    Joe, How cute, a lily pad! Good she did well, and that she likes theater work. 🙂 I want to hear a review of Evita, if you will? Tweety, how cool, a production about Billie Holliday! I look forward to hearing about it! Didn't end up going...

    I have never journaled, nor do I often dream. If I DO dream, I rarely remember the dreams. But I do music. 🙂 🙂 😄

    Hello to all! No one at work has approached me to ask what I want, but I know they will be planning something. My colleague (who will be retiring a few months after me), when I mentioned "I wish I could just quietly leave. Here one day, gone t...

    Hello, hello all! We arrived home today around 2pm, after a 5-hr drive from Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We had a great time: good bands, good jamming, good visiting, great food, mostly good weather. Two days were VERY cold and windy! So no jamming...

    Hello all! We arrived to camp around 7 last night, after a late lunch stop to meet with our bassist and visit. There were about 50 RVs in a large gravel parking lot, and though it was 50 degrees there were three jams going on, ppl gathered aro...

    Hello all! Tweety, hope you are adequately staffed today, and you don't have to stay OT. I have heard we are having a staffing crunch as well (not just nurses) at our facility. I guess I am contributing to it, choosing to retire now. I do hav...

    How cool that you volunteer at a wildlife rehab! Do they utilize your nursing skills or have you doing other tasks? I have a friend who does raptor rehab, and we have visited a couple of times (been hissed at by owl babies ❤️ ). I have heard that ...

    Hello all! Busy day at work. I was assigned to the Stress Lab but as no one was doing Case Management, I ended up putting out several fires there. Our patients in the Stress Lab did well, so that's good! I left a few tasks for my office partn...

    Tweety, (and I'm sure you know this!) Jade is so precious! Does she ever play with or cuddle with your dogs? Does she use the pee pad at her own home, or go outside for "business?" Joe, what did you make in the crockpot? Something to go with ...

    Good morning! Though there are signs requesting ALL persons in the grocery store wear masks, I still see a percentage of ppl who go without. I'm in your same boat, Joe and Tweety, but possibly more reluctant to do without a mask. When cases drop I...
