UPDATE POWER OUT in Day by Day

Doing this on my phone. Power went out at 3:20 this afternoon. Storm is picking up. We ate early and the dishwasher got through most of the cycle. So no shower tonight but we won’t be hungry. :) ...

Fast Entry in Day by Day

I don’t have time to answer notes. Right now, we are okay. The worst will come mid-afternoon through early morning hours on Monday. Youngest son is with us, KittyCat is inside, lots of freeze-dri...

Hurricane Plans Updated in Day by Day

Gas for generators, check (2 small generators plus a big boy that can power 5 homes). MREs, check (actually, they’re freeze-dried camping meals, which have become rather trendy now). Shutters to ...

Our Recent Trip in Day by Day

I tried to insert pictures using my paid photobucket account but I don’t think the links are working. Picture #1 was of a handwritten sign pointing to horse & buggy parking, and Picture #2 wa...

Generalizations in Day by Day

It’s hard not to take it personally when someone bashes Christians. Joel Osteen and his church were never designated as a hurricane shelter. Other non-designated churches who who opened up did so...

Leavin' on a Jet Plane in Day by Day

I am heading north for a week. Eldest son and his girl are house-sitting and caring for KittyCat. I was unsure about it because she is so skittish, but he made friends with her easily. If it does...


Some people travel the world to view an eclipse. I saw a partial solar eclipse in the early 60s and don’t feel the need to watch again, except on TV. There won’t be much to watch in FL anyway. We...

Health Update in Day by Day

I am pre-diabetic. My number is 5.8. Cut-off is 6.0, according to the doctor. So I’m going to try to lose some weight and watch the extra sugar. I am dangerously low on Vitamin D, so I will be ta...


There’s a class action lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines for unwanted robo calls. Anyone’s phone number that’s on the list is eligible to file for up to $900. The link is HERE. Leave out the ...


Not much going on these days. I just got back from yet another blood draw. This one should tell us if I’m diabetic or not. My blood sugar is slightly over the threshold, according to the last tes...

Just A Short One in Day by Day

I bought a new painting The title is “Island Girl in the Rain” and has joined my Island Wall. I’m very happy with her. There’s not a lot going on. We took youngest son and his brother and girlfr...

Spending Money in Day by Day

Okay, Cibos is bored, so here’s my post: I’ve been spending money lately. I splurged on some tech-y things: a turntable, a tablet, a 4 port/3 socket car cigarette lighter socket splitter adapter,...


A busy day looms, so I’ll take a few minutes now. I’m making potato salad for 50 today and chopping the ingredients for a green salad for the same dinner. I’ll put the salad together tomorrow. Th...


The “mark” on my leg seems to be healing. It looked odd, but now it is just a tiny scab with no discoloration. I intend to keep an eye on it until completely healed, but for now, I think I can wa...


Our Fourth was uneventful. We had a couple of drinks with the neighbors, then dodged the shrapnel from the other neighbors’ fireworks. They were shooting off heavy duty mortars all around the hou...


We went to an RV show today. Now I need $89,000.00. My husband said he’ll work on it. That’s what he says when I read the Real Estate section and tell him I need a million and a half, so I suspec...


I’m not sure there’s much to write about. We have no plans for the 4th of July. People stopped inviting us to functions when Nick passed away. I can’t blame them…who wants a couple of Debbie Down...


We celebrated our 40th anniversary yesterday. Our celebrations are low key now. June is a hard month for us, since it is a mixture of happy and sad. The fact that we’ve survived 40 years together...


There’s not a lot going on these days. I suppose, after all the deaths, that is a good thing! I’m working on some magazine articles, selling stuff on ebay (3 sales, so far), keeping up with the n...

Wrapping it Up in Day by Day

I finished the tribute to my brother. I’m leaving out the story of how my brother got my husband tossed in jail but am including the go-cart story. We’re holding his memorial at the posh hotel in...

PB Drama in Day by Day

Really? Someone has the need to criticize a gofundme page? Here’s an idea: if you think it might be a scam, DON’T DONATE! It’s really that simple. Referring to Simple Mind as Bruce’s “heir appare...


I’ve been asked to speak at my brother’s memorial. Writing the tribute has been tough, but here’s the rough draft: “Brother and sister relationships are unique. In many ways, [Brother] and I were...


No idea what happened. I’ve been so wrapped up in my brother’s death that just keeping up with the notes of well-wishers on FB and PB has been about all I can handle. Right now, I’m working on wh...
