No one has anything to say for an MMP?


Actually, I posted the conversation. :wink:

Oops. I didn’t see that while I was typing. Blame Aaron Jones. :wink:

Been a great weekend! Friday was the reunion reception at the theatre (heavily remodeled since I was last inside); Saturday was the ghost tour of the theatre, followed by the reunion dinner at the country club. I was a bit surprised by some of the people who remembered me! Today I had lunch with an old shipmate I hadn’t seen since early '86, followed by a visit with a cousin – first time I’ve ever met anyone from my father’s side of the family.

Tomorrow morning I start for home.

Friends over outside for a successful birthday visit and she liked her gifts. We watched the squirrels for a long time and munched on pastries and cheese, crackers, and grapes.

When I had succulents going nuts on me - and because I had some free time but little money, and because I used cheap pots I didn’t care about - I posted extras on Craigslist, FB Marketplace, FiveMiles, etc. for a few bucks a pop as a little side hustle.

Made some money; made space for more plants. Win-win!

Umm …

Dammit. Now I want pot roast!

Update: I settled for chicken pot pie, instead of pot roast. Close enough.

Plus I finally have the munchies enough to be hungry for something approaching a proper meal, rather than a handful of dry cereal and maybe a cup of applesauce (e.g. last night’s dinner).

Heh, is pot the important word here? And good on you for the munchies. Eat, friend, eat!

Mrs. L.A. suggested I make it again next weekend. I told her I’d cook whatever she wishes.

I’d sure like a tuna pot pie. Haven’t seen them since I was a kid.

I remember those, they were pretty good! I was always a fan of tuna noodle casserole with cream of mushroom soup sauce as well. Peas were a nice extra if I had them.

The yard guys both mentioned having children so I told them about the surplus produce drive-throughs. They had never heard of it and were really interested because their kids love fruit and would happily devour all they can get.

The yard guys recently moved here from Maricopa County (I17 and Thunderbird, horrible place to raise children) and said that they hadn’t heard of a no-income limit food program out that way so I think this must be something some wonderful person got started and has continued despite the founder having been forgotten.

This really is a shame, food insecurity shouldn’t be happening when tons of almost out of date food goes to landfills.

I’m all connected to the CPAP in the sleep study lab. Really pretty comfortable since I’m used to a nasal 02 cannula. Just a pillow on my nose, nothing over my mouth.

My wonderful tech will ramp things up and down to titrate the settings to get it just right.

Now to read til I get sleepy. This is about 2 hours early for me. I’m more on @purplehorseshoe and doggio’s schedule. I promised myself a good breakfast in the hospital cafeteria in the morning. Bacon! Eggs!Toasted bagel! Marmalade!

Sleep tight, cheers!

You sleep well too! I really hope this helps you sleep and then wake up refreshed. Bad sleep is as much of a silent killer as chronic stress-and they can be an endless cycle of stress/no sleep/stress about no sleep/no sleep until something finally changes for the good.

A mugful of broth, (most of) a chicken pot pie, and now some ice cream? Whhaatt? That’s practically a 3-course meal.

{ swings pocket watch } Youuuuuu aaaarrre gettinnnnng verrrrrry sleeeeepy …

did no one not know it was national cheeseburger day ?

hmm on a Sunday? that’s odd as it’s usually dinner all-day otherwise the dinner items don’t usually come out until around 4 o clock

we had bobs big boy out here and near the end of its life it had a small breakfast buffet that would turn into a lunch dinner buffet but if you hit it just right they’d have the morning leftovers with the afternoon evening stuff id be eating pot roast with cheese strudel …or muffins and salad

You got it, sister!

I’ve been telling doctors for 2 years that something was wrong. I got “whaddaja expect at your age?” and/or “whaddaja expect at your weight?”

Asthma, hiatal hernia, sleep apnea and paralyzed diaphragm later I’d bet my house that not a one of them will say: “you were right, something was wrong”.

The CPAP overnight went well~I did fine with just the minimalist nasal mask. The tech said my awakening score went from 13+ to less than 1, i.e. normal with the CPAP. She also said I got a lot more REM sleep, which is the holy grail I was seeking.

Now the sleep doctor has to read the data and then he will call in the order for a CPAP to my medical supply company. She said 7-10 business days for that and then heaven only knows how soon the supply chain will cough up a unit for me. CPAP supply is all screwed up, Covid and then a huge recall last year of the biggest brand. Could be months….but it’s already been months….grr.
