I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

Going to be 90 today. That spells humidity. Maybe a pop-up rain squall. Had one yesterday. They can be strange here. We didn't have a drop here in the woods, but two blocks from home the streets looked like a real pour down had come. Got part way into town and lo and behold the pavement became suddenly dry. I know this happens but we had not seen it for a while.

All seems well here. Taking it easy today. Didn't sleep well last night but I'll make it up tonight. I always do. Will be glad to get to the week-end so that I can stay home and work.

Hope you all will have a really fine day.

Celia & Sandy - hair looks great!

MCBaker- great colors in that skirt!

Betrayal- love those little birds too!

Racheldog- welcome to the group. I didn't have chemo, so I can't say.

Beavertx- our roof was done in November. It's loud, leave if you can.

Illinioslady- I'm glad your procedure went well, even though a tumor was discovered. I'm thinking it was better found sooner, than later.

We've had super high heat, lot of downpours, and today is beautiful. We're finishing up school close out, and we'll be in the pool soon.

School 7 full days, 3 half days left. I'm ready, so ready, for it to be over! Enjoy the day, stay healthy.

Love the robin's nest. I especially love watching robins work in our yard. They have been a lot more sparse around here though the past two or three yrs. I have to admit we did quit putting bird feeders out. We attracted so many ( raccoons, possums etc. ) yard visitors that were not highly desirable. I don't mind them, but the raccoons get especially destructive and the clean-up got very tiresome. We live in a heavily wooded area so there is still plenty of food -- just maybe not as easy to get. We are far happier ourselves not having constant clean-up going on.


Will be really hot today and I'm not looking forward to that. We should do okay as I'll be in a/c where I work today and Dh still has us set on 76 -- so it feels pretty nice in here.

I hope you all have a most wonderful day.

The baby robins are adorable. Our porch (house) wren laid eggs in a nest that is an ornament on a door wreath one year and in a hanging fake flower basket another year. We have 2 bird bottles and she chose one of them this year so the porch is off base right now. Since they can lay more than one clutch a year we are forced to use the patio instead but it doesn't get as much shade now since those trees are the ones took out the master bedroom.

Here are the latest photos of the quickly developing baby parakeets. They are leaving the bowl more, still can't figure how to get back in but prefer to sleep there since they "cuddle". Keeping mom super busy since they are constantly hungry. Anyone who has had small children know how that goes. You can now appreciate their head, back and wing feathers, chest feathers are still a gray "fluffave a good weekend. We have rain today and lower temps than for the past few boiling days. My garden is calling so I hope I can get a few temperate days to address some of the issues. Have a good weekend.

Yes, they do look like twins in coloration. However, there were two separate eggs (can't imagine fitting 2 yolks in those tiny eggs) and they did hatch on different days so they are siblings. I should have taken a picture of the eggs though getting mom off them was hard as well. I don't know if she could have handled 3 hatchlings if that third egg had hatched. Even dad appears frazzled at times when he helps with feedings. LOL

The birds are so sweet to watch, as the grow so quickly.

I had a rather different day on Friday. Normal school day was shortened due to a teacher having a doctor appt, so a late class was able to be done right after home room. I took advantage of this to run to Urgent Care to be tested for a UTI. I had minimal discomfort but tell tale super cloudy urine made me check it out. Sure enough, I'm now on Macrobid for 7 days.

All my friends have heard me complain about a pain in the right cheek of my butt. It started way back when I did that foolish 30 day sit up/crunch/leg lift challenge, the leg lifts were causing an issue and I continued with the other exercises but quit the leg lifts. I thought it was muscular pain, everyone I spoke with thought the same. I had been stretching, using the foam roller, and seeing my chiropractor muscle therapist. Varying thoughts on what muscle I injured, but it was over 3 months ago and any muscle injury should have healed. SO after Urgent Care for the UTI, and after lunch, I ran to our walk in orthopaedics clinic, Bone & Joint. I went there because I really didn't know where else to start. Long story short, they took x-rays that show my hamstring muscle tore off a piece of bone - not sure from the hip or the pelvis (she may have told me and I just blanked out when she was showing me the x-ray). I need to get an MRI, and after that I'll be seeing a sports medicine specialist who is their hip guy. Google indicates it might be a hamstring avulsion that took a piece of bone. I know ...stop using Dr. Google, but most of what I read indicates surgery to repair it, 3-6 month recovery, a hip brace to immobilize, and on & on (surgery site is the fold under your butt cheek). Text briefly w stepson (gastro Dr) who said he read sometimes they try to fix it with bed rest first. After staying indoors and isolating for over a year for covid, the thought of bed rest for weeks makes me ill. And all I thought was maybe I'd get a shot of cortisone in the keester! That's my vent for the day.

It was ok weather yesterday, cooler without a lot of sun. When I came back from ortho appt, both my grand niece and partner were in the pool. I don't know how she talked him into it, the water was warmer than the air (82 vs 69). Today we had some rain before I got up, but still cloudy and only 61. Forecast calls for rain Sunday and Monday too. Our 90+ degree days are gone, highs in the 70's. Enjoy your weekend!

Really hate that you got the news you did Cindy, but OTOH there are finally some answers coming. Maybe something new for repairs of the spot will have turned up, but I would think 'google' might know that. I guess it is just my wish for you. We all use some form I think of google. I use Web MD. You mentioned having a place to start -- and a lot of times ( don't know about you for sure ) Web M.D. is it for me.

Hot and humid here. Not sure how much longer we will have this. It is hard on people for sure. We are used to it here and just don't do much at all outside on the worst days.

Hope you all have a great Saturday.

Still not too pleasant here today, but it will change as least to less humidity. That will bring some blessings. I may be able to get some work on my car ( the sort of excessive cleaning routines I like to do ) done while we are not going outside to automatic sweats. Glad it has cleared for you Carole. Finally got my glasses -- ordered on Apr. 27th. I was so irritated but it was just one of those series of events making the experience much more negative than positive.

Bummer, Cindy. I had something similar a few months before my IDC dx--turned out to be a torn glute. (A decade before that, a chunk of my iliac crest had actually broken off, and it was visible on X-ray. The last thing you want to hear your orthopedist say--especially in front of a gaggle of med students--is "WTF???" Both times, a hiking cane, physical therapy, ibuprofen, topicals (Lidoderm & Flector patches), ice and time did the trick--no need to go under the knife. Hope you can stay out of the O.R. too.

Mary, what a difference a week makes! Not 10 days ago, Chicago (with a high of 49F) was actually colder than northern Alaska. This week, it's been hot enough for my cilantro to "bolt," beyond reclamation. Fortunately, even the spindly frilly leaves and tiny blossoms are still not only edible but delicious. Guacamole toast for breakfast tomorrow. Picked another strawberry this morning. Have about a dozen blossoms and three or more berries "on the hoof," still white. The black raspberries have begun to develop & ripen too. Farmers' market again tomorrow (such a joy to have one in walking distance, and during the afternoon to boot).

Nothing special planned today. Just trying to keep up.

We have a Farmer's Market here. I don't go much. I know they do fine w/o my input, but it is a longer drive than I wish to make and while they open early -- it can be pretty toasty on the high humidity days. Glad you get to enjoy one so close Sandy. I'd likely spend a lot of change there if I could walk to ours.

The baby parakeets are growing so fast. They still sleep in the bowl but spend the day exploring the floor of the cage. One actually climbed up on the perch, turned around and then appeared stuck. The Dad was quite concerned during this adventure. It did manage to get down but I did not see it, darn.

They are quite clamorous when hungry which seems to be every 5 minutes while awake. Here are some pictures from over the weekend and today. Their chest feathers appear to be coming in and some of the feathers on their heads stand up straight and look like a mohawk.

I have been working on some family genealogy for my husband's side of the family and it has been a challenge. His grandparents emigrated from the Austro-Hungarian Empire and some of the records I have been able to find are in Hungarian. My husband neither speaks (except for some salty phrases he learned from his GF) nor reads Hungarian. Using a Hungarian-English dictionary is painstaking for translation. The area they came from now is part of Romania. We have his GF's passport issued in 1926 and it is in excellent condition. He traveled back home then and seeing all the countries he had to traverse and borders he had to cross is remarkable. It was an expensive trip when you see that many countries charged $10 for visas and there are several in the passport. He appears to have been gone for nearly 2 months. He and one brother remained here but the other two brothers returned after their time in the US. They are the elusive ones and remained unnamed until we found a photo of the four with the names on the back. The brother who remained here was as erect in his 80's as he appears in this photo. He had a head full of thick white hair that had been black when younger. At my FIL's funeral he told me "he was a handsome man (I agree)" and then described in detail what he wanted for his funeral. He died within the year and had what he described. Like his brother, each only had one child (a son for GF and a daughter for this brother) so not much family here. I was able to find his ggf's name and the family for his gm including parents and siblings. I like genealogy because it is like a mystery and each page brings a new surprise or challenge. I used to haunt archives so using the computer is easier in one sense but I loved those archives that smelled of history. Anyone else do genealogy?

Still have questions that remain unanswered and swear we are descendants of "talkers" not writers so I will continue searching and researching.
