emoticon TECHNOLOGY......FEH!!!!!!!! emoticon
Don't know if I mentioned that Ray's cc got compromised on Monday. Chase notified me that somebody tried to buy gas w/it. I said it wasn't HIM...so...they canceled the card. Then, a Chase rep called & said a new card would be delivered via UPS TUES, & I had to sign for it. Well, no UPS came by 7 PM, so I called Chase. This guy said NO CARD WAS ORDERED, so HE would send a card. THAT card came on WED. UPS threw it at the door & left THEN, YEST, UPS came again, w/ANOTHER CARD...& THIS 1 I had to sign for! UGH! SO, I called Chase....WTF?????
This guy asked me a bunch of questions, including DATE OF BIRTH & AGE...so...when I told him my B'Day was AUG 9, I told him...I EXPECT A BIRTHDAY CARD FROM YOU, NOW that you know WHEN my B'day is! HE LAUGHED!!!!!!! emoticon
He told me to DESTROY the 2nd card; bc it was a DUPLICATE! MORONS! Seems like the RIGHT HAND doesn't know what the LEFT HAND is doing at CHASE!!!!!! BLEH!!!!

Today was better! We went to the beach! The first time we went in the water, it was FILTHY! Very MURKY.....like swimming in a CANAL! BLEH! We went back in about 1 hr later, & it was MUCH BETTER! You could actually SEE THINGS in the water! It was NICE, & the SAND was BRUTALLY HOT! We burned our feet....& it isn't even SUMMER! YIKES!!!!

Haven't been in Sandy's pool lately; BUT.....I will be staying there for 2 wks in July! emoticon

I am surprised you haven't taken a BASEBALL BAT to that laptop! SO FRUSTRATING! UGH! emoticon

emoticon Isn’t it funny how great technology (!!) has helped us with all this crap and involvement in setting up, waiting for responses/, returning, blah blah blah. Yeeaahhhh...right emoticon emoticon
Watching game now, last night’s game rained out emoticon Ticked off cause I planned my evening around it emoticon emoticon
Sunny skies today emoticon
Got in some fitness. Been having lot of pain in back, right hip, right leg and ankle. Tough when trying to get some fitness in emoticon
Have you been swimming in Sandy’s pool?
Enjoy your weekend !! emoticon
P.S. Typing this on phone. Too frustrating to do so on the laptop. Tired of words jumbling, everything deleted, and no ability to be able to actually send a darned message emoticon

Yankees are on a tear!! Love it! emoticon 😀

emoticon The box arrived about 11 AM Sat. It was a MAJOR PIA trying to hook it up; bc the plug that fits into the outlet was HUGE....& would NOT FIT thru the hole in my entertainment piece. I wrapped the cord around a PAINT STIRRER & lifted it up to the hole, so I could plug it into the box! I finally got everything connected & THANK GOD IT WORKS!

Today, Ray & I went out to breakfast & then went to Sandy's house to watch some shows she recorded for us. She watched w/us then she left, & we stayed & floated in her pool for a few hrs!
She said...Just LOCK UP when you leave! Isn't she TERRIFIC??????? emoticon

Went to an outside Festival with my son and family. Turned out to be a lovely day emoticon Temps were cool so no one was sweating like an Umpire emoticon
Back story on that....my younger son and I changed “sweating like a pig” emoticon to “Sweating like an Umpire”. It is true that pigs 🐷 DO NOT sweat!! emoticon The saying has stuck for years.
Got the game on, tied at 5.

My DVR box decided on Thursday it didn't want to work anymore; so....I could not record any of the BIG BANG FINALES! I was so MAD! I spent 90 min. doing "CHAT" w/AT&T...& after many tries....I was told it was irreparable & to return it to them. I am still waiting for the replacement box. I HOPE it shows up today! I have to hook it up myself! UGH!
My internet kept going out on Thurs night....yesterday, too! I HOPE I won't need a new MODEM; bc THEN...we will have no internet TV or PHONES! BLEH!!!!
All this technology is a LOT OF CRAPOLA!!!!!!!!

Enjoy your new FITNESS BUDDY! emoticon

😲 Writing this in my IPhone. I hope the emoticons show up....typically they don’t 😩
Watching the Yankee Game emoticon , CC pitching. Big game as the winner will be in First place.
I’ve been to Florida once, so I understand the temp issues.
Looks like I found a fitness buddy. I’ve always done outdoor fitness solo, and loved it. A woman moved into our community and we hit it off well. She has crazy work hours so most likely we’ll only fitness together 2X weekly. No problem with me since I’ll just keep on fitnessing on my own the rest of the days.
5th inning, CC still on the mound, score 1-1. Winner gets first place!! 👍🏻
Go Yankeessss!!!

emoticon It has been VERY HOT...YESTERDAY & TODAY broke record HIGHS...
Yest was 94 & today hit 95! Can you BELIEVE IT....HIGH temps like that in MAY????? UGH!
What will it be like in JULY???????? FEH! NOT looking forward to the summer!
We've been having a LOT of rain, too....THAT turns outside into a SAUNA!!!!!!

Today was an "anniversary" of sorts for Ray. He started doing pest control 35 years ago today. We went out to eat to celebrate. We sat at the bar, & I sat next to some OBNOXIOUS blabbering LOUDMOUTH, who kept WAVING HIS ARMS all around, & speaking LOUD ENOUGH for YOU to hear him! UGH!

We have lost a few "stars" the last few days...Peggy Lipton, Doris Day & today..Tim Conway!
May they all RIP! emoticon

Sorry for delay emoticon I continue to have problems with this laptop. I'm getting frustrated....if I type in more than a few words, it goes blank. Disappears... emoticon
Last couple of days have been beautiful. I got a looonnnggg walk/outdoor fitness this morning. emoticon Love to see the scenery and the snow on the tips of the mountains.

My Mothers' Day was great.....spent it with my son and 3 grandsons. Had a nice day and the little ones had fun.


I'm kind of "dragging" today. Not sure why emoticon Pushing myself to get things done here. I did a little gardening and cleaned the kitchen.

How is your weather?

Then...I read in the paper that a former columnist....WHO I LOVED READING HIS WORDS....died yesterday. He retired 2 yrs ago.....& I have missed his columns. I actually got teary eyed reading he passed away. HE WILL BE MISSED BY MANY!

A HAPPIER NOTE......I found out a cust (NICE 1..NOT PIA emoticon ) has a mother who went to the same HS I did! THAT may not sound like a BIG DEAL...BUT....the HS was in NY...& now...we BOTH LIVE IN FLORI-DUH! emoticon She was a Senior & I was a Freshman!
I thought THAT was PRETTY COOL....considering ALL the Catholic HSs (at the time) in NY!

YES!!! Glad the NYY are doing remarkably well.....considering all their injuries!
Also glad YOU are enjoying the games. I rarely get to see them!

How nice the Easter Bunny "hopped in" for the "little guys"! I FINALLY put all my Easter stuff away yesterday! Lots of bunnies, chicks, lambs & now PIGS! emoticon

Wowser!!!! Your bunny was much nicer than mine!! Flowers, chocolate and pigs!!! Wow! I got nuttin emoticon The Bunny DID come to my son's house and the three little guys were so happy and surprised! Was a nice Easter Day celebration.


I am SOOO happy baseball is here. Just love the game and my Yankees. Typically I arrange my days (and nights) to be sure I can see the games. Go YANKEES!!!! We are in second place....need to get into first emoticon

Yankees are doing much better, even with all our guys on the IL. 🕜 emoticon
When you say you miss the kids, are you referring to the kittens? I love my two sister cats. I adopted them, and had to get the two....as babies they always cuddled up with their arms around each other. I didn’t have the heart ❤️ to take only one. They were/are happy to be together.
Watching the game....7-1 YANKEES!!!

FRUSTRATIONS ABOUND W/THESE LAPTOPS!!!!!!!! emoticon

Sandy's neighbor sent HER a text....TELLING HER that she was getting tile deliveries... so... she was gonna park in her driveway. THEN...she told her...I DIDN'T TELL BARBARA!
When I talked to Sandy on Sunday...I told her about it....& I said I was a bit "PUT OUT" that they didn't even show ME the courtesy of a KNOCK on the door. I told her I was PISSED; bc I was SCARED seeing a car just SHOW UP like that! Sandy said...I DON'T BLAME YOU. Ana SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU! (So...she took MY SIDE)! LOL

I hope the NYY can REBOUND...&...they puts some games in the WIN COLUMN!

****I MISS THE "KIDS"!!!! emoticon

Still debating on whether to buy tix for Billy. He is such a great performer.... nothing like seeing him live!! emoticon

Well, the only great game we had was when CC pitched. Getting upset about the whole thing.
Now we are on to the Bosux..they are in the basement and that makes me happy

emoticon I am in the HOME STRETCH w/the "kids"....Sandy comes home Sunday!

Your opinion.....
I noticed a car parked in Sandy's driveway.....NOBODY ASKED " ME " IF THEY could PARK here. I had NO IDEA WHO IT WAS.....O.K....It is Sandy's neighbor across the street.
Maybe THEY HAVE some kind of "deal"....BUT...These people KNOW " I " am staying here.
I was a little FRIGHTENED to see the car there. Don't you think the POLITE THING to do would be to KNOCK ON THE DOOR & SAY...Hi Barbara. I am gonna park here. Sandy says it's o.k.?
WHATEVER.....I wouldn't EVER just use my neighbor's driveway as a parking lot...WITHOUT letting them know....Also...Sandy's paper has been "MIA" since TUES! Could these people be STEALING IT?????? Like I said...THEY KNOW I AM HERE!
I can't call about "NO DELIVERY"; bc I don't have Sandy's NEWSPAPER INFO!

As for the NYY......They have a LOT of injuries! They have MORE STARTERS ON THE D/L than in the STARTING LINE UP! TRY NOT TO PANIC.....It's EARLY!

When Ray & I went to our FIRST Billy Joel concert.....the TKTS were " $15.00"...& they were STILL AVAILABLE AT "SHOWTIME"! Naturally...this was 1982....BEFORE all the INTERNET SCALPERS could buy up all the tkts! The shows SELL OUT, many times, less than 1 MINUTE after tkts become available! Just another part of "TECHNOLOGY" I don't like!
Billy USED TO keep his tkt. prices LOW(er) than a lot of other performers....
Guess THAT has changed, too! WE haven't seen him for at least 10 yrs.
He performed locally on NYE a few times; BUT.....THOSE TKTS were OUTRAGEOUS....&...I wouldn't want to be driving around after a NYE concert anyway! TOO MANY BOOZEHAGS on the road! emoticon emoticon emoticon

HOPE YOU CAN GET TKTS....WITHOUT HAVING TO MORTGAGE YOUR HOUSE! emoticon

Weird chain of events....there was a cyclone snow/freezing rain (yes, you heard right) yesterday. A lot of panic among a lot of people emoticon The meteorologists were having a ball over this. Welllll..the never really occurred here. Yes, we did get some snow and freezing rain emoticon but the accumulation was minimal, and by 2:00PM all the "cyclone snow" was gone. As my Mother always said... so much ado out of nothing! emoticon


I am dying to go to the Billy Joel concerts here in Colorado. Prices are ASTRONOMICAL!! HowEVAH, it IS Billy and I need to find a way to be there.

Sadly....it won't last.....RAIN is predicted for the next several days! BLEH!
Sandy has DISH TV & when it rains....her TV goes OUT! DOUBLE BLEH!!!!!!!

Callie leaves "gifts" for Sandy, TOO.....ALL THE TIME! Sandy was awakened by a horrendous odor....at 4 AM......apparently "Ms. CALLIE" left her a "GIFT" on the rug in her bedroom closet!
I keep that door SHUT! emoticon emoticon I don't want her to leave ME that kind of GIFT; esp. at 4 AM! LOL
Oh, YES......YOUR CAT was CERTAINLY LEAVING A MESSAGE TO HER "UNCLE"! emoticon

I see bad weather is predicted.....so....I don't know HOW MANY GAMES WILL be played over this week end.

The guy I would REALLY like to see GONE from the NYY organization is BRIAN CASHMAN!
HE has made some outrageously BONE HEADED moves over the years.
I think KING "GEORGE" would have BOOTED HIS BEHIND OUT THE DOOR LONG AGO... IF......HE still ran things! emoticon

I, too, am not happy about Aaron Boone being our "manager". emoticon Many times, IMHO, I do not agree with his decisions. He seems happier sitting in the dugout for a TV commercial. Tacky.... emoticon

Is Miss Callie a female kitty? Speaking of kitties, here is a good one for you.....I have 2 beautiful well mannered cats - they are sisters. They always use their litter boxes and never a problem. EXCEPT - when my Brother was here one of the cats left a big poop in front of his door to the guest room he was staying in. emoticon Guess my kitty thought he was high maintenance as well!! Not an accident since.

Miss Callie may be "marking her territory", since her "Mommy" is not home. She wants you to know!! emoticon

Fingers crossed - is there an emoticon for that???? - that your laptop troubles are OVER!!!! I am trying my best to be patient and "get to know" this weird laptop.


emoticon Ciao for now emoticon

Let's GO YANKEES!!!! Sweep the rest of the series in Baltimore!! emoticon

Cloudy here today. I am at Sandy's taking care of the "kids" until April 14!
Ms. Callie has left me quite a few PRESENTS.... ON THE RUGS! emoticon

I AM USING THE NEW DELL. SO FAR.....AFTER THE "INITIAL" PROBLEM...IT "SEEMS" TO BE O.K. I HAVE TO TAKE IT TO SANDY'S HOUSE TO PUT HER WIFI INFO INTO IT.
"THAT" WAS WHERE THE PROBLEM W/THE OTHER ONE STARTED.

BTW.....I JUST GOT RID OF THE "OTHER" LAPTOP! WHAT A RIGAMAROLE!
THEY DROPPED THIS NEW 1 LAST FRIDAY. WHEN SANDY WAS TALKING TO THEM ON THURS., THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T PICK UP THE OLD 1 AT THE SAME TIME... .SO...IT WOULD BE PICKED UP ON TUES., MAR 19. O.K.
THE UPS GUY CAME....AFTER 5 PM...SO I WASTED THE WHOLE DAY WAITING....& HE SAID..."I AM SUPPOSED TO PICK 1 UP"! I TOLD HIM...I WAS TOLD YOU WOULD PICK IT UP "TUES". IT ISN'T HERE. (I LEFT IT AT SANDY'S WHEN I WENT TO THE DENTIST...& SINCE THEY WEREN'T PICKING IT UP UNTIL MAR. 19....NO RUSH TO GO GET IT.)

WELL....THAT STARTED A WEEK FROM HELL!
I CALLED ON TUES., & I "WAS" SCHEDULED FOR PICK UP....I WAITED ALL DAY... NOBODY CAME. SO....I CALLED WED.....THEY WERE "SO SORRY"...& SAID I WAS AN "URGENT REQUEST" FOR PICK UP "TODAY"....SO...I WAITED....AGAIN.....
IT'S NOW 5:30......NOBODY SHOWED UP......I CALLED AGAIN....
THIS PERSON TELLS ME....THE "URGENT REQUEST" TAKES "24 HRS"!
BY THIS TIME.....I AM REALLY LIVID. I WASTED 5 DAYS WAITING.....(INCLUDING ORIGINAL DELIVERY DAYS)...SO..THIS PERSON SAID....I WILL CHECK W/UPS.... MAYBE HE CAN STOP BY. I WILL CALL BACK. SHE DID.....
ONLY TO GIVE MORE BALONEY......THAT IT WOULD BE PICKED UP ON THURSDAY!
THEN SHE SAID....SHE WILL SEND AN EMAIL W/AN APPROX. TIME....SO...I CHECK MY EMAIL.....GET THIS.....THE EMAIL READS....."UPS DROPPED OFF RETURN LABELS. YOU HAVE TO DROP IT AT A UPS CENTER"! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
ALL THAT WASTED TIME! GRRRRRRRRRR!
RAY DROPPED IT YESTERDAY.....HE SAID....NO PROBLEM AT ALL!
THEY SHOULD GET IT BACK TODAY....EVEN THO IT IS BEING DELIVERED LESS THAN 5 MILES FROM WHERE HE DROPPED IT OFF! IT COULD WALK THERE FASTER! emoticon
I'M JUST GLAD THE STUPID THING IS OUT OF MY HOUSE!
I WON'T EVER DEAL W/OFFICE DEPOT AGAIN! BLEH!!!!!! emoticon

Cold is lingering, but I'm much better today. But I can't say I feel great yet. Slept really a long time for me (6 1/2 hours) but according to fit-bit I was up over an hour throughout that time. emoticon Would love a nap, but it's too early. Hubby hasn't gotten out of bed yet

emoticon Had a REALLY NICE DAY! Went to a St. Patricks Day Parade. Saw a few people I know. The weather was GORGEOUS.....A little HOT (84), but nice.
The parade was only 1 hr. We went into a bar & got some REALLY COLD BEER! YUM!
Then, we listened to some Irish music after we left the bar!
Those Irish sure know how to party! I LOVE that lively music!
Now, we are home! A really nice day....& now that we sprang ahead....it will be LIGHT until at least 8PM! Yeah! emoticon

I hope your friend can kick it. I emoticon I'm four years free, and the doctor already told me that when I reach the 5 year mark I will be "through". NO MORE MEDICINE! My sister had it over 30 years ago and is still taking medication. I consider myself totally cured at this point!

(It was inevitable that I would get it. Both sides of my family had several cases of it, but all of them lived many years after, including my grandmother, and that was in the early 50's when I was a little girl. (In those days, you only said the "C" word. you never fully pronounced it.)

Thoughts and prayers for your friend! emoticon

(He wouldn't give me any of the "QUAALUDES" I requested! emoticon emoticon
I never TOOK any of them, but..I thought I would ask! emoticon Do they still even MAKE them?????)The DENTIST thought that was pretty funny! emoticon

This laptop was driving me CRAZY yest! Lost the internet 6 times in less than I hour! I finally got a message......This laptop needs to be "reset"......so......I reset it! THAT took almost 3 HOURS..& when it was DONE......EVERYTHING was wiped out of it! I have to re enter ALL MY INFO...including PASSWORDS....(Who the HELL EVEN REMEMBERS PASSWORDS?)
I was locked out of all my bank info.....I needed a CODE to access MY BANK ACCOUNT...& I had to call them to get it....JUST what I FELT LIKE DOING...UGH....BUT...the BEST PART..
After ALL THAT AGGRAVATION........the INTERNET WENT DOWN.....AGAIN......
SO.......I caused myself ALL THAT AGGRAVATION FOR NOTHING....&...I have even MORE aggravation....bc it STILL goes out! UGH!!!!!

I talked to Dee today. She is in GOOD SPIRITS...& TRYING to stay POSITIVE!
I offered her as MUCH encouragement as I could!

Besides "SOAP' (LOL) the only soap opera that I watched was ANOTHER WORLD. emoticon Loved it and was so distraught when they pulled it off the air. We arranged a "AW Reunion" in NYC. Was a blast!! We got to meet a lot of the cast members. My FAVORITE character was Stephen Schnetzer..I got to introduce him to the crowd and then, he KISSED ME on the mouth. emoticon What a hunk!!! emoticon I still miss that show and have never watched another soap.

BTW, if anyone of you watched AW, Stephen's character was Cass Winthrop. emoticon

I used to watch GH...back in the day of Jessie & Phil Brewer, Steve, Audrey & Tom Hardy, Lee & Meg Baldwin etc! (REALLY GONNA SHOW MY AGE HERE).....
I remember "Scotty Baldwin".....was really Scotty "BENTLEY"! He was a product of Meg's 1st marriage. When she & Lee got married....he adopted Scott!
WOW! THAT had to be 100 YEARS ago! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My mother used to watch those 15 min. CBS shows....Love of Life, Search For Tomorrow, Guiding Light! There HAD TO be another 1, too. I don't remember. I think ATWT was always 30 min., then....it went to 1 hr. My mother was watching ATWT, when Walter Cronkite interrupted on Nov 22, 1963...reporting the assassination of President Kennedy.

emoticon I also enjoyed SOAP, and I have watched Y & R (and General Hospital) since 1963, when I was pregnant with my 1st and one of my friends was into the 15 minute soaps on CBS. We would watch all 4 in the noon hour. Eventually they went to 1/2 hour, and finally to an hour. I love it when they now show flashbacks with some of the actors who are still playing the same part after all these years!

Mareanne - I hate when that happens, and it happen often. In outlook, a "draft" is always saved somewhere, and when I find it, I can usually have success in finishing it. BUT, (that big BUTT as Lean Jean6 always says) most of the time it's lost and I have to start over. I haven't figured out where the messages go on here when you go off it.

We have been banking via computer since 1982 I think. We had a separate modem and a Commodore 64 computer. We had trouble only once really, and that was when they were still sending regular checks out. We sent in a mortgage payment but the person who entered it transposed the numbers and "shorted" our payment by $900. The receiving bank waited until the next payment was made and then tried to force us to wire the money to them immediately or pay interest for 2 months worth of the entire shortage. We had a copy of the check sent to us, which showed that we had the correct amount and they just entered it wrong. It took MONTHS before we could get the money to reimburse us for the wire transfers from the receiving bank, and they claimed they couldn't do it but they finally agreed to credit our account the $20 charge THEY had incorrectly charged us in the first place. Out bank had immediately credited our account with the $20 for their part in the wire transfer!
Talk about frustration! emoticon

The trouble is, this time it got caught where it stopped the flow of water to the tub, and that's what the problem was.

Today is another knitting day (this one for charity . emoticon projects) and then a canasta game with 6 of us.

Washing Machine is fixed. (A sock had worked its way into the pipe leading TO the drum, causing it all to back up and come out the front!)
emoticon

The "restoration team" was here and now we have to wait for the insurance company to tell us how much they'll give us, and then we have to pick out a new floor and have it installed. At least we can do washes, and won't have to work around a ripped up floor until they're ready to replace it. emoticon

We stayed out of the house for as long as we could to avoid the sound of the machines that are supposedly drying out the floor so they can rip up the old one emoticon . And tomorrow they're coming back to finish that part, and the repairmen should be here at the same time trying to fix the washing machine.

We had got some more snow, not much, probably an inch. For a couple of days we had single digit temps at night. emoticon was out today, with blue skies. Beautiful. Still chilly here, though.

Had my 7 year old here for an overnight. As always, we had a great time emoticon He's a great little boy, hoping he stays that way.

Ciao for now emoticon

Relaxing day, if you call relaxing listening to the machines whirring in the kitchen to try to dry up the damage done by a broken washing machine. They'll come back Monday to rip up the rest of the floor in preparation for a new floor that has to be put in, The relaxing part was spent in Shul this morning, then we hid in the bedroom to take a nap and closed the door to keep the sound i the kitchen!

Woke up early, and have been busy ever since. It started with the usual 4 calls to Israel to wish Shabbat Shalom to all my grandchildren there. (There are two married, one in America, and 5 still live at home.)

Then we're dealing with a washing machine breakdown and trying to coordinate adjusters and repairmen.But tonight we have our "usual" game of Spades with our neighbor, and tomorrow we go to Services early, and come home for an afternoon nap.

So it's one of the TGIF days! emoticon

I'm tired already. Cleaning out the closet took over 3 hours, and 5000 steps. I have only that which fits me now and some that will fit me when I lose half of the weight I intend to lose in the end!

I understand completely. It hit me the first time one of my slightly younger friends passed away..

You have to keep happy thoughts in your mind. Remember all the positive things in your life. Especially your family!

Unfortunately, a cruise would probably not be on my list, as my husband wouldn't go anywhere without having access to his ham radio equipment. When we go to Israel to visit the kids/grand-kids/great-grandsons he takes it along and just uses a wire to hang from the window (out from the building by about 6 feet) tethered with a soda bottle filled with water as a weight.) I hate flying, but that's the only way to go unless we were to go on the Queen Mary, but that is so expensive it's probably not going to happen.

Going to a "senior" luncheon. Usually, Larry prepares the food, but this time they have left over from a Brotherhood activity over the weekend, so we're going as "guests" today.
emoticon

Then it's off to Costco, where we never get out without buying something.I really have things to return, and they have to adjust my new glasses. emoticon

Then back home to teach my 8 year old friend how to knit!

Looking for new emoticons. Need one with glasses, and one to show knitting, crocheting or embroidery (or actually any hobby for that matter.)

emoticon Kind of a weird day. Felt drained. After work, I did my best to keep going....cleaned out a drawer, boxed a bunch of clothes for donating. Cleaned the kitchen, etc.

Still in a funk emoticon Not sure why, but I am sure it will pass.


Have a nice evening, ladies emoticon
