Good morning mutants!
I have a question for the retired among us. Is there an official nap time. I have had very few naps since retiring. I had many more days with naps pre-retirement and I want to be sure I'm doing this right. Up early - doing lots of things - no naps. Feels right, but also oh so wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Nap time is whenever you get tired....... Mine is usually after lunch, turn on some tranquility flute music, cuddle up with pups, and even though i might not sleep.... I rest for an hour.... Began that when i was very anemic a few years ago.... It still helps... Plus gives the pups special time.... They know when it us time..

Don.... Two years ago on Dec 28, i had to help my first Westie go to the rainbow bridge. He was my first very special dog, who also saved Larrys life... That was hard, but he was so miserable... I cried for 2 solid weeks... Really hard on me, i understand.... Prayers to do what he needs.....



Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!

The rule is, but you'd have to check the ancient scrolls on this, that mutating retirees must grab the nap-opp whenever it presents itself. IOW, if you've carried in the shopping and see a golden aura around the couch or recliner, you must nap. The ice cream will wait.

Don't quote me on this. I'm sure it's in the scrolls. 'Scuse me, an aura has just appeared over my favorite chair. My first cuppa will have to wait.

Yawn!

Hey Don,

Thanks for the update on Gunny, I sure feel your pain and share your willingness to do what's needed for your fur kids. Marcia and I will continue to wish you and yours the best.

Official mutant nap time OMNT . . . . . . well spoken mutants. I have nothing new to add to your wise utterances.

Good news and sad realities concerning Gunny. Enjoy each remaining day.

BTW, left eye must have really been mistreated with the laser thing. It waters A LOT and normal vision is still a work in progress. Remaining positive.

OMNT has been put on hold as we busy ourselves with mutating... it's starting to come together.

Steve, your camp is entirely too neat and organized. At CL when you take a OMNT I will fix it up for you.

Sue, I like your style!

In the mean time....

We will keep our eye out down here for more rustic places - but for our purposes we are good to go here. Still have not been to the pools and spas - rock shop to polish up some gems - or to the wood shop to see if any of the guys want to tackle sanding and staining our picnic table when it arrives. I don't know about the gym - other than it is small and I am large so that won't do.... Have seen many going to play cards... not really something I want to do. Annie says she wants to go to the stained glass classes. I may take Spanish. Our neighbor has been here - in their same site as a winter Texans for 15 years. They are from Missouri. The neighbor across the street has been here 11 winters and they're from Iowa. Nice folks one and all so far.

BTW - exchanged text messages with Mel yesterday. The W word has her swamped right now. She says she will be back with us regularly in January. They are alive and doing fine!
