My Chronicle for 2018
by Richard R. Wilt

January 1, 2018
00:00AM Watched the Ball drop over Times Square. It was in the lower teens in NYC. Watched Kennedy (Montgomery) and Jessie Watters from 11 until midnight. It was extremely cold, I don't see why anyone would stand out in the cold to just watch the ball drop and say they were in NYC for New Year's Eve.

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. Watch old series "Twilight Zone", great show.
Note:
Things that I want to obtain during 2018. Don't know if I will get them or not but maybe some of them:
1: Crock Pot Got on January 13th
2: Small freezer. 7.0 cuft freezer delivered on February 21, 2018 with 3 five gal containers of roof paint and supplies to do the painting.
3: LDG Antenna Tuner
4: Linear Amplifier (600 watts)
5: Build a Radio shack shelf
6: Get a walk in tub installed in the front bath room and have the sewer repaired as needed.Found to be to much money. May check at a later date and see if I can get a handy man to do it on a hourly basis and buy the parts at Lowe's I found a place in Euless, TX that has replacement showers that will fit into my bathroom. Bought the shower and it will be installed by Fox Plumbing on October 24/25/26, costing me around $3000.00
7: Two chairs for the kitchen. Chairs delivered on February 24, 2018 by FedEx.
8: Get a new grill. Ordered a new gas grill from Walmart and it was delivered on January 27, 2018.


12:00PM Slept in, up and about took Bella outside. It rained during the night and everything is wet. It is also very chilly, temperature is 50 degrees. Very gloomy day. A good way to start a new year. It is a reminder of how bad the weather is up north.
1:00PM Had a bowl of cereal, took a couple pork chops out of the freezer to have later today.
5:00PM Had a couple pieces of pork. Decided not have any black eyed peas, just a cup of coffee and relax and watch the weather.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked to her for a while. She said it was down to -11 degrees early this morning. I am happy I am in Florida.
8:00PM Eric is really worried about his plants with the cold spell. Predicting possibly freezing tonight.
9:00PM Cant' quite figure out the variations in the temperatures. The wind whips up to around 10 mph and the temperature drops quickly to the low 30s and when the wind stops the temperatures go back up to the high 30s.
9:30PM Took the garbage out to be picked up tomorrow. The wind is really cold and there is some rain. 37 degrees

January 2, 2018

12:00PM Up and about, very chilly outside, lots of wind and drizzle. Took Bella outside. All night long could here the bumping and noise of the wind on my roof.
12:30PM Checked all of my antennas, and everything looks OK with no damage of any kind. Could see that the wind was moving my verticals back and forth.
1:00PM Starting texting, Tyler and Kit. Passed several texts. Tyler seems to be down or maybe it is only cabin fever. I hope he gets things straightened out and starts looking up for him. Kit told me she and Walter on going on a cruise oh Jan 7th and be gone for a week.
4:00PM Fixed myself a big steak and some red potatoes. Really good food.
7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a little while. She was telling me how cold it is in WV and that they have around 6 inches of snow on the ground and it is supposed to snow again tonight.
7:30PM Decided to not go to the LARC meeting. I will have to send them my dues.
11:00PM Talked to Eric, he is worried about his plants, but he will get through it.

January 3, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
3:00AM Warmer tonight than last night. 48.0 degrees. I think the wind is the difference. No heavy winds tonight.
10:15AM Still raining and the phone rang from 304 617 0329 and I did not recognize the number so I did not answer. Figured it was just one of those robo calls.
12:00PM the rain has stopped and the sun is out so things will start to dry up a little.
1:00PM Took Bella outside, very windy and still cool, in low 50s. Did have a little water in the Florida Room, looks like I haven't found and fixed the leak yet.
2:00PM Decided to call the two numbers that called this morning. One was one of those robo calls wanting to sell me something. The other was Varsity Place Huntington, WV. Varsity Place is a rental company controlling several apartment rentals in Huntington. As far as the young man that answered, Trevor, there was no reason they would be calling me. Maybe will find out in the future why.
7:00PM Called Barb and Dana was there and she said she would call me back.
7:30PM Barb called and we talked for over 1/2 hour.
9:00PM Texted with Eric several times about the temperature and whether his plants would make it. I told him I put a box over my water service with a 150watt bulb under the box.

6:30PM Received a call from American Standard Tubs in California. I had made some inquiries on line about the cost of walk in tubs and they were calling to sell me a American Standard walk in tub. Since I live in a MH and don't own the land they can not finance it. Also told me it would cost between $12,000.00 and $16,000.00. I think I can get it done for a whole lot less.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked.
9:00PM Eric text me Kennie Lee Sirk died this morning. He was 89 years old. He died of Brain Cancer. He must have been eaten up with cancer. He has had cancer for at least 18 years.

1:30PM Received a call from Koler about someone coming tomorrow to give me an estimate to install a walk in tub. After a short conversation the girl told me it would be in the area of $20,000.00 for a new walk in tub in my bathroom. That price is ridiculous and I told her so she said she was canceling the estimator from coming tomorrow.
2:45PM Simplisafe called and I missed the call, will call them later.
4:51PM Called the control center for Simplisafe and I told them my concerns about alerts not appearing on my list of events (8 am December 15, 2017) on the web site, so she turned off the response of any alerts to the control center and wanted me to run tests on my system. The response will be turned off until 5:08PM.
5:00PM I checked and activated all of the censors and they all worked so I called the control center back and was told that all of the alerts came through and my system was working.
5:15PM Went to the Simplisafe website and checked my event log and the events did register at the control center.
6:30PM Fixed myself a steak with red potatoes.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while. The weather there is terrible. She says it has been raining, sleeting, and snowing all day long and it is cold.

January 9, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:30AM Safestep called about someone coming here this afternoon to look at the installation of a walk in tub. I told them that I was think to put in a shower other than a walk in tub.
12:40PM Morgan Exteriors Inc called to confirm some to come out at 6PM to look and give me an estimate.
3:40PM Safestep called back and told me that they would give me a ball park price of $11,000.00 to $14,000.00 for a shower an I gold them it was to much.
3:45PM Millie called and we talked for an hour.
5:30PM Simplisafe called and was looking at my request and questions about the system working correctly. She had me first remove the batteries and move the unit and I put it in the bed room and the signal was bad there also. Then moved the unit between the kitchen and the living room and it works OK so will leave it there but Simplisafe is sending me a new chip changing my service to another cell phone service because the believe it is my service and not the unit of reporting to the control center.
6:00PM Representative from Morgan Exteriors Inc arrived to make measurements and give me an estimate.
6:15PM Simplisafe called and told me that everything seems to be working properly now.
7:00PM Barb called but the estimator was here so will call her back.
8:00PM I signed the contract and it was $8749.00 and I gave him a check for $2900.00 and the remainder will be due when the job is finished. Workers will come tomorrow afternoon to make final measurements so they can order the custom fit shower pad and enclosure and will start the installation in a few weeks.
8:10PM Called and talked to Barb, told her about how much I spent. Maybe I will feel sorry about spending all that money for a shower but I won't have to use the bathtub, which I do not like.
9:00PM Watching TV. Just wondering, did I make a mistake getting the shower installed in the bathroom. I should recover when I get my income tax back.

January 10, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, drizzle and a wet mist with fog and a slight breeze.
2:00PM While opening the screens in the Florida room a gray van stopped in front. I walked out to see what they wanted and it was a man and his wife that lives at 40 Hill Street, just a few units down the street. His first name is Pedro and he is a ham and was interested in my antennas. His call sign is NP4PF and he is from Puerto Rico and appears moved here after Maria hit PR and married a local lady. They both seem very nice. I brought them in the house and showed them my set up.
6:00PM Was expecting a call from Morgan Exteriors for some measurements but never received a call and no one showed up. They have my $2900.00 and now they will be a little slower. I expected that.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while.
9:00PM Watching TV, I have the windows open tonight. I would like to see much more weather like this for quite a while, but I know it can't last.

January 11, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, giving thought about the remodeling of the shower in the bathroom. I called and talked to Jason and told him that I still wanted the shower but I could not get the financing to complete the installation. He offered to give me back my money but he suggested that they could give me financing for the remainder of the $5840.00. I gave him my information and he said he would submit it to the finance company and the payments should be around $90.00 and I figure I can handle that except it would probably be for 8 years. We will see what they offer me and if the payment is around the $90.00 mark I will go ahead.
10.00AM Took Bella outside, opened up the screens in the Florida and leaving the sliding door open. Temperatures are great, 71.7 degrees. Waiting for the call from Jason at Morgan Exteriors.
3:00PM Took a shower, don't know when Jason will call back because I assume he has to contact the finance company and give them my information to approve the loan.
4:00PM Watching Judge Judy. I believe I will wait to go to the store tomorrow. I'll finish up the milk and I have more than enough for supper tonight. Will go over my supplies to see what I have to buy tomorrow. If I get the energy I will go to Walmart tomorrow and get a crock pot and a water hose. Walmart has crock pots on sale for $9.88 and I think that is what I will get.
6:45PM Eric called he is back home from the funeral. He said the only people there that he new was Carolyn and her daughter Michelle Johnson. He didn't say if anyone else from the family came to the funeral. He said he took a picture of Kennie in the casket and wondered if he should send it to Alecia. I told him to message her and ask if she would want it. I also asked him to send me the picture.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while.

12:00PM Had some cereal for lunch. Going to have to go to the store today sometime.
5:00PM Have been watching the work crew at my neighbors. I think they were replacing floors since they carried in several pieces of plywood, and it looks like they put in some vinyl flooring. They were quite noisy, 3 men and 1 woman.

10:00AM Text Kit back with more information about Skip. Called Morgan Exteriors and they said that the finance company would not approve the loan on a MH. Looks like a campaign including the insurance, finance, and state of Florida all not encouraging anyone in MH to improve or get anything to cover MH in Florida. Took Bella outside. Nice but cool day.

9:27AM Called and Barb answered. She said she must have sent the alarm off when she was taking a shower. She said there was nothing wrong and she had talked to the Emergency Alert dispatcher. Back to bed.
10:00AM Back up and taking a shower. Slept like a baby last nigh because I woke up with a wet diaper, LOL.
12:00PM Leaving for Paulette and Rick's house. 1:00PM Arrived and they took me out to lunch. Very nice lunch. 6:14PM While sitting talking Simpli Safe called, there was a fire alarm at my house.
6:15PM Called Jonathan and all the alarms were going off and he could not figure how to get them turned off. After talking for a few minutes he tried the remote and it would not turn the alarms off. Then I realized that the alarm system my have been turn on so I had him key int the code on the key pad and the alarms went off. The fire department came and checked to make sure that there was no fire and left and Johnathan said he apologize to the fire department about the alarm. Steve and Carlos came over to check on Johnathan to see if they could help. Seems what had happened is the power had gone off about an hour before the alarm and the alarm system reset itself to the "Alarm On" with out Johnathan knowing. Everything is now OK.
10:00PM Just got back from Paulette and Rick's.
10:30PM Called Johnathan and he said everything was now OK and not to worry. He learned something I did not know, that if the power goes off the alarm system resets itself to the "Alarm ON" stage.
11:00PM Meds, injection, getting ready to to go bed.

January 22, 2018
9:00AM Up and about, getting ready to check out of the motel and head back to Lakeland. 10:00PM Filled up the gas tank and heading out for home.
12:15PM Arrived home and the dog was really happy to see me. The house was still there, LOL. I figured out what happen last night. When the fire alarm went off and Johnathan pushed the wrong button on the alarm remote and turned all of the sensors through out the house and when he walked around and opened up the doors to clean the air, the system sense someone was walking around and the motion detector has a bright strobe light which confused Johnathan more, but when I talked to him on the phone I had him go to the control box and key the four digit code and turn everything off, but of course, by that time the fire department has gotten there. They went through and checked to make sure that there was no fire. I hope the fire department doesn't send me a bill for a false alarm.
1:00PM Eric just arrived to pick up Johnathan to take him home.
3:15PM Eric and Johnathan just left to go back to San Mateo because Eric has to pick up Josh from work at 7pm.
4:00PM Picked up my mail and received a card from Bertha Webb with Skip's obit in it. Bertha thinks Skip and Pete are my brothers not my cousins, but growing up people were all making the mistake because we were just 2 years difference in ages. Skip was Bertha's neighbor for several years.

Note: This last week end was the best time I have had in years. Seeing Jerry, Pat, Mike, Gay, Paulette, and Rick was really great. I just don't know how to say how much I enjoyed seeing everyone.

6:15PM Eric and Johnathan got home OK.
7:00PM Called Barb, felt I should call her a second time today.
7:30PM Took Bella outside and watered the banana trees. It is possible that one of the trees may live. Also it has started rain lightly. We need the rain.
8:00PM Read on FB that Yvonne Sirk's son died yesterday. He was only 32 years old but he was mentally and physically handicapped.

10:00PM Bella wanted to go outside. When we got to the back corner of the MH John with his two dogs came around the corner. Of course, Bella was very submissive and the other dogs were very aggressive. Finally got Bella away from them and she did her business. She must have heard the dogs and then wanted to go out. I try not to take Bella out when the other dogs are out, it gets to be a hassle.

January 24, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Les from behind me spoke to me and said he wanted to talk to me. He had been released from the hospital where he had open heart surgery.

10:30AM Les my neighbor just dropped by. Invited him in and we talked for a while. He seems to be doing pretty good from his open heart surgery. He wanted to sell a ware fare card he received for shopping at Publix but I don't want to get involve in that so I turned him down. I gave him a case of Roman Noodles that I had gotten for Johnathan but did not notice that they were all shrimp and Les he liked shrimp.
11:00AM Had some cereal but my hemorrhoids are acting up and I am in some pain.
2:00PM Millie called and we talked for an hour. I get the impression that she would like me to ask her to come to Florida. A visit would be fine but I am not going to get into a long time relationship here in Florida. I have the fear that it would end up her having to take care of me or that I would end up taking care of her. Neither of us need someone to take care of, we have difficulty just taking care of ourselves.

I asked the attendant about the "low tire" indicator and he said the censor is for rotation of a wheel and when the indicator sensors a difference in the speed of any of the four wheels it is triggered. He said when they check my tires when they rotated them the tires were of different pressures and that was the cause of the sensor triggering. They changed the oil and washed the car.
6:00PM Had the remainder of the stew for supper.
7:00PM Called Barb, we talked for a while and she told me that Bradley and Nicole are having a girl.

11:00PM The speech is over, didn't really hear anything that Trump hasn't said before. I just hope he can get the Liberals to go along with some of his policies. If not then things will be just in lock down unless the change the voting situation.

January 31, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
12:00PM Slept in today. Was well rested when I got up. Didn't go to bed until 3am.
12:15PM Turned on the news and heard there was a train wreck near Crozet, VA with 200+ congressmen and family on a trip to the Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, WV. More spending of our taxes.

7:00PM Called Barb, cold and expecting sleet and rain tonight.
9:00PM Text with Kit wish her a GN and text with Eric. He said he planted 216 seeds. I don't know whether the count has anything to do with the amount of plants he will have when they germinate and grow. He will have to thin out the plants in his hot bed.

February 1, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.

9:53AM Received a call but did not answer, a voicemail was left.
11:00AM Checked my voicemail and it was Henry Hadden. Henry is a researcher on the family of Millard Leo Wilt. He is married to Millard's daughter, Janet Wilt Hadden. Returned call no answer, left a voice mail.
12:00PM Took Bella outside, nice day but overcast, not much sunshine. Temperatures in 70s.
2:18PM Received a call from Henry from a house phone, 239 732 7427. We talked for about half an hour. He and his wife are visiting friends in Naples, FL. He did not know I had moved to Lakeland. I invited him to come by and visit anytime he would like when he would be in the area.
5:00PM Checked my sugar and it was 121. I will find out if my A1C is doing when I go back to Watson Clinic this month.
7:00PM Called Barbara and we talked for about half hour or until the "Wheel" came on.
8:00PM Fixed a new pot of coffee. Don't know what or if I will have for supper.
9:00PM Checked to see what my retirement pay came to for this month. January pay is $1187.77 and December after the COLA was $1162.79 so I got $24.98 increase from the tax reform. It really doesn't make any difference because I am just getting it each month instead of filing at the end of the year and getting it all back then. That is probably what is happening with everyone. We won't really know until filing in 2018 to find out by comparing it to the 2017 returns. Of course, JO is getting 40% of my retirement pay so she got a little monthly increase on her 40%. She also gets $300.00 from my SS. My SS increased with COLA will be $732.00 is unchanged from 2017, the amount to pay for my medicare increase was exactly the same amount of my COLA so no gain. My total retirement now is 1187.77 plus 136.00 disability plus $732.00 SS with the total being $2055.77 so I am not living high on the hog. If the EX was gone I would be getting nearly $1000.00 more in my retirement. Her total retirement is nearly $1600.00 a month with little expense since she lives with Eric who pays for mostly everything.

February 2, 2018

11:05AM Took the battery out of the alarm in the bedroom, I think that is located just over the door and if the door is open and there is smoke from cooking in the kitchen it hits it.
11:30AM We finally got to sit down and eat our lunch.
3:00PM Eric went home so he could be there in time to pickup Seth at 6PM.
4:00PM Removed the fire alarm from the ceiling just inside the door and placed it at the rear of the room. Will have to make sure the door leading to the bedroom is closed when I cook. Will get me a small fan to place in the window in the kitchen so it will take any smoke out of the kitchen.

2:00PM Talked to a Trust Company in Nashville, TN about MH insurance and they said ask a neighbor so I asked Steve and he does not have insurance but gave me a number to call that used to insure them.
3:00PM Water is back on. Called the local insurance that Steve gave me and they said that they can insure me but it would cost around $2000.00 a year. It is cost prohibited to buy insurance.
7:00PM Barb called. She wanted to talk to me before Dana came by from the grocery store.
7:40PM Kit called and we talk for over an half hour. Walt is at one of his meeting with his buddies. I had forgot that this is the first Monday of the month and I missed the LARC meeting. Will have to send in my dues.
9:30PM Bella and I went to check the mail. Believe it or not, I received my tax bill for my car for the second half of 2017 for $114.00. Do you think I will ever pay them since I will be transferring my title to Florida and getting my Florida registration. Won't need the tax receipt to get my license next year.

February 6, 2018

9:30PM Bella wanted to go outside and Steve came over and said that there has been a Opossum running around the neighborhood and it is very aggressive. He cautioned me to watch when I let Bella outside. I normally don't take Bella out at night except when we go to bed. Will have to keep an eye out when I take her out at bedtime.
11:55PM Messaging with Troy on FB about his trip to Okeechobee for the festival. It is March 1 through March 4. Told him that he and his friends could come here on their way down and on their way back. He said he would get back to me on the body count of who is coming. I don't figure he is driving so it will depend on who furnishes the transportation. I can sleep two in the bedroom, one on the couch and a couple on the living room floor.

May 26, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:00AM Hear Eric out mowing the lawn. Windy and cloudy.
11:00AM Up and about. Overcast, expecting heavy rain later today from tropical storm, Alberto.
1:30PM Eric left for home. He wants to stay ahead of the rain.
4:03PM Eric text, he has gotten home OK, hit a little rain but not much.
4:15PM Started to rain very hard, but didn't last to long, back to just overcast.
4:30PM Fixed myself a steak with raw onions.
6:00PM Got some news today. It seems a very old acquittance is not well and may not be with us long. It appears to be terminal. Don't know whether to be happy or cry, she will be suffering a lot. I wonder if anyone else has been told? She hasn't mentioned it on any of her calls over her cell phone. It's a shame she doesn't use her computer to get on line, I would know a lot more. I wonder if the illness will exacerbated the paranoia
11:00PM Watching TV, the movie "Oliver Twist" pretty good movie.

May 27, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
Note:There is a gadget on line that lets you get any cell phone number in a location if you know any cell phone number that makes calls from the same cell tower. Then all you have to do is put in a code and dial the number you want to listen to and it connects you and you can monitor that cell phone. It has been difficult in the past to do this but with this new gadget it will make the finding of numbers easier when someone changes their number. It is very pricey but I think it was worth every penny. I know back in the days when you had to hard wire to monitor a telephone like I did before cell phones.

9:00AM Up and about, overcast and light wind this morning. Couldn't figure out why Bella was so jumpy, thought it might be the thunder during the night, then noticed that she was out of water, so I filled up her water and she was OK. Will have to watch her water a little closer. If I don't maybe she will go on strike and not love me anymore.
12:00PM Had a light lunch, had some cornbread that I had baked and a few strips of bacon w/glass of orange juice.
1:00PM Walgreen's called and reminded me of a prescription that was due and needed picked up. Will go by on Tuesday when I go to Watson Clinic for my semi annual check up. I know she will want a report on my sex life. I think she must be making a survey on old men, lol, no problem here.
2:30PM Eric called and he was very upset, someone is reporting to the EX that I am making remarks about her on my blog and now she is raising hell with him and said she is going to call the police and have Johnathan kicked out of the house. Eric said he doesn't have anywhere to go except back to WV if she keeps it up. I am sorry but it is probably her -- sister or sister in law that is reading my blog and reporting it to her.
3:00PM Forgot I had picked up a power ball the other day while at the store and thought I would see if I won my million dollars. Well, it wasn't a million. ? Wouldn't want anyone to find out that I gamble. I shouldn't gamble, LOL. Wonder how I would look in something like this?
4:00PM Having some chili for supper. Still no sun but temperature is nice, 78 degrees but the humidity is 92%. President Trump and I have something in common, we are both great leaders and good conservatives. I am going to register to vote so I can help put a good conservative in the Senate from Florida.

Note: Was talking to a friend and he is interested in try to take my blog and maybe putting together a book. He also wants to write about my years in the Navy. He has written several screen plays and thinks he could put something together. I think that might be fun to just see how he does it.

8:00AM Up and about, put both flags out for Memorial Day. Steve asked me yesterday if he could borrow my Navy flag because he wants to take pictures of US flag, Navy flag, Army flag, Air force flag, and Marine flag. He didn't say what it was for but we will see.
9:00PM Beautiful day, hot and windy but the sun is shinning. Back to bed. Nothing to stay up for.
11:30AM Back up. Took Bella outside. She just doesn't like it outside because of the heat.
12:30PM Gave Bella a treat and she drank a bunch of water and she threw up on the floor. I hope she isn't sick. Have a vet appointment on Monday June 4th and have her checked out and get her shots and to be groomed. It may be she just to hot with all the fur she has now.
3:00PM Decided to have a few pork skins and glass of beer. Taste pretty good. Going to have steak for supper.

Please read and enjoy my blog, but remember if you read, embellish and repeat your version, you won't be hurting me in any way you will making someone's life miserable. If you have something to say to me please feel free to Message me on FB or send me an email and tell me what you think of me, are you a coward? If you don't agree or like my politcal views try to change my mind. I love to tell Liberals how misguided they are. email cn8ff@aol.com

My A1C has dropped to 8.1 from 9.1 that it was the last time I went to the clinic. The clinic is going to set me up with a referral to a podiatrist for checking my feet and cutting my toe nails. The VA butchered up my toes the last time I went. Got an email which I read while in the clinic that Express Script is re sending my insulin that was lost somewhere in transit and did not arrive.

3:30PM Don't know what happened. Was listening to the rain and watching TV and just woke up. Must have just dozed off because the TV and my computer had both gone to sleep, so I know I was out for at least an hour. Just one of those lazy sleepy days.
4:00PM Watching Judge Judy.
5:00PM "The Five" is on but seems all they can talk about is what Roseann had to say. There is a difference between Whites that are prejudice and Blacks that are prejudice, Whites fear and don't trust Blacks but Blacks hate whites. 7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a short time. She said it was nice in WV but hot. It has been in the 70s most of the day and has rained over 3 inches today.

12:00PM Had some cereal for lunch. Have gotten a couple of those robo calls again this morning, seems to be a daily action, a couple robo calls before noon.


I know someone is reading my blog and passing on things I am saying to an individual that gets very upset about my remarks and takes it out on people around them that have nothing to do with me or my blog. I pity them for remarks made to them, nothing is their fault. The fault lies in the one that is trying to stir up trouble. If anyone does not like what I say on my blog have the backbone to confront me. You have my email and my cell phone number. Saying that, I will say only that if anyone really wants to know the real story please to: Read This and listen to the recordings. That's how it began in September 2013


5:00PM Fixed Chicken Alfredo for supper.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while. Still have water getting into my Florida Room. I am going to have to do something to stop the water from coming under the door.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson" Seems that everyone is talking about nothing else but what Roseanne said, and then what all these other stupid women are saying.
8:30PM Finished vacuuming the water up in the Florida Room. I got about 2 gallons of water. That really isn't very much water when spread out over a floor.
11:00PM Watching Shannon Bream.

June 1, 2018
I was told that this -- is tracking me. With someone like this I don't need any more enemies. LOL


1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. Just a month and will be getting ready to go to WV.
9:30AM Received a call from Express Script and it went to voice mail. When I listened to the voice mail Express Script gave me a number to call 1 844 225 2448 but when I call the number it said it was not a working number.
1:00PM Called the number I have listed for Express Script and talked to them about why they called and they had no record of the number that I was given and why they called. Looks like it could be one of those robo or scam calls using a new technique.
2:00PM Fixing myself something to eat for breakfast/lunch. Watching FOX news, they are talking about the visit from North Korea with number two army. Looks at the counter and there were several hits on my blog last night just before midnight. Looks like someone is reading my blog. Can't see why,it is very boring unless you are looking for some dirt you can use to stir up shit.
3:00PM Thunder and lightening and rain on and off all afternoon.
4:00PM Just watching some TV and took my vacuum cleaner apart and cleaned it. At first I could get it to come open but finally made it and cleaned it.

10:00PM Put the inquiry up on FB about the class reunions on July 21, 2018. Maybe I will get some response back. It is just to big a job for Millie to do anymore without help.
11:00PM Watching Shannon Bream, some of the best news on TV at the end of the day.

June 2, 2018

1:00PM Fixed me something to eat. I had one of those Jimmy Dean steak and eggs.
2:00PM Took Bella outside and she ran around in the grass for a while. Checked to see if there are any more cucumbers. Didn't find any more cucumbers and the leaves are getting yellow spots. Lots of yellow blooms and little cucumbers but I don't know if the vines will last long enough for the cucumbers to mature.
3:00PM Watching a western movie about a cattle drive, "Canyon River". Temperature 91 degrees Humidity 55%, light breeze 4-6 mph with clouds.

8:00PM Watching Watter's World.
9:00PM Watching an old movie and working in research. I have come to the conclusion that Levi C. Stiles b. 1817 is the --son of William Stiles and not his son Stephen althoughStephen is listed as Levi's father on his death certificate. I think his wife or one of his children just gave them the wrong name for his father since his father died in 1852 nearly 50 years before Levi's death. Stephen was 17 years old than Levi was born and died 21 years before Levi thus the confusion of Levi's father and mother's name.

3:00PM Watching the movie "Stage Coach".
4:00PM Text with Eric and he said he and Josh were going to the eye doctor for examine tomorrow. I know Eric has needed glasses for reading for a while.

She doesn't have to worry, I won't be a friend to Barb on FB because I don't want to upset her because I won't run my FB to satisfy Wendy and her very extreme liberal views and hate for Trump. That's why I unfriended Wendy and Bob because they both drink the liberal kool aid.

I told her about Wendy warning me if I wanted to be friends with Barb to send her a request to be friends but I could not put anything on my FB page that would upset Barb. I won't befriend Barb because I am not vindictive like Wendy. Wendy is her grandmother, "The Madam" through and through. I should know very well about vindictive women.

9:30PM Tried to call Millie again, and still no answer. Will have to wait until she decides to call me again. She knows that I talk to Barb at 7pm every night, so why would she call me twice within 15 minutes just after 7pm.

She can't depend on Dana to going or do anything for her since she is off for the summer and is gone most of the time to their camp in Pennsylvania.
It is going to get to the point that Barb will not be able to go unless someone goes with her. She says that it is getting more difficult for her to drive in heavy traffic, such as around the malls or if it is raining.

Found out that I could not make an appointment due to the overload and I would have to ask for VA approved civilian examination. They said that I could then make an appointment to take the prescription for glasses to Tampa VA at the University and then they would make my glasses. This looks to me to be a run around to get glasses made. I may just make an appointment through Watson Clinic to have my eyes examined and then take the prescription to Tampa VA. Will have to see.
3:30PM Leaving for the DMV to get my driver license. 4:30PM Got my Florida driver license and registered to vote. I couldn't indicate my political party, the lady just changed my voter registration from WV to FL so I assume I am registered as a Democrat in Florida.

11:00AM Up and about.
12:45PM Called Express about my insulin. They said it was shipped yesterday and gave me the tracking number.

2:00PM Got a message from Billie's daughter wanting to know if I knew was in charge of the correspondence for SHS class54. I told I would try to find out. Seems they sent her a car after Billie died and she wanted to thank them but there was no name or return address.
3:15PM Called Millie and asked if she would know who it is for the class of 1954. It used to be Walter Warth but Walter died a few years ago.
4:00PM Sent out an inquiry on Alumni FB page to see if I could find out about 1954 class.
5:00PM The package with the Insulin came and while I was out was talking to Carlos and inquired if he would know of anyone that would like to clean my house on a monthly basis. I think I can keep it up and get a good cleaning once a month. If she would work out and we could come to some sort of an agreement I would have her come possibly once a week.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while, she was telling me how bad the flooding is, her road was washed out but she can still get through, she has a 4W drive and it is high so she didn't have any problem getting in. She said she will have to call the county because her access road is a county road. She also told me about the wreck at Rt50/SR98 where two people were killed. It was Michael Moore, 48, and his daughter, Braylie Moore, 17, both of Shinnston. I know a Michael Moore which is Betty Moran's step son in law. Will have to call Betty and find out unless I can get the information from the obituary.
9:00PM Watching FOX news and all anyone has to talk about is how terrible Trump is and how they are treating the children. I don't give a damn about these kids, their parents and other adults drug them across Mexico just to try to drag them across the border thinking that they can stay. Just put them all back on a bus and take them back to the border and kick them out. Build a wall big enough and high enough to keep the blood sucking people out of our country. This cover of Trump and the little girl is a complete lie and since I voted for Trump I hate kids, and I am a Nazi.

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, hot day.
12:00PM Had a couple barritos for lunch.
2:00PM Millie called me about the people in charge of the class of 1954.
4:45PM Called Beverley Paushel and talked to her for a while. Bev has been in the hospital because of a fall. She says she is getting along OK now but she still has to have a nurse come in and check on her weekly.
5:45PM Called Betty Moran to check if the man, Michael Moore, could be her step son in law and she said it was not. Michael Moore was the man that was killed on US50 yesterday. We talked for about 45 minutes. Have to go see Betty the first week I am back in WV because she is leave around the 14th of July to go visit Susan.
5:00PM Made some pepperoni rolls and put them in the oven.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while.
8:00PM Watching Watter's world and at 9pm will watch Greg Gutfield show.
10:00PM Watching a movie.

June 24, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
4:00AM Stayed up and worked some stations operating Field Day. 20 meters was open all night so FD should have been very good. Last night 20 was open east of the Mississippi and later moved to to the west. About 3am 20 shifted back to the north east and was open from Maine to as far west as IA. Going to bed.
6:16AM Forgot to close the shades on the window over the radios and when the sun came up it shined in my eyes and woke me up. Went to bathroom, closed the shades and went back to bed.
12:00PM Back up and about, took Bella outside.
1:00PM Fixed some tea and had a couple breakfast burritos.
3:00PM Temperature hit 100 degrees, the alarm went off on my weather station.
5:00PM Heated up some the spaghetti from a couple days ago, still very good. Watching a Audie Murphy movie.
7:00PM Called Barb, and accidentally got around to politics and of course Barb had to tell me about how much Trump lies about everything. I just wish my sister wouldn't believe what the liberals feed her. Of course, she only watches national news, ABC, NBC, CBS and we conservatives know how the national news leans. Just like they jumped on the Time Magazine and the little girl. I watch NBC news everyday so I know what and how they say it. All of these liberals just can't get over Hillary's defeat. I have lived through many presidents and some did things I did not like but I didn't spend my days and night crying about and all of them were my president and I supported them and I didn't like what they did I voted against them and their follows the next election. Remember Trump is your president so help him as much as possible and if you don't like him or his party, vote them out at the next election.
9:00PM Raining on and off all evening. Temperature is now 74 degrees.

June 25, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
8:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
9:00AM Going to Wells Fargo Bank to send money to Tyler.
9:20AM Wells Fargo says they can't transfer money to a Bank Of America and sent me to the Bank of America bank and they told me Bank of America could not accept cash on an account that I am not on directly and advised me to go back to Wells Fargo. Went back to the Wells Fargo and we settled to send a cash transfer money order and it cost me an extra $25 to send but they would quarantine that the money would be there by the end of the work day.
10:25AM Left the Wells Fargo and text Tyler to start watching his account and it would be there by 5PM.
10:32AM Tyler text that the money was in his account. Thank goodness.
11:00AM Went to McDonald's and had breakfast.
11:30AM Went to grocery store to pick up a few things.
12:15PM Home and putting groceries away. Had some jello and a glass of orange juice and watching TV and relaxing. Probably take a nap sometime this afternoon.
4:00PM Looked out the window and there was Carlos' daughter was running around the neighborhood in a very skimppy bikini. Of course, I enjoyed watching her running around have naked.
5:00PM Went out to bring the recycle container in and it had not been emptied. I had put a very small metal grill pieces in it so that could have been why they did not take it. This is the second time and there was no reason the last time. I just took it in and put it back out the next week and they took it.
5:25PM Called Betty Jean and we talked for a while. She seems to be getting along well.
7:00PM Was going to call Barb and went to the bedroom to get the house phone and Barb called. We talked for a short time, she said Wendy was there so we didn't talk long.
9:00PM Going back and forth to the news and then other channels because I didn't want to see all of the repeats on Trumps rally tonight.

June 26, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
12:00PM Had glass of orange juice.
1:00PM Temperature is 98 degree and very sunny. Had some lunch
3:25PM Called Lakeland Waste collection and told the young lady (did not catch her name) that my recycle was not picked up on Monday and she asked my address and she told me that their records show that my recycle was picked up. I informed that it was not because I had just brought back in and it had not been emptied. She first asked if I was sure I had it at by 7am on Monday and I told her I had put it out around 2:30am at the street with six other containers (my neighbors) and then she said she checked and the GPS said my container had been picked up at 7:45am and I told it had not been picked up. She became very upset and said that my recycle had a sensor in it and it showed that it had been turned up and dumped. I assure her it had not and she said their system did not fail and it indicated that my recycle container had been had been turned up and dumped. She was very rude. If this happens again I will not talk to her I will call her supervisor. I told her it did not have to picked up today but I would put it out again on Sunday. 4:10PM Talked to Joe Bauer at State Farm about insurance on the Honda and he is going to send me a quote by email now or in August and he said I could bet State Farm for about $319.00 every six months. If that is true I will probably change to State Farm from Progressive at the end of August.
4:30PM Noticed that the A/C isn't working correctly.
5:00PM The temperature is up to 87 degrees in the house and the A/C isn't putting out any cold air. Talking to Sam on the radio and he recommended Payne A/C so I called them and talked to Monty 863 686 6163 and they are sending out a technician.
5:50PM Technician arrived. He checked the A/C and he said it had a bad starting capacitor ($125.00) plus labor, around $200.00) He said that the compressor was not starting every time, sounds normal, have had this problem with other A/C units.
7:00PM The MH is back to nice and cool. Called Barb and she and Wendy had just finished supper. We talked for a short time.
8:00PM Millie called and and I told her about everything that is going on.
9:15PM Carlos just dropped by and brought me a Puerto Rico bear, pretty good beer. He wouldn't come in, he said he is waiting for someone to come home and while we were talking someone pulled in in his red pickup. Watching Tucker Carlson that I recorded and now catching up.

June 27, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, the right of way has been mowed. I will try late today to see if I can get my grass mowed. Will see what I feel like just before dark. A/C has been working great since the repairman was here yesterday. Let's hope it keeps working for quite a while so I don't have to worry about it.
12:00PM Carlos is sitting outside in his carport. He looks like he is comfortable. I sure don't want to sit out in the heat but I assume Carlos must like the hot weather.
5:25PM Betty Moran called and said they had been hit by a strong wind or a tornado and the tree was down at my old house. She didn't know exactly which one or how bad. She was very excited and I talked to for a while until she calmed down. I think she called me by mistake, I think she was calling her daughter Barbara and called me by mistake.
5:45PM Called Barb and told her what had happened and to see if she had any bad winds or storms at her house and she said that all she had was a lot of rain.
5:50PM Called Eric and let him know what is going on.
7:00PM Barb called back and said she had not seen anything on the local news about any damage in Bridgeport.
7:30PM Went out and got the lawnmower out and mowed the side of the MH but did not trim or in the back. Carlos came by and we talked for a while and he came in and we talked. 9:30PM Dave Hayes put up some pictures on FB about the damage at he house in Bridgeport, 170 Pennsylvania Ave. It appears the Golden Maple that I planted in 1978 split and one side of the tree fell on the garage. Couldn't see in the picture how much damage there was to the house. Possibly just the gutters around the garage.
10:00PM Sent pictures to Eric, and Tyler.

June 28, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
2:00AM Found a video of storm damage yesterday in Bridgeport. Looks like the electric pole beside Naomi's house on Cherry Street was blown down in the driveway of the house just above my old house and the house on the upper side of Cherry had a fire. Looks to me to be a generator beside the house caught on fire.




10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, looks like we might be getting some more rain.
12:12PM Called Betty Moran to see how things were in Bridgeport. She said that the fire was a washer/dryer that caught on fire in the house on Cherry Street. She also said that Naomi had some electrical damage in her bathroom in the basement. Looks like the storm caused an electrical surge or it was lightening and it ran into the two houses and blew things up. She also told me that the wind took the top out of the pine tree and she thinks they are going to dig it out and take it down. She said that the city was there cutting up and cleaning up the trees and debris I will have to go by and take some pictures while I am home. (ha ha, I should say, while I am back in Bridgeport, it isn't home anymore.)
1:00PM Called Barb and told her what I had seen and what Betty had told me. Barb said that there was an article in the newspaper this morning.
1:30PM We had a about 30 minutes of rain and it rained .42 inches in a short time.
2:00PM Some very loud boom, boom, boom music coming from Carlos' MH. It has to be his daughter and the boy that is there play the music very loud but all I her is the loud lower drums. It is actually vibrating my windows. I will be glad to see the kids leave and the noise will be gone also. It isn't Carlos fault, I know how teenage kids can be. He probably is glad that they take the noise outside so he can't hear as much.
4:00PM Called Ruby Casto and we talked about the storm and she said that Barbara Hamilton told her that there were a couple trees down on Center Street also.
7:00PM Barb called on the house phone while I was in the bathroom and we talked for a little while. Nothing much going on.
9:25PM Millie called and she was telling me that Judy Cunningham had called her and asked her to come to her house for a party next week. She also had invited me but, of course, I can't drive over 900miles for a party.

June 29, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. Took Bella outside before bed and went to the PO to mail a letter and a check for my dues to NCVA. There was a card from Ceil with a $25.00 gift card from Walmart.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, cloudy overcast day, with some light rain.
12:00PM Had some cereal for lunch, not very hungry.
1:00PM Watching President Trump making a speech and was a little bored so thought I would post on Facebook about how CNN vs FOX on the coverage of the speech. Leah Luthen took offense with her Liberal views and I carried it on just to see how far she would go with her outrage. She did not disappoint me. Like all liberals she couldn't stick to the subject when they have no reason in their answers and just want to yell and use four letter words to express themselves. I egged her on for a while and when she just started using four letter words I told her I was finished.
4:00PM Watching Judge Judy.
5:00PM Watching "The Five".
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while.
9:00PM Seems Leah Louthen has taken offense with my story I put on Facebook about "Squatters". She accused me of be a bigot and racist. I made the remark that this is one of the ways the muslims used to obtain property in Flint, MI until 2014. She is such a hard head liberal who has drunk the Hillary koolaid. No way to change her mind. We went back and forth for a couple hours.
10:00PM Watching Ingraham on FOX. Took Bella outside but she didn't do anything.
11:00PM Watching Sharron Bream on FOX, just got tired of Leah on FB.

12:00PM Had some lunch and took Bella outside. It is raining lightly but she wanted to go out.
1:30PM Called Sue Nay and we talked for a while, her phone was acting up and very noisy but we managed. I told her when I was coming to WV and I would call and go see her and John. If I don't go see all my old friends I may never see them again. I don't know how I will be in another year and may not be able to travel. I believe that this may be the last time I will get to see Barb. She is 88 now and she may live for quite a while but I figure that she will probably be in a home in Ohio or living with Wendy.
4:00PM Had a ham sandwich and some mashed potatoes. Have drunk all of my milk and orange juice so will have to go to the story tomorrow and pick up a little something to tide me over until next Tuesday when I leave. My retirement is in the bank but probably the Social Security won't be in the mail until Tuesday or Wednesday.
6:50PM Barb called and we talked for a while, it has been raining on and off all day, no sunshine today. Bob and Wendy are there and Bob is getting everything to work for her, Internet, Netflix, Amazon Movies and all of her other things she has on her TV.

2:00PM Eric and I both took time and paid all of our bills on line.
3:00PM Eric decided to go home and stop at the Jiffy Lube in North Lakeland and get his oil changed. I had a coupon to get $20 off on a lube at Jiffy Lube.
5:00PM Called Eric and he said it cost him $77 for his oil change. They told him that the Jiffy Lube that he went to in Lakeland did not recognize the coupon that I had gotten in the mail. Watching "The Five".
6:30PM Going to pick up the mail, my registration card came in the mail. When I got back Millie had called so I called her back.

7:03PM I called Dana and she is in PA at their camp and told her that she should check on her mother.
7:14PM Barb called back and said that Dana had called and she was coming home and would be there in a couple hours.
7:16PM Called Wendy and told her that Barb was sick and that she should check on her and that Dana said that she would be there in a couple hours.

9:30PM Called Barb back to see if Dana had gotten there and how she was feeling. She said she got some sleep and she felt a little better. Dana was not there yet and I told her to have Dana call me no matter what time it was when she gets there. I don't expect Dana to show up until probably around midnight or even tomorrow morning.
10:44PM Barb called and said Dana is there. I hope she feels better tomorrow. I am afraid that this may be just the beginning of her health starting to decline.
11:00PM Text Wendy and let her know what is going on.

July 5, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.

July 6, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
7:30AM Up and about, for some reason I just woke up and was not sleepy.
8:00AM Turned on TV and started watching "Fox and Friends". Seems all they can talk about is the women on the Statue of Liberty and the kids in the cave in Tia land. Not say much about the kids on the border for a few days. They must be getting them back with their parents. Of course, they had to run the speech of Trump last night.
10:00AM Had some cereal, raisin brand w/banana for breakfast.
12:00PM Cleaned water out of Florida Room, had about an inch. Swept most of it out and then used the shop vac for the rest. Check to see if I could figure out why, all of a sudden in two days had water in the Florida room. I think the down spout had come out of the drainage pipe and that could have been the reason there was so much water on the concrete between the Florida room and the work shop. Checked, there was no water in the work shop. Brought the two coolers from the work shop storage into the Florida room. Also got out the gasoline container so I can pick up some gas for the lawnmower when I go to fill up my tank before I start back to WV.
3:00PM Checked with the numbers I have listed to see where I can get a few sandbags. After a couple calls found out I will have to go to Mulberry, about 13 miles south of here to get sandbags and sand. The Fire and Rescue don't have sandbags anymore, you have to go the Highway Maintenance department to get them.
4:15PM Tried calling Vic WV8CC but all I got was an answering machine.
4:20PM Called Jim Martin and his wife, Rose answered the phone. Had a very bad echo on the phone, had to hang up and call back twice before I got rid of the echo. Jim and I talked for a while, he said he got the radio working that I gave him before leaving WV and he said he has been talking to a few guys on 80 meters. We also talked a little about Field Day and he said that the moved the location to Liberty High School area because no one is keeping the area on Lowndes High cleaned up and the grass has not been mowed, it is just growing up and not usable without a lot of work.
5:30PM Watching "The Five", had it recorded and will run through it and skip all of the commercials.
6:30PM Starting to get dark and looks like we age going to get a little rain. Hear thunder with some lightening in the NE.
6:45PM Looking at the Tampa Radar and it shows storms approaching from the NW toward Lakeland area.
6:50PM Barb called from her cell, she is in PA with Dana and she said she is feeling better and is going to Walmart with Dana.
9:20PM Millie called and we talked for a while. I think I am going to have trouble with Millie when I go back to WV. She is making plans for me to be around all the time I am home. I told her there are places I have to go to visit friends and she suggested that she go with me. I am not going to cater to her while I am there. I will be reasonable but she will be pissed because I am going to be gone somewhere most of the time.
10:00PM I have water in Florida room again from the rain tonight, about 1.5 inches of rain. Checked and it is seeping in around the door. I think maybe I can take plastic and use duct tape and seal around the door while I am gone.

July 7, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, looks like it is going to be a nice day.

3:00PM Everything has dried up so I put plastic on the lower part of the storm door and used duct tape. I hope the door is sealed and I can find out before I leave for WV.
6:00PM Had a large salad with chicken. Very good salad.

10:00PM Had no trouble and made good time until now. When I hit I77 and went through SC/NC was making good time so I figured I would drive through to WV tonight.

July 11, 2018
00:00AM When I ht I77 through VA to WV nothing but road repair.
1:00AM In places I was only moving at 24 mph tops for for up to 2 hours. 2:30AM Finally arrived at Barb's. Very tired and my arms are aching and am very hungry. Didn't stop because of the difficulty to get to a drive through because I couldn't go in to eat because of Bella. I didn't want to leave her in the car because of the heat.
3:00AM Took Meds, injection, going to bed.

Didn't work very well, only one made any altitude and drifted off, all the others just drifted for a short distance or got caught in trees, but it was a great idea.

July 20, 2018

9:45AM Barb called and left a voicemail so I called her back. They have her doped up and prepping her to go for some tests on her heart. I called her back and we talked for a short time.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Someone is using a chainsaw up on the hill somewhere. Don't know or can't see anyone out and around. It is very loud but can't tell exactly where it is coming from. It seems to be coming from beyond Dana's but it may just be echos off of the hill or buildings.
11:15AM Called Carlos and told him I was going to have to stay for another week because of Barb in hospital and asked if he could get someone to cut my grass. He said he and Steve would take care of it and not to worry. I told him that I would bring him and Steve some of this good WV food when I come back to Lakeland.
11:30AM Called Ceil and caught her at the bank and she said she would call me back this evening.

9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
11:00AM Leaving for Millie's to pick her and some deserts up for the lunch for the Class of 1953 at Jimmie's in Shinnston.
12:00PM Picked up Randall with Millie and arrived at Jimmie's.
2:00PM Had a great meal, baked steak, mashed potatoes, green beans and Millie had brought 5 different deserts.
4:00PM Took Randall and Millie home and going to UHC to see Barb.
5:00PM Barb said the doctor had come in earlier and said that they were going to send her home but didn't say when. They served her supper while I was there.
7:00PM Left for the farm and went to the store to pick up a few things.
8:00PM Kit called and we talked for a while, I had to talk to someone about how Wendy is acting. Wendy hates me so much that she will not come to Barb's and said she wouldn't come while I was here because I am sleeping in her bedroom. I thought that this is Barb's house and it is Barb's choice where people sleep. I told Wendy I would put on clean sheets for her and move to the other bedroom. I don't want to inconvenience her. She asked when I was leaving and I said that I would stay another week if Barb wants or needs me to stay. I said that I expect to stay to next Monday July 30th and she said, then I will come on Tuesday July 31st. If you would like to read what Wendy thinks of me just go the February 7, 2018 note. She attacked a friend of mine for his political views and to separate them the only thing I could do was "unfriend" one or the other and I chose my friend of 65years over her. She is as near a socialist that I know. Also I wonder if "persons with developmental disabilities" can plan and carry out the plans.
8:30PM Called Jennie and thanked her for taking flowers to Barb in the hospital. I brought the flowers and put them in water.
9:00PM Watching TV.

July 22, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
8:30AM Up and about, put Bella outside.
9:10AM Called Barb to see what the doctor was going to do and she told me he had been in and said that she is going to be released but he had to do something before she can come home. I told her to call me on the house phone because don't have a good signal on my cell this morning.
10:00AM Kit called and while we were talking Jessie and his daughter dropped by. He said he had cut the grass last night and came back this morning to spray weed be gone. He didn't know Barb was in the hospital. Kit said she would call me back later today.
2:00PM Talked to Barb and she had no idea when she was being released, so I told her to call me and I would come and get her.
2:50PM Barb called and said she was being release and for me to come and pick her up
3:35PM Arrived at UHC and called Barb and asked her to have the nurse to bring her down to the front door.
3:50PM The nurse brought to the car and we started home.
4:30PM Arrived back home and Barb is lying on the couch. She has a monitor on and has to go back to UHC and see the doctor on Wednesday at 3pm.
5:00PM Listen to Barb talk to Wendy and it appears now that I have agreed to leave on Tuesday Wendy doesn't know when she is coming. It appears to me that she is just trying to cause problems for me. I have never been involved with a so self absorbed, self centered individual in my life.
5:30PM Now it looks like Wendy is not coming until Barb has to go back to see Doctor Reddy but she won't know when she has an appointment with Doctor Reddy until she returns the monitor on Wednesday. Barb was talking about getting someone to come in and stay with her after I leave and until she has to see her doctor which could be next week depending on what they find on the monitor when she returns it, so I may be staying depending when and if "god" shows up. Of course, that is god with a small "g". Wendy wants to be here to go to the doctor with Barb. If she gives Doctor Reddy a bunch of shit he may not let her stay in the exam room with he and Barb.
7:00PM Wendy called and while she and Barb were talking she wanted to talk to me. She apologized for all of the back and forth and not making any decision about when she was coming. Also she and Kit must have had it out because she was pointing to Kit that all of this controversy was Kit's fault.
7:30PM Kit called and she was less aggressive also so it is finally settled, I am stay until July 30th and Wendy may be here on Sunday or Monday. I know she will bite her tongue and not say anything to me especially in front of Barb. I think Barb wants me to stay this week rather to depend on Wendy or Dana.
8:00PM I am planning to go to Morgantown tomorrow afternoon and Kaylee is coming and staying with Barb while I am gone. I may go again one day next week for an afternoon when Kaylee or Jenny can stay with Barb.

July 23, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, in bed.
10:15AM Up and about and took Bella outside. Taking shower getting ready to go to visit Tyler and Troy in Morgantown.
11:00AM Kelsie Parsons came to stay with Barb while I am gone.
1:00PM Going to Tyler's in Morgantown.
3:00PM Troy came over to Tyler's and had been to Kroger's to get Shrimp and pasta for Shrimp Alfredo. Tyler is cooking.
5:00PM We had a very good dinner.
6:30PM Heading back to Barb's.
7:57PM Arrived at Barb's, there was no one there with her. Kelsie was there earlier and then Jake came and later Jenny and her mother came up. They had left just before I got there. I had called Barb and told her I was on my way.
9:00PM Checked my email and Express Scripts had sent me an email that they had shipped my insulin pens. I called and they said that they could not stop the shipment. It was not to be sent until after August 1st. I called Carlos and asked if he could check tomorrow and if the package comes by UPS then he could put it in the refrigerator. I tried to call Steve and it went to his voice mail so I will call tomorrow and check them. If I can't get Steve or Carlos to pick up the insulin I will call late in the afternoon and see if someone at the office would check on it. If they don't get it I will just have to make do with what I already have on hand.
9:15PM Dana called and said she would be here to take Barb to her doctor appointment on Thursday at 10:30am. She must have heard that Wendy thinks she should get off her ass and take care of her mother even though Wendy said that she wanted to be with her mother when she saw the doctor because she wanted to make sure the doctor was doing what he was suppose to do for Barb. Looks like being here on Thursday is not convenient to her schedule.

July 24, 2018
1:00PM Meds, injection, to bed.
8:15AM Awake but still a little sleepy so turned on TV and went back to sleep.
10:10AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Barb up watching TV. She had already gone to get the newspaper. She says she has to walk so I won't stop her if she wants to walk. I will just have to keep an eye on her.
11:00AM Had a couple pieces of toast and a cup of coffee. Just sitting relaxing and watching TV with Barb. Tried to call Steve on the house phone and on the cell but no answer, will try later this afternoon after 5pm and maybe will catch Steve or his wife at home.
3:32PM Called Carlos and asked if he would get my UPS package and put the insulin in my refrigerator and he said he would. I really hope so. I called Express Script and told them of the situation with the UPS deliver and again they said that were sorry but the insulin was on auto fill, so I removed the insulin from the auto fill system so this won't happen again. The girl told me that she had received a notification of deliver of the package by UPS at 3:27pm.
7:30PM Tried to call Steve again and still no answer.
10:30PM Had a beef sandwich and some potato salad. Carlos said he would call me but no call as of yet.
11:00PM Barb to bed and I am watching FOX before going to bed.

July 25, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, in bed.
8:15AM Heard cell phone say I had a text from Carlos, didn't look at it, figured it was Carlos telling me he picked up my UPS package.
9:45AM Up and about, let Bella outside. Read Carlos text and he said it was not there.
10:15AM Received a text from Steve that he had gotten my UPS package. Text him back and asked that he take it out of the package and put my insulin in the refrigerator.
10:20AM Text Carlos telling him Steve had my package.
11:00AM Steve text back he had taken it out of the package and put it in his refrigerator. Great. I text both of them and thanked them and told them "thank God for good neighbors".
1:00PM Dana came by for a few minutes and then went home to do laundry. She did not volunteer to take Barb to the hospital to remove the monitor. She did say she would be here tomorrow morning to take Barb to the doctor.
1:15PM Wendy called and talked to Barb and said she would be here Monday. I am planning to leave before she gets here and going to Tyler's to stay the night before I go back to Florida.

Note: I just can't understand either of these girls. Their life is more important than their mother's. Being here I didn't hesitate for a minute to cancel everything I was doing just to make sure Barb was OK and I will stay to that time when it becomes convenient to them to take care of their mother. Barb thinks that the only thing these two have any interest in, is sell the farm and get the money and put her in a nursing home. I really hope that this is not the case, for Barb and the two girls.

3:00PM Took Barb to UHC and they removed the monitor and pads and sent her back home. Arrived back home around 4pm.
6:00PM Barb prepared the meat and I did the rest and prepared spaghetti for supper. Barb called Dana and she came and ate and then went back home. Dana is supposed to take Barb to see Dr Reddy tomorrow morning at 10:39am.
9:00PM Barb and I watched TV
11:00 Barb went to bed and I watched Shannon Bream.

July 26, 2018

11:30AM Leaving to go to the store and pick up some meds for Barb and some Oliverio's peppers/spaghetti sauce/pizza sauce to take back to FL with me.
1:00PM Stopped by ACE Hardware and picked up some caulking compound. Called Bev to make sure she was home.
1:30PM Arrived at Bev's and we talked for a while when her son Joey came by.
4:50PM Left Bev's and tried to call Millie, no answer, and dropped by Millie's but no body was home.
5:00PM Back at Barb's, watching evening news. Dana not here she went home as soon as she dropped Barb off. Barb says the doctor told her to go back to doing things a normal and gave her an appointment for next Thursday. When Wendy finds out she may or may not come on Monday. I know if she is here for Barb's doctor's appointment she will go back home immediately after the appointment. All she wants to do is just raise hell with Dr. Reddy. She thinks she knows just what the doctor should do. I feel that anything short of a pace maker or something similar Barb will not improve.
6:00PM Fixed myself a large salad for supper.
7:00PM Millie called and I told her that I had stopped by her house and asked if she wanted to go to Jimmie's tomorrow night for a Rosie.

10:45AM Took Bella outside and she did her business.
11:00AM Had a peace of bread and a cup of coffee.
12:15PM Barb back home. Wendy called and she said she would be here on Tuesday but she was leaving after Barb goes to the doctor on Thursday. She says she had important obligations to take care of in OH. I figured she would leave as soon as she could regardless how Barb is. I can't stay any longer I have to be back in Lakeland by Friday August 4th because I have a VA doctor's appointment. I am going to Morgantown and stay with Tyler on Monday night and leaving on Tuesday and won't get home until Thursday taking two days to get there. Coming up from FL and driving straight through almost was to much for me. I am still suffering from pains in my left arm and shoulder. It will finally get better.
4:30PM Went and picked up Millie and we went to Jimmie's for supper, I had a Rosie and Millie had a steak sandwich.
7:00PM Went back to Millie's, she insisted that I stay late.

4:00PM Tyler ordered in Chinese, also left a doz pepperoni rolls on the counter for the boys.
6:00PM Just relaxing and enjoying a quite evening. Tyler is with friends in the basement composing music. One boy is rapping and Tyler is composing. I think that is what you call it. I know nothing about any of the modern music world.
11:00PM Talked to Troy for a couple hours tonight, really enjoyed talking to him.

July 31, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, to bed.

7:00PM Arrived at Motel 6 in Richburg, SC went to bed early.

August 1, 2018
9:00AM Up and about, loaded the car took Bella outside and left for home. Had breakfast at McDonald's in Richburg.

Note: Most of the trip went very well until I decided to go around Orlando and hit some very heavy rain and ended up taking the toll road and hitting I4 about 40 miles east of Lakeland. Got home at 7:30PM and let everyone that I had arrived home OK.

7:30PM Checked the A/C and it was not on so checked it out and resent the humidity and it worked very well. Set the temperature and now it is OK. Turned on the water and turned on the electric to the hot water tanks.
8:00PM Steve came over and gave me my insulin and a couple containers of pills sent by UPS while I was gone.

August 2, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, to bed.
9:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, sunny day so far.
11:00AM Had something to eat. Have to go to the store and the post office. Have to take a shower and get ready. Temperature is 93 degrees and sunny so far, cloudy and looks like it may rain.
1:00PM Called Fox Plumbing about replacing the commode in my bathroom. He said he would furnish the commodes for approximately $375.00 each so I told him to bring two commodes and install two chair height/comfort toilets in both bathrooms. Will also have him look at putting in a shower in the front bathroom. It may or my not be cost productive to replace the bathtub with a shower.
7:00PM Talked to Barb. She went to Dr. Reddy this afternoon and when she got home Wendy just packed up and went home. The doctor gave her Amiodrone which is an Iodine based medication to control the rhythm of the heart. He said she should try the medication to correct the problem and if that does not work then consider a pace maker. She has fears of side effects of the medication. I think it depends on how she can tolerate Iodine. She said she is going to talk to Jennie today to see if she can get someone to stay with her since her daughters don't seem to care. All they worry about is Barb being sick interferes with their lives and plans.
8:00PM I talked to Ceil and she said that Gene Rogers has had people taking care of his mother for several years and he could possible help Barb find someone to stay with her. I know Barb does not want someone to live in because she just likes to do things herself but the time has come to have help only if it is just a companion. I know it will cost Barb around $10 an hour but it is Wendy's and Dana's money so spend it, maybe it will wake them up.
10:00PM Didn't do much today, got everything into the house but have not put anything away.

August 3, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, have about an inch of water in the Forida room. Removed the plastic aroung the Florida room door, because is doesn't seem to be keeping the water out, so will have to find some way to get ride of the water.
12:00PM Going to Post Office to pick up my mail that they have been holding for me for the last two weeks.
1:00PM Back home, most of the mail was not of any importance. Received a bill from Harrison County Sheriff for $93.00 for taxes on my car. I called the Harrison County Assessor and asked about the tax bill and she said that the Assessor had contacted me and asked if I had moved when I sent them a change of address when I sold the house. I told her according to her that I had not yet transfered my auto to Florida so the bill for 2018 taxes on my car. I asked what would happen if I just didn't pay the tax because the only thing I need the tax receipt was to get my tag for my car and since the car was now titled and registered in Florida and I will not be paying the tax, and she said that is between you and the sheriff and hung up. LOL
2:15PM Going to VA clinic to get my toe nails cut.
3:00PM Finished at the VA clinic and have another appointment on February 4th 2019. They will notify me in February by mail to remind me.

August 4, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, felt very nice sitting outside while she did her business. I have stopped cleaning up after her because with all the rain we are having her droppings are gone by the next day. If it doesn't rain the sun dries it up by the next day. She is doing her business where I cut grass so I don't think it makes any difference.
12:00PM Had some cereal w/banana for lunch.
4:30PM Took Carlos a couple jars of tomatoes and peppers and a jar of tomato with bassel.

7:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Beautiful day.
8:10AM Fox Plumbing arrived to install two new commodes.
9:30AM Plumber says that the commode he brought to install in the front bathroom is a little large and will not fit against the wall correctly. He has to go back to the warehouse and pick up another style of tank which is thinner than the other and should fit correctly.
10:15AM Plumber returned with a new tank. It is going to cost me a few more dollars because of the new tank, nothing new. Nothing ever costs what the estimate is.
11:00AM Shane Ewin, my plumber, finished both of the commode installations. He did a very good job. I will have to clean up the floor when the sealant sets up. No hurry doing that. He did not make a big mess, just a little dirt on the floor which was a little dirty before he started.
12:00PM Have used both new commodes and it sure feels great not feeling like you are sitting in a hole. Easy to sit on and a lot easier to get up, just like sitting on a chair.
2:44PM Temperature just hit 100 degrees.
3:00PM Wind has picked up and hitting highs of 15 mph.
3:30PM Temperature has dropped to 87 degrees since the wind has increased and is coming from west and southwest, must be the sea breeze with clouds.

4:30PM Temperature now 98 degrees. Doesn't look like rain but everything looks right for rain.

I noticed that a man was running around cutting several lawns but I could not get his attention to see if he would do mine. I think he is the man that cuts the right of way. He is on one of those big mowers. Temperature is 98 degrees.
6:00PM Eric text and said he expected to be down this weekend.

She mentioned $75.00 on a biweekly basis. I don't think I will be able to handle that price but we will see after tomorrow.
7:00PM Called Barb, talked for a while. Asked her how she was doing and she said things were pretty good. Had a short conversation about Wendy. Seems Wendy just understand why Barb just doesn't come and go at will without taking Jenny with her when she shops. I understand, it is very tiring going places and walking around and around to find things. You are just worn out when you get back home. At least, with Jenny Barb doesn't have to drive or carry everything to the car and into the house by herself. Wendy and Dana are, out of sight out of mind.

1:00PM They are wrapping up. Looks like they did a pretty good job. I could not find sheets for the double bed so all they did was remove the sheets and put them in the washing machine. They also put all the rugs and other things in the washer and I will take them out later and put them in the dryer. The next time I will pick up the rugs before they come and wash and dry them so they can put them back down. They didn't do anything to the larger bedroom, no need to because it is not used. The only thing I had to call them on was Tiffany forgot to clean out from under my bed. She then cleaned under the bed. They only run a swifter on the hard wood floors but did clean the tubs and bathrooms very well. Washed out all of the trash cans after emptying them. The next time I will have them remove everything from the refrigerator and clean it out. I asked Kayla to come in the last week of September. I also gave Kayla all of the twin bed sheets that I had stacked up. Have been trying to get rid of them ever since I got here. Just have no use for twin bed sheets.
1:30PM They left. after I gave the $120.00 in cash. Kayla did not want a check because she said it would be difficult to cash, I think it is because she does not want any paper trail and I understand. Found my double bed sheets, just where I had put them so I wouldn't forget where they were, LOL, what's new for the old memory.
2:00PM Texting back and forth with Kayla, she is trying to fix me up with her grandmother, Maple Mallory. Maple is nice looking lady age 72 and I assume lives in Lakeland or Plant City. Will give it a thought, would be nice to have a local lady to talk to once in a while. Just have to make sure my and her politics agree, wouldn't want to run into a Liberal. She has put on her FB page that she is proud to be white and a southern girl. Will have to see.

4:00AM Bella is having a bad time. She is continuously scratching. Since she is in bed with me it keeps me awake. I think it has been caused by either the shampoo they used to wash her or a spray scent that they put on her. Got out of bed and gave her a bath with just warm water, no soap. I hope it helps her.
4:30AM Back to bed with Bella asleep on my bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. All she wants to do is roll in the grass. She acts like a dog that has been sprayed by a skunk and can't get rid of the smell. 12:00PM Fixed me some eggs, sausage and gravy for lunch.
1:30PM Called the Vet Hospital about Bella scratching. I asked what kind of shampoo they used and what kind of a spray. They assured me that the shampoo should not bother her and the spray is a raspberry scented spray. They said they would make a note about Bella so they would be more careful the next time and if she gets worse to bring her in and the Vet would look at her to find out the cause. I think it will be like always, Bella will get better by herself.
7:00PM Called Barb and she said she had been to see Dr. Reddy and he told her he would contact WVU Hospital and set up an appointment for her to be evaluated for the pacemaker. She will have an appointment and tests and then they will determine if she is a candidate for a pacemaker. That is what I told her would happen and will take more time and probably at least two trips to Morgantown for appointments and evaluation in the cardiac department of the WVU Hospital. They won't be in any hurry, she is 88 years old and is on medication for the situation and they may even determine that she is not a candidate for the procedure. Wendy thinks that she should go to Columbus to see a cardiologist and get things done more quickly.

3:00PM Eric just left for home. Before he left he cleaned the sealant off the lower part of the Florida room wall near the door and when it dries I will put some more sealant to try to keep the water from coming under the wall.
4:30PM Put some sealant along the wall of the Florida room. It has started to rain and the wind is blowing up to 15 mph. Will see if it leaks and lets water onto the Florida room floor.
6:00PM Eric text, he is home, just picked up Seth.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while, she is down in the dumps. She also said she had a head ache and had it all day. She is very upset because Dr. Reddy and the doctor from WVU Hospital have not called her about her appointment.

9:00PM Had the TV on pause and when I restarted it found out that John McCain had died. Maybe now we will get someone back in congress and they can go back to business. My prediction, the AZ Governor will appoint McCain's widow to replace him. She is a Trump hater also.
11:00PM Nothing but programming about John McCain dying and what a great man he was. I never thought much of him and will not change my mind now that he is dead. I suppose because we are both stubborn old men.

August 26, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, to bed.
9:30AM Up and about.
10:00AM Took Bella outside, temperature 91 degrees.
11:30AM Geno just came to the door. He wanted to contact Steve and I offered to let him use my cell because he could only text on his cell. Steve drove in while we were talking.

2:00PM Steve text me and wanted to know where my Navy flag was and wanted to know if he could borrow it or was I going to fly it for McCain. I told him I would not fly the flag for McCain, because I didn't like him or respect him when he was alive and I wouldn't display the Navy flag for him when he was dead. I loaned it to him and he is going to fly it at half mast for a couple days and if he feels that way I will let him use it.
4:00PM Just went back to FOX news and there had been a mass shooting in Jacksonville, FL, no further information at this time. Temperature is 97 degrees. FOX went back to talking about McCain.

Some people may not like or may be upset about what I have to say about John McCain but I did not like the man while he was alive and I can not be a hypocrite and change my feelings because he is dead.
Note:
I am really getting tied of hearing about John McCain. He is just another dead politician. He was only one of many that were POWs in Vietnam and I haven't seen all the hullabaloo over the others that were there. He was not a hero, he was just one of the unlucky to be captured in Vietnam. He married his first wife because she was young and beautiful and he wanted arm candy when he was a young Lieutenant at flight school in Pensacola. He was an Admiral's son and thought his shit didn't stink and a hot shot Naval Aviator. He was possibly the fault of an explosion on an aircraft carrier when it is possibly a rocket fell or was released from a plane and killed several and destroyed a lot planes. Of course, due to bad luck or hot shot flying he was shot down and was captured in Vietnam. He did spend nearly 5 years in captivity along with others. When he returned to the US he found out that his wife had been injured in a car accident and was in physical therapy at the same time as he was in therapy. She was no longer the young beautiful women, she was first in a wheel chair and was shorter and heavier but they did continue to stay married during the time he had several well documented affairs. When he got a little older he grew tired of his wife and felt she could not produce a young pretty image to aid him in his political expectations so he divorced her and marry a young beautiful cheer leader with a lot of money. He used her money and his public exposure and launched his political career. He should have retired years ago but the old stubborn SOB just hung on until the end.

11:00PM Watching odds and ends all evening, could not watch any news because nothing but coverage of McCain.
11:30PM Took the garbage out.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Cell phone range but when I look who called it said Phil Stiles but when I went to my call log his number was not there so I figured it was just a fluke of some sort. 10:00AM Up and about, Bella does not want to go outside, she even stayed in our bed.
10:30AM Looked out to see if Steve still has the flag up at half mast and neither flag is out. He still has a sign in his window of "McCain for President". Of course, that is just a keep sake.
11:00AM Fixed some cereal w/bananas. 1:50PM My cell just said I had a text from Kit but I could not get it to show on screen. Then realized the phone was locked up. couldn't get to work so turned cell off and then let it reset. Read the text from Kit and then saw I had a voice mail from Phil so listened. Still nothing on Phil's call on my call log.
1:55PM Called Phil and his wife answered and Phil was out so she said she would have him call me back when he gets home.
2:30PM Lots of kudos for John McCain.

Note:
I did not respect McCain as a man but do respect his position in Congress. I can not be a hypocrite and show the man respect in death. He should not be given more respect than any other Congressman or Congresswoman that serve their country in congress.
Just a few facts about McCain.
On July 3, 1965, Shepp and McCain married in Philadelphia The uncontested divorce became official in Fort Walton Beach on April 2, 1980.
In April 1979, John McCain began a relationship with Cindy Lou Hensley, an Arizona special education teacher and Hensley & Co. heiress.
On May 17, 1980 John McCain married Cindy Hensley
Cindy McCain since her father, Jim Hensley's death in 2000, has served as chairperson of Hensley & Company, the Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship founded by her father in 1955. By 2007, she had an estimated net worth of $100 million.
From 1988 to 1995, Cindy McCain founded and operated a nonprofit organization, the American Voluntary Medical Team, which organized trips by medical personnel to disaster-stricken or war-torn third-world areas. During this time, she became addicted to painkillers for several years and resorted to having a physician write illegal prescriptions on her behalf. A federal investigation into her illegal drug use ensued, but she reached an agreement with the government in which no charges were filed against her.
John Sidney McCain III retired from the United States Navy in April 1981. His last four years in the service had been spent as the Navy's liaison to the United States Senate.
He moved to Arizona with his new wife and, aided by a job from his father-in-law and the contacts it gave him, soon began a new career in politics.
In 1982, he was elected as a Republican to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona's 1st congressional district. After serving two terms there and making an impression as a rising political figure, he was elected U.S. Senator from Arizona in 1986.
He became one of the senators entangled in the Keating Five scandal of the late 1980s, but survived it and was re-elected in 1992 and 1998.
Although McCain suggested in his autobiography that months passed between his divorce and remarriage, the divorce was granted April 2, 1980, and he wed Hensley in a private ceremony five weeks later. McCain obtained an Arizona marriage license on March 6, 1980, while still legally married to his first wife.
People who are already married, even if they have been separated for a long period of time, cannot get married until they divorce their former spouse. Proof of dissolution (divorce), annulment, or death of previous spouse is required to show termination of any and all prior marriages. When in a legal marriage, changing your legal status from married to unmarried or single is obtained via a dissolution or divorce. Also it is terrible that political pressure caused President Trump to brake the rules covering the flag at half mast: In accordance to the law and rules covering displaying of the US Flag states: The flag will be "displayed at half mast on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress."


3:30PM Temperature 86 degrees and wind up to 15 mph out of the SW.
6:00PM Phil called and he wants me to write something up about the Stiles Reunion. I asked for him to send me notes and I will write a narrative and send it back to him. He also said that the Stiles reunion will be held in Pennsylvania near Lancaster, PA. He told me the name of the place but I did not retain the name of the town.
6:30PM Tried to call Millie and her cell said that the mail box had not been set up. Don't know the problem, will have to wait until she calls me.
7:00PM Called Barb, she told me that Dr. Reddy and the doctor from WVU decided that she should continue the medication for her heart because they feel she is to old to have the pace maker installed. She is not very happy about that. She says that she feels bad when she gets up but feels better after she takes her medication in the morning but it seems to wear off in the early evening. I told her to talk to the doctor and maybe he could break the dosage down and she could take it 2 or 3 times a day.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson" Lots of new information about Bruce Ohr and his questioning today. I don't think anything will come of any of all of this bull shit.
11:00PM Watching "Shannon Bream"

August 29, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, taking a shower and off to bed.
2:00AM While taking my shower the seat I have in the tub collapsed and I fell on my rump in the tub with my feet above my head. I could not get up. I struggled for nearly 20 minutes to remove the remains of the shower seat to get out from under me and out of the tub. I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to bet back to my feet. After I removed the remains of the seat I got myself turned over off my back and onto my knees and was able to get up and out of the tub. That seat is going to the garbage and I will have to get a better seat. The collapsed seat was rated at 250 lbs which was not sufficient to hold my weight.
2:30AM Finally in bed and not sleepy at all because I was a little upset from the fall.
10:30AM Up and about, I expected to have some aches and pains from my fall but doesn't seem to be any other effects. Removed the remains of the tub seat from the bathroom.

She said that she has no ride for this Friday to go to the hair salon and she said she was going to drive herself. She also said that she is going to the doctor next week and will bring up the suggestion I made of spreading out her meds over the day instead of just in the morning. The meds in the morning seem to help her but it wears off by the end of the day.
8:00PM Writing the narrative for Phil about the Stiles Reunion in July. I finished it and sent it to Phil for his editing. Watching "Tucker Carlson" and Millie called. Her cell is all screwed up and it tells you that the mail box is not set up and then disconnects when I call. I told her and she didn't seem to be concerned. Told her about me falling in the shower.

3:30PM Wendy text and said she just arrived at UHC.
4:35PM Wendy text that Dr. Reddy had been in and said that the fainting is caused by low BP and the pace maker would not help her. He is changing her meds and hope that will help. I have always thought that the fainting is caused by sudden low BP, like getting up to fast and you get dizzy because your BP drops suddenly. I hope he can get her BP straightened out. If not she will have to find someone to live in or go to a living assisted living institution. I don't want see that happen.
7:00PM Called Barb and we didn't talk very long. She said she was very sick this morning and fainted, she called Jenny and she insisted to call the emergency car and go to the hospital. Jenny called Wendy and Dana and told them. Dana took off work and came to the hospital. Wendy showed up around 3:30pm. Barb said she talked to the doctor and he is changing her medications to control her blood pressure but she won't be taking the new meds until this evening. She said the she would probably be in the hospital for 3 or 4 days. When I started to ask other question she go evasive and I asked if someone was there listening to what she was saying and she said Dana and Dwayne were there and could hear what was being said. I will talk to her tomorrow night and possibly no one will be there and she will be able to talk freely.

8:00PM Received an email from Wendy with the information on a place here in Lakeland. "Osprey Manor" I read all the information she sent me and I looked up the address, it is only 6 miles from me so it would be handy for me. They have High Rise apartments, and Villa cottages. I think Barb would like one of the cottages over the high rise. Prices run from $1195 for very small place to $1795 for a larger with one or two bed rooms. Only 2 bed room apartments in high rise. Got a couple pictures from street view on Google Earth and sent them to Wendy. I feel Wendy is trying to get Barb near me so I will be responsible for her. I don't mind but it could get to the case of the blind leading the blind. I would be happy to do it as long as I can and then I will be looking for someplace for me.

4:00PM Having thunder and slight wind, temperature has dropped to 84 degrees.
7:00PM Called Barb, she seems to be looking forward to possibly coming to Lakeland to the assisted living facility. I think she is just tired of coping with Dana and Wendy. She was alone yesterday except for Jennie and she talked to Dana for a couple minutes and Wendy called her and complained that it is raining on there vacation, so they are going to fly to Los Vegas to gamble. She know if she comes down here at least she will see me more than she sees her daughters and there will be people around. If she moves down here and it doesn't work out then she can come and live with me. I think we could get along, at least easier than she would get along with her daughters. I am not going to push one way or the other. I will do everything Wendy and Barb want me to do. When Wendy calls me when she gets back I will call and get an appointment for a visit If it works out for Barb, I may also consider it down the road.
10:00PM Watching "Laura Ingraham".
11:00PM Watching "Shannon Bream".

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about. Took Bella outside.
12:00PM Can't eat anything because I have labs at 2pm.
2:00PM Finished at the labs and going to Burger King for lunch and then to the bank to pick up cash to pay, Kayla when she comes to clean tomorrow. 3:00PM Went to Walmart to pick some groceries and a new set of fitted sheets for my bed. I only have two sets and one set is torn and doesn't fit correctly.
4:00PM Back home and put everything away.
5:00PM Watching "The Five". Kit texted that Wendy is putting her house on the market in 2020 and going to move south. She talked earlier as looking for a place near Bradenton, FL which is about 65 miles south west of me.
7:00PM Called Barb, she was very upset. Dana come by this afternoon and got on to Barb about her selling the farm and possibly moving to Lakeland. Dana jumped her mother and said the only reason she and Dwayne came to the farm is because Barb asked them to move from PA to the farm. Dana says it wasn't fair that Barb would just kick them out without anything. I assume from what Dana said to Barb about kicking her out with nothing means "you owes us money from the sale of the farm so they could make it" Barb doesn't owe them a thing. She bought the double wide and had it delivered and set up which cost Barb a lot of money. Dana and Dwayne pay nothing except their utilities (they have free gas from one of the wells on the farm). Dana and Dwayne have their hands out for what ever they can get out of Barb. They will get their 3rd of the estate when Barb is gone. Barb needs the money to live on, it is her only income other than her small retirement and Social Security. I she moves to Lakeland into an assisted living facility it will cost her all of her income plus more. I am afraid Dana will raise so much Hell that it will upset Barb and she will get sick.
8:00PM I text Kit asking her to call me. Watching "Tucker Carlson"
9:00PM Kit text back and said she had just read my text but she didn't call, she said she was tired and couldn't talk to me. I can't see why she couldn't take 5 minutes to call and talk to me. She is hiding her head in the sand and does not want to confront Barb's situation. 10:00PM Watching "Laura Ingrham"

9:45AM Kayla text, she will be here around 1:30pm to clean the house. She asked if her grand mother could come while she cleans and I said, OK with me, then she text back and said her grandmother had a doctor's appointment. I figure that is just an excuse not to come but I don't really want to meet her. It would complicate things. I don't need complications.
2:00PM Kayla cleaning lady arrived and I told them to clean the Florida room and clean stove/microwave, kitchen cabinets, refrigerator,

11:53AM Called Barb and talked to her, she said Dr. Reddy had been and told her there was no reason for her to be in the hospital and why did she call the emergency alert. He said that it was just a panic attack. She said he was very rude. She said that a neurologists was suppose to come and talk to her.
12:00PM Went out and pulled the vines growing in my carport and swept the carport where the lawn mower for John blow grass clippings all over my carport. Also everyday when I go out I see where there dog has pissed on my tires. I would like to find a shocker to place on my tires to blow the balls off that little bastard.

I told her if she couldn't get someone that I would close up my MH and come home and stay with her for 30 days.
8:00PM Will be watching TV the rest of the evening.
9:00PM Texting Kit and she said to contact Martha that took care of mom. Martha worked for mom over 20 years ago and Kit said that she is younger than herself. That means Martha is under 73 and and I don't believe that would be a good idea.
11:00PM Florence has hit the coast, NC and SC, lost of flooding

9:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
11:00AM Took a shower, shaved, and brushed my teeth,
1:15PM Going to see Rachel at Bella Vista Osprey Senior Living.
2:00PM Talked to Rachel for over an hour and she took me on a tour of the facility. I can't see anything wrong with the facility. Everything sounds OK and everything looks neat and clean. I have never lived or been around one of these facilities but it looked alright. She showed me one apartment but it was being renovated and had no furniture in it but is was fine.

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.

11:00AM Feel a little woozy. 11:30AM I feel a little better after drinking a glass of orange juice and a couple glasses of water.
12:30PM Temperature just hit 100 degrees. It will probably get hotter around 3pm. That is usually the hottest part of the day.
12:45PM Put a piece of beef in crock pot with red potatoes and onion with a bay leaf and Italian seasoning, salt. Wanted to put carrots in but the carrots were a little slimy in the package that I got at the store. That is the problem if you keep carrots in a sealed plastic bag, to much moisture. 1:00PM As the breeze increases and decreases the temperature varies by 2 degrees. 1:15PM Millie called and we talk for about 1/2 hour.
2:00PM Went to Family Dollar and picked up some dish washing pods for the dishwasher. Also picked up two picture frames.

September 16, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside. I had one of those dreams last night, frightening and I struck out and knocked the clock by my bed and broke it. I don't know if I will be able to fix it or not. I have struck out several times during my dreams but this the first time I have broken anything.
11:00AM Steve brought my Navy flag back. He said he is working 40 hours a week now and his wife can only work part time because they only have one vehicle. I thought about volunteering to help with transportation but I gave it a second thought and didn't say anything. Something like that could get very inconvenient.
12:00PM Watching a couple action movies this afternoon and just relaxing.
6:00PM Had a nice big salad with chicken.
7:00PM Called Barb and she said she would call me back.
7:15PM Barb called back, she was having dinner when I called before. Dana an Dwayne were there.
9:00PM Text with Wendy. We discussed why Barb won't walk more and exercise. I told her that she doesn't understand how difficult it is for us older people to walk a lot because it just wears us out. I know that exercising is good for you but walking more than just a short distance just wears me out and I know if Barb over does it, it takes days to recover.
10:00PM Watching "How the West was won". I know it is an old movie but not much on tonight to watch. I did watch "Finding Your Roots" earlier.

September 17, 2018

She says it make her a little sick but that wears off. I suggested that she eat before she takes and to drink a full glass of water with it.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson"
11:00PM Spent all evening watch TV.

September 18, 2018

7:00PM Called Barb, she said the Zoloft was making her sick so I told her to stop taking it. She had called her doctor and the nurse said it would be OK to stop taking the Zoloft. She had only taken 4 tabs of 25mg each so stooping should have no effect on her.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson". Eric text and said he was going over to James because James' car was in the shop being fixed.
11:00PM Watching "Shannon Bream", all of the bull shit about this women accusing Judge Kavanaugh. She is full of shit. The letter Fienstien presented was not signed so who really wrote it? This women can make all of the charges she wants but if she come to Congress and tells this story under oath and it is proven not to be true she has lied to the Congress and can be prosecuted. She can tell the story everywhere not under oath and no one can do a thing to her. Kavanaugh will never sue her for character assassination.

September 19, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. It is Tyler's 21st birthday, I hope he has a great birthday.
8:30AM Lawncare is mowing my grass. Woke me up.
9:30AM Up and about, Bella does not want to go out.
11:30AM Pedro NP4PF just dropped by with his Wouxun HT and wanted to know if I could program it for him. We talked for a while and I tried my cable for my Boefong UVR5 and it did not work. I asked him to leave it with me and I would try to program it for the local repeater and then give him a call. 12:00PM Temperature just hit 102 degrees, is going up and down a couple degrees. Working on Pedro's HT making some progress and have the 146.685 programmed in the HT but can't get anyone up on the repeater to give me a radio check. It is very difficult to try to test when you are trying to test with both radios in the same room. Took Bella outside, it is really hot.
12:20PM Received a call from Watson Clinic Cancer Resource Center for an appointment with Dr. Mulaparthi at the Cancer Center on Tuesday September 25th at 12:30PM.
3:30PM Terminex called and the service man said he wasn't feeling well and wanted to know if he could come another day. I told him I would be gone tomorrow but told him to call me around 5pm and I may be on my way home at the time.
3:40PM Millie called and we talked for a short time.
6:00PM Fixed fried chicken and okra for supper.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked about 15 minutes. Wendy is there and said she is staying until the end of the month, 11 days and then I suppose Dana and Dwayne will come back and stay. Barb says she is glad they went home because they brought all dogs with them and one is a yapper and drives he up the wall.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson", will be watching TV the rest of the evening.

September 20, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, very nice day, temperature 85 degrees, no clouds.
1:30PM Leaving for Lake Gibson to check it out.
2:00PM Met Laura Tenpenny and she answered my questions and gave me a tour of the facility. It is really a very nice facility. Three story with elevators. Beautiful dining room and has a theater and also has a pool. All amenities are included. You furnish your own furniture. Cost of $3195.00 pricey but nice.
4:00PM Back home and the Terminex inspector is here and he found some reminiscence of termites and he is measuring the MH to give me a cost of tenting and spraying for termites. Temperature is 102 degrees.
5:00PM Terminex completed inspection and gave me a estimate of $1595.00 for tenting the MH and I would have to move to a motel for two days. Also will have to take down my antennas and weather station. I told him after I go to the doctor and see what is going on with me I will contact them. They will finance interest free for three months.
7:05PM Barb called, Wendy had text telling me she was on phone with Kit at 7pm so waited for her to call. Talked to Barb for around 20 minutes and then talked to Wendy for 30 minutes. Seems she saw on the internet the Lake Gibson quoted their rooms for around $2200 rather than the $3195 Laura quoted me while was there. Wendy thinks she quoted me assisted living to me and not senior living. I think she quoted me what I asked her so I told Wendy to call her tomorrow and take it up directly with her, maybe did so Wendy can straighten that out. She wants me to call and go to Brookdale next. Brookdale has two facilities in Lakeland, one about 5 miles from me and the other 9 miles away. I will make sure to ask the questions about cost for assisted and senior living.
8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson" again. This is a bunch of Bull Shit about these women accusing Kavanaugh. She doesn't want to testify in front of the Senate committee because if she lies there she can go to jail. I wish all of these women with all of their Bull Shit would suck it up and grow some balls. The Democrats don't care if what the women says is true or not, they just want to derail Kavanaugh for Supreme Court.
11:00PM Watching FOX and H&I.

September 21, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
1:15AM Temperature is still 95 degrees.
7:30AM Up and moving around but thought it was a little early to get up so had a glass of water and went back to bed.
11:00AM Back up and the phone rang and it was Watson Clinic reminding me of my Tuesday appointment at 12:30pm at the Cancer Clinic.
11:30AM Took Bella outside, temperature is 95 degrees, hasn't changed since I went to bed last night. Watered my banana tree again, I try to water the banana tree each morning when I take Bella outside. Seems I am getting a new leaf each day.
2:00PM Just realized that the temperature readings on my weather station are completely wrong. Checked and I have low batteries so replaced batteries and the temperature now reads 81 degrees. All other readings don't seem to be effected by the batteries. Wind Gage and rain Gage create their own electrical pulses and don't use the battery. All good now. 4:00PM Back from the VET, it cost me $140.00 for the treatment. They gave her a shot for the itching and some cream to rub into her skin. The Vet also told me to get some fish oil and put in her food to help with her skin and hot spots.

Note:
My opinion on the Ford/Kavanaugh accusation is: - - - We have all seen and heard about women going to a therapist about something happening to them in the far past and through therapy the event is uncovered and then the therapist tries to find out the perpetrator of the event and then they start going through all of her acquaintances in her past and all of a sudden a childhood acquaintances appears in the national spot light and the victim and the therapist lock in on the name and the therapist connects the name and the incident and the victim believes it all as really happening exactly as her therapist has concluded.


5:00PM Watching "The Five"
7:00PM Wendy text and said she was using Barb's phone and Barb would call me when she got finished her phone call.
7:30PM Checked into the digital Friday night net. They will be changing to Monday night at 6:30pm.
8:00PM Barb called and we talked for a few minutes and then I talked to Wendy. Wendy referred to a couple other facilities but I think the one she referred to is only an assisted living facility but will check on Monday and talk to them and then go possible later in the week. Watching "Tucker Carlson" on a delay.
9:00PM All this bull shit about this Kavanaugh appointment and the Democrats is just dragging out.

September 22, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
7:30AM Up and looked outside and it looks like another hot sunny day. Bella didn't even lift her head and look up at me so it must be to early to get up. Went back to bed.
10:00AM Back up and about, took Bella outside and let her run around, also watered the banana tree which is growing very well.
12:00PM Kit called and we talked about Barb coming down here in November. I told her that I would like for Barb to come down when it gets cold in WV and stay for a while just to see how she likes living down here. While she is here she and I could go out and look at places unless she would just decide to live with me for a while. I think we could get along. Might be a couple rough spots but it would be much better than moving into a facility. Also, if I do have something wrong with me I could use her support. If something is really bad, it would be very rough for me going through it.
1:00PM Temperature just hit 95 degrees.
2:30PM Called Betty Moran and had a good talk. We talked about Dorthy Surock dying. Betty had just gotten back from the funeral home visitation. She was a little down so tried to cheer her up a little. Hope I helped some. Nothing much going on in Bridgeport other than people dying.
3:30PM Millie had beeps in while I was talking to Betty so I called her when I got off with Betty. She has pneumonia and the doctor gave her a shot and put her on some antibiotics. She feels better now, but still dragging.
4:00PM Realized when I got off with Millie that I had missed the beginning of the WVU KS State game and when I tuned in it was had 4 minutes left in the 1st quarter and the score was WVU 7 KS 0. Watching the game. Temperature 91 degrees.
6:50PM WVU 35 - KS State 6, the game is over, pretty good game. Eric says he is coming down tomorrow so took two slabs of ribs out of the freezer to thaw. Will put them in the over when I get up in the morning.
8:00PM Watching "Watter's World".

Going to use this card to install show in my bathroom. Won't have to take money out of savings and can pay it with no interest in a year.
12:15PM Received a text from Wendy stating that she is taking Barb into coming and living with me. I think that would be great, I think we will be able to get along.
7:00PM Talked to Barb and Wendy and Barb and Wendy indicate that Barb will probably come down here in November and stay for most of the winter and make a decision next spring. Will have to see how well I am getting along after I see the doctor tomorrow.

11:30AM Leaving for my doctor's appointment at Watson Cancer Center.
12:30PM Filled out the proper forms and went to see Dr. Mulaparthi (Indian). See seemed to be a very nice person.

8:00PM Watching "Tucker Carlson".
11:00PM Been texting Eric and Kit throughout the evening telling them about what my doctor said today and what I will be doing as far as tests etc. when they call me.

September 26, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
8:00AM Lawncare, sounds like the guys are mowing my grass this morning. 10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
12:00PM Fred from ing came by to take a look at installing a shower in my bathroom. He said it would not be possible to put in 30 x 60 in shower enclosure which I had examples of but if I could find something 28 x 54 he would give me an estimate to install. Looking on internet to see if I can find something.
1:00PM Found a company in TX that has 28 x 54 inch shower pad and a three piece inclusive with a cost of $853.30 delivered to me. I called Fred and he said that they would install it for $1550.00, (telcon 1:21pm) this would put it around $2400.00. I also went on line and found tempered glass sliding doors and two heavy duty grab bars putting the total cost of around $2700.00. I have applied for a Capital One credit card with 15 months of interest free credit with a $150.00 bonus back. When I get my card I think I will order the shower pad and enclosure and then call Fox Plumbing to put me on their schedule. I should be able to get this done by the time Barb comes down.
4:00PM Going to store to pick up some groceries.
7:00PM Called Barb, and there was noise on the line so she called me back. We talked and I told her about the installing the shower and cost in my bathroom.

8:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Beautiful day.
10:00AM Had breakfast and started watching the Senator Committee Hearing on the guilt of Brett Kavanaugh v. Ford.
10:30AM But the ribs in the oven.
3:00PM Barb called and we talked about her coming down around the first of November.
6:00PM The Senate committee has finished up for the day. Looks like Kavanaugh came out on top. Ford did exactly as I thought she would. She was one of those women that couldn't fit in with the elite in her school because the more she tried the more they laughed at her so she is trying to get even. Liberals used her weakness. She is a damaged soul. You can see it in her face, the mouse that never will fit in, pitiful individual.
11:00PM Watching TV all evening.

September 28, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.

Dana thinks Barb is going to sell the farm for less than it is worth to Jason but she knows Jason will kick her off the farm if he buys it. 1:30PM Wendy called and we talked for half hour while Barb was in hair saloon. Wendy did not want for Barb to hear what she was talking about.
2:30PM Eric arrived. He feels much better today. He thinks he past the stone this morning.
6:00PM Fixed shrimp and shells and cheese for Eric and I had a large salad with shells and cheese.
7:10PM Barb called because I had forgotten to call because I was eating supper. We talked for a while and I think she is coming to the conclusion that she will be coming down here in the first part of November. Wendy will drive her down in her SUV and leave it here and fly back to Columbus.
11:00PM Recap:::They voted Judge Kavanaugh out of committee and it has gone to the full Senate but they are going to have a review of his background check by the FBI and they will bring him up to voted on next week.

I have not had a cold in over 10 years and I am going to give Dr. Malaharpthi a what for when I see her on October 29th. I will take some pain pills I have to see if it will help.

10:35AM Fred Fox plumbing called returning my call from yesterday. I told him that the order from R&G should be here on October 10 and he seemed to be surprised that it is coming so quickly.

What they are dumping down the street where the owner told me that they were putting in a double wide that they had tried to get down the street a couple weeks ago and then parked it on the other side of the MH park near the small stream where it floods. Looks at lease 80 tons of red sand or clay that they will use to put a trailer or double wide on. The double wide they brought in before and couldn't get it around the corner to go down the street looks like a used double wide and needs a lot of work on the outside.

Private Note:

8:15AM Eric left for home. The plumbers are really tearing things out of the bathroom. I have Bella on a lease in the living room so she won't run back and forth because I turned the A/C off and opened up the doors so the plumbers could go in and out easier.
9:00AM Had some cereal and watching TV. Temperature is only 75 degrees outside but I know it will be getting a lot warmer later in the day. I will just have to live with the heat today.
11:00AM The tub has been removed and plumbing for the new shower have been installed but they can not put in the shower until the floor is reinforced. The floor is soft and the plumbers will not install the shower until the floor is fixed. Called a handy man that the plumbers recommended Doug Whipple 863 712 2563 and he said he would call me back around 1pm and let me know when he can do it and I told him that it was very important to get the job finished. Shawn told and showed me of a possible leak where the water comes into the area behind the tub/shower area. I will keep an eye to see if there is a leak. Paid Fox Plumbing $800.00, one half of the total bill.
3:00PM Did not receive back a call from Doug the handy man so descided to call the office and find out if the MH park has a handy and and I was lucky. She recommended Richardo Hernandez and I called him 407 683 1747.
3:50PM Richardo came by and took a look and he asked $200 labor and I pay for materials. Gave him $200 check #116 and he will go and get materials tomorrow morning and then come and start on the floor.

That is better than early in the morning and Tampa airport is only about an hour drive one way via I4 and I275 in Tampa.

11;00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, Brought in garbage containers, took Steve's to him. They picked up all of the trash I put out. Low temperature last night was 51 degrees, temperature now 84 degrees. Rolled up water hose, emptied the water container I had placed to catch the drip from the pipes. Will have to make sure that the plumbers repair this leak.
12:00PM Had some cereal for lunch. Watching "Out Numbered", have to get ready for my Dr appointment at 3:50pm.
3:00PM Heading for my doctor's appointment at 3:50pm.
4:30PM Out of the doctor's office. Now I know what is wrong with me. She said that I had this disease for quite a while and it was not life threatening. The major symptom for this disease is fatigue, no appetite, possible weight loss, and unable to stop bruising or bleeding. The disease is called," chronic lymphocytic leukemia" known as CLL. I have to have blood tests every 3 months and if there is any increase or advance of the disease my doctor will call me and let me know. If no increase then the next time I will go to my Cancer doctor will be next April 29, 2019. There is a treatment but the doctor says that the disease has not advanced to the level to start treatment. I will continue with my PA on a regular basis for any other problems.
6:30PM Called Ceil and told her what was going on and she said she was going to read up on CLL for her information.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while and I told her what the doctor said. Barb will be leaving on Saturday November 3rd. 9:45PM Millie called and I told her the whole story.

October 30, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. The plumbers will probably be here early and wake me around 8am.
7:45AM Plumbers arrived.
9:30AM Call Vet Hospital and made appointment to have Bella groomed on Friday.
12:00PM Plumbers are still working, watching FOX TV.
12P30PM Plumbers told me that they were finished and wanted me to pay for the job. I checked and they had not installed the shower door and I was told by Tommy that they did not install doors. Shane walked in and presented me for a bill to repair the leak in my plumbing. This just set me off at how rude Shane was but Tommy was staying quite and not saying much. Shane stormed out, very upset and went to his truck. I told Tommy that I would not pay anything until I talked to Fred. Tommy went to the truck but Shane did not return to the MH. 1:08PM Fred Fox called and wanted to know what was the problem. I told him that the plumbers refused to install the shower doors and he said that they didn't install shower doors. Also told him that they had not replaced the trim that they had removed when the took the bathtub out and he informed me that the bid he gave me did not include any of the replacement of the trim or to install the doors. He also said that the bid had been $1600.00 and not $1550.00. I had a few choice words for him and he informed me that they would just throw in the new shower water valve and I told him I was not paying to have the water pipes repaired because they did not leak when the plumbers arrived so the leak was caused by them and not the pipes or me. I also told him how rude Shane was and he was like a bull in china shop. He was very upset and angry. I told Fred Fox that I would pay the $800.00 balance he said was the correct amount on the balance of the bid. I paid Tommy and he returned to the truck. Shane never came back inside the MH. I think that while he was here I had FOX News on and this may have set him off. He was angry over something the minute he walked int the MH and avoided me until he presented me with the extra bill for the leak repair. Good riddance. Tommy (the helper) was very kind and a quite individual. I think he felt the tension and just didn't want to get involved because as he indicated when he left, "I have to work with him" meaning Shane.
1:30PM Tyler called and we talked for 1 and 1/2 hours. Had a very good conversation. I assume he is concerned for my health. He says he is driving down at Thanksgiving.
3:15PM Kit called and we talked for about half hour. I am getting calls because they are concerned, I assume.
4:15PM Called Richardo, handyman and he is coming tomorrow to take a look at replacing the trim and installing the shower doors.
7:00PM Called Barb and she was talking to Walt so she said she would call me back.
7:15PM Barb called back, I vented to her about the plumbers.
9:15PM Eric called and told him about the plumbers.
10:00PM Watching TV.
11:00PM Watching Star Trek series.

October 31, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:30AM Richard (handyman) came by to take a look at the shower installation and to see what needed to be done to install the new shower doors and new trim. I sold him the shower rod for $20 and he told me his friend was much better than he is to install the shower doors, Jose. He called Jose and he said he would be by to take a look and give me a price.
11:00AM Noticed that I forgot to put my cell phone on charge last night.
12:00PM Had some sausage for lunch.
3:00PM I decided to see if I could put some of the trim back up for myself. Didn't do to bad, found some nails and put most of the trim back up, saved myself some money.
3:30PM Jose came by and we unpacked all of the stuff to put up the shower doors and there was no screws but looks like everything is there except some clear silicone to seal everything and Jose said he had all of what he needed to put the doors in and he said he would install the doors for $100.00 and would get what he needed and come back around noon tomorrow. I think I could install the doors myself but I just wore me out putting up a few pieces of trim. I know Kayla will be here tomorrow but she can clean the rest of the house first and maybe Jose will be finished and she can clean the bathroom last. Estimated complete cost of $3056.51
7:00PM Called Barb, and we talked for a while. I will be calling her just two more nights because she will be on her way on Saturday. Wendy sent the schedule, first night in Charlotte, NC and the second night in Kingsland, GA and they should be here by late on Monday.
11:00PM Watched TV all evening. Messaged with Ruby and she was telling me her son was diagnosed with the same thing I have. He has gone through chemo and he isn't doing well, she said his white count was 80,000. My doctor told me not to worry unless my white count goes above 36,000.

November 1, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, another beautiful day, very good temperature, down to 61 degrees last night but in the 70s now.
11:20AM Kayla called and said she was not feeling well and wanted to know if she could come and clean tomorrow. I am beginning to wonder. She came earlier and need money so I gave her $80.00 and then she is putting off cleaning so she may be wanting to quit.
11:22AM Received a call while I was talking to Kayla and did not recognize the number so didn't answer.
11:30AM Called the number and got a message in broken English and I really couldn't understand what the message was, something about not being at his desk and call back later.
12:00PM Called the number again because I thought it may have been Jose calling about installation of the shower door, but got the same voice mail. Jose has not called.
3:00PM Jose has not called or shown up to install the shower door. If Jose doesn't contact me then it looks like I will have to try to install the doors myself. Later I will look and find if I have the tools to do the installation and start doing it myself. It is hell getting old and not able to do things for yourself.
6:00PM Got the side rails up and have to cut the lower rail and top rail so will do that sometime tomorrow. My cleaning lady called and said she is sick and will try to come tomorrow or Saturday to clean. I have to get up early and take Bella to the groomer by 9am in the morning.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked to her. She told Jenny today that she was not going to sell the farm, at least, not now and Jenny blow up and stormed out, so Barb is upset. I think Jason is trying to get the farm but he wants the mineral rights (gas) and Barb says, NO, so that pissed them off. Jason works for a big Marcellus gas company and I figure he probably has a tentative agreement to let the company drill for Marcellus gas, thus making a very big profit. 9:00PM Watching TV as usual.
11:00PM Watching Star Trek Enterprise series.

12:00PM Started working on the shower doors again. Cut the guild rail across the bottom of the doors and calked it and put it in place. Measured the length of the top bar where the doors are hung. I have no idea what happened with Jose, he never got back to me about hanging the shower doors, his lose, saved me a lot of money.
5:00PM Watching "The Five" and working on shower doors.
5:30PM The shower doors are up and working just like they should. I have to do a couple cosmetic things to the shower but basically it is finished and ready to go. Talked to Lowe's and they said that the shower chair should be there by tomorrow and someone should give me a call letting me know. She said it would probably come in on the afternoon delivery and put in the system by Sunday morning and I should get a call on Sunday or Monday. I have to pick up some lug bolts to put up the larger grab bar on the rear of the shower.

3:15PM Tried Barb's cell phone just to see if she had it turned on, she did not, so I left her a voice mail to call me when she gets into motel tonight.
6:30PM Barb called from the motel in Charlotte, NC. She said that she was very tired because she and Wendy didn't sleep very well last night. I told her what pop used to tell me when we went trout fishing when I was a kid and didn't sleep the first night we camped out, "We won't have to rock him to sleep the next night".

7:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Talked to Steve for a few minutes when he brought my recycle container back.
8:00AM Kayla told me that she would be here at 8am to clean the MH but she has not shown up yet. For some reason, I have doubts that she will show up. I just understand people. I had a feeling when she came and wanted to borrow money against her future wages that this might happen. She came and asked for $60 and then changed and asked for $80 and then I would pay the balance of $40 when she came and cleaned the MH again. Have not seen her since. I called her a couple days ago and told her I would like her to come and clean before Barb arrived and she said she would be here at 8am.
11:00AM Kayla called and said she was on her way.
