I think I'm probably going to do the stem cell treatment. It will cost me $3800, but I can manage that, and it will be more than worth that if it helps. I'll have to see where I'm going to take the money from first.

I sure hope it helps, Cooter. You're having way too much constant pain.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Mornin’, folks. We’re back to hot and humid this morning, not unexpected. I think the rainy weekend will actually be more comfortable. I only hope the rains allow us to get in our walks.

Eva and her family are reunited. We all had a grand time while she was here. And you all have an open invitation to come over for pizza. Sandy does a great job with it and would enjoy meeting all of you. We have had the pleasure of meeting Cooter. So, come on down. 😎

I hope DD feels better, Cooter.

Re: The Rumpus Room


59 degrees and cloudy and windy. I shall read today while waiting for Season 4 of Nurse Jackie to come. Have you all seen Nurse Jackie? Edie Falco is an emergency room nurse who is a drug addict. She is also a round character. Nothing she does is what you expect her to do from episode to episode. Actually, you expect her to be nurturing to patients and to her children, and you expect her to be selfish and untrustworthy in her personal relationships. Ultraselfish and untrustworthy. As I said, round. The supporting actors are excellent, and the scripts are very good. I'm addicted.

Buon giorno!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's 81 and sunny here in Cooterville, headed for around 90 and clear. It's time for my yard guy to do the grass, so I don't need raid.

Thanks, Brick. She's feeling right poorly now but she's getting lots of rest, which will help. Supper was good and I think I may do some baked cod, broccoli, and maybe wild rice.

I'll see how the morning goes before I embark on any chores. It's early and I'm on my first coffee. I have to start some grits for breakfast for sure!

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all. We have 60F with clouds and a pretty good breeze, heading for a high of 65F and rain.

It's Friday, so I'll have the usual Friday night dinner with my kids.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Another hot day ahead, both in terms of the temperature and the busyness involved in getting ready to leave town for a couple of weeks.

Stay well, everyone!!

Belle is so interesting. I'm glad that we found each other. I had been posting some with her already elsewhere and I think that Shadow brought us [sign in to see URL].

Re: The Rumpus Room


I'm glad you've come to a decision, Cooter. I truly hope it will make ALL the difference!

*quickly packing to head to Brick's house* emoticon

Hope you'll have a great trip, Susie!

Addicted to a show about an addict, Belle? That sounds about right.... emoticon

Hope you'll have a great dinner tonight, Robbie.

2/3 of the way through my day.... Meals on Wheels are delivered, Mom's hair is done, and now I'm waiting for Brett's Aunt, who should be here in a few minutes. Then I have three whole days off! WOOHOO! emoticon

Re: The Rumpus Room


Morning, Rumpions:

52 degrees, wet, and totally calm. Camelot morning. The dark clouds I saw earlier are dispersing, and we're supposed to have SUN again today.

Have a good time on your trip, Susie.

I hope you had a good time with your kids last night, Robbie.

Lis, what are you going to do with yourself, with your three days off? (You'll think of something.)

Shadow DID bring us together, Cooter, bless her sweet heart!

While waiting for season 4 of Nurse Jackie to come today, I'll finish watching the first season of Justified. Did you all know that an Elmore Leonard story was the seed of that series? Leonard was a consultant on the set. I'm not sure whether he died before the series had finished filming. I'm batty about the villain, Boyd Crowder. Why are villains more interesting than protagonists? I think the fact that they usually are more interesting is one reason writers have put bad flaws in some protagonists, such as Nurse Jackie. I mean really bad flaws. You just know you would hate this person while loving her.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all. I have 50F under clearing skies -- mostly blue, a few clouds scattered about -- heading for a high of only 60F. It rained during the night, evidently, and probably well into the morning, but now it looks lovely.

My local yarn shop is having some kind of a "do" today, in which they're introducing a new supplier of hand-dyed yarns. I'll go take a look.

Apart from that, it looks like a quiet day.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Hola!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's 81 and partly sunny here with a slight chance of boomers. Normal.

Yay for Lis having 3 days off!

I'm glad The Miz had a nice evening which was, as usual, I'm sure. Those are lovely children.

Big day at the Yarn Shop!

It's too early for me to figure anything out. I know that Home Depot has hickory pellets on sale and I'm down to apple. I'll have to load up.

The arthritis in my right thumb has progressed some, and that sucks. It's not bad yet, so I can still mostly function.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Three days off! emoticon

I started by sleeping in past noon. Yes! The usual up-and-down and back-and-forth between the bed and the recliner, of course, but very restful sleep. emoticon

And I've just pulled my bean and bacon soup off the stove. Yummy comfort food soup.... emoticon

As for what I'll be doing.... Brett's Aunt has spent the last 14 years off and on writing a novel. She dropped it off yesterday and asked me to edit it. It's more than 700 pages (double-spaced), so it'll take some time. But it's easy work I can fit in around other things as they come up.

Belle, I'm not a fan of true villains, but I do like the Judge Judy types who get to say the things I wish *I* could say out loud! emoticon Living vicariously through them helps to get me through the day sometimes, LOL....

Robbie, how are hand-dyed yarns different from the commercially-dyed (not sure what term to use) yarns? Hope you like what you see. emoticon

Cooter, we've got off-and-on thunderstorms going on here, too. We need rain badly. The yards are brown like August -- it's been a couple of weeks since Brett mowed and the yard still looks newly cut. Enjoy your hickory pellets!

That's a really good question, Lis, and I'm not sure I can give an adequate answer. In general, commercially-died yarns need to appeal to a whole lot of people in order to sell them to a whole lot of people.

Hand-dyed yarns are very limited in production. The colors tend to be far more imaginative and interesting, but to a more limited number of people. And that's OK because the dyer doesn't intend to have world-wide sales of those yarns. The only comparison I can think of is Wonder Bread versus an artisanal bread made at a local bakery.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Had a nice, long phone call from Andrew. He got to meet the candidate today, and then spent two hours canvassing neighborhoods with her. He is VERY impressed with her. He says she is the most down-to-earth political candidate he has ever met. Absolutely wonderful. And the campaign staff has been fantastic to work with! Because his work goes into the evenings, they're telling him to not even come into the office until noon -- and then stop by 8:00. He has regular days off, something they know he DIDN'T have in his last job. He said he counted a total of nine days off in the eight months he worked the last job. He says the staff is far more laid back and their office is a professional office -- not a literal hole-in-the-wall office WITHIN a completely unrelated office where he last worked. He sounds SO relaxed and happy.... Makes Mama happy, too. emoticon

Hooray for Andrew's new job! I suspect he appreciates it more, given his prior experience.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Happy for Andrew. I can't believe he had what amounted to one day off per month.

Lis - I think hand dyed yarn involves dying on a small scale, whereas the big manufacturers have huge dyelots. Also, the hand dyed yarns are typically done by small cottage industries, someone dying yarn in their basement or garage. Much smaller dyelots. My experience is that with hand dyed yarn, it is often impossible to get enough for a large project such as a sweater. There is just enough difference in the dyelots so that it's noticeable if you use them in oneproject.

I'm trying to start a new knitting project, a wrap. The pattern calls for "Italian cast on." You think this experienced knitter can get it right!?!? Grrr.

I've never heard of an Italian cast on. What difference could it make?
