RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It's the start of another day. I hope all is well with everyone. I have fire wood that won't burn no matter what I do. I guess it's too green. Anyway I have given up on trying to burn it so I guess we are done for the winter with the fireplace. Yesterday our neighbor found Dixie's collar in the open field where Dixie lost it several months back. It's too big for her so I guess I need to take up some links so it fits better. Our weather forecast is for winter weather to come in over the weekend. No snow or ice, just colder temperatures. more like winter than the warm temperatures we have been having. There kitties are still here. I brought in some cat houses for them and a heating pad. They seem to enjoy the heating pad a lot. I'm not sure of the houses as they sleep on top of them more than they go inside of them. I am feeling okay this morning. I don't know if I should take myself off the prednisone or wait until the doctor tells me to get off of them. I am pain free and am doing okay getting around, just worry about the side effects of the stuff. I am gaining weight and feel tired all the time which I think is a side effect of prednisone. I want to get the camper out, but just don't feel like messing with it. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good report from electrocardiogram. The test says I am doing great. No problems at all. No recommendations from the doctor. So I guess I just keep on doing whatever it os I have been doing. The polymyalgia is back and I am on the prednisone again. I go to see the doctor for that January 22. This morning I feel great. No pain, just the effects of the prednisone. I slept great last night. I was up only twice to pee, That's a record for me. Tuesday night I must have been up 5-6 times, I lost count but yesterday morning I felt very tired when I work up. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for ow wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fir babies a hug fro me and be sure to tell someone you love them. OH BTW, it's warm outside this morning, but the weather man says winter will be coming our way this weekend,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Well LSU was too much for Clemson last night. It was a good first half and them LSU figured out Clemson's game plan and it was all down hill for Clemson after that. Maybe next year if Clemson can keep it's starters. This morning is a good morning for me. Not too much pain as the prednisone wears off. Just wanted to lay in bed this morning under the nice warm covers. Dixie came and joined me for a short morning nap. Dixie loves to snuggle in close. She is such a sweet heart. It's very foggy here this morning. reminds me of Nova Scotia. WE woke up one morning and the fog was so thick you couldn't see the end of the camper. It stayed that way most of the day. It's warm this morning at 65 degrees. I guess that is the reason for the fog with all of the humidity. The geese will be walking instead of flying this morning. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. WE had a thunderstorm roll through last night that was strong. The temperature is very warm for this rime of year. To\his morning the sun is out, The sky is bright blue and it's 65 degrees. I am coming off the prednisone this morning and I fell kind of strange. I won't make it to church this morning as I seem to be nursing a hangover. The after effects of the meds is awful. I used up all the prednisone and now I have to adjust to life without it. Boy did I get Dandy Dan confused last night. I told him the National Championship between LSU and Clemson was last night when it is Monday night. I stay so confused about what day it is lately. Can't seem to get my mind straight with the facts. Okay I am going to close for now wishing everyone a blessed da day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to yell someone you love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Last night Sue fell walking the dogs. She cut her face and has a black eye. Her right knee is very sore this morning. She said it was because of low blood sugar. This morning I have an appointment to have an electrocardiogram. Nothing wrong, just something the doctor wanted done for whatever reason. I final got an appointment with a rheumatologist for Jan 22. Then we are going somewhere with the camper. WE are trying to get the neighbor to take responsibility of the vats. After a meeting of the minds yesterday Sue made an agreement with Steve to take the heated bed and put it on his front porch so they will be able to stay warm. However Steve's wife must have taken exception to having the bed on their front porch and mover it somewhere else. Anyway the kitties couldn't find the bed so they returned to our front porch last and slept on the cold cement. I felt sorry for them and put a towel out for them to sleep on. Today I will go get them a heated cat house and put it on the porch for them. Okay that enough for now. I am going to close wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a ug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them

Two different things. but so simulas when you look at the icons in dim light or bright light. I'm getting too old for all of this new stuff.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good afternoon everyone. I don't know what I would do if not for the prednisone. but the Side effects aren't good. I am pain free at a price, but then everything has its price. Today I have been nothing but lazy. Can't get up the energy to do anything. just want to sit in the chair and snooze and eat everything in the fridge or cabinets. It has been a day to sit inside by the fire place watching the logs burn. The fur babies have been in and out all day. Like flies on a screen door, There are those who want in and those who want out. WE switched services with the phones yesterday. What a nightmare. changing accounts. changing passwords. changing emails addresses. Sue says we will save money in the long run. Okay How long is the long run? The weather today is very unusual. It has been very windy. The outside temperature has been very mild, but the wind makes it cold. The fire in the fireplace has felt good. The wood has been burning very slowly as it was good and wet from the rain we got yesterday. Sue has napped most of the day while I have held down the lounge chair. I am hoping to go somewhere next week with the camper just to get away if nothing else. Walter I see you are in Alabama. Hope the weather is nice and you are enjoying yourselves. Watch out for the snakes. The cotton mouths are dangerous. If it wasn't so far we might would like to join you and Garland. It's about 500 miles for us one way. I said I am done traveling that far anymore. Wish I was a bit younger and a little mre energetic. Okay it's about supper time so I will close wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug foe me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Well if yesterday was a good day, today is just the opposite. Yesterday Sue decided to change our phone service to Spirit from Verizon. What a nightmare. nothing is simple anymore, Voice mail doesn't work. Don't know how to answer the phone when it rings. Just crazy. Okay I need to get going before I tear something up. Have a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone yo love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I feel so much better this morning. The meds are kicking in and I am pain free right now. Thinking about a short trip to Waynesboro next week to Magnolia Springs State park or either to Cherokee NC. Both are about the same distance so It would be an easy trip with the camper. I am getting a lot of backlash from resigning the deacon board. Family thinks I should stay on and do whatever I can when I feel like doing it. Chairman of the deacons feels the same way. I don't know if that is best for the church. It seems selfish to me if I cannot do the job as it is intended. So I am still praying about it to see how God leads in the matter. There are days I feel good and then there are days I feel terrible. Just hard to know what to do. Georgia won their game last night, finishing a good year. Two looses in their year put a hurt on them, especially the game in Carolina. A non ranked team beats a team that is ranked is not good news. Lsu is going to be a tough game for Clemson. Don't know if Clemson can win that one/ lSU is a power house this year. The Old Fella Rescue is doing good. They have had a great year, still going strong thanks to the volunteers that keep it going. Margie Riggs is doing a great job keeping the puppy train moving to the North East Animal Shelter. That is a God sent organization that takes so many of the Old Fella rescues each month. Rthey deserve any donations they get as they continue saving the lives of so many dogs and puppies. Thank God the work continues and is doing so well. Okay I need to get moving. We have to take one of the cats to the vet's office as it seems to have gotten into a fight with the opossum and the cat has sustained an injury to it's left front leg. There is a hole in the leg where it was bitten in the scuffle. I guess it was over the food bowl. That's the only thing I can think of that they would fight over. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I watched the game until half time. The real turning point was a "targeting" call on an OSU defensive back followed by a couple of other penalties. That got Clemson going. OSU took the lead with a few minutes left in the game, but Clemson drove the field at the end to make the winning score. Good game. If the targeting call wasn't called. Clemson would of punted and there would probably be a different outcome. The defense back that had the penalty was ejected and he is very good. His replacement had a rough game. I watched Georgia get the same kind of penalty in the South Carolina game that eventually cost Georgia the game. But the final thing that cost Georgia was when they didn't kick the field goal when they could have at the Carolina forty yard line.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Bad day today. Went to see the doctor. He said he is trying to get me into a rheumatologist, but they are all booked up until After February. So he did the next best thing he could do. He gave me a prescription for prednisone. That helps tremendously with the pain. I will be able to sleep tonight free from pain, but not free from trips to the bathroom to pee. The prednisone runs my blood sugar up so that causes me to pee more from high blood sugar. I had rahthe suffer from that than the pain. Good nigh all

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone I am iin so much pain tis morning from the Polymyalgia. I am out of prednisone so I will have to wait until tomorrow to get a refill when the doctor's office is open. Well Clemson won last night after I went to bed. Clemson was losing when I went to bed. Don't know how it all played out as I was too tired to watch. But Clemson must have had a strong come back in the second half. Sorry Dan, maybe next year for Ohio State. I have to go so I will close wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hig for me and nbe sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Lily is back with us for a few days. She has made herself at home. being bossy and making sure all the other fur babies behave. Last night Suzie made a statement about Lily's being here. When we went to bed, Suzie went into the family room to sleep, She doesn't care for Lily being here, but that is as much as she is going to say about the matter. It 44 degrees outside this morning. Winter hasn't been that cold this year. Yesterday it was in the high 60's. Today it will much of the same. The weatherman says it will be clear skies and warm temperatures today and rain will move it Sunday. Hope all is well with everyone. This morning is much the same for me. I woke up to low blood sugar which means the prednisone is wearing off. I stopped taking the prednisone a few days ago. So far the pain has been minimal but it is still there, but not so bad. The increase in the blood pressure medicine is working on me big time. I get dizzy if I stand up quickly or bend over with my head down. Think I am going to stop taking all the pills. Too many pills to keep up with and so many things going on with me right now, some of it must be side effects from all the meds. So as of this morning I have taken myself off the meds, so we will wait and see what happens, Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and n=be sure to tell somoen you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Sad decision Richard, but I think that's something we all will face sooner or later... So true. We all have to decide when to hang it up, and I hope I have the common sense to know when that time is. It will be sad, but having the memories of all the wonderful trips and times we have had is something precious. Yesterday I drove to Tractor Supply. Sue went with me. I made two mistakes that could have been critical had not she been with me and called my attention to what I was about to do. I know it's time for me to quit driving pulling the big rig. It's hurts to know that our road trips have come to a end. But the good news is it has come gently an not by some catastrophic mistake Walter I wish you and Garland many more miles of Rving. Garland will let you know when it's time to quit. I am sure she is watching as yo0u drive. It's hard to sit and watch and not say something when things are amiss. Just keep your eyes on the road, your foot on the accelerator or brake, hands on the steering wheel and the cell phone in the console box.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is the day after Christmas. It's time to exchange the gifts for those that either fit or for those you just want to exchange for something else. The stores and streets will be busy with folks on the go. Sue is out this morning to exchange some things. Wish her well. I don't know how I am doing. The new blood pressure medicine is messing with me. I think it's too strong. Anyway I will see how I do today, Afraid to drive myself anywhere as I have dizzy spells. The eye is doing great. My vision is very good. It will get out and enjoy the beautiful day God has sent our way. It's going to be very warm today with a high of 65 degrees. This will give the porch kitties a chance to get warm and enjoy the day. The opossum is still hanging around. He is so fat he waddles when he walks. I guess it's the over abundance of cat food. He comes and cleans out the bowl every night. Sue and I have been bringing it inside for the least few nights. I have watched the kitties when the opossum is on the porch. They don't seem to mind it coming as they just lay on the bed and watch it eat their food. There is also a young one that comes by. Don't want them to get too used to us as they can cause damage to the yard and shrubbery as they borrow into the ground and leave holes. We have four kitties now. they really belong to the new neighbor, but for some reason prefer our house to theirs. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Another Christmas come and gone. Yeah! Thank God for all of His blessings. Now to start counting the days until next Christmas.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Merry Christmas everyone. It's a beautiful day here in the deep south. I hope all ia well with everyone and Santa was good to you. Santa brought me the series from the Road to Avonlea. I will enjoy watching these as I have always enjoyed the program when it was on TV. I am having a problem adjusting to the new blood pressure medicine. Yesterday my blood pressure dropped to a point I became faint. I cut the pill in half this morning hoping that will be okay. Anyway I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas to all the FOOFS and to all the fur babies that have been rescued and found forever homes this year

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Merry Christmas everyone. No pain tonight. Eye is doing well. New blood pressure medication is a little too much. Had to have Sue's help today or fall to the floor. I am going to cut the pill in half and see what happens. Tonight I am sitting in the lounge chair with Dixie in my lap. There is a fire in the fireplace so it is cozy while we watch the hours go by waiting on Christmas day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone today is a good day. No pain. eye sight is good. It's very overcast and rain is expected today and tomorrow. It's not going to be too cold so we don't expect any bad weather as far as ice and snow. It's going to be a Merry Christmas. Son Scott and his girlfriend came yesterday. We went out for lunch, driving the 72 Lincoln. Had a great time before coming home. Got help from Scott hauling firewood up to the house. Stocking up so I don't have to do it in the rain today and tomorrow. I hope all is well with everyone and you are ready to enjoy a great Christmas. I am going to close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Also be sure to celebrate the reason for Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ. As stated before we will not be going to Hilton Head this year, going to stay home and just take it easy. See ys, take care and we love you all. Charles and Charlotte you are in my prayers. May you have peace and joy during this Christmas season.
