PostSubject: Morning everyone..It's a new week...11/08/2014   Wed Jul 05, 2017 5:30 am

First topic message reminder :

Well, he just said sorry. I keep forgetting that he is 8 hours ahead and
has probably been messing with the Chase stuff for some time before
messaging me. Nothing to be done now until the new card actually
arrives.
I don't think I will be taking these blood pressure pills much longer
they are giving me a headache, don't know if its dehydration or something
else but I have increased my fluid intake in hopes that that is all it is.
I go back in about 10 days so will take them until then.
I am sure she will give me another blood test so we can compare the two.

I need to call the Gastroenterologists office tomorrow to make an appointment.

Finally got all the leaves out of Black Beauty vents and rain channels.

Lorna called and said that Lucy (our neighbor who is now in a retirement
hotel) wants to have a get together like we did last year. Its all last minute
as usual. Luckily I am only down for chips and dip and soft drinks and water.
I also need to get a couple of bags of ice for the ice chest.
I don't even know whose garden we will be in yet!
Now I can go and get my breakfast! I don't do well handling this kind of stuff
as soon as I wake up. TTFN

Same here so far Vicky ,just got back from the shopper
store ,Spencer rolled home just as I was leaving at 730am ,I said
I wish you would tell me if your staying out but he said he did not
know had fallen to Sleep ,that's what he gets for getting up SO early
the only reason he said if he goes in later as he does not start now
till 8am ,he runs into the morning rush hour traffic ,when he leaves
now at 530am he is there in 15 mins but he told me twice he had
put his feet up in the office and taken a hours nap nono then
he does not stop now a days being the "Jack of ALL trades "

Ahhh best Matthew found out that early as you say don't want
THAT kind of girl not at THAT age either ,imagine how she will be
in 5 to 10 yrs time

Well have a good time where ever you end up Vicky ....
I will be going to see Gil later ,still not feeling 100% myself

Hope it was a "nice" dream you were having

Yes it is grey today.......a bit of drizzle but not much, hope Bond got there ok, well in time.

I was up later this morning........what a strange dream I was having, David had to wake me up to have my tablets.    confused2

Oh Matthew & Holly have split up......I had asked him to ask her if she could make our family meal and he said "Oh well er.....we've split up"  I said "Awww why?"   and Laura said "Oh Nanny she used to bully him, didn't like his friends, only wanted to go where she wanted to go"  honest she looked as though butter wouldn't melt Mad   I said "Oh well you don't want someone like that"   he doesn't seem upset.

Right off somewhere.

Geeez was that Bond I saw run  to the
Market Square ,with Mrs B jogging behind him

Up early this morning for a couple of reasons ,#1 Spencer must have
forgotten where he lives {I know a LOT of times he falls to sleep
over Carmen's but normally rolls home no later than 2am ,but maybe
because he does not have work today I saw he had NOT arrived at 4am}
I had a leg cramp so had got up to feed Buddy ,saw Spencer's
door open so knew he was still out ,so fed Tabitha as well catmilkbowl

Well once I am THAT awake that is IT Shocked  so made my
and HERE I AM confused2

Looks dry so far out side and its 65f

So guess Bond is off to the Art thingy in Atherstone in the square
could have left some thing to eat before rushing off like that with a piece
of in his hand
Anyway hope every ones OK today ,Vicky I guess Matthew does not want to
be away from his girlfriend now @

Yes I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Gil ,as I said he is still not "right"
but its a beginning ,guess I forgot it was his Brain that has to heal this time
not just his body like last time after having the blood transfusions confused2

Alright so I will be back later .......run run

Wow that's good news about Gil, in fact Wonderful News, obviously they're doing something right.         Gil's right you need to go and see the Doctor though. littleBlond

I think the 1st World War was a terrible waste of lives Margaret.....what sights those young men saw, what things they went through.

Laura seems more excited than Matthew, Matthew is sort of "It'll be interesting"  

Yes I bet you and Ruth had a great time Carole.   Smile

Where did Bond get to?     Wonder if the paintings are going to be some of his?

Hi ladies ,I feel better today as after seeing
Gil and meeting with the social director case worker
and therapist supervisor who said he was getting
what they call SIMS {stimulating electrical therapy}
to strengthen his legs ,I could see an improvement
over yesterday
When I got there he asked me what was wrong with my arm
as once more I have a itchy rash Been treating it with Cortizone 10
and Caladryl but he told me to go see my Dr
Up until today I do not think he even NOTICED me ,so like
Jackie said {and you Marge } its starting but will take TIME

Rain here and depending where you are its anywhere from 20 to 30 degrees
COOLER than it was yesterday when we here in Bridgeport hit 91f

So are Matthew and Laura excited ? I bet just to get away from
their home they MUST BE funnytvprog
Yes I hope they stay safe as well always a worry these days

Marge your lucky you do not have Madison ,Chelsea's cat who TRIES
to sleep on her CHEST when she can

Had a little upset tummy again today only had a English Muffin with
two small slices of cheese for breakfast ,came back from getting gas
and ate one {or tried to} of the Cornish pasties  I made and I was
not sure I was even going to MAKE it to see GIL waitingloo
So took out some fresh Salmon I had bought ,put it in some foil
with a knob of butter and two slices of a lemon

Trying to eat it now but not going to finish it Mad

So what happened to Bond looks like we will be making our own drinks
AGAIN Vicky Shocked

Sad about all those horses during WW1 Vicky crying
Back later if I am able

I often think that everyone's image of war in1914
was the charge of the light brigade as in the poem.
It must have sounded so dashing and brave.
So if they did not get called up, they volunteered
by the thousands. Including my Grandfather Hitchens
even though he was married with a child.
He was wounded and sent home.
Peter had a great uncle who was gassed and lived
a short life because of it.
In the second WW, my mothers younger brother could
have got a special waiver as he was the only male in the family
but he went anyway. Hespent his time in Burma driving supply
lorries and building landing strips,I guess he was in the Engineers.
He came home safe

Well, its going to get hotter again here over the weekend, up in the 80s
locally. There is a brisk little breeze at the moment so managed to sleep late
this morning. I woke up with Jagger sleepng on my feet,I thoughtonly dogs
did that.
The bedroom my computer is in is shaded by a mature mountain ash tree
in the back garden so does not get as much sunny as the other rooms.
By cracking the window open it stays comfortable most of the day.

So glad your grandchildren are going on the trip to Paris Vicky.
I am sure they will be full of stories when they come back.

Bond, always in the thick of things but having so much fun.

Carole, at this point, its one small step at a time. The brain is so
complicated but it does have a way of connecting bypasses between
nerves that if stimulated enough can bring back some of what
seems lost this time as its new damage.
Always have hope my love.

Well a lovely day.......waiting for Matthew & Laura to turn up after school.

I still think it was'n't right not to call your house number as well when they hadn't got you on your cell phone Carole.  

They're here .....later.

I'm back.

I'm with you Carole that doesn't mean it's posh Smile   anyway Bond the Indian Cricket team only eat around Edgbaston or Mosely when they're in the Warwickshire area.

Matthew & Laura are off to Paris with the school on Monday at Midnight......going through the tunnel.       Hope they have a good and safe time.

Oh Margaret I'm reading this book with the stories of the men in the first & second world war.   The book was sent to me years ago by my second cousin and one of the stories is his.    Anyway read the first one, the 1st World War......this guy talks about the horses and how he became friends with this riderless horse who didn't want to leave him until he was told to hit it on the rump and send it on it's way.....he wanted to change horses, this horse being fearless unlike his but couldn't, so he had to send it on it's way ......after the war he often talked about that horse and wondered what happened to it.   Sad

Morning Bond ,cooler today as they said
it would be and lots of damage along the coast
line from that storm, just showed a HUGE tree down
on a house that just yesterday the roofers had signed
off on
'Last night was the MOST sleep I have had in AGES
as Buddy did not get me up like he normally does around 1am
he did not go out until 415am ,I must have "crashed" around 8pm
as did not hear Blaine come home and only woke at 930pm briefly
saw he was home and had eaten and then I went back to bed ..

Anyway have to get going as this repair chap is supposed to
be here at 9am and I have to meet with the rehab Dr and social
worker at 115pm to discuss where he is and what goals for him etc

Morning Vicky .Morning Marge hope you had a good night

Bond not sure the "service" defines "posh" as I have had excellent
service at a road side food truck funnytvprog

Back later thanks for the

skies and rain on and off

Bond you could have scared off those players walking in

I still want to know whats the difference between a "regular"
Indian restaurant and a "posh" one confused2

Well Spencer home and showered so now MY turn

the storm that blew through but the service station was OK

Cake please.

I've nearly finished my Kindle (the ghost one Carole) it's brilliant and I'm keeping.....it wasn't scarey Carole, the ghost is lovely, she's looking for her daughter who died two hundred years before and the home she haunts has been bought by the ghosts many "greats" grand daughter and she finds these letters and the wedding ring which should have been given to the daughter, but wasn't. Anyway she's trying to find a way to get the Mum, Daughter and ring back together again. Anyway it's lovely.

Hi all, that was a lovely meal, yes I know you wouldn't won't curry Vicky But anyway it would of gone through the brown paper bag
The service and the restaurant is very posh it looked like half the Indian cricket team was in there, I think they thought the bottle greens was some sort of religious head gear
Anyway you still have cake
I'll do the drinks Tea coffee and L&Ls

So why didn't they call the house phone then if they couldn't get you on the cell phone?   confused2   That's not good Carole.  Mad

I remember Sylvia wanting to come home, she kept saying "I'm not stopping if they don't send me home soon I'm leaving"  that was when she was in the hospital.....and then when she went into the flaming home she kept saying  "I'm not stopping here" and I'd say "So when I come to visit you I might see you climbing out of the window and look up and say There's Sylvia's leg coming out of the window"   Awww he could have taken her home for a day when the sun was out to allow her to sit in her garden.....so sad.   talktohand  though she could be really nasty as well.    Oh boy could that woman be nasty.

talktohand  No I don't want any curry thank you......

I am back ....Vicky they DO have BOTH but when
I am home my cell goes on the charger and I would rather
they call the house phone so if I miss a call it will go into my
V/mail plus I can HEAR the house phone better than the cell

Marge you sound like Spencer saying he was going to buy his
dad a helmet and I knew you would understand how they just
FALL and do not try to stop them selves
Your also right about all the other bangs and bumps he has had
over the last couple of years ,as that is what it looks like ,its ALL
built up and in full AFFECT now ....
When I got there he was again eating with his Nurse Aid in the dining room
she said he did well at breakfast as well eating well over 50% as she secured
some salt for his scrambled eggs
Toook him back to his room and he wanted to go to the "bathroom"
so two aids took him in but he told them to leave him but she asked me
to go in with him as he is no where near safe to be alone sitting on the

But at least he went ...
But after putting him back into bed he started ,I told him I had to let
this guy in that the landlady had hired ,and he starts talking
about his scratch offs saying for fours days he had been asking ....
Now he has had these two cards in a plastic bag from when he came over
from the hospital he cannot see to do them Shocked but started YELLING at me
saying HOW HARD WAS IT TO TAKE THEM OUT headbanger
Yes its going to be a LONG road back this time I can see ,and in the mean time
its hitting me in my IBS section
Dr Chocskeys Liaison called me before I left to see him to see how I WAS DOING
which I thought was nice of her ,and she said that was what was happening to me
being upset ,stress affects different people in different ways

Next one of my old work mates told me on FB that Ruths husband Doug
had passed away ,he was also 68 ,I have not seen him in over 18mths
It said he suffered from COPD ?
I know he looked like a skeleton last time I saw him

So whats the difference between a Posh and normal Indian restaurant Bond

Enjoy your curry doubt Vicky will want any of THAT

Marge you lucky blighter THREE pieces of fish no less

Anyway I will be back possibly
they just issued a severe thunder storm warning for Bridgeport
its only feeling like 94f with a 71% dew point PHEW

A very happy birthday Bond,

Had 3 large pieces of fish on the dinner plate (its only 2 on the lunch menu)
fresh cold slaw and shoe string fries.
I had to bring the largest piece of fish home as I could not eat it all!

Where we went is the last open air Plaza shopping center in Torrance, its always been that way.
They have a nice assortment of stores and built a huge Cineplex at the back.
Its always busy but not over crowded until the week ends.
We were at full strength, 12 in all ,on their outside patio.

Brian will be going in for some kind of heart surgery soon (I think it may be for a stent or
valve replacement).His wife Shirley is getting over a broken bone in her leg.
Pam is recovering from walking pneumonia but the rest of us seemed to be in fairly good
shape for our age.
Two of our members got back from a trip to England two weeks ago but I think it was more
for visiting their kids than sight seeing.
One of them is leaving today for a trip to Maine to as she said "get over the trip to the UK!"
Its a log cabin by a lake owned by a friend of hers, Sounds brilliant to me.

Have finally solved my credit card problem so its on to the next fiasco!
Got the portable A/C working after cleaning all four filters and making sure the drip tray
was empty.
I also confirmed that Ian is aiming to come out in September some time if it can be arranged.
He is off with wifey for a long weekend driving round the Lake District, won't be back until
Tuesday. (Its their wedding anniversary )
Haven't heard from Melanie in a few days but guess everything is going the way it should
or I would have heard about it.
Its been dang hot where she is, at least 110f every day. They even put in a second evaporation
cooler(called a swamp cooler here ) Guess she and Jim are doing the same thing we are, taking it
really easy. Both my ceiling lights in the kitchen decided to go out together, one yesterday and one this
morning! The rest are working fine right now fingers crossed.
Got a few bits of sorting I can do without raising a sweat. I am way behind on my filing so going to pop
out to Staples to get some more large buff envelopes to empty the filing cabinet of last years receipts
and put this years in there. I found a whole lot of old ones in a box under the bed . Must have been
from 2015/16 when Peter was near the end.

Carole, it will take some time to get all that stuff out of his system between that and the concussion
he must have suffered (that will take longer to recover from) That's why the erratic behavior.
I should imagine he has been having concussive episodes on every fall, they are not always noticeable
but the effects can accumulate.

I sometimes wanted to put a football helmet on Peter with a face mask!
He kept falling face first, he could do nothing to save himself but he never got any broken bones. confused2

Like the look of the cake Bond.       I'll have a slice of that please.   Smile

Why not give BOTH home number and cell number so that if they can't get you on one number they'll try the other Carole.   confused2  

Anyway hope you find Gil more aware  Carole.

I'll push the bottle greens through your letter box Bond.....they've been washed.

I did NOT EAT ....anyway after a few trips to the waitingloo
it is passing over ...

The temps at 530am were ALREADY in the high 70's and the dew point
also so that = LOTS of HUMIDITY as Marge might tell you
Should break tomorrow though

Yes Vicky I was in SHOCK ,it seems Gil is going backwards
instead of forward after his last hospital stay ,and that was why
when I spoke to Dr Chokskys Liaison Jackie she had to remind me
that this time Gil had suffered a head trauma and it will take time
for the old Gilly to reemerge {hopefully}
I have to call this morning though as they had my cell number
down and kept calling THAT ,,so I told the administration girl
yesterday to change it to the home number ...
Well its a good job I got up at 930pm last night after falling fast
asleep at 7pm ,checked my cell which was on charge and there
was a call from the home
When I called it was one of the Aids who was asking about shaving Gil
and did I want them to shave OFF his beard ......good job she decided
NOT to when I never called back ,I said why was she calling my cell
as Jen had supposedly taken care of changing the main contact #
to our home # ,she said that was the only one she had headbanger
My point is WHAT if it had been an emergency Shocked
Anyway she said they had showered him and shaved him so hopefully
he will be feeling a little better today

I just have to pop to the Post Office before going to see him and whats
doing
Do not really want to be out after 3pm when they are predicting severe
weather because of the heat

So have a good one I will return run run run

Well I think I almost "lost it" today Sad
Saw Gil who was with the speech therapist
in the dining room eating mushy food as she is
concerned about his swallowing issues ,now yes
he had to have his meat cut up and I had to make SURE
he did not put too much in his mouth before shoving more in
but he never ate MUSH
She also said he did not know what YEAR this was affraid

When she had gone Gil started mumbling about the aid last night
how he had asked her to help him pee and she said no and some
thing about the bed ...
Said he told her she was worth $##@#@! and to piss off

Well it seems he had all the "facts" right only it was HIM who was yelling
at the aids and nurses saying he could do it himself ,but in the end peed
all over the bed ,they had asked me if he was continent and he was
but now they have a diaper on him

When I talked to him it was like he really was not listening
The Occupational therapist and Physiotherapist came in as I was leaving
so went back to answer some questions on how he was before this all
happened
He can not stand alone now and when she was telling him to move
his legs backwards it was like he could not remember HOW TO  
I came away close to Sad  and called the GP's office to ask when Gil
had had that swallow test as I know it was not THAT long ago
and I wanted to speak to Dr Chokskys Liaison Jackie but she was
not available ,but after listening to me Susan somehow got her on the phone
and she talked me down ,she said Gil is confused #1 first he was home then
hospital now another  different surrounding and the blood has to be
absorbed back into his body and its going to take time and has made
him like I see him now as THIS is REALLY not Gil
She said people have to understand he had a brain trauma and it will
all take time to right itself but that in his case this Corticobasil is not
helping either
I am so glad she talked with me for about 15mins as I was close
to  my eyes out
Guess its catching up on me

Anyway nice shoes Vicky ,have fun Marge LOVE fish  n cheese
its trying to find a good one though

And see you when you come home Bond

I will be fine ,stiff  upper lip and all that ROT santa

Feeling frustrated from yesterday, trying to log in on the
Chase website to tell them I got my new card but it
would not accept my password and code. Then I tried to call
the I-800 number on the back of the card and as usual
got the recorded prompts which did not include activating
my card, so this morning I am going to Chase bank and let
a live person sort it out.
I am beginning to feel like its woman vs the machines!

Not much going on here as this kind of heat exhausts me.
I talked to Lorna and she said the same , its better to take it easy
in this hot and humid weather than risk any kind of heat stroke.
I am still drinking as much fluid as I can and eating lightly.

See Murray is out of Wimbledon, knew he was not in great shape
going in. Still keeping an eye on Chris Froome in Tour de France.
He still has the yellow jersey at this point but there is a long way
to go yet and anything could happen .

The sun on my little weather station just went from partly cloudy
to full sunny
Its my group dinner tonight and we are going to a new place hoping
for decent fish and chips.
I keep telling them that Rubies on the Redondo Beach pier is the place for
the best F&C around, very light batter, fresh cold water white fish and
fries that you can get a refill on. Only snag is they don't have a group table.
Its a 40sstyle diner with red pintucked booths and a chrome, white and red
design. It has an overhead rail with various fish floating along while you eat!
Their patio overlooks the paddling Lagoon and beyond that, the ocean.
Its also a cruise stop for classic cars one night a month.
Think American Graffiti and Mel's Diner without the car hops.
AND 50s style Rock & Rock music!

Carole, I hope that Gill is more alert today or tomorrow, it takes time for
that stuff to get out of his system.
Better go and get dressed and start my day here TTFN

Just off out to look after the little kids as the big kids are going to the school
So back later it's still nice out, just sat out with a coffee and my book

Yes banana ones......takes me back to my childhood. Smile

Just been watching that programme about the young painter.....14 years old I was saying "Oh love that, like that one" but the prices £10,000 right up to £55,000 no wonder he's got a couple of Million in the bank. But he was good.......wonder if Susan MIL saw it?

David's asking me what I want for my birthday......was going to say "Money" and then it would go into my bag collection BUT I'm now thinking Antique confused2

Sultana scones & sweet shrimps  oh how you spoil us.

It was food shopper  shopping this morning for us.

Lovely out there.......no they aren't marzipan Carole, the sweet shrimps......trying to think what they are now......BOND?   I love them though.

Oh Sylvia's place was like that Carole.....receptionist had to let you in.....then after signing the book  it was another code to get through the door to get to the Lifts.....a different code to get into the lift then coming down it was another code for the lift and another code to get through the door to reception again, sign the book to leave and then the receptionist put a different code to let us out ....and weekend was a nightmare, if the receptionist had left you had to phone this number for someone to come and let us out and at times the telephone  wasn't answered so you had to either wait for a member of staff coming in to let you out OR go and hunt for someone to come and let us out, of course having to remember the codes to get through various doors.   A nightmare.    Fort Knox would be easier.  But yes Carole that was because of Dementia patients also.  

Ok thanks for the mug

Hi Bond I'm  back from the Pharmacy and did a little shopper
as making a Mozzarella Meatloaf for tonight ....
waiting for it to be time to go see Gil and the administration lady
at 1130am so popped the meatloaf  in the oven and it will almost
be done by the time I leave ....

Bond is that those marzipan type candies ? I can TASTE them

Ok so where is twinkle toes today ,she's not meeting up with Bev is she
chattable  confused2
Only 730am Marge's side of the  so she should still be Sleep
yet

Even though its nice seeing that BLAZING sunny  I cannot handle
the humidity found I had SWEAT on my BROW lol!
So glad to get in the house ....I hope Gil's room is cooler today as
yesterday it was NOT even though his nurse turned up the A/C
I could not feel much difference before I left ...

Did I tell you you cannot get into the elevator where he is with out punching
in a special code ,its OK going Up but with out the code your STUCK on the
2nd floor to come down Shocked  I realize that must be because they also
have patients there with Dementia and Alzheimer's and they do not want
them taking off on their own Rolling Eyes

Anyway I shall be back later save me my L & L's please Bond gonna NEED it
 OH VICTORIA where ART THOU

Morning Marge

run run run

Morning Bond yes as I said on FB I got to watch Sting Ray
with the lads when they were little funnytvprog
Bit foggy here in spots especially near the water ...
Going to be another VERY HOT and STICKY day no rain this
morning but a chance of "pop up" thunder showers this afternoon
as the heat increases

Called around 6pm last night to see if Gil was OK the nurse said he
was being fed by the care nurse ,and that she had given him his
medication herself and they would be settling him down for the night
and that he was OK
The Therapist would be seeing him today but she said not to worry about
not taking his clothes up until I go see the Administration girl at 1130am
as he would not start therapy until tomorrow at least

Buddy let me Sleep pretty good until 215am today before I let him out
then he was back in again at 4am when I had to go to the loo....

Those sultana scones look inviting

Anyway Spencer has gone and Blaine's in the shower

Oh had a message from the Landlady last night ,telling me
she had gotten the drain fixed next door ,and that the Plumber said there
was a LOT OF GREASE down there ,and not to put grease down the sink washingup
I take exception to THAT as I do not put any grease down the drain it goes
into the garbage and I will tell her so when I see her

She also said some guy would be around to look at the gutters and Thursday or Friday
she would get hold of me so they could come look at the wall in Blaine's room
and look at where I told her the chimney must have a leak as there is a small
water stain and crack where the stack goes up in my kitchen on the ceiling as the
fireplace is down on the first floor in Spencer's room but its never used these days
I last used it back in the '80's when I first lived here

Anyway I shall return at some point so leave the door ajar run run

Well hello ladies and gent
Gil arrived at the rehab at 1215pm
I asked the Ambulance man if they had taken
the scenic route funnytvprog
I had been sitting in the lobby for over 1/2 an hour
Anyway its a 134 roomed place Gil is on the 2nd floor
has a two bed room not like the Jewish Center where
he had a private room ,the man who was in the room
was dozing and by the looks of him will not be doing a
lot of talking .
Gil has a TV but I had to ask the nurse who checked him
in to turn the other mans TV down as you could not hear
yourself talk
I do not think he is overly happy but he has to remember
like before the harder he works to get back to where he was
the faster he comes home
I know Marge I told his nurse at the hospital that I HOPED
it all happened THERE ,which it did ,and I warned the rehab
about making sure he goes at LEAST every other day
They weighed him with a harness contraption that I have never
seen before ,the other place had a chair he sat in ,anyway it
said he was 152 lbs in that case he has once again LOST about 20lb
he did last time he was in the hospital being as he was on a drip
this is actually the weight he was when we met again but over
the last few years he has gained a few pound especially now he is
now not as mobile

It feels like a sticky warm bath outside was glad to get home as
I have been feeling drained of late with out the added help

Made some Spanish rice before I left so only had to cook the pork chops
I had seasoning in the fridge for the boys ,I am having a small plate
as these pills are cutting my appetite.....

We had accidents this morning Marge on I-95 tractor trailers and all due
I am sure to the slick conditions the way the  was coming down
in SHEETS

Tracie said she could not  yesterday and Sunday due to the thunder
storms in Florida so was flying to day which is her normal day off

Glad you can all see my Blue Balloon Flower

I see a plumber is next door now at 3pm so she must have gotten SOMEONE
to come out ....She is retired now and that was the first thing out her mouth
when I mentioned something that needed doing talktohand oh I am on a pension
now so have to watch my spending ,WHAT does she do with our rents
and yes next door gets EVERYTHING paid for electric heat ,the only reason we do not
is Spencer would get a call from Migdalia when they lived together that there was
no lights or no heat so he called and took the utilities over ,so all she pays for
us is the water

Not Jewish Marge ITALIAN ,,,,looks like she just got off the boat  small squat
stringy hair long skirts etc and she has NEVER been MARRIED ,she was a mamma's
girl ,but mommy died not many years after she bought this house as when she came
out to say she was the new owner mommy Staltaro was checking EVERYTHING out
And  yes Angie probably has more $$ than I care to think about ,we were told
years ago she owns MORE than this house ,but she has a bad reputation
for not paying her bills so hops from one repairman to the next
THAT is why she cannot find anyone to clean or do repairs here headbanger

Anyway better get going catch you all tomorrow
