More Driveway and Hummingbirds

Hey you all,

Just wanted you to see the really great extra parking place that has been created for me to back up from my carport so that I don't have to back into the road that goes by our home. Our friends and landlords, Mark and Allie, have seen to the creation of the extra space as well as providing gravel for our driveway. They really are taking great care of "Mama Ruby" and "Daddy Dub".

The picture is of Mark (Right) and his helper, Carl. Of course, they stopped work for a minute for me to snap the picture.

I also snapped a picture of a hummingbird at the feeder. It is hovering in front of the feeder on the left. Click your mouse on the picture and it will enlarge so that you can see the hummer.
Mark enjoys sitting and having a cup of coffee mid morning and watching the hummingbirds with us.

Dub and I went into Jefferson City this afternoon and exchanged a utility cart that has to be assembled. I bought it at Walmart on Monday and intended to put it together Monday evening, and opened it only to discover that one of the shelves (pressed wood of course) was broken on the corner. Top quality stuff, you know. ha ha. Anyway, naturally, I couldn't put it together until now. I guess I may put it together late this evening. Or I may do it in the morning while I am up by myself, waiting for Dub to get up. He wasn't up today until around noon time.
I also bought some (human) joint repair called glucosamine and chondroitin. Does it work? I certainly hope so. If anyone out there who reads this can give me any information on how it has helped them, please let me know. I also bought some white knee high hose for helping those who have had heart surgery. Won't they look great with my walking shorts?
Spent some time relaxing playing computer games. I admit it. I am a computer game junkie.
Severely addicted.
Dub and I had a great deal of enjoyment sitting on our front porch today after we got back from Jefferson City. He helped me water my flowers also.
Well, that is about it for today. Just kind of chatting with you today. God bless each of you and I hope you have a great night and a good day tomorrow. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off.

Glucosamine et al does work. Reader's Digest listed it as having definite positive effects, and Daryl has used it for a couple of years now. It greatly decreased his knee joint pain (arthritis). Well worth it!

Thanks, Mom b,
I took the first dose this morning. I got the kind that you mix with water (a powder)which is lemon-lime flavored. Not too bad.
Has sodium bicarbonate in it and it fizzes. Am trying the knee highs and hope they will decrease swelling of my ankles. Time will tell.
love you
grammy (aka mom)

I have never used that stuff you got for pain so I can't help you. I love the new turn around place and the hummingbird is so easy to see when you blow the picture up. You place looks so nice and serene.
