Re: What Are You Reading: The Sequel!

Currently Four Past Midnight.

When I'm done with this, I think I'll read something lighter.

Hi, y'all. :hello:

Yup, the grocery stores have AC. It's so muggy that when I come out of the store, my glasses fog up. :lol:

Aaaannd the daily rumbling of thunder has started. Queenie doesn't like it.

And, yes Scotty, winters here are nice - in my northern opinion. Sunny, dry and in the 70s usually.

Re: What Are You Reading: The Sequel!

Hi. Not sure I've ever posted in this thread.

Recently, I've gone thru my book case and read all the Stephen King books I own but hadn't read yet. :conf:

Currently on Bag of Bones.

I've already re-read all my favorites by Anne McCaffrey. :yes:

Re: Check-In #98: How have you been?

I remember the first moon landing. I was just out of high school. I had a summer job at a drive-in ice cream place. Just before the scheduled landing, business dropped off to almost nothing. So the owner closed the shop and took all us girls home. I walked in the door about 10 minutes before the eve...

Good afternoon, everyone! :hello: Yes, Scotty , we get a storm most every day. Sometimes it's just a little rain, or just some thunder, but every day. The rain from yesterday's storm is s-l-o-w-l-y being absorbed into the ground. It came down so hard and so fast that, well, let's just say that I'm g...

Morning. :hello:

This morning, after trying to go back to sleep, I switched on the light to find..... Queenie with her arms wrapped around my sneaker, staring at me with the most innocent look on her face. "I'm not doin' nothing".

Missed a day or two....sorry.

Good to see you Elara. Believe me, I know about feeling apathetic. 😑

I grew up reading Mad Magazine. Loved it! The first thing I would look at was Spy vs Spy!

Hope Gary made it home ok.

Aaaannd... it's raining - again. :rainstorm:

Good morning. :hello: ^ Gary has the right idea. I'm on my second cup. :) For not having any "official" fireworks in the immediate area, there sure were a lot of fireworks last night. :unsure: Plus, it thundered for a couple of hours in the late afternoon. No rain, just thunder. The rain was north a...

RJ, I do have one of those things to heat up in the microwave. They didn't mention putting heat on it at all, but I figure it can't hurt.

Hi! :hello:

Scotty, we are under a heat advisory here as well. It's the darned humidity!

But, I do need to go out in a bit. I need to pick up a prescription. And get gas in the car.

Hope everyone has a nice day. Stay out of the excessive heat!

Hey, y'all. :hello:

Not much going on here except me trying to do the exercises for my shoulder. The doc offered me prescription pain medication, but I turned it down. I'll make do with OTC meds.

Hope you all have a good day! :thumbsup:

Re: Infirmary Thread #16: LOL Is The Best Rx

So I had a.dr appt yesterday as a follow-up to my appt a month ago where the doc diagnosed "frozen shoulder", and ordered x-rays. The shoulder x-ray was normal - no medical reason for the frozen shoulder. The only cure is the exercises they gave me last month. :( Those exercises hurt so much! But, t...
