I've been having problems with my hearing so I went to the VA to have it checked.  This is what they observed:

Problem fixed, everything is working today. Linda - Marv gets home from Florida today. He should see your question then.

Dave - My hearing isn't a problem, but my attention span is going downhill. I know I'm not as sharp as I used to be, but I don't get the StarTrek joke. What am I missing? Or, is that the point?

It has been almost 3 weeks since my second COVID shot (Pfizer). All is well. 

On Saturday, I was in charge of watching my granddaughter who calls herself the "Maze Master." So I brought out a giant sheet of paper and markers and we had a blast. My friend Jan and niece Katy played along. This is the result. I forgot to mention our panda friend, Glasses. He's always getting in on the action.

Dave, now I get it. But Marv and Max had to explain it to me. LOL In case you didn't know, these are a few people who share your birthday: Jack Nicholson is 84, John Waters is 75, Peter Frampton is 71, and Rapper Machine Gun Kelly is 31.

i didn't lose anything from the big freeze but had to cut my pomegranates back to the ground.  8 foot tall are now already 1 foot tall.

best of covid:  everybody bringing items to the car.  even the library brings out books.  

worst of covid: not being able to travel.  had moderna mid jan and mid feb.  i'm so paranoid i got an antibody test three weeks later  to be 100% sure i had antibodies (i do.) i did get sick the day after the second one.  had 103.4 temp. lethargic the second day and fine the third.

Julie, you are amazing. So glad Marv took the time to have "breakfast" with you. Tell us about the tats on your fingers. I'm fascinated. Wouldn't it be fun if other Raider64 folks who have tats would share them and tell the stories behind them? I confess, I have none.

Julie:

So glad to hear that you are ok.  I had Moderna too.  Everything here is ok.  If you ever expect another cold spell, just pack up and come stay at my house!  You are always welcome!

Love ya, Linda

So..........thank God for small favors!  Yesterday we were thrilled to receive some rain in our desert!  It was only .17 of an inch.  But, it was rain!

I hope some of these small favors come your way too!

Love to all, Linda

linda - since like you we're not in the dreaded texas elec. grid i didn't have any trouble and you do know you're 14 hrs away from me smiley  about the same as driving to bloomington!   i do wish i'd thought to look you up when my son got married in el paso (actually chaparral.)

mel - tats - got my first in 1975.  owl, flower, rainbow inside right arm.      peace/flowers outside right arm.      all fingers/thumbs.     date total eclipse (8-21-17) , moroccan design i liked, om symbol inside left arm.    lotus flower face.  flower inside right ear.   flowers on both ear lobes (where earrings would go.)  never regretted any of them. surely i'm not the only raider with tats???????

Julie:

Hi!  Actually it takes me 19 hours to drive to Bloomington.  However, since my knee replacement, it is difficult for me to sit still, comfortably, in  a car for more than one hour.  I no  longer drive out of town.  I have difficulty sitting still to fly also.  But, flying is faster.  I have to use a wheelchair at the airport to get to and from the gates.  Otherwise, I'm getting around well.  I am still working and I'm happy about that.  It is so good for me to get up and go to work and make my brain work.   I find that I am happiest while I am busy. 

You're always welcome at my house!

Love ya, Linda

Julie...  I'm sure there are others in the class with tatts.  They just have to speak up.  I have only 1 above my left ankle.  Been there for about 35 years.  It is an Orca whale's tail. Have been thinking about covering it up with a Kokopelli if that is possible.  May talk to a tattoo artist one of these days.

Sue:

Happy Birthday!

Love ya, Linda

 

 

Max:  Kokopeli is a big deal here and into the Mimbres area of the Rio Grande!  You surprised me with mentioning him.

Love ya, Linda

A CALL FOR BIRTHDAY VOLUNTEERS!!!

Hey everyone, I've been doing the birthday announcements for just over a year and have no problem continuing except for one thing: Tomorrow I begin a series of major dental surgeries that could take several weeks or more to complete. I'm hoping someone might volunteer to take over for awhile. Following in Suzi's wonderful and caring footsteps was challenging, but it has actually been fun to watch as we all reach 75.

I'm doing my last birthday post today, a few days in advance, which makes May 10 the next one. If anyone is interested in taking over, please give us a head's up. If not, maybe everyone will take notice of the birthday list on the Home Page and post your individual greetings to celebrate as those dates arrive.

Many thanks and many hugs to all of you.

Mel

Rich:  Happy Birthday!

Love ya, Linda

 

Mel:  Good luck with the oral surgeries.  Heads up!  If you come out with swollen lips we will all know that you had your lips botoxed!  Ha ha!

Love ya, Linda
