Let me know if the interloper causes anymore trouble. I'll do a trouble check later.

Good evening all. Looks like we had some interloper here. Thanks Floyd, for cleaning it up.
Well thanks for the info on Quincy Romeena. I went to channel 82 and sure enough, I see it is on here weekday afternoons at 1:00. I see they air Emergency also. I haven't seen Nurse Dixie in a long time. :)
Beautiful day here today. Temps in the mid 60's, sunny. We need a lot of days like this one to bring that melting snow down nice and easy. Right now all of our rivers are running at peak as they are making room for the higher elevation melt to begin. The next month could be interesting.
Romeena, I bought some Simply Grapefruit juice this morning at the store and drank a glass. I have noticed today my blood pressure has been down quite a bit from where it has been. Would it work that fast? If so, that is awesome.
Well spent much of the day in the yard. Time for a shower and then settle down with a DVD. I wont tell you what I'm watching because y'all would tease me.
Prayers for your good health MDC. And for you also Boo.
Where is John Masters? Probably can't get off that Sears machine. lol

Well I am finally home from the hospital. The regular hospital I was in in the beginning had no internet access but the rehab hospital that I got transferred to did have internet in the lounge on each ward. But now I am posting from home.
Romeena, regarding your request, check out your postings from 21 May 2016 and 25 May 2016 for the duck info from last year.

PH, you're the CATS...good to have you back.
Aw, Asa, tell us what you are watching. I'll tell something embarrassing if you tell something embarrassing. ;) Are you watching Flipper..or maybe The Partridge Family?:)
Been working the last few days and yesterday evening was a real booger. Tonight was much better but still getting so many meds ready for so many boys is a real pain sometimes. I still love my job, though. I am just hoping and praying that the air conditioning doesn't go out this summer...AGAIN.
Ro, I can't remember what you did about the ducklings last year, but seems that they ran and got under a bush after they were hatched. What are you going to do with the pool..are you thinking if they get into that, you will be able to get them out and put them in a carrier and move them to safety?
Well, Bruce and Sean have been working around here getting the ground leveled and the tree trim. Monday operation sprinkler system begins!... FINALLY. After that, the Bermuda seeds go in the ground and little grass shoots should start coming up in no time. I cant wait.
Well, I am pretty worn out. I already had my shower so now I will either watch a little TV or read. I am in the middle of a Fanny Flagg book right now and it's pretty good. I like her books. Anyone else read her books? She wrote the book, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Inn"..it was the book on which the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was written.

Thank you for all the prayers folks. It is just so strange how fast things started changing for me,
but I know that your prayers will be answered.
Cecile and I went out together to a family gathering, so that was nice, but I had to elevate my legs as soon as we got home.
This morning I watched 3 episodes of the Match Game from 1975 on a channel I get called Buzzr, featuring old game shows! Good ol' PH told me about it a while back.
PH--I am so glad you are back home. Always nice to get back into ones own bed. Glad your rehab is moving along.
GOOD SABBATH to all!

Hey GF, I see that your Indians and my D-Backs have similar records right now, about 13 wins, 7 losses.
It is the best start in the D-Backs brief history. Our firstirst season was 1998.
Tuesday I go in for an echocardiogram. I get them periodically, so no problem there. They just want to see what's up right now.
I also made an appt with a kidney doc because kidney issue symptoms are very similar to the ones caused
by a weakening heart. I just want to be proactive in this thing.
Thank you for your continued prayers. I do indeed love Jesus, for greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world! can I get an Amen? :)

I removed 2 more messages today. They weren't "bad" but were posted by the same person that posted the removed Msg 107366. I'm changing some of the filters to try and stop 'em but it may be hard to do. We'll get them eventually. I'm holding on to Richmond.

Well, sure has been quiet on the porch lately, except for an interloper.
Not much to talk about here. The guy who was supposed to come for the sprinkler system hasn't showed up for two days so I guess we will be getting someone else. Disappointing...been waiting too long already.
I watched Man in a Hurry last night so am trying to relax and not get too stressed.
Hope you all are ok.

Some may find it interesting, when I had my root canal, the endodontist said a prayer, out loud, just before he began working on me, asking for help to do his best and that I get through it okay. A definite first for me.

Good afternoon, porch. G-F, I just hope that wasn't a pig barn. As much as I love pork, I have to say, there's not much that's any worse than a pig barn. A cow barn is rank but tolerable, and a horse barn doesn't bother me at all, but pigs? Phew!
Well, as I said, the book is at the publisher, and now the fun begins, I guess. They're going over it with a fine-tooth comb to be sure no copyright laws are being infringed. I sent in all waivers and consents I thought would be needed, but they're finding things I either overlooked or didn't know would require a consent. Picky, picky, picky! It's getting done, though.
It's cold here today, relatively speaking. It's been in the low 60s all day, and quite windy. Really chilly without a jacket. Eloise and a friend and I went to our favorite Thai restaurant after English classes today, and I thought I would freeze or blow away, or both, before I got back to my car. I guess you can't freeze at 60°, and the likelihood of me "blowing away" in anything smaller than a tornado, is pretty small, but it sure felt like it.
Well, that's about all I know. You all be good, now. --Romeena

Hiya Tom. Good to see you buddy.
Thanks Floyd. Everything is ok in Mayberry!
MDC, How did the echo go? I hope they found everything working well.
Good luck on the publishing phase Romeena. I look forward to the next James Herriot. :)
Boo, better call the man. I told you not to go with that fly by night sprinkler guy. lol
That is a neat story Billy. I like it.
Well off to hit the shower and veg for a spell.

But Asa, Clara knew this man who does sprinkler systems at a bargain! ;)
Still no sprinkler man today. Bruce will be finding someone else tomorrow. I sure wish people would be upfront.
Well Ro, it got to 100 degrees here today so enjoy the cold. We melted here.

Wow Floyd, that is BIG! Big, BIG! Very cool to be
a part of iMayberry history. Thanks for keeping the porch clean, like Wyatt Earp cleaning up Tombstone!
Hey to TOM, hope all is well these days. You have had
some rough ones in the recent past.
ASA--the echo itself went fine. I usually get one once a year, but for the doc to order this special one is a bit concerning. He has to review it, and will then let me know what's up.
I see a nephologist next week to see if the swelling may be related to kidney problems.
ALL- On PBS tonight they had a neat program on how several countries came up with a big "arch" dome to cover up the entire Chernobyl building.
Talk about an ingenious, but very complicated plan. here is a short video showing it. It was built next to the plant, and then "slid" over the plant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7aMcKinrWY
BOO-my wife and I ate at What-A-Burger tonight. Still the best burger around!! :)
RO--its been in the mid-90s here for two weeks now, so count your blessing with that 60! ha

Thanks to Frank for all the work he did for Mayberry on the web. We've tried
to make this just like Frank's Porch. This is also a tribute to Ollie's
"Trivialities" site which was another homage to Frank's porch but is no longer
