Welcome anthony and Trish to a rather new feline discussion group. Trish I'd be interested in hearing about the photo you posted: it's quite whimsical! Anthony...how many felines are yo owned by? Continue

Sorry about your car A/C! I hope the repair isn't too expensive.

BritBox sounds like a fantastic gift! I adore Britcoms and of course British movies and plays, etc. In Britain, it's actual talent that makes you a well-know celebrity, not looks like in America. :>)

SO glad to hear that Maxx has recovered! I know how happy you'll be to get back to the barn.

Very cool about the new bed. My ancient Sleep Number bed has finally given up the ghost but I don't have the money to replace it right now. How is your Hybrid bed? I hear the memory foam can be hot. Is it? Is it firm?  What do you like best about it and what do you dislike, if anything? A high bed is good for me--I'm taller and have a little difficulty getting up, so the height really helps.

Technology can be such a pain. Yeah, when I've used an app for talking to my doctor, it never works through the whole appointment. Do you think the satisfaction of serving as a community board member will far outweigh the hassle?

I'm glad you're getting out when you can and also seeing friends. I love that you and your friends had "cocktail" hour outside. I'd been isolated for a long time before the pandemic, but this COVID-19 isolation is starting to wear on me. Keep walking when you can--it's such good exercise.

You and yours take care as well.

WOW, Carol! That is a lot to deal with, but it seems like you're figuring it all out and knocking each challenge down as you encounter it. That's very admirable! I'm glad your son is there to help as much as possible. My thoughts and good vibes will continue to be with you as you heal.

Happy very belated Birthday, btw! I know your pre-birthday celebration was good (friends, grilled cheese, and all), and I hope the actual day was even better.

I'm sorry to hear that Maxx has diarrhea. I hope it's been resolved with no dire diagnosis assigned to it. Maxx is a good old age, as you pointed out, but he hopefully has more years ahead of him.

Yeah, everybody's dealing with Zoom lately. I hear it's sort of a pain to learn and set up correctly, but once you do it's quite effective for meetings. I don't think I knew you were on your community board--is that an elected or appointed position or volunteer? My friend, who is the City Attorney for some cities and villages in upstate, is on the Common Council of the city in which he lives. They've been using Zoom for meetings. Apparently, it has its advantages. Haha!

Well, keep exercising and doing what the doctors tell you, and staying involved will definitely keep your spirits up (although that doesn't seem to be a problem for you). Get out when you can to visit the barn. And stay safe!

Your welcome, I hope your day was good.

Happy Birthday!

Oh my gosh--that's terrible, Carol!  I'm so sorry that happened! I'm very thankful, however, that you're on the mend, albeit a very long and probably painful healing process. Do the doctors predict you'll be fully back to normal at the end of the process, in terms of walking at least? My VERY best wishes for a faster than expected healing.

Can you drive still?

I also know how much you'll miss riding. Hopefully, you can at least go visit the barn and breath in some good horse smells and kiss some muzzles. Maybe be Carrot Mama to everyone. Maybe watch some clinics, if any are offered. Or even get back into judging. Can you still volunteer at GallupNY (doing something which isn't strenuous)?

I forget--does your son live with you? I know from experience how much harder EVERYTHING is when you're alone, and how much more thought has to be put into everything you do. Please take it as easy as you can and be as careful as you can! Having grab bars installed everywhere and non-slip surfaces applied is GOOD! Geez, whoever said that these are our golden years must have been rich, happily married, and under 50. Haha!

Write when you get bored or frustrated or just want to talk. It seems to me life should get easier as we age, not harder.

I'm glad you finally got your new boots and that, with some cobbling, they'll work for you! Thanks to COVID-19, that was a very long process.

The Easter roast really did look delicious. Was it a pork roast? You mentioned stuffing. Was it bread stuffing with onions, celery, sage, and such, or was it something else? I saw lovely green peas. Did you have potatoes or some other starch? And I saw scrumptious cupcakes for dessert. Wow, it looked like a proper feast!

I was alone for Easter so I didn't really have anything special. (Haha! That's why I'm salivating and asking so many questions about your dinner.)  I think it's a wonderful idea to set a festive table even if there are just 2 of you. Your table looked great. I loved the flowers and the bunny and eggs centerpiece. The china was also very pretty! I hope you had a happy celebration. 

I'll definitely send good vibes for you and that puzzle. ツ It sounds like a pretty one.

Take care of yourself.

Hey, Carol...did you ever get your new boots? If so, how did they fit?

The Easter roast looked yummy! ツ

Hi Angharad ....here's Easter dinner photos.

The horse says, "To heck with the ears, but the carrot's good!"

Happy Easter, Carol!

I'm glad you've ordered a different pair of boots, Carol. Hopefully after a trip to the cobbler, they'll fit well. Now we have to be rid of the coronavirus so there'll be events to which you can wear them!

I know NY is in super lockdown. I'm glad you got outdoors for some air and that trusty Mickey D's was open for getting grub. 

It sounds as though you're busying yourself with lots of worthwhile activities to avoid cabin fever. Good idea! At this point, I'm so used to isolation that it's sort of business as usual! Lol

Continue to take good care of yourself, Carol, and please update me on the next episode of the boot saga. ツ
