    Good morning everyone! A rainy somewhat chilly day here in Fresno...high of 63 today.

    I’m slowly dipping my toe back into forum waters...maybe. :)

    When you’re on a forum ..they are addicting, but when you’ve been away for awhile it’s hard to get back in the groove....at least for me.

    I’m doing better physically and mentally but not there yet.

    Still miss my Pickles every day but at least I don’t cry.

    Even made the drive to my daughter’s for Thanksgiving without crying...that was the big test.

    Ive done that 3 hr drive for 11 years with my dog next to me...this was the first time he wasn’t there. :(

    Wasn’t easy...but I did it.

    Good Morning all!

    Wore my black felt cowboy hat out for a Mexican dinner last night and...……..felt really, really nice! My wife said, "you look terrific with it on". I told her, "well, this is just one reason why we moved back here." IOW, not totally uncommon, like it was in Jacksonville, FL, to see a guy wearing a cowboy hat here.

    If we go to Cowboy Church this evening, my wife will wear hers as well. Just like someone in this forum said "perhaps we will start a "wearing a cowboy hat" trend here." LOL, but perhaps.

    @Crissy Cross So proud of you for your courage. I know the trip was in no means easy. Try to remember, Pickles still remains with you, in your heart and memories.

    Good morning to all my fellow Boomers. Sunday morning in Sydney. Another day of smoke haze. All last week I woke to strong smoke smell and haze.. in addition my pool and courtyard copped tons of embers and ashes.

    Our wildfire problem is now almost catastrophic.. several smallish blazes have merged into a mega blaze that will threaten outer Sydney when temps rise to 40C this week. The Wollomi Pine one of the world's oldest trees situated in one of our national parks..is also under threat.

    Good morning everyone! Rainy day again.

    Going to a church my new friend Val has invited me to....I’m ex Catholic but was looking for a church here for many reasons....most of them wrong.

    The social aspect mainly...then the donuts, lol. J/K.

    But I’m really looking for something after my horrid scary summer.

    After church...my friend has invited me to her house for lunch.

    At least I’m meeting some awesome people!

    Good Morning to you all. I have an appt. this morning with periodontal doctor for a cleaning. I always dread this because seems there is always a new problem.
    Wednesday have appointment with heart doctor. I truly hope to get some answers so I will not have to find me a new doctor.
    I continue to fight fatigue and pain but have do have some Good days. I feel like an invalid and a burden at times. However I keep reminding myself I have it much better than most and to shut up and carry on;).
    Ironically my appt Wednesday marks two years since my CHF and COPD diagnosis. Plus two years smoke free:)
    My husband bless his heart had been smoke free about a month now and very proud of his efforts.
    Hope you all have a good day and I read your stuff even if I don't post :cool:

    Good morning on this rainy day. Well, I have an appointment with my pulmonologist this afternoon. The nodes on my lungs have become a problem as I am experiencing a lot of chest pain and also in my back. Since I will turn 87 in one month, I have instructed my son not to commit me to any drastic treatment measures. I was a heavy smoker for an extremely long time and it isn't surprising that this is a result. What is surprising is, it took so long to rear its ugly head. So, all I ask is that I am kept as comfortable as possible and let nature take its course. Meanwhile, I will continue to just be me take me or leave me.

    @Gloria Mitchell I sincerely hope you find what you're needing from your doctor or if necessary a new doctor, must be very hard and frustrating waiting. Very proud to hear of the smoke free decision on your part and your husband's, i know how hard it is. Be strong, stay strong. Good luck with all this.

    Good morning everyone! Cold today, high of 57 and very dense fog this morning...thankfully Curves is less than a quarter mile from my house.

    I also was a smoker but quit 11 years ago but still my main worries are copd, emphysema and lung cancer.

    My mom who was also a smoker died from respiratory complications but basically emphysema:(
    She was 83.
