They are getting it contained. New fires in Idaho are popping up. It's my last day in the camp, I can't handle the smoke anymore. I'll be getting the dinner set up and catch a ride at 5pm back to town.

Shower first, sleep in my own bed...then make-up work at work for the weekend.

I can take anti inflammatory tablets and use ice as he said the knee is very inflamed on the side
(((Hugs Kylie)))

Does glucosamine help on the arthritis? I've been told it helps prevent loss of cartilage, but I don't really know.

When you say you need to walk "...different tracks each time..." are you talking about walking on a treadle? Would water walking be a good exercise for you?

I sure hope you find ways take care of the pain and that any tear, heals itself soon.

Good morning, Alix. It's been beautiful here. Amazingly so.

I just polished off the last of my bacon from the freezer on two sesame seed buns with lettuce and mayo. Shortly I'll be firing up the WSM and putting 10 lbs of bellies on.

I tried to go to sleep. I guess I am just not tired enough yet. Will try again later. I called my daughter. She started her chemo for this month, last night. She goes for her next MRI on 9/13 and then goes to see her oncologist a couple of days later to get the results. That is when they will decide if she is to continue on the chemo or not. She is returning to work part time on 9/19. It will be for 20 hours a week. Just enough to keep her medical coverage. She is feeling good. She mentioned that she is forgetting a lot of things. I don't know if it is from the chemo or something else. We all tend to forget words as we get older, but she is forgetting things she has been doing for years. That has me worried. I told her to let her doctor know.

I am going to my grandson's house Saturday for the whole day. He graduates from the firefighter's academy and they are having a party. I will get to see three of my great grandchildren. He is certified as an EMT also, so that will be included in his new pay rate. One more family getting on their feet finally.

My youngest daughter's youngest child who recently got married is moving to Kentucky at Fort Campbell to be with her new husband. He is done with basic training.

This family is finally getting their act together. I was beginning to think it would never happen.

Now for a cup of coffee.

You're amazing! I haven't done any putting-by since the kids were born. And about those power rates? Crazy, isn't it. Our first home had a "load demand meter" that measured peak usage at the time it occurred, then was reset to zero when they read the meter. You make one "oops" and you're screwed for the entire billing cycle. Hated it - looks like the electric industry is pushing it for use across the country. Grr....

Good luck to him (and you).
You're right pac...kinda. I mean if he was flipping burgers at least we'd be getting a little "me time" away from each other!

Thanks Kylie! Unfortunately, my crossed fingers didn't seem to be doing any good for your knee. A few years back I had a small accident - on vacation - in Yosmite Park in California; the doctor in the ER thought I had torn my ACL and put me in a knee brace. When I got home to our own doctor he found out that all I had done was sprain my knee really badly. BUT keeping it immobilized help the sprain heal quicker. If you're supposed to rest and you keep doing too much walking around I suggest you have Steve duct tape a couple straight boards along side your knee!

If you got the land, might as well grow some food...and if you grow some food, well, you might as well put food away for the winter...although it is very tiring doing this in the middle of the night. And I refuse to steam up the house and run the A/C during the day with TOU power rates. They call our meters "smart meters." Not everyone in Ontario has one. I was one of the "lucky" ones to get mine almost the first month they installed them. Seven p.m. Fridays has a whole new meaning for me...lowest rates until 7:00 a.m. Monday. The countdown has already begun. I still have tomatoes and more corn to do.

Sounds like trying to play Whack-a-Mole - just when you bash one down, another pops up. Hope fire season ends early for you guys out west...



I'm heading out to grocery shop. If I get out soon enough I'll stop at the library for a book and a DVD. If I take long enough at the store I can time it to hit the very new, very local (next town from us) brewer that opened for business last month. He's tapping a new beer he's trying, a doppelbock, and it would be nice to have some fresh-drawn beer to go with the grilled dogs.
