Distress Signal

There are some positives in this time of isolation. I have gotten to know a sweet and generous man who plies me with tomatoes and barbecue and another very nice man and his wife. It seems that we have kind of drawn together in this horrid year and help each other more. I am leaving facebook after being hacked numerous times. It is simply not worth the trouble. We have each other on this blog site and no one is trying to bother us. I feel that I will miss family news but my sister and I talk at least once a week. I had an accident and I don't know if I tripped over my own feet or the garden hose but I tore a hole in my chin and my collar bone and I am black and blue. It was a miracle that no bones were broken and that my blood thinner did not cause a brain bleed. Little Jose, who is often denigrated as a lap dog was watching and alerted Ted to come out and help me. Now my mask can serve two purposes...disguising the injury and being considerate of others. Jose got his shots yesterday and I must say the vet is a lot more careful than the doctors. You have to call them, tell them where you are parked and they come and get your dog and your credit card. and return the dog after it is treated. Jose hates them and their grooming parlor and always tries to get me to save him. For a more creative distraction, I ordered paint supplies and we are going to try and get back in the groove. We have not painted in so long that we have lost what little skill we have but are trying to get back in the groove . I padded a wheel chair for Ted because it is impossible for him to stand up for any length of time. The best advice my Dr. ever gave me was "whatever you do, do not stop moving." So I do. And it hurts but it keeps me mobile and without a cane or a crutch or a walker. She says that I am her healthiest ninety year old in her practice. It seems that the heat is killing and the bugs are worse this year. we have been cursed with noseeums. I am in dire need of a hair stylist and need a make over. Vanity is not entirely dead yet. Love to all of you...

I'm so glad you're OK! We're close if you need us.

Sending you healing hopes and hugs, dear Jeri. Feel better soon!

I hope you will choose to stay on Facebook. I will miss our interactions there. But if and when you do decide to leave, be sure to delete BOTH your personal accounts. I think the one you don't use is the one getting hacked. If you would just delete that one, I think it would solve your problems.

When Jose was trying to get Ted's attention, did he sit up like he does when he wants something? I'm so glad you survived that fall.

No, he ran around and around in circles so Ted had to look outside. He is by far the smartest dog we have ever had, and he has such a tiny little head.

Last thing you need is pain from a fall added to everyday pain.
I don't know how some people get "hacked" on fb repeatedly and some, such as myself, never do. Perhaps it isn't a real hack--maybe a clone or something else. Or maybe it's not enough security. How do you recover your account if the hacker changes your password?

I am pretty ugly with a split lip and buggered up nose and big wound on my chin. But I'll get through it just fine.

I’m sorry to hear you got injured and hope it doesn’t hurt too much while it’s healing. It’s so easy to fall, it’s scary.
I have this mental picture of Jose and I can just see him desperate to get away from the vet, or zooming to Ted to let him know you’re hurt, etc. He sounds adorable.
We seem to have a lack of bugs here, especially the bees, and it might be sue to weather weirdness. Even the cicadas in the treetops haven’t started buzzing yet, as they usually have by this time.

I am trying to figure out a face book persona as Jose the wonder dog. I am sure it won't take anyone long to solve the puzzle. we don't have smart phones or I would send you some pictures. My best was a portrait of Adrienne but she didn't like it so I am going to put some wild color on it.

I’m sad you won’t be on FB but I’ll def check in here to see what you are up to. Keep moving, solid advice! I need to heed it as well, I’ve def gained weight over this pandemic. There are worse things! I will try to get back in the groove as well.
I’m so sorry you fell!!! Another war wound... I have several.

I wish you could figure out how to post pictures! I’d love to see some of your work. If I send you my phone number could you text them to me?

Kristy when I get going, I am going to send you a picture. It may be a funky chicken or a kitchen witch. One that will tickle you.
