Now it won't be instantaneous 'cause he will have to go through the approval process, but I think we can expect to see him within a few days.


Yeah! Can’t wait!


That would be nice, and good for him too I think.

As for Mrs. Exp, we seriously need some contact for her daughters or something.

Btw one of my phone problems is I'm not sure I can do long distance and what the consequences might be (it being an Obamaphone under T-Mobile).


I don't even have her daughters' last names so have no way to look them up.

Bryan: Then why isn't she here Smile   :)

JR: Because she is too ill and unable to be here. She had to give up driving and is moving closer to her daughters because of both physical and mental decline. I thought you understood that... Sorry if I wasn't clear enough, but I didn't want to say too much on a public forum.


quote:
Reed: Wish we knew which books she’s already read, perhaps a book might get her to call you?


Not sure about her reading abilities lately. I sent her step-by-step instruction on how to logon and how to post on this forum but she couldn't understand them. She tried real hard 'cause she really wanted to take Allan to task for one of his posts...

Missed my chance to call her today but I'll try again tomorrow.


I understood part of it, but some of that referred to before the decline. In any case I'm not even sure how I'd handle the phone call. And I'm not sure I mentioned but in one of the phones cases I was being pushed.

Just saying.

Don't worry about it, she doesn't seem to be answering the phone anyway. I know that she cannot hear the phone unless she is sitting right next to it, or if she is wearing her hearing aids, and that she doesn't wear them all the time.


I'm not particularly.

Part of it is because when I became 'born-again' people drifted out or in to my life, usually for short periods of time. All things considered it's amazing Amazon lasted as long as it did. Though not everybody on it. Doesn't mean I don't care, it just that I learned to 'let go'.

You may have limited minutes, but if you were looking for a job I’d doubt they’d limit your call to local jobs! Nevertheless, good point. Does our current president know you have that? He’s been trying to undo everything Obama did ... just saying!

Got my new cpap yesterday, this is the first time I’m trying to use it, hope I get some sleep, or some untiredness soon.

Hope you are able to get some good sleep 'cause girl you lookin' funny with those big loops under your eyes!

Of course, they don't look a bit better on me...went to bed at 9 PM and got up at 2 AM.


More of a problem of not staying awake and being tired, always. Got more done today, hoping that will increase each day!

When there is a person that lives alone and health is declining, it’s hard to just let go.

Me too.

Steve is awaiting the approval process and then should be able to log on.

Locally I know I have unlimited, not that I use it enough to worry. Long Distance I have no idea and would need to search.

Thankfully Trump is unaware so far. And he might need to remove Lifeline in order to remove the phones as I believe they fall under that program.

This song with the lyrics in the comment section rather reminds me of one of my early Buddhist/Sufi experiences, Expansion and Contraction IIRC.

I’m not sure there are any cell phones that don’t include long distance. Ours is very limited, and my MIL is a cellular iirc. Hers is $10-$15 a month. She can make long distance. Mine is an ATT limited plan, or rather a basic old program and works long distance. Of course, time adds up quickly we run over the 120 minutes when dealing with contractors who knows!

I've emailed Linda and she has contacted CJ. I've also sent Steve an email requesting he make sure he has filled out the entire registration form.

By the Holy Spirit. Definitely in my ex-wife's case. And I'm pretty sure in my 'adopted' sisters case. Otherwise my aversion to phones hasn't changed in decades.

Spoke with Steve again yesterday afternoon. He says he received an email stating that he was registered, and it asked "him" to "validate" it, but gave no instructions as to how to do that. Yet when he attempts to log on, he cannot.

Dunno where the glitch is.

Well bubbas and bubbettes, I'm just gonna be full of good news tonight.

NOT!

Just heard from Mary Jean's daughter Melanie. She says Mary Jean has taken another fall and broken her other hip. She will be in rehab for at least 2 months.

Melanie says she will be happy to print off an email and take it to Mary Jean for us. So send me your wishes (or type them here) and I will compose an email and send it tomorrow.

Also just got an email from Steve/yba. He is back in the hospital with pneumonia. But he is still looking forward to meeting us here!

Let's keep both of them in our thoughts and prayers.
