@Anonymous Just chores for me. I try to do outings during the week as there are less crowds. lots of folks come to the mountains for the weekends so locals stay out of the way. At least this local does.
Weekday outings were a walk in Veterans Memorial Park and a visit to the city cemetery. It's on top of a big hill overlooking downtown and I have friends buried there. And I made the unavoidable trip to Walmart. 😑
15-days of rain with 2-3 more coming, no cookouts planned but, summer is planned in 3 more days when sunshine hits with temps of 80’s.
Definitely climate change , can’t decide what fly to cast in the lakes.Even the skeeters are doing back strokes. I’m dreaming of land locked Salmon.
No comment on my sleeping habits, I was clothed when I left the house, cranky but clothed with no coffee or food.
@LaDolceVita ...I agree. Love to get my errands done during the week so the "worker bees" can run all over the place on the weekends. Only one I still do is the grocery shopping on Sunday AM. Can't change that...too many "friends" to chat with as there are a load of regular Sunday shoppers who come at the same time every week, so we chat. Some of the employees even say we should request a table and chair be set up so we can all have a gab fest. 😸
Unfortunately, I have to do a CVS run tomorrow as I had to wait for a delivery today and the weather was a bit scary...thunderstorms and tornado warnings. The worst seems to be gone now, so 🤞.
You all take care!
Tomorrow (Tuesday) appointment with my local LOA to sign up for the DREADED Medicare. My OLD doctor and dentist DOES NOT accept it! 😭😭😭 I turn 65 THIS September!
Wednesday, yes that WEEKLY "out of food" run to Walmart.
Thinking of you,
Please note that I'm just about the only person that comments on many of the other topics here on the Front Porch.
Do you have a favorite lighthouse?

Have a great evening.
Favorite light house would be in Rockland , ME
Coffee for the moment is DD French Vanilla followed by 207 Dark Roast, both black with no cream or sugar. Followed by Pilon Expresso Cuban style aka Cafe con Leche.

Well good news then if medically necessary Medicare approves transportation by limo/livery or van - to and from medical offices.
Check with your LOA or VA.
Really useful if you pass 8 moose on your 2 hour ride to doctors, and are barely conscious during that ride at 5:30 am.
Limo’s and livery service are overrated.
@Frozenoem I picture you as barely conscious in the back of a sedan at 5:30AM, wearing pajamas. Or perhaps you dressed thenright before and just shuffled out to the vehicle? Am I over thinking or imagining this? I guess I'll stop now😂. Yeah, I'm in a good mood for a change.
You got me good @LaDolceVita !!! When I got the AARP email with just your text, CURIOUSITY (spelling 🙄) got the best of me. Had to RUSH to the site to SEE what was going on./lol 🤣😂 Gave you a KUDO, luv this 🤣😂🤣😂
The air is noticeably clearer today. We have been downgraded to Code Yellow. There were no extended walkabouts with the furkids🐈yesterday (except for necessary pee breaks).
@Anonymous , it is wildfire season. Wildfires are burning longer and hotter because of human-accelerated climate change.
On climate change helping to spread or start the fires, last year some parts of Canada hit 120* , about the same temp as Death Valley.
Making forests and plains a tinderbox. One of the fires was sparked by lightning, another by sparks from train, cigarette butt out a window, and the rest are still under investigation.
Of 13 Provinces there are 6 with fires, due to climate change, abnormally low snow totals or rain.
And I think some have been burning for last 6 weeks, burning millions of acres.
With hotter temperatures comes more lightning strikes and dryer grasses or trees. One of many reasons for US to send assistance in fighting the fires, we do have a pretty long border with Canada.
And I wouldn’t be surprised to see MX sending aid, at some point.
Now it’s off to clean house May have visitors in form of cousins from NS or Quebec coming next week if it gets to smoky for them or they need to evacuate.
We are looking at the possibility of some meaningful amounts of rain over this weekend. This will be a very helpful rain when it comes to the growth of many crops like sweetcorn, field corn and peas.
Wheat and hay are important when it comes to our dairy cattle.
Hoping everyone has a restful weekend.
Remember our troops stationed over sea's.
