Hi Reed - I see you just left a comment for someone an hour ago so now I am not worried.
Lovely day here today. Nothing going on. I saw a teenage bunny in the yard. Tomorrow I go to the podiatrist, but my dr has left the practice so I'll be seeing someone new.

Hi Reed!

I'm glad you are doing good, so you doing exercise with those "girls"? :) oh I think you mentioned something about knees? what do you guys do?
I do need to do more exercise, it's really hard for me you know? I dont have the discipline :(

The b-day party was sooo cute!! It was alot of fun!

Yes K can do the repares to the car. ur like me I can't do anything besides check the oil & put the gas in it! LOL!

We're under a freeze advisory tonight. I guess that means I'll have to go out there and cover up my little tomato plants. I just set them out like on Thrusday and then after our rain on Friday the temps started getting colder again and now we got the Freeze advisory out and we have to watch for frost in the morning. Good for Russ!!

Hi Mr Gator. I am doing fine. I had my Dr appointment this morning. My A1C was 5.5 not too bad but of course could be better. I will work on some carbs over the next three months and see what I can cut out without too drastic a change. I am waiting on some other tests but the Dr was very happy with my blood pressure and that I am still loosing weight. Weather is Sunny. I got rid of the dumpster this morning. Hope your weather drys up. I think I will go to morning mass tommorow. Pauly

Hi my friend. I had such a very nice day today. It is still a bit cool. I think that glass o wine helped me sleep. I had a very lucid dream about my paternal grandfather. He was talking to me but now I forgot what he said.
Had an excellent workout at the Y. When I came in one of the trainers was running up to the front desk and yelled "call 911" and send them to the men's lockerroom." The treadmill I got on looks out onto the street and I saw when the ambulance got there. Then about a half hour later they left with an empty stretcher. I guess it was a false alarm.
Came home and had some baby potatoes with rosemary and a pork tenderloin and cauliflower. Very yummy. When I was working I never prepared ull meals for mysel, but now I enjoy it.
Have a good week ahead.

Thank you for the welcome!
My insurance Medicaid ends at the end of this month. No insurance = no endo. Not with my small pay checks. I'm sure I'll find something on here.

Thank You

Hi Reed- We finally got the rain they promised us for 3 weeks. It is supposed to get really heavy tonight. My BG this AM was the same as yours 102. Went to bed with a 101. The lawn and trees will get a good soaking, they really need it. I got new glasses yesterday, and I am trying to get used to them. They are bi-focals. I never had them before. I wore contact lenses for 40 years when I was working in a lab. Hope you have a great week. cat

Hi Mr Gator. Went to early 7:30 mass today. I went prior to mass and prayed the Rosary with the group thats always there. Fr Jim presided. He is the elderly priest but very nice. Overcast and cloudy. Sounds like you had rain but now you have a sunny day.

Hi Seagator! Thank you for the warm welcome! Yes Taunton is the Silver City. i have lived here for the majority of my life. My family moved to Taunton when I was 1 1/2 years old. so pretty much my whole life. :) thank you for making me feel welcome!

Oh Reed how on earth could the dry cleaners lose your tablecloth? Hopefully it will show up - maybe it just got shoved in the wrong sack or something.
Glad you got the gift card for the bad ham. Most places want their customer to be happy.
If we were neighbors, I'd be your personal seamstress and you could be my personal chef. We'd both come out ahead.
Tonight is prom night around here - lots of couples all gussied up. But it's only 42 degrees and those bare shouldered little girls look mighty cold.
We had a good group dinner for Elaine's birthday. They brought her a free french fried ice cream but she had to show id and prove it was her birthday. I got coaxed into having a glass of wine - I seldom drink and could feel the effects immediately. I had planned to go to the Y after the meal, but instead came right home and collapsed on the couch. I feel really sleepy so will probably just call it a night.

There will be an added person on the birthday roster for today, as there was a member there with 2 accounts...a Christina.
I've informed the powers that be, and if the added account is deleted today, it will make room for someone else!

Morning Reed :) You would not believe how tired I was yesterday...and still today. I was at school 'till 9:30 pm yesterday, due to the 25th anniversary celebrations...on my feet the whole time! By the end, I was running on auto-pilot! Some teacher wore high heels! Not me...wore flats and my feet were STILL in pain! The staff had a catered dinner before families started arriving. Would you believe that the whole ordeal caused me to drop 3 pounds!! I sure AM taking it easy today....started off with sleeping in 'till 8:30!!
I had hoped my own kids would be able to it was an event open to all past students (and staff)....but they had to be at the old house yesterday to finalize claiming their salvageable possessions...and the articles of clothing etc that the insurance company had cleaned/dry cleaned through a restoration company. So unfortunately, they were not at the school to participate in the festivities.

hi Reed, that sounds like a lumberjack's breakfast. Ed made us a pretty big one too, it will last me most of the day. I'm going to visit a friend of mine in the hospital today. sorry you missed the rain. we're supposed to get soaked tomorrow. yes, the lake is rather low, that's why ed had to rig up a filtering system for his pump/sprinkler system. my only question about your pork chops is where did you get the gravy. our shrimp tacos were very good. and then I had some popcorn while watching a movie, so it made my bg go into 200-land. took .5 insulin at bed, and woke up with 147. think I'm going to change my set today, as it's day 2 and it's starting to itch.

Hi Reed. Not much new here. I slept like a log.
Went downtown to do some banking and then to the Dollar Store
My friend Elaine just brought me over a lemon custard cupcake that her sister made for her birthday. The filling was just the right degree of tartness. Tomorrow we are going to the Thai restaurant for a b'day party. I will call ahead and see if they give a birthday person anything special. Most places do. Good for publicity.
Now they are talking about the Vikings football team leaving town, particularly if they don't get a new stadium. Way too much fuss if you ask me. Minn Twins won 2 out of four games against the Yankees this week, which was a big deal. I am going to try to go to a home game this summer. Hot dogs and a glass of pop cost $6 each. I suppose I could shove a bunch of carrot sticks and apple slices in my backpack.....
