  1. Wonder why she deleted. Maybe someone told her to battle Trump is useless. And it is. Do you have a place to stay while you are building merrieeee?
  2. Good luck merrieeee . We are fine in this house as it is on one level,. Our front yards are taken care of by our HOA dues. But I hate the back and side yards. My goal this year is to fix the back yard but the side yard is a Japanese garden and needs manicuring. We hire a Bonsai gardener to trim the trees to keep them low but so many weeds pop up in the summer.
  3. twilight, you might want to check on the PART bus service. Its reasonably priced and does long distance routes across the state or maybe someone at the NIP is heading that way and can offer a ride. I live in Winston, so I am closer to Charlotte than Raleigh. I plan on attending and have it on my calendar so I don't plan anything else. I usually have to arrange for someone to check in on my husband, walk the dog and get them both meals.
  4. I hope you all have really cold weather gear. That is so cold. Funny that Alaska is having unusually high temperatures. I get cold in 40 degree weather and have taken to wearing a hat and scarf in addition to my coat and gloves whenever I go outside. Stay warm all of you in the midwest.
  5. Looking forward to Drop the Mic.Recognized his outfit from the Gala. I could use a do over of the Gala.
  6. An article in CNN had some members of her staff answering back. The one thing they did not defend was her refusal to prosecute Steve Mnuchin, Secretary of Treasury, who at that time foreclosed on many people who lost their homes. In some cases it was indefensible for him to do that.
  7. We just had some ice. A lot of power outages and lots of detours because of trees down. I didn't run into any ice on the roads but then again I don't usually go out at night in bad weather. In the morning afterward, Monday there was still a lot of ice up in the trees. After that 12 to 14 inch snow we had earlier I think we had enough snow for the rest of the year. School was out for a week that time.
  8. Sorry to hear about Clay's grandmother. Grandmother's are always there to lend support, so it must have hurt everyone in the family. Hi sisterbear30.
  9. Happy New Year to all! Sounds like Clay was in great voice. Hope we can hear it at some point. I had hopes I could see the performances but that was dashed. Looking forward to pages 2 to 365 the rest of this year.
  10. Feel better today. Everyone left at 10 after a hint from husband. Very nice gifts. Right now listening to a Maria Callas CD. Love her dramatic voice. Guess I won't make it to NYC t.o see Clay and Ruben this time. Hopefully I'll have other chances. I hope everyone had a great Christmas.
  11. Merry Christmas to all. Waiting for my family to have breakfast with us. Unfortunately it is already 2:15 pm. Finally cooked something for us, but now feel like I'm coming down with a cold. Haven't opened our gifts yet. I'm ready for bed again. Ha. Typical day waiting for granddaughter.
  12. Glad you made it merrieeee. Still hoping I might get there, but who knows. Love the reviews they are getting. I could never have imagined such a reception in NYC.
  13. Thanks for checking on things merrieeee. I really can't stay up. EST.
  14. Wow! Thanks for the videos. It is pouring down snow here in NC. Newspaper said 12 inches so far. About twice as much as we normally get in a snowfall. I am enjoying having some time to myself since I can't go out in this weather. Takes several days before the streets are plowed. Our development has private streets so we have already been plowed once, not that you could tell several hours later. Got a steroid shot in my knee and can walk again so I am thinking of going out to NYC after Christmas. Start wrapping for the NIP on Friday and three more days after that so before Christmas is almost impossible to do. But after may be doable. .
  15. Enjoy your day off ldyj. The sun is peeking out here and I need to get started on decorating for Christmas.
  16. Great picture of Clay! Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. We ate and have a half of turkey breast leftover. One son and granddaughter came over. Even fed the dog some turkey. Talked to our west coast son.
  17. Thanks so much. I'd hate to miss it. I haven't seen my brother and his family for at least 5 years which I also hate to miss. I just hope their show is amazingly successful.
  18. Not sure how, but this old computer logged on to the new address automatically. Most likely will not make it to NYC to see Clay and Reuben as I injured my right knee again and can't be sure it will heal by then. Probably my MCL again which last time was just a sprain but hurts like the dickens when I walk. If It feels better by Dec I'll look for a bus and some last minute tickets.
  19. Hope I can make it to NYC. Promised to take my grandaughter who is applying to NYU. But I'll be wrapping for four days and another week she has dance performances. So many things to arrange including costs.
  20. Didn't have any idea about a cd release party, although there was one in my town.Drove to Target before work to get a copy of MOAM. I was not on any boards then although I think there was an AI board that I looked at periodically.After the Independance Tour in our town I went to Krispie Kreme where Clay was signing autographs. We also had our pictures taken in front of the store in groups as there were many people waiting in line. Still have the autographed copy of MOAM but the photo has long disappeared off my computer. I still have the hard drive and some time when I actually have a quiet life, I'll spend some time looking for it.
  21. How did playbiller and I miss the eHP? Great show. Laughed so hard at Clay, comedian extraordinaire. He was a little hoarse after the auctions so kept drinking water. The auctioneer and Clay were so funny too. They added stuff to auction until Clay got the amount he wanted. Nothing for me to bid on as they no longer do the baskets or small items. Even the send a child to camp has a $300. limit. Just glad that they were able to get to where they needed to be. While he performed His cousin brought out a new bottle of water. He took a taste and said "whats in here?essential oils I suppose" and made a face. Later his assistant brought him some tea and honey which really seemed to help his voice and he finished strong. Singer great, band great. The Gala started at 8 and lasted until 11:30 and the audience was still disappointed that it ended. So funny when Ethel danced with Clay, Ben and Shaun during Purple Rain. Congratulations to Twilight who got a founders award. Another to Dancermom of CV. Both very deserving recipients. Loved your speech Twilight.
  22. I'll be leaving for the Gala Friday Anyone else going? Have to arrange so many things before I leave. Food, people to walk the dog, wash clothes, pack, etc. etc. My husband can't walk outside alone or drive, so have to get people to check on him. Looking forward to going again and I really need to get away.
  23. Not too bad. We lost power for 3 hours today and it has been raining and a little windy. We are pretty far from the coast so it hasn't even made it out this far yet. Funny thing is that cancelled school on Thursday and Friday and we barely had a drop of rain on Friday. My husband was so desperate for some media that he sat there at an old crank radio turning that knob for about an hour just to hear a little talk radio (NPR). All is well now.
