Nice pic, that is a beautiful area you live at.
I am doing fine just took a little break. I have been researching online for another subject I am thinking about getting into. After spending so much time online. I get burned out. So haven't been here for awhile.

For some reason I have hundreds of snails all over outside. They really seem to like my cactus and every morning I have about 10 on the garage door. Had 5 on the mailbox the other day. Never saw a snail until this year.

Thanks Cathie, I could go back to PT now. My doctor won't give me permission because I have to many underlying conditions. I am going to order a workout mat to do some of my floor exercises to strengthen my back. I need to get ready because next April my 4 son's and I are going on a private fishing charter to the Dry Tortugas. We will be sleeping on the boat for 3 days. We are going 75 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico from Key West. I am not sure when I can go back to PT.So I need to start at home.
Wow Ray, sounds like a great fishing trip & adventure. Stay with the PT!

That sounds like a goal and a lot of fun. Since it's part of your recovery, it would be nice if the insurance could supply that and possibly something elevated. Getting off the floor sounds hard after exercising. But best hopes and prayers for all of it.

Good evenooning all. I brought my work home with me again. Half a dozen starlings raised by staff and volunteers at the rescue have been released to join the many in and around my garden. There are at least 40 visiting my feeders so they’ll join a good size flock :)

I have all three of his Cinder paintings on 8x10 prints... I’m going to get a big poster frame tomorrow and make a collage to hang... I’ll post a pic when I get it done..
Did the prints turn out half way decent? Our jpegs aren't the best. Some are from my phone and others are from his iPad. He really liked the picture of Cinder's play date. He wouldn't quit until I printed it so he could paint it. Doing this is really helping with his morale. He's used to being really active. He's always gone shopping on his own. I can't let him do any of his normal activities because he doesn't know how to stay safe. The only place he's been is his small church since the middle of March. Thanks.

I sent a photo of it to my sister ( she owns the other bulldog) and told her the story behind the artist and you... She is a family practice doctor and and wants to display a print in her office.. she was really moved !
That would be nice. What's really funny is my brother is wall papering planet earth with his cartoon art.😛

Well...my Melita porcelain pore over coffee maker handle broke. Just to make a long story short...I have to have my lovely coffee break in the morning.Sooo I found a stainless steel one I like even better...but then I had to order a tea pot with a gooseneck to become a barrista. The coffee this little thing makes is delicious. It's a Yitelle. No more trash from me making my morning Joe...

This last one was really clear! They didn’t have the frame at Walmart yesterday so I’ll have to check some other stores for my big collage project.. I am sure glad he enjoys it. Cause I absolutely love them.. they are so special! My sister was really quick to say that we needed to provide him with more pictures ... He’s got a real talent that’s very fun to see.

Well of course it’s gotta meet her approval! It’s been warm enough here that Toretto decided to bed down in his barrel. I had to drag him out last night and put him in the night box.. he’s getting to heavy for me to do this!
