    Terry, great pictures. I still have not been able to post them. Judy, good luck on Thursday. Hope the surgery was a complete success. Anna, when you move. Do not forget all the outfits you have to notify, starting with the Post Office, S.S., Pension, Motor Vehicle in Illinois & Florida., Life Insurance, Health Insurance, Credit Cards, Utility Company, + anyone you communicate with regularly. Who the hell is Juan Pablo????

     

    Do any of you remember the Roller Derby games that used to take place in the Armory on 8th Ave & 14-15th Street? The leading lady on the Brooklyn Womens team was named "Tuffy Bresheun (SP)" It was a lot of fun and right in the neighborhood.

  • Hi Warren
    Lol. Juan Pablo from the tv show
    The Bachelor.
    He really did not find love just a temporary playmate.

    How exciting! I hope you get it!
  • Good morning friends
    So cold & windy today
    This weather is crazy
    Yesterday warm, today freezing

    Hi Mamacita
    Hope all is well

    Everyone enjoy your day!!
    :)

  • T-Bone, Carol watches that show often. She said that most of the people they pick have an accent of one kind or another. The Brooklyn accent should not be a problem at all. She said last night they had two Indian women with heavy Indian accents!
    It is cool & windy here in Florida today. Not as cold as you in NY NJ etc: but for us it is quite cold.
    Bobby, glad someone can remember some of the stuff from my younger days. Most on here are just a little too young.
  • Warren,
    I am coming down the 1st of April get some warm weather ready

    Mamacita
    It would be real cool to get picked..Excited.......
    Good Morning all

  • Good morning friends

    Enjoy your day
    :)
  • Good morning all. Brrrr. Cold this am. Terry, bring sweaters!!! 48 in Tampa, 36 in Hernando & Citrus counties!!! Patsy, ask your daughter if she knows when her college started. It was there when I considered schools in the late 40's early 50's and I am sure way before then. Also, what Wagner is it named after??? Judy, how did the stitch removal etc: work out?
  • DSCN0808
    Let's see if this worked.....
  • Holy cow it worked but I did not mean to take up so much space. Now that I know it works I will try to get some up to date photos...
  • Hi Warren
    Great picture!!
    I need to learn to post pix of my grandson.

    Toniann goes to Hunter in NYC
    Plays softball for them
    Say hi to Carol
    Enjoy your day!!
    :)

  • Those cute little girls above - what angels they are!

    As for Warren - looking younger every year, for sure!

    -----


    One thing I greatly miss about NY is horse racing. Today, I'm watching racing from Aqueduct & England online.  Great stuff.

    Enjoy Purim!

  • My Grandmother's Raviolis



    mamacita,

    Do you have a you tube channel? That's a great way to spread the word about your good home cooking.  :)

  • Patsy, Sorry about the wrong school. I remember back when she was looking at different schools and for some reason I thought she picked Wagner.

    In regards to the picture. When I had the letters B U etc and the choices of font color & size, I could not do the pictures. Now all those choices are gone but I can do the picture????
  • Warren,
    When I was small (very young) I remember the Trolly tracks and the trolly up 20th street where Bishop Ford is now..
  • Hi guys
    Had fun today lunch & shopping with
    Cuz Terry, Debbie & Mildred.
    Hope you all had a good day too!
    Enjoy your night.
    :)
  • Hi,

    Well the stitches and the sling are all off....still very swollen, can't fully extend my arm yet...I will be starting physical therapy on Monday. Didn't realize I would still be like this almost four weeks later. I guess having the Cubital tunnel surgery (elbow) was more intense that I expected......I'm sure it will feel better each day


    warren...great picture

    Patsy ...has is your grandson doing?

    Hi to everyone else.....enjoy the rest of your weekend

    Hello everyone.....Happy St. Joseph's Day!!!!!!!
  • Hi guys
    Broke my wrist yesterday
    A little girl decided to skip in front of me
    & I tripped over her & I wound up with an impacted wrist (left)
    I hit the ground very fast & hard & landed
    On my left wrist
    In a lot of pain & going to the orthopedic
    Tomorrow
    My wrist is wrapped up & in a sling right
    Now.
    Going to take meds now for it & going to bed
    Have a good night, all
    :)
  • OMG  Patsy
    Feel Better
    love ya
  • Patsy.....take it easy....feel better

    Happy First Day of Spring!!!!!!


    Have a great day
  • Hi guys
    Thanx
    Happy Spring!!
    :)
  • Patsy, Take care of that wrist. Hope it heals quickly. I think you should make up a story about how you got it broken. What you said is very believeable, but it would be more interesting if you broke it defending yourself from a mugger or a pack of wild dogs. Just kidding!!!!

    Judy, the whole world is upside down these days so why shouldn't your pictures join in. Only thing is I am too damn old to stand on my head to look at them.

    Terry, it has started to warm up some down here, especially in the afternoon. Mornings are still a bit crispy.

    garden
  • Hi guys
    The cast is on (whoopee)
    They come in colors
    I opted for blue

    Follow ups In between

    Warren I'm very glad it wasn't due to
    Dogs lol
    Ok everyone have a good night
    :)

  • Good morning friends

    Weather is nice today
    Have a great day!!
    :)
  • Hi-Patsy-sorry to hear about your wrist-take care!! Hi Terry, Warren, Debbie & Judy...56 degrees today-it was sunny & beautiful..unfortunately, that's not going to last...oh well..getting ready for the baby shower on Sunday..had some personal days coming to me so took this afternoon off and will be off until next Wednesday-than after that-2 days working and my retirement officially begins!!! just spoke to my brother-the closing is supposed to be on July 1 but he said that usually doesn't happen so I might be here longer than expected. but I have so much to do and I'll be with Jessica and the baby (when he comes) so I think it will work out..well, everyone enjoy your weekend..talk to u soon..
  • Good night sweet dreams
  • Saturday- This afternoon I am having a bunch (9) neighbors from my old street before we moved here to our Independent Living Apartment. I invited them for a dinner party. The best part is we have no preparation, no cooking and no clean up afterward. We can just enjoy our company in a private dining room. They get to order from our menu with a lot of choices for their entrée including Prime Rib today. There is soup, salad, sides and of course coffee, tea and dessert. We also prepaid for a couple of bottles of wine to be served during the meal. These people were our neighbors & friends for 16 years. We all had our homes built around the same time. Unfortunately most of the men are gone and the majority left are widows! Looking forward to this dinner party with old friends!
  • Hi guys
    Warren enjoy your dinner party
    Nothing beats being with old friends
    Enjoy!!
    Hi Anna
    Enjoy the baby shower tomorrow

    Everyone have a great weekend!
    :)
  • Good morning friends
    Happy Sunday

    Enjoy!!
    :)
  • Anna
    Happy Baby Shower Day!!
    Enjoy!!
    Warren how did the dinner party go?
    Bet you & Carol had a great to
    Time!!
  • Patsy, Thank you for asking about the party. It worked out just fine. Our friends were a little shocked when they saw their choices from the menu. We (Carol & I) had prepaid for the party and it was all inclusive. The wine went over well also.
    Some of them thought they would be paying for their dinner individually. We reassured them that it was all taken care of including the tip. What Carol liked the best was just enjoying her dinner and our company and then getting up from the table and not having to clean up anything. It was well worth the cost!!!
  • Good morning friends
    Warren so happy you all had a great time.
    It is nice when you can just leave & not
    Worry about cleaning up.

    Going for a follow up today on the wrist.
    Still in some pain
    I hate this cast on my arm
    Oh well wish me luck
    Everyone have a great day!!
    :)

  • Hello all. Would you people up North please keep your cold air to yourselves! In the high 30's and low 40's in this area this AM. That is NOT normal for late March. Should be well into the 70's. Patsy, good luck with the wrist. Hope it heals fast. Judy, keep those fingers moving. Anna, I am sure we will be all warmed up when you get down here to Florida. T-Bone, good luck on the TV show. Had a Dentist appointment this AM. Supposed to go to a going away dinner this evening for one of our old neighbors but Carol is not feeling so hot right now. Have to see how she feels later.

    :)
  • Good morning friends
    Happy Thursday
    Meeting Debbie for brunch later on
    Hope you all enjoy your day!!
    :)
  • We did not get to the dinner party Wednesday night. Carol was not up to it. I made her pasta and sauce here in the apartment. She is feeling a lot better tonight. Tomorrow I will be trained as a dispatcher for our Sun City Center Security Patrol. The patrol is a backup for our County Sheriffs officer. No guns, no arresting just observation and reporting any kind of trouble or offering assistance where needed. Between that and the work I am doing for a Nondenominational Worship group, I am keeping pretty busy. Guess it will keep me out of trouble. Remember the old saying "Idle hands are the devil's workshop".
  • Hi Warren
    Glad Carol is feeling better
    You're a busy bee down there
    Good for you. It will keep you young
    Weather in 50's this weekend with rain
    Not too bad
    Enjoy your weekend!
    :)

    Judy....your grandson got so big and he's so cute!!! Even upside down lol Hope you're feeling good also.

    Warren....You're a very busy man, that's a good thing!!



  • Happy Sunday all, Terry it looks like you got real lucky. Last week was rainy and cold. Forecast for this coming week warmer & dryer! Anna, welcome to the retired people club. After awhile you will find yourself as busy as ever but you will enjoy it more. Judy keep working on that wrist until it is 100% better. Patsy, watch out for that wrist of yours. You do not want to do too much until the healing process is well under way. Debbie, Talk about busy, today I have to take a large part in the Nondenominational worship service here and in another place., Tuesday I will be going to two Assisted Living places to monitor the service we do there and in a few weeks I will be in charge of those services for a couple of Tuesdays, Next Sunday I will be running the Communion Service in two places On Easter Sunday I will be doing the sermon here at our service and at another Independent/Assisted Living place down the road. On the 21 I will pull my first shift as a dispatcher for the Security Patrol. It is the busiest I have been in years.

    Enjoy your Sunday folks, Terry get those bags packed!
