Good morning Friends,
I have decided I need a blog break. I enjoy visiting you all very much, but we all of a sudden have doctor visits and dentist visits coming up, and things that need doing So I think I will be off line for awhile, not sure how long I need. I do love my slow mail very much-so still love receiving those. I may stop by for visits too, just not sharing a post for a bit.
I was very unhappy with the new dentist I used so went on a Facebook group for my area and asked for dentist suggestions. Everyone was referring one of two places. I called one and they are booked up til mid December, but the other one is a father and son team that sounds perfect for me and they got me in mid September. Their office looks like an historical building not too far from that historic court house I shared awhile back. Best of all their crowns are around $900.00 (usa money) which I am used to paying not $1700.00 that the one I went to was charging.
Larry has a couple visits too and they are long drives coming up. We also go in soon for our yearly eye exams and we both are having vision issues. Old age I am sure haha
A boat hit our dock one evening so that bent up the frame in places, just can't seem to get a handle on this old dock. We did get help from friends near our woods home yesterday, and that got the heavy cement tiles down in place on the dock so that will give it weight and more stability. so progress there. One of Larry's expensive boat batteries bit the dust. Hopefully things will fall in order after Labor Day so Hubs can finally go fishing and less stress with this dock.
Every weekend now through Labor Day (first Monday in September) will be totally bonkers on the lake, as they are having the annual boat races-these are timed races for many categories of different boats, which brings people into the lake nationwide.
I think I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything going on. Allergy season has started early too so needed to get back on claritin today
On another good note a new couple we have met that are the same ages as us, picked us up to bum around a couple stores in the Amish community including the large grocery store I love. They had beautiful large fresh Georgia peaches, and their home grown cantaloupes that are always huge and delicious. I had Larry choose two of them Going through their canned goods-which some are dented cans and very much marked down-I finally found chickpeas with no salt. I have been searching everywhere for those and couldn't find any with no salt. I have been wanting to try baking with the liquid as Nicole has shared with us in the past.
I know most everyone that reads me are the total opposite of my personal political beliefs, and I will no longer get into any discussions over this as their is no point in it at all. In today's world if you don't agree with the liberal left- there is never a discussion only a put down. However even that side of things should be horrified of the weaponization of our government and the FBI attacking their political opponents just before a major primary election this November. Our media should be ashamed of themselves reporting only their left-woke opinions and never the facts any more. Walter Cronkite would be horrified. I started looking for news-not opinions- elsewhere several years ago. We are turning into a third world country before our eyes, if the direction of the left right now is not stopped.
I just recently found out Biden is paying our farmers more money to NOT plant food-why?? This latest bill they are arming 87,000 IRS agents to go after us why??
I am extremely upset about what has been taking place in our country. I pray we can save our great Republic. I love my country so I can't stand by and watch what is happening without trying to save her and that means speaking out. Thank goodness I don't have children to pass this down to if she can't be saved, although I have confidence we can.
I will leave comments open hoping they will be civil.
