  1. in to check progress. me eyes are blurry reading to see when due date is. I am on my satellite for now and can do the 'follow' thingey. got all my updates done so that is over thank goodness. good thoughts to all. (hugs) LindaC
  2. Fema gave me about 1/6th of what I need. Of all times for printer to not cooperate. Took a flash drive with document pages of info including photos to the newspaper office to print so I can hopefully pick up today and get to post office. My box springs and mattress are still in living room :-) it is a true waiting game.
  3. oops that is over 100 miles west of me.
  4. this was June 1 and floods did recede leaving so much disaster. this was the El Reno storm that produced the F5 tornado over 100 west of me. It traveled hwy #40 dropping flood waters. as I said I know I am blessed.
  5. From the album: Speculation

    I took this at 7 Saturday morning out the kitchen window. the power pole in middle of photo is about 25 ft from the house. water has never been this side of it and this time was to the house and filled my septic tank plus seeped inside. the green you are seeing is grass marshy under water. the creek is at the tree line (100 ft away) beyond the pole and water pouring into that from higher pasture area. (the very light color is the water pouring over). usually the creek is very low but it does over flow now and then. storm cellar got 2 foot of water in at the doorway. I had been down there from 9 to 12 the night before then came up with only misty rain, just as weather coverage was ending. that soon changed to heavy rains, thunder and lightening. I had left my purse in a closed large tote but they were dumped over and floating. The memory foam used for a bed is destroyed, blankets have been washed. salvaged what I could and tossed the rest including wallet. weather radio and regular radio were floating so they were tossed. also left a container of dvds and flash drives down there for ‘safety’ and they were laid out on a towel on a long table hoping to dry out. dvds are fine. Daughter put flash drives in dishes of white rice to absorb moisture and it worked. The same procedure allowed my soaked Kendell to charge but it is flashing so back to rice dish. the floods came into the north end of my home, soaked cabinets, floors of linoleum and carpeting. No flood insurance (my agent said no one in the area has it), fema (per local agent) most likely to cover State and Counties but not individuals and me, a senior lady, on SS with this dilemma. fans are running in attempt to dry carpet in bedroom but soaked padding underneath will only grow mold. Under bathroom linoleum will grow mold also. with me having health issues the smell is not good. Pretty much smells like garbage. I know I am blessed it wasn’t worse. lc

    Things to 'thunk' about...
  7. Just read this entire thread. saluting all those waiting and wanting a sneak peek.... I won't enter this year but will watch the forum in anticipation for all. I am back to dial up if you remember how slow it is. better than nuttin. last night I was tempted to get my satellite account opened but battled myself through that. ((hugs)) to all, LindaC in OK
  8. thanks guys/gals. I know my heart has gone out to others who have had to do this. memories? you bet 15 years worth. I knew I wanted a dog and had always wanted a tiny chihuahua but the kids always wanted large dogs. Now it was my time retired to the country. I told my daughter if I got a chi it could fall in one of the critter holes on the property never to be seen again. She said I should get something heartier. looked and looked. walked in to a friends home and saw a tiny 3 month old rat terrier and knew that was the kind. friend said 'oh no you can't have hubbys baby'. I said I would wait for her to have mine. waited over a year and that little one named Chigger had 3 pups and only Charlie survived. Other than really bad teeth, growths on her body that haven't showed cancer but could sometime and cataracts Charlie had cocidiosis which is a minute microscopic parasite which is in the soil from wild birds and/or chickens. I use to raise chickens. It use to show a couple times a year then more and more then constantly. I know she was in pain. I almost lost her last year from regular annual shots and nails clipped. That is how much this stuff stresses. I said never again would I put her through that. Need out of the house so I am going 50 miles to a home improvement store looking for a container for my memory foam mattress for the storm cellar so it doesn't get spiders in it. I am better today but it doesn't take much for me to get going again... ((hugs)) to all
  9. With a sad and heavy heart had to have Charlie put to sleep yesterday. She would have been 15 soon and my buddy since she was 5 weeks old. I miss her so much and always will. She was in pain with health issues and getting worse.
  10. Will always have the ill health issues BUT decided I just can't afford online service. bummer. In the country and can only have satellite. what started out as a high enough cost increased about 1/3. No dial up out here anymore but it wouldn't do me any good at this time. Why it is even letting me online today I don't have a clue :-) Always thinking of everyone... Wishing you all well. ((hugs)) LindaC
  11. I've only used Magic Water. love it. It's a 2 part thingey. I did a pond also. should have painted base darker. Will do that when I do my lake scene... http://www.unrealdetails.com/ be sure to look in galleries. it is geared to rail road layouts but great ideas there.
  12. Prayers and ((hugs)) winging their way to you and yours.
  13. the link says Buy Now OR best offer.... see what you can do there. only 2.50 shipping so that is a plus.

    Wheelie bin

    I have one of these fun items. My friends son in law works for a company in England selling Real life ones and these are demos. :-)
  16. A train within a train. I like :-) The poster on the side is outstanding. keeping up with posts John. love to see the progress.
  17. yes I used for foundation covering a 1"x2". the only glue (and I tried many) to work was E6000 in a tube. It has a terrific odor/fumes so I had to close off a doorway so my birds wouldn't be affected...... Holly let me know about the glue and it is wonderful. good luck.
  18. there was a photo of the teeny base building with a quarter beside it. That was what we were to receive. I will build mine to put in attic of main house. A doll house for my dollhouse. Thanks so much Greenleaf for the gift.
