Had a fabulous Mothers Day with one kid and her hubby. Took a tour of downtown Prescott, ate lunch, saw an arts fest, then toured the Sharlot Hall museum (all the buildings). Sharlot founded the museum in 1928 to preserve the territorial Governors Mansion and other buildings. She was a woman of distinction,a poet, historian and independent thinker. Beautiful rose garden too.

Traffic crash with a bus and motorcycle put a 6-hour delay on I 17 for my kiddos going back home. Should have been 1.5 hours and it was 5.5 instead. The only bad thing about Prescott. Only one way in and out.

Enjoy hearing about your lives, especially those who travel !


Youngest son took me to breakfast, wonderful time just sharing one on one. He spent Sunday with wife, teen-age son and soon to be teen daughter And in-laws. Older son, lives in CO, sent cards And telephoned that evening !


Managed to use the lawn tractor on field grass to mow dandelions although do not think they are dandy! Gardner says not to use the grass catcher (the spring sprung) ! Do you use the catcher Or just let the mowed grass stay on the ground ?
This was Saturday/Friday, seems the 2nd time this week, mow the yard and the dandelions pop up behind ! Bless have a yard and use the tractor .

The usual blah mothers day here. Two kids but no contact. It has been this way for years.

Had a shot of gel in my right eye today. I have glaucoma, had the surgeries some years ago. But the right eye seems to be a problem, the back of it swells which distorts my vision. I have an excellent ophthalmologist and he has given me these shots a few times before. Could be much worse.... could have gone blind but did not.

Looks like decent weather here in central NY for a nice change. Looking forward to temps in mid-80s.

NY Gal: Sorry for your inconsiderate kids. Mine have not always thought that much of me on other days, either. It all depends on how they take what I say to them. Most of the time it's interpreted as an insult, when I never meant it that way.

I recall a couple of holidays where things were very rocky. I guess what they have going on in their lives seems to mean more than contacting dear old mom. My son and daughter in law are going thru some stuff now with their 15 year old, so I called him yesterday, because I didn't think he would call me.

Anyway, Happy Mother's Day to you NYgal !!!!! (a little late)

I went up to NYC last week for an overnight stay at my uncle's apartment in Manhattan. We visited two historic properties up in far northwestern part of Manhattan: The Grange, a mansion that Alexander Hamilton built and lived in, and the nearby Morris-Jumel mansion nearby where Aaron Burr lived after he married the widow Jumel. These neighbors got involved in a duel and Burr shot Hamilton, who died shortly later.

Both mansions date back to the 18th Century (with some early 19th Century improvements) and are lovely to visit.

I mowed and he cleaned the bank off. He took my wife to casino and they ate and did some gambling. I did Jimmy Johns for dinner.

My wife got to meet the kittens that my step-son rescued a few weeks. He does not like cat, they sure warmed his heart. She messaged a video of them crying, when I played it all my animals came running. They were very concerned
How precious! God Bless those who help and care for other living creatures (this includes humans, of course)!

PhxBarb, let those of us who want to move somewhere (Remember that Thread?), together we purchase and make it our own! Will gladly assist in the kitchen, hang clothes out on the line to dry and listen to those who play instruments out on our front porch in the evenings---drinking beverages of choice ! Decaf espresso, sweet tea, dry martini anyone ? !


Curmudgeon, lots know him here, just Posted his dear wife passed away. Such a shock as I have not Posted myself here in a long time. Told him this Thread was such a comfort to me when Bruce's journey ended 5 years ago. As the computer, after his passing, was causing problems, decided not to repair it anymore. It was so easy to isolate myself on this Thread as well Grief and Mourning, didn't want to leave the house !


On a bright note, happy smiles, on fellow walkers in the park in town. Would like to make more healthy eating choices And exercise i.e. keeping mouth shut, legs moving !
