~ Last Day of November at Last ~
~ And Happy Pay Day on Thursday! ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Multi-Function Printer ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And where did Wednesday go? Nothing entered into my Blog until 4 p.m. What have I been doing?
Well again I didn't get up until 6 a.m. Half the Day gone already... And a few things to do on the Computer
Got my Morning Stuff done, then headed to Walgreens for some Eye Vitamins, Supposed to help retard aging vision
And I stopped back by the Price Chopper for a Jug of Vino Tinto and some more Lottos
Traded in $25 worth of Winners and won back only $20, not the way to play the Game

Then a really late Breakfast and on with the Day, was just heading out to take the Trash out
And I saw the FedEx Truck come down the Street, turned around and stopped in front of my place
I wasn't expecting anything until next Saturday but the Guy brought a Box to my Door... Hah! My Printer
So, I brought in it, then dumped my Trash and started on the unboxing and installing, should be easy enough

Everything went well... I put the CD in my Comouter and started the Install, that usually goes well
Until I got to the Hook up to the Wi-Fi, that can get tricky and it did, Got everything going and using the Printer KeyPad
It wanted to know the Key Number to my Wi-Fi... I tried to enter it but it would just type Letters, not numbers
How do you type numbers? I had to hunt around on the Net to find out... HAH... Found it in a User Manual
Why don't they tell you in the Setup Routine... You have to hit the Letter Key that also has the Number several times
When it shows the Number you want, then you go to the next Number... OH MY... But I got it entered and I was online!

So then I tested it on plain Paper then printed out DVD Labels on Photo Paper, trimmed to size and into an envelope
So I'll send that to Carolyn and she can swap out the Bad Label and slip in the good one... VOILA!

That's enough of the Business Day(?)... I put a Turkey Leg in the Oven to heat up nicely
Then on to the TV Evening with a little T-Day rerun.. How Sweet is It!

~ Another Sunny and Warm Day for November ~
~ Moving Shelves around Again ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ The Micro Tomato Plant is not 'Micro' in Height ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Starting off a bit Cooler on Tuesday Morning and not reaching as high a Temp as Monday but nice for November
And a slow Morning getting things done on My Banking And Charge Accounts, changing Passwords on everything
Also scheduling Bills to be Paid in December and I have a lot of them... And not good news on December Income either
My Health Reimbursment Account from IBM has run out, so I have to pay the Med Premiums for December with no help

But January will better if I can make it through December, but then My Rent goes up, my Social Security and IBM Pension do not
Looks like I might have to cut back on my Lottos and buying new Tech Toys and try to live within my Income
But I have never done that and not sure how to do that... My Motto is SPEND if ya got it!

Before I got into my Computer Password stuff I thought I would raise the Shelf and Light above the Kitchen Plants
I raised the Shelf as high as it would go, now the only lights are the Fluorescents above the top Shelf
That might slow the growth of the Tomato and Pepper Plants but that's the way it is for now

~ Shelf Raised all the Way so the Tomato Plant has room to Grow ~

Then a mid morning Peek at the Tomato Plant in the Living Room, already past the 24 Inch Grow Light of the Aerogarden
And now at 15 Inches above the Grow Light Hood, just how high will they grow? Certainly not a Miniature Plant
I thought when I ordered the Seeds that 'Micro Tomato' meant a plant like the 'Mighty Minis' I got from AeroGarden Company

Then at Noon-Thirty I made a quick Trip to the Price Chopper, needed a few Items and another try at winner Lottos
Bought $25 worth of Scratchers and won back $25, that's no Win? I really need that BIG ONE!

On into the usual uneventful Afternoon, just puttering around, then my TV session, then Visit from a Friend
He needed assistance renewing some Atomobile licenses online with the Missouri Department of Revenue
Then a Burger and some fresh Cole Slaw with one of those little Mexibell Peppers added, fresh and tangy

Now... Wednesday, halfway through the Working Week like they used to say... and Pay Day Tommorrow and I NEED IT!

~ Monday, November 28, 2016 ~
~ Mailed Carolyn's DVDs ~
~ Hung Christmas Lights around my Front Window ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ My Christmas Window ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Bright Sun and a warmer start on Monday... About time after that gloomy weekend, we have all Winter for that
And a slow start getting my Morning all organized, a couple things to do later, first off to the Post Office
Got my DVDs mailed and trotted on up to the Price Chopper for a few Lottos, didn't buy any for a couple Days
And might as well have skipped that trip... Bought $20 worth, only won $8 Back, where did my good luck go?

So, after another late Breakfast I went out front to drill screw holes to mount my Christmas Lights
This Year making a Frame of Lights around the Wreath I usually hang on my front Window, looks Christmasy

And after that the dragged on with nothing much going on, really nice 'Winter' Weather outside
Sunny and Warm, just nothing at all like late November is supposed to be but they say that's coming

I saw that a few more of the Mexibells Peppers in the Pot in the Kitchen were turning Red
So I popped them off, used one to pep up some Hash later that I nuked up for Dinner later
Just a couple more Peppers on those plants but I'll keep them going as long as the Leaves stay healty

~ Three more little Beauties ~

One more Garden Note, the Tomato Plant I moved to a Pot in the Kitchen is getting tall and now has Blooms
So there is a minor project to do, raise that Shelf above it to raise the light and also give it growing room

~ Tomato Plant in the Pot getting Tall ~

Ok, enough of Monday, what's for Tuesday, not expecting much but off we go

~ Ever Onward and Upward! ~


~ Sunday, November 27, 2016 ~
~ HUH? 1 p.m. Sunday and no Start on my Blog? ~
~ Well, not a lot going On ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Pepper Blooms at the Ceiling ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well another late start, about 6 a.m when I rolled out, usually about 5 a.m.
Not real cold but a dreary looking Morning out there and again no plans for that dreary Day
So I finished my Computer Stuff, with my Juice, Coffee and one of those 'Boost' drinks the Doc gave me
Then later after clean-up I had a piece of Cherry Pie that Pat brought over on her Movie Visit... and tasty at that

And I headed off to Office Max to find an Ink Cartridge, they had the one I wanted and less than I thought
Heading back, stopped in at the Price Chopper to trade in a $10 Win on $10 worth of Losers, just no luck lately
And then time to install the new Cartridge and print some Labels, Stuck in the Cartridge, it ran the Align Test
Then I tried to print the Label again and no Red Color at all... Now what? I ran a couple Print Head cleaning trials
That didn't work so I popped the Ink Cartridge out and tried to clean where the Cartridge sits, still no go

OK, that means replace the Print Head or buy a new Printer, I looked them up, checked on the 'Best' one of 2016 online
Came up with a Brother 'Multi Function' they liked, best thing is the low Ink usage and cost, looked good to me
I checked Walmart online, they had that Model and it was on Sale so I ordered it, and I sure hope it works
I put the Faulty Labels on the DVD Cases, will send them Tomorrow, I can send some nice ones when the new Printer gets here

~ Cucamelon Vines as High as they can Go ~

Well, coasting on to 2:30 p.m. Still so dreary out there, they said Rain but none so far
I popped me a Boston Lager to assuage my mild thirst... Adding to my liquid intake, more water in Beer than in my Margarita
Did some piddling around in the Living Room and Kitchen, some tiny housekeeping tasks, keeping some neatness anyway
Time to think up somethng for an afternoon Snack and some Dinner later, keep that nutrition up like the Doc says
Maybe a little TV Interlude to give me some Ideas for later

And a bit later I trotted out to the Kitchen to putter around, put out some leftover Enchiladas for dinner
Then that fresh Salsa I made a couple Days earliet, decided to make it into 'Salsa Preparada'
I had some of my other Salsa Picante in the Fridge, and some in the Freezer, decided to combine it all
Put the frozen Salsa and the fridge Salsa and the fresh 'Pico de Gallo' Salsa in the Pot, let that simmer
Then all mixed together and tastier that ever, back into a Canning Jar to set in the Fridge for whenever

And some of that 'whenever' was at Dinner, I had those thawed Enchiladas on a plate, added Cheese and some of that Salsa
Nuked that up, back to the TV for the 'Comida Mexicana' and that stuff was really Tasty, better than any of the original Salsas!

~ Some Rejuvenated Enchiladas ~

So that was enough of that dreary and cold Weekend, are we now in for a dreary cold Monday? Let's go see

~ Ever Onward and Upward! ~


~ Saturday, November 26, 2016 ~
~ Working on my new Health Program ~
~ Actually ate More ~ And got a bit of Exercise ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A slow start for Saturday, didn't get up until after 6 a.m which is rare, then my Blog was lengthier than usual
I had my Apple Juice first, then my Coffee, then the usual check with the Bank, Facebook and Email
Posted a couple comments back to Facebook, read my Email and worked my Crossword Puzzle, anything important left out?
Not likely, I just rattle on about this and that and nothing of much importance except to me... I am all alone and like it

So I didn't head out for my Lottos until after 10 a.m. and for a change, one $10 Ticket Win after Four Days of losers
And then back home to construct a large Breakfast, trying to get with the 'Eat More' Program... What shall we have?
Well I chunked up a Tater, fried that up with Unyuns and an Aig... And a dollop of my Salsa Picante, very Tasty
And a piece of Buttered Toast with Rhubarb Sauce and of course a glass of Milk to go with it, very ample meal

So then Part Two of the Doc's ideas... Get more Exercise, How, Where, When? Sounds like work to me and I am not fond of that
OK, how about if I walk up the Hill for the Mail, that Hill is steep! That should give me a pretty good workout
So I headed out, and had to stop about every Twenty Feet for a look around (means take a rest)... Finally made it
Looking for some Ink to print a DVD Label, supposed to be delivered but not there yet... Ok, I'll drive up later

~ On the Way up the Hill ~

Back down the Hill and on with the Afternoon, putting off my Cocktail until later, don't want to get sleepy early
And set something out for Dinner, thinking maybe a smoked Bratwurst on a Bun, that should go good
And what do I have in there to go with it, probably have something to warm up or make fresh

~ On the Way down the Hill ~

And so passed the time playing on the Computer and checked my Mail later. AHA.. said my Package was delivered
So this time I drove the Mercedes up the Hill, got my Package, back down the Hill to open it
Opened the Package, opened the Cartridge and ink Spilled on my Hand and Shirt and the Floor... OH NO!
I installed the Cartridge anyway, did not leak on the way into the Printer... but once installed it would not work
So what now, I still need a Magenta Cartridge, I'll just trot over to Office Max and try to find a good one

On to the rest if that rather uneventful Day, later did that Bratwurst, more old Colombo TV and off to Bed
Come on Sunday, try to be a little more Interesting.... Please

~ Follow Up Doctor Appointment ~
~ A Movie Afternoon with Pat ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Clay Platte Family Medicine Clinic ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Off to see my Primary Doctor for my Follow Up Appointment at 7:45 a.m. Friday Morning
Checked in at 8 a.m. filled out a Paper and had a seat, not too long and I was called in
The preliminary checks and then a half hour wait for the Doctor, finally came in and 'How are you?'... 'Don't ask!'

Nah, it was friendier than that, he seems to be interested in my welfare... On to the Chatter then
He went through the report from the Hospital Emergency Room, some questions and suggestions
He saw that my 'Electrolytes' were low... (sodium chloride, potassium, calcium, and sodium bicarbonate)
So, not eating enough, not drinking enough liquids, things like that I could work on, and changing my prescriptions
Then he wanted to check my 'Dim Lights' again, gave me a case of 'Boost' Nutrient for free... Sent me to the Lab

So, Oh no, another Poke in the arm, for the Electrolyte check and also my PSA Test, saved me a trip next week
I mentioned to him that I had to do that next week and he said they could do that there, saved another poke in the arm
Headed on back home a little after 9 a.m. Stopped on the way to get more loser lottos, back home to sample a bottle of that 'Boost'

Now, my Plan... I don't have much appetite now and have not been eating much, not drinking enough liquids
So I'll drink his Case of Boost Nutient, try to eat and drink more and see what happens after that beside gaining weight
Had my Juice and Coffee Earlier and then that bottle of Boost, on to try to have a nice Breakfast after that

Finished my late Breakfast, on to the Day, my friend Pat was coming over at 1 p.m. to watch an old Classic Movie
So I decide to neaten up the Kitchen a bit before company arrived, my Table is usually cluttered with everything going on
I put most everything away, it does look better that way, might just have to do better housekeeping

On to 1 p.m. and right on time I saw her coming down the Hill, so come on in, and we had some Chat to catch up before the Movie
Then I fired up the Movie, that old Cinerama Movie looked great on my 4K TV, great color and so sharp!
You would not believe that Movie was released in 1963, still none look better today, most not as good

~ Our Movie for Friday ~ Where I watched it in 1963 ~

Some time into the Movie I went out to the Kitchen to bring us a Sanuel Adams 'Boston Lager' to sip...
On with the Movie, Pat was enjoying it tremendously, well it is good and silly and funny and so well done

~ Playing at the 'El Pato Theater' on Friday ~

Then it came to the Intermission, not as long as the actual one in the Theater but I headed out to the Kitchen
I popped each of us a nice sized Bowl of 'Hot Buttered Popcorn' and it was as good as you could get at the Show
On through another Hour and a Half of Madness and it was over, thank you so much! a Sitting Ovation Due!

Then it was about her heading Home time but we started talking about the old Homes in my latest Video
I wanted to show her how I traveled through the Kansas City Streets on Google Maps to get the Screenshots
Just like driving down the Streets then looking right left or behind to get the right view
She wants to try it to look at some of the places she wants to see again, some of that and that ended the Afternoon

~ A Screenshot of Google Maps Street View before Cropping ~

And then the Day's Finale... Some more of my T-Day Turkey and Dressing a glass of Wine and off to Dreamland
All Missions accomplished and a better Day than the last few have been, hoping for many more

~ Thanksgiving Day ~
~ Picked some Peppers ~ Made Salsa ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Picked Peppers fron the Pot in the Kitchen ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Thursday Morning on T-Day and not feeling like celebrating at all, still have that bellyache
But not feeling as bad as Tuesday or Wednesday so maybe the worst is all over, first thing took a Dizzy Pill
Then when I went to make Coffee I saw a flash of red on the Pepper Plant in the Kitchen, then several more
I planted those two Mexibell Pepper plants inside in an Aerogarden on July 27th, they did well at first
Then they were gettng too big for the Garden so I moved them outside September 17th seemed to do OK out there
Then when the Weather started to get chilly I moved them back inside to the Kitchen on October 29th
And they seem to have been doing good, some peppers growing but not getting very big
But when they start turning red that means they are past ready to be picked unless you want them fully ripe
So I picked all Five and now have to find something to cook with them... or grind up to freeze

So what for the Holiday? Have my Turkey and Dressing all ready but just not in the Feasting mood
Maybe I can get hungry later in the Day and have a Feast? I doubt it... but we shall see

About mid Morning I got really sleepy, that happened Wednesday also, after I took the first Dizzy Pill
Felt like crawling back in Bed but resisted and kept going into a nothing much Day, just not feeling peppy at all
Later I made some Turkey Gravy from Turkey Fat, Drippings and Chicken Broth, set it aside
Then decided to make some Salsa with those little Peppers... And I had one of my own red ripe Tomatoes left
I diced up the Peppers and Tomato, then half a Sweet Onion, and a couple Cloves of Garlic, into the Bowl
Then some Cumin, Cilantro a dash of Malt Vinegar, I think that was all, anyway... Presto... Salsa Picante!

~ Mexibells ~ Tomato ~ Garlic ~ Sweet Onion ~ Salsa ~

Later then for Dinner, I cut the meat off a Turkey Leg, dished up some of my Dressing, poured on the Turkey Gravy
Took that back to the TV, managed to eat about half of the plate before giving up and hitting the Sack

OK, Friday and I have to run over for my follow up appointment with my Primary Doctor
And see if I can have any fun after that on this dreary looking day... OH! I have a Movie Date with Pat this afternoon! HAH!

~ Twas the Day before Thanksgiving ~
~ A Recuperating Day ~ A Little Bit ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Tuesday in the ER ~ And about Six Needle Pokes ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Wednesday, dark, drab, cloudy and cold... I have had all the Winter I want and it just started
Had a fair night after my first get up of the Night when I still wasn't feeling so hot
Went to bed at 9 p.m. Woke up once and then slept until 7 a.m. Rare for me, usually it's 5 a.m.

Woke up and got up still not feeling so good, still dizzy and that belly ache from the Day before
But I poured my Apple Juice, put the Coffee on and did my Morning stuff on the Computer
Then headed to the Price Chopper, needed a few things and also the Prescription the Doc gave me
And surprize, it cost less than $5 with my Prescription plan, so much stuff is out of sight now

So, Afternoon crept in, several things to do on the Phone, Doctor appointments and all, finally back now to the ER Saga
I left off on the Tuesday Blog what happened after I was laying on the floor and had called 911
I waited to hear something coming down the Hiil, then heard sirens and Motor noise and a knock on the Door
I yelled out that it was open and then Two nice girls came in, then a Policeman and later a couple Firemen
Told then what happened and that I could not stand up and they helped me into a chair and started plugging things in

After a bit of testing they asked if I wanted to go to the Hospital, I said whatever you think, but maybe I should
So they loaded me onto the Cart, out the Door into the Ambulance and away we went, taking the long way again
They go on the Interstate, but my way to North Kansas City is quicker and shorter but I didn't get to tell them in time

And on the way... One Tech hooked me up to an IV, and was checking other stuff all along the way
She said my Blood Pressure was OK but Heart rate really fast... yeah I could feel that,
Finally that long ride and we were there, they wheeled me to a Room, then off the Cart and onto the Bed
Then all kinds of Questions, Tubes and Machines hooked up and a lot of Tests including into the CT Room for a Scan

Then people in and out for this and that, then the Doctor and his questions, went on for two Hours
At last about 8 p.m. the Doctor came back in, Heart checked OK, no signs of Stroke, Said inner Ear Problem most likely
Gave me a prescription for a 'Dizzy Pill' (Meclazine), said to check with my Primary Doctor in a couple Days

Then they wheeled me to the Waiting Room and left me adrift... I called my friend Pat to see if she could help
Sure, she said she would head right over, Showed up, I climbed in her Truck, said hello to her Dog Lilly
And then we tooled back to Parkville chatting all the way, then back home she came in for a little chat catch-up

We talked for a while, then she headed up the Hill and I headed off to bed about 9 p.m. In no mood for any more of Tuesday
Now it is Thursday Morning... Turkey Day, and I'll take a Dizzy Pill and then try to get this Holiday over with

~ Ever Onward and Upward! ~

~ My Second Day of Thanksgiving ~
~ Unpleasant Trip to the ER ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ North Kansas City Hospital ~ Emergency Room Entrance ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Hey, a Spring Time Morning... 48 Degrees and Rain Showers coming they say, well nothing I have outside now needs it
No plans except I need to run over to Office Max for some Printer Ink, then later make some Turkey Dressing
Also need to trot over to North Kansas City Hospital Quest Lab for a PSA test today or Tomorrow
And then I'll probably have to get another of those Ouch!... 'Lupron Shots' in the Hip next Wednesday

Off again to the Price Chopper in the dreary pre-rain Day to get my Lottos and a few things for Dressing
Back again to again scratch off no Winners, getting close to Pay Day and my Bank needs an infusion
On to a very slow Day and not feeling all that well anyway, Dizzy again and stomach discomfort on top of that<

But I started on the Turkey Dressing anyway, had to stop every now and then go sit down at the TV
Finally got the Dressing into the Oven for awhile, when it looked good, out to cool on the Table
Later wrapped it in Foil and into the Fridge for whenever, on to the Afternoon and my Margarita

~ Turkey Dressing for Several Meals ~

Sipped my Margarita and got some Crackers and Cheese for a Snack, didn't feel much like eating
Then finished my Crackers and Cheese and a glass of Wine, feeling worse and decided to lie down awhile at 4 p.m.
Woke up at 5 p.m. still not good, decided to just go to bed, went in to turn off the Computers
Got one turmed off, felt really dizzy, headed to the Door and fell flat on the Floor in the Hall... Now what!
Didn't pass out, just fell, tried to get up and I couldn't, sort of crawled into the living Room
Thought if I was going to pass out I should unlock the Door and I managed to get over there and do that... Now what?
My phone was an the Coffee Table, managed to reach that, decided I better call 911 and did, then back on the floor to wait

So, that was about 6 p.m and quite a hassle after that, I need to post this Diatribe now, go get a cup of Coffee
And then finish my tale of woe on Wednesday's Blog... Ta Ta...

~ Turkey in the Oven Day ~
~ Bringing in the Cannas Day ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Grow Light Set-Up for the Pickling Pepper ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A quick catch up on my Computer stuff early Monday and then back to Gardening for a couple minutes
I thought the Pepper in the Pot I moved to the Shelf in the Living Room on Sunday needed more light
And I was ready to just give up on using the three Pod AeroGardens, the Timer died on one, the Air Punp on the other
But the Grow Lights still worked... I took them off the Bases and installed them on the Shelf for the Pepper

Now I am down to four AeroGardens, and Garden 4 is empty and waiting for another try
So three Days of subfreezing Mornings, time to bring the Cannas in for the Winter...
I have just been letting them stay out front for the Winter, I read you can overwinter the Rhizomes inside
I thought I would try that, maybe plant them out back and up on the Hill next Spring

~ Canna Rhizomes in the Pots ready to Overwinter ~

So it looked like a busy Day ahead at 10 a.m. or so, made a quick trip to the Price Chopper
And another one down the Hill to the Fast Stop to lose another $20, back home for Breakfast

Then... about 11 a.m. or so, Turkey Bird out of the Fridge and onto the Counter to warm up a little
Then into the Sink to trim and remove the stuff inside, tossed the Liver, I don't like that much
The Gizzard, Heart, Tail and Neck into a Pot to simmer away for some Dressing later...
The Oven on and set to 350, painted the Birdie with melted Butter, dusted with Poultry Seasoning
Then Breast side down and into the Oven at Noon to roast for an Hour and a half, then Flip Breast side up

~ Turkey after 1 1/2 Hours ~ Turkey after 3 Hours ~

Tuekey out of the Oven and looking good at 3 p.m. Set it out to cool to carve later
Then time for a Margarita, TV catch up, a sip of my libation and then I would trot out front to bring in a Pot
Those Pots are heavy, so I put one in the Pantry and sat back down for another sip or Three
Then every now and then I would go out and bring in another, at last all Five in the Pantry, heavy work all done

Finally time to cut up the Turkey and put it away, carved it up in big Sections to store in Fridge and Freezer
Left out one big Leg for Dinner, pretty tasty but not the best I have done, needed a bit more seasoning

Now the Giblets are left in the Pot with all that Broth, need to dice it up and make some Dressing
Then all set for Turley dinners for the next couple weeks, what do I buy all that food for anyway?

Now what's for today? Oh... Tuesday, need to head over to Office Max for some Printer Ink...
Then print a DVD Case Lable and send the DVD to a Nature Sanctuary Friend... Tally Ho!

~ 27 Degrees Suday Morning... Another 'Freeze' to Start ~
~ One more Winter Day of many to Come ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Cucamelon Vines now past the Grow Light ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

OK, first thing, I put Bob's Email on my BLOG, finished the Blog and posted that to Facebook
Then I added the Email to my 'Famous Guests Page' and uploaded that to my Web Site
The usual checks on my regular Computer activities while I had my Juice and Coffee, then the rest of the Morning Routine

Next catch up Photos of the Cucamelon Vines and the Micro Tomatoes, they seem to be going great now
I tried planting some Marigold Seeds in a Pot on Friday, don't know what they will do, will try another two Pots later

~ First Blooms on the Micro Tomatoes ~

Some Raisin Oatmeal Cookies and a Glass of Milk and off to win my Fortune, it wasnt there
Back then to Edit some more Photos for my next proposed Video, just can't get a real interest in that yet
And so I dropped that and on into a Sunny but chilly Afternoon for some more Indoor Gardening

Some serious thinking then... Looks like I made another mistake, nothing so unusual about that
When I saw the 'Micro Tomato' Seeds online, I assumed thy were a dwarf Plant like the 'Mighty Mini' Tomatoes
I planted the Minis in my Three Pod Garden and they worked out OK there, didn't produce much though
So when I got my Micro Tom Seeds I planted them in Three Pod Gardens and they outgrew the 10 Inch Grow Light height
I took those plants out and trashed them, then tried them in my Six Pod Garden, with a bit more height
That didn't work either, when one got too tall I put it in a Seven Pod Garden and it is now up to the Grow Light there

~ The Micro moved earlier to Garden 5 ~ The Micro to move to a Pot ~

So what to do next, another kookie Idea, transplant the Micro in the Six Pod Garden to a Pot, decided to try that
I had a Pot full of Soil I had planted earlier that never Germinated, so I took that to the Kitchen and planted the Micro
Then I sat it on the Bottom Kitchen Shelf, moved the Pickling Pepper in the Pot there to the Living Room

~ The Micro now in the Kitchen Pot ~ The Pickling Pepper in the Living Room ~

That Project finished for the Day, mixed a Margarita and then... what to dream up for Dinner later
That Freezer and Fridge stuffed as always, so much good stuff... hard to decide which ones to dig out and Heat up for TV Time
Well I decided on some Chicken and mashed Taters... And some wlted Lettuce to go alongside, that filled the Bill
That was about it for Sunday, now let's get on with the new Week, need to bring in some Pots fom outside for the Winter

~ 28 Degrees Saturday Morning... That's a 'Freeze' isn't It? ~
~ Winter is Here my Dear! ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Another Saturday already? Ohhhhh... Time is really fleeting lately... What does that old Song say... 'Life is fading fast Away'
That is a beautiful old old Song but rather sad at that... They just don't make music like that anymore

And a peek at the Weather Report at 5 a.m. Saturday... right on the Button at 28 Degrees, Winter is really here now
Well, Friday with it's dark, cloudy, windy and cold was totally enough Winter for me and we were spoiled during this nice Fall

And then, catching up with my Email, read the Parkville 'Christmas on the River' Announcement
And who's Photo did they put on it? Well of course the best one they could find... Thank you so much!
They had the full Photo on their City Web Site earlier, one of my better River Photos here

~ The Parkville Email ~

~ My Original Photo ~

OK on to the Day and not much different than Friday, just puttering around inside... Ho Hum
I did some preliminary work on my proposed 'Saint Joseph Home' Video, finding Photos and resizing them
I lived there 36 Years and had lots of Videos and Photos but lost all the Videos, and lots of the Photos
But I have more than enough to make another boring Video, so many activities and events there though

I did look at my latest edit of the Parkville Video, saw another change I wanted to make, the aerial view of the Homes
I used the Google online map of the streets, I thought it would be better to use the 'Earth View'
So I got a Screen Shot, added marks of the Homes locations then the Schools locations on a second Shot
And then added those two shots to the Video to replace the original plain looking 'Maps'
Rendered it and then uploaded it again to Vimeo... How long will this change last now?

~ First Shot of the Home Locations ~

~ Replaced with the 'Earth Views' Shots ~

OK, now Sunday Morning. one degree colder than Saturday Morning, so the Freeze continues
And puttering around on the Computer first thing. a nice Email from a 'Van Fan'... He likes my Van Club web pages
So I sent him a reply, and hoped he didn't mind if I posted his Letter here, I do like to hear accolades!
And of course it will be added to my'Famous Guests Page' along with the many others who have written

~ My 'Guest Letters Page'~

"Hello Don,  Just a note to thank you for the great collection of photos from your van days
I was just a teen in the 70’s, and couldn’t afford a custom van, but I have made up for it lately
I am currently restoring a ’74 Custom Ford which made it thru the years intact, and still has it’s original interior and paint [ and mural ]
A few years ago, I restored a ’73 Ford, which I now drive daily

I am a big fan of the Supervan Movie, which seems to be the best film made, depicting the custom van era
Ironically, in 1981 I passed thru St. Joseph MO, and my buddy and I stayed overnight in the Pony Express Motel
Whenever I watch the movie, I always wonder if any of the various featured vans – still exist today?
I would imagine they are all long gone, but do you ever see any around?

I also wonder if they actually crushed the brown Ford [ Morgan] at the beginning of the movie?
It has a Kansas plate on it, so someone must have supplied their van for the movie [ and to be crushed?]
Anyway, thanks for sharing your photos and experiences online, I enjoy looking at your pages

Sincerely, Bob [ St. Paul, MN ]"

Ok, that's that for Saturday... and early Sunday Morning, excuse me whil I go add that Note to the FPG Page
And then get on with the rest of Sunday, got some more 'Home Video' editing to do whenever

And then... Bye the Bye... Speaking of 'Life is fading fast way'... I hope it lasts a few more years anyway

~ The Night of the Freeze Coming? ~
~ Got the Turkey I wasn't going to buy this Year ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Oh No! I bought another Turkey Bird! ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

And... Power out at 4:40 a.m. Friday Morning... Woke up just as I heard the Coffee Grinder whirr
It does that when the power is interrupted... I heard the noise and then the light went out on my Alarm Clock
I usually get up at 5 a.m. but what's the use if I have no lights and can't make Coffee or use the Computer
So I just lingered in Bed, wide awake, thinking... AHA! I have my little battery Lantern on my Night Table
And I can use the Laptop to start my Blog, so I got up, poured my Apple Juice and moved the Laptop to my Computer Room

I had the light from my Lantern to light my way, fired up the Laptop to start... Hey Dummy! You ain't go no Internet!
So I thought I would just start on my Blog anyway, post it if and when the Power came back on
And it was 5:15 a.m. Then... the Coffee Grinder whirred and the lights came on... Hallelujah!

So I started on my usual Morning Routine then, put the Coffee on, checked my Bank and Email
Finished and posted my Thursday Blog and was ready to start my Friday Diatribe...
I had embedded my new Video on the Friday Page, played a little of it, saw two things I wanted to correct
So, again I fired up my Video Editor and changed two Photos on the Video, then rendered it once again
And ready to upload it for the Third or Fourth time, will I ever be satisfied with it?
Well that 'Video' was mostly a bunch of edited still Photos and a lot more work than my usual 'all Video' Videos

10 a.m. and 47 Degrees and Cloudy and Windy and it was COLD out there, felt colder than 47 for sure
They sre saying 35 Degrees tonight and I bet we finally get that first Freeze, if not Friday, for sure Saturday
So off to the Price Chopper again in that dreariness... I needed Wine and Beer and a few other Goodies
I got a Gallon of my Vino Tinto, a 12 Pack of Boston Lager and headed for the Milk and Butter and Biscuits
And I had to pass by all the Turkeys stacked up and on sale... Again I was thinking 'my Freezer is stuffed'
And I didn't plan to buy a Turkey this year... like I also wasn't going to buy one the last Two Years
But I just could not resist and did buy a nice big fat one... T-Day here we come!

Then on to the Milk and saw Butter on about a Half Price Sale, had to grab that, then got my Milk and Biscuits
Headed back upthe Aisle to get my Apple and Lime Juice and Raisin Oatmeal Cookies and all done
Except for my Lottos and I got them at the Service Counter, back to scratch off Three Duds but one nice $40 Win... Yahoo!

OK, unloaded my stash and off to the Day, what's on the Agenda? One more Idea.... I was thinking of a 'My Memories' Video of Saint Joseph
But that is a lot of editing to make an entire new one, I could add some Photos to my original one
I watched my Video one more time, then did a couple edits and replaced the original on Vimeo with the latest
And that thinking I could add some addition Photos of Saint Joseph, decided to put that off until later

Then off to a just kick back Afternoon, first one more trip down the Hill to the Fast Stop
Chatting with the Clerk, he wanted to see some of my new Video on my Phone and was somewhat impressed
Then I traded in my $40 Winner Ticket, bought $20 more and then won $20 back, nice Winner Day for a change

That was the Day, dreary, Cold and Cloudy all day, getting dark early, just did my Cocktail, Snacks and Dinner
Some more old TV and off to some really strange Dreams... Where does this stuff come from?

Anyway, off to that Cold night and then see if we get that Freeze by Morning

~ Back again Working on my new Video ~
~ Last Warm Day of the Month? ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Jalapeno Peppers on AeroGarden 5 ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Thursday Morning, much Warmer and really Windy, just what Mike Thompson on Channel 4 said Wednesday Night
64 Degrees at 6:30 a.m. and heading to 78 this Afternoon, possibly a record High for the Day
Then Friday the Temp drops and takes a dive Friday night to that first Freeze and then a repeat on Saturday
That means Goodbye for the Flowers left Blooming out front, then on to Pot cleaning out Time

Checking my Bank online on Thursday Morning, a strange Deposit of $15... What is that? Says 'Facebook'
Well actually 'ACH DEPOSIT FRALEY FACEBOOK FACEBOOK01'... What is this, some kind of Scam?
So I checked again online, found several Posts reporting a 'Class Action Suit Payout'
Well, I don't remember asking to join any Class Action Suit but somehow I got included
At least that $15 will buy me Three free Lotto Tickets, maybe win that Big One with those?

So then, laundry in the Washer, a cup of Coffee and back to the new Video and maybe a finish today
And then I did work on that Video, almost straight through until 11 a.m. and it was finished, rendered and uploading

So I headed out for my Lottos, again only winning a single $5, in a losing streak all week
Then I watched my new Video on my TV with Vimeo on the 'Smart Hub', saw a couple minor things to touch up
Back to the Editor made my minor changes and rendered and uploaded again, looked good so I burned a DVD
Played that back one more time, well I guess that will do, pretty good considering the digging for Info I had to do


And just watching this Video again, found two more very minor things I wanted to change, so back to that Editor once again
Anyway Sigi, this Video is for me and Pat and any Family member that might run across it, not much interest for others
And Oh Oh, just got an Idea for another personal Video, kind of like this one... My Years in my Saint Joseph House

And now.. I'll post my Blog and get started on that next re-edit and I hope the last one for awhile

~ Ever Onward and Upward! ~

~ Still Working on my new Video ~
~ And Nothing much more for Wednesday ~ In a November Rut? ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Cucamelon Vines at the top of their Ladders ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Thursday Morning now, checking the Cucamelons first thing and they are still climbing
Vines at the top of their little 'Ladders' I constructed for them and reaching up through the Shelf above
Well there is a Hook above fastened to the Ceiling, will have to get my little Step Ladder out
Then tie a cord on that Hook, lead it down to the Shelf, see if the Vines want to keep on climbing then

~ Cucamelon Vines now at 42 Inches ~

And now back to Wednesday Morning, didn't write anything for my Blog Yesterday... what did I do anyway
Well I started again on my new Video and made some progress... and beginning to like it some
And for the subject, now getting close to the End, mainly where I lived the last 80 Years
Oh Oh.. just thought of something else to add, that will take some more time, well no hurry to finish anyway

Then I took a break around 10 a.m to go seek my Fortune and a tad more luck after two days of Zilch... a $5 Win
I had an appointment later at Platte City, so to while away the time I got back to my Video
And I got to the point where I wanted to take a look to see what I had so far, rendered and burned a Blu-ray DVD
Played that back on my New Samsung Blu-ray Player, Hey! looking good, I like it so far

Then it was time to head out to Platte City, was there in 25 Minutes, Ten Minutes there and I headed back
Time for my Afternoon libation and a TV Catchup and later some Dinner, sitting there and enjoying my View
Nice to be watching TV and seeing the Jungle thriving over in the Window, I have a Forest in my Parlor

~ Nice Garden View from my Futon ~

So that was about it for a busy Videoing Wednesday and now Thursday Morning heading back to the Video Editor again

~ Ever Onward and Upward! ~

~ Working on my new Boring Video ~
~ Nothing much more for Tuesday ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Working on my new Home Video ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Tuesday Morning, a surprise... I woke up at 5:01 a.m. Getting used to the Time change now?
I have been wide awake lately at 3:30 to 4 a.m. or so, and that's just a bit early for me to arise
I really wish that they would just leave the Clocks alone... Every Day and for all Year

So, Apple Juice, my Coffee, my Bank check, my Facebook check, my Email check, then finished my Blog
And not much to relate from a busy but boring Monday and so far (at 7 a.m.) prospects don't look much brighter for Tuesday
So I started again on my Home History Video, interesting project but tedious in obtaining Photos

Trying to find the Photos that fit my Idea, getting some from Street Views on Google Maps like my old KC Homes
And then editing them for quality and then changing them to a 1920 by 1080 aspect to fit the Video Frame
Finding, editing them and then adding them to the Video one Time Line at a time, working at it hours at a time

So I worked on that a few hours, had enoough of that by 11 a.m. Headed out for my Lottos and didn't find any Winnere
And then back home for a Breakfast at Noon then on into just a piddle around Afternoon... Where did my Garden time go?
Spent a little time making fresh Cole Slaw for Dinner, needed a Green Pepper, picked a Mexibell off the Plant in the Kitchen
Sure can't get a fresher one that that... Off the Plant, five feet to the Counter, trimmed and diced and into the Slaw!

Then it was just TV Time the rest of the whole Day, Smoked Chicken on a Bun and some of that Cole Slaw and it was Super!

And now Wednesday looks like about the same, same Weather, no Gardening, maybe some more Video stuff... and Off We Go!

~ Collected Marigold Seeds from Flowers ~
~ Worked on my new Video ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Marigold Seeds for another Experiment ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday Morning, just a tad warmer Morning at 44 but only going to 66 later, but 70s on Tuesday maybe
So what's for today, sure not much for Sunday, spent a lot of time looking for old Pictures I didn't have
I started taking Photos about age 12 but didn't get a lot of the Photos I want now for my new (Old) Video
I spent a lot of time Sunday trying to find the ones I wanted and did come up with a few
But that sure was a boring lot of time on the search and then editing the Photos I found

OK, what today and another Experiment... What are those little Black tipped Needles up there in the Pic?
Well I was readng online about Marigold Seeds and how easy to harvest them and then to save and plant
And I have several Pots where I planted things recently that didn't show up, so... Here we go again
Those Seeds didn't cost anything and those pots are already filled with Soil so... Away we go

So I didn't get around to planting any of those Seeds, just wasn't in a Gardening mood, I did work on my Video
I spent a lot of time just adding a bit more stuff, not as easy as just editing a complete Camera Video
Just finding, editing and then adding a still Photo at a time, takes a lot more time and I did get into it on Monday
There is just so much in my History that adding even a Photo at a time is tedious... Thought about just giving up on it

Anyway nothing else going on most all Day, the same old Routine Morning, then Afternoon and Evening
I did spend some time on making some Pasta Sauce, found some Tomato Puree in the Freezer from last Year
I thawed that out, simmered it down, added more good stuff and Spices and ended up with a tasty Sauce
I had a Smoked Bratwurst, dumped it in the Tomato Sauce to simmer up nicely, boiled some Spaghetti
Assembled a plateful of that concoction to go with my Evening Movie, nice, and more left for several more Meals
Always cook way too much more than I can eat, at least I don't starve around here

So now, halfway through November, and what's for Tuesday? Again not a clue, more on that Video? Nah... I am not eager for that
