  1. Hello Randy and friends. Like you, I have been away from "home" for quite some time now. I think many of my surface scars have healed but the deep wounds from losing my sweet Dennis will always cause me pain. I promise to be back and do my part to make this journey for others a little easier. Thanks to Katie for this beautiful site.

    Friday's Air

    Even though I'm still among the ranks of the unemployed, I am thrilled to see this Friday come to an end. I guess after a life time of working, that Friday feeling is just embedded in my soul....lol!!! It has been so hot here today and I have been in a lazy, do nothing mood all afternoon. I got quite a bit accomplished this morning but that energetic mood ended about 1:00, when I finally gave in and took a nap. I hate filing mail and paperwork, so I had let a stack accumulate on the end of my counter. I am proud to say that the stack is gone and everything has either been tossed or filed.
  3. Hope everyone had a great Wednesday. When I was working, I used to be very relieved when Wednesday was over since that meant the work week was over half way over. Now, Wednesday is just another day of the week. I really do miss working and I'm beating the pavement trying to find a new job. In addition to looking for a job, I've been trying to use time off to get lots of things caught up around the house. Unfortunately, the motivation for housework just hasn't been happening...lol. We've been having some really nice weather here in Florida this week. The temperature and the humidity l
  4. Wow...what a great day to just kick back and catch up on some well needed rest. There are at least a million things I need to be doing but, for today, I am going to listen to what this old body is telling me to do and rest. I'm going to run out to the grocery store in an hour or so and stop by to get all my Convention pictures printed. Everything I have in the house to make a meal of is frozen, so I guess the trip to the store is inevitable. Hope everyone is having a nice, laid back Sunday afternoon. If it wasn't for sports on television, I probably wouldn't know what day of the week i
  5. Hello, friends. I finally got home last night after spending 9 days in Indianapolis as a Florida delegate for the American Legion Convention. We had a great week, sharing information about all the great things the American Legion Auxiliary does for our veterans, their families and our communities. I absolutely fell in love with downtown Indy. The Florida delegation stayed at the Downtown Hilton and what a beautiful view of the city we had from our room. I loved the way that this city has merged the newer buildings with the older ones and has managed to keep the older atmosphere. The dow
  6. Good morning everyone. I'm very happy that today is Thursday, as that puts me one day closer to my favorite day of the week!!! Lots of playing catch-up here at work today. I hate having a lot of loose ends to catch up but I love it when they're all done and my desk is clear. I'm finally going after work for a long over due hair cut and color. The gal that does my hair had to let a girl go, so her work load has doubled up. She's a long distance runner and she hates working late, as she hits the pavement running. I have to make appointments for either after work or Saturdays and my Satur
  7. Make a 5 word sentence, using the previous posters last word to start your post. ie: Food is always in Fashion Fashion can sometimes be Ugly Ugly Llamas don't have Friends etc etc So...away we go.... I always like fried food.
  8. Sue, you're banana muffins are making me really hungry!!! I could go for a really warm muffin and a fresh cup of coffee right now. I think that would wake me up and help me get through the rest of the day. We've had a couple of unexpected bursts or rain here this morning. They both just seemed to come from nowhere and didn't last long. It's still very overcast and one look out the window makes you think that it must be about 7:30 with darkness approaching. In addition to needing that coffee and muffin to stay awake...the weather isn't helping anything. I would love to go home, turn down the

    Monday's Air

    Good Monday morning, everyone. Those are really unusual words, especially coming out of my mouth....lol. Everyone knows how badly I hate Mondays but I'm trying to make the best of today. I just saw a cute little saying on FB.....Mondays are like garbage trucks....you know they're coming but they stink anyway!!! I hope everyone will jump in and participate in the word games that I have started....again. I know we all have a lot on our minds and Lord knows there has been more than enough sadness here lately but we need to carry on in an effort to those that have been loyal forum followers, a
  10. In this game someone starts off with two words, the next person has to use the last word, in creating their two word combination. Here are some examples... green pea next poster > pea soup next poster > soup spoon next poster > spoon handle next poster > handle well next poster > well okay next poster > okay fine next poster > fine china etc OK...the first two words are BUS STOP

    Friday's Air

    Since today is my very favorite day of the entire week, I thought I would drop in and chat with friends here at LCSC. I hope everyone is managing to stay cool, wherever you are. I have been talking to some of our friends that spend winters here in Florida and spend the summer months at their homes in the north. It seems that they are all wising they had stayed here, as out temperatures, although sweltering, are still cooler than they are experiencing in their northern homes. I know this happens, but it's just almost unbelievable. I know that a lot of our older Florida homes aren't equipped
  12. Just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a Happy Friday. Thank goodness that I'll be leaving work a bit early today to drive to my weekend Boot Camp in Orlando. I just have to stop by the house and pick up my suitcase and my cooler. Yes...I'm taking my cooler with water, soda and plenty of snacks, as food is outrageously priced in Orlando. They seem to think that everyone there is vacationing at Disney with a huge pocketful of $$$. Not me...it's junk food for me all weekend. Not healthy...but affordable!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend. PS....loved reading your post, Lily. Now, I'
  13. Well, the rain has finally stopped here in Florida after our little tropical storm finally passed through. It has been raining since Friday and we're pretty soaked. My grassed was mowed last Thursday and you wouldn't believe how tall it was this morning. Thank goodness for riding lawn mowers during this time of year. So, I guess we wait and see what the rest of our hurricane system has to offer. Hopefully, it's nice and calm here for the rest of the season. Life is much the same for me...work at work...work at home and my volunteer work. It's hard for me to imagine what it would be like
