Morning Mates, I am up at the crack of dawn (literally, there is a pink horizon over the snow!) We are headed in to the windshield replacement place with James' car, and then out for breakfast...

Twenty-nine years ago today I was giving birth to my beautiful daughter Jessica. I can't believe how the time has flown!

Good Morning Donna and others to follow.

I also have a daughter turned 29 this month. And I am taking my Jeep to the shop because a warning light came on regarding ABS, so I don't want to have brake problems.

Evrything else is fine down here and the weather continues quitw warm.

Have a nice day everyone.

Good morning everyone.

It's been a fun couple of days around here. I'm still fighting this pneumonia but it is getting better. The bad part was that on Monday morning I had a grand mal seizure. Not fun. I have the partial seizures and I've learned to live with them but the full blown ones aren't fun and I have little memory of most of Monday.

The neurologist believes that the seizure was brought on because of the illness and isn't too worried about a recurrence. He has increased my seizure meds and I feel like a gorked zombie. He does feel that if I go seizure free for the next seven days then I will be able to go on the cruise but I will have to make sure I get plenty of rest. I will stay on the higher dosage of meds for the next three weeks. Gee: I wonder if I'll remember the cruise.

Happy Birthday to Jessica: I hope that she is having a wonderful 29th.

Manuel: The ABS problem is probably a fuse or sensor. It's good to get it taken care of as soon as you can. I can never understand people who drive around with the "Check Engine", or other warning light on, for miles and miles and then wonder why their car goes to heck.

Nothing on the agenda for today. I'm still "confined to quarters" so there isn't too much I can get up to.

I wish everyone a great day.

Take care,
Mike

Hi all, a sunny, mid 40's day in NW Ohio for us! Not much else happening.

RD - happy birthday to your beautiful daughter! I also have a 29 year old DD - the pediatrician in our family.

Manuel - hope all is okay with the car or, at least, a cheap fix

Mike - please listen to Betty and the doctor so you can make the cruise - and GET BETTER!

My puppy (okay, 2 1/2 year old puppy!!) is crawling around my legs at the desk; she has been very nervous since last night, not sure what shook up her little world!

Hope all have a good day!

Mike,OMG! PLEASE take care of yourself. Those seizures, any seizure, is NOT fun to watch, either. Brings back terrible memories.

Keith didn't finish the post box frame yesterday, and plans to do that this morning. Best get him some breakfast first.

You were right! It was a sensor, and I allways take warning lights seriously.

Good afternoon
A very mild day here with temps in the 40's and it's going to last into the weekend, hard to believe it's January.
Mike... Sending well wishes your way
Donna... Your daughter is beautiful, May she have a wonderful birthday!
