Thanks, Steve:) hope you had a good weekend.
thanks, Megan and Steve
Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, Helen.
we have come along way in the past 2 years:)
Hi, everyone...had a great trip. Have I missed anything important? Haven't had time to read back.
Good Evening Friends!I guess soldier boy is happy with the Skin's win. Here's to the Ravens tomorrow night to do the same!I'm just working in my emailsLet me hear from some of you & if you have a guest - order on their behalf......... Just trying to get dinner menu for 10/18 finalized....Snake in my bed.... that is toofunny... to us ... not to Wanda
Thanks Steven & Megan Yes Skins Won...good game!!!
Sounds like a good Sunday for many of you..Especially the REDSKINS fans.... SPEAKING OF "RED"RED - YOU STILL HAVE A LOT OF BIRTHDAY TIME LEFT ! HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT DAY! xoxo
Jo, do you want us to pre-order our dinners?
glad you are back Wanda, did you have fun, did GeeGee?
MITS: Thought of you this morning as I drove home in a driving rain! So glad to hear the walk and the birthday party went well!DEB Glad your walk went well too...it is for such a Good Cause...God Bless Us, Every One
Deer and racoon having their evening snacks at Pix PA...
Hedgie In a way yes! I am about to select from everything on that dinner menu the items that get the highest vote from those attending. Then I will publish what the majority chose.... That evening you will actually order your meals.I said I needed a snack and Hubby handed me an apple... I really meanta Sweet Snack.. I guess I'll settle for a Crunchy Snack......
I think I'll watch Cold Case in a little while.......
What? I'm confused, will we just order from the menu on Saturday nite? Or we have to decide now....
Hey, Maddie!!! How are you, kiddo??!!
yep, I am too, Jo
Ooops, someone hijacked my identity...
Hello, Maddie, how are you?
Me, too, Jo...Cold Case and The Unit, and tape Brothers and Sisters!
Glad to see all the travelers home safe and sound.
No, that was me, my kid was just using my computer, she must've logged into google- I didn't realize.
Helen, it was a wonderful weekend. GeeGee hasn't been anywhere in the Motor Home for over a year, maybe two. She was delighted to see the trees begining to change colors and seeing her nephew (my cousin) was very touching. He is the last member left on my Dad's side of family. He was recently married to a sweet young thing, 20 years his junior. We all just love her. Hope they stay happy. Mom ate well all weekend. We even did a little shopping.
Mattie - look at the dinner menu and tell me what you think you would like to order for your dinner when you are here in October.I can only have so many items from the menu because the group is reaching 40 people. I need to know what everyone thinks they will want..I am hoping it all adds up to what everyone would want. So maybe pick a soup, an appetizer, a salad, and a main dish. Do you think Justin will come?
thought it was our little lady from Bluefield.....:)
glad you had a nice time Wanda:)
Yeah, I know, sorry, they share a name, her computer is acting up, she got on mine and logged me out.
Aahhh... Mattie is not here- that was me.. So we need to pick something from the menu now.
Hope to hear from Paula soon - I didn't miss her did I.Don't know when Lollie & Jack are pulling in.. don't think they had any time line. Retirement at its fullest!
That's who I thought it was, too, Helen and Megan!! Then realized the spelling was different...LOL!Glad GeeGee had a good time and ATE, Wanda! See...it is all most probably about the company!
Sounds like she has computer skills like her Ma, Megan!
JO - I send you my choices, hope I did it right....but majority rules, I didn't see anything on the Menu that I wouldn't like! xoxox Thanks for all your hard work !
Sounds like a glorious week-end WANDA !
Jo, I noticed (on reading back) that you are fighting Stink Bugs. We are battleing them at our house too, and the Motor Home was full of them. We got a platic cup and put water and dish detergent in it. Mixed it up and caught the bugs with a tissue and plopped them into the mixture and that works wonderfully.
Lynn, you are most likely right, but I hope those prednisone pills are kicking in so she won't need company to make her eat. I would go there and cook every day (I have done it before), but she won't hear of it.
GLAD TO HEAR I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE BATTLING STINK BUGS. I USED TO CALL THEM TREE HOPPERS...THE OTHER PERSISTENT PROBLEM I HAVE IS EARWIGS! YUCK!
Photos are posted on Wanda's Wishes of weekend trip. I tried to put them in order, but turned out all screwed up. Check out how pretty the foliage is already.
GREAT PHOTOS, WANDA! The Y lake is pretty, couldn't even try to spell it on here!Brenda is a beautiful...like the rest of your family!I like the reflection of GENE in the front door plate glass!xo
Bubbles and Shampoo time, catch you all later before heading in to work tonight..TTFN xox
Good evening. I just want to thank everyone for my birthday wishes. They are all very much appreciated. I've been gone most of the day to a funeral. Not mine thankfully. I'll see y'all tomorrow. Again THANKS for all the wishes.
RED, I've been gone most of the weekend,so I will wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY now and by the way, I just happen to know that you are 39, just like the rest of us!
Nice pictures, Wanda.Better make sure to include the #1 Jimmy in that appetizer list, Jo. Suzanne will want it for sure..
Good evening again, friends!
Excuse me Wanda, but I am 29!
I forgot, thank you Mits!
Still watching Cold Case...Megan - I could take the #1 with a salad and be in heaven! Welcome home Wanda...... They found a show for you calledSnake in my bed Love that pic SharonBBL
Hi Everyone who's back home. Wanted to mention, especially Megan would like this,---I sent an email to E.M.Yahoo group called "Brussels in Bloom" It has 3lge. pics & I see that some of you saw them. I can never view pics on there. Went to the first one that was posted & I get blank frames w/tiny x in top left corner.If others can't view, I will put them on blog.Wanda, understand you went to Uniontown!!!!Glad GeeGee enjoyed trip! My Mother's whole family was from little nearby town called Republic. My Polish grandfather was in the coal mines. Best times of my life as a child was going there for holidays, summer vacation & had aunt, uncle & 2 cousins next door & lots o0f other relatives nearby. Penny candy at 2 small groceries!
Ok- I'm curious, this snake in my bed show- was it an actual reptilian snake or was the snake a dude??
your welcome, Sharon:)
Yeah, I can't ever view pics on that Yahoo site either.
Wanda, the pictures are wonderful, and Brenda is very pretty:)
SHARON, I am so sorry, I forgot that you are 29, you did tell me that once before...I'll try to remember next time.JO, what on earth is SNAKE IN MY BED?? Must be my nightmare!Yes, Brenda is a real cutie pie and the most wonderful personality. Her cooking skills are out of this world.
Loretta, I know Republic very well. I was raised in Brownsville, Pa. until I moved here when I was 13. My Dad worked in the coal mines for many years as did my cousin, Leornard.
Hooray, they loaded!!! Has some small print, so double click. Megan, will you plan something like this for next spring?? LOL
My last comment was about putting the Brussels pics on blog.Earlier today Norma annouced that Animal Planet was having a show called, "Snake in My Bed" & that she probably wasn't going to watch it. I asked if it was shot at Wanda's house??!!Brownsville, huh? We went there many times. When I was real little, sometimes my Mom & I would take train from DC & Browsville is where it stopped, I think. Then my uncle would pick us up. Grandparents' street was "red dog"& cousins and I would climb some slate piles like they were mountains!!
So Wanda and Loretta: You must remember the old pot-holey Pennsylvanie Turnkpike!!RE: Yahoo'w with attachments and pics: sometimes I have to go to "My attachments" and then click on the sender and sometimes I can get them that way, sometimes not!LORETTA: I got Brussells fine!MEGAN: I want to know how you make your pictures show up LARGE when you send one!
Sharon: I'm playing YOUR Randy Travis CDs - guess I better send them soon!
I'd like to ask everyone to remember in prayer the victims and the families of the Maryland State Police Medevac accident in Maryland early this morning. A truly tragic accident. Many loved ones affected by this sad event, death in the face of a selfless act of providing care to the injured....
You're so right. Margy, terrible trajedy. Don't know if you were on here around noonish, but I told about the park being about 2 miles from my home.BTW, we never used the turnpike. Going from DC(MD) to Uniontown was either up good old Rte. 40, thru Cumberland, etc. or you could go Rte. 50 thru VA & turn off at Romney.
MEMA: You have HOT MAIL!XO
Loretta, this is so mind boggeling. I think my Aunt and Uncle lived on Red Dog!! I'll have to ask my Mom. SEKULA was their names. You were probably too young to remember. I'll let you know what my Mom says. SMALL WORLD!
We also took Rt.40....Pennsylvania Turnpike was still full of potholes the last time we went to Chicago. Really hard on the Motor Home. Gene always had to tighten up all the nuts, bolts and screws when we got back home.
Loretta, Yes, thanks, I did read your posts about the location of the accident. I am so sad about this. We have those Maryland State Trooper medevacs in our county often, not sure if Trooper 2 has ever been here, but 5 and 3 have. I see them fly over near the apartment on the way to and from our City Hospital fairly often. Regarding the turnpike, I am not ever sure where my family was going when we were on it: Probably to Michigan. I remember when the "first" four lane highways were built, for me, near Frederick MD. And then Frederick Coounty, VA, had the crazy "third lane" for passing....Route 50 to Romney: Been on it a bunch! xo
Yes, indeed, Margy...Prayers for all those involved in that tragic accident.
Baby Luney all alone in the Pen !
Wanda, that was not the name of the street, that's what it was made of! Old reddish tan shards of something left over from mining. They finally put in asphalt.
A Zoom would be nice right about now on the Pandlet !
I think their area was called Red Dog Patch, for the same reason...the red stones that covered the road. There was also a creek nearby, but I can't remember the name.
Its OK Wanda Sharon doesn't look her age so its a very understandable mistake. And we all know you have a little stress and hopefully you are not watching that program!!!
In Republic, PA, my Mom and her 5 brothers and sisters all went to Redstone High School.The youngest, my Uncle Johnny, (from Pittsburgh) just passed in April. He was 80.Think there was a HS Reuion he & my aunt attended not too long ago!The family name was Kuzniar. Haven't been to Republic for 15-20 yrs, as no family left there.
GLO, I was never very good with numbers. LOLI wouldn't dream of watching a show with the words Bed and Snake in the same sentence! I wonder what my snake did while I was away? There is never any food lying around...maybe he will starve to death!
HI GLO ! NICE TO "SEE YOU ! Momn is with the Pandlet now..
Baby Lovin' going on in Atlanta !
Full coverage on MSP Chopper crashwith photos
Got Panda cam up---Whole Lota Scratchin' Goin' On"!!
Thx Jo. Gonna watch News---
Hi, everyone. I am glad everyone is home safe from their travels. It is raining and thundering here. I wish it would rain all night, but that isn't going to happen.
Just saw on news that Chopper was planning to land at Andrews due to the poor visibilty, but evidently couldn't see the runway lights. I would guess the crash site is about 4-5 miles from AFB.Super tragic. I know if we're driving on Suitland Parkway, some of the runways end there and you see little blue lights.Not real bright, but rest of runways are probably brighter.
Mema - Thank you for the MSP link.
Good Night, all.Time to pack it in for work tonight.Catch you sometime in the Morning light.Take Care, and Prayers.xo
Good Night, Margy. Have A GOOD ONE.
Night to all leaving....Just checked Jo's link and there is map of area. If the bottom of that map extended 1/4 to 1/2 inch, my street would show. Mine is D'Arcy off of Ritchie Rd. Kipling is on left of map and on right is Steve Dr., which is right behind me.I didn't even know park property extended to Ritchie RD. We only see trees there.
SO much blogging going on!!!Hi everyone. Red, SO glad it wasn't your funeral!! You know that old joke about "I can't start my day until I read the obituaries and make sure my name isn't listed"??? On the serious side, sympathy for the loss of your friend or relative.Wanda, don't you dare watch Norma's show! Yuck!! Your pics were great!Margie, I know my daughter is wondering the same thing..if either of those guys were ones she's met before. Hope your night goes okay.That crazy PA Turnpike is ALWAYS under construction. And I can't believe that they've never bypassed that Breezewood mess in all these years. I take 68W and then get back on 70 north of Morgantown and avoid that entirely.Well, time for the tub. Good night and God bless. See you all tomorrow. Rah rah Skins!
GOOD NIGHT EVERYONESLEEP TIGHTPRAYERS FOR ALL
P.S. I didn't have any trouble opening the pretty Brussels pics!
OH, YES. HOOOOORAY SKINS AND EEEEEEERS!!!!!
Hi to the Midwest people I saw aboard, Glo & Deb! You can have our rain now. I think we got enough---not heavy, but off and on since Wed.Guess it would be worse if we were in Maine! Nor'easter Kyle!
Glad your teams all won, the Vikings lost again. I think they are going to be bad this year, already 1-3. Twins won and now must wait to see what the White Sox do tomorrow against Detroit. Go Detroit!! If Sox win, play-off on Tuesday. I have had a long day, the walk early this morning, then I mowed. I am tired and ready for bed. It will be nice to have my house back after this week, college girl starts student teaching on the third!Night!
***GOOD NIGHT, ALL***jiM
Guess I best get in here before everyone leaves. Wanda your pics on your blog sites are really good!Deb Hope your legs don't cramp tonight! I am sure you're looking forward to have things back to normal soon within your home.
Oh No! Jim you beat me off of here!Good Night Everyone whether you are here or there!Peace to you & yoursPrayers for everyone's needs being said (((hugs))) Loretta - are you still here? Nite

Rain is always essential, though I realize it gets tiresome for people after a while. We really didn't get that much rain this weekend. But now I hope for not too many rainy days during October, due to field trips starting soon. Glad to see the sun this morning. I still have several hummers here.
I have alot of hummers still here too Megan. They better get on down the road or they will freeze their little hummingbutts off.
I told mine they could come into the house for the winter..

Norma yes not as many. Some black ones though.bbl
DEB & HELEN!!---I was trying to say what you folks said---I just got it "backwards"!!---saw the blackbirds there this am!!!---Thanks for getting it straight!!!!
Start in a week, Norma. This one has me pondered, Helen, can't get anything to open, not even the taskbar- she did something.. will take me hours to figure it out- if I even can. Off to buy me an expensive sticker from the MVA..
wish I could come up and help with my limited knowledge.....e-mail Jo, maybe her Aaron can help:)
eagle at BWO
How bad are your stickers for vehicles? My pick-up only cost $46.00, if I lived in NE, it would cost me 10 times that much, IA it would be about $150.

THANKS DANA!!---for the NETHY--DESHAR update!----JIM gave it to me yesterday---
The wind is blowing at BWO.
I don't remember, Deb, it is one of the neccesary things,you have to do:)

Paula it is such a hard thing to do but I am sure you now rest a little easy as far as Mom not being alone and getting the care she needs. Some of us have already been there with our loved ones so our prayers and positive thoughts will keep being there for you & the family.

Has everyone worked JIM'S puzzle??(guess we will never know who this handsome man is?)
Well Norma from what the email saysI am assuming that is our Movin' Grovin' JIM! I remember when we were encouraging him to attend the HS reunion last year... Did you get the entire puzzle figured out - I didn't quite master the bottom line.....
Mits - I missed the bears..
I keep waiting for a human to pop up on the MAINE NEST;)
MORNIN' PAULA!!---The hardest part is over!!(finding a place)---I bet you will be surprised how fast she adjusts to her new environment!!---Visit. my friend last wk in Winchester!---I was so uptight, etc.---so surprised---she looks so much better--healthier--& relaxed!----wasn't complaining!! someone is helping her dress, etc.--thoughts will be with you & your brother----only complaints---were in re: food!!---ho!---friend would only eat certain things---says she explains this to chef---& they listen!!--- ho!---just take her some special foods---GOD BLESS---
Yup, Norma...we are all planning the menu...what we can take that she will eat...

I have Jim's photo now for everyone to see. Moving
1 BURROWING OWL -- count him! ho!

GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE...JO, will the Rumsey menu be the same on Saturday as all other days?RED, thanks for finally putting a face with our JIM. YOU ARE DA MAN!

I HATE STINK BUGS
WOWSIE WOWSIEWhere are you SissyLITTLE LUNEY ALL ALONE
The view sure puts his size in perspective
Monday, September 29The difference in the cub is astonishing! Because my shifts are a week apart, the developmental changes are blatantly obvious at first glance.From the date of my last entry, when he weighed 764.3 grams to this morning’s weight of 1023.3 grams, the cub has gained more than double the amount of his estimated birth weight in just one week. The difference in Lun Lun’s mothering is also evident. She is taking more time to eat, and in turn, the cub is nursing more. She is able to leave the cub for longer periods of time – on average, approximately 20 minutes. These separations come with almost no objection from him, which is an indication that he is relying much less on his mother for body heat.And finally, the following is for those of you who have been asking for conversion information for centimeters and grams:Centimeters to inches / feet Grams to ounces / pounds 2.54 cm = 1 inch 453.59 grams = 16 ounces (1 pound) 30.48 cm = 12 inch (1 foot) 1000 grams (1 kilogram) = 35.2 ounces (2.2 pounds) Debbie FordeCoordinator, Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation ProgramCuratorial Assistant
I despsie these stink bugs- I would like to send them all back to Asia where they came from. My window screens are covered with them.
I love stink bugs!
