Boy...I gave Tom a huge shopping list. We went to Hammock for the ride. Then it started to thunder and rain. Nothing like yesterday we had the effects of Arthur. I thought the roof was going to blow off. I never saw such rain. I am feeling great. Get tired easily. I can walk a little without the walker but I am not going to overdo it. I now know a broken hip takes over 3 months to get you back where you were. I had a good night. How are things with you. I hope fine. Give my bes to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Marie-I am glad you got the box. I hope it came in good condition. I may be able to send you more Fastclix in a few months. I tend to forget to change the drum. There are so many settings to use before the lancets get dull. If I didn't tell you we plan to move Aug. 5. It will be here before we know it. There are still so many things to pack. We did give away lots of stuff to a local charity thrift shop. Also a young couple that we know just bought a house and can use anything. They are taking some furniture that we won't be using. Our 2 cats will have the 2nd bedroom. We are boarding them for 2 nights when we do move. I don't want them involved with the moving company. Hope you and Ed have a nice weekend. Happy 4th !! Cat

Hello Marie. I was tired but I had one of those nights. Even with sleeping pill I was awake all night. Some time today I am going to try and get out of the WC and use my own walker. I only have 4 sessions of therapy left. Tom says it is 112 in Vegas. Russ seems to be dpoing better but his feet swoolen. The lung doctor wants him to see a heart doctor. We have a call in to Dr. George. It is too hot to do anythingl. Does Ed work today? Give him my best. How are things with you? I hope ok. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Tom in Las Vegas for a conference. He gives a presentation this morning. How is Ed? Give him my best. Tom said it is soooo hot in Vegas. 90;s here and a shower in the afternoon. Take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie. I usually keep Udi's white sandwich bread (available in most big grocery store freezers) in my freezer. It is both gluten- and lactose-free, and it toasts well and tastes pretty good.

Yesterday I tried a box mix, King Arthur Four's glutenfree bread & pizza crust mix. It makes one loaf; you add 4 Tbl butter or oil, 1 3/4 cup milk, and 3 large eggs. Glutenfree flours pick up taste very well, so I thought this tasted very good (like eggs), had good texture, and toasts well. If lactose is not a problem, I would recommend it.

My husband is my (good) critic as well, is NOT gf and likes wheat, and thought this King Arthur loaf was pretty good--he doesn't care much for Udi's white sandwich bread. However, Ginger Viera wrote that she likes the Udi's very much!

Back when I was using my bread machine, I made Pamela's bread and like it pretty well--it's been too long to remember much about it, but I remember liking it. Might haul that bread machine out again one of these days!

Marie, thanks for the kind well wishes. I do feel better today. One good thing about an RA flare is that they do subside eventually. Well at least they always have in the past and hopefully it will always will.....rick

Hi Marie. We had an 82 degree summer day, but for some reason I decided to bake. How on earth do you do all your bred baking in the summer?!!! I wasn't baking from scratch, but I tried out King Arthur's box of GF bread mix, and I thought it was pretty good. Also made some brownies. Having sampled all my wares, I've been shooting up ever since! Hope you're having a good summer.

Hi Marie,
Thanks for the nice greeting!
Yes that's my Joslin Medal which I received a few months ago...I'll complete 59 years on 9/3 so in reality I believe I'll be getting the 60 year version in 2015..assuming I'm still alive and kicking and being the same ole DIA-BAD-ASS I've always been ;-)
