Miss Dr Robin!  :shakefinger  You shoulda gone to the docter for hexrays!!!  No more hi heelings eether!!  :shakefinger   

Miss Loosy, our dekk is that fake wood kind, and it is holding up really well, essept that it's settled weerd and some spots are kinda wavey or sinky.  Momma was gonna have the company fix it up, but she was SHOKKED to learn that they had that dekk put in 18 years ago!!!  And they don't even make that kinda fake wood anymore!!  And they'd hafta replace the whole dekk to really fix it!!  :yikes  She just decided to live with it!  ;)

Well, all I can say about our building inspection this morning is, you tax dollars might as well be thrown down the cistern, you'd get as much return on them. Either maintain it like you should, or sell it off. GRRRRR

Poor Miss Robin, took out by Dudley the hunting dog. I hope you feel better soon.  :kiss2

I'm afraid for Miss Caroline too. :hope

Miss Chris, owr deck is 20 years old and is just pain wood, so we got good service from it, butt its days are numbered. :eek  Ma and Auntie Ann are looking at using that fake wood stuff this time.

Miss Noo Carol, how frustrating!  My paws are crossed for this afternoon.

Ma's had a KNOT fun day.  The mower would knot start today.  She cleaned the carburetor filter (after taking off another screen thing that she shouldn't have taken off. :rotfl ) and replaced the spark plug and it still won't start.  She called the people who usually service it for her and they are coming to get it tomorrow.  Not real sure when it will get fixed and brought back. Then she set about finding someone else to mow for her for the next few weeks.  She talked to a nice fellow who is coming tomorrow and might be a resource for other yard stuff. :goodluck  She's tired and sweaty and dirty and frustrated and didn't even mow the grass yet. :lol:

Nate, cool as a pukumber in the house

I survived! I feel pretty beat up but it went according to plan. I took some drugs but I think I’m going to feel this one. Thanks for the backandforth!

And now Robin is injured! I hope you’re kicking your shoes off under your desk.

Poor Carol with a tree STILL on your house! Was it yesterday you had Dairy Queen? I think should be a delivery of pizza pie in your future.

And I am still worried that we haven’t heard from Caroline.

Vanessa, I’m confused about your inspection. Of the building where you live? Then why did you have to go downtown?

Good job with the attempt at mower fixing Lucy! I think you deserve pizza too!

Pizza for everyone! Except me because I can only have soft foods for a while. :(

Workplace--every year, all the facilities used by Customs are inspected by someone from their field office. For the Port of Charleston, that guy comes from Atlanta and goes around to with the collateral duty safety officers & mission support to hopefully kick start much needed repairs and maintenance. The fly in the ointment is that Customs does NOT own the Customhouse, that's GSA and they stink. Their excuse is always "MONEY". They turn the building's a/c off at night and on the weekends--and an historic building full of plaster and stone needs a/c or it sweats and moulders and the plaster falls off the ceiling. Those are the biggest things.

Yesterday, the pool cleaner was here.  The lawn mower was here.  The hedge trimmers came and also took down two pine trees (good riddance).  I said, "We should sell the house right this minute.  The outside will never look this good again."  I completely forgot that we have had a tarp on the roof for a month now. :rofl   New Carol, we've all been waiting for the adjuster - for A. Month. Now. :bugeye

 Miss Chris, ocean breezes sound wonderful!  

Miss Lucy, I hope your lawn mower gets fixed quickly and/or you find someone to mow for you.  Everyone is having problems this week.

Miss Jerilyn, I'm glad your screw removal went okay and that the drugs are kicking in.  Yes indeed it was yesterday for DQ.  Today I had a Filet-o-Fish at MickeyD's.  

I agree that everyone deserves pizza!!

Hope Miss Caroline is okay.

THE TREE PEOPLE WERE HERE!! 

The good news is that nothing was damaged during the removal except a little dent on the edge of the gutter.  That was a tremendous amount of lumber!!  It was interesting to watch how they got the big pieces off the roof with ropes.  Those guys earn every penny that they charge.  There are two little holes in the ridge, not much damage to the riddgepole.  The bad news is that the mother tree is terminal.  There is a deep crack on one side and the center is hollow.  The arborist says she could split in two at the base almost any time.  I hate to lose the shade at the front of the house but this poor tree is suffering.  The power company has hacked it up on that side beyond hope.  Squirrels and birdies will have to find another home soon.   

Now -- in the 'What chutzpah!' and 'What are you, meshuggah?' department, lady from the claims contractor called just now.  She told me that they have completed my claim and will be sending a Customer Sat form for me to fill out and return.  They will hold my claim hostage until they receive said form from me, at which time the claim will be released.  :rofl:angryfire  This would be funny if it weren't so infuriating!!  What will they do when I don't give them a good review?  Will they sabotage my claim?  

Miss Elizabeth, that is way too long to wait for an adjuster.  I hope someone comes soon to look at your roof.  What is it with these people anyway?

:yay The tree is off the roof! :yay 

Jim had his first plasmaphoresis treatment this morning.  They were about 90% done when his blood pressure dropped to 70/50.  I turned our his calcium was depleted so they gave him calcium IV.   The BP came back to normal.  They stopped at that point but he got some benefit from this first one.  He was very talkative this morning,  looking at pictures on my phone, asking about Cherry and Ivy.  He was also reading the Washington Post that I brought from home.  By afternoon he started getting extremely tired and started being confused- he asked me when our ship is leaving the port.   So the nurse gave him some medication to help him sleep and I hope he has a quiet night and we will see what tomorrow brings!  He gets his next treatment on Thursday.

Just a quick checkin before I lose connectivity. The hay is cut and in. The tree is off the roof. Dr Frootkake really should have that ankle checked. Misser Jim is making progress and Kathy is breathing a titch easier. No spiders!!!  Please!! Holding the claim payment for the satisfaction survey is outrageous.

Very hot here today. We move about 40 miles eastward on the southern edge of the park for the Glacier-Waterton Hamfest on Friday. After three days there we head to Many Glacier and get to be rich folks for five days. We had reservations at the little old cabins at Swift Current (end of the road at the Many Glacier area and beginning of an awesome number of incdible trails). Whilst on the road we got one of the "not enuf staff we're cancelling your reservation and will try to put you in an alternative spot--how about single bed, and cold water with no bathroom"?  After working with a delightful young gal and playing the new knee needs its own space and DH kicks and snores and takes his half out of the middle cards and being polite and patient ...... we got word she could switch us to the Many Glacier Hotel!!  Just a mile down the road and one of the old time fancy in its day railroad built lodges. For the same price we would have paid for the SC cabin!  Other folks will be paying at least $100 more/night for identical accommodations. 🥳. Wheeeee

Stay safe everyone.

 I just watched the moon set behind Lake Mortgage Payment.  It's already 79 degrees out.  I keep trying to get up early enough so that I can get out to walk or run (depending on my dodgy hip) at the coolest part of the ay.

:coffee  gone

 

:modstop   I have Caroline news…. I found and messaged her friend Lisa on FB.  Lisa responded late last night but I didn’t get it until this morning.
She did not say exactly what happened to Caroline, but she is OK and is still in hospital, and will be there for another day, until they figure out her rehab.  I asked if she had broken her hip, but have not heard back yet.  Bitzi is staying with Lisa and is just fine.   I will forward details as I get them. 
EDITED… Caroline has a fractured pelvis and may have to go to rehab for a while. Lisa is looking after her house and said maybe we could send cards to Caroline and she’ll take them to her.  She sent me the address…not sure if it’s on our annual list.  PM if you need it.


:yay :yay :yay  The tree is gone

 

:pinkele    Patsy …..livin’ the high life 

The news on Jim sounds quite encouraging :goodluck

Awwww Nuttymeg…sorry about your car….

I’m off for a paddle with my friend.  We’ll stop at the marvellous chip truck with the best sweet potato fries on the  way home from the lake.  Today is Rockets French Fry Day    :chow

Jerilyn, I'm so glad the screw removal went well. :grouphug  I hope the recovery won't be too miserable.

We're worrying about Miss Caroline too and keeping her in owr prayers.

image.jpeg.0296ca8cfc541f36b9d7790c0f69c626.jpeg  This is the historic building in which Miss Banessa werks.  It was completed in 1879.  It's been frew earthquakes and hurricanes, plus the general heat and humidity ob many a Charleston summer.  Historic buildings are a labor ob lub and it sounds like this one is knot feeling the love from the GSA.

Miss Noo Carol, I'm so glad the limb is offa your roof now butt I'm sad wif you that the poor tree is knot gonna survive. :kiss2  That insurance company sure has a lotta nerve, holding your claim hostage for any reason at all. :angryfire

Miss Kathy, that sounds like pretty encouraging results from the plasma-what-cha-ma-callit treatment!

Miss Patsy, the Glacier trip sounds like it's gonna be a winner this year. :kiss2 Congrats on scoring the fancy schmancy hotel! :confetti Hab fun. :kiss2 

Ma sent Miss Caroline a text message, in case she has her phone. Letting her know that we're all worrying about her and backanddforthing for her.  Ma will share if Miss Caroline is able to respond. Ah ha!  Mam did eben better!  I do fink Miss Caroline's address is in the listing.  Mam, thank you so much for the news.
Nurses will tell us, but Ma thinks that broken pelvis is painful butt knot as difficult to recover from as broken hip.  I sure hope so.

Miss RE Carol, that's what Ma says in those occasions too.  'Cuz what else are you gonna do? :kiss2

Oh my goodness, pain and discomfort EVERYWHERE; peeps, houndies, jaws, trees ... Please everyone, take all of our :grouphug and :kiss2 and :chocolate and get better.

My Luna Gimme Pig is at the vet because she has an ouchie on her rear end that is being investigated and will need treatment. Of course we leave for a 10-day trip to Scotland on Sunday. If her treatment is complicated, I will board her at the vets's whilst we're gone to give my petsitter a break. Butt I am worried for my wee little old girlie :(
