Rain and Snow

Hey what is with this weather. First rain. They said we broke the record for rain set in 1919. We had 2 and1/4 in today. Then this afternoon it started snowing. I can't wait till we head south. Will be right after Christmas. I took a few pictures so here they are
Anybody for a swim. Lot of water on top. It ran over the other day

The truck is ready to head south too. It was lubed and oil changed last week. Now just have to get the trailer back Getting brakes checked and bearings greased.

Here is the front yard with the little pile of leaves that I vacumed last week. Glad that I got that done. Well that is that for tonight. Tomorrow I need to go get my new lenses for my glasses. Also need to get our new drivers licenses. We are both due by next year. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Exppensive car

On Tues the Saturn started acting up. Security light started flashing and engine light came on Wipers were on intermittent but went all the time sometimes. So today it went to gm dealer at Decatur. vcm module was bad. Let me tell you those things are $$$$$$$$ Labor is not cheap either. It is mounted up under the dash behind the radio. It controls all the stuff inside the car. Like door locks wipers and what all. We got new remotes for the car. This afternoon I finished up the leaves. Only two loads this time. Glad that is done. It was a nice day to do it. Think it got up to 59 this afternoon. Rain coming in tomorrow afternoon late. Guess that is it for now.  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers. We went to church this evening. Great service. Not all that many there but i would say about 200 or so. Today I went to the eye doctor. My cataracts are not all that bad yet. I do have wrinkles on my macula I think he said Only in the left one. He said that is unusual. My left one is worse for as far as 20-30 or whatever . I think the left one is 20 40 and right one is 20 30. Glasses will be in next week. Still waiting on one phone call as to where we will go in Florida. Should decide by Saturday. Need to get that done pretty soon.  Well that is it for tonight  Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

Almost turkey day

Yesterday we went out to Bruegaman lumber for a Amish benefit. They had pies and homemade bread and grilled chicken dinners. We had ours last night after getting home form church. They started cooking the pies at 3:30 in the morning. Today we went out to Bescanson church for their annual turkey dinner. They had Turkey ham dressing, Mashed taters green beans cranberry salad pies and beer or coffee. We met
Gene and Sylvia there. Had a nice visit. Later this afternoon I started on the leaves again. We have one more week before they pick up again. I got one load and have some more in the trailer. Hope to finish up tomorrow. Thelma had eye appt tomorrow afternoon and Tues Eli gets groomed and we get tires on the front of the Vue and Wed I have eye appt. Boy busy week. Last week we took the trailer to New Castle to have the brakes and bearings done. Also going to try and get a new faucet in the kitchen. Well guess that's it for now. Later Ron Thelma and Eli
