The day after

I hope all of you had a great Christmas day and got some of the things that you wanted.  Some will have gifts that they will have to exchange. The stores will be crowded once again,so it might be the best to wait a few days to return that gift for exchange.
Anyway now we have to get back to doing the things that we did before getting excited about Christmas.  Those that are going to your place of work be careful and don't be daydreaming of the good time you had of being off work for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Christmas Day

I want to wish everyone of you a very Merry Christmas on this very special day.
I hope you will have a good time with your family and those people you are with today.
Nancy had an appointment with the doctor at the spine clinic yesterday. He told her that she really needed an operation,but he was afraid to do it because of her kidney problems as she is in stage 4 of kidney failure. So he will try doing some other things to ease her pain.
After that we stopped into Walmart to get a few "goodies"to snack on. From there it was to the roadside fruit and vegetable stand. Then it was time to eat and that was to Bob Evans where I had a coupon for buy one get one free dinner. Gota love those coupons.
The rest of the evening was just relaxing watching tv(me) and in the big easy chair(Nancy)on the computer.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Almost Christmas time

Its looking like Christmas around the park with all the lights that are up on the street.
If you have lights up watch so you won't overload the circuit.  I think thats what I did. Even though I had less lights than the previous years. Last night we were watching tv and everything went off. So I go out to check the breaker,sure enough the breaker had done what it was suppose to do. I flipped the breaker on and nothing came on,but out of the corner of my eye I saw a flash under the house. Wow,the breaker didn't kick off but we didn't have power. we only have 30 amps on the little place so I thought the main line had shot into. So I turned the breaker off and said that is work for tomorrow. Checking it out this morning,it was in the main line. Whoever did the wiring left the original plug on the wiring and added a short wire with a 30amp receptacle and just plugged it up. That worked for a short time but finally got too hot and shorted out. 
I cut out the wiring and did a hard splice of the wiring,so everything is ok now.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Absolutely nothing

The title of the blog is about what is happening.  You know its like just sitting and watching the grass grow. Or maybe in a small town going down to the street corner and watching the traffic light change colors.
The cool weather has finally made it down to Florida. The last few mornings it has been down in the high 40's with tomorrow morning the same. Of course it comes up to near 70 during the day so not real bad. By the weekend it will be back to the 80's so not complaining here(well maybe a little).
The park is still filling up with the rv,s coming in and  the people in the park models arriving each day.
I was browsing around the stores the other day and noticed that quite a few of the new electric space heater didn't have a thermostat on them. Just a low-high heat setting knob. I don't think that would be a very good type of heater.  Turn it on to heat and after heating turn it back off,then back on after the room got cool. Hey wait a minute that would be a good way to spend a cool day. Naw I can think of better ways to spend a day.
Here is a photo of the quarter moon I took a couple of weeks ago. I took it with the old Samsung HMX-H100NXAA HD camcorder I got off ebay. I used the digital zoom that is on the camera without any added telephoto lens.
Thanks for stopping and have a great day.

Doctor Follow-up

We have just been doing the everyday things that you people are doing.  Going to the store every couple of days.
Yesterday was our pizza day and once again the Little Caesar's "Hot and Ready" pizza was not very good. The guy that owns the pizza place also has 4 other Little Caesar Pizza restaurants. I told him about the pizza's that I was getting and he said he had been getting other complaints on that location. After that we bought a couple more and they were real good until yesterday.
We to the doctor to have a follow-up on our MRI's and my bloodwork. Everything on my bloodwork was good and the MRI showed I have arthritis and tendonitis. So its just pain and nothing major.
Nancy's MRI on her spine is about the same thing she had an operation for 25 years ago. She has   degenerative spine disease resulting in a pinched nerve,which will no doubt require another operation.
The weather here is cooling off a bit and the people in the park are putting up their lights for Christmas so it is looking nice to walk around and seeing all the lights.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Weekend stuff

Friday Nancy took back the blood pressure monitor that she wore for 24 hours. While we were out we went up to the flea market to buy some vegetables.
Then we went to Green Key beach to sit on a bench and enjoy the sun and warm breeze.
From there I had to go to Walmart to get a few things while Nancy remained in the car because by that time she was tired.
Yeserday was game day for me. I watched a couple of good college football games.

So So

Hello there,yeah I'm still kicking. Mostly the same things have been happing. Wenesday Nancy and I both had and MRI.  Her back and my shoulder. She has had pain for year and didn't want to maybe go through an operation again. She had an operation 30 years ago,but her pain is so bad she decided anything that would help she will try it.
Nancy went to her new kidney doctor also on wednesday and she likes the different doctor. One thing she like about the new doctor is she can understand her very well. So we shall she how this works out.
This is the morning that greeted us several days ago. The sun came out and the fog disappeared soon after.  Our temps are in the high 70's and low 80's for the next week. So its good to been in Florida this time of year. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
