MickD, I had no trouble at all with the link. I just got 'way overbusy and didn't make a comment. I do think your Mika has a nice voice and sounds very competent and professional. I do also have to say that I'm an old "Ella Fitzgerald" kind of guy, and I also did "Summertime" on many occasions back in my youth, so I'm really stuck with the feeling that song just MUST go "slow and easy." Fact is, I've been working on it now off and on for a couple of years, so I'll probably have my own version on YouTube sooner or later. Tell Mika I love her voice, though. She's great.

Good night, folks. Been working on a truly INFESTED laptop. The WORST culprit in the damned thing was NORTON --- blowing horns and popping up dozens and DOZENS of "warnings" --- mostly trying to get itself RENEWED!

GOD, I DESPISE NORTON!

'Night, all.

O.K....when you access the site, scroll down 16 rows to "Porgy and Bess" in the left hand column to hear my Daughter, Mika, perform a duet, singing:

"SUMMERTIME"

The site works this way!

Good thoughts and a couple of Aleve did the trick, Sir Joseph. I'm ready to get outside and check out the irises again....well, except for the 91°F out there right now....

....maybe I'll wait a bit!

Meanwhile, I still have all-rotten 'taters and some of the GOOOOOD fried catfish leftover from yesterday.

Back later.

'Morning. Yep, that's it...just "Mornin'." Starting out bad, with a really REALLY painful left hip. Guess that down-on-the-knees getting the irises into the ground yesterday did me in for a while. Now the only relief is sitting, and that's not good, for sure.

Maybe coffee will help.

Whack, you mess with Kimbu and you won't have to worry about retirement anymore. By the time we get through with you, you'll have the best deal you ever had: Corpses get laid forever!

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

I thought the same thing, joe.

Happy Tuesday! 60 degrees this morning and thunderstorms forecasted.

Walk complete this morning; we've starting doing a short(er) walk in the morning and a longer walk in the evening. We're averaging about 4 miles each day.

Dental appointment went well yesterday.

Off to breakfast and work.

Have a great day all!

WackiPoop, I don't even know what a "wet Willie" is, but I hope it has nothing to do with your bud "Slick Willy."

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

I just told her to give you a big ol' SMOOCHEE!

Shoot, I bet you enjoyed it, too....but DON'T get the idea you'll ever get one in PERSON!

GAGGGGGG!

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Got a lot done today, including putting the two big purple irises I still had in the greenhouse out by the steps going to the carport. Can't wait for those beauties to bloom, but I bet they won't do it 'til next year. Anybody know how long it takes irises to start blooming after being put into the ground?

Well, I gotta get things done here now. Y'all be good.

Wups....MickD, I'd sure like to have your daughter's recipe.

Dp- For Easter dinner my Daughter served a 3-cheese, no boil macaroni and cheese dish with bacon. The sauce is prepared on the stove top, poured over the dry mac and backed 'til the mac is soft. It was, aside from my own mammy's extra sharp white aged cheddar mac 'n cheese, the best I've ever had.
Pushed my chair away from the table after one extra large serving.

Choco- I lost my Lainie in January of 2011 and can't explain just how much I still miss her and how much she meant to me while she was here. I do now realize she will always be with me in heart and mind, and I'll just have to carry on in a way that would make her proud and happy. The physical loss never goes away but the good times are there when you need them.

I surely wish I'd stopped after the first plateful of ham and all-rotten potatoes and "stuff." I didn't. I was miserable all night and still feel like the canary that swallowed the cat.

Oh, well...

Happy Monday! 52 degrees this morning.

Easter services went well. Following the second service, we met our daughter for lunch; she's doing well. My day started really early yesterday so I had to get in a nap late yesterday afternoon.

Choco - thoughts and prayers for you.

I have a dental appointment (routine semi-annual) later this morning so I will work from home for the morning and then go into the office after lunch.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Choco, Idunno what to say except I'm so sorry. Whenever you're able, clue us in a bit more about what happened. Take care.

Folks, I'm going to bed. I'm beginning to feel as if I might need resurrecting if I try to stay awake any longer.

Good night...and God bless us every one.

It's been a little over two months now and I'm beginning to pull out of massive depression. I decided that feeling sorry for myself wasn't doing me any good. Her not being around has clued me in to just how much she did and how much I valued/value her. I've got to get down and begin living again. The yard has deteriorated and that has to be taken care of. Weeds grow like, well, weeds and some you can't tell if they ARE weeds. They may be plants--well, I'll learn eventually. I've got time now to concentrate.

...and Happy Easter....period.

EAT LESS BEEF! The Chinese need it worse than you do!

Yessir, yessir, we know there's a drought! We heard about that!

We also heard that American beef producers are loading TONS and MEGA-tons of American beef onto ships going to CHINA!

Why is that?

MONEY, doooooooods.....MONEY!

As far as the Chinese are concerned, THERE IS NO DROUGHT AND NO SHORTAGE OF ANYTHING!

Why?

'CAUSE THEY GOT THE MONEY!

HAPPY EASTER, China!

Giant pain in the patootie trying to get it into the car! LOL

Stupid GB app keeps turning my pics sideways from my phone, if I take the pic especially for it or upload a gallery pic, doesn't really matter. Maybe I'll try to get it into my latest Bug pics album....
