    Yay, RRW! You work hard and you deserve some warm time off!

    I try to forget I have an upstairs. Except when I have to choose another book to read or use the shower with the 1970's shower head. I'm thinking about calling Busy Brooms for a Christmas present to me.

    Oh goody! A trip! You'll be pretty close to KY. I'll wave when you go by. Pink, what kind of dogs are those? Cute pics! They all look pretty impressed with themselves.

    I like your tree, QB! Very inventive! I had the flu for my birthday last month. No fun, but I didn't die like I thought I would. I'm glad to see you still have a cowgirl. It works out well for both of you. Pink, how's your mom?

    Wow! I guess it's a good thing we only got rain. But it was 4 inches of rain. That would have made a lot of snow!

    Happy Turkey Day, everyone!

    You're a good neighbor, PD.

    What is?

    ^^^Thanks, but you didn't stop soon enough. I only have a Staufer's frozen dinner to eat! Sounds pretty sparse next to your lunch. I shouldn't have been complaining about our wind. It was in the 50's and no snow. We've lucked out compared to a lot of the country.
  10. The Front Porch

    I could send you all our wind that's blowing 45 mph. It would move that snow.

    Good job, RRW! Did you paint with a brush or spray? Since you had plastic only on the floor, I guess brush.

    My older sister lives next door to my younger sister. The younger one keeps her grandsons, ages four and six, after school. She sends them next door for a break and snack. The six year old is fascinated by Aunt Ann's push button couch. She told him to stop pushing buttons because he could jam the mechanism. He got mad and went back to Granny's house and said he left because Aunt Ann wouldn't follow his rules! (But he returned later for his snack!)

    That's cute! Isn't it wonderful when they learn to spit?!

    RRW, I have cousins I only see at funerals. We always say we're going to do better, but we don't. I got a flu shot today. I already had the flu three weeks ago, so in about two weeks, I'll be bombproof. PD, I've done that before. But usually it's because I looked at the wrong appointment card, and I should be at the doctor's office.

    RRW, you can put skylights in the Grandmother room. An almost glass roof! VW's are great in the snow. Only thing that can beat them is a Corvair. But they all rusted to dust. I hope you get a truck. It would be hard to give up that high ride.

    My warm yummy drink of choice is cocoa. Plain. I need all my wits to deal with Jubal! NO PLANTS! I don't need any more live things to take care of. But I like to look at other people's plants. I have a friend who added a small greenhouse to the back of her kitchen during a remodel. I think an atrium would be great for you. Or add a lot of glass to the Grandmother room.
  17. The Front Porch

    Haha! I know you're bored and need something to do.
  18. The Front Porch

    Does your rail yard or motel grounds have room for a greenhouse? Another business!
  19. The Front Porch

    You're very talented with the arrangements, RRW. Have you ever done that professionally?
  20. The Front Porch

    What a great set up for Grandmas! A room to hide in when tired of visiting. And for parents, a place to send kid when he gets on your last nerve.

    Could the depression be a side effect of one of her meds? Or maybe the combination of the meds?

    After three vodkas, I'd be passed out on top of the paint project! I used a blue wine bottle with a liquor pourer for dish soap that stays out on the counter. You have to watch that guests don't try to drink it though.
  23. The Front Porch

    Is that three olives or three vodkas? Some couples have date night every week. I think date free night would also be beneficial.
  24. Prayers Please

    Yes, Pink. You need to stick to your guns and do what's necessary. As I'm sure you know, dehydration can cause many of the things she is experiencing. You can worry about defying her after she is hydrated and thinking clearly. She may not even remember.

    We have those in KY too, but not where I live, thank heaven.
