Indian summer


Indian summer! 79 degrees yesterday 70's again today. the end of the week will be rainy and colder. next couple of days will be good to be outside. just saved my last tomato seed for next year. the rest of the canning is on hold for colder weather. planning another wood cutting weekend, almost ready for winter. the wood stove feels very nice in the early mornings.

the stove we bought is one of the air tight ones, when it get so hot it burns the gasses again, we don't get any smell from it like we use to with the old ones. we had to do something natural gas here about breaks us in the winter. along with the other things that keep raising, we pay more for my supplemental insurance than we did for family insurance when I was working. the stove is extra work but now days I don't count my time.

Question


Lots are moving to Propane for heating here.
Supposed to be lots cheaper? I have no idea.

They are suppose to drop our Medicare prices????????
Maybe $2.00??

I did switch my auto insurance to a different agent and she dropped the rates I pay for the same company.. That made me happy.

Do you take AARp ins?
We used to an when we traveled we ask for the discounts an they would say this is the discount.. We didn't believe it. We quit .

one of the states deer committed suicide on the front of our car we got it back this morning. they did a wonderful job on it. looks like it did when we drove it home from the dealer. we take advantage of all the things we can, our prescriptions cost us less than part D so we don't choose to participate in it. my supplement is very high and will change it next year, we changed sherry's this year to more than 1/2 that she was paying. it' a constant battle to stay ahead of the wolf.

That's so true.........Government is there to make a killing on the seniors.

We didn't have to do all that before retiring...............
Check up an shots galore.. Now they say if you take hb medicines, it will lower the protections of the flu shot.
I think they try to kill us off an profit from our foolishness.

we have had our family DR. for 30 years he has done well by both of us, and when we need a specialist he gets us a good one so far we have out lived most of them. the weather guessers calling for rain tonight hope not, wanted to finish the yard tomorrow. will pick the rest of the tomatoes and pull the vines and put away the cages. leaves are all most down. picking them up to put on the garden. thundering but no rain as of yet oh oh raining now. well so much for that.

However like you say just one day closer to spring for us also.. Gosh it is almost turkey day......
Saw some guy at the store stocking up on loads of Christmas candy.. Guess his kids are getting some.........
I didn't realize I had not shopped for Christmas yet.......Probably just do money cause its needed here.
Taking grandkids to the doctors isn't cheap now..

Staying warm an resting is my biggest issue.

My brother had 2 stents put in his heart last week an was home in 2 days.. Very short of breath .

sorry to hear about your brother, but he should be on the mend. I hear you about the DR's we have an appointment next week we go twice a year for prescriptions and tests. checks my cholesterol and a PSA test. 2 years since prostrate surgery and have been cancer free. Christmas is right around the corner. we kind a do like my mom and mother-in-law use to do. for our kids sherry makes blankets or such and gets the grand and the great grand's some small gift. we are still doing that but it still cost a lot. the more we cut the higher every thing go's up. the city hires the high dollar administrator and other department heads to manage 7 people! we have more chiefs and no Indians, we don't even have enough workers to lean on shovels.
