Joe, I don't know how you can make yourself go to sleep. I could never do that. At least you get off early, maybe you could get in some head hunting time.

Hubby wants me to make my multibean chili tomorrow so I need to go to the butcher to get my sausage. Merlin is hurting so no run for him. I am going to see if I can get him in to a chiropractor.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 08:56 AM

Joe, I know all too well about getting up at 3:30. Sorry to hear you have to do that now. At least you'll get off early, though. smile

Sorry to hear about Merlin, Ana. frown

Have a nice day, too, Haroula.

Have a good day, too, Gail, and hope you get your coffee. smile

Enjoy your Thursday, Gerry.

Hope you get your computers back, Connie! I'd be going through withdrawal. lol

Sorry about your hard drive, soot. frown Hope work goes well.

I'm off once again today. It appears I forgot to post yesterday as well. I don't know why I keep forgetting to do that on my days off lately. woozy

Anyway, nothing exciting happening today. I will probably find a game or two to play, and pet my kitties. grin

Hope everyone has a terrific Thursday. bunny

EDIT: Boss just called and asked if I wanted to work today. It will only be for a few hours, but every little bit helps at this point. Will see everyone when I get back.

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 11:48 AM

I have all but given up on my yard kid. Going to check the arrest records and warrants but he's been MIA (except for stopping by on Monday) to tell me he couldn't do my lawn and was sorry he missed last Wed-Sunday and then saying he would do it this Wednesday and NOW it's Thursday and still no show. I am tired of waiting for him. Today is the last day for him to appear. If he comes with an excuse or is a no show, I'm going to mow the lawn myself, risking life and limb. rotfl

Good morning everyone!

L4L, I hope you are feeling okay.

Darlene, I think a day off is well deserved!

Connie, hope you get your computers back.

Merlin says thanks for the well wishes. He can hardly get up and he is limping on his front and back legs but he is bugging me to go running. Gotta love the heart of a dog. puppy

I need to run to the butcher and Whole Foods and start cooking. Busy morning so far.

Have a happy day!

Good Morning dear Boomers!! Joe, Ana, Haroula, Gail, Gerry, Connie, Soot, venus, Darlene, Sorta, L4L and all who come later!!! Ana, I have heard really good things about acupuncture for animals, dogs and horses in particular. I feel so badly for your relatively young and healthy boy!! Dark, cool and gloomy here but there are leaves on the apple tree, all two of them but more ready to burst open so there is hope!!! Busy day here with friends stopping by later so off I go to vac the mountains of dog and cat hair that so magically appear this time of year. I wouldn't have it any other way. Happy Gaming everyone. wave

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 01:33 PM

Oh Merlin, please get better. It must hurt him terribly -arthritis is no fun. Does he have symptoms of something systemic going on or maybe just old age? I wish you both well.

Guess wot!!! There are 3 little green tomatos on my plants -they are doing well and healthy and enjoying the outdoors even though they are still in pots. And will remain thus due to the grasshoppers that will emerge soon but they look good on the front porch.

Mr.A. Ritis is still camping out here but appears to be weakening a bit. I'm due for more neurological studies May 3 and perhaps we will get some insight on this. My mother's family -paternal side- has been plagued with this thing for generations and anything I learn about this I'll share with my children -forewarn them.

sorta when you've finished your lawn -do mine- hahahaha

Just burnin' to play games again

Hi all. Thought I posted this morning. Guess not. Must have been dreaming, or hallucinating. Just changed the cat litter out back. Yuck, squish, squish, squish, everywhere I walk.

Okay, who stole spring? Give it back please, please, pretty please!!!

So, what is new with everyone today?

What's up for Easter Sunday? Haven't heard from Susie so no plans as of yet.

Think I will go play a little then do some treadmill.

Good day to everyone.

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 04:29 PM

Lotus, Merlin is healthy and energetic, but not young. He is ten which is good for a Shepherd. He has bad arthritis in his hips and has a carpal/tarsal ligament tear in his front leg. No cures, but I am hoping to find something to maintain his discomfort so he can continue to do what his passion is. My dogs live to run. puppy

Yankee, good to see you! I am glad to hear you are getting a bit better. Maybe the weather warming up will help. hearts

Bets, spring is here today for the first time. My crocuses came up and the robins are camping out in my back yard.

L4L, are you feeling better?

SpaceQ almost Friday!

Well, I am in a funk and it's lovely out so I am taking my bike out. The exercise and fresh air will do me good.

Well, I got my first ten miles of the outdoor biking season under my belt. yay

I brushed the dogs today and put huge mounds of it on the deck and the birds took every last ball of fur. lol

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 05:51 PM

Hi Ana, I bet you made the birdies very happy.

I need to do that too.

My gunk is hanging in there. Bad gunk! Go away!

Son and kids are back from the park. I'm gonna fry some chicken in just a bit. First, though, I've gotta sit for a bit.

Hubby told me we have a play Saturday night, which is good. It takes me most of the day to stop coughing up junk. lol

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 06:41 PM

Ana, I had no idea Merlin was that old. He looks so young and always so energized!! I hope you are able to help him maintain. Our Siberian will be ten in June....uggh!! She still acts like a young and crazy dog at times!!
Posted by: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 07:02 PM

L4L, that was the fastest I ever saw the fur disappear. They will be in nests all over the neighborhood. lol
I am sorry your gunk is still hanging in there. No good. sad

Lotus, Merlin is indeed a well seasoned dog, but he has the heart of a puppy. Your Siberian sounds much like my babies. What would we do without them. hearts

Re: Thursday's - 03/28/13 08:57 PM

Hello,everyone ! Better late than never ,I guess.

Joe,loved the jokes,and hope you got to do something fun today.

Ana,I feel for you with Merlin. It's so hard to say no to them. Maybe you could take them separately ,and his run could be short and sweet ,so he wouldn't feel he missed out ?

If there is a stable near you ,you might ask if they have a chiro -most horse people do dogs,too.

Gave up in the corner today , and cleaned instead.I'm tired ,but it sure looks good.

It is almost hot here today ,what crazy weather.

Sorta ,sounds like your lawn kid needs to hit bottom before he grows up. Is there no one else you can hire ? Be careful if you do it yourself...

Melodee has a stash of feathers and toys under the spare pillow on the bed. Guess she thought all the neighbors dropping by, or all the neighborhood chihuahua's , might take some lol what a goof !

Boy , i sure can't wait for some fresh spring vegetables to show up in the stores here....I have winter food blahs .

See you all later !

Hi people. Some sad news to tell you. My BIL is not expected to live through the night. He's in the hospital with pneumonia and cancer and is on a breathing machine as he can't breath on his own. The doctors say that he probably won't live through the night. I'm so sad sad He's the brother I never had. Thank you for all your prayers.

I am praying for you all Midgie. hearts

Niteowl, he can't run at all right now, but they also won't go without the other. They are very close. Shadow won't leave my side if Merlin is not with. In Illinois a chiropractor can't work on animals including horses without a vet present since 2010. Most of ours went away but this place is a rehab vet that does a myriad of things.
melodee sounds like a horder. rotfl
