Good morning. I'm finally here, sipping my tea and reading the posts. Thanks Joe for opening. Hi Haroula, Sue, Gerry, Gail, and all who wander in here today. I have the morning off so I can clean up my apartment. I was with my Mom yesterday. She was so surprised when I walked in. She looks good but is suffering with a cold and a bad cough. I didn't want to leave her.

Have a great day today. smile

Thumping Good Thursday ya'll puppy

It is grey grey grey out there. Ick! It is supposed to be raining and sure looks like it, but it's not raining at this second. I don't think I will be able to get the monkeys out, but maybe the rain will take a break.

I was wiggly and woggly last night...silly brain would not shut up. And of course, just to annoy me, it will not turn on now that I'm vertical.

Just checked the library to see if they had the rest of this series of books I am reading...nope, just the first two. I really don't understand how libraries order. At least they had the first two. So often it's the middle few. I'll have to have Soot check and see if they have it as a physical book as opposed to an ebook. The ebook I can check online, but can't search for the physical book from home.

Back later wave

Nan, I am still free and checking things off my to do list at a lightning pace. lol I needed this desperately so I am not complaining.

Merlin is doing remarkably well. The new supplement I picked up at the pet show really seems to be working for his arthritis. He is doing things he hasn't done in awhile. yay
