Week-long Welcomings from Moosylvania: April 28th

Welcome to The Moose Pond! The Welcomings posts give the Moose, old and new, a place to visit and share words about the weather, life, the world at large and the small parts of Moosylvania that we each inhabit.

Welcomings will be posted at the start of each week (usually Saturday night with a Sunday date). To find the posts, just bookmark this link and Voila! (which is Moose for “I found everyone!!”).

The format is simple: each day, the first moose to arrive on-line will post a comment welcoming the new day and complaining (or bragging!) about their weather. Or mentioning an interesting or thought provoking news item. Or simply checking in.

So … what’s going on in your part of Moosylvania?

NOTE: The comments page will split off after 20 or so left margin comments with the most recent comments on the current page. To see the older comments, scroll to the bottom of the page (right before “Leave A Reply”) and use the Pages Tool to view previous pages, shown here with 3 pages of comments available and Page 2 circled.


  1. It’s 68 heading for 78 and trying to be sunny. Not doing a good job of it right now but I can see blue patches to the west so there’s hope. Yesterday we generated 15.3 KWHs and the m-t-d at 38.8 still isn’t on track but it’s not as badly off track as it was yesterday. Early days yet. We shall see what we shall see.

    Talked to Fineena last night. She sounded a lot more cogent than the last time. After a 3rd moved in 4 days she’s at health & rehab center in a bedroom community of Charlotte she’s totally unfamiliar with but at least somebody – her roommate, not any of the medical staff or the “friend” who found the place – finally told her where she is. She’s still in a lot of pain and has been dealing with GI problems ever since she left the actual hospital. She’s not sure if it’s one of the drugs or the food. She said the 1st place they took her to was filthy. This one’s just cold. It’s clean enough. She’s not sure how long she’ll be there, she hopes not long, but there’s “supposed” to be a meeting Monday with the medical team to finally tell her the results of the biopsy, her diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plans. Another we shall see what we shall see.

    Far as I know everybody else is truckin’ along. Not great but no worse. Except for the “another day older and deeper in debt” sort of worse for several of them. Anyway, off to start my boosting day. Holding the Good Thoughts for everybody. {{{Meeses}}}

    • Glad you finally have some good news about our friend and that she will have some news about her diagnosis on Monday.

      I’ll call her tomorrow, after I’ve become coherent.

  2. Good Saturday morning, Meese. Guess who woke up far too early and has been trying to catch up ever since. Outside it’s 53 F. and raining on and off. Good. We were beginning to get into drought mode again.

    We had a great Friday night audience and the cast, having had some rest, was in fine fettle. The only thing that went wrong was a little glitch in Scene II. It’s always Scene II. Word of mouth has been great, by the way. Everyone seems to be having a good time. A six-year-old girl who attended with her grownups said she liked Aunt Eller and the churn best of all.

    This evening is our last performance—tickets can still be bought at the door—so after tonight we’ll have nothing left but the memories. They’ll be good ones, though. Next week will be very busy with a political meeting, my writers’ group meeting, the Cast Party, and a Girls’ Lunch on Friday. Dearly and I are going to have to look for another car at some point, our current one is going to have problems down the road.

    I can’t believe the vindictiveness of men toward women! Did y’all hear about the illegitimate son of a diseased camel who is trying to sue his ex-partner for getting an abortion in a blue state? Texas men are insane! No wonder M’Daughter and her hubby want to get out of there! They’ll be loading a rented van with their livestock (two chihuahuas and an aged cat) on May 14th to begin the trek north.

    Well, I think I’ll try to rest a bit because I’m still feeling the effects of waking up at 4 blinking o’clock this morning. May the Fourth be with everyone at the Pond!

  3. Good morning, 43 and cloudy in my world today. My housekeeper will be here today, I made progress with the laundry yesterday, and Bri was here for some garden tending. My legs are really complaining but things are getting done regardless. We’re cooking a cinco de mayo dinner tomorrow so I’ve got food and flower prep to do today. Just 7 of us and a simple menu but after 3 family weekends in a row I’m gratefully weary. Best wishes to all.
