This thread is long so I am closing it. Look for the new one.
Good afternoon Jill, Lily, Lee and Kathryn. Well we are waiting for Hurricane Isaac to come as I know you are too Kathryn. Let's pray if it comes that its not big.
Jill, what a beautiful rose. I see you changed your avatar...I like it.
Lily, sorry that your first apricots were eaten but you're right...better that than starving birds. I am not sure you are supposed to cut fruit trees. It might kill them or make them where they won't bear fruit next year. Being able to adjust the size of the photos is probably harder than using I.E. I.E. was easy to resize.
Lee, I read in another group that the bird fair was wonderful. Did you take lots of pics? I bet you were real tired afterwards.
Kathryn I hope you are feeling better. Have you decided what kind of job you might look for.
You could still use the pool, you are going to get wet either way lol
Saves a lot of time messing about elsewhere to do it.
I'm glad it has rained here today though because I haven't been able to do any watering out there lately.
shame the birds pinched all my apricots after me waiting 4 years for the first fruit!!!
Hopefully might get some raspberries later as the bush has got big,cant let it get too high though,not in such small surroundings.
Wow those trees have got so high,need to get some off of the top of plum tree if possible.
Impossible with the apple and Apricot ones,they are as high as the roof!!!!
Good evening Lily, Kathryn and Jill. We had a nice rain this afternoon so there went my swimming. lol I haven't had a good hot day in the pool for about 2 weeks.
Jill, I love your purple rose...it is so pretty.
Lily, thanks for explaining to Kathryn and Jill how to make photos smaller within our group. Have noticed lately (or is just my using Firefox) that it is harder to get the pictures smaller. It can be done but not as easy as it used to be. The little arrows just don't pull the pic properly or something. I love your kitty tag.
Kathryn, we love seeing you whenever you are able to stop in. I'm not a regular poster either anymore it seems. Oh yes, the government can be slow to do things they have to do BUT you and I better not be. Anyway I'm glad your hubby will be getting his benefits back. And I'm glad you're not taking a bartender job. That can be very strenuous. Do they have a UPS call center close to you? I started out (when I lived in Kentucky and worked at United Parcel Service...U.P. being a customer service rep on the phone. Well we had headsets, etc. Real easy, fun and you're sitting down. And it was so easy to hire on....it shocked me. Or some other employer where you can sit and do phone work. Just check around.
Well peeps I will be going for now. I know it's evening (except for
you, Lily) but I loved this little alpacea giving his/her mommy a kiss beneath her nose so I
made a good morning tag. Maybe I'll make a good night one too.

as Vicky said 600 or less is best as over that stretches the page,
your pic is 750x 500.
That's why it is easier to downsize`them here in the box before submitting
Here is how I have made one smaller in these boxes
Kathryn you do not need 'properties ' to downsize pics.
that is only to check the size of pic and usually shows when you right click where it also says 'copy' and select all.
All you need to do is put the pic in these boxes and click on a corner of it,then you get arrows show and with the cursor you can just slide it towards centre and it goes smaller.
then just preview to see if it worked or submit.
Hello everybody. Sorry it's been quite a few days since I last dropped in. I have tried several times and dealing with Care2's latency and technical problems, I've just thrown my hands in the air. Still having problems today. So, forgive me for not stopping in daily.
Thank you Vicky for your love & support. Yes, David can get his VA pension back, it just takes a lot of patience for the government and getting the required paperwork in on time. It's more of a pain in the neck. And yes, finances & other issues are what's keeping me down. I want to work yet I'm scared to. I did think more on the bartending job and decided against it. I could see myself hurting myself again. Especially if I am having to move fast and be on my feet for long periods of time. Not a good job for me.
Lily, I even don't know where to find properties on here to downsize picture. I was just letting know that Jill can do it since she's already on Photobucket. That's what I do. I have a picture here that is a little big yet within a reasonable size. My question is how do I downsize it here on Care2?
Jill, as always I love your graphix. I especially love the purple rose. Lavendar roses are my favorite flowers.
Lee, how are you dear friend? I pray things are going well for you. I too love ducks. I love the tag that Vicky made for you.
Well, I'm outta for now. I pray everyone has a great Friday. Love ya'll.
Hi Vicky, Jill, and Lily,
Beautiful white rose, Jill.
Lily, a little bit at a time, that's how I do it or I'd never get anything done.
I'm sorry, Vicky. It seems if something can go wrong it usually does.
Well still warm here although it is cooler in the fish tank at the moment.
Lee when I do finally get to do things in the garden I will be dwarfed by everything I reckon!!!!
my trees are very tall and yet that apricot one is supposed to be a dwarf tree) they got that wrong!!!
Ptetty much high as the roof same as the Eucalyptus tree.
It NEVER fails! If I copy my post I never have a problem. If I DON'T copy it first I lose it!! Well I am not going to retype everything I wrote.
Jill, I had to delete 2 of your posts. 1 was a duplicate and the other said the picture was moved. Your graphics are very pretty.
Lee, I hope you are okay, and yes you can save the tag without losing the sparkles.
Lily, I hope you're doing okay and I apologize for giving Lee credit for the info on how to shrink the large graphics.
Kathryn, I hope you're feeling better and will stop in soon.
Hi Jill and Lily,
Jill, I love them all - beautiful yellow roses, very cute puppy, and the lovely pink flower in darkness with a reflection! These will have me smiling all day.
Lily, just wait 'til fall and it will all wilt down and be easier to clean up, won't it? Nothing you can do so don't worry about it. I hope your back is all well soon.
a bit cooler today and slight rain, but temperature still high in fish tank.
still managing to get out to feed birds and put water out.
birds have eaten my apricots!! still rather that then have them hungry.
still like a jungle out there lol
She's so lovely with her music and roses.
Hi Lily, Jill, and Vicky,
Jill, the graphics are lovely. I love the dove in flowers and the roses in a breeze best. You know how I like those "special effects"!
Lily, I hope you're much better soon. I need to find out your brother's birthday as I want to send him a card.
Vicky, I love it just like it is. You know how I love sparklies and reflections! Will the sparklies save if I save it or will they disappear?
still only here for a minute as nothing much changed on the back business.
Got some coming tomorrow afternoon.
Lee, here is your Pekin duck tag. I hope it's okay. If you don't like the glittery stars I will give you the other one that don't have them.
Hi everybody! Well we're having another rainy day and I don't mind at all.
Kathryn, I'm sorry you are depressed, believe me I know personally how it is. I'm sure it's because of all the financial trouble (no job, your hubby losing his social security, etc) that is making you sad. I forget, will hubby be able to regain his social security? That is such a strange situation. I hope if you go to work in a bar that you don't hurt your back. Thank you so much for offering to help Jill with her lovely graphics.
Jill, one of your posts was blank so I went ahead and deleted it; just wanted to let you know.
Lee, I will definitely make you a duck tag; I don't know why I didn't think of that. I just remember that you said you love roses and birds and ducks didn't cross my mind. DUH! I'll post your duck tag in here after I make it. Thank you also for giving advice to Jill about how to shrink her graphics in here.
Lily, so glad you are able to pop in now and again. It's strange not seeing you post on a daily basis. I love your cute doggy tag. Be careful with your daily chores so you can hurry back to us.
a week today now, about time it went.
be glad when this back problem has gone so I can get back on here properly
Hi Jill, Kathryn, Vicky and Lily,
Jill, all the flowers are especially gorgeous today. I love them all.
Lily, I hope you're all better soon.
Kathryn, I hope things get better for you soon. It just doesn't seem fair. I hope you can help Jill. She posts such beautiful graphics.
Vicky, I was just too sick to get on the computer yesterday. I'd love a ducky tag best, I think, if you can do it. My favorite duck is the white Pekin (like my avatar). That's what all my best ducky friends have been. You know me though. I like most things with feathers!
Thank you so much for helping me. You are a sweetie. I went to photobucket and could not find any thing like that. where would it be. I look over the whole page and couldn't find it. I pick out a picture and didn't see it. Pls help me. Jill
Hello dear friends. I apologize for not stopping by. I have not been feeling very well. I think I have some depression and it's keeping me from doing daily chores, etc... Lily, I will praying for your back. I know all too well about having back pain/problems. I am still having severe pain myself and it's been getting worse over these past few days. So sitting up or even lying down has been painful.
Vicky, I totally understood the "pot" instead of the "post". LOLOL!!! I know all too well about typos. giggles I totally understand about not wanting to get a job and it messing up any unemployment you may get. Comcast actually isn't taking applications right now. So, I'm looking at other jobs here locally. With no check from the VA for hubby, we are both looking at going to work somewhere. There's a local bar that is hiring yet I fear I may hurt my back even further. Keeping you in my prayers dear friend.
Lee, thank you for your prayers and support. I pray things are well with you.
Jill, hey sweetie, I deleted two of your posts since the picture disappeared. It wasn't anything you did wrong. Just the picture wasn't showing up and I just cleand up the thread. I love the photos you post. And just to let you know, if you use Photobucket, you can actually click onto a thumbnail that says resize.This is where you can put the size of the picture to whatever size you need to post here. It's not hard. If you need any further help with it, email me here on Care2 and I'll be more than happy to help you.
Well, I'm outta here for now. Just wanted to at least stop by. Have a great Saturday. Love ya'll dearly.
Good evening Lee, Jill and Lily. It's late but I wanted to stop in and say hi.
Lily it is so good to see you! I know the poor birds need seeds and water but please take care so you don't do more damage to your back. We miss you.
Jill, I'm not sure why you are not understanding what I am saying about photo sizes. Like I explained in my previous post, 600 pixels or below will be okay but any larger usually stretches out the page. Your pretty blue graphic (below here) is 768 x 1024 pixels. Is there a reason why you didn't make it smaller like the other pretty ones you posted today?
Lee, I hope you are doing okay. Your wrists are probably hurting although you usually post a smiley or two to let us know you are okay.
Have a good evening everyone.
Hi friends just having a quick look in to see if any messages or e-mails.
cant be long because still got pain.
Managed to drag myself out to feed the birds today as they hadn't had anything for a week and the water dried up too
Hope things get back to normal soon as I am fed up with it all as you can imagine.
Hope all is well with you all, back soon I hope
Jill, your pretty moving roses from Monday are way over sized (650 x 940) and are beginning to stretch the page. Please keep them no larger than 600 x 600. Actually I prefer sizes no larger than 550 x 550 but the 600 x 600 aren't too bad and won't stretch the page.
Thank you much my friend!
Good morning Jill and Lee. I hear it thundering on and off so I expect
we'll get more rain. In fact I think I see it in the forecast for most
of this week.
Jill, your graphics are indeed pretty and I think I, like Lee, think my favorite is the snow globe with the hummingbirds and flowers.
Lee, is the rain heading your way or have you been getting it? If so, I hope it is not a bad storm. Since you like roses, I made a tag for you. Just save it to your Photobucket acct or in a folder on your computer. It already has the code so it will post properly. Would you like a hummingbird tag? Just let me know.
All your graphics are lovely, but I think I like the snow globe with the hummingbirds and flowers best. I love birds as much as I love roses! I have 3 parrots, 2 lovebirds, a pair of canaries, and a starling.
Hi Jill and Vicky,
Good evening Lee, Jill, Kathryn and Lily at home. Getting ready to get my jammies on and get in bed to watch t.v..
Thanks Lee for checking about my computer. The only problem I am having is posting colors in the old format so actually (and hopefully) my computer is okay. How are you feeling?
Jilly, I love the kitty! I just noticed your roses a couple of posts down. They are moving and so pretty!
Kathryn, did you put your Comcast app in yet? I hope you get a job with them. I'm waiting to see what unemployment is going to do cause I don't want to start a job I might not like and mess up my unemployment. Did you have a good time at the beach? I hope your sinuses are better.
Lily, I know you won't be visiting right now but you are in my prayers.
Hi Jill and Vicky,
Jill, beautiful roses. Of course, I like the one reflecting in the water best.
Vicky, I asked about your Firefox problem. He says there's no compatibility thingy on Firefox that he knows of. He says you need to have a computer geek look at your computer because something is definitely off.
Stupid Care2...again it won't let me edit my previous post. Kathryn I meant to say for you to put the towel around your head and put it over the boiling POT not post.
Hello ladies. Sorry I haven't been here in a few days. For 2 days I didn't get online. We've had some rain on and off but nothing like before. Just enough to make it steam.
Lily, I'm so sorry you will be laid up again. That's scary that you didn't do anything to aggravate it this time. Did you say you will need an operation? Take care of yourself and we'll see you when you're feeling better. You're in my prayers.
Kathryn, sinuses are the worse! One time I got it sooo bad that when I lifted my head from the pillow it felt like goosh was moving around in my brain. EEKS! In the 70's there was a little green pill that would dry you up FAST...of course it was good and they took it off the market. Another old remedy is to put some mentholatum in water and boil on the stove, wrap a towel around your face over the post (so no steam escapes) and breathe in the fumes. It opens up your sinuses and it drains out. However, what worked for me was going to the EENT doctor and letting him drain my sinuses. It didn't hurt at all and I've no trouble with them since. Laying in the sun at the beach may help dry them up. We don't have Comcast in Mississippi (I wish we did) but I will try applying online anyway. thanks!
Lee, how is everything with you? Have the storms left your area? I know you will be so happy when they move on.
Pretty graphics Jill (especially the sunflower) but still a little large. Thank goodness it's not stretching the page.
Well I gotta run; have a blessed evening ladies.
Hi Kathryn, Lily, and Jill,
Jill, all your graphics are gorgeous. Of course I love the dewy roses that change. It's so pretty.
Lily, I just hate that. I hope you are better soon.
Kathryn, I wish you were better too. Being so sick on top of your back problems takes the cake.
hi friends just to let you know i wont be around for a while again as i have now put my back out!!!
wasn't doing anything either.
Painful sitting and can hardly walk so wanted to let you know so you aren't worrying where i am again
Hi Lily, Jill, and Kathryn,
Kathryn hi, thats bad you cant get an appointment.
I phoned my doctors surgery today and have got an appointment for Monday afternoon !!!!!
I hope you get one soon, not good the things over there it seems.
I am going because I need to see about new supplies for my new tablets as I dont want them to get low.
not going to get any more home visits for blood tests, got to go to clinic next Thursday.~
I really want to get something done in the garden but it is a bit hot today for me.
Hey there folks. I'm still hanging in there. Still have a nasty cough and massive sinus drainage. Still haven't been able to set a dr.'s appointment yet. Thought I could get in next week, but not looking too promising.
Vicky, have you begun looking for work yet? I just found out that Comcast, our cable service hires folks and you can work from home. I'm going to put my application in Monday. I just don't have the energy today. Keeping you in my prayers through this time and always.
Lily, how are things going for you today?
Jill, as always love seeing all the floral graphix. Keeps me smiling.
Lee, how are you feeling today? How are your wrists?
Well, I'm outta here. Going to the beach later today. Have a fantastic Friday. Love ya'll.
Hi Lily, Vicky and Jill,
Jill, beautiful, beautiful flowers. I especially like the yellow rose reflecting in the water.
Lily, it's a little cooler but very humid because we've had thunderstorms all week. They are supposed to be even worse today.
Vicky, I'll ask him. I'm having all kinds of computer probs today so I have to talk to him anyway. Unfortunately he has to work all weekend, but I'll do the best I can.
Well Vicky bet that cooled you down!!
It's funny we dont mind getting wet in pools or the sea but if it rains -up with the umbrella hahaha
It was very warm when I went for my test ,so didn't need a coat.
if it gets too hot in there plants start to break up and I have just put some new ones in!!!
Lee is it still hot wher eyou are?
Good evening Lily, Jill and Lee. Well we have some massive rain today. I was out and about when the sky became really black and the skies opened up. I got soaked...you could have wrung the water out of my shirt and hair. It stopped later and the sun came out and now it is pouring again. It's okay though, I can stay inside.
Pretty graphics, Jill. I especially love the glittering hearts.
Lily, I know how to make the graphics smaller but in another group the whole page is stretched out sometimes, but only to me. Lee asked a friend of hers about it and he explained that there is a box to click on to make the page look normal. I had no problem doing that in I.E. but I cannot locate the little symbol in Firefox.
Lee, I hope you are getting some much needed rain and I hope the damp doesn't make your wrists hurt worse.
Gotta run folks! Nighty night!
Vicky it is quite simple to make postings smaller when you put them in these boxes.
just click in the corner of pic and the arrows come up and then you slide cursor to make it smaller.
Lee, remember in the duck group when your friend explained how to make the postings smaller and the page not stretched out? Well in Firefox I don't see that little thing to click on. I wonder if he knows where it is.
Good afternoon Lily, Lee and Jill. Well I was going to get in the pool but it started thundering and clouded up so I didn't. Of course it never rained but it was too late. Hopefully tomorrow afternoon.
Lily, I hope you have a safe trip to the clinic and that you get good news. Will you have to continue to travel there or will the doctor's come back to your apartment? I don't know how to change settings but I sure wish I could post colors in the old format. I have no problem with the new.
Lee, I'm so sorry your wrists are hurting you today. I wish you would have at least one day of no pain.
Jill pretty graphics...especially the one with the glitter.
Hi friends good evening,
Getting this in early as I cant stay up late on account of having to go to the hospital clinic for the blood test tomorrow.
It is a nusiance having to travel there as I haven't even been out properly since getting home from the hospital.
Vicky I wish I knew how to solve the problem of not getting colours in Firefox.
I have the latest version now and it is still the same.
there must be something in the settings somewhere stopping it but it is complicated as there are so many different things there.
no problem on AOL and IE.
Hi Kathryn, Lily, Jill, and Vicky,
My wrists are hurting today. Have a good day, everyone.
Vicky I have found that sometimes but if you watch bottom of screen to make sure it says done then I usually find it works.
But not if words at bottom are still loading
Stinkin' Care2! Every time I try to edit a post I get a new page! This place is making me sick!
Anyway, Lily I forgot to tell you I love your dog with the laptop. It is sooo funny.
Good afternoon Lily, Lee, Kat and Jill. Another hot day and I have Bible study in a bit so I won't be able to get in it and cool off. I've been on the phone all day with various things so no time.
Kathryn, I'm so sorry you are battling a cold. It seems the summer ones are worse than if you get them in the winter. At least they are for me. However if you got an appointment for next week you are one of the fortunate ones. Usually there is a month waiting list. So ridiculous.
Pretty graphics Jill...the flowers are awesome. It looks like some sort of lily.
Lee, I can actually stand the heat, it's the humidity that's the killer for me. It's like I can do nothing but lay around in the cool of my house. I can't breathe when i go outside (unless I'm in the pool). My truck has no a/c.
Lily, I wonder if they will make you have to go in for your check ups from now on. I hope not. Let us know how your blood tests come out. Hopefully your reading will be normal. I wish my garden was weedless or part way weedless, but it is way too hot to get out there.
Gotta run...Bible study in a bit and I have to get my bath and wash my hair. See you ladies later.
When I say 'friend' it really means 'friends'
Hey there dear friends. Sorry I haven't been around this past week. I have been battling a very nasty cold. I tried getting into to see the doctor this week and they're telling me I have to re register and then they can schedule me an appointment for next week. I've been dealing with a nasty cough and it's been really bad. I haven't felt like getting online much. Anyway.... I'm around. Just not much until I can get over this cold. I miss ya'll and love ya'll dearly.
I dozed off after dinner thats why I didn't come back on here last night as it was late by then.
It is cool here at the moment,had a little rain yesterday.
I did a bit in garden today,not much though but at least getting there slowly
I have to go to the clinic in the hospital for my blood test on Thursday,guess they are fed up coming here.
Hope they dont expect me to go every day as I have to take 2 buses..
Hi Vicky and Jill,
Lovely flowers, Jill. They help keep me cheerful. These storms are so scary to me.
Vicky, I do the best I can to stay cool and hydrated, but this late in the summer I always stay heat sick. This summer is worse than ever because the temps are so high and started so early in May.
Hi Lee, Jill and Lily if she comes in. The heat index was 108 today and HUMID so that makes it seem much hotter. My mom wasn't home today and I was babysitting her dog and bird and taking care of my 2 dogs, too, so I didn't get a chance to get in the pool. Good thing, too, cause a storm creeped up on us.
Jill, your roses are so pretty and the sunflower is cute.
Lee, do you go out early in the morning or later in the evening so it won't be as hot? I don't even attempt to do anything outside as I might pass out. How my son mows an acre of grass and weed eats too in this weather is beyond me. I am so fearful that he will get a heat stroke.
Well I gotta run....as usual here is another of my tags. I think it's kinda cute. lol
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
Yes, we just keep having bad storms. The storms are supposed to continue all this week.
Darn it's thundering again. Lily, it's wonderful that you're having nice weather. I've almost forgotten what that's like.
Jill, lovely, lovely flowers especially the roses.
Vicky, I know I'm getting sick from the heat. I stay in a/c as much as I can, but the work has to be done. Nice tags. We love to see them.
Hi ladies! Well after church me and my mom put on our swim suits and enjoyed a nice, cool hour in the pool. It felt marvelous!
Jill, your graphics are lovely; especially the bird one...I love glitter and the colors are outstanding. However a couple of yours are way over 550 pixels.
Lily, you need to take it easy for a while and catch up on your strength. Yep, doves/pigeons are real slow when trying to fly away from a predator. At least your weather is cool for pulling weeds....just don't push yourself.
Where's are dear Lee? She's had bad storms and sore hands so she may be taking it easy for a day or two.
Just wanted to stop in and say I and show you another tag I made. I know you must be tired of hearing me say that. lol
Posted this once and it disappeared!!
It has been quite nice here today with sunshine and a couple of showers in between.
No Lee still not many birds, but a squirrel and pigeons and some tits on the feeder.
Had to chase a cat off as it was after the pigeons and they do not fly away that fast sometimes.
Dont want any getting caught as that other cat that time caught one.
Did a bit of clearing up out there but not much,so many weeds out there!
Hi Lily, Lee & Jill. Today was another scorcher but I didn't get a chance to get in the pool. But I will tomorrow!
Lily, sorry your fruit wasn't good this year...maybe next. Hope your apricots are good. I like the little doggy...but he doe look mad. I hope your blood tests come out okay.
Lee, how your hands feeling today? Hopefully they don't hurt as much. Be sure to stay in your air conditioned rooms as it is brutal outside.
Pretty rose, Jill.
Here's a cold drink..another tag I made.
This post was modified from its original form on 04 Aug, 20:03
Hi Lily and Jill,
Jill, I love all the lovely flowers. They are all beautiful, but I especially like the dewy rose.
Lily, he looks very angry, but very cute too. Do you think it's the odd weather that ruined your plums?
he looks angry doesn't he? lol
Weather not too bad here, rain at times but sun is out at the moment and it is nearly 7pm!!
Those plums I took in were no good,I found a little worm in one!
and the other one I tried was sour,not like I had last time.oh well perhaps I will have better luck with the apricots.
Apples growing too.
Not having another blood test until Monday-good job.
They have been having trouble getting much out of me for some reason,maybe it is the tablets I dont know.
Getting a bit fed up with them anyway.
Cant write any more now as I have to go to bed because they are coming to do blood test in the morning and I got to be up !! lol
Hi Vicky, Jill, and Lily,
Jill, I just love all those beautiful flowers.
Vicky, I just love the "hare" tag too.
Lily, I also love the gentle, cool falling rain. It's so nice. All we seem to have is heat and storms.
You all are making me smile so big on this scary day. Thunderstorms coming.
been raining a bit here again.
I thought the last pic would cool you down a bit!!
Our forecast is cooler and more rain on the way.
Been catching up on the ironing,had a big bag of it waiting for me.
Still not so much activity in the garden,although the pigeons are always hanging around.
One squirrel,yesterday it toddled past the back door!
And one feeding today,probably the same one.
Guess they will all show up before long.
Hi Vicky and Lily,
I overslept. I am so late. Back tomorrow.
Happy August 1st ladies! Where did July go? This year is whipping right along. Christmas is just a little over 4 months away!
Lily, you are so fortunate to have doctor's who make house calls. I hope your blood tests turn out okay. You're right, so many people don't put out water and food for the animals. They especially need water. I can just see your Danios chasing each other thru the tank and the loach defending his territory from the other one. lol
Jill, your graphics are gorgeous...I especially love the one with the roses and the rain coming down. Your sizes are perfect.
Lee, yes I think the purple flower is an Azalea. That is a rare color for it....it is lovely. Is your hands feeling somewhat better today? I hope so. Too bad you live so far away or I'd invite you over for a cool swim. What I did last year when my mom's pool wasn't up was to buy a child's hard plastic pool (for about $10.00) and fill it up with water and just lay across it with my butt and part of my back in the water. It wasn't much but it did cool me off. lol
Here's another tag I made; I felt a little whimsical. lol

TILLY AUGUST 1ST
Hi friends, my sister in law took this pic this morning,how she's grown!!
Been quite nice today but a couple of showers.
Saw a squirrel and the robin,I hope the birds will be back but I reckon I might have lost some because they had no water to drink and it was really hot a couple of days.
not everyone puts water out unfortunately.
Maybe they ate my plums as I only found 4.There are quite a few apricots, I like those but probably the birds do too!!!!!!
Had my blood test this morning they said it was a bit high and not to take the blood thinning tablet tonight.
They are coming back in the morning.
At least the rash has almost gone now.
Hi Lily, Jill, and Vicky,
Lily, I'm happy you're back. Your birds and squirrels will be back. I like the animated duck duck and the puppy.
Jill, I love the graphics. The roses in the rain and the flower (Is it an azalia?) are lovely.
Vicky, I don't have a pool. I don't even know anyone who does. You're very lucky to have access to one. That is a precious tag. I love it.
Same with deleting messages they come back again after .
sorry you are all having trouble with the heat and making you feel rotten.
I couldn't stand that heat myself,it was very hot a couple of days when I was in hospital, but thankfully cool in there.
V icky a neighbour fed my fish for me(the one whos cat I used to look after)
of course the tank got a bit messy and I have now managed to clean it up some and change some water.
The temperature has dropped some in there now thankfully although they came to no harm when it was up to 86!!!!
My largest Clown Loach is really big so much larger than the other one , no wonder it thinks it is boss and shoves the other one out of the tunnel lots of the time.
Thunderstorms and hands bad.
Good evening ladies. Well thank the Lord (and my brother & mom) the pool pump is working again. The water was lovely today and I can't wait to get in again tomorrow.
Lily, I'm glad you're back but just take it easy and post when you can. I was so worried about your fish but thank the Lord they're okay. Who fed them for you? I bet its funny watching the Danio chase his parents. lol My garden is a mess too...too hot to do anything so it will have to stay that way. I'm glad some of your flowers are doing well.
Lee, I'm sorry you have a stomach bug. Yep it could well be the heat. We've got at least 2 more months of it. Just try to stay cool. Do you have a pool?
Kathryn, I'm sorry you have been sick too. Summer is the worst time (at least for me) to get ill. It seems to last longer. I hope you have a ball at the concert and your sickness will be gone. Let us know how it was.
Jill, very pretty graphics. However your rose is very large. Maybe that one slipped by you. lol
Here's another tag I made..wishing you all a good night (or morning)
I shouldn't be on here so late at the moment but wanted to get it done.
guess I will catch up with everything in time.
The rash seems a bit fainter at the moment,will be glad when it is gone.
Had a blood test at home today and another due on Wednesday.
Have managed to get out to feed the birds, haven't seen so many.
hope I haven't lost some now what with me not being here to feed them and put water out.
it was so hot too a couple of days when I was away.
lots of my flowers in baskets died off due to sun and no water.
But the petunias in the tub survived and my apricots are still doing well although I can see birds have nibbled one!!
garden is like a jungle but cant do anything about it.
My fish tank was 86 when I came home!!! it has gone down now though and they fish dont seem to have had any ill effects from it.
so it is better now.
Hi Vicky, Kathryn, and Jill,
Beautiful pink rose, Jill. All the graphics are nice.
Kathryn, have fun. I've got some kind of a stomach bug. Or it may be the heat getting to me. I don't do well in the heat.
Vicky, I think you're just distracted. Way too much going on. It's the same with me. Very cute tag and so true.
I hope you feel well enough to come back soon, Lily.
Hello ladies. Sorry I haven't been around these past few days. I have gotten a flu like bug and it's pretty nasty. Coughing, sinuses and aches with a slight fever. Haven't felt doing much of anything. I'm doing all I can because tomorrow we're going to see Aerosmith in concert. Sick or not, I'm not missing this. Anyway... just wanted to stop in and say hello. Love ya'll. So good to see everyone stopping in. Have a great Sunday.
Hi Lee and Jill. We got a bad storm today but it didn't last that long. My brother came over and cleaned my mom's pool but didn't check the pump before he left and of course the pump is not working. Sigh. Since he lives about 90 miles from here, my other brother will come and check it out and he can fix anything. Until then we'll just keep shock and ground up chlorine tablets in it.
Jill, I love your little hummingbird graphic and I might have to snag it. thank you for resizing your pics....no more headaches for me. lol
Lee, I see in my last post that I called you Jill. I'm going crazy it seems. I'm messing up games, calling people by wrong names and who knows what else. I don't blame you for waiting til the weather cools before messing with getting your stuff from behind the refrigerator. But the way our weather is going it seems eventually we won't even have cold weather.
Talk to you later. Maybe Lily will be back tomorrow. Here is a tag I made.
Hi Jill, Vicky, and Lily,
Vicky, it's still too hot in my kitchen for wrestling with the refrigerator. It will just have to wait for cooler weather.
Jill, all your graphics are just lovely- birds and flowers and especially the puppies! I love to look at them all.
I hope you are all well soon, Lily.
Good afternoon Lee, Jill, Kathryn and Lily! YAY! Lily is back but I'm sure she's probably still tired so we'll see her later.
Jill, you really posted some cute graphics! I especially love the giraffe and the puppies kissing. I know you try hard not to post them too big and you've been real good at it, too. I'm just afraid a couple of them were getting a little large and if they stretch the page then I'll get a headache.
Jill, I hope your hands are feeling better and that the winds have died down. I know they can be really scary for you. Did you ever get your stuff from behind the refrigerator?
Kathryn, I'm so glad you found your papers. You're like me...never think to look where they belong. lol
Lily, it is soooo good to have you back; we all missed you terribly. This is for you:
Hi Vicky, Kathryn, and Jill,
Hands bad today...
Hello dear friends. I finally found the "misplaced" paperwork. I had filed it in my "important papers" folder. Go figure that I would hide them from myself. LOL!!!!
Well, not much going on at this end of the computer. Just checking in and letting folks know that I'm alive & kicking. Have a terrific Thursday everyone. Love ya'll.
The other thread had lots of posts so here is our new one! Here is the link to the old one:
Here is the last post in the old one:
Good morning Lee, Kathryn and Jill. A very hot and humid day today; I guess since my mom's pool is drained temporarily that I will stay inside where it's cool.
Lee, I didn't realize your winds were that bad. That can be frightening, especially around pine trees. The darn jerk down the street (I may have mentioned this before) dug a trench up and down the road but decided to also dig around 2 huge pine trees that will fall on my mom's trailer and vehicle should they come down! By digging around the tree (instead of just in front like I thought he would do) he cut the roots in the back and there is a trench all around the tree so that it has lost most of its stability; and of course they are pine trees. All I can do is ask God to keep them from falling should a bad wind or storm come.
Kathryn, you poor thing...so much on you at this time! Why did they completely cut off your hubby's VA benefits? That's horrible! It seems people from other countries can waltz in here and get our benefits....ones that we are denied even though we paid into the system or served our country with! And to see people that are citizens but haven't or don't work and they are eligible for benefits, too!! So unfair! I hope you find all your paperwork. Maybe the IRS will owe you all some money back. Please come here to vent whenever necessary...we all do. I am saying prayers for you.
Jill, very pretty graphics as usual. Please try to keep their size to no larger than 600 (preferable 550) pixels. When the page stretches it is so hard to read the posts. Where is the lady who showed you how to resize them? I haven't seen her here in a long time. What was her name? I wonder where she is?
Have a great day ladies!
