12:43 am
Bugsaw

Jilli do you have someone to bring you groceries if you need it. You should not be shovelling
12:44 am
MayneGuy

hi jilli, back again. not going to get addicted this time.
12:44 am
jillibus

Bugs, I have great neighbours and Drew likes shovelling snow! But I'm hoping the rain will wash it away in a day or two.
12:44 am
Bugsaw

12:45 am

1:46 am
puglet

she wrote me after you sent her a note but thanks for the imfo Rose
1:47 am
grannyrose

when i heard, flosey, she was having a bit of a battle, so to speak. she was 'hosting' a sleep-over for her daughter's birthday.
1:48 am
flosey

oh, how well I remember those days - and things haven't changes - this weekend daughter brought 4 friends over - they're in their 40s now (or thereabouts)
1:49 am
grannyrose

* giggle * and you survived, flosey.
1:50 am
flosey

lol we did indeed - they did the cooking and cleanup
1:50 am
puglet

sounds like a fun time for you flosey
1:51 am
grannyrose

good, flosey. you brought her up correctly, then.
1:51 am
flosey

it was, and I do enjoy meeting her friends
1:51 am
zoozzoom

I think it would be easier to manage adult people on sleep overs..teenagers would be a different thing altogether..nightmare..lol
1:51 am
flosey

oh yes, they are zooz
1:51 am
puglet

rose, were there alot in your group at the pool
1:53 am
o-o

phantom: comiconomenclaturist
1:53 am
grannyrose

hmmm, i think 7, pugs. and it was my own physio who was running the group. which was good, as she knew what i was able to do.
1:54 am
grannyrose

g'day o-o
1:55 am
flosey

hi there o-o, that is quite a word, would have a pretty high point count
1:55 am
puglet

Morning OO
1:55 am
grannyrose

nice to see you don't take offense at my sick sense of humour...or do you?
1:56 am
zoozzoom

Funny names i think the DEF is saying....Hello o-o :-)
1:57 am
puglet

its a huge word and I looked it up and I still dont understand the meaning of it, OO
1:59 am
zoozzoom

How often do you have to do the hydro pool, Rose twice a week?
1:59 am
grannyrose

how about some one who is knowledgeable about names which are funny.
1:59 am
o-o

One who collects funny names
2:00 am
puglet

thank you for the meaning
2:00 am
grannyrose

yeah, zooz, mondays and fridays. which gives me a day to recover, and a day to hop on my bike so to speak...lolol
2:01 am
puglet

I bet the pool felt nice though, didnt it Rose
2:01 am
zoozzoom

Teehee..well it is good for you in the long run so maybe the bike will not be out of the question at some point :-)
2:02 am
grannyrose

oh, yes, pugs. it was lovely. in the water, you don't experience the usual forces of gravity.
2:03 am
puglet

did you dance and do handstands? lol
2:04 am
grannyrose

have any of you seen the news re fires in one of our brown coal sites? apparently, they were lit by a very sick person, on a trail bike. i wouldn't want to be that person when the authorities catch up with them.
2:04 am
zoozzoom

Not heard of that, Rose, No...stupid person/s
2:04 am
grannyrose

google hazelwood fires. it's a disgrace!!
2:04 am
puglet

it hasent shown that over here but thats awful
2:05 am
zoozzoom

will do.
2:05 am
flosey

don't think any papers made it over to the island today
2:05 am
grannyrose

the smoke is affecting a nearby town terribly.
2:05 am
puglet

flosey did you get ice too or just snow
2:06 am
flosey

that must be very scary rose
2:06 am
flosey

it was pretty wet snow, so heavy when trees were loaded - crashing over hydro wires, and such
2:07 am
grannyrose

flosey, when it affects children, babies, and the defenseless elderly....it is sick in the extreme.
2:07 am
puglet

I thought that maybe ice knocked out your power
2:08 am
flosey

the houses near the hospital are on the same grid, so they were protected
2:09 am
grannyrose

but in the meantime, you still have power so that is good, hun. hope you aren't marooned for too long.
2:09 am
puglet

I dont understand why people wants to do so many mean things that hurts others
2:09 am
flosey

no, pugs, it was trees over the wires - and hubby had to go out and cut through 8 8- 10" trunk of tree that fell across the bridge in our driveway
2:09 am
zoozzoom

Read parts of the report, Rose, fire started in a place called Driffield i think.
2:10 am
grannyrose

yeah, zooz
2:10 am
puglet

several years ago some teenagers burnt down one of our covered bridges and due to the cost it was never replaced
2:10 am
flosey

omit one 8 there
2:10 am
grannyrose

pugs, dear, i can't understand it either.
2:13 am
flosey

covered bridges are so quaint and beautiful
2:14 am
grannyrose

have you seen the film, bridges of madison country? clint eastwood and meryl streep.
2:15 am
flosey

yes, I enjoyed that movie
2:15 am
grannyrose

the book reduced me to tears.
2:15 am
puglet

I know and the craftmanship in them is so neat---I have one thats next to my campgrounds and its was built in the late 1800's
2:15 am
flosey

I like Meryl streep - clint eastwood not hard to look at either
2:16 am
zoozzoom

testing
2:16 am
flosey

never read the book, should get it out - right now reading "I am Malalala" girl who was shot by the Taliban
2:16 am
puglet

testing for what Zoom
2:17 am
flosey

and lived to write her story
2:17 am
zoozzoom

Sorry about that my babble froze for some reason.
2:17 am
puglet

shes a strong girl, isnt she flosey
2:17 am
flosey

amazing
2:18 am
flosey

I couldn't write like that now, let alone when I was her age
2:18 am
flosey

but some of these countries are almost as small as some provinces or states
2:19 am
puglet

and shes still going on after all that---havent read her story but have seen interviews of her
2:20 am
flosey

yes, and she speaks well in these groups, and on tv
2:20 am
grannyrose

flosey, me too!! love meryl streep, and clint eastwood is certainly good eye-candy.
2:20 am
flosey

yes, rose, not bad eh!
2:21 am
grannyrose

malalala is certainly an inspiration to all her fellow woman. she is so brave.
2:21 am
flosey

for sure
2:21 am
puglet

like when he was in rawhide, maybe--lol
2:21 am
grannyrose

zooz?? you are coming in loud and clear.
2:22 am
flosey

welcome back zooz
2:22 am
zoozzoom

I am flabbergasted at how some people can say we will make it law that girls/woman can not go to school to learn. Not allowed to listen to music etc
2:22 am
grannyrose

even now, pugs. he has never tried to hide the aging process. i really admire him for that.
2:22 am
zoozzoom

Yes thanks i think it was this end that had the glitch..not sure what it was though.
2:24 am
flosey

afraid I must get to bed, falling asleep right here, goodnight all, hope you are able to finish - I have 20 words for tomorrow morning
2:24 am
grannyrose

it's a different culture, zooz. but this young woman is going to change that. i pray for her protection everyday.
2:24 am
grannyrose

xoxox, flosey. hope you sleep well, hun
2:24 am
zoozzoom

Have a great sleep, Flosey :-)
2:24 am
puglet

good night Flosey, GB and take care
2:24 am
flosey

her courage is amazing for that age
2:26 am
puglet

I wish young girls would look to her as a role model then someone like that Milley Cyrus
2:28 am
zoozzoom

Ok i might surprise some people here..but i had never heard of Miley cyrus until she did some type of erotic dance and it was on the news.
2:29 am
puglet

well in my opion you are not missing much, Zoom
2:29 am
zoozzoom

Teehee well thats good to know, Pugs :-)
2:30 am
zoozzoom

that's*
2:31 am
puglet

what really gets me is the parents taking their young kids to her show knowing how she acts,dress and so on
2:32 am
zoozzoom

Ok what she did is not being a good role model for young girls agreed...but why spread it all over the news..so more peope can see what she has done..more people clicked online to see what she had done...giving more publicity to her and exposing even more young people to that type of behaviour that was being condoned...does not make sense..lol
2:33 am
zoozzoom

I bet her agents were loving it..money money money(abba song) comes into my mind at this point..lol
2:34 am
puglet

so very true, Zoom and I feel about the same towards that Justin Beiver--maybe Iam just too old fashion
2:35 am
zoozzoom

yes i am not a belieber either..lol
2:36 am
zoozzoom

No i am not a belieber either..sounds better :-)
2:37 am
o-o

as the population increases, so does the need for resources ... people without will be fighting those who do. Hawking said that the only way for humanity to continue to survive is for us to ultimately begin populating other planets because the Earth will not last forever.
2:37 am
puglet

I understood you completely--lol-----you should see how my sister write--its like a lang. all her own--lol
2:38 am
zoozzoom

like text speak..my sister does that too...lol
2:38 am
sprite

good morning all
2:39 am
zoozzoom

Well we will need to take over another planet at some point, o-o, as this planet will be dead by the time we have finished with it.
2:39 am
puglet

Oh HUGS Sprite ==so good to see you back

2:45 am
puglet

2:46 am
lynxxx

2:46 am
sprite

no, just the one night, pug. They are doing the dishes they used now, and then will do breakfast and more giggling, and after that they will go home.
2:46 am
puglet

dont you think Zoom should have at least one experment of such a party Sprite--lol
2:46 am
sprite

apart from the marmite, I am right with you, zooz, lol
2:46 am
sprite

only if he can giggle, pug!
2:46 am
o-o

marmite and a bit of aggregate will do wonders in a pothole.
2:47 am
zoozzoom

I LOVE marmite, Lynxxx i eat it everyday..i am trulley happy with that..lol sad i know but hey ho :-)
2:47 am
lynxxx

2:49 am
zoozzoom

It might be called vegi-mite where you are, Pugs.
2:49 am
o-o

Albert Tucker
2:49 am
grannyrose

pugs, will send you a small pot of each..do not, repeat, do not use it like chocolate spread.
2:49 am
puglet

never have heard or seen that either
2:49 am
zoozzoom

The advert says "you either love it or hate it" so true..lol
2:50 am
sprite

it is very salty, pug.
2:50 am
lynxxx

aha - maybe I recognised that great Australian talent
2:50 am
zoozzoom

No spread very very small amounts on or it will be too over powering.
2:50 am
puglet

well Iam not a big salt fan
2:51 am
o-o

I just think both should be sold commercially to road crews.
2:51 am
grannyrose

my brother was only a toddler when my mother allowed him access to a pot of vegemite. when she looked back on him to check, he had piled the entire jar on his toast...very neatly, i might add.
2:51 am
zoozzoom

Well it does not just taste of salt, Pugs, it has yeast too!
2:51 am
zoozzoom

hey will you guys stop knocking the wonderful marmite :-)
2:52 am
sprite

smart brother, rose, lol
2:52 am
sprite

my mother loved the stuff too. I don't.
2:52 am
o-o

the yeast is what improves the quality of pothole repairs
2:52 am
zoozzoom

oh wow, Rose..hope he did not eat that..his blood pressure would of gone through the roof..yikes!
2:53 am
grannyrose

i use a teaspoonful in a mug of hot water as something to sip if i am feeling off-colour.
2:53 am
zoozzoom

LOL o-o you are funny.
2:53 am
puglet

LOL--OO
2:53 am
grannyrose

*giggle* o-o
2:54 am
lynxxx

Vegemite was created out of left-over brewers yeast - no wonder it was invented in Australia
2:54 am
puglet

sounds like some pretty strong stuff to me
2:54 am
grannyrose

marmite is the little sister to vegemite.....lol
2:55 am
zoozzoom

It is lovely on omelets too!
2:55 am
o-o

I tried some vegemite and needed a pry bar to open my mouth.
2:55 am
zoozzoom

and chees on toast.
2:55 am
lynxxx

stop it Zooz
2:55 am
grannyrose

which? marmite or vegemite?
2:56 am
zoozzoom

hahaha o-o
2:56 am
zoozzoom

Marmite, Rose the one and only..no substitutes will do.
2:56 am
grannyrose

ooh, zooz. i am drooling here. ...lol o-o. poor man. please allow me to educate you...
2:57 am
grannyrose

whimp, zooz...when you have used vegemite....then you can talk...lol
2:57 am
zoozzoom

Teehee :-)
2:58 am
puglet

if you got to pry open your mouth after eating it then how can you even talk--lol

2:58 am
sprite

lol o-o!
2:59 am
grannyrose

roflol, o-o...
2:59 am
zoozzoom

Hey that just might work you know..lol
2:59 am
puglet

maybe I could use some of that to pull out my bad tooth-lol
3:00 am
grannyrose

better yet, put it on the bad tooth, pugs
3:00 am
sprite

might help against invading aliens as well. One bite and they'll be off back to their planet, exceeding speed of light... saying "They don't have anything we need!"
3:00 am
grannyrose

will probably heal it....
3:01 am
puglet

and what? will it eat it out then?
3:01 am
zoozzoom

Nah what you need is a big wad of really tough sticky toffee and chomp down on it and up quickly..that might get the baddy out..lol
3:01 am
grannyrose

lolol...you two are incredible...
3:02 am
grannyrose

pugs, did you get/have some oil of cloves?
3:02 am

I got cloves but not oil of cloves
3:02 am
sprite

3:03 am
puglet

my tooth isnt hurting right now and the swelling is gone
3:04 am
grannyrose

dinner on the way. slow-roasted leg of lamb, gravy with red wine and mint jelly, roast vegetables (potatoes and pumpkin), and a heap of carrots and beans. i have died and gone to heaven.
3:04 am
sprite

that is awesome, pug
3:04 am
zoozzoom

Putting a clove in the mouth on the tooth i think will only succeed in making your side of the mouth numb and taste nasty as it is very strong..will not stop tooth pain..in my opinion.
3:04 am
sprite

oh wow rose, that sounds so good
3:05 am
puglet

sounds good Rose--enjoy
3:05 am
sprite

it is the numbing effect that helps against the pain, zooz.
3:05 am
zoozzoom

Oh my that sounds so devine..i really am drooling here.
3:05 am
grannyrose

pugs, the next time you are in town, please check out oil of cloves. it simply is a must in everyone's medicine cupboard.
3:05 am
puglet

my teeth dont rot but get loose in the gum
3:06 am
puglet

okay Rose, will do--is it like camphor oil
3:06 am
zoozzoom

If your gum was swollen you might have a tooth abscess.
3:06 am
grannyrose

no dear...your local chemist/pharmicist is sure to have it in stock.
3:07 am
puglet

okay Rose

3:08 am

3:25 am
sprite

hi rose, lol, glad you enjoyed that heavenly meal
3:25 am
puglet

the reason I asked Sprite is here they have eye clinics in them and they are cheaper then going to a regular eye doctor and Iam needing glasses bad and was wondering if the quality would be just as good
3:25 am
grannyrose

potatoes crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, pumkin singed to a dark brown. gravy deserves a medal of some kind....
3:25 am
puglet

nice Rose
3:25 am
sprite

sorry, can't help you there :)
3:26 am
sprite

that was supposed to be a sad face :(
3:26 am
zoozzoom

Do you have a tesco, Pugs, they have eye clinics too and they are supposed to be good as well.
3:26 am
grannyrose

pugs, i think any clinic which van help you, would be a plus, hun.
3:27 am
puglet

Ive never eaten pumkin except in a pie or bread
3:27 am
grannyrose

*can*
3:27 am
puglet

no Zoom we dont
3:27 am
zoozzoom

It would not hurt to go in and see what they offer, Pugs, you can always so no if you are not happy with what they offer?
3:27 am
grannyrose

yeah, pugs. at lot of people have not eaten it, as a vegetable in it's own right.
3:28 am
puglet

I think I will then Rose--and Zoom. I did check in on them and they are half as cheap as going to the regular eye doctor office
3:30 am
grannyrose

pugs, i am sure that they are governed by a government policy. anything would be better than you squinting or rubbing your eyes to see better.
3:30 am
puglet

does it taste like pumkin fixed that way Rose
3:30 am
zoozzoom

Ditto on that, Rose.
3:31 am
zoozzoom

Oh great it is tipping down again here.
3:31 am
puglet

I have dime store reading glasses but cant use them for like the computer and stuff is a blurr
3:31 am
grannyrose

not really, pugs. you must be careful, just roast it, or fry it until it turns a deep brown.
3:32 am
puglet

I may just try that Rose, since I raise them every year
3:32 am
grannyrose

*hands zooz an umbrella* off you go, mate...walkies!!!
3:32 am

mimi and crossy - think I know why we were seeing different things on Jigidi the other day. Used as different browser (IE) and saw different puzzlers than on Firefox. Don't know thsat would be but it is
6:47 am

interesting that the browser used would alter the puzzles seen, but anything is possible when you toss I.E into the mix
6:48 am
wvteach

need to get ready to go play music for the morning - BBL
6:49 am
MimiCat

Glad that mystery is solved, teach. Go play and be happy...nothing better than music to start the day!

never use IE but Firefox was sending weird mesages and puzzles woud freeze up, so tried it and got completely different puzzles

6:52 am
crosshair

if so, why am I not making a zillion dollars?
6:53 am
MimiCat

Because you must be an original for that, my dear...not like anyone else. I'm hoping when I'm done my book will be published and I will have found my voice.
6:54 am
crosshair

of course you are correct, mimi. SK does not need a parrot
6:55 am
MimiCat

I wouldn't have thought of you being like him...more like a poet.
6:55 am
crosshair

6:55 am
MimiCat

But, of course, I've never read any of your writing.

7:11 am
MimiCat

Apparently I'm like Jane Austen...not sure how I feel about that. But if I choose a different style of my own writing, am sure it will pick differently...will try it out.
7:12 am
crosshair

it is s fun little thing to plug your prose into
7:12 am
MimiCat

Yep--now I'm like J.D. Salinger!

7:24 am

7:24 am
MimiCat

LOL on my way out to Whoville....
7:24 am
crosshair

i tend to have that effect, RB
7:24 am
RoundBarn

maybe Seuss writes like Hemingway--tho H doesn't usually rhyme--
7:25 am
crosshair

wonder if Hemmingway likes green eggs?
7:25 am
RoundBarn

I
7:25 am
MimiCat

Considering Hemingway's real lifestyle and Seuss' writing style...maybe they both drink heavily!
7:26 am
RoundBarn

ve noticed, Crossy--it's a major reason I tune in here, mornings. Tho I lack creative breakfasts
7:26 am
crosshair

hard to picture the good Dr. halfway through green eggs and dashing a decanter of whiskey against the wall in a drunken rage
7:27 am
RoundBarn

see, you've started my day right, crossy--I'm laughing
7:27 am

You'll be fine! The instincts will kick in and you will be so happy. My daughter said to me, just before she had her baby girl - "Mom, what if I don't love her?" I just chuckled to myself. She is a wonderful mother and her little one is the center or their lives!

9:48 am
mael

thanks judi
9:48 am
trentsnana

Very normal feelings. And what's funny - after you have one, you wonder how you could love the next one as much (if you have another) and I had three and loved them all so much.

9:53 am
mael

np wolvie, I tried it and it stuck!
9:53 am
Judi

So true, MKG. I think the correct term would be "free range" di4.
9:54 am
Wolvie

9:54 am
Judi

Six left. Does anyone have a clue for those Q's I'm looking for?
9:55 am
mkg

i have all qs done. which ones judi?
9:55 am
mkg

qu 4 is first one.
9:56 am
mkg

then qu and two vowels and cons and vowel and weird word i never saw before.
9:56 am
mkg

then plural that for the 7
9:56 am
mkg

then qu 4 again
9:56 am
mkg

then what we used to call gay people and plural.
9:56 am
mkg

then another 4.
9:56 am
mkg

then another 4.
9:56 am
mkg

the 4s are common words.
9:56 am
mkg

one means four
9:57 am
mkg

one refers to sharp words
9:58 am
mkg

i did q words first. need 51 more words but did q's first
9:58 am
Judi

Gah! TMI! I need qu6/27 and 7/40 combo.
9:58 am
mkg

9:59 am
mkg

judi,
9:59 am
trentsnana

Judi- the two q's you need sound like a shape, without the "s" at the beginning
9:59 am
mkg

judi those are weird words i never saw before. qu and then
9:59 am
Judi

Ah. Ty. Knew it was something weird like that.
9:59 am
mkg

a box with all sides even is a squ***. leave the s off.
9:59 am
trentsnana

e + pretty flower
10:00 am
mkg

and add an extra vowel to the qu before the final cons.
10:00 am
mkg

trust me it is not a real word
10:00 am
trentsnana

and then take the vowel off of the end
10:00 am
MollyL

Hi TNana. You're going to visit cutie pie, you must be so excited : )
10:00 am

ty for e word. got it.
10:00 am
Judi

Ge5?
10:01 am
MollyL

Robot ending Judi
10:01 am
mkg

qu word is like the box with all even sides without the s and then slip in an extra vowel in the fifth position. the extra vowel makes it like the latin endings
10:02 am
mkg

robot ending? gee we have different words i guess.
10:02 am

trentsnana

Yes, Molly - I am very excited. She is something else. Almost 19 mos. old and speaking in sentences. We facetime a lot, but nothing beats being there!
10:03 am
mkg

take word for box with all sides even: squ. delete the s. then slip another vowel into 5th position, the second vowel. then add last two letters of the sq word. and that is the seven
10:03 am
trentsnana

mkg has been clueing the q for Judi and I think she got it a while ago
10:04 am

my sister's first husband was a mummy's boy. The marriage lasted 6 weeks in all including the honeymoon. When he left he took his mother's wedding present to them and left everything else behind. he came back about two weeks later, telling my sister that mummy had sent him back. red rag to a bull that one. I am sure you can guess what happened. Mind you she should have been warned when he didn't have a door key at the age of 40!

My son-in-law is definitely a mama's boy. I am amazed that my daughter has been married to him for three years. It's pretty sad. Mother-in-law tries to run things, my daughter gets upset, and son-in-law will not defend her to his mother.

A wife should not have to compete with Mom, or be put second to Mom. Men who have not outgrown their childish relationship with Mama are not mature enough to marry, in my opinion.

hmmm.. not sure.. but I do have my location info filled out.. not sure how to add a flag
4:45 pm
Soodle

And there was me thinking you were making a political statement! Lol. (I've just watched the entire second series of House of Cards in about 3 days..... I'm preoccupied with US politics!!!)
4:46 pm
lbuxx

oh no.. was just a statement about general disdain for the bieb..lol
4:46 pm
lbuxx

I have not watched House of Cards.. I'm assuming you liked?
4:46 pm
lbuxx

our politics leave a lot to be desired.
4:47 pm
Soodle

It's ( as you say over there) Awesome!
4:47 pm
lbuxx

I will have to take a look.. that's not the 1st time I've heard that.
4:48 pm
wvteach

check and see if there is a check mark in the box "show profile"
4:49 pm
Soodle

Well, I really enjoyed it. But, then, I've been actively seeking distraction from 'real life' recently. :-/
4:49 pm

Hiya Teach :-)

ta da! thanks teach
4:50 pm

Yay!!

can someone clue the GE5/16?
4:52 pm
MollyL

ge + robot ending
4:52 pm
Soodle

My trouble is.... I start watching a box set on Netflix, & I start living it!!! I'm currently looking for a convenient back to stab! When I was hooked on Breaking Bad, I was calling everybody 'Bitch'. And don't get me started on what I was like watching 'The Tudors'....
4:53 pm
JeeWhiz

Robot ending for ge5
4:53 pm
lbuxx

hahahahhaa.. that is too funny! breaking bad was great! and I liked the Tudors too but I don't think i finished the season..
4:55 pm
lbuxx

got it thanks! I sure was trying that but with an R in the middle.. too many letters though
4:55 pm

Crossy, during my Prison Break phase, I found myself narrowing my eyes & arching one eyebrow when I was speaking to people!
4:56 pm

well don't watch Walking Dead.. you'll start wanting to smash heads
4:56 pm
Soodle

Lol Ibuxx!! Who needs to watch Walking Dead!! Lol

I don't even drink the stuff, Bojazz.

Well ... it's cool, I like :)
5:00 pm

For a patriotic Irish woman, I very unpatriotically don't drink either Guinness or Irish whiskey.
5:02 pm
Soodle

So, I'm in a vacuum now that House of Cards is finished. Any suggestions for my next Netflix Fix?
5:02 pm

ok.. down to 3.. the 1st QU6 & QU7 and the SI5.. clues?
5:03 pm

Nurse Jackie, Shameless

alright.. those QU's were new to me..
5:05 pm

any hints on the SI?
5:05 pm

If you want to continue the American politics thing, The West Wing is a great series and very well written and acted.
5:05 pm
Soodle

First three letters of the qu4/8 & poetic word for before. And plural.
5:06 pm
lbuxx

i got those.. weird ones though
5:06 pm

If a castle is under attack, it could be under si 5/14...,

My Dad went into a Nursing Home yesterday. It was totally inevitable, absolutely essential, but none of that is stopping me feeling like I let him down. I think it was Haz said 'Growing old is not for the timid'. Meh
5:13 pm
MollyL

It's natural to feel that way. However, quite the contrary, you are making sure he gets the best care possible.
5:14 pm
MollyL

Bette Davis said it better. "Growing old is not for sissies"
: D
5:15 pm
lbuxx

thanks Soodle!
5:15 pm
lbuxx

and I agree with Molly 100%
5:16 pm
lbuxx

I'm outta here.. good night all
5:16 pm
MollyL

The elders who have been "let down" are the ones facing old age alone, because their kids will have nothing to do with them.
5:17 pm
torgone

There definitely comes a time when you can't be expected to provide the kind of care he needs
5:22 pm
phandmd

Hey, Molly, do you think :^P
5:23 pm
phandmd

where did the rest of my message go.
5:23 pm
Soodle

Thanks Molly, Tor & Ibuxx. My head is agreeing with you. My heart is breaking. Ah well. Theres always Netflix. :-P
5:25 pm
jaxx7

I overheard an old lady on the bus saying that if she'd have known how hard it was going to be growing old, she would have opted out!
5:26 pm
phandmd

I was asking if if you thought it would be too dangerous to cook dinner for my husband tomorrow. (it is is b-day) I mean I did cook for him last week. It might be too much for his heart. haha
5:27 pm
phandmd

Growing old is definitely not for the faint of heart!
5:29 pm
Soodle

Hmm! Growing old may not be for the faint of heart, but, I reckon it beats the alternative!!

hi all!
5:30 pm

I wouldn't chance it Phan, take him out.
: P
5:31 pm
Soodle

Ah, Sue. Nice to see you.
5:31 pm
uusue2

good to see you too, soodle!
5:31 pm
MollyL

We no longer live in a society that teaches us what to expect when caring for the elders. It's sad.
5:31 pm
jaxx7

There are a lot of folk in the cemetery who would agree with you
5:34 pm
MollyL

So many people are busy living their own lives, miles away from their aging parents that kids taking care of the elders has fallen by the wayside.
5:35 pm
uusue2

well, I tried to suggest to my dad that he move closer to us, but he's not moving anywhere. And I can't move closer to him either. So we email and phone, and I visit occasionally.
5:36 pm
ch1212

I was caregiver to both of my parents before they passed. I don't expect my daughter to have to take care of me because I'm already on 'borrowed time' -- that is, my parents, my siblings, and all grandparents died at average age of 57. I'm past that.
5:36 pm
Soodle

And you are adhering to his wishes Sue. Which is as it should be.
5:37 pm
Soodle

Are you guys still suffering from the bad weather?
5:37 pm
uusue2

I dread to think of what might happen if he's no longer able to manage on his own, though, soodle. But I figure we will cross that bridge when and if we come to it.
5:37 pm
uusue2

We are getting another blast of very cold air over the next few days, soodle - well below 0F, with wind chills in the -30F range
5:37 pm
ch1212

You will figure it out, uu. I was very lucky to be single and free to move at the time, but I know not everyone can do that.
5:38 pm
Soodle

Gee, ch1212, thats a bit stark.
5:39 pm
MollyL

No, not everyone can do that. It's one of the consequences of the societal change of mobility, being able to move out of the "town/village" you grew up in.
5:39 pm
ch1212

I guess it does sound that way, doesn't it? I've made my peace with the idea that it will probably be sooner than later, and I take care of my health as much as possible.
5:39 pm
uusue2

don't count on dying young just because it runs in your family, ch1212 - my dad's dad and all his brothers died in their 50s of heart attacks; my dad is still going strong at 92. So you never know!
5:40 pm
ch1212

True :)
5:41 pm
Jillyjill

Coming in at a good time. My 94 yr old mum lives at the end of a dirt road at the top of a mountain. None of her hired helpers can get into her place right now with snow, but she still doesn't see it as a problem
5:41 pm
ch1212

But speaking of, and I don't mean to sound morbid -- please put a note with your 'on my death' information to have a survivor log into Babble and let us know. I have such a note with my info, along with passwords and web accounts.
5:42 pm
uusue2

ah, that is a good idea, ch1212!
5:42 pm
Jillyjill

She is blind, deaf and requires a walker. We are hoping to get up there tomorrow.
5:42 pm
Soodle

Lol!! Good on ya, Sue! May I quote you, please? 'Don't count on dying young' is something that I might like to quote to various people.
5:43 pm
uusue2

sure, soodle! Quote away! :-)
5:43 pm
ch1212

Hoping you have 4-wheel drive, Jilly, but that's a given in your state :)
5:43 pm
MollyL

Oh Lord, the last thing I want my kids to have to do if I die is log into web sites and spread the gruesome news.
5:43 pm
Soodle

Oh, Jilly, that is a big worry, I'm sure.
5:44 pm
Jillyjill

Well, so do her caregivers, but with well over a foot of snow you also need ground clearance. Plus she lives on a private road that evitentally has run out of funds to pay for plowing;
5:45 pm
Jillyjill

*evidentally
5:46 pm
MollyL

Evitentally is when your tent is worn out and will no longer serve it's purpose. : )
5:46 pm
ch1212

Molly, if your Will appoints an executor, then that person can take care of it. To be honest, I found the task of calling people and emailing them to be helpful, because I felt so alone at the time, and reaching out to others who knew my mom helped.
5:46 pm
uusue2

fireworks!
5:47 pm
ch1212

ta da ta dah!!!! congrats uu!
5:47 pm
Jillyjill

Very well said ch1212. And from my om's perspective, it is very sad, she has outlived most of her friends and family. She just suddenly stops hearing from them; she figures they have died

Oh Good heavens above. I sounded 'needy' there!!!! Scratch my last post.....

she's right, though.

Hi soodle. Hi TO hope you are enjoying the season since in a month we should be all enjoying crocuses and primroses.
6:20 pm
72 Temple Owl

well, gmere, i don't htink enjoying is the word i'd use...but you are right, i can last a month. i think.

6:23 pm
72 Temple Owl

whoa!
6:23 pm

Mae culpa. You are right, Stid. 20 lashes for Soodle.
6:24 pm

Sorry, soodle. I'm becoming quite detail oriented. Perhaps I could give it up for Lent?
6:24 pm
MollyL

"A brave, solitary herald"...makes me want to play violin music : D
6:25 pm

I'll humm softly in the background.

Rofl, Stid. You were 100% right to correct me. A lesson learned.

sorry - no cat here - don't know what happened - just moved the laptop on to the table
6:29 pm
Trifioso

actually not really speaking at the moment, soodle, but other than that he's lovely
6:30 pm
Trifioso

we had a really stupid tiff and I am waiting for him to say sorry, which he will, and then all will be well, tra la la
6:30 pm
Trifioso

such in love
6:30 pm
Trifioso

is
6:30 pm
72 Temple Owl

valentine?*perks up ears*
6:31 pm
Soodle

Okaaaaay..... When you say 'not speaking' do you mean ' about him' or 'to him'
6:31 pm
Trifioso

valentine is in doghouse
6:31 pm
Soodle

Sugar. Tome lapse.
6:31 pm
Trifioso

not speaking to him. probably will in a couple of hours, but not right now
6:32 pm
MollyL

21, in Boston, on St. Patrick's Day...THAT is a trifecta!
6:32 pm
Trifioso

I know, right Molly? I read his GF the riot act, and instructed her not to leave his side for ONE SECOND
6:33 pm
MollyL

He will be fine. Damn, what a great way to celebrate 21.
6:34 pm
Trifioso

I just want him to be safe.
6:34 pm
Trifioso

its a tuesday night and he has class the next day, which is WICKED serious about, so I think it will be crazy, but not nuts
6:34 pm
MollyL

Is he usually an unsafe person?
6:35 pm
Trifioso

haha,no, actually, just the opposite. he is quite fastidious and an Eagle Scout to boot, so he is usually the one people turn to for advice on things
6:36 pm
Soodle

Ok. Trif. I only know you from Babble & Facebook & the odd email. But, I sense very good stuff with you & Valentine. I envy you. If it's good between you, embrace & enjoy it. If it's not good, let it go.
6:36 pm
MollyL

Okay then quit with the Irish Mother worry thing and just celebrate his day.
6:36 pm
Soodle

There! The Oracle has spoken!
6:37 pm
MollyL

*Not even remotely close to an oracle*
6:37 pm

Shit. My cover's blown.
6:38 pm
MollyL

No, I meant me.
6:39 pm
Soodle

lol, Molly. Time lag..
6:40 pm
MollyL

As far as Valentine is concerned, Trif seems pretty tolerant to me, so if VBoy is in the doghouse, I'm guessing he belongs there.
6:40 pm
Trifioso

oh, soodle, how lovely! We are going to be just fine. He stepped in it, he knows it, and he is sorry. But I have the red hair thing going on, and my temper got the better of me, and I completely blew up at him, and needed some time to cool off. No worries. He is an answer to prayers I didn't even know I was praying. He's the love of my life. I don't know if he is in for as long a haul as I think we are in for, but in in.
6:41 pm
MollyL

*Puts on Carpenters music*
6:41 pm
72 Temple Owl

that is lovely, trif. i am happy for you.
6:41 pm
Soodle

Jaysus, Molly, theres hope for us old spinsters yet!!!!
6:41 pm
Trifioso

I'm just hoping he learns from this. When a VERY nice lady risks her neck to drive over to his house on a very snowy night, to make him dinner to celebrate his promotion, he had better NOT thank me by saying "wow, this looks great Mia!" (that's his ex).
6:42 pm
MollyL

Yep, he belongs in the doghouse.
6:42 pm
Trifioso

thanks molly.
6:42 pm
Soodle

That awkward moment.....
6:43 pm
Trifioso

oh, he SO KNEW. The minute it was out of his mouth he turned to his housemate and said, "Oh god. I'm dead."
6:44 pm

How long have you two been together?
6:45 pm

You guys are so funny. Hello, everyone! Just popping in for a minute....martini in hand.
6:45 pm

Trif, the poor lad was on automatic pilot. It was a regrettable, but understandable slip of the tongue
6:45 pm
Trifioso

over a year. And please note: this wasn't the first time he has made that mistake. And I just had had well and truly enough of it. Wasn't at my best (see: drove through white-knuckle storm) and I rather last it. I have apologized for my tantrum. He has yet to apologize to ME however.

Trifioso

oh hey! mr. hate is in the grid today! (evil laugh)
6:47 pm

There is truly something to be said for being out of the romance business completely...though a guy from high school just found me and we talk for a couple of hours on the phone. He's thinking about a trip out here...oh, no.
6:48 pm
MimiCat

Funny, Trif...and couldn't agree more.
6:48 pm
Trifioso

go forth mimi, go forth! for every crappy day valentine and I have there are a thousand happy ones
6:48 pm
Soodle

So, Trif, apart from the (forgivable) gaffes.... Is he a decent man? Does he treat you well? Is he a keeper?
6:49 pm
MimiCat

Nah...that ship has sailed...sank...is under the sand...it is GONE.
6:49 pm
Trifioso

He is a COMPLETE keeper. I knew it the minute I saw him with my mum, who has alzheimers. He was respectful, kind and patient. He is great with my kids, who all adore him, and he makes me very happy
6:49 pm
Trifioso

oh, mimi, I have such a lovely poem for you....please hold.....
6:49 pm
MollyL

Trif, no need to drive through dangerous storms to prove your devotion. And if he repeatedly calls you by his ex's name, that makes me wonder. But that's just me.
6:49 pm
MimiCat

BTW, Trif...LOVE your icon.
6:50 pm
MimiCat

I know, Molly...are we jaded?
6:50 pm
MollyL

No Mimi, just experienced.
6:50 pm
MimiCat

There you go!

I have had wonderful men in my life...and a couple of stinkers...I'm just DONE.

Fair Weather

This level reach of blue is not my sea;
Here are sweet waters, pretty in the sun,
Whose quiet ripples meet obediently
A marked and measured line, one after one.
This is no sea of mine. that humbly laves
Untroubled sands, spread glittering and warm.
I have a need of wilder, crueler waves;
They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm.

So let a love beat over me again,
Loosing its million desperate breakers wide;
Sudden and terrible to rise and wane;
Roaring the heavens apart; a reckless tide
That casts upon the heart, as it recedes,
Splinters and spars and dripping, salty weeds.
Dorothy Parker
6:52 pm
MollyL

And I should just shut up now because have discovered that experience is rarely something that benefits anyone other than yourself.
6:53 pm
Trifioso

molly, we have discussed it at length, believe me - he was married for 30 years, and said her name thousands of times....it's practically autonomic at this point. But enough was enough
6:53 pm
MimiCat

Absolutely gorgeous, Trif....thank you...and it's amazing how well that fits me....you are amazing.
6:53 pm
Soodle

Nah, Molly, I disagree. The name thing could just be habit. Once a person is kind, to you, and to those you love, well, they deserve a chance. I say ' I envy you Trif & I wish you all the happiness life can bring'.
6:53 pm
Trifioso

thanks mimi. I LOVE me some Dorothy Parker
6:54 pm
Trifioso

there is also this, mimi:

Symptom Recital

I do not like my state of mind;
I'm bitter, querulous, unkind.
I hate my legs, I hate my hands,
I do not yearn for lovelier lands.
I dread the dawn's recurrent light;
I hate to go to bed at night.
I snoot at simple, earnest folk.
I cannot take the gentlest joke.
I find no peace in paint or type.
My world is but a lot of tripe.
I'm disillusioned, empty-breasted.
For what I think, I'd be arrested.
I am not sick, I am not well.
My quondam dreams are shot to hell.
My soul is crushed, my spirit sore;
I do not like me any more.
I cavil, quarrel, grumble, grouse.
I ponder on the narrow house.
I shudder at the thought of men....
I'm due to fall in love again.
Dorothy Parker
6:54 pm
MimiCat

There is another way to look at it, Trif....he was obviously devoted...at least he is capable of that.
6:55 pm
Trifioso

he was indeed, mimi. We were both the "dumpees" so we have that in common. stupid bitch, I can't imagine WHAT she was thinking, but I am glad for my sake!
6:56 pm
MimiCat

My ex-husband would take me back in a minute...but too much damage was done to me. It is sad when you no longer can see yourself in love. I copied and pasted these poems to myself, Trif...so lovely of you to send these to me.
6:57 pm
Trifioso

not at all, mimi! happy to share good poetry
6:57 pm
MimiCat

I should share some of mine one day...I have written all my life. Wrote a one-act play when I was 10 years old.
6:59 pm
MimiCat

There comes a time in some lives when a wall has been built around the heart for protection...that is my situation now. I am very capable of giving love, just not good anymore of receiving it.

wow, really? I would love to read it! I majored in theatre in college, but only wrote one play, for a class. It was a greek style thing - we named all the characters things like "queen diabetes" and "king hepatitis." The messenger was named Herpes, because he spread new so fast...and there was a set of twins, both named Xeros

Reluctantly, i must go to bed. (Reluctant because this is shaping up to be a really great debate). But it's 1.00 am here & I must go to work tomorrow. Trif! I am very very happy that you have met what seems like a nice chap. Ypu deserve the best. (Does he have any older brothers?).

I think any time you are not feeling cherished and important in a relationship for any reason, it's okay to reevaluate, or do whatever you have to do to change things up.

Funny, Trif. I have also been a singer all my life and until 3 yrs. ago sang with a classic rock band, but am classically trained in voice. Hoping to get back on stage soon.

Hi
11:22 pm
RoundBarn

nef I've been lurking, just going to bed and here you are. hellow,=, all
11:24 pm
Nef

Hi herin and Round Barn. First chance I've had to sit down today and I thought I needed to change my deodorant or something! ;-)
11:25 pm
Nef

(and I've GOT to stop chatting in the Word box! It just doesn't work!
11:26 pm
Nef

(Of course, last night I was entering all sorts of Words and guesses into the chog too)
11:26 pm
RoundBarn

it was fun when you did. some things yesterday made me laugh--i should write them down.
11:26 pm
Nef

LOL! You were there???? Oh, My!
11:27 pm
Nef

How's the book coming?
11:28 pm
RoundBarn

at breakfasst crossy told of a site where you out in your writing and find ut what g=famous writer you write like--that kept everybody occuoied and laughing for a while0 --I suggested they put in ZHemingway and see if the site recognized Hemingway0 --it didn;t. I think Ruru was Pa Kettle
11:29 pm
Nef

Today?
11:30 pm
Nef

I'll have to check that out!
11:30 pm
RoundBarn

I am reading proof and it is exacting work. I've been so sick of the book I s=could scream, but now that I'm reading it in print it sounds pretty good and I find it interesting/////1
11:31 pm
Nef

Wonderful! That's great news! What do you think you'll do with the extra stuff you found?
11:31 pm
RoundBarn

yes, pretty early--s6 30, 7-- I couldn't resist coming out of hiding. Told Ctrossy he usually starts my day of right.
11:32 pm
Nef

Okay; I will check it out later tonight.
11:33 pm
Nef

(Doing laundry; it will be a late night I think. I should have started earlier I guess)
11:33 pm
RoundBarn

nos that there is BVolume 4, we can put in everything extra. Like all the books, annotated, that my dad and uncle and estjer and eloise read in District 12 School, back in 1912 or so. The books were pretty good. Told abpout evolution.
11:36 pm
Nef

Really? Now that sounds interesting. I have an old book from 1897, "Practical Physiology" used be premed students. The funny thing is it doesn't say 1 thing about sex or female reproductions anywhere!
11:36 pm
RoundBarn

once I manage half the grid I quit--but tonight after proofing at someone else's house I couldn't resist taking a look at babble--I find everyone interesting in different ways. Harp fell and hurt herslef--she saved her hands--reminds me of the vilinist I know--sorta famous I foraget her name--who was trapped in an el and had to dhoose between her leg and her violin--she said it wasn't a choice she just hung onto her violin (saved a strad--and she's a concert violinist now)
11:37 pm
herinfernallady

cant chat cat is proving to be a problem in that he is smacking me in the fce

11:40 pm
RoundBarn

so I'm going to sign off, dear nef, and friends--if I'm close at the flip, I'm lost. Poing. Or is it boing. one thing about the grid--certain words come up over and over again--neither is here tonight, but tern, roan--they can't stay away
11:40 pm
Nef

Well straighten Lucius out (I say as my cat jumps up on the back of my chair and wraps her tail around my neck!)
11:41 pm
Nef

Very true, Round Barn. Good Night and I hope to see you again!
11:41 pm
Nef

soon
11:42 pm
RoundBarn

I was at a house Friday where the big cat likes hair and settles himself on guest's heads. It was sorta nice.
11:43 pm
herinfernallady

Roundbarn. I just found the court case you were talking about. Her name is Rachel Barton
11:43 pm
RoundBarn

so now, really poing. I'll email nef when I get a chance. I've not been much of a friend to anybody lately, too crosseyed.
11:43 pm
Nef

Ashes has never been affectionate until the past year or so (she's now 15 I guess.)
11:44 pm
RoundBarn

I think that's it. she's played in Spfld a couple times. Did she marry? Was her bame Rachel Pine?
11:44 pm
Nef

Niters, Round Barn! Sleep well!
11:45 pm
herinfernallady

Yes it is.
11:45 pm
herinfernallady

Night Barn.
11:45 pm
herinfernallady

Nef it is past his alloted midday snuggle time
11:45 pm
Nef

Now I'm very curious ; what court case?
11:45 pm
RoundBarn

I met and admird her and went to her doncerts--knew friends of friends--and here is harpjane falling on shoulder and where else but not her hands--she plays with her hands. I can understand.
11:46 pm
Nef

How long does he snuggle, herin?
11:47 pm
herinfernallady

Usually at midday and usually for an alotted time of 30min
11:48 pm
RoundBarn

maybe there was a court case because the el door closed to soon, o she was dragged, or soething? Ig we look her up it will tell--Rachel Barton, or Pine--
11:48 pm
herinfernallady

O poo is Harp ok?
11:49 pm
Nef

I saw she made a comment about probably hurting tomorrow....
11:49 pm
RoundBarn

all were wishing her well and suggesting ice and other remedies but she said she couldb n't take certain meds--watch out for her tomorrow and find out--I qon't be on much, proofing takes forever and I'm hiring friends who need the cash, and als am welcoming volunteers--
11:49 pm
herinfernallady

Nef- Mrs Pine had an accident where she was pinned under a train after being dragged because her violin case got stuck on a train that didn't have proper safety sensors on their doors. She couldn't remove the violin or herself. It is a Strad
11:49 pm
herinfernallady

GIve my love to Harp
11:51 pm
Nef

Oh, Wow, herin! How horrible!
11:51 pm
RoundBarn

thank you for all those details. The remarkable thing is, she's playing, and playing well, and saved her fiddle--andher arms and shoulders.
11:51 pm
Nef

Seeing the snow that hit harps community, I can understand how she'd fall.
11:52 pm
RoundBarn

8 minutes and I'm trapped in the flip-door. So really poing.
11:54 pm
Nef

She and JillyJill live within 50 miles of Missoula, Montana, where most of my family is. I don't think I've ever seen the valley have that much snow there; and it's all from this last storm
11:54 pm
Nef

BYE, Round Barn!! Get out while you can!!!
11:55 pm
Nef

(I need to go switch loads now anyway)
11:55 pm
herinfernallady

Having seen someone killed by a train this young lady was very very lucky.
11:55 pm
Nef

YIKES, herin!
11:55 pm
Nef

(Be right back, but it will be after the flip)
11:56 pm
herinfernallady

And on that gory note I am going to go find lunch
