Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning, all, and happy Flag Day. We have 54F with clouds and very light sprinkles, heading for clearing skies and 65F.

I need a Costco run today. I also have a haircut scheduled for this afternoon, and my stylist has talked me in to coloring it with a shade lighter than my natural dark brown. I gather this is to cover the gray. I'm a little apprehensive.

Hope the fridge stuff goes well, Cooter.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Put some red and blue streaks in it, Miz. Join the younger generations!

I'm weary. I tried to nap but it wasn't happening, so I showered and got my errand clothes on. The kitchen, laundry room, and dining room are an absolute wreck and dirty. Kim will come Tuesday, thank goodness.

I was going to cook for myself tonight, but the fridge will be in the middle of the kitchen floor and probably in the way. It may be a Marie's night.

Gas is about $[sign in to see URL] here if my memory is correct.

I'm having one of those "old man" days. I'm having to watch it because I just don't feel with it, and don't need to be doing too much. I'm helping DD as much as possible, but she's going to have to do the bulk of the cleaning behind the fridge.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Hello, all. Today was a little less muggy and I took advantage by doing the yards. I’m a bit worn out, but, thankfully, really no worse for the wear. Truthfully, I’m thrilled to be able to do it.

I’ll have a Gold Margarita, please, Ramundo. I’m just in the mood for a cocktail. Some chips and salsa would be nice. Thanks.

Re: The Rumpus Room


We're hanging right around $[sign in to see URL] a gallon, Robbie. Part of it is Iran; part of it is OPEC production cuts. In Indiana, part is from a 10-cent-per-gallon tax increase from our REPUBLICAN Legislature and Governor.

I hope you'll like your new color, Robbie. I keep saying I'm going to put purple UNDER my hair -- so that it only flashes if I turn my head. Gotta build the courage. Meanwhile, I've got light brown with blonde and red highlights. Going tomorrow to get it refreshed.

Hope DD was able to get the area behind the refrigerator cleaned out for you, Cooter. The young'uns have to do something to earn their keep! emoticon

I paid $[sign in to see URL] today. That’s on the low side of the small price spread in this area.

New hair color is a trip! It's much like when I lived in Hawaii, and got sun-bleached auburn highlights. I like it!

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning everyone.
Our glorious spring weather (a month of near continuous warm sunshine is unprecedented) has come to an end as the jet steam has moved from where it pulled up our weather from the European mainland to a position where we get the USA's cast-offs. On the subject of hair colour, I have to observe what colour? mine went from a mucky blond shade to pure white around the time became 'officially old'. I have few regrets for that transformation but I do miss my 'reddish?' coloured beard. Regarding Gas price we too are feeling the impact of various factors affecting this but after a few references to Google convert I have arrived at a comparative price for over here. We are paying £[sign in to see URL] a litre which translates as £[sign in to see URL] a US gallon. Although price increases always hurt, I suspect that this one hurts you rather more than it does us as we live in relatively tiny compact island.

Go for it, Lis!

DD isn't leaving until the morning, and she'll do the cleaning. I sent her out to pick up supper from a local deli that's really good.

That sounds really good, Brick.

Good to hear from you, Joe. My hair has some light tinges in it, but still has a lot of color.

Buenos dias!


Coffee, Tanya.

It's already 82 and clear, headed for eighty-nine. I'm surprised that it's this warm already.

The new fridge will come this morning. DD did a masterful job cleaning where the old one was. I couldn't have done it. She's going to drive up for her doctor's appointment and drive by to help get stuff set up. I told her she could spend some time with her Mom, but she wants to help her Dad.

Now I've got to figure out [sign in to see URL]. If the leftover steak is still good, I'll do the potatoes, onions, peppers, steak and stuff.

Good morning, all. We have 52F with white clouds sprinkled about, heading for a high of 68F. Today is the day we transition out of the cooler, wetter days into warmer, dryer days. Next week may be in the 80s.

Cooter, I'm glad DD was able to get everything clean and ready for your new refrigerator. It will be fun setting up the new one.

I have Friday night dinner with my kids tonight. Nothing else is on my agenda.

Coffee, please, Tanya.

Re: The Rumpus Room


Good morning everyone. Well i am in the final stages of packong for our trip home. And i guess i can justify calling it home, as Beck is applying the pressuere to get on the road. As it stands now, we will leave early Monday morningn for Chicago. Catch an evening flight from Chicago to Munich. Short layover in Munich followed by a liesurely flight into Triestekm drive up to Duino-Aurisina. Then the jet lag sets in. And will most likely last until Beck and I c ome back to Iowa in the fall for a month or so.

Beautiful day here on the prairie. 74 degrees, sunny, with a light breeze. Basically the same in Trieste. A degree or two warmer. But still very tolerable.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the Donkey. I just watched a news clip of Jeff Sessions quoting from St. Paul’s epistle to the Romans, as his defense of the travesty going on with seperation of the children at the border. And then watched that idiotic Sarak Huckabee Sanders get testy and almost lose her cool as she tried to defend Sessions at her daily press briefing. Gawd deliver us all from this madness

Hair colour? I had sandy blonde hair with a pale hint of red until i hit 45 or so and everything turned an off-white. And is now thining fast and futious.

Have a great day everybody.

Hi, Hawk! You're metamorphizing into a literal hawk, flying back and forth from one country to another as a way of life. You'll get to know all the flight attendants and hear about their boyfriends and girlfriends and children.

Hi, Hawk! So glad you've had a good stay here. That Trieste feels like home is a good indication that it's the right move for you and your family. emoticon

Enjoy that new refrigerator, Cooter!

And have a great dinner, Robbie. So cool that you have weekly dinners. Wish the boys lived close enough to do that. emoticon

The !@#$ refrigerator is wider than they told me it was. I've had to tear up baseboards and will have to trim a countertop off. I am NOT in a very good mood right now. There are other things involved.
