Hi @LaDolceVita

 

That’s great news that “Another trumpet vine has shown up!” 👍🌱 YEA!

I had to chuckle at the thought of “The third I am afraid has been dug u and not properly replanted by the furry ones.” LOL!😄

So....You mean 🐶 doggies 🐕 know how to dig up...but just haven’t gotten around to the planting properly part yet! HAHAA 🤣

....might have to ‘up’ the security around the last one... so it hopefully survives...& of course....thrives!!

As always, ...Stay safe....&...Take care!

Just a handy-dandy hint.  If you use the Reply▽ option beneath a certain post, your reply will appear below that particular post, which makes it seem out of whack.  If you use the Reply to the topic... option at the bottom, it will fall in line with the whole thread (with newest posts at top or bottom depending on your settings).

@MsStretch  I had no idea either. I'll have to try that "Reply to topic" button once I try to catch up!

Hi @MsStretch !  

Thanks for the heads up....

Since I’m not ...as they say..... “tech savvy”....(nor that smart anyway....LOL!) if we are trying to post to a specific PorchPeep...like I am here to you....the ‘tag’ is supposed to notify you, or like some get emails **(I only get a few seemingly random notifications)  & since some peeps can only come here once or twice a week,... replies may take a while) & then it does seem to get ‘lost’ in the shuffle over time....

However... if we are trying to post to a specific PorchPeep, but we post a “Reply to the topic”... then how would an ‘esteemed member’ know to look for it? ....such as yourself....or @LaDolceVita @catwoman500 Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT & Lee @LeeS4949 (& others of course) and Froze! @Frozenoem [Well...I hope he’s OK ...(if someone’s talked to, or with  him, be it a chat, a PM or phone call & could let us know, it would be a great relief!) ) & I do miss his wit & wisdom....]

(Also ...it’s always easy to post a message to Dave @DaveMcK ...as he has posts almost every day)

Anyway,....Thanks for the ‘handy-dandy hint’ info & trying to help!

Hope you, your FAM, & your adopted FURKIDS...are enjoying the nicer weather!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!

As always...Stay safe....&...Take care!

@Therapist4u ...Yes, thanks to @MsStretch for the hint. And thanks to you for your good thoughts. Like you I hardly ever get a notice that something has been posted. Just so happens 3 came in this weekend. Lots of catching up to do on my end.

Hi @catwoman500

What a few of the good PORCH PEEPS here are finding is that without those notifications it can be difficult to find or follow replies to the messages posted to  us. And like in this post I made to Nicole  https://community.aarp.org/t5/Our-Front-Porch/MORNING-ROLL-CALL-2024/m-p/2557285#M85009  

 

So I’m really glad to see your post here!  Also THANKS for your kind message to me .....about the good thoughts!🙂

 

I appreciate all y’all! ....and am sending good thoughts your way!🤗

As always, ...Stay safe....&...Take care!

@catwoman500   Clematis looks pretty.  We managed to get one trumpet vine out of three, but it is now growing in a pot.  Hopefully it will take off.

@Therapist4u   I still get an email if my name is mentioned in a post.  Not true for you?

 

No posts from Nicole?  APB for Nicole, where are you?  I know you are still reading and watching PBS 🙂.

Hi @LaDolceVita I’m glad that some of y’all do get notifications from AARP about posts....Unfortunately,  I hardly get any messages about y’all...except random ones...like I’m notified of being mentioned, or received a kudo ...once for every 10...while the other 9 I don’t,

& yet I’ve never changed my settings....

always have it set  to receive EVERYTHING!

That happens even tho you or others,

had ‘tagged’ me...

Oh well....itsuxbutwhatcanIdo?!?

Lately I’ve been searching my FAV PORCH PEEPS recent posts on AARP every few days... & that’s how I saw your last ones...so I just replied to both today!

Anyway....I hope you & Hubbie...

& all FAM are doing well...

Please have a wonderful week too!

 

BTW: hope that  Ginger’s doing well....

after the small tumor was removed!

Take care!

Hey, @LaDolceVita ... if the trumpet vine isn't working you might want to look into clematis. 😺

Tens of thousands without power, schools canceled after storms

Tornadoes reported west of Wausau, Wisconsin on Tuesday night, leaving widespread damage.

May 21st Storm Damage 

Here are a few images from the storm damage in the Madison, Wis area. Nowhere near the carnage of Iowa, so we got very lucky. Forty some thousand where without power. It could take days to restore power to the west side of the metro area.

@Therapist4u , sorry I've been lax on catching up.  Belated thanks for the Mom's Day greeting even though I'm not a mother (unless you count the adopted furkids 😉). 

 

@LaDolceVita , l♡ved the picture of Janie and Tiggy.

 

@Frozenoem , take care of yourself.

 

Everyone, stay 🆒.  Summer is just beginning.

I am stepping away from The Front Porch AARP FORUM and can be reached via PM or in my discussions in other forums.

 

I know my ladies wonder when I do a MIA and posting this so you know.

 

@LaDolceVita , @MsStretch and @catwoman500 it has been TOTALLY AWESOME chatting with you.  🤗🤗🤗

 

Dolce - I know you will stop by when you can to chat with us in my Book & TV discussions in the Leisure & Lifestyle AARP FORUM. We really enjoy chatting with you!!!  💃💃💃

 

@Therapist4u , we will see each other at some point in my Grief & Loss AARP FORUM discussions. In fact MC just left you a really sweet note. Yes, we luv your visits.  💃💃💃

 

@Frozenoem , gosh BIG BRO - I will miss you and hang in there please!!! As we age, those Old Folks Issues kick in.  🤗🤗🤗

 

Take Care,

Nicole  👵

@SummerIsTooHOT   You make me laugh.  BTW, the sauna is rather hellish in this weather.  @Rebecca2004   I too am in Ga.  @Therapist4u   Will look for your posts, I just cannot seem to get caught up.

 

 Hubby diagnosed with sleep apnea.   Ginger, 11 year old dog had small tumor removed, not cancer so all is well.  @MsStretch  Good to know you are doing well.  OK , now going back to reading emails & posts I am behind on.

Hi again @LaDolceVita So... AFAWill look for your posts, I just cannot seem to get caught up.” As previously mentioned it’s still hard to find & follow posts here....even tho you had ‘tagged’ me...I still got NO notice...I just happened to search all recent post on AARP... & lo & behold I saw yours! Nicole had a suggestion, & I...have no clue. I DEF DUNNO! HA!  Maybe Dave can conjure up some thread just for us “frequent Porch Peeps” to FIND & follow posts better & comment to each other there when we can, as some aren’t able to come here but once or twice a week...

Anyhoot....MOST IMPORTANTLY.... Good to know Ginger’s small tumor was removed, & >>>>>not cancer!!! AFA HUBBIE....I’ve had sleep apnea before...but rejected one treatment that would have made me wear a tight mask every night ...with a machine & tubes & whatnot that had to be frequently cleaned...& if you have to go to the bathroom more than once at night, each time the contraption had to be carefully detached & then reattached....it can detect if ya ain’t wearing all the stuff ...as it monitors everything you do...too much crapola for me! That said, if it got more serious, I’d have to reconsider the pro & cons again....

Anyway, ....each case is different, so I’d like to hear what Hubbies Docs are suggesting.

 

BTW: I’M “competing with hubbie, furbabies, chickens, garden, sauna...” >>>>AND NICOLE...LOL!! 😄

 

Hope you & your FAM are doing well!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND to Y’ALL!!

As always...Stay safe....&...Take care!

 Hi Nicole!

@SummerIsTooHOT

 

What’s happening is that some of my FAV PORCH PEEPS, besides you & Dave @DaveMcK, are not seeing my replies to the messages they posted to  me. For example, I wished a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY on 05-11-2024 and 05-10-2024 to @catwoman500 @MsStretch  and @LaDolceVita & don’t know if any of them saw my messages.

 

like in these links: to @LaDolceVita https://community.aarp.org/t5/Our-Front-Porch/MORNING-ROLL-CALL-2024/m-p/2555911#M84978

to @catwoman500 https://community.aarp.org/t5/Our-Front-Porch/MORNING-ROLL-CALL-2024/m-p/2555914#M84979

and @MsStretch  https://community.aarp.org/t5/Our-Front-Porch/MORNING-ROLL-CALL-2024/m-p/2555915#M84980

 

so if they happen to see this, I’ll say again:

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO YOU!

Hope you’re all doing well! Please have a wonderful week too!

Stay safe....&...Take care!

☮️  🌄  ~Allen 🌈  🎨

 

Also where am I supposed to start a new post within the PORCH, for peeps to see & comment if they wanted to, like to share my new flowers?

 MY NEW FLOWERSMY NEW FLOWERS

 

Anyhoot.... we’ll talk again later

my 4EVAH FRIEND!

Good morning to all of you FRONT PORCHERS out there! Do you have plans for a Summer vacation yet?

We will be returning to our timeshare at Lake Geneva over Labor Day weekend. Our family will be able to swim, golf, bike and walk.

We are due to have another boat tour of the lake again. 

We fix most of our meals with everyone taking turns.
