  1. How has everyone been.......sorry to hear about your Dog KayC........Got some surprising news on the home front from my oldest Grandson(military).....I'm going to be a Great Grand Father sometime in the spring.....Otherwise things are going good but the unseasonal rains....feels like West Coast years ago.....Caught granddaughters Rugby match and helped other one move two weeks ago(my sons did the heavy lifting)...it was family get together...rugby pics
  2. Well got back from my trans continental auto trip....What a great time except for the floods, cold, and now snow.......Visited people, relatives, step fathers, and some stops were definite "triggers", but brought smiles........Nice to be back to my "new Home".......May should bring summer because Spring still isn't here(30-40F)...Golfing Tuesday even if in snowshoes.....Cooking AlphaGetti for GrandKid now.....always a favorite...
  3. Welcome and sincerest regrets....You will be overwhelmed with tides of emotions next few months.....Remember to take care of yourself and I mean nutrition , sleep, and overall wellness...Grief takes a lot out of you without you knowing it...You sound like you have some good help and I wish coming to this site will help you through this long Journey......It sure helped me....
  4. The moving idea is working out for me......the new faces, surroundings, and environment in general, kickstarted my life again....I still have Grief 24/7 but also have a life trying restart....Those Hurricanes and the area where you moved to deserve a 10 year break....good luck
  5. Grief, depression and PTSD are more than sufficient labels we get slapped with. All of us here had our lives so drastically altered, there are no words to adequately describe it to the outsiders. ..............................(Gwen)..I saw or heard something that Grief is similar to Survivor Guilt....
  6. Just got back from a funeral , had to drive about 600 miles. .Buddy was 62 years old and developed kidney cancer....Entire system shut down in three days(heart, liver,lungs)....Hard working Farmer construction type and I'd say clean living(except for the Beers)...You never know what this life has in store for you, giving thanks for every sunrise.........
  7. Downsizing is so important or even un-cluttering on regular basis..........I did set some boundaries when it comes to pets after I moved ...My yard area has shrunk and I don't have the time to walk dogs like I used to......After my last Dog died I pledged that he was going to be my last....With that said a " Cat" has managed to move in for awhile and looks like its not leaving....My reduced size of living space still allows for grand kids to visit(bunk beds), two washrooms, and Fire Pit in backyard.......I'm still giving stuff away to the family(if they will take it)....Going to a Funeral tomorrow......
  8. I'm alive and doing well...appears weather will break finally....Went to my Legion Shuffle Board last night and finally won a game, lots of laughs for sure....Looking at directions on how to put Vinyl siding on my new shed........need some warmth.....Kids are on there way to Mexico, next year Yuma for me if health holds up.....Take care
  9. Ground Hog around here said early Spring(didn't see his shadow?)...But since New Years it has been Cold , record Cold in some places...On that note, Looking forward for some warm dry weather........Outside twice trying to rough in some shelving, less than an hour both times.....going to 32 F tomorrow...that's warm so good weather for shelving...have a good evening...
  10. Found a new way to embarrass myself, neighbors asked if I'd be interested in going to play Shuffel board ...I said yes, even though its been 40 years since I played.....I lost all three games I played but "won " the losers prize($4).....Lots of fun and met a whole bunch of new people....It's on my Tuesday schedule as a reoccurring event now...Still in deep freeze up here, another 10-12 days then its over.....below Zero for the high
  11. Valentines Day always is an excuse for an outing for me.......We were always great ones for the Holidays....St Pats day next(all excuses for Beer)
  12. Gwen I see the west coast is getting some unseasonable weather.......the coldest I have ever been was early January 1970 on West Coast ......In those days they were claiming next Ice age was coming....West coast (humidity) is the toughest of all Chills.....Read some of the Ferry's were cancelled.....
  13. Snow accumulations this time of the year....particularly in the mountains, can bring another spring of high water/flooding...The only benefit of biting cold is absence of snow...On that note ,two trucks at neighbors working on frozen water lines........I'm assisting friends frozen battery I think, broke piece of plastic already, everything is so brittle......Grandson's birthday on the weekend, it was -47 in Fort McMurray last week.....He was proud and boasted about no school for two days.....Stay warm and healthy
  14. KayC.......I think the weather Vortex or whatever they call it has peaked/worst is over...My friends from my old Town are getting pretty cool days as of late.....How much snow around your area and is this a normal year?
  15. Talk about the weather.......-39 with the Wind this morning, unbelievably refreshing......Super Bowl plans to be a bit muted....I respect weather conditions more and more over the years....Adding some more gas line anti freeze ....This cold will be with us up here for two weeks..Hope all is well for my Southern friends...
