    Cool

    Yeeeeee Haw! It sounds like a real hoedown! If you have any food left over, just give it to Sam (the cat) and tell her to get straight home with it!

    I thought I would stay up and watch Sea Hunt tonight. So Sam (the Skin diving cat) and I, are going to watch the back to back episodes coming on. Glub, glub!

    I was just noticing all the "views" on all threads-- it's a lot! And then noticed that now, one member is on line, and 34 guests. I hadn't realized how many people come and read this board.

    Peg, you're always amazing. You started an August thread for us even though you're headed for an MRI in a couple of days and it's summer weather too.

    Sam has her own pool? We should all be so lucky. Even a pool with the water too warm would be better than being turned loose in the heat.

    I was out in it yesterday, going to the hearing aid place (again!) where the van driver has to park a block and a half away but at least there was shade, and the 97' heat hadn't really started up yet. I got home by 1:30. Oddly enough, the hottest time of day around here is 4-6 PM.

    I was afraid I'd be in for a couple of more trips to that place soon because the other aid gave out over the weekend. The trip yesterday was so I could pick up the left aid that needed repair but I had to go there with the bad news that the right one had gone as well. Luckily I had my old aids but they don't do much. I was afraid they'd say I needed new aids. It's been nearly 5 years, and they seem to expect them to give out at that point. I used the old ones for 10 years and was hoping these would do as well.

    Maybe they still will. With a lot of tinkering the audiologist seems to have fixed both of them this time. I'm celebrating! No more trips that I know of for the rest of the summer!

    Yes, BBS, that is always surprising to me too. For a long time I assumed that most of the "guests" were just spammers or whatever, but on second thought, there must be quite a few people who are still interested enough to come here and read.

    Is it 34 guests for all of BT, or for just the MS part of BT?

    Just the MS forum. I looked at a couple of the other forums, and they have their own statistics about who's online.

    There have been times in the last year when there have been over 60 people online here.

    I don't check those figures very often but I did notice that there are almost always at least 30 guests.

    ANN, I hope you can find your glasses. It's so hard to find glasses without my glasses on that I keep spare glasses at the ready in exactly the same place all the time, right by my bedside, in a case.

    I often can't find my glasses in the middle of the night because I drop them somewhere on the floor, usually under the bed, and getting down on my knees and groping around for them with a flashlight isn't something I'm eager to do while sleepy.

    It got to 110' here yesterday but today might seem really cool at a predicted high of 96'. Last evening some tenants rustled me up because the vacant apartment next door to me had all its windows wide open.

    I went out to see what they were talking about. Going out was like entering a blast furnace but I could see the windows--and that the apartment inside was totally empty even though technically there are new tenants. They've signed their paperwork but haven't moved in yet.

    A gathering of at least 7 tenants decided that this was a problem that needed tending to. People have been told not to leave their windows open when they're not there if they're on the first floor. There's a way of opening the window a few inches and locking it so that air will come in but nobody can break in.

    Since new carpeting had been installed in that apartment, the windows had probably been left open to air the place out because the glue creates fumes.

    But the building just got new computers and a new printer, which are all sitting in the media room, right across from this apartment. People were concerned that anyone going in those windows would have immediate access to them--and to the entire building.

    So I made the call to a number we have for issues that can't wait until the next day, and soon I'll be looking over there to make sure that those windows aren't still open.

    And everyone here will be glad to know that I've heard from renee!

    Yes, I actually got a message from renee this morning, and it sounds as if she's doing OK though she's been in the hospital. She didn't say how long she'd been ill but she seems to be hanging in there. I've told her how much she's missed here.


    Cat Dancer, I hope your TV arrangement will work well. There are so many complex parts to anything these days that it's amazing that anything works. You and Tom Cat and the kitties can soon be sitting back and watching your favorite programs!

    Suggested movie for the kitties: "The Mouse That Roared."
