Morning friends,

In the thick of the storm here in MD should be gone later this evening. I took the day off to be alert to anything that might need my attention here at home - just to be safe, can't afford to have water come in the house while I'm not home. So far so good thank God for the sump pump !!!!! The winds are fierce and the rain is none stop glad I stayed home. Of course so is Dusky. Bro and SIL upstairs are home and will alert me if it looks like I should move my car to higher grounds, again so far so good.

I hope you all are safe in your area from other elements about. Have the best day possible will try to catch up again later.

Hey PLOF,

How are you holding up, Cat? Take are and I hope things settle down and you and Maureen can get back to the serene Island life soon.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We played pickleball all weekend and yesterday was with a lot more people coming and going. We wear masks but take them off to play. It's not very secure though and I'll try to be better next Sunday.

Getting tested today.

Thinking of you all. emoticon

Good top of the day to my friends hope your week is off to a good start.

What an adorable pic Carol ! I hope the cough was caught in time to prevent any spread if not I'm sure you will do whatever needs to be done to contain it. I can imagine it may be difficult. Def sounds like your weekend was a busy one. Hope all goes well at work for you this week.

I did not meet up with Karen yesterday so I enjoyed the day at home with Dusky and piddling around the house. I think I am taking tomorrow off (if I can get someone to work for me) as I have some concerns about this hurricane coming up the coast and the possibility of flooding while I'm at work. I fear water living in the basement so I'd rather be here if it happens. Sounds like it is a doozie !

Time to get Dusky up and get the day moving along, so sending you all much love and blessings for a good safe and healthy day and week ahead.

A lap full of puppies!

Good evening..

Wow what a weekend. I took Friday off and then had a busy weekend. Today was totally crazy.

We had to take Micky to the emergency vet. He has kennel cough which is highly contagious. He just started coughing during the night. The puppy and Murphy have been exposed and we have to watch them closely. The only place we figure he could have gotten it was at the groomers a week ago. And we are supposed to keep him isolated for 2 weeks. Not sure how we can do that...but we will figure it out.

Anyway ...been a bit hectic here. Have a great week all...be safe

Sunday fun day, maybe ? Good morning friends,

Carol - wow sounds very disturbing about your workplace that no one in authority is following up with in house staff. Shameful !! So good that your home is a peaceful safe and happy place to come home to. Yep sounds like Princess has added just what the dr ordered !!! Enjoy each day as it comes your way.

I too did not make it in yesterday as I had a very busy in the house morning being productive before Linda came over. We went to Target and we were both very leery when we got to the parking lot and saw the amount of people coming and going but we gave it a try and made every effort to get in and get out safely., staying mindful of distance and of course snug masks !!! Then we went to lunch and we were the only people in the inside eating area but I told Linda I will not eat indoors at a restaurant again until things are more safe. I am concerned about indoor ventilations. We came back to my house for a while then she went home @ 6:30ish.
Today I am contemplating spending time with Karen, just not sure about it yet. If so will be for lunch - and it WILL be outdoors !!! weather permitting or take out and back to my house or hers.
That's my plan and I'm sticking too it !!

Hope you all enjoy this Sunday with those you love safely.

Good morning....

Sorry i did not get in yesterday. I took the day off to get some things done! I'm sitting here now with a lap full of puppy! She's been a pure delight so far! I think we needed this....already has a special place in our hearts. No one can replace Molly but she has filled a big void for sure.

Cat...thinking about Monica, Maureen, and you. Its difficult to have to step in when these things happen in our lives. Doubly difficult during the pandemic for sure. Sending good thoughts your way!

What has our work done for our safety when our co-worker tested positive???Nothing as far as i can tell. The gal that works directly across from her, less than 6 feet, is still there. No tests as far as i can tell. We will probably have a cluster.

Great weather here, unseasonably cool and periodic rain. Yesterdays high was 80 i believe. I love it!

Not much else happening! Have a great weekend all...be safe!

Late night post for me before bedtime.

Cat so sorry to hear about Monica, will keep her in prayer as well as you and Maureen for strength to deal with it all. It must be very difficult caring and loving a person with such problems be it mental of physical it can't be easy that's for sure. Bless you both, be safe. Keep us posted when you can. I didn't realize Monica had birds too, what kind?

Yes Mo like Cat said someone out there is looking for just this place so hang in there for that right person (s) to come along. In the meantime enjoy it while you still have it. Thanks for the grade clarification now I understand and can even picture it in my mind. Sure hope you were able to have a nice relaxing day.

Big storm heading up the Atlantic coast sure hope it heads out toward the ocean and doesn't give us any worry. Looks like a rainy weekend I think Linda will come over and we will just watch movies and order out for dinner. She has not been out of the house since last weekend. I at least go to work each day. Speaking of which it was a very busy day again and still no visitors !!!

Ok sweet dreams to all.

Mo, you love the place so someone else will too!

9-1-1 situation here. Monica called an ambulance and is back in the hospital. We have to go rescue pets and pay her rent. Hate to do it but we found a shelter that will take the dogs up to 2 weeks. It's just too sketchy wondering if they will transmit the disease. They said birds do very poorly in shelters because of the stress so we will bring them home to the garage/back yard. The fish may have to be sacrificed (big tank). I'm waiting for Maureen to get back, she went to town to see if she could find some kind of hazmat suit for going into the apartment. What a mess. It's going to be a long day. Brought some healthy snacks and water. Maureen is towing the camping toilet in the trailer. Wish us luck.

Hey DG,

Grade has to do with the slope of the land. In our case, the water is more of a view because of the steepness to the river. There is a set of steep steps, but they need some repair.

I am so tired yet today. It will be a day of rest, and driving back to Stanley.

TGIF friends, I'm truly ready for this work week to be over !!!

It was a very busy day yesterday, good busy and it flew by and I enjoyed it - well for the most part as it had it's not so pleasant moments but that is always the case. Bro Brian went home as well, so another plus to the day !!
Need to stop at the store on the way home tonight for milk and bananas and cucumbers and then home to get the weekend started. It's going to be a rainy one but no matter we do need it and just another reason to stay indoors safely from others. Will see how it goes.

Mo a quick question, what's the deal with the water not sure I understand about the "grade". Is it something that can be changed to suit the buyer or what? Best of luck you know if it is meant to be it will happen when it's the right time. Hang in there hon and hope you have a more relaxing day today.

Cat, I couldn't agree with you more on the fed forces coming into cities, it's just wrong and causing more violence in my view. I love scallops and have some frozen in my freezer as well, so thanks for the reminder they will be part of my weekend meal !!! Enjoy your's as well, you are always whipping up something yummy !!

Ok ladies gotta get moving give Dusky some time and me some breakfast before heading out. Wishing you all a good healthy and safe day. Remember the W.W.W.s

Hey there PLOFERS!

I read your post, but Im way too tired to comment. Sorry.

I was so busy that I forgot to eat all day. I would get totally exhausted and would need a break, which I used to hydrate. Then I would get back to it.

I cant even remember if I told you that on Monday, Betsy and I decided to put the house in winter back up for sale. We want to take advantage of the sellers market. The house has already had over 500 views and 21 saves in one day.

I couldnt get to sleep until 4 AM last night, and I got up at 10 AM. I started by cleaning the upstairs, and partway through I got a message that there would be a showing tonight. I kicked it into high gear. I got the house cleaned, the deck cleaned, the garage cleaned, and the trailer loaded with some things to take home. The place looks great!

Unfortunately, the guy that came to see the house tonight did not like the grade to the water. That is probably peoples biggest complaint. Its kind of a shame because at least in my eyes so many other things outweigh the access to the water.

I will do some more packing in the morning, and if I dont get notice of a showing I will head home with the trailer.

All for now my friends,
Take care,
MO

Hello dear PLOF!

Arghhh, so sorry to hear about your work mate testing positive Carol. Is management taking steps to protect the rest of you? Testing, quarantine?

Thanks for the heads up on the podcast, Ill be listening to that along with the fiery speech Barack gave at John Lewis funeral today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAnaFwehJW
4

We are hoping that the news about federal tactical teams leaving Portland, OR is really happening and that will be the trend elsewhere. Them coming into cities without agreement from mayors was really scary.

DG, would love to see you under your lovely sunbrella that thought made me smile!

Last weekend when I was in Seattle I stopped to get some fresh frozen scallops going to use some of those in a fajita for dinner. Its a beautiful evening for a walk, Juneau got a bath this afternoon and wants to go show off her lustrous locks lol!

Good morning lovely ladies,

Carol do yourself a favor and take your temp each day, be mindful of small changes you may see for 2 weeks and continue to quarantine as you have been. @ 2 weeks seems to be the time frame for symptoms to show up. OR you may just want to get test if you are feeling anxious about the possibility. Keep us posted hon.

Cat good to hear some positive news about Monica hope she can find that place to keep her grounded soon. Bless your Maureen. Try not to be too concerned about the scale just be as mindful as you can to eat healthy and just walk when you have the energy to do so.

I will go in a bit early to talk to the head nurse about Brian's condition and hope to get some clarity about it. That's about all I can do and no even tho I work there I would still be a visitor and would not be allow just the same. Thankfully Brian understands that much !!

temps have still been high here tho humidity was lower but that all changes today they say. I use a lovely SUNbrella to walk to the building and that helps a lot.

Well time is clicking away so I better get a move on friends. Sending you all much love and support to have a good healthy and safe Thursday.

Good morning....

Thinking about Brian and Monica and hope everything goes well for both of them. It's tough and nerve wracking being sick or being in the hospital at this time! Keep us updated!

Wow...lots going on! Talk about nerve wracking...we found out yesterday that a person IN OUR DEPARTMENT. tested positive for covid!! Now that is scary....only about 40 in my dept currently. I'm not around her but i'm around people who are around her. Too close for comfort!!

The Michelle Obama podcast is great. It came out yesterday on Spotify. Omg...i miss those two. It is so apparent that the griffters currently in the whitehouse are so ignorant and disgusting compared to the Obamas!! Ugh...we gotta vote those thugs destroying our country out! Listen to the podcast....its a breath of fresh air! and will make you sad that they are no longer guiding us!

I mowed the lawn myself last night. There was a small window between the rain and the lawn was pretty dry. Good thing i did it...it stormed overnight!!

Have a great day all....be safe!!

Poor Brian DG. I would want to get more specific info too and I sure don't blame you for not wanting to go in to visit him. Will they even let you? I feel your rant - we will never be able to understand the thinking of these ridiculous people. And there is no way I would go eat inside a restaurant, picking up to go is nerve wracking enough.

I wish we could just do away with all the labels -we are so simplistic here that the labels become clouded with all kinds of negativity. I do miss being surrounded by liberals but being new-ish to this location I really don't have a good feel for the demographics. Our Island county has a dem state representative so that says something.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers for Monica. M talked to her today, she is OK in the fact that she doesn't need hospitalization (yet?). She's definitely getting weaker and losing patience with her dogs needing attention. It's hard for M not to spring into superwoman gear but she realizes that we can't put her health in jeopardy. Monica has a lifelong history of abuse towards Maureen so I feel a great need to protect her from both the mental and physical stress and most of all the virus.

The scale was up this morning more than I expected and I know I haven't been moving enough this week partly because of the heat but mostly just lack of consistence. After dinner Juneau and I have a date to walk further than usual!

Evening friends,

Brian is still in the hospital with no diagnosis as of yet. The day doc seems to think it may be kidney related and he was dehydrated causing the pass out ???? Now he's talking some in pt physical therapy I'm at a loss with not speaking to the dr myself. Brian is one to tell you what he thinks you want to hear not what's really going on. It's hard making sense of things with him most times and that's on a good day !!!! I think tomorrow I will talk to the charge nurse for a true account of the details so I can share them with my family.
Other than that it was another kinda busy day and nothing to complain about. Just glad to be home now.

Gee Cheryl I am sorry you are having pickleball pain, hope that stretching helps and probably more regular PB as well ???? I be a nice soaking bath would help as well. WOW by the description of that definition a full blood liberal must be hard to find these days !!! BTW, how is your Mom doing these days???

Our governor has decided to hold in stage 2 for now as our case numbers are on a slight increase. I wish he would just allow outdoor dining and curbside pick up from restaurants and NO INDOOR eating. It is mandatory to wear masks in all public spaces and the new motto here is "No shirt, no shoes, no mask, NO SERVICE !!! People just can't seem to think or care about how their actions effect other people including their own families. So selfish. The more people that do what needs to be done (the 3 Ws) the sooner we will defeat this pandemic. What part of that is hard to understand ???

Ok that's my evening rant so will say goodnight and I'll go watch something to make me laugh before bedtime.

Good morning PLOF-

Oh, am so sore and stiff from pickleball. Getting out of the car is such a chore! I've got to get better at stretching.

Yeah...liberal is such a bad word:

liberal ADJECTIVE

willing to respect or accept behavior or opinions different from one's own; open to new ideas.
"they have more liberal views toward marriage and divorce than some people"
synonyms: tolerant unprejudiced unbigoted broad-minded open-minded enlightened forbearing permissive free free and easy easygoing laissez-faire libertarian latitudinarian unbiased impartial nonpartisan indulgent lenient lax soft

And, Carol, nothing like a cute puppy for distraction and it definitely sounds like you need it in your neck of the world. Luckily, I'm surrounded by liberals.

DG, I hope your brother gets better and has a full recovery. Will be keeping him in my thoughts and prayers.

Cat, you and Maureen and her sister remain in my thoughts and prayers too. Good thing you did the wellness check.

Hey, Mo, hope you are taking the day off and doing fun stuff like playing with the pups.

Take care PLOF emoticon

Welcome to Hump Day friends,

I've read everything and soooo enjoyed it all. I am sorry I do not have time to comment (again) this morning as I need to get an early start into work. My bro Brian was admitted yesterday as he passed out in his apartment. I do not know the details of that part as of yet but I spoke to the Dr treating him in the ER and they were going to admit him for stroke observation but he said things looked good. I want to get to work early enough to talk to Brian but will not go to see him. I do not venture off the main floor that I work, just not comfortable anywhere else at this time. I also ask for your healing thoughts and prayers for him. I will update as soon as I can.

Thanks for the 3rd "W" reminder so lets all keep them in mind and do them

Wear your mask, Wash your hands and Watch your distance from others.

Good morning....

Sorry i've been MIA but having a new baby family. Wow...its been awhile. Micky was our last puppy! He's nine so its been a minute.

Cheryl...YES! I too pretty much like all foods except liver and onions. Thank goodness my Mom hated it too...we never had to eat it at home.

The political ads here are ridiculous. The vacant repub senate seat is up for grabs and wow are they calling each other vicious names. They do stand together against the "liberal mob " who is destroying this country! LOL. Idiots...no wonder this country is in dire straights.

Gotta go...baby needs to be corralled! (sp)

Third W Wash your hands! Not that any of us could forget any of those.

Thank you all for your comments about Mrs. Obama. I miss her so much. Should I tell you we found her head under the canoe today. Oops, guess I did. Ahh the country life.

Cheryl you cracked me up! Fit and ageless, fit is attainable, not sure about the ageless part lol! Mo, beautiful photos, I love how green it all is and I would def think you burn a bunch of calories doing it by hand. Just dont reward yourself with a big bowl of ice cream afterwards! And Im assuming those are big rocks and not polar bears at the end of the yard lol?

Its definitely a sellers market here people are leaving Seattle for many reasons and housing prices are much lower in our little county. so hope you have success quickly!

I looked up some old notes I had from my trainer and he said at least 6 weeks to establish a habit. He probably knew I was an easy backslider.

Carol, Im laughing!! Another disappointment for the kiddies for sure poor things. Ive never had liver and onions and Im proud of it.

Update on Monica Maureen was so worried this morning she called 9-1-1 for a wellness check. Monica hadnt responded to any calls or texts for over 24 hours and she was very sick on Sunday. The sheriff found her getting out of her car in the parking lot which breaks her quarantine. I have very strong feelings about the situation on so many levels so I better stop here.

Day 2 staff meditation yesterday I had 20 minutes on my own and today did a half an hour guided meditation at lunchtime. Also got out the long neglected nutribullet lunch was an icy nonfat greek yogurt, blueberry, cucumber, and lime smoothie. Tasty and refreshing!

I was very sad to hear about Mrs. Obama. And glad that Joe is happy. Wow, Cat, you have so much on your plate right now. Very concerned for Maureen's sister and I know you'll keep us posted. Sending healing thoughts her way.

Mo, you didn't do that with the push mower, did you? What a gorgeous yard. Good thing you're retired! I am watching temperatures in Las Vegas, Palm Springs and AZ. I just don't know what will happen in 1, 2-5 years from now re retirement and won't be surprised if we're right where we are today. Albeit a tad bit longer in the tooth. (Hopefully!)

Carol, it is so funny that you posted that picture. Whenever talking about food likes/dislikes, my go-to phrase is "I like everything, except liver and onions."

Got a call from one of my bosses (the big one, not the biggest but our group's chair). She was very nice and, although we email, it was nice to talk on the phone. I made a joke about Harvard grads (she is) figuring this coronavirus out. Her gf is a doctor so they have many friends who are scientists so they have their fingers on the pulse of what's going on.

Gotta snap out of it and figure out what I want in life. Playing pickleball as a plump middle-age woman having fun or losing 10-20 pounds and playing pickleball as a fit and ageless woman looking and feeling healthy. I flip/flop day to day. emoticon

Fit and ageless! I pick fit and ageless. emoticon emoticon

Good Tuesday morning friends,

I'm gonna try a quick catch up......short but sweet.

Carol love love love that pic, thanks it gave me a good morning chuckle.

Mo, OMG you really did get the work out girl, def burned some good calories. Keep up the good work.

Cat thanks for sharing the update on Joe glad to know he is happy there and not living in fear. If I remember correctly changing habits takes at least 60 full days. Good to know the rest of the chicks should be safer now with the upgraded pen. And will surely keep M's sister in healing prayer.

Cheryl hope you're doing well and staying safe hon.

Another heat advisory and storms expected later today. It's a rough walk from the garage to the building in this heat but I take my time and a few breaks along the way.

Take care dear friends, Wear your mask, Watch your distances, and I can't remember the other "W".

Hey there PLOFERS!

I discovered that if I eat properly and am active that the scale moves in the correct direction! Now if only I could do that for the TWENTY- ONE days it takes to form a habit.

Spent a lot of time hand cutting the front lawn on Saturday, and needed to rest on Sunday. Today, I hand cut the girls play yard.

Also, Today......a bit out of the blue.......we decided to put Winter back on the market. We want to take advantage of it being a sellers market. Stanley checks more boxes as far as what we must have until we move - out of state. We want to have ONE place, so it will be easier to make the move if the right place comes along.

I dont think that I ever really said much about our trip to Asheville. The bottom line was that it simply didnt feel right.

We have a number of family and friends in the Charlottesville, VA area, and we are strongly leaning to that area.

Here are a couple pics of my exercise results.

Princess sounds like a little darling! Such a good puppy and you are keeping her busy and out of trouble. Keep the photos coming! How much does she weigh and how big do you think she will get? Maureen says ahhhh puppy breath! Are you working full time now?

We are still devastated about Mrs. Obama. I keep seeing her poor body and the evidence of how hard she fought (feathers everywhere). She was only 1.5 years old with so many good years in front of her, and her personality very affectionate and smart. She definitely had the perfect life for a chicken so Im comforting myself with that. Weve fortified the run so hopefully we can discourage the predator once and for all. Of course they are still in danger during the day while free ranging the yard.

Had a long talk with Joe this weekend he lives in Chengdu where the American embassy was closed in retaliation for Houston. He has experienced racial profiling by other citizens since he lived there but its very seldom. He said the worst was an old grandma who shouted White Devil at him! The big comfort there is that no deranged citizen is going to pull a gun on him citizens cant carry. The police did come to his door on Friday asking him to sign a paper that he lives there permanently as a student the past 5 years. Im sure they are looking for spies. They keep track of everyone. I asked what would happen if he needed to come back here and he said emphatically that he would much rather be there than here. I think people around the world are marveling at what a wreck we are right now. Anyway, hes not letting it get him down and he and the gf are currently on vacay right now at a beautiful mountain retreat with hot springs, an hours ride on the bullet train from home. They have controlled the virus there and are moving about as usual although with caution and always a mask.

Oh, and Maureens sister has tested positive. She actually lives not too far north of Cheryl. In hospital over night and then they released her to shelter at home. She has multiple health issues but is one tough cookie. We are checking in several times per day and will be in contact with her doctor. If she has to go back to the hospital we will have to go get her dogs, possibly fish and birds. Not liking all of that but what can you do.

This weeks work challenge is meditation. I did fairly well with the last 2 weeks (steps and hydration), it always helps to recommit oneself consciously to continue good habits. Anyone know what they say regarding how many days until a habit is formed?

Started back to 4 10-hour days today will be so great to be free for 3 days again. Ive missed it and work is so much less crazy now so I took the opportunity. I love how flexible our administrator is although I do miss Lawrence!

Have a good evening all and stay safe! Like DG said we really can only control ourselves.

Good Monday friends,

Well here we go again a new week to watch covid #s soar, it's scarier than ever, when will people wake up and do the right thing ???? All we can do is take care of our loved ones, ourselves and be smart when we are out and about. I am blessed to know that all my PLOF friends are doing just that and I thank each of you for doing your part to stop the spread.

I was surprised to see a drop in my weight this Sunday, hard to believe as just the day before the scale showed I was still heading in the wrong direction. Of course I splurged last night with a little one serving cup of Edy's slow churn vanilla, with rainbow sprinkles yum !!

Ok better get this day moving along, so send you all good vibes for a good healthy start to the week ahead.

Good morning ladies...

Cat ...so sorry about Mrs.Obama. It's difficult i know!! We become attached for sure.

Princess is exceeding all my expectations so far. After the first night she has slept through the night in her kennel next to my bed. As long as she knows i'm close when we first retire she does not whimper or whine at all. When i get up for the bathroom during the night, i go out with her so she can potty. Its working well.

When i leave the house like this morning for my walk i put her in her soft travel kennel and place her in bed with Linda. She stays there quietly till i get her.

The rest of the time we play and run in the back yard and chase the cat. Lucky actually really likes lm playing with her...she chases him! When he gets tired of it he gets out of her reach!

Anyway...princess has been a lot of fun so far and she has brought a lot of new joy and liveliness to the household.

Have a great day all!!

Good Sunday weigh in day lovely friends,

OH Cat I am soooo sorry to hear about Mrs Obama what a loss I'm sure. Hopefully that cat will not show up again but if possible is there any thing you can do to scare it off? So sad to lose a pet.

Cheryl so good to hear from you hon, good to know you are keeping yourself busy and active. We all pray that people in this country will do the right thing to help control this virus NOW !!! If that happens I'm sure you will be able to make your trip, keep the faith hon.

I'm sorry I got side tracked yesterday and forgot to pop in to post. I had a nice day yesterday with run to the grocery store to stock up on my LC frozen dinners and a few other "extras" then the liquor store for 3 bottles of wine ( a Rose' ) stepping out of the box for a change. I also made a cold pasta chicken and asparagus salad using a lemon and basil vinaigrette. It was so delicious I will surely make again. It will be good to take for lunch this week. Chatted on the phone a bit and relaxed with some evening wine. That was my day.
Today I have laundry to finish and need to run to Big Lots for more seed, those birds and squirrels are piggies !!! But I love having them here for Dusky and I to enjoy their chatter. Temps here are still hot and humid and staying indoors in a better option indeed.
My family upstairs are home from their NC trip and having a birthday party at my nephew's inlaws home with a pool today but I will not be attending for safety.

Well time to do the weigh in chart, mine was not so good to see emoticon

Have a pleasant and safe Sunday ladies.

Hello all.

Very sad news. I found our beautiful iridescent hen Mrs. Obama dead in the run today. It was an attack. I won't share the details but we believe the culprit is a cat. I'd like to believe that she was defending the others which was her character. R.I.P. sweet lady! We will miss you and your beautiful brown eggs. So sad...

Thank you PLOF for putting smiles on my face!

Princess is adorable for sure. How fun it must be with her in the family! And, Cat, I would bet Juneau and Princess would be fabulous friends. Is Juneau still getting double the fun with walks with you and Maureen?

Not doing much: working and pickleball and the store. Made Yosemite plans for next April and, now, I'm worried that might be too soon. Ugh....

Have a great weekend everyone. It's forecasted summer here in the PNW with sunny and 80+ degree weather. Hope it lasts through Indian Summer emoticon

Hey there PLOFERS!

TGIF - I may be retired, but with Bets still working the day of the week matters more than it will in 398 days!

Yard work on the agenda today.

One of our governors aids, a 25 yoa young man, lost his life in a tubing accident on a river. So sad. He was one of the five people the governor decided to spend his time with during the pandemic.

The world is crazy right now in so many ways.

Carol - I wanted to mention that you sure have some HOT weather.

All for right now,
MO

Happy finally Friday friends,

Yep we are all on board too Carol Princess is such a cutie and of course she is a good fit for your household. It will be fun hearing about her growth with you. Of course we will expect pics too !!

Mo I was bummed about sorta the same thing when I was not able to log into SP due to PC problems a good while back when I had logged in for over 1000 days; but I got over it, LOL !!!

A very busy day at work yesterday and I hope today goes by quickly today so I can get over this week. I've been frustrated with new procedures and I don't like it at all. There's more than enough to changes going on these days all around us and work should be more considerate than to add more right now, some things can wait. Give us all a break I say !!!! Oh well I'm not gonna make a difference that's for sure. TGIF

OK time to move the day along so I can be back home soon.

Happy Friday ladies. Stay safe, be mindful and enjoy what you can. Sending hugs to all.

Good morning....

Cat...i just decided i would jump on board and go with Linda on this. I'm glad we did. Right now we are working on crate training. She slept all night in her crate quietly as long as i was within sight. I slept on a foam mattress right next to her and I only got up once with her. I have nights and Linda has days. She will learn the crate is a safe place and not a punishment!

Poor Linda though. Princess is up with me now and full of energy. LOL. She is not a rescue though but we bought her from a reputable person. All the rescues were big dogs or boys. We wanted a girl and smaller. We fell in love with her immediately and can already tell shes a good fit for us

Have a great day all...be healthy!

Hey there PLOFERS!

OMG OMG OMG Carol!!! Precious Princess! Great choice! Fantastic addition to your loving family.

Way to wipe my being bummed away this morning. I WAS bummed that I forgot to sign in to an app that I have played for around 280 straight days. But Princess has put that in the past.

Happy THANKFUL Thursday friends, soooo much to be thankful for; these days especially !!!

WOW sorry I missed posting yesterday but really enjoyed reading everything this morning. So much going on with everyone and OMG -Carol Princess is ADOREABLE !!! I love my bro and SIL little dachshund LOLA and I had a little yorkie many years ago so I think the mix sounds and looks precious !!! I have no doubt how luck she is and will become a big part of your family.

MO we had terrible storms here last night as a result not connections here when I got home. We had lots of flooding in the city but thankfully not in my part of the county. Congrats to Betsy on the soon to be retirement it will be here before she knows it.

Cat I say put the sign out NOW let your choice be proud as well. No need to hold back till a later date. I concur about your PLOF/SP comments I can't imagine where I'd be with out you all, surely still at 310 lbs if not more. I love each and everyone of you more than I can say.

Sorry my time has run out I need to get moving but again will try to catch up at work. It was a busy day yesterday as well as a good one.

Have a safe and healthy day everyone.

Hello ladies...this is our new addition..."Princess." She's a dorkie....daschund/yorkie and is a sweet little girl.

The boys seem okay with her so far. Micky seems less depressed and has stopped whining and Murphy definitely took a shine to her. Lucky is MEH...i'm still superior don't bother me!

Cat...i concur. My Murphy Brown is a chug...chihuaha/pug and i wouldn't trade him for the world! Sorry Mo...LOL

Have a great day!!

Hey Cat.......

WI averages 24 tornadoes a year. Sixty was the most ever.
Betsy picked our 26th anniversary on the 26th of August in 2021 for her retirement.
Wow! It wont be long after Betsy that you will be retired. Cool!
The screened in porch is Stanley. If we could combine facets of each, we would have a perfect place for us.

Very funny story on your bread machine. Thanks.

Betsy keeps us in stride with a daily visit from either UPS, Fed-ex, Amazon through USPO, Speedy Delivery, and countless other delivery services!!! LOL

I can relate to your neighbor as we are surrounded by trumpers.

All for now,
MO

Wow Mo, that's tornado was too close for comfort. Do you have them often in WI? Yay Betsy! What is the date she picked? That made me look, last time I was in the 700s, today it's only 537!!! Glad to hear you're feeling better. Screened in porches are one of my all time FAVORITE things! Is that Stanley or Winter? Looks like an awesome place for some swinging and contemplation.

I wondered what the reTrumplicans would say about 45's about face but it sounds like from your story that the propaganda news is choosing to edit that out. Not a big surprise.

DG congrats on taking the leap to online ordering! I would hate to admit how much I order from Amazon since the quarantine. Funny story - our bread machine broke so M ordered a super cute yellow one online and we laughed when it arrived (from China) as the cookbook and instructions and all the buttons on the machine were in Chinese. Returning that one.

Great word - portionedly. I'm going to think about applying that in all areas of my life. It's all about balance, right? And thanks, everything I've learned about consistent healthy living in my older life I've learned from this team. I may not be where I might prefer weight wise but overall I feel healthy for my age and way more active than I would have been without your constant support and SP's tools.

Maureen woke me up this morning saying she didn't know if she should tell me so led me to the living room window instead. The neighbors kittycorner (not the ones with the scary dog) had erected a flagpole with a big American flag and below that an equally large MAGA flag. Jesus, Joseph and Mary. It's in their backyard but you can see it from our front yard. People overall are nice and friendly here and I forget that a lot of the young folks are very conservative blue collar reTrumplicans. Always a shock coming from a blue city like Seattle where I'm sure there was this same demographic, just more of a quiet minority. I've heard tell we have many liberals on the island which is comforting, maybe just not in our neighborhood. I may have to put up our "NOPE" sign sooner than I thought and hope it doesn't get stolen. I sure hope Biden announces his running mate soon.

On that note I'll get back to work. We had a nice summery day yesterday but today we're 60 degrees at 1pm and drizzling. Bummer! Take care all.

We had tornado warnings last night. One hit in the town of Cadott that I mentioned recently as being halfway between the equator and the north pole. It is about 10 miles from us. Apparently the Catholic Church and school lost its roof, and many power lines were down.

More exciting than that is that on this hump day it is Betsys last day in the 400s towards retirement. Yay. We start the 300s tomorrow.

Bad news....All employees and prisoners were Covid tested last week, and they were 100% negative! This week, the first cases.......an employee.......and now possibly an inmate, whom would have had to have gotten it from the employee.

My injury is improving nicely. Any pain is not as intense, but I now have a more constant dull pain located at the base of my right ribs. And wouldnt you know, several times yesterday I had to sneeze. Not fun.

I know that my neighbor listens to pro-Trump stations all day long at work. I had about an hour conversation with him and his wife last night on my way home as they were walking down our road. Very interesting to listen to what he has to say. It is easy to tell how there is no changing his mind even though a lot of what he says does not make logical sense. I wish I had a picture of the look on his face when I told him that Trump has stated that day that this is going to get worse before it gets better. He told me he had listened to the speech and did not hear that, and obviously did not believe me. I told him I would check other sources, and called him later to let him know it was true. LOL

Cat - Way to think fast and save Juneau. If you ever have a reason to take the person to court, be sure to get on judge Judy as she has no tolerance for pitbulls. Im sure if she could pass a bill to make them extinct, she would.

DG - look at you continuing to try new things like ordering online! Talk about people being stupid. I read an article based on an older woman working at a small convenient store in the Raleigh Durham North Carolina area. She works for $10 an hour. They have tried all sorts of kind ways to get people to wear a mask, and she often gets cursed at by people refusing to wear a mask. She stated that the location of the store she works at causes her to have a lot of customers that have come from all over. Unbelievable, how ignorant and disrespectful people can be.

Carol - How exciting that another furbaby will have an opportunity to live within your household. It makes me smile to think of the joy it will bring to everyone. However, a Chihuahua mix would not be my choice. LOL.

Cheryl - Will you play pickle ball with us when we come to visit the PNW?

Slightly interesting news......... Possibly???? A casino in Milwaukee, which is the largest city in Wisconsin, just laid off 1600 workers. I found it amazing how many people work at the casino in order to lay that many off.

The world is absolutely crazy right now!

You all take care and be safe.

MO

PS - On Monday, I finally accomplished something that I have wanted to do. I relaxed on the hammock (that we purchased in Key West) in the screened in porch and fell asleep!

Late night post so it will be a short one.

Work was a good day and slightly busy so no complaints. Stepped out of my box tonight and actually order some shoes (sneakers) on line from easy spirit. I have a pair that I really like so decided to look at their site and made the move. On sale too !!!

Cheryl, sounds like your not to upset about the house next door being vacant do you think it will be for long? Is the renters market move quickly where you are? I hope the next tenants are more inclined to take care of things more while they are there. Nothing like bad neighbors that's for sure. Shame on the owners for not keeping things up. Hope things work out sooner than later for your sake. Love hearing you had such a good weekend and nothing wrong with making new friends especially the ones that like pickleball as much as you !!! I couldn't agree more about Mr Lewis, I think I read they filled his seat recently too - with a woman !!!

Cat you have become such an exemplary PLOF with all the challenges you are into not to mention the healthy foods you are making and eating portionedly -(my new word) Also helping to keep Maureen on the well side also. Def sounds like a lot to go thru for a haircut so hopefully you can do it when you have more to do in Seattle to make the trip totally worth it.

Well ladies my neck is hurting now so thats telling me it's enough time on the computer. Besides I'm getting tired and need to relax a bit before bedtime.

So sweet dreams to all as the morning will be here before we know it.

Hello Team - hope you had a happy Tuesday! Gotta stay positive.

Carol I need to see pics of Lindas boho bedroom! Was that the last of your current house projects? A new puppy! Fabulous just the joy you all need. I highly recommend a chihuahua mix!

John Lewis what an exemplary human being. I just watched the Clinton interview, thanks for the tip Cheryl. I am so glad he was able to live to see this Black Lives Matter outpouring of support for equity even though there is still a long way to go. We need more people like him in our world!

This weeks work challenge is hydration. I really upped my game yesterday which caused me to get up 3 times last night! I wish there had been more than 1 week of the step challenge but Ill keep that up anyway (although I have to say Ive got a bit of PTSD after the scary dog incident).

Ended up cancelling hair appointment last Saturday. After a 50 hour work week I just couldnt see spending half of Saturday on the freeway just to get my hair cut. We have some other errands in Seattle this weekend so may try to get in then.

Maureen's back continues to improve but still is not healed enough to go back to work. Mo, how are you doing with your injury? Better I hope!

Hump day already tomorrow. And I can't believe we are 3/4 of the way through July. Where has this year gone!

Good Tuesday to all my PLOF friends !!

Carol what a great idea a new girl fur baby. I mean what's one more especially when she will bring so much joy and happiness to the clan. Are you considering a puppy or adult ??? Can't wait to hear about the search.
Yes the medicare decision was not so difficult for me since I was still going to work as well. Since I still have work health coverage I just took the Part A as a back up since it was at no addt'l cost and will hold off taking part B and a supplement till I actually retire. I met with someone as well and that was my decision. Look forward to hearing what you decide as well.

Well it was hot as hades here yesterday and not much relief today tho there is a slight chance of some rain. When I came home yesterday the power had been out during the day - must have been a surge. A little lower temps each day ahead but it is July with August on the way so more of the same to come I'm sure.

Boy are people stupid !!! mostly the younger ones when it comes to doing the right thing with this COVID. They have not concerns for others, they or only thinking about getting out and having a good time. I pray the reopening's go back to being closed or minimally Phase One and that schools do not open until Jan. These children are at risk and the gov't only cares about the economy. I know people need to get back to work but it should not happen by putting lives at risk.

OK my 2cents is done ---- for now.

It was a long day at work yesterday but not too bad hope today goes smoothly and I can enjoy the time while there.

Sending out much love to all of you ladies and I wish you a wonderful healthy and safe day.

Good morning....

I am hearing the sweet sound of rain this morning. Cooler temps here for today as we will only see 90. It was nice yesterday too. We needed a break from the 100 degrees we have seen lately .

Work is fine and really quiet. After they laid off people they furloughed a lot of the builders for five weeks. I may possibly be furloughed later in the year (YAY). I am totally okay with that but right now we are busy. Still no more layoffs though.

I am meeting with someone this week to get medicare info as i have to sign up before my birthday. DG...you know how that is... all that can be confusing. I have a lot of questions about all that since i will continue to work for a bit after i turn 65.

We are starting to look for another little furbaby .Micky is so depressed after losing Molly and is just beside himself. We are looking to adopt a little girl as there is far too much boyness here and we also miss our little princess . Yes...Ms. Linda is the driving force behind this but I'm totally on board.

Have a great day all...be healthy!

Hello, hello, hello!

Cat, your momma bear instinct is at full tilt for sure. I hope your neighbors understand that they need to go to great lengths to protect the community from their dog and figure that out now.

The house next door is vacant again. The young lesbian couple bought a house and moved out at the first of the month. Lots of looky-loos but no one wants to rent the 2- bedroom 1 bath dump for over $2,000 a month. I have a friend that was interested but she doesn't want to pay more than $1800. Right now she's renting a home in West Seattle for about what they want next door. But, the home she's in now is a 4 bedroom home with a master suite with beautiful bath and walk-in closet. Downstairs is kitchen and living area with deck facing a greenbelt.

Oh well, let it stay vacant. They don't even mow the yard to make it look nice for potential renters.

Getting lots of pickleball in and the friends we're making are amazing. I had a happy weekend.

Take care! And be safe!! emoticon

Happy start to another new week friends,

I enjoyed a really fun time with Karen yesterday and a delicious salad for lunch out with her. She brought me a gift - a string of hummingbird solar lights that change colors when lit, soooo pretty. I will try to share the pic I took with my phone to PLOF if I can figure it out. Still working on that, LOL !

Ok here's to a new week ahead may it be more calm than the last and more enjoyable at work. I send you all good wishes for the same and vibes to stay healthy safe and positive.

Here we go girls ...........

Well it's now Saturday afternoon and I have made good progress this morning getting errands done. Now I'll be in out of the heat for the rest of the day. Got most everything I need to get done with the exception of milk and yogurt that I can get tomorrow if I venture out with Karen. Dusky will be glad to have me with him the rest of this day and my bro and SIL leave tomorrow till next Friday from their trip to NC, I hope they stay mindful of masks and distancing. My bro has some denial of the case counts so I'll be quarantining myself from them when they return just in case.
Oh well looking forward to the peacefulness of the house for a week.

Cat my gosh you are quick as lightning to have saved Juneau like that as those pits are fast and angry. I can imagine the fear it put in both of you hon. I'm sure your hair will look adorable on you no matter what the style/cut you have such a nice face for any type of "do". I'm sure you will be sure that all things are safe while you are there.

Carol I know we'd love to see pics of Linda's room and your awesome handy work. So will look forward to them. Yes I was surprised to hear John Lewis passed this morning on the news he was such an influence to the case and will def be missed and honored forever. Your temps sound like ours here too good that you have the energy to get out and get your walk in too before the heat of the day gets higher. Stay cool and calm my friend. We really don't have problems with signs being removed in our neighborhood but I don't put any out anyway. When I lived upstairs I always had my rainbow flag out but now where to put it now as Rod put up a huge pole and flies the stairs and stripes along with the MD flag. No room for mine, oh well.

Well by the look at numbers on the clock it is wine time so send you all love and well wishes for the lovely rest of the day and of course a safe and healthy one also.

Good morning..

RIP John Lewis....we lost a strong and wise leader. He will be missed!!


Gotta get up early to get outside to walk . Its 78 degrees at 5am and later it'll be 100. I also have a couple things to do in the yard and want to get it done before 10 am.

Cat...so glad you and Juneau escaped your close call with the dog. Sometimes those breeds are a bit scary and dangerous...i guess it depends how they are raised. I don't know. Love the sign too but if i put one like that up it would disappear for sure.

Linda and i are both doing well. I need to take some pics of her room. Its really boho but that is what Ms. Linda wanted so she's happy!

Ladies...have a wonderful weekend. Be safe!

Carol thanks for the heads up on Michelles podcast! Cant wait to hear what she has to say. And very sad about the funeral director. I too thought funerals were limited to 2-3 people but maybe that was only in NY.

Havent gotten many steps in today. Last night coming back from my walk with Juneau she was almost killed by the pitbull that the neighbors across the street recently brought home. I was standing next to our pickup talking at a distance with Jeff our next door neighbor and all of sudden the grey pitbull escaped their front door and made a beeline for Juneau. I moved faster than I knew I could, scooped her up and held her to my chest leaning into the truck Jeff had my back and was able to wrestle the dog off me. No biting, it was all totally silent except for Juneaus yelp when she saw first the dog. The owners came tearing up the hill from their house yelling at me to watch out, I think they knew there was no way to stop him/her. So scary and gave me heart palpitations and nightmares. I reported it to the office and they will send a warning. I think the only thing that can be done is a really tall fence but Maureen says pits can fly over them.

As she was feeling guilty for really hacking my hair last week Maureen made a hair appointment for me at our hair cutting place back in Seattle tomorrow. Im a bit nervous but Im sure the stylist will be taking precautions. Its going to have to be VERY short to look right.

Leftover shrimp tacos for dinner and a nice salad with lettuce from le jardin.
Have a great weekend all!

TGIF ladies, woo hoo !!!!

Carol I admit I understand that reasoning, I've heard that before from other companies so they have to do what they have to do. Yeah it's pretty darn hot here too with threatening storms each day. Good you have some indoor projects to tackle. I have no doubt you will share some of Michele's podcast with us if possible. Such a shame about the local funeral director, what's wrong with people that they can not understand what's going on, death does not lie !!! I know you and Linda will do what needs to be done to keep you and others as safe as possible.

Cat - OMG I love the sign !!! Never saw that one before, I'd be temped to have it on my lawn for sure !!! So glad you are enjoying the challenge with workmates, such good idea as I previously mentioned, keep at it hon. YUM shrimp fajitas Maureen is a blessing for sure, hope she's feeling better.

Hope today is a good one at work and goes quickly. I am looking forward to the weekend, no particular reason just 2 days off.

Ok Dusky is nudging me for attention and I need to move along anyway. Have a safe and healthy day my friends.

Good morning....

So glad it's Friday....very hot here! I have indoor projects for the weekend.

Textron is huge company and policy is set a long ways upward from where i am. Unfortunately they do this because some employees steal a lot of pricey stuff tools, parts like electronics, sound systems, leather , etc when they are left to their own devices. I totally get it. When i was a foreman we had an employee who backed his truck up to a door and stole our product to work on car finishes at home. That was pre-textron but still. Even some of our fine grade sand paper is pricey $200 a box or $500 a roll for 8000 grit. So its for the best probably to do it the way they do across the board .

Anyway....covid hit our small town. The local funeral director is really sick. He got it at a large funeral where there were no masks and no social distancing! I was shocked they even had a large funeral....most people are cremating and having a small family gathering later. Probably end up with a cluster from this....sad.

FYI....Michelle Obama is starting a podcast in the end of July on Spotify. I can't wait...it sounds like it will really be full of positivity and encouragement! I need that!

Have a great day all....be healthy

Mo, glad you had a good day. Maureen swears by hot showers and baths with Epsom salts. At first it was at least a couple time per day. That and of course ice several times per day especially after you move a lot. Take care time heals all wounds they say. Come visit Camano Island and the San Juan Islands and you may decide it is close enough to your friends lol!!

Carol, that was brutal. Really makes one feel less than but they have their protocols I suppose. Seems like the abruptness might cause people who would have gone willingly angry. Its a mess out there, those of us still working are indeed fortunate.

I think Im in week 3 after divorcing Facebook. I had to deactivate my profile although it is stll there if I choose to reactivate at a later time. I have to say I am feeling MUCH more peaceful with myself. I look at news on the BBC daily for a short take on the biggest world stories and call it good. I dont know if Im allowed to post political signs here on SP but am doing it anyway. The sign I ordered for the front yard. Its not very big but makes the point. I wont put it out until 60 days prior to Novembers election as is the law here (not that everyone adheres to the limitation).


Ive been seeing all these shows about infringement of voting rights especially in the south and the fight over mail in ballots. I looked it up and for WA state we had an 18 day voting period to mail in our ballots during our January presidential primary. We no longer have in person voting at least in the counties around here. It should be that way everywhere. The real cheating goes on by the governors and state elections boards in the states where they have unfair voting practices. OK, I can feel my blood pressure rising!!

Its been fun participating in the step challenge with my workmates. Ive been using some good old PLOF motivation on my younger colleagues, we even walked in place during a meeting today.

Maureen made me shrimp fajitas for dinner such a delicious surprise especially since she doesnt eat meat. Thats love for ya! Take care ya'll.

Hey ya'll, just a quick post before I fix a big salad for dinner and then turn off the PC for the evening.

Mo sounds like your lower rib area, sure hope it mends soon, take care. Don't move stay still, ha like that's gonna happen, emoticon

Yeah can you believe those governors - ridiculous just another example of $$$ before lives. Makes no sense at all. Thankfully our numbers here in MD and still hanging lower; it's the weekends that scare me tho'. You're right it didn't have to get this far but the ahole in TWH puts himself and $$$ before lives. He's really has not chance now in Nov.

Work was fine not too busy but busy enough and so happy tomorrow is Friday and pay day !!!

Time for that salad so hope your evening is pleasant and comfortable.

Wear your mask, stop the spread and stay safe.

Hello there PLOFERS!

Carol - Oh my, that was an awful experience for everyone. It seems to me that in the old days people could take their stuff, etc. When I was 19, I was laid-off from a factory job. I had not had the job long, and I dont remember much about it. It seems that as let-go employees have returned to the workplace or were prepared at the workplace with items of destruction secreted in their personal belongings, employers needed to change the way they handled the procedure of removing folks. It is so sad.

DG - I would call the type of fall I took on the stairs one week ago tonight as like a body slam. It wasnt like a slide or slip. It was as if my feet came out from under me and than dropped me on the steep stairs. The good news is that today is a good day - the best day- yet. I am down to an amount of reasonable pain on my right side. The pain is located right where your body bends when you do a side bend. Luckily, it only hurts when I move.

Cheryl & Cat - I have never been to the PNW. However, it is on our retirement/Covid under control plans! It looks absolutely beautiful. Very green, which I like. As much as it looks like an environment that We could move to, it would be too for from our core friends.

I am watching a little CNN as I write, and it seems like Georgia and Florida have some real winners for governors. Also, I see Arizona is bringing in 4 refrigerator trucks. I really dont think it needed to be like this.

Wear a mask, stay 6 away and wash your hands!

Take care ya all,
MO

Thankful Thursday friends, we PLOF have a lot to be thankful for that's for sure !!!

Oh my Carol that was awful !!! I mean it wasn't like it wasn't expected that it could happen, that is the cruelest thing I have heard to lay off staff. And you having to see them come and go, those people responsible should be ashamed of how they did what they did. I can't imagine what your day must have been like hon. Hang in there.

I'm ready for the day as much as I can be as I head in to work with a positive attitude to get me started and will pray that it get's me thru the day. When I get frustrated I will look up to the Lord for support and guidance.

Send you all good positive wishes for a pleasant and peaceful, safe and healthy day.

Good morning...

DG...those people got NO notice. It was awful The supervisor came and got them one at a time and took them to the office . We never saw them again and it took hours! They could not even get their posessions. After they were walked to the office, the supervisors came and got purses, cell phones, or car keys, whatever they needed at that time to leave and later the supervisor went back and boxed up all their stuff ....the personal items that were in their tool boxes and desks. It was brutal! My work area is right on the aisle to the offices....i had to watch every one of them walk up there. Ugh ...it was awful!

On that note....have a great day!!

Hello and good evening ladies,

Just a strange day at work and not to busy but just enough each hour not to be bored to death. Still just feeling out of sorts and I really need to stop keeping up with the news thru out the day. And as I've said before it's not just me so trying to remind myself of that often does take some of the edge off.
Well tomorrow is another day and the last day before my coworker takes some much deserved time off. Monday is her birthday so I'll take her gift in with me tomorrow so she can enjoy it. I bought her a fabric craft made bowl that I got while out Sunday as well as a lavender plant and a little ornament type thingy that says Queen Bee on it which is her tag name, I think she will be pleased.

Carol when is the last day for your coworkers that have been left go? Perhaps they left when notified??? Thankfully I've never been part of a lay off so I'm not familiar with the process. Thank goodness they are getting at least some (minimal) compensation. Times are def tough right now for the recent unemployed. They can qualify for unemployment but it's def not the same as a pay check . The previous unemployed I understand were getting an addt'l $600 a month but that stops end of this month. Pelosi I read wants it to continue but the GOP thinks it holds them back from looking for work. I've heard some people say they make more unemployed than they were working - who knows ???? I'm not in their shoes so I won't have an opinion on it .

Cheryl glad your sleep is improving hon and I hope you can get in as much pickleball as you can handle !!!

Mo, I'm very concerned about your injury. From what you describe sounds like a lot more going on in there than you know. How long ago did it happen, I forgot. I've never heard of pain "moving to different parts of your body" as you say. Please be wise and keep a close watch before it gets worse. emoticon

Well I'm ready to relax and unwind for a while before it's time to call it a day. Sweet dreams everyone.

Hi everyone! Wow, Carol, 800 laid off! That will definitely hit the community hard but am so glad you're safe for now.

Mo, Silver Falls State Park is about a 400 mile drive south and I haven't been there. Guess I better put it on my list. emoticon I think you would like the PNW. You and Betsy should definitely plan a visit.

And my sleep has improved. I think having cats and, Blue Eyes, is a big boy, doesn't help. The bed isn't big enough for all of us. Hopefully, being out in the fresh air playing pickleball will help. The same group plays Tuesdays and Saturdays and maybe on Sundays too. Since we can't really go anywhere or do anything social inside, pickleball is it.

Hope the new meds help Maureen and make a noticeable difference.

Hey there PLOFers!

Carol - Do people that had to leave have investments towards a retirement within the Company? I have heard of situations where people were expecting a pension, and then the company goes down and they get no pension. I find those situations absolutely horrendous because the people devoted all their time with plans of having a safety net for the future, and it gets pulled out from under them. Although your company is not folding, do people that work for your company secure a retirement after so many years? Were you surprised that the company did not offer any early retirements?

DG - Glad your day was off to a good start. How did the rest of it go?

Cat - I i’ve never been to the PNW. it sure looks like a great place to visit. I think it would be too far from the core of my friends as a place to retire to although it looks retirement worthy.

Cheryl - Has your sleep improved?

I woke up at 4 AM when Kismet used the side of my body right where the pain has mostly moved to as she crossed from one side of the bed. The pain was super intense. I then needed to get up to use the restroom, and it’s a good thing we don’t have any neighbors. I had the worst pain that I have experienced with this issue and that includes when it happened. I could not find a pain-free way to lay in bed, so I got up and sat in a recliner and fell back asleep. I am using this day to rest and stay on top of taking Tylenol. It is kind of weird how the pain moves to different parts of my body.

Well, I better start trying to get up as I feel the urge to use the restroom.

Take care,
MO

Good Hump day morning my lovely friends,

I am determined to take this good mood start through the rest of the day !!! I'll do what needs to be done to make that happen.

Carol I am so happy for you that your worry has been lifted of course it is sad for those not so fortunate. How many others are still there now and what will you have to do ? I felt you were not quite ready for retirement yet and you will know when the time comes. Till then do what you can to be happy.

Cat so good to hear from you and an update on Maureen. Gee from all the results of her appt sounds like she's should be slowing down with the type of work she does but from your conversations about her that will be quite difficult for her to switch into doing.
The challenge sounds like a good one for sure !!! So nice that you have a active group to do it with as apposed to just our friendly supportive group. I wish I had that as well with a group at work but I have found they dwindle away so I hope your group stays active for you. Keep us posted how it goes.

Mo glad you are figuring out how to work thru your injury. If it doesn't improve significantly in a week perhaps a dr visit would be more informative about the injury ??? Hang in there hon.

I completely support staying away from others out in public. I'm glad I have the few close friends that I can rely on being as conscious and safe as I am during this time. And yes it seems like it will be around for quite a while. Sure wish people would all realize this is for real and live accordingly. But we all just really need to do what is safe for ourselves and others as well. It's not all about just me.
My bro and SIL are leaving Friday for a vacation to NC some secluded beach they said so when they return I will def quarantine myself from them for 14 days. Hardheads !!!!!! It will be nice to have some peace and quite coming from upstairs during their absence tho', that's for sure.

Well the morning is moving along and my tummy is grumbling and Dusky wants a little morning attention. I wish you all a good day in all ways. Stay safe and stop the spread !!!

Good morning...

So nice to sleep and not worry about losing my job. Now i only have covid and trumpty dumpty on the list to fret over but hopefully one of those will "magically" disappear in November.

Mo the people that left got 2 months pay and benefits. That's it but with the number of unemployed here it'll be difficult to find something else especially the older folks. They did NOT offer an early retirement to anyone .Some of the people that went had quite a few years but it appeared they got rid of dead weight...people with attendance problems etc. Still sad though...its gonna be difficult for them.

Raining here at this moment but over the weekend....100-102 degrees. Yikes...i will be staying in!

Have a great day...be safe!

Carol so glad the wait is over for you but Im sad for your co-workers that lost their jobs. Scary during normal times but now - so many out of work.

Mo, take it easy! I havent been to that park but Ive been all over Oregon which is absolutely gorgeous especially the coast. Have you visited the PNW? And DG, for sure, like you said it seems like everything has changed. I wear a mask and gloves everywhere I go and it freaks me out when people especially at the grocery store get too close! Its the new normal I suppose and for some reason I have it in my mind that we are just starting out the next 6 months of this.

Our trip to the doctors for M went smoothly yesterday. Traffic into town and out was much lighter than in the old days and there was no wait anywhere at the medical center. Kind of like a ghost town for 1pm. She had her back xrayed, we met with her doctor who I really like, she had a 2nd set of xrays for her hip, we got meds and then left. She was given a new med specificially for nerve pain but still hasnt taken it. She takes SO many drugs per day now and is afraid there would be some kind of negative interaction. She mowed here at home today so well see what she feels like tomorrow morning. It was only the 2nd time Ive been into Seattle since March. It was kind of fun but I dont miss it.

Our group of staff started the UW Summer Like No Other Challenge. This week is week one which is steps, my count for yesterday was just over 6500. The following weeks have one challenge per week including hydration, meditation, financial motivation, strength training and volunteerism. We submit our points as a group.

OK, Im feeling like its time to start dinner and the go for a walk. The weather is finally taking a turn to summer! Take care all.

Hey there PLOFERS!

DG - The me of the past did not slow down much, but I eventually decided it wasnt getting what I really wanted in life. Therefore, the me of today probably sits around too much. That evasive happy medium is hard to come by for some!

I was very pleased with the amount of pain that I was in this morning, but I may have either over done it or forgot to stay on top of meds as the pain became worse s the day went on. Still better than I expected.

Carol - What a sad situation at your work. So what happens to the people who had to leave? What do they all lose? How would things have changed if you were let go? Thanks for explaining in advance.

All for now.
MO

So this happened this morning. Mo...no news is not good news unfortunately. I saw a lot of people walked out today and lose their jobs and it was sad. But the layoffs here are now done and i have my answer ...........i am safe. No furlough or layoff for me. Sweet but still sad for those who went!






Later

Hello from work ladies, don't know how long it will take to post this so will give it a try. Here goes.....

Mo how's your pain level today hon? If your ready to let the mower go I say go for it while you have an interested buyer, good luck !! Let me ask; do you ever just relax during the day and do nothing, LOL ??? I bet that is just hard for you to do often.

Thanks for your concerns regarding my work situation, it's just very frustrating these days here at the hospital with people not understanding why they can't visit and why some of the offices are closed. COVID has just changed everything about everything and most everyone as well. And today is no different than any of the others have been just as irritating with people's bad attitudes. This too shall pass !!!! Soon I hope because retirement looks better and better each day and I don't want it to be. So thank you and all PLOF for being so kind and understanding as COVID effects me as well.

Ok I better end this now, maybe tonight will work out, we shall see how that goes.

Peace out

Hey there PLOFERS!

Carol - is ANY news better than NO news? I am thinking so?? Wishing for the best for you!

DG - Dang, too many rough days for my friend....makes me sad. Wishing for brighter days for you!

Cat and Cheryl - We just saw pics from our friend that went to Silver Falls State Park near Portland, Oregon. Is that near you? Have either of you been there? So beautiful!

It is pouring rain here. I need to run to the big town today for just a few errands.

When I took the mower to get the belt replaced, the mechanic had just received a call that day from someone looking for our type of mower. We may sell it if the guy wants it. Forced exercise if we only have the push mower. Selling it could be a mistake, but once we leave Stanley we wont need it. A push mower is just fine for Winter, and who knows what comes next. One less thing to move and maintain.

All for now.

Hello and good evening friends,

Cheryl I hope you are able to catch up on your lost sleep tonight but sounds like the weather helped you to bounce back to have a good day. Earlier to bed tonight girl !!! WOW and you managed to get a haircut this weekend too good for you. I need one so bad but I refuse to go just yet, it's hard enough for me to get to the grocery stores and when I do I get in and out fast.
So sorry to hear about your friend and I will add her to my prayer list. hard to imagine so many immediate family members with the same cancer, so sad indeed.

Yes that a hole is def has been the worse person in TWH this country has every had but it will soon end and we can destroy all that he has done and make this country what it should be and has always been admired for. We will no longer be laughed at by the rest of the world. But until then we just need to stop the spread and take care of each other. Love always wins !!!

MO - No wonder you had so much pain. It just looks painful and I bet it takes a long time to fade away as well. Look don't worry too much about your weight, it may be that you need new batteries or it may be lack of physical activity (which I doubt about you) so change the battery and weigh again on Wednesday and see what it says then. If it's still the same or something you are not happy with it must be true. Just work at bringing it down again. You can do it you know that and if you are determined you will do it again. I have a feeling your scale needs new batteries.( I hope for you.) NEVER GIVE UP !!!! We are here to cheer you on emoticon

A busy day at work and found out today we have a new CEO coming on at the end of the month. Our current one gave his notice a year ago but said he'd stay on until a new one was found. He's been good for our hospital as much as he could be having his hands tied to Ascension. Our hospital was so much more compassionate and employee minded when it was run by the nuns (Daughters of Charity) but those days seem to be gone. Will be interesting to see where this new guy takes us for sure. I have no doubt change is coming - AGAIN !!! I'm still doing the 3 1/2 year count down now.

Well I'm a bit low on what to chat about so will just say good night and wish you all a pleasant evening.

Hey there PLOFers!

Did you see were John Travoltas wife passed away from breast cancer at age 57 after two-year battle?

Cheryl - hope tonight brings you a peaceful night of sleep. I cant imagine waiting until the middle of July for summer to arrive. I thought Wisconsin was bad. Sorry to hear about your friends cancer diagnosis. Hopefully, she will be one of those brave souls that fights through and survives.

DG - I love when you report that you had such a wonderful weekend. You work so hard during the week that you deserve those relaxing, Friend-filled, reenergizing weekends.

Carol - right on with your Rant.

Cat - How was croquet? How is Mo?

Hey there PLOFers!

Unbelievable improvement from yesterday in terms of the pain I have been experiencing in my back from the fall on the stairs. I was even able to pick something up from the floor. I am very pleased with the reduction in pain, and for see continued improvement. I feel I will be back to “normal” sooner than I expected. Yeah.
I have Absolutely no idea what happened to my weight this morning on the scale. Because I had been in Winter, I was unable to weigh for three days. I was very determined during my three days in Winter to continue eating the way I had been, which was causing me to lose weight. I was focused to stay under 230 and hopefully get to 228 again. I made so many good decisions, and made a number of sacrifices in an attempt to reach my goal. I got on the scale this morning, and it said 236 point something. I haven’t seen that number in forever. Where did that come from? How can that even be? I had been under 230 for at least a solid week. Could the fall on the stairs have had anything to do with it?

Yep...a new week. I had a horrible night sleep but am here at work bright and early. Will be a good week weather-wise. Our summer has arrived. Croquet sounds fun, Cat and you'll be able to get a lot of play in this week for sure.

Glad you had a nice day out and about, DG. I think we can definitely be smart when we are out using masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing.

I got my hair cut for the first time by a licensed professional. She did a good job and didn't take too much off.

Take care, Mo. Sounds like you're doing what you can which means resting and meds.

OMG the ass that is in the WH continues to prove what a lunatic he is - he cares nothing about representing our Country but only of himself. A leopard doesn't change his spots.

Alrighty, Carol, watching for updates. Take care and stay safe...that goes for all of us.

We have a friend diagnosed with breast cancer (it runs in her family) last month and she's started chemo. She's in good spirits and will do what she needs to do re treatment. Her mother went through it and her two sisters as well. Extra tough during time of COVID-19.

Well here we are again at the top of another new week my friends,

I had a nice day out and about with Linda yesterday and did everything very safely and mindfully of others and ourselves wherever we went which was mostly outdoors. When back to my house she helped me with some ideas of redoing things in my house. Good time spent together. Now back to work.

Yep COVID is running rapid with no end in sight and what does he care ???? NOTHING unless it is all about him. He just wants those who don't think like him to be gone and I think that's why he doesn't give a hoot about covid taking lives.
I try not to hate anything or anyone so I just better pray emoticon I do not like to wish my life away but I hope Nov gets here soon.

end of my rant.

Carol hope work goes well for you this week hon.

Mo so sorry to hear your are still in pain hon. keep taking the meds and just stop doing things and rest. Do you know what that means, LOL !!! It will def take a while to heal so the longer you move about the longer it will take to heal. Now be good to you. Will look for your weigh in stats when you can.

Ok ladies time to get moving so I send you all good wishes for a good start to the week making good choices and safe decisions.

Good morning...

Trumpty dumpty never turns down a chance for a photo op. I think its horrible they want to send the children back to school when clearly covid is out of control. We need some f-ing leadership and a plan to get ourselves out of this mess. Lives are at stake.

There's my rant! Have a great week all...Que sera sera!

Hey there PLOFERS!

From the bed to the couch so far for me today. It hurts to change positions or bend even just slightly. I have learned to stay on top with the meds. Because I initially was able to do things, I didnt think anything was really wrong and wasnt taking any meds. Boy did that change. Last night was horrible. No boating or golfing for us today. We are watching golf, and then I plan to get in the hot tub. We will need to go back to Stanley as Bets has work, and I am to go to the big town for errands.

All I got for now.

DG - I will be able to weigh tomorrow morning and will report to you!

Good Sunday friends,

I've read all the posts, and will just comment lightly as I will be leaving shortly for the farmers market and then a walk with Linda in the hood.

I want to comment that tRUMP got what he wanted from all the news stations with their "BREAKING NEWS" that he wore a mask for the 1st time in public - Big Fing DEAL !!!! but just the attention he craves. It and he is disgusting !!!

sorry.

As I see most all of us are on the side of incline with our weigh increasing, let us not lose hope ladies. This too shall pass. Hang in there and just continue to be mindful as much as we can. We will get through this and we will do it together.

Sorry I miss my post yesterday as I had a very productive day in the house with a project. The only time I went out in the scorching heat was to the trash can !!! Slept in till 8:30 this morning and I must say I enjoyed the peaceful day to myself and of course Dusky.

Time for breakfast, so thank you all for being here and always being the best support I've ever known. I love you all. Enjoy this Sunday.

I will try to comeback later if possible.
