This morning started at 8:30 at the dentist to get a tooth prepared for a crown which will be installed February 9th. I also had an old filling replaced. Good news was that I did not need a root channel in the area of the crown.

Good after to all of the Front Porchers! Hoping you are have a great day! We are looking at an overnight snow storm with about 4" of white stuff. 

Have a restful evening.

 

I'm having an issue posting photos. Am I the only one?

Good luck with the teenager thing. Last time I tried that he wanted more than my first car cost.

Called my neighbor, 10 minutes later he found the oil fill beneath that last black shutter down by the garage , and had cleared the path👍.

 

Oh what I wouldn’t give to be 40-ish again.Tomorrow oil that costs more than my first Mustang and Wagoneer, used but, they survived ME winters.🤔

 

As long as I remembered to park on level ground, to close the tailgate on Jeep. And. Locked the hood down with a chain and padlock. Times I miss that vehicle, license plate floors and all its little hiccups.

 

Still living up country.

Time for an early fire and sleep, one more day to oil.

Hi folks. Many of your old timers  will recall that my mom had a major stroke which has kept her in bed  since 2018.  She passed on to join her beloved parents, sister  and husband this morning about 6AM.  She did so with the help from hospice here in our mountain home.  I fetched her friend and companion from the nursing home forthe night's vigil.  I wish I did not feel so crummy.

Condolences on your mother, been there once too many times. It will take awhile but, she’s seeing friends again over the bridge.

Put it this way is I had won the billion $, I’d be on a beach elsewhere 🍺 ng, not sitting and awaiting another 16” of snow on Wednesday with no oil in my tanks. The winner hasn’t appeared as yet!

 

Re: Shrinkage doesn’t happen at the leg length, convinced it the straightness of the spine and top half. Come Summer might be tall again seriously considering metal rods to my spine for built in sled runners.Probably in Boston not in Maine🤔.

 

Had a Gunnyy friend do the same surgery and his Doc had bogus credentials, that remains to be seen.Consider all surgeries with research, etc.

The suggestion has been on the books since 1970?, it’s filed under when the pain outweighs the risks we’ll see.

 

Shoveled 16” of snow and cracked a few ribs, never shovel at night. Need to find oil fill before the next storm on Wednesday🤬.

 

Tires for snowblower are lost in FedEx or Ups land, replacements are Re-ordered came from flooded truck in South lands.I’m plowed in by pesky Mr. Plow guy.😡

 

Think that’s all the news that’s fit to type.

@Frozenoem  I also didn't win again! I have a friend that keeps telling me that I would have a better chance of winning if I would have a better chance of winning if I bought a ticket. HMMMMM!

I think we’re in the same boat, although I do have a winning number guaranteed by a nationally known psychic, that has too few digits.

 

Haven’t won since first MA lottery, woohoo $500. Never again.

Happy birthday and good luck to Diane. 🎂🍀

 

However, I'm doomed and not just on Friday the 13th.  OK, I do avoid breaking mirrors (because that's just too messy and a PITA to clean up), but avoiding black cats?  🐈🤣🐈 Not spilling any salt? 😄 Umbrellas?  (What? I'm supposed to wait until I'm IN the rain getting wet to open them?) 😁 Picking up money? I'm not picky about how it's facing and I generally call tails anyway in a coin toss. 🪙

 

But I guess I'm safe since I don't consider myself a paraskevidekatriaphobic. 🤞🤞(Now where did I put my rabbit's foot? 😉)

I would like to wish my sister Diane a happy birthday today! Why am I wishing her a Happy Birthday here? 

Well today is the 13th! 

So what does that mean to everyone that were born on a 13th of any month: 

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- We have some good and bad news for anyone who is superstitious. 

There are only two Friday the 13ths in 2023 and we are getting the first out of the way on Jan. 13. But many of you may be wondering when the second spooky Friday is. 

Well, we have some eerie news for you. 

 

The last Friday the 13th of 2023 is in the spookiest month of the year: October. This might not be a good sign for people who get creeped out by the day. 

Did you know there is a name for someone scared of Friday the 13th? 

The word for fear of Friday the 13th is a little difficult to say. It's called paraskevidekatriaphobia. 

For those of you who don't know, here are some things someone who is superstitious will avoid doing on Friday the 13th:

  • Avoid breaking any mirrors
  • Don't walk under any ladders or by any black cats
  • Don't open an umbrella indoors
  • Don't spill any salt
  • Don't pick up a penny facing down

Happy Birthday to all of you born on January 13!

@catwoman500 , too bad the Commanders' win didn't matter in the scheme of things, not even to the Eagles since they won their game, too.  Congratulations to Philadelphia for clinching top seed in the NFC!

Honored Social Butterfly

@APassionateLife , @LeeS6949 , if this had been spring or summer, no way I would have explored that property because of snakes (VA has copperheads and rattlers) and other critters.  Plus it would have been way too overgrown.  Already had to fight through some greenbriar.  Not to mention those pesky ticks and chiggers.  In fact, may not have even been able see the house from the road. 

 

Not that I like hiking in freezing cold weather, but winter is bushwhacking season -- the best time to explore off-trail.  When vegetation is dead, you would be amazed at how much "hidden" stuff you can see. 🥾

@MsStretch ...Congrats on the Commanders' win over the dreaded 🤠s! Nice tromp! 😸

No big weekend plans except for a CT scan tomorrow.

 

Did not find the logging camp last Tuesday, but did happen upon an abandoned house that was interesting to explore.  Driveway was chained but didn't see any 'No Trespassing' signs.  I have a white truck with orange cones in back (just for occasions like this 😁) and threw on a hi-vis vest that I just happened to have behind seat. Just trying to look "official".  However, we never... NEVER... disturb or take anything (other than photos).

Not recommended to enter old buildings like this *wink! wink!* unless you are very careful where you step at ALL times.----- Looks like a nice couch in its hey day. Note the lathe work on the wall.

@MsStretch ...Love how you are able to get back into your explorations! This is fascinating! I'd love to do that if I was more mobile. You seem to find so many interesting places. Freaky dead doll! Looks like one of those Barbie hair-do things. Yikes! 😲

(Friday 1/6/23 2:45pm EST) Love those pictures @MsStretch !!! You are SO BRAVE - me, scared of snakes since I was a child and my grandma took me at age 5 to see a HUGE boa constrictor. (Spelling off I am sure 🙄) It was BIGGER than me!!! 😱 To this day, I 👀 a snake, I will go 10 miles out of my way to avoid it/lol 🤣😂 Luv you, Nicole 🤎🤗

I'm with you on the snake thing. Cant stand them. I think its a leg thing. Any creature with more than 4 OR less than 2 legs I dont want anything to do with.

We will be going to our Granddaughter Edelins 10th Birthday party on Saturday. She likes bowling and loves pizza so we will be going to a place that has both.

Speaking of being tall and shrinking, I still wear a 36" inseam (and oh yes, they are very hard to find except for online), so my legs are not the culprit. 

 

Coffee doesn't keep me awake, but I do get a caffeine headache without it.

 

@APassionateLife , happy news your check-up went well.  And just for that, a few photos of the shed kitties.

@MsStretch ...Gorgeous furballs!

I was coming in the door from taking the trash out the other afternoon, and up runs this mostly white with a few patches of brown and gray kitty (teenager I presume). He/she came right up to the door as I closed it and meowed at me. Didn't notice a collar, but I told him/her that this wasn't their house. I closed the inside door and felt so guilty. Haven't seen it again since. Pretty sure it's not feral. We haven't had many roaming lately.  I'm thinking that is due to the foxes and other critters in the woods across the street. 😧
