Good morning TGP!

 

I'm having some ginger tea and getting ready for the workday.  20% of the company I work for got laid off a couple weeks ago, but I managed to hang on to my job.  We're all dealing with the changed environment at work.  I'm thankful I'm not in the unemployment line today.

 

Hugs,

Lydia

Rub it in why don't you. jeez. Well today is a relaxing day, it is my Sunday now. Actually got some of the things I wanted to get done , done yesterday. Was able to get the bracket for my new fuel pump welded and painted on the wagon. I was also able to get the license plate bracket and light mounted on the new explorer. now just need to wire the light and get some license plate bolts.

 

Don't blame me for this weather, I was in Michigan when it started and had to deal with it as well. LOL. Luckily I left before the ice storm hit. Dodged the bullet with that one.

 

Today more work on the wagon, more fuel system plumbing. But I am on the downward side so it should go easier. time will tell.

 

Stay safe and warm everyone.

@KymmieL Hey, I worked hard to get to the point where I could have some leasure time.  Yours time is coming. if your wagon is anything like my boat was, it will take a lot more time to finish the last few things than you expect.  And of course something you think is finished won’t be.

 

Hey, make sure you use license plate screws that aren’t easily removed. Like torx head or even safety torx.  Some one blame you for bringing the storm to Wyoming?  Last I checked Michigan is east of Wyoming and the storms usually come out of the west or northwest.  
 

Exercise classes went well. Unfortunately, I am usually pretty beat after the aqua Fitness class so the strength and stretch suffers some.

Good morning, everyone!!! Waiting for the coffee to kick in - dogs have already gone back to sleep after their walk and breakfast. Maybe I should, too. 🙂 Enjoy your day!!!

Good morning everyone,

 

I've been on a family vacation for five days, and there were two newborn babies there. So you know where this baby whisperer's attention was. Yes I've still got the touch.

Good morning, Mindy! I was wondering how your time away with family went. Sounds like it was heavenly for you. 💕

I guess it’s morning although I don’t know that I want it to be.  
 

First I was awakened by a fire truck that sat nearby for about 40 minutes.  I suppose they were here to assist a paramedics crew.  They always send a truck and with an EMS. Around here.  Everywhere I suppose.

 

then I couldn’t get back to sleep.  I made brownies last night and I think they kicked in to help keep me awake.  We ate too many, but we hadn’t had made from scratch brownies in a long time.

 

our dog seems to have a bad case of fleas.  I’ve bathed her used the liquid flea treatment on her twice, gotten her a flea collar, and combed her with a firmanator comb.  I did that outside and combed out a lot of live fleas and eggs but I think that actually made her worse.  I feel bad but I’m running out of ways to help her.

Good morning Willow,

 

There are many reasons Fire and EMS send multiple units to a medical call. Sadly the most common reason is they're under staffed and need two units sent just so they have four responders there. Even in the case of a fully staffed agency, we like to see two units dispatched because if it requires CPR, the person doing compressions should only be in that position for no more than two minutes to remain effective. Another reason is for lifting and carrying a person of size.

 

Hugs,

@Mmindy Sounds like your vacation was nicer than mine. cleaning out a house of your dead brother in law to be sold isn't really fun.

 

@WillowBeing awaken by sirens isn't fun. when I was way younger I was afraid of sirens. Would hide in between the screen and main door. Until one time the screen door wouldn't open. I found out what was making the sounds. I still can see the scar.

 

Back to the grind today. At least I get to drive around.

 

Coffee is nice and hot. tastes so good.

 

Hugs, to all.

Years ago, when we were living in town, we were woke up by the fire trucks in front of the house.  The house across the street was on fire.

It seems some guys were in there huffing gasoline (of all things) and one of the idiots decided to light a cigarette.  Actually a true story.  Stupidity knows no bounds.

When I was on the fire department, they would get called out for anything potentially life-threatening.  The fire department could be here in 5 minutes; the ambulance would take 20.  They would also get called out for non-life-threatening calls if the ambulance would be delayed.  Mostly it was the medical first responders on the fire department that were called out, but for CPR, it was every available person.  If you do a full 2-minute shift of effective CPR, you need a 10 or 15 minute break to recover.

So true Kathy, we're lucky to have three of the LUCAS CPR Machines. One on each of our three city ambulances. They're expensive, but they free up personnel, and space around the victim.

Kymmie,

 

I've been following your posts on the trip to MI and cleaning out your brother-in-laws house. You're correct, it's not fun. However it can be rewarding, and humbling as you move through the process.

 

Hugs,

@Mmindy My youngest did expand his collection of video game consoles, with some old school ones. Plus my brother in law had a few things would be collectable. In addition to the house we also inherited property in upper lower Michigan. My wife actually found her mothers ashes, she had been told they were used for fertilizer. So she has all but her youngest brothers ashes.

Good morning, everyone! I’m two cups of coffee into the day, dogs are walked and fed and I’ve caught up on the news of the day.

 

I won’t jinx things now - will provide the details later - but this week has held some wonderful things for me already and today, hopefully, a major advance in my journey. I am excited, scared, hopeful and full of anticipation. 

 

Send good old vibes my way, that it all works out as I hope it does!

Good morning

 

Just wanted to say hi, then I have to get going. We have to be in Charleston.

 

Fire and EMS showed up again yesterday.  Two firefighters got out of a Squad truck. They were here quite a while before EMS arrived.  Obviously from a different area, they followed GPS whereas squad new the shortest route.  
 

finishing my coffee then I’ll get moving.

I had an early morning appointment for a CT scan.  No food, no coffee.  😵  Scan done, I had my coffee at Tim Horton's.  Then, instead of my planned errands, I high-tailed it back home because the snow was starting to build up.  I made it up the hill, but the car definitely wasn't moving in a straight line!  Errands can wait.

April, I always hope to send you good vibes, and things will go your way.

 

Good morning everyone,

I'm on my second mug of coffee,:coffee: after having the pleasure of sleeping in. I'll be dragging the camper home from storage today, so my wife can update and add to the decorations in it. We bought it last November, pulled it off the lot, and parked it in storage. Our maiden voyage with it is in three weeks.

 

Hugs,

Thanks, Mindy.  I have a pretty good idea what the scan will say: lungs are about as healed as they are going to get; capacity is about 75% of what it used to be.  At least, that is what I am expecting.

No snow here.  It was upper 70's yesterday, but will be cooler today.  Y'all yankees - and beyond - can enjoy your snow.

 

I went to a local Pride group last night.  I'd been there once before awhile back.  It was okay.  The people were nice enough.  The thing is there are no older people.  Everyone else was like 30 yrs younger than me.  They all have their own thing going on.

 I still feel pretty much alone around here.

      It's kind of like the very slow recovery after a devastating hurricane (which mercifully I've not lived through). Rainbows do tend to appear post-storm.    About the Don't Say Gay settlement. Teachers are now allowed to talk about LGBTQIA+ stuff & to be LGBTQIA+, as long as it's not part of the curriculum. So still no formalized education allowed.    The overall impression on the culture of Florida and its influence on US and world culture has had its effect. I do consider myself an optimist and a realist, and do not mean to seem pessimistic. It is good that DeSantis has cooled his jets to whatever extent he has. But the collateral damage here (and by extension elsewhere) is palpable. Yes, people rejoice - we can gather once more and celebrate pride. But it seems to require more guts than just a few years ago bc so many h8ers have been enabled and empowered by policies and demonizing rhetoric over the last few years.    The wonderful thing about hurricane recovery, returning to that comparison, is that it often brings out the very best virtues in people such as compassion, kindness, generosity, and a deeper sense of fellowship and goodwill.

      Seems like they caught him pumping gasoline onto a political fire for sure.  I do think that for the time being he has been cooled down a bit.

      I am not completely sure what you mean here.  To be "held responsible" means that they have been investigated and brought to justice by any number of legal and financial means.  That would be a good thing, and has been done recently in a case for slander and libel where the organization agreed to pay its victims many millions of dollars.  In that case the victims were NOT Trans, but the platform was "held responsible". If you mean simply "found to be responsible" by evidence obtained from various credible sources, then of course there are options for the victims to pursue to "hold them responsible" in monetary or terms of personal freedom of the officers.  There are many such organizations that do foster hatred of our community and we have taken different forms of action which includes exposing their hatred and intentions to other public media.  It is not a "what if" the groups do this, it is done regularly.  As long as they are deemed to be private and not government supported, the best we can do is avoid such places.  If the site is Government Supported, then there is a chain of legal events that one or many legal organizations that support the Trans Community can bring actions to have corrected via the Courts or other agencies as dictated by law.

      Florida’s LGBTQ+ residents relieved after easing of DeSantis’s anti-gay laws Past 12 months show evidence of radical change in political climate, starting with judge again allowing children at drag shows. Leaders of Florida’s much-embattled LGBTQ+ communities say the worst of Governor Ron DeSantis’s three-year onslaught against them may be over, with the official start of Pride month celebrations only days away. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/article/2024/may/27/florida-lgbt-law-ron-desantis

      I have four purses. A Coach purse being the only big-name brand but it's not in great shape. I might get another Coach purse because I like their design.

      Happy Memorial day. As a veteran of the armed forces. I know the sacrifice that has been given by others like me. Each and every service member signs the check up to and including my life, payable to the Untied States of America. Some have had this check cashed, either in battle or because of it. Today we honor those men and woman.   It is sad that some people just think it is a extra day off to raise hell and get drunk.   Today I honor my father and brother in law, two uncles, and all of those I have met while in uniform, who have passed.     Hugs to all.   Kymmie

      I always hated wearing hats but am finding some new love for them now, especially with longer hair to try to control.
    • Ivy
      Hats can be fun.  A nice sun hat with a wide brim.  You gotta watch out in the wind though.

      Goodness, that could never happen.  Maybe you're just being a little paranoid?

      The tornados made our news here. Death toll 18 so far? Yikes. It seems like the USA is infamous for them, unfortunately. Stay safe, y'all.   Public holidays to revere our veterans and war dead are sacred. Our equivalent is ANZAC Day on April 25th each year. To those who served, THANK YOU.

      Good morning everyone,   Yes, @awkward-yet-sweet it was very strong weather day down South and in the Midwest. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they recover. It’s also good to hear that you and yours are doing well too.    My day started early as Parker needed to go outside to do his business and potty. Since it was dawn and flag etiquette requires all USA 🇺🇸 flags to be flown at half staff from sunrise until noon in honor of our fallen veterans, I took care of my flag. I fly it 24/7 on a lighted pole following the www.starsandstripesdaily.org guidance.    Later today we will be gathering at our son’s house for a cookout. Other family members will be bringing their dogs to be introduced and socializing with Parker.    Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
