Marianne, what a lovely visit you had with your daughter. The others have said it all.

Thelma - I can hardly wait until I have a garden to complain about. I don't mean that you are complaining - I mean that I will.

And hey, welcome Nora! By the way, Thelma means that many of us are singing the praises of the "Fictional" pool boys. Just thot to clarify that - just in case. Don't want to scare you away! We are a bunch of chronologically gifted gfs - who pretend at behaving badly sometimes just to keep things lively ... but mostly we just enjoy each other, welcome new women to the forum, sing each other praises, buck each other up -- and have a good ol' time. It seems that Marianne and Thelma and Jan have become the glue lately as many of us have "stuff" keeping us from indulging in cyberspace ... but we are still reading.

Kathy - Love the poem!

And, Janet, I enjoyed the tea - thank you!)

Bunny, you are sounding chipper! Yay! Hope school is going really well.

I miss Holly - I have a feeling she is really busy ... with her family, animals, farm, community and the folks she cares for. (My goodness! Who DOESN'T Holly care for?!) And sometimes her internet connection doesn't behave.

I was going to regale you all with the saga of my youngest daughter's need for surgery and the insurance company blind-siding her -- but all's well that ends well - and I'll fill you all in later. must abandon for now. Got lunch with a friend.

Again,

Keep calm and carry on!

Went to luch with my sister, our weekly thing to do. Been busy sewing, making things for November craft sale. Finally getting things done. Just wish I could leave my sewing out so I could sew whenever it struck my fancy. We have been having such nice weather, hard to believe it is supposed to snow Friday. We have not had to turn on the heat yet, that is very unusual for this time of the year. It is usually before October. I am not complaining, mind you, I love it just the way it is now, in the 30s at night and 50s-60s during the day. The leaves are turning now and starting to fall. We need to mow one more time before we can put the mower away for the season.
Darlys, hope your daughter is okay. You got us curious now as to what is going on. Pool boys and lemonade sound so good right now. I could use a cook also. My hubby does not cook, he can't even heat leftovers. I am making beef dip sandwiches for supper tonight. Easy meal in the slow cooker.
Will try to get on here later,

Oh Darlys you are so right I am being real witchy about the garden right now. I hope you will be able to garden soon. It's just that we always plant way more than we can use and end up giving alot away. I'm grumpy because I always have to deal with produce before I can do anything else. Me bad! I hate store bought fresh veggies that have been genetically altered to rippen on a truck some where. so won't have fresh stuff again until spring. (I do buy fresh fruit) Just another hardish of Iowa winters.
Oops! sorry Nora. I should have explained myself better. Make-believe dear only make-believe! giggle. I just wish they would share that darn lemonade recipe giggle

Heard on the evening news that North Dakota is evpecting up to 14 inches of snow tonight. Wow. Janet I hope that you are spared that. We had 90 degree weather here today - very unusual. I guess we are supposed to have a hard freeze tonight and then daytime temps in the 50's and 60's for the next 2 weeks. I have all my plants in that i want to save and picked all the red tomatoes I could get my hands on - for eating only! No more canning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! grrrrr
Janet you commented that you want a cook - I want a cleaning person to come in and clean the kitchen after I cook giggle
Marianne, are you keeping busy with your sewing project. I can relate to your ironing new fabrics as I find it a major task in quilting. The tactile experience gets my creative juices flowing.
The presidential debates will be on in an hour so I better go take my shower and hunker down for the evening. Darwin came home from the fields early, but has already been wisked away by his nephew to talk antique tractors. Taa taa chickie poos

Really great photo Thelma. Thanks for sharing it. Does your windmill pump water?

Well, my sewing is still in progress. today I woke up with a sore throat and it hasn't gotten better. Anytime I get a common cold it settles in my lower back, AKA my Achilles Heel. I feel like I have not been punched in the kidneys, but kicked in the kidneys. And I get whiny. Did I need to include that part????

I still got a lot done. Pear Pie, lots of plums pitted for the ponies enjoyment, made a huge salad, grocery shopped, stopped at the library, watched the debate. Now I am tired.

I will catch you gals tomorrow!

Marianne, I hope you feel better today after a night's sleep. Sometimes that is all we need to feel better. You did alot yesterday besides.
I just got doe washing throw rugs, had to hang them in the house, it is foggy out and drizzling. Swept floors and scrubbed, dusted and vacuumed. Now I am taking a break, maybe do some crocheting.
Have a great day,

Marianne, sounds like your sniffles aren't much fun. I think a day resting is in order. Everything on you todo list will still be there when you are feeling better.

Janet, I'm a bit jealous of the drizzle. My favorite time of year in my log house was fall. I hade a giant fireplace and would get a fire going, turn on some good music and sew all night. Thankfully the weather is cooling down here. But no rain in site. Sounds like you are ready for a nice cup of tea and some hand work.

Thelma, nice photo of your windmill. I agree with Marianne, does it pump water?

Well, looks like my sister is getting back with her xhusband for the 5th time. Yes...they will have married 5 times and divorced 4 times with this marriage. He had the daughter from hell and would not stand up to her. So the marriage ...well kind of had rocks in it. But she is married and living Ina different state. So hopefully will stay out of their lives. I don't look forward to living close to my sister though. She is a total Dr. Jeckle Mr. Hyde personality. You never know what is coming and she can change in a second.

School is going good. I like working in the library. My knees don't though. All the up and down putting away books takes a toll. I am learning every day though.

Well, homework is calling. I better get to it.

Later all.

The debate just gave me a headache.

My daughter was scheduled for surgery on September 27th ... I was planning on going down on the 26th and drinking hospital coffee on my birthday ... but ... on September 25th! she was notified that her insurance hadn't approved the surgery. She was, of course, upset. She even had her pain medication Rxs filled. She called the insurance company and finally found out that her case had be sent on for RE-review. Let's see now ... diagnosis is: prolapsed uterus, prolapsed bladder, excessive bleeding and incontinence .... well, what the heck - she might just be wanting surgery for the fun of it! Well, ON, yes "ON", September 27th (after everything; doctor, pre-op, operating room, anesthesiologist) had been be walked back -- she was notified that she was approved for surgery on September 27TH! Can we say -- all together now -- "incompetence!" Anyway ... everything is being rescheduled. I don't have a date yet, but am waiting to hear when I should re-pack the car and actually head for Santa Barbara.

Maybe I'll share the secret lemonade recipe in December (we will be in Maui again for 2 weeks) ... depending on the pool boy situation.

Thelma... love the windmill. And, if you are a witch ... it's the "good witch!" You are sweet, kind and beautiful. Are you dressing for Halloween?

Marianne, do feel better soon. I hope this sore throat and cold coming on is just a fleeting thing.

Honey Bunny --- I'm so glad you are enjoying the library work ... in spite of the knees. (I truly can empathize with that!)

What's that about expecting S-N-O-W? Well, confession ... I have a stack of Christmas CDs on and playing today. Weather has finally cooled down (by about 15-20 degrees) to the 70s. And it is expected to stay coolish for at least 10 days. That's what the weather guessers say. Maybe even a touch of rain - but don't count on it.

I promised myself that I would iron at least five things every day - not counting flat stuff - until there is nothing left to iron. (I hope to see the end one day in the near future.) I have done four items so far today and number five beckons. So, I'm off to finish today's quota.

hello everybody--a quick check in I took a picture of the before and after a 6" dish made in last week glass class. I'll post this first to see if it works. yes the glass changed from clear to pink in the firing process. The glass is called a "striker" glass when it does this. sorry for the poor quality photography

I was reading about the high apartment rent Marianne--in Austin I can get a 2 bdrm 2 ba 1 car attached garage, gas fireplace, pool,clubhouse, separate men/women sauna - 10 minutes from downtown--$1560/mo. for about 1100 sq ft I think. If you want to be right downtown expect to double thatand no private garage. and this is high to us and going higher. there are jobs in Austin. We are getting Formula one racetrack which will ruin our city but bringing in 1000 jobs they say.

Glenda, it was good to hear from you. I love the glass piece that you. You did such a wonderful job on it. It looks very profesional. How long does the class go yet, or are you done? I have a friend that made all her own dinner plates that way. It is an expensive hobby, but is beautiful. Love it. Glad you are doing so well. Yes, Holly, Penny and Patty are missed, but we all know that they are up the their ears busy. Makes it special when we do hear from them.
Have a great evening,

Good morning,

Wow! Darlys, what a mess that is about your DD's operation. How crazy is that, giving the go ahead the day of the scheduled surgery. Well, I hope all goes well for you this next scheduled time.
Hey, can I go in your suitcase to Maui? I can make myself soooo little with my magic sand. I used it once when I first met my Dh and went on a camping trip with him in his pocket. I even sat in his ear while he hiked.
There was a woman on an old TV show that won a prize for having the most laundry to be ironed. The showed it on the stage and it was this huge pile. It seems that instead of ironing her boys' shirts she just kept buying new ones. Her prize was that all the laundry would be ironed. I wondered where she was going to put all those ironed clothes.

Thelma, the picture of the windmill is so nice. I think of you so often and you are always in my prayers.

Kathy the poem is so lovely and you are so gifted. Thank you for sharing it. I have always lived by the sea and it is like magic for me.

Marianne I am glad to hear that you had a really good time with your DD. I hope you will feel better soon. Take care.

Janet what are you making?

Bunny, I am thinking about your homework and remembering how hard it was for me when I was going to school, working and having my 2 kids with a husband who gave me no help. Keep up your spirits, girl.

Glenda it is so nice to hear from you. The glass is beautiful and I can see why you love making it. The colors are pretty. The rents in Austin seem like the ones in So. CA. My GD is renting in Huntington Beach, CA for $900 a month for a bachlorette place with no garage.

DH had to visit the emergency room Tuesday evening. He was having chest pressure and was feeling sick to his stomach. After 3 hours and many tests the doctor said everything was okay. Since DH has had diverticulitis in the past the dr. put him on a bland diet. I am so glad all was okay. I had to freeze the big, tasty stew I made for dinner. Dh is now eating chicken soup with rice, jello and oatmeal.

Have a beautiful, heartfelt day my dear ones.

Hugs,

Nancy

Make everyday a celebration of the heart.

Good morning
Well I hope it is a good morning for every one. I am staying home today because the "crud" has finaly gotten to me. I have faught long and hard but in the end the the "crud" won. :(

Kathy glad you doing better. I hope you get feeling back in your hand soon.

Nancy those are fantastic. I love how creative people are. I would love to have seen all the quilts at that show.

Thelma are you ok? There have got to be better things to kiss around your house than the side walk!
Yes I know what sense pots are. I have one in my room at the school. No I don't know how to keep the scent from fadding. It usually lasts about a week. Then I add more or dump that one out and try a new scent. I also turn mine off at night.

Kathy that was a great poem. I think I would stomp my feet to.

Nora Welcome If your over 50 you have come to the right place. We are all over 50 and fabulous!

Darlys you are only pretending! LOL

Thelma I am with you I want a really good (LOL) lemonade recipe.

Janet wants a cook, Thelma wants some one to clean after she cooks, and I want someone to vacume and dust. It's funny but we all have thing we like and don't like to do.
Thelma I wish I was closer. I would gladly come and can tomatos. I did not get any and they are too expensive at the farmers markets.

Thelma Love the pic. Sunset is always good for pics.

Glenda those are beautiful. I wonder if they have a class like that around here. Like I need one more thing to do. LOL

Darlys I know what your DD is going through. I can not believe the insurance would even have to review it at all. Let alone re-review it. Must be men. No woman would ever say no to that surgery.

It has gone from 80 degrees to 60 degrees over night. We have not had a freeze yet, but lots of warnings. I think Fall has finally arrived. I miss the warm but I am looking forward to the change in seasons.

Nancy, so sorry to hear of your dh's trip to emergency. I hope the pain has passed and your heartrate has returned to normal. Thank goodness it was just the diverticulitis, not his heart.

Darlys, what a nightmare with the insurance. The preparation for surgery is very taxing emotionally, plus having all your "back up" in place, you know who is picking you up, stuff like that. What a mess for your daughter. I hope all goes well from here on out. You are in my prayers.

Glenda, the glass work is so pretty. It seems it will always be a surprise what you get after firing the piece. Looks like you hit the jackpot. Enjoy and please post more photos. Love the before and after.

Yesterday was my opthalmalogist appointment about the narrow angle glaucoma issue that was brought up at my eye exam in August. The doctor feels my chance of having an event that would damage my eyesight is low. I feel so much better after having a very thorough exam by a specialist. I would do anything not to lose my sight. Thanks for all the well wishes on the subject when I shared it with you all.

The sore throat is lingering but not worsening. Now I hear Dd has it, too. She is on the verge of losing her voice since she has to do so much speaking at work. Today is her "Friday" and then she will have two days off to rest. I hope she has the same virus I have. It is more of an inconvenience than terrible sickness.

Kathy, it's about time to check in and let us know how your recovery is coming.

Bunny, I hope you have a light homework weekend so you can enjoy the fall weather.

Dianne, it was a treat to have you longer post to read! How is the school year treating you?

So, Jan, did you get to your crocheting and what do you have on your hook? Drizzling weather does make you want to hunker down and be cozy while you do something that you can hold in your lap. I am still trying to get through my library book to start on the book you sent me. I peaked at the first few lines and it really picqued my interest. Looking forward to it.

Looks like we will have our first freeze this week. I pulled some of the zucchini plants out and started cleaning up the garden. The plums are loaded this year. I am at the point that I am pitting them for the horses. They love them so much. So do the deer. We have a pair of twin youngsters that are very brave. They don't run from us, the dogs or practically anything. I hope they learn some street smarts soon! They are beautiful. But, I have had enough visits from them, my trees need their leaves still.

Today I have so much to do I can't figure out where to start, so I've been goofing off watching Saturday morning PBS which I love. Just saw a segment caled "Keyhole" gardening and googled it and there is so much good information and such an interesting concept for those of us whose knees have gone south before us. also cheap to make with just about anything lying around and uses small space.

I soaked pinto beans last night and have them in the crockpot and have jalapeno corn muffins in the freezer so I'm covered for supper tonight.

We have our first "Sweater Weather" and it is so nice not to have the a/c running. It's overcast so maybe that's why I cannot get up enough energy to do any real work today.
Bunny I liked your description of getting a big fire going and sewing all night-- I could just picture it. I do most of my sewing in the winter time. sounds like your sister knows how to put the fun in dysfunctional but, gee wizz 5 times to the same guy??

Hope everybody is getting over the colds and other "bugs" the cool weather seems to bring that around too.

hugs to all my sistas

Bunny, I am with Glenda. Five times to the same guy. There is a lesson to be learned there ... don't know what it is, but definitely some lesson to be learned. How do you resist mentioning that everytime you introduce her to someone? You must have more self-control than I do! Relatives can be a great source of entertainment (and sorrow). Bunny you make your sewing "center" sound so cozy.

Glenda, I was just mentioning to dh that it is about time for me to make Portugese beans. He was super excited about the prospect. got to check to see if I have linquica in the freezer. Sweater weather is right up my alley. The best feeling is that first chill of fall. Enjoy! OK, PBS being on the chopping block for one of our presidential choices must have caught your attention! I've got to check out the knee info on Keyhole.


So, I need a reality check from you gals. Some background for this story is that last year our health insurance had a LIFEtime maximum of 500K. Not really enough if something catastrophic happened. So, I learned to watch how medical benefits were adding up. Fast forward to August when dh and I had our eyes checked at what I would expect to be NOT the most expensive place ... WalMart Eye Center, by the independent optometrist who quotes a cost of $69 for an exam. We both went and were asked if we had insurance. We said yes but it was out of area and it may be difficult for them to get payment and we would be satisfied to pay out of pocket and await reimbursement. Well, this gentlemen worked the entire time I had my exam and then my husband had his exam, not to mention the fifteen minutes we arrived before our appointment to get our insurance researched and approved. I was pretty impressed. He really jumped through some hoops for us to not have to be out of pocket the cost until reimbursement by our insurance company. Fast forward again four weeks and I get my explanation of benefits from our insurance co. for our exams which were billed to our insurance company and paid at the cost of $190 minus the discount of $.80 for a total of $189.20. Each. I called WalMart and asked how much an eye exam was. The answer without pause was, "$69." I asked if it could ever be more and the gal told me only if I wanted to be fitted for contact lenses, which, of course, neither of us did.

Also noticed that although the eye center collected a copay of $15 from both dh and I, only dh's acct was credited it.

I have called the billing person for the optometrist, never received a call back. Went in in person and was told they can charge the insurance that much and that the doctor would call me and that the doctor owed us the fifteen dollars. Never recieved a call or the $15. It's been several weeks now.

I did ask my insurance about the cost. They said they pay in "good faith." Whatever that means.

What would you do? I figure some options are: writing letters to the insurance commissioner of the state of WA. Writing a letter of complaint to the medical board. Complaining to WalMart. Involving our local TV personality that "solves" problems like these. It just chaps my BEEhind.

Sorry for the length. And, no my cold isn't gone yet. Can't ya tell? Still whiney.

Marianne, I'm all for calling the media. With all the hullabaloo about Obamacare I think this would be newsworthy. Neither the insurance companies or the providers really care about us. It's all about profit.
Go get um!

Marianne, what are Portugese beans and what is linquica? I have made Spanish Bean Soup,a Cuban dish, but never heard of Portugese. sounds interesting.

I have been on medicare and the supplemental ins for part b or whatever and i have never had a problem. i paid not one penny on that huge surgery last march. but I am smart enough to know someone paid for it--it wasn't money falling from the sky.
I think i would make one more call to walmart to the head of their accounting dept and tell them you want to give them the opportunity to make this right before you go to the media with the story. that might get their attention. it always helps in these matters to ask politely for the name of each person you speak with and ask how to spell it so they know you are taking notes. if the person you are speaking with can not resolve your problem then ask for their supervisor. the doctor is probably the last person to know about billing.

My daughter-in-law travels extensively for her job and is exposed to germs constantly and she swears by this when she feels like she might be catching a cold or exposed to one: swab out both nostrils with q-tips soaked in hydrogen peroxide and then gargle with real listerene. I learned of elderberry syrup on the MJ forum last year and found it at the health food store and I believe it stops a cold if you take it soon enough and helps a lot if you have one. also for cold and sinus nasal congestion a netti pot or sinus rinse will work wonders. just make sure you use boiled or distilled water not tapwater. Ed says it takes 10 days to get rid of a cold if you do nothing and 10 days if you treat it. probably right.

It is in the 50's here and feels wonderful.

yes i would hate to lose PBS but I would rather do without it than borrow money from China to pay for it. I don't understand why there are hundreds of channels of nothing but garbage and only PBS for anything of substance. I thought Oprah was going to do some good with her OWN but there's nothing there either. I am reduced to watching sappy love stories on Hallmark most nights since I dont like to watch killing and dying and sex and that's just the reality shows..hahaha



hugs to all my sistas

Hello my Farmgirl Sisters,
I thought I would drop by to let you know I'm still kicking. I got a lot of reading to catch up on...I pray for all that are struggling...in pain, or having any other kind of issues. Work is trying to kick my butt...lol...but I'm not letting it...still working at least 40 hours a week. I've been enjoying watching my grandson play middle school football...even if it is a 5 hour round trip. He is turning into a great player. Well just wanted to jump on to say hi...I'm off to catch up with the rest of ya'lls posts. Miss ya'll hopefully I can get around more often. love ya all...

(((((Hugs All)))))Penny
