  1. Wow, glad to hear it Netfoot. I once got a small crack in the windshield of my Subaru. It was small, I kept ignoring it, I just didn't want to deal with the repairs. Then we had some really hot weather and it got much worse. Turns out the repair was not a problem, they came to the house and the insurance covered it completely. They really don't want you driving around with a problem in the windshield. Who knew? Buddy didn't alert you to someone breaking into your yard? Ok, maybe you do need a puppy. Something small and yappy to wake up the big guy. It's been a bit complicated around here, my elderly mom fell and broke her arm, making caring for my elderly ( and slightly demented ) father much more of a chore. I've managed to talk them into some very part time home health aids while she recovers. I'm hoping they will keep the help even after she is out of her cast. I vacillate between wanting them to get a lot of help. and feeling like I should just go over there and do everything for them myself. They've both been frail for a while this isn't a surprise. But it's a lot.
  2. Glad to hear you are healing AND your Kidneys are ok, Netfoot. Every time this year I have to back track through your posts and make sure you really are in Barbados. Every single year. We sent money to the shelter that kept our dog originally. She was found on the streets with mange, and usually the shelter puts down dogs with communicable diseases, they can't afford the risk. But she was so sweet , and she had four puppies so they put them all in isolation ( together) for 6 weeks and got them healthy. So we make sure to send them some money and an update every year. The weight gain is so frustrating. I have a bad knee now. Losing weight would help my knee. What hurts it? Many forms of exercise. Arg. Really wish TAR was on twice a year. Could use some happy distraction these days.
  3. Netfoot, please let us know how you're doing since the latest hurricane if you can. ( edited to add, OK You're in Barbados, not the Bahamas, dialing down the worry several notches.) Hope you are well. My son has joined the High school Marching band and it's taking over our lives! I feel like we've joined a cult!
  4. Very glad you are doing ok Netfoot!. Sorry to hear of all your trials. Here in the cosmopolitan Bay Area you would have your choice of a dozen food delivery services and grocery delivery services. Someone on the islands should set this up! I need to figure these services out at some point because my parents will need them. My mom still drives, but she is 85. and I am happy to get things for them, but I know they don't always want to call me. I like your doctor checking in with you by chat, that's very clever. and kind. Lots of scratches to Buddy, here's hoping you stay warm and dry.
  5. Really glad to hear you are ok Netfoot. Our crazy summer of travel is winding down. glad to be home for more than 10 days!
  6. Just checking in on you NetFoot, How are you doing? I'm having a bit of a TAR summer. it was supposed to be one short trip and one long trip and then the short trip turned into a medium trip and another short trip was added in. That's a couple family visit trip and then vacation. Really looking forward to the vacation part! Hope all is well!
  7. Wow! What an ordeal! Glad to hear you are home again Netfoot! Nothing better than your own bed. Glad you friends and family are looking after you - despite waiting on the new baby. I hope buddy lets you take it easy for quite a while. Enjoy your music and books and get lots of rest!
  8. I didn’t like the live U turn at all, that’s part of why I stopped watching Survivor and have never watched Big Brother. I’m here for the travel and the racing please. I’m delighted to see the Reilly sisters go! They were messing up my show. Switzerland is so lovely. The tasks were great, very glad to see some self driving. I’m happy with whoever wins the race and I’m rooting for Colin and Christie.
  9. Fake Jan Brady, Yes the Travelocity editor should have caught that. I'm guessing you know that the actual prize is Travelocity Vouchers, and they can do what ever they want with them - Travel together or separately wherever they want.
  10. I enjoyed these episodes. I did wonder if Tyler and Korey had said anything about and being LGBT in Dubai is punishable by years in prison possibly death. Uganda is bad but Dubais 's bad too. I understand their sadness, it's awful to think of people like you being harassed, jailed and killed for who they love. I wonder if it got edited out...? I thought the tasks were interesting, - it's hard to make watching other people do VR or listen to head phones interesting, but they managed. It did seem very obvious that it was a non-elimination leg in the first episode. I really can't wait till the Reilly sisters leave. Colin and Christie are my solid favorites, here's hoping they take it all.
  11. Ah, Sorry you have to wait another 3 weeks. Are the surgeon and the anesthetist traveling together to work? ( around the island?) or are they off on vacation? Those are some limited medical resources you are working with, friend. Hope all goes well with the new baby. I think my husband and son just noticed that tomorrow is Mothers Day. I expect they'll be some quick shopping this afternoon, fortunately I've learned to be pretty clear about what I'd like. makes thing easier for everyone. I'm taking my mom to Stars on Ice tomorrow afternoon, we'll both be happy. have a good weekend!
  12. Wow, I've "known" you on line for a very long time Netfoot, , you are a completely different person without a beard. Interesting how people can change their looks if they want to. Buddy looks so innocent! My mom was supposed to get a knee replacement once. She did her pre op appointments the day before. They day of surgery I took her in and they postponed her because she had a 1/4 inch scab on her knee. It had obviously been there the day before and the nurse had missed it. Scabs are full of bacteria and it was right where the incision would have been. She never re scheduled. Fortunately her knee doesn't hurt, she just moves very slowly. Hoping you can have a good meal, a good nights rest and all goes well tomorrow!
  13. Oh dear, are we sure they haven't taken you into custody? OK Netfoot! Heal well! Sending you groovy good vibes from California!
  14. Very glad to see Corrinne and Eliza go, and glad it was absolutely their fault. That was a really uncomfortable elimination I didn't enjoy watching it. I hope the Reilly sisters go next. I so dislike their whining. Rachel's face just highlights all of Ellisa's cosmetic procedures. Their wardrobe choices are ridiculous. I hope Korey's finger is ok. They often don't show stuff like that unless it matters later. I wonder what's up with one of the Afganimals shoulders? He has a lot of tape or bandages on his shoulder. Distasteful tattoo perhaps? Brittany and Tyler were pretty funny as supportive ballast. Glad to see Colin and Christie win, that's where I expect them to be.
  15. Mikewho, I'm so sorry. You never know when you're going to be reminded of something like that. My son is currently learning how to drive and we live near an intersection where someone was hit - early morning sun in the eyes etc. but still, I find myself VERY focused on traffic safety these days. MamaT nice to hear from you! ( and MPstars update was great) Hi Lantern7 , it would be fun to meet up and watch, but I'm still on the other coast. Netfoot, I'll be thinking of you on Thursday. Will you be in the Hospital long? I swear almost everything is outpatient now, please let us know how you're doing. I still think of you ever damn time there's a hurricane, and then I reassure myself that no, he's not in those islands. Glad the cassava didn't get you. Do take good care. '
  16. Laos looks beautiful. I appreciate the alms giving and I'm guessing that TAR paid to rent the elephants all day so supported their rescue. Glad to see the show spreading some good in the world. ( before letting screaming racers loose, ya know the good, the bad, it evens out hopefully) I've never watch Rupert's seasons but he's just a bit much isn't he? Glad they get to go relax at sequesterville and have a good time together. ( and not be on my show!)
  17. Eliza's fine, Corinne is awful. looking forward to them being eliminated soon.
  18. Looking forward to seeing much more of them! ( and I'm sorry we don't have access to the old forum on them...)
  19. I'm delighted to have our show back! "Travel Safe!" and the theme song just make me so happy. Very glad at the current order, it would be fine if eliminations proceeded like this - well not really 'cause that would be boring, but in a similar fashion would be just fine. I'm happy to see old racers, though I'd be happier to see brand new normal contestants. Here's hoping TAR racers finish 1, 2 and 3.
  20. Glad to know you're well. Would be terrible to lose you to a root vegetable after all you've been through. It's Spring break, I took my son over to the bay and we got a great view of harbor seals and their brand new pups. So very sweet.
  21. Now wondering if you survived the cassava.... You've had quite a year Netfoot! Congratulations! and continued good wishes.
  22. WILNIL I think I remember MaddieG, I'm very sorry for your loss, It's so tough to lose someone at the holidays. Take good care. I'm relieved to see you back here NetFoot, I check regularly for a couple months. and then ya know, Holidays happened and everything gets busy. I was so hoping Foxy would turn up. I'm sorry. Love the sandman, we had a very dry warm December, I could have gone down to the beach and made something similar. Now the rains are finally back, which is good. So glad our show is back! Yea!
  23. Catfin, there is a handy website called Grown and Flown about parenting high school /college age kids that you might like. https://grownandflown.com/ I came here to post a link to this weird high fashion article about dressing Modestly from the New York Times. it's just interesting.. ( no mention of the Duggers) https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/02/t-magazine/modest-fashion-clothes.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&version=Moth-Visible&moduleDetail=inside-nyt-region-0&module=inside-nyt-region&region=inside-nyt-region&WT.nav=inside-nyt-region Y'all stay healthy now.
  24. Happy, Healthy thoughts to Arwen! Yea!! Catfin that's a great picture! About 75- 100 trick or treaters here. There are lots of kids in the neighborhood and in the apartment buildings near the neighborhood. Our neighborhood has several very decorated houses. Although as I was walking the dog this morning, I was noting to myself how two of the major decorators have yards that are completely abandoned looking the rest of the year. Dead lawns, inches of fallen leaves, weeds, fallen branches etc. I get that not everyone likes to garden, but a quarterly raking and weeding would be a huge improvement. Why do they suddenly want everyone looking at their decorations once ( or twice - Christmas) a year, when they clearly could care less about the yard the rest of the time? It's just weird.
  25. The winds sent the smoke elsewhere today, though it still smells weird outside. People are walking around with masks on. (90 miles south) The fires are still going, Calistoga was evacuated the other day, North winds are supposed to whip it all up again tonight. So far only 31 victims have been found, but something like 400 people are still missing. There is a cool wild animal attraction near Calistoga called Safari West, lots of stories in the media about the owner staying and saving all his animals while his home burned down. We stayed there one, it was beautiful. Daiquiris sound good, though I'm more of a Mai Tai girl. Budweiser is a beautiful dog, Netfoot. One day at a time...
