Checking in, as are the Danny and William kitty. This was at 3:30am. I got tired of hearing William cry behind the door. So I said screw it, opened it and took the gate down. They haven't tried to tear each other apart yet anyway. Danny ( orange tabby) is so freaking chill anyway. That helps I'm sure. Hope everyone has a good day today. I have a group of D&D players due here in a few hours. Hubby plays. They always have a good time.

Good morning!

So far, anyway. We have the doors open right now, but it's going to be 104* today. Yuck. Hubby is busy planning to enclose our deck so that Jessie can go out. No, she's not spoiled :rolleyes: Keeps him busy, right? He needs it, had been diagnosed with pseudo gout. So painful, and most of his joints are so swollen. Nothing is working for him yet, but can't take nsaids which probably would work. Poor guy. Anyway, Jessie is on his desk, helping him figure out what materials he needs. I hear him gently telling her "no, I don't need your help with the keyboard". Lol.

Stay safe and healthy :hug:

Well I haven't checked in for a while... My county is out of the red... masks are mandatory throughout Ohio... no issues with groceries or TP. Friends + family are still Covid free. Just passing my days with my critters, dr appts, housework, and a lot of movies + TV.

It's been very hot + humid in Ohio for about 2 weeks straight now. I don't think we've had a day under 85°. I don't go outside unless it's absolutely necessary. 🥵

Awesome!

Cats have a pretty complicated social hierarchy...they'll work it out in time. Glad your cat is being patient with him. :)

Might want to have him back in his own room if the D&D gets loud (always did when I played ages ago)

BTW, ever watch this:

My 85 year old parents live in Sebring, FL. They live in an assisted living center and are really locked down. We are renovating part of the house right now, getting it ready for them to move up here in a few weeks. They can't wait to get out of there, and I can't wait for them to come.

And yeah, it's sweltering here too... Mid 90's with asthma inducing humidityhot_and_sweating.gif

Been 90+ in both temp and humidity here for a while. Typical KY summertime.
AC going and windows dripping on the outside from condensation.
Nope not dual pane glass.

That sucks, glad you can get them out of here.

Lived in northern Tampa for 7 years. winters are nice but summers suck. At least it does not smell moldy all the time here.

FL type heat is normal here from mid July sometimes thru August.
At least we do not have the daily afternoon thunder sky flood every day here.

Now: 96F, feel-like temp of 100°

14% humidity and the air quaility is pants with the 15-20mph winds blowing dust/pollen/smoke around.
I live a block from a 6-lane and a 4-lane intersection also. Smells like hot asphalt death outside.

I did pick up a nice big tin of genuine Phillipine coconut water though...not from concentrate or diluted. Amazingly refreshing stuff. :)

first, we had manflu

now, we have mancovid. Which appears more deadly than womancovid

apparently studies back this up

my state had 9 deaths today, 8 were male
Dogcovid, not really trying to make a joke. Just trying to find half a smile in a sad situation.

Morning!

Hubby has started on the deck project. Jessie does not like the noise, or Hubby being outside. She does still like chasing a fly in my bathtub!

Happy Birthday @CaFF !!! :stars2::hearts::confetti:

Stay safe and healthy :hug:
Hu? really ... well den @CaFF
Happy birthday @CaFF Naturally, I didn't think to post here instead, lol but that's okay. 2x's is better anyway.

Thanks everyone!!


Got a bit of a sore neck/headache today, probably just how I slept. Sleeping in this heat is crappy.

But, not too bad here. Paid bills this morning, got a b-day text from Dad, got Milly her supplement for her food, and bought a couple things for myself that I've never had....for cheap. :D

Happy B, Caff. I got you on the other thread, too.
WHERE did you get the Aromamizer??? I want to surf like the wind to get one! 🙃
(I should know the look of all checkout screens by now. )
If you wait a bit the V3 will be out and I like it a lot better than the previous. Of course, that's just me. If you can find one on the cheap, I say go for it.

Better? How so? I'll get both. Never had 'em. For the price, why not.

I hope you're doing good, Deb. I had Mohs surgery on my back this morning. Thankfully he only had to do one 'scoop' vs. my nose a few years ago. They had to scoop 3 times. I now have a dimple on my nose. :rolleyes:

BTW, fever only lasted one night. I'm good, but really tired. 5hrs sleep. Nap City for me in 30. 😴.

Glad your fever did not last long. I feel the flavor is quite improved on the V3 due to the re-design of the airflow. I like the 1/4 turn cap a little better and now having the option of a 510 OR an 810 drip tip. It is also coming with a different sized chimney in the spare baggie for even more options on the airflow.

Happy B-Day to Meeeeeeeeeeee!


Fam was pretty generous on the b-day cash, so I splurged a wee bit.



Still, was only $35-ish for a sixer of 500ml pilsner and the 8yo Speyside single malt. Yes, you tend to get what you pay for, but with a bit of ice it ain't bad at all. :cool:

379 people in hospital; 41 in ICU. Sadly, 4 people have died since yesterday.

1008 active cases linked to aged care settings.

More than 1,633,900 tests have been conducted.

Young people, aged 20 -29, make up the most number of cases (nearly 1/4 of all infections).

Active cases by local government area:
Frankston: 47
Kingston: 52
Mornington Pen: 15
Monash: 72
Casey: 262

Masks/face coverings are mandatory. Do not leave home without your face mask.

There are just FOUR reasons to go out:
shopping for food and essential supplies
health care and caregiving
outdoor exercise
study and work (if you can't work from home).

Get tested if you have any symptoms and wait at home for your results. Do not go out.

We will get through this, together.

This text Full cabinet briefing leak to be announced tomorrow:

Metropolitan Melbourne will move to stage 4 restrictions (likely 12:00am Wednesday although no confirmation yet.)
This will be a New Zealand style lockdown that will last for at least 6 weeks.
Regional Victoria (including Mitchell Shire) will move to stage 3 restrictions.
Years 10 to 12 students in Melbourne and all students in regional Victoria will return to online learning, so their is no disadvantage for students from Melbourne.
We will return to school on Monday and this will likely be our last day.
All shops/businesses will close, except supermarkets, chemists, hospitals and petrol stations & restaurants and cafes will remain open for takeaway and delivery only.
Only 1 person from a family will be allowed out of the house at any time to go to the supermarket.
No one will be able to move more than 5km from there home (including bike riding.)
All public transport will likely be shut down.
Exercise will still be permitted, provided you wear a mask.
Some abattoirs will close, so their may be a shortage of meat.
All construction work will stop.

Morning!

We're doing ok here. Hubby is taking the day off from working on the deck. Jessie helped him dry off after his shower (she fights him for the towel), then helped him get dressed. Glad it's him and not me! Now they are watching youtube videos. I think I'll do some reading today, so some traveling from my recliner.

Stay safe and healthy :hug:

So those fares are pretty reasonable these days? How was the food? :teehee:

(Seems like there's a series of YT videos about that rail trip across northern Scotland, too. Good idea, I might watch those today.)

Night before last I got fired from my job in my dream. All night long, it seemed like, I was getting fired. It was disconcerting, took all day yesterday to shake it off.

Food was good I made a big salad, macaroni and tomatoes and a sub sammie.
did not have to tip or wait in any lines or put up with obnoxious fellow travelers. :D

today I am making beanie weenies with Bush's steakhouse recipe baked beans and fried weenie slices and some potato salad to go with. Still have lots of mac and tomato and salad.

Checking in and all is pretty good today. Samsung tech is coming back out Tuesday to look at the fridge again. Well, at least they are trying..........

William and Meko are so damn chatty with each other at 3am now. Don't know what the hell they are talking about. lol. Of course he was being all lovey dovey a moment ago and she pounced on him and tried to bite him. I said, See William, I told you she was a bitch lol. Wait till that cone comes off tomorrow, but he didn't even try to fight back but of course I yelled at her and she ran under the bed.

I need to take my older dog in Monday for her rabies shot. We had a damn bat at the back door last night when I was out there with the dogs and Major tried to grab it. He's fine as he had his shots not that long ago, but I need to get her done.

Death to all nasty bats

and pigeons! damn filthy birds. Dave is going tomorrow to get a couple of those big fake owls. I am tired of having to rinse off the patio every night.

That is the excitement for today so far. I hope you all at having a good Saturday
