Yes Autumn/Fall! Awesome!!!
Summers here start off nice but we get way too much heat and humidity. The kind where you can fry an egg on the sidewalk. Not that I've ever tried, but...
Spring is really lovely when flowers and green grass appear and the trees are dressed in green splendor. It's usually cold or pretty chilly and then wham! We go right into it being too hot too soon.

I enjoy parts of Winter, but it lasts sooo long, pain is more intense for me and it's so grey and dreary. So yes...Autumn!

Fall is awesome, winter even better. Spring is just messy from the melting snow and summer is the worst!


Wow 😳... you like our winters ? It is my least favourite season here. Cleaning your car off , and starting it in bone chilling weather.. to drive on ice , is not my idea of a good time. It’s hard for me to do long grocery shopping trips because of my back problems, so it’s difficult to stock up properly, to avoid going out.

Nah, Don’t care for it at all. If I could get things delivered, it may be a different story.

Without going into too much detail, the heat messes with my digestive tract, no matter how much water I drink. Also, I find it's way easier to warm up than it is to cool down. For me anyhow.

Our falls are to quick... not like the middle eastern or western states. Our halloweens are cold here, often with snow. Not great trick or treating weather. Though some years are better than others . September is beautiful. Wish my birthday was in September.

Diarrhoea or constipation? Enquiring minds want to know. I agree with temperature assessment, heat is easier to gain than to lose. Dutch "bacon" is awful. It smells like bleach when you open the package, literally. It's not bacon but it tastes kinda bacony...

The heat makes everything go through me at break neck speed. What kinds of bacon do you have access to? All I ever see is the standard "American" bacon and the thicker cut "Canadian" bacon. The Dutch stuff sounds terrible.

I can't believe it's almost September...we've had a scorching hot summer.
I'm hoping we get a nice Autumn and don't just go straight into winter. The last few years it's been either too hot or too cold.
(Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy now, lol...?)



You, old? I thought you were just 22. Oh wait. That is in Canadian years not US,

To tell you more about my dad's driving skills (or lack of such) on our trip to the Social Security hearing yesterday:

We left before sunrise as the destination is 46 miles away and I needed to be there by 8:00

My lawyer

Dad has a strange driving technique.

He only used his right had to drive with for some unknown reason. This means that driving in a straight line just isn't going to happen.

This is in part due to a nervous condition he has in which he lets go of the steering wheel and slaps his tummy 2-3 every few minutes meaning he is not holding on to the steering wheel.

So we take off in the dark during a mild thunderstorm at that. One we pull out onto a main thoroughfare from our subdivision he hydroplanes on a patch of water on the street. You can see where this long trip is taking my already fried nerves as I didn't sleep any the night before.


With him driving all over the lane he is in and a few times outside of it I was in need of some medication that I didn't have of course. At one point on the freeway he reached over to adjust the air conditioner or something and drifted in the left lane almost hitting a car that was there.

His idea of the shortest way to get to my hearing included a long drive on one of the worlds bumpiest streets. It would have made a lot more sense to use the tollway but he doesn't like driving on "a racetrack" as he calls it.

We made it in once piece on time to the hearing and I thought that the hearing went well. (A guy can hope for the best can't he?).

What I'm waiting on now is the judge is requesting medical records from my first two hearing that my current lawyer did not have with her. The judge is giving her two weeks to get this information before she makes her decision on my qualifications for Social Security.

As the government does it's best to take it's time in doing anything and informing you of the outcome via snailmail I guess it will be at least a month from now until I get the news.

Keep the happy thoughts going.

In the meantime I have an appointment with my regular MD on Tuesday to refer me to a new cardiologist. Hopefully it is the one that I have already made an appointment with as I know the accept my insurance. Other than that I'm taking each day as it comes while making alternate transportation arrangements to avoid being in a car with dad. I'm also waiting for the 21 Sept. to get here so I can have this cast finally taken off of my leg.

So sleepy and no energy. Gah!

I'll try to partipate later when I'm more alive.

Had a nice nap this afternoon ( hopefully will still sleep tonight, but really needed the sleep)

Went out for supper with a friend ( her treat ) .. and I had their steak and shrimp special. I ordered it med rare, and it was done ok... just tasted a bit like liver. 🤨. The consistency of the steak was off too, too smooth. Sort of how liver is.

Do they squash some beef together now.. and make steaks out of other meat types ? Looked like steak on the outside but not the inside. 😒

Anyhoo, the shrimp was good and so was everything else, as well as the company ( waves to friend if she reads this ) ...we talked about ATS and she said she was interested in checking it out, especially the Shed.

Your road trip to your appointment sounded like a comedy scene, though it was probably nerve racking to the extreme in real life.
Really happy to read you are steadily progressing forward on all the issues you are dealing with. Like Night said, I think they owe you back pay, because they screwed up. That would give you some cash for a vehicle, and some money for new digs. We can only hope and pray.

I told you not to kiss me, now you have it too. LOL! Kidding of course.
I don't feel sick, but sure am fatigued and been that way all day and night.

Hope we both have energy tomorrow and feel better. How are the girls and Mom?
