    Good to know that any horses there won't have to go barefoot, Peg! But it's not so good if you lost tomato plants.

    Busy around here too with the usual--paying bills, doing laundry, making up a grocery list, changing bed linens, and probably a few phone calls about 3 problems the wheelchair developed over the weekend.

    It's May, and probably there won't be any more snow for a while, and it might not even get too hot for a while. You have to love spring and fall.

    Thumbs up

    Hi Peg and Agate. Another month is upon us. I'm just getting up...well waking up, I'm still in bed. I love laptops.

    I'm just waiting to get paid. That's at the top of the news from here.

    I had a long visit from Seven last night. I hardly see her these days, but she came back here and let me lift her up on the bed, and we had a big love session. We both really enjoyed it.

    And right now, both want me to get out of bed, and get them their turkey. And since their word is my command, I must go.

    Have a great day, and month everyone.

    Sorry to hear about the tomato plants.

    I have taken up container gardening on the porch, which I can do standing or sitting. They all look great so far, especially the herbs.

    As an experiment, I germinated seeds from an old cherry tomato, and from a fresh bell pepper. They look good so far. I am trying the beans from inside my green beans from yesterday.

    I had to do more paperwork and phoning to close my business. It's a good reminder of why I can't work. The miniscule amount of thinking and organization necessary was more than the brain could manage.

    Cool

    I did call CVS, and dropped the Lyrica. Unless I start hurting terribly, I will wait until my next appointment to try something else. I'm also getting my Tramadol and other meds Wednesday. Today has been the best pain day in quite a while.

    I just ate, and have my flavored oatmeal and English wheat muffins to eat tomorrow. I just might make it to payday after all! I owe nothing, and that's exactly how much I have.

    Howie, so glad you are trying to hold off on the Lyrica and get another drug. I think it is a wise move.

    Thanks Peg for getting us started. Sorry about your tomato plants. If I had to take a choice I would rather have ruined tomato plants than 8inches of snow for Mayday. You are a busy bee as usual.

    Agate, you are busy too. Doing housekeeping and all kinds of things. Sorry about the wheelchair problems. Hope they can be easily fixed.

    BBS, my deck is so hot I cannot try container planting, but I probably would not anyway. Just thinking of getting containers and then refilling with dirt later and trying to find a place to keep everything. Well, actually the just thinking is wearing me out right now.

    I went to get hair color and cut today. Stopped by drive thru at bank and then went to drug store. For some reason I was totally wiped out tonight. The air was heavy all day and the dew point very high. It rained tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be better weather wise. I hope so, my legs were like lead.

    Virginia, I believe the climate where you are must be like Washington, DC, and Maryland and Georgia? (Those are the states I've been in in that area.) The heat of the warmer months is so oppressive, what with the humidity, that I don't know how people stand living there. I believe I'd spend every minute of the summer months right in front of an air conditioner. And the summers are long.

    You've probably developed ways of coping with that heat or avoiding it--?

    Yes, high humidity wipes me out, too. Even in cooler weather. The southern humidity and heat were two reasons why we left the south and moved back to Wisconsin. It does get humid here...but only for a few days at a time, then drier weather moves in. Off to the hospital this morning for a catheter change (takes about 20 minutes)...then maybe I can talk TC into a lunch out...

    I grew up in Kentucky, where the humidity reaches extremes at times. I can tolerate it better than many Northerners but it still wipes me out in the middle of summer. Thank goodness for air conditioning!
