Marie, it was so funny - I listen to this home and garden show on the radio every Sunday and they were talking about hummingbirds. I had read on your comment to Reed that yours drank 2 qt of nectar. They interviewed this lady who feeds 12 quarts per day in her back yard. They are beefing up to head south. Most of the hummers from Mn winter in south Texas or Costa Rica. I simply cannot imagine something that weighs 3 grams flying all that way - just how many wng flaps does that add up to?
Good Morning, Marie. We are having a terrible storm with hail. I had a very good night. It must have been the relief. BG 109. How was your night? Readings? I have not had a hot flash yet LOL. Going grocery shopping but will wait to see if it clears up. Tom has been a great help. He has the Reading tomorrow. I do not get another shot until Nov 21.When I read folks cannot afford test strips lancets insylin...what di you tell then. I tell them to look at FREE STUFF. With Obamacare they might get covered. Lotto $52 million. If I win I will send you some. My best to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,POPS
Oh Marie I'm so pleased for Reed. How great. And, if I lived in NJ I'd track down that bunny and kidnap him for my own. I have a knitting friend who spins her own yarn out of dog fur - boy would she love to get her hands on those rabbit tresses. Now I really really want to go to our fair, but we're supposed to have a hot spell next week, just in time for the start.
Also, loved that pic of you and the little baker-kids.
Have a nice weekend.
Good Morning to you Marie. I cannot see out of some of the windows moisture which means HUMID> Tom is here. He will go with me tomorrow. My appointment is 9:30. I can handle the prostate cancer as that will be treated with a hormone shot every 3 months. If the cancer has spread to my bones that will mean spot radiation. Trying to keep my head clear.TOPS went well but I did not like losing 3 1/4 pounds. I bought a loaf of homemade Rosemary bread $2.25 it was excellent. BG 112 STRESS. How are things with you? We had heavy thunder and lightning but not a drop of rain.Give my best to Ed. I will be so happy when tomorrow is over. Take good care. I was thinking last night who taught Marie how to bake your Mother? Or on your own. I wish I lived nearer to get a loaf. Take good care. HUGS, Reed
Hood Morning, Marie. It is HUMID all ready. I woke at 5 I heard the TV Russ was up. I heard wayer. Good it is raining. Nope he forgot to shut the faucet off in his sink. My BG 102. How was yours? Those were young kids to win prizes. Good for them. TOPS this morning. I do the Program ugh. Tom comes tonight;. He will work at Govt House Thursday and take Friday off so he can go the urologist with me. Try as I might I cannot get things out of my hed. I have him telling me I have 9 months to live. It is odd what your month does t you. How is Ed? Give him my best. I hope I can instill some information in my ladies. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie-I haven't been on too many times recently, basically too tired and depressed about failing to pass the swallow test. I am eating some thick foods like Greek yogurt and apple sauce and scrambled eggs. I just go out for doctors appts or to lab to get blood tests, My a1c is a disgusting 7.5 from all of the times it was 300-400 while in the hosp. and the rehab. I am trying to get my sugars under control. I see you won some prizes at the fair. Congrats to you. My PD meds aren't working so good anymore and my balance and energy levels are poor. I hope all is well with you and Ed. Take care. Cat-Susan

Hello Marie. Very slow today. Been busy watching the trucks ripping up the roads. They are cutting away old asphalt and putting down new..all the big trucks parked near my driveway so I could not get out. They told us ahead of time they would be doing it today. I slept until 8:30. My BG 106. TOPS Wed and I do the Program. I also starting collecting $1. If they gain I get a $1 or they bring a dish for our picnic 9/18. This waiting is terrible. Friday cannot get her fast enough. All in all would you say the Fair was a success? BG 106. How was yours? They say we will be in the triple digits the rest of the week. I read watch TV clean anything to keep my mind clear. Give my best to Ed. Take good care. hugs,POPS
Hi Marie. Thanks for your nice comments re my cousin. My sister decided it was too long a drive to go to the funeral, but I had a long chat with his mother a couple of nights ago. We spent most of it crying. Congratulations on your prizes at the state fair. Ours does not start until the 22nd and ends on Labor Day. I am planning to go, except if it's too hot. I like to see everything, from the animalss to the machinery to the 4-H and fine arts and always end up collecting a bunch of pamphlets and carrying them around all day. Hope you are having a good day.
Good Morning, Marie. I was awake untik 2 then slept until 7:30. Tom went running in this heat and humidity. BG 106. Are they getting big crowds at the fair? You sure are a dedicated volunteer. Glad you won prizes. After being judged can you sell the products. I wonder what has happened to Kathy. I hope it is her computer and not her, I have a big grocery shopping list. Florida Lotto 50 million. Hope I win. Take good care. August 16 hurry up and get here. HUGS, Reed

By then he should have results of Cat scan bone scan and 22 x-rays...they even did my mouth. I just hope and pray the cancer did not enter my bones. Thank God for Tom. He pushed me in a wheelchair for like a mile. BG 110. No rain Hot and Humid. Glad you won and your baked goods sold out. Staying close to home today. I am tired. Big shopping tomorrow out of everything. Give my best to Ed. Take good care and enjoy your day. HUGS, Reed
