~ New Years Eve 2017! ~
~ Feliz Aņo Nuevo a Todos ~

Wow! Waking up on New Years Eve Morning to a Temperature of 1 Degree at 6 a.m.
And then on to a Sunny Day with a High Temperature of all of 6 Degrees!, see what 'Global Warming' does!

So... what are we going to do on this frigid Day to celebrate the New Year, I can see Nothing but just exist
Well now, just had another nutty Idea... That Year long 2017 Video, is finished unless I add something Today
It is now at 55 Minutes long and 6.8 GB, too long for me to upload to Vimeo with my 'Plus-Plan'
I get to upload 5 GB a Week on my Plus Plan... It costs $20 a Month to upgrade to 'Pro' and not worth it to me
I have never made a Video yet that exceeded 5 GB until this one... and so... Decided to split into two Uploads
A good place would be in July in the Video, make an 'Intermission' and then make a second Upload of the last half

So that's a good Project for the Day... Wouldn't take much time, except for the new Renders of the two halves
When I decide later in the Day if nothing else needs to be added I can make a DVD Copy of the whole thing
Then I can watch the DVD on my TV from my DVD Player and also the Two Uploads on Vimeo from the Internet

Lookee Lookee! Temperature dropped to One Below ZERO Degrees at 8 a.m. Not my idea of the way to go... I want WARM!
Anyway I Started on splitting my Video... Made a Copy 'One' and Copy 'Two' of the entire Video
Then deleted the last half of Copy One and the first half of Copy Two after the Month of July on the Video
Next added an "Intermission' at the 'End' of Copy One and a new opening 'Intro' for Copy Two
And then the tedious process of Rendering both Copies and then later uploading them to Vimeo

Both Parts were finished by 11 a.m. and I started Rendering them, Part One done at 11:30 a.m.
On with Part Two and then off to the Price Chopper for my Lottos after warming up the Blazer, Temp up to 3 Degrees!
Well the Blazer was a bit optimistic, Thermo in there read 7 Degrees. then on to the ATM
Took $40 out of the ATM, Cashed in $15 worth of Winners, headed for Lotto Machine Two
Got my Lottos and headed back into that bitter Cold and back to my warm Hacienda
Got a Bottle of Glucerna to sip and worked my Lottos for a $5, $10 and $40 Win, not too shabby

And then I got a Call from Pat, nothing to do on New Years Day and wanted to come down to see my new Video
And just when I had wanted to show it to her, freshly finished and just the right Day to watch it

Speaking of which, when I got back the latest Render was done and I set it to upload to DropBox
Well that didn't work, only a 2GB Limit on Dropbox, have to find another way, 'One Drive' or 'Google Drive'?

OK, later... I tried One Drive, couldn't get the file uploaded, then tried Google, it wouldn't load either
So as of the moment I an stuck with no upload to Vimeo, just have my new revised DVD to play but that works fine

On with the rest of he Day, was thinking of another Turkey Dinner for later
Set out the makings for Dinner and then went back to the TV to check out my latest DVD of the Video
Well I thought I had it the way I wanted it but... One part again needed a bit more Music volume
And another Part needed the have the Volume turned down a bit, and then a boo-boo, one wrong Photo
That happened when I made Part One and Part Two, so back to the Editor to correct that and then Burn another DVD

And on finally to Dinner and finished out new Years Eve, I gave up and went to bed after that busy Day at 7:30 p.m.

~ Happy Day! ~ IBM Pay Day Early! ~
~ Another Dark Dreary Cold Day ~

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

Saturday Morning... Two Days of 2017 left to waste Money, lets get at it, will have a surplus in January
I still have several Hundred of my big Lotto Win in the Bank and I get that HUGE $3 Social Security raise too!
Today it looks like the COLD is back, 6 Degrees at 6 a.m. and a High of all of 22 for the Day
And even worse for Sunday and Monday, this 'Global Warming' is entirely out of control!

And so, time to head out into that COLD at 9 a.m. Price Chopper first, won $45, $25 Profit this time
Headed next down to the Fast Stop, cashed in, bought $30 more, this time only won $5... Phoooey!
Well that wasn't quite all, a bit later I needed a few Items at the Price Chopper, out in the Cold again
I got my Grocery Goodies, stopped by the Lotto Machine one more time, got $20 Worth, won back $15

Then back Home and headed to the Kitchen to start something for Dinner
I put out a big Turkey Leg to thaw and later hot up... and made some fresh Cole Slaw to go with it
And that was about it for the Day, just back to the TV and News and Videos and later Movies

~ More added to my 2017 Video ~
~ Then more Corrections to the Add On ~

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

~ Opening on my July 2017 Garden Video ~ Copied from the Video ~

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

So, Friday Morning, first thing, I finished my Thursday Blog and posted it
And then started on my 2017 Video again, came up with an Idea watching my old Videos Thursday
I made a nice Garden Video in July and thought I would add that, and not all that easy to do
But I started on it, had to open a space in the Time Line in July to add it
I had to move all the other Photos and Videos to make the Space and then retime all of them
But I got it done, I think it looks good and then I was ready to do my Puzzles at 7:30 a.m.

OK... 8:30 a.m. Brrrrrr... 16 Degrees... Computer stuff done, time to do my clean-up and get this show on the Road
Clean-up done, Monitor hooked up, time to go visit Navru for some Winner Lottos
Warmed up the Blazer, jumped in and headed up the Hill and then down the Hill to the Fast Stop
Some Chit Chat and some lottos and back home to scratch off $15 in winners, a loss already
Went back to the Price chopper, bought more and lost more, only won $15 back again
But I still have a hunk of that $500 Winner Ticket sitting in my Bank for a cloudy Day

And on through another dreary Cold Day, boring... What to do, decided to make another test copy of my Video
That took a while, getting longer every Day looks like, that mean more boring too? Well we'll see
I put the Copy on an external Hard Drive instead of Burning another DVD, quicker and saved a Blu-ray Disk too
Poured a Glass of Sangria, hooked the HD up to the Living Room Computer, got comfy with my Wine and Nibbles
On with the Video, looking good for the most part... but the music needed to be a little louder in one part
OK until I got to the part where I just added my July Garden Video... Oooops, It shows the Stair Planter finished
And the Photos I had of it being installed were later in the Time Line... so back to the Editor again

First turned the volume up a little in the Video that needed it, then moved the Planter Photos back in the Time Line
Then it showed the Planter being installed before the July Video shows the plants growing in it
So I set it to Render all over again, then make a copy on the Hard Drive and try another test

And later once again, latest Render finished, copied the .MP4 File to the external Hard Drive
Poured another Glass of Vino and went back to the TV to watch it again all the way through
This time no glaring errors to ruin my Day and it looks like it is complete unless something interesting happens

On to another Turkey, Dressing and Cranberry Dinner and some more Music to end the Day

~ New Years Eve Sunday ~

~ Big Event of the Day... Biscuits and Sausages ~
~ A bit warmer for Thursday ~

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

Well now that looks a litle better... 15 whole Degrees at 6:30 a.m. and heading all the way up to 30 later
And another 'Warm' Day for Friday and then back to the super Cold, phooooooey!
Plans for the Day? You kidding, just have to pick up my Slacks from the Cleaners and buy a few Lottos
I did have a Cardio Appointment for Friday but it was at 8 a.m. during Rush Hour to get there
So I called and rescheduled for 10 a.m. next Tuesday, a much better time

Thinking about my Video again, just a few Days left for something to add of any Interest
Nothing in sight for now so it may be finished as it Is, might burn one more DVD to check for any errors
OK, this is my Blog up to 6:45 a.m. Thursday, now to work my Crossword and Jumble Puzzles...

8:30 a.m. Out of the Shower, into clean Clothes, feeling great to start the Day
Hooked up the Heart Monitor, now monitoring and all's well, that is until I lose my $20 on Lottos
Out to Warm up the Blazer and off to the Price Chopper at Nina Klock for my Lottos
First stop the Price Chopper for my Lottos, then the Cleaners, picked up my Pants and headed Home
Only won $5 and still thinking of Breakfast, thought some Biscuits and Sausage would be nice
Back to the Price Chopper to trade in my $5, buy $15 more Tickets and head for the Meat Department
Picked up a nice pack of bulk Pork Sausage, then over to pick up some Biscuits, on sale...
Then a stop on the way to the Cashier for some Sausage Gravy for later Breakfasts

Back home to scratch off $15 in Winners this time and then off to fix some Sausage and Biscuits
Put the Biscuits into the Oven, made 7 Sausage Patties and fried them up while the Bicuits baked
Biscuits out of the Oven, Sausages out of the Pan, layed out one Biscuit and Sausage for breakfast
And the rest in the Freezer for several Breakfasts to come... and then had at that Sausage Biscuit
Hey Hey, that was a tasty Choice for a rare healthy Breakfast, have to to that again!

~ Biscuits and Sausages ~ Yum Yum! ~

And I guess that was about all of Thursday... Same-O Afternoon and Evening...
Looks like this place shuts down a little after Noon now a days... Oh well...
Let's see what we can stir up for Friday now...

~ Two more Days to New Years Eve ~

~ Some Super Cold -6 Degrees at 6 a.m.! ~
~ Nothing much to report on Wednesday ~

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

~ Candles still Celebrating Christmas ~

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

Mein Gott Im Himmel! Checked the Weather at 6 a.m. Says it is -6 Degrees out there!
But later it is going way up to 18 Degrees and will be partly Sunny... Wheeeee!
And I have three errands to run out in that Cold, Need a Gallon of Vino Tinto for afternoon sips
I want to try for that Haircut again... and I want to stop by State Farm Insurance for a free 2018 Calendar
They have been giving me a nice big Calendar since about 1975 when I first Insured my Van with them
They used to mail them out but now you have to go by and pick one out... anyway it's free

Well now, a couple years ago I ran across an old report from my IBM Supervisor and posted it on Facebook
They reposted it today, I copied it off and updated the Photo with my Retirement Photo
Ain't I purdy there? and look what he said about my Performance!

~ That 'Super Star' Contest ~

Morning Routine done and then out the Door at 9 a.m. in Bright Sun and Bitter Cold at 1 Degree
I have endured better combinations of Weather, anyway started up the Blazer, back inside to wait
All warmed up, I headed back out, into the Blazer and up the Hill and then to the Price Chopper
In to get my Lottos and then a 'Buenos Dias' to Luis... and around the corner to pick up jug of Sangria
Then out and around another corner to the Shear Palace and got my long postponed Hair Cut
Next out and past the City Hall to Hiway 9 and South a Block to State Farm Insurance, got my Calendar
Then on Home the back way, down Hiway 9 and back up Bell Road and we were Home to scratch off a single $5 Win

Some Cranberry Sauce on Buttered Toast and then bored all over again, headed down to the Fast Stop
Traded for more Tickets, this time won $10... What the heck, went back again and this time won $30
So Total Wins for the Day was $45... Figger that out for me, was there any profit? I doubt it

And into the Afternoon, clear up to 11 Degrees... What next? Anything of interest to do... Hmmmmm...
Nope, nuthin but the Cold Afternoon and Movies and Popcorn and Vino Tinto until Dinner
Then Dinner, some more Music from Andre Rieu and off to bed and a slightly better night

~ Three more Days to New Years Eve ~



~ Tuesday, December 26, 2017 ~
~ New Years Eve Next on the Agenda ~
~ And a rare 'Haircut Day' ~

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

~ More White Christmas? ~

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

Holidays gone for a few Days, back to the Hum Drum and Ho Hum... But a couple plans first thing
Need to drop off something at the Cleaners, then finally get a haircut, been putting that off
Then stop by the Price Chopper for a couple Items and restock my loser Lotto pile

And Ohhhhhhhhh! A look at the Weather... 8 Degrees at 6 a.m. I sure don't like that
Kinda chilly sitting at the Computer catching up my Blog and stuff, have to nudge that Thermo a bit
Another peek at the Weather forecast... Oh No! A top of all of 16 Degrees for the whole Day!
Well it's that darn 'Global Warming' doncha know...

Checking my latest experiments in the Kitchen, the Pineapple Plant looking pretty good
Doesn't look like the 'Rose' in the Potato is doing anything, just a Tree and some Weeds popping up
Well I didn't need another Rose Bush anyway, just something to play with

~ One Experiment looking Good ~ The Other not so Good ~

Then back to the Computer to add a few more Christmas Photos to my new Video and it is almost finished
It looks like it is more of a Christmas Video than a whole Year Video with all the Christmas things I added
But then this has been the Happiest Christmas I have had recently, lots of things going on

Then out in that Cold to warm up the Blazer and head to the Cleaners and the Shear Palace for that Haircut
And surprize! We got Snow again... The Day after Christmas... So I waited a little longer for the Windshield to clear
I put the Blazer in 4WD, first time in a long time, but that Hill looked slick, and away we go<

Well I needed that 4WD on that Hill and on the Street too, more Snow than the last time
So first to the Barber Shop, and they were closed? Why... extending the Holiday or too cold?
Next dropped off some Dockers at the Cleaners and next door to the Price Chopper
Got my Stuff and my Lottos and headed back, still 9 Degrees and COLD! Then scratched off only a $5 Winner

And then what? Decided to burn another DVD to check out my Video, took a while to Render, 50 minutes long now
I finished the Time Line so it could play the whole thing, finally done and I played it back on the TV
Then found several boo boos, one song was not loud enough, another was a bit too loud
And there was one spelling error in one Sub Title, so I went back to the Editor and corrected those
So now it is pretty well finished except for the Four Days of December we have left
If anything of interest happens I can add a photo to the timeline and render the whoe thing again

So other than that, it was another very quiet and very cold Day... Just another Turkey Dinner later
And some Movies and Music to keep me up until 7 p.m. when I just plain gave up and hit the sack

~ Counting Down to New Years Eve ~

~ $175 in Lottos wins for the Holiday! ~
~ On my Christmas Day ~

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

~ Christmas Eve on my TV ~

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

And it was a long Evening of Music and Videos Christmas Eve, even had the Scenes on my Computer Monitor
It was quite a Festive Evening and so I was ready for a very quiet Christmas Day

~ Video playng on my TV and The Computer Monitor ~

6:30 a.m. on a Cold Christmas Morning... 17 Degrees and only going to a top of 29 and no improvement in sight
No plans to go out and fight that Cold except maybe one foray to find my Lotto Fortune
But where? The Price Chopper is closed for Christmas, maybe the Fast Stop or the Minit Mart!

Decided to head down to the fast Stop for Lottos, it was a slow Morning for Navru, not many Customers
I got my Lottos and then we had a chit chat for over an hour, mostly Tech stuff, some Holiday stuff
Enough of that and back home to scratch off $35 in Wins, Ammo to go back to try again

And so I went back to try again and that time I won a nice $40 Ticket, more ammo for another try
And back once more (I promise) and this time I won a nicer $100 Ticket... Merry Christmas Day to Me!

~ Santa delivered on Christmas Day! ~

On into another cold and dreary (outside) Day, nothing much to do except decide what's for Dinner
And that would be more Turkey, Dressing and Cranberry Sauce... Yum Yum, even if repitious
I put out a big Turkey Wing and a hunk of Dressing to thaw and then on to the TV... What's on?
Another old Movie I found on Amazon Prime Movies, I ditched Netflix and Hulu, stil more Movies than I need
While I was watching I got an idea, my friend hadn't come for his Gift Christmas Tree, what about that?
Well if he doesn't want it, I can use it, thought of moving it to the Living Room, found a spot
Next to the Table with my Computer Monitor, neat corner, I moved it there, looks OK and out of way of the Door

~ That 'Gift' Pine Tree now in the Living Room ~

And then on into the Evening and Dinner Time, hotted up my Turkey and Dressing, poured a Glass of Sangria
Back to the TV to finish my Movie and then again the Finale with more Andre Rieu Music...
After then... Time to wish a 'Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night'

~ End of a Quiet Christmas Day ~



~ Sunday, December 24, 2017 ~
~ Christmas Eve ~
~ On my Eleventh Day of Christmas ~

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

~ It's 'Time' for Christmas ~

~ The Twelve Days of Christmas ~

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

OK, now it's Christmas Eve all Day on Sunday for me, what else can I add to my Video?
No plans, just go with the flow and see what happens on another Winter Day
AHA! They say we are having 'llght Snow', I'll have to take a peek out there
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..... 17 Degrees and yeah, look at the White Christmas developing!

~ A White Christmas Eve in Parkville ~

Well I had to get that Snow Photo and then post it on Facebook and then add it to the Timeline on my Video
And that Video is getting longer every Day, will anyone want to watch it besides me?
I have Christmas Day to add and after that the Six Days before New Year's Eve and then the Finale
And the Finale is already on the Timeline, just have to cover those Six Days for anything to add
One thing to add is my absolute last Medical appointment of the year on December 29th

Checking the Temp again before heading out for my Lottos... Brrrrrr... 21 Degrees and a high of 29!
And the next Ten Days! 29-32-21-24-32-34-25-22-20-29 And those are the Highs, I am heading for Arizona...
Out to warm up the Blazer and baby! it IS Cold Outside! Then headed to the Price Chopper
Needed Milk and Juice and Buns and wanted Lottos, don't need them, just want them
The Store was crowded like it was on Saturday, last minute Christmas shoppers, they close on Christmas
Got my stuff, headed Home and inside for the rest of the Day... And only won one $5 Lotto

~ Some Snow on my Spruce Trees ~

And then what else? I needed to think of something different for Dinner, had Turkey for Three Days
So I decided to have some Beef Stew, had some still in the Freezer, maybe more Turkey on Christmas

And I got a Pineapple on that last trip to the Price Chopper, needed to dice that up for later
So I cut off the Top, peeled and sliced and diced and stored in the Fridge for Nibbles
And as usual that makes another Pineapple Top to plant, so I brought in a Pot amd planted it

~ One more Pineapple Top Planted ~

Then on to Christmas Eve... Watched another Old Western in the Afternoon with a Glass of Pat's gift Wine
With some of her Snack Mix she brought over for Nibblea along with an old Clint Eastwood Movie
And then deep into celebrating Cristmas Eve, sipping Wine, another Movie, then watching my Christmas Videos
And finally winding up the Evening with several Concerts with Andre Rieu, quite a festive Evening all by myself

~ A very nice Christmas Eve ~ Tomorrow a quiet Christmas Day! ~

~ A Busy Day ~ Before Christas Eve ~
~ On my Tenth Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Lighting the Way to Christmas ~

~ My Christmas Trees are Out Front ~

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

Well now... I can't believe this Day! It is 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and I am just starting my Blog
I usually do that at 5 a.m. or whenever I get up, what's the Deal today?
Well I did finish and post Friday's Blog, worked my Crossword and Jumble, checked the Bank and my Mail
Took my Shower earler than usual so I could hook the Heart Monitor back up
And then I just took off for distant parts to go get my Lottos, first to the Fast Stop
Got my Lottos and then had a chat with Navru, he was playing Christmas Songs on the Blue Tooth Speaker I gave him
He was playing 'Feliz Navidad', and I did a Lip Sync along with that to his Music
Then I showed him the Lip Sync I did at Santa Trek, he watched the whole thing and enjoyed my attempt
Then he came out from behind the Counter and took a bunch of Photos with his Phone Camera of us
And he followed me out to the Blazer still taking his Photos, then sent them to me on 'whatsapp'

~ Navru's Photo Escapade ~

So then I worked his Lottos for a $10 Win, went back to the Minit Mart to trade... and won $15
Then back to the Fast Stop to trade that in, get more Tickets and more chat and only wn back $5

Back home and a very late Breakfast, finished a Sack of Pat's gift Cookies with a Glass of Milk
I fed the Cat some Turkey trimmings and then started playing with my 2017 Video and worked ALL DAY on it
And I added what I thought were some interesting things, now all finished up to Christmas Eve... Tomorrow
So now, 5:40 p.m. Time to get out in the Kitchen and whup up some Dinner and catch up with my TV Junk

And that I did, a big juicy Turkey Wing and Dressing with Gravy and a dish of Cranberries, quite ample
Back to the TV to finish out the Day with another old Western Movie... And 'Good Night Irene' once more

~ Sunday and Christmas Eve Tomorrow ~

~ Cardiologist Appointment ~ For What? ~
~ On my Ninth Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Deck the Halls ~

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

AHA! Friday Morning and not as Cold as they predicted, they were saying 20s and it was 31 Degrees at 6 a.m.
But plenty Cold for that long ride over to Liberty for that Cardio Appointment, last Doctor Visit of the Year
Pat wants to come over for a Visit in the Afternoon so I will give her a call when I get back
No other Plans except to clean up that Mess I made Roasting the Turkey and making Dressing

Headed out at 9:30 a.m. Plenty of time to get to my Appointment over in Liberty, why there?
They have two Offices closer to my Place but they said it had to be at this one
I have been to Liberty many times and have seen the 'Flintlock Road' I was supposed to turn right on
But this time I saw it and passed before I could turn, so I tried to turn back and got lost south of the Hiway
So I ran around in Circles, finally got turned around right and reached the Office Five minutes late

~ Northland Cardio Building in Liberty ~

I checked in, ushered in by the Nurse, she went through her Routine then I waited for the Doctor

~ Waiting for the Doctor ~

And waited, finally he came in, told me why I was there, because of the Atrial Fibrillation during Surgery
They wanted to monitor my Heart to see if that was the only time the problem had shown up
We had quite a talk about my History of any Heart problems, really none but he insisted we do the Monitor
So he said the Nurse would be in to install the Monitor and also make another Appointment... Oh No!
Well this one would be simple, an Electrocardiogram back at Notth Kansas City Hospital
They aready did a Heart Stress Test there which came back fine, now why this? He needs to buy a new Mercedes maybe

~ Monitor Patches and Transmitter ~ Sends to Phone ~ Where the Patches Go ~

So the Nurse came back with a Pack of Goodies, Transmitter, Phone and a supply of Batteries and Electrode Patches
Then she stuck the Patches on my Chest, the Transmitter on my Belt, the Phone on my Pocket
The Patches catch the Heart Beats, the Transmitter sends to the Phone, the Phone sends them to 'Medicomp'
Medicomp sends the Reports to the Doctor... At the End of 30 Days I send the Pack back and FINISHED... (hopefully)

OK... GOOD! That done I headed back Home, back at 12:30 p.m. I called Pat, she said she would head down at 1 p.m.
And knock, knock, at 1 p.m. and Pat came in with two huge Sacks of Christmas Goodies, such a display of benevolence!

~ Pat's Christmas Extravaganza! ~

Cake, Crackers, Cheese Ball, Veggies, Cookies, Snackers Mix, Popcorn, Chocolate Bridge Mix and Wine!
I had to get a Photo,then we took some of the Goodies to the Living Room and had a Fun Party with Snacks and TV
A good time and that lasted until late Afternoon, time for my small Gifts. A Roasted Turkey Breast
And a hefty sample of my home made Turkey Dressing that did turn out rather tasty at that
And then Pat headed up the Hill, walking in the Cold, her choice... More than I would attempt
Or even could Do, that Hill would be tough for me now, I climb it in the Blazer with the Heater on

Then time to hunt up something for Dinner and it didn't take long to find some, some Turkey and Dressing out of the Fridge
On a plate, into the M/W to heat, a piece of Buttered Toast witn Cranberry Sauce, yeah, sumptuous!

Well, starting out not such a fun Day seeing the Doctor about a very nice Afternoon and Evening with Pat

~ Saturday Tomorrow ~ Two more Days til Christmas! ~

~ Roasting my Christmas Turkey ~
~ On my Eighth Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Felliz Navidad! ~

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

Looks like this Blog has developed into a Daily Weather Report, been starting the Day with a report on the Cold
Well today looks a lttle better to start, 44 Degrees out there at 5:30 a.m. But a Top later of only 52
Anyway that's a lot better than what they say for Friday... Back to the Brrrrrrrrs in the 20s

And it looks like a fairly busy Day ahead for Thursday, looks like Turkey Roasting Day
The Turkey has been brining in the Fridge all Night and I put a half a loaf of Bread out to dry for Dressing
But I needed to take a trip back to the Price Chopper for Celery and Onions and Wine and what else?
Well Coffee.. and I forgot to get that, but got my $20 Worth of Lottos and won $515.00 back!

~ Nice Christmas Present from the Missouri Lottery ~

So I unloaded my Stuff at Home and then headed back to the Price Chopper to cash in my $515 worth of Tickets
And then I headed down to the Fast Stop to tell Navru about it and bought $20 More Tickets
And then back home... Scratched off another $55 in Wins, total Wins for the Day $570.00!

Navru said he has sent me a Photo of his new Christmas Tree so I copied it from 'whatsapp'
Looks pretty good when all assembled and lit up nice and bright

~ Navru's new Christmas Tree ~

Getting down to the Day's business at Noon-Thirty... Turkey out of the Fridge and the Cooler and into the Sink
Then some Rinsing and Trimming, then Drying, then painted with Butter, dusted with Poultry Seasoning
And into a preheated Oven, Breast side down, I do it the right way, an Hour and a half then Flip it
That flip is touchy to do but the result is worth it, Breast not overdone and Back not underdone

After an Hour and a Half... Beep Beep Beep, time to flip the Bird, took the Tray out of the Oven
The Back looking good... Using my BBQ Tongs on one end and a Hot Pad on the other I carefully rolled el Pavo over
I basted it with the Drippings and Butter in the bottom of the Pan and back into the Oven again
And then after about Four Hours counting basting and flipping time the Birdie out of the Oven to rest

~ Turkey waiting for Carving and Enjoying! ~

Then coasting into the Afternoon, working on the Dressing Prep, mince the Onions, slice the Celery
Simmer with Butter, add Eggs, Spices, Turkey Stock, some diced Turkey Meat, then the dried and cubed Bread
Stir well and bake a Half Hour or so and Wah Lah! Delicious Dressing to go with the Delicious Bird

~ Some Super Dressing to go with the Turkey ~

That was it for my Christmas Cooking of the Day, a glass of Wine and back to the TV to rest and watch
Then about 6 p.m. back out to the Kitchen to carve and make Turkey Broth and Store the rest
No Turkey Dinner to end the Day, just scooped up a plate of that Dressing, full of Turkey Meat anyway
Very Tasty and the first Taste of the Turkey Dinners that will last until Christmas and after

~ Hey the Turkey's Ready! ~

~ A Cold Dreary Wednesday ~
~ On my Seventh Day of Christmas ~

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

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

Brrrrrrr again, 33 Degrees out there and worse coming on Friday when I have to head to Liberty
Seems I have had a harder time this Year than ever adapting to these Winter Temps...
Looked like a long nothing day again, started my Lotto trek out in the Cold to the Price Chopper
Bought $20 worth of Tickets, won $15 Back, BAH! Humbug! Oh well, it's only money and I am about broke for the Month

Couldn't settle for that $15 so I headed down to the Fast Stop, and spent about an Hour there talking to Navru
Traded for some more Tickets, back Home to win back only another $15, what am I doing wrong?

That was all of that Cold Morning and on into another nothing Afternoon, Ho Hum all over again
So let's see now, Four more Days until Christmas, maybe add a couple more Photos before Christmas Day
And after Christmas Five more Days to add the final Days of the Year 2017 if anything of Note happens
Then on December 31st I can add the Finale I already made to the Timeline and upload my Year 2017 Video... Hurrah!

OK, Nothing to do? I checked the Turkey defrosting in the Fridge, felt ready to Brine, so something to do
I mixed the Brine and poured it into my Cooler, put the Turkey in the Sink, unwrappd and took the Giblets out
The Giblets in the Pan to simmer for Chicken Stock and the Turkey into the Brine and then into the Fridge

~ Turkey Brining before Roasting ~

So I added that 'Turkey in the Brine' Photo to my Timeline, getting closer to the End every Day
And maye a few more on Thursday, planning to Roast the Turkey and make Dressing
It looks like I just might have Turkey Dinner Four days before the Traditional one on CHristmas Day

And that was all for the busy Morning and early afternoon and on to the rest of the Day...

~ Wednesday ~ Turkey Brining ~ Roasting Thursday ~

~ Furnished Christmas Trees for Two Friends ~
~ On my Sixth Day of Christmas ~

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

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

Tuesday, Tuesday... What can we do on Tuesday? Monday was a fairly nice Day and I found a few things to do
I usually start out this time of Day with no ideas whatever but later they sometimes slip in
So let's see what may pop up to keep me out of the nut house today

Well the Weather looks about the same as Monday, not too bad, a little cooler on Wednesday, Thursday so-so
But looking ahead to Friday they say the Cold Weather returns and of course I have an appointment that Day
A Cardiology Appointment and way over in Liberty and I have no idea what they have in mind

And, as usual just thinking... I got another Christmas Video Idea, my old Video of 'Christmas on Main Street'
I opened my Editor, added the old Video to the Timeline, cut some of the excess time, it was kinda long
Then added a couple Titles, rendered it, uploaded to Vimeo and here it is, I also posted it on Facebook...

(If you want to see it... Shut the Music off up there if you turned it On)


Played around on the Computer until 10:30 a.m. Then into the Shower, a Shampooo and Shave and headed out for Lottos
Got my Tickets. showed Navru the Tree I got for my Friend Bob, he said he needed a Tree too
And he, like Bob, wanted to borrow one of my Dwarf Spruce Trees and I didn't want them moved
Everyone likes my Spruces lately! I told him if Bob didn't want the Tree I bought for him, he could have it

So headed for Home, worked my Lottos for a $10 Win and then checked Walmart online for Christmas trees
And lookee there!, a cute little 4 foot Tree with Lights and Stand for $25! Good Deal! Navru would like that
So I headed over to Walmart and got one, out to the Blazer ahd headed back to the Fast Stop, told Navru I had his Tree

And he followed me out to the Blazer to get it and bring it in, opened the Box and checked it out and liked it
And he walked out from behind the Counter to give me another big Hug! We going steady now or what?
Anyway, glad to buy him what he needed for Christmas and only cost me what I lose on 5 Lotto Tickets almost daily

~ A Christmas Tree for Bob and one for Navru ~

That was about all the excitement for Tuesday, on to a long afternoon of TV and Movies, lots to chose from
In fact too much, I cancelled Netflix because they raised their Price and I was getting tired of them anyway
I tried Hulu for about a Month, didn't like it any more than Netflix so I canceled that too
I still have Amazon Prime Movies, I'll stick with that for a while anyway and I use TCM a lot for Movies
And looking around on my DirecTV I have several Channels with Movies available I have not been using
So I am checking them out more now and I can record them when I find any I like

And on to a late Movie with a Late Dinner, stayed up longer and had a shorter night, but slept in an extra Hour

Anyway on to Wednesday, Thursday... and that unnecessary Appointment on Friday, what do they want anyway?

~ Tuesday ~ A Bit of Fun for the Day ~

~ A Trip to Lowes for a Friend ~
~ On my Fifth Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Walking in a Winter Wonderland ~

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

And a new Week all over again, One Week until Christmas, Turkey or no Turkey?... That is the Question
Well I am thinking about it anyway, hard to pass up the seasonal Sale Price and so easy to Roast
So on to the Day, what's the Weather like? Hey! Not bad, 39 Degrees going to 57, real moderate
And I have a little trip to run, got a call Sunday from a friend asking about my little Spruce Trees
He wanted to borrow one to use as a Christmas Tree, well they are in heavy Pots, we talked about it
I have them set up with Christmas Lights and they make such a cute Pair, hate to split them up
I told him I guess I could let him have one but then thought, I will just go to Lowes and see if they have one

And off in bright Sun and warming Temps to Lowes, parked right at the Door and wandered in
Headed for the Garden Department and checked the Plants... All gone except for a lot of big Christmas Trees
Back inside more big Christmas Trees and Plants and some little Trees, looked like some kind of Pine
Kinda cute, thought he might like it and bought him One, good buy at less than $20

Wheeled it out tothe Blazer, stuck it in the back seat, too tall for the back area, headed Home
Set it in the Middle of the Porch between my Two Dwarf Spruce Trees, looks sort of good there

~ A Christmas Tree for my Friend Bob ~

Ok... good deed for the Day and what's the next Move if any?... Need some stuff at the Store
And then... To Turkey... or not to Turkey, that was the Question and I decided I would Turkey
So I got my Bread and Milk and Butter and Juice and Detergent and looked the Turkeys over
They had those fancy ones on good sales too but the 'Best Choice' one was lowest
And I haven't found the big name Brands roasted up any better for me so I got a 13 Pounder for $15

~ Christmas Turkey Day is Coming ~

And then, Turkey into the Fridge to thaw, take maybe three Days, then overnight to Brine
So then it looks like Turkey Roasting on Friday or Saturday and then Turkey for a Month

On into the usual Afternoon, thought my friend would drop by for the little Tree but no word
But the usual is he isn't good on keeping appointments, maybe, maybe not, too busy

And then Movie time, and Snack time and finally Bed Time...

~ Monday ~ All used Up ~



~ Sunday, December 17, 2017 ~
~ A Quiet Day ~
~ On My Fourth Day of Christmas ~

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

~ We Three Kings of Orient Are ~

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

Sunday Morning again and starting a little Warmer at 43 Degrees but only going to 51 later
And they said we would wake up to Rain but I haven't peeked out yet to see if it's all wet out there
So time to pour my Coffee and get started playing with my Video, my Puzzles don't work on Sundays now
But, checking my Puzzles online, HAH! The Jumble was working and it was a long one

So I sipped my Coffee and worked the Puzzle and then went back to my Video Project
And I moved a few Scenes around and added a few more Photos, it's looking good to me
I spent maybe an Hour and a Half or so working on it... And on to the Day after that
Here is where I sort of wish I had more Family to show my stuff to, just a few friends watch my Projects now

And then it was time to head out into that Weather, and it had been raining, but just misting then
Off to the Price Chopper to try my luck, had just a little. spent $20, won back $10
The 'Luck' there, that I didn't lose it all...

And after that little foray, back to the monotony of Winter time on a dreary Day
And on to the Afternoon and Movie Time, getting tired of Netflix and I cancelled it anyway
I can watch it until December 21st but again I finished the last episode of 'Breaking Bad' on there

I just started 'Hulu', not sure I like it much and I also have 'Amazon Prime' Movies, don't use that much
But Sunday I started looking around at all the Channels I have on DirecTV I have not been using
And there are several free Channels that have Movies like MTV and Sundance, I checked them out
I saw several Movies on Sundance I like and set them to Record, Maybe I can just dump Hulu and Amazon
The only drawback is they have Commercials but with DirecTV you can fast forward them
Anyway... off to a new day, It will be Monday, my favorite Day... Ole!

~ Monday, Monday all the Way! ~

~ Some Christmas Decoration out Front ~
~ On My Third Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Guess Who is Coming to Town? ~

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

Saturday again... Woke up at 4 a.m. Decided that was too early, went back to sleep and made it until 6 a.m.
Try to make the Day a little shorter so I can stay up longer... and they said a Warm Day today, let's go see
Brrrrrr, not yet, 33 degrees out there but maybe will hit 60 later, bring it on!
9 a.m. Sun streaming through my Office Window but the temp says 36 Degrees, well it warmed a tiny bit
Time to brave the cold and go search for Wealth, where to Today? Price Chopper Machine Two
So I put $20 in the Machine and won back $25... Not enough so I went to the Minit Mart
Got $20 more in Tickets, put $5 in my Pocket, won $20 back, that was a good time to quit for the Day

And warming up outside, a good time to put the Christmas Lights on the Dwarf Spruce Trees
I already had my Christmas Bells hanging from the Deck and my Wreath in the Window
The Lights on the little Trees kind of warm up the Scene a little more... Feliz Navidad!

~ The Front all ready for Christmas Again ~

What else for Sunday... You kidding? Nothing much as usual... A little more playng around with my Video
Some Tortila Chips and Chili Dip for my afternoon TV Snacks and a hot Dog for Dinner
Not much for an exciting Day, but just when have I had an exciting Day here lately...if ever
Anyway, I got another couple ideas for my Video so I'll go play with that for a while

~ Saturday ~ All Used Up ~



~ Friday, December 15, 2017 ~
~ Just a little more Video Addition ~
~ My Second Day of Christmas ~

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

~ It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas ~

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

Blog Page changing time, that means halfway through December and the Year is running out
So what's coming in the next couple Weeks, maybe a Christmas Feast? Didn't feel like doing one for T-Day
But Pat brought over a substitute Dinner to celebrate the the Day for me, maybe I'll do one for Christmas?
My Freezer is stuffed again but it is hard to Pass on a Turkey with the low Sale Price for the Season
And that makes a lot of good Turkey Parts to store for later and and whenever, I just must do that

What's the Weather for Friday? well just about like Thursday without all the Wind
Starting at 30 Degrees, partly Sunny and topping out at 47 or so, but they're saying 60 for Saturday!

So then, as I was sipping the last of my Morning Coffee... another Idea for my 2017 Video
To add to the Christmas scenes I already had there I thought to add my Video of 'Christmas on Main Street'
That's a good old Video and a good Memory as the store no longer exists in downtown Parkville<
So I edited and added it to the Time Line, and that Video is getting very long now
Too long to upload to Vimeo, unless I make it into Part One and Part Two...
Or upgrade my Vimeo Plan to 'Vimeo Plus' which costs a good hunk of money to upgrade
But... Just checked the Video file I have so far, just at 2.38 GB, I can upload 5 GB so it might work

Sunup and Chilly and time to go find my Fortune, the loss for Friday was $5, better luck next time
And back to the Video Editor, looking around on my December 2016 Christmas blog I saw another fun Video
Well it was fun for me and it is an OLD Video with my old Camera but decided to add it anyway
And that Video is getting longer and longer... Gonna have to pay someone to watch all that

Well now, again that was pretty much all for the Day except the usual and that gets boring even to write about
Here and now it seems all the action happens before Noon and it's all just sliding down the hill after that
Let's go see what happens on Saturday

~ Bring it on... I am Ready for Saturday ~



~ My Twelve Days of Christmas Start Today!~

~ Windy and Warm on Wednesday ~ Thursday Cloudy and Cold ~
~ On My First Day of Christmas ~

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

~ Feliz Navidad! ~

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

Another Warm but very Windy Day on Wednesday, what's on tap for Thursday? Lemmee look...
Brrrrrr.. back to the Cold, 33 Degrees at 5:30 a.m. and they say only going to 42, sure not like Wednesday
But I ain't going Fishing or Swimming so it should be comfy inside for whatever there is not to do

OK, 8:30 a.m. Morning Routine almost done, no Shower yet, that's the Finale...
But I had some more of my Christmas Fruitcake, seems better every Day, just slice off the overdone top
Now thinking, wish I could finish my Year 2017 Video, but I still have 16 Days to go
I do have the Finale just about done and it finishes with a Big Bang! Happy New Year!

Was just looking at some of my Photos, thought I looked a bit older in my T-Day Photo with Pat
So I took another Photo Wednesday and looks to me like I am recovering a bit now

~ On Thanksgiving Day ~ On Wednesday ~

And on to seek my fortune, only won $10 which is a $10 loss, just where is that elusive big one?
Couldn't think of anything much to do for Thursday, I did work on my Video a little
The Hospital Video I had included had a couple parts in it that needed editing, I did that
Then on to another just this and that Day with nothing to write Home about, Ho Hum once more
And it doesn't look like so far I have any ideas for Friday or the Weekend

Whatever did I find to do last Winter to keep me from going completely stir crazy?
Someone once said 'Write a Book'... Well I have my Life History on my Web site already
But it will die with me when I stop paying my ISP for the Web Site...
Anyway... I am writing a Photo Book Video of about all the stuff I did in the last Year
And that should be more than enough for any and all that I know...<>
