Welcome to all the new ladies! I will never catch up on this thread, another new page started when I get back here. lol
Judy: remember Sam, grandpa's mule? i love donkeys...and horses...and any 4 legged critter I can cuddle. Like the sound of you going to the Holistic Doc sis.
dentists make me shiver, was making my hair stand up on my arms remembering "the drill". hate that device.

Make my words soft and tender, for I may have to eat them. :)

Thanks for the Welcomes...I don't mind going to the Dentist...other than it always hurts my pocket-book much more than my mouth.
About 3 months ago I needed one tooth extracted and a root pulled out from a crown gone bad. They were very easy pulls. I could have
pulled the one out by myself (and I kicked myself that I didn't). I thought well this is going to cost me about $250.00 for the two
extractions. I am already in the chair novacained up and they tell me it is going to cost $530.00 and do I have the money? I had to
call my son with the dentist standing there and ask him if he could lend me the extra money until payday. PTL that my son has a
bigger savings account than his mother. LOL I still need to get back and have more work done but I am paying off my heart procedure
first.~ The thing that urks me the most is that Medicare thinks that having teeth to chew with, hearing aids to hear with and eye's
to see with...are all vanity issues so they won't cover them. So frustrating and so sad...that we pay into all this stuff the years
we work and for what? ~ Well on to a cheerier subject. It looks like it is going to be a very overcast day here but no rain...just
dropping into the 70's. ~ I read a quote today that I found delightful...so I will leave you with this:
"I meant to do my work today...but a brown bird sang in the apple tree, and a butterfly flitted across the field, and all
the leaves were calling me." ~ Richard Le Gallienne

Hi Juanita and Nancy ... and Betty .... I'm so glad to see sixty-something-sweethearts here. I'm 68 and counting. Maybe there should be a forum for Sage Sisters Smiling at Seventy.

Hi Judy .. Thanks for your kind words about my post. I'm just getting my feet wet here and am really enjoying the messages. I'm still reading this forum. I read backwards two pages from the end and then forward --- again. I am somewhere around page 10-12 and moving forward.

and Nancy and Peggy Ann, too --

My dental appointment is 8/23 ... it's only for a cleaning - but that usually takes almost an hour. I'm good now but if you want a story of "The Worst Must Be Over" ... I could recite the saga of a couple of years ago when I got 18 implants! The saga lasted about a year and a half. On the upside .... it's been done for quite a while now and I have had NO problems. Yay. I still cring at the thought of that bill! I told the dentist that I hoped he appreciated that, between hubby and I, we were putting all his kids through college AND paying for an extra foot on his yacht. (He is a good guy - and I guess that's worth something, too.) Our retirement to Oakhurst got pushed out over a year though.

It's a pleasant day here in Cupertino today. Supposed to get to 80. I need to get out and take a walk. I haven't been doing that enough here lately.

Last night I made Swedish meatballs for dinner and have enough leftover to have them again. Maybe tomorrow. I thought I'd make some Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and salad tonight. I got the stuff I need at Whole Foods (or as my son calls it - Whole Paycheck) yesterday.

Til' later ---- Farmgirl at Heart #3284

I haven't been to a dentist for 7 years now. The last one I went to referred me to another dentist for a procedure and when I reported back to the first one, he said he had sent me to the wrong one!? That upset me so much I haven't been back and I am sure that will be fun when I do. Not only referred me to the wrong dentist, but when he was inquiring about the procedure I asked why couldn't you just do this and so--he said if I didn't like the way he was doing things, I should find me another dr. That was it!

I'm so glad I have found a good family doctor. I don't know how he does it, but he listens to me as if he were truly interested. He also is able to refer me to a doctor when I need to be referred and it doesn't take months to get in.

Peggy Ann, I have a PPO right now and they don't think it is important to hear either. I still work full time and my company pays for part of the insurance, why would'nt they want me to hear what my boss tells me??? I need hearing aids in both ears as I went to too many concerts in my 20's and now the middle of my hearing is gone, mostly I hear the high stuff and the low stuff, my kids just yell when they talk to me.

Judy...my first husband was a Rock Musician in the 60's and 70's...and that is also what my hearing loss is from. The band wives were always seated up front by the band but in front of at least one of the big JBL Speakers. I hear very low sounds but nothing in mid range
or high range. So I know just how you feel not being able to hear.

Betty in Pasco...haven't seen you on a Thread for a long time. Maybe we have just been hanging out on different forums.

Patsy, every time I think of Sam, I remember G-Pa sitting me on his back and trying to lead him. But Sam was having none of it. He kept trying to nibble G-Pa's boot and wouldn't budge. lol

Peggy, I love that quote. So true in Summer!
Darly....18 IMPLANTS!!! Acccckkkkkk!!! My word girl.....tell us why...please! My mouth hurts thinking about all that...so does my purse!
*geesh* Whole Foods/Whole Paycheck......too funny! Loved it!
Betty, glad it all evened out for you...lousy dentist...super family doctor. We need to get science to clone the good ones...use the bad ones up for parts...hahaha....like a junk car!!! hahahahaha I crack me up!!!hahaahaha
I just love you girls! You all make my day! You make me Think, make me be Thankful and make me Giggle!It's so nice to have so many Like-Minded-Spirits to hang out with. Thanks!

Hey Judy ...

Bless you for caring. I'd had dentures for years. Mouth was small, teeth were big ... and so, in the "olden days" got some pulled to make room ... but the teeth left were soft and eroded quickly and so what with cavities & all, they came out, too. Hence, dentures. Dentures wore on my gums and eroded my jawbone. By the time I got to the prosthodontist that "saved my mouth" it was a hair this side of having my jawbone break. splinter, shatter .... whatever it is jawbones do. I had to have X-rays to see how much bone I had left, (not much) and had to have bone grafted from my skull to my jawbone (sure, that was fun) .... and once that had healed enough - (but not too much or the graft begins to diminish) ... the implants went in. I compare the implants themselves to molly bolts. They are like metal "plugs" that are inserted into the jawbone and extend out. Caps (that are the teeth) are put on over the extended part of the molly bolt. In my case -- I had to have some bridgework as well ... joining the spaces of the implants to get a full mouthful of teeth. WAAAY too much dental work to explain it all here --- but, believe me, I'm glad that's over with - forever. I do have to go in 3 times a year for teeth cleaning though. Gotta say "hi" and wave my checkbook in the dentist's office. I was glad, however, with respect to the procedure --- that there was such a thing as spare parts for the mouth. Everything tastes better -- I can even eat corn on the cob and carmel apples without fear now.

And for everyone with lousy hearing ... count me in your numbers -- but for a different reason. The story is that when I was 3 and in the hospital with measles ...I left the hospital without measles but my hearing was "off." Turned out I had a small hole in my eardrum. (Some theories are that I was actually born with it.) Anyway, nothing was ever done about it ... and last year, when I went to a specialist, I found out that now I have almost no eardrum left. I'm not supposed to even clean that ear - it's supposed to be done by a specialist. $$$$ They could put in a synthetic eardrum ... they could (in a separate operation) scrape some of the buildup off the earbone (it's the earbone that affects the hearing). BUT even if I have both operations - the prognosis is that it wouldn't do much, if anything, for my hearing. It's only one ear -- the other ear is fine. I decided that I'm old enough to forego the surgeries and just opt for ... "eh, eh", "what, what", "talk to my other ear", and - if needed ... "but I didn't hear you say no".

Well, I'm off for a bit to do some quilt layout. I''m starting a log cabin pattern and with 17 fabrics involved - I need to set up my design board and put on my wrist brace (for cutting).

oxox, Darlys

Hi to all you new people and welcome. I add my two cents in every once in a while and it's good to hear from new members. Darlys, I quilt too and have just finished a log cabin top for my granddaughter who is getting married in October. Mine didn't have that many different fabrics to it though. Good Luck with it. Good night, God Bless to you all.

Darlys...if I had gone through what you have, with your mouth...I would need Therapy from the trauma. Wow...that seems like
extreme Dentistry! You need a Metal of Valor Girlfriend!

Betty & Darlys...I don't quilt, but I love handmade quilts and love the Log Cabin design. Good Luck to both of you on your individual guilts. You should post pictures when you finish them. It would be
fun to see the differences.

Judy...Confession is good for the Soul. lol Am I going to have to start an over 60's Group...come October? LOL

Night Girls,

Darlys, that was a lot of dental work. When my mother was on Medicare she got no glasses, dental work or hearing aid help. As soon as she was broke and went on SSI or in CA it was called Medicaid she received everything. She got medicine, glasses, dental care, and everything for only the cost of her monthly Medicare check.

About the hearing... it is so strange. My hearing is getting bad. I went with my DH to get it tested. I told the man who does the testing that I was having trouble and after the testing he tells me that my hearing isn't at the moderate hearing loss range yet and that I still don't need any hearing aids. Well, goody for him!! My left ear does not hear well. My problem is mis-hearing the end of words. Now my DH has moderate hearing loss and he won't get hearing aids. ??? Oh life can be so funny!

Judy, I am so interested in herbs. I finally bought a book about herbs that I am reading right now. I usually use them in salads and especially in teas.

Peg thanks for your quote. It is very early here in Florida and it has started my day off with a smile.

Hugs and God's Blessings!

Hey to Debra -- "Hang in there - and you'll quickly get the "hang" of it. I'm new, too - since the middle of July. Now, as I see what others have been through - and/or are going through I'm opening up and loving these women. Tough and tender, funny, fun and fascinating. What a fantastic group!

Betty -- since yesterday my different fabrics in each block have been reduced to 10. Thank goodness for the design board ... 17 fabrics were way too busy - but there are still 17 strips in each block. This is an evolving piece of work. We were in Monterey a couple of weekends ago for a long weekend and to meet up with friends there for a conference from Utah. We went to a couple of quilt shops there - just to check them out. My honey picked out a bear design fabric, carried it over to me and just sort of stood there with a smile on his face. (He's a man of few words.) So, I asked him "is this YOUR quilt?" Bigger smile. So, I'm intent on making this his Christmas present. I don't know yet how big it will ultimately be. But it will definitely be on the sofa in Oakhurst. I worked too long and suffered a bit on a king-sized French Braid pattern that will stay on our bed -- maybe forever. I was just past the beginning quilter stage when I started that one (don't make it simple, silly). It did turn out lovely, though.

Peggy -- You make me laugh ... and I adore your tag lines. And, thank you -- I'm getting the therapy I needed then from your posts now. By the way, (you can see I'm not very talented at the abbreviations that make up so many messages - I don't always understand them) after every dental session - and there were more than I can count - I would come home and say -- "well, the worst is over!" It wasn't. But I always hoped.

Nancy - California used to be really good about that. I'm not sure what we do now due to the budget - but my oldest daughter just had some much needed surgery (actually a complete hysterectomy) and it was covered by CA Medicaid. She, and her family, are struggling financially - hopefully, things will turn around. I'm glad your mother was able to get that assistance -- but so sorry that she had to be of such limited resources to get it. Since my husband is still working (I call him my boy-toy sometimes - he's almost 6 years younger than I am) we are still covered by company insurance. It's Kaiser - and although some folks don't like it - we have only had good experiences with it. We also have dental insurance - but dental only covers $2K per year per person. That didn't make a dent in our dental bills of the past. We were, happily, well enough off to take care of it ... but, like I said, our retirement to Oakhurst has been pushed out a year (at least).

Wow - a lot of us have hearing issues! I hear you, sisters! A hearing aid wouldn't do me any good. It would only feed me distorted noise. I'm good with one good ear. I sleep on my good ear and external noise (i.e. hubby snoring) doesn't bother me. I snore, too - but it doesn't seem to bother him. He won't admit it yet - but I think he's not hearing as well as he thinks he does.

Okay -- who else supports a chiropractor?

Love to all - oxox

Judy, I'm interested in herbs, too. How about tossing in a thing or two about lesser known benefits of specific herbs occasionally?

Debra: welcome to the group.It's a fine mix of ladies we have here and you will get the hang of things soon.

Darlys and Betty: would love to see pics of the quilts.

Darlys: wow! that was a lot of dentistry. you DO deserve that medal. had to LOL when you talked about not doing a simple quilt. every time I start a new craft, it seems that I do the hardest one to learn on. lucky for me it usually turns out all right.
have learned and dabbled in so many crafts by teaching myself. just get a book, read it and start practicing.

Hi Patsy -- Just logged on for a quick fix before I start laundry. I'll get Larry (my husband) to take a few photos. I'd love to see some of Betty's quilts, too.

We are cut from the same cloth! I am always thinking I can just jump right in and as long as there is a pattern - or instructions - that I can just whip whatever it is right out. Only then I get impatient and, well thank goodness for do-overs! I usually wind up with something that turns out alright, too. And then I think I'm so sharp .... and I try to be uber-creative. Lots of unfinished projects lurking in corners. Not so sure what I had in mind on THAT one. Oh, well ...

But I am so totally with you on this point -- get a book, start reading it ... get motivated .... get materials .... get going. I have taught myself everything- and every once in a while - enhanced my crafting, quilting, calligraphy, etc. by taking a class or two. Maybe that's why Mary Jane's Farm magazine grabbed my attention. ideas for stuff I just might try. (Not to mention all the side benefits that I picked up on later ... like the Connection ... among other things.)

Okay - the laundry is gathering dust. (oooo - that was so bad.) I should have tossed it in the washer while I wrote. But I didn't -- so off to it.

Judy - I know - I know. It took me over an hour to write the above post as my son came in and started chatting. By the time I sent him off to the store I'd forgotten some of what I was going to say. But I learned the hard way a day or two ago - don't roll the page back! Sorry you lost that post ... but you will only write something even more delightful this time around. oxox, Darlys - Sister 3284 --- (Am I putting off doing laundry?)

Oh Judy, I hope that you enjoyed your tree gnawing! I absolutely hate when I lose a good post to the internet monster! I usually type up my posts on a word pad or word document and then copy and past it in. I am so forgetful that I'd never remember what I posted before it got zapped.

It's hot here, but I bet it's hotter where some of you live. Hoping for rain for everyone who needs it and dry for all the farmers trying to get things ripe!

Have a splendid weekend!

OH my gosh, sis! I was just thinking of writing stuff on a notepad because we're on a new page now and I wouldn't remember who said what, and then you went and done it. me sorry for you. when you get back from gnawing on that tree, try again. I like the idea posted about writing on the word pad-- notepad would work too. :D

OK...I'm back....spitting out tree bark.....hahaha....here we go....

.....Darly-girl...you have such a great sense of humor.....I hope you have that mouth insured now. Do ya give tours...hahaha...I wanna see, I wanna see.....
Welcome to the group Debra. You'll get the hang of it. I think we all started out slow and unsure of ourselves. But just look at us now!! lol
Nancy, I just love herbs for everything. Tea, cooking, medicinal,hair and skin, you can't beat herbs. My Gr-Grandma and my Mom used them when we were growing up. When I got out on my own, I bought my first herb book-Back to Eden by Jethro Kloss. My Mom has the old hardback of it. Then my next book was Prescription for Nutritional Healing by James F and Phyllis A Balch. From there I grew into this big library. It's all so fascinating. When I hear about an illness that runs in our family and is in our blood, I read up on it and see if there is an herb for prevention. You know what they say, An ounce of prevention....." I truely believe that. I even use them on my pets.After working in Pharmacies, anything without side effects is better than those drugs. I have an herbal combination that I use when I can't sleep and also take before I go to the dentist. He drills and I don't feel a thing. It's by Solray and called Sleep Blend SP-17. It has hops, valerian, scullcap, chamomile, passion flower, dandelion, marshmallow and hawthorne and it's amazing. When my dentist was done removing and replacing an old filling that was falling out, he said" Man they'd be peeling me off the ceiling by now if I didn't use novacaine." I can't use novacaine, I'm allergic to it. But with this formula, I didn'tfeel a thing. hahaaha
Ok girls, I want to see pics of quilts too. I don't even know what a log cabin design is.
Annika, where you been girl. It's been ages since I've seen you on here. We must travel different roads. Good to see you again!
Well, I'd better send this before the "Internet-Monster" gobbles it up. hahaha
Nite Gals!

Judy...I have been attacked by the Internet Monster more times than I care to talk about. Usually when I am on The Porch
and have written something to everyone. Usually...I throw something and scream and shut down my computer. I should try
gnawing on a Tree too... but I am afraid I would have to get some of that Extreme Dental Work done for sure! lol I think
tonight YOU could use some hugs and french squizzles!

Betty...beautiful guilt! I love the colors you used. Lovely!

Annika & Patsy...notepad or wordpad that is such a great idea! But will I really do it??? Time will tell.

Darlys...do you hire out for Laundry Services? :+) I hate doing laundry because I live in a Sr. Estates and have to go
up to a laundry room to do our laundry. It is so weird because the Apartments across the Street all have washers
and dryers inside their apartments (owned by the same company who owns our building) but I guess they think Old People
want to go up and down stairs to wash their clothes...and pay to wash and dry them too. They also have storage units
off their porches but we have no storage what so ever. I don't get it!?* Crazy! It must be Old People Discrimination!

Nancy... isn't that crazy...the difference between Medicare and Medicaid??? Again something is wrong with that picture.
But atleast your mom finally got some much needed help. I think
she is in the minority.

Well, tomorrow my grand-daughter that is here visiting from Spokane...and I are going to go take in a Movie. A total kids
movie (not one I am much interested in) but it is all about her having fun while she is here with us. She is almost 11
and just such a good kid. As long as I can have some popcorn and soda...I will be able to handle anything. Saturday
we are going to take her to a local Lake for a picnic and swimming and Church Sunday morning and then she leaves later
that day. I have so enjoyed her company this week! I have been teaching her to cook and that has been fun for both of us.

I am off to check my other posts and then head to bed my dear new friends.

Blessings,
Peggy
