  • Terry, we read you loud & clear. Were you in St Pete for all the rain we have been having? We did need rain to put down the brush fires but you know Florida. You go from one extreme to the other. From drought to floods. It still has more pluses than minuses living here. I sure do not miss the SNOW!
  • yes the 3 weeks I was there it rained a lot but it was ok had lots to do with the Condo but it stil was relaxing and I slept later while I was there and had dinner with the cousins and friends. We ate out the three weeks straight because we did not have a kitchen. Can't wait to get back.

My brother Barry & his wife & my nephews Are in from Georgia. Will see them Tomorrow Night. Taking his grandson who is the same Age as my grandson to Adventure Land (Which is the old Nellie Bly) on rides & than To dinner & back to my house for dessert. Cuz, I'll talk to you soon. Xx Hope everyone had a great weekend!!! :)

  • Good Morning all Tomorrow is the last day of school. woo hoo Have a great day
  • This Month I have a Grandson Graduating from High School, a granddaughter graduating from middle school and a Grandson entering his last semester in College out on L.I.. Also a grandson changing teaching jobs from one district in NJ to another. I have a granddaughter who graduated from college two years ago and still is trying to find a job in her major from college. Meanwhile she is working in a vets office. She loves animals so I guess that is not too bad. Another Grandson is in Studies and work on the side from Stevens Institute in Hoboken. Can't keep up with them!!!!
  • Wow You must be one proud Grandpa.. Have a great night. I have the two girls sleeping over tonight because Mommy and Daddy (both teachers) have their end term dinner on the same night tonight. I am exhausted. lol I try very hard to enjoy every minute because it goes so fast. I remember when I first started and found the Dailyslope Mia was just a little baby and now she is 10 and has a sister that is 6. Before I know it they will be your grandchildren's age. xoxoxo

  • hi friends.. have a great 4th of july!!!
  • Have and great and safe 4th.
  • Hot & Humid but what do you expect in Florida in July? We had a barbecue buffet for dinner today along with some liquid refreshment. Followed up with a gathering to sing Patriotic and all the old songs with Bob, his wife and his portable organ. Now just relaxing the rest of the 4th.
  • It was not too bad here in Staten Island. We had a little breeze in the yard.Ate way too much but back on my healthy eating today. Warren I am coming down to Saint Pete the end of the month for about 9 days and probably for a month in October or November. Mike has 4 more yeas left to retire and he said he will be down there for 6 months out of the year. Not me lol Maybe 3 months I want to be home for the holidays with the kids. Have a great day..xoxoxo

    I went on the above thread and it ends and continues on here Is this where we are suppose to be or on the above???? CONFUSED (as usual lol)
  • Have a great weekend....
  • Had quite a rainstorm this afternoon. Our screened Lanai got flooded. (For you Northeners, a Lanai is just a Patio with a fancy name!) Been reading some lesser known Authors of late. Not too shabby. I will have to go across the street to get the latest Higgins. Our Library carries mostly large print and some publishers do not get them that way. I am up to date on Patterson and Woods. T-Bone, when you come down, be sure to bring a rain coat!
  • Good morning friends Hi cuz You're in the right spot! Will talk to u soon Xx
  • Hi Warren I'm reading Patterson's latest book. "Murder Games" Really good & fast moving. We had some rain on & off here, But not too bad. I hope the sun is out now for the Floridians! It's going to be about 90 today here. It's was hot & humid yesterday. Ugh!! I'm not a fan of the summer. I always preferred fall & winter. Enjoy your day!! Tell Carol i said hello!! :)
  • Carol picked up a Patterson book but it was one of the Maximum Ride series which is NOT an adult book. Read two chapters and brought it back to the Library. I thought "Murder Games" was a redo of the "Rio" book. Just watched Venus Williams get whooped by the Spanish girl in the Wimbledon's final. Disappointing. I hope Federer does better tomorrow. The Yankees stunk the place out last night with terrible fielding and they blamed it on the pitching. Oh well, beginning to look like there will be NO New York team at the top of the heap this year. Washington is running away with the Mets division.
  • Interesting article about the Gowanus Canal and its historical significance: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/16/gowanus-battle-of-brooklyn-new-york-history-maryland Hope all remains well for each of you. Take good care & keep smiling! :)
  • hi Richard, thanx for sharing.. hope all is well. :)
  • hi friends.. NY is in a hot spell.. where is autumn??? :)
  • Hey Son, Interesting article, thank you. My Father worked in the Citizen Works plant of B'klyn Union Gas Co. right on the canal for many years before their whole operation switched to the Greenpoint plant with the onset of Natural Gas. I can remember as a kid coming home from Red Hook pool and one of my crazy friends would dive into the Gowanus on the way home. He did not smell to good! There are so many historic places in Brooklyn that people are unaware of. Without going back so far, I wonder how many people who enjoy Prospect Park without realizing that during WW2 it was home to an Anti-Aircraft battery??? Patsy- It is only July. Please, Autumn is a long way off. Turn up the A.C. I
  • Well finally I got on. Was having a hard time for over a week Needed my password. Lucky i can remember anything these days lol Had to reset it AGAIN. Hey Warren I remember my Mom telling me stories of jumping in the Gowanus after she went to the pool. Every time we would drive down that neighborhood she would tell us all the stories of her days as a young girl. Also went to the Bath houses when she was young. She grew up on Carroll Street and after that when she was older she lived on 15th street and 4th Hope all is well
  • Hi friends Happy weekend!! Hope everyone is well. Warren the AC has been on non stop. I dread the bill!! Went down to 3rd Ave last night for Summer stroll. Bay ridge does this 2 Fridays in July & 2 Fridays in August. We took our grandson & we had dinner At Peppinos & we bought him some matchbox Cars & he did sand art. He had a ball & that Made us very happy. We did a lot of walking & the live entertainment thru out the event Was awesome. Lots of different bands & Entertainment along the way. Lots of people But all it seems had a good time! My daughter & her husband are in Cancun & we are watching Gavin & Ace Their Yokie. Hi cuz Glad you got back on. Send my love to all!! Xox Everyone, enjoy your weekend & Stay cool!! :)
  • Warren I am on list for Pattersons next book "The Store". I'm # 100. Not too bad. Last book I was #189 on library list. I have other books in between that I'm Reading. Happy reading. :)
  • Have a great weekend. Went to the Saint Anna's mass today at Saint Johns. So sad. The club was sold and very few people showed up. Will be in saint Petersburg this week coming up. Two weeks of just relaxing..I think it is hotter in New York.
  • Hi all Hot as hell here in Saint Petersburg. Hope all is well. Have a great day and a great weekend when it gets here. xoxooxo
  • edited July 2017
    Have no fear T-Bone.. The rain will be back shortly to cool things off a bit. Checked Zillow on our old homestead on 12th street in the slope. $2million. We sold it in 1960 for $8500. Oh well! That's life. We have a new format for our Sunday Afternoon Church Service here at our Independent Living Apartments. Different preachers each week volunteering from surrounding Churches. I am serving Communion and counting the offering. Doubt if I will be preaching.
  • Hi friends Hope everyone had a great weekend. Hi cuz Have fun in Florida. Talk to u soon Love u xox Warren I love that you are always active in Your community. Stay well. Going to get hot again this week Here in NY. Thank God for A/C & pools! Stay cool friends :)
  • Horrible weather here in Saint Pete Rain, rain go away
  • Welcome to July in Florida.... Hot or wet, take your pick!
  • It does not matter we are just taking it easy I would prefer the sun and sit by the pool even for an hour and read my book. It is what it is.
  • Hey T-Bone, looks like you will get your wish this morning. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THIS AFTERNOON. The rain may come back later. Right now where I am the Sun is shining brightly.
  • It was sunny and got to the pool for awhile it was a nice day

  • Hey Patsy, has the heat gotten to you so bad you can not share your thoughts? I have been reading some different writers efforts lately. One book was written by the wife of one of our blog administrators. I am keeping up with Woods books but having trouble getting some of Patterson's latest. Our librarian sticks mostly to large print books.

  • Had our youngest son, his wife & 2 grandchildren visit with us over the weekend. Great to see them. It has been awhile. Now they are out in Disney enjoying the sights & sounds. No grandchildren talking marriage yet. The 2 that were here over the weekend are only 17 & 13 so it is too soon for them. We have 5 more Grandchildren with a few getting well up in their 20's. No marriage talk amongst them either. They are all doing well in school and are very responsible young people. We are lucky parents & Grandparents also.
