We were under a heat advisory, I went for a walk at 7:30 this morning and can home soaked in sweat, Then about noon I got a lightning alert, checked the radar and boy were we in for it. We had storm, lighting, hail, strong winds no electric or internet for about an hour. Then another hour of rain by then the electric and internet came back on and the temps were down 20 degrees. I have only lived in AR for a year. Mom has lived here for 20 years. She said this doesn't happen every year, but once it starts expect it most afternoons,

A bit late getting our July chatting "venue" going, but will set it up after a few words to finish off June. So nice to read what you have been posting. My life is a "nightmare" most of the time, so it is a relief to just sit at the computer and try to type a few words. Last evening at bedtime we had a huge thunderstorm that scared the dog and made me worry that some limbs might come down on the roof. Had just gone to sleep when the dog got sick on the rug and wanted to go outdoors. His eating has been irregular lately. My husband gives him "snacks" which are not foods the dog should eat -- it is a constant problem that I just can't solve. Anyway, the dog is calm today and hasn't lost his appetite. Got his two different flea and tick medications for the month. The weather is building up for another storm soon.

Dogs share our lives more completely than does any other animal. Since their domestication, dogs have accompanied and served us in many ways. Two apex predators managed to find mutual benefit in a close relationship that is considered "commensal" -- dogs developed an intense, familial bond with humans.

The lady down the street moved in about a month ago with 3 big dogs and a small dog, She keeps the dogs in pens in the back yard at night and when she isn't home. I don't think the pens are big enough for a big dog and she puts 2 to a pen. When someone is home she lets the dogs out and they run every where. Several of us have suggested she get a fence and she keeps saying she doesn't need one. She says the dogs were kept in an apt and she has been told she can teach them to stay in the yard, we just have to be patent. I personally haven't seen anything I would call training. Well this morning a mother was sitting out watching her 7 and 4 year old play in the sprinkler. Boy did those children yell when those dogs came running in their yard. Have a feeling someone with a little more clout will be saying something about a fence. That Momma wasn't happy.

I looked at our Shelter site and there are only three dog available for adoption. All big ones too.

I planted three more plants that DIL and Son gifted me. I have two more to go.

Got the van cleaned out from kayaking and ready to pick up GKs from other Gma tomorrow.

Sewed eight more face masks. Why is sewing such a cluttery activity? I really need a sewing room.

Still want to drive the van through the car wash. Maybe, I will just hose it off. Been a production day. Bud is happily snoozing at my feet.

Hello Group -- A quiet Saturday in our part of the country (inland from Charleston, SC). The protesters are still out and about, but they are slowing down some. Thirteen years ago there was a bad sofa store fire that killed 9 firefighters. There has been a memorial for the men and women who were killed there. Someone decided to tear down the crosses and destroy the area of the memorial. No sense in that -- they were doing their job and the roof caved in. Will have to see if they find the person(s) who did this. Our air quality isn't so great today -- those dust clouds from Africa are starting to filter into our area. Just looks like clouds, but at sunset and sunrise you can tell the difference. Did some yard work, but don't want to breathe the "bad air" too much. Our Florida son, his wife, son, and daughter are going on a nine day trip to try and find a college for the son. Probably not a good idea (they will drive through six states), but it isn't too safe to be in the area of Florida where they live right now. The numbers of cases and deaths in South Carolina are going up each day -- people just can't stay away from the beaches. So nice to read all the posting and to hear from Elsie again. Right now our SPCAs don't have many animals -- since people are staying home more, they have either decided to foster or adopt the available dogs and cats (and bunnies and chickens). Prayers to all of you as you try to do some summer activities. We just keep "living the cancer life" -- my husband has another CT Scan on Thursday.

Accomplished a few things today......finished laundry and getting ready to take the last load off the line, filled 2 large bags of things to donate as I am downsizing, finished shampooing the carpet in one room so will be getting the hallway done next week, then the living room. Also moved some things out of the junk room to my intended sewing/craft room.


Daisy and I shared pork steaks........I got the meat and she got the bones.....lol


Take care............Elsie

Hi Elsie, Gland to have you back. I live 45 minutes from Portland. But have stayed away from the city other than doctors appointments and grandkids.

Got the kayak out again today. It feels so good. I plan to sew the rest of the day.

Buds is not too keen on kayaking anymore. So I don't drag him along. He seems content just snoozing at my feet.

I live in town of 2100 between a town of 178 and 1098, We are quite with no virus. I worry about my daughter, ICU charge nurse in a hospital just outside Houston TX. She says her hospital was the clean hospital, but there are so many patients that the dirty hospitals can't take anymore and the dirty part of her hospital is getting bigger and the clean part smaller. Being an ICU charge nurse and a code rapid response responder she travels between the two.. Rapid response is anytime a Dr or nurse needs help NOW and it isn't a code blue.

I've been MIA for quite a while now due to family business. At the end of May my granddaughter and her 3 little ones moved back to Michigan so I've been enjoying having my house back after 8 years of someone living with me.


We are out in the boonies between 2 towns so haven't had as much exposure to the virus and so far none of my family has gotten it. We live 1 mile outside of a town of 93 but between towns of 12,000 and 5,000.


I continue to volunteer in the gift shop at the hospital now that we have reopened. We still have to wear a mask when someone enters the gift shop.


Take care and be safe.......Elsie

Yes, I have been avoiding some of the news too. I think some is important.

My greenhouse is coming along. Took younger GKs to Trail of Two Forests by the Ape Caves on Mt. St. Helens. It was a perfect short hike for me. I asked them if they wanted to do another hike with me in a couple weeks and they said "yes". I am thrilled. Going to take them to Catherine Creek in Lyle Washington at the east end of the gorge. It also has an open and accessible trail.

We all went out on the boat today. The river was amazingly calm. No big ships and no wind till about 5PM. I even kayaked. I think I can do it by myself with the van as long as I don't have to walk far. The kayaking doesn't hurt the back. Just the loading an unloading. Suppose to rain tomorrow, but I am pumped to try it by myself Sunday or Monday.

Sorry for being "missing in action" lately. Weather has been yukky -- quite cool (breaking records for this time of year). We hired someone to paint our front fence. They were almost done, but now it looks like a "pop-up" rainstorm is stopping their progress. We do listen to the weather report. Has taken 5 gallons of paint so far -- may take more if some of it washes away. Haven't been able to walk our neighbor dog with our dog -- Bella has been "in heat" for about two weeks. Sure wish the owner would get her "fixed" -- she is eight years old and she doesn't need to go through this process every few months. Haven't had to do much watering of the lawn and bushes. Supposed to be up in the 90s by Sunday, however. Our DIL had wrist surgery this morning for her "carpal tunnel" problem -- her second surgery (did the left wrist a few months ago). Our granddaughter comes and helps me while my husband is at chemotherapy on Tuesdays. We found a couple of items for her to give to her father on Sunday for Father's Day. Still various "demonstrations" around our area -- they want all the Civil War statues removed and names of people who were on the South's side during "The War Between the States". It was the 5th anniversary this week of the 9 people (African Americans) who were killed during a bible study in downtown Charleston by a racist. Very sad and sorta fits in with what is happening with the "killings". Really can't stand to watch the news anymore. Have enough to be concerned about without hearing all the "rage". My husband has another CT Scan for his stage 4 lung cancer on July 2nd. Nothing much is being done for our granddaughter -- they don't do the scans as often since there is no treatment. Very glad to read about the good test results for your grandson, Cathy. Sometimes these situations resolve. I think that the cancer in our family goes all the way back to my grandfather that I never met -- he had a brain tumor that killed him. Never met my father, either, but do have a picture of him. He died before I was able to track him down in California -- he didn't want to be a father of a girl, so I guess that is how things work out. Blessings to all of you who are out and about and trying to shop and keep families going. I try to only grocery shop once a week, but still run out of things like milk. At least there are some fresh fruit and veggies now in the area. Take care/keep sharing/stay hopeful...

Lennie, Thank you for such a well said and thoughtful post.
Mary Alice, I have often said this feels like the 60s.

Locally there was a peaceful demonstration scheduled for tomorrow, but the anarchists and antifa group from Portland have decided to join it. So fearful for all our mom and pop businesses in historic downtown as the planned route is not on the highway with the big box stores. It is with our little stores that are already struggling. Praying it stays peaceful.

Good news. Grandson's MRI was good. No AVM for him. Granddaughter was done today after the covid testing. Apparently they have to sedate her to inject dye. She went home with xanax to take before returning for rescheduled MRI on Thursday. Praying the aneurysm is reabsorbed and frankly that the AVM decided to depart on it's own. If all is good with the aneurysm then the gamma knife procedure to zap the AVM will be scheduled.

I'm fine. I live in a town of 2100 were 70% are over 60. The only way this effects us is we talk about how bad it is and how glad we are we live in the sticks and then pray for our family that doesn't.

I think this is a lot like the race riots at the high school I went to. The students may not have liked that we were forced to integrate, but we didn't riot, outsiders came on campus and started trouble.

Here is our "chatting" place for the month. Sending lots of prayers for sick family members and doggies who are "under the weather". Such a scarey world that we live in these days. The large city of Charleston, SC and some of the small towns are being invaded and destroyed by rioters. Not a good thing because of the number of people out of work and our rising numbers in the state of Covid-19 cases and deaths. Very sorry about the incident(s) to set the country into such an "uproar". Stealing, burning, trashing, hurting others doesn't bring "justice". We need to focus on poverty, the loss of so many people to the pandemic, the failing economy, the closing of so many of our "institutions of learning", and a return to the freedoms that our country was founded upon. May those "in charge" use wisdom and concern to bring a change. Voice your opinions, tell us how you are coping, share how you are making changes in your lives.
