    Hello Sue! I see you've just opened the 62nd CGCH thread. If I sit down, you may catch up with my years of sojourning on this planet Earth.... [​IMG]

    Hope all is well with the rest of the posters. Here in the Big Apple it is cool. Typical fall weather. My wife is waiting for the doctor's recommendation of wether surgery or no surgery with her broken left arm. At work we are extremele busy. At church, we are praying for a building or property (which we could afford). Have a nice day all! [​IMG]

    Enjoying a relaxing day. Worked at the clinic (bookkeeping, ordering, drone labour) and then just came home to put the feet up and watch Dan Blather talk about how awful everything is.

    Like the guy whose wife rubbed limburger cheese in his moustache, then he went around the whole day complaining that everything smelled bad.

    Oh well. Making omelets for supper so not a lot of prep time and I can enjoy a few minutes on the BB.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better Dr.B.!

    I am going to the recliner until 8:00 and then to bed. I had to put the brace, on my elbow again, with the gel pad you heat in the microwave. It is very painful tonight.

    Doctor says "tennis elbow" - I say "arthritis"!

    Hard to bend my arm enough to type without it hurting so I am bidding you all a good night and...

    Pleasant dreams!

    Would you believe my last kids JUST left? The last two were because of a horrible wreck on I-20 but the two who left just before that, Dad gets off at 5:00 just a few miles from here and it takes him almost 3 hours to pick up the girls on Tues. and Thurs. Wife gets off at 8:00. Another night feeding 8 people on OUR budget! YIKES! Thankful I could add some rice and make it stretch!

    Glad you're feeling better Dr. Bob!

    Barnabas, any word from the doctor on Lenke? Is she still in pain?

    Sue, I must have missed you hurting your arm! Is it from the papers being so large now? I'd assume they'll stay that way through the holidays. :(

    Ty comes early tomorrow so I shouldn't stay up so late tonight. Jim's out at church.

    Dr. Bob, Did I say that?! Wow, I am going to have to be very careful here about my expressions. Actually, I didn't really have any person in mind, just makes sense, anyway, glad you are honest enough to see yourself sometimes. [​IMG] I think there are times when we all get grumpy or mean. And since you've shown yourself to have such a good sense of humor, I'll enjoy testing the limits. (busy typing away)
    [​IMG] Evidently you reside near me in the west? I heard you talk of travel around Idaho. We were in Wyoming three years ago to see your National Park Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

    Oh Fireweed! Dr. Bob has a very funny and dry sense of humor. LOLOL. Watch out for Blackbird, Gib, Dr. Bob and my husband, Jim (who seldom posts and then writes novels like me!)

    So, now, Fireweed... you've given us no hint! I'm guessing you're a guy with a '59 Chevy.

    Close?

    Rather wild day here...ran around getting this and that done, picking out pictures and such that we're taking on our "big move", etc.. Helped a friend with an accounting project, helped a neighbor with his reading comprehension assignment. Get amused when these people ask me how I homeschool without a college education, then ask me for help with their own stuff. HA! I've never done accounting before and am horrid at math, but for some reason I got where it was messed up and knew what to do. Scared myself! I'm starting to convince myself that I'm a genius trapped in an idiot's brain...

    As a bit of added fun for the night my downstairs neighbor got a big crack in her ceiling and the ceiling is leaking so bad it's mushy. Called maintenance, they said they'd be out tomorrow. So I called them myself and they were here within half an hour. Turns out some wax seal in MY place under the commode is causing it, so we turned off the water and they'll be back first thing in the morning to rip up my bathroom. Yay.

    Hey, yall. We had a good day here. The girls and I had a wonderful picnic of boiled eggs, grapes, cookies, and basketti noodles (their choice). It was really alot of fun.

    We are bird-sitting a cockatiel for a dear friend of ours, and we have one, too, so this is gonna be a crazy week. And MY bird said his very first words tonight!!!! She said "pretty bird"!! And THAT - she is. She said it twice. DH says I am just a bird mama who really wants to hear it, thus *making* myself hear it, but a bird mama knows her bird babies words!!! She wolf whistled for the first time 2 days ago. She may be a he b/c he's are more vocal.

    For supper, I fixed Jambalaya for the non-dieters and cauliflower casserole and chicken breasts for the dieters. Our two baby-sitters eat with us on Tuesdays after piano lessons are over. We love them like our own. They are sisters the same aga apart as our girls are, so its fun to kinda see our future.

    Well, bowing outta here for the night. Have a goreat day/night!!

    Good morning all:

    Diane: The arm thing is a carry-over from last year. It flares up quite often, but not usually this bad. I couldn't even lift my fork to my mouth last night (not necessarily a BAD thing). :rolleyes:

    It got to where I couldn't lift things with my right arm last year. The elbow is where it hurts. Doctor said 'tennis elbow'. I don't think so. I put Aspercreme on it last night and it doesn't feel too bad this morning. I doubt 'slinging' papers every day helps... :(

    Gina: You sound like you're having a 'normal' week for YOU! [​IMG]

    Tater: Stick to your guns. WE know what our 'babies' are saying! :D

    fireweed: I see Dr.Bob now has some competition in the 'satire' department - keep up the good work! [​IMG]

    I'm not sure what kind of Christmas 'goodies' we're making today. I kind of go by when Brent gets his goals done for the day and how much time we have left before we do the papers.

    Off to check other forums,

    Morning All! I honestly didn't sleep in. Ty had a bad night so he went back to sleep on a pallet in the t.v. room and I let him sleep until 9:00. All the kids have head colds. Guess we can't help it since I'm bringing in kids from four class rooms and 2 schools plus Nick and the 2 tiny ones.

    It got down to 37° here last night but is already 48°. It'll still get up to 65° by time school is out so the kids can play outside some.

    Speaking of Rock Concerts... Jim's mastering CD's for our churches youth Praise Band. They practiced last night and are going to do some work on it this weekend. Jim said they'll all be hard of hearing by time they're in their 40's. They play really loud.

    Oh it's lovely here Debby! Crisp, cool and less bugs! I hate mosquitoes and what they can do to Nick so we really enjoy this time of year when they're so few!

    Feels like apple picking time!

    HEy! Its 72 here and beautiful "playin' outside" weather. We are about to go do that.

    GIB and BLACKBIRD - we might just be adding cocktiel to our recipe- he won't shut up!!! He is good, but he's just loud!!!! (*Must be a male - always crowin' loudly about something!!) [​IMG]

    The girls and I had a "photo shoot" this morning for the calendar we are going to be in. It was actually fun. I dont usually like photographer behavior, but this fella just sat on the floor and took pictures while we played. Then we went to McDonald's to play in the "thing".

    I have a couple of lessons on Wednesday afternoon, but until then, we are off to collect acorns and frogs.
    Bye!

    Boy Howdy. Cool, wet Wyoming where the skies ARE cloudy all day. 36F and dropping so we should see snow tonight. Still need the elms to shed their leaves or we will lose some branches.

    Working on vacation plans - we have a week in Feb and will probably cruise. Going to talk to my agent about some deals Princess is running. May fly to Houston/Galveston, rather than all the way to Miami.

    Always nice to look ahead to vacation . . especially when you are disabled and EVERY day involves only minimal work! But the wife really needs it and Christmas will NOT be a vacation with 3 kids, 3 spouses and 8 grandkids in our little bungalow!

    Maybe we should plan a cruise for THAT week . .

    Just received an email from my brother in the Lord---Guy DeMars and his family---I'd give my life for Guy!! They are SBC missionaries in Ivory Coast---and have been ordered to evacuate the city they live in--Abijan---they will be forced to move to a country called Togo---this is Guy's third move in less than 2years because of the civil war in Ivory Coast!!
