Re: My dear Joon...

It's time. I'm through here. There's nothing more to say, and I see that there's too much to do in the world. The murders of innocents continues to rise, the never-ending shredding of the best there is, and the death of courtesy has convinced me to move on. If there's anyone behind me, please turn o...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

One of our oldest friends died on Friday. Brad had multiple-sclerosis, but it was gallstones that were his undoing. His wife, Alice, is one of the sweetest and goofiest ladies I know, and my heart breaks for her. And a couple that we've known since we married, her mother is 98 and slipping away, so ...

Oh I'm so sorry! :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: It's so stressful, all of it, and your poor sister - I've done the same thing, I swear. Mike had a surgery, I can't even remember what it was now, and he was so little, had never been away from us since he was b...

Re: Eagle Cam! Watch Live!

Update January 19, 2019 We understand that everyone is very excited for the DC cams to begin streaming, but we are still waiting for our internet connection to be established inside the National Arboretum. As most know, the Arboretum is closed due to the government shutdown, which has significantly...

:hug: :hug: :hug: It's a nightmare, and this is Healthcare? - my 'Brought to You by Ancestry' 58%/42% Russian, Eastern European, Germanic Europe behind it is! Anyway, we await referral from neurologist before we put down one penny for anything. I was posting here about Michael. He choked on Sunday l...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Aw, honey... :cry: :hug: ...God...I'm so sorry. For us, it turns out the insurance does cover his prescriptions. The bad news is that the TD medication costs 7,000 dollars a month - which if it weren't so ridiculous I'd laugh. That's over twice what our income is a month - "Good news, sir! You ...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

My Honey has been diagnosed with tardive dyskinesia. It's permanent, and for him it manifests as a lot of mouth movements, his left eye is constantly opening and closing but not like winking or blinking, his right hand is constantly pinching, and he's dancing in place whenever he's trying to just st...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

First of all, Paddy, thank you for the beautiful E-cards :hug:. I love them both, but especially the New Year's one with all the clocks. Your mom, your sister and you are never far from my thoughts. The second opinion sounds like a good idea; I hope it all goes well. Enjoy your time off, sweetie :hu...

Re: My dear Joon...

The 25th started out well. I woke up, and went about my routine, adding the hour and ten minutes needed to bake the casserole I'd assembled the night before. By 11 AM, we were dusting snow off the car, and loading up with said casserole, 2 liters Coke, and last presents. When we got to the house, Mi...

Re: My dear Joon...

The library charged us 24.95 for the paperback. This morning I took my one returned Christmas card, after adding the missing suite number, and dropped it back in the post. I called Sister yesterday, and found out that was the problem. It was nice of the crew not to cancel the stamp. I love Sister. S...
