      Hi Everyone,
      I have been lazy lately and haven’t posted much. I guess because not much is going on. We actually went to our first live concert in two years over the weekend. it was an Eagles tribute and they were really good.
      So Labor Day is approaching. Even though the heat bothers me I am always sad to say goodbye to summer. I don’t like the trees losing their leaves and looking forward to the cold dark winter and it always gets me down a bit.
      On a happier note we will be going out to Colorado next month to see Brent for the first time in two years. I hope covid won’t make the trip be cancelled. I think if we are careful we can limit our contact with other people. We’ve already traveled to North Carolina during covid although that was in the spring before the new variants took hold. But the way I see it unless you can vaccinate every person in the world there will be new varients for years to come so you just have to make good decisions and be careful.
      Illinois has a mask mandate back in place but I expect to see less compliance this time around. it doesn’t bother me-if places want me to wear a mask I will do so happily.
      The kids are back in school full time. Both of our kids are now vaccinated though Jenny still needs the second dose but i am resting easier now. I will be glad when kids can be protected too. I personally don’t mind places and businesses that require vaccinations-in fact I prefer it-but i imagine vaccination mandates will be limited. We went over and stayed with them one evening last week as Jenny had a work outing in Chicago and didn’t want to leave the smaller ones under Kendall’s supervision into the night time. it was nice to be able to help again. Pretty soon they will all be older and won’t need us at all. Sniff sniff. lol
      I’m not sure what our plans are for the weekend. Maybe a cookout at Jenny’s?
      I think I have her convinced to let us rent a place up north and come up for a week with the kids next summer after our vacation on the river last month. I think the kids would love it-especially being on a lake that we can swim in. I’ve been trying to talk her into it for several years.
      I guess i am starting to look forward to doing some fall decorating. I think I really pared things down last year. i wonder what I will be in the mood to do this year. Well gotta go eat lunch.

      Hi Gail,
      They are going to have the Labor Day picnic this year. We are going and Danyielle and her kids are going well at least Aliza I am not sure about Owen. It will be fun with the kids there. We may pick up Grayson and take him with us and take him along. I do not imagine Brook will be able to come with us she will have to work.
      I have started reading again. It seems funny reading books and not being able to talk to mom about them. I read that new Patrick Taylor and it was really good. I have a few more books to read. The next one that I am going to read is about a Library that was closed during the war. It look really good. I saw another book that I want to order about a group of ladies who are quilters. I saw it on boob bub.
      I have another ear ache. I cannot believe that I did not get rid of the last one. So now I have to go to a specialist and find out if that is what causing the dizzy spells. This is really tiresome. I guess it is better then having covid.
      I hope that you can get Jenny to go up north with you next summer. They will really have a good time. It will be nice for you to go see Brent. I know that you will be really happy to see him.
      There is not a lot going on here. Have a great night and stay safe.

      Hi Colleen,
      The Labor Day picnic sounds like fun. I hope the weather is good. This is the time of year when I prefer to do outdoor stuff as it has cooled down a little. Greg says he thinks all the hummingbirds are gone now-on their way to where ever they go in the winter. maybe Mexico? There were a lot of them the last couple of weeks and now nothing.
      I’m glad that you are reading again. I never stopped and have probably read extra during the pandemic. I have only read a few of the first Patrick Taylor’s I still have quite a few to read in the series. i just jump around a lot and am not one of those people who reads a series straight through like some do.
      I just recently read Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg and really enjoyed it. Now I have to watch the movie sometime as the women on the QVC book thread said it was good.
      I just bought a book about quilters recently because it was set in the Wisconsin Dells which is a place that we are familiar with-I wonder if it is the same book that you are talking about. I will have to find it and see what the name is. I might have seen it on Book Bub-I get a lot of ideas from them and from Bookreporters too. I got a laugh because when you meant to write Book Bub you wrote Book Boob instead and it made me laugh out loud. Good thing I didn’t have a mouth full of coffee! lol
      I know what you mean-my Mom and I also used to talk about what we were reading a lot and for years I would think-Oh I have to tell Mom about this book and then remember that she was gone. Fortunately Jenny likes to read and so now I can pass along books to her-although she doesn’t have a lot of time to read she still enjoys it.
      The dizzy spells could be caused by something in your ear. I hope that you can get that figured out soon and something can be done to help you. Feeling dizzy is awful.
      Stay safe but have fun!

      Hi everyone
      I’ll make this quick cause I’m still sick. On antibiotic. Had awful pains in both sides of my back, aches all over, fever went up to 102.5, blood pressure dipped to 81/44, earache. It’s been a real hoot up here. Urine test negative but culture questionable. Dr said I’m fighting off something. Said symptoms don’t match up with covid
      Colleen , I had that thing in my ear where the crystals moved and I was very dizzy and nauseous. Was not fun. Hope you can get an easy solution
      Gailster, sounds like a good plan for next summer I hope it works out for you
      I hope you have a good time with Brent!
      Also hope everyone has a good time this weekend
      Luv all of you…you too DD

      Hi Ladies,
      Adele I’m sorry to hear you’re so sick. Hallie’s had some kind of bug for the past couple weeks. She was tested for Covid, but it came back negative, thank goodness. She hasn’t gone to the hospital yet.
      So did the hurricane hit you guys in Boston? I saw NYC was under water from it. Did it hit you? I hope it went out to sea.
      Colleen, dizziness is usually from the inner ear. When my mom was in hospice I had dizzy spells & I couldn’t stand up or walk. I had a battery of tests but nothing came of it. Then I started to catch a cold, so I took Dimeatap cold med, & after a couple days or so the dizziness went away. Whatever it was the cold meds took care of it. One Dr. thought he saw water behind the ear drum but no one else did. If it was water behind the ear the antihistimin (?) took care of it.
      We’re gonna have another mini heatwave this weekend. Mid 80s. It sure cools down when the sun goes down.
      I got my fall decor out but not put out just yet. I still enjoy having the tropical pics out.
      Not much going on here.
      take care, stay safe, stay well.

      Hi Gail,
      I cannot believe that humming birds can fly as far as they do. They are so small and are afraid of wasps. I just founf that interesting that a wasp as small as they are can kill a bird like that.
      I read both books that you mentioned. I also saw the movie and it was really good. I like the books Fannie Flagg writes. They are really good. I have a book by Agatha Christie that my sil wants me to read. So I guess that I will read that one next. I have a few books that I want to read. I need to get them read. I get stuck on a series when I read them. I was like that with the Harry Potter books also.
      It is a new book club .lol I cannot believe that I wrote that. I have not idea what I was thinking. Probably thinking of writing book and put the wrong letter in the end. You were the one who told me about your Book Bub. I was glad that I got on that site.
      None of my girls read any more. It was funny when I was reading Harry Potter the grands wanted to talk about that. It was funny the older kids all read the series. Just the littlest ones have not read it.
      I just hope the doctor get this all figured out and I can quit getting dizzy. Have a good evening and stay safe.

      Hi DD,
      I am glad that you and Gail are doing ok. I just wish I could get rid of this stuff. I have taken musniex for this the last time that I had it. It took care of it for awhile but it came back. I just have to see the specialist and will be glad when that is over.
      I am sorry to hear that you are going to have another heat wave. We are cooling down a little and I am glad of that. I want to go to the picnic over the week-end. It is usually a lot of fun and they will play music and have booths there. I just hope that they have the same ones that were there a couple of years ago. They had a lot of interesting things. I hope the girl that made baby clothes will be there again this year. I would like to have some for the new baby that is coming in October.
      I love all the pictures that you posted. The fall colors are all so pretty. I hope that ours will be that pretty this fall. It has really been a dry summer so the trees did not get enough rain.
      Well that is all from here. Have a great night and stay safe.

      Hi Adele,
      I hope that you feel better soon. You really have been having some crazy weather there. You got a lot of rain and we did not get much at all. I hope we get more rain this fall.
      I hope that you will be able to do something over the week-end. Maybe Bobby will grill something for Labor Day. Maybe the kids will fix you a good chicken soup to eat.
      Just take care of yourself and get a lot of rest. I am on a antibiotic also. Maybe we both will be better this week-end.
      Stay safe and take care of yourself.

      Hi DD
      It did hit us but not as bad. We got about 5 inches of water. I he tornado warnings were flashing for the Cape. I could not sleep all night. I kept checking the tv to see if we were getting any
      They had m stop the antibiotic because I could be having a reaction to it. Sure enough I felt better. But the awful pains in my back returned. So thi am I took one prednisone 5mg. That was enough to get hold of the pain
      So far I only have some boo fetti out I’ll be working on Annalee dolls next. But I feel so lousy when I move. Gonna make decorating tough. Lol
      Hope you have a good weekend and your weather cooperates

      Hey Colleen
      They took me off it yesterday after I said how I was feeling. Seems I’m allergic to it
      I can’t eat. Everything I eat makes me feel nauseous. I have hardly eaten anything since Monday. At least I should lose some weight. Lol
      Have you started decorating yet? DD is way ahead of us. I only have Boofetti out so far
      I hope you will have at your gathering this holiday weekend. Not sure what we’re going to do yet. People have been staying away from me. I don’t blame them
      Have a great weekend!!

      Hi Adele,
      That is terrible that the medicine that is supposed to make you feel better makes it worse. I hope that you will be feeling better and be able to have your family there for Labor Day.
      I haven’t started decorating yet. I need to get my granddaughter to come over and help me. She wants me to get all the decorations out this year starting Halloween thru Christmas. I do not have all the different things to set decorations on. I gave a lot of it away and sold some of it. We got new furniture and so there is not as much room.
      We are going into town for the picnic. It is the annual Labor day picnic. It is a lot of fun for the kids. Danyielle is coming with her family so they can go on the rides and play the games.
      Well that is all from here. Have a good night and be careful.

      Hi Everyone,
      When I went online this morning I had an email from Adele which said she was very weak and in the hospital. So I have no idea what is going on as I hadn’t heard from her in several days with the long weekend and such. I think prayers are in order, please. I sure hope she will feel better soon! This is scary.
      I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. Ours was very quiet-we didn’t even have a barbecue with Jenny. We did see them for our usual Friday night visit though. But Ricky locked his keys in his car at work so Jenny had to drive over with the spare key-so we stayed back with the kids and to pay for the dinner that we had ordered for all of us. It seems since the pandemic our lives have gotten very quiet and we have turned into home bodies.
      Two days ago we had some storms pass through and we had huge hail stones-it looked like popcorn was popping all over the lawn.
      I hope that I have better news to share about Adele soon and that she will be on the road to recovery. If you all hear anything please let the rest of us know.
      Colleen, it’s only about six weeks or so until the new baby comes. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time has flown.
      Prayers for Adele.

      Hi Ladies,
      Gail, have you heard anything from Adele? I was shocked when I read your post! I hope she’s gonna be alright. I know she has so many issues right now. I’m praying for her healing. You;re right it is really scary nowadays. I wonder if her allergic reaction is the cause of all this or did they misdiagnose her.
      I’ve gone out shopping with Hallie a couple times this week, so I’ve been able to get out a little bit. The weather wasn’t too bad. One day was pretty hazy with the smoke but nothing like we had last year. It was a yr ago Labor day weekend we had that horrific wind storm that blew down trees onto power lines that started those fires.
      We could use a fraction of the rain from Ida just to help put out the fires! But then we’d have another set of problems if we did.
      It looks like fall is in the air here. Some of the leaves are starting to turn. I;m pretty sure the heatwaves are done for this yr. I hope.
      Not much going on so I’ll close for now.
      Take care ladies. stay safe, stay well.

      Hi Gail,
      Thank-you for letting us know about Adele. I wonder what is wrong. I agree with DD she has not been feeling well at all for awhile. I hope that she gets better soon and does not have to stay in the hospital for long. She has had a lot going on this year.
      We went to the Labor day picnic on Labor Day and had a really good time. Danyielle Kevin and the kids came also. We had such a good time. I challenged Owen at darts and I won. He said he can’t believe that his grandma beat him at darts. It was funny. He did not think that I could beat him because I am a grandma. lol
      We are getting excited about the baby. I wish that she would get here soon. I want to see what she looks like and how Grayson will act when he sees her. I figure at first that he will be really jealous he has been the baby for so long.
      well that is about all from here. Please keep us posted about Adele. Have a great night and stay safe.

      Just a quick note to catch you all up on Adele.
      She was in the hospital for six days. She has an ulcer, UTI and her liver numbers were out of whack.
      She is home now and says she is still very weak and can barely walk with walker.
      I hope she is now on the road to recovery. I said I wished I lived closer as i would come over and nurse her.
      Praying for a full and speedy recovery.

      Hey everyone
      I’m alive. There were a couple of days I felt not for long! I associate sick. Sat amI told Gary to dial 911. I was admitted. Many tests later , uti, enlarged spleen, liver elevated, a spot of diviticuli in my stomach, and an ulcer.
      I can tell you that an ulcer is something you ever want.
      I was pretty miserable. Constant pain. Still having pain. It hurts when the stomach is empty, and every bite I eat
      With the new list of things I can eat it is very discouraging. No salads no fruit accept cantaloupe banana honeydew melon
      Hardly any veggies and they have to be cooked well
      I was happy to read you all had some fun on the holiday!
      Colleen, when is baby coming? They are such a joy
      Gail hanks for telling everyone. I was afraid you all thought the worst. I was so weak I could not text , talk or stay awake
      It was an awful time getting in the Jeep. My fireman neighbor got me out of the Jeep and in the house
      DD so glad you have been getting out! I hope your weather cooperates for more
      Please all of you take care of yourselves. Stay healthy!!
      Luv. Adele

      Hi Adele,
      I am glad that you are feeling better. It will take awhile to get use to the new diet. I hope you stomach will calm down soon. What are you taking for your ulcer? I hope you do not have to take a lot of new medicines. Just take care of yourself and get a lot of rest. Give yourself time to feel better. You are in my prayers.
      The flowers that they sent are really pretty. You have such a good neighbor. The baby is due the 18th of October. I cannot wait to see her and Grayson together. It will be interesting to see if Grayson will accept her or not. He is a little spoiled.
      Take care of yourself.

      Hi Everyone,
      Adele, I hope that you are progressing well. The flowers from your neighbor are so pretty. I love sunflowers and fall arrangements.
      Colleen, Grayson and the new baby will be pretty close in age so when she gets bigger I’ll bet they play together a lot.
      Will the father be in the delivery room with Brook-if not will someone else be there? I surely hope so.
      DD it’s good to know that you and Hallie are getting out.
      My life is pretty boring since we still are not going out much and doing things.
      We did go to a concert in our little local place last weekend. It’s nice to get out and see other people.
      They were supposed to have moved the Milk Day parade from June to October but I doubt they will be having it at all again this year. I just don’t think this town is ready for the crowds that this event draws in. If they are going to cancel it they should announce it soon.
      It amazes me when I see all the football stadiums packed full.
      I see Broadway opened last night but I think you need proof of vaccination to attend unless you are a young person-but i am not sure if those are the rules-I am just assuming they would be.
      The announcement of who wins AGT is tonight-I usually have a strong feeling of who will win but this year I am not sure at all. They need to have all these finales this week as next week the fall programs will start including The Voice, DWTS and The masked Singer and another singing show with people singing as their avatars. I think I will pass on that one. It’s just too many competition shows to watch at one time. Along with all the Halloween baking competitions that I like to watch on the food network. I would need to take up full time TV watching. lol

      Hi Gailster
      It is slow and steady. But I am getting there. This one took a lot out of me.
      This time I have a nutritionist coming to the house to talk about what to eat. I am dying for her to come.
      Did you know bananas heal the stomach? New to me too
      It’s gross humidity up here. Soupy air. Hate this stuff. We’re supposed to get thunderstorms this afternoon.
      Hope everyone is good!!!

      Hi Adele,
      Ha ha you gave me a chuckle when you wrote to Colleen that you hoped the pregnancy was going well. It sounded like she was pregnant. lol That would be a miracle! lol The time is getting close that’s for sure.
      I’m glad that you are improving. You had me frightened.
      What did they say about you being able to take NSAIDS or prednisone as I know they are both hard on the stomach. If it’s not one things it’s another.
      Fortunately they now have good ulcer medications.
      My mother had ulcers for years and back then there wasn’t a lot that you could do. I remember her drinking baking soda and water all through my childhood and her not being able to eat many things. At some point when I was older she had an operation called a pyloroplasty or something like that and never had problems again. It was like a miracle for her.
      It will be interesting to see what the nutritionist has to say. I didn’t know that about bananas but it makes sense as they seem pretty neutral. I hope that you like them.
      I hope you are getting less humidity. Our weather has been nice. Less humid and cooler but we will be shooting back up to 90 this weekend.

      Hey Gailster
      Yes the food is very limited. It’s awful. I scared myself too. I thought I was dying
      When the EMT’s picked me up I told them…. Please don’t let me die. My daughter died last year and they will all fall apart if I’m gone …..
      It was bad. Of all the things I endured over the years this pain was the worst. I even lost consciousness. I have no memory of the first two days in the hospital.
      They are leaning toward years of arthritis meds causing the liver damage. Not sure about the spleen. Accept I know it is still swollen because both my sides hurt to the touch.
      They did a lot of blood work yesterday.
      It is still gloomy up here. I hope the sun comes out cause it makes you so achy and down

      Hi Ladies,
      Sorry I haven’t been on here lately. Hallie’s been in the hospital since last Sat. She went in with breathing problems & has been in ICU since then. Apparently when they went to intubate her, she vomited & some of it got into her lungs; causing her to develop pneumonia. (I don’t know how that happens, but that;s what I was told). and she’s been in a medically induced coma for most of the duration. Nobody’s allowed to visit due to the Covid restrictions. No idea when she’ll be well enough to come home. they have to make sure she can breathe on her own. Will keep ya posted on what happens. I went several days not knowing what was going on with her. I tried texting, many times but got nowhere. I was finally able to get a hold of her husband & he filled me in on what was going on.
      Well we finally got a good rain storm this weekend. We got over an inch of rain so far. It’ll dry out in the next few days, but the temps will be much cooler. it sure felt good to feel the rain. It cleared out the smoke & it smells so much better. My windows got a good washing too! We had some ash drop in last week. the cars were plastered with it & so were the windows. the rain came down like a fire hose cleaning everything off.

      Before I forget, there’s a Falloween QF show on the Q @ 3:00 pm-5:00pm ET tomorrow(Monday). The host will be Mary D, so it should be a good show. She gets silly but that’s okay. I like her. I like her better than some of the other hosts. Aren’t I awful?
      Adele, I imagine you’ll be put on a bland diet with your ulcer. Bananas are good for that. They’re bland, easy to digest, I think. Let’s see tapioca, cream of wheat, things that are easy to digest. Nothing with acidity. Good luck with that. I hope they’ve changed the diet since the last I heard about it.
      Well, I guess I better get off here, before I lose this.
      Take care, stay safe, & feel better soon Adele.

      Well all be watching the show today, especially Tillie. Lol
      I am so sorry about Hallie I will. add prayers for her. Please keep us updated. 👍👍♥️♥️🙏🏻🙏🏻
      My new diet is worst than that. No milk. So no pudding. Hardly anything is on it. Extremely restricted and very boring. I really miss veggies
      The new pill for ulcers makes you pee all night long. Every hour on the hour. Losing sleep every night us s killer
      I am still weak. It’s taking a long time to heal. They said years of arthritis meds caused my liver to start to fail and the spleen to swell. I need the indomethacine to move and it could kill me. Not a good choice
      So glad you finally got some rain. Hopefully your weather will start to turn around
      Please take care

      Hi Ladies,
      I hope you all caught the QF show today. I loved several of the tops but they’re too expensive. Some were sold out before I got a good look at them. There was a sweater/jacket with cats on it & it sold out before the presentation. I like Mary as the host of the show. She was great for the Falloween show. she really gets into it.
      It was a gorgeous early fall day today. After all the rain we got over the weekend, (over an inch & a half) the clouds parted & was a lovely day. It;s gonna be getting warmer the next couple of days, but cools down from Wed. on. I’ve pulled out my cooler weather clothes & put most of my summer stuff away. I’ve left some out just in case.
      I see they’re having ” The joy of Christmas” sale for the next 3 days on the Q. I’ll have it on in the background while working around the house.
      Well, no big news on Hallie. she’s still in ICU.
      The full moon is gorgeous tonight. We got a clear view of it tonight.
      Take care, stay safe.

      Hi DD
      This was one show I really enjoyed. Mary was great. I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes
      Tillie had a great time too. She ordered a few things. I ordered the cord leggings and the boo top. I figured after all I have been through I needed a present!!
      I’m sorry what you wanted was gone. That is usually me!
      That’s awful about Hallie. She is in my prayers. You must be very worried
      Our weather is nice. But it’s going to rain end of week again I wish I could sit outside. But I’m still so weak and the back hurts a lot. I can’t sit in the metal chairs. Oh well
      Hope you have a good day

      Hi DD,
      I’m so sorry to hear about Hallie. I will be praying for her.
      The show yesterday was good. I have always liked Angel. However, I just don’t think Quacker is as popular as it was years ago.
      They are not on the main channel nearly as much as they used to be. But Jeanne came on 25 years ago and styles do change.
      We are getting cooler here now-upper 60’s for day time and upper 40’s at night.
      I enjoy the Christmas decorating shows but wish they had more fall decorating too. I do like Valerie. She’s always so calm.

      Hi Adele,
      What is the ulcer medication that makes you pee? I am already up several times a night doing that without a pill. lol
      I have not heard from Colleen recently either.
      Hopefully as time goes by and you heal you can slowly add a variety of foods back into your diet. I know you said the nurse said it was life long but eventually ulcers heal-naturally they want you to be careful and I know that you will be.
      How did you like DWTS last night. Obviously Tyra did not improve or change. Greg kept saying what an ugly outfit she had on and I said she was dressed like a mirror ball. lol She is just really bad. I kind of just try to skip over her parts. I felt bad for the Kobra kai guy-he just kind of stood there while his partner danced around him.

      Hey Gailster
      I heard from Colleen. She is fine
      The medicine is ic sucraalfate. I take it before meals and before bed
      Today is a good day. I took Tylenol in the am and for the first time, it took all the pain away. Go figure! That was wonderful
      I also had PT. I got a new person and I’m thrilled. I hated the one who was coming. She did not like me, and I did not like her. The one I used to have no longer works for them.
      Tyra was on Tamron this am. She said her dresses are all custom made for her.
      It’s such a shame she is a lousy presenter because everyone loves her! You would think they would coax her along. Then there is Terry Crews on AGT who is fabulous!
      That older guy will be the first to go. It was painful watching him I loved the basketball player and Len gave him the what for. Go figure!
      Did you see the show Ordinary Joe? I loved it.
      There are so many new shows on this year
      It is cooler here but going to get very humid by tonight with rain to follow. I still have the air on
      Have a good night

      HI Ladies,
      I talked with Hallie today. She called me from her hospital room. She’s out of ICU now. Her voice is pretty bad from the intubation. She has to have pt since being in bed for so many days. they tried to get her up & she wasn’t able to stand up. I hope they get her the equipment she needs to keep breathing!! If she’d had it to begin with she wouldn’t have had to be in the ICU for more than a week.
      so, anyway, there’s a QF show next week for fall again. Gail, I’m gonna have to look up your email address again & I can forward it to you.
      We had some more showers today. it’s feels so good & the air smells so clean now. I haven’t heard how it’s effecting the fires tho..the cooler temps alone should be helping the firefighters.
      Not much going on here.
      Take care, stay safe.
      dd.
      PS: HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL

      Hey DD
      That’s great news!!! I’m so glad she is on the mend. It will take a long time to get her strength back. I’ve been out of the hospital for two weeks, and I’m still using the walker. It’s slow and steady. But every week she will see a little improvement
      I’m glad your air finally cleared out. Nothing worst than smoke filled gloomy air
      It’s sunny with on and off showers up here. It’s supposed to pour tomorrow. Yuck
      Did you see the Goldbergs last night? I cried through the whole thing. Best show they ever did. Each of the family members were just like my family here with their grief. I totally related to it
      Have a good day!

      Hi DD,
      I’m so glad that Hallie is feeling better. That must have been very scary. Thanks for the info on the upcoming shows.
      It was in the mid forties here this morning. Getting chilly!

      Hi Adele,
      We watched the Goldbergs-it’s one of Greg’s favorite shows. I think that was a well done tribute to George Segal. I loved him on that show. I’m glad it was cathartic for you. Do you watch The Connors? It just seems that show has become depressing rather than funny anymore.
      Gray’s Anatomy comes back this week I think. I wonder how much longer that will last as a lot of people seem to be leaving. I think I just keep watching now because i watched from the very start just like with ER but I’m not even sure if I like it that much anymore. Meredith was never my favorite and of course she’s the main character. I know they do a lot of crossover shows with Station 19 which I don’t watch but I don’t really feel like I’ve missed anything because of it-I can still follow Gray’s just fine.
      Do you watch any of those Halloween baking shows on Food network? I like to watch those and see the different cakes that they make. They have started already.
      Have a good weekend. The weather is supposed to warm up again after tomorrow.
      The White Sox have won their division championship. Greg is happy since he’s from the south side and a Sox fan-the kids and I are Cubs fans-but we will all root for the Sox as it is a Chicago team.

      Hey Gailster
      We do watch the Connors. But I missed most of it because I fell asleep. Lol
      I have not seen Greys yet. We dvr’d a lot this week cause we wanted to see the new shows. We’ll catch up this weekend. I heard Blue Bloods does not start til Oct 1.
      Meredith is very whiny. I think that’s why you don’t like her. Lol
      It’s going to thunder up here very shortly. Then pour the rest of the day
      This humidity is killing my back and energy level. It has been awful all week long. It’s supposed to lower some time tonight
      Hope your day is sunny Nd bright!

      Hi Adele,
      Greys doesn’t start until this week. Do you watch Station 19 too? I don’t even though there seems to be a lot of cross over stories with Grey’s and them I don’t feel like I’ve missed anything by not watching as i can still follow the story lines.
      yes, that’s probably why I don’t like Meredith-I can never unforget the time when she was whining to Mc Dreamy pick me chose me-I thought that was very un 21st century woman. lol I felt like she put women’s lib back 30 years by doing that. Also she is kind of a self righteous know it all.
      I wonder if she will have a romance with the Irish doctor now that DeLucca is gone even though i never expected that she and DeLucca would last anyway.
      If doctor’s keep leaving the show they will have a shortage. lol
      I hope Maggie and her husband stay together without a lot of drama and angst. Especially since it looks like Amelia and Linc might split. I’ve always liked Amelia but she is sure self destructive-she needs to get out of her own way. I actually liked Amelia and Qwen together even though I knew it wouldn’t work-not crazy about Owen’s present love Teddi especially after she and Koracik were doing the deed while Owen was waiting for her to show up for their wedding.
      Did you say that you had heard from Colleen? I was wondering because she has not been on here for awhile.
      I hope that you are feeling better.

      Hi Gailster
      I did hear back from Colleen. She is ok. Just had not been on She always has internet issues where she lives. That could be why. She is ok. I’ll try to email her again
      I feel the same way. I don’t want the couples on Grays to split up. I like them together
      I do watch Station 19. We had so much recorded to watch this past weekend. We still didn’t watch the NCIS’. Lol
      DWTS is on tonight. I just heard Cheryl Burke has covid
      I finished the eyeglass case I did for Steph’s Auntie. I started on Santino’s stocking. Pics attached. Ho. Ho. Ho
      Hope your day went well

      HI Ladies,
      Sorry I haven’t been on here for awhile. Nothing to talk about really. I think we made up for the lack of rain. We had a “firehose” of a rain storm blow through here late yesterday & it continued today. I think more rain is on the way. But we desperately needed it. We got a flood warning for some areas aroung the area. Low lying areas. I’m in no danger of flooding. I’m fine. We didn’t even get to 60 today.
      I’m still getting my fall decor put out. I’m getting slower all the time. I think I over whelm myself at times.
      Hallie’s out of the hospital & out & about. Her voice is still raspy from the intubation tube. I think she does too much too soon. She went back to the ER over the weekend, but left before being seen.
      Well, I guess that’s all for tonight.

      Hi DD
      We love to hear from you. Please don’t ever feel you have nothing to say. Just knowing you are ok is great news!!
      I’m glad Hallie is doing better. I hope she continues to do better
      I love your Fall pics!!
      I am the same way. It’s a slow process to do things as we get older. This aging is not fun. Lol
      We’re about to have a thunderstorm. Tomorrow will finally be Fall weather I can’t wait!!
      Hope your day is good
      Did you see that awful dress Tyra had on yesterday? It was hideous. She is such a pretty woman. The person who designs for her should be fired!!
      Love you!

      Hi Ladies,
      I have not been on here for awhile. We got some really bad news. My brother has stage 4 lung cancer. It was such a shock and still is. He has always been the one in the family that always been so healthy. They tried a new treatment on him but it did not work. Then he went on chemo and they told him it is not working. I really need you ladies to start praying for him. They are going to send him to another doctor and see what they can come up with. All the prayers you can say for him would be appreciated.
      Thanks
      Colleen

      Hi Ladies,
      Colleen, I’m sorry to hear about your brother. I’ll keep him in my prao yers. You must be reeling from the news. I know it came as quite a shock when we were told mama had breast cancer. It was like getting hit with a 2X4. My world was turned upside down. I hope & pray they find something that will work.
      Boy the days are sure getting shorter all the time. Dark by 7:30 now. It feels like midnight so early now.
      It appears snowball’s fur is coming in thicker. That’s a sign of a cold winter.
      We had a dry day today but the rain is coming back tomorrow.
      I hope everyone was able to watch the QF show yesterday. it was too early for me. Besides, I can’t afford it anymore.
      Well that’s all for tonight.
      Take care, stay safe.

      Hi DD
      Their prices continue to go up. I still have not received the shirt from the last show. I may as well cancel it because I will only have a couple of weeks to hear it by the time it gets here!
      It has been getting dark so fast. Boy does that become noticeable!
      Live the Fall pics!! My favorite season
      Hope you have a good weekend
