~ October Leaving Today ~
~ Starting my November Blog Video ~

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

~ Goodbye to the Month of October ~

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

And so, finished my October Blog Photo Video and uploaded to Vimeo then watched on my TV
How about that? Looked pretty good, saw no mistakes on the first viewing but a little noise I didn't like
Not very noticible but ya know I am a nit picker... A tiny thump at the very beginning of the Sound Track
And then a slight rumble next, I think noise from outside when I was taking the start of the Video
So first thing, back to the Video Editor, the thump easy to see and remove, next the rumble was mixed into the Music
And I just replaced that Music Track over the original and all was well, set it to render again

So, it is the last Day of the Month and starting a new Blog Page tomorrow and a new Blog Video too
That sure keeps me busy when things get boring around here, adding Photos most every Day to the Video
So what's for the Day? A peek at the Weather... Been pretty much the same-o for the last few Days
Humm... And again today but cloudy and a little cooler, 47 to start, 58 later, Oh well

Morning Computer stuff done, I dived into that new Video, got the Intro done by 8 a.m. and all's well

~ Lettuce shades the Tomatoes ~ Now with lots of Gro-Light ~

Too much shade from the Lettuce on the Tomato Plants and so...
I harvested all of the Lettuce Crop in AeroGarden One

~ Lettuce Harvest for October ~

'Time Marches On'! Noon-Thirty already, where did the Morning go... into my Video Editor of course
I did stop for a Minute of two for Breakfast... and a trip to the Minit Mart for Gas
Then down the Hill to waste $10 trying to win a Thousand, only won Two $5 Tickets

Then back to the Computer to play with Photos, Blogs and Videos and a new Web Page for my Video Blogs
Now you don't have to go to Vimeo to see them, they have their own Page, soon all 12 wil be on there

~ My Blog Photo Videos for 2018 ~ Click Here ~

Headed out front on a fairly nice Fall Day to do some unpotting, the Coleus and a few Others gone
And here comes Tom with his Blower to blow the Leaves off the Porch, I went back in until he was through
And back out to finish up most all that had given up for the Year, a few Blooms still here and there

~ Some of the Plants gone for the Season ~

And you could pull the Curtain down then, nothing else except Vino, TV and Dinner
Seems my Day ends somewhere around 2 to 4 p.m. and then it is all downhill to Bedtime
So that's all the drivel for Wednesday, let's head on to Thursday and Pay Day!

~ Pay Day... Tomorrow! ~

~ Winding Down another Month ~
~ Tip Toeing into Winter ~

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

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

~ My Kitchen Gardens Doing Great ~

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

5:10 a.m. Tuesday, Monday Blog finished and posted and then what? Go get a Cuppa Coffee
And to the Puzzles, I should say 'Crossword' now, the 'Jumble' somehow disappeared the last Week or so
OK, that done in short order, now what's on the menu? Check the Weather? Let's do that
Oh MY! Warm Morning considering it's October, 60 Degrees, heading to 67... ooops, says Rain Showers

On to something else to do... Only Two Days left in October, time to work on a Finale for my October Blog Video
Well Halloween ends the Month, how about some Ghost Story Night stuff? Some Pumpkins and Spooks
Started on that with an old Nature Sanctuary Video, well, only 5 years old

Worked on that a while, got one scene about finished, time for a Trip to the Price Chopper
Out of Wine again, and low on Apple Juice, who's drinking all that Wine lately anyway?
Got my goodies and headed back, time for Breakfast and a News catch up then back to the Videos
Took a couple scenes of my sad Fall Garden out front, then a hike out back for Video of the Back Gardens
That will make a good close for October... Only need whatever Photos I might get on Wednesday to finish
Decided to just get a couple Photos of the Kitchen Gardens and went ahead to finish that October Video
Then worked steady on it, got the Finale like I wanted, and added kind of a cute surpise at the end

~ My October Blog Photo Video ready for Inspection ~

You will have to wait and see this one in my Concert Hall, this is just a Screen Shot
Also, saw a change I wanted to make so I am editing the Video once again

Set it to render and upload and then back to the Kitchen to cook up my Bacon, both packs
That took a while, only six slices would fit in the Dish at a Time so that took Four trips to the Oven
Finished about 5 p.m. Time for another Glass of Wine, some TV and wait for Dinner of whatever later

Yes Ma'am, a busy day most all Day, some Dinner and off again to the Land of Dreams

~ One Day to Pay Day... Hoo Ray! ~



~ Monday, October 29, 2018 ~
~ I Like that SUNNY Forecast! ~
~ Pay Day on the Way Thursday! ~

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

~ Now Three Sweet Peppers in the Pot ~

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

Monday Mornng, last Week in October, my didn't this Month go fast? Well it did for me anyway
Seems about every other Day it is the Weekend again and I don't like Weekends as I have said many times
So, what's the weather again today? Again, looks a lot like Yesterday, 42 at 6 a.m but going to 71
A tad warmer than Sunday and that's just fine with me, maybe I can do some 'unpotting' out front

7 a.m. and Apple Juice, Coffee, Bank, Facebook, Email, Puzzle, Sunday Blog all done, now what?
Looks like another long, long and long Day ahead, now what? More Blog Pages redos?

9:15 a.m. and that's enough of that for the moment, Ten more blog Pages revised
And still easier all the time, getting close to my current style of Blogs, so there too
But even the later ones have a mistake or a photo or Video missing that I overlooked
Anyway, no Breakfast yes and I need to slip into the shower, Nope! Better not say SLIP!

That done and on with the Day and the exciting Adventures in store, like heading to the Fast Stop
Some chat with Navru, some chat with his Customers, a fun Twenty Minutes or so, got my Lottos and headed back
And back to scratch off NOTHING and have a late Breakfast (ot early lunch) and on with the Editing

I did take a run out back just to check things, and saw two dinky Pumpkin Blooms
I thought we were all through with that, got a Photo and headed back in for whatever
Then saw I was all out of Paper Towels and needed some so back to the Price Chopper
Thought of getting something new for Dinner too, got my Towels and then back to the Meat counter
Saw some nice looking sliced Pork Shoulder and on sale, got a six pack of that and headed home

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

And then, some Business, My last Bill for DirecTV from AT@T was much higher than usual
So I got online to check on why, Clicked on 'Chat', got connected to a real nice Rep, name was Joseph
Best person I ever talked to at AT@T, checked on my case, gave all the Info, a Discount I had ran out
So he went through all the ways he could find to get my Bill lowered, said he found several options
And then I checked out of that pleasant Chat and hoping to see a much better Bill, stay Tuned for results
Also, stay away from Time Warner and Spectrum, worst TV Service I ever had... So there too!

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

Coasting on into the Afternoon, started on the Pork, into the Big Pyrex dish and into the Oven to roast
And stuck a Potato in the Oven too to bake for Dinner later, all set, let the Roast begin
Back to the Computer, out to turn the Roast now and then, then all done set aside to Cool

On to th rest of the Afternoon and Evening, a hunk of Pork, baked Tater and Green Beans for dinner
An old Movie and then a Concert Finale and off to dream of Tomorrow

~ Tuesday already Tomorrow? ~



~ Sunday, October 28, 2018 ~
~ Nice Quiet Sunny Day ~
~ Blog Pages Again ~

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

~ Looks like GoodBye to this Impatiens ~

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

Well now... Sunday all over again... after two slow Days, what is in store for Today?
Beats me, anyone got any Ideas? What's the Weather? Aha, a warmer start at 56 Degrees at 6 a.m.
And mostly Sunny, heading to 67 tops, well we can handle that OK, let's get at it

Had a little hand discomfort early in the Night, just took off the Splint and then had a good Night
Seems the Finger is healing quite a bit now, eager to get it well and close to normal again
So far it has been a real pain in the uhhhhh... Finger... So what't the next Doctor event on the way?

OK, Morning stuff all done, bored already what to do today anyway?
Well some Breakfast, and some boredom and back to the HTML Editor and old Pages, many many
Then a Break to run to the Price Chopper for some Milk (and Lottos), got that and headed back

Put the Milk in the Fridge and then back to the old Pages again and then most all afternoon
And got a lot of them updated, maybe close to Twenty or so and then BORED with that

Took a break to set out some Dinner for later, poured a Glass of Vino and then just coasted the rest of the Day

And that is just what I did, what an long long uneventful Day, but kept busy
And checked out early, let's go try a brand new Monday

~ On the Way to Monday Again ~



~ Saturday, October 27, 2018 ~
~ Just Blog Page Editing most All Day ~
~ Very Slow Quiet Day ~

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

~ Two Pickled Jalapenos ~

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

A better night Friday. no Finger pain all night, but woke up at 1 a.m.
Then tossed and turned until about 3 a.m. before dropping off to Sleep again
Gettng maybe a couple Hours sleep before waking again at 6 a.m.

No Finger pain all night but started to ache when I took the Splint off in the Morning
So a couple Aspirin, mixed my Juice, poured my Coffee and on to the Morning routine

Weather? Looks the same as Friday, 44 to start at 6:30 a.m. and heading to 70 Degrees, that sounds good
Sunny too, that's usually good news, so maybe on to another good Day>

Morning stuff done, then what? Update some more old Blog Pages? Tried that, did Four More
And easier to do now, far less to change as the pages get more like my present ones
Mostly now it seems just replace a missing Video here and there, change a background on some
And Hoooo Hummmmm.... Six done, bored with that at 10 a.m. sure need something else to do on this boring Morning

I headed to the Price Chopper for my Daily Dose of Lottos, splurged on buying Eight Tickets
Picked up another couple Items and headed home to scratch off only Two Winners for $25
Then back to the HTML Editor for more Blog Page updates

Kept at that for most of the Afternoon, got a lot of Pages updated then timefor a wind down
But first, those Two Jalapeno Peppers in the Pot gettng some Size, no use for them right away
So I decided to pickle them for the next time I need a Jalapeno for something picante
Mixed up some Brine, let it simmer a while, in with the two lonely Peppers for a few Minutes
Then the Peppers in a Jar, the Brine over the Peppers and Voila, pickled Jalapeno Peppers!

All that trouble fot two Pewppers? Well I can save that Brine for later
And as more Peppers get to size then I can Pickle them one or twomore at a time

And that was all of Saturday except Dinner and a Movie and a Concert>

~ And nothing to write Home About on Saturday ~



~ Friday, October 26, 2018 ~
~ Cool Sunny Quiet ~ Not Much Happenin' Day ~
~ Mostly Computer Playing ~

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

~ Brighter Blooms on the Tomatoes ~

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

Friday again, my don't time fly? 2018 sure isn't lasting very long, I'm gonna get old soon
85 didn't sound so bad in 2017... but 87? That's close to getting Old and I don't want to get old!

So what's for the Day? Again not a clue, just hit the Fast Stop for my Fortune, had two good Days at that
After that then just coast through another Day... Hoping this hand will stop hurting sometime
I thought with the stitches out I would have a better night, and did for most of it, then woke up
Maybe that's when the Tylenol wore off, shudda got up for more but stuck it out until 5 a.m.

Anyway, on with the Day, looks about the same as Thursday weatherwise but Sunny and maybe hitting close to 60
Got my Morning routine out of the way and then headed down to the Fast Stop, a bit of Chat and got my lottos
Back up the Hill to the Price Chopper, wanted some Celery to add to my 'Steak Stew'
Got that, headed Home, worked my Lottos for Zero and had a late Breakfast and back to the Computer

After an Hour or Two on the Computer, out to the Kitchen to work on the Celery for the Stew
Chopped up a couple Stalks and put them in the Pot with a little Olive Oil to soften
Then into the big Pot of Beef Stew to warm up later for another Dinner

And checked the Plants in Garden One again, do not want to let the Lettuce to shade the tiny Tomato Plants
Clipped a few Leaves that were doing that, save then for a Sandwich whenever

~ Tomato Plants back in the Grow Light ~

More playing on the Computer, more News Catch Up on the TV, some of the rejuvenated Stew
And off to Bed early on a nuce quiet Evening

~ Not much to write Home About ~



~ Thursday, October 25, 2018 ~
~ Off to NKC Hospital ~ Stitches out Day
~ 15 Stitches Out ~ OUCH! ~

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

~ Back to my Home away from Home ~

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

Thursday Morning... 8 a.m. Morning stuff all done, (except breakfast) and ready to head out
Cloudy and 48 degrees out there, only going to 51 they say, oh well, only the Doc Visit for Today
So almost a half hour to piddle away before I leave, and I dislike that Morning traffic rush
It's worse now because of some Street and Bridge work in Downtown Kansas City

On to the NKC Hospital in a dripping Rain, the Traffic not as bad as expected, got there right on time
A short wait and into the little Room again, then the Nurse with her Tools to remove the Stitches
A few came out, then one HURT! But she got it out, them more some hurting some none at all
Down to the last three and she couldn't get them out, they were embedded deep, called in a Tech to do it
A nice guy, hope he's good at this, he seemed confident and he started in, One out, it HURT!
Two to go, another one and DAYUM! Worst thing I have been through that I can remember
One more and that also HURT BAD! and then there were none and I hadn't passed out... Hooray!

~ The Scene of the Crime ~ 15 Stitches Out ~

So, in comes the Doc, takes a look at his work, he's satisfied, a few questions
Told me a few things I should do to keep it straight as the finger heals
And then says come back in Four Weeks to see if you Graduate, and see ya later

Headed back from the Torture Chamber, stopped by the Price Chopper for a Gallon of Wine
I sure am drinking a lot of that lately! Well, I did shut off the Margaritas, making me sleepy early
And then back at the Ranch at 11 a.m. with nothing to do the rest of the Day

Well hadn't had Breakfast, just Juice and Coffee, so how about lunch? Sammich maybe?
Yeah that would do, picked a few Leaves of Lettuce from Garden One that were shading the Tomatoes
The Lettuce is growing fast and the Tomatoes very slowly, so I have to watch that Lettuce

~ New Garden Lettuce for my Sandwich ~

And that was a tasty morsel, so what is next? Well I got an Email from the Price Chopper
Hormel 'Black Label' Bacon, their Best... Regular Price $6.49... Today only, 99 Cents for a Pound!
You have to show them the Code in the Email, no coupon, I just got a Screen Shot and printed it

~ Says Come and Get It! ~

So I headed out again, I needed some Potatoes and Onions too... Picked up some Lottos on the way to Produce
Got My Onions, and Potatoes, on Sale, then way back to the Meat Counter, there it was... a Big Pile
Found a beautiful Pound of Thick Cut Bacon, grabbed that and headed for Check-out

~ Best Bacon in the House for 99 Cents! ~

And then, back at the Ranch, worked my Lottos, and Mom! Lookee there!, a really nice $40 Win!
I can sure use that... To lose on more loser Lottos, yeah, win some, lose most, the way the Lotto Ball Bounces

~ Nice Winner for a Second Day in a Row ~

On through the rest of a slow Afternoon, what's for Dinner? Still have some of that 'free' Steak I lucked in on
I tried it a few Times, frying it and it turned out a bit chewey, what if I simmered some with Veggies?
Kind of a 'Beef Stew? Yeah, I have the stuff, let's try that and away I went, Used the 'Bottom Round' I had
That's the chewiest kind, cut it into very small cubes and into the Pot, then cubed up a couple Potatoes
Into the Pot with the Beef, opened a can of sliced Carrots, poured the liquid in the Pot and set it simmering
Then chopped up a big sweet Onion and that into the Pot, then simmer slowly while I had a Glass of Vino

Got caught up with the latest CNN and MSNBC Drivel and then back to the Kitchen to dump in the Carrots
Some celery would have gone good in that Mix too, but I didn't have any, but on with the mission
And then to finish out the Day later, a Bowl of my 'Stew' with some Snacker Crackers and then drop down the Curtain

~ A Good enough 'Show' for Thursday ~



~ Wednesday, October 24, 2018 ~
~ A Quiet Day before another Doctor Day ~
~ With Cookies from Patricia ~

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

~ The Azalea decided to Bloom ~

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

~ This Canna not giving up quite Yet ~

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

And another Weather Day like Tuesday on Wednesday and bright Sun again, very nice
No hurry to do anything, doing the usual routine with more Photo and Video playing on the Computer
I had the Window Cam going Tuesday when Pat left and thought I would make a little Video of that
Just finished that when she called saying she was on the way to the Sanctuary and had a gift for me
I saw her coming down the Hill, opened the Door to welcome the Cookies in, then showed her the Video

~ Til We Meet Again ~

She went on her merry way to work on Ghost Story Night preparation and I sampled a Cookie
They made a pretty Picture on my Table with the Two kinds of Cookies and very Tasty at that, yummy!

~ A Cookie Flower Gift from Patricia ~

And I was on Messenger with Sigi and he sent me a link to a Photo of the Heavy Equipment place he works
But he doesn't do heavy duty work, he does something in an Office there, takes a Photo now and then
Don't know what else he does there if anything, he never says much

~ Herr Sigi Wulle's place of Employment ~

Then time to head out to trade in some of my nice Lotto Winners on some not so nice losers
To the Fast Stop again and lots of Chat with Navru, says he liked the Pickles I gave him
Told him to drop by and I'd give him some more, also show him the benefits of Phone Mirroring to TV

And back to scratch off a tiny $5 Win and on to the rest of the Day, need to think of something for Dinner
Then thought of something, I have lots of those Ham Hocks and Beans, but need some Cornbread and all out of Butter
Back to the Price Chopper once again for that, then something to do in the Afternoon

Got my Butter and Jiffy Cornbread and headed back, got 4 Packs of Jiffy Mix, will make two Skillets full
I like Jiffy, so cheap and easy to make, One Egg and 1/3 Cup of Milk and stir it up, so E Z!
On with the Oven, Peanut Oil in my Cast Iron Skillet, into the Oven to pre-heat
Mix up the Corn Bread Batter, into the Skillet and into the oven, then a box of Beans out of the Freezer
And... pour a Glass of Vino Tinto and back to the TV to catch up on the Non News

Got a fill of the 'News' in the 20 Minutes it takes to bake the Cornbread, then took it out of the Oven
On a rack to Cool, stir the Beans and back to the Afternoon full of TV


~ Out of the Oven ~ Minus One Slice for the Freezer ~

Finished up an old Movie, then some Beans on the Plate, some Butter on the Cornbread
And back to the TV for an ample repast for a nice Finish to a nice Day

~ Nice 'Down Home' Dinner for Wednesday ~



~ Tuesday, October 23, 2018 ~
~ A Visitor for Tuesday ~
~ Nice Visit and a Spooky Movie ~

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

~ Tiny Blooms on the Tomato Plant ~

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

Tuesday Morning und Guten Morgen und Buenos Dias a todos... Off to another Fun Day
Well they might not all be fun Days but I sure try to make them that way and sometimes succeed
A pretty good Night, only woke up once (I think) and not much finger discomfort
If I wasn't wearing that bulky splint I believe there would be none, but... Doc says to do it

Got a Call from Pat, actually she was returning my call for something I wanted to ask about
She said she had been busy with the upcoming Ghost Story Night but would like to come over to take a break
Asked if I might have any Spooky Movies to watch, ...Sure, several I had recorded recently

Remembering Yesterday and showing Navru how to take a Photo, I just had said 'Shoot' here
Then he tried hear and there and had a great time playing with that, now wants it
But he had that Fourth rate 'iphone' and misses out on a lot goodies my Samsung has

~ Yep, I took the Photo Vocally ~

So, just cruising through the Morning with this and that, Photos and stuff on the Computer
A late shower and then headed back to the Price Chopper for goodies, Candy and Nuts and Lottos
And back Home to scratch off my Lottos, Hey Hey! a nice $50 Win! Then a $10 to add to that

~ Nice $50 Win on Tuesday ~

Back to the Computer to play around editing Photos until arrived, Pat arrived and joined me
I was editing Photos from the Fast Stop using the Camera Voice Command and showed her how it works
And in some cases it looks like it is better to say 'Smile' to take the Photo rather than 'Shoot'

~ SHOOT! ~

Then we retired to my Theater for the Afternoon Entertainment and I put on an old Frankenstein Movie
It was 'The Son of Frankenstein' and it was more comical than Spooky but interesting at that
Got the Movie started and then out to the Kitchen to pop a big Bowl of Popcorn and back to the Show

The Movie ended and then I flipped on the Computer and went to an old Sanctuary Ghost Night Video
That one ended and she wanted to see another one, well they do fit in the Halloween Week
Ghost Story Night at the Sanctuary is this Saturday and she is working on that
And that one ran out and it was time for her to head back to the Ranch

Pat headed up the Hill to Home and I headed out to the Kitchen to hunt for Dinner
And I found some Dinner and another Glass of Vino and back to the TV to finish another good Day


~ Tuesday, Busy Visitor Day ~ See ya Tomorrow ~



~ Monday, October 22, 2018 ~
~ Nicer and Warmer Sunny Monday ~
~ Even Up Win at the Fast Stop ~

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

~ Tomato Started Blooming Again ~

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

Good Morning Monday, my current Favorite Day of the Week except for Pay Day but that only comes Twice a Month
A nicer Sunday than Saturday this past Week, what about the start of this Day? Huh, looks like the past Two Days
46 Degrees at 6:30 a.m. somewhere in the 60s later... And saying Sunny again... Whoooopee!

Got my Ladder out of the Pantry to climb up to look at Garden Two, earlier there were lots of blooms
But no Tomatoes showed up, now after a week or two it looks like it's trying again

Then a lot of Morning 'Computering around' and then Breakfast and a Shower and off to the Fast Stop
Lots of Chat with Navru and Customers, playing around with the Cell Phones, showing Navru this and that
He has an (UGH) iPhone and I was showing him some of the Goodies on my Samsung he doesn't have
Like taking Photos with a 'Voice Command' and how I can Mirror to most TVs with no cables or adapters

~ Showing Navru my 'Shoot' Photo Command ~

Spent quite a bit time there and then headed up the Hill to get the latest Photo of the new Ace Hardware
Then into the Price Chopper there to get some eating goodies and back home to scratch my Lottos
I got $20 worth at the Fast stop on Saturday and won $15 back, traded those and added a Ten Spot for $25 more
And at least I won my $25 Dollars back, only lost $5 over the Weekend

~ More Ace Hardware Construction ~

And then, back to old Page editing and getting easier on every Page, most of the later format is OK by me
Just need a little touching up here and there and also find and repost any missing Photos and Videos

I took a break from that about 2 p.m. had a late lunch and then on to finish the Day as usual
Except the final hour or two, I tried my 'Screen Mirroring' to the TV with my Phone and it works great
Instead of going online with the Computer I can watch Amazon Prime, my Videos on Vimeo, listen to You Tube
And review my Blogs and Web Pages just using the Phone and the quality is the same

Then on to a nice Dinner and off to that quiet back Room for the Night

~ Monday ~ Suprizing much Warmer Day ~



~ Sunday, October 21, 2018 ~
~ Nice Quiet and Sunny Day ~
~ More Blogs Revised ~

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

~ Look Papa a Sweet Pepper in the Pot ~

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

~ And Three Jalapenos in this Pot ~

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

A bit of a chill sitting at the Computer Sunday Morning, OH, 34 Degrees out there
Where did those 90 degrees Days disappear to? Seems like last week we were sweltering
Oh well, on to another Day, what we gonna on a cold Sunday? Looks the same as on that cold Saturday
Finish and post the Blog, start on another and then back to the old Blog Pages

Started working on those old pages again, by 10 a.m. I had another long one finished and uploaded
Then started on Page 35 and surprize, almost like my new pages, just some minor adjustments needed
Up to page 34 they needed less and less Edits, I guess my taste was improving in colors and neatness
Getting rid of that extra large Type and blaring Colors, still need to check the rest for missing Photos and Videos
And other details that (to me) improve the story and impressions

On Page 35 I found an early Garden Video that needed some sprucing up, downloaded the File
Added some Music, added to the Darkness of the Video, rendered, uploaded and posted the new Version
Then replaced a missing Video, somehow got changed and lost, finished that Page and Uploaded it

That one took quite a bit if time, but I started on page 36 anyway and a surpize again!
A few things to change and add but even less than Page 35, and some changes I made to the others not needed
Well that brought me to 2:15 p.m. and Time to pull the Plug and find other entertainment

And then into another Afternoon and Evening of winding down, was watching a Movie and sipping my Wine
About 5 p.m. knock knock knock on my Door, opened it and there was my friend from Uzbekistan, Navruzbek
And bearing Gifts, a sack full of Coffee Filters, I had gone there earlier to buy some Filters and he gave me a pack
That's enough for quite a long time at one a Day, but he brought me Four more Packs, just had damaged boxes
Now with the ones he brought I have enough filters for a Year or Two

~ A Filter Bouquet from Navru and the Fast Stop ~

I hadn't been to the Fast Stop for over a Week, because my Hand operation and also buying less Scratchers
He said come by anyway just to talk, and also invited me to his place, the guy likes me!
Well I like him too, and we do find lots of things to talk about, so the Fast Stop is the best place for that

Then on with my Movie, some Dinner and pulled the Plug earlier than usual after a busy Day

~ Sunday ~ Nicer Weather for another Quiet and Busy Day ~



~ Saturday, October 20, 2018 ~
~ My Pumpkin and Tomato Finale Photos ~
~ And more Blog Page Updating ~

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

~ Finally ~ The Pumpkin Vine Finale ~

Saturday Morning, can we have some Sunshine today? 43 now at 8 a.m. and saying going to 60 and SUNNY!
A long Night after finally getting to sleep, that Hand Splint isn't all that comfy
I usually wake up Two to Three Times a Night but this Night didn't wake up until 4:30 a.m.
Thought about getting up then thought better of it, rolled over and slept until almost 7 a.m.

Off with the Splint and bandages I had put under it, what for Today on that? Well put on a Glove
Get my Shower and then as little a Bandage as I can get away with, Doc says to keep flexing that Hand
Feels better with no Bandage at all, but does need some cover

Just took a peek out there with the Window Cam, the lot full of Cars for the next two Days
I like Weekdays better when most all are gone for the Day, and why do Saturday and Sunday seem longer than Week Days?
I hardly ever see the People here just those empty Cars lined up out front

So, I needed some Coffee Filters, hadn't been to the Fast Stop for a Week so I headed there
Then Dubra Utra and Buenos Dias and all that stuff... How doin Dod? And que te Pasa?
Where's yer Coffee Filters? over there, walked over, Navru headed to his Coffee Urn, had an open Box there
Gave the remaing Filters sans charge and then I got my Lottos then a lot of Chat, he wanted to talk
That finally wound down and I headed Home for another late Breakfast and worked my Lottos for a $15 Win

Had a big sack of Trash to dump so headed out and did that, headed around back and NO Pumkin Blooms, all finished
Gpo that Finale Photo and then noticed all those Green Celeb Tomatoes on the Vine, big enough to use for something
So I made that my last Harvest of the Season, now to process them some and add to my Relish or Tomato Verde Picante Sauce

~ September 19 ~ October 20 ~ The Last Ten Celebrity Tomatoes off the Vine ~

Chunked half a big Onion and into the Food Processor, rinsed and chopped the Tomatoes, then all into the Pot
Now write down this Recipe, add some Olive Oil, some Malt Vinegar, some Garlic Salt, some Sugar
Set the heat to low, on with the Lid and pour a glass of wine and go update another Blog

~ My latest Salsa Verde Picante ~

After the Salsa had simmered a while I took a Taste, ahhhh, quite nice, then added a full Jar of Salsa I made earlier
Stirred that in and let it all heat up together, another Taste... ahhhhh nicer, mas Picante, had more Spices in that try
Then I put it in Jars, almost filled a second Jar, now enough to last til Spring? No way Jose

~ Almost enough for a Second Jar ~

That's enough drivel for Saturday, let's rest up for Sunday

~ Saturday ~ Quiet but Busy Day ~ Inside ~

~ Wrapping up another Week ~
~ Quiet Inside Page Editing Day ~

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

~ Three Orphans brought in from the Cold ~

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

Friday Morning, a kind of restless night again. I ran out of my Pantoprazole Pills and had Heartburn
I found some old Anti-Acid Pills I used to use but they don't work nearly as well
I had ordered my Prescription filled, hope that they show up today

On the Gardening front not much going on, I saw those little Celosia Plants out front
Trying to recover from their last Varmint or Bug attack, thought I would bring them in
I had Room for them on the shelf and they add a little brightness to the Kitchen

Tried my Splint last Night, about as comfy as the big Bandage which wasn't all that much
Off with that this Morning, cleaned up the hand a little and on with some Band-Aids, looks better

~ Bandage off ~ Band-Aids On ~

Some Raisin Oatmeal Cookies and Milk, not much but healthy anyway, a Cup of Coffee and finishing my Puzzles
That pretty well did in the Morning activity, drab and cold outside, I'll just stay in here a bit
I started again on old Page number 31 and finished it at 11:30 a.m. and enough of that, gets boring
Well now, Win some and Lose some, that's the way the Garden Grows, Depends on the Seed, the Soil the weather and Good Luck
Moved the Tomato plant from the AeroGarden to the Pot and something didn't work out rght. so try again

~ September 30 ~ October 02 ~ October 19 ~

Just chatting on Messemger with Sigi and I made the Remark 'I did it My Way' then posted the link to that song on You Tube
And then I listened to the Words and thought... 'That is My Song' As I sure did do it 'My Way' for the most Part
~ I Did it My Way ~

Back to the old Blog Pages and pecked away most all Day and finished another One
After that finished the Day as usual, might as well say good Night at 3 p.m.
Then off to Bed to dream about what adventures will arise on the Dawning

~ Friday ~ Quiet but Busy Day ~ Inside ~

~ Doctor Appointment ~ Bandage comes Off ~
~ That was It for Thursday ~

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

~ Back at my North Kansas City Hotel ~

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

Thursday, 7 a.m. and all's well, had the best Night in a Week, no pain. good sleep
Usually wake up at 5 a.m. Today, Thursday at 6:30 a.m. and only a couple Aspirin at Bedtime
And two hours to play before heading to NKC Hospital to get the big Bandage removed... GOOD!
Then the Doc is supposed to tell me what to do until the stitches come out nezt Thursday

Off to Bed early on Wednesday Night, just bored with everything after a pain free Day
No heavy Duty Pills, I am finished with that for a while, just a couple Aspirin at bedtime
Then a few Dreams, woke up twice, the third time at 6:30 and surprised that late
Got to get moving to get going at 8:30...

So, poured my Juice, finished and posted Wednesday's Blog, got this one started
Already 7:30 a.m. and time to hit the Shower, 'Time Do Fly' when yer having fun!
8:20 a.m. On with the Jacket and point that Mercedes at North Kansas City and the NKC Funhouse

~ Checking in to Suite 600 ~

And I got there just 5 minutes early, zipped up to the 6th Floor, Here I am!
Sign this and have a wait, signed that and waited... Donald? Yes, this way

Into the Little Room, BP Check, then off with the Huge Bandage... Hey there is a hand in there!
But what's been chewing on it? It's a real mess, and she says wait right here, the Doctor will be in... HAH!

~ Off with the Big Bandage ~

And the Doctor came in, fresh out of High School, well how's the Finger? It's a real Mess
He take a look and says 'Perfect!' If that's perfect what does a failure look like?
Then he told me how to exersize the Fingers during the Days, says he will give me a splint for Nights
And see ya next Thursday... Off I go downstairs to have that Splint made while I wait

~ Making The Splint ~

A nice young lady explained the process and started in, I waited and watched while she measured
Drew the Plan and went to the Counter and started in, took a bit of time, then she wrapped my hand
Snapped on the Splint and sent me on my happy way back to Parkville

~ Splint Installed ~

Back in Parkville and inside at NOON! Where have I been all dam Day! Oh yeah, Med Stuff... Drat
So time for Breakfast at Noon, had my recent favorite, Raisin Bran from the Price Chopper
And their Brand 'Best Choice' and it is that, Bigger Box, more Raisins and lower Price Yahoo!
Not feeling all that Peppy and nothing planned to do so back to the old Pages, moving right along on that
Getting easier and faster to upgrade now, closer to the Format I am using on Today's Pages
Now looking for the Day that catches up to Today to just let them ride. I am finding missing Videos though
Ones that I used to upload to You Tube and some of my earlier Vimeo Vidoes, all replaced I found so far

And so then, at 3 p.m. I finished Page Number 30, and enough of that for the Day, now find something for Dinner

I found something for Dinner, tried it at Movie Time, didn't care much for the rerun
Had enough for the Day anyway and gave up for Beddy Bye Time... Buenos Noches...

~ Thursday ~ Busy Enough ~ Not a 'Thrilling' Day ~



~ Wednesday, October 17, 2018 ~
~ Warmer Sunny Day ~ Still Cool ~
~ More Old Pages Edited ~

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

~ Last of the Pumpkins? ~

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

~ Didn't expect to see This ~

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

Up at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, after a somewhat better Night, hadn't had a pill since Two Tylenol after bedtime
After that last Norco Pill Tuesday Morning I thought that was enough of that, leave the rest in the Bottle
And I took nothing after that all Day, still feeling OK at bedtime so took nothing then
Thought I would take a couple Tylenol the first time I woke up after that and that's what I did<
Woke up one more Time after that still feeling OK and that was it for the night

And up but not quite 'at 'em' at 5 a.m. and no pain for a change, maybe I got 'er whipped now?
Planning to just coast through the Day, the big Bandage comes off Tomorrow, hope that helps things
The bandage does get in the way and I think increases the level of discomfort

So, saying Sunny for Wednesday... GOOD! Getting my fill of dull drab Days... and slightly warmer
42 Degrees now at 6 a.m. 61 tops, no swimming today, actually at this time... looks like no nothing today
Maybe some more Page updating, but now Coffee and Puzzles

Got that stuff done, what then? More old Page editing, might as well, nothing else on the Agenda yet
Back to Page 27, and that page was a big turning point, pages started getting more like now, much neater
I showed the difference to Pat on the earlier Pages, she thought they were OK, well, maybe at the time

I had just started the Blog Page when the Yahoo '360' Page was discontinued, don't think we used HTML for that
I was using HTML on my other Web Pages and some of those I have also been redoing to what I like now<
But there are a lot of them, and many more Blog Pages, could keep busy a long time updating them all

Anyway, on to Page 28, see if I can finish a couple more
Here is a sample of the Old and New... These shots don't show much but do give a hint
What ya think? Worth the effort to change all those pages? (I DO!)

~ Page 28 Before Editing ~

~ Page 28 After ~

Enough of that, let's go get Breakfast, all out of Cereal and Milk... Off to the Price Chopper
Picked up a Carton of Milk, and a Box of 'Best Choice' Raisin bran... 'with extra Raisins'
Headed back to have Breakfast, some non-news and then a couple Photos out back and Front

~ Bye Bye Coleus ~ Hello Azalea Bud ~

Out front, the Coleus all gave up the Ghost and look like Ghosts, a NEW Bud on one Azalea Plant
And the Dwarf Spruce Trees and the Rhododendron Plants look great, some like the Cold, some just give up

So then on imto a very long and vey quiet afternoon of HTML Editing, I just kind of get in the flow
Finally wound down that activity at 3 p.m. Let's see what's for Dinner

And Dinner was a roasted Chicken Thigh I found in the Freezer with some Cabbage and Sweet Corn
A quite ample repast at that, prepped, went back to the TV for an old Movie
I got that all down, then Exit the Movie, Enter the Dinner, finish that and off to bed

And tomorrow, back to NKC Hospital first thing on Thursday

~ Wednesday... Painless Day for the most Part ~

~ A Better Monday Night ~
~ Another Freezing Morning! ~

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

~ Frost on the Windshield ~ Frost on the Roof ~

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

But Babee! It's COLD Outside! Yeah second Freeze of the Season already, Mike says a Record Low on Monday
31 Degrees now at 5 a.m. Tuesday, 60 later maybe, I didn't get out early on Monday, didn't know we had that much Cold
So now for sure I can discontinue that Morning Trek to the Punkin Patch

Ohhhh, so sleeeeepy now this Morning... I had a better Night this Monday until about 2 a.m.
I got my new Pills Monday Afternoon, took a couple Tylenol at 4 p.m. Thought I would try the new one later
So off to Bed, an easy night to start and woke up at 10 p.m. Took a 'Norco' Pill then, back to sleep
And had a good sleep until abour 2 a.m. when the Norco wore off, but what Dreams! Then some pain again

Gave up and got up at 4:30 or so, took another Norco, started on Blog stuff again, then sleepy again
And do I mean sleepy! I began to feel that I was gonna pass out right then and there
So, I gave up and toddled back to bed, - right then and there! - And dropped back into Slumberland
And Dreamland too, I was into dreaming just about the time I laid back and pulled the covers up

So, woke up again a bit after 8 a.m. and feeling woozy, wonder if that is how those Pills work for me?
If so I ain't gonna use them, just stick with Tylenol which doesn't seem to work all that well eiher

Opened the shade in the Office Room, Brrrrrrr, Icy Windshields out there, and Weather says 33 Degrees!
More crazy Weather to add to this Year, all Year... Crazy Weather from January to October so far

So what to do all Day? Besides snooze and shiver? Work on my old Pages I guess, now on Page Number 25
So, just cruising along and taking it easy, one Day on the Page at a time... And stopping for Breakfast
And this and that... finished Page 25 just at Noon, ho hum... and stlll sleepy and woozy

Back to the old Pages, taking my time, finished Page 26, started on Page 27, got about half way through
Decided that was enough of that for the Day, drifted on through the rest of the Afternoon
On to TV time, a Glass of Wine, some light snacking... Duh, dull afternoon fer sure

And that was pretty much all of a not much going on Day, maybe I can wake up on Wednesday?
I'll let you know tomorrow, see ya..........

~ Tuesday ~ Slow, Sleepy and Blah Day ~

~ Another Restless Night Sunday ~
~ Got some Strong Stuff for Monday Night ~

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

~ Anybody want a Jalapeņo Pepper? ~

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

Monday Morning (I Think).... says 7:15 a.m. but not sure that I am awake yet
I had a bit better Night but sure not what it takes to get all rested up for sure
All those Dreams and waking up with a pain here or there, not as bad as Saturday Night but bad enough
The first Day and Night were great, no pain hardly at all but that changed for big on Saturday Night
I just took a few Aspirin Friday Night and Saturday Morning but got out the Tylenol Saturday Night

The Doctor gave me a prescription for 'Norco' but I didn't get it filled, to see if I really needed it
Last time I only used One heavy duty Pill after the Operation and I thought I had this one under control
And I did for a good while but it didn't last, so now I'm thinking I'll get that heavy duty Pill
Just in case for Monday Night, I would like a good Night of Sleep, ho hum, I ain't awake yet today

I looked up my Finger Operation in 2015, found a Photo, a tiny Bandage compared to the new one
I am thinking he might have done a little more fixing on this one, I'll see that Thursday

~ First Time ~ This Time ~ You think they may have done a bit More? ~

So back to Blog Page rehab for awhile, and a little Breakfast later, then decided to go get my Prescription
See if I can maybe get in a better Night's Sleep, I need one for sure, up to Walgreens then
Got my Pills and only cost $7.15, my Insurance paid some, now see if I can wait til Bedtime to take one

Then... back to the Web Pages... Moving right along with them... Worked most all Afternoon
Finished Page 24, uploaded that one and then back to the TV for winding down on an uncomfortable Day
Who's Idea was it anyway to have them hacking away on my Pinky?

~ Monday ~ A Bit Busy ~ A Bit Tedious ~



~ Sunday, October 14, 2018 ~
~ Not a Good Saturday Night ~
~ Tomato Pop Up Day ~

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

~ Three New Tomato Plants ~

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

Nope, not a good Night... Hand started hurting some late in the Day, too much typing?
Nah, I wan't using that hand much for that, not a lot of harsh pain, just kind of an aching
I gave up the TV about 7 p.m. Took Two Tylenol and headed for Bed and a sleepless Night
Just couldn't get comfortable with that achng Finger, dozed off now and then but woke up about Five times at least

Up at 5 a.m. Took Two more Tylenol, hope they can cut down on this aching a bit
Mixed my Juice, put on the Coffee and on with the start of 'My Day' now at 6 a.m.

6:45 a.m. Drank my Juice, worked the Crossword, Tylenol seems to be working some but getting sleepy
Well I didn't get much sleep during the Night with all that tossing and turning, so what now?
Pour my Coffee and work on some more Blog Pages I guess... Duh...

8 a.m. still sleeeeepy... but finished old Blog Page 21 and sure looks a lot better now
Should I go back to Bed or start on another Page? Well I'll drink my Coffee and think about it
So sip, sip, sip, and I started on another Page, finished that and then took a short One Hour nap
Then another Cup of Coffee and started on another Page, nothing else to do and what a boring Day

And finished another Page and then started on another... Decided to stop for lunch at 2:30 p.m.
A peek out the Window then, BLAH! All cloudy and wet, so dreary, a nice Day to be inside doing what I was doing

Had a sammich for Lunch and then back to the old Page revisions and finished Page 23 at 3:30 p.m.
And that's enough of that for another Day, then Wine and TV Time until Dinner, let's cool it
Nope, let's warm it, plenty cool out front at 44 Degrees and light Rain

So I warmed it up watching TV, gave it up early and headed to bed, for a better night... hopefully...

~ Sunday ~ Kept Busy ~ But not much Fun ~
