  14. hi to all i see pineknott and katiebug tampa and carole and kristy too in my manic mirrror lol ~ you kristy and katie are welcome glad you liked them and to everyone a hearty dreary morning here but supposed to climb to 50 degrees so that is a good thng The snow almost all in our yard anyway melted yesterday but they say a new storm moving in soon handy had ro clean out a downspout or two yesterday that was clogged with ice and the neighbors helicopters from their tree grrr i wish that old tree was taken down one day im sure it will fall on their house!! ah so much to worry about so little time lol not much happening here as of yet got to finish up the movie Manhunter today about the Una-bomber Ted Kocinski which im half way or more thrrough on netflix and Travelers, about time travelers half way tooI just got tired last night and couldn't stay awake any longer so i have paused them both one on my laptop and one on my bedroom tv and the nice thing about it when i turn netflix back on it will pick up exactly where i paused it so wont miss a thing lol i watched one movie the other day called The Wave too which was about a disastrous tsunami wave which was interesting too i remember all the disaster shows like oh i dunno ,Towering Inferno and Backlflash and avalanches and there were a ton of them years ago lol and Poseidon and Titanic and all of those i wonder if they are on netflix too lol and Earthquake lol i think i watched every obe of them in the day more than once too lol so that is the plan i guess does anyone know the name of another good movie and ill see if i can get it on netflix they hive the newest star wars what is that called the last jedi or rouge something i forget but its on there i got pretty lost when yhey started going backwards with the story big mistake in my opinion so stopped watching abything Star wars related altogether lol t so open to suggestions lol the world of netflix and hulu and two more movie vaults are at my finger tips lol well im off to get a few things started at least talk to you latwe have a happy day and happy bday Missy!!
  15. oh carole we only have maxie now the others passed on before we moved here mostly they were all about the same age but all lived a pampered loved life with us and we miss them all still well i didnt watch the golden globes the other night who won what lol i watched another couple of episodes of manhunt the una-bomber then went to sleep i will most likely finish that up today sometime Talked to my sis and she seemed calm but her speech was still like she was heavily drugged i dont know anything else cept they cannot continue chemo till she gets healthier anyway we talked a bit but it was short as a nurse came inn for something so she let me go i told her to have the nurse check her phone too as i had tried calling her room for two days straight and she gave me some crap about the phones weren't working but what i suspect is that the jerk probably un plugged them when he left tp go home he never gives her my messages either just erases them they are not married and he is not any kin to her so i am thinking about reporting him but still just thinking hopefully something will come of the fact that he is the one that should be making her eat something and that is why she got in this mess as he is never there always running around for himself so basically its his fault hers too for not having the sense to find something to eat if he is not there you know but she just doesn't do that for herself so if he cannot take care of her then it is time to find a place for her that will but i dont want to upset her while she is in the hospital either for i fear if she keeps up the death and suicide talk there they will just put her in the mental ward for a while on suicide watch so im stuck for now but soon will have some more answers i hope I have never liked him which is what is between us as i have known that he doesn't now nor ever has treated her very well since the beginning that is why i am totally at arms with him most of the time we dont talk at all my other sister stays cordial with him only to glean what info she can from him she too dislikes him very much to put it mildly on to other things huh oh kristy i got a good start on the white squares for you and when finished with 10 i will post them out ok so you can take those off you list 10 down and a lot more to go for you huh lol gotta ru latter ok take care
