Indian summer

This is what we used to call Indian summer. The weather is into November but the temperatures are more like spring. I'm talking high 50's to middle 60's and that's really good. The warm weather keeps our heat bills from going wild before it really gets cold. Nobody can survive 5 months of extreme heating bills and especially us senior citizens on Social security. Last year I just about went under when my bill tripled and the way they talk it's going to happen again. I'd like to know what happened to those abundent supplies they said they had. As soon as cold weather gets here and we don't have but 2 choices, ( Stay warm or freeze ) the cost of gas goes up. The oil companies are finally taking less profits and still making more than they need. I wonder if the Gas & light companies took less profits wound they go bankrupt. I sure wish they would try it once.

Stay alert tomorrow.

Tomorrow we will once again be invaded by all kinds of creatures walking the streets begging.If you give them a treat they will go away and leave you unharmed. It's anybodys guess what would happen if they aren't treated right. Some of them I think could be handled but there are some that are so scary I fear for the people that chase them away. Just keep your eyes open and you will see just how many there are out there so just be careful and watch the shadows for surprises.

Prevention First

I went in and got my flu shop today and I feel much better now. I've gotten one for the last 6 years and boy I'm glad I did. I have respiretory desease and flu or even a bad cold would really take it's toll on me. My doctor tells me I should also have a pneumonia shot too.With only 25% of my lung capacity you can't take many chances. I just say whatever you say I don't mind the needles. I haven't had a cold or flu for 6 years so I'm a believer in flu shots especially for senior citizens.

It's Springtime Again

Holy Mackeral there it feels like spring again. The temps got into the low 50's and should see high 50's or low 60's tomorrow. I'm going to try to get the rest of the yard work done while it's warm. It looks like 50's all week for right now but this is Iowa and things change really easy. Right now we will take anything that looks like warm weather that we can get. It won't be long and we won't have a choice it will be all cold. Every year I get more tired of cold weather but can't afford to move to a warmer climate.

Holiday Shopping Promotions

I just can't believe how late in the year it is. Thanksgiving coming up and Christmas is right around the corner. The biggest shopping day of the year is the day after Thanksgiving or what they call Black Friday. It seems like every store that is in business has specials just for the early shoppers. You see hundreds and thousands of people running all over The malls in your town. That says nothing for the thousands that head for the mega malls hundreds of miles from home. I used to do that but with my mobility getting worse I can't get around like I used to. The big thing is I found a better way to shop like at Ace Hardware or maybe, circuit, they're all there right at your fingertips. Check out this website black friday to start getting ideas of what you want and where to get it. You can stay in the comfort of your own home and still get your shopping done. Hey, by shopping from home you even save the money you would have spent on gas even though it's getting cheaper too. When you think about it saving money is the main part of early shopping and the more you save the more you can spend on gifts you want for your loved ones. If you're like me you like shopping when the stores are quiet . This time of year I'm an easy chair shopper avoiding the crowds and still getting the real great discounts on the things you really want.

Saving Energy

When I say Energy I mean my energy that I would have used raking leaves. Yesterday the wind came through here and blew the leaves in my yard into the next county. What a day with wind at 35 MPH and gusts up to 60 MPH. Everything that wasn't nailed down wound up in the neighbors yard. There's still a lot of work outside to do with picking up branches that came off the trees. It has to be cleaned up or the snow blower will have some problems getting through.

Politics, Politics

Think about running for political office like president. Your followers give you millions of dollars to sponser your political desires. Stay at the best hotels and motels and eat food prepared by the great chefs. Drinking the finest booze that money can buy. Why not it's not coming out of your pocket so do it. I think about how many people are out in this country who can't even pay their bills to survive. What's wrong with this picture? It just don't look right to me like Red Skelton used to say, It Just don't look right to me. I must say I have wonder who all these big investers are and are they backing or buying a presidential candidate. Yup, I just can't help but wonder.

What's New With you?

Well I had a checkup and the doctor thinks I'm carrying to much fluid around. I admit I could lose at least 4 inches around the waist but I have some thick heavy shoulders and chest that carries a lot of my 188 pounds. I don't feel fat just bigger than I should be and Doc thinks fluid is the answer. I've been taking a fluid pill for a year or so to avoid congestive heart failure. He seems to think that it also has a bearing on my breathing problems. I get up and take my pill and can't really plan much until the effects of the pill start to wear off. Now I have to take 2 of them boy what a fun time that is. Whatever it's better than congestive heart failure so I'll keep doing it until he says stop.

It's Getting Closer

Would you believe it's only a few weeks until we elect a new president. I'll be so happy to get it over with and get all the lies off the TV set. I made up my mind months ago then changed it a month later and now with the debates I'm thinking I should think again. I learned a lot in the debates that has changed my mind again. Regardless of how I or anyone else votes the biggest thing is it will be over and we can gripe about the government for another 4 years. Just don't forget to vote no matter who it's for because if you don't vote then you can't gripe later.

Life Goes On

My friend returned from Texas and I don't have to get up early to go take care of her dogs. There's a good possibility I'll go with her next time but we'll have to see about that yet. The weather here has been cold with lows in the 30's and highs in the 50's. Texas was in the 70's and 80's so what would you do? I would love to go down to Texas again but I would prefer all winter not just a week. It would really be fun though.

Maritime Lawer

The maritime industry needs legal representation and Mark & Associates PC is the legal association to deal with it. They are a personal injury law firm that represents seamen injured at sea. Wether they work on ocean liners, oil rigs, or other ships in the united states they need workman compensation laws to protect them. This website maritime lawyer can provide you with more detailed information. Anyone that's been injured on the job knows how important workmans compensation insurance can be to a family to just get by. Why should seamen have to fight for benefits for those on the job injuries. Obama is is backed by the seafarers union because he pledges to suppore the maritime insurance plans.

Job Hunting

You know a person doesn't realize how hard it is to find a job until you need one. It's even harder to find a job when you're disabled and just can't do everything anymore. Oh I forgot to say retired from a life of hard work and over 70 doesn't help. I will say that there are places that will consider senior citizens today that wouldn't have 20 years ago. They have learned that older people do good work even if it takes a little longer and they are never late for work. I'm just looking at want ads for work to see if there's anything out there I can still do. I'll have to wait and see I guess.

Falls Here For Sure

The leaves were starting to turn colors when we got a little rain. Yesterday wind cleaned a lot of leaves from the trees. Today it rained and with it came some very chilly weather. I put on a sweatshirt and I was still cold outside. Inside I've turned my furnace on to keep the chill out of my bones. Funny how when you get older the cold feels a lot sharper than it did 25 years ago. It won't be long now and we'll be able to see the cold because it will be white.

Progress Happens To Me

Yesterday my friend and I stopped at Wal-mart and checked into the deals on AT&T cell phones. Since our contract had expired we both were up for a free phone. I had dropped mind at least 6b times on cement and it made noises when you were calling. My friend had a really old nokia that needed to be replaced. They gave both of us a Motorola Razor absolutely free. We did have to pay $18.75 each for activation fees. But it was worth the effort to get the phones we got.

That's My Car.

The other day I was downtown and saw a guy drive by in my car. Now I don't really mean it was mine but it was a car I wanted when I was young. I talking a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, which to thios day I believe to be the most classic of the American sport cars. Everyone loves the "55" or "56" t-bird but my personal preference was the "57" of everything Ford. Body style, Fins, Skirts, and Continental Kits were everything a young guy could ever even dream of. Well maybe not every guy but this one sure was in love with them. I had a 1957 Fairlane many years ago and how I wish I still had it.

James Brown

As the great James Brown would have said, "Wow, I feel good". I was able to catch 2 blog opportunities to write and have something to do besides just sitting here looking at the computer. Besides it will stimulate my bankroll and help me meet my bills on time. It's always to have something to do instead of sitting and slowly turning into a vegetable. The little bit of cash really helps to when you run out of bread and milk. Yup. everybody wins and there aren't any losers.

Brrrr What Happened?

I really don't mind the temps getting down to 50 at night because that's good sleeping weather. I have to say that 38 or 39 is just a little to chilly for me and it reminds me colder weather is coming. I'm really hoping that this winter will be more like the last 5 before last year ruined it all with all that below zero and snow. The fact that it started with 3 inches of ice fefore the snow didn't help at all. I had ice in my driveway until spring. I don't want to have to go through that again right away. Since I can't afford to move south I guess I'll just pray for a mild winter and take what I get.
