Ahh, I didn't realize the cat was in same car.  I'll have to play closer attention next time I see it on tv.  Too cute!😺

 

When seeing all of you rave about the Subaru's commercials with dogs and a cat, I got curious (curiosity killed the cat?😉) and googled it.

 

Good one 👍 and the Outback, or was it Forester?, look like cool cars 😁

Drove up to Lake Erie today.  Nice lunch, then walking the peninsula. 
 

Lighthouse at waterworks

Air temperature was 83° at the beach.

I think there were more people on the beach than were on the beach when we were in Ft. Lauderdale last month. No one in the water here though. Water temperature was 39°.  Wet suit weather.

Graham, curious and admittedly have not been keeping up with current news regarding Prince Phillip, are Harry and Meghan attending funeral and how will they be (or expected to be) received?

It is highly unlikely Meghan will fly to the UK because she is pregnant and has a young child.

Harry will have to isolate for 5 days and get a negative covid19 test after arriving in the UK.

The funeral is 3pm on Saturday 17th April so he will need to be here in the next 24-36 hours.

I think the British public will welcome Harry but relations might be a bit tense with some members of the Royal Family.

The funeral will be televised but will be a private funeral with only 30 family there.

I didnt think she would want to fly internationally during the pandemic and being pregnant.   Very sad for everyone, sounds like Prince Philip will have the type of funeral he wanted instead of a big gathering.

Beautiful set up.  Installation of Unilock pavers begins next week on ours. Will be done in 2 weeks (so the contractor says LOL).  May I ask the make of your dining set & pool loungers?  I’m having trouble finding ones that match (and don’t have cushions).  

Check out wayfair.com  I just bought a patio/dining set that looks very similar to their set. I ordered online.  Supposed to arrive by end of next week.  

Only thing is we will have to assemble it.  I'm sure instructions will be another language.

Pretty good week here.. I got my first shot Thursday (finally) and we finally received our stimulus check today. Had repairs done to our 2004 ford escape and 2010 ford fusion so most of stimulus will pay that off.  Our new puppy is finally house broken if only we can control her biting.

I didn't remove a cover, or vacuum, no chlorine added, no pump to turn on, and it will be some time before the heater does anything at all...20200112_170048.thumb.jpg.b12de6ecdddb48f08453eee77bea239c.jpg

 

When I was a little girl, my grandfather (who owned a bungalow near the ocean in Queens, NYC - yes that is technically the western part of Long Island) .... told me he turned the ocean on with a faucet each year.  

 

He is long gone, Ocean Boy, but he might still be helping you (and a lot of other people) out.

We did have a Subaru for a weekend when we went to the Pebble Beach Concours.  It didn’t blend with the other cars in the parking lots, but I had no issues parking it anywhere. It was safe from theft and could hop a curb with no issues at all. Thrifty on gas too.

The rest of these cars were in the parking lot with us at one of the golf courses. They were just daily drivers, LOL. Probably just this one weekend if the year.  😉😆

     I have been reading this thread since Dani started it so many months ago. I have responded with emojis if I liked/agreed with someone’s posting,but I want to,

respond to mets07 post about Breezy Point.  

     Being a Queens kid myself, I had friends who spent a good amount of the summer at Breezy Point beginning n the 1960s. Do you happen to know a family with the last name,Reilly?

      The son and daughter’s names are Billy and Patti. 

       This might be a small world story .

I feel bad for the cat not knowing what it was getting into. Hope it didn't get sick or a hangover.

Agreed. Horrible people. 🤬

 

@Mets FanHappy Belated Birthday

@A&L_OntHappy Belated Birthday to your Mom. Looks like y’all had a great time. Owen is definitely getting taller.

@LionesssI do the same thing. I just let M8ke take care of it. 😁

@grapau27Sorry to hear about Prince Phillip. ThemQueen must be devastated.


I was 14 pages behind and still trying to get caught up, but I’m working on it. Not in CC jail, 🤣 but I just haven’t been on as much lately.
 

Congrats to the new car owners. I think it was George in Dallas that was wanting a mid sized suv. I absolutely loved my Toyota 4Runner, but that was 20 years ago so I don’t know what they are like now. I was wanting to look at them, but they didn’t tow enough so I ended up with the Denali. I would have seriously looked at them otherwise.

Hopefully, Mike's surgery went well and you're celebrating you birthday in style 💐

 

Happy Birthday, Renee 🌷

Thanks. The dr called and said it went well, but there was one small thing ( I think) that apparently the anesthesia can cause, but it’s not that big of a deal. Sometimes the anesthesia will cause a person to not be able to pee. He was in recovery longer because they kept having him drink water/juice. Still didn’t work so they put in a catheter. That fixed it, but since it’s the weekend he has it in till Monday when he goes back. He is absolutely not a happy camper. 
 

Normally we always stay at the hospital when one of us has surgery. Since they did away with the comfy waiting room for the surgery floor due to covid I decided to head back home. Thank goodness I did. I left the hospital at about 8:00am and didn’t pick him up until about 9:30pm. 😳  I do want to talk to the dr to get more info. Mike was supposed to be his second surgery and be done about 12:30 with a couple of hours recovery time. He didn’t get out until about 2:30. If the dr took another patient ahead of him that’s fine, but if he was still the second patient I want to know why he was in surgery that long. Makes me wonder if things really went fine or if they just turned out fine in the end. Maybe the first patient took longer? 🤷🏼‍♀️ 
 

My birthday was spent in bed most of the day with Mike. I have been catering to him since he has been in bed all day and only gotten up for the bathroom. Truth is he really hasn’t needed or wanted much, but I’m here the second he wants something. This is the only time he lets me attend to him like this is when he’s really sick or hurting which is rare. I wouldn’t have it any other way for my birthday. I’m just glad he is ok. We can always celebrate my birthday another day.

There's a similar show about private airplanes being repossessed.  They need to find the plane, make sure that it can safely fly, and then take off from wherever the plane is...without anyone noticing.  It's one thing to back a tow truck up to a car and drive away.  It's a completely different thing to jump in a plane you've never seen before and fly away. 

I used to watch it. One of the repo guys lived in Central Florida. Those were some crazy repos. I remember one guy they kept tracking around the world, but he was always one step ahead of them. They finally caught up to him and got the plane.

I loved my catheter! When I had my second hip replaced, after waking me up multiple times all night, they came in about 4AM and wanted to remove it. I told the nurse to go away, and that I wanted to sleep, and they could remove it when it was actually morning! :classic_rolleyes::classic_biggrin::classic_biggrin:

If I had my way, I’d fill it in but my wife likes it so I’m stuck with maintaining it. In 20 years I’ve been in less than a dozen times. 
 

id take your “pool” any day of the week. 

We also didn’t use our pool in the first 15 or so years. That changed when I discovered sitting in the pool with a drink in hand is very relaxing. 🥂

Sending you both our very best wishes and hopefully Mike recovers quickly.

Maybe they wanted to do keyhole surgery and decided to do conventual surgery instead and needed a general anaesthetic.

My Late dad had 2 inguinal hernia operations with mesh put in.

Take care.

Graham & Pauline.

Prince Philip's death is prominently reported here, especially since he visited his mother' grave in Israel and planted a tree in her memory in the "Righteous Among the Nations" Garden.

 

Middle page in the most popular newspaper. May he RIP.

We had a lovely church service this morning and the organist played our National Anthem in memory of Prince Philip.

Afterwards we took some goodies through for our Sarah and stopped now to look at Azura docked at Newcastle.

It was bright sunshine 2 minutes ago and now it is snowing.

There's an Israeli cafe/store here in Dallas that sells the Jerusalem Post and the Yediot. Best felafel outside of Tel Aviv.

I hate the guilt stories when people ask you to switch from your aisle seat on a plane.  I've had a young couple that said they were just married and on their way to their honeymoon.  Would I switch so that they can sit together?  Also had a mother and young daughter who were not seated together and asked me to switch.  Both times I ended up in a middle seat.

 

A good seat switching story.  I was already seated at the window in 1A (first class bump) and another guy was already on the aisle in 1B.  We were comfortably seated with a drink while the rest of the plane boarded.  People were stopped in the aisle waiting for space to open up further back.  There was a young soldier, wearing fatigues, who was standing right next to us.  The guy in 1B asked the soldier what seat he was in.  The soldier replied and the 1B guy said "let's switch seats to thank you for your service".  I talked to the soldier a bit and he had never flown first class before.  Really nice gesture.
