Bought a house last week!

Joe, welcome to the NW. Kingston is a great community, just a ferry ride and a bridge from me. Any plans yet for the third bay of your new garage? After the all moving boxes are unpacked and folded up, that is.

My first impression was that you bought a garage with an attached house.
Congratulations!

For what it's worth, Perry, I know 2 people with Type II who no longer need to take medications due to changes in exercise & diet. We're all different, so there's not guarantee that will happen to you, but it's worth trying for.

Cheers,

I thought small hands was one of the benefits when I switched to a lady doctor, but she has an engagement/wedding ring pair that makes my eyes get real big.

Once upon a long time ago, I had a prostate check by a lady doctor. I said, "Well, OK, but I usually don't go for the kinky stuff until after the third date." She was most definitely NOT amused. I couldn't see her, but I'm pretty sure she wound it up like in fast pitch softball. I'm not sure if that was her watch or her elbow that hurt so bad... :ack:

I once went to my Ophthalmologist because my eyes were continually watering. She rolled my eyelids back to see what was going on (my eyelids were inflamed underneath because I was drinking waaay too much coffee apparently) and apologized because she was sure it wasn't too comfortable. I remarked that it was better than a prostate exam, to which she replied smile, "I'm not going there!"

Gawd, JD, you do make me laugh. I'm just glad (and my computer is also glad) that I wasn't drinking coffee when I read that.

Cheers,

Perry, what's the forecast? More snow? Bad time for snow. It will be very heavy. Have known folks faced with that problem to spray their trees with water ti keep the snow of. Of course if it's going below freezing that might not be a good idea.

God luck!

I think I would just shoot myself if I had snow in June. That just isn't right!

LOL, it's 60F (15C) here today, you can hear the snow melting. Very rare for us to get snow in June. In fact the last time we had a dump like this was in the late 1980's.

It's not worth a bullet :lol:
