well I've been depressed and no motivation, so I've spent most of today on the computer. went to Home Depot. Ed's got this pump and he's been pumping water out of the lake to water the lawn. he wanted to get a filter or a strainer to keeep all the little fish and stuff from getting sucked up and clogging the thing, so we are looking for something in various areas of the store....WHY don't you ASK someone to help??? I finally got someone who seemed interested in figuring out something, and so we ended up spending 2 dollars and everyone's happy. drives me crazy when they don't ask for help, it made the guy at Home Depot feel good and we saved a lot of money. anyway, think I'm going downstairs to sew a bit and then take a walk, nice day here, UI feel sad about Levon Helm, drummer for The Band, just died. gosh I loved his music sooooo much.

Hello Doris. I am all messed up. I had to fast have blood drawn came home tested BG 104 did a few things. At 10 I sat on the red couch here in the Library to read the paper. The next thing I knew it was 12. 2 hours sleeping sitting up. I know you saw the doctor what did he say? You healing well? Can you do more? How about Ken? I hope he is fine. I see a new Primary Care doctor Tuesday...Dr. Ashfaq Kudia I hope I like him. All foreign doctors here.This it the driest Florida in 91 years. We are desperate for rain. Have a good day and my best to you and Ken. HUGS,Reed

OMG right? It was a cheistry experiment - so many drops of urine, add an acetone tab - fizz away! And it stank! :P

It's my first initial and a creative spelling of my last name minus a letter. When I worked at Intel my id was my first initial and last name up to 8 characters, and my buddy started calling me scarleto. :-)
