  • Hey Patsy,
    I think you are being very generous calling "Woman of God" okay. Still have not gotten hold of "Never-Never". Had some further medical developments. Have to go for a test which is supposed to show if my Cancer has spread. If it has I will need a new aggresive treatment program. Now I have 8 Doctors I see regularly and three I see on occasion.
  • Hi Warren I have said a prayer for you.. Angels around you. I hope nothing has spread & you will Be okay!! Been in NJ o few days now, spending Time with friends. Had fun shopping, Dining out & went to paint & wine class. I skipped on the wine because I don't Drink, but the painting class was fun. We painted a peacock feather on Canvas. It came out pretty good I guess. IMG_0365
  • My youngest daughter will get this one Because the one I did 2 yrs ago went To my eldest daughter. My girls were arguing Over the first one I did like it was a Van Gogh or something. So the eldest Daughter won that round, so now the youngest Gets this one. The next one I do, I will keep for myself, Each class does a different painting. You don't know what it is that you're going To paint until you get there. We had a lot Of fun. Hope you have a great weekend. Stay well. Richard hope you're enjoying The weather & all the sports you Watch. Hope you're well. :)
  • The above is the first painting class I went to 2 yrs. ago. This is the painting the girls Argued about. Lol
  • Hello all, Patsy thank you for the prayers. I have not heard about the results of my bone scan test yet. They used to say no news is good news. I can only hope that is true. The only painting I have been brave enough to tackle has been "Paint by Numbers":. These are not kids versions but complex adult versions. My oldest son has sent me some. I find "people" to be the biggest challenge.  
  • HI WARREN..

    YES, NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!!!

    IT WILL ALL WORK OUT..


    SEND MY LOVE TO CAROL & STAY WELL.

    :)

  • Goat - get well & pronto, too!  It is now Spring Time and may there be many more good Spring times for you & yours.


    I hope everyone will go outdoors to watch baseball & softball. Lots of great college basketball action on tv with the NCAA Final Four as well. That's the true beauty of Spring - it means renewal for everyone and gives us much incentive to be enjoying ourselves.

    Take good care, Folks!


  • Oh by the way,  great art work above.   :)

    I must admit that most of my sport watching is on the boob tube. Right now I am watching Roger Federer And Raffa Nadal fight for the Miami Open men's Tennis championship.  Roger has made a terrific comeback since his six months off due to injury. Raffa is looking good also. I had started to watch the Yanks VS Tampa Bay but the Rays are running away with this one. They claim a full house but have over half the upstairs seats covered with tarps.

    I will know  nothing about my recent test results until the 21 when I see my new Urologist. It stinks that he leaves me hanging this long and I will let him know it when I see him. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
  • good morning, friends.

    Richard, the artwork was fun to do. :)

    they are nice, but most important my daughters love them!!

    spring is here, but we have at least 2  days of rain coming

    this week.

    april showers bring may flowers is true..

    warren, it will all be ok..

    enjoy the weather.

    Warren, root for those Mets!!

    I hope they win their opening game today!!

    have a great day, friends


    :)



  • hello All,

    We have had a very dry warm spring so far but today was considerably cool. One of the biggest fears down here is when it is dry and gets hot we have the worry of brush fires. Had one at an intersection of two major highways yesterday and it raked havoc on traffic. No one was injured or killed and that is the good news. With what is going on in Washington these days reminds me of a time years ago  We were visiting someone in a mental institution on long Island. N incident took place and one of the inmates asked out LOUD. "Who is running this place? The inmates or the people who work here".
  • good morning, friends hope everyone is well.. weather has been beautiful last few days here!! warren, I'm going to library to put my name on list for his new book 'LITTLE BLACK BOOK" trying to keep up with all his new novels. everyone, have a great day!!! :)
  • good morning, friends


    just want to wish everyone a Happy Easter!

    enjoy...

    :)

  • A VERY happy Easter to all. Went to Church last night (Maundy Thursday service). It was very moving and it brought home the true meaning of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
    I got myself volunteered to run the Memorial Day remembrance service here at our Senior Independent living facility. It will work out fine. Having a little trouble with my insurance company over coverage for a test to see if my Cancer has spread to my bones. I will try my best to win on appeal.

    "Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my savior, waiting the coming day Jesus my Lord: Up from the grave he arose, with a Mighty fortress o'er his foes. He arose a victor from the dark domain and he lives forever with his saints to reign. He Arose! He Arose! Hallelujah Christ arose." That is an Easter hymn that I learned in the Junior Choir of my Church 70 years ago. Never forgot it.  I think it tells the whole story of Easter. I sang it at a service I conducted at an Assisted Living Memory group. A lady there who could not even remember her name sang the whole thing with me, word for word. Music is Amazing. Happy Easter all and I hope our Jewish friends are having a successful Passover. I am not familiar with Muslim Holidays but I wish you all the best.
  • beautiful, Warren.

    I love your Easter hymn.

    I hope it all works out with your ins. coverage.

    I hope everyone had a great Easter.

    we spent it in NJ with some relatives.

    traffic was horrible coming home.. an hour ride took us over

    3 hrs. it being Easter & Passover, everyone was travelling.

    that said, we had a great day!!


    hope everyone has a nice day!!

    :)

  • Hi, Carol has been ill with her IBS for several days now. On top of that her migraines have been acting up. Poor girl can hardly eat anything without it giving her problems. Tomorrow is my big day. Appointment with new Urologist to decide on a treatment program for my Prostate Cancer recurrence. Add to that we had a leak in the drainage system for the A.C and they are trying to repair it today. The fun never ends.  
  • HI WARREN..

    PRAYERS ALL AROUND FOR YOU & CAROL..HOPE YOUR RESULTS ARE GOOD TODAY!!

    :)

  • Hi, I am still on the wait list for Never-Never. I was told I am next in line!
  • Hi Warren Good book!! I know you'll enjoy it. Little black book is unbelievable. I can't believe it's this good. I am half way thru it & it is 418 Pages long. I just started it yesterday. I've been reading most of it today. Rainy outside. I did some chores around the House & sat & read most of the day. This is a great way to relax. It has an excerpt from 16th seduction At the back of book. I'm on waiting list,for that Book, But I was told, it's a very long waiting list. Have a great weekend. Hope you & Carol are feeling well. :)
  • Wishing everyone here the very best.  :)


    I think we discussed this on another thread a long while ago but don't remember for sure:


    Brainerd loved Brooklyn and took many old photos which are readily available online.  I would have posted a link but (sad to say) when I searched there was objectionable content among the photos {the content was from another party}.  Here is one really good example of his work:





    The weather here in St Paul changes every day - some times it is war, others it is wintry!  Oh well, Summer will be here soon enough.


    Everyone please Keep Smiling!
  • good morning, friends,

    hope everyone is well.  we are having beautiful weather in

    NY today.

    take care, people, & like Richard said "keep smiling"!!

    :)

    Hello all, Weather here is warm & dry. We need a few good Florida rain storms to wetten up the fields and bushes. Bush fires can be very dangerous. Reading Never-Never. Not impressed. Last couple of Patterson books not my cup of tea. I think it is the influence of his co-writers. Our medical problems continue to plague us. Waiting for my new drug to counter attack my cancer. Love to all.
  • Hi Warren, Ok I thought never never was good! It's a matter of taste. "The black Book" is something I know you'll enjoy. Reading a Mary higggins Clark book Now. Love her books too! Feel good, Warren. I hope your medicine Helps you. Stay well & love to Carol. Xx
  • My wife ordered and got Woods latest on her Kindle. It is really good. Barrington and crowd! I hope that Patterson will come out with some more "Cross" books. Those and the Murder Club I really enjoy!
  • quoting myself,

    ''some times it is war,''


    meant to say  "warm"


    LOL!


    The weather here continues to change every day just like I wrote above.  But they say Spring will finally, yes FINALLY, arrive by the middle to end of the week.



    Everyone be well & SMILE!  :)
  • Hey Son, Good luck on the spring weather. I hope it will turn to your liking!
    We are supposed to get some rain later today. We really need it. Brush fires popping up not that far from where we live. The State Government has put a ban on most open burning but I have no idea how well the citizens are responding. Many people in rural areas are used to burning their trash. With everything so dry, just a spark can get things going.  While the rain will help avoid and slow down fires, the Lightning that accompanies the rain can cause fires. Sort of a catch 22. 

    Except for their starting pitching, the Yankees are looking good. The Mets seem to be falling apart physically. I root for both of them.
  • HI FRIENDS, first I want to wish all the moms a very 'happy mother's day"" enjoy this special day!!! warren, I am reading '16th seduction by Patterson'.. so far, really good. hope all is well. everyone, have a great weekend. NY is getting rain all weekend, so far. :)
  • Happy Mothers day to all you Mothers out there! We just had a delicious Mothers Day Special Dinner-Shrimp Cocktail, Lobster Tail. Stuffed potato and mixed veggies followed by Chocolate Chip Cake and Coffee/Tea. Our cooks, servers and supervisors went out of their way to make it special!
  • HI FRIENDS.. HOPE ALL THE MOMS HAD A GREAT MOTHER'S DAY.. MY KIDS TOOK ME OUT FOR DINNER, & GAVE ME BEAUTIFUL GIFTS & IT WAS A WONDERFUL DAY!!! :) I JUST CELEBRATED MY 25TH WEDDING ANNIERSARY ON TUESDAY. MY HUSBAND & I ARE GOING OUT SATURDAY NIGHT TO A REALLY NICE ITALIAN RESTAURANT FOR DINNER TO CELEBRATE OUR 25TH. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT WEEKEND!! WEATHER HERE IN NY IS GORGEOUS!!!!!

    Happy,happy,happy anniversary Patsy to you and your Hubby. Next month we will celebrate our 57th! While waiting for Black Book and 16 I am reading some Baldacchi. He is v e r y d r a w n out in his writing but the stories are good.
  • hi friends happy memorial day, weekend!! have fun & say a prayer for this country & those who fought and are still fighting for our freedom!! remember land of the free, because of the brave.. everyone.. stay well!!!
  • I will be leading a Memorial Day Program on Monday where we will honor all past and current Service people including the Merchant Marines. They are left out of many programs but will be honored in ours. It will also have a section on Flanders Field. Do you know where Flanders Field is????
  • Hey blog supervisors. What happened to the field where we could change the Font color etc:?
  • The owner of the site was warned that a security update was required to avoid predatory viruses, etc. The update killed a bunch of useful features. He will try to find a fix to restore them.
  • Hey booklaw. Thank you for the quick response. Makes sense!
  • Happy Brooklyn Day!!!
  • Oh, the memories of "Anniversary Day" in Brooklyn. The Parade, the dignitaries, the crowds in the park etc;. When we got back from the park we had a ball at the Church. It was headlined by ice cream bricks from Droges in Bay Ridge. Of course soft drinks like "Dr Browns Cel-Ray. Our Church was originally "Dutch Reformed". and we had a moch up Windmill on wheels. I got to ride it one year with our little "Dutch Boy" outfits. Oh, the memories.. It was all covered very well by the good old "Brooklyn Eagle"/
  • Hi friends Happy Sunday Hope everyone had a great weekend In jersey at my sister's house. Took my grandson to Great Advenutre Safari yesterday. Been here since Friday with my Older daughter & grandson. Safari was awesome even though line wait Was 2 hrs and 10 mins. But worth it. Gavin had a ball. Warren, I finished 16th Seduction. Awesome!! On waiting list for next book. "Murder Games". Enjoy rest of day!! :)
  • Hi I grew up on 7th Street and 6th Avenue. I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the mailman that delivered mail in 1967. I just knew bobby the mailman. Please either respond here or email me at jerzeygirl3@yahoo.com. Thanks Barbara
  • I know that "Jim Gordon" was the Letter Carrier for 12th St between 5th & 6th Aves in the 40's & 50's. Did not know the extent of his route. You might have luck calling "Van Brunt Station" on 9th street. Hey Patsy. I am having trouble getting Patterson's latest so I started on Sanford's novels. He is a little rough on the language and his stories all take place in Minnesota but they are good cops & robbers stories.
  • hi friends. warren, I hope you get Paterson's books along the way. some really good reads. enjoy Stanton. I may try 1 of his books. have a great weekend, friends :)
  • Hello all, Little problem with my Doctors very important office visit scheduled for next week. They tried to put me off for a month but I worked on it and got one for 8:30 tomorrow am. Think it is straightened out now. I finally got (16 by Paterson) It is excellent so far. I have also been promised "Black Book". We had a ferocious storm here yesterday afternoon. Building across from us had bad damage. Ceilings down etc:. We are okay but those people who had the ceilings come down have had their apts declared temporarily uninhabitable. Management is putting them up in other apts and hotels. All we got was some water on our Lanai.
  • I just finished Woods latest & Patterson's 16th. Liked them both. Received Black Book and will start that. Had trouble posting yesterday but seems okay today.
  • Hi friends Happy Father's Day to you dads out There. Enjoy your special day!! Warren, Glad you got those books. I enjoyed them immensely. ON list now for Patterson's "Murder Games". When I return the previous Book, I put myself on list for next one Out. BBQing in backyard today with family. It's beautiful here in NY! Not too hot High 80 with a great breeze. Wish It would stay this way. My youngest daughter left for vacation In PR this morning. Warren Glad you guys made it thru the Storm ok. Stay well, people. :)
  • Hope all the Fathers had a great day! All 3 of my children called to wish me a happy Fathers day. Of course, my 2 sons are also Fathers so I had to wish them Happy Fathers day right back. Just finished "Black Book". What an ending Holy Cow! I guessed one of the culprits but not the other. Do not want to spoil it for anyone by revealing names.
  • quote: ''Our Church was originally "Dutch Reformed" The church on New Lots Avenue in ENY where I grew was also DRC but no longer has the name 'Dutch' in it: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cd/New_Lots_Community_Church_jeh.jpg/1200px-New_Lots_Community_Church_jeh.jpg Don't know why the name was dropped. But one thing's for sure - the institution has been a great community resource for many decades and remains so to this day. I hope everyone here has a wonderful Summer!
  • Thank you to the administrator for getting me back here. It has been way toooo long. I remember when there wouldn't be one day I would miss posting and reading. I miss the old blog days. We had so much fun posting. Not a day goes by I don't think of Umbria and Janet who now are both hopefully in a better place. BIG MAMA IS BACK lol
  • Good Morning from Staten Island Have a great day.
