Check-In 104:MBTA in Scotland

My friend Nick, who is my age roughly (late 50s) had a heart attack 2 days ago. He's recovering and has a good prognosis. Tim, my other friend who's my age, is fighting cancer. I don't like being at an age when my contemporaries have failing health.
One of my high school friends already has congestive heart failure. :no:

Uh oh. Maddie is time-stamped at her usual time, but there's no post. I guess her Internet troubles are not over. :no:
Maybe she needs a new provider?

CONGRATS!!! I know that feeling. It takes some time to get accustomed to it, and sometimes you may feel worthless. The first year might be difficult, but believe me when I say the mental weight off of you, as time goes by, makes a difference.


Meanwhile, I signed the closing documents for the city house (yesterday) and all was good. I called to put in a stop order for the water, but the water departments said a move-in order had already been created for next Tuesday. The same happened with the electric, while I was able to put in a stop order for the gas service. I know I will get a slight refund on my deposit for the gas service.

One of the evil stepkids decided to store a ton of her furniture on our screened porch. This time of year, when it's not hot yet, we like to use the porch. I've let The Wife know I'm not okay with this. :no:

Good morning!

scottydog, I only drank 1/2 of a black cherry White Claw. I do have to work, today. Tonight, is out weekly drinking night. As for mental health during this pandemic, it is taking it's toll on Kelly. She has been working from home, has only left the house twice, and is dealing with her brother's death with no opportunity to have some sort of closure. She hasn't even been outside. I'm trying to get her to either go for a walk, or go to the garden center to pick out some shrubs this weekend.

I hope Madeliaette can get her internet sorted out. With the pandemic, it is our main source of connection to the world. It has become a necessity.

Congrats of selling the house, Gary.

Ron and I cleared out the front flower bed, yesterday. He cut down and dug out all of the old shrubs. He also helped me clear an area along the back of the house for a new flower bed, where I will plant my blueberries. After our hearing, he went home to grab the chain saw, but it took him a couple of hours to do this. He is devastated, now. What did he think was going to happen? We were going to keep the status quo? Apparently he was in denial the whole time. As for me, I want to throw a huge party. I couldn't contain my excitement. It feels as if a huge weight has been lifted.
The only way you may correct the bad things in your past is to add better things to your future.

I keep forgetting what time of year this is. Every time I think about what I want to do "later in the year, as summer approaches" I realize the summer is starting this weekend. I was originally planning to replace the brake master cylinder on my car (I've had the replacement part for almost a year) but may not get to it. I need to replace both it and all four flexible brake line hoses -- the hoses as a preventative measure as they're over 14 years old with 180K miles. I don't need one blowing out due to age.

But first I'll do an early morning walk with Tim. I haven't communicated with him much this week -- I hope he's doing okay with his cancer treatments. Meanwhile, my other friend Nick is recovering well from his heart attack. :yes:

Good morning!

No hangover. I only had 3 hard seltzers in a 4 hour time span. Kelly was too depressed to drink. I found the phone number to a dear lady I know, who does free grief counseling. Kelly agreed for me to call her today, to see if she can help. In the meantime, I want to get her out of the house and take her for a drive to Wellington. I'd like to go to the garden center at the hardware store, and go to the reservation for a walk on the trails. Athena likes scavenger hunts, so I will make up one for the car ride through the country, and one for our walk. This evening, I hope to dig my plants out of Ron's yard, so I can landscape the yard Sunday and Monday.

I'm having issues with the Quit Claim Deed on the house that I have to do within 12 days. The County Recorder office is closed, due to the pandemic. Know is there to answer the phone, and the website does not have anything I can find to help. I contacted a patient who is an attorney. She even said it is stupid, and could not figure out what I needed to do. She did say that the DR court should not have given me 14 days to do this, knowing that the County Records office is closed. All she could do to help was tell me how to file for a motion of extension online. I'm panicking. My mom gave me the name of the estate attorney that both she and my mother-in-law uses. I hope he can help, or do the deed transfer for me.

Gary, I know what you mean. Time keeps slipping away. I thought with this pandemic, I would have time to all kinds of things, but instead, I am finding myself to be unmotivated to do anything.

One thing I love about my new residence, is the huge front porch. My old house did not have a front porch. This one has a nice breeze passing through it. Plus, it's Cleveland....there is plenty of entertainment to watch, as I sit outside. :lol: It's a corner house. Across the side street is a beautiful cemetery. Across the front of the house is an apartment building. The windows on the first floor of the apartment building are street level. The tenants in the corner unit use their window as their main entrance. You can imagine where my imagination went, when I first saw a man crawl out of it, and then turned around to kiss the woman inside the window. :lol: The order delivery take out often. When the delivery driver shows up, the woman is in the window and calls out, "Over here, sugar'" :lol:

I managed to finish the workday around 2:30pm rather than at 1:-00pm like I wanted. Received the official notifications the city house closed and received the wire transfer from the overage of the settlement within an hour afterward. I immediately put $6,500 of those monies into my IRA contribution for 2019 and now have to start contributing for 2020. Got my back adjusted by the chiropractor, dropped off #1 and #2 plastic at the public collection point, bought some groceries at Sprouts, and then picked up an order from Wal Mart. I'm rapidly stockpiling food and supplies in anticipation of another wave of this pandemic later in the summer or in the fall.

Meanwhile, I'm researching if I would like to relocate to Virginia or the Carolinas. NC seems a bit too red. I have a niece who lives in South Carolina. I don't think my one weird brother (her father) will give me her contact information. He's always been a bit weird like that toward communicating with family members.

Other than that, no serious plans this weekend. Probably some more house cleaning. I received my new 6-cup electric percolator earlier this week, so I should give it an initial washing so I can start using it next week.

I wouldn't worry. Whatever notification you got is just boilerplate. Deadlines mean nothing for the duration.
One thing I love about my new residence, is the huge front porch. My old house did not have a front porch. This one has a nice breeze passing through it. Plus, it's Cleveland....there is plenty of entertainment to watch, as I sit outside. :lol: It's a corner house. Across the side street is a beautiful cemetery. Across the front of the house is an apartment building. The windows on the first floor of the apartment building are street level. The tenants in the corner unit use their window as their main entrance. You can imagine where my imagination went, when I first saw a man crawl out of it, and then turned around to kiss the woman inside the window. :lol: The order delivery take out often. When the delivery driver shows up, the woman is in the window and calls out, "Over here, sugar'" :lol:
We need a pano of your view. :lol:

Received the official notifications the city house closed and received the wire transfer from the overage of the settlement within an hour afterward.
It's finally done. I was afraid there'd be yet another last-second glitch. :lol:

That looks great. I just emailed it to her. Hopefully she'll be able to load the page.

We had a nice brunch outside -- perfect weather and nice food. Now I'm ready for my nap :sleep:

Hmmm. That's a tiny bit odd. They don't have a door? :conf:

I'm researching if I would like to relocate to Virginia or the Carolinas. NC seems a bit too red. I have a niece who lives in South Carolina. I don't think my one weird brother (her father) will give me her contact information. He's always been a bit weird like that toward communicating with family members.
I wouldn't mind living in either Carolina, but they both tend to vote Republican more than Virginia does.

I set up my Mother's new Fire TV cube this morning. A little something to keep her busy during solitary confinement.
How's her attitude these days? Is she antsy to get out and about?

Very, although she finally went out for a walk one day this week. And she visited my Aunt who has COPD to help her out with some things. Other than that, it's just her and Chloe and my weekly visits.

Do your other siblings visit her once a week, too? I hope so. A lot of seniors are feeling very isolated these days.

That's interesting that you have extensive experience with wild pigs. I've never seen one in the wild. Except on TV which doesn't count.
Bavaria is literally crawling with wild boar. A pack is led by the alpha-female. She's the only one who is permitted to mate. Alas, inexperienced hunters frequently kill the alpha female upon which within days all other females in the pack get into mating mood. The result is a babyboom, or pigletboom rather. This way the problem increases exponentially and experienced hunters have been working for over a decade to get the packs back to normal social structures. Unfortunately, there are still fools who kill the alphas. Atm there are about 4-5 times as many wild pigs than hares. Pretty crazy.
They get rather a nuissance, destroying crops and even raiding gardens and waste bins.
