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.

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!

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.

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!

Tuesday afternoon, I’ll leave it at that, after 4 hours on the road and many, many colorful phrases.🤬

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

If you use gmail or yahoo, keep marking AARP as clean, and moving to inbox.

 

A regular email address same thing keep marking it as non-spam, eventually it will return to normal😎.

 

Eventually it gets the idea, and it doesn’t go to spam. Success! Just received my first AARP notice in inbox after a month of spam and retraining.

 

Ask tomorrow whether inbox still knows spam from email. This morning 6 msgs went to spam, now have 2 in inbox, without my touching or moving them.

 

@MsStretch 

 

Really had hoped your feral was hiding from noise or fireworks, like some here.

Hi, all,

Just as I was starting to receive notices,  now I can't get to the community forums on my computer again. ARRRGH! The old "request entity too large." message. 

Wanted to tell you all about my tooth extraction and implant on Monday,  but it's too long to type with 2 fingers on this silly phone. Maybe I can get back in a couple of days????

You all take care.

Another month already?!  They're still blending together, albeit getting much warmer than when this odyssey began.  I had sort of hoped, but didn't allow myself to get overly optimistic, that we would be further along.  Today, Virginia goes into Phase 3.  Patience.  Add a big dose of common sense to that.

 

July marks my return to the dentist that has been postponed since March.  I'm thinking this month is the charm.

 

@LaDolceVita  and @LydiaN586309 , same with my notifications.  Now it is just an autoreaction to check the Junk.

 

Still keeping the porch light burning for my missing furkid.  🙏  Alas.

Good morning, Peepers!

clock.jpg

Time to rise and shine...at least until it's time for me to go down for my nap! Smile.

 

Now, I've already had my first cup of coffee for this morning. And yet, I'm am still quite blurry of thought and sloo-of-foot.  So maybe another cup is in order.  After while!

 

@LaDolceVita, my AARP community forum notifications have been going to my spam folder as well for some months now.  I just don't worry about it as long as I'm getting the notices.  I just know I have to check my spam throughout the day to keep up.  So I'm good.

 

It's already hot here as well.  But I opened my windows early this morning and cooled down the house before the temps started rising.  So right now, it's pleasant inside and well under the fans, it's actually cool.  If it gets super hot or humid, thank God there's always air conditioning as my backup!

 

One wonderful benefit to airing the house out what with the windows open, is the natural air freshener provider by my beautiful lilac bushes in the front and back.  The fragrance of fresh lilac is wafting through my house right now and it is "marvelous!"  And also I have the lovely songs of the various birds gracing my feeders and yard. Their chitter, chatter, tweets, and songs are a joy to hear.  Peace.

 

JUNE3.jpg

So as we leave the month of June, all I can think of is how much we all have yet to be thankful for.  I, for one, am thankful just to be able to be healthy enough and have presence of mind enough to thank God for being yet alive!  I am thankful for every breath I take and that I was able to open my eyes this morning.  I'm thankful that in spite of all of the turmoil going on in the world, I yet and still have a place that's comfortable and sufficient for me to live and be.  Thankful for a few good friends and loved ones who help keep me buoyed and encouraged.  Grateful for Our Front Porch group where we can share just a little bit of our day/world with each other.  Thanks @DaveMcK for maintaining this forum for us all. 

 

Anyway, I guess that's about it for me for now.  Please everybody, continue to stay safe, be wise, and keep healthy.  Enjoy the day!

 

Lydia

Hi folks, all of my notifications are  going to the spam box in spite of my repeated corrections.   Hot and miserable here  and looks like more of the same coming our way.   We had a lovely June so I will try not to complain.
