Good Morning,
Yesterday, we went to see Laurels Dr. in Nashville. Laurel is set up for back surgery, sometime this month they will call.
I feel fine, I do have a persistent cough; my chest is clear.

Naturally Speaking

Good Morning,
I feel much better today. It is dark out: I did not look at the temperature but I can assume that it is cold. I'm using Dragon again, it is called Dragon Naturally Speaking. I have three cats watching me speak.
I am still coughing; I am not sure why this cough is persistent but it is. It is annoying but the doctor says I am fine.
Laurel is up.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking

Good Morning,
I am writing this with speech recognition software. I feel much better today, mom is still sleeping. Earlier this morning I was listening to Santana, very nice. So far I haven't touched the keyboard just spoke into the microphone. I find this odd and a little noisy but as long as no one is here to listen to this it doesn't matter. Now I am going to go over to the Internet and find a Dragon logo to place at the left of this paragraph.

Feeling Better

Feeling better, Laurel is 3 days behind me but she is doing better.( I had bronchitis and she has the flu ) I could not tell the difference since we both got it from the same little lady at a Christmas Party.
We both had blinding headache and dry coughing to start, high temperatures and chills. I could not read and we both drank the whole world of soups and teas.
This is my second day of doing chores and the only thing that I am doing is coughing up goop.

May the Holidays Bring You Comfort and Good Health

Good Morning,
I am feeling better and seem to headed in the right direction for the Holidays to come. We have our Christmas Shopping Done and we are just waiting for sound of a Sleigh and Holiday Bells.

Then and Now

Good Morning,
I am happy about cough syrups with expectorants. Our doctor knows that I fill up easily and I need something to clear my lungs. Because of the valve (muscle) that directs air to my lungs and opens to let me eat gets mixed up my lungs fill up with junks and I end up with bronchitis. Laurel ends up with stomach aches but I have to clear my lungs. I can assume it has something to do with Pasadena Smog. The smoggy photo is 1946 and the other is sometime in this era. I lived near the mountians and I could not see them when I lived there. I can assume that the weather is much better today in Pasadena.
0800
I have been up awhile and I am washing the linen and bedroom covers. Enough decay!
I am tired but I still have the kitchen floor to steam clean. My ancle hurts. 
Above photo 1946 (when I lived there) and today below.

Nice Sleeping

Good Morning,
Laurel has the flu and I had a cold. Same doctor different days, it must be like tell the flu vaccine folks to do it right. Yes she went to see the doctor.
Same systems. Terrible headache, dry coughing, ache all over and cannot read or look at anything.
Well I am over it but my lungs are clearing up which I like since I had bronchitis at one time and I do not like being like that.
Laurel is sleeping and that was something that she had a hard time doing because of back pain and generally feeling like horse crap. Her coughing has eased up. Hopefully her chest will clear up.
They (the doctors office) said they saw over a 100 folks before noon and our appointment was at 2:30 pm.

Feeling Better


Good Morning,

I do have a head ache this morning but I think I am hung over from the cough syrup. I am not coughing as much as I was.

Just a Wee Bit Sick

Good Afternoon,
I awoke coughing and with a terrible headache. It was a dry harsh cough and very consistant. Laurel took my temperature at 11 AM and it was 101 degrees; she took it two hours later and it was 99 degrees. I feel better but I am not sure what the morning will bring.

Birth Mark

Good Morning,
I have a cold this morning; I do not know where I got it but a lady at the NARFE meeting the other day said to most of us that she had a cold and hoped we would not get it. I am normally very strong about colds but somehow I am weakened and I did get a cold. It has been awhile since I have any sickness but I have a mild version and I am coughing a little too much. I have a birthmark on my belly and it indicates to me by it itching when I am in a weakened state. I never scratch it. Never.

Good Morning,
Sitting quietly; mom is sick today and resting in her chair and listening to music. I am sitting and typing. The cats ate and are quiet; some are grooming and some are sleeping.
There is peace is this abode. I see videos and on the spot reports of violence. Is violence part of your environment or our these violent places abnormal. Am I missing something or did I just leave the violence for peace.

Good Morning,
I am up early because i went to bed early. I watched the Kentucky game last night and it seems to me that other teams are going to have to start using the 10 starter rotation.

Good Morning,
This morning someone brought to my attention the ability of lobbyists to control our country. I have talked about it before and it will take a vote in congress to outlaw our forth branch of government.

It is raining

Good Morning,
I had a night that mentally was not pleasant; full of doubt and a little troublesome. It is true that I do not work. Chores hurt. I just want to see the planet and type and surf. Big chores are not for me anymore; that I found troubling. That did feel like a little depression. Seeing it as so is not unpleasant as I understand that I am older and I do not want old age pain. 
It is morning and I am listening to pleasant sounds of music and life in our warm home in Western Kentucky and everything is good. Savages are not welding curved long blades in our community.

It is Wet Outside


Good Morning,

37 degrees and I think light rain; it very dark outside at the moment. I am looking at NASA TV; Laurel told me that NASA is getting ready to launch a rocket. The rocket looks as big as the shuttle.
I feel good this morning and I am eating normally.

In Todays Economy

Good Morning,
Living alone as a older person is almost impossible unless to you have substantial savings.
If I was alone I would find another human being to share our home in this economy. 
***
Well I have my Christmas shopping done. Laurel is still working on her shopping. We may do some mutual shopping.
I may clean off our spot to place some Holy Day Environmental displays for the Holidays.
***
I feel good after yesterday when my back was aching because of the shopping. Lifting bags hurts me for about a day then I am OK.
