Now on top of everything, I get a call from Poo last night. He wanted to know if I had heard anything about him from anyone. No I hadn't.

It seems he went down to NJ for a short vacation. He became very ill. The person he was with called one of his friends in Vermont and that friend called the ambulance company from Vermont to go get him. It seems he had advanced pneumonia and they rushed him to the hospital. Poo said at one point he was 30 minutes from dying. He was in ICU for five days. When he got discharged, two of his friends from Vermont, drove down to NJ and brought him home. One of them drove his vehicle back. He will be out of work for several weeks while he recovers and get his strength back. I asked him why wasn't I notified. He told me that he didn't want anyone to call me as there was nothing I could do with him in NJ.

It never ends. It was a good thing both Spike and The Pirate were here with me when Poo called me. I am going to call Poo later today when I am calmer.

Good grief. Just because your kids are grown and out the door on their own, doesn't mean they still don't need you. The worries never stop.

Chief, glad that you are safe. That sounded really scary.

(((Hugs Addie))). I sure hope that pain goes away soon.

Your'e right Addie, once a parent, always a parent, even when you can see your grown kids being stubborn, and hard to deal with (roofing project
In any case, I only suffered some sore muscles, and a scraped up leg when a bone-headed neighbor helped me get the 35 foot ladder off of the house, and onto the ground. He insisted I let my end drop, I said it's not a good idea, he demanded I let it drop. I did. He acted as a pivot point, as in the center section of a see-saw. My end went skyward, caught my pantleg, and hoisted me into the air. I landed on my back, all good, judo techniques still work fine. But the bottom of the ladder scraped up my left shin in a couple of places. There's a couple of scabs in the making. To change an old "HeeHaw" line - if it weren't for bad help, I'd have no help at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me."

The roof is done. The ladder has been taken back to the hardware store, for an extra day's rent (stupid weather) of $24. But it's done, and is supposed to be good for 40 years. I'll be 98 by the time it needs to be replaced again. I'm sleeping in tomorrow.

This morning my DC notifications started appearing in my Spam folder again, along with an email from my DIL, whose emails have gone into my regular mailbox for years. I logged off and back on again. We'll see if that helps like it did last time. Is AOL playing games with me again?

Logging off and back on didn't help, but as of this morning my notifications AND emails from my DIL are back where they belong. I give up trying to understand why.

yesterday out of blue the crack appear in the glass on my Galaxy 3, then all of a sudden 3 or 4 more showed up. Ok, I understand if I dropped the phone or something, but out of the blue? I do not know. The phone is working just fine, but i'm afraid it is not going to last long. I honestly have not been happy with it after I switched from iPhone. Looking forward switching back to iPhone, I only wish stupid Apple would just come out and say it already when the new is coming out. Roomers have it that it is going to be a big phone, the only reason I switched to Galaxy to begin with. It's kind of annoying. Really.

Last night my cable company went on the disabled list for my computer. I can still get my TV service though. So I can't access any files through Comcast. So irritating. Spike stopped by for this nightly visit and said his was down also. It has been 24 hours. There had better be an adjustment on my bill.

When Spike came I was sleeping. Teddy jumped up on my bed and barked right in my ear. That woke me right up.
