Looks like lots going on in the swamp after just reading the morning posts. Although there was a lack of sun today, it was warm to spend the day outside. :D Picked up a 7day read at the library this morning that will keep me busy.....for 7 days, although they have canned the late fees since Covid :wink: . Cheers with some red. Not sure what's for din din....back to my book... Enjoy your weekend; good luck Patti!

We're ordering pizza for dinner. Don't really like Papa John's (even though it is based in Louisville), but I'm kinda curious about those Papadias. So, I'm gonna get one of those. Currently in with a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel-aged Pumpkin Ale from Alltech Brewing.

#1 and I are about to have a "sock matching & sorting, laundry washing drying folding hanging & putting away, and maybe work a little on cleaning the basement while watching a movie" party. He is 16 and THRILLED to be pulled away from his video game and online chat to hang out and work with his dad for a few hours. THRILLED! I tell you!

Of course Kenny told him everything's good. Im sure he doesn't remember a thing, thats what really su*cks. will keep telling him he needs to see a dr, probably not much that can be done except give us piece of mind, whats left of mine anyway :lol: :lol: hey if you don't laugh you cry, happy for the good days :D

Linda, my dad suffered from Alzheimers. A former neighbor of mine shared with me the best advice I got about dealing with it. She told me, "It's OK to laugh. And you HAVE to. You feel guilty about it because you feel like you're belittling the shell of the former person you loved. But, they won't remember it so it's not cruel at all. It helps you. A lot! And chances are they'll end up laughing with you."

Sorry Linda, I hope you can convince him to see a doctor to at least find out what's really happening. AH neighbor doing his thang, doing my best to try to ignore. We had some home made baked clams as an appetizer and I'm making pork chops, pilaf and salad for dinner. On gin and tonic number two.

Oh Linda so sorry. You may have to stop asking him to see a doctor but rather make the appointment and have one of his children go with you. Tell Kenny he asked you to make the appointment . That allows him to maintain control and he knows he forgets some things :wink: . busy day here...Setar fixed our issues and the issues all o ur close neighbors were having. Further in may be no better...but I am not on the whatsap neighborhood news site :wink: Calls to customer service on other places we do business with....all very nice...hope the last one solves my problem :roll: Stuffed peppers for dinner with a side of rice and salad. Red for me! Have a good night friends!

Great advice, Ann. Linda I'm sorry you're going through this with Kenny. I'm sure it's so frustrating and sad for you.

We're on the porch with cocktails and will eat in about an hour. I picked up a meatball sub for Tommy and a sciachatta for me (Prosciutto, Arugula, tomatoes, eggplant, mozzarella, pesto). It's their own triangular bread. Tommy will have half. I was there picking up subs for the 4 of us for the trip to Block tomorrow so I grabbed dinner while I was there.

This arrived for Levi today!

I saw it online and bought it about 6 weeks ago and totally forgot about it.

We're meeting at the marina at 5 am tomorrow so I'll eat in a little while and head to bed!! :lol: I'm hoping to get some great pictures, in addition to some big fish!

Linda, sorry for what's happening in yours and Kenny's lives. Ann has a good suggestion. Make the appointment and let him think it was his idea and definitely take one of his sons with you. Wishing you both the best.

Tonight it was done-overs from last night. In with a rum and coke now. Enjoy your evening everyone.

Cheers! Wow it’s easy to forget how tiring a four year old can be. She’s in bed and we’re having a beer. We had pizza and salad for supper with birthday cake and ice cream for dessert. This is our oldest (almost 20) and youngest (just four). They are cousins with similar names - Kayleigh and Calleigh. Yes we screw it up sometimes and it’s worse when my side is also around with my nieces Katie and Kayla. :lol: :lol: Hugs Linda. My thoughts with Evert & Ingrid.

Ingrid, it's good to read that Evert's pain is less. Hopefully he can go home next week.

I had a veggie wrap for supper and beer at one bar--friend celebrating the sale of her house, moved into a condo. Then I went to the other bar for cranberry fizzes and watched some tv. It's a sad anniversary here--50th anniversary of the Wichita State University plane crash in Colorado that killed 31. One plane made it, the other did not. I was only a junior in high school at the time but I remember it.

(((Linda))) Ann, excellent advice for Linda.


"The kids" just left - Alyssa, Eric and little "S". It's Lyss and Eric's fifth wedding anniversary today. :D

David and I took a ride to Bristol, RI this afternoon and ate at one of our favorite restaurants down there, then walked around Colt State Park on the water. It was beautiful, but windy.

Ingrid, continued best wishes going to Evert and to you as well. I hope he's feeling much better and home with you very soon.
