I might be willing to sell you mine if you have cash-cash.

I'll check, but I think Mrs. Buckeye spent all the good stuff.

Would a black card suffice:)

The Manchester Union leader is reporting that VZ (I'm not spelling his name) waived arraignment and through his lawyer pleaded not guilty. He allegedly crossed a double line while driving erratically. He listed his address as the Coos County (NH) jail.
I'll wait for Howie Carr's show for "the rest of the story" because he has good sources.

Marlene, did you hear about LePage's new summer job? He signed on a McSeagull's restaurant as a bartender. Nice to see a former politician going back to work instead of becoming a lobbyist for a change.

Thanks amom, it's such a controversial subject that I left it on the end of that thread after I realized there was a new one.

Lyle, here's how I hang my feeders. I have another station a few feet from this one and when the ants find the feeder, I switch to the other one. Please forgive the condition of the deck, I'm waiting until all this pollen blows over to stain again.

My mom seems to be depressed and wants to spend hours every day with my dad. It's not healthy and gi doctor yesterday following an endoscopy put her on a 2nd anti-depressant. Any advice from relevant experience would be appreciated.

You can't medicate grief away.
And a GI doc has NO BUSINESS whatsoever writing psychotropic drugs for a geriatric patient! Those things are associated with a huge increase rate of depression.

What's wrong with her spending time with your dad? She loves him. He's the father of her children. Let her be. She'll get more comfortable with where he is, and will start spending more time on her own as she trusts those now caring for him.
Her entire recent life has revolved around her care of him for the past decade---she's become unemployed, as well as lost her spouse.

MissMarple2

I was first in London when my son was a baby, back in 1969. Stayed in a cheap hotel and tromped around seeing the landmarks for 3 days.

I didn't return until the 1990's, when I stayed at the London Hilton while my husband went to business meetings. I walked around by myself and found myself in a square near Kensington Palace where the entire square was full of Arab men in groups, leaning up against cars. It got real quiet when I walked through.

Scared me to death, and I realized things had changed. Not nearly as bad as I read about now, but it was definitely alarming.

Marlene

Yes,Dave. His wife is waiting tables. He was on Howie's show last week and told Howie he's having fun.

I had a client that moved into the same facility with her similarly impaired husband, for a month. Moved out when she saw how well he was being treated by pros.

Think about that as an option. They've been together a long time. Changing that quickly isn't easy.

Great pic, Rocco. But I’d suggest you do something about the condition of your deck. 😬

Another Bob,

The local late afternoon guys (Hammer and Nigel) here on the local talk radio channel organized a debate viewing party and they are hoping Trump live tweets, as they have set up a big screen to show it to the audience if he does so.

It has sold out! I guess people want to get together for mockery!

Acting head of Customs and Border Protection John Sanders resigns as agency contends with surge of Central American families at U.S. border

rse

A'mom-

I have been leaving her alone and recognize the grief. Unfortunately, my sister did not and started pushing her. I had taken her food as she has lost 13 pounds in the last two months.

I went yesterday for his lunch and rest period while she was at doctor. Sat next to a man whose alzheimer's manifests itself in restlessness. He wants to keep walking. My dad was sitting in his favorite chair back in the room and commented on the people walking outside including that man. Heard the man keeled over walking after dinner and made no attempt to catch himself, which apparently indicates a massive mi or stroke event. Gashed head badly.

Mom and dad did not see it as they were in the room, but I suspect some of the affect I saw this morning was a delayed reaction to that event.

That’s how I put myself through college, Buckeye.

Rocco

Lol...been working hard on the lawn, but my cheap Scotts spreader with it's stupid edge guard is leaving stripes on my lawn. It appears that not only does the spreader have an edge guard, it has a rear guard to prevent fertilizer from spraying your feet. Even with the edge guard off, the fertilizer hits the rear guard and falls directly underneath the spreader causing the stripes. It's Milorganite time damn it!

Thanks Mel, bookmarked! That yellow pollen is all over everything right now but I'll be cleaning and staining soon.

Buckeye

Rocco, you sound as passionate as Mrs. Buckeye about the lawn.

Now that we have an army of Central Americans to worry about the landscape, she is pouring her efforts in her veggie garden.

I am sure I will have the best $100 tomatoes in central Ahia:)

RSE:
Just a suggestion.
Grand-daughters seem to cheer up their grandmothers.
Perhaps one of the girls could do her nails, maybe take her out to lunch.
Read to her or listen to recorded books.
Perhaps get out old photographs or plan a new album of current pictures.
I would spend Saturday evenings with my mother-in -law and Tuesday and Thursdays with my mom.
Just watching a tv program together is helpful.My daughter would sometimes come along and that made a big difference to both her grandmothers. Prayers continue for you and your family.

MissMarple2

Melinda,

I wonder if he was also the one who orchestrated the finger-pointing for leaking at the acting secretary.

Rocco

Buckeye, but they're grown with love and you can't put a price tag on love.

Yes, I am passionate about my lawn. A couple of weeks ago a minor medical procedure kept me from mowing so my wife volunteered. I couldn't help but yell at her as she walked by the window, "Put Some Ass Into It Honey!"

Sex with a trans means inserting your penis into a surgical wound. Um, no.

Was it you who described the fake vagina as being the man's penis split open or something?

Glad I'm semi-fasting today.

Posted by: Jane D'oh/i]

Yeah. I've read medical journals - -with pictures -- describing for surgeons that process of how to do a male-to-femal sex change operation.

It is beyond horrifying, beyond hair-raising, and the end result is frankly repulsive in the extreme. It's hard to imagine anything even MORE repulsive other than maybe some science-fiction special-effects fantasy.

This is why I accused Sleepy Jeff of being a worthless malingerer for not doing more to root out deep state operatives in the DOJ beyond a few splashy firings at the top.
