up early

This morning started early for me and Mag , actually more for Mag, I slayed in bed for another hour watching the news & weather while she took her shower and got ready to go to the doctor to have her "apparatus " (port) removed. We didn't have to be there till nine , but she was up at 7 . It's a simple outpatient procedure, they can actually do it in the drs. office but mag didn't want to do it there so her other choice was same day surgery.
She prefers to be out , which she was, it took about a half an hour for the removal and 45 min for recovery. Every thing went fine , there's a small dressing over the incision which will come off in three days . Not eating after midnight, of coarse she was hungry, and what can appease that kinda of hunger ? nothing like prim rib baked potato and salad ! 
There is a place close to us that has great prime rib, Martin's , it was what she needed, she only finished half but was completely satisfied, and I will get to finish the other half tonight. 
I will leave with this sign of the times, It's been windy around here, leafs are blowing , blustery. I have a big green trash can that we throw our trash into for pick up, my  suburban is parked next to it in the driveway , today I took out the Sunday paper and a small wicker trash can from my tv room. I opened the lid , emptied the can , put the can on the hood of my car, threw the papers in, and went back into the house. A while later I wondered what happened to the can ( this is the point) I forgot to bring it in with me , I went out and looked but couldn't find it ! I think it's a couple of blocks south of here.Such is the life.

warming up

  Good day everyone, well it's finally getting warmer, up to 61 today. These are a few examples of what a freeze does to the plants. The good thing is after the leaves fall off, or taken off the plants will come back like before, these plants were like this last winter, we cut the dead parts off, and they all came back.
I want to give my sister an atta girl, she had an operation on her foot today hope she recuperates fast. Mag is almost over her cold, we went to the Dr. yesterday they want to take out the port the 25th of this month, which she welcomes. Also had a little scare , a while back she had a mammogram, it came back with some calcification's we went back today for another, the doc didn't think they were anything to worry about, so we will be going back in six months. Went to wall-mart to pick up her prescriptions ,we were coming from the doc's so she was dressed nicely , as we were walking to the door I made the comment that it's nice she dressed so stylish as we were going to a very upscale store, and a man parked heard us and busted out laughing. As we entered there was a man at one of those machines with the stuffed toys, he had two in his shopping cart , Mag can't pass up one of these things. Need less to say she and the player, were quite involved discussing the finer points  of playing this game, Mag would tell "move this way" he would counter " I don't think so, hears how I do it"great fun was had by all! I gave her 50cents no results just a shrug of the shoulder.
Tomorrow is take down the decorations day, we'll see how that goes.  Peace and love to all, A prayer for Haiti and all the people involved.            Bob & Maggie

Winter has struck us like the road runner cartoon character ,While Coyote.
Cold ,cold, more than a two dog night, ( all we have is two dogs) It looks like we live in the Black forest, all my plants have turned black, except the ones we brought in.
Maggie is still with cold, but is improving.We've been hold up in the house for the past week, lucky for me there's been a lot of football games on tv.
Our inside Christmas decorations are still up, I won't take them down without Mag, I have a tendency to loose things like those. Not much happening, here, just squeezing orange juice, and making soup. Till next time... B0b& Mag

Were back

Good day everyone, the holidays are over, time to get back into the groove . Haven't put the decorations away yet , Mag caught a cold Saturday , so it's home made chicken soup, and orange juice, just so happens a couple of days before, we bought a whole bunch of oranges from a grower, were giving the old juicer a work out ! She's feeling much better today.
Here in Fla. we've been going threw a cold spell supposed to last a week or so, into the 20's at night and not above 50 daytime. Mag and I covered the sensitive plants, out side, if it was me I wouldn't, they come back next year anyway o well.
It must of got pretty cold last night , because the dogs kept scratching on the side of our bed , they wanted to sleep under the covers with us, at first Mag said no , but after putting them in there own bed three times she put them in the bed next to me and they went right to the bottom of the bed next to me, I love it!
I hope everyone had a good new year, we went to some friends for the holidays, and enjoyed it very much, Thanks to Steve & Ceci, and Pat and Marie, a good time was had by all ! Till next time peace and love to all.. Bob & Mag
