make me stay at work longer than usual to wait out the downpour.

Last night we drove to a small town up North of us named Colmesneil. Everyone who is from there pronounces it without the "S".
It is about an hour and a half drive for us.
First time in my life I ever went and had makeup put on at Merle Norman. (have to buy 2 of their products to get the makeup done.)
I usually don't wear makeup.
My Nephew graduated with honors.
It is such a small town that there were only 53 seniors graduating.
It was held inside the gymnasium and air conditioned (yeah!)
We drove back in the dark which is something very unusual for hubby and I.
It's the 1st time we left our cat alone inside this new house and thankfully, he didn't tear up the few pieces of furniture we have.
My nephew is planning to continue college near Houston. (from a very small town to a big city)
He will learn what life is really about and how things are soooo different.
I can remember my feeling of freedom when I was his age!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on June 06, 2009, 04:50:48 pm
Congratulations on your nephew's graduation!  Sounds like you had a fun evening.

I've always thought about trying out Merle Norman ever since I saw an ad for their spring makeup line.  Do you have to make an appointment, or can you just walk in?  I don't usually wear much makeup (either a little bit of lipstick and call it good, or a little bit of lipgloss and call it good).  Maybe I'll check out their lipsticks/lipglosses sometime.

The economy is very weird.  Last night we listened to the news story about millions of children in America literally being hungry now due to the recession.  Then we saw the complete opposite story for spending when we went to look at yard statuary today.  We didn't buy anything, but we walked thru a really nice and large display of all concrete fountains, benches, animals, statues etc.  Very expensive stuff.  Then the guy said his selection was very poor because people have been buying like crazy!  Amazing.

Got home this afternoon, overcast day and near +70, so I thought I'd better wash windows which I probably haven't done since last year.  Used that Windex Outdoor stuff on the outside, but I didn't realize what a big hole there was in my fairly new hose.  OMG!  I was totally soaked and cold!  Since I was already wet, I kept going and did a half-a$$ed job, and I quit!

Back to the economy, we went out to a mall today that I probably haven't been to since last Christmas.  Wow!  It was empty.  There are the big anchor stores on each end, but the half mile walk between the two is a lot of empty stores.  There were not many people shopping, and not many people at the theater.

Sorry I didn't get best lines of the day up the last couple of days.  I was just too busy and went thru Y&R pretty fast.  You are all welcome to start that thread any day you have a best line to put up!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: CFOXWELL101 on July 11, 2009, 05:24:14 pm
I have not watched Y&R except like every other day.  I have them recorded, but, never have the time to sit and watch it. 

Today has been a pretty decent day.  Not too hot, a decent breeze, but looks like rain.  We did go to a couple stores today, just to window shop, too broke to buy anything. 

The kids are bored, if they are not on the go all the time then they are miserable.  I am the opposite, need some down time.  I guess old age is kicking in (lol)

I have been wondering when the economy is going to pick up.  We hear on the tv all the time that it is going to get better, but around my area, businesses are not doing too well and working on skeleton crews.  This has to end soon, if not there will be lots of houses, but no one living in them. 

Happy Saturday nite all  8)

Hey Guys!
We have plenty of work going on around here (especially if you are a carpenter,plumber,roofer,electrician or anything to do with building because of the Hurricane).

They keep putting up apartments, houses and hotels.  Wonder who is going to live in them?

I feel bad for the guys and women that have to work out in this heat and not pass out. I remember how it felt when we didn't have air conditioning in our car.
Hope yall are doing well!

The site's pictures are listed under "gallery" near the top of the page.  Except they're only Y&R characters.  Lastnight Debbie posted a link to her daughter's pictures, and I apparently clicked on it before she removed the post.  (I guess I should've kept my mouth shut.  Sorry, Debbie!)  It was smart to remove it, though, since you never know about identity theft and stuff these days.

I've had a busy day, but there is one project I hope to complete this evening.  My hairdresser was getting rid of several years of nice magazines that she keeps for clients to read while they are waiting, etc.  She asked if I wanted to go thru any of them, so I came home with about three dozen including Martha Stewart, Country Living, and Sunset.  I've been going thru them for recipes and craft ideas.  Then I'm giving them to the church rummage sale.  I have to go work for the emergency food pantry there tomorrow, so I want to get thru those magazines and get rid of them.  I have magazines everywhere!!!

I saw the craziest thing ever today!  I was at an out-of-town mall, cutting through Sears, and you know how most of the big-box stores have the cash register in the middle of the store for everyone to see?  Well, this woman who appeared to be in her 80s was literally standing there in a Dr. Rey's Slimming Bodysuit and nothing else!  Another woman who looked like she was in her 60s asked the clerk, "Can you remove the security tag on this so my mom can wear this out of the store?"  Unbelievable!  (BTW, the clerk said no.  LOL!)

It's been a sad day to be an Oregon Duck fan after their lackluster performance and totally out-of-control behavior by LeGarrette Blount.  The Oregon coach and administration have suspended Blount for the season, thus ending his college career. 

I was at the Duck store at the mall today, and pretty much everyone was saying the same thing, "Who wants to be seen wearing Duck clothes?"  What a shameful way to start the season.

Post by: Lynn1 on September 04, 2009, 10:32:57 pm
I know what you mean, Rose!  That was absolutely ridiculous when Blount went berserk after the game!  I'm glad he got suspended for the season.  Anything less would've been a slap on the wrist.  Not only did he punch that Boise St. player, but he also hit one of his own teammates, plus he tried going after the fans.  It was insane!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on September 04, 2009, 10:34:05 pm
All of us Duck fans are so disappointed.  Hopefully the Ducks will put this shameful episode behind them and move forward.  What a tough start for the new coach.

its not a  reflection of the Oregon  football team just cause one player messes up he  probably just has some anger things to work out...
Its unfortunate but it wont hurt the football family I wouldnt think...
Good Luck to your team the rest of the year....

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on September 05, 2009, 09:57:16 pm
Yes, one game doesn't make a season.  One bright note from the game is that Oregon has a true freshman punter who kicked just awesome during the first game!  He was the #1 high school punter in the nation last year and looks like the real deal!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on September 08, 2009, 08:57:00 am
I heard the coach say it wouldnt hurt the season they made the right choice and they can go on from that and learn
thats not a direct quote just something along the lines of what he was talking about...

This Sunday (September 13th) will be the 1 year Anniversary of Hurricane Ike.
Our small town is having a big get together for all the residents that have stayed in our town and rebuilt.
The Community Center is having speakers and people catering.
A photography place is setting up a booth for everyone who lost so many valued and irreplaceable pictures and they are going to take photo's for free.
Think they are going to show films from the storm.
We still have about 930 Fema trailers left in town. Some people are still rebuilding.
New businesses are coming into town.
I feel so blessed to be back in our house (and so does kitty). He can run through it and gets to sleep in the garage at night and eat worms,crickets and lizards.
The forecast is saying 90% rain.
Hubby and I bought some special made T-shirts to wear to this celebration. Supposed to be bands and all kinds of fun stuff.
(I was surprised that the T-shirts were only $12.50)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on September 11, 2009, 11:16:21 pm
That sounds like quite the event, Marguerite!  What do your special-made T-shirts say?


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on September 12, 2009, 09:42:33 am
Hey Lynn!
I was so happy to see that the T-shirts were a gray (instead of the usual white).
It has a cartoon like drawing of a hurricane on the front.
The hurricane is colored with blue,red and white. It says IKE in the middle.
 "We survived" is written in red letters across the top of the back and then it says
Bridge city, Texas 9/13/08.
Then on further down the back it has sponsors (like local businesses).
This was a life altering event for us.
Thanks to all who gave prayers!      :)

It is the anniversary of when Jerry and I met 38 yrs ago we met at a tractor pull ....One of my friends  had a  date with my hubbys friend and she brought me along...we started dating and we married  3mths and 12 days later...We have been together ever since ;)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on September 13, 2009, 04:49:09 pm
Hey guys!
It was a fun day. The heat was terrible, sweaty hot but there were places to stand or sit in the shade. They had the prominent speakers and said Prayer and our Pledge of Allegiance inside an air cond building (that didn't cool off).
My friend and her hubby got interviewed by a local tv station to describe what happened to them when they stayed even after mandatory evacuation had been called.
My friend explained that when they had walk thru 4 ft. of water and thinking about big snakes and alligators swimming alongside her..(Yikes) They had to get rescue trucks to go thru the town and pick up people that did not leave.
Now there is a new law that if you do not leave, you will be taken to jail and fined..lol..how can they take you to a flooded cell?..lol..
I noticed that by the front door they were giving away the SAME T-shirts that we had just went and bought. I could have kicked myself for that..
All in All it was a good day and I hope yall had one too!
Happy Anniversary of you and Jerry's 1st meeting. Did you KNOW when yall met that he was going to be the one?

This morning I searched all over the place for my keys and finally found them outside in the lock to the front door.  No one broke in and no one stole my car, so it must be my lucky day!  Then I was part way to work and realized that my lunch was still sitting in the fridge.  Time to catch up on sleep and get my memory back!  Although if I can stay awake long enough to watch Y&R, I might post more tonight.  Otherwise I'll catch you all tomorrow.   :)

Has anyone else ever had a problem with their hair falling out?  I've lost a lot of hair in the last two months, especially on top and the right side.  Now I've figured out it was mostly caused by my thyroid problem, have new medication and my fingers crossed that it will grow back.    :(

no ....Hope  the meds help

I don't know if it's the same thing, but when Drucilla had a storyline about her hair falling out, the condition was called "alopecia."  Maybe Google would bring up some sites for treatment ideas?  I hope the thyroid meds make a difference!

Thanks, but I have hypothyroidism.  New meds should help.  Today was the first time it seemed back to normal in months! 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread joy rudenga
Post by: kimgardnerrn on October 06, 2009, 09:48:37 am
hello,
for some reason i found a message sent to someone who'd graduated nursing school and it seems they know someone who earned the joy rudenga memorial fund award. i felt an urgency to tell you about joy. you see i was friends with joy and her husband micheal when they died. there is a lot to know about joy, first she was named correctly, she was a joy. her smile crinkled her pug nose and you couldn't help but think how cute. she and micheal married even though he had just been released from prison for attempted murder of an ex girlfriend. she lived but from what i understand she fought hard. as i've been told that courageous woman did the unthinkable, she felt micheal was rehabilitated and she helped to get him released. when i met micheal i agreed he was better, remorseful for that action. so they married and before long joy became pregnant. we shared meals together, movies, what have ya and then micheal changed.he wouldn't allow her to come over any more, so she'd sneak, i saw bruises, she had lucas and she left him. june 20,1999, father's day, he shot her holding their son in her arms- they were at his mother's home - he took lucas got into joy's car took lucas to his sister's drove to a wooded area in metcalfe county and took his own life. he wasn't going back to jail.
so there we all were. there was death. there was going  to be no justice for joy. saddness, tears, regret, hopes, what if's, anger still today, but no justice. my last words to her was  "he'll kill you." she said "i know." she knew. she took the precautions she had a dvo but it didn't stop that 9mm from entering her brain and taking our friend, mother, daughter, so many things she was to so many. i'll never see her smile again but sometimes i think i feel her and i miss her and God i'm sorry. i didn't help. i knew, she knew and in the end we were right. i never wanted to be right about that. so now there is a stone to visit in a cemetary in the middle of nowhere where you can go if you want to visit her. she's not at home anymore. taken too soon but i am thankful for her and i'm thankful that the lpn school remembers my friend JOY.

We went to Super Walmart and bought a great bike. With the weather beginning to change, I can get some exercise in!
We didn't want the the kind that had handbrakes (the ones you have to bend over real far to reach the handlebars).
Temp was about 60 degrees this morning and hubby and I sat out in the garage and drank our coffee.
 It was a beautiful morning!
Think this next week, temps are going back up to about 89 and muggy  :'(
Going to enjoy this wonderful weather as long as I can!
Deb, let me know how that movie was. The previews look good!

I'm having such a good week!  I've got 80% of the garden cleaned out and covered with the leaves I raked!  I've got my share of the pruning done.  Mr. Rose gets to do some yet with the chain saw--more power!!  Tomorrow it is supposed to be +74, and I'll be getting the windows washed.  All this, and my foot doesn't hurt!  Hurray!  Plus I've got a pork roast dinner in the crockpot!

Here's a gross, but true story for you!  After school I was talking to a parent out in the breezeway, and something dark dropped from the ceiling and down the front of my shirt.  It was wiggly, too, but I didn't want to freak out in front of the parent, so I tried to finish the conversation.  But the parent freaked out on my behalf and yelled, "A bug just dropped down the front of your shirt!  You'd better take care of that!"  I ran to the kids' restroom since that was close, but it was full of parents and kids.  (Can't exactly flash them!)  So I ran to the staff restroom next and got a moth out of my bra.  Yuck!!!

I saw a show on Hallmark channel last night. (didn't catch the name of the Show)
It had Jacylyn Smith,the old Coleen and Murphy!
Jacylyn Smith played a judge and Murphy (her dad) was in the hospital.
Coleen played a rebellious youth that the judge took into her home and life.

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on October 27, 2009, 10:50:25 pm
For me, it's Desperate Housewives on Sunday and Grey's Anatomy on Thursday.  I like how Grey's added the folks from the other hospital this year in the merger storyline; kinda spiced things up!

A lot of old memories were shown of Victors life as he recorded a message to Faith.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on October 29, 2009, 09:05:53 pm
Yeah, it mostly revolved around Victor taping a message for Faith.  He knows that people are going to tell her bad things about him as she grows up, so he wanted her to hear his side of things.  Viewers were treated to tons of flashbacks, ranging from holding Julia's lover hostage in the basement to more current things.

Oregon State won.  There was a really scary moment for Cal.  Their top running back went up high for a catch, came down on his back and neck extremely hard, couldn't move.  They took him to the hospital, and later they announced he has a concussion but was moving his extremities just fine.

Ugh!  I'm on day 2 of CBS not working, so no Y&R for me.  >:(  Then I found out the cable company got rid of it, but I should be getting a new lineup chart soon so I can reprogram my T.V.  I think CBS is moving to a different channel. What a pain!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on December 02, 2009, 09:06:00 pm
I re-programmed my T.V. and VCR and found the new channel for CBS.  Let's hope I've got it set up correctly to record for tomorrow!

The problem was that the apt. complex has a huge block of cable packages, so the cable bill is included in the rent.  But when the cable company sent out notices about the lineup changing as of Dec. 1st, it went to the managers since they've got the cable accounts.  They never bothered notifying the tenants.  At least I think I've got it fixed now.

That was a great game!  It is such a huge rivalry!

This must be post-game letdown day or something.  I lost a needle when interrupted one too many times while sewing something, got out my warmest winter clothes because it is freezing here and washed them with Kleenex--aaaggghhh!, can't find the topper for my little Christmas tree, dropped my keys on my toes on my good foot--Ouch!, glittered a Christmas project and spilled the whole darn bottle on the floor, and hey, newspapers down on the floor just don't cut it when using spray adhesive.  My socks are sticking to the floor.    >:(

OK.  Still glittering things.  Now I want to know has anyone out there ever glittered a live poinsettia?  I just want to add a touch of glitter, not a lot.  The ones at the greenhouse were coated with lots, but I have seen one before at a friend's house that had just a little bit of sparkle on the leaves.  Tried googling it, but only found out that a lot of people don't approve of painted poinsettias or glitter on them.

I apparently live in the sun belt of the state (although it's raining cats and dogs out there right now).  On the news tonight they said don't travel north, south, east, or west of here because of heavy snow.  I guess they aren't letting motorists cross the border into California, either.  I'll take the rain over the heavy snow anyday!

I agree with ya on that! This whole week has pretty much been boring.
Sharon and Adam getting married was nice.
Seeing NuMalcolm come home was nice.

Wondering about the belching woman. Nick endlessly running after Sharon..getting old!

It's 48 degrees here and a lot of fog.
There hasn't been anything on Tv so I have been going to bed early and waking up and drinking coffee about 5AM.
Hope yall have a Happy and Safe New Year!

Go Ducks!

I hear you!  We squeezed in our two mile walk this AM between rain storms.  It's about +50, so plenty warm and felt so good to be outside again!  We had a very cold December here.

I've been feeling the same way about tv.  Last night I watched Desperate Housewives, and I discovered I'd missed their last episode before Christmas.  I don't know how that happened!    :D

Just popping in for a quick hello!  I couldn't get my computer to work for most of the day, but now it seems to be working.  Too bad the buzzer on the dryer just rang... better get the sheets out and start making the bed  (when I'd rather waste time online).

Post by: CFOXWELL101 on January 10, 2010, 06:54:15 pm
Speaking of sheets, mine are in the dryer too.  I have a test tomorrow, a colonoscopy.  This is the 2nd one I have had in 7 years.  The beginning of December I went to the ER thinking I had appendicitis, but ended up being an intestional problem.  I am hungry and my stomach is all cramped from the nasty stuff I have to drink (yuck!!!)  My test is at 1:00 and then after that I want a Big Mac (lol)

Have a great Sunday nite all,

Post by: FeistyRedhead on January 15, 2010, 04:55:19 pm
I had the afternoon off from work. Instead of getting paid to work I've been doing laundry (7 loads) and cleaned house. Who says stay at home moms/housewives have it easy? Ha! I'd much rather go to an office and work than have to do all that hard work around the house every day. It's exhausting! Kudos to those of you that stay home. I think you all deserve a huge raise!

Post by: Rose on January 17, 2010, 06:42:00 pm
Made lots of potato sausage yesterday; then we had a feast!  Our friends who were teaching us how to make it cooked the potato sausage three different ways!  Of course, I forgot my camera!   :(  Now I'm moving on to my never-ending problem--cleaning out junk.  Bought a new small bookcase today which should help!    :)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

What were the 3 different ways, Rose?


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

Oven-roasted, pan-fried, boiled.

It's a miracle; the site works again!  I couldn't get it to work at all this morning, so I went for a 5-mile walk instead.  Maybe it was the computer's sneaky way of making me get some exercise!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on January 22, 2010, 11:31:03 pm
Today I was trying to hang a curtain up and slammed the rod across my "Spirit of Christmas" Willow Tree angel that was sitting on the window ledge and broke her arm off.  I'm thinking this may be bad karma to break the "Spirit of Christmas!"  Probably won't be any presents next Christmas!  Haha!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 23, 2010, 10:54:23 am
Sorry to hear that, Rose.  If it makes you feel any better, there was one year where I accidentally beheaded baby Jesus when I was putting away my Nativity set.  I glued him back together, and now you can't even tell.  :)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on January 23, 2010, 03:49:45 pm
Yeah, I glued her back together.  We seem to be the only ones talking, Lynn.  What do you want to talk about?    :)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 23, 2010, 05:03:50 pm
I'd love to talk more, but I'm popping in sporadically between laundry, baking cupcakes, grading papers, writing lesson plans, doing midterm progress reports, and getting 7 days' worth of assignments put together for a kiddo who's going to Hawaii (without me!). So I'll be hit and miss.  


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

Busy, busy!  What kind of cupcakes?


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on January 23, 2010, 08:57:28 pm
Well, the recipe calls them "Jo-Jo's Cupcakes," but I think they need a better name than that.  It's just a chocolate cake mix with a cream cheese/sugar/chocolate chip mixture that you put in the center of each one.  I'm just in the mood to bake this weekend!  I think I'm making salted nut bars tomorrow.  I can't eat all that stuff on my own, so I'll probably bring a bunch to work with a sign about "sweetening up our Monday."

It sounds like you are getting a lot done, Debbie!  I've purchased upholstery fabric for two of my living room chairs, and now we're waiting for the guy to have time to reupholster them.  Probably it will be in two weeks.   Plan to paint the main part of the house after that gets done.  We also need to update bathrooms badly.  Not looking forward to that.    :(

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on March 09, 2010, 05:29:45 pm
it seems to be some better today at least no noises....
I put drops in last night


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 09, 2010, 07:37:47 pm
Mr. Rose says he can hear fluid squishing around when he has problems.  Also, since multiple ear infections, he has ringing in his ears all the time.  I've gone to the doctor twice for my ears.  Once I was deaf.  Easy fix--wax clean out.  The other time I had high pitched noises, and it was due to a sinus infection.  So I guess if you don't get better soon, you better have a doctor take a look in there!   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

Oregon football players=big trouble.  Quarterback Masoli and running back Embry have been charged with felony burglary.  If they are found guilty, they could go to prison for five years.  Masoli had a terrific season last year and was being talked about as a Heisman trophy candidate.  Embry has already been dismissed from the team.  Excellent running back L. James is going to court Fri. with an apparent change of plea and for sentencing for assault on his girlfriend.  Another player was charged with drunk driving.  Two others were involved in some big brawl on campus and in trouble.  Chip Kelly is supposed to announce after tomorrow's court hearings if the players are suspended or dismissed.

Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 12, 2010, 03:04:35 pm
Running back L. James pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harrassment.  He got sentenced to 10 days jail, and his time already served will count.  Other charges were dropped. 


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

James is suspended for the first game of the fall season.

Masoli and Embry pleaded guilty to theft.  They each got one year of probation, 140 hours community service, combined restitution of $5,000 to the victim.  Embry was already kicked off the team for violating team rules.  Masoli is suspended for a year.

Well, they have moved on from having the Ducks on the front page of the paper.  Now everyone is all wild because they are changing the name of the Beltline that goes around Eugene and naming it after a prominent businessman who died last year.  The controversy is that it will cost $250,000 to change the name on all the road signs.   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

So THAT'S what they're talking about!  I saw on one news station lastnight about a public meeting regarding Beltline.  Then I flipped to another station and they had the same story, except they were calling it Randy Pape Beltway, and I was confused because they were showing the same road.  Plus I never heard of Randy Pape before.  I don't live there, but my vote would be to keep it named Beltline.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

There are also public meetings going on about improving/widening Beltline--especially the area between River Road and Delta Hwy.

Our friend Glen I hadnt heard anymore from him he is in his 80s and it makes it more severe with his health he just hasnt got a lot to build on...I hope he makes it  thanks for all the prayers..
There was a bad accident near here on I 65 this morning a semi crossed the median and hit a van carrying 10 people their were 11 people that lost their lives...the semi burned up  its been multiple accidents there along that stretch of I 65

The Mennonite family were from Burkesville Ky thats about 50 miles east of me.....
They were on their way to Iowa to a wedding they had the funeral yesterday and there were thousands of Mennonites all over the United States.....I just admire those people I am a Christian and I have faith but theirs is so  forgiving they just live right by the Bible Scriptures like we all are suppose too....
It just makes you take notice of how truly precious life is...I firmly believe we all have an allotted time to die and when God is ready for us we are going to go........
Its a tragic way to die like they did but God has his reasons we dont understand but he knows all...
I also read this morning that the trucking company has been known for letting drivers exceed the 60 hours in 7 days limit....So they dont know for sure they think he went to sleep because there isnt any skid marks where he tried to stop...so he didnt know what hit him either...It was the deadliest accident on Ky highways since 1988 when a bus was hit head on by a drunk driver going the wrong way...

Hey yall    :) Haven't posted here in a few days, so thought I would put in my 2 cents.
Deb...I saw on the news the other day about that awful accident in Kentucky. I was wondering how far that was from you. Prayers are with the families.
 I missed yesterdays show, so tuned in to Soapnet at 6 pm and saw it. Yesterdays show was awesome! It was much more interesting and exciting than a lot of these Friday and Monday's shows.    :D

So here's my Y&R story for the day.  When I was watching the show, there was some real strange scenes, hard to explain, but fading to black and white and like just the areas around Victor's mouth fading in and out etc.  I thought they were doing some real creative filming because the show kept rolling along!  Well, at the end, words came across the screen that the local cable company was having technical difficulties!  Mr. Rose came home and started watching Y&R, and he just started shouting that something was wrong with the recording!  LOL!

Hello!  Friday I didn't get to post because it was the school carnival, so that meant a 13-1/2 hour workday.  Then today I was out of town to visit some out-of-state family who were going to be up north in Oregon.  It was fun to see them!  Hopefully I can catch up on the boards in the late afternoon tomorrow, but I doubt I'll get to the quiz.

Good Sunday all.  Today is my finish what I did not get to do yesterday cleaning/lazee day.  It is cloudy outside, no rain yet, but I would say in the high 70's.  Our festival is this weekend, but I dont go, they serve alcohol and it gets a little out of hand some years and too crowded.  I always fear about loosing Gabby in a crowd, weird aren't I?  Hope you guys have a wonderful day.

Wind and rain here, but warm temps.  Mr. Rose and I weeded the last of the roses tonight, and I got them all fed.  Gray and gloomy weather, but hey, I have pink roses blooming already!  Also have rhodies, azaleas, iris and a snowball bush in full bloom.  Gotta love Oregon!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on May 18, 2010, 09:52:33 pm
That means I'll probably get the wind and rain tomorrow, Rose.  We had a beautiful, sunny day just an hour or so south of where you live!

3/4 inch rain here in the last 12 hours.  We have had nothing but rain.  Mr. Rose is off this week to build a new deck, and I was going to do massive yard work.  It's not happening.   :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on June 02, 2010, 10:05:53 pm
We're stuck going on a field trip to a farm on Friday, and the forecast is for massive rain.  ("Stuck" because we're going rain or shine.)  Not looking forward to that.

Miracle of miracles... it never rained on the field trip yesterday, even though the forecast was for 80% chance of heavy rain!  The worst that happened was coming home sunburned on a cloudy day.   :)

It was a downpour all spring here.  Oh my gosh, I don't think we'll ever catch up on yard work.  Plus we had a large flowering plum tree die.  I think the poor thing drowned.

My Magnolias are falling off the tree.
Does anyone know if this is usual? Just had these "little Gem" Magnolia trees planted a few months ago.
Right now they look like a Charlie Brown tree with blooms on them...lol...
They bloom so beautiful for one day and then next day they look like a deep fried onion ring. Then they fall off.  :'(
We are having a bit of a dry spell with temps about 99 degrees.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on June 05, 2010, 08:30:10 pm
Well, if it is +99 there, I'm guessing it's the heat.  Are they getting enough water?

We've had nothing but rain and cold all spring.  The winter blankets are still on the beds.  Now this weekend it is supposed to be 80+ and sunny.  That will be a shocker!  I better start digging out some shorts and sandals!

I'm so glad the site is working!  I loved today's show and wanted to see if anyone was talking!!!  Lynn, I will try to write the Victor blurb soon and get it to you.  I've got a lot of yard work to get done before dark so will probably email it tomorrow.  --Rose

I survived the torture chamber this morning (a.k.a. the dentist)!  It was really annoying because the tip of the water squirter thing was malfunctioning.  Even if the hygienist stopped pressing on the button, it would keep squirting water all over the place!  I was drenched before she finally switched tips.

Well, my cooking went down the tubes this month when it got to 90's.  Have the freezer well stocked with ice cream tho!  Between the strange weather and my vacation to CA, I am way behind on yard work, but my garden is a riot of flowers!  Kind of happy with that!

Post by: Rose on August 08, 2010, 09:54:08 pm
We are having a very mild August--really unusual for Eugene.  It's been in the 80's in the day and about 50 at night.  Today it stayed overcast with the marine layer until about 2 PM or so, and that's usually a fall weather pattern here.  There was no doubt in my mind!  I got out my fall boxes and dug thru them!  When I put them away last year, I thought I had way too much fall stuff.  But today I felt like, is that all there is???  I love fall!   


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread

Another overcast, fall-like morning in Eugene.  So strange for August!

Another overcast, fall-like morning in Eugene.  So strange for August!   

It's similar here, too.  I'm happy about it, though, because school starts in a couple of weeks, and I haven't been looking forward to all those bodies crammed into a classroom without air conditioning.  This weather would be perfect!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on August 11, 2010, 08:44:23 pm
Now we're headed the other way--back to the 90's.  Crazy weather!

Getting ready to watch the season finale of The Closer!  I never even heard of it until Greg Rikaart guest-starred on it however many years back, and I've been watching ever since!  I love that the main character is hooked on chocolate and closes each case with finesse!  She shows everyone else how it's done!  LOL!

How do you keep your hair looking good when it is so humid???  We've had more humidity than normal this September, and I've got frizz city going on.    :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on September 29, 2010, 09:18:47 am
My hairdresser recommended Aveda's Smooth Infusion.  It's supposed to defend against humidity for up to 12 hours.  So if I have that on hand, I use it.  Otherwise, I also like Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Styling Cream.  I can find that at any grocery store around here, or places like Walmart and Kmart.

I've worked in my classroom this morning, picked up a few more groceries, bought Christmas presents for my nieces and nephew, and I'm probably going to bake some pumpkin cookies later today because the stores don't seem to be selling my favorite pumpkin cookies this year... so I'll take care of getting my pumpkin fix myself!

Cool morning here.   :) about 66 degrees now. Wish it could stay like this all day.
Has anyone noticed that at 1:00 pm they have been showing classic episodes of the Y&R?
Yesterday they showed Michael and Laurens wedding. (Tom was in it) and Gloria was married to John.
Think they are just filling in since they have a open time slot.
If you get a chance watch for it. It will be on again today.

Thank God that we are almost at the end of hurricane season and all systems look clear.
Have a good weekend everyone!   :)

Post by: Rose on October 15, 2010, 05:40:08 pm
I did notice that they are showing classic episodes of Y&R right after B&B.  It confused me for a moment the first day!  I went to eat a late lunch in front of my tape and saw the old show--thought there was no new one that day!  Duh, my tape was not rewound yet!    ;)

Got all my roses pruned and weeded, cleaned out about 1/3 of my flower garden, Mr. Rose pruned a large hedge in the yard. Then we went out to a nursery and bought a smoke tree to put in the back, right in the middle of my rose garden.  Sure hope it lives!

It's supposed to rain all weekend here, so Mr. Rose and I finished the fall cleanup on the yard today.  Pulled out two roses, moved three roses, planted a smoke tree, cleaned out the flower garden, raked lots of maple leaves and put them on the garden.  I am a little sore.  Hope I can walk tomorrow!  It was a beautiful fall day for it tho.

A lot of cheering for the Ducks, another round of raking leaves and pruning, munching on apples & brickle dip, 27 trick or treaters at the door, and lights out because half of them were bigger/taller than me!  That was our quick weekend!

My computer seems to be having a problem, so if I disappear, you know what happened!  Also, I'm having an upper endoscopy on Mon. to remove a stricture from my esophagus; so I might not care for a while about the computer.  I'll be laying around in front of Y&R tho!

Wow, it sure is pouring buckets out there today!  I lucked out and was able to unload my car in between massive downpours.  Then I went to put gas in my car, only to be caught in a big hail storm.  Sounds like a stay-at-home-kind-of-day.  Hopefully I can catch up on the boards here later today... I still need to unpack, and I'm getting antsy to look at my stash of Christmas cards to decide which ones I'm going to use this year.

I can swallow solid food again after having esophagus dilation, but still have some pressure in my throat.  Hopefully that still goes away.  But the good part of this is it's a great time to clean/sort junk out when I don't feel good.  I'm just edgy enough to throw stuff out right and left!  Maybe my Christmas stuff will be well organized after this year!    :)

This has been a truly sad week in Eugene.  Two young men, seniors at South Eugene High School, drowned in the ocean last weekend.  They were at the Oregon Coast and were swept away by a sneaker wave. They were there for a retreat and several of them were on a walk and watching the surf.  They were fine young men, part of the Mr. Axemen pageant which benefits the Children's Miracle Network.

Temps here are beautiful. I know they won't last long until the humidity starts to jump in, but for now enjoying this so much.
Saw my 1st Magnolia bud bloom this morning. Took a pic of it. I can see new growth on all my hedges.
Spring has sprung    :D

It's starting to look like spring in Oregon, too, in spite of a lot of rain and cold.  We have plum trees in bloom, daffodils, hyacinth and a few other trees that bloom early.  :)


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: marguerite on March 24, 2011, 04:05:21 pm
The azaleas are blooming such a pretty deep colored pink.

I think they have them in Kentucky (Deb, let me know) but not sure about the other States.
Feisty...do you have azalea bushes in Minnesota?
Rose and Lynn...How about Oregon?
Maybe Mermaid does in Florida?
Just curious!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: FeistyRedhead on March 24, 2011, 05:48:50 pm
We have spring snow and ice here. Very rarely do we see the tulips in the spring. Either we have snow on the ground or they get zapped with cold weather. If we do get them they don't bloom until May.

I love azaleas. I grew up in Ohio and I remember them well. The beautiful pink flowers. They also come in white, don't they? I looked at the U of M site and it said they can be grown in Minnesota, but I honestly don't think I've seen any here. We have beautiful crab apple trees that get beautiful pink blooms on them in the spring. I'll try to remember to take pictures of them when they bloom later this spring.

Rose & Lynn....Do you have lightening bugs out in Oregon? I have a friend that lives in CA and she said she's never seen a lightening bug out there. Matter of fact, I had to explain what a lightening bug was to her. lol


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 24, 2011, 07:12:48 pm
I have not seen lightning bugs in Oregon.  We used to catch them in a jar in Minn. when I was a kid.

Yes, we have azaleas in Oregon.  We have a wide variety of colors.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on March 25, 2011, 09:56:42 pm
Rose is right that there are a wide variety of azalea colors in Oregon, Marguerite.  The school I work at has a couple of lavender ones in bloom right now.  Very pretty! 

And FeistyRedhead, I haven't seen any lightning bugs in real life in Oregon, but I've seen them on T.V. before.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to catch up on the boards sometime over the weekend.  I have a 6-hour drive home coming up and will probably stop here and there to break it up a little bit.  Have a good weekend, everyone!

I just thought I would pop in and let yall know that I saw Phyliss (Michele Stafford) in a Lifetime movie.
The name of it was "Like Mother,like daughter".  She played a 20 something yr.old's Mother. She was still beautiful, but not much make up and slinky dresses.

Sorry to hear that, Rose.  Since you mentioned getting high speed Internet, have you or Mr. Rose tried watching your missed episodes online at cbs.com?  I'd be curious to know if that works for you.

I've been reading a Debbie Macomber book called Angels at Christmas.  It is really fun to read a Christmas romance in the off-season!  There never seems to be enough time during the holidays to read!  So yes, I've been touched by Christmas in May!   :)

Big yard work week here.  Weeded and fed all my back yard roses today and hauled home tomatoes, geraniums and petunias to plant.  It's been so cold here this spring that we are way behind on everything.

How's this for irony?  I went to get a watch battery replaced today, and the clerk asked me where I last got the battery replaced at.  She showed me that a screw was missing from inside the watch, so the new battery was going to be dangling.  She was quite surprised when I told her, "You guys changed it last time!"  Ha ha!  The watch works, so I guess it's not the end of the world.  But it was fun watching the clerk squirm!

I finally bit the bullet and ditched dial-up for a faster-speed Internet service today!  I can actually read the Y&R actors' Twitter pages again!  And I was able to watch a preview for tomorrow's episode!  The only thing I don't like so far is where the computer had to go in order to avoid having a huge wire draped around the apartment.  So I've re-arranged furniture 3 times already and will probably tackle moving the couch tomorrow.  (I'm sure the downstairs neighbor would appreciate it if I stopped moving furniture around for the night.  LOL!)

Hey Lynn! Maybe you could try to place rugs over those wires? I've had that same problem.

Thursday night we got some much needed rain. There was a lot of lightning and thunder.
Hubby and I heard a big "BOOM"!!!!! :'(
Burned out a 2 phone handset. Knocked out our circuit board for the air conditioning in the attic.
Thank goodness we didn't lose our electricity or our internet.
Way to much $$$$$$$$$ for the air conditioning guy endorsed by the Better Business Bureau.

We have our cable, phone and internet through Time Warner.

If Murphey's law that applied it sure did that day.     :'(

But... We did need the rain and so thankful for that. Maybe we will get out of this drought.   ;)

Wow, that's a bad time to be without a/c during your heat wave!  We were forecast to have thunder storms today, but I haven't seen or heard any where I live.  I'd be glad to send some rain to you, though!

I've had this huge rose garden across my back yard, 18 different roses, for about the last 15 years.  So anyway, it's time for a change, and I've been ripping out half my rose garden.  I have to say I felt heartless today when I cut a beautiful bouquet and then chopped my Chicago Peace rose down to the ground!

Hadnt done a lot today I cooked lunch at 130 ate and hubby helped cleanup. Now he has gone to a  gun shop. I took a nap now up and no sun and they are calling for  rain tonight and tomorrow rain and changing over to snow showers...Well the s word I dont like ugh. I just am counting the days until spring.

We are having a strange dry, cold winter here.  It's in the 20's at night, and it's too cold for me!  No rain, and no snow in the mountains which is not a good thing.  I'd take our more normal 50's and rain any day!  But either way, I'm like you, Debbie--looking forward to spring!!!  Still have a bouquet of Christmas greenery in my kitchen window, but the tulips will be there before too long!

Post by: Rose on March 21, 2012, 12:25:52 pm
Now I'm really jealous, Debbie.  We woke up to 4+ inches of heavy, wet snow.  I wonder if my daffodils that were blooming will survive.  Probably they'll be laying on the ground.   :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on March 21, 2012, 10:53:19 pm
And just a little hour south of you, Rose, we had a massive downpour all day.  Some of the grassy areas in town are now lakes with ducks swimming in them.  Literally.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 22, 2012, 11:39:12 am
When it finally stopped snowing yesterday, we had 6+ inches of wet, heavy snow.  Our next door neighbors had a huge old flowering plum tree come down.  Their whole front yard is full of broken tree!  We have some damaged bushes.  Today the sun is shining, and it is melting.  Most snow ever for Eugene this late in March.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on March 22, 2012, 02:50:59 pm
Oh wow snow ...It's been in the  80s all this week and last week unusually warm for March...
Been busy today and yesterday  I have mowed  9 yards this week..Just love this weather I think it's calling for rain tonight and tomorrow ;)

So I'm out of town for a workshop today, and I parked under a tree for shade.  Figured it wouldn't be the end of the world to walk further.  But when I walked out at lunch time, the entire lot was barricaded and there were signs about a car show (just my car by the looks of it)!  I hope I'm not on the security cameras since I moved some of the barricades to escape!

Sorry I haven't been posting lately.  The new reading adoption at work is sucking up all my time.  I can't believe the amount of stuff that has to be made by hand ahead of time!  It'll be nice to have a year of this under my belt so it won't be so time consuming next year.

Nice here in Oregon, mid-70's, but it's very dry and dusty.  Could use some rain.  I'm tired of watering the roses etc. about now.  Rain would be OK with me!

Just had to look up when daylight savings time ends this year, and I was surprised it wasn't until Nov. 4.  I guess I forgot how late in the year they've made it go on.

Good evening everyone....Rose hope you feel better  from the flu shot soon....Yeah been pretty busy ...
Going to see Alex Cross with Tyler Perry tonight at 935...........

Hope you get to feeling better Rose!

Post by: Lynn1 on October 18, 2012, 10:37:05 pm
I hope you folks with the flu shot feel better soon!  I can relate.  I had mine at the beginning of October, and it made me feel exhausted for a couple of days afterwards. 

I hope you found the stainless steel burner covers you wanted, Debbie!

Post by: Rose on October 21, 2012, 02:50:23 pm
I only felt "off" from the flu shot that first day.  Mr. Rose and I have been far healthier since getting flu shots.  Mr. Rose, in particular, used to be down in bed as much as 10 days with the flu and so sick.  Now he is healthy all winter.

So I've been playing with paint in my bathroom to see if I need to prime it first or not.  Good news is I don't think I have to prime it.  Bad news is, now I have to paint!   :D

This is a busy week picking off doctor appointments, got a perm, and the next two days a contractor will be here to update a bathroom.  I have multiple things to do before he comes, but here I am on the computer.  I think I have run out of gas!  I am about to break out the chocolate, turn on the Christmas music, and make myself do some work!

Irritating morning here.  The local utility company is changing out water meters in our area.  They changed ours early this AM, and the stupid guy never turned the water back on.  I had to chase a different truck down the road and ask him what was going on, and I'm still not feeling so cheerful.  It was cold out there, and I had no way to get cleaned up etc.

Good Monday Morning not alot on the agenda today have some laundry to do and change bed linens. Other than that watch my soaps...ynr, bnb!
Rose I don' t know if it was a repeat or not but I caught the last few mins of the civil war game between Oregon and Oregon State...Oregon looks pretty good I think they are like 12-2.
I always pull for Oregon ;)

Post by: Rose on January 07, 2013, 03:04:45 pm
Yes, that was a repeat of the big rivalry game.  Both teams had a great season!  Now Chip Kelly is coming back to coach Oregon again in this next year, and most of the team is returning!  They should have a great 2013 season!   :)

Once again I stood in line at the post office for a half hour.  This time I think it was the post office employees problem.  The guy at the counter said he was the only one there, walked up to the window to buy stamps, and they had lost the keys to where the stamps were locked up.  He finally suggested the woman go look in the bathroom, and sure enough, she came back with them.  I am so glad I'm done with the post office for a while!

Happy Saturday to you, too!  I'll be curious to see if I can move without being in pain tomorrow.  I had the "bright" idea of jogging a middle school's track this morning, and threw in 2 sets of stairs after each lap for an hour straight.  I think I'll be regretting it in the morning!

I did a 5k earlier today, and it was the strangest race I've participated in so far.  The course was advertised as flat and scenic, yet it had the steepest hills ever!  Slowed me way down.  And here's the strangest part:  there were high school kids jumping out in front of the runners near the last straight stretch, trying to sell us Krispy Kreme donuts.  I would've been glad to buy one after the fact, but not in the middle of a race!  LOL!

It looks like the rain will be here soon....Got to go to Frankfort Ky tomorrow to a wedding it was suppose to be outside but it might have to be pushed inside I hope  the rain holds off until after the wedding....

I hope the wedding you're going to can be outdoors as planned, Debbie!  It'll be nice if they have a backup plan though, huh? 

I had debated about signing up for a 5k that's for Oregon Duck fans tomorrow... it was scheduled for tomorrow since the football team has a bye.  It's one of those color runs, and I don't like getting stuff on my glasses, so I passed up on it.  But now I'm extra glad I passed since it'll be pouring down rain tomorrow.

What a strange (and sad) story on the news tonight.  The anchor said this family in Alabama had a bad situation go from bad to worse... they discovered their trees were TP'd overnight, which is a mess to clean up.  So they decided to burn the toilet paper out of the trees.  The next thing you know, the fire grew out of control, spread to the yard, and spread to the house.... and the house burned to the ground. I've never heard of anyone trying to burn toilet paper out of their trees before.

About +60 here and partly cloudy.  Been doing yard work this afternoon.  Most of my yard survived the ice storm a couple weeks ago with the possible exception of a few roses.  Cut them way back and will wait a couple weeks for signs of new growth.  So glad to have spring in the air!!!

Post by: Lynn1 on March 03, 2015, 08:37:49 pm
Hope you feel better soon, Rose!  I haven't watched Y&R yet... had an adventure with my car that took up a good chunk of my afternoon.  My check engine light came on and stayed on while I was running errands. I brought the car in for repairs and had a rental lined up. While I was wondering how I was going to pay for all this, a young guy opened the hood and asked me, "Did you know about this rag in your engine?" (No! The last person to open the hood was the oil change place in late November/early December.) I cracked a joke about the rag causing the check engine light to stay on, and he said I might be on to something. Sure enough, the light no longer stays on! Fixed for free! Hooray!  And it's a good thing, too, cuz they wouldn't have gotten to my car until Thursday at the earliest.

Ugh I literally cant stand painting.....I have mowed 2 yards today and a few more things...Jerry's tractor messed up and we had to take the part to a shop to get it fixed...Its planting season and he said today he might not worry with raising corn and just raise soybeans...Corn really needs to be planted by May 10th...So we shall see.. I know he wants to and likes to fool with the grain farming its just more a less a hobby...It does bring us in a few thousand dollars on a good year maybe 8 to 9 thousand.....We also mow 23 yards .......We like doing it because we can do it together....We have Bible Study at 630 tonight...

Speaking of air, I've got the a/c guy in my apt. for the next couple of hours to replace the drain pan.  I originally wrote permission for the landlord to let him in and stay to supervise him since I'm supposed to be at my old school to pack up stuff to take to my new school.  But the repair guy said it'll take a couple of hours, and the landlord can't stick around that long... so I've rescheduled the packing.  At least the a/c will be fixed!  (After we've already had 100 degree temps.  LOL!)

I overheard some kids arguing about the name "Adam" earlier this week.  One of them was talking about Adam Sandler, and another one interrupted to say, "That's NOT Adam.  The one and only Adam is Adam Levine."  I couldn't resist jumping in and saying, "That's NOT Adam.  The one and only Adam is Adam Newman."  The stunned silence was pretty funny.  ;D  So I clarified, "Adam Newman from The Young and the Restless.  And by the way, you just learned that there's more than one guy on the planet named Adam.  Carry on."

Hi everyone,  Just a note to say I'm sorry to be so slow on the Ms. May write-up.  Mr. Rose was in the hospital for 11 days, so I haven't watched Y&R most of June.  Just getting back to it now.  Mr. Rose is getting a little better each day, so in a few weeks I will be catching up on Y&R and The Colonnade Calendar!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on June 29, 2016, 10:03:21 am
Family comes first, so no worries on The Colonnade Calendar.  I'm glad he's out of the hospital!

Hoping to catch up on the show soon!  I was out of town the last several days.

It was +91 here yesterday.  Way too hot for autumn. Am I the only one looking for autumn weather???  :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on September 27, 2016, 11:06:15 pm
Autumn weather would be great!  It's making me crabby having it be in the upper 90s, no a/c at the school, and no access to water at my part of the school due to the lead-affected fixtures that the district is taking forever to get fixed.

It's been feeling like fall the last few days..
 It's rained hard the last couple hours...This week has worn me out we have had lots of running to do...We traded trucks and had other things to do...
Got to go to the funeral home tomorrow night...A friend of ours passed with cancer
He really battled he had been sick for 4 or 5 yrs
But really bad the last few months...
I have a scratchy throat feeling under the weather..
Lying in bed watching tv...Hawaii five O and Blue Bloods comes on in a bit
Good night

Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of the UCC shooting.  It was amazing to see thousands of people from the community unite as one in the Umpqua Strong 9k and 5k.  There was a banner at each marker in honor of each victim.  Quinn was in my 1st grade reading group years ago.

Hi Deb,  Thanks for checking in!  Still watching Y&R, still watching the Oregon Ducks, still waiting for spring!  :)

Post by: Lynn1 on March 09, 2017, 10:51:47 pm
Hopefully I can catch up on the show tomorrow.  I've had parent conferences from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. for the past two days, so I'm a little behind on Y&R.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on March 12, 2017, 06:42:17 pm
I haven't had time to do the write-ups for character of the month.  It's supposed to rain a few days this week, so maybe I'll get to them.  Have been doing yard work today as it was sunny and 65 degrees!


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on May 16, 2017, 09:22:21 pm
I've been trying to post in off-topic tonight, and it keeps saying "fatal error."  :(  I've been out of town more than usual the last month, so I'm hoping to catch up on character of the month soon.  I'm really interested to see what happens with Dina Mergeron!

I just put up the Ms. or Mr. April vote.  Sure hope some of you members vote as that was a great storyline when the truth came out about Chloe!  I will put the Ms. or Mr. May vote up next week!

I probably won't get to post until late in the day on Wednesday.  I have an eye exam tomorrow, and it usually takes me most of the day to be able to read, use the computer, do close-up work, etc. after that.

I am so tired of the news interruptions of Y&R.  Didn't get to see it again today.  :(


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on August 10, 2017, 09:53:23 pm
And now to catch up on the show.  I was out of town most of the day for a math conference.  It was a little annoying on the drive back because several cars were putzing along in the left lane who had no business being in the left lane.  The worst was when I got to an uphill part that's now 3 lanes, and it's clearly marked for semi trucks to stay to the right, and one of them was blocking traffic by staying in the left lane.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Rose on September 18, 2017, 02:11:02 pm
It turned to fall here yesterday.  What a relief!  Sure hope we get enough rain to dampen all the forest fires.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on September 26, 2017, 10:42:17 pm
I'll have to catch up on the show another time.  I spent forever at the doctor and the pharmacy after work tonight, and I don't want to miss the season premiere of "This Is Us."  So Y&R will have to wait for another day.

Hi everyone I haven't been here for awhile
Just wanted to pop in to say hello
Soap glad you're out of the hospital...
It's been a rough week our youngest daughter Adara was pregnant with her second child.
Her and Josh went to the doctor on Monday excited to hear heartbeat of their baby only to have heartbreak when the doctor said there is no heartbeat
She was 10 weeks along.. On Wednesday she had a d & c done ..
We stayed with them for 2 days even though we couldn't do anything but we were there for support.
She and Josh went back to work today and she is doing ok physically and seems to be mentally as well..They have great friends and have great faith and it will get them through. They also have their sweet Elodie she is 3 going on 10 lol.. You know how kids are nowadays they seem to come out of the womb knowing everything..
I just am blessed with the most wonderful friends and all that has told me their praying
...


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: Lynn1 on February 16, 2018, 10:35:31 pm
I'm so sorry to hear about that, Debbie.  Earlier this week I was wondering if she still teaches and if she might be having more kids.  Kind of odd to wonder that when we haven't met or anything... but your family was on my mind for some reason.  You're all in my thoughts and prayers.


Title: Re: Shootin' The Breeze Thread
Post by: DebbieMartin48 on February 17, 2018, 10:53:41 am
Thanks Lynn yes she teaches 5 th grade in Lexington Kentucky
Yes they were so excited over having their second child
It was planned for sure it was devasting for them and I am not dealing with it very well
But with prayer it will get better
The most hurtful thing to me is no one from church other than our pastor has reached out to me
.. We are a close group at church and it's very hurtful I just can't help it
With Gods help it will be better
Please keep us all in your prayers

I am so sorry to hear this, Debbie. I'm glad you and your husband could be with your daughter and son-in-law.  I'm sure your loving presence meant the world to them. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.  Love, Rose

Here's a summary (http://www.young-restless.com/2018/thursday-february-22nd) of the episode, Rose.  I saw your post and planned on watching Y&R on the POP channel... except I'm so tired that I fell asleep towards the end and missed the good stuff.  So I needed the summary, too!

I'll pretty much be missing in action around here tomorrow and Thursday.  I have a 12-1/2 hour work day tomorrow and a 12-hour work day on Thursday.  By the time I commute home and watch the show, I'll be ready to crash.

I was up at the school this morning to get reading groups set up for the week, and spotted a deer outside my window.  Actually, it turned out to be a group of three deer... but they ran off by the time I got my phone back out.

I think they live near the school since we're in a hilly area and have a river nearby.  They apparently came on campus to eat out of the 3rd grade planters.
