Hello, Everyone ,

Happy 4th of July weekend!

@Frozenoem ...l also loved the photos of Chelli in the mask, and the thermostat quote from the other day. LOL.

@LaDolceVita ...sorry about your mailbox. That's scary. 

Very hot here today, and looks like we are in for a heat wave for the foreseeable future. UGH! But, it's July,  and it's Philly. 

Hope you all have a nice holiday weekend.

70* and comfy this Friday, had to look at calendar.

 

Physically went into stores yesterday, stocked up for second wave and bought real food.

 

Cancelled convenience of curbside pickup and overpaying.

All were masked in storeS and parking lots, barber, and radio shack,etc. No mask start to stepping.🤣

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

I remember you as Maxine, and others that have switched to FB or passed on to that forum elsewhere.

 

The mask photo was Chelli, my DutchShepherd presently in Va with her new owner, his wife and he both send update photos.

Re: Mailbox on rural route seems there’s 2 dates that are good for destruction Graduation and Independence Day, this year is total roll of dice.

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

@Frozenoem  Love the black shepherd pictures.   I had one move in with me in 1994 while I was on vacation.  I was way too fond of  her,  her name was Maxine.  It used to be my AARP name when I first joined  and got to know you (sort of).   I used to ask Mac  questions and you were kind enough to answer. There were lots of dropped off stray dogs here in the 90s.   Now the area is populated and that does not happen.

 

Someone vandalized my mailbox in the night and now I have to worry with that.  GRRRRR.   All is  well otherwise.  Happy 4th everyone.

Good morning to everyone on the Front Porch on this very sunny Friday morning in July, 2020! May everyone have a nice day with that pitcher of ice ice tea or lemonade in your refrigerator. We will be seeing temperatures in the mid 90's. Stay cool and be safe.

Thursday Morning 70*, sunny and I live, that’s it. Today rain and thunderstorms later, that nasty grass grew.

 

Ordered food on-line from Walmart and hated the experience, want to go to store in person Vs re-experience that. 

We’ve opened borders to Some other states, I’m concerned And feel a spike coming.👎🏻

 

@catwoman500 

 

Best guess, you tried a direct link to something with a copy/paste instead of using the hyperlink icon up next to picture , and inserting url in its box and description in the next.

 

I think I need coffee, that didn’t make any sense to me. Not to worry though I’ve been spoiler alerted a couple of times as well.

If picture worked above, then it came from hard drive of phone not from a website, and was posted using the picture icon.Then selecting Picture from my library.

 

Or AARP is making changes to website, and I don’t know.

69* and raining again with thunder in distance, honestly feel like I’m in rural FL after 4 days of heavy rain and some flooding.

 

Today I added again -
AARPCommunity@aarp.org to my email contact lists, and for the moment that’s working for AARP email not going to spam.

 

I say for the moment because politics and computer forum go to inbox, and front porch goes to spam.

 

Don’t have a clue what’s changed in AARP land and haven’t been on a computer lately.

 

As far as finding forums that part is easy, added a shortcut to my browser, that logs me directly into those forums, either into roll call or index of politics or computer/technology.👍

 

Still trying to deal with medical issues, and my hike in Mid July?

Hi , Porch Peeps,
Happy July.
Can't write too much...still on my phone for now. Tired already of eating soft food on one side of my mouth. At least there's no pain.
Have a fun day, and as always...stay safe.

Coffee and liberty for all!

Good morning to Everyone in Porchlandia!

WED JULY.jpg

It's 69 degrees here right now.  And of course, I have absolutely no intention of going to the beach.  But the pic looked so inviting and upbeat, I just had to post it here.  Maybe one day--in a far distant future.

 

Anyway, we have an expected high of 88 degrees later on today.  But right now the sunny blue skies and the more than pleasant temp is good enough for me.

 

I'm going to work out in the garage this morning and may even tackle some yard work.  We shall see.  Got to get my motor running and my gears in motion first.  Right now I feel like a 1948 Studebaker that's been sittin' on blocks quite a few years.  But I'm gonna get myself together and make it a good day!  Varooom!

 

Hope y'all doing good;  finding your peace and enjoying the blessed life we yet have.  You know, although I am mightily concerned about EVERYTHING going on around this country and the world, it is in the early morning hours--before the sun is fully up, before I turn on the noise from the television or radio, before I let the world into my world, when I find my greatest peace in solitude.  It's that time when I can pray, watch the early birds as they feed, think minor thoughts or no thoughts at all.  I can make and have my first cup of hot, creamy, sweet coffee--enjoying each sip after sip after sip.  Slow.

BBBBB.jpg

Having said all of that, I guess I best be getting to it.  Be blessed all.  And remember to be good to good ol' irreplaceable YOU!
